thelantern OSU opts to change opt-in alert system


The cost of safety

Jami Jurich Editor-in-chief

Ohio State is upgrading its Buckeye Alert emergency text messaging system from the opt-in system it is currently using to one which pulls cell phone numbers automatically from student and faculty databases.

Ohio State is opting to change its opt-in emergency alert text messaging system. Under the old Buckeye Alert system, students, faculty and staff had to register for the safety alert program in order to receive emergency alerts, said Bob Armstrong, director of emergency management at OSU. While the new system will still be optional, Armstrong said OSU will pull cell phone numbers from the student contact information and from the faculty and staff databases. “We’re being a little more aggressive in getting people into the system,” Armstrong said.

Armstrong said the cost of operating the alert system will rise with the upgrade. Under the old system, it cost $20,000 a year to operate the alerts with an additional fee when the system had to be activated. Each time the emergency texts were activated, Armstrong said there was an additional cost of $15,000 to $20,000. Under the upgraded alert system, OSU will pay about $1 to $1.25 per person who receives a text, Armstrong said. There are about 50,000 people enrolled in the system currently, Armstrong said. He said there may be an initial decrease in that number as the upgrade is implemented. “We’re getting rid of a fair number of people who have graduated or retired,” Armstrong said. But once cell phone numbers have

Fickell: Sticking with Miller, for now Thomas Bradley Campus editor “Is Braxton Miller your starting quarterback right now?” “Yeah.” Direct and straight-forward. Head coach Luke Fickell is sticking with his freshman quarterback project. For now. Redshirt senior quarterback Joe Bauserman started the first three games of the season against Akron, Toledo and Miami. After a poor performance in Miami, Fla., Fickell made the decision to start the true freshman quarterback Miller. Miller started, and played the majority of the game against Colorado. Once the game was in wraps, Bauserman came in to finish off the game. On Saturday against Michigan State, Miller took the first snap, but struggled when he was in the game. To start the fourth-quarter down 7-0, Fickell opted to go back to Bauserman for the remainder of the game. After the game on Saturday, Fickell said Miller was his starting quarterback, but that the team needed to evaluate a lot after the 10-7 loss to MSU. “We’re going to take a hard look at it, both the quarterback situations and how you run the football,” Fickell said. “There’s a lot of things we’ve got to do that doesn’t put us in a good situation at times but we know we’ve got to be better.” Bauserman, who accounted for the Buckeyes’ only score on the day, said Miller is still the starting quarterback. “Braxton (Miller) is still the starter. All we can do is go out, practice hard and give it all we can. Then the coaches can decide,” Bauserman said. “As long as everyone is on the same page and knows which one of us is starting, then we can prepare accordingly.” Miller finished the day completing only five passes for a total of 56 yards. He had no touchdowns and threw one interception. “Things were happening fast for him,” Fickell said of his quarterback. “I think maybe he didn’t see the field real well.”

Many college students have heard about, feared and even experienced the dreaded freshman 15. There are a combination of reasons why freshmen put on extra weight during their first year of college. First-year students are subjected to the often unhealthy meal options available at Ohio State’s dining halls. “Typically, dining rooms serve mostly high carbohydrate and high fat diets,” Dr. Kwame Osei, endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism specialist at the OSU Medical Center, said in an email. “These highenergy foods contribute to weight gain obesity in college students.” Between 50 and 60 percent of daily caloric intake should be carbohydrates and 30 to 40 percent should be fat, Osei said in

Karri Benishek, marketing manager of University Residences and Dining Services, said URDS is constantly updating the website with nutrition information to keep students informed. “The easiest way (to lower food calories) is to cut down on the condiments,” Benishek said. “(The chefs) are making it to order and as a guest you have the option to cut out things that aren’t necessarily good for you.” The pesto primavera from the Marketplace more than doubles the recommended daily value of carbohydrate intake and is about the recommended daily value of fat intake. The pasta dish contains 216 percent of the daily value of fat and 94 percent of the daily value of carbohydrates, according to OSU’s dining services website.

college of engineering representative david Tomasko thanks osu General Motors Mentor Kevin storch for the $25,000 check GM donated to ohio state’s ecocAr team at the cAr facility in columbus, ohio, Thursday, sept. 29, 2011.

EcoCAR revs up for another win KAiTlyN lyle Lantern reporter The Ohio State EcoCAR team accepted a $25,000 check from General Motors Thursday afternoon to begin work on their newest eco-friendly vehicle for the EcoCAR 2 Challenge. The check was presented to the team on behalf of GM by Kevin Storch, a GM engineer, but it won’t be the only support the team will receive for their latest endeavor. The OSU EcoCAR team and 14 other collegiate teams will receive engineering and design software, tools and car batteries, among other things from various sponsors of the event, Tyler Joswick, co-outreach coordinator for OSU’s EcoCAR team and former Lantern photo editor, said in an email. OSU’s EcoCAR team announced in June that it won second place overall in a three-year competition, EcoCAR: The Next Challenge, for designing a more eco-friendly vehicle. The EcoCAR 2: Plugging Into the Future challenge is this year’s competition. It is part of Advanced Vehicle Technology Competitions, established by the Department of Energy and General Motors 23 years ago, according to the EcoCAR 2 website. This year’s competition lasts for three-years and includes 15 colleges in the U.S. and Canada. The challenge is to redesign a vehicle so it has better fuel economy and less harmful emissions, while maintaining the vehicle’s original safety standards, according to Katherine Bovee, a second-year graduate student in mechanical engineering and OSU’s EcoCAR engineering team leader. Some of the team members, like Bovee, are returning from the last challenge. But after three years, some faces have changed. “We’ve been training a lot of the undergrad team members to take on a lot of leadership roles of someone who has previously graduated. They learned a lot from last competition and are hoping to really get into it this time and refine those skills that they learned from last time,” Bovee said. The teams will model their design after the

vehicle development process used by GM engineers. One of the main differences between this competition and previous year’s, is that the teams will be given a smaller vehicle to work with, a fourdoor sedan instead of a sport utility vehicle. For the next three years, OSU’s EcoCAR team will be working on a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu. “Historically these competitions have been on SUVs and stuff like that. Stuff with a lot of cargo space, places where you can put things. But the Chevy Malibu, its trunk is massive, so I think we have enough room,” Bovee said. Amanda Hyde, a first-year graduate student in mechanical engineering, agreed. “It’s like Tetris … there’s all these extra components that we’re having to shove into a normal car,” Hyde said. Hyde attended Oklahoma State University for her undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering, but decided to come to Ohio State for graduate school upon seeing the success of programs like EcoCAR. The OSU team placed second overall in the previous EcoCAR challenge for its work on a Chevrolet crossover utility vehicle. Like the previous competition, the EcoCAR 2 challenge will be divided into three phases, one per year. During the first year, the OSU team will propose a design plan for its vehicle. In the second year, the team will receive its vehicle and start physically implementing the design. By the third year, the team will work on preparing the vehicle for a showroom, according to a press release from OSU’s College of Engineering. Also like the previous competition, the OSU team will have a mentor from GM to oversee the project. Storch, who was involved in last year’s competition, will be the team’s mentor for the EcoCAR 2 challenge. Storch said GM had hired around 30 students from the last competition as full-time employees. Bovee said the students do the majority of the work. “The students do all the designs, not on our own, we get a lot of help from our adviser and from Kevin (Storch), our GM mentor, but the ideas originate with us,” Bovee said.

The Ohio State Buckeye Electric Motorcycle Race Team set a new record for electric motorcycles at an East Coast Timing Association meet on Sunday in Maxton, N.C. The BEMRT more than doubled the previously held ECTA record in the altered category of 53 mph with a speed of 112 mph. This was the team’s first competition. BEMRT built the full sportsized electric motorcycle in less than a year since its founding in October 2010 by Sean Ewing, a fifth-year in electrical and computer engineering. Ewing built two motorcycles on his own before forming the team. “This is my final year (at OSU) so I wanted to start this team up,” Ewing said. “There’s been a ton of student interest.” Thirty-five OSU undergraduate and graduate students make up the team, a majority of which are engineering majors, said Holly Henley, a communications program assistant for the Center for Automotive Research. “There are about 15 really dedicated members, graduate and undergraduate, who are out there working all the time,” Henley said. BEMRT, with the help of the Center for Automotive Research, did extensive research on what items would be most cost effective to build the motorcycle. “We’d love the biggest and baddest stuff, but they don’t sell that at Walmart,” Ewing said. All of the motorcycle’s parts were either brand-new or built, including the battery assembled from hundreds of radio-controlled airplane batteries. Donors and sponsors funded the majority of the $200,000 motorcycle, Ewing said.

“We got the money by begging and pleading, getting our name out there,” Ewing said. “(We were) shot down a lot. But still finding those people that wanted to help us out.” Typically, students are not permitted to ride the motorcycle in competitions and can only be considered to ride if they have undergone proper training and have the necessary safety equipment, Ewing said. Jennifer Holt, a graduate student in physics and BEMRT team member, met the qualifications to ride the motorcycle in the competition. In order to ride the electric motorcycle in the competition she had to join the ECTA and complete a series of runs of increasing speeds on another motorcycle, Holt said. “I’ve been riding motorcycles for a very long time just on my own,” Holt said. Holt joined the team at its founding because of her interest

in motorcycles and electric vehicles, having build some of her own, she said. Although Holt was excited by BEMRT’s record-breaking run, she sees room for improvement and noted that higher speed records have been set in the West. Ewing also said there are areas in which the team can advance. “(Breaking the record) was great, I want it to go faster,” Ewing said. “I’m very confident this motorcycle can go 160 to 180 mph. There’s a long way to go.” Marcello Canova, an assistant professor in the College of Engineering and BEMRT’s faculty adviser, has set goals for the team and its record-breaking motorcycle. “We will work on improving the motorcycle,” Canova said. “We would like to beat out our own record, try to push the limits of our technology.”

OSU shifts gears in bike safety eriKA deJolsVAy-BrooKs Lantern reporter A campaign promoting a positive bike culture is rolling onto campus as a resource for students and community members. From January 2006 through December 2010, there were a reported 10,212 accidents involving a vehicle and a bicycle in the state of Ohio, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation. The student group, Bike OSU has started a campaign called “How We Roll” to avoid accidents and to develop a safe atmosphere for bike-riding students. President of Bike OSU, Denis de Verteuil, said this campaign was designed to reach the masses of cyclists around Ohio State’s campus to build confidence in city riding. “(How We Roll will) put more butts on bikes and help cyclists bike smarter,” de Verteuil said. How We Roll kicks off Monday at 6 p.m. at the West Plaza of the Ohio Union. There will be a threehour launch party for the official start of the campaign. Part of the initiative will include bike tours of the city, leaving twice daily from the Ohio Union. Two guides will lead up to six students for a three-hour town of the Short North and Downtown district, de Verteuil said. The tours will also stop at local businesses such as Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and the North Market for free samples and discussions about bike safety. Biking to these places will show that there is


more to see around Columbus than just campus, de Verteuil said. “These local joints are the city of Columbus so it’s great to show them off,” de Verteuil said. Students are welcome to bring their own bikes and helmets so instructors can do a bike check to ensure bikes are ready for city travel. Bikes and helmets will be supplied for those who wish to join but do not own a bike, de Verteuil said. Matthew Cannon, a second-year in allied med and representative for local non-profit Yay Bikes!, offered his advice for safe biking. “Be respectful of other drivers,” Cannon said. Cannon said he understands how difficult it can be to maneuver around the streets of Columbus. He also suggested avoiding high-volume areas on campus and said, “the buses are the scariest part of riding.” The tours are free and there is no reason for students not to learn how to ride correctly, de Verteuil said. De Verteuil said there are several misconceptions when it comes to the relationship between cars and bikes in the city, and through these bike tours riders can learn more about safe-biking behavior. According to How We Roll’s website, Bike OSU is offering free bike lights for riders. The biggest goal of How We Roll, according to de Verteuil, is to teach riders the laws of the road, both on-and-off campus and to avoid behaviors that lead to accidents. “Some cyclists obey laws on the road,” de Verteuil said. “But abandon them while on campus.”

is the smoked turkey with muenster and pesto sandwich available at Marketplace and Kennedy Commons. The sandwich contains 875 calories, 76 percent of the daily value of fat and 21 percent of the daily value of carbohydrates, according to OSU’s dining services website. “I just looked up the calories on it so I’m not allowed to eat it anymore because it’s so bad for you, but it’s delicious,” David said. Teresa Sandoval, a first-year in biomedical engineering, said her favorite campus food item is the margherita pizza from Marketplace. This pizza contains 1084 calories, 56 percent of the daily value of fat and 46 percent of the daily value of carbohydrates. Benishek acknowledges that the portions at Marketplace are large and misleading in name. “Those portion sizes are not meant to be eaten in one sitting,” Benishek said. “They’re actually a double portion.” The language is currently “full portion,” and Benishek said she is working on changing the language to better reflect the actual number of portions in the meal. Some students gave additional reasons for freshman weight gain. “(Students) can eat whenever they want,” David said. “When you’re in high school you’re in school and you can’t eat all day. It’s just really easy to eat all the time.” Al McLean, a first-year in business and member of the men’s ice hockey team, said a change in activity level is another reason students put on extra pounds. “I think it’s (students) first year out of high school so they may not be involved as much. You know going around place to place and being in athletics,” he said. “More downtime means you’re probably going to put on a few more pounds.” Sandoval said she exercises daily to avoid weight gain.

Miller did not have much to say after the game, but did say that this week he will continue to practice hard. Miller said the power of MSU’s defense was one of the reasons for offensive struggles. “Welcome to the Big Ten, Michigan State has one of the best defenses around,” Miller said. While a historic matchup awaits the Scarlet and Gray in Lincoln, Neb., Fickell said he wants his quarterbacks to continue to get better. “We want to see those guys get better. Their confidence level has got to pick up,” Fickell said. “It’s focused on the quarterback, but really we’ve got to focus on the whole entire team.” Fickell said the decision he and the staff makes about quarterback changes is based on the future of the program.

In order for students or faculty to have their phone numbers automatically added to the new Buckeye Alert system, Armstrong said they must be sure to list their cell phone number under the “Cell Phone” heading in their OSU contact information. “If it’s listed under ‘Home Phone,’ it will not be a part of the new system,” he said. Armstrong said the plans to upgrade the Buckeye Alert system have been in the works for about two years. When the current system was first implemented in 2006, Armstrong said, “it was an opt-in program and at the time that was kind of the way to do things.” But he said OSU is always looking to improve the system. “Every year, there’s a group of us that will kind of review … what we can do better,” Armstrong said. During his quarterly editorial board meeting with

students eat at Marketplace dining hall on sunday oct. 2, 2011. “I’m only slightly worried about (the freshman 15) because we live directly across from Kennedy Commons and we’re here nearly every day,” Sandoval said. “But I run every day so it kind of counteracts it.” Campus dining halls do not limit consumers to unhealthy options. Many have salad bars, fruits, vegetables and other low calorie items. Benishek said the luxuries like ice cream and dessert are meant to be enjoyed every once in a while. “At the end of the day it’s really about choice,” Benishek said. David acknowledges some students find it difficult to choose these healthier options. “You can make (campus dining) healthy if you want to. Like (at Kennedy Commons) you can get grilled chicken, salads, stuff like that, but you can get fries and mac and cheese, so you can definitely go that route if you want to. You kind of have to try hard not to,” David said. To avoid the freshman 15, students should reduce caloric intake by making healthier food choices at dining halls and increase exercise, said Osei in the email.

“We make every decision for what’s best for this program. And it’s not on a week-to-week basis,” Fickell said. “We really believe we have to evaluate how we move forward what’s best for the program. There’s no short term.” Fickell said the loss is mostly on the shoulders of the coach and the quarterback, but he said it is a team game. “The blame falls on a lot of times on the quarterback and the head coach, and we understand that,” Fickell said. “But we all know that we’ve all got to get better.” Miller is now 20 of 39 for 291 yards on the season through the air for three touchdowns and two interceptions. Miller also has 39 rushing attempts on the season for 118 yards and has been sacked eight times. The Buckeyes travel to Lincoln, Neb., next week to take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers. The game on Saturday will be Nebraska’s first Big Ten conference home game. It will be an 8 p.m. start televised nationally on ABC.

The Lantern Thursday, President E. Gordon Gee said OSU chose to change the system to make the alerts more effective and efficient. “The purpose is so we can do it quicker and faster, but there was no specific event (leading to the changes in the Buckeye Alert system),” Gee said. “They have new technology that makes it quicker and faster and more immediate.” Janna Robinson, a fourth-year in finance, said she has not received Buckeye Alerts and isn’t sure if she wants to. “I don’t really want them sent to me,” Robinson said. “I guess it depends on how often they are sent ... it costs money. If it’s only occasional, it would be helpful I guess.” While the changes were set to take effect on Sept. 30, Armstrong said his department has “a little bit of leeway” before the switch is entirely completed. Still, he said students and faculty will not see a difference in the systems. “The only difference they will see is that more of them will be informed in an emergency,” Armstrong said.

student voice Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell: A story about possibility lost michael flannagan For the Lantern With the ending of the policy known as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” on Sept. 20 there has been a sense of jubilation for the gay, lesbian, transgendered and bisexual community for the completion of a goal that was almost 20 years in the making. It is well deserved. For the estimated 13,000 members of the United States Armed Forces who have been discharged for being gay under the now former policy I am sure their experiences and their emotions today are profound. Even more than those who have been discharged are the service members who have had to live their life in hiding, in a quiet shame, simply because of two things: they loved their country enough to serve it and they are gay – it is from their perspective that my story is told. I wanted to wait to let the reality sink in of what a world without DADT is like because ever since December 2010 when it was announced the policy would end, I was not sure of how I would feel once it was completely gone. I wanted to let it all sink in and then figure out how I feel because I, like thousands of others, have a story of how “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” impacted my life. Or in my case, how it took a potentially great opportunity away from me. My story is nowhere near as deep as others and nowhere near as painful, but today I suspect not many of us as students at OSU have had a personal experience with the former policy. I have and I hope my story can open some minds to the reality of what DADT was like. My story is a story of possibilities lost. A few years ago I met a guy on AIM in a gay chat room.

I am out as a gay man and had been for a while before then so I was used to talking to people in chat rooms and social media sites as a way to connect. This guy, it turns out, lived about 13 minutes away from me, so we ended up having a private IM convo. Those internet convos turned into phone conversations and eventually we met up in secret. Whether it was on the phone or online we would talk for hours on end about anything and everything and though I suspected he was gay (I did meet him in a gay chat room) he did not at first confirm it to me. Finally one day I asked him flat out, was he gay, and after a long pause (a sign I was on the right track) he said yes, but that he could not talk about it. After getting to know each other for a while I learned why he could not talk about being gay: he was a member of the United States Military and because of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” talking about being gay could end his future career. As we got to know each other better, we formed a chemistry that was immediate. We are both sarcastic, we have similar world and political views, we have similar goals for ourselves long-term. I am a very private person and I don’t open up easily, yet he was able to get through the walls I put up and he made me want him to get to know me better. For reasons I did not understand at the time it was suddenly very important for me to know everything about him and for him to know everything about me but there was always a distance between us. No matter how close we could get, “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” always stood in the way. When we spoke on the phone if he was not alone he would tell his friends that I was a girl named “Michelle” because they might ask questions if he spoke to a boy for hours at a time. We could never go hang out together because though I am not stereotypically

flamboyant, it is not hard to figure out I am gay and he was paranoid about someone finding out. I could not get to know his friends or his family because someone might reveal the truth and the career that he was working so hard for would go away. I did not even feel secure in telling my family and friends his name because of the possibility someone might know someone who would figure out who he was. Coming out of the closet was a long and painful process for me, one that almost ended in suicide, and for this guy I was effectively being put right back in the closet once more. This became a point of tension between us because “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was pulling him in so many different directions. It messed with both of our minds and even through this difficulty I think I was starting to fall for him. I could see myself with him. I could see us having careers and a house and who knows? But there was always this shadow, this dark underlying force, that hung over anything where we were concerned. One day he would be warm and talk about us having a future together and the next he would be distant and would have a hard time even admitting he had any feelings for me whatsoever. On the days when he would be warm and positive of our future he would talk of plans we could make with the most common being he wanted me to go with him whenever he was stationed somewhere other than my home. My usual counter was “Oh yeah? How do you plan on explaining to your bosses and friends about the one random guy that keeps showing up in every city you’re deployed and perhaps even living with you?”…he never had an answer for that question. I have come to believe it is those moments where he would think of me in his future that his true heart was guiding his mind and in the moments where he was distant “Don’t Ask, Don’t

Tell” was breaking that heart. In the end the distance and the secrecy that “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” required for LGBT members of the military and the people in their lives prevented us from ever really getting serious. We skirted the issue for a long time but I simply could not live a life in hiding, even for a great guy like him, and he simply could not risk it all. Perhaps I am wrong and he never really cared much for me but I believe he had developed real feelings for me and I know I could’ve truly loved that boy if only we had been able to have the chance. Sadly, that was not our reality. I haven’t talked to him for a long time and I don’t know what his life is like today or what the ending of DADT means to him. This story, his and mine, is not even close to the pain and suffering that so many LGBT service members and the people they love have gone through. And even though I have not seen or spoken to him for a long time when “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” ended on Sept. 20 (my birthday no less) it was him I thought of. As I write this right now I can see his smile in my mind and I can hear his lame jokes that would make me roll my eyes and I can remember the feeling of waiting for his phone calls. When I think of the end of DADT I think of him and the dedication he had to the country that did not always thank him or appreciate the sacrifices he made. I think of how he made me laugh and how I could hear the struggle in his voice when I would ask him to just tell me how he really felt. I think of how he made me feel like a better person. I think of how he got me without even trying. And I think of what might have been. Goodbye “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

Messenger, USG cabinet take student Buckeyes haven’t hit rock bottom yet, problems more seriously than their own but no brighter days in sight for team

EMILY SPALLA next 50 years or so. I’m impressed with Messenger and his cabinet. They take our problems (such as parking) more seriously than their own (amending the USG election bylaws). Most Senators and cabinet members were appalled by the amount of time spent arguing those bylaws. If past performance is any indication, then it’s probably safe to assume that Messenger and the rest of the USG will be uncomfortable wasting time or money, and plan to be involved in only the core needs of this university, which is exactly how it should be.

“I don’t have a plan just yet,” Ohio State coach Luke Fickell proclaimed, as he rambled through his postgame press conference Saturday. The statement was in reference to how he intends to use the four OSU players who will be returning from suspension next week, but it also applies to just about every moment of the 2011 Buckeyes season. After a dominating win over Akron to start the year, OSU has gone 2-2 in what have been four of the ugliest games in Buckeye history. Their most recent game, a 10-7 loss to Michigan State, may be the only three-point blowout in college football history, as it took a last minute touchdown and a seeminglyconscious effort on the part of the Spartans to lose to prevent the Buckeyes from losing in a 40-point shutout on Saturday. And that might be the scariest part. When you hit rock bottom, people say there’s nowhere to go but up. The only problem is, the Buckeyes haven’t even hit rock bottom yet. In a season that has seen Fickell show the decisiveness of a campaigning politician when it comes to his quarterback situation and an offense that features the predictability of an episode

of Entourage, the Buckeyes still haven’t faced a quality opponent who has a chance of playing in a BCS bowl game this January. To their credit, the Buckeyes have done their part to get to rock bottom. Shattering a freshman quarterback’s confidence by tossing him in and out of the lineup with no rhyme or reason? Check. Seniors forgetting the fundamentals of snapping the ball and tackling? Check. All the Buckeyes need now is a team good enough to send them to that dark place where they have nowhere to go but up. And if there’s a silver lining in all of this, it’s because that team might be around the corner. If a Nebraska team looking to avenge a 48-17 loss to Wisconsin doesn’t force the Buckeyes to hit the reset button next week, odds are that the Badgers will just do it themselves when they come to Columbus on Oct. 29. There may not be an answer to how the Buckeyes can beat the Cornhuskers, Badgers, or even Michigan on Nov. 26, but their roster possesses enough young talent who can learn and grow from this disaster of a season. Michael Brewster, Andrew Sweat, J.B. Shugarts, and Tyler Moeller’s best days as Buckeyes might be behind

them, but that doesn’t mean that Braxton Miller, Brian Bobek, Ryan Shazier, Andrew Norwell, and Christian Bryant won’t one day look back on the 2011 season as the one in which they grew from their mistakes. But for now Buckeye fans should pack a flashlight because in order to find brighter days, it’s going to take some pain during the dark days, and perhaps no day will be darker than Saturday in Lincoln, Neb.


LANTERN Columnist

knew that we had reached some tumultuous political territory. Amending the USG election laws came down to the most basic question in politics … where should the power go? Should it be in the hands of us as students? We pay the fees, so shouldn’t the government be our employee. Or should it go to experienced individuals, who know their constituents (us undergrads) well and understand what will benefit the greatest number of students? What I found most interesting was the focus that this year’s Senate has. They have clear goals and a plan to get them accomplished. They don’t waste time on circular conversations; they would rather act (vote) to solve any issues for students than wait for it to become a major problem. This year is all about privatization. The USG is hoping to lower the cost of our textbooks with the Buckeye Book Swap, to make sure we have enough places to study in Thompson library, to create some sort of joint jurisdiction between our campus police and the Columbus police department so smaller crimes that involve students (such as theft), and possibly finding a company to lease out the parking to for the

LANTERN Columnist

Last week was the Undergraduate Student Government’s first meeting. If you haven’t been to one, go. It was one of the most entertaining events I have attended on campus. The senate is full of strong-willed students with big opinions and big personalities. When you put all of that in the same room, the result is inevitable; a lively platform for debate. I have never been to the U.S. Senate floor, but I would imagine it functions a lot like ours. To call this year’s president, Nick Messenger, a conservative thinker would be an understatement. As far as I could gather, Messenger has a lot of faith in the undergraduates here at Ohio State. I would imagine he views himself as more of a delegator of power, rather than just its holder. Looking around the room, you’d be embarrassed to have come wearing anything less than business casual. It was clear the vast majority were excited to get to the evening’s main event: voting. Senators and execs became most passionate when talking about amending USG election bylaws. When Messenger said, “(In the past) five to six years no one has experienced a consistent USG election”, I


For one drama-filled night, baseball was sports king LANTERN Columnist DAN HOPE I’m not really a big baseball fan but … On Wednesday, I witnessed the latter stages of “the greatest regular-season night in baseball history,” as ESPN baseball analyst Tim Kurkjian called it. Wednesday might have re-ignited my interest in the sport enough that I will be watching some playoff baseball. Aside from college football Saturdays, I haven’t witnessed many other nights in sports with more captivating drama. It was a rare day in baseball from the outset. With one game left in the season, there were two teams tied for the Wild Card playoff berth in both the American League and National League. In the AL, the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays were vying for the final spot, while the St. Louis Cardinals and


Atlanta Braves were vying for the NL berth. For each team, a win on Wednesday guaranteed that they would see another day, whether it be as a Wild Card winner, or in a single-game playoff Thursday. But a loss meant that the other team could end their season with a victory. The Cardinals beat the Houston Astros, 8-0, but they had to wait for the outcome of the Braves’ game against the Philadelphia Phillies before celebrating. The Cards needed a Phillies win. The Braves were in good shape for most of the game, but in the top of the ninth, the Phillies forced the game into extra innings. In the top of the 13th inning, the Phillies broke through with a run, and the Braves were unable to answer. The Braves’ collapsed, going from an 8.5-game Wild Card lead on Sept. 5 to being booted from the playoffs just 23 days later. The Cardinals earned a spot among MLB’s eight playoff teams. That 13-inning game was just the beginning. The Red Sox were playing the Baltimore Orioles, while Tampa Bay were still in action against the New York Yankees. The Yankees held a 7-0 lead going into the eighth, but the Rays were back in the game after a six-run rally in the eighth, led by an Evan Longoria three-run homer. Then, with two

outs in the ninth, pinch hitter Dan Johnson hit the game-tying home run that sent the Rays into extra innings. Meanwhile, in Baltimore, the Red Sox were clinging to a 3-2 lead into the bottom of the ninth, when closer Jonathan Papelbon came in. Papelbon took care of the first two outs easily, leaving Boston just one out away from the postseason. But Papelbon then gave up consecutive doubles, to Chris Davis and Nolan Reimold, who scored Kyle Hudson, a pinch runner for Davis. The next batter, Robert Andino, hit the ball into shallow left, and with Boston left fielder Carl Crawford unable to make the catch, Reimold scored the game-winning run. With the Red Sox’s loss, the Rays were guaranteed a postseason berth with a win. Just three minutes later, Longoria hit his second home run of the night and the Rays walked away as winners of the AL Wild Card playoff berth. In an instant, Rays history was made, as one of the most amazing rallies in baseball history capped off one of the game’s most amazing nights. Many baseball fans were hoping these four teams would all win Wednesday, setting up a Thursday evening with two single-game playoff games to break the two Wild Card ties. However, while there were no

tiebreaker games, sports fans should not be disappointed. Unless, of course, one is a Red Sox or Braves fan. For a league whose postseason television ratings have fizzled

in recent seasons, they could not have concocted any better advertisement for the playoffs. For one night, as a die-hard sports fan, I understood why so many American sports fans love

baseball above all other sports, even if football is king for me.

Solid defensive effort still fell short for OSU JAY CLOUSE Lantern reporter After Saturday’s 10-7 loss to Michigan State, Ohio State football fans might point to the defense as something the Buckeyes can hang their hat on. OSU coaches and players don’t share that outlook, though. “It all comes down to outplaying the other team’s defense and we didn’t outplay their defense,” first-year OSU head coach Luke Fickell said. “We win and lose as a team. That’s what we always tell our kids.” Fifth-year senior defensive back Tyler Moeller agreed. “Obviously we didn’t (play well enough),” Moeller said. “We lost.” Senior linebacker Andrew Sweat was also in agreement. “You want to hold their offense less than our offense and we didn’t do that today,” Sweat said. “So, yeah, we failed.” After surrendering a touchdown pass on MSU’s second drive of the game, the defense held the Spartans to three points for the remainder of the game. Fickell said the defense didn’t get enough pressure on MSU senior quarterback Kirk Cousins. “They ended up with nine sacks and we ended up with zero,” Fickell said. “We got a few more turnovers, but all in all it doesn’t come our in our favor.” OSU won the turnover battle, forcing three turnovers and surrendering one. Moeller was proud of the team’s ability to get the ball back to the offense. “C.J. (Barnett) had a great catch in the end zone and (Bradley) Roby had a great interception,” Moeller said. “Overall we did a good job of getting some turnovers today in crucial situations.” Sophomore defensive back C.J. Barnett’s circus interception in the back of the end zone ended MSU’s scoring threat early in the fourth quarter and kept it a one-possession game, but the offense couldn’t capitalize. Sweat said the defense was trying to get a score of their own. “You wanna create turnovers and you wanna get a defensive score,” he said. “But in the end, we didn’t.” The defense came close late in the first half when sophomore defensive back Christian Bryant dropped a would-be interception that likely would have been returned for a touchdown. Freshman defensive back Bradley Roby, who had an interception with less than five minutes left in the game, talked about the frustration of allowing just 10 points to a ranked team and coming away with a loss. “On defense, we struggled a little bit, but the majority of the time we got three and outs,” Roby said. “They scored early but they didn’t really score again until the end of the game.”

The Buckeyes allowed only three third down conversions on 14 attempts by the Spartans, and didn’t allow a conversion on MSU’s lone fourth down attempt. “We’re obviously frustrated; we were trying our best out there and we couldn’t get any points of the board,” Roby said. “We just gotta do better on offense.” Moeller wasn’t pointing any fingers at the offense. “We can’t worry about what the offense does … the game is always in our hands,” he said. “If we don’t let them score, we win the game.” Sweat said there is no time to dwell on the loss and the team will get back to work in practice this week. “We need to have a short-term memory and get back to work,” he said. “It’s a dismal feeling, but I don’t think we need a pat on the back. We won’t let anyone feel sorry for us.”

Comments In his second career start, freshman Braxton Miller was 5 of 10 passing for 56 yards and one interception. With the Buckeyes trailing Michigan State, 10-0, Miller was lifted from the game for senior Joe Bauserman, who completed 7 of 14 passes for 87 yards and one touchdown to freshman wide receiver Evan Spencer. The touchdown came with 10 seconds remaining in the game and only served to make the scoreline look more respectable and help the Buckeyes avoid their first shutout at Ohio Stadium since October 1982, against Wisconsin. The offensive line just couldn’t cope with Michigan State’s pass rush on Saturday. Spartans’ sophomore defensive end William Gholston, junior linebacker Chris Norman and sophomore linebacker Denicos Allen ran riot on OSU’s linemen, combining for 7.5 tackles for loss and five sacks. All told, Miller and Bauserman were sacked nine times in the contest. “Obviously, they (the offensive line) didn’t do a great job,” first-year OSU head coach Luke Fickell said after the game. “You don’t give your quarterback much of a chance if (they are) getting sacked nine times.” The Buckeyes allowed only 10 points in the game and made the stops it had to in order to keep the team in the game. However, MSU senior receiver B.J. Cunningham had his way with OSU’s corners. Cunningham snagged nine catches for 154 yards, including the 33-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter which eventually proved to be a crucial score. Senior quarterback Kirk Cousins came into the ‘Shoe and left having had a memorable performance as well, completing 20 of 32 passes for 250 yards the touchdown pass. The defense clearly bent against MSU, but seldom broke. Two passes by Cousins were intercepted and OSU also recovered a fumble with MSU threatening to add to its lead. Any time you can limit a Big Ten opponent to 10 points, it’s a successful performance. Special teams again did its part in what was ultimately a losing effort against MSU. Junior punter Ben Buchanan launched a career-high 10 punts in the game, though that was more a product of the team’s offensive struggles. Buchanan averaged 40.6 yards per punt. Sophomore kicker Drew Basil’s lone kickoff sailed into the end zone for a touchback. OSU’s punt return coverage was also serviceable as it limited MSU to 18 total return yards. The run-intensive game plan on offense was too predictable and MSU sniffed it out early in the contest. Plain and simple, it’s got to be better from Fickell and his staff. The glaring failure of the OSU staff was that it couldn’t implement any kind of changes to the failing game plan in the second half. Or at least figure out some kind of protection scheme to help prevent Miller and Bauserman from eating turf all day. The one good thing Fickell did came in his postgame press conference when he stood by Miller, saying that the freshman signal caller was still the team’s starting quarterback despite the mid-game switch to Bauserman. That doesn’t change the fact that OSU began conference play with a loss and hope is steadily fading in Buckeye Nation.

The Buckeyes (3–2, 0–1) will try for their first Big Ten win of the season next Saturday at No. 14-ranked Nebraska (4–1, 0–1). The trip to Lincoln, Neb., is the first in OSU football history. The game will also be the Cornhuskers’ first home game since joining the conference. PAT BRENNAN / Sports editor

Crew, Gaven use ‘luck’ to win and improve playoff chances TYLER ROBINSON Senior Lantern reporter A six-game winless and a three-game losing streak had left the Columbus Crew’s playoff hopes fading, and the team was in need of some luck. “Lady Luck” made an appearance for the final regular season home game Sunday at Crew Stadium, as Columbus rallied to defeat D.C. United, 2-1. The Crew mproved its record to 12-12-8, and, with 44 points, is now in second place and in position to qualify for one of the conference’s three automatic berths for the MLS Cup playoffs. Coach Robert Warzycha said snapping the winless streak gave this win a little bit more meaning than most. “We were waiting a long time for wins,” he said. “So, the taste is sweeter.” A diving header from Columbus midfielder Eddie Gaven in the 60th minute proved to be the game-winning goal. Crew defender Sebastian Miranda split two defenders near midfield and streaked up the sideline before sending in the cross that met Gaven’s head and eventually the back of the net. “I don’t even know why I even tried to head that ball,” said a chuckling Gaven after the game. “I probably should have just hit it with my foot. But (Miranda) made a great run down the right flank and played me a perfect ball. I just kind of threw my neck at it and luckily it went in.” Columbus created several scoring opportunities early, outshooting D.C. United 11-3 in the first half. But it was the visitors who struck first, taking a 1-0 lead in the 37th minute when D.C. United defender Daniel Woolard finished off a free-kick from midfielder Dwayne De Rosario. A shot from Columbus forward Andres Mendoza deflected off Woolard’s left leg and into the back of the net for an own goal, leveling the game, 1-1, in the 48th minute. “We haven’t had too much luck the past two games or so,” Gaven said. “But if you go out there and you work hard, luck is going to come your way a little bit.

CODY COUSINO/ Photo editor

Crew forward Andres Mendoza, whose deflected shot went into D.C. United’s goal during Sunday’s 2-1 win, celebrates a goal on May 28. That’s kind of how it went for us tonight.” When asked if Gaven’s header was the goal of the year so far for the team, Warzycha said no and that there are more memorable goals coming for his team. “Oh I hope not,” he said. “I hope there’s more to come so then we can choose from those.” The Crew finish the regular season with road games on Oct. 15 and 22 against the New England Revolution and the Chicago Fire, respectively.

“We don’t call anybody fans. We call them friends … and we have the best friends in the world,” Eddie Montgomery yelled to the not-so-crowded Schottenstein Center Friday night. Montgomery Gentry, who headlined the four-hour long WCOL’s Country Jam 2011, did not let the empty seats steer them away from doing what they love: throwing a party. With idols like Willie Nelson and Lynyrd Skynyrd, it was no surprise that the American country music duo took the stage full force with Gentry jamming out on his white acoustic guitar and Montgomery swirling the microphone stand in his red cowboy boots. “I think we both just love that rush of being on stage,” Montgomery told The Lantern in a previous email. The duo played, and the crowd sang along to their well-known songs such as “Hell Yeah,” “My Town,” “Gone,” “She Couldn’t Change Me” and “If You Ever Stop Loving Me.” Montgomery shouted to the crowd, “We have a brand new album coming out, Oct. 18, mark the party date on your calendar.” “So go out, buy it and I promise you, when you put it in, you’re gonna wanna turn it up, turn it loud and then find a party,” he said. Montgomery asked the crowd if they could play a few songs off their new album, “Rebels On The Run,” and then joked, saying “good” after the crowd cheered with excitement. Waving their hands in the air, the crowd seemed to enjoy the new songs. The entertainment and drinking began two hours earlier with special guests Steve Holy and Sonia Leigh. Leigh, who sported an “Ohio Rocks” T-shirt, sang

Then they went on to play their No. 1 hit “Something to Be Proud Of.” In November 2010, Montgomery was diagnosed with prostate cancer, which was successfully treated a month later.

“I am cancer-free,” Montgomery yelled to the crowd. “I’m definitely living for each and every day. Live as fast as you can, cause you can’t get it back.” The band went on to play a crowd favorite, “Lucky Man,” after which Montgomery looked up to the ceiling and yelled, “God I want to thank you, I love you God.” Samantha Sloop, 19, who won an autographed guitar from Montgomery Gentry, attended Country Jam to see Montgomery Gentry and Steve Holy donated a can of chicken noodle soup and was entered into a drawing to win the guitar. “It feels good to help out,” Sloop said. “I have food at home and other people don’t, so I brought in the can to donate.”

You don’t need to wait until the next paper for arts updates!


“House” has jumped the shark. Yes, it’s true. In fact, I’ve suspected it might be true for the past couple seasons, but Monday’s season eight premiere all but confirms it. Season eight picks up with Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) in jail after driving his car through the living room of his ex-girlfriend and boss, Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein, who has departed from the show). House butts in when he notices a young doctor (Odette Annable) misdiagnosing an ill inmate, but he finds himself threatened by prison gangs when they find out he’s up for parole. Getting déjà vu? Don’t worry. Me too. Season six opened with House locked up in a mental institution. Monday’s season eight premiere isn’t all that different. A change of scenery isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but “House” has proven that it’s at its best when it throws continuity out the window. “House” doesn’t thrive off soap opera, either. It thrives when Hugh Laurie is owning people left and right and solving medical mysteries. In short, the season premiere of “House” does everything it shouldn’t. That’s not to say the show can’t get away with a few extra doses of drama, as it did masterfully over a two-episode arc in season four when Anne Dudek’s character (Amber) was killed off. After the season eight premiere and the handling of the House-Cuddy relationship last season, “House” has all but proven those episodes were the exception, not the rule.

Hugh Laurie (left), Sebastian Sozzi (middle left), Odette Annable (middle right) and Thom Barry (right) star in the 8th season premiere of ‘House,’ which is scheduled to air Monday at 9 p.m. on Fox. Still, no amount of medical mystery could save this episode. It’s so lazy and clumsily crafted that it’s really not even worth watching. The prison world is by-the-numbers, the characters are one-dimensional and terribly miscast and the story offers nothing of importance. Not even a fleeting appearance from Steve Urkel (Jaleel White) could help matters. There is good news, however. For viewers who will miss the eye candy provided by Olivia Wilde, who has left the show indefinitely to pursue her blossoming film career, Odette Annable (Dr. Jessica Adams) makes an apt substitute. Laurie is still in fine

form per usual, but even then, it is no saving grace for an otherwise poor excuse for an episode. Sadly, if the rest of season eight is anything like the premiere, it might be best to put “House” to rest. For a show far removed from its creative peak, the minds behind “House” need to seriously reconsider the direction the show’s taken if they want to breathe any sort of life back into a floundering series. The season premiere of “House” is set to air Monday at 9 p.m. on Fox. Grade: D
