Movie piracy primary issue

Kansan staff writer

Hollywood and politics lecture series
Who: Dan Glickman When: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday Where: Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics Who: Alex Graves When: 7:30 p.m. Thursday Where: Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics Both events are free and open to the public.
— Dole Institute of Politics
Two native Kansans and Hollywood names will be on campus this week. Dan Glickman, president of the Motion Picture Association of America, Inc., and Alex Graves, executive producer of “The West Wing,” will speak at the Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics for the “Hollywood and Politics” lecture series today and Thursday. Glickman will focus on how politics and Hollywood intertwine. As a former politician and current lobbyist for the film industry, Glickman has had experience with both spheres, said Bill Lacy, director of the Dole Institute. “He is in the perfect position to talk about Hollywood and politics,” Lacy said. Gayle Osterberg, spokesperson for MPAA, said Glickman would also address the movie industry’s biggest challenge: piracy. Osterberg said movie piracy has been a growing problem on campuses and for the industry, which loses more than $5 billion a year. The University of Kansas will be Glickman’s third stop on a tour of campuses nationwide, Osterberg said. Glickman, from Wichita, spent nine terms serving in the U.S. House of Representatives representing Kansas’ 4th District. He was the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture from 1995 to 2001. Glickman

is the director of the Institute of Politics at Harvard University. Glickman became president and CEO of the MPAA in September of 2004. Graves, an El Dorado native and a former KU student who graduated from the University of South California, will focus on filmmaking and script writing. He will show scenes from “The West Wing” to illustrate his lecture, Lacy said. Graves is an executive producer, director and writer of the Emmy Award-winning show. “He is a triple-threat individual who has proved himself over the past five or six years,” said Chuck Berg, professor of theatre and film. Berg said Graves would show how the program connected to the contemporary political scene and where the ideas for shows came from.

Pot ordinance awaits passage

An ordinance outlawing the possession of marijuana in Lawrence appeared in front of the city commission for a vote Tuesday, only to be pushed back to be considered again on Nov. 29. The ordinance, which started on Sept. 6 when the commission directed city staff to draft it, would have moved jurisdiction of possession of marijuana and paraphernalia from district court to municipal court for first-time offenders. The ordinance was pushed back because commissioners couldn’t agree on a minimum fine. Commissioners Sue Hack and Mike Amyx insisted on a $300 minimum, while Mayor Dennis “Boog” Highberger and commissioner Mike Rundle wanted something smaller — in the range of zero to $100. Highberger and Rundle reminded Amyx and Hack that the Kansas Uniform Controlled Sub-

stances Act had no minimum fine, but they were not swayed. Commissioner David Schauner proposed a compromise and suggested the ordinance have a minimum fine of $300, but a possible decrease of that fine at the judge’s discretion if “mitigating factors” existed. Schauner could not say what those factors would be. “I have a goal of making sure the public understands that we aren’t trying to decriminalize, but I want to give judges the ability to deal with each defendant in regard to particular circumstances,” Schauner said. Rundle and Schauner voted in favor of the amended ordinance, while Highberger, Hack and Amyx voted against it. Immediately after that vote, Highberger proposed a vote on the ordinance as it stood, without a minimum fine. The ordinance was again voted down 2-3, with only Rundle and Highberger voting for it.

Added faculty helps Spanish majors enroll

Jill Kuhnheim found openings in the 400-level Spanish classes. She can’t remember the last time that happened. During the past two years, the department of Spanish and Portuguese has hired six new professors who teach more classes than the professors they replaced, said Kuhnheim, professor and chairwoman of the department. Now, more sections of classes are offered, and students in the growing department can get into the classes they need. Three former professors in the department were on phase retirement, which meant that they received a full salary but were not required to teach as many classes. Another former professor was a joint professor with the Humanities and Western Civilization de-

partment, which cut down on the number of classes he could teach. The department could not hire new professors because it did not have the money, but the five-year Tuition Enhancement Plan has given the funds for the new positions. The department has about 274 Spanish majors. This number has grown by more than 500 percent since 1997, when the department had 50 Spanish majors. In previous semesters, students came to Kuhnheim during the enrollment period in tears, worried that they would not be able to

graduate because they could not get into a particular class. Rachel Cloud, Lawrence senior, said that enrolling in Spanish classes had been hard throughout her four years as a Spanish major. “I’m excited for the younger students,” she said. Cloud said that several times she had to go to a class in which she wasn’t yet enrolled in hopes that someone would drop the class. “I had to take whatever was open until the second half of my junior year,” she said. “I didn’t have much selection.”

Another benefit is smaller classes. Before the new professors were hired, classes intended for 18 to 20 students would have 35, Kuhnheim said. The smaller a class is, the more each student benefits, said Patricia Tomé, Portevedra, Spain, graduate teaching assistant. With smaller classes, she has more one-on-one interaction with students. “They form a bond between them that you don’t see in a bigger class,” she said. — Edited by Becca Evanhoe

By aly Barland said he had not yet heard about the new program but said he would be interested in it. “It would encourage saving because most people don’t think fifty cents is a lot of money, but I think it would add up over a year or two,” Rickard said. Another benefit of the “Keep the Change” program is that it would allow students to balance their accounts easier because the program rounds up to the nearest whole dollar, Thorne said. For the first three months of participation in the program, Bank of America will match the savings deposited through purchases. After the three months, Bank of America will continue to match 5 percent of the savings each year. The “Keep the Change” program only allows savings of up to $250 a year. Dennis Rosen, business professor, teaches a marketing class and said that the program may alleviate guilt that customers feel when they make purchases. “The interesing thing here

Bank helps spenders save
Kansan staff writer
Bank of America is introducing a new program that can help students save whenever they spend. Bank of America’s program, “Keep the Change,” allows customers who use Bank of America Visa debit cards to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar. The extra money is automatically deposited into the customer’s savings account from the checking account. The program will help students because it will force them to save money every time they use their debit cards, said Grant Thorne, manager of Lawrence’s Bank of America, 900 Ohio St. Thorne said the program was not intended to encourage dependence on credit or debit cards but was created to help increase savings. David Rickard, Memphis, Tenn., junior, has been banking with Bank of America for five years. He
Kansan correspondent

Chuck Marsh

Associate professor of journalism
What are you involved with on campus? KU Libraries committee, doctoral committees working with grad students and the School of Education. What are some of your favorite newspapers? The Kansan, Lawrence Journal-World, The New York Times, different blogs, the Drudge Report. I like to go to different Web sites. It’s important to me to not just go to the conservative ones or the liberal ones, but both. I got to go to Karagatan about 10 years ago and I was so ignorant, I felt so sorry because all the people said “all the media are biased so we have to read five or six newspapers.” Now I’m trying to read five or six media from different perspectives to try and figure out where the middle is. How did it feel to win the HOPE Award the day that KU beat Nebraska? I told my wife after we beat Nebraska — I haven’t been to a KU football game since I was five and I’m 50 — and watched everybody run down onto the field, I said “You know, just drop me off at the mortuary, because I gotta go in and lie down, take me now, just take me now, I’ve been to the mountain top.” What is your favorite KU tradition? My favorite KU tradition is when we’re winning a sports event. But my favorite thing about KU is Watson Library. I don’t know if that’s a tradition, but the best thing about KU is Watson Library. The stacks smell so good and you go back there and you smell the paper — I love Watson Library. But I don’t know if that’s a tradition. My favorite tradition is when we’re winning a game and the Rock Chalk chant begins. Every hair I have left is standing on end; it gives me the shivers — I love it. — Edited by Kellis Robinett

What is a typical day like for you? I answer a lot of e-mail because I’m teaching 101, but it starts off with me running out the door, spilling coffee, kissing my kids goodbye. Then there’s the whole flurry of teaching, researching. It sounds like I’m dodging the answer, but there’s not a typical day. Why did you decide to teach journalism? I love storytelling. That happens too much in lecture. I love telling stories. I’m fascinated Marsh with the English language; it’s the greatest thing since Greek. What better than journalism? Well, maybe a novelist, but I don’t have any talent in that area. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Professional quarterback. They never gave me a chance! Lack of talent had a lot to do with it, but I still think if they just suit me up, I could still go in a game. In fact, though, I have no athletic ability. I just wanted to be an NFL quarterback. What classes do you teach? Journalism 101 Media and Society, 435 Message Development, and 608 Ethics, those are the three most common. I teach more strategic communications, but I’m one of those lucky ones that gets to crossover. Ethics is a crossover course. What is your favorite class to teach? I don’t have a favorite. Whichever one I’m in at the moment. I really don’t. Where did you attend college? KU, three degrees. I have a BA, MA, and Ph.D. I spent 11 years as a student.

is they’re tying savings in with spending,” Rosen said. The program was an example of Bank of America trying to distinguish itself from other banks, Rosen said. He said it would be important for users of the program to continue to buy things that they need and not to spend frivolously in an attempt to save more with the program. One student does not have extra money to deposit and would rather not deposit it in a savings account. Kristen Perdue, Prairie Village junior, is a Bank of America customer but she said she tried to use the debit card sparingly and would not be drawn by the new program. “I don’t have a lot of extra money,” Perdue said. Thorne said that “Keep the Change” started on Oct. 17 and that he had seen a strong interest in the option so far. “Most of the accounts that are being opened are getting that,” Thorne said.

He said that accounts already in existence are adding the option to their account. All customers have to do is notify the bank that they want to participate in the program, and their purchases with the debit card will automatically round up. The program automatically moves the change from the checking account into the savings account, so users must keep a close eye on the balance in their checking accounts. To prevent penalties from overdrawing, Bank of America customers can use the overdraft protection policy, which uses funds from the savings account to cover the checking account if it is overdrawn. Matt Pallen, personal banker at Bank of America, said the bank does benefit from the new program. “We’re benefiting because we are maintaining existing savings accounts and attracting new customers,” Pallen said. — Edited by Kellis Robinett

Web file-sharing service Grokster agrees to shut down, pay damages
LOS ANGELES — The popular Internet filesharing service Grokster Ltd. may be going the way of Napster. In a surprise settlement with the recording and movie industry announced Monday, Grokster agreed to shut down its music- and movie-swapping software and pay $50 million in damages. Grokster executives indicated they planned to launch a legal, fee-based “Grokster 3G” service before year’s end under a new parent company, believed to be Mashboxx of Virginia Beach, Va. “It is time for a new beginning,” Grokster said in a statement issued from its corporate headquarters in the West Indies. On its Web site, Grokster said it “hopes to have a safe and legal service available soon.” Mashboxx, headed in part by former Grokster President Wayne Rosso, already has signed a licensing agreement with Sony BMG Music Entertainment. The terms of the settlement ban Grokster from participating, directly or indirectly, in the theft of copyrighted files and requires the company to stop giving away its software. Grokster lost an important Supreme Court ruling in June when justices ruled that the entertainment industry can file piracy lawsuits against technology companies caught encouraging customers to steal music and movies over the Internet. Grokster’s settlement does not affect other defendants in the case, including StreamCast Networks Inc., which distributes Morpheus, and Sharman Networks Ltd., which distributes Kazaa.

Man gets life sentence for six murders
HAYWARD, Wis. - A Hmong immigrant convicted of murdering six deer hunters and attempting to kill two others after a trespassing dispute was sentenced to life in prison with no chance for parole. On Tuesday, Judge Norman Yackel ordered Chai Soua Vang, 37, to serve six life prison terms, one after the other, guaranteeing he would never be freed from prison. Yackel described Vang as a “time bomb ready to go off. ” “These crimes are not isolated acts, but a pattern of anti-social conduct, he said. ” Vang, a truck driver from St. Paul, Minn., was convicted on six counts of first-degree intentional homicide and three counts of attempted homicide in the Nov. 21 murders. Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager sought the maximum sentence for Vang, a father of seven children, arguing Vang could kill again, given his “explosive temperament” and lack of true remorse or regret. Vang was convicted of killing Robert Crotteau, his son Joey Crotteau, Denny Drew, Allan Laski, Jessica Willers and Mark Roidt.

6a Other RAs mentioned experiences such as being duct-taped into a room or being asked by residents to keep goldfish in the hall toilets. The worst Horner said she has had to deal with was moving furniture out of elevators that students had put in them or the occasional false fire alarm. Kristin Barnett, Evergreen, Colo., freshman and a resident on Horner’s floor, said that over Halloween weekend someone set off the fire alarm at 4 a.m., and the whole building had to clear out for an hour while everything was checked and secured. “Katie was on duty at the time, and she had the job of checking everything and finding out who did it,” Barnett said. “But she didn’t pressure people to find out who did it; instead she gave them a safe place to go to talk about it.” Besides dealing with the occasional joke, fire alarm or party bust, Horner is responsible for mediating any possible disputes between roommates on her floor. All the resident assistants on campus spent a week before school started this semester training to handle possible disputes among residents, so they would be ready to handle them when they happened during the

school year. Horner is also in charge of organizing three programs per semester: one social, such as an outing to a game or restaurant; and two educational, such as a bulletin board or lessons. She recently hosted salsa-dancing lessons for the residents. Horner said the job immediately put her in a position to be more responsible, not just for the residents on her floor but also for herself. “Being an RA has made me both stronger and wiser. You really have to be sure of yourself in handling different things,” Horner said. “I’ve definitely become more educated on problems and how to handle them.” Her job does not go unnoticed. Her residents recognize her responsibilities and dedication. “I admire Katie for being willing to take a job that would put her in a position where she might not be well-liked because she has to watch over people,” Barnett said. Besides the responsibilities and time commitment, Horner said that she enjoyed her job and that she enjoyed her floor. She said she didn’t seem to mind the occasional middle-of-the-night wake up or interruptions to her morning routine. It’s all routine in the life of an RA. — Edited by Alison Peterson

Amyx disagreed with Schauner because he didn’t want to put a judge in a situation to pick and choose who was going to be subject to a lesser fine. Schauner said making decisions was what judges did. Laura Green, director of the Drug Policy Forum of Kansas,

said she had expected the ordinance to pass but was pleased that the commission thoughtfully considered it. Green said she would have been glad to see the ordinance pass even with a minimum fine because her concern was to reduce the amount of harm on students. Students convicted in municipal court instead of district court wouldn’t lose financial aid. Leslie Eldridge, community affairs director of the Student Senate, said the Student Senate supported the ordinance because it would

keep more students in school. “We believe the ordinance is a student-rights issue,” Eldridge said. “We recognize that many students depend on federal financial aid to finance their educations. We also know that some students will unfortunately have to leave school if they lose financial aid.” Green thought Schauner’s compromise was reasonable even though she did not agree with imposing a minimum fine. Mandatory minimum sentences do not allow a judge to use his or her discretion for deciding an appropriate

penalty, she said. Ordinances contain minimum fines only when offenders harm other people, property or the environment, Green said. Smoking marijuana doesn’t fall under any of those three categories, she said. “Personally, I think $300 is outrageous,” Green said. “A DUI is $500. That’s pretty cheap considering that a drunk driver could kill someone. It should be $5,000.” Schauner, Hack and Amyx all said they sought the public’s comment on the issue and didn’t want

to proceed without a minimum fine based on that comment. Rosemary Hill was one Lawrence citizen who was outraged about the ordinance’s possible passage. Over the weekend she sent a letter, which strongly opposed the ordinance, to the commission. She said she couldn’t believe Schauner said on Oct. 25 that a minimum fine could become a financial burden for the defendant. She said her biggest problem with the ordinance was that students convicted of violating it for the first time would still receive fi-

nancial aid. “I don’t want my tax dollars going toward someone breaking the law,” she said. “This is not a slap-on-thewrist thing. It’s a drug. I have two grandsons at a vulnerable age, and they’ve been taught that drug use is wrong.” City staff will provide their findings to the commission at the Nov. 29 meeting, when the commission will vote on the ordinance again. — Edited by Alison Peterson

Breaking up is easy to do
I live life by three simple rules. Never wear flip-flops to a urinal, never eat meat out of a vending machine and never lose a friend to a dominated relationship. Not every relationship is like this, but we’ve all gone through one. A buddy finds a new significant other who changes everything about him and erases all his friends. Meanwhile, a squadron of pals is left hanging and the friend is nowhere to be found. The Super Bowl is on, and he’s shoveling the snow off her sidewalk. It is time to break the ritual of “boy meets girl, boy likes girl, girl makes boy watch ‘The Notebook.’” The guy who walked himself into this trap is defenseless against the witch-like powers of the cunning female. His only chance at redemption is through you, the best friends. If you let him spiral downward much longer, he will be a lost cause. All hope is not gone. There is a way to get him back, and this is how. First you have to locate where he is. When doing this you need to remember a few things. Then, he will never be honest and tell you exactly where he is. He doesn’t want his pride hurt. There are a few likely places to find your friend. Those places are a Ryan Cabrera concert or pottery class. The most likely spot, however is at a mall, carrying all her bags. The reason a mall is a likely place to find the couple is that not only can they buy clothes, but they can take family portraits for the holiday card they plan on sending to friends and family. You probably won’t get a card, though.


The second thing you need to remember is that he won’t look the same. He will likely be wearing a giant knitted sweater. Depending on the season, the sweater may vary in design. Look for cornucopias or reindeer on the sweater for the upcoming holiday season. Supplementing his disastrous wardrobe, his hair will be parted, and he will be clean shaven. There’s a chance he may be toting a tiny, Paris Hilton-esque dog in a little pink handbag. After finding him, here is what needs to be done: You and two other friends have to wait for the time she finally lets him go the bathroom. She will probably ask him to wait with the bags until she goes first. While he’s waiting, one friend approaches him and tells him there is an emergency. He will be surprised and disappointed you found him in his new habitat. You need a good lie to get him to leave his girlfriend in the bathroom. Tell him his favorite super model is signing underwear in Victoria’s Secret. If that does not work, head-butt him and drag him away as quick as possible. While the boyfriend is distracted or unconscious, the other two friends will enter the women’s bathroom. One will carry a camera; the other will be wearing a trench-coat and nothing else. The friend with the coat on should now take it off. Make

sure both friends have ski-masks so she can’t identify you. Kick the door to her stall open. She will then have a look of surprise on her face. That look should resemble an “O-face.” As the naked man jumps close to her face, the friend with the camera should snap as many pictures as possible. The pictures will resemble moments of infidelity. Scamper out of the bathroom and into a safer environment. Make sure to bring the boyfriend with you, it will make her even madder. After the pictures are developed, show them to the boyfriend. Tell him how sorry you are, but it is obvious she’s not interested in him. Throw in a “She wasn’t good for you” and a “She hates kittens.” Meanwhile, send duplicates to her and threaten to send them to her family and post them on the Internet. Between his anguish and her future being ruined, there is no way they will stay together. All this may seem a little “hasty,” “unethical” or “just plain wrong.” But who’s to judge you? Machiavelli wrote if the ends justify the means, do it. Are male, full-frontal nudity and a little blackmail worth keeping your friend? Absolutely it is. Don’t accept “I’m spending time with Sarah’s family,” or “Catherine and I are crocheting scarves” as answers to your invitations anymore. Get out there and save your friend before he slips into the black hole that is “Uber-whipped.” ✦ Jorgensen is a Baldwin junior in journalism.

Students’ ignorance of current events will come full circle
I don’t quite know how to put this, but what’s going on in Washington is, well, kind of a big deal. Now, I’m not the type of person who engages in political debates on a regular basis, nor am I a person who normally gives a damn about what’s going on in Washington. Politics are boring. They’re boring, they’re stupid and frankly, no one our age cares about or understands them. Watching the news is about as enticing as having sex with Dick Cheney. For those of you like me who get their news from ‘The Daily Show’ and the Kansan, I’m sorry to say this, but it’s time to switch to CNN or pick up The New York Times, because something big is rumbling in the stomach of the Capitol. It’s time to wake up and pay attention, because your future’s on the line. It’s our generation that’s going to be left with a torn and tattered economy, a mess overseas and no health insurance to give us anti-depressants after we realize it’s our responsibility to clean up the mess that’s been made. Come on, we should be outraged at our America. What have we become? Half the reason things are so screwed up around here is because people, like most of us, just don’t care. Take a look around, fellow victims, at the country we will soon inherit. I’m disgusted with the morals our country has become accustomed to, and I hope that our generation will be the one that will return America to the values set forth by our grandparents. People started paying attention when the White House kept stonewalling an investigation on the misinformation that led to the war in Iraq and when Lewis “Scooter” Libby was indicted for lying to the American people about matters of international security. Teddy Roosevelt once wisely advised Americans to “walk softly and carry a big stick.” It seems our motto now is to stomp around and beat people


up with a tree branch. American policy has always been to only engage in war when national security is under a direct threat. There never were any weapons of mass destruction.

“For those of you
like me who get their news from The Daily Show and the Kansan, I’m sorry to say this, but its time to switch to CNN or pick up the New York Times, because something is rumbling in the stomach of the capital. ”
CIA envoy Joseph Wilson, in a preliminary investigation in 2002 of a supposed weapons transaction, concluded that, “I have little choice but to conclude that it was highly doubtful that any such transaction had ever taken place.” It is now suspiciously evident, according to Newsweek, “...that the Bush administration, and in particular the powerful, secretive vice president, willfully bent the facts to lead America into the Iraq War.” Two thousand soldiers have lost their lives in that war, and for what? A new scandal in the news is the government’s nonchalant position on torturing detainees in prisons outside the United States. New reports have confirmed that the inhumane treatment of prisoners at Abu-Gharib wasn’t anything unusual.

Senator John McCain wrote an amendment that would prohibit cruel or degrading treatment of prisoners “regardless of nationality or physical location.” Vice President Dick Cheney has vehemently tried to convince the senator to omit the preceding condition. We are violating the very policy we tried so hard to acquire in the Geneva Convention after WWII. As Senator John McCain eloquently put it, “This isn’t about who they are. This is about who we are. These are the values that distinguish us from our enemies.” What values do we stand for? We no longer care about the well-being of the country, because it all seems hopeless. Nothing we do will change what’s going on in Washington. But we are the hope for the future. By ignoring the news and not caring about what’s going on in our nation, we are simply empowering the corrupt politicians who put us in this miserable position in the first place. The less we know, the less equipped we are to bring our country back to what it stands for. My ancestors challenged the British to ensure that I could grow up in a free country. My two grandfathers fought in WWII in the hopes that I could grow up in a safe country. My parents protested and marched on Washington so I’d grow up in a country of equality. I sat around and watched The Daily Show. It is our responsibility to pay attention to the issues now so that when next year, an election year, rolls around, we take advantage of the rights we have and elect people who will truly represent our values and secure our future. This is your wake-up call. Our future is at stake. Good night, and you stay classy, KU. ✦ McLeod is an Overland Park sophomore in journalism and French.

I would like to compliment Dustin Elliott, a biochemistry major who hails from Overland Park, on being a stunning example of the type of student that will be produced by Kansas schools if science curricula fail to teach the scientific method and instead succumb to the confusion between true science and mythological musings. In his Nov. 7 article, Elliott correctly states that our understanding of evolution is shaped by the formation and testing of hypotheses. He fails, however, to hold

his own intelligent design “hypothesis” to the same standards, accepting it as “a plausible explanation” of the origins of life on Earth without requiring it to be evaluated by any of the observational and experimental methods employed by true scientists. Further, he misunderstands basic evolutionary biology. He presents microevolution and macroevolution as competing theories by supporting one and attempting to refute the other. These two realms of evolutionary biology differ in the

time scales at which they investigate evolution, but they go hand-in-hand by linking things like genetic variability and natural selection with processes such as speciation and extinction. Elliott has glossed over the resounding evidence that supports both micro- and macroevolution while he confuses creation stories with good science. ✦ Heather York Lake Geneva, Wis., Ph.D. candidate in ecology and evolutionary biology.

Her day duty begins the hour before she goes to classes. After day duty and classes, Horner makes her way back to Oliver where she has desk duty, which involves a few hours of answering phones, sorting mail, organizing documentation slips and directing students and visitors to what they need or where they need to go. Once a week Horner has night rounds. Beginning at 9 p.m., she begins on the top floor of Oliver and slowly makes her way down to the bottom floor, while stopping to talk with residents to make sure everything is secure. She goes out again at 11 p.m., after the building’s quiet hours have begun,

to make sure all doors are locked, fire extinguishers are in place, bathrooms are clean and secure and the noise level is at a minimum. She is on night duty from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. the next day. Horner said that when RAs do not have night rounds, they have a 2 a.m. curfew and must be available to handle anything should problems arise in the middle of the night. Horner has been woken up more than once in the middle of the night to break up a party or deal with intoxicated residents. “As much as the residents hate being busted, it is just as hard for us to bust them,” Horner said. “The RAs aren’t here just to discipline; we also try to build relationships with the residents.” RAs also have to handle the occasional practical joke from residents.

Points for good behavior
The KU football team is coming off its two biggest victories since Mark Mangino was hired four years ago and is one victory away from bowl eligibility. But what is most impressive about this group of guys is how they have respected the coaches, the organization and each other by staying out of trouble off the field — a problem that had been growing in KU Athletics. J.R. Giddens’ altercation at the Moon Bar in May and Bruce Ringwood’s fight at a Kenny Chesney concert in August brought criticism to the whole athletics program. Much of the credit for the team’s recent good behavior goes to Mangino for developing such a good bond with his players, but he should be commended for making the difficult decision back in March to kick former running back John Randle off the team. Yes, the name John Randle is merely dust in the wind around these parts these days. He’s been forgotten completely. Randle was arrested for the fourth time after getting into a fight on March 13. Two days later, Mangino had enough of the extra baggage and dismissed Randle from the team. He chose to get rid of a player with huge offensive potential, a player who elevated Kansas to its biggest victory of the 2004 season at homecoming against Kansas State. Randle had a lot of talent and possibly could have been a huge help to this program, but Mangino decided that didn’t matter. Another example involves the Philadelphia Eagles and Terrell Owens. The organization suspended one of the best football players for conduct detrimental to the team. They are admirably sending Owens home for boneheaded comments to the media about his contract and, most recently, about how the team would be better with Brett Favre as quarterback. The situations aren’t identical, but they do have similarities. While John Randle’s ability to get along with his teammates was never a question, his presence in the media for negative reasons was. Owens is a poor teammate who mouths off to the press just for attention, and John Randle got arrested repeatedly and spent some nights in jail. Both are examples of poison for a team. Give credit to Eagles coach Andy Reid and Mangino, who have the spines to take action on this type of player. It’s a shame to see players with talent give it all up because they can’t behave in an orderly fashion, and it’s a problem that’s becoming more common. As for Kansas, the running game hasn’t missed a beat. Senior running back Clark Green has played excellently in the past two weeks. Sophomore running back Jon Cornish stepped in this season and helped KU fans forget about Randle by making the most of his opportunity. And don’t forget about Gary Green II, the redshirt freshman who is waiting to show what he can do. It doesn’t matter how much talent you have in sports. If you aren’t going to act respectfully off the field, you run the risk of getting suspended or dismissed. Anyone can be replaced. F  allisaWoodbridge,Va., H seniorinjournalism.

Season begins with tonight’s exhibition

Big stage debut

Russell Robinson chuckles when he talks about his roommate Micah Downs’ first game in Allen Fieldhouse. “I know Micah’s first shot is going to be an air ball,” the sophomore guard laughed. “He will be so nervous.” Downs, along with his three freshmen counterparts, Mario Chalmers, Julian Wright and Brandon Rush, will make his debut in a Kansas uniform as Kansas opens its exhibition season against Fort Hays State at 7 tonight in Allen Fieldhouse. Despite playing in big games in

high school and the McDonald’s All-American game, Downs and the other freshmen know it will be a nerve-racking experience to take the court in the Fieldhouse for the first time. “I’m already nervous,” Downs said Monday before practice. “I mean, we played in front of some big crowds in some tournaments and stuff, but I don’t think I’ve ever played in front of 16,000.” Downs isn’t the only one who might be shaking in his Adidas’ tonight. Kansas men’s basketball coach Bill Self said Rush was so nervous before Late Night that he was relieved to find out he wasn’t starting. “We picked starting lineups at Late Night by flipping a coin, and he called it,” Self said. “When lost he went ‘yeah’ because he was so nervous.”

during game situations. “I am extremely anxious,” Case said. “I might even be a little nervous since it’s been so long since I played in a game.” There are seven guards in the Kansas backcourt who have the potential to be successful at their positions, so Case knows the competition for minutes will be intense. But with so many young players, he is one of the veterans — an element that he thinks will help squeeze him into the rotation. “I feel like I have a chance to get a lot of time,” Case said. “I plan on that. I just work hard and show that I can be a leader and help the young guys out, and I think I could really help the team.” During his redshirt year, Case said watching former players like Keith Langford and Aaron Miles helped him better understand the leadership role. He also hit the weight room, put on 10 pounds and spent a lot of time in the gym working on his shot. Case and his teammates went home for only two weeks during the summer, and spent the rest of their time off school in Lawrence, participating in individual workouts with their coaches. Case said he felt like his shooting ability and defensive tenacity would be his ticket on the court this season. Kansas men’s basketball coach Bill Self agreed, saying if Case played his cards right, he could have the chance to help the Jayhawks. “He is our best shooter on our team, easily the best shooter as far as a perimeter shooter, and if he continues to work and get stronger and get better defensively, he can be a guy that can make a team a lot better because he brings a dimension to the game that other teams are going to have to guard,” Self said. “He is a much-improved guy. The biggest thing is his strength because his redshirt year really helped him.” Self wants to make the Jayhawks play a faster game with more defensive pressure, which could be to Case’s advantage. Defensively, the Jayhawks will apply more full-court pressure to their opponents, an effort to utilize their quickness. “We are going to do a lot of full-court press,” Case said. “And you know, I’ve got to be able to guard my man 94 feet.” Right now, neither Self nor the players know who will fill the Kansas rotation. Self said that in a perfect world, he would like to play with nine players — four big men and five guards. He said that if they played at the up-tempo pace he hoped for, players would be fatigued after 20 or 25 minutes. Case said he was looking forward to playing this new, fast-paced style because it fit his game perfectly. “As of right now, we have a lot of depth, a lot of guys that play the same position. So that is one key that is going to help us be able to play quick,” Case said. “If somebody gets tired, somebody else can come right in and play. That is how I think I am going to be able to come in and contribute.” Self wants Case to contribute in another way as well. With few candidates to step up as leaders on this team, the Jayhawks would need Case to fill one of the leadership roles. “I think that Jeremy and Russell and J-Hawk and Christian are the best candidates for that leadership role,” Self said. “And I’d say they are all 25 percent of what they could potentially be. It is unfair, though, to say that they are more than that because right now they don’t know what their roles are going to be either. I think it is much easier to be a leader if you are totally secure with where you are on that particular team.” Although no one really knows his role yet on this team, Case said he would do whatever he could to help the Jayhawks. “We all just need to work together and figure out what it is going to take, as a team, for us to win,” Case said. “As far as an individual standpoint goes, I am going to do whatever coach asks of me and whatever is good for the team.” — Edited by Becca Evanhoe

AP Top 25

Kansas kept its paper-thin postseason hopes alive by defeating Kansas State on Saturday night. That victory, however, will mean little if the Jayhawks don’t follow it up with a victory tonight in their game against the Sooners. Junior outside hitter Megan Hill, who has come on strong in the past two weeks after replacing injured junior Jana Correa, said the Jayhawks had to win tonight to make the NCAA tournament. “It’s not really a question,” Hill said. “We don’t have any more matches that we can take for granted. I still believe that we have a chance.” Kansas has five matches left on its schedule. Last year’s team finished the Big 12 season with a 9-11 record and qualified for the NCAA tournament. Repeating that feat will be difficult this year, considering it has road matches against Texas A&M and Iowa State, as well as home tilts against Texas Tech and Missouri. Kansas (13-11, 5-10 Big 12) should be confident going into the match against Oklahoma. Not only have the Jayhawks ended their eightmatch losing streak, but they are facing a team that is 1-14 in Big 12 play and 6-18 overall. Still, Kansas volleyball coach Ray Bechard said that defeating Oklahoma would take the kind of concentration the Jayhawks displayed in Manhattan. “We have to move on from that match and focus on this one,” Bechard said. “Oklahoma’s record is a little bit deceiving.” The Sooners have struggled this season. They are four games away from

After their first victory in nine matches, the Jayhawks travel to Norman, Okla., tonight to face the Oklahoma Sooners. the 10th-place team in the loss column, and they have five matches left. Barring an impressive rally to close out the year, Oklahoma will finish last in the Big 12 for the second time in the past three seasons. On top of that, the Sooners have not defeated the Jayhawks since the 2001 season. Kansas has been 14-1 against Oklahoma since Bechard took over the program in 1998. That said, the Sooners pushed the Jayhawks to the limit in their previous meeting in September. At the time, Kansas was 9-1 and undefeated on its home floor, yet Oklahoma led 2-1 before dropping the last two frames and losing the match. Hill, who didn’t play in the Jayhawks’ victorious game against the Sooners in Lawrence, said she thought the match would be tough and the Sooners had the respect of her team. “We’ll definitely see a different team than we saw the last time,” Hill said. “We have to come out knowing that we’re going to win the match, no matter what it takes.” Bechard said he expected another tough road test. “It’s always a difficult situation on the road,” he said. “This match will be no different. They’ve had some problems, but they were tough last time we saw them.” Hill said she expected the victory against the Wildcats last weekend to be the one that got the Jayhawks rolling in the right direction. “I think it was exactly what we needed to pull our heads out of the water,” she said. “We know that we can do it. It’s not too late.” — Edited by Becca Evanhoe

hawks, Self said one of the most important things about tonight’s game would be to break the ice for the freshmen and get them loosened up. “I think getting guys some meaningful minutes in front of crowds where they can generate a little bit of confidence will be important,” Self said. He also said it would be good for his team to play against a different opponent. “Sometimes you get a false sense of who you are because you know the guys’ strengths and weaknesses,” Self said. “Against Fort Hays, these guys won’t know the opponents’ strengths and weaknesses, so we will have to play heads up and probably be made not to look so good at times because they will be throwing modes at them that they have never seen.” Notes: Redshirt anyone? Self said that as of right now, he didn’t think any of his players would take a redshirt for the season. A new NCAA rule, however, allows players to participate in exhibition games and still take a redshirt as long as they don’t play in a regular season game. “Not like we are going to do that,” Self said. “It is just the new rule.” — Edited by Alison Peterson

Newcomers take over, share point guard role
By Michael PhilliPs
Bonnie Henrickson needed to find a point guard capable of playing Big 12 Conference basketball when she came to Kansas. Instead of finding one, she found two. Freshman Ivana Catic and junior Shaquina Mosley played significant minutes at the position during Sunday’s 90-65 exhibition victory against Pittsburg State. “I liked what I saw,” said Henrickson, Kansas women’s basketball coach, “Those two kids handled the majority of the ball-handling responsibilities and had only two turnovers.” Catic was the only one of Kansas’ five freshmen to earn a spot in the starting lineup. She justified Henrickson’s decision just minutes into the game when she stole the ball and went the length of the court. “I was really focused on my game assignments,” Catic said. “That’s the style we want to play.” Henrickson said it was the first time she remembered allowing first-year players to call plays. “They’ve earned that opportunity practicing and right now have proven to be pretty good decision makers,” Henrickson said. The 90-point total was Kansas’ biggest in two years. When both players were in the game at the same time, Mosley moved to shooting guard. “You can tell right now Ivana is more of a true point guard,” Henrickson said. “It is nice to have the luxury of being able to play Shaq at both of those positions.” Last year, Mosley won the national Junior College/Community College Player of the Year award as a point guard, but had to adjust to playing a second position. After the game, she said she didn’t mind playing at the shoot-

Senior linebacker Nick Reid tackles Colorado sophomore Alvin Barnett during the game in Boulder, Colo., this season. Reid and the Jayhawks travel to Austin, Texas, this weekend to take on the No. 2 Longhorns. Reid is seeking redemption for a missed tackle that led to a last minute comeback by Texas during the game last year at Memorial Stadium.

Loss to Texas haunts Reid

By Ryan colaianni
Kansas certainly remembers what happened when it lost to Texas in the final seconds last season. Senior linebacker Nick Reid graphically remembers the 4th and 18, late in the fourth quarter, when he missed a tackle on Texas quarterback Vince Young. Missing that tackle let Young rush for the first down and keep the drive going, which led to the game-winning touchdown. “I think we all know what play stands out to me,” Reid said. “I have thought about this game probably 1,000 times since last year. It stings thinking about it right now. Luckily we have a chance this year to go down there and do something about it.” Kansas is using last year’s loss as motivation for this Saturday’s game in Austin, Texas. “We should have got them last year,” Reid said. “We are just going to go down there and do our

best and see what happens.” Reid and Young were talking to each other the entire game, but Reid said Young didn’t have anything to say to him after he broke the tackle. “After that play, he was so far down field he really couldn’t say anything to me,” Reid said. “He beat me pretty good.” The play nearly didn’t happen. If junior wide receiver Charles Gordon was not flagged for offensive pass interference, that completion would have given Kansas a first down and the Jayhawks could have run the clock out with a fresh set of downs. Mangino criticized the referees after the game for their offensive pass interference call against Gordon. Mangino implied that the referees were thinking about the Bowl Championship Series and gave Texas the call to help it get into the BCS. Mangino retracted his comments hours after the game but still received a $5,000 fine from the Big 12 Conference.

Young told reporters Monday in Austin he was upset about Mangino’s comments following Texas’ 27-23 victory. Mangino was surprised that Texas was using his comments for motivation. “If you are the best team in America and you are looking for motivation, maybe we have got a chance Saturday,” Mangino said. Extra Points: F Mangino announced that senior defensive end Charlton Keith was named defensive player of the week for Kansas. The offensive player of the week was senior running back Clark Green. Senior cornerback Ronnie Amadi was named special teams player of the week. F Gordon was also named a semifinalist for the 2005 Jim Thorpe Award, which is given annually to the nation’s top defensive back. — Edited by Alison Peterson

Junior guard Shaquina Mosley takes a shot over Pittsburg State junior center Maggie Apt during the first half. Mosley had 13 points and four assists during the 90-65 victory Sunday at Allen Fieldhouse. ing guard, because it allowed her to penetrate more, to make moves to the basket and to try to score. The results were mostly good, as she scored 13 points. Still, Henrickson would like Mosley to try to create more baskets. “I think we can get her to be a little more aggressive, but I think she is trying to run the offense right now,” Henrickson said. Both players seemed to be at ease with the play-calling system, yelling out instructions to their teammates and setting up plays. Henrickson said the next step was for the team to improve its defense. The team has worked on trapping opponents to create turnovers. Mosley will continue to split time between the two positions. “Bonnie probably sees something in me that I don’t,” Mosley said. — Edited by Jonathan Kealing
