    Tarak Andrew Underiner wanted Ohio college students to have the right to carry guns on campus so they could defend themselves in dangerous situations – say, leaving the library late at night and traveling home alone. Now he’s the first homicide of 2017 in Columbus. The Lantern reports that the Ohio State University campus-carry activist was “found dead from gunshot wounds” at a residence near campus when police responded to a shooting around 12:30 a.m. Thursday. The police report says investigators don’t think the shooting was “random in nature.” Underiner, the treasurer of Buckeyes for Concealed Carry, testified in November...

    With less than two minutes left in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night, Ohio State, ahead by 7 points and having just recovered an onside kick by Alabama, tried a deep pass along the left sideline — Ohio State’s sideline. Standing near the bench, Jim Delany, the commissioner of the Big Ten Conference for 26 years, sprinted a few steps toward the field to catch a glimpse of the ball as it hurtled through the air. The pass fell incomplete, but his actions were a sign of the investment that not only Buckeyes fans, but fans of all Big Ten...
  • College: Students must agree ‘why’ they had sex to avoid sexual assault charges

    At Ohio State University, to avoid being guilty of “sexual assault” or “sexual violence,” you and your partner now apparently have to agree on the reason WHY you are making out or having sex. It’s not enough to agree to DO it, you have to agree on WHY: there has to be agreement “regarding the who, what, where, when, why, and how this sexual activity will take place.”There used to be a joke that women need a reason to have sex, while men only need a place. Does this policy reflect that juvenile mindset? Such a requirement baffles some women...

    Ohio State University has fired the director of its marching band and is expanding an internal investigation that uncovered a deep culture of sexual harassment among students that reportedly has existed for years. The two-month investigation, triggered by the complaint of a parent, revealed a cascade of evidence that students routinely harassed one another –– often directed at new band members by older students –– and that director Jonathan Waters knew about it or should have known. Waters, 38, was ousted from his post effective today, OSU President Michael V. Drake said. Details of the investigation are laid out in...

    Obama laments entrenched power at Ohio State commencement By REID J. EPSTEIN | 5/5/13 1:24 PM EDT President Barack Obama is the most powerful man in the world, but he still laments that there is so much still out of his control. Obama told Ohio State University graduates Sunday that it will be their responsibility to make the world a better place, because forces aligned against them still hold substantial power. The dour commencement address touched on Obama’s familiar we’re-all-together theme and included shots at his regular bogeymen: Wall Street, an obstinate Congress and, of course, the press. “As you’ve...

    U.S. President Barack Obama gives the commencement address to the graduating class of The Ohio State University at Ohio Stadium on May 5, 2013 in Columbus, Ohio. PRESIDENT OBAMA: Unfortunately, you've grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that's at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They'll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule...

    “I don’t pretend to have all the answers,” President Obama told Ohio State students at their commencement on Sunday. “I’m not going to offer some grand theory on a beautiful day like this—you guys all have celebrating to do. I’m not going to get partisan, either, because that’s not what citizenship is about.” President Obama, stressing the theme of “citizenship,” said he would ask two things from the class of 2013—“to participate and to persevere. After all, your democracy does not function without your active participation. At a bare minimum, that means voting, eagerly and often.” … “Unfortunately, you’ve grown...

    You may have missed it this weekend, but President Obama gave the commencement address at Ohio State. Here’s the memorable line: PRESIDENT OBAMA: Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems…They’ll warn that tyranny’s always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave and creative and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted. That’s interesting, because the people who actually began this “brave...

    Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer sent an apology letter to a lesbian and gay advocacy group on campus for his plans to use lavender football jerseys as a form of punishment to players in practice according to and the OSU campus newspaper, The Lantern. The lavender jersey would be given to a player caught "loafing" - or a moment of deceleration - for the second time during a conditioning drill. The concept was created by Ohio State strength and conditioning coach Mickey Marotti. The school will now use a different color.

    Wednesday's news that Ohio State players were under investigation for exchanging autographs for free tattoos was good for a laugh, and for Vegas to nix the gambling lines on the Buckeyes' upcoming Sugar Bowl date with Arkansas. But tattoos and point spreads are the least of OSU's concerns today. Five players – four of them starters, including mega-hyped 2008 classmates Terrelle Pryor, Mike Adams and DeVier Posey – will miss the first five games of next season for selling jerseys, rings and other memorabilia, putting them on ice for almost half the schedule and potentially sinking another run at the...

    Visitors to Michigan's largest city received yet another reminder Thursday of Ohio State's dominance in college football's greatest rivalry. An Ohio State fan purchased a billboard in downtown Detroit that commemorates the 2,000th day since Michigan's last victory in the Ohio State-Michigan series. The maize-and-blue billboard, seen here on The Columbus Dispatch's Web site, mockingly celebrates the milestone for Michigan.

    It's not the best-researched global-warming theory, but it could be the most horrifying to certain fans of college football: Environmentalists said Friday that climate change might push the growing range of Ohio's iconic buckeye tree out of the state, leaving it for archrival Michigan. snip "People had thought of global warming as something far away, affecting polar bears," said Tom Bullock, an advocate for the Pew Environment Group in Ohio. "If we don't get started now we will reduce the opportunity to reduce global warming and curb its worst effects."snipThe coalition doesn't have any evidence that the buckeye's range has...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — It was an especially long, cold winter for the Ohio State Buckeyes. A relatively stress-free season for the Buckeyes, top-ranked since August, came down to a stunning, humiliating conclusion on Jan. 8 against Florida in the BCS national championship game. It became an enduring black eye: Florida 41, Ohio State 14. Now, while looking ahead to 2007, the Buckeyes still must shake the flashbacks from that final game. "I don't think that there's any question in the back of everybody's mind - I mean, how does it not?" defensive coordinator Jim Heacock said when asked whether the...

    LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Ohio State thought Greg Oden was its best shot at a national championship. Turns out it was Ron Lewis, and in the nick of time. Lewis hit a long-range 3-pointer with two seconds left to force overtime, and the top-seeded Buckeyes rallied from a late 11-point deficit to beat Xavier 78-71 Saturday in a second-round South Regional game. Ohio State trailed 55-44 with 7 ˝ minutes left, and was still down 59-50 with 3:49 left. When Oden fouled out with a hard shove after the Buckeyes kept missing in the last 10 seconds, they looked lost. Xavier...

    It was the end of Monday night's BCS Championship party and we still weren't having Fun Bunch yet. Oh, you remember the Fun Bunch, a four-pack of Ohio State Buckeyes that colluded to put 42 points on Michigan and at least 35 on nine of their 12 ruthlessly-whacked opponents. Well, after weeks of mind-numbing analysis, we now know the Fun Bunch was no match for the Run Bunch. Yeah, the Run Bunch checks in as a collection of speed freaks from Florida coached by Urban Meyer and, at 41-14, better on title night than the long-running favorite.

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Troy Smith's Heisman Trophy was shipped home because airport security would not allow the Ohio State quarterback to take it on the plane Tuesday. Smith wore a black leather jacket with the Heisman insignia on back when he arrived at the airport from New York, where he was presented college football's most coveted trophy. Eddie George, the last Buckeye to win the Heisman in 1995, had his trophy get stuck in an airport X-ray machine, losing the tip of its right index finger and bending the middle finger. "We decided to have it shipped. That's much...

    Florida's fine, but how is Michigan left out? If you're Michigan coach Lloyd Carr, how do you explain to your players that they won't be in the BCS Championship Game? How do you tell the second-best team in the country to get pumped about playing USC in the Runner-Up Bowl? How do you resist the urge of wishing Nutcracker drills on every person who jumped one-loss Florida ahead of the one-loss Wolverines in the final polls?
