Students reflect on policy one week after it’s been in effect BY CHRISTIANNA SILVA The Daily Wildcat
The UA created a new tobacco policy that went into effect on Aug. 25. Students so far have reported a mix of appreciation, anger and indifference towards it. The policy states that the

university now “prohibits the use of products that contain tobacco or nicotine, including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, bidis, kreteks, hookahs, water pipes and all forms of smokeless tobacco,” or littering with “remains of tobacco or smoking-related products.” The reasoning behind the new policy is, in short, health. The official policy states that “the university is dedicated to providing a healthy environment for those who participate in university activities.”

The computer programming for engineering applications course was recently restructured for the 2014-2015 academic year. The introductory engineering course now emphasizes student participation, incorporation of discussion into the lecture and the addition of a lab, an aspect that was not previously a part of the course pioneered by Loukas Lazos, an associate professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Aside from the newly added lab time of three hours, the course now also has previous students working with current students to enhance understanding. “The class has been restructured to incorporate one-to-one help, team-based activities during lecture and interactive learning tools,” Lazos said. Lazos said that the major change to the lecture sessions is making them a flippedclassroom setting where the homework is done before the students attend the lecture. “The students will review lecture material ahead of time, leaving class time for problem solving exercises and in-depth conceptual discussion,” Lazos said. Students, such as Scott Marshall, an engineering sophomore, seem to be benefiting from the change in the course. “Each lab piggybacks on the lab before it, which is a good structure for me because it helps me retain information,” Marshall said. “A lot of times, you will learn something and then forget it. I like the structure, and it means I’m not super stressed going into a test.” Other students expressed

UA professors are beginning to implement a no-laptop, no-tablet policy in their classrooms, citing research as a reason for creating the policy . Some students listed courses with professors using this policy: elementary Latin I , introductory physics II , introductory biology , introduction to international relations, readings in the
literary genres and history of medieval India. Maha Nassar, professor of the history of the Arab-Israeli conflict course, said that the switch from the “mixed policy” she has employed in the past was spurred by “the overwhelming research,” referring to studies that have come out over the past six months about the retention rate of students who use laptops in class versus those who write out their notes by hand .

Environmentalist groups seek butterfly protection mclatchy-tribune
WASHINGTON — A coalition of environmental and food-safety groups is asking the Fish and Wildlife Service to grant endangered species protection to the monarch butterfly, whose U.S. population, the groups say, last year fell to 90 percent below its 20-year average. In a petition asking for the designation, which would allow the federal government to more aggressively protect the butterfly and its habitat, the petitioners blamed Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide and Roundup Ready crops for much of the decline. “The vast majority of genetically engineered crops are made to be resistant to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, a uniquely potent killer of milkweed, the monarch caterpillar’s only food,” the Center for Biological Diversity, the Center for Food Safety and the Xerces Society said in a joint statement, also signed by monarch scientist Lincoln Brower of Virginia’s Sweet Briar College. The statement said that the “butterfly’s dramatic decline is being driven by the widespread planting of genetically engineered crops in the Midwest where most monarchs are born. “The dramatic surge in Roundup use with Roundup Ready crops has virtually wiped out milkweed plants in Midwestern corn and soybean fields,” the statement said. In an emailed response, Monsanto spokeswoman Charla Lord said: “Scientists think a number of interrelated factors are contributing to the decline and year-to-year variation of monarch butterfly populations. While weather events (snow fall and frost) at mountaintop overwintering sites and logging in Mexico continue

studying pre-neuroscience and cognitive science, had a different take. Hassan is enrolled in an introductory biology course whose professor is implementing a similar policy. “I don’t agree with the policy,” Hassan said. “I believe each student knows how they learn, and it shouldn’t be up to the teacher to restrict laptop usage.”

There are some exceptions, including electric cigarettes and cigars, nicotine patches and nasal sprays that contain nicotine and nicotine gums. Smoking is also permitted if it is being used for “controlled research with prior approval of the administrator responsible for the facility and, in the case of smoking, the University Fire Marshal,” according to the UA’s official policy. Tobacco may also be used in classroom instruction or experiments, or for traditional, cultural or religious uses. Dillon Ramage, a film and television senior, is not satisfied with the new policy. As a smoker, Ramage said that he enjoys his smoke breaks between classes and that he doesn’t know if the policy will even stop smokers. Ramage also said that the university may be attempting to make the population on campus more healthy and stop smokers altogether, but instead, it is

to be factors, experts are also focusing on agricultural practices and land use changes that have reduced milkweeds along the migration path in central regions of North America.” She said Monsanto would help “restore habitat that supports the monarch migration.” The environmental and foodsafety groups say the butterfly’s population has fallen from a high of 1 billion in the mid-1990s to about 35 million last year, and that that number is only about a tenth of the 20-year average. The monarch is also threatened by climate change, drought and heat waves, urban sprawl and logging on its wintering grounds in Mexico, the petitioners said. Tierra Curry, a senior scientist at the Center for Biological Diversity, said good weather this year may boost numbers when the group Monarch Watch does its winter
survey, but “we’re at risk of losing a symbolic backyard beauty that has been part of the childhood of every generation.” Gavin Shire, a spokesman for the Fish and Wildlife Service, said his agency was required by federal regulations to respond to the petition “to the extent practicable” within 90 days. The agency could decide to extend the review up by nine months more before deciding on the request. The butterfly currently has no special protection designation from the FWS. The Missouri Department of Conservation has been monitoring the monarch’s decline. The organization’s Tim Smith predicted on the agency’s website in April that “the sight of the beautiful orange and black monarch butterfly in Missouri is likely to be less common this year.” Smith cited a report that monarchs occupied only 1.65 acres of Mexican
Students, after being made aware of the research that supports the policy, did not swear off laptops completely. “I’d credit the research and try [taking notes] without a laptop,” said Noam Afek, a freshman studying pre-neuroscience and cognitive science. “If I found out I do better with it, I’d still use it.” Although Nassar acknowledged that the change might be difficult at first, she believes that “the extra time spent taking notes will be
mitigated by less studying time.” Nassar said only more research on the topic would change her mind about her laptop and tablet policy.

forest last winter, the third straight year of steep declines in their overwintering areas. The largest area recorded was 45 acres in 1996, Smith wrote. “A number of factors have contributed to the decline of the monarch population in recent years,” Smith wrote on the MDC website. “Unusually hot weather in the spring of 2012, unusually cold weather last spring and the loss of habitat throughout the Great Plains have combined to create hardships for the insects.” He also cited “weedfree farming techniques” as a contributing cause for the decline.

The Center for Food Safety, also a nonprofit, advocates sustainable alternatives to food production.

FERGUSON, Mo. — Police officers began wearing body cameras over the weekend as marchers took to the streets in the most recent protest of a shooting three weeks earlier by a city officer that left an unarmed teenager dead. Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson said his department was given about 50 body cameras by two companies, Safety Visions and Digital Ally, about a week earlier. The companies donated the body cameras after the fatal shooting on Aug. 9 of Michael Brown Jr. by Ferguson officer Darren Wilson. Company representatives were at the police department on Saturday training officers to use the devices, which attach to uniforms and record video and audio. Some members of the police department have been specially trained on the devices’ use. The cameras are being assigned to squads, and each officer will get one to use, he said. Jackson said the officers had the devices on during the protest march on Saturday and were able to capture video images of crowd members taunting officers. Officers are receptive to the cameras, the chief said. “They are really enjoying them,” he said. “They are trying to get used to using them.” The police department bought three dash-mount cameras but lacks the money to install them, he said. Video recordings are seen as a way to allow judges and juries to follow police-involved events as they unfold, helping to shed light through the often-conflicting or hazy recollections of witnesses.

New Nixon tapes get personal BY KEVIN C. REAGAN The Daily Wildcat
There’s a reason history refers to him as “Tricky Dick.” Since resigning as President of the United States forty years ago, Richard Milhous Nixon has continuously been the subject of great debate. In between the admirable achievement of reopening communications with China and the shameful scandal of the Watergate cover-up, historians have yet to come to a consensus on how to judge the 37th President. Nixon’s former aide, Frank Gannon, has added to the complexity of Nixon’s legacy with the release of 30 hours of interviews he conducted with his former boss in 1983. These tapes have been gathering dust in the University of Georgia archives for the last three decades and were released publicly this past August. The interviews cover a broad range of subjects in Nixon’s life. From plucking chickens in Arizona to hunting down Communists in Hollywood, Nixon is openly candid about his experiences throughout the interview. Below are a series of quotes taken from various sections of these interviews that illustrate the many sides of this multi-faceted figure: “The difficulty is that when a

Football fan takes tailgating to new level

SENIOR THEATER MAJOR and former Wilbur Wildcat Robbie Dema poses for a photo next to a UA helmet while tailgating on the UA Mall before Friday’s game against the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The helmet was built by local engineer Rafael Lopez, who’s been tailgating at UA football games for thirteen years.
BY CRISTIEN KEEME-SAYRE The Daily Wildcat
Rafael Lopez has been tailgating at the UA for thirteen years. Lately, he has been receiving much attention from other tailgaters due to his engineering skills. This past year, Lopez reconstructed a haul trailer into a giant, UA-themed football helmet. On both sides of the helmet, spectators can see the familiar face of Wilbur Wildcat. Lopez may not be able to show off his creation for much of this football season, as he will soon be leaving Arizona to work on engineering projects in Spain, Egypt, Germany and Portugal. The Daily Wildcat finds out more about how Lopez’s school spirit led to this eye-catching piece of fandom.
What is it that keeps you coming back every year? The game environment is nice, and everyone is really friendly. All the games are like that, just a good environment. [ASU] games are the only ones not like that. Are there any traditions that you enjoy when it comes to tailgating? Yes, I like it when the cheerleaders and the band come out to the tailgate before the game. I like that very much. It creates a nice environment and atmosphere, and everyone here gets really into it.

more opportunities available to them in government, but warns women to not expect any special treatment when they get to the top. “This idea that Communists are all working stiffs or minorities and the rest is fatuous nonsense.” — A great portion of these
tapes dwells on Nixon’s history with the House Un-American Activities Committee while serving in Congress. He harbors some regret at not being able to address Communist espionage during his time in the White House, as he claims to be too preoccupied
with ending the Vietnam War in an honorable fashion. Though Nixon did help to prosecute Communist infiltrators, he claims to have disagreed with the methods used by Sen. Joseph McCarthy in tracking these potential spies. “I always believe in making the big play, and so I made the big play, and this time it worked.” — Nixon sheds some of his rough exterior when the subject turns to his wife, Patricia. During the interview, Nixon reminisces about when he first met his wife during a rehearsal for a play they were both in, called “The Dark Tower.” Nixon says that his decision to ask her on a date was one of the most impulsive moments of his life, as he was a young man who always considered the consequences of an action. “The tragedy is that we lost it in the end.” — On the issue of Vietnam, Nixon concedes to Gannon that the cost of the United States’ involvement in the conflict was enormous, but worth the effort. Though South Vietnam would fall to Communist rule in 1975, Nixon stands by the initial decision of trying to prevent such a takeover.

‘Frank’ teeters with humor and tragedy BY ALEX GUYTON
The Daily Wildcat
Anchored by Domhnall Gleeson and Michael Fassbender’s performances, “Frank” operates with an offbeat humor that belies its more serious issues. This is a band of misfits unlike any you’ve seen before. As he lives and works in the suppressing world of numbercrunching cubicles, Jon (Gleeson) is constantly trying to think up the lyrics to the song that will finally get him going. At home, he helplessly labors away at his keyboard in his paltry bedroom studio, unable to produce anything. His fortunes change when the keyboardist of a touring band, Soronprfbs (don’t worry, no one in the band knows how to pronounce it, either), tries to drown himself. The band needs to fill the position, and Jon is beyond ecstatic at the opportunity. Soronprfbs consists of members as eclectic and outlandish as the name, and it is these characters who provide the film with so much of its odd charm. Don (Scoot McNairy), the band’s manager, has a mannequin fetish; Nana (Carla Azar), the band’s drummer, never says a word; Baraque (François Civil) is the guitar player who inexplicably mean things aren’t over the top. only speaks French; and the The bizarre personalities of the perpetually abrasive Clara band members are all-the-more (Maggie Gyllenhaal), who may exaggerated as the audience or may not be in love with watches from Jon’s perspective.

becomes serious, and the quirks that made us laugh must be confronted with blatant honesty. It seems that everyone in the band, at one time or another, was in a mental ward. Why did that first keyboardist try to kill himself? Why does Frank wear that ridiculous thing over his face? As we’ll see, there’s no catchall answer, as there usually never is. Frank wasn’t horribly disfigured in a fire like some movie monster or bullied as a kid; there’s nothing you can point to in his past and say, “Aha! Problem solved.” He’s just sick. He is a charismatic entertainer who harbors something dark inside, yet it’s readily apparent on the surface that all’s not well. With the recent death of Robin Williams, “Frank” rings discomfortingly true. If you’re willing to join up with Frank and the band, you’ll have a good time, but don’t be surprised if you come away with something that lingers with you. “Frank” is currently playing at The Loft Cinema.

DACA reform not good enough BY ALEX DEVOID
The Daily Wildcat
n June, President Barack Obama promised more unilateral action “to fix as much of our immigration system as [he could] on [his] own, without Congress.” His last immigration-related executive order, issued in 2012, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, granted DREAMers — or individuals who meet the requirements of the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act — a temporary two-year relief from deportation and work permission, and some believe his next step will be to expand DACA to include more of the undocumented population, such as parents of DACA recipients. It’s all well and good that Obama can hand out executive orders, but it’s not enough. The U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services’ website clarifies, “deferred action does not provide lawful status.” The website further explains that the government simply chooses not to prosecute those who qualify. To normalize deferred action as a solution in lieu of actual immigration reform creates a group stuck in status-purgatory with limited access to necessary resources. That’s not to say that expanding deferred action would be bad. According to Brookings, DACA alone benefits hundreds of thousands of people. Legal work permission and safety from deportation mean that they can come out from the shadows and live without fear. This is essential, especially in Arizona where police are mandated by state legislation — Senate Bill 1070 — to call border patrol if they believe someone to be without legal immigration status. Expanding deferred action to include more of the undocumented population would mean more people would not have to worry about being detained and separated from their families as a result of a traffic stop. Still, we cannot ignore that deferred action is like a Band-Aid for a broken U.S. immigration system. Deferred action is not sustainable. According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, DACA requires qualified individuals to renew their deferred action every two years, and the application fee is more than $450. Members of Scholarships A-Z, an organization that advocates for equal access to education “regardless of immigration status,” explain that it can be very expensive for low-income families or families who have multiple children to apply. If DACA were simply expanded to include parents, it would be even more expensive for families, and such an expensive financial investment does not offer any long-term reward. Larger families could spend thousands of dollars applying only to have their deferred action status discontinued by Obama’s successor. Deferred action is also inconsistent. DACA recipients can work, but, in Arizona, they cannot drive. Governor Jan Brewer issued her own executive order banning licenses for DACA recipients. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the ban on constitutional grounds, but Brewer continues to fight it. In the meantime, Arizona DACA recipients still can’t drive, while their neighbors to the east and west in New Mexico and California are allowed driver’s licenses. Access to education for DACA students also varies. In Arizona, Proposition 300 bans those who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents, including DACA students, from receiving in-state tuition and state-funded financial aid, while in California and New Mexico, they are eligible for both. Thanks to Scholarships A-Z, DACA students can pay in-state tuition at Pima Community College. Nevertheless, DACA students who have lived in Arizona for more than ten years cannot afford to attend the UA because they are treated as out-ofstate students by an inconsistent and unfair system. Deferred action is too minimal to be a solution. It creates a group of people with limited access to resources resulting in constrained upward social-mobility. Obama should not have to even consider it. We should push our representatives to pass holistic, compassionate immigration reform instead. — Alex Devoid is a graduate student studying journalism & Latin American studies. Follow him @DevoidAlex

POLICE BEAT BY ADRIANA ESPINOSA The Daily Wildcat
A Song of Vice and Fire
A non-UA affiliated man was arrested on charges of criminal damage, reckless burning and possession of drug paraphernalia. A University of Arizona Police Department officer was performing routine checks of the bike racks north of the Coronado Residence Hall when he noticed a man wearing all black kneeling down in front of flames on the traffic island at the intersection of North Euclid Avenue and East Fifth Street. According to the UAPD officer, the man was yelling and holding his hands over the fire, mimicking the flames. The officer then called the UAPD communications unit to see if any other officer in the area could respond. As he was doing so, he saw a white car pull up to the man who quickly got in the car and fled the scene. As the officer tried to track the car down to pull it over, he lost it when the man fled the car and started walking on campus. The officer eventually found the man and pulled him aside to speak with him. The officer immediately read the man his Miranda Rights, and the man quickly said that he wanted an attorney. The man was arrested, and the UAPD officer searched his belongings to make sure there was nothing that could cause harm to others in his possession. While searching the man’s belongings, the officer found a pill bottle with a metal smoking pipe that was used to smoke marijuana. The man was arrested on charges of reckless burning and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Swiper, no swiping!
A non-UA affiliated man was caught shoplifting from the A-Store at Main Gate and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. At approximately 4:50 p.m., a UAPD officer was dispatched to the A-Store after members of the loss prevention staff saw a man stealing a blue UA wallet, two lanyards and a money clip. According to the employees of the loss prevention staff, they approached the man and gave him the chance to turn in what he had taken, but the man denied taking anything. They then told him that they were going to get the UAPD involved if he did not give back the stolen items. He then replied, “do what you need to do; I didn’t take anything. I am in a hurry.” After the man fled the scene, a UAPD officer stopped the vehicle he was in for a traffic stop. The officer told him to step out of the car, and the man complied. The man said that he was trying on clothes in the store and must have forgotten that he put the wallet in his pocket. While he denied stealing anything else, the officer found a money clip, which the man said he did not remember taking. The officer placed the man under arrest and found a pouch with what appeared to be heroin residue in his car. However, the man denied using it for heroin. After a follow-up with the loss prevention staff, it appeared that the man did in fact steal a wallet, a money clip and the lanyards. The man was charged with shoplifting and possession of drug paraphernalia, cited and released.

DOS provides a diversion program for first time misdemeanor cases for the court, meaning the DOS will assign your sanctions. These can include a fee, community service hours, and an alcohol education class. Also, if you are under 21, the Dean’s Office will inform your parents of your violation through the Parental Notification Law of 1998. If you fail to complete your diversion, the Dean’s Office will place a hold on your record, preventing you from registering for classes, dropping/adding classes, receiving grades or graduating, and then your case is referred back to the court system for further prosecution. Diversion through the DOS is a one-time deal and you will have to go to court for any additional violations occurring on campus. That means double sanctions as you will still be sanctioned at UA for a Student Code of Conduct violation.

If you’re under 21 and caught with alcohol in a residence hall, you will likely be sanctioned by a community director to complete an alcohol education class for violating Residence Hall Community Standards and the UA Code of Conduct. A notification letter will be sent to your parents, and you will be placed on Deferred Eviction. If you accrue additional violations, you can be evicted from your residence hall (yet you still have to pay the rent for the remainder of the semester). If you miss your sanction deadline, Residence Life will refer your case to the Dean of Students Office for additional sanctioning. Whether in the residence hall or anywhere else on campus, if it’s determined that you need medical assistance based upon excessive alcohol consumption, paramedics are called to assess the situation and possibly transport you to University Medical Center (where you incur additional medical costs). You can view the Student Code of Conduct and other FAQ’s at the Dean of Student’s website at www.deanofstudents.arizona.edu. The Residence Life Community Living Guide, which include all Community Standards, can be found at www.life.arizona.edu (search for “policies and procedures”).

Solomon exited the game midway through the fourth quarter with the following stat line: 25-44 passing attempts, 425 passing yards, four passing touchdowns, 50 rushing yards on eight carries and 50,103 jaws wide open. Not only did he set the freshman single-game passing yards record, he engineered the offense that obliterated the program’s single-game total offensive yards record that was set in 1969 against New Mexico. The previous record was 691 total offensive yards, and Solomon orchestrated the new record of 787 total offensive yards on Friday. Seemingly, one play led to another and that play led to a score. And it’s just the first game of the season. As the always-wise rapper Fabolous once said in his song “Diamonds,” “Now that’s what the fuck I call a chain reaction.” In this explosive situation, there’s little doubt that Fabolous’ lyrics can be a forewarning for what the Pac-12 is looking to go against this

season. Not only can the Wildcats run the ball, they can pass with the best in the nation. Four of Arizona’s seven touchdowns came on the heels of plays of at least 39 yards, with the longest coming on a 92-yard touchdown reception from redshirt senior wide receiver Austin Hill. For the rest of the season, even if Arizona is only half as prolific as it was against UNLV, it
Arizona volleyball sweeps tournament BY Evan rosenfeld
The Daily Wildcat
The 2014 Arizona volleyball season kicked off with a bang as the Wildcats overthrew South Dakota, Wisconsin-Green Bay and Kansas State to sweep the Green Bay Tournament and begin the year 3-0. Senior outside hitter Madi Kingdon was named the tournament MVP and Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week after recording two 20-plus-kill matches, two double-doubles and 64 kills on 144 swings (.361 hitting percentage) over the weekend. Furthermore, Kingdon amassed 33 digs, eight blocks, four service aces and two assists. “I think we played extremely well,” Kingdon said. “Of course, there are always kinks to be worked out, but that being said, I think we showed a good fight.” Fellow teammates Ronni Lewis and Penina
would still average just under 400 total yards per game. The scariest part about that is an average of 400 yards of total offense per game would be incredibly low for a Rich Rodriguezcoached team. Last year’s team averaged just over 458 total yards of offense per game, and, apart from the departure of star running back Ka’Deem Carey, this offense is much more complete at the skill
positions. Leading the way amongst the offensive skill groups is a deep, varied group of receivers. Just against UNLV, 10 different players caught a pass. However, that’s not even the most telling sign that the offense will continue to be explosive. The play calling on Friday seemed eerily similar to something that would’ve been seen on last season’s run-heavy team, but generated significantly different results in the passing game. The majority of the credit for that positive change can be attributed to solid reads from Solomon in his first career start. Despite several overthrown deep balls early, he rebounded nicely from that point on and, specifically, in the third quarter. Solomon was 13-25 for 243 passing yards at the half and a tad bit inconsistent on some throws. However, he rebounded after the half and was 11-16 for 167 passing yards in the third quarter alone. He only had one passing touchdown in the third quarter but was responsible for leading Arizona on four scoring drives in the quarter. To make matters even better, he did this all without committing a turnover of any capacity. While it’s only the first game of the season, I can say with certainty that there’s a new sheriff in town, and his name is Anu.

Snuka also earned spots on the all-tournament team. Lewis, a senior libero, and Snuka, a sophomore setter, proved to be instrumental in Arizona’s victories against South Dakota and Green Bay. Snuka recorded three double-doubles in as many games after compiling 40 assists and a team-leading 18 digs against South Dakota, 36 assists and 13 digs against Green Bay and 40 assists and 14 digs in the final match against Kansas State.

QUOTE TO NOTE
Back-to-back weekday games is irregular and a rarity for Arizona football. The shortened week has decreased practice, film and recovery time. Traditionally, collegiate football weeks are planned out from Saturday to Saturday, but with this week being shortened, head coach Rich Rodriguez will have to change up the pace. The Wildcats haven’t played backto-back games in at least a decade, and it will be a tough feat traveling on the road. After the game against UNLV, Rodriguez said the shortened week has caused him to move up his traditional Monday routine up to Saturday to prepare for Thursday’s game against the University of Texas at San Antonio.

NUMBER OF THE DAY
The annual Arizona men’s basketball RedBlue instra-squad scrimmage takes place in 46 days on October 18 in McKale Center. The Red-Blue game will be the first chance to see the 2014-15 Arizona roster in action before the regular season begins.

Houston last week, the Wildcats must prepare for a team that brings one of the most experienced rosters in the country. “They are going to have a big crowd and maybe sell out,” Rodriguez said. “It will be a tough environment, and we are going to practice for crowd noise.” This will be the first time that UTSA will be welcoming a Pac-12 opponent to the Alamodome. It will also be an unfamiliar trip for the Wildcats, who have not ventured into Texas since the turn of the millennium. Several Arizona players have ties to the Lone Star State, including tight end Josh Kern, wide receiver Cayleb Jones and quarterback Connor Brewer.
Accumulating the Yards
Arizona’s nation-leading 787 yards of total offense last week is a feat more common under Rodriguez. In program history, the UA has accumulated 600 yards of total offense on nine occasions, five of those in the past two-plus seasons
under Rodriguez. “Obviously, a game like that is a pretty special week,” UA offensive lineman Mickey Baucus said. “If we go in there this week and execute and do what we are capable of doing, we should be able to get big numbers and yards all season long. If we go out there and try to play the perfect game, then big games like that should be more to come.” Redshirt freshman quarterback Anu Solomon had a lot to do with the explosive offense, racking up 425 passing yards and four passing touchdowns. “Anu did a great job moving the ball around this last week, and having all of these options for him will make it a lot easier for him being a first-time starter,” wide receiver Nate Phillips said.
Kickin’ it Old School
Not since the mid-2000s has Arizona had a reliable kicker in Nick Folk, currently playing for the New York Jets. Redshirt junior kicker Casey Skowron may be the answer.
In Friday’s game against UNLV, Skowron was 3-for-4 in field goal attempts, including a career-long 49yard make. He also converted seven extra point attempts. Skowron was also named Special Teams Player of the Week by the Arizona coaching staff.
Wood to play Defensive End Recruited to play tight end, freshman Trevor Wood will practice receive reps at defensive end, with defensive lineman Reggie Gilbert being out. Listed at 6-foot-5, Wood brings a big presence to the defense. “We recruited him mostly as a tight end because that was where our needs were, but now we need d-ends,” Rodriguez said. “Most of his individual work has been at tight end, but this week it will be at d-end.”

Basketball notes: Red-Blue game sells out tickets in 90 minutes BY JAMES KELLEY The Daily Wildcat
This weekend, Arizona men’s basketball fans snatched up tickets for the Wildcats’ annual McDonald’s Red-Blue intra-squad scrimmage in 90 minutes. On Saturday, tickets for the RedBlue Game went on sale at 10 a.m. and sold out in an hour and a half. It was the third year in a row that the Wildcats sold out the scrimmage. Due to $30 million renovations of McKale Center, capacity is limited to about 10,000 students rather than the 14,545 of last year. Student reservations will be available on Oct. 12 for ZonaZoo members with red passes. The student section capacity will be 500. The Red-Blue Game will be on Oct. 18. The Red-Blue game features a slam dunk contest and intra-squad scrimmage. “We get more people at our Red-Blue game than I think any conference opponent gets for their biggest games,” said head coach Sean Miller at last year’s Red-Blue Game. The highest road attendance the Wildcats played in 2013-14, when they were No. 1 for eight weeks, was 14,266 students at Utah. With the capacity capped at around 10,000 students, the Wildcats will still top many Pac-12 schools’ regular season games. Last season, UCLA’s attendance for its home game against Oakland was 4,771 students, USC only had 2,316 people go to its West Alabama home game and Washington State’s attendance for its home date with the Trojans was 2,113 students.
Two former Wildcats from different eras will be teaming up in Houston. On Sunday, the Sacramento Kings traded former UA guard Jason Terry to the Houston Rockets. Terry

joins former Arizona guard Nick Johnson in Houston’s backcourt. Terry will make $5.4 million this season. The Rockets signed Johnson, whom they selected with the 42nd overall pick in the NBA Draft, to a guaranteed three-year deal. Terry played at Arizona from 1995-96 to 1998-99 and Johnson from 2011-12 to 2013-14. Terry won National Player of the Year in 1999 and NBA Sixth Man of the Year in 2009. Johnson’s 2013-14 Arizona teammate and fellow 2014 draftee Aaron Gordon visited Tucson this weekend and was featured on the Jumbotron during the football team’s 58-13 win over UNLV. The Orlando Magic selected Gordon with the fourth pick.
Meanwhile, Kyryl Natyazhko, another former teammate of Johnson’s, is competing at the FIBA World Cup for the Ukraine. Natyazhko played at Arizona from 2009-10 to 2011-12. Natyazhko is averaging four points with 3.5 rebounds in 30 total minutes of action. The Ukrainians opened with a 72-62 win over the Dominican Republic but lost 81-76 to Finland in their second game. They face Team USA on Thursday in the final game of group play.
Arizona commit Justin Simon recently announced he will transfer to Brewster Academy in New Hampshire to prepare for the UA. Simon is from Temecula, Calif., and is a senior in high school.
“My family and I thought it was a great idea to get away for my senior year to become more independent and be challenged as a basketball player and a young man,” Simon said to the Riverside Press-Enterprise, “[and] to develop in practice and game situations at a level I never had before.” Fellow Arizona commit Allonzo Trier of Rockville, Md., also transferred for his senior year to Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nev. Arizona freshman forward Craig Victor, junior forward Brandon Ashley and Johnson went to Findlay Prep.
