As students return to cam-
pus, the University challeng-
es students to explore KU.
Take a stroll by Potter Lake,
discover the great view from the
Campanile, feel the energy that
radiates from Allen Fieldhouse
and don’t forget to document it.
Te University wants you to share
your explorations with your friends,
followers and even strangers in its
social media triathlon #exploreKU.
Associate Director of Interactive
Media Justin Henning came up with
the idea for the social media tri-
atholon and is managing the event.
“Te idea came from realizing a lot
of students are interacting with the
University in social settings,” Hen-
ning said. “We wanted to help stu-
dents connect with their campus.”
For the triathlon, which kicked
of Aug. 23, students are asked
to submit posts in three legs:
write a haiku with the hashtag
#hawKU on Twitter, post a pho-
to of campus on Instagram and
create a video about KU on Vine.
Henning said the contest has
changed from last year to in-
clude Vine instead of FourSquare.
Te triathlon helps publicize the
University and its social media han-
dles. KU parking (@parkingKU),
KU libraries (@kulibraries) and
KU technology (@KUTechnology)
are just a few of the departments
tweeting about the triathlon or
even participating in the event.
Henning said he was pleased with
the content he has seen so far and
welcomes other departments to
participate alongside @parkingKU.
“We want new students to con-
nect with services on campus,”
Henning said. “We also want
them to engage with us and
connect with fellow students.”
He also hopes that students will
continue to use the hashtag afer the
contest closes on Sept. 7 to create
a social community for students.
But the triathlon doesn’t just
beneft the University, it also
benefts students who have
the opportunity to win priz-
es with each leg of the contest.
Alicia Croci, a junior from Ot-
towa, said she found the con-
test on Twitter and hopes to
win the KU Athletics sports
package since she hasn’t bought
her all sports combo yet.
“I think a very efective way to
reach our generation is based on
social media,” Croci said. “Tey’ll
(the University) get the young-
er crowd more involved in KU.”
Tyler Daniels, a freshman from
Hutchinson, joined Instagram spe-
cifcally to compete in the contest.
Daniels said he liked that
the University is reaching
out through social media.
“I don’t think there’s anybody at
KU who doesn’t have some form
of social media,” Daniels said. “It’s
a cool way to connect students.”
Students can enter the triathlon by
using the hashtag “exploreKU” and
win prizes if submitted by Sept. 7.

Even if you have a fear of needles,
the protection that immunizations
provide could be worth the prick.
Te University requires that all
students receive immunizations
or screenings for MMR (measles,
mumps and rubella), and that in-
ternational students are tested for
tuberculosis before they can enroll.
Te KU Immunization Com-
pliance Policy states that any stu-
dent born on or afer January 1,
1957, must show proof of two
separate vaccinations for MMR,
unless they are able to provide
proof of history of the diseases.
According to Melody Volek, a reg-
istered nurse at Watkins Memorial
Health Center, along with the dis-
ease history they also must provide
a positive titer, or blood test, that
checks antibody levels to MMR.
Measles, mumps and rubella are
nearly eradicated in the United
States, yet highly contagious, ac-
cording to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention. Most cases
are brought to the states by a visi-
tor or U.S. citizen traveling abroad.
Te Immunization Policy also re-
quires that all students living in Uni-
versity-owned group housing re-
ceive the meningitis vaccine, or sign
a waiver indicating that they refuse.
Tere are fve ways to con-
tract meningitis, with bacteri-
al and viral meningitis being the
most common and typically the
most serious cases, according
to the CDC. Tese two types of
the disease are also contagious.
Te CDC lists
such as kissing and
sharing cups, as
the primary ways
the diseases are
spread. Viral men-
ingitis, however, is
spread through fe-
such as changing
a diaper or not
hands afer visiting the restroom.
Volek said student housing is
an easy way to spread meningitis.
“People living in dorms are sharing
close quarters, drinking out of each
other’s cups, eating of of each other’s
plates and having sex,” Volek said.
Bacterial meningitis can cause
symptoms such as fever, inability or
difculty touching the chin to the
chest, seizures and vomiting, ac-
cording to the Meningitis Research
Foundation. If not promptly treat-
ed, long-term complications could
occur such as weakening of the
immune system, lack of oxygen to
fngers, toes and limbs which could
end in amputation and even death.
Other ways to contract menin-
spores or par-
asites that con-
water or soil.
Te disease can
also be non-in-
f e c t i o u s —o r
which is caused
lupus, brain injury or sur-
gery, according to the CDC.
Te majority of students coming
to the University will already have
MMR and meningitis vaccinations,
Volek said, but it is important to
think about additional vaccinations.
She recommends getting a tetanus
shot (or tetanus booster every 10
years if you have previously received
the vaccination), chickenpox vac-
cine for anyone who has not had
the disease, and an annual fu shot.
Volek also encourages students to
consider the human papillomavirus
(HPV) vaccine. Tis virus lives in the
mucous membranes and is spread
through kissing or sexual contact.
HPV is a major cause of cervical
cancer. Until recently, the vaccine
was only targeted toward women
from nine to 23 years old. Volek said
even males should consider getting
the vaccine to prevent genital warts
and transmitting the virus to others.
“Getting vaccinated means not
only protecting yourself, but protect-
ing those around you,” Volek said.
Students planning on traveling
abroad can make an appointment
at the center to talk to a doctor
about where they are traveling and
which vaccinations they will need.
To schedule an appointment,
contact the Watkins Memorial
Health Center at 785-864-9500.

Among the whirlwind of new
classes, teachers and syllabi, Uni-
versity students will experience
new food options to enjoy and
look forward to this coming year.
Panda Express, the restaurant
chain known for such favor-
ites as orange chicken, Beijing
beef and kung pao chicken, is
coming to campus. Te popular
fast-food Asian restaurant is ex-
pected to arrive in January 2014,
on the third foor of KU Memo-
rials Union, near Te Market.
“I think it will be widely success-
ful,” said David Mucci, Director
of KU Memorial Unions. “I think
it will be a great addition to cam-
pus and its diferent oferings.”
Te Market itself experienced
some remodeling during the
summer. Its look and food of-
ferings have been changed ex-
tensively and include Serrano’s
Latin Cuisine, World Kitchen
International Comfort Foods,
Sweet Baby Jay Bakery and Ear-
ly Bird Made-to-order breakfast.
Elsewhere on campus, anoth-
er popular chain, Café Spice,
opened earlier this week. It is
one of the many food ofer-
ings in Te Underground and
has already proved popular.
“We were actually really sur-
prised,” said Brandon Heidel,
General Manager of Café Spice.
“We sold out of a lot of things and
we were just constantly cooking.”
It has an emphasis on vegan, veg-
etarian and gluten-free dishes. Te
franchise is focused in the North-
east part of the country, and this
is its frst location in the Midwest.
Along with the new food ofer-
ings in Te Union and Te Un-
derground, Mrs. E’s, the Daisy
Hill staple, also saw some chang-
es. A complete renovation hap-
pened over the summer, which
started from the last meal of the
spring semester and ended be-
fore the dinner meal last Friday.
New food concepts were added,
such as KYou Zone, a food op-
tion that caters to students with
special diets, Smokey’s, which
ofers smoked meats and house-
made barbecue sauce, and Al
Dente, serving a variety of pas-
ta and grain-focused dishes.
Tese changes, along with the ar-
rival of Panda Express, Café Spice
and improvements to Te Market,
were made based on results from
a survey KU Memorial Unions
distributed last spring. Te survey
asked students about their dining
preferences and what they would
like to have available on campus.
Claudia Larkin, Director of Mar-
keting for KU Memorial Unions,
said she thinks the changes will be
successful, especially the arrival
of Panda Express and Café Spice.
“I think they will be received
really well, particularly since
what drove the decision to put
those two particular restaurants
in was student input telling us
about the kinds of food they want
to see on campus,” Larkin said.

New campus dining options to open
In this Friday, Aug. 9 photo, a tour group waits for an interactive experience
to begin before entering the vault chamber containing the “secret recipe” for
Coca-Cola at the World of Coca-Cola museum, in Atlanta.
ATLANTA — Coca-Cola
keeps the recipe for its 127-year-
old soda inside an imposing
steel vault that's bathed in red
security lights. Several cameras
monitor the area to make sure
the fzzy formula stays a secret.
But in one of the many signs
that the surveillance is as
much about theater as reali-
ty, the images that pop up on
video screens are of smiling
tourists waving at themselves.
"It's a little bit for show," con-
cedes a guard at the World of
Coca-Cola museum in down-
town Atlanta, where the vault
is revealed at the end of an
exhibit in a puf of smoke.
Te ability to push a quaint
narrative about a product's ori-
gins and fuel a sense of nostalgia
can help drive billions of dollars
in sales. Tat's invaluable at a
time when food makers face
greater competition from small-
er players and cheaper super-
market store brands that appeal
to cash-strapped Americans.
It's why companies such as
Coca-Cola and Twinkies' own-
er Hostess play up the notion
that their recipes are sacred, un-
changing documents that need
to be closely guarded. As it turns
out, some recipes have changed
over time, while others may not
have. Either way, they all stick
to the same script that their for-
mulas have remained the same.
John Ruf, who former-
ly headed research & devel-
opment at Kraf Foods, said
companies ofen recalibrate
ingredients for various rea-
sons, including new regula-
tions, fuctuations in commod-
ity costs and other issues that
impact mass food production.
"It's almost this mythological
thing, the secret formula," said
the president of the Institute of
Food Technologists, which stud-
ies the science of food. "I would
be amazed if formulas (for
big brands) haven't changed."
Tis summer, the Twinkies
cream-flled cakes many Amer-
icans grew up snacking on
made a comeback afer being of
shelves for about nine months
following the bankruptcy of
Hostess Brands. At the time,
the new owners promised the
spongy yellow cakes would
taste just like people remember.
A representative for Host-
ess, Hannah Arnold, said in an
email that Twinkies today are
"remarkably close to the origi-
nal recipe," noting that the frst
three ingredients are still en-
riched four, water and sugar.
Yet a box of Twinkies now
lists more than 25 ingredients
and has a shelf-life of 45 days,
almost three weeks longer
than the 26 days from just a
year ago. Tat suggests the in-
gredients have been tinkered
with, to say the least, since
they were created in 1930.
WASHINGTON — Secretary
of State John Kerry on Monday
outlined the clearest justifcation
yet for U.S. military action in Syr-
ia, saying there was "undeniable"
evidence of a large-scale chemical
weapons attack, with intelligence
strongly signaling that Bashar
Assad's regime was responsible.
Kerry, speaking to reporters at
the State Department, said last
week's attack "should shock the
conscience" of the world.
"Te indiscriminate slaughter of
civilians, the killing of women and
children and innocent bystanders
by chemical weapons is a moral
obscenity. By any standard, it is
inexcusable and — despite the
excuses and equivocations that
some have manufactured — it
is undeniable," said Kerry, the
highest-ranking U.S. ofcial to
confrm the attack in the Da-
mascus suburbs that activists say
killed hundreds of people.

be violated without consequenc-
es," he added.

U.S., along with
allies in Europe,

most aggressive response since
Syria's civil war began more than
two years ago.
Two administration ofcials said
the U.S. was expected to make
public a more formal determina-
tion of chemical weapons use on
Tuesday, with an announcement
of Obama's response likely to fol-
low quickly. Te ofcials insisted
on anonymity because they were
not authorized to publicly discuss
the internal deliberations.
Te international community
appeared to be considering action
that would punish Assad for de-
ploying deadly gases, not sweep-
ing measures aimed at ousting the
Syrian leader or strengthening
rebel forces. Te focus of the
internal debate underscores the
scant international appetite for a
large-scale deployment of forces
in Syria and the limited number
of other options that could signif-
cantly change the trajectory of the
"We continue to believe that
there's no military solution here
that's good for the Syrian people,
and that the best path forward is a
political solution," State Depart-
ment spokeswoman Marie Harf
said. "Tis is about the violation of
an international norm against the
use of chemical weapons and how
we should respond to that. "
Te Obama administration was
moving ahead even as a United
Nations team already on the
ground in Syria collected evidence
from last week's attack. Te U.S.
said Syria's delay in giving the
inspectors access rendered their
investigation meaningless and

part on the number of reported
victims, the symptoms of those
injured or killed and witness

said the U.S. had additional
intelligence confrming chemical
weapons use and planned to make
it public in the coming days.
Ofcials stopped short of un-
equivocally stating that Assad's
government was behind the at-
tack. But they said there was "very
little doubt" that it originated with
the regime, noting that Syria's

It's unclear whether Obama
would seek authority from the
U.N. or Congress before using

frequently about his preference
for taking military action only
with international backing, but it
is likely Russia and China would
block U.S. eforts to authorize
action through the U.N. Security

Hulu bolsters varied lineup
with popular foreign shows
Strengthen roommate bonds
with housewarming dinner
With Netfix making original shows, such as the
hits “House of Cards” and “Orange is the New-
Black,” Hulu is trying to respond with what they
call “exclusive programming.” In general, these are
television shows that have become hits in other
places, such as Ireland and the United Kingdom.
While this is a great idea, there are quite a few shows
to look through (and watching ads is totally lame),
so it is hard to pick one to watch. However, since the
service is free, there really isn’t any good reason not
to watch a few of them. Lucky for us, three of these
hidden shows are defnitely worth checking out.
Recycle, Recycle, Recycle, Recycle, Recycle
For comedy fans, this show is where it’s at. Fol-
lowing the life of a 12-year-old and his imaginary
friend, “Moone Boy,” is a fun and heartfelt show
from Ireland. Chris O’Dowd (from “Bridesmaids”),
not only stars as the imaginary friend, but is cred-
ited as the creator and one of the writers. He also
narrates throughout the course of the show, so that
we not only get the imagination from the young
boy, but the unique perspective of an imaginary
character. Also, since Hulu only has the six episodes
in the frst season, it is very easy to just watch them
all in one night.
“The Thick of It”
Following the introduction of Peter Capaldi as the
newest doctor for “Doctor Who,” British television
fans have been trying to become familiar with him
as an actor. Te place to start would defnitely be
“Te Tick of It,” a British political satire that focuses
on the modern government. What makes this show
worth watching is, in fact, the amazing cast. While
much of the script is written by the writers, there are
also many points where the cast chooses to impro-
vise. On the whole, this makes the television show
more honest and also demonstrates why Capaldi was
selected as the next doctor.
“Prisoners of War (Hatuﬁm)”
Hatufm, or “Prisoners of War,” is an Israeli televi-
sion drama that follows the lives of two rescued Pris-
oners of War. Sound familiar? Tat’s because if you
happen to be a fan of “Homeland” this is actually the
show that it was based on. Tere are many diferences
between the two, such as the original featuring two
main characters versus one in the American version,
but the more interesting thing is to look at the
similarities between the shows. It really demonstrates
that deep down, we all just really enjoy smart and
exhilarating television shows. Any arguments?

ALBANY, N.Y. — Donald

Dave Campo may not admit it,
but last year’s lack of depth on
defense plagued Kansas against the
Big 12’s hellish, up-tempo ofenses.
On paper, at least, that seems
to have changed for the better. It
all begins with Kansas’ lengthy
and skilled defenders Dexter
McDonald and Kevin Short, who
are looking to hold down the two
starting cornerback spots.
Both Short and McDonald boast
impressive wingspans and athlet-
icism that will help the Jayhawks
defend against the pass-heavy
McDonald, a local product from
Rockhurst High School, returns to
the Jayhawks afer being dismissed
from the team when coach Charlie
Weis frst took over at Kansas.
Short, who transferred from
junior-college and was recently
cleared by the NCAA, looks to
bolster not only the Jayhawks sec-
ondary, but also their return game
with his top-fight speed.
While he has a little catching up
to do, Short still has a legitimate
shot at playing a fair amount when
Kansas takes the feld against
South Dakota on Sept. 7.
“He’s one of the guys, in my
mind like Dexter McDonald, he’s
a bigger athlete,” said Defensive
Coordinator Dave Campo. “We
won’t know exactly what we have
until he’s going.”
While Short may be a little
behind in adjusting to the new
system, Campo said cornerback is
one position in which relying on
athletic ability is more crucial than
Two other guys that have been
a part of the corner competition
are junior JaCorey Shepherd and
junior-college transfer Brandon
Hollomon. Te tight position
battle speaks volumes to the added
depth that Campo has been em-
bracing throughout camp.
Te big rotations defne defenses
in this league. Having two shut-
down corners can help matters
but the comfort of being able to
shufe players in without sufering
a major dropof in talent is even
more benefcial. Tat’s something
Campo feels he can now do.
“With the tempo of the game and
90 plays a game, you can’t just play
two guys,” Campo said. “Tat’s
something I did last year. I had
no confdence whatsoever in guys
that were backup positions.”
Last season, Campo came to
Kansas afer a lengthy NFL career
coaching defense for the Dallas
Cowboys. He had to deal with
facing these cutting edge, no
huddle ofenses in the Big 12 that
were unlike anything he was used
to. Now, one year later, Campo
feels much more confdent and
comfortable in preparing to face
the conference’s best.
“It’s a diferent game,” Campo
said. “I know the ofensive coaches
around this league are going to get
mad when I say this but they’re
cheating. Te game of football is
not football it’s fast-break ofense.
So, you have to be ready to cheat
right along with them.”
Te league has made it abun-
dantly clear that tempo is the
name of its game and they aren’t
turning down the engine anytime
“In critical situations we gave up
big plays,” Campo said of last year’s
team. “I feel like we were tired and
we weren’t mentally tough enough
and that comes from the way you
practice. If you’re forced to do it, it
becomes a habit. We needed better

ninth time in 13 road games this
month. Rodriguez is 10 homers
away from tying Willie Mays for
fourth on the career list, which
would secure a $6 million bonus

return to New York’s lineup. Jeter,
who started at shortstop and bat-
ted second, fnished 0 for 3 with a
walk, grounding into a double play
in the third.

Te most noticeable diference this
season on the defensive depth chart is
the depth at nearly every position. Te
defensive coaches are all fred up about
the improvements made in personnel
all over the feld.
Tere is competition at nearly every
position and some newcomers are
already expected to start.
Te Jayhawks moved to a nickel
base defense, adding a ffh defensive
back on the feld to give them a better
matchup against the passing attacks
of the Big 12. Coach Charlie Weis
said that he plans on having the scout
team ofense rotate with each play to
simulate the quick snaps some Big 12
READY FOR KICKOFF
Impressive depth for 2013 Jayhawk football
Tis appears to be a defensive line that will
get afer the quarterback on the pass rush.
Between the three starters, Marquel Combs,
Keon Stowers and Keba Agostinho, there is
size, speed and strength.
Combs is the most important piece to the
unit. Teammates say he has the skills to rush
the quarterback, but is even better at flling
the gaps against the run. Combs said he’s
looking forward to coming of the edge and
being a pass rusher in a diferent role than he
had at junior college.
Stowers will play in the middle at nose
tackle and be more of an outspoken leader in
his second year at Kansas. And Agostinho is
said to be the fastest player the Jayhawks have
on the defensive line.
Jordan Tavai and Andrew Bolton are both
likely to see regular playing time and could
compete for a starting position at some point
during the season as well. Bolton is a junior
college transfer with size and athleticism but
comes in afer sitting most of last season due
to a knee injury.
Te linebacker position features the
most experience on the feld for Kansas.
Between the three starters listed on
the depth chart to open fall camp, Ben
Goodman is the only linebacker to miss
Goodman is listed as the frst string
buck for the Jayhawks. He will be in
position to make a lot of plays as a hy-
brid of the linebacker and defensive line
positions. Michael Reynolds is listed as
the back up at buck, but could compete
for the starting job and will contribute to
the defense regardless.
At middle linebacker Ben Heeney led
the team in tackles a year ago and had
the third most in the Big 12. Heeney
is one of the few defensive players that
Kansas coaches know exactly what to
Tere is an intense battle for the
starting weakside linebacker position
between Jake Love and junior college
transfer Samson Faifli. Love brings
experience to the team afer playing 12
games last season, while Faifli brings en-
ergy that can fre up the entire defense.
Te Jayhawks enter the 2013 season with
an entirely new starting secondary. Brad-
ley McDougald, the defensive leader of
last year’s team is graduated, and Cassius
Sendish has stepped into the role.
Sendish will play nickelback for the
Jayhawks, and he has the versatility and
intelligence to step into any spot he is most
needed in the Kansas secondary.
JaCorey Shepherd received three starts
last season, when he moved from the
ofensive side of the ball to cornerback.
For now, Shepherd is the starter on the
lef side, with Dexter McDonald starting
on the right side afer transferring back to
Kansas afer a year at Butler Community
College. Tere is plenty of depth at corner
with junior college transfers Brandon
Hollomon and Kevin Short.

In 2010, it was estimated by the

that 32 million people aged twelve
and above in the US and Canada
played fantasy sports.

When these two words are sep-
arated, they do not have much in
common past the fact that they both begin
with the letter “F.” But when these two
words are written together they form one
of the world’s largest growing hobbies:
Fantasy Football. It’s a pretty simple con-
cept: people create leagues, leagues have
drafs, teams select players and players
earn you points.
Sounds easy on the surface. Yet to
someone like myself who truly loves and
breathes fantasy football, it is a fve-month
journey with as many ups and downs as
the roller coasters at Six Flags.
According to the Fantasy Sports Trade
Association, nearly 32 million people
compete in fantasy sports, with 90 percent
participating in fantasy football. It’s calcu-
lated that there is a 60 percent increase in
participation since 2008.
Fantasy football has a wide variety of
participants. Tere are the 12-year-old
boys who are just getting into football and
then there are 50-year-old men who have
been bleeding their team colors for nearly
half a century. Tat is what’s so great about
fantasy football. It reaches out to millions
of diferent kinds of people.
Tere are leagues on ESPN.com, Yahoo.
com, CBS.com and many more. Tere are
free leagues, paid leagues, public leagues
and private leagues. Tere are snake drafs,
auction drafs and fxed drafs. Tere
are Standard leagues, Two-Quarterback
leagues and Points-PerReception Leagues.
Tere is something for every kind of fan in
the fantasy football world.
Now, these are just the “X’s and O’s” of
fantasy football, there is so much more
to it. Fantasy football does a great job of
combining fun and entertainment
with enormous amounts of stress
and misfortune. One wrong move
on draf day can truly ruin your

proposals and desperate waiver wire
Te selection of one player could end
your season before it even starts. Tis is
why there is so much time and prepa-
ration put into fantasy sports. I begin
planning for the next fantasy season as the
Super Bowl clock strikes zero. Tere are
player evaluations to be read, matchups to
be analyzed and injuries to dissect. Fanta-
sy Football is an all-year job. If you truly

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Te Roy-
als' Jeremy Guthrie held down Wil
Myers and the Tampa Bay Rays
over fve innings and Kansas City
rolled to an 11-1 victory Monday
in the makeup of a snowed-out
game from early May.
Guthrie (13-10) allowed six
hits and three walks but twice
delivered timely strikeouts. He
fanned Kelly Johnson with two
aboard to end the third inning,
and then struck out David DeJesus
on a called third strike to leave the
bases loaded in the fourth.
Rays manager Joe Maddon
argued that the call and was tossed
by plate umpire Greg Gibson.
Jeremy Hellickson (10-8) allowed
fve runs in just 2 2-3 innings for
Tampa Bay. It 0was the struggling
righthander's shortest start since
June 30, 2012, when he went the
same distance in a game against
Detroit before getting pelted in the
leg by a line drive.
Salvador Perez hit a three-run
homer and fnished with four
RBIs, Billy Butler homered and
drove in three, and Mike Mous-
takas also drove in a pair as the
Royals won their second straight
following a seven-game slide in
which their biggest problem was
James Loney drove in the only
run for the Rays, who no doubt
rued having to make the quick
trip to Kansas City in the midst
of a six-game homestand. Tey
began the day a game back of the
Red Sox in the AL East and lead
the American League wild-card
It seemed like a season ago when
the teams frst tried to play. Te
temperature was 41 degrees with
a wind chill of 21 at frst pitch
on May 2, and Kaufman Stadi-
um resembled a snow globe by
the fourth inning as furries fell.
Te game called with the Royals
It was 93 degrees at frst pitch
Monday, making for a 52-degree
diference from the original date.
Sunny skies and a slight breeze
made it feel even warmer.
Te biggest subplot to the game
wasn't the weather, though, but
the return of Myers to Kansas City.
Te former minor league player of
the year was the key to a sev-
en-player trade last December that
netted the Royals starting pitchers
James Shields and Wade Davis.
Myers hadn't played at the K
since the All-Star Futures Game
in 2012, when he went 2 for 4 and
drove in the three runs. He didn't
fare nearly as well against big
league pitching, either: He went 0
for 4 with two strikeouts, slam-
ming his bat down afer a pop out
in the ffh inning.
Te Royals struck frst on Butler's
RBI single in the frst, but they
didn't really break through until
the third inning. Tree straight
hits and a walk scored two runs,
a sacrifce fy added another, and
Justin Maxwell's RBI single helped
drive Hellickson from the game.
Hellickson fell to 0-5 in his last
six starts. He's made it through fve
innings once.Te Royals tacked on
fve more runs in the sixth against
the Tampa Bay bullpen, highlight-
ed by Perez's three-run shot. Tat
was more than enough help for
the Royals' relief corps, which put
together four shutout innings to
end Guthrie's three-game losing

TO LEAD JAYHAWK
DEFENSE TO SUCCESS
JAYHAWK DEPTH CHART
THE UNIVERSITY DAILY KANSAN
By Ben Ashworth
Need to win
ead coach Charlie Weis
is in a unique situation
this year. He can win
three games, and many Kansas
fans would still consider the year a
A three-win season would have a
coach at Alabama, Florida or Ohio
State perusing the want ads looking
for high school waterboy positions.
At Kansas, however, a three-win
season would triple Weis’ win total
in the 2012 season. Grounded fans
would remain unimpressed, but
many who are thirsty for Kansas
football to achieve lasting success
would focus on the positives.
It’s certainly nice for the head
coach and athletic director to
have fans with low expectations.
Nevertheless, the Kansas football
program cannot aford for its fans
to be complacent.
I know that when you are a C
student it is easier to shoot for a C
plus than to strive for an A. High
expectations dramatically increase
the chances of disappointment
while tempered expectations are
met more ofen than not.
However, Weis and his staf need
the pressure to succeed. His perfor-
mance in recruiting talent over the
last year indicates his acknowledg-
ment of the pressure. Weis brought
in top defensive tackle Marquel
Combs to anchor his defensive line,
and two highly touted transfers
and former four-star recruits in
Jake Heaps and Justin McCay will
join his ofense at quarterback and
wide receiver, respectively. Tey
will attempt to jolt an ofense that
operated like it was on two percent
Unfortunately, the news hasn’t
been all good on the recruiting
front. Talented defensive end Chris
Martin, a former Florida recruit,
was kicked of the team for armed
robbery. Graduate transfer Nick
Harwell was slated to start opposite
McCay, but was deemed ineligible
for failure to complete his summer
credits. Despite these setbacks, it
is clear that Weis responded to the
pressure to recruit talent to Law-
rence. With regard to the team’s
record, last year was a freebie of
sorts. He now needs to respond to
the pressure to win.
Two more wins would be an
improvement, statistically speaking,
and fve years down the road it
could be seen as a stepping stone to
a competent, consistent team. But
for right now, Kansas fans must
demand more and see the team as a
more competitive squad.
Tere is especially no excuse for
the defense to perform as poorly as
it did last year. Cornerbacks gave
cushion to the wide receivers as
though the wideouts had a run-in
with a skunk. With so little pres-
sure exerted by the pass rush, the
opposing quarterbacks could have
had time to complete a New York
Times crossword before targeting a
receiver. Weis specializes in ofense,
but is still responsible for the overall
performance of the team, including
At the end of the year, the Jay-
hawks may win six or seven games.
Tey may win three. It’s certainly
possible that they only win one.
But right now, potential wins are
pure speculation. Increased pres-
sure helped lead to Weis’ recruiting
success. Tat same increased pres-
sure could cause the Jayhawks to do
more than just improve.
Tey could contend.

While last season would be
deemed an accomplishment by
many, the Kansas women’s volley-
ball team knows it can do more.
With classes starting later
than usual this year, the team
had more time to prepare for a
season that is shaping up to be an
exciting one. Afer tasting success
last year, Coach Bechard knows
this team is capable of leaving
its mark on Kansas volleyball
“We talked about how you go
from successful to signifcant,”
Bechard said. “Tat’s one of the
the road and
signifcant in the collegiate world
of volleyball you have to take it
to a new level in a lot of diferent
ways,” Bechard said.
To prepare for the tough con-
ference schedule, the Jayhawks
will open the season with difcult
out of 10 being on the road. Te
slate of games includes teams
from the Pac 12, Big 10 and
SEC. It also features a matchup
against No. 25 Creighton from
the Missouri Valley Conference.
Bechard said he hopes these early
season matches against unfa-
miliar opponents will help the
Jayhawks prepare for a style of
play they might encounter in the
Moving into the Big 12 portion
of the schedule, the Jayhawks
will look to make noise in a
conference that features the No.
1 (Texas) and No. 15 (Iowa State)
teams in the country. Texas won
the NCAA National Champion-
ship last year, while Iowa State
advanced to the Sweet 16. Kansas
will play each team at home and
on the road.
Te team was a few close
matches away from coming out
on top of the Big 12 last season.
Te Jayhawks fnished 12-4 in
conference, including a fve-set
home loss to Texas and four-set
losses to Iowa State and Baylor on
the road. Bechard said winning
matches like those would be
crucial in order to compete in the
“Volleyball can come down to
one or two close plays, and ex-
perience allows you to win these
close games and jump over that
line,” Bechard said.
Texas and Iowa State both ben-
eft from a “seri-
ous home court
Texas has won
Big 12 matches
streak that dates
back to 2009.
Iowa State went
14-1 at home
in 2012, which
included a fve-
set win over Texas.
Senior libero Brianne Riley said
each team has a swagger about
them when they walk in a gym.
“It can be intimidating at frst,
but with the experience and
veterans we have I think we walk
around with that same swagger,
too,” Riley said.
Kansas enjoys a home court
advantage of its own, as the
Jayhawks went 17-1 in the
regular season at Horejsi Family
Athletics Center last year. To gain
experience in other settings, the
team practiced at a high school
in the preseason. McNorton said
it was good to get a feel for other
courts because the team feels so
comfortable at Horejsi.
When it starts competition
on Aug. 30, the Kansas squad
will look to claim its frst Big 12
championship since the confer-
ence began competition in 1996-
97, and advance past the second
round of the NCAA Tournament

FIGHT FOR THE TITLE
Kansas volleyball hopes to grab first Big 12 championship
Charlie Weis spoke to the media
for about ten minutes on Monday
for the weekly Big 12 telecon-
ference, giving some interesting
information in his frst session of
Te frst nugget of information
he provided is one that most would
probably have already assumed,
but may be reassuring nonetheless.
Te Kansas depth chart is about
90 percent resolved, with very few
position battles lef in the frst and
second string. Tat depth chart
will be released next week.
Te second point was the team’s
schedule for the frst bye week,
which comes unusually during
the opening weekend of college
football. Really, it’s not much of a
bye week at all for the team, at least
that's the idea.
Te team will go through this
week the same as they would as if
there were a game, and on Satur-
day they will practice at 7 a.m. and
spend the rest of the day watching
college football, while coaches
attempt to get a head start on
watching flm of opposing teams
they face early in the season.
In most years, Weis said he would
rather play the frst week, but this
year with so many junior college
transfers, having the frst week of
will serve as even more time for
Te intended purpose of simu-
lating a game week is to practice
time management. “Tat way,
everyone can say ‘here’s how it
goes’,” Weis said, “so now when
you get to the practice feld and get
to game day, they’ve already gone
through it once, which I think
should defnitely help us next week
when we’re actually getting ready
Weis said that if there was a game
on Saturday, junior quarterback
Jake Heaps, who redshirted last
season due to transfer rules would
be ready to play. But for the frst
week of camp, Heaps was over-
anxious and throwing the ball too
“He was wired for sound to start
with, he’s a wired up dude,” Weis
said. “One of his greatest strengths
is accuracy, and he was throwing
the ball really hard and didn’t have
a lot of touch. Afer he got through
the frst week he settled down to
just Jake being Jake.”
At a mid-camp press conference
Weis announced that he would
have his defense practice against
two separate ofenses, which would
be continually rotating to simulate
the way Big 12 ofenses snap the
ball every 10 to 12 seconds.
Te plan is beginning to work
well for its purpose, but didn’t get
of to the smoothest of starts.
“It was like a fre drill when we
frst started,” Weis said through
laughter. “It was almost comical to
watch the frst day when we were
doing it, but afer about a couple
days I think the ofense had it
down. I think we’re gonna have to
carry that through the season, be-
cause if we don’t practice it, you’re
just not gonna be ready.”
