CRIS CARTER: You've only lost seven games as the head coach. You lost one last year at Penn State. But I was really surprised in your prep this week, that you said that there was a revenge factor, particularly going against Penn State this year because of what happened last year. Now, you-- you're not a coach that teaches revenge. So what led you to it being some type of revenge from last season's loss to Penn State?

URBAN MEYER: Well, I think there's always that, you know, we're-- are we going to use that, and that's going to be the mantra? No, it's not. I mean, that's all-- that's a foundation built on sand. You know that. That's after the foot hits the ball. Revenge is over. You've got to go play the game.

Yet, you're talking about 17, 18, 19-year-old players. You're talking about a 53-year-old coach that was in that stadium last year. We lost the game. Do we want to beat this team in the worst way? But, like you said, you know, that's not our style to come up with catch phrases or things like that. It's all about execution of playing.

But we're all in this thing together. And we all took a shot right in the jaw last year. And we're going to do our best to not let that happen this year.
