Ohio State finds itself a sideshow to an alleged rape that has forever changed an Ohio River-town and garnered national attention in recent weeks. Steubenville, Ohio, which is about 150 miles east of Columbus, is in the spotlight after two 16-yearold Steubenville High School football players, Ma’lik Richmond and Trent Mays, were charged with raping a 16-year-old girl at a party last August. While neither Richmond nor Mays attend the university, OSU has been pulled into the case in light of a video taken from the night of those parties, which features former OSU student and Steubenville High School graduate Michael Nodianos, talking and laughing about the alleged rape for more than 12 minutes. The video, which can be found on YouTube under the title “Michael Nodianos confession #oprollredroll #occupysteubenville Steubenville rape case,” shows Nodianos wearing an OSU T-shirt making analogies that the alleged victim was “deader than” or was “raped harder than.” After the video gained more than 270,000 views and a Facebook group titled “OSU expel Michael Nodianos ‘Rape Crew’ member” garnered more

Nothing in Ohio’s criminal statutes makes it a crime for someone to ridicule a rape victim on a video or otherwise say horrible things about another person. a website set up in an attempt to separate fact from fiction regarding the sexual assault case than 2,600 “likes,” OSU issued a statement Friday addressing the situation in Steubenville and the university’s connection to it. While the university would not comment on the case because of Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulations, the school confirmed through its statement that “the student in question” was in attendance at the university “only through Dec. 12,” the last day of OSU’s Fall Semester final examinations. OSU spokeswoman Gayle Saunders would not confirm whether Nodianos is enrolled for Spring Semester or if he left the university. The school is not the only public entity to respond to the flood of information surrounding the still-unraveling case.

A website titled “Steubenville Facts,” which is sponsored by the City of Steubenville and Steubenville Police Department, was created Saturday in an attempt to separate fact from fiction regarding the case. While the site does not address Nodianos by name, it does touch on the viral video in which he plays a part in a post headlined as “Governance, Jurisdiction and Ohio Law.” Though Nodianos does not face criminal charges for his 12-minute commentary, some have argued that he should answer to some semblance of disciplinary measures. The website, however, attempts to dismiss that notion. “Nothing in Ohio’s criminal statutes makes it a crime for someone to ridicule a rape victim on a video or otherwise say horrible things about another person,” the post reads. “Steubenville Police investigators are caring humans who recoil and are repulsed by many of the things they observe during an investigation … they are often frustrated when they emotionally want to hold people accountable for certain detestable behavior but realize that there is no statute that allows a criminal charge to be made.”

Scarlet and Gray has gone Pink. The recent release of a Victoria’s Secret Pink Ohio State collection has raised questions of how the new Buckeye line fits in with OSU’s exclusive apparel licensing contract. On Nov. 15, OSU announced a 10-year, $97 million deal with apparel companies Fanatics Inc., based in Jacksonville, Fla., and J. America Sportswear, based in Webberville, Mich., giving these companies the exclusive rights to design, marketing, production, retail and distribution of all apparel, according to a university press release. OSU has not released further details surrounding the apparel deal because it is not yet finalized, said Gayle Saunders, university spokeswoman. Saunders said the deal should be finalized in spring. Pink, not affiliated with Fanatics Inc. or J. America Sportswear, began selling OSU-branded merchandise on Dec. 11. The exclusive rights deal was made with some exceptions in mind, said Rick Van Brimmer, director of Trademark and Licensing Services at OSU. There are about six brands that are exempt to the exclusive apparel licenses with Fanatics and J. America, including Nike, Disney, Hello Kitty, Snoopy and Marvel, Van Brimmer said. “(The Pink OSU collection) was in the works before (the exclusive licensing) deal was signed,” Van Brimmer said. Pink representatives contacted OSU in about May or June, Van Brimmer said. “We’ve had conversations with them before but … Les Wexner (was) on the Board (OSU’s Board of Trustees), and that created a situation … There were some issues on their side,” Van Brimmer said.

Ohio State Police concluded that no criminal charges will be filed in a four-monthlong investigation surrounding a dump truck accident that cost one student his right leg. The Sept. 5 accident took place when first-year student from South Point, Ohio, James Daniel Hughes was riding his bike to class at about 2:45 p.m. near Woodruff Avenue, close to where a dump truck was operating near the entrance of a construction site. According to several witness reports, Hughes was riding his bike quickly by the site when he was hit by a dump truck attempting to reverse out of the area. Several witness statements described a loud popping noise that drew their attention to the truck, and then to a crumpled bicycle beneath it. It appeared that the driver hadn’t realized what happened and began moving again. Several people reported that they yelled “Stop!” to get the driver’s attention. Multiple onlookers reported the incident to emergency services. An officer dispatched to the scene at

about 2:47 p.m. wrote in his narrative that as he approached the truck he “looked under and could see a male body laying on the ground. His torso was exposed and there was a very large wound in his hip region. His body was laying in a contorted position.” According to the report Hughes was immediately transported to the Wexner Medical Center for care, and since his accident, his lawyer Steve Crandall said he has lost roughly one-third of his body, including his right leg and hip. He has also dealt with a bone infection. The investigation revealed that University Police has not charged anyone involved in the incident, and the investigation is completed. The report, hundreds of pages long, was released almost four months after the incident and includes witness testimonies, officer narratives, information on the vehicles involved and emails from university officials on the incident. University Police collected statements from at least 14 witnesses and more than 10 officers who played a role in the investigation. University Police had requested a copy of Hughes’ AT&T cell phone record, which

An alley near northwood Avenue and Williams Street is slick with snow and ice on Sunday, Jan. 7 at about 3 p.m. Many students have complained about snow and ice in the streets of the university district.

Icy off-campus roads hinder students MARgAReT MeCKlenBoRg Lantern reporter Ohio State student Natalie Van Atta noticed the icy off-campus streets when she came back to Columbus on New Year’s Eve. “We were on Norwich (Avenue), a one-way (street), with cars (parked) on both sides of the street, and the cars were on top of mounds of snow,� said Van Atta, a third-year in nursing who lives on Woodruff Avenue. “I remember us commenting about how the area didn’t look cleared at all and how ridiculous and dangerous it was to drive in an already narrow space with ice everywhere.� Ron Sidwell, a fourth-year in international studies and German, said Saturday that the

off-campus streets posed a problem for him as well. “I live on Norwich Avenue, and where you parallel park wasn’t cleared off at all,� Sidwell said. “I was already parked there so it was just really hard to get out of the spot.� The street had not been salted, Sidwell said. “I kept spinning out because of the ice,� he said. “I eventually shoveled myself out. It took about 40 minutes.� The Columbus Department of Public Service focuses its attention on portions of state routes 315 and 104 and U.S. 33, then arterial streets, which are high capacity urban roads such as High Street and Broad Street. After Public Service clears the high-traffic areas, its workers plow the lower capacity streets that connect the residential streets to the arterial streets. The residential streets

are plowed only after four inches of snow are on the ground, said Rick Tilton, the assistant director of the Department of Public Service. Tilton said roads are treated differently based on what they are used for. “One of the things you have to keep in mind when we go into residential is that we do not plow down to bare pavement,� Tilton said. Bare pavement is only seen on the arterial and collector streets because they are hightraffic areas that work the chemicals into the pavement, and the heat of cars contribute to melting the snow and ice, Tilton said. “You don’t see that kind of traffic on residential streets,� he said. “Putting salt down on residential streets is counterproductive because you need the high volume of traffic for it to really work.�

A total of 39 instances of theft were reported on campus while Ohio State students were on winter break from Dec. 13 to Jan. 5. Of these, one occurrence was a theft of a bicycle. Three instances were theft from auto. In one case a female non-affiliate reported her 2002 Mercedes SAS stolen from the Schottenstein Center on Jan. 2. A 56-year-old male not affiliated with the university was arrested for robbery and assault at Walgreens in the Wexner Medical Center on Dec. 20. He was also charged with resisting arrest and failure to disclose personal information. The same day a 46-year-old male not affiliated with the university was suspected to be under the influence of alcohol when he was arrested for assault on a police officer at the William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library. Three instances of breaking and entering were reported on campus over break, and there were four instances of criminal trespassing. Five instances of individuals operating a vehicle while impaired were reported between Dec. 20 and Dec. 26.

Steubenville from 1A Dan Tierney, a spokesman for Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, whose office is prosecuting the case, told The Lantern that the investigation of the matter is ongoing. “We cannot comment whether any additional charges are being considered, or if additional charges have been ruled out,” Tierney said in an email. DeWine, who told 10TV he watched the video in its entirety, called it “disgusting” Friday. “We will prosecute anyone who we believe is guilty of a crime. That’s all I can say at this point,” DeWine told 10TV. Like DeWine, Adam Martello, a Steubenville native and third-year OSU student in economics, found the video jarring. “It’s disgusting,” said Martello, a graduate of

Steubenville Catholic Central High School. “The longer you watch it, the angrier you get. It’s vile.” Martello, though, wasn’t sure that Nodianos deserves to face criminal charges. “I’m a firm believer in the justice system we have and I don’t think that people should be charged just because people want them to be charged with something,” he said. “If he committed a crime, then he should be charged.” While Nodianos did not respond to The Lantern’s request for comment, “Find People,” the school’s faculty, staff and student directory, showed on Thursday that Nodianos was a student in electrical and computer engineering. His information in “Find People,” however, has been rendered inaccessible since Friday as his name no longer yields results. According to The New York Times, Richmond and Mays are under house arrest and awaiting a trial that has been set for Feb. 13.

Pink from 1A The Limited Brands CEO stepped down from his position as OSU’s Board of Trustee’s chairman in June, eight years before his contract was set to expire, without providing a reason. Since his resignation Wexner has canceled a scheduled interview with The Lantern. Other OSU employees suggested any concerns about conflicts of interest due to Wexner’s Board position were on Pink’s side. “I don’t want to speculate (on the role Wexner’s resignation played in the apparel deal) because we’re not directly involved,” said Xen Riggs, associate vice president for Student Life, referring The Lantern to Pink for comment. Neither Limited Brands nor Victoria’s Secret provided comment on how Wexner’s resignation from the Board in June might have affected the Pink apparel deal. OSU has a contract with apparel companies New Era Cap, based in Buffalo, N.Y., and its subsidiary 5th and Ocean Clothing, based in Hialeah, Fla. The contract with Pink was made through 5th and Ocean Clothing, Van Brimmer said. According to Pink’s website, there are 17 items in the collection, which, according to the Limited Brands, is being sold at 20 Victoria’s Secret locations

It’s scholarships, it’s support of student programming, it’s student life, it helps support the libraries, it helps support athletic scholarships, so it goes to a variety of different places. Rick Van Brimmer Director of Trademark and Licensing Services at OSU across Ohio. The prices for the collection’s items range from $29.50 to $108, according to Pink’s website. OSU will make 12 percent of the wholesale price of each item sold, Van Brimmer said. “Basically all of our apparel contracts are 12 percent of the wholesale price,” Van Brimmer added. The royalties will then be distributed according to a formula that the Board has determined, spreading money out across the university to “benefit the student experience on a daily basis,” Van Brimmer said. “It’s scholarships, it’s support of student programming, it’s student life, it helps support the libraries, it helps support athletic scholarships, so it goes to a variety of different places,” he said.

People await midnight during New Year’s festivities in Times Square in New York City on Dec. 31, 2007. Some OSU students made New Year’s resolutions to kick off 2013.

Students resolve to get fit, improve grades in new year Sally xia Lantern reporter Every year as the ball drops, millions across the country promise themselves that their weight will drop too, resolving that with the new year will come a renewed and fitter self. Ohio State students are no different. “I go on this crazy diet every year,” said Robert Baccus, a fourth-year in strategic communication. “Last year, it was three months. This year, it’ll probably be longer.” Other students are planning to take advantage of the university’s gyms to help them keep fit. Cheng Feng, a second-year graduate student in material science and engineering, said he will keep going to the Adventure Recreation Center (ARC) on West Campus at least twice a week and will have to “get up on time and go to bed on time,” to accomplish his goal. However, between school, homework and other obligations, it can be hard for some people to stick to their promises. Time Magazine published a list of the most commonly broken New Year’s resolutions, which included losing

weight and getting fit, quitting smoking, drinking less, saving money and traveling to new places. Besides being fit, many OSU students are also wishing for a clearer future and better grades in the new year. Cameron Clark, a second-year in international studies and Japanese, said his New Year’s resolution is to have a more positive attitude and figure out his future. “I wanna get close to figuring out what I wanna do for a career,” Clark said. For some, the year’s goals of self improvement begin with hard work at the William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library, however it didn’t appear many people tried to get a head start for the coming semester. “In the evening I have anywhere around six people at a time,” said Jennifer Eyer, a library associate, over break. However, she said she expects that number to change once the semester is underway. Yiwei Liu, a fourth-year in operations management, has been coming to the library since Christmas, because she is working on applying for graduate school. “I am just going to try my best.” Liu said. “Everybody has (a) different path, but at least I want to try to work hard and see what can come out.”

revealed that he had not been using his phone when the accident occurred. Crandall, who has been fielding media inquiries for the family, had previously expressed frustration with what he considered a delay in the report’s release. However, University Police Chief Paul Denton said the length of time was typical for this kind of investigation. “There was no delay … this is a comprehensive approach to gathering details and facts, and it does take time. You want to make sure all witnesses are interviewed and all relevant facts and evidence are gathered,” Denton said. He said it’s crucial to give witnesses time to come forward. “You don’t want to make a premature conclusion without ensuring that you have all the facts and evidence,” Denton said. According to a written officer narrative, Crandall said on Oct. 2 that he had talked to Hughes, and stated that he “was not riding his bicycle on the sidewalk but was pushing it because there was so much pedestrian traffic.” Crandall did not return The Lantern’s requests for comment over the weekend. In a previous interview with The Lantern, Crandall said he was willing to take action against the university for not making information about the investigation available earlier.

Icy from 2A Besides residential streets, several students complained about the sidewalks off campus being hazardous to walk on over the weekend, even though it hasn’t snowed in Columbus since Jan. 1. “The ice on the sidewalks, especially on Chittenden (Avenue) is always really bad,” said Maria Reckziegel, a third-year in food science and technology, who lives on Woodruff Avenue Friday. “I fell a couple times.” Although sidewalks are used by the public, it is property owners’ responsibility to repair and maintain the sidewalk outside of their property. This includes ice and snow removal, Tilton said. “I assumed that the city was supposed to clean and ice the sidewalks,” Reckziegel said. Third-year in electrical engineering and Frambes Avenue resident, Ed Wells said that his landlord made it clear to him and

One officer wrote in his narrative that “David Hughes (James Daniel Hughes’ father) brought up concerns about the lack of safety measures in place at the entrance to the construction site. Kelley Hughes (James Daniel Hughes’ mother) stated she was very concerned about the lack of education to incoming students concerning bicycle and pedestrian laws and safety awareness.” The Sept. 5 accident was preceded by a Aug. 20 incident where first-year student Rachel Stump was hit by a drunk driver, which left her in a coma for several days. The day after James Daniel Hughes’ accident, OSU student Yifan Gu was struck by a bicyclist near Chumley’s on High Street and was transported to the Medical Center with injuries. As a result of a string of pedestrian and bicycle accidents involving injuries OSU President E. Gordon Gee formed a safety task force to come up with ways to make campus safer, including adding signs to crosswalks and banning the use of bicycles on the Oval. With the investigation concluded, Denton said his thoughts are with the Hughes’ family. “They are what’s most important to me at this point, and to our university and our agency,” he said. Lindsey Barrett contributed to this article.

his roommates that it was the renters’ responsibility to take care of the sidewalks. “I shoveled the sidewalk as much as I could over break,” he said. “I plan on taking care of it as much as I can.” The Ohio State Off-Campus and Commuter Student Engagement, Community Ambassadors and the Undergraduate Student Government have been helping students clear the ice off campus by giving away free buckets of salt at the Ohio Union over break. In addition, there will be Community Ambassadors and Undergraduate Student Government volunteers delivering salt to off-campus residences on Jan. 19, according to the Office of Student Life website. However, for some students walking east of High Street, the help isn’t coming soon enough. “Once I get to High Street I’m fine, but getting there is like skating on an ice rink,” Sidwell said. “I think any of the side streets really need a little more attention.”

Visitors pay tribute to a memorial near Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., less than 2 weeks after Adam Lanza opened fire there. He killed 26 people and himself on Dec. 14, 2012.

Showing love and kindness could help bring awareness OLLER Reporter

Just 11 days before Christmas, on Dec. 14, Adam Lanza forced his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Twenty-year-old Lanza opened fire in the school killing 20 children, EMILY TARA six adults and then himself. The massacre that occurred at Sandy Hook is a tragedy. It has also been the catalyst that has driven many acts of kindness, encouraging words and heated debates within government about gun control and violence. I am not saying that I stand on one side of the gun control debate or the other. Instead, I am going to say that I do not think that is the adequate question to be asking. The way I see it, whether correct or not, is that no matter how strict gun regulation laws become, people will still find a way to obtain and abuse them. Look at it this way: marijuana and other drugs have been illegal in the United States, but drugs are still grown, smuggled and sold on a daily basis in our country and in our community. It is illegal for individuals under the age of 21 to buy or consume alcohol, and yet with the help of older friends and fake IDs, alcohol is often sold and consumed by minors.

Essentially, laws can help with the ramifications of those who are caught doing wrong, but people will always find a way around those laws. I am not a cynic. I believe that there are good people with great intentions. But for so many, a life of violence is one that they are introduced to at a very early age. Guns do not, by themselves, kill people. People kill people using guns. Instead of questioning the intentions of the National Rifle Association we need to educate our youth so that they grow to be upstanding individuals, we need to make counselors ready and available in schools and work places so people feel they have a safe place to discuss problems, but perhaps most importantly we need to keep our eyes open. Turning a blind eye to those that need help the most will not solve our problems. As a country, as a community, we can help each other. We were intended to be “One nation, under God,” not a divided country of Democrats and Republicans or blacks, whites and Hispanics. We are Americans. I am not saying that banding together would have changed Lanza’s mind. I am not saying that he would have thought better than to steal his mother’s gun and shoot her, 26 innocent children and adults, and then himself. I am, however, saying that if we start now, maybe other people who may have similar thoughts might choose to talk to someone first. As a journalist, I see the facts of this shooting, but as a person I see the emotion and I pray for those victims and their families. Arguing over the NRA will not solve our nation’s problems. It will not cure the mental

And I believe that perhaps that is where to start. Help your neighbor and treat others the way that you wish to be treated. Maybe if we begin instilling this into the minds of our youth now, our country might look different in 20 years. Of course, I cannot say that for sure, and those innocent children are not going to come back because of it, but just maybe we can bring awareness so that more don’t have to suffer in the same way.

Student Poetry: Not for College Days Alone By James L. Hibbard

French and Italian graduate student Doug Roberts (left) and first-year graduate student Emma Bartlett (right) pose with President E. Gordon Gee while on a French and Italian Graduate Student Association scavenger hunt.

Scavenger hunt helps re-introduce Columbus native to city DOUG ROBERTS For The Lantern In the Department of French and Italian, the graduate students make up an organization called the French and Italian Graduate Student Association, or “FIGSA” for short. In an effort to help the incoming graduate students in the department get to know each other, FIGSA assigned each new student or mentee with an older student in the program, or the mentor. They also put together a semester-long bucket list of activities, similar to a scavenger hunt, that the students could do together. For each activity, the student or team of students got a certain number of points, and if they did the activity with their assigned mentor, they got extra points. At the end of the semester, FIGSA totaled the votes and declared which student teams won. Ultimately the goal was to build community among your colleagues by sharing and doing activities that were mutually enjoyed.

Monday January 7, 2013

FIGSA assigned Emma Bartlett, one of our talented first-year graduate students, to be my mentee. I have lived in Columbus all of my life, and I know a lot about this town. Well, Emma put me to the test and gave me the FIGSA list of bucket items, including activities such as going to COSI, visiting the Columbus Museum of Art, riding the bike trail, watching a film at the Wexner Center, eating at La Chatelaine, walking the Short North (doing the Gallery Hop activities), going to an academic lecture together and so on. She essentially tossed the gauntlet down and said (as only a person in her 20s can say), “Let’s go!” And over a period of time, we did just that. We were not able to check everything off the list, of course, but we did more than we could possibly imagine. It turned into quite the adventure, really. Suffice it to say that I am much older than the average OSU graduate student, and I found it particularly fun to re-experience OSU (and Columbus) through the eyes of someone seeing everything for the first time — something like a parent

re-experiencing the wonder of Christmas through the eyes of his or her young children. One the bucket list items was to have your picture taken with President E. Gordon Gee. I am not sure that I would have had the gumption to call Gee and ask him about this, but Emma did not even blink an eye. He was particularly gracious in making time for us, even though he had an incredibly busy holiday calendar. I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun this all turned out to be. Emma and I found it a wonderful way to get to know each other as well as the OSU and Columbus community. FIGSA engaged in this whole effort and took some proactive steps to help the incoming students become a part of our OSU community, both within and outside of the departments. The problem with the academic life is that unless one is very careful, it can be terribly isolating. When people are in community, they do much better. We had a great time doing this. I think FIGSA had a great idea, and other departments might benefit from doing this as well.

The seasons change so subtly, As leaves subside to winter’s grief. The rebirth of life in spring’s embrace, Invigorates this hallowed space. Books weigh down our changing steps, We move beyond the college depth. These years will not be spent alone, We walk with friends on youthful stones. As we grow with what we’ve learned, The words from past and present burn A message that the heart has heard. From snow to stone, our dearest friends, Tis’ not for college days alone. 5A

Bradley Roby is coming back. The Ohio State redshirt sophomore cornerback is returning to Columbus for his junior season after flirting with the possibility of declaring for the 2013 NFL Draft, according to multiple reports. Roby, who was named an Associated Press second-team All-American and consensus All-Big Ten selection, played a considerable role on the defensive side of the ball during the Buckeyes’ undefeated 2012 season. Under the director of coach Urban Meyer, OSU finished the year 12-0 and is currently ranked No. 3 in the AP’s top-25 poll. Roby, who secured 63 tackles in addition to 17 pass breakups and two interceptions, will return to a defense that loses its starting defensive line, two of its starting linebackers, and fellow cornerback Travis Howard. Roby’s teammate, junior defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, opted to forgo his senior year and enter the draft instead. While Roby arguably played as consistently as any Buckeye throughout the season, perhaps his most notable game was against Nebraska on Oct. 6 when he recorded two interceptions, one of which he returned for a first-quarter touchdown to open the scoring. OSU went on to win, 63-38. At practice the next week, OSU cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs told reporters that Roby would be a “first-round pick down the road.” “A kid like Bradley, whose film study is extraordinary, hours and hours of film study, he’ll know his opponent. He understands the route that’s coming, he’s prepared for the ball when it comes and then you go to finish those plays,” Coombs said Oct. 8. “He’s the guy that wants to make plays, that needs to make plays for our team to be successful.” Roby’s decision will likely help solidify Meyer’s Buckeyes as one of the early favorites for the 2014 BCS National Championship.

Roby’s return means more great quotes PaTRiCK MaKS Asst. sports editor Perhaps in addition to his play on the field, Bradley Roby might have also become renowned for his colorful language following Ohio State’s wins during the 2012 season. Here’s a look at what may have been Roby’s most interesting quotes over the course of this past season:

“You just go into someone else’s home, in front of their fans, their moms, their girlfriends, sisters, and we just wanna dominate them. I mean, what’s better than that? Going into someone’s house and taking everything they own and they can’t do nothin’ about it.” — Roby, following OSU’s 21-14 overtime win at Wisconsin’s Camp Randall Stadium on Nov. 17.

I was telling everybody, this is my game, I’ma get a pick-six … My dad texted me this morning and was like, ‘I had a dream you had a pick-six today.

Thad Matta not panicking after Illinois, Kansas losses PaTRiCK MaKS Asst. photo editor After what was likely the most demoralizing loss for the Ohio State men’s basketball team this season, Thad Matta maintains he’s not entirely unnerved following a 74-55 loss to Illinois Saturday. “I’m not like panicked, like `Oh my God!”’ the OSU coach said at a postgame press conference in Champaign, Ill. “This team has shown it can play some pretty good basketball.” In some regards, Matta’s assertion seems appropriate. After all, OSU has rolled to victory in most of its 11 wins on the season — including its Big Ten-opener against Nebraska Wednesday, a 70-44 win. But it also might only tell half of the narrative that’s becoming the Buckeyes’ (11-3, 1-1) campaign, and its dismantling at the hands of the Fighting Illini might be a harbinger for OSU. In OSU’s three biggest contests of the year against now-No. 1-ranked Duke, No. 6 Kansas and No. 11 Illinois, the Buckeyes are winless and look like a team without an identity at about the halfway point in the season. A second-half collapse hindered them against the Blue Devils on Nov. 28, and exceptionally poor shooting doomed them against the Jayhawks on Dec. 22 in Columbus. A combination of those faults, plus what appeared as dispassion on the court, Matta’s crew was handled by his former assistant and current Fighting Illini coach John Groce. The numbers speak for themselves. In addition to 16 turnovers, OSU shot just 33 percent from the floor and 21 percent from behind the arc. They were also out-rebounded, 40-30, against an Illinois squad coming off an upset loss to unranked Purdue just three days prior. Matta said the Illini’s defense gave OSU fits and had his team playing catch-up. “We could never get that one bucket to kind of free us up a little bit, free our minds a little bit,” Matta said. It might not just be a lack of execution on the court, though. Perhaps OSU’s issues are ones that can’t be remedied by strategy, or taking shooting more seriously in practice, as some players admitted after their win against Chicago State a week earlier. “They gave us opportunities, and we couldn’t convert,” Matta said. For OSU, it could be a trend — at least one that seems to have manifested itself against opponents of equal aptitude. Matta, reluctantly, admitted the loss — perhaps particularly because of its fashion — is still cause for concern. “It was one of those games where we weren’t thinking the way we needed to think,” he said. “We tried everything.” And with a game against Purdue Tuesday at 9 p.m. in West Lafayette, Ind., OSU will have little time to gather themselves after, statistically, their worst loss of the season. “There’s certain games where you got to kind of push it to the side and you’re on to the next one,” Matta said. “But I think these guys want to learn, they want to get better but by the same token, you’re going from one game to the next and you got two days to get ready for it.”

In Case You Missed It — Results from the university’s winter break Ohio State vs. UNC Asheville Result: OSU won, 90-72 Then-No.7 OSU dismantled UNC Asheville, 90-72, in a game that saw sophomore forward Sam Thompson notch a career-high 18 points on Dec. 15. En-route to OSU’s 59 percent shooting outing, junior forward Deshaun Thomas also scored 17 points, and junior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. had 16 points. Ohio State vs. Winthrop Result: OSU won, 65-55 In its last game before Kansas, OSU struggled to put away Winthrop before Thomas’ 21 points were too much for the Eagles. Perhaps the biggest news from the game, though, had little to do with what happened on the court. In light of the Newtown, Conn., shootings that happened days before the Dec. 18 game, Winthrop coach Pat Kelsey used his postgame press conference at the Schottenstein Center as a call for change across the country. The shooting, which occurred Dec. 14, left 26 people dead before the shooter took his own life.

Ohio State vs. Kansas Result: OSU lost, 74-66 In what was billed and hyped as a rematch of last year’s Final Four, the Buckeyes failed to best No. 6 Kansas for the third time in a little more than a year. While OSU trailed just 37-35 at halftime against the Jayhawks, poor shooting and defensive miscues in the second half helped Kansas to a 74-66 win in Columbus. Ohio State vs. Chicago State Result: OSU won, 87-44 OSU, in its first time back on the hardwood since a loss to Kansas, overcame a sluggish start before routing Chicago State, 87-44 at the Schottenstein Center. It was the last nonconference game for the Buckeyes. Ohio State vs. Nebraska Result: OSU won, 70-44 Behind Thomas and Smith Jr., OSU muscled its way past Nebraska in its Big Ten opener. In fact, Thomas’ 18 first-half points outscored the Cornhuskers’ 17 points in the game’s first act.

sports NHL lockout nearing its end, no timetable for OSU alums’ return PaT BRennan Sports editor The NHL lockout appears to be winding down, and former Ohio State men’s hockey players could be returning to a professional arena near you. Exactly when that will happen is still being decided. Sunday marked the 113th day of the NHL’s lockout, and at 6 a.m., league commissioner Gary Bettman and player’s union executive director Donald Fehr emerged from a more than 16-hour-long negotiating session at Sofitel Hotel in New York City to announce that the league’s team owners and players have agreed on the basic structure for a new collective bargaining agreement. Bettman said that details for the new CBA, a league labor contract that imposes working standards for players, are not available yet. The main point of Bettman and Fehr’s joint address was to make it clear that the NHL is close to a return. “We have reached an agreement on the framework of a new collective bargaining agreement, the details of which need to be put to paper,â€? Bettman said during a press conference. “We have to dot a lot of ‘I’s,’ cross a lot of ‘T’s.’ There’s still a lot of work to be done, but the basic framework of the deal has been agreed upon ‌ We still have more work to do, but it’s good to be at this point.â€? Fehr agreed with Bettman, adding that he hopes the deal can be officially completed shortly. “Hopefully, we’re at a place where all those things will proceed fairly rapidly and with some dispatch and we’ll get back to what we used to call business as usual as fast as we can,â€? Fehr said. Information regarding the start date for the shortened 2013 season was not made available during Bettman and Fehr’s press conference. In the absence of the world’s top

professional hockey league throughout the fall and early winter days, OSU men’s hockey alumni scattered themselves throughout the minor league ranks or took on other endeavors. All of them can now set their sights on returning to NHL play, or competing for the chance to do so. Former Buckeye and current Columbus Blue Jackets left winger R.J. Umberger spent his time on the OSU bench during the current collegiate hockey season as a volunteer coach. Umberger, who has scored 143 career goals in the NHL, did not return The Lantern’s Sunday request for comment. A 20-goal or greater scorer in each of his first three seasons in Columbus, Umberger figures to feature in the Blue Jackets offense again when the team resumes play. Other former Buckeyes, such as goaltender Cal Heeter, will continue fighting for NHL ice time in minor leagues. In his first year of professional hockey, Heeter, an OSU netminder from 2008-2012, plays with the American Hockey League’s Adirondack Phantoms. There, Heeter has posted five wins, 10 losses and one shootout loss in 16 games for the Philadelphia Flyers’ minor league affiliate. During a March interview with The Lantern, Flyers director of hockey operations, Chris Pryor, said the lack of goaltending depth in the organization would allow Heeter a chance to compete for NHL playing time. “We think (Heeter’s) got a lot of potential ‌ we’re extremely high on him,â€? Pryor said. “He’s got a great opportunity in our organization. We think he’s got a bright future.â€? In an email to The Lantern, Zack Hill, the Flyers’ director of communications, said NHL rules prohibited him from coordinating “any interviews until the NHL officially (announces) that the lockout has ended.â€? Bettman said that more details of the new CBA would be available later on Sunday.

sports Commentary: OSU should be title contender with Roby SPORTS Columnist

Ohio State football coaches are currently working hard to recruit incoming freshmen to fill out the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roster for next season, but the Buckeyes got their most important commitment from a dan hope current member of the team on Saturday. OSU redshirt sophomore cornerback Bradley Roby, a second-team Associated Press All-American this season, told The Columbus Dispatch on Saturday he will return to OSU next season rather than declare for the 2013 NFL Draft. The Buckeyes figure to be among the top contenders for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s BCS National Championship Game, and Robyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return increases the likelihood of that possibility. Although banned from the postseason, OSU became one of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best teams in 2012, winning all 12 of its regular-season games. A big reason for the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success was Roby, who blossomed into one of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best cornerbacks under coach Urban Meyer and cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs. On a consistent basis throughout the season, Roby matched up in one-on-one coverage against the opposing teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best wide receiver â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and shut his opponent down. Roby consistently showed his ball skills and playmaking ability too. With 19 passes defended in 11 games, Roby had a rate of 1.73 passes defended per game, the best rate in the nation according to He also scored three total touchdowns, one each on an interception return, fumble return and punt block return. The Buckeyesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pass defense was very shaky at times during the 2012 season. They gave up 243.5 passing yards per game, ranking just 78th nationally in yards allowed, and gave up 32 passing plays of 20 yards or more according to cfbstats. com. Those shortcomings, however, were rarely a result of mistakes by Roby. When targeted during a game, Roby has proven to be far more likely to come up with a big play than the opposing receiver. The Buckeyes already had a number of key players from this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense not returning next season. Second-team AP All-American

OSU redshirt sophomore cornerback Bradley Roby attempts to pick up a fumble against Michigan on Nov. 24 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 26-21. defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins declared for the draft as a junior, while six senior starters graduated, including defensive end John Simon, who was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, and linebackers Etienne Sabino and Zach Boren. None of those losses, however, will hurt the Buckeyes next season as much as losing Roby would have. Returning safeties C.J. Barnett and Christian Bryant, who will both be seniors next season, are physically-gifted playmakers but inconsistent in deep pass coverage. Roby was the Buckeyesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; only consistently strong performer in the secondary this season, and with fellow cornerback Travis Howard lost to graduation, the Buckeyes would have had to replace both of their starting cornerbacks. With Robyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return, what could have been an area of major concern looks like a strength for the Buckeyes. He will lead a talented trio of returning starters in the secondary, while OSU has numerous

talented young players to compete for the other starting cornerback spot. Sophomore Doran Grant showed promise as the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nickel cornerback this season and freshman Armani Reeves is a gifted young talent at the position too. Defensive backs Eli Apple and Cam Burrows, both rated as four-star recruits by Rivals. com and, are enrolling early this semester as incoming freshmen. By making the decision to return to OSU, Roby surpassed the opportunity to be a first-round pick in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft. He was expected to be the third cornerback selected in the 2013 Draft, following Alabamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dee Milliner and Mississippi Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jonathan Banks. Even so, his decision to return could result in personal dividends. By coming back and making OSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national championship chances stronger, he puts himself in position to potentially leave Columbus with a championship ring, even if he declares for the 2014 Draft.

In the process, Roby could go from being one of the top cornerbacks in college football to the best at his position. Assuming Milliner declares for the draft as a junior, both first-team AP All-American cornerbacks and all three Jim Thorpe Award finalists from this season will have moved on to the NFL, leaving the door wide open for Roby to be college footballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top defensive back. Roby will have plenty of competition to be the top cornerback drafted in 2014, including Florida sophomore Loucheiz Purifoy. But Roby made significant development in his play between his freshman and sophomore seasons, and could do so again as a junior. By returning to school, Roby takes the risk of having a disappointing season and having his draft stock fall as a result. That risk, however, comes with big potential rewards: the chance to be the best cornerback in the nation, and perhaps most lucrative of all, the chance to help lead the Buckeyes to their first national championship since 2002.

Musical masterpieces comprised 2012 sHElBY lUM Lantern reporter Despite the Mayans’ grim prediction for 2012, music, just like the rest of the world, continued. Now that the stars have survived to 2013 it’s time for The Lantern’s review of the top 10 albums of 2012. 10. “Folarin” — Wale It might be just a mixtape, but Wale’s Christmas Eve release was an early gift for many. Littered with collaborations with artists such as 2 Chainz, Rick Ross and Travis Porter, the D.C. rapper cranked out more poetic rhymes focused on the new wave of lyrical rap. Fusing R&B and other musical genres, Wale created an undiscovered middle ground. Slipping in just before the new year with a Dec. 24 release date, “Folarin” topped the rap albums of the year. 9. “Attack on Memory” — Cloud Nothings Ragged and unapologetically darker than its debut, “Attack on Memory,” released Jan. 24, marks a slightly more retro style for the Cleveland-based band Cloud Nothings. Guitar riffs rage through all the tracks, and the lyrics have matured since the group’s first, self-titled album. The angsty lyrics don’t fall victim to immature clichés. At a short almost 34 minutes, Cloud Nothings pack aggressive track after track into a short sophomore effort that wildly exceeds its previous album. 8. “Celebration Rock” — Japandroids Recorded live and released June 5, “Celebration Rock” is a mark of

skill for Japandroids. Capping off at 35 minutes, the short album is a major improvement from its debut. The rock duo delivers emotional punches with every song. Lyrically, “Celebration Rock” is conceptual, and focuses on heaven and hell, dark and light. Significantly more raw (probably due to the live recording) and even more punk than its first album, Japandroids created a more experienced sophomore release. 7. “What We Saw From The Cheap Seats” — Regina Spektor The Moscow native took her quirky fusion of melancholy lyrics, beatboxing and seemingly never-ending vocal range to a new high. Spektor somehow managed to continue sounding like a cartoon character while simultaneously rolling out somber lyrics on this May 29 release. The anti-folk singer ranges from upbeat with “Don’t Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)” to “How,” the heartbroken piano ballad. 6. “Port of Morrow” — The Shins Five years of waiting for The Shins’ latest album, which was released on March 20, have not gone to waste, as “Port of Morrow” is more polished and more refined than the band’s previous releases. Frontman James Mercer’s familiar, soothing voice floods into fans’ speakers once again, with little change. The lead single, “Simple Song,” successfully manages to be uplifting without being corny, and Mercer’s lyrics are just as life-changing as Natalie Portman promised of the band’s song “New Slang” in “Garden State.” 5. “The Seer” — Swans Music veterans, Swans, cranked out another talent-packed album with “The Seer.” The second album after the band’s reformation, released Aug.

Bands to fuse jazz, electronic music, improvise in Columbus concert KaYla BYlER Design editor One band is hoping to use its music as a launch pad in order to direct its show in whatever direction the audience favors. “It’s like musical surfing,” said Billy Zehnal, Playhouse bass player and frontman. “We catch a wave and sometimes we crash and sometimes we ride one out.” Playhouse and Clave Sonic are scheduled to perform at the Rumba Cafe on Thursday at 9 p.m. Mark Subel, bass player for Clave Sonic, said the two bands complement each other with similar sounds. “Both bands bring this kind of fusion of jazz and very groove-based music,” Subel said. Playhouse’s sound is “a hybrid of jazz and electronic music,” Zehnal said. They also combine elements of funk where “the end result sounds kind of like a house DJ, but it’s a band.” Five full-time members, Zehnal, Don Carlos, Sean Ferguson, Jeffro Jam and Jason Branscum comprise Playhouse, but the band frequently brings in special guests that range from horn players to percussionists and even rappers, Zehnal said. However, he said for the show at Rumba Cafe, only the core members of Playhouse will be performing. Clave Sonic’s music is “a few different things coming together,” Subel said. Its sound combines R&B, funk, reggae, jazz and Latin jazz.

It’s like musical surfing. We catch a wave and sometimes we crash and sometimes we ride one out. Billy Zehnal bass player and frontman for Playhouse Subel, along with pianist Dean Marcellana, drummer Nathan Parker and drummer Justin Campbell make up Clave Sonic. Both bands heavily improvise during shows, which Zehnal said helps the band work the crowd’s energy. “We throw something out there, it’s like an energy ball, and hopefully the crowd sends it back,” he said. In addition to the energy at the actual show, Jon Lampley, a fifth-year in jazz studies and vice president of the Jazz Club at Ohio State, said shows like this one help bring energy to Columbus’ music scene in general. “When any local bands can get shows, it promotes the music scene in Columbus,” he said. The local jazz landscape is “more happening than people think it is,” Lampley said. “There’s a lot of world-class talented musicians right here in Columbus.” Clave Sonic and Playhouse are both based in Columbus and have been playing in the area for more than five years.

Playhouse has been around since summer 2006, Zehnal said. The band has released one full-length CD and will finish another soon, he said. Zehnal said the band’s name was inspired by a combination of his daughters and the type of music the band plays. “I was a new dad right around the time I started the band. I have twin girls, I was having a lot of fun with that notion of a playhouse,” he said. “We (also) do a lot of house-type stuff and it’s playful.” Clave Sonic formed about five years ago when a mutual friend introduced Subel to Marcellana. Marcellana had just moved from Boston to Columbus at the time. He “brought this Latin jazz influence from Boston that he was really exposed to,” Subel said. Clave, which was the main inspiration for the band’s name, is an “afro-heavy rhythm” popular in Latin music, he said. Subel said he has known Zehnal for quite a while. This show will be the first time the bands have played together, but Subel said he hopes it is something that can continue to happen. “We just thought it’d be a great time to mix both bands together,” Subel said. “It should be a pretty fun show. We’re really excited about it.” Zehnal agreed and said the crowd can anticipate a fun night. “The audience can expect the urge to dance, and that is even if they have two left feet,” he said. Tickets for Thursday’s show can be purchased at the door for between $5 and $10.

Each month, The Lantern will set out to highlight some of the best acts to come through the city: stay tuned to see what we think is worth the ticket price. January seems to be a bit of a slow month for concerts in Columbus â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as if the city is still trying to recuperate from a winter break. But as the month wears on, the number of concerts around Columbus picks up. And how better to forget the bitter chill of the winter wind than crowding indoors for some spicy live music? Freelance Whales â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jan. 20 at The Basement Freelance Whales is one of my favorite hidden gems in all of music. Its songs glow with positivity and are undeniably addictive. The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music tends to feature soft vocals folded into synthesizer and guitar riffs. With two vocalists, Judah Dadone and Doris Cellar, the band easily switches up sounds just by changing its featured soloist, and the quality of music soars when the two intertwine their voices on the same track. While Freelance Whales tend to fly under the radar of most music lovers, seeing the band in concert would be enough to convince almost anyone to become a fan. And while the band has only two albums under its belt, that is not a detriment to its live show. Any of the tracks it decides to pull from its library will fill The Basement with a joyful sound, leaving concertgoers with a smile and a new favorite tune. Tickets are available for $13 in advance or $15 at the door. Hundred Waters and Il Abanico are slated to open the show and doors open at 7 p.m. Marilyn Manson â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jan. 20, Lifestyle Communities Pavilion Competing with Freelance Whales for attention on Jan. 20 is an artist with a completely polar opposite sound â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Marilyn Manson. The provocative rock singer, whose real name is Brian Hugh Warner, has no trouble pushing boundaries onstage and off, but I guess thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you get when you combine Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson, the artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chosen namesakes. One thing you can count on from Marilyn Manson is a good show. Chances are he will leave the audience shocked, sweaty and craving more. The Canton, Ohio, native is known for his outrageous makeup and overthe-top stage personality and will surely put on a show worthy of the cost of admission. Tickets are available for $39 in advance and $42 the day of the show. Doors open at 7 p.m., and Butcher Babies is scheduled to open the show. Morrissey â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jan. 22, Lifestyle Communities Pavilion Originally scheduled for October, Morrissey made good on his promise to disappointed fans and rescheduled his Columbus show. Since gaining popularity as the lyricist and vocalist of The Smiths in the 1980s, Morrissey, whose real name is Steven Patrick Morrissey, has remained a bit of an enigma â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he keeps quiet, generally out of the eye of the media when it comes to his personal life and remains unsigned to a label. While Morrissey canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily deliver a show to go wild to, hearing this legend live would be worth every penny. His songs are soulful, and the audience will most likely find itself having no trouble connecting to him as he plays. And for fans looking forward to his originally scheduled show, the wait will be worthwhile.

Morrissey is slated to perform at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion Jan. 10. Tickets for the show are $45 and general admission. Doors open at 7 p.m., and Kristeen Young is set to open the show. Keane â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jan. 26, Newport Music Hall Without a doubt, most of us have heard popular Keane songs such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somewhere Only We Knowâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Changing.â&#x20AC;? Digging deeper into the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discography, one will find that the rest of the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s library is just as soothing. The band hails from England but has no trouble connecting with its American audiences. Keane is finishing off January touring through the United States with supporting act Youngblood Hawk before sailing down to Peru to begin a string of shows in South America. Both Keane and its opening act are bands fans of alternative rock wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to miss seeing live. Tickets for the show are $26.50 in advance and $28 the day of the show. Doors open at 7 p.m. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jan. 30, Newport Music Hall Grace Potter is a beautiful singer with a big, powerful voice, and the fact that she isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all over the radio waves is a detriment to listeners everywhere. I cannot think of any female singer of today whose voice is better, whose songs are better, or who puts on a better show than Potter does. Her powerhouse vocals are complemented by her band, which overall produces a refreshingly old-school sound that is beyond the quality of pop music dominating the charts today. The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music is infectious, and if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not too busy being blown away by Potterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably find yourself hard-pressed to not dance and let loose to the music. This is a concert you simply canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss. Tickets for the show are $22 in advance and $25 the day of the concert. Doors open at 7 p.m.

It might not have topped pop charts, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Seerâ&#x20AC;? took three decades of experience and crammed it into one album. Some tracks exceed 20, even 30 minutes and laugh at the conventional three-minute song rule.

The lead single, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Are Young,â&#x20AC;? shot the group to instantaneous fame and became the theme song of the invincible, young demographic.

Never Forget This Perfect Season Campus

Monday November 26, 2012 year: 132 No. 137

The Ohio State University

Seniors lead Buckeyes to perfect season

Ohio State 26 PAT BRENNAN Sports editor

For all intents and purposes, the 2012 Ohio State football senior class is gone, never to wear scarlet and gray in meaningful competition again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re losing some of your children when they go away to college,â&#x20AC;? said first-year OSU coach Urban Meyer after the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season-ending win against Michigan on Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our house is going to be empty.â&#x20AC;? Gone? Perhaps, but not forgotten. After all, it was their contributions that made the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run at perfection a possibility. Behind the strength of many of those 21 departing seniors, the No. 4-ranked Buckeyes (12-0, 8-0 Big Ten) clinched the sixth undefeated and untied season in program history and the first since 2002 Saturday with a 26-21 win against archrival Michigan (8-4, 6-2 Big Ten) at Ohio Stadium. The 109th edition of The Game saw OSU, the Big Tenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Leaders Division champions, claim its 44th win against the Wolverines. UM, eliminated from Big Ten title contention after Nebraska beat Iowa on Friday, still owns the all-time series advantage with a 58-44-6 record. With Saturday being the final game of the season due to the NCAAimposed postseason ban, one thing was evident within minutes of the final whistle following victory against UM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; no more seniors.

Michigan 21

Meyer handed out several â&#x20AC;&#x153;thank youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? during his postgame remarks, but the biggest thank you went out to those whose eligibility is up, players like Zach Boren, Etienne Sabino and John Simon. Theirs was an effort worthy of remembrance, Meyer said, and he plans to ensure that their memory doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fade away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to see to it when you walk into that Woody Hayes (Athletic Center) this team will never be forgotten, because they deserve that,â&#x20AC;? he said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not hard to imagine why Meyer feels so strongly. Boren switched positions midseason, jumping from offense to defense when he left the fullback position to join a depleted line backing corps. Boren hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played linebacker since high school but, in just six games, he tallied 50 tackles, including a team-high nine in the win against UM. One of those tackles was a bone-jarring sack of Wolverines junior quarterback Devin Gardner. Boren stood above Gardner after the hit, shouting and rattling his face mask just above Gardnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Sabino broke his leg during OSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oct. 6 win against Nebraska but returned in time to join the team for its divisional-clinching win against Wisconsin on Nov. 17, as well as the game against the Wolverines. The redshirt senior linebacker said the 2012 season was indeed a dream. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want it to end any other way,â&#x20AC;? he said. And there was Simon, a defensive end and the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emotional leader throughout the perfect campaign. Simon missed Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

[ a +e ] New York band on the rise to bring punk sound to C-Bus Patrick Bailey Lantern reporter Underground post-punk band Parquet Courts is making its way across the country in its first nationwide tour, which includes a stop in Columbus. Parquet Courts is scheduled to perform at Café Bourbon Street, a bar on Summit Street, Monday at 9 p.m. The band is touring to support the reissue of its debut album “Light Up Gold,” which is set to re-release on Jan. 15. “The tour’s been great,” Parquet Courts’ guitarist and co-lead vocalist Austin Brown said in a phone interview from the tour van, on the road somewhere between Oxford, Mo., and Nashville, Tenn. “We’ve had a lot of really fun shows.” The band members originally hail from Texas, where they met in college. But the band didn’t form until they reunited in New York in 2011, eight years later. The energy of Parquet Courts’ tunes carries over into its live shows, where “crowd surfing and pit moshing” are not uncommon, Brown said. Kevin DeBroux, a concert promoter at Café Bourbon Street, agreed that the show will be exciting. “It’s going to be a party,” DeBroux said. “It’s just good songs, good rock ‘n’ roll and a fun place.”

He added that the venue will mesh well with the band’s sound. “Superficially, it’s a little rough around the edges, but it’s a good-hearted punk bar with a good atmosphere,” DeBroux said. “And Columbus has a long history of high-energy, ramshackle rock ‘n’ roll bands, so they (Parquet Courts) fit in here well too.” DeBroux said he knew some of the band members and had hosted them at Café Bourbon Street under other bands, like Fergus & Geronimo, a band headed by Parquet Courts’ other lead singer Andrew Savage. “They contacted me and said they were rolling through town,” DeBroux said. “They were stoked to play, so it came together pretty easily.” Patrick Tilley, the band’s public relations manager from Pitch Perfect PR, said Parquet Courts’ recent growth in popularity has shown that has a promising future. “Pitch Perfect started working with the band in late 2012 and it’s been really exciting to see people discover the band and fall in love with them in a short amount of time,” he said. “It’s really eye catching in a big way.” Tilley said the group is likely headed for success beyond this coast-tocoast tour of America. “It’s a great chance to catch a band on the rise,” he said. “Hopefully in six months people will say, ‘I saw them when …’” Tickets for the show are $5 at Café Bourbon Street, located at 2216 Summit St. Supporting acts Connections, Psychedelic Horseshit and WV White will also be playing.
