Illegally downloading media on Ohio State’s Wi-Fi has consequences

November 24, 2014
If you’ve been downloading music illegally on campus, you might want to think again — there are companies watching. While OSU’s wireless Internet is commonly used by OSU students to study, it’s also often abused. Pirating is an issue that OSU has to deal with, although a spokeswoman from the Office of the Chief Information Officer said the office does not supervise what students are looking up. “We do not monitor students’ Internet traffic. We do monitor anything that accesses known dangerous websites that would indicate that a computer is compromised (web based botnets, for instance), but we aren’t watching what sites people go to,” said Katharine Keune, a spokeswoman… Read more

Urban Meyer: ‘This is not another game, this is The Game’

November 24, 2014
With a spot in the Big Ten Championship Game locked up and a 42-27 win against Indiana in the rearview mirror, Urban Meyer and Ohio State have their sights set on archrival Michigan. Meyer — entering his third Michigan week as the Buckeyes’ coach — met with the media on Monday to discuss The Game and what it means to everyone involved, and also touched on some key points from OSU’s Saturday win over the Hoosiers. Meyer said he is “very pleased” to have another crack at the Big Ten title game this season. He said junior offensive lineman Taylor Decker, redshirt-sophomore offensive lineman Pat Elflein, senior wide receivers Evan… Read more

Ohio State’s Jalin Marshall named Big Ten Freshman of the Week

November 24, 2014
An Ohio State football player has been named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week for the seventh time this season, but this time, it’s not redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett. Redshirt-freshman H-back Jalin Marshall picked up the first Big Ten weekly award of his career after scoring four total touchdowns — all in the second half — during the Buckeyes’ 42-27 win against Indiana on Saturday. The former high school quarterback returned a punt 54 yards for a touchdown late in the third quarter before scoring three touchdowns off passes from Barrett in the fourth quarter. He finished the day with five receptions for 95 yards and tallied a total… Read more

Columbus shops collaborate to create coffee trail

November 24, 2014
For the love of coffee. That’s what it all brews down to on the Columbus Coffee Trail. “We all love coffee and we all love each other’s coffee,” said Mick Evans, co-owner of the Short North’s One Line Coffee and co-founder of the Columbus Coffee Trail. And it’s because of that love that a total of 12 Columbus coffee shops owned by seven “competing” companies have teamed up to make the Columbus Coffee Trail. The concept of the trail is relatively simple: customers pick up a card at one of the participating stores and then buy a drink or food item at four or more locations. At each stop, customers… Read more

Restaurant review: DareDevil Dogs offers big taste in small location

November 24, 2014
It’s a small restaurant, but DareDevil Dogs made a big impact Friday with its grand opening just south of campus. When I say small, I mean it. The hot dog joint’s dining room has a total of 12 seats, all lining the walls of the restaurant. In months leading up to the opening, co-owner Tomos Mughan said he and his partners were aiming to bring a vintage feel to the 1437 N. High St. location — and I believe they did just that. The exposed brick and raw metal materials on the walls go hand-in-hand with the restaurant’s “be daring” concept.  It was bustling with eager customers. With the amount… Read more

Opinion: Black Friday encroaching on Thanksgiving is a bummer

November 24, 2014
Last time I checked, Friday ­— just like any other day — lasts 24 hours: from midnight to 11:59 p.m. But each year, “Black Friday” sales start earlier and earlier, encroaching upon Thanksgiving — a time ideally spent reflecting upon life’s (unmaterialistic) blessings. Sales used to start at midnight, then a few started an hour or two earlier than that to get ahead of their competitors. Now it’s starting to cycle out of control. For instance, Macy’s and Kohl’s are set to open at 6 p.m. (at most locations) on Thanksgiving, according to their respective websites. Last year, their sales started at 8 p.m., according to an article from USA… Read more

Letter to the editor: Ohio State alumnus imprisoned in Egypt deserves more help

November 21, 2014
Letter to the editor: Mohamed Soltan will die soon. If no one with actual power moves to help him, he will die as a result of the last-ditch hunger strike he began in January. Soltan will starve to death, the victim of one government that has lost all respect for humanity, fair laws and justice, and another government that does not care to help one of its sons. Why is no one doing anything? Mohamed Soltan is an American citizen. Where is his country? He’s an OSU alumnus. Why aren’t other Buckeyes speaking up? In September, President Barack Obama met with Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi. He was in a… Read more

Ohio State women’s basketball tops VCU 96-86; Amy Scullion returns

November 24, 2014
In a tight contest, the Ohio State women’s basketball team defeated Virginia Commonwealth after pulling away late in the game. OSU junior guard Ameryst Alston got the action started with a quick layup in the opening seconds of the 96-86 win. Both teams shot the ball well through the first six minutes as the game was tied, 20-20. Then a jumper from freshman guard Kelsey Mitchell sparked a 19-7 run over a span of nine minutes to take a 39-27 lead for the Buckeyes. Virginia Commonwealth outscored OSU, 16-13, in the last 5:48 of the half to make the score 52-43 as the teams headed to the locker room. The… Read more

Ohio State men’s hockey splits weekend series with Michigan State

November 24, 2014
The Ohio State men’s hockey team played a desperate brand of hockey for the entirety of its game against Michigan State on Friday night. The effort was much needed as the Buckeyes (4-7-1, 1-1-0) had dropped four of their past five games before their 3-0 win against the Spartans in Columbus. “I thought we worked hard again tonight,” OSU coach Steve Rohlik said. “I tip my cap to our guys … we challenged them to get a little bit better and I think (they) did that as a team.” Pace was the difference maker in the Buckeyes’ second conference game of the season as they hounded the Spartans (4-7-0, 1-1-0)… Read more
