Gus Johnson screams about BBQ after OSU corner lays out Maryland WR
Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward laid a massive hit on Maryland’s Taivon Jacobs in the first quarter of Ohio State’s easy 62-14 win Saturday. The hit was so vicious, however, that it was deemed illegal targeting. Ward was ejected from the game.
Nonetheless, it was enough to get the passionate announcer Gus Johnson fired up. Johnson — who is never one to hold back on the emotion in big moments of sporting events — had quite a call following the hit.
“What a hit!” Johnson exclaimed. “Denzel Ward. You’ve got barbecue back there and you didn’t invite me? Hurt my feelings.”
BBQ? Hurt feelings? Can anyone explain what the hell Gus Johnson is talking about here??? pic.twitter.com/ah5wzar3b5

Ohio State led 41-7 at the half, as J.T. Barrett threw for three scores and ran for another; this was never a competitive game.
With the win, the Buckeyes improved to 5-1, while Maryland fell to 3-2.
