National companies and chains eyeing High Street

Students look to pressure Wendy’s contract with weeklong hunger strike

Companies like Chick-fil-A, Starbucks and Chipotle looking to open new locations NICK ROLL Campus Editor While North High Street might look unfamiliar to those who attended Ohio State just a few years ago, they’ll definitely be familiar with the businesses set to move in once the construction wraps up. Chick-fil-A, Target National fast-food chain Chickfil-A applied to the University Area Review Board last week to put one of its restaurants in The Wellington, the mixed-use apartment complex spanning North High Street between East 16th and 17th avenues. It is set to share the first floor with a Target store. The Target, announced in September, is set to open in July 2018, just ahead of the complex’s apartments, which are set to open that August. It is not clear when the Chick-fil-A is opening, and Ryan Szymanski, vice president of Edwards Properties, the building’s developer and manager, was not available for comment. Now demolished, campus bars Chumley’s and Bernie’s Bagels and Distillery were previously located in that space. Chumley’s, which came to Columbus in 2012, was the third location for the sports bar’s owners. It’s set to reopen in August on the ground floor of a five-story complex on

S.M.A.R.T. lab teaches students stress management, resiliency skills SUMMER CARTWRIGHT Senior Lantern reporter A new addition to campus is aiming to help Ohio State students get S.M.A.R.T. It’s not a new course or tutoring center — it’s a lab located in the Student Wellness Center focused on helping students with stress management and resiliency training. The S.M.A.R.T. lab, which opened in early February, was created by Paul Granello, an associate professor in the Department of Educational Studies. It is home to relaxation, individual and group counseling, as well as biofeedback training. “There is too much stress on

“I think what’s really cool about the biofeedback is that (students) can come in and see how stressed they are, or they can see that technique immediately helping, and then over time they can use these new skills that they’re being taught.”

Students from the Ohio State Student/Farmworker Alliance will cut more than just Wendy’s out of their diet this week. On Monday, members began a weeklong fast coupled with a daily presence outside of Bricker Hall in protest of OSU’s contract with Wendy’s. Members of the Student/Farmworker Alliance said the purpose is to intensify pressure on the university to end its current contract with Wendy’s. The Student/Farmworker Alliance is demanding Wendy’s join the Fair Food Program and adhere to its standards for tomato pickers. The program has added 14 major corporations to its program, including McDonald’s, Burger King, Chipotle and Wal-Mart, but it hasn’t convinced Wendy’s to join. The Fair Food Program, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers — a workers’ rights organiza-

tion — and the Alliance for Fair Food work together to ensure the protection of rights and wages for farmers and farmworkers in Immokalee, Florida, according to their websites. Unlike McDonald’s and Burger King, for example, which buy tomatoes from farms in Florida that are protected by the Fair Food Program’s code of conduct, Wendy’s gets its tomatoes from Mexico. “We are fasting to prove to the administration that our demands have not yet been met, and that means they must end the contract,” Alex Hoey, a second-year in geography and member of the Student/ Farmworker Alliance, said in an email referring to OSU’s contract with Wendy’s. OSU spokesman Ben Johnson said the university remains committed to continuing its work on this issue, but emphasised “the university does not support any potentially harmful actions that could jeopardize the health and well-being” of students.

campus, and I think this stress underlies a lot of problems that students have, including everything from sleeping well to substance abuse to potentially violence and other kinds of problems,” Granello said. “I think that not everybody knows how to do stress management naturally, and so this is an opportunity for the counselor

education program at OSU.” Students who come to the S.M.A.R.T. lab first talk with a counselor on what is causing them stress. The counselors then come up with ideas on how to manage stressors specific to a student’s needs, which could include working with biofeedback software. S.M.A.R.T. CONTINUES ON 2

Campus area crime map March 14 - 19 MITCH HOOPER Engagement Editor


A rape reportedly occurred at an off-campus location east of North High Street on Friday between midnight and 2 a.m. (Not pictured on map.) 1. A woman reported a firearm had been improperly discharged into her home on North Fourth Street near East Eighth Avenue on March 13 at 4:59 a.m. 2. A staff member reported a known suspect for possession of drug abuse instruments and drug paraphernalia to University Police at Rhodes Hall on Sunday at 12:17

a.m. 3. Three victims reported a robbery had occurred near the intersection of Iuka and Waldeck avenues on Sunday at 12:50 a.m. According to the police log, the victims stated the suspects allegedly stole their wallets. 4. A man not affiliated with the university was arrested for theft at Doan Hall on Saturday at 4:30 a.m. Note: Crimes featured on this map do not represent the full extent of criminal activity in the campus area.



This software allows students to observe their heart rates and breathing. An ear clip transmits the information to a computer, which then translates the information into a coherence score — a high score means the user is relaxed, a low score means the user is not. With this information, facilitators can help students learn breathing techniques through games and videos that will in turn slow down their heart rate, helping reduce stress. “We can actually teach people how to improve over a few sessions — how to be better at invoking a relaxation and response in their body,” Granello said. Granello said he also sees the lab as a preventive service for students who are stressed. His involvement with the OSU Suicide Prevention Program inspired him to create the program and method of stress management. “Just knowing how many phone calls and students they interact with, and everything that goes on with that program, just convinces me that a lot of people could benefit from stress management before things get to the point where they have to go for counseling or over to Counseling Consultation Services,” Granello said. Maria Lammy, a graduate associate in the S.M.A.R.T. lab and a doctoral student in counselor education said she has seen the positive impact biofeedback has on participants. “I think what’s really cool about the biofeedback is that (students)

emotion and responds with certain hormones that can be really hard on your body,” Lammy said. “Then if you’re in a state of gratitude or peaceful or happy, then the body is releasing totally different chemicals that are rejuvenating and can really help you.” Students can also benefit from the lab during more traumatic events in their life, Lammy said. If occurances like a breakup, a death or mental health issues arise, then knowing the stress management skills taught in the lab could help students get through these problems with resilience, she said.

“I really want students to be empowered,” Lammy said. “To not feel like, ‘Oh, my anxiety is taking over my life,’ or ‘There are so many stressful things. I can’t cope anymore.’ I want students to feel like, ‘Wow. I’m strong enough that I can handle this, and I have tools that will help me. And no matter what I face, there are tools to help me get through that.’” An open house for the S.M.A.R.T. lab is set to be held on Wednesday and will include tours of the facility as well as a presentation on the basic concepts the lab promotes.

OSU’s contract with Wendy’s, which leases a location at the Wexner Medical Center, states the school will work to find “a resolution of the concerns of the Student Farmworkers Alliance regarding the procurement of tomatoes for the operation of Tenant’s business at the Premise that is satisfactory to Landlord in its sole discretion.” Previously, the university set up a meeting between Wendy’s and the Student Farmworkers Alliance, but the group declined to meet, citing a message posted to Wendy’s website dating from 2013. In the statement, which has since been updated and changed, Wendy’s said it was being targeted by CIW and that the restaurant should only have to negotiate directly with the supplier, not a third-party organization like CIW. The group plans to meet outside Bricker Hall at 8:30 a.m. every day this week and hold open meetings at 4 p.m., where administration members are invited to join the discussion. Group member Ben Wibking, a graduate student in astronomy, said the meetings are designed to foster “meaningful conversation” with the administration, but ultimately to get OSU to end its contract with Wendy’s as soon as possible. “We want (University President Michael Drake) to come and explain that if they can end their Wendy’s contract now, why aren’t they doing that,” Wibking said. The weeklong fast outside of Bricker Hall will be paired with daily protests outside of the Wendy’s headquarters in nearby Dublin, Ohio, demanding that Wendy’s join the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and the Fair Food Program, according to a press release from the CIW. The CIW is hosting a march through Columbus on Sunday to mark one year of its campaign to boycott Wendy’s. Laura Kington, an OSU alumna and member of Ohio Fair Food, said the fast was in solidarity with the farmworkers who the group says Wendy’s is exploiting. “Wendy’s has the fundamental responsibility to listen to the farmworkers who make their profits possible, and to listen to their own neighbors here in Columbus,” Kington said in a press release. Wendy’s recently updated code of conduct states that all suppliers are expected to comply with the respective labor laws accepted in that country. For farmworkers in Mexico, tomato suppliers must comply with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labor Organization, and Wendy’s encourages suppliers to respect human rights. The update also stated that Wendy’s might meet with third-party groups and governmental organizations “with the intent of furthering our responsibility commitments and sustainability stewardship.” However, no third-party groups were mentioned by name in the update.

Amazon Online retailer Amazon is also slated to open a brick-and-mortar location in the space previously occupied by UniversiTees at 2114 N. High St. According to its website, UniversiTees sells apparel for 14 different universities, and has five physical stores across Ohio, Indiana and West Virginia. Amazon gave its first presentation to the University Area Review Board last week. When the Columbus UniversiTees location announced it was closing, Chris Hooper, the manager, told The Lantern that construction along High Street made moving to a different location near campus difficult. “As of right now, there’s nowhere to move on High Street,” he said. The former UniversiTees building doesn’t stand in the way of the 15th and High project, but Hooper said construction from that project has rendered most of High Street between East 14th and 17th avenues unavailable for the time being. A representative from Amazon declined to comment on when the store might open. Student input A survey released in February by Undergraduate Student Government showed that

ment for Campus Partners. “Edward’s Communities handles the leasing for those retail spaces,” Prosser said in an email. Amazon, White Castle, Starbucks and Chipotle fall out of the area designated for development in the 15th and High plan. The data from the survey also showed that students wanted to see campus bars Too’s, Midway on High and Chumley’s on North High Street, as well as a Target — though Target’s plans had already been announced. Prosser said Campus Partners has seen the survey. “The survey is something that we will definitely take into account once we are to that point with our part of the project,” she said. “We look forward to working with USG and other student groups in 2017 to continue to gather input on the future of 15th and High. Right now we are focused now on the infrastructure work set to start this month, which will continue until mid 2018.”

40th annual School of Music Jazz Festival features performances, education

MEGAN WEISS Lantern reporter Ryan Gosling’s character in “La La Land” isn’t the only one who cares about jazz. Ohio State’s School of Music will be presenting its 40th annual Jazz Festival this week. This year, the event was expanded from four to five days. From Wednesday to Sunday, the School of Music will showcase jazz through performances from faculty, students and visiting professional jazz musicians. The celebration also will feature master classes and workshops for high school students taught by OSU professors. “The 40th anniversary of this festival proves that there is a rich and storied tradition of jazz performance and education at The Ohio State University, which we are proud to carry forward for many years to come,” Collin Wood, a graduate student in musical arts, said in an email. “The festival showcases our students and faculty, and demonstrates our commitment to the advancement of jazz education at this university and in the community.” The jazz program at OSU started in 1967 when students formed a band called Jazz Band Workshop. The band won a national competition, which allowed for a jazz program at OSU, which previously wasn’t offered for credit.


Ohio State Jazz Ensemble is set to perform March 26 to close the 40th annual Jazz Festival. It was not until 1977 that the OSU jazz studies program created the first annual Jazz Festival in order to expose both students and the community to the world of jazz and all it has to offer through concerts and guest artists, said Shawn Wallace, director of jazz studies. Things will come full circle for Ladd McIntosh, who was the leader of the original Jazz Band Workshop and will recieive an award at the Saturday night concert for his contributions to the program. The headliner for Saturday night is Co-

The audience will also see the premiere of a piece composed by Anthony Stanco, a lecturer in jazz studies in the School of Music. The OSU Jazz Ensemble raised more than $2,700 in order to commission this piece to present for the celebration of 40 years. “This piece presents a wide gamut of styles covering the 40 years of jazz evolution, the audience is going to love it,” said

Kris Keith, director of jazz ensemble. Throughout the five days of the festival, jazz performances will be showcased. On Wednesday night, regular Columbus Jazz Orchestra participants The Bobby Floyd Trio and Bryan Olsheski will be performing. The Ohio Show Band will perform music a bit outside the jazzz genre including gospel, folk and R&B on Thursday night. Friday night The Ohio Jaztet will perform with guest artist Vincent Chandler on trombone. The Ohio Jaztet features Stanco on trumpet, Wallace on saxophone, and lecturers in jazz studies Kevin Turner on guitar, Andy Woodson on bass and Jim Rupp on drums. “I was invited to play in the festival in 1996, so it is interesting to go from playing to now running the festival,” Wallace said. “I will be performing in Friday’s show. It will be very intellectually stimulating for both the audience and musicians.” Jazz workshops will be offered Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Steinbrenner Band Center at Ohio Stadium. The former Ohio State Jazz Speciality Days have been combined into one day where participants will learn about topics including improvisation, section playing, specific techniques, and instrument maintenance.

TIA WILLIAMS Lantern reporter Discussing the health benefits of petting dogs and taking cheetahs for walks are just two ways members of the Human Animal Interactions Club spend their weekly meetings. The new Human Animal Interactions Club, whose first meeting was in late January, discusses the different relationships that exist between humans and animals. The club also helps connect students to faculty members who have interest in the subject to open up more research opportunities and projects. Shannon Kelley, co-president of Human Animal Interactions and a second-year in animal sciences, said the club is based on

four pillars of human-animal interactions: animal welfare and behavior, conservation, therapy animals and companion animals. “We talk about the aspects of those interactions, like how humans and animals interact and how that relates to human medicine,” Kelley said. “For example, they say petting a dog helps improve your cardiovascular health. That’s the kind of research we discuss.” The club is currently collaborating with Dr. Louisa Richmond-Coggan, founding partner and project manager of a project called ConservationFIT, to help collect data for a new app. Hannah Bradley, co-president of Human Animal Interactions and a third-year in zoology, said the app will allow researchers to take a photo of animal tracks in the wild ANIMALS CONTINUES ON 5

Makeup workshop encourages women to speak out against sexual violence KAYLEEN PETROVIA Lantern reporter For Jessica Hill, the fiery red color of her lipstick symbolizes her boldness in raising awareness of abuse. Hill, a survivor of sexual assault and founder of Columbus-based lipstick company, Lipstk Goblin, will lead a discussion and Q-and-A session during Wednesday’s Women’s History Month event, “I Slay: A makeup workshop and open dialogue.” The workshop also will feature a live demonstration of makeup application by Rian Hamadnalla, the event organizer and a fourth-year in African-American and African studies and women’s gender and sexuality studies. Hamadnalla said the event is the first of a series of workshops that will use a common interest in makeup to empower women to unite in confronting the issues they fight. She said women and men of all ethnicities and races are welcome to attend, but the experiences of women of color will be emphasized. “I wanted to create an intimate setting where black women can get to know each other and, hopefully from that, black women on our campus will be able to manifest a trust and be a little more comfortable discussing things like sexual violence and rape culture, because if they’re not talking about it, we really can’t tackle the issue,” Hamadnalla said. Hill said she will share her personal story as a victim of child molestation and rape in adulthood during the first half of the event. She said she hopes her vulnerability will create an understanding of the reality and commonality of sexual violence. “I remember being a college girl and I remember thinking that wouldn’t happen to me because I could handle myself, and I remember thinking it was a specific type of girl that would normally be sexually assaulted, so I just want to bring more awareness of it,” Hill said. Hill said makeup provided a vehicle to express herself following

traumatic experiences when she was otherwise afraid to do so. She said wearing colorful lipsticks encouraged her to step outside of her comfort zone and embrace her individuality. “We live in a world where we constantly feel like we’re being judged, but you have to hit a point in life where you have to say, ‘Forget everyone else and what everyone else is thinking and the limitations they’ve put on me’ and you have to learn to live for you,” Hill said. Similarly, Hamadnalla referred to makeup as a type of therapy and said she believes wearing makeup empowers women from all walks of life to feel more confident and independent. “We often shun makeup or men say, ‘Oh, you guys are wearing makeup, we don’t know what you look like underneath all that,’ and it’s like, ‘Who cares,’” Hamadnalla said. “We’re not wearing it for you, we’re wearing it because we enjoy it.” While Hill said makeup served as her avenue to recovery, she said there are many paths to healing from sexual assault. She said she hopes her story provides hope for women who have faced similar circumstances and urges others to come together on their behalf. “Yes, rape is real,” Hill said. “Yes, child molestation is real, but also, it is very possible for you to live a life afterwards. Is it hard? Most definitely, but there is life after.” “I Slay: A makeup workshop and open dialogue” will take place on Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Alonso Family Room of the Multicultural Center in the Ohio Union.


In honor of Women’s History Month, Rian Hamadnalla and Jessica Hill will host a makeup tutorial and Q-and-A session on sexual violence on March 22.

and be able to know what species it is, its gender, how old it might be and possible relationships with other members of its species. “Their goal is to to have a big database full of paw prints from different species,” Bradley said. “So at the Columbus Zoo, we walk some cheetahs through sand, get the picture of their paw prints, get some measurements and add it to the database.” The club isn’t just for animal sciences majors, Kelley said. The topics discussed in club meetings are broad and relate to other majors as well. “We have international business majors, public health majors, zoology majors,” Kelley said. “We want to branch out to other colleges and majors so that we can help connect those kids to faculty members or different places where they can have experience in hu-

man-animal interactions.” The club’s next major event is planned for April 23, where Dr. Rustin Moore, dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine, will speak to the club at the Union Senate Chamber. “He’ll be talking about the relations between pets and humans, and how they are a part of One Health Initiative,” Kelley said. “One Health Initiative is basically combining veterinary and human medicine to better both sides.” The Human Animal Interactions Club offers open membership, and meets Thursdays at 6:30 p.m in Kottman Hall room 102.

24 touchdowns in 2016. Since Barrett graduated in the fall, his entire life has been dedicated to the program. “I have my degree, so with that, school is taken care of. And now it’s really ball,” Barrett said. “That’s what I have left here at Ohio State. I’m taking a couple classes. They’re online. So right now, my life is football, literally. Now it’s literally just ball.” Barrett had been framed as one of the maladies that plagued OSU’s passing offense that ranked 81st in the country in 2016. He certainly had his struggles throwing the ball last season, but that was one of the least of the offense’s problems. Barrett was working with an inexperienced receiving corps that struggled with separation for the defensive backs. When he had to adjust for that aspect with an of-

fensive line that allowed more than two sacks per game, it’s difficult to place much blame on Barrett when crunching the numbers and considering the lack of a downfield passing presence in the play calling. This year, Barrett will again deal with an inexperienced group of receivers, but he should have some more help with co-offensive coordinators Kevin Wilson and Ryan Day — the latter being Barrett’s position coach. Day couldn’t have joined the program at a better time for Barrett, who has said he wants to play in the NFL. Day has 15 years coaching experience, including two seasons in the NFL. Wilson has been deemed the founder of a football culture at Indiana — a program that went from one win his first season to two straight bowl appearances — and an of-

fensive mastermind who likes to stretch opposing defenses vertically. Not only has Wilson worked with his own position group at tight end, but Barrett said Wilson has had an influence on him and the receivers. Wilson told the receivers that they aren’t trying to beat the opposing cornerback necessarily, rather get open for Barrett before the defensive line reaches the backfield. “(Day and Wilson are) bringing in some good things that they’ve used in the past that we can incorporate into our offense ‘cause our offense, it’s not broken, but there’s definitely some things that we can update and adjust, and that’s what he’s doing,” Barrett said. Wilson has had his eyes on Barrett since the signal caller’s freshman year. Now, instead of dreading facing Barrett, he becomes the

beneficiary of his success. And with a deep quarterback group with redshirt sophomore Joe Burrow, redshirt freshman Dwayne Haskins and freshman Tate Martell, Wilson truly has a new perspective on Barrett’s influence on the team. “Now that I’m here, you see more about him, but what he does, he affects the position, because he has a strong effect on Joe, has a strong effect on the young guys with Dwayne and Tate, has a strong effect on me,” Wilson said. “So he’s got some great leadership skills. Haven’t met his family, but he’s a blessed kid and I’m blessed to have a chance to coach him.” As for those who don’t think Barrett is OSU’s best option at quarterback, the Texan said he hears the noise, but accepts it as the nature of his position. “My whole heart is into this.

This is all that I do. I’m here to play football,” Barrett said. “I’m not the new and latest thing anymore, I’ve been here for a minute. But also, I’m still trying to enhance and get myself better in order for us to be where we want to be and I think that’s all I can do.”

ter with a 10-2 major decision. In the quarterfinals, Jordan faced off against Iowa’s Brandon Sorensen. Jordan lost to Sorensen in their regular season matchup, but notched a win at the Big Ten championships. Jordan lost, this time 3-0. In the consolation bracket, Jordan beat Lehigh’s No. 10 Laike Gardner 9-6, getting a technical fall over South Dakota State’s Alex Kocer and a major decision over Northern Illinois’ Max Thomsen. In the consolation finals, Jordan faced Sorensen yet again, and was held scoreless for the second time, losing 4-0. 165 pounds OSU redshirt sophomore Cody Burcher entered the tournament as an at-large qualifier and unseeded, and seemed outmatched by the competition. Burcher was held scoreless by Arizona State’s No. 7 Anthony Valencia in the first round, losing 11-0. In the consolation bracket, Burcher fared a little better, but still lost his first matchup 2-1 to Ohio University’s Yoanse Mejias. 174 pounds Redshirt junior Bo Jordan came into the tournament as a Big Ten champion for the first time, and carried a No. 3 seed along with only one loss on the season. Jordan earned a 10-1 major decision over Harvard’s Josef Johnson in the first round and a 10-4 decision over Iowa State’s No. 14 Lelund Weatherspoon in the second. In the quarterfinals, he continued marching along, beating Iowa’s No. 11 Alex Meyer with a 4-3 decision. In the semifinals, Jordan faced off against Cornell’s Brian Realbuto, who handed Jordan his only loss of the season. Jordan fought from behind for most of the match, but employed an acrobatic takedown in the last 20 seconds that also saw him pick up near-fall points to secure a 11-7 victory.


OSU junior heavyweight Kyle Snyder has his hand raised after defeating Wisconsin’s Connor Medbery in the 285-pound finals at the 2017 NCAA tournament in St. Louis. Snyder won 6-3, while the Buckeyes placed second as a team. In a Big Ten championship rematch, Jordan and Penn State’s Mark Hall faced off for the national title at 174. Jordan won the Big Ten bout, but Hall was able to win, 5-2. 184 pounds Hopes were high for No. 6 seed Myles Martin at the 2017 NCAA tournament, after winning a national championship as a true freshman in 2016, becoming the first Buckeye to ever do so. Looking impressive in his first matchup, he was two points away from a technical fall over Bucknell’s Garrett Hoffman. Martin’s run was spoiled by Illinois’ No. 11 Emery Parker in the second round, losing 14-9. In the consolation bracket, Martin took down Penn’s Joe Heyob with a tech-fall before a 12-3 major decision of Edinboro’s No. 14 Dakota Geer. Next, Martin faced a fellow All-Ameri-

can in Northern Illinois’ Drew Foster, and was able to come out victorious after surviving a sudden victory period. Martin’s charge was stopped short by Iowa’s No. 3 Sammy Brooks. At the NCAA tournament, Brooks defeated Martin with a 6-2 decision to send Martin to the fifthplace match. There, Martin impressed once again, getting some much-needed team points over Oklahoma State’s No. 4 Nolan Boyd and winning with a 10-6 decision. 197 pounds Redshirt freshman No. 3 Kollin Moore, who recently won a Big Ten championship in his first year of competition, barrelled through the first two rounds of the tournament with a 16-6 major decision over North Carolina State’s Malik McDonald and a 16-4 major decision over Oregon State’s No. 14 Corey Griego.

In the quarterfinals, Moore faced a tougher challenge in Oklahoma State’s No. 6 Preston Weigel, but picked up a 13-5 major decision. In the semifinals, a rematch with Minnesota’s No. 2 Brett Pfarr, the Gophers avenged his loss at the Big Tens with a 13-9 decision over Moore. In the consolation bracket, Moore pinned Virginia Tech’s No. 4 Jared Haught in the first period en route to a third-place finish as a freshman. He suffered only four losses on the season, all four against Pfarr and 197-pound champion J’Den Cox of Missouri. Heavyweight No. 1 seed and junior Kyle Snyder entered the tournament with sky-high expectations. A world and Olympic champion, he had an undefeated season for the Buckeyes. After getting through the first two rounds with technical falls, Snyder sustained a rib injury against Colorado’s No. 16 Garrett Ryan. In the third match, Snyder looked dominant for the first two periods, but his injury began to show in the third, during which he failed to record a point and was ridden out by Minnesota’s No. 8 Michael Kroells, but still won 13-7. That would be the last time the injury seemed to bother Snyder. In the semifinals, Snyder rolled over Duke’s No. 4 Jacob Kasper 19-6 and advanced to face Wisconsin’s No. 2 Connor Medbery in the NCAA Finals. Yet another Big Ten championships rematch, and this one went in favor of the Buckeyes. Snyder tallied two takedowns en route to a 6-3 win over Medbery and his second consecutive national championship at 285 pounds.


Following an excellent first half of the season, the Buckeyes suffered losses to Michigan and Michigan State during their final two home series, leaving Rohlik worried his team would be “on the fence” of postseason play. A road sweep of Wisconsin the final weekend before the Big Ten tournament, however, was a turning point for the Scarlet and Gray, Rohlik said, and his team felt its body of work and resume would be enough to secure the at-large bid entering Detroit and the conference tournament as the No. 3 seed. But if Wisconsin won the Big Ten tournament against Penn State, the Buckeyes likely would have been left out of the tournament field. The team watched the grueling double overtime game to the final goal that put Penn State over the top and knocked Wisconsin out of contention. This emotional rollercoaster is somewhat familiar to the seven seniors on the Scarlet and Gray roster. Four years ago during their

freshman season, OSU held a two-goal lead over Wisconsin with less than seven minutes to play in the conference tournament championship. After two Badger goals less than a minute apart in regulation, and one in overtime, OSU’s automatic bid slipped through their fingers. Now four years later, Schilkey and the Buckeyes have broken a barrier the program failed to surpass in almost a decade. “We were so close freshman year, you know, five minutes away from getting that automatic bid,” Schilkey said. “But we’ve worked hard to get back to this spot, and we’re excited to be here.” Additionally, Schilkey said just making the 16-team bracket is great, but added that the Buckeyes have their sights set on a much larger prize. “It’s not just about getting here, it’s about making some noise too,” Schilkey said. “We set goals to be a national champion at the beginning of the year, and this is just another step in the right direction.”

OSU junior heavyweight Kyle Snyder lifts Wisconsin’s Connor Medbery before slamming him to the mat for a takedown in the heavyweight finals of the 2017 NCAA Division I Wrestling Tournament in St. Louis, Missouri. OSU placed second, behind Penn State. TJ NEER Lantern reporter ST. LOUIS — Ohio State finished second at the 2017 Division I NCAA Wrestling Championships and sent a total of nine wrestlers to the event. Five of those went on to be named All-Americans, four placed in the top three of their weight classes, and one won a national championship. 125 pounds OSU’s redshirt freshman Jose Rodriguez went into the tournament unseeded and lost 13-4 in the first round of the championship bracket to American University’s No. 11 Josh Terao. Rodriguez was able to get a single victory over Ohio’s Christian Moody, but was later pinned by Nebraska’s No. 5 Tim Lambert.

133 pounds Redshirt junior Nathan Tomasello entered the tournament with a perfect regular season record and a Big Ten championship. He beat Illinois’ No. 8 Zane Richards by a score of just 3-1 in the quarterfinals after getting major decision victories over his first two opponents. In the semifinals, it was a Big Ten championship rematch with Iowa’s No. 4 Cory Clark. Tomasello beat Clark at Big Tens 5-4 on a last-second escape, but Clark fought to a different outcome at the NCAA tournament with a 7-4 decision. In the consolation bracket, Tomasello took down Nebraska’s No. 7 Eric Montoya and Michigan’s No. 5 Stevan Micic in the finals to finish in third place for the second consecutive year.

141 pounds OSU freshman Luke Pletcher entered the tournament as a No. 12 seed and defeated Michigan’s Sal Profaci 8-5 in the first round, but lost to All-American Anthony Ashnault from Rutgers. In the consolation bracket, Pletcher was able to pick up another win over Iowa’s Christopher Carton, but Penn State’s Jimmy Gulibon upset him in his second consolation match. 149 pounds Redshirt sophomore Micah Jordan came into the tournament as a No. 4 seed and, as a recent Big Ten runner-up, looked dominant early. Jordan put together a technical fall over North Carolina’s Troy Heilmann, and then defeated Maryland’s No. 13 Alfred BannisWRESTLING CONTINUES ON 7

Ohio State redshirt senior quarterback J.T. Barrett had a choice to make at the end of last season. While trying to digest a 31-0 whomping at the hands of the eventual national champion Clemson Tigers, Barrett had to think about his college career and a possible future in the NFL. For him, one factor weighed more heavily in his mind than all others. “It was really hard for me to leave Ohio State when that was like the worst game of my entire life,” Barrett said. “We didn’t score any points. I’ve never been shut out as a starting quarterback in my life. That was part of it, and also too, with the NFL, the

impression of me wasn’t where I wanted it to be.” So to the like or dislike of Buckeye fans, Barrett is back under center for his final season with OSU, focusing on refining his skillset, which some believe has regressed since his 2014 campaign when he was national freshman of the year. The majority of the critics of the All-Big Ten quarterback has pointed to his passing game. In 2014, Barrett threw for 2,834 yards and 34 touchdowns, completing 64.7 of his passes. Now, it’s nearly impossible for someone to replicate that type of production, but to do that in his freshman year, it seemed like the sky was the limit for Barrett. However, since then, Barrett’s downfield inaccuracy has yielded far less impressive results: 2,555 yards and



OSU redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) runs into the end zone for a touchdown during the first overtime of the Buckeyes’ 30-27 win over Michigan on Nov. 26.

Following the Ohio State men’s hockey team’s loss to Wisconsin in the Big Ten tournament semifinals, the wait began. After a 21-11-6 season, the Buckeyes didn’t know if they had done enough to clinch the program’s first NCAA tournament bid since 2009. Sitting in the locker room following the loss, senior forward and captain Nick Schilkey said there was a strange vibe to the team because they were unsure whether their season was over. “Right after the game up there at (Joe Louis Arena), there was a lot of mixed emotions in the locker room,” said OSU coach Steve Rohlik. “I just said, ‘We’re still alive,’ and there’s a chance and we just need some good things to

happen. I just told the guys when we got back that this thing can still happen, and let’s plan on practicing Monday.” Gathered at the Schottenstein Center for the NCAA hockey tournament selection show on Sunday, OSU saw its name matched up with No. 2 Minnesota Duluth in the West region. Despite this year’s squad racking up the program’s first 20-win season in eight years, coach Steve Rohlik said the opportunity didn’t come from just this year’s success; it has been a work in progress. “This is for all the alumni, this is for everybody that’s put a brick in the wall here at Ohio State — and we’re fortunate enough that we’ve got a chance here in the big dance,” Rohlik said. This chance to play on the largest stage in collegiate hockey, however, almost didn’t happen. HOCKEY CONTINUES ON 7
