If Ohio State fans didn’t miss Tom Herman before, they might after hearing what he said on Monday.

The former OSU offensive coordinator and now Houston coach was asked about the kind of love his players have for each other. After all, they are still undefeated and up to No. 13 in the Associated Press poll. Life is good in Houston.

He responded with this gem:

It’s no wonder why Herman is considered one of the top candidates for all of the Power Five openings. He is just a season removed from earning the Broyles Award — given to the nation’s top assistant coach — for helping the Buckeyes right the ship and win a national title with third-string quarterback Cardale Jones.

If and when he ends up at South Carolina, the press conference entertainment value Steve Spurrier provided won’t take a hit.
