The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.
The Ohio State Buckeyes lost their second straight shot at a national football championship title Monday night. Second ranked LSU defeated Ohio State 38 to 24 at the Superdome in New Orleans.
The Ohio State football team will, for the second straight season, play for the national championship. Last year Ohio State finished undefeated and was favored to win. But the Buckeyes were soundly defeated by the University of Florida in the BCS National Championship Game. And as WOSU’s Steve Brown reports, that loss may be contributing to a relative lack of excitement about this year’s finale.
