With one 13-3 victory, the Kan-
sas Jayhawks may have rediscov-
ered their season and increased
their hope of advancing to the
Kansas’ vic-
tory against
Missouri moved
the Jayhawks to
4-4 on the sea-
son, 1-3 in the
Big 12 Confer-
ence. The team
must win at
least two of its fnal three games to
become bowl eligible.
That likely means home victories
against Nebraska on Saturday and
Iowa State after Thanksgiving. The
Jayhawks also play at No. 2 Texas
on Nov. 12.
Going into Saturday, a bowl
berth seemed unlikely. Kansas had
lost four straight and was getting
little production from its offense,
despite featuring one of the top de-
fenses in the nation.
Even after suffering its worst loss
of the year, 44-13 at Colorado, Kan-
sas was poised all week in practice,
coach Mark Mangino said. “They
talked about winning the game last
Sunday. They were bent on doing
it. They are tired of not winning,”
Mangino said. “They played today

Kansas State University students
waited in line for hours Friday af-
ternoon, not to see a rock star or

Victory against

postseason hope
By Steve lynn

\The goalpost dismemberment that
began on the feld at Memorial Stadium
ended at 13th and Tennessee streets,
where an offcer from the KU Public
Safety Offce pepper-sprayed fve to 10
people, three KU students said.
Brian Bizjack, Tulsa junior, said a
group of people waded into Potter Lake
after Saturday’s football game and re-
moved two of the longest goalposts.
“We were going to Mass. Street,” Bi-
zjack said. “I wanted to throw it in the
Kansas River.”
Bizjack said he and others were car-
rying the post along 13th Street when at
least three police offcers arrived and told
them to drop the post.
One offcer grabbed the front of the
post while another offcer held the back
of it, and the group dropped the post.
Some people who had been carrying
the dropped goal post walked across 13th
Street to aid another group of people
carrying another post, Bizjack said.

Gorbachev says

U.S. Senator Joseph Biden, D-Del., said that
the United States had alienated itself from the
rest of the world, leaving the nation less secure.
“Some of our leaders have forgotten about
the power of our example,” Biden said.
Biden, a possible Democratic candidate for
the 2008 presidential election, proposed his
plans for policy changes to an audience of
about 75 people Friday at the Robert J. Dole
Institute of Politics.
Biden spoke as part of the Dole Institute’s
Contenders Series, which is intended to give
possible candidates for the 2008 presidential
election a forum to discuss issues. The KU
Young Democrats co-sponsored the event.
Biden said there were four main aspects of
the Bush administration’s international policy
that he would like to change. he said he would
rebuild international alliances, implement a
more preventative strategy against possible
threats, reconsider when and if military force
was appropriate, and alter the government’s
nation-building strategy.
Biden said the
United States
must rebuild alli-
ances with other
nations. While
america has a
strong military,
global issues
like rogue states
and infectious
diseases can’t
be addressed by
the military and
need an international approach, Biden said.
“None of these have respect for borders,”
Biden said.
he said inaction and using military force
shouldn’t be america’s only options. Biden
said acting alone and with force left the Unit-
ed States with all the blame in situations such
as the Iraq war.
“When it comes to wars of choice, I think there have
to be cooler heads that say ‘think twice,’” he said.
Biden said international cooperation could
help reduce the need for force.
Examples of preventative strategies would
be finding and destroying weapons of mass de-
struction, surprise on-site inspections and al-
lowing the seizure of suspicious cargo at sea.
Biden said he also wanted to improve
america’s approach to nation-building. The
current administration had been confronted
with two nation-building projects: Iraq and
“We have failed thus far at both,” he said.
Biden has been active in the Senate for 33
years and may seek the 2008 Democratic pres-
idential nomination if he thinks that he can
appeal to a majority of Democrats and raise
enough money to campaign.

The University of Kansas’ National Student Association committee en-
dorsed the position of seven students who met with Chancellor W. Clarke
Wescoe about racism on the part of local landlords. The students wanted
to encourage the University to stop discriminatory housing. The resolu-
tion passed 6-2, and went on to the All Student Council, which was the
equivalent of today’s Student Senate.
Passed in the heat of the civil rights era, it was the goal of the students
to make the University an example of equality by showing that bigotry
would not tolerated when it came to housing. Copies of the resolution,
which eventually passed, were sent to all members of the faculty and to all
campus organizations.
Nov. 1, 1988
Kansas placement directors announced the most in-demand jobs for
the coming decades. The hot-ticket jobs at the time were engineering,
accounting and sales and management. The School of Business and the
University Placement Center noted that a growing economy would pro-
vide plenty of jobs for newly graduated workers. It was also noted that
bilingual students would be in a good position to work internationally.
Companies that recruited on campus at the time were Sears, Roebuck
and Co., Mutual Life Inc. and Deluxe Check Printers Inc. The increase
in elementary and secondary school enrollment also signaled the need
for more teachers. Engineering, especially civil engineering, was a high-
demand career.

After some initial problems
with online enrollment at the Uni-
versity of Kansas, the system is
now running smoothly and makes
enrolling a quicker, more effcient
process for students. Students
using Enroll and Pay often had
to deal with slow Web page load
times when trying to enroll.
The University ran diagnostic
tests on the Enroll and Pay system
last year to determine the causes
of the slowness, said Rich Mor-
rell, associate vice provost. “This
is a dynamic system and it has so
many different parts to it that just
about the time we think we have it
working well something changes,”
Morrell said.
Before 2003, students had to
enroll in person at Strong Hall.
They were given a fve-minute
window of time to enroll at one
of 12 computer stations and often
had to wait in long lines. With the
ability to enroll online, students
are not confned to the hours of
operation at Strong Hall. Now
about 250 students can enroll on-
line simultaneously, Morrell said.
In January 2004, the Enroll and
Pay system sometimes malfunc-
tioned, which is common when
dealing with any complex technol-
ogy, Morrell said. The system was
sometimes down for a few hours at
a time as a result high traffc, Mor-
rell said. It was diffcult to confgure
Enroll and Pay to handle the num-
ber of students accessing it, espe-
cially during the Add/Drop period
when more students have simulta-
neous access, Morrell said. Morrell
said that the University is learning
how to deal with the system and
had solved most of the problems.
He said the main problem was stu-
dents fguring out how to navigate
the online enrollment.
Kim Dickey, Wichita junior,
worked as an orientation adviser
this summer to help enroll incom-
ing freshmen. She said she encoun-
tered problems with computers
crashing and long load times for
pages on the Enroll and Pay Web
site. Morrell said he never received
notice of problems and this semes-
ter there had been no instances of
malfunctions that he was aware of.
“If there were problems they
must have been pretty quickly ad-
dressed,” Morrell said. Hannah
Luetke-Stahlman, Olathe senior,
said she started attending the Uni-
versity before online enrollment
was started and preferred the on-
line enrollment. “Now you can
just get online and do it when
you have time,” Luetke-Stahlman
said. Morrell said online enroll-
ment benefts students who are
more spread out, such as those at
the University of Kansas Medical
Center and the Edwards Campus.

Many departments of the Uni-
versity either have moved online
or are in the process of doing so.
University offcials say the online
programs are quicker and more
effcient and allow students to
access the University’s resources
from anywhere they can reach the
This year, the University
stopped sending out applications
in its viewbook, which is the
packet of information sent to pro-
spective students. Instead students
are asked to visit the University of
Kansas Web site to apply.
Rich Morrell, associate vice
provost, said online applications
speed the application process and
reduce human error.
“They take their time and it’s
more accurate,” Morrell said.
In paper applications, there is
room for error both on the stu-
dent’s part and by the Offce of
Admissions, Morrell said. Hand-
writing on the applications is
sometimes illegible or inaccurate.
Last year 76 percent of appli-
cants to the University applied
online, said Lisa Kress, director of
admissions. Morrell said he want-
ed to raise that number to about
90 percent this year. Applications
have been available online since
Donna Hultine, director of
the Parking Department, said the
department is working with the
Computer Center to enable stu-
dents to purchase permits and pay
tickets online with credit cards.
Currently students can buy per-
mits online but they cannot pay
tickets that way.
Hultine said she hoped to have
ticket payments online by next fall.
“It would be a really nice option,”
Hultine said.
Susan Zvacek, director of in-
structional development and sup-
port, said the Blackboard Learning
System had been another beneft
of computerizing the University.
The University frst offered Black-
board in Fall 2000.

Gay rights, teen abortion, Arnold
Schwarzenegger’s prestige. These and
other volatile topics are adding spice
to off-year elections in three states
where voters will be considering
statewide ballot measures on Nov. 8.
As is often the case, California has
the most intriguing mix of propo-
sitions _ including four backed by
Schwarzenegger, the Republican gov-
ernor, to curb the power of the Dem-
ocratic-controlled Legislature and
the state’s public employee unions.
Another measure, notable in a state
with liberal leanings, would require
parents to be notifed when a minor
seeks an abortion.
Schwarzenegger is backing pro-
posals — all trailing in the polls
— that would cap state spending and
give the governor greater authority
to make budget cuts; make teachers
work fve years instead of two to pass
probation; strip lawmakers of their
power to carry out redistricting, and
require public employee unions to
get members’ permission before dues
could be used for political purposes.
Schwarzenegger also supports
the abortion measure, which would
require doctors to give parents or
guardians written notice 48 hours
before performing an abortion on a
minor. Adults would not have to con-
sent, but sponsors hope the require-
ment would reduce California’s teen
abortion rate — the nation’s fourth-
highest — by involving parents in the
More than 30 states have parental noti-
fcation or consent laws.
Texas voters are expected to ap-
prove a proposed constitutional ban
on same-sex marriages — a step al-
ready taken in 18 other states. In
Maine, a conservative alliance is urg-
ing voters to quash a new law prohib-
iting discrimination based on sexual
In Texas, the proposed gay-mar-
riage ban is the only high-profle
statewide item on the ballot, and
both sides are concerned about pos-
sible low voter turnout.
“We think the vast majority of
people in Texas are with us but that
doesn’t help if they don’t show up,”
said Kelly Shackelford of the Liberty
Legal Institute, which supports the
Gay-rights activists opposing the
ban have produced television ads
featuring direct appeals by same-sex
couples for marriage rights.
“We are not second-class citizens,
and we need the same resources and
rights available to heterosexual cou-
ples to protect our families,” said the
Rev. Carolyn Mobley, an associate
pastor at the Resurrection Metropoli-
tan Community Church, appearing
with her partner in one of the ads.
Massachusetts is the only state al-
lowing such marriages; Vermont and
Connecticut have approved same-sex
civil unions. Texas law already pro-
hibits same-sex marriages, but sup-
porters of the amendment say a con-
stitutional ban would guard that law
from judicial challenges.
The measure dealing with gay rights
in Maine resulted from a petition cam-
paign by conservatives upset that law-
makers expanded the state’s human
rights act to address anti-gay bias.
The act already prohibited
discrimination based on race,
gender and other factors; it was
broadened this year to outlaw dis-
crimination based on sexual ori-
entation in employment, housing,
credit, public accommodations
and education.

Trouble on the rise
The Board of Trustees of the Kansas University
Endowment Association elected fve new members
Friday, including a new secretary of the board.
The board includes up to 75 members who
set policy and advise the endowment associa-
tion. The new trustees are:
— Gale Sayers, an NFL Hall of Famer who
played running back on the KU football team
from 1962 to 1964. Sayers earned a bachelor’s
degree in education and a master’s degree in
educational administration from the University.
— Dolph Simons III, president of the Law-
rence Journal-World. Simons is a member of
the KU Alumni Association and the Chancel-
lor’s Club.
— David Booth, chairman and CEO of Dimen-
sional Fund Advisors in Santa Monica, Calif.
Booth graduated from the University in 1968
with a bachelor’s degree in economics and
earned a master’s degree in business in 1969.
— Jerome Davies, the endowment associa-
tion’s senior vice president for development.
He is a member of the KU Alumni Association
and the Chancellor’s Club. He was elected
secretary of the board.
— Jann Rudkin, a member of the KU Alumni
Association, the Chancellor’s Club and the
Elizabeth M. Watkins Society. She graduated
from the University in 1973 with bachelor’s
degrees in chemistry and anthropology.

Mangino said his team’s atti-
tude was one that would never
be divided. “We have all, play-
ers and coaches, have all in-
vested so much to it,” Mangino
said. “The kids always stick to-
gether. That is something that
has been important. Instead of
fnger pointing, the kids try to
help each other.”
After Kansas’ 19-3 loss to
Oklahoma, however, senior
linebacker Nick Reid said he
felt like getting in a fst fght
with the team’s offense be-
cause of its lack of production.
Mangino said players on both
sides of the ball helped each
other in practice this week.
“We were doing some pass-
rush drills last week and the
defensive lineman were talk-
ing to the offensive lineman,”
Mangino said. “That is what we
are all about. We have a great
deal of pride here at KU.”
The Kansas offensive line
took that advice to heart. The
line opened big holes for the
Kansas running backs and
helped the team accumulate
208 yards on the ground.
Senior quarterback Jason
Swanson was in high spirits af-
ter knocking off Missouri. “We

Saturday’s victory against
Missouri has given Kansas new
life, and the once seemingly
impossible is again possible.
“We deserved to win today’s
game,” Mangino said. “It will
be a good springboard for us
for the rest of the season.” Kan-
sas will next face a Nebraska
team that lost to Missouri 41-
24, two weeks ago.
“This win gives us momen-
tum,” junior wide receiver
Charles Gordon said. “Missouri
beat Nebraska and we think we
can do the same. It’s huge.”

Pepper spray

Those carrying the post con-

them that he would spray them
with pepper spray if they failed
to drop the post, Bizjack, Chris
Kavanaugh, Wichita sopho-

Between 30 seconds and two
minutes later, the offcer sprayed

Ralph Oliver, chief of the KU
Public Safety Offce, said he had
not seen the written report, but
he had been told that a number
of people were carrying a goal
post and an offcer with the KU
Public Safety Offce used pepper
spray, he said.
He was told the offcer felt
like he was being “charged.”
Oliver said he assumed that
meant someone might have
rushed at the offcer.
An investigation will be con-
ducted to determine whether the
offcer properly used the pepper
spray, Oliver said.

WICHITA — A former space
museum president testifed Friday
at his theft trial that student vol-
unteers mistakenly counted his
personal collection of space items
as part of a museum’s inventory.
Max Ary, who co-founded the
Kansas Cosmosphere and Space
Center and led it for more than
26 years, is charged with 19
federal counts, including fraud,
theft and money laundering. He
is accused of stealing and sell-
ing items that belonged to the
Hutchinson space museum.
“At no time while employed
at the Cosmosphere did I ever
intend to cheat or do anything
improper for the Cosmosphere,”
Ary told jurors.
Ary recounted how in the late
1970s, when the Cosmosphere’s
collection was being assembled,
he would often take students
with him to pick up space hard-
ware NASA no longer wanted.
He said the teenage volunteers
also inventoried Ary’s own arti-
facts — items used to start the
museum’s collection.
Under cross examination,
Ary identified many items
prosecutors contend were
stolen as actually being part
of the original collection he
brought to the Hutchinson
museum. He said obtained
his collection entirely through
trade or gifts.
“It is hard to have documen-
tation when you didn’t buy any-
thing,” he said.
Ary also testifed that he often
used some of his own artifacts to
barter for items for the Cosmos-
He cited as an example obtain-
ing 10 Apollo hand controllers, to
use on simulators at the museum’s
space camp, by trading a small
rocket engine that was part of his
Ary testifed that he began
collecting space artifacts while
working at the Noble Planetari-
um in Fort Worth, Texas. Photos
of him using many of those arti-
facts while working there were
introduced into evidence.
When NASA was disband-
ing the Apollo program that
took men to the moon, Ary
said he thought it would be a
once-in-a-lifetime chance for a
museum to obtain a large col-
lection in a short time.
Former Kansas Cosmosphere director Max Ary is seen in this 2002 photo. Ary testifed Friday at his theft trial that he
sometimes traded his own space and astronaut artifacts to obtain items for the museum. Ary also is charged with
fraud and money laundering for allegedly stealing and selling items that belonged to the Kansas Cosmosphere and
Space Center.
Former space director testifes
with fraud,
While Fall Break was just a
refreshing vacation from school
for most you, I left my visit to
Chicago with more questions
than answers.
I had just turned 21 and I
knew it was going to be an un-
forgettable break, but I never
expected to end up outside of
a bar at 4 a.m., crying with my
best friend, wondering if life
had passed me by.
My friends from back home
and I had not seen each other
in a while, because we were all
in different places, doing our
own things, but it was good to
see them all there that night.
We had about 40 to 50 people
in our group.
I was one of the few single
guys there. So, looking around,
seeing all my friends with their
girlfriends, some even with kids
now, I got to thinking.
I have gone to four weddings
this year and I’m already going
to a couple next summer.
This might be the last time
my friends and I get to do this
together. These thoughts ran
through my head all night.
I couldn’t shake them. May-
be it was time for me to start
dating seriously.
It seems like every relation-
ship I have been in, the girl has
had higher expectations than I
did, and all I ended up doing
was disappointing her. Every
girl, since she was little, has
had that classic Romeo and Ju-
liet-type fantasy.
This can be blamed on Hol-
lywood and its unrealistic ap-
proach to romance. All I have
ever dreamed about in a rela-
tionship can be summed up in
the lyrics of “Wonderful To-
night” by Eric Clapton.
Nothing over-the-top or ex-
travagant, just something re-
laxed with a person who makes
you smile.
Relationships seem to move
faster through your college
years than any other time in
your life.
One day, you are all about
each other, and then next, you
cannot stand to walk on the
same side of the street as the
I think that most people are
not ready for a relationship
when they begin them and that
is why break-ups have become
so common.
There are certain things that
guys in relationships do that I
have refused to do, and that is
why I am on the outside look-
ing in.
I do not do that daily call,
“just to say hello.” I cannot
have a phone conversation for
more than 10 minutes.
Also, I refuse going shopping
with girls, because they make
it an all day adventure out of
what should be a 20-minute er-
rand. These are just some little
things, but trust me, they add
But sometimes I can’t help
wonder if doing all those little
annoying things might pay off
in the end.
It’s tough to look at all your
friends with girlfriends, and not
feel a little left out.
A lot of people associate hav-
ing a serious relationship with
growing up, but I don’t fully
buy into that yet.
I feel more like trial-and-er-
ror, and the valuable experienc-
es you get from them are more
important than just the success
of finding yourself in a relation-
We’re still in college, and
though a lot of you are about to
graduate, don’t go rushing and
doing something that you are
not ready for.
Don’t take the track star ap-
proach in relationships, jump-
ing from one to the next with-
out being able to enjoy being
single. It’s nice to go out and
know you have no strings at-
tached to you.
But for the small percentage
of you who have actually found
someone special, all I can say
is, it must be nice. I hope they
are worth it.
From someone who has let
every good girl in his life slip
away, let me tell you this: You’ll
never miss that special some-
one until they’re gone, and that
is reality.

Maybelline mascara prom-

Victoria’s Secret promises
“fuller, perkier breasts.” Neu-
trogena promises “natural

The goal of longer, fuller,
perkier and better is a nice
way of saying “you aren’t
good enough the way you
are.” Your lashes aren’t long
or full enough, your breasts
could use a little oomph and
since when did makeup look

blotchy, pimply and has a ten-

I own the aforementioned
products because I want to
put my best face forward and

when I see a perfectly air-

This feeling is the realiza-
tion that I will never acquire
impossible perfection com-
bined with the fear that I will
be compared subconsciously
or consciously to the model
with cleavage spilling out on
the cover of Cosmopolitan.

They may simply seem like
great catch phrases, but the
repetitive nature of advertise-

Advertisements are a great
way to sell a product, but
they also serve as a means to
implant an impractical ideal
into a nation’s psyche.
The American Psychologi-
cal Association conducted a
study in 2000 on the effects of
advertising on children.
“Children under the age of
eight are unable to critically
comprehend televised adver-
tising messages and are prone
to accept advertiser messages
as truthful, accurate and un-
biased,” according to the re-
search. This same source stat-
ed that advertisers spent more
than $12 million in campaigns
targeted toward the youth.
This is abuse of developing
young minds and is detrimen-
tal to society’s perception of
human worth.
There is nothing wrong
with expressing yourself with
makeup and using beauty
products but know that a
makeup free face has its ap-
peal and that no push-up bra
can continually perk up your
self-esteem. You are the same
great person in sweats as you
are in your Sunday best.

Haunted house mischaracterized
Mr. Garcia, my name is Troy
Covey, the senior pastor of
Solomon’s Porch Church. I am
the “jerk” director you men-
tioned in your colorful letter to
the editor about our haunted
house. I haven’t had much time
to respond because of the over-
whelming success of Nightmare
so I’ll be brief.
Did you really think you could
get away with making false state-
ments and accusations on a fair,
balanced and truth-seeking me-
dia source? I will clarify and set
the record straight on just a few
of the many maligned statements
you have made.
1. We except credit cards,
checks and cash.
2. There is a cast of more than
150 actors and technicians each
night, and there was more face
paint and things flying at you in
the dark than any other haunted
house in town.
3. No one “forced” you to do
anything, Mr. Garcia. We could
never get away with that.
4. The entire cast, crew and
survey team (more than 250
each night) volunteers to work;
virtually no one is paid! They are
all working to build our deeply
needed youth center here in mid-
town where there are few options
for the youth.
5. Over-zealous religious peo-
ple? Are you aware that there are
people on the cast and crew who
do not have Christian beliefs? In
fact, one man would defend his
agnosticism aggressively. Though
this is the case, we all work in
harmony fighting for a cause:
awareness. A number of our cast
and crew would have real prob-
lems with you assertions.
6. The money you paid was a
donation. Read the ticket.
7. Less than 2 percent of peo-
ple who have experienced the
Nightmare thought that it was a
bad idea, so I guess you are re-
ally the minority here, Mr. Gar-
cia. But this is America and the
minority should have a voice.
Lastly, Mr. Garcia, you seemed
to be an intelligent man after
speaking to you on the phone
the other day, however, I still
cannot fathom after three at-
tempts on our part to prepare
you for what you were about to
see (ticket desk, waiver, video)
how you missed it.
In front of me (while writing
this letter) I’m viewing a release
form with your signature. The
first sentence on this form says
“Warning! Graphic depiction
of real life trauma and violence!”
How did you miss that?
One more thing Mr. Garcia,
the entire show is approximately
25 minutes long. Why did it take
you 25 minutes to decide you
wanted your money back after
stating you were offended by one
of the first rooms?
Your actions could be likened
to going to a restaurant and or-
dering a sandwich. You took a
bite and said “I don’t think I like
this,” another bite and said, “I re-
ally don’t like this and I shouldn’t
have to pay for it!”
Then, while finishing the sand-
wich and licking your fingers
you said “I really didn’t like the
sandwich and I want my money
I’m truly saddened your ex-
perience was not a desirable
one. Thousands did enjoy it
immensely and more than 250
people have received help from
our counselors. The Nightmare
is half the price, and twice the
show in town. Come and experi-
ence it with us!
Just a quick thanks as well,
Mr. Garcia, for calling every
news outlet in the community. I
have taken calls all day, and any
press is good press!

Memorial revisits Parks’ legacy
By Samira Jafari
The AssociATed Press
MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Rosa Parks was remem-
bered Sunday by hundreds of mourners for her defant
act on a city bus that inspired the civil rights movement
and helped pave the way for other blacks, including
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Cascades of roses surrounded Parks’ casket in a
chapel bearing her name at St. Paul A.M.E. Church,
where she was once a member. A separate wing was
opened for the overfow crowd and hundreds more
stood outside.
“I was here when Rosa Parks started and I just
wanted to be here when she departed,” said the Rev.
Joseph Lowery, who co-founded the Southern Chris-
tian Leadership Conference with the Rev. Martin Lu-
ther King Jr.
The body of the 92-year-old Parks, who died Mon-
day at her home in Detroit, was to later lie in honor
in the Capitol Rotunda in Washington, D.C. No other
woman has been granted that honor.
Rice said she and others who grew up in Alabama
during the height of Parks’ activism might not have
realized her impact on their lives then, “but I can hon-
estly say that without Mrs. Parks, I probably would not
be standing here today as secretary of state.”
Alabama Gov. Bob Riley credited Parks with inspir-
ing protests against social injustice around the world.
“I frmly believe God puts different people in differ-
ent parts of history so great things can happen,” Riley
said. “I think Rosa Parks is one of those people.”
Parks was arrested in 1955 for refusing to give up
her bus seat to a white man. Among those who sup-
ported her was King, who led the boycott of the city’s
bus system that helped initiate the modern civil rights
“She was a gentle giant,” his son, Martin Luther
King III, said at the memorial.
“I think she had a defning stand in the civil rights
movement,” said Estella Jernigan, 20, a student at Troy
University, before the service started.
Lowery and the Rev. Jesse Jackson said the best way
for blacks to carry on Parks’ legacy would be to push
Congress to renew the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which
they said would be in jeopardy when it comes up for
review in 2007.
The Rev. Al Sharpton said when he arrived in
Montgomery that he thought about “how if she had
just moved her seat, how history might of changed.”
An honor guard from the Maryland Transportation Authority Police carries the coffn of Rosa Parks away from the
airplane and to a hearse at the Baltimore Washington International Airport in Linthicum, Md., on Sunday. Parks will
lie in honor at the U.S. Capitol Rotunda in Washington, D.C.
t hurricane wilma
FEMA helps
hospital relief
By meliSSa TruJillo
The AssociATed Press
PLANTATION, Fla. — A week after Hurricane
Wilma, more than 1 million Florida homes are still
without power and many doctors’ offces remain
closed, leaving hospitals swamped as the only
source of medical care in some communities.
“You can’t get any regular doctors on the phone.
You can’t get anything flled,” said Tim Swett, 41.
He waited fve hours at one emergency room and
fnally left without help for a back problem he had
aggravated while cleaning up his mother’s yard.
It wasn’t until he tried another hospital, where
disaster teams were set up in tents to handle mi-
nor injuries, that he saw a doctor.
To help ease the medical crunch, the Federal
Emergency Management Agency set up disaster
medical assistance teams at four hospitals to help
people with minor injuries, prescription medicine or
those trying to follow up on routine medical care.
At Westside Regional Medical Center in Planta-
tion, a team had seen 190 patients — including Swett
— by Sunday morning after opening Thursday. The
hospital had twice its normal traffc in the days after
Wilma hit, said Chief Executive Earl H. Denning.
“They were being overrun,” said Bill Wallace,
who is commanding a team of 35 doctors, nurses
and others working out of four tents set up in the
hospital’s parking lot.
Wilma was the eighth hurricane to strike or swipe
Florida in 15 months. The storm killed 21 people in
the state after battering Jamaica, Haiti and Mexico
with strong wind and rain, and then tearing across
the Gulf and Florida’s southern peninsula. In all,
38 deaths were blamed on the hurricane.
We saw who the true Kansas
fans were on Saturday.
Those were the ones who sang
the “Rock Chalk Chant” from
their seats and left Memorial
Stadium high-fving one another
showing dignity and class.
The thousand or so who ran
on to the feld to celebrate the
13-3 Kansas victory, however,
dishonored themselves and the
Jayhawks’ accomplishment.
This wasn’t a monumental vic-
tory that deserved to bring the
goalposts down, as we’ve seen
the past two years. When the
Jayhawks crushed a ranked Tiger
team 35-14 two years ago, rushing
the feld was appropriate. It was
the frst Kansas victory against a
ranked team in fve years, and it
all but assured the Jayhawks a trip
to a bowl game.
Last year, a wild celebration was
justifed after Kansas defeated Kan-
sas State, because it ended an 11-
year losing streak to the Wildcats.
In those situations, Kansas
did something it wasn’t expected
to do.
But there was nothing special
about Saturday’s game. Missouri
wasn’t ranked. The Jayhawks have
defeated the Tigers handily the past
two years, and there was no dra-
matic fnish.
It might have been different if
Kansas won the game on a last-sec-
ond hail mary, but everyone knew
Kansas was going to win with fve
minutes remaining in the game.
Athletics Department offcials
said the celebration was a poor
“We need to stop rushing
the feld when we’ve beaten a
team three times in a row,” As-
sociate Athletics Director Jim
Marchiony said. “We need to
act like we’ve been there before,
because we have.”
Kansas football coach Mark
Mangino agreed.
“That is dangerous. We don’t
need to do that,” he said. “I just
don’t like it anywhere, whether
it is on our feld or on a feld
somewhere else.”
Beyond being dangerous —
Marchiony said he saw one man
come inches from death, nar-
rowly avoiding a goalpost land-
ing on his head — the celebra-
tion sent the wrong message to
the Kansas football team.
The fans who chose to run on
to the feld Saturday, told the Kan-
sas football team, loud and clear,
that they expected little out of it.

Kansan staff writer
Going into Saturday’s game,
pundits expected the Missouri
rushing attack to be the most
important unit on the feld.
Instead, it was the Kansas
rushing attack that decided the
game’s outcome.
The Jayhawks carried the ball
49 times for 208 yards, with se-
nior running back Clark Green’s
125 yards leading the way.
Kansas defeated its Border
Showdown rival 13-3.
Green seems to have a knack
for breaking out against Missouri.
Last season, Green rushed for
118 yards, which helped Kansas
win 31-14 in Columbia, Mo.
Green said he’s motivated by
the history of the rivalry.
Each year, before Kansas plays
Missouri, former coach Don
Fambrough speaks to the play-
ers. He relays the history of the
long-running feud between the
state of Kansas and the state of
Missouri, dating all the way back
to Quantrill’s raid in Lawrence.
Fambrough was KU football
coach for eight seasons between
1971 and 1982, including a hia-
tus in the late 1970s.
“I am here listening to the sto-
ries and all and you don’t want
Missouri to beat you,” Green
said. “We just go out and play
our heart out every game, but
especially against Missouri.”
Kansas football coach Mark
Mangino was not sure why
Green has been so consistently
successful against Missouri.
“I think maybe after being here
for a couple years as a young play-
er, he caught on to the intensity of
this rivalry and what it means to the
University of Kansas, to the people
of Lawrence to the people in the
state of Kansas,” Mangino said.
Green, helped by the offensive
line’s strong showing, helped the
Jayhawks have a successful game
“Clark is our workhorse,” soph-
omore offensive lineman Cesar
Rodriguez said. “He works hard
everyday. He gets blocks, he gets
hurt, he pass blocks, he does every-
thing that a running back should.”

The KU grounds crew at Me-
morial Stadium can take down
the goalposts in about 22 sec-
onds. For the workers under-
neath the posts Saturday, there
was an extra incentive to move
After defeating Missouri for
the third consecutive year, fans
stormed the feld, tore down the
goalpost in the north endzone,
and carried it, along with the al-
ready-deconstructed post from
the south endzone, off the feld.
The north endzone post, still
intact, was dumped into Potter
Lake near Memorial Stadium.
Pieces from the south en-
dzone post made their way
down Jayhawk Boulevard and
into the Chi Omega Fountain,
where three police offcers kept
watch over the pieces. Stadium
offcials took away the pieces
that remained in the stadium
after the crowd had cleared, KU
workers said.
Fans ignored a taped pregame
message from Kansas football
coach Mark Mangino, urging
them to stay off the feld. They
also ignored repeated pleas from
the public address announcer to
“celebrate safely.”
Fans did not swarm around
the feld before the game fnal
minutes, which limited the num-
ber of people who got onto the
feld for the celebration unlike
the previous two years when
fans stormed the feld after vic-
tories against Missouri and Kan-
sas State.
A crowd-control team pa-
trolled the student section, but
was told not to fght the oncom-
ing rush, rather to unbolt the
posts and walk away, Kansas
event staff said.
The goalposts must be re-
placed because they cannot be
reconstructed. The company
that manufactures the goalposts
was notifed of the potential
need for replacements before
the game, so the new posts will
be ready for next Saturday’s
game against Nebraska.

Gault’s golden goal
defeats Tigers
By alissa BaueR
Kansan sPOrtswriter
The Kansas 3-2 victory against
Missouri on Friday ended Senior
Day in dramatic fashion. Junior
defender Holly Gault sprinted
out of nowhere and received a
textbook pass from senior for-
ward Caroline Smith. It was a
golden goal in double overtime.
“I love to attack and there was
no one in front of me,” Gault said.
“I was yelling as loud as I could to
Caroline to pass me the ball.”
The victory earned the Jay-
hawks a four-way tie for sec-
ond place and the No. 5 seed
in the Big 12 Tournament on
Wednesday in San Antonio.

Another day, another loss.
Kansas fell to No. 14 Texas 3-
0 at the Horejsi Center Saturday
night, its seventh straight loss in
a season that has spiraled down-
ward and appears destined for a
disappointing end.
The Jayhawks are now 12-
10 overall and 4-9 in Big 12
The Longhorns improved to
16-3 overall and 11-2 in confer-
ence play.
Texas made several long
runs early in the match to gain
momentum toward an easy vic-
tory. In the frst game, Kansas
held an 8-5 lead before an 8-
0 Texas run silenced the home
crowd and gave the Longhorns
control. That streak proved to
be the difference as they won
the opener 30-22.
Kansas volleyball coach Ray
Bechard said his team’s inability
to thwart Texas’ rallies was the
difference in the match.
“You can’t survive more than
a couple of those a game,” he
said. “It seemed like they had
three or four.”
The Longhorns did, indeed,
have many short runs that add-
ed up to lopsided fnal scores. In
game two, however, it was the
Jayhawks’ lack of scoring that
led to a 30-20 loss.
Kansas scored four straight
points to pull within one at 12-
11, but that was the last time
during the game that it scored
off of the serve.
The Jayhawks had three ser-
vice errors and no aces in the
The Longhorns were off
and running again in the fi-
nal game. A 6-0 stretch gave
them an early 15-11 lead, and
that was soon followed by a
4-0 run that put the Jayhawks
down 23-14.
Another four-point streak
made the score 29-20, and the
match fittingly ended on a KU
serving error.
Texas won the game 30-21.
Bechard gave credit to the
Longhorns’ offensive attack.
Junior opposite hitter Dariam
Acevedo led Texas with 14 kills.
Three Longhorns were close be-
hind with nine kills each.
Texas sophomore libero Aly-
son Jennings led all players with
17 digs.
“They’re really dynamic,”
Bechard said. “You can be in
the right place and have the
block in the right place, and
they’re still tough.”
Kansas was paced offen-
sively by sophomore opposite
hitter Emily Brown, who tal-
lied 10 kills. Senior outside
hitter Paula Caten had eight
blocks and nine digs. Senior
setter Andi Rozum had seven
kills, a team best.
The Longhorns also out-
blocked the Jayhawks 16-8.
The Jayhawks’ seven-game
skid is their longest since
1997 when they had losing
streaks of eight and 10 games.
That was the last season be-
fore Bechard took over the
Brown said the Jayhawks
needed to refocus in order to
turn the season around. With
only seven matches remaining,
Kansas needs to win at least fve
to have a realistic shot at the
NCAA tournament.
That mission starts Wednes-
day against Colorado, a team
that Kansas beat earlier this sea-
son in Boulder, Colo.
“It’s nothing that huge,
nothing we can’t do,” Brown
said. “But we’ve got to go
Rozum said the team needed
to be on the same page in order
to start winning again.

eryone believing that we can do

Texas adds to Kansas’ losing streak
t volleyball
By antonio Mendoza
Kansas didn’t win the men’s or
women’s Big 12 cross country title over
the weekend, but it was a big stepping
stone for the program. Both teams im-
proved from last year’s standings.
Junior Benson Chesang was the
Big 12 singles champion for the sec-
ond year in a row. The only other
runner to accomplish this for Kansas
was Al Frame in 1954 and ’55. Che-
sang fnished with a time of 23:45.
Texas’ Joe Thorne fnished second
with a time of 23:48.
“It feels great to repeat,” Chesang
said. “I’m really impressed with my
team right now. I didn’t win this
thing by myself. I had all my guys
behind me and we just kept sup-
porting each other.”
The 13th-ranked men’s cross coun-
try team fnished third overall, behind
seven-time repeating champions Colo-
rado and second-place fnisher Texas.
Kansas fnished with an overall
score of 68. Colorado had a score of
55 and Texas had 52.
The third-place fnish for Kansas
was the best fnish for the team in the
10 years that the Big 12 Conference
has had a cross country program.
“I was very excited with both
teams’ performance,” coach Stanley
Redwine said. “Benson repeating as
individual champion was very thrill-
ing. Coach Doug Clark has done an
awesome job with the team.”
The women fnished eighth, two
places better than their 10th-place
fnish a year ago.
Colorado also placed frst on the
women’s side, sweeping the confer-
ence race. Kansas fnished with a total
score of 214, led by sophomore Lisa
Morrisey with a time of 22:43. Mor-
risey fnished 39th overall.
“Both teams had a total team ef-
fort,” Redwine said. “If you look at
both teams’ performance from the one
through fve runners, we were exactly
where we thought we would be.”
The Jayhawks will be off from run-
ning this week, but will race in the
NCAA Midwest Nationals in Iowa
City, Iowa, on Nov. 12.

Freshman breaks record
By Kelly Reynolds
kansan sportswriter
The Missouri swimming and
diving team came ot Lawrence
this weekend and like its foot-
ball and soccer counterparts, it
left a loser.
The Kansas swimming and
diving team defeated No. 20
Missouri 175-125 on Friday
night in Robinson Natatorium.
Kansas last defeated Mis-
souri six years ago.
The victory moved the team
to 2-1 in dual meet competi-
tion and 1-0 in the Big 12
The early conference vic-
tory is an indication of the
progress the team has made
since the 2004-2005 season.
Last year, the Jayhawks went
1-5 in the conference.
The only conference victory
was at the end of the season,
against Iowa State.
“We take the rivalry just as
serious as every other team,”
Kansas swimming coach Clark
Campbell said. “The past few
years, we haven’t held our
end of the deal.”
Defeating a ranked team al-
lowed the Jayhawks to see how
good they really were, senior co-
captain Gina Gnatzig said.
Although Friday’s victory
boosted team morale, Gnatzig
remained humble on her out-
look for the rest of the sea-
“Since we beat Missouri,
people will now come after
us,” Gnatzig said. “Yes, it was
a win, but it’s not going to be
Gnatzig said having a quick-
er start to the season would give
the team ample time to make
“Last year, we started doing re-
ally well halfway through the sea-
son at the North Carolina Invite,”
Gnatzig said.
“It was just so exciting to beat
them. We haven’t beaten them
since I’ve been here, and to do
it in my fnal year is great,” she
said of Missouri.
Fast times highlighted the
Jayhawks’ victory.
Freshman Ashley Leidigh
shattered the Robinson pool re-
cord by a half of a second in the
100-yard butterfy fnishing with
a time of 55.00 seconds. The old
record was 55.52 seconds. Lei-
digh had one of the top times in
the nation in the butterfy event,
Gnatzig said.
In addition to breaking the
pool record in the 100-yard
butterfly, Leidigh captured
first place in the 200-yard
butterfly and the 100-yard
freestyle. She was also a mem-
ber of the first place 400-yard
freestyle relay team alongside
Gnatzig, sophomore Terri
Schramka and freshman Mol-
ly Brammer.
“Ashley really broke
through to a whole new per-
formance level,” Campbell
said. “You have things that are
momentum changers, and her
butterfly race that took place
in the first third of the meet
really electrified the team and
Shanna Bradbury and
Danielle Hermann also rep-
resented the freshman class.
They swam in the 200-yard
individual medley and both
breaststroke events. Brad-
bury placed first in the IM.
Hermann captured first in the
100-yard breaststroke and the
200-yard breaststroke. Sch-
ramka picked up a victory in
the 200-yard backstroke.
Other standout swims includ-
ed victories by Gnatzig in the 200-
yard freestyle and Jenny Short in
the 100-yard backstroke.
The Jayhawks will meet Iowa
and Missouri State in a double-
dual meet on Nov. 4 at 4 p.m. in
the Robinson Natatorium.
“We need to swim with the
same enthusiasm and energy as
we did with Missouri,” Camp-
bell said. “If we can beat Iowa,
there’s a good chance we will
be a top 25 team.”

For Kansas rower Jelayna
Da Silva, getting an extra
hour of sleep because of day-
light-saving time on Sunday
morning didn’t matter.
She was awake at 4 a.m.,
ready to row at the Head of
the Iowa regatta.
The Kansas varsity women’s
four boat, which has four wom-
en in a boat, fnished second
in the regatta from Iowa City,
“We had really good team-
work in this race,” Da Silva
said. “We’ve been working a
lot on our technique and ft-
ness, and it all came together
in this race.”
Rowers Jennifer Ebel and Kris
Lazar competed in the women’s
four boat with Da Silva.
“I think we’re in good shape
this year and that makes a dif-
ference,” Lazar said. “It’s en-
couraging to see for the spring
season. We’re looking very
But top-ranked teams such
as Minnesota, Wisconsin and
Iowa were more of an issue
in the women’s varsity eight.
Minnesota took frst place,
Wisconsin, which entered two
boats, took second and third
and Iowa took fourth place.
Kansas fnished ffth, but
only half-second behind Iowa.
All three teams were ranked in
the top 20 last year.
Other results for Kansas in-
cluded fourth, ffth and sixth
places in the women’s open,
with sophomore Tiffany Jeffers
taking third.
Kansas rowing coach Rob
Catloth said he was pleased
with the rowers’ performances.
“They’re rowing three two-
and-a-half mile races in a day
and performing very well.”
Kansas will travel to Chat-
tanooga, Tenn., next weekend
to compete in the Head of the
Hooch regatta.
“The varsity eight is typi-
cally our main focus, so we’ll
be working on that this week,”
Da Silva said. “And almost ev-
eryone on varsity will be row-
ing in a single so we’ll be look-
ing at that as well. But we’re
always looking to come away
with a win.”
Improving their technique
and ftness is always something
the women work on in practice
and in competition.
“It’s the little things we do
to improve that make a big
difference out on the water,”
Ebel said. “We just always go
out to row the race the best
we can.”
The Head of the Hooch will
have several teams Kansas typi-
cally does not see, such as Ten-
nessee, so it will be a good op-
portunity to see how it measures
up against the competition.
“We have to keep improv-
ing and improving,” Lazar said.
“There’s no doubt our team likes
racing, so it’ll be good to get out
there and see how we compare
to our competition.”

State already knew its Big 12
North title hopes were be-
tween slim and none.
Now, as the old one-liner
goes, slim has left town.
Saturday’s 23-20 loss to
Colorado, which lifted the
Buffaloes to a No. 25 ranking
and gave them sole posses-
sion of the division lead, also
eliminated Kansas State from
contention. But the Wildcats
can still salvage a bowl bid
with two wins in their last
three games, and they insist
they can do it.
“It’s tough. The locker room
is down, but we know we’ve
still got a chance to make it to
a bowl game,” safety Marcus
Watts said after Saturday’s 23-
20 loss to Colorado eliminated
the Wildcats from North conten-
tion. “We only need two wins in
our next three games, so we’ll
come back. We’ll come back
ready to practice on Monday.”
It won’t be easy, though.
Kansas State (4-4, 1-4), which
has lost three straight, sits in
ffth place in the six-team divi-
sion, ahead of only Kansas.
The Wildcats have already
played the Jayhawks, mean-
ing their last three games will
come against teams ahead of
them in the standings — and
gunning for bowl berths of
their own.
Kansas State plays this
weekend at Iowa State, which
is coming off a 42-14 rout of
Texas A&M. The Wildcats go
to Nebraska after that, then
close out the regular season at
home against Missouri.
“The spirit on this team,
the effort, the improvement is
still there,” linebacker Brandon
Archer said. “I believe we can
pull out two wins.”

Smith suffers
3-year slump
t football
Extra Points:
Freshman Anthony Collins made
his first career start, at right tackle,
in place of senior Matt Thompson.
Collins did not play after he com-
mitted a personal foul. Thompson
replaced him.
The 6-3 lead that Kansas had after
running back Clark Green’s touch-
down run was the first time Kansas
had held a lead since it was up 3-0
against Kansas State.
Mark Simmons caught two passes
for 33 yards, which increased his
streak of catching a pass in a game
to 32 consecutive games.
Green’s 125 yards gave him eight
career 100-yard games.
Gordon moved into 10th place on
the all-time Big 12 punt return list
with his 42 return yards. Gordon
has 940 career return yards.
The three points Kansas allowed
were their least against Missouri
since 1999 when the Jayhawks
topped the Tigers 21-0.
Saturday’s attendance of 48,238
was the highest of the season at
Memorial Stadium.
Key Plays:
Green had back-to-back rushes of
nine yards and 16 yards. Those
rushes helped lead the Jayhawks to
their first touchdown of the game,
a 1-yard Green touchdown run.
Junior running back Jon Cornish
had a rush of 12-yards to put
Kansas in a first and goal from the
10-yard line. Cornish ran the ball 10
yards on the next play and picked
up the game’s second touchdown
and a 13-3 lead.
Late in the fourth quarter, with Mis-
souri driving, Smith passed deep
into the endzone. He was picked off
by senior cornerback Theo Baines at
the 1-yard line, virtually sealing the
victory for Kansas.

Swanson was pleased, but not sur-
prised, with Green’s performance.
“Clark was huge. Clark was just be-
ing Clark. He will pound it all day,”
Swanson said. “Fortunately the line did
a great job creasing some lanes for him.
Once he gets an open feld he is really
hard to bring down.”
Green wasn’t the only successful
Kansas running back. Junior Jon Cor-
nish accumulated 54 yards, including
a 10-yard touchdown run in the fourth
Green scored the team’s frst touch-
down of the game in the second quar-
ter, from one yard out.
Green was key on that scoring drive.
He rushed the ball four times for 27
yards and the score.
Rodriguez said Missouri dropped
members of its secondary throughout
the game, afraid Kansas was going to
throw the ball. Rodriguez thought that
approach was due to the fact that Kan-
sas threw the ball 50 times the week
earlier against Colorado.
The Kansas defense certainly was fresh
when it came on the feld. The defense
had another stellar performance, holding
Missouri to just 180 yards of total offense
including 33 rushing yards. The defense
also forced two turnovers — an intercep-
tion and a fumble recovery.
“We made mistakes, and you can’t
make mistakes. Especially against a
good defense,” Missouri coach Gary
Pinkel said. “Give them some cred-
it, they are a good defensive football
Kansas held Missouri’s versatile
quarterback, Brad Smith, to 38 yards
on 20 carries. Smith ran for more
than 200 yards last week against Ne-
“They were able to make adjustments
on the fy as far as responsibilities and
did a good job of game planning and
executing it,” Missouri running back
Tony Temple said.
The Kansas rushing attack actually
helped neutralize its opponent’s rush-
ing game. Because Kansas was able to
run the football effectively and gain frst
downs, the Missouri offense stayed off
the feld. Kansas held the ball for nearly
10 minutes longer than Missouri.
Mangino recognized the discrepancy
in time of possession as one of the keys
in Kansas’ victory.
“Defensive coordinators are always
running to the offensive coordinators
saying can we run the ball, can we
move the chains, can we eat up the
clock. Let’s just try to keep our guys off
the feld so they can be fresh when they
go out,” Mangino said.

For the third consecutive year,
the Kansas defense stopped
Brad Smith enough to secure a
victory over rival Missouri.
A week after being named
national player of the week by
USA Today and Sports Illustrat-
ed, the Missouri senior quarter-
back struggled throughout the
game completing just 14 of 37
passes for 141 yards and gaining
only 38 yards rushing.
Last week, Smith accumulat-
ed nearly 500 yards of total of-
fense against Nebraska, which
entered the game with the No. 1
rush defense in the Big 12 Con-
ference. But this week was a
different story for Smith against
another top defense.
“Losing this rivalry game, it
hurts, it hurts a lot,” Smith said.
“I gave it everything I got, but
there just isn’t anything I can do
about it now.”
The Kansas defense consis-
tently bottled up Smith at the
line of scrimmage and forced
him to move outside the pocket,
rather than have the ability to sit
in the pocket and create plays,
like he did last weekend.
Smith said the Missouri of-
fense was expecting more blitzes
from the Kansas defense like in
years past, but instead it dropped
defenders back into zone cover-
age and made Smith scramble.
Kansas football coach Mark
Mangino said the defense made
adjustments from last year and
gave Smith several different
looks than it had in the past.
“We got to Brad Smith the
last couple of years with intense
pressure and blitzing,” Mangino
said. “There is no doubt that
Missouri was prepared for all
those blitzes. Our defensive line
dropped to zones and squeezed
the pocket in front of him to
force him out of the pocket.”
Mangino also said that he had
never seen a defense execute its
game plan as well as the Kansas
defense did on Saturday.
Smith said the offense was
out of sync all game. Whether it
was penalties, sacks or miscom-
munication, the Kansas defense
had Missouri’s offense off-bal-
anced and frustrated.
Kansas’ 13-3 victory against
Missouri marks the last time Kan-
sas will play against Smith. He
will end his career later this sea-
son at Missouri with nearly every
passing and rushing record in the
books, but will also leave with a
1-3 career record against Kansas.
Smith said Kansas would al-
ways rise to the occasion and
make plays to stop him from
what he wanted to do. Smith has
accounted for 400 yards of total
offense during the past two years
against Kansas, which was 80
fewer yards than he accounted
for last week against Nebraska.
Smith, however, began to
move the ball effectively late in
the fourth quarter. He scram-
bled for a frst down on fourth
and 10 and broke free from a
Nick Reid tackle. After complet-
ing three more passes for three
frst downs and a gain of 33
yards, Kansas cornerback Theo
Baines intercepted Smith’s pass
at the goal line with fewer than
fve minutes in the game. The
interception secured the victory
for Kansas.
Senior Jayhawk defensive end
Charlton Keith, who registered
two sacks of Smith and pres-
sured himall game, said this was
an important game for Kansas’
“We just lined up and played
fundamental football,” Keith
said. “We had 11 guys pursuing
the ball, and that’s pretty im-
pressive. We have a lot of young
guys on the team that are step-
ping up and making plays, and
that’s looking good for the fu-
ture of KU football.”

Cheers to the KU faithful. Fans
helped the Jayhawks through-
out the day, cheering at the right
times in the game. The loud fans
contributed to the snap that
sailed over Brad Smith’s head,
and the defense fed off the fan’s
Jeers to the geniuses who rushed the
feld. When Kansas defeats a team
three years in a row, the goalposts
should stay on the feld and out of
Potter Lake.
Cheers to the older twirlers during
the halftime show. The crazy twirling
lady with the wild hair is always a
fan favorite at homecoming. The
little old man was a welcome addi-
tion this year.
Cheers to Brad Smith. For three
straight years, the Heisman Tro-
phy hopeful has given Jayhawk
fans plenty to cheer about. Nick
Reid, Charlton Keith and compa-
ny will be in Smith’s nightmares
this Halloween, no doubt.
Jeers to any KU students who
brought along an MU fan to the game.
Jeers to the MU fan who pur-
posely walked through the stu-
dent section in the fourth quar-
ter with his girlfriend, fipping
everyone off. Hope she realizes
he’s a keeper.
Worst fan attire: Anyone dressed
in neutral colors. Pick a side and
don’t leave us guessing.

What other school in the country
would have rushed the feld after defeat-
ing Missouri? Troy fans did last year, but
that’s about it.
Remember, New Mexico, 2-4 in the
Mountain West Conference, defeated
Missouri on the road 45-35 earlier this
No, it’s hard to imagine any fans, oth-
er than those of the worst football pro-
grams, getting excited about winning a
game against Missouri.
Don’t get me wrong, Jayhawk fans de-
served to be happy about the victory. It
ended a four-game losing streak and kept
slim hopes of a bowl game alive. But
tearing down the goalposts was extreme.
Fans should have waited, realizing
that next week was the game that merit-
ed a large celebration. Kansas has an op-
portunity to end a 37-year losing streak
to Nebraska.
The Kansas Athletics Department will
continue its efforts to keep fans in the
“I think students should be sending a
message to themselves,” Marchiony said.
“Even next week if we beat Nebraska,
the smartest thing they could do would
be to stay off the feld. Until that hap-
pens, there will be the danger of some-
one getting seriously hurt or killed.”
The only time in recent memory that
KU fans have acted this badly was in
2003, when a handful of students rushed
the court at Allen Fieldhouse following a
victory against Texas. Even then, about
16,000 fans stayed in their seats and
booed those foolish enough to run onto
the court.
On Saturday, when one person got
on the feld, more than a thousand fol-
lowed. To see so many classless Kansas
fans was most disappointing.
The Kansas football teamisn’t a pow-
erhouse and it won’t be anytime soon.
But it’s time for Kansas fans to recognize
the steps this team has made since the
Terry Allen era and stop rushing the feld
after mediocre victories.
F Robinett is an Austin, Texas, senior
in journalism. He is Kansan sports
continued from page 1B
The staff responsible for low-
ering the goalposts couldn’t get
its job done because NCAA
regulations state that the posts
must stay up until the clock has
reached zero. The rules also
call for a school to have backup
goalposts on hand at the stadi-
um in the event that one comes
down before the game ends.
Unlike last year, the play-
ers did not celebrate with the
fans on the feld. Most of them
quickly went into the locker
room, but a few players stopped
to pose for pictures or interview
with television reporters.
Senior quarterback Jason
Swanson said the team went
into the locker room and had a
party of its own.
“It’s the greatest feeling ever
to come in here, everybody
throwing Gatorade around,”
Swanson said. “That’s how it
should be.”
As the parties continued both
inside and outside the locker
room, security guards kept a
close eye on the celebration on
the feld to ensure that no one
got hurt.
“It’s dangerous, and we don’t
need to do that,” Mangino said.
“We’re better than that.”
Mangino also referred to an
incident last Saturday at the
University of Minnesota-Mor-
ris, where a student was killed
after a goalpost fell on him.
The recent event did not
seem to damper the festivities
for those who rushed the feld.

Big 12 Power Rankings are vot-
ed on by Ryan Colaianni and
Daniel Berk, Kansas football
writers, as well as Kellis Robi-
nett, sports editor, and Eric Sor-
rentino, associate sports editor.
The Texas Longhorns remained
at the No. 1 spot after improving
to 8-0 on the season. Texas had a
scare inits game against Oklahoma
State, falling behind 28-9 at one
point. The Longhorns regroupedat
halftime and outscored the Cow-
boys 35-0 in the second half. Okla-
homa State witnessed a similar oc-
currence in Austin, Texas, last year.
Oklahoma State was ahead 35-7,
but Texas scored 42 unanswered
points to beat the Cowboys 56-
35. In the teams’ last three games
against each other, Texas has out-
scored Oklahoma State 118-0 in
the second half.
Texas quarterback Vince Young
set a Texas school record for total
offense in a game with 267 yards
rushing and 239 yards passing.
The biggest winner of the week
was Iowa State. The Cyclones
marched into College Station and
beat the Texas A&MAggies 42-14.
This gave themthe biggest jump of
the week. The Cyclones moved up
three spots to sixth.
The biggest loser of the week
was Missouri. The Tigers dropped
fve spots in the rankings to ninth
after losing 13-3 to Kansas this
weekend. Voters ranked Missouri
as high as seven and as low as 11.
Kansas contained Missouri quar-
terback Brad Smith, who came off
246 yards and three rushing touch-
downs against Nebraska. In Law-
rence, the KU defense held Smith
to 38 yards rushing and 141 yards
passing with no touchdowns.
Oklahoma moved up two spots
to fourth. The Sooners are coming
off a road victory against Nebras-
ka, a game that saw running back
AdrianPetersonreturntoform. Pe-
terson rumbled for 146 yards and
two touchdowns. Although Okla-
homa has lost three games, it is still
4-1 in the Big 12 Conference.

Monday, Oct. 31, 2005: Often, you
might want to retreat from situa-
tions. Actually, maintaining a low
profile will work well for you and
will add to the lucky nature of your
year. Think through decisions rather
than have a knee-jerk reaction.
Often, you will want to sort out your
feelings. Your instincts are unusu-
ally strong, especially with money.
In fact, you might restructure your
finances and the manner in which
you handle them. If you are single,
you will have many admirers; just
make sure the person you choose
is available. If you are attached,
plan plenty of getaways together.
Be more open. LIBRA makes a good
healer or doctor for you.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
HHHHH You simply are not able
to get away from the Halloween en-
thusiasm. Just when you are deep in
concentration, a witch or gremlin pops
by. Why fght the inevitable? Network
while getting into the humor of the
moment. Tonight: At one of the many
pumpkin parties.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
HHH You might need to be an anchor,
as everyone trips on his or her alter
ego or fantasy character. You get the
job done and fnish off what others
might be too distracted to do. Your
amazing sense of graciousness wins
over a loved one. Tonight: Just make
sure you are ready for the trick-or-
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
HHHHH Your enthusiasm can’t
be quelled. You see whatever oc-
curs in a positive light. Allow more
humor and fun in, especially today.
Someone might make a last-minute
suggestion. Go for it. Tonight: Be a
kid again. You might like a piece of
candy or two.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
HHHHH You naturally fnd fun,
though for whatever reason, you might
feel a need to anchor in those around
you. If you can work from home,
please do. Be ready to pick up where
someone has left off. Tonight: Make
sure you have enough candy.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
HHHH You naturally get into the
levity of the day. In fact, you might be
happy just watching the kids and their
friends getting excited. Think “fun”
when making plans later in the day.
You won’t be able to contain others.
Tonight: Hang where the fun is, or be
the one distributing the candy.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
HHH Last-minute details could keep
you in your head and not as aware as
you would like to be. You might need
to make a last-minute purchase. Also,
an expenditure might surround your
home or domestic life. Tonight: Don’t
be extravagant.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
HHHHH With the Moon in your sign,
where you direct your energy counts.
You are likely to succeed. Be willing
to adjust and make positive changes
if need be. People might be unusually
unpredictable. Tonight: Either watch-
ing the action or being part of it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
HH You might want to be more of an
observer than a player right now. Use
extreme caution with your fnances;
you could have an unexpected expen-
diture. Don’t take a comment person-
ally. Tonight: Vanish like a ghost.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
HHHHH No matter how many times
you twist and turn your plans, you like
the end results. You do need to be
around people, be it at work or in your
personal life. You make a great addi-
tion. Tonight: Get into the fun nature of
the night.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
HHHH Whatever goes on, you natu-
rally fall into the position of leader of
the gang. Your decision counts. Others
will naturally accept you as wise and
intelligent. Tonight: Get into the Hal-
loween spirit.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
HHHHH Your imagination could
go haywire or really be out there,
especially if conjuring up any ideas,
projects or Halloween plans. Listen
to a friend who might have a more
grounded perspective. Tonight: Let
your imagination rock and roll now,
even if it means a last-minute change.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
HHHHH A partner dominates plans,
ideas and decisions. Don’t buck this
trend, for now. Let this person have his
or her moment of glory. This person
wants you to focus on just him or her.
Do it. Be a good listener. Tonight: Enjoy
the moment.
NEW YORK — What’s it like
growing up as the magical Harry
Potter? For teen actor Daniel
Radcliffe, it’s not that weird.
Radcliffe, the 16-year-old
star of the upcoming “Harry
Potter and the Goblet of Fire,”
has spent almost a third of his
life making movies. His latest
flm, based on J.K. Rowling’s
novel, opens in two weeks.
Radcliffe was frst cast as Pot-
ter when he was 11. Since then,
a lot has changed: he’s taller
and his face has become more
defned, his voice has changed,
he’s got complexion issues and is
growing starter stubble.
Radcliffe is still waiting for
one teenage milestone — a
girlfriend. Have sparks fown
between him and Emma
Watson, who plays the nerdy
Hermione Granger?
“No. But I had a big crush
on her when I frst met her,
defnitely,” he said.

The five soccer seniors
could not have left the Jay-

pleased Friday.
Before the match, forward

Kimberly Karfonta, Caroline
Smith and Jessica Smith were
Kansas ended the regular
season by beating Missouri
3-2 in double overtime on Se-
nior Day with the game-win-
ning goal from junior defend-
er Holly Gault.
Kansas soccer coach Mark
Francis said the senior class
would graduate as one of the
most successful KU classes, in
terms of its tenure and what the
program accomplished.
“They’ve all done an awe-
some job,” Francis said.
Caroline Smith, an Edina,
Minn., native, scored the 50th
goal of her career in the season
“I waited to get it today
because it was senior day
and against Missouri,” Smith
She said de-
spite the seniors
being honored,
the most impor-
tant part of the
weekend was
getting a victory
over Missouri.
Smith will
leave as Kansas’
all-time leader
in points, goals,
assists, game-
winning goals
and shots.
Braman, a
Niwot, Colo.,
native who
transferred to Kansas from
Ohio State, said her experi-
ence at Kansas was amaz-
ing. She notched her first
goal of the
year in Ames,
Iowa, on Oct.
2 against Iowa
Jessica Smith,
co-captain and
Wichita native,
will leave Kan-
sas with a hat
trick to remem-
ber this year.
She scored three
goals against
O k l a h o m a
State on Oct. 7
in Kansas’s 4-1
“I would like to thank my
teammates for always open-
ing their hearts and minds to
who I am and what I stand
for,” Smith said.
Karfonta will be remem-
bered as the only KU play-
er capable of performing a
round-off backflip after she
scored a goal.
The only time the Edmond,
Okla., native did not perform
the backflip was on her game-
winning goal against Texas on
Oct. 23.
That game was the Jay-
hawks’ first victory over the
Longhorns in school history.
Throughout her career, she
has been a key contributor
and added depth to the team.
“The best memories of all
have been the friends I have
made,” Karfonta said. “I know
that I have 23 friends for the
rest of my life.”
Ferguson, a Glen Elyn, Ill.,
native, said her favorite mem-
ory was when Kansas won
the Big 12 Championship last
“I just remember the excite-
ment of every player, whether
they played and made a huge
impact or made an impact just
by cheering,” Ferguson said.
There is a possibility the
team will play again in Law-
rence, depending on how well
it does at the Big 12 Tourna-
ment in San Antonio. If Friday
was the last time the seniors
played at the Jayhawk Soccer
Complex, all have left with
great memories.

sica Smith and Caroline Smith — won their fnal home game at Jayhawk Soccer Complex on a double-overtime goal
by junior defender Holly Gault.

Kansas fnished in a four-
team tie for second place.
All fve seniors’ parents were
introduced before the game for
the Jayhawks’ most stress-in-
ducing game of the season.
Playing to keep its season
alive, Missouri (9-7-3, 3-5-2 Big
12) fell behind, tied the game and
took the lead in the back-and-
forth match.
“It’s huge,”
Kansas soccer
coach Mark Fran-
cis said. “And
being a Kansas-
Missouri game,
there’s always a
lot of emotion in
that game, even
if there is nothing
on the line out-
side of that. Ob-
viously, for the
seniors, too, we
wanted to win it
for them.”
C a r o l i n e
Smith had Kan-
sas on the board within the third
minute on senior Jessica Smith’s
assist. Caroline Smith’s eighth goal
of the season marked the 50th of
her career.
“I just wanted to get it today,”
Smith joked after the game. “It
was senior day against Missouri.
But like I’ve said, the goals and
that stuff doesn’t really matter.
We got the ‘W’ and that’s what
is important.”
Smith’s early goal highlighted an
abundance of offensive movement,
but the spark was not consistent.
Missouri seniors Amber
Swinehart and Jennifer Nobis
teamed up in the 22nd minute
for Swineheart’s 12th goal of the
season to tie the game at one.
“When they equalized, I think
the momentum shifted,” Fran-
cis said. “They really picked it
up and we kind of backed off a
little bit.”
Missouri took a 2-1 lead not even
a minute into the second half.
Swinehart and Nobis teamed
up again, only this time switch-
ing roles. Nobis tallied her sev-
enth goal of the season, tapping
the ball in after Kansas defend-
ers defected it.
This would mark the end of
Missouri’s offense.
Another ten minutes passed be-
fore Kansas tied the score, but the
shift in pace changed immediately.
The Jayhawks refused to lose.
It started with Michelle Ras-
mussen, a junior from South
Dakota, driving in a jaw-drop-
ping beauty from 25 yards out.
Rasmussen tied the game with
the goal in the 57th minute.
“You can tell
when you hit it
when you strike
a ball well,” Ras-
mussen said. “It
was fun and a
good goal.”
From half-
time to Gault’s
104t h-mi nut e
clincher, the
Kansas offense
nearly tripled
its frst half shot
count. Kansas
outshot Mis-
souri 30-13 and
doubled its shot
on goal count
“They went ahead and I
think that gave us a little bit
of fire under our butts,” Fran-
cis said. “After we tied it up,
I think we dominated the rest
of the half.”
In true All-American form,
Smith shot 12 times in the
match, seven of which were on
goal. One actually was a goal,
and she took time to pick up her
eighth assist.
“You’ve got to give Missouri
credit,” Francis said. “They
didn’t quit regardless of the
score and the situation. They
kept themselves in the game.”
By the time Gault nailed the
golden goal in double overtime,
the 600-plus fans in attendance
sounded more like 6,000 fans
roaring in celebration.
“It was great to beat Missouri
on our own feld,” Smith said.
“The possibility that we could
have ended Missouri’s season
makes it even sweeter. It’s good
to watch Missouri go home with
a loss.”
