thelantern Gee says to cut vendors, but OSU lacks plan


DYLAN TUSSEL Lantern reporter University ÿnancial ofÿcials do not have a plan to halt the growing bureaucracy that Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee said is squandering OSU’s resources, despite the pledge Gee made to address the issue last week. OSU has accumulated an excess of vendor relationships, and there is no timeline for cutting the extra fat, said Brendan Foley, vice president of Financial Planning and Analysis at OSU. The goal is to reduce the university’s 35,000 connections by more than 70 percent, Gee said in his semi-annual address to the faculty on Oct. 13. “Right now, it’s more of an aspirational goal, something we think we could do,” Foley said. “It’s really going to be an ongoing process.”

Dealing with so many suppliers is detracting from the university’s development, Gee said. “We are diverting our human and ÿnancial resources away from teaching and learning and likeminded activities that contribute to the future of the university,” Gee said. Ford Motor Co., in comparison, did business with 850 vendors last year. “Now we’re not a car company. … It is not unreasonable, though, to imagine and expect the university to have 10,000 relationships,” Gee said. “In fact, we must make that mark and then keep reÿning our expectations.” Reducing the number of vendors is not an easy task, said Walter Zinn, chair of the Department of Marketing and Logistics. “You have to decide who to cut and who to keep, and these are always very difÿcult decisions,” Zinn said. There is no estimate of how much OSU could

SARAH PFLEDDERER Lantern reporter When many think of greyhounds, they imagine a skinny dog known for racing or the name of a bus line. But Guillermo Couto, doctor of veterinary medicine at Ohio State’s Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, sees an opportunity to research a breed unlike any other. Couto could be considered the epitome of Greyhound consultation. He specializes in oncology, hematology, transfusion medicine and greyhound medicine. Couto received his doctorate of veterinary science from the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina and received training at the University of California-Davis. He has worked at OSU for 28 years, but his interest in greyhounds came later. He developed a fondness for them 18 years ago after owning his ÿrst, a retired racer named Clyde, who Couto said “knew what buttons to push to get me interested in him.” Couto ÿnds the breed fascinating because it has “evolved into an athlete.” He pursues most of his greyhound research through OSU’s Greyhound Health and Wellness Program, which he founded in 2004. “I was unofÿcially already doing greyhound stuff, so I might as well do it right,” Couto said. “The Greyhound Program is Dr. Couto’s dream. The program is very unique and successful; there is no other greyhound research program like this anywhere in the world,” said Liliana Marin, one of Couto’s graduate students and Greyhound Health and Wellness Program coordinator. One of the objectives of the Greyhound Health and Wellness Program is saving retired greyhound racers from death because of poor performance or retirement. Ten thousand to 15,000 racing

The program sets up adoptions for retired racers. There are 150,000 pet greyhounds compared to 40,000 racers, Cuoto said. The gap exists because racing is a trend that has been fading, Couto said. However, it is still popular in the south.

On Monday, I took a historical tour of Columbus while riding a vehicle that was introduced in 2001. SegAway Tours of Columbus offers a rare look into the history and landmarks of downtown CHRIS BURKETT Columbus and Lantern reporter its surrounding areas, including landmarks such as the building where the original National Football League ofÿces were located. The tour also provides riders with trivia, such as the possibility that graves remain beneath North Market. And yes, you are on a Segway for the entire tour. Before going on a two-hour Segway tour, one must learn to ride a Segway, a machine that costs about $5,500. For those not familiar, its movement is based on balance and shifts with the rider’s body weight. If riders lean forward, the Segway moves forward. To turn, the riders simply move the handle bars left or right. If riders bend at the waist and push their hands forward, the Segway speeds ahead. David Weller, the owner of the program and a tour guide, gave us about 15 minutes to get used to the Segways. Some of us felt comfortable enough to speed around, which made Weller visibly nervous. Others appeared to be terriÿed of the vehicle and froze in place on the two-wheeled machine.

save by reducing its suppliers, but Foley said it is likely millions of dollars. Working with fewer companies often saves money through decreased administrative costs and improved bargaining power, Zinn said. Gee put Geoff Chatas, OSU chief ÿnancial ofÿcer, in charge of the effort. Chatas did not respond to requests for comment. The university plans to identify big-budget areas and consolidate its purchases in those areas, Foley said. One such area is plumbing services, for which OSU depended on 99 companies last year. The university has not yet determined other areas where it depends on excess vendors. Gee said buying from such a large number of companies consumes the university’s ÿnancial resources and reduces its productivity.

With Homecoming Week ÿnally here, members of the court eagerly await the king and queen selection. This year’s winners will be announced during pre-game on Saturday in Ohio Stadium. Students were selected through a rigorous application and interview process in the spring, said Josh Harraman, director of student programs for the Ohio State Alumni Association. Although voting helps decide who receives the honors, it’s not the only way the king and queen are selected.

Harraman emphasized that homecoming is not a popularity contest. The 2010 Homecoming Court was selected based on students’ applications (30 percent), interviews (60 percent) and grade point averages (10 percent). The king and queen are chosen during Autumn Quarter through a combination of the application, interview and GPA (90 percent) and a student vote (10 percent), Harraman said. The king and queen each receives a $1,000 scholarship from the Alumni Association, an ofÿcial ring, a sash and a medal with the university’s seal. The queen also receives a tiara.

campus Students to work the polls SARAH FISHER Lantern reporter Ohio State and Columbus State students selected as “campus champions” are recruiting 500 of their fellow students to work the polls in Franklin County’s election Nov. 2. Chris Adams, coordinator of undergraduate programs at the John Glenn School of Public Affairs, along with Kevin Freeman, program manager of politics, society and law scholars, and Melinda Wright, assistant provost of the Ofÿce of Student Enrollment and Undergraduate Education, worked closely with representatives from Kids Voting Central Ohio and the Franklin Board of Elections to apply for and receive a grant to train 500 college students to work the polls on Election Day. The U.S. Election Assistance Commission awarded them a two-part grant: the ÿrst part to pay the student poll workers and the second to take advantage of digital media and socialnetworking sites. Although it is a three-year grant, its success from technological recruiting will determine its longevity.

“Our goal is to be as technological as possible,” said Rachel Coyle, a fourth-year in political science and psychology and a campus champion. “We’ve been using Facebook a lot, and Twitter and Buckeye Net News sourcing.” The campus champions have also been recruiting “the old-fashioned way” on the Oval, Coyle said. Benjamin Williams, a fourth-year in political science, is another campus champion. He emphasized the use of Internet ads and online training programs when talking about technological techniques. “We’re trying to use every available outlet we can to get as big of an audience as we’re able to muster,” Williams said. The goal of the grant is to recruit 250 students from OSU and 250 from Columbus State. Students must be registered voters in Franklin County to be considered as poll workers, Coyle said. To apply to be a poll worker, Coyle said students should print out and submit the application from Student poll workers will be paid $150 at the end of their daylong shift. After registering, students take part in online training seminars and simulations to learn the responsibilities of a poll worker, Williams said. They


then participate in a two-hour, in-person training session that gives hands-on experience with setting up and working Election Day equipment. A student poll worker’s day consists of setting up election equipment from 5:30 to 6:30 a.m. on Election Day. From 6:30 a.m., when the polls open to the public, until 7:30 p.m., when they close, the students assist voters by taking them to their ballots, making sure they have the correct ballot and answering questions. It gives the students the opportunity to take an active role in the democratic process, Adams said. Although 250 students have been recruited, Coyle said, transportation issues have prevented some from applying. Student poll workers are responsible for getting to their designated poll on their own, Adams said. Another deterrent is resistance from instructors who base class grades on attendance, Adams said, because students will be absent from classes for an entire day. But Williams said he thinks the experience will be worth it. “I think you really start to understand the political process,” he said. “You see how the individual kind of relates to the bigger picture, and that I think it is essential in understanding how our democracy functions.”

Long-term contracts difficult to negotiate, department chair says “Negotiating, tracking and managing so many relationships presents a signiÿcant burden,” he said. “Let me be clear: We must take this year to slay that dragon.” Relying on an excess of suppliers makes it difÿcult to negotiate long-term contracts and prices because business is split among so many vendors, Zinn said. “You don’t buy a high enough quantity from the same vendors,” he said. “In addition to that, the administrative cost is high because you have to manage all those relationships.” Those processes are not the only forces hindering OSU’s productivity. Government regulations on construction are another hurdle the university must jump. OSU received permission for ProjectONE, the $1 billion renovation and expansion of the OSU Medical Center, to be exempt from those regulations, Gee said.

Homecoming from 1A

Candidates receive carnation, pin when ‘tapped’ Harraman said this year’s candidates have “really come together as a group.” Candidates agreed that bonding with fellow court members was an important part of the experience. Alevtina Feinstein, a fourth-year in marketing, agreed that it’s not about winning. “It’s not a competition,” she said. “It sounds corny but it’s true.” The candidates come from diverse backgrounds. Feinstein moved to America from Russia when she was 4 years old. “I had to explain the signiÿcance to my parents,” she said. “I guess I’m a ÿrst-generation American college student.” Chloe Bender, a fourth-year in communication and political science, said she applied because her mom always wanted her to do it. The best part about ÿnding out she was a court member was being able to tell her mom, Bender said, adding that she left a message “kinda crying” on her mom’s voice mail. Cary Sloan, a fourth-year in hospitality management, said he didn’t even plan to go to college. He

“Because of this, we stand to save at the very least 15 percent in total expenditures and will be able to complete the project much more quickly,” he said. Gee said ProjectONE demonstrates the savings and improved productivity afforded to institutions that are free from external control. The government also regulates grant spending, which hinders faculty members from traveling and conducting research. “Both state and federal regulations that are intended to prevent people from misusing public funds … create unnecessary paperwork,” said Robert Perry, professor of physics and former chair of the Faculty Council, after Gee’s address. “A lot of the paperwork … creates extra work for us, extra work for our staff, which creates extra costs that take money away from doing research.” Grant regulations used to be more relaxed but they intensiÿed in the 1990s to address the misuse of public funds, Perry said. “The cost of keeping people from cheating is much greater than the amount of money saved from catching the cheaters,” he said. “It takes away from what we want to do, which is basic research.”

changed his mind when he visited OSU and “fell in love” with the school. Sloan found out he was on the court when he was tricked into a fake meeting at the Union. “I thought I was meeting about a club,” he said. “Instead it was my ofÿcial tapping.” When candidates are “tapped,” they are given a carnation and pin from the Alumni Association. They are also read a script, notifying them of their candidacy. The candidates do not know when they will be informed and are usually caught off-guard, they said. Justin Rismiller, a fourth-year in agribusiness and applied economics, said he was surrounded as he walked into a banquet. Homecoming is a great tradition because it connects students and alumni, he said. “It binds us all together,” Rismiller added. Jeffery (Tyler) Cole, a fourth-year in business administration, found out he was selected for court while at work. “It was a little embarrassing,” he said. Cole considers being on the court a huge honor, but it doesn’t matter if he becomes king, he said. “If I win, that’s great, but if the person beside me wins, that’s even better,” Cole said. “I’m going to be ÿlled with joy for whoever.”

The most commonly addressed problem in greyhounds is osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. About 30 greyhounds a day get bone cancer, Couto said. The Greyhound Health and Wellness Program uses chemotherapy to treat greyhounds diagnosed with the disease. It provides free chemotherapy to retired racers. However, it has not been proven that racing causes osteosarcoma. Couto is researching whether DNA is a factor. The program also acts as a consultation service for its members. The number of consultations has grown dramatically since 2004, when the program saw only about 100 greyhounds. Last year, Couto saw about 2,100. Owners from Europe, Australia and Asia contact Couto for greyhound consultation. Greyhounds from “literally everywhere,

Segway from 1A

Discounted tix available at Ohio Union Speeding on a Segway is fun — not that I recommend it. On multiple occasions when zooming downhill, the handle bars pushed into my stomach and I felt like I could not stop. It was only when I remembered to lean back that I slowed down enough to avoid hitting the Segway riders in front of me. By the end of the tour, everyone in my group of six was riding like a pro, though I was still relieved that we all had helmets. When the tour began, Weller led the way holding a hand-held stop sign and wearing a yellow, re° ective vest and helmet with a microphone that transmitted sound into speakers in our helmets. We rode around and heard about Columbus’ culture and history. We started by going to Nationwide Plaza, then stopped outside the Columbus Dispatch

Canada, Florida, Mexico and mostly all states east of the Mississippi” have traveled to visit him, he said. He remembered a patient from northern Canada who drove 16 hours for an appointment. Another highlight of the Greyhound Health and Wellness Program is its animal blood bank, which is the largest of the six animal blood banks in the United States. Greyhounds contribute the most donations because they have large veins and blood that is equivalent to O negative in humans, Couto said. Donors typically donate blood about four to six times per year. Couto also gives attention to greyhounds and small animals throughout the world, taking two to three trips every year with vet students to an animal clinic in Spain called Scooby. The clinic shelters 400 to 600 dogs but provides a small space with little resources to treat them, he said. Couto and the students spend a week at the clinic donating time and materials. “Spain is the capital of greyhound

building, NBC4’s building and others. At each stop, Weller shared information. He told us things we had never heard. For example, the National Football League’s original ofÿces are located downtown in the Hayden building, which will soon be a hotel. “Every place has a story,” Weller said. “Obviously the attraction is that you get to ride a Segway. But it’s not all history, some fun little facts here and there.” The tour took us as far south as State Street. We stopped at the Statehouse, Ohio Theatre and Palace Theatre. Perhaps the oddest stop was the Peanut Shoppe. It was also the busiest area of the tour. Pedestrians were everywhere because it was lunch hour. The most scenic portion of the tour was along the Olentangy River, where we had an excellent view of the city’s skyline. We also talked about the world’s most authentic replica of Christopher Columbus’ ship, the Santa Maria. The ÿnal part of the tour took

hunting,” Couto said. Most galgos, Spanish greyhounds, are thrown into a well or hung after they are done being used for hunting, he said. Couto’s ÿrst galgo, Bengy, was cut down shortly after being hanged. “Spaniards don’t adopt often,” he said, but the few galgos that do get adopted end up in the U.S., the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France and Italy. Couto joked that greyhound medicine is a good area to study because he is “the king of the castle since others don’t know much about it.” “He is 100 percent committed to the breed, the owners, the students and the veterinarians who are part of the greyhound community,” Marin said. He is the reason she came to OSU and the biggest in° uence on her career, she added.

Weller informed us that under the North Market there might still be caskets from when it was a graveyard. Archeologists never found all the caskets, and caskets have been exhumed in construction projects since the North Market opened at that location. We made our way back to the south side of the Greater Columbus Convention Center, where the tour begins and ends, so Weller could retrieve his Segways. It took a while to get used to walking again. It felt slow after zooming for two hours at about 7 mph, or twice as fast as the average walking speed. Everyone in the tour seemed to love it. Our group ranged in age from 23 years old to 50 years

old, and people were from all over. Only two of us were from Columbus. One person was from Wisconsin (yes, he was a Badger fan), one was from Las Vegas and the other two were from Indiana. Weller said most people who take the tour are at least 40 years old, but there are plenty of younger people who take the tour. He added that SegAway Tours has permission to perform campus tours and did not rule it out as possibility for the future.

student voice Despite fiery speech, I’ll sit this vote out LANTERN Columnist

Excitement is the single most palpable feeling in the world. And it was available in abundance at the “Moving America Forward” rally featuring President Barack Obama to raise support for the Democratic Party before elections in November. There seemed to be an endless number of speakers who were basically saying the same thing: “Democrats good. Republicans bad.” But it’s still a surreal feeling to know that Ohio is a “battleground state.” We can make a huge differVANESSA SPATES ence here and we have in the past. Normally I don’t like discussing politics, but when politicians literally come to your backyard to plead for your votes, it requires a step back to evaluate the situation. Ohio is classified as a swing state, and everyone in the audience Sunday knew that, as a whole, we are one of the reasons why Obama won the presidency in 2008. Ohio has gone to the winner of the presidential election in all but two since 1892. That’s why those good old politicians keep coming back to our lovely state for more — we are so mixed in our political views here. It’s empowering and inspirational to know that we pack that kind of punch. Now the Democrats are trying to hold on to their thrones in Ohio, and with the estimated 35,000 people that showed up at the rally on Sunday, they might have just succeeded in getting people fired up. There’s no better motivator than anger, and the president’s message that Republicans want to take this country and state a step backward had the crowd up in arms. There was plenty of catcalling and jeering anytime a politician mentioned the other side. It wasn’t unlike being at a high school pep rally. Michelle Obama started off her brief speech with the one thing that can win over any Buckeye — the “O-H-I-O” chant. That increased the feeling of otherworldliness that had been settling on the audience all evening. It really drives home the fact that our state is a pivotal one, and this university is the epicenter of it all. What does that mean for me and the rest of my peers? Will students actually rise up and exercise their right to vote in November? I don’t know. As for me, I’m sitting this one out. I personally don’t think much gets done in Washington besides a lot of mud-slinging and hair-pulling. I have better things to do than worry about over-privileged men and women who want to take over the world.

TYLER JOSWICK / Asst. photo editor An estimated crowd of 35,000 gathered Sunday to see President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama throw their support for Democratic candidates at Ohio State’s Oval. The campaign stop was the fourth of a flurry of stops running up to the Nov. 2 election aimed to keep Democrats in power in Ohio and other key battleground states.

Obama’s visit not the top of week’s events President’s speech was a sight to see, but author Wes Moore offered a poignant reminder about life’s consequences LANTERN Columnist

Last week was one of those great times to be a student who gets involved on campus. I spent Tuesday listening to author Sapphire speak at William Oxley Thompson Library. That night, a gal pal and I dined at a gala in the historic Lincoln Theatre that supported the Center for Healthy Families, and we heard the Harmony Project community choir. Wednesday, Wes Moore came to campus as part of the President and Provost Lecture PATRICIA CUNNINGHAM series. Students were looking forward to John Legend’s visit Sunday, but to many people’s surprise, he shared the Oval with President Barack Obama and 35,000 of his closest Buckeye friends. It was an awesome experience to be on stage with 100 other students and look at that crowd on the Oval.

Sapphire wrote the best-selling novel “Push,” which was then made into an Academy Awardwinning film, “Precious.” Moore is a Rhodes Scholar and author of “The Other Wes Moore.” Obama, of course, is the president of the United States. Coming to Ohio State with different backgrounds and purposes, they all had important points for their audiences. However, one event stood out. Moore gave the best talk. His book is the first that I have read that was completely useful. He talks about how men in the West do not have a uniform rite of passage to adulthood. It is because of this lack of rite of passage, he argues, that there exist so many paths in life that can lead to a man’s destruction. The premise of his book, based on his own story and that of another

man named Wes Moore in his neighborhood, is about two men with the same name and the same basic life set-up. Eventually their paths diverge based on sets of decisions they make and decisions made for them by others. The other Wes Moore finds himself spending his adulthood in prison. Moore’s talk hit home that life is about consequences of the choices we make and the choices made for us. It reminded me of those childhood choose-your-own-adventure books. Life, and especially college, is a choose-your-own-adventure book. You make a decision at page 50 to turn to page 128 instead of page 17 and you end up in a situation that you did not want to be in. You can have one event that changes your life — and being an involved student at OSU frequently offers you those opportunities. My hope for all Buckeyes is not just to leave their marks on campus but also to turn the pages of their own books, leading to better adventures and greater self-awareness. Part of that is being a good citizen (and doing one’s duty to vote, as former Sen. John Glenn quipped Sunday night). Moore reminded me of something else, too: Success in life is a path we help to pave. The path is there, but we have to do the work to make the road.

‘Schedule imp’ always strikes at the most inopportune time LANTERN Columnist

Have you ever had one of those weeks where it feels like someone stole your planner, and now everyone in the world is conspiring to dump everything on you in what is already one of your busiest weeks? I feel like that happens to me every time I have something huge and stressful going on. Earlier this month, for example, I took the LSAT. If anything sucks up your time and makes you feel like your DOROTHY POWELL head is going to explode, it’s the LSAT. So, of course, in the week preceding, I had a paper due, a test and approximately 9,000 homework assignments, plus late meetings. Because, you know, a couple nights of sitting at home studying wouldn’t have been helpful or anything. Of course, stressful weeks like that are almost always followed by weeks where I have nothing to do but lounge around the house, irritating my busy biology-major roommate. It’s like there’s a creepy little imp who steals my planner and likes to switch up a soulcrushing workload with periods of mind-numbing boredom. An obnoxious, creepy little imp that does not care about consistency. I realize the likelihood that someone actually stole my planner and contacted all of my professors and club leaders to talk them into dumping all of this on me at the worst moment is slim to none. My planner, for the most part, is boring. It tends to read something like: homework, class, mock trial meeting. Rinse and repeat. The more reasonable explanation is, of course, that when I’m stressed out, every little thing feels so much more dire, and when I’ve just had a crazy week, having fewer things to do feels like the clock moves half as fast. Like when you fast forward through a movie and then are weirded out when it moves at a normal pace. Even knowing this, there’s part of me that feels there is that little imp who likes to cause trouble and make my life miserable when it already feels a bit bleak. Besides, it’s always easier to blame things on creatures that don’t exist. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I believe my imp is making me do homework for five more hours.

Horoscopes by Nancy Black and Stephanie Clements, ©2010 Tribune Media Services Inc. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY This year your potential to bring everything together into a beautiful, successful package is high. Handle the details. You care more than anyone else, after all. Desire meets intelligence to form just the right energetic mix. Follow your heart for best results. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. ARIES March 21 – April 19 Today is an 8 -- You must devise a creative plan that includes your partner and other important individuals. You won’t satisfy everyone, but will provide basic needs.



VIRGO Aug. 23 – Sept. 22 Today is a 7 -- You want change, and you’re willing to run right out and make it. Younger people may seem inflexible on at least one point. Be patient. LIBRA Sept. 23–Oct. 22 Today is a 7 -- The course of love doesn’t run smooth for someone in your family. You can soothe ruffled feathers by telling jokes and being utterly silly.


SCORPIO Oct. 23 – Nov. 21 Today is a 7 -- Apply your creativity to concrete problems with a sibling or neighbor. It’s better to have a great plan than to rush forward without one.

TAURUS April 20 – May 20 Today is a 7 -- Your need for independence may lead to travel away from home. A friend suggests an unexpected destination that suits your mood beautifully.

SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22 – Dec. 21 Today is a 7 -- You may need to spend money today on others. Listen to demands, and then figure out what can be done to accommodate them without breaking the budget.

GEMINI May 21 – June 21 Today is a 6 -- Rapidly developing circumstances force you to adapt to social demands. In the process, an idea transforms and you discover opportunities.

CAPRICORN Dec. 22 – Jan. 19 Today is a 7 -- Creative requirements at home put you on notice that you’re skills are in high demand. Shop carefully for the best bargain and quality.

CANCER June 22 – July 22 Today is a 7 -- If you want the spotlight today, you can have it, but only if you overcome an objection from a close associate. You can share, if you’re willing.

AQUARIUS Jan. 20 – Feb. 18 Today is a 7 -- You want to shout your news from the rooftops. Call the essential parties first. They deserve to know in advance. Then issue a press release.

LEO July 23 – Aug. 22 Today is a 6 -- What you think you want in the morning changes dramatically halfway through the day. Others offer alternatives that seem more appealing. Now you have choice.

PISCES Feb. 19 – March 20 Today is a 7 -- You don’t have to take the spotlight today. In fact, others benefit when you allow them to have their say and reserve your response for another day.

Not only did Ohio State leave Madison, Wis., emotionally scarred, suffering its first loss of the season Saturday, but the Buckeyes also left physically scarred, with fewer healthy bodies than when they arrived. OSU’s already-limited defense has become further depleted because of injury.

Women’s Volleyball v. Northwestern 7pm @ Evanston, Ill.

Leaving possibly the biggest void in the OSU defense is the loss of senior linebacker and leading tackler Ross Homan. Coach Jim Tressel said Homan will likely miss the next couple of weeks because of a foot injury suffered at Wisconsin. Already plagued with injuries this year, the defensive backfield has taken another hit with the loss of Tyler Moeller’s replacement, Christian Bryant, who will be out for at least this week’s contest against Purdue.

“He had an infection last week, and we thought we had it under control, and he played a little bit in the game, and then he had a not-very-good reaction to it on the plane ride back,” Tressel said. “He’s been over at Ohio State Medical Center trying to get it under control, and I don’t know all the whys and the wherefores and whatnot, but it doesn’t look like he’ll be out of there until late this week.” As far as who will step in during

SPORTS Columnist


Ohio State men’s basketball coach Thad Matta introduced his new assistant in April with promises that he would extend recruiting pipelines and improve post players. Nearly six months later, it seems Dave Dickerson is doing just that. “If you look at our staff makeup, we are kind of Midwestern predominant,” Dickerson said. “With me coming on to the staff, you do bring a different flare that we did not have.” With coaching experience along the East Coast, in the Southeast and most recently in the Deep South as the head coach at Tulane University in New Orleans, Dickerson’s flare has expanded OSU’s recruiting footprint. “He has recruited at the highest level and he is very, very well-connected,” Matta said. He has already convinced one player to wear Scarlet and Gray. Forward Evan Ravenel transferred to OSU from Boston College, in part because of the relationship he developed with Dickerson while being recruited by Tulane, Matta said. Ravenel will sit out a year before joining the team on the court. Dickerson played down his importance in landing the transfer, calling the timing of the situation “lucky.” Dickerson was hired as more than a recruiter. His two Final

Four appearances and one national championship while on the staff at the University of Maryland bring important experience to the team, Matta said. That experience has focused on the post players. Dickerson has “helped me with everything really. It’s not really one dominant thing,” senior center Dallas Lauderdale said. “He helps me with my ball handling, my jump shot, my jump hook and my free throws.” Lauderdale, who averaged 6.2 points per game and shot only 40.7 percent from the line, could improve in all those areas. “I think Dallas is doing a better job of just putting the ball in the basket,” Dickerson said. “We are trying to develop him with a little turnaround jump shot to where now he can be more versatile and have more catches in the post.” Teammates have noticed Dickerson’s impact. “Dallas has done a great job this offseason working on his offensive game,” senior guard Jon Diebler said. Dickerson’s impact doesn’t end with fundamentals. “I think he is more of a player’s coach,” Lauderdale said. “If he sees a play he feels we should have made, he will stop practice and let us know.” Matta seemed content with his assistant halting play to make his point. “Every coach that I have ever had, I want thinking like a head coach,” he said.

This was supposed to be the year of eight for the Ohio State football team. The team seemingly had all the pieces to go 12-0 during the regular season and win the school’s eighth national championship. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor would also become OSU’s eighth recipient of the Heisman Trophy, thrusting him into Buckeye lore. Then, after the Buckeyes were beaten and battered by Wisconsin Saturday night, most fans gave up hope on the season. Everyone together now, take a deep breath. Through seven weeks of the season, three teams have ascended to the No. 1 ranking (Alabama, OSU and now Oregon). Verdict? No dominant college football team exists in 2010. Here’s a rundown of what the apparent national title contenders face the rest of the season. Oregon still has to play at Southern California, home versus Washington, home against No. 18 Arizona (who has already beaten Iowa) and at Oregon State. Its defense has put up good numbers but hasn’t faced a team as physical as USC or a quarterback with the shake-and-bake of Washington’s Jake Locker. No. 2 Oklahoma travels to No. 18 Missouri and No. 17 Oklahoma State before its regular season ends. It’ll likely face Missouri or No. 14 Nebraska in the Big 12 title game. The Sooner defense gave up 24 points to lowly Utah State and 351 rushing yards to Air Force. It isn’t going undefeated with a cupcake defense. After they face each other next week, all No. 5 Auburn and No. 6 LSU have to do is take on No. 7 Alabama, as well as the SEC East winner in the SEC championship game. Auburn gave up 332 yards passing and four touchdowns to Arkansas’ backup quarterback last weekend — in a little more than one half. LSU can’t decide who its quarterback is. Enough said.

Former Buckeye Dalpe breaks the ice in NHL career ro ber t gar trell Senior Lantern reporter On Oct. 7, as the Carolina Hurricanes were preparing to begin the 2010 season, 20-yearold Zac Dalpe sat in the locker room of the Hartwall Arena, anxiously awaiting the start of his first NHL game. Just 364 days earlier, Dalpe was still a teenager at Ohio State, getting ready to start his sophomore season against tiny Quinnipiac University. Now, he was in the NHL and about to play (in Helsinki, Finland, of all places) against the Minnesota Wild. Shortly before the puck dropped, Hurricanes head coach Paul Maurice pulled Dalpe and fellow rookie Jeff Skinner aside to remind them how significant the night would be. “He said, ‘You only get one game in your career to be your first game,’ and it was awesome,” Dalpe recalled. “It was great to start off that way.” Dalpe added to the evening of firsts in the second period, scoring his first point with an assist on a goal from Anton Babchuk. His point helped make the difference in the Hurricanes’ 4-3 victory.

Although he hasn’t added to his point total since that game, Dalpe is establishing himself as an aggressive, offensive-minded center on the Hurricanes’ fourth line. And although he’d grown accustomed to being a first-line player in college and junior hockey, Dalpe is happy with any role he can get in the NHL this early in his career. “In the NHL, it’s fun to be a rookie,” Dalpe said. “I love it every day and I don’t take it for granted.” He can’t afford to if he wants to stay with the team. Going into Hurricanes training camp, Dalpe faced an uphill battle to make the roster, as most throughout the organization expected him to wind up playing for the Charlotte Checkers, Carolina’s minor league affiliate. But even with little experience or room for error, Dalpe’s confidence never wavered throughout the nerve-wracking camp. “I came to camp for one reason, to make the team,” Dalpe said. “Obviously you get nervous about being sent down (to the minor leagues), but that’s something that you can control.” Even without scoring a goal during any of the preseason games, his relentless determination with the puck revealed shades of the

offensive prowess that had marked him as a player at OSU. John Markell, who coached Dalpe during his two seasons as a Buckeye, was familiar with what the Hurricanes’ coaches were learning. “He plays at a high speed and practices properly,” Markell said. “He possesses a good shot, works tremendously hard, he’s a good skater and he has the size to compete at that level. He has tremendous upend.” When he arrived at OSU, Dalpe made an immediate contribution, scoring 12 goals, 13 assists and being named to the Central Collegiate Hockey Association’s all-rookie team. His second season would be his last at OSU, but not before turning several heads as Dalpe led the CCHA with 21 goals to go along with 24 assists. When he decided to sign with the Hurricanes, who drafted him in 2008, nobody was shocked by his departure. “I don’t think he’s fully developed yet, but skill-wise, he was ready to move on,” Markell said. “I think he’ll continue to mature physically as he plays more and more pro.” Immediately after leaving OSU, Dalpe was sent to play for the then-Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League. Dalpe’s knack

for scoring continued with the River Rats, scoring six goals in nine games. Despite playing in only nine games with Albany, Dalpe says the experience was pivotal to helping him acclimate to the professional game. “Playing in Albany helped a ton,” Dalpe said. “Going there, I

didn’t think I was going to play a lot, but they threw me into the mix right away. I definitely had some time to learn, but it happened all at once, so I definitely think that was a good tune-up.” Although he remains with the team, it’s likely he will be sent to the minors at some point as he continues to develop his defensive game and grow into his 6-foot-1-inch, 195-pound frame. “It’s not the end of the world, it’s part of your development,” Markell said of that possibility.

Panic from 7A

Buckeyes must win remaining games to have shot at BCS title There will be a mid-major elimination game on Nov. 6 as No. 9 Utah and No. 4 TCU square off. The loser of the game is immediately eliminated from the title picture, and the winner isn’t guaranteed anything even if it doesn’t lose a game. Although it’s already beaten Wisconsin and won’t have to play OSU, I’m not sold on No. 8 Michigan State. One, it hasn’t played a game outside the state of Michigan yet. Two, it travels to No. 13 Iowa a week from Saturday. If the Spartans are still undefeated in two weeks, go ahead and crown them. The only team that will go untested the rest of the season is No. 2 Boise State. With that being said, a lot has to go right for OSU to re-enter the national title picture. On the other hand, the 2010 college football season is a masterpiece that is far from finished. And if recent history in college football has taught us anything, it is to expect the unexpected in a season with no clear-cut top team. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the chaos of the 2007 college football season. Week One: Appalachian State stuns No. 5 Michigan in the Big House. Week Five: No. 3 Oklahoma and No. 4 Florida lose to unranked Colorado and Auburn. Week Six: No. 2 USC loses at home to 41-point underdog Stanford. Week Seven: OSU and South Florida rise to No. 1 and No. 2 after previous No. 1 and No. 2, LSU and Cal, lose to division foes.


“Zac’s been fortunate enough to not be sent down yet, but if he does, he’s going to have to deal with that. Those are the things that help you develop as a pro.” For now, Dalpe doesn’t plan on going anywhere. “If they send you down, then that’s fine,” Dalpe said. “But I’m really happy to be here and I plan on staying here.”

Week Eight: South Florida’s stay at No. 2 is short as it falls to Rutgers. Week Ten: New No. 2 Boston College falls to unranked Florida State. Week 11: OSU suffers embarrassing loss on Senior Day to Illinois. Week 12: Not only is No. 2 Oregon defeated by Arizona, but it loses its quarterback, likely Heisman winner quarterback Dennis Dixon, to a seasonending injury while No. 4 Oklahoma is beaten by Texas Tech. Week: 13: No. 1 LSU is topped by Arkansas in a wild triple-overtime loss, and No. 4 Missouri beats No. 2 Kansas to move within one win of playing for the school’s first national championship. Week 14: No. 1 Missouri and No. 2 West Virginia choke in the final week of the season, giving rise to No. 1 OSU and No. 2 LSU, which ended up being the first national champion with two losses. The Buckeyes need to win their remaining games, preferably quite handily, to stand any chance. Furthermore, they need a ton of help. I’m convinced Oklahoma, Oregon and Michigan State will each lose at least once. It would help OSU tremendously if Oklahoma and Oregon lost twice. Then, OSU needs the three SEC West teams to take each other out and produce only one one-loss team. Utah and TCU also both need to lose. If all of that shakes out, and depending on the voters, OSU might stumble upon another national champion game berth against an SEC team. Far-fetched? Yes. Impossible? No. As college football fans are well-aware of by now, nothing’s impossible with the BCS.

Tressel from 7A

Special teams struggles show up again in loss to Wisconsin Bryant’s absence, Tressel said he wasn’t sure yet but suggested a few possibilities. “Without having sat in the defensive room and talked about it with them, you have a couple different ways you can go,” he said. “Jermale Hines has played a lot of nickel, which would probably put (Aaron) Gant in the game. Nate Oliver was your No. 2 nickel all spring and all season until he got hurt, and he’s back healthy … or you can do what Iowa does. Iowa plays nickel with their base people.” Also on the defensive side, linebacker Dorian Bell remains out after suffering a concussion against Indiana. No matter who is in there, Tressel expects them to perform. “We’ve got to have someone ready. That’s why you get to practice Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and have walkthroughs on Friday,” he said. “If you want anyone to care that you’ve had three guys in your secondary hurt, you’re coaching the wrong sport at the wrong school because we’ve got to be ready.” Facing adversity Coming off its first loss in nearly a year, OSU is looking to pick up the pieces from its lackluster performance at Wisconsin last week, and Tressel said that loss will serve as a real test for his team. “We’ve always talked about leadership and maturity and that it’s not really tested until those adverse moments,” he said. “I think you’ll see a good demonstration of our level of maturity and leadership and so forth, and I have confidence we have the right kind of people.” With the loss behind them, the No. 10-ranked Buckeyes turn their sights to the conferenceunbeaten Purdue Boilermakers. And although the Bucks once again find themselves attempting to bounce back from a difficult mid-season conference defeat, Tressel said that how his guys respond will say a lot about this team. “We told our guys countless times that there are 10 teams that want one thing for sure and that’s for Ohio State not to be the Big Ten champions, and that’s real,” Tressel said. “And now let’s see how you can handle it, and we’ll get a little glimpse of that at practice, but the real look at it will be Saturday and then the following Saturday and the following.” Continuing special teams woes After making strides in the right direction in recent weeks, OSU kick coverage took another step

in the wrong direction at Wisconsin as the Badgers set the tone early, returning the opening kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown. “The bottom line is that when you’re covering kicks, there are no excuses,” Tressel said. “They don’t care if you get pushed in the back, grabbed, held, thought you should have gone around it, you thought the ball was going here or there. You have to fit. And just like when you’re playing defense, you have to fit. Kickoff, you have to fit from 70 yards away. Defense you have to fit from the line of scrimmage. We just didn’t fit.” Although the botched kickoff coverage is a point of concern for Tressel, he said it certainly did not cost his team the game. “Please don’t paint the picture that us having the kickoff taken back lost the game,” he said. “We still had 59 minutes and 48 seconds, so we had plenty of time to make up for that, but we’ve got to get better at that.” Defensive struggles The Badger ground game, at times, gave the Buckeyes fits. OSU allowed a 100-yard rushing performance for the first time in 29 games, as John Clay rushed for 104 yards. As questions continued to arise about OSU’s defensive performance, Tressel said the team’s depth at defensive line isn’t what it has been in recent years. “Are we as deep and can we rotate as much as when we had … (last year) you had Thaddeus (Gibson) and you had Lawrence Wilson, you had Doug Worthington, you had Todd Denlinger, you had Rob Rose?” Tressel said. “Those guys all were the rotators last year and they’re rotating elsewhere right now. But that’s where we are.” Despite lacking line depth, Tressel said the younger guys are continuing to come along, and his goal is for them to improve as the season progresses. Not the same Pryor OSU has become accustomed to Terrelle Pryor lighting up the score board, so the junior quarterback’s struggles Saturday seemed a bit uncharacteristic of his season thus far. And although there were passes Tressel said Pryor would probably like to have back, he was pleased with his signal caller’s effort. “I think he played extremely competitively,” Tressel said. “As far as competing and wanting to do anything he could do for the good of the team, he would have gone down to cover kickoffs if you let him, that’s just his nature. “I don’t know what else you can ask of a guy (except) to leave it on the field, and he left it on the field.”

concert schedule WEDNESDAY

Patricia Cunningham, a graduate student in the College of Education and Lantern columnist, said being in the presence of bell hooks (an intentionally lowercased pen name designed to place the focus on her work and not her fame) is the opportunity of a lifetime. With social and economic issues on the minds of many students, hooks will come to Ohio State to give voice to her interdisciplinary work in women’s studies and education policy and to give students a breath of inspiration. Hooks is a feminist scholar and author who will be a Visiting Distinguished Professor of Women’s Studies. She has written more than 35 books about popular culture, gender studies, race theory and sexuality. Her two-week campus visit for Autumn Quarter will launch tonight with a public conversation in 131 Hitchcock Hall called “Keeping it Real: The Practice of Diversity.” The conversation starts at 4:30 p.m. and also features Shannon Winnubst, an associate professor of women’s studies at OSU. Although Winnubst couldn’t unveil specific details of the speech, she was positive that hooks will speak on the economic crisis of the nation, which has been on her mind. “She’s written over 35 books, so she

has been a constant voice in feminist critique in the United States, Winnubst said. There’s no way of not paying attention to bell hooks’ work if you’re going to pay attention to social issues,” she said. Even though hooks writes and speaks about complex social issues, students are given the opportunity to be motivated by her thinking. “One of her trademark qualities is that she writes and speaks in an extremely accessible language, so particularly for undergrad students, it’s a really riveting experience,” Winnubst said. Undergraduates in women’s studies are encouraged to read hooks’ work. Many courses use her text as primary or secondary materials to give students a deeper understanding of social and culture ideologies. OSU student Andy Cavins read hooks’ work as a freshman. “Her theory and her research is a very vital part in the further research of students in women’s (studies) students,” said Cavins, a women’s studies major and office associate in the Department of Women’s Studies. “Critical thinking is something students should be leaving college with, and I think that’s something she does a very good job of,” Cunningham said. Another important trademark to hooks’ dynamism is her ability to engage with a wide range of people, Winnubst said. Her

Finding pleasure in Trauma ZacHaRiaH Jones Senior Lantern reporter For many, Halloween is about candy and costumes. For those with a taste for fetishes and freak shows, The Bar of Modern Art will host the TRAUMA Halloween Fetish Party Oct. 28, beginning at 9 p.m. “It really is a wild and off-the-wall kind of party, but I think there is something for everyone to enjoy,” said event coordinator Jacob Wooten. “That is not to say there won’t be some really edgy things there though.” For one couple, this type of edgy is the perfect way to spend an anniversary. “We go because our anniversary is on Halloween and we are big fans,” Carrie Mitchell said. “We enjoy going and seeing the hook show, which is when people put large hooks in their skin and airlifted into the air.” Body suspension shows are one of many fetishrelated attractions on display at the party. BOMA will make use of five different rooms for the TRAUMA party. The only room without disc jockeys performing will be the first room, which will feature “101 classes”

teaching visitors about hypnosis, pole dancing and bondage lifestyle. “I think the sound of a fetish freak show may sound crazy to a lot of people, but it is really a lot of the people that make the event so unique and crazy rather than all of the attractions,” Wooten said. The dungeon room will feature Goth music and attractions, and the patio will be heated and tinted, Wooten said. “The patio will also feature four disc jockeys and has often become the wildest part of the party in past years,” he said. The rules on the event website encourage visitors to “ask permission before touching someone or handling toys” and to “clearly communicate intentions to a playmate. Know their limitations and your own.” In the Great Room, there will be rope-tying. “This is a room where people can play with a friend or even play with a stranger,” Wooten said with a laugh. Wooten was unable to disclose several specific details regarding the exhibits and performances for the show. In an attempt to maintain a sense of mystery and

Take that idea, add a bigger venue and the distorted noise-pop sound of the New York-based band Sleigh Bells and you have this year’s Bar of Modern Art’s Halloween Party. BoMA is known for hosting one of Columbus’ largest costume parties, and although it isn’t mandatory to wear a costume, it is encouraged. Originally opened in 2006, the nightclub and restaurant has since been turned into an event venue that hosts large-scale rendezvous and parties. BoMa) “really stands out as a place to go

downtown,” said Nelson Ai, a third-year in middle childhood education. “The artistic feel of the place makes it an interesting place to have a costume party.” With two dance floors and a three-tier design, BoMA is aiming to outdo all other Halloween parties it has hosted to date by booking three performers to fit the mold. The guy-gal duo Sleigh Bells, Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss, were signed to a record label by the mind behind 2008’s Grammy-winning record “Paper Planes,” Mathangi Arulpragasam, who is better known by her stage name M.I.A. Sleigh Bells’ debut album “Treats,” released this past summer, gained positive reception from music critics and hit No. 39 on the overall Billboard 200 Albums Chart. “I’ve been listening to dubstep for a few years now,” said Evan Lee, an undecided second-year. “It’s the perfect party music, fist-pumping and all.”

arts&life Lantern cD Reviews Shakira shakes things up Ryan Book Arts editor “Sale el Sol” is the second album in two years for Columbian pop star Shakira. If they were being made simultaneously, the extra year of effort shows in the new release. Last year’s “She Wolf” was characterized by the music video for the title track, which featured Shakira writhing suggestively while caged. The video, although appealing to teenage males everywhere, lost the artist some credibility with tougher pop audiences. The new album rights the train without sacrificing any of the hip-shaking anthems that Shakira has made her name on. Among the few disappointing tracks on the album are the two singles. The first was released early in the summer as the official song of the World Cup in South Africa. “Waka Waka (Esto es Africa)” is well-intentioned in its call to help Africa, but “Feed the World” it ain’t (plus it sounds like a Muppets reference). The first official single is “Loca,” a homage to crazy love featuring a thick bass drum and Dominican rapper El Cata. It works as a dance floor single, but for a good time listeners should call on the track “Gordita,” a song that’s even catchier and

features Puerto Rican rapper Calle 13. The album’s strongest feature is that the majority of it is in Shakira’s native tongue. She simply sounds smoother (and from an American perspective, sexier) when she opts for Spanish. The best tracks on the album are not the club-centered songs, however. “Lo Que Más” is a piano ballad that Shakira pours herself into, and the passion goes a long way. “Devoción” features the same zeal but blends it with Shakira’s pop sensibilities, making it the best track on the album. Many apologies to anyone sitting on YouTube looking for a new Shakira video to spend the night with, but this time around, she’s serious.

Two stars shining bright

Kings keep their crowns

“The Union” elton John / Leon Russell

Ryan Book Arts editor Wizened folks say you can’t have too much of a good thing. On “The Union,” the listener definitely does not have too much wizened piano playing. The album is the joint project between two musicians who have built their careers around the piano: country artist Leon Russell and Elton John. Both have been around the musical block. Russell is 70 years old and John isn’t far behind at 63. The two said that they’ve always been mutual fans, and the time was right for a dual-album. It might be a dual album, but don’t expect any dueling pianos. Both artists stay within their comfort zones while playing and take turns being the primary vocalist while the other adds vocal harmonies. Piano isn’t the sole instrument either; an occasional gospel choir and a backing band provide a range of diverse styles for the headliners to plink the keys with. And a range of styles there are. “Hey Ahab” is almost a gospel track itself, building up to a finale where the choir rises

in fervor along with the band. “Gone to Shiloh” immediately follows “Hey Ahab” with a slow and solemn track led by Russell, narrating the depression of a Civil War soldier. Russell is actually the better half on the album, even if John’s name is the first used in the advertising campaign. “If It Wasn’t For Bad” is the best track on the album, led vocally by Russell, an artist who sounds like he really has seen it all. The hoedowninducing “A Dream Come True” also goes a long way on his influence. John does his part as well, though. There is no doubt that the combination of the two is a masterstroke. The two seem to have had a good time making the album and better yet, they did a good job of it.


“come around sundown” kings of Leon

James ga rcia Lantern reporter Kings of Leon’s newest album, “Come Around Sundown,” sounds like a continuation of the band’s previous album, “Only By the Night,” which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Many rock bands have received criticism for maintaining a stagnant sound across multiple albums. The Strokes, who “discovered” Kings of Leon and invited them on tour in 2005, received negative reviews on its second album, “Room on Fire,” because it sounded as if it were “Is This It” version 2.0. But “Come Around Sundown” is like finding 13 bonus tracks more than two years after purchasing “Only By the Night.” Producer Jacquire King brings his influence to “Come Around Sundown.” He has worked with big-name artists such as Modest Mouse and Tom Waits. The first single off the new album is “Radioactive,” which is just as intoxicating as it sounds. In the all-together-now style fans have come to adore, the three Followill brothers and their cousin do not disappoint by joining together to sing themselves into a passionate and catchy chorus of “It’s in the water, it’s where you came from.”

The songs are a basic set-up, as it has always been: a rolling bass-line of eighth notes and strong octaves, driven by intricate drum beats, a rhythm guitar playing a simple yet catchy riff, the lead ripping off a few high notes to make it pop and lead vocalist Caleb Followill crooning with an endearing southern touch. For those stuck on the electric fence about Kings of Leon because of an extremist hatred for anything resembling country music, avoid the song “Back Down South.” As the title suggests, the lovable kings take the sound down South with a bit of soul and a lot of nostalgic whiskey-talk. However, there aren’t any songs as distinct or radioappealing as “Sex on Fire” or “Revelry” or “Be Somebody,” and certainly nothing as shockingly unique as “Trani” or “Charmer” or “King of the Radio,” it’s still an album fit for kings.

With a crowd ranging from college students to senior citizens, Wooten said any fan of Halloween would be hard pressed to not find something that he could enjoy. Funds raised by the party contribute to providing Thanksgiving meals for underprivileged areas. “In the past we kind of just bought the food for underprivileged families and were not pleased with the process,” Wooten said. “It felt more like we were giving hand-downs than handouts,” This year they will be hosting a dinner with the families so they can eat with, meet and provide families with leftovers following the meal.
