March 1, 2015
Ohio State self-reported 47 minor Big Ten and NCAA rules violations in 2014, including one as the result of an accidental text sent by a football coach’s 4-year-old son. OSU wide receivers coach Zach Smith’s son picked up his father’s cell phone when a recruit called on May 27, and accidentally sent an automatic text message in return. The university sent a letter of education to the football coaches after the incident in regards to NCAA texting rules and phone security. The NCAA did not review the case as part of its interpretations philosophy, which allows for flexibility when reviewing rule violations. This information is the result of three separate… Read more

Campus Partners seeks overhaul of 15th & High area

February 27, 2015
Campus Partners aims to rezone and “transform” 9 acres located around the intersection of 15th Avenue and High Street.

Ohio State band director search to take longer than expected

February 27, 2015
The search for Ohio State’s next band director will take longer than the school originally announced. The university said in a September release that a search committee planned to select the new leader within four to six months, or by mid-February. The new director will be selected once the school has “identified a world-class leader” for its “world-class band,” OSU spokesman Chris Davey said in a Friday email when asked when the name will be announced. He said the selection was slowed last semester because two current band members and the interim director are involved in the search, and the football season caused time constraints. The search committee has received… Read more

February 27, 2015
New York Knicks president Phil Jackson could face a tampering fine from the NBA for making comments about Ohio State freshman guard D’Angelo Russell, according to multiple reports. Jackson was on hand at the Schottenstein Center on Thursday night to watch Russell and his OSU teammates dispatch Nebraska, 81-57. According to Cleveland.com, Jackson made comments about Russell as he was leaving the arena. “He’s a great-looking kid,” Jackson said. “Great prospect.” The Knicks currently have the worst record in the NBA, meaning they will likely have a top five pick in the 2015 NBA Draft in June. Russell is currently projected to be among those top five picks. Multiple reports… Read more

Opinion: Depression hurts; hope helps

February 25, 2015
A couple of years ago, I wrote a column for The Lantern detailing my experience with depression, and in doing so, I wrote it to have an ending — and a happy one, at that. With the help of friends, family and counseling, I was done with depression, I concluded. I did this for two reasons. First, a great essay recounting a life pitfall is best with a conclusion consisting of some sort of reflective proverb of hope and diligence. Second — and probably the most honest — I needed to believe that the lowest low of my life thus far was isolated to three months during my sophomore year… Read more
