Urban Meyer: Not involved with Noah Spence hearing

November 25, 2014
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer spoke about the status of junior defensive lineman Noah Spence during Tuesday’s Big Ten teleconference, but said he’s not closely involved with the appeal process. Coming off a three-game suspension, Spence was ruled ineligible just before the Kent State game in September after reportedly failing a second drug test. He has not played for OSU since the 2013 Big Ten Championship Game. Meyer said he’s not involved with Spence’s hearing — which is scheduled to happen sometime Tuesday — but added he knows “a little bit about it.” Meyer said “we’ll cross that bridge,” in regards to Spence potentially returning to the Buckeyes and added… Read more

Students tear fences down, jump in Mirror Lake early

November 25, 2014
and
  For a while, it seemed as though the ducks might make more of a splash than any students. Last year, students jumped in the lake a night early in response to a university policy change that required them to get wristbands to enter the Mirror Lake area for the traditional jump before the Michigan game. There were also fences erected around the area prohibiting entry. This year, students also jumped a night early, on Monday, to protest the fences and wristbands. As of Monday evening, more than 380 people had responded to a Facebook event for “Mirror Lake Monday” saying they were going. The event was slated to occur… Read more

Ohio State senior class legacy on the line in next 2 games

November 25, 2014
In the span of four seasons, the Ohio State senior class has experienced a 24-game winning streak, a 23-game Big Ten winning streak and a crushing loss in the 2013 Big Ten Championship Game. While the success the seniors have had is significant, there’s still something missing. OSU is already set to play in the Big Ten Championship Game on Dec. 6 in Indianapolis, but 24 seniors will be honored this week when the Buckeyes take on Michigan on Saturday at Ohio Stadium. Starting with the Wolverines, coach Urban Meyer said the seniors’ legacy will be decided over the next two weeks. “This book’s not written yet,” Meyer said Monday.… Read more

A moment from WWII still rings strongly for alumnus ‘Doc’ Allen 70 years later

November 25, 2014
By the time the 1940 football season came around, William “Bill” Nosker was one of the most experienced members of the Ohio State football team. He was a regular starter at guard on the 1938 and ‘39 teams, the latter of which won the school’s first outright Big Ten title since Nosker was 1 year old.  He contributed to an OSU team that went 4-4 in 1940, but shortly after the season ended, he would no longer be a student. During his senior year, he decided to enlist in the Air Force, for reasons he held close to his heart. At that time, nobody knew him better than his then-future… Read more

Alumni: Fences, wristbands can blemish Mirror Lake experience

November 25, 2014
The safety protocols Ohio State will implement during this year’s Mirror Lake jump might do more harm than good, some OSU alumni said. This year, access to Mirror Lake will be granted through two primary entry points to students with wristbands. The OSU Department of Public Safety plans to make sure every person attempting to jump into the lake is checked for a wristband. Wristbands can only be distributed to currently enrolled students.  In addition to the requirement of wristbands, fences have been erected by the university to filter students through the two primary entry points. “I don’t think having a wristband will do much. I just think it will… Read more
