Light brown and yellow leaves lie
smashed under where the garage
door seals against the driveway.
Inside rests guitar cases, a saxo-
phone stand, and enough amplifiers
and speakers to rattle the house
built above the garage on Lawrence
Avenue in West Lawrence.
This isnt the home of The
Louisiana Street Band the mem-
bers just happened to be using the
garage to practice over the week-
end. This is a band born in Grace
Pearson Scholarship Hall, now
poised to make the leap to Los
Angles and win a recording session
in the same place where Aretha
Franklin and Dave Matthews Band
have recorded past albums.
The music they practice inside
of that small Lawrence garage
has already reached thousands of
ears across the country through a
national battle of the bands compe-
tition sponsored by General Mills.
The top three vote recipients in
the competition, called U Rock!
Battle for the Best, will travel to
Los Angeles to perform in front
of industry judges and the win-
ner will get to record in Firehouse
Recording Studios.
Thats a big deal, Evan
Epperson, a senior from Wichita,
said. Basically all the recordings
Ive done have been in most disad-
vantageous locations.
The Louisiana Street Band had
previously only recorded a list of
about seven songs in their dorm
rooms or the garage, which was on
the verge of being invaded by fall
Epperson is the lead guitarist
and vocalist in the band. He had
been trying to put together a group
since arriving at the University, but
the current form of the band has
only existed for one year. The six
current members came together
for their first performance togeth-
er in September for the Campus
Battle of the Bands sponsored by
Department of Student Housing,
KU Dining Services and General
The competition was judged by
crowd noise. And the winner was
slated to enter the national General
Mills contest.
I voted for Lucky Charms, Scott
Marks joked while Epperson quick-
ly agreed.
Marks, a senior at Baker
University, is the saxophonist for
the band. He said it was obvious
that their band had defeated the
two other competing bands at
Templin Hall.
Voting for the U Rock!
contest began on Oct. 29. The
Louisiana Street Band started the
competion off in first place, but
soon fell down in voting totals due
to an apparent cheating scandal in
the system. Some bands were receiv-
ing around five thousand votes each
day. General Mills restarted the
voting, and ever since then, The
Louisiana Street Band has main-
tained the lead, almost doubling the
second place band with 1,068 votes
as of Sunday night.
Austin Quick, a senior from
Shawnee, said the band has a
decently strong following here in
Someone at the Jazzhaus actu-
ally said it was pretty cool that
our name was that, Quick said of
his bands name, which was origi-
nally The Louisiana Street Voodoo
Kings, Because if youre not from
Lawrence youre not going to really
The band name also provokes
a good sense of what their music
sounds like, Epperson said. They
originally began as a blues group,
but have evolved into a classic rock
with a hint of Cajun funk
group. The members of the band
have experience as varied as the
groups musical style. Epperson said
they could sound like a band from
New Orleans.
Marks has been classically trained
in the saxophone, and he says that
this group really allows for each
members talents and personalities
to show through in their music.
Voting is open on the contests
website until Nov. 25. Epperson
said even if they dont win this
competition, the amount exposure
they received from this national
competition is invaluable. Quick
said there was a long future ahead
of this band.
We hope to just keep going with
it as high and as long as we can,
Quick said.
But for now they will practice in
their garage in West Lawrence with
Louisiana Street on their minds.

Wes Santee, a University track
star and Olympian, died Sunday
morning at the age of 78 in
Eureka after battling cancer.
Santee was regarded as one of
the worlds greatest distance run-
ners in the 1950s, according to a
press release from KU Athletics.
While at the University, Santee
won three NCAA individual
titles. In 1953, he led the cross
country team to its only NCAA
team championship. He gradu-
ated from the University in 1954.
Santee competed in the 1952
Olympics in Helsinki, Finland.
He was named the nations most
outstanding athlete by the Helms
Foundation an athletic foun-
dation based in Los Angeles
later that year.
In 2004, Santee was inducted
into the State of Kansas Sports
Hall of Fame. In 2005, he was
inducted into the USA Track and
Field Hall of Fame.
Wes Santee was one of KUs
all-time greats, not just in track
and field, but in the history of
Kansas athletics, said Sean Lester,
KU interim athletics director, in
the press release. He loved KU
and the entire Kansas family will
miss him. Our hearts go out to
his family.

Wes Santee, a native Kansan and former Olympian, died Sunday after battling cancer. In the

Professor Emeritus George
Woodyard, a pioneer in the field
of Latin American theater, died
of cancer on Nov. 7. He was 75
years old.
Most people will remember
Woodyard for his work ethic, easy
laughter and dedication to the
communi t y,
said Stuart
Day, chair-
man of the
Spanish and
Por t ugue s e
Ill always
r e me mb e r
him for his
gentle kind-
ness and for the way he helped
people reach their potential, Day
said. Sometimes without them
even knowing it.
Woodyard was a professor in
the Department of Spanish and
Portuguese from 1966 to 2005.
He became the first dean of inter-
national studies in 1989.
He founded an academic jour-
nal called the Latin American
Theatre Review in 1967 and was
its editor for
more than
40 years. He
won numer-
ous awards,
including the
Ollantay Prize
for Theatre
in Venezuela
and the Miami
Teatro Avante lifetime achieve-
ment award.
Danny Anderson, dean of
the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences, said Woodyard was a
teacher and mentor who left an
indelible mark on students and
faculty alike.
Maribel Johnson, a KU alum-
na, was one of those students. She
said she remembered Woodyard
for his genuine enthusiasm and
what she described as his tre-
mendous sense of humor. She
was a student in his Latin America
drama class nearly 40 years ago.
If I continued in academia I
wouldve wanted to be like him,
said Johnson, a Spanish teacher at
Perry-Lecompton High School. I
wouldve wanted to have that kind
of positive influence on students
while still being a highly regarded
academic professional.
Woodyard was also a widely
published author. His publica-
tions include several anthologies
and bibliographies, articles in
major publications in the U.S. and
abroad and a collection of essays
on Latin American playwrights.
He contributed to Theatre
Companies of the World and
various Cambridge Guides to
theater, according to a KU news
He will be remembered for
his generous dedication of time
toward his students and other
young scholars, for his vital-
ity when organizing internation-
al events, and for his founda-
tional contributions as a scholar
of drama and the stage in Latin
America, Anderson said in a
press release.
was born
on Nov. 18,
1934, in
Ill., as the
youngest of
nine chil-
dren. He is
survived by
his wife, Eleanor Tendick, and
four children.
Woodyard received his bach-
elors degree in education from
Eastern Illinois University in
1954 and his masters degree in
Spanish from New Mexico State
University the following year. He
received a Ph.D. in Spanish from
the University of Illinois in 1966.

in food and housing fees will go before the Board of Regents this

Student receives
multiple charges
Samuel Schlotterback, an
18-year-old University student,
was arrested early Saturday
morning on the 1600 block of
Crescent Road on charges of
operating under the infuence
after he hit a retaining wall and
a fre hydrant, and then fipped
his Subaru over according to
Lawrence Police Sgt. Kirk Fultz
and the Douglas County Sher-
ifs Ofce booking recap.
A witness saw people from
another car help Schlotterback
fip his Subaru upright, and
then he tried to drive away
before police arrested him,
Fultz said.
According to the booking
recap, Schlotterback was also
charged with failure to report
an accident, having no insur-
ance, and leaving the scene of
an accident. He was booked
after 2:30 a.m. and posted bond
the same day.

KU Memorial Unions
add meeting services
The KU Memorial Unions have
introduced two new services: a
collaborative computing space in
the Burge Union and free meet-
ing space in the Kansas Union.
The collaborative space, called
media:scapeT and located
inside the Collab computer lab,
allows students to share and see
information instantaneously.
Users connect their laptops to a
retractable, puck-shaped button
and become synced with all other
computers connected. Furniture
has also been repositioned to
encourge a more collaboartive
work environment.
The lounge has both PC and
Mac workstations with wireless
Internet. ResNet customer service
is available for any technological
The meeting space in the
Kansas Union is located on the
third level. Previously, free meet-
ing space had only been available
to student organizations and
campus departments.
We saw a need for the KU
community to meet outside of
department or registered student
organization afliations and
found a way to do it, said Lisa
Kring, director of event services
for the KU Memorial Unions.
Students need meeting space to
work on group projects, gather
for study sessions or perhaps a
place to meet in hopes of starting
a new student organization. Fac-
ulty members need space outside
of their ofces to collaborate
with peers, students or graduate
teaching assistants.
Any students wishing to use
media:scapeT must reserve the
space online at
events and have a KU online I.D.

Food and housing
fees may increase
The Universitys annual
food and housing fee increase
proposals will go before the
Kansas Board of Regents this
Diana Robertson, director
of student housing, said the
increases will coincide with the
increase in cost of living.
We try and estimate what
the increases for the coming
year might be and I base my
proposals of of that, Robert-
son said.
The University is proposing a
1.6 percent increase in housing
fees, or about $58 more for a
traditional two person room.
The increase is the lowest out
of the six state universities.
Kansas State is proposing an
increase of 3.5 percent and
Wichita State is proposing a 2.4
percent increase.
The revenue is expected to
help ofset the increase in utili-
ties, which Robertson said is a
major part of housings budget.
It will also help pay for operat-
ing costs and maintenance.
Employee insurance costs are
expected to increase next year
and the food and housing fee
increase will help ofset that as
well, Robertson said.
The $58 increase is lower
than last years increase of $88
for a traditional double room.
Robertson credits the lower
increase amount to the deacti-
vation of telephone lines in stu-
dent rooms over the summer.
The deactivation has saved
about $500,000.
That allowed me to de-
crease the amount we needed
to increase, if that makes
sense, Robertson said.
The Board of Regents will be
giving the universities propos-
als an initial look at its meeting
on Thursday in Topeka. If the
regents approve the increased
proposals, they would take ef-
fect as early as July 1.

After two students reported
that a man was watching porn
and masturbating at Watson
Library on Oct. 25, University
police have forwarded the case
to the University administration,
according to a statement from
Capt. Schuyler Bailey of the Public
Safety Office.
Unfortunately, the reported
incident did not meet the strict
requirements of the statute on
indecent exposure, the state-
ment said. The complaint has
been referred to the Office of the
Vice Provost for Student Success.
However, any report from that
office will not be public record.
Thats news to the reporting
students Dylan Kingsley, a
senior from Kansas City, Kan.,
and Emily Preheim, a junior from
Overland Park who identified
the man on a photo lineup.
Although neither woman said
they saw the mans penis, they did
witness him looking at porn on a
computer on the fourth floor of
Watson Library, in a computer
lab, and masturbating. When the
man got up to leave, there was a
stain on his chair and his pants.
Kingsley said the police swabbed
the stain on the chair for DNA.
They said they last heard from
police that the man would receive
a notice to appear in court, and
if he didnt, a warrant would be
issued for his arrest.
Im a little confused by it,
Kingsley said about the statement.
What measure is actually being
The women completed a two-
week process of cooperating
with the polices investigation,
they said. After an unsuccessful
initial photo lineup made from
mugshots, police made a com-
posite sketch with Preheim. From

and the man was identified on a
second photo lineup made from
drivers license pictures.

in Gulfport, Miss. The arrest capped
a massive manhunt in a bizarre case
that stretched across the country.
Court documents obtained by

Thorne said Sanders was alone
when he was arrested at the Flying
J Truck Stop by FBI agents and
Harrison County sheriff s deputies.
She would not release other details
about his arrest.
Despite being declared dead,
Sanders had been able to move

Fey look just a bit like Sarah Palin?
You betcha. Are both women
sassy brunettes who love droppin'
their consonants just for laughs?
Oh, fer sure. But on Tuesday
night, before a large crowd at the
Kennedy Center in Washington,
"Saturday Night Live" cast mem-
ber Seth Meyers pointed out one
major difference between Fey and
the would-be vice president she
has spoofed many times on TV:
"Tina won something."
That "something" was the Mark
Twain Prize for Humor, an honor
that's been bestowed upon such
comedy greats as Richard Pryor,
Billy Crystal and Bill Cosby. And
Fey, who attended the ceremony
with her husband and parents,
paid tribute to the former gover-
nor of Alaska in her acceptance
speech. "I would be a liar and an
idiot if I didn't thank Sarah Palin
for helping get me here tonight,"
said the Emmy-winning star of
"30 Rock" and "SNL." "My partial
resemblance and her crazy voice
are the two luckiest things that
have ever happened to me."
Hosted by a dozen of Fey's
famous friends, the luxurious
made-for-TV ceremony, which
will air on PBS stations nation-
wide on Sunday, doubled as a
benefit for the Kennedy Center.
Chairman David Rubenstein
kicked off the night by announc-
ing that Fey's event had raised
$1.3 million, the largest total in
the prize's history. Fred Armisen
of "SNL" couldn't resist joking
about the big bucks she makes
as a noted funnywoman. He esti-
mated that she'd raked in $60 mil-
lion for her movie "Baby Mama"
alone. "Mark Twain didn't do that
for Paramount," he scoffed.
At 40 years old, Fey is the
youngest recipient in the prize's
13-year history.
Michael Jacksons al-

son apparently always wanted to
be the lead single from the new

his death last year, will premiere

Pepsi project helps
philanthropic ideas
cued horses at a Cooke County
womans home probably arent
much for brand recognition, but
the hungry horses know a bag of
feed when they see it.
The feed, delivered by a rep-
resentative from Helping Hands
Animal Food Pantry, came cour-
tesy of the Pepsi Refresh Project,
an online contest which funds
ideas submitted by organizations
and individuals across the country.
Pepsi supplied money to purchase
the food after voters across the
nation picked the local animal food
bank to receive a $5,000 grant in
The animal food pantry is a good
example of the kinds of ideas Pepsi
hopes to nurture, Pepsi spokes-
woman Allison Arieff said in an
e-mail response to questions about
the project.
Pepsi is also hoping to foster
hope in troubled times and provide
money to grow ideas into actions,
she added.
The project was built on the
belief that great ideas can come
from anyone, anywhere, anytime,
Arieff said.
The program is designed to sup-
port individuals and organizations
across six categories -- health, arts
and culture, food and shelter, the
planet, neighborhood and educa-
tion, she noted.
Pepsi Refresh has distributed
more than $11.7 million in funding
for 287 ideas.
Besides being a philanthropic
effort, Arieff said the online social
engagement platform was helping
Pepsi build brand recognition and
customer loyalty.
The project has proven so popu-
lar, Arieff said the company plans
to continue Pepsi Refresh in 2011.
The Pepsi Refresh concept is
fairly simple.
Each month, individuals and
organizations vie for a spot on the
companys website.
Individuals can browse the
site and read about organizations
before casting their votes.
The first 1,000 valid projects
will be eligible for a public vote
online at www.RefreshEverything.
com, Arieff said. The top 100
runners-up from each category
(are) transferred over to the next
months voting period, but accu-
mulated votes from past months
(are) not carried over.
The top ideas are featured on
leader boards.
Contestants can urge friends,
coworkers, family and even other
organizations to vote for them.
Dingler said thats what Helping
Hands Animal Food Pantry did.
We had people voting for us
from all over
the country, she
said. Some were
rescue organi-
zations. Others
were veterinary
offices. There
were a couple
of Texas schools
and a humane
society support-
ing us.
Dingler said she and others
involved in the effort were thrilled
to win the contest.
But the organization continues
to struggle.
Despite having a rent-free build-
ing in which to house its operation,
the food bank cant even hang up
its sign because the building, an
unoccupied rental home, is in a
residential area and is not zoned for
use by a non-profit organization,
Dingler said.
She said she was working on the
problem and might approach the
city council to ask for a variance.
One thing the agency doesnt
lack is clients with hungry ani-
mals. Many of the starving pets
were dumped on their new owners.
Others say they rescued abused
pets. One of the organizations cli-
ents, a man who is severely visu-
ally impaired, said he took in a
dog that had been beaten and
starved because the dog and the
man needed each other. Another
woman took in a malnourished
beagle she found cowering in high
grass along a highway.
Abandoned, starving animals are
a huge problem in the country.
In an interview this fall, Cooke
County Judge John Roane said he
knew all about the animal problem,
but admited the already-financial-
ly-challenged country couldnt do
much about it.
In the meantime, small orga-
nizations such as Helping Hands
Animal Food Pantry will likely
continue to get creative when it
comes to raising revenue.
Arieff said Pepsi Refresh was one
place to start.
Its been

ing and raising both money and
awareness along the way, to a small
non-profit that provides a digni-
fied way to provide food to school
kids who have little to eat on the
weekends (5 Loaves 4 Kids). she
said. Ideas within other categories
have ranged from financial literacy
training for minority students to
building community playgrounds,
improving equipment in science
classrooms and providing musical
instruments for the underserved.
Pepsi and its partner Global
Giving screen applications to make
sure they meet contest require-
ments and that the programs are
implemented as proposed, Arieff
This process is being used to
clarify and hone each idea, and as
a way to filter ideas that are inap-
propriate or illegal, she said.
In addition, Pepsi doesnt toler-
ate profanity or political fundrais-
ing, she added.
The project was built on
the belief that great ideas
can come from anyone,
anywhere, anytime.

Good sex education teaches
more than just abstinence
hat did you learn in
your high school sex
ed class? Do you even
I dont remember much of mine,
but I do know it was the sort of
stereotypical shoddy education
taught by a bored gym coach in
our required semester-long health
class where we had more movies
than tests. It involved not much
more than sterile memorization of
sex organs and a brief rundown of
scarily-depicted STDs, a compe-
tent educators nightmare.
If we learned about contracep-
tion or even abstinence I cant
recall. To ninth grade me, this
might have seemed fne as I was
embarrassed enough already by
that sort of thing and too nerdy
and awkward at the time to think
about much more than books
and friends. To slightly older (but
no less nerdy and awkward) me
though, the scenario I, and Im
sure most of you, experienced is
We are living in a curious time,
to say the least. On one hand, we
are presented with highly sexual-
ized images and messages from
the time we can walk, and yet on
the other hand, sexuality educa-
tion remains a point of contention
with politicians and school boards
and a point of embarrassment with
our parents. Its acknowledged,
then, that as people we are sexual
beings, but we arent supposed
to talk about it. Te people who
could give us factual and useful
informationwell-trained teach-
ers, people who specialize in the
feldarent given a real voice.
Potentially negative forces, like
advertising and stereotyped mas-
culine and feminine culture, fll
in the gap lef by our education
system and do give us messages.
Tese have real power to be harm-
For example, dominating imag-
es in the media and, unfortunately,
in peoples minds, still emphasize
masculine virility and control
and womens passivity. Tis helps
perpetuate rape culture, just as
continuous messages that the only
valid relationship is heterosexual
perpetuates sexual prejudice.
Is it any wonder that in the
areas where abstinence-only
education is taught there are
also some of the highest rates of
teen pregnancy? According to a
study released by the Guttnacher
Institutute, a non-proft group
which released a study earlier in
the year on teenage pregnancy.
Abstinence education is not sexu-
ality educationit could be one
small part of it, but its absolutely
not the only option and informa-
tion young people need to hear. A
good sexuality education encom-
passes a lot of things: information
on varied means of pregnancy pre-
vention as well as on self-respect,
abuse, empathy, peer pressure,
etc. It would take into account the
wide variety of sexual and gen-
der orientations experienced by
humanity, and take care to empha-
size and respect informed personal
choice of both men and women.
Tese and more are all elements of
a well-rounded curriculum.
Sexuality is an important, far-
reaching area of our lives to be
developed, learned about, and
explored. I am puzzled why devel-
oping this element of our beings
is so much more controversial and
lef to chance than our intellect
and physicality. With the enor-
mous potential for harm due to
poor sex ed, this is the last thing
that should be lef to chance.
Sexuality education should be
the responsibility of both schools
and parents, both striving to fll
the air with positive, well-rounded
messages to counteract the ever-
pervasive media.

ext week, President
Obama will make
a decision that will
go completely unchallenged.
Nobody will stop to consider
the ramifcations of such a
choice. Not even Obamas biggest
enemies in Congress.
When Obama pardons a
turkey on Tanksgiving, people
will play it of as a quirky,
lighthearted tradition. If only
they knew just how dangerous
that turkey could be.
But Alex, you might be
saying, turkeys are dumb,
fightless birds. Teyre not
dangerous at all! And thats just
what the turkeys want you to
think. Its a facade. A subterfuge.
Another big word. Turkeys
drown themselves by looking
at the sky during a rainstorm to
make you think theyre too dumb
to harm you. But theyre not flled
with rain. Teyre flled with
hate. And theyre going to use
that hate to someday rise up and
overthrow the human American
It doesnt take a genius to
realize that turkeys hate America.
Why wouldnt they? Turkeys have
been the victims of a delicious
genocide since 1620, when the
Pilgrims came to America in
search of cool new best friends.
Ever since that frst Tanksgiving,
turkeys have been slaughtered
by the millions each year, all in
the name of Americas supposed
superiority. Dont think just
because they lack the ability to
communicate that they arent
getting organized. Te turkey
rebellion is upon us.
Rumblings have already begun.
Earlier this year, a gang of turkeys
terrorized a neighborhood in
Athens, Georgia. One resident,
Carol Herzog, felt like a prisoner
in her own house, according to
the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Tese plump turkey gangs will
no doubt begin to succulently
organize and rain down juicy,
tender justice on neighborhoods
across the country. America
must prepare for the worst this
Tanksgiving, and I dont mean
the Dallas Cowboys. We cant
just pretend that this is just
some insane conspiracy theory
invented by a college newspaper
columnist because has a deadline
and no other ideas. If we dont
take this threat seriously, soon
we will all be trapped in a prison
of fear.
Lets not pretend that
this hasnt happened before,
either. Who can forget the
Independence Day Hot Dog
Revolt of 97, when cows, pigs
and chickens combined forces
to invade the Nathans Hot Dog

amalgam of horror and bloodlust.
In 2002, the PLO (Pretzel
Liberation Organization ) tried to
assassinate President Bush while
he watched an NFL playof game,
nearly choking him to death. And
last year, I got sick afer drinking
some milk I had previously
insulted. Food is in constant
search of revenge, and turkeys are
no diferent.
Tis is why Obama must break
with tradition and not pardon
a turkey, but kill it himself. He
must show America that hes not
sof on the greatest threat facing
America today (besides old
people). Ten he should declare
war on Turkey, just to cover all
his bases.

Former President George W.
Bushs new memoir Decision
Points is a valuable and respect-
able insight into one of modern
times most controversial presiden-
tial administrations.
Bush explores everything from
the administrations response to
hurricane Katrina to the economic
crisis that began at the end of his
term and has had lasting efects on
President Barack Obamas term.
Troughout the memoir, Bush
also details personal decisions and
family memories from his time as
our nations leader.
First, being able to admit to the
international community that you
were wrong takes guts.
Bush said he has a sickening
feeling when he thinks about
weapons of mass destruction in
Iraq and how that intelligence de-
bacle resulted in false information
and false motivations for the war.
He opens the book talking about
his alcoholic tendencies some-
thing most private individuals
dont admit to their family, much
less something former fgureheads
admit to the entire world.
Te explanations and the apolo-
gies in Decision Points deserve a
certain amount of respect from all
Republican or Democrat.
He held arguably the hard-
est job in American politics for
eight years and endured domestic,
international and personal battles
throughout that time.
Bush made an efort to describe
what he was feeling the day the
Twin Towers of Manhattan and the
Pentagon were struck by planes
in 2001 and how he was pre-
sented with information and what
constructed his decision-making
By admitting to his greatest
failures, Bush opens doors for new
discussions about his presidency
and current issues, such as the Iraq
War, the war in Afghanistan and
the economic crisis.
In the memoir, Bush tries to
understand what went wrong at
diferent times in presidency, pos-
sibly helping future generations
learn from their mistakes.
Bush could have tried to hide
or ignore the mistakes he made
by simply maintaining his stoic
silence afer he lef ofce in 2008.
Te memoir was released im-
mediately following the midterm
elections, when Republicans swept
the House and made a mighty
comeback to the national political
stage. Now Bush, the epicenter of
many of their pre-midterm prob-
lems, has publicly displayed what
went wrong.
In contrast, the memoir came
out when Democrats are facing
major setbacks locally and nation-
ally, and many representatives
and senators lost the election for
merely associating with the politics
of Obama or soon-to-be former
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
How this book is received na-
tionally, and how Bush is received
on his book tour, could give an
indication to election results in
2012 but more importantly, it
could refect the very nature of
Will the majority still consider
him an utter failure or will they
fnally understand Bushs side?
It is safe to say he did not
assume the role of Americas
president in order to throw our
economic system into chaos and to
wreak havoc on the international
system, too.
Bushs term ended poorly for
him and he could do nothing but
wait out the wave of criticism until
he was out of ofce.
Tis memoir will tell us much
of his life, his struggles, his suc-
cess and his decisions during the
presidency. But, more importantly,
it could teach a majority of Bush-
haters that many of the mistakes
that happened were not made
maliciously or with the intent to
destroy our country.
Bushs book will be one to learn
from and one that will provide an
inside perspective on the slips and
falls of the Bush administration
during its uphill, eight-year rise
and fall.

By Alex nichols
Wednesdays fu article
claimed that the reasoning be-
hind the decrease in fu clinic at-
tendance is because of laziness or
forgetfulness. I dont think this is
the case for most people I know
that actively choose not to get a
fu shot. How else do we build
immunities other than being ex-
posed to disease and developing
the antibodies to destroy it?
I understand this as the
concept behind vaccination--
infect people with a mild strain
so theyll develop the correct
antibodies to protect themselves.
Tis is a remarkable triumph of
human ingenuity but where the
fu shot is concerned, I feel weve
gone too far. Tere are defnitely
diseases that humans should
be vaccinated against but the
fu is only deadly for those with
weakened immunities: children,
elderly, sick folks. Tese people
should be vaccinated. Public
Health workers and pregnant
women can also beneft from a
fu shot. However, giving able-
bodies preventative medicine
helps create super-bugs, or
microorganisms that evolve to
become resistant to antibiotics.
Te fu shot vaccinates against a
few certain strains that we hope
will be the same strains circulat-
ing the population at the time.
Sometimes the strains in the
vaccine match the strains of the
season, other times not. Tis
means that even if you do get
vaccinated, you can still get the
fu because the vaccine they gave
you didnt include the strain that
you just happened to get.
If this is the case, the fu you
become infected with now has
access to a few diferent strains
from your vaccine, can mutate
and spread to other people as a
diferent strain than the fu you
got, or the fu(s) you were vac-
cinated against.
We are so afraid of getting sick
that we end up making ourselves
sicker in the end; be it hand-
santizing our way to a crippled
immune system, or preventa-
tively vaccinating and accidently
creating bigger, badder viruses.

with the LGBT Resource Center, the
Office of Multicultural Affairs and
the Counseling and Psychological
Services, will also recognize trans-
gender suicides this year.
Joel Layton, a senior from
Overland Park and a member of
Queers and Allies, said the events
addressed different aspects of being
transgender, or a transgender ally,
in the United States. A transgender
person is someone who identifies
with or expresses a gender identity
different from assigned at that per-
sons birth.
Layton said the murder rate of
transgender people was high one
out of every 1,000 murders in the
United States is a hate crime against
a transgender person, according to
the Human Rights Campaign.
In addition, according to
the National Transgender
Discrimination Survey, which was
hosted by the National Center for
Transgender Equality, 41% of trans-
gender people surveyed who were in
school said they had attempted sui-
cide, which is 25 times the national
So there is obviously reason to
remember those who are dead, and
try to use that memory to make a
better world for present and future
transgender people, Layton said.
He said students should not be
afraid to attend the events this week.
Layton said the purpose of the
weeks events was to teach people,
not scare them.
Dont think that you wouldnt
belong, dont think we wouldnt
want you there if you are interested
at all, he said.
Layton said that just as students at
the University paid attention to rac-
ism and sexism they should do the
same for transgender issues.
Transgender people have things
that they can teach non-transgen-
dered people, Layton said. I think
we could all grow by what they can
share with our straight society.

ToDAY: Transgender sensitivity workshop
The Ofce of Multicultural Afairs will host a faculty and staf
workshop on transgender people and transgender sensitivity.
The workshop addresses the need for the University to uphold
its recent decision to include gender identity and expression in
the Non-Discrimination Policy. The workshop will take place at
the sabatini Multicultural resource center from noon to 1 p.m.
This workshop is a response to the recent prominent suicides in
the LGbT community. It aims to teach participants about trans-
gender prejudices and how to prevent them. It will take place
from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Hashinger Hall.
THURSDAY: Trans Talk
A panel of transgender people will discuss the prejudices, igno-
rance and misinformation that often surrounds transgender people.
The primary reason
were doing this is for the
people who put up with
college kids every day of
their lives.

Friday night was one heck of a
game by that twin fellow. Not Mar-
cus Morris, though. Well, he didnt
play bad. But Markief Morris was
the star of the show (with a nod
to Tyshawn Taylor as best actor in
a supporting role) as the Jayhawks
scored the most points in a game
since Bill Self took over at Kansas
in a season-opening 113-75 rout of
the Longwood
M a r k i e f f
stufed the stat
sheet with a
14-point, 15-re-
bound, fve-
assist, four-steal,

formance. Tere
arent a lot of stat
lines like that,
which require
you to catch your
breath if you
read it in one go.
If Markief can
continue his stel-
lar play, starting
tonight against
Valparaiso, the
Jayhawks will
have one of the
top frontcourts
in the country.
For a guy to get 14, 15, fve and
two, thats a pretty good statistical
game, coach Bill Self said. Espe-
cially when he only played 26 min-
For a lot of the preseason, ques-
tions reigned about who would be
able to replicate the post presence
of Cole Aldrich.
Defensively, those questions re-
main. Te Lancers had 30 points in
the paint despite having no player
taller than 6-foot-8 on the roster.
All four Kansas posts are taller
than that. Monday night will pro-
vide a diferent type of challenge,
with Valparaiso boasting six play-
ers 6-foot-6 or taller. Te Crusad-
ers are widely recognized as a very
dangerous ofensive team, and the
Jayhawks will have to fnd an an-
swer to their defensive struggles.
Kansas has allowed all three op-
ponents it has faced this year, in-
cluding the exhibition season, to
shoot better than 40 percent from
the feld. Tat is all but unheard of
in the Bill Self era, in which the Jay-
hawks have fnished top in the Big

eff Withey might have set
the bar a little too high for
himself, at least until hes
fully recovered.
The sophomore center said
his right foot, the one in its
recovery stages after being bro-
ken in September, was sore in
practice all week. Coach Bill Self
said he planned for Withey to
play for only a couple minutes
against Longwood on Friday.
Instead, Withey said it was
feeling good. He ended up on
the court for 12 minutes, rack-
ing up eight points, two steals
and a block that sent the ball
flying dangerously fast into the
Now when he says he cant
do it, he wont have a built-in
excuse, Self said.
Withey knew it was a joke,
of course. But there was a bit
of truth to that statement. We
know what he can do, so lets
see some more.
He knows Im hurt, but Im
sure he does expect it, Withey
said in response to his coachs
statement. I expect it from
Just imagine what he could
do when hes healthy. Withey
said he was about a week away
from being 100 percent, if not

medication for his foot.

He came out Friday and
stunned everyone. Against
Emporia State the Tuesday
before, Withey ran as slow as
someone running from a killer
in a nightmare. It was painful
just to watch him and his recov-
ering footleg.
As the Morris twins and
Thomas Robinson were each
pumping out double-digit
points, Withey was the crowd
favorite. The crowd erupted
when he took the court and it
was especially boisterous after
his dunk and block.
This performance sent
out an important message to
Longwood and future Kansas
opponents: Dont forget about
And were all guilty of it.
When Withey was a senior in
high school, he was the No. 36
player overall recruit accord-
ing to, and the
eighth best center. He sat out a
semester at Kansas and has been
injured quite a few times.
Last season, he played behind
Cole Aldrich during the second
semester and never got integrat-
ed into the offense. Nobody has
seen him play for an extended
period of time in a long stretch
of games.
The guy was supposed to
be pretty darn good. Hes not
necessarily Cole Aldrich, but a
formidable seven-footer none-
theless. Double up on Marcus
and Markieff Morris, and pay
the price. Withey wont spot up
for three like the twins do, but
he is capable of dominating the
Opposing teams need to
adjust quickly to his presense.

LINCOLN, Neb. The nations
longest uninterrupted college foot-
ball series came to an end Saturday
night in Lincoln. Kansas and
Nebraska have played annually on
the gridiron since 1906, yet it was
never much of a rivalry. The No. 9
Cornhuskers 20-3 victory pushed
their record to 91-23-3 against the
Jayhawks, who last won in Lincoln
in 1968.
Because no one really expected a
close game to finish off the rivalry,
the Turner Gill storyline was harped
on all week. Gill wasnt much help in
that regard, however, playing down
the significance of his return to
Nebraskas Memorial Stadium where
he was a legend in the 1980s.
After the loss, however, Gill spoke
about his emotional return.
We came into the stadium about
11 this morning, just to have my
team come in, Gill said. There was
a little bit of awkwardness for me to
come into the stadium on the other
side, being here as an opponent ver-
sus being on the same side.
The Jayhawks offensive perfor-
mance was also a bit awkward to
Quarterback Quinn Mecham
completed three passes for 15 yards
while getting sacked six times on
the night.
The running game wasnt much
better, tallying a mere 72 yards on
the night. When your offense fails
to get off the team bus, the defense
cant make any mistakes if you want
to beat a team
like Nebraska.
Someti mes

people under
certain points,
Gill said. And
sometimes your
offense doesnt
play as well and
you have to keep
them off the
For a defense that was torched by
the likes of Kansas State and Baylor,
the 20 points given up to Nebraska
on the road was a surprisingly good
performance. However, the mistake-
free football needed to compen-
sate for the lack of offense wasnt
there. Two would-be interceptions
were dropped, and Nebraska was
able to convert on nine third down
attempts, keeping the defense on the
field for more than 36 minutes.
I dont think fatigue was a fac-
tor, Gill said. They just made some
crucial third downs early in the
game, and even later in the game.
Weve got to get off the field.
In an attempt to spark the flail-
ing offense, wide receiver Bradley
McDougald took snaps out of the
wildcat forma-
tion periodi-
cally, rushing
four times for
27 yards.
McDougal d
wasnt happy
with the offen-
sive perfor-
It was very
frustrating, he
said. Especially
as a wide receiver. We do so much
work on the outside, and then we
turn around and the quarterback
is scrambling, so we have to turn
around and block. That was a pretty
frustrating thing all night.
Even with the offensive struggles,
Saturday nights game was never out
of hand. There werent many big
plays, and in turn, the crowd was
relatively subdued.
It was a rather anticlimactic end-
ing to the rivalry one that first
began in 1906 and wasnt ever too
pleasant for fans of the crimson
and blue.
Longtime rivalry ends in ugly loss, 20-3

oing back to my hometown
to watch my old high schools
football team compete in a playoff
matchup was a nice break from the mo-
notonous toll of higher-level sports. In a
sporting age where allegations and fines
are as prevalent on SportsCenter as top
plays, returning to my small town to watch
some football reminded me of sports
before they went bad.
I didnt have to worry about a player
being benched for allegations that he took
money. Nobody was frowning on com-
ments that a player made in a press confer-
ence; it was football with fewer complica-
Holton is a town of 3,500 and supports
the team like its straight out of a movie.
Fans line the sidewalk hours before games,
making sure they have a good seat to
watch the team that brings hope to the
community. A sign that proclaims, WE
ARE HOLTON rises above the opposing
sideline, symbolizing the importance of
the Wildcats to the town.
After each game, a special moment
occurs as fathers, previous players and oth-
ers gather in the locker room, circling and
holding hands as each coach says a little bit
about the game.
Saturday marked the 150th win for
Holtons coach, Brooks Barta, who taught
me about football, but more important,
taught me lessons about life.
It was nice to be back in this environ-
ment and watch a high school football
game. I also enjoyed the intensity that
comes with a playoff game in which both
teams are trying to earn their way to the
state championship, instead of trying to
please the BCS gods into letting them play
in the National Championship. They battle
it out in a playoff system, which fairly
gives teams a chance to play in the state
I hope the NCAA will wise up and even-
tually implement the playoff system, even
if it is accompanied by a few bowl games.
However, with the media coverage, amount
of emphasis on coaches to win at all costs
and many other factors, college football
cant replicate the feel that high school
games create. Its something thats hard to
explain, but if you want to see for yourself,
head to Topeka and go north on Highway
75 next fall. Youll see for yourself why that
type of football is difficult to recreate.

Wasinger qualifes to run in Nationals
By lauren newman
Neither cross country team
qualifed for the national champi-
onships at the Midwest Regional
Championships on Saturday in
Peoria, Ill.
But junior Donny Wasinger
did qualify as an individual, fn-
ishing 10th out of 171 runners
with a career-best 10K time of
30:05.30. He will be the frst Kan-
sas male runner to compete in
Nationals since 2006. Te meet
will be held in Terra Haute, Ind.,
on Nov. 22.
The mens team finished 10th
overall in the Midwest Region
with 299 total points and
Wasinger lead the pack. Senior
Nick Caprario was Kansas No.
2 runner, plac-
ing 31st over-
all. Sophomore
Josh Baden
placed 64th
with a time
of 31:40:53 to
finish third
among Jayhawk runners. Other
male runners who participated
were junior Austin Bussing,
freshmen Nikki Trooien-Smith
and Jose Luis Muoz.
The womens team took sixth
place overall. The lead runner
for the team was junior Rebeka
Stowe once again. She placed 18th
in the 6K with a time of 20:40.33.
The Jayhawks
No. 2 runner
was sopho-
more Natalie
Becker. She
finished at
21:07.74, tak-
ing 33rd place.
Rounding out the No. 3 spot
was junior Tessa Turcotte, who
clocked in at 21:08.31, taking
35th place. Other women who
participated were sophomores
Allie Marquis, Kara Windisch
and Kyra Kilwien and senior
Amanda Miller.
The Midwest Regional
Championships marks the end of
the 2010 season for the teams.
Assistant coach Michael
Whittlesey was quite proud of
Wasinger and the effort he exert-
ed during the meet.
Wasinger did what he needed
to do and competed the whole
way through, Whittlesey said in

to 86-67 victory
assocIaTed Press
SYRACUSE, N.Y. Rick Jackson
had 17 points and a career-high 13
rebounds, Brandon Triche added
16 points and No. 10 Syracuse beat
Canisius 86-67 on Sunday.
It was the 831st career victory
for Orange coach Jim Boeheim,
moving him past Jim Phelan of
Mount St. Marys into fifth place
all-time in Division I victories.
Syracuse (2-0) has beaten
Canisius 20 straight times. The
Golden Griffins (1-1) are 1-15
against Syracuse when it is ranked,
the lone win coming Feb. 25, 1967,
in Buffalo.
Scoop Jardine had 13 points and
eight assists, C.J. Fair had 11 points,
and Kris Joseph 10 for the Orange.
Greg Logins led Canisius with
17 points and Syracuse native
Elton Frazier had 16 points and 12
Syracuse, which struggled again
early, broke open a close game
with a 7-0 spurt to start the second
half as Jackson fed Fab Melo for a
layup. Triche followed with a layup
off the glass and a 3-pointer from
the left wing to give the Orange a
39-29 lead.
Canisius rallied behind consecu-
tive 3s by Alshwan Hymes and
Logins, but the Orange took com-
mand with a 12-4 spurt midway
through the half.
After a 3 by Robert Goldsberry
and a free throw by Logins moved
the Griffs within 54-45, Jackson,
who had a tough first half, hit a
10-foot jumper to start the Syracuse
surge. Triche then swished a 3 from
the left corner and Jardine assisted
on consecutive fast-break baskets
by Triche and Fair to give the
Orange a 66-49 lead with 8:34 to
The Orange had their share of
troubles early trying to penetrate as
the athletic Griffs blocked six shots
in the first half. Jackson, a career
59 percent shooter, the fourth-best
mark in Syracuse history, was 3 of
10 in the first half but was active
defensively with four blocks.
Jardine, who missed all seven
shots he took and did not score in
the opener against Northern Iowa,
had 10 points and four assists to
help keep the Orange close.
Syracuse trailed 25-21 after
Goldsberry rattled in a 3-pointer
at 8:14, but a follow by Joseph tied
it at 25-all and his three-point play
helped Syracuse to a 32-29 half-
time lead.
The Orange shot just 30.8 percent
in the first half. They rebounded by
hitting 52.5 percent in the second
while holding Canisius to 34.3 per-
cent shooting for the game. The
Griffs were 9 of 35 from beyond
the arc.
Melo and the 6-foot-10 Keita
each played 18 minutes and fouled
out of the Oranges 68-46 season-
opening win over Northern Iowa
on Friday night.

Just like today, Krysten is work-
ing hard and Tania is wide open
because Tanias guy is down there
with her, so we throw that to Tania
because she spaces the defense and
she can get up and score, coach
Bonnie Henrickson said.
Once again, Kansas found suc-
cess in its ball rotation and bench
depth with every player seeing time
on the court and scoring.
If we can get that kind of lead
and not drop off then I think every-
one today was able to bring some-
thing to the table whether on the
offensive end or the defensive end,
Henrickson said.
The rotation takes pressure off of
specific players when everyone can

for loose balls. Kansas had 16 floor

more where the penetration went,
Henrickson said.
Senior Marisha Brown empha-
sized the importance of creating
offense from defensive plays.
I just try to get in the passing
lane and stay intense because I
dont want to take a play off, so I do
whatever I can to help my team,
Brown said.
The team is still struggling with
turnovers and ended the game with
16. Many of the turnovers were
caused by miscommunication on
We were aggressive today and we
had been in pretty good shape after
the first two games we were positive
assistant to turnover and we were
sloppy with it today, Henrickson
said. We threw some things that
werent going to get there and we
threw some things that should have
been a shot.
Goodrich thinks that the passing
trouble can be fixed with more prac-
tice and more game situations.
I think we just need to be more
cautious of where we throw it,
Goodrich said. I think we see it and
then we pause and then we throw
it and it is too late then. I think we
need to just throw it when we see it
and not wait.

Kansas out rebounded South
Dakota 53-33.
South Dakota was held to 16
points in the frst half.
The Coyotes did not score for
over eight minutes in the frst
half while Kansas scored 13.
She didnt have the most first-
half minutes of this years freshman
class on Sunday, but Keena Mays
momentum-changing contribu-

point guard even more play time
during the second half.
With only six first half minutes,
Mays energy was quickly real-
ized by South Dakota coach Ryun
Williams, who almost immediately
called a timeout. The stall didnt
slow Mays. In the next minute
of play, Mays earned an assist, a
defensive rebound and headed to
the line after getting fouled while
attempting to put back her own
missed layup.
Making few rookie mistakes, she
ended the game with five assists,
seven rebounds and multiple
deflections but dont expect the
humble freshman to brag about it.
I produced more in the second
half because I was still just getting
my feet wet in the first, Mays said.
I played better defense in the sec-
ond, but I still need to take better
care of the ball.
Mays had five turnovers, most of
which resulted from her hesitance
to take the open jumper. Freshman
nerves still plague her shooting
confidence, leading her to opt for
the extra pass over taking the shot.
The Jayhawks struggled to get
the ball inside and keep post-play
active, something Mays said shes
trying to work on in her own game.
In keeping that focus, Mays made
some passes she shouldnt have, but
coach Bonnie Henrickson said she
was proud of her eagerness to keep
the posts involved.
I love that Keena was so aggres-
sive, but some of those she just
needs to take the shot and turn
the guy shes trying to throw it
to into a rebounder, Henrickson
said. She sees it, but shes got to
throw a better ball.
What might still be a work in
progress on the offensive end,
Mays made up for with a dynamic
defensive performance. Mays con-
sistent help defense enabled her to
grab six defensive rebounds. She
said she was glad to have helped
get the team moving with those
rebounds that opened up fast break
Her inexpe-
rience wasnt
evident in the
speed she used
to push the ball
up the floor.
She said she
loved playing
a fast-paced
game. Sharing
the floor with
teammate Angel Goodrich gave
her team more of an opportunity
to do so, she said. The two point
guards took the floor together only
a few times during the game, but
Goodrich said she hoped it would
happen more often.
If we get to play like that more
and more, Im going to get more
excited because she sees a lot of
things and keeps the ball moving,
Goodrich said.
Goodrich said she liked hav-
ing the option to rely on Mays
to take the point because it gave
her more opportunities to play the
shooting guard and look to score.
Together, the two present a new
threat: speed. While the inside
game was largely overlooked in the
South Dakota face-off, the pace of
the game was recognizably quicker
with Goodrich and Mays in the
Still, Goodrich said she hoped
Mays would build confidence in
her ability to change the games
momentum on her own. She said
she believed Mays first-half min-
utes were enough to prove the
effect Mays can make on the pace
and outcome of a game.
Having someone come in the
game and do that to get us going
just gives us a spark, Goodrich
said. She can do that every time
she steps in the game because
she has everything a point guard
Goodrich said right now, Mays
needed to focus on being a little
more selfish.
While on
the bench,
Go o d r i c h
said she
noticed Mays
unwi l l i ng-
ness to risk a
miss. She said
she thought
Mays would
have fewer
turnovers as soon as she garnered
the confidence to shoot instead of
resort to a risky pass.
Goodrich said in practice, Mays
was confident in her ability to
knock down the open jumper, but
hasnt showed the same initiative
come game time. Against South
Dakota, Mays was not only tenta-
tive to take the jump shot, but
also shied away from open layup
Keena gets to the rim a lot
and she could easily score, but she
tries to pass, said Marisha Brown,
senior guard.
Mays reluctance led her to score
only five points, despite numer-
ous opportunities to reach double-
digit scoring. Still, her teammates
are confident that with experience
Mays will develop the self-assur-
ance she needs to up her scoring
Shes really impressing me a
lot, Goodrich said. She did make
some freshman passes, but itll

Quote of the Game
There was a little bit of awk-
wardness for me to come into the
stadium on the other side, being
here as an opponent versus being
on the same side.
- Turner Gill on returning to Nebraska as an
Ofense: Quarterback Quinn Mecham threw
for 15 yards on three completions. Thats all
anybody needed to know about the ofenses
lackluster performance saturday night. The
ofensive line didnt protect Mecham either, as
he was fushed out of the pocket or sacked on
many occasions. The stable of running backs
only put up 72 yards as well, and three points
was all kansas could score. F.
Defense: The defense played well throughout
the game, holding Nebraska to well under its
season average of 37 points a game. Third down
conversions were tough though, as the Huskers
completed nine of their 17 third down attempts.
The defense also dropped two interceptions,
but overall the unit continued to show signs of
improvement. B +
Special teams: D.J. Beshears once again made
his case that he might be the best ofensive
weapon for the Jayhawks. He returned fve kicks
for 139 yards, with a long of 45 yards. Jacob
Branstetter was a perfect 1 for 1 on feld goals,
nailing a 42-yard kick in the third quarter. B.
Coaching: carl Torbushs defense showed
improvements once again, holding Nebraskas
ofense to only 20 points. chuck Longs ofense
was extremely conservative. Quinn Mechams
interception in the third quarter justifed the
play-calling, however. Mecham had D.J. Beshears
open on a go route down feld, but under threw
him for an interception instead. A good pass
could have led to a touchdown. Overall I give
the coaches a B.
Turning Point
Mechams third quarter interception should
have been a touchdown. That would have
shrunk the Nebraska lead to 17-7, but the of-
fense couldnt get much else in the second half.
Kory Carpenter
A week after giving up 45 points
to Colorado, the Jayhawk defense
gave up only 20 points to one of the
highest scoring offenses in college
Before the game against Kansas,
the Husker offense was 14th in
the country in points scored. Led
by freshman quarterback Taylor
Martinez, the Huskers scored an
average of 37.1 points a game.
Against Kansas, they were able to
score only 20.
Texas is the only defense that has
held Nebraska to less than 20 points
this season, and the only team to
beat the Huskers this season.
After Saturdays game, coach
Turner Gill said he was pleased
with the way the defense was able to
keep the Jayhawks in the game.
Sometimes you have to hold
people under certain points, Gill
said. And sometimes your offense
doesnt play as well and you have
to keep them off the board, but for
the most part I think in most games
you have a great opportunity to win
this game.
Martinez, who has rushed for
over 100 yards five times this year
and passed for over 100 yards eight
times this year, was held to only 71
yards on the ground and 167 yards
in the air. It was only the second
time all season he did not account
for an offensive touchdown, the
first being Nebraskas lone loss to
A major contributor to Kansas
defensive performance was fresh-
man cornerback Tyler Patmon,
who had three tackles, an intercep-
tion and two pass breakups for the
Im proud of my defense,
Patmon said. But at the end of
the day we didnt get the win so it
means nothing, but I am proud of
those guys.
The Jayhawks held the Huskers to
only six second-half points on two
field goals and created two turn-
overs in the third quarter. However,
the struggles on offense made it
hard for the Jayhawks to keep it
close without additional turnovers.
I think overall we played a pret-
ty good game, sophomore defen-
sive end Toben Opurum said. But
if we were able to capitalize on more
turnovers I think it could have been
a different ballgame.
Nebraskas 20 points were the
fewest points allowed by the Kansas
defense in Big 12 conference play,
and the fewest points allowed since
North Dakota State scored only six
in the season opener on September

ward. Marcus said Friday that
he was doing the dirty work
on his brothers big night, but
the Jayhawks need him to help
Markief more than that.
I told him before the game
started that hes gotta be a mon-
ster on the boards, Marcus
said. Im going to help him, but
I just box out. I just make sure
I box out and he can go get it.

Self didnt buy that explana-

lack thereof.
Teyll talk tonight, he
joked afer the game Friday.
Get their stories straight.
But Marcus said the on-foor
relationship between the two
has always been that way. As
Marcus said, Markief is big-
ger. No matter that Markief is
roughly an inch taller and has
seven pounds on his brother
(hardly a huge diference maker
at 6-9 and 225 pounds) the stats
dont lie. Marcus said that in
high school, the last time the
two started together, Markief
averaged about 17 boards to
Marcus 11. Tat may sound
like brotherly exaggeration, but recruiting analyst
Shay Wildeboor backed up the
Marcus ofered an additional
explanation of his twins re-
bounding prowess.
Hes like a veteran. Like a
young veteran, that just knows
the game, Marcus said. Even if
he doesnt jump, he always box-
es and makes sure the ball falls
in a pocket. He has great hands,
but everybody on the team calls
him a veteran.
Of course, theres always
room for improvement, and
even though Markief said he
was happy with his career per-
formance, hes got some ideas as
to how to make his game better.
Wish I couldve got some
threes up.
Hell have the chance to rec-
tify that tonight. Valparaiso was
the worst defensive team in the
Horizon League last year, on a
points per possession basis.

Kansas (1-0) scored 19 points on
the fast break in its 113-75 victory
over Longwood (0-1). Kansas also
caused 24 Longwood turnovers,
leading to 36 Jayhawk points.
Junior guard Tyshawn Taylor
led Kansas in transition, scoring
six of his 17 points on dunks.
Taylor opened the game scoring
with a fastbreak dunk on an assist
from junior forward Markieff
We just envisioned us being
a fast team, Taylor said. I think
tonight we got an opportunity to
play fast.
Taylor himself got off to a quick
start, scoring 13 points in the first
I got a lot of easy shots and
fast break points, Taylor said. I
was just in the right place at the
right time.
Taylor said the team needed
to keep playing fast and be less
careless, especially himself. Taylor
had six of the teams 12 turnovers,
compared with his three total dur-
ing exhibition play.
Coach Bill Self said that Taylor
didnt need to make careless mis-
takes in the backcourt that led to
easy points for the opposition.
Hes made some plays that you
go, Wow, and hes made some
plays and you go, Ugh, wow, Self
said. Hes a wow guy, both good
and bad.
Self also said that Taylor and
the team as a whole was fast, with
a speed comparable to that of the
2007-2008 National Championship
The Jayhawks might be speedy,
but Self said the other teams play
would also dictate the overall
tempo of the game.
If a team only has three players
on defense, then the transition
game will be there for Kansas. If a
team quickly gets back on defense,
however, Kansas will have to set
up its half-court offense.
The tempo of the Longwood
game helped Kansas speed. A year
ago, Longwood scored 0.95 points
on average per possession, but
gave up 1.1 points per possession
on defense.
Longwood junior center Antwan
Carter said that the Jayhawks up-
tempo pace was difficult to guard.
Its real tough because they love
to push in transition, make or
miss, Carter said.

1-0 (0-0)
Brandon Wood, junior guard
Wood led the crusaders with 20 points in
Fridays victory. He went 7-16 from the feld
as well as 3-7 from behind the arc in only 20
minutes of play. not only can Wood score, but
he can distribute. He added six assists as well.

Erik Buggs, sophomore guard

Buggs did not score in the crusaders victory
on Friday, but he did have six assists. Buggs did
not even attempt a shot or free throw. Buggs
has the ability to score, but he moves the ball
around well for valparaiso. He started 23 of 29
games his freshman year. He appeared in six
games last season before he was shut down
because of an injury.

Howard Little, senior guard

Little scored 17 points and went 6-8 from
the feld on Friday. Little is a force inside. He
shot better than 60 percent from inside the
three-point line. Little, the cousin of Jayhawk
mario Little is one of the few players who has a
mid-range jumper with basketball today being
about dunks and three pointers.

Ryan Broekhof, sophomore guard

Broekhof is new to the starting lineup. He
played in all 32 games last season while start-
ing six of them. The australian-native is guard
who can post like the Jayhawks mario Little or
Travis releford. Broekhof had 18 points on 7-11
shooting in 21 minutes on Friday.

Cory Johnson, senior forward

This is not Johnsons frst time seeing the
Jayhawks. He played for Iowa state from 2006-
2008. Last season was his frst with valporaiso.
He averaged 15.6 and 5.8 rebounds per game,
which were fourth and eight in the league,
respectively. He was a member of the all-new-
comer team and was named a second Team all-
Horizon League selection. He scored 17 points
in 14 minutes on Friday. Johnson is a consistent
shooter, who was ranked 20th in the nation in
feld goal percentage (.556).

Sixth Man
Jay Harris, freshman guard
not to be confused with esPns Jay Harris,
this Jay Harris was the ffth-best recruit out of
Illinois according to scouts Inc. He averaged 28
points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists per game while
shooting 44 percent from behind the arc and
87 percent from the free throw line for oswego
east High school, oswego Ill. In the crusaders
frst game, Harris scored nine points and had six
assists in 25 minutes.

1-0 (0-0)
Tyshawn Taylor, junior guard
Taylor responded to ofseason questions
about his ability to be the lead guard to the tune
of a 17-point, 10-assist season debut. The 10 as-
sists were the most for a Jayhawk since sherron
collins had 11 in december 2008. Taylor showed
that hes one of the best guards in the country in
the open foor, helping the Jayhawks to 19 fast
break points. after that performance, he gets a
ffth star for the frst time.

Tyrel Reed, senior guard

reed does do more for the Jayhawks than hit
threes, but it would be wrong to say thats not
his primary purpose when hes in the game. The
Jayhawks sniper has knocked down more than
40 percent of his career three point attempts,
but struggled through the exhibition season
and hit just 2-of-7 in the opener.

Travis Releford, sophomore guard

Until theres a decision on Josh selby, this spot
is relefords. Brady morningstar and mario Little
havent done near enough to claim a starting
job, and releford demonstrated a surprising
athleticism in running the fast break. When he
and Taylor hit their stride in transition, chances
are something exciting is about to happen.

Marcus Morris, junior forward

marcus is still the best player on the Jay-
hawks; one game wont change that. But he
does need to improve on the boards, and quick.
Twin brother markief carried the load with 15
rebounds, but there is no way a 6-foot-9 forward
with marcus athleticism should have only two
rebounds against Longwood, which had no
player taller than 6-8.

Markief Morris, junior forward
markief was the better twin Friday night for
perhaps the frst time since the UcLa game
in december of last year. His numbers were
expected to go up with a starting role and
increased minutes, but only a blind optimist
would have predicted the stat-stufng perfor-
mance markief put on Longwood. all of a sud-
den, markief averaging a double-double seems
like a legitimate possibility.

Sixth Man
Thomas Robinson, sophomore forward
He was lost in the shufe a bit Friday.
markief morris and Jef Withey played so far
above their levels from last year that robinsons
16-point, seven-rebound went quietly by with-
out much notice. It was a huge step forward
for him, though, as was turning the ball over
just twice in 19 minutes. It would have been
possible to set a watch by robinsons consis-
tent turnover problems last year and he looked
much more comfortable Friday.

Valpo noteS
The Jayhawks open the Las Vegas Invitational tonight
The scouting report on
valparaiso is pretty simple right
now. They can score on any-
one and anyone can score
on them. Homer drews squad
posted 111 points in a season
opening win, so its safe to as-
sume that there will be another
high-octane ofensive battle
in allen Fieldhouse tonight.
The crusaders were second in
the Horizon League last year in
points per possession, behind
the eventual national runner-up
Butler Bulldogs, so its no secret
that they can score. The question
is whether or not the Jayhawks
can hold the crusaders ofense
enough to pull out a win.
Tyshawn Taylor
Hes got plenty of eyes on him
at all times, and for good reason.
If youre in allen Fieldhouse, look
up when Taylor gets the ball with
room to run. If
youre watch-
ing from home,
keep those
eyes on the Tv
set. Taylor has
always been
an incredible
athlete, and he
can absolutely
fy with the ball in his hands.
now that the Jayhawks ofense is
taking on more of his uptempo
personality with the departure of
sherron collins and cole aldrich,
Taylor is primed to shine. He had
six turnovers Friday night, but as
coach Bill self said Friday night
after the game, you take the bad
with the good with Taylor.
Who will help Markief Mor-
ris carry the rebounding load?
Thomas robinson was
excellent with seven rebounds
in 19 minutes of the bench,
but markief morris cannot be
expected to have 15 rebounds
every night. Unlike undersized
Longwood, valparaiso has six
players listed at 6-foot-6 or taller,
including 7-foot-1 croatian cen-
ter Hrvoje vucic. marcus morris
two-rebound performance isnt
even close to cutting it for the
Jayhawks, who need him to aver-
age around seven or eight with
cole aldrichs absence looming in
the paint. marcus said he was do-
ing the boxing out for his twins
15-rebound night, but Bill self
wasnt buying that post-game,
and neither am I.
kansas can get into transition early and often. The Jayhawks are
at their best and their most exciting when they can run.
markief morris was excellent with outlet passes Friday, recording a
career-high fve assists. His ability to start the break, and Tyshawn
Taylor and Travis relefords abilities to fnish it, lead to plenty of
roar-inducing highlight reel plays.
valparaiso comes out gunning from behind the arc. They struggled
in their regular season opener, shooting only a little over 30 per-
cent from three-point range, but hit better than 39 percent from
long in their exhibition season. If the crusaders start getting three
points on their trips down the foor, kansas hasnt shown that it has
an answer.
Kansas 103, Valparaiso 79
We really have to improve
our rebounding. We gave up 20
ofensive rebounds tonight, which
is a major concern for us head-
ing into kansas. But I thought our
shooting, our defense and the way
we shared the ball were all very
superb tonight.
