The Ohio State football team ran the Maryland Terrapins off the field in the ‘Shoe on Saturday. It’s true that the Terps have some key injuries, most notably in the secondary and at wide receiver, but we’re sure head coach Mike Locksley expected the next men up to put up a better fight than what he saw.
Still, Locksley took his medicine and met with the media after the game to field questions and to discuss what he saw from the game. As always, we like to follow what the opposing coach says about the Buckeyes after the game, so we have the video and audio of the Maryland head man after the 66-17 beatdown.
And, unlike most opposing coaches, Locksley had none of a desire to compliment Ohio State. He blamed the loss on his own team and at one point even made a backhanded compliment to C.J. Stroud’s performance (passed for over 400 yards) by saying that he simply hit wide-open receivers. Early on in the presser, Locksley also said that “We had guys looking like they fell out of airplanes, they were so wide open.”
Welp. OK. In case you’d like to catch the rest of the press conference, feel free to click on the below and watch the brief press conference in its entirety thanks to the Terrapin Sports Report’s YouTube Channel.
Ohio State now enters its bye-week before it gets back at it against Indiana on the road in a couple of weeks.
