Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady (who hasn’t officially retired just yet) had former LSU football quarterback Joe Burrow on his Let’s Go with Jim Gray on Mad Dog Sports Radio podcast on Monday.

Brady and Burrow discussed several great topics, but one of the best moments came when the legendary quarterback brought up Burrow’s decision to leave Ohio State after the 2017 season.

“I think one of the (greatest) decisions he ever made was leaving Ohio State,” said Brady (via 247Sports). “You got out of that godforsaken place and (went to) LSU.”

“As a Michigan man, I could tell how smart he was when he did that,” added Brady. “One of the best you ever made Joe.”

Brady played at Michigan from 1995 to 1999 (before many players currently in the NFL were even born).

Joe Burrow reacts to Tom Brady’s Ohio State quip

Burrow laughed at Brady’s joke, but he was careful not to agree with the future Hall of Famer.

“I think it was too, but maybe for different reasons than you might have,” said a laughing Burrow.

LSU means a lot to Burrow. It’s why he still wears an LSU bracelet often during NFL games. Baton Rouge is always going to be part of Burrow.

But Ohio State will always be part of Burrow, too.

The Cincinnati Bengals quarterback has deep roots in Ohio. And he spent three years of his career in Columbus before leaving for LSU. Burrow has spoken several times about the appreciation he has for former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer.

(And before anyone says Meyer made a mistake, let’s not forget that Dwayne Haskins, who the job over Burrow at Ohio State, was pretty dang good in 2018.)

There’s no doubt that Burrow is thankful for his time at Ohio State (though I’d say he’s more thankful for his time at LSU).

It’s fun to hear the banter between Brady and Burrow. Just two elite quarterbacks having fun.

It’s almost like a passing of the torch from Brady to Burrow.
