thelantern OSU accused of concealing rape details

sports

liz young Lantern reporter young.1693@osu.edu Some Ohio State officials have been accused of violating federal disclosure acts in regards to several reported rapes in Park-Stradley Hall, however the university is standing its ground. A Nov. 27 “FERPA Fact” blog post accused OSU authorities’ of incorrectly using FERPA, HIPAA, and the Clery Act in handling the sex crimes cases. “HIPAA never applies to anything law enforcement or student life ever does, ever, at all,” the blog post said. The post went on to say that OSU doesn’t “intend to comply with open records law.” FERPA stands for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, which “prohibits a school from disclosing personally identifiable information from

After evaluating all the facts and circumstances of the recently reported cases, we do not believe that these incidents pose a continuing threat to students or the university community as a whole. Paul Denton Ohio State Police Chief students’ education records without the consent of a parent or eligible student, unless an exception to FERPA’s general consent rule applies,” according to the U.S. Department of Education. HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. Its job is to protect “the privacy of individually identifiable health

information,” according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website. The Clery Act was designed to make college campus crime information readily available. It was created in the name of Jeanne Clery, a student at Lehigh University who was raped and murdered in 1986 after crime warnings were not sent out after a series of thefts on campus. It is speculated that she would have been more cautious if she had known about the thefts, which in turn would have prevented her unrelated death. Attorney advocate for the Student Press Law Center Adam Goldstein accused OSU of violating the timely crime warnings portion of the Clery Act in his blog post. “Each institution (U.S. college or university) … shall make timely reports to the campus community

For Ohio State women’s volleyball home games, the Ohio State Marching Band travels down one of four ramps in St. John Arena that lead from the main concourse down to the event level. It’s 20 paces, give or take, down the cement-gray walkway onto the arena’s hardwood playing surface, and it’s one of the program’s cherished traditions — the indoor version of the famed Ohio Stadium ramp entrance. “When the band comes down the ramp into St. John and the music fills the arena, that’s a real special and unique part of our home-court advantage,” said OSU women’s volleyball coach Geoff Carlston. “That’s something that’s been really special for our players.” The team’s indoor ramp tradition is one of many pieces of nostalgia contained under St. John Arena’s corrugated metal roof, but the days of such traditions will be numbered as the 56-year-old arena will be replaced in the foreseeable future.

OSU is enacting an Off-Campus Development Task Force to improve safety and cleanliness, among other things, in the off-campus area.

The program created by the Undergraduate Student Government to address issues like housing conditions and rent issues, is “not exactly anything new” for some landlords. However, for USG President Taylor Stepp, the Off-Campus Development Task Force will focus on issues in the off-campus area “that need to be addressed.” “Plain and simple, we have landlords that are taking advantage of students and operate in despicable practices,” Stepp said. “We are looking for ways to get in there and make sure they are being honest people with our students and running an honest business.” The group of undergraduate students led by former USG President Nick Messenger will conduct interviews with students, parents and landlords over the next month to address safety and affordability issues off campus. Messenger said in a Nov. 28 interview with The Lantern that he will issue a comprehensive report of their findings by Feb. 1.

campus Student loses leg, stays positive in ‘very painful’ recovery sarah niekamp Lantern reporter niekamp.37@osu.edu Things haven’t always been easy for Ohio State student James Daniel Hughes, but they’re getting better. Hughes lost a leg after being hit by a dump truck on OSU’s campus three months ago, but has kept a positive attitude during the slow and painful recovery. Hughes was hit on Sept. 5 while riding his bike near a construction site on Woodruff Avenue, and was taken immediately to Wexner Medical Center. Steve Crandall, the Hughes’ family lawyer, said Hughes has been discharged from the Medical Center and is being treated at Dodd Hall Inpatient Rehabilitation. Even though he is recovering, Hughes is still in a lot of pain, Crandall said. “Daniel is trying to regain some function in his left leg, but there is none yet,” Crandall said. “We don’t know whether it’s permanent, but it’s very painful.” Hughes has had many surgeries since the accident. “I can’t even count the number of surgeries,” Crandall said. “Initial surgeries, surgeries to control infection, the surgery to reattach his spinal chord.” Three months after the accident occurred, the investigation is still ongoing as information has yet to be released to the family. “It’s beyond any reasonable time frame and it

makes me think it’s beyond a legal time frame,” Crandall said. OSU Police Chief Paul Denton said they are still in the process of completing the investigation. “When it is completed, we will share it with the Hughes family and Mr. Crandall,” Denton said in an email. “We continue to be concerned with the well-being of Daniel and his family.” Even though the investigation is not going as quickly as Crandall would like, he said the family is very grateful for the Wexner Medical Center and their staff. “On behalf of the family, they are extremely thankful of Ohio State and the care providers,” Crandall said. “They have been amazing.” Since being released to Dodd Hall Inpatient Rehabilitation, Hughes has continued to improve. Mark Kalina, a 23-year-old OSU student in civil engineering was hit by a train Oct. 13, was his roommate at Dodd when Hughes was first transferred. As a result of his accident, Kalina lost his left leg and his right leg below the knee. Kalina said Hughes’ personality was amazing when he was there and in the six days the two were roommates, Kalina said Hughes showed big improvements. “When he first came he couldn’t put weight on his left leg, but when I left he was putting weight on the one leg,” Kalina said. “He just has a lot of hard work and time ahead of him.” Both Crandall and Kalina agreed that Hughes might be able to return to school sometime in the future. “There is some hope he can go back to school,” Crandall said. “It’s far off into the future. Right now would be very difficult.”

George from 1A Saunders said George began his role with the university in November. “He has been onboarding, meeting with members of the advancement team and others with whom he will work and getting acclimated to the role,” Saunders said in an email. Saunders said George will make $220,000 annually and will report to Jeff Kaplan, OSU’s senior vice president for development and executive officer to university President E. Gordon Gee. George, who’s a member of the College Football Hall of Fame, said working with OSU is a “privilege.” “I am grateful to have the opportunity to apply what I‘ve learned from my academic and football journey while at the university, along with the work I’ve been doing in the world of business, to support the transformative initiatives happening at my alma mater,” George said in a released statement. In 2001, George graduated from OSU with a degree in

Police officers survey the scene after a Sept. 5 bicycle accident where OSU student James Daniel Hughes was hit by a dump truck near Woodruff Avenue. Hughes was involved in one of several accidents in the campus area since the beginning of the school year. The day after Hughes’ accident, OSU student Yifan Gu was struck by a bicyclist near Chumley’s on High Street, and was transported to the Medical Center with injuries. On Aug. 19 first-year student Rachel Stump was stuck by a drunk driver near the South Campus Gateway. Stump, who was in a coma

landscape architecture before earning his MBA at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management in 2009. George is currently working as an analyst for FOX Sports and was still working for the company as recently as Saturday’s Big Ten Championship Game between Wisconsin and Nebraska. Dan Bell, FOX Sports’ vice president of communications, said the company “just learned this week” of George’s new role at OSU. “We will talk to him in the very near future to determine his future at FOX Sports,” Bell said. Bell confirmed that George will work the outlet’s Cotton Bowl broadcast on Jan. 4. Saunders said OSU supports George’s “media and other endeavors.” “(He) has multiple interests outside of the university,” Saunders said. “The university expects him to manage his responsibilities here at the university just as we expect of all employees who balance work with other interests.”

as a result of the accident, is recovering in her hometown of Troy, Ohio. Other bicycle accidents with less severe injuries were also reported on campus around the same time. Crandall said Hughes has come a long way since the accident, and Kalina said he thinks he has a bright future ahead. “He’s a tough kid,” Kalina said. “It’s inspiring to see him. He is definitely going to get better.”

Averie Bischak, a fourth-year in political science, said it’s an economically tactful move by the university. “Bringing a guy like him in should do well to raise money,” she said. “I mean, recognition bias, right? People will spend for a name they recognize.” Others, like Seth Schmackers, a third-year in logistics, was indifferent toward George’s return to OSU — especially if it doesn’t have to do with the sport that made him so famous. “I guess it’s cool, but it’s not like he’s involved in football again,” he said. “I don’t really care that much, personally.” Some embraced George’s move back to campus. “It’s great Eddie’s coming back, regardless of what he does,” said Andrew Bialek, a fourth-year in mechanical engineering. “Scarlet and Grey bleeds deep. It’s nice to see a notable Buckeye make a return.” Kristen Mitchell and Ryan Guenther contributed to this article.

on crimes considered to be a threat to other students and employees … Such reports shall be provided to students and employees in a manner that is timely and that will aid in the prevention of similar occurrences,” according to the act. “Of the things that we’ve put on (the blog), that was certainly one of the more disturbing ones,” Goldstein said. ���What makes it worse is this is trying to cover up rape, and that’s just different than trying to cover up ethics violations that athletes might participate in.” Goldstein was referring to ESPN suing OSU in July 2011 for “wrongfully (citing FERPA) as a reason for withholding various documents” during the “Tattoo-Gate” scandal where OSU football players were found guilty of selling memorabilia to get discounted tattoos, among other things. University Police Deputy Chief Richard Morman and Denton each told The Lantern in different interviews that campus police was not sending out timely crime warnings because the sex crimes did not present a continued threat to the campus community. “In these cases when you have a known offender and a known suspect and we are confident that action is or has been taken through the Student Conduct process, plus in respect to the privacy and sensitivity of this type of offense to the reporting party, the survivor (victim), we weigh all of those circumstances into the decision of whether to or not to issue a public safety notice,” Denton said. Goldstein said under these circumstances, a report should have been issued. “The question for the timely warning act isn’t, ‘Will telling students about the rapes stop them from being raped by this guy?’ it’s, ‘Will telling them about the rapes convince them to take extra steps that will stop them from being raped by someone else?’ And the answer to that is clearly yes,” Goldstein said. David Cuillier, an assistant professor of journalism at the University of Arizona and a Society of Professional Journalists expert on public records, agreed that the Clery Act is being violated. “Well they should be alerting everyone in the dorm … They’re really required by law to do so. So and if they fail to let everyone know what’s going on, they can be fined,” Cuillier said. Cuillier also commented on the use of FERPA by

Arena from 1A halls bedecked with black and white images of athletes from across OSU’s many sports. Scores of trophies sit in glass cases that line the concourse; championship ball caps and basketball nets adorn some of OSU’s aging pieces of athletics hardware. In its heyday, St. John was the stuffy home to Buckeyes’ men’s and women’s basketball in addition to the other sports. Built for about $4 million and with 13,276 seats, St. John’s time as home to the basketball programs lasted from 1956 until the 1998-99 seasons when both teams began playing at the then-new Schottenstein Center. St. John was home to arguably the greatest era of OSU men’s basketball — the 1960 national championship team, as well as the 1961 and 1962 national runner-up teams, called the arena home. From 1960-1964, coach Fred Taylor led the team to five consecutive Big Ten Conference titles, a streak that remains unmatched to this day. The OSU men last played a game at St. John in 2010-11, while the women’s team won two NCAA Tournament games at the venue during the same year.

University Police, who denied to give The Lantern information regarding on whether any disciplinary action had been taken against the suspects of any of the crimes. In interviews for the Nov. 26 article about the third reported sex crime to happen this semester in Park-Stradley Hall, OSU Police Chief Paul Denton said “there’s some FERPA issues involved” with releasing that information. “They can’t use FERPA to protect criminal things,” Cuillier said, although he added, “legally they don’t even have to return your phone calls.” He said that citing HIPAA in that situation was “just silly.” Denton said in an email that he does not believe any laws were violated by citing FERPA in this case. “(I) cannot explain nor comment on any information you obtained from a legal blog about FERPA and CLERY interpretation. I follow the legal guidance of the OSU Office of Legal Affairs. I do not agree that there (h)as been ‘misuse’ in regard to the response or criminal investigation of these crimes,” Denton said. Dave Isaacs, OSU spokesman for Student Life, said in interviews for the same article that he could not tell The Lantern about the judicial processes “because that’s all HIPAA protected.” Isaacs was unavailable for comment Tuesday, but Student Life spokeswoman Kellie Uhrig said in an email that “if Dave (Isaacs) referenced HIPAA, he simply mistakenly used the wrong acronym, and meant to reference FERPA. Due to FERPA regulations, the university is not at liberty to comment on any individual student conduct-related issue.” However, Cuillier said the explanations didn’t add up. “I don’t understand how that would pertain to someone sexually assaulting someone,” Cuillier said. Denton added that University Police stands by their statements that the crimes are not an ongoing threat and there is no need for a public safety notice. “After evaluating all the facts and circumstances of the recently reported cases, we do not believe that these incidents pose a continuing threat to students or the university community as a whole,” Denton said. He also said that the Office of Student Conduct would need to be contacted for specific questions about any disciplinary action that has been taken against the suspects.

Housing from 1A Stepp said lighting issues and pedestrian traffic safety will be looked at as well. “We will certainly probably hear some other things, so we need to investigate or we may even reach out and see, ‘Well actually this wasn’t as big of a problem as we thought it was.’ That’s why we’re doing this,” Stepp said. Off-campus real estate agencies, however, have seen programs like this in the past. Wayne Garland, owner of Buckeye Real Estate, said the overall motive of the task force is very well intentioned, but “not exactly anything new.” Garland said he doesn’t see any downsides to the task force, but hopes it wasn’t created to “pump up their resume.” “I would say that the students need to truly make themselves stakeholders and not just doing stuff to pump up their resume,” said Garland, who has owned Buckeye Real Estate

Like the women’s volleyball team, OSU men’s volleyball still calls St. John its home. On Jan. 14, the men’s team, guided by its coach of 28 years, Pete Hanson, added to St. John lore with a banner hung along the rails of the stadium’s upper deck to celebrate its 2011 NCAA National Championship. Hanson said St. John holds many other special memories for he and his current and former players. “It’s kind of hard to describe, I guess,” Hanson said of the stadium he’s coached in for nearly three decades. “It’s one of those things — it’s kind of like putting on a good pair of shoes or a nice pair of gloves, it just fits right. It just feels good when you’re in that arena.” St. John was palatial in its day but will soon clear out for the modern amenities of 21st century stadium. Covelli Arena will feature administrative offices, a ticket office, concession area, catering space and meeting facilities for most of the athletic department’s 13,000 annual campers, according to an OSU release. There’s still something about the musk of St. John and the hardback, wooden seats that grabs people when they walk inside, Carlston said. “There’s so much nostalgia built in with that building, and you feel it. You feel it when you’re in there,” Carlston said. “There’s an aura to it. It

feels like a lot has happened in there, and the reality is it has.” For Carlston and Hanson, the concept of Covelli Arena is worth a mention when they’re out on the recruiting trail, but little more considering the lack of a date for a groundbreaking ceremony and a construction timeline. “We’re not afraid to tell our current recruits that, ‘Hey, this is a plan the athletic department has,’ … We can’t be very specific about it because … (OSU doesn’t) even know when they’re going to put the first shovel in the ground,” Hanson said. “We’re just telling those kids that, ‘Hey, there’s a chance that maybe by the fourth of fifth year of your career here, if you were to come either in 2013 or 2014, there’s a pretty good chance you might be playing in a brand new facility.’” Carlston said he wants to see brick and mortar results on a construction site before he gets more excited about Covelli Arena. In the meantime, St. John will suit him just fine. “There’s hominess to it. The history oozes from everywhere in there,” he said. “Kids come in and they love (St. John Arena). St John is very impressive, so there’s an ‘oh’ and ‘ah’ factor.”

for 19 years and has been affiliated with the company dating back to his college career at OSU. After issuing the comprehensive report, the task force will develop “student development goals” to address any off-campus problems. “These are things that we are researching to see if they’re problems, and then we have a policy action plan built into them if they are problems,” Stepp said. For implementing these goals, Stepp said he hopes “all parties are interested in collaborating.” “We are going to talk to these groups once we have recommendations,” Stepp said. “We’re going to see how we can work together, how we can partner and collaborate to make student housing more affordable.” Garland said he would be willing to cooperate with the task force since he has worked with students and heard their opinions through his company.

“I have a lot of young people that work for me, so we always try to get input from them,” Garland said. “I’m not saying that everything I do is the right way to do it, so if there are things that need to be changed or modified that help us and the way we operate, I’m always open to it.” Some students said the task force is good for the off-campus community. Alex Reinhorn, a third-year in aviation management, said while he is happy with his off-campus apartment, some of his friends live in conditions that can definitely be improved. Rachel Fox, a fourth-year in fashion and retail studies, agreed and said the program is a good way to protect students. “I think it’s a good idea, especially with my rental company,” Fox said. “There have been hidden fees … so I think it’s a really good idea and it will help kind of protect students in the long-run.”

campus 12-0 season, accidents, Obama visits make semester memorable ryan busansky Lantern reporter busansky.1@osu.edu Ohio Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fall Semester is almost in the books and while the transition went as smoothly as many students could have hoped for, there were of course a few notable moments. The Urban Meyer-led undefeated football season, the ParkStradley water main break, a string of safety accidents and the creation of the university Safety Task Force, a joint jurisdiction agreement between OSU Police and the Columbus Division of Police, and two visits from President Barack Obama all stuck out as memorable. Buckeyes Go Undefeated Despite facing a BCS postseason ban in 2012, the Buckeyes exceeded expectations and clinched the sixth undefeated and untied season in program history. The undefeated season, climaxing with a win in Ohio Stadium against Michigan on Nov. 24, was a fitting outcome for the first-year coach after excitement surrounding the hire. Meyer stressed the importance of this teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seniors throughout the entirety of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re losing some of your children when they go away to college,â&#x20AC;? said Meyer after the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season-ending win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our house is going to be empty.â&#x20AC;? Sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller totaled 28 touchdowns, but did not receive an invitation to the Heisman Trophy ceremony. He will soon turn his attention to next season where Miller and the Buckeyes will likely be ranked highly in the preseason. Park-Stradley Hall water main break evacuates students About 2,000 students were evacuated from Park-Stradley Hall, Baker Hall East and West and the Ohio Union following a water main break on Sept. 16. Students found their own places to sleep or spent the night in the RPAC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a major water leak, and it started filling up the basement. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also filling up all the tunnels, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty major leak under there,â&#x20AC;? said Jim Cannell, deputy chief of Columbus Fire on the day of the incident. Residents of Baker halls were able to return to their dorm the next morning, students living in Park-Stradley were not permitted to return to their rooms until three days after the incident for longer than the time to grab a few items. Park-Stradley residents returned to their building without access to hot water, drinking water, heating or air conditioning in their rooms on Sept. 19, and received $90 in compensation for the inconvenience.

Joint Jurisdiction driven by students University Police and Columbus Police reached an agreement in September that gave University Police the authority to respond to emergency situations in the off-campus area. The University Police was previously unable to act off-campus without the permission of the Columbus Police. While University Police is still not permitted to patrol off-campus, it has the authority to stop and investigate if they see something suspicious going on to or from university property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a student-driven initiative from last fall,â&#x20AC;? said University Police Chief Paul Denton after the Sept. 19 meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Undergraduate Student Government felt it was important to enhance officer presence and responsiveness around the neighborhood and particularly crimes that happened on the borders, where sometimes there were some limits on where officers could and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go even if they witnessed a crime.â&#x20AC;? Safety accidents and creation of the Safety Task Force A student was hit by a dump truck near a construction site on Woodruff Avenue in a Sept. 5 accident. James Daniel Hughes, a first-year in chemical engineering, had his right leg amputated. First-year student Rachel Stump was involved in an Aug. 19 car accident that led to a coma. She is recovering in her hometown of Troy, Ohio. Several other accidents occurred on and off campus involving bicyclists and pedestrians, leading to the creation of a Safety Task Force announced to students and staff in an e-mail on Sept. 7. The task force was created per the request of OSU President E. Gordon Gee. The task force announced in October that they would be making sign changes, begin requiring students to dismount and walk their bikes across the Oval, and work to achieve â&#x20AC;&#x153;a campus culture that is accommodating and respectful of all modes of transportation,â&#x20AC;? according to the email.

OSU’s Thad Matta uses expanded rotation EVAN SPEYER Lantern reporter speyer.10@osu.edu As the preseason No. 4-ranked team in the country, the Ohio State men’s basketball team opened the season with lofty, and perhaps unreasonable, expectations. After all, the Buckeyes have to replace the scoring production from two departed stars — last year’s leading scorer Jared Sullinger, who was picked up by the Boston Celtics in the NBA Draft, and four-year starter William Buford. Through six games Buckeye Nation is starting to see where that production will come from. Maybe not surprisingly, the three returning starters from last year’s Final Four squad, junior guards Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr., and junior forward Deshaun Thomas, are leading the team in scoring. But thanks to what seems to be a fundamental change in coach Thad Matta’s philosophy, the Buckeyes are getting a nice boost from their bench as well. In his eight seasons at OSU, Matta has gained a reputation for relying heavily on his starting five, while giving maybe a player or two sparing minutes off the bench. Though the sample size is small, it appears Matta intends to invest in his bench more this season. Two bench players are averaging more than 18 minutes per game so far for the Buckeyes, and another is getting more than 15 minutes of play. Last season, OSU’s leading reserves averaged about 11 minutes of action per game. Granted, some of these statistics might be bolstered because OSU has won convincingly in a few of its games, allowing Matta to give younger players extra in-game experience. But even in a loss to No. 2 Duke on Nov. 28, Matta played sophomore guard Shannon Scott and sophomore center Amir Williams for 20 and 27 minutes, respectively.

“I’m probably a little bit more comfortable with the depth that we have, and just the different things that we can present when we’re on the court,” Matta said. The “different things” speak to the versatile lineups Matta has at his disposal when he taps into his reserves. Scott is a speedy guard, and when played alongside Craft, the duo can wreak havoc in transition. Though he is still developing an offensive skill set, the 6-foot-11 Williams is OSU’s most imposing interior defender. And then there is sophomore forward LaQuinton Ross, who might be one of the best pure-scorers on the team. “I think that’s one thing that our team is great at, being versatile,” said Ross, who leads all reserves with 9.3 points per game.

The importance of Ross’s ability as a scorer can’t be understated. In OSU’s eight losses last season, the bench averaged a meager 3.12 points per game, and was outscored 65-25. With a more reliable scoring punch coming from the reserves this year, OSU’s starters don’t face the burden of carrying the entire scoring load. “It’s a big key to this team,” said Thomas, the team’s leading scorer. “Guys like Ross and Scott coming off the bench and scoring really well, that helps us out as a team.” Matta’s deeper rotation has a positive effect that extends past game days.

Fighting Irish resemble 2002 Buckeyes

MONDAY

Top 25 College Basketball Poll

DANIEL CHI / Asst. photo editor

OSU junior forward Deshaun Thomas drives to the basket and puts a shot up during a Dec. 1 game against Northern Kentucky. OSU won, 70-43.

Ohio State and Notre Dame football fans don’t always get along, but when comparing the 2002 Buckeyes and the 2012 Fighting Irish, silver and gold might have more in common than they would like to admit. For starters, defense seems to have been a pillar for both squads’ success. The 2002 Buckeye defense allowed an average of 13 points per game during the run and they held five of their opponents to seven points or less.

This years, Notre Dame has given up 10.3 points per game and held five of their opponents to seven points or less. The greatest challenge for OSU’s 2002 team was their final game against the Miami Hurricanes offense that averaged almost 42 points per game during the regular season. Likewise, Notre Dame will try to tackle an Alabama team that has put up 38.5 points per game this season in the BCS National Championship Game on Jan. 7. For the 2002 Buckeyes and 2012 Fighting Irish, their defenses were stout enough to will them through some tight contests. This year, Notre Dame has won five of their games by seven points or less including two games (Stanford on Oct. 13 and Pittsburgh on Nov. 3) which went into overtime. The latter contest, which was the closest to ending the Fighting Irish’s perfect season, ended, 29-26, in triple overtime. Seven of OSU’s 14 games during the 2002 season were decided by seven points or less. Perhaps the most memorable of those games was the

10-6 victory against Purdue when a former OSU quarterback Craig Krenzel completed a 37-yard game-winning touchdown pass to former wide receiver Michael Jenkins with less than two minutes left in the game. In his first full season as a starter, Krenzel did not put up outrageous video game-like numbers. Then a junior, he threw for 2,110 yards passing, 12 touchdowns, seven interceptions and a 59.4 completion percentage. Plenty of other quarterbacks around the country put up more impressive stats, but it likely did not matter to Buckeyes fans because of the season he put together. Redshirt freshman quarterback Everett Golson has shared time under center with junior Tommy Rees in his first season playing for Notre Dame, but he is without question the starting quarterback of his team now after strong performances down the stretch. Much like Krenzel, his stats will not wow any avid sports fan that looks at them a decade from now. In 11 games played, Golson has

a 58.9 completion percentage and thrown for 2,135 yards, 11 touchdowns and five interceptions. He ranks 79th in the FBS among quarterbacks in passing yards but if he leads the Irish to a win on Jan. 7, Golson might live in the same lore as Krenzel. Coming into the 2002 National Championship Game the Buckeyes were an 11.5-point underdog against the dominant Hurricanes. OSU was taking on the defending national champions, which were riding a 34-game win streak and held a 54-8 record since the beginning of the 1998 season. A similar task awaits the Irish. As of Dec. 3, Notre Dame is listed as a nine-point underdog against the Crimson Tide, this season’s defending national champions, but also have a 60-7 record over the past five seasons. Like the Scarlet and Gray of 2002, the Fighting Irish might need to inspiring football to overcome such odds. But don’t be surprised if Golson and Notre Dame are raising up a crystal football at the conclusion of the national championship game.

sports Rotation from 5A up for grabs, players are fighting in practice to prove that they deserve playing time. “Everyday in practice we all go after it,” Scott said. “We all know that we have to compete every day. It makes us all better as players.” For now, Matta said he is just looking for some consistency. “Each guy has to get a couple things that we can hang our hat on every time we take the court,” Matta said. “And it can’t be from one game you do this to the next game you don’t do that. That’s when you become a really good basketball team.”

Men’s, women’s diving finish strong during weekend meet on campus kayla zamary Lantern reporter zamary.3@osu.edu The Ohio State men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams finished the OSU Invitational strong, with the men winning the invitational and the women placing third, behind Florida and Stanford. This contest marked the fourth-consecutive championship in which the No. 10-ranked men’s team finished with 300 or more more points than their competitors. “We really appreciate Florida, North Carolina, Texas, Wisconsin and everyone else who came to participate in our meet because without great competition, there are not great races or opportunity to compete against good coaches and good programs,” said men’s coach Bill Wadley in a released statement. The men finished the invitational with 10 wins out of the 18 swimming contests the team participated in. Sophomore Steven Zimmerman achieved the team’s first victory in the 200 backstroke with a personal best time of 1:42.85. Senior Jason Schnur concluded the 100

6A

freestyle with his season best time of 43.31 and his third event success at the invitational. Men’s diving junior Shane Miszkiel led the Buckeyes with a score of 363.10 to win the platform finals. The women’s team finished the invitational with a collective 589 points. Altogether, 22 Buckeyes received one individual NCAA “B” time standards and 18 swimmers finished one championship final. Freshman Annie Lazor seized a NCAA “B” time in the 200 breaststroke competition for a time of 2:13.16. Lazor came in sixth overall in the invitational and her time was a best on the season. Junior diver Cheyenne Cousineau earned the one-meter springboard title and placed fourth with 259.85 points in the platform finals. “I’m really pleased,” said women’s coach Bill Dorenkott said in a press release. “We raced tough and consistent for the most part. We got stronger each session, and also got to see a lot in terms of racing and relays.” The men’s and women’s team will compete in a co-ed invitational on Jan. 11, at the McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion against Wright State.

OSU jockeys for position as it heads into home-and-home with Robert Morris dan salter Lantern reporter salter.36@osu.edu The Ohio State men’s hockey team is looking to take care of Robert Morris University in a two-game, home-and-home series before facing Miami next week in what could be a fight for first place in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association. This weekend, the Buckeyes, who are tied for second place in the conference with Notre Dame, will attempt to maintain their standing in the CCHA against the Colonials Friday night in Columbus before travelling to Pittsburgh for game two. In this series, OSU will try to keep pace with first place Miami, which leads the Buckeyes and Notre Dame by one point in the CCHA standings. Miami is home this weekend against eighth place Lake Superior State. If the Buckeyes and the Redhawks both win their respective series, their meetings on Dec. 14-15 in Columbus will be a head-to-head battle for first place in the CCHA. But OSU is trying not to look past Robert Morris. OSU coach Mark Osiecki said it’s a lesson the team learned last season. All the team is focused on now is a victory.

“You want to go out there and win and it doesn’t matter who you’re playing,” Osiecki said. While OSU will look at Robert Morris’ tendencies as a team and prepare accordingly, it might ultimately come down to how well the Buckeyes execute their own game plan. “At the end of the day, all we are really focused on is us, and playing OSU hockey,” said sophomore forward Ryan Dzingel. The series is OSU’s only series this season where the two games will be held in different venues. When asked if this would affect the team, Osiecki said his players grew up playing in travelling junior leagues and had experience with the format. “They’re used to getting on a bus,” Osiecki said. “I don’t think it changes a thing, especially when you start at home.” Senior goalie Brady Hjelle echoed the sentiment about players having been in junior leagues. “It will be just like that, so it isn’t anything new to us,” Hjelle said. Hjelle was recently named CCHA goaltender of the week for the second consecutive week after holding Michigan State to one goal on 54 shots last weekend. It is Hjelle’s third goaltender of the week award this season. Both contests are set to begin at 7:05 p.m.

We never thought this day would come. This is the last paper of the semester. The last paper of 2012. The last paper for all of those thousands of graduates that will never take another class at Ohio State. After we produced and you read 66 papers, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done. Of course weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not done. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re never done. News never stops. We know that as well as any. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll continue to put out content online over break and, come Jan. 7, The Lantern will fill newspaper racks across campus once again, as reliably and inevitably as our current looming finals. But for a brief time in December, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll rest. The entire campus will rest from schoolwork, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much deserved.

ALLY MAROTTI marotti.5@osu.edu

Coming into OSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first semester in decades, we all knew it would be a long and arduous term. The longest of many of our lives. But we did it. And although it seemed like a struggle at times, maybe even most of the time, we got to witness history. President Barack Obama was re-elected for another four years as the leader of the free world. Some people were annoyed with a bombardment of political ads in the months leading up to the race and felt the barrage of persuasion of people on the Oval telling you to go out and vote. But where some saw annoyance, we saw history in the making. OSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campus became a political battleground. Obama visited campus twice this fall. Both he and former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney swarmed Columbus throughout Fall Semester, culminating their races in the city. All eyes were on Ohio and, with an important youth vote, the world focused in on Ohio State. While the political junkies on campus focused on their campaign efforts, many others had their gaze on Ohio Stadium. With coach Urban Meyer at the helm of a football team that couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be beaten, each Saturday brought different tales of triumph and success. The Mirror Lake jump might have meant a little more this year as The Game was all that stood between OSU and a perfect season. Then, on Nov. 26, the Buckeyes did something only five other teams have ever done in the history of the university â&#x20AC;&#x201D; by beating Michigan they completed a perfect 12-0 season. But the successes that came with this semester donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t outshine the sorrows. With increased traffic on campus because of the class change

times on semesters, we saw plenty of strife at the beginning of the year, as students were struck by cars on what seemed like a regular basis in August and September. Some students walked away practically unscathed from these run-ins, but others â&#x20AC;&#x201D; such as James Hughes, who lost a leg, or Rachel Stump, who lost her freshman year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are still recuperating and will never be the same. We saw the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seemingly weak attempts at creating a task force to help lessen these accidents, and finally we saw them die down. We saw Park-Stradley, a new building on South Campus, rise and fall. A water-main break caused the residents â&#x20AC;&#x201D; residents that we have since seen plagued with three reported rapes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to be evacuated for three days. And efforts that began last year were finally concluded. The Columbus Division of Police and the OSU Police finally reached joint jurisdiction agreements, allowing University Police to patrol off-campus areas. Through it all, some of you â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we hope most of you â&#x20AC;&#x201D; turned to us for your news, and for that we are grateful. Sometimes you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize the history youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re experiencing while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re living it, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where we come in. The Lantern will always be here to help you remember the things you might forget, the things you might not have had time to fully take in. This semester was hard, probably one of the hardest, but you are all lucky. You got to experience history like no one ever has before. We got to write that history and, for us, that was incredible. We thank you for reading, and hope you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop.

Be open-minded but cautious when house hunting for next year ASST. Arts editor

CAITLIN ESSIG essig.21@osu.edu

Living in a dorm has perks that are crucial to a studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s college experience. Dorms are the easiest places to meet people and make friends, easing your adjustment into your new home. They can also feel like a sad, dark place where the walls are closing in tighter each day. In a dorm room, privacy, along with freedom, is scarce if you have a nosy resident adviser. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good chance that at least once during the school year a roommate will lock you out or youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be forced to wake up early or fall asleep late due to conflicting schedules between yourself and those you share a single room with. Moving off campus often appears as a shiny, golden vision of perfection to freshmen. The thought of having your own room can seem too good to be true. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly not as easy as walking east of High Street, pointing at the least-sketchy-looking townhouse in the best location and claiming it as your own.

Acquiring the perfect living situation in college is a dream that will likely just never quite come true. Chances are, most off-campus residents wish they were a little closer to campus, their rent was a little cheaper, their neighbors were a little quieter, or their house was a little bigger. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to pay attention to red flags in order to have as few of those problems as possible. For example, when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking of renting a townhouse and the girls who live there now tell you the landlord comes in the house with little or no warning, you should consider the awkward situations that might create. No one wants to be surprised by a visit from their 80-something-year-old landlord when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just woken up or just stepped out of the shower. And when those same girls who warned you about the landlord tell you the walls are paper thin and you can hear everything that goes on in each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bedrooms, take that advice to heart. Otherwise, look forward to sleepless nights as you unintentionally eavesdrop on everything happening in the room above or below you. That house youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested in renting, did you take time to really inspect the important rooms, like the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry area? Because if you take a moment to look around, maybe youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll notice that the dishwasher and refrigerator doors donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t open all the way because the kitchen is too narrow, or the

Iran cannot create a nuclear weapon Letter to the editor

KELLY RODERICK / Lantern photographer

When house hunting this season, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to heed advice from current residents and weigh your options carefully. washer door doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stay open on its own because it hits the shelf above it, or the bathroom in the basement is actually the creepiest and most disgusting place on earth. Furthermore, discuss with your roommates things like adjusting rent in line with bedroom size before you move in. While taking the smallest or dingiest bedroom in the house isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the end of the world, I guarantee youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be less bitter about your box-sized den compared to your roommateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s master suite if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting a few dollars knocked off your rent payment each month. Living off campus is wonderful for many reasons, especially when

it comes to moving from the prison that was crowded, exiled Lincoln Tower to a decent, cozy little Waldeck Avenue townhouse. But before you sign a lease, make sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re completely satisfied with your decision, and with the company or landlord youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re renting from. Be open-minded throughout the search process, and get started early, because chances are if you wait too long after winter break, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll either end up on North Fourth Street in a sketchy, run-down house where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re constantly fearing for your life, or back in those dorms you so desperately wanted to escape. And for the record, the latter is always the better choice.

Iranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuclear program is a direct threat to the United States and our allies, and we must demand that our elected officials prevent Iran from achieving the capability to create a nuclear weapon. Allowing the Iranian regime would have disastrous effects to the security of the world. As the lead state sponsor of global terrorism, Iran would be able to greatly increase its support for terrorist attacks, knowing that retaliation would be unlikely for the risk of nuclear retaliation. In the past year, the Iranian regime has sponsored terrorist attacks in Bulgaria, India, Georgia and Azerbaijan. It has also attempted to blow up the Saudi ambassador to the United States at a cafĂŠ in Washington D.C. Iran ships missiles regularly to terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah and to their ally, President Bashar al-Assad of Syria to murder his own citizens. With a nuclear bomb, we can only expect an increase in this radical behavior. Finally, statements by officials in other Middle Eastern Nations such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Turkey make it clear that the completion of an atomic bomb would set off a nuclear arms race in one of the most unstable regions of the globe. In order to prevent this national security disaster, we must insist that our leaders continue to increase sanctions on the Iranian economy and establish a credible military threat to show that the world will not tolerate nuclear weapons in its hands. Our policy makers must know that Americans on both sides of the aisle hold them accountable to make sure that the national security of our country and our allies remains a top priority.

Columbus to get tangled up in ‘Quidam’

Columbus to stage a classic Check inside for an article about BalletMet Columbus’ 35th performance of ‘The Nutcracker.’

concerts Wednesday

Brightly colored stages, flying acrobats, live music and outlandish costumes might open up a world of imagination for audiences as the Cirque du Soleil show “Quidam” opens in Columbus. “Quidam” is scheduled to be performed 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Nationwide Arena. Cirque du Soleil is world-renowned for the quality of high-performing acrobats and the visuals of the different worlds each show portrays through costumes and stages. Josée Campeau, cello player and original “Quidam” band member, said “Quidam” takes on a dream-like state, as the plotline surrounds the imagination of a little girl who plays the main character. “I really like how the show is built,” Campeau said. “I don’t have a favorite part of the show exactly, but I do have some acts that I really like. I think overall the atmosphere of the show is very dreamlike and whimsical.” Rehearsals and creation for what is called a big top show begins with a selection of acts between three and five years in advance to try and look at the framework for a new show. The creators also keep an eye out for new acts and acrobats around the world to incorporate into the performances. About a year prior to the show opening, the company holds rehearsals and starts training in Montreal.

“Quidam” was transformed into an arena show about two years ago, Campeau said. This required the show to go through some transformations, such as cast changes and a new rehearsal period to adjust to the new settings. Each Cirque du Soleil show has a distinct character, and the creativity in the acts and performances can be seen in any of the shows, Campeau said. The context and the storyline are also different because sometimes there isn’t a prominent storyline, depending on the show. The show has a live full-cast band including vocals, cello, violin, guitar, drums and keyboards playing together. The band also gets assistance from computer software to produce sounds and loops that are played at a lower volume underneath the band‘s instruments. The audience will hear about 90 minutes of music being played continuously throughout the show by the band, and Campeau said it takes a lot of practice to play an instrument that long. “It’s not that hard to play that long when you are musicians and you train and you practice, but it requires a lot of discipline if you want to perform well and feel good with what you do for the audience,” Campeau said. Campeau has been performing with the company since the mid-1990s. “It was a dream for me to work with the company,” Campeau said. “I started in 1996 when I heard through friends, that were also musicians, about auditions for the company.”

When the “Harry Potter” franchise was ready to be wrapped up, filmmakers made the decision to split the adaptation of the seventh and final book, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” into two parts. It was certainly a financial decision — it makes sense that a major studio would want to keep a huge money-making franchise around as long as possible — but it was a creative decision as well. “Deathly Hallows” was, like many of the “Harry Potter” books, incredibly long. The U.S. edition

was more than 700 pages, and almost every one of them is vital to the story. It would have been a real chore to condense it all down into one feature-length passage, and thus audiences paid to see “Part 1” and “Part 2” of the film adaptation. While this split was probably necessary, the fact that it worked set off one of the most unfortunate trends in modern blockbuster filmmaking. The “Twilight” films took a page out of the “Harry Potter” playbook and split its final book into two padded-out parts, and by all accounts the “Hunger Games” series plans to do the exact same thing. Next week, this trend will reach its potential nadir with the release of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” Dec. 14. This marks the beginning of “Lord of the Rings” director Peter Jackson’s new Middle Earth trilogy that just happens to be based on a single 300-page book. If anybody could pull this off, it is probably Peter Jackson. His “Lord of the Rings” trilogy is a terrific feat of filmmaking, but the difference this time around is that “The Hobbit” is

prospect of sitting through two-anda-half hours of appetizers and then waiting a year for the next course is just not all that appealing.

From a hurricane that threatened our country’s biggest and brightest city to a painfully addicting Korean pop song that smashed Internet records, 2012 was a whirlwind year in pop culture. Let’s take a look back and reminisce about some of the year’s greatest sensations and juiciest headlines. Television HBO’s “Girls,” the hipster version of “Sex and the City,” which chronicles the lives of three straight-talking New Yorkers, premiered in April. The Summer Olympics broadcasted live from London, and the U.S. led the world pack with 104 medals, but it doesn’t really matter because judging by her facial expression, American gymnast McKayla Maroney is still not impressed. Reality talent shows realized their contestants weren’t actually their biggest draws, so they started recruiting big-name celebrity judges: Britney Spears and Demi Lovato joined Fox’s “The X Factor,” Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban signed on for “American Idol,” also on Fox, and Usher and Shakira are slated to replace Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera on the next season of NBC’s “The Voice.” MTV announced the last season of “Jersey Shore” and, sadly, Hurricane Sandy followed suit by wrecking the familiar Jersey Shore pier, tearing it to shreds during the course of the storm’s week-long assault on the U.S.’ East Coast.

A feisty ball of energy sporting a sequined tutu and calling herself Honey Boo Boo hijacked TLC’s airwaves in August, leaving viewers with memorable catchphrases like, “you’d better redneckognize.” Lastly, “Boy Meets World” stars Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel signed on to star in a Disney spin-off show called “Girl Meets World,” but no word yet on whether Mr. Feeny will follow suit. Celebrities Some relationships blossomed and some crumbled. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made their debut as Kimye, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt got engaged, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake got married, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise divorced and Taylor Swift split with about half the population of male celebrities under the age of 35. Ryan Gosling was robbed of another Sexiest Man of the Year award from “People” magazine, losing to chiseled “Magic Mike” star Channing Tatum. But there was no shortage of Gosling once the wise-cracking Tumblr “Feminist Ryan Gosling” went viral. Lindsay Lohan attempted a career comeback by starring in the Lifetime movie “Liz and Dick,” which premiered in November, but it was deemed a disappointment and Lohan has been off the radar ever since. We also said goodbye to some great icons in 2012, including musicians Whitney Houston, Adam Yauch, Etta James, Donna Summer and Robin Gibb, astronaut Neil Armstrong, TV personality Dick Clark and actor Michael Clarke Duncan.

In 2012 the Tumblr ‘Feminist Ryan Gosling’ went viral.

Celebrities from 10A On a happier note, it was announced in December that Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, is pregnant, putting an end to the speculation that began the moment she and Prince William said, “I do.” No word yet on whether the royal birth will air live on NBC. Viral Hits and Cultural Obsessions One Direction became the leading cause of hyperventilation among teenage girls in the U.S. as it rekindled the boy band craze. The quintet even sold out U.S. shows scheduled for a full year in advance. Pretty much every female with a set of eyes and the ability to read sunk their teeth into “Fifty Shades of Grey,” the novel that quickly became a guilty pleasure. In a bizarre turn of events, “My Little Pony” became the cartoon of choice for a quasi-cult of guys who call themselves “Bronies.” Obama might have won this year’s election, but he definitely wasn’t the only president getting attention this year — Abraham Lincoln was seemingly everywhere, from the Steven Spielberg classic “Lincoln” to the perhaps less prestigious “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” Carly Rae Jepsen’s painfully catchy tune “Call Me Maybe” was the song of the summer, but it was soon overshadowed when Korean pop took the U.S. by storm and PSY’s “Gangnam Style” became the most watched video of all time on YouTube with 884 million views as of Tuesday. The iPhone 5 debuted in September looking a little taller and slimmer. 2012 was also the year of visuals — apps such as Instagram and Snapchat exploded onto the scene. And whether it was technology, reality TV or Bronies and Korean pop threading through popular culture in the U.S., 2012 was undoubtedly a year to look back on and in some respects one to be proud of.

Byron Edgington is a husband, a progressive activist, a Vietnam veteran, a retired commercial helicopter pilot, an Ohio State alumnus and, most recently, an author. Edgington’s memoir “The Sky Behind Me: A Memoir of Flying & Life” was published Thanksgiving weekend. The book touches on his humble Irish-Catholic beginnings and growing up in Central Ohio. The story then follows him from his first stint as a student at OSU, which was cut short when he was drafted to serve in the Vietnam War as a helicopter pilot. Edgington ended up logging more than 1,000 service hours before moving on to a career as a commercial pilot, tackling everything from corporate to EMS flights to flying tours around the Hawaiian island of Kauai. The latter escapade he said was his favorite flying memory. During one of his tours he was flying with a woman who he later found out was terminally ill, and his tour was the final item on her bucket list. When the tour began, the woman told Edgington if she didn’t see a rainbow, she wanted a refund. It soon started to rain, which Edgington apologized for, but told her it was OK because “no rain, no rainbow.” Sure enough, they saw a double rainbow shortly after. The woman died not long after the tour, and “no rain, no rainbow,” is a lesson Edgington said he has taken with him ever since. That motto, Edgington said, is also a good way to describe “The Sky Behind Me.” Noted a few times in the book, Edgington delt with harsh setbacks in life including being drafted in the military and experiencing a crash landing, but he always bounced back and ended up even better off, he said. The memoir also covers Edgington returning to OSU at 62 years old and majoring in English, and the challenges and rewards that came along with the experience. He said while he has always done a lot of writing and he believes writing is a muscle that can only grow from being worked, his time at OSU taught him some valuable technical skills.

Hobbit from 10A As more and more literary adaptations attempt to chop up the source material as much as possible, any illusion that these films are purely creative endeavors is going to fade away. When a studio or filmmaker splits the final “Twilight” or “Hunger Games” movie in two, they are, in essence, doubling their profits. It really couldn’t be a more brazen commercial move, and that certainly seems to be the case with “The Hobbit.” Jackson can expand upon the Middle Earth universe all he wants, but the primary reason he’s stretching it out this much is because he’s going to get more money out of it by the end.

OSU alumnus Byron Edgington’s memoir ‘The Sky Behind Me: A Memoir of Flying & Life’ was published in November. Edgington said his love for writing stems from being the second of 10 children. Because he couldn’t get a word in edgewise among his siblings, he learned to write down his thoughts. Nikki Meyer, publishing coordinator at the book’s publishing company, The Educational Publisher, said since its release, “The Sky Behind Me” has sold well, and it’s expecting to really pick up as the author steps up his promotional efforts, including book readings.

This decision also screws over the audiences, as it makes the movie-going experience dramatically less satisfying. When a movie ends on a cliffhanger like “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” did, it doesn’t quite leave viewers with the feeling they’ve gotten their money’s worth. And yet just 12 months later, they paid the exact same amount of money for a ticket to see the second half. Once audiences catch on to this tactic, it’s probably going to fade away just like anything else. In this case, the sooner that happens the better.

Quidam from 10A Campeau earned her bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree and her masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in chamber music interpretation at the Montreal Music Conservatory. The classically-trained cello player said working for Cirque du Soleil took her down a different career path than she had planned. Jessica Leboeuf, the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s publicist, said there are several different layers to the background and the storyline of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quidam.â&#x20AC;? She said audience members will walk away from the show with a sense of human connection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People will leave the show with very different experiences,â&#x20AC;? Leboeuf said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some will just come and be amazed by the acrobats and the visuals of the show while others will see the messages about organic connections between human beings and letting strangers into your life.â&#x20AC;? Another message in the show is the main characterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transition from girlhood into womanhood. Compared to other shows that have a fantasy setting, all of the creatures in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quidamâ&#x20AC;? have human-based characteristics. The settings and characters of the show have some students feeling curious about the show. Emily Hagenmaier, a fourth-year in chemistry, said she hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen Cirque du Soleil perform, but has heard of it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard they are pretty intense,â&#x20AC;? Hagenmaier said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been, but it seems interesting and I would like to see it sometime.â&#x20AC;? John Hardie, a fourth-year in strategic communication, has seen Cirque du Soleil before and said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know that they are all over the world and you should see them as much as possible,â&#x20AC;? Hardie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen a few and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of something I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy. They are all different shows but yet are similar at the same time.â&#x20AC;? Hardie hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen the latest from Cirque du Soleil but has heard the show is great to watch. Tickets, priced from $35 to $95 are available through Ticketmaster.

Visions of tutus and a Sugar Plum Fairy will inspire holiday memories for some as they barrage a Columbus stage this weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Nutcracker,â&#x20AC;? presented in its 35th year by BalletMet Columbus, is scheduled to be performed Friday at 7:30 p.m. through Dec. 23 at Ohio Theatre. Cheri Mitchell, executive director of BalletMet Columbus, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Nutcrackerâ&#x20AC;? is an important Christmas tradition for many people in Columbus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes people are coming for the first time, but some people come every year. It becomes their tradition among family or friends,â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said. Mitchell also said the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simple plot makes it enjoyable and easy to follow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone who has never gone to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Nutcrackerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; might think they may not understand it because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dance (and) there is no conversation,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, our â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nutcrackerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is very clear on the story.â&#x20AC;? She added that Roger Moore, who played James Bond in the James Bond movies from 1973 to 1985, recorded the narration for the performance, and that narration makes the story clearer. The combination of young and adult dancers in the show, Mitchell said, also makes the show attractive to watch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the stage, we have young children around 8 and 9. Those younger ones play in the few key areas like party scenes or the Sugar Plum scenes,â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And then we have teenagers and our professional dancers, who are anywhere from 21 to 39 years old.â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said without the help of Columbus locals, it probably would have been impossible to stage â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Nutcracker.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Several local choirs and vocal ensembles will perform in the second act, in the snow scene,â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Nutcracker,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; presented in its 35th year by BalletMet Columbus, is scheduled to be performed Dec. 7 - 23 at Ohio Theatre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also, local choirs will do fun things. They will sing before the show in the lobby.â&#x20AC;? These ensembles include a capella group the Hilliard Davidson Madrigals and the Bexley High School Vocal Ensemble. Mitchell said a local â&#x20AC;&#x153;funny manâ&#x20AC;? pulls their show to the next level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The choreographer worked with a local man, Robert Post, who is a performance artist. He is very much of a magician,â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said. Jenna Lautenschlager, a third-year in hospitality management, said she is interested in seeing â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Nutcracker.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be cool,â&#x20AC;? Lautenschlager said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think ballet is interesting and if the ticket isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expensive, I want to go see it.â&#x20AC;? Halle Rice, a second-year in exploration, said she is also enthusiastic about BalletMetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think everybody should experience it, because it is kind of tradition,â&#x20AC;? Rice said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also, the narration definitely helps people understand the plot. I think it is a good thing that they would do that.â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reason why a show like â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Nutcrackerâ&#x20AC;? has been performed for more than 30 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even see â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Nutcrackerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; until I was in my 30s and now I know why it is so special,â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this is something everyone should go to at least once.â&#x20AC;? Tickets for the show are priced from $20 to $78 and are available through Ticketmaster as well as the CAPA and BalletMet box offices. Ohio Theatre is located at 39 E. State St.

Seniors lead Buckeyes to perfect season

Ohio State 26 PAT BRENNAN Sports editor brennan.164@osu.edu

For all intents and purposes, the 2012 Ohio State football senior class is gone, never to wear scarlet and gray in meaningful competition again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re losing some of your children when they go away to college,â&#x20AC;? said first-year OSU coach Urban Meyer after the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season-ending win against Michigan on Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our house is going to be empty.â&#x20AC;? Gone? Perhaps, but not forgotten. After all, it was their contributions that made the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run at perfection a possibility. Behind the strength of many of those 21 departing seniors, the No. 4-ranked Buckeyes (12-0, 8-0 Big Ten) clinched the sixth undefeated and untied season in program history and the first since 2002 Saturday with a 26-21 win against archrival Michigan (8-4, 6-2 Big Ten) at Ohio Stadium. The 109th edition of The Game saw OSU, the Big Tenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Leaders Division champions, claim its 44th win against the Wolverines. UM, eliminated from Big Ten title contention after Nebraska beat Iowa on Friday, still owns the all-time series advantage with a 58-44-6 record. With Saturday being the final game of the season due to the NCAAimposed postseason ban, one thing was evident within minutes of the final whistle following victory against UM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; no more seniors.

Michigan 21

Meyer handed out several â&#x20AC;&#x153;thank youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? during his postgame remarks, but the biggest thank you went out to those whose eligibility is up, players like Zach Boren, Etienne Sabino and John Simon. Theirs was an effort worthy of remembrance, Meyer said, and he plans to ensure that their memory doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fade away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to see to it when you walk into that Woody Hayes (Athletic Center) this team will never be forgotten, because they deserve that,â&#x20AC;? he said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not hard to imagine why Meyer feels so strongly. Boren switched positions midseason, jumping from offense to defense when he left the fullback position to join a depleted line backing corps. Boren hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played linebacker since high school but, in just six games, he tallied 50 tackles, including a team-high nine in the win against UM. One of those tackles was a bone-jarring sack of Wolverines junior quarterback Devin Gardner. Boren stood above Gardner after the hit, shouting and rattling his face mask just above Gardnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Sabino broke his leg during OSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oct. 6 win against Nebraska but returned in time to join the team for its divisional-clinching win against Wisconsin on Nov. 17, as well as the game against the Wolverines. The redshirt senior linebacker said the 2012 season was indeed a dream. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want it to end any other way,â&#x20AC;? he said. And there was Simon, a defensive end and the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emotional leader throughout the perfect campaign. Simon missed Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s
