Nevada, Fresno reach deal with WAC

By Lukas Eggen
The Western Athletic Conference, Nevada and Fresno State reached an agreement Thursday, settling the conference change dispute between the three parties. Both schools will remain in the conference in all sports until June 30, 2012, and will pay $900,000 to the WAC. The resolution ends a period of uncertainty for the Wolf Pack regarding when the school would leave the conference and how much it would have to pay. After announcing its decision on Aug. 18, both university president Milton Glick and Athletics Director Cary Groth said Nevada wanted to leave the WAC in 2011. The WAC said Nevada and Fresno State had to stay in the conference until 2012 and were in violation of the WAC Resolution an agreement that said schools must pay $5 million to leave within ve years of their signings. The WAC led a lawsuit against Nevada, Fresno State and the Mountain West Conference on Sept. 9. The two sides hired a mediator in October to settle the matter. Although Glick said he felt Nevada would win in a lawsuit, the two sides settled on $900,000 as a business decision because they didnt know how much legal costs would be. With an agreement nally reached, Groth said it allows both sides to nally start making denite plans for the future. The resolution is just what we need, Groth said. We needed to be able to move forward and get ready for another good year in the WAC. Then we can make the transition into the Mountain West Conference. The $900,000 will be paid over a ve-year period beginning Aug. 1, 2011. Payments of $180,000 will be made each year until Aug. 1, 2015. The money will be paid by the athletic department and will not affect students nancially. The

N Nevada d and d Fresno F State St t agreed to leave the Western Athletic Conference after the 2011-12 school year. Nevada will have to pay $900,000 which will be split into ve equal installments beginning Aug. 1,2011.
rst payment will be taken from Nevadas share of the WACs revenue distribution. The second payment will come from external dollars raised by revenue, development and donations.


University of Nevada, Reno President Milton Glick announced Aug. 18 that the Wolf Pack would leave the Western Athletic Conference in 2011.



Voting not on students to do list

Midterm elections fail to interest young voters
By Jay Balagna and Don Weinland
Students can get rides to the polls on a giant tricycle. They can get free stickers and baked treats if they pledge to cast their ballots. They can even get a feeling of participation in American democracy when their elders ask if their voice was heard. But, despite the perks, most young students probably wont vote in this election. Their reasons are vast, whether its making a conscious choice in protest, being too busy to stay informed or simply not having ample reason to care. Whatever their reasons, though, the numbers are impossible to ignore. According to statistics from the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement, 25.5 percent of United States citizens ages 18-29 voted in the last midterm election in 2006. Older citizens voted at a rate more than double that number. Comparing the statistics with more glamorous presidential elections shows little correlation between peaks and valleys and the relatively stagnant off-year numbers, dulling the hopes of political organizers that youthful zeal may remain from the 2008 election. Its just not important in their lives, said William Eubank, a political science professor at the University of Nevada, Reno. Young people just arent connected, and theres no reason they should be. In general, young people simply nd that most election issues dont matter to them, Eubank said. As people get older, they acquire the things in life meaningful to them husbands, wives, houses, children and things like that, he said. When you have those things, you care more about taxes, healthcare and other issues. For some students, not voting is a conscious choice. Rational ignorance, a term used by political scientists for those who snub political happenings because of the disparity between the cost of time and the benets, is often high among young citizens. Given that the costs of voting far exceed its benets,

Court drops lawsuit

By Jay Balagna
A lawsuit naming the states higher education system and 20 people employed in it, including many at the University of Nevada, Reno, was dismissed after multiple appeals and five years. The lawsuit, which consisted of the rst two of 15 complaints former professor Hussein S. Hussein led against the university, was dismissed Hussein S. for lack of eviHussein dence. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an order from a lower court that Hussein pay legal fees for the defendants totaling more than $1.2 million. Among the defendants were former UNR president John Lilley, former provost John Frederick and various department heads under whom Hussein worked. Hussein, who was red in 2008, sued the Nevada System of Higher Education for what he claimed was discriminatory treatment from UNR administrators in performance reviews

Local students, parties disparage ad

By Don Weinland
Hispanic students, local Democrats and Republicans shunned a recent Spanish TV ad telling Latinos not to vote. The ad told Hispanic viewers to refrain from voting in the midterm election because the national and state government has failed to make good on promises to Hispanic constituents. Democratic leaders must pay for their broken promises and betrayals, the ad stated. Dont vote this November. This is the only way to send them a clear message. Latinos for Reform, a Republican-backed group, produced the ad that has become a ashpoint for political advertising. Latinos for Reform is a political action committee headed by Robert Deposada, a former consultant for former President George W. Bush, according to the campaign watchdog Source Watch. The ad caught University of Nevada, Reno students by surprise. Nikki Grey, whose mother is of Mexican descent, said the ad sent a negative message to Hispanic voters. Americans, regardless of their heritage, should exercise their right to choose their

Energy efciency rated low

The University of Nevada, Reno lost half a letter grade Wednesday in a green report card incorporating 322 schools in the United States and Canada. However, the report cards data collecting process has been highly argued as ineffective. The College Sustainability Report Card, issued by the Sustainability Endowment Institute, gave UNRs 2011 green initiatives a B, down from a B+ in 2010. The school received a C in 2009. UNRs food and recycling score, as well as its endowment transparency score, fell by one letter grade. The universitys administration, transportation and investment priorities maintained As for progress in sustainability. John Sagebiel, UNRs

Studies show interest in voting among university students to be low. University professors say this lack of attention on local and national politics results in less representation for youth in Washington.

Locals sport staches for mens health

By Coree J. Hogan
Moustached men and women will show their support for mens health with facial hair this November. The City of Remo, an organization for mens health awareness, calls the month-long activity Movember. Participants will grow moustaches to promote early prostate and testicular cancer detection. Nico Aguilera, co-founder of the City of Remo, said Movember addresses low awareness and willingness in men to get routine health checks. Its usually because of pride or the whole macho thing, but with prostate cancer early detection is key, he said. Thats why we are trying to spread awareness. When people think of November or a moustache, I want them to think, have I checked my prostate? Started in 2003 by two Australians raising money for mens health, Movember has become an international philanthropic foundation where men and women grow moustaches to show their support, Aguilera said. Aguilera and another local founded the City of Remo in 2008 and raised about $11,000 in 2009. The City of Remo is working with the University of Nevada, Renos Ad Club to create promotional material. UNR students are a target demographic for Movember because the 18-35 age group is the most susceptible to testicular cancer, Aguilera said. There will be a public service announcement during halftime at a Wolf Pack basketball game Saturday. City of Remo also met with Greek life organizers to promote the month, Aguilera said. Donald Pickering, spokesperson for the City of Remo, is

a survivor of testicular cancer. Pickering was diagnosed with testicular cancer four years ago and became the ofcial spokesperson last year. The City of Remo has already raised about $3,000 for developments in prostate and testicular cancer treatment, he said. Openness and awareness of cancer risks can save lives, Pickering said. The two things that I stress are the importance of early detection and self-examination, he said. Younger men are embarrassed about the subject. If they have an issue they usually dont want to talk about it. Events are planned throughout November, Aguilera said. Soa Paxton, community outreach for the City of Remo, said they want Movember to catch on like other cancer awareness campaigns. We want the moustache in Reno to be the equivalent of the pink ribbon for breast cancer, she said.

Funds for needy to fuse

By Don Weinland
Student associations and services at the University of Nevada, Reno are seeking to centralize resources for students who fall on hard nancial times. Informal programs headed by the Graduate Student Association and Food Services will look to join with the Associated Students of the University of Nevada to cultivate an accountable and well-publicized program. The ASUN senate ended the Student Aide for Emergencies (SAFE) program Oct. 20, moving the $5,000 fund for students in need to the ASUN emergency fund. The SAFE program was created in 2009 but went unused after being placed in the wrong fund. The emergency fund, created by ASUN in 2007, distributes a maximum of $300 to 10 to 15 students per year, Gerald Marczynski, associate vice president of Student Services, said. About $6,000 have been spent during the programs three years. The fund is intended for students in temporary dire straits, he said. Students with long-term difculty paying tuition and rent are advised to take out loans. The students who are given money basically have no money, no food, Marczynski said. We dont want to give them money and then next month run into the same problem Most of these students have just been reluctant to take out loans and we often can connect them with someone in the nancial aid ofce.

Grad studies binge

By Jay Balagna and Don Weinland
Amid a plague of disorders hitting college students in America, a new study on campus is seeking participants to learn the effects of stress on eating habits. Annie Haynos, the lead researcher on the project at the University of Nevada, Reno, said eating disorders which are among the most common psychological problems in the United States are particularly prevalent with college students. College is a time when many people develop lifelong habits, including eating habits, said Haynos, a doctoral student in clinical psychology. In addition to problems such as anorexia, rates of binge eating are especially high among young people and may be perpetuated by high stress rates in students, she said. Traditionally, binge eating was viewed as the result of bad habits developed from poorly managed eating, but research has shown that may not be entirely true. More and more, people have started looking at stress and what role that plays, Haynos said. Binge eating is manageable if the cause of the stress is found and dealt with, she said. We see so many people coming into the counseling center dealing with some kind of stress, said Haynos, who also works as a counselor at UNR. College students have a lot of stress, not just academic stress. Theyre navigating relationships, interacting with parents and plenty of others. Many students, especially men, dont get treatment for eating disorders because of the

Emergency funds are available 10 days after application. Students looking for an immediate meal will nd help from the GSA and Food Services. Since the mid-1980s, GSA has operated a food pantry available to graduate and undergradute students. The donation-based resource is small, providing about 20 students per semester with canned goods, Matt Smith, president of the Graduate Student Association, said. Its one of those pretty lowusage programs, he said. But the students who use it are the ones who really, really need it. The informal resource for hungry students has never been highly publicized and requires little paperwork, Smith said. Students come and we literally give them a key so they can come and get what they need, he said. Partnering with ASUN would give the GSA access to more publicity, Smith said. Russ Myers, director of Food Services, said the creation of a centralized program is essential to get more donations. We have the ability to get some of our vendors to donate product, but they want a formal system to get tax credits, he said. Food Services gives food credits to students who cant wait 10 days for assistance. GSA and Food Services are

If (vendors) give us $1,000 in hot dogs, we can then donate $1,000 to the food closet, or a $1,000 in food swipes, he said. Qualication for emergency funds or food credits are based on the conversation students have with faculty, Marczynski said. Students who use the programs are usually referred to Marczynski by other faculty. Tracking student use is essential to making the program efcient, Myers said. A centralized program would make tracking students who use different services easier. The potential for abuse is low, Smith said. Coming to the school for food is not something most students are willing to do. Its humbling to come and have to ask for food, Smith said.

stigma surrounding the problem, Rebecca Chaliman, a psychologist at UNRs Counseling Center, said. About 25 percent of people diagnosed with binge eating are men. But it may be higher in men because its not as acceptable for men to struggle with this problem, she said. Our body image-focused society contributes to a lack of self-acceptance and an increase in eating disorders, Chaliman said. Studies show 80 percent of women are not content with their bodies, and 90 percent of women try to change their appearance through dieting, she said. If eating habits begin to affect grades, students should seek help, Chaliman said. There are a lot of warning signs but its when it really begins to impact their lives that they need help, she said. If they nd they cant concentrate because they are thinking about food, its a problem.

Student held hostage in fraternity house

A former Nevada student was charged with four felony counts Wednesday after barricading himself in the Lambda Chi fraternity house with a hostage and a .357 caliber magnum. The subject had a weapon

and was making suicidal statements, Lt. Todd Renwick of the University of Nevada Police Department said. Eric Youngren, 22, a former Lambda Chi pledge, was charged with second-degree kidnapping with a deadly weapon, assault with a deadly weapon, and domestic battery with a deadly weapon, Kristina Williams said, a support specialist for the Washoe County Sheriffs Department. Nobody was injured, Renwick said.

The situation lasted for about two-and-a-half hours. Police said that they received a call regarding a domestic dispute a little after 4 p.m. from the Lambda Chi fraternity house. They found Youngren holding his ex-girlfriend, Nevada sophomore Shannon Boise, at gun point following a heated argument. Police successfully removed Boise from the Lambda Chi house shortly after arrival. Boise said she did not press charges against Youngren.

Hes OK, she said shortly after Youngren was removed passively from the fraternity. He was never going to harm me. Police said that after Boises removal, Youngren began making demands to see his mother, Boise and various members of the fraternity. He was negotiating with us through the windows, Renwick said. Police soon evacuated houses in the surrounding neighborhood, including frat-

nernity members from both Lambda Chi and Tau Kappa Epsilon. At some point during the situation, Youngren fired one round from his weapon at the floor. At press time, it was unclear if this was before or after police removed Boise from the fraternity house. Youngren surrendered to police at around 6:30 p.m.

Campus Conference to bring diverse students together Events

By Riley Snyder
The Associated Students of the University of Nevadas Unity Commission will host a diversity conference Friday its rst in nine years. Organizers will hold the Learning Diversity: Education in a World of Difference in the William J. Raggio Building and Edmund J. Cain Hall, said Unity Commissioner Manpreet Kaur. After a main presentation by motivational speaker Elaine Penn in Cain Hall at 9 a.m., students will be able to attend six different workshops until 5 p.m. Lunch and a free T-shirt will be provided for students who register for the event in advance on the ASUN website. About 100 people are expected to attend the event, but so far only 30 to 35 registration forms have been lled in, said Shirley Diaz, director of the Unity Commission. Even though the majority of students who registered for the conference are minorities, there is still value for Caucasians to attend the event, Diaz said. Registration is required for students who wish to attend the event, but it is mainly for determining T-shirt size and an accurate attendance count. The event will run for most of the day. Students will be allowed to leave at any time to attend classes, Kaur said. Part of the value of the diversity conference is its ability to connect student organizations, Kaur said. The main goal is to bring everyone together and to raise awareness of diversity on campus, she said. The event should bring about a larger awareness of diversity on campus, Diaz said. I hope this opens a dialogue on why the campus should prioritize diversity, she said. The event cost about $4,000, Diaz said. Most of the expense comes from the opening speaker, Elaine Penn, who will also host a workshop. We wanted to nd a national speaker to give the conference a professional tone, Diaz said. Penns speech will deal with the importance of recognizing and accepting diversity all of which are goals of the Unity Commission, Kaur said. Penn will also talk about common ground between cultures and building an inclusive community on campus, she said. If the conference accomplishes one thing, Diaz said she hopes it broadens student perspectives on the world. Its important to widen your world view, she said. Once its

New station to cut wait times

By Don Weinland
A new 23-bay station will make transportation to the university more convenient for the hundreds of students who use public transportation. The Regional Transportation Commission opened the new hub on Fourth and Lake streets Sunday, which provides more buses making wait times at stops shorter, RTC spokeswoman Felicia Archer said. Although no new bus lines have been added to the citys transportation system, eight new buses will service the station, she said. The new buses will better service popular lines, she added. We have a lot of students who depend on our system to get to school, she said. This new system makes it easier to connect to anywhere in the school. This semester, 236 UNR students and 13 faculty members purchased discounted bus passes, according to UNRs Parking and Transportation Services. The pass costs $70 and is valid between August and December. The stations grand opening on Thursday drew a crowd of more than 100, Archer said. Councilman Dave Aiazzi and Reno Mayor Bob Cashell spoke at the event. The new station at Fourth and Lake streets will bring much-needed business to the area, Barbara DiCianno, Aiazzis community liaison, said. It revitalizes an area that needs business, she said.

Th The new b bus station t ti downtown opened Sunday. The station, located at 4th and Lake Streets, was built to replace an outdated, smaller station downtown. The station cost $13 million to build, $4 million of which came from American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds, said Barbara DiCianno, a city ofcial. The opening of the new station in Reno comes a year after the opening of a new station in Sparks, updating the areas bus transportation system.
will stimulate small business in the area. The station is zoned for mixed usage and should draw a variety of business in the form of restaurants and other small enterprises such as dry cleaning, DiCianno said. The previous 16-bay bus station was built in 1986. Archer said the station was outdated. The new station cost $13 million $4 million of which came from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds, DiCianno said. The station was a prudent use of the federal stimulus money because it employed 457 people since construction began in April 2009, she said. With a 30-year projected lifespan, the station will benet the community for years to come, Archer said.

Students debate new tax

The Th University U i it of f

Nevada, Reno debate team held a public debate on Monday to address budget solutions for Nevada. The event was meant to increase awareness of potential budget cuts to education, encourage people to vote and raise awareness of the debate team, said Max Alderman, one of the debaters. For more information on the debate team, e-mail the teams coach, Phil Sharp, at By Ben Miller
In order to raise awareness of higher education budget issues in the election, the University of Nevada, Renos debate team held a public debate Monday. The team discussed the pros and cons of implementing a corporate income tax in Nevada to raise revenue for the states primary, secondary and postsecondary education systems, according to debate team coach Phil Sharp. Ideas such as this tend to be neglected before elections, he said. Obviously, some of our politicians dont like to talk about taxes around election time, Sharp said. The idea of raising taxes must be considered by politicians in the next scal biennium, said Heath Morrison, superintendent of Washoe County School District and the keynote speaker of the event. The various people running for ofce have said theyre going to solve the decit without raising taxes, and that puts a lot of things on the table for cuts, Morrison said. A lot of people are concerned and have questions. Morrison said more needs to be done than simply solving the budget crisis. Schools need to be a part of reforming the way education is approached in Nevada and what goals it aims for, he said. In terms of our response to the state, we need to be part of the conversation about what kinds of businesses we want to attract, Morrison said. The debate was an effective way to consider budget solutions because it argued for and against a specic proposal, Max Alderman, one of the debaters, said. In a debate, the discussion is similar to the ones that happen in legislative sessions and election debates, he said. In addition to arguing questions on the issues, the debate was meant to persuade people to vote, Sharp said. Here in Nevada, we have some races that have been highly-publicized, and for that reason it may be more important to some, he said. But voting is a duty that everyone shares.

Alumnus nets overseas job with college skills

By Ben Miller
Kevin Grant landed a job in Sweden at a mobile phone software company three months after he graduated in May. During his graduation trip to Costa Rica, Grant met Frank Schuil, the co-founder of Swedish software company Qubulus. After forming a friendship, the two stayed connected electronically and Qubulus later hired Grant because of his senior project. Grants senior project at the University of Nevada, Reno an indoor mapping and direction program for the blind t perfectly with Qubulus Salamander project, a positioning program aimed at marketing strategy. But while Schuil said Grants indoor positioning experience helped him get hired, the networking skills he learned at UNRs College of Engineering were even more important on the path to his current career, Grant said. I personally believe that your network is your most valuable asset, Grant said. And without my education, my network would never have been opened to the same world it is today. After Grant moved to Sweden to begin his work, his rst as-

of the University of Nevada, Reno, got a job in Sweden three months after graduating in May. He works for a company called Qubulus, which is developing an application for mobile phones that will accurately track where a user is inside a building.
signment at the company was Salamander, a demonstration of the companys idea, which is expanded by their latest project, Gecko. The project developed the idea of highly-accurate indoor positioning a system that allows market researchers to analyze exactly where someone is inside a building, and thus where advertising efforts should be directed. But more than that, Grant brought the good ol US startup vibe to the company, Schuil said. For Grant, that work ethic is dened by efciency and creativity and was cultured by Sergiu Dascalu, one of Grants engineering professors. An interesting practice that was instilled in me in the

engineering department was to always know what your teammates were working on, Grant said. Time is money, and two people concurrently working on the same problem without collaboration is one of the biggest money wasters in the industry. The company plans to release the full version of its application, Gecko, on Dec. 1. The application for smart phones will make a deal with users, Grant said. It will offer the user coupons for visiting a certain area, or tell the user where an event or service is in return for letting the program track their movement there. Grant said in order to protect the privacy of users, personal data will never be associated with specic individuals. Data will be provided mainly for businesses to assess their own trafc ow, he said. He envisions the application being widely used. If I told you there was a UNR (application) that told you where the closest printer you could use for free was, and in return I just wanted to record the path you took to get there, 90 (percent) of students would use it in a heartbeat, Grant said. Dascalu said Grants consciousness of students at UNR is an indication of the importance his education played in his life

environmental affairs manager, said many of the scores are arbitrary and dont reect current progress. The Sustainability Endowment Institute has been warned of gross errors in their report card, but has yet to improve their data-collecting processes. Theyre putting out false info and they know it, Sagebiel said. Their approach is bordering on exploitation. Theyre telling us, well give you an F if you dont do what we tell you to do. UNR received an F for endowment transparency in 2009, a B in 2010 and a C for 2011. But nothing has changed concerning the universitys endowment policy over the past three years, Sagebiel said. Although the Nevada System of Higher Education handles endowment investments for UNR and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, the two universities have received inconsistent scores. NSHE handles all of UNR and UNLVs investments, Sagebiel said. Nothing has changed Our money is invested by exactly the same people, in exactly the same way. And yet there are two radically different ratings. In July, the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education issued an open letter to the Sustainability Endowment Institute and six other rating organizations. The letter, signed by Sagebiel and environmental management faculty of 42 other universities, requested that rating organizations demonstrate their credentials in sustainability appraisal and

offer universities an opt-out from surveys. Providing information to a number of organizations can be taxing on limited green resources, Sagebiel said. UNRs failure to gather requested endowment information resulted in an F for its endowment transparency in 2009. The open letter also requested a higher level of accountability in verifying up to date information. UNRs food services has made considerable progress over the past year, Sagebiel said. But consecutive Cs in food and recycling fail to reect new progress. Russ Myers, director of Food Services, said the Sustainability Endowment Institutes rating standards are still ambiguous. Although the report card was issued for 2011, many of Food Services recent achievements are not taken into account, he said. Food Services got rid of food-carrying trays in August to reduce waste. All food waste is weighed and composted in the universitys composter, which was added this fall. The report card didnt reect these advancements. The Sustainability Endowment Institute awards higher scores to universities that use local produce. The standard is not applicable to all schools, Myers said. If thats their criteria, were at a disadvantage because we dont have a lot of locally grown produce here, he said.



Th The U University i it of fN Nevada, d Reno lost green points on food, recycling, and endowment transparency.
Christina Billingsley, the institutes communications fellow, said the report card is letter grade-based and not ordinal in ranking because resources such as local produce differ among schools. The object of the report card is to initiate dialogue on sustainability between universities and colleges, not to pit institutions against one another, she said.

and UNR Police Department ofcers. The treatment, Hussein said, was in retaliation for his whistle blowing report regarding the treatment of lab animals at university facilities in 2004. The matter was investigated, leading to dozens of federal citations against UNR. Throughout the trial and subsequent appeals, Hussein failed to provide the court with sufcient evidence to prove his claims, according to court documents. In its justication for ordering him to pay the defenses legal fees, the United States District Court in Nevada rebuked Hussein for not bringing sufcient evidence with his claims and then refusing to drop defendants from his lawsuit when the court ordered him to do so. Dr. Hussein transformed what could have and should have been a straightforward employment matter into a fullscale assault against nearly everyone who crossed his path, Judge James C. Mahan wrote in his judgment for that court. In a statement released after the ruling, NSHE Chancellor Dan Klaich said he was pleased to see the matter come to a close, stopping a drain on the resources. UNR Spokeswoman Jane Tors said the university looks forward to putting the matter behind it, and will continue to defend itself against the more than dozen other appeals Hussein still has pending against it.

Whether youre Mexican-American, AfricanAmerican, Asian-American, youre American rst. Ads that target specic populations such as Hispanics assume all members of an ethnicity will all vote for the same candidate, which is a misconception, Grey said. When youre of a demographic, I think theres a perception that youre going to vote a certain way, she said. But youre not bound by ethnicity when you vote. Local Democrat and Republican parties called the ad despicable and wrong. During a campaign rally Oct. 20 at UNR, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called the ad unfair to Hispanic voters. Its hard for me to comprehend anything in the political world thats more unfair or just plain dumb than telling people not to vote, he said before a crowd of about 200 supporters in the Virginia Street Gym. Virginia Dugan, secretary of the Washoe County Republican Party, said the ad was not endorsed or commended by the Washoe County Republican Party. We believe thats totally wrong, she said.

The nal three payments will come from the MWCs revenue distribution, Groth said. We would have preferred getting out earlier but do understand the WACs concerns, Glick said. We did not wish to hurt the WAC. WAC Commissioner Karl Benson said in a teleconference that although the conference originally sought $5 million from the schools, it was important to get the details down rather than face a lengthy court battle. The six WAC presidents and chancellors believe it is more important to settle the termination date at this time, rather than being tied up in court for several more months before knowing the status of the 201112 season, Benson said. Benson said if Nevada and Fresno State left, it would have threatened the conferences automatic qualifying status in several NCAA sports.

Groth said although the school preferred to leave next year, having an extra year provides some benets to the school. Groth said the athletics department will spend the next year mustering more excitement for the schools move to the new conference. It gives us a year to generate some enthusiasm and some revenue to move our programs forward, Groth said. We know where were at next year and know where were going to be in 2013. One of the main ways Groth said the university plans to accomplish this by scheduling MWC opponents as non-conference opponents in all sports so students can see the level of competition across the board the Wolf Pack will be facing in coming years. Although the settlement means Nevada will have to stay in the WAC for an extra year, Groth said the university will continue to look for opportunities to thrive. Were excited about the move, but we understand where

were at and what conference were at for the next year and a half, Groth said. We have to make the best of it and go from there. The agreement nally puts an end to the dispute and gives Nevada and Fresno State a denitive timeline for its departure from the WAC. It will increase external revenue for athletics and it will allow us to play traditional rivalries against Boise State and UNLV and up the level of competition, Glick said.

perhaps the question to ask is not why dont people vote, but why they ever do, said David Ryfe, a journalism professor at UNR. Many students believe their vote holds little sway overall and nd it isnt worth spending time that would be better used studying for classes or doing other activities, Ryfe said. Daniel Trouwborst, an 18-yearold math major, said he is registered to vote in Colorado but is uninformed and uninterested in the election this year. The midterm is too much to keep track of with homework and classes to pay attention to, he said. I havent really followed anything, Trouwborst said. I dont really know whats going on. Aside from being too busy, Trouwborst said he and his peers feel like their votes will change little in a system already set in stone. Younger people think their one vote wont make a difference, he said. Thats how I feel

sometimes. Like Trouwborst, many youth are disaffected by the raging political debates that sweep up the country biannually, said Eric Herzik, a UNR political science professor. A lack of relevance can result in apathy, he said. Much of it centers from a general lack of interest in politics, Herzik said. People often do not feel that politics matters in their daily life. This is especially the case for younger voters who are often less xed to a particular location But student attitude toward voting can change with exposure, said Jordan Butler, a member of the nonpartisan voting promoters Re-Energize the Vote. Butler has been asking students to vote on campus since mid-August. Students will participate in the political process if they are engaged but someone needs to get the idea in their head, he said. I think if we hadnt been here, students wouldnt have been exposed (to the political process), Butler said. As far as registering

to vote is concerned, people dont wake up in the morning and think about it. Khang Le, a 18-year-old electrical engineering major, said hes tired of political advertisements and people asking him to vote. He said fellow students have pestered him about voting for months. Le called his generation lazy when it comes to political involvement. This laziness is more than just student ignorance of politics, Herzik said. The end result is the younger generation being disregarded by politics. By not being a coherent or forceful voting block, the interests of youth do get less attention from political decision makers, he said. Older voters have a disproportionate say on issues relating to, say, healthcare or social security because they vote.

WAC settlement should be applauded


On Oct. 25, 3:22 p.m., Francis wrote: A warning of what Senator Harry Reid has in store for us, if he is reelected? An AMNESTYfor 13 to 20 million illegal aliens, with a price tag of 2.6 Trillion dollars to process each individual and subsidize their welfare programs, according to the Heritage Foundation. They send approximately $60 billion annually out of the country to their families, plus an estimate $113 billion dollars at the local level of government for public benets. Harry Reid voted to continuously fund Sanctuary cities and States, so did Senator Barbara Boxer of California. Harry Reid and the majority of democrats crashed American-English as the recognized language of this country, and voted for illegal aliens to participate in our wilting Social Security System. Senator Reid, Boxer and the largest proportion of LibDemocrats voted equally, to what top Democrats wanted every time. This is sheer madness when his Nevada has the largest proportion of jobless Americans, the highest rate of bankruptcies and home foreclosures.

fter months of bickering, the Nevada athletics department will enter the Mountain West Conference in the 2012-13 academic year not a year earlier as it hoped. And instead of paying a $5 million fine to the Western Athletic Conference, it will pay a $900,000 settlement. But why does it even have to pay that? Because its less than Nevada would pay taking the case to court. President Milton Glick said Nevada didnt know

how high legal costs might be if it pursued the case, but a court battle would likely be expensive. His decision should be applauded given the circumstances of the case and the need to move forward for the parties involved. Its easy to say Nevada should push the case, considering the evidence in its favor. But its hard to blame anybody for this mess, or say Nevada should have handled it differently, because so much of what transpired

went on behind closed doors. Nevada and Fresno State, schools that made the decision to depart Aug. 9, decided last week to pay a $900,000 settlement even though they are making the June 2011 deadline (however, the deadline itself is debatable) by 10 months to avoid making an already nasty divorce nastier. Despite the debate, Nevada had a favorable deal. Settling is a smart choice. Not only did the MWC waive the conference entrance fee, it will also pay

the final three payments of $180,000 of the settlement charges. The WAC has agreed to pay for the first. Both conferences will use money they would have given to Nevada from game revenue, and pay for the settlement instead. Plus Nevada and Fresno State have an extra year to prepare. Neither athletics department is on par competitively or monetarily with Boise State and this extra year of preparation is much needed. But the dust has settled.

Nevada is ready to leave the WAC in 2012-13 and the WAC will get its fair compensation. Now, Nevada can get ready to rub the University of Nevada Las Vegas nose in its football inferiority with more than a head to head match up each year it can do it as a superior player in conference standings. Lets move on, and play ball.

Halloween craziness with homosexuals

his past Saturday, as I strapped on the last tea bag to my belt loop and wrote Wheres the birth certicate?!?! on my Sharron Angle T-shirt, I knew the night was going to be weird. Halloween is when freaks and crazies come out of the woodwork. Nowhere is this truer than with gay men. Halloween in the gay world is like mixing porn with horror lms. Amidst scantily-clad men and ghoulish women, Halloweeners will nd a scene most horrifying and dangerous. Gay bars on the weekends get pretty crazy, but when people throw on more makeup and glitter than usual, its almost unbearable. There are a multitude of costumes out and about, but three specic costumes plague the gay community on Halloween.

Top Halloween Weekend Events: 1) Zombie Crawl 2) Carving pumpkins... 348) Go to a football game.


As sure as kids will chomp down on candy corn, there will always be overweight gay men trying to t into skimpy costumes that would even make Christina Aguilera look fat. Gay men think its funny or sexy to wear a Lieutenant Dangle costume. While I didnt mind seeing the hot cop downtown, I remembered later, after seeing a fat man in the same garb at the 5 Star Saloon, that some people should never wear those costumes. Beware the not-sosexy stripper, as he is the grabbiest one at the bar.

Exhibitionism can be fun, but try not to take it too far over the edge
ex is amazing. Yet every so often (more often than we think), peoples sexual behaviors bring unwanted feelings and harm upon others. The topic for this week is exhibitionism, which is dened by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders as the act of showing ones genitals to another unexpecting individual without consent known as ashing. However, it is important to keep in mind that one of the distinguishing factors in this behavior being labeled as a mental disorder is Tarah the issue of Bowser controlling the impulses to expose oneself. So dont assume the streakers at the college games are all clinically diagnosable. Although it is a rather odd thing to do, it is funny nonetheless! Heres some food for thought: When you hear the label sex offender, what image or type of person pops into your head? Was it the dirty old man in a raincoat stereotype?



If I were to classify myself among the three categories, Id be here. These men, while for the most part are harmless, can be irritating. Theyll let you know how they spent hours coming up with a concept that makes everyone laugh. For instance, after seeing a guy dressed up as Patrick Star from SpongeBob Squarepants, I laughed and told him how much I liked his costume. He proceeded to tell me the entire story about how he made it, taking precious time away from me and my beer. Theyre pretty harmless for the most part just try to make sure they dont cling on to you or its over.

These are the worst gay costumes of all bumblebees, moths, hawks, angels and devils. If you can name a living creature, this man will nd a way to put wings on it. The danger radius around these men is awful. Instead of the usual small space that people need to walk around and perform normal tasks, the unreasonably dangerous wing bearer has a 10-foot circle around him where anyone has the potential to be poked, swatted or thwacked by giant wings. While Ive seen women out and about with wings on Halloween before, they pale in comparison to men sporting wings larger than ones used at the Victorias Secret Fashion Show. Not every gay man ts in one of these categories, but a large majority do. Next time youre out for the Zombie Crawl, keep your eyes peeled, and if you do encounter these men, I have one piece of advice for you get the hell out before you become one yourself.

The truth is that in reported cases of exhibitionism (criminal and psychological proles), the demographics seem to favor a more frequent occurrence in teenage to young adult males. In fact, cases in which the offender is older than 50 are extremely rare. Still, keep in mind that exhibitionism in merely one of the paraphilias listed in the DSM. Those dirty old men are still out there! There are numerous theories to explain why people are or become exhibitionists. The biological theory holds that higher testosterone levels increase the likelihood of the disorder, mainly because it increases the sex drive and makes male urges far more intense. Learning psychologists hold that the behavior is a learned defense in response to emotional abuse as a child. Other theories have to do with correlations between exhibitionism and brain damage as well as Attention Decit Hyperactive Disorder. Like I mentioned already, cases of exhibitionism are more prominently seen in younger males. However, this is not to say that there are no female exhibitionists. Part of the reason for a

low frequency in occurrence in females could be due to the fact that women are more likely to get away with ashing. Perhaps theyre sneakier about it. I swear ofcer, I thought the window was closed while I was undressing! Sure! In any case, I read a quote that brings up a good point. It said that men exhibit nothing but the genitals while women exhibit everything, but the genitals. Think about the way college girls dress. Technically, most of us are guilty of socially sanctioned exhibitionism at one time or another. Personally, I think being naked is natural and awesome. However, subjecting others to your naked body without their consent is inappropriate and should be controlled in some way. If you feel the need to expose yourself, you should ask rst. Since exhibitionism is one of the top three reasons for being charged as a sex offender, you dont want to take any chances. Thats the naked truth.

What is your favorite Halloween costume?
I saw a guy make a homemade Link costume once. It had everything from a bomb bag to a boomerang. Plus, Zelda is my favorite game. There was a taco costume on sale for dogs. It had a picture of a pug in a taco suit. It was adorable. My favorite costume was one I made. I was Pyramid Head from Silent Hill. I won the costume contest that year. I tried to convince my boyfriend to wear a Lieutenant Dangle costume. It was hilarious but he wouldnt buy it.

Public displays of affection showcase comfort

managed to get from class to class without getting physically ill. And then, just as I was starting to tune out all the lovey-dovey nonsense that went along with my daily walk from the William Raggio Building to the Knowledge Center, the unthinkable happened. I became one of them. About two months ago, I started dating someone. It is the rst ofcial relationship I have had since I became a grown-up. But I dont feel like a grown-up. I feel like a giddy little girl who needs to constantly be reminded to come back down to the real world. All of my relationship rules created mostly out of bitterness and jealousy have own out the window. I used to see public displays of affection as a sign of codependence. It was unnecessary and seemed more like a production than an expression of love. My annoyance was not limited to over-the-top, borderline humping each other in the streets kinds of public displays of affection. Kissing, hugging and even holding hands were blatant publications of your relationship status. Beyond that, I avoided PDA because I knew that there was someone just like me who would make snarky comments about my actions. So how in the world did I become the girl who kissed her boyfriend without caring if anyone was watching? When did my snobby, stuck-up belief system shatter? This happened when I realized how much I needed a strong shoulder. The last few years of my life have seemed like a constant conict. Facing family, health and nancial problems isnt exactly how I imagined spending my glory years. But when you are facing the unexpected, you have to rely on your strengths. I decided that I was going to be that strength. In many aspects of my daily life, I emotionally separated myself from my friends and family. I was my only condant because I knew that I would always be there. This year, I have gone through more personal issues than any other time in my life. I needed someone to talk to, but my stubborn individualism encouraged me to suck it up and stay strong. Just when I thought my entire world was unraveled, I met someone willing to help me put it back together. I quickly realized that I could trust him. With this trust, all of my weird intimacy fears fell away and I realized just how stupid they were in the rst place. Now, I dont care if anyone is judging me because I have found peace within my relationship and myself. I am in no way encouraging you to start groping your signicant other in public. Nor am I encouraging you to rely 100 percent on someone else to solve your problems. But if you let go and allow someone to help you, it is amazing how close you can become.

Submitted Oct. 27 via e-mail: On Wednesday, October 20, 2010 I spoke at a rally that supported the re-election of U.S.Senator Harry Reid. It seems as though the opinion that I voiced stirred up some controversy in the most recent issue of the Nevada Sagebrush. My opinion is just that, my own opinion. As a student at this public university, I am entitled to express myself and my personal opinions on campus. Aside from my role as a student on this campus, I also hold the ofce of Vice President within the Associated Students of the University of Nevada. During the rally, my title was used to introduce me. Though I would have rather not been introduced by my title within ASUN, I have no control over the actions of others and the fact that I was introduced this way. I have always been a strong believer in leading by example. By speaking up in what I believe in, I was performing my civic duties as an individual. In doing this, I know that other students have the same right. It is important and healthy for students to participate in political events, such as this one, and to start a healthy and educational discussion about politics in Nevada and the U.S. To reiterate what I have said in this letter and to Nevada Sagebrush reporters in person, I spoke at the rally as a student, not on behalf of ASUN. I, just like every other student on this campus have the right to voice my opinion about issues and topics that I am passionate about. I too have First Amendment rights. ASUN did not issue a formal announcement endorsing any candidate(s) for ofce, I did not say in my speech that ASUN endorsed Harry Reid and I do not believe that every student at this university has the same opinions as I. As long as I am a student at this university, I have the right to voice my opinion as I did last week. If you have any further questions for me, please contact me at Sincerely, Leissan Sadykova


Speak up, use your voting power

harron Angle: Too Extreme. Harry Reid: An Illegal Aliens Best Friend. Rory Reid: I have a plan, my opponent doesnt. Brian Sandoval: Im honest, my opponent isnt. This campaign season is one of the worst I have seen since I began Becca paying Kitchen attention to politics. I cant think of a single campaign commercial that is positive. As much as I love politics, Im counting down the days until Nov. 3 rolls around.

This bickering among adults is worse than listening to my 3-year-old cousin throw a temper tantrum. Every other year around this time, I hear people complain about how they cant wait for this election to be over. But this year, people are giving up altogether. The animosity the Reid and Angle campaigns created has caused many people to declare that they wont vote this year because Angle is not an acceptable replacement for Reid. That certainly is your right. No one is going to send the town mob, complete with pitchforks, on you if you dont vote. But Senate and gubernatorial campaigns are not the only elections happening. There is more riding on this election cycle than just whos headed to Washington and

whos moving into the governors mansion. Remember, we are voting for whoever will represent us in the House as well as numerous state positions where political hopefuls are just waiting to serve you. I know in one of my past columns, I advocated against choosing the None of the Above option on the ballot. But if you really cant force yourself to choose between Reid or Angle, dont just stay home and ignore the signicance of what it means to be. Choose None of the Above. There are other candidates who need your support. Anywhere I go on campus, I hear students complain about how no one cares about us, no one hears our voices. But then I hear those same voices claim they wont vote. Im gonna stick it to the man.

Ill show them. Well, heres the opportunity to be heard. If you dont vote, you dont have the right to complain about how your government is running. Not voting and complaining about government is like complaining that your house is dirty without ever cleaning it. You have no right to be upset that your government isnt helping you if you dont help the people running it hear what you want. There are people dying in the Middle East to have the chance to have a voice in their government. We have a responsibility to not only ourselves and other adults, but to those who arent eligible to vote yet.

Theres a difference between an endorsement by an organization and someone being introduced with their appropriate title. Lets be real, no one thought ASUN was endorsing Harry Reid or anyone else.

Were any ASUN resources used on this event? No. Was there a formal endorsement? No. Did Leissan say she was representing ASUN? No. Was she introduced and used her titled, a proper action on campus, at an event she believed in? Yes. Maybe the Sagebrush could spend a little less time with their panties in a bunch and more time focused on those two gubernatorial candidates that they gave space to.

The fashion gods are calling for the double denim trend this season
Celebrities like Kanye West, David Beckham and Alexa Chung have been spotted recently in head-to-toe denim everywhere from runway shows to Rodeo Drive in California. D&Gs opening look for their spring 2010 line paired distressed-denim jackets with light-wash jeans. If you want to try the fashion forward denim ensemble, my words to you are to proceed with caution. To bring this look into season, make sure to go dark preferably a mid-wash for jeans and a deeper and navy-wash for jackets. Double denim evokes a masculine, work-wear vibe. Guys can play this up with a pair of Doc Martens, or black leather shoes. For girls, stay away from tennis shoes and go with a heeled boot with buckles, or risk looking like you just stepped out of a Saved by the Bell episode. If denim jackets arent up your alley, the chambray shirt is an alternate option. A chambray shirt works well for layering. For the fall, wear them open with a light annel and a T-shirt underneath, rolling the denim and annel to a get a ash of color. If you want to look more rocker and less hipster, basic black T-shirts or camisoles are an easy way to go. Beware of bandanas, however, as they will most likely project a Wild-West image. As winter creeps in, a simple leather jacket or heavy sweatshirt over a chambray shirt adds texture and warmth. In addition, a scarf can help you to layer textures without looking like youre trying too hard. When it comes to accessories, tread lightly. Denim, especially when there are two different colors and textures, looks busy enough. When donning rolled sleeves, steer clear of big watches or bracelets and focus on rings. That hemp friendship bracelet the hippie chick down the hall made you will work too, so long as there are no peace signs or beads to make you look like youre trying to audition for a Woodstock retrospective. However you choose to spin this look, remember one thing absolutely no cowboy boots. This isnt Madonnas Ray of Light music video, nor is campus the appropriate place to look like youre trying to break the record for bull riding. I wouldnt suggest belting the jeans either its likely to make you look less fashion forward and more truck driver. Also, its either denim jacket or chambray never both. Triple denim is a look even professional soccer player David Beckham cant pull off.

Well, the estranged underground lm director portrayed in Cecil B. Demented has.

5. DARK PASSAGE (1947)

Dark Passage is about a convicted murderer named Vincent Parry, played by Humphrey Bogart, who escapes to San Francisco from San Quentin. Because of the subjective filming, the audience sees exactly what Parry experiences, from his escape to his interactions with people trying to help him. Despite the lms innovative use of subjective perspective, it was a commercial op, because Humphrey Bogarts face has very little screen time. This did not cater to the demands of the public. Although it was a commercial op, it garnered an underground following for its innovative cinematic techniques.

3. HEATHERS (1989)
Starring a young Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, the lm focuses on Veronica Sawyer and her peculiar boyfriend J.D. living in the world of the most powerful clique in school the Heathers. When a prank on the lead Heather (all three members of the clique are named Heather) turns into a murder, Veronica and J.D. quickly x the situation by framing the crime as a suicide. Films revolving around high schoolers usually lack intrigue and imagination, however, the ideas in Heathers extend far past the scope of the movie, dabbling in the media swaying public opinion and the generation gap. Relating to this lm is pretty easy its for anyone whos felt like an outcast in high school.

to decide what is more grating, Swifts voice or her terrible, underdeveloped lyrics. Dear John, is a thinlyveiled jab at singer John Mayer, who Swift dated last year while working on a song with him for his album, Battle Studies. Swift tries to spew venom, but instead ends up sounding like a pathetic little girl with no real grip on relationships like a little girl who takes fairytales too literally. She sings, My mother accused me of losing my mind but I swore I was fine/ You paint me a blue sky and go back and turn it to rain/And I lived in your chess game. The only redeeming quality of Dear John is how Swifts vocal progression is shown. Her voice in the song is the most rich and soulful sounding it has ever been. Innocent, Swifts highly anticipated response to the whole Kanye West 2009 MTV Video Music Awards incident, is laughable at best. Swift

tries to come off forgiving and preachy Mother Teresa-like, but instead sounds foolish and self-righteous. She condescendingly sings to West, Its OK, life is a tough crowd/32, and still growin up now/Who you are is not what you did/Youre still an innocent. Swifts lack of self-awareness is once again apparent when she ironically preaches about the importance of kindness in the song Mean, right before allegedly calling her exboyfriends (Joe Jonas) former fling, Camilla Belle, a slut of sorts in the song, Better Than Revenge. Surely, there are a lot of people who love Swifts style of music. After all, Speak Now is expected to sell about 1 million copies within the first week of its release. However, unless you enjoy listening to a grown woman refusing to mature and still sing about pubescent topics, then Speak Now is not the album for you.

Saw ends on a whimper, not a bang

By Lukas Eggen
Saw 3D returned for the supposed nal installment in the horror franchise. While it may be more in-your-face and grotesque than ever, the seventh installment is also one of the worst entries. Fans of the series will initially be very happy at the beginning of the lm when Dr. Lawrence Gordon (Cary Elwes) returns after appearing in the rst lm. However, the lm is also a boring, convoluted and rushed mess that fails to scare the audience. The meat and bones of the series has always been the traps, which is a major part of the problem. There are the most traps in any Saw film, but they are bland and unimaginative compared to past entries in the series. They lack the complexity and the Rube Goldberg-like parts that the Saw traps had. While no one sees the Saw series for its storyline, I appreciate the directors attempts to keep the story moving and fresh. The directors introduced new characters that took the lms in new directions, instead of rehashing the same plot. Despite the attempt, the seventh lm could have ended the series on a higher note. It could have tied up all the loose ends and sent the series off with a bang. Instead, Dr. Gordon has a gloried cameo role, the ending could be seen a mile away and, worst of all, it was left open for a possible sequel. Director Kevin Greutert seems to think showing random people getting killed will cause the audience to have an emotional connection with the characters. Each time the lmmakers try to make the audience feel sympathetic for its characters, the characters are paper-thin in depth and the acting laughably bad. In fact, its always bad when you feel more sorry for the clearly-dened villain of the lm than the victims. To top it off, the 3D is both stupid and unnecessary. If Avatar represented what 3D could add to a movie when done right, Saw represented everything wrong about 3D. It didnt add anything meaningful to the story having random things thrown at your face in

some cheap, gimmicky way. Greutert wanted to direct Paranormal Activity 2, but Lionsgate forced him to direct Saw instead, so maybe he sabotaged the lm. One can only hope that was the case, because if this was his best effort, its best he stay away from the directors chair again. Its a shame since the rst Saw was genuinely creepy and relied more on mood to scare its audience. I was hoping Saw 3D would end the series on a high note. Instead, in a year thats seen its share of dumb horror lms, the series ends in a whimper and is possibly the worst lm of the season.

Pop star unable to show maturity on third album

By Enjolie Esteve
Taylor Swift is famous for her candid, pop/country songs and lyrics that sound like they have been ripped out of the diary she kept in middle school. Her new album is no different than the title suggests. Speak Now is the equivalent of a Mean Girls style burn book aimed at her exes in which she reveals all the secrets about her turbulent relationships with Joe Jonas and more. Between her sixth grade status lyrics and whiny, pitchy vocals, Speak Now will have listeners begging Swift to forever hold her peace. Swifts third studio album is the musical equivalent of the Us Weekly magazine tabloid as she dishes the dirt rather than offering a candid look into her own life. While her writing has only marginally improved, Swifts musical sound has progressed from country to pop, making her record more polished. If it werent for the use of banjos in songs such as Mean and the slightly forced sounding twang in Swifts vocals, Speak Now

would be a purely pop record. Mine, the debut single, is presented like a play-by-play of an imaginary relationship she wrote in her diary when she was 12 while dreaming about what it is like to be a grown-up. Swifts writing is literal, immature and in dire need of metaphor usage. Not every song has to be as deep as a Radiohead hit, but this is just too transparent. When Swift sings in that annoying, Minnie Mouse-sounding voice that is about three octaves too high for her vocal range, And I remember that ght 2:30 a.m./You said everything was slippin right out of our hands/I ran out crying and you followed me out into the street, its hard

Local independent skate shop closes

By Coree J. Hogan
Out of Bounds skate shop closed its doors, ending its 14-year run of serving the local skateboarding community. The shop came to Reno in April 2010 after moving from its original location in Carson City, but then faced economic turmoil, prompting the Saturday closure. To many local skaters, closing the shop has a loss of more than just a store since it served as a community gathering and sponsored several skaters. Out of Bounds was voted Best Skate Shop in Town by the Reno News and Review for the past seven years, owner Kathy Grifn said. But with skateboarding hitting mainstream culture, the stores recognition was not enough. As the sport gained popularity, chain retail outlets like Zumiez appeared in malls across the country, offering overly-competitive rates for skateboards and related accessories. Years ago, if you had to buy skate shoes you had to go to a skate shop, Grifn said. Now theyre available at Marshalls, so the market isnt as specialized anymore. The skate shop had also tried to offer a unique venue aside from the mall setting, but was unsuccessful because of city codes. Employees and volunteers constructed a mini-ramp on the property in May, but were soon forced to disassemble it by city ofcials. The ramp did not drastically affect sales but was popular with shop regulars and kids, Grifn said. Justin Hackel, a 27-year-old Out of Bounds employee, built the ramp with a friend for the shop. Hackel said closing Out of Bounds will have a negative effect on the Reno skateboarding community. (Out of Bounds) was kind of like a clubhouse. Its where 20-30 of us went to hang out, he said. Ive always worked at skate shops and run them with friends.

Local skate shop, Out of Bounds, closed Saturday citing economic woes as its primary reason.
One of the most important parts is making kids happy. Ive noticed the kids here and that are part of the Out of Bounds team are more real. None of the other shops exactly had their nger on the pulse of skateboarding. Other skate shops in the Reno area include Eternal Boardshop and Zumiez. Eternal specializes in snowboarding, with little mention of skateboarding on their websites. Zumiez sells skateboards and accessories, often at a much cheaper rate than independently-run businesses. Glen Sandau, 20, a local skateboarder, has shopped at Out of Bounds and Zumiez for many reasons. I bought a lot of my stuff from Out of Bounds when I moved to Reno, but lately Ive been going to Zumiez. There, you can get a full skateboard for $100-$140. The last setup I got was $99 and it wasnt bad for being only 100 bucks, Sandau said. A lot of us like to shop at Out of Bounds. We live right next to it. If you need a part right then, its easier to go to Out of Bounds but the price difference is way better so its worth it to go to Zumiez. Jess Anderson, a 15-year-old local skateboarder that frequents the skate park at Idlewild, said some of his friends were sponsored by Out of Bounds and now will have to start looking for other sponsors. He agrees closing the shop will have a negative outcome for the skateboarding community in Reno. I think itll affect skaters in general. There might be less people skating at the plaza. If someone breaks a board, itll probably take them longer to get a new one, Anderson said. Itll denitely affect where skaters go when they arent skating. Grifn said despite closing Out of Bounds, the staff plans to open a nonprot indoor skateboarding facility where they will hold a skate camp. There, shop team members will act as teachers for younger skaters. She said she is unsure when the

With enough monsters and madmen in his selections to do justice to Halloween weekend, college professor Joe Hunt read aloud from his new collection Dead Mens Tale at Sundance Bookstore on Friday and at Borders on Saturday. I woke up one morning with a vision, Hunt said, who teaches at both the University of Nevada, Reno and Truckee Meadows Community College. I thought, I have to do a Halloween reading. Hunt divided his reading into segments, beginning with pirates, progressing to monsters and swamp creatures, and culminating with the grand nale a bonus ghost story, as he called it Felix Cube and the Fog Monster. He even drew illustrations on postersized paper to go along with his reading of the nal tale. Other elements of Hunts quirky personality shone throughout the evening, both in his style of reading and, of course, in the poetry itself. He made a point of addressing the audience to explain potentially confusing references in his poems, such as the Roger (referring to the Jolly Roger, otherwise known as the Grim Reaper) and an allusion to a James Brown song. He was easy, open and humorous, taking on different voices for different speakers and even allowing for some audience participation. His quirky sense of humor came through clearly in his poems. At the beginning of the evening, in the few minutes before the reading began, an audience member asked Hunt if he knew any Halloween jokes. All of the poems are jokes,

he quipped, and he seemed to be summing up the evenings readings in one easy sentence. In spite of their amusing qualities or perhaps because of them Hunts poems also hinted at something deeper. While outwardly discussing Dracula and Frankenstein, they also delved into the root of the human condition and what motivates us to act. By approaching this age-old subject in a new, fresh way, Hunts poems achieved what many others fail to do they catch their readers attention and keep it. Most people dont like poetry, Hunt said. I dont like regular poems. Hunts poems certainly cant be categorized as regular. In what he chose to read from his collection, he touched on Dracula remembering what it is like to feel young again, why parrots are always the companions of pirates, the bride of Frankenstein, if radishes keep away vampires and so much more. Most importantly, he seems to be following his own advice to readers: If you dont like poetry, maybe youre reading the wrong stuff.

Eraserhead was the rst lm that blew my mind. The lm follows a man named Henry Spencer living in a world ravaged by industrialism. He copes with living in a nearapocalyptic reality by fantasizing about a woman living in his radiator with a disgured face. The world of Eraserhead is heavily weighted with symbolism and surrealism, but rather than the dreamy ambiance of many lms, this lm feels more like a nightmare. Accurately describing the lms meticulous details is a lost cause. It is simply something to be experienced and interpreted. It surpasses most viewers comprehension of the traditional lm.

While anime and manga gain popularity in U.S. mainstream culture, the Japanese art form battles for a Reno outlet


By Jessic Jessica ssica c Fryman

Once cons considered onsidered an underground phenomenon, anime culture is now bursting its unique art style into the mainstream, enthusiasts say. The push to becoming more popular has come over time with technology and social networking helping spread the word about Japanese animation, which now includes multiple subgenres that are broadcast in several mediums, including comics, lms and both video and tabletop games. While the genre known for its stylistic bright colors and mature cartoon content is gaining more followers, some say Reno still lags behind other places as an outlet for the art form. In an effort to change that, the University of Nevada, Reno club Anime and Manga Society is open to the public and provides a place for enthusiasts to network with one another while hosting lm and TV viewing events every Friday, club president Jared Volk, 25, said. During the past several years, the club has seen interest grow in its annual miniconvention Shadows which inspired the citys debut convention this year. Sierra Nevada Anime Fans Unite Convention hosted its inaugural event at the end of October with hopes of furthering the move-

ment locally. It went better than any of us expected, convention chair Nathan Sindar said of the attendance estimates that nearly doubled. Reno is a great spot for it. Unfortunately, theres not a lot of it because the companies havent realized it. But now everyone who knows about it from the Con can tell their friends. SNAFU Con, which attracted about 700 guests, hosted guest speakers and how-to workshops on various aspects of the genre and subgenres. Much of the conference focused on teaching people how to break into the industry, whether it be through voice acting or drawing. Aside from more local conventions, enthusiasts said they think Reno could benet from more meet-up events, anime-themed arcades and more venues that sell a wider variety of merchandise. Christine Sullivan, a 19-year-old Carson City resident, moved to the area about one year ago from the East Coast where she said the fan base for anime is much larger. I havent seen a lot in Reno, she said. Sure theres a whole bunch of fans here, but theyre not as networked. Sullivan said she thinks the Con, which she attended, is a great starting point to seeing the genre become more available in Reno.

The Internet is de a big part of the enitely n movement gaining gp popularity, she said. The Internet ha anime has made access to anim m me much more convenient, since viewers no longer have to wait months for material to make it from Japan to the United States media. Before people could download lms and TV shows online, they would basically have to hope an anime series would make it onto a U.S. TV network. Now if you really want to you can nd it almost immediately on the Internet, said Volk, who studies international relations with an emphasis on Asian Study. You can nd almost any show you want a day after its been released in Japan and already translated. Locally, the Internet is a hub for an anime meet up group, a Facebook page and a place to get the word out about events like SNAFU Con. Although many say the movement is quickly gaining more traction, it still battles stigmas that its followers are social retards. I think that that stigma is there and its tough to get rid of, Volk said. I dont think its a justied stigma that happened because people didnt know what it was when anime rst happened. Many agree that although the Internet is helping people become more aware of the

genre, its not enough at times. A lot of people think anime what the heck? said Katie Wilbur, a 19-year-old undecided major at UNR who likes the genre. They think its like regular cartoons, or like Sponge Bob, but its not. She said the content is more mature, with plot lines ranging from hero vs. villain, high school life or mystical-based. The genre also allows viewers to learn about the Japanese art forms, language and culture, adding a substance not found in other comics. Art geeks, halo nerds, science ction addicts everyone probably has something they love in those genres and anime can bring it together, Sindar said. We have something for everyone.

Running backs improvise in Tauas absence

By Lukas Eggen
Last season, running back was one of Nevadas deepest positions. Featuring two backs (Luke Lippincott and Vai Taua) who rushed for more than 1,000 yards, the Wolf Pack also had four running backs rush for more than 100 yards in a single game. With Lippincott gone, Mike Ball, Courtney Randall and Lampford Mark were expected to take on a larger role and help Taua give the Wolf Pack one of the deepest backelds in the nation. Instead, Taua has been the main back, averaging 132.6 yards per game. Meanwhile, Ball, Randall and Mark have combined for 71.5 yards per game. After head coach Chris Ault decided to sit Taua against Utah State on Saturday to give his ankle an extra week to heal, the other running backs seized the opportunity. With Taua sitting out, Randall, Ball and Mark made the most of their chance. They combined for 203 yards and four touchdowns. Randall led the group, rushing for 93 yards the most by a running back other than Taua this year. Weve had good depth, Ault said. I was real pleased that they all responded very well and all played well. Were excited for that. It gives us a chance to see other guys and they all did a good job. Taua will return to the lineup Saturday against Idaho, Ault said. Although he missed the game, Taua said it wasnt surprising that the Wolf Pack didnt see a dropoff in its run game against the Aggies.

Music sparks Pack energy

ESPN controls kickoff changes

By Juan Lpez
Per the Western Athletic Conferences TV contract, the Nevada athletics department does not have any say when ESPN wants to change the game time for a sporting event, Nevada Associate Athletics Director Keith Hackett said. ESPNU, which picked up the Wolf Pack football teams Saturday game against Utah State, moved kickoff time from 1:05 p.m. to 7:35 p.m. Nevada does not receive any compensation when kickoff times are moved to a different time on the same day, Hackett said. However, the team likely saw a drop in expected revenue. The games attendance was 11,558 the lowest since Dec. 1, 2007, when Nevada drew 9,113 fans against Louisiana Tech. Several fans said they would have attended if the game had been earlier. When ESPN picks these games, they tell us what time were going to play and we have no exibility in this, Hackett said. We have to play this game at the time they tell us. We cant say, No, were not

The volleyball team uses its locker room sound system to get pumped up before its home matches. Its record at home is 9-2.


Nevada hopes its boom box will improve its road results
Cory Thomas
Before home matches, the Nevada volleyball team sings and dances in its locker room to Whip My Hair by Willow Smith the teams favorite song to blast through its speaker system and get hyped up to. Since the team cant bring its locker room to road matches, head coach Devin Scruggs decided to bring a little boom box to emulate the teams home energy on the road. With its boom box handy, the team won both of its road games this weekend, doubling its road win total for the season. The Wolf Pack is 4-9 on the road and 9-2 at home this season. Its statistics are better across the board at home as well. Nevada is 23-12 at home in sets and 20-33 on the road, it has 84 more kills, and 85 less errors at home than on the road. The team says its easier to get energized for a game at home because of its locker room sound system. Our locker room has a pretty sweet sound system so on the road we bring just a tiny boom box and its not as loud, junior outside hitter Erin Garvey said. While the boom box, an iHome, is not as loud as the sound system in the locker room. Nevada is 2-1 in the three games it has used the system. I brought them a little boom box (against New Mexico State) so they were denitely rocking out and they actually had some really good energy, Scruggs said.

In the Wolf Packs last three road games it brought an iHome to get the team pumped up. Players are forced to leave their hotel room for a couple of hours for every road match, in order for the team to stay loose. Some players say traveling is harder on the body. Nevada has 84 more kills and 85 less errors at home than on the road. The Wolf Packs record is 4-9 on the road, compared to 9-2 at home. The team earned its rst two-game road winning streak of the season by beating Fresno State and San Jose State.

Local quad rugby team sees bright side of last-place nish

By Lukas Eggen
For quad rugby player Jelena Hateld-Parker, her rst tournament with the Sierra Storm was nerve-wracking. She was not worried about the competition or about winning she was worried about getting in. I thought coach might sideline me for all the games, Hateld-Parker said. But I got in and I thought I did pretty well. The Sierra Storm, Renos only quad rugby team, competed at the Reno Rumble tournament last Friday to Sunday at the Plumas Gym, which featured teams from around the West. Hateld-Parker saw lots of playing time and made her mark, winning the tournaments Sportsmanship Award. Hateld-Parker was one of the bright spots for the Storm, whose closest match was against Northridge in a 43-29 loss. It was a little harder than I expected, Hateld-Parker said. With the whistles and the fouls, I wasnt used to that yet. The team featured three current and former Nevada students: Gary Mokuau, Liz Phillips and Chris Chapman. Although the Storm nished in sixth by losing each of its ve matches in the round robin tournament, the weekend wasnt about winning and losing for the Storm. Head coach Rick Mason said the experience the team gained is invaluable for the team going

The Nevada mens basketball team will put on the second annual Student Section 101 at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at Lawlor Events Center. Head coach David Carter will host the event where students will learn about traditions and cheers. Pizza will be provided. The cheerleaders will be there and video taken will be displayed on the Jumbotron during the season. The event is part of a movement by the university to draw more students to sporting events. The school is attempting to catapult school spirit. During the season, there will be a shuttle from the dorms to Lawlor Events Center. The athletics department gave out 700 to 800 student tickets per game last season, Darron Pinkney, Nevadas director of marketing, said. He said the goal this year is to give out 1,200 student tickets.

THE SKINNY: The Wolf Pack go on the road to face Idaho with something to prove. While it did beat Utah State last week, Nevada was outscored in the second half 41-21 and the defense allowed the Aggie quarterback to throw for a season high 399 yards. The Wolf Pack will be looking for a blowout to prove it belongs among the top 25 teams in the nation. The Vandals are coming off a loss at Hawaii where Idaho was thumped 45-10. The Vandals record is now 4-4 and will be looking to rebound and knock off a Top-25 team.

THE SKINNY: Nevada earned its rst road win streak beating Fresno State and San Jose State last week. The Wolf Pack plays two games at home this week where it has fared much better. The team is 9-2 at home and 4-9 on the road. However, Nevada played at Idaho and lost 3-1, so the team will look to even the series. The Wolf Packs second game is against Boise State, which Nevada has already played on the road this season, winning 3-1. If the team wins, it will hold a two game lead for the third spot in the WAC.

Running back Mike Ball had 58 yards and two rushing touchdowns against Utah State.

Second-year head coach David Carter took over for former head coach Mark Fox last year. Nevada opens its season Saturday against Seattle Pacic.

Seattle Pacic

7:05 p.m. Saturday

Harrington recorded 23 kills in Nevadas 3-1 win on the road against Fresno State. She also had 13 kills at San Jose State. With her performance, Harrington helped give Nevada its rst road-winning streak, at two games. It also doubled its road wins and is now 4-9 on the road. Her 23 kills is a season high and its the second time this season she has totaled 20 or more kills. Junior Ellie Stott scored both of Nevadas goals against Hawaii on Friday. It was a game in which the Wolf Pack had to win to have a chance at making the Western Athletic Conference tournament. Her second goal came with less than a minute left in the second overtime on an assist from Vanessa Mann. Both of her goals in the game were her rst and second goals of the season and could not have come at a better time. However, since Fresno State tied Boise State, the Wolf Pack is out of the tournament. With Vai Taua out of the game against Utah State with an ankle injury, running back Mike Ball was one of several players to step in and ll the position. Ball stood out and found the end zone three times as the Wolf Pack won 56-42. He rushed for 58 yards and two touchdowns and caught a pass for an 8-yard touchdown. His rushing touchdowns were the rst of the season for him.


THE SKINNY: The Wolf Pack mens basketball team opens its season Saturday in an exhibition game against Seattle Pacic. The team lost four starters from last season, including Luke Babbitt and Armon Johnson, who were selected in the National Basketball Association Draft. The teams only returning starter is junior Dario Hunt. He was named to the WAC All-Defensive team last season and will be called upon to lead a Nevada team with no starting seniors.

David Carters personality perfect for new, young team

f David Carter hides a different, disingenuous personality behind a cheerful demeanor, Ive yet to see it. When Carter took over as the Wolf Pack mens basketball head coach in spring 2009 after Mark Fox left for a multi-million dollar deal at the University of Georgia, everyone said the same thing about Carter: hes a laid-back, players coach. Isnt that what everyone says about the new boss? More than one year into his tenure, though, Carter continues to be that laid-back, players coach. And as the Wolf Pack takes the Emerson court Saturday for Marcus its season opener, my eyes will be focused on Carters handling of this young team as much as they will be focused on the teams new talent. From what Ive seen so far this year in press conferences and at media day, the 2010-11 teams personality ts Carters personality as much as it does his style on the court. Last year, players like Brandon Fields, Armon Johnson and Luke Babbitt all recruits during Foxs tenure led Nevada in Carters high-paced offensive system. Its a different team this year. Its Carters team. Out with Johnson and in with


ELLIE STOTT SOCCER In a must-win game for the Wolf Pack soccer team against Hawaii, junior Ellie Stott stepped up and won the game. She scored the rst goal of the match in the rst half and scored the winning goal in double overtime with less than a minute remaining. The teams tournament hopes perished because of Boise State and Fresno State tying.

It will be a rough trip through the rst season as the young team molds and learns, but Carters success in the next two seasons will prove whether his philosophy works...
Deonte Burton. Say goodbye to Joey Shaw and say hello to Malik Story wow, doesnt that feel good to say? One of the biggest improvements is in the teams leadership department. Instead of Fields as the oldest player to look up to, Nevada has Dario Hunt and Illiwa Baldwin. Hunt is the Air Force brat who leads by example and, according to Baldwin, someone everyone listens to. Baldwin, the 24-year-old Australian transfer, is already getting pegged as the grandpa on the court. Hes the old guy with the accent that Devonte Elliot said drives the players to Wal-mart when they need more food. That kind of approachable leadership is a far cry from the vibes that Fields gave. The 2009-10 team still had lingering effects of Foxs coldness. Fox the same coach that would interrupt his players in interviews and stomp on the court with his shoe harder than the Raiders stomped on the Broncos last week left a culture that wasnt easy to shake. But just last month, players and coaches were laughing with members of the media as Nevadas media day was conducted in a laid-back, cheerful manner. Even during the teams rst press conference last week, players were relaxed and excited to start the season. But it wasnt naive optimism. Burton expressed concern about how he was nding success in his freshman classes much easier than grasping Carters intricate offensive game plan. Carters laid-back, player-friendly style shouldnt be mistaken for weakness from his players. He is still a demanding presence on the team even though he might not stomp his shoes on the court to get their attention. With Carters rst clean slate in 2010, the second-year head coachs philosophy toward his players, on the court and with the media, will be tested. It will be a rough trip through the rst season as the young team molds and learns, but Carters success in the next two seasons will prove whether his philosophy works, or whether Nevada needs another drill sergeant in town.

DOYLE MILLER FOOTBALL Defensive back Doyle Miller and the rest of the Wolf Pack football teams defense shut out Utah State in the rst half but in the second half Miller got burned on several pass plays as the team gave up a season-high 42 points in the second half. Ault said the team will make changes.

Thaveesupsoonthorn led the Nevada swimming and diving team to its rst victory Saturday against Fresno State 157-142. She took rst in two events, which led the team.

The Wolf Pack cross country team nished a disappointing sixth at the WAC championship meet but Diaz cracked the top 10 at number nine and nished ahead of Nevadas other runners. Diaz leads the team in top 10 nishes with three. Her best outing came in the Nevada Twilight Cross Country Classic where she nished second. Diaz also competes in outdoor track and eld. Last year she won gold in the 1500 meter at the WAC outdoor championships.





An inside look at Nevadas road woes this season.

Boom box


Nevada won its last two games beating Fresno State 3-1 and San Jose State 3-2. Scruggs said that music plays an important role for this team in nding its energy. (Music) is more of an environment thing where it kind of relaxes everyone and puts us in a different state of mind where its more being excited than being nervous, freshman Grace Anxo said. This is just one of the elements Scruggs implemented to try to make the team feel more comfortable. Scruggs forces her players to leave their hotel room while on the road to stay loose, as well. We either go to the gym to do a short workout, just to get them moving around or we literally make them get out of the hotel room and they have to go for a walk or they have to go walk around at a mall. They have to physically be moving and not lying (around) watching TV, Scruggs said. Scruggs said some of the players dont like to leave the hotel room and that she sometimes has to make them. I only want to stay in if I have school work to get done and if I dont I just feel kind of antsy and I want to get up and get moving, Anxo said. So its denitely a nice thing that we all have the opportunity to get up and get out of the hotel room otherwise you would be more in a prison, so its nice to get out of it. For Garvey, sitting in the hotel room is not a big deal. Traveling

on the bus or the plane takes more out of her. Its more the traveling thats hard on our body, that wears you out more than sitting around in the hotel, Garvey said. Tatiana Santiago said the team spends about 10 hours waiting around on road trips. We spend more time waiting in airports and traveling than we do practicing and playing, Santiago said. Getting out of the hotel room and making sure the team gets enough sleep are priorities Scruggs and the rest of Nevadas staff have enforced the entire season, but the boom box is something the coaches have really implemented to get more road wins.

The Wolf Pack has a 9-2 record at home. On the road, the team is 4-9. Nevada won two road matches last weekend.
Music certainly is something that can really get the emotions pumping, especially with this team, Scruggs said. They have little dance parties. Nevada has two road matches left before it plays in the Western Athletic Conference Tournament Nov. 22 in Las Vegas.

Nevadas season ends on win

By Lukas Eggen
Heading into the Nevada soccer teams nal match of the season against Hawaii, the team knew it had to win and get help to qualify for the Western Athletic Conference Tournament. With seven seniors playing in their last home match, Nevada beat Hawaii 2-1 in double overtime. The win meant the Wolf Pack ended the season 7-9-3 overall and 2-5-1 in WAC play. At that moment in time, it was all about, This was our game. We executed our game plan and won the game, head coach Missy Price said. Everybody was really happy. The victory turned bittersweet as the game served as a reminder that the team came up short in its goal. Fresno State tied its match against Boise State to clinch the nal spot in the WAC Tournament. Nevadas decline began Oct. 3. The Wolf Pack was coming off a win against New Mexico State and ended a stretch where the team went 5-1-1. Then, things fell apart. The Wolf Pack went on a six-match winless streak, losing ve and tying one. The mark left Nevada at 1-5-1 in conference play heading into its nal match. During the stretch, Nevada scored more than one goal once and failed to score more than two goals during the teams nal 10 games of

He doubled his season rush total, gaining 58 yards on just six carries an average of 9.7 yards per carry. He was running and catching, Taua said. He was doing it all on Saturday.

If its not in the cards to get more touches, Im not complaining. I want to do whatever it takes to help the team win.

We were just hitting the post and hitting the keeper, senior Erin Smith said prior to the teams nal three games. We just couldnt seem to nd the corner of the goals. As the losses piled up, senior Alyx Sacks said the team kept focused and didnt get frustrated.

Price said that despite having to watch the tournament from home instead of competing, she was proud of the way the team played throughout the season.

WAC referee gives insight to working football games

By Cory Thomas
Jim Farmer was one of the ofcials on the eld for the Utah State-Nevada football game Saturday at Mackay Stadium. Like all refs, he has faced major scrutiny this season from fans. In speaking with him the day after the game, Farmer provided insight into what goes into being a referee, such as the work ethic and emotions. Q: How long have you been an ofcial? A: I started in 1973. Q: Why do most ofcials decide to become one? A: We have a passion for football. Most of us probably played football on some level. So, we want to give back and remain part of the game. Q: As an ofcial, how do you prepare for a game? A: On Monday or Tuesday, well meet and watch game lm from the night before. I look at the rule book for about 30 or 40 minutes every day. We get a rule test every week. Another ofcial on the crew gives another test during the week. We arrive at the stadium three hours before the kickoff and we will take another test, talk about philosophies and talk about who is going to cover what plays and what spots each of us will cover. An hour before the game starts we will go out and watch the players practice and about eight minutes before kickoff we will go to the eld for the coin toss. After the game, if possible, we will watch another college football game after our game. Q: You see some ofcials make it on ESPN and other news stations because of a blown call. Do you ever fear of being on TV for that? A: As a crew, we talk about all the plays that could get us in trouble on ESPN or a phone call from a supervisor. Q: What are some of those calls? A: Giving a team too many downs, a missed chop block, if you miss something everyone else in the stadium sees it gives you a sick feeling in your stomach, letting a team start without the other team being ready, allowing a hideout player (a player that stands near the sideline trying to sneak into the play) and not catching it and not calling a penalty and missing a late hit. Q: How has instant replay helped and do most ofcials like it? A: Instant replay helps correct some of those calls and when a call is reversed, were glad to get it right. Some traditionalists took a while to warm to it at rst but replay has come a long ways. Q: What is the worst thing a fan can say to you? A: The worst thing a fan can say is that you made a mistake and you did. Q: Do you remember a certain call you wish you could have back? A: No, you have to move on. As much as it pains to make a mistake, if you dont move on youll make the same mistake again or you wont have the courage to make that call.

Ji Jim farmer f became b an off cial in 1973. Farmer said a play that could embarrass an ofcial on national television is giving a team more than four downs on a possession. Fans chanting insults does not affect Farmer. An ofcials goal is to get a postseason assignment.

Q: Is there anything worse a fan can do? A: The absolute worst thing is if someone gets physical but every WAC team does a great job with security. Q: Do you have a goal for the season? A: We shoot for a postseason assignment. Thats one of our goals, but it doesnt happen every year just like a team doesnt make a Super Bowl every year.

Defense falters in 2nd half

By Cory Thomas
The Wolf Pack defeated Utah State on Saturday 56-42, but the score wasnt what the team hoped for. Nevadas defense shut out Utah States offense in the rst half, holding the Aggies without a third down conversion before collapsing in the second half. said the defense did not play 100 percent in the second half. We might have let up a little bit, Miller said. We were in position to make the plays, but we just didnt make them. Miller was a big part of the defenses second-half collapse as the Aggies threw at him more in the second half. Ault said that changes in personnel and play-calling could happen this week. Kaepernick ran for a 59-yard touchdown and he threw a 55-yard pass to Rishard Matthews. Mike Ball ran for a 35-yard touchdown and running back Nick Hale scored his rst-career touchdown on a 20-yard pass.


Although Kaepernick played a big part in the Wolf Packs win, junior Tyler Lantrip saw a signicant amount of playing time. On Lantrips second play, he ran the ball for a 13-yard touchdown. He nished the game with 35 yards rushing and a touchdown. Ault wanted Kaepernick to take a moment and study what the Aggie defense was doing. I wasnt seeing everything I should have been, Kaepernick said. As a quarterback, its sometimes good to get a chance to step back and see what the defense is throwing at you.

In the rst half, the Nevada defense held the Aggies to 98 yards of total offense as the Wolf Pack took a 35-0 lead into halftime. However, in the second half the Nevada defense allowed 392 total yards and 42 points. Defensively speaking, I cant think of another time in my career here that Ive seen a group play a worse half of football than our group played in the second half, head coach Chris Ault said. Im really disappointed. There are no excuses for the way they played. Defensive back Doyle Miller

The Wolf Pack and Utah State had some big plays, making what was a blowout at halftime a shootout in the end. Four of the Aggies plays totaled more than 20 yards in the second half. Quarterback Diondre Borel threw for 399 yards. He completed passes for 63, 27, 35 and 25 yards. The Aggies other big play came on a 92-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Kerwynn Williams. Nevada had four big plays in the game. Quarterback Colin

Nevada defeated San Francisco State 75-45 in the teams only exhibition game of the season.


Pack rolls in exhibition

By Jacob Ward
In the rst game of the season the womens basketball team put on a strong showing against San Francisco State University. Though it was only an exhibition game, head coach Jane Albright was impressed with the way her team played. I would pay to see this team play, because theyre fun to watch, Albright said after her teams 75-45 win. The team is who I thought they were. I felt like weve showcased who we want to become. Albright worked to get in as many players as possible as the Wolf Pack dominated the game, holding San Francisco State to 27.8 percent shooting. Our defense played well, especially in the rst half, Albright said. Nevada also forced 32 turnovers, which led to 31 points. However, the offense lagged, Albright said. For the game, Nevada shot 34.4 percent from the eld, but only 27 percent in the second half. Nevada used a 30-16 run over the nal 13 minutes of the rst half to pull away from San Francisco State and lead 42-21. The eld struggles was on the coaches, and the opening game wont be like that, Albright said. Part of it was we were trying to get everyone in, so no one had long enough to really nd their comfort zone. Albright said she was impressed with the play of forwards Marissa Hammond and Kate Kevorken. Hammond was perfect from the eld, going 3-of-3 and 6-of-6 at the free throw line. Kevorken was also one of the top scorers, going 4-of-9 from the eld and 1-of-2 from the line. Senior guard Tahnee Robinson struggled from the eld, going 3-of-10. She went a perfect 8-of-8 from the line. Every player logged at least 11 minutes during the game, a statistic Johnna Ward said shows how deep Nevadas roster is. I think its the coaches who have their work cut out for them, Ward said. Clearly we have a lot of talent and I think we showcased that tonight. One of the few downsides was the foul trouble forwards

Francisco State to 27.8 percent shooting. Forward Marissa Hammond shot 3-of-3 from the eld and 6-of-6 from the free throw line. Nevada shot 34.4 percent. The team opens its regular season at home Nov. 12 against Cal Poly, Pomona.
Th The W Wolf lf P Pack kh held ld S San



Shavon Moore and Kayla Williams found themselves in. Both players fouled out within a minute during the second half. Its hard to stay out of foul trouble when youre as aggressive as we are, Albright said. We just need to be more disciplined and have a stronger mentality. She also talked about playing a smaller lineup and she stressed playing hard all year. Nevada opens its regular season Nov. 12 against Cal Poly, Pomona.

going to play. If the game is moved to a different day, the home school receives $75,000. The road team does not receive anything. According to Hackett, ESPN has to give the school 12-day notice before changing a kickoff time. ESPN moved ve of the Wolf Packs kickoff times this season. Hackett said he did not immediately know the specics of the WACs deal with ESPN, but he said the contract is a doubleedged sword. To be honest, we didnt think (ESPN) would pick up our game against Utah State, Hackett said. It gave people the hard choice of choosing between the game and doing Halloween stuff. But theres a lot of exposure in it for us. It heightens the exposure of the University of Nevada and shows that ESPN likes us. Wolf Pack football head coach Chris Ault said he doesnt like playing night games because it makes the day longer and said

that, many times, the change in kickoff times is not welcome. You know, not many coaches are in favor of them running it but thats the game, Ault said. Its all conference-oriented and all about money. Many students and Nevada fans also complained about the change in the kickoff time against Utah State. While the Wolf Pack has consistently drawn big crowds this season, averaging 22,464 fans in its four home games prior to Saturday, the announced crowd was barely more than half of that total. In addition, the Wolf Pack student section, which has regularly been packed this season, appeared about 60 percent lled. By the end of the game, it was essentially empty. Hackett said that if the game was left at its original 1:05 p.m. kickoff, he bets we have 18,000 or 19,000 people here. University of Nevada, Reno student Jeff Iddings, who attended each of the teams prior four home games, said he did not attend Saturdays game specically because of the change in kickoff time.

Plus, it was really cold, said the 20-year-old mechanical engineering major. Since its so late, after the game, Im just dead-tired. This was a bad move, especially on Halloween weekend. I ended up going to a party. I dont know anyone who went to the game. Iddings added that he did not like that the team has not had a Saturday afternoon game so far this season. He said late kickoffs make attending the games a hassle because people have to choose between other events. Most of the time, Saturday night is the last night (of the weekend), he said. Most people dont want to spend their whole night being cold at a football game. If they had them in the afternoon, people will come because they most likely dont have anything else to do in the day. Despite the drop in attendance and subsequent loss in revenue from concessions, Hackett said the athletics department has not tracked the loss in revenue when moving kickoff to a later time.

Idaho quarterback Nathan Enderle was as one of the major reasons for the Vandals als s turnaround in 2009. Enderle completed ed 61 percent of his passes, throwing for 22 22 touchdowns and just nine interceptions. ns. ns . This season hasnt been as kind. Enderle der erl le eh has as a s thrown 16 touchdowns already, but also so o has has a 12 12 interceptions. Enderles favorite target has been Daniel a ie an iel Hardy, who leads the team in receptions ns with 32, but defenses must be wary of sophomore receiver Justin Veltung. Although he has just 19 receptions a and nd d started two games, Veltung averages 19.9 yards per catch leads the team with th seven touchdown receptions. Sixty percent of Idahos offensive plays have been passes and the Vandals ls ls reliance on the pass game has come in n part, due to the teams ineffectiveness on o the ground. Running backs Deonte Jackson and Princeton McCarty were expected to be effective as a one-two tandem in the backeld after averaging ng more than 120 yards per game last season. Instead, ad, the duo has been held to a combined ve touchdowns chdowns as neither player has been able to have a breakout game. With teams forcing the Vandals to be one-sided, Enderle must limit the interceptions or erc rce ep eptions Nevada could run away with the game e early.

Nevada at Idaho

Although the Vandals have a 4-4 record ord on the our wins season, it is very misleading. Idahos four came against North Dakota State, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Western Michigan an and New Mexico State teams with a combined ed d record of 11-21. In Idahos four losses, all to teams with winning ith wi w nning records, Enderle has struggled, throwing eight ng e ight interceptions. Idahos defense isnt helping either. In each of the teams losses, the Vandals dals allowed at least 36 points. Idahos rush h defense e ranks sixth in the WAC, giving up 165 yards per game. Facing the nations fth-best st rush offense 300.88 yards per game Idaho daho will have its work cut out. A big factor in Idahos success in stopping pping the run will be senior defensive end Aaron aron ar Lavarias who leads the Vandals with 11 1 tackles for loss. If he cant penetrate Nevadas evadas backeld the Wolf Pack will likely have e its way on the ground. Idaho has yet to beat a Football Championmpionship Subdivision opponent with a winning ning record, proving that the Vandals success ss may have more to due with its shabby opponents onents than the quality of its play.

Nathan Enderle vs. vs Wolf Pack secondary

Quarterback Nathan Enderle throws the ball on more than 60 percent of Idahos plays. Enderle will be looking to have similar success that Utah State had in moving the ball through the air and exposing Nevadas secondary.

Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick



OPTIMIST SAYS: The Wolf Packs defensive breakdown against Utah State was due more to lack of focus than any major problems. With the offense rolling, the Vandals defense is helpless to stop the Wolf Pack offense as Nevada gains more than 200 yards on the ground and 500 yards of total offense. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has a big day and scores four touchdowns as Nevada dominates every aspect of the game. OUTCOME: Nevada wins 63-10 PESSIMIST SAYS: Nevadas horrendous effort on defense against Utah State in the second half means one thing the return of the Wolf Packs terrible secondary. Idaho quarterback Nathan Enderle carves up the Wolf Pack secondary and the Idaho defense does just enough to contain Kaepernick. The game becomes a shootout with the Vandals winning late in the game as Nevada suffers its second loss of the year. OUTCOME: Idaho wins 45-35


ing Idahos offense is dependent on quarterback Nathan Enderles passing performance. But to beat the Wolf Pack, the Vandals cant be one ay a big dimensional. Running back Princeton McCarty must step up and play xpected role within the offense for Idaho to have a chance. Big things were expected n. Now, from McCarty, but a broken nger set him back earlier in the season. ies so McCarty and running back Deonte Jackson have been splitting carries far this season, but Idaho will need one of them to have a breakout game. If vadas McCarty can run against the Wolf Pack defense, Idaho can keep Nevadas r offense off the eld and control the clock, giving the Wolf Pack fewer chances to score. Idaho doesnt have the offensive re power to go score for score with Nevada. If the run game can control the clock, the PHOTO COURTESY OF IDAHO MEDIA SERVICES Vandals may have just enough to get past Nevada. Idaho running back Princeton McCarty
