ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit made waves on Saturday morning when he addressed the Chase Young situation on Twitter.

After the No. 1 Buckeyes’ 73-14 shellacking of Maryland at Ohio Stadium on Saturday, Ohio State’s Association Athletic Director for Football Communications, Jerry Emig, and head coach Ryan Day responded to Herbstreit’s insinuation of a looming four-game suspension.

Dan Hope, senior reporter for Eleven Warriors, shared Emig’s comments:

Day wasn’t nearly as revealing as Emig, but here is all he had to say on Young, courtesy of Eleven Warriors’ Colin Hass-Hill:

While Young’s absence is obviously felt, the Buckeyes did not miss a beat vs. the Terrapins. Outgaining Maryland, 705-139, Ohio State played three different quarterbacks and had 10 players record a reception in the rout.

Looking to improve to 10-0, Ohio State travels to Piscataway to battle Rutgers (2-7, 0-6 B1G) on November 16.

Idle until November 23, Maryland next hosts the Nebraska Cornhuskers (4-5, 2-4).
