RALEIGH — The UNC-system Board of
Governors began setting the course for the
system’s tuition and fee increases until 2019
The new four-year tuition plan, which
would begin in 2015 if passed, would cap
tuition and fee increases for in-state students
at 5 percent annually.
The proposed plan applies to both in-state
undergraduate and graduate tuition rates.
It would also continue the mandate that
in-state undergraduate tuition and fee rates
remain in the bottom quartile of public peer
Out-of-state tuition rates are expected to
be “market driven,” as well as reflect the cost
of a quality education. Campuses must set a
goal for tuition and fee rates to be at or above
the third quartile of their public peers.
An out-of-state tuition increase for next
year at most system schools — 12.3 percent
at UNC-CH — was approved by the N.C.
The current annual cap for in-state tuition
and fee increases is 6.5 percent. But system
President Tom Ross said in August that he
supported a tuition freeze for in-state under-

Cobb residents move out and forward
By Colleen Moir
Students who live on the fourth
floor of Cobb Residence Hall now
have new housing assignments,
but many say they are frustrated
that they no longer feel at home.
In the two days following the
fire that started in Cobb’s attic
Tuesday afternoon, more than 350
UNC students have had to make
alternate housing arrangements.
Damage to each floor is varied,
with the worst occurring on the
fourth floor — which could have
housed more than 90 students.
“The Dean of Students’ Office
has been extraordinary in reaching
out to the residents of Cobb,” said
sophomore Brittany Jordan Cole,
a Cobb resident. “But as a whole,
the school is putting the burden
on the students, especially finan-
cially. The administrators don’t
know the extent of the damage,
and they’re understating it.”
She said the most significant
damage to her room was caused
by the fire hoses — dust and debris
covered her walls and her floor.
Cole said she has been staying
with friends. She was assigned a
room in Manly Residence Hall,
but said when she arrived, those
living there did not know about
the fire in Cobb.
“I can understand that it would
be difficult for strangers to have
an emotional person dumped
into their living space,” Cole said.
To cover the costs of items like
clothes and toiletries, the housing
department has guided students
toward resources such as the
Student Emergency Fund, which
provides funds for crisis situations.
In an email to Cobb residents,
Bradley encouraged them to check
whether their insurance policies
would cover damaged belongings
— those students with renter’s
insurance were encouraged to
contact their insurance agent.
“If you do not have renter’s
insurance, please contact your
family/guardian and determine
whether they have a rider on their
insurance policy that would cover
your belongings while at college,”
Bradley said in the email.
Ginny Brodd, who also lived
on the fourth floor, said she felt
frustrated with how the hous-
ing department has handled the
situation. She said she and her
friends approached the depart-
ment about terminating their
contracts so they could live off
campus this and next semester.
COURTESY OF BRITTANY JORDAN COLE
The fourth floor of Cobb suffered severe damage during a fire Tuesday,
including ceiling collapses in some rooms. Floor residents were evacuated.
“They said to email them and
explain why we needed to be reim-
bursed and cancel our housing
contract,” Brodd said. “I emailed
the guy and received no response.
When we went to housing this
afternoon, they basically said no.”
Brodd said she didn’t under-
stand the department’s unwilling-
ness to change her contract, saying
she and her friends haven’t even
paid for the spring semester yet.
“We chose to live in Cobb and
with each other. We’ve been split
up all over campus, when we real-
ly just want to get an apartment
together off campus,” she said.
Housing officials could not be
reached for comment.
Support from social media has
poured in for those affected by
the fire. A Facebook group, Cobb
Strong, is offering support and
linking students together.
“Our lives have to continue,”
Cole said. “We’re still trying to get
our education at one of the most
difficult institutions in the country.”

looked forward to fresh air, visiting her play-
ers at practice and reuniting with her golden
She also said she planned on holding a
team-building exercise when she visited the
team’s practice that afternoon.
However, the second-winningest coach in
NCAA women’s basketball history said she
wouldn’t be attending the team’s upcoming
game against No. 4 Tennessee Monday. She
was also unsure of a timeline for her return
to full coaching duties.
“It’s going to take a little more time with
the consolidation of treatments and all of
that, but it’ ll be a few weeks and I’ ll be back
eventually, full force,” Hatchell said. “I’m
going to start back gradually — go to the
office and do things and all of that, but as
far as doing everything, it’ ll be a few weeks
before I can do all of that.”
Since her announcement, associate
head coach Andrew Calder has taken over
Hatchell’s on-court role.

The North Carolina women’s soccer team
has won more championships than any other
athletic program in school history — but its
success on the field might make it harder for
the Tar Heels to earn their degrees.
The Graduation Success Rate — an NCAA
measurement for the proportion of college
athletes on athletic scholarships that gradu-
ate within six years — for the UNC women’s
soccer team was 67 percent for 2011-12,
according to the most recent report from the
UNC Faculty Athletics Committee.
UNC’s overall athlete GSR for the same
year was 88 percent.
According to the report, which was pub-
lished in October, the GSR includes student
athletes that transfer into an institution.
Schools are not penalized when a student
athlete leaves in good academic standing
to transfer to another institution, pursue a
professional career or other reasons, accord-
ing to the NCAA. At UNC, “good academic
standing” requires a minimum 2.0 GPA and
the successful completion of a certain num-
ber of credit hours each semester.
Lissa Broome, UNC’s faculty athletics
representative who wrote the report, said
the athletic department is aware of UNC’s
GSR and is working to help athletes graduate
within six years.
“If you leave before you graduate in good
academic standing, you don’t go against the
GSR,” she said.
Amy Perko, executive director of the Knight
Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics, said
schools receive bonus points to their GSRs
when athletes return to complete their degrees.
“There are incentives in the NCAA system
that reward schools that have former players
come back and complete their degrees,” she
Women’s soccer coach Anson Dorrance
said his best players stay at UNC for at least
the fall season of all four years of their col-
Because the professional soccer draft is in
January, the players often try to play profes-
sionally in the spring of their senior year
before they graduate.
Dorrance said because of the program’s
historical success, the women’s soccer players
are held to a high athletic standard.
Senior midfielder Crystal Dunn, a sociology
major who said she does not expect to graduate
in four years, said there is more motivation for
soccer players to go pro because the sport pro-
vides a lot of opportunities for professionals.
Dunn said she wants to enter the profes-
sional draft in January.
She is not allowed to enroll in classes for
the spring semester because she would have to
leave UNC in March if she is picked by a pro-
fessional team. She said she would like to play
professionally for a year and then try to play
in the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2015.

A bipartisan majority in the U.S.
Senate passed the Employment Non-
Discrimination Act on Thursday, a
move that could change the employ-
ment climate for the LGBT commu-
nity in North Carolina.
Though it appears unlikely, if
the bill is passed by the House of
Representatives, it will be illegal for
employers with 15 or more employees
to fire someone on the basis of sexual
orientation or gender identity. The
bill exempts religious organizations.
President Barack Obama has said he
would sign ENDA into law.
A version of the bill has been
introduced in every congressional
session since 1994 except one — but
it has only been approved by a legis-
lative chamber once, in 2007.
North Carolina is one of 29 states
without employment equality laws
covering sexual orientation.
“The irony is that 15 states now
have marriage equality, yet in some
of those states you can’t bring a
picture of your spouse to work for
fear of being fired,” said Jen Jones,
spokeswoman for Equality N.C.
She said a recent poll showed that
73 percent of North Carolina resi-
dents believe employers should not
be allowed to discriminate against
gay and transgender employees.
But Jones said state legislators
might not share those sentiments.
“The unfortunate reality is we have
an incredibly conservative General
Assembly right now,” she said.
All 17 UNC-system schools already
have employment policies that pro-
hibit discrimination based on sexual
orientation, gender identity and gen-
der expression, said Jayne Grandes,
associate director for investigations
and compliance reporting in UNC’s
Equal Opportunity/Americans with
Disabilities Act Office.
Jeff Hirsch, a law professor at
UNC, said many Fortune 500 com-
panies and other large businesses
have already implemented policies
that prevent this type of discrimina-
tion. Mostly middle-sized companies
would be affected, he said.
He said the bill’s future in the
Republican-led House looks bleak,
but he is optimistic that it will be
passed in the near future, citing a
generational shift in perspective
about sexual orientation.
Jones said national momentum
surrounding same-sex marriage
will bolster efforts to implement
federal employment nondiscrimi-
“The majority of national LGBT
organizations as well as state equal-
ity groups like our own have been
lobbying hard to make this a reality,”
In a statement on Thursday,
Obama called for House Republican
leaders to bring the bill to a vote.
“One party in one house of
Congress should not stand in the
way of millions of Americans who
want to go to work each day and
simply be judged by the job they do.”

Champ, a 4-year-old male cat, rests at the Orange County Animal Shelter on Thursday. Black cats are often overlooked for potential adoption.
By Graves Ganzert
Though many people avoid crossing black
cats’ paths, Siglinda Scarpa wants prospec-
tive pet owners to realize their potential as
While black cats’ ominous reputation has
withstood the test of time, a movement is
gaining momentum in the greater Chapel
Hill area to reverse this perception.
Scarpa is the executive director of the
Goathouse Refuge, a no-kill sanctuary for
cats in Pittsboro.
But she said despite how many cats are
adopted, black cats are often overlooked.
“I think that somehow it is a historical
problem,” she said. “I feel somehow people
have developed a prejudice towards them.”
Scarpa said she hopes to put an end to
“I feel people feel that they are malicious,”
she said. “There are so many rumors and
stories of black cats causing bad omens or
bad luck. Black cats should be seen as they
are — a beautiful, sleek animal.”
Scarpa said a cat’s personality is not
unique simply to its color but to its breed.
“Black cats are absolutely like any other
cat,” she said.
“Different breeds do have different per-
sonalities and characteristics but it does not
depend on the color.”
Scarpa said last year, less than one-third
of black cats were adopted at the refuge.
To change this trend, Goathouse Refuge
has planned a “Back in Black” promotion in
To encourage adoption, the refuge has
lowered its adoption fee by $25, from
$100 to $75, for the first 75 black cats
And on Sunday Goathouse Refuge will
host a Second Sunday Cat Cafe, featuring
various black cats and kittens available for
Robert Marotto, director of the Orange
County Animal Shelter, said he does not
track any trends in adoption based simply
on color. He said the overall rate of cat
adoption is low in Orange County.
About 45 percent of cats that entered
Orange County Animal Shelter were
euthanized in 2011, according to data from
the N.C. Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services. Overall, the rate for
North Carolina was 78 percent.
“Cats are a challenge today,” he said. “We
have not had any significant improvement
in the rate of cat adoption.”
Ginny Larkin-Thorsen, co-chairwoman
for UNC Helping Paws, said this is a trend
that should be reversed.
“Much like people have stereotypes about
particular breeds, there is also a subcon-
scious association people have with black
animals,” she said.
Larkin-Thorsen said she works to advo-
cate the importance of adopting for an ani-
mal’s companionship, not color.
“It’s about the personality, not the color
or breed, and that is something that we in
Helping Paws like to emphasize because we
want people to adopt based on the dog or
cat, not specifically on their breed or look,”

UNC students will once again make a deci-
sion about the University’s place in the long-
criticized UNC-system Association of Student
From midnight to 5 p.m. today, students can
go to studentlife.unc.edu and vote on whether
they want the University to stay in the student
advocacy organization, which is composed of
delegates from all 17 system schools and funded
by a $1 annual student fee. UNC students con-
tributed $27,069 to ASG this year.
Robert Windsor, chairman of the UNC Board
of Elections, said ASG will be the first item on the
ballot, followed by Homecoming elections and
Student Congress special elections.
In 2012, the last time students voted on ASG
membership, the ballot had the referendum
listed last. Students voted to stay in the asso-
ciation. This time, Windsor said he put the
referendum on the top of the ballot due to its
Speaker of Student Congress Connor Brady
said he is proud of the advocacy efforts sur-
rounding the vote — like the official email sent
to all students Thursday.
Still, in an online Daily Tar Heel survey of
34 random students, 14 were unaware of the
vote, and several in that group did not know
what the association was. In the survey, four
students said they wanted to leave ASG and 15
wanted to stay in.
“If we leave ASG, we will have no say in what
goes on and what could be changed,” said sopho-
more Taylor Pulley in the survey. “It’s only a $1
student fee that will not make or break any of us.”
Members of UNC Student Congress were
also surveyed — of the 15 representatives who
answered, four said they will vote to stay in ASG,
while the other 11 said they will vote to leave it.
ASG President Robert Nunnery said UNC
would lose a voice if it pulls out of the associa-
tion, especially because it advocates for student
issues, like gender-neutral housing, which was
banned by the system Board of Governors. The
association is currently discussing alternatives.
“While (these issues) might not have had the
intended outcome, imagine having no voice,”
At 6 p.m., the UNC Board of Elections will
announce the results of the election. If students
decide they want to leave ASG, delegates of
UNC student government will petition to the
UNC Board of Trustees. The system Board of
Governors will have to approve the University’s
departure before the fee can be canceled.
If students decide to stay in ASG, Brady
said the University will continue to attempt to
reform the organization from within.
He said student government representatives
will stand in the Pit today to encourage stu-
dents to vote “yes” to leave the association.
“If there’s a vending machine that’s broken
down, you’re not going to keep putting a dollar
in it until it works — you find someone to fix it.”
Students last voted on UNC’s ASG
membership in 2012.
Hairston, McDonald to miss opener
Team spokesman said the NCAA
compliance issue is “ongoing.”
By Brooke Pryor
With season openers comes excitement,
hope for the future, a chance at a title run.
But for the North Carolina basketball
team, the season opener against Oakland is
considerably dulled with a cloud of uncer-
tainty hanging over the Smith Center.
The Tar Heels’ top 3-point threats, P.J.
Hairston and Leslie McDonald, will both sit
on the sideline, wearing suits and ties rather
than jerseys and tennis shoes Friday night.
Though coach Roy Williams hoped to
announce Hairston and McDonald’s final
fate before the season, team spokesman Steve
Kirschner said Thursday that the compliance
issue with the NCAA is “ongoing.”
“It is frustrating but it’s also a long pro-
cess and we’re trying to do what we can do,”
Williams said. “The NCAA is trying to do
what they can do. But it’s what it is. I’m sure
they would like to settle all of their cases in
five minutes, too. We’ve just got to try to con-
tinue to work with them and working with
our student athletes and doing the best job
we can do and just seeing what happens.”
At the ACC’s Operation Basketball on Oct.
16, Williams maintained that there would be
a decision before the opener.
“I said it will be announced before the sea-
son starts and it will,” Williams said then.
But less than a month later, a decision
hasn’t been made, and Williams’ role has
been reduced to “waiting for somebody to tell
me what’s going on.”
Though the circumstances are drastically
different, uncertainty isn’t anything new to

Leslie McDonald (right) will not play in North Carolina’s basketball season opener Friday night.
UNC leading into the season opener. This time
last year, the starting lineup wasn’t set and the
team’s identity was unclear after four starters
departed for the NBA and graduation.
“Last year just not knowing what the team
was going to look like, especially after los-
ing all of those guys that went pro,” junior
forward James Michael McAdoo said. “As
opposed to this year where we’re really com-
fortable and confident with who we have.
“But knowing that we won’t have P.J. and
Leslie out there is definitely something that’s
going to change our team and the way we look.”
With the absence of Hairston and
McDonald, the team will shift its lineup to
adjust for the loss of the two wing players.
“Right now, Lord willing and the creek
don’t rise and all that kind of stuff, Nate
(Britt), Marcus (Paige), J.P. (Tokoto), James
Michael (McAdoo) and depends on who
brings me the best piece of dessert tonight,”
Williams said of his starting lineup.
A summer of controversy surrounding two
of his players — Hairston’s traffic transgres-
sions and McDonald’s involvement with a
designer mouthguard company — made for
the most difficult offseason and preseason
Williams said he’s experienced.
But with the regular season finally upon
him, Williams is prepared to make the neces-
sary adjustments while two of his top players
are relegated to street clothes at game time.
“It has been a very erratic planning and
preseason time, it really has,” he said. “Because
things aren’t as smooth and as settled as we
would like for them to be. But it’s what it is.”

Improved defense to face UVa
By Jonathan LaMantia
Following a crushing
loss to then-No. 10 Miami,
the North Carolina defense
turned a corner, and helped
UNC to its first winning
streak of the season — one
the Tar Heels hope to carry
through Saturday’s game
The Cavaliers (2-7, 0-5
ACC) have shown flashes of
potential but have yet to beat
an ACC opponent.
Defensive end Kareem
Martin said the talent of the
Virginia offense, which is led
by dual-threat quarterback
David Watford, isn’t reflected
by the team’s record.
“When you look at them on
film and see their record, you
think it’s two different teams,”
Martin said. “On film they look
really great — great quarter-
back, great size on their line.”
Watford has run for 283
yards this season — more
than any UNC running back
— but has thrown 10 inter-
ceptions and lost two fumbles
already this season.
Coach Larry Fedora said
the Cavalier offense has a dif-
ferent look this season.
“They’re doing much more
with the quarterback,” he
said. “They’ve got a kid that
can run and throw, they’ve
got a very talented running
back and they’re finding a lot
of different ways.”
Though the UNC defense
has made improvements

continued to struggle with
opponents’ run games. N.C.
State amassed 212 yards on the
ground. Preventing big plays
on the ground will also be criti-
cal if UNC hopes to avoid an
upset on Homecoming.
The UNC defense has been
burned by seven runs of more
than 25 yards this season,
including a 56-yard touch-
down run by Boston College
running back Andre Williams
two weeks ago.
“Early on that was one
of the things that was really
hurting our defense because
you started taking away those
huge plays that we were giving
up and we were playing really
sound,” Fedora said. “And it
was just getting our guys to
focus each and every play and
understand that there’s never
a time where you can take a
mental break in a game.”

tions, lot of motion shifts, lot

for you,” he said.
Fedora said he has stressed
the need to avoid compla-

“Now you’ve got people who
want to pat you on the back,”
he said. “If you do, you better
watch out. Better just stay the

This is Hatchell and
Calder’s 28th year with UNC.
This season, the team won
both its exhibition games
under Calder’s coaching.
Calder and assistant coach
were both at UNC Hospitals
when Hatchell was released.
Throughout her treat-
ments, Hatchell sent out
tweets updating followers on
her progress as well as thank-
ing them for their support.
“It’s unbelievable,” she said.
“I don’t know what’d I’d do
without this iPad, and cell-
phone, and the tweets that
have gone out, and emails
and just everything. It’s just
The display of encourage-
ment went beyond Twitter,
though. Hatchell said she
opened hundreds of letters
while she was in the hospital.
“The outpouring of love
and friendship and all is abso-
lutely unbelievable,” she said.
On the court, the women’s
basketball coaching staff has
worn orange ribbons in sup-
port of Hatchell.
Hatchell said the experi-
ence she’s had since her diag-
nosis has made her appreciate
her time at UNC even more.
“I’ve learned a lot,” Hatchell
said. “Trust me. You learn
when you go through some-
thing like this. You learn
what’s important to you and
how things are so important.
“Of course, I’ve never taken

The system has seen nearly
half a billion dollars erased
from its state funding since
Some members voiced
concern about keeping UNC-
system schools affordable.
“We could raise tuition
5 percent a year ... and that
seems like a lot,” member John
Fennebresque said. “I wonder
if it makes our product too
expensive for the families that
don’t qualify for financial aid
— the middle class.”
Board Chairman Peter
Hans told members that
affordability for the middle
class must be a priority.
The four-year plan is
meant to stabilize tuition
increases and provide some
predictability for students
After the policy discus-
sion, former Gov. Jim Hunt
addressed the board mem-
bers, stressing how vital the
UNC system is for economic
development of the state.
“I hope you will tell the
folks downtown that we
have enough cuts,” he told
the board. “It’s time now to
increase the funding for the
university system. I don’t want
these other states — which
are now beginning to do that
more than we are — I don’t
want them to get ahead of us.”
The board met for com-
mittee meetings at N.C. State
University on Thursday. The
full board will reconvene
today at 9 a.m.
But before the board
reconvenes, students and
activists will be protesting
member David Powers’ place
on the board.
Chris Stella, a UNC-
Greensboro senior, said
Powers is a member of
the American Legislative
Exchange Council and on the
board of Reynolds American,
a tobacco company.
“We feel that his ties to
human rights violations
that occur within Reynolds
American’s supply chain and
a far right-wing lobbying
group should disqualify him
as far as making decisions for
public education,” he said,
adding that UNC-CH student
group Alianza, which is in sol-
idarity with farmworkers, has
asked to meet with Powers
before, and he declined.
Powers’ term expires in
Dunn, who needs about
a year’s worth of classes to
graduate, said she is not sure
when she will be able to return
to UNC to finish her degree.
Megan Brigman, a redshirt
senior defender and a com-
munication studies major,
will graduate in December.
She said she is doing so
to avoid possible conflicts
between her education and
her soccer career.
Dorrance said he and his
staff encourage players to
graduate in December, but it is
a hard standard to enforce.
With about 800 students
involved in athletics at UNC,
each needs his or her own
academic support system,
said Michelle Brown, director
of UNC’s Academic Support
Programs for Student-Athletes.
Brown said a variety of
resources, including tutoring
and academic counseling, are
available to athletes.
Anna Sieloff, goalkeeper
and a senior business admin-
istration major, said these
resources have helped her
plans to graduate in December
2014. Sieloff said the team also
has team study halls before
away games to complete
assignments on time.
She said the team study
sessions are especially geared
toward the younger players
because they are more likely
to fall behind.

Sagula’s unexpected journey
The volleyball coach never expected to take the court
North Carolina volleyball coach Joe Sagula is in his 24th season with the Tar Heels after not beginning to play volleyball until college. The team currently boasts a 20-3 record.

team’s afternoon practice.

Digging, setting, hitting,
blocking, serving and defense.
That’s what they’ll work on.
The team just dropped a
pair of road games in Florida,
and Sagula doesn’t want his
No. 19 Tar Heels to follow suit
Practice will conclude with
an intense, interactive six-on-
six drill. Sagula asks Adams
what he thinks.
“Perfect,” Adams says.
Sagula has a plan — he
always has —but 40 years ago,
volleyball wasn’t part of it.
Not his first love
All through his child-
hood, middle school and high
school years, Sagula was a
It was all he knew.
“My entire life I had run
track,” he said.
“I ran in the Millrose
Games, I ran in the Penn

seemed natural for the Bronx,
N.Y. native — it was what he
had always wanted.

“I was a sprinter,” he said.

8 feet and said, ‘This is crazy.
No way.’ So I went and I said,

COURTESY OF MARY KAY ROOT
Chipper Root (bottom right) with former player Chris Leitch during UNC’s 2001 national title season.
By Aaron Dodson
Assistant Sports Editor
Twelve years ago, a young
Chipper Root took his place
on the sideline every game
at Fetzer Field as a ball boy
for the North Carolina men’s
soccer team during its 2001
And each time after he
scooped up a ball that rolled
out of bounds and tossed it to
an awaiting Tar Heel player,
he knew that one day he
wanted to be on the receiving
end of the exchange, wearing
“It really got me into col-
lege soccer and showed me I
really wanted to do this when
I was older,” he said. “I loved
UNC from that point on and
I always wanted to come here
— it was one of my dreams.”
Tonight, when the Tar
Heels face N.C. State on
Senior Night, Root will take
to the sideline in what could
be the senior midfielder’s last
game at Fetzer Field. Only this
time, he will be surrounded by
fellow Tar Heels while sport-
ing his No. 23 UNC jersey.
“This is where he really
always wanted to be,” Mary
Kay Root, Chipper’s mom, said.
“It’s exciting because he grew
up here, he went to Chapel
Hill High School, and since he
was 4 we’ve been coming and
watching these games.
“And now he’s on the team.”
But Root hasn’t been listed
on the Tar Heel roster for the
last four years. Despite being
a two-time all-state and all-
region player at Chapel Hill
High School and talking to
former UNC coach Elmar
Bolowich, North Carolina
didn’t offer the 5-foot-6 mid-
fielder a spot on the team
right out of high school.
Root played two seasons at
South Carolina, but discovered
Columbia wasn’t the place for
him. He wanted to return to
the field he had known since
he could barely tie his cleats.
“It ended up not being the
right decision,” he said. “So I
wanted to come back to the
place I loved.”
So Root reconnected with
a coach he’d known since his
youth soccer days — then sec-
ond-year UNC coach Carlos
Somoano— who offered Root
a spot on the team.
Heading into his first
regular season for UNC, Root
felt like he had something to
prove — that he should have
been on the team all along.
And he did just that— net-
ting what’s been his only
career goal as a Tar Heel in a
4-0 defeat of Gardner-Webb.
“There were a lot of jitters,
a lot of nerves I guess,” he said.
“I wanted to show Chapel Hill,
come back and show all the
fans who I was and maybe I
should have been here from
the beginning. I wanted to
play the best I could.”
Though Root’s name hasn’t
appeared much on UNC stat
Root fulﬁlls dream on UNC’s senior night
A new love
While at SUNY, Sagula’s
strong, quick hands made him
an impressive setter and by his
senior year, he was the captain.
When he wasn’t on the
court, he was in the studio pur-
suing his other passion — art.
“My Bachelor’s of Fine Arts
was a five-year program,” he
“I had my thesis presenta-
tion which was in 1978. I
think it was 10 watercolors,
12 oils and drawings.”
The next year he earned a
certificate to teach art at all
Eventually when he began
to coach at the high school
level, he also began to teach.
“I taught architecture, pho-
tography, drawing, painting
and ceramics,” he said.
“Those were my biggest.”
Scaling the ladder
Sagula began to coach
while he was still earning his
degree. He was asked to form
a junior boys’ program and
began to coach in New York’s
Empire State Games.
In 1980 Sagula took one
of his boys’ teams to an AAU
Then 1981 came.
“1981 I got asked to be the
head coach at the University
of Pennsylvania,” he said.
“It was the right place at
the right time — 25 years
old I’m the head coach at the
University of Pennsylvania in
the Ivy League.”
With the Quakers, Sagula
clinched three Ivy League
titles and was named the
league’s coach of the year four
times in a row.
He stayed for nine years, but
one thing led to another and
he chose to apply for the head
coaching job at Michigan.
“There were three candi-
dates. This guy from Southern
Cal, myself and the coach from
North Carolina,” he said.“The
coach from North Carolina
got the job at Michigan.”
Of all places, Sagula’s clos-
et coaching companion was
in Durham — at Duke. He
recommended Sagula, who
had been the assistant coach
of the East team in the 1987
Olympic Festival in Chapel
Hill, for the job at UNC.
“He’s like, ‘Hey you know
this is my friend, but ... he’s a
really good coach.’ He helped
me get here,” Sagula said.
“And I’ve never thought
twice about it. I’ve never
wanted to be anywhere else.”
Now in his 24th year, he’s
won five ACC titles, taken his
team to nine NCAA tourna-
ments and has tallied more
wins than any other ACC
volleyball coach in history.
He’s coached with the USA
National Women’s Volleyball B
Team, served as the president
of the American Volleyball
Coaches Association and is
a member of SUNY’s Hall of
Fame for his achievement.
But seniors Kayla
Berringer and Kaitlyn
Anderson said none of that
compares to how he makes
his players feel — like people.
“He’s so good at just show-
ing how much he cares about
you,” Berringer said.
“Just knowing that you have
a coach that not just cares
about how you play volleyball,
but cares about you as a person
is a big thing, and really cool.”
Whether it’s an impromptu
ice cream trip, breakfast and
coffee in the morning or a
small gift in the middle of the
season, Anderson said the
team’s bond with Sagula is
like no other.
“I’m in the process of apply-
ing to dental school and kind of
throughout this whole process,
I’ve talked to him,” she said.
“Whether it be things going
on with family, or friends, or
anything, he’s always been an
open ear to listen.”
After 33 years of coaching,
Sagula can’t imagine doing
Perhaps when he retires
he’ ll return to art.
“Maybe (I’ ll open) a nice
little shop on the beach where
I’m painting and framing my
things,” he said with a smile.
Perhaps he’ ll take an
“I think a lot of people had
seen me as a potential at one
point having administrative
capability in the future,” he
Or perhaps he’ ll stay right
here in Chapel Hill — the
place he began to call home
24 years ago.
“I’m still a New Yorker or a
Yankee down south,” he said.
“But I am a Tar Heel. True
and blue after all this time.”
sheets the past two years,
Somoano said the midfielder
has done nothing short of
impact the team.
“He’s one of the more like-
able guys on our team for
sure,” he said. “He’s continued
to improve and we absolutely
couldn’t be more happy to
have him on our team.”
Before the N.C. State game

along with redshirt seniors
Alex Walters and Josh Rice.
For Root, his college soc-
cer career will end where it all
began, but this time, he’ll be on

sneaks up on you. Love is contagious, and
you have what another seeks.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Today is a 9 -- Investigate ways to
increase income and savings. A poten-
tial disruption can be avoided. Neatness
counts double, especially at home. Work
that you love pays very well. Hold out for
the best deal.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Today is a 9 -- You have an unusual
advantage when you listen closely. You
inspire others. Don’t ignore a brilliant
idea. Make love your top priority. Spread
your love letters to the four corners.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Today is a 7 -- You may notice temporary
overwhelm and possible delays in career
advancement, but don’t worry. Focus
on today, and use renewed confidence
to make extra money. Talk about your
dreams, and what you love.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Today is an 8 -- Don’t compare yourself to
others. You do best focusing on your work.
It’s not a contest, anyway. Inspiration goes
farther than being demanding. Pay back
a favor. Good will builds from kindness
freely given. Dream out loud.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Today is a 9 -- The pressure is increasing.
Only use what you need. Kindness is the
most valuable gift. Find the good news
among the rubble. Don’t worry ineffec-
tively. Collect an old debt. Blow off steam
with someone you love.
To get the advantage, check the day's rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging.
If November 8th is Your Birthday...
Your creativity flourishes this year. Your finances
transform, and it’s easier to make money. Fix up
your place. A new door opens regarding love, and
partnerships are your secret power. Launch a new
endeavor; your career sparks this summer.
Focus on what (and whom) you love.

DTH PICKS OF THE WEEK
The DTH sports staff and one celebrity guest compete to pick the winners of the biggest
ACC and national college football games each week.
What’s 11 letters and rhymes with hard
liquor? Guest picker. The same guest pick-
ers that have had an unbelievable streak of
beginner’s luck are in first place for too many
weeks in a row.
In the DTH newsroom, Sports Editor Brooke
Pryor, Assistant Sports Editor Aaron Dodson
and Senior Writer Jon LaMantia lead the pack
tied with 58 wins.
It was originally a two-way tie between
Pryor and LaMantia, but Dodson’s last-
minute notice of an error in last week’s picks
boosted his record by a game.
“Now I’m tied for first, baby!”Dodson said.
After a strong start to the year, Senior
Writer Michael Lananna finds himself in last
place for the past two weeks.
Lananna declined to address his struggles
with the football picks, looking forward to
the DTH basketball picks that will be kicking
off in the next couple of weeks.
“It’s basketball season so you already know
what that means,”Lananna said. “That’s game!”
All the pickers last week put their faith in
Virginia Tech, but the Hokies failed to live up
to expectations, losing to Boston College.
Greg Barnes is this
week’s guest picker.
In addition to being a
sports writer for Inside
Carolina, Barnes also

Epiphanies. They can lead
to discovery. They can achieve
clarity. And they can remind a
field hockey team of its blue-
print for success.
Passing, the simple act that
links teammates, put North
Carolina among the three
best teams in the nation.
Impatience, the hurried act of
forcing the ball to nobody in
particular, put UNC in a two-
game losing streak at regular
An early goal put No. 3 UNC
behind No. 15 Wake Forest in
a cold , soaking rain Thursday
at the ACC Tournament in
Newton, Mass. They stormed
back and topped the Demon
Deacons 3-2 on the coattails of
their coach’s simple reminder
— pass the ball to win.
“We kind of forgot to
do that,” said coach Karen
Shelton, referring to losses to
Old Dominion and Syracuse,
UNC’s opponent in the semi-
finals. “When we talked about
it and then we practiced it last
week, it was like, ‘Oh, yeah.
This is how we play.’”
The passing renaissance
began with a dive. Six-foot
midfielder Nina Notman
belly-flopped along the Wake
Forest goal line and knocked
a one-handed centering feed
to forward Casey Di Nardo. Di
Nardo buried the game-tying
goal to answer Wake Forest’s
Notman struck again mid-
way through the first half,
sweeping a one-timer behind
Wake Forest goalkeeper Valerie
Dahmen, whose acrobatic
eight saves kept the Demon
Deacons (11-8, 1-6 ACC) afloat
amid UNC’s surge.
“I thought Nina Notman
played a stellar game,” Shelton
said. “That was probably her
best game of the season.”
But UNC (15-4, 4-3 ACC)
surrendered the tying goal two
minutes after Notman gave her
team a 2-2 lead. UNC entered
halftime after a “ragged” first
half, Shelton said. The players
saw something more.
“Everyone was pumped
and everyone was in the
game,” Notman said. “We
were like, ‘We’re happy with
our game. We’re satisfied,
we’re confident in our play.’”
And then the passes came.
So, too, did UNC’s strangle-
hold on the game.
Charlotte Craddock’s turn-
around shot eluded Dahmen
10 minutes into the second
half. UNC then stretched the
field with clinical ball move-
ment, a blend of keep-away
and attack that helped UNC
outshoot Wake Forest 11-0 in
the final 35 minutes.
There’s more to quashing
a two-game losing streak, to
regaining what UNC lost dur-
ing its two-game skid. It came
back in hopeful glimmers,
Notman said, but not in full.
“We didn’t play at our
maximum,” Notman said. We
played good, but it was defi-
nitely not the best.”
Syracuse, which beat UNC
1-0 in the Tar Heels’ regular-
season finale, advanced with
a win against Boston College.
UNC will have to play faster
and more assertively to match
The Orange’s pace.
That doesn’t mean it has
to be a track meet. With its

UNC will be without Bryn Renner, but
Marquise Williams is not a typical backup
QB. Williams will get his second start of his
career and the dual-threat field general will
be a handful for U.Va. Williams has thrown
six TDs and run for one in 2013. Edge: UNC
UNC’s rushing game was stalled early in
the season, but T.J. Logan and Marquise
Williams have accounted for 253 yards in
the past three games. Add A.J. Blue, Romar
Morris and Khris Francis into the mix and
UNC has a potent rush. Edge: UNC
UNC is last in the ACC in rush defense and
running the ball is one of U.Va.’s strong
points this season. The Tar Heels have been
prone to giving up big gains. Virginia’s lead-
ing rusher, Kevin Parks, has run for more
than 100 yards in three games. Edge: U.Va.
UNC has a lot to play for this game.

Leaving ASG is wrong
Established 1893, 120 years of editorial freedom
QUOTE OF THE DAY
FEATURED ONLINE READER COMMENT
here at UNC
TO THE EDITOR:
Inspired by a letter to
the editor Nov. 5 by Matt
Cheek, I felt the need
to address some of the
concerns and issues men-
I appreciate the desire
to have brothers and sis-
ters in arms be recognized
for service and sacrifice to
our great country. I agree
that we, Americans and
the University of North
Carolina, can never do
enough to thank those
brave souls who have
served or died defending
freedom and those who
have sworn to serve.
UNC recognizes and
honors service members,
but has recently renewed
its vigor in this capacity.
Military Appreciation Day,
the most discernible event
honoring our armed forces,
can seem to be a singular
recognition of veterans;
however, UNC does much
more than a ceremonial
and audiences are ever
increasing, as there are
going to be MADs for bas-
ketball and baseball. UNC
holds an annual Veterans’
Day Ceremony, coordinated
by the ROTC departments,
which will be held Nov.
11 at 11:11 a.m. outside
Memorial Hall near the
Veterans Memorial. In the
event of inclement weather,
the ceremony will take
place in Hill Hall.
The summer of 2013,
UNC appointed Brian
Papajcik, assistant dean of
students, to manage veter-
ans’ resources in order to

vices official, is available to

The Student Veterans
Organization is on the

rienced Army ROTC cadet
acting as a president of the
ROTC cadets have vari-
ous backgrounds, so Mr.
Cheek’s statement that to
honor them with applause
is to honor “cadets, who
have never served a day
in our armed forces,”
would be incorrect. Active
duty, National Guard and
Reserve service members
are a great percentage of
ROTC programs. Some
have served up to 10 years
in service and several com-
bat deployments overseas.
As a new member of
the UNC staff, I can see
the stigma of UNC not
being veteran- or military-
friendly, but the past being
the past, I would say we
are headed in the right
direction. It also bodes well
that UNC is open to sug-
gestions and encouraging
the change to become more

oday students will
vote on UNC’s
participation in the
of Student Governments
— but really will decide
if UNC student leaders
should work to fix a broken
system they are a part of.
The referendum at hand
strives to gauge if students
believe that UNC should
remove itself from ASG
and its annual $1 student
fee due to concerns that
inefficiency in recent years
reveals a systemic problem
that is beyond repair.
ASG is flawed, there is
no arguing that. But given
its potential value and
low cost, student leaders
should spend their time
putting forth legislation
that will improve ASG,
rather than seeking to
remove themselves from
it. That is what their job
is, and they are in ASG to
give UNC students a voice
among the other schools.
This means you should
vote “no” today on the ref-
erendum to remove UNC
from the ASG.
Your message to student
leaders should be clear:
Don’t cut and run, work
together to fix it.
The ASG president
represents all 17 UNC-
system schools with his
seat on the UNC Board of
Governors. Pulling out of
ASG would remove UNC’s
voice from that group
without a visible backup
Complaints about a
historical lack in strong
leadership in ASG, along
with many other institu-
tional problems, has lead
to a movement to reform
it — something that cur-
rent and former members
of ASG say delegates from
Chapel Hill have been a
part of, but in discussion
Though UNC delegates
have been praised for their
input, there has not been
any notable ASG reform
from Chapel Hill recently.
To vote “yes” on this
referendum would not
only hurt the credibility of
UNC’s position among its
fellow UNC-system insti-
tutions, but also would
fragment the association
Though there has been
little tangible evidence
recently beyond ASG’s
stance on students’ voting
rights, the association as a
whole has the potential to
be extremely valuable.
And again, ASG is an
opportunity to be the stu-
dent voice at BOG meet-
ings. If UNC is to remove
its contributing cry from
this voice, our students
will not be able to utilize
the ASG president on
behalf of UNC to stand
up against issues like
proposed tuition raises,
and the shortening of the
When many of the
BOG’s decisions directly
affect so many of the stu-
dents on this campus, this
voice is not something we
can afford to give up.
Though this voice
comes at the expense of a
student fee — one that is
often criticized for how it
is used — it is not as large
and refundable as some
From acceptance to
graduation, the typical
student will see a grand
total of $4 spent on ASG.
Yes, the large tuition bill
is made up of a long list of
these small fees, but even
if UNC-CH were to leave
ASG, it does not mean
that this fee will no longer
be there. It is ultimately
up to the BOG to decide
whether students will pay
that $1 fee.
This is the same BOG
that created ASG. The
same BOG that was
pressed by faculty, staff
and students to allow ASG
a voice in their delibera-
tions. The idea that they
would simply allow UNC
to not pay this fee, espe-
cially in light of the hefty
financial support it pro-
vides the association, is
suspect at best.
The frustrations felt
by UNC’s delegates are
not unfounded — ASG is
flawed in its current state.
The elections for its
president are born from a
small pool of both candi-
dates and voters — often
student body presidents
that have just been elected
at their own campuses
and have no sense of the
candidates at hand.
This and the many other
issues that ASG delegates
believe need reform can
and should be tackled in
collaboration with other
UNC-system schools. N.C.
State just passed a resolu-
tion to call for reform to
ASG; UNC should be a part
of that effort and others.

Much of the discussion
between the task force
and Student Congress has
centered on the breadth of
No need to rush
the Title IX investigator’s
responsibilities, and though
it has taken significant
time, it’s a necessary task.
Currently, Title IX
investigators determine if
a violation has potentially
taken place rather than the
validity of an assault claim
— a good use of the office.
But the way the investiga-
tor goes about eliciting a
response from a student
or students involved in the
assault needs to be carefully
It is worth it to be
incredibly specific about the
wording of the policy before
enacting it in order to
maintain easily understood
rules and a process that
allows for appeals. Students
who report sexual assault
in the future will need the
clarity in order to ensure
their cases are taken care of
as concisely as possible.
If the role is expanded
to allow the investigators
to speak to both par-
ties before any official
hearings occur, it is not
unlikely that it could lead
to some mediation.
It is possible that a stu-
dent who initially reported
assault could feel pressure
to change his or her mind
about reporting. On the
other hand, allowing for a
mediated discussion could
always benefit both parties,
regardless of the outcome.
Due to the wide spec-
trum of possibilities that
can be incurred by expand-
ing the role of the Title IX
investigator, the role must
be considered as carefully
as possible. Take plenty of
time — just get it right.
