Look at this kick. No, seriously. Look. Don’t take your eyes off it. Hit the rewind button a few times if you’d like. This, folks, is peak performance.

There will be no more perfectly executed onside kick in the history of college football. Place it in a museum. Scratch that, dedicate a new museum to it.

What you just witnessed was an Ohio State team — up 14-0 in the first quarter against a bad Maryland team on the road —deciding to challenge itself against inferior competition.

Sure, Chris Olave was essentially uncovered near the sidelines, but getting the ball to him required a kick with more precision than most college quarterbacks are capable of making with their arms. The man responsible for that work of art is Blake Haubeil, a junior from Buffalo, New York, who became the first placekicker to get a scholarship from Ohio State since Sean Nuernberger in 2014.

That was certainly a scholarship well spent.

Ohio State is playing without star defensive end Chase Young after he was suspended by the school on Friday “due to a possible NCAA issue from 2018 that the Department of Athletics is looking into.”

The Buckeyes didn’t really need him to beat Maryland though, especially when their kicker can drop a dime like that.
