Ohio State trounces Kent State, 66-0, week after loss

September 13, 2014
  One week removed from its first loss of the season, the Ohio State football team jumped out to a 21-0 first-quarter lead on its way to beating Kent State, 66-0. The Buckeyes scored less than two minutes into the game to start things off before scoring touchdowns on six of eight first-half drives Saturday at Ohio Stadium. OSU coach Urban Meyer credited the win partially to the Buckeyes’ advantage in the talent column, and added his team needed a big game coming off a 35-21 loss to Virginia Tech on Sept. 6. “I thought our guys played well,” Meyer said after the win. “Obviously a little talent advantage, but… Read more

Gov. John Kasich: ‘If you have hopes and dreams, follow them’

September 8, 2014
Gov. John Kasich returned to his alma mater to encourage students to follow their dreams before addressing the topic of jobs and answering questions about the cost of higher education Monday evening. “When you find your purpose in life, you will find the key to satisfaction and happiness,” Kasich said to a crowd of about 280 at the Ohio Union. He spoke during a campaign kickoff event for OSU College Republicans on Monday night, and he kept his speech light — standing on stage without a tie and opening with a joke about how all freshmen in attendance should be at home studying. He focused on finding direction in life,… Read more

Review: Twenty One Pilots in finest form at hometown show

September 8, 2014
  Pre-teens, post grads, parents, and everyone in between packed into the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion Thursday night for a home-grown favorite. Twenty One Pilots, a disproportionately named alternative pop duo from Columbus, sold out the first show of their 2014 Quiet is Violent tour, with a second show Friday sold out as well. Opening for the band was Vinyl Theatre, which at first I thought was a surprising choice, given Twenty One Pilots’ rising reputation and fan base. I thought that surely, for a sold out show at home, they could have produced a more well known opener – but it turns out they knew exactly what they were doing.… Read more

Review: The Black Keys give memorable performance at the Schott

September 8, 2014
The Schottenstein Center was feeling anything but blue Friday night as thousands of adoring fans flocked to take in The Black Keys’ Columbus stop on the band’s Turn Blue tour. Cage The Elephant provided a very complementary opening act with a very, very high energy performance. This 5-member powerhouse looked like it walked straight out of a high-end vintage boutique with the group’s short-sleeved button ups, blazers and loafers. I got there with about 30 minutes left in the set, so the band was just starting to bring out the big guns. “Cigarette Daydream,” “Wicked” and “Back Against the Wall” really got the crowd going and in fact, at some … Read more

Ohio State loses first home opener in 36 years, 35-21, against Virginia Tech

September 7, 2014
In front of a record crowd at Ohio Stadium, the Ohio State football team lost its first home opener since 1978. OSU fell to Virginia Tech, 35-21, in front of 107,517 spectators after winning its first home game in each of the past 35 seasons. The game marked the first regular-season loss for the Buckeyes since coach Urban Meyer took over before the 2012 season. After the game, Meyer thanked the Ohio Stadium crowd and had praise for Virginia Tech. “Our opponent really did a good job preparing for us and exposed us a little bit, where some of the weaknesses right now on our team are,” he said. “And… Read more

Redshirt-freshmen lead Ohio State to 34-17 win against Navy

August 30, 2014
BALTIMORE –– In the first game since senior quarterback Braxton Miller was ruled out for the season, two redshirt-freshmen boosted the Ohio State football team to a 34-17 win against Navy. After a low-scoring first half that saw the Midshipmen take a 7-6 lead, redshirt-freshman linebacker Darron Lee and redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett each accounted for second-half touchdowns in the team’s season opener Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium. Lee picked up a fumble and took it 61 yards to the end zone before Navy junior quarterback Keenan Reynolds scored to end a four-play, 84-yard drive. OSU coach Urban Meyer said he believed Lee’s touchdown was a key to the Buckeyes… Read more

Review: Ohio State students welcomed back to campus ‘Safe and Sound’

August 30, 2014
The “welcome” was loud and clear. Ohio State students flocked on Friday to see live performances from Captain Kidd, GRiZ and Capital Cities at the Ohio Union Activities Board-sponsored 2014 Welcome Week Concert, which was held on the now construction-free South Oval for the first time since 2010. The crowd quickly drew in when Captain Kidd — comprised of fourth-years Nate Baumgard, Eric Blaha, Nick Samson and Stew Weinland and second-year Andrew Gutierrez — opened the event with a cover of Phoenix’s “1901” and took the stage with its alternative style and musical accuracy. The band’s set introduced students to the atmosphere and music that would continue to be heard… Read more
