Five Ohio State football players were paid by a Cleveland-area booster for work they did not do, and as a result, three of the five players are suspended from Saturday’s game at Nebraska. OSU athletic director Gene Smith announced Monday that senior wide receiver DeVier Posey, senior running back Dan Herron and offensive lineman Marcus Hall will be suspended for Saturday’s game at Nebraska as part of the NCAA’s investigation of the program. Melvin Fellows and Etienne Sabino were also involved, though Fellows is no longer playing due to a career-ending injury and Sabino has already been reinstated. The employment violation involves the wages the players were paid relative to the hours they worked under Robert DiGeronimo. DiGeronimo is a former booster from Independence, Ohio. The university sent a letter of disassociation to DiGeronimo on Sept. 20. “Bobby DiGeronimo has been disassociated from the institution,” Smith said. “Publicly it’s looked at as taken so long (to disassociate him), but there is a process of procedures and a strategy.” DiGeronimo is the same Cleveland-area booster who paid junior running back Jordan Hall, junior defensive back Travis Howard and sophomore defensive back Corey Brown at a charitable event in February. DiGeronimo did respond to phone calls for comment from The Lantern. In an interview with The Columbus Dispatch, DiGeronimo said he felt he did nothing wrong. “There were no irregularities,” he told the

Sarah Stemen Oller reporter An office-company filed a lawsuit against Ohio State, saying the university wrongly awarded a potential $24 million printer and copier contract to a competitor. Modern Office Methods filed the lawsuit on Sept. 26 in the Court of Claims, requesting that OSU set aside its recently awarded contract with ComDoc, Inc. and rebid it. According to the documents, Modern Office Methods said a ComDoc employee met with an OSU employee, unknowingly to the other top-two competitors, Modern Office Methods and Gordon Flesch Co. “Bill Matthews, a ComDoc representative, held unapproved closed-door meetings with OSU’s Debie Gill-Parks during the Request for Proposal process, which should have disqualified ComDoc from the RFP,” according to the lawsuit claim. An RFP is a request for proposal.

Everyone got to submit bids for apples, but only the winner got to price oranges. Charles M. Miller lawyer for Modern Office Methods Gill-Parks did not respond to The Lantern’s emails. OSU began taking proposals Jan. 19 and gave the 40-month-long contract to ComDoc on Aug. 31. Charles M. Miller, Modern Office Methods’ lawyer, said the contract is worth $4 million per year, and $12 million for the initial three-year contract. The contract could be renewed after that, for three years totaling $24 million. “Copier contracts are subject to periodic renewal or rebidding,” Miller said. “In the suit, MOM alleges that the latest round of rebidding was not a truly competitive process because OSU was holding improper discussions with the winning bidder that resulted in a contractor very different from the bids.”

Hooligans fundraise for bigger, better pub Colleen Carey Lantern reporter The Hudson Street Hooligans are in the process of opening their superfan pub on Summit Street after it was shut down after a failed inspection. The Hooligans are a Columbus Crew fan group that sits in the “Nordecke,” which is German for “north corner,” at Crew games to celebrate Columbus’ German heritage. Hudson Street Hooligans is also the name of the group’s members-only club that opens for both the Crew and the United States’ men’s and women’s national teams’ matches at Crew Stadium. The establishment also hosts viewing parties for the Crew’s road games, national team games and other popular international fixtures. During the off season, the Hooligans expanded their existing pub into a vacant space next door to make room for ticket and merchandise sales. The problem arose during an inspection by the City of Columbus, after which the pub’s certificate

of occupancy was revoked on July 28. The Hooligans were using the space for “assembly” but the building was zoned for “mercantile use,” according to Blake Compton, the Hudson Street Hooligans’ pub administrator. “We operated basically illegally for a year, not knowing we were doing anything wrong,” Compton said. The inspection ruled that the building needed to be rezoned in order to operate with a liquor license, as well as come up to code on fire regulations and create a parking variance. Currently, the pub can operate on home game days as long as the occupancy remains less than 100, Compton said. “We are going through the review process on our building permit right now so the occupancy is undefined,” Compton said. All of this rezoning and construction comes with a hefty price tag. “Renovations alone will probably be around $45,000-$55,000,” Compton said. In addition to the renovations, there are city fees, such as permit application fees

Miller said that Modern Office Methods just wants the chance to rebid the actual contract. “Everyone got to submit bids for apples, but only the winner got to price oranges,” Miller said. The main differences, Miller said, between the proposed bid and the actual contract OSU agreed to with ComDoc are: • The contract now requires that all OSU schools, campuses and departments participate where, under the bid, each could opt out • OSU now guarantees a minimum 12-month placement for each copier (under the bid, there was no guarantee) • OSU now guarantees a minimum cash flow per machine (also no guarantee under bid) • The contract is now 40 months instead of 36 months “These changes make the contract more attractive to the vendor, and thus vendors would be willing to submit lower bids,” Miller said. Miller said Gordon Flesch also filed a formal

campus Solar team shines, 5th internationally lIndsey Fox Lantern reporter Ohio State’s Solar Decathlon team finished fifth in the U.S. Department of Energy’s competition on Saturday. The international competition, held every two years in Washington, D.C. at the National Mall’s West Potomac Park, challenges college teams from around the world to design, build and operate the best solar-powered house. “This is a competition from around the world and some of the best places in the world,” OSU President E. Gordon Gee told The Lantern Thursday. Gee, who said it was a really “neat house,” joked if they won the competition, he would live in the house for a little bit. “They raised the money, got themselves into the competition and are doing a great job,” Gee said. The OSU team, made up of more than 70 students with 20 core members from 13 different majors, worked for nearly two years to design and construct “enCORE,” which was the university’s entry in the 2011 Solar Decathlon. OSU was one of the 19 teams invited to participate, including teams from China, New Zealand, Belgium and Canada. Stephanie Hayward, a sixth-year graduate student in architecture, is a member of OSU’s team. “The houses were judged in 10 categories relating to design, performance and market viability,” Hayward said. Team OSU returned to the competition from placing 10th in 2009 with their first entry house, “Solar House I.” “As a returning team we carried the previous experiences forward to approach the different issues and to create a better house that was affordable, efficient and appealing,” Hayward said. Teams earned competition points through efficient performance of typical household tasks such as cooking and washing dishes and laundry. “The best feature for enCORE is the idea of it being focused for a family, I think it is something that hasn’t been focused on in past projects, so this one was really focused on being suitable for a family,” Hayward said. Hayward said EnCORE got its name from focusing on the “core” of the house. EnCORE was built with the idea to maximize the efficiency of the home by condensing all the mechanical and fixed items into a minimal footprint, while still providing flexible spaces that accommodate all the modern family needs, Hayward said. He said the team focused on spatial efficiency. The exterior dimensions were 950 square feet with the interior ending up at 870 square feet. The 3-person home featured two bedrooms, one bath and a den, Hayward said. Performances were assessed through the livability and affordability of each home. The final cost of the house was $286,000, which placed OSU sixth in the affordability category, Hayward said. Some of the house’s unique energy features were high-efficiency, triplepane, gas-filled windows, super-insulated walls, a sloped roof to collect rainwater and a bioremediation system to filter and recycle graywater, a solar hot air system that uses phase-change technology to reduce heating and cooling loads by up to 20 percent and solar panels that can be effective even under overcast skies, according to a press release. “A lot of the general public does not think that solar is a viable

During the decathlon, visitors can tour the different homes to learn about the opportunities presented by cost-effective houses that combine energy-efficient construction and appliances with renewable energy systems available today. “EnCORE, which has clean energy and performs better than most homes, will be set up on campus for a little while and then we are hoping to put it in a neighborhood in Columbus for a family to move in to,” Hayward said. The University of Maryland won the overall decathlon. “Maryland had a beautiful house, that was very well built and had a good concept,” Hayward said. “They had … what the jury wanted to see.” Although OSU’s team stood in second place for most of the competition, they were happy with the overall outcome. “It was definitely fun and a great experience,” Hayward said. “You make all these projects in school but for us getting to design a project on paper and then actually being able to build it was the best part overall.” As of right now, there are no plans for OSU to compete again in the coming years.

the human red ribbon at the ohio statehouse. this demonstration kicked off the beginning of AIds Awareness week.

Event cuts ribbon for AIDS awareness Jenelle CooPer Lantern reporter A human red ribbon was made on the west steps of the Ohio Statehouse Monday at noon to kick off the start of AIDS Awareness Week. The Central Ohio HIV Planning Alliance marked the beginning of its AIDS Awareness week and people from around Columbus were invited to take part in the event. Iris Velasco, HIV/AIDS Specialist for the Columbus Urban League was in charge of planning the demonstration. “We wanted it to be flash mob style. People are to be all over the statehouse grounds, around noon they will make their way to the west steps” Velasco said before the event. Velasco said the Statehouse was chosen as the location in hopes of attracting bystanders to participate in the event. “We want to raise awareness,” Velasco said. “We hoped the Statehouse would be busy and attract a big crowd, not just the people working there, but those who are just waiting for the bus or are downtown.” Participants included members of COHPA and community advocates.


David Baker, director of AIDS Awareness Ministry, said he hoped the demonstration would get AIDS Awareness Week off to a good start. Participants were instructed to wear red to the event. Red trash bags and ponchos were offered to onlookers who decided to participate. Velasco said she was hopeful that students from OSU would participate in the demonstration. “The Wellness Center made a Facebook page for the event and 47 people said they were attending, but you know how that goes,” she said. There were no OSU student participants in the demonstration. AIDS Awareness Week will last until Saturday, Oct. 8, ending with AIDSWalk at 9 a.m. at Bicentennial Park. All proceeds from the walk will go toward Central Ohio HIV/AIDS service organizations for prevention and education for the community. Tre’Vera Green Anderson, an AIDS Advocate who has spoken at the OSU Aids awareness class, said she would like to repeat the human-ribbon demonstration at the AIDSWalk.

On top of announcing that Ohio State football players DeVier Posey, Dan Herron and Marcus Hall are suspended for Saturday’s game at Nebraska, athletic director Gene Smith also announced that Robert DiGeronimo, the booster who overpaid the players resulting in their suspensions, has been “disassociated” from OSU. In a letter dated Sept. 20 issued to DiGeronimo from Smith, the Department of Athletics informed him that he has been disassociated from the university because of his “failure to meet with the university to discuss these important issues,” pertaining to DiGeronimo not consenting to being interviewed by OSU, though he did talk to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The athletic department took their time before making the move, hoping DiGeronimo would consent to an interview before ultimately disassociating him. “It was an effort to try and gain cooperation before we ultimately disassociate. We realized that was not going to happen, so we ultimately disassociated,” Smith said. “On this particular one, we made a request last week when we saw that this might be coming, requesting that consideration be given to try to expedite this.” So what does it mean to be disassociated? In the football program distributed at every home football game, it states on a page titled, “NCAA Compliance Regulations,” that disassociation results in “a loss of all

benefits or privileges offered by the department of athletics and may involve other penalties as appropriate.” Smith’s letter states DiGeronimo is to be “completely eliminated from any involvement in the University’s athletics program.” He is also not allowed to donate any money to the school, employ student-athletes, purchase season tickets for athletic events, access complimentary tickets, contact any student-athletes, coaches or administrators, or attend any practice or competition relating to a sporting event. DiGeronimo’s tickets to the games have been “deactivated” from the Colorado game onward. In fact, not even his family members are allowed to give him a ticket if they buy one. This all stems from the fact that DiGeronimo overpaid five football players — Posey, Herron and Hall, as well as Marvin Fellows and Etienne Sabino — for summer jobs. Herron was overpaid $292.50. He was paid for 104 hours of work, even though he only worked 84.5 hours. Posey was overpaid by $720, being paid for 70 hours of work, despite actually working only 21.5 hours. He also received $102 in impermissible benefits for a round of golf. Hall was overpaid by $225. He was paid for 66.5 hours of work, despite only working 51 hours. DiGeronimo is a booster, who is defined in the football program as a person who has ever “made any financial contributions to Ohio State,” among other reasons. The program also defines what “extra benefits” are, which includes giving cash or loans of any amount, and also states a booster who provides extra benefits “may be disassociated from the university’s athletics program.”

and pre-construction costs with the engineers and architects. In total, Compton thinks the total cost will be around $65,000. With all of this work, some are asking if it would be easier to throw in the towel and find a new hangout. “I’ve heard that question a lot. Proximity is so important to what we do, walking to the game is so important,” Compton said. “There’s really nothing in that area that we could utilize for ourselves. There’s plenty of other bars but nothing that’s ours.” Since the club started fundraising about two months ago, it has raised nearly $5,000. “Now that we have a couple of away games, we are going to try to work on some type of fundraising event,” Compton said. The Hooligans have a faithful group of supporters who want to see their pub succeed. “When it happened, there were so many people that stood up and stood behind me and Jon (Winland) and Grant (Thurmond), the other owners, and tried to do whatever they could to try to support us and keep us open,” Compton said. “It worked. Even though temporarily we’re only open on home game days, we still made it happen because of our members standing up for us.” Dave Stephany, the senior director for communications and community relations at the Columbus

specifics of a lawsuit,” he said in a statement to The Lantern. “However, the university expects that once the facts are known by the court, the university’s administrative actions and decisions will be upheld.” ComDoc also did not respond to multiple calls from The Lantern. Trial for the lawsuit is set for Oct. 19 and 20, according to court documents. Modern Office Methods has upheld a contract with OSU for some 20 years, and its machines currently comprise about half of all OSU copiers. “MOM greatly appreciates its relationship with the university,” Miller said. “MOM just wants a fair process, something the entire university community supports.”

Crew, agrees that the Crew is supportive of the Hooligans, as they have become a part of the fan experience. “With soccer, there is so much running and it’s such a physically demanding sport that when you have that kind of force behind you, it really is a consistency, you hear from players, that it lifts your spirits and keeps you going on the field,” Stephany said. To gain the support of the Ohio State students, Compton suggests going to a Crew game and if you enjoy the experience, you can be a part of the Hooligans. Ben Goldfarb, a third-year in radiation therapy, is skeptical but said he would like to check out the pub when it re-opens. “Joining a group like that sounds pretty appealing but because the place they commune got shut down due to violations, I’m not completely sure I would support the group,” Goldfarb said. Local businesses are pitching in to lend their support. Traxler Tees created the Hooligans’ T-shirts and covered all of the up-front costs. Studio 35 Cinema & Drafthouse, also hosted an event in which a portion of the proceeds went to the Save Hooligans’ fund.

Players’ ineligibility is an example of ‘what not to do.’ Dispatch. “The hours they were paid were the hours they worked.” Smith said Posey, Herron and Marcus Hall would be suspended for the Nebraska game on Saturday, and further suspensions have not been ruled out. “The dollar amount for each student athletes determines the penalty that will ultimately be levied by the NCAA,” Smith said. According to documents provided by OSU, Herron was overpaid $292.50. He was paid for 104 hours of work, even though he only worked 84.5 hours. Posey was overpaid by $720, being paid for 70 hours of work, despite actually working only 21.5 hours. Posey also received $102 in impermissible benefits for a round of golf. Posey and Herron were originally suspended the first five games of the season and were scheduled to be reinstated for Saturday’s game at Nebraska. Marcus Hall was overpaid by $225. He was paid for 66.5 hours of work, despite only working 51 hours. Sabino received $60 extra compensation, being paid for 16 hours of work despite actually working only 12 hours. He will play Saturday as long as he pays the money back first. Fellows was overpaid by $292.50. He was paid for 82.5 hours, though he only actually worked 61 hours. Requests for comment from Posey and Herron were declined. Jerry Emig, the associate director of athletics communication, said the athletic department is not making athletes available for comment. When Jordan Hall, Howard and Brown were suspended for taking $200 from DiGeronimo. They each received a two-game suspension. All of the players in Monday’s allegation, with the exception of Sabino, received more than $200 in impermissible benefits. The documentation provided by OSU notes that the players did not know they were being overpaid by DiGeronimo, but “none knew their hourly wage or the number of hours for which they were paid.” Smith said the investigation was a collaborative effort between the university and the NCAA.

“At this point in time we are going through the restoration committee for reinstatement,” Smith said. “We are fortunate and optimistic that when we move forward with our broader case that there is no additional allegations to share.” The reinstatement process is ongoing, Smith said. “The NCAA has done a very thorough job of evaluating our systems, our procedures, our policies and our structural education,” Smith said. “We will have to wait and find out from the reinstatement staff the magnitude of the penalties.” Smith said he does not expect charges of “failure to monitor” or a “lack of institutional control.” “These failures are individual failures, failures of individual athletes,” Smith said. “And as you know, unfortunately, a previous coach, and a booster.” Smith said the university can use this as an example of what not to do, and learn from it. “Were there lessons learned by us? No question,” Smith said. “Will we be able to improve our education and monitoring? No question. At the end of the day, individual decisions were made that went off the reservation.” Smith said that as athletic director of the university, he is responsible for the new allegations. “I am held accountable,” Smith said. “That’s why I’m sitting here today. We need to constantly work collaboratively with the NCAA.” Cameron Dahlin, a first-year in business, said that without these players, OSU does not stand a chance against Nebraska. “If Posey were to come back, it would help our QB situation by giving them someone to throw the ball to,” Dahlin said. “If we want to stand a chance at all, we need them to play.” Smith informed the team of the news at 3 p.m. on Monday and he said they were disappointed. Smith said head coach Luke Fickell was also disappointed. “Obviously Luke (Fickell) was disappointed,” Smith said. “I tried to keep him informed throughout the process of potential realities that we might be here.” Smith expects the NCAA ruling on OSU’s case to be delayed. “I anticipate that the Committee on Infractions will take longer and ultimately give us an answer, hopefully, sometime this

fall,” Smith said. The NCAA has yet to rule on the OSU’s status going forward, but OSU has already administered self-imposed penalties. These include vacating the 2010 season, including the Sugar Bowl victory, giving back the $388,811 earned from the Sugar Bowl and a two-year NCAA probationary term. Posey, Herron, Mike Adams and Solomon Thomas were originally suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season after selling Buckeye football memorabilia in exchange for improper benefits in the form of tattoos. Linebacker Jordan Whiting received a one-game ban. Thomas and Adams will return for the game against Nebraska. Posey and Herron’s original suspensions were part of head football coach Jim Tressel failing to report various violations to the compliance department. A Columbus-area lawyer contacted Tressel via email in April 2010 informing him of memorabilia being sold to a tattoo parlor owner, Eddie Rife. Tressel kept that information to himself and knowingly played Herron, Posey and other athletes that were later deemed ineligible for the duration of the 2010 season. Tressel was forced to resign on May 30 and Fickell was named interim head coach for the entire 2011 season. The university later changed the terms of Tressel’s departure from a resignation to a retirement. Former OSU quarterback Terrelle Pryor had also received a five-game suspension before departing the university on June 7 to pursue a career in the NFL. Pryor was drafted on Aug. 23 by the Oakland Raiders in the supplemental draft, and after a ruling from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, was suspended for the first five games of the 2011 NFL season. Smith said the university has to monitor more than 1,000 athletes at the university, and they are working on improving compliance education for all of them. “We have 1,090 athletes, 200 new ones every single year ages 17, 18 years old, come to us from all levels of maturity and immaturity,” Smith said. “We have to constantly find ways to make sure we are doing things right to help them.” William Hessler contributed to this story.

Approximately 40 people volunteered on the Do Good Bus, which takes part in community service projects in cities where the band Foster the People is playing a show.

Columbus residents do some good Jackie Storer Lantern reporter The Do Good Bus, part of the Do Good Tour with Foster the People, rolled into Columbus Sunday with the indie-pop trio to pick up dozens of strangers and take them out to live up to the bus’ name. The Do Good Bus is a tour bus following Foster the People on their tour for 30 days, stopping in each city and picking up volunteers to take them to a mystery location in that city to participate in community service projects. In Columbus, the mystery service project involved a trip to Animal’s Garden, one of 90 gardens in Franklin County run by the volunteers at the Columbus-based not-for-profit group, Local Matters, which works to increase education and access to Ohio-grown foods. It is unusual to have bands taking the time while they are on tour to figure out how they can give back, said Trish Dehnbostel, the director of healthful food access at Local Matters.

While at the garden, the volunteers pulled weeds, planted trees and vegetables, turned compost piles and created a garden for kids to play in. With all of the extra helping hands, the volunteers did about three weeks worth of work for Local Matters in three hours, Dehnbostel said. As the band is travelling from town to town, to stop and to think about what they can do for each community is amazing, she said. Stephen Snedden and Rebecca Pontius, sister of Foster the People’s drummer Mark Pontius, founded the bus more than a year ago in Los Angeles after their friends kept asking how they could help to volunteer. “We kind of just got fed up with people asking and said ‘Why don’t we just throw them on the bus and show them how to volunteer?’ And that’s what we did,” Pontius said. Pontius believed that touring with the band would be a good way to help not only each community they visited, but the band as well. “Ever since they actually became a band, they knew that they wanted to use music and use the way music can create a community and be able to

give back,” Pontius said. “They knew going into this, if they were lucky enough to get famous, they want to take advantage of that and give back.” And give back they shall. On this tour, there will be approximately 750 volunteers helping with 25 causes, according to a press release. While many of the volunteers came from all over Ohio to join the Do Good Bus effort, some drove from West Virginia and North Carolina for a chance to meet the band and to help service a community. Others took a COTA bus from Ohio State’s campus to hop on board the Do Good Bus. Katie Martina, a first-year in zoology, said she regularly volunteers and really enjoyed the experience of helping in the garden. “It met my expectations, it was really fun,” Martina said. Only halfway through their tour, Foster the People still has many cities to see and the Do Good Bus still has many organizations to help. “I think I’m overwhelmed and lucky and just really excited to do more,” Pontius said. “We’re only halfway.”

‘Break the Skin,’ by OSU professor Lee Martin.

Author and Ohio State professor of English Lee Martin will be at the Thurber Center Tuesday to discuss his new book “Break the Skin.” The “Evening with Author Lee Martin” starts at 6 p.m. at the Thurber Center. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served. The reading will start at 7 p.m., followed by a Q&A session. Martin was inspired to write this book by a news story about a woman who managed to convince three people that a young girl put a hex on them. “The purpose of writing the book was to figure out how the woman convinced the people and why they believed that they were truly cursed,” Martin said. “Break the Skin” is told from the point of view of Laney, a teenager from south eastern Illinois who is longing for acceptance and attention, and Miss Baby, a tattoo artist in Texas who longs to find her true love and move on from her past of being mistreated and used. The police come to Laney one night to question her and she tells a dishonest story meant to cause vengeance. Her lies, however, ultimately backfire and cause more turmoil in her life. Miles away in

Texas, Miss Baby meets a man who seems like he can fulfill her need for love and protection. The only catch is when the strange man comes to town, he cannot recollect his real name or his past. Little do they know, this mystery man links Laney and Miss Baby in one tragic crime. Through both of their perspectives, the fabrications, denials and manipulation of others slowly unfold to the catastrophic climax. “Although I have not read the book I would definitely consider reading it because it seems to lean towards the murder mystery genre, which I like,” said Steve Graver, a second-year chemical engineering major. “Also, I find authors in general intriguing because they view the world in such a creative and different way. It would be cool to hear what Dr. Martin has to say,” he added. “I would consider going to the event because I am inspired that a professor from our own community is so successful in his work,” said Carla Luévano, a second-year in psychology. “I hope that people would welcome the opportunity to experience the oral interpretation of the novel,” Martin said. “If they never have been to a reading before, it is a good chance to see how the written word can be perceived in the oral form and explore the mysteries of being human.”

The Arts & Life section is getting a makeover and we’re looking for reader input ARTS Editor alex antonetz

The Arts & Life section is getting a makeover. We are in the process of revamping the section. Since I took over as editor Spring Quarter, the Arts & Life section has grown. We’ve covered more

events that we feel students care about and the readership of our stories has reflected that. In fact, we are also considering changing the name of the section to more accurately describe the content we provide. We’re also going to change the color scheme of the page. Part of the appeal of the arts section is to make it aesthetically pleasing. Arts sections need to look nice — plain and simple. The purple and green isn’t offensively unappealing, but it tends to print badly, and that’s frustrating for a section that must look its best. I’m also not particularly fond of the purple, either. Quite frankly, the purple and green makes it look like Barney the Friendly Dinosaur puked on the page. That said, we want to involve students in the color change process. Which color scheme would you prefer?

We’ve narrowed the choices down to three. We have a green color scheme from the now-defunct metro section. We also have a sky blue scheme, which utilizes the blue we use for our weather graphic on the front page. Finally, we have an entirely new scheme, which would be pink. Take a look at the options and tell us what scheme you’d like to see. Vote in a poll on our website, post your vote on Facebook and tweet your choices to our Twitter account, @TheLanternArts. Polls are now open and will run through Oct. 11. The changes will take place on Oct. 17. Let us know what you think, not only about the colors, but our content as well. Do you like it? What do you want to see more or less of? Comment on our stories, email me or tweet us at our Twitter account.

Crew ‘controls own destiny’ in push for playoffs Tyler Robinson Senior Lantern reporter The Columbus Crew’s winless streak that spanned six games from Aug. 21 to Oct. 2 cost the team the No.1 spot in the Eastern Conference and threatened to knock it out of playoff contention. Columbus fell behind, 1-0, to D.C. United on Sunday and the team was one half of soccer away from going winless for a seventh consecutive game. Columbus goalkeeper William Hesmer said there was a do-or-die attitude discussed amongst the players in the locker room at halftime. “Now is the time,” Hesmer said of the halftime rhetoric. “If you want to make the playoffs and if you want to be a championship team, now is the time. There is no more time to mess around. “You’re either going to fold and we’re all going to be upset, or you’re going to step up and this could be a building block to something special.” The Crew answered the call, rallying for two goals in the second half to win the game, 2-1, and snap the six-game winless streak. Midfielder Eddie Gaven, whose diving header in the 60th minute proved to be the game-winner, said the game was a mental turning point for the team. “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.” The win propelled Columbus into a second-place tie with the Philadelphia Union, one point behind conference-leading Sporting Kansas City. The top-three teams automatically qualify for the playoffs. If the Crew fall out of the top three spots, it could still make the postseason by clinching one of the four wildcard slots available. Hesmer said the team is better than that.

Crew forward Andres Mendoza fights to put a shot on goal during a May 28 game against Chivas USA. “We are without a doubt one of the top-ten best teams in this league,” he said. “We’ve got to prove that at the end of the season in the standings. Ultimately, we want to prove that we are one of the top-three in the (conference). I think we are there.” Coach Robert Warzycha said that during the winless stretch, he never felt the team was in danger of missing the playoffs. “Sometimes with a young team and so many new players, it can be difficult to pick up the pieces,” he said. “But with the win (Sunday), I think we are getting forward… If we win the next two games and

we play better, then we can really push it forward into the playoffs.” The Crew will hit the road for its final two games with a match against the New England Revolution on Oct. 15 followed by a meeting with the Chicago Fire on Oct. 22. Hesmer said the team controls its own destiny. “It’s going to be a fight and it’s going to be in our hands,” he said. “If we go and get the results that we’re capable of getting, then we’ll be alright.”

Athletic director Gene Smith continues to trumpet the mantra of no “systemic issue of compliance” at Ohio State. While he’s clearly off base with that assessment, the NCAA’s backward

single piece of that revenue. Smith may say that he is held accountable for the violations within the program he oversees but that rings hollow. The players are getting punished while Smith sits on his hefty salary. Not only are they playing without pay and getting suspended when they try to earn a small cut of what they deserve, they are also turned into public scapegoats – just like Jim Tressel – thanks to Smith’s addresses to the media at press conferences. When Smith says the lack of compliance is a result of “individual failures,” he is trying to sway the public into believing that nothing is wrong with the system they play under, nor is anything wrong – most importantly – at OSU. Hopefully this subservient trick pays off and the Buckeyes aren’t severely punished by the NCAA’s

system makes it nearly impossible for any school to obey its rules. The Buckeyes’ athletic program is as close to a police state as you can get in today’s era of college athletics. Seemingly any small impropriety finds its way into a self-report from OSU to the NCAA. No other program has the same kind of thorough record when it comes to reporting violations. This is nothing to be proud of, however, as they are only enforcing a highly flawed system. Of course, they are left with no choice with the media onslaught anticipating any slight slip-up from within the program. Be it selling their personal awards or earning a couple extra hundred dollars for work they didn’t actually do, players like DeVier Posey and Daniel “Boom” Herron deserve every cent – and more. They play in a system that generates billions of dollars but don’t see a

committee on infractions. While the university deflects blame to specific players, the lazy narrative of dismissing Posey and Herron from the team emerges. That idea – floated out by multiple members of the Columbus media – truly solves nothing. It only reinforces the unequal punishment of Buckeyes players as compared to other programs where similar – or worse – violations occur and go unreported. The chaotic atmosphere around college athletics continues and OSU will be as vigilant as ever in enforcing the NCAA’s false sense of amateurism. The cycle won’t stop until something is done about the persistent exploitation of college athletes.

Posey, Herron shouldn’t be allowed to play for OSU

OSU is enforcing NCAA’s ‘backward’ system

Rules are rules. As a lifelong Buckeye fan, it pains me to say that whatever punishment is laid down, by Ohio State or the NCAA, upon Ohio State football players DeVier Posey, Dan Herron, and Marcus Hall will be deserved. Growing up, I always saw OSU as an institution representing tradition, pride and excellence. The Silver Bullets, the golden

The free tattoos, the selling of memorabilia, accepting money while at a charity event and now being paid for work that was never done make it seem as though the players were running rampant. If OSU really was doing a proper job with teaching the players about compliance with NCAA rules and ensuring that the players then followed those lessons, surely someone should have noticed what was happening, and if they didn’t notice, then they must have been doing a terrible job. This leads me to my second conclusion; Gene Smith and the entire compliance staff are either incompetent or liars. We need to have someone who can take the athletic department by the reigns and whip it in to shape and Smith is clearly not that person. OSU needs to eliminate all of the problems with the football program and should fire Smith and the compliance staff. I know that the idea of sending OSU into a deeper hole isn’t an

pants, Buckeye Grove and “Carmen Ohio” all inspire those feelings in within me. The recent scandals have struck deep within me, shaking my beliefs about OSU. OSU’s current generation of football players, and any considering coming here in the future, need to be taught a lesson. These players who continually disrespect everything that Ohio State has ever stood for do not deserve to wear the colors that are so dear to my heart. Scarlet and Gray is reserved for those who understand what it is to be a Buckeye. Posey and Herron are excellent football players, and I would personally love it if the team had more on-field help this year. The team clearly needs all the help it can get, but Posey and Herron shouldn’t be allowed to play for the Buckeyes anymore. Furthermore, those who allowed such widespread offenses should be held accountable.


appealing one, but I want an institution I can be proud of. I would rather turn away good talent and have a good reputation than allow tainted players and staffers to stay for the sake of a stronger football team. That’s not what OSU is about.
