When Baker Hall East resident Carol Fragoso’s roommate woke up to get a drink of water at about 5 a.m. on Jan. 26, she noticed the door to her dorm room was slightly ajar, even though she and her roommate had closed it earlier that night. “She didn’t think anything of it. She just figured that someone had peeked in, one of our friends did or something,� said Fragoso, a first-year in business. “In the morning, she noticed that her money ($200) was missing.� Fragoso said she usually locks the door at night, but they had “just forgotten about it� that night. Although at the time, Fragoso said her roommate thought the money had been misplaced, later that day, their resident adviser informed residents that a theft had occurred in the building overnight. Fragoso did not notice her missing belongings until after the floor meeting. Fragoso and her roommate’s things were among a total of $4,550 worth of items that were taken from three dorm rooms and six people at about 4 a.m. that morning, said Ohio State Police Deputy Chief Richard Morman. “Some people were sharing their stories and some guy said that his laptop got stolen, his MacBook. And I was like, ‘Wow, that’s crazy, I wonder why he didn’t steal mine.’ And then I go

Items that were stolen from other rooms included $59 in cash, two MacBook laptops, an iPhone, an iPod touch, a Panasonic digital camera and two wallets with IDs, gift cards, debit cards and a room key inside, according to the police reports. There is a suspect in the case: a non-OSU

OSU football bucks dwindling football attendance trend Alex Newman grew up in southern Ohio and had parents who never wavered in their support of Ohio State football. He learned early to support the men wearing scarlet and gray. “It’s a tradition,� said Newman, a fourth-year in animal sciences. “People in Ohio grow up cheering for the Buckeyes. We all love the football team, and some of us even come to school here because of it.� That tradition, many say, is what keeps OSU football strong in a year when interest in college football seems to be waning. According to a study from, attendance for college football games featuring teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision conferences hit a nine-year low in 2012. Average attendance per game fell by more than 1,000 people from 2007. Television ratings for college football games fell by nearly 4 percent on ESPN and by more than 10 percent on CBS, according to the report. But OSU saw more fans at its home field in the 2012 season than it did in 2011. The number of fans in attendance at Ohio Stadium on Saturdays hasn’t fallen below 104,000 in the last 10 years. Even during the 2011 season, when the Buckeyes lost their starting quarterback before the season and finished with a losing 6-7 record, average attendance at home games only decreased by about 50 people per game from 2010, according to the OSU athletic department. Television ratings were less stable. The two OSU football games broadcast on ESPN in 2012 averaged almost 2.5 million viewers, while the three games the sports network broadcast in 2011 averaged just more than 2 million viewers, said Mike Humes, an ESPN spokesman.

The number of cameras watching Ohio State is expected to double over the next few years, partially because of new software that allows for cheaper installation. Ron Balser, director of OSU security and protective services, said the way OSU approaches security it is not forced to use just one piece of equipment and isn’t “stuck with one brand.� Balser said since OSU departments and organizations purchase their own surveillance equipment, they could save up to 50 percent because of the flexibility to choose from a variety of camera brands. “Let’s say we had a seven- or eight-camera system that we probably could do for about $40,000. Easily I think we could come down to $25,000,� Balser said. OSU’s library system is one organization taking advantage of the savings to update the “backbone� of its surveillance operations, including upgrading channeling and storage units where video footage is held.

campus OSU students react to unrest in Egypt after revolution abdulrahman al-ruwaishan Lantern reporter Egypt has exploded into new unrest two years after its revolution began. Opposition groups complain there is a lack of change and blame the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic party currently in power. Alexander Thompson, an associate professor of political science, said the conflict affects the average American because Egypt’s importance in the Middle East cannot be overemphasized. “Egypt is the most populous country in the Arab world,” he said. “There’s no more important Arab country or Muslim country in the Middle East. Egypt has historically served as a mediator.” Omar Yasser Gowayed, a third-year in materials science engineering from Egypt, said he is not content with the way Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and the Brotherhood have handled their newfound power after the Arab Spring, a democratic uprising led by mostly young people. He said he doesn’t “necessarily trust the Muslim Brotherhood.” Ehab Ammar, a graduate student in biochemistry and vice president of the Egyptian Students Association, said he agreed that there were problems. But as a supporter of Morsi, he said the opposition isn’t handling their objections appropriately. “The people who do not support (Morsi) took the violent way of showing that they are not comfortable,” he said. “This is in general.” Protests in Eqypt have continued, which, according to The New York Times, has led to the death of 50 people in the last two weeks. Gowayed visited Egypt during winter break and said he participated in protests while he was there. “It’s basically a storm,” he said. “The people are already angry because there isn’t any inclusion.” Some protestors feel like the democratic ideals that were put forth when establishing the new government are being carried out under Morsi. Opposition groups withdrew themselves from writing the constitution in late 2012, and Gowayed blamed the Brotherhood for that. “They’re trying to manage everything on their own and … they’re screwing up left and right,” he said, speaking of Brotherhood politicians. Ammar said he disagreed and emphasized that Morsi was democratically elected. “The average student, in my opinion, at OSU should know that Egypt had a revolution, and after this revolution we were able to go ahead and have free, democratic elections,” he said. “We have an elected president.” Both Gowayed and Ammar said there were very daunting problems facing Egypt after the election, like widespread poverty and lack of education. Those living outside Egypt’s capital Cairo feel like they have been sidelined, Gowayed said. “Other cities feel marginalized, because everyone feels like everything is going to Cairo,” he said.

Supporters of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi rally in support for the new constitution on Dec. 11 in Cairo. There is too much of a focus on politics, Gowayed said, and not enough on solving the issues that plague Egypt. “We have people coming out of public schools illiterate, we have people who are starving, and these are all problems from the (former Egyptian leader Muhammad Hosni El Sayed) Mubarak era that need to be fixed,” Gowayed said. “We need to stop focusing on political power and who’s going to rule politically.” Mubarak was ousted from his office about two years ago. Ammar said people in the Egyptian Students Association disagree on what is best for Egypt. “When I speak politically, I represent myself,” he said. “We are not

united in terms of … whom we are supporting now. Lots of people voted against the current president. Some supported him.” Overall, Ammar said, it is important to understand that the American government should not try to interfere too much in Egypt’s internal affairs. That would, he said, benefit “both sides.” “I hope that the Americans understand that a strong Egypt, a peaceful Egypt would be better,” he said. “A strong, democratic Egypt, regardless of the fact that the American government likes it or dislikes it, is better and could be a strong ally … compared to a regime like Mubarak’s, because the situation is different. Now the people have the upper hand.”

OSU engineers will monitor airflow of new buildings daniel eddy Lantern reporter

President E. Gordon Gee (center) and other OSU faculty and alumni dig at the CBEC groundbreaking celebration at the building site between 19th Avenue and Woodruff Avenue on June 18.

The $126 million construction project for the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry Building will give engineers a new level of knowledge about the building’s airflow. When complete in late 2014, engineers will be able to monitor heat flow and airflow on every floor of the 225,000-square-foot building. If one side of the North Campus building is using more energy than the other side, engineers can brainstorm on how to correct the imbalance, said Susan Olesik, chair of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Construction for the project broke ground June 18. The early stages of the construction were preparing the utility infrastructures such as heating, cooling, hot water and electric to the buildings, said Lindsay Komlanc, spokeswoman for Ohio State’s Administration and Planning, in an email. The CBEC will be a two-building structure to enhance its energy efficiency. One building will contain laboratories and the other will be office space. “The building is going to be absolutely gorgeous,” she said. “I think it will be a Midwestern landmark in terms of quality.” The reason two buildings are more efficient is because laboratory airflow has to be one-pass air, but office airflow can be recirculated. The airflow in buildings that have both offices and laboratories cannot be recirculated. Komlanc said crews have starting installing concrete for the basement and putting up steal beams. When determining the project length, poor weather conditions are taken into account and the work is planned accordingly, she said in the email. While the completion time hasn’t been delayed, the work flow is expected to slow down in the winter.

But winter weather is not hampering OSU’s efforts in creating safety awareness around campus construction. “Because our campus is multi-modal, traffic safety efforts cover all areas of campus as well as all modes of transportation, rather than focusing only on one specific area or site.” Komlanc said in the email. OSU is trying to ensure the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists by having an ongoing education campaign that will last throughout the rest of the semester, Komlanc said in the email. Several campus accidents were reported last semester, including a September incident involving first-year student James Daniel Hughes, who was struck by a dump truck near the CBEC site. Hughes lost roughly one-third of his body, including his right leg and hip as a result of the accident. The Sept. 5 accident was preceded by an Aug. 20 incident where first-year student Rachel Stump was hit by a drunk driver, which left her in a coma for several days. The day after James Daniel Hughes’ accident, OSU student Yifan Gu was struck by a bicyclist near Chumley’s on High Street and was transported to the Wexner Medical Center with injuries. As a result of a string of pedestrian and bicycle accidents involving injuries, OSU President E. Gordon Gee formed a safety task force to come up with ways to make campus safer, including adding signs to crosswalks and banning the use of bicycles on the Oval. The ongoing education campaign will feature messages about how to follow traffic safety laws, as well as enforcing those laws, Komlanc said in the email. Jeremy Hitchens, a third-year in marketing, said he tries to be safe near construction by not listening to music while walking and being aware of this surroundings. Second-year in animal sciences Mariah Kasler said while she tries to remain aware of he surroundings, she still feels uneasy about the construction equipment around campus sometimes. “It scares me when the crane starts moving I just get a bit nervous,” she said.

Robbery from 1A earlier in the day. It is unclear whether the man was there earlier, Morman said. Hatten was unable to provide comment on the incident, but Cheryl Lyons, director of Residence Life, gave a statement in an email that The Lantern received from Student Life spokesman Dave Isaacs. “Our security system is designed so that only residents with a properly coded BuckID can access their residence hall, but unfortunate situations can arise when casual acquaintances or those who are unknown are allowed to enter. Non-residents should be escorted by their resident hosts at all times while in the building. OSU works diligently to ensure everyone’s safety, and we depend on students to help us in that effort,” Lyons said. The thief was allegedly targeting female residents when looking for unlocked doors, Morman said. “A couple people said that they heard somebody knocking on the door … The roommates were there together (and said) ‘Come in.’ The guy came in and was like, ‘Oh, is Ashley here?’ … They said no, he said, ‘Oh wrong room,’ or something like that, and it sounds like this guy somewhat fits the description of this other guy that they have as a suspect now,” Morman said. Some of the victims said they thought the perpetrator chose female rooms because it lessened his own risk. “We figured it’s probably because there’s less chance that they’re going to fight back if they woke up,” Fragoso said. She added that she thought Baker East was targeted because of the “low amount of

security” compared to buildings such as ParkStradley Hall, where each room automatically locks when the door shuts and requires the residents’ BuckIDs to get into their rooms, and Morrill Tower, where students have to swipe their BuckIDs before they can use the elevator up to the residential floors. Another theft victim said that he and his friends also forgot to lock their room’s door. “It was just one of those things that we came in and we were all sitting there hanging out and didn’t even think to lock the door,” said Christopher Korthaus, a first-year in business marketing and a Paterson Hall resident who had his wallet stolen while staying in a female friend’s room that night. Korthaus does not think that Baker East is at fault for the thief getting into the dorm. “People walk in and out of every dorm building. Anyone can really come in anywhere. It’s not just Baker East, it could’ve happened anywhere on campus. It was our fault for not locking the door,” Korthaus said. The police have contacted the victims to tell them they have a suspect, but no officer has told the victims if their missing belongings will be recovered, Korthaus said. “We have no idea what’s going to be returned, if anything, so I just got a new driver’s license, new BuckID and a new credit card,” Korthaus said. Morman said no public safety notice was sent out because the crime was not reported until later in the day so it was a “matter of timing,” and the particular theft was also not seen as a “continuing concern to the campus community.” Morman advised, however, that students be extra cautious about letting people in behind them when entering their building.

Football from 1A Ratings for OSU games broadcast on ABC, however, experienced a decrease. The network featured four games in 2012 that averaged about 4.2 million viewers, but the two games ABC broadcast in 2011 averaged about 5.7 million, Humes said. He said many factors can influence a game’s TV rating, such as “the competition, the opposing teams, weather, time slots and how the team is playing on the field.” OSU was 12-0 in 2012 but was ineligible for the postseason. Both factors might have influenced the team’s television viewership, he said. “We are fortunate to have extraordinary fan support,” said Dan Wallenberg, an OSU athletic department spokesman. He also attributed the program’s success in rating and high attendance to its tradition and history. Rabid fan support could also explain OSU bucking national attendance trends. “We’re the biggest and the best,” said Sean LeFever, a third-year in material science and engineering, who said he’s attended every home football game since he was a freshmen. The OSU Board of Trustees recently approved a price increase for the 2013 football season. The public football ticket price will be $79 starting next season, a $9 increase, while student ticket prices will increase by $2 to $34.

KaYla ZaMaRY / design editor Athletic director Gene Smith also said last week during a Board meeting that the Sept. 28 game against Wisconsin will be a Premier Game, priced at $110 for the public. LeFever said the price increase would most likely not keep fans from going to games. “There’s a group of five to seven of us that go to every game,” he said. “We’re pretty loyal. (More expensive tickets) will hurt my bank account, but I’m still going to pay for them.” Newman said he isn’t thrilled with the ticket increase either. “It will probably affect ticket sales,” he said. “But we’ll have to see.”

The system was at the point where pieces had to be replaced, Balser said, and savings are already evident. The number of surveillance cameras has increased to more than 1,800 from 1,200 in the last few years, Balser said. “Cameras have gone through the roof because the expectation from the public — meaning you, me, and everybody these days — that if there’s a problem there should be a camera watching that problem,” Balser said. OSU Police Chief Paul Denton said surveillance cameras are an important part of the campus security effort, including sworn police officers. “It gives us the opportunity to follow up on more leads, but they’re not a panacea,” Denton said. “If you capture someone on camera and they’re not known, it may not work out like you see on TV.” Students said they would like to see more cameras in some locations. “I think an increase in cameras would be great because campus currently has a lot of blind spots. I think even doubling the number of cameras still won’t cover all of the blind spots, but it definitely will make the university safer,” said Drew Landgrave, a first-year in animal sciences. “I see the purpose of having more cameras to stop crimes or gather evidence for crimes that occur, but I think maybe they should only increase the amount of cameras in areas where crimes are occurring the most,” said Chris Summers, a third-year in art and technology.

Walk the Moon excited for Columbus show

concerts Wednesday

The audience should probably be more excited than anyone when a hometown band comes through Columbus on a national tour, but that’s not the case with Walk the Moon. “The big Columbus show is the one I’ve been looking forward to the most for a while, if not my whole life,” said Kevin Ray, bassist of the Cincinnati- and Columbus-based band Walk the Moon. “Hopefully we don’t mess up that bad.” Walk the Moon is scheduled to perform at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion on Thursday at 7 p.m. Playing this venue is especially significant for Ray, who grew up in Columbus. “I used to work for the LC, and to go back there, play that place and sell that place out is really bizarre,” Ray said. “It’s our biggest headlining show to date.” Walk the Moon always tries to create a certain atmosphere at its shows, and Columbus will be no different, Ray said. “It’s just becoming part of the Walk the Moon experience, creating this little community, this little otherworld at the show where people can just let loose and go nuts,” Ray said. “It sounds so hippie, but it really is what I think the live music thing is all about.”

Walk the Moon is slated to perform at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion Feb. 7. Ray said being a local band makes hometown shows like this even more of a special experience for the audience and the band. “The people who have been with us the longest, who have been supporting us the longest, are back home in Cincinnati and Columbus,” Ray said. “Those shows have a special energy, because everybody knows the words, everybody’s been there since the beginning. It’s definitely a special thing going home.” An important part of creating that atmosphere comes from the audience’s love for the music, and in

Walk the Moon’s case, their love for one specific song, Ray said. “We’ll play (‘Anna Sun’) probably at every show until the end of time because it’s how most people discovered us, and we‘re totally proud of that,” Ray said. “We love the fact that there’s a song out there that people have really grasped onto, and kind of taken as their own … ‘Anna Sun’ will forever be a part of our set list, I think. It’s a really important song to us.” The show, originally set for the Newport Music Hall, was moved to the LC to encourage more ticket sales.

“We thought we could sell more tickets, and it was going to fill (the Newport),” said Marissa Luther, marketing manager for Promowest Productions. “It’s sold out already (at the LC).” The LC’s indoor venue holds 2,200 people. The Newport holds 1,700 people. Ray said selling out this show is a bittersweet feeling for Walk the Moon. “It’s been a mixed thing, because you want everybody who wants to come to be able to get to a show, but also it’s kind of a mind-blowing thing to be selling out a bunch of venues,” Ray said. “Especially places like the LC. It’s a fixture on the Columbus music scene.” Opening for the show will be Pacific Air, a band that Ray says is making its impact on Walk the Moon. “We are quickly falling in love with them,” Ray said. “They’re awesome dudes, and we love the music.” Samantha Earlywine, a third-year in medical laboratory science, said even though this will be her first Walk the Moon show, she knows it will be something to remember. “I’m very new to the band, so I’m just looking forward to hearing a lot of their songs,” Earlywine said. “I feel like they’re a pretty upbeat band, so I’m excited for the experience.” Tickets for the concert are sold out, but any tickets bought for the Newport location will be honored at the door of LC.

Caitlin Essig Arts editor Columbus has a lively, budding music scene, with dozens of places to hear live music that draw in a range of talented artists. Each month, The Lantern will highlight some of the best acts to come through the city. Stay tuned to see what we think is worth the ticket price. Big Gigantic – Feb. 6 at Newport Music Hall If you haven’t heard of Big Gigantic, that’s OK. I happened to hear about the electronic music duo by chance, when a friend of mine saw a Big Gigantic show in New York City, having known nothing about them at the time. She raved about the concert and said the music and entire performance was incredible. “If you get the chance to see them, go,” she said. Columbus is set to get a taste of this group’s energy Wednesday when it performs at Newport Music Hall. To see what Big Gigantic has to offer, look up one of its promotional videos. In them, the duo promises a wild, colorful party with no shortage of throbbing beats and a smartly featured saxophone. To blow off some stress from the first half of the week, check out this show. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and Kill Paris and Manic Focus are scheduled to open the show. Tickets are available for $18 in advance and $20 at the door. Rascal Flatts – Feb. 9 at Nationwide Arena Country music shines in small towns during the summer, but Rascal Flatts is kind enough to grace big-city country fans with its presence this winter. Throw on some cowboy boots and let your inner country girl or boy out this weekend with Rascal Flatts. While Rascal Flatts is more accurately defined under the pop-country umbrella than strictly country, the band has a quality that is arguably much more synonymous with country than pop music: talent. The band is comprised of three men who are simply good at what they do — singing, writing music, playing

Furthermore, I think I speak for many when I say summer would be welcomed with open arms anytime soon, and while we can’t have that, Rascal Flatts puts on a fun show that can at least give the audience the feeling of summertime, even if just for one night. The Band Perry is scheduled to kick off the show, which starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster and range from $25.25 to $59.25. Matchbox Twenty – Feb. 16 at Palace Theatre Despite a messy history, including two hiatuses, a solo career for frontman Rob Thomas and band members coming and going, Matchbox Twenty maintains a strong presence in the music industry. The band released its fifth studio album, “North,” in 2012, about two years after its reunion from its second hiatus. “Overjoyed,” the latest single from “North,” is a simple, cute song, and the music video is even better. Matchbox Twenty produces average pop music. It doesn’t blow the listener away or break many barriers, but it works. Because of that, it has managed to stick around through any glitches in its past.

Comics exhibit to showcase local works, explain creative methods Julia Hider Lantern reporter

‘Local Comics Pop-Up Store and Creation Process Exhibit’ is set to take place Feb. 9-23 at the Ohio Art League gallery.

Although it might not be well-known, Columbus has a vibrant local comic book scene. “It’s kind of Columbus’ big secret,” said Ken Eppstein, a local comic book artist. Local artists, including Eppstein, hope it won’t be such a secret after the “Local Comics Pop-Up Store and Creation Process Exhibit” debuts. The exhibit is set to run from Thursday until Feb. 23 at the Ohio Art League gallery. Eppstein, who helped organize the exhibit, said in addition to displaying work by local artists, the exhibit will walk people through the process of creating a comic book, from writing the script to the finished product. “It’s complicated, but it’s really just a lot of hard work,” he said. Eppstein said a pop-up shop with local comic books will be included at the exhibit. “In addition to what’s up on the wall, people can come and see the actual final product and how varied it is from cartoonist to cartoonist, from publisher to publisher,” Eppstein said. The exhibit is slated to feature three presentations. The first presentation focuses on the history of comics in Columbus and will be given by Caitlin McGurk, the engagement coordinator at Ohio State’s

Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum. The presentation is scheduled for Saturday at 4 p.m. McGurk said she thinks the presence of the Cartoon Library contributes to the local comic book scene. “I think people are drawn to that,” she said. McGurk added that comic books have recently surged in popularity. “They’re being taken a lot more seriously in an academic setting, and obviously with the emergence of more and more comic book-based movies, comic books are no longer something that people just deem as nerdy or for kids, but they’re something for everybody,” McGurk said. Within the past year, comic book movies released have included “The Dark Knight Rises,” “The Avengers” and “The Amazing Spider-Man.” The surge of popularity for comic books is mirrored in the expansion of the Cartoon Library, which is slated to move from its current location in the Wexner Center for the Arts to Sullivant Hall in the fall. The move will increase the library’s size to almost 30,000 square feet from 6,800 square feet. The second presentation, scheduled for Feb. 16 at 4 p.m., will be a panel discussion led by Victor Dandridge from Vantage Inhouse Productions, highlighting diversity in local comics. “(Comic book artists) are men, women, people from all financial backgrounds, all social backgrounds. It’s pretty universal,” Eppstein said. Visit for the rest of the story.

me, Matchbox Twenty is sitting in my brother’s room listening to the radio. Its music brings a strong sense of nostalgia and with it, joy. Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show are sold out on Ticketmaster, but some are available on StubHub. Ra Ra Riot – Feb. 28 at A&R Music Bar Playing favorites is hard when there are so many incredibly talented musicians in the world, but Ra Ra Riot stands out in my book. I saw the band in concert before it lost its cellist, Alexandra Lawn, and her absence has since been overcome by the introduction of a synthesizer. The shift in sound has been major for the band, but with its steady lyrical and vocal success, led by Wes Miles, Ra Ra Riot is still a must-see. With infectious rhythms and truly high-quality, good music, even newcomers to the band will enjoy the show. There’s just something about the honesty in Ra Ra Riot’s music that translates well live, allowing the listener to get lost in the sounds. If you see one concert in February, make it this one. Pacific Air is slated to open the show and doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15.

Bill Hader to visit, bring laughs to OSU Caitlin Essig Arts editor Comedian Bill Hader is scheduled to bring his wit to entertain Ohio State students in a Q-and-A session. The Ohio Union Activities Board announced via Twitter Tuesday evening an event titled “An Evening with SNL’s Bill Hader,” slated to take place at 7:30 p.m. April 15 at Mershon Auditorium. Hader has been a “Saturday Night Live” cast member since 2005. Some of his best-known characters include offbeat city correspondent Stefon and deathly old TV reporter Herb Welch, and his distinct impressions include Al Pacino and Conan O’Brien. He has also acted in several films, including “Superbad,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Knocked Up.” Tickets for the event are free, one each, to students with a valid BuckID, and the ticket release is scheduled for March 18 at 5 p.m. at the Ohio Union Information Center. “The event will feature a moderated Q-and-A session with video clips, impressions and many laughs,” said Megan Lyon, comedy chair for OUAB, in an email.

Buckeyes stumble in overtime LIZ YOUNG Asst. sports editor

Michigan 76, Men’s Basketball 74


Ohio State men’s basketball was evenly matched with Michigan — until it wasn’t. The Buckeyes (17-5, 7-3 Big Ten) fell to the Wolverines (21-2, 8-2 Big Ten) in overtime, 76-74, Tuesday night in Ann Arbor, Mich. Down two in overtime, junior guard Aaron Craft’s drive to the basket was met with contact but no whistle, and the Wolverines escaped with the victory. The game’s second half ended with four separate ties, but 40 minutes wasn’t enough for the Big Ten foes as they entered overtime knotted at 72. But the extra period brought stumbles and missed shots. In line with his role as OSU’s most-potent scorer, junior forward Deshaun Thomas started off the contest with a seemingly effortless two points. The Wolverines responded though, attacking from inside and out. When Michigan sophomore guard Trey Burke’s layup went through the net with 12:29 remaining in the half, Michigan held an 18-8 advantage. But the Buckeyes did not wilt despite a hostile Crisler Center. Contributions from sophomore forwards LaQuinton Ross and Sam Thompson fueled OSU back into contention. Ross’ layup with 1:07 remaining in the first half gave OSU a 31-30 lead — its first in nearly 15 minutes. OSU ended the half shooting 50 percent from the floor compared to Michigan, which shot 44 percent. OSU opened the second half on a 10-7 run in the first five minutes to extend its lead. Michigan, behind junior guard Tim Hardaway Jr. caught fire. Hardaway hit five 3-pointers in the second half, including 12 straight points for the Wolverines to give them a narrow 55-54 advantage with less than nine minutes remaining. Down the stretch, the teams volleyed for the lead and though the Buckeyes trailed by two with less than a minute remaining, a jumper from junior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. evened the score at 72.

Walking into the first practice of the week at the Steelwood Athletic Training Facility, it seems clear the Ohio State wrestling team does not lack confidence. With upcoming matches against rival Michigan and No. 1 Penn State, the Buckeyes are treating this week like any other. “We’re trying to keep everything the same,” said redshirt sophomore Drew Stone. “We did good against Illinois, so we’ll have to replicate everything like that.” Coming off a 25-9 win against the Fighting Illini Friday, the No. 6 Buckeyes (10-2, 4-2 Big Ten) will take on Michigan (8-5, 2-4 Big Ten) and the 2012 national champions, Penn State (9-1, 6-1 Big Ten), over the weekend. In their most recent matches, the Wolverines lost a close match to Purdue, 19-18, while the Nittany Lions crushed Illinois, 37-0. Although Michigan might not pose as big of a threat as Penn State does, OSU redshirt sophomore Logan Stieber said the team is not taking the Wolverines lightly. “We have to be ready for both teams and not be too up or down for the matches,” the defending 133-pound NCAA Champion said. “Penn State is No. 1 so that’s a big matchup, but Michigan is very good too, so we have to make sure we don’t look past them.” OSU coach Tom Ryan could not agree more, saying that the team needs to treat each opponent equally. “We have to prepare for everybody,” Ryan said. “We need to make sure we know what their strengths and weaknesses are and work hard.” Michigan has four wrestlers ranked in the top 20 in their respective weight classes. The Nittany Lions have eight, six of which are in the top five. “Right now they (Penn State) have a couple of

OSU won, 29-10. individuals that are really good,” Ryan said. “I mean real good. They have a great coach. They’re committed to their program. They’re in a wrestling state. They have a lot of good things going on there but so do we. We look forward to wrestling them.” The Nittany Lions are not the only team with an impressive lineup, as the Buckeyes feature nine wrestlers ranked in the top 20, including two in the top five. Ryan said the Buckeyes will have to take advantage in the 133- and 141-pound weight classes, as those are the only two classes where Penn State does not have a top 20-ranked wrestler. “The lighter weights really have to step up,” Ryan said. “We have to pick up bonus points at 133 and 141.” Those weight classes at OSU are manned by the team’s highest-ranked wrestlers, Stieber, No. 1 at 133-poundsand his brother Hunter Stieber, No. 2 at 141-pounds.

However, the Buckeyes will need to hold their ground against Penn State’s upper weight classes of 184- and 197-pounds. OSU redshirt freshman and 16th-ranked Kenny Courts will face off against junior and No. 1-ranked Ed Ruth in the 184-pound weight class. The 197-pound weight class features OSU sophomore and 13th-ranked Andrew Campolattano against No. 3-ranked Quentin Wright, a senior. Overall, Ryan said he wants his team to hold nothing back, as he expects the match to be a close one. “It could come down to a point here, a point there,” Ryan said. “We’re going to need a total team effort to beat these guys.” OSU is scheduled to travel to Ann Arbor to take on Michigan at 6 p.m. Friday and then heads home to battle Penn State at St. John Arena at 4 p.m. Sunday.

In search of right mindset, confidence could be key for OSU DANIEL ROGERS Lantern reporter

With its preseason wrapping up last weekend, the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team is putting the finishing touches on its game plan for its season opener against the Detroit Titans Saturday at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. A big concern for the Buckeyes heading into the year seemed to be inexperience in the backline. After finishing the season as a top-five scoring defense, OSU had to say goodbye to its defensive starters, Joe Bonanni, Matt Kawamoto and Keenan Ochwat, and hello to what might be an inexperienced crew. After the Buckeyes’ performances in the preseason, though, especially those against No. 12 Syracuse and Robert Morris, coach Nick Myers is feeling more comfortable with his new defense. “I thought defensively we took some steps forward today,” Myers said. “We are starting to build some chemistry. You are seeing some guys starting to work together, which is what we want.” During the doubleheader, some younger players received their chance to play and hoped to make an

impression on Myers heading into the game against Detroit. Freshman attacker Tyler Pfister was one of the only players to play in both doubleheader matches and said he sees the growth the team has undergone throughout the preseason. “I think we’re trying to play to our strengths now,” Pfister said. “We know what personnel we have and what works for us. We’re really just trying to get better every day.” Part of improving might be overcoming early struggles in games and subsequent consequences. Myers said it’s a habit that worries him. “It’s always a concern when you have a letdown like that,” Myers said. “I think they came out a little flat, I thought you saw them settle down and I was proud of them when we did.” OSU senior midfielder Dan Wertz said the team can win any contest as long as it has the right mindset. “We’re excited, we have to play with confidence,” Wertz said. “We go into every game feeling like we can compete with anybody, but it’s all about what we do during the week. And then we put a lot together come Saturday and I think we feel confident.” OSU is set to play Detroit Saturday at 1 p.m.

studentvoice Graeter’s limited edition ice cream flavors devourable, Mint Cookies ‘n Cream takes cake latnern Columnist

As an Arizona native, if you were to ask me what my favorite ice cream parlor was, I’d have to say Cold Stone Creamery, but after living in Ohio for two years, Graeter’s Ice Cream has persuaded me otherwise. So far, 2013 has been a big year for this Cincinnati-based company with the addition of its first new flavor after three years, according to an article from, and the introduction of its new 2013 limited edition flavors. alex casola What better way to bring in the new year and Ohio’s freezing weather by sampling Graeter’s newest flavors. Its newest flavor, Black Cherry Chocolate Chip, is only available through its website. I was completely disheartened when I heard the news, because that meant less ice cream for me to taste. However, its limited edition flavors, Mint Cookies ‘n Cream and Cherry Chip, were in stores and ready for me to devour. I started with Mint Cookies ‘n Cream and in just one bite, I was in love. The mint ice cream was extremely minty, but it left your taste buds feeling fresh and satisfyingly chilly. Then there were the cookie pieces. Graeter’s blends its cookies into the ice cream as opposed to adding it in large chunks, diminishing the crunchy aspect. I’m not the biggest fan of biting into my ice cream because I’m highly susceptible to brain freezes, so I

enjoyed that I could still taste the Oreo cookie while letting it melt in my mouth. Overall, I give Graeter’s February-March Limited Edition Mint Cookies ‘n Cream flavor an A for overall satisfaction and freshness. Next, I tried the Cherry Chip, which was a concoction of cherry-flavored ice cream with maraschino cherries and Graeter’s infamous large dark chocolate chip chunks. Each bite I took had the perfect ratio of cherries and chocolate, and the blend of its naturally made cherry ice cream made it that much more perfect. For those of you who aren’t fans of dark chocolate, you would never have any idea it’s in the ice cream. The sweet cherry flavor cancels out the bitter taste the dark chocolate has, and an extra bite into a maraschino cherry can make you forget about the bitterness altogether. Overall, I give the January-February Limited Edition Cherry Chip flavor a B+. I’m personally not fond of maraschino cherry chunks, unless they’re on top of my milkshake. But I was still very upset that I couldn’t try their newest flavor, Black Cherry Chocolate Chip, so I did some math. Graeter’s has a Cherry Chip flavor and a Black Cherry flavor, which equals Black Cherry Chocolate Chip. I went back up to the counter and ordered my third round of ice cream. Black Cherry had the same natural cherry-flavored ice cream as the Cherry Chip but with dark cherries instead of maraschino and no chocolate. Cherry lovers beware, because it is a nonstop rush of cherry flavor that my taste buds weren’t ready to handle. I’m also giving this ice cream a B+ because I liked the dark cherries more than the maraschino, but missed the sweet, chocolate flavor from the Cherry Chip.

Graeter’s Ice Cream’s Limited Edition Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. If I had to predict what the Black Cherry Chocolate Chip tasted like, it would be nothing shy of amazing. Graeter’s new ice cream takes the dark chocolate chips, dark cherries and cherry ice cream to create a dairy masterpiece. Graeter’s Ice Cream’s nearest campus parlor is located at 1534 W. Lane Ave.

For novice runners, completing a 5K might seem intimidating, but if you develop a suitable training plan, stick to it and most importantly, motivate yourself, you’ll breeze past that finish line. molly tavoletti Regardless of experience, running is the simplest exercise because it can be done anywhere. You can take advantage of warm days (like last week’s spring tease), or fight the cold by hopping on a treadmill or the indoor track at the RPAC. Whatever venue you choose though, step one is quite literally taking step one and making the decision to try. This necessary motivation leads to step two: You can go as slow as you want, but don’t stop. Run at a comfortable pace for as long as you possibly can,

Interval training, hidden strength could speed up steps to fitness then push yourself for one more minute. You’ll likely be surprised with your inner strength. When training for distance, especially your first race, speed is a secondary priority. Make it your goal to finish the race, and don’t allow the time aspect to intimidate you. One effective training technique for gaining endurance is interval training. Intervals force you to give all you have for 30-second to five-minute portions and then recover by resting for a portion. If you’re just starting out, try walking at a brisk pace (4-5 mph) for two to three minutes and then running (6-8 mph) for five minutes. Repeat this cycle three to four times until you feel comfortable. As it becomes easier, slowly increase the amount of time you spend running. Not only does interval training boost your metabolism and do incredible things for your heart, it ups your endurance as well. The majority of running is mental, so bring your headphones and allow the beat of the music to drive you (a personal favorite: Kanye West Pandora Station). Another popular technique is to count “one, two” in your head each time a foot touches the ground. Once you get into a steady rhythm, going the distance becomes only a matter of mind over body. “The brain has two hemispheres that are separated and don’t interconnect. The left brain tries to steer

us towards pleasure and away from discomfort. The intuitive-creative right side connects us to our hidden strengths,” said 1972 U.S. Olympian in the 10,000meter race and author Jeff Galloway. On the day of the race, be sure to wake up at least an hour before you have to leave the house. Have a good, protein-packed breakfast like whole-grain toast with peanut butter. The protein and carbohydrates will provide you with sustained energy for the duration of the race. Be sure to dress for the weather as well. Layers are smart so you can remove them as you sweat. Most importantly, don’t let anxiety distract you. Running is the greatest stress reliever there is, so with every step on the pavement, just keep smiling through it and enjoy that runner’s high. In honor of National Heart Health Month, the girls in the fitness group Changing Health Attitudes and Actions to Recreate Girls are participating in the Ross Heart Hospital Wellness Series Strong at Heart 5K at Easton Town Center Saturday. To join the team visit Molly Tavoletti is vice president media chair for CHAARG.
