Ohio State baseball takes 2 of 3 in weekend series against Penn State

April 14, 2014
The Ohio State baseball team (21-15, 4-8) got back on track with a weekend series victory at home against Penn State. The bats woke up in a big way for the final two games of the three-game series — both victories for OSU — and coach Greg Beals credited the lineup change and the wind for helping out the offense. “When the wind is blowing, it really helps the mentality of the hitters,” Beals said. “And we’ve been talking mentality and maybe it took the wind blowing to get them going a little bit and get that mentality at game time to attack.” Sunday’s game began with the Buckeyes jumping… Read more

April 13, 2014
A season-high 1,598 fans packed themselves inside Buckeye Field to watch the Ohio State softball team try and win its third Big Ten series of the season. After splitting game one and two of its weekend series against Purdue on Friday and Saturday, the crowd was roaring and the bleachers were shaking throughout all of Sunday’s exciting rubber match. But despite a late rally by OSU (20-20, 6-6) against the Boilermakers (21-21-1, 9-3), the Buckeyes came up just short, losing the game, 5-4. OSU lost both games to Purdue by one-run margins.

Ohio State football wraps up spring practice in 2014 Spring Game, Gray defeats Scarlet, 17-7

April 12, 2014
Spring brings new beginnings, which was exactly the case in Ohio Stadium as many young Buckeyes got their first game experience as the Gray defeated the Scarlet in the annual Ohio State Spring Game, 17-7. “It’s a chance to see some young guys that really haven’t played to be quite honest,” OSU coach Urban Meyer said after the game. “This is a chance for a lot of guys in our program who work very hard and we are to be able to let some guys play or catch a pass in Ohio Stadium.” As the game came to an end, the Ohio State football team had answered some off-season questions,… Read more

Ohio State men’s lacrosse shuts out Michigan in 2nd half, beat Wolverines, 15-6

April 12, 2014
For the briefest of moments, it seemed like the Michigan Wolverines were going to come to Ohio Stadium and pull an upset against the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team. A three-goal deficit early in the second quarter seemed to be a bad omen for the Buckeyes, who started the year winning one of their first five games. But OSU (5-6, 2-0) held Michigan (4-9, 1-3) scoreless in the second half, and pulled away in front of a season-high crowd of 17,641 to earn a 15-6 win Saturday in Ohio Stadium. OSU coach Nick Myers said the game presented his team with the opportunity to get a huge win in front… Read more

Review: Big Free Concert big, free and rowdy

April 11, 2014
Spring has sprung, and so were the students at the Ohio Union Activities Board’s Big Free Concert. Campus was a carnival Thursday night as Ohio State welcomed Caked Up, The Chainsmokers, Juicy J and Childish Gambino onto the muddied residue of what once was South Oval. Despite students’ efforts to focus on their studies, campus was buzzing Thursday with talk of the upcoming concert and promising sounds coming through their open windows as the stage men began soundcheck yesterday afternoon. As 7 p.m. approached, anticipation grew. Girls slipped into their crop tops and high waisted shorts, the guys packed their cargo shorts’ pockets with Busch Lights and cigars and began… Read more

24-hour run at Ohio State raises scholarship money for relatives of fallen soldiers

April 6, 2014
On Oct. 30, 2007, Brittnay McCall opened her door to a military officer and a chaplain. “On behalf of a grateful nation, we regret to inform you…” the officer read as he informed her of her husband’s death. McCall said that was only the start of a long journey. “For a long time, I didn’t know how to accept it, how to incorporate it, how to balance it with everyday life but still make it a part of life in general,” McCall said. “When I decided I wanted to go back to school, I wanted to incorporate what I’d been through into me being able to help other people.” Almost… Read more

One day after belting out 19 hits and 11 runs, the Ohio State baseball team picked up right where it left off against Toledo.

With the bases full and no outs, Achter walked sophomore infielder Jacob Bosiokovic to force in the first run for… Read more

March 26, 2014
They’ve long been called some of the best fans in the land, but Ohio State students might also have earned the title of some of the fastest in the land.

Once the competitors toed the line and went back in their stances, the onlookers were more than impressed. “Believe it or not, some of the times that we have here are… Read more

End of the road: Ohio State slips out of NCAA Tournament with 60-59 loss to Dayton

March 20, 2014
BUFFALO, N.Y. — Just when you thought the Buckeyes had it, they didn’t. Up and down, at some points energized and others lethargic against No. 11-seed Dayton, the No. 6-seed Ohio State men’s basketball team found themselves in the driver’s seat with 17 seconds left in a second round matchup of the NCAA Tournament. Team leader and senior guard Aaron Craft had just — as he so often has throughout his career — somehow contorted his body around a defender in the lane and flicked his left wrist to score and give his team a 59-58 lead. “(Dayton had) been playing me to my right hand all game, so (I)… Read more
