Brothers make weekend trip up to Cleveland - the best city on Earth!

IMG_3229.JPG

It was a great November weekend for eight Theta Deuteron brothers to road trip to Cleveland and attend their newly-found favorite sports team: the Cleveland Browns! Brother Matt “go-getter” Brault, AJ “Uhh…uhhhyyuuupp” Outcalt, Jordan “Good Vibes Only” Auriemma, Ben “I am truly a Browns fan now” Whitbourn, Jack “the pros stop there” Dugan, Aunders “Slow Rising” Erickson, Nick “I lost my phone” Braydich and Mike “Joe Thomas” Heeshan all caravanned up to brother Outcalt’s house in Avon Lake. On the way up, the boys updated followers on their Instagram account with video, pictures, and a questionnaire for followers to ask the brothers questions. Some of the questions the boys were asked were: birthday next week who’s coming to celebrate, is AJ single? He’s cute <3, what is Ben’s favorite American football team, what’s the swimmers diet, are the Browns going to win or lose, is Ben stressed out and whose playlist are you coasting to.

Before reaching Ice Man’s crib, the boys took a pit stop at Westlake’s beautiful Crocker Park - an outdoor mall. Here, brothers Nick and Aunders bought Browns beanies from Dick’s Sporting Goods to fuel their inner love for the Brown and Orange. After that, the brothers arrived at their destination, welcomed with good cheer, refreshing beverages, Ocean’s 11, Jeager (AJ’s legendary dog) and a gourmet meal cooked by the Ice Man’s parents, Nancy and Andy. The meal included steak, red potatoes, broccoli and bread and the Owl Howl! While in Avon Lake, a majority of the gang got an experienced tour of the world renown landmarks such as Legacy Golf Course, Avon Lake High School, Blesser Park, and Veteran’s Memorial Park (view of Lake Erie). After this great tour and scrumbscious meal, the boys played pool, poker and experienced a few of the classic local attractions: the Quarry and the Breakwall. One of the main highlights from the night/early morning consist of brother Nick “I think I lost my wallet” Braydich thinking he lost his wallet…

In the morning, Nancy and Andy prepared a 4.5-star breakfast including sandwiches (bacon and/or sausage, egg, cheese, english muffin) for the boys, along with coffee, Dunkin’s donuts and HUGE bowl of fruit (apples, strawberries, blueberries and more). As the boys took the scenic route down Ohio’s Route 6 (Lake rd.) they enjoyed smooth tunes from Brother Outcalt’s famous Spotify playlist, “Shreddar of the Gnar.” Upon parking at their tailgate spot on W 6th street, Nick “I think I lost my wallet” Braydich miraculously and immediately found his wallet in the trunk of the car… what a relief!!

The bros then hung out with Browns fans, tossed the football around and walked First Energy Stadium. En route, brothers Jack “the pros stop there” Dugan, and Mike “Joe Thomas” Heeshan sniped a fresh Browns beanie from a side-street vendor.

Like any other day, Baker Mayfield woke up feeling DANGEROUS and boy was this a good thing for the Fiji boys, and Cleveland… Baker led the win deprived Browns to their first win in November since 2014 (28-16)! Highlights include a step-back (Kobe) deep ball to Reshawd Higgins in the 1st Quarter, a franchise record 92-yard rushing touchdown from Nick Chubb and a stellar goal-line stand led by Myles Garret & Co. Overall, it’s safe to say this weekend was one for the books, and will serve as a very memorable weekend for many years to come!!

Not for college days alone! - P!

Brothers Lucas “Gunslinger” Farmer, AJ “Ice Man” Outcalt, Ben “FOOTBALL!” Whitbourn, Jay “High School Legend” Welch and Matt “y B”Brault enjoyed 65 cent boneless wing night after securing the chapters first W of the intramural dodgeball season against Delta Gamma. After a quick 2-0 (best of 3) win, the brothers of FIJI and sisters of DG intermingled a co-ed team for a classic showdown. Jay and Matty lead their team to a 2-1 series win. Highlights include Jay knocking out contestants behind his back, as well as throwing 70 mph heaters. While cooling down at Bdubs, the intramural squad watched the Dophins/Texans game that ended 42-23 Texans, with Desean Watson throwing for 5 TD’s while Will Fuller suffered a season ending injury. Among conversation, old stories, jokes and much more contributed to a continuing brotherhood bond between these studs. They look forward to more fun hangouts throughout the year!

The Brothers of Phi Gamma Delta competed in Delta Gamma’s annual Anchor Bowl event under the Friday night lights of Selby Stadium (Oct 5th). The FIJI brothers came out battling strong against Sig Ep in the first round and secured a HUGE W to push them to the semi finals. Highlights include gun-slinging throws from QB’s Jack “Energy” Dugan, Jay “Slept-on” Welch and AJ “Baker Mayfield” Outcalt. In fact one of the top plays of the game came from Outcalt’s 15-yard laser beam on a 3rd and long - deflecting off a defenders hands - and into Nick “Has to be” Braydich’s hands for a TD!! This miracle play put the boys up one score as they were able to secure the bread/bag/lead and move on to the next round!

The brothers of Phi Gamma Delta went on to lose a nail-bitter in the semi finals to the Men’s Lacrosse team by one touchdown. Nonetheless, lots of action-backed plays, competitive flairs, memories, and fun!

Proud to be!

Joe Brush presents summer research on the North American Wren

This past Monday, Joe presented his research findings along with a select group of OWU students who also performed summer research studies at the OWU Student Symposium.

This summer Joe interned with Dr. Reichard, an ornithologist and evolutionary biologist here at OWU. His project focused on studying aggressive behavior and hormone levels in two species of wrens that are native to North America. They have completed the behavioral analysis, and now we will continue by analyzing the blood plasma collected to determine the levels of testosterone and corticosterone, two hormones related to aggressive behavior.

Very cool research, with more updates to come - stay tuned!

Over the summer, Mike confirmed gamma ray transitions and assigned spin states to high energy gallium-70. The spin states uncovered a ladder like structure above the g_9/2 orbital that is indicative of rotational motion and deformation of the nucleus.

Very technical information, but power moves only!

Last Spring semester, Brother Lucas farmer was accepted into the NSF REU (National Science Foundation - Research Experience for Undergraduates)

Earlier this Monday, Lucas presented his findings at the OWU Student Symposium:

Off the coast of Belize, Lucas worked with a team of international community scholars apart of Citizen Science GIS. Him and his team collected high resolution imagery to update and replace satellite imagery of mapped island. Interviews were conducted to bring context to our imagery by gathering real life knowledge and experience about the islands over time. From this data they intend to develop multiple types of deliverable (story maps, postcards, calendars, maps, prints of imagery) to be added into a large open data set available to the public and our community partners.

Great stuff and more to come - Have a great weekend!

Brotherhood Ping-pong Tournament!

 Brotherhood chariman, Jack “Energy” Dugan and Gold Paddle winner, Ryan “Chillsman” Huelsman

Brotherhood chariman, Jack “Energy” Dugan and Gold Paddle winner, Ryan “Chillsman” Huelsman

Last Friday was a great Friday, but an even better night for ping-pong. The brothers of the Theta Deuteron chapter have been gearing up for this gauntlet for weeks, and thankfully Brother Aunders had bossed up on 4 new paddles with a flat cushion for ultimate spinage… but the wait was over and it was finally there time to display their talents. The tournament started with a nail-bitting thriller ending with Brother Wads defeating Brother McTague. Brothers on the golf team had a strong showing, while nearly 4 made it to the elite 8. After many grueling and hard fought matches, there were two contestants left: Brother Aunders “Diesel” Erikson and Brother Ryan “Chillsman” Huelsman. At a score of 16 to 12, Diesel was in a great position to lock in the golden paddle. BUT, Chillsman gained momentum as the brothers cheered him on. He fought back and tied the game up 20-20!! As he loses the next point (20-21) he is one point away from taking the L. Like any big player in big time situations, Chillsman converts- BRUSHING the edge of the back table, skirting off the table in an unhitable fashion… the brothers as ECSTATIC!! Chillsman ties it up, and takes momentum. He later takes the next two points and secures the golden paddle. The BOIS “dog-pile” him into the nearest couch and cheer with joy. The upset and W of a lifetime…

Big shoutout to Brotherhood chair, Jack “Energy” Dugan for setting up a great event.

Flash Back Friday - Books land in Fiji!

Last spring the brothers of the Theta Dueteron chapter held a book drive to collect books for children in Fiji ranging from K-12th grade levels. Brother Nick Braydich helped organize the event, Phi Gamma Jamma, in which a live band performed at Gray Chapel - the chapter collected over 400 books! With the help of recent graduate brother, Alex Widman, we were able to send these books out to the island of Fiji where he is currently assisting with the Peace Corps. Great to see the current and post graduate brothers collaborate on something so impactful!

The past and current brothers of Theta Deuteron gathered for their 115th annual Pig Dinner! The weekend started off great with a solid lunch in the basement of the Lodge early in the afternoon on Saturday. Sixty-some brothers (literally) squeezed in and enjoyed each others company, learning more about the current status of the chapter as well as exchanging all sorts of stories. As dinner came around at 5:30, brothers cheered on the new pledges, scarfed down a wonderful meal, listened in on President Rock Jones' campus update report which was then followed by an incredibly motivating speech from the evening speaker, Dan Glaser (CEO of Marsh & McLennan). The current brothers of Theta Deuteron later honored Don Maxwell as this year's Unsung Hero. This award is given to a graduate brother who has devoted productive time and assistance to the chapter under-the-radar, and has not yet been recognized. After dinner, the brothers enjoyed the rest the night conversing in downtown Delaware, OH. Needless to say, the current and graduate brothers of Phi Gamma Delta had a fantastic weekend and are already anticipating next years Pig Dinner!

The brothers fought hard all season, and secured the sought-after championship shirts through an epic buzzer beating goal as time expired! This extraordinary goal was executed from a cheeky pass from JB to Felipe as he finished the shot with the back of his heel. Aidan was very pleased to watch such an exciting event on his 22nd birthday!

Many brothers and potential new members piled into the Lodge this past Sunday night to watch a very entertaining Super Bowl 52 (Patriots vs. Eagles)! Our Brotherhood Chairmen, David Robinett, scored big through a HUGE order to Jimmy Johns - supplying many subs, with enough additional mustard packages to last us the next 36 months. Most brothers were cheering on the Eagles as few Patriots cheered on the G.O.A.T. Highlights consist of SB MVP Nick Foles passing for 3 TDs and catching a TD! Justin Timberlake performed at halftime and absolutely crushed it - incorporating his awesome dance moves with his new and classic songs. Towards the end of his show he surprised a young boy in the stands - which lead to a funny meme (see below). The brothers enjoyed a constant thriller with few punts, lots of scoring and an almost remarkable "hail mary" at the end of the game to send the game into OT. Eagles come out on top 41-33. This night was definitely not for college days alone! Proud to be!

9 Courageous brothers persevered through the frozen tundra of Delaware, OH and absolutely crush mad bowling pins at Colony Lanes. Highlights consist of A.J. Outcalt's field-high score of 155 in the last of their 3 game circuit. The owners of Colony Lanes anxiously watched and were rumored to believe that Outcalt's performance reminded them of the clutch-ness the witnessed when Kryie drilled "The Shot" in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals. Wilbur put up a solid fight falling just short of the Ice Man posting a score of 153. Colony Lanes was lacking tunes, but thankfully Soundcloud came to the rescue. Brothers jammed out to Two Friends' Big Bootie Remix #9 and logged scores on the old-school 1980's computers. Needless to say it was a great event, and many more pins will be crushed in the future!

Graduate brother Dan Bennington's "Burger Quest" continues

Graduate brother Dan Bennington's "Burger Quest" continues

When the Theta Deuteron chapter at OWU was rechartered, Dan Bennington took up the mantle of Purple Legionnaire.  Through all his contributions to the fraternity, this chapter has thrived and grown to one of the most respected groups on campus, among both faculty and students. When contemplating the question "What does it mean to be a FIJI?", one need not look further than to Dan for the answer. From all Theta Deuteron brothers to Dan, THANK YOU for everything you've done and continue to do for this chapter!

Although Dan recently passed the torch of Purple Legionnaire to the rechartering president Ryan Kaplan, he has kept busy by searching for the BEST BURGER in the United States. While the actives are on campus working hard at academics, athletics, extracurriculars, and community building, Dan is living life to the fullest, all the while searching for the perfect burger along the way. Here is a look at his most recent burger experience.

"Wednesday Hamburger Quest. Duffy's Sports Grill. Estero, FL- No. 165

Estero, Florida is the home of the Koreshan Historic Site, where Dr. Cyrus R. Teed, alias Koresh brought his followers in the first decade of the last century.

Cyrus Reed Teed (October 18, 1839 – December 22, 1908) was a U.S. eclectic physician and alchemist turned religious leader and messiah. In 1869, claiming divine inspiration, Dr. Teed took on the name Koresh and proposed a new set of scientific and religious ideas he called Koreshanity, including a unique Hollow Earth theory that posits the Earth and sky exist inside the inner surface of a sphere.-Wikipedia

If I remember correctly, when Dr. Teed died, his followers placed his body in a bath tub and awaited his return from the dead. After a couple of weeks, the stench, decomposition and lack of movement convinced the faithful that he wasn't coming back and the movement pretty much disbanded.

Tonight, Swany and I went to Estero and Duffy's Sports Grill with good friends Tom and Jan A Kisting and Linda Gordon. All together we had the Cheeseburger, the Cheeseburger Sliders and the Bacon Mushroom Cheeseburger. I don't think any of us would claim it was a religious experience, but we all agreed that the burgers were excellent."
