Syracuse men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim expressed a lot of praise for Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer after his team's win over OSU basketball on Wednesday night. He said he expected Ohio State to continue their winning ways last Saturday against Michigan, because Urban Meyer is THAT good of a coach.

While Meyer may look like a madman on the sidelines during the game, there's no arguing with the results he gets. Boeheim, a great coach himself, is smart enough to recognize talent in coaching, even if it is another sport. He simply laughed at those who thought Meyer wouldn't win "The Game" against Michigan.
Jim Boeheim said he picked Ohio State to beat Michigan by 20 points on Saturday: “How could you possibly doubt Urban Meyer? You think he’s going to lose that game here? Honestly?”— Colin Hass-Hill (@chasshill) November 29, 2018
Boeheim was right on the money, though he did underestimate OSU a bit. Ohio State ended up winning by 23 points instead of 20.
