Taking advantage of a rare snow day at OSU, four student took to the “slopes” around Mirror Lake. Jonathan Harmon, a fourth-year in electrical and computer engineering major, sleds down a hill on the northeast side of Mirror Lake while his friends (from left to right), Brandon Bowditch, a third year in aerospace engineering, Todd Sleucher, a third year in mechanical engineering, and Jeremy Sharp, a fourth year in mechanical engineering, watch. “Its a nice day to have a break, come out and enjoy the weather,” Harmon said. “Yeah, I’m sick of being stuck in labs all day,” Sharp added.

After fourth snow day in a decade, and record-breaking month, OSU resumes class KEVIN SANCHEZ Lantern reporter After days of relentless snowfall, Ohio State canceled classes Tuesday because officials determined that conditions on and near campus were unsafe. Despite more snowfall Tuesday, OSU will resume classes today. However, parking for students will be tough today, the university said in an e-mail Tuesday. Lack of pavement lines, snow mounds and icy conditions will complicate driving and parking.

Highest Columbus snowfalls This winter is proving to be one of Columbus’s snowiest. Here are the top seven snowfalls by season, in inches.

OSU Emergency Management urges anyone having problems on campus today to contact the university’s service center at 292-HELP or service2facilities@ It has been an exceptionally snowy winter in Columbus. The 9.7 inches of snow that fell on Monday set a record for Feb. 15 snowfall in Columbus, shattering the previous record of 3.1 inches set in 2003. Through Tuesday afternoon, Columbus has recorded its second-highest monthly snowfall, with 25.4 inches so far in February, said Brian Coniglio, meteorologist for the National Weather Service.

Police arrest student linked to series of Morrill Tower thefts MICHELLE SULLIVAN Campus editor An Ohio State student has been charged with one count of burglary and is a suspect in several others after a series of thefts and burglaries in Morrill Tower. Brandon Monroe, 21, was arrested Feb. 3 by University Police and incarcerated in the Franklin County Jail for a burglary that occurred on Jan. 29. In that case, a 32-inch flat-screen TV, an Xbox 360 and a video game

were stolen from a Morrill Tower dorm room, according to a press release from OSU Police. Since September 2009, there have been 22 reported cases of burglary or theft, said Deputy Chief of Police Richard Mormon. The total value of stolen property is more than $10,000. “The liaison officer assigned to Morrill began noticing a trend,” Mormon said. He said they began piecing clues together and eventually identified Monroe as a suspect in the crimes. “There was enough probable cause to charge him with the one burglary,” he said.

Monroe was detained but has since posted bail. Officers searched Monroe’s residence on Jasonway Avenue on the city’s North Side and recovered more than $2,000 worth of property from six of the Morrill Tower burglaries. “We know he was selling some of the property on Craigslist,” Mormon said. He also said they believe Monroe sold stolen books to campusarea bookstores. “There is still property we want to recover,” Mormon said. Mormon said the police are uncertain how Monroe gained access to the dorm rooms. He said it is likely

Monroe followed residents in through the main lobby. “He actually lived in Morrill last year, so he knows his way around,” Mormon said. Once inside the building, Monroe could have easily gained access to common areas left unlocked by residents, Mormon said. Mormon said he urges students to keep their dorm rooms locked and valuable property secured. He also said to refrain from letting unknown people into residence halls. As far as the police know, Monroe was working alone. The case is still under investigation.

Alumna says she has easy solution to debt: Join a credit union

snow showers


Ohio State paid a $1.2 million settlement last week to the wife of a man who died from Legionnaires’ disease after drinking contaminated water in a building at the OSU Medical Center. David Morris was an outpatient on the ninth floor of Doan Hall in 2006, where he received a blood transfusion as part of his leukemia treatment. He drank water that came from a faucet contaminated with the bacteria. He was diagnosed with the disease less than a week later.

Five months after that, in April 2007, Morris died of Legionnaires’ disease. OSU acknowledged that the water was contaminated and that no one at Doan Hall warned patients 315 not to drink water from the faucets. “A variety of extraordinary safety measures have been implemented … including restrictions on the use of tap water for drinking purposes in areas with high-risk patients,” said David Crawford, a representative for the Medical Center, in an e-mail. “Legionella bacteria is a common risk in most older buildings with extensive plumbing systems, however,

With rising interest rates, it’s not uncommon for American credit card holders to quickly accumulate debts they can’t afford. For those who find themselves buried in debt, an Ohio State alumna can help. Jamie Chase, a 1999 graduate with a bachelor’s degree in communication, is a co-inventor of American Debt Relief Challenge, a program that has saved Americans a total of $20 million, Chase said. The ADR Challenge has accomplished these savings by simply transferring consumer debt from banks to credit unions.

Chase said a typical interest rate at a bank is 18 to 20 percent, while a credit union averages 6 to 12 percent. Credit unions can charge less interest because they are nonprofit. “Banks exist to make a profit,” Chase said. “Credit unions are more like libraries; they only exist to serve.” JAMIE CHASE She said credit unions are guided by a board of directors, all of whom are members of the community. “This means they are more willing to help people in the community whose house[s] might be facing

foreclosure, for example,” Chase said. “They only exist to make life better, and a lot of people don’t know that. Why would I choose to use a bank when a credit union does the same stuff?” In addition to her work in the U.S., Chase has gone overseas to explore the benefits of credit unions. In 2006, she went on a goodwill mission to Mali, West Africa. There she found credit unions improving the quality of life for young girls who would otherwise be forced to beg and sell their bodies to survive on their own. Chase said the girls were taken off the street and sent to attend the Here Je Development Center in

campus Web site features Buckeye fans as they travel, cheer DANIELLE HARTMAN Lantern reporter The O-H-I-O link on Ohio State’s home page has 4,373 photos of Buckeyes worldwide performing the signature cheer, and that number increases every day. There are so many photos, in fact, that when Ted Hattemer, the director of new media for University Communications, tried to pull them all up on his screen, his computer froze. “I’m never going to click on ‘view all’ again,” he said. He said the Web site, which is in its third year, was started because the university received so many e-mails from Buckeye fans around the world. It wasn’t until they received a picture of OSU student Nicholas Pavlik, who was deployed in Afghanistan, that they realized the project could be something special. “That’s when we thought there’s more here that we could do with it,” he said. The site now receives pictures of the cheer performed at weddings, family vacations, from students studying abroad or those just around the OSU campus. The photos “come in all hours of the day from all corners of the world,” Hattemer said. He wouldn’t expect anything else. “Ohio State has a lot of pride,” he said. “No other school has [a cheer] like it.” Since the Web site started tracking views in June 2008, it has received 6,960 picture views and about 1.5 million hits. “But that could be your grandma clicking on your picture 12 times in a row,” Hattemer said. He said every photograph typically gets about 12 views. Photos that are out of the ordinary can receive 1,000 views or more. Hattemer said he receives help monitoring the pictures from three other staff members and two interns. Other than that, he said the Web site pretty much runs itself. “We just check the resolution and make sure they entered the right keywords for the picture, then just click enter,” Hattemer said. The Web site will soon offer a free iPhone

application that will make uploading pictures even easier. The application will allow users to access their iPhone camera and upload an O-H-I-O picture directly to the Web site. “We want to automate it as much as we can and make it convenient,” he said. Michael Simmons, a 2009 graduate of OSU, submitted a picture to the Web site featuring himself and friends in the Ecuadorian Andes at the Incan ruins during a trip for Habitat for Humanity. “We decided to do the O-H-I-O because we were all Ohio State students, and we all had, and still have, lots of pride in our school,” Simmons said. Simmons decided to upload the picture to the Web site because pictures he added in the past were used for an OSU commercial, which aired nationally during OSU football games. “To be honest I decided to add the picture to the Web site mostly because I had been on the commercial before so I thought that maybe I could get on another one,” Simmons said. Hattemer said that in addition to the pictures being used on the OSU commercial, he often supplies OSU faculty with the images to be shown at conferences. “It captures people’s attention in an interesting way,” Hattemer said. Timothy Mazik, a student in finance, took an O-H-I-O picture while on Contingency Operating Base Speicher in Tikrit, Iraq. His photo is one of 98 military photos on the Web site. “We took the photo because it was something we all wanted to do,” Mazik said. “We were sitting around one day and thought it would be a good idea, as we are all huge Ohio State fans.” Mazik said he heard about the site through his father. “Him and his buddies took an O-H-I-O photo in Sedona, Arizona, on a trip to the national championship game in Phoenix,” he said. “He encouraged me to upload it to the site.” Because Hattemer monitors the Web site, he sees just about all the pictures that are uploaded. He might have a couple of favorites, but he is especially partial to one. “I’m in there somewhere,” he said. “So that’s probably my favorite.” Visit the Web site at

Snow from 1A

Black Eyed Peas

still performed at the Schott on Tuesday

The record for February snowfall is 29.2 inches, set in 1910. January 1978 saw 34.4 inches, which is the record for most snow in a month, Coniglio said. A total of 45.2 inches of snow has blanketed the city this season, the seventh-highest mark recorded by the National Weather Service. The record for a season in Columbus — between July 1 and June 30 — is 67.8 inches, set in 1910. OSU Emergency Management sent an e-mail to students, staff and faculty before 6 a.m. Tuesday announcing that classes were canceled. “Not all employees were told to stay home,” Shelly Hoffman, assistant vice president for media relations, said in an e-mail. “Those deemed essential (public safety, Med Center, residence halls, food service, etc.)” were expected to work Tuesday. OSU has canceled classes only four times in the last 10 years, with the most recent closing in January 2009, she said. “Ohio State never shuts down,” Hoffman said. “We have only canceled classes and some activities.” President E. Gordon Gee made the decision to cancel classes after consulting with other university officials. The fact that Franklin County early Tuesday declared a “level two” snow emergency was a significant factor in the decision, Hoffman said. The OSU Medical Center remained open, as well as residence halls and public safety departments, according to OSU Emergency Management. “Decisions like this are made based on road conditions and travel conditions for faculty, staff and students,” said Bob Armstrong, director of Emergency Management. “It’s been difficult for the road crews around the city and on campus to keep up with snow removal,” Armstrong said. Conditions have certainly been adverse for drivers on- and off-campus, as evidenced by a pileup involving more than 40 vehicles that shut down 20 miles of Interstate 71 on Monday. No one was seriously injured in the incident. Events at the Wexner Center for the Arts were canceled, and the Younkin Success Center was closed for the day.

we feel the risk of contracting the disease is extremely low due to the safeguards we have in place.” In the lawsuit Morris’ wife, Sharon, said that the staff at Doan Hall knew the water was contaminated and provided bottled water to patients, but were instructed not to inform patients of the danger.

Snowfall by month The highest seasonal snowfall on record for the city of Columbus was in 1909-1910, when the city received 67.9 inches. This season, particularly the month of February, has seen almost as much snowfall as 1910. The record high for snowfall in a single month was set in January 1978.

Despite the storm, some OSU events went on as planned. The Black Eyed Peas concert at the Schottenstein Center Tuesday night went on as scheduled. Workout facilities such as the RPAC and the Adventure Recreation Center remained open. The Science and Engineering Library was the only library open on campus Tuesday. Campus dining options were limited as well, with Oxley’s by the Numbers Cafe and the Pizza At the Drake restaurant both closed Tuesday. “The P.A.D. is closed because the university is closed, and the P.A.D. is primarily run by students,” said Diana Mitchell, assistant manager at the pizza restaurant. However, many other dining locations remained open, including MarketPlace, Mirror Lake Creamery, North Commons and Kennedy Commons. The final decision to cancel classes is made by OSU President E. Gordon Gee, with recommendations from departments around campus. The OSU Newark Campus was the only regional campus closed Tuesday. The Marion, Lima, Mansfield and Wooster campuses remained open.

“We feel that the settlement is fair and helps to compensate the Morris family for the loss of their loved one,” Crawford said. David Shroyer, the attorney for Sharron Morris, said his client also feels the outcome of the lawsuit is fair. “Obviously she can’t ever be completely satisfied with what happened,” he said. “But she had two goals: one is to try to get the word out that there was a problem there … and two was for a settlement.”

says alumna who works to lower peoples’ debt Mali, where they received training in traditional African arts. After graduation, the girls were given loans by a Mali credit union so they could create their own businesses. “Credit unions are meant to reduce poverty,” Chase said. “They break that cycle.” Chase said a lot of people don’t know the benefits of credit unions. This means they can easily be misled by banks. “You made the choice to spend the money,” she said. “But it’s really unfair how banks entice consumers in with 0 percent starting interest.” In an effort to spread awareness about personal finances, Chase, also a previous PBS producer, played a big part in starting PBS’s “BizKid$,” a show geared toward children that features children with their own businesses. The show demonstrates how the children manage the money they earn through their businesses. The show is produced by the same people who were behind “Bill Nye the Science Guy.” Chase said the goal for “BizKid$” is to “create the same level of awareness about finances as ‘Bill Nye the Science Guy’ created for science.” Chase said the show isn’t allowed to directly mention credit unions to children viewers, but they decided to completely fund the show to spread general financial awareness. In addition to these accomplishments, Chase owns her own

business, called Credit Union Strategic Planning. She said her official job title is “principle instigator of goodness.” Her job title is a direct reflection of her personal mission statement, she said. “Find your life’s purpose. The thing that led me to this wasn’t trying to make the most money. My life purpose is to help people. That’s why I have a job title like instigator of goodness.” Chase, a third-generation OSU graduate, said she credits OSU with helping her learn how she could create her own path in life. She said she remembers being in lecture halls full of people and found it amazing that she could still receive personal help from her professors. “Ohio State taught me life is what you make of it,” she said. Chase said that she is dyslexic and is still grateful toward her academic adviser, Larry Greenfield, who she said helped her tackle college. Chase even said that dyslexia has helped her career. “We have a different way of looking at things and that is really helpful in inventing things,” she said. Her uncle, who also had dyslexia, was the lead inventor of the ATM. Chase said he served as a mentor in her life. For college students looking for financial advice, Chase said to simply avoid credit cards. “More college students drop out of college due to credit card debt than failing grades,” she said. “When people offer you a credit card they are doing you no favor.” For more information on the ADR Challenge, visit To find the nearest credit union, visit

student voice Anonymity: Who holds them accountable? EDITOR in Chief

Last week, Web site comments came to the forefront of news. Virginia Tech’s Commission on Student Affairs decided that anonymous Web comments should not be allowed because they are harmful to the community. They threatenedto cut funding and advertising for the college paper, The Collegiate Times, if they did not comply with their decision. I understand the concern of their students and faculty. The comment section of most news media cites is ugly. Anonymity allows people to say whatever they want, and hurt whoever they want, without being held accountable for their actions. I would like to assume that people are responsible enough to be able to handle the freedom of anonymity, but the reality is that people aren’t. Sometimes, what people say about each other and articles is a borderline hate crime. everdeen mason Here is where college newspapers run into a dilemma. Monitoring a Web site for comments brings up several issues. • Resources: Reading and monitoring comments is a full-time job by itself. Oftentimes, college papers don’t have the money to hire someone else, and the current staff don’t have the time to add it to their job description. • What is the line between insensitive comments, offensive comments and a hate crime? People can be offended by almost anything. • Freedom of speech: By removing someone’s comment from the Web, is that censorship? Have we violated First Amendment rights? Normally I’d argue that people should be allowed to say whatever they want

and be prepared to face the consequences of what they say. However, anonymity creates a strange conundrum. People don’t have to suffer the consequences for what they say anymore. • Is it in our best interest to pull anonymous comments from the Web? It isn’t. One of the beautiful things about the Web is that it is all-inclusive. The stories and their comments section create a network of people who can talk to each other. It also allows for the audience to tell newspapers what they want. On a sad note, people also like to read the horrible crap people spew in the comments section. I’m guilty of it as well. The Lantern does have a policy regarding comments.

Predictions lack credibility, facts

Using snow to further political goals LANTERN Columnist

As if it were not awful enough that Washington, D.C., was hit by one of the worst snowstorms in recent history, it is even more disgraceful to witness our nation’s elected leaders using the emergency as one more opportunity to gain political leverage. Last week Sen. Jim DeMint made a cheap jab maurice arisso at Nobel Prize recipient and former Vice President Al Gore, saying “it’s going to keep snowing in Washington, D.C., until Al Gore cries uncle.” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell also chimed in, asking “Where’s Al Gore now?” Thousands without power, D.C. at a complete standstill and under a state of emergency, roads closed in all directions, and all the while Sen. James Inhofe took the day off to build an igloo with his family on the National Mall, christening it as “Al Gore’s new home.” What a class act. You have to admit that Inhofe is old-school. This is the guy who has brazenly referred to global warming as a “hoax” and on more than one occasion, but if he really has to go there and mock Gore, why do it in such a deliberately insensitive manner? If anything, this speaks volumes of the integrity of some of our nation’s elected leaders. These senators are the same individuals that take millions of dollars in “donations” from big oil interests and use those petro-dollars to fund their own lavish “think tanks.” The level of irresponsibility that these charlatans exhibit would leave most anyone completely appalled. Even worse, the level of coldness and sarcasm displayed by the likes of DeMint, McConnell and Inhofe are downright offensive and embarrassing to the American people. They do not even attempt to hide the fact that they are deep in the choke hold of big oil’s even bigger wallet. They sure love their Benjamins.

It seems like these people have their own bat-signal or something, because when one rants and raves, then the rest come out of the woodwork with swords in hand. It’s always the same cast of sordid characters: Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh. Even Donald Trump had to get his two cents in this time around, claiming that Gore should have his Nobel Peace Prize stripped from his hands, merely because it snowed too much for the Trump’s liking. A virtual who’s who of conservative talking heads quickly jumped on the bandwagon and used the occasion to spew even more inflammatory rhetoric into the media. Case in point is Fox News pundit Hannity, who continues to scare his viewers with false information, including his bold claim that global warming is a conspiracy. “It’s the most severe winter storm in years, which would seem to contradict Al Gore’s hysterical global warming theories,” Hannity said. Yes, Sean, sometimes it does snow right in the middle of February. You know that Sarah Palin also had to speak her piece and claimed during a recent speech that the evidence for global warming is nothing more than a “bunch of snake oil science.” The problem with these irresponsible people is that their remarks are rooted in sarcasm, hearsay and nothing more. Facts and figures are optional. Even after the scientific community has determined that global warming is fact, these charlatans continue to live in their own self-contained fantasy worlds. These are probably the same type of people who refuse to believe that primates are our distant relatives and instead believe theories that the world was created 6,000 years ago when man roamed the planet atop a triceratops. They never need any scientific evidence for their shallow theories, but if it snows in the middle of February ,then Al Gore must be put through the Spanish Inquisition. After countless studies have been conducted across the globe and scientists are in agreement that global climate change is absolute fact, these charlatans right here at home continue to spin the issue on its head infinitely, so as to cover their tracks and continue to fiercely protect ulterior motives.

Gregg Easterbrook, author of the popular ESPN column “Tuesday Morning Quarterback,” has a saying: “All predictions wrong or your money back.” Political pundits, economists, social scientists and other fortune tellers should take note. If there is one thing the media loves it is bold predictions of the future from so-called experts. They like it even more if these predictions are as horrifying as possible, never mind their relationship to reality. Predictions themselves are harmless. It is when they are reported as fact that they become dangerous. These predictions usually fall into two categories. They are the too-many-variables-to-ever-knowwhat-is-going-on prediction and the completely-outof-my-ass-but-can’t-be-disproved prediction. The first type is the favorite of the social sciences. Economists will often be asked to project future economic growth or other statistics, such as the unemployment rate. The criteria on calculating these statistics are so subjective that the predictions end up all over the map. While these guesses can be helpful in understanding general trends, they are just guesses based heavily on personal opinion. Just think back to how many economists got the financial crisis and the aftermath correct. There are countless other examples. Social scientists too often just repeat fads or data that is missing key variables. This has lead to arguments that more prisons equal more crime and other politically charged statements. While both sides have valid arguments, they are not facts any more than the economic guesses. Even more detached from reality are the guesses that don’t even pretend to be based on science (though one could argue that the pseudo-science is more harmful because people fall for the math). These are things such as guesses at the probability of a terrorist attack or declaring that in 10 years global warming will have passed a critical point of no return. Despite the absolute lack of credibility, these guesses are predictions that are often repeated in the media as if they carry weight. The media doesn’t say that Dick Cheney doesn’t know the chance of an attack or that the statement “carbon output must be cut 50 percent or we all die” is based on no facts whatsoever. Instead, they are passed on to the American public as expert truth. These predictions are harmful when they are used as the basis for policies or decisions. Now-discredited economic theories about risk were a major factor in the financial crisis. An unreasonable fear of terrorism and environmental disaster has led to expensive and overbearing legislation. Instead of spreading panic about innumerable future disasters, we would be better off accepting that we just don’t know what is going to happen.

OSU uses outdated, boring lecture methods, should use modern technology

I had a revelation last week. Perhaps it was because of the extremely cold temperature coupled with the complete and utter lack of any snow days. Or, perhaps it was because I was getting a simple epiphany. The fact of the matter is that I found out Wednesday morning that I wasn’t going to plan making the trek into the blizzard outside, no matter what. I assure you it wasn’t out of any form of laziness; I just measured the extra measures I would have to go through (longer walk-time, thicker coat, navigating through the feet of snow banks scattered through the off-campus area) and decided that all that just wasn’t worth it to sit in on one 48-minute lecture. I ended up just staying home, catching up with the materials I found online. This signaled something much deeper, however, and made me question how our educational system works. For as long as I can remember, we’ve been educated simply by sitting in chairs in front of some board hearing a lecturer drone on and on. The only factors that have changed are the desk types, whether we have a blackboard or whiteboard, and the general aptitude of the lecturer. This model of learning has been the de facto standard for hundreds (if not thousands) of years). If you were to time warp a teacher from centuries past into our 21st century classroom, they could hit the ground running with virtually no adjustment to their teaching style. That’s disturbing. If I remember correctly, however, the most exciting classes (for everyone) were the ones

where the teacher veered off of the material, focusing not on lecturing but on interactivity — a concept we’re deeply missing nowadays. Shmuel Meitar, a famous enigmatic Israeli entrepreneur, agrees. He recently financed a company out of his own pocket, to the tune of $60 million, to tackle this problem head-on. The compnay, Time To Know, is attempting to completely advance our educational system, starting with kindergarten, making our system more relevant and interactive. If you look at your classes this week, you’ll probably see the same thing. How many people, out of the total students enrolled, are even there? Of those, how many are actually paying attention and not just doodling or staring at their computer? And who can really blame them? Many lectures are given to a huge number of students and are presented in an uninteresting manner. I can’t claim to know exactly how we should solve this problem, but clearly we have to use our technological prowess to make our courses more relevant, engaging, interactive and unique to each student. We have to take a strong step in the right direction as soon as humanly possible to guarantee that all our students get what they need out of college. Today’s students are different. In this global age where we’re inundated with social media and technology, a centuries-old teaching style just isn’t going to cut it.

Student creates site that tracks CABS buses for mobiles

5am McHenry

MICHAEL TOBIN Lantern reporter An Ohio State student says he has made the process of checking for campus area buses both simpler and faster. Fifth-year computer science engineering student Patrick Shuff created, which provides CABS times and locations in a format written specifically for mobile devices. CABS recently launched an official Web site that tracks the buses in real time and gives arrival estimates, but Shuff said it isn’t suited for handheld devices. “The official CABS Web site was made more for desktops and doesn’t show up well on mobile devices,” Shuff said. “Mine is made for a screen the size of an iPhone.” Shuff uses the same information from the official CABS Web site on his site. A server processes the information for Shuff’s site, which means that mobile devices don’t have to — making mobile downloads faster. Processing isn’t an issue on a desktop because it has the capacity to handle it, Shuff said. The Web site was designed for the Apple iPhone and Verizon Droid but has worked on every other type of phone that used it, Shuff said. “I use the Web site on my Palm Pre because it is easier to see and gets me the bus times faster,” said Jason Motz, a fifth-year in computer science engineering. The Web site started as a personal project for Shuff and launched as a public Web site in autumn when more people started to use it. Shuff’s site now receives 50 to 60 hits per day. The site is unaffiliated with the OSU Department of Transportation, but Shuff has spoken with officials about his site. “The CABS people know about it,” Shuff said. “They just don’t want anything to do with it.”

conference titans Since a Jan. 12 meeting in West Lafayette, Ind., both the Buckeyes and Boilermakers have caught fire, each losing just once since the OSU victory.

My, how things have changed. The last time the Ohio State men’s basketball team played Purdue, the Buckeyes were fighting to sustain what seemed like long-shot Big Ten championship hopes. The Buckeyes arrived in West Lafayette, Ind., at 1-3 in conference play. With four minutes remaining in the game, OSU was down 10 and facing the virtual death sentence of a 1-4 conference record. But the Buckeyes had other plans. They ended the game on an 18-4 run and stole a season-saving road win. It was the start of a nine-game, in-conference win streak that has left the Buckeyes tied with Michigan State for first place in the Big Ten. A month later, OSU (20-6, 10-3) and Purdue (21-3, 9-3) meet tonight at the Schottenstein Center in a game with heavy Big Ten title implications.

Bucks rely on outfield of dreams joshua a. davidson Lantern reporter As the Ohio State baseball team prepares to head to Jacksonville, Fla., where they open play Friday, all eyes are on the outfield. Senior Zach Hurley thrives off the pressure and the chance to lead the defending Big Ten champions. “We live off that.

the big games and clutch situations. We know how to handle ourselves and that’s expected of us.” Hurley will patrol left field for the Buckeyes this season. In his first three seasons with the Scarlet and Gray, Hurley has produced sparkling offensive numbers. The co-captain will look to build on his career .320 average, and assistant coach Eric Parker thinks the senior is capable of doing just that. “He, like a lot of the other guys, works incredibly hard. He comes with effort every day and in baseball that’s a big part of it,” Parker said. “It’s a long

year. Being able to get up every day and know the grind of it is big, and Zach is one of the guys who does it best.” Center field duties will be split this year between seniors Michael Stephens and Chris Griffin. But having a surplus of talent in the outfield certainly isn’t bothering coach Bob Todd. “That’s a plus for us,” Todd said of having two talented center fielders. “Michael Stephens was our center fielder last year but Chris Griffin has worked very hard and has really

michael duchesne Sometimes you just have to get away from it all. As the snow continues to pile up all around us, never is the need to escape one’s gloomy surroundings more conspicuous. Birds and those with the time and means have already wisely departed for warmer climes. The Columbus Blue Jackets can walk proudly into their Olympic break, owners of a 3-1-1 record since the firing of coach Ken Hitchcock. Of those Jackets not reporting to their respective Olympic teams at the 2010 Vancouver Games, many talked of tropical vacation destinations during their time away. But for those on the coaching staff and in the front office left behind in a snowed-under Nationwide Arena, or traveling to small Canadian towns scouring tiny ice rinks for their next young talent, there is still a lot of work being done. Many questions hang over the organization as they enter the two-week hiatus. Foremost in the minds of most Jackets fans is whether or not this team has a shot of earning its second straight playoff berth after having dug an early grave for themselves in the first two-thirds of the season. Their better play of late has stoked a level of excitement amongst fans and those around the organization, rekindling a sense of hope that may be as fleeting as our dreams of an early spring. The metaphorical mountain the Jackets must climb to reach the playoffs at the summit is daunting indeed. They currently sit nine points behind eighth-place Calgary in the playoff hunt. Most believe it would take victories in at least 15 of the remaining 19 games to even have a shot. That’s a pretty tall order for a young team who just two weeks ago seemed to have been already thinking about those Caribbean escapes.

Training day: Gibson, Buckeye seniors prepare for NFL Draft doug dilillo Lantern reporter The senior leaders on the Ohio State football team ended their careers at OSU with a triumphant Rose Bowl win, but their work isn’t over. Several of the top seniors and junior Thaddeus Gibson have spent their time after the bowl victory not by celebrating but by preparing for the next step of their football careers. The process of moving from college football to the NFL involves intense training to prepare for the NFL Combine and Ohio State Pro Day. The tests given at these events measures the intangibles that NFL teams want their players to possess: Speed, agility, strength, physical attributes and reaction time, mental reasoning and character are all tested in one way or another. For the Buckeyes, the training can be a time to prove they are prepared for the next level, but it is also different than how they prepared in their time at OSU thus far. Some of the players said the things they do now to get ready are a bit unorthodox compared to the football training they were used to, but they must do everything they can to better themselves. “They always say you’re training to be a football player when you’re at Ohio State and you’re training to be a track star when you’re training for the Combine, but then you go back to football,” linebacker Austin Spitler said. “Its kind of hard to understand sometimes because you’re not really showcasing your football abilities. But its something that’s

sports No-hitter hurler anchors OSU staff grant freking Lantern reporter Pitching. It’s a common denominator in baseball. Everyone from high school coaches around the country to major league managers often claim pitching as the No. 1 reason why they’re succeeding or failing. The Ohio State baseball team is no exception. While the Buckeyes appear to have a strong, balanced lineup and an athletic team in the field, questions surround the pitching staff. OSU returns its top two starters and top setup man, but doubts remain regarding the rest the Buckeye pitchers. Of course, OSU has one pitcher they can rely upon. The numbers junior righthander Alex Wimmers put up last season were quite remarkable. The 2009 first-team All-American and Big Ten co-Pitcher of the Year went 9-2 and led the Big Ten with 136 strikeouts last season. Wimmers held batters to a .211 batting average and opposing batters hit a measly .193 against him with two outs. Furthermore, on May 2 against Michigan, Wimmers fanned 14 Wolverines and threw the first nine-inning no-hitter in the 125-year history of OSU baseball. Wimmers worked hard in the offseason to prepare to shoulder the load again for the Buckeyes. “Conditioning-wise, I improved my stamina, I worked hard in the weight room,” said Wimmers, a projected firstround pick in June’s MLB draft. “What I like to do is to put a lot of pressure on myself in carrying this team. I do the best I can and try to stay in there as long as I can on Friday nights to set the pitching for the rest of the weekend.”

The 2010 preseason All-American and undisputed staff ace has some lofty goals for the upcoming season. “I want to repeat as [Big Ten] Pitcher of Year. I’d like to lead the country in strikeouts if I can,” Wimmers said. “I want to limit my walks and have an ERA under three.” Coach Bob Todd, in his 22nd year coaching the Buckeyes, admits he might have to rely a bit more on Wimmers this season given the pitching staff’s uncertainty. “We’ve talked about that. We’re never going to do anything to hurt him. He’s got too much of a bright future,” Todd said. “If we can nurse an extra inning or so out of him, we’re certainly going to do it. It’s all going to depend on pitch counts, especially earlier in the season.” Anchoring the No. 2 spot in the rotation is junior Dean Wolosiansky. The 6-foot-5-inch, 225 pound right-hander went 11-2 last season with an ERA of 6.04. However, Wolosiansky is 12-2 in his career in conference play and has shown a knack for escaping trouble, as he induced 14 double plays last year. The Buckeyes lost a big piece of their bullpen from last season with the departure of senior closer Jake Hale. A first-team All-American who was drafted in the 27th round of last June’s draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks, Hale saved 18 games last year for OSU. Hale also had an ERA of 1.31 and struck out 67 in 55 innings pitched. For now, Hale’s replacement will be right-hander Drew Rucinski. Last season, the junior led OSU with 12 wins and was second in the Big Ten in appearances. Todd thinks Rucinski could contribute in a number of roles. “For the first couple of weeks he is going to be our closer, [however] at some point in time

Pitcher Alex Wimmers tossed a no-hitter against Michigan last season. he might be our No.3 starter.” Todd said. “We used him as our setup guy last year, so he’s really been flexible. We feel comfortable wherever we put him.” The team might also have to rely on younger players to eat up innings during the season. Brett McKinney, a freshman righthander from Hamilton, Ohio, who impressed coaches during

last fall’s Scarlet and Gray World Series, might see substantial action early in the season. “McKinney is going to be the key.” Todd said. “You never know what you’re going to get out of freshmen, but what he showed us in the fall is that he is going to have a chance to contribute and contribute quickly.”

Over the years, Ohio State has seen many talented coaches turn teams into national powerhouses. One man who has made OSU his home away from home is baseball manager Bob Todd. Todd began coaching the Buckeyes in the 1988-89 season and hasn’t left. Since his appearance in Columbus, Todd has become the winningest coach in the history of the program — the oldest varsity sport in OSU history. This longevity will allow Todd to join a selective group. With three more wins, Todd will be the 41st coach to win 1,000 games in the history of college baseball. Todd has guided the Buckeyes to a winning record every season. “This just shows I have had some talented players,” he said. Todd may have been trying to be modest by giving his players credit, but every year players find themselves with postseason awards. Todd has had numerous players win Freshman of the Year, Big Ten Player of the Year, Big Ten Pitcher of the Year and so on. Todd’s most recent standout pitcher is junior Alex Wimmers. Last year, Wimmers threw the first nine-inning no-hitter in OSU history against Michigan. “It would be a great honor to be on the field to get [Todd’s] 1,000 win,” Wimmers said.

bob todd Todd’s teams haven’t always been great but they find ways to shine. In 1991, Todd’s fourth season, the team set a school record with 52 wins and made it to the NCAA Tournament. In 2002, the Buckeyes had to win 15 of the last 17 games just to make it into the Big Ten Tournament. Once in the tournament, they won four of five games to win the tournament and secure a berth in the NCAA Tournament. Todd has also produced players to go on and play professional baseball. Just this year former Buckeye great Nick Swisher was celebrating a World Series title with the New York Yankees. In 1999, OSU was one of two northern schools to host an NCAA regional. That same year OSU found itself one game away from the College World Series before getting knocked out. The Buckeyes start their season this Friday, looking to defend their Big Ten regular season title.

Buckeyes target College World Series for season goal

improved the last two years. He’s going to get some opportunities to play because he’s earned it.” Stephens, who saw his first action as a Buckeye last season after transferring from Fullerton College, will still see plenty of time in the outfield. He led the Buckeyes in home runs with 14 and runs batted in with 63 last season. The athletic Griffin can play all three outfield positions and consequently might see time in right field as well. In right, he will share time with Brian DeLucia, who missed most of last season with a broken finger. DeLucia converted from third base last year and worked in the outfield last spring and in fall ball. He’ll switch places with Ryan Dew, who heads to the infield this season. Their switch provides the Buckeyes with some versatility at the plate. “They give us some flexibility both right-handed and lefthanded,” Todd said. “That way we can match up a little better against pitching.” There is some concern about whether or not DeLucia will be able to return to the offensive player he was after switching positions and returning from an injury. However, Parker has no doubt DeLucia will make a seamless transition and be productive for the Buckeyes this season. “Last year he had the advantage of the medical redshirt. He was able to get out there a lot during batting practice and get his feet wet and get familiar with the outfield,” Parker said. “He’s working hard every day with the other guys. It also helps you’ve got a veteran crew out there with him that can help him out.” The star-studded outfield is one of many veteran areas for the Buckeyes this year, which has Todd excited about the talent he has on the roster. “We really don’t have as much depth as we’d like. But when you take a look at the nine or 10 people we’re going to put out there on a daily basis, you have to like them,” Todd said. “They are experienced and they understand what it takes to compete at this level. I like the talent level we have.” The outfield is one area the Buckeyes do posses great depth, as three underclassmen are in line to back up the top four. Redshirt sophomore David Corna, who saw his first action as a Buckeye last season, is alongside freshmen Joe Ciamacco and Hunter Mayfield. The trio will battle to see action in the outfield this season. With the Buckeyes returning a veteran squad, and especially as defending Big Ten champions, expectations are high within the ball club as they enter the season. “With the experience we have back, and having won the Big Ten this year, we obviously should be up there and compete for the title,” Parker said. But Hurley is aiming even higher than a conference championship. “That’s something we’re trying to establish every year is win the Big Ten. That should be a given for us,” Hurley said. “We set out some goals this year and the main one is Omaha.” Omaha, Neb., is where the College World Series is held every year and where the Buckeyes plan to be come June.

Hummel torched the OSU 1-3-1 zone for 29 first-half points. It was not until coach Thad Matta assigned junior David Lighty to shadow Hummel that the Buckeyes were able to slow him down. As they have done all season, OSU will likely employ both zone and man-to-man defenses tonight, but their ability to stop Hummel will be crucial. “He’s a blue collar-type kid and he’s a great leader,” junior Evan Turner said of Hummel. “He can walk the walk and really set the tone for Purdue. He plays hard and he plays with a passion.” A Buckeye win would allow them to keep pace with Michigan State and keep their conference title hopes alive. Although most OSU fans will keep a close eye on the Spartans in the home stretch of the season, Matta said his focus is and always had been squarely on his team. “You’ve got to keep your focus on you,” Matta said. “I’ve been fortunate with some conference championships and my mind


has always been the same. Let’s keep it on us and control the things that we can control.” This isn’t the first time his team has been in contention for a conference title. He led the Buckeyes to outright regular season titles in 2006 and 2007. However, with the exception of junior David Lighty, none of the players on this year’s team have been a part of those championship teams. For Turner, the opportunity is one that he and his teammates have embraced. “I definitely think about the opportunity, but at the same time I’m not really nervous,” Turner said. “You have to go in prepared, have confidence and have an attack mentality.” He and the rest of the Buckeyes know that all eyes will be on Columbus tonight. Considering what’s at stake, OSU’s battle with Purdue has the potential to be one of the year’s best games, not only in the Big Ten, but in all of college basketball. Like Turner, Lighty said his team knows what’s at stake. “It’s up to us,” Lighty said. “It’s in our hands to go and get the Big Ten championship.”

Interim coach

has jump started Jackets since Hitchcock’s departure Of course, by mailing it in and prematurely quitting on the year, a good man and a good coach lost his job. New interim coach Claude Noel has tried just about everything in an attempt to exhume the remains of the campaign. Noel, sort of the anti-Hitchcock, has been doing everything in his power to make himself stand out as a new and driving force behind this mini-resurgence. The often dour Hitchcock’s best attempts at levity were limited to his pre-press conference opening remarks of “Fire away, folks.” Noel, by contrast, has been described with words like “quirky,” “humorous” and “an absent-minded professor.” Reports of his unusual attempts at motivation include requiring players to memorize quotes before practice, asking random trivia questions about upcoming opponents and even surprising the players by not attending practice, requiring captain Rick Nash and assistant captain R.J. Umberger to take over. And then there is the fabled hard-hat that most of the Jackets regular beat writers seem so enamored of. Following the Jackets’ first win under Noel’s tutelage, a 2-1 victory over the Dallas Stars at home, then-struggling goalie Steve Mason was at his locker sporting a bright white hard-hat emblazoned with the Jackets logo. A sheepish Mason explained that it was a new trophy to be awarded to the team’s hardest worker following a win. Nash hands out the award, but it was clearly Noel’s brainchild. And then there is Noel’s rhetoric. Every post-game presser is peppered with admonitions to his players to “play with joy” and “free their minds.” It’s not that I’m not against “joy,” per se. To be so would be akin to announcing distaste for puppies or rainbows. It’s just that in my experience, “joy” never fore-checks and “free minds” don’t stop soft goals or prevent own-zone turnovers. Discipline and sharp minds do. Noel’s advice to his players on how to spend their breaks and gear up for a possible playoff run? “I’m telling them to let their mind go free, enjoy their time away, and come back with vim and vigor and joy,” Noel said. He seems like he would equally at home in the smoky haze of a Phish concert as in an ice rink. He’s benefited thus far from the spike that normally correlates to a head coach’s firing and subsequent replacement. Will his shtick be enough to attain the seemingly unattainable goal of the playoffs? Only time will tell. If not, there’s always a vacation in the Caymans to look forward to.

prepare for April’s draft been going on for a while now and you have to do well at it if you want to be successful.” The schedule is rigorous for the former Buckeyes. For most of them, it includes turning their attention from being a student as well as an athlete to being a full-time athlete. For many of them it includes changing their lifestyle to fit what will most likely be their job from now on. “Sometimes you come in Saturday morning for a couple

hours, maybe not such an intense workout but more technique stuff,” Spitler said. “It’s pretty intense and our bodies are feeling it.” Changing not only their fitness programs but also what they put into their bodies is also key as players prepare for the Combine. If a player shows up out of shape or with their weight not where it should be, it conveys an alarming sign of a lack of discipline and work ethic. “I am on a strict diet,” safety Kurt Coleman said. “I have someone cooking me food, my brother is helping me keep on my weight. So it is pretty strenuous.” While the OSU staff helps

the players excel in their time here as players, the staff’s work doesn’t stop once a player has played their last game for the Scarlet and Gray. If a player has NFL aspirations, the staff will do everything they can to get them there. The players work primarily with Eric Lichter, OSU’s director of football performance. His main role is to oversee everything pertaining to strength and conditioning while helping to improve speed and explosiveness. Lichter works with each prospect in an effort to improve anything they might be lacking headed into workouts. Little skills and techniques he teaches could

mean a split-second difference in a drill and in turn a difference in where a guy is drafted. His knowledge and experience is something that can positively impact each player and help them to make strides toward the next level. “The coaches have been wonderful,” Spitler said. “I know coach Lichter, I think this is his favorite thing. He is really passionate about it and really good at it. So most of the time we’ve been with the coaches and always had someone there to help us and guide us. We’ve been really fortunate for that.”
