Gee’s signature item ties Buckeyes, charity BRANDON ROSIN Lantern reporter Some might know him for his off-color comments, others for his appearances at parties, but everyone knows him for his signature fashion statement: the bow tie. President E. Gordon Gee has donated a signed bow tie to a silent auction event Wednesday evening, which is expected to be one of the more popular items up for auction. The auction is hosted by a Pelotonia team, Team Buckeye Student Riders, and will take place from 6–9 p.m. at Woody’s Tavern in the Ohio Union. The event is free and open to anyone. All proceeds from the auction will go to research at Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. Team Buckeye Student Riders is a student-run group that rides each year in Pelotonia, an annual bike tour that raises money for cancer research. “We’re a non-profit kind of student organization,” said Lauren Kreger, marketing captain for the group. Items up for auction include a $200 Target gift card, Blue Jackets tickets, Kaplan test kits, a Fuji road bike, a Camelot Cellars wine experience and, of course, the autographed bow tie.

Gee’s bow tie tradition began more than 50 years ago when he was sitting in an ophthalmology office with his dad in Salt Lake City. He saw someone sporting the fashionable neckware for the first time. “The guy sitting next to me had one, and I asked him what it was, kind of curious,” Gee told The Lantern in 2010. “He undid it and then he tied it again, and I said, ‘How cool.’” Gee said he had his father buy him a couple bow ties that day, and now he has a collection of more than 1,000 bow ties. Kreger said she expects the bow tie to be one of the most popular items at the auction. “Signed by Gee, it’s priceless,” Kreger said. The doors open at 6 p.m., but people can come and go as they please for the duration, Kreger said. Items are set on tables with bid sheets in front of them, and bidders can write down new bids all night. This isn’t the first time one of Gee’s bow ties could be worn by someone else. One of his bow ties has made a journey into space. Richard M. Linnehan, an OSU alumnus, borrowed one of Gee’s scarlet and gray bow ties to take aboard the space shuttle Endeavour in 2008. In addition to the auction, patrons can buy raffle tickets to win smaller items. Tickets are $1 for one, or $5 for six. A raffle

which Kasich stated was the “largest deficit in the history of Ohio.” Kasich also said many students left the state after graduation to search for jobs elsewhere.

Kasich spoke about job progress in Ohio and said the state of Ohio went from being the thirdworst job creator to one of the top job creators in the nation. “A year ago, Ohio ranked 48 in job creation. We trailed only Michigan and California,” Kasich said. “Michigan, who has the automotive industry, and California is filled with a bunch of whack-a-doodles. Who would have thought we would have been third worst?” Kasich said in the last 10 years Ohio lost 600,000 jobs, and last year Ohio’s deficit was $8 billion,

“My uncle, he was shot at in his house through his window by a sniper, it barely missed his head,” Yousef Alghothani said. Alghothani, a third-year in biology and a Syrian-American, said in his father’s and uncle’s home town of Inkhil in the Daraa province in Syria, the village is surrounded by Syrian forces army tanks. Alghothani also said three of his male cousins were killed during a peaceful demonstration in Inkhil. “Some of my second and third cousins were shot and killed while protesting,” Alghothani said. “There’s also some YouTube videos of my cousins after they were martyred.” Kamal Haykal, a recent Ohio

State graduate, said his close friend was kidnapped by the Syrian “secret police” during a recent visit to Syria. Haykal’s friend left for Syria last month to take part in the Syrian revolution, and upon his arrival at the Syrian airport, Haykal said his friend was kidnapped and his whereabouts are yet to be determined. “He decided to go back. I wished him well, I tried to convince him to stay. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to do so, and he’s recently subdued in the airport by the secret police,” Haykal said. Haykal and Alghothani said they are unable to freely communicate with their families in Syria, given that the Syrian government censors all forms of communication going in and out of the troubled country. “They’re not very free to speak what they want because of surveillance constantly over the phone, so

Vice President Joe Biden will be speaking at the Ohio Newspaper Association’s 2012 conference.

Joe Biden, Jack Hanna among several to speak at ONA convention Ayan Sheikh Lantern reporter U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, director emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and wildlife expert Jack Hanna and Pittsburgh Pirates owner and president and CEO of Ogden Newspapers Bob Nutting are the headline speakers at the Ohio Newspaper Association’s annual convention. The ONA conference is set to start Wednesday at the Hilton Columbus near Polaris Fashion Place. The conference concludes Thursday. Dennis Hetzel, executive director of ONA, told The Lantern the purpose of the convention is to generate discussions among the leaders in Ohio’s print journalism regarding current ongoing issues which range from how to sell more internet advertising, to the role of editorial pages in today’s digital age. “It’s really an opportunity for the people in Ohio’s newspaper industry to come together, learn a little bit, check out things with their colleagues,” Hetzel said. “We have panels with all kinds of subjects and hopefully get some ideas they can take home and put to use.”

Hetzel said one of the reasons for Biden’s visit might be the role Ohio plays as a key state in the March 6 Ohio primary. “Ohio’s going to be a very important state politically, so I somehow imagine that is part of the decision-making process that happened in his office,” Hetzel said. This will be Biden’s second visit to Ohio in a month, after his visit to Gahanna Lincoln High School on Jan. 12. Aside from the vice president, Hanna is set to share his experience with the media regarding the release of exotic animals in Zanesville, Ohio, in October. The convention will kick off with a reception Wednesday afternoon and panel discussions and presentations are set to begin Thursday. Also on the roster of events, ONA will announce the winners of its weekly and collegiate newspaper contest. The Lantern is a member of ONA and placed in all eight categories of the collegiate contest. Hetzel said although the topics discussed at the convention might change every year, the general reason for hosting the convention never changes. “We try to come up with topics and panels that are relevant to the issues that everybody’s dealing with today,” Hetzel said.

In an effort to help promote Ohio State as a zero-waste campus, a Recyclemania competition between North Campus residence halls Blackburn House and Norton House has begun. From Feb. 5 through Feb. 25, both halls will have their respective recycling bins measured to determine their weight in recyclable items. The winning residence hall will then be awarded a plaque at the end of the contest. The competition’s goal is to “raise awareness about recycling and how to effectively use recycling to help the environment,” said Colin Barclay, a first-year in crop science and the sustainability chair for Norton House. Recyclemania is a challenge among universities throughout the country, according to its website. Though Blackburn and Norton will be competing against each other, they are ultimately working together to promote an overall reduction in trash and increase in recycling at OSU. The competition began with a kick-off event for the residents on Feb. 1 in the Royer Student Activities Center. Activities included games, crafts made out of recyclable items and a trivia contest. There was also a station to make Valentine’s Day cards by reusing scrap material. Sara Burcham, a second-year in food business management and sustainability chair of Blackburn House, said she would like to see students get involved in the process. “I really hope that they get recycling to be a habit,” Burcham said. “It’s really easy to throw something in a trash can and it’s gone from your mind. But there’s so much more that happens.” Burcham said every one can make a difference when it comes to recycling. “I think that just by promoting reducing, reusing and recycling, all of the students in the residence halls (can) have

Blackburn House and Norton House on North Campus are competing in a recycling competition. an enormous impact. I hope that they realize that,” Burcham said. Sustainability competitions take place between the two halls once per quarter, each with a different focus. Blackburn House won the first competition, which dealt with energy efficiency. The theme of Spring Quarter will be water conservation.

creator in the country to the No. 9, and he did this while touting his success in bringing businesses to Ohio. For whatever part of that is true, great,” Heard said. “What we did not hear Gov. Kasich mention was what he was doing to create access to capital for existing and small businesses. What we know is that 85 percent of all new jobs are created from existing businesses.” Kasich attributes some of the success to his JobsOhio program. JobsOhio is “designed to lead Ohio’s job-creation efforts by singularly focusing on attracting and retaining jobs, with an emphasis on strategic industry sectors,” according to jobs-ohio. com JobsOhio focuses primarily on increasing jobs in manufacturing, automotive industry, engineering, logistics and health care. The JobsOhio program is starting “to bear fruit” Kasich said, but Kasich also called on Ohio parents to encourage their kids to go into manufacturing. “Manufacturing is coming back,” Kasich said. “Encourage your kids. If God created them to make things, let them make things.” Kasich also said he wants universities to encourage students to seek studies in professions that can build Ohio’s economy. “Our universities need to focus kids on realistic job propositions,” Kasich said.

“keep our young people at home,” however most students are not interested in pursuing the job professions Ohio needs. “(These jobs) are typically not jobs college graduates are attracted to,” Beck said. “(However), jobs in health care offer a lot of prospects.” Despite Kasich’s hopes in job creation and employment in Ohio, students are skeptical to the reality of the job market after they graduate. Monti Taylor, a second-year in biology, said she thinks it is an individual’s fault for not having a job. “I feel like there are jobs out there, (but) maybe it’s not something you want to do,” Taylor said. Other students do not believe unemployment has been resolved. “I think that you know how a lot of people say we are getting out of the recession, but I think that the numbers still show that unemployment is a problem that hasn’t really been resolved. And that it’s still a major issue that needs to be dealt with,” said Mike Lemon, a first-year in industrial design. “Statistics on unemployment have been subject to seasonal adjustments and all these factors that people don’t really hear about, so a lot of times it’s kind of an adjusted number, not really a flat-out one.” Lemon said he is unsure as to whether he will stay in Ohio after he graduates. “Personally I’m a follow-the-job kind of guy,” Lemon said. Taylor said she is not sure whether or not she will stay in Ohio either. “I don’t know,” Taylor said. “I’m not from Ohio so I might go back to Alabama.”

sent to Syria by the Arab League have done a poor job of preventing Bashar al-Assad, the president of Syria, from killing hundreds of innocent civilians. “Bashar al-Assad agrees with the Arab League, (saying) that he will bring reforms, but he’s not bringing reform, the next day he’s killing more people,” Payind said. Payind said social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter played a major role in sparking the Arab Spring across the Middle East and in helping Syrians share their stories with the rest of the world. It has now been 11 months since the start of the Syrian revolution and various media outlets have reported that the total number of deaths in Syria now exceeds 7,000. Alghothani said he wishes he could do more for his people. “I feel a lot of anger towards the government. There’s also a sense of helplessness because we’re all the way over here,” Alghothani said. Haykal said he tries to raise awareness of the hardships endured by the Syrian people by making use of social network sites to reach out to the Syrian people and ask them what they really need. “We’ve become quite intricate in our methods. We’ve created websites, we’ve created twitter campaigns, coordinated Facebook statuses. (Syrians) have become real good at creating YouTube videos on the subject,” Haykal said. Zoubaida Benzegala, a second-year in exploration, said the Assad regime and the constant killing of innocent people needs to come to an end. “It’s wrong regardless if Assad rightfully has ownership to his power,” Benzegala said. “You just can’t kill innocent people especially like, they’re not differentiating between women, children or anything like that.”

studentvoice New funds show Alzheimer’s not forgotten PATRICK SEAWORTH For The Lantern I opened my Blackberry’s Facebook app a few moments ago, and while scrolling through my news feed, I came across the Alzheimer’s Association’s post regarding new funding for Alzheimer’s research and care giving. Fifty million dollars has been gifted to research by the current Administration and Congress for a total of $130 million gifted to the realities of Alzheimer’s patients’ needs. My father’s mother succumbed to Alzheimer’s early in my life. My only memories of her are from her golden wedding anniversary party. By then, she

was in a wheelchair and in need of assistance to do the simplest of acts. And yet my grandfather was there, with what I can only assume was the steadfast belief, that somewhere in there, his wife was still very much alive. Like most from her generation, she was an amazing woman. During World War II, she raised her first son for three years while my grandfather was fighting in the Atlantic Theater. When he came home from the war, she raised five other children, my father, the third amongst them. She was a poet, a devoted Catholic, a supporter of young wives during the Vietnam War, a perpetual supporter of all academic endeavors and the Catholic Church as well. She was strong willed,

independent and unwaveringly faithful in all aspects of her life, and to all of her beliefs. While my grandfather was at work, she raised three veterans, two doctors, two lawyers, a university administrator and a logistics manager with General Mills. During Vietnam, her poetry inspired young wives waiting for their husbands, constantly watching not just for mail, but for bad news. Having seen her husband off to war, and having seen her eldest son leaving for Vietnam in 1968, she knew well what they were going through and never closed her door. Her poetry still sits within her children’s homes. There is one which was placed in my parent’s dining room long ago, which I particularly remember, and it reads,

“Dear Lord, Although I try and try, my halo slipped beneath my eyes. Please take it back, and mend it for a better fit.” Alzheimer’s created a barrier between she and I, but not before she took care of all others within her reach, while leaving a standard, not just for women to follow, but for all of us to follow. The truth of the matter is, we have only begun to scratch the surface of this disease in any meaningful manner. There are very few causes as in need of $50 million for research and $130 million in aid funds. AIDS and cancer come to mind, yet, it is far past due, that we invest in ensuring that our loved ones are not lost to a cause we have, as of yet, not paid enough attention to.

Freshmen should be able to choose housing like adults LANTERN Columnist


As I’m sure you all have heard, President E. Gordon Gee plans to enforce a requirement for not just first-years (excluding commuter students), but also second-years to live on campus by 2015. “Maybe 2016. Give me a year!” he joked at the quarterly meeting with The Lantern editorial board Monday. Gee was asked about different components of the project that might be concerns for project leaders and the community, including the physical space needed to house that many people, and also its effects on the off-campus housing market. However, the biggest gripe from first- and second-years would probably


be their sheer thirst for getting out of a dorm. While thinking about whether I thought making sophomores live on campus is right or wrong, I found myself reflecting on this question: Is it right to require first-years to live in dorms? And I answered myself, “I don’t think it is.” It’s an ironic situation to me. Dorms can be great. I see the benefit of living in a close community away from home: more opportunity, and therefore more likelihood, that you will make friends, thus enjoying your stay here. The convenience of living close to classes and resources like William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library and the RPAC is helpful, and the safety is unmatched. If I lived on Summit Street, I would think twice before studying at the library until midnight. I see all that the residence halls have to offer, and I think freshman should take advantage of it all, but I don’t think they should be forced to. How did we get here in the first place? Well, we were responsible throughout high school, and when the time came, we made an adult decision to apply for college. We didn’t have to, though. When we graduated high school — actually when we turned 18 — we could have done whatever we pleased:

lived with our parents, moved out, gotten married or joined the service. Great lives are achieved by many paths, but the path we chose was Ohio State, and we made that choice as adults, just like our high school counterparts who have already tied the knot. Why should our directional decision determine that we get less independence? Have we proven ourselves thus far to be untrustworthy? And how can one adult tell another adult — with the exception of the military for obvious reasons — where they must live when the latter has come to the institution of his own free will? How can society say to us high school graduates, “You may live and work where you please, but if you go to college like we want you to, we will revoke some of those freedoms?” It is ironic to me that with our newfound freedom of adulthood we come willingly to college only to be subjected to rules that suggest we are incapable of taking care of ourselves. Trust me. I know not all students can or do take care of themselves. The statistics correlate living in residence halls to higher graduation rates. And I believe them. But as adults, I think we should hope that other adults make the right decisions for themselves and as for the ones who don’t, then that should

Residence halls on South Campus undergo construction as part of the South Campus high rise project on Oct. 24, 2010. prove to themselves, their parents and the university that they are not ready to be living on their own, and they need to deal with the consequences. I know that Gee has only benevolent intentions by implementing this policy, and I have no disrespect for him, but

being that the majority of us are over 18 years of age and that we came willingly to the university searching for an education, we should only be required to fulfill educational requirements, and the decision of where to live should be left up to us.

Demetri Martin is a well-known figure in the realm of offbeat comedy, along with his “large pad” on which he illustrates a pie-chart of procrastination (an empty circle) and his “unnecessary bells,” which he kicks as he’s playing a guitar and harmonica. Wednesday, he’s bringing his act to Ohio State to the Ohio Union Archie M. Griffin Grand Ballroom at 8 p.m. “I’m going to shoot a special in February for Comedy Central,” Martin said in a phone interview with The Lantern. “So I’m psyched that I get to come to Ohio State during this tour, because I’m going to essentially run the special for folks at Ohio State.” Martin said he is a big fan of the college scene, feeling at home on a campus, where it’s acceptable to be “kinda dorky.” “I love going to college towns — I find campuses really soothing,” he said. “I also like going to libraries and bookstores. I associate it with what I consider a happy time in my life. There’s something picturesque about it.” And OSU has a lot to look forward to. Martin is known for his unusual style and visual tools which accompany his quirky, often one-line jokes, such as “It’s weird the way ‘finger puppets’ sounds OK as a noun.” He is known to draw with both hands at the same time to create humourous illustrations and doing odd physical activities such as unicycle riding. “Drawing is important because it got me thinking

more visually more than I would have otherwise,” Martin said. “There’s just this sense of development and learning. And I found that trying different things, even if they’re trivial, does change my perspective, even if it’s just a little bit, and helps me come up with different ideas for jokes, character ideas and stories.” Martin took full advantage of this theory in his series “Important Things with Demetri Martin,” which ran for two seasons on Comedy Central. Many of the episodes were produced by Jon Stewart of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” on which Martin also appeared as a satirical correspondent. “Working with Jon Stewart, working with Conan (O’Brien), those were really good jobs,” Martin said. “That was more like working with a professor or comedy teacher. I’m not really interested in politics at all, and my comedy reflects that pretty consistently. So the fact that I was on ‘The Daily Show’ at all was surprising to me, and it was an interesting fit.” Apart from Stewart and O’Brien, Martin has worked with an interesting assortment of big names in the comedy world, such as Flight of the Conchords and H. John Benjamin, who is a voiceactor in the animated comedy series “Archer.” “I spend the most time working alone, which I really enjoy,” Martin said. “But over the years, I’ve had a chance to be a guest on somebody else’s project or have somebody work on mine. John Benjamin is an old friend from New York, doing the alternative (comedy clubs) in the Lower East Side. He was always one of my favorites. He would hang out and he always makes me laugh a lot.” There aren’t too many comedians who have built

their career on one-liners, but that hasn’t stopped Martin from becoming successful. “The first comedian I liked, as a kid, was Bill Cosby,” he said. “I always say Stephen Wright and Gary Larson are probably my two biggest influences because I just like their basic jokes and short ideas. But I love Woody Allen, Richard Pryor and Steve Martin.” He said he was often compared to the late Mitch Hedberg, who is well-known for his sporadic and strange one-line observations and odd stage presence. “Many people who’ve never heard of Stephen Wright said that I was like Mitch, which I take as a compliment, because I think Mitch is a great comic,” Martin said. “But it really wouldn’t be honest for me to say that Mitch was a big influence on (me) because it was more Stephen Wright for me.” But most of all, he said he prefers to be recognized as being uniquely Demetri. “The further you get into stand-up, hopefully the more people understand that you’re just doing yourself, being yourself,” Martin said. “The first time I ever did stand-up, I did one-liners. So that’s pretty much what I’ve been drawn to. Woody Allen liked doing magic when he was a kid, Steve Martin liked magic. I like just kind of day-dreaming, and doing puzzles was one way to do that when I was in school, it was a kind of escape. I found my brand of comedy pretty quickly, it’s how my head works.” To read the rest of this story, visit Read our online edition Friday for a recap of this event.

For some people, Black History Month means taking the time to recognize the iconic figures of the Civil Rights Movement. For the South African group Ladysmith Black Mambazo, it is another chance for the members to connect people of all races and ethnicities through its music. Ladysmith Black Mambazo is scheduled to perform at the Southern Theatre at 8 p.m. Wednesday. “Our music is music that unites people,” said Albert Mazibuko, one of the oldest members of Ladysmith Black Mambazo. “When we formed the group in the late ‘60s, our aim was to encourage people to work together, especially the black people. To stay strong and fight for their freedom … in a peaceful way.” Mazibuko and the founder of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Joseph Shabalala, are the only two original members in the group. It has lost and gained members over its career, which spans longer than 50 years. The name serves as a totem of perseverance and as a reminder of Mazibuko’s and Shabalala’s hometown, Ladysmith. “The ‘Black’ refers to the black skin of oxen, because when we grew up, we were using this animal to plow the land,” Mazibuko said. “So we found out that the black ones were more powerful than the other ones, so we want our group to be powerful.” Mazibuko described the word “Mambazo,” or chopping ax, as an important tool in farm life. When all three words are combined, it is hoped that people recognize and remember where the group came from, Mazibuko said. The majority of Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s music is derived from a style called isicathamiya. It was developed in South African mines by black workers as a way to cope with harsh working conditions. Mining was a large source of revenue during the South African apartheid. Ladysmith Black Mambazo uses the isicathamiya

Ladysmith Black Mambazo is scheduled to perform at the Southern Theatre at 8 p.m. Feb. 8. style of music to uplift its listeners’ low spirits and generate hope through predominantly gospel music. But Shabalala said in a press release that regardless of what spirituality you follow, the music evokes enthusiasm and excitement. “Without hearing the lyrics, this music gets into the blood, because it comes from the blood,” he said in the release. Ladysmith Black Mambazo is a compilation of nine singers. Mazibuko said the group does not employ instruments because the instruments are in their chests. The group released its first U.S. album, “Shaka Zulu,” in the 1980s. It was produced by Paul Simon of Simon and Garfunkel, and won the 1988 Grammy award for Best Traditional Folk Album. After 15 Grammy nominations and three Grammy wins according to a press release, the group has recorded for Disney’s “The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride,” and has worked with renowned artists such as Ben Harper and Dolly Parton. The group is working on opening a school of music in South Africa. “South Africa is so rich when it comes to music,”

Mazibuko said. “Now, our dream … is to have a school that anybody who wants to learn about South African music can go there and learn the music. And so this is going to be in our hometown in Ladysmith.” Megan Swan, a second-year in fashion and retail studies, said she believes the collaboration between Ladysmith Black Mambazo and American artists will create an opportunity to teach diversity. “It’s important because it will create more cultural diversity for coming over here and then they learn more music to take back to teach others, and just to give (students) more of an education in all aspects, not just in the classroom,” she said. Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s latest musical work focuses on the carefree enjoyment of childhood. “We wanted to go back to our childhood and, you know, just to touch on the kind of feeling how we felt when we were young people, and how we were looking at things.” Mazibuko said. “Even to perform those songs on stage, it’s wonderful, and I am so happy.” Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster or at the Ohio Theatre ticket office for $28 and $33.

Men’s hockey ‘desperate,’ not panicking Andrew Holleran Senior Lantern reporter On a 10-game winless streak with four games left in the regular season and one of its top players suspended, one might think it is time for the Ohio State men’s ice hockey team to start panicking. OSU senior defenseman and co-captain Sean Duddy said otherwise. “It’s not panic, but there is definitely some frustration,” Duddy said. “It is more of a sense of desperation. We didn’t have that for 60 minutes of desperation hockey (Saturday). Panic isn’t the right word. We know what we have in the locker room.” What OSU has in the locker room is a team full of underclassmen. A total of 19 freshman and sophomores make up a Buckeye roster with only nine juniors and seniors. One of the few upperclassmen, senior forward Danny Dries, has been suspended indefinitely. Dries is one of OSU’s best offensive threats, as he is second on the team in points (21), second in goals (12) and third in power-play scores (4). “He broke team rules,” said OSU coach Mark Osiecki. “It’s one of those things where we sat down with him, our team, administrators. He’s been suspended, and we’re not sure when or if there will be a return.” The No. 15-ranked Buckeyes, 0-6-4 in their past 10 games, are winless in 2012 and were swept by Michigan State, 6-3 and 3-2, respectively, Friday and Saturday. Osiecki attributed a lot of the Buckeyes’ recent woes to the team being young, saying the team presses too much to get erase deficits on the scoreboard. “I think they are (pressing). A lot of times we’re leaning on, you know, (freshman forward Max)

McCormick, (freshman forward Tanner) Fritz, (freshman forward Ryan) Dzingel on the power play there, (and sophomore forward Chris) Crane quite a bit. Those guys are all young. That’s where it’s hard,” Osiecki said. Inexperienced or not, OSU has found itself in a position that it likely doesn’t want to be in. After holding a seven-point lead in first place in the CCHA in early January, OSU (14-10-5, 10-9-5-1 CCHA) is in a tie for fourth place in the conference and is five points back of first-place Ferris State. The top five teams in the conference receive a first-round bye in the CCHA tournament that begins in March, with the top four teams all guaranteed at least one home game in the league championship. During the winless streak, the Buckeyes have only gained four out of a possible 30 points to be had. OSU has been outscored 32-19 over the past 10 games, after scoring 35 goals during a nine-game winning streak in November. Duddy said he hopes everything the Buckeyes have gone through this season will provide dividends when the postseason starts. “This has been a great learning experience (for the underclassmen). It’s tough throwing so much responsibility on the young guys, but they have been in that position in junior hockey. Hopefully this translates and something clicks going into the playoffs,” he said. Fritz, the Buckeyes’ top goal-scorer (5) over the past four games, said it is time for himself and his fellow freshman to grow up. “We had some disappointing results as a team, but going forward we need to get after it,” he said. “The freshmen need to start playing like sophomores.” OSU will look to end their winless streak this weekend with a two-game series against Western Michigan, starting Friday at 7:05 p.m. in Kalamazoo, Mich.

The winds are changing. With multiple reports saying the Big Ten Conference is considering a four–team playoff in college football, you can consider some form of a playoff system in college football an inevitability. “We have to listen to the fans; we cannot be tone-deaf,” Northwestern director of athletics and recreation Jim Phillips told the Chicago Tribune on the matter. “The Big Ten is open and curious.” Like the BCS or hate it, the Big Ten plan would do away with the current system. The top four teams in the BCS would play in a tournament with the top two seeds hosting the semifinal games at their home stadium. The semi-final winners would then meet for a revamped version of

college football’s National Championship game. The proposal is nothing new but the support of it is, and with powerful people warming up to the idea, it’s only a matter of time. Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee discussed the possibility of a playoff with The Lantern Monday and his previous stalwart anti-playoff tune is changing a bit. Gee still is against the notion of a playoff, but has lightened his stance. “I’m very much on record of being opposed to a playoff system,” Gee said. “Saying that, one of the things you have to do at my age, you have to understand that the world is changing around you, so therefore you have to take a look and see what the possibilities are … I want to think about it.” The fact Gee is even willing to think about it speaks loudly. People in high places are talking and being forced to reevaluate their position on the issue. In 2008, the SEC proposed a similar four-team playoff system. At that time, the ACC supported the proposal, but Big Ten, Pac-10, Big 12, Big East and Notre Dame all rejected it. But if the Big Ten jumps on board and supports a playoff, that makes waves. The SEC and Big Ten are the two most powerful conferences in college football. They have the strongest fan bases and the most stability. If the two powerhouse conferences

“One of the things you have to do at my age, you have to understand that the world is changing around you, so therefore you have to take a look and see what the possibilities are … I want to think about it.” E. Gordon Gee OSU president speaking on a multiteam playoff format for college football in the support can align, others will follow. The Pac-12, which also wields significant power in college football, has always worked closely with the Big Ten. The two conferences recently signed a multisport scheduling agreement and have preserved the notoriety of the Rose Bowl amid the BCS system. The Big 12 is still gasping for air after being on the verge of extinction from conference realignment and the Big East’s football prowess is further deteriorating with the departure of Pittsburgh, Syracuse and most likely West Virginia. If the SEC, Big Ten and Pac-12 can align, there’s nothing that can stop them. With bowl attendance declining and the 2012 BCS Championship game’s rating down about 13 percent

from last year, people now more than ever are looking for a change. From an academic perspective, students are missing class to travel across the country and play in a BCS game when games could easily be played over winter break. “There is a very strong sense that we have missed the boat and are playing games too late,” Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany told the Chicago Tribune. “Students are back in class, people are back at work.” Delany has talked to Gee on the subject too. “I actually had the commissioner on campus to talk to me and to the athletic director and the football coach to kind of explain what all the options are,” Gee said. “He explained a number of different kinds of options including the plus-one system.” People in high places are talking. Obviously, there are a multitude of issues that would have to be worked out, but the movement is underway. It might not happen today. It might not happen tomorrow. But a playoff system in college football will happen. Just wait.
