Ohio State tried really hard this week not to give me much to gripe about. For much of the game I didn’t have a whole lot of complaints. But I’m nothing if not persistent, so I stuck with it and found plenty of things to be angry about despite the ultimate 73-14 win over the Maryland Terrapins. Let’s get to what made me want to spray passersby with the hose.
COLUMBUS — Ohio State came into the Maryland game knowing that they would be down not one, but two of their starting defensive ends. Senior defensive end Jonathon Cooper has missed the majority of the games this season due to injury, and with junior defensive end Chase Young’s future up in the air, the Ohio State Rushmen had to figure out a way to make up…
Technically, Chase Young hasn’t been suspended yet. But if he is forced to miss more than a game or two, it could have a major impact on this year’s Buckeye team.
Ohio State just announced that star junior defensive end Chase Young will miss the Maryland game due to an investigation into possible NCAA rule violations.
Let me just say that Mountain Time is pretty excellent for old timers like myself when it comes to night football games. They wrap up right around my senior citizen bedtime and that makes me happy. On the other hand, when you’re meeting a good friend in Colorado and have a few local beverages the night before, a noon game (now all of the sudden a 10 am kickoff) makes for a rough showing.
The Ohio State coaches took a day off following the Buckeyes’ 38-7 win over Wisconsin, so their film grading sessions were a day later than normal this year. To no one’s surprise, however, junior running back JK Dobbins and junior defensive end Chase Young were named the Offense and Defense Players of the Game, respectively.
In this episode of the Buckeye SloopCast, Jared and Kyle recap yet another Buckeye blowout. This time they relive Ohio State’s 38-7 win over the Wisconsin Badgers. They spend quite a bit of time talking about JK Dobbins and Chase Young, as you might expect. The fellas discuss Ohio State’s defense as a whole and verbally gaze in wonderment at the things they are seeing.
