COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer was asked about the perfect record his former employer is posting.

Florida, where the Buckeyes head coach was in charge 2005-10, is 5-0 and ranked fourth.

Meyer wishes nothing but the best to his old school.

Meyer had been blasted by some for allegedly leaving the cupboard bare for his successor with the Gators, Will Muschamp.

“I don't want to get into all that cupboard is bare (stuff), because that's one man's opinion, and we've got to move on,” Meyer said. “I'm very proud of those guys. Love those guys.”

Of the Gators' 14-6 win over No. 4 LSU in The Swamp, Meyer added, “Always be a Gator. I keep in touch with some of those players. Great win. Great, tough win against a tough opponent, absolutely.”
