Students will pay quarterly fee for Union EVERDEEN MASON Editor-in-chief mason.388@osu.edu Ohio State has ofÿcially announced the new “Student Union Facility Fee,” which will cost students up to $62 a quarter beginning Spring Quarter 2010. Administrators and student government have known about the plan for the fee for six years. According to minutes from a June 2009 OSU Board of Trustees meeting, when the Union project was approved in 2004 it had been decided that a student fee would be needed for the project to proceed.

“This was agreed to at the time by all the stakeholders, including the administration, Board of Trustees and all three respective student governments,” accord-

ing to the minutes. The new fee is needed in order to defer some of the $118 million construction cost, as well as future maintenance, said Kurt Foriska, assistant director of the Union. The fee will start at $27, then rise to $62 by 2014.

After that, “it would adjust based on in° ation,” Foriska added. “What we’re trying to do is think ahead,” Foriska said. “That money is there for when the building needs maintenance … we’re not out to make surplus money.” The student governments agreed to the fee on the condition that students would be told about the fee ahead of time, said University Student Government President Ben Anthony. They wanted to make sure that “if there was going to be a fee, that it was not paid until students could use it,” Anthony said. However, “student government since 2004 [hasn’t] had much of a hand in the project.”

The Coca-Cola corporation has helped keep the fee down as well, giving enough money to lower the Union fee for the time being. “We wanted to make sure there was a transition into the fee,” Foriska said. “It was all done with good intent.” Foriska also said they have informed the last two freshman classes of the fee at freshman orientation. “We are not trying to hide the fee at all,” Foriska said. “I’m open to talking to students if they need to talk.” Check out thelantern.com for more details on the fee.

Love and basketball, at OSU ALLYSON KRAEMER Lantern reporter kraemer.18@osu.edu It truly is love and basketball. Ohio State point guards Samantha Prahalis and Evan Turner are what many would call, “Facebook ofÿcial.” Sure, Turner could talk basketball all day, but it doesn’t compare to the illuminating smile he ° ashed when asked about his relationship with Prahalis. It’s likely the only interview that has made him blush. Both sporting No. 21 on their jerseys, they have more in common than meets the eye.

Prahalis and Turner came to OSU from more than 350 miles away — New York and Chicago respectively — but each calls the Schottenstein Center home. Turner said they met while hanging around the Schott together. Between practices, lifting, ÿlms, press conferences and classes it would seem that there’s no time for a relationship, but despite their hectic schedule they ÿnd time to spend with one another. “We see each other after practice mostly,” Prahalis said. “We go to the movies and stuff. It gets hard but we make it work.” As if they are on the same wavelength, Turner echoed that they usually ÿnd time to hang out after practice. They also ÿnd time to watch one another play, or at least they think.

Audit: significant deficits in OSU finances

$1.4 million audit finds payroll problems, including too many people with access to info DAN MCKEEVER Oller Projects Reporter mckeever.16@osu.edu An audit of Ohio State’s ÿnancial statements turned up ÿve signiÿcant issues, according to a report that will be presented to members of the Board of Trustees on Thursday. The audit, which was performed by the ÿrm Deloitte & Touche, found 16 deÿciencies with OSU’s internal controls for ÿnancial reporting, ÿve of which were deemed “signiÿcant” under the standards of the American Institute of Certiÿed Public Accountants. One signiÿcant deÿciency, which concerned payroll controls, was identiÿed last year in the previous audit performed by Deloitte, but the problem has not yet been ÿxed, according to the audit. Deloitte performs its audit annually. Among the payroll problems identiÿed by the audit were the failures of some departments to complete payroll checklists or certiÿcations, an excessive number of people with access to payroll

information and late processing of terminations. Of the more than 26,000 terminations during 2008, 23 percent were processed anywhere from 30 days to almost 10 years after the employment ended. One graduate student employee was paid for three months after the position ended. In order to remedy these payroll control issues, Senior Vice President for Business and Finance Bill Shkurti and Vice President for Human Resources Larry Lewellen agreed to move the responsibility for

payroll from the Ofÿce of Human Resources to the Ofÿce of Business and Finance, which includes the Ofÿce of the Controller, Shkurti said in an e-mail. “We felt that [payroll control] is primarily a budget control function that ÿts better in the Controller’s ofÿce,” Shkurti said in an e-mail. “The Controller’s ofÿce is better structured to accomplish this function because it has application of controls as its primary function, whereas [Human Resources] does not.” Two more of the signiÿcant deÿciencies listed in the audit concerned the OSU Medical Center’s information security, and another two concerned the Medical Center’s ÿnancial accounting. OSU plans to ÿx one information security problem by March 31 and the other by June 30, and is ÿxing the ÿnancial reporting problems, according to the report. The audit cost $1.4 million, including $63,000 in contingency funds, the uses of which included additional work on a new software system installed in the hospital system, Shkurti said. The report will be presented to the board’s Audit and Compliance Committee Thursday.

There are more than $1.4 million in unpaid ÿnes owed to Ohio State Libraries. But despite the weak economy, library ofÿcials said there is no evidence that more patrons are struggling to pay library ÿnes, and the library has collected more than $80,000 in ÿnes since July. Diane Sliemers, business manager for the OSU libraries, said the ÿne total represented the entire amount owed by all faculty, staff, students and friends of the library, but that “at any given point that number can change drastically.” These ÿgures are cumulative and could represent unpaid ÿnes from as long as 15 years ago, said Tony Maniaci, coordinator of the library circulation services. Sliemers said that calculating the ÿne total is complicated because the numbers shift day to day. Students with books that are far overdue are charged a $140 replacement fee because the book is assumed lost. If the books are eventually returned, then often the fee will be revoked. Unlike most public libraries, such as the Columbus Metropolitan Library,

OSU’s libraries do not charge daily late fees for borrowed items unless they have been requested by someone else. Maniaci said this is common for academic libraries. This “encourages the idea that we want to get this material to another person, not to penalize,” said Larry Allen, communications coordinator for OSU Libraries. Often the focus is on getting the materials back, Sliemers said. “We’re not here to collect money. We don’t want students’ money,” she said. “We want our books back.” However, after 90 days, students who owe more than $75 have their accounts placed on a ÿnancial hold. They are barred from registering for classes and cannot receive grades, transcripts or ÿnancial aid. As of Dec. 31, 2009, there were 379 students who had holds placed on their accounts, and the total amount that those students owed was more than $123,000. Sliemers said it is important to understand that this number is also constantly in ° ux. For example, she said more students pay off their ÿnes in September in order to enroll in classes. Patrons of the Columbus Metropolitan Library owed about $1.1 million in

campus Hockey player will travel to Haiti for volunteer work SARAH WILCOX Lantern reporter wilcox.148@osu.edu “Spring break.” For most college students, the phrase means bikinis and swim trunks, sandy beaches and poolside cocktails. But for second-year Ohio State goaltender Barbara Bilko, it is a volunteer opportunity. The women’s ice hockey member has embraced a lifestyle of volunteering and community service in her ÿrst two years at OSU. Coach Jackie Barto said Bilko’s background and passion for giving back makes her a great representative of the women’s team. “She organizes a lot of the community service [we do],” Barto said. “She’s the one [on the team] that’s really a go-getter with that.” But even before college, Bilko found a zeal for philanthropy in high school at Shattuck St. Mary’s, an Episcopal church-afÿliated boarding school in Faribault, Minn. BARBARA BILKO “My senior year of high school I became a Christian. So I was involved with Fellowship of Christian Athletes [FCA],” Bilko said. The leader of FCA was from Columbus, so there was a bridge to OSU right away, Bilko said. Originally from Mountain Top, Pa., Bilko decided on OSU because she wanted to try something new. Having spent most of her life in Pennsylvania and Minnesota, Ohio became an option because it was “kind of right in the middle,” Bilko said. Once at OSU, Bilko was welcomed by some of the older girls on the team who then introduced her to Athletes in Action. According to their Web site, AIA is “a global Sports Ministry working with college and professional athletes to use the platform of sport to help people with questions of faith.” For Bilko, it felt like the right ÿt. “As soon as I got in the door I just loved it so much,” she said. Bilko said she became really involved at Ohio State because there were a lot more opportunities for her to pursue. AIA provided outreach programs like helping out at the Children’s hospital. In the past, Bilko even worked with a prison ministry.

A DINNER MAKES A DIFFERENCE Students serve food at the RPAC Monday evening during One University, One Cause: A Buckeye Benefit Dinner for Haiti. The pasta dinners were $10 and all proceeds were donated to the American Red Cross to benefit Haiti relief. OSU President Gordon Gee attended the dinner, mingled and spoke to the crowd.

I was kind of half kidding, half serious when putting it out there with, ‘Can I come as a translator?’ So they pitched the idea to the head of the team going down and they said, ‘Yeah.’ Barbara Bilko OSU women’s hockey player and member of Athletes in Action

Wanting to do more, Bilko got involved with the Student-Athlete Advisory Board. She joined SAAB’s community service committee and discovered a new part of herself. “We get to go to elementary schools to read [to kids],” Bilko said. “And I started to realize that I have a heart for kids.” And then it clicked. Bilko’s father, who helped introduce her to hockey, is an orthopedic surgeon who works with sports teams like the Patriots and Junior hockey teams. After the ÿrst Haiti earthquake, her father talked about traveling to Haiti to help out with the relief effort through a group from USA Hockey Helping Haiti. Bilko talked to her dad about the trip down south, suggesting she put her minor in French to use helping translate. “I was kind of half kidding, half serious when putting it out there with, ‘Can I come as a translator?’” Bilko said. “So they pitched the idea to the head of the team [going] down, and they said, ‘Yeah.’” Come mid-March, Bilko will forgo the typical spring break party scene, and pursue a passion for helping others that has blossomed over the last few years. Among all the excitement and anticipation, Bilko has remained grounded. Despite her hectic lifestyle, she stressed how important it is to do something for others. “We’re very busy, but also very fortunate,” Bilko said. “We should just be so grateful and appreciative and give as much back as we can. I try to do that.”

“I think she comes. It’s so packed I think she’s up there somewhere,” Turner said. When she’s not traveling, she won’t miss it. “I’m at most of his games and then he comes when he’s home to see us play,” Prahalis said. Turner denies that there is added pressure when Prahalis is up in the crowd. “It’s just basketball,” he said. Turner admits the guys on the team joke around with him about his new relationship, but for the most part they are being mature about it, for now. The only argument they have with one another: Who would win if they played one-on-one? Both have an impressive resume. Prahalis was Big Ten Freshman of the Year last season, while Turner is a contender for National Player of the Year this season.

“If I was a girl, she’d probably give me a run for my money, but I don’t know, I think I might win,” Turner said. At 6-feet-7-inches, Turner has a foot of height on her, which might be signiÿcant. However, a run for his money may be an understatement. Prahalis may not measure up to his shoulders, but she is hot from behind the arc. She hits 35 percent of her 3-pointers, which surpasses Turner’s 28 percent. Of course he wouldn’t foul her, because she’s sure to make the fouls shots. She’s shooting 77 percent from the line. Take away their high-proÿle status, and their relationship is really no different from that of normal college co-eds. “I guess I’m hard to impress, but I’m not hard on him,” Prahalis said jokingly. They have even gotten over a big hump in most relationships; meeting each other’s parents. “I met her mom and dad and she’s met my mom. They’re good people I like them,” Turner said.

Metro libraries

outstanding ÿnes at the beginning of 2008, said Nick Tepe, manager of the circulation division there. That was the most recent information available. “It’s largely a function of the fact that we are such a large library,” Tepe said of the total in unpaid ÿnes, which ° uctuates but generally stays around $1 million. There are 21 branch libraries and 540,000 cardholders in the metropolitan library system. In contrast, Tepe said that in 2009 the library collected about $1.9 million in ÿnes from patrons. The budget for the library is around $42 million, most of which comes from property taxes and state funding. “We’ve done a variety of different approaches to try to get people to resolve their accounts and to get back in good standing with the library,” Tepe said. After $10 in ÿnes, patrons can no longer use library services. These measures include sending e-mails and postcards to patrons. For items worth $25 or more that have been left unreturned for more than 35 days, the Columbus library uses a collection agency. At some point, unpaid library ÿnes could affect a patron’s credit score, Tepe said. He said the numbers did not suggest that people were having more trouble than usual paying off their ÿnes due to the poor economy. “I have a feeling that people who are having economic difÿculties are more eager to pay off their ÿnes because they realize how useful it is to be able to use the library,” Tepe said, making note of the job search help and free computer use offered at the library. The Fresh Start program in the Columbus library system allows people to “read off” their ÿnes: For every hour they spend

reading in the library, $8 comes off their ÿne total. While OSU’s libraries do not offer a similar program, students can appeal their ÿnes online. Maniaci said the library ends up waiving more ÿnes than collecting — but only with good reason. “If it’s a good reason we try to take it into consideration, while still being fair to everyone else,” he said. Denisha Bruce, a secondyear in biology, is in the process of reading off her ÿnes at the Columbus library. She said she checked out movies for her younger brother who returned

them late. She was stuck with a $66.60 ÿne, but she said she has already “read off” more than half of that. Besides cash-strapped college students, Bruce said the Fresh Start program is also a solution for those “on the more ÿnancially unstable side of Columbus.” “There are kids who rack up a lot of money, and they can’t check out books anymore, and their parents don’t have [the money],” she said. “So it’s really good that they can come in and read them off for free.”

State gov’t seeks to boost economy by sending more people to college KEVIN SANCHEZ Lantern reporter sanchez.825@osu.edu In a state where 20 percent of the adult work force has not received more than a high school education, a new program is taking root that will attempt to change that statistic. February has been dubbed “Enroll Ohio Month” by Gov. Ted Strickland, named after the proposed initiative, which drives home the message that Ohio institutions must cooperate rather than compete in order to promote higher education. “For the ÿrst time in the history of Ohio, we have to collectively tell our story,” said Eric Fingerhut, chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents. The purpose of Enroll Ohio stems from Strickland’s proposed strategic plan for higher education — one of his ÿrst acts in ofÿce. “One of the goals set for this state is that by 2017, we would have 230,000 more people in higher ERIC FINGERHUT education,” said Melinda Swan, associate vice president of University Communications. Swan has been working for the Board of Regents to assist with Enroll Ohio. The main goal of Enroll Ohio was outlined

by Michael Chaney, chief communications ofÿcer for the Ohio Board of Regents. “If we raise the education level of the state, the state is going to do better economically,” said Chaney. “That not only means graduating more students, but also keeping them here in Ohio.” As stated by both Chaney and Swan, the program would include not only prospective students coming from high school, but also adults who have not gotten more than a high school education. “There are almost 1.3 million adults in Ohio who started, but did not ÿnish, college,” Swan said. She also noted that Ohioans with a degree make an average of $17,000 more per year when compared to those with only a high school education. The inaugural Enroll Ohio event, which was held at the Longaberger Alumni House, began with a presentation by two professors in the Kiplinger Program at the John Glenn School of Public Affairs. Debra Jasper and Betsy Hubbard led a discussion that highlighted topics such as social media, outreach, new forms of communication and the ever-changing digital world. The purpose of this presentation was to show the audience a variety of new ways to reach prospective students in today’s society. “If Facebook was a country today, it would be the third largest country in the world,” said Jasper. “We have to change the way we communicate so we can reach a larger online community.” Hubbard echoed these statements, saying that society is now part of a global network,

and the educators of the world need to adjust accordingly. After a short break, Fingerhut began discussing the positives and negatives of how Ohio institutions currently handle the promotion of higher education. His key philosophy was the collaboration of the various schools statewide to achieve this common goal. “This is about partnership, about working together,” said Fingerhut, emphasizing that education is “the greatest asset this state has. “There is not a state in the union that doesn’t want what we have,” said Fingerhut. “If we’re going to be prosperous as a state in this economy, we are the answer.” Fingerhut continued to promote the idea that a large part of the Enroll Ohio initiative was communicating to prospective students that college can be affordable and accessible. The session led by the chancellor involved group discussions in which tables submitted comments on various questions via computers, in an attempt to grasp the pulse of the assembled on topics involving enrollment, obstacles, and suggestions for promoting a higher education. “Every action we take, we ask if it relates to the plan,” said Chaney. The proposed Enroll Ohio program will encompass 10 years and brings with it the hope that the state economy will ° ourish as a result. Chaney believes that talking to students is the best way to accomplish the initiative’s goals. “Historically, we’ve just talked to institutions, we haven’t talked directly to prospective student,” said Chaney.

sports Promising outfield gives lineup hope

joshua a. davidson Lantern reporter davidson.252@osu.edu

tra vis rockhold Lantern reporter rockhold.16@osu.edu With the disappointing season the Cleveland Indians had last year, finding bright spots isn’t easy. The one area that has made Tribe fans start to think positively about the future is the outfield, more specifically Michael Brantley. Brantley, who is only 22, might let people forgive General Manager Mark Shapiro for the C.C Sabathia trade. Brantley was one of the players who came over in the deal that sent the ace-hurler to Milwaukee in 2008. Brantley made a name for himself last year with the Triple-A Columbus Clippers, the Cleveland Indians’ minor league affiliate. Brantley played in 116 games before getting the phone call to join the Indians. Brantley had a batting average of .267 and 80 runs scored. He also showed his speed on the base path with 46 stolen bases. Late in the season, he made his way to Cleveland and showed he is ready to play. “Michael brings a lot to the table and he is going to be a part of our future for a long time here,” manager Manny Acta said. In 28 games with the Indians, Brantley had a batting average of .313. He also showed that not only can he hit, but he can also play defense. In those 28 games Brantley played with the Indians, he said he was able to have success and wants to get back to that point. He also said playing in those games gave him a comfort level that should help him out this year. “He is a guy who projects to be a leadoff hitter for a long time because he has a high on-base percentage and [because of] his ability to steal bases,” Acta said. Brantley has leadoff potential but for now he will have to take a backseat to fellow outfielder Grady Sizemore. Like Brantley, Sizemore also brings speed on the base path to go along with his power. When healthy, Sizemore is a 30 home run, 30 steals type of player. The same guy Brantley is challenging for the leadoff spot is also the man who has helped Brantley while with the Indians. Brantley said he picked Sizemore’s brain, asking questions about defense and scouting pitchers. The third member of the projected outfield lineup is right fielder Shin-Soo Choo. Last year Choo broke his personal best for home runs, runs batted in, stolen bases and hits. With the pitching issues the Indians have had, this trio can be a big help. What makes it so hard to get a hit on this outfield is the range and speed that all three outfielders have.

Signing from 8A

Too much attention given to high school football recruits

recruit, National Signing Day is as big as it gets. It’s the Super Bowl of the off-season. But why is this? With a margin of error that can turn a “can’t miss” linebacker prospect, once slated to be the next Lawrence Taylor, into the next Mike D’Andrea, why are we so fixated on these young men who are barely old enough to drive? There are two schools of thought. First, the three-ring circus atmosphere swirling around these kids’ press conferences is a testament to the soaring popularity of football. Regardless of the fact that Major League Baseball has staked a claim as America’s pastime, true sports fans know that in this country, football is king. The second line of reasoning is a little more sinister. These kids are another indication of the stark contrast our society has drawn between substance and celebrity. Where else would you find high school students who have yet to accomplish anything of real value being showered with televised attention, outside of MTV’s “Teen Mom?” If some Doogie Howser-type is getting ready to make his decision between Ivy League schools, the local press doesn’t show up to see whether or not he places the Yale or Harvard cap on his head.

Relief pitcher Jensen Lewis said it is nice to know you have these guys to back you up. He added it gives the pitchers the ability to challenge hitters knowing if a mistake is made, the outfielders will make a play. In 92 games last year, Sizemore didn’t have one error before his season was ended early due to an injury. Choo committed seven errors in 144 games, but still had a fielding percentage of .976. The Indians might have a lot of areas that need fixing but one area that looks like a complete group is the outfield. To add to this talented group, Sizemore and Choo are only 27 years old. If this group is able to stay healthy, it can be a productive one for the Indians.

And why? Odds are his contributions to society will be far more profound then simply ear-holing the quarterback during a blind-side rush on third and long. These athletes are raised up to a level in which their salaries and status surpass those of the people who make up the backbone of society — our doctors, teachers and civil servants. It’s the same phenomenon that allows four semi-literate meatheads from Jersey to take the world by storm. And lest you think that you are immune to such idol-worship, ask yourself this: Do you remember where you were on the day that Terrelle Pryor chose OSU over Michigan? I do. That particular coup for coach Tressel over new Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez seemed just as sweet as if we had actually defeated the Wolverines on the field. Waxing philosophic about the cultural dangers involved with idolizing a 17-yearold kid who scores touchdowns over the nerdy genius who may just find the cure for cancer (or at least male-pattern baldness) is not new. It just becomes a little more salient when National Signing Day occurs so closely to the horrific events that are transpiring in Haiti even as you read this. It serves to remind us of what we seem to be sorely lacking today as a society: perspective.

Tuesday February 2, 2010

Alomar brings experience to Tribe’s young cast of catchers The Cleveland Indians will be leaning hard on a couple of veterans to develop their new crop of catchers. Following the departure of catchers Victor Martinez and Kelly Shoppach, the Indians enter the 2010 season with an abundance of young catchers, who are high on potential but low on experience. Lou Marson, 23, and Wyatt Toregas, 27, are expected to compete for Opening Day honors behind the plate. But the duo combine for a measly 41 career major league starts. While one of the two, likely Marson, will share catching duties with newly acquired veteran Mike Redmond, the buzz in the organization is about another catching prospect. “We’ve got a young man named Carlos Santana, who isn’t too far off,” Indians General Manager Mark Shapiro said. It’s easy to see the excitement on Shapiro’s face when he talks about Santana, who is already being hailed as the next Martinez. Originally a third baseman, the switch-hitting Santana is currently rated the No. 11 prospect in all of baseball. The only problem is Santana is just that — a prospect. The 23-yearold Dominican has yet to catch a game at the Triple-A level. But that doesn’t dampen the spirits of Shapiro or first-year manager Manny Acta. “Before the year is over I’m sure we are going to see Carlos [Santana] because he is so talented,” Acta said. “He needs some seasoning in Triple-A and to continue to work on his defense. But we know because he is so talented, before the year is over he’s going to be up here helping us out.” Santana is set to start the season with the Columbus Clippers, the Indians’ Triple-A affiliate. When he does reach the big league club, Acta believes the Indians have experienced players and coaches in place to help develop Santana and the other young catchers. “Mike Redmond, who we just signed, is going to come in and help [our young] guys out,” Acta said. “Mike has been in our division for years. He’s a student of the game and has been a quality backup. We think he and Sandy [Alomar Jr.] are going to be huge for our young catchers.”

Pitchers from 8A

Rotation spots

still up for grabs as spring training nears Acta believes now could be the time the young hurlers put it all together. “We have some guys who started last year and showed some flashes,” Acta said. “They’ve pitched effectively in the past. We’re just looking for more consistency out of them. I think they’re at the right age to take that step forward.” To help the young starters take that step, the Indians promoted Tim Belcher from within the organization to be the Tribe’s pitching coach. Lewis has tremendous respect for Belcher, having had previous experience with him. “I’ve worked with Tim from the minute I got into the organization in 2005,” Lewis said. “He’s a hell of a competitor, very intense and pretty much as go-getter as you’re going to find. I think that he’s really going to help all of us in the staff, both in the rotation and bullpen.” Acta echoed Lewis’ belief that Belcher will have success in developing the youthful staff. “I think he can make a difference. Belcher is a guy who has been there and had success,” Acta said. “He’s very smart and already working hard in the offseason to have a plan in order for us to pound the strike zone.” Acta, like anyone who knows the game, understands the importance of controlling the strike zone. “We need to throw more strikes. It’s not a coincidence the guys who didn’t

Bench from 8A

OSU starters

racking up minutes in Big Ten play woes. Seven-foot-tall center Zisis Sarikopoulos and 6-foot-9-inch forward Nikola Kecman were recruited as players with aboveaverage offensive skills, yet both have been buried on the bench this season despite their impressive size. Before the season started, Sarikopoulos expressed confidence in his offensive abilities. “I think we are different in the way this team is set up. I know I can score on the block. I like to create action,” Sarikopoulos said. “So if I’m on the block and I’m not going to score, I can find the shooter. I can pass the ball very well.”

However, Anderson is still believed to be wavering between his two choices, with many thinking OSU could be the eventual destination for the bluechip prospect. Glenville has long been a flowing pipeline school for Ohio State. Products such as Heisman trophy winner Troy Smith, Ted Ginn Jr., Rob Rose and Ray Small are a few of the Tarblooders who have attended OSU. Every recruiting season, OSU seems to land the top players from the Cleveland institution, but has

Former Cleveland Indians catcher Sandy Alomar J r. was hired as the team’s first base coach. Alomar, a familiar name for Tribe fans, returns to the club this year as a first-base coach, and will be instrumental in the growth of the team’s catchers. Shapiro discussed the signing of Alomar at the team’s press tour stop in Columbus last Thursday. “It wasn’t just bringing back a name. It was a guy with a great catching program, a passion for coaching and a guy who is going to make an impact with our young catchers,” Shapiro said. “We’ve got three good, young catchers and I think Sandy will make an impact on whoever is up [on the major league level].” While the Indians are young at catcher, and virtually every position across the board, Acta still expects his club to produce this season. “We’re not just going to try and compete,” Acta said. “Our expectations are to win. We’re better than a lot of people give us credit for.”

pitch as well [had] way too many guys on base,” Acta said. Fausto Carmona is one of the Indians’ pitchers who struggled to throw strikes last year and tied a careerhigh with 70 walks. Consequently, Carmona set a career-high in losses with 12 and had a career-worst 6.32 ERA. The Indians will look for Carmona to bounce back to his 2007 form, when he won 19 games for the Tribe and recorded 137 strikeouts. “As long as Fausto does what he usually does he’ll be fine,” Lewis said. Carmona will start the season as the Indians’ second starter behind Westbrook. The third slot in the rotation looks to belong to Justin Masterson, who the Indians acquired in the Victor Martinez trade last season. In his first two seasons at the big league level Masterson juggled between starting and relieving. This year will be the first time the 24-year-old will have a full offseason to prepare as a starter. “Justin is a guy who is a tremendous competitor with above average stuff,” Shapiro said. “He wants to start and it’s just a question of repeating his delivery to be able to command the strike zone a little better. I think starting gives him a chance to do that.” Assuming Masterson adjusts to starting full time, the Indians will have two more spots to fill in the rotation. Those spots could be filled by any combination of David Huff, Aaron Laffey, Jeremy Sowers, Carlos Carrasco and Mitch Talbot. The Indians will use spring training

T he Indians hope pitcher Fausto Carmona will return to his 2007 form. to sort through their plethora of young starters. Acta said he expects a couple of the young guns to step up in Arizona, where the Tribe holds spring training. Acta believes if the Indians rotation is solidified, they have a chance to compete in a very balanced central division. “It’s not a secret,” he said. “All we need is our starting rotation to get in order.”

Last week, Matta hinted that he was concerned about Sarikopoulos and Kecman coping with the physicality of Big Ten play. Nonetheless, for the second year in a row, Matta has been relying heavily on his starters. According to kenpom.com, OSU ranks 327 out of 347 NCAA Division I teams in bench minutes. In order for the Buckeyes to attain a high seed for the NCAA tournament, they will need to finish the regular season strong, unlike last season when they lost four of their last seven games before the Big Ten Tournament. That might be hard to achieve considering the major minutes OSU’s starters have been logging.

to this point only landed defensive back Christian Bryant this year. If OSU could gain a letter-of-intent from Anderson, it would keep the flourishing connection with Glenville at the highest level. Another name being mentioned as a possible surprise commitment Wednesday is offensive lineman Morgan Moses. Moses was a U.S Army All-American in 2009 and committed to Virginia, but due to grade issues spent a year at Fork Union Military Academy. He showed

strong interest in OSU last year, and some believe he has always had interest in being a Buckeye. He did not take an official visit to OSU, so unless he extends his recruitment past Wednesday, Virginia will most likely be his destination.

doug dilillo Lantern reporter dilillo.2@osu.edu The Ohio State football team is preparing to welcome a brand new class of Buckeyes. Wednesday is National Signing Day, the first day recruits can officially sign a letter of intent to the school of his choice. OSU has several top prospects from Ohio and throughout the country already committed, and are waiting on the decisions of a select few. Offensive tackle Andrew Norwell, a five-star prospect from Anderson High School in Cincinnati, headlines the class for the Buckeyes. He was one of OSU’s first commits in the 2010 recruiting class, and will add to the depth to the ever-important offensive line. OSU always features some of the best linebackers in the Big Ten, and will add two more solid prospects from Ohio. Scott McVey, a middle linebacker from Cleveland St. Ignatius and linebacker Jamel Turner from Fork Union Military Academy are two top-10 prospects at their positions.

The 2010 class, however, sits lower in the overall team rankings than the last two classes the Buckeyes have signed. The class of 18 commits rank No. 17 overall by national recruiting Web site Scout.com and No. 22 by Rivals.com. In comparison, OSU has been in the top five each of the last two years, according to both sites. The Buckeyes have had several in-state prospects decide to go elsewhere. Coach Jim Tressel has put up a proverbial fence around Ohio since taking over at the helm for OSU, with very few top prospects escaping his grasp. This season, however, several of the most elite prospects chose to go elsewhere instead of coming to Columbus. On Friday, Ohio’s top prospect, linebacker Jordan Hicks of Lakota West High School, picked Texas over OSU and Florida. Several other top prospects, including Spencer Ware of Cincinnati Princeton and Latwan Anderson of Cleveland Glenville decided against OSU. These three prospects are considered some of the best in Ohio, according to Rivals.com. Regardless of how OSU has done so far, there are still some prospects left that could make this recruiting season one to remember for the Scarlet and Gray.

That piteous wailing you heard emanating from the Woody Hayes Athletic Center last Friday was the collective cry made by the Ohio State coaching staff upon hearing that prized recruit Jordan Hicks had selected the University of Texas over Ohio State. Blue chip, five-star, top prospect: These are the labels that make college football recruiting junkies salivate. They are the labels attached to Hicks and many other star high-school football athletes like him. An infusion of enough such players can salvage a flagging program. They can help a team “reload.” They can guarantee superiority in the conference for years to come. A dearth of such players can also be the death knell of a once-promising college coaching career. Recruiting struggles and the talent gap they create can get a coach fired in short order, regardless of his mastery of X’s and O’s. There are magazines with names like Prepstar, Lindy’s and Athlon whose sole existence revolves around the niche college football recruiting audience. There are countless recruiting Web sites dedicated to poring over all of the minutia involved in evaluating these 17- and 18-year-old high school students. Here at OSU, we have Bucknuts to keep us apprised of some fresh-faced youngster’s 40-yard dash time. For everyone involved in the worship of college football, from the coaching staffs to the adoring fans to the pundits who speak ad nauseam about this or that

Henderson is widely considered the country’s No. 1 prospect. The mammoth offensive tackle is so physically gifted and dominant that he has been compared to past greats such as Jonathan Ogden and the Buckeyes’ own Orlando Pace. A two-sport star, many believe Henderson could play college basketball as well. Sports Illustrated described him as “the most polished lineman of the past decade.” How good is Henderson? He became the first lineman in history to be named the All-USA Offensive Player of the Year, an award usually reserved for quarterbacks, running backs and wideouts. As for where he will attend next year, Henderson has played his recruiting very quietly, never naming a clear-cut leader. He could potentially decide on any of his top choices without it being much of a surprise.

For the Buckeyes, however, speculation is beginning to surface that Henderson might be wearing scarlet and gray on signing day. OSU’s main competition for the biggest recruiting prize of the year seems to be USC. Henderson appears to be rather partial to USC, but distance as well as recent coaching changes could benefit OSU. Notre Dame, which is closest to Henderson’s hometown, is also a threat to land his commitment. Two years ago, OSU came up smiling when the nation’s No. 1 player, Terrelle Pryor, finally made his college decision. Could OSU do it again on Wednesday? They will know soon enough. Henderson will make his decision known on national television at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday in New York City.

At times throughout the process James has listed Notre Dame as his favorite, before more recently pegging OSU as the team to beat for his services. A lot will depend on this past weekend, as James made his official visit to Notre Dame. Not much has been said about how his time went with the Fighting Irish, but if it went well, the more recent impression by Notre Dame could seal the deal. continued as Recruits on 7A

No rest for the weary: Bench nonexistent in Big Ten play grant freking Lantern reporter freking.4@osu.edu Last week, a reporter jokingly asked coach Thad Matta about the impact that senior walk-on and blogger extraordinaire Mark Titus’ potentially season-ending labrum injury will have on the depth of the Buckeyes’ bench. “Well, you thought when Evan [Turner] went down things were bad,” Matta said light-heartedly. “We’re going to have to try and fight through this.” The reality of the situation regarding OSU’s bench appears a bit more serious. The team’s four starting guards, juniors Evan Turner, David Lighty and Jon Diebler, along with sophomore William Buford, average at least 32 minutes a game. Whether Matta will admit it or not, those numbers point toward potential fatigue by the end of the season.

Seniors P.J. Hill and Jeremie Simmons each average more than 15 minutes a game, but those numbers are a bit inflated thanks to the playing time they received when Turner was sidelined with two broken vertebrae. In comparison, Michigan State has seven players that average at least 21 minutes a game and only one player, reigning Big Ten Player of the Year Kalin Lucas, averages over 30 minutes a game. Obviously, the Spartans possess more talent, as evidenced by their No. 5 ranking and 9-0 conference record. On the other hand, coach Tom Izzo has done a solid job balancing his players’ minutes in order to keep them fresh for the end of the season. The Buckeyes appear to lack that luxury. OSU is a guard-oriented offensive team. Their focus is using the playmaking abilities of Turner on offense, which usually results in him taking a shot or getting an open look for another one of the Buckeye guards. The big men have not played a prominent role.

Tribe relying on Westbrook’s battered elbow for results Several members of the Cleveland Indians, including manager Manny Acta and GM Mark Shapiro, made a pit stop in Columbus on the team’s annual Press Tour last week. Here is a preview of what to expect from the Tribe in 2010. joshua a. davidson Lantern reporter davidson.252@osu.edu Like most of the Cleveland Indians’ roster, the pitching staff is comprised mostly of young players. But that doesn’t stop Indians General Manager Mark Shapiro from putting pressure on the starting rotation. “It all depends on how the starting pitching comes together and what they accomplish,” Shapiro said. “If things break right I feel good about this group.”

In order for things to break right the Indians are going to need a big year from the lone veteran in the rotation, Jake Westbrook. Westbrook, who has been plagued by injuries, missed all of last season after having Tommy John surgery — elbow ligament replacement — in June 2008. Due to surgery and other injuries, the righthander hasn’t been able to complete a full season since 2006, but has proven he can be effective when healthy. Westbrook won 44 games for the Indians from 2004-2006. Finally healthy, the 32-year-old is looking to get back on the mound this season. “Obviously, Jake has been chomping at the bit to get back,” Indians relief pitcher Jensen Lewis

said. “Anytime you can get Westbrook 100 percent healthy, he’s going to be a force.” The Indians are looking for Westbrook not only to be a force on the field, but also a leader in the clubhouse. First-year Manager Manny Acta believes Westbrook will be just that. “Jake being healthy is going to be huge as a leader,” Acta said. “It’s easier to lead when you’re healthy and able to pitch and contribute.” Outside of Westbrook, the Indians don’t have a starting pitcher older than 26. While the staff is very young, it possesses valuable big-league experience.
