#10 Ohio State (4-1, 2-0) hosts Maryland (3-1, 1-0) today at 4:00

Maryland is set to face No. 10 Ohio State when it lines up at Ohio Stadium Saturday at 4pm on FOX.

The Terps enter Columbus 1-0 in Big Ten play after defeating Minnesota on the road, 31-24, behind third-string quarterback Max Bortenschlager, M. . A number of key factors led to the victory, most notably Maryland limiting its turnovers (0) and converting 9-of-16 third down conversions while protecting Bortenschlager (zero sacks allowed).

Maryland has won three games this season with three different starting quarterbacks, with Tyrrell Pigrome starting against Texas, Kasim Hill starting against Towson and Max Bortenschlager starting against Minnesota. Pigrome and Hill have since been ruled out for the season due to injury. Bortenschlager passed for two touchdowns and ran for a third in the Terps’ win over the Golden Gophers.

Junior wide receiver DJ Moore caught his fifth touchdown pass of the season against Minnesota to move into a tie for fourth in Maryland history with Minnesota Vikings star Stefon Diggs (2012-14) at 14 career TD receptions. Moore is off to an incredible start in 2017, leading the Big Ten in virtually every receiving category: receiving touchdowns (5), receiving yards (403), receiving yards per game (100.8) and receptions per game (7.5).

The Maryland defense has not allowed a 100-yard rusher in eight consecutive games dating back to 2016, with Nebraska’s Terrell Newby posting the most with 98 rush yards during the span on Nov. 19, 2016. Overall, the defense is allowing 131.8 rush yards/g in 2017, which ranks 48th nationally and seventh in the Big Ten – a far cry from last season when it ranked 99th nationally allowing 214.8/g.

Junior running back Ty Johnson has racked up 738 rushing yards (123.0/g) over his last six games dating back to 2016, averaging 10.3 yards-per-carry during the span. Johnson has totaled six rushing touchdowns in those six games, while eclipsing the 100-yard mark in five games during the span.

TERRAPINS OFFENSE

Wide receiver DJ Moore has been spectacular through the season’s first four games, leading the conference in virtually every receiving category: touchdowns (5), yards (403), yards per game (100.8) and receptions per game (7.5). Moore has had at least seven catches in every game this season. Prior to 2017, he had never had more than six receptions in a game.

Ty Johnson and DJ Moore currently represent arguably the nation’s top playmaking duo, ranking second (160.0/g) and third (146.3), respectively in all-purpose yards per game. They also rank eighth and 15th nationally, respectively. Johnson and Moore are the only teammates in the country in the top-25 in all-purpose yards per game.

Junior wide receiver DJ Moore has caught five touchdown passes through four games, becoming the first Maryland player to achieve the feat since Torrey Smith in 2010. He is the first Maryland player in the last 35 years to catch a touchdown in each of the first four games to open the season. His six total touchdowns through four games is the most for a Terrapin receiver since Jermaine Lewis had six touchdowns in 1993.

Junior running back Ty Johnson turned his eighth career 100-yard rushing game, and fifth in the last six games dating back to 2016, with a 130-yard effort at Minnesota. All eight of his 100-yard games have come in the last 14 games, with five against Big Ten opponents. Johnson capped off his fantastic day against the Gophers with a game-winning 34-yard touchdown run with 1:10 remaining.

Wide receiver DJ Moore currently leads Big Ten Conference with a reception in 25 straight games. It is the longest streak for a Maryland player since Torrey Smith finished his career with a 30-game reception streak from 2008-10. Moore currently has 11 touchdown catches over his last 17 games.

TERRAPINS DEFENSE

The Maryland defense notched two interceptions in the win against Minnesota, with Josh Woods catching the first of his career and JC Jacksonsealing the victory with less than a minute remaining. The Terps now have five interceptions through four games – most in a four-game stretch to open a season since 2014.

The Terps rank fourth in the Big Ten Conference with a +0.75/g turnover margin, winning the turnover battle in all three of its victories. Overall, they have totaled five interceptions and forced five fumbles (one lost) against just three interceptions and one forced fumble (zero lost). Last season, the Terps lost the turnover battle, 19-12, over the course of 13 games.

Maryland has made a habit of jumping out to fast starts this season, outscoring its opponents 45-7 in the first quarter. In fact, the Terrapin defense has yet to allow a point in the opening frame.

Senior linebacker Jermaine Carter, Jr. currently leads the Terps with 29 tackles on the season and appears poised to lead the team in the category for the third consecutive season. He would be just the fifth Maryland player to achieve the feat since 1969, joining Alex Wujciak (2008-10), D’Qwell Jackson (2003-05), E.J. Henderson (2000-02) and Ratcliff Thomas (1993-95).

The Maryland rush defense was stout against Minnesota, allowing just 80 yards on the ground in the game. It marked the third time in four games the defense has held its opponent under 100 yards rushing. Last year’s defense only held its opponent under 100 yards rushing once in 13 games, allowing 150+yards in 12-of-13.

TERRAPINS SPECIAL TEAMS

Graduate transfer Henry Darmstader came through in the clutch with a career-long 51-yard field goal as time expired in the first half against Minnesota last weekend. Darmstadter, who is Georgetown’s all-time kicking leader, had a previous long of 49 yards. It was the longest field goal for a Terps since Brad Craddock hit a 57-yarder against Ohio State in 2014. He has made a seamless transition into the lineup, including knocking down a Maryland record nine PATs against Towson in his Terrapin debut.

Former Purdue football coach Joe Tiller, one of college football’s brilliant offensive minds, dies at 74

 

Joe Tiller in huddle with Purdue players 2008 By Jainrajat11, Public Domain, https en.wikipedia.org

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Joe Tiller, one of the most beloved and popular figures in Purdue Athletics history, passed away Saturday morning at the age of 74 in Buffalo, Wyoming.

Tiller served as the Boilermakers’ head football coach from 1997 to 2008. The winningest coach in school history, he posted an 87-62 record, including 53-43 in Big Ten Conference games. Tiller’s 149 games coached are the most in Purdue annals.

“Joe Tiller was one of the great coaches in all of Purdue history,” Purdue president Mitch Daniels said. “The next time we go to the Rose Bowl, our first thoughts will be of him, and we will miss him every day in between. Our hearts go out to Arnette and the entire Tiller family.”​

Prior to Tiller’s hiring in November of 1996, Purdue football had played in a total of five bowl games. In the preceding 15 years, the Boilermakers managed merely a 54-107-5 record. Tiller introduced the spread offense to Purdue, featuring three, four, even five wide receivers and forcing defenses to cover the field from sideline to sideline. It was a radical change from the smash-mouth Big Ten style and, in the basketball-crazed state of Indiana, was dubbed affectionately “basketball on grass.”

The result was 10 bowl games, including the 2001 Rose Bowl, an average of more than seven wins per season and a Big Ten championship in 2000. Tiller coached 64 players who went on to the National Football League, six All-Americans and two Academic All-Americans.

Tiller was recognized as the 1997 Big Ten and national Coach of the Year.

In addition to the Rose Bowl, the Boilermakers played in the 1997 Alamo, 1998 Alamo, 2000 Outback, 2001 Sun, 2002 Sun, 2004 Capital One, 2004 Sun, 2006 Champs Sports and 2007 Motor City bowls. Purdue was nationally ranked in the Associated Press poll for 80 weeks — tied for the most under any coach in school history — including a high of No. 5 during the 2004 season.

“Today is a very sad day for me and the entire Purdue family,” said Drew Brees, who played quarterback for Tiller from 1997 to 2000. “Coach Tiller was an important person in my life and to so many other guys who played for him. He did so much more than teach us how to win. He taught us life lessons and how to be great leaders and men. My thoughts and prayers are with Arnette, Julie, Renee and Mike.”

Tiller topped Jack Mollenkopf for the most wins by a Purdue coach with his 85th victory – a 32-25 verdict over Central Michigan at Ross-Ade Stadium on Sept. 20, 2008.

“The entire Purdue football family is saddened to learn of the passing of coach Joe Tiller,” Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm said. “The respect he garnered from both his former players and the Purdue community speaks volumes for his contributions to the game and this university. He molded together a blueprint for success for Purdue football and pursued his vision in a way that players and fans were able to embrace. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Tiller family.”

Tiller served as head coach of the East team in the 2015 East-West Shrine Game and earned a 45-27 victory. He played for the West team in 1963 and became just the fifth individual to both play and coach in the Shrine Game.

From 1983 to 1986, Tiller was assistant head coach, defensive coordinator and defensive line coach at Purdue under Leon Burtnett.

“Joe took a chance coming back to Purdue, and all Boilermakers, and me in particular, are grateful,” said former Purdue athletics director Morgan Burke, who hired Tiller. “Joe was the best evaluator of talent I have ever seen. His dry wit endeared him to his players, and he knew how to coach and motivate them. I know the Purdue family joins me in expressing our condolences to Arnette and all of his family.”

The charismatic Tiller endeared himself to Boilermaker fans everywhere with his sense of humor and humility.

“People ask me about my legacy at Purdue, and I guess I see myself as a guy who came in and fit the place, and the place fit him – a man of the people,” Tiller said in 2008. “I’ve always prided myself on being able to get along with anybody, whether they are a major donor or someone who comes to one game a year. I’ve tried to respect everybody, so I would like my legacy to be that I was a good guy who could also coach football.”

In January of 2008, Tiller was awarded the Order of the Griffin, one of Purdue’s highest honors, given to individuals whose commitment to the university goes well beyond the call of duty, and whose strength and vision have greatly benefited the institution. He was appointed head coach emeritus by the board of trustees Nov. 21, 2008.

Tiller was inducted into the Indiana Football Hall of Fame in 2012 and the Purdue Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame in 2013. Joe Tiller Drive, located immediately north of Ross-Ade Stadium, was named in his honor in 2015.

Tiller’s 18-year head coaching record, including six seasons at Wyoming from 1991 to 1996, was 126-92-1, a .578 winning percentage. In 1996, Tiller led the Cowboys to a 10-2 record, the Western Athletic Conference championship game and a No. 22 final national ranking. Wyoming played in the 1993 Copper Bowl.

In 1989 and 1990, Tiller was assistant head coach, offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Washington State. Prior to that, he was offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Wyoming in 1987 and 1988.

From 1974 to 1982, Tiller spent nine seasons with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. He was an assistant coach (offensive and defensive lines) from 1974 to 1976, interim head coach for six games in 1976 (2-3-1 record), assistant general manager from 1977 to 1980 and director of administration and player personnel from 1980 to 1982.

Tiller was an assistant coach at Washington State from 1971 to 1973, spending one year as defensive line coach and two years as offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. In 1965, he began his coaching career as an assistant (offensive and defensive lines) at Montana State and was there through 1970.

A native of Toledo, Ohio, Tiller attended Rogers High School and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in secondary education from Montana State in 1965. He was an honorable mention All-American offensive tackle and team captain for the Bobcats. Tiller was drafted by the Boston Patriots of the American Football League in 1964 (18th round) but did not sign. He played for Calgary of the CFL during the 1964 season.

Tiller was inducted into the Montana State Athletics Hall of Fame in 1998.

Tiller is survived by his wife, Arnette; daughters, Renee and Julie; son, Michael; daughter-in-law Hilda; and grandchildren, Paulina, Lily, Gus and Tori. Tiller also is survived by brothers Charles Tiller of Manning, South Carolina, and Marvin Tiller of Toledo.

Ohio Northern shuts down big-play offense of Otterbein, 35-7

 

September 23, 2017

By Tim Glon

ADA — Ohio Northern celebrated its Homecoming Weekend with a 35-7 football victory over Otterbein on a warm Saturday afternoon at Dial-Roberson Stadium.

The Polar Bears (2-1 overall, 1-1 Ohio Athletic Conference) used a dominating second half in the victory, holding the Cardinals (3-1, 2-1) to just 40 yards of total offense and one first down in the final 30 minutes.

Meanwhile the ONU offense would gain 243 yards of offense and score 22 points in the second half to put the game away.

Ohio Northern had several outstanding performances on the offensive side of the ball, led by junior quarterback Will Freed (Carlsbad, Calif./San Marcos), who completed 28-of-33 passes for 311 yards and 4 TDs.

Junior receiver Chad Rex (Bradenton, Fla./Lakewood Ranch) caught six passes for 140 yards and three of those TD passes and sophomore tailback Christiaan Williams (Anna) ran 32 times for 162 yards and a TD.

“We were very concerned about Otetrbein’s offense coming into the game,” ONU head coach Dean Paul said. “They hadn’t been stopped yet this year. We had a solid week of preparation and that carried over into the game. We tackled well and contained their skill people. Offensively, we played well for the most part, but missed some scoring opportunities. But overall this was a good win against a good team.”

The Polar Bears took the opening kickoff and marched 74 yards on 10 plays and scored when Williams plowed in from a yard out. Junior Joe French (Elgin, Ill./St. Edward Central Catholic) made the extra point and it was 7-0 ONU with 5:40 gone in the contest.

OU tied the game at 7-7 on its second possession of the game, driving 65 yards in eight plays and scoring on a 16-yard pass from Logan Stepp to Hunter Joseph with 56 seconds left in the opening period.

Northern took a 13-7 lead into intermission when Freed hit junior Brenden Hadley (Bradenton, Fla./Lakewood Ranch) on a 21-yard TD pass with just 20 seconds left in the half.

The second half would be all Polar Bears as ONU would limit the OU offense to five 3-and-outs and a 5-play drive that ended in an interception by sophomore Greg Dennis (Mount Vernon).

Freed hit Rex on an 8-yard TD pass with 7:11 left in the third quarter to make it 19-7. Freed then hit Rex again on the 2-point conversion and it was 21-7 Polar Bears.

After a short Cardinal punt, Northern marched 45 yards in just three plays and scored on a 43-yard TD strike from Freed to Rex and it was 28-7 with 3:45 left in the third.

Junior Caleb Saalfeld (Modesto, Calif./Beyer) returned a punt to the OU 39-yard line early in the fourth quarter.

It took ONU seven plays to score and a 15-yard TD pass from Freed to Rex made it 35-7 with 8:55 left in the game.

Defensively, senior Zach Schmerge (Wapakoneta) had six tackles and junior Justin Croswell (Macomb, Mich./Lutheran North) had five tackles and a sack.

Ohio Northernout-gained Otterbein 496-142 in total offense (including a 319-71 advantage in the air), won the first down battle 25-9 and held the ball for 38:07.

The Polar Bears will return to action next Saturday with a 1:30 pm contest at No. 2-ranked Mount Union in Alliance.

Recapping, high-scoring Cardinals offense wallops Wilmington on Homecoming, 56-28 to go 3-0

 

WESTERVILLE, Ohio – The Cardinal football team remained perfect on the young season Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium, flying past visiting Wilmington College by a score of 56-28 as part of Homecoming weekend.

Otterbein, now 3-0 overall and 2-0 in the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC), opened a 28-0 lead by halftime and ultimately finished the day with 466 yards of total offense.

The Cards needed just two plays to score on their opening possession, as quarterback Logan Stepp connected with wide receiver Julian Lowe on a 39-yard aerial strike. Otterbein had taken over in plus-territory after senior defensive end Kyle Blust blocked a Wilmington punt.

Otterbein proceeded to build the lead from that point with three more touchdowns prior to intermission. Stepp was involved in all three, finding tight end Josh Plieninger on a six-yard pass, punching a short one in himself on fourth-and-goal, and then hitting Lowe on a quick strike near the goal line a bit later.

The Cards moved the lead to 35-0 early in the third quarter on a defensive touchdown, watching corner Prince Franklinintercept a pass and sprint 26 yards to pay dirt. Wilmington (1-1, 0-1 OAC) was able to notch a pair of TD’s in the third quarter, but Otterbein continued moving the ball at ease to keep the Quakers at a comfortable distance.

Running backs Isaiah RichmondChristian Johnson and Dakota Smith all added second-half touchdowns in the ground game, with Johnson pacing the group at 91 yards on 16 totes.

Stepp continued his sharp play, completing 16 of 20 passes for 227 yards and three scores. He also added a rushing score and now has 14 total TD’s on the season.

Wide receiver Hunter Joseph, the reigning OAC ‘Offensive Player of the Week,’ turned in six catches for 110 yards while Lowe finished with five grabs for 72 yards and the pair of touchdowns. He needs six more to tie the program’s career record of 29.

Senior linebacker Austin Jones tied for a game-high nine tackles while fellow running mates Steven Masters and Ryan Tuchow both tallied eight. Freshman cornerback Brandon Paschal made his third interception of the year.

Wilmington’s P.J. Meyer matched Joseph for a game-high six catches, resulting for 102 yards. Otterbein held a 26-14 edge in first downs.

Otterbein will not play at home again for a month, beginning a four-week stretch that includes three road games and a bye. The Cards will travel to Ohio Northern this coming Saturday for a 1:30 kickoff.
