Athlete uses poetry to get the word out
In his “The Pack,” 2003 Kansas
football defense T-shirt, Travis
Watkins confirms the proper camera
angle for his associate Gordon Brown
of Avalon Video, who is making a
DVD for the poet.
“OK, zoom in a little bit,” he asks
Brown zooms in closer, centering
Watkins in the view finder.
Watkins looks into the monitor and
smiles approvingly.
He’s now ready for his poetry per-
formance at the Hawk’s Nest in the
Kansas Union Saturday night.
At 6-foot-4, 270 pounds Watkins,
former Jayhawk defensive tackle, does
not look like a poet.
“I don’t know what a traditional
poet looks like,” he said. “I just know
who I am.”
And he is the 2005 College
Language Association national win-
ner for his poem titled “Brothers.”
Watkins began writing poetry in high
school. He loves the freedom that poet-
ry gives him to manipulate words and
word sounds, he said. He also likes to
use poetry to get his message out, which
includes speaking out against the war in
Iraq and commenting on social change.
“And children are murdered/ over
pronouns and verbs/ and towers are
toppled/ cuz mad-men ad-verbs/ to text
that are holy/ then terror occurs/ but if
you want to see truly/ the power of
words, then.../...Nigger! Spick! Kyke!
Faget!/ Does, that strike a nerve...”
— “My word”
Inspiring poet
It was after Watkins saw a perform-
ance by Dan Banks, another poet,
that he was inspired to focus on devel-
oping his own poetic style and voice.
His own blend of poetry that
speaks about political and social
issues are also about personal issues.
He wants to make his work avail-
able to everybody and help other up-
and-coming poets to be heard.
His poetry has also been profitable
— he has sold hundreds of CDs, mak-
ing thousands of dollars in CDs sales
and performances in the past year.
Saturday night was also a special
night for Krista Watkins, Travis’ mother.
It was the first time she had seen
her son perform his poetry.
“A lot of his poems have meaning
and it hits a nerve,” she said.
Balancing act
His success is not a surprise to Krista.
She remembers Watkins often stay-
ing up past his bedtime writing.
What surprised Krista was that her
son was graduating with honors,
receiving a degree in history and
African-American studies and moving
to Houston to become a third-grade
teacher in the fall.
“I thought he would do something
in sports or do something in the field
of art,” she said.

Fee upsets
A group of Urban Planning graduate students is
upset about a $16-per-person fee that the School
of Architecture and Urban Design charges for its
graduation luncheon. Participating graduates
must pay $16 for each person who attends the
luncheon, which includes a traditional hooding
ceremony for masters students.
Twelve students in the graduate program sent a
letter complaining about the cost and the four-per-
son ticket limit to John Gaunt, dean of architecture.
Gaunt, who has worked at the school for 11
years, said he had never received a complaint
about the luncheon. The traditional ceremonial
luncheon dates back at least 25 years, he said.
Michael Tedesco, one of the leaders for the
complaint and Spokane, Wash., master’s student,
said the fee was unnecessary. The ceremony for
his undergraduate class of 120 students at the
University of Idaho was free, and there was also
no limit to the number of family members and
friends who could attend the ceremony.
“I just dropped 30,000 bucks and I don’t get to
graduate for free,” he said. He later wrote in an e-
mail: “I’ve got three brothers, two parents, a wife
and a daughter; not to mention, extended family
members. Who do I leave behind?”
The ceremonial luncheon, which precedes the
University of Kansas’ commencement ceremony
and walking down the hill, is completely option-
al, Gaunt said.
Gaunt was unaware of the students who
anonymously sent him the letter, and he said it
Relay raises money to battle cancer
Megan Nelson is a survivor.
This year’s Relay for Life was
different for her from past years
she had participated. The
Garden City sophomore walked
to raise awareness for the dis-
ease she fought and beat less
than a year ago.
Cancer, she said, is a disease
that affects everybody in some
way. Nelson was diagnosed with
melanoma in July 2004.
Nelson and her father, who is
also a cancer survivor, walked
with about 15 other cancer sur-
vivors on the track at Memorial
Stadium on Friday for the third
annual University of Kansas
Relay for Life.
The event, which lasted from
6 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m.
Saturday, was a fundraiser for
the American Cancer Society.
About 70 teams, each with
about 10 members, raised about
$70,000, said Erin Adriance,
chairwoman of KU Relay for
Life. Another $9,000 was donat-
ed during the event, said
Adriance, Stilwell senior.
“This was definitely our
biggest year in terms of both
people and money,” she said.
In the previous two years,
about $55,000 was raised and
about 60 teams signed up,
Adriance said.
The money raised will help
fund cancer research at the
University and scholarships for
students who have cancer,
Adriance said.

’Hawks back in the hunt
Kansas coach Ritch Price has said
since the beginning of the Big 12
Conference season that the Kansas
baseball team was “one special
weekend” away from getting into the
thick of the race. Finally, he said, the
team found that weekend against
conference powerhouse Texas.
The Jayhawks won two of three
games against the Longhorns, stun-
ning the third-ranked team in the
nation on national television and
thrilling a school-record 4,633 base-
ball fans that packed Hoglund
Ballpark during the three days. The
series victory vaulted Kansas out of
the basement and into the middle of
the pack as the conference season
winds down.
Kansas (33-22, 8-12 Big 12) was
buoyed by solid starting pitching
and timely hitting all weekend.
Sophomore pitcher Sean Land set
the tone on Friday night in the
Jayhawks’ 5-2 victory. He pitched
five innings and allowed two runs,
only one of which was earned, and
held Texas (39-11, 14-9 Big 12) to
five hits while collecting four strike-
outs. He gave way to junior pitcher
Kodiak Quick.
Kansas took control of the game
in the bottom of the fifth inning.
With the score tied, 1-1, junior first
baseman Jared Schweitzer led off
with his fifth home run of the sea-
son. The blast extended his hitting
streak to 21 games, tying him with
Ryan Baty for the longest in school
history. The Jayhawks added to their
lead thanks to a defensive miscue by

Hearings revisit Scopes trial
TOPEKA — Echoing the famed
“Monkey Trial” of 80 years ago, three
days of public hearings about evolu-
tion culminated Saturday in sparring
between opposing attorneys.
A State Board of Education sub-
committee took testimony from critics
of evolution who hope students are
exposed to more criticism of the theo-
ry. The entire board expects to consid-
er changes this summer in standards
that determine how students are test-
ed on science statewide.
John Calvert, a retired Lake Quivira
attorney who helped found the
Intelligent Design Network and
organized the case against evolution,
called himself as his own last witness.
That led to questioning from Pedro
Irigonegaray, a Topeka attorney repre-
senting advocates of continuing a
state policy in which standards
describe evolution as a key concept
for students to learn.
Irigonegaray’s sharpest questions
came over the Board of Education’s
decision to allocate $5,000 to cover
lodging and some other expenses for
Calvert’s nearly two dozen witness-
When Irigonegaray asked whether
that money normally would have
gone to educate Kansas children,
Calvert replied, “I believe that was the
purpose of these hearings.”
Irigonegaray’s questions led to an
outburst from the audience, where a
spectator said he didn’t mind having
taxpayers pay for witnesses’ expenses
because the teaching of evolution is
an important issue. The man declined
to identify himself later.
Battles over evolution also have
occurred in Michigan, Ohio and
Pennsylvania in recent years. In
Kansas, scientists worry the board is
being pushed to include intelligent
design in the standards, though lan-
guage advocated by intelligent-design
advocates doesn’t mention it by name.
Calvert’s witnesses questioned evo-
lutionary theory that life originated
from a common source and that man
and apes have a common ancestor.
Intelligent design says some fea-
tures of the natural world are so com-
plex and well-ordered that they are
best explained by an intelligent cause.
Irigonegaray derided it as “creation-
ism in a new wrapper.”
Kansas school board members
sought to avoid comparisons between
their hearings and the 1925 Monkey
Trial in Dayton, Tenn., in which teacher
John Scopes was convicted of violating
a state law against teaching evolution.
In 1925, attorney Clarence Darrow,
representing Scopes, attempted to
make creationism look foolish. In mod-
ern-day Kansas, evolution is on trial.
Irigonegaray is scheduled to present
evolution defenders’ case Thursday,
but he doesn’t plan to call witnesses.
State and national science groups are
boycotting the hearings, viewing them
as rigged against evolution because the
three presiding board members are part
of a conservative majority receptive to
criticism of evolution.
Calvert’s witnesses argued that evo-
lution, as typically taught, promotes
atheism. Calvert argued that exclud-
ing other ideas from the classroom
favored a nontheistic religion — creat-
ing constitutional problems.
“It’s deeply wrong,” said Bruce
Glymour, who teaches about the phi-
losophy of science at Kansas State
University. “This isn’t science. It’s pol-

Slow Ride opens, bikers take it easy
About 1 p.m. Saturday, a
biker on a black and chrome
Harley-Davidson pulls into the
northbound lane of Third
Street. He waves his arm to the
herd of bikers behind him in the
parking lot of Slow Ride
Roadhouse Bar & Grill, 1350 N.
3rd St.
“C’mon, let’s go!” He yells as
a traffic jam builds up on his
The herd answers his call and
flows two or three at a time into
the street and drives away to its
next destination.
Welcome to Slow Ride, what
co-owner Janet Dight describes
as a place built for bikers by bik-
“There really isn’t a full-
fledged biker bar out here,”
Dight, 2000 doctoral graduate,
said. “There are a number of
biker-friendly bars around the
Kansas City area — Colby’s,
Frankie D’s — but there isn’t
one in Lawrence.”
“Biker-friendly” means that
places have biker nights or wel-
comes bikers, Dight said.
“We say we’re not just biker-
friendly, we’re biker-dedicated,”
she said.
The bar and grill, which
opened April 23, got its name
from the ’70s rock song “Slow
Ride” by Foghat and a biker
contest with the same name.
“You try to race your motor-
cycle as slow as you can,” Dight
said. “If you put your feet down
or fall over you lose. So it’s a
place to slow down.”
The interior of the bar and
grill looks like it was molded
from a Harley-Davidson motor-
cycle: The booths, chairs and
stools are made of black and
orange vinyl seating.
Chrome is the material of
choice for the ceiling and Slow
Ride logo is etched in steel
above the bar, which has a black
On the jukebox a rotation of
Johnny Cash, Lynyrd Skynyrd
and Guns ‘N’ Roses play as peo-
ple sip their drinks or eat what
Dight calls “traditional road-
house food” such as Philly
cheesesteak sandwiches,
mashed potatoes and meatloaf.
Slow Ride also provides live
music every weekend. Classic
rock, Southern rock, blues and
country acts will be the primary
music played, Dight said.
Motorcycle-only parking is
expected to be put in on the east
side of the building in a couple
weeks, Maggie Del Campo, co-
owner of Slow Ride, said.
The biker crowd is the most
interesting aspect of working at
Slow Ride, April Del Campo,
bartender and Lawrence junior,
“People have a misconcep-
tion of bikers,” she said.
“They’re a really nice crowd.”

Woman receives 20 years for
macabre life insurance scam
GEORGETOWN, Texas — Molly Daniels spent
weeks surfing the Internet, gathering information
for a bizarre and grisly plot of deception.
She learned how to burn a human body, sought
clues on ways to deceive arson investigators, and
took steps to create a new identity for her husband.
Daniels then dug up a woman’s corpse,
staged a fiery car accident to fake her husband’s
death, and had him re-emerge as her new
boyfriend. Authorities say it was all to collect a
$110,000 life insurance policy while hiding her
husband, Clayton Daniels, from the cops.
Daniels pleaded guilty this past week to felony
charges of insurance fraud and hindering appre-
hension, and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

themselves and to be blind when
it came to looking at the color of
their skin.
And even if she wasn’t always
able to be there, she always want-
ed her children to be themselves.
When Watkins was in grade
school he performed in a school
recital, which his mother was
unable to attend. Krista was upset
she wasn’t able to make it. When
she got home she pulled out a
video camera and had Watkins
reperform his part of the recital.
She said she was happy to
share that moment with him.

Shaping the future
Watkins kept writing on into
college, with encouragement
from his coaches, teammates
and his wife, Brandi, whom he
married last May. Not only did
his poetry improve, but he also
improved his grades.
On top of graduating this
spring with honors, Watkins start-
ed his own production company,
Layman Lyric, which he used to
produce his CD and soon DVD.
He is looking forward to grad-
uation and to his future with his
wife. His plans to move to
Houston to become an elemen-
tary school teacher, he said,
were because he thought the key
to social equality was education.
He felt that he could make a dif-
ference as a teacher.
Watkins’ CDs will be avail-
able at Hastings Books Music &
Videos, 1900 W. 23rd St., May
15 and on his Web site www.lay- He is also cur-
rently working on a book of his

I’m sorry, were they not going to tell the schol hall kids
that they were going to have to trench their way across
Louisiana Street?

I just convinced my TA that she has ADD. That was my
only accomplishment this semester.

It’s Cinco De Mayo and everyone is at the bars. Nobody
is having parties tonight which
means that an underage kid like me
has no way to get drunk. This sucks

To the guy who drives the black
Mitsubishi 3000 GT and just turned
right by Eaton Hall: Nice car, want to
go out this weekend?

I saw a bus hit a student and knock
him over, but then I noticed the guy
was wearing Uggs, so I didn’t care
as much.

Vatican passes on opportunity to move
into 21st century with backward pope
Vince Myers’ recent column, "Don't Expect
Catholic pope to advocate liberal ideals,"
seemed to represent more of Myers’ personal
vendetta against liberals than it did the facts.
The pope is a religious, as well as political
leader of the Vatican.
As Myer’s rightfully states, the pope is not a
leader of a secular nation; however, does that
necessarily then mean that the leader of such a
theocratic state cannot move towards a more
progressive system of human rights?
Although delegates from the Vatican cannot
vote in the United Nations General Assembly,
the Vatican’s influence in global issues has
increased over recent years having been grant-
ed status as a “permanent observer” in the U.N.
In 1948, the United Nations adopted the
“Universal Declaration of Human Rights”.
The first article of the aforementioned doc-
trine states the following:
“All human beings are born free and equal in
dignity and rights. They are endowed with rea-
son and conscience and should act towards one
another in a spirit of brotherhood.”
The first article of the U.N. was passed for
good reason: To protect the world from past
If the Vatican wishes to participate further in
global issues, it should become more attune to
the statues of the organization of which they sin-
cerely want to participate. Remarks made by the
newly instilled pope before he was elected to
the papacy is certainly a cause for concern: his
remarks attack minorities, in and outside of the
catholic church (divorced couples, gays), as well
as members of other religions, which clearly
impedes and mutilates the rights of individuals
throughout the world. For a religion that holds
the beauty and value of human life with such
high regard, the pinnacle of its corporeal hierar-
chy seems to be sending mixed messages of its
true intentions.

Community still deserves to be aware
of presence of known child molester
Wednesday’s editorial regarding Leroy
Hendricks’ move to Lawrence missed a few
points. As most KU students are probably not
parents, this is forgivable, but the record should
be corrected.
The editorial expressed the belief that
Hendricks has served his time and therefor
should be left alone. Yet, Hendricks has no right
to privacy. He is a convicted felon. He does not
have the right to vote. He does not have the
right to own a gun. So why should he be
awarded the right to privacy?
The editorial did not mention that not only
does the state want to move Hendricks to
Lawrence, but he will live at an undisclosed
address. That’s right, Hendricks could be your
next door neighbor. Wouldn’t you like to know
his address before you choose which apartment
to live in next fall, or invite your little brother or
sister to visit?
The state is putting the privacy of a convicted
felon above the protection of childern. Living at
an undisclosed address may protect Hendricks
from harassment, but at what cost? By protect-
ing Hendricks, we sacrifice the safety of inno-
cent children.

“Crikey! Look over there,
mates, it’s the elusive
maleus sexus — one of the
most confusing animals of
the lot. Be real careful, now,
‘cause this little fella’s not
too bright, and he’ll run
right back into the under-
brush if you advance too
quickly. Now, what I’m
going to do is be real slow and easy and try to
coax this little guy into our cage here … Blimey,
he’s spotted us, and there he goes … I would
chase him for a bit, but that’d scare him even
more. Naw, it’s best just to wait for a bit and
hope he’ll come back.” — what Steve Irwin, the
Crocodile Hunter, might say
Sorry Steve, but chances of him coming back
are slim to none. Once you scare off the elusive
maleus sexus, he’s probably gone for good, unless
he just wants to eat you.
Of course I’m talking about the male sex, and
the cage symbolizes the relationships many
women — by women I mean college-aged girls —
try to have with them. In fact, journalist Dave
Barry composed an entire book based around the
piece of advice to “never assume a guy under-
stands he has a relationship with you.” Just like
when you tell a dog it has fleas, there is no scien-
tific way it will ever register in his brain.
If you ever look at a Cosmopolitan or
Glamour, there will inevitably be at least one arti-
cle on “How to Figure out Your Man,” or “His
Bedtime Body Language.”
Not that those aren’t interesting to read, but I
guarantee that when you open a Maxim there
won’t be any “How to De-Code Her Shaving
Habits”-type articles. I actually enjoy Maxim
more than Cosmo, mostly because I don’t care
about clothes too expensive for me to buy, and
since I don’t plan on being married for another 10
years, I don’t care about how to find “The One” in
12 easy steps.
I find it relatively humorous that there is so
much literature, advice columns and television
shows aimed at women trying to figure out guys,
and few aimed at males trying to understand
women. Why is that, do you suppose?
Is it most men prefer to get all
their advice on women from
their local priest, all men
already have women completely
figured out or men pretty much
know they will never figure
women out and correctly
assume that watching television
or playing X-box is a better
waste of time?
Not that I have any problem with 18 and 19
year-olds in love; I have several friends well on
their way to the altar. They have my full support,
especially in 10 years when they’re heading to
divorce court.
The thing I find ridiculous is those few girls that
desperately want to find a special someone, then
head out to the bars wearing practically porno
attire, and after spending a romantic, intimate
evening with “the perfect guy” are actually offend-
ed and upset when he doesn’t ever call.
Forget “He’s Just Not That Into You,” these girls
need to buy the book, “He’s Just Into Getting
Why should we take the tips advised in fashion
magazines anyway? I find it hard to believe that
“The Ten Things He Looks For in A Girlfriend”
applies to every different type of man out there,
and if you try to refine your pickup moves or
change how coy your smile is, aren’t you compro-
mising yourself anyway?
Screw the rules and act however un-feminine or
stupid you want. Flirt with guys in whatever way
you want and don’t feel obligated to compete in
the “Who Can Make Their Boobs Look Biggest”
competition — not that it isn’t fun to do for kicks
When you dress up and lather on the makeup,
make sure you’re doing it for you and not to see
how many guys you can get to stare at your ass —
not that that isn’t fun to do for kicks sometimes
Come on ladies, grab that stick shift and drive.
Tune in next semester for the exclusive guy-reveal-
ing article: “Why His Brand of Laundry Detergent
Can Predict His Future with You.”
✦McLeod is an Overland Park freshman studying
journalism and majoring in French.
It’s been a month and the
student body still does not
know why its dean of students
was fired.
In a press release April 8, the
University said only that
someone filed a formal com-
plaint against Richard
Johnson and upon completion
of an investigation the
University fired Johnson.
University Relations said the firing was a “per-
sonnel issue” and that it would not provide more
details. An Open Records Act request for the
complaint was rejected April 18, and questioning
University Relations has gone nowhere.
Clearly, the administration has no plans to pro-
vide any context for Johnson’s firing. This is a
mistake. Students and the
University community have a
right to know, and the
University should provide a rea-
son without having to be asked.
Dean of students is not only a
high profile position. The dean is
charged with knowing students,
interacting with students and
providing a resource for students.
Johnson was close to numerous
students, especially student lead-
ers because of his position as
adviser to Student Senate.
Based on the open records
request rejection the Kansan received, it was clear
the complaint against Johnson involved a student.
Lynn Bretz, director of University Relations,
said the main reasons for the University’s silence
was because it was abiding by state law and
respecting the privacy of those involved.
Ben Eggleston, philosophy professor specializ-
ing in ethics, said there could be reasons the
University shouldn’t have to disclose grounds for
firing employees. Privacy allows the administra-
tion to discharge employees without fear of being
castigated by the media.
But that is precisely why
administrators should disclose
their reasons. If the reasons
were valid, no one would
question them. If illegal activi-
ty was suspected — especially
illegal activity involving a stu-
dent — then students should
know what was considered
unprofessional behavior.
And, ethically speaking, the University should
provide an explanation if the lack of disclosure is
being used to shield people who are accountable,
Eggleston said.
Moreover, by not giving any explanation, admin-
istrators are allowing speculation to become the
“truth.” Stories are circulating among students,
especially those involved in
Student Senate, about Johnson
drinking with students But
speculative stories aren’t fact.
By not commenting on these
rumors, the University is
allowing gossip to be the only
story told.
The University community
deserves an answer. The name
of the student who filed need
not and should not be revealed.
The community deserves to
know the nature of the com-
plaint. It might be an intrusion
in Johnson’s privacy, but the interest of students
merits a contextual explanation of Johnson’s firing.
Telling the truth would foster trust between stu-
dents and the administration while continued
secrecy would breed distrust and suspicion.
Much like parents who answer “why?” with
“because,” an administration that responds to ques-
tions without answers is loathed, not respected.

the Longhorns. Junior center
fielder Matt Baty lifted a fly ball
that Texas sophomore left fielder
Carson Kainer lost in the sun.
That twist of fate led to two
more runs for the Jayhawks, giv-
ing them a 4-1 lead that they
would not relinquish.
Land earned his fifth victory of
the season, and Texas sopho-
more right-hander Kyle
McCulloch took the loss. Junior
closer Don Czyz earned the save.
“I felt the better than I’ve ever
felt in my whole life,” Land said.
“I had a little extra juice on my
fastball, and I just felt awesome.”
Land thanked the Kansas
offense for its clutch hitting.
“It was huge,” Land said of
the run support. “It gives you so
much confidence on the mound
when you’ve got a lead.”
Saturday’s game was a pitch-
er’s duel all the way through.
Senior Mike Zagurski turned in
one of his best outings of the sea-
son as he shut down Texas hitters
in 7 1/3 innings of work. He
allowed just one unearned run
and struck out six Longhorns en
route to a 2-1 Jayhawk victory.
He needed every ounce of that
effort, however, as Texas sopho-
more Randy Boone was nearly as
impressive. Boone gave up two
runs in 7 1/3 innings but ended up
on the short end, taking the loss.
After Texas grabbed an early
lead, Kansas responded behind
one of the usual suspects. With
two out in the fourth inning,
Schweitzer hit his second homer
in as many games and evened
the score, 1-1. That hit broke the
Kansas hitting streak record.
In the sixth, freshman third
baseman Erik Morrison broke
the deadlock with a RBI single,
scoring senior catcher Sean
The Jayhawks would have to
wait until Sunday morning,
however, to finish the job.
Thunderstorms halted the pro-
ceedings in the bottom of the
eighth inning, and the game was
picked up at 11 a.m. yesterday.
Czyz closed out the Longhorns,
once play resumed, for his 10th
save of the season and second of
the weekend. He was aided by a
spectacular catch in center field
by Baty that saved at least one
runs in the ninth inning.
“That’s one of the best catches
I’ve seen with the game on the
line,” Price said.
Czyz was not surprised that
the ball ended up in Baty’s glove.
“I had a feeling in my chest that
he was going to catch that ball,”
Czyz said. “It was kind of a sigh of
relief when he did catch it.”
Zagurski was thrilled with his
dominating performance.
“I felt great,” Zagurski said. “I
was able to get a lot of first-pitch
strikes and keep them off balance.
I don’t think they were as com-
fortable as they would have liked.”
After a half-hour break, Texas
looked determined to salvage the
final game of the series. They
opened the scoring in the first
inning on a home run by senior
shortstop Seth Johnston. They
held a 2-0 lead in the second
when Morrison drove in two runs
with a single and tied the game.
Texas regained the lead, 4-2,
only to see the Jayhawks fight
back one more time in the fifth
inning. Richardson and
Schweitzer set the table with a
walk and a single, respectively.
For Schweitzer, it extended the
hitting streak to 23 games.
Senior designated hitter Andy
Scholl brought both men home
with a double to left-center field.
That was the last time Kansas
would be close. Texas exploded
for six runs in the sixth inning
and blew the game wide open,
eventually winning 16-5 in eight
innings because of the Big 12’s
travel day run rule. Eight of nine
Longhorn batters had at least
one hit in the game.
Senior reliever Clayton
Stewart got the win and
improved his record to 9-0 this
season. Freshman Tyson Corley
took the loss in relief of Quick
and fell to 1-1.
Despite the final game, Price
was excited for his team and the
“It was a disappointing way to
end the weekend, but our goal
was to win the weekend,” Price
said. “I was really pleased with
how competitive we were.”
He said the pitching was a big
part of the success against a
team like Texas.
“Sean Land was good Friday
night, and he allowed us to get
to Quick and then close with
Czyz,” Price said. “Mike
Zagurski was absolutely fabu-
lous. Today, Kodiak Quick’s tied
when he leaves the ball game
after helping us win Friday
Kansas moved up three spots
in the conference standings dur-
ing the weekend and is tied for
sixth place with Texas Tech.

Rapscallions win intramural championship
At Lawrence High School,
Josh Lawrence tried to work the
word “rapscallion” into every
article he wrote for the school
He should like this one.
Lawrence’s team, The
Rapscallions, outlasted 17 other
teams to take the intramural 4-
on-4 flag football championship
Saturday evening with a 39-26
victory over Beta Black.
Beta Black, consisting of
members of Beta Theta Pi, never
made the game close.
The action started at 11 a.m.
Saturday. By 6 p.m., only four
teams remained. Beta Black
knocked off J.R.’s Bail
Bondsmen 41-20, then the
Rapscallions crushed Extreme
41-18 to punch their ticket to
the title game.
With a thunderstorm loom-
ing, the teams hurried into the
championship game.
Beta Black won the coin toss,
and chose to play with the wind
in the second half.
With the wind and the ball,
the Rapscallions wasted no time
going to work.
Facing a third and final
down on their opening drive,
quarterback James Lawrence
threw a pass to Jamie Huston,
Lawrence freshman, for the
“Our receivers are so good
that I just threw it to them and
they caught it,” Lawrence,
Lawrence freshman, said.
Huston turned around and
contributed defensively. With
pressure being applied to the
quarterback, Huston intercept-
ed a wild pass.
The next drive was more of
the same for the Rapscallions.
This time the touchdown pass
went to Jacob Rahmeier,
Lawrence freshman.
The teams took different
defensive strategies.
The Rapscallions played
man-to-man with the three
receivers while the fourth man
blitzed the quarterback. Beta
Black kept all four defenders
back in a zone.
“Our first game, the team
decided to blitz us and we just
got by them and got the first
down every time,” quarterback
James Lawrence said.
As halftime approached, the
teams provided more theatrics.
Beta Black took the ball with 20
seconds remaining.
Quarterback Chris Hermreck,
Ottawa junior, scrambled to the
sideline, where he saw Rhodes
Kelley, St. Louis freshman,
Kelley towed the sideline
while making the catch, which
brought the team within seven
points of the lead.
Six seconds later, however,
Huston responded with his sec-
ond touchdown catch of the
game, also on a pass that went
the length of the field.
Coming out of halftime,
James Lawrence intercepted the
ball after the quarterback was
forced to throw while scram-
bling. The Rapscallions’ next
touchdown put the team up 33-
13 with just minutes remaining
in the game.
The next three possessions
resulted in touchdowns as
well, and the Rapscallions ran
out the clock in style, using a
play with three laterals to
elude tacklers.
Josh Lawrence has a different
idea for next year’s tournament.
“If this were tackle football,
we still would have dominated,”
he said.
Winning the championship
next year would also be yet
another occasion to see “rap-
scallion” in the paper.

Never, in his three seasons at
Kansas, has the team had such
a big weekend.
These guys can play with
anyone in the country, and if
they continue to be as hot as
they are right now, they could
make significant damage in the
Big 12 Tournament.
This weekend has made
qualifying for the Big 12 tourna-
ment much more likely; the
expectations are certainly much
higher now.
If this team stumbles down
the stretch — and after this
weekend’s performance that
appears unlikely — it would be
a huge disappointment.
The Jayhawks need to stay
focused, as they will play the
Missouri Tigers next weekend,
and Mizzou has had a great sea-
son thus far.
Texas is not the same team
that is was a year ago, when it
finished second in the College
World Series.
But the exposure that this
weekend brought to Hoglund
Ballpark will have much bigger

out the country watch the

Price has done a terrific job
with this club and has kept
them focused all season. Even
when the Jayhawks were strug-
gling in their first few confer-
ence series.
Price was still able to keep
the team going in the right
direction. Now the team is win-
ning when it needs the victories
✦Colaianni is a McLean, Va.,
sophomore in journalism and
political science.
With the sweep, the
Jayhawks have their seventh 30-
victory season during coach
Tracy Bunge’s nine-year tenure,
going 30-20 overall and 9-8 in
the conference.
“We took care of business
this weekend,” Bunge said.
On Saturday, the Kansas
offense exploded with 16 hits, a
season high. Junior shortstop
Destiny Frankenstein led the
offense with four hits on
Saturday. She said everyone saw
the zone and attacked at the
plate. Kansas trailed Iowa State
2-0 after the first inning. ISU first
baseman Jessica Quade put the
Cyclones on the board early with
a two-run home run.
Freshman pitcher Christina
Ross started for the Jayhawks,
allowing five hits and one walk
but striking out two in 2.1
innings. Junior pitcher Serena
Settlemier finished the game in
relief and allowed no walks.
She allowed five hits, but struck
out five, picking up the victory.
Yesterday, Kansas fell behind
Iowa State early in the game as
well. The Cyclones scored two
runs in the first inning, but
Frankenstein ignited the offense
in the second inning with a solo
home run that pulled the
Jayhawks within one. Kansas tied
the game later that inning when
junior third baseman Nettie
Fierros scored. The Jayhawks
scored runs in the fourth and fifth
inning to secure the victory.
Ross earned the victory for
the Jayhawks, throwing 4.1
innings, allowing two runs and
five hits and striking out two.
Settlemier relieved Ross to fin-
ish the game. She got the next
eight batters out and helped
Kansas win its 30th game. She
allowed no hits and no runs
while striking out three.
Bunge said the offense
picked up the pitching staff this
weekend. She said the pitchers
were not as sharp as they had
been and needed to be more
aggressive in the tournament.
Kansas bounced back both
games after trailing. Bunge said
her team knew it was never out of
a ball game. This weekend, the
players jumped back quickly, so
they weren’t pressing, she said.
The next destination for the
team is Oklahoma City for the
Big 12 Conference Tournament.
The Jayhawks will be the No. 6
seed in the tournament, avoid-
ing the play-in game. The first
game is scheduled for May 12 at
11 a.m. against the No. 3 seed,
Texas. Kansas lost to Texas ear-
lier this season, 4-1.
Frankenstein said the team
would keep the same approach
heading into the tournament, and
the players knew they could
defeat anyone in the conference.

4-on-4 flag football championship
Thestudent newspaper of theUniversity of Kansas the student perspective
In a span of four minutes, 25
seconds, the team scored four
unanswered points. Jackson and
Joe Nickels led the charge with a
string of back-and-forth catches
while moving downfield. Toward
the end of the run, the team’s
communication was so good it
looked like they were executing
a rehearsed pattern each time
down field. On defense, the
team adjusted their strategy
depending on the wind.
“We played a zone defense
upwind, and went man-to-man
downwind,” Nickels, Elgin, Ill.
junior, said. “And we kept the
tall guys in the back.”
The strategy paid off, and the
Pinkies rarely saw a scoring
opportunity. With six minutes
to play in the opening half, the
Pinkies began to chip away at
the six-point deficit. They put
up two points before the Blunts
On the Blunts’ next trip
downfield they had the disc in
the corner, just a few yards
away from the touchdown.
Instead of trying to throw it
in against the Pinkies’
defense, they used a series of
four passes to gradually move
the disc to the other side of
the field, each time moving
closer to the line, until they
had the touchdown.
Going into halftime, the
Blunts enjoyed a commanding
8-2 lead. The Pinkies looked
sharp coming out of the break,
but were unable to turn their
opportunities into points. For
the first six minutes of the half,
the Blunts were unable to
advance the disc past midfield.
Despite these opportunities,
the Pinkies did not score until
9:15 into the half. From there,
the teams played a fairly even
back-and-forth game for the
remaining time. While it was a
tightly contested game, it lacked
the structure of a league game.
“It’s a lot more relaxed out
here,” Nickels said, “There
aren’t a lot of calls made.”
With just two seconds remain-
ing, the Pinkies found them-
selves down 11-5, and had the
disc in their own end zone.
Instead of ending the game,
they chose to call time-out and
set up the long pass.
It worked, and fans of both
teams cheered the final score as
time ran out.
The teams exchanged friend-
ly handshakes after the game,
and joked about the outcome.
It may not have been a league
game, but the Fighting Blunts
came out in midseason form to
claim the championship.

hammers Destroyers
Two scholarship halls took
the CoRec ultimate Frisbee
championship with a dominat-
ing performance that ended
with a shutout.
Pearson/Douthart scholar-
ship halls defeated the
Destroyers 13-0 last night at the
Shenk Complex, 23rd and Iowa
“We had played against them
before,” Pearson’s Shawn
Atkinson, Hutchinson junior,
said, “So we knew what to
expect coming in.”
After scoring on the opening
possession, Pearson/Douthart
intercepted a pass right on the
goal line, then passed the disc in
for score number two.
The whole team helped out
with the scoring.
Four different players caught
four of the first five touch-
Jason Mitchell caught two of
those and threw another.
“We go for the home runs a
little bit more than other teams,”
Mitchell, Independence junior,
He said the team knew it
would win the game after the
first five points.
Pearson/Douthart didn’t let
up for the remainder of the half.
It went into the break with an
11-0 advantage.
The team scored in every con-
ceivable fashion. Mitchell found
Michaela Sakumura, Lawrence
freshman, for the ninth point on
a short pass.
But the team’s preferred
method of scoring seemed to be
the long, floating throw from
On defense, the team rarely
started in poor field position
because of interceptions and
knocked-down passes.
It was a bigger surprise when
the team was unable to score
than when it did.
Also contributing to the first-
half scoring were Matt Unger,
St. Louis senior, and Jesse
Newell, Emporia junior.
The second half moved slow-
er, with the scholarship hall
team controlling the ball on its
half of the field.
Every time the Destroyers
had an opportunity, they tried a
long pass with the hope of scor-
ing their first point.
Despite a few close calls, the
team was never able to land a
pass in the end zone, and it fin-
ished the game scoreless.
Atkinson passed it to
Mitchell, his roommate, for the
team’s 13th and final point.

Once you achieve your first objective,
you’ll be ready for another. You’re
overflowing with creativity this year.
Start by making a list.
✦ Aries (March 21-April 19) Today is a 5.
Don’t waste your newfound wealth
burn on flashy toys or parties. Pay back
a debt and be a philanthropist instead.
✦ Taurus (April 20-May 20) Today is a 7.
You should be feeling confident, and
with very good reason. Go ahead; let
your recent success go to your head.
✦ Gemini (May 21-June 21) Today is a 6.
The more you’ve cleaned up, complet-
ed, finished and finalized, the more
powerful you will become.
Procrastination slows you down, so
drop that nasty habit.
✦ Cancer (June 22-July 22) Today is a 7.
The glow hasn’t really worn off yet,
and this is a good thing. You’ll have to
get back into the routine, but it’s easier
✦ Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Today is a 7. This
is not a good day to resist authority.
You’d be much wiser to simply listen
and take copious notes.
✦ Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Today is an
8. Better have pictures to show to
your friends, they’ll never believe
your stories. Use what you've gath-
ered to help you achieve the next
career objective.
✦ Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Today is a 7.
You’re stashing away goodies for your
future, and that’s all very wise. Keep
enough out for a treat. Acknowledge
yourself for a job well done.
✦ Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Today is a 7.
Figure out what you and your partner
need next. That’s the first step. Once
that’s done, it’ll be time for the two of
you to go shopping.
✦ Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Today is a
6. As you do your careful planning,
consider other options. Give away
more of the stuff on your own lists.
✦ Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Today is a
7. You’ll have to get back to work, but
the glow may not leave you for a
while. Luckily, there’s nothing that
requires haste; proceed at your leisure.
✦ Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Today is a 6.
You’re an intellectual, but you can
appreciate a little bit of luxury. Make
your nest more comfortable. You’ll do
even better work.
✦ Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Today is a 7.
The sweet sensation of mastery is
within your grasp. Do what you love,
over and over and over and over again.

Junior first baseman Jared Schweitzer celebrates with junior center fielder Matt Baty
and junior left fielder A.J. Van Slyke after scoring a run during the fifth inning yesterday at
Hoglund Ballpark. Schweitzer singled in the inning to extend his school-record hitting
streak to 23 games. Kansas won the series against Texas 2-1.
sets record for
hitting streak
As Kansas (33-22, 8-12 Big 12
Conference) was winning its series
against No. 3 Texas (39-11, 14-9 Big 12)
this weekend, one Jayhawk had a partic-
ularly successful weekend.
Junior first baseman
Jared Schweitzer
slugged home runs in
games one and two to
first tie and then to set a
Kansas hitting streak
record. In game three,
Schweitzer extended his
record to 23 games.
“It’s an amazing
streak. I don’t think he’s
had a cheap hit in the 23
games,” coach Ritch Price said. “He’s had
a solid base hit in every ball game. He’s a
very good offensive player.”
Ryan Baty, who graduated last spring
after a four-year career as a Jayhawk, pre-
viously held the record. Matt Tribble,
another 2004 graduate, held the record
in 2003 with a 20 game streak.
Baty, older brother of junior outfielder
Matt Baty, set the record at 21 games last
season. In the final 21 games of 2004,
Ryan Baty came up with a hit. Because of
that, Baty said his streak never technical-
ly ended, but he was still happy for
“Jared’s a great player and a good
friend,” Ryan Baty said. “He’s a great and
natural, pure hitter. He deserves it.”
Entering the weekend, Schweitzer
needed a hit in the first two games to
break the record. His solo shot in game
one, along with a 2-4 effort in game two
made him the new record holder. A 2-3
game three makes Schweitzer’s streak
that much more impressive.
Tying the streak with a single in his first
at-bat in game one, Schweitzer broke the
record in his second at-bat of game two
with his sixth homer of the season.
“What’s odd is when Tribble broke the
hit streak record, when I broke the hit
streak record and now Jared, the game
that we did it was all on home runs,”
Baty said. “Isn’t that wild?”
Schweitzer, who continues to claim
that the secret to the streak lies in the
power of his uncut hair, said that break-
ing the streak against Texas made the
milestone a little sweeter.
Although hit streaks and records are
prestigious, Baty said that they were made
to be broken, and he is happy that his was.
He said the improvement of the program is
more important than individual records.
“If they’re not breaking records in this
program — the records I set and the
records in the past — that means our
program isn’t taking that next step,” Baty
Although his streak marks the third
time the record has been broken in as
many years, Schweitzer said he realized
the difficulty in what he is accomplishing.
“Tribble and Baty are two good hitters,
so I don’t think it makes it any less spe-
cial. It’s nice,” Schweitzer said.
Schweitzer said the series victory
against Texas was much more important
than what he accomplished individually.
“I’d take wins over Texas any day,”
Schweitzer said. “If someone would’ve
told me that I would go 0-for the week-
end but we would’ve taken two of three
from Texas, I would’ve taken it easily.”
As one of the weekend’s offensive
leaders, Schweitzer’s 5-11 effort this
weekend helped propel the Jayhawks 2-1
series victory, their first against the
Longhorns since 1996.
Baty is rooting for both the Jayhawks
and Schweitzer, as he said he expected
the streak to hold out.
“I bet he finishes out the rest of the
year with it,” Baty said. “I think he’s see-
ing the ball that well right now. We need
it. If we’re going to make the regional we
need Jared to be hot the rest of the year.”

The Kansas softball team swept
Iowa State this weekend, moving the
Jayhawks up to No. 6 in the Big 12
Conference standings. Kansas won 9-
4 Saturday and 4-2 yesterday at the
Southwest Athletic Complex in
Ames, Iowa.
Kansas victory makes tournament berth likely
Is there a hotter team in Big
12 Conference baseball than the
Kansas Jayhawks? After this
weekend’s series victory against
the Texas Longhorns, the
Jayhawks are 8-12 in the confer-
ence and have won nine of their
last 11.
The Jayhawks showed the
nation this weekend that there’s
a new team to consider when
mentioning the strong teams in
the conference.
More importantly, the
Jayhawks have won their past
two series in the conference and
are playing the type of baseball
needed to be successful in this
The victory this weekend
aided their goal to qualify for
the Big 12 Tournament.
With two conference series
left to go, the Jayhawks are red
Texas is a top-10 team, and
though the Jayhawks’ powerful
bats have led the way all year, it
was pitching during the week-
end that helped Kansas top
Sophomore Sean Land was
spectacular on Friday, as he
went five innings and gave up
just one earned run.
The team’s pitching and
defense have been problems this
season, but in the first two games
of the series, the pitching was
phenomenal as Kansas allowed
just three runs in two games.
Coach Ritch Price’s decision to
bring in Sunday starter Kodiak
Quick on Friday night in relief
was a great decision.
It was clear that Price simply
wanted to get a victory on Friday,
and with the team’s best pitcher
on the mound, it gave him a great
opportunity to defeat a strong
Texas team. Quick pitched two
perfect innings. Price’s risky deci-
sion paid off, and Quick still
pitched yesterday.
Despite being routed yester-
day afternoon, the Jayhawks
should still look at this weekend
as the highlight of the season
and probably the highlight of
Price’s tenure here at Kansas.
