Columbus protesters respond to Ferguson decision, demand change from Columbus police

November 26, 2014
A sensory overload had developed on the streets of Downtown Columbus Tuesday night in the name of Mike Brown and the Ferguson, Mo., uprising. Lights from police cars flashed as the cruisers blocked then-busy Broad Street, Columbus protesters initiated their first Ferguson-influenced action hollering “Hands up! Don’t Shoot!” or “No Justice, no peace! No racist police!” The event was led by several organizers, beginning with some statements near the Franklin Park Amphitheater. Michael Brown, an 18-year-old black man, was fatally shot by police officer Darren Wilson during the day in Ferguson, Mo. on Aug. 9. Brown was unarmed. Wilson said Brown had been uncooperative after he suspected Brown had stole… Read more

November 28, 2014
The Ohio State men’s basketball team missed back-to-back 3-pointers to start the game, but the Buckeyes never relinquished their lead after Marc Loving connected from deep on their third possession. Loving — a sophomore forward — made another long ball less than three minutes later before the Buckeyes (5-0) opened up an 11-point lead just over five minutes into their 73-56 win against James Madison (4-2) on Friday at the Schottenstein Center. OSU led by double digits for the final 34:57 of the contest. But despite the perpetual lead, the Buckeyes allowed the Dukes to move within 10 at the half and struggled to shoot the ball throughout the game… Read more

Effort to Beat Michigan gets crafty

November 25, 2014
While many Ohio State students take pride in the Mirror Lake jump in anticipation of Saturday’s football game against Michigan, others choose to stay inside and craft with their Buckeye pride in mind.  On Sunday, OSU football fans gathered in the Archie Griffin Grand Ballroom West at the Ohio Union to attend the Beat Michigan Craft Night, an Ohio Union Activities Board-sponsored event.

Opinion: Ohio State shouldn’t wear alternate uniforms against Michigan

November 27, 2014
The Ohio State-Michigan rivalry is known for its tradition. From the infamous 10-10 tie in 1973, to former coach Woody Hayes’ refusal to buy Michigan gasoline, to Desmond Howard striking the Heisman Trophy pose in the end zone, The Game is full of tradition. And traditionally speaking, both schools have kept their uniforms virtually the same for nearly 60 years, if not longer. Yes, both teams have made slight changes over the decades, but nothing dramatic. Before OSU began wearing these retro throwback jerseys when facing Michigan, fans across college football would see those scarlet and gray helmets line up against those maize and blue helmets, and they knew exactly… Read more

November 26, 2014
The decision of the grand jury in the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown has sparked a clear outrage throughout America.
