Housing and dining costs for

on-campus residents may increase
by an average of 2.5 percent next
school year.
At its meeting on Nov. 14 and
15, the Kansas Board of Regents
will review the proposal submit-
ted by the Department of Student
Housing that outlines the increase,
which will affect students at all on-
campus living locations, including
residence and scholarship halls,
Jayhawker Towers, Stouffer Place
Apartments and the Sunflower
House. The increases differ by
location and room type.
Diana Robertson, director of
student housing, said the high-
er costs are a result of expected
increases in operating expenses.
“Each year, we take a look at
what the rates for the following
year are going to need to be,”
Robertson said. “With utilities, for
example, we’re expecting a four to
six percent increase in costs. That
makes up a significant amount
of our budget, so we have to plan
Income from housing and
dining fees is used for operating
costs, including utilities, person-
nel, maintenance products and any
debt from building renovations.
“We’re an auxiliary service, so
we operate only off of the income
we take in from the room rates and
rent rates,” Robertson said.
As part of an annual process,
the department of student housing
proposed the rates to the Student
Housing Advisory Board, which
is composed of faculty, staff and
presidents from each of the four
government-housing groups.
Students on the board took the
proposal to their respective orga-
nizations for further review by stu-
dents. Then, the board met again
to vote on these rates.
“We did all of that in September
and October, and then we for-
warded those rates to the Board of
Regents for approval,” Robertson
Kristen Hays, a sophomore
from Waterville, is planning her
living situation for next fall. Hays,
a resident in a scholarship hall,
is debating whether to continue
living on campus, and she is con-
sidering Jayhawker Towers.
Hays said cost is a major aspect
when choosing a living space, but
she does not think the increase in
housing and dining rates is enough
to affect her decision.
A two-person apartment at
Jayhawker Towers cost $5,400 for
the 2012-2013 school year, and
the Blue Basic dining plan costs
$2,860, according to the University
contract rates. If the Kansas Board
of Regents approves the 2013-2014
proposal, the apartment would
cost about $5,540 and dining
about $2,930, for a total increase
of about $200.
“I don’t think the increase is
enough to make me rethink that
because, in the grand scheme of
things, it’s a year, and it’s about
$200,” she said. “I don’t think $200
is a big deal.”
Melanie Lux, a freshman from
St. Joseph, Mo., thinks the increase
would be problematic for some
“I see it as a big deal because I’m
from another state, and I pay out-
of-state costs,” Lux said. “I think it
will make it harder for out-of-state
Lux, who currently lives in
Lewis Hall, is planning on living in
The Connection apartments next
fall. She said it would cost about
the same as living in the residence
“I think I’ll like it better,” Lux
said. “I think KU costs are fair for
the most part, but it is going to cost
me about the same.”
Robertson said even with the
increase, University housing and
dining rates would still be below
rates of other Big 12 schools. She
said this is a commitment the
University has made through the
“We try to keep the buildings in
great condition and balance that
with keeping costs as low as we can
for students,” Robertson said.

KU Endowment offers loans
When Shawnee junior Julia
Urban was in a pinch for book
money, she considered selling her
plasma or signing up for a clinical
drug trial.
Urban thought the financial aid
she applied for and received at the
beginning of the semester would
be enough with her part-time job,
but it wasn’t. And she had maxed
out her student loans.
Urban was in difficult finan-
cial straits, and turned to KU
Endowment for help.
“I had planned in advance and
I found myself in completely dif-
ferent circumstances,” Urban said.
“You never know how long you’ll
have your part-time job, or how
many hours you’ll get or when
your schedule might change for
After being turned down for
student loans through private
lenders, Urban was approved for
$2,500 within 24 hours for a KU
Endowment student loan.
Endowment is a private, non-
profit fundraising organization. It
relies mostly on donations from
alumni and University supporters.
The loan program began in 1931
by Frederick Speh, in memory of
his son, a student who died in a
car accident.
“For nearly as long as KU
Endowment has existed, private
gifts have benefitted students in a
myriad of ways, including our loan
program, said Dale Seuferling,
Endowment president.
And when Urban needed her
loan in 2008, the year of the Great
Recession, so did 2,626 other stu-
dents. That year, KUE disbursed
$5.2 million in loan dollars, a
record amount.
“The economy seems to be
an important variable in loan
demand,” said Lisa Scheller,
Endowment spokeswoman.
Endowment student loans
peaked in the recession years
of 2008-2010 and have since
decreased. University financial aid
officers encourage students to seek
federal student loans before apply-
ing for Endowment loans because
the federal loans offer more favor-
able terms.
Endowment had a 44 percent
increase in loan disbursements
from fiscal years 2008 through
2010, said Scheller. Since then,
the number of new applicants and
loans disbursed have decreased,
with a combined $5.1 million dis-
bursed in fiscal years 2011 and
2012 after peaking in 2009 at 2,627
new loans and $5.2 million.
Aside from the economy,
said Brenda Maigaard, Assistant
Vice Provost of Financial Aid
& Scholarships, the decrease in
the number of Endowment loans
issued is a result of Graduate
PLUS loans, made available in
2006-2007 to post-secondary stu-
dents. Graduate PLUS loans do
not cap out like Endowment loans
and allow graduate students to
borrow up to the full net cost of
attendance. In fiscal year 2011,
University graduate students
borrowed about $3.8 million in
Graduate PLUS loans, accord-
ing to the Office of Institutional
Research and Planning.
Endowment loans are avail-
able for students on all of the
University’s campuses, with a
fixed rate of 5 percent, lower than
the 7.8 percent average for private
loans, according to the Consumer
Financial Protection Bureau.
Repayment doesn’t have to be
made until after graduation, but
Urban said because hers was classi-
fied as an emergency loan, she had
to pay it back within six months,
and found herself defaulting.
“I take most of the burden of
responsibility,” Urban said. “I was
so blinded by needing the money
and just doing whatever I needed
to do to stay in school, but I do
recommend it if you are going to
be responsible.”
Urban paid the loan off this
summer and works a full-time job.
She said now she keeps her student
loans organized on a spreadsheet,
because lenders did not reach out
to her after she had moved.
“I really don’t know what I
would’ve done if KU didn’t have
the option to get loans through
them,” Urban said. “I would have
probably started selling every-
thing, so I was really fortunate
I didn’t have to do anything too

“i think we all know that there’s a risk that’s going to
happen, but when it happens, the student body gets really
upset, because as students, we feel that we sometimes have
the right to underage drink. so when they come and tell us
that we can’t do it, it creates an uproar that makes you think
twice about the consequences, but even then, i don’t think it
will make that big of a difference.”

“i feel like the police are pretty lax in a college town
because they understand that those things are going to
happen. i know in the beginning of the year, they came down
hard to set an example, but overall, for them to charge
students for selling to minors and for minors having, i
would think they did it to set an example. i’ve never heard it
happening before, so i feel like they did it to prevent other

Police arrest 20 at
Halloween party
Police targeted Halloween house par-
ties on Friday, oct. 26, issuing nearly 30
criminal violations and busting a party
where liquor was sold to minors.
The Fake iD 101 Taskforce aims to
enforce underage drinking laws. The
majority of the citations were issued at a
house party in the oread Neighborhood,
which includes four charges of operating
as an open saloon and social hosting,
according to a press release. more than
200 people attended, and several kegs
of beer along with $800 in proceeds from
alcohol sales were seized.
“it was being operated like a business
without a liquor license,” said sgt. Trent
mcKinley, a lawrence Police spokesman.
The grant-funded Taskforce is com-
prised of offcers from the Kansas Al-
coholic Beverage control, KU offce of
Public safety, Douglas county sheriff’s
offce and the lawrence Police Depart-
ment. For the past two semesters, it has
focused on unlawful social hosting, or
the allowance of individuals under 21 to
consume alcohol on your property. it is
the frst time the Taskforce issued open
saloon charges. if convicted, the misde-
meanor charge is punishable by a fne
of no more than $500, and imprisonment
for no more than 90 days. A social host-
ing conviction is punishable of a fne no
less than $1,000.
Twenty-nine criminal violations were
issued to 20 individuals during the night
of enforcement: 11 for possession of al-
cohol by a minor, nine for possession of
an open container or consuming liquor
in public, four for unlawful hosting of
minors or social hosting, four for open
saloon and one for possession or use of
a fake or other person’s identifcation.

DES MOINES, Iowa — Two
days from judgment by the voters,
President Barack Obama and Mitt
Romney raced across competitive
battleground states on Sunday,
stressing differences on the econ-
omy, health care and more while
professing a willingness to work
across party lines to end gridlock
in Washington.
“You have the power,” Obama,
the most powerful political lead-
er in the world, told thousands
of cheering supporters in New
Hampshire as the race moved
toward a close finish.
Boos from Romney’s partisans
in Cleveland turned to apprecia-
tive laughter when the Republican
nominee began a sentence by say-
ing, “If the president were to be
elected,” and ended it with, “It’s
possible but not likely.”
After a campaign than began
more than a year ago, late public
opinion polls were unpredictably
tight for the nationwide popular
vote. But they suggested an advan-
tage for the president in the state-
by-state competition for electoral
votes that will settle the contest.
Conceding nothing, Romney
set his first foray of the fall into
Pennsylvania. The state last voted
for a Republican presidential can-
didate in 1988, but the challenger
and his allies began advertising
heavily in the campaign’s final
In Des Moines, he said he would
meet regularly with “good men and
women on both sides of the aisle”
in Congress. Later, in Cleveland, he
said of Obama, “Instead of bridg-
ing the divide, he’s made it wider.”
Obama had New Hampshire,
Florida, Ohio and Colorado in his
sights for the day, and judging from
the polls, a slight wind at his back.
So much so that one conservative
group cited a string of surveys that
favor the president as it emailed
an urgent plea for late-campaign
donations so it could end his time
in the White House.
In New Hampshire, the presi-
dent said he wants to work across
party lines, but said he won’t give
up priorities such as college finan-
cial aid or the health care law he
pushed through Congress.
The two rivals and their running
mates flew from state to state as
the last of an estimated 1 million
campaign commercials were airing
in a costly attempt to influence a
diminishing pool of voters.
More than 27 million ballots
have been cast in 34 states and
the District of Columbia, although
none will be counted until Election
Day on Tuesday.
Obama and Romney disagree
sharply about the approach the
nation should take to the slow-
growth economy and high unem-
ployment, and the differences have
helped define the campaign. Most
notably, Romney wants to extend
tax cuts that are due to expire with-
out exception, while Obama wants
to allow them to expire on incomes
over $250,000.
At the same time, polls show
bipartisanship is popular, in the
abstract, at least, which accounts
for the emphasis the candidates are
placing in the race’s final days on
working across political aisles.
Obama’s term has been littered
with the legislative wreckage left
behind by constant struggles with
congressional Republicans. Yet his
trip to New Jersey last Wednesday
was a model of nonpartisanship as
he accompanied Republican Gov.
Chris Christie on a tour of destruc-
tion caused by Superstorm Sandy.
The governor repeatedly praised
the administration’s response to the

Muslim student group
hosts awareness events
The Muslim Student Association
wants to teach others about Muslims
and the Islamic faith through its Islam
Awareness Week on campus. The group
will host events throughout the week.
“The purpose is to educate people on
Islam and Muslims,” said Iesha Kincaid,
president of the Muslim Student Associa-
tion. “There are a lot of stereotypes and
misconceptions out there, so we hope to
show what Islam is really about and get
rid of some of those stereotypes and mis-
Kincaid said some of the misconcep-
tions of Islam make people think it is noth-
ing more than terrorism, oppression among
women, disliking America and the Prophet
Muhammad portrayed as a war lord.
The Muslim Student Association has an
informational booth in the Kansas Union
lobby every day this week from 10 a.m. to
4 p.m. Each day will feature a different
themed table.
The two main events are “The Truth
About Controversy” a lecture by Dr.
Sabeel Ahmed on Wednesday at 7 to
9 p.m. in Woodruff Auditorium of the
Kansas Union and the documentary on
the life of the Prophet Muhammad on
Friday at 4:30 p.m. in the Big 12 room.

CAIRO — Egypt’s ancient
Coptic Christian Church named
a new pope on Sunday to spiritu-
ally guide the community through
a time when many fear for their
future with the rise of Islamists to
power and deteriorating security
after last year’s uprising.
The death earlier this year of
Pope Shenouda III, a familiar fig-
ure who led the church for 40 years,
heightened the sense of insecurity
felt by many Egyptian Christians.
They will now look to Bishop
Tawadros, who will be ordained
Nov. 18 as Pope Tawadros II, to fill
the void in leadership.
Tawadros, 60, was chosen in an
elaborate Mass where a blindfolded
boy drew the name of the next
patriarch from a crystal chalice.
“The situation for us in Egypt is
not stable,” said 27-year-old Peter
Nasser, a volunteer at the Mass.
“We hope the incoming pope will
make our problems known to the
outside world,” he added, voicing
hopes that Tawadros will also raise
the profile of Christians in this
Copts, estimated at about 10
percent of the country’s 83 mil-
lion people, have long complained
of discrimination by the Muslim
majority state. Under both the old
regime and the new Islamist leader-
ship, violent clashes with Muslims
have occasionally broken out, often
sparked by church construction,
land disputes or Muslim-Christian
love affairs.
The new pope will face tre-
mendous challenges in navigating
Egypt’s changing political realities,
where Islamists are now domi-
nant and the liberal and secular
groups behind last year’s uprising
are struggling. At the center of the
political squabbling is the role of
Islam in the new constitution, cur-
rently being drafted.

nationalists marched through
Moscow on Sunday chanting
slogans such as “Russia for the

hurricane sandy victims
NeW YoRk — For the victims of super-
storm sandy, it was a sorely needed mes-
sage delivered.
From “Livin’ on a Prayer” to “The Living
Proof,” every song Friday at NBC’s beneft
concert became a message song.
The hourlong event, hosted by Matt
Lauer, was heavy on stars and lyrics iden-
tifed with New Jersey and the New York
metropolitan area, which took the brunt
of this week’s deadly storm. The telethon
was a mix of music, storm footage and
calls for donations from Jon stewart, Tina
Fey, Whoopi Goldberg and others.
The show ended, as it only could, with
Bruce springsteen and the e street Band,
tearing into “Land of Hope and Dreams.”
“God bless New York,” springsteen,
New Jersey’s ageless native son, said in
conclusion. “God bless the Jersey shore.”

Te news hit the Internet with
all the force of a proton torpedo ex-
ploding in the Death Star’s thermal
exhaust port.
Not only was George Lucas of-
cially retiring from flmmaking, he
was also selling his Lucasflm media
empire to Disney, giving Emperor
Mickey clearance to green-light at
least three new “Star Wars” flms
based on Lucas’s long-rumored,
of-denied outlines for a sequel tril-
ogy taking place afer the events of
“Return of the Jedi.” In fact, Disney
executives are already eyeing a 2015
release date for what’s now being
billed as “Episode VII.”
Public reaction has been sharply
divided since the $4.05 billion deal,
which encompasses control of In-
dustrial Light & Magic, Skywalker
Sound and all future theme park op-
tions, was announced last Tuesday.
One side sees the news as wholly
positive, a chance for the franchise to
redeem itself afer the prequel trilogy
failed to meet the messianic expecta-
tions of older fans, many of whom
still shudder at the mention of Jake
Lloyd or, Yoda forbid, Jar Jar Binks.
Others fear the deal will cost “Star
Wars” its identity as a transcultural
touchstone, making the beloved and
enormously infuential series just
another rebranded cog in Disney’s
ruthless corporate machinery.
Personally, I see the deal as a
welcome changing of the guard. As
franchise caretaker, Lucas has been
keeping “Star Wars” in metaphori-
cal carbonite for far too long. Over
the last 15 years, he and his fans have
engaged in a tumultuous love-hate
relationship that eerily mirrors the
redemptive arc of Darth Vader, the
former knight turned intergalactic
scourge who ultimately fnds salva-
tion when confronted by a new gen-
Afer the prequels, Lucas went
from a celebrated vanguard of inde-
pendent cinema and the architect of
childhood dreams to the dark lord
of green screen, a controlling techno
freak who shunned collaborators,
marginalized actors and compul-
sively tinkered with his classic tril-
ogy, cranking out endless “Special
Editions” while pointedly refusing
to release the unaltered originals on
a worthy format. Just ask the average
fan how he or she feels about Greedo
shooting frst or Vader’s cringe-
worthy outburst during the formerly
wordless, note-perfect climax of
“Return of the Jedi.”
Disney, on the other hand, has
embraced a surprisingly hands-of
approach when dealing with its
newly absorbed partners. Marvel
Studios, which Disney acquired in
2009, operates largely outside the
Mouse House’s sphere of infuence, a
business model that recently paid of
in spades with the extraordinary box
ofce success of “Te Avengers.”
Although Disney ofcially bought
Pixar in 2006, great pains were taken
to ensure the Emeryville, Calif.-based
animation studio remained a sepa-
rate entity, free from the compulsory
sequels and creative meddling that
had soured company relations dur-
ing the Michael Eisner years. Hope-
fully, Lucasflm president Kathleen
Kennedy will be granted similar au-
tonomy now that she’s managing the
“Star Wars” brand for Disney.
All corporate blather aside, the
prospect of a “Star Wars” trilogy
emancipated from Lucas’s miserly
stewardship is rife with potential. In
a statement released last week, Lucas
himself expressed interest in passing
the torch to younger flmmakers,
relegating himself to the role of “cre-
ative consultant,” a post far removed
from the director’s chair or screen-
writer’s table. Tis is ideal, because
despite his weakness for dialogue
and disdain for non-pixilated per-
formers, George Lucas remains one
of the industry’s great idea men.
I just hope the new writers and di-
rectors can reconcile their respect for
the franchise with a willingness to
push it further in the storytelling de-
partment. Irvin Kershner’s “Te Em-
pire Strikes Back,” widely regarded
as the saga’s high-water mark, found
a precise balance between spectacle
and substance, creating a lived-in
universe inhabited by believably
fawed, humanely written charac-
ters. Someone like Brad Bird (“Te
Incredibles”), Neil Blomkamp (“Dis-
trict 9”) or Rian Johnson (“Looper”)
would ft the bill nicely.
For the frst time since 1999, the
future of “Star Wars” looks bright
and secure, with expectations large
enough to fll the Great Pit of Cark-
oon. Even fans who aren’t fully con-
vinced should take comfort from the
words of Obi-Wan Kenobi: “You’ve
taken your frst step into a larger

NEW YORK — The weekend box office
was not only undeterred by the aftermath of
Superstorm Sandy, it was buoyed by it.
Disney’s “Wreck-It Ralph” opened strong-
ly with $49.1 million and Robert Zemeckis’
“Flight,” starring Denzel Washington, soared
to a $25 million debut. Both opened above
expectations, capitalizing on East Coast audi-
ences looking for distraction amid the recov-
ery from the storm.
“Wreck-It Ralph,” a 3-D animated family
film about a video game villain who tries to
break free of his role, is the largest box-office
opening ever for Walt Disney Animation,
which has produced countless cartoon clas-
sics (though doesn’t include Disney’s lucrative
Pixar Animation).
Though the hurricane had forced the clo-
sure of hundreds of movie theaters in the New
York, New Jersey area, most were open for
business by the weekend. As many as 100 the-
aters were still closed on Friday, but many of
those were restored during the weekend.
“We didn’t really have a playbook for this,”
said Hollywood.com box office analyst Paul
Dergarabedian. “But the numbers show that
audiences across the country, and particularly
in the Northeast, wanted to go to the movies
and they did.”
With many East Coast children out of school
on Friday, Disney saw an uptick of business for
Friday matinees to the well-reviewed “Wreck-
It Ralph.”
“’Wreck-It Ralph’ became something of a
distraction and an opportunity for families to
do something separate of the storm,” said Dave
Hollis, Disney’s head of distribution. “Schools
being shut down on Friday also played a role
as parents were looking for things to entertain
the kids and keep them out of the cold.”
Paramount’s “Flight,” which had a smaller
opening — 1,884 theaters, or about half the
number of “Wreck-It Ralph” — might have
been expected to be more harmed by Sandy,
considering adult dramas generally depend
heavily on the New York City market. But the
film, which has found critical raves and Oscar
buzz, proved particularly enticing to moviego-
ers, many of whom were surely pulled in by
the star power of Washington, who plays an
airline pilot of both heroic skill and debilitat-
ing alcoholism.
“When you look up his filmography — it
doesn’t matter whether it was yesterday or
20 years ago — Denzel opens movies,” said
Paramount distribution head Don Harris.
Harris said the studio counted only about
15 theaters lost to “Flight” due to power out-
Aside from the draw of Washington, “Flight”
is also the first live-action film in 12 years for
Zemeckis. The director, whose films include
the “Back to the Future” trilogy and “Cast
Away,” had spent the last decade on perfor-
mance-capture animated films like “The Polar
Express” and “A Christmas Carol.” Harris
called the return “spectacular” and said: “It’s
almost like: Where have you been?”
Ben Affleck’s Iran hostage tale “Argo,” in
its fourth week of release, expanded to 2,774
theaters. The Warner Bros. film added $10.2
million, bringing its cumulative gross to $75.9
million — a healthy haul for a film expected to
be in the thick of the Oscar hunt.
The Universal kung fu flick “The Man With
the Iron Fists,” directed by RZA of the hip hop
group Wu-Tang Clan, opened with a debut of
$8.2 million.
Overseas, the James Bond film “Skyfall”
continued to dominate. It took in $156 million
over the weekend bringing its international
total to $287 million. The film opens in North
America on Friday.
The strong box-office weekend — up 21
percent from the same weekend last year —
bodes well for Hollywood ahead of the arrival
of “Skyfall” and the upcoming holiday movie

SAN DIEGO _ Under a gray
sky, not far from San Diego’s
Balboa Park, actor Gary Sinise is
getting ready to strap on his bass
guitar and play before a crowd of
more than 2,000 people.
It’s the last day of a recent
weeklong celebration for the fifth
anniversary of the Comprehensive
Combat and Complex Casualty
Care (C-5) program at the Naval
Medical Center San Diego for the
war wounded. Members of the
Cirque du Soleil Street Team are
performing. There are balloons,
face painting and rock climbing
for kids, plus barbecue from Food
Network star Robert Irvine.
Before he takes the stage, Sinise,
better known as Det. Mac Taylor
on CBS’ long-running “CSI: NY,”
but best known in this crowd
as Lt. Dan from his 1994 role in
“Forrest Gump,” bats away a recent
suggestion by Newt Gingrich that
he would make a good secretary
of the Department of Veterans
Affairs if Mitt Romney were elect-
ed president.
“Government, that’s not my
thing,” Sinise tells a reporter. “I
get more done doing what I’m
What he’s been doing is playing
40 to 50 concerts a year as leader
of the Lt. Dan Band at military
bases and other sites in the U.S.
and abroad, sometimes as part of
a USO tour, sometimes teamed
with the Stephen Siller Tunnel
to Towers Foundation to raise
funds to build “smart homes” for
the most severely wounded, and
sometimes as part of his own
Gary Sinise Foundation’s efforts
to raise public awareness about
the accomplishments and needs
of American military personnel
and their families.
He’s also the spokesman for
the Disabled American Veterans
organization, has done recruit-
ing commercials for the Army
and Army Reserve as well as a
public service announcement for
the Marine Corps, and is a leader
in the drive to build a monument
in Washington, D.C., to America’s
war wounded. The monument is
set to be dedicated next year.
“I want it so our congresspeo-
ple can look out the window and
be reminded of the cost of war,”
Sinise says.
For his efforts, Sinise has been
awarded the Presidential Citizens
Medal by President George W.
Bush and been declared an hon-
orary Navy chief petty officer and
a USO Goodwill Ambassador for
his native state of Illinois.
“Gary is the Bob Hope for this
generation of combat warriors,”
says Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., a
retired Army lieutenant colonel.
“I play bass guitar,” Sinise says
with a laugh that betrays his dis-
comfort with praise when West’s
comment is mentioned. “I didn’t
know that Bob Hope played bass,
did he?”
Sinise’s concern for veterans
predates “Forrest Gump” by more
than a decade, back to his days
with the Steppenwolf Theatre
Company, which he founded with
two friends. He was so moved by
a play about the plight of Vietnam
veterans and their anger at being
discarded by an uncaring public
that he looked for ways to become
That experience led to his
continuing involvement with
the Disabled American Veterans
Still, it was Lt. Dan that pro-
pelled Sinise into greater activ-
ism. He jumped at the role, in part
because “Forrest Gump” provided
a positive portrayal of Vietnam
veterans; Lt. Dan lost both legs
in combat and journeys from
despair and anger to optimism
and hope.
“A lot of people say they care
about the troops,” says Popaditch.
“But with Gary, you know he
means it. He backs it up with

he legal idea
that you own
completely after you
buy it is known as
“first sale” and the
person who sold it
to you can’t tell you
what you can do
with it, even if they
copyrighted part of
it. Well, the Supreme
Court heard arguments in
a case last week that might
reshape the whole concept
of first sale in America.
While the case Kirtsaeng v.
John Wiley & Sons is about
textbooks, the groups who
hope to gain most from
this case and the termina-
tion of first sale are the
music and movie industry.
The music and movie
industry really wants to be
able to extend its copyright
protection. So much that
these groups spent $122
million lobbying Congress
for increased copyright
legislation, according to
the Center for Responsive
Politics. And of course,
the industry portrays
themselves as “protecting
the artists.” But really, we
know its for the money. If
first sale is altered in their
direction, it would open
up a “secondary” market
to many industries, a new
market covering products
that you thought you pur-
chased and own.
Already, most of the
music and movies you
think you bought from
places like iTunes, you only
technically licensed from
the rights holder.
This means the rights
holders can tell you things
like who you’re allowed to
share your music with, or if
you can share your music.
If first sale is terminated,
these companies could
limit your rights to things
you actually purchased,
like physical items. Say you
wanted to sell or give away
a DVD you bought three
years ago, these companies
could tell you the price you
had to sell it for, and sue
you if you gave it away.
Obviously, for anyone
who buys or rents music
and movies, this doesn’t
sound too pleasing. And
for good reason: If you
bought something, you
should own it and be able
to do whatever you want.
The music and movies
industries attempt to limit
the rights to our purchases
is the same fight these
companies had when the
radio was invented, and
when people copied and
traded vinyl records. So
what have people been
doing when the industry
has started to crack down?
Just pirating even more
than ever.
Look at “Game of
Thrones.” HBO limits
online viewing to people
who own both a cable and
HBO subscription,
which many people
can’t afford. And what
happened? With such
limited legal access,
“Game of Thrones”
Season 2 was the
most pirated TV
show of all time, with
25 million copies tor-
rented, according to
The industry spends
too much time limiting
the consumers rights, and
trying to punish piraters.
Instead, why don’t they
attempt to increase con-
sumer access, and decrease
piracy as result. If iTunes
offered me full ownership
of the music they “sell,” I’d
probably still buy music
from iTunes, and not rent
music from Spotify for
much less. If HBO would
be willing to let people
watch “Game of Thrones”
online for $3 an episode,
maybe 25 million people
wouldn’t need to steal it.
So seriously entertain-
ment industry, limiting
not only the number of
people who can buy your
products, but also the
rights they have to your
products, is not going to
make you more money.
It’s going to make a lot of
upset people who will be
willing to pirate your prod-
ucts because they don’t like
you. So how about you be
decent people, and increase
access to your products

And if you’re
still undecided on
who you should select
to be your presidential
pick, let me give
you a breakdown of
why I believe Barack
Obama deserves,
not just the majority
of Americans’, but
college students’ votes in
This has been President
Obama’s largest initiative
during his presidency, and
it works to completely
revamp our former
inefficient and limited
health care system. A
few of the major changes
are individuals can stay
on their parents’ health
insurance until the age of
26, you cannot be denied
insurance coverage because
of a pre-existing condition
and sex-discriminatory
policies are no longer legal.
Obama has done a lot to
allow students to be able
to afford an education.
President Obama made
it so federal loans are
distributed by direct
lending only — meaning
fees paid to private banks
that act as a middle man
are cut out. These savings
in fees have also made
possible, after the 2012-
2013 academic year, for
Pell Grants to increase
along with the inflation
rate, rather than staying
at a fixed rate — meaning
more aid that doesn’t need
to be paid back possible.
Finally, after the summer
of 2014, students will be
able to cap their repayment
of loans at 10 percent
of their income above
basic living requirements,
rather than the previous
15 percent, so after
graduation, you’re not
going broke trying to repay
President Obama
inherited a recession from
economic policies during
the Bush administration.
It’s definitely been a rough
past couple of years for
a lot of U.S. citizens,
especially in terms of
trying to keep a job, much
less trying to get hired
straight out of college.
But without the
efforts the president
has made, it would
have been a hell of a
lot worse.
Obama created
more private sector
jobs in 2010 than the
Bush administration
did in eight years
— that’s pretty
significant, right? Then
in a simple comparison
of rhetoric — Romney’s
economic rhetoric has
focused on cutting
spending — cutting
funding for Amtrak,
the Public Broadcasting
Service, the National
Endowment for the
Arts and the National
Endowment for the
Humanities, a freeze on
federal hiring and an end
of the Affordable Health
Care Act, which cuts
spending and cuts jobs.
Obama has said he will
create jobs by creating a
public works job program,
provide aid to hire more
and pay teachers better,
explore natural gas
exploration and expand
medical professional jobs

Health Care Act, which

hy should
you consider
for Mitt Romney
tomorrow? Take a
quick look at the facts.
Then ask yourself the
essential question: Is the
country better or worse
today than four years
The true indicator of
real employment, the labor
participation rate, is at its
lowest point in 30 years.
There are 10 million people
that have been forced to
go on food stamps in the
past four years. Al-Qaida
has still not been defeated,
but its influence is growing
across the Middle East. Not
only have we not made a
dent in our national debt,
we’ve tripled it. All we have
to show for the past four
years is a health care bill
that will actually exacerbate
the problem it was
designed to solve – don’t
worry though, Obama
plans to raise taxes on the
rich and entrepreneurs to
pay for it. Are we better
off? The answer is a very
deafening, “No!”
Romney’s presidency
would address the biggest
issue right now, how to
get our economy out from
underneath the bloated,
inefficient government and
get people back to work
by growing the private
sector. He knows what it
takes to grow business;
out of the two presidential
candidates, he’s the only
one who has ever had a job.
Sorry, community activists.
This country has
definite problems; we
have millions out of work,
defense issues abroad and
a sputtering economy
at home. Romney’s best
quality is personified in his
trademark smirk. He is an
optimist – even, perhaps
a little sly and cocky. But
that’s what the country
needs right now. We need
someone who openly loves
America – and who is a bit
cocky about it – and will
do whatever he can
to make it stronger.
Of the two men
who will likely
become President,
one of them is the
challenger, the other

like he is. President

aving money
is difficult.
Extremely dif-
ficult. It’s just so simple
to mindlessly swipe
your debit card to get
yet another Jimmy
John’s sandwich. Sure,
everyone’s heard the
typical ways to save
money by clipping
coupons and making
a budget. But by these
unconventional ways, you
can save money without
having to be boring.
Your friends invite you
to go to Jefferson’s, but
you don’t because you
can’t afford it. It happens
to the best of us. This
time, accept the invita-
tion. When the bill comes
around, have a really dis-
appointed expression and
say, “Man, I forgot my wal-
let. Can anyone spot me
this time?” It works like a
charm. Except when they
ask for you to pay them
back or they catch on to
your plan. The only down-
side to this is you’ll prob-
ably look like a mooch and
may lose a few friends.
Next time you hit up
the Underground, load up
your backpack with the
free stuff that comes with
your meal. They never
put a limit on it, right?
Grab some ketchup, salt,
mayo, napkins, soy sauce.
Anything that’s there,
grab it. Some places like
McDonald’s have gotten
smart and charge 25 cents
per sweet and sour sauce
packet. Know which places
are free, and take advan-
tage of it.
Instead of buying a bag
of pretzels, why not take
advantage of the samples
at Wal-Mart or other
grocery stores? The only
tricky part is finding ways
to get multiple samples to
get an actual snack por-
tion. Find ways to distract
them. Even just tell the
attendant that you’re a
broke college student. If it’s
a sweet, elderly lady, she
may feel sympathy for you
and give you more than
one. Sometimes, you’ll
get lucky with stores like
Target having samples just
sitting out by the deli sec-
tion. Grab all you want.
If you just simply search
online for free samples,
you can come up with free
hair care products, soap,
toothpaste and more. If
you do that often enough,
you may very rarely
have to buy actual
products. Ship
to your parent’s
address also and
have them keep the
second helping of
samples until you
go home next. Not
only does it save a
lot of money, but
it saves you from getting
your lazy self out of bed to
go to the store.
The only bad thing
with this is you’ll probably
become less social and
more into Netflix. Once I
got the free month trial of
Netflix, I stayed cooped up
in my room during sum-
mer break just watching
“Breaking Bad.” You could
even use your parent’s
email address for another
free trial. Once you run
out of email addresses,
there’s usually a friend who
doesn’t mind you watching
their Netflix every once in
a while.
Now that you know
five more cheapskate
tricks, think of your own.

ference between stealing
and taking advantage of
the system. A very fine

NEW YORK — Shivering victims
of Superstorm Sandy went to church
Sunday to pray for deliverance as
cold weather settling in across the
New York metropolitan region —
and another powerful storm forecast
for the middle of the week — added
to their misfortunes and deepened
the gloom.
With overnight temperatures
sinking into the 30s and hundreds
of thousands of homes and busi-
nesses still without electricity six
days afer Sandy howled through,
people slept in layers of clothes, and
New York City ofcials handed out
blankets and urged victims to go to
overnight shelters or daytime warm-
ing centers.
At the same time, government
leaders began to grapple with a
daunting longer-term problem:
where to fnd housing for the tens of
thousands of people whose homes
could be uninhabitable for weeks or
months because of a combination of
storm damage and cold weather.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg said
30,000 to 40,000 New Yorkers may
need to be relocated — a monu-
mental task in a city where housing
is scarce and expensive — though he
said that number will probably drop
to 20,000 within a couple of weeks
as power is restored in more places.
In a heavily fooded Staten Island
neighborhood, Sara Zavala spent
the night under two blankets and
layers of clothing because the power
was out. She had a propane heater
but turned it on for only a couple
of hours in the morning. She did
not want to sleep with it running at

line in an assault that killed more
than 100 people in 10 states, gaso-
line shortages persisted across the
region, though odd-even rationing
got under way in northern New Jer-
sey in an echo of the gas crisis of the
1970s. Nearly 1 million homes and
businesses were still without power
in New Jersey, and about 650,000 in
New York City, its northern suburbs
and Long Island.
With more subways running
and most city schools reopening
on Monday, large swaths of the city
were getting back to something
resembling normal. But the week
could bring new challenges, namely
an Election Day without power in
hundreds of polling places, and
a nor’easter expected to hit by
Wednesday, with the potential for
55 mph gusts and more beach ero-
sion, fooding and rain.
“Prepare for more outages,” said
National Weather Service meteo-
rologist Joe Pollina. “Stay indoors.
Stock up again.”
“Well, the frst storm fooded me
out, and my landlord tells me there’s

Churchgoers packed the pews
Sunday in parkas, scarves and boots
and looked for solace in faith.
At the chilly Church of St. Rose in
Belmar, N.J., its streets still slippery
with foul-smelling mud, Roman
Catholic Bishop David O’Connell
said he had no good answer for why
God would allow such destruction.
But he assured parishioners: “Tere’s
more good, and there’s more joy,
and there’s more happiness in life
than there is the opposite. And it
will be back.”
In the heart of the Staten Island
disaster zone, the Rev. Steve Mar-
tino of Movement Church headed
a volunteer efort that had scores of
people delivering supplies in gro-
cery carts and cleaning out ruined
homes. Around midday, the work
stopped, and volunteer and victim
alike bowed their heads in prayer.

toothbrushes, batteries, sweatshirts
and other supplies on Staten Island.
Tousands of other athletes from
around the world ran anyway inside
Central Park, where a little more
than four laps around it amounted
to a marathon. “A lot of people just
want to fnish what they’ve started,”
said Lance Svendsen, organizer of a
group called Run Anyway.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said New
York state is facing “a massive, mas-
sive housing problem” for those
whose neighborhoods or buildings
are in such bad shape that they won’t
have power for weeks or months.
“I don’t know that anybody has
ever taken this number of people
and found housing for them over-
night,” Bloomberg said. “We don’t
have a lot of empty housing in this
city,” he added. “We’re not going
to let anybody go sleeping in the
streets. ... But it’s a challenge, and
we’re working on it.”

However, he will get a second
chance when the Jayhawks take on
Washburn in their fnal exhibition
game of the season tonight at 7
p.m. in Allen Fieldhouse.
“Jef doesn’t play as well against
small guys; he never has, histori-
cally,” Kansas coach Bill Self said.
“He’s always played better against
big guys.”
Washburn will trot out a bigger
lineup in 6-foot-8 Bobby Chap-
man and 6-foot-9 Joseph Smith.
With that pair, the Ichabods will
likely try to work the ball down
low more ofen than Emporia
State, which only scored 14 points
in the paint and attempted 26
More action in the paint means
more opportunities for Withey, the
2011-12 Big 12 leader in blocks, to
send an opponent’s shot attempt
spiraling back down to the foor.
More time in the game will
also mean more opportunities for
Withey to show of his jump-hook
that he’s been working on with as-
sistant coach Norm Roberts. He
wants the shot to be a focal point
of his ofensive game this year.
But it was a shot that looked of
against Emporia State.
“Tis week of practice has been
tough, and coach has been on us,”
Withey said. “We’re defnitely go-
ing to have a lot more energy and
be ready to play for this game a lot
more than last week.”
Te game against Washburn is
actually Kansas’ sixth exhibition
game of the season, as they played

Self feels that the increased

helped his team get farther ofen-

“I don’t have the proof yet,
but I feel like in my gut it def-
nitely helped us,” senior guard
Elijah Johnson said. “You got to
ask yourself, what would be the
negative? And there’s defnitely no
negative about it.”
But the defense is still in the
same place as it would be, as the
coaches put most of the emphasis
on the ofense.
Despite playing at the Division
II level, Washburn still enters the

bods begin the season with lofy
expectations, ranked fourth in the

“I see it as a big game for both
of us,” Johnson said. “With them

dards for their year, and for us
as well, I think it’s a good test for
both schools. I feel like we’ll both

Te most difcult task for
the Fort Hays State Tigers in
Sunday’s 88-43 exhibition loss
against Kansas was just getting
the ball past half court, where
senior guard Angel Goodrich
waited for her next steal.
Goodrich forced three steals
in the frst half and one more in
the second half before leaving
the game afer playing 25 min-
“She is very disciplined,” head
coach Bonnie Henrickson said.
“Angel’s quick and she’s athletic,
but if you don’t have discipline
to back that up, you’re going to
be a reacher and a gambler, run
yourself out of a play and foul,
and Angel doesn’t do that.”
What Goodrich does do is
disrupt the other team’s ofense
and force turnovers. It didn’t
take long for Goodrich to stop
what Fort Hays State wanted to
do with their ofense.
“Te frst four or fve times
down the foor, we couldn’t get
into anything,” Tigers coach
Tony Hobson said. “We couldn’t
run what we wanted to run, so
she totally messed it up.”
When Fort Hays State did
manage to get the ball over half
court, getting it in the paint also
became a struggle. While limit-
ing the Tigers to eight points in
the paint in the frst half, the
Jayhawks went into the locker
room with a 49 to 22 lead, with
20 points of of turnovers.
Senior forward Carolyn Davis
continued her recovery from a
torn ACL as she played just 12
minutes. Te lack of playing
time was only because the score
of the game Henrickson said,
though Davis did miss practice
on Wednesday as a precaution
against playing too much on a
knee that is still healing.
Te Jayhawks improved in the
rebounding category from last
week’s game in which they were
out-rebounded by the Wash-
burn Ichabods. Rebounding has
been a point of emphasis for the
Jayhawks in practice as the team
prepares for the regular season,
starting Nov. 11 against Idaho
At the end of the day, Kansas
put together a strong perfor-
mance in every category, but the
45-point victory came against a
Fort Hays State team that was
forced to play without their
senior point guard Kaiameka
Brown changed out of her
uniform afer testing an injury
during warm-ups. In her place,
Fort Hays State was forced to
give playing time to several
freshmen guards who struggled
with the overwhelming defense
of Goodrich.
Regardless of the level of com-
petition, Goodrich had an im-
pressive game, scoring 19 points
on just 12 shots with 6 assists.
Goodrich played well enough
to give freshman point guard
Lamaria Cole signifcant play-
ing time, in which she played
well, scoring nine points with
an assist and a rebound. Cole
is the only true-point guard on
the Jayhawks roster to back-up
“I felt like she played well,”
Goodrich said of Cole. “She
pushed the ball, she was aggres-
sive and we need that from her.”
Goodrich showed in the exhi-
bition that she is one of the best
point guards in the NCAA, but
Goodrich said afer the game
that she is ready to start playing
in games that count.

WACO, TEXAS — It would be
one thing if Kansas lost a well-
fought game, or if the Jayhawks
had simply been overpowered. It’s
quite another to lose the game in
preparation, but that’s what hap-
pened in the Jayhawks’ 41-14 loss
to the Baylor Bears on Saturday.
In the week leading up the
game, some Kansas players decid-
ed to take it easy in practice.
“Tere were some things that
showed in practice this week that
we weren’t necessarily executing
to our full ability,” said senior
lef tackle Tanner Hawkinson. “It
showed up during the game. It
just shows you have to go out and
take each practice 100 percent.”
Hawkinson said Kansas wasn’t
getting of of its combo blocks up
front, and blockers were missing
assignments all during the prac-
tice week. It certainly didn’t help
Kansas when the trend carried
over to Saturday.
Tat’s particularly important as
Baylor won by playing the game
everyone assumed it would, even
the Jayhawks.
“Everything they did is exactly
what we expected,” Senior defen-
sive lineman Josh Williams said.
“An ofense like that you’ve got
to do everything you can to hold
them to a minimum.”
Kansas allowed the Bears to
create time and space for their star
wide receiver Terrance Williams
to make catches. Te Jayhawks
gave up 137-yards and a touch-
down on 11 receptions to the Big
12’s leading receiver.
“He has good speed, and they
have a great scheme around him,”
Senior cornerback Greg Brown
said, who was tasked with cover-
ing Williams. “Tey know what
kind of coverage they have and
bring it to his advantage.”
Te one time Brown had Wil-
liams beat, he intercepted the ball
near the goal line. But the play was
called back on an ofsides penalty
that was called on Kansas.
Te next play, Baylor went right
back to Williams on the same
route. Tis time he had no trouble
beating a fatigued Brown to the
back of the end zone to put the
Bears up 7-0.
Te Baylor passing game backed
up the Kansas defense enough to
open up the run game, where the
Bears gained over 300 rushing-
yards. It marked the frst game
this season Baylor exceeded 300
yards rushing.
Brown said that whenever Kan-
sas outnumbered Baylor in the
box, the Bears picked it up and
were able to convert.
When the pass wasn’t available
and the run wasn’t an option, it
was up to Senior quarterback Nick
Florence to get moving. Florence
scrambled 10 times, picking up 32
But it was the big plays Kansas’
defense gave up that disturbed
Kansas coach Charlie Weis the
most. Four Baylor receivers had
catches for 32 yards or longer.
Even with Baylor dominating
most of the game, Kansas was
only down 20-14 at halfime and
was starting to fnd its groove on
“Some of the things we had de-
signed to go early in the game were
extending our ofensive players to
their limits,” Weis said. “We had
to pull it back in. What we wanted
to try to do is be wide open in the
game to put us in a position to
score more points.”
Te Jayhawks were in the game
until the Bears delivered the
knockout blow in the third quar-
Kansas was stopped on fourth
down, and on the ensuing drive,
Baylor went 55 yards to the end
zone to go up 27-14. Te Jay-
hawks had the perfect play to get
back in the game, but quarterback
Michael Cumming’s pass bounced
of the hands of an outstretched
Chris Omigie, and into the body
of a falling Joe Williams. Weis did
say it was Cumming’s best pass of
the game, but Williams cradled
the interception at the fve-yard
line for Baylor, killing the Jay-
hawks momentum.
“It almost was like afer that
play to Omigie, you could feel
the wind go out of the sails,” Weis
Te boat stopped moving with
26 minutes to play.
Te plan was straightforward
for this game: Baylor would try to
score a bevy of points, and Kan-
sas would try to match it. A lull
in practice afer a heartbreaking
loss to Texas did not help the Jay-
hawks exceed their season average
of 17-points a game.
“Going into this game, we
thought we were going to have
to score more,” Weis said. “If you
think you’re going to play a game
with them and win it 21-17, the
only two times this year they’ve
scored 21 points is when they’ve
turned it over a whole bunch.”

College football Championship
piCture Clearer after big week-
Alabama, Kansas State, Notre Dame
and Oregon all won Saturday to remain
undefeated and retain their positions
as the four top-ranked teams in college
football. While each team won, two teams
separated themselves from the others with
their performances over the weekend.
Alabama went into Death Valley to take
on the fifth-ranked Louisiana State Tigers
and won in dramatic, come-from-behind
fashion 21-17. Not only was this a big win
within the SEC for the Crimson Tide, but it
was a statement victory for a team vying to
return to the national championship game
for a second-straight season.
Though Alabama looked sloppy at times
and allowed LSU to dominate the time of
possession, the top-ranked team showed
that it can win in hostile situations even
when things go wrong.
The other team that set itself apart
from the pack were our neighbors from
Manhattan. Kansas State looked sharp in
all facets of the game. The offense was able
to move the ball effectively and controlled
The defense gave up 30 points, but
also forced five key turnovers and lim-
ited explosive plays. Even special teams
got involved with a 100-yard kick return
touchdown in the 44-30 victory over
Oklahoma State.
Heisman contender Collin Klein, how-
ever, left the game because of a head injury
and it is uncertain how serious the injury
will be. The Wildcats need Klein if they
hope to remain undefeated and reach the
BCS championship game.
While Oregon beat a top-25 team in the
USC Trojans, it was a lot of the same from
the Ducks. The offense had its way all day
long, but the defense was exposed against a
good Trojan passing game.
Oregon showed it has the best offense
in the nation, but Alabama and Kansas
State’s balance is what makes them the
top-ranked teams in the country.

The Los Angeles Lakers entered the
2012-2013 NBA season as the talk of the
league. With new acquisitions Dwight
Howard and Steve Nash ready to comple-
ment Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol, there
was speculation that the Lakers would be
in the NBA Finals at seasons end.
As of Sunday, the Lakers record stands
at 0-3 with losses to the Dallas Mavericks,
who are playing without their star Dirk
Nowitzki, the Portland Trailblazers and
hometown rival Los Angeles Clippers.
On top of the losses, the smallest margin
of victory for a Lakers opponent was eight
points, which must be discouraging to
hopeful Lakers fans.
With Steve Nash out for at least a week,
talk has already started about whether the
Lakers will be as good as predicted. That
talk, however, is overreaction.
The Lakers bring in a collective 33 all-
star appearances in their starting lineup
and years of experience playing at an
extremely high level. While Phil Jackson is
no longer
around to
direct them, Bryant and Nash are on-court
leaders that will be sure to bring the team
together. Bryant is too competitive to let
failure continue for any extended period
of time.
Los Angeles may continue to struggle
out of the gate, but expect them to go on a
run in the middle and late part of the sea-
son and finish near the top of the Western

The Kansas volleyball team knew
Baylor would run an unorthodox
offense, but the Jayhawks
couldn’t adjust quickly
enough in its 3-1 loss to the
Bears on Saturday. Baylor
emphasized its middle
blockers and attacked away
from the net to cinch the
“They really forced their
middles when they’re out
of system, which is some-
thing we’re not really used to,” said
junior setter Erin McNorton. “I
think it just came down to errors.”
While Baylor fed the ball to its
middle blockers when they got
out of system, the Jayhawks never
established a consistent attack
when Baylor’s forced Kansas out of
its own system.
Unlike most big offenses, the
Bears’ middle blockers and out-
side hitters don’t always
crowd the net, instead
electing to attack closer
to the attack line. This
let the Bears hit the ball
at different angles from
the Jayhawk defense is
used to.
“I think they did a
good job of getting us
out of system, so that I
could have made better choices,”
McNorton said. “Making better
choices or a better pass, a better
spot to hit it at. Just everything
needed to click better, and it didn’t
Kansas opened the match by
playing its worst set of the year.
The Bears scored
the first four points,
and the Jayhawks
couldn’t match
their performance.
Baylor’s lead
stretched to 10-2,
then 15-5 and then
22-6. Kansas com-
mitted eight attack
errors in the first set and recorded
only six kills, helping Baylor win
the set 25-10.
“We definitely weren’t passing
the ball, so we weren’t able to run
our typical offense,” said junior
middle blocker Caroline Jarmoc.
“We didn’t seem prepared. They
came at us quick and aggressive,
and by the time we reacted, it was
already at the end of the set.”
The second set more closely
resembled a
typical Kansas-
Baylor match,
as it was the
eighth time in
nine years the
two schools
split the sea-
son series. The
teams traded
the lead back and forth, with nei-
ther leading by more than four
points. But Kansas couldn’t hold a
23-20 lead, falling in an extended
set 27-25.
Baylor nearly swept the
Jayhawks, holding a 24-23 lead in
the third set. But Kansas responded
by scoring the next three points,
giving them the set and some posi-
tive signs of life.
Coach Ray Bechard said Kansas
didn’t let the opening set affect its
play the rest of the evening.
“We had a 21-18 lead in the sec-
ond set, and regardless of the score
of the first set, we could have been
1-1 at the break,” Bechard said. “We
fought hard in set three to make
it 2-1, but then you need to get to
set five.”
For much of the fourth set,
Kansas looked like it would force
that fifth set, which would have
boded well for the Jayhawks. They
are 4-0 in five-set matches this
season. A Baylor block gave them
an 11-7 lead, but Kansas went on
a 10-2 run to take a 17-13 lead,
capped by an ace by junior libero
Brianne Riley.
But Baylor settled down and
tied the match at 18, squashing
the Jayhawks’ momentum. The
teams traded the lead, but Kansas
wouldn’t score again after sopho-
more outside hitter Sara McClinton
knotted the match at 23. Baylor
won the set 25-23, and the match
3-1. It is the Jayhawks first loss of
the season to an opponent outside
of the Top 40 in the RPI.
“We weren’t as disciplined and
focused as we usually are and have
been, and that showed,” Jarmoc
said. “It was sloppy errors. We
would get a run, and we would
get ahead, and then there would
be two or three errors, and they’re
back in it.”

Travis Releford, Senior Guard
Releford had an unspectacular day against Empo-
ria State, with seven points and two rebounds in 22
minutes of play. However, Releford’s most important
contribution — his tenacious approach to defense
— isn’t frequently refected in the box score.
Ben McLemore, Freshman Guard
McLemore showed off his athletic ability on a
monster put-back slam in the frst exhibition game
against Emporia State. He claims to have felt no
nerves entering the frst game, but Self thinks he
did. Either way, it wasn’t a problem; he found his
groove, scoring four for seven baskets for a total of
11 points.
Elijah Johnson, Senior Guard
Johnson’s effect was instantly felt when he entered
the game. He jump-started an offense that looked
sluggish while he sat out for being signifcantly late
to one of his classes. The Jayhawks won’t be able to
afford him arriving late to class when the tougher
opponents of the regular season roll around.
Jamari Traylor, Freshman Forward
Traylor is one of the players auditioning for the
starting role in the front court, opposite Jeff Withey.
He lacks the offensive punch of freshman forward
Perry Ellis, but can make his mark with aggressive
play on the defensive end of the foor.
Jeff Withey, Senior Center
Withey didn’t effect the Jayhawks last game as
much he was expected to. He missed badly on a few
low post moves before fnally fnding the net and
scoring seven points in 18 minutes of play. His role
could be expanded against a Washburn team that
played two other Big 12 schools — Kansas State
and Oklahoma — within 20 points.

KANSAS VS. Washburn
7 p.m., Lawrence, Kan.
The Jayhawks enter tonight’s exhibi-
tion game trying to sort out what their
rotation will look like this season. Last
week, 11 players logged double-digit
minutes. This game should be more of
the same, as Kansas Coach Bill Self
tries to offer playing experience to the
large crop of freshmen while simultane-
ously building the chemistry between
the younger and older players.
Washburn enters the 2012 season as
the coaches pick to win the Mid-America
Intercollegiate Athletics Association and is
ranked fourth in the NABC preseason coach-
es poll. Coach Bob Chipman enters his 34th
season at Washburn after a 25-8 2011 cam-
paign that ended in the second round of the
NCAA Division II tournament. The Ichabods
shot 46 percent from the feld last year, and
averaged 72.5 points per game. Washburn
was tough on defense forcing 518 turnovers
while turning it over 386 times themselves.
In last week’s 83-66 loss against the Okla-
homa Sooners, senior guard Will McNeill led
the way with 19 points. The Ichabods shot
41 percent from the feld, but turned the
ball over 23 times.

Will McNeil, Senior Guard
McNeil enters his senior season at Washburn 12th all-
time on the Ichabod scoring list with 1,160 career points.
In the 2011-12 season, he earned frst team NABC All-
American honors. Against Oklahoma, McNeill scored 19
points with one assist and one turnover in 33 minutes.
McNeill has started 50 of his 92 career games and has
averaged 12.9 points per game.
Martin Mitchell, Senior Guard
Mitchell transferred to Washburn after two season
at Southwest Tennessee Community College where he
averaged 8 points per game and 3 assists per game in
his sophomore year. Last season, his frst at Washburn,
Mitchell averaged 10 points per game in 33 appearanc-
es. Against Oklahoma, Mitchell turned the ball over six
times, scoring nine points in 24 minutes.

Alex North, Junior Guard
A Topeka native and Topeka West High School-
graduate, North started 24 of 56 games in his career.
He averages 5.1 points and 3.4 blocks per game. As a
sophomore, he averaged 6.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and
1.1 assists per game. Against Oklahoma, North fouled
out with three points, two rebounds, one steal and one
turnover in 18 minutes of play.
Bobby Chipman, Senior Forward
Topeka native and Washburn Rural High School
alum, Bobby Chipman earned honorable mention All-
MIAA honors last season after starting all 33 games
and averaging 7.3 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.
Against Oklahoma, Chipman scored three points with
two steals, one block and one assist in 25 minutes.
Zach Riggins, Senior Forward
Riggins has made 30 starts as an Ichabod averag-
ing 5.5 points per game. He joined the Ichabods after
transferring from the University of North Florida, where
he averaged 5.3 points per game in 10 starts as a true
freshman. He appeared in six games in his sophomore
season at Washburn before taking a medical redshirt
after suffering a severe concussion.

Freshman guard
Andrew White III
White has showed his scoring ability
— notching 10 points in the frst exhibi-
tion game — but has also struggled. He
is leading the team with fve turnovers,
a third of the Jayhawks’ total turnovers.
If he continues to turn the ball over, ex-
pect Self to place White on a very short
Senior guard Will McNeill
An NABC All-American last season, Mc-
Neill returns for his senior campaign at-
tempting to build on a second round tour-
nament run last season. McNeill missed the
entire 2010-11 season with a broken bone in
his foot before returning for his All-American
campaign. McNeill is a slasher. Against
Oklahoma, he went a perfect 12 of 12 from
the free throw line, leading the Ichabods
with 19 points.
Can senior center Jeff Withey
fnd his offensive fow?
Withey can no longer rely on Thomas
Robinson to open him up for easy bas-
kets, so he will now be counted on to use
his height and arm length to knock down
his shots in the post early, which in turn
will open up the rest of the offense.
Can Washburn’s forwards handle
the athleticism of Kansas’ frontcourt?

Washburn’s starting forwards are un-
dersized. Against Oklahoma, senior Bobby
Chipman pulled down eight boards, but
Zack Riggins only grabbed two rebounds. For
Washburn to keep the game close, these two
will have to be a defensive presence in the
post against the young, athletic frontcourt
of Kansas.
“They look like freshmen. They look
like freshmen that can run and jump
though, but they look like freshmen. They
don’t know what they’re doing.”
— Kansas Coach Bill Self on
the play of Jamari Traylor and Ben
McLemore against Emporia State
“They put a body on us on the boards. We
looked a little weak. They had a little sting to
their defense, and we were a little casual.”
— Bob Chipman after Kansas State
beat the Ichabods on the boards ear-
lier in the exhibition season.
The Jayhawks fnd their rhythm early
and use their defense to create turn-
overs, which would lead to fast break
opportunities and easy points.
The young Jayhawks commit careless
turnovers, leading to easy Washburn buckets
that enable the Ichabods to keep the game
close into the second half.

Go ahead and jump on the James
Sims bandwagon, there’s plenty of
room. It seems every week Sims starts
slow but then breaks through for a
major run. against Baylor, it was a
58-yard touchdown in the frst quar-
ter. He fnished the day with 136-yards
— making him the frst Jayhawk since
1974 with fve straight hundred yard

GLAss hALf emptY
Baylor racked up 666 yards, had
four receivers with catches of more
than 32 yards, and gained more than
300 yards on the ground for the frst
time all year. This game will give Kan-
sas defensive coordinator Dave Cam-
po nightmares. The Jayhawks’ defense
plays great at home, now they have to
learn how to keep it up on the road.
GOOd, BAd OR Just pLAin
In the second quarter, Kansas came
out to kick a feld goal from about
30-yards out on 4th and 10. Kansas
coach Charlie Weis said he told his
players if an opportunity to run a fake
was there to take it. The opportunity
wasn’t there, but that didn’t stop the
Jayhawks from trying to run the ball
in. They only got a yard.
Verdict: Just Plain Stupid
deLAY Of the GAme
Kansas went into halftime after
limiting a 17-play drive by Baylor to
just a feld goal, but a rain delay at
halftime killed any momentum the
Jayhawks gained.

If Baylor was trouble for Kansas,
there’s even more reason for concern
heading into lubbock, Texas next
week. The Jayhawks will go from fac-
ing the best passing game in the na-

in the nation — not to mention the
18th best defense.

“The one thing we’re going to really have to research is rain delays. I prepare for a lot
of stuff, but I really haven’t done a lot of research on lightning delays. I’m 0-2.”
— Kansas coach charlie weis on losing after rain delays
WACO, TEXAS — Even with
the dreary weather and a 41-14
loss to the Baylor Bears, Kansas
junior running back James Sims
continues to be the bright spot
on the offense.
For the first time since 1974,
a Jayhawk running back has
reached the 100-yard plateau
in five consecutive games. The
only other Jayhawk to do so was
Laverne Smith, who hit that
mark during his sophomore sea-
son with the Jayhawks.
He wouldn’t have been able to
do it without the five offensive
linemen who block for him.
“I give all the credit to the
offensive line,” Sims said. “They
did an amazing job up front and
won the line of scrimmage. I ran
behind them, and they gave me
the holes, and I just ran through
Sims ran through those holes
for 136 yards on 21 carries and a
touchdown. He eclipsed the 100-
yard mark during the first half,
as he rushed for 116 yards and
his lone touchdown.
Coach Charlie Weis said Sims
is the Jayhawk workhorse, and
he’s getting a lot of opportuni-
ties to run the ball because the
offense has been ineffective.
During the five straight games
that Sims has had 100 yards, his
workload has been steady. He’s
carried the ball 162 times for 667
yards and three touchdowns.
Senior tackle Tanner
Hawkinson is one of the key rea-
sons why Sims has been able to
reach the 100-yard mark in five
of the six games he has played.
Hawkinson said having a back
like Sims makes his job — and
the job of the rest of the line — a
lot easier.
“You know you can just go
out there and just stay on your
blocks, and he’ll be able to pro-
duce,” Hawkinson said. “He’s
going to be able to make some
big runs like he did tonight. He’s
obviously a great back and a
great asset to us.”
Hawkinson said that Sims is
able to make something hap-
pen on a routine basis, which
speaks to how good he truly is.
Hawkinson also said that Sims
keeps improving each game.
“It’s just the way he comes out
every game,” Hawkinson said.
“It just seems like he’s running
harder from game to game. It’s
his work ethic that transpired
from a great offseason that has
definitely paid off for him.”
The thing that really stands
out about Sims is the fact that he
has rushed for 622 yards this sea-
son in just six games. Last year,
he rushed for 727 yards in 12
games, and he rushed 742 yards
in 11 games during his freshman
The statistics speak well for
Sims, and Weis recognizes what
he has been able to do.
“He’s as good as I’ve seen in
this league,” Weis said.

national championship appearance.
However, K-State quarterback Collin Klein lef the
game in the third quarter because of an undisclosed

leaving the game. Along with Klein’s touchdown, run-
ning back John Hubert’s two touchdowns gave the

coach Mike Gundy turned to Clint Chelf at quarter-
back. Te Cowboys scored only two touchdowns on
ofense, but got help on special teams from rarely used
running back Desmond Roland on an 80-yard kickof
return for a touchdown.
But Kansas State’s defense and special teams units
found the end zone to help add points to the score-
board. Wide Reciever Tyler Lockett returned a kickof
100 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. But
the biggest star for the Wildcats was cornerback Allen
Chapman, who intercepted three passes including one
in the second quarter for a touchdown.
Kansas State coach Bill Snyder did not provide any
details to the media regarding Klein’s injury.

fourth quarter until Ash threw his third touchdown

Te two Big 12 newcomers came into Week 9 look-
ing to snap their two-game losing streaks. It was Texas
Christian who snapped its losing streak with an in-
credible trick play to win in double overtime.
TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin threw two touch-
down passes to Josh Boyce. Boyce lead all receivers in
the game with 180 yards and a pair of touchdowns on
the day.
West Virginia had a weapon of its own at receiver.

ing a 43-yard catch and run in which Austin ran across
the entire feld before heading for the end zone. Geno
Smith, despite throwing an interception early on,

touchdown passes.
But in double overtime, TCU looked for a trick
play in the playbook and pulled out a reverse pass for
a touchdown. Wide receiver Brandon Carter took a
handof and threw to tight end Corey Fuller in the end
zone for a touchdown. Boykin threw the game-win-
ning two-point conversion to Boyce to win the thriller
in Morgantown.
