To avoid complacency, Meyer says he'll push buttons to get 'angry' Buckeyes squad in 2013

Ohio State's season is prematurely over, thanks to NCAA sanctions.

But the lack of a bowl game could serve coach Urban Meyer's purposes next year.

Meyer says he will do anything to fight complacency after the Buckeyes went 12-0 this season. To do that, he may just summon up the issue of the bowl ban the school accepted for violations that occurred under deposed coach Jim Tressel.

Meyer said he needs an "angry" team next season.

He has already met with his staff about how to light a fire under those who return from a surprising team that won its Big Ten division while posting only the sixth perfect season in school history. The Buckeyes lose at least six starters on defense and three on offense, plus the punter.
