thelantern OSU not yet ‘worthy’ of championship talk


Dan HoPe Oller reporter


Whether Urban Meyer likes it or not, the expectation has been set for him to make the national championship in his second season as Ohio State’s football coach. The Buckeyes’ last national championship came in 2002, Jim Tressel’s second season as OSU coach. Meyer won his first national championship at Florida in his second season as their coach. Furthermore, the Buckeyes were the only undefeated team in the Football Bowl Subdivision last season, finishing 12-0 although they were banned from postseason play. Those expectations, however, aren’t coming from Meyer. “I’m a realist,” Meyer told The Lantern in an exclusive interview Monday. “I know as of April 1, we’re not worthy of that conversation.” Meyer acknowledged there are people in the program that do have national championship expectations but said the team’s primary goal should be competing for the Big Ten title, since even one loss could take the chance to play for a national championship out of their hands. “I’ve heard these people say our goal is a national championship,” Meyer said. “No it’s not, because what happens if you have two injuries or bad chemistry on your team? Do you not play the rest of the year? We want to compete for championships in November.” Meyer, who is entering his 12th season as a college football head coach, said he has “never not had a team compete for a championship in November.” He won two Mountain West Conference championships at Utah and two Southeastern Conference championships at Florida, but has never had a team finish lower than third in the division of its conference. Meyer said he “thought we would be able to get this thing going

Compensation (in the thousands) for USG presidents at Big Ten universities

The Ohio State Undergraduate Student Government president and vice president receive far greater compensation for their work than the elected officials at six of the other 11 Big Ten universities. While several other schools also offer financial benefits to a select few of their executives, only OSU offers a scholarship equal to the cost of in-state, fulltime, undergraduate tuition, room and board up to the cost of the least-expensive four-person resident hall room arrangement and the cost of books and supplies, according to OSU’s guidelines for USG presidential and vice presidential scholarship. The monetary value of the scholarships changes from year to year. The budget for books, supplies and tuition is determined by Need Analysis, while University Housing determines the room and board fees, for which the credit need not be applied to on-campus housing, according to the scholarship guidelines. The tuition portion of the scholarship includes mandated fees such as those for Central Ohio Transit Authority, student activity, recreational sports and Ohio Union, but does not include optional fees like student health insurance, student legal insurance, parking or athletic tickets. The USG president and vice president are permitted, however, to purchase a faculty parking permit although they have to pay the faculty rate of $756 annually, according to the guidelines and the OSU CampusParc website.

Books and supplies cost about $1,248 for the academic year, totaling $16,905 for the year, according to OSU Undergraduate Admissions website and the University Residences and Dining Services website. The funding for the scholarships comes in part from the Richard Mall Scholarship Endowment and in part from the Office of Student Life, according to

2.5% of OSU students default on loans JoHn Wernecke Lantern reporter

Ohio State students have a lower rate of loan default compared to students at other nationwide universities. OSU President E. Gordon Gee said a lower than average number of OSU students default on their debt. Of the 11,557 OSU student borrowers who began repayment in 2008, the year the Department of Education began its tracking, 604 have entered into default within two years which means OSU’s rate is roughly 2.5 percent. OSU’s three-year rate was 5.3 percent. Gee said in an interview with The Lantern editorial staff on March 25 that OSU students repay their debts at a very high rate, but the national federal student debt is an ugly picture. “We have $1 trillion in student debt, that’s kind of like a housing bubble,” Gee said. “There are a number of institutions where the numbers have gotten up into the teens or even the 20s and that is very unhealthy for our economy, so we need to focus on that.” Hoewever, some OSU students said repaying their debts can be difficult. “I’m going into med(ical) school so I’ll have tons of debt, basically,” said Thomas Smith, a first-year in

osU President e. gordon gee said a low number of osU students with loans default on their debt in an interview with The Lantern on march 25. psychology. “I have a job during the summer and I have a job right now so I’m constantly trying to pay off what I owe. You kind of accept it.” Doug Harvey, associate bursar at OSU, said the low rate is the result of consistent communication between his office and the students. “We have an internal collection policy where we’re very aggressive

about trying to reach out to those students and make phone calls, send letters, make sure that if the student is going to move on to graduate school or some other type of educational activity that they seek and apply for a deferment for which they might be eligible.” Harvey said. Harvey said students who communicate with the bursar’s office

are the most likely to pay their loans off without issue. “We often find that a student may be past due on a loan and just not know that they have some options,” Harvey said. “If we can explain those options, we can work with them to get the situation rectified.” The unpaid loans don’t just affect students in debt. “Students are going broke to go to schools and schools are going broke,” said Timothy Sharp Jr., a graduate student in art education. “Somewhere there is a missed connection.” The national rate of student loan defaults within three years of their first repayment was 13.4 percent, according to the most recent data from the U.S. Department of Education. During the same time period, public institutions had a default rate of 11 percent, private nonprofit institutions had a default rate of 7.5 percent, and for-profit institutions had the highest rate with 22.7 percent. According to the most recent data from the U.S. Department of Education, student debt has nearly tripled to $966 billion over the past eight years. The university has also faced financial problems with shrinking funding from the state. “That has happened at a lot of public universities around the country,” Gee said. “We belong to the people of the state. They love us but they don’t fund us.”


campus Pulitzer-winning author to speak on future of energy kristine varkony Lantern reporter A visit from Pulitzer Prize-winning author and global energy expert, Daniel Yergin, is in line with President E. Gordon Gee’s plan for the university to become carbon neutral in the future. Yergin is set to present “The Quest: The Future of Energy” Tuesday in an event hosted by OSU’s Office of Energy and Environment as part of an outreach program to educate the university community on energy efficiency where he will “try to provide an insight into where we are in energy, the dramatic changes that are happening, and what the future (will) look like in years ahead,” he said. Yergin emphasizes finding a balance between renewable energy sources and traditional sources such as oil and coal. He also highlighted the importance of becoming more energy efficient while still being competitively priced. “You have to be competitive to be fair, so I think it really goes back to innovation and technological advance,” he said. Joan Slattery Wall, OEE editor, said Yergin’s book “The Quest: The Future of Energy” looks at controllable and uncontrollable factors the energy consumers and creators have to take into account. Controllable factors are things like the kind of cars people drive and

how homes are heated, while uncontrollable factors include natural disasters that lead to oil spills, such as the 2010 spill in the Gulf of Mexico. “A lot of what (Yergin) talks about (in his book) is we need to keep in mind these lessons learned from what we’ve done over history in all of these areas of energy in order to decide what we’re going to do looking forward to find energy sources for the United States and to work and collaborate with other countries around the world,” Wall said. Yergin said he does not believe students will see major differences in the way people use energy for at least another 15 years, but believes Ohio, under Republican Gov. John Kasich, “has taken the lead in developing a strong, regulatory system,” to minimize the impact technologies such as fracking have on the environment. Ohio has a lot of shale deposits in eastern Ohio that have drawn the attention of some oil companies, and Kasich has welcomed the business. He aims to cut taxes to Ohioans by putting the financial burden on oil companies utilizing the resources. Fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, is a drilling process that extracts natural gas from shale underground. The process has caused some concern about the chemicals used to drill and their impact on groundwater. “I think Ohio’s economy is already benefitting and will benefit from this (regulating fracking), but it is important that it be done correctly and that it be properly regulated,” Yergin said. Yergin’s free presentation on the future of energy is scheduled for Tuesday at the Ohio Union.

For the first time, Ohio State has a reigning Mr. and Ms. Mahogany. Cameron Hopkins, a third-year in computer science and engineering, and Taylor James, a third-year in public affairs, were crowned the First Annual Mr. and Miss Mahogany at Mahogany Moments, an event part of the 35th annual African American Heritage Festival that centered around the theme “hope,” or “tumaini” in Swahili. The weeklong festival ran from March 22-29. Mahogany Moments consisted of a cocktail hour a short program and a dance in the Performance Hall of The Ohio Union, but the pinnacle of the program was the crowning of Mr. and Ms. Mahogany. The winners received a $200 scholarship, and will also have biographies and photos posted in Student Academic Services building and the Hale Center. James called the title of Ms. Mahogany an honor. “It really is an honor, and I’m really thankful to the committee for choosing us. It definitely means we have to uphold this title and represent the black community,” James said. “I’m hoping that it (the title) puts me at a higher position so that I can serve more here at Ohio State and be able to reach out further in different areas.” Hopkins also plans to do more service work and feels this title could

help him reach out to younger people in the community, not just OSU students. “It now sets a higher standard for us, it shows this campus what we really can do and what type of trend that we can set for the next Mr. and Mrs. Mahogany Moments,” Hopkins said. “I just want to take this to spread it around the campus and to younger people to show them that you can be this person, you can do this. Hope is always there for you, you know? You just got to continue reaching for it.” Winners are expected to be active leaders in the campus community, excel in academics, emulate the overall theme of tumaini and reach new heights in the community, said Nadiyah Harper, the co-chair of Mahogany Moments and a second-year in fashion and retail studies. All applicants for Mr. and Miss Mahogany submitted a one-page essay that the Mahogany Moments Subcommittee and OSU alumni evaluated. “Scores were calculated, and five males and five females went on to the semifinalist round,” Harper said. “In this portion of the selection process, applicants went through a 30-minute interview with Jackee and I, one subcommittee member and one Ohio State alumnus.” “With the 35th Annual African American Heritage Festival being a landmark year, my co-chair Jackee Mount and I wanted to implement a new tradition,” Harper said. “We wanted to begin something that we hoped would be greater than ourselves, so we decided to begin Mr. and Miss Mahogany.”

Student support The Buckeyes start their fourth week of spring practice Tuesday and will also hold practices Thursday and Saturday as they continue to prepare for the LiFESports Spring Game on April 13. Saturday’s practice will be the Buckeyes’ secondannual Student Appreciation Practice. The event will be held at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center at 11 a.m. and will be open to OSU students with a BuckID, along with siblings and parents of OSU students who are in attendance for “Sibs and Kids Weekend.” Meyer said students are the most important support group for OSU football, with former players being the second-most important. Students tend to be overlooked, however, because of the money that boosters and other people bring in to the program, Meyer said. “You do everything for boosters, you do a lot of things for former players … what about the students?” Meyer said. “I want them on our side. They’re the ones that create atmospheres in stadiums.” Meyer said he wants the general student body to have a relationship with the OSU football players. “The feedback I get from students is they felt like they don’t have access,” Meyer said. “Athletes walk on one side of the street, they walk on the other and that can’t happen. I don’t feel that here, I don’t think Ohio State’s really had that big of an issue.” Meyer said he expects a big student turnout Saturday. “I’d love to see thousands of students here,” Meyer said. “It’s their football team, it’s their coaching staff, it’s their facility. It’s not ours … I’m trying to give them ownership of this program.”

He said OSU gives its elected officials larger benefits in part because the USG shared-government model is more time consuming and demanding. He said he spends “50-plus hours per week” on USG-related tasks and that he is contractually not allowed to hold another job. “The biggest difference between Ohio State’s student government and other student governments (is that) we have to put more time, energy and policy focus into our dealings,” Stepp said. Other Big Ten schools that offer their student government officials some kind of financial compensation include Indiana University, Pennsylvania State University and University of Iowa. The Indiana University Student Association offers its president, vice president of administration, vice president of congress, treasurer, chief of staff and funding board co-directors $3,000 each in the form of a paycheck. The funds come from student fees that are allocated by the Committee for Fee Review, according to the IUSA website and the IUSA Chief of Staff Augustin Ruta. At Penn State, the University Park Undergraduate Association president receives a $3,500 scholarship that is funded by the Office of Student Activities. That office receives its funding from Penn State Transportation Services’ parking division, meaning “any money received from parking tickets on campus goes into their office,” said UPUA president Courtney Lennartz in an email. The University of Iowa Student Government splits $40,000 proportionally among 12 people, including the president and vice president and most of the executive staff. The money comes from student activity fees, and student government itself allocates the funds among the 12 officials, said Nic Pottebaum, the UISG president. Some Big Ten schools, however, do not have these benefits. University of Michigan and Northwestern University do not provide their elected student government officials with either scholarships or paychecks. Michigan’s Central Student Government,

continuations Taylor White, a second-year in social work, said she thinks it is important for students to have access to increase their involvement with the football program. “Since we support them so much, we should have access to seeing practices or being involved,” White said. Zach Brenner, a first-year in early childhood education, said he cannot attend this year’s event due to other plans but hopes the tradition continues so he can attend. “Just seeing the team up close and personal before the Spring Game … I think it’s really a cool opportunity,” Brenner said. Academic progress About 510 of OSU’s approximately 1,100 student-athletes were honored Monday as OSU Scholar-Athletes, awarded for earning a gradepoint average of at least 3.0 for the 2012-13 academic year. About 30 members of the 2012 Ohio State football team, which included more than 100 players, received the honor. Meyer believes the number of academic achievers within the athletic department as a whole is indicative of OSU’s academic progress. “You start talking about academic reform, and every time I hear that, I cringe and I say, ‘what do you want?’” Meyer said. “Two out of three (student-athletes above a 3.0 GPA)? How much more do you have to reform?” Meyer said although the Big Ten is often regarded as a top academic conference, he feels that the emphasis on academic achievement has increased throughout college athletics. “I think the Big Ten’s fantastic. I think we’re probably on the top, but does that mean other conferences don’t work on it? I don’t feel that,” Meyer said. “There’s a lot of things (that) need (to be) reformed in my mind in college athletics, but the amount of resources and time and energy spent on academics, I don’t know if you can do any more.”

however, provides its president and vice president with parking passes worth $25.25 per month and given to them by the vice president of Student Affairs, said Omar Hashwi, the CSG vice president, and Michigan’s Parking and Transportation Services. OSU provides the scholarships to allow the president and vice president to “fulfill their duties,” according to the scholarship guidelines. “The funding provided to presidents and vice presidents is a scholarship based upon their proven and future merit as student leaders in their respective organizations. The funding does not represent compensation for employment, as student government leaders are not employees,” according to the guidelines. Some OSU students think that the large compensation for USG officials is justified. “If they’re doing their job well and doing programs that actually benefit the school, then I think compensation isn’t out of the question,” said Johnny Krammer, a first-year in computer science and engineering. Krammer said scholarships make more sense as compensation than paychecks given the student government officials are working for the students. “I think scholarships is the way to go because they’re doing work for the school,” he said. Other OSU students agreed that the scholarships are OK. “It is a big time commitment and that keeps them from working, or other ways of providing for themselves, and school,” said Rosa Nemec, a fourth-year in engineering. “I think a scholarship is more applicable because we’re here for school, whereas a paycheck you can use for other things other than school.” Select members of the student governments at Michigan State University, University of Wisconsin, University of Minnesota and Purdue University did not respond to emails requesting information. University of Illinois’ student government and a representative from the Association of Students of the University of Nebraska did not return calls requesting information.

Brutus guides virtual tour of campus via smart phone

A virtual Brutus Buckeye might soon be able to save visitors the trouble of carrying around a campus map. Ohio State’s mascot will come alive to guide people on a virtual tour of campus as part of the Find Brutus Augmented Virtual Tour Guide Application. This application, brainchild of College of Education Ph.D. student Brad Henry, is still a working prototype. “It won’t be released right away because it is currently still in development. I will be doing a small pilot test in the fall,” Henry said. The Find Brutus Augmented Virtual Tour Guide Application uses the idea of augmented reality, a concept that has always piqued Henry’s interest. “We’re enhancing and mixing the technological with the present environment,” Henry said. Henry sponsored a group of four students from the computer science and engineering senior capstone project during Spring Semester. The students have assembled the prototype together outside of the capstone class — Mark Mathis and Jacob Peddicord focus on the mobile application components, and Michael Jodon and Carl Shotwell focus on the web application. After the semester, the application will return to Henry, who plans to finalize the application before releasing it to the public on the Android market. The prototype tour begins at William Oxley Thompson Memorial Library and is currently programmed to recognize areas around the Oval. When the application is opened, the lens of a mobile device shows the user’s surroundings through the device’s camera. The application will eventually recognize key campus areas programmed into the tour, with bubbles of information hovering in front of chosen tour destinations. The user can click on these blurbs and expand the text to find out more information about the location. After the tour, the application asks users to “find Brutus” using the device’s camera, and when the application recognizes the area Brutus is “hiding,” a 3D Brutus appears on the screen. The application will then quiz the user over the information that has been covered so far. “It’s something that you use in addition to the tour or a little game on the side or if you are just walking around looking at things, you’ll find Brutus,” Peddicord said. Shotwell, who helped develop the web application for Find Brutus, works on the OSU Mobile Application for the university. Shotwell said the thought of integrating the Find Brutus application into the OSU Mobile Application has been considered. “It’s definitely something they are looking at doing,” Shotwell said. “(The) iPhone version right now has the Buckeye Stroll

app, which is similar to this (Find Brutus), but it doesn’t have the augmented capability.” The technologies this application uses are similar to that of Google glasses, a head-mounted wearable computer. One of Henry’s long-term goals is that this technology can be used in training devices in the medical field. “I have had recent conversations with the folks from the OSU Medical Center and from some of the libraries, so they are also interested in leveraging the framework,” Henry said. “Find Brutus is going to take on a much bigger life than just this particular project.”

OSU football coach Urban Meyer points during a practice on March 5 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

As far as standings go, the Ohio State football team could not have done any better than it did last season. Despite being banned from postseason play as a result of the program’s sanctions from the “Tattoo-Gate” scandal, the Buckeyes won all 12 of their games and were Big Ten Leaders Division champions. In the eyes of their coach, however, perfection in the win-loss column is not equivalent to excellence on the field. “Believe it or not … we finished 12-0, but we were not a great (team), we were very good,” Meyer told The Lantern in an exclusive interview Monday. “In some areas we were great, in other areas we were not. There’s some weak links to this program still.” Considering that, Meyer said it is important for his team to avoid complacency after last year’s undefeated season. “I don’t feel it (complacency from his team), because we’re not very good right now,” Meyer said. “I feel a void in leadership … We had not good leaders, great leaders.” The Buckeyes’ leadership void is especially prevalent on the defensive side of the ball, where the Buckeyes lost seven starters from last year’s team, six of whom were seniors. Meyer said the development of his defense and whether new players can

emerge and step up as leaders is the “essence of if we’re going to be good or bad” next season. “What’s going to make or break us next year? It’s going to be especially defensive leadership,” Meyer said. Meyer noted rising junior linebacker Ryan Shazier as a player he expects to step up as a leader on defense but expressed concern about Shazier currently being limited in practice due to a sports hernia injury. Offensively, Meyer said the Buckeyes are “still at 60 percent,” even though they are returning nine starters from last season, including quarterback Braxton Miller, who won the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year award as a sophomore last season. “We’re not very good,” Meyer said. “Last year, honestly I thought we were very average offensively. I thought Braxton did some great things running the ball and Carlos Hyde and our offensive line, some areas were very strong but offensively, if you say big picture, we’re a very average offense.” In their 12-0 season, the Buckeyes ranked 21st nationally with 37.2 points per game and 46th nationally in total offense with 423.8 yards per game. For the Buckeyes to find the extra 40 percent of their offense, Meyer said more playmakers need to step up. “The great offenses in America right now are the ones that have the guy that can

“Ohio State athletics is really just centered around the football program.” “Who cares that basketball season is over — when does spring football start?” “How many more weeks until the Buckeyes kick off in the fall?” For as long as I can remember, questions and comments like these were all that I heard when it came to OSU athletics. The mindset was always about football as king, and any success that the basketball team or any other program was just idle entertainment as we patiently waited for September to roll around and those beloved football

weekends to return. It’s time for us to take a step back and change the way we think about our Buckeyes. Based on the frustration that still lingers inside me (and many other Buckeye fans) following the disappointing 70-66 loss to Wichita State Saturday night, the evidence to support the idea that OSU is no longer “just a football school” grows more and more each day. Sure, the loss to a No. 9 seed in the NCAA Tournament with a chance to make a second-straight Final Four appearance makes us wonder if this was ever really the year OSU could have won a national championship, but look at the continued success OSU coach Thad Matta is having with the program. The team finished with a 29-8 overall record, won the Big Ten Tournament title and came within a few missed free throws by Michigan of at least a share of the regular season Big Ten title for the fourth year in a row. If it were not for an extremely bad half of basketball and a ghastly 31 percent shooting performance, we would all be considering making the eight-hour drive to Atlanta to watch the team play in its second Final Four in as many years.

The job that Matta was able to do with his team this year is the best coaching effort of his career. With only one consistent scorer in junior forward Deshaun Thomas and essentially no offense coming from the post while playing in the best conference in the country, Matta was able to mold his team into a national title contender. The Buckeyes are the only team in the nation to have made it to the Sweet 16 in four consecutive seasons, and certainly demand the respect of Buckeye Nation. Matta has been able to recruit big-time players like Thomas, Jared Sullinger, Mike Conley Jr., Greg Oden, Jon Diebler and Aaron Craft, who have all helped to solidify OSU as a top-10 team year after year. Yes, football is king. It has been that way as long as I can remember. The money, television ratings and publicity the sport provides OSU is staggering. I am not denying that. Every Saturday there’s a home game during the fall, Ohio Stadium is filled to the brim with screaming fans showing their support for the football team. But I think it’s time we started doing the same for basketball.

I understand that it is difficult to pack the Schottenstein Center on Tuesday and Wednesday nights when there are only about 2,400 tickets available to students and the basketball team has more than twice as many home games as football. That still should not prevent Buckeye fans from watching the basketball team on television or at least understanding that the program is elite. Matta was close to taking OSU to back-to-back Final Fours. Urban Meyer led the football team to a 12-0 season in 2012. Mark Osiecki and the men’s hockey team were two wins away from capturing the CCHA Tournament championship. The softball and baseball teams are off to great starts this spring. No matter how you look at it, it’s a great time to be a part of Buckeye Nation. Fans just have to take the time to realize it.


sports All Buckeye sports warrant attention, not just basketball Letter to the editor: As a basketball player at Ohio State, I am both proud and honored that our university follows our sport the way they do. It is a privilege to play for Ohio State, to be a part of winning the Big Ten Tournament this year, and to have made it to the Elite Eight. I know that athletes in other sports that do not get much press coverage are also winning championships. Just two weekends ago, Logan Stieber won his second-consecutive national championship in his weight class in wrestling, and senior Marco Canevari marked the Scarlet and Gray’s single individual champion title in fencing by securing the gold medal in men’s epee on March 22. A day later, gymnasts Sarah Miller and Aly Marohn captured the Big Ten championship on the balance beam. Last Tuesday, The Lantern featured an article in which athletic director Gene Smith talked about how Ohio State isn’t just a football school. He talked about the success of our basketball team. It would be good to remember that in the other sports, there is a lot of success too. All athletes at Ohio State work very hard at being the best they can be at their sport. I wish that all athletes could receive the attention that our football and basketball teams get. They all deserve to be celebrated. Deshaun Thomas Third-year in sports management

change a game when they get the ball in their hands,” Meyer said. “We don’t have enough of those guys right now. “(Rising senior wide receiver) Philly Brown’s developed,” Meyer added. “I think (rising senior running back) Carlos Hyde’s developed into being that kind of back. (Rising junior wide receiver) Devin Smith is up-and-down still, but he certainly has the potential, when he does it’s really good. But other than that, you don’t have enough.” For the Buckeyes to build upon last season and be a contender, Meyer said the Buckeyes have to do the same thing as “every other team in America:” improve their weaknesses. “If you do (improve your weaknesses), you have a chance to be a better team,”

Meyer said. “That’s what we’re working on now.” Considering the Buckeyes won every game they played last season, finishing the season with a better win-loss record will not be easy. Being a better team this season, however, could lead to opportunities to play in the Big Ten Football Championship Game or a BCS bowl — opportunities the Buckeyes did not have last season because of their postseason ban. The Buckeyes will continue to strive for improvement Tuesday, when they take the field for their ninth practice of the spring football season. The Buckeyes have six remaining spring football practices prior to the LiFESports Spring Game, which will be played April 13 at 1 p.m. in Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.

‘Buckwild’ death a wake-up call for MTV

Shain Gandee, who had starred on MTV’s reality series ‘Buckwild,’ was found dead April 1.

A 21-year-old star of “Buckwild,” an MTV show featuring a group of reckless West Virginia teenagers, was found dead Monday after going missing around 3 a.m. Sunday. Shain Gandee, former prom king and a main character on the show was driving off-road with his uncle, David Dwight Gandee, 48, and Donald Robert Myers, 27. They were all found dead in the vehicle. I am hoping the events of this past weekend will get the producers at MTV thinking about how strong their influence is on its viewers and stars. “We’re young, free and Buckwild.” This promo for the MTV show “Buckwild” was paired with clips from a group of young people doing crazy, unsafe stunts just for kicks and because there’s not much else to do in their small town of Sissonville, W.Va. Their fast and dangerous lifestyles led them to 3 million viewers on Thursday nights for their first season. The trailer definitely caught my eye, but not in a good way. I had no intentions of watching this show and supporting MTV’s efforts to appeal this “live fast, die hard” lifestyle to their young viewers. MTV has enough programs that show their viewers dangerous lifestyles can be fun, and hey, maybe if you’re crazy enough you could get your own show too. Being on MTV doesn’t exactly skyrocket

you to fame, but for an average person, it can be quite the ego booster. It doesn’t help if the premise of the show is crazy young people who feel invincible. Shain might have been drawn into the excitement of being an MTV celebrity. Who wouldn’t be? But being known for being a little wild, perhaps even buckwild, can lead one to do some pretty dangerous things — even things that can end your short life at the tender age of 21. The only positive thing that can come out of this show and these deaths would be for MTV to realize that it is negatively impacting society. Its plans for a second season were announced in February, however since news of Shain’s death, MTV has suspended production on the series, according to The New York Times. Thankfully so, because young children do not need to see this extreme exaggeration of how some people live their lives, and the cast members should not be forced to act in a way that’s worthy of national entertainment. If this is the purpose of television today, then we might as well throw our televisions out the window. Shain’s death is a very sad wake-up call for MTV that its tactics to get more viewers by exaggerating reality is unacceptable. If they do not take this opportunity to see that what they are doing is damaging to everyone involved, they better figure it out soon. The last thing anyone wants is another death to be caused by MTV’s influence on viewers and contracts with cast members.

Indie band Wavves is set to perform April 2 at The Basement.

Surf-punk styles of Wavves to take on sold-out Columbus stage Chelsea Savage Lantern reporter

“Defiance” “grand Theft auto: Vice City Stories” “ninja gaiden III: razor’s edge”

Coming off a gig on “The Late Show with David Letterman” last week and multiple sold-out shows across the country, indie band Wavves is making a pit stop to play a sold-out show in Columbus and give fans a taste of its new album. “(The tour has) been a really good response so far, I don’t think any of us were expecting that and most of the shows have been sold out,” said bassist Stephen Pope. The group have played five sold-out shows on this tour so far, according to its Facebook page. Wavves is slated to perform Tuesday at The Basement. Doors open at 7 p.m.

The band is touring in support of “Afraid of Heights,” which released March 26 and is the fourth studio album from the band, which currently consists of frontman Nathan Williams, drummer Jacob Cooper and Pope. Pope said they are exceptionally proud to perform this record, considering it is different from what the band has usually done. “We spent a year in the studio. We didn’t have a label this time because it gave us more freedom to do stuff we wanted and I’m extremely happy with it,” he said. Riley Webb, a third-year in information systems, is a big fan of the band’s music. “The main thing that draws me to Wavves is their kind of lo-fi, surf-punk sound that you don’t see too often these days,” Webb said. “In a world of overproduced music, they kind of go back to a simpler time.”

FIDLAR and Cheatahs are scheduled as the opening acts. Olivia Crandall, a fourth-year in international business, plans on attending the sold-out show, and said she is not only looking forward to seeing Wavves, but also FIDLAR. “I’ve seen Wavves before and they’re really great live. I also heard FIDLAR’s debut is pretty solid, so I’m excited to check them out,” Crandall said. Pope said he and his bandmates are excited for the Columbus performance. “I’m looking forward to being back in Columbus again. I want everyone to try to crowd surf, hopefully there will be enough people there,” he said. “We always try to have fun and we practiced a ton so I think we sound a little bit better than we used to. Hopefully it’s fun for everyone.” The Basement is located at 391 Neil Ave.

‘Game of Thrones’ premiere missing some elements, but season appears off to a good start Arts Columnist

A blank white winter wasteland opens the third season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Picking up where last year’s season ended, Samwell Tarly (John Bradley), man Ben Keith of the Night’s Watch, is flailing his way through a blizzard while undead wights and frozen Others attack the Night’s Watch in the frozen lands Beyond the Wall. “Valar Dohaeris,” the title of the first episode, is High Valyrian for “all men must serve,” a curious title for an episode with no battles. The episode is full of talk and plot, but I’m worried the show’s creators have cut material from the books. Jon Snow (Kit Harington) meets Mance Rayder (Ciarán Hinds), leader of the wildlings Beyond the Wall, who is nowhere near as pleasing to the eye as the books would have us believe. Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) argues with his father Tywin (Charles Dance), foreshadowing a future confrontation. Petyr Baelish (Aidan Gillen) plots to steal Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) away from King’s Landing. Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) visits the slave markets of Astapor, seeking to buy an army. What’s missing? Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) makes no appearance in this episode, and

Courtesy of HBO

Emilia Clarke stars as Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones.’ the only indication of her brother Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) is a burning Winterfell in the opening titles. Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley) is seen, still a prisoner of her son after the events of last season, but Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) are nowhere to be found. The Sorrowful Men, a guild of dreaded assassins, appear to have been replaced entirely by the immortals of Qarth, who the book says were all burned to death. The Reeds, friends of Bran, didn’t appear last season, and the only reason I know the Reeds will even

appear in this season is the pre-release interviews with their actors. Speaking of the pre-release interviews, director David Petrarca doesn’t seem to be worried by the rampant piracy of his show. At the Perth Writers Festival in February, Petrarca said that piracy contributes to the buzz surrounding the show, adding to its spread. HBO immediately issued a statement denouncing illegal downloading and touting the legal ways to watch, but the damage was done: fans no longer feel bad about pirating the show so they can watch.

“Game of Thrones” was the most torrented show last year, with an average of 3.9 million downloads per episode, way beyond the nearest contender, “How I Met Your Mother.” What drives this demand? The only way to watch it legally is through the HBO cable and satellite channel or online through HBO Go, a video portal that can only be accessed by subscribers to the channel. Don’t have cable or satellite? You’ll have to wait for the DVD. HBO Go is an adequate solution, but the long buffering times and occasional quality change to accommodate slow Internet speeds can be annoying. HBO Go is like YouTube — there’s no download option, just the stream. It would be nice to be able to pay a fee to download the highest quality video straight to my hard drive without having to also pay for cable. But despite these gripes, this season looks just as promising as the last two. Margaery Tyrell’s (Natalie Dormer) dinnertime verbal jousting with the Lannisters was excellently written and acted. The visuals continue to improve, with Daenerys’ dragon, Drogon, catching, cooking and eating fish straight from the ocean. It’s a great effect, and sets the standard for what will hopefully be a flesh-roasting, eye-watering, braingratifying season to come. Grade: A on content, B on packaging

[ a+e ] Reunited band Floor to bring heavy style to Columbus ALEX CASOLA Lantern reporter After more than 20 years in the music industry, the band Floor is back together to tour and prepare for the creation of its new record. Floor is set to perform Thursday at Ace of Cups, with the doors opening at 8 p.m. Band members Steven Brooks (guitar, vocals) and Anthony Vialon (former bassist and current guitarist) met in Miami in 1992 and decided to put together a rock/ heavy rock band. They started playing with drummer Henry Wilson in 1997. Floor released its first album, which was self-titled, in the early 2000s, in addition to the few EPs it released in the ‘90s. The band eventually split up in 2003, according to its Facebook page. Brooks split off to form a new band named Torche, which ended up helping bring the band back together. “We thought when we (released the album), it was going to be new, but then it just kind of dysfunctioned,” Vialon said. “The popularity and invention of the Internet and the success of Torche propelled the original record. We did a reunion show and when we saw that there were a few hundred people in the audience, we decided to get back together.”

Floor is slated to perform April 4 at Ace of Cups. The members of Floor toured together in 2010 as a reunion tour and officially decided to get back together earlier this year. The band plans to release a new album on record label Season of Mist later this year. “We haven’t put out a record in 10 years,” Brooks said. “Since we are about to record a new record, we decided to do a tour as a warm up.” Vialon described Floor’s style as heavy rock/

s ’ TK

doom pop because it has a style that is distinct to the band members’ personalities. With low-tuned guitars, heavy and poppy riffs and upbeat vocal melodies, Vialon said it was good to have the versatility of producing crushing, devastating songs as well as catchy, poppy songs. “We came up with our own thing and it’s great in the sense that we know we came up with something

new,” Vialon said. “It’s difficult to create something new in any artistic medium.” Chris Wood, owner of booking and promotions company Starwood Presents, helps book bands in the Columbus area and has a particular interest in Floor due to his history with the band. “Floor is a special, powerful band that rarely tours, so when I got the word that they were looking to play in Columbus again I got excited,” Wood said in an email. “Back in 2002 I played drums in a band that opened for Floor. That started my love of heavy, dynamic, underground rock bands that were coming through town. I’ve been hooked ever since.” Brooks said audiences cannot expect a particular kind of show from the band because it approaches each of its performances differently. Some shows have stage diving, while others are more mellow — it all depends on the energy of the audience. “We just like playing music; we just like to play what we do and hope people come out to our show,” Brooks said. Floor is set to perform alongside bands Mockingbird and Thrones at Ace of Cups, and the show is scheduled to start at 9 p.m. Tickets are available for $10 in advance and $12 on the day of the show at and Ace of Cups. Ace of Cups is located at 2619 N. High St.

Find creative footwear options for spring weather in boat shoes, sandals, wedges T.K. BRADY For The Lantern Now that spring has finally sprung, it’s time to put away your Uggs and break out the boat shoes. Warmer weather means perfectly pedicured toes and sexy sandals. Lucky for you, there are plenty of affordable options for warm weather footwear that can promise quality and trendiness for seasons to come. Boat shoes: A classic pair of brown leather boat shoes can be one of the most versatile items in your closet. These cool and casual shoes work with shorts, pants, crops or even a dress. They’re also a great alternative to tennis shoes because they too offer good support and protect your entire foot. Gladiator sandals: Still in style and offering tons of design options, these shoes are perfect for everyday wear or special occasions. Look for leather soles with

a bit of cushion to avoid blisters on the bottoms of your feet. Don’t be afraid to look for pairs in bright colors, patent material or bold jewels. Super strappy designs can be a bit more casual while a T-strap design will dress up any sundress. Ballet flats: In bold colors, ballet flats are super springy footwear. Look for vibrant colors like canary yellow, cerulean and hot pink to pair with jeans or basic white pants. You can also opt for flats in a floral print or striped canvas pattern. It will take some time to find a pair that fit your feet comfortably and don’t feel like they’ll give you blisters after the first few wears. Wedges: Even the clumsiest of college girls can pull off a wedge heel with ease. The chunky heel and groundedness of the shoe makes it easy to walk in and more supportive than the average sandal. Wedges made from cork tend to be the most supportive and will give you the least amount of joint pain after long periods of wear. Look for pairs with thicker straps to avoid blisters on your ankles and near your toes.

Peep-toe platforms: Peep-toe platform pumps are a great dress shoe option for the springtime. It’s a bit more conservative than a strappy sandal and will protect more of your foot from the spring showers that you risk running into in April. A patent leather pair in nude is your most practical option, but think about bright colors or even prints if you want something more creative. Shoes can bring an entire outfit together. If you look great from your head to your toes, you’ve created a stylish look that is most likely right on trend. Don’t be too concerned about spending a ton of money on spring shoes because it’s more than likely that you’ll do so much walking in them that they won’t last more than a few seasons. Find ones that are comfortable and made well enough to last at least through August. By next spring you’ll be looking for a new pair to go with whatever weather Mother Nature sends your way.

Dressing well for class may bring opportunities, respect, attention JAKE MENDEL For The Lantern Jake Mendel is the Director of Development for Pursuit, a men’s clothing store located in the South Campus Gateway. Courtesy of Realitism Films

‘Wrong’ is now showing at the Gateway Film Center. REVIEW

‘Wrong’ is right choice for some ETHAN SCHECK Lantern reporter “Wrong” has reached Columbus’ Gateway Theater, drawing the interest of a small but satisfied audience. Quentin Dupieux’s 2012 Sundance entry follows Dolph Springer (Jack Plotnick of “Drawn Together”) as he searches for his dog, Paul, with the unwelcome aid of animal abuse prevention and dog telepathy expert Master Chang (William Fichtner of “The Dark Knight”) and top-tier Detective Ronnie (Steve Little of “Eastbound and Down”). In case nothing in that last paragraph tipped you off, this movie is weird. So if you do not like weird things, this film will not suit you. Given that the movie was made by the same director who brought the world “Rubber,” a comedy/horror film about a killer tire, I doubt any antiweirdos are searching this out anyway. However, if you do enjoy bizarre humor, you are in for a treat. While I can imagine many filmmakers in the same position trying to be overtly odd or dark to stand out, everything in this film just seems to fit within the framework instead of beating you over the head with its strangeness. Death, murder and other dark subjects come up, but not with major fanfare or over-embellishment. I expected this film to be far less balanced based on the trailer, but overall it is a very positive and somewhat reserved movie. The cinematography, editing and music are all handled by Dupieux (though credited by his stage name, Mr. Oizo, under music), with each element complementing, rather than adding to, the weirdness.

The general narrative of the film is based on Dolph’s everyday life. He gets up at 7:60 a.m., talks with his gardener, Victor, while standing in the yard with him and goes to work at an office with a torrential indoor downpour. It is clear that life is not going his way — for instance, his palm tree has inexplicably transformed into a pine tree. Thus, the loss of his dog is too much to bear and justifies the mystifyingly eccentric ends to which he will go to retrieve him. Along the way we are delivered a multitude of red herrings and sketch-like scenarios that keep the comedic value of the film steady whenever the plot seems to lull. Given its average runtime of 94 minutes, there were not a lot of instances where I found myself bored with the movie. This type of film is usually not one to make you laugh out loud, but I found myself doing just that. Many of the jokes were incredibly low-key, though, so I would find it understandable if the film landed outside of a person’s humor range. While I am sure you could get a lot out of this movie without seeing it in theaters, I would recommend anyone that does see it goes to the cinema. Independent films like “Wrong” need the direct support of its niche fan base in order to guarantee more films like it can be made. I rate films based on how well they fulfill their own destiny. “Wrong” is everything it is trying to be, maybe more, and deserves more attention than I am sure it will ever garner. Grade: A

We’ve all done it. It’s a cold day outside, you overslept your alarm, and now you’re running to class without having taken a shower. You’re wearing sweatpants, a hoodie and sunglasses to protect your identity, but when this goes from being the exception to being the norm, is it acceptable? As a student, you have the right to go an entire week wearing sweatpants. The question is, should you? There are three distinct benefits to dressing nicely when you go to class: respect, attention and opportunity. I use the term “nicely” fairly loosely, as different individuals will have different standards. For the sake of this article, think of dressing nicely as throwing on a pair of good chinos and a button-down or polo. No tie Courtesy of Pursuit or blazer is necessary, but every little bit helps. Dressing nicely to class may Dressing well commands respect. Depending on benefit you in the long run. your major and the class that you’re taking, it’s quite possible that you can be called up to the front of the class at any point in time. Dressing nicely prepares you for any public speaking situation that you could run into as a student. Nobody likes listening to the kid in flip-flops, cargo shorts and a tank top. As much as it’s accepted during the warmer months to dress for Oval Beach, keep in mind the impression that you might have to make during class. The second benefit of dressing nicer is the attention it brings. Not only will other students in your class see that you’re dressing better, the teacher will notice as well. Making statements from a position of authority is much easier when you dress like you’re in a position of authority. The only caution with this is knowing when to not overdress. Going to class in a suit every day if you wear one for work is great, but wearing a suit to class every day will bring a lot of attention, some of which might be unwanted. The last benefit with dressing nicely when going to class is that you never know when an opportunity will present itself. For example, you’re sitting in your entrepreneurship class when a guest speaker walks in. That speaker not only works in the field you’re interested in but is looking for driven individuals to become part of his team. Dressing nicely puts you in a prime position to walk straight up to the speaker and close the deal. A business professional will traditionally look much more highly of a student wearing a button-down than a hoodie. So next time you go to class, and you’ve got time to get ready, pass on basketball shorts and grab a nice shirt and pair of pants. The extra effort shows to your teacher, your classmates and your future employers. You never know what opportunities or situations you might find yourself in, and it’s best to always be prepared.
