As we mentioned yesterday, it's Patriot Week at Ohio State in honor of Memorial Day. Head coach Urban Meyer wants his players to honor the military and learn about the importance of the democratic system.
Yesterday, the Buckeyes recited the Pledge of Allegiance before a workout. This morning, Lee Greenwood's famous song "Proud To Be An American" blared on the weight room sound system as the team got a lift in.
Meyer clearly takes Patriot Week seriously. This isn't surprising. He's always trying to broaden his player's horizons and get them thinking about more than football.
