Veteran victory


OSU credited its victory against Michigan Sunday to the experience of its players.

Michigan’s shot at No. 1 bucked by OSU MICHAEL PERIATT Managing editor for content Aaron Craft insisted all week it wasn’t about him versus Trey Burke. But with only seconds remaining in No. 15 Ohio State’s matchup against No. 2 Michigan, that’s exactly what it came down to. With 29 seconds left, OSU’s once dominating 21-point lead had been whittled down to two, and the sold-out crowd at the Schottenstein Center — some of which had been camping out for the game since Friday — roared in anxiety. Isolated one-on-one against Craft, Michigan’s

sophomore Player of the Year candidate stepped back and launched a three over Craft’s outstretched arm in the game’s waning seconds. “I thought it was going to go in when I turned around,� said Craft, a junior guard. And for a second it appeared he was right. But then the ball rattled around the rim and squirted into the arms of a leaping junior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. His free throws, along with Craft’s, put the contest away in the final 14 seconds as OSU pulled away for a grueling 56-53 victory. The missed shot gave OSU (13-3, 3-1) its first win against a ranked team in four attempts this season and allowed the Buckeyes to remain within striking distance in the young Big Ten season.

“It’s always in the back of your mind,� Craft said. “We haven’t played our best when we played the better teams that we played throughout this year. I think we just took a step back and found a way to get a big win.� The victory was a stark contrast to OSU’s previous contests against No. 1 Duke, No. 6 Kansas and No. 12 Illinois when the Buckeyes never shot better than 35 percent and struggled to find an offensive rhythm outside of junior forward Deshaun Thomas. OSU shot 52 percent from the floor Sunday, and though Thomas led the way, it was far

Rape case closed due to lack of cooperation LIZ YOUNG Senior Lantern reporter

Ohio State Police closed its investigation of a rape reported on campus in the hours after the Mirror Lake jump because the “victim refused to cooperate,� according to an University Police report. The location of the Nov. 21 incident was also changed to Paterson Hall from Park-Stradley Hall after police learned that is where the incident occurred, said Deputy Chief of University Police Richard Morman. The reported rape was one of several alleged sex crimes that was originally reported to University Police in Park-Stradley Fall Semester. An Oct. 12 alleged rape has also been recently closed, while a Nov. 4 reported gross sexual imposition is still listed as “investigation pending.� The victim of the alleged rape on Nov. 21 — an 18-year-old female Park-Stradley resident — told police she returned with the suspect, a male Paterson resident, to the suspect’s dorm room after participating in the Mirror Lake jump. The two reportedly had sexual intercourse. Upon later returning to her dorm room, the victim became visibly upset, and a male staff member called the police, according to the University Police report.

However, the victim decided not to press charges, and the case was later closed because the “victim refused to cooperate,� according to the report. Residence hall staffs are trained to call the police in response to situations such as potential sex crimes, said Dave Isaacs, OSU spokesman for Student Life. “Part of the RA (resident adviser) training is that they notify the hall director immediately, at any hour of the day or night, when they become aware of a situation. The hall directors notify law enforcement, but it is up to those involved to decide whether to talk to the police and whether they ultimately chose to press charges,� Isaacs said in an email. Morman also said the victim is generally given the final say on whether to pursue the case. “We usually err on the side of caution in what the victim, the sexual assault victim, desires,� Morman said. “We gave her (the victim) some additional time and we got back with her again, ‘Is this absolutely what you want to do?’� Morman said it does not happen often that victims do not cooperate. “Sometimes (reported victims) initially don’t know what they want to do, and part of our (police officers’) job is to help them do what’s right,� Morman said. Some on-campus residents feel that the hall staff automatically calling the police helps ensure that the situation is better understood.

“I think a lot of times girls especially would be hesitant to get some sort of authority involved and I feel like it’s better to take a more precautionary measure as someone who’s able to, you know, the hall staff, then just let it go,� said Alyson Beiling, a Mack Hall resident and a first-year in exploration. “If (the victim) had decided that she didn’t want to but she’s still so upset, then I feel like it’s better for the hall staff to call the cops and get involved and just make sure.� Other dorm residents think that the decision to get police involved should be left up to the victim. “I think it should be up to the girl,� said David D’lima, a first-year in microbiology and a Morrison Tower resident. “She went through the event, she can decide if it was traumatizing enough to get police involved.� Isaacs said that although hall staffs have not gone through any additional training since these reported sex crimes, “any incident heightens awareness of the need and importance for (their extensive) training.� The victim and one other student listed on the report refused an interview with The Lantern. Other students listed on the report did not immediately respond to emails, and hall staff members referred The Lantern to Isaacs for comment. There were 10 rapes reported on OSU’s campus in 2012, four of which are listed as case closed. Five rapes were reported in 2011, one of which has been closed, according to the University Police log.

Visitors who park on campus might find their pockets a bit lighter due to an increase in the parking cost in garages around Ohio State. Jan. 1 marked a $1 to $2 increase in charge for visitors to park in a parking garage for one to five hours. Rates for customers parking six or more hours will pay the same as in the past. “This change was a result of a collaborative discussion with university leaders to reflect a more favorable outcome for our customers than what was defined in the original concession agreement,� said Sarah Blouch, director of CampusParc. The decision to lease OSU’s roughly 36,000 parking spots to an outside vendor for a $483 million, 50-year contract was approved by the OSU Board of Trustees on June 22. The deal with QIC Global Infrastructure, an Australia-based investment company, gave them control over the operations of parking garages, lots and permit sales on campus. The day-to-day operations are handled by CampusParc. “The transition of parking operations occurred in September and was carefully managed to ensure that

everyone’s experience was as smooth as possible,� said Lindsay Komlanc, OSU Administration and Planning spokeswoman, in an email. Blouch said the purpose of the price increase is to fund new technologies in the parking garages that will speed up exit times. “New technology has been installed in the 12th Avenue Garage that is similar to equipment used in many downtown garages, allowing payment to be made at the exit lane, or also as you walk back to your car, (using) machines called ‘Pay on Foot,’� Blouch said. The “Pay on Foot� machines are automated cashiering stations where customers can pay for parking on the way to their car. Casey Hawkins, a first-year in microbiology and Spanish, said the implemented payment method sounds more convenient. “I think the ‘Pay on Foot’ sounds like a much better idea than just driving up, because a lot of times after an event or something it’s really backed up and annoying. You have to wait to pay and sometimes you don’t have a lot of cash on you,� Hawkins said. Updates have also been made to the exit gate software in the hourly garages that has resulted in notably decreased transaction times. Gates take five

campus Students flock to spring break trips through Buck-I-SERV LIZ DICKEY Lantern reporter As Spring Semester gets under way, hundreds of students are waiting to hear how they’ll be spending spring break. The application deadline for spring break trips with Buck-I-SERV passed on Sunday, and if previous years are any indication, there will be more than enough applicants for the university planned service trips. According to the Buck-I-SERV website, 1,185 students applied for trips from 2010 to 2011, and 670 students participated. Buck-I-SERV receives 5.2 percent of the student activity fee — this percentage amounting to $202,488 for this fiscal year. This student-run organization provides opportunities for students at Ohio State to go on week-long, substance-free alternative break trips. The service trips are held during winter break, spring break and the summer to offer students alternatives to a traditional break vacation.

The number of applicants to OSU continues to outpace the number of students admitted.


KAYLA BYLER / Design editor

KRISTINE VARKONY Lantern reporter Ohio State’s acceptance rate has fallen more than 10 percentage points in the past decade as the number of applications continues to increase overall. At this time 10 years ago, Ohio State had 19,989 applicants and an acceptance rate of 75 percent. As of Friday morning, exactly three weeks before the Feb. 1 deadline for the autumn 2013 class, there were 25,299. Last year at this time OSU had received 23,101 applications. The university received more than 5,000 applications in the last three weeks, bringing the total number to 28,675 applicants. The university accepted 64 percent of the 28,675 applicants last year. Those who made the decision to come to OSU made up the 7,186 students of the 2012 freshman class. Applications submitted to the university reached an all-time high in 2011 with 29,247 applicants, more than what was received in 2012 and Undergraduate Admissions is looking to top that number with the switch to the Common Application. “The Common Application works in some ways as a marketing tool,� said Vern Granger,

associate vice president and director of Undergraduate Admissions and First Year Experience. “Most schools that go to the Common Application see an increase in interest in the university, so that is what Ohio State and most universities are looking to see as well.� The Common Application is used by 488 schools. A handful of other Ohio and Big Ten schools use it, including Miami University (Ohio), Northwestern University and the University of Michigan. Granger said the application process is longer this year because the Common Application consists of two parts: general information that every institution requires and an OSU-specific supplement for Honors, Scholars and the Morrill Scholars consideration. “In the past, those applications were separate applications, but this year they all have been combined into one,� he said. Jumana Ali, a fourth-year in Arabic and international studies, said she thinks the switch to the Common Application was a good idea. “If it makes it easier to apply to colleges, then I think it’s a good idea,� she said. “I obviously don’t have to worry about it, but for fellow (future) OSU Buckeyes I guess it’s a good idea.� Rachel Vlaskovich, a fourth-year in history and political science, agreed. “I think it’s a good thing as long as the

standards of the university don’t lessen because of more applicants,� she said. Standards are not lessening at OSU according to data provided by Undergraduate Admissions. The freshmen class that began Autumn Semester 2012 had an ACT score that was almost three points higher at 28.1 than it was 10 years ago, and students graduating in the top 10 percent of their senior class is up to 54 percent in 2012 compared to 33 percent in 2003, according to Undergraduate Admissions. “We’re looking at the academic record and the academic performance. (Admissions is) looking at the test scores, and we’re looking at the things students are doing outside of the classroom,� Granger said. “Above all, the first thing for any applicant that is ultimately admitted to the university, we have to feel that student can be academically successful at the university.� Granger said the switch to the Common Application has been a positive experience and “has allowed us to provide better service to the students.� “As far as the university goes and the type of students, I see nothing but positives ahead. I think that we are going to continue to attract a very well-rounded, a very strong pool of students,� he said.

Michigan from 1A more than OSUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading scorer that helped the Buckeyes jump out to a commanding 20-point advantage about 10 minutes into the first half. Craft, who has been criticized for a lack of production on the offensive end, attacked the basket early, scoring from both the outside and in. He stepped into a three in the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening minutes and followed it up by twice slicing to the basket, finishing with nine points and four assists. Sophomore forward Sam Thompson added a spark as well, equaling his season average of seven points before the nine minute mark of the first half. Then there was Thomas, who continued his high-level of offensive play this season, with 20 points, including two 3-pointers in the first half â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one of which fueled him and many of his teammates to pound their chests on the way down court. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was geeked, as they say,â&#x20AC;? Thomas said. The biggest contributor of all though, might have been the Buckeye defense, which smothered the Wolverines from the opening tip. Led by Craft, OSU forced 13 turnovers, nine of which came in the first half. Burke, junior guard Tim Hardaway Jr., and freshman guard Nik Stauskas came into the game averaging a combined 48 points per contest but were held to just 27 points on 9-for-31 shooting Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ohio State is a really, really good defensive team,â&#x20AC;? said Michigan coach John Beilein. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Really good. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing a team that plays defense, buys into it and very skilled defenders out on the perimeter.â&#x20AC;? Behind that defense, OSU built a 29-8 advantage, but slowly Michigan started chipping away. By halftime the lead was down to 12. A 10-0 run cut the lead to one and, with 6:59 remaining, the score was knotted up at 46. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We stopped executing,â&#x20AC;? said OSU coach Thad Matta. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need five guys to play and we went through a stretch there when only the guy on the screen and the guy with the ball were the only guys playing.â&#x20AC;? But it was the Buckeyes that would write the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final chapter. Back-to-back buckets from senior forward Evan Ravenel and a jumper from Thomas gave OSU a six-point lead it would never relinquish. After Burke misfired on his late-game three, free throws sealed the win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the past we might have splintered apart on that run,â&#x20AC;? Craft said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we just kind of got together and took a few deep breaths and understood that our system has worked throughout the game and it was going to work down the stretch.â&#x20AC;? The win moves the Buckeyes to 13-3 on the year and hands Michigan, which was previously the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only unbeaten team, its first loss of the season. It also prevented the Wolverines from rising to the top of the national rankings, and though the basketball rivalry between the two schools

Parking from 1A seconds per transaction compared to one minute last year, which speeds up exit time for people leaving the garages, said Blouch. However, some students said they would prefer lower prices over faster exits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve parked in one garage,â&#x20AC;? said Katie Corley, an OSU alumna who resides in the campus area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think I was there for like four or five hours, and I paid like nine bucks. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too much. I would rather wait in the line to get out. I like the technology, but I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to pay more for it.â&#x20AC;?

The student activity fee covers 60 percent of the tripâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cost, leaving the remaining 40 percent to be covered by each Buck-I-SERV participant. Each full-time student pays a $37.50 activity fee every semester. The student activity fee generated $4.48 million in fiscal year 2012, according to Lantern archives. Dave Isaacs, Student Life spokesman, said the student activity fee helps keep the price of going on the trip low for students, which according to the Ohio Union website, ranges between $175 and $350 for domestic trips. However, the international trips are significantly more expensive. A spring break trip to Belize City, Belize, costs $1,000 per participant, and summer trips to Cape Town, South Africa, and Ghana cost $3,500 and $1,200, respectively, according to the Buck-I-SERV website.

Ravenel said. OSU is set to next play Michigan State Saturday in East Lansing, Mich.

all students and staff on a daily basis, some who live farther away from campus do not agree with the high cost of parking at OSU. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It discourages me from driving on campus,â&#x20AC;? Corley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drive on campus because of how much you have to pay to park. I just drive as close as I can to campus, and then I walk because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much cheaper.â&#x20AC;? Michelle Gettemy, a third-year in nursing, said that while she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t normally park on campus, the increased charge would be a problem for her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d probably be annoyed (having to pay more), because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a college student and a

couple extra dollars to park would be frustrating,â&#x20AC;? Gettemy said. However, some students said the parking cost increase is for the best if it will prevent future problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, the increase in price is a pretty steep increase, however I believe theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using the money for a good thing if it can improve the process of entering and exiting the garages, especially on days, football game days for example, where that can become clustered,â&#x20AC;? said Kevin Cox, a third-year in finance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At least their using the money for the right thing so it can improve the process down the road.â&#x20AC;?

Lydia Nader, Buck-I-SERV president and third-year in human nutrition, said during her freshmen year she took her first trip with Buck-I-SERV to Charleston, S.C., working with the nonprofit organization Habitat for Humanity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It provided me with opportunities to look within myself and see what this experience was providing for me and what was I doing to better the community I was working with,â&#x20AC;? Nader said. Her latest trip was to Ghana, where Buck-I-SERV traveled to for the first time over winter break. While there, Nader and her team listened to stories and met people dealing with HIV and AIDS. Nader plans the alternative break trips for Buck-I-SERV with help from an advisory board of about 20 members. The advisory board applications will be released Jan. 23, and no experience with the organization is necessary to apply. Advisory board members

help plan the trips and have the opportunity to go on them as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Buck-I-SERV) is great for students who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t maybe have the time in their major to do a study abroad,â&#x20AC;? Nader said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It provides that opportunity to have something different than what their normal routine for four years is.â&#x20AC;? Sally Patton, a fourth-year in public affairs, is planning to go to Belize this spring break for her second Buck-I-SERV trip and her first experience as a student trip leader. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since I am graduating, it is a fun way to end my undergraduate career here,â&#x20AC;? Patton said. Nader said providing an impressionable experience is what Buck-I-SERV is all about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to provide students with an opportunity to learn more about themselves on these trips (rather) than just going and doing service and leaving, and not gaining anything from that experience,â&#x20AC;? Nader said.

Local band Twenty One Pilots treated 300 of its most loyal fans to a free impromptu performance Friday night at The Basement, just three days after releasing its debut album. Twenty One Pilots founder and former Ohio State student Tyler Joseph, along with drummer Josh Dun, broke the news via Twitter late Thursday afternoon announcing a show for the following evening. Less than two hours later, all 300 free tickets were snatched up on a first-come, first-served basis from the PromoWest Productions box office on Neil Avenue. Coming off a breakout year in 2012 that included being signed by a major record label, touring across the country and releasing its debut album, the members knew that honoring their roots with a hometown show was essential. “Scheduling-wise, (a Columbus show) didn’t fit in line with when our CD came out,” Joseph said. “We could have just released a CD, chilled, and then gone out on the road. But we were home, and we were available … so why not play a smaller show to commemorate that CD release?” Over the course of two hours, Twenty One Pilots energized the crowd that filled The

Twenty One Pilots performed a surprise show at The Basement Jan. 11 for 300 fans.

“We have been all across the country, and there’s still yet to be a crowd that’s this intense,” said Mark Eshleman, the band’s videographer. “All these fans really care about this band. It’s just unreal being here, and this will always be home.” “Vessel,” the debut album from Twenty One Pilots under its new label, Fueled By Ramen, released Tuesday and features 12 songs. Many of the songs on the album had already been heard on amateur albums released before the band was signed to the label and were simply recorded again professionally. The remaining songs on the album had never been heard live prior to Friday night, Joseph said. “It was fun. I wouldn’t want to play (the new songs) anywhere else,” Joseph said. “And now we are going to go out and hone them.” As the band prepares for an extensive road tour in the coming weeks, it appeared that some Twenty One Pilots fans in attendance were left with yet another special memory after Friday’s surprise show. “(The show) was awesome,” said Nicole Smith, a second-year in marketing at OSU who was in attendance on Friday. “And it was cool to be the first people ever to hear a lot of the songs live.”

When it comes to film, quality is important, but so are the creativity and originality of the content. Some filmmakers aim to show off all three qualities right here in Ohio. The Wexner Center for the Arts announced last week via its website that it will accept submissions from Ohio filmmakers, and the best pieces will be selected from a panel of judges to be showcased in the 18th annual film festival called Ohio Shorts. The entry form can be found on the Wexner Center’s website starting Monday, and the deadline to submit content is March 22. The festival has one goal: to promote Ohio filmmakers and their work, said Jennifer Lange, curator of the Film/Video Studio Program at the Wexner Center and organizer of the event, who also said the idea sprang from her predecessor who wanted to showcase Ohio’s talented artists. “There are a lot of artists in Columbus, (in) Franklin County,” Lange said. “There are (also) great film schools here in Ohio: OU (Ohio University), BGSU (Bowling Green State University) and Cleveland State (University). It’s pretty tremendous and you wouldn’t know about it if this thing didn’t exist.” Lange said the films vary in artistic content, where nothing is off limits. “We’ll get a one-minute performance piece, or a 20-minute documentary,” she said. “We get narratives, experimental work, animation and a dance on camera.” Visit for the rest of the story.

OSU art students to display ‘Recent Arrivals’ in new on-campus exhibit Shelby Lum Lantern reporter Along with the exterior’s new glass walls, and new photography labs and print shop, Ohio State’s newly renovated Hopkins Hall is set to feature fresh faces and talent. “Recent Arrivals” is scheduled to open Monday and showcase the work of 16 first-year graduate students in the art department. “This is an opportunity for OSU students and the community to meet these grads who are going to be on this campus for the next two or three years,” said Leigh Lotocki, communications coordinator at Urban Arts Space, which is partnering with OSU’s Department of Art for the exhibit. Lotocki said that because there are no restrictions on what students can make for the exhibit, students tend to experiment with the artwork they submit. “This is not an assignment,” she said. “They are not assigned pieces, but they are asked to present new work since they have arrived at OSU.” The students will represent several areas of study found within the art department, including art and

Shane McGeehan, a first-year graduate student in art, is showing a photography piece called “The Last Sonata.” The piece is a surreal image about the creative mind at work, McGeehan

said. Rather than seeing the artist, though, the viewer sees the inside of his mind, he said. First-year graduate student in art TradeMark Gunderson, whose real name is Mark Gunderson, contributed a piece called “Object Turntable,” which plays objects rather than records. For Gunderson, audience participation is key to understanding the piece.

“It’s not really a finished work until I actually see someone play with it,” Gunderson said. “Recent Arrivals” focuses on connecting both the artists with each other and connecting the community with the artists, Lotocki said. “My hope is that people will feel like they are being introduced to this new class,” she said. “(The show is) a way to get on the inside track on what’s going on in the art department.” Gunderson agreed. “A lot of us have been in the same seminars, but we haven’t seen what we have all been working on,” Gunderson said. Another exhibit showcasing these students will take place when they graduate. “If anyone goes to both shows, they are able to see the breadth of their work,” said Zoey Boyles, deputy director of operations at Urban Arts Space. “Recent Arrivals” begins Monday and runs through Feb. 7 in Hopkins Hall Gallery, located at 128 North Oval Mall.

Buckeye vets come through in the clutch Pat Brennan Sports editor An experienced Ohio State men’s basketball was simply too much for a highly touted but youthful Michigan team to overcome. The No. 15 Buckeyes sat back early and picked its spots to strike on offense, eventually building a 21-point first half lead as the No. 2-ranked Wolverines ran itself into that hole with an admittedly overexcited, high-pressure defense. UM tied the game late in regulation but the steadying influence of OSU senior forward Evan Ravenel, junior forward Deshaun Thomas and junior guard Aaron Craft fended off the visitor’s comeback attempt as the Buckeyes (13-3, 3-1 Big Ten) won, 56-53, against the Wolverines (16-1, 3-1 Big Ten) Sunday at the Schottenstein Center. Thomas, Ravenel, Craft and junior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. combined for the 10 points OSU needed in the final 5:28 of regulation to pull away and clinch the team’s first win against a ranked opponent in four tries this season. “I think we have a good backbone to lean on with me, (Thomas), (Ravenel) and Lenzelle, who have been here for three years and been with some great leaders and seen what it takes to be successful,” Craft said. Ravenel contributed crucial buckets late in regulation before finishing with six points, while Thomas went for a game-high 20 points. Craft added nine points of his own and Smith Jr. finished with four points. There was plenty for the Wolverines to be excited about in the game: A win would have all but guaranteed them ascension to the No. 1 spot in top 25 polls after current

No. 1-ranked Duke’s Saturday loss to N.C. State. Victory also meant the possibility of a 17-0 record — a would-have-been program record. But for the midseason rivalry game with so much on the line, four of the nine players that UM coach John Beilein sent on the floor — including two starters — were freshmen that played at least 11 minutes. One additional freshman — UM guard Caris LeVert — played nine minutes for UM. Beilein said the excitement of the moment might have got the best of his young team. “We got very, very excited about this opportunity and we got out and challenged too much away from our base defense,” Beilein said. “There’s a lot of challenges there that we maybe made it tougher on ourselves.” While OSU needed a signature win to bolster its NCAA Tournament resume, Michigan earned its tournament credentials long ago — its 16-0 record to start the season and previous wins against then-No. 18 N.C. State, Pittsburgh, Kansas State and West Virginia all speak to that. UM’s talent showed in Sunday’s game as it fought back to cut its 21-point deficit to 12 by halftime before tying the game late and even taking a shot at a potential game-winning score in the final minute. OSU’s swarming defense, led by Craft, produced 13 turnovers. In typical Craft fashion, the Buckeyes’ third-year guard stymied one of the opponent’s best — this time, it was UM sophomore guard and Columbus-native Trey Burke. Through the opening 20 minutes, Craft limited the Northland High School product to five points on 2-of-5 shooting. Visit to read the rest of

OSU coach Urban Meyer looks up at the jumbotron during a men’s basketball game against Michigan on Jan. 13 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 56-53.

The first question for Ohio State coach Urban Meyer probably wasn’t what you’d expect it to be. It wasn’t about who the team’s leaders would be after losing former captains John Simon, Zach Boren, Garrett Goebel and Etienne Sabino. It wasn’t about sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller, or about the return of running back Jordan Hall after being granted a medical redshirt for 2012. It wasn’t even about how Meyer and the Buckeyes’ defense would replace seven starters, including four-of-five captains, and junior defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, who chose to forgo his senior year and enter the 2013 NFL Draft. No — the first question aimed at Meyer in his first press conference in more than a month was about Bowl Championship Series National Champion Alabama and if OSU could raise itself to the Crimson Tide’s level next year. After the program’s first undefeated campaign since 2002, an appearance on the sport’s highest stage might be a plausible in 2013. But Meyer isn’t buying it. “For me to say we have to get (to the national championship) next year, that’s like me talking about we have to go fly to the moon,” Meyer said Friday. “We’re nowhere near even having that conversation.” Meyer, who witnessed Alabama’s 42-14 win against Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship game for himself

as a guest analyst for ESPN, lauded coach Nick Saban’s squad as the most fundamentally sound group he’s seen all year. Meyer couldn’t say the same for OSU. “Fundamentally we are not where we need to be,” Meyer said. At least not this early in January. In part, the team’s pursuit of fundamentals is why Meyer said he installed a new team mantra: “Truth.” “Truth means … you have a good season and there’s a lot of conversation about things that really shouldn’t be discussed because it’s not true,” Meyer said. Such noise could be the buzz surrounding OSU as early national title contenders next season. Meyer, though, maintained the Buckeyes have their work cut out for them — particularly when it pertains to elite teams like Alabama. “To say that we could roll in there and beat a team like that, I don’t know,” he said. “Honest answer, right now, (we have) too many holes to fill.” But don’t mistake Meyer’s stance as a lack of confidence in his squad. He said OSU can play with anyone. “I think we’re a very good team that could compete with any team in the country. I didn’t feel that way early in the year, even in the middle of the year,” he said. “But the last game, I even said that after the season, that’s where I believe we are.”


Men’s hockey splits weekend series against Ferris State Follow Us @LanternSports

Matthew Mithoefer Lantern reporter The Ohio State men’s ice hockey team split a road series with Ferris State over the weekend. The Buckeyes defeated the Bulldogs, 3-1, in Big Rapids, Mich., Friday night before falling by the same score Saturday. The Buckeyes started slow Saturday night and found themselves trailing by two goals before the end of the opening period. The Bulldogs’ (10-9-3, CCHA 8-7-1-0) two goals were separated by 32 seconds. “Their first period was outstanding,” OSU coach Mark Osiecki said of Ferris State’s attack. “They came out flying.” OSU was unable to find the net until the 7:54 mark of the third. Sophomore forward Max McCormick tallied his seventh goal of the year on a

rebound he collected near the net. The Buckeyes trailed, 2-1, with 12 minutes remaining to score an equalizer. Despite a final period in which OSU was twice on the power play and out-shot Ferris State, 8-6, the Buckeyes were unable to pull even. With 24 seconds remaining in regulation, the Bulldogs scored on an empty net to cement the victory and the series split. OSU senior goalie Brady Hjelle highlighted the series’ opening victory with 38 saves and came within nine minutes of earning his fourth shutout of the season. Osiecki said his team was ready for the test Ferris State presented after an impressive week of practice. “I think our preparation all week was outstanding,” Osiecki said. “I thought our guys carried that right into the game.” OSU (8-9-5, CCHA 7-4-3-1) grabbed a lead it would not relinquish at the 8:22 mark of the first period on a goal by junior forward Alex Szczechura.

OSU junior forward Chris Crane added two scores of his own, giving him five on the season, to provide the winning margin. The Buckeyes entered and left the weekend series tied for fourth in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association with Ferris State. The two squads sit eight points behind first place Notre Dame with less than two months remaining until the conference tournament begins. In that time, the team hopes to improve the consistency of its level of play. “We had a really good game Friday, and we came out today a little on our heels and they took it to us,” OSU junior forward Travis Statchuk said after Saturday’s loss. Hjelle said OSU “can’t take any periods off.” “We just have to learn that we have to show up to play every night,” Hjelle said. OSU continues its season and conference play Friday at Northern Michigan at 7:30 p.m.

studentvoice Jay-Z to score ‘Great Gatsby’ out of Jazz Age with rap lantern Columnist

Hip-hop mogul Jay-Z expands his horizons as he lends his musical talents to score one the most anticipated films of 2013. Some of us might have seen it coming kat niu when we heard his voice in the first trailer of “The Great Gatsby,” which featured “No Church in the Wild” by Jay-Z and Kanye West, featuring Frank Ocean. While West was busy collaborating with Kim Kardashian, it was announced late December that Jay-Z will collaborate with producer/singer/ filmmaker Jeymes Samuel of The Bullitts to score “Gatsby.” Samuel tweeted: “Jay-Z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #CLASSIC The Great Gatsby! It is too DOPE for

words.” We wouldn’t expect anything less than dope from the influential rapper. Films have so many important components. From the costumes to the sets, casting to editing, music is just one piece of the production — although a very crucial piece. To find the perfect song to encompass the exact emotion and sentiment of a scene can evoke a powerful response from the audience. Baz Luhrmann, the director of “The Great Gatsby,” is known for pairing classic movies with modernized soundtracks as seen in “Romeo and Juliet” and “Moulin Rouge.” “The Great Gatsby,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, is based on the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald and is set during the Jazz Age. But there is nothing 1920s about Jay-Z. In fact, Jay-Z has been in the music industry for decades — a feat that cannot be done without staying up-to-date with an artistic direction and vision. The juxtaposition of the upbeat hip-hop/rap style Jay-Z is known for can certainly put a twist on the American classic. Instead of using music to set the time period, a more modern soundtrack can bring the liveliness of the parties and charm of the Roaring

The connection drawn between the viewer, the song and where we normally hear that song can evoke memories and tie similarities and as a result, bring a certain level of reality to fiction. The anticipation can only build as more and more A-list stars contribute to this summer’s hit (Lady

Gaga and Prince are also rumored to appear on the soundtrack). This unpredictable yet expected collaboration will add a touch of the 21st century to the 20th century. The constant contrast between time periods will definitely shine a new light of this remake. “The Great Gatsby” is set to hit theatres May 10.

Despite cultured platform, Miss America contestants still seem to be just babes in bikinis actually revealed, viewers are only left to see the side of the contestants flaunting themselves down the catwalk, making them more of a sex object than role model. This isn’t what the competition is meant to embody though. According to its website, “The Miss America program exists to provide personal and professional opportunities for young women to promote their voices in culture, politics and the community.” But from what viewers get to see, it seems the only thing the young women promote are their bodies. In order to make the girls’ platforms known and to allow their personalities to shine, the competition should air in its entirety, putting more emphasis on their voices instead of their looks and the entertainment value of its airtime — entertainment which in most cases puts the girls in an embarrassing light instead of a respectable one. The cheesiness that comes with airing the competition on TV set in at the very beginning of its runtime. The girls were dancing to club music at various locations and introducing themselves with horrible references to their states, including mentions of Honey Boo Boo, Tootsie Pops and even Sasquatch. Once the contestants took the stage dancing to One Direction, right off the bat the top 15 were weeded out and viewers didn’t even know why one girl was

chosen over another because we didn’t get to see the preliminaries. The worst portrayal of the contestants is in the swimsuit competition, during which the girls strangely seemed to strut themselves down the catwalk with more confidence than when wearing their evening wear. This is baffling because it’d be more appropriate for the girls to feel more confident in a respectable dress rather than impersonating a stripper wearing heels and little clothing. But the show must go on, clothing or not. Then there was the talent competition, which included the stereotypical tap dancing routines galore, baton twirling, piano playing and, of course, singing. I found myself crossing my fingers that we’d get some comedic relief with a Gracie Lou Freebush playing wine glasses or something original. The singing was the most painful of all. But the thought of what judge McKayla Maroney’s face was doing when Miss Tennessee sang Adele was quite entertaining to me. One should know not to try to mimic the vocals of that Grammy-winning-powerhouse. It would have been safer for Tennessee to go with a song sung by someone with less of a reputation, such as Selena Gomez. Miss Maryland’s rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Miserables wasn’t too bad. But it sure didn’t

As Miss New York Mallory Hytes Hagan was crowned Miss America 2013 Saturday, the only thought that ran across my mind as she was gripping those horribly long-stemmed roses was I can’t even pinpoint her sarah pfledderer platform. I could, however, tell you what contestant looked best and worst in a bikini and who had the cutest gown. Such a shame that after tuning into the two-hour competition, the only thing I could remember from it was the exaggerated sex appeal of the contestants, not-so-subtle subliminal advertisements from hosts Chris Harrison and Brooke Burke-Charvet and gruesome talent competition. Given that the preliminaries aren’t aired on TV, which is assumedly because that’s when the boring interviews take place and the girls’ personalities are

match Anne Hathaway’s performance in the movie. Miss New York did well with her tap dancing routine though, dancing to James Brown’s “Get Up Offa That Thing.” It became clear she was a frontrunner, however, when she answered her interview question regarding gun control attempts in schools as a response the Newtown, Conn., shooting. Perhaps this was also because she had the most serious question of all asked. Other questions centered on topics such as reality TV, which alluded to more Honey Boo Boo references, and ESPN broadcaster Brent Musberger’s comments about University of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron’s girlfriend Katherine Webb. Apparently questions were aimed to be as trashy as the portrayal of the contestants. An exception to this could be made for evening wear though, with disregard to a few too-high slits and some see-through fabric. Most girls donned white gowns and a former queen said this was because of a superstition that you have to wear white to win. That superstition seemed to strike true this year as runner-up Miss South Carolina and New York were in white as they awaited the announcement of who would be crowned Miss America. What a shame their attire is all I can remember about them.
