The national search is on for the new provost

David Shulenburger.

Shulenburger announced on
Sept. 28 that he would step down after 13
years as provost. Only one other provost in
the Association of American Universities has
been a provost at one university longer than
Choosing the new provost will be a complicat-
ed process, Aube said. The committee will have
to work diligently and effciently to recruit can-
didates and review applications in time to hire a
candidate by July 2006, when the new provost will
start work.
“We’ll have to roll up our sleeves and get right
to it,” he said.

Lawrence’s budget has had an
infusion of cash from some un-
witting sources: lawbreakers.
Lawrence’s traffc unit contrib-
uted to a 23 percent increase in
city revenue — primarily from traf-
fc tickets — from January to June
2005, compared to last year. A $10
fee added to municipal court costs
since September 2004 also con-
tributed to the increase, said Vicki
Stanwix, Lawrence Municipal
Court manager. Michael Kingsley,
Chicago senior, has contributed
to the increased revenue. Kingsley
received two speeding tickets in
Lawrence totaling $310, nearly two
years ago.
“As a college student, it’s not
great,” Kingsley said.
City offcials said the increased
number of tickets issued by the
Lawrence Police Department’s traf-
fc unit — which consists of seven
vehicles, six offcers and one ser-
geant — between 2004 and 2005
contributed to an increase in the
city’s revenue and traffc safety.
According to a 2004 annual re-
port written by Stanwix, city rev-
enue increased almost 9 percent,
or $218,667, from 2003 to 2004.
Offcers issued 5,681 more traffc
tickets in 2004 than 2003, the re-
port states. Sgt. Dan Ward of the
Lawrence Police Department said
the city had a traffc unit 20 years
ago when the city was far less pop-
A $2.2 million federal grant al-
lowed the city to form a new traffc
unit in October 2002, he said.
Sgt. Randy Roberts of the Law-
rence Police Department’s traffc
unit said the National Highway
Traffc Safety Administration pro-
vided the grant.
“City Hall was getting calls about
people speeding, and patrol was so
overwhelmed with calls that we
formed the traffc unit,” Roberts
said. “People wanted it.”
The traffc unit also takes calls
from residents who complain
about traffc violations in their
neighborhoods, Roberts said.
In addition to issuing traffc
tickets, federal law requires the
department to conduct a num-
ber of checkpoints because the
city received federal funds for
the traffc unit.

A writer’s job in today’s world is
to constantly push the boundaries.
Renowned author Salman Rush-
die has done so in his writing and
received a death sentence in 1989
from Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini
for his book “The Satanic Verses,”
which was deemed sacrilegious.
Rushdie, who spoke to a
crowd of 1,800 people Thurs-
day night at the Lied Center as
part of the Hall Center for the
Humanities lecture series, de-
scribed his book as “largely a
comic novel” and found the de-
bate diffcult to justify.
“You could describe what hap-
pened as a battle over people with
a sense of humor and people with-
out one,” Rushdie said.
He said he had always want-
ed to write on the edge between
funny and not funny. Rushdie
said confict emerged when those
who wanted to push the boundar-
ies met opposition from those who
wanted to retain the status quo.
This produced issues of infringe-
ment on freedom of speech.
“You don’t bother to think
about free speech when every-
body has it,” Rushdie said.
This clashing of ideals often
emerged from the debate be-
tween rationalists and religious
fanatics, Rushdie said.
He described himself as “merci-
fully free of religion” and went on
to comment about the evolution
debate in Kansas, saying that as
a result of his upbringing he had
never had doubts about the evolu-
tion theory.
“I gather there are some parts
of Kansas where the Big Bang
Theory did not take place,”
Rushdie said.
Despite his personal beliefs,
Rushdie said he often considered
Hindu mythology and Islam when
writing because of his Indian roots.
There are an estimated 300 mil-
lion deities incorporated into
Indian culture, and Rushdie said
that it was a large population to
discredit, imaginary or not.
“There are all kinds of things
that don’t exist, like George
Bush’s brain,” Rushdie said jok-
On a more serious note, he
said he was concerned about
the move of religion into the
public sphere.
“I think it’s a pretty bad time
for those of us who believe that
superstition should not rule the
world,” Rushdie said.
The power of religion can do
harm, he said, and no single reli-
gion was to blame because there
were great disputes even within
religions — not just between

“Stories are used in a daily way,” said novelist Salman Rushdie, while ad-
dressing 1,800 people at the Lied Center Thursday. “It’s a method that people
experience their own reality.” Rushdie, who spoke as part of the Hall Center
for the Humanities Lecture Series, talked about a variety of topics from Presi-
dent Bush to his opinion on the book, “The DiVinci Code.”

Another top University of
Kansas administrator has an-
nounced her resignation.
The dean of libraries, Stella
Bentley, announced Thursday
that she would retire at the
end of June 2006. The Univer-
sity plans to conduct a national
search to hire a new dean before
Bentley leaves.
Denise Stephens, vice pro-
vost for information services,
said the University would form
a search committee sometime
within the next two weeks in
hopes of having its pick of the
best candidates available.
Stephens also said the Uni-
versity would try to fill the
position early enough for
Bentley to help with the tran-
sition process.
Bentley, who has held her po-
sition since 2001, said she was
ready to pursue goals for which
she had not previously had time.
She said she was interested in
volunteer work. She also said
she was proud of what KU Li-
braries had accomplished dur-
ing her time in Lawrence.
“I think we’ve made a huge
amount of progress,” Bentley
said. “We really increased the
amount of information avail-
able to the campus commu-

pressed with what Bentley

“She has been able to make a
lot of signifcant improvements
to the system and the facilities at
a time when university libraries
across the country were strug-
gling with budgets and other re-
strictions,” Stephens said.
David Shulenburger, pro-
vost and executive vice chan-
cellor, said in a press release
that Bentley’s work had pro-
vided an opportunity for the
libraries to succeed even after
she left.
One of Bentley’s accomplish-
ments during her tenure was to

sity after serving as the dean of

Dean announces resignation

Aaron Hood moved into a
two-bedroom apartment and is
now looking for a roommate to
fll the extra space. The Kansas
City, Mo., junior, is still exhaust-
ing all the traditional search
methods, but by next semester
placing a classifed ad may no
longer be part of the search.
Recent funding to the Off-Cam-
pus Living Resource Center is al-
lowing the organization to create
a Web site that will help students
fnd apartments and roommates.
The site will also help familiarize
students with legal problems they
could potentially encounter by
signing a lease.
Hood said a site like this
would make his search for a
roommate much easier.
“You could be more specifed
in what you want,” he said.
The center’s site has been un-
der construction since last May
when Student Senate off-cam-
pus representatives advocated a
site that could help students in
the hunt for housing.
Jessica Mortinger, Hays junior
and off-campus chair, said the
group had plans for organizing
the site into different pages that
will focus on different resources.
Students will be able to locate
apartments, check convenience
to bus routes and access infor-
mation that will help in fnding
the ideal roommate.
Mortinger said students nor-
mally found apartments in the clas-
sifed ads where bigger companies
could afford more advertisements.
She said she wanted to give
smaller companies an equal op-
portunity to reach students and
ensure that students didn’t think
big companies were the only op-
The center also wants to prevent
legal problems between students
and landlords. To do this, the site
will include evaluations by students
of landlords they’ve dealt with.
Michele Kessler, attorney and
associate director for Legal Servic-
es for Students, said students and
landlords most commonly were in-
volved in disputes over security de-
posits, damages and maintenance.
She said by increasing aware-
ness of the options out there and
of what students could expect
from landlords before contracts
were signed, potential disputes
could be prevented.
Emily Black, McPherson se-
nior and off-campus co-chair, said
the project was a way to increase
awareness of the center.
She said the Web site would
increase student awareness of the
resources the offce has to offer.
The group has big plans and
members hope they can come to
life, Mortinger said.
“We have big dreams. We
hope to open a lot of doors to
students,” she said.

Take a break from the usual
party and drinking scene of
Lawrence and check out one
of the most recent art shows to
open up in town.
The Olive Gal-
lery and Art Supply,
15 E. 8th St., will
feature art infu-
enced by the horror
movie genre, and
more specifcally,
zombie movies.
The exhibit will be
open until Oct. 26.
Three local print-
makers, Adam Jef-
fers, Patrick Giroux
and Rachel James
are featured in the
The Olive Gallery and Art
Supply is owned by two Uni-
versity of Kansas students and a
doctor and artist from Halstead.
Titled “The Walking Undead: 2
Legit 2 Quit,” the show focuses on
the gory and cheesy. The works are
primarily inspired by the 1960s B-
horror movie legacy.
The best way to describe the
show is morbid with a dark
sense of humor. Each work fo-
cuses on the re-animated dead,
and each has a bit of cheek.
Jeffers’ work includes a comic
panel and a trilogy of portraits.
The panel is a 1950s-style hor-
ror comic, and the portraits are
of two zombies and a terrifed
Another tongue-in-cheek work
by Jeffers is “Dad Rides a Pale
Horse,” a play on the classic im-
age of death riding the remains of
his skeletal steed. The cadaverous
horse is there in all its emaciated
glory. But replacing the classic im-
age of the hooded horseman is a
rotund, bespectacled, middle-aged
claims adjuster, wielding a deadly
Giroux’s work plays with the
idea of conficting emotions by
placing the undead mingling
with adorable ghosts. Also in his
series of zombie works, Giroux
has three photos with ghostly
images painted
across the like-
nesses of hor-
rifed friends.
Each photo has
been enhanced
by “comic-strip
style” dots, in-
spired by Andy
Warhol’s work
of the 1970s.
Of the art-
ists featured,
James’ etchings
are the most
morbid of the bunch. Her larg-
est work features the semi-col-
or, semi-black and white depic-
tion of a young girl playing with
bloody bones.
A wolf-like animal is next
to the girl. James’ two smaller
works feature simple drawings
of the same wolf creature fea-
tured in the larger work.
Although there are only 15
pieces currently on display,
this is defnitely worth a look.
Whether it’s to get you in the
mood for Halloween, or simply
to satisfy a morbid obsession
with reanimated fesh, it’s im-
pressive to see this kind of local
Prints and T-shirts of Giroux’s
work are available for purchase,

Ensemble to begin season
By Malinda OsBOrne
Kansan staff writer
The KU Symphony Orchestra
will start its 2005-2006 concert
season with a performance at
7:30 tonight in the Lied Center.
In preparation for the perfor-
mance, students such as Jesse
Henkensiefken, Topeka sec-
ond-year graduate student, play
at least six hours a week, not
including the numerous hours
they spend practicing in their
spare time.
“This is a big deal, so we
spend an absurd amount of time
practicing for it,” he said. “And
then we drink afterward.”
Despite all of the hard work
and effort, Nicholas Uljanov,
director of Orchestral Activities
and conductor of the symphony
orchestra, said the orchestra
continued to struggle to attract
younger people.
“There is a university in Ger-
many that is much, much small-
er than the University of Kan-
sas, but its music hall, which
holds 2,000 people, is full with
students every week,” Uljanov
said. “I want that kind of enthu-
siasm here.”
The Lied Center holds nearly
Uljanov came to the Univer-
sity two years ago with 17 years
experience as a conductor. He
said he was already proud of the
students because of their dedi-
cation to working hard for the
“Unlike professional musi-
cians, these students have not
played together for many years,
and any of this music before,
so it takes a lot of work to get
the performance right,” Uljanov
said. “But they have taken up
the challenge and practiced
many hours. It has certainly
paid off.”
Henkensiefken agreed that
playing an orchestral piece with
college students made the per-
formance especially diffcult.
“There’s always people com-
ing and going. The longest you
might have a full orchestra to-
gether is three years,” he said.
“Sometimes this can create a
strenuous environment.”
The orchestra will begin the
night with the “Overture of the
School for Scandal” by Samuel
Barber, a 20th century Ameri-
can composer of classical mu-
sic. Barber’s work has been de-
scribed as light and full of color
and brilliance.
Scott Watson, professor of
music who teaches euphonium
and tuba, is the featured solo-
ist for the evening. He will per-
form George Frederick Handel’s
“Concerto No. 3 in G Minor” on
the tuba. Watson acknowledged
that most may not think of the
tuba as a solo instrument.
Watson said people didn’t real-
ize the tuba was a mellow instru-
ment, unlike what people were
used to hearing in a large outside
ensemble. “There is an elegant
side to it where it can be beauti-
ful and resonant. It’s uniquely un-
usual in a good way,” he said.
The concert will end with a per-
formance of Dmitiri Shostakovich’s
“Symphony No. 5 in D Minor.”
The orchestra will have two
more performances at the Lied
Center this year, one on Nov. 3
and the other on Feb. 28, 2006.

Friday, Oct. 7, 2005:
Often, you might want to explore and
question what is going on around you.
Do so, and take nothing and no one
for granted. Sometimes co-workers
or associates surprise you. For your
well-being, you need to learn how to
handle tension and how to change this
year. You could be stressed out often.
Accept new technology and don’t
fght it. If you are single, you could be
gooey-eyed over someone before you
know it. Realize that you might not
be seeing the whole of this person. A
romance might be very special. If you
are attached, your frst child could
play an important role in your year.
Also learn to communicate on an even
deeper level with each other. SAGIT-
TARIUS is always cheerful with you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)
HHHH Sweet dreams could inspire
you to explore a different attitude
or style. Know that everything isn’t
black-and-white. Some friends or as-
sociates might have such imaginative
ideas that they are diffcult to harness.
Tonight: Opt for an adventure.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
HHHH Others look at you much
differently than you think. You
could be a bit hard on yourself. A
friend has a very screwy way of
demonstrating his or her feelings.
Right now, work with a boss who is
inspired. Tonight: Accept a dinner
invitation for just you!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
HHHH Your ability to relax will help
many relate to you. Unfortunately, you
might have to respond to someone
who is quite unpredictable. You can do
it. Take the high road. Understand this
person better. Tonight: You might have
too many invitations to sort through.
Poor you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
HHH News could jolt you. Be a
troubleshooter, a solution-finder.
Your creativity and imagination
can bounce over a problem. An as-
sociate, friend or partner strongly
supports you. He or she can be
quite imaginative too. Tonight: Ease
out of work slowly.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
HHHHH You wake up on the right
side of the bed, ready for today and
the oncoming weekend. A partner or
associate could do the unexpected,
especially with funds. Remember, this
could be good too. Flow. Tonight: Love
the moment.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
HHH Knowing when to keep a low
profle might be more important than
you realize. Others express their
unusually erratic behavior. Plug into
what you enjoy and feel successful at.
Tonight: Close to home.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
HHHH You have a way with people
that draws in much more of what you
want. You might need to make the frst
move, especially with an unpredict-
able co-worker or associate. You can
fnd solutions. Trust yourself. Tonight:
Out and about.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
HHH Knowing when to retreat and
when not to dominate or push a proj-
ect could be important. Avoid any risks
right now, fnancial or emotional. You
could have a backfre. Stay within the
playing feld you know. Tonight: Decide
how much you have to spend frst.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
HHHHH Though the cards are
in your hands, you might feel a bit
uncomfortable with a family member
who continually upsets the apple
cart. You aren’t going to change this
person, so go off and enjoy yourself.
Tonight: The world is your oyster.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
HHH Knowing when to vanish might
be critical to your well-being. A friend
means well, though somehow might
be party to some unexpected news or
events. Know that this too will pass.
Ignore what is going on. Tonight: Fol-
low a fnancial hunch.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
HHHHH Friends play a huge role in
the Water Bearer’s life, and today is
no exception. You fnd that you need
to be careful with how far you stretch
your fnances. Find more creative
and dynamic ways to enjoy your pals.
Tonight: Where the party is.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
HHH You tend to create uproar wher-
ever you go, whether it is intentional
or not. Recognize the impact of this
behavior on you in the long run. Others
make judgments. Problems could
ensue with a boss or someone you
need to please. Tonight: Don’t count
on being in early.

the associated press
popular TV series, a clothing
line, an upcoming flm and a de-
but CD, its been suggested that
Sara Paxton could be crowding
Hilary Duff for the title of pop
culture teen queen.
But Paxton is too busy to con-
cern herself with such who’s-
in-and-who’s-out speculation.
Back in her hometown recently
to shoot a video for her album,
the perky 17-year-old is trying
to fgure out how to balance a
senior year of high school in
Los Angeles with her Canadian-
based TV show, “Darcy’s Wild
Life.” The show airs at 6:30 p.m.
Mondays on the Discovery Kids
cable channel.
She’s casually dressed in a
gray pullover shirt, blue jeans
and open-toed shoes as she sits
for an interview in her publicist’s
offce. Also present are “Darcy”
creator Stan Rogow and Pax-
ton’s father, Steve.
She could be wearing some-
thing from her new “Darcy’s” line
of casual Western wear — “if I
could ft into it,” she says, sound-
ing just mildly exasperated.
The clothes are being mar-
keted for preteen and younger
teenage girls, who make up the
core of Paxton’s fan base.

Casting call: one audience ready for great show
Kevin McKernan/KANSAN
Does anyone remember what
happened to those three people
who got snowed in at that cabin
in Alabama a few years back? Or
do you remember what a nerd the
young Hugh Hefner was? Or how
about the blind guy who poisoned
that stripper and buried her in his
back yard? No, probably not.
English Alternative Theatre,
known to many as EAT, has been
around for fifteen years now. To
date, they’ve performed more than
100 productions and 50 staged
readings, focusing primarily on
original scripts by KU students.
That fact alone is incredible.
The climate for original stu-
dent-written scripts in American
universities is bleak. Most student
playwrights consider themselves
lucky to have their script read,
while EAT, which is spearheaded
by English professor Paul Stephen
Lim, not only reads them but ac-
tually produces them. The oppor-
tunities provided to KU student
playwrights are unparalleled.
I should know. I’ve received
two productions already, the sec-
ond of which, The Holocaust Kid,
is playing at the Lawrence Arts
Center this weekend.
Money is poured into these
original scripts; there’s set design,
rehearsal space, costumes and
countless other details.
All of the elements of a great
theatrical experience are present,
with one very notable exception,
the audience.
Granted, EAT does sell seats
to some loyal patrons, but many
students and faculty simply ignore
the work being done by the com-
In The Holocaust Kid alone,
there is a director, a stage man-
ager, a costume designer, a set de-
signer, a producer; not to mention
five actors who have spent every
night for months toiling over their
scripts, learning their blocking,
studying crash courses in boxing
and developing their characters,
but few will ever know this.
Stop anyone on campus and
ask them how far the KU men’s
basketball team got in the NCAA
tournament last year, or the what
the football team’s current record
is, and 95 percent of them will
Then ask that same person how
many KU playwrights have taken
their work to the Kennedy Center
in Washington D.C. and watch for
a blank stare.
Well, the answer is five, and it
all started with EAT. Stop them
next week and ask where Jack (the
boxer from my play) disappeared
to last fall when he was supposed
to start his freshman year at Yale
and, well, you get the idea.
Is theatre as exciting as college
basketball? No, it isn’t. But would
the KU vs. Mizzou game be excit-
ing if the stands were empty? The
audience makes the difference.
The actors feed off of the gasps,
the whispers, the laughter.
This weekend, there are two
adjudicators coming in to watch
our two one-acts, the other being
Edward Albee’s Zoo Story.
They will decide on the success
and future of the shows, whether
they will advance to regional com-
petition and then to the national
festival. If these two adjudicators
hear crickets when they should be
hearing enthusiastic applause for
the great performances, then it’s
curtains for us.
I’m not asking people to come
for me. My dream, to have a cast
and crew make my words come
alive on stage, has been realized.
Come for your fellow KU stu-
dents who make these shows
happen. The same students who
deserve support, applause and the
same chance to advance in com-
petition that the Jayhawks have
every year.
✦ Tim Macy
Graduate student
Writer of The Holocaust Kid
I begin this editorial by ex-
pressing my extreme disap-
pointment in Mr. Stowell and
Mr. Soukup for not researching
their opinions before publishing
I will attempt to correct the
erroneous statements that have
been made, as well as offer the
opinion of someone who was ac-
tually in New Orleans.
First, I will address the idea of
taxation to fix New Orleans.
The President has stated that
he has no plans to increase taxes
in order to help rebuild the Gulf
Coast, instead, he has proposed
spending cuts in areas which
include the Army Corps of En-
gineers and Medicaid, as well as
$6.1 million in tax breaks to help
Gulf Coast businesses resume
their daily work.
I am aware that the increase of
taxes is not the president’s deci-
sion, but that of Congress. I am
confident in the accuracy of the
opinion of Jeb Hensarling who
stated in the Washington Post,
“We do not have to raise taxes.”
Now that we have that taken
care of, I would like to bring no-
tice to the fact that many things
Mr. Stowell said in his editorial
on Monday, were incorrect. In-
deed, a position was taken on
the levee system before the disas-
ter. In the late 1960’s, after Hur-
ricane Camille devastated New
Orleans, the federal government
joined up with the state and local
governments to form a task force
to improve the system.
After a flood in 1995, the lo-
cal governments also joined the
Army Corps of Engineers to form
SELA (the Southeast Louisiana
Urban Flood Control Project).
Shortly afterward, $430 million
was allocated to shoring levees
and building pumping stations
and another $50 million was
given to local aid.
Funding began to dry up in
2003 and $250 million worth of
projects were left unfinished.
In 2004, SELA was given
only 10.4 million dollars, down
sharply from the 36.5 million it
had previously received, this was
barely enough to cover contrac-
tor’s salaries. In 2005, Pres. Bush
allocated a mere 3.9 million dol-
lars to complete a project that
was designed to strengthen the
barriers between Lake Poncha-
train and the city. Twenty million
dollars was needed. For the re-
cord, the levees themselves never
Levees are earthen walls built
up along the banks of the river
and the lake, they’ve been there
since the 1700’s. The failure was
in the canals, floodwalls designed
to re-route water around the city.
It was common knowledge with-
in the city and within SELA that
these canals needed fixing.
How dare you, Mr. Stowell,
suggest that New Orleans have to
pay for the creation and repair of
our levees when the federal gov-
ernment, specifically the Army
Corps of Engineers, was respon-
sible for their construction and
maintenance to begin with!
You clearly know nothing
of the systems, or the financial
plight of the city of New Or-
leans. twenty-three percent of
the city lives below the poverty
level, and therefore pays no taxes
to the government.
I, personally, would appreci-
ate the end of editorials calling
for the city of New Orleans to
save itself, and boldly stating that
you refuse to help us, and are an-
gered that your tax dollars might
go there. I have a hard time be-
lieving that most of you under-
stand what we’re going through.
This is the greatest natural disas-
ter of our time.
There are 22 people reading
this who can relate, who under-
stand the feeling of leaving your
home knowing you may have
nothing to come back to, sitting
in a hotel room watching the
city you love, the place you call
home, destroyed.
There are 22 people reading
this who know the feeling of
watching your fellow citizens on
the riverwalk dying of starvation,
thirst and heat exhaustion and
wondering how many of them
you’ve come in contact with.
Is the boy that you taught read-
ing at Crocker still there? What
about the lady at the drug store
that always called you “baby,”
or the cab driver who, for some
reason, was always burning in-
cense? Are they alive? You can’t
describe the feeling until you’ve
been there.
One day, you get a phone call,
and the person on the other side
says, “I got into your house, I’m
sorry, there’s nothing left.” I came
back to this state with nothing
but a duffel bag and my laptop.
I moved to New Orleans per-
manently last summer, and ev-
erything I had is gone. I am start-
ing over, but I have what is most
important to me, my friends, my
family and my city, as decimated
as it may be.
I am extraordinarily thank-
ful that my family could afford
to help me put my life back to-

The department has completed

also conducts saturation patrols
during which it targets drivers under

traffc tickets, Roberts said. The traf-

to continue funding the traffc unit

between the two schools on

ever recorded against Nebraska,
losing 73 matches with one tie
Kansas volleyball coach Ray

have to be perfect in order to

“Nebraska’s just been really
good. Their record against ev-

hitter Sarah Paven. She was
named the Big 12’s preseason
player of the year after earning
freshman of the year and all-
conference honors last season.
She averages 3.64 kills per game
and has scored a team-high
218.5 points this season.

John Cook has led the Huskers

Nebraska has won six out of
the last seven Big 12 champi-

Coupled with its perfect 2004
conference slate, Nebraska is
26-0 over the last two years.
Another obstacle for Kansas
will be the absence of junior
outside hitter Jana Correa. She
suffered a left knee injury in the

Junior reserve Megan Hill is

Kansas faces its season’s turn-
ing point this weekend, hosting
both Oklahoma schools, start-
ing with the No. 24 Cowgirls to-
night and fnishing with the No.
25 Sooners on Sunday.
Determined to fnd a way out
of a three-game winless streak,
the Jayhawks
(5-5-2, 1-2-1 Big 12) will
match up against strong num-
bers to get there.
Although the season looks
dim at the moment, Kansas isn’t
“I don’t really feel like there
are any problems,” senior for-
ward Nicole Braman said.
“We’re on the brink of doing
something great.”
Sitting at the four spot in the
Big 12 Conference, Oklahoma
State (9-1-2, 2-1-0 Big 12) enters
tonight’s game on the momen-
tum of a 5-0 victory. Oklahoma
State buried Texas Tech last
Sunday after suffering its only
loss at the hands of Colorado,
1-0 last Friday.
“I think the results, to be hon-
est, are because anybody can beat
anybody,” Kansas soccer coach
Mark Francis said of the variance
in the Big 12 standings.
The women from Stillwater
are shooting for a 47 percent
shot on goal mark. They have
also scored 10 times the num-
ber of goals this season than
all of their opponents com-
bined. The Cowgirls have 40,
their opponents, four.
“This weekend we are playing
two teams that have been very
successful so far this season,”
Francis said. “For us to do well
against them will really be good
for our confdence.”
Junior forward Jesyca
Rosholt leads the Cowgirls
and the Big 12 with 11 goals,
after scoring twice in the Tex-
as Tech victory. Combined
with her five assists, Rosholt
totals 27 points at this point
in the season.
Named Big 12 Defensive
Player of the Week for two
consecutive weeks, freshman
goalkeeper Bettina Gross-
mann is one of three different
Cowgirl keepers to start this
season. In four starts, the na-
tive German has 11 saves and
a .32 GAA.
“Everybody in the Big 12
is awesome,” Braman said.
“We’re not expecting anything
less than a great game from
both teams.”
Sunday brings the other Okla-
homa crew, the Big 12-leading
Oklahoma Sooners.
On a nine-game winning
streak, the Sooners (11-1-0, 3-0-
0 Big 12) are coming off a 2-1
overtime victory at the expense
of Colorado last Sunday. Their
only loss was a 2-0 decision
against Wisconsin more than a
month ago.

’Hawks to face formidable foes
After a week of speculation, Kan-
sas’ quarterback situation has actually
gotten more confusing.
Kansas football coach Mark Mangi-
no named senior quarterback Jason
Swanson as the offensive scout team
player of the week, and was asked if he,
too, was being considered for the start-
ing job Saturday against Kansas State.
“He’s limited in some ways, and
that’s why he’s down on the scout team
right now,” Mangino said. “At this point
in time, I fnd it highly unlikely that he
will play in this particular game.”
One down, four quarterbacks left to
The remaining candidates: Senior Bri-
an Luke, junior Adam Barmann, fresh-
man Kerry Meier, and freshman Marcus
Herford, who took a redshirt last season.
According to Mangino, the criteria
for selecting the starter would be to
evaluate the week of practice and go
from there.
Adam Barmann
An individual associated with the
team said Barmann took all but a
handful of snaps with the frst-team
offense Thursday. Still, Mangino told
reporters Thursday that he had not yet
named a starter.
Barmann saw time in relief of Luke
last week but didn’t take advantage of
his opportunity, and he failed to spark
the Kansas offense. Mangino said he
hasn’t written off Barmann, but go-
ing back to Barmann seems like the
wrong decision.
Mangino has never allowed Bar-
mann to throw the ball downfeld,
and the Jayhawks will need more than
bubble screens and shovel passes to
defeat the Wildcats.
He also owns zero conference vic-
Still, he is familiar with hostile road
environments, like Texas A&M and
Oklahoma, so his experience could be
a factor.
Chances of Starting: Very high
Kerry Meier
The most popular player on every
football team is often the backup quar-
terback, and it’s no different at Kansas.
Perhaps Meier has looked better
than the other quarterbacks in prac-
tice and deserves a start, but there are
obstacles in the way.
Mangino said Meier’s family would
play a large role as to whether Meier
takes a redshirt this season, and con-
vincing them to let him give up his
redshirt could be diffcult.
He also has no college game experi-
ence. Throwing him into his frst game
at Kansas State isn’t the learning envi-
ronment a freshman needs. It would
have been better to have given him his
frst playing time during Kansas’ non
conference games, but he was suffer-
ing from a heart condition and was
unable to take the feld.
Mangino has been vague as to
whether he is considering Meier for
the Kansas State game or later in the
season, but his philosophy has always
been to play his best 11 players.
“I don’t feel like today that I’m
pressed to make an absolute decision
about whether or not I’m going to red-
shirt him,” Mangino said. “We’re just
going to keep going day-to-day, and if
we feel good about Kerry playing, then
we’ll insert him in the game.”
Chances of Starting: Medium
Marcus Herford
Herford is the wildcard in this de-
cision. He has played in each of the
last three games, but only as a change-
of-pace quarterback who can run the
During his series at Texas Tech,
he was clearly the most mobile
quarterback, but also the most in-
experienced. If the Kansas offensive
line breaks down, he’s the only one
who can make something good hap-
But if the quarterback has time to
throw Saturday, and his scrambling
ability is not needed, he might not be
the best choice for throwing the ball
downfeld or reading the defensive
Chances of Starting: Low
Brian Luke
He had a bad game against Texas
Tech, but he has been the most con-
sistent quarterback this season. He
also is the only candidate with a road
victory, which was last year’s season
ending game at Missouri.
He also played well against Texas,
last year, and has proved to be the best
quarterback when he is hot.
Luke’s touchdown pass to Mark
Simmons during last week’s game was
worthy of an NFL quarterback, but
for every quality throw he made, there
was an equally poor one.
Mangino attributed this to over-
analyzing the game.
Still, the only time Kansas has
been productive on offense has been
when Luke is at his best, and he gives
the Jayhawks their best chance of vic-

Two rivalries to heat up this weekend
Travis: Now that we’re into the
Big 12 conference season, these
games are going to get more com-
petitive and more diffcult to pick.

Kellis: Well, let’s get started
with what is traditionally the
league’s game of the year, the
Red River Shootout.

Travis: I don’t think it will be
much of a “shootout” this year.
More like a Longhorn blowout. I
like Texas because Oklahoma has
been struggling, while Texas has a
major victory at Ohio State.

Kellis: The Sooners came to
life last weekend with their vic-
tory against the Kansas State
Wildcats. Freshman quarterback
Rhett Bomar is looking good,
and don’t forget Bob Stoops
hasn’t lost to Mack Brown in
fve years. I’m sure he’s got a
special game plan ready to make
it six straight victories.

Travis: But a victory against
Kansas State, who forgot it
had a punter, is not impressive.
Stoops defnitely has the coach-
ing advantage, but the talent is
overwhelmingly in Texas’ favor.

Kellis: So, if Kansas goes on
the road and defeats Kansas
State it won’t be impressive?

Travis: Wait a minute. That’s a
different situation. First of all,
we’re dealing with a rivalry. Sec-
ond, any road victory by Kansas
is impressive, because Kansas
football coach Mark Mangino
has only one conference road

Kellis: On that note, I think
Mangino will get his second on
Saturday. The Jayhawks might only
win 2-0, but their defense is just too
strong to lose to the Wildcats.

Travis: I agree. Junior running
back Jon Cornish and the offense
will be able to out score Kansas
State by at least a touchdown be-
cause Kansas’ defense has a chance
to shut out the Wildcats.
Kellis: Speaking of cats, Mis-
souri will have a tough road
game at Oklahoma State. I’m
going with the Tigers, though.
The Cowboys lost 34-0 to the
Colorado Buffaloes last week.

Travis: I don’t think Missouri’s
going to have a tough time. With
Baylor’s good performance last
week at Texas A&M, I think
Oklahoma State is the worst
team in the Big 12. Missouri will
win by double digits.

Kellis: Those Bears will hit the
road again this weekend, as they
take on the Iowa State Cyclones,
who lost a double overtime game
at Nebraska last week. The Cy-
clones won’t lose two in a row, but
this game will be close.
Travis: The Bears will have
a huge letdown after last week’s
disappointing overtime loss. Their
hangover will lead to at least a 20-
point victory for the Cyclones.

Kellis: That’s nothing com-
pared to how badly Nebraska
will lose this weekend. The
‘Huskers can’t score, and even
with this game being at home,
Texas Tech will again approach
the 70 point total it put up last
year on Nebraska.

Travis: Did the oil fumes from
West Texas kill some of your brain
cells last week? Nebraska’s defense
is comparable to Kansas’. Plus, the
game is in Lincoln, Neb. I’m going
with the ‘Huskers on a last-second
feld goal.

Kellis: Wait a minute. It did
smell bad in parts of Lubbock,
but they’re making great strides to
convert to natural wind energy out
there. My brain cells are just fne.
Travis: All right, you’re entitled to
your opinion, no matter how crazy
it is. I just hope you put some more
thought into the game between
Colorado and Texas A&M. Colo-
rado has all the momentum and
the home-feld advantage. I’m go-
ing with the Buffaloes.

Kellis: I am taking the Buf-
faloes as well, not just in this
game, but also the Buffalo of
Buffalo who are taking on fel-
low bottom feeder Akron.

Travis: Uh, I’m pretty sure
they’re the Buffalo Bulls. By
the way, who made us pick this
game? I don’t know anything
about either team. But I guess
I’ll go with Akron just because
you picked Buffalo.

Kellis: When you’re sports ed-
itor, you can pick the games.

The Kansas softball team, riding high
off an undefeated preseason record, will
play its fnal two games of the fall season
this weekend at Arrocha Ballpark.
Kansas is scheduled to host Johnson
County Community College and Mis-
souri Western on Sunday.
The Jayhawks have yet to lose this fall,
boasting a record of 8-0, not including
their 13-1 victory in a scrimmage against
William Jewell.
Statistically, it doesn’t appear the Jay-
hawks have been tested in fall ball.
Through eight games, the pitching staff
has allowed only 12 hits, while the Jay-
hawks have outscored their opponents
Missouri Western, a Division II pro-
gram, earned a record of 48-20 last sea-
son while Johnson County enjoyed simi-
lar success, as it fnished the season with
a 47-14 record.
Kansas softball coach Tracy Bunge
said she didn’t know what to expect from
Missouri Western, but she anticipated a
good game against Johnson County.
“They’re usually a pretty solid juco
team, and they’re usually pretty-well
coached,” Bunge said.
This weekend will be the last opportu-
nity for the Jayhawks to face other teams
before the spring season begins.
Bunge said she hoped her team
would be put in situations this week-
end that would allow it to try various
strategies on the field, like bunting and
Senior shortstop Destiny Frankenstein
said Johnson County would give the Jay-
hawks stiff competition.
“They come out and bring their A-
game when they play us so we know that
we’re going to have to step it up a little
bit,” she said.
The trio of pitchers such as freshman
Valerie George, junior Kassie Hum-
phreys, and senior Serena Settlemier have
formed a pitching staff that has dominat-
ed the opposition this fall season.
It’s back to practice for the Jayhawks
after Sunday’s games, meaning this week-
end will be the fnal opportunity for the
pitchers to test their arms against batters
other than their teammates.
“I think the pitchers are getting pretty
comfortable with where they’re at and
how many innings they’re pitching,”
Frankenstein said.
Bunge has mixed up the defense this
fall, inserting players at multiple posi-
tions in order to determine a starting
lineup for the spring.
Frankenstein said establishing a start-
ing lineup was more diffcult when the
entire team was playing well.
“Everybody’s doing a good job, so
it’s really hard to not play someone,”
Frankenstein said. “Its really about
being comfortable with each other out

phers, coached by Kelly Kre-
mer, Terry Niezner and Jason
Baumann, fnished sixth out of
11 teams at the Big Ten Confer-

also fnished the 2004-2005 sea-
son No. 23 in the College Swim
Coaches Association poll, pub-
lished by USA Today.
“This is a good opportunity
to swim a top 25 team,” Kansas
swimming coach Clark Camp-
bell said. “Mentally, we get up,
but we’re still physically early
in the season. It will be a great
early season test.”
The hype surrounding Min-

Kansas. Senior co-captain Gina

is always in the back of our

“Clark has been talking to us
about how to be mentally tough,
also,” Gnatzig said.
Gnatzig said the Golden Go-
phers had fast sprinters but the

they may have momentum in

STILLWATER, Okla. — After
his frst loss as Oklahoma State’s

plenty of input on how to make
the Cowboys’ no-huddle offense
more effective.
Two days after Oklahoma
State’s 34-0 loss to Colorado,
the frst-year coach had already
received 50 e-mails from fans.
“People are saying the offense
is no good, you need to huddle
up,” Gundy said.
Gundy said most of the e-
mails were negative, but some of
the writers knew what they were
talking about.
“I read my e-mails. I read
them not because I want to fre

read them because I want infor-

get is good information,” Gundy
The loss to Colorado was the
frst time since 2000 that Okla-
homa State was shut out and the
frst time it was held scoreless at

Fans hate no-huddle offense
By Jim Litke
the associated press
One picture of an old quarter-
back is worth a thousand words
of warning.
The iconic image for today’s
NFL fans might well be T.O.
with his mouth in gear, but to
an earlier generation, a single
black-and-white photo fxed
what the game was about: Y.A.
Tittle on his knees in the shad-
ow of the goalposts, his blue
New York Giants helmet lying
on the ground a few feet away,
a trickle of blood creasing his
bald pate.
When that image was cap-
tured in September of 1964,
Tittle was a month shy of his
38th birthday and beginning
his 17th year in pro football.
He had no way of knowing
it at that moment, but his time
had already run out. Ahead lay
a season so brutal and bad that
he’d quit the game as soon as it
was over.
Vinny Testaverde will be al-
most four years older than that
when he settles in over center
Sunday at the Meadowlands.
He’ll be a Jet again, which is
only ftting, because that’s how
his most ardent supporters and
detractors will remember him,
At the moment, though, it’s
an even-money bet which side
will be happier when this ex-
periment ends.
“Everything is old,” Tes-
taverde chuckled Thursday, “not
just my arm.”
His teammates claim they got
the opposite impression — if
you heard the phrase, ‘same old
Vinny’ in the Jets locker room
once, you heard it a dozen times
— but what did anyone really
expect them to say?
With a 1-3 record, they
haven’t blocked well enough
to unclog the running game,
and they couldn’t prevent
the first two quarterbacks on
their depth chart, Chad Pen-
nington and Jay Fiedler, from
getting knocked all the way to
the sideline.
Maybe that’s why coach Herm
Edwards warned his squad to
worry less about posing for
alumni photos with Testaverde
and concentrate more on pro-
tecting him.
“It’s going to take everyone
around Vinny to be successful,”
Edwards said Thursday, “not
just him.”
If that sounds as if the
coach is already laying off
some responsibility for bring-
ing Testaverde back, there’s a
Edwards said he knew
something drastic had to
change after watching third-
stringer Brett Bollinger run
for his life last week against
the Baltimore Ravens.
But he didn’t rush right out
and call Vinny. Screwing up the
courage to do that, to switch to
Plan D in yet another desper-
ate bid to revive the Jets’ sea-
son, took the better part of two
Testaverde would have been
happy to save Edwards the
time and trouble. Turns out he
watched Bollinger get chewed
up too, and even from the safety
of his couch, fgured he could
do better.
But Testaverde didn’t rush
out and call Edwards, either.
He left the organization af-
ter playing in fewer than half
the games in the 2003 sea-
son, convinced he’d slid too
far down the depth chart to
make it worth his while. In-
stead, Testaverde hooked up
with his old Jets coach, Bill
Parcells, in Dallas and had
another productive if unsatis-
fying season.
It’s anyone’s guess whether
Testaverde would have been
moved to re-enlist anywhere
else but New York, but at
least there he got some en-
Jets receiver Wayne Chrebet
and he still get their families
together for dinners, and that’s
where the reunion tour idea
picked up steam.
“I was thinking how the of-
fense was going,” Chrebet re-
called. “I said, ‘Vinny, this is
perfect for you. You just drop
back there and throw it to the
open guy. Just like we played
it back in the day.
“At that point we were just
hoping,” he added. “Then it be-
came a reality.”
Edwards finally got around
to calling Tuesday morning,
and 15 minutes later, Tes-
taverde reported for his phys-
By kickoff, he may not
know the offense, or that he’s
only the second-oldest QB
in the league behind Doug
Flutie, soon to turn 43.
He may not know he’s the
fourth-oldest quarterback to
start a game in the Super Bowl
era, or even the sad endings that
Tittle, and Johnny Unitas, wrote
for their careers.
But Testaverde can take some
comfort knowing the Jets can’t
do much worse with him than
without him. Pressure is a word
that won’t enter his vocabulary
this week.
“You just want to go out and
react,” he said.

Colleen Quinn. Nichols has re-
corded 38 saves in her 12 starts
to tally a .57 GAA.
The challenge both teams
will bring to the Jayhawk Soc-
cer Complex tonight and Sun-
day provides the ideal setting for
Kansas’ road to improvement.
“This is a great weekend to turn
things around,” Braman said. She
was the only Jayhawk to score
last weekend against Nebraska
and Iowa State. “Winning results
would obviously be great.”
Kansas leads the overall series
against Oklahoma State 6-2-2.
But this year, the Cowgirls have
knocked in more than double
the number of goals as Kansas.
The Jayhawks have scored 18
times, while allowing opponents
to stay close behind with 16. This
number does not stand up well to
the fact that the Oklahoma tandem
holds the frst and second points
per match spots in the Big 12.
Despite setbacks, such as the
sidelining of junior midfelder
Nicole Cauzillo, the co-captain
has not played since the Pepper-
dine match on Sept. 11. Francis
and his team are convinced they
are moving forward.
“I think the team’s played
well,” Francis said. “We’ve had
injuries that have affected us and
just some bad luck. Right now
we’re third from the bottom of the
conference. Does that mean we’re
not a good team? No it doesn’t.”
Senior forward Caroline Smith
continues to lead the team with
fve goals and three assists for 13
points. One more assist will put
Smith atop the all-time Kansas
assist leader board. Quinn will
likely step in as keeper despite
increasing her GAA to 1.17.
In their favor, the Jayhawks
feel that returning home will be
the best environment for a turn-
ing point in their season.
“Traveling takes its toll,” Bra-
man said. “It’s defnitely an advan-
tage for the home team. With the
home crowd and no strict sched-
ule in between games, this is obvi-
ously the better place to be.”

By Doug Tucker
the associated press
they get back from their bye
week to host Washington on
Oct. 16, the Kansas City Chiefs
won’t be the same team.
They’ll acquire over the break
a great left tackle, an experi-
enced starting cornerback and a
versatile, valuable backup line-
How much difference that
will make remains to be seen.
Perhaps even if they’d had
Willie Roaf, Eric Warfeld and
John Welbourn and been at full
strength, the Chiefs would be
2-2 anyway, victors over two
losing teams and victims of two
contenders. And still in search
of their own true identity.
But getting those three back
on the feld may also turn out
to be a tremendous boost in the
last 12 games of what will prob-
ably be the last team Dick Ver-
meil ever coaches.
“You bet it will be nice to see
those guys,” said wide receiver/
kick returner Dante Hall. “We
can use all the help we can get.”
Welbourn, a former starter
who can play both guard and
tackle, served a four-game sus-
pension for steroids. With inju-
ries cutting down the effective-
ness of the offensive line, his
absence hurt.
Warfeld, the only productive
cornerback Kansas City’s had
for several years, had to sit out
the frst quarter of the season
for violation of the NFL’s drug
abuse policy. With him joining
newcomers Patrick Surtain and
Sammy Knight in the secondary,
maybe Chad Pennington and
Donovan McNabb would not
have torched the Chiefs for a
combined 721 yards passing.
But the biggest plus will be
Roaf. The hulking 10-time Pro
Bowler popped a hamstring
early in the frst half of the frst
game and his absence has had
an amazing trickle-down effect
on the entire offense.
Without Roaf, quarterback
Trent Green’s been fghting to
stay upright. The Denver Bron-
cos knocked him down eight
times during a dominating 30-10
Monday night victory.
Pro Bowl tight end Tony Gon-
zalez, who set an NFL receiving
record for his position last year
with 102 catches, has been al-
most entirely neutralized.
Frequently held in for maxi-
mum pass protection, Gonzalez
hasn’t had a chance to make any
meaningful catches when he
does go downfeld because the
harried Green’s not had time to
wait for him to get there.
Without Roaf, the bread-and-
butter running game that was
so vital to an offense that set an
NFL record with 398 frst downs
last year has been relegated al-
most entirely to wide stuff.
“When the players come back,
we’ll be healthier than we’ve
been at any time this year, in-
cluding training camp,” said
Vermeil. “(Roaf) feels very good
right now. He feels very conf-
dent he can play these 12 games
stronger than he played them last
year because of the rest and how
good he feels right now. We’ll be
deeper in the offensive line with
the return of John Welbourn.”
With Warfeld back, defensive
coordinator Gunther Cunning-
ham may be able to go to more
of the man defense he prefers
instead of the soft zone which
saw the Eagles’ Terrell Owens
get wide open time after time for
171 yards receiving. But Vermeil
insists that Warfeld will not
walk right back into his job.
In fact, veteran Dexter McCle-
on has done better than many
expected flling in for him.

Chiefs to welcome

Smoltz returns to the plate
By Paul NewBerry
the associated press
ATLANTA — The Braves
rocked the Rocket, John Smoltz
picked up where he left off six
years ago, and Atlanta fnds it-
self all even with the Houston
Astros in the NL playoffs.
Rookie Brian McCann hit a
three-run homer in his frst post-
season at-bat, which were all
the runs Smoltz needed to lead
the Braves past Roger Clemens
and the Astros 7-1 on Thursday
night, tying the best-of-fve se-
ries at one game apiece.
Smoltz broke a one-day tie
with Houston’s Andy Pettitte
to reclaim the title of baseball’s
winningest postseason pitcher.
The right-hander improved to
15-4 with seven strong innings
in his frst October start since
the 1999 World Series.
With the NL East champion
Braves having bounced back
from a 10-5 loss in Game 1, the
series shifts to Houston. Twenty-
game winner Roy Oswalt is set
to go against Atlanta’s surprising
13-game winner, Jorge Sosa, on
The Astros hope Oswalt looks
better than Clemens, who led
the majors in ERA (1.87) at age
43 but was bothered late in the
season by a sore hamstring.
McCann sent the Turner
Field crowd into a frenzy when
he connected with two outs and
two on in the second, driving a
fastball into the right-feld seats
to put the Braves up 3-1.
The 21-year-old catcher be-
came the frst player in Braves
history — including Boston and
Milwaukee, too — to homer in
his frst trip to the plate in the
McCann, one of 18 rookies
who played for Atlanta this sea-
son, started the year at Double-A
Mississippi. He was born less than
three months before Clemens
made his major league debut with
the Boston Red Sox in 1984.
The Braves stretched their
lead to 5-1 in the third. Adam
LaRoche hit an opposite-feld
double to bring home two more
The ball slipped under the
glove of diving left felder Or-
lando Palmeiro before rolling all
the way to the wall.
With Smoltz on the mound
— stiff shoulder and all — the
lead was secure. This is what
he yearned for after spending
three-plus seasons as the Braves
closer, a role that left his playoff
fortunes in the hands of others.
Smoltz had to wait an extra
day to make this long-awaited
playoff start, getting bumped
from the expected Game 1 nod
to give his shoulder a little extra
No problem, considering how
long he already had waited.
Back in that ‘99 World Series,

It wasn’t enough to keep New
York from completing the sweep
with a 4-1 victory. And the win-
ning pitcher that day? Clemens,
who was back to face Smoltz,
now 38, in the oldest pitching
matchup in postseason history.
The Braves added two more
runs in the seventh against reliever
Chad Qualls, even with two run-
ners thrown out on the basepaths.
Andruw Jones and Jeff Francoeur
had RBI singles to give the shaky
Braves bullpen a six-run cushion.
Jones, who came into the
playoffs mired in a 6-for-51
slump, followed up a Game 1
homer with three more hits,
scoring each time.
Chris Reitsma, who retired
only one hitter while giving up
four runs in the opener, gave up
a leadoff single in the eighth but
retired the next three hitters.

Greats swing on new course
By Doug Fergueson
the associated press
ing off his frst victory in 19
months, Colin Montgomerie ap-
pears hungry for more.
Montgomerie showed no
effects from an emotional vic-
tory four days ago in Scotland,
matching his career-low score in
the United States with a 6-under
64 that gave him a three-shot
lead Thursday in the American
Express Championship.
Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh and
nine others were at 67 on a spec-
tacular day at Harding Park, the
municipal course along Lake
Merced that got a $16 million
makeover and held its own
against the world’s best players.
It was right up Montgomerie’s
He looked like the Monty
of old with tee shots that split
the tree-lined fairways, mak-
ing the game look simple. The
42-year-old Scot ran off three
straight birdies to close out the
back nine, then added his lone
birdie on the front with a wedge
into 18 inches. What mattered
more to him was no bogeys on
his card.
“If I can hit fairways, I can
hit greens,” he said. “And then
I can score.”
Woods, who played Harding
Park in junior high school when
it was covered with weeds,
stayed close until he stopped
giving himself good chances,
dropping a shot on the par-3
eighth and having to scramble
for par at the end.
“If I shot something between
2- and 4-under par, I thought it
would be pretty good,” Woods
said. “They’ve done a wonder-
ful job tucking the pins. The
greens are frm, so you’ve got to
be careful.”
It was the frst test at Hard-
ing Park, which had not hosted
golf’s best players since the late
1960s. The course is considered
relatively short at 7,086 yards,
although the frm greens with
subtle contours kept anyone
from going outrageously low.
“A muni just means it’s
owned by the city,” Phil Mickel-
son said after stumbling to a 71.
“It doesn’t mean it’s an easy or
hard course.”
It was plenty easy for Mont-
He missed only two greens, and
saved par both times with 10-foot
putts that kept his momentum
going — not only in the opening
round, but in a summer that has
turned his fortunes around more
than he could have imagined.
Montgomerie fell as low as
No. 83 in the world ranking and
failed to qualify for The Players
Championship and the Masters
in the spring. But as he coped
with a controversy over an ap-
parent rules breach in March at
the Indonesian Open, he fnds
himself headed toward the top.
Tiger Woods hits a shot in the 8th hole during the frst round of the American Express World Golf Championships at Harding Park in

to lead the Detroit Red Wings
to a season-opening home-and-

Although Bill Snyder was named NCAA Coach of the Year
three times in the 1990s, he has struggled throughout the past
year when Kansas State stumbled to a 4-7 fnish. Snyder has to
prove that he can still recruit in the state of Kansas, despite los-
ing to the Jayhawks last season. The Wildcats are 88-31 in their
past 10 seasons, which ranks ffth in Division 1-A. Snyder is the
reason Mangino coaches Kansas; Snyder served as mentor to
Mangino for seven years while Mangino served as an assistant
at Kansas State. Mangino will look to defeat his mentor for the
second straight year.

The Kansas offense struggled against Texas
Tech last week, mainly through the play of
its quarterbacks. Kansas football coach Mark
Mangino used three quarterbacks, but none of
them moved the offense down the feld. The
offense received good feld position from the Kansas defense,
but the quarterbacks were unable to capitalize on it. Mangino
has yet to name a starter for Saturday’s game. The selected
Kansas quarterback will have to perform better than last week
if the Jayhawks want to win their second consecutive game
against Kansas State. Junior quarterback Adam Barmann is the
projected choice to start against the Wildcats. Junior running
back Jon Cornish will also be a huge factor in the offense.
Cornish, the team’s leading rusher, will split time with senior
running back Clark Green.

Sunfower Showdown hits Manhattan
Kansas vs. Kansas State
11 a.m., Saturday, Manhattan, KSU Stadium
The Kansas defense is coming off its best performance of
the year after holding Texas Tech’s high-powered offense to 23
points. The defense has been spectacular against the run this
season, ranking second in the Big 12 Conference and ffth na-
tionally. The Jayhawks have given up only 72 yards per game
on the ground. Expect the Kansas defense to be more con-
cerned with the run this week. Kansas’ solid linebackers will be
put to the test to stop the Kansas State rushing attack.
The Kansas special teams unit continues to be a vital part of
the team’s success. The punt and kickoff coverage has consis-
tently set up the opponent with poor feld position. Sophomore
kicker Scott Webb has yet to miss a feld goal this season, and
sophomore punter Kyle Tucker is coming off his best game of
the season and is averaging 43 yards per punt. Junior corner-
back Charles Gordon is always a threat to take a punt return to
the end zone.
Mangino coached with Snyder for eight seasons at Kansas
State. Mangino ended the streak of 11 consecutive Kansas
State victories last year and will look to get a rare road victory
tomorrow. In order for Mangino to do that, he will look for
solid play from his quarterbacks. Mangino had a quick leash
last week, using three quarterbacks. Mangino has not found a
consistent quarterback to stick with this season. Fans will see if
he fnds that consistency this week.

The Kansas State
offense will go as far
as running backs ju-
nior Thomas Clayton
and freshman Par-
rish Fisher go. Clayton has rushed for more than 300 yards in
three games and is one of the best running backs in the con-
ference. Junior quarterback Allen Webb will lead the passing
attack for Kansas State. Webb’s statistics have improved from
last season, but don’t be surprised if freshman quarterback Al-
lan Evridge comes on to spell Webb at some point during the
game. Evridge has played in the past two games, and he went
3-6 for 49 yards against Oklahoma. Coach Bill Snyder said he
has been happy with Evridge’s performance in practice.
The defense has struggled to contain opposing offenses. In its
frst conference game, Kansas State faced a struggling offense and
still could not contain it. Last weekend, Oklahoma star running back
Adrian Peterson left in the frst half, but the Wildcats still struggled
to stop the Sooners. Junior linebacker Brandon Archer anchors the
defense and has had 25 total tackles in the team’s frst four games.
Archer is a mainstay on the Wildcats defense; he has 115 tackles in
his career. Sophomore defensive back Marcus Watts had a solid
game last weekend against Oklahoma, compiling nine tackles and
breaking up one pass. The defense is ranked 39th in the NCAA in
total defense.
Junior place kicker Jeff
Snodgrass anchors Kansas
State’s special teams. He had a
57-yard feld goal against North
Texas, which tied for the fourth-
longest in school history. He is 4-6 on the season and has hit all three
feld goals from 30 to 39 yards. Sophomore punter Tim Reyer had a
tough week last week, as he failed to get on the feld before a Kansas
State punt. The ball was snapped, and it went out the back of the
end zone. Reyer had been solid before that, averaging 40 yards per
punt. Junior wide receiver Jermaine Moreira handles the punt return
duties for Kansas State. He averages more than 12 yards per return
and has one touchdown that came on a 67-yard return. Moreira also
handles the kick return duties, averaging 28 yards per return.
F Kansas ended an 11-game
losing streak to Kansas
State last season and will
look to make it two straight
victories tomorrow. The Jay-
hawks will look to continue
their strong defensive play
to help their sputtering of-
fense. A victory on the road
would put the Jayhawks
just two victories away from
becoming bowl-eligible.

running back Thomas Clayton to
beat the Jayhawks. The Kansas
defense has been tough against
the run so far this season, but if
Clayton explodes for more than
100 yards, which he is capable
of, Kansas could have a long

Around the Big 12
Oklahoma vs. Texas Texas Tech at Nebraska
Texas A&M at Colorado
Missouri at Oklahoma State
Baylor at Iowa State
When: Saturday, noon
Where: Dallas
Why: Texas is hoping to fnally stop the
Sooners after fve years of defeats. This
appears to be its best shot at winning the
Red-River Shootout. Texas enters the game
4-0, a record that includes an emotional road
victory at Ohio State and a conference-open-
ing win last week at Missouri. Oklahoma is
2-2. Running back Adrian Peterson left the
game with a foot injury last week against
Kansas State. Peterson is expected to be
back, but not at full strength.
When: Saturday, 3 p.m.
Where: Lincoln, Neb.
Why: Nebraska is looking to become the top team it
was a decade ago, when it won the National Champi-
onship in 1994, 1995 and 1997. The Cornhuskers have
started 4-0 and beat nationally-ranked Iowa State at
home last weekend in double overtime. Quarterback Zac
Taylor has thrown for 830 yards and three touchdowns
this season. Texas Tech defeated Kansas at home. Quar-
terback Cody Hodges leads the Tech offense with 1,450
passing yards and 13 touchdowns. Tech is ranked 13th in
the country,. The last time these two played, Texas Tech
came away with a 70-10 victory.
When: Saturday, 6 p.m.
Where: Boulder, Colo.
Why:This game could be Colorado’s best
shot at winning the conference. Colorado
got off to a good start last weekend, beating
Oklahoma State on the road 34-0. Colorado
football coach Gary Barnett seems to have
fnally taken control of his team after a
problematic off-season. The Aggies go to
Colorado after winning a tough home game
last weekend against Baylor. Texas A&M is
paced by its quarterback Reggie McNeal
who has more than 1,000 total yards.
When: Saturday, 1:05 p.m.
Where: Stillwater, Okla.
Why: This could be the ugliest game of the week-
end. Both teams fnd themselves struggling and trying
to fnd their identities. Missouri’s offense has been
solid so far, averaging 43.7 points and 554 yards per
game. But its defense has struggled in the frst four
games, including letting up 51 points last weekend
against Texas. Oklahoma State could be in for a
disappointing season. It dropped its home conference
opener last weekend to Colorado. Freshman Bobby
Reid has taken over at quarterback and has only
thrown one touchdown during the season.
When: Saturday, 1 p.m.
Where: Ames, Iowa
Why: Both teams look to rebound
from tough losses last weekend. Baylor
lost to Texas A&M in overtime, and Iowa
State dropped a double overtime thriller at
Nebraska. Last year, Iowa State escaped
with a 26-25 victory at Baylor. That victory
enabled Iowa State to go on to a bowl game.
For Baylor, it was just another moral victory.
Both teams will look to end their “moral-vic-
tory streaks” and tally a real victory.
