    He seems very down-to-earth and approachable. Easy to see why kids gravitate to him and want to commit to play for him.

    I love everything I'm hearing about this guy and his track record producing AA/pro linemen is outstanding. Fantastic job by Corch replacing another guy with a pretty respectable track record of his own.

    Is Ohio State's Larry Johnson the best recruiter in the Big Ten? ESPN analyst Jeremy Crabtree thinks so: Buckeyes recruiting

    • Jayln Holmes playing pretty well. Still young, trying to learn the system. Expects his reps to increase as the season goes on.
    • Not sure on the status of Rashad Frazier yet. (ankle)
    • Noah Spence getting the help he needs. Trying to get healthy & going to class.
    • Says the transition with recruiting has been pretty easy since leaving Penn State. His style hasn't changed & Ohio State speaks for itself. Just selling something he really believes in.
    • Expects this weekend to be "different" for him, but he's looking forward to going back & going back with Ohio State.
    • Steve Miller really doing a great job. Plays hard every snap, smart & listens.
    • Knows it will be loud on Saturday night. "Best way to block the noise out is score points & play great defense".
    • Left Penn State on his terms. He thought it was time to move on after Coach Franklin came in. Found a great home & is very happy at Ohio State. Really looking forward to the future at Ohio State for many years.
    • Rotating about 6 or 7 guys right now, but also depends on the game. Tough to take good players off the field. Last week Joey Bosa played 51 snaps, compared to 67 before. Mike Bennett played 42 snaps. All that is going to help the guys down the road.
    • Asked to compare himself to Mike Vrabel. Larry calls himself a developer and wants to be close to the players. Tells players he doesn't want to coach them, he wants to invest in them. Wants to get that phone call when they're getting married or having their first child. When you invest in a kid & show them that, they'll do anything in the world for you.
    • Has never been in the opposing locker room at Penn State, but has heard it's very small (laughs).
    I know many had some questions when it was announced Larry was hired...but damn am I glad he's a Buckeye. The man gets it & is also one hell of a coach. No doubt he'll be fired up this weekend & I hope OSU makes a statement for him.

    Turns out maybe he and Urban were always good guys, just imperfect.

    I am happy that I got to listen to this guy. He impressed me when he was at Penn State.
    I think he made Penn State defense to be feared.
    Now I hope he can do the same at Ohio State.

    I liked the long hug with Bosa after he won the game. Very happy he is our coach.

    Coach Johnson deserves a bump! He was seen as a questionable hire initially, and now has turned the Dline into a big strength. I bet Franklin is kicking himself for letting him leave! Thanks LJsr for your work this season: Bosa, Miller, Bennett And Washington looked amazing. As did Frazier and countless others who rotated in. 2015 is lookin bright

    Questionable? Maybe I'm wrong but the knock on LJ was recruiting sneakiness not coaching.
