Te White House launched
Its On Us last Friday, a na-
tional public awareness and
education campaign designed
to shif the way people think
about sexual assault. Te pro-
gram aims to inspire people to
see it as their responsibility to
take preventative action be-
fore sexual assaults occur.
Te campaign is partnering
with student leadership at over
200 colleges and universities,
collegiate sports organizations
such as the NCAA, individual
athletic conferences such as
the Big 12, Big Ten, and Pac-12
and a diverse range of private
corporations and celebrities.
As of Sept. 24, the pledge was
not signed by Student Senate.
As far as weve come, the fact
is that from sports leagues to
pop culture to politics, our so-
ciety still does not sufciently
value women, said President
Obama in a speech discussing
the launch of the new cam-
paign on Monday. We still
dont condemn sexual assault
as loudly as we should. We
make excuses. We look the
other way. Te message that
sends can have a chilling efect
on our young women.
Te campaign addresses one
of the areas highlighted as a
key issue by the White House
Task Force to Protect Students
from Sexual Assault: prevent-
ing sexual assault and engag-
ing men in the conversation.
Some members of the Uni-
versity, like doctoral student
Phil Wagner, see encouraging
signs from the men on cam-
Its really encouraging to
me, on our own campus, to
see men working with women,
and men working across many
lines to combat sexual violence
on campus, said Wagner, one
of the Emily Taylor Center for
Women and Gender Equitys
2014 Men of Merit.
If youve been to any of the
meetings related to whats go-
ing on here on our campus,
youll see a lot of male faces
in those crowds, and I dont
think thats something thats
always been true with these
issues, Wagner said.
Te Its On Us campaign
calls on men in particular to
step in if they see a situation
where sexual assault seems
likely to occur, and charges
men with the responsibility
of setting the right tone when
talking about women.
It is on all of us to reject the
quiet tolerance of sexual as-
sault and to refuse to accept
whats unacceptable. And we
especially need our young men
to show women the respect
they deserve, and to recognize
sexual assault, and to do their
part to stop it, Obama said. It
is your responsibility to set the
right tone when youre talking
about women, even when
women arent around, maybe
especially when theyre not
Te White House adminis-
tration emphasizes the need
for people to intervene when
it comes to sexual assault on
college campuses.
Still today, one in fve wom-
en will be sexually assaulted
while in college, and research
shows that bystander interven-
tion can be an efective way of
stopping sexual assault before
it happens, said Tina Tchen,
assistant to the president and
chief of staf to the frst lady,
during a conference call with
the press. Bystanders play a
key role in preventing and dis-
couraging and/or intervening
when an act of violence has
the potential to occur.
Dante Mesa, a senior from
Garden City, said changes will
come when men stop being
comfortable being bystanders
and get over the fear of being
in the minority when speaking
up about sexist behavior.
Its not saying Oh, because
Im not doing it, it doesnt af-
fect me, because being passive
about it means that youre a
part of it and youre perpetu-
ating that culture, Mesa said.
Rachel Bullock, a senior
from Overland Park, said
viewing situations with the
potential for sexual assault to
occur as an opportunity to do
the right thing may be dif-
cult, but its something that
men need to do.
I think the most import-
ant attributes for men are
open-mindedness, curiosity
and understanding, Bullock
said. I think a really good
place to start on the individual
level is having the courage to
look inward and see the privi-
lege that comes in our society
from just being a male.

Couple sues state for marriage rights
Two former University stu-
dents are returning to Law-
rence Tursday night to share
their story as a same-sex
married couple and to rally
support for the LGBTQ com-
munity in Kansas.
Charles Dedmon and Mi-
chael Nelson have been
married since Nov. 17, 2013.
Tey were married in Cal-
ifornia, but live in Kansas
where gay marriage is not
recognized. Tey have fled
a lawsuit against the Kansas
Department of Revenue in
hopes that they will soon be
able to fle their taxes as a
married couple.
We believe that Kansas
needs a progressive voice and
this is the way we can most
authentically contribute,
Nelson said.
Tey are pursuing the right
to fle their taxes together be-
cause it could serve as a frst
step towards marriage equal-
ity. If they win the lawsuit, it
could open the door for re-
solving other marriage equal-
ity issues.
Te couple realizes that they
could have more marriage
rights in other states such as
California, but Dedmon and
Nelson choose to remain in
Kansas because their roots
are here and they want to see
marriage equality move for-
ward in this state.
Teir story goes back to Jan-
uary 1974, when they met at
Murphy Hall.
Tey were both in a stage-
craf class and were making
a set for Te Playboy of the
Western World. Nelson re-
members that Dedmon was
painting stage pieces fat
black while he was priming
them. Tey had a few other
classes together and start-
ed talking and developed a
I had no clue that I was
gay, Nelson said.
Tey became roommates
and shared a house with
two others, one of them be-
ing Nelsons girlfriend at the
It was an odd arrange-
ment, he said.
But as time went on, Nel-
son and Dedmons friend-
ship continued to grow. Tey
would stay up late talking
about everything, and gradu-
ally those talks went later and
later into the night as they
shared their thoughts and be-
came closer.
Lo and behold, afer a year
of talking, things started to
move into another direction
and then, bam! Tere I was,
in love, Nelson said.
He said that during the
1970s, the gay rights move-
ment was just beginning and
they werent out with their
relationship. Both he and
Dedmon said that police still
raided bars in Kansas City
and would take people to jail
for being gay, so they had
to be careful and stay quiet
about it.
It was just something you
didnt even think about, Nel-
son said.
Te couple spent some time
apart when Dedmon married
a woman in 1977.
It was a tempestuous de-
cade... He got married, I ran
away to California, Nelson
But they found their way
back to each other. Te cou-
ple moved to Oklahoma,
and from that point on, they
shared a joint bank account
and considered everything
else to be theirs.

It was a tempestuous
decade... He got married, I
ran away to California.

Social equity director
bill sent back to Rights
In the weekly meeting, Student
Senate decided to push the bill to
create and fund a Social Equity Di-
rector position back to the Rights
Committee at the urging of Student
Body President Morgan Said. It was
the rst full-cycle meeting since
switching from interim senate last
Initially, it appeared that the vote
failed last week in Rights Com-
mittee, but later that night Said
said she, along with Student Body
Vice President Miranda Wagner
and Chief of Staff Mitchell Cota,
checked the vote and discovered it
had been counted incorrectly. The
vote had actually passed by an
exact two-thirds majority, but be-
cause of the confusion, Said said
she wanted to bring it back to the
committee to hold a revote to clarify
the situation.
We have on record that it did
pass with a two-thirds vote, but
because it was announced as a fail
in the committee, we just want to
make sure were being as transpar-
ent as possible with our committee
members, our senators and the stu-
dent body at large, Said said.
The senate also voted on legis-
lation that would redene the de-
velopment director position within
Student Senate executive staff that
was presented by current Develop-
ment Director Zach George. George
said that the position has only been
around for ve years and tends to
change with each administration.
The positions main priority will now
be platform execution. The develop-
ment director used to also work with
senate alumni outreach as well.
Will Admussen, government rela-
tions director, is currently working
on voter registration and the sen-
ators will table on campus during
Civic Engagement Week at the Uni-
versity starting Sept. 30.

Improvements mean upgraded education
Capital improvements to
the University next year will
mean better facilities and op-
portunities for undergraduate
Earlier this month, a leg-
islative panel endorsed the
Universitys budget requests
for next year. Te $92 million
budget will pay for new facil-
ities and updates in the Uni-
versitys next fscal year, which
starts in July 2015. Te budget
includes updates to under-
graduate buildings like Sum-
merfeld Hall and money for
the new Daisy Hill residence
New facilities could mean
more prominence and pres-
tige, said Lindsey Douglas,
director of state relations for
the University. While many
current students will graduate
before projects are done, she
said the improvements will
enhance the value of their ed-
If we are raising the prom-
inence of the University,
raising the reputation of the
University, we are making
better the value of the degrees
of the students that graduate
in 10 years and the students
who graduated two years ago,
Douglas said.
Projects like the new en-
gineering building on 15th
Street not only raise the stat-
ure of the University, but help
the state. Tim Caboni, vice
chancellor for Public Afairs,
said the engineering building
was built because the state of
Kansas had a need for more
qualifed engineers.
One of the great things
universities can do is address
state and economic needs of
the state, Caboni said.
In addition to the improve-
ments in this years request,
the University is currently
planning for an addition to
Lindley Hall, new feldhouse
apartments and a new busi-
ness school. Caboni said the
projects, which resulted from
the Universitys strategic plan,
Bold Aspirations, could also
build the Universitys research
portfolio and provide more
opportunities for undergrad-
uate and graduate students.
Caboni said research is an es-
sential part of the undergrad-
uate experience.
While young undergradu-
ates may not have a career in
research ahead of them, all
of those skills are applicable
to sales, marketing, teach-
ing, social work just about
any career one can imagine,
someone could beneft from
undergraduate research, Ca-
boni said.
Te Universitys capital im-
provements request included
electrical maintenance, partial
remodeling of Summerfeld
Hall, renovation of Corbin
Hall and parking projects.
Te largest portion will be set
aside for the new residence
hall on Daisy Hill.
At the start of the Kansas
legislatures session in January,
the governor will announce
his budget recommendations,
the legislature will hear pre-
sentations from universities
and the legislature will pass
fnal budget bills to be signed
by the governor.

Small acts of kindness can have huge effects
By Anissa Fritz

I want pizza. And Chinese food. And a doughnut.

ast week, as I sat
down in one of
my usual Tuesday/
Thursday classes,
something out of the
ordinary occurred. Our
professor was late to class,
which isnt a big deal in
most classes, but we have
a disabled student who
requires help from the
professor to set up his
desk in the front.
As the students came in
and found the desk was
not ready for this student,
we were in an awkward
and uncomfortable
position, we knew the
student was not able
to arrange his desk by
himself. This didnt
happen in the back of
class where no one can
see what was happening;
this happened in the front
of the room, visible to
As I looked at the
student in need of a desk
and the students who
had already sat down in
theirs, I realized everyone
was aware of the issue
but did nothing about
it including myself.
Eventually a young man
in our class had gotten up
out of his seat and walked
down to the front, pulling
out a desk for the student
in the wheelchair.
Ever since that day,
someone will almost
immediately arrange a
desk for this particular
student when before, the
professor would have to
make the arrangements.
Because of that one
student, people have
started to help out
someone who couldnt do
something for themselves.
The point is, never think
your acts of kindness are
wasted on jerks, or go
unnoticed. The world has
a lot of rude and bitter
people, but the world also
has people who watch and
recognize good acts when
they see them being done.
Who knows, maybe next
time you do something
nice for someone else,
youll have an article
written about you in the

Students VS. Professors
by Jake Kaufmann
College courses should teach more than academics
By Adam Timmerman
ts easy to say a
person can learn
quite a bit in college.
In almost any type of
field of study, a student
can greatly enhance
their knowledge about
that particular subject,
whether it relates to
calculus, biology or
economics. Thats the
point of college to grow
in a wide range of subjects
and to be the best,
well-rounded student as
possible, while having
the ability to become
specialized in a specific
subject. That is good,
but while youre being
prepared for a career,
theres one thing college
is neglecting to teach you
and thats how to deal
with everyday issues.
How many college
students know how to
change the oil in their
car, or the spark plugs,
or even know how to
jump their cars when the
battery is dead? I bet there
arent many (outside of
mechanical engineers)
who can do these tasks by
themselves. Most people
rely solely on AAA or
dealerships to fix their
problems, which costs
money and time.
How many of you can
balance a checkbook, set
up a mortgage or even
sew a button back onto
a shirt? With online
banking, tailors and
reliance on parents, these
everyday skills are being
lost among Millennials.
Even little things
seem to be unknown to
college kids during and
after school, like how
to do laundry properly
or how to cook and eat
healthier. Its great that
students know how to
find the second derivative,
read DNA and how to
trace the roots of the
environmental movement,
but students need to know
basic survival skills for
when college is over and
they become part of the
real world.
Lets be honest, unless
your job requires it,
what skill is the average
student going to use
more being able to sew
a button or being able to
find the second and third
derivative? I recommend
the University require
students to take one
course on how to learn
these skills. Students
should be knowledgeable
in both academics and
life skills, creating a real,
well-rounded student.

Student wins national book collecting contest
Katya Soll has had a passion
for Spanish and Latin Amer-
ican theater since she was in
middle school. Soll, a grad-
uate student from St. Louis,
materialized her passion into
a collection of more than 100
books and programs from
plays she saw personally. She
not only entered her collec-
tion into the National Colle-
giate Book Collecting Con-
test, but she also won.
Soll said it started with a KU
competition called the Sny-
der Book Collecting Contest.
Te Snyder is a competition
through KU Libraries for
people who have built up a
collection of books and other
materials on a specifc topic.
Soll won the competition
with her impressive collection
of books and programs relat-
ed to Latin American theater.
Afer winning the Snyder
Book Collecting Competi-
tion, Soll was eligible for the
national contest through the
Antiquarian Booksellers As-
sociation of America and the
Library of Congress.
I fgured why not, I al-
ready did the work, lets go
ahead and submit it, Soll
said. Tat was back in the
spring, and then they got in
touch with me in August to
tell me that I won.
When Soll found out she
won the national contest,
she was completely stunned.
She said she hadnt expected
to win anything, so she was
pleasantly surprised. Te na-
tional contest awarded her
with a $2,500 prize, as well as
a $1,000 prize for KU Librar-
LeAnn Meyer, communica-
tions coordinator for KU Li-
braries, said she was glad Soll
won the national contest.
It was defnitely exciting for
KU Libraries, as well as the
University as a whole, Mey-
er said. Her winning goes to
raise the profle of the Univer-
sitys libraries, as well as speak
for the prestige of the Snyder
competition itself.
Soll always had an interest
in collecting, but didnt pick
up most of the materials in
her collection until her trip
to South America last sum-
mer, which included stops in
Argentina and Chile. While
there, she said she browsed
bookstores, collected pro-
grams from the nearly 60
plays she saw and stufed all
she could ft in her suitcase.
Tere was a limit for the
Snyder competition, Soll
said. You could only show
a maximum of 50 items, and
that was really cutting it down
for me. I probably have at
least twice that much in my
overall collection.
Te art of Spanish and Latin
American theater is a special-
ized feld, Soll said. In the U.S.,
acquiring books about Argen-
tinean theater is difcult and
can be expensive. While Soll
was in South America, she
knew she needed to pick up as
many materials as she could
to build her collection.
Soll began taking Spanish
classes in middle school and
immediately fell in love with
the language.
I was going through a
phase where I refused to take
anything that my older sister
had taken, so by default I end-
ed up with Spanish, and then
I just fell in love with it and
kept going, Soll said.
Soll currently teaches el-
ementary Spanish at the
University and hopes to in-
spire her students the way
her classes inspired her. She
received her undergraduate
degree double majoring in
theater and Spanish.
For her, the theater major
was more important because
she knew that was something
she wanted to do for the rest
of her life. She said Spanish
was just something she en-
joyed and continued to take.
I would notice in my the-
ater classes we barely talked
at all about Spanish and Latin
American plays, Soll said. I
think our textbook for theater
history had one paragraph on
Latin America, and mean-
while I was taking a course
where I was reading two plays
a week and they were amaz-
ing, so I got really interested
in translation and translating
She said she then began
reading more Latin American
plays, which sparked a fasci-
nation with helping other
English speakers learn about
them as well.
Once Soll realized she could
combine her love for Spanish
and theater, she decided she
wanted to learn more about
Spanish and Latin American
theatre and decided to attend
graduate school for Spanish.
I love discovering a new au-
thor or a new play, Soll said.
Not only does it expand my
understanding of theater and
theatrical culture in these
countries, but they are in-
credible and insightful works
of art and literature as well.

Sophomore Savannah Zielinski models on Massachusetts Street. Zielinski
has returned to modeling after a seven-year absence and will walk for
three different designers during Kansas City Fashion Week.
Sophomore Savannah Zie-
linski was in seventh grade
when she met with a New
York modeling agent and was
told she needed to lose 10
Its defnitely hard to be re-
silient when someone looks
at you and says, youre not
skinny enough when I was
perfectly healthy, Zielinski
said. I took that and realized
its not worth it.
So she stepped out of the
modeling world.
Zielinski attended the Uni-
versity in 2012 before moving
to Princeton, N.J., for a year
with her boyfriend. Zielinski
returned to the University
this fall to study music edu-
cation and, afer being out of
the game for seven years, she
also returned to modeling.
Zielinski said she felt her ca-
reer would be more success-
ful now that she was older.
Most recently, she tagged
along with a friend to audi-
tion for Kansas City Fashion
Tat friend was McCartney
Payton of Kansas City, Mo.
Payton has participated in
Fashion Week before and in-
vited Zielinski to auditions.
I told her this would be a
great opportunity for her be-
cause she just recently moved
back to Kansas City and she
wanted to get back into it,
Payton said.
Zielinski and Payton are
walking for multiple design-
ers, starting this Friday. Both
will walk together for Little
Shell Designs and Meredith
Lockhart, both of which Zie-
linski met through her recent
work getting back into the
modeling world.
Once I was chosen to walk
for [the designers] I was so
excited, she said. Its a huge
event and its another place to
network and fnd more peo-
ple to work with and more
Te benefts of networking
and learning from experience
come with a few sacrifces
as well that Zielinski has to
make as a student. As a mod-
el, she is unpaid for her con-
tribution to the shows.
I live in Lawrence so driv-
ing to Kansas City defnitely
makes it more costly because
I am paying for gas every
time, Zielinski said. I am
walking for three diferent
designers so Im going to be
driving to Kansas City three
times in one weekend. I am
one of those stereotypical
broke college students.
However, Zielinski said she
is okay with the fact she will
have to make sacrifces be-
cause Fashion Week is such
an important event.
Its really important, es-
pecially for the Kansas City
designers, Zielinski said. To
make an established event
that the designers of Kansas
City can go to and show of
and make noise about their
designs. Tats important.
From a modeling aspect, its
important to be seen and to
be doing big events.
Although Zielinski said
Fashion Week is a great place
to network for jobs, she also
said the experience is bene-
Something always hap-
pens, she said. Ive been in
a fashion show where a girl
almost fell of the stage. Ive
been in a fashion show where
I actually tripped. Its difer-
ent practicing and doing your
rehearsals. When everyone is
watching things will happen
out of nerves.
Zielinski said she is most
excited to work with Althea
Harper because she has not
seen Harpers entire collec-
tion yet. Payton is also ex-
cited to work with designers
and showcase their styles on
the runway.
Walking down the runway
is honestly so exhilarating,
theres so much adrenaline,
Payton said. Its so quick but
it feels like forever.
In stark contrast to her sev-
enth grade experience with a
harsh critic, Zielinski said be-
ing on stage gives her a sense
of strength and confdence.
Its very empowering. No
matter how insecure you may
be in real life, when you get
on the stage you are a model,
she said. You are confdent
and for all intents and pur-
poses you are a blank canvas.
You get to be this awesome
confdent person whether
thats in your normal day-to-
day persona or if its not who
you really are. When you get
on that stage, its who you

News from the U
Fitness Kitchen strives to help
others lead healthy lifestyles
You cant look at ftness
without looking at nutrition,
said Ryan Heyer, personal
ftness trainer and owner of
new Lawrence business Fit-
ness Kitchen. According to
its Facebook page, Fitness
Kitchen provides healthy
food options already pre-
pared, packaged and waiting
for you to pick up, take home
and enjoy.
Co-owner of Fitness Kitch-
en Rebecca Eller said Fitness
Kitchen is like fast food, but
really good for you.
Fitness Kitchen was orig-
inally set up to help supply
food to some of my clients,
and then my partner and I
discussed further to expand
this into a business, Heyer
said. He said this includes
preparing what they dub
Fitkits and meals for peo-
ple to eat properly when they
dont have time to cook.
Currently, Fitness Kitchen
doesnt have a physical loca-
tion in Lawrence, but is leas-
ing a kitchen instead. Heyer
said theyve found several lo-
cations that the two are inter-
ested in, but are looking for
somewhere with a kitchen
that has enough square feet
to put the gym in also.
Although it doesnt have
their frst location estab-
lished yet, Fitness Kitchen is
technically open now. Heyer
encourages anyone interest-
ed in starting with Fitness
Kitchen to call (785) 727-
5893 or to visit ftnesskitch- to request more infor-
Heyer said Fitness Kitchen
ofers turkey burgers, bufalo
burgers, salads and pizza, as
well as unique ftness-orien-
tated food, such as a bufn.
Eller said that a bufn is a
soy-free, wheat-free and lac-
tose-free mufn with protein
powder and organic berries
in it.
Te biggest thing that we
are doing for the community
is we are trying to supply all
of our ingredients from local
suppliers, we dont want to
go outward, Heyer said. Fit-
ness Kitchen also only uses
ingredients that are safe on
the body, which means they
dont put any preservatives or
GMOs in the food; its all or-
ganic and gluten free.
Te driving inspiration be-
hind Fitness Kitchen is that
Heyer realized he needed to
change the food system. He
said having Eller come along
and have the ability to cook
really well inspired him to
look further into getting his
clients better food too.
We both feel that at least
our one purpose on earth
now is to help change the
food system, Heyer said. It
is going to be difcult, but
were going to help change
it, were going to help inspire
people to eat healthy and still
have a good taste in food.
It felt like this is what we
should be doing, this is a call-
ing for us, Eller said
Eller and Heyer said the
business will soon have prod-
uct in various cofee shops
and stands around Lawrence
for people who are interest-
ed in Fitness Kitchen. When
they do get their frst location
in Lawrence setup though,
the two say they will be ec-
static. Tey plan to expand
into Oklahoma and Colorado
as well and have a long-term
goal of trying to place a fran-
chise in every major college
town in the United States.
Fitness Kitchen has a
unique way of getting set up
with new clients. Heyer said
they like to set up a personal
meeting frst because food is
a very personal thing for peo-
ple and that a lot of people
are in denial of the current
food system. He said they
bring their clients in for two
free initial sessions to discuss
things such as their diet plan,
ftness plan and overall goals.
It does work if they set
their mind to it and believe
in the program, Heyer said.
People are never going to get
the body of their dreams un-
til they add the diet part of it
to ftness. When you look at
a food package, its not whats
on the front, back or side. Its
what the ingredients are.
Fitness Kitchens mission
is rooted in personal experi-
ence. Heyer said that while
growing up, a big inspiration
was being around the sports
scene. He said he was in-
volved in football, basketball,
baseball and even had a twin
brother he was very com-
petitive with. Heyer said his
football coach was the frst
person who encouraged him
to lif weights and eventually
pushed Heyer into personal
He knew itd be a good ft
for me, because I love weight
lifing, I loved helping people
and its a good fexible job to
get through college, Heyer
Heyer took several classes
at Kansas before leaving to
take a yearlong program for
personal training. Once he
returned to college, he found
a job in personal training and
from there his options rapid-
ly expanded.
As soon as I got into the
ftness world, I never looked
back, Heyer said. I didnt
get my degree, and as I went
into ftness, they promoted
me and I started getting re-
ally good clients, and it went
from there.
Working as a personal
trainer also led Heyer to meet
Eller. I remember when I
frst joined the gym where he
was working, Eller said. I
had no idea how to use any
of the machines or anything
in the gym. She said one
day while walking with the
manager, they passed Heyer
in the hall, and the manag-
er asked Heyer if hed like to
train Eller. Eller said, Ryan
literally gave me this look
up and down, and hes like,
yeah, I can do something
with this. She said as time
went on Heyer inspired her
to do better, and take better
care of herself, as well as to
eat better.
Heyer said thats when the
idea of Fitness Kitchen came
to life. Heyer said before they
had the idea for the business,
Eller was making his food for
personal training.
I said instead of paying me,
why dont you make my food?
I didnt have time to prepare
my food because I was busy
training all the time, Heyer
Heyer said that ofen times
he would have clients so early
he would sleep on the foor in
the gym with a bunch of yoga
mats, and be woken up by the
front desk attendants.
My clients were doing bet-
ter than I was because they
were listening to my advice of
working out and eating prop-
erly and I was just working
out and under eating all the
time, Heyer said. Afer Eller
began making his food, Hey-
er said it was amazing, and
said, We could just do this
for all my clients.
Eller said in addition to
making his meals, Heyer
would help her to fgure out
what to eat before and afer
her workout. I always felt
like, gosh why isnt there a
restaurant where I could just
swing by and pick up my
workout stuf? she said. So,
why cant we do this?
So they did.

When Bill Nighy was a
young actor at the National
Teatre in London, older gay
cast members would talk to
him about the countrys harsh
policies, which forced them
to stay in the closet.
Being gay, recalled the
rangy 64-year-old British
actor, just stopped being an
imprisonable ofense in my
lifetime. Tey could get seven
years for any public display of
afection. One of the things I
dont understand is why (the
government) should feel they
should get involved in any-
body elses sex life.
Even when the fear of im-
prisonment ended, the dis-
crimination didnt. It was
only 30 years ago that a na-
tional newspaper in England
could describe the gay com-
munity as the slime of society
and no one commented, said
Nighy, who became a favorite
with American audiences in
such flms as Love Actually
and Te Best Exotic Mari-
gold Hotel.
He spoke earlier this month
from Toronto where his latest
movie, Pride, was screen-
ing at the flm festival. In the
true-life drama, which opens
Friday, Nighy plays Clif, a
gay, shy former miner who
has kept his sexual orienta-
tion a secret out of fear that
coming out will leave his life
in shambles.
Set during the yearlong na-
tional miners strike in 1984,
Pride revolves around the
birth of the Lesbians & Gays
Support the Miners move-
ment and how these activists
help the mining community
of Onllwyn in South Wales.
Tough many of the union
members and townspeople
are initially antagonistic to
the group, Clif and several of
the women in the town, led
by Imelda Stauntons spirited
Hefna, warmly embrace the
Tirty years ago, according
to Nighy, the miners were
being treated as badly as the
gay and lesbian community.
Te miners strike was for
the most part misrepresented
at the time, he said.
Its beyond refreshing to
get a movie that treats these
decent men and women
who worked in the mining
community with dignity and
respect, said Nighy, who
comes from working-class
roots. Tey were being beat-
en up by the policeand being
invented as enemies of the
Te conservative govern-
ment,led by Prime Minister
Margaret Tatcher,Nighy
added, wanted to crush the
trade union movement and
they started with the miners
because they were the stron-
If it wasnt for Nighy and
Staunton, Pride might
not have been made. Te
flm couldnt be green lit
until it had some recogniz-
able actors, noted Matthew
Warchus, who directed the
CBS Films release.
Ben Schnetzer, who plays
gay activist Mark Ashton,
said working with Nighy was
a master class in flm acting
_ getting to watch him work
and craf his character.
Since his real-life counter-
part is dead, Nighy got some
insight into Clif from chat-
ting with surviving members
of the mining community.
Tere was some heartening
news that Nighy discovered.
Apparently subsequent to
these events he found a part-
ner, he said.
One of the most poignant
scenes in Pride is when
Clif comes out to Hefna
while they are making sand-
wiches and she tells him mat-
ter-of-factly shes known his
secret for nearly two decades.
Te actors, said Warchus,
didnt need any direction for
that sequence.
I set up the camera,
Warchus said. I said, Do you
want to rehearse? And they
said, No, lets give it a go.
And that was that. What you
see is the frst take.
Nighy said he ofen has
to pinch himself over his
good fortune of working
multiple times with such not-
ed writers as Richard Curtis,
Tom Stoppard and especially
David Hare.
Ive worked with David
Hare all my life, he said. I
think he counted the other
day and it comes up to 10
Tree years ago, Nighy
starred as the cool and rather
sexy _ at least to the over-40
crowd _ master spy Johnny
Worricker in Hares thrill-
er Page Eight, which aired
on PBS Masterpiece Con-
temporary. Tis Novem-
ber, Nighy returns to PBS as
Worricker in two new thrill-
ers written and directed by
Hare:Turks & Caicos and
Salting the Battlefeld.
Nighy gets to work oppo-
site Christopher Walken in
Turks & Caicos, with the
latter playing a quirky char-
acter who may or may not
be a CIA operative. He is a
hero of mine, Nighy said of
Walken. I think probably he
is the funniest man I ever met
in my life.
Nighy also teamed up with
Hare this year in the London
West End revival of Hares
romantic drama Skylight,
which the actor originally
did 17 years ago. Tat pro-
duction, which also stars
Carey Mulligan, is heading to
Broadway in the spring.

steadily in theater, TV and

nition until his award-win-

Nighy, who was 53 when
Love Actually was released,

Denzel levels playing
eld in The Equalizer
By Alex Lamb
Te Equalizer, based of
a 1980s television show, dis-
tinctly feels like a big action
movie from the 90s, with an
older, simple-living, do-good-
er hero who can masterfully
take out the bad guys and
faces a villain who is more
memorable than him.
Denzel Washington is the
kind of talented and char-
ismatic movie star worth
seeing in any flm, and hes
among the best at striking out
with controlled fury. In Te
Equalizer, he plays McCall,
a retired killer of some sort
living a new life as a Home
Depot manager, spending
each night at the same diner
reading literary classics. Tere
he befriends another regular,
Teri (Chlo Grace Moretz),
a young prostitute trapped
in her situation by Russian
When her situation gets too
dire, McCall steps in and gives
the gangsters a chance to let
her go. Tey decline his ofer,
so McCall kills each of them
with astounding brutality.
Tis is visualized similarly to
the recent Sherlock Holmes
movies, as time nearly stops
and McCall analyzes his
surroundings, noticing the
details, the available items to
use as weapons and how to
attack each enemy then
quickly does so with abso-
lute precision. A shot glass
through an eye socket here, a
corkscrew to the neck there,
whatever works.
Te awesome burst of
extreme violence is ultra-grat-
ifying afer the preceding
character-building scenes, and
the contrast between these
vigilante actions and how
McCall comes to work the
next day as his encouraging,
helpful self is amusing. As his
routine carries on normally
for a little while, merciless
Russian mob enforcer Teddy
(Marton Csokas) arrives in
town to deal with whoever is
responsible for the slaughter.
Teddy doesnt mess around,
quickly rising above typical,
forgettable action villains as
Csokas imbues him with a
slithering unpredictability and
gives a livewire to his no-non-
sense demeanor that creates
palpable tension every scene
hes in. He and Washington
have several bracing encoun-
ters with each other, and
McCall sets out to dismantle
the Russian mob operation
once Teddy refuses to quit
pursuing him.
Following his success
with Olympus Has Fallen,
director Antoine Fuqua has
built an even more thrilling
action spectacle here, crafing
his best work since the other
time he directed Washing-
ton in Training Day. He
has a stylish hand for the
action, making each sequence
exciting and intensely felt,
although he occasionally goes
over the top.
Te sound of the flm leaves
an impression as well, espe-
cially in the booming IMAX,
as the atmospheric score by
Harry Gregson-Williams and
the robust sound design deep-
en the danger and strengthen
the violence.
Tanks to the engrossing
performers, Richard Wenks
screenplay overcomes most of
its genre tropes (besides Mc-
Call being nearly invincible,
although his skills are so cool
that its not too bothersome).
Te time spent developing
the characters so viewers are
actually invested in them is
appreciated, as is the thought-
ful wit in the dialogue.
Washingtons performance
oscillates between a calm,
pleasant and semi-OCD
regular Joe to an unstoppa-
ble, cold-blooded agent of
justice like a fip of the switch,
reminding us why hes one of
Hollywoods most enjoyable
and dependable leading men.
And if all that wasnt enter-
taining enough, Te Equal-
izer ends with a resourceful,
exhilarating showdown in
Home Depot that takes ad-
vantage of the hardware and
tools as instruments of death.
If only all trips to the hard-
ware store were that satisfying.

Lawrence Public Library
to sell donated books
Friends of the Lawrence
Public Library will host a
book, CD and DVD sale to-
day through Saturday. Items
will cost $5 or less. Te
sale will take place on the
Kentucky Street side of the
library, located at 707 Ver-
mont St. Memberships to the
Friends of Lawrence Public
Library will be sold at the
door for $10.
I grew up in a home that
didnt have any books, said
Georgann Eglinski, retired
KU law professor and lawyer,
who has volunteered for the
program for almost 15 years.
Teres something about
owning a book the joy of
seeing people fnding books
that they love, a child fnding
a favorite book, maybe [one]
they borrowed from the li-
brary. Its just fantastic.
Te books are donations
from the community and stu-
dents can fnd many college
textbooks in the collection
as well. Tis year, the sale has
approximately 25,000 books,
3,500 DVDs, almost 5,000
childrens and young adult
books, and several hundred
audiobooks, said Kandyce
Horn, Friends program man-
Eglinski said the sale not
only raises money for the li-
brary but also circulates more
books into homes around the
community. Every month,
the money earned helps
fundraise for literacy pro-
grams at the Lawrence Public
Library such as the Summer
Reading, Book Club in a Bag
and Read Across Lawrence.
Fundraising is steered by
Friends of the Lawrence Pub-
lic Library, a nonproft orga-
nization founded in 1972.
Te Friends organization is
operated by a number of for-
mer University staf, alumni
and current student volun-
teers. Tis year, 15 students
will volunteer. One of the
founders, Mary Burchill, for-
mer librarian at the Universi-
ty law library, is the current
Tere is a social aspect to
the organization, volunteers
become friends with one an-
other and build relationships
outside of the Friends. Plus,
its just a fun place to volun-
teer, Horn said. Volunteers
tend to be drawn to causes
that have meaning to them,
most of us are voracious
readers and many are retired
educators and librarians, al-
though many other profes-
sions are represented as well.
Horn began as a volunteer
but said she couldnt pass
up the opportunity to work
for an organization whose
primary mission is to raise
funds while redistributing
books at an afordable price
into the community. Beyond
the continued support of the
organizations mission, Horn
said there are a number of
reasons why people continue
with the Friends.
Every day is diferent be-
cause you never know what
books you might be sorting,
a volunteer may fnd some-
thing they have been looking
for or never knew they need-
ed, she said. You can see
what your contributions have
afected each time you walk
through the library.

build a memorial near the
National Mall honoring the
late President Dwight D. Ei-

who has helped oversee the
project from the start is step-

Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran
resigned from the Eisen-
hower Memorial Commis-
sion before the panel voted
Wednesday to move forward
with a design by architect
Frank Gehry after years of
Moran quietly submitted
his resignation last week af-
ter concluding that paying
homage to Ikes home state
of Kansas in the design has
become a stumbling block
for Gehrys concept for the
memorial park, a spokes-
woman for the senator said.
Gehry proposed a memo-
rial park with statues of Ike
as president and as World
War II general. A large met-
al tapestry would depict the
Kansas landscape of Eisen-
howers boyhood home.
Eisenhowers family has
opposed the tapestry con-
cept and called for a simpler
design. Critics have mount-

design that has delayed the
project for years.
Moran wants the memorial
to be built and has advocated
for Kansas to have a presence

Garrette Silverman said. But
he decided that might be a
hindrance to completing the
Sen. Morans ongoing
support for the inclusion
of Kansas has led him to
conclude that this stance
is blocking a memorial to
President Eisenhower from
completion, Silverman said
in an email. He appreciates
the dedication of the Eisen-
hower Commission staff in
seeing that this memorial
becomes a reality and hopes
an Eisenhower Memorial is
completed soon.
Gehry, the famous Los
Angeles-based architect,
presented a revised design
this month after hearing
objections and eliminated
two tapestries on the sides
of the park, leaving one as a
backdrop to keep the Kan-
sas motif. Gehry has said
the heartland is central to
the war hero and presidents

was most proud to be from
The memorial commission
voted 8-2 with one absten-
tion Wednesday to move
forward with Gehrys revised
design. In October, it will go
before a key federal agency
that oversees planning for
the nations capital.
Kansas senators have
championed the project for
years but have rarely defend-
ed it publicly against critics.
Last year, Sen. Pat Roberts
said it brings Kansas to the

Moran was one of the com-
missions original lawmak-
ers. He began serving in
2001 as a congressman and
maintained his seat when
he was elected to the Sen-
ate nine years later. In June
2013, Moran called on the
commission to endorse Geh-
rys design, and the panel
voted unanimously to move
forward with the concept.
Critics, though, have con-
tinued to campaign against
the design.
We dont object to Kansas
being in the memorial, but it
should be an image of Kansas
that is recognizable as such,
said Justin Shubow of the
National Civic Art Society, a
group that has opposed Geh-
rys design. A baron plain of
trees is not Kansas, and the
fact that it is winter is a bleak
and unpleasant image.
Commission Chairman
Rocco Siciliano, who served
in the Eisenhower White
House, thanked Moran for
his long service.

Boston time capsule found
in head of copper lion statue
BOSTON A time cap-
sule apparently has been
found in an unusual place:
the head of a lion statue at
the building that once served
as the seat of Massachusetts
Te Bostonian Society,
which operates a museum
at the Old State House, said
Tuesday it confrmed the
presence of what had long
been rumored to be a time
capsule from 1901 tucked
away inside the copper stat-
ue. Te statue was recently
taken down from the roof as
part of a restoration efort.
A fber optic camera was
used to locate the time cap-
sule in actuality a copper
box in the head of the
lion, according to Heather
Leet, the societys director of
development. Te next steps,
she said, will include an at-
tempt to carefully open the
statue without damaging it,
followed by the removal of
the box and examination of
its contents.
Te group frst learned of
the potential existence of the
time capsule several years

She had a letter from him
and a list of things in the
time capsule, said Leet.
Te society did some fur-
ther research and uncovered
a 1901 article about the time
capsule in Te Boston Globe,
she said.
Newspaper clippings and
photographs from the peri-
od, along with letters from
politicians and other prom-
inent Bostonians of the era,
are among the items expect-
ed to be found in the box,
which could be opened as
early as next week.

Startup Weekend
comes to Lawrence
Startup Weekend, a week-
end-long conference for en-
trepreneurs, is coming to
Lawrence this weekend for
the frst time. Startup week-
ends ofer entrepreneurs the
opportunity to put their ideas
to the test and see if they are
viable. Te conference will
start at 5 p.m. on Friday and
continue throughout the
weekend to 9 p.m. on Sun-
day at the Lawrence Public
Startup Weekend is a
non-proft organization start-
ed in Seattle with staf in 200
cities worldwide including
Mongolia, South Africa, Lon-
don, Brazil and now Law-
rence, according to the com-
panys website.
Startup Weekend has done
over 1,500 events in 726 cit-
ies, created over 13,000 start-
ups and had over 123,000
entrepreneurs involved ac-
cording to its website.
Tings have changed. Two
or three guys with a few hun-
dred or thousand dollars can
go out there and build a prod-
uct that can turn out a billion
dollar company, Eugene
Woo, entrepreneur in Startup
Weekends video, said.
Te organizers are Devon
Bull, a senior from Denton,
Texas, and past president of
KU entrepreneurship club,
Jacob Von Feldt, a junior from
Lawrence and current presi-
dent of KU entrepreneurship
club, and former University
of Kansas students, Joe Jarvis,
founder of Tall Grass Legal,
and Beth Mckeon, founder of
Kids Calendar.
Von Feldt said afer attend-
ing Startup Weekends in oth-
er cities, Startup Weekend
organizers Jarvis and Mckeon
decided last spring to bring
the event to Lawrence. Tey
contacted Bull and Von Feldt
to help organize their event as
soon as planning commenced
to further the events entre-
preneur and university con-
nections, Von Feldt said.
Te weekend is geared to-
wards people who have busi-
ness ideas and are interested
in peer feedback. Te week-
end starts with sharing ideas
and, from there, the top ideas
have teams that naturally
form around them. Teams
then will spend the rest of
the conference planning their
fnal presentation given to
local entrepreneur leaders,
event attendants and other
observers. Te fnal presenta-
tion is open to the public who
would like to purchase a tick-
et on the event registration
website. A $10 ticket includes
dinner and a seat to watch the
fnal presentations.
Out of the attendants, 13 to
14 University students will
be attending, Von Feldt said.
Te attendees include entre-
preneurs across the Lawrence
area, people who own their
own businesses, who code or
design, or who are involved
in the startup scene, Von
Feldt said.
I think everyone has ideas,
I think everyone to some de-
gree is an innovator. But an
entrepreneur is someone who
takes that idea and acts upon
it and tries to execute upon
it, Ronan Levy, ex-lawyer in
the Startup Weekend Video,
Te teams will be judged by
three judges from Lawrence
who have a comprehensive
background in business and
currently run a startup or
serve as a startup consultant,
according to the event web-
site. Te judges are Michele
Weigand, founder of Focused
Perspective, Suman Saripalli,
founder of KalScott Engi-
neering, and Will Katz, di-
rector of University of Kansas
Small Business Development
Eight coaches will also be at-
tending the startup weekend
to give advice to teams along
the way. Te coaches come
from wide backgrounds such
as strategic marketing, social
media, engineering, design,
sofware development, busi-
ness and law.

Erotica chain to sell
goods to pay back taxes
TOPEKA An online sale
of sex toys could give Kansas
a boost of revenue.
Te sale is being held so the
owner of fve adult stores can
pay of a tax debt to the state.
Te Kansas Department of
Revenue seized items in July
from the stores operated
by United Outlets LLC, under
the name Bang for failure
to pay sales, income and with-
holding taxes of $163,986,
spokeswoman Jeanine Ko-
randa said. Two stores were
in Topeka and one each was
in Junction City, Wichita and
Kansas City, Kansas.
Koranda said the assets were
released back to the owner to
auction the property.
Senate Minority Leader
Anthony Hensley, a Topeka
Democrat, used the auction
to make a dig at Gov. Sam
Brownback, saying the Re-
publican leader was so des-
perate to fll the massive hole
in the state budget caused by
his reckless income tax cuts
that the state of Kansas is now
in the porn business.
Brownback faces a strong
challenge from Democrat-
ic challenger Paul Davis
because of concerns about
whether tax cuts are boosting
the economy or potentially
ruining the states fnances.
Brownback and his support-
ers insist his policies par-
ticularly aggressive person-
al income tax cuts have
helped to create nearly 55,000
new private-sector jobs since
he took ofce in January
2011. Te Legislatures non-
partisan research staf is pre-
dicting a $238 million budget
shortfall by July 2016.
Eileen Hawley, the gover-
nors spokeswoman, defend-
ed the sale, saying the same
process has been use in pre-
vious administrations.
While we do not agree with
the type of business involved
here, it was nonetheless a le-
gal business that was closed
due to failure to pay taxes,
Hawley said in a news release.
She went on to say the state
cant legally destroy property
and that returning it would
have rewarded the business
that violated state tax law.

Police Chief Tim Longo gives an update on the search for missing University of Virginia student Hannah Eliza-
beth Graham during a news conference Sept. 21 in Charlottesville, Va. Graham was last seen early Saturday,
Sept. 13. A man authorities believe is the last person seen with Graham before she disappeared is being sought
on arrest warrants charging him with reckless driving. Authorities also said they want to talk to him about
charged in the disappearance
of a University of Virginia
student was captured in Tex-
as on Wednesday, a day after
police announced they had
probable cause to arrest him.
Police believe Jesse Le-
roy Matthew Jr. was the last
person seen with Hannah
Graham, an 18-year-old
sophomore who went miss-
ing on Sept. 13. Authorities
obtained a felony warrant for
his arrest late Tuesday. He has
been charged with abduction
with intent to defile.
Matthew had sped away
from a police station Satur-
day after coming with family
members to ask for a lawyer.
Its not clear whether the
longtime area resident knew
Graham, who was last seen
in an area lined with shops
and restaurants where police
believe she went into a bar
with him.
Charlottesville Police Chief
Timothy Longo announced
Matthews capture at a news
conference Wednesday night.
He said Matthew was in cus-
tody in Galveston, Texas, and
would be extradited to Vir-
Longo added that police
were still searching for Gra-
This case is nowhere near
over, said the police chief,
who did not take questions
from reporters. We have a
person in custody but theres
a long road ahead of us.
A dispatcher at the sheriff s
office in Galveston referred
questions about the arrest
and timing of Matthews ex-
tradition to Charlottesville
police, who did not provide
details at the news confer-
ence and did not immediate-
ly respond to telephone mes-
sages afterward.
Adam S. Lee, special agent
in charge of the FBI office in
Richmond, said at the news
conference that the real hero
of today is an employee, a
deputy with the Galveston
County Sheriff s Office.
So wed like to, on behalf of
the FBI, thank them for their
very effective police work to-
The case has spread fear
through the quiet commu-
nity about 70 miles west of
Richmond. Authorities have
increased patrols and a late-
night transportation pro-
gram for students, who also
have begun walking in pairs
at night and are paying closer
attention to their surround-
While police continued
searching for Graham and
struggled to make sense of
what led to her disappear-
ance, a vigil was scheduled
Wednesday evening at her
alma mater, West Potomac
High School in northern
Virginia. Graham was an
alpine skier and alto saxo-
phone player who had earned
straight As six years in a row,
according to family members
and police.
According to police, Gra-
ham met friends at a restau-
rant for dinner on Sept. 12
before stopping by two par-
ties at off-campus housing
units. She left the second
party alone, police have said,
and sent a text message to a
friend saying she was lost.
Surveillance videos showed
her walking, and at some
points running, past a pub
and a service station and then
onto the Downtown Mall, a
seven-block pedestrian strip
where police believe she en-
tered a bar with Matthew.
The university said hes
been employed at the Uni-
versity of Virginia Medical
Center since Aug. 12, 2012,
as a patient technician in the
operating room.
The charges against the
6-foot-2, 270-pound Mat-
thew surprised Dave Han-
sen, who first met him about
11 years ago when Hansen
served as an assistant pastor
at an area church.
I always thought he was a
gentle giant, just a nice guy,
Hansen said. He seemed
genuine with his faith and
spirituality. ... I dont see him
doing this at all, but thats
usually the case, I guess.
Hansen said hes only kept
up with Matthew through
Facebook, but ran into him at
the universitys medical cen-
ter within the last year. He
said the soft-spoken Matthew
greeted him in an elevator
with a high-five.

missing university student
Kobach seeks to intervene
in Kansas Senate dispute
TOPEKA Republican
Secretary of State Kris Ko-
bach jumped Wednesday into
a lawsuit fled by a disgrun-
tled voter seeking to force
Kansas Democrats to name a
new U.S. Senate nominee in
hopes of speeding the reso-
lution of a legal dispute shad-
owing a race with possible
national implications.
Kobach fled a motion to
intervene in Shawnee County
District Court and a request
for a decision by Oct. 1, say-
ing quick action is necessary
so ballots can be printed in
time for people to begin vot-
ing in advance on Oct. 15.
Kobach, like the voter, ar-
gues that a state election law
requires Democrats to re-
place ex-nominee Chad Tay-
lor, who earlier this month
dropped out of the race
against three-term Republi-
can Sen. Pat Roberts.
Some Democrats pushed
Taylor out, seeing indepen-
dent candidate Greg Orman
as the stronger rival for Rob-
erts and they dont want a
new nominee, fearing a ma-
jor split of the anti-Roberts
vote. Many Republicans are
pushing for a new Democrat-
ic candidate to increase the
chances of Roberts holding
the seat and the GOP recap-
turing a Senate majority.
Te voter who sued the
Kansas Democratic Party
and three top ofcials is Da-
vid Orel, 57, of Kansas City,
Kansas. His son works for
the re-election campaign of
Republican Gov. Sam Brown-
back who, like Kobach, serves
on Roberts honorary cam-
paign committee. But the el-
der Orel has been a registered
Democrat at least since 1999
and voted in the Democratic
primary this year, voter regis-
tration records show.
Kobach said in an interview
that he wants to intervene
because, as the states top
elections ofcial, the court
might want to order his ofce
to take some action. A three-
judge panel will hear the case.
In this particular case,
the wheels of justice have to
grind quickly, not slowly,
Kobach said. Were just try-
ing to pave the way for the
court to do whatever it wants
to do quickly and efciently.

will review the facts and cir-
cumstances surrounding the

Piepmeier and Ohio Attorney
General Mike DeWine of not
attempting to get an indict-
ment. Tey also said the store

Prosecutor Stacey De-
Grafenreid, who assisted
Piepmeier, said Crawford was
shot twice by one ofcer, once
in the elbow and one in the
side under the rib area slightly
from the front to the back. De-
Grafenreid says no other shots
were fred afer Crawford went
down, dropping the rife.
Tis was a real tragedy, De-
Grafenreid said in a telephone
interview. But she said that
based on what information the
ofcers had when they entered
the Wal-Mart, they were doing
what they were trained to do.
U.S. Attorney Carter Stewart
in Columbus released a state-
ment saying the departments

Te city of Beavercreek had
said a statement that was ask-
ing the FBI to conduct a review
to determine if there were any
civil rights violations. DeW-
ine said afer the decision was
announced that he thought it
is an appropriate time for the
Justice Department to look
into whether any federal laws
were violated.
DeWine said state authorities
have been in frequent contact
with federal ofcials and will
turn over requested investiga-
tive fles to them.
Crawfords family also had
repeatedly asked state inves-
tigators to release the sur-
veillance video publicly, and
Facebook groups and online
petitions pushed for the re-
lease. Te Ohio attorney gen-
erals ofce says the video was
released publicly with the end
of the grand jury proceeding.
Representatives of the Day-
ton NAACP said the video
clips presented by the prosecu-
tor dont show imminent dan-
ger that would justify Craw-
fords fatal shooting.
Te tragedy is that once
again, our criminal justice
system has failed our commu-
nity, said Lori Coleman, who
leads the Dayton NAACPs
criminal justice committee.
Dayton NAACP President
Derrick Foward called the
grand jurys decision unbe-
But Lori Shaw, a University of
Dayton law professor who has
been following the case, said
she was not surprised with the
grand jurys decision.
I think in this particular
instance, because the police
had reason to believe that a
weapon was involved, it made
it much less likely that there
would be a charge, Shaw said.
She said because mass shoot-
ings have taken place in a vari-
ety of public places, police can
be under added pressure in
such cases.
Were in 2014 ... I think the
public is a lot more on edge,
and Im sure that police are
more on edge.
Its a tragic situation all the
way around.

Forty years afer meeting at
the University, they are now
fghting to change marriage
rights for same-sex couples
in Kansas. Tey said its be-
come easier to be openly gay
and that theyve never had any
problems in Lawrence as far
as getting housing and dealing
with bankers to buy property,
even in the late 1980s and
Tey are sharing their story
at Free and Equal Kansas, an
event sponsored by several
LGBTQ student groups. Tey
said there are students who
come from all over who have
diferent voices and perspec-
tives and they hope to help
raise a more unifed voice in
support of equal marriage
rights in the community.
Nelson said it has taken a lot
of work and energy to raise
funds to support the lawsuit,
but its worth it to them.
Youve got to keep focused
on it as a vision, he said.
Joey Hentzler, a senior from
Topeka, was the one who met
Dedmon and Nelson and sug-
gested they come to Lawrence
to share their story. Hent-
zler met the couple last year
during Kansas City Pride Fest.
Hentzler said Free and Equal
Kansas will be a discussion
about LGBTQ issues, social
justice and same-sex marriage
in general, and Dedmon and
Nelson will tell their story and
talk about the lawsuit.
We have a progressive past
and we also have a progressive
present, and thats what I want
to plug students in to, to make
them realize that this battle is
going on right now, Hentzler
He also hopes that the event
will get people primed for the
upcoming election and in-
spire them to become politi-
cally active in supporting gay
Tats another thing that
Im wanting to come from this
discussion, is to make people
mad or to make people want
to do something about it.
So when we see discrimina-
tion, not only can we use the

Marijuana legalization
effort begins in California
national marijuana advocacy
group took steps Wednesday
to begin raising money for a
campaign to legalize recre-
ational pot use in California
in 2016, a move with poten-
tial to add a dose of extra ex-
citement to the presidential
election year.
Te Marijuana Policy Proj-
ect fled paperwork with the
California secretary of states
ofce registering a campaign
committee to start accepting
and spending contributions
for a pot legalization initiative
on the November 2016 state
ballot, the group said.
Te measure would be simi-
lar to those passed in 2012 by
voters in Colorado and Wash-
ington, the frst U.S. states to
legalize commercial sales of
marijuana to all adults over
California, long the nation-
al leader in illegal marijuana
production and home to a
thriving, largely unregulated
medical marijuana industry,
is one of the 21 other states
that currently allow marijua-
na use only for medical rea-
sons. Te drug remains illegal
under federal law.
Marijuana prohibition has
had an enormously detri-
mental impact on California
communities. Its been inef-
fective, wasteful and coun-
terproductive. Its time for a
more responsible approach,
Marijuana Policy Project Ex-
ecutive Director Rob Kampia
said. Regulating and taxing
marijuana similarly to alco-
hol just makes sense.
Te Washington, D.C.-
based group also has estab-
lished campaign committees
to back legalization measures
in Arizona, Massachusetts
and Nevada in 2016.
Voters in Oregon, Alaska
and the District of Columbia
will weigh in on marijuana le-
galization in November.
In 2010, California voters
rejected a ballot initiative
seeking to legalize recreation-
al pot. Te measure, just like
the medical marijuana law
the state approved in 1996,
was the frst of its kind. But
along with opposition from
law enforcement and elected
ofcials, Proposition 19 faced
unexpected resistance from
medical marijuana users and
outlaw growers in the states
so-called Emerald Triangle
who worried legalization
would lead to plummeting
marijuana prices.
Marijuana Policy Project
spokesman Mason Tvert
predicted no such divisions
would surface this time
Citing his groups experi-
ence in Colorado and the ad-
vantage of aiming for a pres-
idential election year when
voter turnout is higher, Tvert
said legalization supporters
would use the next two years
to build a broad-based coali-
tion and craf ballot language
that addresses concerns of
particular constituencies.
Obviously, its a whole dif-
ferent landscape in Califor-
nia, where it will cost prob-
ably as much or more to just
get on the ballot as it did to
run a winning campaign afer
getting on the ballot in Colo-
rado, he said.
League of California Cit-
ies lobbyist Tim Cromartie,
whose group opposed the
states 2010 pot legalization
initiative and until this year
fought legislative eforts to
give the state greater over-
sight of medical marijuana,
said Wednesday that it was
too soon to say what kind
of opposition, if any, would
greet a 2016 campaign.
Lynne Lyman, California di-
rector of the Drug Policy Al-
liance, said her group expects
to play a major role in the le-
galization efort and already
has started raising money.
Lyman said the goal is to have
an initiative written by next
summer. She estimated that
a pro-legalization campaign
would cost at least $8 million.
Even though California
would be following in the
steps of other states if a 2016
initiative passes, legalizing
recreational marijuana use
there would have far-reaching
implications, Lyman said.
When an issue is taken up
in California, it becomes a na-
tional issue, she said. What
we really hope is that with a
state this large taking that
step, the federal government
will be forced to address the
ongoing issue of marijuana

When an issue is taken up

in California, it becomes a
national issue.

BOSTON A judge grant-
ed a two-month trial delay
on Wednesday for Boston
Marathon bombing suspect
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, but de-
nied a defense request to
move his trial from Boston.
Judge George OToole
ruled that the trial will be-
gin Jan. 5 instead of Nov. 3,
but said theres no reason to
assume in advance that a fair
jury cannot be selected in
Defense attorneys had
asked that the trial be moved
to Washington, D.C., citing
extensive media coverage
in Boston and evaluations
of public sentiment by their
experts. Tey also asked for
a trial delay until at least
September 2015, saying they
have not had time to pre-
pare for a November trial,
and had been given less time
than was granted in many
other federal death penalty
Tsarnaev, 21, has plead-
ed not guilty to 30 federal
charges. He could face the
death penalty if convicted.
Prosecutors say he and his
older brother placed two
pressure cooker bombs that
exploded near the mara-
thons fnish line. Tree peo-
ple were killed and more
than 260 were injured. Ta-
merlan Tsarnaev, 26, died in
a shootout with police sever-
al days later.
Although media coverage
in this case has been exten-
sive, at this stage the defen-
dant has failed to show that
it has so infamed and per-
vasively prejudiced the pool
that a fair and impartial jury
cannot be empaneled in this
District, OToole wrote.
He also wrote that a short
delay is warranted because of
the large amount of evidence
the defense has received
from prosecutors. But he
said, An additional delay of
ten months as requested by
the defendant does not ap-
pear necessary.
Prosecutors and defense
attorneys agreed they would
need to summon about 2,000
potential jurors, but they
fled more than 100 pages
of legal briefs arguing over
moving the trial.
It is doubtful wheth-
er a jury could be selected
anywhere in the country
whose members were whol-
ly unaware of the Marathon
bombings. Te Constitution
does not oblige them to be,
OToole said.

Mo. A Missouri drill ser-
geant is guilty of sexually as-
saulting and harassing eight fe-
male soldiers, a military judge
ruled Wednesday.
Army Staf Sgt. Angel M.
Sanchez, 30, was accused of
using his supervisory position
with the 14th Military Police
Brigade at Fort Leonard Wood
to isolate his victims and win
their trust with favors, includ-
ing cake and ice cream. One
woman testifed that failing to
cooperate would have jeopar-
dized her military status.
Te women said the inci-
dents took place in the bath-
room of the female barracks
as well as in an ofce shared by
drill sergeants.
Sanchez, a married father of
two, was found guilty of three
criminal charges including
four counts of sexual assault
and six counts of abusive sex-
ual contact, as well as several
lesser charges of maltreatment.
Te Philadelphia native
didnt testify during the three-
day court-martial but apolo-
gized to his victims, many of
whom were in the courtroom,
afer the verdict.
I hope someday youll be
able to forgive me, he said. I
let a lot of people down.
Military prosecutors recom-
mended a 25-year sentence;
Sanchezs lawyers asked for an
eight-year sentence.
At the outset of the military
trial, Sanchez pleaded guilty
to three charges of disobeying
orders by having sexual con-
tact with three female trainees.
Several additional accusations
against Sanchez were dis-
missed afer a pretrial hearing
in the spring.
Sanchez was found not guilty
of nine counts, including an
allegation of rape brought by
a medic in Afghanistan while
he was stationed there in 2011
and 2012.
Sanchez also served one
tour in Iraq, where he earned
a Bronze Star and two other
combat medals before arriving
at the Missouri post in August
Several of his victims testi-
fed about how the assaults
lef them flled with fear, self-
doubt and a lingering mistrust
of the institution they pledged
to faithfully serve.
I no longer wanted to be
part of the Army, one female
soldier said. I didnt trust any
of my superiors, or even my
male peers.
Sanchezs attorney Ernesto
Gapasin questioned the ac-
cusers credibility, noting that
some of the initial accusers
were either facing disciplinary
action of their own or forced
separation from the military
at the time complaints against
Sanchez were raised.
Te government wants to
focus on this overwhelm-
ing control Sgt. Sanchez had
over his accusers, Gapasin
said before the verdict was
announced. What this case
is really about is consent and
Te charges against Sanchez
were fled in May, days be-
fore a Pentagon study on sex
assault in the military found
that more than 5,000 reports
of sexual abuse had been fled
in the previous fscal year, a 50
percent increase from the pre-
vious 12 months.
Pressure from Congress led
to several reforms in how the
military justice system handles
sex assault complaints. Accus-
ers are now assigned lawyers to
guide them through the legal
process, and the statute of lim-
itations has been eliminated.
Anyone convicted of a sexual
assault in the military faces a
required minimum sentence
of a dishonorable discharge.
Drill sergeant found
guilty of sex assaults
Staff Sgt. Angel Sanchez is
accused of using his supervisory
position with the 14th Military
Police Brigade to threaten some
of the women he was tasked with
training. Most of the allegations
involved women at Fort Leonard
Wood in Missouri.
NEWARK, N.J. A former
star of the MTV reality show
Jersey Shore and his broth-
er fled bogus tax returns on
nearly $9 million and claimed
millions in business expenses
including luxury vehicles
and clothing that were
actually for personal use, ac-
cording to an indictment re-
leased Wednesday.
Mike Te Situation Sor-
rentino and his brother Marc
pleaded not guilty through
their attorneys during a brief
initial appearance in U.S.
District Court. Neither made
any statements during or afer
the proceeding, though when
Mike Sorrentino was asked
outside the courthouse if he
was innocent he smiled and
replied, Of course.
Each brother was released
on $250,000 bail and sched-
uled for arraignment on Oct.
According to the sev-
en-count indictment, the Sor-
rentinos earned about $8.9
million between 2010 and
2012, mostly through two
companies they controlled,
MPS Entertainment and Sit-
uation Nation. Tey alleged-
ly fled false documents that
understated the income from
the businesses as well as their
personal income. Mike Sor-
rentino also is charged with
failing to fle taxes for 2011, a
year in which he earned near-
ly $2 million.
Te brothers also alleged-
ly spent millions of dollars
on personal expenses they
claimed were for business In
2012, for example, the broth-
ers fled documents with an
unnamed accounting frm
in Staten Island that claimed
$3.9 million in business ex-
penses, according to the in-
dictment released by U.S. At-
torney Paul Fishman.
Both brothers are charged
with one count of conspiracy
to defraud the United States,
which is punishable by a max-
imum prison sentence of fve
years upon conviction.
Marc Sorrentino faces three
counts of fling false returns
from 2010 to 2012 and Mike
Sorrentino is charged with
two counts, in addition to one
count of failing to fle taxes
for 2011. Te conspiracy is
alleged to have run from ear-
ly 2010 to late 2013 in Mon-
mouth and Ocean counties in
New Jersey.
Te false fling counts carry
maximum potential prison
sentences of three years; fail-
ure to fle carries a maximum
penalty of one year in prison.
Rather than living in real-
ity and reporting their true
income, Michael Sorrentino
and his brother Marc created
the illusion that they earned
less income by fling false and
fraudulent tax returns, said
Jonathan D. Larsen, head of
IRS-Criminal Investigation,
Christopher Adams, an at-
torney for Marc Sorrentino,
blasted the governments case.
He has spent the better part
of a year trying to show them
faws in their theory, and it
is unfortunate that the gov-
ernment has chosen to rely
on the word of a disgraced
accountant who is a proven
liar, Adams told Te Associ-
ated Press in an email.
Richard Sapinski, an attor-
ney representing Mike Sor-
rentino, didnt comment afer
the hearing and didnt return
a message seeking comment.
Te cast of the MTV reality
show were known for their
rowdy lifestyle that occasion-
ally led to legal scrapes. In
July, Mike Sorrentino agreed
to take anger management
classes to resolve assault
charges stemming from a July
15 fght with his brother at
their familys tanning salon.
Reporters gather around Mike The Situation Sorrentino as he leaves the MLK Jr. Federal Courthouse in New-
ark, N.J., after a court appearance on Wednesday. The former Jersey Shore reality series star and his brother
underpaid taxes on nearly $9 million in income over the last several years, the U.S. attorneys ofce charged
in a seven-count indictment released Wednesday.

Some lenders are prepar-
ing to reissue credit or debit
cards to customers to head
of possible losses following
the breach of customer data at
Home Depot.
Capital One Financial and
JPMorgan Chase & Co. said
Wednesday they are prepar-
ing to assign new cards to ac-
countholders due to the data
thef at the home-improve-
ment retailer.
Earlier this month, Home
Depot confrmed that mali-
cious sofware lurking in its
check-out terminals between
April and September afected
56 million debit and credit
cards. Target, Michaels and
Neiman Marcus also have
been attacked by hackers in
the past year.
While lenders ofen will
issue customers a card afer
its been lost, stolen or used
to make an unauthorized
purchase, Capital One and
JPMorgan are taking action
based merely on whether ac-
counts may be compromised.
Capital One, which issues
debit cards in addition to
its namesake credit card, is
preparing to do a proactive,
mass reissue of credit and
debit cards on accounts that
it believes are at risk due to
the Home Depot data breach,
said spokeswoman Pam Gi-
She declined to say how
many accountholders would
be receiving new cards, but
added that the lender also
reissues cards once it detects
fraudulent activity.
JPMorgan Chase & Co.
began notifying some of its
customers last week to expect
new cards, said Chase spokes-
man Edward Kozmor.
In one of the notices Chase
sent to customers with a Unit-
ed-brand card, the bank said
it would be reissuing their
cards because the security
breach at Home Depot may
have put their United card at
Te note told customers that
Chase would be mailing out
their new cards at the end of
this month.
In the meantime, Chase is
advising cardholders to keep
their current cards and moni-
tor their accounts for any pur-
chases they dont recognize.
Other major card issuers are
taking a diferent approach.
American Express has
beefed up its fraud monitor-
ing on accounts that may have
been afected by the breach. If
the company confrms fraud-
ulent activity on an account, it
will immediately replace the
card, said Amelia Woltering,
a spokeswoman at American
Bank of America is also
monitoring accounts for
fraud and, if it believes a
customers account is at risk,
it will reissue the card, said
spokeswoman Betty Riess.
Philip Tschudy, a spokes-
man at CUNA Mutual Group,
which insures credit unions
against card fraud losses, said
many credit unions are block-
ing and reissuing cards in the
wake of the Home Depot data
thef as a precautionary mea-
sure to prevent fraudulent
Among the bank customers
who have had to be issued a
new debit card recently due to
fraud risk is Beverly Blough of
Belpre, Ohio.Blough, a retired
dietitian, was notifed by her
small community bank a few
weeks ago that her debit card
was compromised and need-
ed to be replaced.
Tere werent any unexpect-
ed charges on her account,
though. And the lender didnt
say specifcally whether her
card was snared in the Home
Depot hack.
Despite the risks, Blough
said shes not changing where
or how she uses her debit
I continue to shop at Home
Depot and use my new debit
card, she said. Im just going
to be cautious and vigilant.
Banks reissuing cards
over Home Depot breach
Home Depot said Thursday that malicious software lurking in its check-out terminals between April and
September affected 56 million debit and credit cards that customers swiped at its stores. Target, Michaels
and Neiman Marcus have also been attacked by hackers in the past year.
NEW YORK A new gov-
ernment study suggests the
number of U.S. adults who
have tried electronic ciga-
rettes may be leveling of.
Te proportion of adults
who have ever used e-ciga-
rettes rose from about 3 per-
cent to 8 percent from 2010
to 2012. But there was no
signifcant change last year,
according to the Centers for
Disease Control and Preven-
tion study.
Te studys conclusions
seem to parallel a modest
decline in e-cigarette sales
during the same period that
have been noted in analyst
Te fndings come from an
annual survey of thousands of
adults. It has been the CDCs
only source on e-cigarette
trends since the devices start-
ed selling in the U.S. in late
E-cigarettes are bat-
tery-powered devices that
produce an odorless vapor
that typically contains nico-
tine. Tey are ofen described
as a less dangerous alternative
to regular cigarettes, one that
may help smokers quit.
But e-cigarettes are not yet
regulated by the federal gov-
ernment, and there hasnt
been much research on them
completed yet.
Te long-term public
health impact of these prod-
ucts is uncertain, studys
lead author, Brian King said.
But he called the leveling of
in adults who have ever tried
e-cigarettes a positive note.
Te study also found the
percentage of adults who are
described as current e-ciga-
rette smokers that is, they
said theyd used one at least
one in the previous 30 days
has been hovering at around
2 percent.
Roughly 75 percent of cur-
rent e-cigarette users said
they also smoked regular
cigarettes and that fgure
hasnt changed much in the
four years of the survey, re-
leased last week by the med-
ical journal, Nicotine & To-
bacco Research.

Bivens said the discovery of
the empty packs of cigarettes
and dirty diapers is helping to
cement authorities belief they
were closing in as the manhunt
stretched into its 12th full day.
Tey believe Frein is using dia-
pers so he can remain station-
ary for long periods of time.
Tey are testing the diapers to
confrm he wore them.
Frein appears to be probing
the loose perimeter thats been
set up around him. He has
also purposely made himself
visible at times, staying just far
enough away to make it un-
likely hed be caught, he said.
I almost think that some of
this is a game to him, Bivens
Upwards of 1,000 law en-
forcement ofcials have been
involved in the search for
Frein, named last week to the
FBIs 10 most wanted list. He is
considered armed and danger-
ous, and police have authority
to kill him if he doesnt surren-
In an indication of just how
wild the landscape is, tactical
teams have kicked out quite
a few bears as they search for
Frein in caves, Bivens said.
Te lengthy manhunt has
upended life in this usually
tranquil corner of the Pocono
Mountains, with unannounced
and indefnite roadblocks and
a shelter in place directive
that prevented residents from
leaving their houses for more
than 24 hours at one point.
Tose who werent already

Cops: Saw ambush suspect,
then found his dirty diapers
A Pennsylvania State Police trooper helps create a perimeter in the search
area for Eric Frien near the intersection of Happy Hill Lane and Bear Town
Road in Canadensis, Pa., on Tuesday. The manhunt for the survivalist
accused of ambushing a state police barracks has narrowed to the rural
area where he grew up and his parents still live, but Frein, the suspect,
has managed to elude capture despite the efforts of hundreds of law
enforcement ofcials.

Suburban Denver student
education protest grows

LITTLETON, Colo. In the
largest of a series of ongoing
student protests, about 700 young
people gathered in suburban
Denver to rally against a new set
of high school history standards
proposed by a conservative-led
school board.
The protest at a busy inter-
section near Littleton marked a
continuation of demonstrations
that began Friday with a sick out
from teachers upset over issues
including the plan to focus on
material that promotes patriotism
and respect for authority.
The Denver Post reports that
students mainly from two schools
rallied for about two hours
Wednesday. Later about 75 stu-
dents from another school walked
out after meeting with the district
superintendent on the issue.

Kansan football beat writer
chats with Wescott Eberts,
a co-editor of Burnt Orange
Nation blog, to get a closer
look at Saturdays opponent.
DAN: Teres no debating the
fact that Mack Brown had a
good run at Texas. All he did in
16 seasons was win 158 games,
he went to 15 bowls, notched
three BCS bowl victories, and
took home the 2005-2006
National Championship. But
for a tradition-rich program
like Texas, that has historically
won 70 percent of its games,
Browns last four years fell
well short of the mark, going
30-21. Now, 30-21 over four
years would be good by many
schools standards, excellent
by Kansas, but, as we all know,
that kind of performance is
subpar at UT. So afer the
2013 season, a season in which
Texas was playing for the Big
12 Championship in the fnal
week, Brown and Texas parted
ways afer the bowl game
on apparently good terms.
How have Texas fans handled
Browns resignation afer he
spent almost two decades on
the sidelines?
WESCOTT: I think the fan
base was pretty divided at that
point. Tere were a lot of old-
school people who would look
down at the younger Texas
fans that wanted Mack gone
and would say, You didnt
know where the program was
before Mack Brown, and they
were still living of of what
Brown did from 1998-2009
and then that 11-year stretch
that was so good in the Big
12, they probably ignored the
last four years and acted like
it didnt happen. I think they
kind of believed that Mack
could turn it around.
For those people paying
really close attention to the
program, they were familiar
with how concerning it was
with what was being said
about the program and the
information that was leaking
out of it, and very concerned
about the day-to-day
operations and the things that
it took Texas to be successful.
For instance, Texas was very
late to add a director of player
personnel on the recruiting
side, while Nick Saban added
a lot of diferent football
analysts on that side to help
out with recruiting and all the
logistics with that, and when
Mack Brown announced the
hire of the director of player
personnel he kind of joked
that, Wed been running a
mom-and-pop operation here
for a while as if it was funny
that Texas wasnt actively
leveraging their resources.
In 2010, afer that poor
season when he hired his
football-specifc strength and
conditioning coach, many
other programs had already
had one for some time. Texas
hired a nutritionist that year,
so there are a lot of ways that
Texas had fallen behind other
programs in college football
and werent keeping up that
kind of made it seem that Mack
Brown was a little bit asleep at
the wheel like he was going
through the motions. I would
say the discerning fan, the
ones that really knew what was
going on wanted Mack gone
and were happy with it.
DAN: So insert Charlie
Strong, a tough, defensive-
minded disciplinarian. In four
seasons at Louisville, Strong
went 37-15, including 23-3 in
his fnal two seasons with a
win over Florida in the 2013
Sugar Bowl. When it comes to
coaching, hes got the chops,
but, just from an outsiders
perspective, a lot of the
question marks on the hiring
have been whether Strong can
recruit in Texas with a lack of
familiarity with the area. Now,
Mack Brown did have past Big
12 experience at Iowa State
before being hired, so he had
some pipelines to tap into. My
question is this: what were the
initial feelings in Austin on the
Strong hiring on the day of
the announcement, and have
they changed or not now with
non-conference play is in the
WESCOTT: You get a segment
of the Texas fan base that
was disappointed that the
Longhorns didnt make a
splash hire. Obviously there
were a lot of rumors about
Nick Saban possibly coming
to Texas, there were other guys
like Jimbo Fisher, Jim Mora,
Art Briles, who wouldve been
perhaps more splash hires
than Strong. I think Strongs
track record and as a defensive
coach at Florida all played
pretty well with Texas fans in
the end.
Looking back on it, what
may not have been the best
thing for the long-term health
of the program was the fact
that new athletic director
Steve Patterson made the hire
basically on his own, he did
have a search committee but
he didnt really reach out to
very many of the big-name
boosters and always let them
know what was going on. And
certainly that was another
segment of the Texas fan base
that wields a lot of power and
perhaps shouldnt be making
the personnel decisions, but
long-term as the longhorns
look to facelif, fx or upgrade
their facilities, which really
need to be done in a number of
ways for a number of diferent
I think Patterson may have
hurt himself, but I think for
the most part once Texas fans
got over the disappointment
of not getting a bigger name
coach, I think Charlie Strong,
with his sincerity, and how
much he really cares about
the development of players as
people, plays pretty well for
Texas fans.
DAN: Tree years ago when
Charlie Weis was hired to
toughen a football program in
the midst of a steady nosedive,
Weiss frst plan of action was
to separate the wheat from
the chaf. He dismissed 29
players from the roster he
inherited, largely for academic
or behavioral reasons. Charlie
Strong has had to do some
housecleaning of his own this
year, but to a lesser degree: 9
players have lef the program
so far, and David Ash retired
from football due to a bad
history of concussions. All
things considered, have
expectations been a little
tempered this year given
the attrition this team has
WESCOTT: I think those
expectations changed
really quickly. In assessing
the outlook for the season
heading into it, what ended
up happening, especially in
losing Dominic Espinosa, the
senior center, who had a great
majority of the starts on the
ofensive line, really he had
about 80 percent of the starts,
he got injured the frst game,
and David Ash sufered that
concussion against North
Texas and subsequently had
to retire, Texas had to suspend
Kennedy Estelle and Desmond
Harrison, a couple of guys that
were the few tackle options
on the team. Not having
Daje Johnson, some of the
dismissals before the season,
really, in looking at a worst-
case scenario for Texas, a lot of
those things came to pass very
quickly. Against UCLA, they
lost junior defensive tackle
Desmond Harrison who has
been a major contributor on
the defensive line.
So based on the expectations
coming into the season, it was
defnitely a disappointment
as things developed. It wasnt
really surprising, I think the
BYU game hurt. Strong said
the players werent ready
to play, which was a major
disappointment, especially
afer the blowout against BYU
last year. Heading in, even
though defensive coordinator
Vance Bedford said that this
wasnt something he was
looking at as revenge game,
I think everybody else, some
of the players at least, were
looking for revenge.
Te UCLA game was more
encouraging especially from
an ofensive standpoint. Te
ofense opened up a little
bit more, showed a bit more
variation and misdirection
and the ability to put the
defenders in confict, but the
ability to fnish still isnt there
for Texas and thats a concern
moving forward as they have
the opportunities to play some
close games.
DAN: Kansas and Texas have
only met up on the gridiron
13 times. Texas leads the series
11-2, having won the last 11.
KUs last victory over the
Longhorns came back around
the Great Depression in 1938,
and no, I did not say the Great
Recession of 2008. Rather,
the Great Depression. Singer/
Songwriter Bill Withers was
born in 1938. For the most
part, the games have not been
evenly contested. However,
it took a high-wire act from
Vince Young to escape
Lawrence in 2004, and Case
McCoy pulling one out of the
fre in the waning seconds in
2012, to keep the streak alive.
Im not sure how keen Texas
fans are to those memories, but
if anyone mentions 4th and 18,
or ofensive pass-interference
on Charles Gordon, Kansas
fans will shudder and likely
throw something. Tis year
may be diferent, as Texas
really has no reason to take
anything for granted, but is it
fair to say that the Longhorns
tend to sleepwalk their way
into Lawrence more times
than not?
sleepwalking into Lawrence? I
think it is fair to say that some
of those Longhorn teams may
have underestimated what
it takes to win in Lawrence.
I would say it can make it
difcult to play in later-season
games for Texas teams that
arent used to playing in the
cold and in that environment.
Both of those games you
mentioned, the 2004 and the
2012 games, both came later in
the season.
Texas also sometimes
struggles to play in earlier
games. Tis game is going to
be a 3 oclock game, 11 oclock
is the time that Texas seems to
struggle with the most.
I dont think this Texas
team is good enough to
underestimate anyone. Going
to Lawrence is a much diferent
case than Kansas coming to
Austin. Te longhorns havent
really struggled with any of
those games but they surely
have those difculties in
Lawrence. Its a more difcult
place to play than having a
home matchup. Kansas does
have a better record than Texas
going into this game, and that
may be the frst time its ever

DAN: Te Texas ofense ranks
103rd in passing yards, 101st
in rushing yards, and 107th in
points per game. What should
Kansas fans expect from
quarterback Tyrone Swoopes

Kansas prepares for Texas slugfest
Te expression that foot-
ball is a game of inches will
be a common theme as Texas
heads to Memorial Stadium
in Lawrence to take on Kan-
sas at 3 p.m. Saturday.
On the Kansas ofense, it
starts with sophomore quar-
terback Montell Cozart. Kan-
sas runs a spread ofense,
which emphasizes the pass-
ing game. But this weekend,
that wont be the case. Te
Texas defense has only al-
lowed an average of 140 pass-
ing yards per game, which
ranks second in the Big 12.
On Saturday, Cozart will
use his legs more to make
plays when the Texas second-
ary blankets the Kansas wide
We will be able to put more
pressure on the defensive
ends and see what they do,
Cozart said. We have a great
game plan and were looking
forward to it.
One way Kansas ofen-
sive coordinator John Rea-
gan likes to give Cozart the
chance to run is on the option
plays, which Cozart hasnt
done before this season.
I didnt run the option at
all in high school, Cozart
said. Its diferent for me be-
cause I feel like Im not one of
those types of physical quar-
terbacks to be doing it a lot,
but I can adjust and get better
at it.
In the frst three games,
Cozart and the Kansas run-
ning backs had trouble con-
necting on option plays, but
Cozart said they both take
the blame for that.
It goes hand and hand,
Cozart said. Some of it was
on me, not being downhill
or the back was too close
to me as we were getting in
the pitch phrase. Weve been
working on it a lot this week,
and that is one of our empha-
sis going into this weekend.
Coach Charlie Weis said
Kansas has a great shot of
winning against Texas if the
Kansas defense can keep Tex-
as under 30 points. Te only
way to do that is to play phys-
ical football.
Were trying to play into
a slugfest and it should be a
game in the fourth quarter,
Weis said.
A slugfest involves teams
using their running ability
and physicality to win games.
Weis said he likes the idea of
becoming physical because
he believes his team will win
that battle.
Our defense believes that
if a team is going to line up
and try to get into a slugfest, I
think they are willing to play
that game, Weis said.
Te Jayhawk defense thinks
the Texas ofense will try to
overpower the Kansas defen-
sive line because the Texas
run-frst ofense is averaging
123 rushing yards per game.
Senior defensive tackle
Keon Stowers said the Texas
ofensive line isnt as experi-
enced as the Kansas defen-
sive line, and the Jayhawks
will take advantage of it.
Obviously, we dont have
the best defensive line in
the world, but when you go
against a less experienced
ofensive line, you defnite-
ly have to take advantage of
that, Stowers said.
Texas has a less experienced
ofensive line this season
because Texas coach Char-
lie Strong dismissed its two
starting ofensive tackles,
and its center sufered a sea-
son-ending injury.
Strong suspended ofensive
tackles Kennedy Estelle and
Desmond Harrison for vio-
lating team rules, and senior
ofensive center Danny Espi-
nosa broke his right ankle.
Texas will hurt tremendous-
ly by missing three of its fve
starting ofensive linemen.
Stowers said he cant wait to
line up against the Texas of-
fensive line on Saturday.
Weis said with a lot of Tex-
as ofensive line missing, its
depth on the line will sufer.
Tey are very talented, but
when you look at their ofen-
sive line, and you take their
two starting tackles, they
are gone, its a big diference
when they are not out there,
Weis said. I dont know
when those suspensions are
over, but Im glad its not this
Stowers said the emphasis
is to stay physical the whole
game and force Texas to use
its nonexistent depth on the
ofensive line.
Tats the key to every
game, Stowers said. You
defnitely want to take advan-
tage of that matchup on the
inside to stop the run game.
For the frst time this sea-
son, Kansas gave up less than
100 yards of rushing against
Central Michigan last week-
end. Stowers said Texas and
Central Michigan play a
similar style of ofense, and
the Central Michigan game
helped the team prepare for
Texas and Central Mich-
igan are the two teams that
we face this season that
pound the ball, Stowers said.
Some of the things Central
Michigan did, Texas does the
same thing. Obviously, we
were successful last week, so
we are going to stick to the

Surrounded by Jayhawk defenders, the Central Michigan ball carrier is taken down. Kansas played against Central Michigan on Sept. 20 at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence, winning 24-
10. The Jayhawks will take on Texas this Saturday in Lawrence.

Texas is a
beatable team
this year
Despite the consistent talent
disparity that has existed
between Kansas and Texas
football the past century, a
Kansas win on Saturday is
Tis isnt the same Texas
team as years past. Last season
was the frst time a player from
Texas wasnt selected in the
NFL Draf. Tis is partially
due to competition from other
state teams including Baylor
and Texas A&M who are
recruiting at higher rate than
ever before.
Of to a tough start to the
season, frst-year Longhorn
coach Charlie Strong has torn
down some of the structure
that Mack Brown built, similar
to what Charlie Weis did in his
frst year. Strong has dismissed
nine players so far including
junior starting lef tackle Ken-
nedy Estelle just this week.
Texas sophomore quarter-
back Tyrone Swoopes, who
took the place of former
starter junior David Ash, has
looked far from comfortable in
his frst two starts as a Long-
horn. Reminiscent of Kansas
ofense, it relies on short pass-
es as Swoopes averaged just
5.8 yards on 34 pass attempts
against UCLA two weeks ago.
Usually possessing a vaunted
defense, Texas ranks just
ahead of Kansas in points
surrendered, tied for 106th in
the country.
Weis has underscored how
Kansas is going to have to ac-
cumulate victories by winning
slugfests. Last season in Aus-
tin, the Jayhawks managed to
stay in the game until midway
through the third quarter until
Texas stretched its lead to win
Kansas will have to control
the clock with junior running
back DeAndre Mann and
freshman running back Corey
Avery as it attempted to do
last year with alumni James
Sims. Kansas didnt win the
possession battle last week, but
thats mainly because of the
quick scoring plays by senior
wide receivers Justin McCay
and Tony Pierson.
While sophomore quarter-
back Montell Cozarts running
ability hasnt been otherworld-
ly, registering just 21 rushing
yards on 25 attempts, he has
the ability to make noise
with his feet. Te Longhorns
yielded 99 yards and three
touchdowns to BYUs junior
quarterback, Taysom Hill. If
Cozart develops an afnity for
taking of instead of staying in
the pocket, it might be better
for Kansas.
Te Jayhawks versatile line-
backers have shown remark-
able vertical speed shedding
of blocks. Junior linebacker
Jake Love and senior lineback-
er Ben Heeney were arguably
Kansas best defensive players
last week against Central
Michigan. Texas forte on
ofense is getting their running
backs, junior Jonathan Gray
and senior Malcolm Brown,
in space. Tis matchup bodes
well for Kansas on paper.
However, the luck of Kansas
football has been non-exis-
tent in its dark days and the
gamblers fallacy could be in
full-swing against a deprived
Texas team.
Starting conference play with
an unblemished record and
one win would do wonders
for everyone associated with
its haunted past. It would be
Kansas frst win against Texas
since 1938.
For Kansas football, records
are always subject to get erased
especially in the last fve years.
Breaking the drought against
Texas is doable, but afer all,
its Kansas football.

Predictions for the
Kansas vs. Texas
football game on
By Brian Hillix
The Texas defense is stingy
against the pass, ranking third
in the Big 12 in passing yards al-
lowed. That doesnt bode well for
the Kansas air attack that ranks
last in the conference in passing
yards. This should allow the Long-
horn defense to devote extra atten-
tion to the running game, where
Kansas gains 200 yards per con-
test. While the Longhorn offense is
shaky, it should muster up enough
against a Jayhawk defense that
allows a lot of big plays.
By Blair Sheade
Coach Charlie Weis said the
Jayhawks have a great chance of
winning if they hold Texas under 30
points. I think Kansas will hold Tex-
as to under 30, and the Jayhawks
will nd holes to open up the run-
ning game. The key to the game
is who wins the line of scrimmage
battle, which I think the Jayhawks
will. If Kansas can score 24 points,
its the Jayhawks game to lose.
By Shane Jackson
The Kansas offense has strug-
gled to score at times. Going up
against one of the best defenses,
expect that trend to continue this
Saturday against the Texas Long-
horns. The Longhorns have three
players on the Bednarik Award
Watch List, and are led by one of
the best defensive tackles in the
Big 12 in Malcom Brown. Expect
Montell Cozart and the rest of this
Kansas offense to struggle this
By Stella Liang
The Longhorns are well-rested
and ready for a victory. In their
last outing, they lost a tough, close
game to then No. 12 UCLA. The
Texas defense is tough, especially
against the pass, and the offense
should be more comfortable with
quarterback Tyrone Swoopes after
his two starts and the bye week.
Kansas offense showed improve-
ment last week and should be able
to keep the game close. Kansas
last victory against Texas was 12
matchups ago, in 1938.
By Dan Harmsen
The major strength lies on de-
fense for both squads, particularly
in the secondary. Kansas may be
able to run the ball a bit better
than Texas, but Tyrone Swoopes is
signicantly more accurate than
Montell Cozart. The big difference
will be on the defensive lines. Tex-
as averages about 4.5 sacks per
game to Kansas 1.33. I expect
them to get at least 5 on Saturday,
thwarting some of Kansas offen-
sive possessions. The defense will
hang in, but it wont be enough.

Tigers beat White Sox 6-1, clinch postseason spot
DETROIT Te Detroit Ti-
gers looked dormant with the
bats until a pitch from Chica-
gos Chris Sale hit Victor Mar-
tinez around the back of his
lef shoulder.
Ten tempers fared, the
benches and bullpens emptied
and Sales shutout didnt last
much longer.
Martinez came around to
score the tying run in the sixth
inning, and afer Sale came out
of the game, Chicagos bullpen
was no match for the Tigers.
Detroit won 6-1 on Wednes-
day and clinched a spot in
the postseason when Seattle
lost to Toronto.
Te worst the Tigers can end
up with now is a wild card.
Detroit is trying for its fourth
straight AL Central crown,
and the Tigers took a 1 1/2-
game lead over second-place
Kansas City, with the Royals
playing later Wednesday.
With one out in the sixth
and Chicago up 1-0, Sales frst

troit slugger. Martinez walked
slowly to frst, and the two
started jawing at each other.
Sale appeared to point out to-
ward center feld in agitated
fashion as Martinez went to
Tey were claiming that

little weak that they would hit

thats bad news. Tat just cant
He clearly did it on purpose.
He made it obvious.
Sale didnt accuse the Tigers
of stealing signs aferward, and
he said he wasnt specifcally
gesturing toward center feld.
I was just throwing my arms
up, like you do when you are
upset, the lef-hander said. I
wasnt really trying to control
where they pointed.
Sale appeared to tip his hat
toward the outfeld in the third
inning afer striking out Mar-
Tere was a fan that was just
wearing me out in the bullpen
before the game, telling me
that I wasnt any good, and tell-
ing me how much Victor was
going to hit me, Sale said. So
that was just having some fun
with him.
Justin Verlander (15-12) al-
lowed a run in eight innings
for Detroit.
Sale allowed a run and four
hits in six innings. He struck
out 10 and walked three, be-
coming his franchises career
leader with his 18th game of
at least 10 strikeouts. Ed Walsh
had 17.
But Chicagos slim lead
slipped away afer he hit Mar-

sports editor Blair Sheade is the
only one predicting a Kansas win,
thinking the Jayhawk running game
will make a difference. Everyone
else thinks the Texas defense will
be too tough for the Kansas offense
to muster enough points. No one
thinks the Jayhawks will lose by
more than three touchdowns.

Kansas faces off against
Texas on Saturday
Prediction: Texas 28, Kansas 10


Montell Cozart, So.
Overall, Cozart had an up-and-down nonconference performance. Cozart completed 23 of 33 passes
for two touchdowns and one interception against Central Michigan. An important question this week
is how Cozart will perform against a stout Texas defense looking to take away the short throws.
Corey Avery, Fr.
Running back
Avery continues to show a lot of potential, especially paired alongside DeAndre Mann as a two-head-
ed attack. He caught his rst receiving touchdown against CMU, but only rushed for 35 yards.

Justin McCay, Sr.

Wide receiver
JaCorey Shepherd, Sr.
Shepherd has been shutting down receivers through three games. He intercepted CMU on its last
Jake Love, Jr.
Love came up with back-to-back key stops in the fourth quarter against Central Michigan. He is rst on
the team in tackles for a loss with ve, and second in total tackles with 17.

Tyrone Swoopes, So.

Swoopes has performed well in place of recently retired starter David Ash. Swoopes has thrown for 372
yards and completed 67.7 percent of his pass attempts in his rst two starts.
Johnathan Gray, Jr.
Running back
Gray leads the way in one of the nations most dynamic one-two punches out of the backeld. He aver-
ages 59.3 yards per game so far this season. He has yet to score a touchdown in 2014.

Jaxon Shipley, Sr.

Wide receiver
Shipley has caught 20 balls for 144 yards with zero touchdowns this season. He recently moved up to
fth on the UT all-time receptions list with 179 career receptions. He had a career-high nine catches
for 65 yards against UCLA.
Quandre Diggs, Sr.
With 39 starts, Diggs is the most experienced player on the defensive side of the ball. Diggs is one of
three Texas defensive players on the Bednarik Award Watch List.
Malcom Brown, Jr.
Defensive tackle
Brown recorded 2.5 sacks against BYU which marks just the 10th time since 1998 that a Texas player
has had at least 2.5 sacks in a game. Texas as a team has recorded 13 sacks through three games.

McCay had his best game in a Jayhawk uniform against CMU. He caught a fourth-quarter touchdown
pass that coach Charlie Weis called the turning point. This week, it will be seen if he can become a
consistent option for Cozart.

Volleyball team begins Big
12 play against Oklahoma
Te No. 23 Kansas volleyball
team (12-2) kicks of its Big 12
Conference schedule when it
travels to Norman to take on
Oklahoma (9-4) this Saturday.
Te Jayhawks are coming of a
strong showing at last week-
ends Jayhawk Classic, sweep-
ing their three games at the
Horejsi Family Athletic Center
with relative ease.
Te big question heading
into the season was exactly
how Kansas seven newcom-
ers would mesh with a squad
coming of its best season in
program history, and the early
answer seems to be very well.
Freshman outside hitter
Madison Rigdon has likely
been the most signifcant of
the bunch thus far. Her perfor-
mance last weekend (4.18 kills
per set on a .301 kill percent-
age) was enough to earn her
Big 12 Ofensive Player of the
Week honors, becoming the
frst freshman to do so since
Weve been very pleased
with Madison and how she has
developed through the non-
conference part of our sched-
ule, coach Ray Bechard said.
I dont want to say that she is a
surprise because we knew the
type of talent she would bring
to the table, but with her po-
sition being deep with upper-
classmen, her emergence has
been really good to see.
Freshman setter Ainise Havi-
li and freshman middle block-
er Kayla Cheadle have also
made their presence evident
early in the season. Havili has
proven to be a key component
of the ofense, routinely setting
up the Jayhawks outside hit-
ters with good opportunities at
the net. Her 558 assists (11.16
per set) are third-best in the
Big 12. Cheadle has been im-
pressively consistent thus far;
her .373 kill percentage and 43
blocks (.9 per set) lead all Kan-
sas players. Rigdon and Havili
were the two big names among
Bechards seven newcomers,
but Cheadle is quietly carving
out a niche on this Jayhawk
As for the Sooners, they start-
ed the season of hot, winning
nine of their frst 11 matches,
but theyve dropped their last
two heading into their match-
up with the Jayhawks. Okla-
homa was crushed by Duke
the last time out, dropping the
match in straight sets: 18-25,
15-25, 20-25.
Te Sooners are led by junior
outside hitter Kierra Holst
and sophomore outside hitter
Kimmy Gardner. Holst started
every match for the Sooners in
2013, and leads the team with
148 kills on a .244 kill per-
centage this year. She was the
lone bright spot for Oklahoma
against Duke, registering fve
digs and a team-high 13 kills.
Gardner, a transfer from Mis-
sissippi State, is second among
all starters in both kills (141)
and kill percentage (.305) in
her frst season in Norman.
Te match is scheduled to
begin at 7 p.m. at Oklahomas
McCasland Field House, with
the game being televised on
Fox College Sports Central.

Weve been very pleased

with Madison and how she
has developed through the
nonconference part of our
No. 18 Kansas womens
soccer will play its frst con-
ference games this weekend
in Texas against Baylor (6-
3-1) and TCU (7-3-0). Te
Jayhawks concluded their
nonconference schedule 9-1-
0, and prior to last weekend
were on the longest winning
streak in program history.
While starting on the road
is tough, coach Mark Fran-
cis said the team will be pre-
I was very pleased with
how the team responded last
Sunday (in a 4-0 win over
St. Marys), Francis said. I
think it was important how
we played in the second half.
We got a lot of people into the
game and gave them playing
experience going into confer-
ence play, so thats good.
Not only do the Jayhawks
have better experience on
the pitch, but with their frst
loss under their belts to Mar-
quette, Francis said losing
was something no one was
eager to experience again.
It was a tough game, Fran-
cis said. We pretty much
dominated the second half,
but we just couldnt capitalize
on our chances. It was un-
fortunate, but in some ways
losing kind of wakes you up
a little bit. It makes you real-
ize that winning is a lot more
Despite this loss, the Jay-
hawks made an appearance at
No. 29 in the frst RPI rank-
ings of the season, their high-
est starting rank since 2010.
Te Big 12 made a strong
showing in the ranks with
fve teams making the top 50;
Kansas came in third behind
Texas Tech (9) and West Vir-
ginia (17).
Kansas will travel to Waco,
Texas, for Fridays game,
knowing the Bears are look-
ing to avenge a 2-0 loss to
the Jayhawks last season.
Currently, the Bears are av-
eraging two goals a game and
attempted 15 shots in their
last game against North Tex-
as. Senior forward Ali Kimu-
ra said the team is well aware
of Baylors physicality during
games, and the Jayhawks are
keeping that in mind as they
We really need to fnish our
chances, play our game and
not get sucked into the way
they play, Kimura said.
Te Jayhawks will remain
in Texas over the weekend to
take on TCU Sunday afer-
noon, a team that is currently
on a six-game win streak and
will be carrying confdence
with them onto the feld.
Were really excited, Kimu-
ra said. Im personally really
excited for the competition.
Its defnitely a diferent level
when you get to Big 12 play.
Were looking forward to it.
In order to succeed this
weekend and add two wins to
the Jayhawks record, Francis
said Kansas has to keep doing
what its been doing for the
last 10 games. While there
are a few things to improve
on this week in practice, the
Jayhawks have to maintain
the same level of intensity
and play entering conference
Im looking forward to the
start of conference, Francis
said. Nonconference is fun,
you know, but with confer-
ence its a little bit diferent.
Tere is a little more at stake.
Tat pressure is good.

Mens golf aims for
top-three nish
Fresh of a top-two fnish at
the Ram Masters Invitational,
the Kansas mens golf team is
seeking its third straight top-
three fnish of the season.
Kansas will play at the 54-
hole Badger Invitational in
Madison, Wis., over the week-
end. Te feld consists of 14
teams and, according to coach
Jamie Bermel, it will face some
of the best talent it has seen so
far this season.
Tere are four or fve teams
that are pretty good (in the
tournament) and thats some-
thing we dont see ofen, Ber-
mel said.
Bermel said the season has
lived up to his expectations so
far, but he would have taken a
diferent result in last weeks
Were about right on track,
Bermel said. Last week we
were paired in the fnal group,
we were in the lead with about
eight holes to go and just
couldnt quite fnish.
While the team is still ripe
with potential, the growing
pains have still persisted with
its young roster.
I think weve got more depth
from top and bottom. I think
our consistency is a little bet-
ter, Bermel said. Were still a
little young, we need to elim-
inate some mental mistakes
during the rounds.
Bermel has been content
with most of the team, but ju-
nior Connor Peck has caught
his eye.
[Peck] has been of to a pret-
ty good start, Bermel said.

think hes played great, but hes

Ranaudo pitched seven strong
innings, and Garin Cecchi-
ni hit his frst major league
home run to help the ffh-
place Boston Red Sox beat the
fourth-place Tampa Bay Rays
11-3 on Wednesday night.
Te Red Sox twice batted
around, scoring fve runs in
the fourth inning and four
more in the sixth, when they
drew fve walks three with
the bases loaded.
Ranaudo (4-3) allowed two
runs on six hits and a walk,
striking out two to snap a
three-game losing streak. Te
victory was the 69th of the
season for the defending AL
East and World Series cham-
pions, who need one more
win to beat their total from
2012 their only season un-
der Bobby Valentine.
Jake Odorizzi (11-13) al-
lowed fve runs on seven hits,
walking three and striking out
three in three-plus innings. In
all, six Rays pitchers allowed
10 hits and nine walks.
It was 2-all in the bottom of
the fourth with two on and
nobody out when Mookie
Betts singled to load the bas-
es and chase Odorizzi. Xan-
der Bogaerts singled to drive
in two runs and Daniel Nava
doubled to bring home two
more. Brandon Gomes got the
next two batters before walk-
ing Cecchini on a wild pitch
that moved Nava to third.
Another wild pitch allowed
Nava to score, and then Rus-
ney Castillo walked before
Gomes got Bryce Brentz on
a grounder to end the inning.
RAYS: SS Yunel Escobar, who
sprained his lef knee, was sent
back to Florida for an MRI.
He will be out the remainder
of the season. ... Ryan Hani-
gan was in the original lineup
at catcher, but he was a little
sore afer hitting something
of his toe in Tuesday nights
game. ... During the fourth
inning, C Curt Casali took a
foul ball of his mask and lef
the game and was replaced by
Jose Molina.
RED SOX: DH David Ortiz
rested a sore lef wrist. ... 3B
Will Middlebrooks missed
his second straight game af-
ter spraining his right hand
during batting practice on
Tuesday. ... 1B Mike Napo-
li missed his sixth game in a

Te teams wrap up the
three-game series on Turs-
day when Allen Webster (4-
3) takes the mound against
Rays RHP Jeremy Hellickson
(1-4). Ten the Red Sox say
goodbye to their World Series
championship defense and
to Derek Jeter as well with
a season-ending three-game
series against the New York

and company this week?

Wescott: A running game
that is still very limited by the
fact that Texas is playing a red-
shirt freshman center who is
still getting used to making all
those calls and making sure
that he identifes everything.
Te ofensive line as a whole is
still very inexperienced, so Id
expect Texas to do mostly what
theyve done through the frst
several weeks. Teyve moved
the pocket a lot for Swoopes
so the protection concerns are
not as big, which simplifes a
lot of the reads for him. When
they tried to drop back and
pass this season theyve had
some troubles, especially at
right tackle against UCLA.
Te longhorns do want to
get a bit more vertical in the
passing game, but Im not sure
how much they are going to
be able to do that. Swoopes
has been very accurate,
surprisingly. He has struggled
with inaccuracy throughout
his career at High School and
early on at Texas. He is only
averaging 5.7 yards per pass,
which is an extremely low
number. Very much operating
on short passes. Tey havent
been able to produce big plays,
particularly with the running
game, but also with the passing
game. Kansas should be able
to drop back in coverage and
keep everything in front of
DAN: Malcolm Brown, Jordan
Hicks, Quandre Diggs. Tere
may be a chance all three of
those names will make a Pro-
Bowl roster. Charlie Weis said
at his press-conference on
Tuesday that Brown is one of
the best players he has ever
seen. Texas likes to get afer the
quarterback, with almost four
and half sacks per game, good
for second in the conference,
which will present problems
for a young Montell Cozart. Is
this defense one of the tops in
the Big 12?
WESCOTT: I think the Texas
defense has the potential to
be one of the best defenses
in the Big 12. Teyve played
two games that have been
pretty good for the most
part. Te BYU game was a
pretty signifcant disaster and
they still had some major
breakdowns to swing the
game against UCLA missed
tackles on a long 58-yard run
afer half-time, getting beat
on a double move afer giving
up a long punt return. Tey
had a really high-probability
of winning that game against
Te defensive line has played
pretty well as you mentioned.
Malcolm Brown is kind of in
a contract-year as a junior,
hes likely going to leave, hes
married and has a family now,
hes been really impressive. Te
linebackers have been a little
bit better than the last several
years, but still sufer from
some hesitation and missteps,
even with Jordan Hicks, and
the secondary has had a few
recurrences of tackling issues.
By the end of the year, this
Texas unit could come together
and be one of the best units in
the conference, but right now
they are still working out their
growing pains. Teyve dialed
up a lot of blitzes from a lot
of diferent angles didnt
allow as many fre zones as
Manny Diaz did before, but
they are trying to get afer the
quarterback this week.
DAN: Lastly, how do you see
this matchup unfolding on
WESCOTT: For a Texas team
that has had problems showing
up already this season, even
with the new coaching staf,
I think that makes it a little
hard to predict. I expect a low
scoring game. I dont think
Texas can produce enough
big plays to really be able to
blow Kansas out of the water. I
think it will be fairly close. Ill
go with 24-13 Texas. I think
the Longhorns ofense will be
able to make a few more plays
against a Kansas defense that
defnitely gave up some big
ones against Duke, but I think
the Texas defense plays a pretty
solid game this weekend.

Kansas has only won two
of the 13 contests, winning
them in 1901 and 1938 in
Lawrence. Te Longhorns
have outscored the Jayhawks
by an average of 42.8-14.4
points per game in the 11
matchups of Big 12 play. In
Big 12 Conference opening
games, Texas is 15-3 with
its only losses coming from
Oklahoma State in 1997 and
Kansas State twice in 1998
and 2007.

You read that right. Kansas
is only one win away from
last years win total. Te
Jayhawks are doing better
than the Longhorns as Texas
just sufered back-to-back
losses. Te Longhorns
average 3.5 yards per carry,
and the Jayhawks average 4.6.
If Kansas controls the ball
on the ground and keeps its
defense of the feld, it might
surprise the Longhorns at the
fnal whistle.

Strong has dealt with more
than just losses with his new
team. On Tuesday, Strong
dismissed junior ofensive
tackle Kennedy Estelle, who
started last season, for an
undisclosed rules violation.
Estelle is the ninth player
kicked of the team so far
this season. Strong chuckled
when reporters asked him if
he is too hard on his team.
I give them a lot of chances
to get it right, Strong told
reporters. Kansas will gladly
welcome the Texas backups.

Te Texas starting ofen-
sive line from last season
is gone. Tree of the fve
graduated, one was dis-
missed and another sufered
a season-ending injury. Te
most experienced ofensive
lineman is lef guard Sedrick
Flowers, who will start in
only his ffh career game.
Getting to the quarterback
quick and taking control of
the line of scrimmage early is
key for Kansas.

Texas is known as a power-
house in football. KU coach
Charlie Weis told the media
on Tuesday, I would rather
have played them three weeks
ago. He added, It would
have been nice to play them
for the spring game and be
done with them. Te Jay-
hawks have a chance against
Texas because its still early
in the season and Texas isnt
settled into its routine yet.

Bieler strikes twice, leads Sporting KC to 3-0 win
Argentinian striker Claudio
Bieler came to Sporting Kan-
sas City in 2013, and led the
team in goals on its way to be-
coming Major League Soccer
champions last season. Tat
all changed when striker Dom
Dwyer came on to capture the
limelight in 2014, forcing Bieler
to take a backseat.
But when the opportunity
arises, Bieler comes through. In
Kansas Citys 3-0 CONCACAF
Champions League (CCL) win
against Nicaraguas Real Estel
on Tuesday, Bieler netted two
goals and led the ofense all
I try to take advantage of all
the minutes the coach allows
me to play, Bieler said through
a translator afer the win. In
the week, I work hard, day-by-
day, hopefully to make sure that
the coach knows I am available
and ready to go.
Bielers frst goal came in the
13th minute when defender
Seth Sinovic made a run down
to the lef side of the box and
swung a low cross into the pen-
alty area. Bieler timed his run
perfectly, controlled the cross
and put it through without a
He got another chance in the
28th minute when midfelder
Graham Zusi drew the goal-
keeper and eased a ball to Biel-
er, who couldnt put it into an
open net.
Claudio, 9,999 out of 10,000
tries, puts that in, Zusi said. I
was just shocked he didnt put
that in.
It didnt matter though, as
Real Estel failed to put together
any kind of an attack in a game
it had to win to stay in conten-
tion in group play. Afer leading
1-0 at half, Bieler was knocked
down in the box and made his
penalty kick count for a 2-0
lead in the 70th minute. Bieler
was thriving with Dwyer out of
the lineup, and has three goals
in his last two appearances
both wins.
He comes to training every-
day, he doesnt mess around, he
works hard, and hes been very
professional about taking his
opportunities when they come,
coach Peter Vermes said. He
was an important part of the
team in last years success, and
were going to need him again
at some point this year as well.
Kansas Citys third goal came
from substitute Sal Zizzo late,
as Eric Kronberg defended
between the pipes for a clean
sheet in his frst start since in-
juring his hand in practice afer
a July 6 match.
Te game was as chippy as
it gets in the CCL, with eight
cautions dished out, including
fve to Sporting KC. One of
those came to Zusi, who will
now miss the next CCL match
against Deportivo Saprissa on
Oct. 23.
I thought it was rather sof as
my frst foul of the game, Zusi
said of his caution. For me,
its not a yellow card. It never

felt bad that I wouldnt be there
with the guys.
Sporting KC needs only a
win, draw or a loss by one goal
against Saprissa to advance into
the next round, and could still
get through with a loss by two
goals, depending on the score-
Tough Sporting KC will miss
Zusi in the match against Sap-

Kronberg back in goal. Afer
missing the game against De-
portivo Saprissa on Tursday
due to a mishap in fling paper-
work with CONCACAF, Kro-
nberg only made three saves,
but claimed the teams frst

bit of a question mark for the
short turnaround game Friday
against the New England Rev-
olution, but sounds ready to be
in goal long-term.

Last time out: Defeated Real Estel 3-0 on Tuesday

Player trending up: Toni Dovale - The Spaniard
is nally coming into form for Sporting KC after
arriving in the spring. Hes notched three goals
in Champions League competition and picked up
an assist on a beautiful cross on Tuesday against
Real Estel. Hell continue to be a major contributor
from the wing.
Player trending down: None - Every one of the
starters including some starting-worthy players
on the bench are really shaping into form as
the seasons home stretch approaches. Outscoring
opponents 10-1 over its last three matches, Sport-
ing KC doesnt have many weak spots.
Looking ahead: With Champions League group
play nearly clinched, Sporting KC can shift its
focus to the home stretch of the MLS season. The
Revolution defeated Sporting KC twice already this
season by a combined 5-1 score, but neither of
those games were at Sporting Park. Sporting plays
rst-place D.C. United on Oct. 10 in a game that
could determine the Eastern Conference champion.
Interesting stat: Kronberg had seven clean sheets
in goal in 17 starts across all competitions this
season before breaking his hand, six short of Jim-
my Nielsens 13 shutouts in 34 games last season.
Kronberg also has allowed only .88 goals per game
to match Nielsens 2013 rate. Its clear that Kro-
nberg though not yet a Sporting KC legend like
Nielsen has washed away supporters worries
in goal after Nielsen retired after 2013.

he past month has
been a messy one
for the NFL as
countless cases of domestic
violence have made recent
headlines across the country.
Such scandals involving Ray
Rice, Adrian Peterson, Greg
Hardy, Jonathan Dwyer and
Ray McDonald have caused
coaches and fans alike to
question the personal behav-
ior policy of the NFL and,
ultimately, the man in charge.
NFL Commissioner Roger
Goodell made several state-
ments regarding these issues,
but they are all starting to
sound the same. Mistakes
happen, Im sorry, and
I got it wrong have been
repeated over and over, but
many feel that, in this case,
Im sorry just isnt good
enough. And theyre right.
As the commissioner of
the NFL, it is Goodells
responsibility to handle mis-
conduct cases and determine
appropriate consequences for
coaches and players. But who
gets to determine appropriate
consequences for Goodell
afer being caught in the act
and then openly admitting
his wrongs? Its not small
mistakes were talking about
either. It is a series of several
big mistakes that, if not
handled properly, could ruin
the reputation of the NFL
around the world.
If it was a coach, player,
or employee of the NFL in
question, would a, Ive made
a mistake, Im sorry, Ill get
it right next time be good
enough for
Goodell? No.
So then why
should he get to
use those exact
same phrases
to excuse his
own behaviors?
Does he expect
that we will be
satisfed with a
simple apology?
Te NFL has
handed out
some heavy consequences to
those who have been brought
under the spotlight, even
those who havent been of-
cially convicted. If the NFL
holds its players accountable,
then keeping Goodell on
afer his multiple errors in
judgment would behypo-
Goodell is on the hot seat
and has been put under a
lot of pressure to resign as
commissioner. It is clear that
something needs to drastical-
ly change in the NFL before
the organizations reputation
is tarnished. Teres a lot
of work to be done. But is
Goodell the right person for
the job? He has created quite
a mess for the league, but he
may not be the right person
to clean it up.
Its time for someone new
to come in and try to put
things back together. Te
NFL needs a clean slate, and
the only way to achieve that
is with a new man in charge.
Te reputation of the league
is on the brink of disaster,
and Goodell just isnt the
right person to fx it. Hes lost
too much respect from his
fans and his teams to make
it right on his own. He can
certainly contribute, but he
cant be the number one guy

efore thinking if
NFL commissioner
Roger Goodell will
be removed from his throne,
you must remember what the
NFL is really all about. Call it
what you will, but the most
proftable sports league in the
world is all about revenue.
Revenue is the NFLs blonde-
haired, blue-eyed daughter on
prom night, and of-the-feld
happenings are nothing but the
ugly stepchild at best.
Te league brought in $10
billion in 2013 and is shooting
for $16.1 billion by 2018, both
on track with Goodells goal
of $25 million by 2025. With
money like that, the NFL can
do no evil. Te league has a
massive revenue streamline
from its supporters, which
hasnt slowed in the wake of
the leagues handling of domes-
tic violence cases.
A recent poll by NBC News
showed that fans the
leagues largest source of reve-
nue will continue to watch
their teams every Sunday.
Tough 57 percent of football
fans disapprove of the NFLs
handling of domestic violence,
86 percent said they wouldnt
change the amount of football
they watch, while 11 percent
said they were less likely to
watch. If those 11 percent
keep their word and refrain
from Americas most signif-
cant sport, thats pocket change
for the NFL.
Only 29 percent of fans be-
lieve Goodell should be forced
to resign. Its likely that less
than 29 percent of the leagues
32 owners would agree with
that. Simply put: Not enough
people who are substantial to
the leagues revenue stream are
calling for Goodells head, and
maybe for good reason.
Hes addressed player health
and safety, medical needs and
pensions of retired players,
revenue sharing, stadium con-
struction and, most recently, a
new performance enhancing
drug policy, as well as interna-
tional develop-
ment, primarily
in London. He
also ended the
referees labor
dispute in 2012
when it could go
on no longer, and
he agreed to a
10-year Collec-
tive Bargaining
Agreement with
the NFL Players
Association in 2011.
Te owners are satisfed, and
thats what matters. Tey are
satisfed with the leverage they
were given in the new CBA,
and with the job Goodell is
doing, evident in his salary
over the past two seasons.
Before the 2011 player lockout,
Goodells salary averaged $11
million per season. Over the
past two years afer the new
CBA, hes made $36.5 million
per year. Te NFL is not a
judicial system, and Goodell
is not a judge. Te NFL is
a business and Goodell is a
Goodell should not be
applauded for how he has
handled the domestic violence
cases, but its time we move on.
Goodells skills and under-
standing of the workings of
the NFL have led the league to
tremendous growth and have
set a precedent for professional
sports leagues

espite winning two Super
Bowls, quarterback Eli
Manning has always been
somewhat overlooked, at least while
leading the Giants to multiple winning
seasons. However, the spotlight on
Manning intensifed last year, as he
put up some of the worst numbers of
his career. In 2013, Manning threw
27 interceptions, which was fve more
than any other quarterback, and he
ranked 32nd in the NFL in completion
percentage. It was far and away Man-
nings worst season in which he started
all 16 games.
In January 2014, the New York
Giants brought in a new ofensive
coordinator, Ben McAdoo, in hopes
of reviving Mannings career. McAdoo
quickly emphasized the need of the
quarterback to get rid of the ball early
and to make quick, precise throws,
something that had never been a
strong suit of Manning.
Somewhat predictably, Manning
struggled to start the 2014 season
in the new system, throwing four
interceptions in his frst two starts.
Te New York Giants began the year
0-2, prompting some fans to go as far
as publicly burning their Manning
jerseys. Many questioned whether the
33 year old was nearing the end of his
However, things looked dramatically
diferent last Sunday, as Manning took
a major step forward. For the frst time
in seven games, Manning didnt turn
the ball over, and as a result, the Giants
defeated the Houston Texans by 13
points. Manning managed
to complete 75 percent of his
passes, which he hadnt done
in a regular season game since
Dec. 1, 2013. Afer the game,
Giants coach Tom Coughlin
said Manning played an out-
standing mental game.
Manning also noted he had
made some improvements
from the beginning of the year. I
thought last week we made some
steps to get better, Manning said in
the postgame press conference. Tis
week was even stronger.
Mannings strong performance
against Houston carried far more
weight than that of a typical game.
Many in New York had been calling
for the Giants to start backup quarter-
back Ryan Nassib in Mannings place.
Nassib secured the backup quarter-
back job in New York afer a tremen-
dous preseason, where he was third in
NFL passing yards with 588 and tied
for frst in passing
touchdowns with
Hes a worker, a
grinder, and doesnt
have a lot of emotion,
whether it be good or
bad, said Coughlin of
Nassib in an interview
with the New York Post.
Many felt and still feel that
Nassib is a better ft for McAdoos
ofensive system, considering he is
the more mobile of the two, but for
now, the Giants will remain Mannings
team to lead.
Eli can [still] get it done, said Gi-
ants wide receiver Victor Cruz. It has
taken some time for all of us.
Manning will have the chance to
prove he can indeed run a successful
ofense tonight when the Giants take
on the Redskins.

14th consecutive season, Ryan
Goins drove in the only run
of the game and the Toronto
Blue Jays pushed Seattle closer
to playof elimination, beating
the slumping Mariners 1-0
Wednesday night.
Buehrle (13-10) allowed
three hits, walked one and
struck out 10, one shy of his
season high. He lef to his sec-
ond standing ovation of the
night afer Chris Taylors lead-
of single in the ninth.
Aaron Sanchez came on and
picked of pinch runner James

outs for his third save in as

played in a brisk 1 hour, 59
Te Mariners lost their ffh
straight and have dropped
nine of 12. Seattle had inched
closer in the wild card race
when Oakland lost to the An-
gels Wednesday afernoon, but
the defeat dropped them three
games back with four to play.
Buehrle had 194 innings on
the season coming in, and
reached 200 by striking out
Dustin Ackley looking for the
fnal out of the sixth. Coun-
try music played as Buehrles
achievement was noted on the
scoreboard, and the crowd of
16,836 rose for a standing ova-
tion. Buehrle accepted con-
gratulations from his team-
mates before coming out of the
dugout for a brief curtain call.
Its very rare, manager
John Gibbons said of Buehr-
les streak before the game. It
tells you that he stays healthy
and keeps you in games. Hes
a pretty special guy, on and of
the feld. We could use a few
more of him.
Hall of Famers Don Sutton

1980, but both pitchers saw
their streaks snapped by the

10 things to look for at
Mondays Chiefs game
Te Kansas City Chiefs (1-2)
will be in the national spot-
light on Sept. 29 for their only
Monday Night Football game
of the season. Tey take on the
New England Patriots (2-1) at
7:15 p.m. Here are 10 things to
watch out for in the matchup:
1. Noise record - Te Kansas
City Chiefs will try to regain a
world record they previously
owned. Te Guinness World
Record for the loudest crowd
roar at an outdoor stadium
now belongs to the Seattle
Seahawks at 137.6 decibels.
Kansas City set the record with
137.5 decibels against the Oak-
land Raiders last season.
2. Rebounding at home -
Te Chiefs were humiliated at
Arrowhead Stadium against
the average Tennessee Titans
in the teams home opener,
which neutralized the crowd
noise. Kansas City will need a
much better performance to
hang with New England and
keep the crowds energy up.
3. Talented tight ends - Both
teams rely heavily on their
tight ends. New England tight
end Rob Gronkowski leads
all Patriot receivers with two
touchdowns, and Kansas City
tight end Travis Kelce leads the
team with 166 receiving yards.
4. New Englands
league-leading defense -
Te Patriot defense allows a
league-low 168.7 passing yards
per game, which isnt good for
a Chiefs ofense that struggles
in the passing game.
5. Passing woes - With Kan-
sas City averaging 197.7 pass-
ing yards per game and New
England averaging 196.3, both
teams are among the leagues
worst in the category. Te
Chiefs rank No. 26 and the Pa-
triots rank No. 27.
6. Return of the speedsters
- Two of the teams fastest
players, running backs Ja-
maal Charles and DeAnthony
Tomas, are likely to return
from injury. Charles sat out
the last two games with a high
ankle sprain while Tomas, a
rookie, has been out the entire
regular season nursing a ham-
string injury.
7. Kansas Citys running
success - Especially with
Charles likely returning from
injury, the Chiefs will have
an advantage in the running
game. Knile Davis, Charles
backup, ranks seventh in the
NFL with 214 total rushing
yards, and that came without
playing much in the season
opener. New England running
back Stevan Ridley is among
the leagues worst averaging 3.4
yards per carry.
8. Turnover disparity - Kan-
sas City ranks worst in the NFL
in turnover diferential (-5)
while New England ranks frst
(+6). Te Chiefs havent forced
a turnover the entire year.
9. Receivers needed - A big
reason for each teams pass-
ing struggles involve a lack
of depth at the receiver posi-
tion. Beyond Julian Edelman,
the Patriots dont have a wide
receiver with more than six
receptions on the year. Te
Chiefs dont have a wide re-
ceiver with more than 12 re-
ceptions on the season. Don-
nie Avery has 12 and Dwayne
Bowe is second with six.
10. Decline of Tom Brady?
- Usually lighting up the stats
sheet, New England quarter-
back Tom Bradys quarterback
rating of 82.9 places him at No.
23 among qualifed NFL quar-

Te other is No. 25 Kansas

er test this Saturday when

non-conference play.
I thought it was awfully
good, Kansas State coach
Bill Snyder said. We proba-
bly would not have gotten all
of that if we did not turn the
ball over down there. (But) I
thought that all of our young-
sters played really well and
played within the system.
Perhaps it shouldnt be so
surprising that the Wildcats
handled Auburns vaunted
ground game: Historically,
Snyders teams have limited
the run quite well.
Only two of his last 14 have
fnished outside the top 60
in rush defense roughly
speaking, the top half of FBS.
Twelve teams were in the top
40, and six inside the top 20.
Snyder said assign-
ment-sound, disciplined
football allowed his defense
to excel against the No. 5 Ti-
gers, a shared characteristic
with his defensive units of the
It takes some patience with
some of the young guys that
like to fy around and make
tackles, Snyder said. Te
added time I think helped.
Coach (Blake) Seiler did a
really nice job with our de-
fensive ends because there
was a lot of pressure on them
to play well in that ballgame
with so many responsibilities
that they had.
Kansas State made Auburns
ofense punt on nearly half
of its drives, and caused all
kinds of problems on third
down for a team that was
converted 60 percent of its
No defense has really been
able to do that, said Kansas
State quarterback Jake Wa-
ters, who goes against those
guys in most practices. Im
not sure what they did dif-
ferent, but they played so
hard and were fying around
and the crowd got them into
it, that played a factor. But
they went out and did their
assignments and thats what
weve been seeing in practice
all along.
Afer sitting for the major-
ity of games against Stephen
F. Austin and Iowa State,
Dakorey Johnson made his
frst-career start. Te junior
college transfer provided a
spark for the defense, giving
it a more versatile and athletic
front seven.
He had six tackles and an
interception, and was voted
Big 12 defensive player of the
He runs well and that is a
beneft, Snyder said. It was
a matter of him being able to
adapt to the system and un-
derstand the responsibilities
and having the discipline to
carry out the responsibilities
like we like, and he has gotten
better at it and it has paid of
for him.
Now, the task is to carry
over that success from Au-
burn to UTEP for Johnson
and the rest of the guys on the
Kansas State defense.

back Dante Barnett to score a touchdown during the rst half of the

Barnes catch lift
Rockies over Padres, 3-2
Stubbs hit a tiebreaking home
run leading of the eighth and
lef felder Brandon Barnes
robbed Rene Rivera of a ty-
ing shot in the bottom of the
inning to lead the Colora-
do Rockies to a 3-2 victory
against the San Diego Padres
on Tuesday night.
Te Padres, who were try-
ing to extend their winning
streak to a season-high six
games, were assured of their
fourth straight losing season.
San Diego (75-82) can still
fnish with its best record in
three seasons. Te team went
76-86 in 2012 and 2013.
Stubbs homered on the frst
pitch from Dale Tayer (4-4)
into the Jack Daniels party
deck atop the right-feld wall,
his 15th. It was the frst run
Tayer allowed in nine out-
Rymer Liriano was shaken
up afer slamming into the
wall trying to make the catch
but remained in the game.
Rivera sent a high drive
to lef opening the Padres
eighth, but Barnes leaped to
make the catch.
With the potential tying run
on second base and two outs
in the eighth, Rockies sec-
ond baseman DJ LeMahieu
made a nice diving stab of
Alexi Amaristas grounder
and threw him out to end the
NL batting leader Justin
Morneau went 1 for 4 with
an RBI single to drop to .319,
two percentage points ahead
of Pittsburghs Josh Harrison,
who also went 1 for 4.
Juan Nicasio (6-6) allowed
one hit in a scoreless inning
for the win. LaTroy Hawkins
pitched the ninth for his 23rd
save in 26 chances.
Rockies lefy Jorge De La
Rosa had allowed only three
hits through fve scoreless
innings when the Padres tied
it at 2 in the sixth with three
straight two-out hits.
De La Rosa allowed a lead-
of single to Jedd Gyorko be-
fore striking out Rivera and
Yasmani Grandal. Tommy
Medica singled before Liria-
no and Amarista each had an
RBI base hit.
Padres lefy Robbie Erlin
lasted four innings, allowing
two runs and six hits. He was
making his second start since
missing four months with a
sore elbow. He allowed RBI
singles by Morneau in the
third and LeMahieu in the
West Virginia fell fat late twice
on a national stage over the
frst month of the season, and
coach Dana Holgorsen wants
to use a bye week to better po-
sition the Mountaineers for a
solid run in the Big 12.
Coming of a 45-33 loss to
No. 4 Oklahoma, Holgorsen
will work on some of the same
problems that have plagued
the Mountaineers for years
an up-tempo ofense that
sometimes sputters and the
occasional meltdowns on de-
fense and special teams.
Avoiding those meltdowns
could make the diference be-
tween competing in the Big 12
and becoming the frst West
Virginia team in 22 years not
to go to a bowl in back-to-back
At least Holgorsen believes
the problems can be fxed.
Tat has to do with his roster
being older and more mature
compared to last year when the
Mountaineers went 4-8.
I do like what the attitude
is, Holgorsen said. I like how
theyre attacking everything
that were asking them to do.
In two double-digit losses,
the Mountaineers stayed close
most of the game with No. 3
Alabama in the season opener
and with Oklahoma.
Nobody was happy about
coming up a little bit short a
couple games against what I
consider the best two teams in
the country, Holgorsen said.
With that said, we cant feel
sorry for ourselves or pout. We
have to move forward.
Te teams that were going
to be playing are going to con-
tinue to improve, so we need to
do the same thing.
Te ofense amassed more
than 600 yards in wins over
Towson and Maryland, then
couldnt fnd the end zone in
the second half against Okla-
homa until afer the Sooners
had scored three touchdowns.
Te Mountaineers had turn-
overs on two of their six sec-
ond-half possessions.
In order for us to be able to
win that game against a Top 5
opponent, then we needed to
be able to score a couple more
touchdowns, which we didnt,
Holgorsen said. Why? I dont
know. Its a whole bunch of
things not making guys
miss, not fnishing blocks, not
calling the right plays.
Te Mountaineers have al-
lowed touchdowns on punt
or kickof returns the last two
games. Tere also have been
mixed results on defense fol-
lowing the promotion of Tony
Gibson to defensive coordina-
tor the teams fourth in four
years along with the hiring
of former longtime Penn State
assistant Tom Bradley and a
switch to a 3-3-5 scheme.
Despite shutting out Towson,
the Mountaineers are allowing
29 points and 404 yards per
game, both among the worst
in the Big 12. West Virginia is
one of only 12 teams nationally
that has yet to recover an op-
ponents fumble.
Afer the Mountaineers inter-
cepted Trevor Knight in Okla-
homa territory in the third
quarter, Clint Trickett threw
an interception on West Vir-
ginias ensuing possession.
One play doesnt make the
diference in a game, Hol-
gorsen said. It did, however,
suck the momentum out of ev-
erybody at that point in time,
which is unfortunate.
Te Mountaineers (2-2,
0-1 Big 12) are of until Oct.
4 when they play Kansas in
Morgantown. Te Jayhawks
snapped a 27-game Big 12 los-
ing streak in last years 31-19
Miserable performance,
Holgorsen said. Ive been
watching it for two days and
want to puke.
