Urban Meyer is back in the Shoe.

The legendary Buckeye coach returned to Ohio Stadium for the first time since his retirement as part of BTN Tailgate and Fox's Big Noon Kickoff pregame show.

Meyer has hung up his whistle and taken up a roll as an analyst, but make no mistake, he's still all Buckeye, even referring to Ohio State's student body as "my students."

The former Buckeye head coach will be staying in the stadium to watch game the game, but he'll be watching from the booth. Meyer told the Chicago Tribune that if he watched the game from the sideline, he would "want to dive in the middle of the field, call a play or something.”

“When I found out, I was so excited,” Meyer told the Tribune. “It will be an awesome experience because I love our students and love Ohio State. It will be somewhat awkward, but I love coach (Ryan) Day; the relationship is great. It’s a 10 out of 10 as far as the relationship.”
