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.

Podcast: The Fantasy Doctors (week 13)

November 25, 2014
and
In a highly important week of fantasy football, we have an exciting group of waiver wire players unlike the last few weeks. The past few weeks have been somewhat of slow waiver wires, and much like the actual NFL season, the fantasy season is picking up as well. With the fantasy playoffs just a week away, the pick-ups are as important as ever. The headliners this week include LeGarrette Blount, Boom Herron and Latavius Murray. With LeGarrette back in New England, it’s hard not to have him in your starting lineup. Boom Herron is a high prospect once again based off of Trent Richardson’s poor efficiency. Along with those jackpots,… Read more

Students tear fences down, jump in Mirror Lake early

November 25, 2014
and
  For a while, it seemed as though the ducks might make more of a splash than any students. Last year, students jumped in the lake a night early in response to a university policy change that required them to get wristbands to enter the Mirror Lake area for the traditional jump before the Michigan game. There were also fences erected around the area prohibiting entry. This year, students also jumped a night early, on Monday, to protest the fences and wristbands. As of Monday evening, more than 380 people had responded to a Facebook event for “Mirror Lake Monday” saying they were going. The event was slated to occur… 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.

A moment from WWII still rings strongly for alumnus ‘Doc’ Allen 70 years later

November 25, 2014
By the time the 1940 football season came around, William “Bill” Nosker was one of the most experienced members of the Ohio State football team. He was a regular starter at guard on the 1938 and ‘39 teams, the latter of which won the school’s first outright Big Ten title since Nosker was 1 year old.  He contributed to an OSU team that went 4-4 in 1940, but shortly after the season ended, he would no longer be a student. During his senior year, he decided to enlist in the Air Force, for reasons he held close to his heart. At that time, nobody knew him better than his then-future… Read more
