COLLEGE PARK, Md. Cheap Maple Leafs Jerseys . -- Ohio State seems to be getting into a rut -- the good kind that can lead to championships.J.T. Barrett accounted for four touchdowns, Curtis Samuel scored three TDs and the sixth-ranked Buckeyes enjoyed another 62-3 rout -- this time, against Maryland on Saturday.After beating then-No. 10 Nebraska by the identical score last week, Ohio State poured it on against the Terrapins, going up 21-3 after the first quarter and 45-3 at halftime.Its just that time of year where youre getting closer to the playoffs and championship games, Samuel said. We know weve got to step it up. Weve got to come out here every day and give it our all, put up numbers.Unlike last week, this blowout was no surprise because it came against a struggling team with quarterback issues and a porous defense. But playing well in November is what counts, no matter the level of the competition.Thats where you really hang your hat on for the season, Barrett said. We try to do our best in those games.Ohio State (9-1, 6-1 Big Ten, No. 5 CFP) has won three straight to remain in contention for the Big Ten title and, more importantly, a berth in the College Football Playoff.We know exactly whats coming down the road, coach Urban Meyer said.Maryland (5-5, 2-5) lost 59-3 to Michigan last week and has allowed 163 points during a three-game losing streak.Back to back weeks when the game got away from us early, coach DJ Durkin lamented. Obviously, the level of competition the past couple weeks factors in, but weve kind of lost our way ourselves.With Barrett and Samuel leading the way, the Buckeyes eliminated any potential drama by scoring touchdowns on three of their four possessions in the first quarter.Samuel got things started with a 2-yard touchdown run. Barrett then took it in from 4 and added a 36-yard TD pass to Samuel.In between, the Buckeyes punted for the first time two weeks. Also, backup quarterback Caleb Rowe led the Terps to a field goal. But even that was disappointing because Maryland failed to get into the end zone after a 37-yard completion produced a first down at the Ohio State 3.Rowe took over for Perry Hills, who was injured at the end of Marylands second drive. Rowe proved ineffective and was replaced in the second half by true freshman Tyrrell Pigrome.Barrett made it 28-3 with a 1-yard run early in the second quarter and Samuel got his third touchdown around right end from the 5.Meyer replaced Barrett during a third-quarter drive that ended with a TD for a 55-3 lead. Barrett ran for two touchdowns, threw two scoring passes and finished 18 for 27 for 253 yards.Samuel ran for 38 yards and caught five passes for 74 yards. Freshman Mike Weber carried 12 times for 93 yards.POLL IMPLICATIONSThis blowout victory , combined with No. 3 Clemson losing to Pittsburgh, should boost the Buckeyes up a notch or two in both the AP poll and the CFP.THE TAKEAWAYOhio State: The Buckeyes are gaining momentum heading into the most important part of the season. The offense has been unstoppable over the past two weeks and the defense limited Maryland to 176 yards and 10 first downs. With one defeat, Ohio State cant afford to slip up as it heads toward a Nov. 26 showdown with No. 2 Michigan, the undefeated East Division leader.Maryland: After opening 4-0, the Terrapins are now a .500 team still in search of the sixth win needed to become bowl eligible. Maryland cant seem to keep Hills healthy and has come unglued defensively this month.MISSING YOUThe Terrapins announced the suspension of three players before the game, including running back Lorenzo Harrison, who leads the team with five rushing touchdowns.UP NEXTOhio State travels to Michigan State, which whipped Rutgers 49-0 Saturday. Its the Buckeyes final tuneup before the regular-season finale at home against Michigan.Maryland faces Nebraska on the road in a matchup of the Buckeyes last two victims.---www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 White Maple Leafs Jerseys . -- Nate Robinson has played for seven teams, so beating one of them is no longer a rare occurrence. Youth Maple Leafs Jerseys .C. -- After a listless first half, the Washington Wizards used a big third quarter run to beat the Charlotte Bobcats Bradley Beal scored 21 points and the Wizards used a 17-0 run in the third quarter to take control of what had been a close game and beat the Bobcats 97-83 on Tuesday night. http://www.authenticmapleleafsshopnhl.com/ . Vaives lawyer Trevor Whiffen claims the former 50-goal man wasnt provided with a copy of the claim beforehand and that he would not have agreed to the allegations made against the NHL had he been asked to review its contents. RIO DE JANEIRO -- The words, scrawled in marker on the tops of his sneakers, remind Kevin Durant why he started playing basketball in the first place.Even in the Olympics, its just a game.On his left sneaker, Durant scribbled, Have Fun. On the right one, Smile.I forgot to write it last night, Durant said grinning on Thursday.Thats about the only thing he didnt do. Durant scored 27 points with seven rebounds and six assists in a quarterfinal blowout of Argentina. He also executed a two-crossover, Euro-step, one-legged fadeaway in the lane, a sequence of intricate basketball moves that might make an Olympic gymnast envious.With the U.S. team needing a lift, something to shake it from this South American slumber and re-direct the angst aimed at the 2016 collection of NBA All-Stars after three lackluster victories, Durant delivered.This is the stage he thrives on, said U.S. point guard Kyrie Irving. You can count on KD being KD in the biggest moments, which we have all come to respect and kind of rely on.Durants performance against Argentina pushed the U.S. a step closer to its third straight gold medal and set up a semifinal showdown on Friday with Spain, the two-time defending silver medalist hoping a third time is championship charmed against the Americans.After deferring to his teammates and taking just 10 shots in the previous two games, Durant was in attack mode from the outset against the Argentines, who jumped out to a 19-9 lead before the U.S. erupted on a 27-2 run and into Rios semis with a 105-78 win.This was the Durant everyone had been waiting for, the one who shot the U.S. to a 2010 world championship in Turkey, scored 30 in the gold-medal game in 2012 and has reached double digits in all 14 Olympic games hes played.Durant had not been himself earlier in the tournament, and maybe its not a coincidence that the U.S. team had not played up to expectations -- as unrealistic as that sometimes seem -- while squirming through pool play undefeated.But when the stakes got higher, Durant again raised his game and perhaps motivated his teammates. Hes averaging 18.5 points and shooting 66 percent (18 of 27) on 3-pointers.I dont think I inspired them just because I scored points, he said following practice at the Flamengo Club, a short drive from scenic Leblon Beach. I just think my energy, my aggressiveness and jusst being excited to play, I think that rubbed off on everybody and I just try to display that every time I play. Maple Leafs Jerseys Store. I got away from that the last couple of games, but I just always try to stay conscious of just smiling out there, having fun. My smile is contagious and my energy and enthusiasm for the game is contagious and I try to spread that to my teammates.That smile disappeared for a short time earlier this summer.Durants decision to leave Oklahoma City as a free agent and sign with Golden State, forming a super team with Stephen Curry and U.S teammates Draymond Green and Klay Thompson, brought criticism and questions about him for the first time in his career.Durant was branded a quitter, unable to win a championship without help. He was called soft, overrated, insecure and worse. The noise was deafening, and Durant found the only way to drown it was to ignore it.It took me some time to get used to everything on the outside of a game, whether it was media or fans and their points of view, he said. What I had to learn over the last few years was just to relax, dont care if I missed a shot or if I turned the ball over or if I dont box out and someone scores on me. I cant worry about that stuff and that just keeps me calm in those moments.When the U.S. team convened for training camp in Las Vegas, center DeAndre Jordan offered Durant some advice.I told him, `You gotta worry about you, said Jordan, who had his own free agency fiasco in 2015. You cant worry about what other people say. They dont have to play in that city or play for that team. Its ultimately whats best for Kevin. And once I told him that, he kind of relaxed a little bit. Im happy for him.Durant seems at ease, finally at peace with his decision. Hes enjoyed his time with Thompson and Green, and believes their Olympic chemistry will carry over once theyre with Curry.For now, though, Durant is focused solely on this team, which is taking its cues from a player who once he steps onto the floor morphs from laid-back to into an offensive juggernaut.When hes attacking, it sends a lightning bolt through the team, Jordan said.The Americans were looking for direction, and Durant is showing them the way.Smiling every step.
