Ohio State star defensive end Chase Young is currently suspended for accepting a loan from what he calls a “family friend” in 2018. FOX Sports announcers Joel Klatt and Gus Johnson made it seem like they know a bit more about the situation than most on Saturday.
Late in the second quarter, with Ohio State leading Maryland 42-0, Klatt and Johnson noted that it seemed like the Buckeyes were pouring it on the Terrapins – by kicking an onside kick and calling timeouts to get the ball back just before the half.
They made it seem like there’s a reason that Ryan Day and the Buckeyes are running up the score on the Terrapins.
Johnson: They absolutely will get the ball back here. Ryan Day pouring it on a little bit here. It’s personal.
Klatt: Yeah, this is interesting partner, with what’s gone on this week.
Johnson: Remember, Chase Young is from that Washington D.C. area. He said he borrowed money from a family friend. Who would know about that?
Klatt: (Laughs) This seems interesting, 42-0, taking the timeouts.

Young, according to ESPN, is likely suspended four games by NCAA rule. But Ohio State is appealing, and it hopes to have it reduced to two games. Ohio State’s final two regular season games come against Penn State and Michigan.
