Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide have won three of the last four BCS titles, so it is no surprise that Meyer—a man with two titles to his name—is gunning to take Saban down.
Meyer's Buckeyes were the only NCAA FBS team to go undefeated in 2012, thanks to Alabama's dismantling of the previously unbeaten Notre Dame. But Meyer and Ohio State will not rest on their laurels.
Meyer is on a mission to win titles and not just of the Big Ten variety, but to take the crystal ball from the SEC and end that conference's seven-year run of winning the national championship—a streak that Meyer started with Florida against Ohio State.
The Buckeyes return several key players, especially on offense, and are bringing in one of the best recruiting classes in the country. But there is still work to be done to answer a few concerns the coaching staff might have.
The Buckeyes could put many of those questions to bed during the two weeks of spring practice leading up to Ohio State's Spring Game in Cincinnati on April 13.
