Residents of Morrill and Lincoln Towers were provided with heated, portable restrooms to use while water services were off in the residence halls Jan. 22.

A water main break Wednesday left four West Campus buildings without water services for more than five hours. A “slow water leak” was discovered in the south Lincoln parking lot at approximately 10 a.m. Wednesday, said Student Life spokesman Dave Isaacs. Maintenance crews identified the source of the leak as a break in a water main. They initially hoped to be able to fix the main without interrupting water service but determined at approximately 4:30 p.m. that it would be necessary to shut off the water to Lincoln Tower, Morrill Tower and the Drake Performance and Event Center, Isaacs said. Administration and Planning spokeswoman Lindsay Komlanc said Wednesday in an email water service to the Women’s Field House was also stopped. At 11 p.m., crews on the scene confirmed that the water services had been restored to all four buildings. As of 7 p.m., the cause of the water main break was undetermined, Isaacs said in an email. About 450 residents live in Lincoln, while more than 1,100 live in Morrill, Isaacs said. People can live on 20 floors of Morrill and nine floors in Lincoln, according to the University Housing website. Ohio State brought heated portable toilets and sinks to the scene and supplied hall desks with bottled water to Lincoln and Morrill residents. Isaacs advised students needing to shower go to the RPAC, roughly half a mile away, up until midnight. Temperatures fell as low as minus 2 degrees Wednesday, with a maximum temperature of 10 degrees. The forecast predicted temperatures of about 7 degrees Wednesday night, according to Weather Underground. Some students saw the issues as a major inconvenience before the water was restored. “I’ve had to stop drinking water so that I wouldn’t have to go to the bathroom,” said Samantha Saraceni, a first-year in exploration, before 9 p.m. “I’m going to wait until the morning so I don’t have to shower at the gym … because I don’t want to

take all my stuff there and walk all the way back in the freezing cold.” Madison Kessler, a first-year in dance, lives in Lincoln Tower and expressed dismay after hearing the news Wednesday afternoon. “I’m in so much shock right now. If I can’t shower or drink water, it’s a huge inconvenience,” she said. Candace Danby, a first-year in communication who lives in Morrill Tower, shared similar sentiments. “If you have to go to the bathroom, it’s really inconvenient because you have to go outside in the -4 degree windchill. And a lot of my roommates shower at night, so now they have to go to the RPAC,” she said. Others, though, weren’t so upset about the halted water flow. “I like it (the lack of running water) because this distilled water that they gave us is better than what’s flowing from the water fountain with all the carbon in it,” said Jason Wan, a first-year in finance. Recently, the Columbus water has smelled and tasted differently than usual. The odor is a result of algal blooms in Columbus’ Hoover Reservoir. In order to treat the water’s taste and odor, the city has been treating the water with five times the usual amount of carbon normally used, according to the Department of Public Utilities website. Water-related issues also affected Nosker House Wednesday morning. A maintenance worker on the scene, who declined to be named, said he believed slow water flow caused a pipe to freeze and subsequently burst. Isaacs was unable to provide further information about the Nosker House incident Wednesday evening and said it still had not been determined whether the water main break south of Lincoln Tower was also the result of cold weather. Two weeks ago, Ohio State called off classes Jan. 6 and 7 because of extreme weather conditions as temperatures fell to minus 7, according to Weather Underground. There were several water-related issues around campus after the temperatures fell that week, including a water main break near Macquigg Laboratory, leading to some roads covered with ice being closed, and a burst pipe in Pomerene Hall.

Construction on Norwich Flats continues Jan. 22. The new apartment complex being constructed at 250 W. Norwich Ave. is set to open in July.

Aly Gordon Lantern reporter gordon.847@osu.edu Ohio State students looking to up their standards for housing will soon have a new option to consider. Located just northeast of Varsity Club on West Norwich Avenue, Norwich Flats is one of several off-campus housing complexes that are currently under construction. The fully furnished complex is slated to boast a myriad of amenities, including a fitness center, computer lab, covered parking, a group study room and a lounge area. Construction on the Edwards Communities project, which began in fall 2013, is still underway and is set to conclude in July 2014. The complex is set to open for residents in August, with one- to four-person rooms ranging from $1050 to $775 per month per person, respectively, said Nate Rivard, the regional vice president of Edwards Communities. Student interest so far has been high, Rivard said. “It’s been incredible. Lots of OSU students have contacted us via email, phone, Facebook,” Rivard said. “The location is perfect for business students, engineers and architects.”

  More than 6,000 international students came to Ohio State to study this past fall, but the countries they came from aren’t all evenly represented. Chinese students represented nearly 60 percent of the international student population, as there were 3,606 Chinese undergraduate, graduate and professional students enrolled at OSU for Fall Semester 2013, up about 4.9 percent from 2012 figures, according to the student enrollment report. Lu Yin, a second-year in business and Chinese international student, said he came to the U.S. for better opportunities for education. “The universities here in the U.S. are really good, both in teachers and academic equipment,” Yin said. “Almost 30 percent of my friends choose to go abroad for study.” OSU isn’t the only American university where Chinese students comprise a majority of the international student population — China was the “leading place of origin” for those coming to the U.S. to study in the 2012-13 academic year, according to the Institute of International Education Open Doors 2013 Report. The total number of Chinese students studying in the U.S. was also up 21.4 percent from the previous year, according to the report. Zhihui Chu, a fourth-year in strategic communication, said her parents and grandparents had always planned for her to study abroad. “I made it happen earlier than when they expected by transferring (from a school in China),” Chu, who transferred her second year, said. “I simply wanted to change an environment and push myself a little bit. I plan on going to grad school in the states after my undergrad program.” Jingan Zhou, a third-year in marketing, said he transferred to the U.S. from China during his sophomore year of college in March 2012. He said he decided to leave his home country to study abroad because he liked having the opportunity to choose whatever major he wanted to pursue as a student. “I realized that my passion was not in the finance area. So I chose to do marketing, and I am having a minor of design,” Zhou said. “Plus, the business program at (the) Fisher (College of Business) is of very high quality and reputation, which is another reason that I came to Ohio State, rather than other colleges.” Zhou said most of his friends from China have come to the U.S. to pursue their studies as well.

“Most of my friends feel the same way, and a lot of them are willing to have more engagement with the domestic student(s), the community and the city of Columbus,” Zhou said. Some of the most popular majors among international students are engineering, physics and business management, according to USA TODAY. Lindsey Thaler, the director of undergraduate studies for OSU’s Department of Physics, said the students she advises who are from China face many of the same struggles as students from the U.S. “The Chinese students I meet with have the same academic questions and problems as

domestic students,” Thaler said. “Perhaps the one thing that does stand out is that international students sometimes say that being away from their families is difficult and can affect their academic performance.” India, the Republic of Korea and Taiwan followed after China in overall enrollment at OSU for Fall Semester 2013, totaling 1,225 students between the three of them, according to the student enrollment report. Zhou said he is mostly just happy to be at OSU. “I love being involved with (one of) the biggest campus(es) in the nation, and I am proud to say I am a Buckeye now,” Zhou said.

campus Dietitian helps students ‘feel comfortable’ at OSU KARLIE FRANK Lantern reporter frank.359@osu.edu With roughly 26,000 meals served each day at more than 25 different dining locations on Ohio State’s campus, there is no shortage of dietary needs to be met and nutritional information to be monitored. That task falls to one OSU employee. Gina Casagrande is a registered dietitian and the assistant director of nutrition and health for OSU Dining Services. “The most important part of my job is making sure students who have specific dietary needs learn how to eat safely and well on campus,” Casagrande said. “It’s making those people feel comfortable in their new home.” Zia Ahmed, senior director of Dining Services, made the decision that his team needed a director of nutrition on staff — a position that did not exist before Casagrande’s hire in August. “One of her primary responsibilities is to help students as they reach out to her with dietary needs. It doesn’t necessarily have to be very special, students can just ask, ‘Hey, I’m trying to lose weight, can you provide guidance?’” Ahmed said. An Upper Arlington native, Casagrande earned her bachelor’s of science in dietetics from Miami University and her master’s of science in human nutrition from Ohio State. To address students’ specific needs, she takes a comprehensive look at the student’s schedule, eating habits and all the products offered by OSU Dining Services. “I’ll ask them where (at what dining halls) they eat, go to the menu and get a list together. I look at the C-Store, too, to see if they can get some snacks for the dorm room,” Casagrande said. “Sometimes we keep special food for them. There was one freshman this year who had allergies to wheat, gluten, dairy and eggs, and he wanted dessert options. We bought some special cookies and kept them in Traditions for him.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the foods responsible for 90 percent of serious allergic reactions are milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, wheat, soy, peanuts and tree nuts. Jordan Jennewine, OSU graduate student in the medical dietetics coordinated doctorate program, is interning with Casagrande and said Casagrande accommodates a variety of different students. “She is willing to order stuff just for students that will fit their needs … if she gets different products in, she makes sure to let the students know,” Jennewine said.

Norwich from 1A Rivard was unable to provide the cost of the project. Like Norwich Flats, the View on High is another close-to-campus housing project currently under construction. Tom Heilman, owner of Hometeam Properties Management — the company behind The View on High — said these large complexes are a reflection of OSU’s continual growth: there is an increased need for off-campus housing. “We (Hometeam Properties) welcome Norwich Flats,” Heilman said. “The more quality housing, the better, the higher the bar is set … (larger complexes) just work. They provide value by building up, by providing a certain seamlessness. More and more students are willing to pay for this quality.” Josh Delozier, a second-year in electrical engineering and a current resident on Norwich, said he agrees that the additional cost of the complexes

Gina Casagrande is a registered dietitian and the assistant director of nutrition and health for OSU Dining Services. She was hired in August and is the first to hold the position. Formerly, Casagrande worked as a supermarket dietitian and wellness coach for Giant Eagle Market District at Kingsdale Center in Upper Arlington, where she provided personal dietary consultations to adults and adolescents. Casagrande said she applied for the assistant director position at OSU for a few reasons. “My favorite age group has always been college students,” Casagrande said. “I was ready for a change. I knew the dietitian here before and she had a lot of great things to say about it.” Besides personal consultations, Casagrande’s most time-consuming project so far has been reviewing the recipes and nutritional information for all food served on campus listed on the OSU dining website. “When I came here, we deleted all of the net nutrition (online nutrition guides) because they wanted to make sure a third eye saw it before we put it up. I review all the recipes and make sure they’re accurate, specifically when it comes to allergens,” Casagrande said.

could be justified by their amenities. He added that the people-oriented nature of both the Flats and the View on High would be an added bonus. “When I lived in a dorm, it was fun to always have people around,” Delozier said. “When you move out, you kind of miss that.” Tony Mollica, the general manager of the Varsity Club, said he looks upon the new complex favorably. “Each new restaurant and building brings in more people,” Mollica said. “We’ve had things built up around us for years … the more students in the area, the better business will be.” Heilman said overall, building new housing is about giving students options. “Some people are concerned about pricing, we’re concerned about value,” he said. “(They) pay more for the safety, the amenities, the location … but you can’t make everyone happy.”

The project is about 70 percent finished, she said. Some of her colleagues said it was Casagrande’s dedication and ability to connect with people that landed her the position. “One of the reasons we hired her is because of her passion for working with students. She very much enjoys the higher education environment,” Ahmed said. Lesa Holford, corporate executive chef and Casagrande’s supervisor, meets with the new dietitian weekly to discuss pending projects. “I wanted a dietitian with the ability to connect with consumers, and that’s what she did at Giant Eagle,” Holford said. For now, Casagrande said she’s excited about where her current position could take her. “Every year, more students have special dietary needs. My job is only going to expand.”

A box of chemical waste caught fire at the Bulk Chemical Warehouse Friday at about noon. The small fire started when movers were disposing of waste from the building, located at 2600 Kenny Road. A box, brought up from the basement of Dreese Laboratory two days prior to the incident, began smoking while it was being moved and then caught fire. A staff member was able to extinguish the fire and no one was injured. The box was filled with multiple black garbage bags containing chemical waste, according to a University Police report. Two individuals suspected to be under the influence of alcohol were arrested at the Schottenstein Center Thursday night during a Luke Bryan concert. A 24-year-old woman was arrested for disorderly conduct at the Schottenstein Center Thursday at about 8 p.m. Later the same night, a 24-year-old man was also arrested for disorderly conduct. Following the concert, four workers sustained minor injuries after part of the stage collapsed. According to a Schottenstein Center employee who wished to remain anonymous because of his employment, the incident occurred when a forklift carrying large video equipment hit the stage and caused multiple boards to collapse. From there, a domino effect took place as employees fell into the stage and sound equipment fell on those employees. There were 14 total thefts reported on Ohio State’s campus this week from Jan 15. to Wednesday. In one incident, a 25-year-old homeless man was arrested for theft after attempting to steal a Droid phone valued at $200 from an individual at the Wexner Medical Center emergency department Friday at about 4:15 a.m. The phone was recovered and returned to the owner.

Ice skaters brave cold weather   Ohio State students were given the opportunity to ice skate where they would normally walk this week. The Office of Student Life’s Recreational Sports turned the volleyball and basketball courts west of the RPAC into an ice rink Tuesday evening.   “As part of the event, we also added milk jug curling, so students can kind of assimilate what’s about to happen in the Olympics,” said Bonnie Hainline, campus programs coordinator for Recreational Sports.   Temperatures fell as low as 6 degrees Tuesday, according to the Weather Channel, but that didn’t keep students from participating, Hainline said.   “We weren’t sure what to expect when the temperatures dropped,” she said.

OSU still confident despite 4-game skid eric Seger Sports editor seger.25@osu.edu First, it was 15 straight wins and a No. 3 ranking. Now, it’s four straight losses, an increased risk of dropping out of the top 25 and a season spiraling out of control. The Ohio State men’s basketball team has had an odd feeling about it lately. “It’s definitely been different. No one in that locker room has ever lost like this,” junior forward Sam Thompson said. “No one has ever lost four in a row and we know that it’s unacceptable for our program to lose four basketball games in a row.” The current skid is the first time OSU has lost four straight games since February 2009. In those four losses — to Michigan State, Iowa, Minnesota and Monday at Nebraska — the Buckeyes (15-4, 2-4) have struggled shooting the ball, making just 40.4 percent of their shots from the field. Points in the paint have been an issue as well, particularly in the last three games, as OSU has given up 120 points down low. Junior centers Amir Williams and Trey McDonald have struggled, causing OSU coach Thad Matta to play with a smaller lineup down the stretch late in games to give his team a chance. Williams has started all 19 games this season for OSU — along with senior guards Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr., junior guard Shannon Scott and junior forward LaQuinton Ross — but his recent play begs a question: Should there be a change to the starting five?

OSU lost, 84-74. “I haven’t even thought in terms of that, from what we did (Tuesday) to what we’re getting to go out and do here in practice. We’re going to compete and get after it and I want to see who’s standing at the end of the day, but I’ve had a lot of thoughts go through my mind. But the starting lineup — I haven’t even thought about that one,” Matta said after a brief pause. “We’ve started games well. Last couple, we’ve got off to decent starts. I’ve been pretty pleased with those, but we gotta get the middle and the end corrected.” No matter who starts or finishes the games, though, the end result has not been what OSU wants, as turnovers,

missed shots and poor defensive executions have led to almost three weeks without a victory. “I don’t know if I’d call it a lack of confidence. I’d definitely say there is a different feel around than we had (19) days ago, but I wouldn’t call it a confidence issue,” Thompson said. “I would say there is a certain frustration level with the basketball team, just with losing. We’re not frustrated with each other, we’re not frustrated with the coaching staff, we’re just frustrated with ourselves that we aren’t coming out and doing the things we know we’re capable of doing.” Scott agreed with Thompson, and said the team is going to be “fine”

once it gets back to what it needs to do. “We know what we have to do now, we know what we’re capable of doing as a team but until we take action and fix what we’ve been doing lately, we’re not going to be a successful basketball team,” Scott said. “Once we all get our heads straight and stick together, we’re going to be fine.” The team standing in the way of OSU putting a halt to its four-game skid is Illinois (13-6, 2-4), also a team that has lost four in a row. With both squads reeling, the intensity is likely to be high Thursday. “We both need wins. Illinois, right now, is in the same position as us, having lost four straight,” Thompson said. “I can’t exactly speak on how they feel, but we assume they feel the same way that we feel in that this is a one-game season.” “(It’s) another Big Ten game. Because I think you would look and say everyone in this league is, in one way or another, desperate,” Matta said. “You can’t take anything for granted. You gotta go out and play.” As OSU looks to get back on track, Thompson said it is using the four straight losses as motivation. “We’re not feeling sorry for ourselves. We’re not going to get down on ourselves. We’re a tougher basketball team than that,” Thompson said. “We’re a veteran-led basketball team and we’re going to do everything we can to make sure that we come out and play to the best of our abilities on Thursday.” Tipoff at the Schottenstein Center is set for 7 p.m.

Then-sophomore pitcher and first baseman Josh Desze (33) hits the ball during a game against Northwestern May 6, 2012, at Bill Davis Stadium. OSU won, 4-1.

Being a team that has to stay home while the College World Series plays out in Omaha, Neb., is always tough. Being a team that just barely missed the cut to play in the tournament, though, leaves a far worse taste in the mouth. The Ohio State baseball team is having to deal with that bad taste, leftover from last season, and is looking to focus on being able to punch its ticket to the postseason in 2014. Perhaps the person with the most to prove, however, is one who did not see a single minute of action last year. That is the case for redshirt-junior Josh Dezse, who missed all of last season with a stress reaction in his back. The Powell, Ohio, native always attended OSU baseball games while

growing up, and said it was his dream to play for the Buckeyes. After a standout high school career, the dream became a reality and Dezse came to Columbus. His freshman campaign saw him lead the team in batting average, RBIs, slugging percentage and on-base percentage on his way to earning the Big Ten Freshman of the Year award. Even though his offensive numbers dipped a bit during his sophomore year, Dezse saw his ERA drop almost three points and allowed 14 fewer runs in one more inning of work. It was after that second season when he realized there was a problem, though. After playing for a month in Massachusetts for the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod Baseball League, his back began to ache during batting practice. He decided to shut himself down and come back to Ohio, thinking it was nothing serious. “Maybe a pulled muscle or

‘Small ball’ could be answer for Buckeyes daniel rogers Asst. sports editor rogers.746@osu.edu As the Ohio State men’s basketball team enters the heart of Big Ten play, the Buckeyes find themselves on a slippery slope. Seemingly unable to execute on offense, turning the ball over with regularity and in the midst of a four-game losing streak, OSU (15-4, 2-4) has some questions to answer. Perhaps the biggest of all of these is how the offense can be fixed. During OSU’s 15 game winning streak to start the season, the Buckeyes put up more than 70 points in 11 of their first 15 games. But in their four-game losing streak, the Buckeyes have only reached that mark one time — during an 84-74 loss against Iowa Jan. 12 — and fans at the Schottenstein are starting to miss their free fries as part of a promotion through McDonald’s. Schottenstein Center ushers hand out coupons after a Buckeye win when the team tallies at least 70 points. “It’s like there’s a black cloud over us right now,” senior guard Aaron Craft said after OSU’s 68-62 loss to Nebraska. “We have to find a way to get it off. We’re running out of time. Nothing’s guaranteed. We’ve just got to do it.” The way it seems OSU coach Thad Matta has decided to help the anemic offense is playing what is known as “small ball.” “Small ball,” is the use of a shorter group of players than the traditional basketball lineup. Typically, this involves a center or power forward being swapped out for another guard or small forward who can shoot the ball well. In terms of OSU, this has meant less playing time for

Senior guard Aaron Craft (4) drives to the basket during a game Iowa Jan. 12 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU lost, 84-74. junior centers Amir Williams and Trey McDonald, and an increase for junior forward Sam Thompson. Since playing 35 minutes in a 72-68 loss to Michigan State, Williams hasn’t played more than 22 minutes in a game, while Thompson, coming off the bench, has played no fewer than 26. “It’s a lineup that’s been effective for us in the past couple of seasons. We went to it last year toward the

end of the year when we were on our win streak, and it worked out well for us,” Thompson said Wednesday. “We’ve gone to it sometimes early on this season and it’s been successful for us. Again, I think it’s just a matter of the opponent, who we’re playing, what they like to do and who is playing well that game.” Before the OSU loss to Minnesota, Thompson said despite the success with “small ball,” the team has suffered some major drawbacks. “We tried to go the ‘small ball’ lineup versus Michigan State and we couldn’t rebound,” Thompson said. “We didn’t have some success we had in the past, so we went back to Amir (Williams) and he really produced for us in that lineup.” Although “small ball” does allow for more shooters and ball handlers to play together, the downside is a lack of a post presence, making it easier for opposing teams to dominate inside. In their last three games, in which Matta has started to switch the lineups, the Buckeyes have been outscored in the paint by 13.3 points per game, letting each team score at least 38. Matta said after the game against Nebraska, things weren’t going well for OSU inside so he wanted to try and provide more outside shooting to try and salvage a win. “(Nebraska) did a good job of putting their heads down and driving the basketball, and they finished well. They made a couple step-backs, some floaters,” Matta said. “It was that type of night. We open up on a broken play at the jump and don’t finish at the rim. Those are the ones. We got the ball at the rim and they didn’t go in for us. That’s why we went with that (smaller) lineup, just trying to catch some juice.” Next up, the Buckeyes are scheduled to take on Illinois, with tipoff set for Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center.

sports Women’s basketball set for battle with archrival Michigan JAMES GREGA JR. Lantern reporter grega.9@osu.edu The Ohio State women’s basketball team (12-9, 2-3) is currently on a two-game losing streak, but it has a chance to gain ground in the conference standings by notching a win against Big Ten rival Michigan (13-5, 4-1) Thursday. The Buckeyes are currently tied for seventh in the Big Ten with Indiana, Northwestern and Wisconsin, while the Wolverines are tied for first place with Penn State and in-state rival Michigan State. In the two teams’ first meeting this season, Michigan won against OSU, 64-49, in Columbus Jan. 5, in a game where offense was hard to come by. The Buckeyes only managed 13 first-half points, a performance that coach Kevin McGuff described as “ugly.” “We did not play well offensively,” McGuff said. “They had a good defensive game plan and we did not react well.” The Buckeyes shot just 31.3 percent from the field in the Michigan loss but showed improvement in that category during Sunday’s loss to Iowa, in which they shot 49.2 percent. Despite a better shooting performance against the Hawkeyes, the feeling in the locker room was still one of disappointment, sophomore guard Cait Craft said. “Lately, the games that we keep coming up short in … it is like we are not even there,” Craft said, referring to the team’s tendency

to start slow. “To keep coming back and coming up just a little bit short is disappointing for everybody.” Craft’s comments pertained to the Iowa game in particular, since the Buckeyes dug themselves a 17-point hole and spent the entire game trying to catch up, ultimately losing 81-74. Although the team has been getting off to slow starts because of poor shooting, redshirt-junior guard Amy Scullion said she and her teammates need to keep moving forward and not dwell on losses. “You cannot focus on the past and what we have done wrong,” Scullion said. “Coach (McGuff) put in a new offense for us … (and) moving forward, we are going to try to get a lot more dribble penetration.” OSU has seen success when it rebounds effectively and is 10-0 on the season when outrebounding opponents. Consequently, rebounding well against Michigan during Thursday night’s matchup looks to be a focal point for the team. “It is something that we are always conscience of,” McGuff said. “That will be a big deal for us this week.” While the Buckeyes struggled offensively in their first matchup against Michigan, their defense did hold the Wolverines to more than eight points below than their season average of 72.7 points per game. “By and large, that was not the end of the floor that was our biggest issue,” McGuff said of his team’s defense in the earlier loss to Michigan. “We need to find a way to generate more offense.” The Buckeyes are set to tip off at 7 p.m. Thursday against Michigan in Ann Arbor, Mich.

OPINION

Time to start supporting CBJ after 7-game win streak RYAN COOPER Lantern reporter cooper.487@osu.edu

Courtesy of MCT

The Columbus Blue Jackets celebrate a goal during a game against the Los Angeles Kings Jan. 21 at Nationwide Arena. The Blue Jackets won, 5-3.

While Ohio State’s men’s basketball team seems to have forgotten how to win games, Columbus’ professional hockey team has decided to stop losing. The Blue Jackets are the NHL’s hottest team, having tallied seven straight victories after a 5-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings in Columbus Tuesday night. They have risen from being a team that looked to be on its way to another underwhelming season following a 5-10-0 start all the way to becoming one that is currently in contention to make the playoffs after this franchise-best winning streak. It’s not completely luck, a beneficial schedule or even simply playing over their heads. They are doing it the old-fashioned way, using an excellent penalty kill, some of the best 5-on-5 offense in the NHL and fantastic goaltending to close out games. That goaltending comes courtesy of 2013 Vezina trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky, who has started six of the seven games on this winning streak. Bobrovsky got off to a mediocre start to the year by his standards, but since returning Jan. 6 from a groin injury to play against the New York Rangers — a game ending in the first of the seven wins comprising the streak — he has been a force in the crease.

Mad River Mountain

���� ����� ����� ������ �����

But it has been the offense that has truly been the Jackets’ strength in the new year. The continued offensive firepower of centers Ryan Johansen and Brandon Dubinsky is converging with the midseason resurgence of defenseman Jack Johnson at just the right time. Johnson, whose disappointing first few months to the season likely led to his being excluded from the United States’ Olympic roster, has been playing with a chip on his shoulder since the Sochi selections were announced. In addition to notching five points in his last five games, Johnson has also been playing improved defense in front of Bobrovsky. The main cog on offense, however, has been right wing Nathan Horton. Horton, who sat out the three months of the season with a shoulder injury, has been everything coach Todd Richards could have hoped for when he was signed to a seven-year On $37.1 million COTA Bus Line contract in July. Since making his Jackets debut Jan. 2, German the team Near Villag is 8-1-0, with much of the credit going to the point production and leadership Horton brings.“Eph. 2:5 ...it is by grace you have This dominant Jackets run has beenbeen a pleasant surprise.

sports opinion

Past success makes Tressel perfect fit for NFL coaching scene kane anderson Lantern reporter anderson.1995@osu.edu I know the name Jim Tressel still carries with it a significant amount of controversy around these parts. Almost three years ago, he broke the hearts of Buckeyes everywhere, stepping down as head coach of Ohio State’s football team when it was revealed that he knew about Tattoo-gate. Following his departure, he was hired by the Indianapolis Colts as a replay-review consultant. That gig only lasted for one year during the 2011-12 NFL season. He has since been out of coaching and working at the University of Akron in a non-athletic role. The coaching carousel that ensued after this past NFL regular season, though, has brought about many rumors surrounding Tressel and the various coaching vacancies throughout the league. Twitter erupted Jan. 3 — ironically the same day OSU was set to play Clemson in the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl — proclaiming that Tressel was in line for an interview to become the head coach of the Cleveland Browns. In fact, Wikipedia went so far as to call him the next coach of the Browns Jan. 14. The rumors were quickly shot down, though. What seemed to have gotten lost in all this speculation, though, is that Tressel could be a valuable asset to any NFL team looking to fill a void. He has done tremendous work with quarterbacks, has head coaching experience and, most importantly, can win games.

Dezse from 4A something tweaked. Nothing too serious,” Dezse said, “In the fall, we tried to fire it back up again, but it just didn’t feel right.” After three months, and with the season right around the corner, he felt it was time to seek medical advice. “We sent my images to a board of spine directors throughout the country and (the diagnosis) came back that I had a nonunion L4 fracture.” Two of his vertebrae processes had cracked off and formed a gap between the two bones. To repair it in surgery, doctors shaved off a piece of his hip and fused it with the vertebrae in that gap. It was not until February 2013 that Dezse found out he would miss the entire upcoming season. After finding out, he and his coaches were crushed. “Most importantly, I was disappointed for him, entering his junior year, his draft year. There was a lot of excitement and hype for the year he was going to have,” OSU coach Greg Beals said. “I was disappointed he had to have that letdown.” All Dezse could do was watch and cheer on his teammates as they fought hard all season before coming up just short of making the College World Series. Once his rehabilitation began, he started working to get back to playing shape. Despite not having played since 2012, Dezse was recently named to the third team of Louisville Slugger’s preseason All-Americans. “That was a shock to me, to be honest. It humbled me a lot,” Dezse said. “That people still think highly of me, even missing a season and not even proving myself yet, puts a weight on my shoulder. It was nice though, people still recognizing after being out a year.” His teammates are strong believers in his return as well, naming him one of the team captains for the 2014 season.

The Detroit Lions is the most recent organization to be associated with rumors of potentially hiring Tressel. This time, however, the destination seems like much more of a real possibility. Last week, the Lions hired Jim Caldwell as their head coach. But Caldwell was the head coach of the Colts during Tressel’s time there, and the ties seem strong between the two. Joe Lombardi was brought on to be Caldwell’s offensive coordinator, but bringing on Tressel as quarterbacks coach could have a positive impact. This past season, the Lions’ offense was sporadic and very prone to turning the ball over. A staple of Tressel’s teams was discipline and taking care of the football. Lions President Tom Lewand, a University of Michigan graduate, has said he would have no problem adding Tressel to the staff if it would make his team better. He even said that he would tattoo a buckeye on his forehead if Tressel were to help them win. Looking back to his years at OSU, Tressel had a large part in the process of turning Troy Smith into a Heisman-winning quarterback and the mechanically challenged Terrelle Pryor into a two-time BCS bowl game-winner. Imagine what he could do with Matthew Stafford. I think a duo consisting of Tressel and Stafford would make beautiful music for years in Motown. No matter where he goes, I’m sure controversy will follow. Even though Tressel lied to cover up the violations his former players committed, at least he has served his penalty. It seems like Tressel going to the NFL is more of a ‘when’ than an ‘if’ at this point. Either way, I’m sure he will be successful in whatever venture he pursues.

Beals said the focus is getting Dezse back to where he was before the surgery. “We have to be smart about it and not push him too fast too soon,” Beals said. “He wants to be out there. He’s a competitor and an athlete. We can’t be moving him at too quick of a rate where we may cause ourselves a setback.” Even though he pitched his first two seasons, it is looking like designated hitter is where Dezse will start out this year. Because of the Buckeyes’ lack of experience in the bullpen, however, Dezse could make his way back to the mound to help his team. “We want to get Josh on the mound when he’s healthy,” assistant coach Mike Stafford said. “We want to get that pitch count up and possibly get him into a starting role.” Whatever role Dezse takes on the field, his presence is expected to be an enormous boost for a team looking to improve on what it did last year. “Our expectations this year are through the roof,” Dezse said. “We want to get to the National Tournament.” With the new season just around the corner, Dezse and his coaches have been able to look back and see the positives of him missing last season. “In the long run, though, I think he’s grown a lot,” Beals said. “I think he’s learned from that, and it’s been part of his maturation process.” Dezse added that he thinks the time off showed him a new appreciation for the game. “It was a good experience for me because it taught me that I really do love to play,” Dezse said. “Maybe it was a good thing, after all. I got everything fixed and feeling good. Now (I) just cross my fingers and hope everything goes well.”

Former OSU football coach Jim Tressel waves to fans during a game against Michigan Nov. 24, 2012, at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 26-21.

CBJ from 6A for a franchise that has yet to win a playoff game since their 2000 inaugural season to start dreaming big. If the playoffs began today, the Jackets would be the second of two Eastern Conference wild card teams and would have a firstround date with the Pittsburgh Penguins, against whom they are 0-4-0 this season. That is why the Jackets must now set their sights on capturing one of the top three spots in the Metropolitan Division, which are currently occupied by the Penguins, the Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers in that order. If they can take over one of those spots in the standings and secure a more favorable first round matchup, it is very possible that they could not only win their first playoff game but also emerge victorious from a series. As of Wednesday evening, the CBJ are just three points back of the Rangers and two behind the Flyers and are slated to play the latter at Nationwide Arena Thursday night. It is time for Columbus to start embracing the Jackets, the best sports team the city has going for it when football season is over. They currently rank 28th in average attendance, according to ESPN. While the fans at Nationwide Arena can be very loyal and passionate, nothing could top the atmosphere of a capacity soldout crowd cheering on their team in a huge game. The Jackets appear to be going places this season, and I implore you to “Join the Battle” for these last 33 games and enjoy the ride.

MFA exhibition displays student talent TESSA DITIRRO Lantern reporter ditirro.4@osu.edu One of Ohio State’s newest exhibitions is slated to incite conversation among university artists. The Department of Art is set to present the official opening reception for the master’s of fine arts exhibition, “In Conversation,” Thursday, which features 14 newarrivals to the MFA program at OSU. The event is called “In Conversation” because the artists have been in conversation with each other about their pieces and hope to spark meaningful conversations between OSU students, said Maria DiFranco, a MFA candidate in printmaking, in an email. DiFranco is set to showcase her work at the exhibition and is excited to share her art after a semester of in-depth work. “Once you are inside the exhibition, you will notice a variety of mediums represented, including a piece by Jessica Ann, MFA candidate from the art & technology area, that employs a video game experience modeled after a dream of hers. Other MFA candidates are exhibiting work that is a reflection of their research topics, ranging from the body, dimensionality, memory and the sensory experience, among others,” DiFranco said. DiFranco said the exhibition is fitting for student attendees interested in the arts. “Ohio State students with a passion for creativity or (who are) simply curious about art can attend the exhibition,” DiFranco said. Kelly McKenney, a fourth-year in political science, said she would be interested in attending the showing. “It’s a cool opportunity to see what the up-and-coming artists are doing at Ohio State,” McKenney said. Emily Kerns, a first-year in pre-business, said she would be interested in checking out the art as well. “I want to see my peers’ work and their vision of art here at Ohio State,” Kerns said. The opening reception is set for 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Hopkins Hall Gallery on the Oval. Nayeon Yang, an MFA candidate in sculpture is set to showcase a live performance at the Opening Reception as well, Difranco said. The opening reception also gives students and the public a chance to meet and greet with the artists and refreshments are set to be provided. Students can see the exhibit from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays until Feb. 18.

Admittance is free.

The Phillip Fox Band graces audiences with a blend of rock, Americana, bluegrass, country and as the band has dubbed, “country-fried rock ‘n’ roll.” Formed in 2011, the band released its first EP “Motor City Blood” in September 2012 and is currently in the process of compiling a complete studio album. Guitarist, lead vocalist and harmonica player Phillip Fox grew up in the Detroit area during the height of grunge music. Fox said he developed an affinity for country music when his family left the city for a life in the country. “(The town) was super hillbilly so growing up from 13 to 18 in an environment like that, it gets in your blood,” Fox said. When Fox was in high school, he met bass player Jonathan Kampfe through a mutual friend, but it would be several years before the two would officially form the Phillip Fox Band. Kampfe said he was always involved in the school orchestra and began taking private cello lessons in junior high. In seventh grade, Kampfe taught himself how to play the string bass and bass guitar. “We had a bass guitar lying around the house and I literally picked it up, listened to the radio and I would just play along,” Kampfe said. After high school, Fox and Kampfe lost touch for nine years until Kampfe reached out to Fox through Facebook. “I was doing the solo thing just under my own name around Columbus for a couple years and realized that I really wanted to do more of a full-band thing,” Fox said. Kampfe said that when learned Fox was active in Columbus’ music scene, he chose to return to Ohio from Williamsburg, Va., and form the Phillip Fox Band in 2011. Lead guitarist David Morckel was acquainted with the band’s former drummer and joined the band after a successful audition in 2012. Morckel’s interest in music was ignited when he received a guitar for his birthday at

age 12. He had taken piano lessons throughout his childhood, which made it easy for him to learn how to play guitar. “I took (guitar) lessons for a month and just learned some basic chords and taught everything to myself after that,” Morckel said. Drummer Austin Nill got involved in the school band in sixth grade and began refining his drumming skills. After graduating from Capital University in 2012, a friend told him there was a local band looking for a full-time drummer. Nill turned out to be the perfect fit. “I had a beer with (Fox) and then I had two rehearsals and then I played my first gig with them in September 2012,” Nill said. Since the band’s inception, Fox has been the sole songwriter. “I write the songs and then I bring them in a shell to the band and as a group, we work out the arrangement,” Fox said. While selecting which original songs to include on the upcoming record, Fox said the band enlisted the help of fans. “We picked the best 20 (original songs) and we did four shows back in the summer (of 2013) and had the audiences vote on the songs,” Fox said. The band plans to use 11 to 12 of these songs on its new album. In 2014, the band plans to continue broadening its horizons by performing at fairs in neighboring states like Indiana, West Virginia and Kentucky. The group performed 175 shows in 2013, which “were all in Ohio and Michigan and we’ve found that our style of music goes over really well at county fairs and festivals,” Fox said. The Phillip Fox Band is scheduled to perform 9 p.m. Friday at Hollywood Casino Columbus, located at 200 Georgesville Road.

Report: Absolutely zero students in Greek Life arrested this week

Rapper Soulja Boy was arrested in L.A. Jan. 22 for carrying a loaded gun.

Pretty Reckless lead singer Taylor Momsen posed nude for the cover art on the band’s new album.

Soulja Boy busted for toting gun, Momsen strips in pop news TESSA DITIRRO Lantern reporter ditirro.4@osu.edu This is part of a weekly series called “Pop Opinions” where The Lantern offers its take on the week’s pop culture news. From The Wanted announcing their split to the announcement of the “Kitten Bowl,” as usual, there was never a dull moment when it comes to entertainment news. According to E! News, Kimye, that is Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, might be using the Palace of Versailles for their wedding. Talk about a couple with an ego problem. Reportedly, the pair has been in Paris this week and had a private tour of the Palace. Much to Kimye’s chagrin, the Palace’s use is strictly controlled by the French government. Uh oh Yeezy, the French might not let you finish those wedding plans. Rightfully so, it would be quite overdone if the couple wed at Versailles. I wouldn’t put it past Kanye to dress up like a king. Hallmark Channel announced “The Kitten Bowl” to rival Animal Planet’s “Puppy Bowl,” premiering Feb. 2. The feisty felines will jump through hoops, chase lasers and compete in several other cat-like sports events. I would prefer to watch puppies compete, but in recent years, cats have become the center of cult classic memes and videos, so I think a lot of people will tune in. I will probably tune in out of curiosity and stick around if the cats end up playing better football than the Browns. The Wanted announced its split happening immediately

when they return from tour. The band formed in 2009 and found much success during its time on the American pop scene. I liked the band and am sad to see it go, but like the group’s hit single, I’m glad they came. Their management said the members all plan to pursue “individual endeavours.” Soulja Boy, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, was arrested early Wednesday in L.A. for carrying a loaded gun, according to TMZ. This isn’t Soulja’s first booking in jail — he was in trouble for marijuana and weapons in 2011. Unfortunately Soulja, I’m not sure jail will allow you to “Get Silly” very often. My childhood and favorite Christmas movie was a bit tainted when I saw the scandalous new picture of Taylor Momsen on her band The Pretty Reckless’ new album cover. The cover unveiled Jan. 21 shows Momsen’s completely naked back. She also took a topless photo for the album. The 20-year-old actress turned singer has come a long way from her angel faced days in “The Grinch” as Cindy Lou Who. Justin Bieber is once again out of control, which is no surprise to the public. The star might have jetted off to Cuba after police obtained a search warrant for his home in Calabasas, Calif. Bieber was linked to an egg throwing incident that happened Jan. 9. One of the Biebs’ latest Instagram uploads is a photo of him smoking a Cuban cigar. The photo is especially suspicious because those close to the Biebs have been encouraging him to go to rehab. His ego is bigger than ever, and he’s jet setting around the world with a rough crew. I think Bieber went down the wrong path after his split from Selena Gomez. Whatever his demons are, I hope the 19-year-old can get help, because at this rate, he’s headed for bigger problems.

The Ohio Stater STUDENT HOUSING

CORY FRAME Lantern reporter frame.28@osu.edu In yet another impressive week at Ohio State, reports claim not even one student in the Greek community has been arrested within the past seven days. The week marks the first time in OSU history such a feat has been accomplished. Greek Life makes many great strides with service and philanthropy but to have nobody legally detained is truly remarkable, said Devin Sacks, spokesman for the Office of Student Life, in an email. “Sororities and fraternities represent more than 10 percent of our population, so having a full week where not even a single student did something stupid or illegal is really impressive,” Sacks said. “I’m proud to say there wasn’t even an underage consumption this week. “We are very excited that no Greek student used a fake ID, got into a fight, trespassed, tried to break in anywhere or, heck, even littered for all I know,” he said. “We should definitely be proud of every single one of our Greek students after this week.” Coming off of the excitement of formal recruitment, many sororities are proud none of their sisters got into any trouble during such an important couple of weeks. Jackie Brocli, president of The Panhellenic Association, said she could not be more delighted to begin her friendship with her sisters not for the next four years, but for life. “We’ve been working hard Instagramming pictures of our new besties to everybody, so we haven’t even had time to do anything illegal even if we wanted to,” Brocli said. “Also, we’re girls so we

don’t do anything stupid anyway; it’s the boys you should worry about.” Tucker Youth, president of the Interfraternity Council, also spoke behalf on the men involved in the Greek community. “I am very impressed with the gentlemen we have here. Not only did anybody not get arrested for anything ridiculous like trying to steal a composite of a sorority. We also got along with each other immensely,” Youth said. “This week, we all acted like men our fathers would be proud of.” Not to be outdone by the Greek community, student-athletes also had a week to relish in. “Not one of our athletes received any violations either. Sometimes we have problems with underage consumption with our younger players, but this week everybody remained completely clean,” said an unnamed OSU spokesman. While select communities went above and beyond this past week by neither embarrassing themselves or their organizations, other students who remain unaffiliated, sometimes known as “GDIs,” did not fare so well. Reports claim 1,334 GDIs received underage consumption charges, 34 got assault charges, 19 got dumped and none received any bids. This is part of a series called “The Dim Bulb.” It is a weekly dose of satire, intended to poke fun at the university and affiliates. The contents of these articles are not factual and are not meant to be taken seriously.
