With colder temperatures and
a abundance of high-calorie sea-
sonable foods, many students find
themselves exercising less and
eating more. For Lauren Ferris, a
graduate student from Shawnee,
staying healthy is a trick of avoid-
ing treats during the fall season.
“Fall is my favorite time of the
year, and I love pumpkin-flavored
food, but it’s not always healthy,”
Ferris said. “So I just make sure to
eat in moderation.”
When Ferris does indulge in
fall treats, she makes sure to bal-
ance it out with exercise. And as
the weather becomes colder, Ferris
notices less students working out
at the Ambler Recreation Center,
where she works as a KU Fit
“We start to see lower num-
bers of participants in the exercise
classes because students are busier
with schoolwork and involved in
group activities,” Ferris said.
While students spend more time
indoors during fall, they are more
likely to eat fattening snacks that
come with the holidays, said Ken
Sarber, Peer Health Education
Adviser for the University.
“Most people understand that
the pies, candy and other desserts
are loaded with unhealthy calories,”
Sarber said. “But often we forget
that a drink like the apple ciders,
lattes and hot chocolates can also
contain 300 plus calories that can
lead to unwanted pounds.”
Sarber said a student’s visit home
is often when these foods are most
easily eaten, something Stephen
Opskar, a junior from Derby, can
relate to.
“I don’t keep junk food around,
but it’s worse when I’m at my par-
ents’ house during breaks,” Opskar
Wanting to maintain a healthy
diet, Opskar prefers to only buy
food that is good for him.
“If you don’t have high fat foods
around, it’s a lot easier not to eat
them,” Opskar said.
Opskar stays fit by lifting weights
every day as well as biking to cam-
pus, which becomes more difficult
during the winter months.
So as long as students continue
exercising, Ferris said eating a few
trick-or-treats should not be a con-
“It’s OK to have a candy bar, just
don’t have six,” Ferris said. “It’s all
about balancing your diet.”

Meaghan Moody, a senior from
Chicago, hopes to spend spring
break working on her senior thesis
in London. Studying the Gothic
literary period as part of her degree
in English, Moody is vying for the
Undergraduate Research Award
worth $1,000 to fund her trip and
expand the scope of her research
“I’ll be able to have the actual
documents in my hands to study,”
Moody said. “I will be looking at
motifs that transcend Gothic litera-
ture even in today’s literature. It’ll
provide fascinating context.”
John Augusto, Director of Center
for Undergraduate Research, said
the UGRA has been around for 25
years at the University. The purpose
of the award develops students’
interest in research.
“Students do research for a
senior thesis, to help them get ready
for graduate school or a career or
just because they want to discover
something new,” Augusto said. “The
program is for those students, who
for a number of reasons, want more
from their KU experience than just
doing well in the classroom.”
With applications due Nov. 16,
Augusto hopes more than 30 schol-
arships will be awarded for the
Spring 2013 semester.
Christie Van Allen, a senior from
Clearwater, received the award last
year. This assisted her project of
synthesizing environmentally
friendly organic compound by-
Van Allen works in the Organic
Research for 15 hours per week.
Through the application process,
Van Allen gained valuable experi-
ence in writing research grant pro-
posals that can help her with future
“The UGRA program taught me
a lot about preparing my research,”
Van Allen said. “My hope is to get
my work published in part with the
other graduate students’ research.”
Focusing more time on research
and less time working a job is the
reason Hunter Finch, a senior from
Los Angeles, hopes to receive the
UGRA next spring. Finch is already
preparing for his sociology senior
thesis, which will focus on how
masculinity in film has changed
since the 1940s.
Casey Pederson, a junior from
Clay Center, already spends five
hours a week researching in the
Clinical Child Psychology Lab. As
a UGRA applicant, Pederson hopes
to gain more research experience,
which is vital for admittance into a
graduate psychology program.
“I want to look at different types
of aggression and how they cor-
relate to conduct problems in chil-
dren, and parenting factors that
contribute,” Pederson said. “The
program definitely jumpstarted me
to develop my research project.”

Only one in 10 students from a
low-income background will grad-
uate from college. Eight in 10 other
students will.
That statistic comes from Teach
for America, an organization that
wants to change the odds for dis-
advantaged students.
Teach for America places college
graduates in teaching jobs in low-
income areas, and the TFA stu-
dent group on campus is recruiting
graduating seniors. Applicants do
not need education degrees to par-
ticipate in Teach for America.
Teach for America wants to
raise students’ standardized test
scores and hire teachers who want
the challenge of teaching in low-
income areas.
Junior Megan McCloskey, a TFA
campus campaign coordinator,
said the ideal teacher for Teach for
America is a recent college gradu-
ate with a high GPA and a lead-
ership presence on campus. The
students TFA hires sign a two-year
commitment to the program.
“We feel as though if you can
lead a group on campus, then that
leadership will really help you in
the classroom,” McCloskey said.
The organization seeks a broad
range of applicants. Hired teach-
ers complete a summer training
program focusing on strategies for
teaching students from low-income
backgrounds. TFA has five applica-
tion deadlines for graduating col-
lege students throughout the year,
with the next one on Nov. 2.
TFA serves 750,000 kindergar-
ten through 12th grade students
in 46 low-income regions across
the United States. Suraj Keshary,
a senior from Overland Park and
a TFA campus campaign coordi-
nator, said the organization’s goal
is to prepare students for college.
However, teachers can encounter
demanding work while helping
students improve in their academ-
ics. One of the most difficult prob-
lems is just getting students to read
at grade level.
“At these schools, it’s to the point
where you could have a ninth grad-
er at a third grader’s reading level,”
Keshary said.
Teach for America evaluates
its teachers based on how much
their students improve in reading
skills and standardized test scores.
Since teachers have only one year
with a student, showing any sort of
improvement, however minimal,
is success.
“Many classrooms, you are
meeting students who have layers
and layers of lack of confidence or
maybe a distance that they keep
from teachers because school has
not been a warm and welcoming
place at times,” said Candace Potter,
Kansas and Missouri’s recruitment
manager for TFA.
Potter said when she taught for
TFA for two years in Memphis, her
students’ reading level improved
by more than a grade level. She
said every Teach for America corps
member tracks the data in his or
her classroom in terms of their stu-
dents’ mastery, reading levels and
writing levels.
“My first year in the classroom,
on average, my students had 2.3
years reading growth, which means
they didn’t just improve one year,
but they improved 2.3.”

WASHINGTON — President
Barack Obama has spent months
trying to balance his re-election
bid with running the govern-
Now, just when his campaign
needs him the most, with little
more than a week before the elec-
tion, his official job is beckoning.
Republican challenger Mitt
Romney, too, faces questions about
how to conduct his campaign as
a superstorm charges toward the
East Coast. But as president, it’s
Obama who oversees the federal
government’s preparations for the
looming storm and it’s Obama
who will bear the responsibility
for any missteps.
With that in mind, Obama
scrapped campaign events Monday
night and Tuesday morning. He
planned to return to the White
House late Monday to monitor
the storm and the government’s
“This is an example, yet again,
of the president having to put his
responsibilities as commander in
chief and as leader of the coun-
try first, while at the same time
he pursues his responsibilities as
a candidate for re-election,” Josh
Earnest, a White House spokes-
man, told reporters traveling
with Obama to a campaign event
Saturday in New Hampshire.
Still, ripping up Obama’s stra-
tegically planned travel schedule
was something his Chicago-based
campaign was loath to do unless
absolutely necessary.
In the tight race, the candidates
have few opportunities left to blitz
through the most competitive
states, trying to build momen-
tum and make a final pitch to
undecided voters.
The president’s handling of
the storm could sway those
late-breaking voters. If Obama
is perceived as a strong leader
who shows command in a cri-
sis, some undecided voters may
be compelled to back the presi-
dent. But a botched response or
a sense that he’s putting politics
over public safety could weaken
his support at a point in the
race where there’s little chance to
reverse course.
“I think that the president of
the United States is the com-
mander in chief. The American
people look to him, and I’m sure
he will conduct himself and play
his leadership role in a fine fash-
ion. So I would imagine that
might help him a little bit,” said
Arizona Sen. John McCain, who
lost to Obama in 2008.
Obama advisers say they’ve
learned the lessons from
President George W. Bush’s
widely criticized response to
Hurricane Katrina. Bush was
seen as ineffective and out of
touch, and his presidency never
That’s why Obama’s team has
moved quickly throughout the
year to avoid the impression that
the president was shirking his
responsibilities, even as the cam-
paign ramped up.
When separate crises struck
Colorado this summer — destruc-
tive wildfires and a mass shooting
at a movie theater — Obama hast-
ily arranged trips to meet with
victims and their families. When
a hurricane barreled through
the Gulf Coast ahead of the
Democratic Convention, the pres-
ident added a stop in New Orleans
to his preconvention itinerary.
Hurricane Sandy was expected
to hit the East Coast late Monday,
then combine with two win-
ter weather systems as it moves
inland. At least four battleground
states are likely to be hit: New
Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio
and Virginia.
Obama plans to spend every
day between now and Nov. 6 on
the road in most of those states
and others, though his schedule
does call for him to be back in
Washington some nights.
Jennifer Psaki, Obama’s cam-
paign spokeswoman, said the
Democratic ticket was urging
people to vote early when they
can, especially if it helps them get
to the polls before the storm.
“Safety comes first,” she said.
“And that’s the case with early vot-
ing as well.”

Former rocker arrested
in sex abuse scandal
LONDON — Police investigating
child sex abuse allegations against the
late BBC television host Jimmy Savile
arrested former glam rock star and
convicted sex offender Gary Glitter on
Sunday, British media reported, raising
further questions about whether Savile
was at the center of a broader pedo-
phile ring.
Police would not directly identify the
suspect arrested
Sunday, but media
including the BBC
and Press Asso-
ciation reported he
was the 68-year-
old Glitter.
The musician,
whose real name is Paul Gadd, made it
big with the crowd-pleasing hit “Rock
& Roll (Part 2),” a mostly instrumen-
tal anthem that has been a staple at
American sporting events, thanks to
its catchy “hey” chorus. But he fell
into disgrace after being convicted on
child abuse charges in Vietnam.
Sunday’s arrest was the frst in a
widening scandal over Savile’s alleged
sex crimes, which started garnering
attention earlier this month when a
television documentary showed several
women claiming that Savile abused
them when they were teenagers. Hun-
dreds of potential victims have since
come forward to report similar claims
to police against Savile, a much-loved
children’s TV presenter and disc jockey
who died at the age of 84 last year.
Most have alleged abuse by Savile,
but some said they were abused by
Savile and others. Most claimed they
were assaulted in their early teens.

Despite threats, Palestine

Columbia — A magnitude
7.7 earthquake struck off the
west coast of Canada, but there
were no reports of major dam-
age. Residents in parts of British
Columbia were evacuated, but
the province appeared to escape
the biggest quake in Canada since
1949 largely unscathed.
The U.S. Geological Survey
said the powerful temblor hit the
Queen Charlotte Islands just after
8 p.m. local time Saturday at a
depth of about 3 miles (5 kilome-
ters) and was centered 96 miles
(155 kilometers) south of Masset,
British Columbia. It was felt across
a wide area in British Columbia,
both on its Pacific islands and on
the mainland.
“It looks like the damage
and the risk are at a very low
level,” said Shirley Bond, British
Columbia’s minister responsible
for emergency management said.
“We’re certainly grateful.”
The National Weather Service
issued a tsunami warning for
coastal areas of British Columbia,
southern Alaska and Hawaii, but
later canceled it for the first two
and downgraded it to an advisory
for Hawaii.
Gerard Fryer, a senior geologist
with the Pacific Tsunami Warning
Center, said the first waves hitting
shore in Hawaii were smaller than
Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie
said early Sunday that the Aloha
State was lucky to avoid more
severe surges statewide.
“We’re very, very grateful that
we can go home tonight counting
our blessings,” Abercrombie said.
RAMALLAH, West Bank —
The Palestinian president is mov-
ing forward with his plan to seek
upgraded observer status at the
United Nations next month, despite
American and Israeli threats of
financial or diplomatic retaliation,
officials said Sunday.
The decision sets the stage for a
new showdown between Israel and
the Palestinians at the world body,
following last year’s attempt by the
Palestinians to seek status as a full
member state. Although that initia-
tive failed to pass the U.N. Security
Council, it caused months of diplo-
matic tensions with Israel.
“We will go to the U.N. regard-
less of any threats,” said Tawfik
Tirawi, a senior member of
President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah
movement. “I expect the Israelis to
take punitive measures against us,
if we win this status, but this is our
choice and we will not retract it.”
This year, the Palestinians are
seeking “nonmember state” sta-
tus in the U.N. General Assembly,
where passage is assured. The
193-member assembly is domi-
nated by developing nations sym-
pathetic to the Palestinian cause.
Officials say they are looking for
what they call a “quality” majority
that includes European countries as
well, though Germany and Britain,
for instance, have been cool to the
Palestinian plan.
While upgraded status would
not change the situation on the
ground, the Palestinians say the
move is still significant. They will
ask for international recognition of
a Palestinian state in the West Bank,
Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem, ter-
ritories captured by Israel in the
1967 Mideast war.
The U.S. has not publicly said
how it will respond this time,
though Palestinian officials say
Washington has also threatened
to cut off vital financial aid to

SAN DIEGO — Move over
vampires, goblins and haunted
houses, this kind of Halloween
terror aims to shake up even the
toughest warriors: An untold
number of so-called zombies are
coming to a counterterrorism
summit attended by hundreds
of Marines, Navy special ops,
soldiers, police, frefghters and
others to prepare them for their
worst nightmares.
“Tis is a very real exercise, this
is not some type of big costume
party,” said Brad Barker, presi-
dent of Halo Corp, a security frm
hosting the Oct. 31 training dem-
onstration during the summit at
a 44-acre Paradise Point Resort
island on a San Diego bay. “Ev-
erything that will be simulated at
this event has already happened,
it just hasn’t happened all at once
on the same night. But the train-
ing is very real, it just happens to
be the bad guys we’re having a
little fun with.”
Hundreds of military, law en-
forcement and medical personnel
will observe the Hollywood-style
production of a zombie attack as
part of their emergency response
In the scenario, a VIP and his
personal detail are trapped in a
village, surrounded by zombies
when a bomb explodes. Te VIP
is wounded and his team must
move through the town while
dodging bullets and shooting
back at the invading zombies. At
one point, some members of the
team are bitten by zombies and
must be taken to a feld medical
facility for decontamination and
“No one knows what the zom-
bies will do in our scenario, but
quite frankly no one knows what
a terrorist will do,” Barker said.
“If a law enforcement ofcer sees
a zombie and says, ‘Freeze, get
your hands in the air!’ What’s the
zombie going to do? He’s going to
moan at you. If someone on PCP
or some other psychotic drug is
told that, the truth is he’s not go-
ing to react to you.”
Te keynote speaker before-
hand will be a retired top spook
— former CIA Director Michael
“No doubt when a zombie
apocalypse occurs, it’s going to be
a federal incident, so we’re mak-
ing it happen,” Barker said. Since
word got out about the exercise,
they’ve had calls from “every
whack job in the world” about
whether the U.S. government
is really preparing for a zombie
Called “Zombie Apocalypse,”
the exercise follows the federal
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention’s campaign launched
last year that urged Americans to
get ready for a zombie apocalypse,
as part of a catchy, public health
message about the importance of
emergency preparedness.
Te Homeland Security De-
partment jumped on board last
month, telling citizens if they’re
prepared for a zombie attack,
they’ll be ready for real-life disas-
ters like a hurricane, pandemic,

rather go lumberjack-
ing with Leatherface
than risk seeing another genre
classic slandered by an over-
produced, content-neutered
remake. The word “remake”
alone is enough to repel many
purists, who view Freddy and
Jason with the same protective
ardor other cinephiles reserve
for the works of Scorsese and
So when greenhorn direc-
tor Fede Alvarez announced his
first feature would be a remake
of Sam Raimi’s 1981 splatter-
horror standard “The Evil Dead,”
the news was met with outrage
from the original’s fanbase, a
passionate lot weaned on the
lantern-jawed, chainsaw-wielding
awesomeness of Ash (the iconic
Bruce Campbell) and his never-
ending crusade against a horde of
woods-dwelling demons known
as the Deadites. The notoriously
gory film spawned two wackier,
equally beloved sequels: “Evil
Dead 2: Dead by Dawn” and
“Army of Darkness.”
I’m usually disinclined to sup-
port remakes myself, but what
better time than Halloween to
play devil’s advocate? I honestly
believe this new “Evil Dead” is
showing signs of becoming a
successful shocker in its own
right. For one thing, Raimi and
Campbell have both signed on as
producers, with Campbell pos-
sibly even returning as Ash for a
cameo appearance. It won’t be the
big budget “Evil Dead 4” many
fans were clamoring for, but it
could renew interest in the fran-
chise to the point where the latter
may become a possibility.
The redband trailer, which
debuted last week online,
revealed Alvarez’s vision not as
some slick, toned-down rehash
but rather a graphically violent,
feverishly paced bloodbath that
seems intent on living up to the
original’s killer tagline: “The
ultimate experience in grueling
horror!” The movie, shot with a
minimum of CGI and co-written
by Oscar-winner Diablo Cody
(“Juno,” “Young Adult”), also
eschews the zany black humor
that came to the forefront in
Raimi’s sequels, a change likely to
polarize the faithful.
Perhaps most importantly, they
haven’t recast Ash. The new film’s
protagonist is now a recover-
ing alcoholic named Mia (Jane
Levy), whose college-age friends
take her on a weekend getaway
to that most idyllic of settings: a
cabin in the woods. They find an
oddly bound book in the cellar
and unwisely read aloud from
its pages, which of course results
in all manner of demonic pos-
sessions, sexual harassment by
sentient trees and increasingly
poor decisions involving home
If Alvarez’s “Evil Dead” scores
well with fans and critics, it
could end up joining David
Cronenberg’s “The Fly” and John
Carpenter’s “The Thing” on the
rarefied list of horror remakes
that manage to match or surpass
their predecessors. The last few
years have seen only three serious
contenders for inclusion: Gore
Verbinski’s “The Ring,” Zack
Snyder’s “Dawn of the Dead,”
a zombie saga featuring one of
the more harrowing openings in
recent memory, and Matt Reeve’s
“Let Me In,” a poignant vampire
film released only two years after
its still-superior Swedish coun-
terpart “Let The Right One In.”
Are there any other promising
horror remakes on the horizon?
Certainly not “The Birds,” which
is being produced by Michael
Bay’s Platinum Dunes, the same
studio responsible for the bland
modernizations of “Friday the
13th” and “The Amityville
Horror.” Hitchcock’s classic
revamped with Megan Fox dodg-
ing digital seagulls? No thanks.
The best bet for 2013 besides
“The Evil Dead” is probably
this February’s “Carrie,” star-
ring Chloë Grace Moretz as the
tormented high schooler with a
budding talent for telekinesis and
Julianne Moore as her mother,
an unhinged religious zealot who
views every physical urge as sin-
ful. The movie, a “re-adaptation”
of Stephen King’s first novel, has
all the ingredients of a genuinely
unnerving psychodrama.
Brian De Palma’s 1976 original
is still highly revered in some
circles, but parts of it come off as
painfully dated and even misogy-
nistic, especially during that first
scene in the showers. Moretz
and Moore are both immensely
talented actresses and Kimberly
Peirce, the director of “Boys
Don’t Cry,” certainly knows her
way around the darker reaches of
the female psyche. Factor in the
national fervor over bullying and
you’re left with a possible com-
mercial and critical hit.

‘Argo’ reaches top spot
after three weeks
LOS ANGELES — It took three weeks,
but “Argo” fnally found its way to the top
of the box offce.
The Warner Bros. thriller from director
and star Ben Affeck, inspired by the real-
life rescue of six U.S. embassy workers
during the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,
made nearly $12.4 million this weekend,
according to Sunday studio estimates.
“Argo” had been in second place the
past two weeks and has now made about
$60.8 million total.
Dan Fellman, head of distribution at
Warner Bros., said the studio thought
there might be a good chance of “Argo”
coming out on top this weekend.
“We’re thrilled. An accomplishment
like that is well deserved, they don’t hap-
pen very often. You would probably have
to do a lot of searching to fnd a movie
that opened in wide release to have two
No. 2 weekends in a row and hit No. 1 in
the third week,” Fellman said. “It’s a trib-
ute to the flm. Word-of-mouth has taken
over the campaign. We have a long way
to go, we have a lot of year-end accolades
which will approach, and we’ll see what
happens in terms of the Academy.”

ith the upcoming
presidential election
descending upon us,
the amount of coverage generated
is making it feel inescapable, and
we are not even living in a swing
state, being bombarded by tens of
millions of dollars of competing
television ads.
Te only thing that is clear
about this race is that it will be
too close to predict a winner until
all the votes have been tallied, but
despite a shrunken advantage, a
tough sell in a pessimistic econ-
omy, and a race that is virtually
tied—the president could very
well be poised for re-election.
Te lead President Obama held
over the summer all but disap-
peared afer a rough October, but
since then, the momentum built
up by the Romney camp seems to
have dissipated.
President Obama has had a
tough sell. Anytime an incum-
bent is up for re-election, part of
the choice is a referendum of their
performance during the time they
had in ofce. Te answer Team
Obama has been forced to supply
has basically been “it was worse
than we knew, and now it is better
than you think,” which is hardly
an ideal advertisement.
Election day is looming, and
many states have already be-
gun voting, leaving the candi-
dates to rely on their “get out the
vote” campaigns down the home
stretch. At this late point in the
campaign with little time lef
for members of the electorate to
change their minds, voter turnout
could be the primary variable re-
maining in the election equation.
Te single remaining jobs report
seems unlikely to efect many
voters or energize many apathetic
ones leaving little lef to sway un-
decideds or unlikelys, barring any
more “major” announcements
from Donald Trump.
As either an Obama supporter
or as a supporter of Mitt Romney,
you can fnd plenty of punditry to
convince yourself that your can-
didate has all but locked up the
270 necessary electoral votes.
According to the numbers
provided by current polling data
from Real Clear Politics, an ag-
gregate of major polls, 11 states
are listed as toss-ups with the rest
realistically predetermined. With
so few states lef in play, there are
relatively few paths to the White
House remaining for both Obama
and Romney.
Te easiest path for either can-
didate to win the election is simply
winning Ohio where Obama has
consistently held a narrow lead. It
will be hard for either candidate
to win the election without it or to
lose the election while gaining its
18 electoral votes. However, there
are a handful of scenarios that
would play out that would fnd
the winner of Ohio falling short.
Romney’s path without Ohio
is more congested than Obama’s,
and is part of the reason he could
be less likely to meet the requi-
site 270 electoral votes. In order
to win without Ohio, Romney
would have to carry both Virginia
and Colorado, where he has been
virtually tied with the president.
Tat could be, in itself, a tough
task, but he would then also need
to win three of these four states:
Wisconsin, Nevada, Iowa and
New Hampshire, all in which
Obama has held a very narrow
On top of those states, Romney
would need Florida and North
Carolina, where he has held mod-
erate leads. All of that must hap-
pen for Romney to win without
Ohio, unless he can steal Pennsyl-
vania or Michigan where Obama
has more considerable advantag-
es. So for the Romney camp, the
strategy is clear – win Ohio. How-
ever, at that point, they would still
not quite be out of the woods.
Obama would not fnd himself
in a comfortable position either
if Romney carries Ohio even if it
is less dire than the scenario de-
scribed for Romney. For Obama
to win the election, but fail to
win Ohio, he would have to win
in Michigan and Pennsylvania
where he leads. Ten depending
on how he fares in the tightly
contested states Colorado and
Virginia, where he would need at
least one of the two to stay alive,
he would have to win between
two and four of the remaining
“toss-ups.” His best bets would
include Wisconsin, Nevada, Iowa
and New Hampshire, where his
leads are small, because in the f-
nal two states, Florida and North
Carolina, Romney holds advan-
tages (all polling according to
current statistics on RCP).
Anything can happen in the
week remaining until Election
Day, and Ohio is still decid-
edly up for grabs. But because of
Obama’s higher likelihood of suc-
cess in that most crucial of swing
states and his marginally more
favorable (yet bleak) probability
of winning the election without
its 18 electoral votes than his op-
ponent’s chances sans-Ohio, it
seems the odds are in the presi-
dent’s favor.

he Superbowl: Some watch
it because they love foot-
ball, some watch it for the
comical commercials and others
watch it for the halfime show.
Te word has leaked, and now
it is no longer a secret. According
to Te Associated Press, Beyoncé
Knowles will be headlining the
performance during the halfime
show at this season’s Superbowl
on Feb. 3, in New Orleans. It is the
frst Superbowl to be held in New
Orleans since 2002, and the frst
since Hurricane Katrina ruined
part of the Superdome in 2004.
Tis will be the most watched tele-
vision event of the year.
Beyoncé leaked this news via
her ofcial Tumblr account with
a headline reading “Countdown
to Touchdown” and confrmed
the news by posting a picture of
herself wearing players eye black
with the date of the performance
on her face.
Pepsi will be the sponsor for
the show. It is the frst time since
2007, when Prince performed,
that Pepsi has sponsored the
event. I remember that perfor-
mance and thought is was one of
the better ones in recent years,
ahead of shows by Tom Petty and
the Heartbreakers, Bruce Spring-
steen and rock legends Te Who.
Te previous years have been the
genre of “classic rock” and target-
ed the older audience for the show
but not this year. Beyoncé is our
generation’s music, and we can
expect the show to attract a large
amount of teenagers and young
adults as well as others.
With previous halfime shows
not living up to the hype, Beyon-
cé’s performance should stand out
and attract more viewers than last
year’s record breaking 114 million
viewers with Madonna headlining
that performance. Tat even drew
more fans than the actual game
did with 111 million viewers, ac-
cording to the Nielsen Ratings.
Tat performance was chaotic
and weak, especially when MIA
showed the camera her middle
fnger that stirred up a bunch of
controversy over the halfime
show. Tis is the second obscene
gesture during a halfime show,
the frst being Janet Jackson and
Justin Timberlake.
Even though I am not a fan of
Beyoncé’s singing, she will put on
a good show. She is known as one
of the best live performers of our
time and has a legacy of sound-
ing better live than recorded. She
will live up to her reputation and
put on a good performance of
dancing, singing and a high fash-
ion show. Beyoncé has won 16
Grammy awards and even sang
the national anthem at the start of
Superbowl XLVII in 2004 in her
hometown of Houston.
As of right now, we only know
of Beyoncé as the sole performer,
but we could see her husband Jay-
Z guest star in the show along with
old band mates from Destiny’s
Child. But we won’t know this un-
til the performance is aired live on
national television in February.
Regardless of what people say,
this halfime show will be an en-
tertaining performance for what
is an anticipated record breaking
amount of viewers for the event.
Stay tuned.

n Nov. 1 of last year, my
friends and I sat around
discussing the Halloween
costumes we had seen the night
before. I think my friend Casie
best summed up our opinions of
most of the female costumes.
“Girls, if your Halloween cos-
tume can double as a role play
in the bedroom, you’re doing it
Words to live by.
Maybe it’s because last year, my
friends and I wore footie pajamas,
Mario and Luigi unitards and uni-
corn helmets, but we simply didn’t
understand the inclination to sport
a promiscuous frefghter costume
on Halloween night.
Believe me, I understand the
reasoning. I’ve seen “Mean Girls.”
Halloween is the one night a year
that a woman can dress like a pros-
titute and no one can say anything
to her.
And yet, I can say something
to you. I can say that, regardless
of what night it is, photos of you
in your Playboy bunny costume
will be online all year long. I can
say that your boyfriend will still
love you if you don’t wear that
his-and-her-plug-and-socket cos-
tume. I can say that you’ll have a
much better night if you don’t have
to worry about falling out of your
fve-inch platform heels.
What I really don’t understand is
the desire to turn something com-
pletely non-sexual into a bra-and-
booty-shorts combo. I mean, a wa-
termelon costume with cutouts in
the shape of bite marks? A “sexy”
strait jacket? A Pikachu costume
complete with fshnets and a black
and yellow corset? It upsets me that
the women’s section of Halloween
stores is flled with skankifed ver-
sions of about every character or
item you can imagine.
Some of my friends do a great
job of wearing traditional cos-
tumes as tastefully as possible.
Dressing as alcohol equals poster
boards crafed into red solo cups
or pirates carrying handles of Cap-
tain Morgan (not scrawling Dos
Equis across a barely-there duct
tape dress). Dressing as athletes
equals braiding hair into corn-
rows and wearing men’s basketball
shorts (not turning a jersey into a
dress paired with kitten heels). Be-
ing creative beats being racy any
If nothing else, think of com-
fort over sex appeal. How much
more fun will you be if you’re free
to dance, party hop and maneuver
around a room without worrying
about a wardrobe malfunction
on your sexy Girl Scout costume?
(Yes, these exist. And yes, I’m just
as concerned as you are).
I won’t even mention the ben-
efts of erring on the modest side
for reputation’s sake. To lif and
slightly modify another quote
from “Mean Girls”: You have got to
stop dressing like sluts and whores.
It just makes it OK for guys to call
you sluts and whores.
Everyone wants to look cute on
the spookiest night of the year, but
stay classy, Jayhawks. Stay classy.
P.S. If you’re looking for me,
I’ll be the girl in the suit-and-
tie Gangnam Style costume I’ve
pieced together at Goodwill (Ei-
ther that or whatever I fnd at Wal-
mart that day).

While Amanda Gress’ article
“Middle East conficts largely ig-
nored” focuses on the problems
Israeli settlers pose to peace be-
tween Israel and Palestine, it fails
to acknowledge that Israel’s terri-
torial sovereignty is under attack
by Iran.
According to Te Jerusalem
Post, Iranian President Mah-
moud Ahmadinejad, speaking
earlier this year, said, “[a]nyone
who loves freedom and justice
must strive for the annihilation
of the Zionist regime in order
to pave the way for world justice
and freedom.”
At heart of this efort are the
terrorist organizations, and po-
litical parties, Hamas and Hez-
bollah. Both parties have been
responsible for rocket attacks,
past and present, against Israel;
and recently, Hezbollah sent an
unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV),
commonly called a “drone,” over
Israel, and claimed that the drone
was built by Iran.
Hamas, the Palestinian of-
shoot of the transnational Mus-
lim Brotherhood, and Hezbol-
lah, both major political parties
and terrorist organizations, re-
ceive funding from the state of
Iran, as well as donations made
by wealthy backers and charities.
Tese groups act as agents of Ira-
nian interests in the West Bank
and the Gaza Strip; and repre-
sent an efort to destroy the state
of Israel.
Although Israeli settlers may
pose a problem to peace nego-
tiations between Palestine and
Israel, they do not account for
policies that call for the “full an-
nihilation of Israel,” as Iranian
Major Gen. Hassan Firouzabadi
remarked in May, according to
Te Times of Israel.
As long as terrorist organiza-
tions, political parties and coun-
tries maintain that the state of
Israel should be destroyed, peace
in the Middle East will not exist,
regardless of any peace eforts
initiated by the United States.

Kansas State advanced to 8-0 on Saturday when it
routed Texas Tech in the second half. To no one’s sur-
prise, Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein led his
team to victory.
Klein completed 19 of 25 passes for 233 yards and

two touchdowns. Klein has 28 total touchdowns this
season, and his chances of winning the Heisman in-

Texas Tech held a 10-3 lead early in the second
quarter and trailed at halfime by only three, but the
game turned into a blowout in the second half. Te Red
Raiders committed three turnovers, which resulted in
17 points for the Wildcats.
Te Wildcats also scored 21 points in the third and
fourth quarters to remain undefeated.

yards and put together his sixth 100-yard game of the
season to help Oklahoma State pick up its third straight
conference win.
Not only did the Horned Frogs lose, but they also
lost Boykin to a knee injury near the end of the game.
iowa state 35 — Baylor 21
Iowa State 5-3 (2-3) – Baylor 3-4 (0-4)

It’s been a long season for both Iowa State and Bay-
lor, with neither team playing well within the confer-
ence. Tis past weekend, Iowa State prevailed and won
its second conference game of the season.
Afer dealing with injury, Iowa State quarterback
Steele Jantz had the best game of his season and was
responsible for every touchdown scored by Iowa State.
Jantz threw 36 passes for 381 yards and fve touch-
downs. Wide receivers Chris Young and Jarvis West
each caught seven passes. Jantz found West three times
in the end zone.

ed Notre Dame in one of the biggest matchups this
week. Notre Dame held a narrow lead for 18 minutes

KsU continues undefeated streak
Big 12
Giants win World Series
in 10th-inning tiebreaker
DETROIT — Marco Scutaro sin-
gled home the tiebreaking run in the
10th inning, and the San Francisco
Giants beat the Detroit Tigers 4-3
on Sunday night to complete a four-
game sweep and win their second
World Series title in three years.
Ryan Teriot, who went hitless for
St. Louis in Game 7 of last year’s Se-
ries, singled sofly into right feld of
Phil Coke opening the 10th.
Brandon Crawford sacrifced,
nearly bunting the ball past Coke.
Angel Pagan struck out and Scutaro
singled into short center feld as Te-
riot slid home ahead of Austin Jack-
son’s throw.
Pablo Sandoval, who hit three
homers in Game 1, was selected Se-
ries MVP. He was 1 for 5 in Game
4, dropping his Series average to .500
(8 for 16).
Santiago Casilla got the fnal out
of the ninth for the win, and Sergio
Romo struck out the side in the 10th
for his third save, freezing Triple
Crown winner Miguel Cabrera with
a called third strike to end it. Te Gi-
ants ran out of the dugout and bull-
pen to celebrate between the mound
and second base.
Of the 24 teams to take 3-0 Series
leads, 21 swept and three won in fve
Delmon Young hit a tying home
run of Matt Cain in the sixth. Ca-
brera and San Francisco’s Buster
Posey homered, marking the frst
time both reigning batting cham-
pions went deep in the same Series
San Francisco’s Brandon Belt
hit an RBI triple of the right-feld
wall in the second inning follow-
ing a ground-rule double by Hunter
Pence. But on a night when the wind
was gusting to right feld at up to
25 mph, Cabrera put Detroit ahead
for the frst time in the Series with
a wild-blown, two-run drive in the
Cabrera’s drive, on an 86 mph
breaking ball, sailed over Pence, who
thought he would catch it but ran
out of room in front of the right-
feld wall. It drove Jackson, who had
walked with one out, and ended De-
troit’s 20-inning scoreless streak.
San Francisco had not trailed since
losing Game 4 of the NL champion-
ship series, when the Giants fell into
a 3-1 series defcit against St. Louis.
With a light rain falling, Scu-
taro reached on a chopper to third
leading of the sixth and, one out
later, Max Scherzer hung an 82 mph
breaking ball. Posey drove it down
the lef-feld line, where it stayed a
few feet fair and landed a couple of
rows over the wall for a 3-2 lead.
Tat advantage didn’t last long.
Young sent an opposite-feld, no-
doubt drive into the right-feld
stands in the bottom half, setting of
cheers among the crowd of 42,152,
with many fans waving white rally
Smyly, Dotel and Coke combined
for 2 2-3 innings of hitless relief be-
fore the 10th.
It would be pretty easy for Kan-
sas to overlook West Virginia in
tonight’s home volleyball match at
6:30 p.m.
Afer all, the Jayhawks have a
19-4 record, including 7-2 in Big
12 play. Te 8-16 Mountaineers
have lost 10 straight matches and
are 0-10 in Big 12 play.
But sophomore outside hitter
Sara McClinton said the Jayhawks
won’t write of West Virginia be-
cause Kansas needs to win every
Big 12 match to catch up to confer-
ence leader Texas in the standings.
“We just have to focus during
practice that we’re training to beat
Texas, and so these games in be-
tween, we have to be fawless,” Mc-
Clinton said.
With seven freshmen players
and just one senior, the Mountain-
eers are one of the youngest teams
in the Big 12. West Virginia’s fresh-
men lead the team in most statisti-
cal categories. Te Mountaineers
enter tonight’s match with a .161
hitting percentage, but that num-
ber dips to .094 in conference play.
Meanwhile, Kansas is hitting .238
overall and .216 in Big 12 play.
Te Jayhawks beat West Virginia
3-1 during their frst matchup Oct.
3 in Morgantown, W. Va. However,
Kansas came out fat during the
frst set, which the Mountaineers
won 25-15.
“If you’re going to try overlook-
ing them, they’re going to come
up and they’re going to take a set
away from you,” McClinton said. “I
think that’s what we saw when we
were at West Virginia, and then we
realized afer that point that there’s
no overlooking anyone in the Big
While West Virginia struggles
statistically in most categories,
they rank third in the Big 12 with
1.43 service aces per set. West Vir-
ginia recorded eight service aces
in its frst matchup with Kansas,
although the Jayhawks got seven
aces of their own.
Against Iowa State Wednesday,
Kansas conceded fve service aces
in the frst set alone. Coach Ray
Bechard said Kansas conceded so
many because they did not do a
good job making frst contact on
the ball.
Serve receives will be key against
West Virginia as serving will be the
Mountaineers’ best hope to keep
sets close.
“Tat’s their equalizer,” Bechard
said. “Tey really come afer you
and try to get you out-of-system,
so you become more predictable
and much like a lot of teams in the
Big 12.”
Junior outside hitter/defensive
specialist Amy Wehrs said West
Virginia’s style of play is diferent
from other Big 12 teams because
this is the Mountaineers’ frst
year in the conference. However,
she said West Virginia uses a lef-
handed right side hitter, which is
the norm for most Big 12 teams
and something Kansas is used to
defending against.
“You’ll fnd a lot of right sides
being lef-handed because when
the set’s coming from that way, it’s
a lot easier for lef-handed hitters
to hit the ball versus right-handed
hitters,” Wehrs said.
Te Jayhawks are also in the
midst of an nonstandard sched-
ule. Kansas played Iowa State last
Wednesday, but did not have a
match this past weekend. Usually
the team would play Wednesday
before having another Saturday
But because West Virginia was
already in Lubbock, Texas for a
match against Texas Tech Satur-
day, the team asked Kansas if to-
night’s match could be moved from
According to Kansas Athletics,
the Jayhawks haven’t played on a
Monday since Sept. 22, 2003, when
they swept UMKC.
Bechard said the team prac-
ticed Friday, Saturday and Sunday
afer taking last Tursday of, but
that the change in routine would
help because it gave the Jayhawks
a little more time to rest. But West
Virginia travels directly to Kansas
afer playing Texas Tech, so it will
see a similar beneft.
“So I think it was a win-win for
both sides,” Bechard said.

Monday, october 29, 2012 the UnIVerSIty daILy KanSan
Jayhawks to face struggling Mountaineers
The wind blew frigid and steady
at the Jayhawk Soccer Complex
Friday afternoon, but that did not
put a damper on Senior Night as
Kansas and its seven seniors rolled
over Northern Colorado 5-0.
Early in the match, it was easy
to see Kansas was the more com-
plete team. But despite out-shoot-
ing the Bears 11-2 in the first half,
the Jayhawks went into half time
with the score
tied at zero.
Throughout the
match, Kansas
was tagged with
a few question-
able off-side calls
that stymied the
attack, but with
about 20 minutes
gone in the second half everything
fell into place for the Jayhawks as
the team rattled off all five goals
in the last 30 minutes.
“I thought we played well in the
first half but we just couldn’t con-
vert in the attacking third,” coach
Mark Francis said. “We were just
a little bit more clinical I think at
the end. That was probably the
biggest difference.”
Kansas’ win Friday was a true
team effort as five different play-
ers scored. With Ali Kimura’s goal
in the final minutes, the Jayhawks
were able to show off their depth
as a team. The team now has
seven players who have recorded
a goal this season.
Kimura is a walk-on who
started seeing more time as the
season progressed, and with the
Big 12 tournament starting on
Wednesday, Francis is glad that
his whole team is able to contrib-
ute to winning.
“That was huge for Ali I think,”
Francis said. “I was excited for
her. She kind of came on late this
year, and it’s been a pretty big
learning curve for her, but she is
starting to pick things up, and
she was in the right place at the
right time on that one.”
For the Jayhawks to be able to
get to the NCAA Tournament,
they will have to win the Big
12 tournament. First in line for
Kansas is a Texas Tech team that
got a win 3-1 here in Lawrence
on Oct. 21. With that memory
still fresh in their minds, the play-
ers will look to build on this con-
vincing victory and make a run
for the NCAA Tournament.
Francis said a solid win in the
team’s last home game is a positive
building block for post-season
“For us today, I mean, a lot of
people scored, we played well and
dominated the game, so I think
those things are important just in
terms of our confidence,” Francis

n Saturday, the Oklaho-
ma City Tunder made
a trade with the Houston
Rockets that will leave most Tun-
der fans scratching their heads.
Te Tunder sent guard James
Harden, forwards Daequan Cook
and Lazar Hayward, and former
Kansas center Cole Aldrich to the
Rockets in return for guards Kevin
Martin and rookie Jeremy Lamb,
as well as two frst round picks in
the 2013 draf.
According to ESPN’s Chris
Broussard, the Tunder ofered
Harden $55.5 million over four
years, but it was $4.5 million less
than the maximum deal Harden
would eventually agree to with the
Rockets on Saturday.
Oklahoma City had previously
signed stars Kevin Durant, Russell
Westbrook and Serge Ibaka to long
term contracts, and simply didn’t
have the cap space to sign Harden.
Te Tunder is a small market
team, and doesn’t have the same
kind of money as the Los Angeles
Lakers or New York Knicks have to
keep all of its players.
Tis trade has made a huge ef-
fect on everyone associated with
the league. Harden, who received
the Sixth Man of the Year Award
last year, provided a big boost for
the Tunder of the bench with
his deadly three-point shooting
and his ability to create plays of
the dribble. During the 2011-2012
season, Harden averaged nearly
17 points a game for the Tunder,
and was a major factor in helping
the Tunder reach the NBA fnals,
a feat the organization hadn’t ac-
complished since 1996, when they
were the Seattle Supersonics.
Even with the acquisition of a
proven scorer in Martin, who av-
eraged 17 points per game with
the Rockets last season, and Jer-
emy Lamb, who is a rookie with
tremendous upside the chemistry
that Harden provided to the team
on and of the court is irreplace-
able. Last year, Harden would ofen
come into the game right away and
contribute. If Durant was strug-
gling to fnd his shot to start the
game, or if Westbrook was shoot-
ing too much, Harden was able to
come in during the fnal minutes of
the frst quarter and knock down
a three pointer or make a play to
help get the team back on track.
Not to mention how much
the fan base and community val-
ued him. If you haven’t been to a
Tunder game, Chesapeake En-
ergy Arena feels like a college at-
mosphere because of the loyalty of
the Oklahoma City fans. During
games, young kids as well as older
fans wear the fake Harden beard to
show love and support for him.
Sometimes money isn’t every-
thing, and I think Harden should
have stayed in OKC for one more
year to chase the title. Yes, they
lost to the Miami Heat in game 5
of the NBA fnals last year. Yes, the
Lakers got Steve Nash and Dwight
Howard. Te Tunder still had one
advantage over all of these teams
that were competing with them
for the NBA title, and that is they
have been improved tremendously
every year with the same team. Te
Tunder didn’t need to acquire
more superstars to improve, such
as the Lakers and Heat did. Tey
are a young enough team, and each
position is improving each year
on their skill level as well as con-
Te Tunder are by no means
done competing with the best
teams in the league, but losing
Harden is a major loss. In an of-
season where the Lakers get Nash
and Howard, the Tunder needed
to keep their nucleus of players.
Harden was a key ingredient
for the Tunder’s success the past
three seasons, and newcomers
Kevin Martin and Jeremy Lamb
have some big shoes to fll.

Te men’s cross country team
crossed the fnish line fourth in the
Big 12 Championships race on Sat-
urday, their best fnish since 2006.
Oklahoma State won the confer-
ence title for the ffh straight year.
Sophomore Evan Landes led the
way for Kansas. He placed 17th,
just two spots away from a qualify-
ing as a member of the All-Big 12
team. Landes is one of four run-
ners to lead the team to the fnish
in this season’s fve races.
“It could have been anybody to-
day,” Landes said.
Tis was a point assistant coach
Michael Whittlesey made even be-
fore the frst race of the season.
“Tat’s what we had with our
team, seven guys that could inter-
change,” Whittlesey said.
Tis season, each race presented
an opportunity for a new leader to
“It just happened today that it
was Evan’s turn,” coach Stanley
Redwine said. “Great job for Evan,
but the total team efort is what
we’re excited about.”
Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and
Texas —the three teams that fn-
ished ahead of Kansas in Saturday’s
race— are all currently ranked in
the top ten of the NCAA coaches
poll. Kansas is ranked ffh in the
Midwest Region, but they beat
fourth-ranked Iowa State on Satur-
day as the Cyclones fnished ffh in
the race.
In the women’s race, Iowa State
took the Big 12 title, with Kansas
fnishing seventh. Senior Kyra Kil-
wein was the top fnisher for the
Jayhawks for the third time this
Kilwein said her goal going into
the race was to get one of the top 15
spots as a member of the All-Big 12
team, but that did not happen.
“I think Kyra has had a really
good season this year,” Whittlesey
said. “She’s learned how to main-
tain that aggressiveness through-
out the middle of the race and stay
Te rest of Kilwein’s team, how-
ever, were too aggressive Saturday,
Whittlesey said. Stanley Redwine
said the team may have been over-
compensating for mistakes made at
the Wisconsin Adidas Invitational
earlier this month.
“I think the things that we did
bad at Wisconsin, we tried to make
up for those things at the begin-
ning of the race, so I think we went
out a little too fast and it hurt us at
the end,” Redwine said.
Te men’s and women’s teams
will travel to Springfeld, Mo. for
the Midwest Regional on Nov. 9.

Kansas went toe-to-toe with Texas
for the frst time since 2004 and were 12
seconds away from its frst victory since
a 19-18 win in 1938. The defense showed
mental toughness in bouncing back from a
45-point rout a week earlier, holding anoth-
er ranked opponent to under 22-points and
Michael Cummings completed a couple big
passes. Signs of improvement have never
been more clear.

The Jayhawks’ mistakes early on may
have been too critical. Turning a frst-and-
goal into a fourth-and-29 looks a lot big-
ger in hindsight along with Greg Brown’s
dropped interception on what would be-

To be fair, everyone on the Jayhawks
looked sloppy in the frst quarter, yet be-
fore Kansas could escape it, the punt team
came out on fourth-and-one and added to
the madness. Ron Doherty’s kick went awry
and few out of bounds after traveling just
13 yards. Verdict: Just Plain Stupid

not lost in the pains of the frst quarter

ning back in the Big 12 than James Sims,
he hasn’t seen him. as evidence, Sims
broke off a 64-yard run early in the second
quarter that sparked the offense. The junior
went on to average 6.3 yards per carry.

Kansas will take on another offense
averaging 44 points a game featuring the
best passing game in the nation. Baylor will
certainly be a test. The good news, however,
is that the Bears are giving up three points
less than they score.
finAL ThouGhT:
Charlie Weis doesn’t believe in moral
victories — and nor should he — but if
he’s been doubting whether or not he’s
doing the right thing, he can look to this
game. The Jayhawks were only 12 seconds
away from beating a ranked Texas squad
— and Kansas looked better than its
counterpart all game. This team still has
a long way to go, but at least the starting
line is out of sight.

It was no secret that Kansas was planning to attack Texas on the ground, and the
Longhorns still couldn’t stop it. The Jayhawks collected 234 of their total 273 yards
through the run game, and James sims gained 176 yards alone. Michael Cummings
didn’t have a great passing game (3-9), but he connected at all the right moments
— including an 18-yard pass to Jimmay Mundine on a crucial third-and-eight in the
fourth quarter.

Quote of the game
solid kickoff coverage, an average of 33.2 yards per punt and a clutch feld goal to
take the lead — what more could you ask for out of Clint Bowen’s group this week?
Coach Charlie Weis allowed Bowen to use any player he wanted on special teams,
and this decision paid off. The feld goal unit, after being catastrophic in previous
games with Nick Prolago, put it together to notch a 29-yarder to take a 17-14 lead in
the fourth quarter.
Grade: b+
Both Dave Campo and Charlie Weis were on their game this week. Weis’ running
game ran 25 straight plays at one point, and the Longhorns still couldn’t stop them.
The defensive team had arguably its best game of the season coming off of its abso-
lute worst. Campo continues to be the Jayhawks’ biggest asset.
Grade: A
You can’t ask for a better performance out of Dave Campo’s corps. Texas came
into Lawrence averaging 44 points per game, and it scored only 21 on the Jayhawks.
Linebackers Ben heeney and huldon Tharp had monster games, leading Kansas
with 13 and 11 tackles, respectively, including a few goal-line stops. Two intercep-
tions by cornerback greg Brown and safety Lubbock smith kept the momentum
favoring the Jayhawks.
Grade: A+
“There’s defnitely a toughness factor to our defense. We’re not a bunch of high
profle recruits or anything like that, but we bought into coach Campo’s system, and
we’re executing a lot better than we have in the past.”

Kansas coach Charlie Weis
knew his offense would be effec-
tive if his team could run the
ball. The Jayhawks’ running game
was dynamic on Saturday with a
season-high of 56 carries for 234
James Sims led all running
backs with a career-high of 176
yards, including a 64-yard run
early in the second quarter. Sims
saw a big hole in the Longhorns
defense and busted through for a
big gain, which translated into a
Jayhawks touchdown three plays
“They are fast, and we knew
that from the beginning,” Sims
said. “I just try to take what I can,
so I took what they gave me.”
Sims credited his offensive line
and said he felt more confident
than ever. He is living up to the
expectations of his coaches, and
Weis feels the same way about
Sims as he did in the spring.
“I don’t know if there is a better
back in this league,” Weis said. “If
they exist, I have not seen them
Sims was complemented by
running backs Tony Pierson,
Taylor Cox and Christian
Matthews. The three combined
for 21 carries, 94 yards and two
touchdowns on Saturday. Weis
made adjustments at halftime to
run the ball more in the second
half since it worked well in the
first half.
Kansas ran the ball 10 times
and didn’t attempt a pass in
the third quarter. Quarterback
Michael Cummings completed
three of his nine pass attempts
on the day. The Jayhawks con-
tinued to move the ball on the
Longhorns rush defense, which is
ranked last in the Big 12.
“We came out and just tried
to grind the football and make it
a smash-mouth football game,”
Cummings said. “We enjoy play-
ing physical football. We have
good backs in the backfield, and
we like watching them run.”
But the Jayhawks’ run-heavy
offense only rendered 17 points.
Players were excited on the side-
lines until Texas took the lead
with 12 seconds to go in the
Even though, statistically, Sims
had the best game of his career, it
was hard for him to be enthusias-
tic with the way the game ended.
“I wasn’t really worried about
it at the time,” Sims said. “I was
hoping we’d get this win. We
worked so hard. I know the wins
will come up soon.”
Although Weis does not accept
moral victories, players and
coaches will still look at positives
and try to build on them moving
forward. Sims likes the backfield
he is a part of and hopes the
group can help lead the team to
victories before the season ends.
“We all can do different things,”
Sims said. “We have a good com-
bination of backs that we all fit in
and work together.”
Despite the strong effort from
the running game, Kansas lost its
17th straight conference game.
The Jayhawks will get back to
practice this week and get ready
for back-to-back road games,
beginning with Baylor next
“Hopefully I’ll come in tomor-
row morning, get through this,
and then bring them in here and
go over the game, and get out
there and practice,” Weis said.
“Hopefully we can put it behind
us and start getting ready for next

Not since losing on a last-second
field goal to Rice in week two had
the Jayhawks come so close to vic-
Had 12 more seconds ticked off
the clock, Kansas would be celebrat-
ing its first conference win in 17
tries, but Texas wouldn’t have it.
Case McCoy found D.J. Grant alone
in the end zone on third-and-goal
to go up 21-17 in the Jayhawks’ lat-
est defeat.
It was the third-straight home
game that Kansas matched up
against one of the top offenses in
the country and slowed it down
to no avail. However, in the early
goings, it seemed as if the Jayhawks
were playing defense against them-
The first quarter highlighted two
muffed kickoffs, a 13-yard punt, a
fumbled snap, a Longhorns touch-
down and a first-and-goal that
turned into a fourth-and-29.
Yet, just before the game turned
into another blowout, junior run-
ning back James Sims broke through
the line for a 64-yard run early in
the second quarter and looked to
get faster on each carry after.
The junior finished the day with
176 yards — and helped set up
both Kansas scores — in large part
because of Kansas offensive line
was picking up Texas’ blitz-heavy
From then on, every time Texas
threatened on offense, there was a
usually a Jayhawk there to make a
stop — and more often than not
it was sophomore linbacker Ben
Heeney led the Jayhawks with 13
tackles, two of which kept Kansas
in the lead. After the Longhorns
reached the goal line on its first
drive of the second half, Heeney
nearly stopped them by himself. He
first held running back Johnathan
Gray on third down, and when Joe
Bergeron attempted to run it in,
Heeney and Huldon Tharp did the
same to him.
“He only knows one speed, and
it’s full speed,” coach Charlie Weis
said. “He’s one of the guys in that
situation who is capable of stopping
someone because he’s not waiting to
wrap you up he’s waiting to deliver a
blow on you.”
The Jayhawks entered the fourth
quarter with the lead for the first
time since losing to Baylor 34-31 in
overtime last season, and only once
did the Kansas momentum waver.
With Texas en route to its sec-
ond touchdown, Kansas lineback-
ers Jake Love and captain Toben
Opurum were injured on the same
play. Love didn’t return to the game,
while Opurum was
limited to only third-
and-long situations.
“With the starters
out there, we were all
clicking, and when
Love and Toben
both went down
on one play it was a
drive killer,” Heeney
said. “When you lose
Toben, he’s one of the best players
on defense and it just sucks to see
one of your brothers go down like
But instead of folding, Kansas
put together one of its best drives
on the day. Michael Cummings,
who made his second career start,
marched the Jayhawks 84-yards,
converting to set up Nick Prolago’s
29-yard field goal.
Kansas had collapsed many times
before in the fourth quarter, but not
against Texas.
“They showed some mental
toughness,” Weis said. “We’ve talked
about ‘Here we go again,’ and that’s
not how we acted.”
Texas came storming back
downfield, but not before Kansas
had a chance to seal a victory. On
McCoy’s first snap of the game-win-
ning drive,
he tossed
an errant
pass that
hit Kansas
Greg Brown
right in the
hands and
dropped to
the ground.
“I was a flat defender on that
play,” Brown said. “I looked back at
the quarterback, and he had already
thrown the ball, but he threw it low.
I tried to get low to catch it, but I
couldn’t secure it.”
Five plays later, Kansas was
backed up to its goal line. Johnathan
Graytried to run in for a score and
was again met by Heeney. On Gray’s
second try, he was found by corner-
back Tyler Patmon instead.
Weis could have called timeout
after stopping the previous Texas
runs, but wanted the defense to
keeps its rhythm and momentum.
The clock kept ticking and the pres-
sure kept building until the Grant
finally found himself alone.
“When you get down to that goal
line, especially in the situation we
were in, you have that mindset that
they can’t get in,” Tharp said. “That
adrenaline builds up in you and
it’s nice having a coach having that
confidence in us to get that stop.”
Heeney said if Texas had tried
to run, the Jayhawks would have
stopped them. Instead, McCoy
faked a handoff on third down that
the entire defense bit on, leaving
D.J. Grant by himself in the corner
of the end zone with just 12 seconds
“It’s going to hurt for a while,”
senior safety Bradley McDougald
said. “We don’t really know if we’re
heading in the right direction until
next week. The moment that guys
can play with consistency, if the
players who had great days like today
can play like this next Saturday and
the Saturday after that, then we’re in
the right direction.”

It’s been eight months since se-
nior forward Carolyn Davis tore
her ACL, and on Sunday, she was
on the court helping her Jayhawks
defeat Washburn 57-35.
Davis only played 15 minutes,
and Kansas coach Bonnie Hen-
rickson said Davis looked great
with her eight points and eight
“Tat’s as good as Carolyn has
looked, and she’s looked good in
practice.” Henrickson said. “Her
80 percent is better than most
people’s 100 percent.”
Davis said it felt good to get out
there, and she knew she had to
play hard in her limited role.
“I knew I wasn’t going to get
that many minutes,” Davis said.
“But I was just excited to be out
Senior point guard Angel Goo-
drich, who led the team with 11
points and six assists, said it was
great to have Davis back in the
starting lineup.
“She was so excited and we were
excited for her,” Goodrich said.
Te Jayhawks were able to get
out and run in transition, getting
19 points of of 29 forced turn-
“We turned them over at the
top of the key and from there it
becomes a track,” Henrickson
said. “A sprint from the top of the
key to the rim, we won that track
meet today.”
Te transition game started
with Goodrich who had six steals.
Henrickson said having a point
guard that could create easy op-
portunities leads to easy baskets
in the paint.
“Great point guards can get in
the paint, that’s what great point
guards can do,” Henrickson said.
“And they make really good deci-
sions and when Angel got in the
paint the second half, we started
putting points up.”
Sophomore guard Natalie
Knight had a good game as she
dropped 11 points and came
up with four steals. Along with
Knight, sophomore Asia Boyd
had performed well of the bench
as she got in the lane getting some
lay-ups on her to an eight point
and two rebound game.
Despite the 22-point victory,
the Jayhawks shot just more than
35 percent. Davis said it was the
opposite of what has been the
norm of the Jayhawks, having the
defense play better than the of-
“I think our defense is a lot bet-
ter,” Davis said. “We have been
struggling in practice and in the
scrimmage we had. I thought to-
day we came out and picked it up.
A lot of people were playing a lot
better today than they were in

Jayhawks defense leads to victory
Women’s bAsketbAll
Jayhawks continue to compete at home, but lose on late touchdown
ootball magic filled the air in
Memorial Stadium Saturday
as excited fans readied them-
selves for a Homecoming battle
between Kansas and Texas. For 58
minutes, that same magic fueled
the Kansas crowd’s hope for a vic-
tory, with the Jayhawks up by three
points with two minutes left.
But with 12 seconds left on
the clock, the Longhorns scored
and escaped with a 21-17 victory,
leaving Kansas fans continuing to
wonder when their team’s Big 12
losing streak would end.
Sure, Kansas is 1-7. Its only win
of the season was against an FCS
opponent. Kansas lost to a horrible
opponent in Rice.
No coach in the NCAA can
wave a magic wand and turn a
losing program into a bowl-eligi-
ble team over the course of eight
games. Winning programs don’t
happen overnight.
Kansas’ losing ways continue,
but that doesn’t mean players aren’t
improving. This Jayhawk team is
full of developing talent that will
still be there next season.
Against Texas, sophomore line-
backer Ben Heeney led the team
with 13 tackles. Heeney leads the
team in tackles with 69. Junior
linebacker Huldon Tharp contrib-
uted 11 tackles against Texas and
is fourth on the leading tackler
list with 41 in seven games. Even
freshman linebacker Jake Love
recorded six tackles to give him
26 tackles this season.
The lethal rushing attack has
leaders as well. Junior running
back James Sims continued his
excellent season with 176 rushing
yards while averaging 6.3 yards
per carry. In only five games, Sims
leads the team with 622 yards and
has scored five times.
Sophomore running back Tony
Pierson helped Sims with 51 rush-
ing yards and scored one touch-
down. Pierson trails Sims this sea-
son season, but is not far behind,
rushing for 437 yards and scoring
three times.
The team’s young talent contin-
ues to improve with each game.
Starting players earlier in their
career usually helps them develop
maturity and talent.
That was exactly the case against
Kansas never quit. The defense
looks to be anchored by a young
and talented linebacker core. The
offense continues to run through a
loaded backfield.
All of these signs point to a
possible victory down the road.
Just think that the two Big 12
victories could have been against
Oklahoma State and Texas, given
the Jayhawks’ strong performances
in both games. Those teams aren’t
the best, but still would’ve been
respectable victories considering
Kansas’ record in the past few
Despite all the losses, Kansas
isn’t a lost cause. The program
needs time to develop. If coach
Charlie Weis entered the program
and led the team to the upper
tier of the Big 12, he would be a
That’s not the case, but he does
have talented players who work
hard and develop every week.
