OSU lost, 4-2.Credit: Kaley Rentz / Lantern reporterThe Ohio State men’s hockey team arrived at the Big Ten Tournament confident and motivated.The Buckeyes (14-19-3, 8-11-1) turned that into a 3-1 win against Penn State in the Big Ten quarterfinals, but couldn’t make it pass the semis. OSU’s confidence and motivation wasn’t quite enough, as the Buckeyes lost to No. 13 Minnesota, 3-0, to end their season Friday evening.Even though the Buckeyes didn’t make the championship game, coach Steve Rohlik had a positive outlook on the losing season. While he said he was proud of the team as a whole, Rohlik stressed the importance of the Buckeyes’ upperclassmen.“I’m even prouder of our eight seniors,” he said. “What they’ve done for our program, they’ve sent this program in the right direction. So, obviously I thank them.”Senior assistant captain forward Matt Johnson said even though the end result was disappointing, he was proud of his teammates’ desire to end the season confident and unified.“We really found our identity and started to roll with it,” Johnson said. “Going off of last year, we were very confident, just like this year, we beat every team in the conference. There was nobody we didn’t think we could beat.”Moving forward, the Buckeyes will be without eight seniors, who have seen the program transition from the hiring of a new head coach and a change of conference to the Big Ten from the Central Collegiate Hockey Association.“It’s really an incredible group,” Rohlik said. “They’re the ones that have been a big part of where this culture is and where it’s going. Their leadership pulled us along over the last couple months. They’re a big part of why we had a chance.”For Johnson and senior captain forward Tanner Fritz, the final game was emotional, but the two said they are excited for the program’s future.“​I see the program going, obviously, in the right direction,” Johnson said. “We do everything right here. We do it the right way. We have the great staff. To me, you just can’t get a better program.”“We’re always pushing to get better, and I know they’re going to do that in the following years,” Fritz added. “The only way to go is up from here.”Next year, the Buckeyes will look toward a new group of upperclassmen to lead them in the right direction.OSU has three key players returning in captain Sam Jardine, leading goalscorer Anthony Greco and 6-foot-5-inch defenseman Craig Dalrymple.   Beyond that trio, forward Nick Schilkey, defenseman Josh Healey and goaltenders Christian Frey and Matt Tomkins are all set to be back for another season as well.But regardless of the players, Rohlik said the team’s progression starts with the coach.“I mean, first and foremost, I’m going to have to take some time to reflect on myself because it starts with me,” Rohlik said. “I’ve got to be better.”With the return of a solid foundation, Rohlik said he is eager for the Buckeyes to come out with swagger, determination and success in the Big Ten next year.“The one thing that I want is to let people know we’re going to show up every night,” Rohlik said. “We’re going to come at you and play hard and our guys are going to leave it on the line. That’s our identity and that’s what we try to leave here today.” read more

Football Mike Weber becoming a leader in the locker room

OSU redshirt freshman Mike Weber (25) scores the Buckeyes’ first offensive touchdown of the day during the second half of the Buckeyes’ 30-27 overtime win against Michigan on Nov. 26. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorRedshirt sophomore running back Mike Weber has a lot to learn. However, after only one season as the featured tailback, Weber has been deemed the leader of the young Ohio State backfield. With big shoes to fill after running back Ezekiel Elliott declared for the NFL draft, Weber excelled in 2016 winning the Thompson-Randle El Big Ten Freshman of the Year. The Detroit native rushed for a team-high 1,096 yards with nine rushing touchdowns. Even with all of the success last season, Weber is not taking that for granted. “I try to put it past me and work as hard as I can to do better, reach more goals that I set for this year,” Weber said. OSU running backs coach Tony Alford said that he has seen a change in Weber’s approach to his body, on and off the football field, as well as his approach as a leader in the locker room to the younger running backs. Alford said that maturity and accountability comes with experience. “He’s growing up, and I’ve said that. And every time, there’s a little bit more growth process going on,” Alford said. “He’s much better pro now than what he was as far as how he’s handling his business.”Weber said that he has seen improvement in his ability to slow the game down a bit, watching the wide receivers and the tight ends and knowing what they will be doing. This increased knowledge, according to Alford, is the next step that the premier back needs to take. “That’s the biggest thing for guys like Mike (Weber) is we know you know, you’ve done it before,” Alford said. “Now it’s time to perfect it and challenge yourself on every small little detail on what’s going on.”One of the challenges Weber is facing is coming back from the rough end of the 2016 season. In the final two games of the 2016 season, a 30-27 double-overtime win over Michigan and a 31-0 Fiesta Bowl loss to Clemson, he combined for 50 rushing yards on 16 carries with only one touchdown run. The sting, especially from the loss to the Tigers, has not quite gone away from Weber. “I’m still getting over it actually,” Weber said. “I know we have to put it past us. I use it as fuel and I think we all do, on our team. I’ll tell you what, that bad taste won’t get out of our mouth until we play the first game.”Even if Weber is focused more on what is happening on the football field, Alford views him as a leader and an example to the younger backs on the roster, such as freshman running back JK Dobbins. “You are talking about a guy who has done it, done it at a very high level and he’s done it at a pretty good rate of speed,” Alford said. “JK (Dobbins) can learn from him by just standing with him, the same way Mike (Weber) learned from standing next to ‘Zeke.’” read more

Petit says Arsenal is wasting opportunities

first_imgFor the former Gunners midfielder, the English Premier League team is wasting its opportunities by not signing anybody during the transfer window.Arsenal has not spent a dime during the January transfer window in the English Premier League.But the team might need a player or two, as they are currently in the sixth position of the table with 47 points 15 points behind leaders Liverpool.For former Gunners midfielder Emmanuel Petit, Arsenal not getting any new footballers during the January transfer market window is a wasted opportunity.“The frustration level must be very high for Emery, as in only his second transfer window as Arsenal manager he was told he cannot sign anybody,” Petit was quoted by Sky Sports.“You look at the money Manchester United, Liverpool, and Manchester City spend and unless you join them and put the cash on the table to compete for the best players, you are going nowhere.”Not the end to the weekend we were all hoping for 😔But, there’s still another 13 @PremierLeague games to go – let’s dust ourselves down, regroup and we’ll go again at Huddersfield 👊#WeAreTheArsenal 🔴 pic.twitter.com/gTSzRMuDks— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) February 3, 2019Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Tottenham are not spending money but they are in the position Arsenal were in a few years ago, building a stadium, but there is no excuse for Arsenal now,” he complained.“If you sack Arsene Wenger and then say to the guy who replaces him ‘you have no money to spend on new players’, I would ask; what was the point of sacking Wenger in the first place?”“Defensively, Arsenal have not been good enough this season, so I was surprised they did not try to sign defenders in January. But the problems they have will not be solved by signing a player or two,” he continued.“Clearly, the defense is a problem. The better teams are getting through them far too easily, and when I hear Emery say he is happy with his defense and he does not need new players in these positions, I’m pretty sure he does not believe this.”💥 B A N G 💥Well done to @LacazetteAlex – you’ve voted his fine finish against @ChelseaFC as our January Goal of the Month 💫 pic.twitter.com/YKedat9Wfx— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) February 5, 2019last_img read more

KXIP vs RR R Ashwin to Mankad Jos Buttler again

first_imgWill the Mankading incident come back to haunt IPL?The IPL match between Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals would have been another game of the league with usual ramifications, if not for one thing that happened in their previous encounter – Mankading.Ravichandran Ashwin’s decision to run Jos Buttler out at the non-striker end without issuing the conventional warning led to heated debates on playing the game in the right spirit. Both players have stuck to their stated positions. Ashwin insists there is nothing wrong in doing what he did while Buttler remains adamant that Ashwin’s actions are not in keeping with the ‘spirit of the game.’So, as the two teams face off for the second time this season and the likelihood of Ashwin and Buttler coming face-to-face at the non-striker’s end increases, what can we expect? Here are five scenarios that may unfold when this situation arises.Déjà vuWe could see a repeat of the Mankading incident. Buttler may disregard what happened last time, thinking that after all the hullabaloo, Ashwin won’t dare to repeat his actions. He leaves his crease again but the Indian offie refuses to back down and dislodges the bails. Umpires are forced to give the batsman out. An angry confrontation ensues, both players argue in colourful language. More vilification of Ashwin in English media, more justification of his act in Indian media and a very tense atmosphere is created between the teams.Ashwin decides to issue a warningHaving seen the reaction to his Mankading of Buttler last time, Ashwin becomes more cautious. He notices Buttler stepping out of the crease again and, after aborting his delivery of the ball, turns around and tells Buttler that this is his first and last warning. Buttler nods his head and doesn’t repeat the mistake. It’s an unstated acceptance by Ashwin that his actions last time were not fully kosher but also a concession made by Buttler that he has to be careful. It will be interesting to see Ashwin’s response if Buttler ventures out of his crease againRavichandran Ashwin InstagramButtler exercises cautionOnce bitten, twice shy. After the incident in the previous match against KXIP, Buttler takes no chances and keeps not just his bat but even one of his feet behind the crease while Ashwin delivers the ball. There is no incident and match finishes without any controversy. The most boring, yet the most likely scenario.Royals turn the tablesStill feeling betrayed by Ashwin’s act, Rajasthan Royals decide to teach his team a lesson. They keep a close eye on all the batsmen from Kings XI to see who is leaving the crease before due time. When one of them does, the bowlers hits the wicket and points to the batsman being out of the crease. But the appeal is not made by the captain and Royals take the moral high ground.Revenge is sweetSimilar to the last scenario but with a crucial difference. The Royals do make an appeal and get the Kings XI batsman out. Ashwin cannot complain, neither could his team. The cricket world is again divided on the question of whether Mankading is morally justified. Royals though are enjoying the satisfaction of administering a dose of his own medicine to Ashwin.last_img read more
