Since the beginning of President E. Gordon Gee’s second term as university president, Ohio State Greek life has seen a 73 percent increase in members as of 2011, and Gee said he would like to see those numbers increase even more. Gee has heavily expressed his dedication to the advancement of sorority and fraternity life because of the involvement opportunities it provides, said Sharrell Hassell-Goodman, assistant director to sorority and fraternity life. “Every time I see President Gee he says, ‘How are numbers looking?’” she said. During the 2007-08 academic year, Gee’s first year of his current term, there were 2,073 members of Greek life as of Spring Quarter 2008, according to sorority and fraternity life data. As of Spring Quarter 2011, there were 3,584 members. Costs to join a Greek organization can vary, depending on the amount of members, type of organization and type of events the chapter holds said Janelle Becker, a third-year in materials science and engineering and recruitment guide for Panhellenic Association (PHA) for Winter Quarter. She said costs for members of a PHA chapter average about $500 per quarter. PHA is the governing council of the 16 national social sororities at OSU. The Interfraternity Council

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer has apologized to an LGBT group for a team rule forcing players to wear lavender shirts for “loafing” during practice. After being alerted to the lavender shirt rule, Scarlet and Gay, an OSU alumni society, issued a letter to Meyer on Feb. 29 informing the Buckeyes’ coach that it was disappointed in the team’s choice of color. “It’s more about us standing up for a social justice issue,” Scarlet and Gay President Tim Valentine told The Lantern Wednesday. Meyer apologized in a letter dated March 1 addressed to Valentine and Garett Heysel, vice president of Scarlet and Gay and assistant dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. “Thank you for sharing your concerns regarding the purple mesh pullovers,” the letter read. “The use of purple was never intended to be used to offend anyone, but since it has, we have taken steps to change the color. “Please accept our sincere apologies. We have core values of respect and honor within our program, and these are two principles that are central to my personal life, my coaching and to Ohio State and its athletics programs. Bias has absolutely no role in how we think or operate.”

During a Feb. 15 press conference, OSU football strength coach Mickey Marotti described a new statistic kept during conditioning drills called “loafs.” A loaf is credited to a player during a moment of deceleration during a drill, Marotti said. When a second loaf is credited to a player, they’re given a lavender shirt that must be worn around the training facility. Later in the press conference, redshirt junior
linebacker Etienne Sabino said no player wants to have to a lavender jersey. “You don’t want to wear those shirts at all,” Sabino said. “Just loafing in general, you don’t want to get those. The lavender (shirt) is definitely motivation not to get any loafs.” In a Wednesday email to The Lantern, OSU athletics spokesman Jerry Emig said the football team changed the color of the mesh shirts they use. He later said he was not sure what color the new shirts were. Valentine told The Lantern Wednesday the Scarlet and Gay board of governors decided it would take action because of the color lavender’s significance to the gay community. “Lavender is associated as a feminine color, so it deals with masculinity,” Valentine said. “It would appear, if (lavender) was the color (of the mesh shirts), that the coaching team is trying to say, ‘If you are loafing, if you are not performing up to par then you are performing in a feminine way, and so we are going to label you with a color that makes you non-masculine.” The decision to address the matter with Meyer wasn’t based on a desire for political correctness, though. The color lavender has been associated with gays throughout history and even the word

BRIN KERKHOFF Lantern reporter email@example.com Penn National Gaming will open a casino in Columbus within the year. Because of its proximity to campus it could be a student’s next job or lead to a lifelong economic nightmare. Penn National will open its first Ohio casino in Toledo this spring and its second on the Westside of Columbus this fall. The casino is located about 25 minutes from main campus and thus might be an attraction for students 21 and older. While the casino could be alluring to students, it could be dangerous for some. “College students have twice the risk as the general population for developing a gambling problem,” said Lou Weigele, gambling counselor for the National Council on Problem Gambling. Part of this is due to the risky behaviors college students are
generally involved in and the glamour attached to the high-rolling lifestyle, Weigele said. “There are two types of problem gamblers, action and escape,” Weigele said. “Action gamblers are looking for excitement and usually play table games and escape gamblers are looking for the numbing effect and usually play the slots,” he said. Despite the risks of problem gambling, Blaine McKinney, a fourthyear in psychology, said she thinks the new casino will be beneficial to the city and the OSU community. “(The casino will) bring more business to the surrounding areas and help stimulate the economy in Columbus,” McKinney said. Hollywood Casino Columbus will feature up to 3,000 slot machines, 70 table games, a steakhouse, buffet, sports bar and cocktail lounge, according to its website. Male college students are at a greater risk than females due to their competitive nature, Weigele said. Weigele said gambling can also be new to students who are recently of

An OSU study found that media outlets only reported a fraction of actual alcohol involvement in crimes and accidents.

When people read in a news article that alcohol was a factor in a crime or accident, they are more likely to support the enforcement of alcohol laws, according to new research conducted at Ohio State. According to a press release about the study, previous OSU research shows that newspapers mention the involvement of alcohol fewer than one in four times, and TV news reports mention it one in 10 times, when there was alcohol involvement in a crime. Communication professor Michael Slater, part of the team that conducted the study, said in an email to The Lantern that law enforcement and reporters should do a better job of communicating about the involvement of alcohol in crimes so that it can be accurately reported. “From my conversations with people knowledgeable about media and police, it would be quite valuable if police procedurally made a practice of attempting to ascertain if alcohol was involved with a crime or non-motor vehicle injury and include that information in the police report,” Slater said. “Conversely, if reporters make a practice of asking police about this, it is more likely that such information will start finding its way into police reports.” Participants in the study read news reports from the United States that involved violent crimes and various accidental injuries, half of which were edited to include the involvement of alcohol and half of which were edited to not include that information, according to the press release. Sevenhundred-and-eighty-nine adults across the country were surveyed. Rachel Reineck, a third-year in nursing, said she thinks reporters on these types of issues should be more consistent. “I don’t know why it wouldn’t be reported,” she said. “I feel like it should be the same way every time.” She said when it comes to enforcing laws, people should be judged on a crime itself and not whether alcohol was involved. She feels that
alcohol might make people think that someone should be given a harsher sentence, while others might favor leniency based on alcohol involvement, but that people should accept their actions are what they are regardless of substance use. Reineck said alcohol involvement should be considered a fact, and without reporting that fact there is an omission to the story, which might skew people’s perception of the crime. “I think people need to do a better job of being objective … just looking at the facts,” Reineck said. Jenny Sulcebarger, a fourth-year in chemistry, said she agreed that news outlets should report involvement of alcohol to avoid creating a negative perception of law enforcement officers for doing their job. “I know newspapers don’t always report all the facts so it can skew things,” Sulcebarger said. “So if (reporters) don’t report involvement we are more likely to criticize law enforcement. Like maybe (perpetrators) weren’t doing anything wrong.” She said she thinks the public might backlash after an arrest if they don’t get the whole story. “Many people get most information from what they read, so people could be better-informed,” Sulcebarger said. Three others were involved in the study – communication professor David Ewoldsen, associate communication and psychology professor Andrew Hayes and Catherine Goodall, assistant communication professor at Kent State University. Slater said these reports are read by advocacy and public health organizations that push for change, and they could have a real impact on the way crimes are reported. “An unusual aspect of the study is that it involves an online research panel that is reasonably representative of the U.S. population and a representative sample of news stories from local newspapers in the U.S.,” Slater said in an email. “If we can identify what makes some stories more influential than others, this is information that can be used by people who work with the press in public health and advocacy contexts; reporters and editors too may be interested in what aspects of such stories impact people most.”

SARAH STEMEN email@example.com Cartwheels. That’s what I was doing Tuesday night and early Wednesday in my living room due to the excitement and chaos that was enveloping my television screen. The Republican primary in Ohio had turned into a too-close-to-call battle between former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Rommey and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum. I was doing cartwheels because I was witnessing and writing about history. I know my home state is usually split when
it comes to candidates, but the race was not able to be called with 80 percent of precincts reporting. Then 90 percent. Then Tuesday became Wednesday. Political analysts and pundits seemed to mostly agree: whoever won, would ride the Buckeye State momentum to the nominating convention. With Romney barely pulling out the win here, it is clear that Ohio will matter in a big way in November. President Barack Obama and his campaign team had to be watching closely, and I’m sure they were rejoicing at how split Ohio’s citizens were. One-in-four Ohioans voted on Super Tuesday, according to the Ohio Secretary of State’s office. That means 75 percent of all Ohioans did not visit the polls. Experts and officials say the low voter turnout is due to the low energy of the Republican Party. Others say some Republicans did not show up at the polls due to negative advertising damaging the Republican brand. Either way – Republican, Democrat, Independent, who
cares what party you are – this year will change the future of America, and if Tuesday night into Wednesday morning did not show it, I don’t know what will. Ohio State’s Columbus campus has the largest number of students in one area in the state. Do you think Obama spoke to a group of OSU students on the Oval in 2010 by coincidence? Was it an accident when Vice President Joe Biden visited a Columbus high school in January to speak about the cost of higher education, something that appeals to many OSU students? I have no doubt that Romney or Santorum will be back, perhaps on campus, later this year as Election Day gets closer. And they should because everyone is looking. No, everyone is staring. Our voice, this state, our citizens, matter. Ohio could very well decide who the next leader of our country is … and which political party will be doing cartwheels in November.

(IFC) is the governing body for OSU’s general or social fraternities. Hassell-Goodman said 2012 numbers cannot be determined until council members ensure all members are meeting requirements. “We want to make sure the (Greek) community is growing at an appropriate level,” she said. During a Feb. 6 editorial board meeting with The Lantern, Gee said Greek life at OSU should be significantly higher. “Our Greek system right now is about 8 percent, too small. It should be 15 percent,” Gee said. Sororities and fraternities accounted for about 5 percent of undergraduate enrollment in 2008 and about 7 percent in 2010, according to data available from office of enrollment services and sorority and fraternity life. Some students have said they do not think joining a Greek organization is a necessity for their college experience. Shelby Griffith, a second-year in computer information science, said she never considered going Greek while attending OSU. “I think it’s worth something because of the community project,” Griffith said. “I was just never interested in joining.” OSU has 67 Greek chapters. Hassell-Goodman said there are five more chapters looking to come onto campus including the Phi Sigma Kappa, Delta Sigma Phi, Sigma Lambda Beta and Chi Phi fraternities, and the Sigma Lambda Gamma sorority. It is unknown when these chapters will be official on campus, Hassell-Goodman said. They must first fulfill requirements at their national office and with the university. “(The chapters) want to come on campus at a time when they can be successful,” she said. “Some groups that expressed interest won’t necessarily go through.” Justin Keats, a fourth-year in operations management and member of Sigma Alpha Mu, said he thinks Greek life at OSU is small compared to other
schools and doesn’t feel numbers at OSU have changed much since joining during the 2008-09 academic year. “People that want to (join) are going to do it,” Keats said. “I think it’s a great way for people to make good friends and meet great people that they wouldn’t otherwise.” Hassell-Goodman said numbers have been steadily increasing, after seeing a drop in the early 2000s. By the end of Spring Quarter she said there’s hope that Greek life will account for 10 percent of OSU’s undergraduates. An increase in numbers could be the result of multiple initiatives taken up by groups within Greek life, including IFC and PHA, Hassell-Goodman said. These initiatives include changes in the Lead, Learn, Serve website, a resource for OSU students interested in joining Greek life, to make recruitment sign-up easier and an increase in marketing campaigns. Carey Santiana, a third-year in political science and English and member of Chi Omega, said she has seen a bigger increase in people going through recruitment since joining almost two years ago. Santiana is also director of risk management for PHA at OSU. “I think Ohio State (Greek life) has always had a bad stigma from past stereotypes,” she said. “PHA and IFC are really trying to change the perception of Greek life at Ohio State … rather than it being a social club.” Greek members have the option of living in their respective sorority or fraternity house. Santiana lived in her sorority house last year but opted to live elsewhere this year. She said issues of overcrowding have not been brought to her attention. “There is always room for girls to live in if that’s what they want to do,” Santiana said. “It can be competitive depending on who wants to live in that year, but it varies.” Although sororities and fraternities seem small compared to OSU’s large population, Santiana said compared to other colleges, OSU seems to be ahead in terms of the opportunities for members. “There’s definitely the attitude that everyone really wants Greek life to grow. They just have to play into effect in the coming quarters and semesters,” Santiana said.
million, which is one of the largest, private investments Columbus has seen in years, Tenenbaum said. “Construction is ahead of schedule and we would like to be open prior to Thanksgiving,” Tenenbaum said.
“lavender” itself has been used to label the LGBT community, Valentine said. The Scarlet and Gay board of governors were striving for social justice, standing up for people — perhaps even one of Meyer’s players — that can’t stand up for themselves, Valentine said. Meyer’s response to the organization came a day later, and Valentine said Scarlet and Gay was satisfied with the apology, as well as Meyer’s pledge to change the color of the mesh pullovers. “(Meyer) had a very fast response,” Valentine said. “That said to us as an organization that he did care and was concerned about this being offensive to the community and a reflection of something he did not stand for.” At least one OSU student agreed that changing the color of the mesh pullovers was warranted. Stephen Moon, a first-year in aerospace engineering, said he did not quite understand why people would be offended but supported a change if people were offended. “I don’t immediately associate the color purple with homosexual people,” Moon said. “But to me, it’s just a way to set people apart, to say, ‘OK, these people did this.’ If they’re offended, though, by all means, change it.”
Valentine said he is hopeful that Meyer’s apology will allow for the on-going discussion about gay student-athletes to be heightened at OSU. “One of the things that’s known is that the hardest place to come out as an LGBTQ person is in Division I athletics, and sports in general,” he said. “That’s something we’re definitely looking forward to — some programming, some more conversation about the homophobia that does exist within athletics.” OSU begins spring football drills on March 28 with the 2012 Spring Game set to take place April 21.

It’s been cited as an inﬂuence on many of pop culture’s most visible science-fiction staples, such as “Star Wars” and “Avatar.” After a century almost exclusively on the page, it’s now set for its own big screen debut. “John Carter,” which is based on Edgar Rice Burrough’s character who first appeared 100 years ago and eventually spawned an 11-book series, is set to hit theaters Friday. The Lantern spoke with director Andrew Stanton and star Taylor Kitsch. Bringing a century-old franchise to life was no biggie for Kitsch, who plays the titular character who ends up whisked away to Barsoom, the natives’ name for Mars. “I don’t think you’re going to put more pressure on it because it’s existed this or that,” Kitsch said. “I think that’s a lot of the outside pressure trying to come in. But no one is going to put more pressure on it more than I will.” Stanton said he felt the same way, even though he admitted to being a huge fan of the franchise, going so far as to asking Disney, the studio that produced the film, to approach the Burroughs estate in 2006 for their graces in getting a film adaptation in the works. “I didn’t (feel a lot of pressure) because the harsh truth of it is, is that not that many people know about (John Carter),” Stanton said. “It’s not like Harry Potter or (J.R.R.) Tolkien. It’s slowly been a dwindling base and so I knew there wasn’t this massive social pressure about how it was executed.” “John Carter” is Stanton’s live-action directorial debut, after helming Academy Award-winning animated films “Finding Nemo” and “WALL-E” at Pixar. Directing a live-action film wasn’t all that different
from directing an animated film, Stanton said, though the shooting schedules for “John Carter” were much stricter than those of animated films. Being on your feet shooting for about 15 hours a day in varying weather, however, was new for Stanton. “The big difference is just physical stamina,” Stanton said. “I know that’s not sexy, but that’s the truth of it.” The physicality was an issue for Kitsch as well. Kitsch said he woke up at 4:30 a.m. every day to train to achieve Carter’s chiseled look. He said it involved a “boring” diet of lots of protein, as well as boxing, core work and sword training. Kitsch’s role as Tim Riggins on NBC’s hit drama, “Friday Night Lights” likely aided his rise to fame. Kitsch said shooting a feature-length film was a lot different than shooting “Friday Night Lights.” “A big difference (on a film) is, we can do a whole day, 12-hour day, and do one scene,” Kitsch said. “If I’m playing Riggins, I’ve done 17 pages in one day. So I think that you can really take your time and break it down a lot more (on a film), maybe.” Much of the world around Kitsch on Barsoom was created from scratch. Location shooting in Utah doubled as Mars, while Barsoom’s aircrafts, architecture and non-human life, including the tall, lanky Tharks, were crafted with computer-generated imagery, or CGI. “I mean, making ‘John Carter’ was basically making two movies — almost literally two different film productions,” Stanton said. “One was the live action side that took almost a year to do, and then the computer, graphic side.” With the film set to open in 3-D, IMAX 3-D and on conventional screens Friday, Stanton is already looking ahead. He said Disney has obtained rights to the first three “John Carter” novels and is hoping to return to the franchise with Kitsch, should the studio greenlight a sequel. “That’s me knocking on wood,” Stanton said.

With Jimi Hendrix-inspired classic rock sounds, and inspiration from timeless blues musicians, lead singer and guitarist Wesley and bassist Myke Rock attempt to create an experience that puts a twist on the long-standing genres. The attraction to this mixed genre comes from guitar-god Hendrix. “It started with Jimi breaking strings,” Wesley said. Even though Wesley writes his own music, part of the experience for the audience is based off Hendrix’s style and persona. Not only does Wesley’s style of music blend with Hendrix, so does his style of dress and stage appearance. Wesley, like Hendrix, can play guitar with their teeth. Wesley said learning to incorporate the alternate play style caused him to cut his gums multiple times. Playing the guitar with his teeth is one thing, but Wesley said he is not ready to commit to setting his guitar on fire like Hendrix did at the end of one of his performances. “I have expensive guitars,” Wesley said. “We’re not selling out stadiums, yet.” Rock said there are three phases of Dexter Wesley and the New Experience. “One is a Hendrix tribute, the second is Dexter originals and the third is a mix of both,” Rock said. Wesley and Rock said even though elements of their show are based off Hendrix, they don’t consider themselves a tribute band. Instead they find inspiration from Hendrix’s life and music. Giving the audience a full Hendrix-inspired experience has come with some hardships for the band. Wesley said he and Rock struggle to find a permanent drummer who can imitate Hendrix’s drummer, Mitch Mitchell. Since combining efforts in August, Wesley and Rock have played with what they call “drummers by committee.” “Trying to emulate Mitch Mitchell’s style is the greatest obstacle, but we know there are people out there who can do it,” Rock said. Rock said they are looking for a drummer who can join them in a “hell of a journey.”

Local band Dexter Wesley and the New Experience classifies its sound as hyper-spiritual amplified blues rock. “We are looking for the one guy who can do it all with the band,” Rock said. Struggling with drummers has always been his issue when it comes to making music, Rock said. For Wesley, his biggest challenge has been learning to play his style of music, and learning how to work his fingers the way Hendrix did. Wesley and Rock learned to play various instruments when they were children. Each had been part of family bands with their siblings, and their love for music grew from there. Wesley started playing on a plastic trumpet when he was 3 years old and picked up his brother’s guitar years later. Rock said he attempted Conga drums when he was about 11 years old, but after struggling to learn how to play, he decided to switch to bass. When he was about 15 years old, Rock joined the Screaming Urge, which he said was one of Columbus’ first punk bands. Even though Wesley and Rock have been playing music since their childhoods, playing together is something new to them. The two musicians met 25 years ago but lost touch. Wesley said he found Rock again on Facebook and asked if he would be interested in jamming. Rock was all for it. Since coming together, Wesley and Rock said they have had a blast working together. Rock said their styles blend really well because of what each brings to the table. “I can pick up playing in the minute, and Dexter
lives in the minute, so it’s a good mixture of music,” Rock said. Although they have been playing together for a number of months, Wesley and Rock have not written any songs together. Their shows mainly showcase either Wesley’s or Hendrix’s originals. Wesley said he draws inspiration from legends in the music business. “I get inspiration from great things,” Wesley said. “I’m going to start pulling from jazz next.” Getting a steady drummer will change they way they write music, Rock said. Once the band is complete, they can focus on other details, such as song writing. Even though the two have not been able to collaborate with song writing, Wesley said he is proud of the music they have made so far. Dexter Wesley and the New Experience have yet to debut a full album, but have a five-song CD. The two have been working in the studio to produce three more songs. “We’re going to keep adding on until we get a full album,” Rock said. While working on producing a full album, Wesley and Rock said they are hoping to be signed with a major record deal. Wesley and Rock have performed more than 30 shows together since they have united. The duo has played for multiple venues in their hometown of Columbus, from Comfest to fundraisers in Marion and bars in the Brewery District. Wesley said he has been playing by the motto his father told him years ago: “Play it, and play it good.”
Pop star Lady Gaga is transforming “Born This Way” from a hit album into a new movement. Gaga launched the Born This Way Foundation at Harvard University Feb. 29. The event was littered with intellectuals and very rich, concerned people. Among them were Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra, both of whom were there to discuss ways to stop bullying in schools. To be completely honest, I had expected a lot of empty words from Gaga, and for everyone around her to praise her well-meaning but utterly useless statements. However, the event was a lot more in-depth. The panel consisted of six people, including the sister of a recently deceased Gaga fan, with Gaga in the center, answering their questions. They asked her some really tough questions, and she even told them at times that she didn’t have the answer, hence the foundation’s creation. “If every single person in this room just told one single human being that’s not here about everything we talked about, it’s all about spreading the message,” she said. “The culture of love is not going to change overnight. We have to start it slowly, but you are the answer, and know that, and go home and take with you that you are the future.” Everyone cheered, the people were satisfied and so am I. I think it’s great that this foundation is being made to empower the youth of America to stand up for not just themselves, but for other people. For the rest of this story, visit thelantern.com.

Postseason approaches for Buckeyes Tyler Robinson Senior Lantern reporter email@example.com Depending on a team’s record, playing in a college basketball conference tournament can have a variety of implications. For some, it’s a final opportunity to attain an unlikely spot in the NCAA Tournament. For others, it’s a chance to improve seeding or tune up for a deep tournament run. This year, the Big Ten tournament could serve as something else: a tiebreaker. Michigan State, Michigan and Ohio State each finished with a 13-5 record in the Big Ten, forcing a three-way split of the regular season conference title. Would winning the Big Ten tournament, which will be played Thursday through Sunday, give one of those three teams an unofficial title as the conference’s best? “These tournaments, the regular season champion, tournament champion, they’re a big deal,” said OSU junior forward Evan Ravenel. “It kind of sets you apart from the rest of the pack as far as within your conference.” Although a Big Ten tournament championship by one of the top three teams might offer some clarity within the conference, it might not have a significant impact on the national level. Despite the Big Ten being widely regarded this season as college basketball’s top conference and having five teams ranked 15th or better in the AP Top 25 Poll this week, many projections don’t have a Big Ten team receiving one of the four No. 1 seeds in the NCAA tourney. OSU coach Thad Matta said that should the Buckeyes, Spartans or Wolverines win this weekend’s tournament, that team should receive a top seed for the national tournament. “From what I’ve just gone through, I would say yes,” Matta said. “Now you can say, ‘Hey Thad, how would you guys do going through the Big East?’
There’s probably too much hypothetical involved in it, I don’t know the answer. But I know, just lobbying for the Big Ten, the different styles that you face from night to night, the arenas that we play in, that sort of thing, it’s a great challenge. But yeah if one of the three of us wins the conference (tournament) championship I could see validity in (getting a No. 1 seed).” Unlike last season when the Buckeyes went 16-2 in the Big Ten en route to a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, the strength of teams in the Big Ten this season ultimately prevented a team from pulling away in the standings. “We did a nice job of beating each other up throughout the course of (this season),” Matta said. “You didn’t have that dominating performance by anyone in the league. I mean 13-5 won it, so it probably just speaks more to top to bottom how good the conference is.” Based on tie-breaking procedures, Michigan State is the top seed, Michigan is the No. 2 seed and the Buckeyes are the third seed in this weekend’s tournament. OSU will play Friday in the quarterfinals against the winner of Thursday’s game between sixth-seeded Purdue and No. 11 seed Nebraska. Matta said conference tournament games give the younger OSU players a preview of what NCAA tournament games are like. “You’re going to a neutral site, you’re playing in a nice arena, you’re playing great competition obviously, and there’s that heightened awareness of second half, score tied, ‘Hey, if we don’t get it done we’re going home,’” Matta said. “So without really saying it, they have that understanding and appreciation for what we have to do at that time. “I will be anxious to see how this team plays in this setting.” Tip between the Buckeyes and either the Boilermakers or Cornhuskers is set for 9 p.m. Friday at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Ind.

Flyers: ‘We’re extremely high’ on Heeter Andrew Holleran and Pat Brennan Senior Lantern reporter and Sports editor firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
Growing up, former Ohio State men’s ice hockey senior goalie Cal Heeter often dreamed of playing in the National Hockey League. On Tuesday, that dream was closer to becoming a reality when Heeter agreed to terms of a contract with the Philadelphia Flyers. “I think that’s everyone’s dream who’s ever played hockey at a competitive level — to one day make it to the NHL,” Heeter told The Lantern Wednesday. Philadelphia had been eyeing Heeter as a prospect for the past few years. “They had scouts at some of our games this year,” Heeter said. “They’ve been following me in previous years as well. I had known that they had interest for a while now, it was just a matter of time before we figured it all out at the end.” OSU ended its season last weekend, getting swept in a best-of-three series by Notre Dame in the first round of the CCHA playoffs. It was just a matter of days until Heeter received the contract offer he accepted from the Flyers, which he confirmed to The Lantern in a Tuesday email. Chris Pryor, director of hockey operations for the Flyers, said given the lack of goaltending depth in the organization, Heeter will have a chance to make an impact in Philadelphia. “We think (Heeter’s) got a lot of potential … we’re extremely high on him,” Pryor said. “He’s got a great opportunity in our organization. We think he’s got a bright future.” A two-year starter in net for the Buckeyes, Heeter is third in program history in save percentage (.915) and goals-against average (2.58), eighth in saves (2428) and ninth in wins (39). Heeter said other NHL teams expressed interest in signing him following his career at OSU. The potential to succeed within the Flyers’ organization made them stand out from other teams. “At the end it came down to which team I felt would blend me into having the greatest opportunity to be where I wanted to be next year — playing in the minor leagues in the NHL and having the opportunity to play well and move up from there,” Heeter said. Heeter said he had envisioned himself playing professional hockey early in his OSU career.

Former OSU men’s ice hockey goalie Cal Heeter surveys the action during a game against Ferris State, Jan. 21. OSU tied, 3-3, before losing in a shootout. “To be playing at such a great school and for such a great program, I realized that maybe one day it (was) possible for me to graduate from here and move on and make it to the next level,” he said. “It’s been a long process and I had to work a lot at every level to move on and get to the next one.” Heeter’s coach said the goaltender’s growth on and off the ice is the reason he will be playing professionally. “I think it comes down to one thing — maturity,” OSU coach Mark Osiecki said. “I think he has grown as both a person and a player and I think it comes right down to that.” He will have to continue to improve in order to play well within the Flyers’ organization. “Every day, I’m out there working as hard as I can, making sure that I am consistent and as good as I can be,” Heeter said. “At the next level, every player is that much better, so there is hardly any room for mistakes.”
Osiecki accepted the coaching position at OSU before Heeter’s junior season, and with his staff, made a huge impact on the goalie’s career, Heeter said. “I can’t give enough credit to the new coaching staff,” Heeter said. “They’ve done so much for me personally. You can’t measure the amount of effort and energy they’re putting in to make this one of the best hockey programs in all of college hockey.” Heeter will attend class at OSU during Spring Quarter and graduate after. Following graduation, he said he will spend some time in Columbus before returning to his home in St. Louis, Mo. Then, he will be off to the Flyers’ training camp in September. The Flyers have two minor league teams, the Adirondack Phantoms of the American Hockey League and the Greenville Road Warriors of the East Coast Hockey League. Heeter said he expects to be playing for one of those teams next fall. While he has never been to Philadelphia, Heeter said he is looking forward to one day playing in the sports-centric city. “The fan base there is absolutely incredible and I know that they’re second to none as far as the fans go, so I think that is going to be great as well,” he said. Pryor said he expects Flyers fans to appreciate Heeter’s personality and dedication to the sport. “All those things come into play,” Pryor said. “He’s got a bright future ahead of him. Obviously, it’s going to come down to Cal, but we know he’s got a great work ethic and a great attitude. We think it’s a great fit.” The Flyers are 37-21-7 and in third-place in the Atlantic Division, as well as fifth-place in the Eastern Conference.

sports Chastising football program makes ‘mountain out of a mole hill’ Asst. Arts editor Justin Conley firstname.lastname@example.org The Ohio State football team has come under fire for forcing some players to swap their scarlet and gray for lavender. Coach Urban Meyer issued a letter of apology March 1, a day after Tim Valentine, president of OSU alumni society Scarlet & Gay, and Garett Heysel, assistant dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, sent a letter to Meyer chastising the program for its practice of making players who underperformed during conditioning drills don lavender jerseys. In the joint-statement, Valentine and Heysel said the “choice of lavender reinforces homophobia and promotes bullying amongst students” because the color is closely associated with the gay community. As a proudly open member of the gay community, my first instinct might have been to fall in line with this call to arms. Instead, I found myself wondering what it is that I am supposed to be offended by. There is no doubt that homophobia in the locker room is a pervasive issue that victimizes many athletes, leaving them in a perpetual state of fear of being outed. Recently, the NHL took up the cause in the You Can Play campaign, a collection of efforts to create a more inclusive atmosphere in athletics. Those in the NBA and MLB have made similar efforts to address a very real problem for people in the gay community. But unless there were homophobic slurs scrawled across the lavender jerseys, I am at a complete loss for how this practice is connected to the oppressive
nature of athletics, directly or indirectly. Yes, lavender is associated with the gay community. It is also the color of many Easter eggs, flowers and my grandmother’s dining room walls. Based on Valentine and Heysel’s reasoning, could one call foul if the dawdling players had been forced to wear white — a clearly racist action based on the oft-cited stereotype that white men can’t jump? Valentine and Heysel, along with the others who were so quick to take a stand for what could be seen as a slight against the gay community should be lauded for their fearless advocacy. It takes an immense amount of bravery to demand accountability from a popular figure such as Meyer when the topic at hand is one so controversial. But to take an issue as immaterial as the color choice of penal jerseys used in the football program and attempt to paint it as an undeniable product of institutionalized homophobia (through a convoluted, assumptive line of thought, no less) completely trivializes the plight of countless closeted athletes who feel forced to remain silent for fear of losing the support of their teammates or losing their place on the team. Though I would much rather hear discourse concerning more substantial issues, I am wildly pleased with Meyer’s reaction. Rather than going on the defensive, Meyer swiftly and tactfully apologized for any unintended offense and promised to change the practice. While navigating this mountain forged from a mole hill, Meyer’s apology lent more to creating a sense of respect and openness in athletics and across the board than anyone could have hoped to achieve through demanding jerseys of a different color.

U.S. swimmer Michael Phelps carries the flag after receiving his gold medal Aug. 17, 2008, for the 4x100 medley, his 8th gold of the Beijing Olympics.
Olympic medalist Michael Phelps comes to campus Lisa Barefield Lantern reporter email@example.com The McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion is no stranger to Olympic medalists, and the nation’s best have descended on campus to compete this weekend. Before taking to the pool in the 2012 NCAA Championships, some members of the Ohio State swimming and diving teams will participate alongside headliners Michael Phelps and Natalie Coughlin in the Columbus Grand Prix Friday through Sunday. “Many swimmers from around the world will be here,” said OSU men’s swimming coach Bill Wadley. “There’s a lot on the line.” OSU is the fourth stop on the USA Swimming Grand Prix Series, a seven-city tour that allows swimmers the opportunity to compete against the best in the sport and prepare for the U.S. Olympic Trials, which are scheduled to take place June 25-July 2 in Omaha, Neb., and U.S. Olympic Games in London. First place performances are awarded five points. Three points go to second place and one point for third. The athlete with the most points at the end of the series is given $20,000. Frontrunner and 14-time Olympic gold medalist Phelps
leads the pack with 41 points. Defending Grand Prix Series winner Missy Franklin trails by six going into the meet. Additional visiting American Olympians include Jason Lezak, Matt Grevers, Christine Magnuson, Allison Schmitt and more. But to other contenders, the competition site will feel like home. Former OSU swimmer, Elliott Keefer, who broke school records in his senior season as a Buckeye last year, will compete in the breaststroke representing the U.S. National team. Keefer’s former teammate, junior Tim Phillips, is on the roster of the OSU men’s swimming team but chose to redshirt this season. “He has decided to sit this year out because he is so close to making the Olympic team,” Wadley said. “It’s difficult to balance 20 to 30 hours of studying and 20 to 30 hours of swimming. One of them is going to suffer.” Phillips will participate in the Columbus Grand Prix in the same bout as Phelps. “Tim is in the butterfly event and they only take the top two to the Olympics,” Wadley said. “In order to be in the top two, you either have to be No. 2 behind Michael or beat him.” Preliminaries begin daily at 9 a.m. with finals beginning at 6 p.m. Time trials will be held in between.
