Aaron Craft Gets Engaged; OSU Women Seek Solace in Ice Cream


Scrappy OSU point guard Aaron Craft — the man whose face has become a compelling Jason Kipnis/Grady Sizemore hybrid — is getting married! He's pictured at right with longtime sweetheart Amber Peterson.

Ours deals exclusively with the recourse to dairy.
