Ohio State seeks dismissal of Jonathan Waters’ lawsuit

October 23, 2014
After remaining mostly mum since being sued by former marching band director Jonathan Waters, Ohio State said it’s seeking to dismiss Waters’ lawsuit. OSU filed a motion in federal court Wednesday to dismiss and respond to the lawsuit Waters brought against the university. OSU said Waters was terminated July 24 because he knew of a problematic, sexually charged culture in the marching band and didn’t address the problems, according to a Thursday release. The filings also say Waters was an at-will employee who was subject to termination without cause. “He knew the problematic culture of the band well, but failed to adequately or appropriately fulfill his obligation to meaningfully address… Read more

Podcast: Fantasy Doctors week 8

October 22, 2014
No surprise at all, this week we focus on the Percy Harvin trade and how it affects his value as well as Seattle’s other wide receivers. In the shocking trade that sent Harvin to the Jets, one has to think that maybe — just maybe — this will be the spark for Percy that will finally propel him to be relative in fantasy again. He has been disappointing this season to say the least, but now he has a new opportunity. It appears the Jets plan to use him as a more classic wide receiver and line him up out wide, as opposed to trying to use him in space.… Read more

Review: Tune-Yards’ performance a fantastical oddity

October 21, 2014
The performance that Tune-Yards gave at the Newport was a force to be reckoned with. The experimental pop group took to the stage Monday night only months after coming through Columbus as an opener for Arcade Fire. Every member of the band on stage was clad in bright neon patterns and colors — and every one of them wielded a percussion instrument of some kind. They stood in front of a wild backdrop covered in eyes and teeth, eventually donning eyes on their own clothes. Coupling all of this with the lights and the music gave the performance a surreal, alien aesthetic. Merrill Garbus, the spearhead who started Tune-Yards as… Read more

Derrick Rose steals the show; LeBron, Cavs take the game

October 20, 2014
Even though it wasn’t a regular season game, NBA action at the Schottenstein Center was in full swing as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Chicago Bulls on Monday night, 107-98. The player many people undoubtedly came to see — Cavs forward LeBron James — did not disappoint as the Akron native totaled 18 points on 6-of-11 shooting to go along with seven rebounds and six assists in 32 minutes of play. James said playing in front of the Central Ohio crowd was special. “It was great, it was great to be here. It is great to have these fans and for us to put on a show for them,” James… Read more

12 Ohio State students evacuated after off-campus apartment fire

For Samuel Massari, a fifth-year in computer science and engineering, Sunday morning’s wake up call came a little sooner than expected.  “We all were asleep, and somebody was pounding on our doors and windows. We assumed it was drunk kids so I went out to tell them to stop,” he said. That’s when Massari realized there was no joke, but rather a fire that would later temporarily evict him from his off-campus residence. “When I opened the door, there was a guy standing there saying I needed to get out, and I looked behind him and the whole porch was ablaze,” he said. That off-campus apartment fire — which forced… Read more

Construction hinders North Campus businesses

October 19, 2014
One-lane roads and sidewalk closures are prompting some drivers and students to avoid the North Campus area during construction on the residence halls, leaving some local business managers unahppy. Mike Sanda, manager of Noodles and Company located at 2124 N. High St., said in years before the construction started, business would boom when students returned to campus in the fall. This year, however, things are drastically different. “Rather than a 100 percent increase, it has only been a 75 percent increase in sales since the start of school,” he said. Many businesses see an increase on Ohio State football gamedays, as students walk and meet friends before attending the game,… Read more
