Fourth UA guitar fest unites stars, students

Ricardo Pereyda scooped up shreds of navy blue wool from what was once his grandfather’s U.S. Air Force uniform and placed them into an old Army uniform pocket, mixing them with shreds of his own retired Army uniform. Pereyda, a senior studying

public management and policy and president of the UA chapter of Student Veterans of America, was one of three veterans who attended the first day of a Combat Paper Project workshop on Monday. Drew Cameron, an Army veteran, started the project in 2007 after learning about the history of traditional Western-hand paper. The project had its beginnings in

San Francisco, but Cameron now spends his time going to various communities, helping them make paper out of the uniforms. The idea of turning retired military uniforms into paper to create artwork was inspired by conversations with friends, Cameron said.


GOING BOWLIN’ Arizona football gains bowl eligibility after defeating Colorado 56-31

The UA’s Fourth International Tucson Guitar Festival this week is giving guitar students the chance to play in the presence of world-class musicians. The weeklong event, presented through the UA School of Music and Tucson Guitar Society, incorporates masterclasses, workshops, competitions and recitals, while promoting a stage to learn and perform. “It mostly just becomes a week where guitar is the priority,” said Misael Barraza Diaz, a guitar performance graduate student who hosted a workshop on Flamenco guitar. “It’s the highlight of the event in every form or shape, so for guitarists it’s a utopia … you’re just surrounded by it.” The “guitar utopia” is highlighted by performances from worldrenowned, Grammy-award winning guitarists the Assad Brothers. “They’re incredible, it’s really just an honor to have them here,” Diaz said. “They’re really probably the very best duo of classical guitarists we have in the world right now. Not only that, but they’re amazing solo guitarists too, so it’s just amazing how much music they can produce.” The Brazilian-born brothers, Sergio and Odair, have been


little over a year ago, Rich Rodriguez arrived for the first time in Tucson as the new head coach of the Arizona football program. The Wildcats were in the middle of a 4-8 season, and weren’t heading to a bowl for the first time since 2007. Before talking about anything else, Rodriguez sat down with his new players and discussed the pain and disappointment they felt sitting at home while 70 other teams played in a bowl game. “If you’re not one of ’em, it makes it for a long December,” Rodriguez said. “I know, I’ve been there.” Now jump ahead to this

Saturday. After the Wildcats’ 56-31 thumping of a terrible Colorado team, the massive disappointment the players felt last season is wiped clean — Arizona is bowl eligible and should be playing this holiday season, even if they somehow collapse in the final two games of the season. “It feels great,” senior receiver Dan Buckner said. “I’m nearing the end of my college career and going into (Saturday) we had three games for sure. And to get that extra one hopefully — if they pick us to go a bowl game — it feels good to

A group of students in the Eller College of Management have been working with the Tucson Village Farm to promote its annual Harvest Festival, which was held on Saturday. Tucson Village Farm is a nonprofit organization associated with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. While the farm is technically part of the UA, it is not financed by the UA budget and gets its funding from donations and grants. “Our goal is to teach people how to grow food and how to harvest and eat food, and how to make healthy choices in their life,” said Elizabeth Sparks, who works with the Pima County cooperative extension right next to the gardens. “We want people to be healthy and happy.” The Harvest Festival was intended to teach children the benefits of healthy eating. The festival featured a farmers’ market, free samples, cooking

demonstrations and a petting zoo, as well as live music and games. The group of five Eller College students created a flier for the farm as well as a public relations and marketing guide for the farm to use for future events. The effort was part of the Business Administration class. Other students in the class did different tasks for the farm, such as creating QR codes which visitors could scan to learn more about healthy eating. “Tucson Village Farm seems like a great organization,” said Terrence O’Connor, an accounting junior and one of the five students promoting the event. “It’s really cool how they’re teaching kids how to eat healthy and grow food.” James Ianni, a high school student who regularly volunteers with the farm, said he liked the idea of having a place available for people to grow their own food and learn about healthy eating. “I think it’s amazing, the idea behind it is great,” he said. “The fact that it exists is incredible, that there is something like this out there for kids to get involved in growing their own food.”

The duo, which has performed at each of the past three festivals, is renowned for their blend of classical music and Brazilian heritage, according to Diaz. Diaz himself is a recognized guitarist, having tied for first in a competition at the 2010 National Festival of Flamenco in addition to being awarded second at the Sholin Guitar Competition for UA graduate students. “I developed a comfort with the instrument and the style itself that allows me to say stuff that electrical guitar doesn’t necessarily capture,” Diaz said. “It’s a very personal interpretation every time so you really have to be listening to yourself to make a statement.” While the genre is a means of expression for Diaz, he said authentic flamenco guitarists are becoming a dying breed. “Good flamenco is hard to find … especially in the U.S.,” Diaz said. “It’s a very jealous art in that sense.” Tucson Guitar Society’s addition to organizing the event has allowed the festival to add several new components, said Gabriel Navia, a musical theory graduate student.

“There are a lot of workshops, and I guess that’s one of the important things,” Navia said. “Adding a lot of workshops and students’ classes and especially recitals that’s just making the festival bigger and bigger.” Navia said the weeklong event is a great time to rub elbows with and seek advice from established performers like the Assads, in addition to Chilean classical guitarist Carlos Perez, who has won numerous international accolades from his eight records and is also showcased during the week. Students in the School of Music are looking forward to experiencing the sheer scale of events planned for the week. “I love the variety of events,” said Leandra Hubka, a musical and classical guitar performance graduate student. “It’s not just concerts, it’s a lot of variety, you get to see a lot of students performing, playing, concerts and workshops.” The festival, which kicked off Saturday with a doctoral student recital, features the Assad Brothers’ recital Nov. 13 and 14 at Holsclaw Hall, before culminating with Perez’s recital Sunday in the same location. Those interested in attending a recital or participating in a workshop are encouraged to visit the UA School of Music’s homepage online. “Not only do you get to play for really great guitarists, but you get to see other people play for them,” Diaz said, on the week’s events. “It’s just a pretty large learning experience.”

Sewing up hope, relief for Sandy victims Two students hope to raise funds for American Red Cross through T-shirt project

KYLE MITTAN Arizona Daily Wildcat

Although the brunt of Hurricane Sandy’s damage has fallen thousands of miles away on the East Coast, two UA students are working to provide financial relief to the area one T-shirt at a time. The project, called UofAid, was organized in early November by Bill Distler, an elementary education senior, and Zachary Poll, a business management junior. Brothers in the Beta Theta Pi fraternity, the pair started the initiative in order to support recovery in the wake of the disaster, which has indirectly affected students with families on the East Coast. “I saw all the destruction … of the East Coast,” Distler said, “And knowing people from that region and how they were affected, I really wanted that region to be helped out.” Distler added that his older brother, also a member of the same fraternity, was part of a similar relief effort in response to the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Distler said he wanted to do something along the same lines. While the two knew that their chapter would do an effective job marketing the effort, Poll said they have been trying to branch out as

much as possible to make it not seem too exclusive to the greek community, and have removed all greek affiliation from the project. “At first we wanted to market it through us being Beta, and have it be a greek thing,” Poll said. “But then we came up with the idea that maybe we’re not going to sell that many shirts that way, and this really should be a whole U of A kind of thing.” The shirts feature the project’s name across the chest and a graphic on the back of a map of the U.S., with first aid crosses in Arizona and along the East Coast to represent the outreach. The initial design was done by Brad Taylor, a junior studying nutritional sciences and chemistry. The shirts are now being marketed through Facebook and on fliers, as well as through various clubs and organizations on campus, Distler said. They can also be viewed on, where people can reserve one for $15. Distler and Poll’s goal is 237 shirt reservations by Thanksgiving Day, which would raise $1,000 after manufacturing costs and expenses for Tee Spring to make the shirts. If the goal isn’t met by Nov. 22, those who have reserved a shirt won’t be charged. Otherwise, the shirts will be distributed to buyers on the UA Mall or delivered to sororities and

Storm claims 43rd life in New York MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

NEW YORK — A 77-year-old grandfather who slipped on wet stairs inside his beachfront housing complex became the 43rd New York City resident to die as a result of Superstorm Sandy, whose effects continued to be felt across the region Monday as basic services and public transportation crept toward normalcy. More than 1,800 city residents remained in shelters, unable to return to homes damaged by the storm or still without heat and electricity. But

for the first time since Sandy made landfall on Oct. 29, the number of households without power in affected states dropped below 100,000. As of Monday morning, the Department of Energy said 88,882 customers in New Jersey, New York, and West Virginia remained in the dark. New York was the worst affected, with 79,744 outages reported. Officials of the Long Island Power Authority said they expected that 99 percent of their customers would have power back by the end of the day Tuesday. In another post-Sandy first, officials

Monday reopened to limited traffic the Gov. Hugh L. Carey Tunnel — formerly known as the BrooklynBattery Tunnel — a major artery under the East River connecting Manhattan to Brooklyn. Workers will continue trying to repair damage from 43 million gallons of salt water that poured into the country’s longest under-river vehicle passage. “It was filled floor to ceiling for more than a mile with water and debris,” said the chairman of the city’s Metropolitan Transit Authority, Joseph Lhota. “No one has ever faced a challenge like this.”

guide them to their apartment. Before she could return, he had slipped. Neighbors found him with wounds to his head and his body, paralyzed from the neck down. McSwain, a retired custodian at the New York Police Department Academy, died of his injuries at a hospital Saturday. In announcing McSwain’s death, police also released a detailed accounting of some of the rescues that took place at the height of the storm, as electrical transformers exploded and dumped live wires into fast-rising water.

Limited train service resumed linking Manhattan with New Jersey and Long Island. In New Jersey, gas rationing that had been in effect for more than a week was to be lifted Tuesday. The latest storm victim, Albert McSwain, lived in a housing project in the Rockaways that was among those left without power. According to his daughter, Allison Lockett, who lived with him, the two went out for a walk on Oct. 31. When they returned to the building, its stairway dark and wet, Lockett told her father to wait while she ran upstairs to get a flashlight to

Battles in Syria drive many across border to Turkey MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE

mcclatchy tribune

A SYRIAN CIVILIAN DUCKS and runs to avoid potential sniper fire in the old city of Aleppo, where rebels continue to battle the Syrian government on Nov. 8, 2012.

RAS AL AYN, Syria — Thousands of people fled Ras al Ayn Monday for the safety of Turkey as the battle between Syrian rebels and government troops for control of this border city raged for a fifth day. Across the border in Ceylanpinar, Turkey, loudspeakers warned residents to stay indoors as Syrian jets and artillery raked rebel positions just a few hundred yards from Turkish territory, their shock waves shattering windows. At least one Syrian shell reportedly landed in Ceylanpinar. Turkish soldiers watched from foxholes and tried to help the refugees, who crossed the border unimpeded except for some who became tangled in barbed wire. Most were ferried to a camp about 10 miles away by buses provided by the Turkish government, which made trip after trip throughout the day. More than 100,000 Syrians are housed in refugee camps in Turkey, and thousands more have fled there without registering with the Turkish government. On Friday, more than 10,000 people reportedly fled to Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey — the highest single-day total of refugees since the conflict began. More than 8,000 of those fled to Ceylanpinar from Ras al Ayn. A rebel spokesman in Ras al Ayn said it was possible that many or more fled Monday. Rebels said Syrian government airstrikes had killed at least 18 civilians, and it was unclear how many fighters died. Residents of Ceylanpinar have opened their homes to the refugees, some of whom had tried to return to Syria before fighting prompted them to flee again.

“We have dozens of people staying in our house,” said 17-year-old Orhan Ahmed, who watched the fighting from the Turkish side of the border with friends. Despite the warnings to stay indoors, hundreds of residents were on the streets, watching the bombardment. At least one airstrike hit a predominantly Kurdish neighborhood in Ras al Ayn, which has a sizable Kurdish minority. There were also reports of tensions between fighters and Kurdish militiamen loyal to the United Democratic Party, a Syrian Kurdish party that has close links to the Turkish Kurdish Worker’s Party. The Turkish Kurd party has fought a decades-long war with the Turkish government seeking autonomy for millions of Kurds who live in southern Turkey. In the past few weeks, Syrian rebels and United Democratic Party militiamen have fought each other in northern Syria, including open fighting and tit-for-tat kidnappings in Aleppo, the country’s largest city. Meanwhile, rumors swept rebel ranks that an attack was being planned on Hasaka, the largest city in this northeastern Syrian province of the same name, which has been largely free of rebel activity until the fighting at Ras al Ayn. Hasaka is Syria’s only majority-Kurdish province, and is an ethnic powder keg where tensions between the largely Arab rebels and the United Democratic Party are likely to get worse. The rebel battalions fighting in Ras al Ayn include locals and outsiders. The main battalions appear to belong to a group that calls itself the Strangers of Damascus, and they say they belong to the Free Syrian Army, a group nominally led by defected military officers who live in a refugee camp in southern Turkey.

Never too soon for bipartisan border reform Andres Dominguez Arizona Daily Wildcat


ith elections over and ballots (somewhat) counted, most of us are taking a breather from anything remotely political and getting ready to enjoy the holidays. Others are keeping an eye on the too-close-to-call races while early and provisional ballots are verified and counted throughout the coming days. Yet some are jumping straight back into the fray. Senators Chuck Schumer and Lindsey Graham are among those ready to return to policy-making with proposals for bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform. According to an AP report, Schumer, a Democrat from New York, and Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, have restarted talks with each other after abandoning the effort two years ago over an immigration reform proposal to take to Congress next year. Both acknowledge that a path to citizenship would be part of the solution to long-term reform, albeit with some strings attached, like paying a fine for entering the country illegally and getting background checks. There are other proposals, like increased border security, that are less realistic without addressing related issues like the demand for illegal substances in the United States. But the senators are taking a step in the right direction by approaching the issue in a bilateral manner and agreeing to discuss the matter with each other, rather than preaching to their own choirs, as has been the hallmark of the last two years of Congress. This is an opportune time to address comprehensive immigration reform. With Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s number one priority missed (to make President Barack Obama a one-term president), he and other senators and representatives can turn their focus on to issues that matter, like Graham has. Even though the economy and education lead among issues most important to the Hispanic community in the United States, immigration is bound to grow along with the population. Hispanics make up 16 percent of the American population. In Arizona the number is even higher, at 30 percent. Additionally, the country has already seen beginning steps, albeit slow, to taking on immigration reform as a whole. In 2010, the DREAM Act, legislation to provide a path to citizenship for young immigrants brought to the country illegally by their parents, came as close as ever to passing in Congress. And this year Obama issued the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, allowing DREAM Act-eligible students two-year work permits, given certain qualifications such as having arrived in the United States before turning 16. With his re-election, Obama may well extend the deferred action program through the end of his second term. It is also a chance for him to sincerely address immigration reform, which he failed to do during his first tenure. Despite all the rhetoric, immigration reform seems to have some common ground among citizens, according to an AP exit poll from Election Day. According to the poll, more than 65 percent supported a path to legal status. Even half of all Republicans supported this approach. Only about 30 percent of those polled favored mass deportation, indicating a populace much less divided than the 538 members of Congress. Senators and representatives should reflect the wishes of the people they are elected to represent. Schumer and Graham are taking the first steps to follow that. If 65 percent of the people support a legal path to citizenship for immigrants, then 65 percent of Congress should abide by that and take a serious approach to long-term immigration reform. — Andres Dominguez is a senior studying journalism and political science.

Public figures’ private lives are no one else’s concern Jason Krell Arizona Daily Wildcat


hy do Americans think they deserve to know about high-profile figures’ personal lives? Even worse, why do high-profile figures feel the public is allowed to hold their personal lives against them? No, I’m not talking about Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, or anyone as actually unimportant as them. I’m referring to the recent revelation that former CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus was involved in an extramarital affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell. So what, another big name had an affair — it happens all the time these days, right? But the retired general, in the face of this scandal, resigned from his position as director of the CIA. That was a terrible loss for the organization, and it all happened because Petraeus was fooling around with someone on the side. By no means am I encouraging or even

condoning his behavior, but a soldier as experienced and decorated as Petraeus could have probably done the CIA a lot of good. What’s more, the fact that Petraeus cheated has no bearing on his ability to perform (what was) his job. Still, according to an article from NBC News, Petraeus resigned as a result of his extramarital affair, writing in a letter to the CIA workforce that “Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.” In disclosing the affair, he probably feared the backlash and loss of faith Americans would have in his capabilities to run the CIA as effectively as it needs to be run. But such a loss of faith would be based on nothing other than the assumption that good people don’t make mistakes. Petraeus made an adult decision by resigning — likely to spare anyone from having to make the controversial choice to fire him — but the fact that he felt his resignation was necessary is disappointing. Granted, there could be other factors at play. Petraeus is set to testify over the alleged lacking security in Libya that resulted in the death of three Americans, and maybe he’d rather be known as the guy who resigned for cheating than the guy who resigned for getting three people killed. We won’t know until the hearings are done though, so all anyone has to go off is this so-called scandal. And while the affair

Your views In response to “Speakers voice opinions on student union Chickfil-A at LGBT studies open forum” (by Brittny Mejia, Nov. 8): More liberal bullying. If it isn’t at the franchises, it’s in the classroom. Dan Cathy’s views can be perceived as offensive to some, but I find more offensive and hypocritical is the intolerance of free speech to the point of anger and violence. I am pro-gay marriage and respect alternative lifestyles, but I find that their elitist and intolerant behavior only hurts, not helps, their cause. Shame on you, LGBTQ group, for setting the more “stomach turning” precedent, that free speech only is permitted when they agree with your views, the epitome of selfishness and Fascism. — Guest I was literally appalled and couldn’t read any further after stumbling on (Tom) Buchanan’s statement that many through their purchases at Chik-fil-A are unaware or blindly supporting a cause against LGBTQ and that it turns his stomach every time he walks by Chik-fil-A. Seriously, dude? It infuriates me that equal rights are highly emphasized and advocated, yet when exercised, in this case by a Christian member, results in criticisms and threats. Is it that everyone is free to exercise their rights with the exception to Christians because their beliefs just doesn’t harmonize well with that of society’s? That to me is just plain right ridiculous! I’m a Christian and although I am conservative about the matter concerning gay marriage, it doesn’t mean that I see people who are part of LGBTQ any different. In fact, I have relatives who are and

shines a light on Petraeus’ character (or apparent lack thereof ), what it really needs to do is be used to open discourse on the way Americans react to these situations. It’s as though people have to be infallible, mistakes can only be made as a child and any adult who screws up shouldn’t be forgiven. There’s no such thing as second chances, it just turns out elementary school teachers were lying to everyone. It also has to do with entitlement and the idea that Americans think they have a right to know what a person like Petraeus is up to — a right that doesn’t exist. Yes, he did have an important job, and the public does deserve to know what he’s doing (except for the fact that the CIA is an organization that requires a lot of secrecy as is), but anything not work-related isn’t anyone else’s damn business but his own. Frankly, this shouldn’t even be in the news at all. Aren’t there more important things to talk about? Didn’t a hurricane just devastate parts of the East Coast, leaving thousands vulnerable to approaching storms? A man’s mistake in the privacy of his own bedroom doesn’t trump all the real things worth talking about. — Jason Krell is the copy chief for the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

they are aware of the fact that their choice of lifestyle, yes choice, is not acceptable in most Christian faith (some denominations are supportive of the issue) yet they are treated equally and given the same respect (but it doesn’t negate the fact that the church condones such manner, but that is for another issue). — Honu Sorry, but giving over $5 million to orgs that support things like forcible abduction of children from gay and lesbian homes to prevent them from being raised by non-straight people is NOT about freedom of religion or freedom of speech. It’s about supporting Chick-fil-A supporting hate and terror. I absolutely support freedom of speech and freedom of religion — this is something very different. — Tom Buchanan Everyone who supports Chick-fil-A hides behind their claims that they support “free speech.” Guess what people, this is NOT a free speech issue. The First Amendment gives EVERYONE the right to criticize and boycott whatever companies and public figures they want. The same people who say they have the First Amendment also disregard it when using religious reasons to keep LGBTQ people from getting married, in order to “save marriage” (whatever that means). THAT is a violation of the First Amendment if there ever was one. — First Amendment lover Actually, it is a free speech issue. The university, as an extension of the federal government, would be in violation of the First Amendment if they removed the Chick-Fil-A from campus as a punishment for Mr. Cathy’s comments. — thekevinshow1990 Why are they still going on about this when the owner of Chick Fil A already said he’s not giving any more money to anti-gay groups? — Javier

Police Beat MAXWELL J. MANGOLD Arizona Daily Wildcat

At least he’s old enough to vote

A University of Arizona Police Department officer arrested a partially clothed student covered in red and blue paint on Nov. 7 at 12:15 a.m. He was arrested on charges of underage drinking near the Villa Del Puente Residence Hall, where the officer initially heard him yelling. As the officer approached, the student said he was “OK” and didn’t require any assistance. The man had slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol. The man appeared to be under the legal drinking age, but said he was 21 years old when the officer asked. The officer then asked him to provide identification, and the man provided a California driver’s license and replied he was only 18. The student said he was covered in paint and shirtless because he’d attended an off-campus election party. While at the party, he was handed two shots of vodka by strangers whom he couldn’t identify, he said. The man was eventually escorted back to his dorm room.

Strange man does nothing

A UAPD officer spotted a suspicious man near a trash compactor in the parking lot east of Centennial Hall at 11:20 p.m. on Nov. 7. The man, a UA student, was on his cellphone, opening the door to the brick-walled trash compactor when the officer spotted him. When asked what he was doing, the subject replied “Ah, nothing,” and was uncooperative with the officer. When asked for identification, the man displayed his CatCard, and dropped a rock that was “roughly bigger than his own hand,” according to the report. The officer then patted the man down after asking him to take off the backpack he was carrying. Nothing was found on him and the student said only books and a laptop were inside the bag. The officer asked to look inside the backpack, but the student refused, saying he needed a warrant. The suspect refused to give more details when the officer said he looked suspicious carrying around the rock. The man did tell the officer that he does bizarre things and that he was very curious about the enclosure. Although the officer thought the man was acting suspiciously, he never broke any laws and was released back to his dorm without any further problems.

Man abandons truck over parking fines

A UAPD officer went to preserve peace in lot a UA parking lot at 9:35 a.m. on Nov. 7. A non-UA affiliate with a suspended Arizona driver’s license had called the UA Parking and Transportation office, telling them a tow truck was coming to remove the wheel boot placed on his car by PTS. When the officer arrived he was met by a PTS supervisor who told him the driver had received nine PTS citations on his pickup since October 2012, totaling $350 in fines. The man confirmed the truck was his, but denied saying a tow truck was coming to remove the boot. After discussing alternative options, the man said he was taking his things from the vehicle, and told the supervisor that PTS could take the truck, adding that he wasn’t willing to pay the fines. The supervisor told the man that in order to have the boot removed from his vehicle, he needed to pay the fines within 24 hours. The suspect then removed his belongings from the car and left the area. Police Beat is compiled from official University of Arizona Police Department reports.

Lunar and Planetary Laboratory Colloquium - ‘Integrating Lunar Sample and Remote Sensing Data to Understand the Asymmetry of the Moon’ Justin Hagerty, research geologist with the United States Geological Survey, will give a talk titled “Integrating Lunar Sample and Remote Sensing Data to Understand the Asymmetry of the Moon.” The near and far sides of the moon exhibit striking differences with respect to their compositional and physical characteristics. One of the limiting factors in understanding the moon’s asymmetry is our limited knowledge about the lunar far side. In order to learn more about the far side of the moon and to understand the potential causes for the moon’s asymmetry, it is necessary to leverage the strengths of both sample and remote sensing data. By combining compositional analyses of lunar basalts (returned by the Apollo missions) with global gamma ray spectroscopy, it has been possible to investigate the interior of the lunar far side, which in turn has resulted in a new model for the evolution of our nearest neighbor.

Ka’deem the dream

Running back’s performance against Colorado catapults him near top of national leaderboards

“He was doing a bit of a Nintendo weave,” added head coach Rich Rodriguez. Carey broke the 28-year-old conference record of 357 yards by Washington State’s Rueben Mayes, and the 14-year-old teamrecord of 288 set by ex-Wildcat Trung Canidate. Taking into account an additional 34 receiving yards, Carey gained 400 yards, breaking the 58-year-old school record. Rodriguez was hard-pressed to think of a better single game performance from his coaching career. “My son asked me after the game ‘have you had any guys with that many yards before?’” Rodriguez said. “Kay-Jay Harris got close, but you’d have to look it up.” Harris was a running back for Rodriguez at West Virginia in 2004 when he set a Mountaineers and Big East record with 337 yards and four touchdowns on 25 carries against East Carolina.

If you talk to anyone on the Arizona football team about Ka’Deem Carey, they’ll tell you how he likes to have fun and how much he loves football. In interviews, Carey is always smiling and often laughing. On Saturday, Carey ran wild, setting a Pac-12 and UA record with 366 rushing yards and five touchdowns in a 56-31 win against Colorado. It didn’t come as too much of a surprise for the sophomore Tucson native, who was named the Pac-12’s offensive player of the week for his performance. “When I woke up [Saturday] I had a great feeling,” Carey said. “I just put it in my head that I wanted the school record. I didn’t wanna tell nobody that, but that’s just how I woke up.” Here’s a look at Carey’s performance and what it means for Arizona’s season:

Pac-12 bowl picture could look messy KYLE JOHNSON Arizona Daily Wildcat

GUARD/FORWARD KEVIN PARROM is considered Arizona’s sixth man, a role he’s earned because of his versatility and experience.

UA basketball still a work in progress Cameron Moon

Only two regular season games remain in the regular college football season, and with Arizona now bowl eligible at 6-4, it’s time for fans to go out and buy some winter clothes because the Wildcats are going bowling this holiday season. At the moment, seven Pac-12 teams have qualified, with ASU one win away and Utah two away from eligibility. If both of those teams become eligible, things could get pretty messy in the bowl picture, since the conference only has seven affiliated bowls. That doesn’t mean that only the top seven teams will be playing come December and January, but the other two invites might be a little bit random. The Military Bowl, for example, is a match-up between the ACC and Army. That match-up isn’t happening, though, since Army is already eliminated from bowl play and the ACC might not even finish with enough eligible teams. In cases like that, the bowl committee will be free to choose whomever it wants, and it looks like a team or two from the Pac-12 might be available. Where things can get really complicated in the Pac-12 is with the Rose Bowl. Stanford beat Oregon State 27-23 this weekend as quarterback Kevin Hogan helped the Cardinal score 13-unanswered points in the second half of his first career start. The win puts Stanford in the driver’s seat for the Rose Bowl — if they get past their game against Oregon — while the Beavers were eliminated from the Pac-12 title game and most likely any BCS bowl. The real problem would arise if the Ducks win out because they’ll be going to the BCS Championship game. In order to do that though, they’ll need to beat Stanford, Oregon State and either USC or UCLA in the title game. If that happens, none of the Pac-12 teams might qualify for the Rose Bowl, which requires being ranked in the top 14 of the BCS standings. A loss to No. 2 Oregon shouldn’t be a killer, but Stanford finishes its season by playing UCLA, so one of them will lose again. The chips will need to fall perfectly if the Ducks end up playing for the title. But even if someone catches the lucky

break, it still might not be enough. An undefeated Notre Dame team will probably steal the conference’s bid and play the Big 10 champ, and deservedly so. If a Pac-12 team doesn’t play in Pasadena, Calif., that doesn’t spell good news for Arizona in terms of its quality of bowl either. Right now the Wildcats sit at seventh in the conference, and since their closest foes are Washington — who’s ranked No. 25 in the BCS standings — and USC, it’ll be tough for the Wildcats to jump either of them. If things remain the way they are, Arizona will be playing in the New Mexico Bowl on Dec. 15 against the Mountain West’s third or fourth place team, Boise State or Air Force, at the moment. If the Wildcats manage to move up, which is unlikely unless a Pac-12 team gets a Rose Bowl bid, they’d play in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl and take on Navy in San Francisco, Calif. The Las Vegas Bowl, which is for the Pac-12’s fifth place team, is still a possibility, but Arizona would need a lot of help to make that happen. Head coach Rich Rodriguez said the team is on a ladder of elevating its status right now — at the moment they’ve qualified, but another win and a bowl is guaranteed, and two wins puts them in an even higher profile bowl. Moving up from the New Mexico Bowl also gives the Wildcats the added boost of practice time. The Dec. 15 date is by far the earliest of the bowl games the conference is affiliated with, and if Arizona receives an invitation to a bigger bowl, it’ll be rewarded with an extra couple days of practice.

he curtain was drawn back on Sunday, and head coach Sean Miller’s Arizona Wildcats were displayed for the first time in a game that mattered. Watchers might have expected more in an 82-73 win against Charleston Southern — a school many have never heard of. Arizona showed what it’s capable of against the Buccaneers, but also that there’s much work left to do. First things first, lower those lofty expectations beset on Arizona before the first practice even took place. Everyone’s well aware that this team has the size and offensive talent to win basketball games. What people weren’t as conscious of was Arizona’s versatility in its lineup, which will make a difference as the season progresses. A year ago, Miller was reduced to playing only eight players after suspensions and injuries ravaged the Wildcats. Now, Arizona can go nine or 10 deep. But the team’s functionality is still a work in progress. Although Arizona only turned the ball over eight times on offense, there were plenty of miscommunications concerning where the ball was supposed to go, which Miller called “disappointing” after the game.

Women’s basketball travels to UNLV for second game of season LUKE DAVIS Arizona Daily Wildcat

The Arizona women’s basketball team is heading to Las Vegas, Nev. for its second game of the season, against the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels on Tuesday, Nov 13. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m. PT. “This game will be a tough game,” said head coach Niya Butts. “But if we continue to play hard it should be a good game.” The Running Rebels went 22-10 in the 2011-12 season, and posted a home record of 12-5. UNLV only returns one

starter from last season in senior guard Kelli Thompson, who averaged 14 points and three rebounds a game last season. This will be the eighth time these two schools have met: Arizona is 4-3 all-time against UNLV, but is 1-3 in Las Vegas. Arizona defeated UNLV in 2011 by a score of 62-58, as then junior guard Davellyn Whyte led the way for the Wildcats with 21 points and four assists. The Wildcats won their season opener against CSU Bakersfield, 71-50. Of the

four Wildcats who scored in double digits, Whyte led the way with 16 points and surpassed 2,000 career points. Senior guard Cheshi Poston added 14 points while junior transfer forward Alli Gloyd and freshman guard Keyahndra Cannon brought in 11 and 10 points, respectively. “Anytime you can get anyone to score the basketball it’s a good thing,” Butts said. “We are a very unselfish team which is good. We are playing hard and people are making plays, and that’s always a positive sign as a

coach.” Arizona leaned heavily on its rebounding in their first game of the season, outrebounding the Roadrunners 62-41. Junior forward Erica Barnes led the Wildcats with 12 boards. Butts was pleased with the Wildcats’ rebounding in their first game, but was less than pleased with their 25 turnovers. “We still are turning the ball over a little too much,” Butts said. Iman Hamdan contributed reporting to this article.

He then acknowledged that the Wildcats did score 82 points, which they only topped five times last season — so the offense was not the problem. “Where we struggled is on defense,” Miller said. The Wildcats’ defense was strong inside, as CSU was unable to score a single point in the paint, but every time the Buccaneers drove inside, there seemed to be an open shooter along the three-point line. Charleston Southern only made 10 three-pointers of 28, but many of those misses were open looks that could have dropped. If the defense is still a work in progress, so is the lineup and the play of the frontcourt players. Miller’s starting lineup included senior guard Mark Lyons, junior guard Nick Johnson, Solomon Hill and freshmen Grant Jerrett and Kaleb Tarczewski. Jerrett and Tarczeweski played only 36 combined minutes for the game, and both players’ minutes decreased as Miller went to a smaller, more veteran-laden squad that included senior Kevin Parrom and junior guard Jordin Mayes, who scored 10 points in the first half and was a major factor in Arizona’s first half lead. “In the first half and second half, as we went small, we hit our stride,” Miller said. “The guys who have been through it before, they were more ready.” Miller knew that the veterans needed to be in at the end of the game because of the way they were defending CSU. “Just watching young guys move on defense, guarding perimeter players that were driving,” Miller cited as the reason for giving more playing time to players like Parrom instead of Tarczewski and Jerrett. Charleston Southern was a small team, its tallest player standing at 6-foot-9 and its point guard is listed at a generous 5-foot-8. The Wildcats were forced to adjust to the size difference and found a way to win. While we don’t know much about the Wildcats just yet, we can already tell that they will be able to win in more ways than one, by constantly adjusting. “They will get better by leaps and bounds going through what they went through [Sunday],” Miller said. “We’ll get better too as coaches, defining roles more.” — Cameron Moon is a journalism senior.

him into a tie for second in the nation with 1,381 rushing yards and just 55 yards shy of Nevada’s Stefphon Jefferson. If he can leapfrog Jefferson and Toledo’s David Fluellen, who he’s knotted up with, he would be the UA’s first NCAA rushing champion since 1955. The 18 touchdowns leaves him just four shy of breaking Art Luppino’s 58-year old record of 21 touchdowns. Luppino is considered by many to be one of the best players in Arizona’s history. “He’s going to get the nation’s attention with his performance,” said senior center Kyle Quinn. “It was exciting to block for him.” In the pantheon of the Pac-12’s talented running backs, Carey certainly deserves to be considered one of the best. He is in a battle for a spot on the AllPac-12 first team, which takes two backs, with UCLA’s Jonathan Franklin and Oregon’s Kenjon Barner, widely considered a prime Heisman contender.

continue your college career. It’s the best time of your life, I love these guys.” Buckner said when Rodriguez first talked with the team, he brought up the fact that he wasn’t there to rebuild. The seniors on the team, like Buckner, couldn’t wait for two or three years down the road. “He wanted to make an impact now,” Buckner said. “I think we’ve fallen short a couple times this year but overall I think we’ve done more than people outside expected us to do. But we’ve always expected to win games. We don’t play to lose.” As Buckner pointed out, this team wasn’t supposed to reach six wins. Five wins seemed a little optimistic and, if anything, the road to this point has proven tougher than expected. Every single team Arizona has played, other than FCS South Carolina State and Colorado, has been ranked at one point or another and yet the Wildcats were able to go 4-4 against that stiff competition. Rodriguez doesn’t exactly have a track record for starting fast — he won just three games in his first year coaching at West Virginia and Michigan. Throw in the fact that Arizona lost three players to the NFL draft from a four-win team, and this season had failure written all over it. Instead Arizona pulled out a bowl berth, and with two winnable games left, the Wildcats could, against all odds, finish with a winning record. “We’re grateful to be in the position that we’re in, to be able to go to a bowl,” right tackle Fabbians Ebbele said. “It didn’t feel good sitting at home last year, just watching.” The career day from running back Ka’Deem Carey Saturday made the Colorado game more special than it

should have been. He rushed for a conference-record 366 yards and scored a school-record five touchdowns. In all reality, the Wildcats qualified by default against the worst team in a power conference. The victory wasn’t exactly clean, either. The Wildcats gave up 31 points to Colorado, the second most the Buffs have scored all season and almost double their season average of 16 points per game. Colorado racked up 437 total yards, which is impressive considering its offense is ranked 116th in the nation — out of 120 teams. The Wildcats backed into bowl eligibility, but just reaching the milestone is all that matters. The Wildcats more or less fell into these circumstances, which is less than ideal. After the 66-10 humiliation a week ago against UCLA, the hopes of winning the Pac-12 South immediately disappeared. Regardless, the team is excited to have the opportunity to play in a bowl. “It’s big for me,” ‘spur’ safety Tra’Mayne Bondurant said. “I’ve never been to one so it’s another experience I’ll always cherish. I’m just happy for the team and all the seniors and they get to go out and get a bowl game and that’s the most important part.” This season is, without a doubt, Rodriguez’s most successful start at a new program. Making a bowl is just the icing on the cake for quarterback Matt Scott and the rest of the seniors. The question now isn’t if they’ll make a bowl, but which one. “[The] Rose Bowl, hopefully,” Bondurant joked. That’s never going to happen. But a trip to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl or the MAACO Las Vegas Bowl isn’t a bad consolation prize. — Kyle Johnson is a journalism junior. He can be reached at or on Twitter via @KyleJohnsonUA.

The future

Earlier in the season, receiver Dan Buckner told the Arizona Daily Wildcat he feels Carey can win a Heisman trophy before his career at the UA is done. That doesn’t sound so farfetched after his dismantling of the Buffs. “I think he can get better,” Rodriguez said.

Q Brewster Rockit


Can men outdrink women?

There are plenty of perfectly good ways to get competitive out there, but drinking contests might not be the best option, unless you are OK with a case of the Brown Bottle Flu the following day. Yes, anyone who disregards the consequences can choose to drink more than the “other guy” (or girl). But the fact remains that when it comes to the sexes, alcohol does not provide a level playing field. Many people think guys can outdrink women solely because they tend to weigh more. And while it’s true that heavier people will have lower blood alcohol concentrations (BACs) compared to lighter people drinking the same amount of alcohol – that’s only part of the story. Compared to women, men also have more of the enzymes that metabolize alcohol. More enzymes mean a lower BAC for the same amount of alcohol consumed. There’s another important difference as well: men have a higher percentage of water (by virtue of more muscle mass) compared to women, which helps dilute the concentration of alcohol in their bloodstream. So, can men outdrink women? If you’re asking who can drink more and have a lower BAC, all other things being equal, the answer is yes. But if you are looking for a good time, who really cares? Most of the positive effects of alcohol happen after the first few drinks, not the last few. Look on the bright side: women and people who weigh less need fewer drinks to get the positive social/fun effects of alcohol. In other words, they can drink less and still have a good time. Let’s face it – anyone can overdrink, but underdrinking requires skill, practice and discipline. Do you have what it takes? For more info on your BAC, and to figure out how many drinks will keep you in the sweet spot, check out

If you drink, have a plan: set a limit on the number of drinks you’ll have, choose a sober designated driver, and eat food before you drink.
