Saturday’s game against TCU feels close to home for some Buckeyes.

The student voice of the Ohio State University

Year 138, Issue No. 34

WYATT CROSHER Assistant Sports Editor crosher.1@osu.edu

After two games during which Ohio State asserted dominance over weaker opponents, the No. 4 Buckeyes will travel to Arlington, Texas, to face the No. 15 Horned Frogs. Though it is labeled as a neutral-site game, the stadium is a mere 18-mile drive from TCU’s usual location, making this more of a road game for Ohio State, facing the most talented opponent on its schedule up to this point. Ohio State comes in following two victories by more than 40 points: a 77-31 victory over Oregon State in the opener and a 52-3 win against Rutgers where the Buckeyes allowed 134 total yards while tallying 579 on offense. The Horned Frogs might be the most daunting challenge Ohio State has faced yet, but acting head coach Ryan Day said he looks at this matchup no different than any other. “If you don’t think it’s a big game, try losing it,” Day said. “They are all big, and you’ve got to play hard. Every game, you’ve got to be ready. You’ve got to be prepared and do a great job.” The TCU game will be the last game Day serves as the acting head coach, with head coach Urban Meyer’s three-game suspension lifting against Tulane on Sept. 22.

Ohio State redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins (7) catches a snap in the second quarter of the game against Rutgers on Sept. 8. Ohio State won 52-3.

Even with his absence on Saturdays, Meyer has been in control of the team during practices since Sept. 2 following the Oregon State matchup. “We have been game-planning all together so he’s had a huge amount of input,” Day said. “It’s been a huge learning experience for me just going through it on

a day-to-day basis, but one more week here and then kind of back to normal.” Gary Patterson enters his 18th season as head coach for the Horned Frogs and is the winningest coach in program history. The team is coming off an 11-3 season in 2017, during which it finished as the No. 9 team in the country.

Through two games, TCU ranks No. 14 in the country with 48.5 points per game, and tied for ninth with only 9.5 points allowed per game. The Horned Frogs’ defense also is sixth with 214 yards allowed per game, especially dominating on the passing side, allowing the eighth fewest in the NCAA this season. TCU CONTINUES ON 7

Documentary opens dialogue on suicide prevention SHELBY METZGER Lantern reporter metzger.348@osu.edu National Suicide Prevention Month stimulates discussion about the statistics surrounding suicide, but for film director Lisa Klein, numbers weren’t enough. She wanted to open a dialogue. In honor of World Suicide Prevention Day, Klein’s “The S-Word” — a documentary advocating suicide prevention — was screened at the Ohio Union on Monday. This event took place the night before an Ohio State student fell and died from the Lane Avenue Parking Garage on Tuesday morning. The film features the stories of two individuals who attempted suicide as well as people from a multitude of backgrounds who have

lost loved ones to suicide. It aims to expose suicide, which has long been viewed as a taboo subject, as a new topic of conversation. Klein said she used the documentary in an attempt to increase the dialogue surrounding suicide. The impact of suicide on her own life inspired her interest in prevention and education efforts. “When I was in college, both my brother and father died by suicide,” Klein said. “And, as you can imagine, it changed the course of my life.” Klein began using creative outlets to deal with the deaths of her family members. She began writing and created a film about bipolar disorder, “Of Two Minds,” in 2012. After finishing the film, she said she remembers thinking she was done with creating content SHELBY METZGER | LANTERN REPORTER surrounding mental health. Lisa Klein’s “S-Word” was shown at the Ohio Union Theater on Monday, Sept. DOCUMENTARY CONTINUES ON 7 10.t

“Grab my hand”

Campus event emphasizes safe spaces, communication, vulnerability in suicide prevention methods ATTIYYA TOURE Lantern reporter toure.20@osu.edu The Minority Ally Students in Healthcare gathered Tuesday for an interactive discussion about suicide prevention methods. The event, called “Grab My Hand,” focused on providing safe spaces for students to engage their peers if they feel they are at risk for suicide. Taylor Locke, a third-year in health information management and MASH president, said “Grab My Hand” was based in the principle of unity and helping to lift others. “‘Grab My Hand’ came from more of a ‘pull me up’ standpoint,” Locke said. “As far as ‘Hey, I’m doing fine, but you’re not, so grab my hand and we can be fine together.’” Locke said the event was planned and hosted in concordance with National Suicide Prevention Week. “We wanted to create a space for peers to come, hear some prevention tips and express themselves,” Locke said. Lisa Hayes, wellness advocate and licensed clinical social worker, was the featured guest speaker at the event. She stressed the importance of creating com-

munities for candid and direct dialogue. “We have this culture of politeness, or not wanting to get too close to people’s pain, or not wanting to have too much vulnerability, or not wanting to get too personal, but that’s actually not how human beings work,” Hayes said. She said people still struggle with emotional distress, even if they choose not

to talk about it. Hayes demonstrated the significance of open communication by prompting students to ask one another about their current emotional state. “People are real caught up in the ‘how to,’” Hayes said. “What I’m more concerned about is: Are we aware of our own vulnerability? Are we aware of when we need each other? Are we aware of how to

ask those questions?” Hayes further challenged students to take a closer look at their own mental states in order to be better equipped to help their peers. “That’s the culture to create in our communities, that’s the culture to create in our friendship groups and it’s the culture that’s relevant to what prevention truly is,” Hayes said, referring to the exercise. Hayes said it is important to take note of minority identities and experiences and that the historical and sociocultural lenses of those populations must be taken into account. “When we talk about resources and coping skills, we want to make sure that includes people’s lived experiences,” Hayes said. “For me, it’s probably the hardest thing to find safe spaces for [minorities].” Locke said it is important to push on this topic because people like to avoid uncomfortable conversations. “It doesn’t matter who you are, or where you come from,” Locke said. “Anybody can go through something like this.” JOIN OUR MAILING LIST

USG creates sustainable initiative for Ohio State fraternity block parties KATIE HAMILTON Arts & Life Director hamilton.1193@osu.edu Undergraduate Student Government has paired up with Ohio State fraternities to make football Saturdays more sustainable by providing recycling bins for aluminum cans at their block parties, events held by many fraternities before each home football game. Will Baumgart, USG deputy director of sustainability, said he noticed last football season the amount of waste generated from these events and wanted to make them more sustainably sound by giving fraternities the opportunity to recycle their aluminum cans. Baumgart said the initiative was set into motion for the second home game of the season. So far, Delta Sigma Phi, Theta Chi and Pi Kappa Phi are involved in the recycling initiative and Phi Gamma Delta and Sigma Phi Epsilon have expressed interest in participating in the future. Last Saturday, Baumgart said bins were brought to the fraternities, where they can be used the entire football season. Baumgart said clear bags will be provided to fraternities participating in the program and each Sunday designated members will take the bags to nearby Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO) bins. He said the USG sustainability committee worked with Kate Butler, the associate director of sorority and fraternity life, to create an incentive for fraternities to get involved. Participating fraternity members will be able to count their time spent working on this initiative toward their service hours. “Sustainability is an initiative across the university,

so from a student-life perspective it’s something we care about,” Butler said. Baumgart said the goal of this initiative is to create a program that consistently puts a sustainable use toward aluminum cans that will act as a stepping stone to create a more sustainable mindset for Ohio State’s off-campus

residents. “What would be really awesome is if we could start a program or a website where organizations, not even Greek organizations, say they’re having an off-campus event and want to collect all the recyclable goods from that,” Baumgart said. “They could just go on the website and put

Ohio State officially ranked No. 8 for veterans and military students XIAOHAN WU Lantern reporter wu.3313@osu.edu Ranked as the eighth-best college for veterans and military students in the United States by College Consensus in May, Ohio State aims to assist these groups in pursuing academic success and exploring a variety of career options. “We feel it’s in the best interest of Ohio State to put processes in place and make it easier for veteran and military members to go to school,” said Michael Forrest, director of the Office of Military and Veteran Services. “The bottom line for us is we want them to be academically successful.” Forrest said military students between 26 and 28 years old have trouble keeping up in school after returning from the Army. “They may not have been in a class since high school, so getting used to just being back in the classroom and then being around people who are younger and sometimes, in that process, you feel behind because you have never been doing it,” Forrest said. One way staff members have helped them overcome this obstacle is by offering tutoring in math, physics and English. “It’s one of the biggest things that I love about Ohio State,” said Gano Patel, a second-year in welding engineering who has a three-year contract left with Air National Guard. Along with catch-up classes, the Office of Military and Veterans Service hosts exclusive recreational events for military students, so they can feel create a community and build connections with each other. Patel said a lot of his friends at other universities have no one to talk to and there is no one telling them what they need to be doing, which would never happen in the military. “That’s why many of my friends feel lost and out of place after returning to civilian life,” Patel said. Compared with his friends’ experiences, Patel said he realized how many resources are available to him at Ohio State, such as having someone check with him on problems that might discourage or hold him back.

He said he takes part in the Community Advocates program, furthering his service for Ohio State and helping fellow veterans overcome adverse circumstances and move forward with their education. The Office of Military and Veterans Services will send out a survey in October to collect feedback from veteran students about possible improvements to current services offered at Ohio State. “We are not resting on it, but always trying for different things,” Forrest said.

“But I wasn’t,” Klein said. “I realized I needed to do this, I needed to do a film that dealt directly with suicide.” She wanted to talk to other survivors of loss and hear their stories while sharing her own. However, when directing the film, she uncovered something she never expected. “I found this thriving community of people who had attempted suicide and survived, and I just think their stories are so important because they provide hope,” Klein said. “They provide connections. They show people that they’re not alone.” Klein said she hoped the screening would help members of the community feel connected and remind them they aren’t alone. She also hoped it would give others a judgment-free outlet to talk about their own experiences with suicide and begin to break the silence that surrounds the issue. The screening was hosted by the Franklin County Suicide Prevention Coalition and The Ohio State University Suicide Prevention Program. Several other organizations were present at the showing, including Buckeye Campaign Against Suicide, a student group dedicated to suicide prevention. They hoped students would attend the screening and spread Klein’s message. “The aim of [the screening], of course, is to reach as many people as possible,” Samantha Woodring, co-president of BCAS, said. “I’m hoping that even though we can’t have the whole campus here, we’ll still be able to have the people who were here reach out and connect with other people.”

in the time that we’ll be collecting the cans, no questions asked.”

“In my opinon, sustainability is the No. 1 issue in the world,” Will Baumgart USG deputy director of sustainability

but one that he feels is worthwhile. “In my opinion, sustainability is the No. 1 issue in the world, so you got to start when people are at the most impactful and meaningful time of their lives,” Baumgart said. “If you can instill these habits of sustainable processes and sustainable thinking, it can propagate for their entire lives and teach it to their children.”

Baumgart said that the idea of having a zero-waste off-campus community will take a lot of time,

Titian’s painting “Portrait of a Lady in White” featured at the Columbus Museum of Art.

Columbus Museum unveils German masterpiece TRISTAN RELET-WERKMEISTER Lantern reporter relet-werkmeister.1@osu.edu

For its 140th anniversary, the Columbus Museum of Art has partnered with German museum Old Masters Picture Gallery to offer a new exhibition, featuring Titian’s painting “Portrait of a Lady in White.” The Renaissance painting has been transported from the Old Masters Picture Gallery, located in Dresden, Germany. This will be the first time the portrait has been exhibited in the Midwest. “[I came] to both be nourished and to reflect a bit about beauty,” said Thelma Wurzelbacher, a member of the Columbus Museum of Art. “Lady in White” is equally famous for its refinement and the mystery surrounding the identity of the woman portrayed: Was she Titian’s mistress, a courtesan, his daughter or just an idealized character? The portrait is believed to have been painted around

1561 in Venice, Italy. Due to financial hardship, the Italian owner was forced to sell it in the 1740s to the king of Poland living in Dresden. During World War II, the painting was moved out of Dresden to be protected from bombings, then sent to Moscow after the war — supposedly for preservation — and then finally returned to Dresden in 1955. In 2007, the “Portrait of a Lady in White” underwent a great conservation treatment which revitalized the original color of the white dress that had turned yellow by varnish and age. Having already seen the painting in Germany, Wurzelbacher, said she immediately noticed the change. “It makes a nice connection for me,” she said. Betty Kozlowski, a former faculty member at Ohio State and Columbus Museum of Art member, said she appreciates museums who allow their artwork to travel. “Both institutions benefit [from traveling exhibitions] because the painting can be appreciated and studied by so many more people,” Kozlowski said. A guest lecture from Stephan Koja, director of the part-

ner museum, was offered in Columbus to members and visitors to give more details about the masterpiece. He briefly explained Titian’s background, the Renaissance and analyzed the jewelry the lady in white is wearing. The white pearls on the golden ornaments complement the white of the dress. They are all the same size, and numerous: on the bracelets, the necklace, the earrings and the accessory in her hair. In reality, “Lady in White” could not have worn so many jewels at the time because sumptuary laws prohibited people from buying too many apparel luxury goods. Her dress is so precisely painted that it actually is an informal historic model for costume designers. A life-size replica has been made by a local dressmaker, who worked more than 200 hours to obtain a identical result. It is now part of the museum’s exhibition. The special exhibition “Titian’s Lady in White” will be displayed until Dec. 9. The museum’s general admission is free on Sundays, however an extra cost of $6 applies to the special exhibition.

Soca dancers celebrate Caribbean heritage KIERAN DUHL Lantern reporter duhl.12@osu.edu

A Caribbean dancer interacts with the audience during a performance.

Amid the brightly colored feathers, beads and rhinestones, the heavy drum beats of soca music will be heard throughout the Scioto Mile this weekend. On Saturday, the second annual Columbus Caribbean Festival will feature a team of soca dancers sharing a message of positivity and self-acceptance, while celebrating Caribbean culture. Soca describes a style of music and dance originating from the Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago. Soca is influenced by many styles of music — including reggae, calypso and afrobeats — giving it a diverse style. Similarly, the soca dancers who will be performing this weekend also are diverse. “With this group, it’s so many different shapes, sizes, shades, ages,” said Iman Clark, a third-year in dance and member of the soca dance team. “What we’re doing is for empowering women … we’re basically saying like ‘This is your body, so don’t be afraid to whine your hips.’” Although it is still fairly new, festival dance director Melinda Miranda is determined to impress the audiences. “This year is totally different,” Miranda said. “I felt like I had something to prove.” The former Ohio State dance student turned instructor has upgraded the apparel for this year’s show with the help of a new designer, Kristian England.

While Miranda choreographed the entire show herself last year, this year she decided to let individual dancers shine, giving them the opportunity to choreograph and perform solos while the rest of the dancers follow in the background. Miranda said her favorite part of teaching and sharing the culture of soca is the transformation she gets to witness within her students. “Soca just changes your life in general,” Miranda said. “Having confidence changes your life and that’s what it gives you.” The Columbus Caribbean Festival will take place at 4 p.m. on Friday, 11 a.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. on Sunday. Admission for the festival is free.

TEXAS FROM 8

es the spectacle local towns bring to high school football. “It’s a completely different feel down there,” Knox said. “Football, I mean Ohio State is Ohio State, but even high school football down there is big. The whole city shuts down, everything.” With the amount of attention recruits get at the high school level, the goal of many players is to get to AT&T Stadium, the home of the state championship games, an atmosphere Knox considers to be “incredible.” As Ohio State takes the field on Saturday, the same field that many high school players strive to be on in December, hoisting a state title trophy, Knox said watching a team that is known historically as one of the more elite teams in the country gives players the idea that they can be in the same position one day. “For recruits to be able to go down the street to the Cowboys Stadium to watch Ohio State play there in person, it’s huge,” Knox said. As for the Texans on Ohio State’s roster returning to their home state, that part of them never leaves, whether the team is playing in Arlington, Texas, or Ohio Stadium. “You don’t have to worry about getting homesick,” Okudah said. “You kind of feel you have a part of home with you to Ohio.”

Freshman forward Kayla Fischer (2) dribbles the ball upfield against Florida Gulf Coast University on Sept. 7. SOCCER FROM 8

Following her performance in Gainesville, Florida, Fischer received Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week and Co-Freshman of the Week honors. After facing Florida on the road, shortly to return home to a canceled match against Duquesne, Ohio State picked up its second-straight win of the year in a dominant fashion, defeating Morehead State 8-0 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. In the 41st, 68th and 73rd minutes of the game against Morehead State, Vatne notched three goals and scored the 15th hat trick in Ohio State history, earning her the Big Ten Freshman of the Week honor.

Vatne said every soccer player hopes to score goals on game day, but she never expected to score a hat trick. “It’s something everyone wants to do coming in,” Vatne said. “You kind of hope for that. But everyone is so good at this level so it’s kind of just an expectation to contribute your best and then see what happens from there. So, yeah, I wouldn’t really say that I expected to come in and score three goals in the game, but it still was cool nonetheless.” After the back-to-back wins, the Buckeyes came away with another victory in a 1-0 win over Notre Dame. Cowan scored her first collegiate goal in

the game against the Fighting Irish, marking the third straight game-winner by a Buckeye rookie. “I expected the college game to be a lot faster than high school and club,” Cowan said. “And it has taken some time to get used to. I’m trying to do whatever I can to help the team win.” With a season full of ups and downs thus far, the Buckeyes, and the three freshmen who have impressed to this point, enter Big Ten play this weekend and will look to upset Penn State, as they travel to Pennsylvania to take on the Nittany Lions at 6 p.m. on Friday.

Buckeyes head to Penn State to open Big Ten play CHARLIE MILITELLO Lantern reporter militello.15@osu.edu Following its 1-1 overtime draw on Tuesday against Bowling Green, the Ohio State men’s soccer team will try and build off its most effective offensive performance of the season when it travels to take on Penn State on Sunday afternoon. The Buckeyes seemed to look like a team that can create consistent offensive pressure, despite the stat sheet indicating that they came away with just two shots on goal. Sunday’s matchup with the Nittany Lions marks the beginning of Big Ten play for Ohio State, and the team knows that this match is not only critical for momentum on offense, but will also serve as a stepping stone for the Buckeyes’ season as a whole. “It’s Big Ten play. So now everybody’s, you know, starting from scratch, so again it’s a time where, you know, [we can] try to put everything together in terms of heading into Big Ten play,” head coach Brian Maisonneuve said. “Penn State at Penn State is going to be a battle. I mean they’re a very good team, and to play away at their place is always a tough spot.”

The Buckeyes have scored two goals in six games, while Penn State has managed three goals on just 12 shots on goal in its first five games.

“Now that we see it’s coming and finally, you know, clicking I think that we’re going to make some damage when we go to Penn State, and so we’re looking forward to it.” Joshua Jackson-Ketchup Sophomore forward/midfielder

Breaking a three-game scoreless drought and finding just their second goal of the season the players believe Tuesday’s draw will help them tremendously from a confidence standpoint this weekend. “Definitely it’s going to, you know, drive us and we’re definitely looking forward to going

away [to Penn State],” sophomore forward/midfielder Joshua Jackson-Ketchup said. “So now that we see it’s coming and finally, you know, clicking I think that we’re going to make some damage when we go to Penn State, and so we’re looking forward to it.” Penn State is a team in a similar

position to Ohio State. The Nittany Lions have a new coaching staff this season and hope to build and improve throughout head coach Jeff Cook’s first season at the helm. Also, both Ohio State and Penn State have struggled on offense in the nonconference portion of the season.

Penn State’s leading scorer is freshman forward Jeremy Rafanello, who has scored two goals on the season. Penn State redshirt sophomore goalkeeper Josh Levine has allowed an average of 1.17 goals per game this season while his counterpart on Sunday, redshirt junior goalkeeper Parker Siegfried, allows 0.98 goals against average between the pipes for the Buckeyes. Ohio State will face Penn State in University Park, Pennsylvania at 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Ohio State acting head coach Ryan Day watches the Buckeye defense in the second quarter of the game against Rutgers on Sept. 8. TCU FROM 1

TCU opened the season with a pair of wins, handily defeating both Southern 55-7 and SMU 42-12. However, the Horned Frogs started the SMU matchup down 9-0, then proceeded to pour on 42 of the next 45 points in a game featuring heavy rain from start to finish. Sophomore quarterback Shawn Robinson leads the TCU offense in multiple

ways, leading the team in both passing and rushing yards. Completing 62.3 percent of his passes, Robinson has thrown for 336 yards and four touchdowns, while also running for 112 yards and three touchdowns. “I think he’s a really elusive runner. He has a good arm; he can throw the ball down the field,” sophomore cornerback Jeffrey Okudah said. “Those running quarter-

Freshmen shine in nonconference play BAILEY SCHEUFLER Lantern reporter scheufler.7@osu.edu Entering its game against Florida, the Ohio State women’s soccer team had high expectations to bounce back after coming off of a pair of losses in the beginning of the season. Those expectations turned into freshmen Buckeyes, forward Kayla Fischer, forward Emaly Vatne and midfielder Blair Cowan scoring the game-winners against Florida, Morehead State and Notre Dame, respectively. Vatne said having freshmen score game-winners three games in a row displays a vast testament to the freshmen class.

COLIN GAY Sports Editor gay.125@osu.edu Demetrius Knox said he had the dream of playing football at Ohio State since he was in second grade. Being a Springfield, Ohio, native, the fifthyear offensive guard made that dream a reality with the help of a family member encouraging him to put himself in the middle of what many consider as a recruiting hotbed for high-level talent: Texas. “It was sixth-grade and my uncle told my mom that I’d have a better shot at being recruited for football if I moved down there,” Knox said. Since 2012, head coach Urban Meyer has placed a lot of emphasis on recruiting Texas during his tenure, signing 12 players from the state for eight seasons up to the 2019 class, with five-star wide receiver and Austin native Garrett Wilson committing to the Buckeyes in April. For many high school players, Ohio State has a reputation of being a national brand, as the program that groomed players such as running back Ezekiel Elliott and cornerback Marshon Lattimore into not only successful collegiate players, but successful professionals. “When you see that, even being in Texas, it kind of is appealing,” sophomore cornerback Jeffrey Okudah said. “Just want to be one of

the next guys in line.” Okudah was one of five players from the 2017 recruiting class from Texas to commit to the Buckeyes, including four-star running back J.K. Dobbins and five-star linebacker Baron Browning, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. For many players from the state of Texas, No. 4 Ohio State’s next opponent, No. 15 TCU, is a big game. Besides the fact that the school is in the state where these players were raised, many were recruited by the Horned Frogs.

“When you see that, even being in Texas, it kind of is appealing. Just want to be one of the next guys in line.” Jeffrey Okudah Ohio State sophomore cornerback

This game means more than just heading home for Dobbins. He will be facing a TCU team that was the first college to offer him a scholarship when he was a freshman in high school. “It was exciting,” Dobbins said. “It was my first one, so I was high on them, you know. I

“Everyone is so good at this level so it’s kind of just an expectation to contribute your best and then see what happens from there.”

know the coaches well, you know, so it’s going to be fun to play against them.” Despite schools like Texas trying to take the majority of in-state talent, Knox said TCU is almost always considered by any recruit who lives within the Dallas/Fort Worth area. He said even though the school is private and relatively small, it is considered a state “powerhouse.” For Okudah, playing TCU at AT&T Stadium means facing players he has faced before. While a senior cornerback at South Grand Prairie High School in Grand Prairie, Texas, Okudah faced Shawn Robinson, the quarterback at DeSoto High School in DeSoto, Texas, and now the sophomore starting quarterback at TCU. Even when facing him in high school, Okudah said he knew Robinson was an offensive weapon. “I think the offense he played in in high school really compares well to the offense he plays in now as far as going a lot of empties, spreading the ball around, get it out quick, taking shots and a lot of read option,” Okudah said. Okudah said players like Robinson were the norm on every Friday night, and he would face talent on that level on a weekly basis, and even a daily basis in practices. However, Knox said the level of talent, in the Dallas/Fort Worth area especially, match-

“The freshmen have really stepped up and taken on a big role of scoring goals,” Vatne said. “The seniors have been teaching us a lot and believing in us, so that’s played a huge part in why we’ve been able to step up and score.” After two consecutive losses to Duke and North Carolina on the road, Fischer led the Buckeyes to a 1-0 win over then-No. 5 Florida, firing a left-footed strike from 12 yards for her first career goal, bringing Ohio State to its first win of the season. Fischer said her goal against Florida increased her confidence after the losses to start the season. “It kind of brings you down when you don’t score,” Fischer said. “The Florida game definitely boosted our confidence and showed us that we can score.”
