Ohio State coach Urban Meyer dropped to his knee during the second half of the Buckeyes win over Indiana on Saturday, saying it was a flareup of a headache that took him to the ground.

The 54-year-old Meyer was attended to by team trainer Doug Calland and team doctor Chris Kaeding before standing and walking down the sideline. He kept his headset off and remained detached from the game for a few minutes, his left hand against the left side of his head. He then put his headset back on and assumed his familiar pose, bent at the waist, with his hands on his knees.

"I dealt with headaches in the past," Meyer said after the 49-26 win, clearly attempting to sidestep questions about it. He did refute a report during the game that said a collision with a staffer is what sent Meyer to the ground.

Those who know Meyer's history were aware of the possibility of a headache as the culprit. Meyer has been diagnosed with an arachnoid cyst, which is a fluid-filled sac that can put pressure on the brain and in some cases cause headaches.
