thelantern Two days, two campus robberies
rick scha nz Campus editor firstname.lastname@example.org Two campus robberies in two days: The “church lady bandit” grabbed most of the attention, but a separate “very, very violent” altercation sent one Ohio State Police officer to the hospital. Last week’s bank robbery at the Union has police “keeping an open mind” about the suspect’s gender. Meanwhile, an attempted robbery about 24 hours later escalated when the suspect allegedly resisted arrest after being cornered in the basement of Dreese Hall. The crimes, and their unusual elements, have OSU Police expecting quieter days ahead. “It’s odd. There’s sometimes a string of crime, then all of a sudden, there will be a calm,” Lt. Rick Green of OSU Police said. Green is leading the investigation for OSU Police of the robbery at the U.S. Bank branch at the Ohio Union on Wednesday. At 4:26 p.m., a woman passed the teller a note on a piece of cardboard demanding

The Lantern is running a three-part series on concussions. Today’s story is about prevention. Part two focuses on treatment and part three on Second Impact Syndrome. Gra nt Freki ng and Jimmy ol dha m Lantern reporters email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org The 15-ounce ball crashed into Max Stearns’ face, knocking his head back and rocking his skull. Almost immediately he began to feel dizzy and disoriented. Stearns had been sprinting toward a free ball while playing in a friendly soccer game as preparation for the upcoming fencing season. But a teammate beat him to the spot and blasted the ball in his direction. “I knew where I was, but you feel like everything is going on around you and you’re not really a part of it, you’re just kind of on your own,” said Stearns, a thirdyear at Ohio State. That was Oct. 5, 2009. By May, Stearns had his second concussion. That one also involved a soccer ball smashing into the side of his head. “It was a less dramatic collision, but because I’d had that other concussion already, my
head was more susceptible to having another,” Stearns said. Although national media have latched onto recent concussions among professional football players, doctors warn that all athletes are suscebtible to head injuries. “I have some pediatric patients as young as 7 with concussions and I’ve had adult patients as old as 85,” said Kelsey Logan, medical director of the OSU Sports Concussion Program and an assistant professor of internal medicine and pediatrics at OSU. Rather than treating concussions, which can cause serious long-term problems, doctors would rather see athletes avoid head trauma altogether. One of the best ways to do that, some say, is to wear safer, moremodern equipment. “I think proper equipment when you’re referring to football is imperative,” said Richard Rodenberg, a physician at OSU and Nationwide Children’s Sports Medicine. “They have to be proper-fitting.”

Homecoming king, queen crowned in ‘Shoe Andrea Cha ffin Lantern reporter email@example.com Two students became Ohio State royalty over the weekend, and more than 100,000 people witnessed their coronation. The 2010 OSU homecoming king and queen were announced Saturday before the Buckeyes’ win against Purdue. Adam Gerson became king, and Colleen Miller was crowned queen. Ironically, the king doesn’t receive a crown. But Gerson, a fifth-year in business and psychology, doesn’t mind. “I can live without” the crown, he said. For Gerson, the most memorable moment was singing the Alma Mater in Ohio Stadium after being named king. “Standing on the 50-yard line with Archie (Griffin) and Colleen and singing ‘Carmen Ohio’ was an incredible moment,” he said. Gerson didn’t expect to receive the top honor. “I’ve never been so surprised about anything,” he said. He was eager to see which of his friends would be chosen rather than himself. “I thought, ‘Adam? Well that’s not their name, that’s my name,’” he added. Miller, a fourth-year in nutrition, was equally surprised. “I was completely in shock,” she said. “I was excited just to be on the field.” Miller echoed Gerson’s sentiments about linking arms with fellow candidates and singing “Carmen Ohio” during pre-game. Watching the 100,000-plus fans forming their arms into O-H-I-O together was especially emotional, Miller said. “It choked me up,” she added. “I could feel the music.” The homecoming weekend kicked off with the homecoming parade on Friday, which featured the entire court. Miller loved the excitement, saying, “I think that

campus OSU staircase racer takes on skyscrapers JeNNy FoGle Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Gabriel Kriz doesn’t like running. But dashing up dozens of ﬂights of steps in skyscraper stairwells? Not a problem. The 22-year-old staircase racer and on-again Ohio State student started his racing career in Cleveland in 2006 at the “Tackle the Tower” competition. He placed 29th out of about 1,000 competitors who ran up 42 ﬂoors of the Terminal Tower. Kriz isn’t taking classes at OSU this quarter so he can focus on work — he is a full-time employee at Espress-OH at the Ohio Union — and training for a Jan. 30 race at the Aon Center in Chicago. He said his secret is to climb two steps at a time and use rails to incorporate more than just the lower body. A student in human nutrition and dietetics and a stair racing veteran, Kriz has had time to develop his technique. Growing up in Cleveland, he worked at the OMNI Fitness Club, where friends and colleagues told him about staircase racing. After his debut success in Cleveland, he traveled to Chicago for his next two stair climbing events. In November 2006, he raced up the tallest building in the country, Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower. At age 18, he ran up 103 ﬂoors — a total of 2,109 steps — in 23 minutes and 16 seconds. “When I got to the top of the Sears Tower, I felt so good
after finishing that I felt I could take the elevator down and do it all over again,” he said. “That’s when I knew I wanted to keep doing this.” Nearly two months later, Kriz made the voyage back to Chicago to race up the steps of the Aon Center Building and had his best performance yet. He ran up 80 ﬂoors — 1,643 steps — in a little more than 15 minutes and placed first in his age group. But he didn’t accomplish it without a struggle. “I was getting very tired at the top and I was coughing a lot,” Kriz said. “I was getting a little sick and I was coughing up blood. I thought I would have to stop, but I just kept going.” The race caused a minor knee injury, leading him to take a break from the sport. Therapists told Kriz that he had trained too hard without building up enough muscle in his knee. After treating the injury — and seeking his mother’s approval — he returned to training. This time he is focusing on building muscle strength. “I think he’s approaching (training) differently now,” said Kriz’s mother, Sue. “I’m surprised he’s started it up with such intensity again. It shows me that he missed it.” Keisha Trott, Kriz’s girlfriend, is supportive of the sport but says she would never do it herself. “I’m just like, why would anyone in their right mind want to race up stairs?” said Trott, a third-year in English. “To me it’s kind of weird, but to each his own.”
Kriz does most of his training at the RPAC, using Stairmaster machines and lifting weights. In Cleveland, he has been known to call hotels and ask to run up their stairs. “It makes for some pretty interesting phone calls,” Kriz said. His goal is to be able to run all of the steps between Ohio Stadium’s bleachers. Even with Kriz’s dedication to training, some of his friends and coworkers did not know he participated in the sport. “It wouldn’t surprise me. He seems like he does like, a lot of ridiculous, active things like that,” said Christina Dadurian, a second-year in psychology and Kriz’s colleague at EspressOH. “He would totally be into something obscurely athletic.” Another coworker, Heidi Hamblin, an undecided secondyear, said she did not know about Kriz’s pastime because he doesn’t talk about himself often. Roger Garland, executive chef of the Ohio Union and finisher of a staircase race, heard about Kriz’s hobby and took an interest in it. My wife and I “just walked, but he actually does the running,” Garland said. “I respect how hard it was to do that.” Kriz said his family and friends are supportive but joke about his hobby. “They think I’m crazy, honestly,” he said, laughing. “That’s probably it. They’re like, ‘Why are you doing this to yourself? Why are you trying to hurry up so much?’”

Student Savings Club offers discounts at local businesses aleXa oDoM Lantern reporter email@example.com Because tuition is increasing and because of the struggling economy, Ohio State’s Undergraduate Student Government is giving students a new way to save money. The Student Savings Club, a program that gives students discounts at local businesses through their BuckIDs, is in its first year at OSU. The club is a Chicago-based organization that works with universities nationwide and in Canada to set up discount systems with businesses near campuses. When the Chicago Student Savers Club approached USG president Micah Kamrass, it was Micah’s brother, Jared Kamrass, and USG director of student life Brian Ashton who advocated for the program. “Tuition went up and that can be a burden to students economically,” said Jared, a second-year USG member. “We wanted to find as many ways as possible to help students offset the costs. “There’s only an upside for students. If they don’t use it, they’re not losing money. We at least wanted to make sure the option was available.” Differing from programs such as BuckID Merchant, which gives students discounts at select businesses each month, the Student Savings Club extends throughout the year, and businesses don’t need to renew membership. The Student Savings Club website shows all the available discounts at involved businesses. A majority of the participating businesses at OSU are restaurants. Deals include 20 percent discounts from Adriatico’s New York Style Pizza, a free beverage for customers who buy a sandwich at Phat Wraps and 50 percent discounts on meals bought weekdays between 2 and 4 p.m. at Mad Mex. Walmart, iTunes and Footlocker are also a part of the program. Jared said USG plans to expand the program by inviting 300 to 400
more businesses. He said he is confident they will participate. “Businesses are eager to help because it increases their traffic,” Jared said. Jarrad Bloom, manager of Mad Mex, said OSU students account for most of Mad Mex’s business. Bloom said Mad Mex often gets an afternoon rush because of the discount. It isn’t likely that on-campus business will be involved in the program because they already provide discounts to students with BuckIDs, Jared kamrass Jared said. Pat Moriarty, president and founder of Collegiate Services and the Student Savings Club, said businesses are hesitant to make the program available to faculty and staff. “Businesses don’t mind giving discounts to students. They don’t always want to give discounts to everybody, though,” Moriarty said. Mad Mex is one of the few that offers discounts to faculty and staff. Moriarty said he hopes the program will change the way people spend. “We want everyone to save $2,000” per year, Moriarty said, adding, “Save is the new spend.”

Coaches’ modiﬁcations to equipment could eliminate beneﬁts, Riddell exec said The majority of football helmets used on the professional and collegiate levels are built and sold by Riddell. The Buckeyes, among other college football programs, use the Riddell Revolution helmets. The company, based in Elyria, Ohio, has recently been monitoring several injury-reporting databases. “Laboratory recreations of on-field collisions, analysis of player injury data, rigorous laboratory testing of helmet design iterations, and field testing with feedback from players, coaches and medical staff are all part of developing more protective helmets,” said Thad Ide, vice president of research and development for Riddell, in an e-mail. Rodenberg said some coaches use the equipment wrong, eliminating the benefits of the technology. “They have these new air bladder helmets, and some of the coaches will pump them up as rock-solid so they can get them to fit the kids,” Rodenberg said. “It defeats the purpose of that air bladder. It’s supposed to cushion, not be rock-solid, so proper-fitting equipment is imperative.” Along with officials at the National Football League — who declared last week that players can be suspended for helmet-to-helmet hits — others in sports medicine are urging game officials to crack down on dangerous plays. “With head-to-head contact, we work with the officials, and there’s a lot of that being emphasized this year on those types of hits,” said Doug Calland, head athletic trainer at OSU and head football athletic trainer. “You probably noticed that they tend to call those penalties much more quickly than they have in the past.” Another potential safety net involves proper training and coaching techniques.

WiredOut store robbed day after Union robbery money. Although no weapon was visible, the note indicated that the woman was armed, according to the FBI. After the teller turned over an undisclosed amount of cash, the robber ﬂed. Tracy Stuck, director of the Union, said in an e-mail that the Union, which houses a public safety substation, has emergency plans for “everything from fire evacuations to things like this robbery.” She said the robbery was a reminder that the Union staff members need to review and inform each other of those plans. Overall, she said she was pleased with how the Union staff, police and bank staff handled the incident. Robberies “are a part of the tellers’ training. They were well-prepared,” said Lisa Clark, assistant vice president of U.S. Bancorp media relations. Green said the teller did the right thing by giving the robber the money. Police would not say how much money the robber stole, saying the crime is still under investigation. “The teller didn’t escalate the situation — she did well,” Green said. “Their job is to comply, then it is our job to catch the suspect as soon as possible.” The robber was last seen heading toward the Ohio Union North Garage, where OSU Police quickly converged and escorted cars out of the garage and searched for the suspect. An officer armed with a shotgun stopped a female driver at the garage exit but eventually allowed her to pass. Meanwhile, the FBI closed the U.S. Bank branch to gather comments from the teller and find out how much money was missing. No one was harmed and no students were in the bank at the time of the
robbery, said David Wiseley, associate director of the Union. “We aren’t going to stop 100 percent of crime. It’s theoretically impossible,” Wiseley said, “We just have to do our best at protecting those who could be harmed.” The suspect, who FBI described as 5-feet-5inches with a medium build and in her late 30s, is thought to be the “church lady bandit.” The woman has been linked to six robberies since January 2006. Police said they are “keeping an open mind” about the sex of the robber, whose signature costume is a curly wig, red-rimmed glasses and layers of dress clothes that can be removed easily. “But all the information we have points to the suspect being a female,” Green said. He said one detective is working full-time on the case and four others are helping. The FBI and Columbus Police are also working on the case. “I have a really good feeling that we’re going to get this one,” Green said. Police have received numerous tips through Crime Stoppers, Green said. Still, he asked anyone with information to call OSU Police or report anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers or the local FBI office. At approximately 7 p.m. the day after the Union robbery, Joseph Gould walked into WiredOut, a tech store in the Central Classroom Building, maced employees and ran out with an undisclosed number of iMac computers, police said. Employees called 911 and chased Gould, who hid in the basement of Dreese Hall. OSU Police confronted him there, and he became “very, very violent,” said OSU Police Chief Paul Denton, adding that confrontation landed one OSU officer in the hospital with a “badly hurt hand.” The officer was treated at OSU Medical Center and released. Gould was arrested and is charged with two counts of assaulting an officer, robbery and resisting arrest.

Homecoming from 1A
Parade theme celebrated OSU’s diversity was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done.” The homecoming parade theme was “A Buckeye World.” Adam Burden, coordinator of student involvement at the Ohio Union, said the theme was meant to celebrate OSU’s diversity and international involvement. More than 70 parade entries were expected to march, including one from Block “O” showing Brutus riding a magic carpet in the sky. Committee of 88, a student organization comprised of
representatives from each of Ohio’s counties, entered a ﬂoat symbolizing the counties by including cityscapes and cornfields, Burden said. Along the parade route were four grandstand areas featuring CD 101, Scarlet and Gray Radio, Buckeye Ag Radio Network and Coca-Cola. Local celebrities such as OSU President E. Gordon Gee, Miss Ohio and Archie Griffin made appearances. The parade began at 6 p.m. at the Ohio Stadium and marched east on Woodruff Avenue, south on High Street, west on 12th Avenue and ended at the South Oval with the homecoming pep rally. The pep rally included
appearances from coach Jim Tressel, the football captains, cheerleaders, Brutus and the marching band. The goal of the pep rally was to get “fired up,” Burden said. During the rally, Gee mentioned that the Princeton Review selected OSU as having the most obnoxious fans. “I love every one of you here because we are the most spirited group of people in America,” Gee said. “We love being the most obnoxious people in America.” Jami Jurich contributed to this story.
Alumni reunite to honor former campus leader reBecc a kiNG Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org More than 100 alumni gathered to share memories, sift through old photos and tell stories Thursday during the Greek and campus leaders reunion at the Union. The event honored Barbie Tootle, the coordinator of the Office of Greek Affairs in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Tootle was popular among attendees, who described her as a mentor and friend. Nancy McNelis, former Greek Week committee chair, and Craig Little, former Phi Kappa Tau president, said Tootle was inﬂuential and helped students at Ohio State. “One hundred people in that room have been changed because of Barbie,” McNelis said. She described Tootle as a guide who encouraged students to achieve their goals, even if they seemed out of reach. Little added that he would not be where he is today if it were not for Tootle. “To come back for an event to see (Tootle) and to honor friends was a win-win.” Little said. Jim Curphey, an alumnus who helped plan the reunion, said that he thought the event was a success. “The remarks were very moving, and we have something to build on here,” he said.
“It has absolutely been proven that skill level can help to decrease the risk of certain injuries, and concussions are one of them,” Logan said. “The lower-skilled athletes tend to be at higher risk for concussions. So we need to make sure that the athletes are ready to play their position, whatever it is in whatever sport, and that they are ready for whatever comes.” The Ohio High School Athletic Association is also working to prevent head injuries. This season, the association implemented the policies of the National Federation of State High School Associations. Anyone with concussion symptoms is required to leave games immediately and must be cleared by a doctor before playing again. Although the association bears responsibility for protecting local athletes, some members of Congress are fighting for protection on a national level. One leader in that effort is Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., who introduced the Protecting Student Athletes from Concussions Act, which the NFL endorsed. Miller is the chairman of the Education and Labor Committee. Aaron Albright, deputy communications director for the Education and Labor committee, said the bill is modeled after recent laws passed in Washington, Oregon and other states to reduce the risk of concussions in youth sports. “The bill would help make sports safer for student athletes by asking school districts to implement a concussion safety and management plan,” Albright said in an e-mail. The bill is intended to change sports culture by informing people of the dangers associated with concussions. “The legislation aims to educate students, parents and school personnel about the dangers of concussions and how to recognize the injury,” Albright said. “Too often, athletes don’t recognize concussions for the serious brain injuries they are.” Still, football tends to breed a “tough guy” mantra that encourages players to play through the pain and keep injury symptoms to themselves.
There are plans to make the Greek and campus leaders alumni reunion an annual event. “The reason to get together is because we just love being together,” Tootle said. The reunion is not the only event that Curphey has organized with fellow alumni to recognize Tootle. In 2007, he helped coordinate the naming of the “Barbie Tootle” room in the Ohio Union. To collect enough money for the room, nestled in a corner on the third ﬂoor, Curphey asked alumni for donations. “We reached out to former Greek leaders and student leaders during her years at Ohio State to see whether they would be interested in contributing,” Curphey said. Asking was all it took to get people to donate, he said. “In my wildest dreams, I would never have expected that or thought it would happen, and then there it was,” Tootle said about the room being donated in her honor. “I accepted the room and dedicated it to all of the many volunteer advisers and student affairs professionals who work with students every day to try to make sure they have a great experience.” Tootle said he still believes students can make a difference at OSU. “Ohio State is a very big place and it can gobble you up, or you can grab it by the horns,” Tootle said. “Challenge yourself to be your very best.”
“Back in the day, those of us that played, when we got concussions we called them dings,” said Gene Smith, associate vice president and director of athletics at OSU. “We would shake it off, go back in and play. “I had two in my life. I remember them specifically, and I know there are guys who had more than that. So when they’re 60, 70 years old I think they’re going to have problems. So I’m glad that someone’s (the NFL) doing something about it.” Players who stay in the game after head hits “worry me the most,” Smith said. “Guys who get knocked out, they’re easy. We know we can take them out, and they’re done. It’s those ones that get that kind of foggy concussion. They know enough to not come out. That scares me.” The ruling from the NFL last week has upset players across the league. Buckeye wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher, who suffered a concussion in a 2008 contest against Wisconsin, understands where the frustration comes from. “Obviously from my perspective, I mean I’m all about protecting defenseless players,” Sanzenbacher said. “But at the same time, the league asks you, and I guess in college they ask you too, hit them hard but don’t hurt them. So where is the line drawn?” Suspensions might help deter athletes from head hunting, but Calland said the best defense involves teaching student athletes about the dangers of a concussion. “Education is probably the best prevention method,” he said. “We’ve met with virtually all of our student athletes. That’s probably been the biggest help in this area.” Stearns has since returned to the fencing team, competing in both the NCAA Tournament and international competition. But he isn’t out of the woods yet. “Every once in a while, I’ll still feel something,” he said. “Whenever I have (that feeling), it’s suggested that I take a break and let myself rest.”

student voice Obama rally likely didn’t change minds Campus appeared to be dressed in blue in 2008, but will students care about Dems if Obama isn’t on ballot? LANTERN Columnist
Everyone is talking about the enthusiasm gap in politics today. Conventional wisdom says Republicans will swarm the voting booth and leave Democrat voters choking on their dust. We will find out Nov. 2, but perhaps the biggest thing hurting Democrats this fall is the enthusiasm gap on college campuses. The gap is not necessarily between two parties but between two years, 2008 and 2010. In 2008, there was more blue on BRAD MILLER Ohio State’s campus than I thought email@example.com was legally permitted. The Oval was packed every day with individuals carrying clipboards begging students to register to vote. Sidewalks were covered in 3 inches of chalk, and bulletin boards for miles were littered with “Hope-Change-Yes We Can” jargon. Things are a little different now. Someone can stroll across the Oval without being inundated with anything related to the election. Campus is almost completely free of political nuisances. Some people are saying the drop-off in enthusiasm is because this is a midterm election. And for the most part, they would be right. When college students hear the word “midterm,” they run away in terror. But the vibe generated two years ago made me believe that most students on campus would devote their entire lives to Obama’s mission. But that appears not to be the case. His visit to campus last week caused quite a stir, but it was not overwhelmingly significant. Any president would have drawn a huge crowd. The fact that a Democrat attracted 35,000 people to a free event on a liberal campus is not a shocker, nor is it a backbreaker for the GOP. That crowd mostly was a result of people falling in love with a man. It was not based on affection toward a cause. Otherwise, people wouldn’t have groaned when Gov. Ted Strickland was introduced. The attendees were there because they enjoy hearing tired, worn-out, car-in-ditch metaphors. In fact, the candidates accompanying Obama would have done themselves a favor had they limited their speeches to a couple short sentences. They should have said: “Vote Democrat. If not for me, then for Obama.” If that crowd was any reflection of 2008, those words would have caused a whole slew of young, impressionable leftists to tighten their bright blue capes and teleport to the nearest voting booth. Instead,

Ohio State Police estimated that 35,000 people attended a rally Oct. 17 on the Oval featuring President Barack Obama and state Democrats. Mary Jo Kilroy, Lee Fisher and Strickland brought angst and annoyance to the otherwise excitable crowd. But even Obama realizes that he can no longer rely solely on himself to turn out large numbers. In 2008, one of Obama’s cigarette butts would have attracted 35,000 admirers. This year, he needed the help of wife Michelle and non-wife John Legend.
The biggest success of the president’s visit probably was to remind people that there is an election looming. In the end, I think his effort will fall short. The overwhelming majority there that was going to vote would vote “D” regardless. But I do not think he really inspired many nonvoters suddenly to fill out a ballot. Why should they? They can’t vote for Obama again until 2012.
Bucks teem with talent, but ‘Boom’ alone gets nickname? LANTERN Columnist
Question: What happened to the nickname? Here we sit atop an embarrassment of riches — the university with the most collegiate sports in all the NCAA — and all we have to show for it is Daniel “Boom” Herron. Come on. We can do better. Is Chris Berman of ESPN fame the only one who can come up with a good nickname? He is talented, don’t get me wrong: Mike “you’re in-good-hands-with” Alstott, Albert “Winnie the” Pujols, Jose “can you AUSTIN OWENS see” Canseco, and my favorite, firstname.lastname@example.org Scott “Supercalifragilisticexpiali” Brosius. But surely we can come up with some for our athletes. Take the football team for example. Dozens of talented young men with only one recognized nickname among the lot: “Boom.” Tsk tsk tsk. We have an other-worldly receiver named Dane Sanzenbacher — are you kidding me? “The Catchinator” Dane “Stickum” Sanzenbacher! Another receiver so good the Badgers put two guys on him: “DeVious” DeVier Posey. How about Cameron “Hide you’re quarterbacks, hide your running backs and hide your coaches too because he’s tackling everyone out here” Heyward? It’s long, but he’s a big guy. It would fit on his jersey. Other ideas include: Jake “Rolling” Stoneburner, Andrew Sweat “The Technique,” Tyler “Respawning in 3 … 2 … 1” Moeller and “Oh S---!
How about Cameron ‘Hide you’re quarterbacks, hide your running backs and hide your coaches too because he’s tackling everyone out here’ Heyward?
It’s:” Brian Rolle. You get the idea. They don’t all have to be Bermanisms but something unique that highlights our athlete’s abilities. We have stellar athletes in other sports, too. Gymnast Brandon “For the” Wynn is about to begin competition with the U.S. National Team at the 2010 World Artistic Championships. OSU Women’s Volleyball star Kelli “Sets the” Barhorst was just named Big Ten Player of the Week. Nicknames are morale boosters. You hear the deafening “BOOOOOM” in the ‘Shoe when Herron breaks a big one. When the team travels, and announcers have to point out that “they’re not booing, folks,” that is a staple of the Buckeye nation. We need more of that. I believe merit is a hallmark of a good nickname. But if that’s the case, why does Archie “too-damn-fast-for-a-nickname” Griffin not have one? If any player in college football history should have a nickname, it’s the only two-time Heisman trophy winner. Eddie George, Troy Smith, Terry Glenn, Chris Spielman — where are their nicknames? We have the talent and the opportunity, so let’s be creative and give our players in all sports good, wholesome nicknames that will last generations and show that we really are the best damn fans in the land.

Ohio State tailback Dan ‘Boom’ Herron runs through an open gap against Purdue on Saturday. OSU won 49-0.
Much is hinged on Nov. 2 Letter to the editor C. DAVIS BUENGER OSU Math Department email@example.com
Will you vote Nov. 2? Tell us at
The Nov. 2 election is just two weeks away and each of us has a choice. We can either vote or stay home, but with either choice we send a message. Voting expresses your opinion and shows interest in your future. Not voting, however, is tantamount to saying you don’t care, that either choice is as good as the other. If common every day citizens don’t demonstrate interest through voting, we run the risk of extremists or flawed candidates winning the day. Without voting, we leave it to others to make important decisions. Congress passed many bills last session (including the TARP, the stimulus, Cash for Clunkers, the Health Care bill, and Cap and Trade) that will greatly affect our lives. TARP and the stimulus both hugely impacted the economic climate and could have saved us from a second great depression (we will never know how bad it could have been),
but each came with a large price tag that will need to be paid down eventually. Cash for Clunkers allowed thousands of people to upgrade their automobiles, making the American roads safer and more fuel-efficient. The Health Care bill and Cap and Trade could drastically change each of their respected industries. These issues matter and will change our lives. We are not without choice though. On the issues presented in this election, a clear distinction between the two parties exists. Real choice is before us. With our vote, we express whether Democratic policies like the Health Care bill should continue and whether Cap and Trade should be instituted. With our vote, we can indicate our preference between the cutting the budget or cutting education. We can stand up and make a choice or we can sit on the sidelines and accept whichever outcome happens. As for me, I don’t want to be a bench warmer. I choose to play the game.

She has rubbed elbows with the likes of Miranda Lambert and Emmylou Harris, spent three days on Willie Nelson’s tour bus and calls Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee her friend. Marshall Chapman, a Nashville singer/songwriter and author, visited OSU on Friday to sing a few songs from her new album, “Big Lonesome,” and to read excerpts from her second book, “They Came to Nashville,” before riding with Gee in the homecoming parade. Gee, who met Chapman while serving as chancellor of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, introduced his friend to the intimate crowd that gathered at the Wexner Center. “You’re going to hear the most fabulous person on the face of the earth right now,” Gee said. “I will readily admit she’s a friend of mine.” Chapman sang a few songs from her most recent album, which she said was inspired by the death of fellow singer/songwriter Tim Krekel. Krekel, who passed away from cancer in 2009, was Chapman’s friend and collaborator. “I wrote this song on the plane to Mexico,” Chapman said before singing a song titled “Down to Mexico.” She and Krekel had planned on playing gigs there together, but after Krekel’s death, Chapman went alone. Chapman spent most of her visit talking about the creation of “They Came to Nashville,” a book that shares the stories of performers who gave up everything for a chance of fame in “Music City,” USA. The book, which is published by the Country Music Hall of Fame, tells the stories behind artists such as Kris Kristofferson, Nelson and Lambert. “The book talks about how (the artists) came to Nashville and the first night they spent there,” Chris Fletcher, Chapman’s husband, said during an interview with The Lantern. Despite the artists’ standing, most of those featured in the book got off to a rough start. “Willie (Nelson)’s first night in Nashville, he performed at Tootsie’s,” Fletcher said. “He was so terrified after that, he got drunk and went out and laid in the middle of Broadway, praying that he would get hit by a car.” Chapman met each artist featured in the book for face-to-face interviews, which proved to be a difficult feat despite her history in the music business. “Getting the interview with Willie (Nelson) could have made a book by itself,” Chapman said. After a couple of e-mails and phone calls, however, Chapman got access to the country performer. In a voicemail message left on her answering machine, Nelson said “Why don’t you just come hang with us on the bus,” Chapman said. “And I thought, ‘Oh, Lord.’”

Musician Marshall Chapman (right) rides with Gordon Gee during the Homecoming Parade on Friday. Chapman spoke at the Wexner Center before the parade. “If I seem a bit tilted up here, it’s because I was on that bus for three days,” Chapman said, laughing. “You don’t have to partake — being on the bus is enough.” Chapman then proceeded to sing “Riding with Willie,” a song she began to write on the tour bus. “I find the beginning of this song to be a little cosmic — different from my usual stuff,” Chapman said. “Probably because I wrote the beginning of it on the bus.” “Big Lonesome,” which has 11 tracks, is Chapman’s 12th album. Besides her own songs, Chapman has written songs that have been recorded by the likes of Jimmy Buffett, Wynonna and Emmylou Harris. She has toured for several years on her own and has also opened for acts such as Buffett, Jerry Lee Lewis and The Ramones. “They Came to Nashville” is Chapman’s second book. Her first book, titled “Goodbye, Little Rock and Roller,” was a 2004 Southern Book Critics Circle Award finalist and a Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance bestseller. “Marshall has become a great commentator on country music,” Gee said. Chapman’s talents aren’t limited to music and writing, however. She plays the role of a road manager in an upcoming film, titled “Country
Strong.” The film, which will be released in theaters in January 2011, features Tim McGraw, Gwyneth Paltrow and Garret Hedlund. Although it was her first role in a movie, Chapman was picked out of 36 actresses who auditioned for the character – a no-nonsense, foulmouthed woman in her late-50s. Those who knew Marshall knew she would be perfect for the part. “They said, ‘Oh hell, just call Marshall — she won’t even have to act,” Fletcher said. Chapman, who said she had never even acted in a school play before, was quickly thrown into the big leagues of the movie business. “Her first day on the set was her and Gwyneth Paltrow in a hotel room together,” Fletcher said. “It’s like, ‘OK, this is real now.’” Chapman relates her style of music to old-style country. She said commercial country — the kind usually played on the radio — doesn’t interest her. She appreciates music with a meaning. “I’ve heard some rap that’s had a strong message,” she said. “But I have to have a couple cups of coffee to appreciate that.” “They Came to Nashville” is available online and in bookstores. The release of “Big Lonesome” is Tuesday.
Dayglow party sold-out and drenched in neon paints
Giov anna Cov arr ubias Lantern reporter email@example.com Described as “The World’s Largest Paint Party,” Dayglow brought a new element to the dance floor on Friday — 3-D glasses. Dayglow started in Florida in 2006 as a college tradition, but the party experience was recently heightened with 3-D. “The 3-D glasses made it look cool,” said Egon Bohler, a second-year in international business and first-time Dayglow attendee. There was no need for them, however, as gallons of paint sprayed from air tubes and spilled from plastic paint containers into a pit of dancers who jumped, bumped and swayed to the sounds of disc jockeyss David Solano, Alexandre Marc and DJ AXCESS. The event, which was originally scheduled to take place at the Bar of Modern Art, was relocated on Oct. 16. Because of the size of the event, the event was moved to The Mansion, located on West Main Street. The sold-out venue accommodated a mostly younger audience.
People were forced to sway with the crowd as full-body contact on all sides was inevitable. “Too many tickets were sold,” Bohler said. “It was hard to get anywhere in the place.” This was a sentiment shared by many who groaned as they struggled to get out of the hot pit to a cooler place. “I pretty much got harassed on the dance floor,” said Jack Herrera, a second-year in civil engineering and first-time attendee. The discomfort was not enough to damper his opinion of the paint experience, though. Near the end of the night, a man on stilts gave a performance. He was dressed in black pants, a tight, red, glimmering spandex shirt that covered his head and an “Iron Man” mask covering his face. With glow-in-the-dark paint and popular tunes, the party went on strong until the end. Water was free at the bar, and the bartenders sprayed some people with water to rinse them off throughout the night. Most people left with a glowing smile on their faces.

Talk about a contrast in ÿrsthalf performance. One week after trailing Wisconsin 21-3 at the break before falling as the No. 1 team in the nation, Ohio State racked up 42 points and 415 yards of offense before intermission against Purdue on Saturday. The Buckeyes (7-1, 3-1) ÿnished off the Boilermakers (4-3, 2-1) with ease, winning 49-0, a drastic turnaround from the teams’ meeting a year ago, when an unranked Purdue squad shocked OSU. “The only thing after a tough loss is to come back with a win,” senior receiver Dane Sanzenbacher said. “I’ve never been a part of this team where we had to come off a loss straight into a team that beat us last year. We all had a lot of emotions coming into the game. Not a lot needed to be said. Everyone was ready.” OSU outgained Purdue by 371 yards before halftime, racking up a 42-0 lead at the break. In all, the Buckeyes gained 489 total yards while holding Purdue to 118.

A week after the Ohio State offense had a slow start Dan ‘Boom’ Herron against Wisconsin, running back Dan Rushes 16 “Boom” Herron made Yards 74 sure the team got going early Saturday TD 2 against Purdue. “We deÿnitely wanted to get out there, get on top and get some momentum,” Herron said. “It was an honor to carry the load on the ÿrst drive.” The Buckeyes handed the ball to Herron on their ÿrst ÿve plays from scrimmage, piling up 45 yards and a touchdown for a 7-0 OSU lead. “I think ‘Boom’ got us started, which ‘Boom’ has that ability to electrify the huddle and the room when he walks in it,” coach Jim Tressel said. Fullback Zach Boren indicated the success was not because of diversity of play selection. The team ran only two different plays on that drive, he said.

What a difference a year makes. The last meeting between Ohio State and Purdue left the Buckeyes stunned and the Boilermakers euphoric. Upset 26-18 by underdog Purdue, OSU left West Lafayette, Ind., a year ago shocked and embarrassed. At the time, the loss was devastating. One year later, it was motivating. The OSU coaching staff hung reminders of last season’s uninspiring effort this week to ensure its team didn’t forget the debacle. “You walk in the building, the hallway, locker room, weight room, anywhere you can think of it was there,” senior offensive lineman Justin Boren said. … “After we lost I think the headline was ‘Train Wreck’ or something and it just reminded us that we have to take care of business.” On Saturday, it appeared as though the coaches’ ploy worked. This year’s Buckeye squad refused to fall victim to Purdue. They were ready. Dominating their opponent in every facet of the game, the Buckeyes thrashed Purdue 49-0. “I’ve never been a part of this team where we had to come off a loss straight into a team that beat us last year,” senior captain Dane Sanzenbacher said. “We all had a lot of emotions coming into the

We’re spoiled. Most weeks, Ohio State is pegged to obliterate its Big Ten adversary. Most weeks, OSU meets those expectations. But in becoming accustomed to following the big ÿsh in a somewhat shallow Big Ten pond, we lose sight of what makes sports so compelling. When was the last time the Buckeyes pulled a true “upset”? The last time OSU didn’t play the role of Goliath, scarlet-clad fans were celebrating a national championship in Tempe, Ariz., eight years ago. Remember how magical the 2002 season was? Gut-wrenching wins against Cincinnati, Wisconsin, Penn State, Illinois and Michigan fueled anti-Buckeye sentiment leading up to the double-overtime thriller against Miami (Fla.). Of course the crystal-footballclinching upset stands out the most. But none of that would have been possible without eking out so many close calls during an unforgettable season. Buckeye Nation wasn’t used to championship aspirations in 2002, Jim Tressel’s second year at the helm. Now, anything less than 12 wins and a BCS bowl game victory is considered a disappointment and attracts “Tressel can’t win big games” banter. We seem to dispose of the moments along the way, only stashing the end results in our memory banks. One loss at Wisconsin and this season is thrown by the wayside. Barring a chaotic reshuf° ing atop the BCS standings, we’ll look back at the 2010 campaign and recall John Clay running all over the OSU defense. We won’t remember that same unit picking off Miami quarterback Jacory Harris four times (and it could have been several more). We’ll forget about

Senior Lighty sees similarities between ‘Super Six,’ ‘Thad Five’ JOSHUA A. DAVIDSON For The Lantern firstname.lastname@example.org When David Lighty stepped onto campus in 2006, he was part of a high-proÿle freshman class. Now, as a ÿfth-year senior, Lighty sees some similarities between his class and this year’s freshmen. “With the class they have coming in and the number they have coming in, it’s pretty much just like my freshman year,” Lighty said. “It’s happening all over again.” Deemed the “Super Six,” this year’s freshman class is drawing comparisons to the class of ‘06. That year, then-freshmen Greg Oden, Mike Conley Jr., Daequan Cook and Lighty helped the Buckeyes to a National Championship appearance. The hype that surrounded
Oden and company is again in Columbus. Coach Thad Matta compared Oden, Conley Jr. and Cook to this freshman class, because many of them have played more than 200 games together throughout high school and Amateur Athletic Union basketball. That familiarity showed and will likely help this year’s class in the early going. This class also allows Matta to have more depth than last year’s six- or seven-man rotation. “One of the coaches said to me the other day, ‘It’s exciting that all 10 guys get along on the court,’” Matta said. “And that’s the exciting thing. I think we can have a deeper bench.” In the 2006-07 season, the Buckeyes went nine deep, which proved beneÿcial in both the Big Ten and NCAA tournaments. There are even more
similarities when comparing the individual players of each class. Oden was Indiana’s Mr. Basketball, a McDonald’s All-American and won a state championship his senior year in high school. Freshman Deshaun Thomas earned the same honors playing at Bishop Luers in Fort Wayne, Ind. But Thomas isn’t the most hyped player in his class. That honor goes to fellow All-American Jared Sullinger. Regarded as one of the premiere freshman in the country, Sullinger is arguably the most high-proÿle freshmen in Columbus since Oden. Thomas might be more comparable to Cook in his ability to create instant offense. Lighty said Thomas is a great shooter and has the ability to take the ball into the post and score. Although it’s not clear if Thomas will work more at forward or guard for the Buckeyes, he has
demonstrated his ability to light up the scoreboard. Point guard Aaron Craft was one of Sullinger’s AAU teammates, like Conley Jr. and Oden were. Matta said he likes what he’s seen from the freshman ball handler. “I don’t think we’ve ever had a freshman come to camp more ready to go physically than he was,” Matta said. “One of the things we’ve asked him to do was work on his ability to knock down shots, and he’s shown his ability to do that. We’ve always liked his defense.” With the classes showing many similarities, there are expectations to match. But that doesn’t seem to bother Lighty and his teammates. “I started off with a national championship” appearance, Lighty said. “So hopefully we can end that way.”

Win from 1B
Buckeyes play at Minnesota on Saturday “We didn’t make some of the errors that we made a week ago, and our opponent didn’t make some of the plays that our opponent did a week ago,” coach Jim Tressel said after the game. Running back Dan “Boom” Herron continued to prove his worth as the starting running back, carrying the ball 16 times for 75 yards. He scored a pair of ÿrst-quarter touchdowns. On OSU’s opening drive, Herron toted the ball on all ÿve plays, gaining 45 yards and punching in the game’s ÿrst score from 11 yards out. “I think ‘Boom’ got us started, which ‘Boom’ has that ability to electrify the huddle and the room when he walks in it,” Tressel said. One week after allowing 184 rushing yards to the Badgers, OSU limited Purdue to 28 yards on the ground. Purdue’s passing attack wasn’t much better. Redshirt freshman quarterback Rob Henry completed just 9 of 18 passes for 59 yards and an interception before leaving in the third quarter with an injury. His replacement, true freshman Sean Robinson, completed 6 of 10 pass attempts for 30 yards and an interception. “To get a shutout against a team that had a quarterback that
was able to run the ball and was able to shut him out from running the ball and trying to throw the ball, it was just great,” senior linebacker Brian Rolle said. “We had to keep our foot on the pedal, and the guys did that.” Sophomore Jordan Hall capped a 91-yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown to give the Buckeyes a 21-0 advantage in the ÿrst quarter. Hall gained 13 yards on eight carries. As a team, OSU rushed 48 times for 185 yards. Nine players carried the ball for the Buckeyes. “When you can run, a lot can work because all of a sudden the pass rush, unless they blitz, is not going to be quite as bad,” Tressel said. The Boilermakers held OSU to 66 rushing yards on 28 carries a year ago, with only quarterback Terrelle Pryor and running back Brandon Saine carrying the ball. Purdue forced Pryor into four turnovers last year in West Lafayette, Ind. On Saturday, the junior threw for 270 yards and three touchdowns before halftime. In the last ÿve minutes of the ÿrst half, OSU doubled its lead from 21-0 to 42-0. Pryor found receiver DeVier Posey for a 22-yard score, then minutes later connected Sanzenbacher on a 7-yard touchdown. “We talked this week about starting off fast,” Saine said. “Last week, we got behind and this week we needed to change the pace. We went out, tried to execute, and things went our way.”

Ohio State outgained Purdue by nearly 400 total yards game. Not a lot needed to be said. Everyone was ready.” Looking to avoid a repeat performance, the Buckeyes sprinted to a 42-0 halftime advantage. “It was deÿnitely something that we remembered, and we deÿnitely didn’t want to let that happen to us again,” safety Orhian Johnson said of last year’s loss. “We felt like we needed to go out there and just play our game and just get after them early.” OSU’s 76 yards on the ground in the ÿrst stanza alone were 10 more than the Buckeyes had in all of last year’s contest combined. Compiling almost triple the rushing yards from a year ago and outgaining the Boilermakers 489-118, the Buckeyes did everything they could to erase the unpleasant memories from a year ago.
Sanzenbacher ÿnished with four catches for 86 yards. Posey caught four passes for 84 yards. “They weren’t open, they were wide open,” Purdue coach Danny Hope said. Following an interception by safety Orhian Johnson, freshman receiver Corey Brown hauled in the ÿrst touchdown reception of his career, making a leaping grab above a pair of defenders. “That was nice seeing him go up in the air,” Tressel said. “That’s the kind of thing you have to have at the goal line.” Pryor was far from perfect, however. He threw a ÿrst-half interception when attempting to force a pass into double coverage inside the Purdue red zone. The signal-caller played two series in the third quarter, throwing just one pass, for an interception. Pryor has thrown 18 touchdowns and six interceptions this season. OSU added its ÿnal touchdown in the fourth quarter when backup quarterback Joe Bauserman found Spencer Smith for a 23-yard touchdown. Tressel hinted that the loss to Wisconsin provided OSU with more motivation than last year’s defeat at Purdue. “Most recent misery probably trumps past misery,” he said. “But I don’t have any empirical data for that.” The Buckeyes head to the Twin Cities for a meeting with Big Ten bottom-feeder Minnesota on Saturday.
And recording nine tackles for losses while pitching its ÿrst shutout of the year, the silver bullet defense avenged its subpar performance at Purdue a year ago as well. “We try to make every game a statement game,” safety Jermale Hines said. “When you’re a Buckeye, you tend to have a lot of pressure on you because people expect you to win every game. We didn’t get it done last year but we came together as a team, as a coaching staff and fought hard.” Although the Buckeyes had extra motivation suffering their ÿrst loss of the year a week ago, quarterback Terrelle Pryor said it was the previous Purdue game that had him ÿred up. “I think Purdue last year was a lot more motivation than last week,” Pryor said. “I think Purdue last year really motivated us because they really kicked our butts up and down the ÿeld the whole game.” Fortunately for the Bucks, it was them doing the butt-kicking this time around.

Boom from 1B
Herron has led OSU in carries in each of the last ﬁve games
“It was good play-calling,” Boren said. “We were going for it, and it worked.” Herron also liked the decision-making. “I think guys just kind of got in the groove of things, running the same play,” he said. “You know, if it works, we are going to keep on running it.” After their second drive saw three pass plays result in an OSU punt, the Buckeyes returned to the run game on their third possession. It paid off, as Herron once again found the end zone. He ÿnished the day with 16 rushes for 74 yards and two touchdowns. Establishing the run was essential to success later in the game. “I think our offensive staff just wanted to get kind of a ° ow before we started putting the offensive line in difÿcult situations,” Tressel said. “The fact
that the ° ow then worked gave you a chance to be balanced.” Starting with “the run really helped,” wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher said. “The more we feel comfortable running the ball, the more it helps.” Herron was quick to share the praise for the success on the ground. “I really don’t talk about myself, it’s a team thing,” he said. “I really couldn’t do it without the offensive line over there.” Boren agreed the offensive line was important. “We were coming off the line and hitting someone,” he said. “The offensive line was creating huge holes for us, which … enabled us to get to the next level.” It has been Herron reaching that level more often than not for the Buckeyes, as he has led the team in carries the past ÿve games. But he seemed reluctant to be referred to as the team’s featured runner. “I just try to get guys going and try to be a leader out there,” Herron said. “If that’s what everybody wants to say, I’m the feature back, I’ll take that.”

the offense racking up 73 points against Eastern Michigan, its highest output in 60 years. We take these pieces for granted because of their limited contribution to the overall puzzle. And that snobbish attitude is a direct consequence of being afÿliated with the cream of the college football crop. Look at teams that aren’t habitually in the hunt. Regardless of Missouri’s performance between now and January, the Tigers won’t forget 71,004 fans in black and gold packing onto the ÿeld like sardines after upsetting No. 1 Oklahoma. East Lansing, Mich., is in a green and white utopia. Michigan State is primed for an appearance in a BCS bowl game. Should MSU falter, Sparty can grasp onto memories of a fake-punt-turned-game-winningtouchdown against Notre Dame, along with putting an end to Denard Robinson’s Heisman campaign and a comeback victory at Northwestern, for starters. These teams cherish the position they’re in. Schools such as OSU, Alabama, Florida and Oklahoma can’t relate. Obviously, it’s a privilege to reside in the town of a team that competes for a championship year in and year out. But recognize that it’s much more difÿcult to exceed expectations as the top dog and easier to lose sight of what matters. We get so caught up in the end product that we don’t care if the ends justify the means. Instead, we should covet the means along the way that produce the ends that stick with us forever.
