(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)Ohio State enters October with a 5-0 record, a top-five ranking and the inside track at winning the Big Ten East. That is a pretty good resume at this point in the season.However, Urban Meyer thinks things could get much better. If that happens, it would be a scary thing for OSU’s opponents.Today, Meyer said that despite his team’s start, which includes a win over TCU in Dallas and last week’s comeback over Penn State, he thinks the Buckeyes haven’t reached their ceiling yet.In fact, he doesn’t think they’ve even come “close.”“We’re 5-0, and we haven’t played close to our best game,” – Urban Meyer— Eleven Warriors (@11W) October 1, 2018“There is a tremendous ceiling on this team and we haven’t gotten close to it.”— Eleven Warriors (@11W) October 1, 2018Ohio State travels to Indiana and Minnesota the next two weeks. Both of those teams will be pesky, but the Buckeyes’ talent should win out even if they put forth less than their best effort. They also will play Purdue, Nebraska and Maryland, all games which they’ll be heavily favored in.On paper, there are two major regular season tests remaining: home against Michigan State on Nov. 10 and at Michigan on Nov. 24.Pass both of those, and the Buckeyes will be sitting pretty.last_img
