    DEFENSE MOTIVATED BY MARYLAND’S 51 POINTS
    Nobody expects Ohio State will play a semblance of a close game on Saturday. But, to be fair, nobody thought Maryland would come one completed pass away from upsetting the Buckeyes a year ago.

    With the way Ohio State has played through its first eight games, it’s far less believable that Maryland will be able to keep it tight than it was last year. But what happened in the Buckeyes’ 52-51 overtime win a year ago remains in the minds of their players.

    “We didn't watch any of last year's film because we feel like they're a different team, but also we feel like we're a different team as well,” Jordan Fuller said on Wednesday. “We just remember last year.”

    That means they remember Maryland’s 51 points, they remember Anthony McFarland Jr.’s 298 yards and three touchdowns and they remember the Terrapins’ 535 yards.

    “It drives us a lot,” Cornell said. “Maryland's a great program, it's a great team. We've got to go out there and give them their best game because last year they gave us their best game.”

    For most players on the defense, it would be difficult to forget.

    Ohio State returned nine starters on that side of the ball, including both defensive ends, a defensive tackle, all three linebackers, two cornerbacks and its safety. Jordan Fuller, who had four tackles versus the Terrapins a year ago, called the one-point win “probably one of the most stressful games” for the defense in a season filled with games that could be defined with the word “stressful.”

    With a rejuvenated defense that ranks No. 1 in the country in multiple major statistical categories, Ohio State will enter Saturday expected to keep Maryland largely in check, and the players are certainly not lacking motivation to make that happen after what happened a season ago.

    “I think they know how dangerous the running game is,” Day said. “It was only a year ago they played against them. Ran for 300 yards. They know that. I don't think they're proud of that. They want to do a better job this time around, for sure.”

    Ohio State should still be able to beat Maryland pretty handedly without Chase Young

    I'm going to guess the team atleast knew about this around Tuesday. I think Day will have this team ready and willing to show that this team is not built around one player...

    Losing Chase will hurt, but let's be honest, It could be alot worse. It could have been Fields.
