Exceeding expectations

OSU coach Urban Meyer said the Buckeye offense is further along than he expected after scoring 63 points Saturday.

[ a+e ]

Call it a prophecy. Call it luck. Heck, call it divine intervention. Call it whatever you want, but Ohio State redshirt sophomore cornerback Bradley Roby had a dream. And during Saturday’s 63-38 win under the lights in Ohio Stadium against Nebraska, it came true. “I had a dream earlier this week I was gonna get a pick-six. I was telling everybody, this is my game, I’ma get a pick-six,� said Roby, who predicted Wednesday that he would have his first interception of the season against the Cornhuskers. Strange? Perhaps. But soothsaying might run in the family. “My dad texted me this morning and was like, ‘I had a dream you had a pick-six today,’� Roby said wide-eyed with conviction of his vision from the night before. “I’m like, dang, I’ma get it, I had the same dream.� Stuff like that, he said, just happens. “It’s just crazy. I just wanted to make as many plays as I can for my team,� Roby said. That mental disposition certainly seemed to be on display during a game that saw the Horseshoe turn into an “inferno� — even in nippy 52-degree weather. And, at least for a little while, it might have looked like the Buckeyes needed the cornerback to make every play he possibly could.

OSU redshirt sophomore cornerback Bradley Roby (1) returns an interception for a touchdown with Nebraska junior wide receiver Quincy Enunwa (18) chasing after him in the 1st quarter at Ohio Stadium Oct. 6. OSU won, 63-38. a record 106,102 people was eerily quiet just six minutes into the contest. First-quarter struggles, however, haven’t been a novel predicament for the Buckeyes this season.

After the Buckeyes’ offense clumsily opened college football’s primetime nightcap with back-toback, three-and-out drives, Roby seized the game’s momentum — and score — when OSU might’ve needed it the most.

Obama, Will.i.am to visit the Oval Tuesday Ally Marotti Editor-in-chief marotti.5@osu.edu For the fifth time in two years, President Barack Obama will come to Ohio State’s campus. As originally reported by The Lantern, Obama is scheduled to host a grassroots event on the Oval with special guest Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas Tuesday. Doors are scheduled to open 2 p.m. at the corner of Neil and West 17th avenues. The event is free and open to the public, although attendees will need to RSVP for entry, which can be done on Obama’s website. Tickets are also available at the Obama for America offices in the South Campus Gateway, Clintonville, Whitehall, Upper Arlington and German Village. Gustavo Castaneda, a third-year in aerospace engineering, said his schoolwork will keep him from attending the event. “I have midterms before and homework to do,� he said. “I really have to allocate my time to that.� Obama was last in Columbus Sept. 17, when he spoke in Schiller Park in German Village to a crowd of about 4,500. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has not yet visited OSU’s campus, but he was in Columbus Sept. 26 at Westerville South High School, where he

OSU plans to buy energy from wind farm michael burwell Lantern reporter burwell.37@osu.edu Ohio State took a step toward purchasing enough wind energy to power 25 percent of campus’ electricity needs. The university announced Oct. 1 that it signed a letter of intent with Iberdrola Renewables to purchase 50 megawatts of wind energy capacity. According to Clean Energy Authority, a website that provides energy information, one megawatt hour is about equivalent to the amount of electricity used by about 330 homes in one hour. Richard Potter, senior energy adviser of the Office of Energy and Environment, said the cost of the agreement was not yet available, but that the money to pay for it would come from a “utility fund that’s part of our operating budget.� Potter said the contract should be finalized by Oct. 22, and the university should start receiving energy by mid November. “Once the contract is done, it takes a few weeks to what they call ‘schedule the wind into the market,’ and we want to have the wind by November,� Potter said. For the next 20 years, OSU is expected to receive energy from the

OSU plans to buy enough wind energy to power 25 percent of campus’ electricity needs. Blue Creek Wind Farm, located in Van Wert and Paulding counties, in Ohio, according to a university press release. The counties are more than two hours away from campus. Iberdrola Renewables, headquartered in Portland, Ore., is the U.S. renewable energy division of parent company IBERDROLA, S.A., according to a press release. IBERDROLA, S.A. is the largest renewable asset

base of any company in the world. Gina Langen, spokeswoman for OSU’s Office of Energy and Environment, said this was a “direct buy� of energy from the wind farm, which was different because usually the biggest purchasers are utility companies. “From a wind farm, oftentimes the biggest purchasers are energy companies where they will purchase it and send it on,� Langen said. “In

this case, we are the largest direct non-utility purchaser, from our research. No other entity, no other university, has bought this large of a purchase of wind energy that didn’t first go to a utility.� Potter said the university will switch from American Electric Power Ohio to AEP Energy in September, which will help save an estimated $7 million over the next two years, and those savings will help pay for the wind energy. AEP Ohio and AEP Energy declined to comment specifically about OSU’s switch and savings, but Melissa McHenry, an AEP Energy spokeswoman, said the company was pleased about the switch. The wind energy will be delivered from Iberdrola Renewables and the Blue Creek Wind Farm to AEP Energy, which will then supply the power to OSU, Potter said. He also said the power from AEP Energy will be the combination of the wind energy and the regular market energy. Kevin Helmich, director of origination for the Midwest and Northeast regions of Iberdrola Renewables, said the agreement with OSU is “really significant� for the company. “To have a university step

Hackers release personal info of 600 in OSU College of Dentistry Ben Keith Lantern reporter keith.146@osu.edu Hackers stole the names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and passwords of more than 600 Ohio State College of Dentistry affiliates in a recent data breach, and Oct. 1, that information was released on the Internet. At least one person whose information was exposed was not informed of the breach. “This is the first I’ve heard of it,” said Robert Uhle, assistant professor at the College of Dentistry. University spokesman Jim Lynch said in an email that Ohio law only requires data breach notification if the compromised data could lead to identity theft, and the data taken in this incident didn’t pose that threat. “For Ohio State, the information accessed was five-yearold, non-restricted data from the College of Dentistry,” Lynch

wrote. “This vulnerability was addressed within less than one half-hour after we noticed suspicious server activity, and thankfully no restricted data was taken from the system.” OSU was one of more than universities attacked by TeamGhostShell. In a statement posted on Pastebin.com, TeamGhostShell said that the purpose of the hack was to “raise awareness towards the changes made in today’s education.” The hackers also released details of 245 financial transactions at the College of Dentistry, but the released data did not include credit card numbers or other personally identifying information. In their statement, TeamGhostShell said that they deliberately kept the leaked information to a minimum. According to TeamGhostShell, more than 120,000 individual accounts and records were posted as a result of the hack. OSU is investigating the incident, and has removed the hacked server from service.

OSU considers 100% tobacco ban Brandon Klein Lantern reporter klein.340@osu.edu Students, staff and faculty who are smokers at Ohio State might have to put away their cigarettes and lighters, as the university is considering moving to a 100 percent tobacco-free environment. “Our goal is to become the healthiest university on the globe,” said Bernadette Melnyk, the dean of the College of Nursing, in an email. “It will improve everyone’s health and wellness. Smoking is the leading cause of preventable morbidity and mortality in the U.S.” Tobacco use would be prohibited anywhere on university property including extension offices and regional campuses, she said but added that off-campus areas would not be affected. “Smoke-free policies and norms reduce the initiation, prevalence and intensity of smoking in young adults,” she said. Faculty and staff would also have to comply with the new policy if accepted, Melnyk said. “Workplace smoking bans reduce the prevalence of smoking and daily cigarette consumption,” she said. Support was generated from faculty, staff and students for the university to become tobacco-free since the Wexner

Medical Center did so in 2006, according to the OSU’s tobacco-free proposal website. Recommendations for universities and colleges to go tobacco-free have also been made from the Ohio Board of Regents, the Ohio Board of Education, the State of Ohio Healthy Ohio Program and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, according to the website. While tobacco usage would be prohibited, OSU would also reduce its association with the tobacco industry, Melnyk said. “(There will be) no tobacco advertising on university property, at events or media,” she said, adding that donations, gifts or sponsorships that are associated with the tobacco industry would not be accepted, except for research. The university will be holding university-wide discussions that include three open forums on campus that are open to students, staff and faculty and a teleconference for those who are not located in Columbus, according to the website. The open forums take place in the Science and Engineering Library Room 090. The first forum is on Monday, at 10 a.m. with the second forum on Oct. 15, at 9 a.m. and the final one on Oct. 18 at 2:30 p.m. The teleconference is on Tuesday, at 1 p.m. but those wishing to participate must register on the website. Officials hope the final decision will be approved in November and December, with the implementation of the new policy

in Columbus, OSU was outgained 173 to 48 in total yards against a perceived inferior opponent in Miami (Ohio) in the first quarter. Three weeks later, against similar competition, Alabama-Birmingham jumped on the Buckeyes early in the first quarter with a 99 to 42 total yards advantage. While not outgained in the first quarter of its two other home games before Saturday, OSU struggled to stick a dagger in Central Florida and California before escaping with uninspiring victories in both contests. Buckeyes fans had seen this movie before. You know, the one where their team stumbles its bloodied-self past the finish line — the kind of win that leaves more questions than answers. And that was against teams the Buckeyes were supposed to beat. What would happen to them against a Nebraska team of arguably equal talent? After the Cornhuskers’ defense had stifled sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller and Meyer’s offense early, Saturday’s seemed to have the looks of another episode of more of the same. Admittedly, Meyer called the first quarter a “train wreck.� “It was a dark day there for that first quarter,� he said. Then came the fruition of Roby’s dream. Pinned on his own 31-yard line on 3rd-and-10, Nebraska junior quarterback Taylor Martinez saw a chance to mount a drive with junior receiver Quincy Enunwa open near the Buckeyes’ sideline. Unfortunately for Martinez and the Cornhuskers, Roby saw it too — first, apparently, in his sleep and then during the game. “I saw it on film when they lined up in a certain formation, they run certain routes on certain like downs and distance,� he said. “I saw it and I kinda thought about it pre-snap. So, when I saw him run the route I just jumped it.� As quickly as he ripped the ball from its original trajectory, Roby had taken the ball 41 yards into the stadium’s north end zone for the game’s first score. The inferno of a stadium that Meyer had wanted, in part thanks to Roby, seemed to be back. “That was one of the great evenings in Columbus, in Ohio State,� Meyer said. “But I really appreciate that. I never want to let that go without telling the fans that. That was tremendous,� Meyer said. “That was, from the bottom of my heart, I want to make sure everybody knows that.� The Horseshoe arguably rocked with the same drowning noise that it had during former OSU coach Jim Tressel’s years and Roby was making interceptions in his sleep — sort of. But perhaps most of all, the 5-foot-11,

up, it’s really gratifying,� Helmich said. “It is a concrete example of Ohio State’s commitment to sustainability.� The Blue Creek Wind Farm features 152 Gamesa G90, 2.0 MW wind turbines producing a capacity of 304 megawatts, according to the Iberdrola Renewables website.

190-pound Suwanee, Ga., native had made good of his earlier talk of picking off Martinez. Roby, though, wasn’t finished yet. While his first interception of the season had put the Buckeyes up early, Nebraska had found a way to gash the OSU defense to a 17-14 lead with less than 10 minutes to play in the second quarter. Faced with a similar situation on his own 20-yard line, Martinez and Nebraska took to the air again on third down against a Buckeyes defense that was hurrying the junior to get the ball out of his hands as soon as possible. And, like before, Roby was there to intercept Martinez — this time for an 8-yard return that set up an 18-yard touchdown pass from Miller to sophomore tight end Jeff Heuerman. Up 21 to 17, OSU subsequently outscored the Cornhuskers, 42-21, en route to its second consecutive Big Ten win and sixth overall victory. Perhaps most impressive Saturday was the 63 points the Buckeyes’ offense amassed against a defense giving up an average of just 20.6 points a game. Six of those points, though, belonged to Roby. “It’s a team thing,â€? Roby said with a wide smile. “I mean, Ohio State had 63 points. That’s all that matters to me.â€? Helping put his offense into position to succeed is something he said he’s more than happy to do. “Like I said, I try to do as much as I can in any way that I can to help my team. I want us to win every game so, I felt like, I play good and I make plays then we’re gonna win,â€? Roby said. While Roby’s interceptions were the first for him this year, Miller said the cornerback is used to making plays. “Man, he does it all the time in practice. But finally he brung it to the field and big plays like that, you gotta score after that,â€? he said. “So he brings a lot of excitement to the offense.â€? It might be the kind of excitement that has Roby using his newfound calling as an oracle to predict an undefeated season for the Buckeyes. “We’re trying to go 12-0. Win every single game,â€? he said. “We’re trying to get that AP No. 1 and we’re gonna win a national championship. That’s our goal.â€? Roby said the climb for such a feat is just like Meyer described as “pushing a ball up a hill.â€? “You’re pushing the ball up the hill, you’re pushing the ball up the hill. At first you can’t really see much. It’s cloudy, you can’t really see. But you break through it and you see the sun,â€? Roby said, “and you’re almost there, almost there, keep pushing, keep pushing. I feel like ‌ that was a component tonight. “We saw it, we saw the sun. And we just kept pushing and now we’re going downhill. There’s nothing stopping us.â€?

they’re doing but also help them get on their way with the Buckeye Blitz this weekend,� Craig Romney said in an exclusive interview with The Lantern. Craig Romney said Ohio and the youth vote is critical for this election and that they’ve seen a swing of support among younger voters for his father. “They see this tremendous deficit that’s been left by this president and I think they understand that’s going to be our generation’s burden to pay that debt,� Craig Romney said. The first presidential debate was held Wednesday evening at the University of Denver in Colorado, a swing state, and many analysts declared Romney the winner. Results of the latest Gallup poll place Romney within three points of Obama, 49-46. Danielle Seamon and Todd Avery contributed to this story

commitment to sustainability and to the economic future of our state,� said OSU President E. Gordon Gee in the release. In addition to receiving renewable wind energy, different research opportunities are available for OSU with the agreement. Potter said the most significant is electricity market research because they will have access to real time, up-to-the-second wind production data that researchers aren’t generally entitled to. “We may find out wind doesn’t have any effect or we may find out wind has a grand effect,� Potter said. “It will be unique research.�

The third annual BeardCon convention took place Saturday at the Greater Columbus Convention Center from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. And those who got the memo were in for a treat. The nearly 35 vendors were out in full force, peddling old classics and new styles. Stick-on and temporary tattoo mustaches were accompanied by mustache-shaped soaps and suckers, T-shirts, trucker hats, facial hair styling products, mustache and beardthemed accessories such as wallets and, my personal favorite, “The Beerd Koozie,” to keep cans cold in hairy style. Taking a close second was a new one for me: a fantastic yarn beard for my face. A great find for the lady who wants a warm face, but not the hassle of extra testosterone and masculine characteristics. It also doubles as a Halloween accessory because, well, you never know when a beard is needed until it’s needed. Beard and mustache clubs and societies were well represented from cities throughout the East and Midwest, such as Philadelphia, Rochester, N.Y. and Nashville, as well as Canada. And the facial hair was all over the place. Styled and curled, long, short, pencil thin, thick and groomed, on the young and old and in nearly every natural color. Fans of facial hair have gained public momentum from the reality series “Whisker Wars,” an Independent Film Channel original that follows team competitors as they vie for a chance at the prestigious World Championship Competition in Norway. Season 2 premieres Nov. 23 at 10 p.m., just in time to celebrate November as National Beard Month. Beard competitions consist of individuals going head-to-head or competing as teams. Team competitors enter under the name of their respected clubs and societies, and clash with other clubs and societies. Club entries advance as a whole, with bragging rights for

membership, and individuals advance on a per person basis. Grandma here isn’t rock ‘n’ roll enough to have stayed late enough for the results of the competition, but I have a prediction: the beautifully curled, ginger-hued full-beard probably came out a winner. I don’t know how much time he spent on producing such perfect curls, but a teenage homecoming queen probably has nothing on a full ginger beard in curlers. Dress was 1860s dapper sheik or rock ‘n’ roll handsome, complete with felt top hats and derbies to match styled and groomed beards and mustaches. Throughout the afternoon were discussion panels on such topics as social hair club history and benefits, how to start a beard club and marketing and merchandising in the beard industry. Although facial hair is often thought of as an adult feature, children were included in the convention with games offering mustache and beard-themed prizes and even a kids’ and women’s beard and mustache competition. The official name of the artificial bearded ladies is “Whiskerinas.” These clubs and societies are full of fanatic ladies that appreciate a beard and mustache so much they create them artistically out of yarn, paper and just about any other fabric imaginable. The kids’ face-off worked the same way, because a boy that can grow a beard isn’t a boy — he’s a man. The highlight of the evening, however, was the face-off beard and mustache competition, with nine adult categories, trophies for winners and bragging rights for title-holders. Categories included most realistic fake beard, most fantastic fake beard, styled mustache, styled partial beard, styled full beard, natural mustache, natural partial beard, natural full beard and, with the most competitors, the groomed full beard. According to a Chinese auction representative, the convention was estimated to bring in 1,000 to 1,500 people with a few hundred actually competing for hairy titles. The admission charge of $15.00 was donated to Central Ohio Men Against Prostate Cancer. BeardCon is staying true to its facial follicles by donating to a cause as specific to men as a full, natural beard. Not that the ladies can’t compete for bearded recognition.

‘Beauty and the Beast’ is scheduled to run Oct. 9-14 at the Palace Theatre.

Once upon a time, a young woman met a prince trapped under a spell in the body of a beast. And after learning to love, the couple lived happily ever after. Now they will start that love story all over again in Columbus. The musical “Beauty and the Beast” is scheduled to be performed Tuesday through Sunday at Palace Theatre. Based on the 1991 Disney film “Beauty and the Beast,” the musical ran on Broadway from

1994 to 2007, and it has also been performed to more than 35 million people nationwide and in 13 different countries, according to the tour’s website. The original creators, including director Rob Roth and choreographer Matt West, have reunited since the stage musical opened on Broadway to revise that version. However the revised show, brought to Columbus through theater production company NETworks Presentations LLC, is slightly different than the original Broadway production. “There are a few revisions,” said James May, the actor who plays Cogsworth. “There are a couple of

songs that the original production cut, and one song is one of the most popular songs of the show.” May said this new production helps the story-telling process. “There were a few scenes that we didn’t think propel the story forward, so we cut them out or revised (them),” May said. “We wanted to make the story a little bit faster because in any story you want to keep the story moving.” May also said, unlike the original Broadway play, the revised production of “Beauty and the Beast” is not a direct adaptation of the Disney movie.

HAILEY KIM Lantern reporter kim.3712@osu.edu Some artists might consider loneliness the best musical companion. But Two Door Cinema Club and Friends consider otherwise. For these Northern Irish and Brooklyn bands, respectively, friends push them to be better artists. Indie rock band Two Door Cinema Club and Friends are scheduled to perform at 6 p.m. Monday at Newport Music Hall. Formed in 2007, the three members of Two Door Cinema Club met in high school. Since then it has toured worldwide from the U.K. to Ireland, Canada, Australia, Chile, Portugal and the U.S., to name a few stops. It has also appeared in BBC’s Sound of 2010 poll, which is an annual poll by BBC tastemakers who list promising new talent. Kevin Baird, bassist and back up vocalist, said the close relationship among band members is an advantage. “There is much more honesty,” Baird said. “We have known each other since we were like 14 years old, so we can easily express our thoughts and not worry (who’s) gonna be laughing at you. We can be creative together.” While most rock bands have a drummer, Two Door Cinema Club goes without. Baird said the band has no plans to add another member to the band either, which is comprised of Baird, Alex Trimble on lead vocals and guitar and Sam Halliday on guitar and vocals.

“We, just three of us, have worked well,” Baird said. “We are super comfortable with writing together and I want to write music with someone who I grew up with and had the same history (as).” Baird also said the experiences the bandmates have shared influence their music. Unlike the band’s first album “Tourist History,” which centered on selfmotivating music, Baird said the band’s second album, “Beacon,” released in the U.S. Sept. 4, features a lot of love songs. Despite the change of mood in its music, Baird said Two Door Cinema Club’s passion remains. “When we were 15 years old — unlike other kids, we didn’t want to go to college — we wanted to (form) an energetic live band,” Baird said. “Those thoughts and feelings have never changed.” Samantha Urbani, vocalist for Friends, said her band, slated to open for Two Door Cinema Club, is also full of energy. “We play crazy and experimental pop,” Urbani said. “We are very excitable.” Like its name suggests, the band consists of friends, but it also has a second meaning. “The word ‘friends’ signifies the live show,” Urbani said. “During the live show, there should be no hierarchy between the band and the audience, and everybody should engage with each other. It doesn’t matter who’s on

Two Door Cinema Club is slated to perform Oct. 8 at Newport Music Hall. stage, who’s on the floor. Everybody is on the same level and then we can have fun.” Urbani also said Friends is looking to provide more than fun to its fans. “We are a revolutionary pop band,” Urbani said. “We are talking about some serious issues and inspirational things, we want to touch people while we play.” She said the band most specifically wants to inspire a younger crowd, which Two Door Cinema Club regularly attracts. “So many young crowds come to Two Door’s concerts,” Urbani said. “I love to have a chance to teach and inspire a young audience.”

Brianne Pliske, a first-year in fashion and dance, said she listens to Two Door Cinema Club’s music often. Pliske said she likes the band’s music because its songs have morals and stories. “I think maybe they are able to make good music because of their relationships,” Pliske said of the band members. “I think if you are close with your friends, you can put together ideas better and you can kind of branch off each others’ ideas better than just having random people.” Tickets for the show are $25 for general admission or $23 for advance purchase through Ticketmaster.

Featuring.... - Corey Brown’s explosive punt return - New tone for Buckeyes’ offense - Another big game for Carlos Hyde v. Nebraska - Homecoming festivities recap

Meyer pleased with OSU’s offensive growth MICHAEL PERIATT Managing editor for content periatt.1@osu.edu Ohio State (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten) scored so many points Saturday that coach Urban Meyer lost track. He came into the locker room after the game and, amid the victory celebration, had to ask the team how many points they ended up with. “(Meyer) didn’t even know what we put up. He was like, ‘How many points did we put up again?’” sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller said. The answer was 63 — nine touchdowns — against a Nebraska defense that coming into the game had given up an average of 21 points per game. It was the highest point outburst since OSU dropped 73 points against Eastern Michigan in 2010. Nebraska is no MAC team, though. Traditionally a defense-first squad, the Cornhuskers came into the game ranked as the No. 21 team in the country whose only loss came against a ranked UCLA team on the road. Meyer brushed off his forgetfulness after the game.

“Braxton said that?” Meyer asked, laughing. “No comment. Just got caught up in the moment, caught up in the moment.” That moment might have been significant. With the win the Buckeyes moved up to No. 8 in the Associated Press poll and became the only remaining undefeated team in the Big Ten. The Buckeyes, which were seen by many as a team in the middle of a rebuilding process under a first-year coach, are now the team to beat in the Big Ten, as no other team is ranked in the conference. It’s a distinction that didn’t always seem likely. Meyer inherited a team that didn’t have the type of players to fit his typical spread offensive system, and many considered the Buckeyes at least a year away from being competitive on a national level. Despite winning its first four games, OSU — which was heavily favored — struggled at times against Central Florida, California and Alabama-Birmingham, causing concern from players and coaches. Every week during the three-game span, Meyer opened up his postgame press conference saying he was pleased with the

Brown ignites inferno for Urban Meyer ANDREW HOLLERAN Photo editor holleran.9@osu.edu

Maybe Corey “Philly” Brown just needed his coach’s permission. Three days after Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said — only half kidding — that the junior wide receiver is “allowed to make a guy miss,” Brown answered Meyer’s call with one of the biggest plays in Ohio State’s biggest victory of the 2012 season. Brown returned a punt 76 yards for a touchdown roughly five minutes into the third quarter, putting OSU up, 49-31, against Nebraska Saturday night at Ohio Stadium. The highlight-reel worthy play all but sealed the now-No. 8-ranked Buckeyes’ 63-38 win against the then-No. 21-ranked Huskers. At the same time, the touchdown showcased the skills Meyer has wanted to see from his should-be playmaker all season. “The thing I’m looking for from Philly is, we need some explosiveness in this offense,” Meyer said last Wednesday. After going down on contact and failing to run past defenses through five games, Brown said he was pleased with the “explosiveness” he displayed during the return. He deferred credit to his teammates after the game, though. “Basically they made the perfect blocking and made it easy for me,” Brown said. “The blocking was so good all I saw was me and the punter. I knew I had to make just one person miss and change the game.” Brown said he knew he had to make a play as he jogged onto the field and prepared himself for the return. Not just because Meyer had been imploring him to, but due to the way the game had been hanging in the balance. OSU was up 11 points at the time, but the Buckeyes had not yet had a lead bigger than two scores. Nebraska’s offense — after scoring with relative ease through two-and-a-half quarters — just had its first three-and-out possession of the second half. Brown said he saw an opportunity to change the way the game was flowing, as did his coaches. “Going out there, I knew I had to make a play. (OSU running backs coach Stan Drayton) was in my ear, he was in my face, telling me I had to change the game,” Brown said.

studentvoice Obama’s OSU stop to add to record of student support Sara valentine For The Lantern valentine.205@osu.edu Sara Valentine is a registered Democrat and a fall Fellow Intern for the Obama Campaign. By now you’ve heard that President Barack Obama will be visiting Ohio State Tuesday, but do you know what he’s done for students like me and you over the last four years? Any idea how his vision for the next four years impacts us? You might think that the election this November won’t affect you. You might think that it will be business as usual regardless of who wins. Well, let me debunk that right now. From what we know about Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s plan, it would make deep spending cuts across board, including cuts that would devastate Ohio students. Obama has a record of fighting for us. He has taken historic steps to make college more affordable for middle-class families. He doubled the value of Pell Grant scholarships so that nearly 10 million students would receive college scholarship aid. He removed big banks as middlemen in the student-lending industry and extended college tax credits to Ohio families. In Ohio, 349,000 students and families received a college tax credit to help cover the cost of tuition, fees and books. And the president fought hard to keep interest rates low on

federal student loans. He also capped federal student loan payments at 10 percent of monthly income, which, starting as soon as this year, will help more than 1.6 million students manage their monthly payments. And he made sure that we could get affordable health care by allowing us to stay on our parent’s insurance until 26 years old. This is how our president is fighting for us. He will continue this progress and more in his second term. The Romney-Ryan plan would eliminate Obama’s college tax credit, making college out of reach for some middle-class families. Under the Romney-Ryan budget, more than 356,000 Ohio students who rely on Pell grants would see their scholarships cut, and 5,390 work-study positions for Ohio students would be eliminated. Where would these funds go instead of helping us? Under the Romney-Ryan plan? They would go to millionaires in the form of tax cuts. Obama understands what we face when we graduate, especially when it comes to paying off college loans. Both the president and the first lady said they just paid off their own loans eight years ago. That’s why the president reformed federal student loans and is making it easier for us to pay back ours. He wants you to have the same pathway to opportunity he and the first lady had. Obama understands that for some students, the cost of school is the deciding factor whether to stay in class or drop out. The Romney-Ryan plan would put the future of so many Ohio students in jeopardy. It’s not too late to get involved, to register to vote and to make your voice heard. You have the power to choose which direction we go, so

Clinton really to blame for financial crisis lantern Columnist

Andrew Holleran / Photo editor

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney speaks in Powell, Ohio, Aug. 25.

Patrick Seaworth identifies as a Republican.

The financial crisis we are emerging from nearly crippled this country. It also largely contributed patrick seaworth to the United seaworth.1@osu.edu States’ more than $16 trillion debt. So the questions become: What does that number mean, how did we end up in this mess and who is to blame? First, what is $16 trillion? According to the Congressional Research Service, a non-partisan government research branch assigned to Congress, the cost of all American wars including estimates through 2011 are less than $6.48 trillion 2011 dollars. In other words, our Independence, the Civil War, defeating Adolf Hitler and Japan in World

War II ($4.1 trillion), the Cold War and bringing Osama Bin Laden to justice amounts to roughly two-fifths of our current debt. So how did we get here and who’s to blame? Former President George W. Bush was in office when the financial crisis took place, yet the roots of this conundrum lie with a different president, Bill Clinton. The failure to avoid the crisis stems from the Democrats’ resistance to the efforts Bush put forth to reverse the crisis. In 1999, Clinton repealed the Banking Act of 1933, commonly referred to as the Glass–Steagall Act. One of the main tenants of the act was that it clearly separated investment banking from commercial banking. Clinton said the act was “no longer relevant,” in 1998, as he pushed for the deregulation of banking. On the 10th anniversary of the repeal, The New York Times quoted the words of one of the few opposing voices at the time, Senator Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.). “We have now decided in the name of modernization to forget the lessons of the past, of safety and of soundness,” Dorgan said in the article. The New York Times reported in September 1999, “Fannie Mae has been under increasing pressure from the Clinton Administration to expand mortgage loans

among low and moderate income people … (Fannie Mae) may run into trouble in an economic downturn, prompting a government rescue.” It was this pressure that largely contributed to the mortgage crisis of 2008. So what about Republican failures? During the 50 years prior to President Barack Obama, as reported by the public policy publication “National Affairs,” “the greatest growth in regulation came under President’s Richard Nixon and George W. Bush.” The White House’s own archives show Bush’s initial, formally issued concerns with Clinton’s practices in his projected 2002 budget, which, “declares that the size of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (GSE’s) is, ‘a potential problem’ … which could cause strong repercussions in financial markets.” We have been told that we were taken into this financial dark hole by Bush. Yet history tends to disagree. “The oldest propaganda technique is to repeat a lie emphatically and often until it is taken for the truth,” said James Rickard, financial analyst and military consultant on financial warfare and author of “Currency Wars.” “In fact, the financial crisis might not have happened at all but for the 1999 repeal of the Glass-Steagall law.”

sports Meyer from 1B win, and then delved into his team’s inadequacies and shortcomings. “It’s glaringly obvious we’ve got to get a lot better or we won’t win next week,” Meyer said after his team’s 29-15 win against UAB. But after beating Nebraska and Michigan State in consecutive weeks, the mood has changed. Meyer has given his team glowing reviews in each of the past two weeks and said the team — and especially the offense — is further along than he thought they’d be. “Being as honest as I can, they weren’t very good,” Meyer said Saturday. “They didn’t look the way we wanted them to look in January … And even early in the season I didn’t feel it. I didn’t feel us change the line of scrimmage against those early teams. I’m starting to feel us change the line of scrimmage … They’re changing the line of scrimmage against some very good defensive lines. The last two we played, those are very good defensive lines.” The last two wins have come in completely different fashions. Last week, in Meyer’s first Big Ten conference game against Michigan State, the Buckeyes won a physical, 17-16 game where points were scarce. Those hard-fought grind-it-out games are what

the Big Ten is known for, but Meyer made it clear afterward that he’s not one to fit into stereotypes. “I like 70 (points) every once in a while,” Meyer said. They came close Saturday. After mounting just 17 yards in what Meyer said was a “train wreck” of a first quarter, the Buckeyes exploded for 482 yards of offense and 56 points in the next three quarters to win the game 63-38. Junior running back Carlos Hyde ran for 140 yards and four scores, and Miller broke his own single-game rushing record for a quarterback with 186 yards of his own. At the end of the day, OSU totaled 371 yards on the ground. “We’re kind of a pound-ya offense right now,” Meyer said. “I don’t mind that. I’ve not had a lot of those. But that’s a pound-ya offense.” The X’s and O’s are not what Meyer said is important, though. Meyer said this team has come together in a way he’s only seen six or seven times in his 26 years of coaching. That cohesiveness has changed big dreams into big expectations. “We’re trying to go 12-0, win every single game,” said redshirt sophomore cornerback Bradley Roby, who had two interceptions against Nebraska. “Trying to get that AP No. 1, go and win the national championship. That’s our goal.” OSU is slated to play Indiana next Saturday in Bloomington, Ind. at 8 p.m.

Brown from 1B After the game, Meyer and many other OSU players claimed Brown’s return, along with the interception sophomore cornerback Bradley Roby returned for a touchdown in the first quarter, were the plays of the day. “We do a ceremony after the game (and) let some guys talk who performed well, and every one of them to a man said that,” Meyer said of the praise Brown received from his teammates. Brown’s performance Saturday night didn’t just include the special teams touchdown. He had three catches for 35 yards and was the only Buckeyes wide receiver with a reception. On OSU sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller’s 72-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, it was a block from Brown that sprung the OSU sophomore quarterback. “Philly Brown probably turned (the game around),” Miller said. Yet again though, Brown gave credit to his teammates before accepting any praise of his own. “We had a couple punts leading up to (Miller’s run), and having someone like Braxton to excite the crowd — because the crowd kind of got out of it and everything — having someone like Braxton to be able to make a play like that, (to) get us into the game, being able to score was good,” Brown said. While Brown has trouble accepting praise from the media, he will gladly accept praise from his head coach with a smile. “It’s always good to be one of (Meyer’s) guys,” Brown said. “He told me he loved me, I told him I love him, I appreciate him. He’s turning most of the wide receivers’ careers around, basically.” Brown has been arguably the most consistent wide receiver on OSU’s roster. He has 35 catches on the season, the most on the team. The junior said he’s grown tremendously since the start of the season and that he is “learning now” every day. Still, Brown said he knows there is plenty of room to improve, with Meyer’s call for more broken tackles near the top of his things to do list. “I’ve just got to get better using my vision, speed and obviously, like (Meyer) said, break some tackles,” Brown said.

&

After posting his second memorable performance against Nebraska in as many seasons, junior Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde had a simple explanation for his success against the Cornhuskers. “I wore my lucky pants,” Hyde said after OSU’s 63-38 Saturday win. Consistency from Hyde during OSU’s first two conference wins has earned him a prominent role in the Buckeyes’ offense, as well as the trust of his coaches and teammates. Surely, Buckeye Nation was glad for Hyde’s role in the team after a dismal offensive start to Saturday’s game. OSU’s performance early in Saturday’s game was a “train wreck,” first-year OSU coach Urban Meyer said. The Buckeyes (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten) amassed just 17 yards of total offense in the first quarter against the Cornhuskers (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten). Nebraska scored on three consecutive possessions to take a 17-7 lead in the second quarter — OSU’s lone score came on a 41-yard interception return by OSU sophomore cornerback Bradley Roby. Hyde kept OSU afloat, and the record Ohio Stadium crowd of 106,102 cheering. The offense finished the contest with 498 total yards of offense and seven touchdowns — Hyde accounted for 140 yards and four touchdowns by himself. Even when it looked like Hyde’s luck had run out after a fourth-quarter fumble, Meyer stuck with the back. Hyde rewarded his coach’s trust when he scored his fourth touchdown of the night with less than one minute to play in the game. Saturday was Hyde’s second productive game against Nebraska in two seasons, having rushed for 104 yards and two scores during the teams’ Oct. 8, 2011, meeting. Hyde fumbled once on Saturday, but that was a footnote

to an otherwise strong outing. Hyde said he had gained the trust of his teammates and coaches by that point in the game. “They just told me, ‘Don’t get down on yourself.’ You know, it happens. It’s football,” Hyde said. “You just can’t get down about it … The next series, (the coaches) were like, ‘We’re going to run the same play and we’re going to give you the ball, so just keep going.” Meyer’s confidence in the player stemmed from OSU’s 17-16 win against Michigan State one week prior. On that drive, Hyde barged through MSU’s defensive line to help the Buckeyes bleed out the clock and win the game. Meyer said Hyde had earned his carries through hard work, adding that he wanted to pound the ball with Hyde to help pull the Buckeyes out of their early-game slump. “We wanted to rely on Carlos Hyde a little bit, to pound him the way I felt he earned it,” Meyer said. “I made that comment after what I saw in that last drive against Michigan State; that maybe we can pound the ball for five, six, seven yards.” Hyde averaged five yards per carry by the end of Saturday’s game. He wasn’t dismayed by OSU’s slow start on either. “Even though we started off slow, you know, we just told Big Ten Freshman each other, ‘Just stay focused, man. There’s stillofathe lotYear of ball to be played in this game,’” Hyde said. “’Don’t get down.’ Big Ten Tournament Most I know Outstanding Playerand there we started off slow but we just stayed together wasn’t no stopping us.” That attitude might be the factor that has Meyer looking favorably on the running back. “Carlos Hyde is a guy that is starting to earn a lot of respect,” Meyer said. Hyde and OSU are scheduled to play against the Indiana Hoosiers Saturday at 8 p.m. in Bloomington, Ind. The Hoosiers (2-3, 0-2 Big Ten) are coming off a 31-27 Saturday loss to Michigan State.

Braxton Miller, TBDBITL, Homecoming Bluem: OSU ‘out of the conference picture’ court take center stage at Ohio Stadium ALLY MAROTTI Editor-in-chief marotti.5@osu.edu The score just wouldn’t stop rising. Ohio State’s Saturday night 63-38 win against Nebraska was a night of broken records. The Homecoming game attracted the largest crowd ever in Ohio Stadium, and the noise that crowd made may have been a catalyst for some of OSU’s players as they chalked up their highest output in a Big Ten game since a 1983 game against Minnesota. The audience wouldn’t settle down even during halftime, when the band performed a video gamethemed show. But before the game even started, the Homecoming king and queen were crowned, and they went home $1,000 richer. “I could hear them” Saturday night’s attendance breached the record for the 90-year-old Ohio Stadium with 106,102 people. Sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller said he thought the noise from the fans helped silence the Cornhuskers offense. “Man, the fans were electric,” Miller said. “That’s what I think what was bothering on the offense for Nebraska a little bit. I could hear them, definitely.” The crowd seemed to have an opposite effect on Miller, who set a new OSU single-game quarterback rushing record with 186 yards in the game. He also threw 127 yards on 7-of-14 pass attempts. First-year coach Urban Meyer said he appreciated the fan support, even before the game began. “I want to give a lot of thanks to our crowd, the Buckeye Walk, the Skull Session. That was one of the great evenings in Columbus, in Ohio State,” Meyer said. “That was tremendous.” “When there fireworks in the show, you know it’s a good one” The crowd that Miller said helped shuck Nebraska’s offense didn’t let up at halftime. Ohio State’s Marching Band performed a video game-themed show, forming shapes and iconic figures from classic video games. Starting as “Space Invaders,” the band seamlessly shifted from game to game, playing “Tetris” for the crowd

Monday October 8, 2012

and becoming Link’s galloping horse from “The Legend of Zelda.” When two people came out dressed as Mario and Luigi to storm Mario’s castle that the band had formed, fireworks erupted at the back of the field. Sousaphone player Matt Reed said the show, which also included tunes and formations from “Halo,” “Pacman,” and other Nintendo music, has been one of his favorites in his three years with the band. “When there fireworks in the show, you know it’s a good one,” he said. “It was definitely one of my top favorite shows.” As the audience recognized each shape, the stadium seemingly shook with applause. “It was definitely a great atmosphere,” he said. “I think the best part of this show was just knowing when we were about to hit a formation and being able to hear the crowd’s excitement when we would hit the Pikachu or horse formation and being able to feed off that energy that they were shelling out for us.” Checks, Rings, Crowns Homecoming King Anooj Bhandari knew when he was still in high school that it would be an honor to reign over the Homecoming court. So last year, when the third-year in public affairs knew he would have enough credits to graduate early and apply for the court, he signed up, and along with 25 others, he was selected to be on this year’s Homecoming court. “To be honest, what made me stand out above everybody else, I honestly have no idea,” Bhandari said. “I was totally not expecting it.” He said the other candidates were all “really, really great,” so great, in fact, that they helped guide him when he was announced king. “I had missed part of our rehearsal for the day because I was at a midterm, so when they announced my name, I had no idea what to do,” he said. Bhandari said he and the queen, Aliza Bruchs, a fourth-year in marketing, were given class rings, $1,000 checks from the Alumni Association, and of course, crowns. Bruchs said the court got to watch the game from a suite and said it was humbling being crowned queen in front of such a large crowd. “It was an incredible experience,” she said. “We didn’t even know until the end of the game about the record-breaking crowd and then to hear that was icing on the cake.”

EVAN SPEYER Senior Lantern reporter speyer.10@osu.edu

Ohio State men’s soccer came up short in a game coach John Bluem called a “must win,” and the players heard about it after the match. OSU fell to Michigan State, 2-1, on Sunday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The loss drops OSU to 4-7-1 on the season, and 0-3 in Big Ten play. The loss effectively erased OSU from Big Ten Conference title contention, Bluem said. “We’re out of the conference picture completely,” Bluem said. “(We have) no chance.” The Buckeyes returned home for their contest with the Spartans a week after losing a 3-2 heartbreaker in the final seconds of overtime at Michigan. Bluem said that he was “extremely disappointed” with his team’s effort in its first game in a week. “It’s a group of players that’s just failing to realize what it takes,” Bluem said. “Nobody wants to work hard. We have guys that just make silly mistakes. To me, they don’t care.” OSU played with purpose in the first half and was clearly the more aggressive side. The Buckeyes outshot MSU, 10-4, and held a 5-0 advantage on corner kicks. They could not, however, find the back of the net. Then everything unraveled at the seams for the Buckeyes midway through the second half, as MSU scored twice in a matter of minutes. “After halftime, we just lost it completely,” Bluem said. “They gave up out there.” OSU was able to score in

Michigan State redshirt junior midfielder Cory Henderson (left) slides in for a tackle on OSU senior midfielder Austin McAnena (right) during an Oct. 7 game at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU lost, 2-1. the 81st minute, when sophomore midfielder Yianni Sarris hammered home a volley for his first goal of the season. “It is obviously a good feeling to score a goal, especially my first one here at Ohio State,” Sarris said. “I wish I could have found it sooner or that it started a comeback today.” The score seemed to give OSU a much-needed spark, but despite several attempts to find an equalizer, it was too little, too late for the Buckeyes. “It’s really unfortunate,” senior midfielder Austin McAnena said. “We need to concentrate for all 90 minutes, I think that was the problem today.” McAnena said, however, that the team didn’t lack motivation, as his coach suggested. “I think we are all motivated to play,” McAnena said. “We love to come out here and play. We want to work hard and win every

game. So maybe it just didn’t pan out like we wanted it to.” With his senior season coming to a close, and a conference championship seemingly out of reach, McAnena said he still has something play for. “We just have to turn it around,” McAnena said. “Win the next three games in the Big Ten, that’s what we have to look forward to.” With a chance at Big Ten success fading away, Bluem said his players be fighting for wins and the opportunity to remain on the team. “If they don’t want to do the things that’s required to play on a team like this,” Bluem said, “then we are going to get rid of them and we are going to find new players.” OSU is scheduled to take a break from conference play this Wednesday night when they host Bowling Green.
