Podcast: ‘Hangout in the Holy Land’ previews the Maryland game

The Terrapins pose a bigger threat to the Buckeyes than we originally thought

Hangout in the Holy Land is back to give you their breakdown of all things Buckeyes. The hosts are new, the football season is new, but the sarcasm hasn’t changed a bit. Join George Eisner and myself all year long as we break down Ohio State’s opponents and recap the Buckeyes’ performance each weekend.

When Ohio State’s schedule originally dropped, pretty much everyone expected the Penn State game to be the Buckeyes’ biggest test, with a big lull in the schedule between the matchup against the Nittany Lions and the season finale against Michigan. That is no longer the case, as this weird COVID season has flipped the Big Ten on its head, and now Maryland is one of the toughest teams in the conference to figure out.

On one hand, they lost 43-3 to Northwestern in the season opener, but on the other, they’ve significantly improved in their last two games, defeating Penn State on the road their last time out. George and I discuss the enigma that is the Terrapins, talking about some of the strengths and weaknesses of this year’s team under second-year head coach Mike Locksley. We attempt to separate fact from the fiction in this two-game stretch for Maryland, as the program has had a tendency to pick up a big early win before a total collapse in the past.

We will be back on Sunday following the game. We hope you will tweet us @HolyLandPod with your postgame questions and hot takes, and we will try to read as many of them as possible on the show.

Looking forward to hearing feedback from you guys. As always, if you like what we’re doing, be sure to subscribe and drop a review on Apple Podcasts. We’ll see ya after the game!
