Dorms “not really overbooked” BY JOCELYN VALENCIA The Daily Wildcat
With this year’s incoming class of over 7,800 new students marking the largest in UA history, it was expected that there would be a larger number of freshmen applying for on-campus housing. By mid-June, the residence halls were already full, making Residence Life unable to accommodate all the students who wanted to live on campus.
Dana Robbins-Murray, assistant director of marketing for Residence Life, dismissed claims of overbooking of students in residence halls causing them to live in resident assistant rooms and study halls. “We’re not really overbooked,” Robbins-Murray said. Every year, Residence Life tries to accommodate as many freshmen as they can who have the desire to live on campus. To make this possible, they have an extended housing program. This program opens up about 300 extended
spaces of temporary housing. Although there was an incentive program for returner students to live off-campus and the former Phi Gamma Delta fraternity was converted into a residence hall — adding 64 new bed spaces — the extended housing program was still needed due to the large number of incoming freshmen. “We convert some study halls into rooms; they’re set up that they can be rooms,” Robbins-Murray said. “We have some apartments that we convert into student housing for
the short period of time. We do put some students in with the [resident assistants], and then we have some rooms we don’t typically use that will open up for the time period.” The RAs’ contracts state that there is a possibility they will have to temporarily share their bedrooms. Those RAs who are placed in this situation are compensated for it. As soon as permanent spaces open up, these students who are placed in temporary housing are moved. These permanent spaces open up from
students who don’t show up to movein day and students who decide that living in the dorms is not for them, according to Robbins-Murray. The first students who are moved will be those currently living with RAs. RobbinsMurray added that some will be pulled out this week. As of now, there is no known number of exactly how many students are currently in temporary housing or how many RAs are sharing their

Ducey wins out crowded GOP field BY MICHEL SANCHEZ The Daily Wildcat
Election time has returned to Pima County, or Arizona 2nd Congressional District, as Congress refers to the area. Running for state governor, the Republican vote went to State Treasurer Doug Ducey, who won the GOP primary with 23,844 Pima County votes against five other opponents. Emerging from the primaries uncontested was Democratic nominee, Fred Duval. Winners for the Republican secretary of state were Michele Reagan,and for the Democrats, Terry Goddard, who earned their nominations, the former with 44 percent and the latter with 98 percent of the votes. The victor for state treasurer was Republican Jeff DeWit, and the attorney general
vote went to Mark Brnovich with the Republicans and uncontested Felecia Rotellini for the Democrats. A swift victory came in the primaries for the House of Representatives, where previous winners Martha McSally and Rep. Ron Barber won. Martha McSally, the local Republican favorite, emerged victorious in her party’s primary with 69 percent of the vote against Kais Shelley and former United States Air Force Chief Master Sergeant Chuck Wooten. Ron Barber ran undisputed in District 2 for the Democratic primary, pitting him against his previous opponent, McSally, in the general elections in the coming months. — Follow Michel Sanchez @DailyWildcat

Bike theft precaution needed especially near dorms
BY ADRIANA ESPINOSA The Daily Wildcat
With the beginning of a new school year, several students will navigate their way around campus via bicycle, which may lead to bicycle theft for some unlucky students. Elliot Montgomery, a UA alumnus, conducted research ranging from 2006 to 2013 regarding bike thefts at residence halls across campus. His most recent research is a follow-up study on bike thefts that he conducted in 2012. This study includes the bike theft during the years 2012 and 2013 that he is still working on. In Montgomery’s data, he noted that residence halls are a prime spot for bicycle theft, particularly at the beginning of fall semester, experiencing nearly 40 percent to 50 percent of their thefts in August,
The current college football landscape has forced defensive coordinators to game plan drastically different than even just 10 years ago. The amount of spread offenses and empty backfield sets are the primary offensive sets for many college football teams around the nation, especially in the Pac-12 Conference. With so many top tier quarterbacks coming through the ranks recently, team scores approach the 40s and 50s on a regular basis. This puts enormous pressure on defensive coaches as they try
September and October. According to Montgomery’s study, the Manzanita-Mohave Residence Hall experiences the most bike thefts. Approximately 31 percent of bike thefts at Manzanita-Mohave occur in September, followed by 13 percent in August and 12 percent in March. Since 2006, the most reported bike thefts occurred in 2009 and 2010, with 16 reported thefts per year followed by 13 reported thefts in 2012. However, that number decreased with only one reported bike theft in 2013. Montgomery points out that while there was only one theft in 2013, that was the only reported theft, and that there was likely to have been other stolen bikes that were not reported at Manzanita-Mohave. That is an average of 8.375 stolen bikes per year since 2006 at that residence hall, according to Montgomery’s study.

Cornerback is, arguably, the toughest position to play on the defensive side of the game. At Arizona, between coaching changes and transfers, cornerbacks have revolved rather quickly over the past couple years.

Ricky Maciel, an astronomy and physics junior, experienced residence hall bike theft last year. In September 2013, Maciel’s bike was stolen off of the bike racks in front of the Árbol de la Vida Residence Hall overnight after his roommate had locked it up. “My roommate [who was borrowing the bike] locked the bike through the tire to the rack, instead of locking the body of the bike to the rack,” Maciel said. “So the person just took the bike and left the tire that the lock was on.” Maciel was using a U-Lock to secure his bike to the bike racks around campus. The U-Lock is also the bike lock that the University of Arizona Police Department sells to students. UAPD also encourages students to register their bikes with the

NATION & WORLD Nuclear waste eruption raises safety questions
Editor: Meghan Fernandez firstname.lastname@example.org (520) 621-3193 twitter.com/dailywildcat
Israel, Hamas agree to open-ended ceasefire on Tuesday MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE
ON MAY 30, Waste Isolation Pilot Plant recovery teams obtained samples from the previously identified damaged drum and nearby magnesium oxide piles. The sample contents will be analyzed as part of the investigation to determine the cause of the Feb. 14 radiological event in New Mexico.
A 55-gallon drum of nuclear waste, buried in a salt shaft 2,150 feet under the New Mexico desert, violently erupted late on Feb. 14 and spewed mounds of radioactive white foam. The flowing mass, looking like whipped cream and laced with plutonium, went airborne, traveled up a ventilation duct to the surface and exposed 21 workers to lowlevel radiation. The accident contaminated the nation’s only dump for nuclear-weapons waste — previously a focus of pride for the Energy Department — and gave the nation’s nuclear chemists a mystery they still cannot unravel. Six months after the accident, the chemical reaction that caused the drum to burst is still not understood. The Energy Department has been unable to precisely identify the chemical composition of the waste in the drum, a serious error in a handling process that requires careful
documentation and approval of every substance packaged for a nuclear dump. The job of identifying the waste that is treated and prepared for burial will become even more difficult in the years ahead, when the Energy Department hopes to treat even more highly radioactive wastes stored at nuclear processing sites across the country and transform them into glass that will be buried in dumps. The accident at the facility near Carlsbad, N.M., known as the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, or WIPP, is likely to cause at least an 18-month shutdown and possibly a closing that could last several years. Waste shipments have already backed up at nuclear cleanup projects across the country, which even before the accident were years behind schedule. A preliminary Energy Department investigation found more than 30 safety lapses at the plant, including technical shortcomings and failures in the overall approach to safety. Only nine days before the radiation release, a giant salt-hauling
truck caught fire underground and burned for hours before anyone discovered it. The report found that “degradation of key safety management programs and safety culture resulted in the release of radioactive material from the underground to the environment.” The 15-year-old plant, operated by a partnership led by San Francisco-based URS Corp., “does not have an effective nuclear safety program,” the investigation found. The accident raises tough questions about the Energy Department’s ability to safely manage the nation’s stockpiles of nuclear waste, a job that is already decades behind schedule and facing serious technical challenges. “The accident was a horrific comedy of errors,” said James Conca, a scientific adviser and expert on the WIPP. “This was the flagship of the Energy Department, the most successful program it had. The ramifications of this are going to be huge. Heads will roll.”
Demonstrators protest jailing of U.S. marine MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Demonstrators, including a Republican lawmaker, gathered outside the historic Leland Stanford Mansion in Sacramento on Tuesday to protest the jailing of a U.S. Marine in Mexico. Gov. Jerry Brown is hosting a luncheon for Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto at the mansion, part of Pena’s two-day visit to California. “I refuse to eat with Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi’s captors,” said Republican Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, who helped organize the protest. “We want him to give us our Marine back.” The Marine reservist, Tahmooressi, illegally entered Mexico in March with three firearms and is awaiting trial. Tahmooressi says he crossed the border by accident, and his case has become a cause célèbre for some conservatives in the U.S. Mexican officials said the judicial system must run its course, and Brown did not publicly address the issue when he was in Mexico City on a fourday trade mission last month. The protesters said they
believed Tahmooressi’s explanation that he crossed into Mexico by accident. “It was just an honest mistake,” said Diane Nye, a mother of four from Fair Oaks, Calif. Fidel Taylor, a firearms instructor and retired police officer, drove an hour from Valley Springs, Calif., for the protest. He wore an American flag shirt, carried an iPhone in an American flag case and hoisted a “Free Our Marine” sign. Taylor served in the Army during Desert Storm and said protests are needed to get the attention of political leaders. “We have to respect their system,” said Taylor, when asked about the Mexican legal process underway in Tahmooressi’s case. “But do I feel like he’s gotten a fair shake? Not at all.” He said he’s disappointed President Barack Obama has negotiated for captives such as Bowe Bergdahl, who was held by the Taliban in Afghanistan, but has not addressed Tahmooressi’s case publicly. Brown, speaking on KNXAM in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning, declined to answer questions about Tahmooressi.

“I think it’s the prudent course for me, as the chief executive, not to start opining on factual legal matters that only a radio host is presenting,” he said. Brown also dismissed Donnelly, who ran for governor this year until finishing behind Republican opponent Neel Kashkari in the June primary, as a conspiracy theorist. “He thinks Common Core [new standards for school curricula] is some U.N. plot or something,” Brown said. “Some people are so far out in right field.” Other Republican lawmakers have taken different approaches to the situation. GOP state Sen. Joel Anderson said he won’t join the protest, but he won’t attend the lunch, either. “I am concerned that our military would feel betrayed if it appeared we condoned the harsh and unfair treatment of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi,” he said in a statement. GOP Assemblyman Donald Wagner said he will attend the lunch and hopes to speak with the Mexican president directly about Tahmooressi. “I do not believe a sidewalk
protest by members of the Legislature is an appropriate or particularly effective way to continue advancing the cause of justice in this case,” Wagner said in a statement. In a letter to Nieto, Republican Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez lamented how the Tahmooressi case has caused “unnecessary friction” between the U.State.s and Mexico. “If you personally examine the facts, we are confident that you will come to the same conclusion that we and many others have made — Sergeant Tahmooressi made an honest mistake and should be allowed to return home as quickly as possible,” Melendez wrote. She intends to deliver the letter during the luncheon; 16 additional Assembly GOP members have signed on. Donnelly said he was glad some of his Republican colleagues planned to address the issue with the president. “That’s how they choose to deal with it,” he said. “I have my own way.”
TEL AVIV, Israel — An agreement bringing a longterm halt to hostilities between Israel and Hamas may be only the first step in stopping what has been the longest, deadliest and most destructive of three wars the two sides have fought in the last six years in the Gaza Strip. The two sides reached agreement Tuesday on the open-ended ceasefire, but highly contentious talks lie ahead, and the disputes reflect the vast gulf between Israel and the militant group Hamas, whose charter does not recognize Israel’s right to exist. Substantive negotiations are to begin within a month, but the broader aims of the two sides appear difficult to reconcile. With word of the Egyptian-brokered truce, thousands of Palestinians poured into the streets of Gaza and the West Bank, many waving the green flag of Hamas to celebrate what was proclaimed to be a victory. Celebratory gunfire rang out, and mosques left undamaged by the fighting blared out calls of “God is great!” In Israel, the reaction was more muted. Some local officials in Israel’s south, hit hard by weeks of relentless rocket fire, urged residents to stay away from home for the time being, fearful that fighting would resume. Senior figures were at pains to express skepticism that the declared cessation of hostilities would hold. “We’ve had, unfortunately, a whole series of ceasefires that were violated by Hamas,” prime ministerial spokesman Mark Regev told the BBC. Fighting had stuttered to a halt earlier this month, only to reignite with renewed fury a week ago. The seven-week conflict has wreaked far more devastation than previous ones. Huge swaths of Gaza lie in ruins, with more than 2,100 Palestinians killed, most of them civilians, according to U.N. estimates. International organizations have said reconstruction will be an undertaking requiring decades. Even the short-term humanitarian needs are dire, with hundreds of thousands displaced, many of them lacking basic necessities such as electricity and clean water. Israel, in turn, was shaken by the revelation that Hamas had prepared an elaborate network of infiltration tunnels meant to enable large-scale attacks against it. Ceaseless rocket fire exacted a heavy psychological toll, even if the civilian death toll of five on the Israeli side was dwarfed by Palestinian fatalities. The deaths of 64 Israeli soldiers represented the largest loss of military lives in nearly a decade, since the 2006 conflict with the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah. The outlines of the accord, by the accounts of those who have taken part in indirect talks over the last week, were strikingly similar to the terms of the ceasefire that ended the last Gaza war, in 2012. Under it, the seaside strip blockade will be eased to allow in humanitarian aid and material for reconstruction — but with strict monitoring meant to ensure that Hamas does not use shipped-in supplies such as cement to embark on another tunnel-building campaign. Palestinian fishermen are to be given an expanded offshore zone of six miles. But other Hamas demands, such as the building of a Gaza seaport and the reopening of its long-shuttered airport, will be addressed later, after the truce has held for a month. Israel also seeks the remains of slain Israeli soldiers believed to be held by the group, and the disarmament of Hamas — something the group has flatly rejected in the past. Crucially, Israel is seeking to empower Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who — in a weighted symbolic gesture — was allowed to give early word of the ceasefire, in a speech delivered prior to the formal announcement from Egyptian mediators in Cairo. Israel wants the Palestinian Authority, ejected from Gaza by Hamas in 2007, to regain a strong foothold in the territory, with its forces helping to monitor the crossings in and out of the coastal strip. Abbas made clear he hopes that the upcoming round of talks will incorporate attempts to reach a wider and more durable agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. “What’s next?” he asked in the televised speech announcing the ceasefire. “Should we expect another war after a year or two? … We want to put our vision for a solution to the international community.” In Washington, Secretary of State John F. Kerry issued a statement cautiously hailing the truce and promising that the U.S. would participate in the reconstruction of Gaza. Although he pointedly said that it would do so in coordination with Abbas and not for the benefit of “Hamas and other terrorist organizations.” Kerry, whose exhaustive efforts at reaching a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority came up empty earlier this year, seemed to refer to that. “We are approaching the next phase with our eyes wide open,” he said. “We have been down this road before and we are all aware of the challenges ahead.”

Afghan linguists deserve U.S. visas BY ABE JIMENEZ
The Daily Wildcat
he War in Afghanistan is not ending. It’s not closing up shop like a store gone out of business. It’s not being put out to pasture like an old war horse. Not for the Afghan people. This is evident to the Afghan government, which has been in a precarious position since this summer’s contested and disputed elections. Those elections led to an agreement facilitated by Secretary of State John Kerry for a recount and a coalition government. Amidst the rising tension and violence of the past two years, Afghan interpreters, who played a key role in helping U.S. forces since 2001, have had to endure a surge of revenge attacks targeting them and their families. Without a status of forces agreement that helps coordinate and gives support to the Afghan National Security Forces, both Afghan civilians and government personnel will come under increased pressure by the insurgency’s attempt to reassert itself. Afghan interpreters were subject to a rigorous screening process and placed in a position where they honorably gained the trust of their American comrades, and they are now being harassed, threatened and killed by those who see them as traitors. Recent reports done by VICE News and other media outlets, such as the Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post , have documented the experience of some former interpreters and their struggles for survival as NATO and U.S. Forces prepare to leave Afghanistan . Many have been killed and tortured, along with their family members. Others, fleeing death threats, are in hiding away from their families in Afghanistan or are trying to obtain the absurd amounts of money needed to be smuggled out . Those who succeed in finding the money to pay a smuggler are usually transported to countries like Turkey , Greece and Italy in horrid conditions. Once they’ve arrived, they find themselves trapped in legal limbo, living on the margins of their new societies. These men served bravely alongside U.S. and NATO forces, often risking their lives and investing themselves in the mission to secure their country. The recent investigations of the Veterans Administration have led to a national discussion about the debts of war. But with the discussion of our debts to our own veterans come questions about what we owe to those who served and sided with us against their own neighbors and countrymen. It should not be a difficult question. If aiding an American war effort puts an Afghan citizen’s life in danger, the least that the U.S. can do in return is process their visa application. Instead, many of these interpreters have been finding their applications in a state of permanent delay, despite the extensive documentation they possess as a result of their service. The limitations placed by law on the number of visas available have been getting in the way . Congress has attempted to remedy this shortage by passing legislation earlier this month extending the number of visas by an additional 1,000 , but too many will still be left behind. For a country that dually prides itself on its treatment of those who have served in the military and on its acceptance of immigrants from around the world, this problem is a true embarrassment. In this case, we have abandoned both our promise to “leave no man behind” and our obligation to accept the “huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” — Abe Jimenez is a Middle Eastern & North African studies graduate student.

We cannot sit idly by while the future labor and economic power of our society is burdened with debt and fear by a government that is afraid to spend money even on the things that government is obligated to spend money on. The government could easily fund a far higher percentage of college operating costs just by raising taxes on the proverbial “one percent,” or the wealthiest 1 percent of people in the U.S. The U.S. has one of the lowest tax rates of any industrialized nation, ranking 22nd out of 25 countries according to The Atlantic, and the tax rate on the rich is about one-third of what it was in the early 1960s, according to famed economist Thomas Piketty. I think the one percent could live with a bump in taxes to pay for the general public’s education, and we should push for that to happen. As the new school year begins, I say, let’s start this fight. Education should not be perverted into a profit-making scheme but must exist as a public good that is accessible to all. And the most notable feature of a public good, of course, is public funding. Let’s make that the notable feature of our public education. — Tom Johnson is a film and television studies junior. Follow him @tbok1992
Tobacco ban oversteps authority R eturning to school always means a curbing of freedoms. There’s less time for sleeping, but somehow more time for crying. At some point, we conceded defeat to these fundamental truths of college. Qué será, será. But this semester, we found a fresh set of restrictions awaiting us which, for some, read more like a curb stomp: our campus’ new smoking and tobacco policy. All forms of tobacco are now banned on university property, and e-cigarettes are restricted from use in buildings, athletic facilities, parking garages and within 25 feet of entrances and exits. A cigarette smoking ban has been in the works for years, and, while its final draft was more strict than expected and warranted, its eventual passage came as no surprise. The inclusion of other forms of tobacco and nicotine, on the other hand, is bizarre. Allowing e-cigarettes in some areas is a step in the right direction from the original proposal, which would have banned them entirely, but having e-cigarettes restricted in a trillion areas still irks us. A ban on cigarette smoking is essentially

a ban on secondhand smoke and isn’t difficult to understand from that perspective. There still has been no proven health risk to those in the vicinity of smokeless tobacco and e-cigarette users, and suspicions don’t make good public policy. They don’t cause the campus to be littered with paper butts or create fire hazards. In fact, one of the reasons to use an e-cigarette is to avoid creating secondhand
smoke and to prevent harm to others. There is no public health justification for a ban on e-cigarettes, only a private moral one. And that’s not good enough. Students at the UA engage in a myriad of behaviors that are unhealthy, unwise and undesirable from the administration’s point of view. Why do they keep doing them? Because they enjoy it, because
they’re addicted but most importantly, because they’re adults who can choose to do so. It’s any human’s right to be able to put any toxins into their body if they so desire, no matter what university they attend. With this newest policy, it seems that the university has decided that some students’ vices are more welcome than others. We’re left wondering where and how that line is drawn, whether it’s
the university’s line to draw, and even if the sand belongs to it in the first place. The university has a right to protect its public spaces and its unwilling secondhand smokers. It has no such obligation to protect students from themselves. This attempt to do so is nothing short of paternalistic and inappropriate moral policing, and it should not be the official policy of an inclusive university. E-cigarettes and many smokeless tobacco products are new technologies. It’s natural for there to be an adjustment period while new policies are created to deal with their use. But repurposing old rules for new products, especially when those old rules already delve too far into students’ personal lives, will only create an atmosphere of confusion and control.

A University of Arizona Police Department officer was sent to the A-Store at Main Gate Square after its loss prevention staff was unable to stop a man from leaving the store after shoplifting. The man, wearing a Lakers jersey and black shorts, was believed to have taken two lanyards and a money clip. The two staff members asked him to come back inside the store after he had been seen taking merchandise, but the man said, â€œI didnâ€™t take anything, and I am in a hurry.â€? One of the staff members informed the man that if he did not comply, the staff member would call UAPD, and the shoplifter said, â€œDo what you need to do,â€? and walked off. Once he noticed that he was being followed, the man ran to the Jack in the Box parking lot and entered a silver Hyundai. With this information, another officer was able to stop the man. He admitted to only stealing a blue UA wallet, so the first officer searched the vehicle. Not only did the officer find the missing money clip, but he also discovered a pink cloth bag with a syringe and a spoon which appeared to have heroin residue on it. The man denied owning the paraphernalia, saying, â€œI donâ€™t know what that is, but it is not mine.â€? The officer also discovered a 2-inch glass pipe, which the man admitted to owning, saying that he uses the pipe to smoke marijuana. The shoplifter was then cited and released, and the paraphernalia was placed into Property and Evidence. The total value stolen was $24.98.

A cracked-up criminal
A non-UA affiliated man was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of stealing bikes. A UAPD officer was on his way to another call when he noticed a man matching a description of a bike theft perpetrator near the Highland Commons with a gold-colored bike. The officer stopped to talk with the suspect and observed him placing two pairs of wire cutters into a grocery bag. The man also had a gray and black cable lock on his lap, which he threw behind the wall while the officer turned to look at the bike. Another officer arrived on the scene and asked the man if he had any weapons on him. He replied, â€œI have a pipe.â€? The suspect then handed over a metallic crack pipe about 3 1/2 inches long. The suspect then claimed that the bike next to him was his, and that he had the wire cutters to work on his bike. When asked about the cable lock, the man denied having it and throwing it behind the wall. Two witnesses then arrived and identified the suspect as the man who had stolen the bike. After these statements, the officer arrested the man, searched him and found a second glass pipe in his possession. Both of the pipes tested positive for crack cocaine. The man was issued a one-year exclusionary order and charged with possession of burglary tools and drug paraphernalia, as well as theft and criminal trespassing in the third degree. Another officer then escorted the man to Pima County Jail.

Oregon, UCLA start season on top
NUMBER OF THE DAY BY JAMES KELLEY
In two days, Rich Rodriguez and his Arizona Wildcats open up the 2013-14 season against UNLV in a nationally televised game on ESPN.
The Daily Wildcat
1. No. 3 Oregon Led by Heisman candidate Marcus Mariota, this is the year the Ducks find a solution to the Stanford problem. With the Cardinal coming to Eugene, Oregon will get past Stanford and make it to the playoffs. This week: Saturday vs. South Dakota 2. No. 11 Stanford The Cardinal closed out the Bowl Championship Series error, I mean era, with four straight trips to BCS bowls, but that major bowl streak will end this year. Stanford returns 11 starters, but only four on offense, so it won’t keep up with Oregon and UCLA. Saturday vs. UC Davis
3. No. 25 Washington The Huskies lost Bishop Sankey, Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Keith Price, but like Arizona, they return the bulk of their starters. Washington returns 14 starters, including its whole offensive line. U Dub’s good enough to hold off Oregon State. This week: Saturday at Hawaii 4. Oregon State The Beavers feature one of the best quarterbacks in the country in Sean Mannion and return 14 starters but aren’t quite good enough to jump over Washington. Plus, the Beavers play the Huskies in Seattle. This week: vs. Portland State 5. Washington State Last year, the Cougars ended
their 10-year bowl drought and beat USC and Arizona on the road. Wazzu is on the rise and should make it to another bowl game this season. This week: Thursday vs. Rutgers (in Seattle) 6. California After former UA assistant coach Sonny Dykes went 1-11 in this first year without a win over a Football Bowl Subdivision team, Cal’s head coach is on the hot seat, according to some. The Bears will be better, but not much. Dykes will have to suffer through another tough season. This week: Saturday at Northwestern
Led by Heisman candidate Brett Hundley and Myles Jack, who would’ve won the Pac-12 Conference’s Slashie Award if only it had one, the Bruins are poised to reach their third Pac12 Championship game. In fact, with Oregon, USC and Stanford at home, the Bruins could take Jim Mora to the playoffs. Playoffs!? This week: Saturday at Virginia 2. No. 15 USC Pete Carroll protégé Steve Sarkisian returns to Troy to try and relive USC’s glory days. The Trojans are talented and return 14 starters but don’t have lot of depth due to the NCAA sanctions. This week: Saturday vs. Fresno
1. No. 7 UCLA

CORNERBACK FROM PAGE 1
significant playing time at the position include: redshirt senior Jonathan McKnight ; redshirt freshman Jarvis McCall Jr.; and true freshman Cam Denson. McKnight is the elder statesman of the group and has taken on a leadership role this offseason with his performance in fall camp. “He’s stronger than he’s been in his whole career, and he’s healthier,” Rodriguez said. “He’s one of the leaders back there, and I’m looking for him to have a big year.” After amassing 54 total tackles and two
THE DAILY WILDCAT • 7
interceptions last season, McKnight should see the brunt of the assignments against opposing No. 1 receivers. Joining him in the starting lineup will be McCall Jr. Starting the 6-foot-2 cornerback follows the trend around the football world of playing bigger cornerbacks. His length and ability to meet taller wide receivers at the apex is key against spread offenses and the increasing number of deep throws made in the game today. McCall Jr. said he’s been working on his craft this offseason and, in addition to making plays, wants to be more of a technician at his position.
POWER RANKINGS FROM PAGE 6
State 3. Arizona After back to back 8-5 seasons with bowl wins, Rich Rodriguez has the UA poised for something big and soon. The Wildcats return 12 starters, including four of five on the offensive line, plus Austin Hill, who, after being one of the best receivers in the country, missed 2013. This week: Friday vs. UNLV 4. No. 19 ASU The Sun Devils are ranked and the Pac-12 dark horse pick by many, but the fact remains that they lost nine starters on defense, plus their star running back, Marion Grice. ASU and Arizona are about a push, but the Wildcats get the edge with the Territorial Cup game being in Tucson.
“Over the offseason, I worked more on my technique, but I love to say I’m a play-maker,” McCall Jr. said. “Being a defensive player … my coach would say, ‘You want to get off the field, go out there and get me the ball back.’ So that’s how I see it every time.” Along the same lines of taller cornerbacks, Denson will have a real chance to see the field this season. So far, Denson has been moved on the roster from wide receiver to cornerback, and, with so many reliable receivers on the roster, he should see the majority of this playing time at corner this season. The 5-foot-11, 167-pound Denson uses
his length to play much bigger than his frame would indicate and has natural ball skills that come with playing both wide receiver and cornerback in high school. “He’s got great ball skills,” Arizona cornerbacks coach David Lockwood said. “We were laughing yesterday during [practice] on the last play, on a deep ball, [Denson] turned and went up one handed and snatched it. He’s got great hands. … Once he masters his technique, that’ll allow him to do what he does best and go make plays.” REBECCA MARIE SASNETT/THE DAILY WILDCAT

This week: Thursday vs. Weber State 5. Utah After initial struggles adjusting to big boy football, the Utes, who beat Stanford last year, comprise a team on the rise. They’ll get to their first bowl game since joining the league, but it’ll be as a 6-6 team. This week: Thursday vs. Idaho State 6. Colorado The Buffaloes won four games last year, their most since 2010, but two of those came against FCS teams. CU’s getting better, but it’s a victim of the powerful Pac-12, so it remains a cellar dweller. This week: Friday vs. Colorado State (in Denver)

Venturing downtown to network BY Joseph Ambre The Daily Wildcat
A networking event known as Bear Down Downtown will give students and guests the opportunity to meet with local business leaders and alumni. Beginning in the Student Union Memorial Center South Ballroom, students will hear from UA president Ann Weaver Hart and Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild, along with other UA community and campus leaders. The event will then transition to downtown Tucson, with the new Sun Link Tucson Modern Streetcar picking up students at Second Street and Highland Avenue. From 5:45 p.m. - 8 p.m., there will be multiple destinations for students and guests to explore. In the Jacome Plaza, students will have the opportunity to meet with multiple nonprofits, such as the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson and the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. Marie Logan, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters, will be one of the many community leaders attending the event. “There are 170 kids in the Tucson community looking for a Big Brother or a Big Sister,” Logan said. Big Brothers Big Sisters is one nonprofit looking to raise interest in the future benefits volunteer programs bring to college students, such as networking opportunities and a greater understanding of adversity faced in the Tucson community, according to Logan. Other available destinations will be at Connect Coworking, CoLab Workspace, Maker House and UA Downtown. “We would like to expose students to the UA Downtown location and its benefits,” said Marilyn Robinson, the associate director of the Drachman Institute.

Bear Down Downtown is an event that will take UA students to various urban hot spots. Connect Coworking in the Rialto Theatre is one of the stops on this networking tour.
Robinson will be another local business leader attending the event. At UA Downtown, students will see an urban innovation tour, which includes the Sustainable City Project, an educational collaboration between the Tucson community, the Drachman Institute, the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, and the College of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture. Robinson said she believes that the UA Downtown location will give students a broader understanding of the Tucson community and
the opportunities that it presents after students graduate. Students will be able to expand their learning opportunities outside the classroom and into Tucson. CoLab Workspace will conduct training sessions on entrepreneurship. Students will also be given the opportunity to meet and network with community leaders. Students looking to flex their creative muscle should make a stop at the Maker House. There, students can enjoy live music in the courtyard and learn about artistic events and internship
Colorful clubs populate Mall to recruit students
special guest appearance by the UA athletic director Greg Byrne. Prizes for alumni include a pair of football tickets to the Friday game against the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Prior registration is not needed but is encouraged to receive updates.

5 Quick Facts about UA campus BY lindsey stegemoller The Daily Wildcat
n honor of the first week of school, here is a list of some interesting facts that freshmen can relay to their folks back home.
BY Daniel Burkart The Daily Wildcat
As school starts back up again, students have the chance to become involved in student organizations once again. But, like every year, there is always a fresh batch of clubs to choose from. This Tuesday, the UA Mall was lined with booths belonging to just a small fraction of the large number of clubs available for students to dive into. The Student Involvement Fair is an annual event that showcases many student clubs and encourages students to join. “I’m always excited to hear about new clubs coming to our campus,” said Jordan Allison, ASUA executive vice president. “So far, I’ve heard of some awesome organizations on their way. Notably, an organization that promotes LGBTQ awareness in STEM fields, a restart of UA’s chapter of To Write Love on Her Arms and an organization that brings together computer and ‘hacker’ enthusiasts.” These are just a few of the new clubs that students can immerse themselves in on top of the nearly 600 student organizations already in place at the UA. Whether students are looking to broaden their horizons and try their hand at something new or meet some like-minded people, there is something for everyone. “College is the perfect arena for young people to feel empowered enough to create a paradigm change,” said Johnny Tran, the Harry Potter Alliance Organizer at the UA. “There are many communities, much like our club, that are here to help facilitate that process.” The UA’s chapter of the international nonprofit organization aims to create “positive social change by bringing Harry Potter fans together,” Tran said. “Our ultimate goal is to destroy real-world dark magic and Horcruxes like poverty, inequality, homophobia, illiteracy, et cetera. In other words, we advocate for civic engagement through the lens of Harry Potter and other fandoms.” Like the Harry Potter Alliance, students have carved out specialty niches that can appeal to a wide variety of students’ interests all over campus. Some have very particular interests. “A normal life,” reads the official description for the short-lived Zombie Invasion Preparation Club. “That was all we ever wanted … until they came. They took everything from us.” The epitome of the college experience is being able to sit down over weekly ice cream and discuss the proper protocol of
opportunities. Connect Coworking will also be another urban stop during the night. Guests will attend sessions on successful networking tactics and communication techniques for influential people. Housed in the historic Rialto Theatre, Connect Coworking opened its doors in 2013 to businesses looking for creative spaces to work. The event will end with music, fun and prizes at The Beach, which is located behind Hotel Congress. Many community leaders, alumni, employers and students will be in attendance. There will also be a

Numerous booths were lined up on the UA Mall on Tuesday to promote the Student Involvement Fair. Tyler Santy, employee at the Rialto Theatre, dresses up as “Rialtor” the dragon to promotes the Rialto Theatre.

There are many other interesting books within Special Collections, including a scrapbook made by a UA student from the early 1900s.

These mirrors are used in many telescopes around the world due to the amazing new technologies that the mirror lab technicians have developed over the years.
fending off an inevitable zombie attack. Even better is having a group of friends to do it with. “I started this club as a simple jest, a ruse to take my mind off things,” said Matthew Lee, president of the Zombie Invasion Preparation Club. While the fact remains that clubs come and go, there will always be a wide variety of them for students to get involved with. “Club recognition and renewal will occur beginning next week, Sept. 2 through Sept. 12,” Allison said. “At this time, clubs will be able to renew their recognition through ASUA and register any new organizations.” A new wave of clubs and opportunities will soon become part of the UA. “I am ecstatic to work with our clubs and organizations this year,” Allison said, “and watch our university students become engaged and involved.”
4. The Community Garden
Do you have a green thumb? There is a plot of land on Mountain Avenue and Mabel Street that is available for anyone to rent so they can grow their own fruits and vegetables. It is only $40 to rent a plot for an entire year of gardening.
5. Keep the Cows Out
Have you noticed the black lava rock towards the Main Gate entrance of the university? It was built originally to keep cows off campus! And you thought bikers were bad. Rebecca Marie Sasnett/The Daily Wildcat

Old Main may now have a fresh coat of paint, but it still has some old skeletons in its closet. A ghost dating back to the 19th century is rumored to still haunt the building’s halls.
