COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The large banner at one end of the Buckeyes' indoor practice facility simply says, "The Chase."

It doesn't refer to being chased, but rather to chasing something or someone else.

Even though his team might just be favored in every game on its schedule, Ohio State's Urban Meyer refuses to believe that his team is anything other than an underdog. In other words, it is a pursuer.

He believes teams get complacent when they're on top — and Meyer despises complacency.

So even though the Buckeyes are picked to beat San Diego State by four touchdowns on Saturday — and also that they're riding the nation's longest winning streak at 13 games — Meyer continues to push the mindset that they've accomplished nothing.
