thelantern Three tackle tuition and costs
Board members have until May to decide how much students will pay starting summer DAN MCKEEVER Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org The Ohio State Board of Trustees told three of its members Friday to determine whether tuition and costs will rise starting this summer, and by how much. The three committee chairs have until May to decide tuition and costs for the upcoming Summer and Autumn quarters. Fiscal Affairs Committee chair Jo Ann Davidson, Academic Affairs and Student Life Committee chair John Ong and Board chairman Les Wexner will present their decision for conÿrmation at the board’s May meeting, Davidson said. The board usually sets tuition costs at its April meeting, but because the board will not meet until May, Davidson, Ong and Wexner will set tuition after consulting with members of OSU’s administration. Yearly tuition for a full-time resident undergraduate at OSU’s Columbus campus was $8,706 for the 2009-2010 school year. Tuition for resident undergraduate students has been frozen for three consecutive years at Ohio State, but will likely see an increase next year. Chatas succeeds CFO Shkurti The board named Geoffrey Chatas as OSU’s new chief ÿnancial ofÿcer Friday.
JO ANN DAVIDSON
Chatas served as managing director of the Infrastructure Investments Fund at JP Morgan Asset Management, and has co-taught master’s ÿnance classes at the Fisher College of Business for the past three years. Chatas replaces Senior Vice President for Business and Finance Bill Shkurti, who is retiring March 31 as CFO. Shkurti, who was tabbed to lead OSU’s Ofÿce of Finance by President E. Gordon Gee in 1990, was recognized by the board with a formal expression of appreciation.

After spending four years and more than $125 million, the university will have a new state-of-theart science building in 2014. To get there, several academic departments will go through a series of moves that some say will harm their departments. The new Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry building will be built between 19th and Woodruff avenues on the current site of four buildings: the Aviation building, Johnston Labs, Boyd Hall and Haskett Hall. They will be demolished by June 2011. OSU alumnus William G. Lowrie has pledged $17 million to the university, most of which is for construction. Also, the state is providing $96.5 million for construction. Provisions in both the 315 pledge and state contribution require that demolition begin soon. University ofÿcials say it is urgent the project begin soon. “The thing that seems a little funny about all this … is that what is driving it all is money, and expediency, because there has been a real quick schedule that has been necessitated by all this,” said Paul Nini, interim chair of the Department of Design. “I am not sure that the ultimate impact on students has been fully considered as it ought to be.” The arts departments are scrambling to ÿnd new space. The moving plans keep the sciences in a central location. The arts, however, will be scattered throughout campus. Second-year visual design student Lindsey Glover is distressed.

KEVIN SANCHEZ Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org When Benjamin Franklin discovered electricity in 1752, the notion of automobiles did not even glimmer in his brilliant mind. The minds behind the Ohio State EcoCAR team, however, are using the power of electricity on the concept vehicle being designed for their national competition. Last week was an important period for this group, as they were visited by a vital sponsor in addition to being awarded ÿrst place in one of the several contests involved in the competition. EcoCAR: The NeXt Challenge, sponsored by General Motors, gives 16 institutions across the country the task of redesigning a companydonated vehicle into a hybrid automobile. The 30-person OSU crew is engineering a car powered by both electric and ethanol engines in an effort to decrease emissions and fuel consumption. Competition sponsor Snap-On paid a visit to the Center for Automotive Research Friday to present the team with a tool kit, which features insulated tools that will be essential in working with the electric components in the group’s concept car. The crew was also awarded ÿrst place for its efforts in designing a Hardware-in-the-Loop system at the EcoCAR Winter Workshop in Florida in early January. An HIL system is crucial for running simulations of the vehicle and testing faults without putting anyone in danger, said team leader Eric Schacht. Schacht is able to use a real controller to test the vehicle instead of a computer simulation using the team’s HIL design. That way, before the car is built, the group will know the controllers for the vehicle really work.

campus Tech makes class interactive JACK MOORE Lantern reporter email@example.com It is a common sight in classes all over Ohio State: a lecture hall crammed with hundreds of students in various states of interest and wakefulness. A growing technology trend is being used to combat the snores of bored students and pique their interest. Clickers, a nickname for a type of audience response system, are handheld devices that record responses by communicating with a receiver through radio waves. Bill Reay, a professor emeritus of physics, thinks that with a clicker in every student’s hand, lectures can become more effective at the touch of a button. “Lectures are singularly ineffective. They’re just not a good way to teach,” Reay said. “Picture the Ohio State football team going to a lecture about how to beat Michigan and then going to play Michigan without ever practicing.” Reay said he thinks it’s important for students to actually do things in lecture. “Sitting there is not only a bad learning experience; it’s boring,” he said. Reay, who said about 20 percent of the physics department has used clickers, said he used them to ÿnd out how well his students understood concepts before moving on. He included questions in his lecture slides that could be answered anonymously by his clicker-carrying students. “Sometimes it helps the students realize well before the next quiz that, ‘Oh, you know, I don’t actually get this concept,’ and so it helps alert the students to gaps in their own knowledge,” Victoria Getis, director of the Digital Union, said. The Digital Union has run several workshops for instructors about clicker use and will host a conference in May. In 2005, the university standardized audience response software. A commission, which Reay co-chaired, established guidelines for clicker use. Before the guidelines were established, professors who used clickers often used different brands and software, which had varying levels of efÿciency.
The commission advocated for radio frequency models because they had a longer range, and also recommended utilizing one type of software so students would not have to buy different clickers for each class. The university partnered with an Ohio-based company, Turning Technologies, LLC. Rob McMillen, eLearning consultant with Ohio State’s Learning Technology, said standardized use allows the university to provide adequate support and to keep track of software and hardware updates. The software has been downloaded on 380 classroom computers and is also available in computer labs. McMillen said the software was provided for free by Turning Technologies, but the university did pay $99 for each radio frequency antenna installed in classrooms. Some instructors require their students to buy clickers for their classes. They are sold in campus bookstores for about $40. They are also available to instructors on loan from Classroom Services. Besides making large lectures more interactive, McMillen said the clickers also help students feel
Man accused of cracking window at Buckeye Donuts A man broke the front window of Buckeye Donuts on North High Street early Friday morning, the store’s manager reported to police. According to the report, the man told the store owner that he didn’t mean to crack the glass and that he was just trying to get the attention of his friends inside the store. The manager called the police to ÿle a report, but said he wanted to give the man the chance to pay for the window. However, while an ofÿcer from Columbus Police was driving the man home, the alleged window-breaker said that he didn’t break the glass and that it was already cracked when he knocked on it. The manager of Buckeye Donuts said he will take the case to court if the man does not pay. Student cited for public urination An Ohio State student was cited when police found him intoxicated and urinating on a busy sidewalk early Saturday morning. According to reports, William R. Maddox III, 18, was urinating at the corner of East Lane and Indianola avenues at 12:01 a.m. when police found him. Police: Man assaulted ofﬁcer A Toledo resident was arrested and charged with assaulting a police ofÿcer who was breaking up a ÿght Saturday morning near W.G.

more comfortable sharing their opinions. “Whether it be a class of 30, or a class of 700, many individuals are reluctant to provide their opinion and raise their hand. So what a clicker can do is really break that down,” he said. For instance, students can respond to questions about political or religious beliefs simply by pressing a button rather than raising their hands and possibly being singled out. Reay cautioned that clickers do not solve all problems. He said students tended to have negative opinions of them if they are only used to gauge attendance. He also said they could be overused as well. He likened them to cake icing, noting that too much or too little could spoil the cake. For instructors, learning how to ask the right kinds of questions for students with clickers is key, Getis said. She said that instructors are most curious to learn how to ask questions “that will actually lead you somewhere in the classroom rather than implementing the technology just for the technology’s sake.” Despite OSU standardizing the software, Getis and McMillen agree that they remain under-utilized on campus. Getis said she didn’t think enough instructors knew about them or the support that is offered in getting started. “People are still discovering the Digital Union, let alone clickers,” she said. Turning Point software can also be downloaded on students’ smartphones and laptops, essentially turning them into clickers. McMillen said this could be the next step in making their use more widespread. Getis predicts that if more classrooms adopted the clicker technology, “that you would not see an instructor standing at the front of the classroom lecturing for the entire class period with no interaction from the students; that you would see students involved, engaged, giving feedback, working together.” The Digital Union is hosting workshops Feb. 5 and Feb. 12 about clickers.

A story about student managers on the men’s basketball team (“Titus, Peters lay foundation for basketball managers,” Monday, Jan. 11) quoted former student manager Danny Peters about his experience. The quote read: “It is crazy to think how far Mark [Titus] and I have come,” Peters said. “Playing on this team is a dream come true.” This quote did not actually come from Danny Peters, but rather from Andy Keller, a friend of OSU basketball’s notorious prankster Mark Titus. When the Lantern reporter asked Titus for Peters’ contact information, he gave him Keller’s phone number, and Keller conducted the interview as if he were Danny Peters, according to a recent podcast from Titus’ blog.

gets backing from board Trustee Jo Ann Davidson referred to Shkurti as “one of the unsung heroes” of OSU, a sentiment that was echoed by other board members. Shkurti was presented with a rocking chair as a retirement gift, and then addressed the board. “I face this moment with mixed feelings,” Shkurti said. “I’m looking forward to retirement … but I really enjoyed the time I’ve been here at the university.” Chatas said his biggest challenge as the new head of ÿnances would be “ÿlling Bill’s shoes.” Shkurti will serve as CFO until his retirement, and afterward as an adviser to Gee on state ÿscal policy on a part-time basis. The ofÿce of the CFO has also been restructured following Shkurti’s retirement announcement last March, with non-ÿnancial functions shifted to the Ofÿce of the Senior Vice President for Planning and Administration.

Moves from 1A
Move is demoralizing to students, says art administrator
“I feel like the university doesn’t care about art students as much as science students,” said Glover. “I’m also paying 10 grand a year. There needs to be some fairness here.” The three arts departments in Haskett Hall — Photography, Print-making and Art and Technology — will move to Hopkins Hall, on the North Oval Mall. These programs have space and equipment needs best served by a more “industrial building” like Hopkins, Nini said. “It can more easily accommodate ventilation systems and mechanical systems that have to come along with the areas of art,” Nini said. Some art programs in Hayes Hall and Hopkins are being forced to move. The new accommodations may not meet the needs of the other art departments, some department chairs say. “It’s a blow to the morale of the students and the faculty that we’re unnecessary, that our needs are not being prioritized,” said Andrew Shelton, chair of the History of Art department, one of several departments that are moving. The department is moving out of Hayes Hall in June and into Pomerene Hall as a temporary location. “Pomerene is a beautiful building,” said Shelton. “But it is a bit dilapidated.” John Roberts, interim dean of the Colleges of Art and Humanities said the quality of the temporary space is important only if a department has to spend several years there. “Right now we have not been able to ÿnd the permanent part, and so what makes sense as the swing space can’t be determined,” Roberts said. Although Shelton said he understands the complications involved in the moving process, he is still concerned about its effects. “We’re sad,” said Shelton. “We’re devastated to lose Hayes Hall. The thing that I worry most about is recruiting faculty and grad students.” Roberts has assured department heads that the university is trying its best to accommodate all their needs.
EcoCAR from 1A
Team’s next competition will take them to Arizona in May
The OSU EcoCAR’s two electric engines, combined with a third engine that runs on ethanol, will allow the vehicle to run in different ways. “You can drive with just electric power, you can drive with the engine providing electricity, or you can run straight off the engine and be boosted by the electric motors,” said Schacht. “When the car runs out of battery, the engine will provide power.” The Snap-On representatives were met by several team leaders on the EcoCAR project and given a tour of the center prior to the presentation. “It’s really important to us that younger people are understanding
“History of Art and Art Education are in the same situation,” Roberts said. “Our ultimate goal is to ÿnd a ÿnal place for them, a permanent home for them that would be a space that used better design for their uses than the space they are actually leaving. Right now we don’t know where that would be.” JOHN ROBERTS The likely swing spaces are Smith Lab, which was built as a physics lab, and space inside Ohio Stadium. There is also a chance that the swing space would be in Sullivant Hall, which is being renovated. The best scenario, as Shelton said, would be to stay in Hayes Hall. But he knows that isn’t an option. “I am conÿdent that John PAUL NINI Roberts and the people at [Facilities Operations and Development] are working to accommodate our needs as much as possible,” said Shelton. Shelton’s story is one felt throughout the ÿne arts. The departments now in Haskett are moving to the newly renovated Hopkins Hall. Those in Hopkins, such as the design department, are displacing those in Hayes. “We will basically be taking the space vacated by Andy Shelton’s department, History of Art, not through our choice, but because it is what we are being told to do,” said Nini. “We feel bad about that, of course.” Nini added that their department at least knows where they are going, unlike many of the other art departments.

our brand. That’s one of the reasons we got interested in the EcoCAR challenge,” said Ben Brenton, chief innovation ofÿcer at Snap-on. “We’re trying to make sure we have a better relationship with the people who build and design cars so we can make better tools,” he said. Although the OSU team already had a supply of tools on hand with which to begin the project, those included with the Snap-On toolbox provide an added dimension, said team leader Beth Bezaire, a secondyear masters student in mechanical engineering. “In addition to the tools being insulated and protected, the tools are orange, and bright orange designates high voltage,” said Bezaire. “Usually we take whatever tool we’re designating as our high voltage tool and wrap it in orange electrical tape.” The team’s next competition will take place in May, when the car is shipped to the GM track testing facility in Yuma, Ariz. Schacht and his crew say they are on schedule, and will be ready to compete in the spring.

VANCOUVER, Canada — While past Olympics have been magnets for protests over issues such as aboriginal rights in Australia and oppression in Tibet, the Vancouver Winter Games are preparing to host one of the biggest displays ever of organized opposition to the Olympics themselves. Building on years of disgruntlement over the increasingly corporate nature of the Games — and widespread alarm over a projected $5.6 billion price tag — a resistance network has vowed to post thousands of protesters outside venues, some of whom aim to disrupt the events. Canadian ofÿcials, however, have promised to give the demonstrators as much leeway as possible. That open door re° ects not only British Columbia’s tradition of tolerance and commitment to free speech, but also an acknowledgment of Vancouver residents’ reservations about hosting the Games, the infrastructure for which will probably take years to pay off. In recent weeks, politicians and small-business owners have been among those raising questions about whether the two-week event, which begins Friday, can possibly be worth the large public expenditures, trafÿc disruptions and environmental damage. An array of groups with individual agendas will descend on Vancouver, much as they have during other high-proÿle events like World Trade Organization and G-20 meetings: North American aboriginal groups that claim the games are being hosted on unceded “stolen land.” Conservationists alarmed at the construction of the 62-mile Sea to Sky Highway connecting the city to the skiing venues at Whistler. Opponents of tar sands oil development in northern Canada. Anti-poverty activists
who say the Olympics have further marginalized Vancouver’s poorest residents. They will join under the umbrella of the Olympic Resistance Network, which has been organizing the effort through its Web site, olympicresistance.net. “The goal is to … make clear to the world and to other residents in Canada that the Olympics are not all they’re hyped up to be — and to highlight the increasing number of Canadians who believe the Games have a lot more negative impact than positive,” said Harsha Walia, a spokeswoman for the network. The protesters are united, Walia said, by the perception that the Olympics “industry” is beneÿting a few while ignoring the needs of citizens who might have been helped by the money being spent to host the Games. According to the Vancouver Organizing Committee, the ofÿcial operating budget is $1.65 billion, with a total venue construction cost of $542 million. But that doesn’t include the $825 million cost of expanding the Vancouver convention center, which will serve as the media headquarters; the $748 million spent on the Sea to Sky Highway; and the 11.8-mile, $1.9 billion new light rail line from Vancouver International Airport, a portion of which was paid for by a private partner. Those projects, government ofÿcials said, were planned anyway and will be long-term resources for the province. “Thank goodness that we have such a spectacular facility that will drive economic activity for years into the future,” British Columbia Premier Gordon Campbell said during the convention center’s grand reopening in April. Campbell predicted that the Olympics would bring $10 billion in economic beneÿts to the province. Ofÿcials have persisted in predicting at least $4 billion in beneÿts, including tourism.

student voice Rude, disruptive and obnoxious: Stop texting LANTERN Columnist
On Dec. 3, 1992, a young engineer named Neil Papworth sent the first text message, a simple “Merry Christmas” wish to his colleagues. More than 17 years later, the popularity of text messaging has soared. Students, grandparents, and even young children have become infected with the text messaging craze. Many Ohio State students have become so addicted to this activity that they will text while in tanij a smoo t class. email@example.com Texting during class can be extremely distracting to other students and should not be permitted unless there is an emergency. While sitting in the very front row in a large lecture, I was sidetracked by a young man sitting right beside me. As I was trying to pay attention to the professor, the student was plugging obnoxiously at his phone, playing games, texting idiotic jokes to a friend and not taking any notes during the lecture. I couldn’t help but be irritated. No matter how hard I tried to focus, I was ultimately distracted by this student’s rude and disruptive behavior. I just wanted to snatch the phone out of his hand and stomp on it. With large lectures and hundreds of students to keep track of, many professors and teacher assistants have began to tolerate poor class decorum. Some educators feel helpless and have adapted a lax attitude towards text messaging. Some professors reckon that the student is responsible for his or her education, and if the texting student misses out on important information in class, it is his or her own fault and only that particular student suffers. What some of these educators fail to realize is that by tolerating texting in class, some of the more attentive learners become distracted, thus hurting their learning experience as well. Is that fair? To all the students who indulge in this inconsiderate behavior: knock it off. As bored as you may be, your text messaging is disruptive and disrespectable to those around you, including your professor. The professor cannot and should not have to monitor your behavior at all times, so it is your responsibility to be considerate and courteous to those students around you, even if you do not find the lecture or the professor to be particularly fascinating. Unless it is an emergency, keep the cellular in your pocket and focus on your education; that’s what you’re here for.

‘Big Shots,’ big winnings The Big Lots “Big Shots” contest usually showcases a little bit of humor and fun on the basketball court. Rarely do the fans experience basketball greatness. Anyone who has ever participated in the contest knows that winning the grand prize is a long shot. In Austin Hylander’s case, the long shot went in. I was battling heavy eyelashes in front of the television when I heard that, for the first time, a kid made the shots and had won a year’s worth of free tuition. I was always under the impression that the contest was nearly impossible to win. Then, like in an E! “True Hollywood Story,” an article appeared in The Lantern the following week saying he did not make the shots in time. Instead of draining them in the allotted 30 seconds, it actually took him 36. The online video proved the
brad miller email@example.com
claim. However, the first thing that caught my attention wasn’t the clock, but the people who were rebounding the balls and throwing them back. Every time I had seen the contest the shooter had to retrieve his or her own misses, which obviously makes the task much more challenging.
But I got over that quickly and began thinking about the clock. It must have either not started on time, stalled in the middle or refreshed every time a shot hit the rim. At first I thought Ohio State might have Big Ten big shot referee Eddie Hightower enter Hylander’s home and wave off the bucket. Oddly, nothing like that happened. Then it became obvious that this was the best way this thing could be handled. Imagine the public relations nightmare that would have blossomed had they taken the prize away. As it stands, Big Lots has probably been mentioned more in the past two weeks than in the previous year combined. This controversy has taken a temporary, feel-good story and extended it another week. I think Austin Hylander deserves the money. First, had it
not been for that jittery opening lay-up, he would have shot an impressive 45 percent. He almost shot a better percentage behind the arc than the Michigan men’s team. Had his makes been converted to points, he would have outscored 17 of the 23 players that competed in that night’s women’s game. Every player that did outscore him played more than 20 minutes. Austin scored nine points in 36 seconds. I’m sure Austin Hylander now has friends he never knew he had. This is without question a positive story, though I do feel bad for the next person who participates in the contest. Not only will it be a tough act to follow, but the time will probably be monitored to the nanosecond to ensure that mistake does not repeat itself.
Obama should talk to public directly It’s been more than a year since Barack Obama stepped into the White House as the 44th president of these United States. His election was a historic one, not just introducing the nation’s first AfricanAmerican president but also in changing the way campaigns would run from here on out. The true genius of Obama really emerged during his campaign; no one expected their team to so artfully transform campaignhany rashw an ing, taking it online and in turn firstname.lastname@example.org thoroughly engaging millions of youths who would have otherwise not paid any attention to the presidential race. Such a transformation can’t be understated. In fact, the last time someone shook up politics this much, it was 1954 and John Kennedy was introducing America to our first televised presidential debate. In many respects, the ailing 1954 Richard Nixon is eerily reminiscent of the sickly 2008 John McCain. In both elections, it was the transformer who strongly won. How someone who was in such an envious position can now be experiencing a 51 percent approval rating might come off as a surprise to many, but in reality, is surprisingly obvious. Obama is suffering from the worst nightmare a politician can experience — he’s lost touch with the American people, his constituency. Don’t panic yet though because I still think that, no pun intended, there’s still hope that Obama can soon change. Thomas Friedman, Pulitzer-winning author and New York Times columnist, recently compared the current state of the U.S. to a patient who just started feeling better after an intense bout in the intensive care unit. Just as he starts to slowly sit up, all the doctors around him (representing dear Washington) suddenly start fighting and throwing equipment around. The patient asks what any sane human being would: “Are you people crazy? Aren’t there any adults here?” The problem is that the patient is right; there are no adults around. In Washington, the general absence of adults is normal and the lack of maturity is more-or-less expected. As a people, we expect our politicians to be self-serving, selfish and at times even border-line corrupt. Our everyday speech shows it and this anger and frustration is
Whither collegiality? The quotable, or at least memorable, Rodney King said it well: “Can’t we all just get along?” Simplistic? Naive? Yes, and yes. But in every simplistic utterance there is a grain of gravitas, a scintilla of sense. There was a time when we collectively recognized the hyperbolic assault against a referendum, the ad hominem attack on a public official, and were at least embarrassed by the ruckus. Today we seem to enjoy the blur between civic engagement and entertainment. We need more of that old-time taste and restraint in our public discourse. We need to call out the Glenn Becks, Rush Limbaughs and Keith Olbermanns, those on both sides of the political fence whose vitriolic vehemence, and in-your-face expostulation poisons true dialogue. We need to return to some sort of civility. Call it simple good manners. When a fellow can announce in the well of the U.S. Congress that our president is a liar, and get away with little more than a slap on the wrist, we’ve lost something. When the same individual sees his campaign coffers fill to overflow in an affirming response the following day, our once-cordial system of give and take is Missing In Action. When a prominent leftwing TV personality assaults the listener, his staccato delivery mindful of a runaway beer truck, a reasonable viewer might ask who he’s trying to convince; his audience or himself?
An old, and quite appropriate maxim comes to mind: “Emotion high; intelligence low.” Watching those TV shouting heads, it certainly seems to be true; their product is more heat than light. Recently several members of our Congress elected themselves into retirement. Similar explanations were offered. The once collegial, engaging, productive atmosphere of political give-and-take has vanished, replaced by a corrosive, virulent form of rigid, ideologically driven attack mentality that serves no one. The atmosphere has become toxic, and those good people, a few from both sides of the aisle, are calling it quits. That’s a shame, but who can blame them? We’ve been a centrist society since our founding, ever wary of excursions too far removed from that center. It’s almost as if this moderate middle is now mute, sidelined and bemused by a kind of freak show at the margins lacking only the popcorn and barkers at the turnstile. If it were not so dad-blamed corrosive it’d be amusing. We have no need for a “Pollyanna” mentality, either; our nation’s current opportunities are manifold, and no amount of optimistic dismissal or denial will help. We have real problems, which is why, more than ever, we need the engaging power of the two-party system that used to serve us so well. Ironically, what we don’t need is a concerted, automatic agreement on any issue big or small, but a return to the considerate, contemplative atmosphere that is characterized by respect for other views, and the possibility of learning something from exposure to a contrary belief. If nothing else, we can always agree to disagree. But let’s make 2010 a year in which we, the constituents, demand more civility of our leadership.

Gov’t parties are too polarizing

translated into numbers when we poll, as it is right now with the 111th Congress’ dismal 18 percent approval rating. So, what really changed? Well, we supposedly elected an outsider as our president last November. Obama, perhaps in light of his congressional inexperience, constantly campaigned by labeling himself as an outsider. He’s not a part of Washington and we just happily gobbled all that up, truly believing that our constant political disappointments might finally stop. He wooed and won the hearts, minds, and votes of millions based on his extremely social campaigning, showcasing his honest and direct messages. That’s what we need again. If Obama should focus on just one misstep of his administration, it’s this: The president’s strengths are in taking complicated issues and boiling them down for us, or as Friedman calls it, talking to us like adults, “making us smarter rather than angrier.” Instead of paying heed to the politically unstable Washington, forget those middlemen and deal directly with us, Mr. president. We are the true power-holders in the United States, even if it doesn’t seem so 99.9 percent of the time. The prowess you so elaborately demonstrated during the campaign should only be repeated now in your administration. We then will be responsible for keeping those corrupt, selfish, self-serving politicians in line. After all that, if they still demand to be divisive, ignorant and useless, we can simply use said powers to end their legislative careers during their re-election. And at that time, we would be more than happy to do so.

More to blame than the coach
After 59 games, Blue Jackets head coach Ken Hitchcock was ÿnally ÿred. For many, it comes as no surprise. For others, Hitchcock was a scapegoat for guilty parties all around. But if you know anything about last season’s playoff berth and this season’s continued disappointment, Hitchcock’s departure should seem like a long-overdue farewell. Ultimately, the problem lies herein: When you build a program enough to ÿnally reach the playoffs, you send a message to fans and the NHL community that you’re becoming a legitimate team that can be taken seriously. Yes, the Jackets are a newer program among teams with long-standing histories. Yes, the Jackets have the right to build a program for a few years and work out the kinks. No one holds that against any new team starting from the ground up. But once you make it to the playoffs, it’s like a signal to the executives and stakeholders in the NHL that maybe you’re ready to be a respectable contender in

After being ﬁred by the Columbus Blue Jackets, coach Ken Hitchcock said he isn’t planning on immediately returning to coaching.
What’s next for Hitch? JOSHUA A. DAVIDSON Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org With Ken Hitchcock having been dispatched by the Columbus Blue Jackets, the question remains: What’s next for the Edmonton, Alberta, native? The immediate answer is the Olympics. But as far as a future coaching position in the NHL, the answer isn’t so clear. “My focus right now is obviously on the Olympics,” Hitchcock said in a press conference last Thursday. Hitchcock will join Red Wings coach Mike Babcock’s staff coaching the Canadian team. The Olympics in Vancouver will be Hitchcock’s third stint with the Canadian team, having coached them in Salt Lake City, Utah, in 2006 and Nagano, Japan, in 2002. Following the Olympics, there’s no doubt teams will be interested in Hitchcock’s services. The stoic 58-year-old has 500 career wins as an NHL coach. Hitchcock has also led three teams to the playoffs, including a Stanley Cup Championship in 1999, when he was coaching Dallas. However, Hitchcock isn’t sure he’ll jump back into coaching, as he did after being ÿred twice previously. After being let go by Dallas, Hitchcock immediately joined forces with the

displayed his stunning ability to beat defenders with his ball handling, quickness and body control. At times the Schottenstein Center crowd erupted and at others they were left in awe by the Player of the Year candidate. “You probably saw about what he is,” Iowa coach Todd Lickliter said. “It’s not unique to us, what happened. He’s tough to contain. I’m going to state the obvious here, but when he was out they were a good team

the Buckeyes and several other teams are jockeying for position. “It’s wide open and that’s why you really have to take care of business on your home court,” junior guard Jon Diebler said. “It wasn’t the prettiest game, but we won.” Junior guard Evan Turner led OSU with 32 points, seven rebounds and ÿve assists. Turner was 12 of 22 shooting, and didn’t commit any turnovers. It was the most shot attempts Turner has taken in his career. Several times, Turner
If only Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez would have been born a few years later. The neighborhood home run king and future Los Angeles Dodger from “The Sandlot” could have avoided years of backyard stickball. These days, scouts clamor over teenagers with that much talent. By the age of 12, Rodriguez could have inked a full ride to the school of his choice. Coach Lane Kifÿn arrived at his new school, USC, just in time to land one of the top recruiting classes in the nation last week. But Kifÿn didn’t waste any time in locking up future classes either; he offered 13-year-old David Sills from Bear, Del., a scholarship. Just after placing the ÿnishing touches on his 2010 recruiting class, Kifÿn turned his attention to his 2015 group. Before the frosty, bleached tips of Sills’ hair could dry, the seventh-grader had locked up his collegiate future, though even he seems perplexed by the ridiculous ordeal. “This is so crazy and out of nowhere,” the 5-foot-11-inch “phenom” said. Plenty can happen in ÿve years. Five years ago, Jack Bauer was busy capturing and interrogating terrorists. Five years ago, Tiger Woods was happily married and faithful to his wife, Elin. Well, maybe. Five years ago, Ohio State was sitting near the top of the college football world after defeating Notre Dame 34-20 in the Fiesta Bowl. Just ask Buckeye Nation, three BCS Bowl Game losses later, about how much can transpire over the course of half a decade. Five years from now, Sills may have thrown
The word accountability seems simple enough to deÿne. If you are in charge and things start to go south, you will be called upon for an explanation. If that explanation isn’t good enough, accountability may demand that you pay with your job. In a sports franchise, it’s often difÿcult to ascertain precisely where blame lies. Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson said there were plenty of responsible parties for the regression this season’s team has shown from its playoff form a year ago. “We’re all responsible for the performance of this team this season,” Howson said during Wednesday’s press conference announcing coach Ken Hitchcock’s ÿring. “Management, players and coaches.” Howson’s seemed to lay blame equally across all facets of the organization. And yet the only person left holding the pink slip at the end of the day was Hitchcock. Much was made of Hitchcock’s tendency to overload his younger players with information and punish them for their

in contention for Big Ten title but when he came back it was elevated to one of the best in the nation.” Turner got help from the usual cast of Buckeyes, including Diebler with 12 and Sophomore guard William Buford and junior forward David Lighty with nine apiece. For the most part, most everything that was done by the Buckeyes went through Turner. The Buckeyes and Hawkeyes battled much of the ÿrst half. Much like the top of the Big Ten
race, the ÿrst half was highly contested with neither team asserting themselves. Late in the ÿrst, however, the Bucks had a sequence that turned the momentum in their favor. The Buckeyes led 28-25 when Iowa’s Cully Payne had a free lane to the hoop for an uncontested dunk before Lighty caught him from behind and timed a block perfectly to reject the ball out of bounds. After stealing the ball on the ensuing possession, Turner found Buford, who hammered the ball home as the crowded exploded. Ahead by ÿve going at halftime, the Buckeyes used a
9-2 run after the break to push their lead into double-digits. Turner scored 20 of his 32 points in the second half as OSU put the game away early. OSU didn’t have its greatest game shooting, going only 2-13 from behind the arc, but the Buckeyes’ mistake-free basketball allowed them to control the game. OSU has played smart of late, averaging 6.5 turnovers in their last two victories. With the Big Ten championship now truly up for grabs, the Buckeyes are playing their best basketball and have arguably the best player in the country. For a team that looked as if the season
could get away from them early, OSU and Turner, who have won their last seven Big Ten games, are looking dialed in. “It’s cool to see the ball go through the net,” Turner said about getting into a zone. “For a moment, you feel unstoppable. You feel like you can do almost anything. You’re attacking and not being attacked and that’s good in anything you do.” Turner’s return to form has elevated the Buckeyes. If he can lead them through another rough stretch of four road games out of the next ÿve, he and the Buckeyes could both be celebrating some prestigious
accolades, including a Big Ten championship. “If there’s one out there better than [Turner], then I look forward to seeing him,” Matta said. “He’s playing really well right now.” Turner and the rest of the Buckeyes are playing well, and with less then a month left in the Big Ten, OSU is starting to do exactly what it needs to do at exactly the right time. “I’ve got faith this team can do anything,” Turner said. “We control our own destiny. We decide what goes on. If we stay focused and play Ohio State basketball, we can do anything.”

Five years from now, Sills may be married to his high school prom date and have three kids, choosing to forgo college and obtain a 9-to-5 job in order to support his family.

Woman behind the scenes: Walker makes most out of senior season
Ohio State 86
Penn State 73
JOSH JORDAN Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org Senior Andrea Walker has seen it all in her four years playing basketball at Ohio State, but this season has been her most productive yet. Walker has already matched or surpassed her highest career output in rebounds, points and assists with six games still remaining, but her stat line won’t be compared with the best players in the nation. Walker has played backup to two of the best centers in OSU history while on the team: Jessica Davenport and junior Jantel Lavender. “I don’t really care about minutes. As long as our team is winning, I’m happy here,” Walker said. “I think that I’ve gotten better playing against the best centers.” Walker’s 6-foot-5-inch frame allows her to dominate smaller players while on the ° oor, but it also helps her to push Lavender to the brink in practice to help her get better. Sometimes, it can become a little more than just a practice. “I think there have been days where me and [Walker] get really physical. We get mad at each other sometimes,” Lavender said. “I think we make
each other better everyday … because we always play each other hard.” Walker also has to play the role of senior, one of only four on the team, to help get OSU through the tough times of the season, like the past couple weeks. She does so not only with her words, but also her play, as she recorded 28 minutes and 15 points, her highest totals of the season, in OSU’s 67-62 loss to Indiana on Jan. 31. Walker has really been part of the rise of OSU women’s basketball. Since her freshman year, OSU has had 100 wins and 19 losses and has made the NCAA Tournament each year. Her freshman and sophomore years, OSU was ousted in the ÿrst round of the NCAA Tournament, but in her junior year they advanced to the Sweet 16. Although she doesn’t make headlines, her team feels that people don’t understand how good she really is. “I think people don’t give her enough praise and attention. I think she’s long and can block shots,” Lavender said. “People don’t give her enough attention as far as recognizing her abilities to defend the post and alter people’s shots. She can score in the post just as well as anybody.” Walker has had better averages in almost every statistical category since starting Big Ten play, one of only a few players on the team to do so. The Buckeyes will need her production to continue as they enter a tough stretch in their schedule over the next ÿve games when they face Purdue, Wisconsin and Michigan State. OSU lost to Purdue once already and didn’t put away Wisconsin or Michigan State until late in the game when they last played.

to meet raised expectations
taking over the helm for NHL team for the ﬁrst time
the league. The next season should be a step forward, not a jog a mile back. Last season the Jackets went 41-31-10 in 82 games for 92 points. That’s an adequate showing for a team that was ÿnally breaking through. The Jackets boasted 11 shutouts and were only shut out six times. They ended the season fourth in the Central Division and 16th in the League out of 30 teams. That’s not bad, especially when the Western Conference houses a majority of the best teams in the league. At the time of Hitchcock’s ÿring, the Jackets were 23-27-9 with a total of 55 points on the season. While they’re 13-9-5 at home, they’re a disappointing 10-18-4 on the road. If that’s not enough, they went 2-9-5 in December and only 7-7 in January. Now, you might be thinking, the season isn’t over yet and it’s too early to criticize and compare. But you have to take into account where they stand compared to last year. In the Western Conference, the Jackets are 14th out of 15 teams. In the league standings, they’re 26th out of 30 teams. They currently sit nine points out of a playoff spot in conference. Can we say “letdown?” But here’s the real kicker. While 18th in the league in goals for, the Jackets have fallen apart in the defensive zone, ranking 29th out of 30 teams in goals against. For a coach that is known for his defensiveminded planning, to be 29th in the league is ridiculous. An even bigger indicator of a downward spiral is attendance. While the recession plays a role in diminishing numbers, after a playoff berth, there is hype for next season. Ticket sales should go up. But out of 27 home games this season, 16 of them have amassed crowds of less than 15,000. That’s 60 percent of home games pulling in less than 80 percent of seats. With 85.7 percent attendance last season, the numbers show another downturn in Blue Jacket enthusiasm. While Steve Mason’s presence in goal has been dismal this season and the overall effort by the players is lacking, change needs to happen. General Manager Scott Howson said this season has been disappointing all around for fans and the responsibility rests with management, coaches and players. But after announcing Hitchcock’s departure, he explained the most obvious reason. Hitchcock “earned and received the opportunity to turn things around this season,” Howson said. “But unfortunately that has not happened and it has become apparent that change is in the best interest of our organization.” Change. An example would be when Philadelphia Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren decided to ÿre coach John Stevens in late November. The team was 13-11-1 and had 27 points on the season. For a team expected to perform well throughout the regular season and compete for the Stanley Cup, .500 hockey was simply unacceptable and a change was necessary. Holmgren brought in Peter Laviolette to replace Stevens, and although the ÿrst few games under Laviolette showed no immediate response, in the past few weeks the Flyers have caught ÿre and are now in the playoff picture. For the Jackets, change is something they need to end the season on a different note. Howson said the necessary change wouldn’t come from trading or releasing players or uprooting management. For Hitchcock, his old-school style of coaching seems to be failing in an ever-changing, fast-paced age of hockey. To keep up, the Jackets made a change. A change for the better.
mistakes. Sports vernacular refers to such players as “kids,” so it’s understandable that the general public forgets that they are grown men, usually millionaires, and thus responsible for their own actions. If they quit on Hitchcock, and it’s becoming increasingly obvious that they did, where was the leadership in the dressing room? Where was team captain Rick Nash, or assistant captains Mike Commodore or Antoine Vermette to give a spark to the “kids?” Aren’t they the ones out on the ice turning over the pucks in their own zone and then laying down in times of adversity? Some may gloss over such a move as fatalism. The history of professional sports is replete with hair-trigger coaching changes. Hitchcock is now the 23rd coach to be ÿred since June 2008. That’s a turnover margin of 76 percent in a span of a little more than two years. No other sector of society could possibly survive that kind of business model, but in the world of pro sports it’s almost considered a given. Coaching changes such as this offend my sense of rationality. The coach brought in as a stop-gap replacement never has the samecaliber skill set as the one he is being asked to replace. In fact, the best example of the last time a coach was replaced mid-season with someone with a star-caliber track record was when Hitchcock took over for Gerard Gallant in the 2006 season. Hitchcock’s resume contains an overall record of 534-350-88, six divisional titles and one Stanley Cup Championship. Those credentials, even if he never coaches another game in the NHL, should be good enough to land him in the Hall of Fame. The man replacing him on an interim basis, Claude Noel, is assuming his ÿrst role as head coach in the NHL at the age of 54. He was a long-time head coach in the American Hockey League before taking an assistant’s position with Columbus in 2007. How can this be deemed progress by any level of measurement? Howson also harped that management was desperate to see Hitchcock succeed and gave him a very long leash. The problem with that rationale is that all the heavy lifting was already over. The Jackets had already been through the gauntlet of an unbalanced early-season schedule and were coming up on an extended home stand against some of the weaker NHL teams leading into the Olympic break. This would have afforded Columbus with some home-cooking in Nationwide Arena as well as some time for key players to recover from injuries. Now that the Jackets have won their ÿrst two games sans Hitchcock, as teams with newly ÿred coaches are wont to do on a short-term basis, it has become a self-fulÿlling prophecy. The vultures who have been calling for this move for some time now will sit back smugly and say, “I told you so.” In a season in which the playoffs have already faded like an ephemeral dream, what harm could have come from allowing Hitchcock to ÿnish out the season and then make a measured evaluation of the entire campaign? The man who cleaned up the mess left to him by Doug MacLean’s regime and led the team to its ÿrst playoff appearance deserved better. Howson’s words sounded like he thought so too, although his actions spoke vehemently otherwise. “He is an excellent coach,” Howson said. “He came to an organization in disarray and he’s leaving it in much better shape. He brought structure, credibility and legitimacy. He played a huge role in getting us to our playoff berth last season, and for that we are grateful.” Now don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

Ken Hitchcock didn’t get a chance to hoist the Stanley Cup with the Jackets, but he might remain with the organization as an adviser.
Coach from 1B
Hitchcock could stay in Blue Jackets organization as adviser
Philadelphia Flyers. And similarly, when he was cut loose by the Flyers, he was quickly picked up by the Jackets. But this time around the veteran Hitchcock says it might be different. “I’m not going to jump at the ÿrst job opportunity,” Hitchcock said. He went on to explain that he’s been in almost every coaching situation, from Stanley Cup contenders to teams building from the ground up. This time, Hitchcock says, the scenario would have to be perfect. “I think if it’s the right situation I would like to look at it,” Hitchcock said. But he also said he’s not rushing into anything, due in part to his connection to the Blue Jackets organization. “I feel a very personal obligation to the McConnell family and [Jackets president] Mike Priest,” Hitchcock said. “I have a contractual obligation, but it goes beyond that with Mike and myself. I feel like I started something here.” Hitchcock’s contract runs through 2011-2012, during which time he is due $1.33 million per year. But as he said, his ties are deeper than that. It’s believed Blue Jackets management will look to retain Hitchcock as an adviser if he doesn’t ÿnd work elsewhere this season. While that might create an awkward situation for all involved, a management position might be appealing to Hitchcock. “The next move I’d like to make is an organizational one,” Hitchcock said. “I don’t want to just be a coach. I’d like a long-term relationship.”
