Calculations require caution Critics say financial aid net price calculator skews cost of attendance By Eliza Molk DAILY WILDCAT

The UA has created a net price calculator to help applicants estimate the amount of need-based aid they could receive, but its accuracy in determining true cost of attendance is questionable. The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid posted the new calculator to comply

with a federal mandate that went into effect on Saturday. Colleges and universities all over the country must have some form of a net price calculator designed to estimate net loans, grants and cost of attendance. Although the calculator is a “step in the right direction,” according to Mark Kantrowitz, publisher of and author of “Secrets to Winning a Scholarship,” it should be used as a “ball park estimate that may not be all that accurate.” The data used in the UA’s calculator is 2 years old, Kantrowitz said, because

the information used was gathered in December, while the financial aid budget for the fall semester was created the spring before. This poses a problem when comparing the UA to other colleges, he said, who may have created their own custom calculators using different data. “You’re going to have results that aren’t really comparable,” Kantrowitz added. The definition of net price is also flawed, he said, because the average grant sum used in the calculators is specific to firstyear, full-time students, not transfer or

Special Collections receives set of Humane Borders archives WORTH NOTING

The UA Library Special Collections department has obtained archives from Humane Borders, a nonprofit, Tucson-based organization dedicated to minimizing migrant deaths. Founded in June 2000, Humane Borders has focused primarily on installing and maintaining emergency water stations throughout areas

along the U.S.-Mexico border known to be heavily traveled by migrants, in an attempt to “create a safe and death-free border environment,” according to the mission statement at The organization’s philanthropy has resulted in heavy political criticism from commentators like Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity. Humane Borders’ original founder Robin Hoover said the main goal is to help keep people alive.

“Humane Borders is a humanitarian organization that was created to provide humanitarian assistance to the migrants who are risking their lives coming across the Sonora/Arizona border,” Hoover said. “In order to accomplish that, we created and maintained water stations out in the desert.” Additionally, Hoover, who is no longer involved with Humane Borders on a day-to-day basis, said

the organization collected data regarding how many migrants were dying and where. The data was then used to create maps and warning posters to deter migrants from attempting to cross the border. These maps and posters, along with media and administrative files, Hoover’s own writings and hate mail sent to the organization are all

Climate change leader visits UA Germs abound Stresses importance of research, says field is not a political issue By Kyle Mittan DAILY WILDCAT

A world leader in climate change research visited the UA on Wednesday to present his findings on how humans have impacted global climate change. Ronald Stouffer, an internationally recognized climate scientist, studied the topic for more than 30 years as a federal employee, working for organizations like the Department of Commerce, Princeton University’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Stouffer, who works in

New Jersey, uses climate models to study past, present and future climates. The presentation was co-sponsored by the UA’s Institute of the Environment, School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and Department of Geosciences. “I’m trying to communicate to the audience what I view is what’s known and not known about climate change and how we know it, and to allow the audience to make their own judgments about what, if anything, should be done about climate change,” Stouffer said. Stouffer chose to come to the UA after being invited by Jianjun Yin and Joellen Russell, two assistant profesWILL FERGUSON / DAILY WILDCAT sors in the geosciences department who both did post-doctoral research Climate change scientist Ronald Stouffer gave a talk about human impact on

on touch screens By Amer Taleb DAILY WILDCAT

That touch screen at the checkout counter is probably dirtier than you think. More than 60 percent of grocery and hardware store touch screens examined in a roughly three-month UA study had fecal bacteria on them. Several were contaminated with E. coli and one contained MRSA, contagious staph bacteria. No one’s ever studied touch screens as mediums for transferring germs from one person to another, said Chuck Gerba, the soil/water and environmental sciences professor

who designed the study. You can pick up between 20 and 30 percent of the germs someone else leaves behind on a hard surface, Gerba said. “ATM machines, mobile phones, iPads … germs are always being transferred to a surface,” he said. “We’re a button-pushing world and your generation, college students, touch more buttons than any generation in history.” College age students touch their faces 16 times per hour, which transfers the germs, Gerba said.

Translator program sees rapid enrollment growth By Alexandra Bortnik Daily Wildcat

Since its launch five years ago, the UA’s translation and interpretation program has grown from 35 to 170 students. The Spanish and Portuguese department’s five-year-long undergraduate program was developed by the National Center for Interpretation through a grant given to the center from the U.S. Department of Education. “The federal government has been looking at this much more closely, recently in the last 10 years or so, and so more and more agencies are recognizing their obligation to provide interpreter services for their clients,” said Paul Gatto, assistant director for the Interpretation Test Research Center. In August 2000, then-President Bill Clinton signed White House Executive Order 13166 requiring that “the Federal Government provides and funds an array of services that can be made accessible to otherwise eligible persons who are not proficient in the English language.” Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 also requires institutions that receive federal money to provide equal access to people with limited English proficiency, which Gatto explained as one of the many reasons for the growing demand for qualified translators and interpreters. “The need is great and growing because of federal efforts to enforce civil rights laws that relate to people with limited English proficiency,” Gatto said.

Sonia Colina, a professor of Spanish and Portuguese, said the program is developing an online certification process, which will cater to working professionals and undergraduates who want to continue their education in translation and interpretation. “For people who are older, or professionals that might be working part-time or fulltime, those people see sometimes that they can’t go back to school but they need to get some kind of formal training,” Colina said. “Up until very recently in the U.S. we didn’t really have much formal training in translation and interpretation.” With the increasing number of accredited translators and interpreters, businesses and institutions will begin to seek translators and interpreters with higher forms of education in the field, according to Colina. “Recent Department of Labor statistics indicate that the growth of the field is projected to outpace the growth of most fields in the next 20 years,” Gatto said. Translation and interpretation programs are also necessary for Americans born in the U.S. “There a lot of people who are born and raised here who are still limited in their English proficiency, and you can grow up in this country without knowing very much English,” Gatto said. Gatto said the mentality that the United States is an English-speaking country is inconsistent with the legal foundation of the country, and that it wasn’t created with

English as its primary language. “It doesn’t strike me as very American … and it doesn’t strike me as a particularly moral perspective to take,” Gatto said. Colina also stressed the demand for accredited translators in the medical and legal fields where businesses are liable for mistakes in translation. Ramses Rocha, a UA graduate from the Eller College of Management and program coordinator for the National Center for Interpretation, said he’s witnessed the difficulty that a person with limited knowledge in English undergoes in medical and legal settings. “In the legal realm, as well as in the medical, there’s definitely a different language. Being able to communicate in such a language is a matter of life or death,” Rocha said. “The service that we provide to train people who want to interpret and translate is very important, there are people who really need the service.” Rocha said his main goal is to fulfill the center’s mission statement and provide access and justice to people with limited or no knowledge of the English language. The center also contributes to the UA’s obligations as a land grant institution to serve the community, Gatto said. “We really try to make ourselves a resource for the community of interpreters in this country at all levels,” said Eva Morrow, marketing specialist for the center, “and that’s definitely something we like to reinforce.”

“You guys are always sticking your fingers in your face,” he added. Ty Rouzan, a pre-business student, said the nastiest part of the study is the amount of fecal bacteria found on the touch screens. “That’s disgusting, people need to Purell themselves,” he said. “I see people walking out of the bathroom all the time without washing their hands and I’m stuck standing there doing a double take.” The fecal bacteria probably comes from people not cleaning themselves properly after using the bathroom or from handling raw meat products in grocery stores, Gerba said.

included in the archives now held in Special Collections. Assistant librarian and archivist Chrystal Carpenter said the Humane Borders archives fit in well with other Southwestern history resources, a topic that the UA Library Special Collections specializes in. “Special Collections is basically the primary research center for the library on campus,” Carpenter said. “We focus on the Southwest and borderlands specifically, as well as other areas that support the university, so we have a lot of primary research materials — correspondence, photographs, rare books — anything that’s unique and one-of-a-kind that’s in the library system is here in Special Collections, and Humane Borders is one of those types of things.” According to Carpenter, preserving the materials is an important step toward ensuring the information is available to future generations. “By preserving them (the documents) and keeping them safe for posterity, it allows researchers now and into the future to be able to actively study this material, and be able to promote scholarship and preserve the knowledge,” she added. Hoover also said having access to the archives will allow people in many fields to continue researching U.S. border relations. “There will be major histories written about this,” he said. “There already have been books, movies, Ph.D. dissertations, documentaries and thousands of print articles … about this. By putting these in the archives, we’re making them available to historians, students, filmmakers and documentarians to use from now on because this story is far from being over.” From a university perspective, Carpenter said that having the archives complements the library’s already-notable collection, which includes pieces from the 1800s, documents signed by former President Abraham Lincoln and transcripts of interviews with people who directly knew Adolf Hitler. “I think that it (having the Humane Borders materials) fosters the goals of the university in building scholarship and research, and building community relations,” Carpenter added. “It definitely fulfills the mission of the university to do so.”

checkout and check-in touch screens are probably the dirtiest on campus. Because they’re used so often, it’s impossible for the library staff to keep up with cleaning them, he said. The library custodial staff cleans the express checkout and check-in machines daily, said Robyn Huff-Eibl, team leader for access and information services for the UA libraries. There are also Purell instant hand sanitizer stands at all of the library public service desks for anyone to use, she said. Carol Underwood, a dining services attendant lead at On Deck Deli, said employees make a point of wiping down the cashier’s touch screen and that she washes her hands frequently. Deandra J. Roberts, a graduate student studying higher education

administration, said the study’s results were gross, but not surprising considering how often touch screens are used. “And it makes me think twice about using kiosks,” she said. “If everyone did their part and washed their hands, society would be healthier and a lot better off.” Since it’s not practical to wipe down a touch screen every five minutes, Gerba recommended people use hand sanitizer and wash their hands frequently. “We don’t want to make people paranoid about germs. We’re trying to raise awareness about good hand hygiene and where it’s important to disinfect,” he said. “The idea is to keep the odds in your favor, not the germs. The solution is in your hands.”

part-time students. Additionally, Kantrowitz said the calculator is geared toward grant recipients instead of the general student, which could be problematic if a potential student uses the calculator and is unsure if they will receive a grant. “This could understate the cost by thousands of dollars,” he said. While some are wary of the calculator, others like John Nametz, director of student financial aid at the UA, maintain it is “exactly accurate for what it does.” Nametz explained that the calculator looks at the median of the user’s information, which can becompared with the medians at other schools, he said, and is more accurate than using a simple average. There are a few factors the UA’s calculator does not take into account, he said. Nametz explained that it does not embed scholarship money given after the admissions process, does not consider class and department competitiveness and cannot predict changes in a student’s life that could change the amount of financial aid awarded. His office makes about 4,000 adjustments in student financial aid per year, he said, for many reasons, including a change in a parent’s income or an increase in a student’s medical expenses. “There’s no calculator that can deal with that,” he said. “There’s no way we can make it as accurate as we would like … but students still benefit from it. It does take certain things into account.” Some student groups applauded the UA’s efforts to focus on the total cost of attendance rather than tuition alone. “Tuition is not the only cost students incur, we need to look at total affordability of higher education,” said Dan Fitzgibbon, board chair of the Arizona Students’ Association. Although the calculator can help future students “roughly plan” the cost of attending the UA, he said, it does not factor in tuition increases. Fitzgibbon put in what his information would have looked like during his incoming freshman year, and the calculator gave him a net price of about $6,000, which he said is “no longer the case.” “There is no predictability in the way we see costs increase,” he said. “Our (ASA’s) biggest priority is to ensure that projected aid is as high as possible.” James Allen, president of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, said the calculator gives students a good idea of what their cost of attendance could be. But due to the calculator’s “vagueness” and “lack of detail,” he said, it runs the risk of not being entirely accurate because it could become outdated from tuition and fee hikes. He said information like a student’s high

Gingers do have souls Ashley Reid Daily Wildcat


ast weekend, notoriously noted as “Halloweekend,” I couldn’t help but notice a trend in costumes. Alongside the slew of police officer costumes and animal ears paired with sleazy apparel, were plenty of “gingers.” People actually painted their hair an unsettling color of red, paled out their faces and ornamented themselves with brown marker freckles. I’ve never really analyzed this stereotype, but I kept seeing these creepy photos pop up online. What on earth is up with people’s fixation of hating on redheads? Perhaps I’m the only one who doesn’t understand what the deal is with this ginger stereotype. The ginger stereotype has been prominent for centuries. In medieval times, redheads were thought to be emblems of sexual desire — but not in a good way. It was more of a homewrecker stereotype. It was also noted that red-haired people had temper problems and fiery personalities. In some cultures, people believed that people with red hair and green eyes were witches. The stereotype softened in Elizabethan times in England, only because the queen herself was a ginger. Red hair swiftly became fashionable, and it was portrayed in various paintings and artworks. However, the modern stereotype of red-haired people is different. Gingers are yet again mocked — we’ve all heard the whole “gingers don’t have a soul” phenomena. Now I’ll be honest, I don’t know anyone who literally hates gingers. I do know a huge portion of my acquaintances constantly mock them and always makes the excuse “It’s because they’re a ginger.” Someone enlighten me how your hair color contributes to your personality flaws. Last time I checked, the genetics that define complexion doesn’t factor into one’s character traits. I could be wrong here, but I’m sure that the hue of your hair is not directly linked to your soul. Gingers are becoming the new dumb blondes of this generation. This is nothing more than society’s passive aggressive attempt to single out a minority with different aesthetic attributes than the norm. You no doubt hear this ginger reference constantly, yet you’ll hardly hear someone point out how ridiculous this whole stereotype is. Everyone seems to just go with it, rather than trump up an answer for why. Of course, nobody wants to be “that guy” who stands up for the underdog, and typically when these references are used, it’s in a totally joking way. Perhaps you might say, it’s better for people to stereotype and mock because of something silly like hair color, rather than marginalizing someone for their skin color. Is it really any better to make fun of someone’s hair color instead of their skin color? They’re both uncontrollable physical features. Even still, the large part of people mocking gingers are in fact making fun of their skin complexion as well, so really you can’t say they’re not mocking them for their skin color too. It’s essentially the same thing: taking physical appearances and directly attributing them to a reason to be disliked and mocked. This fixation on making fun of gingers needs to fade away. — Ashley Reid is a journalism sophomore. She can be reached at

Pulse of the Pac

Although the GERs (general education requirements) fall under criticism, the theory underlying their existence — that values a liberal education, or an education involving study in all the major subfields — is sound. Although a liberal education might once have been valued for the purpose of educating the future elite in upper-class social norms, such as an understanding of Greek, in the 21st Century a more practical justification is in order. There are at least two such justifications. One is that, in exposing all students to a wide range of fields, requiring a liberal education can help students find new intellectual passions. Given that many Stanford students ultimately major in something completely different from what they originally intended, this benefit cannot be ignored. However, we must also justify the liberal education for those students who are completely certain of their major and future career. A common question asked by critiques of a liberal education goes something like this: Why should an English major, dead set on writing for a living, need to take classes in math, science and engineering? … We are entering a workforce and society where having knowledge in just one field will not suffice. The National Academy of Engineering, for instance, recognizes the importance of a liberal education … In an increasingly technology-dependent world, it is important that those majoring in the humanities and social sciences have college-level exposure to math, science and engineering if their major does not already require it.

The Occupy movement seemed to start out strong. Over in New York, it had a solid mission statement and passionate people, the key to any productive protest. I understood what they argued for, and thought, “Yeah, OK, I can see what they’re upset about.” And then the media got a hold of it, as did the bandwagon hoppers…The movement turned into the next “cool” thing. I think that people saw the passion and drive of the first Occupiers over at Wall Street and thought, “Hey, if I go over there and do what they’re doing, maybe I could be as passionate as them.” Wrong. Others thought, “My cause needs that much attention too, so I’ll just head over and get my signs in the way,” which just confused viewers even more. So congratulations, America. You have messed it up. You took a thing that was really trying to make a difference and made it into your own banana stand. I don’t think anything can be done anymore. I think that the idea has gotten so muddled up that there cannot be any recovery. The Occupy movement has turned into more of a fad than anything, leading the rest of the public to see occupiers as second graders petitioning to get longer lunch periods.

The debate regarding the legalization of prostitution is a complex one. Sex is a socially sensitive issue and a private matter, so when debates start about the legalization of the solicitation of sex, things are bound to get heated … The problem with this discussion is that both arguments are based on an existing and continuing patriarchal, economically unequal, violent society that doesn’t allow for complete freedom and choice. Now, I realize there are male prostitutes, and not all sexual abuse is directed at women by men. However, in a majority of cases, it is men that sexually abuse women and children (85 percent of domestic violence victims are women according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence), and a large majority of prostitutes are women.  My analysis of the issue is largely based on those generalities … When people discuss the right to choose to pay for sex, it seems like they ignore the woman’s right to choose to have sex in exchange for payment. Obviously by participating, the prostitute is making a decision, and in that sense, it is their choice … I’m sure there are prostitutes who choose this lifestyle freely and enjoy their work, this just isn’t the case the majority of the time.  But to effectively debate the legalization — “Occupy movement should change of prostitution, we must discuss the many approach” by Branden Andersen social problems that often force women into prostitution: poverty, sexual violence, childhood abuse and coercion. — “Considering the legalization of prostitution” by Sean Tipton

Bling from alum helps students nab scholarships By Ashley Pearlstein Daily Wildcat

Tucson Fiction Project presents “2m, 2f: A Perfectly Ordinary Evening of Theatre” tonight and Saturday in Room 100 of the Social Sciences building at 7 p.m. All of the one-act plays are written, produced and performed by students.

One-acts hit campus By Cecelia Marshall


Daily Wildcat

m, 2f: A Perfectly Ordinary Evening of Theatre” will turn out to be a not so ordinary evening.

With hallucinating characters, dramatic love affairs, and even a play done backwards, these comical one-acts will leave the audience simultaneously entertained and intrigued. “They are complex, interesting and very impressive for being short one-acts,” said Arielle Cardona, a junior studying creative writing and communication who stars in the plays. “They make you question your life choices and makes you learn, but only if you let yourself,” Cardona said. Tucson Fiction Project, a student club created last school year, will showcase these three brand-new, never-beforeseen one-acts written, produced and performed by students. Club creators Michael Weingartner, a junior studying creative writing, molecular and cellular biology, and ecology and evolutionary biology, and media arts major Logan Smith will show students just how far their creativity can take them. Free for everyone, each 20-minute one-act was written by Weingartner at a different point in his life, but after putting them together, he realizes they are all related. A Q&A forum will follow the performance each night. The panel of directors, playwright, and performers hopes to generate discussion about the process of the play and production

development as well as hear feedback about the plays. Weingartner also hopes the Q&A will lead other students to produce their own productions and screenplays through the Tucson Fiction Project club. The club is dedicated to student actors, filmmakers, producers, writers, musicians and creative minds alike and is about taking ideas and getting them produced and published in any way possible. “It’s all about getting writers together and creating new work,” he said. Weingartner said he was told by the student provost and film and theater department when he first discussed the start of Tucson Fiction Project that “no one has ever done something like this.” Weingartner and Smith hope the Tucson Fiction Project, supported mainly by the Honors College, will inspire more playwrights, directors, and actors and prove that a there is a vehicle to showcase what they have created. “In a real sense, this project stands for the fact that it doesn’t take the resources of an entire department or theater company. It’s a small way of doing something big,” Weingartner said. For Smith, “it’s all about making theater instead of doing theater.” Students can’t just be creative, they need to actually create. Just because you

can’t find a club with your interests or the school doesn’t provide anything for you, doesn’t mean you can’t do it. Be a trailblazer and others will join, Smith said. “There is no excuse,” he said. “Get involved. If you love it, go do it.”

Whitney Wilkening, founder of a successful highend costume jewelry company, proves that with determination, a business strategy and UA spirit, anything is possible. Wilkening’s company, Bling by Wilkening, was created in 2007 with the help of professors. As a retailing and consumer sciences major, Wilkening used her knowledge to develop a company based on outstanding quality, great price and charity. “It was really exciting to put into practice what I learned every day in class and now I’m doing it full time,” Wilkening said. The New York-based Bling by Wilkening is featured in the glass case in the UofA Bookstore and has graced the covers of Tucson Bride and Groom magazine and Valley Social Luxury Magazine. The company also pairs with showrooms in Brazil, England and New York to showcase fashions three to six months before other shows. The popular, semiprecious jewelry, however, is most known for its involvement with Kleinfeld Bridal. Kleinfeld, featured on TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress,” has been carrying Bling by Wilkening pieces since March. Wilkening was invited back to the UA for Homecoming weekend to help raise money for the Future Retail Leaders Scholarship Fund and the Office of Student Affairs Scholarship. “I bleed red and blue as an alumnus and I am really excited to be able to come back and do this,” Wilkening said. The jewelry cases will feature pieces priced from about $29 to $65 with UA student and staff discounts.

The Plays:

“Surreal for Breakfast”: “When a beleaguered housewife suspects her husband of an affair, she brings it up with her own lover, a handsome and charming man who just so happens to look strangely like her husband. Love, marriage, kids and betrayal are all explored in this hilarious absurdist suburban farce.” “Everybody is Blake Hamilton”: “When Kyle is forced to meet his ex-girlfriend’s perfect new boyfriend Blake, things go from bad to worse when, suddenly, every man on the planet begins to look and sound just like Blake Hamilton. Watch Kyle struggle to overcome his past, his insecurities and his mental breakdown in this fast-paced psychological comedy.” “The Backwards Play”: “A romantic comedy told in reverse, this play follows two strange couples as they explore relationships, language, pop culture and just how difficult it can be sometimes to move forward in life.”


Where science and creative writing collide By Jazmine Woodberry Daily Wildcat

The editors of the quarterly journal Creative Nonfiction chose two winning essays from a competitive pool of nearly 200 contest submissions — one of them was Chester Phillips’ “Heroes and Consequences: On Masculinity and Redemptive Violence in American Culture.” A tale of his teenage sister’s rape — and his struggle with taking his own revenge in the situation — is a commentary on American culture, particularly regarding men. “From the Old Testament ‘eye for an eye’ to action movies, the scripts had been written out for us to follow,” Phllips’ essay reads. “We started making plans to go after Andy.” After writing the story as a master’s student in creative nonfiction, the doctoral student studying arid land resource sciences urges people to take heart from the message of his essay, and the path he’s chosen for his career. Daily Wildcat: What is the essay about? Chester Phillip: This essay is about a time in my life when I was tempted toward revenge because of family trauma. In American culture, we’re taught, when someone you love is hurt, what are you supposed to do? Go after them. We see it in countless movies, book, all over TV. Again and again, we see the stories and then it’s a revenge story — but in real life, revenge might not be the thing that brings peace or healing.

Bottoms up: Enjoying the football game, win or lose positive attitude back to the special teams. So, when Bonano’s kick is good, celebrate with a shot.



s with everything this week, today’s focus is on Homecoming. There are many games played during this spirited time, but the most important one is the Arizona football game. With so many alumni returning for it and the high volume of students in the ZonaZoo, not everyone can get in. Well, fear not, in lieu of getting to experience the game, there is a way to spice up watching it from home. The method referred to is, of course, a drinking game — because in college, everything is a drinking game, right? This Arizona drinking game is a frequent occurrence during away games among friends, so why not share the joy with everyone? There are the basics, like drinking after every scoring drive, interception or fourth down conversion, but every team needs its special rules. Of course, sadly — for the game, not the team — two of the biggest reasons for Arizona fans to drink are no longer around. Yes, now that Mike Stoops has been replaced with interim head coach Tim Kish, no one can take a shot every time the camera turns to him and he’s angry. So much alcohol will go without being consumed. Then there’s former starting kicker, Alex Zendejas. It used to work that whenever he missed a kick, everyone finished their drink. Now we have John Bonano who makes every PAT and field goal. What a jerk, right? He’s totally killing the buzz.


Worry not though, fellow Wildcats. There are still plenty of predictable habits which can be used to drink — here they are: Drink every time Kish doesn’t overreact to a penalty call: So this might be confusing, but a bit of an explanation should clear it up. To start, think about what would happen if a penalty was called on Arizona while Stoops was the head coach. Without fail, he would lose his shit and go red in the face. Whether he yelled at the ref or the players, someone received his ire. Kish is more reserved and level headed. He takes the bad calls in stride, and when they’re warranted he just shrugs them off, or so it seems. Regardless, the thing to keep in mind is this: when a penalty is called that would have set Stoops off, but Kish stays cool, take a shot. Use your best judgment, but when in doubt, take one anyway. Couldn’t hurt. Drink every time Bonano makes a kick: For most teams, the kicker making a short range field goal, or even a PAT, is not a momentous occasion. For the Wildcats, however, it’s cause for uproarious celebration. After all, for the past two years, Arizona fans have had to bite their collective nails every time a kick needed to happen. In the past fans adapted and just used the misses as an excuse to drink, but now it’s time to bring that

Drink every time Nick Foles makes an improbable pass: The entire Wildcat fan base should know by now that Foles makes some unbelievable passes. It doesn’t happen every game, but when they do occur, they’re a thing of beauty. So, to treasure the moment, every time Foles makes the play when lesser quarterbacks wouldn’t, drink. For those unsure, this includes events like making a pass while being tackled, throwing the ball with his left hand (he’s a righty) or threading the ball right past multiple defenders. Again, like the Kish rule, use your best judgment. Finish your drink if Arizona wins: Hell, finish two drinks. This one is pretty easy to understand. Arizona’s record is far from stellar, sitting at a measly 2-6. Homecoming games are supposed to be sure things, but the way the team has been playing, don’t be so sure. Utah is a pretty solid team this year, so it could give the Wildcats a run for their money. However, should Arizona pull out the W, go nuts. Not only does it mean further redemption for a team that should be much better than it is, it means the team can still go to a bowl game, which is good. So, in honor of that, shotgun a beer, pound some shots — do whatever feels necessary to make sure this momentous occasion isn’t forgotten. Just be safe, everyone. The team already has enough injuries as it is — it doesn’t need the fans to suffer too. — Jason Krell is a junior studying creative writing and Italian. He can be reached at

wanna play Farmville, I just wanna play for real” shouldn’t be OK. Maybe band members are wisely playing the viral marketing card á la Rebecca Black, or on a more frightening note, they’re being serious. Heart2Heart and its media buzz wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for mass-produced pop hits being churned out by more notable influences. Granted, it takes initial talent to get noticed, but it makes me cringe to think of what brought these guys into Lance Bass’ office, as it sure wasn’t a 12-year-old’s Youtube videos. We need a change. We need to recognize talent by a songwriter’s ability, by their ability to make an arena feel like a club and to make a club feel like a party. We need to keep our thumbs on the pulses of independent labels and back

hen Casanova toured the UA for the first time in the hopes of getting away from her hometown of Lubbock, Texas, she was immediately impressed by its beauty and spirited atmosphere. “As I came on campus I knew it was the right place for me,” she said. Casanova began in the nursing program, but now she is majoring in psychology. Her minor is in special education and rehabilitation. Throughout her career at the UA, Casanova has participated in various campus organizations including SMORES Sophomore Honorary and Chain Gang Junior Honorary. She is the president of Chi Omega sorority. One of Casanova’s role models is British author J.K Rowling. Casanova said she admires Rowling for her creativity, intelligence and determination. “She is not afraid to be who she is,” Casanova said. “She’s come from nothing and she’s made such a success story.” Once she leaves the UA, Casanova plans to apply to graduate school and pursue a career in occupational therapy.

he Homecoming queen is a symbol of tradition at the UA. This year, 33 applicants competed to be named Arizona’s most spirited, most dedicated, most involved lady Wildcat, said Charlie Spector, queen selection co-chair of the Bobcats Senior Honorary. The honor of representing the UA student body is awarded at the end of nearly a two-month process of nominations, applications and interviews. The Bobcats Senior Honorary is in charge of crowning Homecoming royalty. According to Spector, clubs started nominating candidates in September and Homecoming queen applications were due Oct. 5. Since applying, candidates have been participating in social mixers and going to interviews to help the judges get to know them. The honorary is looking for “someone who can show what the University of Arizona is all about,” Spector said. The first cut was made at 15 candidates. From there, the judges selected the five final candidates who would make up the Homecoming court. Choosing only five nominees was no easy task, Spector said. “It’s hard because all the girls are so qualified,” he said. “We’re just very impressed with those seniors that represent our school.” This week, the final five participated in various Homecoming events like the lighting of “A” Mountain and club olympics. Each candidate campaigned among different UA organizations, hoping to garner support before the elections on Wednesday and Thursday. Votes are in and suspense is mounting as the UA waits for the announcement of this year’s Homecoming royalty at tonight’s bonfire. Which of these seniors will wear the crown?

rowing up, Larson came to Tucson often to visit her grandparents. She fell in love with the warm weather and the sunny UA campus and decided to leave Spokane, Wash., to make the UA her new home. Now, Larson is the president of Gamma Phi Beta sorority and a student employee at UA Mobile. She’s majoring in family studies and human development, and said she hopes to work with families and nonprofit organizations in the future. Soon, Larson will find out if she has been accepted to the Teach For America program, which would allow her to be a teacher for two years and help pay for her master’s degree in education. Larson said she feels honored to be a part of the UA’s Homecoming tradition. “This is the one time of the year when we can have our past, present and future Wildcats together,” she said. For Larson, the Homecoming queen should be “someone who loves Arizona and will continue to have the spirit of the U of A no matter where she ends up.”

with Stouffer at Princeton. “I wrote several papers with Ron (Stouffer) when I was at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at Princeton, so we worked together for years,” Russell said. “It’s such a delight, such an honor to have him come out here. He’s one of the top three most cited climate scientists in the world.” According to Russell, Stouffer has been cited more than 20,000 times in articles regarding climate change research. Yin also spoke highly of Stouffer’s work. “Ron is a leading climate scientist over the world,” Yin said. “He published many seminal papers, groundbreaking papers on climate and

climate change, so we are very happy to have him here to … talk about his latest progress in this field.” On a university level, several have said that Stouffer’s visit simply adds to the UA’s reputation as a leading institution in the field of climate change research. Jonathan Overpeck, co-director of the Institute for the Study of Planet Earth, referred to the changes happening everywhere “else in the United States outside of Alaska.” “The University of Arizona’s got a huge commitment to helping society deal with this climate change, and that doesn’t mean telling people what to do, it means understanding the problem, what it means for the future, and coming up with choices for the decision makers,” Overpeck said. “So for us, it’s very important to get the very best people in the world on climate to visit with our people to really bring solutions

awsey left her hometown of Shavertown, Pa., for the UA’s prestigious dance program. “It was between here and a school in Pittsburg, and the school in Pittsburg was a one-building school, it was a conservatory. So, I chose the football team and the school spirit over that one building in Pittsburg,” she said. She is a member of Sigma Kappa sorority and Dancers’ Consortium, a student-run organization that seeks to create community within the dance department. She also dances on the UA’s Pom Line Dance Team. During her junior year, Dawsey served as the UA’s mascot, Wilma Wildcat. Next semester, she will start auditioning for jobs on cruise ships. Her goal is to someday play a Disney princess and travel the world in the entertainment business. Dawsey said her grandmother played a significant role in her life by radiating optimism and maintaining in a passion for living. “I just hope I am like her when I’m older — fun and always happy … I want a lot of people to be a part of my life,” she said. Like many other former Wilma Wildcats, Dawsey hopes to return to the UA next year to support Arizona. “Bleed red and blue,” she said.

lasby is from Scottsdale and has always been a devoted Wildcat, she said. As an elementary education major, Clasby volunteers and takes methods courses at L M Prince Elementary School, where she works with fourth-grade students. Beyond the classroom, Clasby is the president of Alpha Phi sorority and a member of the Order of Omega, a greek leadership honor society. Sigma Chi fraternity chose Clasby to represent its chapter’s values as the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi, as well. The Homecoming queen is not just “outgoing and personable,” Clasby said. She embodies tradition, gets involved with the student body and supports the university. “There’s spirit involved in it. Being nominated and considered, it just shows that we just embrace what U of A has to offer,” she said. Clasby attributes much of her success to her grandmother, who supported each of Clasby’s endeavors from cheerleading in high school to leading her sorority. Looking ahead, Clasby plans to stay in Arizona and hopes to begin her teaching career within the next year.

ven though she’s originally from Phoenix, Tirendi said choosing between Arizona State University and the UA was an easy decision. She became involved with the UA community immediately as a member of Freshman Class Council. Then, in her junior year, Tirendi participated in Chain Gang Junior Honorary. Now, she is a member of the Club & Organization Standards Board and the Eller Board of Honor and Integrity. Because she is not involved in Greek Life and she commits much of her time to working outside of school, Tirendi said she was surprised by her nomination. She said she is proud to represent more traditional UA students and bring more diversity to the Homecoming court. Tirendi is studying business economics, Spanish and Portuguese. Once she graduates, she said she hopes to secure a job in investing or consulting. She is currently searching for opportunities outside the United States, particularly in Brazil. Tirendi said the role of Homecoming queen is not only a great honor, but a commitment to continuing the traditions of the university. “I feel like it’s already my responsibility to come back for Homecoming every year,” she said. “I feel like it’s a lifelong thing for sure.”

to Arizona.” The presentation discussed a range of topics, including the history of climate and weather research, how climate models work and what kind of simulations are conducted. The talk later shifted to the warming trend that the planet has been experiencing, the increasing concentration of greenhouse gases and the likelihood of it all being caused by humans. “Human activities are likely to be the cause of warming over the last 100 years on each of the continents,” Stouffer said while referencing a report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. On the topic of climate change politics, Stouffer has said he is a scientist, first and foremost. “My job, as I see it, is to inform people what the

climate community knows and doesn’t know,” he said. “I believe that is part of the political process to figure out what should be done about it as a result. I tend to be very stringent in trying to communicate what’s known and not known about climate change.” As for the importance of his research, Stouffer said climate change affects everybody, primarily in future generations. “The decisions we make today don’t necessarily impact us directly,” he added. “Humans are the cause of a lot of the climate changes we see, and it’s an intergenerational issue. The gasoline we burn and the fuel we use to heat our houses today will be causing warming for our kids and our grandchildren through the course of their life. Climate change is something that’s going to impact the planet.”

Police Beat By Rebecca Rillos Daily Wildcat

Autocrat, auto-crime

A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to the Architecture building at 8:20 a.m. on Monday in response to vandalism. The officer met with a Facilities Management employee, who reported that an electrical box on the southwest side of the building had been tagged with a stenciled, black spray-painted image that resembled the artist Chuck Close, the officer noted. Below the portrait was the word “autocrat.” An identical image was found on a metal cylinder storage tank on the east side of the building. The employee said there had been no damage, when the area was last chekced on Oct. 28. The officer photographed the damage. Victim’s rights forms were mailed to the UA.

The three glass safety panes were broken open and the items inside were stolen. The moneybox was still intact. The officer contacted a Tomdra serviceman. The serviceman examined the machine and was unable to find any evidence showing how the vending machine was broken into. The total value of the items taken from the machine was $57 and the cost to replace the glass was $205. The officer photographed the damage and the machine was repaired.

CatCard swiped from Rec Center A UAPD officer went to the Student Recreation Center at 8 p.m. on Monday. The officer met with a man who reported that his bag had been stolen from an unsecured locker. He found the bag in a bathroom stall in the men’s locker room of the center, but his CatCard was missing.

Into the wild: Taming horses So you like horseback riding? What is your favorite thing about horses? They’re just very trainable animals. And that’s very interesting to me because, well, imagine trying to tame a wild animal like a bear or something. Did you hear about that guy who lived with a bear for a long time? Yes, I have. He was … didn’t he get eaten eventually? Yes, he did. That’s exactly the lesson there. Is there any of that sort of danger with horses? Well, since horses are herbivores, I don’t think so. But you know, you might get kicked or thrown off.

Arizona hosts Utah as bowl hopes grow slim Wildcats must win four straight games to gain bowl eligibility By Alex Williams DAILY WILDCAT


Wide receiver Gino Crump warms up before Arizona’s game against Stanford on Sept. 17. Crump is looking forward to the challenges that Utah’s man-coverage schemes will present.

Time is running out for Arizona. The Wildcats (2-6, 1-5 Pac-12 Conference) have to win each of their remaining four games to gain bowl eligibility, starting Saturday at 4 p.m. when Arizona hosts Utah at Arizona Stadium. But even though Arizona faces long odds in trying to reach a bowl game, safety Robert Golden said he doesn’t feel the pressure mounting. “We take it one game at a time, not looking at what we’ve got ahead of us,” Golden said. “We just want to beat Utah and keep it going. It’s just going to take one game at a time and see where we end up at the end.” A board with Arizona’s schedule on it hangs on the fence in the Jimenez Practice Facility and illustrates Golden’s mindset. Every game is blocked out by black tape, except for the one being played that week. Wide receiver Gino Crump said the turmoil that Arizona has faced in the recent weeks has forced the Wildcats to focus more on the task directly in front of them. “We’re just hyped and ready to finish the season off strong,” Crump said. “I think a lot of times early in the season, we were thinking about too many things that were far ahead instead of just focusing on the task at hand.” Utah (4-4, 1-4) enters Saturday’s game with the conference’s No. 12-ranked offense, racking up just over 306 yards per game while being led by backup quarterback Jon Hays, whom Golden described as “struggling.” But Hays will try to air it out against a secondary missing starting cornerback Shaquille Richardson for the second straight week. Richardson was suspended for last week’s game at Washington and will miss the Utah game with a sprained ankle that he suffered in practice. Nickelback Jourdon Grandon will likely slide into Richardson’s spot on the defense, while freshman Tra’Mayne Bondurant will play the nickel spot vacated by Grandon. “We’ve had (Grandon) and Lyle (Brown) competing all week,” interim head coach Tim Kish said. “I think they’ll both play some.” As ineffective as the Utah offense has been at times, the Utes have the Pac-12’s No. 2 scoring



Arizona, Utah on opposite ends of the offensive spectrum By Dan Kohler DAILY WILDCAT

Arizona can keep its bowl hopes alive with a win against the Utah Utes on Saturday at Arizona Stadium. With a 1-5 Pac-12 record for the Wildcats and 1-4 conference run for the Utes. Let’s take a look at how the offense will unfold for both sides:

Comparing the pass Arizona’s passing numbers are light years ahead of Utah’s, with quarterback Nick Foles and the Wildcats ranking third in the nation with 375.6 passing yards per game. Foles’ maturity, combined with his accuracy, makes him one of the most lethal quarterbacks in the country. He’ll be able to find an open man, regardless of the Utes having the No. 3 pass defense in the Pac-12. Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham knows his secondary will have their hands full against Foles this weekend. “He has an excellent touch on the football,” Whittingham told the media in a press

conference in Salt Lake City on Monday. “He doesn’t try to gun the ball all over, but he has a great feel to put the ball where receivers will be open. That’s a great attribute for a quarterback.” Utah’s passing game lies at the other end of the spectrum. The Utes rank 100th out of 120 in the nation in passing yards per game. Starting quarterback Jordan Wynn went down with a shoulder injury on Oct. 1 against Washington and after undergoing surgery will have to sit on the bench for the rest of the season. Backup quarterback Jon Hays has struggled in his adjustment so far, throwing only 692 yards for five touchdowns in four and a half games since taking over for Wynn. Hays also has also thrown seven interceptions — in two games against Arizona State and Cal, he threw three each. Despite Hays’ struggles, Whittingham remains confident in his improvement. “He did make progress (against Oregon State) in the way that he managed the offense and made decisions,” Whittingham said. “He took care of the football, which is job number one on offense.”

Running into trouble Despite the Pac-12 being known as a quarterback-loaded conference, it also features an array of talented running backs, and Utah’s John White IV is averaging 114 yards per game, good enough for third in the conference. That’s bad news for the Wildcat defense as its track record has been anything but stellar against the premier backs in the conference. It let running backs from Oklahoma State, Stanford, Oregon and Oregon State set career highs in rushing yards. Washington’s Chris Polk dismantled the Wildcats last weekend scoring five touchdowns. He became the first player in school history to record over 100 rushing and receiving yards in the same game. Despite White’s capabilities, Arizona safety Robert Golden isn’t ready to compare him to the conference elite. “I won’t give him too much credit of (calling him) LaMichael James,” Golden said when asked which running back White reminds him of. “But he’s a real good scat back.”


Miller wary of season opener Head coach looking for day-to-day improvement By Mike Schmitz DAILY WILDCAT

In early November of last season Arizona held a closed scrimmage against Utah, and the Utes played without starting center Jason Washburn and starting power forward Jay Watkins. The Wildcats won by only five points. “I think that if you look at Utah’s season a year ago, it’s almost hard to believe that a team with 30 wins in late October, early November played Utah an even match,” said UA head coach Sean Miller. “We just got better by leaps and bounds.” Arizona went on to go 30-8 and make an Elite Eight run in the 201011 season while Utah finished the year 13-18, missing both the NCAA Tournament and the NIT. Although this year’s Wildcats are a new team with a much lower starting point, they’re hoping to mirror that progression from last season. Seattle Pacific and Humboldt State were this year’s Utah. The competitive Division II programs pushed Arizona’s buttons and exposed its weak points, something Miller thinks will help the Wildcats down the road. “To me, they allow us to really learn the most about our own team and get better,” Miller said. “As we approach Monday, I’m glad that we played both teams and I think we all recognized that our starting point isn’t very high.” The Seattle Pacific loss was an eyeopener to Arizona’s freshmen after a glitzy and glamorous Red-Blue Game. The Humboldt State squeaker proved as a wake-up call to Arizona’s underperforming leaders. “I think it helped us. Going against these teams put us in the right mindset coming off the Red-Blue Game,” said senior forward Jesse Perry. “A lot of guys felt confident, like we really did something, which we didn’t. I definitely think these two games helped us for the long run.” Miller knew the Wildcats would miss forward Derrick Williams and guard Momo Jones. He knew it would take time for the freshmen to develop. But these two games showed him exactly where Arizona is and have given him an idea of how to put the pieces to the puzzle together as far as his line-ups are concerned. “These two opportunities and 15 practices, I think we as a staff have a much clearer direction on what we have to do to be successful,” Miller said. “After the game we all realized, ‘Uh oh, we have to get a lot better.’” Miller said he’s “incredibly not comfortable” about where the Wildcats are as they prepare to host Valparaiso on Monday, and he can’t be happy with his team’s deficiencies as the season opener creeps closer. But maybe the Seattle Pacific game will serve the same purpose that last season’s Utah game did. Maybe the Wildcats have been woken up. “I know that we’re not that good, and we have to get better. We’re going to get better, we are,” Miller said. “Maybe down the line when it comes together, we’ll look back at our starting point and say, ‘Boy, we’ve really come a long way.’ That’s our goal right now.”

Coach makes sure W-hoops stays visible By Kelly Hultgren Daily Wildcat

In just three years, Niya Butts has transformed Arizona women’s basketball into a winning program that reaches out to the public. On top of intense practice schedules and sometimes demanding academics, the Wildcats make community involvement a priority. So far this season, the program has hosted a movie night, Little Dribblers, multiple “meet and greet” events and started a mentoring program with Prince Chapel AME Church of Tucson. The head coach has also made private and public appearances throughout the city, including her most recent talk last Thursday to a group of UA journalism students where she spoke about her journey to success. “For me, I just think it’s better to be out there,” Butts said. “If you want people to get behind something you’re doing, what better way to do it than to show your face. It doesn’t take a lot of money to do, it takes time, and that’s the one thing we do have and I’m willing to give.” Butts said there’s a bigger emphasis on making a connection with people rather than advertising to them. “I’m not asking Arizona to come up with $400 to 500,000 to put on our marketing plan,” she said. “But what we do want is to make sure people know that they can connect with us and that I’m not only sitting in my office saying, ‘I hope people come to the game.’ I’m willing to get out there and do whatever I can to make sure that our program gets out there.” Butts’ inspiration stems from her mother, who she describes as a very selfless person.

“But what we do want is to make sure people know . . . that I’m not only sitting in my office saying, ‘I hope people come to the game.’”

­— Niya Butts Arizona women’s basketball coach

“I think we are all a product in some way, shape or form, of our environment — the way we were brought up and what we’ve seen over time,” Butts said. “I like being around people, talking to people, making people feel good and I like the difference you can make in peoples’ lives.”

A new partnership Sometimes a requested appearance can lead to a greater and more meaningful venture for Butts. Depending on the circumstances, she’ll latch onto an organization and want to be as involved as possible, she said. That’s exactly what happened with her newfound relationship with Prince Chapel AME Church of Tucson. Last year, the Wildcats spent a lot of time with the Boys and Girls Club, but they could never call the philanthropy their own. “It’s actually something I wanted to do for awhile,” Butts said. “In terms of our team, we do a lot of things where people request us to come out into the community, but in terms of something we owned, I wanted our girls to be able to connect with something — to have personal relationships with these kids.” The opportunity arrived when a friend invited her to church one morning at Prince. Despite already having its own youth group,

the church created a partnership with Butts. “I though it would be great, because a lot of those young kids, even though they live in Tucson, have never been on a college campus,” Butts said. “I figure if we could expose them to different things and talk about different things, it can make a difference and inspire some of them.” Vianna Turner, the church’s secretary, has two younger siblings in the program. “The kids love it,” Turner said. “They always are excited when they come back from events.” Now, many of the children want to become famous basketball players, Turner added. Last month, Butts and the team took a group of kids on a tour of McKale Center, which included a guest appearance by the team’s strength and conditioning coach, Brian Odom. He had planned to show the kids some moves, but that itinerary quickly changed when the kids first stepped into the athletes’ weight room. “As soon as they got into the weight room, their eyes lit up and they didn’t care about anything anybody had to say,” Butts said. “They were in awe. We would have been ruining the moment had we tried to sit them down. It’s just amazing, because we see it every day and I think a lot of our players witnessing that understand better now the opportunity they’re afforded.” And there lies another underlying goal Butts has for the team’s program. “It’s not only for the youth and the group that’s in the mentoring program, but it’s for our kids as well,” Butts said, “because I think we all are getting something out of it.”

UA closes exhibition slate Women’s hoops hosts Grand Canyon in final preseason tune-up By Zach Rosenblatt Daily Wildcat

The Arizona women’s basketball team handily defeated Western State College 73-56 in Wednesday’s first exhibition game despite a sluggish first half, and it will try to work out the rest of the kinks when it faces Grand Canyon University on Sunday at 4 p.m. Though these first two contests are exhibitions, head coach Niya Butts said there’s much to be learned in playing outside of practice. “I count exhibitions,” Butts said. “To me they’re all opportunities to play against someone who is not affiliated with Arizona.” Against Western State, the Wildcats committed 28 turnovers and shot a lowly 17-of32 from the free throw line. Those are a few stats that certainly can’t recur going forward. “I think a little more than half of those were unforced. We were just making careless errors with the basketball,” Butts said.

“Our turnovers, they killed us, and our free throw shooting … that’s a lot of points we’re leaving on the board.” Butts said that without all of those mistakes, the Wildcats could have scored as many as 100 points, and if the team can cut back on the turnovers and make its shots from the charity stripe, they will be better off. “We should knock down free throws, and we should take better care of the basketball and if we do that we’re going to be OK,” Butts said. Davellyn Whyte, the team’s leading returning scorer from last season, struggled with foul trouble in the first game and was unable to make a huge impact. Butts said she didn’t want to overwork her star player because there’s a long season ahead. “We don’t need anybody to force anything, and we weren’t going to try and leave her in and make her play the whole second half just because she missed the first half,” Butts said. “We understand we have another exhibition on Sunday, and her body takes a lot of pounding and we’re gonna need her throughout the year.” As for highly touted freshman center Aley Rohde, who tallied a double-double in her first game with 11 points and 10 rebounds, there is still room for improvement.

“There was a lot of things I could’ve done better. For a first game I got the feel of the game and it’s just uphill from here,” Rohde said. Rohde said that, going forward, she needed to work on “consistency, a strong base in the post and my defense, gambling and getting the right position on the post player.” Butts did not believe that the 6-foot-5 starting center performed as well as she could have, and coaches are emphasizing to Rohde that she needs to start using her height to her advantage. “We’re telling her, ‘You are huge. You’re going to be able to alter some things if you just play your position and stay low and keep your hands high,’” Butts said. Behind Rohde, Butts believes that one of the team’s biggest strengths will be rebounding, which is something they showed on Wednesday when Arizona outrebounded Western State 53 to 34. “We almost outrebounded them by 20,” Butts said. “Cheylene Harper got in and got four offensive rebounds just like that and that was good. We were able to get those rebounds to get another offensive opportunity. We gotta continue to do that the remainder of the season.”

Solomon Hill has to be the go-to guy Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat


o matter how important a balanced scoring attack may be, every team needs that one player to step up and make a play in crunch time. With the game on the line or the shot clock winding down, that go-to guy puts the team on his back. Derrick Williams was that guy last season. But with Williams now in the NBA fighting with owners over 1 percent of the NBA’s revenue, Arizona has no such player. Head coach Sean Miller preached balance and a deep rotation early in the season, but even he knows the Wildcats need someone to emerge as the go-to player. Miller said the only reason Arizona doesn’t have that player is because no one has emerged as the frontrunner. “A coach doesn’t anoint the go-to guy,” Miller said after the Wildcats defeated Humboldt State. “The player becomes the go-to guy. I never said to Derrick or the team, ‘Let’s make sure Derrick gets 20.’ He just got 20.” Arizona doesn’t have a Derrick Williams. There are no 20-point scorers on the roster. But taking age, experience and skill set into consideration, junior Solomon Hill must try. Sure, there are other options. Nick Johnson and Josiah Turner are probably the two most talented players on the roster. Johnson scored an effortless 18 against Seattle Pacific and Turner’s shown the ability to break anyone down on the perimeter at any given time. But it’s unfair to lean on a pair of freshmen, especially early in the season. So that leaves the veterans — Hill, Kyle Fogg and Jesse Perry. Miller said that the go-to guy will be situational. Sometimes it’s Fogg, sometimes it’s Hill and sometimes it’s Perry. But let’s be honest. Perry and Fogg are role players. Fogg is a deadly standstill shooter, a lockdown defender and a solid leader. He’ll drill an open triple, but he’s not a playmaker. The same goes for Perry. He’s a scrapper who can hit the occasional open jumper and attack the hoop all the way from the 3-point line. He’s not Derrick Williams in the paint. He isn’t a lightsout finisher and he plays below the rim. He does a nice job getting to the free throw line and plays as hard as anyone on the team. Williams had that it factor. Momo Jones had that it factor. Perry and Fogg simply don’t. So that leaves Hill. The 6-foot-6 small forward is full of talent. He can make plays in the post and break players down off the dribble. Plus, he’s played in his fair share of big games. Hill needs to be The Man, at least until Johnson or Turner develop more. He’s the only one with the experience and the talent to fill Arizona’s gaping hole. That role is Hill’s for the taking, but judging by his last performance against Humboldt State, he’s far from taking advantage of it. “A lot of guys talk about having and wanting a bigger role,” Miller said. “There it is. It’s like, ‘Man, Derrick Williams is gone, now I have the opportunity.’ He is gone and here’s the opportunity.” Will Hill capitalize on his chance? If not, Arizona is in trouble. — Mike Schmitz is a marketing senior. He can be reached at

Volleyball hosts Oregon schools on heels of upset Beavers roll to Tucson on 3-game win streak, Ducks coming off split By Kelly Hultgren Daily Wildcat

The Arizona volleyball team (14-9, 6-8) will take on Oregon State tonight and No. 20 Oregon on Sunday, both in McKale Center. Last month, the Wildcats split in Oregon by beating the Beavers and falling to the Ducks. Oregon State is coming off of three consecutive wins, including an upset feat against Utah last weekend. Head coach Dave Rubio wasn’t surprised by the upset; the Beavers have made significant improvement since their first meeting with the Wildcats. “It doesn’t surprise me,” Rubio said. “We certainly can’t let our guard down when we play them.” For both the Wildcats and the Beavers, postseason implications are on the line. “They have a lot to play for,” he said. “I’m sure they still feel like they’re in a position for the playoffs, as we do. “Tonight is a pivotal match for

both of us,” Rubio added. “There’s a lot riding on the match for both programs.” As for Oregon, the Ducks split last weekend, defeating Colorado but falling to Utah — it was the first time this season the Ducks lost to an opponent that the Beavers didn’t. Rubio said his team has had a good week of practices and that the players are slowly but surely getting healthier. Tonight’s match starts at 8 p.m. and Sunday’s will start at noon.

Arizona to retire Kim Glass’ jersey

Arizona will retire former player Kim Glass’s jersey tonight during the Oregon State match. She is also being inducted into the UA Sports Hall of Fame. “The only retired jerseys are the players of the year recipients, and she was the Freshman Player of the Year during her first year here,” Rubio said. “From now until infinity, her jersey will be hanging from the rafters at McKale. It’s quite an honor.” Glass played outside hitter for

Rubio from 2002 until 2006. “She walked in my office yesterday and I hadn’t seen her since 2006 when she left,” Rubio said. “It was great to see her.” Glass earned multiple accolades at Arizona and still holds a handful of records for the program, and even for the conference — she is still the only Pac-10 player to get double-digit kills in every match. During her Wildcat career, she pummeled the kill record of 2,000, and established the current record of 2,151 kills. She also holds the record for service aces with 162 total. Glass continued her volleyball career by joining the 2008 USA Olympic team in Beijing, where she helped the team win a silver medal.

defense, giving up 20.6 points per game, and the No. 1 defense in total yardage, allowing just over 325 yards per game. Crump said Utah’s pass defense is a little different than anything else the Wildcats will see in conference play because of the way that Utah’s cornerbacks will creep up close to the line of scrimmage and play physical man coverage. But even though the Ute defense brings a physicality that Arizona hasn’t seen this season, Crump said that the Wildcat receivers are ready for the challenge. “That’s what you want as a wide receiver,” Crump said. “For a guy to come man you up, pressure you, it’s mano a mano and that’s what this game’s about — just stepping up and proving who’s the best.”

Hockey home for 2, Swim hosts Wisconsin Hockey team to play Weber State this weekend The No. 23 Arizona hockey team takes on the Wildcats of Weber State at the Tucson Convention Center Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. The UA will look to get over .500 for the first time this season, and ACHA Division II Weber State should provide a great opportunity to do just that. Although Arizona struggled during the start of the season, going 1-3-1 against all ranked opponents on the road, it has picked up its performance lately. The team split a road series against No. 8 Iowa State and then returned home to outscore Division II Texas by a combined score of 26-0 during its first series of the season at the TCC. While head coach Sean Hogan said Weber State should be more competitive, the team still feels confident going into the series. Weber State is 4-7-0 on the season with 6-2 and 4-1 losses to future Arizona opponent Colorado State, a team currently unranked in the ACHA Division I.

We’ve been working on that stuff, and we need to take a step forward.” Taking a step forward will be a tough task against Wisconsin, whose women’s squad was ranked 17th in the end of the season poll, while Arizona was ranked 10th. For the men, senior Cory Chitwood realizes the road will be a tough one as well, but he expects great things from his team. “I want to see some energy from our team,” he said. “We’ve been very specific in practice, and — Kyle Johnson I want to see everyone jumping in the pool like it’s their last race.” On Saturday, the Arizona men’s and women’s Swim coach Hansen faces diving teams will be one of nine schools comold squad peting in the USC Invitational in Los Angeles.

This weekend Shultz will get his first start of the season and of his collegiate career. If the UA wants to fulfill its preseason goal of returning to the national tournament after several years of missing out, this is a series that’s a must-win.

everyone reads the Wildcat 8 out of 10 UA students read the Arizona Daily Wildcat regularly. In fact, they find out what’s hot on campus from the Wildcat more often than from Facebook or friends!
