TBDBITL Alumni Club applauds Montgomery Report findings

December 22, 2014
TBDBITL Alumni Club said they approve of conclusions found by a second cultural investigation into Ohio State’s marching band, but think the investigation’s report should have been issued prior to the 2014 marching band season, according to a Monday release from the club. Former Ohio Attorney General Betty Montgomery was appointed by President Michael Drake and the Board of Trustees to lead the Marching Band Culture Task Force in July. It was commissioned to conduct an assessment of the OSU Marching Band’s culture and to review the university’s oversight of the band. The task force was also asked to provide counsel on Title IX compliance issues. Title IX states schools… Read more

Ohio State professor David Steigerwald urges grads to push past clichés at Autumn Commencement

December 21, 2014
Drawing inspiration from advice he received from students, Ohio State history professor David Steigerwald addressed approximately 2,332 graduates at OSU’s Autumn Commencement Sunday at the Schottenstein Center. “I looked for help by reading dozens and dozens of previous commencement addresses,” Steigerwald said of preparing his commencement speech. “One thing was missing — they all seemed directed to students rather than drawn from them.” To break out of this pattern, Steigerwald said he asked students to share with him what they wished to hear. Many answered that they were tired of clichés and wanted Steigerwald to “make (the speech) real,” he said. “You are so past clichés,” Steigerwald said. “I am… Read more

Ohio State women’s basketball set for matchup with No. 22 West Virginia

December 22, 2014
With the Big Ten season around the corner, the Ohio State women’s basketball team is set to end its non-conference season on a high note against No. 22 West Virginia. The Buckeyes (7-4) and Mountaineers (9-1) are set to complete a home-and-home series dating back to last season, in which the Buckeyes won in Morgantown, W.Va., 70-61. Following that game, the Mountaineers would go on to win 17 of their next 18 games. Sophomore forward Shayla Cooper said she hopes to make a big impact in her first game for the Buckeyes. “I’m looking to bring a lot of energy, a lot more rebounding,” Cooper said. Cooper, a transfer from… Read more

No. 12 Ohio State men’s basketball team falls to No. 24 North Carolina, 82-74

December 20, 2014
Playing away from Columbus for just the second time this season, the No. 12 Ohio State men’s basketball team fell on the road again, this time to the No. 24 North Carolina Tar Heels in Chicago, 82-74. OSU is now 0-2 against ranked teams this season, as it fell to then-No. 5 Louisville, 64-55, on Dec. 2. Just like in the loss to the Cardinals, the Buckeyes fell down by a lot, only to make a second half comeback that fell short. Down by as much as 18 with 10:41 left to play in the game, OSU cut the Tar Heel lead to seven with 1:19 left to play, but… Read more

Ohio State professor: History has well written the dangers of climate change

December 18, 2014
Turn on the news, open your laptop: A resounding sense of calamity and crisis — foreboding headlines of climate change, terrorism and that fear-mongering favorite, Ebola — will greet you like a swift slap to the face. And yet against this backdrop of increasingly global, ever-urgent crises, Ohio State professor and acclaimed historian Noel Geoffrey Parker looks to the past — to eerily similar parallels in history. His most recent work, “The Global Crisis: War, Climate Change and Catastrophe in the Seventeenth Century,” was recently awarded the British Academy Medal, an annual recognition of “landmark academic achievement” by the British Academy for the Humanities and Social Sciences. The book, which… Read more

LaRosa’s Columbus entrance a sentimental addition for Cincinnati natives

December 18, 2014
Adriatico’s, Domino’s, Papa John’s, Catfish Biff’s — need I go on? The campus presence of pizza is undoubted: it is a downright staple, as essential and ubiquitous as bread or eggs. And with the prominent, Cincinnati-based franchise LaRosa’s now on the Columbus pizza radar, students and city-dwellers alike have yet another venue to choose from. Having opened its doors on Nov. 24, LaRosa’s Family Pizzeria is nestled in Dublin, Ohio — a northern Columbus suburb — at 7048 Hospital Drive, Avery Square. It is the first Columbus location for the franchise, whose growing presence includes more than 60 pizzerias across Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. So what, exactly, differentiates LaRosa’s from… Read more

Editorial: Ohio State community deserves answers from editorial board interview with President Michael Drake

December 9, 2014
Editorial: The Ohio State president won’t be coming in for an editorial board meeting with The Lantern this semester, for the first time in at least six years. Because of scheduling troubles and President Michael Drake’s transition, we were unable to set a date with OSU that suited both parties for the semesterly interview. OSU offered a half-hour slot from 3-3:30 p.m. on Dec. 9, but The Lantern has historically had an hour with presidents in the past and doesn’t have a print issue after the one that’s on stands Tuesday until Jan. 12.  We asked on Nov. 12 for another date. When following up last week, The Lantern was… Read more

Letter to the editor: Ohio State tasked with representing Big Ten in Sugar Bowl

December 9, 2014
Letter to the editor: So tired of the Southeastern Conference schools pumping their chests. So tired of the “Roll Tide” nonsense. This is your time, Buckeye fans. Your defense is playing unconscious. All the talk is about Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper. Ohio State wide receiver Devin Smith is just as effective as a game changer.  I am a Penn State alumnus. The one game on our schedule that is a must-win is OSU. That is because State College, Pa., respects Columbus and the rivalry. I am pulling for the Bucks. I hope your squad goes out and represents the conference, and shuts up the haters who say Big Ten… Read more

December 17, 2014
A change of scenery didn’t seem to affect the No. 12 Ohio State men’s basketball team as it rolled to yet another blowout victory, extending its record to 9-1 on the season. Playing a home game down the road at Nationwide Arena in downtown Columbus, the Buckeyes jumped out to a 17-2 lead and didn’t look back as they defeated the North Carolina A&T Aggies, 97-55, Wednesday night. The early run by OSU was started by sophomore forward Marc Loving, who buried a  three-pointer to open the scoring.
