Clemson has the most complete team in college football.

Statistically speaking, anyway.

The Tigers are the only team in the game that ranks among the top 1

1 in the United States in terms of total offense, scoring offense, total defense and scoring defense. Clemson’s offense entered the virtual podium early on Tuesday, and Ohio State University responded to the media by sending its defense coordinator Kerry Coombs and its sixty defensive figures.

The following is a summary of what Coombs, Jonathon Cooper, Haskell Garrett, Justin Hilliard, Tommy Togiai, Shaun Wade and Pete Werner said:

Carey Combs

  • Combs believes that there are many similarities between the Ohio State and Clemson receivers. He hopes that the Buckeyes’ defense will have the opportunity to practice with geniuses in their own takeover room, which will help. For his own defense.

  • Combs said that Trevor Lawrence (Trevor Lawrence) is “astonishingly fast” and is “one of the best college quarterbacks ever.” Avoid pressure, avoid his early recognition, and improvise when changing the ball.

  • Ohio State University and Clemson University recruited each other for the same player: “I think they are excellent recruiters, and they do a great job when they bring their kids to campus. I think it’s an uphill battle. I Think we’re doing a good job in identifying the same children across the country.”

  • Coombs compared Tommy Togiai with Robert Landers in terms of improvement. He said that Tojai was “strong like a cow” and “relentless”.

  • Combs said that he has never seen something like the one he has seen with Haskell Garrett this year in his coaching career, who was shot in August and is now a national defensive player. “I’m very happy. I hope I never see it again.”

  • He believed that Garrett “has a new life”, and after the gunshot wound, his interaction with Garrett was full of light and optimism.

  • Regarding Clemson’s explosive offense: “I don’t think anyone can stop them. You want to try to slow them down…. If you participate in a game and say we will take this away, they There are other ways to defeat you.”

  • He said that Jonathan Cooper has “put all his chips into this game” and “we will see Cooper’s best efforts in this game.”

  • Combs said that this game was “significant” for Sean Wade, and there is no doubt that being ejected in the first half of the Carnival Bowl last season was “really difficult for him.”

Sean Wade

  • Wade respects Clemson’s catcher both outside and in the slot. He said the Tigers have a talented group of organizers, and the Buckeyes’ secondary needs focus.

  • On the first-tier team where he won the national championship: “I feel like I can always do better in the end…. I am not focused on this, I just want to win the national championship.”

  • Wade was expelled from the Carnival Bowl matchup with Clemson last year, but he said there was no pressure to perform well this time: “After all, this is a team sport, not my sport. “This is a new team, a new day, a new us. I just hope to have the opportunity to participate in the competition. ”

  • Wade believes that his targeted penalty kick really changed the motivation of the game and helped Clemson gain an advantage.

  • Regarding whether Ohio State University-Clemson is in a competitive state: “My characteristic is that we have never defeated Clemson. Therefore we must defeat them…. In the past history, we have never defeated They, so this is our goal and we will go from there.”

  • Wade believes that everyone in the team this year helped Clemson’s defeat last season, and after the defeat, everyone in the team was still vague.

  • He said that Sevyn Banks is the player to watch on Friday: “Just watch, he will definitely play…. His attention is focused on the laser.”

Jonathan Cooper

  • This is the third time Cooper has faced Clemson in his career at Ohio State University: “I didn’t see much of the field during my freshman year. I was not there to see the field last year. I worked hard in the team to maintain Health is the most important thing.”

  • Cooper said that although he did not follow his plan for the COVID-19 pandemic this year, he does not regret another season.

  • Cooper did not believe that Ryan Day treated this game differently from any other: “With Coach Day, he played every game with the same intensity and the same way of thinking.”

  • On Pete Werner’s job change: “I think the biggest thing he strengthens is leadership…. He is a person to rely on.”

  • Cooper said the players would have liked to go to New Orleans to enjoy the city and the food there-for him, personally is seafood-but he finally said: “We are going there to win a football game. All business.”

  • Cooper: “Our key word is fighting, and for everything we have faced this year, we are continuing to fight…. With Coach Day as our leader, he did a great job.”

  • Cooper smiled and said that he “may not” return to Ohio State University.

Haskell Garrett

  • In his second team National Grand Prix: “I’m really honored. It’s not just that I am there. This is a group of people. Not only my honor, but also their honor…. My success is our success. .”

  • Garrett was impressed with Travis Etienne’s vision, speed, downhill ability and hole-punching tendency: “We are facing a huge challenge.”

  • Garrett is very happy that there is not much accumulation in the playoffs this season, and in most seasons, this gap of several weeks is gone.

  • Garrett did not participate in Ohio State University’s virtual senior day event. He said he has not yet decided whether he will come to another season or enter the 2021 NFL Draft: “I’m still debating, this is my point of view. . I will go there with myself and my family after the season.”

  • Regarding the importance of putting pressure on Trevor Lawrence, but also guarding against his running ability: “This will be a huge challenge. He is an energetic quarterback. Usually those who are tall and long. Not many runs…but we know that the game is changing a lot and many of these quarterbacks are double threats….we need to realize that he can prolong the game, and if the game breaks and coverage is good, he will Try to finish the game with your legs.”

  • Garrett doesn’t think that Clemson’s offensive or defensive performance is not much different from any team that Ohio State has encountered in the “Top Ten”, but the Tigers are disciplined and insist on consistently. Own task.

Tommy Togiai

  • Tojai believes that Clemson’s offensive line is well coordinated and can fill the gap for Etienne and the Bengals guards.

  • Tojai said that in the early stages of the quarantine, he was committed to becoming faster and faster, and he believes this has been shown on the scene.

  • Togiai graduated from Highland High School in Pocatello, Idaho, which is the school where New Orleans quarterback/utility player Taysom Hill is located: “I only talked to Taysom a few times, but he is a great guy. He is One of the people you admire because he is one of those who marched from Idaho.”

  • Tojai said that Trevor Lawrence was “faster than he looked,” and the Buckeyes need to be aware of their sprint route and maintain discipline.

  • Togiai said it was “incredible” to see Haskell Garrett overcome this dilemma in his career.

Pete Warner

  • He said that the biggest challenge in defending Etienne is that he is dangerous both in passing and passing.

  • Although Ohio State University has only played two games since the fight with Indiana University, Werner believes that the Buckeyes defense has solved some of the problems shown in this game: “I can’t wait to show the nation. Everyone showed us that we recovered from the problems in the movie.”

  • He said that giving up big games was one of the biggest reasons Ohio State lost to Clemson last season. He attributed Lawrence’s outstanding performance to him and said that Buckeyes’ defense needs to be disciplined in guarding him.

  • Werner said that it was a great journey from being a special team player to becoming a defensive leader and one of the team leaders.

  • Under the leadership of Ryan Day: “He has always been fighting for the players. We talk about the many obstacles that hinder us. He is a guy who will always serve you. He keeps asking the players what he can do for them. What do we do and what do we do? His needs….He is a guy you will always want to lead with him.”

Justin Hilliard

  • Clemson’s starting offensive winger was the starting offensive winger of Clemson in a confrontation with former Saint-Kevier (Cincinnati) high school teammate Matt Bockhorst: “I think that is the third former teammate I have played against this year. . I and Matt walked back…. He is one of the most natural and craziest teammates I have ever seen. He likes to socialize. He is my type.”

  • About defensive coordinator Kerry Coombs (Kerry Coombs): “Coach Coombs is one of the most influential coaches I have ever seen. He always says that the team runs the fastest and achieves the biggest wins. ”

  • Hilliard believes that in the past few games, he has a better pace in defending. He said that many times when you are playing a game, you only need to play the first song and make it start. He compares it to the old entrance of “Late Night” and David Lettermen’s Chris Farley.

  • Hilliard: “Once you play the first big show, you enter the trend, everything is easy.”

  • On Pete Werner: “Pete is a beast. If you turn on the tape, he will always run to the ball. He is an important part of our defense and I am very happy to see him Everything the five did.”
