Illini's Beckman has ties to Ohio State's Urban Meyer

Meyer said there's no problem coaching against a friend.

"Not difficult at all," he said. "I love Tim. Tim was on our staff. He's a great coach, great person. I like his dad even more than I like him. I call him the real coach Beckman, but it's good to go."
