A painful lesson Matt Murschel Orlando Sentinel From the start, the Buckeyes tried to sweep all of this under the rug. The NCAA pulled that rug out from under the program Tuesday when it handed down a one-year postseason ban. The penalty is harsh — no Big Ten or national championship in 2012 — but it could have been a whole lot worse. Just ask USC fans who had to suffer through back-to-back seasons without postseason play.

In its first Big Ten home game, Maryland lost, 52-24, to Ohio State on Saturday. From a Terps perspective, here is a look at what went well and what did not during the game. THE GOOD Kicker Brad Craddock Craddock hit a school-record 57-yard field goal and is one of just three kickers nationally yet to miss a field goal after 10 or more attempts this season. Craddock also had touchbacks on three of his five kickoffs Saturday. Wide receiver Marcus Leak Leak had a highlight-reel-type catch during the third quarter, jumping and reaching above an Ohio State defensive back for a 25-yard gain along the sideline and then holding onto the ball as he fell out of bounds.

Launch him at once George Diaz Orlando Sentinel A better question would be: "Why hasn't Ohio State fired Jim Tressel yet?" Ohio State should have bounced him a long time ago. He is a liar and a fraud (just read his self-serving book, "The Winners Manual: For the Game of Life. " How about a sequel: "The Losers Manual: For the Game of Hypocrisy. " Ohio State shouldn't dawdle another day, but it's no surprise that administrators keep coddling Tressel.

On Saturday, Ravens players Torrey Smith and John Simon will both be in Indianapolis, as the Ravens get ready for Sunday's game against the Colts. But while Smith and Simon take care of their own Ravens-related responsibilities, both will also be tracking what happens between Maryland and Ohio State on Saturday in College Park. Smith starred at Maryland before being drafted in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft by the Ravens and still follows the team closely. “I don't know about the score, but I think we can beat them,” Smith said.

Blame it on the Tigers Matt Murschel Orlando Sentinel The Auburn football program should be first on the NCAA Infractions Committee's to-do list, although it's like trying to decide which is worse: Milli or Vanilli. History is against the Tigers. Auburn has been near the top of the list of schools with major NCAA infractions since the early 1950s. The recent allegations by former Auburn players that they were paid to play just brings the program back into the spotlight.

Quarterback Terrelle Pryor and four Ohio State teammates suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season apologized Tuesday for selling championship rings and memorabilia and taking discounts from a local tattoo parlor. The NCAA will permit all five to play in the Sugar Bowl against Arkansas on Jan. 4. Pryor, backup defensive lineman Solomon Thomas and starting tailback Dan Herron , wide receiver DeVier Posey and offensive tackle Mike Adams said they regretted their actions, which go back as far as two years.

Gilman's Cyrus Jones has decided to reconsider an offer from Ohio State after the Buckeyes hired Urban Meyer as their new football coach. Jones dropped West Virgnia from consideration but said Wednesday that Alabama, Auburn, Maryland and Virginia Tech remain in the running for his talents. The versatile senior gained 2,365 all-purpose yards this fall and scored 24 touchdowns for the No. 1 and MIAA A Conference champion Greyhounds. Ohio State had been on Jones' Top 10 list, but it dropped off along with Florida, Notre Dame, Penn Sate and Virginia when he first pared his list to five.

What others are saying about Jim Tressel and the Ohio State scandal: " ... there will be an enduring and justifiable taint to Tressel. This is a guy who has always talked skillfully about doing all the right things, but hasn't walked it very well. He won big and was dogged by NCAA violations at Youngstown State in the 1990s. Now the same is true at Ohio State. And now Tressel has been forced out of his dream job, one of the top five in America. If he's honest with himself, Tressel must wonder today how much easier life would have been if he'd just done the right thing when he got that first email warning him that his players were breaking the rules.

Jimmy Patsos prepared his Loyola University basketball team for this year's NCAA tournament long before the Greyhounds earned the school's first automatic bid in 18 years last week. The planning began in December, when Loyola played road games at St. Bonaventure and Kentucky in less than four days. Though the Greyhounds lost both -- by 10 to a Bonnies team that also qualified for this year's tournament by winning the Atlantic 10 and by 24 to the-then No.3 Wildcats, who enter the NCAA tournament as the overall top seed -- Patsos believes the experience his team had on the road in upstate New York and at fabled Rupp Arena will serve the Greyhounds well this week.

ESPN NFL draft analyst Todd McShay will be part of the crew calling Maryland's game against Ohio Saturday on ABC. To get a better feel for both teams, McShay spent part of this week watching film of the Terps' and Buckeyes' previous games. One of the players McShay apparently liked was Maryland fullback and Gilman alum Kenny Goins. "Maryland FB Kenneth Goins making quick rise to top of my favorite players on tape list,” McShay tweeted Thursday . “No. 30 is gonna find contact when he's on the field!

COLLEGE PARK - Randy Edsall's goal this week was to keep the pre-game preparation as routine as possible. The Maryland football coach told his team that Ohio State is just another opponent, that the Buckeyes have good players but the Terps do too. Nothing changed about Maryland's practice schedule. Edsall even turned down numerous interview requests because he did not want his players to see him doing anything different than he would during a normal week. But Edsall, his players and the rest of the program recognize the significance of Saturday's game against No. 20 Ohio State.

Back for a second season, we'll be previewing each of Maryland's football games by conducting a Q&A with a reporter who covers the Terps' next opponent. This week, we traded emails with Bill Rabinowitz , Ohio State beat reporter for The Columbus Dispatch. Be sure to check out  more of their coverage here  before the Terps and Buckeyes kick off Saturday at noon for the first Big Ten game at Byrd Stadium. Tracking the Terps: Ohio State wasn't overly impressive when the Buckeyes came out this way to open against Navy, and J.T. Barrett looked like a freshman through the first two weeks of the season.

For Maryland, Saturday's home game against Ohio State is big, a chance to knock off one of the power teams in the Big Ten and an opportunity for the Terps to establish themselves even more as a viable threat in their new conference. Ohio State, though, is used to being the favorite -- with less prestigious teams looking to knock the Buckeyes off. “We're going to go there, and we're going to welcome them to the Big Ten,” Ohio State tight end Jeff Heuerman told reporters after the Buckeyes' practice Wednesday . “We're going to go on the road, and it's going to be a big game, and we're going to show them what Big Ten football is, and hopefully it'll come out in our favor.” This is Maryland's first conference home game as a member of the Big Ten. It comes against a perennial national championship contender and a team with arguably the richest history in the Big Ten. “They're saying it's one of the biggest games in Maryland history,” Heuerman said.

COLLEGE PARK - Three times last week, Ohio State defensive backs were left looking at the back of Cincinnati wide receiver Chris Moore's jersey as Moore crossed the goal line at the end of a long touchdown catch-and-run. Ohio State (3-1) is great in the front seven. The Buckeyes have experienced players at linebacker, and their defensive line may be as good as any in the country. The pass defense is Ohio State's "Achilles' heel," said Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer during a teleconference Tuesday.

On Saturday, Maryland will take the field with Ohio State, one of the power teams in the Big Ten Conference and one of the favorites to win the East Division. The Terps believe they have the talent to beat teams like the Buckeyes. This is their chance to prove it. A win also would put Maryland at 2-0 in conference play with likely only one team more talented than Ohio State remaining on the Terps' schedule. This is a big opportunity for Maryland and a big game for a number of reasons.

COLLEGE PARK - When he's healthy, Braxton Miller is a star, a dynamic and multidimensional threat at quarterback and one of the top offensive weapons in the country. But even without Miller, who suffered a season-ending shoulder injury during preseason practice, Ohio State's offense is still gaining a lot of yards and scoring a lot of points in recent weeks. The play of Miller's replacement, redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, is one of the primary reasons why. Slowing Barrett down and trying to force the young quarterback into mistakes will be key for Maryland heading into Saturday's game against No. 20 Ohio State at Byrd Stadium.
