The Football Fever: Meyer cancels news conference to assist player and ill family member


COLUMBUS -- Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer cancelled his Monday media conference to accompany a player out of town to be with an ill family member.

Meyer was expected back in Columbus late in the day.

Meyer talked about the connection between staff and player families at a recent news conference.

"That's one thing I think is really cool about our program and really cool about the relationship we have with our families," said Meyer. "We're on speed dial. We're not one of those where they have to set an appointment to meet with us. There's a constant conversation.

Meyer will fulfill his other media obligations this week, Tuesday on the Big 10 teleconference and Wednesday with a regular briefing at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.
