It’s no secret that schools like Ohio State, Alabama and Clemson have the best of the best when it comes to facilities. Other programs, especially those that don’t rake in money from football, are at a disadvantage.
The disparity was on display Saturday morning. Colin Hass-Hill of Eleven Warriors posted a photo of Ohio State’s players getting taped near the field – since Maryland’s visitors locker room doesn’t have a place for that.
A Buckeyes fan tagged former Ohio State star Joshua Perry, who responded with the words “hot garbage.” Apparently, that’s how he feels about Maryland’s locker room situation.
This is the kind of thing that matters in recruiting, to say the least.
Maryland does not have a room for players to get taped, so Ohio State has to do it outside the locker room just steps from the field. pic.twitter.com/WM4apVYo5c

Ohio State is taking on Maryland on Saturday with a lot on the line. The Buckeyes are 9-1 and need to win their final two games to win the Big Ten East.
Maryland has a lot on the line too. The Terrapins are 5-5 battling for bowl eligibility. They need to beat either Ohio State or Penn State.
The Buckeyes and the Terrapins kick off at Noon ET.
