The first stop on President Barack Obama’s campaign tour is Ohio State, and students are full of opinions about his visit. Obama will speak at the Schottenstein Center at 1:25 p.m. Saturday, with the doors opening at 10:30 a.m. First lady Michelle Obama will join her husband in support of his campaign. The public event on OSU’s campus is the official beginning of the 2012 election, and Obama has a rally planned at Virginia Commonwealth University later Saturday. This rally marks Obama’s second visit to OSU’s campus in about two months. Obama spoke to about 2,600 people about his energy policies in the RPAC’s Tom W. Davis Special Events Gym on March 22. Prior to that, on Oct. 17, 2010, Obama spoke to about 35,000 people on the Oval about his movement of change. Republican candidate Mitt Romney has also been in Central Ohio in the past week. Romney spoke at Otterbein College last Thursday about the economy and his plan to bring the nation back to a world leader. Thara Nagarajan, a second-year in anthropology, said she is not surprised Obama is coming to campus. “I have always been a huge supporter for Obama and I campaigned for him in 2008,” Nagarajan said. “I am not very surprised that he is coming to the Ohio State just because we are a swing state. If he wins in Ohio, he has a really good shot of winning in the whole election.” Obama won Ohio when he claimed the presidency against Sen. John McCain in 2008. Tara Besancon, a first-year in pre-medical dietetics, agreed that Ohio is an important state for Obama. “I think his campaign is looking for projecting the young generation,” Besancon said. “Ohio is obviously a big state for voting. We are the perfect school for him to come to because we have pretty much the biggest Ohio student populations.” Nagarajan also commented on the importance of appealing to the young generation.

Obama announced he would be kicking off his 2012 campaign with a speech on OSU’s campus. “I figure he realized that young college-age kids are one of the most important demographics,” Nagarajan said. “He also realized college campuses have more liberal students, so it makes sense he is coming.” Some students, like Lisa Rausch, a third-year in dental hygiene, are not so excited about Obama’s visit.

Many students are able to transfer into OSU with significantly lower admission standards than they would have straight out of high school.

Some Ohio State students who spent their high school years working toward a high grade-point average and ACT score might be surprised to find out that for transfer students with at least 30 credit hours of college or university experience, high school records don’t matter. Stephanie Sanders, interim director of admissions operations at OSU, said the factors considered for entering freshmen differ from those considered for transfer students. “Certainly admission is more competitive for entering, first-year students than it is for transfer students,” Sanders said. “Clearly the admissions criteria speaks for itself.” Students who choose to enroll as first-years without any college or university experience are evaluated based upon three principles: successful completion of a college prep curriculum, high school rank and/or GPA and performance on the SAT or ACT. Students transferring from a college or university with less than 30 semester hours are evaluated based upon a combination of their high school and previous collegiate performances, but students with more than 30 semester hours are evaluated solely on their college or university record. “You can’t tell everything you need to know based upon a grade-point average,” Sanders said. “But sure, it’s likely that a

student who has a (3.0) or better is going to do a little better than the student who just has a (2.0).” Tressa Casey, a third-year in athletic training, said she anticipated coming to college throughout her high school years and strived for a solid high school record. She enrolled at OSU as a first-year in 2009. “(Coming to college) was definitely a big goal of mine,” Casey said. “I knew I wanted to come to Ohio State because I enjoyed the camaraderie of Ohio State.” Casey said that although some students might not perform well in high school, she understands that coming to college might prompt changes. “I understand that some people will do a lot better in college than they will in high school, so I get where they’re coming from, but then again, you could have just taken the bullcrap classes and gotten a 4.0 your first semester in college,” Casey said. “I don’t know how I feel about it.” The majority of transfer students who enroll at OSU have more than 30 semester hours at their time of transfer, Sanders said. “For most of our transfer students we don’t have any idea how they did in high school because we don’t see their records and we don’t see their ACT scores,” Sanders said. “For many students, their performance in high school doesn’t really matter anymore.” Jerry Mancino transferred to OSU for Autumn Quarter 2009, and after a year of trying to get into the health sciences

Speaking from first-hand experience, which includes saving his neighbor from a burning building, Mayor of Newark, N.J., Cory Booker offered his thoughts on empowerment and making a difference. Booker spoke to an audience of almost 300 Ohio State students and community members Tuesday. Booker’s speech was part of the First-Year Distinguished Speaker series hosted by the offices of Undergraduate Admissions and First Year Experience. Booker said his message for students was one about power. “It’s all about understanding that you have the incredible power to make change in your world, and you shouldn’t let anyone take away that power,” Booker said. In his speech, Booker touched on politics, but focused more on an individual’s importance in the world. “Never let your inability to do everything undermine your ability to do something,” Booker said.

“Life is not about the big act, the big speech, the big election. I know we’re in election season and it’d be nice to think, ‘If you just elect this person the world will change.’ No. The world won’t change unless you do.” Julie Richardson, the coordinator for the event, said selecting Booker to speak was the right choice. “He embodies everything we want our firstyear speaker to be,” Richardson said. “He’s a young, dynamic leader who can bring inspiration to students and the community.” Booker has earned media attention recently for helping to save one of his neighbors from her burning home. He was also named one of the most influential people of 2011 by Time Magazine. Booker’s influence was not lost on some students who attended the speech. Ally Mooney, a first-year in public affairs, said introducing Booker was “an honor.” “I don’t think I’ve ever met a more engaging, humble person,” Mooney said. “I don’t think I’ll ever forget this.” Booker made an OSU connection when he touched on recent hate crimes on campus.

students, staff and alumni gathered in front of the ohio union May 1 to protest the privatization of osu’s parking assets.

OSU students, faculty protest against university’s plan to privatize parking KAne AndeRson For The Lantern anderson.1995@osu.edu About three dozen Ohio State students and faculty could be heard loud and clear as they lined High Street in front of the Ohio Union to protest the university’s plan to privatize parking. “We’re here to show support for the faculty and staff, so they’ll know that we are on their side,” said CJ Jones, a second-year in public affairs. “And also to send the university a clear message that we will not stand for our voices being ignored.” Protesters distributed fliers Tuesday with President E. Gordon Gee’s telephone number, urging people to call him directly with their complaints. Gee sent an email April 23 to students, staff and faculty, detailing the administration’s plan and the issuing of a Request for Proposal from companies interested in leasing parking operations. May 30 is the deadline for bids, when the OSU Board of Trustees is expected to make a decision and a recommendation for final approval, Gee said in the email. The email referenced the university’s RFP to potential vendors, asking for bids for control of parking assets. The minimum bid is supposed to be $375 million for a 50-year lease. “My expectation is that the $375 (million) is a floor, my expectation is that if we’ve done the right things that we will get a substantially higher bid,

so I’m just betting that we’re going to get the $400 million,” Gee told The Lantern. Don’t Sell Our University, a group of students and community members, sent an email Monday in response, claiming that Gee disregarded opposition to parking privatization. The email referenced a survey that showed 84 percent of OSU faculty oppose parking privatization. “This (survey) made us realize that students (and) faculty don’t have power,” said Omar Gowayed, a second-year in mechanical engineering and a member of Don’t Sell Our University. “We’re sick and tired of being pushed around and silenced on our own campus.” Lynda Seelie, an office manager at Drinko Hall, was present at the protest. She said she does not want to see a corporation take over parking or for parking rates to increase by up to 10 percent. “We already pay too much as it is,” Seelie said. Jones also expressed concerns about the deal. “This is a short-sided deal,” Jones said. “It could stand that a faculty member will pay $8,000 a year for a pass in 50 years.” Some protesters took their actions to Bricker Hall, which holds the offices of Gee and some Board of Trustee members. Gowayed said he is willing to take necessary action to make his objections known. “I’ve already told my dad to have lawyers prepared for me,” Gowayed said.

The man responsible for coining the term “Arab Spring,” Marc Lynch, visited Ohio State’s Mershon Center for International Security Studies as part of the center’s Islam and Democracy Speaker Series. The revolutionary movement that has swept across the Arab world began in December 2010 and it seemed to have a domino effect on other Arab countries. Although the occurrence of the uprisings came as a surprise to many Arab scholars, Lynch said the Arab revolution had been developing over the course of a decade. “What we saw in 2010 and 2011 was … something where people who have been struggling and striving in a whole variety of creative and increasingly effective ways for at least a decade broke through,” Lynch said. In front of about 70 people at the Mershon Center, Lynch said the Arab Spring had a set of distinct characteristics, which he said had a certain degree of “uniqueness” to them. Characteristics included the level of mobilization in sectors and communities that have not been mobilized and the unification of Arab political space. Protesters comprised mainly of disenfranchised youth, union workers and activists joining forces in a fairly non-ideological coalition. “There was something new in January of 2011 and that was that this group of activists managed for the first time to form effective linkages out in the border mass publics,” Lynch told the crowd on Tuesday. In the case of Egypt in 2011, the number of “creative and experienced” activists went from about 5,000 in the streets to suddenly a million. Protesters in search of reform in their country, they weren’t happy with their dictators. What made the uprisings successful in Tunisia and Egypt was that former Tunisian president Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali and former Egyptian resident Hosni Mubarak, were taken by surprise and Lynch called that a crucial difference between the current Arab Spring and all other previous demonstrations in the region. “They had security forces deployed, they had all of their usual things in place to prevent protest,” Lynch said. “But if it had been 5,000 people, they would’ve won hands down, no question.” Apart from the large mass demonstrations, what

Marc lynch, the man who coined the term “Arab spring,” visited osu May 1 at the Mershon center. set the Arab Spring apart from previous demonstrations was the sense of unity amongst all Arab nations, Lynch said. The issue was no longer that of internal and local struggles it became a common struggle for all Arabs. Zach Rybarczyk, a third-year in political science, said he has a positive outlook toward the effectiveness of the Arab Spring and said he shares similar views as Lynch. “In my opinion, the optimistic opinion on the future of Arab uprising, it’s a viewpoint that I don’t think we have here in the U.S. very often,” Rybarczyk said. “I believe we’re more pessimistic that military rule or Islamist rule in Egypt will crush any democracy that has taken place so far.” Despite the success of some Arab nations in toppling their dictators regimes, countries like Syria and Bahrain are under siege. Lynch said what differentiates the protests in Bahrain and Syria from the rest was the use of brutal military force against demonstrators. “In Bahrain, you had more than half of the country’s population in the streets protesting,” Lynch said. “When the troops roll in, clear the streets, the Bahraini regime then begins a comprehensive crack down … which led to a whole cell campaign of arrests of anybody suspected of involvement in activism.”

answers and just walk away. It’s kind of rude.” James Chevako, a firstyear in finance, said he is also not interested in going. “I won’t be going to the rally,” Chevako said. “I don’t really know that much about what he is coming for. Typically I haven’t really agreed with his viewpoints.” While Justin Schick, a second-year in material science engineering, is not an Obama supporter, he said he thinks the rally will be good for students. “I think it’s awesome that he’s visiting on campus even though I am not an Obama supporter,” Schick said. “It’s an opportunity for students to learn more about their president and the upcoming election.”

Transfer from 1A program, he transferred out to attend Cleveland State where he could major in health and education. “I did not get into the health sciences program because it’s extremely competitive and my grades just weren’t up to par,” Mancino said. “If I knew I had to be absolutely spot-on on all of my work I would have done it from the start.” According to university records, 919 transfer students enrolled for Autumn Quarter earned GPAs of between 3.0 and 3.49 at their previous institutions and 640 students earned between a 3.5 and 4.0. However, 855 enrolled transfer students earned between a 2.0 and a 2.99 and six students enrolled earned between a 0.01 and 1.99 GPA at their previous institutions. The average ACT score of the entering, first-year class in Autumn Quarter was 28, and 90 percent of admitted freshmen were in the top 25 percent of their graduating high school class. Transfer students are not included in the overall statistical summary of OSU, Sanders said. Graduation rates, average GPA, are based solely upon students who come to OSU with no prior university or college experience. “It’s a completely different kind of data and more difficult to track,” Sanders said. “It’s hard to identify a cohort for transfer students because they’re so varied in what they’ve done before they’ve come to Ohio State.” Mancino said he believes the university doesn’t include transfer students in the statistical summary for alternative reasons. “I feel like they’re scared if they do include those students, it will reflect badly on the school academically,” Mancino said. “Not that they don’t have faith in people, but they just want the school to look more excellent than the people who go here.” Casey agreed. “The university is a business, so if you want to take someone’s money and it’s not going to ruin the overall statistics of the school, I get it,” Casey said. Sara King, a first-year in sociology, transferred in Winter Quarter because she wanted to start working toward a bachelor’s degree. King said a lot of people make plans to enroll as transfer students for financial reasons.

Mayor from 1A There have been a string of hate crimes on and off campus that have resulted in hate crime alerts from the university. Booker said it is important to know the difference between tolerance and love. “Tolerance is a really cynical state of mind,” Booker said. “I want to move to love.” Booker said love is important because it requires us to know and understand one another, and it denotes a need for each other. Caitlynn Cole, a first-year in pre-anthropologic science, said she liked Booker’s point. “I like that he looks at problems and doesn’t focus on differences between people involved, he focuses on what you have in common,” Cole said.

“A lot of people are finding it 10 times cheaper to just go to Columbus State (Community College) for like a year,” King said. “And it doesn’t matter what they got on the ACT because nobody really cares anymore.” Sanders said there is a lot of evidence to prove that students with at least one year of college experience are prepared to be successful wherever they go, “and are better prepared, in many cases, than they were coming out of high school to be successful here.” Will Kopp, vice president of institutional advancement at Columbus State, agreed with Sanders. “For many, Columbus State is an introduction to the rigors of college-level academics in a setting that is focused on excellent teaching and student success,” Kopp said in an email. “With a firm foundation from Columbus State and an associate degree, they are then well prepared to transfer to a four-year university.” Eighty percent of students who enter as firstyears graduate within six years and 72 percent of transfer students graduate within that same time frame, Sanders said. Evan Lentz, a second-year in finance, transferred from Ohio University in Autumn Quarter. “I always wanted to come to Ohio State but didn’t get in after high school,” Lentz said. “But I also didn’t want to stay at home and go to community college or something.” Lentz said he agrees with the admissions policy because high school and college vary in many different ways. “As long as they’re accepting the kids who are doing well, if they let others in after that it’s fine by me,” Lentz said. “I goofed around a lot during high school hours and stuff, and after I came to college and entered the real-world setting, I think I buckled down and took it a lot more seriously.”

Mooney said she appreciated Booker’s connection to students. “With his speech, he took what he was passionate about and connected it to students here,” Mooney said. “He reminded us that we have no boundaries at this university. We have the world at our fingertips.” Booker spoke about diversity and embracing cultures, sharing with the audience that he studies different religious works such as the Bible, the Quran and the Torah in order to understand people better. After his speech, Booker embraced everyone who waited to meet him in a line of about 150 people in the lobby of the Drake Performance and Event Center. The line never moved, but Booker did. He walked toward each person in line with a smile, posing for photographs as he wiped droplets of sweat from his forehead.

Astronomers receive $5M for research Allie JAnnecK Lantern reporter janneck.4@osu.edu

Astronomers at Ohio State are going to be able to look, with some of the largest cameras ever made, into space to find undiscovered planets. Four OSU astronomers were awarded a $5 million contract from the Korea Astronomy and Space Sciences Institute. They will build three 340-megapixel cameras for KASI that are to be mounted on a telescope to examine space to find planets. OSU competed against other teams in different states and countries for the award. Andrew Gould, the Thomas Jefferson Professor for Discovery and Space Exploration and the mediator between engineers and scientists for this project, said their team had the upper hand. “Our bid was likely to be extremely competitive because of better knowledge of the project and the organization of our labs,” Gould said. “The lab is dedicated to scientific missions and, you know, not profits … So it’s able to take a long-term view and it’s not just trying to poach different projects.” The astronomers worked with KASI in 2008 to find out what they were going to accomplish. Chengho Han, a Ph.D. graduate from OSU in 1997 and Korean scientist of Chungbuk National University, helped OSU with this project. Gould said the overall goal of the project is to find planets, such as free-floating planets that have been knocked out of orbit, by use of gravitational microlensing. “If two stars get lined up really closely, the one in front is going to bend the light from the one in back and magnify it,” Gould said. “And that means if you are watching this star, even if you can’t see that star, the star comes by and when it gets really close, the star is going to get brighter.” These light curves can be analyzed from the camera and there is only one in a million stars that will be magnified, he said. If there is a 12:41:30 PM planet near the star, the planet’s gravity enhances the light from the star and will create a “blip,” which can be used to find that planet. Gould said he was one of the pioneers of this method. “Twenty years ago when people first started doing this, I personally developed another method that people are using today to find the planets,” Gould said. “After they find these microlensing events, they announce them and then other people get smaller telescopes and just look at those events. They’re not trying to find them — they already know where they are.” These events are extremely rare to see and were even disproved by Albert Einstein in 1912. Rudi Mandl, a scientist from Czechoslovakia, in 1936 told Einstein to re-evaluate his thinking. Einstein doubted these events even after he published his work. Jennifer Yee, a graduate fellow in astronomy and Gould’s assistant, helps him with this work because of how complicated it can be. “I work intensively on finding planets with microlensing, but not specifically related to this camera,” Yee said. “The knowledge is related — they are all tangled up by each other.” Yee and Gould have worked together on these other projects and so far have discovered between 15 and 20 planets. They also work together by setting up the network between all the different countries involved. The Korea Microlensing Telescope Network is the process by which this project is going to work. The connections are found in Chile, Australia and South Africa. These are the areas where the three cameras are going to be placed, because of the different time zones, they can survey 24 hours.

computer rendering of the 1.6-meter diameter telescopes under construction for chile, south Africa and Australia.

Bruce Atwood, research and project scientist, is helping build the electronics for the camera and said it’s a long process because of its magnitude. “We have to deliver the first of three cameras in July of next year,” Atwood said. “The camera is about 20 inches in diameter … the lens is about 12 to 13 inches in diameter. … There are lots and lots of pieces.” One of these pieces is the Dewar flask, named after James Dewar, a Scottish chemist and physicist. It works like a thermos and keeps the camera cold, near minus 200 C, so it doesn’t overheat from too much light. This device helps scientists get long exposures of the solar system, so they’re able to see much more than they could before. Another interesting facet of the camera is the charge coupled device, which is the most important part of the camera because it lets in the light and records the images, Atwood said. These CCDs will be some of the largest ever made so it can get the 340 megapixels. Microlensing became more known during the 1980s, when Bohdan Paczynski, a Princeton professor, said these CCDs, which are in every camera, could be used to take pictures of the stars. KASI has jurisdiction over the project and it makes sure the work done to the contract is successful.

campus Copious USG opportunities still open Teddy Ellison Lantern reporter ellison.1560@osu.edu

There are still many opportunities for students to be involved in USG President Taylor Stepp (left) and Vice President Kevin Arndt’s (right) team.

Elections might be over, but there are still many different positions students can fill in the Undergraduate Student Government. USG focuses on 12 major areas that range from student life to information technology and almost everything in between. There are more than 25 different committees and hundreds of positions assigned to students every year. Jake Bruner, a third-year in political science, has been involved in USG for the past three years. He is in charge of receiving and helping look over all the applicants for next year’s positions. “We want people who put in the time and represent the organization well,” Bruner said. Next year, Bruner will be chief of staff for incoming USG president Taylor Stepp. Bruner said he is excited to get started on improving USG. Stepp, a second-year in Russian and public affairs, won the USG election April 15 with his vice-president, Kevin Arndt, a third-year in public affairs and political science. Bruner said he thinks safety might have the biggest impact on campus next year. “Safety sticks out with everything that has been going on,” Bruner said. “I know Taylor and Kevin are going to try and push for joint jurisdiction.”

Joint jurisdiction is increased cooperation between Ohio State Police and the Columbus Division of Police. Celia Wright, a first-year in exploration, served as a USG intern this past year. Several students have said they worry about the time commitment when looking to get involved, but Wright said this concern is manageable. “Working on a committee is about an hour to an hour-and-a-half commitment each week,” Wright said. Leslie Wu, a first-year in pharmacy, has served as an intern for the past year and said she enjoyed her time with USG. “My favorite part of the program was meeting everyone and being able to see what everyone (in USG) did,” Wu said. Andrew Tichenor, a fourth-year in political science, has served on USG for three years in a variety of roles. He started as a South Campus senator, became a chairman on Student Life in Senate, and moved on to the director of Student Life in Cabinet. “We look for people who have ideas, leadership and experience; but no one will be turned away,” Tichenor said. USG members encouraged students to apply for positions and can get as much out of it as they are willing to put in. “The work we do is not just throwing events or giving money to philanthropies, but we also have a voice in student operations and university decisions,” Tichenor said. Applications are due Friday and can be found on the USG website.

Students given shot to take films to Hollywood Rose Zhou Lantern reporter zhou.371@osu.edu Directors of three student-made movies on Ohio State’s campus are going to win a trip to Hollywood in June to put their creation up against the best in the nation. The annual Campus MovieFest travels to 70 campuses across the United States and abroad to give students an opportunity to make a fiveminute short film in seven days. Students across the country are given the necessary equipment and training to tell their stories for free. “One of the things that is very cool about Campus Movie Festival is that they kind of want to make it clear that it is a campus theme,” said Jack McClintock, a fourth-year in operations management, who is in charge of the judge panel selection for OSU this year. “They want to make it a really neat opportunity for Ohio State students, and because of that many people can get involved from Ohio State, given the opportunities to do stuff like judging, or having the ability to get all of the equipment for free.” The festival launched its OSU event at the Center for Student Leadership and Service in the Ohio Union Tuesday at noon. As part of the last segment of its yearlong satellite tour, the festival is coming to an end of campus-based competitions after its stop at OSU, and is advancing to the grand finale in Hollywood this June. The MovieFest crew handed out Apple laptops and Panasonic HD video cameras to 35 teams of OSU students from various majors at its event Tuesday. They will collect the equipment and short films from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, and screen the top 16 movies from OSU on May 10 at Gateway Film Center, said Nishant Gogna, Campus MovieFest promotions manager. “Even if you don’t have much experiences in terms of making a film, in terms of technical achievement,” Gogna said. “At the end of the day, my personal advice is all about the story, and how well it can move an audience, and I believe that you don’t need to have any experience at all in filmmaking to really understand how to tell a story, and that’s where true talent shines.” The average number of teams participating this year in each college is about 70, Gogna said. “This year it’s a little lower at the Ohio State, and it’s one of the advantages for Ohio State students to have a less pool of competition,” Gogna said. “Your chances of going to Hollywood is obviously much greater statistically.” As one of the Buckeyes who entered the grand finale last year, McClintock’s short film “Spare Change” won the Campus Best Drama Award at OSU. This year, as the production coordinator of Ohio Union Television, he has been coordinating with the Campus MovieFest to bring it back to OSU since last December. McClintock said the judge selection process is

Anyone from OSU can be a judge as long as he or she has an understanding of film in general, regardless of previous film production experience. “I have a template email that Campus Movie Festival gives to me,” McClintock said. “And I literally just went to different departments’ websites, and found OSU faculty members, shot them an email to see if they would be interested.” McClintock will assemble the student judges by operating a “blanket email.” He plans to email a variety of students, with the first 12 students who respond getting the chance to be the judges. He said students interested in becoming judges are also welcome to contact him via email. The CMF Hollywood event is a signature three-day grand finale where celebrities, industry insiders and industry professionals come to join numerous student workshops. “All the students can showcase their films, network with other professionals as well,” Gogna said. “A lot of students’ careers launch through Campus MovieFest at that event.”

Henry Liu, a second-year in economics, picked up equipment Tuesday and plans to direct and edit his original action/drama short film, which tells a detective story. “I am somewhat confident,” Liu said. “I think it’s a decent story, and I think I can do a good job with it, just hoping go with the flow.”

Sang-Mok Cha, KASI employee, is at OSU overseeing the project and relaying the progress back to Korea. The other scientists on this project are Tom O’Brien, research specialist in astronomy and project engineer, and Scott Gaudi, associate professor of astronomy. The cost of this project is about $30 million for the Koreans and it is a major commitment for them since the United States currency is higher than theirs. OSU must stay on target with their contract and make sure they outline all their expenses finely. Despite the extreme cost, Gould said he is hopeful for this project and looks forward to its completion around June 2014. “The KMTN is going to revolutionize things by just having an entire system that’s been designed from scratch in order to be able to do this,” Gould said.

The Lantern will have daily coverage this week of “The Avengers,” which is scheduled to hit theaters this Friday.

Audiences, comic fans look to marvel at ‘The Avengers’ saRaH PFlEddERER Asst. arts editor pfledderer.2@osu.edu From a screechy-voiced mom to a teenage vampire slayer and kid toys, Joss Whedon has worked with a slew of characters. But when faced with pairing some of arguably the most powerful forces in superhero history, some people wondered if he actually assembled a box office hit. Friday, they’ll have the chance to decide. Marvel Entertainment’s “The Avengers,” which is slated to hit theaters Friday, centers around Nick Fury, director of an international peacekeeping agency, S.H.I.E.L.D, who tries to get Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk and Thor to ban together with a vengeance toward Thor’s brother, Loki, who is trying to take over the world. “I felt very much like Nick Fury,” Whedon, director of the film, said in a conference call with The Lantern. “You do feel that responsibility that you’ve got to get all of these people to give their best. For him it’s in battle, and for me it’s when we’re rolling to really come up with their best stuff and play off each other as well as possible.” Jared Gardner, an associate professor in English and film studies and director of the popular culture studies minor at Ohio State, said he started collecting “The Avengers” comics when he was 4 years old, after the series was created in 1963. Gardner said he and others who grew up with the comics have long anticipated seeing the story

on the big screen, and he has faith in Whedon’s ability to translate the comic to film. “I think as a writer and as a creative person, he’s got absolutely the right temperament for it, but I have no idea what qualifies somebody to work with these multimillion-dollar egos,” Gardner said in reference to some of the A-list actors in the film. Gardner said he thinks Whedon’s biggest challenge was “finding a way to manage all these different, not just characters, but personalities.” “How on earth can these people work together?” he said. Whedon said he was able to handle the cast because he can relate to most of the characters. “The fact that the Avengers are all really, really messed up people, I think is a fine reflection of me,” Whedon said. “So it’s not hard for me to fall into the cadences of these people. In fact, it’s a lot easier when you’ve already seen them being acted in the other movies.” “The Avengers” movie succeeds the origin stories of its characters, which have all been made into films as well. Listing directors Jon Favreau of “Iron Man,” Kenneth Branagh of “Thor,” Joe Johnston of “Captain America: The First Avenger,” and Louis Lettieri of “The Incredible Hulk,” Whedon said, “There’s no way you could make a movie that looked like (theirs) ... My own style is actually kind of smack dab in the middle of what all those guys do.” Jeff Stang, store manager at Laughing Ogre Comics, located at 4258 N. High St., said every review he’s read about the film has been “glowing” and has hinted that Whedon has “pulled off a minor miracle.”

Although the Laughing Ogre hasn’t seen a rise in its sales of “The Avengers” comics since trailers for the movie were released, Stang said it’s normal because people usually want to read the comics after seeing the movie. He said, however, he’s unsure of how much attention “The Avengers” comics will receive after Friday’s release because there are so many issues to choose from. “The problem with ‘The Avengers’ is that there’s 60 years of continuity and so to a lot of people, it’s just overwhelming,” Stang said. “That’s the problem usually with the superhero movies, is that people want to read the comics but they have no idea where to start.” He suggested those interested should start with the “Avengers Assemble” comic book series, which has nearly the same cast as the movie. Stang also predicted “The Avengers” will do better in the box office than “The Dark Knight Rises,” which is scheduled for release in July, because it will appeal to all demographics. “It’s going to bring in young and old alike,” Stang said. “It’s one of those movies that I don’t think it’s going to be excluding any kind of audience.” Gardner agreed and said he thinks Iron Man will be the most attractive to audiences. Thor and the Hulk will appeal to younger audiences and Captain America will draw in older audiences because he’s a World War II hero. The film has already grossed $260.5 million worldwide since its overseas premiere April 25, according to Box Office Mojo. Brad Miller, a first-year in business, said he’s

going to see the movie for Robert Downey Jr., who plays Iron Man, and Scarlett Johansson, who plays S.H.I.E.L.D agent Black Widow. “I really liked both Iron Man movies,” Miller said. “I could really care less about the other ones.” Some students aren’t as hyped as others about the film. “I liked Iron Man, and I know that (Avengers) is getting good reviews, I just have no investment in it,” said Zach McKee, a first-year in molecular genetics. “I don’t know enough about the fictional universe.” Still, Garder predicted “The Avengers” will be a success. “I think it will be, for Marvel Entertainment, its best opening weekend,” he said. Gardner added he will be interested to see how Whedon stepped up to the challenge as a director. “It’s going to be interesting to see somebody who has never really directed a movie on that size, a budget on a scale he’s never done, how well he rises to the challenge,” Gardner said. But Whedon said he thinks Marvel chose him as director for “The Avengers” precisely because he could bring something fresh and new to the concept of comic book heroes. “I think Marvel has a great nose for a director who has a passionate vision, who’s not famous for turning out big-budget hits, but will bring something a little bit fresh to the concept of a hero movie,” he said. “It’s one of the things that I respect the most about them.” Patrick Cooley contributed to this story.

Quadruple the heroes, quadruple the quality. Such is the case for “The Avengers,” the first in Marvel’s cinematic canon to be an honest-togoodness grand slam. “The Avengers” follows Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and later Thor (Chris Hemsworth), who are assembled when Thor’s brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston), is brought to Earth through a portal created by the Tesseract, a cube with unlimited energy. Led by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and aided by Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), S.H.I.E.L.D. is charged with stopping Loki before he and the alien Chitauri race go to full-scale war to enslave Earth over the rights to the Tesseract and its power. Lost in many of the overblown, action-riddled Marvel films is story. Neither the “Iron Man” films, despite Downey Jr.’s charisma, nor the woeful Sam Raimi “Spider-Man” films, for example, were able to keep up much of a cohesive narrative with so many things exploding in the distance. “The Avengers” is different. Whedon, the pop culture guru whose credits include “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Firefly,” brings a melodious mesh of humor, story and ass-kicking action to the table. “The Avengers” is not offensively stupid like a lot of its superhero ilk, which is a breath of fresh air in a climate of bourgeois cinema favorites adopted from comic books such as “Transformers.” Rather, “The

Avengers” is a total blast without ever resorting to too many gratuitous shots of Johansson’s lady lumps and leg-humping dogs. Perhaps more commendable is Whedon’s symbiosis of different universes. Whedon likely had to walk on egg shells writing a script combining character and story arcs of beloved heroes with devoted individual bases, and the end result is one that’s largely faithful and without too much clunky exposition. If there’s any semblance of a complaint, it’s that “The Avengers” is a bit slow in parts. At 143 minutes, “The Avengers” isn’t particularly swift, but once S.H.I.E.L.D.’s invisible airship starts blowing up and New York City is later invaded by the gnarly Chitauri warriors, “The Avengers” shifts into overdrive and delivers one of the most awe-inspiring final acts in recent memory. It also needed more Hulk, who was largely the most enjoyable Avenger to watch, especially near the end, when he provides much of the film’s comic relief. That’s nit-picking, however, as “The Avengers” is a true romp, one that’s both fun and funny without ever feeling too frivolous. Even Loki, who wasn’t especially menacing in 2011’s “Thor,” was a surprisingly sufficient villain, even if he doesn’t carry the same star power as some other Marveluniverse baddies. In fact, when Captain America instructs the Hulk to “smash,” he foreshadows “The Avengers’” success, as that’s exactly what this film will be, both critically and financially. “The Avengers” is rated PG-13 and is slated to hit theaters Friday.

[ 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 Thursday.

Bonneville aims to become driving force in local music scene aManda aBnEy Lantern reporter abney.14@osu.edu Bonneville has been trying to break into the Columbus music scene since its members started college at Ohio State more than a decade ago, and it is finally getting the recognition it was seeking. “We have been working at it for a while, and it’s not easy to try and break through, but we are just going to keep doing it because we love it,” singer Ryan Pitts said. The band’s latest single, “Feel It,” was voted No. 1 on the CD101 Five Spot May 1. “That song sums it up, in my opinion, the direction we are going and the attitude just in general of our band musically right now,” guitarist David Miklos said. With lyrics such as “In every heart / There plays a beat / That plays inside of all of us,” the message of “Feel It” is about music, movement and the band’s connection, Pitts said. “It is sort of about the inherent feeling inside most humans,” Pitts said. “When you hear rhythm, you just want to move and it can’t be explained.” Drummer Nick Frye said seeing this inherent feeling is easy when the band plays “Feel It.” “There is a video on YouTube of us playing that song for the first time at Skully’s, and you can see the audience really well there, and sure enough, people were dancing and getting into it,” Frye said. The band opened for a Portugal. The Man concert at Newport Music Hall April 25 to a sold-out crowd. “It was a dream come true,” Pitts said. A few of the band members said 2012 has been a year of milestones. Since January, Bonneville has played with local bands such as Phantods, Ghost Shirt, The Receiver and Two Cow Garage. It has also created connections with CD101, which makes for greater opportunities to play more shows, Frye said. “I think that it is a good time for music, and I think that we are lucky to be part of a time where people can appreciate everything,” Miklos said. Miklos said the band’s live performances are intense but fun. “It’s melodic and fun, we try to write fun music,” Miklos said. “We want people to have as much fun as we do playing for them.” Inspiration comes in many forms for Bonneville, including from bands such as Wilco, Spoon and Reptar, but doesn’t play to just one kind of music.

Bonneville is scheduled to perform at 10 p.m. May 4 at Circus. “I try to write songs about life experiences obviously, or just feelings,” Pitts said. “It’s rock, it’s pop, it’s alternative,” Bonneville produced several albums before college, but it considers the 2010 album “Drawing Maps” its first. Its latest release, “Amy’s House,” was released in December and was written when Pitts was living in a girl named Amy’s basement. “‘Amy’s House’ was different for us because we actually tracked it live, and we had never done that before,” Frye said. “Come On Come On” off “Amy’s House” has been played on CD101. “It’s like a sarcastic song, like when a girl tells you something, and you are like, ‘Come on, seriously,’” Pitts said. Milkos said he thinks “Come On Come On” is becoming a “big single” for the band. “Amy’s House” was originally meant to be an EP, but the band had more than three songs it wanted to use on the album. “We just had trouble just leaving it at three songs,” Frye said. “The main thing that we added that created the style of ‘Amy’s House’ was that we included more piano in it.”

Synth player Daniel Pritchard, a 2011 OSU alumnus in photography and high school friend of the band, recently joined the group. “We all grew up in Dayton, so it is not hard to find people that we would like to play with,” Frye said. Frye and Miklos have known each other since they were in first grade, when they were arch (or art) nemeses. “We were actually rivals because he was good at art and I was pretty good at art too, so I would always see our stuff hanging up and be like, ‘That Nick Frye,’” Miklos said with a laugh. They met Pitts when they started jamming in middle school. Pitts was writing his own material and the other guys invited him to join the band. “We have been best friends ever since,” Pitts said. The band members said fans should expect to hear new songs in the coming months, and that it was going to try to make a music video. “There will be dragons in it,” Miklos said. Bonneville is scheduled to perform at 10 p.m. Friday at Circus. Tickets are $5 and the show is open to ages 18 and up.

OSU alum opens bridal boutique T.K. BRady Lantern reporter brady.1366@osu.edu For one bridal shop, dressing brides for their big day isn’t as difficult as some reality TV shows might make it seem. “We really don’t have bridezillas,” said Courtney Leister, owner of Girls in White Dresses and a 2003 graduate from OSU in textiles and clothing. Girls in White Dresses, located at 274 Marconi Blvd., is a boutique wedding dress shop that specializes in appointment-only brides and bridesmaids dress consultations. “I love working with my brides,” Leister said. “I feel like we get fun brides who refer their friends who are also fun brides. We have a great word-ofmouth.” She added Girls in White Dresses welcomes brides of all ages. “We’ve done second-time brides, first-time

[ a +e ] Local bookstore maintains lofty expectations Caitlin Essig Asst. multimedia editor essig.21@osu.edu

CAITLIN ESSIG / Asst. multimedia editor

The Book Loft, an independent bookstore celebrating its 35th anniversary, is located at 631 S. 3rd St., in German Village.

“Independent bookstores are a dying breed,” said Carl Jacobsma, co-owner of The Book Loft, an independent bookstore that has is celebrating its 35-year anniversary. Jacobsma said the 32-room bookstore, located at 631 S. 3rd St., in German Village found success despite the dominance of chains and online retailers. The store is a labyrinth of books, with corridors connecting 32 rooms in a building that spans the length of one city block. Each of the rooms feature different subject matters, including gardening books and greeting cards in Room 6, best-sellers and new releases in Room 14 and military history in Room 19. First-time visitors to the store should “expect to be surprised, because it is unlike any other bookstore,” Jacobsma said. Michael Hemery, author of “No Permanent Scars,” agreed. “I like the idea that it’s more than just a bookstore,” Hemery said. “Unlike the colder chain stores, it has an atmosphere and a vibe. The store has a real personality.” The store’s unusual layout is part of its appeal and is something that persuades customers to come back, Jacobsma said. Despite the Internet and e-books having hurt The Book Loft’s business, Jacobsma said the decline in business hasn’t been steep enough to be concerned about losing all of his business to those outlets. “The (independent bookstores) that are established, like we are, continue to survive alongside major chains,” Jacobsma said. Dan Conway, a 2011 OSU alumnus in accounting and finance, said although he has a Kindle, he still enjoys buying books in their traditional form. “I use my Kindle for some books they offer for free, like classics or books where the copyright has run out,” Conway said. “I like buying books, they’re more tangible, I can put them on my bookshelf, and I can show them off.”

Despite an e-book trend, Jacobsma said the simple fact that Book Loft customers have physical access to the books that might interest them, rather than just seeing pages on a screen, adds to the store’s appeal. “I think we have a niche that people come here for,” Jacobsma said. “They don’t want to just order something off the Internet. They want to come here and handle the book and look at it. They want to read the excerpts from it.” Hemery agreed that independent bookstores have a degree of charm, and said hearing of a local store carrying his book meant more to him than seeing his book on a shelf of a chain bookstore. “It’s the coolest thing, to hear that local stores carry books like mine,” Hemery said. “I think the audience can appreciate it more than someone shopping at a chain store could. It’s a huge honor.” Jacobsma said author interest in The Book Loft has increased since the September closing of Borders Group Inc. This as well as the store being the only fullservice independent bookstore left in Columbus has helped gained The Book Loft popularity, Jacobsma said. He said the store has regular customers who visit every year on special trips, and some stay all day. He added during summers, the store services hundreds of customers per day. One of those customers is Matt Reed, a secondyear in electrical and computer engineering. He said he would recommend The Book Loft to anyone who has never been there. “Open up an hour of your time and go in every room and see what (it has) to offer, because you never know what you might find,” Reed said. Conway said he also likes the atmosphere of the Book Loft. “It’s like a library at Hogwarts. And I like the close environment of the store. Barnes & Noble is nothing like that.”

Vanity Theft strives to be more than textbook Amanda Abney Lantern reporter abney.14@osu.edu When three girls from a Dayton-area high schools met, they didn’t imagine they would have come together to form Vanity Theft, an indie rock band that has produced multiple albums and toured the country several times. Vanity Theft will be playing with Bonneville and LVX at 9 p.m. Friday at Circus in the Trio Showcase. The band will also release its new EP, “The Right Amount of Distance,” at the showcase. “It’s a lot more garage and less produced than the last record,” guitarist and vocalist Brittany Hill, said of the EP. “We feel like it’s more representative of who we are as a band.” Vanity Theft’s music has heavy synthesizer lines, fast drumbeats and massive guitar riffs. “It’s like danceable indie rock,” said drummer Elyse Driskill. The band’s second album, “Get What You Came For,” was its first album released under Adamant Records. The band released its first album titled “Post Script: Pace Yourself” in 2008 before it signed with the label. Hill said, “Get What You Came For” is the band’s “best accomplishment to date.” Singer and keyboardist Alicia Grodecki said “Bit by Bit” is her favorite song to perform off the album. “‘Bit by Bit’ is kind of about becoming really infatuated with someone that you know is bad

news, and you just go diving in head first anyway,” Grodecki said. Hill and Driskill said another favorite on the album for them is “Textbook Answer.” “It’s basically about trying to take a unique approach to a really painful experience, whether it be a breakup or a friend betraying you and trying to not lose who you are,” Hill said. Vanity Theft lost its all-female band handle when it welcomed bass player Daniel Sahagun on its tour in March. Sahagun first started working with the band in 2010, helping it record “Get What You Came For” and “The Right Amount of Distance.” The band is scheduled to hit the road for its next tour with Enemies (!) Tuesday. The tour is scheduled to end June 8. Hill said Vanity Theft prides itself on having high energy in its performances, a reason why some fans favor the live shows. “Vanity Theft is an inconceivably wonderful band who put on a rock solid live set,” said Jared Lindenau, a 2010 Ohio State alumnus with a bachelor in fine arts. Driskell said, “We are so full of energy these days because we are at the point where every song we play we love.” Even though the band is still trying to break into a music scene away from home, Driskell added Vanity Theft is increasingly finding a sweet spot in Columbus. “I would say that we are a Dayton band, but Columbus is becoming our new home,” she said. Tickets for Friday’s show are $5.

Vanity Theft is scheduled to perform at 9 p.m. May 4 at Circus.

Gowns that younger brides tend to be drawn to are what Leister calls “fit and flare” styles such as trumpet and ball gowns. “What I see coming to the forefront is ball gowns,” she said. “You can definitely get younger girls into big ball gowns.” Leister said her favorite clients to dress are OSU students because they tend to be fun and young.

Kate Haverland, a fourth-year in fashion and retail studies and employee at Girls in White Dresses, said she enjoys working at the boutique. “I didn’t have football tickets, so I could work here on Saturdays,” Haverland said. “I didn’t know I’d like it as much as I do.” Andrea MarLett, a recently engaged third-year in strategic communication, said she is looking

for a white strapless ball gown to make her feel like a princess. She also said she is looking for a one-shoulder dress bridesmaids dress. “I want it to be romantic and elegant, but classy at the same time,” MarLett said. “My goal is to make my fiancé tear up or to take his breath away when he sees me in it.”

Baseball using base path to reach Big Tens Darius Thigpen Lantern reporter thigpen.9@osu.edu The Ohio State baseball team (24-20, 8-10 Big Ten) is making a run for the Big Ten tournament — literally. OSU was eighth in the Big Ten as of Wednesday and one-and-a-half games behind Nebraska, Michigan State, Penn State and Illinois, all tied for fourth place in the Big Ten. The eighth-place Buckeyes are trying to steal their way back into the race for sixth place and qualify for the Big Ten tournament. The Buckeyes have been tearing up and down the base paths so far in 2012, and were third in the Big Ten in stolen bases as of Wednesday, according to bigten.org. OSU, with 17 stolen bases, is just seven behind Big Ten leader, Illinois. The Buckeyes have blown past their base-stealing pace from last season, in which OSU tallied 35 total steals in all competitions. Players and coaches alike said stealing bases is important to a team’s offense and has multiple benefits. “Stolen bases help us out a lot as hitters,” said sophomore center fielder Tim Wetzel. “It gives us RBI chances and the whole point of the game is to score runs. And as a defense, when a team runs on you, you can’t be as loose because you have guys running around. It just helps the flow of the game and helps the offense perform.”

OSU coach Greg Beals said stolen bases can influence a game and throw off an opposing defense. “As a catcher, I have a great understanding of what (a stolen base) does to an opponent’s defense,” Beals said. “What it does to pitch calling and what it does on the field, taking away from double play opportunities. It does a lot for you offensively and affects their defense quite a bit.” Beals said he likes having the ability to steal bases, but a team needs the right personnel to do so. Of the team’s 68 overall steals, 23 have come from junior infielder Kirby Pellant, a transfer in his first year with OSU. “You have to take advantage of every little opportunity to steal a base” said Pellant, the starting shortstop. “Stolen bases are a big part of the game. If you hit a single and steal a bag, it becomes a double. When you can get one to start an inning it gets the whole team going.” Wetzel, who has 10 stolen bases in 2012, said it’s important for a team to be in sync before a steal. “We talk about it a lot if we think we have a good read on a (pitcher),” Wetzel said. “Second time through, we’ll talk it out and say, ‘First pitch I’m going,’ so we’ll just know to take and let him steal a bag.” OSU’s next game is Friday at home at 7 p.m. at Nick Swisher Field at Bill Davis Stadium against Northwestern, the first game of a three-game weekend series with the Big Ten opponent.

President Barack Obama addresses a crowd at OSU’s RPAC Center March 22.

The Ohio State athletic department was prepared to kick off its centennial celebration commemorating 100 years as a department and as a member of the Big Ten conference this week. That was until President Barack Obama announced his plans to visit the OSU campus on Saturday. The athletic department’s yearlong celebration was slated to begin at the Buckeye baseball and softball home games. Fan festivities were planned, with several baseball and softball alumni scheduled to attend. In an email to The Lantern, OSU athletic director Gene Smith said he and several members of the committee involved in the celebration planning decided that it was best to postpone the events to minimize traffic concerns in the area around the Schottenstein Center. “The presidential visit is complex with security,” Smith said. “Our priority is to ensure the games themselves go smoothly, softball and baseball, and make it as easy as possible for the fans to enjoy the contests our student-athletes compete in.” Janine Oman, assistant athletic director for sport performance and head of the committee overseeing the centennial celebration, said everything was set to begin this week, but the unexpected

circumstances forced a change in the schedule of events. “We were originally planning on doing kickoff games this weekend,” Oman said. “However, the president is coming right at the same time.” While the games will still take place Saturday, the fan activities will be rescheduled due to the arrival of the president and his subsequent speech Saturday morning at the Schottenstein Center. Oman said the first kickoff games will take place Sept. 21 at the field hockey and women’s volleyball games. Austin Stewart, a first-year in international studies, said he was unaware the athletic department was planning a celebration set to begin this week. With the president coming though, he said it’s probably a good idea that it has been moved back. “The president is gonna take a lot of attention away … that would be with the 100-year celebration,” Stewart said. While he admitted he is not really a fan of the president, Stewart said he would rather go see him speak Saturday than attend the anniversary festivities because of the rare experience it presents. “It’s the president of the United States coming to campus. That doesn’t really happen all that often,” Stewart said. “I would probably rather go see him just because that’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” Visit thelantern.com to read the rest of this story.

Former Buckeye Will Smith punished for role in bounty program Michael Periatt Asst. sports editor periatt.1@osu.edu Former Ohio State defensive end Will Smith was one of four NFL players suspended Wednesday for their roles participating in a cash-forhits bounty system while playing for the New Orleans Saints. Smith will have to sit out the NFL season’s first four games, but his punishments paled in comparison to some of his former teammates. Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma was suspended without pay for the entire 2012 season for his role in the system and Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove was suspended for eight games. Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita will have to sit out three games. Saints coach Sean Payton was suspended for the entire 2012-13 season in March. The bounty system allegedly targeted opposing players and rewarded athletes who injured or delivered big hits to the targets. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell addressed the decision in a statement. “In assessing player discipline, I focused on players who were in leadership positions at the Saints; contributed a particularly large sum of money toward the program; specifically contributed to a bounty on an opposing player; demonstrated a clear intent to participate in a program

The Saints won, 45-17. that potentially injured opposing players; sought rewards for doing so; and/or obstructed the 2010 investigation,” Goodell said in the statement. DeMaurice Smith, the head of the NFL Players Association, said the association plans on fighting the penalties. Will Smith released a statement proclaiming his innocence. “I am disappointed the NFL has punished me with a four-game suspension. I have never in my career, nor as a captain, asked others to intentionally target and hurt specific

opposing players … The accusations made against me are completely and 100 percent false, and I plan to appeal the decision along with the help of the NFL Players Association. Through this entire process, the NFL never notified me of what I was being accused of, nor presented me with any evidence or reasoning for this decision. I am interested in discovering who is making these specific and false accusations, and as well as why a decision was made without speaking with me and giving me the opportunity to review the facts. I am going to

work with my union to clear my name and returning to the game I love and respect. Thank you to our fans for the continued support.” Smith played for the Buckeyes from 2000-2003 and was part of the 2002 team that won the national championship. During his career at OSU he recorded 23 sacks and 46.5 tackles for loss. He was selected with the 18th pick in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft, and was part of the Saints team that won the 2009 Super Bowl.

sports Bounty programs only increase risk NFL players face SPORTS Columnist

DAN HOPE hope.46@osu.edu

The NFL made big news Wednesday when it levied suspensions against four players who were involved in the New Orleans Saints’ bounty program which rewarded players for big hits that injured opponents. As big as that news was, no one could have been prepared for the even bigger NFL news that came hours later, when former NFL linebacker Junior Seau, 43, was found dead from a gunshot wound to the chest at his home. Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma was suspended for the entire 2012 NFL season. Green Bay Packers defensive end Anthony Hargrove, who played for the Saints in 2009 and 2010, was suspended eight games. Saints defensive end Will Smith, an OSU alumnus who played for the Buckeyes from 2000-2003, was suspended four games. Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita, who played for the Saints from 2006-2009, received a three-game suspension. Many current and former players, along with NFL fans, have been outspoken against the severity of the suspensions. Football is a game known for its hard hits, and some feel that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is making the game “soft” in his attempts to reduce hits with violent nature. I disagree with these complaints. While the penalties are harsh, Goodell is right in taking strong action against players who hit other players illegally on the field, and especially in taking action against those involved in setting up reward systems for players who are doing so in an effort to injure opposing players. The short-term effects of these actions are that the game might lose an aspect of its excitement for those who love to see bone-crushing hits. The long-term effects of the game’s violent tackling, however, are what should be the primary concern. Seau’s death might very well turn out to be another representation of how severe these effects can be. Seau’s death is being investigated as an

apparent suicide, according to multiple reports. In numerous recent cases of former NFL players committing suicide, they have been found to have a degenerative brain condition known as Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), which can cause players to suffer severe effects including memory loss, impaired judgment, depression and aggression. This was not the first instance of bizarre behavior from Seau. In October 2010, Seau drove his car off of a 100-foot cliff in what might have been a suicide attempt, hours after an arrest for domestic violence. While there is no evidence yet of Seau having any brain condition, this bizarre series of events certainly lends itself to the pattern of potentially having another player inflicted with CTE. Seau’s death bears some similarities to other cases of former NFL player suicides, including that of former Chicago Bears football player Dave Duerson who shot himself in the chest in February 2011. Duerson left a request for relatives that he wanted his brain donated to the NFL brain bank for research where it was later discovered that Duerson suffered from CTE. Seau was known as an excellent player on the field, and an equally excellent person off the field. He played for at least part of 20 NFL seasons, and was a 12-time Pro Bowler and six-time All-Pro as one of the best linebackers in the NFL. Off the field, Seau was a well-known philanthropist who founded the Junior Seau Foundation. It is truly a tragedy that Seau decided to end his life at the young age of 43 years, without any rational explanation as to what might have driven him to take his own life. This should, however, be yet another wake-up call to not only the NFL, but its players and fans who denounce the league to taking a hard stance against violent hits. NFL players and fans need to be able to understand the long-term effects of the game that is being played, rather than crying out about players being fined and suspended for hits that could ruin another player’s career and life.

Former OSU men’s volleyball senior Shawn Sangrey goes up for a hit against Penn State, Jan. 14. The Buckeyes lost to the Nittany Lions, 3-0.

Volleyball recruit Judkins chooses Buckeyes Justine Boggs Lantern reporter boggs.1047@osu.edu The Ohio State men’s volleyball team finished the 2012 season with a 21-9 record and a third-straight 20-win season, but the work for next season has already begun. OSU coach Pete Hanson welcomed Kaukauna, Wis., native Alex Judkins to the 2013 roster Wednesday. Judkins, a 6-foot-6-inch outside hitter, led Kaukauna High School to the state championship in November. After losing the two-time All-American opposite, Shawn Sangrey, Hanson knew he needed to add to the Buckeyes’ roster to fill the void.

“He will immediately add depth and size to our group of outside hitters,” Hanson said according to a press release. He is a two-time First-Team All-State and All-Conference honoree and was named the Post-Crescent Player of the Year for two consecutive seasons. “We are very glad that Alex has chosen to join our program,” Hanson said in the release. “Based on his athletic ability and skill set, we believe he will have a very successful career here at Ohio State.” Judkins finished his high school career with 969 kills, 412 of which were from his senior year. “Alex will have the opportunity to compete for a spot right away,” Hanson said.

Columbus is no stranger to the sport of lacrosse, but the two are about to get a little closer as the Ohio Machine, one of two new franchises in Major League Lacrosse, prepares for their first home game. In 2010, in a move to expand the league to 20 teams by 2020, MLL officials announced two new teams would be added in 2012. The Ohio Machine and the Charlotte Hounds are those franchises. “We’re in a really exciting position,” said John Algie, president and general manager for the Machine. “The approach is a reasonable one, in the sense that we’ve had over a year of time to get our operations up to speed. I think seeing how that groundwork should be laid over that period of time has been very beneficial.” The addition of the Machine won’t be the MLL’s first experience with Columbus. In 2000, Crew Stadium was a stop for the Major League Lacrosse Summer Showcase. The tour’s goal was to raise awareness about the MLL’s inaugural season in 2001. The following year, the MLL championships were also held in the state’s capital. Algie said the lacrosse market in central Ohio was booming after the trial runs, but the league determined it wasn’t quite ready to support a team. The rest of the state hadn’t caught up. “Fast forward to 2010 and the league did another test market game. The results were fantastic,” Algie said. “The league really had the results they were looking for. At that point, the decision was made to bring an expansion team to central Ohio, and here we are.” Algie previously spent three years in Boston as the MLL’s director of operations where he dealt with player contracts, media officiating and oversaw the league rule book. The league lost four teams in 2008 due to financial troubles that forced the league to form one conference. “I think the league has done a fantastic

job of weathering what was really one of the worst economic times in American history,” Algie said. “Our attendance was up to 21 percent last year as a whole.” The league lengthened the season to 14 games rather than 12 played last season. Though there have been some growing pains, the attendance mark is the league’s best since the inaugural season in 2001. Ohio State men’s lacrosse coach Nick Myers said he was happy to see the league bring a professional team to the state. “The game is exploding in Ohio and across the Midwest, It’s great for our fans,” Myers said. “In the summer months when it’s not Buckeye basketball or football, it’s an opportunity to go out and see a really high level of lacrosse. I think people are going to find it’s a nice opportunity.” The league hasn’t announced where more expansion teams could end up, but previous comments from MLL commissioner David Gross hinted that it is very interested in the West Coast, but there would have to be a plan set in place to add four teams all at once in that region, Algie said. The league held its annual draft in January, and through the past couple months, the Ohio Machine has made some off-season acquisitions as its final touch to the spring roster. The team added former Buckeyes men’s lacrosse teammates Greg Bice, Anthony Kelly and Stefan Schroder. The three players offer more than 15 seasons of MLL experience, which could benefit the Machine. “I’m fired up, I’m pumped,” Bice said. “It’s just an exciting time for the lacrosse community and being a part of that and seeing how much it’s grown.” Bice and Kelly operate a training academy known as Resolute Lacrosse in their spare time. Bice said it was nice to have past experience with players because it makes the team chemistry come together so much quicker.
