Attorney for OSU student tackled on field enters not guilty plea

The attorney for the Ohio State student who ran onto the Ohio Stadium field during Saturday’s game against Cincinnati pleaded not guilty to criminal trespassing charges on behalf of his client.

Collins and Wunder did not immediately return The Lantern’s request for comment Tuesday afternoon.

Urban Meyer’s comfort level improving along with offensive line, pass defense needs work

September 30, 2014
Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer made his weekly appearance on the Big Ten teleconference Tuesday afternoon and discussed the improved play of the offensive line, the emergence of sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott and his comfort level with the team thus far. The Buckeyes are 3-1 on the season following a 50-28 victory over the Cincinnati Bearcats Saturday night.         Meyer said after Saturday’s win over Cincinnati his offensive line has “crossed the barrier” and added he believes the offense has developed depth and more of an identity. He named redshirt-junior Chase Farris as someone who has improved and is earning playing time on the offensive line.         He said that… Read more

Risk of sexual assault increases in certain time frames, environments

September 29, 2014
The beginning of a college student’s first semester, known as the “red zone,” is recognized across college campuses as a time when female students might be at an increased risk of becoming a victim to sexual assault. But there might be other periods of risk that are not covered within the red zone time frame that stretches from the first day on campus until Thanksgiving break, said Bill Flack, an associate professor of psychology at Bucknell University in Pennsylvania. Since 2007, Flack has been conducting annual surveys on college campus sexual assault. “All campuses should be doing climate surveys,” he said. “Not that local numbers are perfect, but they are… Read more

September 29, 2014
When Ohio State’s Joey Bosa drilled Cincinnati quarterback Gunner Kiel on Saturday and forced a fumble that ultimately resulted in a safety, the record crowd at Ohio Stadium erupted. Bosa wasn’t even sure where the ball landed. “I just made a move inside and my eyes got big and I ran as fast as I can and hit him as hard as I could,” Bosa, a sophomore defensive lineman, said Saturday following the game. “I actually thought he got the ball off so I stood up and went to walk back to the line, but I saw the ball pop out.” The play not only electrified the fans and gave… Read more

Offensive line paves the way for Buckeyes’ big numbers

September 29, 2014
After Ohio State’s win against Cincinnati, Urban Meyer made it clear which position group led the way. On Monday, the third-year OSU coach reiterated the impact his offensive line had on the Buckeyes 50-28 win. “Player of the game was the entire offensive line,” Meyer said. The line paved the way as the OSU offense either set, or came close to setting, multiple school records against the Bearcats. The Buckeyes set a new OSU record with 45 first downs and finished third in school history with 710 total yards from scrimmage. The Buckeyes even briefly held what would have been a new record of 720 yards before a 20-yard loss… Read more

September 29, 2014
Experiencing an extended losing streak is less than ideal for any team. For the Ohio State men’s soccer team, a trip on the road to take on a top-10 team could make that situation even worse. OSU (2-3-3, 1-1-0) has dropped three straight games after beginning the season undefeated through its first five. The team is scheduled to travel to Louisville, Ky., to take on the No. 8 Louisville Cardinals (5-1-1) on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. A struggle to score goals has been at the forefront for the Buckeyes, who have only scored one goal in their three consecutive losses. “The ability to score goals has been lacking so far,”… Read more
