Architecture graduate students
hope a patch of land on West
Campus will help them receive job
offers after graduation.
Unlike most architecture pro-
grams, students in Studio 804
design and construct a building
during the academic year instead
of just designing it. They are also
responsible for finding a client,
funding and materials. This year,
students in Studio 804 are build-
ing the Engineering Research
and Teaching facility for KU
EcoHawks.
Participation in a project like
Studio 804 helps architecture stu-
dents make themselves stand out,
which is more likely to lead to
job offers from larger architecture
firms.
A May 2012 study by
Georgetown University found that
architecture has the highest unem-
ployment rate at 13.9 percent of
any major for recent graduates.
The study used the United States
Census Bureau data from 2009
and 2010.
University architecture instruc-
tor Charles Linn attributes this
to peoples mindset before the
economy crashed since they want-
ed as much building of homes,
shopping centers and restaurants
as possible because credit was so
widely available.
We also suffer from the fact
that because credit was so easy to
get prior to the crash, there was a
tremendous amount of building
going on prior to the crash, Linn
said. After the crash, people just
have had a tremendously difficult
time of borrowing money to do
construction.
But Mandy Moore, a third-year
graduate architecture student,
said she isnt concerned about the
architecture unemployment rate.
The University
uses a graduate
program that many
other schools do
not, Moore said.
She is also one of
20 graduate stu-
dents who are part
of Studio 804.
Typical archi-
tecture firms will
just produce con-
struction docu-
ments, Moore
said. Theyll design the build-
ing, and then that design theyll
translate that onto paper and be
able to show whoever is building
that building how big it is, what
needs to go where, how electricity
runs through it, how water runs
through it.
According to the American
Institute of Architects most recent
Business of Architecture survey
in 2009, one-person architecture
firms comprise 24 percent of
the profession, but employ only
two percent of hired architects.
However, firms of at least 100
people comprise two percent of
architecture firms, but employ 30
percent of architects.
Kate Medin, a third-year archi-
tecture graduate student and one of
Moores teammates at Studio 804,
has interned at both a small archi-
tecture firm and The Architects
Alliance, a mid-level firm. She
said Studio 804 gives students an
a d v a n t a g e
over students
from other
schools who
rely more on
e nt r y- l e vel
internships.
I think
the students
that havent
been out
there. that are
sitting beside
us this year,
are getting that experience figur-
ing out how much things actually
cost and then how to install it into
the building, Medin said.
Moore said Studio 804, led by
executive director Dan Rockhill,
gives Kansas students the training
architecture firms are looking for
by involving them from the begin-
ning of the design stage to the end
of the construction stage. Students
in Studio 804 have an academic
year to complete the design and
construction process from start to
finish. They are hoping to begin
construction on the EcoHawks
facility by the end of the month.
I know that Dan had men-
tioned that there had been times
where hell receive calls from
potential employers from past 804
students and these employers will
say, Well, I have this whole stack
of portfolios here, but I saw Studio
804. Can you tell me about this
student? Moore said.
Linn said when the architecture
industry experienced a recession
in the 1990s, enough architects
left the industry so thatit resulted
in what he termed a mid-level
management gap. When it recov-
ered, so many architects had left
the profession that there was actu-
ally a shortage of architects.
This gives younger architects an
advantage because theyve received
the most up-to-date training that
includes training in the newest
software used to design buildings.
Part of the thing that can hap-
pen, particularly for younger peo-
ple, the economy can come back,
the unemployment rate can go
down, just through attrition, Linn
said. So I think that what theyre
predicting the shortage for are
skilled, knowledged workers who
are the kind of people that were
trying to train.

Miltons closes, owner
to open new restaurant
Miltons, 920 Massachusetts St., has
closed its doors to make way for a new
restaurant. however, the Miltons on the
frst foor of the Kansas union will stay
open.
the restaurant opened in 1997 and
attracted loyal customers over the years.
those customers and more flled the res-
taurant and feasted on one last Miltons
breakfast yesterday.
i think its the end of an era, Allison
Maker, lawrence resident, said. Miltons
is somewhere ive always come with my
parents for Sunday brunch.
david lewis, owner of the shops, and
Sula teller, chef, are opening a new res-
taurant called loopys in the 901 Build-
ing, 901 new hampshire St.
loopys will have a few breakfast
items, lunch and dinner, as well as to-go
salads, sandwiches and baked goods.
teller said a lot of the meals would be
made from scratch and from local foods.
the tentative grand opening is nov. 26.
its hours will be 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
the goal is to be an asset to the com-
munity, lewis said. loopys is hiring for
kitchen help. prospective employees can
apply by emailing jobs@iloveloopys.

police target unsafe
drivers during holiday
the lawrence police department is
targeting impaired drivers and vehicle
occupants not wearing seat belts all
week.
the department is one of several po-
lice agencies statewide participating in
the Kansas thanksgiving traffc enforce-
ment campaign, which begins today and
runs through Sunday, nov. 25.
According to the Kansas department
of transportation, the thanksgiving
holiday weekend frequently outranks
other holidays in Kansas in the number
of driver impaired crashes.
Kdot is funding overtime costs dur-
ing the holiday through a grant.
the lawrence police department re-
minds motorists to buckle up, designate
a driver and do your part to help make
the street safer during the holiday sea-
son, said lpd spokesman Sgt. trent
McKinley in a press release.

Jack Schwartz, a freshman from St. louis, works on a light box project in an architecture studio last night. Students in Studio 804 design and construct a building by
fnding a client, funding and materials to build it.
It may have been a little easier
for Kansas Athletics Inc. to hand
out free student football tickets
Saturday because more than $1
million from student ticket sales
is already in the bank.
With 7,400 All-Sports Student
Combo tickets sold, Kansas
Athletics has made $1.1 million,
with tickets still selling.
Students could buy football-
only tickets for $45, but must
buy the $150 sports combo to
get season basketball tickets.
Jim Marchioni, a spokesman for
Kansas Athletics, expects ticket
combo sales to be about the same
as the 7,700 sold last year.
The basketball tickets always
sell, he said.
And students like Kayley
Hemmy, a freshman from Salina,
buy combo tickets specifically
with basketball in mind.
I wanted to go to the bas-
ketball games, Hemmy said. I
havent been to a full football
game.
But other students like Vincent
Jerkovich, a junior from Salina,
dont mind paying a little extra
for football tickets.
I think its a pretty good deal,
Jerkovich said, admitting he had
not gone to many football games
this year. I buy them because
I love sports, and I guess the
money is probably still worth it
even if you just go to the basket-
ball games.
Marchioni said the total sales
numbers of combo tickets are not
as high as in 2008 or 2009, when
both football and basketball were
excelling. Despite the student
sales, Marchioni said about 7,000
more general admission football
tickets were sold.
It has a lot to do with the
excitement surrounding Charlie
Weis, Marchioni said.
All football ticket sales, includ-
ing student tickets, make up about
10 percent of Kansas Athletics,
roughly $65 million total rev-
enue.
Marchioni said the department
stood to make little by giving
away tickets to Saturdays game,
not even off concession sales.
Were not counting on one
dime more from concessions, he
said. This is really all about sup-
porting the seniors.
Though Jerkovich had only
gone to a couple home games
using the tickets he paid for, he
planned to go Saturday for free.
It really doesnt bother me
that I paid for tickets and they are
giving them away, Jerkovich said.
I think itll be good to go tell the
seniors we appreciate them for
playing such a rough season.

POLICE REPORTS
WASHINGTON Louisiana
Gov. Bobby Jindal says the
Republican Party needs to go back
to basics to attract the broad coali-
tion of voters credited with putting
President Barack Obama back in
the White House.
Kindergarten basics.
If we want people to like us, we
have to like them first, Jindal said
on Fox News Sunday.
Former Commerce Secretary
Carlos Gutierrez has a more nuts-
and-bolts approach to bringing
in some of the largest and fast-
est growing groups of Americans:
Hes forming a super PAC to sup-
port Republican candidates who
back comprehensive immigration
reform, including legalizing the
status of an estimated 11 million
immigrants in the U.S. without
authorization.
The 2012 elections drove home
trends that have been embed-
ded for years in the fine print of
birth and death rates, immigra-
tion statistics and census charts.
Nonwhites made up 28 percent
of the electorate this year, com-
pared with 20 percent in 2000, with
Hispanics comprising much of that
growth. Obama captured a com-
manding 80 percent of the growing
ranks of nonwhite voters in 2012,
just as he did in 2008. Republican
Mitt Romney won 59 percent of
non-Hispanic whites, and although
he dominated among white men
outperforming 2008 nominee John
McCain among that group he
couldnt win.
Republicans have spent much of
the time since the election wres-
tling with ways to appeal beyond
their base of white men and mar-
ried women. Nonetheless, in a con-
ference call to big donors last week,
Romney credited Obamas win to
extraordinary financial gifts from
government he said the president
gave groups in his base coalition:
Latinos, African-Americans and
young people.
Both Jindal and Gutierrez backed
Romneys bid for the White House,
but distanced themselves from his
post-election comments.
Jindal, the incoming chair of the
Republican Governors Association
and a potential presidential can-
didate in 2016, on Sunday said
slighting people simply isnt good
politics.
You dont start to like people
by insulting them and saying their
votes were bought. We are an aspi-
rational party, he said.
Jindal said the Republican
Party needs to convince voters it
is the party of the middle class
and upward mobility. Its conserva-
tive principles are good for every
single voter.
We also dont need to be saying
stupid things, Jindal said, refer-
ring to GOP Senate candidates in
Missouri and Indiana who lost
their races after comments about
rape that were widely criticized.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker,
the GOP groups incoming vice
chair, said also on Fox News
Sunday that governors are key to
bringing a diversity of voters to
the GOP. Thirty states have elected
Republican governors, an indica-
tion that the trust factor is there.
Weve got a message that works
for young people, that works for
people who come to our country
from other countries, and, basically
for anyone who wants to live their
piece of the American dream,
Walker said. I think that starts
with our governors as great mes-
sengers.
Gutierrez, who served under
George W. Bush, is hopeful for the
future of his party.
If we get this right... the 21st
century is ours, Gutierrez said,
referring to the GOP. If we get it
wrong, shame on us.
Leaders say GOP must revise tactics

Former professor fles to
appeal tenure case
A former University professor is ap-
pealing a Douglas County District Court
decision that defends the Uni-
versitys decision not to award
tenure to him.
Albert Romkes worked
as an assistant mechanical
engineering professor since
2005 until he was not award-
ed tenure last school year and
subsequently dismissed from
the University.
The appeal was fled last month with
the Kansas Court of Appeals after Doug-
las County District Judge Robert Fairchild
handed down a decision in September
siding with the University. Fairchild said
in the decision that the tenure denial was
supported by substantial evidence and
is neither arbitrary nor capricious.
Though not part of the legal dis-
agreements, Romkes has maintained
his stance that the Universitys decision
against him is personal because he was
an openly gay faculty member.
The Universitys tenure
process evaluates candidates
based on teaching, scholar-
ship and service. It consists
of three independent levels
of review, with the University
Committee on Promotion and
Tenure being the last level.
UCPT is an 11-person com-
mittee with the Universitys provost as
a chair. Romkes was recommended for
tenure by the frst two levels, but both
the department chair and the dean of the
School of Engineering did not agree with
the decision to award Romkes tenure.
UCPT agreed not to award Romkes tenure
because he had not served as a principal
investigator on externally-funded grants.
To me, it was clear that there was
some personal issue for the dean and
the chairman to go against me, Romkes
said in a previous University Daily Kan-
san story about his lawsuit. I had no
idea what it was, except for one potential
issue: the gay issue.
Engineering students and alumni de-
fended and supported Romkes through
kualumni4romkes.org. The site alleges
that Romkes was not aware of the prin-
cipal investigator rule because it came
into effect in 2009, and Romkes is the
only professor rejected for tenure based
on the rule.

HAVANA Sydney Gregory
has never met her father, an Olym-
pic silver medalist in fencing who
defected from the Cuban team at
a tournament in Lisbon in 2002
when she was 15 days old. But he
recently rang from Italy with good
news: Papas coming home to visit.
Im very happy, the 10-year-
old girl said, smiling in her school
uniform with a headband holding
back her jet-black hair. My father
called me on the phone and told
me hes going to come. Im going to
meet him!
Under Cuban law, those who
abandoned their homeland have
had to apply for permission to
return, even for the kind of brief
family visit Elvis Gregory hopes
to make. Many high-profle people
considered deserters have had their
requests to return rejected by a
communist-run government that
complained about the large fnan-
cial investment it made in their
careers. Some didnt even bother to
ask, knowing their petitions would
be turned down.
But a change taking efect in
January will make it simpler for
Cubans to visit the homeland they
abandoned. It essentially establish-
es a single set of rules governing
the right of return that will apply to
everyone who lef illegally, no mat-
ter what the circumstances of their
departure.
Te new rules could potentially
afect many leading cultural and
athletic fgures, from musicians
and doctors to ballet dancers and
former Yankee pitcher Orlando El
Duque Hernandez. Tens of thou-
sands of people once considered
traitors could now be welcomed
home.
Cuba is normalizing the tem-
porary entrance into the country
of those who emigrated illegally
following the migratory accords
of 1994 if more than eight years
has gone by since their departure,
Homero Acosta, secretary of the
governing Council of State, said in
a recent TV program examining the
changes announced last month.
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip Ga-
zas Hamas rulers are aiming high
in the conditions they place on
stopping rocket fre into Israel in
indirect cease-fre talks launched
this weekend. Emboldened by Arab
support and confdent in their arse-
nal, the Islamists say calm can only
come if Israel opens the gates of the
tiny, closed-of territory.
Te question is how far Hamas
will go to reach that long-sought
goal, which Israel opposes out of
fear of an infux of weapons to Gaza
militants.
For now, public opinion in Gaza
appears to support continued
rocket attacks on Israel. However,
Israeli aircraf have already struck
hundreds of Hamas-linked targets
in Gaza and Israel is threatening to
escalate its military ofensive.
Te indirect contacts between Is-
rael and Hamas began Sunday, the
ffh day of Israels massive bomb-
ing campaign meant to halt more
than a decade of intermittent Gaza
rocket attacks on Israel.
An Israeli envoy was whisked
from the tarmac at Cairos interna-
tional airport to talks with senior
Egyptian security ofcials. Te
top Hamas leader in exile Khaled
Mashaal held talks with Egyp-
tian President Mohammed Morsi,
who also spoke by phone with the
Hamas prime minister in Gaza, Is-
mail Haniyeh.
Hamas demands, as presented
by Mashaal, include open borders
for Gaza and international guar-
antees that Israel will halt all at-
tacks on Gaza, including targeted
killings of the movements leaders.
Te assassination of Hamas mili-
tary chief last week afer days of
smaller exchanges between the two
sides marked the start of the Israeli
ofensive, the most intense since
a three-week-long war four years
ago.
Te Islamists view the current
round of fghting as an opportunity
to pry open the borders of Gaza,
which slammed shut in 2007, afer
Hamas wrested control of the terri-
tory from its political rival, Pales-
tinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
In response to the takeover, Israel
and Egypt then under Morsis
pro-Western predecessor Hosni
Mubarak sealed of Gaza to dis-
rupt Hamas rule.
We will not accept a cease-fre
until the occupation (Israel) meets
our conditions, said Izzat Rishaq,
a senior Hamas ofcial who is in-
volved in the cease-fre eforts in
Cairo.
Te current round of fght-
ing will eventually grind to a halt,
but its unlikely the two sides will
emerge with a durable cease-fre,
said Israeli analyst Yossi Alpher.
Both sides will have to come
down from their lofy demands,
and it will require some heavy pres-
sure, he said.
Serbians react to UN
war crimes court ruling
BELGRADE, Serbia Serb nation-
alists burned a Croatian fag Saturday
to protest a decision by a U.N. war
crimes court overturning guilty verdicts
against two Croatian generals, and
the prime minister called the decision
a blow to reconciliation in the postwar
Balkans.
Many in Serbia are furious that ap-
peals judges at the Netherlands-based
tribunal on Friday freed Ante Gotovina
and Mladen Markac, who had been
previously sentenced to lengthy prison
terms for killing and expelling Serbs
from Croatia during an offensive in
1995.
This will have serious consequenc-
es at reconciliation in the region, Ser-
bias premier Ivica Dacic said. How
can someone demand that we condemn
all crimes if others are allowed not to
condemn the crimes against Serbs?
Croatians, meanwhile, consider the
decision proof that they were the vic-
tims in the Balkan confict. The two
generals received state honors and a
heros welcome on Friday.

F
or a year so flush with
potential, 2012 has prov-
en a decidedly mixed bag
for filmgoers, overflowing with
a dubious assortment of pleas-
ant surprises and profound disap-
pointments.
Films like Joss Whedons The
Avengers and the new 007 adven-
ture Skyfall radically surpassed
audience expectations while The
Dark Knight Rises, my own most
anticipated movie of the year,
ended up being a technically
accomplished, creatively exhaust-
ed letdown. Prometheus, direc-
tor Ridley Scotts long-prophesized
return to science fiction, earned
the ire of Alien fans after reveal-
ing itself to be less a straightfor-
ward prequel to Scotts 1979 origi-
nal than an audacious standalone
effort that happened to be set in
the same universe. And dont even
get me started on The Bourne
Legacy, which sullied the perfect
action trilogy with an unrelated
quest for super-steroids.
While rebooted web-slingers,
estrogenic archers and Rihanna-
enhanced board game adapta-
tions vied for box office suprem-
acy, exciting auteurist visions
like Rian Johnsons time travel
opus Looper and Paul Thomas
Andersons intoxicating religious
allegory The Master struck a
chord with audiences starved for
intelligence and innovation.
So what can we expect from the
rest of the year? Well, December
is traditionally Hollywoods prov-
ing ground for Oscar contenders,
meaning that the next few weeks
will likely see a deluge of true-life
dramas, visually extravagant peri-
od pieces and at least one more
film featuring the British mon-
archy. The following five movies,
drastically varied in terms of style
and content and listed in no par-
ticular order, are the ones I have
the highest hopes for.
First up is The Hobbit: An
Unexpected Journey, the first
part of Peter Jacksons new Middle
Earth trilogy. The films title is
deeply ironic, mainly because
fans have been anticipating its
release for the better part of eight
years now, through the dark days
of MGMs financial quagmire
and the departure of Jacksons
first choice to helm the series:
Guillermo Del Toro, who spent
more than two years designing
creatures and developing the
scripts with Jackson and his writ-
ing team. Despite the litany of
setbacks, the finished product
itself looks like a marvelous, if
distended, adaptation of J.R.R.
Tolkiens beloved story, which
finds homebody hobbit Bilbo
Baggins (Martin Freeman) being
recruited by a company of dwarves
to help reclaim their treasure from
the wicked dragon Smaug (voiced
by Freemans Sherlock co-star
Benedict Cumberbatch).
Setbacks were never a problem
for Tom Hoopers star-studded
take on Les Misrables. After
last years Oscar haul, the direc-
tor of The Kings Speech was
essentially given carte blanche for
his dream project, a big screen
version of the Broadway musi-
cal based on Victor Hugos classic
novel of redemption and revolu-
tion in 19th century France. The
new film is already generating
buzz based on its rapturous trailer,
which features Anne Hathaway,
Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe
actually singing as opposed to
merely lip-syncing to pre-record-
ed audio tracks. Ordinarily Im no
fan of musicals, but this one looks
pretty damn stunning.
Two of the films on my list offer
conflicting views of a far more
intimate spectacle: the highs and
lows of married life. Judd Apatows
This Is 40, the pseudo-sequel to
Knocked Up, reacquaints us with
the unhappily married Pete (Paul
Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann),
who are trying to recapture their
sex lives after a decade devoted
to parenting and indulging their
own petty hang-ups. This may be
discouragingly familiar territory
for Apatow, but I have faith Rudd
and Mann will elevate the mate-
rial, bringing warmth, insight and
hopefully a third act that doesnt
wear out a good premise.
Amour, Austrian director
Michael Hanekes austere medita-
tion on age and memory, finds
a couple at the opposing end of
lifes spectrum. Georges (Jean-
Louis Trintignant) and Anne
(Emmanuelle Riva) are comfort-
ably retired music teachers with
a grown daughter living abroad.
One day, Anne suffers a severe
stroke that dredges up years of
regret and buried emotion.
Trintignant, once a staple of the
French New Wave, returned to
film at the request of Haneke and
his performance doubtlessly con-
tributed to Amour winning the
Palme DOr last May at Cannes.
Last but certainly furthest from
least is Quentin Tarantinos cheer-
fully controversial Christmas
present Django Unchained, an
antebellum epic that tracks the
exploits of a fugitive slave named
Django (Jamie Foxx) and the gre-
garious German bounty hunter
(Christoph Waltz) who takes the
young man under his wing. The
search for Djangos kidnapped
wife (Kerry Washington) ulti-
mately leads the mismatched pair
to the plantation of Calvin Candie
(Leonardo DiCaprio), a genteel
fiend with a penchant for making
his slaves fight to the death for his
amusement.
At this years San Diego Comic-
Con, Tarantino made a point of
telling us that Django is loosely
based on the Norse hero Siegfried,
another character consumed with
rescuing his true love from a life
of bondage.
To paraphrase the instantly
quotable DiCaprio character:
You had my curiosity, but now
you have my attention.
In other words, roll on
December!

M
aybe Im imagining
things, but it seems as
if there have been at
least two instances of evangelists
coming onto campus in order to
exercise their freedom of speech
by yelling at students. I in no way
endorse this practice as an accept-
able way of sharing ones religion.
However, I think its important
that students understand their
train of thought as well as an
alternative to yelling back.
Calling passersby whores and
sluts sounds more like harass-
ment than Christian vernacular.
These phrases are sometimes
yelled at students by our good
friend Brother Jed, who has
been to campus more than once.
Chances are he thinks he has a
reason.
In the Kansan on Nov. 8, stu-
dents saw that millennials werent
very religious. Sure, we pray. We
have spirituality, but religion
isnt something our generation
does well. Wouldnt it make
sense for someone interested
in sharing a religion to share it
with the people who dont have
one?
The thing is, Brother Jed and
other evangelists sometimes for-
get 1 Corinthians 13:13: Now
these three remain: faith, hope
and love. But the greatest of these
is love.
Without hope, whats the point?
They constantly tell us that were
all going to hell. We cant be
saved. Were bad, terrible people
without hope. But them? Theyre
going to be in heaven laughing
at us.
And love? Thats one we can
all learn from. Yelling at students
and calling them names is hardly
an effective way of loving any-
one, regardless of your purpose.
In the same breath, yelling back
isnt helping matters any. If their
yelling didnt change your beliefs,
what makes you think your yell-
ing will change theirs?
Christian or not, its standard
practice to ignore people who
arent very bright, mostly mean
and sometimes bullies. If you
dont engage them or give them
an audience, maybe theyll go
away. Its not a bullet proof theory,
but its something, right?
However, I understand that
sometimes these things are too
offensive, backwards and giving
Christians a bad name. Instead of
yelling, instead of singing in their
faces, instead of being obnoxious,
why not do something to brighten
the environment?
In case youre looking for some
ideas for the next time this situ-
ation arises, try getting a group
of friends together to sing on the
opposite side of Wescoe Beach or
to play some music. Hold a dance
party. Bake some cookies for the
students walking by.
Hate shouldnt be something
we engage in or endorse in any
way. Even Mizzou received more
love than these evangelists. Even
if you dont agree, the freedom
of speech protects them in the
same way it protects Fred Phelps,
the Kansan and all of the United
States.
I know its hard to listen to
someone talk about people in
such a negative light. Its also dif-
ficult to watch someone use the
name of God to validate widely
opposed opinions. Regardless,
understanding and finding alter-
natives to engaging in combative
conversations could help keep
things from escalating on Wescoe
and give the power back to the
students. Brighten the environ-
ment, be charming. Spread the
love.

M
any inventions
call claim to being
the most influen-
tial in human history; from
the Internet to the printing
press to penicillin, theyve all
had an enormous effect. But
theres one invention I think
we always overlook in this
Best Thing Ever contest, an
invention that basically created
society. There was a reason
our hunter-gatherer ancestors
decided to set down their bows
and invent farming.
And that reason is beer. And
its currently being taken over by
foreign companies and we are all
letting it happen.
Im not kidding. Around
10,000 years ago, people in the
Middle East settled down and
started planting and harvest-
ing grains instead of roaming
around hunting wild animals.
Sure, these early farmers made
foods like bread, but it wasnt
long before some lucky fellow
accidentally left some grains in a
pot of water for a little too long,
and was probably very pleasantly
surprised with some beer when
he next checked the pot.
You could definitely try and
argue that those ancient people
were farming so they would have,
you know, food to eat. But lets
take a look at human nature. If
someone offered you a loaf of
bread or a six-pack, which would
you take? Dont kid yourself,
youd take the beer every time.
And then theres the fact that
drinking beer was just as impor-
tant as eating. When all of these
ancient peoples started drinking
beer instead of water, less and
less of them got sick because
the alcohol in beer killed harm-
ful bacteria. Everybody wants
less sick people, so drinking
beer became a necessity to keep
people healthy. Drinking beer
kept people safer from diseases
for thousands of years before we
learned how to treat water for
public use.
Jumping to the 1700s, beer
was still the staple drink, espe-
cially in America. Before and
after the revolution, brewing
was one of Americas first small
business industries, and before
Prohibition, there were 4,000
separate breweries nationwide.
Even the founders of the U.S.
such as George Washington and
Thomas Jefferson brewed their
own beer. Its really hard to be
more American than beer, but
more specifically local beer.
You might be wondering why
Ive been telling you all about
beer. Its because beer has been
incredibly influential on the
world scale, it should be revered,
and beer is very important to me.
Also because I think you all are
treating beer like dirt and ignor-
ing its impact on America.
The profits of all of the those
Budweisers with the American
flags youve been drinking, not to
mention Bud Light and Natural
Light, go to Belgium. All of those
Coors, Millers, and Keystones go
to Britain and Canada. Freaking
Canada! Come on people, youre
better than that.
Every time you drink one of
those beers, youre threaten-
ing the jobs of over 100,000 US
craft and local brewers. Here in
Lawrence, we have Free State
Brewing Company, a local com-
pany thats won several awards at
the Great American Beer Festival
over the years, including 2012.
Why dont you buy from them?
Because the major brands are a
little cheaper? Thats like saying,
I enjoy not helping American
workers make money. Its hard
for me to think of something less
American than drinking a Bud.
Seriously though, all it takes
is maybe $1 more for something
local. All Im trying to say is,
dont stay thirsty like the Dos
Equis guy says. Have a beer and
make sure that beer supports
America.

I
f only the CIA could inves-
tigate their military strate-
gies as rigorously as its
leaders sex lives.
As Petraeus does his best
to quietly take the backdoor
out, drone strikes continue to
pound the Middle East, cutting
down innocents and provoking
thousands to join radical mili-
tant groups while accomplishing
virtually nothing. American ter-
rorism exists, and we should put
an end to it.
Picture this: A cross-hair
focuses in on a hazy clump of
buildings, and the operator
twiddles his joystick to find the
perfect shot. The first of two
anti-tank Hellfire missiles opens
a gash in Pakistani countryside.
There is no kill confirmed, all
that can be seen is the shell of
a rural house. Rescuers arrive
on the scene with stretchers,
unarmed. The second missile is
released.
There was a good chance they
were terrorists, right?
The foreboding hum of
unmanned Predator drones
has been heard from Yemen to
the U.S.-Mexican border. The
constant threat of spontaneous
combustion is a hellish reality for
thousands of people throughout
the Middle East, a reality that
has been hidden from public
and legal scrutiny. Many citizens
cant attend the weddings of their
friends in case a single guest is
an American target. The funer-
als of those killed in previous
attacks have then been bombed
in a double-tap reminiscent
of terror methods used by the
likes of Hamas and al-Qaida.
These methods and others
were described in a joint study
released by NYU and Stanford
titled, Living Under Drones.
To be blown apart because twhe
apartment above yours had a
suspected terrorist over for din-
ner the week before. Now thats
democracy in action.
The problem with this men-
tality is that we are treating a
spider bite by scratching the
surface. Every drone strike that
successfully eliminates a handful
of suspected terrorists motivates
a dozen more young men to join
radical group. The Bureau of
Investigative Journalism has con-
firmed that for every single sus-
pected terrorist killed, 49 civil-
ians are sacrificed. Having your
family torn apart in an instant
is not easy to forget. And the
American public is still confused
by anti-Western sentiment? Lets
be honest with ourselves.
Its not as if these attacks are
legal, either. The U.S. is not
officially at war with Pakistan,
so strikes into their territory are
violations of their sovereignty. If
any other nation pulled this kind
of stunt, the response would be
open war. Pakistan has nukes
and a history filled with military
coups, angering them is asking
for a trigger-happy, nuclear orgy.
Conveniently, the constant tur-
bulence in the region is a curtain
to hide behind for the CIA, who
has no obligation to report their
result. Despite investing billions
into a fleet of drones twenty
thousand strong, the kills just
werent coming in. What was
the CIA response? Broaden the
definition of a terrorist to inflate
their success rates. Theyre using
international cheat codes.
But dont flip out quite yet,
the conversation on drone
strikes is happening and youre
invited. Brushed away behind
news of Syria and the Afghan
withdrawal, there are petitions
to impose an immediate ban
on drone strikes, go sign them.
Apply the fervor of past viral
campaigns to this issue and
dont let up on your representa-
tives when they say that theyre
powerless. The CIA has no issue
with researching their leaders
career into the ground, so force
them to re-evaluate their own
methods. The election is over
and done with. This is Obamas
final term, and he can govern
with the gung-ho bravado that
got him elected in the first place.
As the cabinet, CIA and political
spectrum adjust themselves, now
is the perfect time to amend this
unproductive practice.
But hearing how Petraeus
got some was always a bit more
interesting.

PAGE 6 thE UNIVERSItY DAILY KANSAN moNDAY, NoVEmbER 19, 2012
When Kristee Haney, a doctoral
candidate in musical arts at the
University, was in high school, she
began making fun of an opera sing-
er while practicing with her voice
teacher one day. Her teacher was
impressed by what she heard and
told Haney to do it again.
Having previously been involved
in just musical theater, Haney
veered down the path of singing
classical music.
Its all the good stuf of musical
theater: Its the most musical, and
its the most dramatic stories and its
the most glamorous costumes. Its
all of the above in one, said Haney,
who will give her fnal performance
in the Universitys Opera programs
double-bill of Leonard Bernsteins
Arias and Barcarolles and Trou-
ble in Tahiti tonight at 7:30 pm in
the Robert Baustian Teater.
Opera presents a hard challenge
to market to younger generations,
especially since, unlike their par-
ents, the millennial generation
didnt grow up with opera music in
the background of their cartoons.
But as the culture has evolved,
the process of how an opera is per-
formed has changed as well.
In the old days, singers could
just walk out on stage, hurl and
then cough, said Dean Anthony,
the director of the show. And thats
not the way it is anymore. Audienc-
es are much more media oriented
and visually oriented than they
were back 30 years
ago.
By bringing
in Anthony as a
guest director, the
University Opera
program added
someone who em-
phasizes the theat-
rical part of opera,
as Anthony spent his time per-
forming as a character actor, where
his actions were just as important
as his words.
A lot of times in opera, people
do these stock, very melodramatic
gestures that dont make sense, and
hes all about cutting that, fgure
out what youre trying to do, what
youre trying to say and just do it,
said Stephen Dagrosa, a masters
student who performs in Arias and
Barcarolles.
With operas frequently written
in other languages, it can be a chal-
lenge to present their messages to a
younger audience who is not famil-
iar with the language.
Instead, the actors focus on how
they sing the words and the actions
they use to accompany the song to
reach the audience.
Te audience, they dont need
to know what youre singing. Tey
need to feel what youre singing,
said Dominic
Johnson, a mas-
ters student
who is perform-
ing in Trouble
in Tahiti.
Just because
its in another
language doesnt
mean you cant
still appreciate the beauty in it,
Haney said.
By holding the performance in
the intimate setting of the Baus-
tian theater, formerly known as
the Black Box Teater, it gives the
actors an opportunity to reach the
audience on a more personal level.
In the close quarters, actors are
thrust to the forefront, and they
cant hide in the back.
Mark Ferrell, the Director of the
Universitys Opera program, hopes
the smaller setting is less intimidat-
ing for students to come and watch
their peers perform.
What this gives us the opportu-
nity to do, in this intimate setting,
is really challenge the actors to get
their acting chops in line, An-
thony said. Because what you
see in this black box theater is
that we see every tweak, every
twinge because youre sitting right
on top of the performers.
But one of the biggest draws that
the cast of the show hopes will draw
students to the show is the oppor-
tunity to see the event live and in
person, where not even the actors
can be 100 percent certain what
will happen next.
In this age where everything
is on the Internet, everything is
on demand, its really inter-
esting to come and see
something that youre
experiencing now,
with the person
on stage, Haney
said.
You cant take
away the minute
before, Anthony
said. You can only
prepare for the min-
ute afer.

idaho zoo break-in leaves monkey dead
BOISE, Idaho A break-in at
Zoo Boise early Saturday lef a Pa-
tas monkey dead from blunt force
trauma to the head and neck and
police were analyzing blood found
at the scene to determine if it came
from the monkey or one of two hu-
man intruders.
Two males wearing dark clothing
were spotted by a security guard at
4:30 a.m. outside the fence near the
primate exhibit, police said. Both
fed, one of them heading into the
interior of the zoo. Boise police
used a thermal imager in searching
the 11-acre zoo grounds but didnt
fnd the person.
Police said late Saturday that a
grey baseball cap
with a distinctive
skull design found
near the site was
probably lef behind
by one of the intrud-
ers and it might help
in tracking them
down.
Ive been here
for 15 years and
we havent had anything like this
happen, Zoo Boise Director Steve
Burns said. Its unfortunate that
we have to let kids know that some-
thing like this happens. Monkeys
are always among the most favorite
animals here.
Patas monkeys, ofen called the
military monkey, have reddish-
brown fur with grey chin whiskers
and distinctive white moustaches.
Tey are widely distributed across
central Africa south of the Sahara
Desert and can live more than 20
years in captivity.
During a search of the zoo be-
fore dawn, Burns heard a groan
that at frst he thought sounded hu-
man. It turned out to be an injured
Patas monkey barely moving near
the perimeter fence.
Te zoos veterinarian was called,
but the monkey died just before 6
a.m. as it was being examined. A
necropsy later determined that
blunt force trauma was the cause of
death, police said.
An inventory done by zoo staf
found no other animals missing or
injured. Te zoo has one remaining
Patas monkey another male
but its unclear if it will remain at
the zoo or will be sent to another
zoo where it can socialize with oth-
er Patas monkeys, Burns said.
Teyre not endangered in the
wild, but there
are not many
in zoos in the
United States,
he said. Mon-
keys are so-
cial animals.
We only have
one.
Te two Pa-
tas monkeys
came to Zoo Boise about three
years ago from Tampas Lowry Park
Zoo in Florida. Tey had an out-
door enclosure during the summer
in Boise but were moved indoors to
the primate building when colder
weather arrived.
Burns said the monkeys hadnt
been given names, and he didnt
know their ages. Te monkey that
was killed was about 2 feet tall
and weighed about 30 pounds,
Burns said.
Burns declined to discuss details
of the police investigation, includ-
ing how the intruder entered the
primate building, if the monkeys
might have been specifcally target-
ed, or how the monkey ended up
near the perimeter fence. Te zoo
doesnt have surveillance cameras,
he said.
Its very disturbing that some-
one would intentionally break into
the zoo and harm an animal, said
Sgt. Ted Snyder of the Boise Police
Department in a statement. Were
doing all we can to fnd who did
this.
Amy Stahl of Boise Parks & Rec-
reation said the death shocked zoo
workers.
Teyre hit hard, Stahl said.
Tey care for the animals on a dai-
ly basis and they care about them
deeply.
Te zoo was supposed to open at
10 a.m. but remained closed while
police gathered evidence, opening
about 2:30 p.m.

Royce Woolridge, Sophomore Guard
This is a game that Royce Woolridge has
probably been looking forward to for a long
time. Woolridge spent most of his freshman
season at Kansas on the bench. At the end of
the year, he transferred to Washington State
where he sat out for a year and is now eligi-
ble to play. The redshirt sophomore will start
tonight against his former team, and he may
feel like he has something to prove.
Royce Woolridge comes into the game with
a chip on his shoulder and shoots lights out
against his former team. That is probably
the only thing that could stop Kansas from
winning its frst game at the Sprint Center
this season. Even then it seems unlikely.

Im set on four starters, and Im not
even close to being set on the ffth. I
dont know whos better off the bench or
whos better starting. We havent given
Kevin Young a chance to start because
of his hand.
Bill Self on the ffth spot in the
starting lineup
Perry Ellis, freshman forward
After a stellar frst game, Ellis has
been a virtual non-factor for the Jay-
hawks in their last two games. The
freshman will have an opportunity to
show Kansas coach Bill Self that he can
be a more physical player against a team
that has size in the forward position.
Its tough when you have an injury, its
really diffcult when you have a season-
ending injury, and it can be at times devas-
tating when you have a career-ending injury,
and him being a senior, hes fnished here at
WSU.
Washington State coach Ken Bone on
senior guard Mike Ladds injury
Will someone step up and claim the
starting spot at the forward opposite Jeff
Withey? Through three games, neither
Jamari Traylor, Perry Ellis or Kevin Young
have established themselves as the guy
who deserves to be in the starting lineup.
Ellis has had fashes of offensive bril-
liance, and Traylor is looking freakishly
athletic, but they havent done enough to
distinguish themselves.

Elijah Johnson, Senior Guard
For spurts, Johnson has looked like the offensive
leader he has the potential to be, but for the most
part, he has yet to break out of the passive groove
hes played in. He awoke in the second half against
Chattanooga. If he can keep that momentum going,
he and the Kansas offense will be in for a big day.
Travis Releford, Senior Guard
To say that Relefords 3-point shooting this sea-
son has been bad would be an understatement, but
the seniors biggest contribution continues to be on
the defensive end, and as long as he continues to
play tenaciously on defense, his offensive woes will
be forgotten.
Ben McLemore, Freshman Guard
Coming off his 25-point outing, the explosive Mc-
Lemore will be expected to play a major role in the
offense once again, but the other signifcant contri-
bution he can make is on glass down low, where his
rebounding will be an added boost, and an offensive
put-back could ignite the Jayhawks.
Kevin Young, Senior Forward
Young hasnt looked like his previous self since
returning from a broken hand last week. The Jay-
hawks will need him to play with energy from the
get-go as they try to play their frst complete game
of the season.
Jeff Withey, Senior Center
Withey will have to come out and play tough for a
whole game defensively against Washington State,
as he will be charged with shutting down their lead-
ing returning scorer from last season, 6-foot-10-
inch Brock Motum.

Kansas (2-1) enters the CBE clas-
sic still trying to fgure out which piece
of the puzzle fts where and what each
players role will be. The offense has
been particularly inconsistent, looking
at times like a well-oiled unit and at
other times like fve people who have
never played together before.
Washington State (2-1) is a team that
is trying to develop chemistry in these early
season games, as they have added eight
newcomers to the team this season. In the
Cougars most recent attempt, they did not
fare so well, losing 56-58 to Pepperdine, a
team that was 0-2 going into the game. The
media that cover the Pac 12 ranked WSU
near the bottom of the league this season at
No. 10. Senior guard Mike Ladd recently tore
a ligament in his right thumb, which could
end his college career.

DaVonte Lacy, Sophomore Guard
Lacy was a Pac 12 All-Freshmen honorable mention
last season. As a sophomore, he will be depended upon
to score points. Last season, Lacy averaged 8.5 points
per game. This season, he has averaged 11.3 ppg after
three games. Lacy has quick hands, and creating turn-
overs is one of the strengths of his game.
Royce Woolridge, Sophomore Guard
Woolridge is a bit of a combo guard, and WSU will
need him to handle the ball at times. In his one year at
Kansas, Woolridge played in 16 games and played 2.8
minutes per game. He has a much more important role
at WSU and will need to have a big game for the Cougars
to compete with the Jayhawks.
Dexter Kernich-Drew, Sophomore Guard
Kernich-Drew may get the start in place of Mike Ladd,
the senior who is out for the season with a torn ligament
in his thumb. WSU does not have many experienced
players on their roster. Kernich-Drew is one of the few
guards with experience that could replace Ladd. Sopho-
more Brett Kingma, a transfer from Oregon, is another
option at this spot in the Cougar starting line-up.
DJ Shelton, Junior Forward
Shelton is a 6-foot-10-inch redshirt junior with one
year of Division I experience. He has been an important
piece of the WSU team this season as the teams leading
rebounder, but only had four rebounds against Pepper-
dine. The Cougars cant get dominated on the boards by
Kansas if they are going to compete, and they will need
Shelton to do his part.
Brock Motum, Senior Forward
Motum is 6-foot-10-inch forward from Brisbane, Aus-
tralia. Last season was the break-out year for Motum:
He went from being ffth on his team in scoring with 7.6
points per game in his sophomore season to being the
top scorer in the Pac 12 with 18 ppg. Motum was named
the Most Improved Player in the Pac 12. He had a rough
game on Friday against Pepperdine, though, scoring 15
points, shooting 4-13 from the feld.

When No. 25 Kansas came out
of halftime trailing for the first
time this season, the team relied on
senior forward Carolyn Davis.
In the 64-58 Kansas victory
against the Wake Forest
Demon Deacons, Davis
showed why she has been
mentioned in preseason
watch lists. Davis had
16 of her team-high 22
points in the second half.
It was frustrating
being down at half. We
talked about how they were
going to play in the first half, and
there was a lot of assignments
we messed up, Davis said. We
werent rebounding as well as we
could have. We werent being as
aggressive as I thought we could
be. I wanted to come out the sec-
ond half and set that tone.
Davis was assisted by junior for-
ward Tania Jackson, who got her
first start of the season. In the game
against SE Missouri State
on Wednesday, Jackson
came off the bench as a
huge spark. She went for
12 points and 13 rebounds
to help the Jayhawks
defeat the Redhawks.
Jacksons play was no
different Sunday evening,
as she put up 13 points and
nine rebounds.
Jackson is known as a high-ener-
gy player, but its always a challenge
for bench players to bring the same
intensity as starters.
Just to come off the bat with
energy and do what I do coming
off the bench: start with energy
and finish with energy, Jackson
said. When I come off the bench,
Im excited because Im going into
the game and to give energy to the
team. But its different when you
start, and you have to start and
finish.
For the third consecutive game,
the Jayhawks couldnt find the bot-
tom of the net with consistency.
They finished shooting just 37.5
percent, and senior guard Monica
Engelman shot just more than 18
percent. Henrickson isnt worried
about her senior or any other play-
er who is struggling shooting, but
she does have to find a way to get
them out of their slump.
You have to shoot yourself out
of it, Henrickson said. You shot
your way into it, and you have to
shoot yourself out of
it. They need to get
some extra shots up
and get some confi-
dence. The heart rate
should drop a little
bit and think this one
is going in.
As the shot clock
was winding down
late in the second half,
senior point guard Angel Goodrich
hit a runner to give the Jayhawks a
three-point lead. Promptly, sopho-
more guard Natalie Knight had a
steal and a layup that would even-
tually seal the fate of the Demon
Deacons.
Kansas coach Bonnie Henrickson
said that Goodrichs shot was the
worst look and the only one that
fell.
Goodrich
finished the
game with 13
points and
three assists.
Knight added
six points
and seven
rebounds.
Wi nni ng
in the last minute might have its
benefits, but Henrickson wants
to figure out why the Jayhawks
were in that situation against Wake
Forest.
Theres tremendous value
in winning a game like that,
Henrickson said. Certainly we
need to address why were in a
game like that.
Like Henrickson, the players
believe a tough home win will help
the team in the long run, but its
in these games when the chemis-
try and unity of the team comes
together.
I think its definitely going to
help us, to play tight games like
this and come together as a team,
Jackson said. Thats what we did
today at half. We came together
and said we got this and calm
down.

Playing in Fort Worth, Texas for
the frst time ever, the Kansas vol-
leyball team made no plans to stick
around any longer than it had to,
dispatching the Texas Christian
Horned Frogs in three sets Satur-
day.
Freshman outside hitter Tiana
Dockery reached 10 kills for the
frst time since Oct. 10 against
Oklahoma, while redshirt junior
middle blocker Caroline Jarmoc
added 11 kills. Te duo committed
only fve attack errors during the
match.
It felt really good to get back in
the groove of things because for a
while there, I kind of hit a rut and
wasnt really executing the way
that I was before, Dockery said.
I kind of relaxed a little bit and
clamped myself down so I wasnt so
stressed.
Dockery had seen her role on
the team go from ofensive to de-
fensive afer sophomore outside
hitter Chelsea Albers entered the
Jayhawk lineup midway through
the season once she overcame early
season health setbacks.
Coach Ray Bechard said he de-
cided to rely heavily on Dockery
instead of redshirt junior Catherine
Carmichael against TCU because
of Dockerys defense. But Dock-
erys biggest contributions actually
came on ofense, and she paced the
Jayhawks in their 25-18 frst set vic-
tory with four kills.
Carmichael ended with a nega-
tive attack percentage in three of
the Jayhawks previous four match-
es, so Dockerys ofensive outburst
helped keep her on the court.
Dockerys been practicing well,
and weve given Carmichael, Mc-
Clinton and Dockery all time,
Bechard said. We thought today
some of the things were doing de-
fensively would highlight some of
Dockerys talent. Cathy would have
done well today. We just settled on
Dockery today.
TCUs setter, Megan Munce, en-
tered the match second in the Big
12 with .42 aces per set. But Kan-
sas kept her from recording an ace,
which also occurred when the two
teams met earlier this season in
Lawrence.
TCU only managed one ace on
Saturday while committing four
service errors. Te Jayhawks netted
two aces apiece from Jarmoc and
junior setter Erin McNorton, while
committing only three service er-
rors as a team.
I dont think they really ever
could get into system like we could,
and we were almost always in-
system I felt like, McNorton said.
Our passers did really well. Not
only were we digging, but all our
passes I thought were to target on
serve-receive.
Te Jayhawks swept both match-
es they played this week, but on
Wednesday, Kansas needed two ex-
tended set victories to earn a sweep
against Oklahoma.
On Saturday, however, Kansas
won every set by at least seven
points, using runs of 11-2, 15-4 and
8-3 to break each set wide open.
Behind McNortons 34 assists on
Saturday, the Jayhawks managed to
record 45 kills against 13 attack er-
rors, while holding TCU to 32 kills
and forcing them into 17 errors.
Bechard said the Jayhawks goal
was to hit at a .275 percentage for
the match, while holding TCU to
below .200. Although TCU out-
blocked Kansas 6-3, the Jayhawks
front line was able to get touches on
many of the Horned Frogs attack.
Tis slowed the ball down for the
Jayhawks passers, helping them to
get in-system and execute their at-
tack. Kansas outdug TCU 50-41,
which negated the Horned Frogs
slight blocking advantage.
We didnt have a single block
at the break, but our back row was
saying, Hey, you guys are getting
a ton of touches, Bechard said. I
think that was a key that we dug
50, but we touched a ton of balls
of our block that we were able to
transition kill.
Te victory moved Kansas to
23-6 overall and 11-4 in the con-
ference, ensuring the team will
fnish at least third in the Big 12.
Iowa State is holding onto second
place by half a match with an 11-3
record. Kansas victory gives it the
most wins in a season since the
1991 team fnished 25-10.
Te Jayhawks have two matches
remaining in the regular season.
Tey host Saint Louis at 6:30 p.m.
Wednesday in Allen Fieldhouse,
which is where Kansas will play if it
is selected to host NCAA Tourna-
ment matches.

T
his past weekend was rough for foot-
ball fans in Kansas: Te Jayhawks
lost to the Iowa State Cyclones in a
blowout on Senior Day, Kansas State lost its
chance at a perfect season and likely a trip
to the National Championship game and the
Chiefs continued their historically bad sea-
son with a 28-6 loss at home.
Still there is great reason for optimism, at
least for the college football fans in Kansas.
In Lawrence, Charlie Weis Jayhawks have
seen drastic improvements from last season
despite winning fewer games. With another
year to assemble a team and get to know
his players, Weis should be in a position to
make Kansas relevant again in the Big 12.
Even this season, it felt like Kansas was
less of a pushover and an easy win for many
opponents. Walking to the game against
Iowa State on Saturday night, a Cyclones
fan told me he was nervous for the game
and thought the Jayhawks could give them
trouble. Tis is not something you would
have heard a year ago.
In Manhattan, Bill Snyder has built an elite
program that could fnd itself in position to
compete for a National Championship again
in the near future. Te Wildcats will be able
to contend with Texas and Oklahoma to win
Big 12 championships and recruit top talent
away from the Sooners and Longhorns.
Te Chiefs are still a mess, but college
football in Kansas is on the rise, and should
make football season more bearable in Kan-
sas.
MCLEMorE Jayhawk MVP So far
Tis years basketball season is of to a
start very reminiscent of last years. Te of-
fense has been sluggish at times, and turn-
overs have made Jayhawk fans uneasy in the
frst three games of the regular season.
Te Jayhawks are 2-1 with their loss com-
ing against a strong Michigan State Spartans
team in Atlanta at the Champions Classic,
the same tournament where Kansas lost to
Kentucky last year.
In the two victories for Kansas, fans at
Allen Fieldhouse groaned as they watched
sloppy play and limited half court ofense
for much of the frst half of both games.
But in the end, Kansas was able to pull away
thanks in large part to red shirt freshman
Ben McLemore.
McLemore scored 25 points for the Jay-
hawks with 8 rebounds and 3 assists in the
victory over Chattanooga Tursday. Mc-
Lemore showcased his explosive speed and
leaping ability on several alley-oop dunks
along with his shooting prowess as he was
able to knock down open jump shots from
range.
McLemore improved in each game as he
scored nine points in the opener against
Southeast Missouri State, and 14 against
Michigan State, before exploding for 25
points against Chattanooga.
On top of his scoring ability, McLemore
has shown he is a multidimensional player,
as he is averaging over seven rebounds and
three assists per game. Expect McLemore to
be the focal point of Bill Self s ofense during
end-of-game situations all season long.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. An
eerie silence descended over
Arrowhead Stadium midway
through the second half Sunday,
when the Kansas City Chiefs were
well on their way to their seventh
straight defeat.
It was almost like a funeral,
right down to the fans wearing
black.
Cincinnati certainly played
its part in casting the pall over
the venue, stuffing the Chiefs
inept offense and shredding their
defense in a 28-6 victory that
got the Bengals back into playoff
contention while prolonging the
misery in Kansas City at least one
more week.
We arent babies. We know
that when we arent winning, fans
are going to get mad, Chiefs cor-
nerback Brandon Flowers said.
Weve got to find a way to get
this thing turned around.
Theyve been trying in vain for
weeks.
Andy Dalton threw for 230
yards and accounted for three
touchdowns, A.J. Green caught
six passes for 91 yards and a
score, and BenJarvus Green-Ellis
had 101 yards and a touchdown
as the Bengals (5-5) won their
second straight following their
own four-game losing streak.
Mohamed Sanu also had a
touchdown catch as the Bengals
(5-5), suddenly back in the post-
season hunt, prepare to play four
straight against teams that began
the day with losing records.
None of them is as bad as the
Chiefs, though.
Jamaal Charles had 87 yards
rushing for Kansas City (1-9),
but that was the only highlight
for a team whose lone victory this
year required a franchise-record
18-point comeback.
The Chiefs once-raucous home
was only about half-full most of
the game, and a good portion
of those who showed up were
dressed in black a grass roots
effort organized by angry fans
who were mourning another
lost season in an attempt to pres-
sure team ownership to make
changes.
Once again, an airplane towed
a banner calling for general man-
ager Scott Pioli to be fired.
Everyone in this building is
frustrated. We dont want to go
out and perform like that, said
Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel,
who was benched at halftime in
favor of Brady Quinn. We dont
want to lose like that. We want
to go out and compete and win
games.
The Chiefs performance on
the field wasnt much different
than the rest of the year, though,
and now the injuries are piling up.
Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe hurt
his neck and right tackle Branden
Albert hurt his back, and coach
Romeo Crennel said hes not sure
of the status of either one.
As if the Bengals werent just
fine when the Chiefs had their
full complement of players.
We knew this was going to
be a grind, Cincinnati coach
Marvin Lewis said, though it
seemed more like a walk in the
park to the scattered groups of
fans watching from the stands.
We wanted to jump on them
early, and being aggressive was
what we needed to do, Dalton
said.

GLASS hALf fuLL
Tony Pierson showed some great
vision while cutting up the feld on a
called fea-ficker and creating room for
a 55-yard touchdown run. Pierson was
supposed to hand the ball off to Crist,
but once he saw Crist was covered, he
decided to make his own play.

GLASS hALf EmpTy
This was supposed to be the game
that Kansas won with a heavy run at-
tack, solid defense and great fan sup-
port. Only one of those factors showed
up, and it was gone by halftime.
GOOd, BAd Or JuST pLAIn
STupId
Kansas came out for warm-ups
sporting its usual blue shirts, white
pants uniforms. When the team went
back to the locker room for fnal prepa-
rations, its lockers were lined with all-
new black-on-black jerseys along with
a white helmet featuring a Jayhawk
logo. none of the players knew they
were getting the new gear.
Verdict: Awesome
dELAy Of ThE GAmE
Early in the game, it seemed as
though every play was under review.
Yes, there were some iffy plays, but
you would have thought the refs were
suffering from major glaucoma. Fortu-
nately, that phase ended quickly.
GAmE BALL
Tony Pierson gets the honors this
week. His 55-yard touchdown run
showed his creativity, but as Weis not-
ed, nothing showed Piersons character
quite like his hustle on a two point con-
version that ISU intercepted. Pierson
ran from the back of the end zone to
about the Kansas 15-yard line to stop
the Cyclones from scoring.
LOOKInG AhEAd
The Jayhawks will take some time off
with a bye this week. Kansas will return
to action on December 1, in Morgan-
town, West Virginia, against a potent
Mountaineer offense led by quarterback
Geno Smith. I would guess defensive
coordinator Dave Campo needs the ex-
tra time as much as anyone.
fInAL ThOuGhT:
Kansas had invested so much into
this game. The PR machine was churn-
ing out whatever it could to get fans
in the seats, and the Jayhawks looked
like they were about to turn the corner
until everything imploded. after
convincing the fans to come back to
games, they might not return until the
Jayhawks have more than the prospect
of a win. Theyll need to see proof it can
happen.

Nothing good came from the Jayhawks decision to abandon the run game. Granted
Iowa State had taken a ghastly lead, but Kansas is not built to throw the ball. Dayne
Crist came in to prove otherwise, but poor passing and dreadful receiving stopped the
offense from moving the ball.

ron Doherty averaged 38 yards per punt, and Nick Prolago connected on his only

bright spot is Bradley mcDougald, who seems to make every tackle on special teams.

Earlier in the year, Kansas coach Charlie Weis said he wouldnt play musical quar-
terbacks. That wasnt the case Saturday. James Sims, Tony Pierson, Kale Pick, Dayne
Crist and michael Cummings all received snaps at one point, but none worked too
well. And fnally, a Big 12 defense fgured out the Jayhawks run game.
Grade: D+
heres what may be most shocking: Iowa State simplifed its offense when
backup Sam richardson took over as quarterback. The Jayhawks were still baffed.
Usually Kansas has trouble stopping the big play, but on Saturday, the team had
trouble stopping most plays, as ISU racked up 548 yards on offense.

When youre down 38-17 at halftime, are you going to blame them, or are you

support from Weis, fans motivates players
Kansas coach Charlie Weis
supported his players through
thick and thin in his first year in
Lawrence.
He dedicated all of last week
to the seniors and did as much as
he could to promote senior night
and get fans to attend the game.
The seniors knew what Weis had
done all week. However, there
was one more thing Weis had to
offer his seniors.
The players went to the locker
room after pregame warmups and
were astounded to discover black
jerseys waiting to be worn. It was
one last motivational tool by Weis
to add excitement for the players,
the seniors specifically.
The players hoped that Saturday
night would be the night where
theyd have a different uniform to
put on. But at some point before
the game, the players came to the
conclusion that it would not hap-
pen. The players already sported
their traditional blue on white
home attire, only to find out right
before the game that theyd be
going with a black-on-black attire
with white helmets containing a
Jayhawk.
We actually talked before the
game about wearing our throw-
backs, said offensive guard
Duane Zlatnik. We walked in
after our pregame meal and were
all kind of disappointed that we
didnt have anything. Then we
went out, warmed up, and did
our Senior Day thing. When we
walked back into the locker room
I was one of the first ones in
there, and we were all pumped.
Weis wanted to help the seniors
go out on a positive note after all
they had gone through, as most
of them expe-
rienced three
different head
coaches during
their time as a
Jayhawk. Many
players felt the
emotional vibe
during the pre-
game ceremo-
nies for senior night. Their fami-
lies waited as the seniors had
their names announced and were
treated to a special video tribute.
Although the senior night fes-
tivities didnt translate to a win
Saturday night, Weis, who did
not inform any player nor any
assistant coach about the jerseys,
has no regrets for what he did for
the seniors all week.
I wanted to do something spe-
cial for the seniors, he said. It
didnt work, but Ill tell you what
Im always going to be trying
stuff to get something to work.
Ill never stop trying. Ill always
keep trying.
Quarterback Dayne Crist,
who played under Weis in Notre
Dame before the two reunited in
Kansas, said that his attempt to
make the seniors feel good was
well received. Crist is not sur-
prised by what Weis did for the
seniors and will always appreciate
that about him.
Eve r y t hi ng
he does is from
the heart, Crist
said. As players,
it is something
that we felt great
about knowing
that he cared
enough about
us to make this
week about the seniors. He didnt
have to do things, like buy the
extra seats for the seniors. But he
did and that just speaks volumes
about the type of guy he is and
the type of commitment he has to
his players.
This years senior class learned
that not everything would go their
way. The multiple head coaching
changes made is an indication of
what the team went through.
Even though he knew most
of the seniors for less than a
year, Weis had a big influence on
the players lives. Safety Bradley
McDougald even approached
Weis before the game and thanked
him for everything that he did for
Kansas this season.
This year, McDougald and his
teammates noticed a sign in the
student section each game that
read We still believe. It helped
inspire McDougald and the rest
of the seniors to not give up
on one another. McDougald and
defensive end Toben Opurum
walked off the field together fol-
lowing Saturdays loss while the
senior video tribute was played
one last time.
McDougald told Opurum that
even though they may have lost
many games, a select few could
do what theyve done and deal
with the obstacles and challenges
they were faced with.
To come back and battle every
week, day in and day out, it shows
our mentality and you can knock
us down, McDougald said. But
were going to get up every time.
Knowing that I got guys like that
who are willing to do it with me,
week in and week out, I wouldnt
trade it for the world.

Bowl-hungry Cyclones dominate Jayhawks with simple strategy on senior night
F
our years ago, the Kansas foot-
ball seniors arrived on cam-
pus. The players immediately
bonded as bewildered freshmen and
built a brotherhood with teammates.
They watched the then-seniors play
their last football game at Memorial
Stadium.
On Saturday, those same players
walked onto the field and played
their last home football game.
Despite nontraditional black uni-
forms and a strong first quarter,
Kansas lost 51-23 to Iowa State.
Yes, the record stands at 1-10 on
the season with only one game left,
but this senior class deserves major
recognition for the many bumps in
the road.
Most of these seniors arrived in
2009, playing for former coach Mark
Mangino. Shortly after, Mangino
was fired, and coach Turner Gill
stepped onto the scene for two short
years. And after Gills firing, Charlie
Weis is now at the helm.
All of those coaching changes
made it difficult on these players.
The seniors easily could have trans-
ferred to a different university or
quit.
Instead, most stayed and contin-
ued to fight for the University.
If coaching changes werent
enough, some players switched
positions. Wide receiver Kale Pick
switched to quarterback. Defensive
end Toben Opurum bulked up
for his new position after being
a running back. Safety Bradley
McDougald flipped to defense after
being a wide receiver.
There are many more players with
switches, but those players all could
have left. Instead, they continued
to fight.
Even injuries hurt these seniors
along the way. Offensive lineman
Trevor Marrongelli suffered a sea-
son-ending leg injury during his
sophomore year. Wide receiver
Daymond Patterson played against
McNeese State and didnt play for
the rest of last season.
Still, after the scrapes, strained
muscles and broken bones, they con-
tinued to push through the pain.
Most of these players barely have
10 or more victories in their four-to-
five-year tenure. In the Big 12, some
players only have two conference
victories.
Though the win-loss column
might be awful, this senior class suc-
ceeded in different ways.
Offensive lineman Tanner
Hawkinson set a Kansas record with
his 47th consecutive start. He also
tied the Kansas all-time start record
of 47. Wide receiver D.J. Beshears
passed the 2,000-yard mark for
career kick return yards with 2,059,
which is second all-time. Beshears
only needs 17 yards to break the
career record.
The seniors may not have the best
record at Kansas, but the things that
they do should be noted. Whether
its battling back from a season inju-
ry or adjusting to coaches, these
seniors have put in the time and
work to represent the University.
One victory this season could eas-
ily be five, and the resiliency and
ability to compete was always there.
The seniors never gave up.
Thank you, seniors. Be proud of
your years of hard work for the pro-
gram and the University.
Edited by Christy Khamphilay
It was supposed to be the game
where the Kansas football program
turned the corner.
After all, Kansas coach Charlie
Weis had offered to buy tickets for
any student that didnt have one.
And the Jayhawks had just come so
close to beating a ranked Texas Tech
team on the road. And it was senior
night. This had to be the moment
where it all clicked for the Jayhawks,
didnt it?
It would have been poetry to beat
the school that Kansas topped in
2009 to start a 5-0 record the last
win before the program crumbled.
Instead, Iowa State cruised to a
51-23 victory. The Cyclones couldnt
have been less phased by the crowd
of 41,608 at Memorial Stadium or
the black on black uniforms that
Weis surprised the team and fans
with. We may never see those uni-
forms again.
Going out early and feeling all
that emotion and getting ready to
run out on the field, there was defi-
nitely a lot of adrenaline, for the
first time all year, left tackle Tanner
Hawkinson said.
What the Jayhawks werent ready
for was a 5-5 Iowa State team des-
perate to reach a bowl game a
win against Kansas assured one.
The Cyclones were trying any-
thing to get there. Starting quar-
terback Steele Jantz, who had been
inconsistent all year, was yanked
early in the first quarter after he
fumbled on ISUs first possession
and went three and out on his sec-
ond drive.
Taking over for Jantz was Sam
Richardson, a freshman who had
yet to throw a pass all year and was
low enough on the depth chart that
Weis didnt even spend anytime pre-
paring for him. Weis later said that
he should have.
All Richardson did was complete
23 of 27 passes for 250 yards and
four touchdowns.
They were more simple than
theyve been on tape, Weis said.
Theyd been quite exotic in the last
bunch of weeks with formations.
They just lined up and went right
after us and did it very well.
Perhaps that was the biggest dif-
ference between the two teams on
Saturday. Iowa State was scarily sim-
ple, and Kansas was catastrophically
complex.
The Jayhawks had five different
players take snaps: starting quarter-
back Michael Cummings, relegated
back-up quarterback Dayne Crist,
running backs Tony Pierson and
James Sims and wide receiver Kale
Pick who was recruited as a quar-
terback. None of them sufficiently
paid off.
We had enough confidence that
Iowa State would try to load up
front, Weis said of putting Crist
back in. The next thing were going
to have to do is try to throw behind
them.
Sims snapped his school record-
setting streak of six straight games
with a hundred yards rushing fin-
ishing with just 81. Crist found 156
yards and a touchdown through
the air, but only completed 9 of 20
passes with an interception. And
Tony Piersons speed was only show-
cased on one play, a 55-yard run that
was supposed to be a flea flicker
until Pierson found a seam and ran
straight up the middle untouched to
the end zone.
And Richardson? He was firing
bombs left and right, picking apart
a defense that had been solid for
Kansas the vast majority of the sea-
son.
Yet it wasnt being down 38-17 at
halftime that sunk the Jayhawks; it
was the next Iowa State score after
it, a 51-yard field goal that had no
trouble getting past the uprights.
Its the small things like that,
safety Bradley McDougald said.
Special teams count, so when a
guy walks up and punches in a
51-yarder, their team takes notice of
that and gives them energy we didnt
need them to have.
It became a shootout no Jayhawk
wanted to be a part of. This Kansas
team is built on running the ball and
playing bend-dont-break defense.
We are not a 51-point offense,
Weis said. I thought it would be in
the 20s. I thought they were going to
run it, and we were going to run it.
I didnt come to the game expecting
to throw the ball 25 times.
And the fans, the ones that Weis
had worked so hard to get to jump
onto the bandwagon of a 1-9 team,
they were gone by halftime and may
not be coming back until theres a
legitimate reason to.
If I was a fan I wouldnt come
either, McDougald said. All we
know is were going to get things
right and come back to work.

sophomore cornerback JaCorey shepherd defects the ball thrown by iowa state during the match against iowa state Cyclones saturday night nov. 17 at Memorial stadium. Kansas fell to iowa state 51-23.
When the Kansas mens basket-
ball team tips off against Washington
State in the CBE classic at 9 tonight,
it will face for the second time this
season the challenge of guarding
an opposing team with size in the
front court.
The last time the Jayhawks expe-
rienced this was in Atlanta against
Michigan State on Nov. 13, and the
game was the teams first loss. While
Washington State wont be as physical
down low as the Spartans were, they
will still play tough.
Their standing height is real big,
but theyre all pretty skilled, Kansas
coach Bill Self said. They can all step
away from the basket. Their wings
are pretty big. They run an offense
thats very similar to what Frank ran
at K-State.
Senior center Jeff Withey has
found it more difficult to score with-
out Thomas Robinson with him in
the paint. Opposing teams are now
able to key in on him, and this elimi-
nates many easy baskets that Withey
got down low last season.
With Witheys talents better suited
for the defensive side of the floor, the
offense cant get away with the same
strategy they had last season.
Jeff is never going to be a guy you
just throw it to and have him go get
20, Self said. Thats not who he is;
thats not who he was last year. Hes
a guy that needs angles and make
free throws and can get to the free
throw line.
But scoring hasnt come very easily
to the young Jayhawks, and at times,
the offense has fallen stagnant.
To jump-start the offense, Self
wants his team to run the court more.
However, the team is playing slower
than it have in previous years.
By playing slow, the Jayhawks lose
out on the chance to get easy fast-
break baskets.
Offensively, were going a lot slow-
er than in years past because so many
new guys dont know the plays like
the veterans, we can run them in our
sleep, Withey said.
Were not getting anything out of
our secondary break, Self said. The
only thing were getting anything out
of is were running off our defense.
If thats true, then its fine, but lets
guard, lets pressure, and lets create
havoc like we did in the second half
so we get opportunities to score.
In the second half of Kansas game
against Chattanooga on Thursday,
the team started using a hard-nosed
approach to defense in order to get
turnovers and run the floor.
The team still has a long way to go,
but by running the floor, it can begin
to kick-start the offense.
And when the offense starts to flow,
the teams chemistry will improve as a
result.
It showed the last game we
played, sophomore guard Naadir
Tharpe said. If we run up and down
like that, we get easy baskets. Thats
how we go on our runs, and I think
we definitely need to play faster than
how weve been playing.
