Members of the Grandview Masonic Lodge #23 lead the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day March on Monday to honor the civil rights leader of the 1960s. Marchers held signs and posters honoring Dr. King as they walked from the UA Mall east along Broadway Boulevard to Reid Park.
UA students and local organizations walk together, remember Dr. King’s message and life
By Jacob Moeller Arizona Daily Wildcat Monday marked the 25th anniversary of the annual MLK Day March from the UA campus to Reid Park. “I would like to welcome everyone coming out to march with us today in the legacy, in the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,” said Maria Moore, interim program director for UA African American Student Affairs. The cold weather and possibility of rain did not stop the participants from making the walk. “We must seize the moment,” said Clarence Boykins, who runs the Tucson Celebration Committee for the holiday and has conducted the march in each of
its 25 years. “If we choose to not use it, then we will truly lose it.” The crowd stretched from the Flandrau Science Center and Planetarium to Campbell Avenue and the participants held signs in both English and Spanish. The three-mile trek was filled with smiling faces, friendly conversation and inspired singing. “Everywhere we go, people want to know who we are, so we tell them,” sang one group of marchers in a “Remember The Titans”-like tune. “We’re marching for our freedom and an education.” At the end of the march, the crowd was welcomed by the rhythmic sound of drums and the smell of catfish, kettle corn and hot dogs at Reid Park.
Carl Bedford, the master of ceremonies, said, “We’re really happy that you’re here. We’re here to have a great time and we invite you to join us in that.” Bedford welcomed to the stage 20-year-old Justin Moore to sing the national anthem. Moore inspired quite a response from the growing audience. “It was definitely a blessing to be able to share what God has blessed me with, with everyone else,” Moore said. “This day means a lot. It is awesome to celebrate a man who has given so much to all of us.” A majority of the participants were students and student organizations. Randy Baires, an education senior and the president of the Omega Delta
Phi fraternity, explained, “We’re a multicultural organization, one of the brothers brought it up and everyone got on board.” Pima County Board of Supervisors Chairman Richard Elias spoke about the importance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at the march. “I think it’s a great time for all of us to get out and bring consciousness to the issue of civil rights and to energize us to do the right things in our communities,” he said. Boykins took time to remind his attentive audience that there is more to be done. “Our job is not through, the work is not done,” he said. “Enjoy the day, we’ll see you back here next year, same time, same place.”
Immigration reform group hosts forum By Matt Lewis Arizona Daily Wildcat Activists in the Reform Immigration For America organization say 2010 is a promising year to see some real change in immigration legislation. Several students and one UA professor took the first step Friday by having a town hall-type forum. In order to pass a reform bill, the Reform Immigration For America campaign needs 279 votes, including President Obama’s. The campaign, an interfaith effort pushing for comprehensive immigration reform, has Rep. Raúl Grijalva, D-Ariz., on board. Originally a grassroots effort, the campaign now brings together more than 600 groups nationwide. Last week marked the kick-off of their nation-wide campaign to get policy makers and the public to pay attention to issues surrounding immigration reform. “Any major shift in policy starts with grass movements like this,” said Ramsey Coronado, a junior studying

environmental hydrology and water resource who attended the event. The issue is personal for Coronado because he has family members who are undocumented immigrants. A panelist of five representatives
from the business, religious, education and political communities spent about two hours discussing comprehensive immigration reform. More than 100 people attended the event, organized by several UA
students. “I am very excited to be a part of this growing movement at such a crucial time for the reform,” said Miguel Angel Sanchez, an applied mathematics graduate student and Reform Immigration For America campaign volunteer. “We are going to form a powerful movement in this country one person at a time.” Among the panelists was UA sociology professor Celestino Fernandez. Fernandez talked about why he thinks the immigration system is completely broken as it relates to education. He gave the example of Plyler vs. Doe, a court case in Texas involving undocumented immigrants. The case made it to the Supreme Court, and it was ruled that undocumented children are entitled to a free education like any other child. “That law still stands today, but there are many individuals in many states in many school districts that would challenge that law along the way,” Fernandez said. “The question I would pose to you is: to whose benefit would
we implement such a law? It wouldn’t be to the benefit of the United States.” Fernandez added that states do not have the same restrictions when it comes to granting undocumented immigrants residency status and admission to state colleges. In Arizona, undocumented immigrant students can be admitted to college, but they cannot receive any financial aid from the state. The other panelists talked about a range of topics including the financial impact of immigrants, family reunification, border security, border infrastructure and a humane approach to what’s happening along the border. Coronado said the event “provided a pretty good perspective from different sides of the community.” Coronado said he thinks it is feasible that Congress and the president can come up with a good approach to reform, but knows the road will be difficult. “Politically speaking, on both sides of the aisle, regardless of where you stand IMMIGRATION, page 5

New question: What is your social networking site of choice? Nahid Ilyas Chemistry graduate student What year are you in school? I’m a grad student, second year. That’s why I’m here today. We don’t get the national holiday as a holiday. Really? You don’t get the holiday off? Yeah. This is my lunch break. I was here Saturday and Sunday until midnight. You have to go to school every day of the week? No, but basically we don’t have days as weekends. Sometimes Wednesday and Thursday is my weekend. So, what class did you just come from? Oh, we don’t have classes either. We do research. (laughs) There are designated times to do research? It depends, but in my group, it’s up to me. So, I work my own hours. Okay. So, you’re like a group leader? No. Basically, you have a project that you have to do.… and you do some experiments. So, you can choose to come at seven in the morning and leave at four, or you can choose to come at two in the afternoon and leave at midnight. What’re you researching? (laughs) Hold on. Let me make it something that people can understand. Solar cells. What are solar cells? Be as complicated as needed. Basically, we’re doing fundamental work. These other groups build the solar cells, and we do fundamental work that actually supports their work. So, we look at the physics of how it works at a molecular level. And, other people, who actually build the device, can use that information. Like engineers. And, we’re green. We want to promote alternative energy. If you can make molecules produce energy, that is renewable. OK. That- I’m- … You’re smarter than me. — Katie Gault

Scientists turn stem cells into environmentally-friendly pork LONDON — Call it pork in a petri dish - a technique to turn pig stem cells into strips of meat that scientists say could one day offer a green alternative to raising livestock, help alleviate world hunger and save some pigs their bacon. Dutch scientists have been growing pork in the laboratory since 2006, and while they admit they haven’t gotten the texture quite right or even tasted the engineered meat, they say the technology promises to have widespread implications for our food supply.
“If we took the stem cells from one pig and multiplied it by a factor of a million, we would need one million fewer pigs to get the same amount of meat,”said Mark Post, a biologist at Maastricht University involved in the InVitro Meat Consortium, a network of publicly funded Dutch research institutions that is carrying out the experiments. Post describes the texture of the meat as sort of like scallop, firm but a little squishy and moist. That’s because the lab meat has less protein content than

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — James Cameron may get to proclaim himself king of the distant moon Pandora at the Academy Awards. Cameron, who borrowed Leonardo DiCaprio’s line from “Titanic” and declared himself “king of the world”when that film sailed to Oscar glory 12 years ago, positioned Jake Sully’s himself for a repeat with his GoldNa’vi avatar en Globe wins Sunday for the sci-fi blockbuster“Avatar.” The tale of big, blue aliens in conflict with rapacious humans on Pandora earned the Globes for best drama and director, prizes that also preceded the Oscar run of“Titanic.” “This is a trip,” said Cameron, recalling that as “Titanic” was becoming a box-office and Oscar juggernaut, he had thought to himself,“Enjoy this ride, it ain’t never going to happen again.” Yet“Avatar”has soared to a worldwide box office of $1.6 billion, second only to“Titanic”at $1.8 billion, and could end up surpassing his 1997 smash about the doomed luxury liner. — The Associated Press

New grant funds social networking study By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Two UA professors are part of a new $1.1 million federal grant project to research practical and defense applications of social networking. For most, social networking seems relatively new and rather frivolous, with social networking sites used to strengthen preexisting social ties as much as, if not more than, to forge completely new ones. Brint Milward, director of the UA School of Government and Public Policy, and Ron Breiger, a UA sociology professor, are working on the project with faculty from the University of Maryland and State University of New York, Albany. The grant covers research on covert and violent international networks from public records, Milward said. Social networking reaches far past just the use of Facebook, Twitter, MySpace or LinkedIn: it is a pattern in which humans have been participating for centuries. It’s the interactions of people, utilizing trust and reciprocity to provide advantages for those within them. “Facebook is just the application of a social network,” said Keith Provan, a UA professor of management and organizations. This research is complementary to what the dozens of social network analysts have been doing on the UA campus for the last couple of years, spreading through departments such as anthropology, computer science, political science and sociology. The placement of remnants of ceramics and obsidian volcanic glass shows that 500 years
much like Facebook invites or friends lists would provide insight into our social interaction. Breiger, Milward and others are taking research like this and studying just how purposeful human participation in social networks is today. “Human beings are relational,” Breiger said.“The whole interest in social networks is that they are networks about the context in which they are embedded.” Breiger started working on social networking analysis in the 1970s and has studied the strength of weak ties, a theory which promotes moving beyond a closed social network in order to gain new knowledge through acquaintances, as well as how faceto-face interaction bolstered by humor can strengthen bonds within an existing social network. All of these endeavors have given Milward and Breiger perspective on how to apply human patterns of networking to covert operations today. Joseph Galaskiewicz, a UA sociology professor, is admittedly not a Facebook user, but notes that a modification of it could help the future of social networking. Galaskiewicz believes a localized Facebook-type system could support student retention by providing a closed network, as well as help researchers understand how a new generation socializes in a technology-driven world in a specific case study. “There are mixed forms of faceto-face versus technologically mediated (contact) … but there’s a personal element you are never going to replace,”
Milward said. Provan noted that the evolution of social networking will take place on both an interpersonal and organizational level, with local governments taking cues from international models in Japan and the Netherlands. Provan said he believes that the evolution of social networking is dependent upon the research that people like the group of UA professors are doing to help everyone understand just what social networking can do.
Facebook is just the application of a social network.”

Dos and Don’ts of Social Networks: • Do use them to keep in touch with old friends, business connections, etc. • Do use them to gain access to new information. • Do utilize close contacts and weaker ones for new knowledge. • Don’t rely on them to provide all your information. • Don’t post too much online. Once it’s out there, it stays out there. • Don’t be too trusting. Always have a critical eye.

invitation-only Jan. 27 event in San Francisco. But it comes amid speculation that Apple is close to unveiling a tablet-style touch-screen computer that is bigger than an iPhone but smaller than a standard laptop. Tablets are one-piece
computers with big screens and no keyboards. Such devices have been around since the early 1990s, but haven’t seen much success in the mainstream. An Apple spokesman declined to provide more details on its plans Monday afternoon.

Gilbert Arenas lives up to his number
ilbert Arenas spent his time at the UA dazzling fans and draining buckets. He entered the league as a second-round draft pick but soon became a top player in the NBA. Just as he cooked up an astonishing $111 million contract, repeated injuries threatened his status as a premier NBA player. Dan Sotelo Now, the ever-jovial Agent Zero’s Columnist unrestrained humor has placed his career and marketability in jeopardy after he and a teammate pulled guns on each other in the team locker room on Dec. 21. Arenas attributed his mistake to a “misguided effort to play a joke,” but there’s little that he can laugh about now. On Friday, Arenas pleaded guilty to federal gun charges. He remains free until his March 26 sentencing. His plea deal will offer from six to 12 months of jail time, much less than the possible maximum of five years. The details regarding a locker room dispute between Arenas and teammate Javaris Crittenton trickled in, transforming the incident from a case of bad judgment to a potentially lethal situation. Arenas originally claimed he had brought unloaded guns into the locker room to keep them away from his children. The flimsy excuse quickly fell apart when it was revealed that the confrontation stemmed from a gambling dispute between Arenas and Crittenton. The incident itself lacks any humor, but the excuses and explanations are rife with comedy. Not only was Arenas’ humor misguided, but he also absolutely botched the delivery. Arenas started off his comedy routine by playfully suggesting that he would blow up Crittenton’s car, while Crittenton alluded to shooting Arenas in his knee, which has already endured three operations. There’s nothing like destruction of private property or career-ending assault to lighten the mood between two jokesters. Having already taken such a negative tone, the dispute was a fire waiting for Agent Zero Common Sense to throw on the gasoline. This prolonged pissing contest makes Arenas’ decision even more dangerous. Arenas made a conscious decision to bring multiple handguns to the locker room and elevate the situation from heated trash talk to legitimate violence. What he forgot to do is tell Crittenton that his guns were not loaded. According to two witnesses, Crittenton allegedly loaded his gun and placed a bullet in the chamber when confronting Arenas. All kidding aside, Arenas could’ve been killed by his own egotistical brand of everybody-loves-me humor. Even though Arenas was in a joking state of mind, to teammate Crittenton, the introduction of firearms was no laughing matter. The comedic tragedy, if it can be called that, of this incident is the classic falling from grace of the well-liked professional athlete. In expedient Tiger Woods fashion, Adidas dropped Arenas from their seven-year endorsement agreement, causing Arenas to lose an estimated $50 million. The Washington Wizards have already removed all Arenas merchandise from their stores as well as a giant Arenas banner that adorned their stadium. In all likelihood, especially with jail time, Arenas will be released by Washington and lose most of his mega-contract. Arenas’ stunning ignorance has framed him as the caricature of irresponsible gun owners, a far cry from his previous image. His public persona is one of genuine coolness; a spectacular athlete, physically dominant but with the lighthearted attitude of a teenager. For a man so well-liked and admired, his stupidity becomes almost shocking. It’s not that people envisioned him a genius, but they didn’t think he was that stupid. To think guns have a part in any joke is bad enough, but to actually act on that thought is beyond reproach. What this incident shows is that anybody, no matter how popular or successful, can make a mistake. When that mistake involves the improper use of guns, mere punishment becomes an incredibly lucky alternative to the accidental death of a teammate or friend. Arenas still has a chance to redeem himself, both on and off the court, but he should never forget how close he was to losing everything – just one bullet away. — Dan Sotelo is a political science senior.

MAILBAG Return to the front yard!
I can’t stand to see the majority of college-age youth in the United States spend their time shooting heroin in their back yards. That is, metaphorically speaking. As tuition rises, college acceptance rates drop, and the state continues to rape the universities, students seem to just be lying there and taking it. What happened to rationality and dignity in today’s society? Will we not directly and relentlessly confront those who impede on our education? In his essay “Open Letter to the Youth of Our Nation,” Hunter Thompson prophetically advises us:“I warn you, if you don’t start now it will be too late, and the blame for the end of the world will be laid at your feet. Heed my warning, oh depraved and profligate youth; I say awake, awake, awake!” Indeed, immediate action is necessary. Write, speak, debate, protest and organize! Make your uneasiness known to our political leaders. Use your persuasiveness, rational arguments and all of the skills you can contribute. After you wake up, get the needle out of your arm, run through the house, burst through the door and join the picket line out front. Gregory Gonzales
National student group reacts to editorial
An editorial in the Jan. 13 edition of the Daily Wildcat argued against legislation that would begin to enable legal self-defense on Arizona college campuses. The editorial recycled many of the debunked, primarily emotional arguments propagated by anti-gun groups like the Brady Campaign without acknowledging the factual realities of campus gun control policies. The editorial argues a college campus is“no place for a deadly weapon.” It is important to understand two facts about this argument. First:“deadly weapons” are already allowed on campus, albeit with hefty restrictions. Second: despite the best intentions of the administration, they cannot regulate crime out of existence. Any criminal can choose to bring a“deadly weapon” onto an Arizona campus at will. Far from keeping weapons off
campus, current restrictions more accurately restrict college campuses to a place where legally concealed weapons may never be used to prevent violent crimes. The editorial claims legal weapons“will create fear”far greater than the fear of a“hypothetical criminal.”If this were true, then students would never leave the“safety”of campus boundaries. Nationally, about 1 percent of the population has a concealed handgun license (or equivalent permit). Assuming the Arizona rate is similar, then one in every hundred people you pass off campus is carrying a “deadly weapon,” and yet students do not fear a trip to the movies, grocery store or local mall. Furthermore, all evidence suggests that students who have actually experienced campus life with legal Concealed Carry Weapons feel safer, not frightened. That’s why the Associated Students of Colorado State University voted 21-3 to pass a resolution in favor of maintaining legal concealed weapons on their campus. It was unelected“educrats,”not the campus community, who chose to mandate a ban. Finally, the editorial argues Concealed Carry Weapons requirements do not provide enough training for professors to adequately“defend the student body,” and “defending students” is the job of campus police. Both of these claims are false. As to the former, not only is the shooting qualification requirement the same for police and permit holders, it is not the job of a permit holder to protect students or other individuals. Concealed Carry Weapons are about self-defense, not becoming a one-man S.W.A.T. team. Concealed Carry Weapons holders are not police. Deterring crime is not the objective of Concealed Carry Weapons; it is a side effect. As to the latter claim, the courts have established that police have no affirmative duty to protect citizens regardless of their knowledge of potential crimes, or even a stated intent to provide protection. Furthermore, the police cannot be everywhere at once. Only potential victims are guaranteed to be present when their life is in danger. I find it hard to believe that disarming the victim prevents crime. Erik Soderstrom Media Liaison, Students for Concealed Carry on Campus

student and institution (and) has led to a culture of entitlement and instant gratification.” Certainly, a university’s primary obligation is to serve its students. And no institution should be deaf to student input and criticism, which could help to reveal flaws within the system. But the purpose of education is not to provide students with what they want, but what they need — an education which, though it might be strenuous and differ considerably from what students believe they want, provides them with well-earned knowledge and reasoning skills. — Ben Harper is a philosophy senior who is both “hip” and “with it.” He can be contacted at

Community service doubles as networking opportunity for club
for the Homeless. Both are dedicated to giving additional aid, food, supplies and shelter to homeless individuals when temperatures dip below 35 degrees. “We wanted to spend Martin Luther King Jr. Day doing a charitable event since it is a national day of service,” said Paul Tumarkin , the International Association of Business Communications president. “It just seemed appropriate and there was a real desire to do it.” The UA Communication Club, a group of UA communication majors and minors, joined the event to increase their participation in volunteering. “We’re trying to do more community service this semester,” said Julie Levin , the newly elected club president. “This event was especially appealing because it also gives us the chance to network with professionals in our field.” Tumarkin said the two organizations working together was beneficial to everyone involved. “I think more than anything what we (International

on the issue, everybody’s in agreement that the immigration system is broken,” said Ruben Reyes, district director for Grijalva. Reyes said the system is broken because there are too many undocumented people in the United States, American businesses hire them and thousands continue to die crossing the border. He fears that if something is not done soon, then reform will get pushed to the backburner like it has in the past. “Now is the time,” Reyes said. “President Obama made a promise that he would entertain immigration (reform) the first year in office. He could not do that for obvious reasons. That’s

Tumarkin hopes that the day of service will soon become an annual occurrence. “If the interest is there like it was this year then we could definitely do that,” she said. Operation Deep Freeze will continue running until April. Donations can be made at the Salvation Army Hospitality House (1021 N. 11th Ave.) and anyone interested in volunteering can inquire for information there.

The communications club joined with the Tucson International Association of Business Communication to assemble comfort kits for the homeless in an effort to support Operation Deep Freeze.
Reyes calls for compromise fine, but we cannot wait for another term. We’ve been waiting for the last six, seven years.” Grijalva’s office, as well as the Campaign to Reform Immigration For America, understands the issue will be heavily contested. “There’s going to be no perfect bill on both sides, and it’s going to be up to both sides to see what they’re willing to compromise,” Reyes said. “What we support is a path to legalization. We’re not saying, ‘Get in line in front
of the people that were there before you.’” The first step toward comprehensive immigration reform, Reyes says, started with a bill introduced by Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill. “These groups are doing a very good job of doing some grass organizing, but once the bill hits the Senate and the House, it’s up to them and their leadership to decide how much they’re willing to compromise or not,” Reyes said.

Man fined for ‘dirty’ words on state truck
HERMITAGE, Pa. — A western Pennsylvania man has been fined $50 for using his finger to write derogatory words on the dirty cab of a Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission truck. Charles J. Vranich, 33, of South Pymatuning Township, pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct last week on a citation filed by Fish Commission Officer Jeffrey Giardina. Vranich wrote the words on the officer’s truck when both happened to be at the same gas station in September. Vranich wasn’t immediately available for comment, but his father, Charles Vranich Sr., said Monday his son wrote“I suck”on Giardina’s truck because his son was upset that the officer made him take an alcohol breath test — which Vranich passed — after boating weeks before. His father said,“It was something that he shouldn’t have done.”
Police: Drunken man in cowboy gear threatens dog
IOWA CITY, Iowa — Iowa City Police Department officers say a drunken man dressed like a cowboy broke into a house and threatened to kill the residents’ dog. Police said 24-year-old Derrick Thomas Alger of Iowa City was arrested early Thursday morning on charges of trespassing, intoxication and carrying a dangerous weapon. Officers said Alger reportedly threatened a cab driver with a handgun shortly after midnight. They say Alger, who was dressed in shorts, boots and a cowboy hat, fled the scene but entered the rear door of a private residence, where he demanded to know who the residents were and threatened their barking dog. Police arrested Alger outside the house and said he had a blood alcohol level several times the legal limit for driving.
Florida man wanting ride to bar calls 911, arrested
OLDSMAR, Fla. — Authorities say a Florida man who called 911 claiming he’d been beaten and shot at was hoping the tale would get him a ride to a bar. Instead, 37-year-old Gregory J. Oras is facing charges of misusing the 911 system and battery of a law enforcement officer. An arrest report says Oras called 911 three times before his arrest early Tuesday in Oldsmar, northwest of Tampa. He told the dispatcher he had a broken nose and bleeding ears, and claimed people were shooting at him. Authorities say he was actually looking for a ride to another bar. The report also says Oras kicked a Pinellas County sheriff’s deputy in the knees and a Taser was used to subdue him. Online records show he is being held at the Pinellas County Jail but don’t indicate whether he has an attorney.
Man steals $50, flees on Wal-mart scooter
UNIONTOWN, Pa. — Police say a Pennsylvania man in a hospital gown stole $50 from his ex-girlfriend at Wal-Mart, then tried to flee on a store-owned motorized shopping scooter. Craig David Jr., 32, of Smithfield, was charged Wednesday with robbery and disorderly conduct. State police Cpl. Chuck Frey says David had just been released from a hospital for injuries in a domestic dispute Jan. 1. Frey says David had been hit with a frying pan and table leg. David was still in a hospital gown Tuesday night when he met an ex-girlfriend who agreed to pay for his prescription medication. Instead, police say he grabbed $50 from her and scooted away. David remained jailed Thursday. He does not have an attorney.
Bank bandit flees after getting yelled at
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Police are seeking a timid wouldbe robber who fled a Springfield bank empty-handed after somebody yelled at him. Sgt. John Delaney says a man wearing dark clothes and sunglasses entered The Bank of Western Massachusetts on Thursday morning and demanded money from a teller. The man said he was armed but never showed a gun. Delaney says another person in the bank yelled at the man to leave — and he did. Delaney says the would-be robber fled out the door without any money, climbed into a getaway car and drove off. Detectives are checking bank security cameras and dusting for fingerprints.
Naked jogger nabbed after run near White House
WASHINGTON — Authorities say a man who took off his clothes and began jogging in near-freezing temperatures near the White House has been taken into custody and hospitalized for a mental evaluation. The man was seen stripping Wednesday around 5 p.m. He left his clothes near the northeast corner of the Ellipse, the green space south of the White House. Secret Service spokesman Darrin Blackford says the run lasted less than a minute before the man was apprehended. The president was at the White House at the time. But Blackford says the man, who left his clothing in a duffel bag, didn’t make any threats. His bag was declared suspicious, but its contents were found to be harmless. Temperatures were around 35 degrees. It wasn’t clear if the jogger would face criminal charges.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – A 36-year-old Wisconsin woman who stripped in front of her children in a drunken attempt to avoid a shoplifting arrest is going to jail. As part of a plea agreement, Julia E. Laack of Sheboygan pleaded no contest to three charges including retail theft. The Sheboygan Press says she was sentenced Thursday to six months in jail. Prosecutors say Laack stole beef jerky and a lighter from a convenience store in October. They say when police went to her home she began screaming at three children and told a teenager the incident was his fault. Laack then stripped to her underwear and told officers they couldn’t arrest her because she would be naked.

Cameron’s ‘Avatar’ wins best drama award at Globes
Angels serve up aces
The Associated Press BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — The Golden Globes gave top honors to James Cameron’s “Avatar,” taking its cue from the film’s celebration of humanity, with other winners ranging from the gritty child-abuse drama “Precious” to freewheeling comedy “The Hangover.” Cameron was the big winner on the movie side, claiming awards for best drama and best director for his science-fiction blockbuster and setting him up for a possible awards sequel to 1997’s “Titanic.” Cameron’s epic about the doomed oceanliner won the same prizes and went on to dominate the Academy
Awards. This time, though, instead of being “king of the world,” as Cameron declared at the Oscar ceremony, he has become king of a computer-generated distant moon that made critics gush and sent box-office receipts soaring. “‘Avatar’ asks us to see that everything is connected, all human beings to each other and us to the Earth,” Cameron said. “And if you have to go four-and-a-half light years to another, made-up planet to appreciate this miracle of the world that we have right here, well, you know what, that’s the wonder of cinema right there, that’s the magic.”

International students adjust to UA By Laura Donovan Arizona Daily Wildcat On Jan. 30, the Office of International Student Programs and Services will host a day trip to Old Tucson Studios for global citizens. But the turnout could be scant, at least in relation to program attendance seen in the fall. “We get way more international students in the fall,”said Noelle Carampatan, an international student adviser. At the beginning of the school year, the international student programs and services are more frequently attended by those who have just arrived at the university because the programs are advertized in the orientation booklet, Carampatan said. There may be fewer new international students in the spring, but there are almost the same number of programs and activities each semester, Carampatan said. She also said that the program takes students to a UApresents show every semester and
typically selects something “international in flavor.” The international student programs aim to provide social opportunities as well as critical information for international students. The student orientation covers everything, including how to manage Student Link, register for classes and use services such as banks, Cat Cards and transportation. The program also hosts a bike safety class with the Department of Transportation at La Aldea Residence Hall. The international students can decide for themselves if they want to participate in specific international student program events. “I never tried to be in touch with exchange students or international students, I came here to integrate myself in the American culture,”said Lorraine Guerra, a psychology senior who moved from France in 2006. “I have the International Students Programs and Services sending me e-mails about stuff they do, but I’m not interested. I really want to be part of the
American culture and the only way for me to do that is by hanging out with my American friends,” Guerra added. Other students maintain their sense of culture by joining international-related clubs. “I am a member of Malaysian Club, and I worked for ISPS (International Student Programs and Services) for the summer to help them out with International Student Orientation,”said Husna Diyana Hafit, a geosciences junior from Malaysia. “I also joined the International Friends Club, where I meet up with new people, and I also made friends with an American. We’ve seen each other, shared information about Malaysia and the United States, and I am so happy with this friendship.” Aside from participating in international student programs and services, these students are welcome to apply to live in residence halls or move off campus. “I lived in Manzanita-Mohave for the first two months of the semester and then moved into
a house with a friend,” said Dunja Nedic, a former exchange student from Australia. “Living in the dorms definitely made it a lot easier to make friends, especially with locals,” Nedic said. “It was odd being bound by more restrictions than I’ve ever really had, even living with my parents, and I was older than pretty much everyone else in the dorm.” Guerra agreed that it was difficult to adjust to dorm life. “Dorms have a reputation of being noisy, and I like quiet places, I like to be alone, I like to spend time by myself reading or doing something else, and this would have never been possible in a dorm. And by living by myself, I have my kitchen, my bathroom and more,”Guerra said. Wherever the international students live, they can use the International Student Programs and Services for activities. “Right now we’re trying to work with Pima Community College to see if we can work with international students there for solidarity,”Carampatan said.
Help steps up, as does scale of Haiti tragedy The Associated Press PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — The staggering scope of Haiti’s nightmare came into sharper focus Monday as authorities estimated 200,000 dead and 1.5 million homeless in the heart of the luckless land, where injured survivors still died in the streets, doctors pleaded for help and looters slashed at one another in the rubble. The world pledged more money, food, medicine and police. Some 2,000 U.S. Marines steamed into nearby waters. And ex-president Bill Clinton, special U.N. envoy, flew in to offer support. But hour-by-hour the unmet needs of hundreds of thousands grew.
“Have we been abandoned? Where is the food?” shouted one man, Jean Michel Jeantet, in a downtown street. The U.N. World Food Program said it expected to boost operations from feeding 67,000 people on Sunday to 97,000 on Monday. But it needs 100 million prepared meals over the next 30 days, and it appealed for more government donations. “I know that aid cannot come soon enough,” U.N. SecretaryGeneral Ban Ki-moon said in New York after returning from Haiti. “Unplug the bottlenecks,” he urged. In one step to reassure frustrated aid groups, the U.S. military agreed to give aid
deliveries priority over military flights at the now-U.S.-run airport here, the WFP announced in Rome.The Americans’handling of civilian flights had angered some humanitarian officials. Sunday’s looting and violence raged into Monday, as hundreds clambered over the broken walls of shops to grab anything they could — including toothpaste, now valuable for lining nostrils against the stench of Port-auPrince’s dead. Police fired into the air as young men fought each other over rum and beer with broken bottles and machetes. Hard-pressed medical teams sometimes had to take time away from quake victims to deal with gunshot wounds, said Loris de Filippi of Doctors Without
Borders. In the Montrissant neighborhood, Red Cross doctors working in shipping containers and saying they “cannot cope” lost 50 patients over two days, said international Red Cross spokesman Simon Schorno. The latest casualty report, from the European Commission citing Haitian government figures, doubled previous estimates of the dead from the magnitude-7.0 quake, to approximately 200,000, with some 70,000 bodies recovered and trucked off to mass graves. If accurate, that would make Haiti’s catastrophe about as deadly as the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, which killed an estimated 230,000 people in a dozen countries.
Welcome to the new, weekly Red Cup Q&A column. This feature is devoted to your alcohol questions and concerns. Our goal is to provide Wildcat readers with accurate information, to dispel myths and give you the facts. • Did you know that the alcohol content of a 12 oz. bottle of beer, a 4-5 oz. glass of wine and a 1 oz. shot are about the same? It’s true – given that the alcohol contents are 5% for the beer, 12% for the wine and 40% for the shot. A standard drink contains 1/2 oz. of pure ethanol. You can calculate the number of standard drinks in your favorite beverage by using the following formula: 1. Multiply the serving size (in ounces) by the alcohol percent to get the total ounces of alcohol 2. Then divide by 0.5 (the size of one standard drink) Example: a 12 oz. can of beer with 5% alcohol content = 1.20 or a little over one standard drink Applying this formula, a 40 oz. can of an “ice” beer (5.9% alcohol) is actually 4.7 standard drinks. Measuring standard drinks, and pacing your drinking accordingly, can be a helpful tool to moderate your consumption and avoid the unpleasant results of heavy drinking. • Did you know that your iPhone has an alcohol app? Keep track of your BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration) in Drink Tracker while you’re drinking by entering a few numbers and... voila, it lets you know when your target BAC has been reached. You can set your own target for your profile as well as a friend’s with a countdown timer showing how long before the target is reached. BAC is calculated using gender, weight, height, # of drinks, what you are drinking and amount of time drinking. Then use Google Maps to find a taxi. • You can check out the UA’s e-chug website to assess your use of alcohol and receive personalized feedback regarding your drinking and potential risks. Just search for “echug” at www.arizona.edu to access this brief, 10 minute program.

Points aplenty for Arizona Enjoy
the segue season
Whyte scores 39 points to lead Arizona past Oregon in McKale Center
Fans should savor hoops improvement rather than cling to NCAA Tournament hopes
By Michael Fitzsimmons ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT To say that offense was on display in McKale Center over the weekend would be an understatement. A combined total of eight conference and school scoring records were broken with the Arizona women’s basketball team’s 119-112 win over Oregon (12-5, 3-2 Pacific 10 Conference) on Saturday, causing Wildcats head coach Niya Butts to do some wishful thinking. “I wonder if it’s possible to take some of the points we scored tonight and add them onto next game,” Butts joked after the team’s win, one that included a 39-point scoring binge by freshman Davellyn Whyte . The Ducks entered the game as the nation’s leading offense, averaging just more than 87 points per game, but thanks to Whyte’s and junior Ify Ibekwe ’s career-high scoring performances, the Wildcats (9-7, 3-3) were able to walk away with a big conference win on Lute & Bobbi Olson Court. “We want to win our games at home,” Butts said. “Our crowd was great and I want to give them credit as they keep coming out and supporting us.” The Wildcat offense struck fast and often in the game, shooting 62.3 percent from the field and 44.4 percent from the 3-point line. With 4:09 left in the first half, Arizona held a 53-38 lead after a trey by sophomore Reiko Thomas , who tallied 13 points and seven rebounds off the bench in the winning effort. Oregon’s attempts at a full court press backfired, as the Wildcats were able to elude the pressure and find open looks inside to junior Soana Lucet , who netted a careerhigh 28 points in the win . But the Ducks were able to hang with the Wildcats’ run-and-gun attack and rode a 12-3 run to the end of the half to cut Arizona’s lead to four at 56-52. “They told us that (Oregon) was going to be a running team, but I

Freshman Davellyn Whyte shoots around the outstretched arms of an Oregon Duck defender in the Wildcats’ 119-112 victory in McKale Center Saturday. While Whyte led the team in scoring, juniors Ify Ibekwe and Soana Lucet also lit up the scoreboard in the high-scoring win.
didn’t expect like that,” Whyte said. “It was just up and down, up and down, up and down.” The Ducks tried to contain Whyte by playing in a box-and-one defensively, but the freshman put to rest any attempts at slowing down her scoring attack by hitting one of her five 3-pointers with 15:51 left in the game to push the Arizona lead to double figures at 70-60.
Whyte’s 39 points broke the previous 13-year-old school scoring record of 35 points set by Adia Barnes. “It’s kind of cool,” said Whyte, who was named the conference’s player of the week Sunday. “But during the game, I’m not thinking about points or anything. I’m just letting the game come to me.” Despite the two teams going back and forth on offense, Arizona held
a lead of at least four the entire second half, and a layup by Ibekwe with 7:08 left in the game gave the Wildcats a 97-81 advantage, their largest of the night. After being held to seven points in her previous game, Ibekwe came out aggressive in the game against Oregon, knocking down open mid-range jump W-HOOPS, page 10

t’s a segue season. Go no further than the McKale Center team introduction video for the Arizona men’s basketball team as evidence. It begins with highlights of 25 consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances, four Final Fours and the 1997 National Championship. It then stops, switching to a bass-heavy beat of the year 2010 and cut-ups of the new-era Wildcats — Sean Miller’s Wildcats. Finally, the new head coach’s culture has arrived. Hopefully, fans will forget the backward-visioned, “keep The Streak alive” talk and will instead salivate by focusing on the future Wildcats. An impressive 74-60 victory against the Oregon Ducks in Eugene, Ore., could make that change a lot easier, despite the team’s perfectly average record (9-9, 3-3 Pacific 10 Conference). “I felt like we competed at a higher level,” Miller told The Associated Press. “The starting point of our game, the way we came out, the effort defensively, our rebounding against a very good rebounding team speaks to that effort.” Will the Wildcats show up every game from here on out? Probably not. Will that 25-year NCAA streak stay alive? Better bet against it. But it’s a segue season. The young Wildcats — the team has given an unheard-of 45 percent of ZIMMERMAN, page 10
Football Lindenwood beats up on Icecats toasts its 2009 season Icecats outscored 23-6 in two games against No. 1 Lions By Mike Schmitz ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
By Tim Kosch ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Despite a sour ending to the 2009 Arizona football season, coaches, players and staff poured into the Westin La Paloma resort hotel Saturday to celebrate one of the best seasons in Arizona history. Head coach Mike Stoops, after declaring that a poor showing in the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl wouldn’t tarnish a season that saw the Wildcats finish second in the Pacific 10 Conference, thanked the seniors leaving the program for their hard work and dedication over the years. “You (the seniors) came to this program during some difficult times when we really hadn’t accomplished anything,”Stoops said, referring to a time when the program was 6-18 to start his career. “A lot of (recruits) can go somewhere where it’s easier, but you guys came here to be a part of something and to help us turn it around.” The evening, hosted by former Wildcat and current KMSB Fox 11 reporter Brandon Nash,began with an eight-minute highlight film before interim Athletic Director Rocky LaRose welcomed the crowd. “I want to thank the team,”LaRose said. “We had a fabulous year. Congratulations to all of you and kudos to all of you, especially our seniors. We’re going to miss you, but I look forward to the future.” Dozens of Wildcats were then BANQUET, page 12
The defending American Collegiate Hockey Association Champions, Lindenwood University, made easy work of the Arizona Icecats this past weekend, sweeping the UA club hockey team in a series full of thrown punches and Lions goals. “We definitely came in intimidated and gave them way too much respect,” said senior defenseman Austin Capobianco after the first game.“We weren’t skating at all. We were just letting them skate around us and it seems, more often than not, we go down early immediately and have to climb an uphill battle.” Lindenwood (28-2) came out looking like the Hockey Association’s No. 1 team, and the Icecats (9-12) were intimidated, losing 13-4 and 10-2 in the weekend’s two-game series. In game one, it took two Lindenwood goals in the first two minutes of play for the Icecats to wake up. They answered back with a goal from freshman forward Brian Slugocki 6:07 into the first period. But just when it seemed the Icecats were gaining some momentum, junior standout Jordan Schupan left the game with a dislocated shoulder. “Not only does he kill penalties, but he’s on the power play and he’s centering the first line,” said head coach Leo Golembiewski.“It was a big loss.” Already down 3-1, Icecats players began dropping like flies. Physicality and trash-talking began brewing between the two teams, and it finally exploded in the form of four separate fights with 37 seconds

Icecats forward Brian Slugocki battles for the puck against a Lindenwood Lions player in Friday’s 13-4 Arizona loss to the No. 1 team in the nation in the Tucson Convention Center. In a two-game series with the Lions, the Icecats saw one player injured and four suspended for fighting.
remaining in the first period. Freshmen Sean MacLachlan and Zack Waxenberg, along with sophomore Geordy Weed and senior Micah Kneeshaw, were all disqualified from the contest and suspended for the second game. Three Lindenwood players were also tossed and suspended. “(The fights) were both good and bad,”Capobianco said.“We lost a lot of players but it got us back into it and really fired up the bench.” The Icecats were forced to close out the game with only 14 players in uniform, but they responded from the line brawl in a big way. Forward Brady Lefferts scored two goals in the first five minutes of the second period to bring the Icecats within one. But just as they got within striking distance, Lindenwood answered back less than a minute and
a half later with two goals of its own, surging ahead 6-3. The short bench and lack of healthy bodies crippled the Icecats, and the nation’s best club took care of business, eventually winning the game by a score of 13-4. “Losing five guys out there, it shortens your bench, makes everybody tired and makes it pretty difficult,” Lefferts said. “Losing Schupan and four others was definitely huge.” Without three of their better defensemen and arguably their best offensive player, the Icecats were dominated in game two. After freshman goaltender David Herman was exposed in Friday night’s game, Golembiewski went with junior Nick Taylor between the pipes in game two. But it didn’t matter who was in the goal as Lindenwood yet again
jumped out to an early lead against a tired and depleted Icecats team. The Lions led 4-0 at the end of the first period and eventually cruised to a 10-2 victory. But considering the circumstances — five key players out due to suspensions and injuries — the Icecats fought hard from start to finish. The end result of the weekend may have been ugly — no one enjoys being outscored 23-6 over a two-game span — but the experience of playing a team of Lindenwood’s caliber for 120 minutes will better serve this Icecats team for the remainder of the season. “Any time you play a strong team, it always benefits you because you know where you’re at and you know where you have to go to,” said associate head coach Dave Dougall. “You don’t often get to play a No. 1, so it’s a good experience.”

Great performance not enough for Gymcats Young Arizona team falls to No. 8 Stanford despite Tomczyk’s effort By Kevin Nadakal Arizona Daily Wildcat The No. 24 Arizona gymnastics team faced off against No. 12. Stanford University last weekend, losing to the Cardinal 196.025-194.675. The Wildcats (0-2) were able to stick with Stanford (1-1) throughout the first three events but couldn’t capitalize in the competition’s last. Head coach Bill Ryden said he was pleased with the improvement his team showed from last week’s meet overall. “The problem for us was we just did not have good beam,” Ryden said.“I mean, we were neck and neck with them for three events and the last rotation they were on floor and we were on beam, and we had worse beam than we had last week so overall that sort of sunk us. “You know, we blew an event and were two points ahead of last week,” he added, “so we definitely improved and I was definitely happy.” UA redshirt senior Sarah Tomczyk received a mark of 9.875 on the bars. It was a career high for Tomczyk, who took home first place in the event. “It was really nice because the five people before me went up and hit their routines, so you already know that five scores are counted so it kind of put me in a really easy position,” Tomczyk said. “I didn’t have to worry about hitting my routine or not hitting my routine. “I just went up and the first part of my routine felt great and as I went for my dismount I just visualized sticking
it, and I stuck it,” she added. “It was just a great finish to an awesome event for us.” In the final event of the competition, the Gymcats struggled on the beam, losing by 0.95 points. “Overall as a team we weren’t as sharp,” Ryden said. “Out of our six beam workers, (sophomore) Britnie (Jones) did fantastic, but the other five did less than what they were capable of.” Jones received a 9.825 for her performance on the beam and first place in the event. Last week in the same event, she tied for first place against No. 7 Arkansas. Two pleasant surprises for the Gymcats were freshmen Molly Quirk and Aubree Cristello. Both have put in career performances in the past two weeks after being forced to step in when the Gymcats were hit with several injuries. “I was pretty happy with myself. I mean, second college meet, and I went 4-for-4, which is the goal, to just hit all four routines,” said Quirk, who posted a 9.7 in the vault. “It is definitely nice to have at least one meet under my belt, kind of learn how things work in college, because it is different than club. But yeah, definitely with every time out you get a little more confident.” Next Sunday, the Gymcats travel to Tempe to face ASU at 2 p.m. “If we give the same energy and the same mentality, I don’t think we will have any issues getting a win in,” Tomczyk said.“I think we’re going to go in there and kick butt.”
What goes up does not come down
Cheerleaders and K - ninth graders all smiles at clinic By Jaime Valenzuela Arizona Daily Wildcat
The only thing bigger than the UA cheerleaders’ stunts on Saturday were the smiles on the participating kids’ faces. Thirty students, none older than 14, from as far as Vail, Ariz., participated in the third annual Kindergarten - 9th Grade Cheer Clinic! held by the Arizona cheerleaders and mascots at the Richard Jefferson Gymnasium. “Working with the kids is fun,” said Vanessa Romeo, the SI.com cheerleader of the week. “It’s the most enjoyable (part of the clinic).” The cheer clinic started with introductions and a musical game to break the ice among the participating kids. The musical game included a cheerleading jump called lover’s leap, in which one person leaps into the arms of another. After the intros and game, the kids were taught the three essential cheers for the UA cheerleading team, which include “Go ‘Cats Go,”“Let’s Go ’Cats” and “Ar-i-zo-na.” There were claps and fist pumps galore with each cheer taught. Cheerleaders demonstrated each cheer step-by-step as the students followed, smiling all the while. The cheerleaders moved on to teaching jumps, and unlike the two previous years, this year’s cheer clinic included stunts. “We incorporated stunting, and we did a little more with jumps so the kids would get more out of it,”said first-year head cheerleading and mascot coach Tori Palmer. The stunting required several members of the squad to be lifted and held up in the air by their teammates. While in the air, the cheerleaders showcased the spins, flips and cheers fans have come to know and love at UA home sporting events. Brian Howard, a transfer student from Notre Dame and first-year

cheerleader, soon found himself holding up more than his fellow cheerleaders. Howard and the rest of the squad got to hoist some of the participating kids into the air so they could show off their stunts. “It’s nice to see the kids come out,” Howard said. “Hopefully they’ll get a chance to learn a lot. It’s neat to just play with the kids. They’re fun.” Though many of the older and more daring students participating in the clinic were going airborne, a game of duck-duck-goose broke out on the sidelines with some of the cheerleaders and younger kids not
wishing to show off their stunts in the air. “The kids had fun and got to interact with the cheerleaders,” Palmer said. “Their favorite part is just getting to know them.” After the stunts, the cheerleaders showed off their dance skills, and the kids learned a dance routine. As a finale, after lunch, the kids watched the cheerleading team do a routine they have been working on. The spectators looked on as the cheerleaders jumped, stunted and danced under Cheer, page 12

Track and field flies over UNLV, NAU
• The Wildcats and Ducks combined to score 231 points, the most points ever scored in a Pac-10 game; Arizona’s 119 points set the record for the most by a team in a Pac-10 game, while Oregon’s 112 set the record for most points by a losing team in a Pac-10 game. • The last time Arizona scored 100 points in a single game was against UNLV on Dec. 22, 2002. • The Wildcats broke the record in McKale Center for points scored by one team. • The win over Oregon marked the first time two players, Whyte and Ibekwe, have each scored 30 points in a game for Arizona.
forward Derrick Williams, who has accounted for 480 of the 1,647 minutes played by the team’s freshmen five, recorded 20 points and 13 rebounds to lead Arizona in a game in which it never trailed. “After the loss (to Oregon State), Coach got on me a little bit,”Williams told The Associated Press.“He just told me to pick it up a little bit. I need to play a little bit better for us to win, so that’s what I did today.” Talk about learning on the fly. Miller has had little choice but to play a bevy of underclassmen along with lone senior Nic Wise. In doing so, the future pay-off — thanks to a nationally ranked top-10 nonconference schedule leading into a weak Pac-10 lineup — will be tremendous.
If he gives them turmoil, throws them into the fire and coaches them to overcome the obstacles, Miller will soon have a young team on paper but not in experience. Such are the hidden gems of the segue season, only if the importance of wins and losses is overlooked. That’s because it should be overlooked. Enjoy the new team, enjoy the maturation of young athletes and envision the future rather than wish for the good ol’ days. After all, that’s what the history books are for. —Kevin Zimmerman is a journalism junior. He can be reached at email@example.com.

That youth could have been the main factor in some key losses, such as the 4:10 scoreless period to end Thursday’s game against Oregon State. The Beavers clawed back and, with the game tied at 64 apiece, OSU guard Lathen Wallace hit a 3-pointer in the final seconds to send the Wildcats out of Corvallis, Ore. in yet another close and painful loss. Arizona turned to resiliency for the third straight conference weekend. In all three cases, the Wildcats won their second weekend game after dropping the first. Against the Ducks, freshman
shots and even hitting a rare 3-pointer en route to her career night. “Ify (Ibekwe) was aggressive, she knocked down shots, she took opportunities to take the ball off the rim and attack the basket,” Butts said. A double-double candidate every game, Ibekwe neared a triple-double on Saturday by finishing the game with 32 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists. Whyte sealed the win with a 3-pointer in the final minute, giving Arizona back-to-back conference wins for the first time since a home series against the Oregon schools in the ’07-’08 season. “It gives us a confidence booster,” Ibekwe said. “It’s really good to get these wins at home.”

In its first track and field meet of the 2010 season, Arizona soared over the competition at the Lumberjack Invitational — literally. The Wildcat jumpers took over the meet on Saturday, earning five NCAA qualifications in the process. During both the men’s and women’s high jump finals, only UA jumpers were left in the pit. Long jumper Luis RiveraMorales won the men’s long jump with a distance of 7.88 meters, guaranteeing him a spot at the national championships and setting a new school record at the Northern Arizona University indoor facility. “I felt it was a really good first meet, but I want to work on my approach,” the senior jumper said. “I want to keep building momentum going to the championships.” Not only did the long jumpers dominate their competitors, but the high jumpers were equally as impressive. Senior Liz Patterson won the women’s high jump with a height of 1.91m and a guaranteed spot at the NCAA National Championships.
Sophomore high jumper Courtney Hayes came in third with a height of 1.75m, a new personal record for her. “Today was a good day … I haven’t jumped like what I jumped today since high school,” Hayes said. Freshmen Edgar Rivera-Morales and Nick Ross both jumped 2.20m and won the men’s high jump. For freshmen Rivera-Morales, Ross and Brigetta Barrett, the Lumberjack Invitational was their first NCAA indoor meet, but all were able to provisionally qualify for nationals. “I was pretty nervous going in,” Ross said. “After I got my first two jumps out of the way, I was fine after that.” Barrett came in second in the women’s high jump with a height of 1.80m. “I wasn’t satisfied with the jump I did, but the fact that I came out and did well my first meet is what I’m really proud of,” Barrett said. “I’m never happy. I’m not going to be happy once I get auto (qualification). But I think that’s the attitude we need.” Arizona athletes besides the jumpers

NFL Roundup Greene, defense propel Jets past Chargers
SAN DIEGO — Maybe Rex Ryan already knows the score of the AFC championship game, too. The rookie coach who, at one point, didn’t know his Jets were still in playoff contention, then declared them Super Bowl favorites, will need some more bold predictions. His Jets are still playing. Rookies Mark Sanchez and Shonn Greene led New York to a stunning 17-14 upset of San Diego in the divisional playoffs Sunday, each providing a touchdown in the fourth quarter that marked another Chargers postseason pratfall. “It’s a big win for our franchise,” Sanchez said,“and we’re not done.”
Saints rout Cardinals, reach NFC title game
NEW ORLEANS — Reggie Bush danced around defenders who fell over each other trying to tackle him. Drew Brees was back to passing with pinpoint accuracy, picking apart a beleaguered and depleted Arizona secondary. A little rest was all the Saints needed to shift their league-leading offense back into overdrive. Brees threw three touchdown passes, Bush scored on an 83-yard punt return and a spectacular 46-yard run, and New
Orleans overwhelmed the defending NFC champion Cardinals 45-14 in their divisional playoff game Saturday. “So much for being rusty,” Saints coach Sean Payton said. “That bye week was critical, getting guys healthy. ... I knew we were ready, the way we worked all week and we were confident in what we were going to do.” One win from their first Super Bowl, the Saints will host an NFC title game for the first time in franchise history next weekend when they play the winner of Sunday’s matchup between Dallas and Minnesota.
Favre, Viking defense rough up Romo, Cowboys
MINNEAPOLIS — This is why Brett Favre said he was coming back. And back he is — maybe better than ever. Four — count ‘em, four — touchdown passes from Minnesota’s 40-year-old quarterback put the Vikings within a game of the Super Bowl with a 34-3 rout of the Dallas Cowboys to advance to the NFC championship Sunday. The Vikings (13-4) will take on the Saints next Sunday at New Orleans, with the winner going to the NFL title game — Favre’s season-long goal and the reason he came out of retirement for a second straight season. “Today was like this season — it’s been wonderful,”Favre said. Asked if it was an emotional game for him, he said.

Banquet Colts beat Ravens 20-3, advance to AFC title game
INDIANAPOLIS — There’s a price to pay for keeping the ball out of Peyton Manning’s hands. Once he gets it, he doesn’t give it back — at least not until he’s gotten the Indianapolis Colts plenty of points and a playoff win. In his first game since winning an unprecedented fourth NFL MVP award, Manning threw for two touchdowns Saturday night in a 20-3 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. The Colts will host the AFC championship next Sunday against San Diego or the New York Jets. “Whoever it is, we know it’s going to be a challenge and we have to step it up another notch,” coach Jim Caldwell said. Manning and the other Colts starters got lots of rest when the rookie coach sat them for long portions of the final two regular-season games, both losses after they had opened 140. Then they had a bye, a reward for owning the league’s best record. And when the Ravens (10-8), who routed New England in the wild-card round, marched 87 yards for an early field goal, the All-Pro quarterback’s sour face told it all.

Turner said. “I stand up here today having no regrets at all.”
After putting the finishing touches on the 2009 season at the year-end banquet, the Arizona football program has officially moved on to 2010. The Wildcats will announce an already impressive recruiting class during the first week of February, and the team will start spring practices in March. As for the Wildcats who are no longer with the program, three players are currently training for the NFL Combine in February. Defensive tackle Earl Mitchell and cornerback Devin Ross will take part in the East-West Shrine Game to show off their skills to NFL coaches before the combine, and tight end Rob Gronkowski is going through rigorous rehab to be healthy enough for the NFL Combine. All three of those players, as well as others, including H-back Chris Gronkowski, will show off for scouts in both Arizona and individual Pro Days sometime between the NFL Combine in February and the NFL Draft in April.

recognized for various All Pac-10 Team awards and individual Pac-10 Player of the Week awards, followed by team awards. Offensive coordinator Sonny Dykes awarded center Colin Baxter the Offensive Player of the Year Award, and an emotional defensive line coach Mike Tuiasosopo gave the Defensive Player of the Year Award to defensive tackle Earl Mitchell. Freshman Jake Fischer and senior Chris Gronkowski were recognized for their work in the classroom, and senior linebacker Xavier Kelley was awarded the Tedy Bruschi Award, given annually to the player that excels on and off the field both as a player and a leader. After the awards, the focus shifted back to the seniors. They were commended for having back-to-back eight-win seasons, beating USC to finish second in the Pac-10, beating ASU the last two years in a row, turning the program around and being a vital part of Arizona football. “I remember Spencer Larsen, the great linebacker at the UA, and his speech when he talked about having no regrets,” senior wide receiver Terrell

Although his athletes had a good day, Arizona head coach Fred Harvey feels that his team can, and should, do better. “The bottom line is, this is Flagstaff,” Harvey said. “Not the NCAA Championships.”

Cheer camp gives a glimpse of future
Palmer’s instruction. Following the routine, many of the cheerleaders and kids walked over to McKale Center to cheer on the Arizona women’s basketball team as it hosted the Oregon Ducks. The students were invited to attend the game as part of the clinic.
“We want them to have fun and have a good time here,” Palmer said.“(We want them) to see if it is something they are interested in and maybe want to do in the future.” Added Berg: “There are definitely some future cheerleaders out there.”
