08:17 AM ET 10.24 | What if Ohio State wants to make a coaching change and Urban Meyer isn't the guy? There are no obvious choices out there, no former Ohio State coaches or players who seem ready to step up and take what figures to be a daunting job. Michigan State and Nebraska just increased the salaries of former OSU defensive coordinator Mark Dantonio and former OSU player Bo Pelini in what appeared to be pre-emptive strikes. But frankly, neither was (or is) a slam dunk to get the job. Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith might have a shot if he wants it; unlike a lot of pro coaches, he has college coaching in his background and was a good recruiter when he was an assistant at Ohio State.
