Sex scandals on college campuses: Could it happen at OSU?

Coming off a 14-37 record last year, the OSU softball team has created a new motto for inspiration this season.

[ a+e ]

Penn State, Syracuse, Wisconsin. These three institutions, synonymous with academic and athletic excellence, have been tarnished by sexual abuse scandals. Lives were changed forever, innocence robbed, reputations turned upside down. Could this happen at Ohio State and what is the university doing to prevent it? Legislation concerning mandatory sexual abuse reporting is pending in 25 states, but Ohio is not one of them. OSU has taken no additional action following the incidents at other schools, including two in the Big Ten. Gene Smith, OSU athletic director, said he is confident about the educational tools OSU has in place, although the athletic department has not done anything concerning the hot-button issue of sexual abuse in athletics. “I can’t say we do something that’s really unique, or really different since the Penn State case

Students driving force behind CABS service amanda Pierce Lantern reporter When rain begins to fall or snow starts piling up, some students hop on a Campus Area Bus Service (CABS) bus, many of which are driven by students themselves. Sarah Blouch, executive director of transportation and parking services, said students are an integral part of their staff. “We couldn’t make it without our student drivers,” Blouch said. Rayvion Sanford, a third-year in chemical and biomolecular engineering, has been driving CABS buses since August 2010 and said she likes the simplicity of her job. “It’s definitely an easy job,” Sanford said. “All we do is sit and drive.” Of the 120 total drivers this quarter, about 65 or 70 are students, said Thomas Holman, assistant director of transportation operations.

Student drivers usually begin on the wash crew when they are hired, cleaning the buses each night and replacing the advertisements inside, Holman said. After being on the wash crew, students start a training program that includes classroom instruction and behind-the-wheel training. When training is complete, typically after one academic quarter, students take an exam to receive their commercial driver’s license. Sanford said she decided to apply after seeing an ad for CABS bus driver positions and making a joke with her friends. “I was with a bunch of my friends and I said, ‘Oh my god, guys, I’m going to be a bus driver,’ and nobody believed me, so I did it anyway,” Sanford said. Sanford said she never thought she would be a bus driver and has picked up some pet peeves since starting the job.


“No one talks to the bus drivers,” Sanford said. “Everyone’s always, like, shocked when I open my mouth and say something.” Student drivers are cost-effective to hire and are able to relate to student riders, Blouch said.

“It’s kind of nice that they can certainly relate to what our university students are going through, trying to get to and from class,” Blouch said.

Former oSU running back Jaamal Berry appeared in court wednesday on assault charges.

Suspended Ohio State running back Jaamal Berry will no longer play for OSU and might be transferring away for good. Robert Tobias, the assistant city prosecutor assigned to the case, told The Lantern on the phone Wednesday that Berry’s defense attorney expressed Berry’s wish to transfer to another school. “My understanding is that … (Berry’s) desire would be to transfer somewhere else and so he could potentially get playing time. Whether he goes back to Florida or whether he goes somewhere else to go to school, I don’t know,” Tobias said. “It was told to me by the defense attorney that he was not on the team anymore and that he had a desire to relocate for school somewhere else out of state.” Berry, dressed in a black suit, talked privately

with his attorneys during his pre-trial Wednesday morning, but did not address the court directly. At one point, he leaned over to a woman with him and said he was “fine.” Berry’s attorney, William Meeks, and fellow attorney assigned to the case, Dave Thomas, were unavailable to comment further Wednesday evening. At Franklin County Municipal Court, Meeks said Berry remains in good standings as a student and on scholarship, but is no longer a part of the football team. The plaintiff’s attorney, Edwin Hollern, was not at the pre-trial hearing Wednesday, and told The Lantern in a phone interview that all case inquiries should be directed to the prosecutor. Jerry Emig, spokesman for the OSU athletic department, told The Lantern in an email that Berry is officially still on scholarship. “He is not working out with the team and he

OSU discloses all reporting rules, Gene Smith said. broke,” Smith said. “Obviously because of these cases we’ve heightened our conversation.” Sheldon Kennedy, a former NHL player who was sexually abused as a youth hockey player in Canada, said education and awareness is key to preventing instances of sexual abuse. “People need to be able to have a conversation,” Kennedy said. “They don’t have to be experts in it, but we need to have that conversation if something isn’t right.” Kennedy said OSU should provide as much education as possible to create a comfortable atmosphere for campus leaders and students. “If you walked around Ohio State and you asked people, the leaders, the teachers, sport coaches and deans, ‘Can you give me the definition of abuse and the legal and moral definitions around it?’ The odds of them getting the right answer aren’t very good,” Kennedy said. “But when it comes down to it, we’re all expected to do the right thing. So why wouldn’t we want to clearly and explicitly educate all our people?” ‘What are we going to do here?’ In November, former PSU defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was accused of a range of illegal acts from touching boys’ legs to violently sexually assaulting them. Sandusky remains on house arrest as he awaits his trial. Not even a month later, Syracuse assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine was fired for allegedly

sexually molesting numerous males, including former ball boys for the team. Some of those allegations dated back to the 1980s and 1990s. Former Wisconsin athletic director John Chadima resigned after allegations were reported that he sexually assaulted a student during a Rose Bowl party in January. Wisconsin Chancellor David Ward released a statement Monday that said campus police will be investigating new allegations against Chadima. The tragedies within these programs are something Smith said provided a learning experience for OSU, in that students can see education in action. “It gives you a window of opportunity to say, ‘See, this is what we’ve been preaching and this why you should feel comfortable if you see something or if something uncomfortable happens to you, or if you feel uncomfortable with just how someone is interacting with you, you need to bring it forward,’” Smith said. “Unfortunately, when we see cases like that, you have to use them the best you can to educate the people you serve.” Smith said he is constantly worried about sexual abuse happening at OSU. “I’ve always had that concern all my life, every day. I’ve seen a lot of things,” Smith said. “I didn’t need the Penn State (scandal) to create those concerns.” President E. Gordon Gee said he held a meeting Monday with his senior management council regarding the issue of sexual abuse and how OSU should deal with it going forward. Gee said he required his advisers to read New York Times reporter Pete Thamel’s coverage on what happened at PSU. “The answer is that you don’t know what you don’t know,” Gee said. “And so we went around the table and we asked, ‘What did we learn from this? What are we going to do here?’” Smith said he was not present at the meeting. Gee also said he can empathize with Graham Spanier, PSU’s former president who resigned in wake of the Sandusky charges. “More than likely is the fact that someone came into his office from the athletic department and said, ‘You know, we had an incident in our showers but we’ve taken care of it. By the way, we need $50 million for Beaver Stadium,’” Gee said. “You know, when you’re in my position, what happens is the bad news is underscored and the good news is tallied.” The victims, the accused parties and the university will never be the same, Gee said. But he said he believes it’s time for PSU to move forward.

President E. Gordon Gee said the victims of the Penn State sex-abuse scandal will never be the same. “I think that what happened at Penn State is enormously unfortunate,” he said. “Those victims were never the same and obviously it went on for a much longer period of time than it should have gone and the university should have acted more aggressively and I think we all agree with that.” Smith said OSU reminded coaches, students and staff of anonymous reporting procedures during an all-staff meeting at the beginning of the year, due to its own previous compliance issues last year. He said it will be brought up again at the next all-staff meeting. “We disclose all reporting rules, as a result of our NCAA case as well as the Penn State case,” Smith said. “Because that was another situation where people didn’t disclose, so we have an anonymous reporting line.” Smith said the athletic department monitors the anonymous reporting line on a daily basis. “We research every single thing that comes in,” Smith said. “That is the first thing we reminded all staff of last year, is that this anonymous reporting line is always open and available and carefully monitored.” Gee said he thinks OSU has a substantially more open culture than other places in the Big Ten. “Not that we’re pure, because we’re not and we’ve had our own problems,” Gee said. “And second of all, we have rules and procedures that we’re now taking a look at again to make sure that in those kinds of instances, we will do the right thing and we’ll do it quickly and we’ll do it expeditiously and clearly.” Scott Chipman, Big Ten assistant commissioner for communications, said all guidelines for sexual abuse are established on an “institutional level.” States take action According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, 25 states have introduced 63 bills concerning mandatory reporting of child abuse. Ohio is not a part of that list, according to the data. That same list names seven bills pending in Pennsylvania, one of which would add school staff, faculty and coaches to the group of people required to report suspected child abuse. Another one of the bills would require “individuals who have firsthand or secondhand knowledge of or reasonable cause to believe a child is being sexually abused to report the suspected child sexual abuse to law enforcement officials as soon as is practical.” The Pennsylvania General Assembly has yet to vote on the bills. Columbus-based attorney George Wolfe said Ohio law does not require everyday citizens to report sexual abuse, only certain licensed individuals. “So nurses, doctors, lawyers, psychologists, police officers, teachers, social workers or counselors all have to report any sexual abuse,” he said. “This is the only child abuse law about reporting sexual abuse that I am aware of.”

In direct relation to the PSU scandal, the Virginia House of Delegates gave preliminary approval to bills that would add coaches and leaders of private sports teams for public and private universities to report abuse or neglect of children. The three bills not only clearly state who is required to report sexual child abuse under Virginia law, but they also reduce the deadline to 24 hours for someone who suspects some type of child abuse to report it. OSU, on the institutional level, has a policy to report sexual abuse acts. “Any Human Resource Professional (HRP); supervisor, including faculty supervisors; chair/ director; or faculty member who becomes aware of information that would lead a reasonable person to believe that sexual harassment has occurred will notify the (appropriate offices) within five working days of becoming aware of the information,” according to the policy. According to research done by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every one in six boys and every one in four girls will be sexually abused by the age of 18. Further research done by the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, a non-profit anti-sexual assault organization, says 93 percent of child sexual assault victims will know their attacker, and 58.7 percent of those victims will be able to identify their attacker as an acquaintance. That same research reflects the resounding and haunting effects that sexual abuse has on its victims. Sexual abuse survivors are three times more likely to suffer from depression and four times more likely to contemplate suicide. Kennedy, who after retiring from the NHL founded Respect Group Inc., a group that advocates against sexual abuse, harassment and bullying, said he knows the psychological effects as an abuse survivor. “It’s significant for the rest of their lives and the end result in some cases, not all cases, is suicide and that’s where it takes people,” Kennedy said. Moving forward, setting the tone Smith said OSU has processes in place to protect its athletes, including a sports psychologist and many other outlets of reporting suspected sexual abuse.

Gene Smith said there are several educational tools in place to help combat sexual abuse on campus. Leif Smith, the contracted athletics psychologist for OSU, said he is available specifically for athletes for performance needs, drug and alcohol counseling, and general counseling for anxiety, depression and other needs. “So that’s a good thing about OSU is that we can keep a good pulse of what’s going on with the athletes and how they’re feeling, what’s going on, and really make sure they’re taken care of,” Leif Smith said.

VP of Public Policy at Komen resigns after controversy with Planned Parenthood Grace Fry Lantern reporter Karen Handel, senior vice president of public policy for Susan G. Komen for the Cure since April 2011, announced Tuesday she would be stepping down after the recent controversy about cutting off funding for breast cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood centers. Komen was accused of making the choice to no longer give grants to Planned Parenthood for political reasons. Some claimed Handel, former secretary of state of Georgia and self-declared “pro-life Republican,” was behind the initiative to cut off ties with the health organization consistently under fire from conservatives about their reproductive options for patients that include abortion. “I am deeply disappointed by the gross mischaracterizations of the strategy, its rationale and my involvement in it,” Handel said in her resignation letter to Komen founder and CEO Nancy Brinker. “I openly acknowledge my role in the matter and continue to believe our decision was the best one for Komen’s future and the women we serve.” Her resignation came one week after Komen first publicized their conclusion to no longer fund Planned Parenthood due to a newly enacted stipulation that any organization receiving funds from Komen might not be under any kind of government investigation. Planned Parenthood is currently under investigation for alleged misuse of government funds and other accusations by Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla. The decision to defund was retracted last Friday and funding for screenings at Planned Parenthood is still in place. “I think Komen is doing the right thing,” said Betsy Pillion, a third-year in linguistics, on the decision to keep the Planned Parenthood grants. “I’m glad they corrected their decision to defund.” Pillion said she considers Komen’s original decision to be a political one. “I wouldn’t question it so much if they made their stipulation to say investigations must be legitimate

Komen to resign. and not a smoke screen,” she said. “This was certainly political.” Others are unsure. “Regardless if it was Planned Parenthood or not, it was for cancer screenings,” said Christina Flessa, a second-year in sociology. “I think they got so much negative feedback it became political.” Many think the issue has caused people to lose sight of Komen’s mission. “We have made mistakes in how we have handled recent decisions and take full accountability for what has resulted, but we cannot take our eye off the ball when it comes to our mission,” said Brinker in a public statement Tuesday. “Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s mission is the same today as it was the day of its founding: to find a cure and eradicate breast cancer.”

The Lantern is an interdisciplinary laboratory student publication which is part of the School of Communication at The Ohio State University, with four printed daily editions Monday through Thursday and one online edition on Friday. The Lantern is staffed by student editors, writers, photographers, graphic designers and multimedia producers. The Lantern’s daily operations are funded through advertising and its academic pursuits are supported by the School of Communication. Advertising in the paper is sold largely by student account executives. Students also service the classified department and handle front office duties. The School of Communication is committed to the highest professional standards for the newspaper in order to guarantee the fullest educational benefits from The Lantern experience.

Sexual abuse Gene Smith said students, coaches, trainers and any other staff should go to their supervisor immediately if any sexual abuse is suspected. “If you don’t feel comfortable going to your supervisor because that unit, that group dynamic may have something that is a problem, then you come directly to the athletic director,” Gene Smith said. “If you have an issue and you don’t feel comfortable talking to your coach, Leif is a resource, trainers are a resource.” But Kennedy spoke of how victims can feel trapped, even with those outlets. “It’s not just the perpetrators that damages and hurts the victim here. It’s the institutions and the bystanders because they’re out there recruiting and they’re making lots of promises, like, ‘We’re going to protect you and we won’t let anything happen to you,’” he said. “And then for those leaders to see something like that and not do anything about it, the athletes start to think, ‘Oh geez, they’re not doing anything for me or standing up for me, it must be my fault, maybe I deserve this.’” Kennedy said the key is to provide an open-door policy and a platform for conversation moving forward. “What has to happen is that throughout the whole organization and within the whole community and school is there needs to be a common language around these issues,” Kennedy said. Gene Smith said he is aware conversation is the key to making athletes feel comfortable. “We felt what is important is to provide multiple options, because people need a comfort level with who they’re telling,” Gene Smith said. “We all know this is a sensitive issue so who and where does the athlete feel comfortable taking it?” But sports aren’t the only area in which OSU should be concerned with sexual abuse, Kennedy said.

At court, Meeks also confirmed that Berry was suspended by his positions coach, former running backs coach Dick Tressel, and not by former head coach Luke Fickell or new coach Urban Meyer. Wednesday’s pre-trial was the first meaningful discussion among those involved in the case, which is being continued because Berry’s defense is challenging his identification by the alleged victim. “The identification in the case, we think, is probably constitutionally faulty,” Meeks said in court. The identification of Berry by the alleged victim is not the only issue Berry’s defense is raising. “We are challenging, by a not-guilty plea, the alleged assault in this case,” Meeks said in court. Moving forward, Meeks said there is a 50-50 chance the case will go to trial. Tobias said it is not unusual for the case to be continued. “Upwards of 95 percent of the cases, somewhere between 90 to 95 percent do not get resolved in pre-trial.” Tobias told The Lantern.

Sheldon Kennedy, a former NHL player and abuse victim, is an advocate of anti-abuse education.

“The high-profile sports get exposed more than some of the other instances, but it’s very near and dear to my heart because I know the damage that this stuff has on our individuals that go through it,” Kennedy said. Kennedy said university officials must set the tone for creating transparent and clear reporting procedures. “When it comes down to it, most bystanders don’t know what the right thing is,” he said. “And it all comes down to leadership. If they know that the school and university officials are on board with a zero-tolerance policy around this stuff — they’re going to come forward. If the school hasn’t even recognized it, then nobody’s going to come forward.”

The next hearing is scheduled for March 8. Andrea Goldblum, director of OSU Student Conduct, is prohibited by law to talk about the handling of Berry’s case from a student eligibility perspective, but said the process is separate from the criminal justice system. “We do have an ability to charge students who are involved in all kinds of things under the code of student conduct, as long as it’s within our jurisdiction,” Goldblum told The Lantern in a phone interview. “But it’s not hand-in-hand that it’s automatic or paired with the criminal justice system.” Berry was suspended from the football team Nov. 2 after being charged with assault, battery and disorderly conduct. The charges were based on an incident that occurred at 2:20 a.m. on Oct. 21 in the Arena District in downtown Columbus, involving Berry and a Columbus State Community College student. On Dec. 27, Berry pleaded not guilty to the charges and jury time for the case was waived, according to court documents. In the incident, the plaintiff was “struck in the face with a closed fist,” according to the Columbus police report. The plaintiff was treated at the hospital following the incident for injuries to his head,

SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS face, neck, back and hand. He was also ruled as having a possible concussion and eye damage, said Edwin Hollern, the plaintiff’s attorney on Oct. 27. Hollern previously said the remedy for the incident is compensatory damages and punitive damages, asking each in excess of $25,000, according to court documents. On Sept. 28, Berry was involved in what an OSU police report described as an “assault” on another student. Berry was admitted and released from the OSU Medical Center and no charges were filed. In this incident, two males were witnessed “wrestling on the ground” in the South Oval, according to a police report. In 2009, Berry was arrested on a marijuana possession charge in Miami, Fla. Berry dressed for the Michigan State game on Oct. 1, the first game after his Sept. 28 incident. He was also dressed for the Wisconsin game on Oct. 29, the first game after he was named in a lawsuit for the second incident.

Sanford said she listens to audiobooks during longer shifts to make the time pass more quickly. “I try not to listen to anything too sappy because a lot of things are audible and everyone would be looking at me like, ‘That’s the crazy bus driver,’” Sanford said. Though Sanford admitted her road rage has gone up since she started, she likes the North Express route because of the traffic and it makes time pass more quickly. “Driving in circles gets boring to me,” she said. After almost 18 months behind the wheel, Sanford said some people still don’t believe that she drives buses. “I may not look like one,” Sanford said. “But I’m a bus driver.”

The 54th annual Grammy Awards is set to air at 8 p.m. Feb. 12 on CBS. The Lantern weighs in on who we think will win in the major categories. Album of the Year “21” – Adele “Wasting Light” – Foo Fighters “Born This Way” – Lady Gaga “Doo-Wops & Hooligans” – Bruno Mars “Loud” – Rihanna If Kanye West’s “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” received the nod it deserved in this category, this might be a little less of a no-brainer, but alas, it would take nothing short of a Hail Mary to stop Adele. “21” will win, and rightfully so – not only was it a critical darling, but a mammoth on the charts as well.

ALEX ANTONETZ / Arts editor VANESSA SPATES / Senior Lantern reporter MATT LOVETT / Lantern reporter

Best Pop Album “21” – Adele “The Lady Killer” – Cee Lo Green “Born This Way” – Lady Gaga “Doo-Wops & Hooligans” – Bruno Mars “Loud” – Rihanna My Album of the Year nomination will surely win this category. “21” goes outside of the standard pop box in which it’s placed.

Best Rock Album Song of the Year “All of the Lights” – Kanye West “The Cave” – Mumford & Sons “Grenade” – Bruno Mars “Holocene” – Bon Iver “Rolling in the Deep” – Adele The only reason I don’t think “Rolling in the Deep” wins here is because “All of the Lights” featured about 423 different artists, and those artists have Grammy votes.

Record of the Year “Rolling in the Deep” – Adele “Holocene” – Bon Iver “Grenade” – Bruno Mars “The Cave” – Mumford & Sons “Firework” – Katy Perry Save Bon Iver, Adele’s smash 2011 hit is not perturbing or shallow like the rest of the nominations. “Rolling in the Deep” represents so much more than a silly love song.

“Rock ‘N’ Roll Party Honoring Les Paul” – Jeff Beck “Wasting Light” – Foo Fighters “Come Around Sundown” – Kings of Leon “I’m With You” – Red Hot Chili Peppers “The Whole Love” – Wilco Foo Fighters remain consistent throughout all of their work, producing accessible yet hard rocking jams for all. Not to mention, all of the other Rock Album nominations were flops.

Best R&B Album “F.A.M.E.” – Chris Brown “Second Chance” – El DeBarge “Love Letter” – R. Kelly “Pieces of Me” – Ledisi “Kelly” – Kelly Price While woman-beaters don’t deserve second chances, the Grammys will most likely provide Chris Brown with this second chance for his mildly mediocre album just to show the world that he can still come out on top.

Best New Artist The Band Perry Bon Iver J. Cole Nicki Minaj Skrillex 2011 will forever be known as the year of dubstep all because of one newcomer who made his start in a “screamo” emo band. While not a “traditional” artist, Sonny Moore, aka Skrillex, does something that not everyone else can do and for that he’ll take home this award.

Best Rap Album CHRIS POCHE / Design editor


The 54th Grammy nominations


“Watch the Throne” – Jay-Z and Kanye West “Tha Carter IV” – Lil Wayne “Lasers” – Lupe Fiasco “Pink Friday” – Nicki Minaj “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” – Kanye West “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” is a transcendent album – not only was it a game-changing rap album, but it was also a masterfully crafted, introspective pop album as well. Barring voters splitting their votes between this and West’s “Watch the Throne” with Jay-Z, this is a no-brainer.

Best Alternative Music Album “Bon Iver” – Bon Iver “Codes and Keys” – Codes and Keys “Torches” – Foster the People “Circuital” – My Morning Jacket “The King of Limbs” – Radiohead “Torches” will win because it’s truly alternative and a bit confusing at times, but a little confusion works.

Best Country Album “My Kinda Party” – Jason Aldean “Chief” – Eric Church “Own the Night” – Lady Antebellum “Red River Blue” – Blake Shelton “Here for a Good Time” – George Strait “Speak Now” – Taylor Swift George “King of Country” Strait has yet another solid country album for 2011 here – one that will keep country’s worst fans from cringing too much.

Columbus’ Own

In an attempt to shine light on local music, The Lantern’s “Columbus’ Own” is a weekly series that will profile a new Columbus band every Thursday.

Ease the Medic skips easy street to fame KATIE HARRIMAN Lantern reporter






As a 15-year-old, performing for skinheads in New Jersey bars, Adam Thornburgh dreamt of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. As a guitarist for Columbusbased band Ease the Medic, Thornburgh, 38, said he is happy those dreams never came true. Thornburgh, along with fellow members, Mike Bryant, Mike Finch and Joe Estes, released Ease the Medic’s self-titled sophomore full-length album Feb. 7. Thornburgh said he gave up his dreams of a rock ’n’ roll lifestyle for his pregnant wife, two children and a day job as a production supervisor at ELK Promotions. “I used to think I would be selling out arenas by now, but I’m glad that never happened,” Thornburgh said. “I go home and do more work with a kid on my lap, and I still get to play music I want to play.” Ease the Medic formed in 2005 after each member had played in different bands but never found the right fit. Similar tastes in ‘80s “thrash metal and post-hardcore rock” lend to the band’s sound, which ranges from upbeat screams on the record “Meh,” to more deliberate, smooth harmonies on “Indian Style.” The members’ realistic goals of playing original music without false hopes of “making it big” made the band a success. “I think a lot of bands really try to write, not for themselves, but for other people,” Thornburgh said. “We all have careers, we’re all content with never getting a record deal, but we keep pushing hard for doing what we enjoy doing. There’s no pretensions that we’re going to be big one day, so we’re not trying to make ourselves appealing to everyone around us. We just want to make sure that at the end of the day, we’re happy with what we’re doing.”

Columbus-based band Ease the Medic released its 2nd full-length album, which was self-titled, Feb. 7. Ease the Medic has opened for Lynyrd Skynyrd, INXS, 3 Doors Down, and other big names, but it is just as content playing smaller shows, such as sweet 16 parties, graduation parties and backyard shows by car light. Bryant juggles work and family life with his role as drummer. He said he is proud the band has traveled to “every state east of the Mississippi.” “We really do a lot with the amount of time we’re able to put into it,” Bryant said. Bryant, 36, is a traffic supervisor for Time Warner Cable Media Sales. He said the band plans to continue to make original music until people stop listening. “I don’t see us stopping unless we get bored with it,” Bryant said. “I’ll do it forever.” Estes, 30, joined Ease the Medic in 2010 after the

original bassist, Eric Payton, moved to Germany to pursue a job in engineering. Estes said he was a fan of the band before he joined, and his role in Ease the Medic is the most challenging of his career. “When I joined this band, I had never touched a bass before in my life,” Estes said. “That was a big challenge. I never really knew the idea behind the bass.” Like Thornburgh, Estes played guitar as a young teenager and is perhaps the most musically versatile of the group. He plays electric guitar, synthesizer, violin, cello and “whatever has strings on it.” He also performs classical, jazz and rock, but has the most passion for metal, which stems from his “anger issues,” Estes said.

The painted trio performed for a near-full house at the Palace Theatre Tuesday as part of its interactive theatrical tour. Never having seen the Blue Man Group, I didn’t know what to expect. All I knew was there were going to be fluorescent paint and PVC pipes, but I didn’t realize how funny the show would be. Overall, the show was impressive as well as humorous. The audience, members of which ranged from children to the elderly, were almost constantly laughing at the antics the men in blue put on. The Blue Men showed off their artistic skills painting canvases by beating drums that were covered in paint, as well as spitting paint onto the canvases. Front row audience members were then given the few paintings that were made. Audience participation was a key element of the

show. The painted actors wove through the aisles looking for someone to help with the next scene: a very awkward date. The girl they chose went reluctantly on stage where there was a table set with four places. There, the men in blue tried impressing the hesitant assistant while keeping the audience in constant laughter. The unwilling date was not the only audience member brought to the stage. There was a man who was taken up and put into coveralls and a motorcycle helmet. From there he was led backstage by one member of the Blue Man Group. Front stage, there was a video feed that said “live back stage.” Audiences were led to believe that the volunteer was backstage, hung from his feet and thrown against a seven-foot canvas and splattered with paint. However, this act had some flaws. The audience member who was pulled on stage had very short hair that was completely covered by the helmet. The person in the backstage feed had hair poking out from the bottom of the helmet. Beside the hair issue, the timing was off, but

BIANCA BRIGGS Lantern reporter Misogyny and pornography can drive a woman to say a lot of things. This one chose 3-D digital simulation as her platform. Claudia Hart, working artist and curator and associate professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, will give a talk called “Beginning and End Games” focusing on her career in the industry of digital simulation at the Wexner Center for the Arts at 4 p.m. Thursday. Before Hart’s career expanded into the world of 3-D animation, she was an artist interested in photography and painting. When “Toy Story” was released in 1995, Hart was inspired to delve into the field of 3-D animation. “I thought it would change my life somehow, and I had this need to learn it,” Hart said. Her desire to learn the medium led her to New York University’s Center for Advanced Digital Applications, one of the only trade schools that taught media production at the time. Younger males dominated the field for the most part at first, and it hasn’t changed, she said. As a female artist at the age of 41, Hart was the odd one out in a culture of scientifically oriented males, she said. There was no artistic or creative approach taken to teaching the software and programming curriculum, it was taught in a much more meticulous and mathematic way. “I was in a hardcore engineering-geek culture,”

Hart said. “It was very much like a shop mentality — guys with toys.” Working in such a new and innovative field, Hart was surprised at the lack of cultural awareness. “(It was) extremely hardcore, extremely misogynistic and naïve from a cultural point of view,” Hart said. “I wasn’t used to being around people like that. (They were) very, very open to new technologies, but not new ideas.” Often work produced by fellow classmates depicted women pornographically, Hart said. Hart’s first art pieces in 3-D digital simulation were in response to this culture. “Dealing with the female body and eroticism and sexuality in a kind of confrontational way came from the fact that I was within a culture that the guys — they were making a lot of pornography,” Hart said. Hart said she has also been interested in exploring the concept of the natural and artificial worlds coalescing through media and biology. “Everything is becoming cyborg. Nature merges with culture. It’s hard to know what’s real and not real,” she said. One of her previous students, Shane Mecklenburger, is now an assistant professor of art at Ohio State. He said Hart is essentially using the medium as a “conceptual painter.” “There might be a couple of other artists dealing with the effect of mass marketed computer graphic installations of female identity. I’m not aware of that many,” Mecklenburger said. “(Her work is) not especially didactic, it’s open. It’s not only feminist screed.”

Group played music with PVC pipes, also played Gaga those weren’t the only flaws of the scene. When the original audience member was brought back to stage, the coveralls he had on were painted, but the paint was dry. This one misleading moment, though, did not take away from the rest of the show. From there, the Blue Man Group impressively played its famous PVC pipes. The group played its own music and pop songs, such as Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.” Through its musical approach, the painted men were able to incorporate humor and even a science

FeverHead is scheduled to host Stupid Cupid > the ALT-Valentine’s Day Art Party at 8 p.m. Feb. 11.

Party to celebrate stupid love, safe sex AMBER EVANS Lantern reporter While many couples scramble to restaurants this weekend to beat Tuesday’s Valentine’s Day crowd, the local artists of FeverHead will be celebrating the holiday in an alternative way. “Celebrating love is serious, it’s nice, it’s kind. You know, it’s a good part of our traditions,” said Nicole “CoCo” Loupe, the operator of FeverHead and the producer of the Stupid Cupid > ALT-Valentine’s Day Art Party. “But, I also think that kind of flipping it over and looking at how silly it can be, or how funny, or bewildering, or looking at it from different angles is quite, quite entertaining. And it’s also a great catalyst for making art because it’s the version of a mainstream idea,” she said. Located at 1199 Goodale Blvd., FeverHead is a warehouse and studio space open to all artists. Stupid Cupid will be held Saturday. Doors open at 8 p.m. and continuous programming will run until midnight or 1 a.m., Loupe said. “It’s not one of those events that you show up and it’s the same thing for four hours and you come and go,” Loupe said. “We have curated the entire night.” The first hour of the party is reserved for food, drinks, networking and viewing the displayed art.

B o w l i n g

g R e e n

Two-dimensional art of all sizes and mediums (except sculpture) that include oil, acrylic, textiles and photography will be showcased. The second hour begins with a dance and video concert followed by 30 minutes to review more of the exhibited work. The event will end with a live band and dance party. Separate from the music and video concert will be an ongoing interactive performance installation. “My friend Michael J. Morris is doing a cuddle installation,” Loupe said. “So he’s bringing a fullsize mattress into the gallery … and anybody who wants to can have a seven-minute cuddle with him.” Loupe opened FeverHead last August. Stupid Cupid will be its biggest event to date, she said. For the OSU alumna, the goal of FeverHead was to have a place where she, her friends and other local artists could come and exert their creativity outside of their full-time jobs and other commitments. Tickets for Stupid Cupid can be purchased at the door for $20. Early-bird tickets for $15 can be purchased online until midnight on Friday. Guests must be 18 or older.

“It’s really soothing to have a musical outlet because it takes your mind off everything else,” Estes said. “It’s an emotional release because you don’t have to think about anything. I get a lot more frustrated if I don’t have a guitar next to me.” Finch, lead singer, guitar player and corporate tax accountant for Big Lots, Inc., didn’t start playing guitar until he was 21. Like the others, Finch said he is content with the level of success they have found. “We’re at a point where we can make whatever music we want to make,” Finch said. “I’ve done everything I originally set out to do with this band. We just want to continue playing and gain a wider audience.” Finch, an OSU alumnus, said the music scene in Columbus has changed dramatically since he moved to the city in 1995. “There’s more coverage, more bands and the number of venues has doubled, if not tripled,” Finch said. “There are four or five shows on any given night in Columbus and most of them have a lot of people in attendance. That wasn’t always the case.” Finch said Columbus is a great central location because it is within driving distance to many big cities. He said the band’s success stems from playing in New York, Detroit and Chicago, without having to go on tour. “In three or four days, you can get a lot done,” Finch said. “I think a lot of bands make that mistake, like, ‘We’re releasing a record, we’re going to do a six-week tour.’ Good luck with that, most of your shows are going to suck and you’ll be burnt out two weeks in.” Estes is also in a Cleveland-based band.

said the music scene in Cleveland is uncomfortable compared to Columbus because bands tend to be more image-conscious. “Some bands are very new to trends — they have an attitude, and it almost makes you feel uncomfortable,” Estes said. “They don’t care about anything other than their image. There’s a whole lot less of that in Columbus. It makes it a lot more fun when you don’t have to deal with that.” Thornburgh said he is proud to be in a band with members who don’t try to be something they’re not. “Our image is that there really is no image,” Thornburgh said with a laugh. “There’s no makeup or special hair. We’re just regular guys who like to play music.” The music is written collectively, a process that Estes said is unique to any band he has been in. While Estes joined the band after “Ease the Medic” was recorded, he has already written new material with the band. Instead of each member writing different songs individually, or writing separate parts and putting them together, the band takes a more mathematical approach. “They don’t have a general structure for writing a song,” Estes said. “You don’t necessarily need a chorus, a pre-chorus or a verse. You just have all these notes and you come back to parts, pick up new parts, and at the end it all builds up to this big part. I like that because it’s even more of a challenge.” Finch said the slower writing process gives the music a less catchy, more deliberate sound. “We’re not an immediate band,” Finch said. “There’s a lot of music that is meant to catch your attention with a big chorus, but the idea is more to have things that people might not hear upon first listen, so they can hopefully hear something new the next time they hear it.” “Ease The Medic” is available on iTunes and in local record stores.

lesson on how the eye works. It was more interesting than any high school science class I’ve ever had. The Blue Men still had more audience participation in store. On the massive screen behind them, “rock concert movements” that everyone always knows were listed. Classic moves, such as “the one-arm fist pump,” were listed, as well as “raising the roof,” which the audience did on cue. Others were obviously meant as jokes that the Blue Man Group would attempt themselves, such as the “behind-the-head leg stretch,” or getting a closer look at the audience. The show ended by transforming the theater into a dance club, with the last rock movement meant for the audience to stand up and shake their “hind quarters,” as giant beach balls were thrown from the stage and bounced over the audience.

Then-junior shortstop Alicia Herron rounds 3rd base and heads for home during an OSU softball game against Illinois April 10, 2011, in Columbus, Ohio. OSU lost the game, 4-3.

Softball says ‘WTF’ on eve of 2012 season Lisa Barefield Lantern reporter After earning an unsatisfying 14-37 record last year, the Ohio State softball team has developed a new, inspirational motto as the 2012 season opens on Friday: “WTF.” “We’ve thrown that out a lot, with a more politically correct meaning than it usually has,” said coach Linda Kalafatis. “WTF,” an acronym for “worst to first,” is a catchphrase developed to motivate the team after a 2011 season that Kalafatis described as disappointing. “Defeat is the greatest motivator,” she said. The Buckeyes’ troubles began early in the 2011 campaign. Five starters, including Big Ten Freshman of the Year Melanie Nichols, had to be replaced due to season-ending injuries and graduation. Nichols, a pitcher, underwent

surgery on her right shoulder in July 2010. She played in six games the following year but sat out for the remainder of the season per doctors’ orders. Lindsay Bodeker, an OSU graduate and former pitcher, would have been a redshirt senior last year. Bodeker re-injured her right knee from damage done to her ACL in 2008 and did not return after graduating. “We were pretty challenged on the mound,” Kalafatis said. Megan Coletta, junior third baseman and co-captain, said she is looking for redemption this year. “After last season and everything we went through, we want to prove that just because you have one bad year, you can come back,” she said. Coletta said she hopes to lead her team by concentrating on the mental aspect of the game. “(The underclassmen) are fresh. They don’t understand how grueling it’s going to be mentally and physically,” she said. “That’s what the veterans are working on.”

The women of the OSU softball team have set goals of achieving Big Ten and World Series success, and after only one practice this week, they said they are excited to get started. “The team has been pretty focused,” Kalafatis said. “At times we didn’t look as sharp as we’d like, but the kids are ready to get out and play.” The Buckeyes finished last in Big Ten standings in 2011 with a record of 3-17, defeating Minnesota twice in a doubleheader in early April and Michigan State in May. With a “WTF” mentality, OSU will need to rally past every Big Ten opponent including No. 15-ranked Michigan. The Wolverines finished last season with a 53-6 record on their way to claiming the conference title. Senior shortstop Alicia Herron said she has her sights set on Michigan for the upcoming season. “With the way the Big Ten is set up, we play each team three times,” Herron said. “I keep saying ‘MX3,’ you

know, Michigan times three. Defeating Michigan would be huge.” Herron, also a co-captain, led the team offensively with several team bests. Nine home runs, 10-for-10 stolen bases, 39 runs scored and a .354 batting average in 2011 are just some of her accomplishments. The Buckeyes begin a long, 23-game stretch on the road on Friday when they travel to Clermont, Fla., to take on the University of Central Florida. The team will see Las Vegas, Nev., Cathedral City, Calif., Orlando, Fla., and Nashville, Tenn., before returning home to Buckeye Field on March 24. Herron said she is most looking forward to “going out with a bang” with a team that is short on words, but strong in spirit. “We are obviously a young team,” Herron said. “We have so many new players, but I think the experience will come once we start playing. The heart and everything is all there.”

Sheridan shakes Michigan roots for OSU Tyler Robinson Senior Lantern reporter As Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer went through the process of filling out his coaching staff, a common theme began to form. Whether by design or coincidence, almost all of the coaches on staff had Ohio roots, a history coaching at OSU or had worked with Meyer before. Bill Sheridan is the biggest exception. A Detroit native, Sheridan coached at Michigan for three years under Lloyd Carr. His son, Nick, played quarterback for Michigan from 2008-09. Many of Sheridan’s family and friends are Wolverine faithful. Despite his strong connection to Michigan, the

football tradition at OSU, coupled with Meyer’s success, made the Buckeyes an attractive destination, Sheridan said. “That combination was very, very appealing,” Sheridan said during an exclusive interview with The Lantern. As linebackers coach for the Miami Dolphins last season, Sheridan’s future was in doubt after coach Tony Sparano was fired in December. Sheridan began exploring other possible coaching options. When former OSU defensive backs coach Taver Johnson left the Buckeyes to become the assistant head coach and linebackers coach at Arkansas in January, Sheridan said he saw an opportunity in Columbus. In a Jan. 22 interview with The Lantern, Meyer seemed to suggest that Johnson left OSU because

of the new title he now has as a member of the Razorbacks’ staff. “I think anytime you start throwing titles around, I think that’s appealing to some people,” Meyer said. “(Johnson) had a very good relationship with a previous coach that was here … but the thing that made him go was to be the No. 2 in charge (at Arkansas).” Sheridan reached out to OSU strength coach Mickey Marotti and offensive line coach Ed Warinner, both former colleagues, to see if Meyer had interest in bringing him back to the college game after Johnson left. Meyer hired Sheridan as an assistant on Jan. 30, although without a specific role. Sheridan

Buckeyes men’s lacrosse looks to ‘win the conference’ in 2012 Patrick Maks Lantern reporter For the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team, it’s all about taking it one game at a time. Cliché as it might seem, with a schedule that includes defending national champion Virginia, and multiple other teams in the Nike/Inside Lacrosse Top 20 Poll, coach Nick Myers and his team said they have to. “I think for these guys, they understand,” Myers said. “We try to really make it about us.” But make no mistake about it — the Buckeyes want to win a championship. Senior captain defenseman Joe Bonanni said it’s important to strike a balance between the two, though. “Obviously championships are always the ultimate goal for the team, but we like to take it week to week, focus on our opponent at hand,” Bonanni said. Junior attackman Logan Schuss, who was OSU’s first true freshman honorable mention All-American

in 2010, said that while the expectation is to make the national tournament, they need to take it one game at a time. “We’re looking at to win the conference, right now. We don’t want to look anywhere past that,” he said. “You don’t want to count your chickens before they’re hatched.” OSU, who finished 2011 8-8 and 3-3 in the Eastern College Athletic Conference, open up the 2012 season against Detroit Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. The Buckeyes were voted fourth out of eight teams in the 2012 ECAC preseason poll behind Denver, Loyola and Fairfield. Myers said one of the greatest strengths of this team is the leadership of the upperclassmen. “I think this is a more experienced group that we’ve had than the last two years,” he said. “I think that’s something we’re going to rely on.” OSU returns 26 total letter winners, including six seniors and nine juniors.

OSU senior midfielder Eddie Bambino runs upfield in a lacrosse scrimmage against Bucknell Feb. 4 in the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. The Buckeyes will rely on a senior-laden defense led by Bonanni, Keenan Ochwat, and redshirt senior Matt Kawamato, who last season was the ECAC Defensive Player of the Year and an honorable mention All-American. Sophomore goalie Greg Dutton, who started 15 games last season, will look to build on a productive freshman season during

which he saved nearly 52 percent of shots taken against him. Myers and Schuss agreed that their defense will often anchor the team. “I think we’re going to need to ride them early, you know, while the offense kind of develops that chemistry,” Myers said. Offensively, as Schuss goes, so does OSU. The All-ECAC First-Team junior

had 32 goals and 20 assists in 2011 and said everyone is a threat on the Buckeye offense. “We’re young so we’re fast and we’re going to be able to put the ball in the back of the net,” he said. Along with Schuss, OSU’s offensive scheme will likely feature junior midfielder Dominique Alexander and

sophomore attackman Tyler Frederick. schuss also said throughout the offseason, the Buckeyes worked on improving their faceoff winning percentage, which was only about 48 percent last season. “Our faceoff was probably one of our weaker spots, we’re looking to get above 50,” he said. The more they can control the ball, the better the chance Osu’s attackmen have to score. Compared to last season, Bonanni said the Buckeyes have improved their attention to detail. “small things that sometimes, where you’re in

a tight game, if you’re not communicating, doing the small things, it can cost you in the end,” he said. “so we tried to tighten that up and did a pretty job doing that.” Myers said this is a team that understands its identity coming into the season and the level that they need to play in order to be successful. “it’s really developing that mold, that Buckeye lacrosse … how we want to play the game, the intensity, the energy, the enthusiasm that we want to bring,” he said. “i think the men have a really clear understanding of that.” Perhaps most importantly, though, Bonanni said the team’s energy is what might separate it from its competition. “We’re a team that sticks together, we feed off one another,” he said. “We’re a tough team.”



College from 1B

‘Sincere friends and family’ support Sheridan. confirmed to The Lantern Tuesday that he will serve as cornerbacks coach for the Buckeyes. he will make $200,000 in 2012. “(sheridan’s) experiences in the NFL are huge. he has Midwest roots and, most importantly, he wants to be an Ohio state Buckeye. i am really impressed with him and i think he is going to be a terrific addition to our defensive staff as a coach, teacher and as a recruiter.” in addition to Michigan, sheridan has coached at Michigan state and Notre dame, and acknowledged that his recruiting experience within the region will benefit the Buckeyes. “i do have, being born and raised in the Midwest and having coached in this conference at two other institutions as well as Notre dame, familiarity with not only the conference but more importantly the recruiting grounds that the majority of the conference recruits, whether Ohio or Michigan or that kind of stuff,” he said. sheridan has spent the last seven seasons in the NFL. along with coaching linebackers for the dolphins the past two seasons, sheridan served in the same capacity with the New york Giants from

2005-08, where he was a part of New york’s super Bowl victory in 2007. he was promoted to defensive coordinator prior to the 2009 season but was fired at the end of the year. his college coaching resume also includes work at army, Cincinnati and Maine. sheridan said coaching in the pros and coaching in college isn’t as different as many people perceive. “The game itself, it’s really not that different other than the age of the players,” he said. “having coached in the NFL for the last seven years, it’s just seven more years of coaching experience … i don’t think it would be dramatically different if i had coached in college for the seven years.” Perhaps sheridan’s biggest challenge in coming to Osu will be dealing with teasing from Michigan friends and family, including those closest to him. “My wife (Jaycine) was initially giving me a hard time, but it’s all in good fun,” sheridan said. “Obviously, my sincere friends and family are completely supportive of any professional move that i would have made. “i’m sure the ribbing and the kidding and the joking about it will go on for quite a while.” Pat Brennan contributed to this story.

Women’s ice hockey tries to make up ground vs. Gophers as conference playoffs approach nIck dVORScak Lantern reporter

Senior forward Laura McIntosh skates down the ice during a women’s ice hockey game against Bemidji State Oct. 8, 2011. OSU won, 5-3.


With just four games left in the regular season, the Ohio state women’s ice hockey team is fighting for position in the Western Collegiate hockey association standings. The team, tied for fourth place with the university of Minnesota-duluth, is hoping to separate itself from uMd in order to gain home-ice advantage for the conference playoffs. Coach Nate handrahan called the next few weeks a “hotly contested race” to get the last home ice advantage spot. Both teams have 38 points heading into this weekend’s conference matchups. senior forward Natalie spooner said Osu’s next four games are big.

“We’re striving right now for home-ice advantage,” spooner said. it won’t be easy for the team to pick up points in the four upcoming games. They host Minnesota this weekend at the Osu ice rink then travel to Wisconsin the following weekend to take on the Badgers. The first time Osu and Minnesota met, Osu dropped both games, 4-1, on dec. 10 and 11, 2011, respectively. “i know we want to get some wins this weekend against Minnesota,” said senior forward Laura Mcintosh. Wisconsin and Minnesota occupy the No. 1 and 2 spots in the standings, respectively. “The rest of the season, like i said, we have Minnesota and then Wisconsin, two highly ranked teams,” Mcintosh said. “i think we’re hoping to be consistent both days, both weekends, and pull out some big wins to get home ice.”

in the WCha playoffs, the top four teams receive home ice advantage. First place plays eighth place, second plays seventh, third plays sixth, and fourth plays fifth. Following the first round, the teams are again reseeded and advance to the WCha Final Face-Off. Osu will most likely be playing in the four versus five matchup in the first round; it’s just a matter of whether they get the higher seed. “it’s up to the other games,” Mcintosh said. “it looks like we’re going to play duluth in playoffs, but it’s whether it’s home or away.” uMd will host this year’s WCha Final Face-Off. Knocking uMd out of a tournament that they’re hosting is something Mcintosh said she wouldn’t mind doing. Visit to read the conclusion of this story.
