Ohio State's Urban Meyer speaks at a wrestling coaches' clinic

This past October, Urban Meyer took time out of the grind of being a head coach at a major college football power to speak at a coaching convention for wrestling coaches that took place on Ohio State's campus. Meyer's certainly no stranger to a wrestler's mentality as he once told the Columbus Dispatch:

"You (can't) put more pressure on me than I put on myself," he said. "We could give up 14 points and I'm not going to sleep at night thinking about what we could have done better. I've always been a competitor. I've grown up from the time I was 4 or 5 years old as a wrestler, and that's (mano a mano), a guy who's basically in a one-on-one fight and you put as much pressure on yourself as you can. So the outside pressures, I don't know. I don't feel it. There's no more pressure than I can put upon myself."

Amongst the highlights are Meyer telling a joke from ex-Buckeye basketball player Bobby Knight (with an anecdote you'd totally expect from The General) along with the sort of typically powerful motivational speaking we've come to expect from Meyer and his staff. It isn't hard at all to see why Meyer has such a way motivating his players to achieve their best.
