  • Then I had some of this food this weekend watching the NFL games way Roosters of football, but to start us off.

  • Huge news just broke by letter.

  • Monroe carry Combs, new co defense coordinator, secondary coach for the Buckeyes.

  • That's a huge get right.

  • Absolutely.

  • I mean, you know, to have Coach calm.

  • She was already was a strong part of program before he obviously took the legal codes were able to come back and to now solidify our secondary coach.

  • Our situation.

  • That's using recruiting for all the young guys who have been waiting in the wings, looking for the opportunity to see who they're gonna have a chance to play for. 00:00:50.810 --> 00:01:3.440 And he's a great recruiters bringing back the Jews and the, you know, So you already know that now, with those two years of experience in the NFL, I think it makes a lot of sense when he comes back. 00:01:3.440 --> 00:01:6.730 He's more season had a different aspect of different point of view. 00:01:6.740 --> 00:01:10.730 He comes back rejuvenated you know, it's, Ah, a species in college.

  • You know, I was gonna ask you with your brother getting recruited, right?

  • And you know that this is a guy who who's got Bradley Roby, Eli Apple, more shot Lattimore, Gary on Conley.

  • He's got all those guys under his boat at Ohio State that now we're first round draft picks.

  • How's that change from recruits?

  • Perspective?

  • Because, you know, I listen, I wasn't a d B, but when you have a coach, you know when you have coach fickle coming in from my perspective, he's got Yo Hawk, Bobby.

  • He's got all those guys are okay.

  • It's It's big, right?

  • So how does that change from a recruit standpoint?

  • I think it just opens your eyes to really see you know, the development in him so that he can connect.

  • And what's really great about Kerry is he loved to connect to the players, and he feels that report so is I think, you know, Coach half came in NFL experience as well. 00:01:59.860 --> 00:02:9.590 Well, they will connect to guys like Damon aren't really lift his game back up because we all thought that Hey, he was a four, a five star recruit. 00:02:9.600 --> 00:02:10.900 He didn't live up to his potential.

  • When all of a sudden it's senior year, he comes out and has an excellent year in the secondary, and it takes ah, the acid anxiety away as a recruit.

  • Yeah.

  • You know, in that same note, Mike having a coach, you Yeah, he's great.

  • Recruiter.

  • Everybody knew about it before he before he went to the NFL.

  • Now, on the same side as recruiting goes as a high school kid.

  • Does it carry more stock?

  • Hey, this guy was in the NFL.

  • She was successful.

  • And, you know, we've been waiting for a couple of weeks because they've been going through that playoff run.

  • You know, everybody thought Kerry, you know, there was gonna be the guy we weren't sure.

  • You know that Does that.

  • Does that play into, you know, going through recruiter as a secondary guy?

  • You know, you knew that he put guys in the league, but being in the league and seeing what it's like, Do you think recruits gonna say you know what? 00:02:54.790 --> 00:03:4.640 He's gonna be able to help me even Maur get to that point or, you know, just kind of got no big deal wasn't it definitely a stamp of approval because he coached at the highest level, right? 00:03:4.640 --> 00:03:5.750 So he left on his own terms. 00:03:5.760 --> 00:03:6.260 Exactly. 00:03:6.270 --> 00:03:7.490 So he coached at the highest level. 00:03:7.490 --> 00:03:8.390 He wasn't fired. 00:03:8.650 --> 00:03:16.700 And he want to come back to highways from his roots, are here and allows him toe have that voice of confidence and reasoning.

  • Any kid was thinking about coming to our house state, the Ohio State that he could go say, Hey, I have a relation with this GM coach.

  • We're seeing this scene.

  • Yeah, No, I know the whole draft process.

  • I know how you're evaluated.

  • I know when it comes to the combine with really looking at the combine all that stuff because when he came from, you know, high school to a house a really Well, he's a sensitive guy.

  • People living down there, Can he recruit?

  • And now it's like I will.

  • He did well.

  • And then I went to the well, like I think it would be crazy.

  • I played ah, four.

  • Coach Combs love him to death.

  • The only thing that I question right is that we all know what those coaches go through for a minute from an NFL perspective, right?

  • It's completely different than college.

  • My thing is, he left has been gone for two years. 00:03:57.940 --> 00:04:0.850 How long's it take him to adjust to get back to the college way? 00:04:0.860 --> 00:04:3.760 Right where the off season you're including right? 00:04:3.760 --> 00:04:10.070 You're not sitting in a room going over draft board's going to the combine, going to rodeo dirt on the road at all times, right?

  • You have spring ball, right?

  • It's just completely different dynamic.

  • And so, from my perspective, it's How fast can he just from the NFL life the last two years to now jumping in under a new head coach, right?

  • It's gonna be, Ah, new things that Ryan days implemented you no different from what Urban had.

  • So no now, so what?

  • You know, especially now he's he's a defense coordinator is not just a second.

  • I said that a few weeks ago, talking about would he want to come back?

  • You know you got the NFL lifestyle.

  • Do I want to go recruit these kids again?

  • I want to go be on the road now He's a coach, you know, that's what he loves, and he loves to be around these college aged kids and so he wanted to come back.

  • I think that's huge to say Hey, listen, I want to be on the road.

  • I want to be recruiting.

  • I want I want this extra stuff, not just sitting draft board meeting and things like that. 00:04:56.890 --> 00:05:4.310 So I think it's huge and I would say with his personality knowing him over the last several years, and I think he likes to be engaged with true development of the athlete. 00:05:4.540 --> 00:05:5.990 Yeah, but this time he recruits. 00:05:5.990 --> 00:05:8.390 The kid comes in at 18 years old time. 00:05:8.390 --> 00:05:9.880 They leave their 22 years old.

  • You know, if they don't leave early whatnot, but he likes that development, really had long time high school coach.

  • You like seeing those?

  • I agree with that.

  • I think when you get off to the NFL, it's a lot more maintaining right.

  • You're going over to the right.

  • I feel like I agree.

  • I think he likes the idea of helping develop kids, knowing that if I get him in college, I can make a bigger difference from their freshman to senior year, right to make a bigger impact on him compared to what guys get to the NFL, right?

  • You're top of your game.

  • There isn't much you're taking him from here to here, right?

  • It's a lot more just giving him tips.

  • Different personality, over attitude.

  • I got money.

  • I'm not listening to you.

  • He's back here and help you grow to be a better man, you know, down the road.

  • So you don't have to go through some of the bad stuff.

  • Maybe once you get to the league.

  • But there's a huge get for the Buckeyes, and, you know, they finally fill that position. 00:05:58.490 --> 00:06:0.740 It's gonna be, you know, known and done. 00:06:0.740 --> 00:06:5.140 And, uh, any recruits minds that he is no knowing that it's a massive get. 00:06:5.140 --> 00:06:5.910 And I agree with you. 00:06:5.910 --> 00:06:10.320 I think it from recruiting standpoint to I think Jeff Half Li was great.

  • But you know, from a No.

  • One what Carrie Combs has done at Ohio State for him to come back, it's just astronomical for what it can do from an upside from recruiting the secondary moving forward.

  • And the biggest thing is as we all you want, approving eye right in the sense No coach happily came from 40 Niners.

  • He has an NFL experience, but Buckeye Nation really didn't have any idea who this guy was?

  • So the brain back coach carry Combs into this role?

  • Well, we know he's a proven guy.

  • He has had a great tenure here, and then he goes up to the next level, Has a great run, you know, just ended up yesterday.

  • No losing in S C Champs Gang.

  • Here's a question for you.

  • I don't know.

  • Was he here with Ryan?

  • They last year when Ryan first came here? 00:06:53.170 --> 00:07:0.530 Because, you know, that's the thing was like a head coach, you know, he knew about him, but that helped them. 00:07:0.530 --> 00:07:2.950 Your relationship was here for one year. 00:07:3.240 --> 00:07:4.020 That could be different. 00:07:4.030 --> 00:07:9.660 You know, I got a young guy who's a coach for the first time, bringing you back, you know, just seeing what that he was here for one year.

  • So speaking of, ah, recruiting, coaching, things like that.

  • Nick Bosa, Larry Johnson, right?

  • I know everyone talks about.

  • We've talked to talked about it multiple times what Larry Johnson brings to Ohio State what he brings toe developing these guys from when they get here toe when they leave.

  • I don't know if any coaching college can say that they've put out guys like Larry Johnson with boast of brothers with Chase Young coming out.

  • I mean, it's unbelievable.

  • What way?

  • He may be the best time for the Bangles.

  • S o. 00:07:48.270 --> 00:08:1.930 You know, Let's touch on that and especially Nick boast of the way he played last night, having a big sack Aaron Rodgers and then I don't know if you guys told us, but he's on the sideline showing some of the older guys technique stuff during the game that's coming from Larry Johnson. 00:08:1.930 --> 00:08:14.990 So you as a recruit as a high school guy, if I'm watching a game and obviously any football fans watching that game right, you're seeing Nick Bosa go over things with guys who have been in the league for a long for a long period of time, teaching them things that Larry Johnson taught him.

  • So you know, to talk a little bit about what Larry Johnson brings that to a recruiting aspect that you're seeing Nick but Nick boast to bring to a field on Sundays.

  • Well, I mean, the thing for me is to see that you know the hands on and truly grabbing everyone's attention it like Okay, this young guy He's a rookie.

  • No, actually know what brother was here before?

  • Said San Diego made an impact, but now he comes in there making a run here in the playoffs with the Super Bowl and he's in the game like, Listen, guys, if you do this, move on this on this guy or you see that drop step one on that left tackle Hey, come with this little hook and slap. 00:08:50.740 --> 00:09:0.560 And actually, you know you're gonna have a chance to make a play, and I just It just takes the true development in the passion that Coach Johnson has to teach his guys. 00:09:0.650 --> 00:09:3.900 It shows that even from what I understand, he watches all this in a pill. 00:09:3.900 --> 00:09:6.650 Guys take Wednesday when he has some free time. 00:09:6.650 --> 00:09:8.170 Just if they give him a call. 00:09:8.180 --> 00:09:13.090 Because what you see on tape you got guys texted him throughout the week, maybe do something.

  • Just remember this.

  • Remember when we did this back?

  • The foundation, but your fundamentals.

  • And to see most of, you know, I actually have a great Ricky a probably Rick Defense.

  • Ricky year.

  • Yeah, you should be aware that war hands down have that impact.

  • His team's super Bowl.

  • And as we saw from the AOC tempted game with the Titans, they could not get any pressure on the quarterback.

  • It's gonna be different.

  • It's truly elusive.

  • You can see that they were trying to search, looking for some blitzes, know some change, some things up.

  • But Braves.

  • They did not have a guy get hard.

  • There's too much time.

  • He was sitting back there multiple times, 8 to 10 seconds, just trying to find something around, wringing it out.

  • String out, CEO.

  • You scored the touchdown.

  • I'm near just kind of know scrambling. 00:09:59.420 --> 00:10:4.320 And I think where a coach Johnson's true perspective comes in is in crunch time. 00:10:4.320 --> 00:10:7.670 Moments where these guys elevate the level of play is different. 00:10:7.810 --> 00:10:13.810 You know, you go against the acronym against the Miami Ohio, the ball and greens, and you have a 23 set game.

  • But if you're getting that done against Penn State, getting big dog, clearly you're not done in a costume.

  • While playoffs that carries over to Sunday's eso, here's something for us to discuss real quick.

  • There's so many people at that letter, Monroe that are watching this and saying, Hey, the boast of brothers were five stars.

  • Chase Young was a fire start, right?

  • You got all these guys.

  • They're five star players.

  • How much is a coach, Really?

  • How much saves?

  • You really haven't escaped.

  • How much road is a coach really contributing to this guy?

  • When he's that.

  • What is that college right there like a These guys were really talented.

  • Everybody wanted exactly the kind of like the great horse, right?

  • Just put up.

  • Just get him in the race, right?

  • Get him in the starting.

  • Exactly.

  • Only let's go.

  • Right.

  • So, you know, let's discuss how much control How much is it?

  • Larry Johnson.

  • How much of this isn't Larry Johnson rather than just a poster brothers and chase being where they are, I think when when Larry got the job, I mean, it was all you heard was how awesome he was backed up in, you know, like maybe this is a huge gets, you know?

  • And then you look at the guys who had a Penn State.

  • Well, is it the same type of thing right now?

  • Those guys were kind of freaks.

  • You know, Harrington for you know, I mean, he had some players there, too, but to see what he's able to be.

  • I mean, I think Hubbard is probably a good everyone across guy, you know, coming out of high school.

  • I think the weight room Nick young him big and then add that to Larry being able to show him and kind of get working with him, getting into the little reason where he's a draft pick.

  • I mean, that kind of shows you how good this coaches and and you hear him talk about him.

  • I mean, Bo says they could be off their Outen.

  • Callie will be off in your own world.

  • They could care less about Larry Johnson, but they don't mean they want to stay in touch.

  • They want to still talk to him.
