CAITLIN ESSIG Managing editor for content firstname.lastname@example.org The Off-Campus Housing Excellence Program at Ohio State has kicked off its home visits, where a representative from Neighborhood Services and Collaboration and the Columbus Division of Fire visit students’ homes to make sure the properties are up to par. This includes assessing the “safety, security and environmental sustainability of off-campus housing in the university area,” according to the program’s website. The program as a whole consists of three components: home visits, education and eventually, enhanced rental property information, which will be available online. The Off-Campus Housing Excellence Program was established by the Office of Student Life as a

Classes at Ohio State’s main campus are canceled Tuesday for the third time since Spring Semester started, but some students might still be called for attendance. OSU’s Emergency Management sent an alert Monday at about 4:45 p.m. announcing that classes were canceled for Tuesday, though “normal university operations (will) continue” and faculty and staff are expected to report to work as usual unless otherwise directed by their supervisor. Three weeks ago, OSU called off classes Jan. 6 and 7 because of extreme weather conditions as temperatures fell to roughly minus 7. Some OSU students said their professors were still planning on teaching class despite the cancellations the last they heard. “My teacher is having class. We’re having it over Google chats. She was like, ‘We’re not missing another day,’” said Andrew Dempsey, a third-year in biochemistry. “She hasn’t confirmed it but that was her plan … over the weekend.” The professor did not provide information about her class plans for Tuesday by Monday night. Other students said they’re glad to be given the day off, but plan to be productive in their extra time. “It’s really good the university’s doing it … By canceling, the university’s promoting well-being because it is dangerous to be outside,” said Leah Moody, a graduate student in public health. “I’m going to use it personally as a day to just relax, do yoga, catch up on my reading … I’ll be better prepared and probably succeed in my academics more because I won’t be outside freezing. I’ll still keep up with my readings for those classes and correspond with my professors via email.” Others also said they still have schoolwork to keep up with. “All my professors guessed that the day was going to be off, so they’re sending their assignments. So, I’m going to stay inside, stay warm and try to keep up,” said Kathryn Hess, a third-year in respiratory therapy. The Ohio Union, all libraries and all recreational

As of Monday night, the high was expected to be 6 degrees with a low of minus 7 degrees Tuesday in Columbus. In Newark, temperatures were set to hit a high of 7 degrees and a low of minus 9 Tuesday, and in Mansfield, the forecast predicted a high of 2 degrees

1st-generation students face Buckeye success hinging on Amir struggles coming to OSU DANIEL ROGERS Asst. sports editor email@example.com
First-generation students make up a significant population at OSU
Close to 20% of the freshman class is FIRST-GENERATION STUDENTS Source: reporting
HANNAH CHENETSKI Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Casey Ward hasn’t necessarily had an easy time on her path to a college degree. The third-year, who is studying psychology and women’s gender and sexuality studies, is a first-generation college student and Appalachian, and said financial aid in particular has been a “nightmare” for her. “College has always been my No. 1 goal,” Ward said. “I’ve never wanted to end up like my mother, working a mediocre job that pays just enough to support our family.” She said she did not get much help in high school from her teachers and advisers, and had to make her college decisions and discoveries on her own. “When I told my advisers I was applying to OSU, they told me that even as the class valedictorian, president and yearbook editor I would not get in, and even if I did, I wouldn’t be able to pay for it,” Ward said. First-generation students make up a significant population at Ohio State, with close to 20 percent of the freshman class coming in as first-generation students, said Laura Kraus, associate director for Economic Access at OSU and adviser of College Mentors for Kids. Economic Access works to help low income and first-generation students find a path to higher education. “We (at Economic Access) do a pre-enrollment conference on campus called the Buckeye Leadership Connection that targets first-generation students,” Kraus said in an email. The Buckeye Leadership Connection offers advice on networking, academic, personal, social and professional development skills, according to the First-Year Experience website. There are discussions held about living on campus, getting involved and what it means to be a first-generation student. Kraus said the number of students who participate varies from year to year.
Tuesday January 28, 2014
MADISON CURTIS / Design editor Kraus said first-generation students make up a diverse group that comes from multiple backgrounds with various identities. She said it is important that all first-generation students have a mentor to guide them. “First-generation students may not have the knowledge of university structure and language, and that can be alienating,” Kraus said. “We need to work on our campus to ensure that we explain things carefully to all students and to understand that not everyone comes in with the same college knowledge.” Despite that help, Ward said she’s still faced some struggles. “My mom doesn’t have the answers for my questions so I have to rely on the financial aid services at OSU, which leaves something to be desired,” she said. Autumn Wilson, a fourth-year in social work, has faced experiences similar to Ward’s. She said it was difficult figuring out the application process and finding scholarships, but comes from a family that values hard work, as her father owns his own business and her mother was in the Army. “I, luckily, had friends going through the same process, so I wasn’t too lost,” Wilson said. She said she never thought twice about going to college and it was always part of her plan, so she started working toward it at a fairly young age. “In order to help me with the college process I started working when I was 15 and have held one or more jobs at a time ever since,” Wilson said. Wilson said so far she has made the most of her time at OSU. “I definitely feel that I appreciate college with a whole new light after working very hard to get here and to be successful throughout,” Wilson said. “I truly appreciate every opportunity I am given.” Ward agreed. “Ohio State felt like home to me,” Ward said. “It felt like the generic college experience I’ve always wanted, but it turned out to be so much more than face value.”
When you come to Ohio State, the pressure is on to succeed. When you come to Ohio State as a 6-foot-11-inch McDonald’s All-American center, living up to expectations is nearly impossible. Career averages of 4.1 points per game and 3.9 rebounds per game — with his career highs this season at 8.9 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game — haven’t been what the OSU faithful were hoping for from junior center Amir Williams. But despite all this, Williams just might hold OSU’s season in his hands. Before OSU’s matchup against Illinois Jan. 23, coach Thad Matta said Williams’ success is something the team needs. “We need Amir to play well. We need Amir to play consistently on both ends. We gotta get him back to tracking the ball, we gotta get him back to blocking shots more activity around the rim in terms of challenging shots … When he’s played well, we’ve played well. I know that,” Matta said. In games where Williams has played 25 minutes or more, the Buckeyes are 10-1, with a missed layup by junior guard Shannon Scott against Michigan State the only thing keeping OSU from perfection in those 11 contests. As the then-No. 17-ranked Buckeyes (16-4, 3-4) snapped their four-game losing streak by taking down Illinois, 62-55, Williams played 31 minutes — third most on the team — and added seven points and nine rebounds. OSU was outrebounded in each of the final three games of the losing streak, during which Williams never played for more than 22 minutes. Although the Illini grabbed more rebounds against the Buckeyes as well, the gap was closed to just one — 32-31 — because of the junior’s time on the court. “Amir had ‘the look’ tonight. He was active. He was energetic. He was tracking the ball, blocking shots. I thought he did just a really, really good job. He was rebounding the ball, he got a couple out of his area,” Matta said after the Illinois game. “Those guys had a pretty good blow with what Illinois was attempting to do. His ball screen defense was really, really good. And finally we had support where we needed it and he started trusting guys that they were going to be there and I liked it.” Although the Detroit native has started every game this season, his 31 minutes against the Illini were the most since he played 35 during the Buckeyes’ 72-68 loss against Michigan State. That was also the last game where OSU outrebounded its opponents. Williams so far this season has an average plus/ minus rating of +11.1 per game. Plus/minus is the metric that tracks how much a team outscores its opponents by when a player is on the court: the higher the number, the better.

Thompson commented before OSU’s loss against Minnesota Jan. 16 that Williams’ size and rebounding ability were big against the Spartans earlier in the season. “We tried to go to the ‘small ball’ lineup versus Michigan State and we couldn’t rebound. We didn’t have some success we had in the past, so we went back to Amir and he really produced for us in that lineup,” Thompson said. During the losing streak, it wasn’t just the rebounding that killed the Buckeyes, but points in the paint as well. With Williams playing less and less, OSU was outscored 120-80 in the paint over the last three games of the losing streak, allowing no less than 38 points in a single game. Against Illinois with Williams back in, OSU held the Illini to 22 points in the paint, scoring 22 of their own. Fourteen of the 22 came in the second half for OSU, something senior guard Aaron Craft said was a big part of the win. “I think we got some easy buckets off turnovers,

Classes from 1A and a low of minus 11 for Tuesday. Wooster was predicted to experience a high of 4 degrees and a low of minus 10, according to the Weather Channel. Other Columbus colleges were closed or delayed for Tuesday because of the weather as well. Columbus State Community College is set to open at 11 a.m. Tuesday, and Capital University’s Bexley and Law campuses are set to be closed all day Tuesday. Otterbein University canceled Tuesday morning
classes, but offices are set to open at 11 a.m., with classes set to resume at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday is roughly the 11th time OSU has closed since 1978. OSU Administration and Planning spokeswoman Lindsay Komlanc said most recently, evening classes were canceled in February 2011 because of snow. The most recent cancellation in January before this year was in 2009, which was because of snow, Komlanc said. University spokesman Gary Lewis said in an email Monday evening university officials “will continue to monitor the weather over the course of

response to “landlord requests for increased collaboration with the university, and parent and student requests for additional information about off-campus housing and off-campus living,” said Neighborhood Services and Collaboration program coordinator Alex Sanchez. Sanchez said two home visits, one requested by the landlord and one requested by a student, have taken place as of Sunday. A number of landlords have signed up to participate in the program, he said, and more than 1,000 individual properties are in line to be inspected in 2014. “We’re not at max capacity but we’re getting close, which is a good thing,” he said. “And that’s just from landlords. We plan to fit in all student home visits in that time (2014) too. We should have plenty of resources and time available to do both student and landlord home visits.” Sanchez said each home visit takes about 20 minutes, and he plans to fit in as many visits as possible. He said it is difficult to define an exact maximum capacity possible because he hopes to get more people from OSU Off-Campus involved in making the visits. Currently, all visits are conducted by Sanchez and a representative from Columbus Fire. To complete the 1,000 visits scheduled to finish off 2014, roughly three visits would need to take place each day with no days off. “The most important thing is that now that we’re up and going is to let the students know they can be proactive and request the home visits,” Sanchez said. Property owner Mary Ann Bassitt talked to her tenants and made changes in her properties before Sanchez and his team made their first visit to inspect the north off-campus duplex she and her husband own. She said in order to be prepared for the visit, she was in communication with Sanchez prior to the home visit as to what it would take for the property to be up to standards. “We went into the properties, looked over the properties and made changes based on what Alex and his staff recommended, as well as the fire department,” Bassitt said. She said she and her husband, who co-own the property, added fire extinguishers on every floor, added carbon monoxide detectors, changed light bulbs and put escape ladders on the second and third stories. Sanchez said beyond securing safe living environments for students, the program’s goal is to increase interaction between students and their landlords. “Not only are we starting the conversation with these students but also the landlords being proactive and starting that conversation with their residents,” Sanchez said. “So it works from both sides. And that’s the whole point of the program, is to improve the quality of off-campus life. Whether it’s us doing the home visits or the landlords doing something they wouldn’t otherwise have done but for this program.”

finding ways to get the ball in the paint and we just started playing with a little more confidence,” Craft said. “In the first half we got some great looks, but they’re going in and out, they’re right around the rim and we just knew odds say the next one’s going to go in.”
Bassitt said she and her husband aim to have that kind of relationship with their tenants. “We’re kind of a different landlord,” she said. “We work with our people pretty closely. And we don’t hover over them, but we’re not hands-off either.” The Bassitts own one property in the off-campus area as well as several other properties throughout Columbus. The husband and wife team hope to purchase more properties in the university district, Bassitt said. Some students said the program’s goal sounds reassuring in what can be a difficult search for housing. Kevin Olszewski, a first-year in finance, is planning to move off campus next fall after living on campus for a year. He said finding a suitable house was difficult because many tenants re-sign their leases, which was information that often wasn’t available online. “(The Neighborhood Services and Collaboration) website was pretty helpful, but it could be a little bit more updated,” Olszewski said. “If (a house is) being re-leased for the next year, that would be helpful, because we went around to like 10 different houses and they were all being re-leased, but were listed as open.” He said knowing the results from the Off-Campus Housing Excellence Program would be a helpful additional resource. “(Undergraduate Student Government) did a little survey that said ‘Here are our best realtors based on reviews,’ but when I went around and talked to different tenants, and it’s very case-by-case, even within the same company,” he said. “I think (the program) definitely would be helpful because it would give you another thing to look at.” Undergraduate Student Government President Taylor Stepp, a fourth-year in public affairs, said all students should know what they’re getting into before they sign a lease, part of the goal driving USG initiatives and OSU’s excellence program. “USG puts out a renter’s guide every year … and it details student perspectives on landlords, but we wanted some sort of stamp of approval by the university,” Stepp said in November. “Then we also kind of separately wanted to make sure that we weren’t having these slumlords off-campus that were taking advantage of students, having them live in houses that weren’t up to code, so then those two ideas kind of merged in together to the housing standards of excellence which we have right now.” Sanchez said he hopes more involvement from landlords would be positive to the experience of living off campus “That interaction definitely goes a long way to improving landlord-resident relations,” he said. In addition to the home visits, Neighborhood Services and Collaboration provides free window and door alarms to students, as well as safety timers. Sanchez said in the fall, more than 2,600 window and door alarms and more than 1,200 safety timers were given away, totaling nearly $20,000 in safety devices provided to students. Daniel Bendtsen contributed to this story.
Next up, Williams and the Buckeyes will hope to take advantage of Penn State (10-10, 1-6) and its lack of height — no Nittany Lion starter stands taller than 6 feet 9 inches — Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center.

A screenshot of ‘American Idol’ judges Keith Urban (left), Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr.
C-Bus songstress croons as contestant on ‘American Idol’ HAYDEN GROVE Asst. sports director of BuckeyeTV email@example.com Some “American Idol” contestants, as they enter the audition room and stand across from Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr., are overcome by their tremendous anxiety. This immense stress can derail an audition and, perhaps, a dream. For Columbus’ own Sydney Arterbridge, however, the tremendous spotlight didn’t stand a chance. “The whole day I was nervous and excited,” Arterbridge said. “But just before I went into the room with the three judges, all my nerves washed away. I don’t know why.” The 15-year-old entered the room in Detroit in July and impressed the trio of evaluators with a rendition of Minnie Riperton’s “Lovin’ You,” earning her the “golden ticket” to Hollywood. For Arterbridge, a student at Fort Hayes Arts and Academic High School in Columbus, the “American Idol” audition was the realization of a dream, but she wasn’t the only one taking part in the moment. Arterbridge’s mother, Pamela Arterbridge, described her own emotional journey through the “American Idol” experience and couldn’t help but express her pride in her daughter. “I was very emotional because Sydney has watched ‘American Idol’ since she was a little girl,” Pamela Arterbridge said. “Every year she would tell me that she wasn’t old enough to audition, so finally, when she turned 15, her father and I drove her up to Detroit and were so overjoyed to see her live out her dream.” For the Arterbridge family, music has always had a central place in the household. Sydney Arterbridge’s father, Damon, is the lead vocalist for a Columbus-based reggae band named The Flex Crew and Pamela Arterbridge sings while she has time away from her career as a hairstylist. Sydney Arterbridge made clear that she appreciates the consistent support of her mother and father, but she spent some time to further explain her relationship with her dad, the professional musician. “He’s made a big influence on me,” Sydney Arterbridge said. “I’ve grown up on stage with him. He’s always helped to find performances on the circuit and he’s always been so supportive. He is really, really proud of what I’ve done.”
The Arterbridges share a musical bond and that bond was only strengthened when tragedy struck the family, said Sydney Arterbridge. When Sydney Arterbridge was a young girl, two of her brothers died in a car accident. She said she owes much of her musical prowess to them, who used to rap. “My brothers were into music so much, they influenced me at a young age,” Sydney Arterbridge said. “They would tell me when I was little, ‘Get on this track,’ or ‘Come sing on this.’ The accident inspired me to continue their legacy in music.” Sydney Arterbridge now spends most of her days in Los Angeles working with people in the music business, but wherever she goes, she said, her Columbus roots follow. “Columbus, music-wise, is a very supportive place,” Sydney Arterbridge said. “I have a huge fan base from my dad and mom. Columbus has taught me to be a friendly, supportive person. That’s what Columbus is all about — it’s always been important.” In addition, Pamela Arterbridge said her daughter has received plenty of encouragement from her hometown. “We are so overwhelmed with the community support from Columbus,” Pamela Arterbridge said. “It’s abundant and overwhelming. She gets inboxes from all over, people telling her how great she is and how she inspired them. I didn’t expect this.” Syndey Arterbridge said while she is unable to divulge any secrets from this season of “American Idol,” all she wants from the show going forward is to bring more authenticity to music. “I want to be everywhere, I want to sing on a huge circuit,” Sydney Arterbridge said. “I love old music, so I want to bring that back as well. I feel a lot of music today is pop, it’s not really singing. I want to bring back the soul into the music on the radio. I want to really sing.” Time will tell where Sydney Arterbridge will go, but for now, the young songstress has dreams of a life of musical stardom. “Madison Square Garden, Hollywood, performing across seas, I want all of that,” Sydney Arterbridge said. “I want to sing for my life. I want to be a legend.”

Attain Grammy glitz in everyday dress BREANNA SOROKA For The Lantern email@example.com Bright lights, celebrities galore and so much fashion. Admit it, you parked it right in front of the television Sunday night to tune in to the 2014 Grammy Awards. For a night meant to celebrate the best and the brightest in music, though, fashion was definitely in the spotlight. Read on for some of the popular trends of the evening and ways to incorporate them into your own wardrobe. Black, white and red all over Though there were obviously a few outliers, many of the ensembles spotted at the Grammys featured these utmost classic chroma. Whether you saw Miranda Lambert’s crimson, floor-length Pamella Roland gown or Madonna in the head-to-toe black of a Ralph Lauren suit, these colors were everywhere. If you’re not a fan of full-on, monochromatic outfits, you can still add little spurts of these colors to your average jeans-andcardigan garb with similar results. Black shoes are always classic, whether they’re flats with dress pants or boots worn over denim. And red is easy to add as a hair accessory, since it stands out from nearly all hair colors. Sparkle and shine Not a fan of the classics? Then the celebrities who brought their inner glamour girls out should be more your style. Maybe you witnessed Taylor Swift in a
metallic, floor-length Gucci dress or the lovely Armani Privé princess-esque gown worn by Kacey Musgraves. Either way, you saw some of the major sparkle of the evening and can easily tone this look down to a more casual ensemble. While jewelry is obviously a go-to when it comes to adding some shimmer to an average outfit, be bold and take it a step further by wearing a sweater complete with sequined shoulders, or rock some shoes that would make Dorothy jealous. A word of warning, though: Don’t combine too many sparkly pieces at once. People might confuse you for a disco ball, and that shouldn’t be anyone’s fashion goal. Cutouts galore If you’re willing to brave these frigid temperatures for fashion, you might want to take a leaf out of Colbie Caillat’s book — she donned an Ezra Santos beauty with an incredibly evident cutout swirling down her chest. Though that exact location for a lack of fabric is daunting to most, you can easily still rock this hot trend and stay comfortable. Sweaters with the shoulders cut out are easy to find this season and are the perfect balance between classy and insane when it comes to this style. If you’re more interested in trying this look during a night out, a flowing maxi dress with some midriff cutouts is also doable. Just make sure nothing else is exposed — frostbite is never in fashion. So whether you want to model your style after your fashion icon at the Grammys or are just interested in trying some new things, look to these tips and you will be well on your way to having some major fashion cred.
Bodega, a favorite spot in the Short North for many draft beer lovers, is closing this February for the first time since it opened in 2005 for a face lift and relaunch. Bodega is set to close Feb. 3 and reopen in three to five weeks, said Collin Castore, an owner of Bodega, in an email. Castore said he and co-owner Sangeeta Lakhani are really looking forward to this opportunity. “Me and my business partner Sang each just had the opportunity to open new places, Seventh Son Brewing and The Table, and enjoyed being able to plan an efficient space that functions well with the benefit of eight years of Bodega experience,” Castore said. “We have never had the opportunity to start from scratch at Bodega and are really trying to relieve some congestion and layout issues and create a space that works better for our employees and our customers.” The changes will be significant, Castore said. “We are going to take down our sign and awning and are in process of reapplying to the Italian Village Commission to rebuild a new patio enclosure,” Castore said. “The bar is moving and the seating is changing. We are also changing over to a more casual food ordering window rather than table service.” Castore said the changes are more of going back to what Bodega, located at 1044 N High St., was designed for in the first place. “We are taking it back to more of our original roots: Bodega as your neighborhood casual corner store with a little bit of everything done really well,” Castore said.
After the relaunch, many Bodega’s Grilled Cheese Mondays enthusiasts might find out that this longlasting tradition will be gone. Chelsea Torres, a fourth-year in biomedical science, said she does not understand why Bodega canceled Grilled Cheese Mondays. “That is the only reason I go there,” Torres said. “And I have only gone there a couple other times besides Grilled Cheese Mondays.” Castore said the decision was hard but the right one for them to make. “Mondays get very crowded and the waits are very long,” Castore said. “It is hard on customers and creates stress on the customer and server relationship that is not there the rest of the week.” Castore said the service is always the priority. “We want people to enjoy our servers, our space, our drinks and our food, not to be too cramped or busy to enjoy the atmosphere,” Castore said. “Eight years is a lot of cheese. It’s time to move on.” Adrien Fernandez, a fourth-year in history and Spanish, said she is not “entirely sold” on the changes Bodega is making. “The all-season patio sounds like a logical remodeling choice because it will provide more space, but that’s about the only upgrade I’m keen on,” Fernandez said. But Fernandez said she will still come and visit when Bodega reopens. “I’ll definitely go to Bodega after the relaunch part out of curiosity and part because I don’t think the remodel will change the atmosphere too much,” Fernandez said. “The owners said they were expecting backlash and it sounds like they know what they are talking about even if I don’t agree with everything.”

For women’s basketball, consistency needed in ‘tough’ Big Ten james grega jr. Lantern reporter email@example.com The Ohio State women’s basketball team (13-10, 3-4) has shown glimpses of brilliance this year, but it has not been able to put it all together for consecutive games in Big Ten play. It seemed that after upsetting Michigan on the road 61-50 Thursday, the Buckeyes would be able to carry the momentum into Sunday’s game against Michigan State (13-7, 5-2). This was not the case as OSU fell for the third time in four games, losing 82-68 against the Spartans. It was also the Buckeyes’ third consecutive loss at home. Despite recent struggles, the Buckeyes have received key contributions from their bench players, as they have outscored their opponents’ bench 56-18 in their last two games. Two big parts of the Buckeyes’ successes off the bench have been junior guard Raven Ferguson and senior center Ashley Adams. Ferguson has led the Buckeyes in scoring in their last two games and is currently OSU’s second-leading scorer with an average of 9.8 points per game despite only starting once so far this season. “I am trying to be as effective as I can,” Ferguson said Jan. 14. “I am just trying to do what I need to do in order for us to be successful.” Ferguson is not the only player to make key
contributions off of the bench this season. Adams has made her presence felt in the paint and is OSU’s second all-time shot blocker. “We really need her,” OSU coach Kevin McGuff said about Adams. “She can really change the game for us.” Although Adams struggled in the loss Sunday — only playing nine minutes and not registering a point — she played a large part in the Buckeyes’ upset win over Michigan when she scored 11 points and tallied nine rebounds in what was just her eighth start on the year. Also giving the Buckeyes key minutes as of late has been junior guard Maleeka Kynard, who tied a career high in points in the win over Michigan with 12 and played a season-high 31 minutes off the bench. If the Buckeyes want to be more successful in the Big Ten down the stretch, they will need more consistent play, redshirt-junior guard Amy Scullion said. “The Big Ten is a tough league,” Scullion said Jan. 21. “I think for us, the biggest thing is mental consistency. Our effort is usually good and we are usually playing hard but we do not execute at the level necessary.” The Buckeyes have a chance to avoid backto-back Big Ten losses Thursday when they are scheduled to take on Illinois (9-10, 2-4) at 7 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center.

Expectations are mounting for the highest returning scorer on the Ohio State lacrosse team as the men look toward their final exhibition game. Junior midfielder Jesse King scored 32 goals for the Buckeyes last season and is looking to fill the void left by those who graduated. King was a 2014 “Face-Off Yearbook” Division I first-team All-American selection and was one of eight collegiate players to be selected to try out for Team Canada. A familiar name also invited to try out for Team Canada was OSU’s all-time leading goal-scorer Logan Schuss, who moved on to the pros after the 2013 season. OSU head coach Nick Myers said he believes Schuss helped with King’s maturation process. “I think he (King) would be the first to tell you that a guy like Logan was a big part of that,” Myers said. “Logan really took him under his wings and I think it was great for him to have that kind of mentor.” Over the offseason, OSU lost a couple of key seniors in both Schuss and midfielder Dominique Alexander, and King said he knows he is going to have to step up in order to fill the leadership void they left. Fellow junior midfielder David Planning said King has been playing like a veteran ever since stepping foot on campus. “He was a leader and a captain from day one,” Planning said. “Whether it was on the field barking out orders with Logan and Dom, or outside of the field, it’s not new for him to pick up this leadership role this year.” Coming to OSU from Victoria, British Columbia, King still goes back home during the offseason and plays box lacrosse for the Victoria Shamrocks. Last summer, while playing with the junior team, King amassed 111 points in 15 games, good for third in the league despite playing fewer games because of OSU’s NCAA tournament run.
However, it was his call-up with the senior team for the Western Lacrosse Association playoffs that King said was inspiring. “When I got pulled up with the senior team, I met a lot of the guys that I dreamed about growing up,” King said. “It was cool to see how great they were to me, coming up as a young kid … it makes me reflect on guys coming up to our team and trying to be humble towards them.” Those experiences have translated well in Columbus. Senior midfielder Michael Italiano said the way King conducts himself on and off the field helps make the teammates around him better. “Jesse is a two-way kind of guy. He has a voice and knows the offense real well,” Italiano said. “He always comes in with a smile and a lot of energy … other players see that and they want to get better every day and follow his example.” This season, as OSU looks to defend its ECAC tournament title, Myers knows there could be more focus put on King, but he said he believes the Claremont Secondary School product is ready to take on the challenge. “Jesse is a very mature young man,” Myers said. “He is a guy that this year realizes that the spotlight is on him more and with that comes a bit more responsibility to manage his emotions and be the leader that we need him to be. I think he has really relished that and so far has done a nice job with it.” King is one of four returning players for OSU who totaled more than 20 points last season, and he does not see any reason why that number can’t increase this year. “We’ve got a great offense,” King said. “We have a lot of guys who are looking forward to step up … I’m excited for it.” Myers described King as a humble player who recognizes what it means to put on an OSU uniform each game and noted that the midfielder always puts his teammates before himself. “We talk about ‘we, not me’ as one of our standards, and Jesse is a guy who exemplifies that,” Myers said. “He is a great teammate who really understands what Buckeye lacrosse is all about.” King and the Buckeyes are set to be back in action Saturday at noon, hosting the Robert Morris Colonials in their third and final exhibition game at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.
Alabama running back tweet unfairly sexist toward women Copy Chief
There are few things that bring us together as a country like football. Small towns everywhere gather together under Friday night lights to bask in the glory of high school games. College towns huddle together through scorching heat and blistering cold for the love of the game. Even big cities jump on board to cheer on their own professional teams. Quite simply, football is MIchele Theodore inescapable. Hell, other countries email@example.com call it American football. It’s ours. We made it and we love it. We have parties based around it, and companies across the nation bid for their advertisements to be featured alongside the game. So to imply that half of the population can’t follow football is insulting and downright sexist. Yet, here we are. Bring in University of Alabama running back Kenyan Drake, who tweeted Jan. 20 from his personal account, @ KDx17, “Most girls like basketball more than football (because) they can follow it alot (sic) easier.” Sure, we can blow it off as another stupid thing an athlete sent out to the cyber world and another thing for which an athlete received a major repercussion (re: backup OSU quarterback Cardale Jones’ infamous tweet about how he didn’t come here to “play school” but rather to play football). But to me, it’s more than that. The idea that women can’t “follow” football easily is a blatant exclusion of women from part of the American identity and it’s downright insulting. Football has always been a boy’s club, sure, but there would be a great deal fewer fans without women filling the stands.
But let’s play along with his stereotypes. All those women who cook your meals before games and after practices (because that’s where women belong, right? In the kitchen?) don’t know what’s going on in the game. They’re just there to serve you. Same with that woman who knows how to get grass, blood, mud and the smell of sweat out of your uniform. Football is too complicated for her to realize how all those stains got there, but thank God she can wash it for you. And don’t forget the cheerleaders who follow you to every game, throwing themselves in the air to celebrate your achievements? Surely they have a man nearby telling them when to cheer because they’re too stupid to know what’s happening by themselves. Most importantly, what about all the mothers out there? All the mothers who drive their sons to practices, adorn themselves with buttons with their son looking dashing in his uniform so they can properly cheer him on, pray for his safety in every single play and never miss a game — all those mothers are so blissfully ignorant of what their son is doing. Of course, football has always been a male-dominated sport. It takes almost no common sense to figure that out. But to say girls can’t follow it is sexist, insulting and dated. Sexism starts in the most basic jokes. Saying someone can’t follow something or that they follow a certain stereotype, even in a joking matter, makes sexist comments down the line seem less insulting and detracts from the reality of exclusion. The worst part to me is that Drake later retweeted Iowa State redshirt-sophomore offensive lineman Duaron Williams (@UntamedBigDawg), who replied back “Or cuz they basic lol,” as a response to his first tweet. He isn’t sorry for what he did and he doesn’t realize his actions are insulting. But football has and always will be a part of my life that I definitely can follow and no, I’m not “basic.”
