The scene for Ohio State football’s 2011 Spring Game was set against gray, stormy skies, and a far-from-capacity crowd took in a scrimmage that pitted the Buckeyes’ offensive and defensive units against each other. Some might have needed to refer back to their game program to remember how many points a sack was worth, but there was a silver lining for the Silver Bullets — OSU turned a profit of $194,109. That money is used to fund a university outreach program. There’s a chance for even greater contributions to the same program this year with attendance already guaranteed to increase. The offense won the weather-shortened 2011 Spring Game, 59-27, in what Buckeye Nation now knows to have been former coach Jim Tressel and former quarterback Terrelle Pryor’s final “game” at the ‘Shoe. Despite the specter of an NCAA investigation and the nearing departure of Tressel and Pryor, OSU’s net revenue went to Life Sports, which benefits economically disadvantaged youths from many areas of Columbus. Ben Jay, executive associate athletics director, told The Lantern that Life Sports is the university’s largest outreach program and is funded primarily by the athletic department. “For the most part, (Life Sports’) budget is subsidized and funded through athletics,” Jay said in an email to The Lantern. “The program does receive some funding from a grant, but it doesn’t cover the annual expense for the program.” Funding from the Spring Game — Life Sports is

Lindsey Barrett Lantern reporter While more colleges in Ohio and nationwide are giving students freedom to choose their on-campus roommates regardless of gender, Ohio State has no plans in the works to allow men and women to live together on campus. Ohio University, Wright State University and Kenyon College began offering gender-neutral housing for students living on campus for the first time this year. They join Columbus College of Art & Design, Oberlin College and Miami University – Ohio schools that have had the option for years, according to their respective websites. Toni Greenslade-Smith, the associate director for University Residences and Dining Services at OSU, said the option has been considered, but only as an idea. “We’ve talked about it, but nothing more than a brainstormed list. It doesn’t have any concrete legs yet,”

Greenslade-Smith0 said. “It’s not on our radar for 2013; that doesn’t mean it’s not on our radar at all.” She said officials would consider the different wants, needs and expectations of sophomores living on campus if second-year students are required to live on campus in the future. Dwayne Todd, vice president for student affairs and dean of students at CCAD, said the college began offering gender-neutral housing to students who requested it three years ago after it opened Design Square Apartments. In deciding who should live in the new rooms, officials realized previous rules preventing genderneutral housing were outdated. “We tried to think of reasons why we should maintain (the old housing rules), and we couldn’t think of a single reason … so we did away with the rule,” Todd said. Upperclassman students are given the option to live in two-bedroom or four-bedroom gender-neutral apartments, complete with a private bathroom. Students not interested in the option are not placed in mixed-gender housing. This year,

24 students took advantage of the option. Todd is a Ph.D. student at OSU studying gender-neutral housing for his dissertation. He said the impact of gender-neutral housing has been

positive, leading to increased academic success and retention rates for students. He said the option has been a “non-issue,” and CCAD will continue offering it.

USAS grades university on transparency, accountability

While there are no plans for co-ed residence halls at OSU, many Ohio schools have been giving students the option to live in an on-campus, co-ed environment.

Students from USAS march to Bricker Hall to deliver a report card to the university April 18.

The university was issued a grade card and it failed every subject. Members of the United Students Against Sweatshops marched from the Oval to President E. Gordon Gee’s office in Bricker Hall Wednesday afternoon to present him with a report card grading the university in math, accountability, transparency and its ability to play with others. “They grade us, and now it’s time to take a step back and for us to grade you on your ethicalness,” said Danya Contractor, a first-year in international studies and USAS member. Contractor said students were on the Oval to “protest the sale of our university.”

The students advocated against the privatization of parking and proposed apparel deals with the Dallas Cowboys Silver Star Merchandising Line, and the grade card reflected their thoughts on these business initiatives. USAS argues that Silver Star Merchandising mistreats its sweatshop laborers, and OSU should not enter an agreement with Silver Star. USAS also argues that it is unfair to the 124 companies who have contracts with OSU, and the deal with Silver Star could possibly hurt these companies financially. Repeated attempts to contact Silver Star over the year have been unsuccessful. The university is considering a proposal to privatize parking. The deal would include selling its parking to a third-party vendor for an up-front, one-time cost of at least $375 million.

campus Pizza place tosses up new look KRISTEN MITCHELL Senior Lantern reporter Onlookers have been caught doing a double-take after strolling past the newly renovated A Slice of New York pizza shop on High Street. Until major renovations were done during Spring Break last month, the restaurant had hardly changed in more than 25 years. The independently owned restaurant located at 1812 N. High St. has been a campus staple since the previous owner Joe Graci moved to Columbus and opened the shop in January 1986. Current owner Patt Miller, 24, worked at A Slice of New York for three years before saving up the money to purchase the store from Graci in 2008 when Garci was considering retirement. Miller was 20 years old at the time. “It was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. How many 20-year-olds can say they own a business?” Miller said. “I was better at making pizza than going to school.” The former Columbus State student said the renovations came out of a desire to leave his mark on the business. “I (was the owner) here for four years without changing a thing,” Miller said. “Now I’m more proud of it because I made it something of my own.” He also said the renovations — which cost him about $2,400 — were a necessity. “I’ve already seen business increase. The cleaner look and the modern feel makes us more competitive. Before it was more of a hole in the wall, and now it’s a restaurant,” Miller said. Miller said he believes the renovations will benefit the business because the added space will allow more customers to wait inside while in line to order, when customers had to wait outside he said it was an inconvenience that drove customers away during inclement weather. Miller and his staff began renovations on March 18. Staff members worked for a week rebuilding the counters, moving plumbing lines, redoing walls, making solid wood tables, knocking out a back wall and adding lights and art to the store. The changes added 154 square feet to the dining area, which more than doubled the previous space and increased seating by 60 percent. When Graci was designing the store in 1986, he had considered two different designs. The one he originally rejected was the one Miller chose for the recent renovations, but Graci said he’s come around on it. “I like it, but I wanted to do the New York thing with

the pizza in the window. But it sounds to me like it’s a good change,” Graci said. Miller said guests have been shocked by the drastic changes. “People have walked in and literally walked back out to read the sign. It’s been crazy, so many people have been coming here for 25 years and nothing has changed,” he said. Some students have been impressed by the restaurant’s new look. “It’s great,” said Zach Smith, a fourthyear in computer science and engineering. “There’s a lot more room. It looks a lot nicer, that’s for sure.” Miller said he has plans for only minor renovations in the imminent future. “At this point we need to add more art or a customer photo wall, just cosmetic things,” he said. “There’s really not a better way to use the space we have.”

ALLIE JANNECK Lantern reporter Gravity wasn’t the only factor restricting the moonbuggy some Ohio State welding students built from taking off. Students from the welding engineering program competed against 87 other teams in the Great Moonbuggy Race last weekend in Huntsville, Ala. Students from high schools and colleges from 20 states participated along with international schools from Puerto Rico, Canada, India, Italy, Germany, Russia, Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates. A moonbuggy is a two-person, one female and male, human-powered buggy with no electronics attached to it. The buggy must race through more than half a mile of rock, gravel, sand and other material that mimics the moon’s surface. The event organized by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center has occurred for the past 19 years and requires students to construct their lunar roving vehicle and race against other teams. Angela Storey, NASA spokeswoman, said this event was started to honor the history of the space program. “The original race was done in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of Apollo as a commemorative idea,” Storey said. She said that when this event first began in 1994, less than ten teams showed up. Each year since it has gained more recognition and interest. Competitors raced their moonbuggies from about 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days but were only allowed to do it once. After completing their time trial Friday, they were able to rebuild anything that broke and test it again Saturday. OSU’s team took third place last year and came back this year with

The OSU Moonbuggy team competed last weekend in an international competition in Huntsville, Ala. a modified version of its previous vehicle. The team did not rank due to malfunctions with the buggy. The team worked for about two months modifying its previous vehicle. Jared Proegler, a third-year in welding engineering and managing team captain, participated in the event last year and this year. “It was a very positive thing. Unfortunately we didn’t win and we didn’t place very well at all,” Proegler said. “It was a great learning experience and a great team building opportunity as well.” The team’s moonbuggy did not meet the requirements for the specific dimensions, and the team was penalized. While racing, one of the bolts that held the wheels together sheared off, preventing the buggy from finishing the race. Though they did not win, Diedra Williams, the project manager for the race, said participating in the event helped build their resume. They also had the opportunity to be recruited by sponsors from the aerospace industry such as Lockheed Martin Corp., The Boeing Co. and others.

Football from 1A subsidized by a $225,000 budget — came from the last of Tressel’s 10 Spring Games as OSU coach. Tressel was forced to resign from his post after knowingly fielding ineligible players during the 2010 season. Pryor, along with former OSU players DeVier Posey, Daniel “Boom” Herron, Mike Adams and Solomon Thomas, were each suspended for five games as a result of receiving improper benefits for trading Buckeyes football memorabilia in exchange for tattoos. Brandon Whiting was also suspended for one game. Tressel and the players who were suspended during the 2011 season participated in the game, though Pryor held a clipboard, wore a headset and did not play in the game. Pryor later departed the university June 7 and was selected by Oakland Raiders Aug. 22 in the NFL supplemental draft. Then-freshman quarterback Braxton Miller also made his debut as a Buckeye in the 2011 Spring Game. If ticket sales are any indication of fan interest in the upcoming edition of the Spring Game, and Meyer’s arrival at the ‘Shoe, Life Sports could be in store for a large payday. In an email to The Lantern, Brett Scarbrough, assistant athletics director of ticketing and premium

OSU from 1A “There are misperceptions and assumptions of what this might lead to … They haven’t come true,” Todd said. “There’s this whole idea that we have to protect students from themselves, but I think it’s passé for us to be making those choices for them.” This year marks the first time OU has offered gender-neutral housing to students, in an effort to provide more inclusive housing. Currently, 17 students are using the option, said Judy Piercy, associate director for residential housing at OU. She said that while the option has been used by members of the LGBTQ community, it is available to everyone. The option has been met with support from the student body. A survey conducted by the Student Senate revealed that 84 percent of 1,700 students surveyed were in favor of gender-neutral housing. Only upperclassmen were given the option this year, though Residential Housing will recommend that the option be extended to all students next year, Piercy said. Greenslade-Smith said one of the reasons OSU has not offered mixed-gender housing is because it has not been successful at other colleges — in terms of the number of students using it. For Piercy, it’s not about the number. “We thought going into this that hundreds of students would want this,” Piercy said. “Not everyone wants this living option. It’s not going to have a huge impact overall. But for those who need and want it … it’s worth it.” Steph Wilson is a third-year in pre-nursing at Wright State University. WSU has offered students the option of co-ed housing for the first time this year. Wilson has one female roommate and one male roommate in an on-campus apartment and said the living situation works for her.

seating, confirmed that attendance for the 2012 Spring Game has already surpassed that of 2011, saying that “just over 60,000 tickets had been distributed” as of noon Wednesday. Scarbrough also said ticket prices would hold steady in 2012 — admission to the 2011 game cost $7 in advance, $15 on the day of the game and was free for OSU students and children less than six years old. Several OSU students told The Lantern they’ll be there when Meyer and his team run out of the tunnel onto the turf field Saturday. “It gets a lot more people excited about (the game),” said Lisa Davis, a third-year in finance. “I think (the price) should be low to start with.” Casey Leech, a second-year in economics, said he is looking forward to Saturday’s game for several reasons, including getting a look at Meyer’s new recruits. “It’s basically his first task to see what (Meyer’s) done in the offseason as far as recruiting goes and keeping players,” Leech said. “Basically it’s just an exhibition to see how good the Buckeyes look. The best part about it is that Ohio State wins regardless.” OSU’s Spring Game is set to kickoff at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Jackie Storer contributed to this story.

“It’s hard to live with another person, regardless of gender,” Wilson said. “I’m a tomboy, so I find it hard to live with females. I think a (co-ed) situation like this is perfect for someone like me.” Chris Clouse is a third-year nursing student who attended OSU for two years before transferring to Mount Carmel College of Nursing. He lives off-campus in a house with six men and two women. He said living in a co-ed house has not been a problem. “A lot of people make this more awkward than it should be,” Clouse said. “Once you lay some ground rules, it’s really not that big of a deal.” Clouse said some parents might have concerns about co-ed rooms on campus, but he said he thinks residence halls are co-ed already. “Floors are co-ed and everyone is pretty much in each other’s rooms all the time anyway,” he said. OSU students have mixed opinions on whether the university should offer gender-neutral housing to students. Kenya Cheston, a third-year in pharmaceutical sciences, said she disagrees with gender-neutral housing on moral grounds. “Spiritual beliefs play into that (decision),” Cheston said. “There’s already enough temptation between girls and guys, and I feel like it would be encouraging that even more … It would give the university not-so-great of a reputation morally.” Tadas Taraskevicius, a first-year in marketing, said he believes students should be able to decide for themselves if they want to live in mixed-gender housing. “I think OSU has avoided it out of political correctness — some people don’t want unmarried people living together, but if people live off-campus that way, I don’t really see the difference in living on-campus,” Taraskevicius said. “I hope to see it. Everyone should have that choice.”

Contractor said the university will lose money on privatized parking and that students will pay more for apparel if OSU makes a deal with the Silver Star Merchandising, resulting in a failing grade in math. She also said OSU has not been accountable to students, faculty and workers and has not listened to their feedback regarding either issue. The group said the university failed in its ability to play well with others, citing that the administration cares more about profit than supporting local business and the Columbus community at large, as well as in transparency due to “back-door deals with sweatshop users.” “I want to know where my shirt that says ‘Buckeyes’ is coming from. I want to know if a girl in Cambodia was sewing it for 19 hours,” Contractor said. A small crowd of students marched to Bricker Hall to find that Gee was not in his office, and that he would be out for the rest of the week. They presented their report card and their reasoning for the low grades to Julie Anstine, administrative director and assistant to the president. Shukri Farah, a second-year in international studies, said she hopes the report card will spark change in how the university handles business decisions in the future.

“I don’t want them to hand out a decision,” Farah said. Farah said she would like to see the administration actively listen to students and faculty before it makes any business deals with outside corporations. “I would like to see an email from Gordon Gee telling us what’s going on and asking for student feedback,” Farah said. University officials said they encourage comments on actions of the university. “The university has been engaged with USAS representatives and has been having good conversations with them about their concerns,” said Jim Lynch, university spokesman. “We are hopeful that our continued dialogue with them will help us advance the broader issues of how to continue to improve social responsibility programming.” USAS has organized several protests this academic year regarding the Silver Star deal, but this is the first rally concerning the privatization of parking. Contractor said people shouldn’t ignore the price increases agreed upon in the contract and other possible consequences of selling parking rights to a private company. “You can say, ‘Oh, it’ll never come to that,’” Contractor said. “But why would we want to give away the power?”

“They can recruit possible summer interns, or co-op students or actual hires out of it,” Williams said. “It is an opportunity for the young people to be exposed to the very industry that they’re pursuing a degree in.” Williams said the race was designed to give students the chance to work together on a long-term project and then see it in motion. “It’s a team-building exercise,” Williams said. “It builds camaraderie … They learn that there is more than one approach to a problem and all team members have a voice.”

Proegler along with his other teammates, thirdyears Goran Lokas, Tim McGougan, Lori Bechie, Erik Birkinbine and Alex Ruff, and second-years Ben Harris, Kayla Luzadder, Colton Ritz and Isaac Kennedy, who are about to enter the welding program, all played a role in the race and said they are excited to do it again. “We are ready to improve for next year and place,” Luzadder said. “It was great to see what other teams did for their buggy, and a lot of fun to watch the race.” They plan to build two buggies next year and continue to build their team with new recruits interested in participating in the future.


campus Students dig into Earth Day trash event Mary Posani Senior Lantern reporter As Ohio State celebrates Earth Day through a week of events, some students will participate by digging through trash from four different campus buildings to analyze the university’s recycling efforts. Ohio Staters, Inc., a student volunteer organization on campus, will be sorting through trash collected from University Hall, the Union Market, Science and Engineering Library (SEL) and Bradley-Patterson Hall as part of its second annual Think Before You Throw event. “We want to get a representation from everywhere on campus so we can get a better idea (on recycling),” Danielle O’Connell, a fourth-year in strategic communications and Ohio Staters representative for the event. “We can kind of get a good look at all sorts of things: We’ve got a library in there, University Hall is a classroom-type building, the Union is going to be food and Bradley-Patterson is going to be our dorm.” Students will gather in Ohio Union West Plaza on Thursday to separate pounds of disposed substances into trash, compost and recyclables to understand how OSU can improve its green initiatives, according to the event’s press release. OSU has recently been more active in promoting recycling around campus to eliminate excess waste. Corey Hawkey, sustainability coordinator at OSU, launched the successful Zero Waste initiative in Ohio Stadium during the 2011 football season to reduce waste in the stadium. Other initiatives have taken place around campus as well, such as the Greening the Way Conference on March 30, events at the Blackwell and the College of Pharmacy hosting a zero waste graduation ceremony in June, Hawkey said. Hawkey and the Office of Sustainability support all green initiatives on campus, including Think Before You Throw. “I think that the Think Before You Throw event is a great event for bringing awareness and education to how to recycle at Ohio State,” Hawkey said. “We here at the sustainability office are in support of the efforts and look forward to seeing how it goes.” Event participants will be assigned to a building’s trash and recycling, and a leader assigned to the bags of components. The bag will then be dumped into a plastic bin where students will sort the components into trash and recycling, then weigh again to see the difference in what has been recycled and what was in the trash and can be recycled, O’Connell said. To keep the event as sanitary as possible, students are required to wear vinyl gloves as they sift through the trash. No trash will be collected from any restroom facilities on campus, O’Connell said.

Students will sort through trash from different parts of campus to break down the amount of items thrown away that could be recycled. O’Connell said she expects to find paper recycled from SEL and University Hall, but wants to focus on the food products from the Union Market. “We want to make sure people are recycling food properly and all that type of stuff,” O’Connell said. In addition to separating trash components, Students for Recycling, a student organization that promotes recycling awareness, will sponsor a variety of games to test what students know about recycling and educate them on products that can and cannot be recycled. “We’re trying to keep a recycling theme and focus on zero waste,” said Evan Boylan, a third-year in anthropology and a representative from Students for Recycling. “Making it fun and interesting is the best way for people to learn what you can do with your waste.” Boylan said many students throw things into recycling bins that cannot be recycled. For example, Boylan said candy wrappers and Coca-Cola cups from campus dining halls are commonly seen in recycling bins when they are not recyclable. “A lot of people don’t realize still that a lot of items that they throw in the trash can be recycled,” Boylan said. “We need to be involved in programs like this. There is a lot of awareness work to do and educational work.” Hawkey said another factor in recycling properly is to keep food out of the recycling, because any container with food can contaminate and waste other recyclable product. “If you put a half-empty ice coffee cup in the recycling, and it breaks open and all the fluid swashes around with all the nice copy paper that was put in there, you run the chance of ruining all that paper,”

Hawkey said. “Then that copy paper is not able to be recycled. It is important to be cautious to what you throw in there and keeping food and liquid out of the recycling.” Representatives at the Ohio Union will also film the event to further promote zero waste throughout campus, and said they hope to see it shown at events like orientation, O’Connell said. Other students think it is great that some are separating out the recycling, but are not necessarily putting on the gloves. “I can see the [recycling] effort,” said Olga Benson, a first-year in computer science engineering. “I think it’s really good that there are people interested.” Brian Slusher, a third-year in physics, said he is eager to volunteer and separate out the recycling and the trash. “I think the event is an exceptional attempt to change the OSU recycling perspective,” Slusher said in an email. “I volunteered at it last year and heard over and over things like, ‘I had no idea this was recyclable,’ or ‘I didn’t know this was not recyclable.’ It’s extremely informative for those who participate in the trash sorting on the day of the event.” Hawkey said he thinks the Think Before You Throw event is another way to show leadership in the zero waste initiative. “It is also demonstrating not only to folks here on campus that if we can do the event in the stadium, then what can’t we do?” Hawkey said. “It is also demonstrating to campuses across the country and other schools. I think it is a demonstration of the leadership here at Ohio State, and we want to keep it going.”

I’ve bought into the belief that the construction around campus will help beautify Ohio State, like other students. However, the mass amount of construction around OSU has created an inconvenience that is a little annoying for students. Driving and walking around 17th Avenue has gotten to the point that as a student living in Morrill Tower, I don’t know how to get to class. The end will justify the means and this construction will reaffirm OSU has one of the most beautiful campus in the nation; but this construction stinks. Waking up at 8 a.m. to the sound of heavy machinery, finding a creative way to walk from the towers to the Central Classroom Building and avoiding pickup trucks and machinery in the stadium parking lot isn’t ideal. In addition to the minor inconveniences students face daily, imagine how crazy things could potentially be for the OSU football’s Spring Game Saturday. Chaos might be inevitable. Any time there is a football game at the ‘Shoe, traffic is insane. The five-second drive from the stadium parking lot to Woody Hayes Drive can last nearly an hour after a football home game. Add in the construction madness and traffic could be out of control Saturday. Also with the Spring Game, there is as much buzz around this year’s game as ever. More than 60,000 tickets were distributed for the Spring Game, Jerry Emig, athletic department spokesman wrote in a press release Monday. The construction and Spring Game might set up for a crazy event Saturday, so if you’re driving — good luck. For the students around campus, just remember not to be too frustrated by the campus-wide construction. This construction is going to make OSU gorgeous.

THURSDAY Men’s Gymnastics: NCAA Qualifier 1pm @ Norman, Okla.

For the Ohio State football team, Saturday’s Spring Game begins early Thursday morning. It will start at 6 a.m., to be precise. In his first spring as the Buckeyes’ coach, Urban Meyer said the football program — even the athletic trainers and secretaries — will be divided into two teams. And though Meyer said he wants to see how his team performs in a gameday-type atmosphere, he wants to have fun with it. “I’ve been fortunate to coach in some of these big springgame atmospheres and there’s nothing like it, it’s priceless,” he said. Meyer said it’s an experience that’s hard to replicate. “You can’t simulate that indoors or out at the practice field, that performance in the stadium in front of a big crowd. (I’m) really anxious to see them do it,” he said.

Heading into Saturday, though, Meyer wasn’t shy about admitting that Wednesday‘s practice was far from the Buckeyes’ best. “If you watched today’s practice … it wasn’t like last Wednesday,” he said. Rather than a lack of effort on the players’ part, Meyer said fatigue has finally become a factor after 13 practices. “Guys tried, I think they’re leg weary,” he said. “I think they’re beat up a little bit … the guys tried, no complaints about trying hard.” It’s why Meyer said he’ll take what he saw Wednesday after a breakthrough practice on April 11. “I’m OK with that. I get it,” he said. “Last Wednesday was big to come out and perform like they did. And they tried (today).” Still, Meyer said he’s excited for Saturday, even though it will be a “very vanilla, throw heavy” scrimmage. “I want to see some guys make plays, we’re not going to be running a lot of the quarterback because I know he can do that,” he said referring to rising sophomore quarterback

oSU redcoat Jon Yake stands at the gates of Bill Davis Stadium waiting for fans to begin entering the stadium April 17.

Football game, tennis match, track meet — it doesn’t matter, a Redcoat will be there. Present at all games and events of Ohio State’s 36 varsity sports, a Redcoat is often the first person fans see when entering an OSU sporting event and likely the last person they see when they leave. A Redcoat’s responsibilities can include collecting tickets at gates, helping fans with questions or patrolling the stadium or arena, but his or her main objective is to make fans’ experiences safe and enjoyable. “You welcome (people) in and try to make them feel comfortable,” said Ann Baca, a 10-year Redcoat. “OSU fans, visiting fans, whoever it is that comes through those gates, you want to make them feel welcome.” Becky Rich, a 15-year Redcoat veteran, agreed. “We are an extension of the eyes and ears of the university,” Rich said. “We protect the guests and try to make them happy at the same time.” As ambassadors of OSU’s athletic program, Redcoats are hourly-paid university employees. The position is considered part-time and the hours vary per week. “It all depends on the season and the sport,” said Jon Yake, a supervisor for the Redcoats. “If it’s just football you might only work about eight hours a week, but if you work multiple sports at a time or the sport has a busy week, it’s more.” Yake, a 37-year Redcoat, said he worked about 30 hours per week during the OSU baseball team’s recent 10-game homestand.

Redcoats make minimum wage while 25 supervisors make up to $10 per hour. A yearly Redcoat staff usually consists of about 400 employees, and students can also apply for the positions. Rich and Yake said Redcoats are expected to work at least two sports — football and something else. “That’s the big one,” Yake said in regards to football. “Of the 450 or so Redcoats we have, the majority of them work during football games.” Other events aren’t as big in numbers, he said — the OSU baseball game Tuesday had 17 Redcoats in attendance — but because every gate in the stadium must be manned before, during and after the game, the number of Redcoats at football games is far greater than other sports. Many Redcoats work more than the required two sports. Yake said he works football, baseball, men’s and women’s basketball and football and lacrosse summer camps. “We’re kind of expected to work when called upon,” he said. Rich also works more than two sports. She works baseball, football and wrestling, in addition to being a full-time medical bill review nurse. She said she loves being a Redcoat too much to quit. At one point, she said she was offered a nursing position at the Wexner Medical Center at OSU but turned it down because of her Redcoat position. Because she was already an hourly-paid employee of the university, she was not able to accept the salary-paid nursing position without turning in her red blazer.

Meyer bags first QB commit for 2013 class JeFF TYnDALL Lantern reporter

Coach Urban Meyer and the Ohio State football team are at it again. Quarterback prospect J.T. Barrett, out of Rider High School in Wichita Falls, Texas, has officially committed to OSU for the 2013 season. During his junior year, Barrett completed 102 of 171 passes for 1,605 yards, as he threw for 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Barrett also contributed 1,521 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground. OSU’s 10th commitment of the class stands 6-foot-1 and weighs 209 pounds. Recruiting website ranked Barrett as a four-star recruit and the No. 134 overall player in the 2013 class. The site also ranked him as the No. 6 dual-threat quarterback. Before finally committing to OSU Barrett narrowed his choices down to OSU, LSU, Texas Tech and Nebraska in March. As Meyer’s first quarterback signee, Barrett is expected to compete with 2012 signee Cardale Jones to eventually replace rising sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller. Meyer has had his fair share of success at recruiting the quarterback position, signing notable players such as Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow and Cam Newton (transferred to Auburn University) while coaching at the University of Florida.

Aaron Green / Lantern reporter

Rich Rinker (left) looks on as he and Jon Yake (right) wait for fans to enter Bill Davis Stadium April 17 at an OSU baseball game. Rinker and Yake have been OSU Redcoats for a combined 53 years.

Redcoats from 8A “I loved my Redcoat job too much,” she said. “I couldn’t give it up.” Rich, 59, said that if she were younger, she is not sure she would be able to hold a full-time position and be a Redcoat. “Young people don’t necessarily have the time,” she said. The time issue is also why she said she believes most Redcoats are generally older and considers herself one of the younger Redcoats. “Most other Redcoats I know are older than me,” she said. “If I were to guess the average age of a Redcoat, I’d say it were in the mid 50s, maybe higher.” Yake, 73, agreed with her about the average age of a Redcoat. “If they were to set an age limit, they would have a big turnover, that’s for sure,” he said with a smile. One of the job perks for the Redcoats is attending and watching OSU games when they’re not busy with assigned duties, Baca said. “We cheer and get into it like the fans do,” said 16-year Redcoat Rich Rinker. “We just have to watch what we say.” Yake said the fans like to see the Redcoats enjoy the action. “When we get into the games, I think it gets the fans excited seeing us like that,” Yake said. The opportunity to be in the stadium and have a fan presence while working was the main reason Yake said he became a Redcoat. He said he used to acquire football tickets through his boss at work, but when he left the company, he wanted a way to continue going to Ohio Stadium on Saturdays. “I still wanted to be a part of it and come and see the games,” he said. “I didn’t want to have to give that up.”

Learning about the Redcoat position from his wife’s hairdresser, he said the application process was simpler in 1975, his first year as a Redcoat. “Way back then, all you had to do was show up at the year’s first meeting and put your name in a hat,” he said. “They’d draw names and if you got your name drawn, you were a Redcoat.” Yake said he has enjoyed the past 37 years with no regrets and will continue to be an ambassador for the university and its athletic program. “I’ll continue to (be a Redcoat) as long as I’m enjoying it and having fun,” he said. “When the day comes that I’m not — whatever the reason may be — I’m done.” While the games might have enticed them to become a Redcoat, Yake and Rich said they get more out of being a Redcoat than free entries into football or basketball games. “It’s not only about going to the games,” Yake said. “You get to talk to a whole lot of people. They get to know you and you get to know them. You create friendships.” Rich said she too has benefitted from the experience of being a Redcoat. “Watching the game is secondary,” Rich said. “If I get time that’s great, but that’s not why I’m here. I’m here for the people. (Being a Redcoat) has allowed me to be more personable and come out of my shell a little bit. I’m thankful for that.”


sports Spring from 8A Braxton Miller. “I want to see him do the other stuff.” That emphasis on the passing game, though, is dependent on whether “the elements will allow it,” Meyer said. Even if the weather doesn’t cooperate, about 60,000 tickets for the Spring Game have already been distributed and Meyer said he hopes that number continues to grow as Saturday nears. “Oh, I hope it fills. Wouldn’t that be fun? Just come on out,” he said. “It’s what you expect out of Ohio State.” An entirely filled Ohio Stadium would top OSU’S 2009 attendance record of 95,722. And if Saturday’s open practice to OSU students is any indication, Meyer might have a fighting chance at breaking that record. Even four days since more than 3,000 Buckeyes students, faculty and fans crowded into the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, Meyer still gushed over the experience and the importance of connecting students to their football team. “It was awesome. I mean with all the negative crap and stuff that you hear and read … you know what,” Meyer said. “I saw a bunch of students out there with their fellow classmates enjoying a great day of practice.” Whether or not a similar atmosphere shapes up for the Spring Game remains to be seen, as dreary weather has notoriously been a thorn in the side concerning Spring Game attendance. It won’t, however, change Meyer’s determination to put the ball in the air Saturday. “The ball will be thrown a lot,” he said. “I don’t know if it’s going to be caught a lot.” Kickoff for Meyer’s first Spring Game is set for 1:30 p.m.

Howard, Roby enjoy Kerry Coombs’ banter PATrICK MAKS Senior Lantern reporter Ohio State cornerbacks Travis Howard and Bradley Roby aren’t shy about admitting their position coach, Kerry Coombs, is a bit of a trash talker. They said they’re the same way. “Me and Travis are already kind of like that,” said Roby, a rising redshirt sophomore. “He brings that same mentality, that hard-nose, trash-talking kind of play.” Roby said he likes it that way. “That’s how I am. I love that,” Roby said. “I’m right behind him doing the same thing.” Likewise, it seems Coombs’ fiery demeanor has also commanded Howard’s respect. But even more so, the rising redshirt senior said the guidance from the former Cincinnati assistant coach is what he and the rest of the corners need. “It’s definitely been a great change,” Howard said. “I mean, he’s a high intensity guy who’s willing to make sure we perfect our technique and make sure we work hard at whatever we do.” For Coombs, that feeling of admiration and respect is mutual. In addition to having what he called talented and gifted athletes, what has struck the 51-year-old the most is how diligently his players work. “They’re in my office poking their head in all the time,” he said. “They want to know what they can do to get better, they want to know where they fell short.” Coombs said it’s no secret that OSU has a “great history” of defensive secondary players. Outside the coaches’ offices, Coombs said there’s a wall commemorating eight first-round NFL Draft picks that the Buckeyes have produced throughout the years. Coombs said he thinks Roby will be the next to join the wall. “He’s big, and he’s fast, and he’s

physical, and he’s intelligent and he’s got great change of direction,” Coombs said. “His transition is outstanding. And if Bradley’s not a first-round draft pick down the road, that would be a shame.” Roby, who recorded 47 tackles and three interceptions in 2011, said being one of the greatest corners to play at OSU has been his goal since arriving in Columbus. “I think about it everyday,” he said. “When I came up here, that was my goal. My goal hasn’t changed. I feel like I’m definitely on path for that.” And Coombs’ approach to the position, he said, will not only aid him in reaching that level, but will holistically benefit the team. Roby said compared to last season’s heavy emphasis on press coverage, Coombs has the cornerbacks playing further off the receivers than ever before. That, Roby said, allows he and the other corners the freedom and ability to be a “ball hawk” and create turnovers via interceptions. “I mean, that’s why I play football,” he said. “I just love to make plays.” Similarly, Howard said playing off is something he’s looking forward to. “I mean, I feel like we were a press team last year, we didn’t have enough opportunities to make plays on the ball so he came in with a new technique,” he said. “Now we’re getting a lot of chances making plays on the balls and getting good vision on the quarterback.” By playing off, Roby said he finds himself in a better position to make the play that every corner dreams of in Saturday’s Spring Game. “I’m trying to get at least one picksix … it’s going to be there,” he said. “We’re going to have the pressure and they’re going to throw it up. I got to get a pick-six, I didn’t get one all last year, so I want a pick-six for sure.”

Michael Jackson tribute bringing thrills


Aly Mizesko Lantern reporter

Birds of a feather

Check out our weekly installment of Columbus’ Own. This week we profile Chicken Hawk Bird Getters.

weekend Thursday

Art in Bloom 10 a.m. @ Columbus Museum of Art 35th Annual Jazz Festival 6 p.m. @ Weigel Auditorium “romeo and Juliet” 7 p.m. @ Wexner Center Film/Video Theater

Michael Jackson’s signature dance moves and distinctive voice will be dancing across the Newport Music Hall stage Saturday, courtesy of Who’s Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band. The tribute band, created eight years ago in Chapel Hill, N.C., has performed worldwide, recreating Jackson’s musical talent before and after the King of Pop’s death. Doors for its Columbus show open at 7 p.m. Taalib York, a Brooklyn, N.Y., native and one of the two men who portray Jackson in Who’s Bad, has been with the band from the start. “I was a local musician trying to get on … singing hooks on people’s albums and working on my own,” York said. York said he was approached with the idea of being part of a Jackson tribute band when he was living in Chapel Hill. York said he had no problem stepping into the role of Jackson to be a part of Who’s Bad. “It really comes pretty natural to me being that, in a lot of ways … This is something that I’ve been doing since I was a kid,” York said. “Singing and dancing like Michael was second nature to me.” Although York’s own singing and song-writing styles are different from Jackson’s, when he’s performing with Who’s Bad, he attempts to make his performances as “Michael-focused as possible,” he said. “I look at it pretty much like, I’m turning into Michael,” York said. “What would Michael be doing, how would Michael be doing this song, how would he do this? “The way that you smile, the way that you point at the audience, the way that I work on my face to emulate him … making the audience believe that he’s there for a minute. That’s my strong point.” Joseph Bell, or JoBel, the other performer who portrays Jackson, is recovering from skin cancer. For this reason York will perform the entire show as Michael, like he did in the band’s earlier years, rather than the two men equally dividing the show’s songs.

Who’s Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band is scheduled to perform April 21 at Newport Music Hall. Doors open at 7 p.m. Going back to performing for the show’s entirety “was a very easy transition because I started (the show) out this way,” York said. The audience can expect a high-energy show, just as Jackson himself would have given them. “(Jackson is) a hard act to follow,” York said. “His energy level is ridiculous. Your energy level has to be ridiculous. That right now is what’s great about me doing the full show. It’s going to be continuous high energy.” York also said he tries to make his performance as Jackson “organic” as he can. “If you are a Michael fan, you’re going to feel him in the room,” York said. “When you make a face, or when you look at (the audience), or when you do the heart sign with your hands, people who know what that is have such a great reaction to it, and that feels great as a performer.” Who’s Bad has visited Columbus before, Marissa Luther, marketing manager at PromoWest Productions, said.

“It’s a fun atmosphere and environment and it’s a good show,” Luther said. Garland Caldwell of,, a music news and review website, had a similar experience with the band. “They came to town and rocked my world,” Caldwell wrote in a concert review from 2011. “Who’s Bad lives up to its self-adulating title and then some.” Who’s Bad aims for Jackson fans to relive their memories and experiences with Jackson, York said. “It’s a very full-of-life show,” York said. “You walk out (and) you’ll be laughing, you’ll be crying, you’ll go through lots of emotions. It’s a full-on Michael experience.” Tickets are $13 in advance and $15 the day of the show. Tickets can be purchased from Ticketmaster or Newport Music Hall box office.

Who’s Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band 7 p.m. @ Newport Music Hall

New Year’s Eve, the biggest party of the year and an indelible part of American culture, will never be the same, because the smiling face that welcomed numerous generations to the hope and promise of the new year will no longer be there to greet us. We lost that and so much more when Dick Clark passed away Wednesday. “America’s oldest teenager” was one of the hardest working men in show business. For 34 years, he brought music to the people as the host of “American Bandstand.” Hundreds of artists were able to share their talents with the country through the help of Clark. Beginning with an interview of Elvis Presley for the show’s first live airing in 1957, “Bandstand” assumed its place in American pop culture. Clark earned nine daytime Emmy Awards for his hosting. His work on the radio made him become host of “American Top 40” as well as the establishment of “The Dick Clark Radio Show.” The show was ahead of its time

Kyle Hendrickson as it was one of the earliest attempts at radio syndication. Across multiple mediums, Clark was able to leave his mark. In addition, Clark was there for 40 years to help welcome the nation to the New Year on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.” I personally cannot remember a single New Year’s Eve celebration that did not include the tradition of watching the ball drop in Times Square with his voice there to narrate the action and bring the spectacle to our homes.

When a 2004 stroke severely limited his speech, Clark was there the next year to assume his familiar role overlooking the action in New York City. I could not imagine it any other way. While at times he struggled, his speech noticeably improved every year to the point where he was close to assuming the same prominent role he had before the stroke. He approached this challenge with the same hard work he had used throughout his career. President Barack Obama passed along this statement upon news of Clark’s passing: “More important than his groundbreaking achievements was the way he made us feel — as young and vibrant and optimistic as he was.” Through all the achievements, Clark brought the same youthful enthusiasm to each of his media ventures. Perhaps, more than anything else, that infectious, wonderful attitude is his ultimate legacy. He will be missed. So long, Dick.

[ a +e ] Columbus’ Own

In an attempt to shine light on local music, The Lantern’s “Columbus’ Own” is a weekly series that will profile a new Columbus band every week.

Jazz-inspired Chicken Hawk Bird Getters spreads its wings Andrea Henderson Lantern reporter As the saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together,” but all one local band wants is to stand out. The Chicken Hawk Bird Getters, an alternative jazz group, continues to surprise some crowds with its impromptu acts as it brings its own twist to the jazz scene. The four-member band, made up of all Columbus residents, formed in 2008 with a mission to give a new face and meaning to jazz music, said Joey Gurwin, percussionist for the band. “The jazz scene is very uptight about what happens and doesn’t happen,” Gurwin said. “We kind of want to kick in the doors to that and give jazz music a ‘black eye’ in a way.” The band has since labeled its music as “jazz offensive,” which refers to the edginess and rough sound it adds to get back to the “roots” of the genre. “That’s what jazz offensive is, really — really pulling that emotional response out of people again that they had years ago with jazz music,” Gurwin said. The band spends a lot of time recording at Oranjudio Recording Studio, located at 1051 N. 4th St. “We like to catch people off guard — that’s part of whole ‘jazz-offensive’ thing,” Gurwin said. Chicken Hawk Bird Getters’ is scheduled to perform next 9 p.m. April 27 with Evan Oberla Project and J Rawls at Skully’s Music-Diner, located at 1151 N. High St., but a spontaneous performance on a street corner wouldn’t be unexpected in the meantime. “We like to play in odd places sometimes, like abandoned dance studios or outside at random places in the city,” Gurwin said. “We’re just as likely to play at Skully’s on Friday as we are to barrel into a city pool in the middle of summer and play a set.” Where the band plays is just as important to its artistic expression of what music it chooses to play, Gurwin said. Jahrie Smith, drummer for the band, said the band just wants people to get the musical experience they might not normally get otherwise. The band members want their art and expression to be heard and hope to put a positive spin on someone’s day.

Chicken Hawk Bird Getters is scheduled to perform at 9 p.m. April 27 at Skully’s Music-Diner. Just as the band might not always perform at the most conventional venues, the same kind of freedom is applied to the music it delivers. One minute the band could be performing an improvised rendition of “Gz and Hustlas” by Snoop Dogg, and the next minute a series of jazz ballads could be sounding from its instruments. “We have sort of created our own genre of music because we didn’t find any of the current genres suiting for what we wanted to say,” Gurwin said. The band also chooses its lineup of songs on impulse during its performances. “We let the energy of the show kind of dictate where we go, so we don’t write out our songs before the show,” Gurwin said. “We just go out there and play and just let whatever happens, happen.” The band refers to its style as a form of jazz but is just as likely to pull songs from other genres.

“Every band is an artistic expression to the people who are in it, so our chemistry is derived from our diversity, and that’s what we try to present,” Smith said. The diversity and originality that the band brings has received recognition from the likes of “Columbus Alive” and was once nominated as “best jazz group” by the Columbus Music Awards. “Whether someone loves what we do or is deeply offended by what we do, either way we know that they’re paying attention and really that’s the point of art,” Gurwin said. The band, in the midst of producing a vinyl record, has released two live albums, “To the Moon” and “Sketches,” which can be purchased online or at local record stores for about $7. It has also released an instrumental studio single “Don’t Trip.”

If you want something done, do it yourself. Two Ohio State alumni did just that as they made independent films to fit the style of movies that they would want to see. Ross Patterson, who graduated from OSU in 1999, and Tristan Drew, who graduated 1998, produced four films together through their production company, Street Justice Films. “It’s just trying to tell stories that the studio system won’t tell,” Patterson said of why the two decided to make the switch to independent film. “It’s the stories, comedically, that I’d like to see that people won’t see (otherwise).” Drew, who has been friends with Patterson since their college days when they were both in the Kappa Sigma Fraternity, combined his production talents with Patterson’s acting and writing skills so the duo would have the majority of creative control when developing films. “Ross had been doing some films with some

‘West side story’ is running through April 22 at the ohio Theatre. THEATRE REVIEW

‘West Side Story’ maintains high energy in unforgettable show T.k. BrAdy Lantern reporter Swarms of crowds were geared up for the Tuesday performance of “West Side Story” at the Ohio Theatre. Upon my arrival at the theatre, I felt like a tiny guppy swimming through the throngs of people into the lobby. After climbing a small flight of stairs to get to my section, I was graciously seated with a playbill and told to enjoy the show. The seats, while tightly packed, maintained their old-world charm as a glass tiered chandelier sparkled from the ceiling. Once the lights went down and the curtain went up, it was hard not to feel the energy from the Jets performer on stage. The high-intensity performance continued throughout the entire production, no matter which characters were on stage at any given

moment. There was not one point when an actor fell out of character or seemed to be “off.” Jerome Robbins’ recognizable choreography was accurate and unforgettable. The modernized ballet used the entire stage while allowing the dancers to stay in their personal space. The music of the show took a backseat to the phenomenal dancing. While there were no real pitch or key issues with the vocals, the actual movement of the actors felt much more inspired. One major issue that some might be surprised to find while watching this performance is a language barrier. The plot focused on the constant opposition between Puerto Ricans and Americans in New York City during the 1950s, and much of the dialogue and lyrics from the Puerto Rican characters is in Spanish. While the Spanish was basic and the terminology was minimal, most of the vocabulary was Puerto Rican slang and hard to understand, partially because the actors had nailed the accents.

Aside from the comprehensibility, other aspects of the show, like costuming and set design, were transforming. I felt like I was in New York City with plenty of grays and blues for sets of fire escapes and the docks at night. The costumes provided a contrast to the bleak sets with vibrant purple, yellow and orange, the Jets family’s signature colors. The costumes ranged from tattered to tasteful and gave the audience one more thing to admire about the show. One of the most memorable moments of the show was the gym scene. You’ll be brought back instantly to your hilarious first high school dance when teenage hormones started to rage. All in all, the show is a memorable and enjoyable experience for everyone from the Broadway buff to the shower singer. Grade: A-

other people that we knew in the industry,” Drew said. “Around 2008, we got together and said we’d be better off doing it together.” The two started a film division of Drew’s production company, which he founded in 2004, Drew said. Drew got his start in the film industry as a production assistant after he graduated from OSU. He worked his way up the production ladder, eventually producing music videos for performers such as Usher and commercials and creating a music video production company, Patterson began his career as an actor after graduation from OSU. “I initially got my start in teen movies. I did ‘The New Guy,’ ‘Accepted’… I had a blast shooting these movies, but you can’t do teen movies forever,” Patterson said. “I’m a comedian. I was basically getting cast off of looks. I wanted to make something that I wanted to see.” In 2008, Patterson fired his agent and merged his efforts with Drew’s in the production company. “We started this company and in the last two or three years, we’ve made four films and a TV show,” Patterson said. “It’s been pretty amazing. No one’s putting out this many films at the same time.” Patterson’s creative abilities as a writer help to expedite the pre-production process, Drew said. “Because he’s the creator and the writer, it makes it a lot easier for us to get (the films) done,” Drew said. “When Ross brings the scripts to the table ready to shoot … we can get it done right away.” All of the films Drew and Patterson have made have been comedies, but each film is different from the others, Patterson said. “Poolboy: Drowning Out the Fury,” out now on iTunes and On Demand, “is one of the craziest films of all time,” Patterson said. He compared another one of their films, “FDR: American Badass!” to an “Airplane!” or “The Naked Gun” type of movie. “It’s the first time where something that we’ve done has gone viral,” Drew said of the film, out in theaters this summer. “We’re still fairly new to creating our own content. … It’s been a really neat process over the past five months to have something that well-received.” The trailer for “FDR: American Badass!” was featured on a few weeks ago, and at film festivals, including Comic-Con, screenings for the films have repeatedly sold out. The DVD is scheduled for release on Sept. 24. For the rest of this story, visit
