Ohio State Football Spring Practice Videos: The Legend of Kerry Coombs Grows

By 11W Staff on March 7, 2013 at 3:48p


Here's a belated video gallery from Ohio State's first spring practice, held at the WHAC Tuesday.

They're all great, but the :41 mark of the first video is the highlight.

I'm not sure how the camera man didn't laugh after he said that

We were born to love Ohio State and hate that team up north.

I can assure you I did, I just tried to keep it down. Anyone who heard it was in stitches, that's for sure.

Seriously, I could only imagine what would have happened if Coach caught someone laughing. PT until they wish they were dead.

That was awesome. That was absolutely amazing
Edit: in reference to Coombs yelling, haha

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

The old 'sneak a quick drink when I get down the end while no one is watching' trick.
Nice try, Basil.

This is why I love football.  In any other sport the coaches would get reprimanded for yelling at the players like that.  In football, it's celebrated.

I'm assuming you've never wrestled then?

Or boxed...
and the English coaches I had for soccer were way, way worse than you'd imagine. Although somehow the accents make everything funny.

I played baseball and soccer and we got screamed at. My sister played volleyball and they got screamed at. I'm pretty sure this is just sports.

Daughters played basketball and lacrosse-and they got screamed at.

We got screamed at in basketball all the time. Middle and high school.

You may wanna have a language warning for the videos especially the defensive drills one. Not a concern for me but I know it has been in the past for others.

Booo. Now there is only 1 video up. But I must admit I did have to laugh it. That was great.

there is a drop down menu on the bottom right hand corner of the video. I only say this because I think you may have done the same thing I did and assume there was only one video. I spent five minutes trying to look for the rest until I found the drop down, haha

Coach Coombs is just awesome; plain simple!

I suggest a dedicated camera to follow Kerry Frickin Coombs around practice, I don't want to miss a second of watching him! You could maybe get KFC to sponsor it.....The Coach KFC Cam! Everytime he lets a funny insult fly, free chicken fingers all around!

Anyone else having issues with YouTube? This video just stops at a certain point...
Other videos are doing this same thing. Everything else on the page works. Just the video freezes.

And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.

I keep Coombing the roster for someone named 'Sunshine'

Coombs is a badass! Reminds me of my drill Sergeant from boot camp.

I love his comments in the "Stretching" video as well... "What are you chasing today?!" Walking up and down the line screaming at players... during stretches! That man is so intense, I would love to play for him.

Almost got coffee all over my screen, that was awesome.
Thank you, Coach Coombs, for bringing a little sunshine into my life each day.

I kept waiting and waiting, then started to look at how much time was left and then I heard it and thought that was probably the best we'll hear all year. But it is still early.

Can you imagine being Kerry Comb's son? You would probably be deaf by the age of three.

Have a friend on the team who said he overheard coombs say to a player b4 a practice last year........the kid was like kissing his girlfriend outside on b4 going in to get taped up and get ready for practice and coombs reeled off "get your di&k outta her hand and get ur butt to practice" lol

Buckeyejason's picture

Coach Coombs should have his own broadway show, call it "COMEON SUNSHINE!!"

You guys have made the big time.  I'm not sure what the angle of this article is.  The title makes it sound extremely negative, but the contents make it seem like a "Ah yeah, football is back."
If someone is trying to make this an issue, give me a break.

Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!

Hail, I refuse go on UM blogs.  Does this same type of conversation go on over there?

DJRoss926's picture

There needs to be a camera following Coombs everywhere, all the time. For all our sakes.

Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory lasts forever!
