Video from Urban Meyer's Buckeye Football Spring Kickoff, held Wednesday at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

Meyer, his staff and players (and a few former greats) came out to tell stories, share a few laughs and raise money for Alzheimer's disease and cancer research.

The highlight of the event was Braxton Miller's new mohawk, but that wasn't the only interesting tidbit:

  • Meyer shared his thoughts that he had the Buckeyes as a three- or four-loss team heading into last season and that he and Mickey Marotti panicked after the Cal game because the team was in disarray.
  • KERRY F. COOMBS! Seriously. TURTLENECK TUESDAY.
  • Coombs said Tyvis Powell thought his first name was "Damnit," because Coombs always yelled "Damnit, Tyvis!"
  • Everett Withers said Ohio State dropped 28 interceptions last season.
  • Mike Vrabel clowned on Michael Bennett (and the crowd loved it).
  • Braxton Miller on getting popped by Noah Spence in practice: "I wear a  black jersey for a reason. I wasn't expecting to get hit like that."
  • Ed Warinner drew laughs for saying he told Jack Mewhort to stay away from the Memorial Tournament this season.
  • Much more...

Man oh man....Coombs. Whoever types up the transcript for the banquet will need to hit caps lock before typing his part. So awesome.

I just knocked a guy down in the hallway outside my office in a full-on open field tackle. I represent THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY, COACH COOMBS!!!

The only thing that's new in the world is the history that we have forgotten.

Thanks for the footage. Had to turn the volume down when "Red Bull" Coombs was up.

Back in the 1980s the Soviets were developing technology to get electrical power from people much like in the movie The Matrix. It just so happened they kidnapped one mister Coach Coombs. When they plugged him into the machine and turned it on a little event happened you might have heard of. It was known as Chernobyl.
