Silver Bullet Points Collects Change

Lucrative? Well…

After a weekend in the land of authentic pizza and corrupt government, there’s really only one choice for this week’s soundtrack, particularly with all of the news coming out of B1G headquarters.

Buckeye 411

Gonna’ be honest- not much in the way of news in Columbus these days, Thank Woody. Here’s some tidbits, though:

  • Hockey Bucks- Whispers on Tuesday were that Ohio State will make current interim coach Steve Rholik the permanent leader for the upcoming season.  Not a “slam dunk”, but certainly a solid hire nonetheless.
  • Getting Drafty- The NFL Draft starts on Thursday, and there’s a good possibility that the entire B1G will be shut out of the first round for the first time in forever.  For OSU Draft prospectus, be sure to check out the earlier take from our NFL Expert.
  • iTBDBITL- Interesting article in The Lantern today regarding the OSU Marching Band’s efforts to save paper and procure iPads for everyone involved in the program. There are a ton of advantages to this idea,

Using certain applications available on the iPads, members of the band would be able to read music, send out videos of rehearsals and also read field charts. Normally, only the band director is able to see the bigger picture in motion while the band members look at papers.

“Instead of one person getting to see the bigger picture, now everyone gets to see the actual animation,” Barta said.

King and Barta said they are not aware of any other university band using this type of technology, which they hope will also help them recruit future Buckeyes.

“We are similar to sports teams in terms of recruiting,” King said. “We are trying to get the best high school student musicians to come play our band.”

The funds that TBDBITL need to raise are around $120K… meanwhile, all of the student athletes have been provided iPads for a while now.  This has been your weekly “athletes and students are not the same” reminder.
