Maryland to join Big Ten as 13th member

The Game endures

The state of the OSU-Michigan rivalry couldn’t be in better shape as the schools prepare to face-off Saturday.

[ a+e ]

The University of Maryland is the 13th team in the history of the Big Ten Conference. Maryland’s Board of Regents voted “overwhelmingly” to approve the university’s application to the Big Ten, and current conference university presidents assembled for a Monday conference to unanimously approve the school’s admittance. Maryland’s move to the Big Ten will take effect July 1, 2014. Maryland athletics, which bears the nickname “Terrapins,” a kind of turtle, will abandon the Atlantic Coast Conference after nearly six decades of membership. Maryland is expected to negotiate down the ACC’s $50 million exit fee to help facilitate the conference switch. Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith welcomed Maryland and its fans to the conference during a Monday press conference at the Fawcett Center. Elsewhere on campus, OSU students are split when it comes to the Big Ten’s latest addition. Maryland President Wallace D. Loh said talks about the school’s move to the Big Ten began to heat up about two weeks ago. The Big Ten move, Loh said, will help stabilize its athletics department’s finances.




“This is, today, a watershed moment for Maryland,” Loh said during a Monday press conference at the university’s student union in College Park, Md. “Membership in the Big Ten is in the strategic interest in the University of Maryland. As members … we will be able to ensure the financial stability of (Maryland athletics) for decades to come.” As Loh spoke, he was joined on an elevated platform by coaches from 15 of the university’s 20 athletics teams,

as well as athletic director Kevin Anderson, Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany and university Chancellor William E. “Brit” Kirwan, a former OSU president. Smith extended a welcome to the entire University of Maryland community. “We look forward to having you as a member of our family and embracing your rich tradition and everything that you mean to higher education and intercollegiate athletics,” Smith

said. “It’s a great move for our conference. When you think about where the landscape is today (and) what is happening in intercollegiate athletics, there is going to be, and, I think, as we move toward the future and years out, there will continue to be some change. Maryland is a great addition to our conference, so we’re looking forward to getting down to the details of trying to deal with the scheduling issues.” Rutgers could be added as the Big Ten’s 14th team Tuesday, according to multiple reports. Smith did not comment on that possibility, however, saying instead, “today is about Maryland.” Delany also declined to comment on the possibility of a Rutgers addition during the press conference in College Park. The president of Maryland since Nov. 1, 2010, Loh spoke of having to face student-athletes after a commission decided to cut teams from the university’s athletic department. Maryland cut seven of its sports programs were cut earlier this year due to a multimillion-dollar deficit, according to a Washington Post report. Men’s tennis, men’s and women’s swimming, competitive cheer, women’s water polo, men’s cross country and men’s indoor track

I’m trying to be as optimistic as possible and having faith in Ohio State making the right decision. There is nothing we can really do about it, but time will tell. Kelly Dawes Owner of College Traditions “Their current base of business with Ohiobased companies — including packaging, freight, blank apparel, corrugation and insurance services — is expected to double as a result of this agreement,” the press release said. While concerned about the contract’s effects, Dawes said she sees the issue’s silver lining. She said the choice to deal with J. America is better than the alternative: contracting with the Dallas Cowboys. A contract with the Dallas Cowboy’s Silver Star Merchandising has been protested over the past year by members of the student group United Students Against Sweatshops, who have accused the company of using sweatshop labor. Dawes said she was pleased about the university’s decision to go with a different company. “I think we are all happy that Silver Star didn’t get it because of how their business practices (are) and that sort of thing,” Dawes said. “I’m trying to be as optimistic as possible and having faith in Ohio State making the right decision. There is nothing we can really do about it, but time will tell.”

Some local business owners have expressed concerns about how the recently announced Ohio State apparel contract will affect their clothing orders and memorabilia diversity in the coming months. OSU agreed to a 10-year, $97 million deal with two apparel and retail businesses, J. America and Fanatics Inc., to exclusively produce and sell university apparel. J. America and Fanatics will pay $23 million up front for exclusive rights for design, marketing, production, retail and distribution of all apparel, according to a Thursday university press release. Columbus’ manufacturers and retailers have voiced concerns over the agreement that was announced Nov. 15, afraid it will monopolize available OSU merchandise and cut down on diversity between stores. Mitchell Hirsch, CEO of Art Tees, Inc. said he thought the deal won’t provide the university body with adequate OSU apparel. “What I wonder about is right now we’re printing an order for the hospital, (Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital). They have an event next month,” Hirsch said. “It’s 300 sweatshirts. Is J. America going to print the 300 shirts for them?” He said in addition to OSU departments that order shirts from him, he is concerned about the new clothing firms’ ability to serve student organizations. He provides departments and student organizations with small orders. “Is J. America going to print 15 shirts? Because all

the student organizations want something printed with Ohio State on it,” Hirsch said. Manufacturers are not the only ones affected by the new licensing deal. Kelly Dawes, owner of College Traditions, a Lane Avenue retailer, said her business will probably be affected by decreased product variety. “I am hoping we will still have enough product,” Dawes said. She said she might need to find other products to sell as a result of the contract, but that isn’t ideal. “I hope I don’t have to do that, I mean it’s my understanding that J. America will sub-license,” Dawes said. “Who knows, it’s hard to say.” Mark Carcraft, textbook supervisor for campus retailer Buckeye Books said he thought the deal will likely have a similar effect on his company. “We have a lot of different merchandise that is licensed from other smaller retailers,” Carcraft said. “An agreement like that will probably cut down on the amount of people we could buy things from.” According to an OSU press release, local manufacturers will have an opportunity to continue producing OSU apparel. “Through J. America and Fanatics, Ohio State may continue to use Ohio-based companies as sub-licenses, suppliers, embroiders and screen printers,” the release said. Hirsch said working through the new licenses is the route his business will most likely pursue. “We’ll approach them to see, you know, if we can keep printing for the stores that we already print for,” he said. The release said the deal will not hurt local businesses.

Rape isn’t taken lightly at Ohio State, but officials said reporting it can be a difficult decision for many victims. “The university takes this very seriously,” said Dave Isaacs, spokesman for the OSU Office of Student Life. Several rapes have been reported this academic year. A rape and a sexual imposition were reported in Park-Stradley Hall this semester, along with a rape that was reported in the Neil Avenue Building near MarketPlace. A rape was also reported in Morrill Tower on Sept. 9, according to the Ohio State Police log. The Park-Stradley and Neil Avenue cases are pending investigation, and the Morrill Tower case has been closed.

Despite the reports, Deputy Chief Richard Morman of University Police said OSU has not seen an increase in sex crimes. According to Ohio law, rape occurs when: “The other person’s ability to resist or consent is substantially impaired because of a mental or physical condition or because of advanced age, and the offender knows or has reasonable cause to believe that the other person’s ability to resist or consent is substantially impaired because of a mental or physical condition or because of advanced age.” “Each case is different,” Isaacs said. While the details of the cases may vary, Isaacs said, “one of our first concerns is whether the student is safe.” Student Life offers several support offices for victims of sexual assault including medical help, counseling and consultations. Isaacs said the university covers the cost of counseling and consultation services.

“Any of our services can help a student through the process. Any one department will involve the right department … a student doesn’t need to know the right place to go,” Isaacs said. At OSU, the privacy of the victims is “very, very important … both for legal reasons and to protect the student,” Isaacs said. The only time anyone outside of the case and within the university will be notified of the instance, Isaacs explained, is if a student lives in a residence hall and reports the incident to hall staff. At this point, the report will be given to the hall director, and from there they are very cautious about who to involve from the outside. If a student lives in a residence hall, he or she can work with Student Life to be moved to another location. “It is ultimately up to the student if they want to involve the police,” Isaacs said.

campus Freshmen prepare for first Mirror Lake jump Tuesday fawad cheema Senior Lantern reporter By the end of Fall Semester, freshmen have started to run out of firsts at Ohio State. However the Mirror Lake jump the Tuesday before the football game against Michigan is a first that is still anticipated. At least for a few more hours. The jump is an OSU tradition, but it isn’t sanctioned by the university. Vice President of Student Life Javaune AdamsGaston sent an email to students Monday morning, urging them not to jump in the lake, as the event has been marked with illness, injury and arrests in the past. “Ohio State has many wonderful traditions. The Mirror Lake jump is not one of them. And I strongly encourage you not to participate,� Adams-Gaston said in the email. She reminded students of the rocky and garbage-lined lake bottom, shallow water and cold air to deter jumpers, but the annual email won’t resonate with some. Holden Simon, a first-year in biology, said she’s concerned about the weather but plans to jump anyway because of the tradition. “The biggest concerns I have are that it’s going

to be really cold and duck poop for sure, but I’m not too worried,� Simon said. “I do plan on jumping. The school is big about tradition so it’s just one of the things we do here.� Tuesday evening the temperature is expected to drop to 41 degrees with a 20 percent chance of rain, according to The Weather Channel. The weather is expected to be similar to last year’s Mirror Lake jump, when winds between 19 and 30 mph made the mid-50s temperature feel more like 43 degrees. Evan Gifford, a first-year in business administration, said people can be reckless during the jump, but the stories he’s heard from fellow students have made him excited to participate anyway. “I’m concerned if people are shoving and getting rowdy because that could be a problem,� Gifford said. “Even though I’ve never done it, my friends tell me how fun it is. I’m sure once I do it for the first time I’ll love it and will want to do it every year.� Gifford will be joined by thousands of other students. More than 4,000 people have confirmed their participation via several Mirror Lake Jump 2012 events on Facebook. More than 2,500 spectators watched as roughly 300 participants were in the lake at a time during the hours after midnight last year. In 2010, an estimated 30,000 people came out for the event, which led to six arrests and several

People jump in Mirror Lake the Tuesday before the OSU football game against Michigan in 2011. The jump, while an OSU tradition, is not a university sanctioned event. people being treated at Wexner Medical Center for a range of ailments, including hypothermia and sprained ankles. Three students were arrested in 2011 for disorderly conduct, and another for assault on an officer and resisting arrest, according to Lantern archives. The tradition has persisted, despite the university campaign against it. Student Life spokesman Dave Isaacs echoed Adams-Gaston’s sentiment. “I would certainly hope that students would

choose not to jump. It is not a university-sanctioned event and it is a dangerous event that could lead to serious injury,� Isaacs said. “I would strongly urge students to not participate in it. There are many other great ways to show your Buckeye spirit and many other great ways to show the football team and this university that we care.� Issacs said OSU Police will be on hand to monitor the jump and provide assistance as needed to students who choose to ignore the warnings and jump anyway.

Students staying on campus during Thanksgiving break won’t miss out on all the good food. Ohio State is scheduled to host one of the largest university Thanksgiving dinners in the country for about 2,000 students, faculty and staff at the Ohio Union Thursday. The meal will be a traditional Thanksgiving feast of turkey, sweet potatoes, corn, beans and greens said Lawrence Williamson, director of the Hale Black Cultural Center, who started the Thanksgiving dinner tradition at OSU 21 years ago. Thanksgiving dinner will be offered two times on Thursday for people who get tickets ahead of time. Seating begins at noon and 2:15 p.m. Williamson said most who attend are international students, unable to return home for such a short break. He said he thinks the dinner promotes a sense of community and extended family within the university.

Nilav Ranpara, a fourth-year in industrial and systems engineering, said he usually goes to a roommate’s house for Thanksgiving but will attend the dinner for the first time this year. “I got an email from the Office of International Affairs,� Ranpara said. “Thanksgiving is great. I love the food. I am a vegetarian so I don’t eat turkey, but the desserts are fabulous.� There are other dining options for students who stay on campus during long breaks, but with interrupted operations. The campus dining halls are open until Nov. 21 in the afternoon and re-open Nov. 23 for dinner. Over Thanksgiving, to-go meals are offered in a number of places, said Dave Isaacs, a Student Life spokesman. These provide meals for Wednesday dinner through Friday breakfast. The university has studied the demand of dining services when class isn’t in session, and Isaacs said the demand is too low to justify them staying open. The Thanksgiving dinner at the Ohio Union is sponsored by Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Office of International Affairs, University Residences and Dining Services and The Ohio State University Alumni Association.

Issue 134/Thursday The article â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some students reluctant to venture to Hollywood Casinoâ&#x20AC;? published Nov. 15 said the new casino offers â&#x20AC;&#x153;more than 3,000 slot machines, blackjack, poker, crabs and roulette tables.â&#x20AC;? In fact, it offers slot machines, blackjack, poker, craps and roulette tables.

B1G from 1A and field were the casualties of Marylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial troubles. Loh said he hopes no Maryland president will ever have to cut a Terrapins team again, a sentiment echoed by Anderson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me, the most important thing today is that no future Maryland athletic director will ever have to look in young men and young womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes and say that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compete anymore,â&#x20AC;? Anderson said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wear the colors for this school.â&#x20AC;? Anderson confirmed that the school would reinstate the commission to determine which of the seven previously-cut sports can be brought back. The positive effect of Big Ten inclusion on the College Park community came to light quickly, but OSU students said they were skeptical of the Maryland addition. Travis Opritza, a first-year in civil engineering, said he has little faith that the Terps will be able to play with the Big Tenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football elite.

This is ... a watershed moment for Maryland. Dr. Wallace D. Loh University of Maryland President â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on par with a lot of the Big Ten schools, particularly like Michigan State, Ohio State, Michigan and Wisconsin,â&#x20AC;? Opritza said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of tradition with football in the Big Ten and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if Maryland will be able to keep pace with that more than anything else.â&#x20AC;? Nicole Baitt, a third-year in human nutrition, said the continued addition of teams dilutes the Big Ten and sacrifices tradition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Big Ten should only be 10 teams. The conference is about tradition. Penn State, Michigan State, Michigan â&#x20AC;&#x201D; those are all teams we play every single year so when you start diluting it, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more teams to play in the season (and) weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re no longer going to be playing those teams every year and it ruins the tradition of the Big Ten and the competition and rivalries.â&#x20AC;?

expansion down the road by other conference(s) and getting to larger conferences.â&#x20AC;? A neighbor for Penn State Penn State University received consideration in the Big Tenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discussion about adding Maryland. PSU was the Big Tenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first-ever expansion project when it became the 11th member of the conference in 1993. As the new member of an already established conference and the easternmost school on the Big Ten map, PSU teams lacked rivals. Smith said that by adding Maryland to the fold, PSU will finally have a geographic rival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a member in Penn State University that, in some of our views, needed to have, geographically, some colleagues, and I think Maryland offers that,â&#x20AC;? Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They offer a neighbor.â&#x20AC;? Stagnation elimination Standing pat wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an option for the Big Ten, Smith said. The conference needed to continue expanding and Smith used the Big 12 as the case study to prove his point. Smith said that expansion would continue, both for the Big Ten and elsewhere, and stabilization in the current market place would not have been achieved by holding at 12 members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we could have sat still for that goal, reaching stability,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We added Nebraska (in 2011) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that was one team. That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cause (other conferences) to add just one team. They added multiple teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Conference) consortiums are going to look at whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in their own best interest relative to positioning themselves to be the best that they can be, regardless of the Big Ten or regardless of the Big 12, who is sitting at 10 (members). And my thought (the Big 12) probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last a whole lot of years at 10.â&#x20AC;?

The super-conference theory Stated simply, Smith thinks the idea of intercollegiate athletics morphing from a fragmented system of many smaller conferences to a system of significantly fewer larger conferences is possible. A mega- or super-conference featuring upwards of 16 athletic programs could be in play down the line, Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t project other conferencesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; thinking, but as I think through the geography of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going up and trying to set yourself up for legitimate opportunities to win championships, and you look at the revenue opportunities, I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see more

Rape from 1A Once reported, rape cases undergo a thorough investigation by OSU. Reporting the incident to the police isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always an easy task. Nancy Radcliffe, sexual assault services director at the Helpline of Delaware and Morrow Counties said that when a victim does report an assault to the police, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve decided â&#x20AC;&#x153;they want a written record.â&#x20AC;? For residents of Franklin County, the Sexual Assault Response Network of Central Ohio (SARNCO) has a 24-hour free and anonymous rape hotline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an automatic easy decision (to report to the police). A lot of (the) time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s someone they know,â&#x20AC;? Radcliffe said. Last week, University Police Chief Paul Denton said that once a report is filed with the police, the officers do their best to work

with any witnesses and the victim to piece together the case. Radcliffe said that being smart about preventing rape must start before an individual is put in any situation where it could occur, and people should have a plan of how to get out of a situation ahead of time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alcohol may be part of the picture, but not all of the time,â&#x20AC;? Radcliffe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That creepy person at the party is someone we should really pay attention to.â&#x20AC;? But not every perpetrator will â&#x20AC;&#x153;look creepy,â&#x20AC;? she said. If an attack occurs, victims can seek medical help at the Student Wellness Center, a hospital emergency room or with another doctor. Within 96 hours of an attack, victims can be examined and have evidence collected. According to the Sexual Violence Response Guidelines for OSU, victims can be

examined at the Wellness Center and discuss concerns about sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy as well as resources and plans for follow-up care. In order for evidence to be collected victims must visit an emergency room. A police officer will be present, but the victim will not be questioned about the case unless the victim is ready. For costs not covered by insurance, such as bus or cab fare or clean sheets, funding is available through the Sexual Violence Assistance Fund. Stephanie Thomas, a third-year in biochemistry who is also a resident adviser in Barrett Hall, said she thinks if more students knew about the assistance available to them they might feel more comfortable using it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might be embarrassing or uncomfortable to bring it up so they may be more likely to if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talked about more,â&#x20AC;? Thomas said.

Lynch to leave to work on Ohio budget Get the daily email edition!            


Tuesday November 20, 2012

ally marotti and kristen mitchell Editor-in-chief and Campus editor A double homicide, the largest security breach in higher education history and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tattoo-Gateâ&#x20AC;? scandal that rocked Ohio State football â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in his seven years as university spokesman, Jim Lynch has seemingly seen it all. But next week, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll leave the OSU office that receives about 35,000 media calls a year and head downtown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have been asked by the (Gov. John) Kasich Administration to help lead communications on the upcoming state budget, which includes reforms to higher education,â&#x20AC;? Lynch said. Monday, Lynch will assume the role of special assistant to the director for budget communications at the Ohio Office of Budget and Management. Deputy director for OBM communication Dave Pagnard said Lynch will play a role in disseminating information about the two-year Ohio budget, scheduled to be released by Kasich Feb. 4. Pagnard said Lynchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience working with several departments at OSU made him â&#x20AC;&#x153;uniquely qualifiedâ&#x20AC;? for the position.

Pagnard would know better than many â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he worked with Lynch for 13 years at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, and called himself a â&#x20AC;&#x153;big fanâ&#x20AC;? of Lynch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a people person. He can talk to anybody about anything in a way that is relatable,â&#x20AC;? he said. Assistant vice president of University Communications Gayle Saunders has worked with Lynch since she came to OSU two-anda-half months ago, and said his can-do attitude will be missed. Lynchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last official day with the university is Sunday, and Saunders said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure will certainly be felt.â&#x20AC;? University Communications will be posting to fill the vacant position. While Lynch has handled several university mishaps, Lynch said his time at OSU has been gratifying. Being on a college campus is, he said, in a word, â&#x20AC;&#x153;magical.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very rewarding to work with students and help them plan their careers â&#x20AC;Ś and leave this campus a better place than they left it,â&#x20AC;? Lynch said. He has served as an adviser for the student group Ohio Staters and on the Board of Control for the Faculty Club. He said working with faculty â&#x20AC;&#x153;who are helping tackle the greatest challenges facing our worldâ&#x20AC;? has

Lynch said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but at this moment, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited to take on a new challenge to help the state of Ohio.â&#x20AC;?

Popular culture, ‘Hammer drawers’ bring Biebs to AMA fame Allow me to preface this commentary by stating that I absolutely love music. I do. What I don’t love is popular culture. It makes no sense to me. And popular culture is the misty tull American Music Awards. Nominees are chosen by careful tabulation of record sales, airplay, video views, social media and streaming stuff. The public then votes on finalists, and the winners get a shiny new trophy for their mantle. Of the 20 categories only 13 were televised, and Rihanna and Nicki Minaj shined the brightest with four nominations each, followed by Drake, Maroon 5 and Justin Bieber with three each. A new category, Favorite Electronic Dance Music Artist, debuted this year with David Guetta taking the win. Bieber cleaned house, winning each of his nominations, and Minaj took home two trophies for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist and Favorite Rap/ Hip-Hop Album. Rihanna only won once, for Favorite Soul/R&B Album. Maroon 5 also won once, for Favorite Pop/Rock Band, Duo or Group. Drake was snubbed by voters, walking away without an award. Perhaps the biggest snub came from the ceremony itself, though. Of the seven categories not televised, five were won by women. Katy Perry,

Jokes involving racial stereotyping are a dime a dozen among comedians, but not many try to use comedy to change the thought process on those stereotypes. Vince Morris, an East Side Columbus native, is scheduled to perform Friday through Sunday at the Columbus Funny Bone and said he plans to use his comedic material to change how some people think. Getting his start at an open mic night, Morris said he owes some of his success to pure luck and “basically being a beast” at his job. “When I first started doing standup, I got lucky because people really seemed to like me and I started getting bookings really fast,” Morris said. “I did a lot of traveling and started moving up the ranks and soon enough started becoming the headliner for the shows instead of the opening act.” Morris, like many comedians, likes to take experiences from his real life and turn them into material for his shows. “I get most of my material from my personal experiences of what I am going through right now,” he said. Recently, much of Morris’ material has been focused on being a dad to his 4-year-old daughter and the new experiences that have come with parenting. Morris also said he considers himself a different type of comedian because he strives to have his material hit on bigger social issues such as racial stereotypes, the economy and ignorance. “My comedy is to make people think,“ he

said. “There is always a message with what I say. Sometimes the things I make jokes about are the things that need to be discussed the most, but some (I’m) too nervous to let it out in the open.” Some students enjoy the push on such topics. Sabarinath Sankaranarayanan, a second-year in architecture, has heard Morris’ material before and finds the sensitive subjects amusing. “He’s funny, he talks about racism which is sensitive, but he’s like the black Russell Peters. He makes fun of races and sometimes he isn’t the most electrifying, but I could spend an hour watching him,” Sankaranarayanan said. Brenden Bishop, a graduate student in quantitative psychology, said he thinks Morris still needs to catch up to other acts in the business. “I think that he is all right,” Bishop said. “It may be that I was just watching clips and not a whole show, but it seemed like his flow just wasn’t as good as the other well-established comedians I’ve seen like Jim Gaffigan, Chris Rock or Eddie Murphy. He did make me laugh though, and he is definitely funny.” Morris said he wants his comedy to relate at least in a small way to every audience member. “Whether it’s being a dad, or agreeing with the racial jokes I make on stage, or even something said on the spot, that’s the point of being a comedian, is to connect with people,” he said. Tickets for the show, available on Funny Bone’s website and at the door, cost $15 for Friday and Saturday and $10 for Sunday. Morris is slated to perform at 8 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. Friday, 7 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. Saturday and 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Funny Bone is located at 145 Easton Town Center and the show is 21 and up.

Rihanna, Shakira, Adele and Beyonce all took home an award that didn’t make the live show, along with the categories of Favorite Contemporary Inspirational Artist and Favorite Pop/Rock Band, Duo or Group. This year’s most popular artist, winning Artist of the Year, was Justin Bieber. And while the award further confirmed his monstrous following, the Biebs proved he’s a follower as well — in fashion at least. He sang and danced, incessantly grabbing the sag of his parachute pants — or as I call them “Hammer drawers.” That’s right, MC Hammer pants. They’re back. It wasn’t a good idea in the late ’80s and it isn’t a good idea now. And the Hammer drawers were all over this year’s awards. The Biebs wore at least a couple pairs, Usher sported some during his opening medley and during the final performance, Korean Internet sensation PSY performed a mash-up with, you guessed it, MC Hammer. They sported the crotch droop drawers, but PSY won the saggy crotch saga. That’s right, Hammer got out-hammered in the saggy pants department, clearly making PSY this year’s “Oh no, what are they wearing” winner. Hammer takes runner-up, with the Biebs and Usher getting honorable mentions, although one could argue Bieber ranked second for his “hands-on” approach to the droop. Sure, the awards show also had elaborate live and lip-synced performances as well as several wig changes by Minaj, but none of that really matters. It’s all about fashion at the popular culture awards. And Hammer drawers stole the show at the 2012 AMAs.

Columbus to welcome company of ‘A Christmas Carol’ onstage misty tull Lantern reporter

“rise of the Guardians: the Video Game” “sonic & all-stars racing transformed” “Borderlands 2”




A Columbus stage is set to frost over this weekend with the performance of a Christmas classic. Charles Dickens’ holiday classic “A Christmas Carol” is slated to hit the Palace Theatre stage Friday through Sunday as part of the Nebraska Theatre Caravan’s annual tour. The Nebraska Theatre Caravan is the Omaha Community Playhouse’s touring leg that has been touring with “A Christmas Carol” since 1979. Formed in 1924, the Playhouse has been staging plays for 88 years. Charles Dickens’ 1843 classic is the story of Ebenezer Scrooge’s transformation from an angry miser to a holiday believer due to visits from the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. The caravan consists of 24 actors, three musicians, one music director and several technicians. Russell Matthews, a 25-yearold actor in his fourth tour with the company, plays both Scrooge’s nephew, Fred, and Christmas Future. Matthews said he appreciates the strong contrast his character has to Scrooge. “Fred is the kind of man that, even though his uncle treats him as badly as he could treat anyone, he still cares about him and wants only the best for his uncle. I like that a lot about him,” Matthews said.

‘A Christmas Carol’ is scheduled to be performed Nov. 23 - 25 at Palace Theatre. Nebraska Theatre Caravan’s version of the classic is an adaptation written by Charles Jones, a former director of Omaha Community Playhouse, in 1976. Jones also formed the Nebraska Theatre Caravan in 1975. “The Nebraska Theatre Caravan was only supposed to be a one-year engagement, but it did so well that it expanded and had two and, at one time, three tours a year,” said Lora Kaup, director of sales and events at the Omaha Community Playhouse. “Charles Jones took this small

community playhouse and transformed it into the largest community playhouse in the country.” Kaup said the caravan has only one tour this year and will have two tours next year, a cutback that happened because of the slow economy and fewer yearly subscribers, or annual ticket holders. “At one time we had 12,000 to 15,000 subscribers but presently the playhouse has 5,000 subscribers, which is still a large number for a community playhouse,” Kaup said. The Caravan, over the last 37

years, has performed in 49 states and four Canadian provinces, and the Columbus Association of the Performing Arts has brought “A Christmas Carol” to the Columbus community for more than 30 years. Brian Boyd, a regular theatergoer and Columbus resident, said he prefers shows at the Palace Theatre over other local venues. “The theater can be full but it is still comfortable and intimate,” Boyd said. “The acoustics are great, the sound is fantastic and it is absolutely beautiful.” Matthews said the Nebraska Theatre Caravan’s adaptation of “A Christmas Carol” is worth the trip to the theater. “Our production really brings a sense of warmth to it. We’ve got a spectacular cast this year, there are some great performances going on with these roles, and we all care about each other a lot and that comes across to an audience,” Matthews said. “That’s what this play is all about.” The Palace Theatre is located at 34 W. Broad St. in downtown Columbus. “A Christmas Carol” is scheduled to be performed at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets range from $22 to $32 and are available through Ticketmaster.

200Columbus Bands to celebrate bicentennial HaiLey KiM Lantern reporter Local musicians have banded together to throw a celebration for Columbusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 200th birthday. Four winners of a contest called Celebrate Columbus in Song are scheduled to perform 7 p.m. Tuesday at The Basement as part of the event 200Columbus Bands. The contest, which announced its winners in December, was organized by the Greater Columbus Arts Council to celebrate Columbusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bicentennial. Submissions to the contest were to be original songs inspired by Columbus, and more than 120 songs were submitted. Thirteen songwriters were selected in March, each winning $500 and professional recording and production time at either WCBE-FM or Jazz Academy studios, both located in Columbus, for a CD compilation of the winning songs. One of the 13 winning songs was rock band HellNKellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;My City.â&#x20AC;? Dan Keller, vocalist and guitarist of HellNKeller and organizer for Celebrate Columbus in Song, said the winning bands had a wonderful time meeting each other and performing together for other bicentennial-celebration concerts throughout the summer, but he wanted more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We literally have been working all summer to put at least one more concert with the band together for public,â&#x20AC;? Keller said. Only four of the 13 winners are slated to

perform at the 200Columbus Bands concert, which includes a team-up of Donna Mogavero, The Castros, HellNKeller, and Miller-Kelton. Keller said, due to being the organizer of Celebrate Columbus in Song, he picked the acts for the concert based on the their sound. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to keep the sounds compatible,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know a hip-hop band also won the contest but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m against hip-hop but we are not a hip-hop band and I thought hip-hop songs (would) not get along with our sound, (which is) classic rock.â&#x20AC;? Keller added he wants to give the audience a variety of options though. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donna Mogavero is solo, The Castros is duo and HellNKeller and Miller-Kelton are full bands,â&#x20AC;? Keller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donna will perform folksy, rocky songs and we just liked The Castrosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sound. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soft rock and low-key songs. Also, HellNKeller and Miller-Kelton have joyous rock feels.â&#x20AC;? Keller said it took the help of others to put the show together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a case study of networking,â&#x20AC;? Keller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was utilizing the people Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known all my life. The whole thing came together by networking and the grace of God.â&#x20AC;? Keller said the audience should expect to hear â&#x20AC;&#x153;sounds of their cityâ&#x20AC;? at the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of (the acts) are from Columbus and singing about their city,â&#x20AC;? Keller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our opportunity to express our art and your opportunity to hear Columbusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; most distinguished artists.â&#x20AC;? Visit for the rest of this story.

For one Ohio State alumnus and Columbus native, conquering his childhood fear of the movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jawsâ&#x20AC;? was his ticket into a career of filmmaking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jawsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was the film for me,â&#x20AC;? said filmmaker Jay Woelfel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(It) helped spur an interest in things that scared me â&#x20AC;&#x201D; horror fiction and movies.â&#x20AC;? And while his fear of sharks is still intact, that movie no longer plagues his imagination. The U.S. premiere of Woelfelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new feature film â&#x20AC;&#x153;Season of Darknessâ&#x20AC;? is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Drexel Theatre, located at 2254 E. Main St. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Season of Darknessâ&#x20AC;? is a supernatural horror film about the realities of insanity and coming to terms with the disease, Woelfel said. The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cast is comprised of local and outside talent, including Richard Hatch of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Battlestar Galacticaâ&#x20AC;? and Columbus-based actor Nick Baldasare. Baldasare plays the lead role of Dwight Stroud, who escapes from a mental institution. He said the film follows his character as he comes to terms with his insanity and the many horrors to which this realization leads. Woelfel and Baldasare have teamed up before to produce films, among those being 1989â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beyond Dreamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Door,â&#x20AC;? which was Woelfelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s directing debut and Baldasareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first starring role. Baldasare said their history makes them a good team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel very comfortable working with Jay,â&#x20AC;? Baldasare said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know what he wants from me.â&#x20AC;? The film was shot in and around Columbus, with some locations including the rock quarries of the Scioto River, the Olentangy Indian Caverns in Delaware, Ohio, and the Columbus Museum of Art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole Columbus atmosphere in general helped the film have its own identity,â&#x20AC;? Woelfel said. After graduating from OSU, Woelfel moved to Los Angeles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you want to do films thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still the only place to go,â&#x20AC;? Woelfel said. He also said his time in Los Angeles was a catalyst into launching his career, as it helped him gain notoriety through different works. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did almost two years worth of work at the American Film Institute working as an editor,â&#x20AC;? Woelfel said. He edited a short called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bronx Cheers,â&#x20AC;? which received an Oscar nomination for the Best Short Film category in 1991. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked as a writer-director

VS The State of The Game PAT BRENNAN Sports editor For the 95th consecutive year, The Game endures — as strong as it ever has. The Ohio State and Michigan football teams are prepping for their 109th meeting on Saturday at Ohio Stadium and the series, known to many simply as “The Game,” is far from stale. It’s a matter that’s as salient for first-year OSU coach Urban Meyer and players up and down his roster as it likely was for the renowned Buckeyes coaches and players of yesteryear. Recognized by the United States Congress as the greatest rivalry in sports, the OSU-UM rivalry dates back to 1897, and an air of hatred for “that team up north” still pervades the OSU football facilities. Letter “M’s” visible on campus signage were covered with red tape and the name of the state that borders Ohio to the north might as well have been a four-letter word for OSU players during Monday press conferences at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Media availability began with Meyer, who, with a glint in his eyes, recounted his memories of The Game by rattling off names like Bo Schembechler, Woody Hayes, Pete Johnson and Archie Griffin.

Meyer recalled the OSU’s 1987 win at Michigan Stadium. It was the final game for Meyer’s mentor, former OSU coach Earle Bruce, who was informed of his firing prior to the contest. “I can tell you (about) walking into coach Bruce’s office right here,” said Meyer, who was an assistant on Bruce’s staff at the time of the incident. “I saw a bunch of coaches with their arms on the table, with their face in their arms, and tears and the whole deal. I was like the last guy to walk in, and he said that coach Bruce will no longer be the coach after this game … Just an incredible moment in Ohio State history.” OSU went to Ann Arbor, Mich., the following Saturday where Bruce’s Buckeyes defeated UM, 23-20. Bruce was carried off the field on the shoulders of his players. To understand how deep The Game still permeates the sporting culture at OSU in modern times, look no further than athletic director Gene Smith’s Monday press conference at the Fawcett Center. Smith was made available to discuss the University of Maryland’s move to the Big Ten Conference, and Smith found himself fielding questions about OSU’s current bowl ban and whether he could or should have administered a self-imposed ban during the 2011 season. His focus? Beating Michigan. Smith said he wasn’t worried about hypotheticals. In the midst of the historic addition of Maryland to the Big Ten, Smith said his aim was to help the Buckeyes beat the Wolverines.

“I’m worried about making sure that we position our football staff, our student-athletes — everything we can to have the opportunity to beat that team up north,” Smith said. “That’s my mission right now.” The teams have taken turns dominating the rivalry for years at a time. From 2004-2009, OSU won six consecutive times. The Buckeyes also won in 2010, but the game was later vacated due to NCAA violations for which OSU is also currently serving an NCAA-imposed postseason ban. Those penalties came as a result of the “Tattoo-Gate” scandal in which players received extra impermissible benefits in exchange for OSU football memorabilia. OSU’s dominance in the mid-2000s caused some to forget about the rivalry, said Buckeyes senior wide receiver Taylor Rice. “To be honest, people felt like the rivalry was dying down because it had been so many years since they beat us,” Rice said. Both teams come into this year’s game ranked nationally, making the game relevant to both sides and the rest of the country. OSU enters this year’s grand finale with an unblemished, 11-0 record, which is complimented by the Associated Press’ No. 4 ranking. The Buckeyes are also playing for the sixth undefeated season in program history and the first since 2002. UM didn’t quite fulfill expectations this season — it

Meyer: ‘We’re forever indebted’ to OSU football’s 2012 senior class It was easier than he thought it would

ANDREW HOLLERAN Photo editor Urban Meyer admittedly gets emotional when talking about this season’s seniors. Tears, hugs and smiles all are commonplace between coaches and their outgoing players in collegiate athletics. But for the 48-year-old OSU coach, this year’s group of Buckeye seniors is far more than a typical graduating class. They helped save the Buckeye football program, Meyer says. “We’re forever indebted to them because they didn’t have to do what they did,” Meyer said Monday in a press conference previewing Saturday’s game against Michigan. What the first-year Buckeye coach is talking about is this: OSU’s 2012 senior class didn’t have to be here, playing for a team ineligible for the postseason even though they’re 11-0 and ranked No. 4 by the Associated Press. When OSU was hit with a bowl and conference championship ban in December 2011 because of the “Tattoo-Gate” scandal that rocked Buckeye Nation to its core a year before, this class of seniors was given a way out. They could have transferred to another school — a bowl-eligible one at that — and played immediately. That fact concerned Meyer greatly. “I still remember the day we walked in, and (OSU athletic director Gene Smith) said, ‘You’re not going to a bowl game,’” Meyer said. “I thought, ‘We’re not what?’ And then my mind started thinking about this year’s team.” Above everything else, Meyer began to strategize how he would compel the seniors-to-be to stay at OSU. He said he called a team meeting 15 minutes after the Buckeyes learned they were banned from the 2012 postseason. After the meeting, Meyer kept the seniorsto-be in the room to try to convince them to stay at OSU.


be. “I had no idea who they were, and they didn’t know me, so it was a leap of faith (for them to stay),” Meyer said. “I think it was also their love for their school.” Almost a year after that meeting, Meyer realizes he was right. “Now that I know them, I know exactly why they stayed,” Meyer said. “Their love for Ohio State.” Most of this season’s OSU seniors didn’t consider leaving Columbus for a second. Defensive end John Simon could have left for the NFL and been an early-round draft pick. A handful of other then-juniors had favorable other destinations, too. They remained Buckeyes. “I don’t think it crossed anyone’s mind to leave,” said senior defensive back Zach Domicone. That doesn’t mean they weren’t upset when they realized their final season as college athletes would be bowl-less, however. Most of the OSU seniors were together when they heard the ill-fated news. “Looking back, we were in the hospital visiting patients and stuff and that’s when it broke. So, it was on the TV’s and on ESPN and people were like, ‘How do you guys feel that you can’t play in a bowl game?’ and we were like, ‘What are you talking about?’” Domicone said. When they returned to the Woody Hayes Athletic Center to hear the news again as a team, there was anger, confusion and disbelief spreading throughout the meeting room. “It was kind of one of those things where you sit down and just let it sink in for a little while,” said senior linebacker Zach Boren. The team was, after all, repeatedly told by OSU athletic personnel that a postseason ban was not going to be inflicted. “We were kind of told that we weren’t going to get a bowl ban, that everything was going to be OK,” Boren said. “We had heard from people who had done

investigations and stuff that we were going to be all right and that what we already imposed was going to be more than enough.” It wasn’t, and OSU now sits as one of two remaining unbeaten teams in the country — Notre Dame being the other — with one game to play in the regular season. Unlike the Fighting Irish, though, the Buckeyes’ season will end after its game Saturday, and with it, the careers of 22 OSU seniors. That last game on Saturday should be special, however. OSU faces its archrival, No. 20-ranked Michigan, or, as those associated with the Buckeye football program call them, ‘that school up north.’ With a win against the Wolverines, OSU would attain its first undefeated season since 2002 — the most recent Buckeyes’ National Championship squad, which will be honored at half time of the game Saturday. A shot at an AP national championship would remain possible, too. Not a bad way for OSU’s seniors to go out, especially after the 6-7 season the Buckeyes had last year. “We wanted to leave our mark and leave a legacy and last year didn’t really go how we planned and I don’t think anyone wanted to go out like that,” Domicone said. Along with possibly leaving OSU following a 12-0 season, the 2012 seniors have the Buckeye football program headed in the right direction, and that is something they are proud of. “We were just talking about that, a couple of (the seniors). We were just saying how different it’s been. Just the way this program has grown in the last year and stuff. We’re in a lot better position this year and we like where we’re at,” Boren said. Meyer, and likely the rest of Buckeye Nation, are forever grateful. OSU is scheduled to play Michigan (8-3) at noon Saturday in Ohio Stadium.

sports The Game on 6A

began its 2012 campaign with a 41-14 loss to then-No. 1-ranked Alabama in its opening game, followed by later losses to Notre Dame, America’s current No. 1-ranked team, and Nebraska. The Wolverines have managed to claw their way to an 8-3 overall record and the No. 20 ranking in the AP poll — they still have a meaningful bowl game to play for. The Buckeyes are coming off a loss in Ann Arbor last year, too. While frustrating for OSU, the defeat, Rice said, was for the good of the rivalry. “Honestly, I think that reality check helped us,” Rice said. “It let people know that this is a rivalry and there’s nothing like it. This game alone will make or break your season.”

Several OSU players, and scores of Buckeyes before them, have echoed that sentiment — The Game is all that counts. In 2012, OSU players likened the OSU-UM game to “their Super Bowl” and “their national championship.” The superlatives change, but the message is consistent — The Game is still The Game, and it’s as strong as it’s ever been. “This is what it all comes down to — playing Michigan,” Rice said. “Winning or losing. This is what determines the outcome of our season … It’s been a great season but this is what really counts. This is what our season comes down to. This is our Super Bowl.” This year’s installment of The Game will is scheduled for a noon start at Ohio Stadium.

OSU, UM rivalry extends to recruiting ryan glinn For The Lantern

The No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes will battle the Michigan Wolverines on the field Saturday, but the never-ending recruiting war will be taking place on the sidelines and in the stands. More than 40 of the nation’s top recruits from the 2013 and 2014 classes are expected to be in Ohio Stadium for The Game. “In 10 years of doing this, this is one of the biggest recruiting weekends I’ve come across,” said Josh Helmholdt,’s Midwest recruiting analyst. “It just seems this could be an epically big recruiting weekend.” After his hire in late November 2011, OSU coach Urban Meyer might have demonstrated his recruiting prowess by concluding the 2012 class with five-star recruits Noah Spence and Adolphus Washington, now freshmen defensive linemen for the Buckeyes. ranked the class fourth in the nation, three spots ahead of coach Brady Hoke and the Wolverines. This year, Meyer hopes for another strong finish. The Buckeyes’ 2013 class is currently ranked seventh by Rivals. The reason? Helmholdt said it’s Meyer, “He’s aggressive. He has a hardworking coaching staff behind him and he’s dynamic,” Helmholdt said. “Kids want to buy into something they believe in, and they believe in Urban Meyer.” Cornerbacks Cam Burrows and Eli Woodard are two recruits that believed in Meyer enough to commit to the Buckeyes. Burrows and Woodard are the 27th- and 29th-ranked players in the nation, respectively, per Rivals. The four-star defensive backs will be on hand for the Michigan game. They will have the opportunity to pitch OSU to the plethora of young talent visiting this weekend.

OSU coach Urban Meyer speaks with Buckeyes freshman running back Bri’onte Dunn during a Nov. 3 game against Illinois at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 52-22. The projected visitors for Saturday include one of Meyer’s primary 2013 targets, four-star wide receiver James Quick. Quick is the type of explosive athlete Meyer has seemed to attract over the course of his coaching career. Rivals estimates that Quick clocks a 4.41 in the 40-yard dash and a 10.7 in the 100-meter. The Louisville, Ky. native and Louisville Trinity star is being recruited to play slot receiver and could possibly be used in a Percy Harvintype role for the Buckeyes. Harvin, who now plays wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings, was arguably one of the nation’s best wide receivers during Meyer’s tenure at Florida and helped the former Gators coach win two national championships while there. Quick’s recruitment is down to Louisville and Ohio State, according to Rivals.

Meyer’s recruiting philosophy might be one that leaves no stone unturned, even when it comes to players that have committed to other schools. Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema and Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio seemed to learn that the hard way. Meyer successfully flipped freshman offensive lineman Kyle Dodson and defensive lineman Se’Von Pittman from those respective schools last year. This year’s approach might not be any different. With senior linebackers Storm Klein, Etienne Sabino, and Zach Boren departing after the season, depth at the linebacker position could be a primary concern for OSU’s coaching staff.

DAN HOPE Senior Lantern reporter Ohio State football coaches and players have plenty of respect Michigan senior quarterback Denard Robinson’s ability, but they better not forget about the Wolverines’ other dual-threat signal-caller. Preparing to play Robinson, who ranks third all-time among Football Bowl Subdivision quarterbacks in rushing yards, is a challenge in itself for OSU football this week. In anticipation of this Saturday’s clash with their rivals, however, the Buckeyes have to prepare for UM junior quarterback Devin Gardner too. In UM’s 40-34 victory last year in Ann Arbor, Mich., Robinson passed for 167 yards and three touchdowns, and rushed for 170 yards and two touchdowns. Over the past three games, however, Gardner has started at quarterback for the Wolverines. Robinson missed two games with a nerve injury in his throwing arm, and upon his return against Iowa last week, he played at running back after regular starter redshirt junior Fitzgerald Toussaint was knocked out of the game with a season-ending leg injury. In Robinson’s place over the past three games, Gardner has completed 65.7 percent of his passes for 834 yards and seven touchdowns. In eight starts at quarterback this season, Robinson has completed 53.6 percent of his throws for 1,319 yards and nine touchdowns. The Buckeyes have to prepare to play both. UM’s depth chart, released Monday, lists Robinson as the starting quarterback, but coach Brady Hoke said during his press conference Monday it is “up in the air” which player will start Saturday. Regardless of which quarterback starts, it is likely the other will still have a spot somewhere else in the Wolverines’ starting lineup. Gardner has five starts at wide receiver this season, and through the season’s first eight games, he had 16 receptions for 266 yards and four touchdowns. As a tailback against Iowa, Robinson carried the ball 13 times for 98 yards. Hoke said Monday that being able to play both players at multiple positions helps their football team. “When we moved Devin, and he wanted to move to wide receiver, we were helping our football team, because you’re putting your best 11 (offensive players) on the field,” Hoke said. “I think Denard fits in that either as a quarterback or as a slot receiver or wherever it may be.” OSU senior linebacker Zach Boren said the potential for either player to line up at a different

Michigan senior quarterback Denard Robinson (16) looks to pass the ball in a game against Massachusetts on Sept. 15 at Michigan Stadium. Michigan won, 63-13. spot on offense makes it a big challenge to prepare for the Wolverines offense. “You just don’t know what to plan for,” Boren said. “You don’t know if you’re going to show up on Saturday and Denard’s going to be the starting quarterback and Devin’s going to be out at wide receiver, or Devin’s going to be at quarterback and Denard’s going to be at tailback. You don’t know and that’s the hard thing about scheming for them.” Redshirt senior outside linebacker Etienne Sabino said Robinson’s dynamic rushing ability makes him dangerous regardless of what position he lines up at. “Denard can run just as well as a running back, so when he’s in the game, you have to count him as a running quarterback or running back that can throw or whatever you want to call it,” Sabino said. “He’s a great player.” Boren said that UM’s offensive scheme is likely to be different depending on which player lines up at quarterback. “With Devin in there, they run more of a pro-style offense. With Denard in there, it’s more of a spread,” Boren said. “They played both of them in the backfield last week, and they have a lot of options by doing that … they’re going to be a tough offense to stop.”

Stopping UM’s offense, however, won’t be the only challenge in Sunday’s game. The Wolverines’ defense ranks 12th in the nation with only 303.5 total yards allowed per game, and 17th with just 18.1 points allowed per game. First-year OSU coach Urban Meyer said the Buckeyes’ offense was “bad” last week, and that they have to “open this offense up and trust that good things are going to happen” against UM. Special teams could also play an important role in Saturday’s game: the Buckeyes have scored four special teams touchdowns this season but have also had four special teams touchdowns scored against them. Redshirt senior Zach Domicone said he expects special teams to make a “huge difference” on Saturday. “When two teams are evenly matched or it’s a close game, every play is so critical,” Domicone said. “Special teams is … essential to controlling the field position, and setting up your offense and your defense in good situations to make plays to win the game.” OSU’s annual rivalry game with the Wolverines is scheduled for a noon kickoff at Ohio Stadium Saturday.
