Russell exits early as Ohio State routs Nebraska, 81-57, with Phil Jackson looking on

February 26, 2015
With arguably the greatest basketball coach in recent memory watching courtside, the Ohio State men’s basketball team got back on track at the Schottenstein Center. The Buckeyes (20-8, 9-6) bounced back from back-to-back losses in emphatic fashion, defeating the Nebraska Cornhuskers, 81-57, Thursday night. Playing in OSU’s first home game in more than two weeks, freshman forward Jae’Sean Tate said it felt good to be back in front of a home crowd. “It definitely feels good to be home. It feels like we haven’t been home in forever. But I just think the team buckled down,” he said. “We needed this win and we just came together and started playing… Read more

Writers’ Block open mic keeps the poems flowing at Kafe Kerouac

February 26, 2015
At the front of the line of people waiting to pay $5 to get into Kafe Kerouac’s intimate and book-filled performance space, a man asked, “Will I be able to get back in if I leave to smoke a cigarette?” The woman collecting people’s money while taking the names of the night’s poets responded quickly: “Nope. Because once I take your five dollars, I’m going to take you to the back and chain you up.” There was a pause, then the man responded with, “Does that cost extra?” That woman is Vernell Bristow, who graduated in 1995 from Ohio State with master’s degrees in African-American studies and English literature, and… Read more

‘The Snapchat Collaborative’ makes the temporary permanent

February 23, 2015
“It’s a classy event. There’s Franzia in the kitchen,” Michelle Kusold told attendees as they entered the opening of The Gallery’s exhibition “The Snapchat Collaborative.” “The Snapchat Collaborative” has been a year-long project for Kusold, a fourth-year in computer science & engineering, and her housemate Janelle Bouchard, a fourth-year in psychology. They took hundreds of screenshots of their friends’ “snaps” with a plan to make the normally temporal memories last more than 10 seconds. The two then paid for 4-by-6 inch matte prints of their favorites, 358 in total, and “curated” them into an exhibition. Kusold said they spent four days whittling the collection down from about 800 photos. The… Read more

What’s it take for OSU to cancel classes? It depends

February 18, 2015
With temperatures falling well below zero Thursday, many Ohio State students called for classes to be canceled. The National Weather Service predicted a high temperature of 4 degrees and a low of minus 11, with a windchill as low as minus 22 degrees. Although it’s rare for OSU, canceling class is not unprecedented. Last year, classes were called off for three days. The low temperature was at least minus 7 each time. Administration and Planning spokesman Dan Hedman said before last year, a full day of classes had not been canceled since 2009. Overall, OSU has only canceled classes on roughly 11 occasions since 1978. Bob Armstrong, the director of… Read more

Student Legal Services brings advice to over 11K

February 18, 2015
It took Matthew Tatoczenko and his two roommates a little more than a month to get what they thought was their full security deposit refund on their Worthington Street apartment owned by NorthSteppe Realty. The tenants were originally supposed to get back $1,250, said Tatoczenko, a fourth-year in computer science and engineering, but they only got $770 back after the landlords said they needed the rest for cleaning fees. After thinking more about the situation, the roommates decided to contact Student Legal Services to help them file a lawsuit, which they won. Since its start in 2011, SLS has provided legal services for more than 11,300 students. About 34 percent… Read more

Opinion: Where will Buckeyes at the Scouting Combine fall in the 2015 NFL Draft?

February 16, 2015
For four now-former Ohio State football players, the next chapters of their football careers are just around the corner. Tight end Jeff Heuerman, cornerback Doran Grant, wide receiver Devin Smith and defensive lineman Michael Bennett all earned invitations to the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine, set to begin Tuesday. Where will these former Buckeyes land? It all starts in Indianapolis.   Jeff Heuerman Heuerman, who was tabbed as the second-best tight end prospect by ESPN football analyst Mel Kiper before the 2014 season, might have fallen since that time because of a drop-off in production from the 2013 season. The Florida native, who caught 26 passes for 466 yards and four scores… Read more

Reeling Ohio State men’s hockey team splits weekend series with Wisconsin

February 15, 2015
Times have been tough for the Ohio State men’s hockey team, as the Buckeyes split a weekend series with Wisconsin, hurting their chances at earning a higher seed in the conference tournament. Going into the series, coach Steve Rohlik told the team he wanted it to play with a playoff mentality. “You know it’s all about getting better, and when we talk about playoff mentality, the NHL season is a long grind and you see what happens in the playoffs. It’s the ultimate sport to watch in the playoffs and I said, ‘That is the mentality you have to have,’” Rohlik said. But even with that mentality, the Buckeyes followed… Read more
