YOUR SUMMER GUIDE TO TUCSON MUSIC, MOVIES AND ART
Tucson’s most famously odd landmarks Wildcats, but it’s also home to an axe-less lumberjack. On the corner of Stone Avenue and Glenn Street stands 18-foot-tall Paul Bunyon. He’s been around for so long that people can’t remember when he first settled here. He sticks out like any 18-foot man would, having no relevance to the shops around him. He still stands there smiling nevertheless. Bunyon is just another novelty that Tucsonans have grown to love. Although campus has been the stomping ground for numerous movies, including “Revenge of the Nerds”and“A Kiss Before Dying,”other parts of Tucson have also caught directors’ eyes. The Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, better

known as the airplane graveyard, which was featured in some Tom Petty music videos as well as“Transformers,”is an interesting piece of Tucson history. The acres upon acres of decrepit planes, jets and parts are an awesome sight to see. Even if you don’t have an interest in these air vehicles, just to be in the same place as some rock or movie stars is kind of surreal. But even that pales in comparison to the massive yard.
The Rattlesnake Bridge sits over Broadway Boulevard on the way to downtown. Not only is the 280-foot-long structure rarely seen being used, but the snake’s eyes light up at night and the rattler contains a sensor that goes off when you cross it. It seems a little un-strategically placed, but the very least, the bridge is interesting and something you have to check out in Tucson. What was once one of the novelties at Magic Carpet Golf on Speedway Boulevard, now resides at The Hut on Fourth Avenue. The Tiki Head, roughly 55,000 pounds, has been around for the past 40 years. When the head was moved in 2008, crowds gathered and the Tiki Head move was continually the topic of conversation. This chunk of Tucson’s whimsical history can be seen all along Fourth Avenue. Speeding down Speedway Boulevard, you might catch a glimpse of a buffalo on a roof. Copper Country Antiques houses this buffalo, and if you check back from time to time, you may notice the buffalo changes colors and themes. The buffalo may make more sense when you realize that within the antique store is the Buffalo Bistro. Antiques, food and colorful buffalos — who could want more quirk than that? Gordon Bates/Arizona Summer Wildcat Tucson may be home of the The larger-than-life Tiki head at The Hut on Fourth Avenue, having once resided at Tucson’s Magic Carpet Golf, has been being viewed by occupants of Tucson for the past 40 years.
Campus eats: from lattes to hot dogs By Steven Kwan ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT You’re hungry and new to campus. You may or may not have a car or bike, and maybe you don’t quite trust the people on the city bus yet. It’s possible to have your “Choose Your Own (Dining) Adventure” at the UA without using an ounce of gasoline. Where do you go and what do you get? Here are foods, and a few drinks, that you have to eat:

College means pizza and there are a few worthwhile places to stop by for their pizza pies. Just east of North Park Avenue and East Sixth Street, Zachary’s serves deep-dish pizza, and if you’re there with friends, by all means, get a whole pie ($14-$20). With its thick crust and tasty toppings, there is enough to feed four to six hungry stomachs. But the better deal is the lunch special ($7), which includes a slice of whatever pizza is available, a dinner plate of salad and a soda, and you can order it at any time of the day.

its thin-crust pizzas, but it is not afraid to use just about every other ingredient. Potato, bacon and cheddar top one reinterpretation of the baked potato while all fixings for an order of buffalo wings — sauce, chicken, bleu cheese, ranch — adorn another pizza. Of course, there are the old standbys, cheese and pepperoni, but with so many options and combinations available, it wouldn’t hurt to step outside your comfort zone. If you can’t decide what you want or if you just want to dip your tongue, so to speak, you can combine different slices and finish it off with a drink ($6-$8).
1702 E. Speedway Blvd. (520) 325-1702 Monday - Friday, 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. Saturday, Noon - 11 p.m. Closed Sundays
For those who want a large selection of beers with their equally large pizza, 1702 is the place to go. The thin pizza slices ($5 per cheese slice, 75¢ per topping; $8 per gourmet slice) cover a dinner plate, and are usually more than enough for the average person. GOOD EATS, page B12
It’s true that the Student Union Memorial Center is shaped like a boat if you use your imagination a little. But it’s safe to assume that you don’t remember much of your campus tour, and that adorable little tidbit won’t do you any good when you start classes. Let the Arizona Summer Wildcat Campus Guide walk you through your first semester instead. If you’re living in the dorms, work out your differences early. Figure out sleep routines, how much your roommate talks on the phone and each other’s food preferences so that you know who to blame for a smelly refrigerator. When you know all that nonsense right away, it’s less likely that you will fly into a rage in the middle of the semester over whose turn it is to take out the trash. If you’re commuting, be alert when you’re in the parking garages. You never know when some jerk is going to disregard the arrows and come screaming around the corner in a direction he’s not supposed to go. Getting hit by a car is not the ideal way to begin college. It’s going to be hot. Really hot. Obviously, bring a bottle of water with TOUR GUIDES, page B3
5 Fourth Avenue essentials

Take a walk down Abbey Road (unfortunately, not the real one) and head over to this hippie-themed shop that’s sure to give you a rock ‘n’ roll experience, both inside and out. Outside, you can marvel at paintings and murals of legendary rock gods. Inside, you can expect to be greeted with merchandise that’s desirable for rock fans and hippies of all ages. It has a great selection of clothing and items featuring artists like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and the Grateful Dead. And, if you’re into incense and tobacco pipes, expect to partake in a mental debate after seeing its wide selection.

Even though the title is selfexplanatory, this is no ordinary thrift store. This shop specializes in vintage clothing, costumes and accessories that date back from the 1950s through the ‘80s. Thus, it’s truly the perfect place to stop and shop if you have a creative fashion style or if you want to change your look. It’s also a fun store to just browse through and pass time.
Antigone Books 411 N. Fourth Ave. (520) 792-3715
It’s an independent bookstore with a feminist edge. However, men and children love it, too. If you’re a book lover, you’re going to want to stop by this unique outlet and take a gander at its immense selection

Oh, college. There’s no better place to meet young, attractive and smart strangers who couldn’t want anything more than to meet you too. It helps that the UA is routinely recognized for an inordinate and disproportionate number of good-looking people all in the same place. Of course, all this information will do you no good if you don’t know where to find said good-looking people. Don’t worry, though. It turns out your classes are the quickest way to get yourself in the thick of it all.

UA home to slew of quirky campus clubs By Kristina Bui ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT
People are going to tell you that you need to “get to know people” and “get involved” on campus. They will tell you that there is a club for everyone — and it turns out there really is, even for the quirkiest among us.
For: People who like to pretend they’re ninjas Look for these guys on YouTube and Facebook. Basically, UA Tricks does flips. But the flips are ones where you throw yourself at a wall and not get injured. Club members meet at Tumbleweeds Gym regularly to practice tumbling, free-running and, of course, flipping.
Arizona Swing Cats
For: People who are nostalgic for an era that ended before they were born Beginners and advanced dancers alike are welcome for lessons in the Lindy Hop, Balboa and Charleston. The club also gets together on weekends for open dancing, available to all levels. The Swing Cats are resting their feet over the summer, but will return Aug. 24 for another semester of swing dancing.
Capoeira Club of the UA
For: People who imagine their lives are martial arts movies, soundtrack included
TOUR GUIDES continued from page B1
Capoeira combines music, dance and martial arts to create an Afro-Brazilian art form. The Capoeira Club works with Capoeira Mandinga Tucson to encourage physical improvement and cultural development in students.
For: People whose favorite movie is “The Goonies” There is no typo. The CatCachers are devoted to geocaching, which can only be described as high-tech treasure hunting. Instead of a map, adventurers are given coordinates that can be plugged into a GPS device. Using the coordinates, the goal is to find hidden containers (caches) and share the experience online with other geocachers. You can also hide a cache for others to find.
For: People who like to pretend they’re ninjas with swords Ryuseiken Batto-Do practices Japanese sword-fighting by learning different fighting forms, sparring with padded swords and testcutting targets with swords. Put that on your resume.

They will judge you more if you spend 10 minutes staring at a map and looking up every few seconds in confusion. However, do beware of asking the visiting campus preachers. Regardless of the state of your soul, you do not want to be told just how much you look like you’re whoring around when all you’re trying to do is get to the Student Union Memorial Center. Most importantly, always keep your chin up and walk like you know where you’re going, even when you don’t.

Indie theaters that don't break the bank
Tucson’s small movie outlets provide respite from Harkins wasteland with offbeat films By Melissa Guz ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT You want to watch a movie, but you don’t know where to go. Well, instead of driving 15-20 minutes away from campus to watch an overpriced and potentially unoriginal mainstream movie at major theaters, make your way to one of Tucson’s independent theaters and catch the flicks that started it all.
The Loft Cinema 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. (520) 322-5638 All ages. Alcohol sales to 21+
If you’re into classic flicks, documentaries, obscure horror or independent and foreign films, then The Loft is for you.

Top 3 sites to find cheap textbooks By Melissa Guz ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT Now that you’re in college, you’re going to witness how fast higher education cleans out your wallet, forcing you to live on a budget. Why go beyond your limit when you could own your textbooks for a whole lot cheaper? Below is a list and guide to the top three websites that are guaranteed to give you the cheapest textbook options.
3. Amazon.com Emily Moore/Arizona Summer Wildcat
Chegg a strong textbook alternative By Ashley James ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT To rent or to buy? It’s a question students are faced with at the start of every semester. With the high price of textbooks, many are turning to renting as a cheaper way of getting their books. There is one textbook rental business that pays students more money for their books, offers cheaper rental rates, free return shipping and is something everyone should check out: Chegg. The company even plants a tree for every
order and, according to its website, students who rent all their textbooks with Chegg save an average of more than $500 per year. The process is very simple. Students can search for the books they need with either the title or ISBN number online. If the book is available, they have the option to rent it for the semester or the year. Once they find their books, they can choose where in the world they would like their tree planted to promote saving paper and renting textbooks. The quality of the books is guaranteed;
if a student is unhappy with a book they’ve received, they can have a new one shipped to them for free. To return the books at the end of their rental period, all that is needed is the original box that the book was sent in, a return label that can be printed from Chegg.com and a drop-off at the nearest UPS store. The ease and convenience of the service allows students to save money and have books delivered directly to their door. That convenience, as well as avoiding the long lines in campus bookstores, makes this an option to consider.
Many professors recommend it, many students use it, so why don’t you? Just simply type in the ISBN number, click the correct edition, then decide whether you want your book new or used. If anything, always browse through the “used” tab because there may be textbooks that are “like new” or “very good” condition for relatively cheap, though not always the cheapest available.
Your textbook may be available on this popular site. If it is, you’ll notice that the listed price may be dirt cheap, but that’s before the bidding war takes place. Unfortunately, the bids may cause you to spend more than what’s available. So, if you don’t want to take the risk, browse through the listings with the “buy it now” CHEAP BOOKS, page B10

Don't get run over in the bike lane and other tips By Ashley James ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT
you’re still studying for that test at 8 a.m. However, excess caffeine can lead to symptoms such as stress, anxiety and insomnia. It is best to avoid caffeine after 4 p.m. or consume it in smaller amounts, like green tea, instead of a double shot of espresso. There are various techniques to increase alertness such as breathing, exercise and high energy music.
Sunburn — We all love the bright sunshine of Arizona, but let’s face it, the sun is strong and the heat is blistering. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, Arizona is ranked second in the world, just behind Australia, for skin cancer incidence rates. Although many love having a sensationally golden glow, it’s absolutely imperative to wear sunscreen to protect yourself from the potentially harmful UVA and UVB rays. About 2 teaspoons is the suggested amount of sunscreen to cover your entire body and face. Bicycle and skateboarding incidents — It’s quick and convenient to zip around this large campus on your bike or skateboard. However, there have been countless accidents with people getting run over or thrown from the skateboards in an effort to avoid hitting pedestrians and cars. Certain areas of campus are labeled as pedestrian or cyclist-only, but many fail to heed such signage. Remember when your parents used to tell you to“look both ways before crossing the street”? Well, these words may come in handy and protect you from a collision. Eye strain — In this day and age, hours upon hours are spent staring at computer screens checking your Facebook page … uh, I mean studying. Oftentimes, this is done in poor lighting, which causes strain to our eyes. If possible, supply ample lighting with lamps or open blinds so that you can see without the strain on your peepers. It is also best

to keep your computer screen 20 to 26 inches away from your eyes. Long-term back and foot damage — The UA campus is more than 380 acres, and not all of us have the luxury of having our classes within close proximity of each other. Comfortable shoes are essential to saving your soles and your spine when walking long distances. Make sure your shoes provide proper support for your feet. No one wants aching feet and blistered toes when sitting through hours of lectures.
Trips and falls — How many times have you been looking at your phone while walking, when all of the sudden you’ve tripped and fallen or run into a pole? Not often? Then you are one of the lucky ones. This one is very simple, yet all too common. Take caution when walking. This campus is bustling and all it takes is one brief moment when you are looking at your phone for you to not see the skateboard coming your way or the pothole in front of your next step. Bee stings — It is always nice to
sit outside and enjoy some free time between classes with your coffee or your lunch. However, the bees also enjoy hovering around your meals. To avoid a potentially unpleasant sting, keep sugared beverages and fruit covered while outside as well as avoiding colognes and perfumes. Also avoid swatting at the buzzing pest to prevent injury. Caffeine overdose — It is always great to feel alert and attentive during class, after class, and at 4 in the morning when
Dehydration — It can be very easy to forget to hydrate throughout the day, but by carrying a water bottle with you at all times, it is much easier to remember to drink it. Ideally, you should consume 6 to 8 bottles of water per day, although that differs with each person. For those of you who dislike plain water, there are ways to flavor your water, such as Crystal Light packets, available at most grocery and convenience stores. Remember to consume water throughout the entire day and to consume extra if you are participating in vigorous physical activity. Depressed immune system and illness — Due to the large amounts of stress and lowered amounts of sleep that take place during the school year, it is easy for the immune system to suffer. In order to keep things in good shape, make an effort to get adequate amounts of sleep. Additionally, students should strive to maintain a nutritious diet and get adequate exercise to keep their bodies in balance. Avoid procrastination to lessen the amount of stress of school projects that can later have an impact on your immune system.

“We do more than exchange product for money.”
Enhance your education with technology Let the Technology Center simplify your tech life.
By Travis De La Roca BOOKSTORE EDITORIAL DEPARTMENT
Although not a necessity for college survival, it is undeniably convenient to have your own computer in college. Having personal access to the internet, email and class resources can make student life much easier. Many students are looking to make a computer purchase when they begin college, or perhaps replace an existing computer a few years into school. Jamie Garner, incoming freshman in business, told me this: “One of the ﬁrst things I’m looking to get is a laptop. I want to have a computer that is easy to carry around with me.” Though many stores offer the same technology to meet the needs of students, the University of Arizona BookStores offers signiﬁcant discounts to students, faculty and staff on many technology products.
Picking a speciﬁc computer can be a difﬁcult decision. Many factors have to be considered; what a student is studying, how much memory they are looking for,
what programs they prefer to use and how they will be using the computer overall. Knowledgeable, non-commissioned staff at UA BookStores can help students like Jamie make informed decisions about which computer and software is right for them.
“I brought my computer to the bookstore and got the problem fixed.” Savings for UA students
The newly remodeled lower level of UA BookStores is the home of the Technology Center, which has been expanded and improved to become the University of Arizona’s main resource center for hardware, software, service capabilities, on-demand printing and much more. The Technology Center is an authorized academic reseller of products from Apple, Dell, Microsoft, Adobe, Iomega and others. They also carry many of the most popular academically priced PC and Mac Software programs including Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, Corel,
Symantec and others, meaning students get signiﬁcant savings they won’t ﬁnd eleswhere.
There are few things more frustrating than having computer problems. Last year, my computer had issues right before ﬁnals and I had no idea how to ﬁx it. Fortunately, UA BookStores has an award-winning Computer Service Center that made my life a little easier.

Supporting the campus & community UA BookStores gives back to the University.
By Shannon Marhsall BOOKSTORE EDITORIAL DEPARTMENT When Nick Walker was asked what a bookstore does, he responded like most people probably would. “Uh...they sell books.” This answer would be a perfect response to describe a fair majority of bookstores, however it is not nearly expansive enough to describe the University of Arizona BookStores. UA BookStores does much more than sell books. In fact, UA BookStores is involved in and supports many different campus and community outreach programs, all while functioning as a completely self-ﬁnanced organization without state tax, student tuition fees or other campus subsidies.
The ﬁrst annual Tucson Festival of Books was held in March of 2009 on the UA campus and was expanded in 2010. UA BookStores employees contributed over 7,000 hours of service to making the event a success. All proceeds are donated to organizations in the Tucson area that work to promote youth literacy. The W.A.L.K. (Wildcats Advocating Literacy & Knowledge) program has been working to encourage kids to read for several years. Once a month the BookStore in the Union hosts an hour of storytelling and activities for children and their families, encouraging a love of reading in children. UA BookStores also supports events that directly beneﬁt the campus community and
university students including contributing to Commencement activities and ASUA, the student government of the University of Arizona. UA BookStores also provides ﬁnancial support for the ﬁne arts including UApresents, the UA Repertory Theatre and the School of Visual Communication.
UA BookStores employs approximately 400 students at the beginning of each semester as part of an initiative to offset rising costs of tuition and textbooks. They also employ permanent student workers who are able to gain practical experience in their professional ﬁelds. These students play a vital role in the successful operation of the organization. More information about employment at the bookstore is available at uabookstores.arizona.edu/employment.
As part of the University’s Wildcat Mac Scholarship award for, UA BookStores will help to facilitate the distribution of close to 1,000 MacBooks, 300 iPads and over 350 iPod touch devices this summer, foregoing commissions related to the purchase, and will provide technical help and customer service to all awardees free of charge.
Keep it on Campus
As the ofﬁcial campus bookstore, UA BookStores beneﬁts the campus community in ways that competitors simply cannot match. By keeping your money on campus and shopping at UA BookStores you can contribute to the continued success of vital programs, organizations and scholarships that are integral to the overall success of the University of Arizona.

boardroom. It won’t go unnoticed when they match wits with you, as well. Major of choice: Marketing. These guys are also creative and good with words. Find one that works out regularly, and you’re all set.
2. College of Letters, Arts and Sciences Want the gifted male mind who solves problems like they’re Sudoku puzzles? How does a passionate interest in other cultures and a desire to carry on ancient traditions sound? Well, have I got the college for you! This super-college is filled with people who can read Greek
epics in the original language, speak Italian to you at a restaurant or spontaneously create poetry to whisper in your ear as you fall asleep. Most of the men in the college also have an astute love for feminine charms, so if this is your type, you’ll find plenty to choose from here. Major of choice: A romance language. These majors are some of the most diverse at the UA (since nearly everyone has to take a foreign language to graduate), so there’s someone to fit every need or want.
Searching for that perfect woman? 1. Department of Communication
This fairly large department is a man’s dream come true. The number of females crashing through a communications degree is hugely disproportionate to many other colleges; you’ll likely have one of these ladies in every one of your classes. There’s a girl to fit every type here and the good news is, if you make the fortunate decision to major or minor in communications, they’ll be with
you every day, in every class. You could do much worse.
2. College of Social and Behavioral Sciences
This college is a gold mine for those looking to score an attractive and intelligent woman with diverse interests. Want a girl who loves money as much as you do, eligible Eller guy? Look into economics. How about someone interested in great leaders from the past and how to emulate them? Whoa! You just ran into someone majoring in history. What about a girl who
puts social change first on the menu? Try government and public policy (formerly political science) or journalism. Diversity is the key word here; there are 20 different areas of study (including the aforementioned communications, as well as some more broad topics like linguistics or Latin American studies). If you can’t find a suitable woman in SBS, you may just be out of luck. Major of choice: Journalism. These ladies possess all the mentioned qualities and most are very attractive to boot.
For selling textbooks, think online vendors

option. Usually, this action will grant you the cheapest price.
It’s a shame that many college students aren’t aware of Half.com, a company owned by Ebay. Simply put, it’s similar to Amazon, but more organized and cheaper. You can’t buy from the website itself; rather, it’s an aggregator for other online vendors’ deals. But that ceases to matter when you have the ability to spend less on a new textbook compared to the price of a used textbook at the UofA Bookstore. Don’t forget to check out these websites toward the end of the semester as well. Like buying, you will score a sweeter deal selling your textbooks through these organizations compared to the UofA Bookstore. Keep in mind, however, that there’s no guarantee that it’ll sell. With that said, here are a couple tips and tricks that will guarantee a successful textbook-ordering experience. E-mail the seller before you order. Unlike Ebay, Amazon and Half.com do not detail the listing’s age. E-mailing beforehand can help you determine whether or not the seller is still active, as well as answer any questions regarding the book’s information (i.e. edition). Check the ratings and reviews before your purchase. This helps you avoid scams, as well as obtain a general idea regarding your potential shopping experience. If you’re having difficulties, don’t hesitate to contact the website. Just like any business, these sites’ success depends on your shopping experience. So, if you’re having a terrible one because, say, a seller is being uncooperative and hasn’t shipped your book, contact them. They’ll help you get your money back immediately. And if you just can’t find it online, buy it at the UofA Bookstore. Enough said.

Grimaldi’s also offers thin pizzas (starting at $20) using water that is the same as its Brooklyn pizzeria, then baking them in coal-fired brick ovens to create a crisp, savory wedge that is so good, the sauce and toppings almost don’t matter.
Espresso, coffee, tea Canyon Café
Second floor, Student Union Memorial Center
Whoever first discovered that chocolate and oranges complement each other deserves a public statue or a fountain made of this divine combination. You can find your own piece of divinity with the chocolate-filled croissant with orange herbal tea (about $3) at the UA’s Canyon Café. It’s located at the Student Union Memorial Center, making it the perfect rest stop for both between and after classes. Why is tea (herbal, no less!) recommended as the drink of choice instead of coffee or espresso? One bite through the wafer-thin layers of rich, buttery dough of the café’s enormous regular croissant is enough to force anyone to grab a cup of coffee. Add a layer of chocolate chips inside the croissant and you won’t need that coffee and sugar to get you through the day.
Espresso Art Café
944 E. University Boulevard Monday - Friday, 6:30 a.m - Midnight Saturday and Sunday, 7 a.m - Midnight
Fully automatic espresso machines that dispense espresso with only the push of a button require little to no training to use, and are great for serving many customers very quickly, which is why you’ll find them at most Starbucks and Seattle’s Best locations. They also create utterly boring drinks. You can’t get, say, a variation of Café Cubano if you need a small but strong dose of caffeine. Espresso Art Café, a minute’s walk west of campus on University Boulevard, can pull off such shots for about $2. The café’s take on this drink is to add demarara or turbinado sugar into the portafilter with the espresso grounds, rather than into the demitasse.
943 E. University Blvd. Suite 191 (520) 207-5504 Monday - Thursday, 7 a.m. - 10 p.m. Friday, 7 a.m. - 11 p.m. Saturday, 8 a.m. - 11 p.m. Sunday, 9 a.m. - 7 p.m
If you’re looking for a superb cup of the other black gold, just head north of Park Avenue and University Boulevard to Caffé Luce. Its 16 coffee blends are roasted in the café with a hard-to-miss roaster that looks like a steam train engine, which is amazing to see in action. Many Tucson restaurants carry beans from Caffé Luce for good reason.
2516 E. Sixth St. (520) 881-4072 Monday - Saturday, 10:30 a.m. - 8 p.m. Sunday, 11:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.

a walk from campus. But it is well worth it. This Chinese teahouse is the only American tea company to be given a Chinese trading license, which allows it to control its tea supplies starting at the suppliers. This means you get to taste a variety of specialty teas from different regions of China and Taiwan. Add helpful staff, the Chinese tea ceremony, majiang (or mahjong) nights, classes on tea from a certified tea master and free weekly tastings, and you’ll begin to understand why tea is a worthy alternative to espresso and coffee.
Off the beaten path: Sonoran hot dogs, kosher fare, pho Mr. Antojo
501 N. Park Ave Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - 11 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. 6 a.m.
The Sonoran hot dog can be quite deceptive if you aren’t paying attention. There’s a good reason the dog is nestled within an oversized bun. It’s sharing a room with beans, grilled onions, tomatoes, salsa verde, cheese and sometimes mayonnaise, mustard and guacamole. And then there’s the bacon coiled around the dog itself, which just makes sense. Formerly a cart in the parking lot of Jett’s Wildcat and now housed within the gas station, Mr. Antojo is a great pit stop for this local specialty ($3).
Oy Vey Café
Hillel Foundation building Only open during the school year Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Located just north of the main UofA Bookstore at the Hillel Foundation building on the UA campus, Oy Vey Café offers a kosher menu that is primarily vegetarian with daily specials ($5.75) and comforting soups. Most sandwiches and salads start at $5.50. The chocolate and banana panini ($4.50) is worth a try.
943 E. University Blvd. (520) 396-3624 Monday - Saturday, 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. Sunday, Noon - 7 p.m.
1072 N. Campbell Ave. (520) 320-9511 Monday - Saturday, 10:30 a.m. - 9:30 p.m. Sunday, 11:30 a.m. - 9:30 p.m.
Pho is such a simple Vietnamese dish — sliced meat atop rice noodles in broth — and something that used to be considered just street food. But its essence and how, like a jazz musician with a standard song, anyone can easily play off of it with the garnishes — Thai basil, bean sprouts, lime juice, cilantro, and fish sauce — elevate this bowl to something worthy of being considered a culinary treasure and arguably one of America’s best imports. Two places worth seeking out within walking distance serve this dish: Saigon Pho and Miss Saigon. (Check the archives at Dailywildcat.com for my review.) Both places have great pho and excellent service, but other factors should be considered as to which place to visit. With Miss Saigon a little further from campus at the southeast corner of East Speedway Boulevard and South Campbell Avenue and Saigon Pho located right behind Caffé Luce, it really comes down to how much time you have for your meal.

Arizona athletics: A to Z By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT
Actually named Sentinel Peak, “A” Mountain became a symbol of UA pride in 1915 when the freshman class built the “A” on the side of the peak. Freshmen began the yearly tradition of whitewashing the monument in 1916. Both Arizona and ASU have “A” Mountains in their respective cities, and the challenge of painting the other school’s “A” before big games has become a yearly ritual.
Bear down lyrics:
“Bear down, Arizona, Bear down, red and blue. Bear down, Arizona. Hit ‘em hard, let ‘em know who’s who. Bear down, Arizona. Bear down red and blue. Fight! Fight! Wildcats fight! Arizona, Bear Down!”
The junior wide receiver for the Arizona football team finished the 2009 season with a teamleading nine touchdowns and was second in receptions with 45 catches and 582 total yards. Expect Criner to be one of the main downfield targets for quarterback Nick Foles.
Duel in the Desert:
The rivalry between Arizona and ASU began in 1899, and the intensity between Arizona and the “other” state university hasn’t let up since. This rivalry is renewed every year during the numerous matchups between the Wildcats and the Sun Devils.
The transfer from Michigan State University took the starting quarterback job from Matt Scott during the 2009 season and never looked back. Foles nabbed the starting job in the fourth week of the season and finished the year with 2,486 passing yards, 19 touchdowns and one of the best nicknames of any Arizona athlete — Sunshine, a la “Remember the Titans.”
After the departure of former athletic director Jim Livengood to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Greg Byrne stepped into the position in May. Byrne held the same position at Mississippi State University and also had experience at Kentucky and Oregon. He graduated from ASU, but Byrne swears he’s finally figured out the right Arizona school to be loyal to.
Arizona has opportunity with wide-open conference By Tim Kosch ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT Welcome to a level of college football fandom you’ve never experienced before. The Wildcats might not be your favorite team right now and they still might not be in four years, but sitting in the Zona Zoo will make even a non-sports fan crazy about college football. So whether you’re a longtime follower of the game and need a refresher or you couldn’t tell the difference between down-and-distance and turnover-on-downs, here’s a quick guide to what the Pacific 10 Conference has to offer in 2010.
ARIZONA The Wildcats finished second in the Pac-10 and finished with an 8-5 overall record last season. An embarrassing 33-0 loss to Nebraska in the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl ended the season on a sour note, but wins against Oregon State, Stanford and USC
Heyer, Kurt: The title of ace on the Arizona baseball team belongs to A TO Z, page B18
put the Wildcats back on the map. The 2010 team will be firing on all cylinders offensively, thanks to the return of eight starters, including quarterback Nick Foles and running back Nic Grigsby.
ARIZONA STATE The Sun Devils were on the opposite side of the standings from their instate rival, finishing second-tolast in the Pac-10 with a 4-8 record. ASU boasted a stellar defense all season long but struggled to find any rhythm offensively, cycling through three different quarterbacks. The Sun Devils are expected to struggle again in 2010, but a Vontaze Burfict-led defense could help ASU stay competitive.
CALIFORNIA The Golden Bears had one of the most perplexing seasons of any team in the country last
year — they were ranked in the top-10 of nearly every major preseason poll, yet were unranked before the midseason mark. Inconsistent play and an injury to AllAmerican running back Jahvid Best crippled Cal in 2009. The silver lining, though, was that Shane Vereen emerged as the next great Golden Bear running back.
OREGON Thanks to an offense that put up a staggering 469 points in 2009, the Pac-10 champion Oregon Ducks were a force to be reckoned with. Quarterback Jeremiah Masoli emerged as one of the most dynamic players in the country last year, FOOTBALL, page B16
Zona Zoo 101
Arizona football is slated for at least five games with national ESPN/ABC coverage, including two Friday night games and even a Thursday game against ASU. The season opener at Toledo, Ohio, as well as three of the last four games of Arizona’s season, will be broadcasted nationally.
Welcome to Pac-10 football
By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT Welcome to Zona Zoo 101, where you’ll find out exactly what the Zona Zoo is, how to get in and, most importantly, how to get the most out of the experience. Sit down and take notes, this one’s going to fun. (And there’s no outside reading required!) First, you’re probably wondering what Zona Zoo is. Simply put, it’s the University of Arizona’s student section. There are more than 12,000 members, making it the largest student section in the Pacific 10 Conference, knocking off schools like USC, Washington and even ASU. More importantly to you, it’s the only student-ticketing program. It offers you a way to gain access to the games you’ll want to see this season.
Getting in There are two ways to get tickets to athletic events on campus. You have the option to choose between the“Red”Zona Zoo pass and the “Blue” Zona Zoo pass. The pass makes you eligible to get into sporting events. They key word here, though, is eligible. Just because you have a Zona Zoo pass — which by the way, is your CatCard, so there’s another incentive not to lose the most valuable piece of plastic you’ll get in college — doesn’t mean you’re able to just walk in. Zona Zoo operates on a first come, first served basis. For football, the student
section is limited to 10,000 fans. For basketball, the number is limited to approximately 2,290. All Zona Zoo passes can be purchased online at arizonawildcats. com under the Zona Zoo tab, by calling 520-621-CATS or by visiting the ticket office at McKale Center. You’ll need your CatCard number as well as your student ID number. They go on sale around the time freshmen orientation begins.
‘Red’ Zona Zoo So why are there two options for Zona Zoo? The“Red”Zona Zoo pass makes you eligible to attend men’s basketball games, which accounts for the difference in price. Here’s a breakdown of the benefits from the“Red”pass: • Eligibility to get into any regular season, home athletic event • A free Zona Zoo T-shirt • An online newsletter from Zona Zoo with information about upcoming events • Invitations to special Zona Zoo events • Priority for men’s basketball UA student Holiday Packs and post-season tournament tickets
‘Blue’ Zona Zoo The only thing the Blue Zona Zoo pass doesn’t have is eligibility to get into men’s basketball games. Otherwise,“Blue”Zona Zoo members have the same benefits at “Red”Zona Zoo members.
Non-Zona Zoo sports In case you’d like to go to sporting
events that don’t require you to have a pass, take this little footnote: Admission to swimming and diving, track and field, cross country, tennis and golf matches are all free and open to anyone.
Do’s and don’ts of Zona Zoo Do: Go to the games early. Besides the incentive of getting a good seat, you’ll see pregame ritual warm-ups, like the football team performing the Haka, the traditional dance of New Zealand’s Maori people. Don’t: Rush the field early. Just don’t do it. The end of sporting events may be the most exciting time (especially if it’s a close game) but stay in your seat until the fat lady sings. If you don’t, you’ll not only embarrass yourself, but the school as a whole (see last year’s Arizona vs. Oregon game nationally televised on ESPN). Do: Get excited to be there in person. This season, the number of quality matchups at Arizona has given you — the fan — the best opportunity to actually see the game in recent memory. So take advantage of it. Don’t: Forget to watch the away games. The Arizona football team has been selected for five nationally televised games on ESPN. In addition, men’s basketball has the benefit of regional coverage on Fox Sports Arizona. And there’s potential for other networks to pick up more Wildcat games.
Five things to expect from this year's Cats By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT
No. 1: … an exciting home football season Iowa. California. Oregon State. Washington. USC. ASU. Those are quality football programs you get to look forward to seeing in Tucson this season. The Rose Bowl is decisively out of USC’s hands for the first time in a decade, so if you don’t get excited about Arizona welcoming these six schools to Arizona Stadium, you might not be a college football fan.
July 28 - August 3, 2010
No. 2: … the men’s basketball program to return to its former glory Sean Miller’s first season as head coach of the Arizona men’s basketball team was marked by buzzer beaters and a heartbreaking conclusion to Arizona’s NCAA Tournament appearance streak at season’s end. What was promising, though, were the five freshmen who emerged as one of the best classes in the Pacific 10 Conference. Now, with a year of experience under their belts, expect their performance to improve — along with the number of tallies in the win column for the Wildcats on the hardwood.

High hopes for maturing baseball team
By Vincent Balistreri ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT
After 25 years under legendary head coach Lute Olson, the Arizona basketball program had a new face for a new era last season. Head coach Sean Miller posted a 16-15 record in his first season, but with the start of the new era came the end of Arizona’s 25-year NCAA tournament streak. Miller enters his second season on more stable ground, and hopes to start a new streak, as the pressure will be greater.
The players put together the fun-to-watch plays and big-time stats, but without a good coach, any team will fail. Arizona’s athletic program has some of the nation’s finest coaches, and you will become familiar with their names.
continued from page B14
No. 3: … national recognition Arizona has always been known for basketball, but other Wildcat athletic programs have gained recognition throughout the collegiate world with conference and national titles in the last five years. With televised games in basketball, football and volleyball in the fall and national powerhouses in men and women’s swim and dive and softball, the Wildcats will be synonymous with Arizona instead of Northwestern, Kansas State or Kentucky.
Arizona swim coach Frank Busch has been known as a great coach over the years, but he was also known to have great teams and no championships. In 2008, all that changed when both his women and men’s teams broke through to win national championships.
One of the greatest coaches in the history of softball, Candrea was two wins away from winning yet another national championship in a runner-up finish in the national championship series loss to UCLA in 2010. Candrea has won eight national championships and has more than 1,100 wins as a coach.
No. 4: … youth to take over The men’s basketball team wasn’t the only program to have an influx of freshmen make significant contributions to Arizona athletics last season. The baseball team was the youngest in the Pacific 10 Conference, with 17 freshmen on its roster. Arizona softball’s ace arrived in the form of freshman pitcher Kenzie Fowler, who racked up 38 wins on the season. The veterans might be the team leaders, but it’s the young guns who are stepping up to the plate.
Andy Lopez Arizona baseball head coach Andy Lopez reached 1,000 wins at the end of last season, and coached a young team to the College World Series Regional before being eliminated by Baylor University. Lopez has had success everywhere he’s been, being one of three coaches to lead three different schools to the College World Series: Pepperdine, Florida and Arizona.
Mike Stoops Stoops enters his seventh season with high expectations after the Arizona football team finished in second place in the Pacific 10 Conference in 2009 for the first time in 11 seasons. After being on the hot seat in his first few years, Stoops has brought consistency to the football program with two straight bowl appearances in 2008 and 2009. The head coach hopes to win his first Pac-10 championship and lead Arizona to its first Rose Bowl.
No. 5: … Greg Byrne to be more involved Arizona’s new athletic director Greg Byrne has already started to make his mark at Arizona. Just a few months into his tenure, Byrne is already giving fans more access to the athletics program. His statements on Twitter and weekly letters to fans through Wildcat Wednesdays on arizonawildcats.com give fans a glimpse into his job and the lowdown on what’s going on around the Arizona athletics world.

Players to watch in 2010-11 By Vincent Balistreri ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT Walking around Arizona’s campus, you will encounter some of the world’s finest athletes. The UA has had many former athletes go on
to compete in the NBA, NFL, MLB and the Olympics.You might be eating lunch in the Student Union Memorial Center with the next big sports star. This school year, there will be athletes on campus who will set themselves up for the next level. Here are some of players to watch for in the 2010-11 season.
he never looked back. Foles led the team to its second-straight bowl game, and midway through the Pac-10 schedule, was arguably the best Pac-10 QB. Foles slowed down toward the end of the season, but if the junior can put together a complete season in 2010, the sky is the limit.
If you take a look at the 2011 NBA mock drafts, you’re just about guaranteed to see Derrick Williams as first-round pick. Last season, Williams surprised many with his play, which led the team in scoring, averaging 15 points and seven rebounds and ending the season by making the freshman All-American first team. The sophomore is the only player on the freshman All-American first team to return to school, which means Williams should be considered the best sophomore in college basketball.
Pitcher Kenzie Fowler came to Arizona with high expectations and she lived up to all of them. The freshman pitcher had a 38-9 record for the Wildcats and had four no-hitters in her first season. Fowler was a critical part in the Wildcats’ Women’s College World Series run, being named to the WCWS first team and leading Arizona to a runner-up finish.
Whitney Dosty Volleyball redshirt senior Whitney Dosty has battled injuries her entire Wildcat career, but when healthy, she is one of the nation’s best volleyball players. Dosty came to Arizona in 2006 with one of the most impressive freshman seasons in the history of the program. Dosty enters her last season at Arizona and could end her career on a high note, barring any more injuries.
Juron Criner Last season, Arizona’s junior wide receiver Juron Criner became the Wildcats’big play threat and major concern for the opposing team’s defenses. As a sophomore, Criner had 45 catches for 582 yards and had a teamhigh nine touchdowns. The junior is another big-time season away from the NFL Draft, so you may want to pay attention because he may not be around for long.

Oregon State aims for Rose Bowl after tough break in 2009
as the Ducks sliced and diced almost every opponent they faced. The upcoming season had figured to be more of the same, but legal troubles forced head coach Chip Kelly to dismiss Masoli from the team. While this is undoubtedly a major blow, the Ducks, led by running back LaMichael James and wide receiver Jeff Maehl, will still be one of the top teams in the Pac-10.
OREGON STATE The Beavers were just a few minutes away from a Rose Bowl berth and although the
team lost it at the hands of archrival Oregon, Oregon State continued to establish itself as a legitimate contender in 2009. The 2010 team is widely considered to be in the mix for the Pac10 title again and although they lost quarterback Sean Canfield, the Beavers return with two of the most

STANFORD Make way for the mighty Cardinal. Head coach Jim Harbaugh’s crew burst onto the scene in 2009, and tied for second in the Pac-10 with Arizona and Oregon State. Stanford loses 2009 Heisman Trophy runner-up Toby Gerhart, but stud quarterback Andrew Luck — a potential No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft — looks to pick up where he left off last season.
UCLA The Bruins eked out a bowl berth in 2009 and finished with a 7-6 overall record. UCLA was an enigma last season as it struggled to find its rhythm, despite premier talent and coaching. The Bruins return with a topnotch defense and an offense that is poised for a breakout year. FOOTBALL, page B20

right-handed pitcher Kurt Heyer. The 2010 freshman took over the Friday night spot and has shined under the lights at Sancet Stadium.
A longtime tradition of hockey in the desert starts at the Tucson Convention Center, or as it’s known, the Madhouse on Mainstreet. Head coach Leo Golembiewski has seen more than 30 years at the helm of the Arizona Icecats, a team that averages close to 4,000 attendees per game. Look for the ice to heat up when the Sun Devils roll into TCC.
John ‘Button’ Salmon:
One of the most famous Arizona athletes of all time. The student body president, quarterback and catcher on the baseball team is known for producing Arizona’s signature slogan “Bear Down!” as a result of his tragic 1926 fatal car accident. His inspiring words are painted on top of Bear Down Gym in his honor.
The Arizona softball program has found a new ace in a long line of powerful pitchers to come through Tucson and her name is Kenzie Fowler. The 5-foot-11 pitcher has 286 strikeouts and a 1.53 ERA in the regular season. Fowler also carries a hot bat, swinging .364 with a .682 slugging percentage when she steps in the batter’s box.
Lamont ‘Momo’ Jones:
Point guard Jones officially took over the reins from graduating senior Nic Wise last season when he hit his own buzzer beater at Stanford after Wise had hit two consecutive buzzer beaters earlier in the season. When the Wildcats didn’t make the NCAA tournament for the first time in 25 years, Jones guaranteed that Arizona would make the tournament in 2011 after a season-ending loss to UCLA in the Pacific 10 Tournament.

The home to the Arizona men’s and women’s basketball, gymnastics and volleyball programs since it was built in 1973, McKale Center was named for the father of Arizona athletics, J.F.“Pop”McKale. McKale served as the athletic director at Arizona from 1914 to 1957.
No Easy Buckets:
The now infamous saying reflects a Twitter post from men’s basketball player Kevin Parrom about the incident between himself and ASU guard Ty Abbott. Parrom fouled Abbott on a clear shot to the basket and simply smiled at Abbott. The incident cleared the benches of both teams in the Jan. 23 matchup.

The second-longest active appearance at the NCAA Tournament streak in Division I men’s college basketball ended in 2009 as the Arizona Wildcats failed to make the tournament. A quarter century of bragging rights and an attempt to break North Carolina’s 27-year streak ended, but the NIT still stands for “Never in Tucson.”
Pacific 10 Conference:
The “Conference of Champions” has more NCAA titles than any other Division I conference. It includes 10 teams from Arizona, California, Oregon and Washington. The Pac-10 won 388 NCAA titles through the 2009-10 season.
After missing a portion of his junior season with a shoulder injury, running back Nic Grigsby is ready to make an impact with his senior season. The speedy back is eighth all time on the Arizona career rushing total. He averaged just more than seven yards per carry in 2009.
The junior (as of fall 2010) forward for Arizona soccer leads the team in scoring with six goals last season and a career total of 12 at Arizona. The standout from La Puente, Calif., will help to rebuild the program under first-year head coach Lisa Oyen.
Sage Green and Silver:
At the turn of the 20th century, cardinal and navy hadn’t taken over Tucson quite yet. Arizona hailed sage green to represent the sage bush indigenous to the area, and silver to represent Arizona’s silver mines. Legend has it that the colors switched to red and blue when the football team needed new uniforms and cardinal and navy were the cheapest combination. A TO Z, page B22

Fall sporting events to-do list By Vincent Balistreri ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT • Football home opener against The Citadel on Sept. 11. At this point, football season will have officially begun in Tucson. The Citadel isn’t the type of opponent to sell out stadiums, but this is a game you must attend, since it’s the first Wildcat home game. • Men’s hoops Red/Blue game Oct. 24 A year after not making the
postseason for the first time in 25 years, this will be the first look at what should be an improved Arizona basketball team. The Red/Blue game is usually a time for new students to get their first taste of one of the best college basketball atmospheres in the nation at McKale Center. • Homecoming game against Washington on Oct. 23 The homecoming game is usually the grand finale to a long morning filled with homecoming activities. Last year’s homecoming game was a
boring 48-7 Arizona win against the Pac-10 football doormat Washington State. This year should be a much more competitive game against Washington. Wildcats fans may get a chance to see the 2011 NFL Draft’s potential No. 1 pick in Washington quarterback Jake Locker. • Duel in the Desert football game on Dec. 2 This is the game all Wildcat fans will have waited all season to see, TO DO, page B21

A couple thousand Zona Zoo fans prematurely rushed the field against the Oregon Ducks last season.
Five things not to do as a Wildcat fan By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA SUMMER WILDCAT
No 1: … rush into it With a 7-point lead and about three minutes left in the football game between the Arizona Wildcats and the Oregon Ducks last November, a few hundred Zona Zoo fans got the bright idea to prematurely rush the field. Oregon promptly marched down the field, tied the game, and ended up winning in double overtime, killing Arizona’s Rose Bowl hopes and embarrassing the Zona Zoo on national television. If there’s one thing you learn from reading this Campus Guide, let it be the rules for rushing an athletic venue. •1. It must be worth it to rush: hint — that usually means an upset. •2. Don’t rush until the clock reads 0:00. You’ll have plenty of time to get on the field, after the game is over. • 3. Look for the fat lady. If she’s singing, you’re good to go.

Thereâ€™s always one person whoâ€™s sadly misinformed about what the rules of the sport actually are. Sure, use your acquired sports knowledge to protest a call, but actually know what youâ€™re talking about. Know the overtime rules. Know what makes a pass complete or how many fouls it takes for someone to foul out of a basketball game.Youâ€™d be surprised at how much your knowledge will be appreciated.
No. 3: â€Ś adopt the World Cup cheering tradition The World Cup was great. Thrilling goals, excitement, and most noticeably noise. Vuvuzelas began popping up everywhere â€” even in major league baseball games. Fans are supposed to be loud, but thereâ€™s a limit to how long a person can listen to a consistent, blaring noise. It got so bad stateside that athletes began wearing earplugs while playing â€” not exactly ideal for communication between teammates. So for the sake of the fans, and more importantly the athletes, please leave your vuvuzelas at home.
No. 4: â€Ś forget to be a fan Youâ€™re a fan. So embody it. Go crazy: body paint, hats, signs - go the whole nine yards. I guarantee you, there will be others like you when you arrive at the sporting venue. They donâ€™t call it the Zona â€˜Zooâ€™ for nothing. Just wait to you get there. Take advantage of the fact that Arizona Stadium offers the largest student section in the Pacific 10 Conference. There are 10,000 seats. And theyâ€™re not up in the nosebleeds, either. In McKale Center, 2,300 seats await you. Where else are you going to get courtside seats to one of the most historic programs in NCAA Division I basketball?
No. 5: â€Ś take the rivalry lightly ASU â€“ you know that other school that you (wisely) chose not to attend up north? Things always get interesting when Tempe Normal faces off against Arizonaâ€™s first university, especially when theTerritorial Cup gets involved. The rivalry has gotten so big that there is a sponsorship to promote it across 17 collegiate sports. Ever heard of the State Farm Territorial Cup? The, ahem, Scum Devils will be sure to bring their fiery insults, so donâ€™t hold back with the Wildcat claws defending your school. Oh, and one final note: The Wildcats took home the inagural State Farm Territorial Cup Series victory 10.5 â€“ 7.5.
Huskies a darkhorse to win the Pac-10
continued from page B16
USC Talk about a whirlwind offseason. First Pete Carroll, one of the most successful coaches in college football history, bolts for the NFLâ€™s Seattle Seahawks. USC then steals head coach Lane Kiffin away from Tennessee to replace him, only to find out months later that NCAA violations committed in years past will limit USC scholarships and ban the Trojans from making the postseason for the next two years. Just because USC wonâ€™t be playing for a Rose Bowl in 2010 doesnâ€™t mean that it wonâ€™t be a difficult game. In fact, the Trojans are arguably the most talented team in the country. Look for quarterback Matt Barkley and the red and gold to squash the Rose Bowl dreams of a team or two this season.

WHATâ€™S GOING ON?

WHATâ€™S GOINGWOHATNâ€™?S GOING ON? WHATâ€™S GOING ON?
Stop me if youâ€™ve heard this before: Washington, led by quarterback Jake Locker, is the darkhorse to win the Pac-10 this year. People from coast to coast are making this bold claim, and while itâ€™s far too early to tell if it is warranted, the hype is a testament to how far the Huskies have come since Steve Sarkisian took over as head coach. After going winless in 2008, Washington went 5-7 last year, despite inferior talent compared to other Pac-10 teams. Newfound success in recruiting, mixed in with Lockerâ€™s athleticism and big arm, have a lot of people in the Pacific Northwest chomping at the bit for the season to start.
WASHINGTON STATE The Cougars finished 1-11 in 2009 and 2010 might yield a similar result. While Washington State has improved over the years, it hasnâ€™t improved to the level that other Pac-10 programs have. Unfortunately for the Cougars, 2010 looks to be another long year.

NEW YORK — For years people in the Pac-10 — from players to fans — have complained about a lack of recognition and a so-called East Coast bias that caused the conference to be under-appreciated nationally. Commissioner Larry Scott, who grew up in New York on Long Island, decided that instead of complaining it was time for the league to do something about it. Say goodbye to the old Pac-10. The league has a new logo, a new more aggressive attitude and two new members scheduled to arrive in 2011. And when Colorado and Utah officially join, the conference will also have a new name. The Pac-12 is on its way. ‘’We will be mathematically correct going forward,’’ Scott said Monday at a news conference at a Manhattan hotel. Scott brought all his football coaches and a few of his star quarterbacks - including Washington’s Jake Locker and Stanford’s Andrew Luck - to the Big Apple for a couple of days to draw a some more attention to a conference that has been making plenty of headlines this offseason. In June, Scott nearly turned the Pac-10 into the Pac-16 — and in the process nearly killed the Big 12. But Texas, Oklahoma and three other Big 12 teams decided to stay put and Scott had to settle for adding Colorado and Utah. It was a bold move by a conference known for being anything but. Scott, about to start his second season as commissioner, says he received a mandate from the university presidents he works for to remake the league and he’s embraced that task. ‘’I spent my first three months kind of listening,’’ he said. ‘’The common refrain I kept hearing was everyone recognized the excellence of the Pac-10 here on the West Coast but we don’t feel we get the respect we deserve nationally. ‘’It seemed to be a bit of an excuse and that the Pac-10 in my estimation was very laid back and passive in terms of how it went about telling its

story and promoting itself,’’he said. ‘’To me the disconnect was people worried about that but they were not really doing much about it.’’ The Pac-10 has been holding its football preseason media event at an airport hotel in Los Angeles for years. The one-day event drew little attention west of Arizona, especially in comparison to the multiple-day media circuses run by other power conferences such as the Southeastern Conference, Big Ten and Big 12. Scott attended his first Pac-10 football media day last year and was less than impressed. ‘’This can’t be how we’re promoting ourselves,’’ he said was his reaction. It’s hard to imagine coaches in the SEC or Big Ten packing up for a few days right before the start of preseason practice and traveling to New York city simply to meet the media, but Scott’s coaches embraced the idea. Oregon coach Chip Kelly, a northeasterner with roots in New England, loves the idea of the Pac-10’s outreach program. ‘’I think it’s smart. I have friends back in the northeast that want to see us play but they’re getting Big 12 games,’’Kelly said.‘’Why aren’t they getting Pac-10 games?’’ And that will be Scott’s biggest challenge. The Pac-10 will be in the market for a new television contract starting next year. Scott’s goal is to land a deal that will allow it to compete with the SEC and Big Ten, which are paying its members about twice what Pac-10 teams make based mostly on more lucrative television deals. The new logo — a sleek looking shield with images of waves and mountains surrounding the number 10 (for now) — a new website and a new promotional video that references Lewis and Clark’s exploration are nice first steps, but what the Pac-10 needs most of all is its games televised in better time slots and reaching more homes. But for now, the Pac-10 is done complaining about who’s not paying attention and going about the business of making sure it gets noticed. — The Associated Press
