President Michael Drake focuses on positives in 1st university address

October 31, 2014
Ohio State needs to place a greater focus on teaching, while continuing its goal of research eminence, President Michael Drake said in his first address to University Senate on Thursday. The university is a “modern land-grant institution that’s also a doorway to the world,” he said. “We teach for Ohio, but we do research for the world.” As examples of OSU’s worldwide presence, Drake noted the university’s Global Gateway offices around the world, such as the one in São Paolo that opened Sept. 13.  Drake strayed from announcing anything bold for OSU’s future and he avoided taking up any controversial stances. Instead, the president used the forum to highlight the… Read more

J.T. Barrett sparks Buckeyes in overtime despite injury, second-half mistakes

October 26, 2014
For the first time since the Virginia Tech game, the Ohio State offense was struggling. After outscoring the Penn State Nittany Lions 17-0 in the first half, the Buckeye offense seemed to stall as its redshirt-freshman quarterback began to look like the player he was in the loss to Virginia Tech. J.T. Barrett threw two second-half interceptions against the Nittany Lions Saturday night, the first being returned 40-yards the other way for a Penn State touchdown. Even with the costly turnover, the Buckeyes hung on for a 31-24 win in double overtime in State College, Pa. Despite the off night from his quarterback, OSU coach Urban Meyer said after the… Read more

Joey Bosa cements double-overtime win for Buckeyes against Penn State

October 26, 2014
  STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — The No. 13 Ohio State football team jumped out to an early lead, but relied on a late defensive stand in a 31-24 double-overtime victory against Penn State. OSU (6-1, 3-0) sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa knocked down Penn State (4-3, 1-3) sophomore quarterback Christian Hackenberg on fourth-and-five in the second overtime to seal the win Saturday night at Beaver Stadium. “I think we learned that we are a real team, and when adversity strikes we can come together and win a big game in a crazy environment,” Bosa said after the game. After the Buckeyes outscored the Nittany Lions 17-0 in the first half,… 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

Ohio State student tackled on field faces $100 fine, counseling

October 17, 2014
About 5 seconds. That’s roughly the time Ohio State student Anthony Wunder spent sprinting down the Ohio Stadium field in the middle of an OSU football game, but that’s all the time it took to land him a court-ordered fine and months of required counseling. Wunder, a fourth-year in mechanical engineering, appeared in Franklin County Municipal Court on Thursday morning on one count of criminal trespassing, a fourth-degree misdemeanor punishable by a maximum of 30 days in jail and a $250 fine. He pleaded guilty to the charge. “He’s taken responsibility for his actions,” said Mark C. Collins, the attorney representing Wunder. “He made the poor choice to go out… Read more

Permanent Mirror Lake ducks removed

October 16, 2014
After Mirror Lake was drained last November for a sustainability study, some Ohio State students were left wondering what would become of the beloved ducks of Mirror Lake. Those ducks — which were initially relocated to a farm ­— will not be returning, a wildlife expert said. That’s because most of the ducks, which were relocated using a specialized wildlife management firm hired by the university, were bred for food and genetically too heavy to fly elsewhere, said Dirk Shearer, president of the Wildlife Control Inc. “Those were domestic ducks and offspring of domestic ducks that people had dumped there,” he said. Shearer said that is how the Pekin ducks… Read more
