Buckeye Village parking cost dropped from original estimate Parking @ buckeye Village

michele Theodore Copy chief Some Buckeye Village residents worried about paying a price more than a month’s rent for a parking pass can breathe a sigh of relief. About a month after Buckeye Village residents were told parking would no longer be free, the price of a parking pass at the complex has been lowered by nearly $500 after residents protested the changes. Rent, however, could be raised in 2015-16. Residents received an email Thursday from Interim President Joseph Alutto stating parking passes for Buckeye Village are to cost $150 for the 2014-15 academic year. Parking fees of either $402 or $620 yearly were originally set to be required for the 2014-15 academic year, a change residents were informed of in an email Feb. 17 that stated “parking no longer will be included as part of the Buckeye Village housing contract.” Buckeye Village is located across the Olentangy River on Defiance Drive near Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium and features family housing apartments through the university, intended for OSU students with spouses or children. Many residents at Buckeye Village protested the parking increases, saying the new parking passes included lots away from the complex that were too remote. “What they were asking before was just really ridiculous,” said Leslie Vasquez, chair of Buckeye Village residents’ council and fourth-year in public affairs. “If most people drove to campus and wanted those parking privileges of the Lane Avenue garages and C parking, then it makes more sense, but for the most part, people just want to be able to park near their homes and take the bus over. “That was just the main issue right there … that we were being charged for privileges we didn’t want.” In Spring Semester 2013, a similar announcement was made and residents were initially told they would have to pay more than $600 for a pass. After some residents signed a petition protesting the changes, however, the university announced parking would remain free for the 2013-14 academic year. Alutto’s email Thursday stated “a new parking

Residents (are) concerned that people with A, B and C passes are still going to be able to park here,” Vasquez said. “That’s just been a concern in the past because of our children, just having people we don’t know parking here. Leslie Vasquez Chair of Buckeye Village residents’ council

The new parking permits are for Buckeye Village residents exclusively, but A, B and CPN pass holders will be permitted to park in the complex’s lot, except during “the approximately 40 major events that occur at the university,” according to the email. Residents had expressed concerns about an overflow from parking for events, such as football games, when there are more cars on campus. Vasquez said some are concerned about people with other passes parking at Buckeye Village for other reasons as well. “Residents (are) concerned that people with A, B and C passes are still going to be able to park here,” Vasquez said. “That’s just been a concern in the past because of our children, just having people we don’t know parking here.” Vasquez said communication will likely continue,

as she was also concerned for families that have more than one car and might need more than the one pass allotted for each unit. “I’ve already asked for some clarification and I’m sure that we’ll continue to talk with the university and get the clarification that we need,” she said. The changes were announced after a meeting between two Buckeye Village residents and the Council of Graduate Students president and university officials. Rent has been set at $655 per month for a two-bedroom apartment and $515 for a one-bedroom apartment for 2014-15, down $30 each from the 2013-14 rents. Alutto said, however, “the 2015-16 monthly rates will be raised by a maximum of $10 per month.” Vasquez said overall, she was happy with the changes. “It feels so good and I really want to get focused on schoolwork,” she said. “It’s taken a lot of time and energy, so I’m glad that we got where we are.”

“One day, I was in a grocery store owned by a Lebanese-Algerian couple, and I loved the lady’s accent.” Rebecca Byrne, a third-year in Arabic and linguistics, said she asked the woman what she spoke and when the woman told her Arabic, Byrne asked her to speak some more. “What I heard next was the prettiest thing I’d heard in my life. I thought it sounded powerful and smooth,” Byrne said. The interaction inspired Byrne, who already had an interest in language and culture after taking high school French classes, to want to learn more about Arabic and ultimately led to her to majoring in it at Ohio State — a university that graduates 7 percent of the United States’ Arabic majors. “Arabic is not an easy major and takes special determination to complete,” said Gergana Atanassova, a lecturer in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, in an email. Atanassova said she isn’t surprised OSU graduates 7 percent of the country’s Arabic majors “given the size of the university, the considerable Arab diaspora and Muslim population in Ohio and the high caliber of the students that OSU attracts.” Byrne also said she was not surprised because “most colleges don’t offer Arabic as a major itself.” There are currently 39 colleges that offer an Arabic major, according to the College Board website, which allows users to search for colleges that match one’s interests or needs. Other Big Ten schools that offer Arabic majors, according to the website, include Michigan, Minnesota and Michigan State. Approximately 223 million people speak Arabic in the world, according to Ethnologue: Languages of

Behind-the-scenes OSU offense to have ‘different little taste’ in 2014 moves transform Schott for concerts, sports eric SeGer Sports editor

logan recker, a third-year in sociology, takes apart the basketball court at the Schottenstein center march 25 to transform the arena for monster Truck nationals, which are set to be held march 29.

Andrew Todd-SmiTh Lantern reporter When it comes to prepping the Schottenstein Center for crowds, Ohio State’s most valuable player isn’t an athlete: It’s a team of maintenance personnel. As the home of OSU men’s ice hockey and men’s and women’s basketball, the Schottenstein Center serves as a versatile athletic facility as well as a concert venue. But when the sounds of cheering and the band playing “Buckeye Battle Cry” are done echoing through the Schott’s rafters, a lesscelebrated team shows up to prepare the building for the next event. That team is Mike Hollon’s conversion crew. Hollon is the Schott’s full-time conversion coordinator and is in charge of the group that makes these vital transformations happen, sometimes late at night. Whether it’s the hockey-to-basketball conversion — which involves breaking down the curved corner portions of the boards that support the glass and form the ice rink’s boundary, laying down the insulated flooring layer and then assembling the hardwood court on top of that — or vice versa, Hollon said it’s mostly students doing the work on his crews. “Probably 90 percent of my staff are students,” Hollon said. “The ones who aren’t students have either graduated and worked for us as students whose jobs are in Columbus, and they do this part time for some extra money.”

As the Ohio State football team continues its trudge through spring practice, position battles abound across the team. With the loss of players like Corey “Philly” Brown from the wide receiver corps and Carlos Hyde from the backfield, inserting a new brand of playmakers and expanding the roles of those already in coach Urban Meyer’s system is likely to prove vital in replacing the team-leading 771 receiving yards from Brown and 1,521 rushing yards Hyde tallied in a season that ended in backto-back losses. Meyer said Tuesday that the offense is going to have a “different little taste to it” than it did a year ago as a result. “It’s going to be a different … we’re going to have to lean on some perimeter ways of getting first downs and all that,” Meyer said. “Where, last year when you rushed for 300 yards a game, it’s because that offensive line. We have other weapons.” But the process of filling those voids left by Brown, Hyde and a powerful offensive line is going to depend on guys like senior wide receivers Devin Smith and Evan Spencer, as well as younger guys like sophomore running back Dontre Wilson, freshman wide receiver Johnnie Dixon and redshirt- freshman wide receiver Jalin Marshall. “We got a lot of guys, not just me and Evan with experience. We got guys like Dontre that are really stepping up, that’s talented,” Smith said Thursday after OSU wrapped up its seventh practice of spring. “Johnnie Dixon is another guy that came in that really turned some eyes. We got a lot of guys around us that can help us and so you know we are just hoping that these young guys dive in the playbook and get better each and every day.” Much like last year with Wilson, a lot of buzz has been generated with the additions of younger players like Dixon and Marshall — who is set to miss time with a knee injury but be back for summer workouts. But expect to see Wilson’s role expand, too, after now having a full year in Meyer’s offense. Wilson said at times last year he felt like a “decoy” within the offense. “I just didn’t feel like I was that involved. Basically most of the plays I was pretty much just faking and fly sweeping and the defense would bite and we would throw it downfield,” Wilson said. “So yeah, I felt like a decoy. But now, things have changed so

Then-sophomore running back dontre wilson runs the ball in a game agains Purdue nov. 2. oSU won, 56-0. now I’m getting my chance and I’m making the best of it.” Wilson said he is the primary punt and kickoff returner on the team now with Brown gone, but he’s also planning on having more of a role in the offense. “I wasn’t as comfortable (last year) but now I feel comfortable and I feel like me again” Wilson said. “Getting a lot more opportunities to make plays.” While the offense is looking to replace players like Brown and Hyde in search of the same amount of production it had in last year’s 12-2 campaign, the defensive line is looking to buy into what new defensive line coach Larry Johnson’s selling. Doing so will help build off a solid season one year ago. “Not necessarily a feeling out period, it’s a trust period,” Johnson said Thursday. “To really develop a trust … and right now they’re reaching back. And that’s really great to see.” A player who Johnson said is making great strides so far in the spring is junior defensive end Noah Spence, who is suspended for the first two games of the 2014 campaign for reportedly testing positive for ecstasy. “Really pleased with his effort on the

field and off the field,” Johnson said of Spence. “He’s doing great in the classroom so I think Noah’s all about business. He wants to be a great player, and great players work hard and work through adversity and that’s what he’s doing. I think it’s been really good to see that.” Johnson said he plans to have eight or nine players in the rotation at defensive line, looking to keep players as fresh as possible with how the majority of college football teams have moved to a spread, high tempo offense. But to do that, you’ve got to be in shape and willing to go hard every play, senior defensive lineman Michael Bennett said. “He just wants us to go 100 percent to the ball every play,” Bennett said Thursday. “But with coach Johnson, he wants us running all the way until the ball is on the ground. He wants strip sacks, not just regular sacks, just little stuff like that. He’s really adamant about going until the whistle blows and then getting back on the line and not being tired.” The Buckeyes are set to take on Navy Aug. 30 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Kickoff is set for noon.


campus Glenn School hosts presentation on crisis in Ukraine Andrew Todd-Smith Lantern reporter Though the protests in Ukraine are half a world away, the director of the Ohio State John Glenn School of Public Affairs and a doctoral candidate at the school have firsthand experience with the conflict. Glenn School director Trevor Brown said he has been involved for almost 20 years with an initiative funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development through the State Department that has helped Ukraine establish democratic practices dating back to 1994, when its autonomy from the former Soviet Union was still in infancy. Rudy Hightower, on the other hand, is a retired Naval intelligence officer and a doctoral candidate researching national security policy at the Glenn School, with a focus on regional security issues in the Black Sea region that borders the Crimean peninsula, Ukraine and parts of Russia. The two co-hosted a presentation at Page Hall Thursday evening, in which they addressed the political and economic status quo in Ukraine. Protests in Ukraine began in November and are a product of East-West tensions, which have pitted those who relate more to Europe against those who are closer to Russia.

Schottenstein from 1A Hollon said the arena’s bowl has an ice rink in it continuously between the months of August and February, which gets covered and insulated to accommodate other events. He said a typical conversion job takes a crew of 25 to 30 people, including the supervisors, and the crew needs about five to five and a half hours to convert the ice hockey rink to a basketball court. The reverse process takes a team of the same size about three and a half hours, he said. Colton Everett, one of the conversion crew supervisors and a 2013 OSU alumnus, is one of Hollon’s part-time workers. “(Converting from) basketball to hockey is easier because you tear more down than you build up,” Everett said. “Concerts are easy because the space is so empty.” Mike Damas, director of engineering and housekeeping at the Schottenstein Center and Hollon’s boss, said the conversion budget for fiscal year 2013 was about $150,000. Damas said paying the wages for the part-time workers — 68 of whom work under Hollon — accounted for $55,000 of that, and the remaining


In November, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych decided not to sign agreements with the European Union that would have strengthened ties between Ukraine and the EU, which showed he preferred to have stronger ties to Russia. Russia has a long history of influence over Ukraine, as Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union until 1991. Many Ukrainians have a desire to move away from that legacy and make their nation more like those of Western Europe. Hightower said during his presentation he had been in Kiev, Ukraine’s capital, in December when hundreds of thousands of protesters were demonstrating in the city’s central Independence Square. “We both have spent a lot of time in country, boots on ground,” Hightower said. “I was there during the Euromaidan demonstrations. Two weeks before, they had some of the violence.” The Euromaidan demonstrations were protests against Yanukovych’s rule. Hightower said he “was there walking amongst all the protestors and barricades” during a more peaceful phase of the demonstration process, before the violence resumed in January and the first deaths took place, leading up to a coup at the end of February. Hightower emphasized how receptive people on the street were toward him, saying that the mood

Trevor Brown, John Glenn School of Public Affairs director, spoke on the political and economic status of Ukraine at an event held in Page Hall March 27.

$95,000 went toward materials and the cost of maintenance and repairs. “We’re self-funded at the Schottenstein Center. If we don’t make money off the events, we don’t have a budget,” Damas said. Damas said the Schottenstein Center falls under the Office of Business Advancement, which governs the facilities on campus that generate their own revenue and aren’t funded by the university. “The four main units of (the Office of) Business Advancement are, obviously, the Schott, the Blackwell hotel, the Fawcett Center and the Drake Performing Arts Center,” Damas said. “We have a zero-base budget, and we don’t get state money or money from students.” A staff of about 15 supervisors, six or seven of whom are present at any given conversion job, aid Hollon in delegating tasks to workers upon their arrival. Hollon said the basketball court is made up of 15 rows of 14 4-by-8-foot rectangles of hardwood that get joined together in an offset pattern similar to a brick wall. A 4-by-4-foot end cap is used on the 14-piece rows to make sure the court is rectangular instead of having jagged edges. Hollon said he trains supervisors to take smaller

teams of people to work at the arena’s north, south, east and west corners to portion up the job. “They show up and sign in with security and then go to our storage space and get tools or gloves or whatever they need,” Hollon said. “Then the supervisors will split up and take their guys to each corner and get to work.” Hollon said, though, the job isn’t predictable. “When we interview someone for a position in the building, we ask them, ‘Could you have something completely unexpected drop in your lap?’ We have to be prepared for everything,” Hollon said. He said occasionally, when equipment they use or something in the arena needs to be repaired for them to finish the job — whether it’s an electrical issue or something involved with the water system used to both create and melt the rink ice — the crew has to be flexible and maybe work a little later than they expected to. He also said the experience level of the team determines how quickly a job gets done. He said if relatively new personnel are working on any given night, that can sometimes lengthen the crew’s shift at Schott as the new people learn the ropes and get hands-on training from supervisors.

He said the number of times the conversion is done depends on the time of year. “The job is more seasonal, just like school because that’s when the teams are in season … concerts are usually the last thing to get scheduled, sometimes about two months ahead of time, sometimes longer,” he said. “But concerts get a really small (turnaround) window because obviously, the three athletic teams in this building take precedence.” Everett said the positions can put a strain on students’ schedules. “Going into it, you know. You have to plan out accordingly,” Everett said. “We had one guy who worked until 7 in the morning and then went straight to a midterm from here.” Brice Schroeder, a third-year in criminology and a supervisor, said the overnight jobs can make life difficult. “Usually you know what you’re getting yourself into,” Schroeder said. “If you have an 8 a.m. (class) after a long job, though, you may need to skip that one.” Hollon said it’s a tiring job, but he enjoys it. “It can be taxing. But I love it, I’d rather do this than an 8 to 5 every day,” Hollon said. “It’s exciting, and no day is ever the same.”

Arabic from 1A the world. According to U.S. Census Bureau data, about 952,000 people in the U.S. were speaking Arabic at home as of 2011. Natalie Davis, a second-year in Arabic and public affairs, is from the Cleveland area and first took Arabic in high school. She said she narrowed her college search based on which schools offered an Arabic major. “Arabic is the main reason I chose to come to Ohio State,” she said. Davis said she loves studying Arabic, but it has its challenges, including there only being a small number of professors. “While it seems significant on a national scale, the program here is still very small,” Davis said. Atanassova, who teaches first and second-year Arabic language courses, said her classes usually have about 25 students. Justin Acome, academic program coordinator for the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, said there are currently three full-time, either with or pursuing tenure, faculty members that teach Arabic, but the program hopes to have five next year. “The majority of our language and lower-level undergraduate classes are taught either by graduate teaching associates or lecturers,” he said. Davis said her goal is to teach in the future. “I had the (opportunity to study) Arabic in high school, and I want to ensure that more American students have that opportunity,” she said. Byrne, on the other hand, is unsure of what she wants to do, but plans on pursuing a master’s degree in the language.

“After that, I don’t know. There are lots of things I could do. I could teach high school Arabic, go into data analysis for diplomacy or intelligence, work with refugees, become a translator — I really have no idea,” she said. However, she said these careers differ from what people first expect. “Most people immediately assume that I am going to be a spy when I tell them (my major),” Byrne said. Atanassova said studying Arabic could help students pursue careers in various areas from government to social work. “Knowledge of Arabic today opens doors to many exciting and often lucrative careers,” Atanassova said. “The Arabic major at OSU equips the students not only with the language proficiency they need for such jobs, but also with the necessary information about the history, culture and politics of the region.” Davis said while her chosen field has its challenges, “it’s entirely worth it.” “Twenty years from now, the U.S. will be much better off in regards to teaching critical language, and I guess more than anything, I love being part of the movement to get to that point,” Davis said.

Faculty reflect on OSU College of Medicine’s 100 years Shay Trotter Senior Lantern reporter There were 36 students who entered the first class at the Ohio State College of Medicine, at a time when medical education was just starting to be linked to universities. One hundred years later, it has become a fundamental part of OSU’s identity. The college’s faculty has seen its share of changes, as well, and some employees have been able to participate in much of the school’s progress firsthand. Dr. Christopher Ellison has been working in the College of Medicine since 1976. He currently serves as a distinguished professor and vice dean for clinical affairs, but has worked his way through a number of positions since he originally started as a resident in training. Ellison said it’s difficult to define a particularly memorable moment in his time with the college, simply because he’s been fascinated by its growth as a whole. “It’s expanded tremendously and the quality of the medical school has gotten better and better over time,” he said. “It was always very good, but now it’s noted as one of the top medical schools in the United States.” OSU’s medical school was ranked No. 29 for primary care and No. 34 for research by U.S. News and World Report’s 2014 medical school rankings. Prior to the 1900s, almost anyone could open a medical school, said Dr. Daniel Clinchot, vice dean for education for the OSU College of Medicine. Clinchot said a nationally-recognized educator by

Ukraine from 2A reflected that the Ukrainian people he spoke with “just want to have a normal life.” Brown said the Parliamentary Development Project he has been a part of is a long-term investment by the U.S. government and that change is gradual, especially after fractious events like the Russian invasion of Crimea, the collapse of the Ukrainian government and the referendum earlier this month that Crimea used to secede from Ukraine and join Russia. “We know from our own experience here in the United States that the democratic experiment goes on. It takes a long time, it takes multiple generations to build commitment to democracy,” Brown said. Brown and Hightower took questions from the crowd of about 100 people who attended the policy talk, which took place in Page Hall’s Leadership

The OSU College of Medicine is celebrating its centennial this year. the name of Abraham Flexner helped to reform medical education by stating that it should be part of university institutions. It wasn’t until 1914 that the medical school, then called the Starling Ohio Medical College, was officially recognized as a part of OSU. William Means was named the first dean and he “had the ultimate desire to see in the city of Columbus the best school of medicine that could be gotten and that a part of the Ohio State University,” according to a May 1915 issue of The Lantern.

One noticeable change to the college since its founding, Clinchot said, has been its student body. In a Sept. 29, 1914, article of The Lantern, it was stated that “a class of 36 well-trained students is of sufficient size to develop class spirit, individual enthusiasm and to call forth the best efforts of the teachers.” Since then, classes have grown in numbers and diversity, Clinchot said. “Over time, the percent of women and underrepresented students increased dramatically,”

Education Center. They addressed concerns about Europe’s dependence on Russian fuel, the likelihood of Russian president Vladimir Putin invading other surrounding territories and the ramifications that could result from the U.S. imposing economic and political sanctions on Russia. Glenn School spokesman Hank Wilson said in an email Wednesday the event didn’t cost anything as both speakers are affiliated with the school, meaning there were “no speaker fees or room fees.” Some students said they expected more detail from the talk in general, but that they liked the concluding Q-and-A portion specifically. “I thought the question-and-answer session was, I would say, by far the most informative,” said Devin Grammon, a second-year graduate student in Spanish and Portuguese linguistics. “They gave an overview of everything, but I guess what I was

expecting was a little more in-depth contribution and kind of analysis, specifically … (about) the options that are on the table.” Grammon said having studied in Russia about 10 years ago makes him a little more curious than the average student “about the cultural kind of context” of events going on there. Cynthia Johnson, a fifth-year in OSU’s historical linguistics Ph.D. program, agreed that the forum for public discussion was enjoyable, in addition to hearing about Hightower’s observations in Ukraine. “I appreciated the look inside, the pictures, the experience he (Hightower) had over in Ukraine during that time. It was great. But I really liked the dialogue between the audience and (the presenters). They had a lot more to say,” Johnson said. Bill Welch, a third-year in political science, economics and math, said he enjoyed the

Clinchot said. “Right now we’re close to half and half men and women in the class, and our underrepresented students make up 20 percent of the class, which is really progressive when you think about the history of the make-up of medical classes across the country.” Class sizes now stand at about 200 students a year, Clinchot said. Ellison and Clinchot agreed the curriculum’s evolution over the last century has set the college apart from other medical schools. “Their innovation in terms of curricular development has been spectacular,” Ellison said. In the 1970s, a three-year medical school curriculum was implemented, Clinchot said. Since then, the curriculum has been redesigned in a number of ways, including starting students in clinical work in their first year, something that previously had not been done. The basis for many of these changes, Clinchot said, was the goal of graduating its students with the ability to be successful in many aspects of medicine. “That was the vision,” Clinchot said. “To provide Ohio with physicians, so to care for patients, but to also bring the scientific aspect and the discover aspect to produce physician scientists.” Those changes will continue in the areas of technology, facility expansion and biomedical research, Clinchot said. Ellison said he’s optimistic about what can be achieved as the college continues to move forward. “We need to reflect on the past and build on the future,” Ellison said.

presentation by Hightower and Brown as well. “I thought it was really informative overall. I thought it was really interesting, especially with Hightower’s intelligence background,” Welch said. “Kind of a different side to think about the development aspect because usually we just hear, it’s just about Crimea. So I guess I just found it really fascinating.”



someone is Looking for You There IS a superior intelligence “out there” -- and a loving one too. Your creator greatly desires for you to acknowledge Him, and to come to know Him and His ways. Don’t be deceived by evolutionism. All creation screams of intelligent design! The mathematical odds of DNA alone evolving are virtually nil. Evolutionism is the only “science” that violates the laws of thermodynamics right from the start, and is not based on any observation. God exists, and the Bible is His Word. What is unique about the Bible? For one thing, it is the only book with fulfilled prophecy. Check it out yourself! For starters, try (current situation) Psalm 83 and Zechariah 12; (reformation of Israel after nearly 1900 years) Isaiah 11:11-12, Isaiah 43:5-6, Isaiah 66:8, Jeremiah 16:14-15, Jeremiah 31:7-10, Amos 9:9-15, Ezekiel 34:12-31, and Ezekiel 36; (crucifixion/ suffering of Christ) Psalm 22 and Isaiah 53; (future situation) Zechariah 13:7-14:21. “Too hard to read and understand” you say? Try the KJV/Amplified parallel bible (book) or KJV/Amplified/Complete Jewish parallel bible (, and for a strict literal translation from the originals try Young’s Literal. “It’s all in how you interpret it” you say? The Bible, despite numerous transcribers over hundreds of years, is remarkably consistent, and interprets itself. Our creator is the actual author (2Peter 1:1621). Beware of modern, liberal translations from “the higher critics” which seriously distort the Word! Finally, if there is a God, why is there so much evil? We have rejected God, and now see what it is like to live in a world where God has permitted us (temporarily) to rule ourselves. Give up your lusts, and come to God and follow His ways (Jude 1:18-25). All that this world has to offer is as nothing compared to what He has in store for those who love Him (1Corinthians 2:9, John 14:15)! Friday March 28, 2014

The Raminator is set to be featured in the Lucas Oil Monster Truck Nationals March 29 at the Schottenstein Center.

HAYDEN GROVE Asst. sports director at BuckeyeTV Rev your engines, ladies and gentlemen, because the Monster Truck Nationals are barreling toward Columbus for the last stop on their “Monster Nite Out” tour. “Basically, it’s just destruction and madness and lots of noise,” said Emily Boden, marketing manager for the event’s promotional firm, Family Events. “It’s a crashin,’ bashin’ good time.” With an assortment of five vehicles weighing more than 50,000 pounds altogether, the Lucas Oil Monster Truck Nationals are set to take over the Schottenstein Center Saturday, but it won’t just be the cars taking center stage for the evening. In addition to the behemoth vehicles performing wheelies, racing and even getting some air around the arena there will also be a live concert, a cash-grab machine and a party outside the arena with country singer Brandon Maddox, prior to start the event, Boden said. According to Family Event’s website, Maddox with perform a new song called “Bigger the Wheels” at the show. In the Monster Truck Nationals tour, there is an ongoing competition between the cars that, Boden said, is determined by points for things such as racing wins or best stunt. Over the season, the points are tallied until a “champion” is crowned. As Saturday’s stop in Columbus is scheduled to be the last of the season, the crowd at the Schott will get to see Mike Hall, driver of the “Raminator” car, be crowned as this season’s champion. “It feels real cool to be a champion, I’ve got to be honest,” said Hall, who clinched his championship crown before heading to

Columbus. “You work real hard all year long — it takes pressure off and you don’t have to worry about points heading into the final show. It’s going to be a lot of fun.” Hall explained his early love for monster trucks and said doing these shows is the best thing in the world. “When I was a little kid, I loved trucks and tractors,” Hall said. “I was in Indianapolis when I saw a monster truck for the first time in real life and that was the coolest thing ever. I was hooked ever since. I never really grew up and that’s why I always tell everybody I have the best job in the world.” After explaining his experiences with monster trucks as a child, Hall said the Monster Truck Nationals have something in store for everyone. “The trucks appeal to everybody,” Hall said. “Kids think they’re big toys, then you have gear-heads who love the mechanics, and finally, you have outsiders who just can’t help but be taken away by the size of these monsters. Everybody loves these things for different reasons.” Dave Redelberger, the director of interactive marketing for the Schottenstein Center, echoed Hall’s excitement for the family atmosphere of the Monster Truck Nationals. “Over here at the Schott, we get pretty excited whenever the Monster Trucks roll in,” Redelberger said. “The smiles on the kids’ faces when they hear those engines rev for the first time is something we look forward to every year.” The Monster Truck Nationals is set to begin at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the Schottenstein Center. Tickets for the event cost $20 in advance on Ticketmaster, or $23 the day of the event.

[ a+e ] Grouplove to bring ‘creative, eclectic’ mix to C-Bus stage MADELINE POEDTKE Lantern reporter Four bands are set to converge at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion Saturday to bring alternative rock to the annual CD 102.5 Day. That goal of music cohesion is the same that the concert’s headliner, Grouplove, said they had during their unlikely formation six years ago. In 2008, Grouplove’s vocalist and guitarist Christian Zucconi met keyboardist and vocalist Hannah Hooper in New York City. Just days later, Zucconi accepted Hooper’s invitation to travel thousands of miles to an artist retreat, according to the band’s Facebook biography. At the retreat, Zucconi and Hooper met guitarist and vocalist Andrew Wessen, bassist Sean Gadd and drummer Ryan Rabin. Wessen, a California native, said the artist retreat took place in a “ridiculously beautiful” mountain village on the island of Crete, Greece. He said upon arrival, the five strangers were naturally drawn to each other. “We met each other on a level where we were the people we wanted to be. We didn’t have the weight, when you know someone forever, there are certain patterns you get in and certain predispositions,” Wessen said. “We all met in a really magical place and kind of just fell in love with each other as the people we wanted to be in our lives.” When the summer came to an end, the future members of Grouplove went their separate ways. “We all kept in touch and we still had really good communication,” Wessen said. “Sean flew out from London and hung out with Hannah and Christian in New York in fall 2009 and then they all drove across the country here (California).” Reunited in southern California after one year apart, Wessen said the group decided to record music in Rabin’s parents’ garage. “It just happened very organically and the next thing you know, everyone was living at Ryan’s parents’ house in three weeks and (we) didn’t leave,” Wessen said. “We got like seven or eight songs and, unknowingly, the EP was done but we really had no intention of ever actually being a band. It was still in this phase ‘just for fun.’” There was a turning point once Grouplove’s current manager, Nicky Berger, posted the group’s songs on a few blog websites. Wessen said attention started coming toward the project and that it “was a really exciting time.” “We originally were called ‘Group,’ which goes back to when we were in Greece and we were riding around on little scooters and we’d all just be like, ‘We’re the group, we’re the group!’ and we’d just yell that,” Wessen said. After officially deciding to become a band, Wessen said he quickly realized the name Group would be impossible for people to find and promote. “The first thing that popped in everyone’s head — I don’t know who said it first — was Grouplove, and once everyone said it, we were like ‘Yeah, it’s positive, it’s bold, we all believe in love.’ It just made sense and that was the name. It just stuck,” Wessen said. Grouplove released a self-titled EP in January 2011 and before releasing their debut full-length album “Never Trust a Happy Song” in September 2011. Their second single, “Tongue-Tied,” reached No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart in June 2012 after being featured in a 2011 iPod Touch commercial. “There’s so much creativity in the band that it’s scary. I think we’re just

There (are) already a million songs just waiting in the wings.” Grouplove released its second full-length album “Spreading Rumors” in September 2013 and Wessen said that he and his bandmates were able to live in a house and create the album with “no other obligations at all.” “(Our sound) is the byproduct of five very different people coming together from all over the world and we get a real creative, eclectic mix of styles and influences because, to all of us, our worst nightmare is an album where 12 songs sound the same,” Wessen said. Wessen said he attributes Grouplove’s success to being proactive with continuous touring and songwriting, adding that the band hasn’t taken a “real break” in three and a half years. “We have no intention of stopping and I think that, also, just giving everything we have in our live shows,” he said. “We lay it all on the line when we play.” Katie Tippy, a second-year in marketing, said she stumbled upon Grouplove’s music by chance. “I first heard of (Grouplove) when their song ‘Itchin’ on a Photograph’ came on my Cage the Elephant Pandora station,” she said. Tippy said she won’t be able to attend Saturday’s show but she is looking forward to seeing Grouplove perform at Lollapalooza, an annual music festival held in Chicago. “I’ve never been to a concert before so I’m excited to see them there (at Lollapalooza),” Tippy said. Scheduled to open for Grouplove are the bands MS MR, Skaters and

Andrew Wessen Guitarist and vocalist for Grouplove The Orwells, as part of CD 102.5 Day: Side A, presented by Columbus radio station CD102.5. Lesley James, a DJ at CD 102.5, said the radio station aimed to keep ticket prices low at $5, and they were sold out within 90 minutes of release. “We’re stoked. Our fans are stoked. The lineup features a mix of up-and-comers along with established acts,” James said. “We’re ready to celebrate this Saturday.” Doors open at 5 p.m. LC Pavilion is located at 405 Neil Ave and the concert will be indoors.

Cut Copy surpasses expectations with dance-infused show

JACOB HOLLAR / Lantern reporter

Taco Bell located at 1525 N. High St. The chain debuted a breakfast menu March 27. RITIKA SHAH / Asst. photo editor

Frontman Dan Whitman of Cut Copy performs at Newport Music Hall March 26.

MATTHEW LOVETT Asst. arts editor The expectation I held for Cut Copy’s concert at the Newport Wednesday wasn’t an exceedingly high one. Given that the Melbourne disco-rock troupe is touring in support of an album titled “Free Your Mind,” which dons a piercingly blue cover with text filled with a gradient of radiating rainbows, I had a preconceived notion the set was going to be a trite mess of overblown psychedelia, both in the band’s performance and ambiance. Luckily, that was not the case. Frontman Dan Whitford led a composed concert, serving as an audience maestro of sorts; whether he was raising his arms, fist pumping or inciting a clap-along, it not only seamlessly coincided with a particular song’s rhythm but also proved he is his own hype man. Where other bands might wait for breaks in a song to interact with the audience, Whitford had the right idea all along. With only mild shifting in his arm position, Whitford triggered club-like frenzy (as on songs “Free Your Mind,” “Hearts on Fire” and mostly every other song for that matter) and “Kumbaya”-esque sway (“Walking in the Sky” and especially “Where I’m Going”). All of this illustrated that Whitford is a well-rehearsed frontman with a finesse in connecting with a crowd, and the rest of the band was equally on point. Artists that showcase a sound even slightly electronic seem to be typified, perhaps erroneously so, into being druggy in their concert atmosphere. Once again, “Free Your Mind” as a title in Cut Copy’s case doesn’t help matters. On the contrary, save an audacious handful, audience members appeared largely

clear-headed — a rarity at most shows. This gives more credit to Cut Copy and Whitford as performers; the aforementioned frenzies were authentic, not the kind that might be stereotyped at EDM festivals or an early-morning set at Bonnaroo. To be clear, Cut Copy is by no means electronic dance music in what has become the traditional sense. Besides the fact the group uses electronic timbres, this band is more in line with New Ordermeets-Deerhunter than, say, Pretty Lights. The light show, an otherwise overlooked aspect in some concert experiences, worked very much to Cut Copy’s advantage. Rather than ominous dark lights, the lights pursued illumination and were orchestrated well with the sonic performance. Highlights of the light show were during the set’s last two songs pre-encore, “Meet Me in the House of Love” and “Lights & Music,” where the backdrop was likened to being in an extremely violent storm on a Doppler radar. Cut Copy excelled in raising intensity and energy, and even though the songs were performed predominantly in the same format (each song heard a pitter-patter of little beats in its introduction, only to turn into an all-out storm at its climax) throughout the set, the band surpassed every expectation this reviewer had anticipated in its show. “Need You Now,” one of the band’s most iconic pieces — and arguably one of the best tracks of 2011 — closed out the night as the most eagerly-awaited song (like waiting for Pixies’ “Debaser”). The crowd’s aura and reaction were imperative to the entertainment quality of Cut Copy, and, in a sense, it was this song that represented just that. As the title of this tune might indicate, Cut Copy needs us as urgently as we need it. The concert the Newport housed Wednesday serves as a case in point.

Taco from 5A people want. “Our customers have asked us to do breakfast because there’s a sea of sameness in breakfast sandwiches,” Brian Niccol, president of Taco Bell, was quoted as saying in USA TODAY. Peterson said Wedneday he had not heard of plans for the supposedly customer-solicited foray into breakfast to include a breakfast version of the company’s Doritos Locos tacos. Color me disappointed. Breakfast at Taco Bell will generally begin at 7 a.m. and last until 11 a.m., but hours can vary from store to store.

Johnson bringing different mindset to D-line James Grega Jr. Lantern reporter When former Ohio State defensive line coach Mike Vrabel left the Buckeye staff to join the Houston Texans, many wondered if OSU could successfully replace such a polarizing figure. According to its players, OSU has done just that. Larry Johnson, who coached at Penn State from 1996-2013, has made a positive impression on the players he coaches. “It is just a different attitude,” sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa said Thursday after practice when comparing Vrabel’s style of coaching to Johnson’s. “Their technique is all similar. He is more positive, I dare say.” Bosa, who had a breakout freshman year in 2013 — tallying 7.5 sacks, tied for the team lead — said he responds better to Johnson’s uplifting style of coaching. “Coach J is super positive, he is never really tearing anyone down,” Bosa said. “The coaches have been much more positive in trying to coach and make us better.” Teammate and fellow defensive lineman, junior Adolphus

Washington, agreed with Bosa and said Johnson has been encouraging the players to succeed. “What is unique about him is that he is always a motivator. He is going to tell you what to do and he is going to show you how to do it and he is going to motivate you to do it,” Washington said. “Instead of using an angrier approach to it, he uses more of a teaching approach.” Johnson said he wants his players to understand the love he has for football as well as showing them the right way to play. “My deal is about passion. I want my guys to see the passion in how I coach. And that’s in my room, off the field and every area of their lives,” Johnson said. “I bring the same intensity, but I’m also teaching at the same time and getting them (to) understand my passion for the game and to feel that.” Despite only being in Columbus for a few months — OSU officially announced Johnson as part of its staff Jan. 16 — Johnson said his players are beginning to buy into what he wants them to. “They’ve got to trust me. I tell them all the time once they drink the Kool-Aid, we’re ready to go,” Johnson said. “Understanding 4-6

Members of the OSU defense line take part in a drill during spring practice March 20 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

Shelby Lum / Photo editor

Junior midfielder Turner Evans (5) works around a defender during a game against Notre Dame March 25 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU lost, 13-7.

Senior defenseman Joe Meurer is looking for a spark. Looking to finish its three-game home stand on a high note, the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team (2-6, 1-0) is set to take on the Jacksonville Dolphins (1-6, 0-1) Saturday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. After starting the home stand with a conference win against Bellarmine, located in Louisville, Ky., OSU fell Tuesday to No. 7 Notre Dame, 13-7. Despite keeping Notre Dame close for the majority of the game, the Fighting Irish used a five-goal run to finish the fourth quarter and preserve the victory. However, Meurer said the Buckeyes are putting the Notre Dame game behind them and focusing on getting a much-needed win against Jacksonville this weekend. “We need anything right now to give us some kind of a spark, some kind of momentum,” Meurer said. “We got two out-of-conference games and then we are hitting the ground running with the rest of our conference games. So we definitely need this win and just a confidence boost at this point.” Junior midfielder David Planning said the Buckeyes offense simply needs to generate some chances in order to be effective against Jacksonville. “It’s just getting back to the basics: catching, throwing, moving the ball fast and taking good shots,” Planning said. “We want to get over 35 shots, and the more shots we put up the better chance we have of scoring.” OSU has only hit the 35-shot plateau once this season, in the first game of the season Feb. 9 against

then-No. 11 Johns Hopkins in a 10-9 triple overtime loss. Jacksonville and OSU played against each other for the first time ever last season, with the Buckeyes walking away with a 9-6 win Feb. 17, 2013, in Jacksonville, Fla., as part of the Moe’s Southwest Grill Classic. OSU coach Nick Myers said with both teams trying to get back in the win column — Jacksonville has dropped two-straight — but it is important for the Buckeyes to play smart lacrosse and not make anything easy for the Dolphins. “They have a great goaltender, a senior, big kid who is capable of getting hot,” Myers said. “Defensively they are athletic. If you look at their ground ball stats, they are averaging close to 30 ground balls per game. And then on the offensive end, they are very athletic in the midfield and they have a couple big-time scorers down in the attack. They are a team that is certainly looking to break out as well and it’s going to be important that we are sound in all facets of the game in order to keep that from happening.” Offensively, junior midfielder Turner Evans has been on a tear lately. The Peterborough, Ontario, native has seven points in the first two games of the current home stand and is currently second on the team with 23 points. Defensively, the Buckeyes are only allowing 9.5 goals per game and have only given up more than nine goals once in their last four games, a stat Meurer is hoping can continue Saturday. “Our motto is ‘next,’” Meurer said. “That’s what the entire defense is going off of right now. We are definitely going to put the Notre Dame game past us, but we are also going to learn from the mistakes we made. Hopefully we can find some success against their (Jacksonville) offense.” Game time is set for 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

Men’s volleyball looks to halt 5-game skid Zoe Chrysochoos Lantern reporter In hopes to bust out of a five-match slump, the Ohio State men’s volleyball team returns home to St. John Arena to take on two Men’s Intercollegiate Volleyball Association teams this weekend. “In order to do well, we can’t have guys underperforming, and I think that has been a main contributor to the slump we are in,” junior outside hitter Michael Henchy said. “We have guys that have played extremely well in matches, but no one has played that well for the entire time.” The Buckeyes have been working diligently to end the skid, Henchy said, and playing together as a team is how they are going to achieve it. “We are a team to beat when we play up to our best potential, but we need every guy on the team to perform at that level,” Henchy said. OSU is scheduled to host Quincy (12-13, 0-9) — a private liberal arts Catholic university in Quincy, Ill. — Friday and Lindenwood (19-6, 4-5) — located in Saint Charles, Mo. — Saturday. Both matches are set to start at 7 p.m. Even though OSU tallied a win against the Lions and Hawks in previous matchups this season, junior middle blocker Dustan Neary said every team improves over the course of the season. Because of that, the Buckeyes cannot go into these matches expecting an easy victory. “We have already beaten them both once. This week in practice we are staying very focused and

working hard. We are not taking any team lightly right now,” Neary said. OSU beat Quincy 3-0 and Lindenwood 3-1 on the road in January. Coach Pete Hanson said the team is ready to play these two matches at its home court, and it will be taking full advantage of the heightened energy and enthusiasm in St. John Arena. “I don’t think we need to go outside the box to create any more strategies to beat these teams,” Hanson said. “We just have to execute better, play at a higher level with more intensity, and do the things we have been talking about all season long.” OSU took into consideration the strengths of both teams during practice this week, and will be preparing for the matches accordingly. The team is expecting a good game against Lindenwood. Quincy however, should be an easy win for the Buckeyes, Henchy said. “Lindenwood is very aggressive — it is going to be up to our passers to keep us consistent and to make sure we control the pace of the game. And for Quincy, I think that our team is ready for them, we have better talent, better work ethic and better effort than they do,” he said. Henchy said although this season it has not shown much, the Buckeyes’ biggest strength is their potential. “We have the ability to do everything at a very high level — we were just lacking the consistency this season,” he said. “I do think that we are a better team than these guys, we had a great practice this week, and I think if we continue that trend, play like I know we can and stay focused, this weekend will be something that our alumni will be proud of,” he Henchy said.

sports Buckeye baseball ready for revenge series against Indiana niCk deiBeL Lantern reporter the chance for revenge can drive any team to push a little harder against an opponent, no matter the sport. that element is surely to be on minds of the members of the Ohio State baseball team this weekend as it is set to take on a team that assisted in ending its chances of playing in the 2013 nCaa tournament. the Buckeyes are scheduled for a weekend series with indiana opening friday, a team they lost to, 11-3, on the second day of the Big ten tournament. OSu lost the next day to nebraska in an elimination game, but a win against the top-seeded Hoosiers would have done great things to help boost the team’s nCaa tournament résumé. after thinking about the loss to indiana all offseason, senior outfielder tim Wetzel said these three games are as big as it gets for the team this year — games that could again be the difference between OSu getting in the nCaa tournament or not. “needless to say, this is the only one that matters. you know we’ve got to win this series. it’s the most important one of the year by far,” Wetzel said. Since the loss in the Big ten tournament, a lot has changed for OSu — including a lineup that features a handful of freshman standouts and an entirely different rotation of starting pitchers. OSu (16-7, 2-1) has won eight of its last nine games heading into the series against the Hoosiers (12-10, 2-1), the preseason favorite to win the Big ten. now with a chip on their shoulders heading into this weekend, Wetzel said the Buckeyes have already proven they’re good enough

OSU won, 10-3. to win this series — they just have to execute. “Last season we lost the Big ten in the last weekend to indiana,” Wetzel said. “But if you go back, we really lost that Big ten (title) in the second weekend against Michigan State when we lost a game on friday night that we shouldn’t have lost, so with that

mindset we need to go out and we need to at least take two out of three, hopefully a sweep.” Sophomore infielder Jacob Bosiokovic got his first look at the Hoosiers last year and he didn’t like the results. He said OSu has to beat teams like indiana to get into the nCaa tournament. “those are the guys that stopped us last year and that’s definitely a bitter taste in our mouth,” Bosiokovic said. “We’re pushing to be a national caliber team and when we get our chance, we’ve got to be ready to go.” among the freshman players on the Buckeyes’ roster indiana has not seen are pitchers tanner tully and travis Lakins and outfielder ronnie dawson. Coach Greg Beals said this is a chance for his team, which is tied for first in the conference with three other teams including indiana, to separate itself atop the Big ten standings. “it’s early but i think every series that you play in conference is kind of a statement series, every series that you get is an opportunity to solidify your spot,” Beals said. the weekend starting pitching rotation for OSu is set to be junior ryan riga friday, senior Greg Greve Saturday and tully Sunday for the second weekend in a row. Since losing the top of its pitching staff last season, riga, Greve and tully worked hard throughout the offseason to prove they were the top three starters on the team, Beals said. “‘We graduated 280-some innings — who wants them?,’ that was the message that was up on the board the whole offseason,” Beals said. first pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m. friday at Bill davis Stadium.


Reds’ core players have much to prove to be playoff contender MaTT HOMan Lantern reporter

Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips lays out for a ground ball during a game against the San Francisco Giants July 24 at aT&T Park. The Reds won, 8-3.

Cincinnati has become accustomed to playoff-caliber professional sports franchises. there was a time in my life i never thought i would be able to write that. But now, the Bengals have made the playoffs three consecutive years, and the reds have qualified for October baseball three of the last four seasons. Sadly, my hometown has learned nothing but hard lessons during that time. the Bengals lost to the San diego Chargers at home during the afC Wild Card round Jan 5, extending their playoff win drought to 23 years. the reds haven’t advanced in the MLB playoffs since 1995. Sure, they teased the fans in 2012 when they were up 2-0 in a best-of-five series with the San francisco Giants. My heart still aches from the three straight losses — all at home — that followed. When the first signs of a playoff game going bad start to show, a noxious

solution of fear and doubt creeps up the spine of every player, coach and fan like an all-encompassing ooze from the murky depths of the Ohio river. die-hard fans begin to succumb to the dark side, muttering to their friends about how they should have seen it coming. it’s a facade presented by teams that consistently give birth to hope before tripping on the umbilical cord, falling and smothering it. this year, i can’t let that happen. Opening day at Great american Ball Park is only three short days away, and i am trying my best not to let my love of everything reds blind my expectations. Cincinnati still has its core group of winners together. the franchise faces, Joey Votto, Jay Bruce and Brandon Phillips, are all-Stars with experience and impressive offensive numbers. the starting rotation could still be one of the best in the national League if Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos, Homer Bailey, Mike Leake and the promising young southpaw tony Cingrani all stay healthy. a key component of the lineup this season will be leadoff man center fielder Billy Hamilton, who is replacing Shin-Soo Choo, now with the

sports OSU tracksters prepare to hurdle from indoor to outdoor season TayLOR CaMeROn Lantern reporter Just as one season ends, another begins. the Ohio State men and women’s track and field teams begin the transition this weekend from the indoor season to the outdoor season, and are expecting a few hurdles with the change. the men’s team is set to travel to nashville, tenn., to compete in the Vanderbilt Black and Gold invitational. although the athletes have been competing since January, associate head coach Brice allen said the transition from indoor to outdoor is harder than it would appear. “it takes some time,” allen said. “it takes the guys about three to four weeks in their training cycle to exhibit their full talent in the outdoor season.” allen compared the first outdoor meet in March to the first meet of the season in January — the Buckeye Classic in Columbus — and said

Johnson from 10A (seconds), a-B, that’s the style we’re going to play here, and once they understand my passion for that and then (i) told them the first day i got here i was going to do the best i can to reach them.” the Buckeyes, who were thin on the defensive line last year, will look to try and develop depth, something Johnson said he is striving to achieve. “there’s not a first group, there’s not a second group — there’s a group of guys trying to get better. and i’ve sold them on that idea that there are going to be eight, nine guys playing who compete,” Johnson said. “it’s not the guy who started the game, it’s the guys who finish the game that are going to make a difference. i think they’ve bought into that and i think that’s what’s really neat.” Johnson wants to bring back the “Silver Bullet” mindset the OSu defense did not seem to have last year, as they gave up 38.3 points per game in their last three games, of which they lost two. He said it’s what OSu is known for, and it is what he wants to get back to. “Great defense … i think that’s what we all feel we’re going to get back to,” Johnson said. “So it’s one focus, one fight, one team and just one idea about being the best defense in the country.”

it is “as if they start all over again.” He is confident, however, that once the team gets back in the swing of running outdoors it can start building for the conference meet in May. “We are going to SEC country (this weekend), so we always want to be competitive,” allen said. “But we also understand that there is going to be some adjustments during the meet.” along with getting used to how different it is competing outside, the Buckeyes are excited to show what they can do in some events that had the winter off. three field events — the hammer and discus throw along with the javelin — are slated to get underway. Other events competing for the first time this year include a 10K race, 4x100-meter relay, 1500-meter run, steeplechase, a 110-meter hurdle race and a 400-meter hurdle race. throwing the javelin, sophomore Bill Stanley is set to see his first action of the 2014 season after coming out of winter hibernation. in the 2013 Black and Gold invite, Stanley set a program record for the javelin throw in his first

attempt as a college athlete when he unleashed a toss of 72.16 meters to finish in first place. the women are also set to make their way south to compete outdoors in the yellow Jacket invitational in atlanta. Women’s distance coach Sara Vergote said the women’s team training hasn’t changed a whole lot as they make the transition into a new season. “this is an opportunity for us to compete in some nicer weather and to get our feet wet in the outdoor season,” Vergote said. Vergote said the work ethic remains the same as the team moves forward, but the its biggest concern is making sure every athlete is healthy before it really gets rolling with the outdoor season. the teams are set to get races underway friday and Saturday at the Georgia tech and Vanderbilt campuses. the men are scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. friday and 10 a.m. Saturday, while the women are set to start at 6 p.m. friday and 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

Bosa said Johnson has mentioned the Silver Bullet mindset around the players and he is trying to develop an attitude about them. “We watch guys that played before us and how hard they played,” Bosa said. “But again, we are focusing on playing hard and just competing against the offense.” the Buckeyes are scheduled to take on navy aug. 30 at noon at M&t Bank Stadium.

rangers. Hamilton is a talented prospect with amazing speed that can change any game at any time, but has yet to go through the rigors of extended time in the majors. He had 13 stolen bases in 13 games with the reds at the tail-end of 2013, and was only caught stealing once. at that rate, if he plays in 131 of the 162 games this season, he will break rickey Henderson’s modern-era record for most stolen bases in a season. Henderson’s 130 steals have stood since 1982. Hamilton and the rest of the club won’t have an easy start to 2014. in the first month of the regular season, they face St. Louis six times and Pittsburgh seven times. Both of those teams made the divisional round of the playoffs last year. Most experts project the Cardinals to win the division, and the Pirates are expected to battle with Cincinnati all season for a wild card spot. injuries only add to the tough april schedule.

pitcher aroldis Chapman being struck in the face by a line drive during a spring training game March 15 will make me cringe until June, but hopefully he will be able to pitch again by mid-May. Chapman, along with pitchers Latos, Sean Marshall and Jonathan Broxton, will start the season on the disabled list. the reds are still a good team, but have yet to prove if they can be great. new pieces like Hamilton and manager Bryan Price could make or break this club. Much like Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, former reds manager dusty Baker took a lot of criticism for decision making and game adjustments, especially during playoff games. Much unlike Bengals owner Mike Brown, reds president Bob Castellini made a leadership change. i’m excited to see how Price handles the lineup and situational matchups. Speculation and “sabermetrics” are a huge part of baseball, but nothing matters until the ump

calls “Play ball!” So we’ll just have to wait and see. When the reds take the diamond at 4:10 p.m. on March 31 for opening day, i’ll be sitting on my couch in eager anticipation. Even with graduation, a job search and midterms hanging over my head, i honestly cannot imagine a better way to spend three hours than watching the redlegs begin their 2014 campaign. Because you can tell me they’re past their prime. you can point to the superior salaries and sustained success of teams like the dodgers or the Cardinals. you can call me crazy or baseball boring for all i care. i’m still going to watch the whole game. and the next game, and the next game — because for some reason, i still believe this team can break the bad streak and win a playoff series in 2014. Even if i’m wrong, at least i’m not a Cleveland fan. for ’tis better to have made the playoffs and lost than to not make the playoffs at all … right?
