New dorms solar powered Students will have energy efficient options in Sixth Street residence halls By Bethany Barnes ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
Construction on the new dorms is both on schedule and sustainable , officials say. The new halls will be located on Highland and Sixth Street, and Tyndall Avenue and Sixth Street. Both halls are built to be sustainable with the hope of winning a silver LEED certification. Leadership in Energy
and Environmental Design is a designation given to buildings designed to be sustainable. Solar panels already installed on the roof will provide 60 percent of the hot water needs. “They’re doing this because it will use less energy and it’s the responsible approach to take and we will be using less steam which is the university’s method for providing hot water,” said Melissa Dryden, senior
program coordinator for planning, design and construction. In addition to the panels, the rooms will also have smart thermostats that will recognize when the room is unoccupied. “After the room has been unoccupied for a period, then the heating or cooling would be lowered to a more energy efficient setting,” Dryden said. Each room will also have two different types of outlets, one of which will be a more
energy efficient outlet that will shut off when the room is unoccupied. The halls will also be equipped for water harvesting and storm water mitigation. “When we have storms, the water will be harvested and then be able to be used for the landscaping,” Dryden said. Students will also be able to open their windows for air cirDORMS, page 3
Obama signs Hispanic education order MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE WASHINGTON — Two weeks before elections in which Democrats in several states are nervous that depressed turnout by Latino voters could cost them their jobs, President Barack Obama on Tuesday signed an executive order to improve Hispanic children’s educational opportunities. Obama’s order appeared to be, at least in part, a bid to rally Latinos behind Democrats and him this election season. If Latino voters sit out the elections, that’ll hurt Democrats the most, because most Latinos traditionally back Democrats. This could be of particular consequence in close contests this year in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Texas and Washington state. A survey that the nonpartisan Pew Hispanic Center released this month found that education, jobs and health care rank as the top issues for registered Latino voters. Immigration came in fifth, behind federal budget deficits. Nearly two years after Obama was elected, legislation that would give millions of illegal immigrants a path to citizenship is going nowhere in Congress. The
narrower DREAM Act, which would allow young illegal immigrants who serve in the military or attend college to seek citizenship, also is stalled. Latinos make up roughly 15 percent of the U.S. population and 9 percent of eligible voters. However, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said the elections had nothing to do with the executive order, noting Latino dropout rates. “It’s the right thing to do, not because of the political calendar,” Gibbs said. A mariachi band played in the White House Grand Foyer as Obama entered the East Room before an audience of HispanicAmerican advocates. There he signed the order renewing the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics. The program, an effort to determine the causes of the achievement gap between Hispanic students and their peers and to work to address them, began under President George H.W. Bush, and continued and expanded under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. Despite two decades of focused efforts, only 50 percent of Hispanic chil-

dren graduate from high school within four years, compared with three-fourths of all incoming freshmen. Obama said that Latinos accounted for more than one in five U.S. students and were more likely to attend low-performing schools, be in larger classes, drop out or arrive at college underprepared. “This is not just a Latino problem, this is an American problem … we will all fall behind together,” he said, adding that there isn’t just a moral aspect but also “an economic imperative” to improve Latino students’ performances. The president didn’t mention voter turnout. He called on Congress to pass the DREAM Act and told the Hispanic advocates that his approach is about “giving you more say in the policies that affect your lives.” “Immigration reform is high on our list,” said Rudy Lopez, the national field director and political director of the advocacy group Center for Community Change, “but we also want good schools for our kids and jobs.” Lopez said the executive order was “a gesture,” and “a good thing.” Nevertheless, he doesn’t expect Latino turnout this year to approach 2008 or 2006 levels.

UNITED NATIONS — Torture is still practiced in countries that signed the Convention Against Torture 26 years ago, the United Nations said Tuesday. Claudio Grossman, chairman of a U.N. committee monitoring implementation of the convention, said the world has yet to achieve the goal of eradicating torture and inhuman treatment — as called for in the agreement signed in 1984. “The absolute prohibition of torture … is not yet a reality in many states that have ratified the convention,” Grossman said on the fringes of meetings with heads of human-rights organizations at U.N. headquarters in New York. The convention bans torture under any circumstances, including during wartime or internal political conflicts. The document bans deportation to countries where deportees would face the risk of torture and prohibits use of torture to extract information in legal proceedings. The committee against torture studied reports each year from countries that are parties to the convention, on their implementation of the convention. Grossman said some 32 countries of the 147 signatories have yet to submit their reports for 2010. The committee has expressed “regrets” that 64 of the 147 parties have rejected its competence to examine individual complaints alleging torture. Individual complaints are an “important tool” for gauging the implementation of the convention, allowing torture victims to present their cases before the international community, Grossman said. He called those complaints “reallife situations.” The committee this year determined that deportation of people to countries where they risk sexual violence amounts to a breach of the convention. Grossman said the decision was taken because the convention against torture is a case of evolving jurisprudence. Grossman is dean of the American University Washington College of Law and a member of the InterAmerican Commission on Human Rights. The signers of the convention include the five U.N. Security Council permanent members: the United States, Russia, China, France and Britain.

New question: Will you be going to one of Tucson’s haunted houses?
English Junior What are you reading here in the Union? I am reading a book called “Drown” for my English class. It’s kind of interesting it’s about drug cartels in Mexico, I believe, I’m only a little bit in to it. How could you go wrong with a book about drugs? Are you a big reader? Yes, I’m a huge reader. Are you into Harry Potter, Twilight, classic literature, what? I love Harry Potter; I read all the time. I walk from class to my house, while reading, it’s embarrassing, but I read a lot and I don’t like Twilight but I love Harry Potter and I love basically all books, I read anything. How many times have you read Harry Potter? Okay, I have read the first through the fourth nine times each. I’m not even joking I wish I was though and then I’ve read the other ones probably about four or five times each. Do you ever get extremely irritated when movies just completely ruin books? I was really, really angry after the sixth Harry Potter movie because it ruined it so much. They added parts that weren’t in there and it really, really angered me. Do you believe in ghosts? Yes, I do believe in ghosts. So I take it you are going to be seeing Paranormal this week? I am if I can get someone to drive me on Thursday night at midnight. Have you had any out of body experiences with any extraterrestrial creatures and or ghosts? Never extraterrestrial creatures, but one time I went to a haunted house in San Diego called Quest Havens and I swear to God I was chased out of the forest by ghosts. We broke in to the forest of an old burned down asylum in San Diego, because I am crazy and do stuff like that, and we were poking around for like an hour and all of a sudden we heard footsteps and a noise behind us and it was like two in the morning on a Tuesday night, in the middle of the woods. Seriously, it really happened. So I take it you are pumped for the scary aspect of the Halloween festivities? Yes, I am really excited. Are you going to have your own haunted house? Probably not but I definitely want to go to the “Slaughter House,” but not have my own. — Caroline Nachazel

Military recruiters told to accept gay applicants
The military is accepting openly gay recruits for the first time in the nation’s history, even as it tries in the courts to slow the movement to abolish its “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. Some gay activist groups were planning to send people to enlist at recruiting stations to test the Pentagon’s Tuesday announcement. Meanwhile, a federal judge in California whose ruling last week brought the 17-year policy the closest yet to being overturned was likely to reject
the government’s latest effort to halt her order telling the military to stop enforcing the law. The Justice Department will likely appeal her decision. The Defense Department has said it would comply with U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips’ order and had frozen any discharge cases. But at least one case was reported of a man being turned away from an Army recruiting office in Austin, Texas. Pentagon spokeswoman Cynthia Smith said recruiters had been given top-level guidance to accept
applicants who say they are gay. Recruiters also have been told to inform potential recruits that the moratorium on enforcement of the policy could be reversed at any time, if the ruling is appealed or the court grants a stay, she said. While activists were going to enlist, gay rights groups were continuing to tell service members to avoid revealing that they are gay, fearing they could find themselves in trouble should the law be reinstated.

ASUA’s culture festival up for funding By Jazmine Woodberry Arizona Daily Wildcat ASUA Senate’s Wednesday meetings plans can be summed up in one word: funds. The Tanzbödeli project, headed by Sen. Taylor Bilby, is rehashing its senate funds requests. Tanzbödeli is an arts and culture festival slated to occur April 1, which brings local artists to the UA in a silent auction to raise money for breast cancer research. Last week, Bilby brought the funding request to the senate for the first time, but the ef-
fort was tabled for a delineated budget of the project as a whole. Bilby is seeking funding to create posters aimed to advertise to local artists who could donate their work in support of the cause. Bilby noted the project is an important one for her, as she has had family members with breast cancer and hopes the effort will become an annual event. This week’s consent agenda, now approved by its full board after last week’s addition of its seventh director, Carlita Cotton, gave out $4,692.26 to clubs this week. Camp Wildcat Club’s request
was tabled in order to give the club time to provide receipts for transportation costs. Phi Alpha Delta, the pre-law fraternity, asked for its request to be tabled until the next meeting on Oct. 25. Relay for Life, Arizona Model United Nations Club and the Dhamaka Indian Club all received only partial funding for their requests. The last item on the agenda is the Service Olympics’ $400 prize money request. The Service Olympics was formerly the Club Triathlon of previous years, but since more activities were added this year, the name was changed.
Military starts taking applications from openly gay, lesbian recruits McClatchy Tribune WASHINGTON — Military officials said Tuesday they have begun accepting applications from openly gay and lesbian recruits, creating a dilemma for many homosexuals who long have wanted to join the armed forces but worry their status will be jeopardized if the controversial “don’t ask, don’t tell’’ policy is reimposed. Also Tuesday a federal judge in California refused to set aside her injunction halting enforcement of the policy, which she had ruled unconstitutional. Obama administration lawyers are expected to file a formal appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit in San Francisco to stop her ban and allow the Pentagon to continue its internal review of the policy. With the policy at this point legally no longer in force, the Pentagon announced that recruiters have begun taking applications from men and women who say they are gay or lesbian. “Recruiters have been given guidance, and they will process applications for applicants who admit they are openly gay or lesbian,” said Cynthia O. Smith, a Pentagon spokeswoman. Yet Smith noted that recruiters have been told to remind applicants that the court injunction could quickly be reversed. If that occurred, she said, statements by recruits that they are homosexual could be used to reject them immediately or discharge them if they had been accepted into the service. Under the “don’t ask, don’t tell” law, enacted in 1993 during the Clinton administration, recruits have not been asked about their sexual orientation when they seek to enlist — a policy that the Pentagon
said would remain in effect while the litigation continues, she said. But also under the law, anyone who freely states that he or she is a homosexual is removed from the ranks of the military. Last week, Clifford L. Stanley, the undersecretary of Defense for personnel and readiness, reminded recruiters in a memo not to ask service members or applicants about their sexual orientation. Many advocates, including Aubrey Sarvis, executive director of the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, urged would-be recruits to proceed carefully. “During this interim period of uncertainty,” Sarvis said, “service members must not come out and recruits should use caution if choosing to sign up. The bottom line: If you come out now, it can be used against you in the future by the Pentagon.’’ One of the first to take the opportunity to enlist was former Army Lt. Dan Choi, a Tustin, Calif., native and Iraq war veteran who came out on the “Rachel Maddow Show” on cable TV in March 2009. The West Point graduate was discharged earlier this year for being gay. Choi, 29, made an event of his re-enlistment, tweeting his movements as he strolled through midtown Manhattan to the Times Square recruiting station. There, he rapped on the glass door, entered and asked to enlist in the Marines. They said he was too old, so Choi filled out papers to re-enlist in the Army. “We’re still in a war, and soldiers are needed,” Choi said. “I have a newfound faith in our government that at least one branch is on the side of the Constitution, is on the side of the people.” In Los Angeles, Army recruiters were abiding by the
Pentagon’s new directive, but they did not report a groundswell of new recruits. “Right now, we can’t ask but they can tell,’’ said Fernando Sanjurjo, spokesman for the Army’s Los Angeles Recruiting Battalion. “We’re going to do whatever we’re told to do and drive on. But no influx yet.’’ Sanjuro added that potential recruits are being told that the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy could be reinstated at any time by the appellate courts. Aaron Belkin, director of Palm Center, a think tank on gays and the military at the University of California-Santa Barbara, called the military’s announcement on accepting gay recruits a “stunt” because many legal experts expect the appellate court to reinstate the ban while they review the case. “For the first time in 65 years we’ve had a week where gays and lesbians can serve openly in the military, and we haven’t seen any negative reports of any consequences,’’ Belkin said. Meanwhile, supporters of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, such as the conservative Family Research Council, said “homosexuals are desperate’’ to get into the military, but the government should continue to fight in the courts and on Capitol Hill to keep the ban in place. “With Democrats likely to lose control of Congress in the upcoming election,’’ the council said, “they see the window for imposing their radical social agenda on the armed forces closing fast. But that is no reason for tossing out legislative debate, administrative review and judicial restraint.’’ They added that the law should remain in force until at least next year, when the new Congress will receive the Pentagon’s internal review and can hold hearings on the issue.

Neighboring residents annoyed by construction

culation. “Here I think that’s true in all of the dorms, but on other campuses there are a lot where that is not true,” said Jim Van Arsdel, assistant vice president for student affairs and university housing. “Most of the office buildings even here are like that … which is kind of sad.” With construction going as planned, the details of the residence halls are beginning to take shape. The copper-like panels are making their way onto all of the buildings at the Tyndall construction site. “It’s kind of like having an extended birthday in a way, it’s like ‘Oh I didn’t know it would look like that,’” Van Arsdel said. “I’m someone who thinks that they know pretty well how it would look, but there are always surprises.” The construction at the Highland site, which began after the Tyndall site, “changes pretty dramatically by the week right now,” Van Arsdel said. They are in the process of putting brick on the exterior of the buildings. “For all intents and purposes the back two buildings are done, and that leaves the front three buildings and they are coming along on those but they’re the buildings that were started later so they are going to finish later” Van Arsdel said of the Tyndall construction site.
According to Van Arsdel, they are holding off on putting in carpet in order to keep it clean. “I really hope and I really believe that the people who live in them are going to really, really enjoy them. And maybe more important than just enjoying them, I think they’re going to find them really good places to be while they’re here living and learning,” Van Arsdel said. Some students in the Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall are also excited for the dorms to be built because of the noise from the construction. “I wake up at 4 in the morning,” says pre-pharmacy freshman Haley Willett. “I wish it wasn’t done at night when I’m sleeping.” Willet stays in her dorm for half of the week and says she is always woken up by the construction. “I haven’t received complaints to my office,” Dryden said. “It’s difficult because there are residence halls right next door,” According to Dryden, residents are notified when there will be overnight construction. “Residents have been very patient and understanding,” Dryden said. The residence halls are expected to be completed by the spring and will be ready to move students in by the Fall 2011 semester.

Just a bundle of sticks, bro Johnny McKay
Arizona Daily Wildcat
ollowing up on the flamboyant spirit of Coming Out Week, today we shall discuss the hot-button word, “faggot.” This will be a fair and articulate exposé on the nomenclature, a magical journey through time and space, exploring the myriad manifestations and uses of the word in question. Through the careful application of knowledge, history and social folklore, we will finally be able to understand how the Olde English word for measuring bundles of sticks became what Chad is after missing a cup at beer pong. Faggot originated as an English word used to describe different amounts of twigs or short pieces of wood. As a meter refers to length, a faggot relayed the amount of wood that would compile the pile (real fact: a short faggot = 2 by 3 feet sticks, a long faggot = 2 by 4 feet). It eventually morphed into a more general word for a burning pile of sticks, given the usual use one would have for a bundle of twigs (voodoo dolls and Yule goats notwithstanding). Phallic conclusions aside, the eventual evolution from such an innocent connotation to an offensive slang for a gay man is, at best, hazy. After about five minutes of extensive research on the internet, I was able to discern two main schools of theory. The first is that faggots of wood were used commonly in the burning at the stake of heretics in the Inquisition for crimes that frequently included homosexuality. Another theory arises from the fact that the term was used in Britain to denote lower-class individuals, such as students who would perform tasks for more senior ranking classmates (think pledges). This was then somehow applied to anal sex and the role of the “passive” partner. Both are sound theories but are also superfluous, as the main point is that today, faggot is an extremely offensive word to gay people, and yet is somehow also used frequently in social situations. If you have been on campus recently, I am pretty sure (100 percent sure if you have ears) that you have heard the word faggot thrown around by a bro. These ignorant men toss around the word faggot like it’s an integral part of their aerobic respiration, managing to squeeze it into many of their conversations. This is an incredibly offensive word to the gay community. While some people are uncomfortable with the idea of man-on-man action, I’m pretty positive these bros simply lack the intellectual breadth to expand their lexicon, and as such should be forgiven, maybe pitied, for the miniscule number of words they have to choose from. Plus, “Drink that shot, you frivolous simpleton!” just doesn’t have the same ring. The thing is, with such a negative and hateful connotation, the word should have such a social stigma attached to it that makes it unspeakable. Somehow, though, unlike many bigoted slurs (think the infamous n-word), it does not carry a fear of exclusion or painful reckoning for the utterer. Part of the reason for this is the general stereotype of the gay man. No gym rat, who spends most of his waking life chuggin’ Muscle Milk and workin’ out at the gym, is going to fear retribution from a gay person over the word faggot. The erroneous consensus is that all gay people are effeminate, “girly” men who would rather squeal than stand up for their rights. This stereotype grants perceived immunity to any who dare use the word faggot. However, it is due time for the word to be “taken back” by the gay community, and here’s how. The next time “faggot” is uttered nonchalantly by a bro on campus, the Rainbow Police Hit Squad should be activated. This would consist of two “bears” (slang for large hairy gay men) who would materialize out of nowhere and teach the offending speaker a lesson or two. The fear would begin to spread, and soon many people would think twice about carelessly tossing around a word with such hate attached to it. Just as Jewish people lack a cool greeting (my vote is for “What’s spinning my Dreidel?”), gay people lack a formerly bigoted word turned exclusive term of endearment. The process is starting — faggot and dyke are beginning to be used ironically and lovingly in the gay community, but the words’ widespread use as insults among others means its not quite there yet. With a little more insight and social consequence, I think that the result is attainable. Let’s take it back. — Johnny McKay is a media arts senior.

Third-party candidate made debate worthwhile Brett Haupt Arizona Daily Wildcat
omewhere between Republican Jesse Kelly’s continuous snide remarks and Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ repeated insistence that she was a product of Southern Arizona schools, I remembered why many of us feel so bitter toward government in general: It seems to be all talk, no results. We learned a few things at Monday night’s Congressional District 8 debate: Giffords is more vulnerable than first expected, Kelly knows how to incite riotous approval with his words and someone should probably put Libertarian candidate Steven Stoltz in a public speaking class. The debate was, at its best, a comedic look into Southern Arizona politics, including Stoltz’s struggle to speak what came to his mind and an indignant moderator, Christopher Conover, interrupting Kelly to tell the audience, “Let’s keep our comments to a minimum.” Throughout the debate, one of the most entertaining features was simply Conover’s irate facial expressions. The debate proved a lively event and, although Giffords and Stoltz seemed a little perturbed by the disturbances, Kelly conversely relished the occasional chaotic moments, cranking up his charismatic smile to full blast, almost as if he wanted a riot to ensue.
But for those of us on the fence in this contentious congressional race, the debate was extremely disappointing. Not only did many of the candidates’ answers have little or nothing to do with Southern Arizona, but they were often prefaced with barbs toward the opposing candidates that had little or nothing to do with Congressional District 8 issues. It was clear that Giffords had more substantive and relevant information about what was going on in Southern Arizona. This is no surprise; she is the incumbent and is endowed with more experience. However, Kelly’s inability to address almost anything pertinent to us, the citizens of Southern Arizona, was disturbing. Instead, Kelly chose, for the greater part of the night, to hide behind broad sweeping generalizations against the national Democratic Party, a stance that for the most part was successful in duping many of the audience members into raucous applause. Kelly’s strongest moment was his deferment of questions regarding his father’s business accepting stimulus money, when Kelly is himself completely against stimulus spending. Kelly coolly brushed off the question, saying he was proud of the work the company has done: “Dag gone good work, too.” From that question on, one could see Kelly’s confidence building. That question alone certainly could have ended his chances for a seat in Congress, and he
did well to avert a crisis for his campaign. And then there was Stoltz. The bumbling, stumbling and mumbling Libertarian provided relief for the sometimes-tense atmosphere at the debate. At one point, after being told he had 45 seconds to respond to a question, Stoltz said simply, “I only need five seconds.” And nothing more. Stoltz often answered the questions with a reference to the Constitution, refuting or supporting many of the proposed plans of the other candidates based on whether or not the plan was constitutional. Stoltz was quintessentially bad at putting sentences together, stumbling through many of the questions for several seconds before answering. While he was altogether one of the more unfortunate debaters I have ever witnessed, he was simultaneously so refreshing. The times that Stoltz had the unfortunate opportunity to speak were the only moments when I got the feeling that I wasn’t being spoon-fed bullshit from elephants and donkeys. The almost unprepared nature of Stoltz’s speaking was amazingly liberating from the political garbage spewed from Kelly and Giffords. Stoltz stuck to the Constitution for answers and proved that, like many thirdparty candidates, while he may not have the means to run a successful campaign, he can instill some curiosity into the back of voters’ minds as to why he probably would be better fit to lead than the usual suspects. If you want your vote to count, by all means vote Giffords or Kelly, but if you really want change for the better, it’s time to branch out. Vote Steven Stoltz for Congress. — Brett Haupt is a journalism junior. He can be reached at email@example.com.
O’Donnell’s platform, personal life at drastic odds Nyles Kendall Arizona Daily Wildcat
elaware senatorial candidates Christine O’Donnell (R) and Chris Coons (D) went toe to toe in a nationally televised debate Oct. 12. Unlike her fellow mamma grizzly Sarah Palin, O’Donnell didn’t use folksy catch phrases and compulsive winking to mask her incompetence. Instead, the political lightweight stumbled over the simplest questions and parroted standard Republican talking points. Coons, although far more articulate than his opponent, fell short of expectations as well. The New Castle County executive was condescending and dismissive of O’Donnell at times, frequently prefacing his responses to her statements by saying, “There’s so much to respond to there.” But Coons’ mistakes aside, O’Donnell’s hawkish fiscal conservatism despite the utter disarray of her own personal finances will leave a lasting impression on Delawarean voters this November. O’Donnell decided that her first line of attack would be aimed at Coons’ handling of the New Castle County budget. She pointedly accused the two-term
county executive of leading New Castle to the verge of bankruptcy, an accusation which Coon’s campaign has fervently denied. Moving on to issues of a national scope, O’Donnell claimed the federal deficit was the result of the Democratic Party’s “tax and spend” economic policies. She then rattled off a list of proposed reforms, one of which included cancelling the “unspent” stimulus bill. But of course, staying true to her conservative principles, O’Donnell also railed against welfare recipients, claiming those who receive food stamp are entrenched in a “culture of dependency.” O’Donnell, who had stated earlier that the country could not spend its way to economic recovery, seemingly contradicted her hard-line stance on federal spending when the focus of the debate shifted to foreign policy. O’Donnell scoffed at Coons’ claim that the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have contributed to the nation’s debt, contending that a military withdrawal from Afghanistan, a $3 trillion money pit, would embolden terrorists and threaten the nation’s security.
“When we were fighting the Soviets over there in Afghanistan in the ‘80s and ‘90s, we did not finish the job. … If you’re going to make these politically correct statements that it’s costing us too much money, you are threatening the security of our homeland,” O’Donnell said. But clearly, O’Donnell is in no position to berate anyone for his or her money management skills. Earlier this year, the IRS placed a lien against O’Donnell for nearly $12,000 in taxes and penalties from 2005, which she now claims was the result of a “computer error”. She was also sued by Farleigh Dickinson University for $4,823 in unpaid tuition, and in 2008 she defaulted on her mortgage, resulting in a $90,000 judgment. O’Donnell’s reported income was a meager $5,800 between March 2009 and July 2010. She would have been filing for chapter seven bankruptcy today had she not used campaign funds to pay for her personal expenses. Although O’Donnell has said questions about her finances are a distraction and an insult to voters, given her checkered financial history, it’s hard to believe she’ll be able to tackle the nation’s deficit. O’Donnell should get her own financial affairs in order before running on a platform of fiscal responsibility. — Nyles Kendall is a political science junior.

POLICEBEAT By Lucy Valencia ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
Man starts fire on “Secret Government Orders”
A University of Arizona Police Department officer arrested a man for reckless burning in the alley north of Jett’s Wildcat on Sunday, at 9:55 a.m. The man was cited and released. At 9:33 a.m., the officer responded to 501 N. Park Ave. in reference of a man who had started a fire in the alley. On arrival, the officer made contact with the man, who was sitting on top of a picnic bench facing the building talking to himself. The man had no identification and verbally provided his name, date of birth, social security number and states in which he previously held driver’s licenses. The officer checked the alley for signs of a fire and observed the ashes of a newspaper. He also saw a burned palm tree stump. The fire had extinguished itself before the officer arrived. The officer tried contacting the owner of the property and left a voicemail for him at the phone number provided by the employee at the register inside of Jett’s Wildcat. The man admitted to starting a fire with a Tucson daily newspaper in the alley to the north, using it to burn the stump of a palm tree. When the officer asked the man why he would do that, he replied that he was on secret orders of the government and was attempting to send a message. The officer then called the community director of the ArizonaSonora Residence Hall and asked her to meet with him in the alley. She arrived shortly afterward and stated that she had been looking out of her apartment and had seen flames in the alley. She called 911 and observed a man putting his feet into the fire. The community director pointed to where the officer had found the newspaper ashes and the burned stump and said that that was where the fire had been. The officer observed no other burn damage to any building, wall or UA property. He asked the community director if she would be able to identify the man she had seen and she replied that she would. The officer then asked her to walk to the front of the store to see if the man the police were speaking to was the same person she had observed. She did so, and pointed to the man saying that it definitely had been the man she had seen. UAPD took photos of the newspaper ashes, the burned stump and the surrounding area. The man was arrested for criminal burning, issued a citation with a court date and was released. At approximately noon on Sunday, the owner of the property contacted the officer via phone and stated he would be willing to prosecute for reckless burning. The officer prepared a Victim’s Rights Form for him.
Beer pong and paraphernalia: student takes one for the team
Four students were arrested on Sunday, at 1:55 a.m. for Minors in Possession. One of the students was additionally cited for possession of drug paraphernalia. At 1 a.m., a UAPD officer responded to a reference of a large group of people in a dorm room after a resident assistant suspected possible use of marijuana. On arrival, the officer met with the resident assistant who had reported the incident to UAPD, and detected a strong odor of burning marijuana upon walking in the residence hall. After investigating the area, the officer came to the conclusion that the odor was strongest near one specific room. When he smelled at the door cracks it was even stronger. The officer could also hear voices in the room, but could only make out three or four different voices. The officer knocked on the door of the room, and a man answered. The smell of marijuana became even stronger once the door was opened. He could see another individual behind the man, who quickly moved out of his field of view. A rectangular table with dozens of plastic red cups and beer cans on it were seen in the room. An officer who was also assisting with the incident asked the man who opened the door to step outside. He then ordered the other man who had been seen in the room to come out too. The officer noticed that this individual was carrying what looked like a bong before he had disappeared around the corner. The second officer ordered him to retrieve the bong and put it back where he had grabbed it, the man complied. One of the individuals finally gave the officers permission, reluctantly, to enter his room. An officer entered with the student following behind them. As one of them turned into the living room, he could see a man sitting in the kitchen, half-hidden by the island counter. The officer told the man to exit the apartment, which he did. Another man stood up from underneath the counter, who was also ordered to exit the apartment. The officer and the student who let him into the apartment went through the remainder of the rooms and did not find anyone else hiding. Miranda Rights were read to all four individuals separately and they were interviewed. The first man told the officer that he does not smoke marijuana; he was only in the room hanging out with the three others, who were his friends. He admitted to having a bit of alcohol to drink. He did not know if there were any illegal drugs or paraphernalia in the room. He had watery, bloodshot eyes and smelled of intoxicants. The second man told the officer that he smoked marijuana a few hours ago in the room where they found him. He was unsure if he used the bong that was seen in the room in order to smoke it. An unknown person that had previously been in the room had provided the marijuana. He stated that there were about 15 people there before the officers arrived. The student also admitted to drinking. The third man told the officer he hadn’t smoked marijuana in a couple of weeks. He also stated that he had not been drinking, but the officer noticed watery red eyes. This man was a resident of the dorm room, and said that the bong was brought over to his place by one of the people that had left before the officer arrived. He also stated that one of the girls who had come to his room had brought the beer in a backpack. The fourth man told the officer that he could not remember if he smoked marijuana. He could not remember when the last time he smoked marijuana was. He did not know where the bong came from or who bought the alcohol, but stated he believed it was someone from the large group of girls that had arrived earlier. Several dozen cans of beer, some empty and some still filled with varying amounts of beer left in them were found in plain view of the apartment — all cold to the touch. A few dozen red cups were arranged in a “beer pong” style formation on the table and contained different kinds of liquid. Some had the odor of liquor, while others had no odor at all. A “handle” sized bottle of Smirnoff vodka was found in the kitchen. The resident of the apartment opened his fridge for the officers and retrieved a 750 mL bottle of Skyy Vodka. A glass pipe with marijuana residue was found on the kitchen counter next to the Smirnoff bottle. The officer asked each of the four individuals if the bong or pipe belonged to either of them. They all denied it was theirs. After the officer advised them they would all be charged with paraphernalia if no one claimed the responsibility, one of the students then stated that both the bong and pipe were his. All students were arrested for MIP. The man who claimed the bong and pipe was additionally charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. All were cited and released at the scene. The alcohol was thrown away and the officer told the men that the Dean of Students would be notified of what had happened.

Scott’s patience pays off By Mike Schmitz ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Heading into the 2010 season, quarterback Matt Scott’s future at Arizona was uncertain. The 6-foot-3 dual-threat quarterback came to Tucson as a four-star recruit and started the first three games of his sophomore year. But Scott couldn’t keep the starting gig, as Nick Foles emerged as not only the starter, but also Tucson’s cover boy and the Wildcats’ socalled savior. Foles’ face was plastered on every poster and billboard around town, and the Corona, Calif., native was left behind the eight ball — sharing the same year as Foles, with no redshirt eligibility and practically zero chance to shoot up the depth chart. Scott said he “put in a lot of thought,” into transferring and “looked around at a couple schools,” which was only natural given the 6-foot-5, 245-pound Foles standing in his way of playing time. “As a quarterback, there’s one position that starts and there’s not multiple guys rotating in and out so I think it was normal for me to think about transferring,” Scott said. “But at the end of the day, I love Arizona and I wanted to stay here.” Scott decided to remain a Wildcat for the time being, but standing on the sidelines watching was no easy feat. “It was real tough,” Scott said of seeing limited minutes in the last year or so. “I gave all of my power to stay here. I think all odds were against me I feel like, and I did everything in my power to stay here. I don’t know how, I don’t know why, but it turned out for the better.” All of that patience finally came full circle for Scott when Foles went down Saturday with a knee injury that will sideline him for at least a few weeks. Scott called Foles’ injury “unfortunate” and spoke to Foles briefly on Sunday about his health. But there’s no question that af-

Junior Matt Scott was close to transferring earlier in the season, but after an injury to starter Nick Foles, Scott has been handed the keys to the Arizona offense. The junior started the first three games of the 2009 season before being benched in favor of Foles.
ter initially relinquishing the job to Foles, Scott is chomping at the bit to prove what he can do. “I’m really excited. Coming off of last year after the Iowa game, it was really disappointing for me,” Scott said. “Unfortunately Nick got hurt, but that leaves me with another opportunity. I’m really excited for the opportunity, and I’m going to take full advantage of it.” Scott certainly believes in his abilities, and there’s no shortage of confidence coming from his coaches and teammates either. Head coach Mike Stoops has raved about Scott all season long, and starting center Colin Baxter said,
“I have full confidence in him. He’s just like another first string quarterback. He has the talent and he knows what he’s doing back there.” Scott now features a “shorter release” to ensure better accuracy, and also feels more comfortable in the pocket. In years past, he was criticized for fleeing from the pocket too soon, which he fully admits to. “I think my first couple of years I just didn’t really know the offense that well,” Scott said. “When I didn’t see anybody open my first thought was to tuck it and run.” But after another season learning the plays and watching Foles run
Growing up Daniel Bejarano is expected to become a contributor for Arizona men’s basketball this season. The freshman’s turbulent upbringing brought him closer to Robert Arvizu, his fellow freshman teammate this year.
By Kevin Zimmerman ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Daniel Bejarano won’t boast. He’s been through too many life lessons to view his basketball talent as a big deal. “I’m not The Man no more,” the freshman shooting guard said about his place on the Arizona basketball team. “I’m here just to be a role player or whatever player I can be.” The 6-foot-4, 208 pounder out of Phoenix’s North High School committed to the Wildcats after winning back-to-back state championships. He ended his high school career ranked as No. 75 player in his recruiting class, according to Rivals.com. But with so much accomplishment, it’s Bejarano’s journey to Arizona that defines him the most. Since the sixth grade, he’s shared that journey with his new Arizona teammate, walkon guard Robert Arvizu. Sharing a dorm room this year, not much has changed since the pair ’s meeting. Playing against Arvizu’s middle school team, a sixthgrade Bejarano was invited by Arvizu’s older brother, Ray Arvizu Jr., to start practicing with his club team. “I didn’t know anything about club ball,” Bejarano said. “I wasn’t even looking toward the future.” It was the beginning of what would become a blossoming brotherhood, and little did Bejarano know how much he would blossom as a player. He felt a connection with his new teammates, creating a bond so deep with the Arvizu family that he’d soon be living under the roof of Ray Arvizu Sr., the father of Robert and Ray Arvizu Jr. Bejarano is close with his mother, Barbara Butler, and stepfather, but they had other children to care for and Butler wasn’t against the idea of her son living with the Arvizus. “I just thought, ‘hey maybe I should spend the night (at
the offense, Scott said he feels a lot more comfortable in the pocket and doesn’t feel the need to tailor the offense to his strengths. “To me, really I don’t think anything should change,” he said. “I feel real comfortable with what the offense is doing right now, with what the offense has been doing for the past for the past four or five weeks. I just feel real comfortable and I think I can do the same thing Nick was doing.” Despite Scott’s beliefs, there’s no question the offense will have to be altered slightly to get the dual-threat quarterback on the run. He doesn’t have nearly the same arm strength

After that it just went to spending a night, to a week, to a month and it went on. “I just stepped over and said, ‘Hey mom, do you mind if I just live here?’ It was to help her — relief,” Bejarano added. “It was just easier.” At the Arvizu home, Bejarano and Robert Arvizu were joined by future North starters Shabaz Lewis and Kwame Dailey. “First it was difficult,” Robert Arvizu said of living with his
three teammates, not to mention his twin brother, Daniel Arvizu. “Everything that I wanted was cut in half, from going out, to hanging out with friends, to going out to dinner. But once we started doing it, it started getting more fun.” The close bond at home translated to the court, Robert Arvizu said.

as Foles, meaning less deep balls to Juron Criner. Nic Grigsby, Keola Antolin and Greg Nwoko will most likely all see more carries with Scott under center. But regardless of the changes, Scott is just happy to be back on the field again. He went through a ton of internal struggle when deciding whether or not to stay at Arizona, and whether it’s for two games, or the rest of the season, Scott once again has a shot as a starter. “I’m not sure yet what it is,” Scott said of his opportunity. “I’m just worried about me and worried about this team and getting Ws.”
Nick Foles is hurt. Matt Scott is in. Foles is known for his arm, Scott is known for his feet. Common sense tells us that, with Foles now out indefinitely, Arizona would change its game plan to better suit Scott. But don’t expect a drastic change, if even a noticeable change at all. Speculations have been running wild all over campus and throughout the media that the Wildcats offense will miraculously morph into something else by the time the team faces Washington on Saturday night. Will Arizona become an option team? Will the coaches call for Scott to scramble every other play? Is Juron Criner going to become irrelevant because Scott won’t throw it downfield as often? No, no and no. Imagine you’re running a Broadway show and half way through the show’s season your lead actor has to leave for whatever reason. Do you replace him and then rewrite the entire script to accommodate the new actor’s strengths? No, you plug the new guy into the same role and continue running the same play with, perhaps, a few slight changes. The same holds true for football. The Wildcats are exactly halfway through the regular season and are too far into their scheme that it would be chaotic to try to change things up at this point. You won’t suddenly see an option-heavy offense, Scott will actually be dis-
couraged to run too often, and Juron Criner will still have plenty of touches. Let’s clear something up right away: Matt Scott can run, sure, but he isn’t Denard Robinson from Michigan or Nebraska’s Taylor Martinez. He’s not as fast as them and he isn’t as athletic of them – nobody is, and that’s a good thing. While offenses that feature a run-first quarterback can put up numbers more shocking than that lame Monday Night Football game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans getting higher ratings numbers than the ALCS game between the Yanks and the Rangers, those same offenses are also guaranteed to be completely shut down a few weeks a year. In order to move the ball regularly, especially in the Pacific 10 Conference, you need to be able to pass regularly. Because Scott is a quarterback that hasn’t shown any sort of pocket presence in the games he’s played in the last two years, he does tend to get happy feet and scramble. This is extremely difficult to block for and is a huge contributor to the excess of sacks the Wildcats let up against Washington State, but to Scott’s credit he always looks to pass first while scrambling rather than immediately crossing the line of scrimmage. The most concerning thing to come out of Saturday other than Foles’ knee bending inward was the fact that head coach Mike Stoops said that Scott struggled with his hot reads. A hot read is when the defense is blatantly showing blitz, the wide receiver closest to the blitzing player changes whatever KOSCH, page A7

Persevering through trials and tribulations
Women’s basketball connects to fans on a more personal level
continued from page A6
By Dan Kohler ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT With two weeks remaining until the Arizona women’s basketball team takes the floor at the McKale Center to begin the 2010-11 season, the entire team and coaching staff are looking for new ways to reinvigorate their relationship with their fan base. Step one: personally delivering season tickets to fans that were the first to renew online on the first day of ticket renewals. In large Arizona Athletics vans, the Wildcats toured Tucson last night, going door to door to meet and greet their most loyal supporters. “This is the first experience, especially with the newcomers, of getting out there, shaking hands, smiling and actually touching people who are going to be your biggest fans and biggest supporters,” head coach Niya Butts said before the team took off. “We have to make sure that we are available to the community.” This community outreach, that players and coaches are very excited about continuing, will prove essential to not just creating a solid basketball program, but a two way support system and connection between the players and those who

cheer for them. “These fans get to see that we are passionate about what we do and we care what they think,” Butts said. “We care about how much we can affect them in their lives, once you do that, you find that connection, that bond, and that’s a good thing.” The connection between the players and the fans, however, is only half of what makes a team succeed. Now through two weeks of practice, the Wildcats are still proceed-
ing with the same electric verve they showed their coaches on day one. This enthusiasm and excitement the team brought to the table at the beginning is the way in which Butts and staff are holding the team accountable. “I’m holding them to a different standard because once you show me that we can get there, that’s what I’m looking for everyday,” Butts said. “They’re beginning to understand that, that’s becoming our culture, their taking ownership of the team.”
Offense will simplify, not change

route he was originally supposed to run and instead goes to the spot vacated by the blitzing linebacker or defensive back, giving the quarterback a quick and easy target. Maybe it was rust, but if Scott can’t make those reads against Washington’s tricky and aggressive defense, it could be a long night. With all of this in mind, the only changes I expect to see with Scott un-
der center are more run plays – to the running backs, not intentional runs from the quarterback – and the return of the wide receiver screen game. Last year Arizona opened its season throwing quick screens, bubble screens and rocket screens as often as Stoops yelled at an official. They’re high-percentage passes, easy to run and executed quickly enough that they can turn into big plays.
Screens are, in essence, long hand offs. They’re the easiest plays a quarterback has to make. They were extremely prevalent at the beginning of last season but disappeared as the season went on and have been generally non-existent this year outside of a few to Criner here and there. Incidentally, Scott was the quarterback when Arizona ran most of its screens.
rived. “It’d be a dynasty team,” Bejarano thought. “We just tried to make it a known school. That’s what we tried to do, is just win basketball games. “That’s what we did.” And top college programs came calling. Bejarano committed to the Texas Longhorns before his senior year in high school. Meanwhile, he had become closer to his estranged father, former Carl Hayden High School hoops standout Damion Gosa. But in June 2009 tragedy struck. Playing at the NBA Player ’s Association Top 100 Camp, Bejarano’s coach took him aside, to a psychiatrist. His mother was on the phone. Gosa, in an apparent home invasion, had been shot and killed in his Phoenix apartment. “That basically changed everything,” Bejarano said. “Everything happens for a reason.” To Bejarano, basketball is just that — basketball. Family was more important, and that led to his decommitment from Texas in October 2009. He wanted to be closer to home, Ray Arvizu Jr. said at the time, and was familiar with Arizona after being recruited early in the process by former head coach Lute Olson. A week later, after being contacted by Miller — not to mention an in-home visit gone wrong, which led ASU coach Herb Sendek to pull a scholarship offer soon after — Bejarano was a Wildcat. Today, by all accounts,
he’s the same humble person as the sixth grader where the story began. And with a potential future in professional basketball, his work ethic remains the same. Ray Arvizu Jr. told the Arizona Republic he was proud a sixth-grade Bejarano with a “third-grade reading ability” became a top reader in his class by his junior year of high school. During the guard’s brief time in Tucson, Miller echoed a similarly vast improvement. “Earlier in September, you would question whether he was going to make it through the workouts,” Miller said on media day. “We have a conditioning test that we do at the end of the fall — 13 players who ran it. He was number one in terms of the fastest. I think it says a lot about him. “He’s improving rapidly.” Through Bejarano’s whirlwind into basketball stardom, his father ’s death and a violent car accident over the summer that he walked away from without serious injury, he’s gone through more than most. He also admitted that he’s grown up, though it appears his core hasn’t changed. Simple things like getting his driver ’s license, Bejarano said, were points in life he never dreamed of reaching as a kid — quite an accomplishment, he thought. “Just stuff like that,” he added, “I would see people like (former Wildcat) Channing Frye, everyone on TV … But I would never put myself there. “Now I’m here.”
Pac-10 Power Rankings By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Halfway through the 2010 season, the Pacific 10 Conference has narrowed its focus, dividing into the elite, a highly contested middle and those teams that continue to fall deeper. Although Oregon remains perfect on the season and No. 2 in BCS standings, one slip up could change the outlook of the entire conference.
No. 1 — Oregon Ducks (6-0, 3-0 Pac-10):
This season, the No. 1 AP spot hasn’t been so kind to those who occupy it. The Ducks are hoping history won’t repeat itself. There’s only been one instance in which the No. 1 AP lost three weeks in a row in 1960 when Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri each lost their positions as the No. 1 team. Sound familiar? October is an eerie month, Duck fans.
No. 2 — Stanford Cardinal (5-1, 2-1):
Andrew Luck and the Cardinal haven’t fallen off yet this conference season, and its schedule doesn’t look too difficult on the horizon. With just the one loss to conference leader Oregon,
Stanford has been able to win the blowouts (vs. Wake Forest) and the close games (vs. USC). If the Ducks slip in any conference game, Stanford will be right there to take the Pac-10 title.
No. 3 — Arizona Wildcats (5-1, 2-1):
Mums the word on quarterback Nick Foles’ injury. Coaches won’t say exactly what’s wrong or how long it will keep him out of the huddle. But Arizona has enough pieces in place to still be legitimate contenders in the conference, even without Foles calling the shots. The fact that the Wildcats host Washington this weekend will help with adapting to Matt Scott at quarterback, and give the defense the momentum it needs to shut down Jake Locker.
The words ‘blow out’ would be an understatement. The Trojans have been fickle all season, at their best contenders during their losses against Washington and Stanford and at their worst worrisome in their wins at Hawaii and against Virginia. The 48-14 win over Cal was convincing enough to get them to the .500 mark in conference play and out of the four-way tie for the No. 5 spot.
HE READS THE DAILY WILDCAT. YOU SHOULD, TOO.
ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
No. 4 — USC Trojans (5-2, 2-2):
No. 5 — Oregon State Beavers (3-3, 2-1):
With Oregon State comes the beginning of the jumbled middle in the Pac-10. Oregon State beat ASU, but then lost to Washington, who then lost to ASU. So which of the three really deserves the No. 5 spot? Given the Beavers win against Arizona and two tough losses at then-Top-10s TCU and Boise State, Oregon State gets the best of the rest spot.
No. 6 — Washington Huskies (3-3, 2-1):
The uncertainty continues. Which Jake Locker will show up this week? Will it be the quarterback that threw five touchdowns and nearly 300 yards last week or the quarterback that had a career-low 71 yards and just one touchdown in the beginning of the year?
No. 7 — ASU Sun Devils (3-3, 1-2):
ASU comes off its bye week at Cal, which would seem problematic if the Bears could get it figured out on offense. Not saying that it will be a walk in the park for ASU, but the Sun Devils have shown flashes of competitiveness this season; a win in this game could help ASU rise in conference perception.
No. 8 — UCLA Bruins (3-3, 1-2):
The Bruins have had a bye week to prepare for undefeated Oregon but it remains to be seen if it will do UCLA any good. Going up against the nation’s top team in terms of total offense, with a defense that has given up at least 31 points in all of its games this season, it doesn’t look good for the Bruins, but maybe they can bring some of that No.1-slayer luck with them to Eugene, Ore.
No. 9 — California Golden Bears (3-3, 1-2):
Two words for Cal’s performance at USC: utterly embarrassing. The Trojans put up 42 points by half time, while the Bears were kept off the scoreboard. The little amount of buzz Cal created when it nearly upset Arizona and then beat UCLA is all but gone after such a dismal performance.
No. 10 — Washington State Cougars (1-6, 0-4):
Although they showed some tenacity against Arizona over the weekend, the Cougars still remain at the bottom of the Pac.

Jenna Stevens has this advice for UA students facing a tough job market: “Your job search is what you make of it! Ask teachers, family, friends, anyone. You never know if they know someone who may know of a position, and if you make a good impression on them, they may mention your name. Nothing is impossible, even in this market. Good luck!” Jenna speaks from experience. After several competitive ﬁrst and second interviews for positions she didn’t ultimately get offered, Jenna met the father of a young woman interested in trying out for UA cheerleading. The father knew the VP of…well, let’s let Jenna tell her networking story!

Rangers only one win NFL to suspend away from World Series players for dangerous hits
McClatchy-Tribune NEW YORK — The amazing Cliff Lee dazzled again for eight innings Monday night and was ready to deliver a knockout blow in the ninth inning. But his Texas Rangers teammates took care of the New York Yankees for him with the biggest postseason inning in club history. The legend of Lee, though, grew again during Game 3 of the American League Championship Series. He never gave the reigning world champs a chance, and now the Rangers have a 2-1 edge in their pursuit of the pennant. Lee allowed two hits in eight scoreless innings, striking out 13, and Josh Hamilton sparked the offense with a two-run homer in the first and a leadoff double in a sixrun ninth to lift the Rangers to an 8-0 victory over New York. Game 4 is scheduled for 7:07 CDT on Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium with the Rangers needing two wins in the last four games of the best-of-seven series to advance to the World Series. Lee, who is now 7-0 in his postseason career, will be waiting again for a possible Game 7. Whenever he pitches again, the Rangers will be expecting more mound brilliance. "You hate to say that's what your expectation is of him, but that's what it is because he's been so consistent that way," team president Nolan Ryan said. "He's the most consistent pitcher I've ever seen." The Rangers staked Lee to a first-inning lead, just as they did in Game 5 of the division series, when Hamilton sent an Andy Pettitte cutter into the right-field seats. Michael Young, who singled to cap a nine-pitch at-bat, also scored. Lee took over from there. The Yankees didn't have a base runner until there were two outs in the fourth, when Lee issued his first walk of this postseason. He allowed his first hit an inning later, a two-out broken-bat flare by Jorge Posada.

Brett Gardner started the sixth with a hit and reached second with no outs. Lee responded by retiring the next nine hitters and was at 122 pitches after eight innings. He would have tried for the complete game,manager RonWashington said, but the Rangers' offense put the game away in the ninth. Hamilton started the rally with an opposite-field double against left-handed specialist Boone Logan, and scored two batters later when Nelson Cruz grounded a single through a drawn-in infield. Four of the next five Rangers reached, and consecutive hits by Mitch Moreland and Elvis Andrus and a wild pitch turned a 4-0 lead into a blowout. "You know, as good as Cliff is, you want to keep going," said Young, who was 3 for 5. The Rangers went to Neftali Feliz
in the ninth instead of Lee, who had done enough, to cap their fourth road win of the postseason. The 13 strikeouts matched a careerhigh for Lee, and he became the first pitcher in major-league history to record three straight double-digit strikeout games in a single postseason. Lee improved to 3-0 this postseason with a 0.75 ERA, and he has 34 strikeouts and one walk in 24 innings. He hasn't allowed a run in his past 14 innings. "Any time you can get that deep in the game and not give up any runs in the postseason, that's huge," he said. "Josh hitting that home run in the first inning made things a lot easier, that's for sure." Tommy Hunter will start Game 4 against A.J. Burnett with the Rangers in a strong position. Of the previous 29 holders of a 2-1 ALCS lead, 22 have gone on to win the series.
In the wake of several helmetto-helmet hits from Sunday’s NFL games, some of which caused injuries, the league will immediately begin suspending players for dangerous and flagrant hits, it was announced Tuesday. There could also be suspensions handed down as a result of some of Sunday’s hits. Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson suffered a concussion after being slammed in the helmet by Atlanta cornerback Dunta Robinson, and Browns receivers Joshua Cribbs and Mohamed Massaquoi were injured on hits by Steelers linebacker James Harrison. The hit on Massaquoi is being reviewed by the NFL. Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather’s hit on Ravens tight end Todd Heap will also be examined. NFL vice president of football operations Ray Anderson, who is in charge of enforcing safety rules, made it clear Monday that the league will adopt a no tolerance policy for these types of hits, and did not rule out the possibility of suspensions from the weekend’s games. Anderson clarified earlier Tuesday that the league is not considering any change to existing rules, but will more rigorously enforce them. He also said in an interview on ESPN Radio that referees will be given clearer guidelines as to when a player should be ejected from a game after a vicious hit. “We need to get our players firmly in line with the current rules,” Anderson said. “What we’re trying to make sure our players understand is that you should know the rules. The
coaches know the rules, the players should know the rules. And so if you are in violations of the rules _ particularly one of those trying to protect against head, neck injuries _ we’re going to hold you to a higher standard.” He added: “We are just going to enforce the existing rules much more to the letter of the law so we can protect our players. If it’s an illegal hit under the rules, then you’re going to be held accountable.” When asked specifically about Meriweather’s hit, in which he launched himself at Heap, Anderson said: “That in our view is something that was flagrant, it was egregious. And effective immediately, that’s going to be looked at at a very aggressive level, which could include suspension without pay.” Anderson said that officials have the authority to eject players in those situations, and that the league will communicate with officials“so their authority to eject will be clarified.” Anderson said he believes administering the rules currently in place won’t diminish the physical aspect of football that many fans find popular. “We understand this is not just about the NFL,” Anderson said. “This is about safety at our level, at the college level, at the high school level, at the pee wee level, because we are the standard bearer and we are committed to safety at the highest level. “So we will take all the criticism and all the backlash against those that say we are acting too aggressively in this regard. We are not going to be apologetic. We are not going to be defensive about it. We are going to protect our players and hopefully players at the lower levels as well by example.”
