(Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images)Ohio State freshman defensive end Sam Hubbard, who redshirted this past year despite receiving great praise from head coach Urban Meyer, finds himself in an interesting situation Wednesday night. Hubbard has agreed to take a high school girl named Sariah Yackee to prom if – and only if – she can amass 15,000 retweets on the below tweet. It seems that Hubbard’s teammate, Stephen Collier, was integral in facilitating the scenario. As-of 9:30 PM EST, the tweet, just a few hours old, has around 1,500 retweets.Alright so here’s the deal I need 15k to take this ohio state hunk @Sam_Hubbard_ to prom so retweet this pic.twitter.com/Arsm3ZBLaX— sariah yackee (@sariahyackee) February 5, 2015For those who aren’t well-versed with Twitter, 15,000 is a very high number of retweets for someone who doesn’t have a massive following.

OSU won, 4-2.Credit: Kelly Roderick / For The LanternThe Ohio State men’s ice hockey team (4-4-0) held on to an early lead and handed the No. 20 Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs a 4-2 loss.After the opening period Saturday, the Buckeyes led, 2-0, off goals from senior forward Alex Szczechura and sophomore forward Tyler Lundey.Although junior forward Max McCormick widened the gap with another Buckeye goal early, Duluth (4-3-1) made it a one-goal game by the end of the second period with goals from freshman forward Alex Iafallo and junior forward Caleb Herbert.The Buckeyes were the only team to score in the third period, with an unassisted empty-net goal by junior forward Ryan Dzingel with 33 seconds left in the game.Dzingel said Wednesday the games against Duluth were going to be fast-paced because the Minnesota team “likes to get up and down the ice.”Szczechura said the team managed to hold its own against the Bulldogs’ speed.“Our team as a whole can definitely handle a fast pace as a style of hockey we want to play, and tonight I think we played a good game — a very up-tempo game and very physical — and I think it helped us,” Szczechura said Saturday following the win.Junior forward Nick Oddo said sticking with the fundamentals of the game was what led to the Buckeyes’ victory.“Just keeping things simple,” Oddo said. “Coach (Steve Rohlik) always preaches to push the puck north, get it forward, chips, get pressure on their (defense), and I think doing those little things helped us.”Freshman Matt Tomkins played in the net for OSU for the full 60 minutes, saving a career-high 39 shots.The first game of the series was played Friday at the Schottenstein Center, where the Buckeyes fell to the Bulldogs, 3-1.“I can’t fault our effort,” Rohlik said. “We made mistakes, and the mistakes we made ended up in our net.”Despite losing Friday, Rohlik said it was one of the Buckeyes’ best performances so far this season.“To be honest with you, I think we probably played a more complete game (Friday),” Rohlik said Saturday. “I thought we played in spurts tonight, I thought we were very good early, but they kind of took over maybe in the middle there.”The Buckeyes, in the midst of a seven-game homestand, are slated to return to action Friday against Niagara at 7:05 p.m with the two-game series against the Purple Eagles concluding Saturday.
Senior defensive lineman Tommy Schutt (90) and junior defensive lineman Joey Bosa (97) wait to start the next drill during during the Buckeyes’ first spring practice on March 10 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.Credit: Tim Moody / Sports editorThe Ohio State football team took to the field Tuesday to begin spring practice less than two months after winning the first College Football Playoff National Championship.While there will be a plethora of focus on the quarterback battle, the Buckeyes also have to find replacements for eight departed starters.That means position battles across the board will be underway throughout spring practice and into the summer, with one of the key battles coming at defensive line.With defensive linemen Michael Bennett and Steve Miller graduating, the Buckeyes will need to fill two spots on the defensive front. Coach Urban Meyer said he is counting on the young defensive linemen on the roster to step up, but at the moment, there seems to be an issue with that.“I’m very disappointed in the young defensive linemen we brought in here,” Meyer said. “Not with the kind of people that they are, just with their performance.”The Buckeyes will have All-American Joey Bosa back for his junior season, as well as senior Adolphus Washington. They are expected to anchor the line once again, but Meyer said he fears the team could take a step back if the holes created by Bennett and Miller’s departure aren’t filled.“If Mike Bennett leaves and you’re not as good as Mike Bennett, our team is not as good,” he said.Although the shoes left to fill are large, there will be plenty of players competing for those spots. On the national championship roster, there were four junior defensive linemen, two sophomores and eight freshmen.Tommy Schutt, one of the four juniors on the 2014 roster and a potential replacement for Bennett, needs to be better, Meyer said. Schutt has started just two games in his career, the last of which came in 2013 against Illinois.Senior linebacker Joshua Perry said Schutt has been good in the past “in flashes,” but consistency has been an issue.“Tommy Schutt is an older guy, but he’s been really good in the past,” Perry said. “So we’re hoping for some consistency with him.”If Schutt struggles to be more consistent, Donovan Munger and Michael Hill, two redshirt-sophomores, might get the start on the interior opposite Washington come Sept. 7, when the Buckeyes are set to open their season against Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va. Munger rotated in on the line last season and recorded five total tackles. Hill appeared in three games early in the 2013 season before getting hurt and earning a medical redshirt.To replace Miller on the end, Meyer said he is looking at three players: Sam Hubbard, Jalyn Holmes and Tyquan Lewis.Redshirt-freshman defensive lineman Sam Hubbard participates in a drill during the Buckeyes’ first spring practice on March 10 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.Credit: Tim Moody / Sports editorHubbard redshirted last season, his first in Columbus, but Meyer was positive about his efforts.“We almost pulled his redshirt last year because he came on so hard,” Meyer said.Holmes, a sophomore from Virginia, rotated in on the defensive line last season and totaled five tackles during OSU’s blowout win against Kent State and four in a win over Illinois.Lewis, a redshirt-sophomore, had nine tackles in 2014, including one in the national title game.With all the different players battling for the two starting positions, Meyer said he plans to watch “very closely” and added that the young guys “have to get better.”Perry, who tallied 124 tackles last season, has more positive projections when it comes to the younger guys.“Across the board, we’ve just got a lot of guys that we wanna develop and make sure that we can have some depth but also so they can step in and be really good players for us,” Perry said.Perry added he expects the defense, with the new guys, to be “really good” next season, with the help of spring practice.“It’s a great time to get in and actually learn the game of football, really learn what we’re doing and also develop players so we can have some depth, some experience and be ready to rock ‘n’ roll,” he said.
