Board of Trustees recognizes national championship win, creates new college, passes 18 resolutions

January 30, 2015
Ohio State’s Board of Trustees kicked off the final meeting of the week with recognition of the national championship win and the work of a former senator and astronaut on Friday. “I can’t imagine a better illustration of what this university is about than to celebrate a national championship… and Sen. John Glenn,” Board of Trustees Chairman Jeffrey Wadsworth said. National Championship OSU co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell addressed the Board of Trustees, along with four players, expressing his thanks to the school, fans, and the board. “On behalf of Coach Meyer, myself, and the entire football team, we want to thank you guys,” Fickell said. “It was… Read more

Board of Trustees discusses national championship royalties, construction to School of Music

January 29, 2015
A national championship win is paying off for Ohio State. Ohio State’s royalty revenues have increased by $3 million to $4 million after the national championship win, associate vice president for Student Life Xen Riggs said at a Board of Trustees finance committee meeting on Thursday. He said the amount of apparel sold after OSU’s football team beat Oregon, 42-20, on Jan. 12 was on par with apparel sales for the winning team of the Super Bowl. Riggs, who manages affinity partnerships for the university, also talked about how OSU’s private contracts are drawing attention nationwide. The university has more than $683 million in private contracts with companies such as… Read more

Russell, Loving lead Buckeyes to blowout of No. 16 Maryland, 80-56

January 29, 2015
Another slow start and another ink-drying night for D’Angelo Russell. It’s become the norm for the Ohio State men’s basketball team as the freshman guard filled up the box score and led the Buckeyes to a 80-56 win against No. 16 Maryland on Thursday night at the Schottenstein Center. Freshman forward Jae’Sean Tate said the victory was a result of OSU’s best performance of the season. “We had great energy from the start. I think this was the best start we’ve gotten off to in a while,” Tate said after the game. “Great energy off the bench, everybody just played hard and played their role.” Russell totaled 18 points, 14… Read more

New lineup brings results as Buckeyes win 3rd-straight game

January 29, 2015
The Ohio State men’s basketball team stood at 14-5, 3-3 just eight days ago when coach Thad Matta decided to make a change to the starting lineup. Since then, the Buckeyes are 3-0, including back-to-back wins against top-25 teams at home, the most recent an 80-56 shellacking of the No. 16 Maryland Terrapins on Thursday night. Matta flipped senior center Amir Williams and sophomore forward Marc Loving in favor of redshirt-senior forward Anthony Lee and freshman forward Jae’Sean Tate, and the Buckeyes haven’t looked back. Matta said the reason for the switch was more a matter of Tate’s improved play than a lack of contribution from Loving. “We felt that… Read more

Columbus beer fans can celebrate the end of January indoors this weekend at the fifth annual Columbus Winter Beerfest. The Columbus Winter Beerfest will feature more than 350 craft beers, featuring both local and national breweries. The event’s website gives interested drinkers a full beer list, detailing the brewery, its location, beer, style and alcohol by volume of the selected taps. One of the event’s organizers said Columbus has seen major growth in the craft beer scene over the years, a trend that can be seen on a larger scale as well. “Ohio’s craft beer (scene) in general has exploded,” Columbus Winter Beerfest director of events Craig Johnson said.

Sculptures jump, swing from the rafters in Ohio Union

January 29, 2015
Earlier this month, the Ohio Union got a high-flying addition. Looking up toward the ceiling of the Great Hall, one might notice two white figures posing in the rafters. These figures are sculptures titled “Circus Acrobats,” created by pop art sculptor George Segal. The piece was a permanent donation to Ohio State by the George and Helen Segal Foundation and was installed Jan. 5. “Circus Acrobats” follows the style of many of Segal’s most famous works, which are castings. He used bronze to cast the models in sections and then let them harden. After taking the hardened molds off, he would form them back together to create his sculptures. In… Read more

Letter from the editor: The way interviews with Ohio State administrators are run

January 29, 2015
President Michael Drake paid a visit to The Lantern’s newsroom earlier this week. In light of that, I thought it would be worthwhile to share the way we conduct these types of interviews in the hopes of opening that door to our readers and making the process more transparent. The way that we’ve conducted these interviews in the time I’ve been on The Lantern’s staff — since fall 2012 — is about the same way that we did this time. About once per semester, sometimes more and sometimes less, the president, or occasionally an Ohio State administrator, schedules a time with us when they’ll come to our newsroom for an… Read more

Opinion: Pope right to warn against breeding ‘like rabbits’: Overpopulation is a serious issue

January 29, 2015
In light of a few words recently uttered by the great Pope Francis, I’d like to take this opportunity to write about the very serious issue of overpopulation. While it’s true that I would feel much more comfortable discussing Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards or Taylor Swift’s recently discovered belly button, I think this is important. Besides, Pope Francis is basically Beyoncé for Catholic people, right? It’s like pop culture for sheltered parochial school students. The Pope recently commented that in order to be “good Catholics,” people need not feel the urge to breed “like rabbits.” I give major props to the guy for tossing out that colloquial phrase, but… Read more

D’Angelo Russell double-double leads Ohio State past No. 23 Indiana, 82-70

January 25, 2015
The script was the same, and for the second game in a row it was a happy ending for the Ohio State men’s basketball team. The Buckeyes started slow, trailing 9-2 in the opening minutes, but fought back at home to upset the visiting No. 23 Indiana Hoosiers, 82-70, on Sunday at the Schottenstein Center. Senior guard Shannon Scott said the recent success by opposing teams in the early going against the Buckeyes has been frustrating. “For some reason everyone starts out hot on us,” Scott said after the game. “I think we did a great job of not getting frustrated about that. I think we did a great job… Read more
