Heels debut new helmets

New football helmet designs will be worn in the next two games.
By Nicole Comparato
When UNC football players open their lockers to find brand new equipment, its like Christmas morning. At least thats what it feels like for quarterback Bryn Renner especially seeing the new helmets the team will sport during its next two home games.

This is the first year we have this new equipment, and I know all the guys in the locker room really like it, he said. It brings a sort of energy to a team. Players will wear the classic blue helmets this Saturday against Idaho, with an added detail: The helmets will feature an American flag-inspired decal in honor of Military Appreciation Day. But the big change is the custom-made white helmets that the team will debut for the white-out Virginia Tech game next Saturday. The team hasnt sported white helmets since the 1960s, said Jason Freeman, assistant football

equipment manager. Freeman said the changes in helmet design are being done to keep up with a national trend. Its what the landscape of college football has become, he said. You almost have to have more helmets, more jerseys its what a lot of the kids want to see these days. The white helmets will be complemented by white jerseys and white pants, said Dominic Morelli, UNC football business operations and equipment manager. Theyre going to be looking like Mr. Clean out there, he said.

Everything has to be clean and crisp. We dont want players to worry about anything
Dominic Morelli,
UnC football business operations and equipment manager

Freeman, along with the rest of the football equipment team, has been working on the lengthy process of applying the American flag decals to players helmets for Saturdays game. The white helmets for the Virginia Tech game were ordered before the summer started, costing $30,000 to make for all 120 of the players.

Its an expensive process to order a whole new set of helmets for everybody because youre talking 120 guys, he said. But UNC isnt the only school putting down large sums to secure festive uniforms. Many other schools are part of this trend, Freeman said, with Oregon leading

With 21-member group, chancellor search begins

the search committee will have its first organizational meeting Oct. 5.

New Chancellor
In the boards meeting Thursday, Hargrove said the search committee will have its first organizational meeting on Oct. 5, where it will receive its charge from UNC-system President Thomas Ross. Members include faculty, staff, alumni and community members, such as Kenneth Broun, a former Chapel Hill mayor who also served on the 2007 search committee that eventually chose Thorp. Hargove said the variety of people will enhance the search for Thorps successor. University policy requires representation from various constituent groups, such as faculty, alumni and staff, Hargrove added. He said chancellor search committees are large to accommodate for diverse interests, and they usually have about 20 members. It will allow for a broader input, he said. We want the benefit of the full outreach of the University community. The committee serves with an advisory purpose, he said, and will present a list of finalists to the Board of Trustees. The board will then vote and make

its recommendation to UNC-system President Thomas Ross. Ross will ultimately recommend a candidate to the UNC-system Board of Governors, which will elect the new chancellor. Hargrove said he wanted committee members to have appropriate credentials, but to also have a personal connection to the University. We wanted people who are really knowledgeable about the University, and who know the kind of qualities a chancellor at this University would need to succeed. Barbara Hyde, a member of the Board of Trustees and vice chairwoman of the search committee, said the range of backgrounds on the committee will expand the search. There are many strong individuals who collectively represent all of the constituents of the University, she said. She said the committee will look for candidates whose values align with the Universitys, and someone with the

UNC spends big money to get home games

UNC will pay Idaho $800,000 to play in Kenan Saturday.
By Melvin Backman
Senior Writer

Out of conference, out of pocket

Non-conference opponents for UNCs revenue sports get a cut of the money generated by home games.

Let the search begin. The 21 people who will be charged with finding the Universitys next leader have been named, and they will spend the rest of the academic year combing through the candidates. The final choice will replace Chancellor Holden Thorp, who announced Sept. 17 that he will resign in June. After attempts to convince Thorp to stay were unsuccessful, Chairman of the Board of Trustees Wade Hargrove scrambled throughout the past week to form the new chancellors search committee, which is made up of a diverse set of people, he said. We wanted to have a representative composite of the University community, said Hargrove, who will chair the search committee. We worked hard to try to achieve a representative group.

School Elon Idaho ECU Amount

Although the UNC mens basketball team may be more popular and successful than the football squad, the latter still makes more money. In fact, the athletic department can pay the University of Idaho $800,000 to play in Kenan Stadium on Saturday and still profit from the game. The payout, which is the largest ever given to a Tar Heel opponent, and the story behind it provide a glimpse into the complex, big-money world of college football. UNC plays 12 regular season football games each year. Since 2008, seven of those

Rawlings: All is pretty well here

hunter rawlings said the University is faring well compared to its peers.
By Caroline Leland
Staff Writer

DTH ONLINE: Visit dai- to read about the AAUs report on the importance of research universities.

Despite a seemingly endless series of scandals and leadership transitions, UNC is lucky. This was the message of Hunter Rawlings, president of the Association of American Universities, when he spoke to the UNC Board of Trustees Thursday. From everything that Ive seen, Chapel Hill, despite setbacks, has suffered less than almost any other flagship in American public education, he said to a full crowd in Gerrard Hall.

Rawlings was recruited by Chancellor Holden Thorp to conduct a review of UNCs balance of athletics and academics after former Gov. Jim Martin completes his ongoing independent review of academics. In his speech, Rawlings said all American public universities are facing hard times, and UNC is doing well in comparison to its peers. He said one major problem is the unprecedented turnover rate of public university presidents. In the past 18 months, 13 presidents of the 35 public universities in the Association of American Universities have left their positions most of them prematurely,

he said. Rawlings identified several reasons for this instability, including mishandling of athletics, state budget cuts and university corporatization. Some of these businesses that we are running at our universities create clear conflicts of interest with the academic programs, he said. Weve got to stay fixated on quality undergraduate education. Rawlings proposed several tactics for confronting the Universitys problems. Its going to take a concerted effort, he said. I cannot overemphasize the importance of transparency. He also stressed the importance of university boards supporting presidents. He said the loyalty of UNCs Board of Trustees is just one of many reasons for optimism.

In spite of everything Ive just said, all is pretty well here, he said, adding that the University is doing well in respect to its peers. Youre lucky, he said. UNC sophomore Luis Segovia said its a privilege to attend a public university that is both affordable and high quality. There are private universities that charge more in tuition that are not up to par with UNC, he said. Thorp said UNC is successful because it stays focused on the value of a liberal arts education. These subjects address the essence of the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, he said. It has always been part of our heritage to innovate and lead. Contact the desk editor at

DTH ONLINE: Find out how

The No. 1 womens soccer team in the land came to Chapel Hill on Thursday night, and the No. 1 womens soccer team in the land left Chapel Hill with its unblemished record still intact. Top-ranked Florida State (10-0-0, 3-0-0) beat No. 13 North Carolina 1-0 Thursday night at Fetzer Field, a loss that both stung and proved valuable for UNC. The Tar Heels (5-3-2, 1-2-1) outshot the Seminoles 14 to five including seven to two shots on goal and though they lost, they learned that they could hang with the best team in the country. We are leaving this game with the feeling that we can play with anyone, head coach Anson Dorrance said. Had we beaten them, we would have left this game with the feeling that we can beat anyone. There was no change in our psychological platform following the loss. UNC forced FSU goalkeeper Kelsey

why the Tar Heels couldnt find the back of the net against Florida State Thursday night.

Wys to make seven saves, while the Tar Heels keepers had only one. UNC had four corner kicks, and the Seminoles had one. Florida State, though, did what UNC couldnt: Turn one of its goal-scoring chances into a goal. Theres been games where were on the other side of that, junior forward Kealia Ohai said. Thats just how soccer is. You got to finish the ball. We did play hard, and we did dominate, I would say. But we didnt get it done, and they did Thats the difference. Ohai looked destined to find the back of the net after a first half of piercing runs through and around FSUs defense, but her efforts went unrewarded. One of our biggest game plans was just to put extreme pressure on them, senior midfielder Maria Lubrano said. I

think we could count on one hand how many times they got in our half. The second half was more of the same UNC created most of the chances and held most of the possession but after FSUs Dagny Brynjarsdottir slotted the ball past UNC goalie Bryane Heaberlin, the Tar Heels pressed for a goal. I think we did get a little too frustrated, pushing a little too much after (the goal) instead of letting things come to us, Lubrano said. And after UNCs Crystal Dunn powered into the box and forced Wys to make an acrobatic save with less than six minutes to go, the Tar Heels would have no more close chances to capture the elusive goal. UNC lost, and it didnt score, but it learned something when the No. 1 team in the land came to Chapel Hill on Thursday night: Its not too far behind. Contact the desk editor at

Production parodies classic shows

Greenbridge Condominiums is back in business. After a two-year sales freeze, units in the 10-story Rosemary Street mixed-use development are back up for sale. About one-third of Greenbridges 97 condominiums are currently occupied. Betty Harbourt, executive vice president of The Marketing Directors, which handles Greenbridges sales and marketing, said about 15 contracts are pending, and she isnt sure when the building will be at full occupancy. Thats all up to the market, she said. I would say 12 to 18 months. Sales ceased in November 2010, after Greenbridges previous owner failed to make payments on its loans. Foreclosure proceedings began in April 2011. Almost a year ago, Greenbridge was purchased by Square Mile Capital Management LLC, Invesco Ltd. and Canyon Capital Realty Advisors LLC as one of 29 distressed loans in an $889-million national portfolio. Harbourt said the Chapel Hill location was one of the main reasons the buyers, who took over in August, were attracted to the portfolio. As they evaluated their opportunity, Greenbridge was a star, she said. Theyre very excited to have such a well-built building in Chapel Hill, which is a market that embraces multi-family living and doesnt have many options. When Greenbridge opened in fall 2010, it was touted for its environmentally friendly features. But the development sparked criticism, protests and bomb threats from those who opposed its location many worrying it would further gentrify the historically black and low-income Northside neighborhood. Harbourt said all the propertys amenities are in place, including an event space for residents called the Sky Lounge. Cindy Spuria is the owner of LIGHT Art+Design the only business in Greenbridge Spuria said she is excited the sales freeze is over because people assumed the building was closed. Business has picked up since the units started selling again, she said. Once the property starts to sell, I think the whole area will develop around it. I think it will come to life, she said. Michael Parker, who has lived at Greenbridge since July 2010, said his favorite part of his two-bedroom condominium is its large deck and proximity to both Chapel Hill and Carrboro. It is an underappreciated location, he said. I can walk to all of the restaurants in Carrboro and all of the restaurants in Chapel Hill. Contact the desk editor at

ompany Carolina is giving Broadway a makeover. The companys Broadway Abridged condenses five classic productions into 15-minute parodies perfect for people with short attention spans. Its five zany and absurd summaries of shows that are of a particular interest to theater-going audiences, said Ben Elling, a junior and the director of The Glass Menagerie, one of the five shows. Broadway Abridged marks the directorial debuts of the five students leading the shows. Each mini-play exaggerates and satirizes elements of the original version. Sophomore Amanda Ackovitz, who directs Legally Blonde: The Musical, said her version pokes fun at the original by using numerous references to Mean Girls. Junior Will Hawkins, director of West Side Story, said he hopes the performance will teach audience members that Broadway shows dont have to be on a pedestal its OK to see flaws in the shows and laugh at them.

Which aspect of your show do you like the most, and what drew you to your show?
Legally Blonde: The Musical
What really drew me to Legally Blonde was that it has been one of the most ridiculous plays to hit Broadway in many years. I was drawn to it because its a fun show.

When I was 14, Wicked was my favorite show I remember my family going to Myrtle Beach, and I listened to the soundtrack the entire weekend and absolutely fell in love with it.

UNC-tested aortic repair devices approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
The Food and Drug Administration has recently approved two UNC-tested endovascular aortic repair devices. Mark Farber, a doctor and director of UNC Aortic Disease Management, served as the national principal investigator for clinical trials of both devices. Aortic Disease Management is part of the UNC Center for Heart and Vascular Care and conducts clinical trials for the advancement of aortic treatments. The aorta is human bodys main artery and carries oxygen from the heart to the rest of the body. Aortic disease can stretch, weaken or damage the aorta and is potentially fatal.

Time of the essence for UNCs Presson

Cross country runner Isaac Presson is on the right track.

of a Division I cross country runner. Another day of running and routine.

Casual progression run

The van ride is quiet. The runners have been awake for less than an hour. Some stare ahead at the road. Others try to sleep. Its never a good sign when you have to start running when its still dark out, Presson said. The vans pull into the trails parking lot at 6:34 a.m., and the runners trudge out to begin a five-minute warm-up jog, followed by a series of stretches. Head coach Mark VanAlstyne announces the workout: a 10-mile progression run. Each mile is supposed to be faster than the last. How far should me and (junior) Patrick (Schellberg) go? Full thing? Presson, who has been dealing with a tender right ankle, asks his coach. I would shoot for nine. Nice. Nice casual progression run. Presson joins the circle of runners at the trail head, and they clip off a 5:48 mile before its 7 a.m.

Its never a good sign when you have to start running when its still dark out.
Isaac Presson,
UNC cross country runner

The Bell Tower tolls three times, but few are awake to hear it, save a select crew of athletes and early-risers. Its 5:47 a.m. on Sept. 18. The sky is a purplish gray, and a soft wind whips against the flags surrounding North Carolinas Irwin Belk Track. The only respite from the darkness comes from the field lights towering above the track, and even that only illuminates patches of rubber and grass. Isaac Presson, a 6-foot-3, 155-pound junior on the North Carolina cross country team, walks up to the second floor of Eddie Smith Field House and into the mens locker room, where freshman Richard Miller asks him if he had caught the score to the Broncos-Falcons game the night before. Presson had not. He had gone to bed at 10:30 p.m. The game was far from over. Presson changes into a gray running shirt, tucks it into a pair of dark blue athletic shorts and exits. He joins his teammates on the bottom floor, and they walk to the parking lot outside the field house. They pile into two 18-passenger vans at 6:11 a.m. and drive to the American Tobacco Trail in Wake County. The routine seems ruthless waking up before sunrise to run 10 to 12 miles but for Presson and his teammates, its just another Tuesday. Another day in the life

runners have returned from the workout. The watch is black and simple, and it reads 51:17 for the ninemiler. He ran the first five in 29:12, a pace of about 5:50 per mile, and the last four in 22:05, a pace of 5:31. Nice casual progression run. Some runners slam down a Gatorade protein shake, attempting to replace the calories burned by running 10 miles in less than 60 minutes, and then everyone climbs back into the vans.

Fueling the furnace

They arrive back on campus at 8:49 a.m., and Presson, an economics major, attends Business Analytics at 9:30 a.m. and Introduction to Entrepreneurship at 12:30 p.m. He then meets teammates Jack Driggs and Dan Mykityshyn at Suttons Drug Store for lunch at 2:15 p.m. Driggs and Mykityshyn already have a table and are sipping on cherry Cokes. Apparently Presson had told them to meet at 2 p.m. Driggs is half-mad and says hes on a schedule. No time to waste. Presson, a laid-back, unassuming 20 year old with unmistakable wit I.P.: Ladies love me. Guys want to be me. Jack

Numbers. Theyre what separate good runners from great ones, and theyre what can drive them insane. Theyre what earned Presson, a state champion in the indoor mile at Asheville High, scholarship offers from UNC and N.C. State and interest from Columbia, Virginia and Florida State.

The Daily Tar Heel

Ebron emerges as a weapon for UNC

By Michael Lananna
Senior Writer

North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron is well aware of the perception that accompanies his position. And, quite frankly, he thinks its outdated. A lot of people think tight ends are usually the man on the ground or the sixth man on the line of scrimmage, Ebron said. But were a lot more versatile than people think, and were a lot stronger and a lot faster than people mistake us for at least, I am. As confident as that sounds, for the most part, the sophomore has backed it up with his play. As the Tar Heels (2-2, 0-1 ACC) head into Saturdays

home matchup with Idaho (0-4), Ebron ranks second on the team in receptions and receiving yards with 14 and 210, respectively. Those numbers already surpass the totals Ebron put together all of last season, and theyre likely to go up even more against an Idaho team that ranks 106th in the nation in passing defense. With UNCs wide receiving core a bit thin to start the season, Ebron has emerged as a frequent target for quarterback Bryn Renner and the Tar Heel offense. They really know how to utilize their weapons like me, Erik Highsmith and (Sean) Tapley, Ebron said. They really know how to scheme up and put the ball where it needs to be. And

we just execute it. So thats what really got me where I am now, producing a lot more stats than I did last year. A lot of that has to do with sheer talent as well. At 6-foot-4 and 235 pounds, Ebron is near the lower end of the tight-end size spectrum. But, perhaps because of that size, hes near the high end in terms of athleticism. Hes the most versatile tight end Ive ever seen, Renner said. He could probably start at X receiver if we wanted him to. Hes got that

size and that athletic ability. He can make all the plays And he can catch the ball any time that he wants. Ebron said he actually used to play at the X wide receiver slot in high school before moving to tight end his junior year. And while he said he would play at receiver again if the coaching staff asked him to, theres little chance UNC would move him from a position that appears to fit him perfectly. He is definitely what you look for if youre going to draw a blueprint of what we

want a tight end to be, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Blake Anderson said. Thats what you want tight ends to look like, and fortunately hes a sophomore, and weve got him for a while. But, as an underclassman, Ebron is still prone to making rookie mistakes. In Ebrons case, that has come in the form of false starts. Hes racked up four false start penalties in the last two games, but Renner just chalked that up to Ebrons excitable personality. The tight end was unde-

niably enthusiastic as he talked about his role on the team and his position after Tuesdays practice. Maybe he does have the athletic ability to play at wide receiver, but theres a little doubt that he has embraced his role as a tight end stereotypes and all. You know, I like people who underestimate us, Ebron said. Because when we come out and we shock them, then they have no answer. Contact the desk editor at


The DTH Sports staff and one celebrity guest compete to pick the winners of the biggest ACC and national college football games each week.
After three weeks of picking, it looks like some of the other pickers are finally figuring out some of Sports Editor Brandon Morees secrets to near-perfect picking. No surprise, Moree went 7-1 for the third week, but he might not be alone at the top for long. Assistant Editors Brooke Pryor, Robbie Harms and Henry Gargan all went 7-1 along with Moree last week. If not for Miamis overtime upset of Georgia Tech, all four would have finished the week with perfect records. Pryor is surging in the standings after entering last week tied for the worst overall record and starting the picking season with a 4-4 record. Gargan could be challenging for a top

Senior writer and bloginator supreme Michael Lananna was last in picks this week, finishing 5-3. Last week, Lananna finished 4-4, and he did little to redeem himself this week.

(Driggs) cant beat me, is his go-to self-describer laughs it off and sits down. The waitress comes to the table, and Presson orders a cheeseburger with chips on the side. Driggs and Mykityshyn both order a double cheeseburger and fries. The lunch conversation floats from running to recruits to girls to replacing Suttons framed basketball jerseys with speed suits. When the food comes, Presson wastes no time. The burger is gone in less than five minutes, and he wipes his mouth.

A runners sanctuary

Presson leaves Suttons at 2:45 p.m. and arrives at Stallings-Evans Sports Medicine Center at 3:07 p.m. He talks with a trainer and then begins a series of footstrengthening and injuryprevention exercises. 0/12 4:01 PMHe spots Sami Jorgensen, Page 5 a sophomore on the womens team, doing similar stretches.

Howre the shins today, Sami? he asks. Theyre good, its just the breathing she says, explaining her most recent corporal difficulty. A runners body, like any athletes, is a temple, a hallowed mix of muscle and bone, and they must treat it accordingly. Im pretty fragile, Presson says. Definitely the biggest thing holding me back in my running career is injuries. After an ice bath, he leaves the training room at 4:07 p.m. and walks to the student athlete academic center inside the Loudermilk Center for Excellence. (A) good thing about this place is that its got the best bathrooms, Presson says of the academic center, where he spends 40 minutes studying International Economics before walking to the weight room at 4:56 p.m. The team knocks out a 45-minute weight-training session, and Gatorade protein shakes are handed out to all. They would replace a meal for most people, Presson says on the walk back to his house

Theres times well go a while without seeing him because hes always training.

for dinner.

Different perspective
There are sodas and salty snacks strewn across the coffee table of Pressons off-campus house, and a flat-screen T.V. dominates the main room. Pressons room is messy, large and filled with posters. Junior John Ruhl III, one of Pressons housemates, says hes grown accustomed to living with a runner. I hear him wake up a lot early in the morning, says Ruhl. (And) theres times well go a while without seeing him because hes always training. The housemates all find dinner Presson prepares a burrito filled with generous amounts grilled chicken, rice, cheese, chopped lettuce and salsa and gather on the couch to watch reruns of The Office.

Isaac is probably the best cook in the house, Ruhl says. Nate (Koutlas, another housemate) and the other two are God awful. Before everyone has settled in, Presson is halfway done with the burrito. In less than 10 minutes hes back in the kitchen making another one.

Back to sleep
Presson passes the rest of the night studying, and at 10:30 p.m., hes back where he began the day 17 hours earlier: his bed. He sets his alarm and goes to sleep, ready to do it all again tomorrow. The Bell Tower tolls twice, a subtle, powerful reminder for Presson and all college runners that time is unchanging. Contact the desk editor at

The North Carolina mens soccer team will look for its first road win of the season against Duke (3-4-1, 1-11) today, but it will do so without its second-leading goal scorer, junior forward Andy Craven. No. 6 UNC (6-1-1, 2-0-1) recorded its third straight shutout in Tuesdays 1-0 win against Wofford, playing with only 10 men for most of the game after Craven was sent off with a red card in the 16th minute. NCAA rules require that Craven sits out Fridays game, so the Tar Heels will need to find a replacement at center forward. Andy is definitely a big loss, but that happens all the time, senior forward Martin Murphy said. So were just going to have to prepare like we usually would. Sophomore midfielder Mikey Lopez said it will be tough for UNCs attack to play without Cravens skill set. He definitely brings a good sense of playing the ball behind the defense, Lopez said. He makes good runs behind them. Itll be tough for someone else to replicate that. UNC, which has struggled to generate offense at times this season, will be challenged by Duke goalkeeper James Belshaw, who has allowed just 0.85 goals per game and has earned back-to-back ACC Player of the Week honors. But Lopez said the Tar Heels are unfazed by Belshaws accolades. Ive read about him, but Ive also seen the teams that theyve played and the scores that theyve gotten, Lopez

said. I dont think any of our players are too concerned about him being ACC Player of the Week for two times consecutively. Its just another goalkeeper that we have to beat. If the offense does struggle, the team can likely count on its defense to pick up the slack as it has done throughout the season. UNC has allowed just 0.25 goals per game, and those numbers rank UNC third in the NCAA and first in the conference. Head coach Carlos Somoano said his entire team deserves the credit for the Tar Heels staunch defensive effort, not just the back four defenders. The six in front of the back four have been outstanding in terms of pressing and closing down players, he said. When you have a team thats doing this well defensively, its not a back four. Its not a goalkeeper. Its a unit of 11 thats really coordinating themselves well. Somoano said Tuesdays effort without Craven was a positive sign for the Tar Heels as the season progresses. To be able to do that a man down shows something, Somoano said. Those are the kind of things you look for to see if your team really has the juice to do some damage during the season.

Students encouraged to register their bikes with DPS

By Kristen Skill and Lauren Gil
Staff Writers

The Department of Public Safety is tightening bike policy and encouraging students to abide by a mandatory rule to register their bikes. While permits are required, only 1,000 to 2,000 of the bikes on campus are registered, said Randy Young, DPS spokesman. In an effort to increase registration, students who

register their bikes receive a 50 percent discount on bike locks at UNC Student Stores. And as a result, lock sales have nearly doubled, causing a temporary sellout until Monday, said John Gorsuch, director of Student Stores. This year in particular I would say its been kind of an above average year, he said. (DPS) has been better at getting the word out, Gorsuch said. Students have been more responsive.

Students can register for free, either in-person at the department or on its website, Young said. He added that registered bikes are more likely to be returned if stolen because DPS is able to track them. Bikes that are stolen or involved in crime are usually not registered, he said. Young said he recalls a recent case where a girl recognized her stolen bike being ridden by another person

and it was returned by DPS because it was registered. Its deterrent to crime, Young said. When crime occurs, we can identify whats lost. Registered bikes are marked by an official sticker located on the bicycle frame. But Young said that unregistered bikes are not at risk of being impounded, despite DPSs increased effort to impound bikes not parked at designated racks.

Bike registration is not connected with bike parking they are separate issues, Young said. Students tend to park their bikes illegally because certain bike racks are in higher demand than others, and it can be hard to find a free spot, Young said. We recommend just a minute or two to find parking. Young said he encourages students to contact DPS if

they have concerns regarding bike rack congestion. Senior Laura Hamrick said she has never felt a need to register her bike, but she will now likely register it to prevent theft. Ive heard about bike registration vaguely, but Ive never really thought about it it seems like a good idea, though, Hamrick said. Contact the desk editor at

soon. There has been a lot of precedent about these forums from searches in the past, he said. The search committee will also have a website to inform the public about their progress. The website,, is currently under construction. Don Curtis, a member of the Board of Trustees and the search committee, said he is delighted to help find the new chancellor. the University of Georgia dropped a game with the University of Louisville. The Cardinals signed a home-andhome contract and replaced Tennessee. But the last-minute uncertainty Tennessee unleashed meant UNC had less time to fill out its 2012 schedule. The contract with Idaho was drawn up in October. I want someone who can lead Carolina into all of the challenges that are involved with running a major school. Curtis said the University has been moving past the recent scandals, and hes looking forward to the future. Weve had some problems, but we are rectifying them, and making sure (they) never happen again. Thorps decision to step down followed years riddled with academic, athletic and his schools football players like the opportunity to play against teams with big names and bigger stadiums. Wills said Elon calculates its athletic budget in part from money it receives from football games like the one it played against UNC, although he declined to say how much. One-and-done games can be an important income stream for smaller sports programs. In 2010-11, Department of Education data show Elons football program brought in 22.7 percent of its $17.2 million in athletic revenue. In the same year, Idahos football team was responsible for a whopping 45.7 percent of the $16.8 million its athletic department brought in. Its just part of being a lower-level (NCAA) Division 1 school, Wills said. administrative scandals. In the week following the announcement, students, faculty, staff and the Board of Trustees formally asked Thorp to reconsider. Hyde said searching for Thorps successor is the most influential way a trustee serves the University. Its the most important responsibility we have, and we take it very seriously.

games have been at home each year, and senior associate director of athletics Larry Gallo said they net $1.5 million to $1.7 million each. Per Atlantic Coast Conference rules, UNC and other members share media revenue and keep their respective game-day receipts. To attract opponents who dont eat from the ACC trough, the University pays non-conference visitors. One way to do this is via alternating home-game series, like UNC frequently organizes with East Carolina University. In these cases, both schools get compensated for losing home-game revenue in one year, but they dont profit. Then there are the oneand-done games. These are often against smaller teams who collect larger checks for games they will likely lose. Elon University and Idaho fall into this category. UNC will pay Elon $350,000 for its 62-0 loss on Sept. 1. The University will pay Idaho $800,000 double its normal high end of $400,000. Profit aside, one-and-done games let UNC schedule an extra home game the next season without worrying about having to play a contractually obligated away game.

Banking on football
Scheduling seven home games is important for the athletic department. Besides giving fans more opportunities to see the Heels at Kenan, it squeezes more money from the athletic departments biggest money-maker. Data provided to the Department of Education in 2010-11 show that the basketball program brought in $19.7 million. The football team brought in $26.4 million more than one-third of the athletic departments $71.4 million take that year. Its big time revenue that we bank on, Gallo said. The football team could operate without the money, but other sports depend on it. The fewer home games the football team plays, the harder things become for others.

From the stands

Fans at the East Carolina game had mixed views of this years non-conference schedule. Bill Browning, whos been a Rams Club member for 25 years, enjoys the friendlier feel of games against smaller opponents. But he wasnt sure if hed make the trip from Charlotte for the Idaho game. Thats a waste of my time and money, he said. Paola Cardona, a freshman with a giant L painted on her torso, was less discerning. Its just fun to be home, no matter who we play, she said. As long as were not losing, money doesnt matter. Contact the desk editor at

Cost of doing business

The importance of football revenue to bigger athletic departments like UNCs is reflected in the difference between payments for football and basketball non-conference home games. This year, the largest of the six basketball payouts are $100,000 each for ECU and the University of Alabama at Birmingham. By comparison, the smallest football payment is ECUs $250,000. Smaller schools also benefit from one-and-done games. Theyre looking for an opportunity to showcase their program and to help their budget, former UNC Athletic Director Dick Baddour said. Kyle Wills, Elons athletic business director, said

A domino effect
The story behind the UNCIdaho game began in 2005. That year, the University of Tennessee and UNC agreed to play each other in 2011 and 2012. Before those games transpired, however, the Volunteers fired their head coach, hired a new one and cancelled the series in 2011. The University got $750,000 per the contracts buyout clause, and UNCs schedules for both years were thrown in disarray. When somebody drops someone, they think it just involves one team, Gallo said. It can be a domino effect. UNC lucked out when

the pack. Thats kind of a sign of the times now and Oregon kind of started all that, Morelli said. Fellow Atlantic Coast Conference teams Maryland, Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech have also joined in. The football equipment assistant managers keep track of these sorts of trends, and they are ultimately responsible for the daily organization of UNC football gear. Freeman said they do up to 18 loads of laundry a day between their two 100-pound and 85-pound washers. When all this stuff comes in, we get close to 1,000 pairs of shoes each year, hundreds and hundreds of Nike boxers, shorts, dry fits, girdles, suits, cold weather gear, Freeman said. Anything you see players or coaches wearing, we get. In addition, equipment staff and student managers are responsible for making sure each of the nine stickers including the ACC stickers, American flags and player numbers are placed on all 120 helmets before the games every week. Were probably putting in 80 hours a week, Freeman said. Its a lot, but everybody in the (Kenan Center) does coaches are putting in that

They do what they have to do, and they do a good job of it.
Jheranie Boyd,
UnC senior wide receiver

and then some, probably close to 100 hours a week. Freeman said the team relies on equipment staff to organize the countless parts of each players uniform that are required for all home and away games. Everything has to be clean and crisp, he said. We dont want players to worry about anything except coming into the locker room and putting on the uniform thats all they have to worry about. And players say this effort does not go unappreciated. Jheranie Boyd, a senior wide receiver, said equipment staff help with the players needs. A lot of guys respect them, he said. They do what they have to do, and they do a good job of it. Renner said equipment managers and trainers go above and beyond to help at all times. It goes without saying theyre the hardest working people in this building, he said. I think they go underappreciated.

Morelli said most people dont realize how much work goes on behind the scenes to keep a Division I football program running on the equipment side. Its something you really got to enjoy to do. Its not something youre going to get rich doing, and it requires a lot of hours and is a lot of work, he said. Its kind of like coaching but a little different. Contact the desk editor at

Smoking lessons from Don Draper


Column on Jesus wife was very inaccurate
TO THE EDITOR: In response to Memet Walkers rants about the recently discovered Gospel of Jesus Wife. So yes, a 4th-century Coptic manuscript has recently come to the attention of Biblical scholars. So should we all change our opinions about Jesus and conclude that he had a wife? The answer is a resounding no! At best, the manuscript found is just another fragment of a Gnostic text (By the way, its the size of your average smartphone). The fragment sheds no light about the historical Jesus. Why? Because it does not pass historical criteria. No other existing manuscripts independently attest that Jesus had a wife! So, while Walkers anecdote about Jesus and Mary is amusing, in actuality, he has no basis for the story. Moreover, and probably the most striking thing about the manuscript, is most scholars believe its a forgery. Stephen Emmel, a professor at Muenster (the hub of Biblical scholarship), and the founder of the Gospel of Judas, believes that the gospel is a forgery. Even one of our own professors, Zlatko Plese, believes the manuscript is a forgery. As for Walkers conclusion about the Bible being as unreliable as Wikipedia, again, he has no basis for this assumption. Over 5,500 manuscripts of the New Testament exist; moreover, most of the beloved stories in the New Testament, including the resurrection of Jesus, are independently attested, which means multiple independent 1st-century sources claim the event happened.

moking is cool, or at least thats what Mad Men has taught me. Science, though, has taught me that its bad. The recent uproar over a proposed expansion of the countys smoking ban got me thinking what would Don Draper think? Wouldnt he be sad? At what point would he justify government intervention? There is, undoubtedly, a cost associated with inhaling secondhand smoke. I hate smoke. It makes breathing difficult, it leaves a bad smell on my clothes and it can irritate my eyes. Im sensitive, OK? Because of these costs, I am less likely to go to a restaurant or pub that permits smoking inside. In reality, I might be more willing to visit a place that allows smoking if it offers cheaper drinks, better food or a hip clientele (Don Draper). Or I might require higher pay to work in a smoky environment. Others might actually prefer a place where they can smoke among friends. The market would be able to sort this out. And sometimes I even lay in bed imagining a world where smokers whip out their wallets to compensate those around them for secondhand smoke. Though this is just a pipe-dream, it is the ultimate solution. Ultimately, its best to let businesses decide for themselves what policy will best suit their patrons. It might be good for some businesses, like a coffee house, to ban smoking, but bad for others, like a bowling alley or a pub. The new push into public spaces does not bother me as much as the preexisting ordinance that bans smoking on some private property. After all, the protection of private property is one of the hallmarks of a free society. How free are you, really, if society can tell you how to behave on your land, in your restaurant, or in your home? I am concerned, like many, with the harmful effects of secondhand smoke. But banning smoking on public property, while at least a little more justified than in private, is unlikely to solve the problem. Long-term damage comes from sustained exposure to secondhand smoke. Pushing smokers into cramped quarters like cars, houses and work spaces is actually more likely to cause damage than a short stroll down the street would. Maybe the solution is to make tobacco illegal altogether thats sure to work! A distinction needs to be made between a public road or sidewalk and a private pub or restaurant. Private businesses are enclosed areas where an owner can respond more directly to his or her customers and accommodate their wishes without affecting the public in the same way that behavior on public land does. Requirements for clearly posted smoking policies outside establishments around town would be preferable to sweeping bans. Maybe something like a cigarette with a red circle and a line through it. As we consider smoking policy, we should remember that public and private property should be treated differently.

Honoring the Code

he department of exercise and sport science has become the first department at UNC to require students to complete an informational online assessment about the Honor Code. In light of the recent academic scandals, this should be a Universitywide program to ensure that students do not unwittingly violate the Honor Code. While the assessment is also mandatory for incoming freshmen in all departments, students who enrolled before this year do not have to take


The Honor Code assessment should be mandatory.

the assessment. All departments should also make upperclassmen complete the assessment as part of their major requirements. The Honor Code is the academic law of the University. Violating it can have dire consequences, including suspension and expulsion. But many students dont know what the Honor Code requires them to do to avoid these consequences. There are a lot of gray areas where what is technically cheating might not be clear. Obviously, this assessment wont stop those who cheat intentionally. But it might keep some students from unintentionally sinking their col-

lege careers. Students in the department of exercise and sport science have expressed that for this process to be fair, the module should be a standard across all departments. If this online module for the Honor Code were to be mandatory across the University, there must be statutes implemented so every student would be required to complete it. Due to problems that the University has faced during the past year, theres good reason to implement this plan. Besides being good policy, the plan would also improve the Universitys reputation demonstrate its commitment to uphold the Honor Code.

Trainings for Greeks

he Greek community has faced scrutiny lately, particularly due to the Universitys fraternity system investigating nine reports of hazing among chapters. The University should require Greek leaders particularly executive council members to participate in campus trainings like One Act, Safe Zone and HAVEN. These campus programs are available to all students, but the University should reorganize them, tailoring them to students that participate in Greek life.


Require Greek leaders to receive campus trainings.

Greek leaders would be responsible for debriefing their chapters about what they learned. This would prove to be beneficial to everyone even encouraging other members to participate and seek their own certification. While Greek leaders might be skeptical about being required to go through campus programs like these, they should see it as an opportunity rather than a burden. Greek organizations do a lot of great things for the University, the community and their philanthropic causes, but many times these accomplishments are overshadowed by Animal House-type stereotypes of partying. These Greek lead-

ers taking advantage of campus resources to gain valuable knowledge would be a step in the right direction for a community that rarely gets a nod of approval. The proposed $25 annual Greek fee intends to provide enough money to the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life so that all Greek members could go through these trainings. While this would also be good, if the fee is not passed, requiring the officers to receive the training would be a good alternative with lower costs. If Greek leaders were to all receive these certifications, it could serve as a model for other campus leaders to follow.

Promoting the arts

ne of the purposes of a university is to promote arts and culture. Carolina Performing Arts does just that. As ticket sales are showing for the 2012-13 season, CPA is carrying out this role particularly well by lining up performances of well-known works that people actually want to see. CPA should continue this practice in future seasons for the successful promotion of arts at UNC. The more prominent and well-known a performance is, the better the ticket sales are, because people like to


CPA should continue featuring more well-known works.

hear and see something thats at least somewhat familiar to them. People dont want to see or hear performances of works that they have never heard of doing so is a gamble that could leave them with less money and more disappointment. To attract audiences and submerse them in arts and culture, an organization must have a staple performance that people know or can relate to themselves. CPA has shown its understanding of this concept and should be lauded for it. Last season, CPA held two well-received performances of works by Beethoven. This year, the inclusion of Russian composer Igor Stravinskys

The Rite of Spring and other well-known pieces in their season line-up has allowed CPA to bring in some of its highest revenues in recent years. Stravinsky, considered to be among the greatest composers of the 20th century, still commands a tremendously large following of fans. CPA did well showcasing one of his most acclaimed works, The Rite of Spring. Introductions to great pieces can encourage audiences to further develop their artistic interests. It takes big pictures and big performances to cause people to look deeper into works and allow people to cultivate their own culture. In this sense, CPA is leading the way.
