NASA awards grant to graduate student
A University graduate student has been granted a three-year, $90,000 fellowship from NASA to develop a new ice-penetrating radar. Theresa Stumpf, a doctoral student in electrical engineering, was awarded the fellowship after writing a six-page proposal that outlined her plans for a radar that can gather better data from ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica to study the effects of climate change on sea levels. Stumpf said being granted the fellowship came as a complete shock. “I thought I had no shot whatsoever,” she said. “Honestly, writing a proposal was the hardest thing I think I’ve ever had to do because you kind of had to know where you were going to go. You’re standing in a place where you feel so lost, and it took a lot of planning and thinking, so it was really challenging.” Although she wrote much of her proposal herself, Stumpf said being awarded the fellowship wouldn’t have happened without the help of the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, where she works. “I really feel completely fortunate and so blessed that I have the support of the center and the faculty and all the other students,” she said. “Everyone’s pooling in on this big research mission, and it’s given me the opportunity to do something really amazing. I don’t think I’d have the opportunity if I had just been writing it as a free agent.” For the fellowship, NASA will give the University a grant to develop an ultrawideband ice sensor while Stumpf develops a wide-flux imagining mode for it. After its completion, the sensor will be flown over Greenland and Antarctica

to gather information from ice-sheets that can allow scientists to more effectively study the effect of climate change on the polar ice sheets and accurately predict future sea levels. Stumpf is hopeful the opportunity to work on a project like this with such a presti-

gious institution will open more doors for her professionally. “Certainly being able to go into the field, you make contacts with people at NASA,” she said. “And for me, I always really wanted to work at a NASA research center as opposed to academia, and I think this

Graduate receives Fulbright scholarship
Chelsea Hochstetler, a recent graduate, has been awarded a Fulbright U.S. Student Program scholarship. Hochstetler will be one of 1,700 people traveling abroad through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program for the 2013-2014 academic year. “It is going to give me the chance to learn so much. It is also quite an honor to be given the opportunity to represent my country,” Hochstetler said. The Fulbright program is the premiere U.S. international educational exchange program funded by the U.S. government and is intended to bolster relations between the U.S. and other countries. Hochstetler will be travelling to Indonesia for the coming year to

The late Stata Norton Ringle and her husband David’s $10 million endowment gift will create student scholarships, support for getting new books and medical manuscripts and maintain current collections at the Clendening History of Medicine Library at KU Medical Center and the Kenneth Spencer Research Library on the Lawrence campus. During her 28-year career at the University, Ringle served as professor emerita of pharmacology, toxicology and therapeutics, professor in the Department of Dietetics and Nutrition and the dean of the School of Health Professions (then the School of Allied Health). In addition to improving the two libraries, the gift will more than double the amount of financial support available for University students pursuing health-related

goals. “It’s a sizable gift that is very impactful, and it also has breadth of uses in terms of supporting students directly and providing special support for library collections,” said Dale Seuferling, president of KU Endowment. “She was an outstanding person, an outstanding dean and an outstanding scientist,” said John Ferraro, professor and chairman of the Department of Hearing and Speech and Associate Dean for Research in the School of Health Professions. Ferraro said Stata was aware of the need for student funding to bring the “best and brightest” into the school’s programs. “It’s an amazingly generous bequeath on their part,” he said. “It showed her conviction for supporting her students and the School of Health Professions.” — Edited by Megan Hinman

Overbearing government limits freedoms
By Wil Kenney
curfews, and radical jingoism so many times that it feels like, in 2013 America, we’re just going through the motions. They were good reads but I’d like to leave that stuff in books. When we talk about political reporting, it’s not simply about having Matt Taibis and Helen Thomases prod the feds every once in a while. It’s about having a community where citizens are allowed to question the actions of their government without being condemned and defamed. It’s happened before with Julian Assange and it’s happening right now with Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning. They start out as citizen heroes, turn into pitiable fools, and end as traitorous bastards who should have stayed silent. Just watch how the media gradually shifts their characterization of Snowden in the coming weeks. Whether or not there are individuals around to expose them, there will always be evil corporations slowly melting our brains with subliminal messaging and candy bars. It wasn’t even all that shocking when the NSA was exposed because it’s the expectation that those in power will abuse it. What won’t be guaranteed is the ability to check and balance those organizations. Washington no longer sees an informed public as a mechanism for a healthy democracy but as a safety concern. If we don’t constantly engage and demand answers from our government, we become a big body of tax cows funding the next weapon to end all wars. Speaking up is just getting in the way. Free speech is dangerous. Liberties and rights are secondary. Moo. I think the worst part is that I don’t really know what to do. I’m not prepared to break into Capitol Hill, riffle through cabinets of documents stamped “CONFIDENTIAL”, and expose the Men In Black as being real. I don’t even know where to begin with Manning and Snowden. It’s so far over all of our heads that the best we can do is wring our hands and stutter about the First Amendment. I’m still not sure if I want to be a journalist. The survival rate is diving, there was never any money in it to begin with, and it seems that people these days just draw the curtains and watch Netflix. Maybe I’ll tough it out. I may not know what to do but I do know that I’m not content with “Life, Certain Liberties, and a Closely Monitored Pursuit of Government-Approved Happiness.” Kenney is a sophomore from Leawood.

don’t think I want to be a journalist. Free speech is becoming less a right and more a privilege. Questioning the government makes you a liability and a target, and that makes me incredibly uncomfortable. I think it’s telling that as I sat down to write this column there was this nagging fear in the back of my mind saying that if this piece is seen by the wrong person or in the wrong context, I could be put on a list. It would be the kind of list that deters employers or puts a big red flag by my name at the airport. I’m not saying I’m some heroic activist or dissident for writing this. I’m saying that an attitude of fear for a watchful and suspicious government is already growing. And I’m having a terrifying sense of déjà vu. Terrifying because I’ve read this all before in “1984” and “Brave New World” and every other dystopian knock-off from the last fifty years.

Stop getting lied to, start asking questions

hour burns hundreds of calories by “sweating it out.” Sounds scientific to me! I can drink diet soda while I’m on a diet because diet is in the name, and it has no sugar. Cheers! Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. Water isn’t a filter. Sweating doesn’t burn calories. A lack of sugar doesn’t mean there aren’t other harmful substitutes. Indeed, there is a glaring disconnect between how these claims sound with their legitimacy. We are too easily swayed by what sounds like a plausible, scientific explanation. Because our threshold for credible scientific evidence is so low, we never think to question “conventional wisdom.” This is first modern day application of the folktale mentioned above – those who don’t ask questions out of instinct. The second group of people refuse to do so based on a much more sinister social construct. Sometimes, we smell a sham before it’s even uttered, but we fail to vocalize. We collude with it, like the subjects of the emperor, in order to save face. This mostly occurs when people are pressured into risky behaviors under the assumption that it is safe, usually based on some asinine explanation. Resisting peer pressure is hard enough, and can be nearly impossibly to fight when the individual looks like the uninformed one for passing on the opportunity. People have been indoctrinated into a society that looks upon curiosity and skepticism with disdain and intolerance. But there is a way out of the morass. The reason misnomers maintain their powerful vise-grip on your thought is simply due to a lack of information. Therefor, I suggest that people ask more questions. A simple Google search (or Google Scholar search for the extremely skeptical/paranoid) will yield more than enough information to make an informed decision. However, the problem is, when you bear the burden of this paradigm, you quickly will become a jaded, bitter husk of your naïve self. You will realize that you are living and breathing in half-truths, double speak, and harebrained explanations. But nonetheless, this lifestyle is holistically edifying. Remember, because lying is a cooperative act, you have the option not to participate. If you arm yourself with information and a skeptical lens to what you hear, you will shift the power dynamic in your favor and create an atmosphere where people know that you want nothing but the truth.

here was once an Emperor who was promised a suit by two swindlers that was of such high quality it was invisible to those unfit for their jobs. As one might expect, the subjects of the Emperor pretend to see it to save face. Finally, a child, too young to realize the charade, loudly proclaims ‘he isn’t wearing anything at all!’ The Emperor’s New Clothes is one of the most ubiquitous pieces of social commentary still applicable in the modern day. The story highlights two problems facing society: people who don’t ask questions, and those who refuse to do it to save face. We face a similar problem it today’s society. As deception expert Pamela Meyer describes, ‘Lying is a cooperative act. You were lied to because you agreed to get lied to.’ Indeed, far too many people fail to question the claims they here by word of mouth.

Every summer has a story
Will your fling live through the fall or is it time to move on?
it’s time to end it, don’t beat around the bush. There are a couple of central reasons why summer flings end: the inconvenience of a busy fall schedule, the appeal of having no commitment

“Summer dreams, ripped at the seams”

Emma legualt
editor@kansan.com Bright and early on the first day of the fall semester, an alarm clock ringtone signals the end of a summer free of commitment. Groggily, you get up and sit through the first English lecture. Thirty minutes into class, a text comes in — it’s that person you spent the lazy summer days and electric nights with. However, there’s a decision to be made before you hit reply: should the romance fade faster than a summer tan? Or could you see the two of you still snuggling up, sharing a peppermint latte come winter? If the fling is finished: If you’ve decided that it was the delirious heat of the sun that turned you into a starstruck, love-crazed teenager for the past two months and

“A fling is something you jump into without thinking about it and not really having an expectation...
Amy Schroeder sophomore from Colby

and the emotional rollercoaster that comes with having a relationship. Amy Schroeder, a sophomore from Colby, found herself saying “see ya” to a summer romance because she had a gut feeling going into the school year that it wasn’t going to turn into anything else.

“A fling is something you jump into without thinking about it and not really having an expectation about, knowing it’s most likely not going to last,” she said. The key is to let them down easy, but stick to your guns. Schroeder said she started hanging out less and stopped communicating less to get the point across. According to an article by Angela Kovalyak on CenegageBrain. com, there are five steps to ending a summer relationship: spend less time together, don’t make future plans, don’t trade phone numbers or contact info at the end of the summer, know when the right time to end it is and be honest. If the fling becomes a thing: A year later, Schroeder was at

Districts argue cuts to education are unconstitutional
Matt Johnson
editor@kansan.com Over the next two years, Kansas schools will receive $1.23 billion less in state aid than the amount mandated by existing statutes. After scrambling to fund basic programs and pay for their personnel over the past few years, a number of school districts have sued the legislature, arguing that such a massive budget shortfall violates the state constitution. Lawsuits of this kind are nothing new in Kansas. In a 2005 case, the Kansas Supreme Court reversed a state court’s 2001 decision (Montoy v. Kansas) by ruling that education funding levels were unacceptable. The court required the legislature to redress the problem by increasing funding to Kansas public schools. Although this lead to a temporary spike in funding, it quickly diminished again. According to the current statute set by the Montoy case, the base state aid per-pupil should be $4,492, but the state has only budgeted $3,838 per-pupil for 2014 and $3,852 per-pupil for 2015. Gannon v. Kansas is the most recent lawsuit that includes a number of school districts as plaintiffs. It was heard by a Shawnee County court in January, and the ruling reaffirmed the minimum of $4,492 per student. However, the state appealed the case, which will now be heard by the Kansas Supreme Court. A decision is expected in December. Even if the Kansas Supreme Court rules in favor of the school districts, there remains the question of enforcement. The court ordered the legislature to provide $4,492 per student in 2005, but this responsibility was simply side-stepped in subsequent years. The superintendent of USD 305, William Hall, considers the actual dispersion of funds a troubling issue hanging over the new lawsuit. “I expect the court will say the legislature is not fulfilling its constitutional requirement to adequately fund schools, and it will order the legislature to do so,” he said, “Still, I’ve heard some legislators make the comment that they expect to lose, but go on to say, ‘Good luck trying to enforce it.’ So, I think we’re going to see a lot of friction between the legislature and the courts as a result of this.” There has been a steady decline in state funding since 2006, and a sharp decline since 2009. “This is not new for us,” said Julie Boyle, communications director for USD 497, “Since 2005, we’ve seen reductions. But they told us this legislative session that our funding level would be the same for the next two years.” And although funding will, if the current budget remains in place, remain unchanged in 2014 and 2015, schools have already been forced to contend with insufficient funds in unorthodox ways. Boyle notes one of the most worrying methods being employed across the state. “You see a lot of districts — including us — relying on contingency reserve funds. We’re taking money from our emergency funds and using it for things that are ongoing. So, you see a lot of districts using those funds for salaries and ongoing costs when that’s really not what they’re for. If you have an emergency need, then you won’t have emergency funds,” she said. Hall has similar concerns. “We had to use a portion of our emergency funds to get through the year. The problem with that is: it’s your savings account. When that money’s gone, it’s gone for good,” he said. As was the case for USD 305, matters deteriorated the most for USD 497 in 2009 as the economy stalled. Boyle lists a series of cuts USD 497 has been forced to make in the last few years. “We had about a 10 percent cut to our general operating fund back in 2009. That turned out to be 4 or 5 million dollars. So, we looked at pretty much everything. We closed some schools, we reduced the number of teachers we had — which meant increasing our class sizes. We weren’t able to give staff the raises that we wanted to, we stopped taking a lot of field trips and cut back on what we provided in terms of transportation, so we’ve had cuts in all areas since 2009,” she said. Hall said USD 305 has tried to implement cost-cutting without sacrificing the quality of education students are receiving. “We’ve tried to do some things that don’t impact what happens in the classroom,” he said, “We’ve downsized information technology, structural assistance, maintenance, custodial and administrative departments.” However, he thinks it’s time for Topeka to honor the statutes set by the courts. “The reality of it is that schools are underfunded. They are not where, by court order, the legislature is supposed to be funding them. They’re 6 or 7 hundred dollars less on the base than they should be,” he said. — Edited by Megan Hinman

a party and called a friend for a ride home. He showed up with his friend, Michael. They hung out that evening, and the next day, which happened to be his birthday, he invited her over. They saw each other through the summer, but when he took Schroeder to dinner two weeks before school started and asked her to the Homecoming dance, she knew this fling was meant to last. And it has — for three years. “When we started hanging out I was like ‘oh he’s cool,’ but I didn’t really expect anything out of it,” Schroeder said. “We’d been in the same school since we were little kids. It was hard to imagine anything would come out of it.”

What made the difference for Schroeder was asking her to the dance, a sign that he was making an effort to fit her in to his future. If you’re wanting to stretch the romance through the fall, winter and spring, Allie Duncan’s article on HerCampus.com offers four tips to turn a fling into a relationship: to make plans to accompany each other to a date party or other event, to be upfront and communicate your feelings, don’t overwhelm yourself or your crush with romantic tunnel vision and don’t panic.

But according to a recent article by USA Today, many light beers have more calories than other drink options. In a 12-ounce serving of Coors Light (a standard can), there are 102 calories. A 12-ounce can of Bud Light contains 110 calories, and the same amount of Amstel Light has 95 calories. A Healthier Margarita 1 1/4 ounces Corzo Silver 2 sprigs (small branch) cilantro 2 slices cucumber 2 slices jalepeno 1 ounce fresh lime juice 2 ounces distilled water 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon sugar 1 lime wheel for garnish.

‘Breaking Bad,’ ‘Web Therapy’ fill last summer weeks
By Kaitlyn Hilgers


s the summer winds down and summer classes come to an end, summer classes are ending, and we’re all trying to take our last few weeks as an opportunity to completely veg out, whether it be at the pool or in front of the TV. If the second option sounds like a bit more fun to you, as it does to me, here are some of the shows that should be on your radar. “Web Therapy” – July 23 (Showtime) Web series-turned-television show, “Web Therapy,” is returning for the fifth season of this uniquely funny show. Starring Lisa Kudrow as a therapist named Fiona Wallace, who

has created a new version of therapy that lasts three minutes, in order to cut out the irrelevant information, and is done completely through iChat. The show cuts between the computer screen of the sessions, or the singular person talking straight at the camera, which creates a different viewing experience for the audiences. Full of guest stars and witty comments, this show is definitely worth a tune in, regardless of whether you have watched any of the other seasons previously. “Broadchurch” – Aug. 7 (BBC America) If you are looking to start a new show that is just beginning, “Broadchurch” may be the best option for you. Over the span of eight episodes, this show will explore a town’s reaction to the death of an 11-year-old boy and how the media, the tragedy, and uncertainty can tear a small town apart. Starring Olivia Colman (“Peep Show”) and David Tennant (“Dr. Who”), this drama promises audiences a tragic

and emotional roller coaster ride, as shown from its success earlier in the UK. “The White Queen” – Aug. 10 (Starz) Starz is debuting perhaps this summer’s only costume drama, the 10-part British drama “The White Queen,” The show is set during the Wars of the Roses and is based off of the novels by Philippa Gregory, and seems to be trying to capture the audiences who are waiting for the return of “Game of Thrones.” While this seems to be much less exciting and, honestly, not as well done, it could be just what the doctor ordered for the viewers who are going through extreme withdrawals. “Breaking Bad” – Aug. 11 (AMC) There was no way that I could not add in the second part of the final season of “Breaking Bad.” Audiences will be able to watch the final eight episodes and finally see what happens to Mr. White and his partner in crime, Jesse Pinkman. While this is not a show I would recommend coming into now, the first four seasons are on Netflix, the difficult part will be finding somewhere to watch the first half of the final season. All you diehard “Breaking Bad” fans, don’t worry ­­ - there are many promises

Big names bring talent to Lawrence, KC
Sarah Noonan
editor@kansan.com Macklemore and Ryan Lewis at Power and Light District The rising hip-hop stars Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are set to perform at the 2013 AT&T MLS All-Star Game at the Power & Light District in downtown Kansas City on July 29. The duo recently released its debut album, “The Heist,” which sent them to the runner-up position on Billboard Hot 200. The album’s single “Thrift Shop” topped a number of charts including the Hot 100. Within a genre full of fronting, beef and bravado, Macklemore’s music is shockingly genuine. From his platinum-selling marriage equality anthem, “Same Love,” to his American slang hit, “Can’t Hold Us,” Macklemore works hard to increase his level of success and personal potential no matter what obstacles stands in his way. The concert starts at 9 p.m. It’s free, but fans will need a ticket to enter. For more information on how to get tickets, visit www.MLSsoccer.com/ allstar. Relient K at the Granada The American rock band Relient K is gearing up for a one-of-a-kind performance at the Granada today. After the release of its newest album, “Collapsible Lung” on July 2, fans have been anticipating the pop-punk bands national tour. Many of its songs are fun, catchy mainstream pop songs with some Christian undertones. Their hits, “Sadie Hawkins Dance,” and “Be My Escape” will have the crowd moving in no time. Lead singer Matt Thiessen, who formed the band in 1998, focuses on finding a balance between a crazy yet emotional performance. Over their career, Relient K has sold more than 2 million records, won two Dove Awards and was nominated for one Grammy. The concert starts at 8 p.m. tonight at the Granada. Tickets are $35. The Postal Service at Midland Theatre A band can spend all the time,

money and effort trying to create the perfect pop-music line-up, but sometimes the stars need to align all on their own. The band, The Postal Service, became something unique through the meaning of its name- the U.S. Postal Service. Lead singer and Washington native, Ben Gibbard, sent recordings back and forth with producer Jimmy Tamorello, to mix exquisitely matched synthetic sounds with natural ones. Their hit single, “Such Great Heights,” from their debut album, “Give Up,” was the beginning of a phenomenon that brought together a fan base spread out across the musical spectrum. The Postal Service performs at the Midland Theatre in Kansas City on Wednesday, July 31 at 8 p.m. Ticket prices are $35 to $40. Taylor Swift at the Sprint Center The blonde bombshell Taylor swift is set to perform at the Sprint Center in Kansas City on Aug. 2 and 3. Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Swift will also play with Ed Sheeran, the English singer-songwriter who is featured in her big hit, “Everything Has Changed,” from her most recent album, “Red.”

Macklemore LLC
The country singer-turned-pop star’s RED Tour is set to be one of the most-anticipated musical events of 2013. Swift’s live shows are known worldwide for bringing her music to life through a variety of instruments, lights and wild costumes. Her heartfelt lyrics and relatable songs have landed her four Grammys, Top New Female Vocalist AMC awards and three self-titled platinum albums. The concerts start at 7 p.m. For more ticket information, visit sprintcenter.com. — Edited by Allison Kohn

Summer camp attracts future Kansas players
Max Goodwin
It’s a summery mid-July morning in downtown Lawrence as sophomore forwards Ashley Williams and Courtney Dickerson of the Kansas soccer team dodge the heat to grab breakfast in a restaurant on Massachusetts Street. The two of them are taking a short break between an early morning weight lifting session and a day of working as counselors for the Jayhawks Soccer Camp. Williams and Dickerson are coming off of a freshman season in which they each played in all 20 games and combined for 12 goals, but it was just a couple years ago that they were high school campers themselves, experiencing their first tastes of Division I soccer. “We got to meet older girls and they told us what to expect,” Dickerson said of attending the Kansas soccer camp in high school. “It definitely helped me to be prepared.” The camp that coach Mark Francis runs each summer has become a way for current Jayhawks to mentor future Jayhawks who are already committed to Kansas, as well as other young hopeful soccer players. “We know how they feel,” Williams said. “We were in their situation a couple years ago. It’s nice to see good girls continuing to come through.” Williams said the camp serves as a way to become familiar with the team in a soccer setting for the players who have already committed to Kansas. “We talk with them and see how they’re doing during lunch breaks and times like that,” she said. For Coach Francis, the camp is a way for committed players to be mentored and to scout potential players up close. In past years, Francis has discovered several hidden gems from watching them play in camp. On a Wednesday night as campers played a scrimmage, Francis stood right in the middle of the action, watching closely as the young players showed their skills. Francis said he asks certain questions when watching potential future Jayhawks. “Do they have the athleticism and the speed to play in the Big 12?” he said. “And the way we play, players have to be technically skilled with the

ball, so, how’s their technique under pressure? How do they play under pressure?” One of the players that caught the critical coaching eye of Francis years ago was Caroline Kastor, now a senior forward from Wichita. The coaches at the camp could see her potential in the way she played against older, more experienced players. Kastor was offered a scholarship after the camp. “I just remember getting on the field with some of the KU players at the time and thinking ‘Wow, this is really cool,” Kastor said. Last season, Kastor lead Kansas with 11 goals. As she prepares to be

a teamleader in the coming season, Kastor said she first seriously considered playing at the college level after attending the camp as a sophomore in high school. “The last night of the camp, when we scrimmaged, I had a really good night,” Kastor said. “That was the highlight of the camp for me. I kind of shocked myself, honestly. All of the sudden I was playing really well and that gave me a boost and made me feel like I could keep up athletically with those players.” — Edited by Allison Kohn

Upcoming season relies on seniors
nathan fordyce
nfordyce@kansan.com The Kansas volleyball team is coming off one of the best seasons in program history and is poised to make a big splash this season as it has nine upperclassmen to help anchor the team. The team will begin its 2013 season with nine out of 10 games on the road. Kansas will also have 14 matches against teams that made it the NCAA tournament a year ago, including defending national champion Texas. “If we’ve ever been equipped to handle a schedule like that, this would be the year,” coach Ray Bechard said. “Hopefully with a team that’s been through three, four years of Big 12 battle, they’ll be able to handle that, a very difficult non-conference road ­­ schedule this fall.” Bechard, who is heading into his 16th season as Kansas’ coach, said the team has lofty goals, but with the national champion looming within the conference, the goals are realistic ones. “All goals have to be realistic and challenging,” Bechard said. “We were a top-three team last year in the Big 12, and that certainly would be a goal again this year. We were an NCAA participant last year and got to host. “The NCAA tournament and the Big 12 finish are two very important goals of ours. We want to have an upper finish in the Big 12 — top three, top two — whatever that may be, and I know this team wants to get back to the NCAA tournament.” It should come as no surprise that the Jayhawks are playing the majority of their non-conference games on the road. Last season, the team set a program record with 17 victories inside Horejsi Family Athletic Center. Bechard said teams aren’t afraid to come to Lawrence to challenge the Jayhawks. “You want to set up your nonconference road schedule to where you’re going to have success, and we’re no different than anyone else,” Bechard said. “The sense is, KU was pretty good last year and they got all these players returning.” With the experienced team, Bechard said it doesn’t have a glaring weakness, provided the injury bug avoids the team. He also said the team has strengths that rest on both the offensive and defensive side. Bechard said the team needs to be more aggressive on serves and continue to improve and not get complacent on being where they are were a year ago. “I think we can hit the ground running because we feel like we can be a good team, but we can’t forget how hard it was last fall,” Bechard said. “In this league, it’s much easier to take two or three steps back than it is to take one big step forward.” — Edited Megan Hinman

Athletics signs deal with ESPN3, Time Warner
Nathan Fordyce
nfordyce@kansan.com Earlier this month, Kansas Athletics signed a deal with Time Warner Cable Metro Sports and then followed that up with a seven-year deal with ESPN3. Although the numbers weren’t released, it is one of the largest deals ESPN3 has ever signed. The deal with Time Warner finished up the tier three television rights. Time Warner will air at least 50 live events each year which include one football game, six men’s basketball games, up to 16 women’s basketball games, nine volleyball matches, eight baseball games and up to 12 softball, soccer and track and field events. ESPN3 will also air an additional 20 live contests that will be viewed nationwide. All of those numbers can change by the year depending on what the tier one and tier two decide to broadcast. “It’s terrific exposure around the country for all of our sports,” said Jim Marchiony, the University’s Assistant Athletic Director of Public Affairs. “This is key, this doesn’t have to be confined to be just Kansas Athletics. We want to find ways to publicize the great things that are happening around the University, and this is a way we can do that.” Through the two deals, the University will garner hundreds of hours, approximately 300-500 hours, of live programming. Time Warner The long-term deal between Time Warner and Kansas Athletics and IMG College, which is the multimedia rights holder for KU Athletics, was an opportunity to gain the most exposure for the University. The general manager of Jayhawk IMG Sport Marketing, Jason Booker, looked at the overall size and reachablity of the market to get the most out of the television deal. “If you look at the size, comparative to other cable providers on the market, they are the dominate provider. Between Time Warner and Comcast, they have a large percentage of the market share. In addition, having Metro Sports and programming, they have a heavy concept on local programming and they have a full-time production staff.” Metro Sports is a 24/7 sports net-

worke based in Kansas City. As a part of Time Warner, millions of viewers nationwide will be able to see live events from the University. “Time Warner Cable Metro Sports is extremely excited to partner with Kansas Athletics and IMG to bring Kansas programming to Time Warner Cable subscribers in Kansas City and across the country,” said Chris Huwe, general manager, Time Warner Cable Metro Sports, in a press release. “We know how much KU

“We wanted to look and see what was unique about Kansas and what can we do that will benefit us the most.”

Jason Booker Jayhawk IMG Sport Marketing general manager

fans care about the Jayhawks and are proud to produce live games and extensive Kansas Athletics programming on Time Warner Cable Metro Sports. One of the biggest draws for the University was to be able to get all sports, especially the Olympic sports

— swimming, soccer, track and field, etc. — suitable coverage. 0 “I think it’s very important to get exposure for all of our sports,” Marchiony said. “It helps the overall strength of our athletics department. It helps recruit really good student athletes to Kansas and it also helps raise the visibility of the University which may help recruit the general student body as well. “Because part of this deal, we can highlight the University programs. We can devote some of these hundreds of hours to things that are going on at the University of Kansas.” The University is the last of the Big 12 members to agree to their tier three rights. Texas has their Longhorn Network, which is ESPN-backed; Baylor, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU and Texas Tech have deals with Fox. Iowa State and West Virginia have agreements with local networks in their regions. “We wanted to sit back and look at all of our options and we didn’t want to jump on the first opportunity that we looked at,” Booker said. “We wanted to get a good feel of how everything is working at Texas,

Oklahoma and the other schools with their Fox deals. We wanted to look and see what was unique about Kansas and what can we do that will benefit us the most.” Kansas volleyball coach Ray Bechard, whose team will get some of the first coverage under the deal, said it’s great for the University to get the extra publicity outside of the local area. “It’s a whole different kind of following, not just a region basis but a national one,” Bechard said. “It’s good for Kansas athletics and good for Kansas volleyball.” Under the contract, the volleyball team will have nine games aired over Metro Sports, starting on Sept. 22 against Notre Dame. Other than the 50 live events that will air, there will be hundreds of hours of Kansas-themed programming. This includes pregame and post-game shows and a weekly magazine-type show that will focus on the athletics and the University.
