Fences fall: OSU fans swarm Mirror Lake early AMY MACYNSKI Lantern reporter Some Ohio State fans knocked down chain-link fences and jumped in Mirror Lake Monday night after new restrictions on the Mirror Lake jump were announced Sunday. OSU officials had announced there would be increased safety and security efforts for the Mirror Lake jump, originally planned for Tuesday night. Fences were installed surrounding Mirror Lake with one designated entrance spot and multiple exits. Students, whether jumping or watching, were set to be required to wear a wristband issued to those with BuckIDs only for admission to the area Tuesday, causing some students to take to social media and plan an alternative event. Jumping in Mirror Lake before the OSU football game against the University of Michigan is a university tradition, though it is not officially university-sanctioned. A Facebook event and Twitter page were created, encouraging others to jump Monday at 11:45 p.m. instead of Tuesday. More than 800 people had responded that they were going to attend as of 12:30

a.m. Tuesday, while more than 8,000 were invited on Facebook. Police officers did not stop people from entering the area at about 11:45 p.m. Monday. A University Police officer said at its peak, there were an estimated 1,500 people at the lake Monday night. There were no injuries or arrests reported as of 12:15 a.m. Tuesday, said officers from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office. Police forces present included Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and University Police, the officers said. It was 32 degrees and snowing as of 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, according to the Weather Channel. Representatives of OSU’s Student Life were not available for comment Monday night about what would happen with Tuesday’s scheduled jump. OSU Vice President for Student Life Javaune Adams-Gaston said Sunday she was unconcerned with students’ negative reactions to the announced university restrictions. “I have great faith in our students, I know that change is difficult and people have the right to have views about that change, but I also know that our student population is one that is spirited and not disruptive,” Adams-Gaston told The Lantern.

Cheer coach fired 6 months after sexual harassment investigation DAN HOPE Oller reporter Ohio State fired head cheerleading coach Lenee Buchman Monday, more than six months after two of her former assistant coaches were fired “for cause” following a sexual harassment investigation. “We can confirm that, this afternoon, Director of Athletics, Gene Smith, terminated Lenee Buchman as head coach of the spirit program,” OSU athletics spokesman Dan Wallenberg told The Lantern in an email Monday. Steve Chorba, one of two assistants hired in August to replace former assistant coaches Eddie Hollins and Dana Bumbrey, has been named interim head coach, Wallenberg confirmed. Buchman’s firing came less than two weeks after The Lantern first reported upon an OSU investigation that found “sufficient evidence” Hollins and Bumbrey had violated the university’s Sexual Harassment Policy. KAILY CUNNINGHAM / Multimedia editor OSU’s Sexual Harassment Policy defines Then-OSU cheerleading coach Lenee Buchman stands on the sexual harassment as “unwelcome sexual sideline during an OSU football game against Illinois Nov. 16.

advances” and “requests for sexual favors,” and includes “other physical or verbal conduct of a sexual nature” when, among other conditions, it creates an “intimidating, hostile or offensive environment for working, learning or living on campus.” Buchman did not immediately respond to The Lantern’s request for comment. Smith has not been made available for comment since The Lantern’s first report. Buchman’s updated employment records were not immediately provided upon a request from The Lantern. A sexual harassment complaint was received April 6, when OSU received the anonymous complaint via EthicsPoint, OSU’s anonymous reporting line, that Hollins and Bumbrey had created a hostile environment by sexually harassing cheerleaders, according to investigation records obtained by The Lantern. The report alleged Hollins had specifically harassed male cheerleaders, while Bumbrey had specifically harassed female cheerleaders. Hollins and Bumbrey were both terminated “for cause” May 23, according to letters to each coach from Kim Heaton, the director of human resources for the OSU athletic department. When interviewed April 24 as part of OSU’s investigation, Buchman confirmed a male cheerleader reported to her sometime around July 2012

that he had received “inappropriate text messages” from Hollins. Buchman told investigators after receiving the report from the cheerleader, she addressed Hollins directly and requested he cease sending any personal text messages to students. She did not, however, report the complaint to OSU’s Office of Human Resources. A June 20 letter to Buchman from Heaton said Buchman “did not follow the proper channels” of reporting the initial complaint from an OSU cheerleader and instead tried to resolve the issues on her own. The letter stated OSU coaches are “required to report any complaints that a reasonable person would believe to be sexual harassment.” Buchman, who had been OSU’s head coach since July 2009, was retained by the university at the time. She was required to attend a sexual education harassment session with her team, which OSU spokesman Gary Lewis said was completed July 26. She also received a 1 percent salary raise Aug. 23 to $43,003 from her former salary of $42,577. The initial complaint Buchman received came from former OSU cheerleader Cody Ellis, whose attorney, John Camillus, confirmed Ellis received inappropriate text messages from Hollins July 14, 2012.

Off-field battles facilitate blood donations, canned food drives MARIO ROBERTSON Lantern reporter The yearly Ohio State-Michigan clash on the gridiron is a classic rivalry in college football, but the stadium isn’t the only place fans fly their colors. Thousands of OSU students, staff and faculty participate in community service activities each year in an attempt to best the Wolverines. OSU versus Michigan Blood Battle The OSU versus University of Michigan Blood Battle, which began in 1982, has been raging between the two universities for more than 30 years, said Rodney Wilson, the communications manager for the Central Ohio Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross. The Blood Battle at OSU is coordinated by the Central Ohio Blood Services Region, Wilson said. Wilson, though, said while he isn’t sure of the origins

of the Blood Battle competition, the impact OSU can make in the community through the event is enormous. “Each school has a goal of reaching 2,500 blood donations,” Wilson said. “When you split the blood through donation into three products like we do into platelets, plasma and red blood cells they have the potential to save three lives. One school alone in the battle has the potential to impact 7,500 patients … The impact is enormous.” The blood donated by OSU students and faculty is distributed to Columbus residents as well as other counties in the Central Ohio region, Wilson said. November can sometimes be a problematic month because of a decline in blood donations during the holiday season, but the Blood Battle helps to motivate students to donate, Wilson said. “This competition … generates a lot of excitement so it helps us at a time where we know blood donations would be decreasing otherwise,” Wilson said. The American Red Cross Club at OSU also

contributes to the planning and success of the Blood Battle on campus. “We supply volunteers for all of the blood drives, help market them and help reach out to other organizations that might want to partner with us,” said Edward Zitnik, a fourth-year in molecular genetics and president of the American Red Cross Club. “When we have more than 60 drives in the month of November, it is really hard to supply volunteers at all of them with our club alone.” Zitnik said he is glad the drive is able to make a positive impact based on the OSU-Michigan rivalry. “Regardless of how the Blood Battle ends every year, both schools celebrate tremendously because we collected upwards of 5,000 units of blood in just a month and that can save up to (15,000) lives,” Zitnik said. “Either way, our impact is very strong. It’s really fun to win the trophy and be the ones who take home the victory, but we know that both schools are winning in a sense because we are making that impact on our communities.”

OSU is currently losing the Blood Battle to Michigan with about 1,800 donations compared to the nearly 2,400 donations collected by Michigan. OSU won the competition last year, as well as winning the football game, 26-21. Zitnik said there’s still time for OSU to win again. “Last year, for instance, we were down for the entire blood battle, I actually don’t think we were ever ahead,” Zitnik said. “We are really counting on all the staff and students here to come out like they have in the past and help us pull out a win again.” Some students donated because they heard OSU was losing to Michigan. “I know that Michigan has a lot more people donating right now so we wanted to help out the OSU cause and donate,” said Taylor Fante, a firstyear in exploration. “I saw the advertisements in my dorm that showed that Michigan was ahead of us by about 300.”

62% 61% 36% 32% • Of men said they need help with choosing a major • Of women said they need help with choosing a major • Chose a major that is a “good fit” • Chose a major that is a “poor fit” source: reporting

KAYLA ZAMARY / Design editor

MADELYN GRANT Lantern reporter The majority of college freshmen felt they needed help from advisers to choose majors and career plans, a higher percentage than researchers expected, according to a recent study. Nearly one-third of this year’s national freshman class planned to major in something that was a “poor fit,” according to a study released this month by ACT, a nonprofit organization that aims to help people achieve education and workplace success. The 2013 ACT College Choice Report looked at the majors nearly 1.8 million 2013 high school graduates chose in comparison with their interest levels in those fields. The information from the report comes from the 2013 ACT-tested high school graduating class and was collected when the high school students registered for the ACT. About 36 percent of students who selected a planned major chose something that was a “good fit with their interests,” according to the report, while about 32 percent selected a major that was considered to be a “poor fit with their interests.”

Meanwhile, about 62 percent of men and 61 percent of women said they felt they needed assistance from their chosen college to decide their major and career plans. Steve Kappler, ACT’s assistant vice president for career and college readiness, said that percentage was larger than expected. “We have a lot of work to do to have these conversations sooner and make them more real for students to help them align themselves with the right career. I didn’t realize the number of students that really needed these conversations,” Kappler said. Some Ohio State students agreed that those conversations would be helpful in the majordecision process. “I would expect that because 18, 19 and 20-year-olds are still not sure what they want to do with their lives, they pick a major or something that seems interesting or what they were good at in high school,” said Brian Hoffer, a fourth-year in microbiology. The study found that more women had selected a planned major and were “very sure” of their planned major choice. Macy Araps, a second-year in business who switched majors this year, said she had trouble finding her passion at first.

“I knew there were a lot of job opportunities in engineering, especially for females, but I ended up hating it. I like business better, my classes interest me more,” Araps said. OSU’s University Exploration program aims not to place judgment on students based off their priorities for picking a major, said Glenn Ireland, an academic counselor in University Exploration. He said it is important for students not to focus solely on their major but also on the other factors employers look at when they apply for a job. “You want to think abut your interests, your strengths, your goals and how those line up with careers. What is at the intersection of all those things?” Ireland said. This was the first year the ACT report focused on majors specifically and looked at what majors students said they would pursue in comparison with where their interests actually fell. It is also the first large-scale study of its type, Kappler said. “This is really about helping people find their passion. I’m fortunate that I found mine, and we need to get more people to find that same measure of passion,” Kappler said.

OSU serving up Thanksgiving dinner for Buckeyes staying on campus LOGAN HICKMAN Lantern reporter Some Ohio State students are planning to share their Thanksgiving meal with about 1,600 other Buckeyes. Thanksgiving Dinner — sponsored by the Office of International Affairs, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, University Residences and Dining Services and the OSU Alumni Association — is a traditional Thanksgiving meal expected to feed about 1,600 members of the OSU community Thursday in an effort to bring Buckeyes closer together, said Maureen Miller, an OIA spokeswoman. “For those students, faculty and staff who are unable to go home for the holiday, it’s nice to have a location to come to right on campus that has that same kind of family atmosphere — where people can come together, share a meal, share conversation

and laughter for a couple of hours on a special day,” Miller said. “It’s going to be just like sitting down at your family’s dinner table.” OSU’s Thanksgiving feast started 21 years ago when some OSU graduate students held a Thanksgiving gathering at the Hale Black Cultural Center, according to the OIA website. This year’s meal is set to include roasted turkey with gravy, stuffing, sweet potatoes, greens, corn bread and pumpkin pie, among other traditional Thanksgiving dishes, Miller said. To help accommodate the expected guests, there are two separate meals scheduled: one to be served at 11:45 a.m. and one at 2 p.m. at the Ohio Union. Students, faculty, staff and their families can attend the event for free by getting tickets at 100 Oxley Hall, the Hale Center or the Ohio Union Information Center. In addition to a wholesome meal, Miller said the event is meant to educate guests about the meaning behind Thanksgiving with a slide show presentation planned to display facts about the holiday’s origin.

“We like to offer an educational component to Thanksgiving Dinner since there’s so many international students and scholars who attend the event,” Miller said. Shantae Brooks, a fourth-year in fashion and retail studies and a student co-chair for the event, said she hopes the meal will educate guests on the importance of diversity as well. “Our mission is to bring these people together to engage in an educational and positive dialogue while learning about different cultures and the people around them,” Brooks said in an email. In addition to the food and brief history lesson, Brooks said attendees are slated to hear from guest speakers, including OSU Interim President Joseph Alutto, Hale Center director Larry Williamson and the Thanksgiving Dinner student co-chairs. Gina Price, a third-year in agribusiness and applied economics from Atlanta, said she plans to

continued as Thanksgiving on 3A Coach from 1A Camillus called for Buchman’s termination Wednesday in an email addressed to Smith, presenting three reasons why he thought Buchman should be fired. “First, she either permitted or fostered the sexually hostile and inappropriate cheerleading environment reflected in the results of the BumbreyHollins investigation,” Camillus wrote. He listed the second reason as Buchman’s failure to report Ellis’ sexual harassment complaints and the third as her kicking Ellis off of the cheerleading team. Ellis was dismissed from the team by Buchman, Camillus told The Lantern. Camillus said Ellis was told he was removed from the team for having a “bad attitude,” but Ellis reported to OSU he believed his dismissal from the team was in retaliation for his report of Hollins’ sexual harassment. Camillus spoke on behalf of Ellis, whom he did not allow to speak with The Lantern. Camillus, who said he was hired because Ellis was “concerned about retaliation,” said he felt it was in Ellis’ best interest for him not to speak with the media. Lewis told The Lantern in an email Nov. 19 that OSU “conducted a complete investigation into the allegation that coach Buchman retaliated against a student in connection with reporting on these matters.” “The university found no evidence of retaliation by the coach,” Lewis said in the email. “Because of FERPA regulations, we cannot discuss additional details of the student’s conduct or his allegations of retaliation at this time without consent from the student. However, we can say that students may be dismissed from athletic teams for a range of


It’s nice to have a location to come to right on campus that has that same kind of family atmosphere — where people can come together, share a meal, share conversation and laughter for a couple of hours on a special day

reasons. Such dismissals are taken very seriously and any decision to dismiss a student from a team is made only after a careful review of the specific facts and circumstances. That process was followed here.” Camillus said Monday he and his client hoped the coaches’ firings will “spare future students at Ohio State from being subject to the same kind of harassment and mistreatment that Cody faced.” “Neither Cody nor I take any personal joy in seeing somebody lose their job — that’s a difficult thing for anybody to go through. That said, we both feel, obviously as reflected in my letter to Gene Smith, that this was the right and the necessary thing to do,” Camillus said. “We are at least relieved that Ohio State has stepped forward to do the right thing.” The new interim coach, Chorba, was announced as one of OSU’s two new assistant coaches Aug. 22, though Wallenberg said Chorba and Ray Sharp, an assistant coach, were hired by OSU in July. Chorba, who previously served as the head cheerleading coach at Illinois State University, told The Lantern in an interview Aug. 28 he believed overall, OSU provided the “best cheerleading experience in the country.” “I’m just thrilled to be here,” Chorba said. “Being able to coach one of the most elite cheerleading teams in the country, it’s a great thing. To be able to offer that to the kids is wonderful to be a part of.” Buchman told The Lantern Aug. 28 Chorba was the “whole package deal” for what OSU was looking for in an assistant coach. “When we were looking for a coach, we looked for somebody with experience, with the skill mindset, with the same morals and values that we value here at Ohio State,” Buchman said.

University Police Chief Paul Denton told The Lantern Sunday the messages about knocking down fences or jumping early didn’t “give (police) much concern.” “We’ve got great partnership and trust in the students as well from a public safety standpoint,” Denton said. “I don’t think that will happen (students tearing down fences) and I sincerely believe our students will come and have a good time as they always have ... but there will be a police and security presence continuing over the next few days.” “We’re ready, as we always are (if students jump early).” Some OSU students who participated in Monday’s jump said they did it to continue the legacy. “We wanted a night that is unregulated and something the students can own and can continue a really fun and really great tradition,” said Morgan Johnson, a first-year in public affairs. Patrick Mortenson, a fourth-year in political science who jumped Monday, said he strongly disagreed with the university’s new restrictions. “This is what the tradition is all about. Every year I have been here, the university has sent me an email saying don’t do the jump, it’s not a tradition,” Mortenson said. “Yet we come here and we do the jump every f------ year. And it’s been like that every year since my dad was here, since my grandpa was here. So why say it’s a tradition but make it an official jump day?” After the first Monday Mirror Lake jump Facebook event was taken down, Ben Baaske, an OSU student in anthropology, said he decided to make a new page. “I was part of the Facebook page that was put up initially by a guy ... All of a sudden it was gone. It was removed. So we were just kinda messing around for a little bit, like someone should start up a new one. I was like, ‘OK.’ And I just started one up. And then all of a sudden this happened,” Baaske told The Lantern Monday. He said about 50 people from the Facebook group showed up Monday at 11:45 p.m. to walk together to the lake. Impromptu jumps have occurred in the past, including in 2011 when thousands of students gathered at the lake to celebrate the announcement of Osama Bin Laden’s death. A Cleveland-area lawyer told The Lantern Monday the new measures planned for Tuesday’s jump could increase OSU’s liability if a student gets injured. “It sounds like they’re increasing their liability by regulating it,” said the lawyer, who has worked in insurance defense and personal injury plaintiff practice throughout his career and requested anonymity because of the ongoing nature of the

Liability concerns, while important, are secondary to our efforts to promote the safety of our students,” Lewis said in a Monday email. He did not provide additional comment about what liability concerns OSU would face if students were injured or in response to the attorney’s statement that the university’s liability could be increased. Baaske said he doesn’t know if he’ll jump again Tuesday night or not. “I have to get ahold of a bracelet first,” he said. “I don’t have one of those yet, but I might look into it.” Liz Young contributed to this article.

Shelby Bradford, a then-first-year in chemistry major, gives blood as part of the annual Blood Battle, a competition between OSU and Michigan to see who can donate the most blood, at Baker Hall Nov. 15, 2010.

Battles from 1A Carly Abraham, a first-year in chemistry, said connecting the rivalry to the Blood Battle is an effective strategy. “It is definitely a good strategy to get people to donate blood by saying it was OSU versus Michigan because that is what got me (to donate),” Abraham said. “But it is obviously a great thing to donate blood because it only takes a couple minutes out of your day to sit here and save three lives.” The Battle Against Hunger Another competition seeking to channel the passion of the rivalry is the Battle Against Hunger, sponsored by Pay It Forward. The Battle Against Hunger aims to encourage OSU students to become more aware of hunger in their communities and fight that issue with various student organizations having food drives on campus. The organizations then report their collections to Pay It Forward to see which school can donate the most canned goods. Marla Trinidad, a fourth-year in classics and globalization and the executive director for Pay It Forward, said her organization helps contributes to the competition in several ways. “We provided the resources such as locations for weighing food, places to donate, information for organizations that have never conducted a food drive,” Trinidad said. “A lot of it was promoting their events.” Trinidad said the organization used social media to get messages about the Battle Against Hunger out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Thanksgiving from 2A attend the event because it’s too pricey to return home for the short break from classes. “With only a week between Thanksgiving and Christmas break, it’s not worth the money to fly home,” Price said. Although she can’t be with her family for the holiday, Price said she’s thankful OSU is having the dinner. “It means a lot because I get to bond with my Buckeye family and still have a fun Thanksgiving,” Price said. “I hope to still have the homey feel of Thanksgiving and the holidays away from home.”

She said connecting the rivalry to the Battle Against Hunger adds to the excitement of the competition. “Competition usually adds a little excitement to any activity that you do,” Trinidad said. “So many people are passionate about being a Buckeye and to connect it with the passion of helping other people and making a difference in the community is a really great connection … It’s a really cool thing to see how it can motivate students to fight the battle against hunger.” Pay It Forward is collaborating with about 17 student organizations on campus such as Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, the OSU Swim Club, Circle K Club and the Muslim Student Association. OSU has the lead so far, Trinidad said with more than 9,800 pounds of collected items compared to Michigan’s 2,200 pounds. Third-year in microbiology Mark Lampert, the vice president of campus engagement for Sigma Phi Epsilon, said the collaboration between Sigma Phi Epsilon and Pay It Forward contributed to the success of Sigma Phi Epsilon’s food drive this year. “Since we already do this food drive every year, we are trying make it more collaborative and (integrated) in the Ohio State community, while at the same time our big goal is fighting against hunger and poverty,” Lampert said. “It always feels good to beat Michigan and we were able to contribute something towards that. Our goal is always to help more and more people.” Justin Cline contributed to this article.

The food for the event is purchased from U.S. Foods, Miller said. Last year, leftovers from the event were donated to various homeless shelters, Miller said, but because of careful planning based on ticket distribution this year, she doesn’t expect there to be many leftovers. The amount of food prepared is relative to the number of guests expected to come, she said. Should there be an excess amount of guests — even though there hasn’t been in the past — Miller said OSU would do its best to make accommodations.

‘It’s not just another game’ ERIC SEGER Sports editor The message from Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer was clear: The Buckeyes game this weekend against archrival Michigan holds more weight than any other. “It’s not just another game. It’s not,” Meyer said Monday during his weekly press conference. The Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0) look to complete their second straight undefeated regular season Saturday when they pay a visit to Ann Arbor, Mich., to take on the Wolverines (7-4, 3-4) at 12 p.m.. Meyer said he didn’t realize how big of a game the yearly contest with Michigan is until he was named a graduate assistant at OSU in 1986, but did learn early on how much the rivalry meant. “I grew up in the ‘Ten Year War,’ and I learned to dislike Michigan at a very young age,” Meyer said. “But, no, you never really truly appreciate it until you’re behind the walls here and find out how serious it is.” After muttering the word “Michigan” and being told by a reporter he had done so, Meyer, perplexed, excused himself quickly. “Did I really?” Meyer asked. “Wow. I apologize.” The “Ten Year War” was a decade of games between OSU and Michigan between 1969-78, where legendary coaches Woody Hayes and Bo

The Buckeyes currently rank top in the Big Ten scoring an average 48.7 points per game, amassing a total of 221 over their past four contests. Redshirt-senior center Corey Linsley said all the high praise the offense is receiving goes out the window when it’s Michigan week. “We got to beat them. We’re going to put as many points as we need to beat them,” Linsley said Monday. “Defense is going to keep them to as little points as they can and I mean, it’s all about winning The Game this week.” The Game brings an added intensity to both the Woody Hayes Athletic Center and to Meyer, Shazier said. “You can just tell that when you walk into the hallways all you hear is ‘it’s time for war,’” Shazier said. “When we go through drills and everything, you can just look, just see the look in (Meyer’s) eyes. Just the rage that he wants to so win (this game) so bad.” The rage of their coach allows the rest of the players to stay focused on the only thing that matters: the game at hand. “It’s a one game season for us right now. All we’re worried about is the one in front of us. It’s The Game and that’s all we’re focused on right now,” redshirtsenior offensive lineman Jack Mewhort said. “We’ll handle the other stuff when we get there, but for right now, like I said, there’s only one that matters.”

Schembechler stood toe to toe in 10 games largely considered the best of the rivalry. “That rivalry’s been stimulated a long time ago, and we need to carry it on and make it stronger,” Meyer said. With such a great rivalry comes great memories, and for Meyer there is no exception. “I was driving to work on a Monday morning, I was a 21-year-old graduate assistant, and I look up on those twin towers by the stadium, and it says ‘Muck Fichigan’ in sheets hanging off,” Meyer said. “I said ‘That is really cool right there.’ And then they switched the ‘M’ and the ‘F’ and someone made them take it down.” Michigan coach Brady Hoke has seen his team struggle lately, losing three out of its last four games including a 24-21 decision at Iowa last week. The rivalry with OSU puts that on the back burner though. “It’s just such a great rivalry that we’re very fortunate to be able to play in, to be able to coach in,” Hoke said during a Monday press conference. “It’s the game that’s talked about, and it’s going to be a lot of fun on Saturday to play football.” Pulling the upset at home would put an end to OSU’s perfect season. It would also hurt the Buckeyes’ chances at a national title as they find themselves ranked third in the BCS, but Hoke said that’s something that isn’t discussed. “We don’t talk about that. We talk about ourselves. We focus on what we have to do. We’ve never, ever mentioned it and I won’t,” Hoke said. “That’s not what it’s about. It’s about us playing our best football for our seniors, and in the greatest rivalry in sport, that’s what it is.” It would appear that Meyer’s players understand the gravity of the final game of the regular season as well, many of whom still have a bad taste in their mouths from falling to the Wolverines 40-34 at Michigan Stadium in 2011. OSU is 23-1 since that game, though. “It’s a good feeling to know that we’re going back there and we got some momentum behind us,” junior defensive lineman Michael Bennett said Monday. “It’s a hard place to play … but it’ll be a fun game to get a W at their place.” The Buckeyes clinched the Big Ten Leaders Division Title against Indiana last Saturday, earning a spot in the conference title game against No. 11 Michigan State Dec. 7. Don’t expect them to be looking past Michigan with the date with the Spartans on the horizon, though. “We’re focused on this week like we are every year, regardless of our record or their record. It doesn’t matter,” Bennett said. “Whatever’s after this, it doesn’t matter. You have to win this game.” Junior linebacker Ryan Shazier agreed. “At the end of the year, it’s always to make sure you beat them guys. And that’s the main focus right now, to beat The Team Up North,” Shazier said Monday. “We’re not even focused on what’s ahead right now.”

Men’s basketball uses late run to top Wyoming, 65-50 MATTHEW MITHOEFER Senior Lantern reporter The Ohio State men’s basketball team used a 20-5 run in the last 13 minutes of play to secure its fifth victory of the season, defeating Wyoming 65-50. OSU senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. poured in a game-high 20 points on 5-8 shooting from 3-point land. Junior center Amir Williams did his part, recording a double-double with 12 points and 16 boards. “I thought that Lenzelle was the difference in the game,” Wyoming coach Larry Shyatt said. Despite only allowing an average of 23.5 points in the first half of its first four games, OSU gave up 34 in the first 20 minutes against the Cowboys. Wyoming shot 56 percent from the field and had 24 points in the paint before halftime. “Quite honestly, it was like a layup clinic,” OSU coach Thad Matta said about the opening half. The Buckeyes struggled containing Akron, Ohio, native Larry Nance Jr throughout. The 6-foot-8-inch junior forward had 11 points on 5-9 shooting in the first half, including multiple dunks. Nance finished with a doubledouble in his homecoming, scoring 17 points and collecting 12 rebounds. The Buckeyes leaned on 3-point shooting in the first half, tossing in six of 13 attempts. Smith Jr. accounted for half of those makes to give him a game-high of 12 points at the half. OSU made just 28.6 percent of its 3-pointers coming into Monday, tied for worst in the Big Ten with Indiana. Matta said Williams’ improved play and resulting defensive attention helped his team make open shots from the perimeter.

“It’s hard to leave (him defensively) now, and you saw the effects when they did,” Matta said about the added attention to the Buckeye center. OSU struggled to continue its hot shooting from deep to start the second half, as they missed three attempts from range in their first five possessions. The poor shooting allowed the Cowboys to get a three point advantage, 42-39, with 15:27 remaining, prompting Matta to call a timeout. Matta’s men responded with a 6-1 run, but a rocking Schottenstein Center was abruptly silenced by a technical foul call on junior guard Shannon Scott with 13:06 remaining after he appeared to knock over a Wyoming player with a forearm to the chest. Matta did not comment on the call after the game, as he said he was not watching Scott when it occurred. Junior guard Riley Grabau made both ensuing free throws for the Cowboys, tying the game at 45. OSU scored 12 of the game’s next 14 points to open up a 10 point lead with just under six minutes remaining. The Buckeyes would not look back, pushing the lead all the way to 15 at game’s end, OSU’s largest lead of the night. Wyoming failed to make a shot from the field in the game’s final 10 minutes. Junior forward LaQuinton Ross also struggled offensively, posting just three points and one rebound in 19 minutes of action in another disappointing performance. “He needs to make some shots,” Matta said. “LaQuinton needs to trust himself.” Matta said his starting five will not change before the next game. OSU is set to return to action Friday against North Florida at 5 p.m. in the Schottenstein Center.

Braxton Miller: ‘I was just having a little fun’ DAN HOPE Oller reporter Whether lined up as a quarterback or wide receiver, Ohio State junior quarterback Braxton Miller had no shortage of success running the ball against the Indiana defense in OSU’s 42-14 victory Saturday. “It would be hard for me to say that wasn’t the best he’s ever run that I’ve seen him play,” coach Urban Meyer said of Miller following the victory. On a day senior Carlos Hyde became the first running back to rush for 1,000 yards in a single season on a Meyer-coached team, it was Miller stole the spotlight. Miller led the Buckeyes with 144 rushing yards on just 13 attempts, the third game in his OSU career in which he averaged more than 11 yards per carry. The quarterback ran for two touchdowns, and neither lacked theatrics. He accentuated his first scoring run, a 37-yard scamper, with a somersault flip into the end zone over the right front pylon. “I was just having a little bit of fun,” Miller said after the game. OSU offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman did not find the end of Miller’s touchdown run as enjoyable. “He said he was just having fun out there, and

Junior quarterback Braxton Miller (5) runs the ball during a game against Indiana Nov. 23 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 42-14. I said, ‘Well, as long, you can have as much fun as you want, just don’t cost your team 15 yards,’” Herman said, who was worried about Miller picking up an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the celebration. Miller’s second touchdown run came on a play Herman named “Jazzy,” which began with Miller

lined up on the left side of the field as a wide receiver and redshirt-senior Kenny Guiton in his place at quarterback. Guiton started the play moving left toward Miller, but Miller came right on a reverse and took a pitch from Guiton. From there, Miller looked to pass but continued running forward and toward the right

side of the field, capping the play by leaping and extending over a hit from a defender for a five-yard touchdown. “It’s a run/pass option and (the Indiana defense) covered the routes actually really good,” Herman said. “(Miller) has a run/pass option to throw it to (junior tight end Jeff) Heuerman or run it in himself … he did a hell of a job finding the end zone.” Meyer said he was “hoping (Miller) would throw it.” “He’s a great athlete,” Meyer said of Miller. “I’d rather him not do that, but do what he’s got to do. He played really well today.” It was important for the Buckeyes to have success from multiple rushing threats Saturday, as OSU went with a run-heavy game plan on a snowy, windy day at Ohio Stadium. “I went out there in pregame warmups and (the weather) was certainly affecting a lot of the throws,” Herman said. “When Mother Nature tells you ‘Don’t throw the football,’ you better listen to her, because she’s pretty demanding when it comes to that.” Still, on a day the Buckeyes ran the ball 39 times and only had 17 passing attempts, Miller completed 11 passes for 160 yards and two touchdowns. Miller earned praise from Herman for three downfield throws that went for 25 yards or more:

sports Shazier first Buckeye with 20 tackles in single game since 2004 daniel rogers Asst. sports editor On a night dedicated to honoring the seniors on the No. 3-ranked Ohio State football team (11-0, 7-0), a junior linebacker was the center of attention. Ryan Shazier built on his career-high 16-tackle game the week before against Illinois by tallying another career-high against Indiana Saturday, this time recording 20 tackles in a game in which OSU clinched the Big Ten Leaders Division Title and a spot in the Big Ten Championship game Dec. 7. It was the first time since former Buckeye linebacker AJ Hawk’s game against Wisconsin Oct. 9, 2004, that an OSU player had 20 tackles in a game. After the game, Shazier said he wasn’t playing to have a big game, and just wanted to secure the victory against Indiana (4-7, 2-5). “I felt like I had a pretty good day, but I was just going and doing what I had to do,” Shazier said. “I didn’t know it was 20 tackles till the end of the game — I was just trying to do my job.” The five tackles for loss Shazier recorded, including a sack, ties a Buckeye record for tackles for a loss in a game, set by four players, most recently by John Simon Oct. 6, 2012, against Nebraska. The big motivation for Shazier against Indiana — and for most of the season — was senior safety Christian Bryant, Shazier said. “Lately, I’ve been playing for Christian. I feel like me and him are both out there together, so I’ve been playing for him,” Shazier said. “Today with the seniors (being honored), so I was playing for Christian and the seniors tonight to make sure they go out with a bang.” Bryant went down near the end of a 31-24 win against Wisconsin Sept. 28 with a broken ankle, and has been forced to sit out every game since. Defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell said a performance like Shazier’s isn’t something that can be coached. “Players make plays. You’d like to say you coach them up to do those things, but the reality is players make plays and he did a great job,” Fickell said. “We go back and watch the film and see those things but down on the field, it’s hard to really see those things, see a lot of things. I had no idea … hearing some of the offensive coaches come and say, ‘Wow, man, he really, he really was all over the place.’ And somebody says what he has in tackles, and I’m oblivious to it at times but he’s a special kid and he brings a lot to us.” Redshirt-junior cornerback Bradley Roby, who was honored as a senior Saturday after his decision to leave school early for the NFL, said he wasn’t surprised by Shazier having such a big game. “That’s what we ask him to do, we put him in the middle of the field and tell him to play center field,” Roby said. “He is able to move around and he’s fast, I think he did a very good job. He had like 20 tackles or something like that, so any time that happens it’s perfect.” Currently, Shazier is tied for second in the country with senior linebacker Shaquil Barrett of Colorado State with 20.5 tackles for loss and ranks 16th in total tackles with 109. Coach Urban Meyer said Shazier is playing very well, and is using emotion to drive his play. “He’s playing at a very high level. A very emotional guy … his heart is everything,” Meyer said. “He’s very, like I said, he wears his

And so do I. Very emotional player that plays that way on the field. Playing great right now, too.” Senior running back Carlos Hyde, who became the first running back coached by Meyer to run for 1,000 yards in a season, said Shazier is just playing like he always does. “He’s the best linebacker in the nation to me,” Hyde said. “And that’s how he plays every week, in and out. That’s how Shazier plays. I’m proud of him.” Despite OSU allowing two late touchdowns, Indiana failed to reach its season average of 36.8 points per game. Shazier said a big part of the defensive performance was the mentality of making sure the Hoosiers couldn’t find their way back into the game. “We were just talking about ‘Don’t relax, don’t settle down

because they have a wonderful offense,’” Shazier said. “They can get back into a game like (that). So we have to keep pushing the pedal.” Next up, OSU is slated to take a trip to Ann Arbor, Mich., for The Game against Michigan Saturday at noon. The Buckeye defense will hope to shut down a Michigan (7-4, 3-4) offense that is scoring an average of 33.1 points per game this season.

Miller from 4A a 39-yard touchdown completion to junior wide receiver Devin Smith on a post route across the middle of the end zone, and two deep completions on seam routes by Heuerman for 34 and 25-yard gains. “Three unbelievable throws that stick out,” Herman said. Overall, Miller accounted for more than 64 percent of OSU’s total offense Saturday. Miller’s game was not without its mistakes, though. He had two fumbles, one of which was recovered by Indiana freshman defensive tackle Darius Latham for a takeaway. He also had a pass tipped in the backfield by Hoosiers’ redshirt-sophomore cornerback Michael Hunter and intercepted by redshirt-senior safety Greg Heban. “We got to protect the football better at our position,” Herman said. “I did a poor job of coaching him on that corner blitz that got tipped and intercepted, but the two fumbles from our position are certainly unacceptable.” Overall, however, Herman said Miller has been playing the best football of his OSU career “by far” this season. “(Miller) took a little step back against Illinois, didn’t have his greatest game, but I got asked if that was a cause for concern after that game and I said, ‘As long as it’s not a pattern,’” Herman said. “He prepared really, really well this week and played his you-know-what off, and yeah, I’m proud of him.” Miller only played one series in OSU’s second game against San Diego State and missed the next


two games after suffering a sprained MCL in his left knee. In nine games, Miller has completed 67.7 percent of his passing attempts for 1,626 yards, 19 touchdowns and four interceptions, while he has also rushed for 738 yards and five touchdowns. “He’s a freak,” junior defensive tackle Michael Bennett said. “He’s really developed as a passer this year, which was great to see because everyone knows his run threat. But you see him making passes that a lot of people can’t make, and I feel like he’s really starting to develop into that role of an NFL quarterback.” Statistically, Miller’s last two games against Illinois and Indiana have been his lowest passing outputs of the season in terms of yards, with the exception of the San Diego State game, in which he only attempted two passes before leaving with injury. But in those two games, he has rushed for the same combined number of rushing yards, 328, as he had in his first five games back from injury. “Good to see Braxton back out there looking like Braxton,” Hyde said. “I love to watch Braxton running the ball. He’s a very exciting player. Any minute, he can break off that long one or make somebody look silly, and it was exciting to be able to watch him.” Miller will look to continue making big plays, and the Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0) will be looking to extend their school-record win streak to 24, when they travel to Ann Arbor, Mich., to play Michigan (7-4, 3-4) Saturday. Kickoff is set for 12 p.m.

studentvoice OSU ‘condoning’ Safety measures will make jump less safe Mirror Lake jump Letter to the editor: In years past, the Ohio State University has made it a point to send emails to the students to discourage them from jumping in Mirror Lake as part of the Beat Michigan Week agenda. They remind the students that this is not a school sanctioned event and that they do not condone this sacred tradition. Obviously, the purpose of the events that I describe above is for legal protection in the case of a hypothetical tragedy. Now that OSU is distributing wristbands, it has contradicted its previous stance (discouraging students from jumping and Mirror Lake being a non-sanctioned event) which it claims to still uphold today. By distributing wristbands to students, the university is completely condoning the actions of these students. The new regulations of Mirror Lake illustrate the fact that this is definitely a school sanctioned event. Thus, OSU becomes more liable as more wristbands are distributed. These regulations are unnecessary and will become detrimental not only to the university but the OSU experience that every single student has the right to experience if he or she chooses. Ultimately, I strongly believe the wristbands will be as effective as the campus smoking ban, requiring BuckIDs for concerts at the Oval and the imaginary walk zone on the Oval. I believe that I speak for the student body, alumni and the entire Buckeye Nation when I say that as Americans we are endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of Mirror Lake. Go Bucks. Matt Stewart Fourth-year in history

daniel chi / For The Lantern

Ohio State fans jump in Mirror Lake as part of a Beat Michigan Week tradition in 2012. For this year’s jump, participants will be required to obtain a wristband in advance and file through a single entry point in order to reach the lake. Letter to the editor: Yesterday, I wrote The Lantern to explain why the new “safety measures” promulgated by the Office of Student Life will actually make the Mirror Lake jump more dangerous than it has previously been. I’ve calmed down, given the policies more thought, and I now realize that my criticism did not go far enough. There are tens of thousands of adjectives in the English language, yet not one of them adequately describes the degree of ignorance our administrators possess with regard to the Mirror Lake jump. One only needs to take a closer look at Javaune Adams-Gaston’s recent statements to bring this observation to light. In her weekly Student Life letter, she wrote, “If you do choose to jump … I suggest that you do not drink.” She might as well stand on her roof tonight before bed, shake her fist toward the sky and yell, “Sun, you better not rise tomorrow!” She told The Lantern that “we have student leaders and we consult with them and they give us their input and we appreciate it.” But there is a difference between “appreciating” feedback and “listening.” The Undergraduate Student Government released a statement saying the new policies are “misguided.” I also cannot find one positive

statement about the regulations on Twitter or Facebook, either. Again, who exactly was she listening to? Most notably, she said, “the well-being of Ohio State students is our top priority and we will take efforts to … (maintain) appropriate levels of safety and security.” If this was her — and other administrators’ — true motivation, the university would have taken reasonable and sensible safety measures Tuesday night. Thoroughly salt the sidewalks and concrete surrounding the lake. Clean the lake before students jump. Increase lighting. Provide trained lifeguards. Place more firstrespondent units at Neil Avenue, and keep those paths clear so they can have immediate access. Hell, maybe heat the lake for a night. Is OSU implementing these solutions already? I don’t know. But as I noted yesterday, the new policies will actually increase the dangers associated with the jump. And because I wrote about that yesterday, let me get to the real issue. These policies are not at all designed to increase safety. They are designed to discourage students from jumping and make the entire experience an inconvenience. Think about it. Wristbands will not increase safety for jumpers unless they can inflate and prevent students from drowning. Instead, the obvious purpose of requiring a wristband

is to waste a lot of people’s time and deter students from going. Furthermore, having Student Life officers (instead of police) restrict access at the single entrance point will likely be as effective as sending a pack of Corgis to protect the Mexican border. As everybody knows, it will just cause a long line and expose students to the freezing cold for a longer period of time than usual. Again, a huge inconvenience that will deter some students from jumping. I could go on, but it’s unnecessary. OSU constantly boasts how we are (statistically speaking) the smartest student body in the history of this great university. Most students reading this are fully capable of seeing behind the veil of all the “student safety” rhetoric and realize what the university is trying to do with these new policies. OSU and Adams-Gaston would therefore be wise to actually listen to us. I might be graduating, but I hope this administration does not make this mistake again next year.

C-Bus native to return for ‘A Christmas Carol’ Abigail Hofrichter Lantern reporter

“desert Skies” Beachwood Sparks “Honest” Future “Skull Worship” The Warlocks


The Friday after Thanksgiving, commonly referred to as Black Friday, is a holiday in and of itself for many. It marks a day of retail shopping frenzy as well as the beginning of the Christmas season. This Black Friday, Columbus will kick off the Christmas season with the opening performance of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” The Nebraska Theatre Caravan is set to perform during Thanksgiving weekend at Ohio Theatre with Columbus native Brent Burington playing the main character, Ebenezer Scrooge. Published in 1843, the story of Ebenezer Scrooge has since been used for public readings, performed on stage and adapted into movies. Burington said the story has a timeless nature because of its relatable character development as well as its adaptability. “Everyone finds themselves in a Scrooge mood or has known someone who has sort of lost that Christmas spirit,” Burington said. “It is not at all outside the realm of possibility.” Third-year in biomedical engineering, Rachel Freese, said although she has never seen a visual adaptation of the story, she understands from reading the book why it is so popular. “It’s a feel-good story at the end, because you see the transformation of a character and I think audiences like that a lot,” Freese said. Burington said the relatable aspect of his character is one of the reasons he loves this production. He was exposed to writers such as William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens at a young age nand said he grew up with the story of “A Christmas Carol.”

“My favorite thing about doing Scrooge is his journey on stage,” Burington said. “He goes from being so despicable to this guy who is so different; maybe a little odd, but everyone wants to be around him and that is so fantastic.” Burington, who has been playing Scrooge for more than 22 years in his own one-man production of “A Christmas Carol,” said this version of the tale was different enough to draw his attention. Burlington wrote and performed his own version prior to touring with The Nebraska Theatre Caravan because he was dissatisfied with most adaptations of the story he had seen. One of the reasons he enjoys working with The Nebraska Theatre Caravan is the musical component, Burington said. The show features traditional English carols that range from wellknown songs such as “Away in a Manger” to lesser-known carols such as “The Boar’s Head.” “They’re songs that not all American audiences may know,” Burington said. “It’s a wonderful experience to hear these new, different traditional songs you get to learn.” Although Katelyn Matuska, a fourth-year in political science and women’s studies, has not seen a staged production of “A Christmas Carol,” she enjoys the story. “I saw a movie version when I was a kid,” said Katelyn Matuska, a fourth-year in political science and women’s studies. “I think it’s a cute story and I’d still be interested in seeing the play.” The show is slated to open at the Ohio Theatre Friday at 7:30 p.m. Additional performances are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $22-$32 and are available at the CAPA Ticket Center and Ticketmaster.

Swift wins big, Cyrus shocks again, One Direction impresses at AMAs Kristine Varkony Senior Lantern reporter She may have written a love song dedicated to being 22 years old, but 23 is proving to be a good year for Taylor Swift. Swift won the Favorite Country Female Artist award at the American Music Awards for the sixth consecutive year. Swift, wearing a gold sequined mini dress, was “shocked” to win as she swept the 2013 AMAs, which aired Sunday. She collected four of the five awards she was nominated for, including the top honor of 2013 Artist of the Year. With more than 37 million Twitter followers, and their track record of voting for her, one would think she always had at least a few awards on lock. Justin Timberlake was the man of the evening, winning three awards including both Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Soul/R&B Male awards. Luke Bryan took home the Favorite Country Male Artist award almost immediately prior to his performance of his latest hit, “That’s My Kind of Night.” By the end of the show, I had almost completely forgotten all of this because of some mild — yet still completely bizarre — Miley Cyrus antics involving a giant lip-syncing,

The singer won four of her five nominations. crying, winking, animated cat performing “Wrecking Ball.” I’m also pretty sure the creative minds behind the evening’s live performances have never attended an Open Doors session via Ohio State Student Life. Katy Perry’s opening number, “Unconditionally,” involved her dressing as a Japanese geisha with similarly dressed backup dancers, and Ke$ha and Pitbull (also the host of the show) performed their duet,

“Timber,” to a cowboys-andIndians-themed stage setup and backup dancers. Not all of the AMA performances offended large populations of people, though. One Direction sang “Story of My Life,” and it was wonderful. How old is Harry Styles? Am I allowed to have a crush on him? Because I think I do after that serenade I’m quite sure he sang right at me. One Direction also took home two awards, including beating

out Swift and Timberlake in the Favorite Pop/Rock Album category. The three-hour show also featured two especially beautiful performances by New Artist of the Year winner Ariana Grande singing “Tattooed Heart” and Christina Aguilera with A Great Big World singing “Say Something.” Rihanna took home the first ever AMA Icon Award as well as the Favorite Soul/R&B Female Artist. She performed her hit “Diamonds,” but she looked more like a dark mermaid than a diamond in her tiny, two-piece ensemble. Certainly one theme of the evening was performers winning in their respective categories. Justin Timberlake and The Tennessee Kids sang JT’s latest hit, “Drink You Away,” and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Imagine Dragons and Florida Georgia Line with Nelly all performed before taking awards home for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album, Favorite Alternative Rock Artist and Single of the Year, respectively. And what would an awards show be without a Lady Gaga spectacle? Lady Gaga and R. Kelly took the stage with her new song, “Do What U Want,” in a theatrical, Oval Office-themed performance. I’m sure this won’t be the last we see of Lady Gaga this awards season.

Campus gains first-ever jerky store, offers several exotic flavors Erica Mauder Lantern reporter


Kangaroo, alligator and elk are just a few of the exotic jerky flavors that one new store near campus offers. Tommy’s Jerky & Smokie Outlet store, a company that originated in Chardon, Ohio, opened its Columbus location’s doors Nov. 15, marking its place as the first-ever jerky spot on campus. Robert Nicholson, owner of nine Tommy’s Jerky and Smokie Outlet stores, including the one near campus, said the store’s location across the street from the Ohio Union is a prime spot for business. “I feel like the students and faculty here at Ohio State are jerky lovers, and giving them options and choices for a great snack that’s really convenient (and) really healthy would really respond well to that (location),” Nicholson said. “Being on campus makes it easier for students to find us, which is great, and having the Union nearby makes it easier to direct people to the store.” Tommy’s Jerky & Smoky Outlet store is associated with the Nicholson Center, a nonprofit organization “that provides employment and training for adults with developmental disabilities or special needs.” Nicholson opened the Warren, Ohiobased center in February 2009 while he was a student at OSU, and he said its mission is the reason he got involved with Tommy’s. “I wanted to create employment opportunities for people with disabilities to work in the community, and so I started working with Tommy, and that’s how I got the seven stores relatively quickly — essentially a franchise operation,” Nicholson said. “Tommy’s has been the most successful venture I’ve had at creating jobs for people with disabilities.” Tommy Baker, president and CEO of Tommy’s Jerky Outlet, said customer satisfaction is a priority for him. “The experience would be serving them on a personal level and on a product level and at the end of the day, they bought something that they like and met people they can trust,” he said.

Tommy’s Jerky & Smokie Outlet store is located across from the Ohio Union at 1758 N. High St. Shoppers who enter the store are greeted and surrounded by a variety of 50 different jerkies and smokies. Guests are encouraged to sample anything in the store to prevent them from buying something they don’t like. Teriyaki and barbecue are standard flavors when it comes to jerky, but Tommy’s also offers customers more exotic jerkies, such as elk, kangaroo, alligator, salmon and buffalo. For hot lovers, ground zero is a popular choice.

Guide to College Fashion

Style, safety coincide for Mirror Lake BREANNA SOROKA Senior Lantern reporter Every year, students participate in the tradition of leaping into the depths of an icy Mirror Lake in preparation for the game of the year against That Team Up North. This is not a time to bring out your cutest outfits, though — rather, it’s a time to show your creative side with clothes you have little to no attachment to, since they’ll end up ruined anyway. Keep reading to learn how to keep your clothing as protected as possible for the event ahead. Keep it close The tighter your clothes, the less likely they are to slide right off your body or weigh you down once you’re actually in the water. To combat the freezing temperatures, leggings are your best bet. If you have available (and are willing to sacrifice) a fitted, long-sleeved shirt, this would also be a good option. If the water’s chill doesn’t factor into your outfit decisions, though, feel free to wear shorts and a tank, or even an old sports bra — as long as what you’re wearing is sitting flat against your body, you shouldn’t be in danger of losing it. Duct tape is your friend Even though fitted clothing are usually fine, extra precautions never hurt. Taping your shoes and socks to your feet, your shirt to your body, or really taping anything to anything is a great way to feel safer in your garments as well as add one extra layer of insulation against the cold. This is an especially useful trick if you’re planning on wearing flipflops, which would likely slide off

Jerky from 8A Mark LaHue, a third-year in finance, said he had never seen a beef jerky store before Tommy’s hit campus. “It was great,� LaHue said. “I love how they allowed me to try multiple ones because when you look at a bag of beef jerky you don’t know, unless you make it, what you are getting. So I probably just tried just six or seven of them moving up (the) Scoville scale of peppers, but it was great. I ended up with Afterburner jerky.� The Scoville scale of peppers is used to measure the spicy heat of chili peppers. The prices of regular jerky and smokies range from $8.99 to about $24 depending on the size, and the exotic jerkies are $14.99. It is not just the wide variety of jerky that makes Tommy’s jerky stand out among the rest, it is the quality, Baker said. “No fillers, high in protein, very, very low sodium and no fat at all — that’s what makes it (Tommy’s jerky) different,� Baker said. “It’s made fresh and ready to order, not just sitting at a warehouse for a month.� Nicholson also said the quality of jerky in the store is different from more commercial brands. “So when you think of beef jerky, you think of a Slim Jim, and the quality differences in a Slim Jim and Tommy’s is prestige,� he said. “So you drive a Maserati and you drive an Edsel, you are like, ‘Oh, there is a difference in cars.’ Well, there is a difference in jerky, too.� Individuals at the Nicholson Center make different products, with candles as the first and most successful product, Nicholson said. These candles and other future products such as salsa can be found and bought at Tommy’s Jerky and Outlet Store, too. Nicholson nor Vince Yoder, the general manager, disclosed information about the cost of the location. Tommy’s Jerky & Smokie Outlet is located at 1758 N. High St.

To ensure you don’t lose any clothing during the Mirror Lake jump, utilize duct tape to secure your shoes, socks or even your shirt. immediately without some sort of adhesive. There’s no such thing as being too safe, so don’t be afraid to layer the tape on and hope for the best. The older, the better You’re likely going to be tossing anything you wear after jumping in Mirror Lake, so why not wear something you were thinking of doing this with already? Whether that means a dingy shirt, or ripped leggings, or those tennis shoes that just don’t fit your feet anymore — as long as you aren’t wearing something you could see yourself

wearing again in a normal setting, chances are you’ve made a good choice. Keep add-ons minimal Accessorizing for an event like this is a huge liability for anything you could possibly lose during the jump. A wristband allowing you to participate in the Mirror Lake jump should be your only accessory. Any hair accessories, like bandanas or headbands, will easily slip out and sink to the bottom of the cloudy water, never to be seen again. Jewelry will likely be ruined if it even manages to stay attached

to your person. If you’re the type of person who can’t live without adding some sort of personal sparkle to your outfit, why not try body paint? Anything related to Ohio State can be the perfect accessory that you won’t feel awful for losing or ruining. Above all, make sure safety is your No. 1 concern when preparing for the jump. The most stylish people there are going to be the ones who are comfortable and not posing a danger to themselves or others.
