the student voice since 1904


This rendering shows what the interior of the Marvin Hall Forum will look like when construction ends at the end of the school year.


Architecture students begin construction on Marvin Hall Forum
having the Forum as an anchor for students to stay in Marvin is a big positive.” To create space for the Forum, students in the class have begun demolishing the Builder’s Yard, the steel and concrete structure behind Marvin Hall and one of the class’s first projects nearly 20 years ago. It will be the third project Studio 804 has constructed for the University. The others are the Center for Design Research and the Hill Engineering Research and Development Center on West Campus. The Forum will extend from the second floor of Marvin, supported by concrete columns, and it will feature a two-layered glass exterior that will allow the building to stay cool or warm when needed. The state-of-the-art exterior is being designed with the help of Transsolar, a German-based façade consultant. Dean of the School of Architecture John Gaunt said these features, in addition to the complex-


ckuiper@kansan.com Marvin Hall will have a sleek new addition by the end of the school year thanks to a group of dedicated students. Studio 804, a year-long architecture class in which students design and construct a building themselves, is in the early stages of constructing the Forum, an addition to the second floor of Marvin Hall. The Forum will be a glass structure that will serve as a commons area for the building and has room for a 120-seat presentation, creating much-needed space for the School of Architecture. “I think the biggest concern when deciding to build this was that you have a school of architecture that has to provide so many courses and Marvin Hall does not have the space to do it,” said Dan Rockhill, the architecture professor who advises Studio 804. “Students have to leave studio for a class, so just

ities of Marvin Hall’s old structure, make the Forum a more difficult project than the classes have built in the past. “I think at the scale and the sophistication of this is unique among schools of architecture,” he said. “It’s demanding, and it takes a mix of very dedicated students and faculty to do this kind of thing.” Construction on the $2 million project is expected to be finished in May or June of 2014, and the School of Architecture is working with KU Endowment to raise private funding. Gaunt expects the students, many of whom are taking 19 hours of classes, to be exhausted by the time the Forum is built, but he said the unique experience will be worth their effort. “By commencement, these students will certainly be sleep deprived, and that’s no joke,” Gaunt said. “They’re working 16- and 18hour days, but that’s irrelevant in



New tax cuts save students money
kklein@kansan.com The Kansas Department of Revenue issued a press release Thursday announcing that Kansans are receiving "real tax relief for the first time in decades." Comparing October 2012 to this year, Kansans saved $39 million in individual income taxes. Jeannine Koranda, public information officer at the Kansas Department of Revenue, said in an email that this tax relief affects everyone in Kansas who pays taxes, including students. "If students are earning a paycheck where income tax is taken out, then they will be paying less in taxes and pocketing more of the money they have earned,” Koranda said. Koranda said students are also saving money through lower sales taxes, which affects even students who don't work in Kansas. Compared with surrounding states, Kansas' personal income taxes are roughly in the middle and Kansas has the highest state sales taxes. Students in the University art department use their textile art talents to craft elaborate fashion statements as part of their senior projects.

Popular housing conference comes to campus
tquinlan@kansan.com University students living on campus can expect plenty of visitors in the near future. College delegates from across the midwest will be on campus next fall for a collaborative effort to improve student life within the setting of campus housing. MACURH, or the Midwest Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls, is an organization made up of students involved in student housing at midwest colleges. The University won the bid to host the 2014 MACURH conference from Oct. 28 - Nov. 1, edging the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The decision was announced at the 2013 MACURH conference, which took place at Saint Louis University from Oct. 25 - 27. This is the first time in 20 years that the University has hosted one of these conferences. MACURH board member, Tyler Treptow, estimates about 300 - 400 representatives from over 30 schools are expected to attend the conference next year. Sophomore nursing student Laura Wehmeir is vice-chair of the 2014 MACURH conference. Wehmeier explained many criteria are considered when picking a college to host the conference, but believes the enthusiasm and excitement of her peers that represent the school set it apart. The benefits for the eight University students who have worked to bring MACURH to campus have not only been professional, they’ve been personal. “We’ve all become extremely good friends throughout the process. We’re very close to one another,” Wehmeier said. Those attending the conference will network and participate in team building exercises with others involved in student housing from around the midwest. Much of the conference will involve ‘programming sessions’ where attendees will brainstorm and share ideas for programs that improve student social and academic life. Wehmeier shared a program called “The Game of YOLO” which helps keep students safe by educating them about alcohol awareness and other hazards college students face. One activity in the program has students in residence halls play Mario Kart while texting to simulate the real-life dangers of texting and driving. Delegates who learn about these programs at MACURH conferences are free to implement the programs at their own universities.

Eight University students (from left to right) Kaitlin McAlexander, Katie Gerard, Austin Keehn, Luke Maxfield, Brock Duran, Laura Wehmeier, Taylor Hanna and Skylar Johnson, won the bid to bring the popular college housing conference, MACURH, to campus next fall for its 2014 conference. Taylor Hanna, a junior majoring in applied behavioral science and the conference chair for the 2014 MACURH conference, looks forward to hosting. “It’s really a great honor for KU. It’s just something every KU student can take pride in,” Hanna said. The MACURH conference is a rare opportunity for the school to show all it has to offer to representa-

Seniors design elaborate fashions for final
mfarber@kansan.com A few talented seniors in the University’s art department are “going out with a bang,” as senior John Dennis puts it. The University students have used their various talents in textile art to create fashion statements. The students are currently creating pieces for their senior projects. Critiques will take place during finals week this December. Their final projects are a reflection of their progress throughout the whole semester. Along with their professors, seniors will have the chance to critique their classmates’ final pieces. “My art is different because it has a functional aspect,” said Dennis, a senior from Kansas City, Mo. “I’ve always been trying to find a merger between architecture and fashion. What I’m doing draws back to my roots in architecture; I’m always looking for structure.” Dennis has hand made a button-down shirt and then dyed it with indigo. He is currently crocheting a cardigan to accompany the shirt. Dennis has interned with emerging fashion designers in New York City, and said he would like to work with smaller-scale designers after he graduates to have a more hands-on experience with fashion and production. Sarah Travis, a senior from Overland Park, is also a textile design student. She is currently working part time at Altar Bridal, a highend bridal store in Kansas City, where she works one-on-one with designers. Travis has applied her talents in embroidery to her passion for bridal wear. “I’m creating something that isn’t along the lines of what you expect to see from an art student,” Travis said. “I wanted to show that bridal isn’t just a white dress. In my work, the dresses are pieces of art.” After trying her hand at making a wedding dress, Travis then moved on to embroidered-collared necklaces. Other than working with Altar Bridal, Travis also works as an apprentice to a bridal accessory designer in Kansas City. Chante Gossett, a senior from Olathe, has taken her senior project to the next level: she showed her five-piece collection at the West 18th Street Fashion Show this past summer in Kansas City, Mo. Gossett has taken the initiative to put on a showcase for her ten-piece Spring 2014 collection, “Confetti.” Her collection will be shown at The Bauer in Kansas City

Olathe senior Chante Gossett designed this dress as part of her final project. Gossett showed some of her creations at a fashion show in Kansas City over the summer. on Nov. 19, where she is expecting an audience of about 250-300 people. “I have a lot of confidence in what I’m doing,” Gossett said. “I’m coming out with something I can offer immediately. It’s functional but still an art form.” Gossett started developing her work over the past three semesters. She has hand dyed and hand printed all of her fabrics through an intensive process using disperse dye to transfer her patterns to fabric in a heat press. “I think I can really start this [line] and make it something,” Gossett said. “After 18th Street, I had a big realization that I have an amazing support system here. It’s


all becoming real now.” Gossett plans to develop a full line of hand-dyed and hand-printed garments To find out more about about Gossett and her collections, visit her website at http://www.chantegossett.com. — Edited by Paige Lytle

the sense of the value. What’s not irrelevant is the commitment they bring to it, the energy they bring to it. That’s valuable in the long run.” Christine Harwood, a masters student in Studio 804 from St. Louis, reiterated that personally designing and building the Forum provides a unique experience for her that other schools of architecture can’t. “I was attracted to KU five years ago because of this program,” Harwood said. “When you see a design process all the way through, to now when we’re building it ourselves, I’ll be so much more knowledgeable. And when you know the process as it goes down the hands, you can create those details better too.” — Edited by Casey Hutchins


Kobach seeks opinion on guns at polling places
TOPEKA — Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has asked Attorney General Derek Schmidt for a ruling on whether a new state law allowing concealed carry in most public buildings includes polling places. Polling sites in Kansas are often found in places where guns are not usually allowed, such as churches, schools, universities and charity organizations, The Wichita Eagle reported. Guns have also been prohibited as a general rule from polling places to prevent voter intimidation or interference with elections, Kobach said. But there is "some ambiguity in the law" over whether Kansas polling places would be considered "leased" property under the new concealed-carry law. If they are, the law says licensed gun owners must be allowed to carry their weapons on the premises, unless the county files a detailed security plan for each site and provides protective measures such as metal detectors and guards to run them. "We've invited the attorney general to weigh in before we issue any guidance to the counties," Kobach told the newspaper. Public officials can request an attorney general's opinion on legal questions that haven't been decided by a court. The opinions aren't considered law but can be used as guidance until an issue is tested. Brad Bryant, elections director in the Secretary of State's Office, gave election commissioners and county clerks from around Kansas an update on the issue during a recent convention in Wichita. "Our understanding right now is that a building, a facility, that is owned or leased by a municipality, including for a polling place, would be subject to the (concealed carry) law," he said. "When you lease a private property, it becomes a municipal property on Election Day, that's our understanding." Rep. Tom Sawyer of Wichita, ranking Democrat on the House elections committee, said there could be difficulties in finding polling sites if weapons have to be allowed. He said some churches and nonprofit groups that open their property for voting sites may have second thoughts if they have to allow guns. "It's hard enough as it is to come up with a building that's going to be open all day and that's handicapped-accessible," he said.

Paul Rudd: I’m so, so psyched he’s on our team for one year. I can’t wait. I love Bill Self, I love Jayhawk basketball, and I’m totally jazzed to watch the season.

Carell: You have to open your heart and open your ear, and you have to listen and appreciation the woman you’re with. How much of the movie was improvised? Carell: The script was in great shape. We did a table read of the script before we shot, it was hilarious. We had that as a starting point, but on any given day, we or Adam (McKay) or Will (Ferrell) would come up with as much material as was on the pages.

How difficult was it to get back in character? Rudd: At times, it didn’t seem difficult at all. I felt like we know these characters pretty well.

‘Ender’s Game’ earns $28M, top slot at weekend box office
LOS ANGELES — “Ender’s Game” scored the No. 1 slot at the weekend box office, earning $28 million in its opening weekend and sending “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” into second place, according to studio estimates Sunday. Lionsgate’s adaptation earned an additional $2 million in five international territories. Based on the novel by Orson Scott Card, “Ender’s Game” stars Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford as intergalactic soldiers. Comments made by Card expressing opposition to gay marriage led some to call for a boycott of the film. But a strong firstplace opening met the studio’s pre-weekend expectations. However, ticket sales didn’t come close to the opening weekends of other young-adult adaptations such as “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games.” It did fare better than “Beautiful Creatures” and “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.” “’Ender’s Game’ is a big budget movie that could be the start of a franchise,” said box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian of Rentrak. “This time of year is not exactly a hotbed of million-dollar openings, but once they launch worldwide, it will do well.” Paramount’s comedy starring Johnny Knoxville disguised as an old man brought in an additional $20.5 million in its second weekend, with a domestic total reaching more than $62 million. It also picked up $6 million in international ticket sales. Other films opening this weekend didn’t generate as much enthusiasm. CBS Films’ “Last Vegas,” featuring an all-star cast of silver screen veterans including Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline, opened in third place, with $16.5 million. Overseas, Disney’s “Thor: The Dark World” earned an impressive $109.4 million in its first international weekend. The Marvel superhero sequel opens domestically next weekend.

Eminem’s new LP restores success

Eminem is widely regarded as one of the greatest rappers of all time, and rightfully so. In his illustrious career he’s released three classic albums and held the title of the best-selling artist of the 2000s. For all of his past success, Eminem hasn’t released a solid project since 2002’s “The Eminem Show.” But with “The Marshall Mathers LP 2,” he looks to return to his former glory. The production on the album is primarily handled by Eminem himself as well as legendary producer Rick Rubin who’s known for his work with The Beastie Boys, Johnny Cash and Kanye West, most recently. The production on the album is solid overall, but the real gems are the tracks produced by Rubin. “Rhyme or Reason” features a sample of The Zombies’ “Time of the Season” which provides smooth production that complements Eminem well. Even though the lyrics on “Berserk” aren’t up to par, the beat is fantastic. It’s a callback to Rubin’s work with The Beastie Boys and gives off a golden-era vibe. Eminem generally returns to form when it comes to lyrics. Eminem is angry on this album and he’s usually at his best when angry. Throughout the album he talks about his relationship with his parents among other typical Eminem topics. On “Headlights,” he talks about his relationship with

his mother, essentially apologizing and wanting to start over with her. It’s not what’s expected of Eminem, and it’s truly amazing. Although there are many high notes on this album, there are also quite a few lows. Eminem has been known to make witty remarks in his songs regarding pop culture, but on this album some of his references are quite dated. He often references celebrities who aren’t relevant, like Kevin Federline. A Kevin Federline reference might have witty in 2005, but in 2013 it just isn’t creative. For the last few years, Eminem has been doing this weird screaming thing with his voice that can be very off-putting. This weird screaming makes a return in MMLP2, but doesn’t occur as often as it did on his last two albums and even comes off as emotional in a few tracks. For the most part, Eminem has returned to form. After more than ten years, he finally gives fans a solid project. — Edited by Elise Reuter

‘Last Vegas’ an aging rerun of ‘The Hangover’
It’s easy to imagine our grandparents spending their days sorting pills and doing pool aerobics. Crazy weekends in Vegas don’t seem to be on the menu. Director Jon Turteltaub’s latest film “Last Vegas” shows us our assumptions are a little misguided. “Last Vegas” follows septuagenarians Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas and Kevin Kline as they hit Sin City for one insane weekend. Sam (Kline), Archie (Freeman), Paddy (De Niro) and Billy (Douglas) have been friends since they were nine. More than 60 years later, they’re living in separate cities and Billy and Paddy aren’t speaking. When Billy announces that he’s getting married, the team reunites for the bachelor party in Vegas.

end result is “Hangover”-esque. And that’s the point. “Last Vegas” is marketed as a more accessible “Hangover” and, largely, it succeeds. The movie is funny and light-hearted in most parts and generally keeps it clean. Most of the humor comes from the age of the main characters—i.e., the scenes of them unhappily doing water aerobics and sorting their pills. One of the movie’s highlights is Archie’s first experience with Red Bull and vodka (“It’s like I’m getting drunk and electrocuted at the same time!”). The movie’s main drawback is its predictability. From the beginning,

it’s obvious where the plot is going and how the movie’s going to end. We all know that Billy will not be marrying his 33-year-old fiancée and eventually he’ll reconcile with Paddy. Archie will stand up to his over-protective son and they’ll all fly off into the sunset toward their respective cities.

CLEVELAND — One of three women who escaped from a ramshackle Cleveland home after more than a decade in captivity is about to share her story. Michelle Knight will appear on the “Dr. Phil” show Tuesday and Wednesday in a taped interview. The show says Knight “describes the horrible conditions in the house” and discusses her physical, mental and sexual abuse. That includes “being tied up like a fish” and spending weeks chained

and tortured in the basement, according to the show. Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus escaped May 6 when Berry pushed out a door and yelled for help. Their kidnapper, Ariel Castro, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison. He hanged himself Sept. 3. On “Dr. Phil,” Knight will also discuss how she was able to survive her ordeal. She was 20 years old when she was kidnapped in August 2002. “Three women were taken, three women were rescued, but only two went home,” said Phil McGraw, referring to Knight’s

decision not to reunite with her family. The Knight interview was announced earlier as three segments but was trimmed. “When you listen to her describe the horrible living conditions and how she was treated, you wonder how anyone lasted a day let alone more than a decade. In the 12 years of doing the ‘Dr. Phil’ show, no one has changed me like Michelle Knight and her story of survival.” A coroner ruled Castro’s death a suicide but an Ohio prisons report indicated he may have died accidentally.




Texas game slips away as quarterback quarrel continues
mgoodwin@kansan.com; chybl@kansan.com


The offense began the game with a drive that went deep into Texas territory, only to result in a missed field goal. It appeared Kansas would go into halftime scoreless until a 43-yard pass from Jake Heaps to Rodriquez Coleman set up a field goal. The Jayhawks turned the ball over just once, but it was a costly one, a fumble returned for a touchdown.

Weis said after the game that he didn’t believe the defense did what it needed to do to win, and it’s hard to disagree. Texas quarterback Case McCoy completed 20-of-29 passes, and the Longhorns racked up 221 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. The lone bright spot for the defense was Isaiah Johnson, who did have two interceptions on the day.

It seemed like Jake Heaps was able to move the ball and complete passes in the first quarter, but freshman Montell Cozart was brought in at the start of the second quarter after those drives resulted in no points on the board for the Jayhawks. That’s when the offense began to stall and lose rhythm.

Kicker Matthew Wyman missed a 31-yard field goal after the Jayhawks were able to put together a decent drive to start the game, and was benched for Ron Doherty. Punter Trevor Pardula had a punt of 63 and 68 yards, but also had one for 21 yards.

The 20-yard rushing touchdown by Montell Cozart in the 4th quarter. The touchdown should be enough to start calling it a quarterback quarrel between Cozart and Heaps. And since Cozart was the only Jayhawk to get the ball to the endzone on Saturday, it may be unspoken but more clear, the rest of this year and next year is setting up for a Heaps vs. Cozart battle.

As in many games this season, Kansas held its own and managed to let the game slip away with essentially two plays: a roughing the punter call that helped Texas to a touchdown and a Jake Heaps fumble that was returned for a touchdown. The two plays were huge blows to a Kansas team that looked to hold its own ground — just enough to keep hope alive for a Big 12 win somewhere along the line this season.

The offense was unable to find the endzone until the second team defense hit the field for Texas. Heaps and Cozart almost evenly split possessions, a sign that Charlie Weis is digging further into a quarterback controversy.

Back come the kicking problems. It was apparent that Matthew Wyman was still struggling Saturday when he missed a 31-yard field goal on Kansas’ opening drive. Ron Doherty came on and laced his 21 and 27 yard attempts during the game. The two converted field goals will probably be enough for a little kicking controversy for the rest of the season, and is also likely to add a little more unneeded pressure between the two kickers.


After two solid offensive drives led by Heaps, Weis decided to go with backup quarterback Montell Cozart. Taking Heaps out after two drives won’t allow him to get any comfort or confidence under his belt, much less into a rhythm to help Kansas try and win a game.

Montell Cozart. The game ball goes to Cozart because of one play: a 20-yard TD run where Cozart hit the hole and easily sped past defenders for the score. That play secured a ‘big-minutes’ future for the freshman quarterback and was his biggest step towards a starting spot.

As Cozart’s playing time continues to grow, it is hard to pinpoint a time when it will stop. Heaps has shown he is not the quarterback who can come onto the field and consistently put scoring drives together. Kansas fans can start to look to Cozart as the future, because these two won’t live in perfect harmony forever. Kansas is a team desperate for playmakers and Cozart has that edge on Heaps. If Kansas loses next week, they are officially ineligible for a bowl game and that’s when fans can expect next year’s starting quarterback battle to begin.

Kansas is taking on the identity of a team that can play with an opponent for most of a game. But that’s not good enough, and two bad plays in this game (a roughing the punter penalty and the Jake Heaps fumble) managed to derail an attempt for Kansas to get an elusive Big 12 victory. Kansas is the closest they have been as a team to putting together a solid, complete game, but that final push for victory is apparently a lot harder than anyone estimated.

Victory against Oklahoma secures championship spot
sliang@kansan.com In the most crucial game of the season, the Jayhawks came through. The Kansas soccer team (7-10-2, 2-5-1) played its last regular season game Friday needing a win or a tie against Oklahoma (4-13-1, 1-7) to earn a spot in this week’s Big 12 Soccer Championship. Kansas earned a 2-1 victory over Oklahoma and the eighth seed in the tournament. The win was far from smooth. After Kansas got an early 1-0 lead, Oklahoma came back and tied it up with 15 minutes left to play in the match. The last 10 minutes of the game were frantic for both teams and was capped by the winning score with less than three minutes to play. “There have been so many games this year, especially in the conference, where I come off the field at the end of the game and felt really, really good about how we played, but we lost. Today, we played like crap to be honest,” coach Mark Francis said. “We battled and we fought really hard and that’s why we won the game.” Junior midfielder Jamie Fletcher scored both goals for the Jayhawks Friday. She came into the game with 59 shots on the season, which was the most on the team and fourth overall in the league, but only had one goal. Fletcher put the Jayhawks on top 1-0 with 16 minutes left in the first half on a play that started with a corner kick. Junior defender Haley Yearout sent the corner toward sophomore midfielder Hanna Kallmaier. Senior forward Caroline Kastor took possession of the ball and had a shot blocked by a Sooner defender. Off that rebound and amidst the scramble, Fletcher kicked the ball in for a score. She said she credits some of her offensive explosion to just being at the right place at the right time. "In the first goal, the ball was just sitting there and I was like ‘ahhh’ and hit it in,” Fletcher said. “Sometimes you’re lucky.” In the second half, the Jayhawks were looking to protect their lead. Often, when Oklahoma was making an offensive attack, every Kansas player on the field was on their side of the field playing defense. With about 15 minutes left to play, the Oklahoma offense came through with its own goal. Oklahoma forward Daisy Cardona grabbed a loose ball in front of the net and sent it in past junior goalkeeper Kaitlyn Stroud. The Sooners seemed to have grabbed the momentum and started looking for a second goal or to send the match into overtime. The comeback would fall short when Oklahoma goalkeeper Kassidie Stade earned a red card and an ejection with less than five minutes left. Kastor had run past the defense and was one-on-one with Stade, who came out of the box and tackled Kastor. Stade was replaced by Miranda Larkin who had only played in two previous games. Larkin would concede the winning goal to Fletcher in the 88th minute. Fletcher knocked in a header off a corner by Yearout. Both teams had missed opportunities to score before these final minutes. Oklahoma missed a penalty kick wide right, and Kastor had three run-outs and shots that

She has 99 on the season, which is the most among conference goalkeepers. The match also marked the last regular season game for three seniors on the team. Kastor and defenders Madi Hillis and Shannon Renner were honored in the Senior Day festivities. All three saw double-digit minutes in the match, and Kastor is currently tied for second on Kansas’ all time goal-scoring chart. “The three seniors are awesome,” Fletcher said, “I just want them to play more games and keep on going.” Friday was also the last time Kansas will play at Jayhawk Soccer Complex. Next season, the Jayhawks will move their matches to Rock Chalk Park, which is currently under construction. As the eighth seed in the tour-


nament, Kansas will face the number one seed West Virginia on Wednesday, Nov. 6, the first day of the three-day tournament. West Virginia is the regular season champion and is 7-1 in conference play, including a 2-0 victory against the Jayhawks on Oct. 18. The game is scheduled for 5:30 p.m., and will be played at Swope Soccer Village in Kansas City, Mo. —Edited by Casey Hutchins


Jayhawks finish strong at Big 12 championships
dharmsen@kansan.com women’s side was deep with talent as well. Forty-six of the 81 athletes competing on the men’s side finished the 8k race averaging less than 5 minutes per mile, and the first female finisher Marielle Hall, from the University of Texas, finished the 6k course in 19:38.3, averaging 5:16 per mile. The defending National Champion, Oklahoma State, won yet another Big 12 Championship on the men’s side, and the Iowa State Cyclones repeated as well on the women’s side. The Jayhawks ran tough, but the pack spread out a little too much for coach Stanley Redwine’s liking. “I thought our front guys ran well today, but as a team they didn’t run as well as I wanted them to,” Redwine said. Josh Munsch added his thoughts on the meet and the blazing fast pace early on in the race. “The race went out pretty quickly and never really slowed down,” Munsch said. “We were expecting to make a move around the 4 or 5k mark, but it went out pretty fast.” The women’s side ran well, but their inexperience surfaced against the veteran competition. “We’re young, and when you’re young there are going to be some mistakes made and things to improve upon,” Redwine added. “When you’re that close to third place, there are definitely some things you’re doing well.” Richardson completed the 6k course in 20:56.8, averaging 5:36 per mile, but sees the NCAA Midwest Regional race in Ames, Iowa on Friday, Nov. 15 as an opportunity to cap off an excellent season. “I went out with the front girls, but around the 3k I wasn’t aggressive enough,” Richardson said. “The last half of the race is really when the race starts. I didn’t think I did as well as I could have today.” The Jayhawks will have two weeks to work on bringing runners 4-7 closer to the front of the pack. If they can do that, these young teams will make Redwine and the rest of the Jayhawk nation smile. — Edited by James Ogden ­


On a beautiful November morning at the Big 12 Championships, hosted by the Cottonwood Creek Golf Course in Waco, Texas, the Kansas Men’s and Women’s Cross Country teams took 6th and 7th place respectively. The men’s team was led by senior Josh Munsch, who crossed the tape at 23:36.8, and juniors Evan Landes, Reid Buchanan and James Wilson. With their 13th and 15th place finishes, Munsch and Landes were named All-Conference. Sophomore Hannah Richardson was at the front of the women’s pack, and also earned All-Conference. She finished the 6k race in 11th place, the highest Big 12 finish by a Jayhawk in two seasons. Twin freshmen Nashia Baker and Malika Baker placed 28th and 32nd, senior Natalie Becker took 33rd, and freshman Courtney Coppington rounded out the five in 41st. The competition was particularly stiff this year. The men faced three teams in the top 30, and the

shot just 1-7 from the field before the first media timeout. “They came out and threw a punch, which is what you should do,” coach Bonnie Henrickson said. Eventually the Jayhawks settled down, taking a two point halftime lead 33-31 after a sluggish first half. Something happened in the locker room during the half though, because the Jayhawks came out firing on all cylinders defensively. “I thought for us, the best part of the whole afternoon was the run we had coming out of the locker room, which was probably the cushion we needed to get the win,” Henrickson said. “Someone asked me if we changed things defensively and adjusted, and the honest answer to that is no.” There may not have been any adjustments to the game plan, but the intensity of Kansas’ defense was much higher to start the second half, and the girls were fired up. “I thought they had a little more intensity [on defense]. They went on a little bit of a run, and that hurt us,” Emporia State guard Haley Parker said. The Jayhawks began the second half with a 7-0 run to take a 41-33 lead. ESU did not score until the 16:40 mark, and the Jayhawks never looked back. “I thought there was a stretch there in the second half where we missed four or five [shots] right there at the rim,” Emporia State coach Jory Collins said. “We executed and just didn’t make the shot.

Obviously their length and athleticism keeps you from doing a lot of things.” The Jayhawks’ defense held ESU to 23.3 percent shooting for the game. In the second half, the Hornets shot just 5-35 from the field, a meager 14.3 percent. Laura Patrick, the Hornets leading returning scorer, shot just 2-10 from the field. Henrickson said the Jayhawks needed their defense to step up, because offensively they were not executing as well as she would have liked. “We were aggressive at times and didn’t make good decisions,” Henrickson said. “When we did [make good decisions], we made a great run and [created] some great opportunities.” Junior guard Natalie Knight said she thinks Kansas’ defense can have this kind of intensity every night, but the team needs to work on its consistency on the defensive end of the floor. “I think at times we were really good, but we’ve just got to bring it every night,” Knight said. “We need to increase our ball pressure and boxing out is going to be big for us down the stretch.” The real season starts next week for the Jayhawks, with a game against Oral Roberts Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. in Allen Fieldhouse. — Edited by James Ogden

Pumpkin chunking provides unique entertainment

contest, ranging from catapults to huge air vessel machines. Another is the human power class of chunkers, and although they don’t propel the pumpkin as far as some machines, this class has turned out to be an annual fan favorite. Unlike the other six classes, the human-powered machines launch their pumpkins by using stored energy produced by a single member of a team. For two minutes that person generates and transfers energy from a device attached to their punkin chunker, whether that be a bicycle or an old rowing machine. Usually the wackier the team, the crazier the device is that is used to produce energy. At the conclusion of those two minutes, the punkin chunker is locked and then fires, but only after a loud horn warns spectators, which is mandatory before every chunk. While the human-powered machines bring the laughs, the air vessel machines bring the distance. Using compressed air these sometimes house-sized ma-

ake off the pads, put down the bat, because the only equipment needed to play this game is a well rounded pumpkin. Well, that and a one ton punkin chunker. For those unaware of this scientific sport, Punkin Chunkin involves teams building machines capable of launching pumpkins as far as possible. It’s that simple. Shockingly though, punkin chunkin hasn’t always been well-known. It started in 1986 when four friends saw a news story of a local college’s physics class throwing pumpkins, and one said they could throw a pumpkin farther than the other. A competition ensued and the rest is history. This year’s Punkin Chunkin World Championship took place over the weekend in the farm fields of Bridgeview, Delaware, hosting 72 teams and thousands of fans during a three day festival which included a Miss Punkin Chunkin Beauty Pageant, cooking contest, fireworks, and pumpkins traveling upwards of 4000 feet. Definitely a step up from four guys standing in a corn field 27 years ago, with the longest throw being 126 feet. In all there are seven different classes of machines that compete during this

chines launch pumpkins thousands of feet, and other times no feet at all. Occasionally the pumpkin will burst after leaving the barrel, which is referred to as “pie” at Punkin Chunkin, and means the pumpkins distant will not count since it didn’t remain whole before hitting the ground. Because it’s important for teams to have every pumpkin count, some competitors are known to grow their own using “special” methods to create better pumpkins for throwing. Whether teams are growing their own pumpkins or buying them like normal people, they must use one of the pumpkin varieties listed by the World Championship Punkin Chunkin Association, and any use of pumpkins not on the list will lead to a disqualification.

What may be best about this event isn’t the absurd distances some pumpkins will travel, but the cause behind chunking. This year there was $100,000 in revenue, and more than $70,000 will be distributed in scholarships to community organizations, along with nine nonprofits that the WCPCA supports. To watch the 2013 Punkin Chunkin World Championship tune in to the Science Channel at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, I guarantee there’s not another sport quite like it. — Edited by Evan Dunbar

Kansas grinds out four-set road victory against TCU

Kansas (18-5, 8-2) overcame a sluggish opening set to top the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs (13-11, 2-8) 20-25, 25-20, 2518, 25-23 in Fort Worth, Texas, on Saturday. The Jayhawks remained undefeated on the road in conference play with the win. Their toughest road tests remain as they will travel to face first-place Texas, second-place Iowa State (tied with Kansas) and third-place Oklahoma. Even with

the slow start, coach Ray Bechard was pleased with the team’s play at this crucial stretch in the season. “Obviously there are some areas we could have been cleaner in,” Bechard said. “But a 3-1 win this time of the year on the road against a good team, we’re very happy with.” Redshirt senior middle blocker Caroline Jarmoc and junior outside hitter Sara McClinton, who lead the team in kills per set, both struggled as they finished with a combined 16 kills on a .06 hitting percentage. Picking up some of the slack

Redshirt senior outside hitter was Tayler Soucie as she delivered 12 digs on a .571 hitting percent- Catherine Carmichael led the squad with 16 age.

ing both teams with 14 digs. Senior libero Brianne Riley again reached double-digits with 13 digs. Junior outside hitter Chelsea Albers was an offensive and defensive threat as well as she finished with 14 kills and seven digs. The Jayhawks completed the season sweep of TCU for the second straight year and are now 4-0 against the Horned Frogs since they joined the Big 12 last season. Kansas has lost just two sets in the four matches combined. Despite being ranked last in the conference in service aces, the Jay-

hawks cranked out a season-high eight on Saturday. McNorton and Riley tied for the team high with two apiece. “Our serving keyed the third set run and the fourth set run, so it was huge for us,” Bechard said. Kansas returns home to take on West Virginia on Wednesday before its biggest test of the season as the team travels to Austin, Texas to face the No.1 Texas Longhorns.

Redshirting can help players grow

Second-half scoring run brings Jayhawks victory against Emporia State
Chelsea Gardner’s layup forced Emporia State to take a timeout. “For us the best part of the whole afternoon was the run we made coming out of the locker room which probably ended up being the cushion we needed to get a win,” Henrickson said. The run was capped by a layup by Harper. Boyd had forced a turnover on the other end of the court and gathered the loose ball on the floor. She sent the ball Knight’s way and Knight took it down the court and sent a bounce pass to Harper, who was waiting around the basket. sliang@kansan.com In a game where both teams struggled to score, tight defense and timely scoring were enough for the Kansas women’s basketball team to beat the Emporia State Lady Hornets 61-53. Senior backup guard CeCe Harper led the Jayhawks with 15 points and anchored the offense from the point guard position when many of the starters were on the bench in foul trouble. Coach Bonnie Henrickson said she credits Harper being a senior and her sense of urgency. “She came out and did her job,” Henrickson said Harper made six out of 10 field goal attempts. Four of her six rebounds were offensive, including one that led to field goal by junior guard Asia Boyd. “I just knew we needed some energy,” Harper said. “This was a game we needed to win, and this was a game that would build our confidence for the season starting next week. I just wanted to do whatever I could to help the team.” Kansas shot 37 percent from the field for the game while Emporia State shot 23 percent, including 14 percent in the second half. The Jayhawks shot better from the 3-point line, making 7-16. At the half, the Jayhawks led 3331. They gave themselves the separation they needed for the rest of the game with an 11-2 run to start the second half. Junior guard Natalie Knight started off the scoring with a 3-pointer, one of three she made during the game. Boyd added a jumper, and junior forward

he concept of redshirting has earned a bit of a negative connotation. To some, it’s as if a coach is saying, “You’re not good enough” or “You’re not ready”. In part, this is due to our environment. We’ve grown up in the era of trophies for participation and positive reinforcement because sometimes the truth seems harsher than being lied to. Last week Kansas coach Bill Self said the two exhibition games would help him decide if someone would have to forgo playing this season. If you were to purely guess after perusing the stat sheet from game one, there’s one redshirt candidate who clearly sticks out. Freshman Connor Frankamp was the only Jayhawk with more than a minute of playing time to attempt a shot against Pittsburg State and not score any points (0-3). All three of his attempts were from 3-point range – an area Frankamp specialized in while setting the high school scoring record in Wichita. That is not to say that if Frankamp doesn’t perform well against Fort Hays State on Tuesday he’ll have cost himself the opportunity to compete with the 2013-14 Jayhawks. Earlier in the year, Self said Frankamp would have the “green light” to shoot when he wants. To judge him off his first preseason game in college wouldn’t help anyone. What’s most important to understand is that taking a redshirt is not a punishment, an insult or a death sentence – at least not under Bill Self. “It won’t be because we tell them they have to,” Self said earlier in the year. “It’ll be because we think it’s best for their career.” In recent years, redshirting in Lawrence has helped make college careers. Travis Releford sat out after playing his freshman season in 2008-09. The Kansas City product took the time to work on defense and improving his shot. Last year as a senior he was widely regarded as college basketball’s best perimeter defender and averaged 11.9 points while leading the Jayhawks with 47 steals. Brady Morningstar also sat out his sophomore year. Over his final two seasons at Kansas (2009-11) he shot 44.5 percent from the field and tallied 85 steals. While the NCAA ruled Ben McLemore academically ineligible as a freshman, the extra year of practice helped him become one of the most explosive players in the nation while averaging nearly 16 points per game. Landen Lucas could also be added to this list after sitting out last season, but that remains to be seen. None of these kids sat out because they weren’t good enough. Frankly, if that were the case they likely wouldn’t be playing for Kansas. You could say the same for anyone on this year’s team if the coaches decide to sit a player for the year. So no, a redshirt does not cast off a player. In Self ’s terms it helps them become more effective. “After seeing Travis and Jeff Withey I can’t understand if you’re not in the mix why you, as a young kid, wouldn’t consider that,” Self said at Kansas media day. “If you follow what they did, those guys had unbelievable careers because they were patient.” — Edited by Evan Dunbar

“For us the best part of the whole afternoon was the run we made coming out of the locker room which probably ended up being the cushion we needed to get a win”

The Lady Hornets came out at the start of the game with lots of energy, which helped them to a 9-2 lead. Guard Laura Patrick started the scoring with a 3-pointer, and the Jayhawks spent much of the rest of the half trying to recover. Gardner was efficient in her limited playing time, scoring 11 points in 19 minutes. She received her third foul early in the second half, which sent her to the bench. Knight also scored in double-figures with 13, and Markisha Hawkins had a 10-point outing. Emporia State had two players

They were the 2010 national champions and have won seven MIAA conference championships. “It’s a great opportunity for us to test ourselves against bigger, better athletes and try to find some things we can hang our hat on for the season,” Emporia State coach Jory Collins said. The regular season for the Jayhawks begins Sunday, Nov. 10, against Oral Roberts.


“I think the main takeaway is that we need to get better,” Harper said. “We all need to improve, especially on the defensive end, and we need to develop more camaraderie on the offensive end.” — Edited by Madison Schultz


Latest loss highlights quarterback dilemma

AUSTIN, Texas — Once again, Kansas looked like it had a chance. They created a stir of excitement, and suddenly — in one play — the optimism vanished. The Jayhawks were a tease, losing 35-13 to Texas. Down just 14-6 with momentum on their side, Jake Heaps snapped the ball, and saw a slew of Texas defenders in the backfield. Texas defensive end Cedric Reed took down Heaps, forcing a fumble that defensive tackle Chris Whaley recovered and returned for a touchdown. Heaps, who has been responsible for many of the offensive struggles throughout the season, was once again humble enough to take responsibility for the stripped sack. “It’s my job to secure the football,” Heaps said. “It’s something that I’ll take away and learn from. I put that on myself.” Texas went up by 15 and had the stranglehold on the rest of the game. “This team was a good matchup for how we play,” Weis said. “I thought as long as we kept the game in the 20s, we would have a chance to win.” “Our margin of error is so small that if we give up one game-changing play, you’re fighting a little more of an up-field battle,” Weis said. Kansas hung with Texas for the first half and although it trailed 14-3 at halftime, it limited Texas’ vaunted run game to 99 yards. Kansas opened the game with two explosive, 15 plus yard screen passes to James Sims, as moving the ball didn’t seem like a chore,

Senior runningback James Sims sprints through a hole for a big gain against Texas on Saturday. Sims had 99 total yards in the game, but the Jayhawks lost 35-13. going 58 yards in seven plays. On a third down in Texas territory, Jake Heaps had Tre’ Parmalee wide open for a first down, but overthrew him, which then set up Kansas to take a 3-0 lead on a seemingly routine field goal. Wyman shanked a 31-yarder, however, and Kansas failed to put points on the board. The mix-up quarterback play between Montell Cozart and Jake Heaps continued and even after a favorable first quarter, Weis pulled Heaps for Cozart. After he completed 5-for-7 passes for 64 yards, Heaps’ game was clicking for Kansas’ standards, but was pulled for Cozart early in the second quarter. Weis didn’t think it was premature to pull him out and said that it was suited for where the offense and the game were heading. “It’s not so early, it was the second quarter and we scored zero points,” Weis said. Cozart completed and attempted just one pass for six yards to Jimmay Mundine in the first half. After Kansas’ Billy Owens ran into the Texas punter, the Longhorns went on 15-play, 92-yard drive that spanned over seven minutes to go up 7-0 on a 2-yard Malcolm Brown run. The drive-shifting penalties didn’t stop there. Texas had a third-and-two on its next offensive possession, but Kansas jumped offsides, prolonging the drive that eventually resulted in another Malcolm Brown run. “We had almost all of our penalties in the first half and every one was costly,” Weis said. At the end of the first half, Kansas was given another opportunity to put its first points on the board. Heaps heaved a lob pass to Rodriguez Coleman for 43-yards with 10 seconds left in the half and brought in Ron Doherty to kick a 21-yard field goal to trail just 14-3.


Heaps finished the day 11-of-21 for 160 yards, and while Texas only had two sacks on the day, it was relentless battering Heaps, who admitted that he was in pain after the game. “I’m hurting right now, but I’ll be fine,” Heaps said. “I’ll bounce back,” The final score wasn’t a great indication of how the game transpired and one play — as Kansas has found out the hard way this season — can turn a competitive game into a collapse. “All the momentum in the game changed in one play,” Weis said. — Edited by Evan Dunbar
