It really hard to find a few words to describe what happened today at Ohio State for the Terps… Still searching, okay found one, DISMANTLE.. the season, this game, all of it and move on.
There were a few people that perhaps the Terps to compete in the game.. just a little bit, that barely happened and they had some help from the Buckeyes in the form of penalties in the third quarter that resulted in the first touchdown of the day, or any offense for that matter.
Ohio State (9-0, 6-0) took over its third drive of the game at its own 43-yard line and scored, building its early lead and proving that last year’s meeting was a fluke en route to a 73-14 win over Maryland (3-7, 1-6).
The Terps found themselves in a 21-0 hole for the fourth time this season, but against the Buckeyes, it was the first time it had occurred in the first quarter. At that first break, Ohio State had 192 total yards, while the Terps managed to pick up a single yard.
By halftime, Maryland had dug 42-0 hole. No shovels were going to be able to get them out of this deep one.
Perhaps the strangest thing that the Terps saw happen to them outside of the performance on the field was that Terps recruit Jordan White took to Twitter and decommitted himself at halftime, stating it was a family decision to look elsewhere for him to play.
The Terps will get some rest, as if they need some, and resume Big Ten play against Nebraska on November 23rd at home. Until then, Coach Locksley can take a look at the this game and wonder what really happened to his team today.
Terps Total Offense 125 yards
Ohio State 705 yards
