Streetcar project causes closures First construction phase to be completed before fall semester By Stephanie Casanova DAILY WILDCAT
The Tucson Modern Streetcar Project began its first phase of construction on campus Monday along First and Second streets. Construction on campus will continue throughout the semester and is projected to be completed before the fall 2012 semester.
The Tucson Modern Streetcar project was approved in a May 2006 ballot by Pima County voters. The 3.9-mile track will connect the UA, Fourth Avenue and downtown Tucson. The project, costing almost $200 million, is expected to be up and running by late 2013 after 475 days of construction and several months of testing. Construction will be done in two phases, one starting in April and the second in November. Construction on Second Street, Park Avenue between Second Street and University Boulevard and on
Fourth Avenue will begin this month in block segments as utilities are protected and replaced along the track and overhead conductor systems are removed. Instead of entirely closing Second Street, these segments will be closed one at a time as needed to avoid creating traffic congestion. “We’re taking a conservative approach to protect the tunnels so that they don’t deteriorate over time and cause problems for the U of A in the future,” said Jesse Gutierrez, streetcar construction manager. Once utility tunnels are protected,
around midsummer, Second Street will be closed entirely as the tracks for the electric car are laid out. The city of Tucson Construction Administration team and Old Pueblo Trackworks worked together to “strategically” plan ideal construction dates and sections keeping in mind the needs of students and the general public, according to Gutierrez. “We’re not doing that (closing Second Street entirely) as a courtesy to the U of A students and the

Allie Peña, Keith Koltweit and Jacob Prietto help build a trench that routes rainwater away from the foundation of Old Main, which began to deterioate after years of water erosion.
Students work to renew Old Main By Stewart McClintic DAILY WILDCAT
Students in a soil, water and environmental science class are not too crazy about puddles, as they are working on a project to keep Old Main free of rainwater. Old Main’s foundation is at risk of being damaged due to the rainwater runoff pooling around the building, according to James Riley, an associate professor in the Department of
Soil, Water and Environmental Science. In order to solve this problem, Riley and his water harvesting class are creating an alternate route for the runoff water to take. He said he hopes to eventually fix the problem areas by allowing the runoff to drain away from the base of Old Main, which would prevent pooling. The two “problem areas” that the class is working on are located on the southeast and northeast sides
of the building, Riley said. His class has completed the southeast portion of the project, Riley added, but there is still work to be done on the northeast side — downspouts on the building are producing pooling areas that put the building’s foundation at risk for long-term damage, including the potential for it to sink into the ground. To guide the water away from the building, Riley said the class is digging trenches where the downspouts
dump near the building and re-routing the water away from it. Re-routing the water has other benefits, Riley explained, because this water will be pushed toward things that need irrigation, like trees and grass. The remainder of the runoff will flow into the street. Despite the students’ work, it’s hard to see the difference it has made because it hasn’t rained yet,

Course aims to teach families about importance of fitness By Soinneah Monks DAILY WILDCAT

Lydia Bell, educational policy studies and practice assistant professor, discusses the ramifications of recent NFL sanctions against the New Orleans Saints on March 22.
Students in Lydia Bell’s youth sports course are challenging themselves to think about how families and communities help or hurt in shaping youth physical activity. The new class, Youth Physical Activity and Community Sport, is housed in the College of Education and has students learn about the importance and effects of fitness at a young age. In its first semester, it focuses on how physical activity impacts youth, concerned parents and the community. The class
is currently listed as a general education course, but that may change in the future, according to Bell, a research assistant professor of educational policy studies and practice. Bell said it is important for her students to understand youth health benefits. Many students in her class can relate to issues facing youth fitness through their own experiences, she explained. “I am having a great time teaching this course,” she said. “Many of the students in the class are either coaches or athletes, so we spend a lot of time not only
At the third annual State of the Student address, speakers called on students, regents, administrators and faculty to confront the financial challenges of higher education together. Roeland Hancock, president of the Graduate and Professional Student Council, spoke about the council’s accomplishments this year. This included funds it was able to award to students and student organizations as well as workshops it created for constituents, among others. But Hancock said these accomplishments were small compared to the challenges that education as a whole faces now. Students need to get more involved regarding the future of their education, he said. “Without an engaged populace, any government is both powerless to effect change for the benefit of people represented and has the power to wreak havoc,” Hancock said. “This is your life as a young adult to determine your financial right for decades to come.” Dan Fitzgibbon, chairman for the Arizona Students’ Association, followed Hancock and spoke about the association’s victories, one of which was raising awareness about proposed cuts to federal Pell Grant funding. Pell Grants are needbased and awarded to low-income students. In the end, Pell Grant funding suffered no cuts, Fitzgibbon said. While Pell Grants were safe,

Study: Social network users disagree politically By Riley Shingler Daily Wildcat
A majority of social networking site users disagree with friends’ posts that convey their political views, and are willing to say so, according to a recent Pew Internet & American Life Project. The study, conducted by the Pew Research Center, found that almost 40 percent of users discovered through a post on a social networking site that their friends held different political views than they had previously thought. While a higher percentage of liberals use social networking sites than conservatives, according to the study, the tension from both sides can be viewed on social networking sites almost every day. The project revealed that only 25 percent of users on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter say they always or mostly agree with
their friends’ postings, and that the majority of social networking site users who disagreed with political posts by their friends and followers either responded with comments of their own or ignored the posts altogether. “Essentially, computer-mediated communication is allowing us to reduce uncertainty about people (or form opinions) before the face-toface communication has a chance to take place,” said Kyle Oman, a communication graduate student and Arizona Student Unions social media coordinator. “This comes into play with political views and opinions, because the ability to view political affiliations is available at literally the earliest convenience.” Oman explained that when people post about politics or list their political beliefs on social networking sites, their friends form opinions about them right away and, in some

cases, even before they meet each other. “I think that social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr have all broadened the scope of youth political involvement,” said Erik Lundstrom, president of the Young Democrats and a political science junior. When people get their news and political information from correct and accurate sources, he said, political social networking can help educate and raise awareness for users. “The downside with social networking sites is that only certain topics may be brought to the table and other very important ones are left out,” said political science senior Lauren Bouton, the president of the College Republicans. On the Internet, people tend to only pay attention to individuals that agree with their viewpoints, Bouton said, which creates narrow-minded perspectives on political topics.

Fitzgibbon said the cost to attend universities in Arizona has doubled in the last five years. He said that according to recent Arizona Board of Regents data, about 40 percent of students in the Arizona University System were not getting the financial aid they needed. “As I’m sure many of the students in this room understand, I think we’ve dug so deeply into our own pockets that it feels as though our fingernails are scraping the floorboards,” Fitzgibbon said. Forcing students into debt to finance their education is not just a burden on students but also on the economy at large, Fitzgibbon said. It is estimated that students in the U.S. collectively owe more than $1 trillion in student debt, a figure that exceeds credit card debt, he said. “It is now evident that the time of discussing the problem is long since past, and that the era of action must be made here, now, with us,” Fitzgibbon added. James Allen, president of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, spoke about “turbulent times,” as financial hardship and political attrition have “forced us to fight to stay alive.”
Does it bother you when your Facebook friends or Twitter followers post their political opinions online? Would you ever delete or unfollow them because of it?
“It depends on the relationship I have with them. So if it was my best friend, I would not delete them or comment, but if it was a person I had met once or twice then I would probably delete them.” — Brittnie Nilson, agriculture education senior
“No. I would see that as a form of discrimination because I erased that person just because I didn’t agree with their opinions. I might comment on it, but that’s all.” — Juan Peraza, finance sophomore
“I don’t think politics should influence friendship that much and I believe that you are entitled to your opinion. If they posted consistent and annoying political opinions, then I would delete them. I just wouldn’t like it if they were constantly shoving it in people’s faces.” — Katie Munkdale, communication sophomore
“No, it wouldn’t bother me too much. Everyone has that freedom and their own opinions to do so, and Facebook and America allow you to do that. I see Facebook as a social networking site, and if they want to spend their time writing their political opinions, then I wouldn’t stop them.” — Anna Elizondo, undeclared sophomore

“This is the first State of the Student address where we stand at a point where we can almost take a breath,” Allen said. “For once in recent memory, we can stop and say: Where are we now? Where has the current taken us?” Allen spoke about tuition increasing nearly 100 percent since 2007, Arizona undergraduate students leaving college with more than $21,000 in student debt since 2010 and graduate students now leaving college with an average of $44,000 in debt. Overall, the university system has lost $428 million in state funding since 2008, Allen said. Perstudent funding fell about 50 percent, and ultimately Arizona has seen the second highest tuition increases in the nation, he added. Allen asked attendees what their contributions would be. He asked if the system would continue as it has always functioned, or if it would move forward. “Destiny belongs to those who seize it for themselves. We are only the victims we allow ourselves to be,” Allen said. “Through unification we can achieve greatness, through greatness we can write history. Bear down.”

Romney cruises to primary victories Mcclatchy tribune
WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney tightened his grip on the Republican presidential nomination Tuesday, sweeping three more primaries and setting the stage for what could be a final showdown on April 24 in Pennsylvania with home-state challenger Rick Santorum. Romney won contests Tuesday in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Wisconsin, assured of taking almost all of their combined 95 delegates, adding to his commanding lead in the tally needed to clinch the nomination. With these three wins, he seized the mantle of inevitability as the party heads into a three-week break before the next round of voting, a period likely to see a growing chorus within the party establishment acclaiming Romney and pressing Santorum to drop out so Republicans can turn their energies to the general election campaign against President Barack Obama. “We won them all,” an exultant Romney told supporters Tuesday evening as he turned his attentions on Obama. “We won a great victory tonight in our campaign to restore the promise of America.” Santorum vowed to stay in the race. He’s looking ahead to the next round of primaries on April 24, hoping for a win and a boost from his home state of Pennsylvania, which he served as a U.S. representative and a senator. All but ceding Wisconsin before the polls closed Tuesday, Santorum headed to Mars, Pa., to watch the returns there.
Early polls suggest a close race in the Keystone state, but other states also voting in three weeks are Connecticut, Delaware, New York and Rhode Island, a Northeast lineup likely to favor Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts. “It’s halftime. Half the delegates in this process have now been selected,” Santorum told supporters in Mars, in southwestern Pennsylvania. “Some in the other camps in this race have said all of the significant people have spoken so far,” he added. “Pennsylvania and half the other people in this country have yet to be heard. … We’ve got three weeks to go out and win this state. … You know me.” He fought hard in Wisconsin, but Romney had the advantage of more TV advertising as well as the backing of popular Rep. Paul Ryan and local tea party favorite Sen. Ron Johnson. About four in five primary voters in Wisconsin told exit polls they believed Romney will win the nomination. In a primary-day interview, Romney told Fox News that it’s important for the Republicans to “get a nominee as soon as we can and be able to focus on Barack Obama.” On Wednesday he will address U.S. newspaper editors in Washington, a day after Obama spoke to them. Romney already had 572 delegates before Tuesday’s voting, exactly half the 1,144 needed to win the nomination, according to an Associated Press tally. Santorum had 273, former House

trying to avoid.” He said the military has not determined whether the settlers’ purchase contract is legal, but even if it is, he said they did not receive military authorization needed for West Bank transactions of this type. “It is a fact that they are staying there illegally,” he said. If settlers are permitted to stay, it would mark the first new foothold by Jewish settlers in Hebron in years. Currently several hundred Jewish settlers live in a heavily guarded, Israeli-controlled section of the city, surrounded by nearly 170,000 Palestinians. The tense situation has made Hebron one of the most volatile cities in the West Bank. The ancient city is revered by Jews and Muslims. Settlers have won support from several right-wing Israeli lawmakers. The settlers say they bought the house last year. The Palestinian family that previously owned the property said some relatives had sold their interest to a Palestinian security official. It is being investigated whether that man, who is reportedly under arrest by the Palestinian Authority, subsequently sold the property to representatives of the settlers. Hebron’s Palestinian mayor accused the settlers of forging the documents. In a similar case three years ago, the military forcibly evicted Jewish settlers who had moved into a disputed property.
HOUSTON — Multiple tornadoes ripped through the Dallas-Fort Worth area Tuesday, tossing truck trailers like Tinkertoys, damaging hundreds of homes and causing numerous injuries, some critical. The mayor of Lancaster, Texas, a suburb about 15 miles south of Dallas, saw one of the twisters approach. “I was leaving a meeting here in town and heard the tornado sirens go off,” Mayor Marcus Knight said at a news conference. After the tornado struck, Knight said multiple injuries were reported, sending some victims to the hospital. No fatalities were reported, he said. At least 300 structures were damaged, half of them severely, he said. The city was declared a disaster area and its recreation center was converted into a shelter. Dallas County sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of looting, and Sheriff Lupe Valdez toured the area, a spokeswoman said. A curfew was imposed overnight and part of the city was blockaded, Knight said. “The public’s safety is paramount,” he said. About 30 miles northwest, a tornado tore through Arlington, home of the Texas Rangers, causing significant damage to homes and businesses, including a nursing home. That city’s mayor signed a disaster declaration. To the southwest in Burleson,

Spinks Airport manager Aaron Barth also spotted a tornado approaching shortly before 1 p.m. “The rotation was present there and slowly descended down, touched down for about 15 seconds one to two miles east,” he said. As he watched, the twister veered away from the airport, causing no injuries or damage, Barth said. Elsewhere, tornadoes tossed tractor-trailers, ripped the roofs off houses, churned walls into planks and strewed them across suburban streets. Emergency responders were still trying to tally damages late Tuesday. “I can’t give damage assessment numbers because the storm system is so broad based, it’s covering such a wide swath of the region,” said Maria
Anita, a Dallas County spokeswoman. At least 12,000 people were without power in Fort Worth after the tornadoes hit, a Tarrant County spokesman said. American Airlines canceled nearly all departures from its hub at DallasFort Worth International Airport on Tuesday evening and diverted others to different airports, said Fort Worthbased American spokesman Tim Smith. An airport spokesman, David Magana, told The Associated Press that hail damaged more than 110 planes. It wasn’t clear how many belonged to American, which along with American Eagle had pulled 101 planes out of service for hail-damage inspections. Magana did not return calls from the Los Angeles Times.

JERUSALEM — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu intervened Tuesday on behalf of Jewish settlers who last week took occupancy of a disputed building in the restive West Bank city of Hebron, requesting that a military order to evict them be postponed. But the Defense Ministry, which oversees Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, gave no indication that it was backing down from plans to remove about 100 settlers, using force if necessary. Netanyahu asked Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak to give the settlers an unspecified period of time to prove their assertion that they purchased the property legally, according to government spokesman Mark Regev. But the military says that the settlers’ occupation of the building, which took place during the night last week, is illegal because they failed to obtain the needed government authorization. Worried about upsetting Hebron’s delicate security balance, the military issued an ultimatum to settlers to vacate voluntarily by 3 p.m. Tuesday. As of Tuesday evening, the settlers remained inside the property and the military had not moved to evict them. “This is a very delicate zone and their staying can harm the stability of the area or might bring Palestinians into the streets,” said Guy Inbar, a spokesman for the military’s civil administration. “That’s what we are

K-12 loans set poor example for youth Kelly Hultgren Daily Wildcat
ollege students who are forced to wave the white flag in the tuition battle and resort to student loans are not alone. Kindergartners across the nation are fighting the same fight. The Wall Street Journal’s personal finance magazine, Smart Money, reported a rise in parents asking for money to fund their children’s education, some holding out their hands as early as their son’s or daughter’s kindergarten days. The article draws its research from prominent loan lender Your Tuition Solution, which works with many high-income parents who don’t qualify for financial aid. In March, the amount of requested money from Your Tuition Solution increased by 10 percent from the same time last year. Next year, the company expects to fund roughly $20 million in loans, according to the article. If there’s not caviar at snack time, Tempur-Pedic mattresses for nap time and weekly appearances by Bill Nye the Science Guy, then these parents are wasting their money. To be clear, spending money on higher education is not a waste of money. A college education should be considered an invaluable expense that will ideally pay for itself in the long run. However, completely disregarding the public school system and paying up to $40,000 per year for private schooling from kindergarten through 12th grade is a waste of money, especially if parents need loans to fuel it. They’re asking for money they don’t have, when there is already an education system available for free. Some parents think “private” is synonymous with superior, so the higher the price, the richer the educational experience. It’s an expensive assumption to make. To put it in perspective, the yearly tuition for the World Class Learning Academy of New York is $31,900 for kindergarten through fifth grade. When a student graduates from this World Class Learning Academy, parents will be left with a $191,400 bill, not including other fees. And if parents took out loans, this sum doesn’t even include the varying interest rates. The yearly tuition for a UA resident undergraduate is approximately $10,035. If tuition stays the same, then a student can receive a degree that will ideally get them though the rest of their lives for approximately $40,140. No, this doesn’t include extraneous fees for attending college, but the figure is still $87,460 less than four years of tuition at World Class Learning Academy, and $151,260 less than the entire six-year program. Interestingly enough, it’s the rich parents who are asking for money. In 2010-11, 20 percent of the families who applied for K-12 loans had incomes of $150,000 or more, according to the latest data from the National Association of Independent Schools, referenced in the Smart Money article. The median American household income is $49,445, according to the 2010 Census — that’s barely more than one year’s tuition for private schooling. The rule everyone knows, but not everyone follows, is: If you don’t have the money, don’t spend it. But considering today’s economic climate, maybe the rule should be, “If you have the money, save it.” Education is a worthwhile expense, but shouldn’t require loans until college or even graduate school. What children will learn from their parents seeking loans is that you can spend money that you don’t have. Just think of the fun they’ll have with credit cards. — Kelly Hultgren is a junior studying journalism and communication.

Pet’s death deserves equal grief as a family member’s T
he death of a loved one can be one of the hardest things to overcome, and the grief and remorse attached to this loss is something that most people are not strangers to. The loss of a pet can be equally painful. This grief, even if only for an animal, should not be surprising or shunned, especially when pet owners have spent 10 or more years caring for their animals. Joe Yonan, a writer for the Washington Post, recently wrote an article where he compared the loss of his Doberman, Red, to the loss of his father and sister. “Somehow, much to my distress, the death of my dog seems even harder,” Yonan said. “I haven’t felt grief quite like this since the death of my previous dog five years ago.” Nearly all of the comments listed under Yonan’s article were

installing gun storage lockers in 732 public buildings across the three university campuses. The legislation would not have required the lockers, and therefore would not provide state funding for them. The financial strains of such renovations may have meant an increase in various costs that students already complain about. But the intangible costs and harm that could have come from this bill outweigh the one benefit of feeling safer. Danger is everywhere, regardless of the place. College campuses are filled with young adults who are still maturing, and putting a gun in their hands may cause more harm than good. Putting an end to this was the smartest decision Arizona lawmakers have made in a long time. Altogether, putting this bill to rest will put the minds of those on campus to rest. — Ashley T.

Police Beat By Elliot P. Hopper Daily Wildcat
Best of Police Beat The University of Arizona Police Department has not updated its record books. So, here are some of our best Police Beat entries of the semester so far:
Sorry, wrong bed (March 7)
A resident assistant from the Manzanita-Mohave Residence Hall reported that a naked man walked into a resident’s dorm room around 2:33 a.m. on Monday. When University of Arizona Police Department officers arrived, they spoke with the resident, who said she was sleeping when a naked man suddenly entered her room and tried to climb into bed with her. The student said she screamed when she noticed him and told him he had probably walked into the wrong room. He asked her, “Are you sure this is the wrong room?” She replied, “Yes!” He turned around and began walking out of the room. Another female student then walked in, grabbed the man and brought him into another room. The woman told officers that she saw “his buttocks and flaccid penis with lots of pubic hair,” and that she wanted to press criminal charges. Officers spoke with the naked man, who told them, “I was very intoxicated and I was spending the night with another girl. I woke up to go to the restroom and when I was done, I accidentally walked into the room. It was an honest mistake.” Officers noticed that the naked man and the other woman laughed whenever the woman who wanted to press charges began to speak. Officers told the man to get completely dressed and step outside so he could be arrested. He was cited for indecent exposure and taken to Pima County Jail.
An unpleasant lunch (March 27)
A female student called UAPD because her boyfriend, another student, was screaming inside of her car and punching the dashboard at 1:50 p.m. on Thursday. Officers arrived at the scene on Helen Street and Warren Avenue and began speaking to the woman, who was crying hysterically. The officers asked where her boyfriend was, and she said that he ran away. She told officers that they were eating at Olive Garden when they started getting in a verbal argument. The argument was over who was paying for lunch, because neither had exact change. She eventually paid for lunch, which she said, “Just made him more upset, and on our way home, he was punching my passenger dashboard.” She said he then started to push the shifter into park and tried to turn off the ignition, which made her keys break and fall onto the floor. She said that when she began calling the police, her boyfriend ripped the phone out of her hand and jumped out of the car, dropping her phone. She said he then stood in front of the car so she could not drive away. Officers found her boyfriend and arrested him. They asked him to tell them what happened, and he told them the same thing that his girlfriend had. He told officers, “I am sorry for my actions and I should have not acted that way.” The woman said she did not wish to press charges or for him to go to jail — she just wanted him to go to counseling for a few months. Her boyfriend was arrested and booked at Pima County Jail for disorderly conduct and domestic violence.
Police Beat is compiled from official University of Arizona Police Department reports. A complete list of UAPD activity can be found at www.uapd.arizona.edu.

JOSÉ ESTEBAN MUÑOZ. The Brown Commons: The Sense of Wildness This lecture explores contemporary “brownness” not simply as a realist or empirical account of Latino/a or migrant experience, but rather as a way of encountering the entire world. Muñoz does so through a discussion of Wildness, a riveting new ﬁlm by Los Angeles artist Wu Tsang that documents radical queer performance at East L.A.’s Silver Platter--a longstanding Latino gay bar that caters to resident and immigrant communities, and features old-school drag performers as well as young genderqueer artists. Manuel Pacheco Integrated Learning Center (ILC) Room 140. Wednesday, April 4th at 5:30pm. “What Were We Thinking? Medical Debacles of the Recent Past” Free Community Lecture with Dr. Andrew Weil. Colossal medical mistakes in my lifetime include: tonsillectomies and appendectomies for everyone, X-ray treatments for acne, thymus ablation, reckless uses of drugs (DES, fen-phen, HRT for all menopausal women to name a few), bone marrow transplant for women with metastic breast cancer, and more. What are we doing now in medicine that we will look back on ﬁfty years from now with the same mixture of disbelief? The endowment for the James E. Dalen Distinguished Lecture for Health Policy supports a series of lectures by visiting professors. The lectures are free and open to the public. Topics cover local, state, national and global health policy issues and connect the academic world with the “real world” of public health. DuVal Auditorium University of Arizona Medical Center 1501 N. Campbell Ave. Wednesday, April 4th from 6:00pm to 7:00pm.
“Travels in Medicine: Exploring the Global Health Community” This exhibit of photographs, presented by the Global Health Forum, is on display in the Java City area of the Library (Room 2101) through April 31st. The Global Health Forum is a UA College of Medicine student club, promoting awareness of health and medicine transcending borders, cultures, and languages. The exhibit is presented in conjunction with the Department of Family and Community Medicine and the Arizona Health Sciences Library. Lalita Abhyankar, a COM second year student, served as the coordinator for the event. Photographs on display were submitted by students, faculty or staff members at the Arizona Health Sciences Center. These photographs depict the participants’ views on global medicine, and range from clinical experiences to more general aspects and inﬂuences on health on an international scale. Through this exhibit, the GHF hopes to provide a glimpse into the lives of community members who are most impacted by global health initiatives. “A Historical and Hysterical Perspective on 67 Years of Living with Arthritis” One of the original creators of the Arizona Arthritis Center will discuss “A Historical and Hysterical Perspective on 67 Years of Living with Arthritis,” at a free presentation, open to the public, on Wednesday, April 4, 6 to 7:30 pm at The University of Arizona Medical Center – University Campus, Chase Bank Auditorium (Room 8403), 1501 N. Campbell Ave. Light refreshments are provided. Seating is limited and prior registration is requested.

The Tucson Modern Streetcar Project, once completed, will connect the UA with downtown Tucson. Project supervisors aim to finish the first phase of construction before fall 2012.

traveling public. We’re not doing it until we absolutely have to,” Gutierrez said. “There is no better time to get that roadway done than during the summer sessions for U of A students.” The majority of construction on campus, which will run from University Boulevard and Fourth Avenue to the UA School of Medicine on Helen Street, is expected to be done in the summer with Second Street completed by the fall 2012 move-in dates. UA Parking and Transportation Services is working closely with the city, meeting weekly for construction updates. They have provided detailed maps on their website showing what segments of Second Street and Park Avenue will be closed on what specific dates. “We’ve had a pretty large-scale effort out to inform people on what’s upcoming,” said Michael Graham, public information officer

discussing coursework, but also personal experiences, making the class more interesting.” The class examines how both the community and youth sports organizations have changed their programs to appear more professional. Bell and her class discuss how these types of changes impact coaching styles, parental involvement and media or commercial influences. In addition, the course has incorporated about 50 different types of students with different majors and athletic backgrounds. “The course discusses youth development, coaching, parental influence, and everything about athletic training and processes,” said Christina Palmese, a communication sophomore. “I really enjoy the course because it goes in detail about things I would never think about such as coaching techniques or

according to Allie Peña, a senor studying wildlife conservation and management and student in the class. Old Main is a building that is worth preserving, she said, because of its historical significance. Riley’s class is not the only group working on this project, as Facilities Management and Campus Planning are also conserving Old Main. Woody Remencus, the crew chief for ground services with Facilities Management, said he thinks it is great when faculty and students work together to solve a problem such as this.

with the Department of Transportation. Nearly $48 million has been spent on the project so far. The streetcar is expected to increase property values and create jobs during construction and in the long run. “I hope that … it actually is something that generates revenue as opposed to continually sinks it,” said Chris Gonzales, a graduate student in the UA medicine program. The end result will be an environmentally friendly electric streetcar that will run from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m., making 17 stops every 10 minutes during the day and every 20 minutes in the evening. The project is linked to Sun Tran and will have the same cost as the city’s public transportation. Seven vehicles will be running along the tracks, each one with a 180-passenger capacity. “Obviously getting under construction and closing roadways … is an inconvenience,” Gutierrez said. “Eventually they know that they’ll have a streetcar … that they can ride from point A to point B in a fast, efficient and cost-effective way.”
why certain things happen in athletics and health.” To help design the course, Bell did a lot of research, some of which showed that the youth is more able to learn when physically active. Studies also showed that some children have less access to team sports, especially when their families cannot afford fees involved with group activity. Rachel Dunn, an elementary education sophomore, said that as a physical activity advocate, this course caught her interest. “This class has taught me a lot about the different aspects of youth sport and has really shed light on my experiences as both a player and now as a youth soccer coach.” Dunn added that the class is relatable for her because she is able to consider new coaching techniques that she can utilize in practices for her young players. Bell said she is unsure about the direction the course will take in the future since it is still fairly new, but hopes to see it improve and grow in later semesters.
senior studying natural resources and conservation biology, said she thinks this is a vital project for water conservation because it is an issue that will be very important for the university in the coming years. “It’s cool to make a lasting mark on campus by doing this,” Starks added. The final goal of the project, Riley said, is to improve the flow of water away from Old Main in a discreet manner without it looking like anything around the building has changed. After finishing the first part of the project on the southeast side of the building, it was clear to Riley that they had done just that. “Right when we were done, someone started walking through (the repaired areas),” he said. “We thought, ‘OK, we’ve been successful.’”

Diamond pumpkin pendants and songs about Fabio typify Riff Raff and Lil B’s brand of rap By K.C. Libman
B The Based God and Riff Raff — two rappers who are equal parts appalling and compelling. There is a time to use rap as a tool While there’s little information to speak to the masses, to inspire on Houston’s Riff Raff, there’s uprisings and movements and to something to be said for a guy with speak to the people for a greater the world’s tightest cornrows and good. There is also a time when rap abstract facial hair patterns. inspires ghost-riding the whip and Riff Raff comes across as a methbreaking glass bottles, and a time addicted Kevin Federline who when it’s just an excuse to sing about claims to be a “part-time King Tut.” Ellen DeGeneres. How can you not love him? We’re Rap is far more diverse than most halfway into 2012 and this guy is still people give it credit for. For all the slick proudly rocking iced-out grills. It’d production and articulate musicians be easy to write him off as a gutter who dominate the modern rap phenomenon, but the 26-yearplaying field, there’s been something old MC possesses an intangible odd brewing on its benches. infectiousness. It’s rap that’s characterized by Look at Riff Raff’s “Marc Jacobs.” catchy virulence, a prototypical I would eat my own shoe if this inability to stay on the beat and a guy could spell Marc Jacobs’ name comical facade. And it’s led by Lil correctly on the first try, but what’s Daily Wildcat
important is the song and its visual throwback to the early 2000s. The video is reminiscent of Waka Flocka Flame’s “Hard In The Paint,” or virtually any early Odd Future videos: It’s about people dancing in the street and drinking cough syrup out of styrofoam cups. If this isn’t a postmodern American portrait, then I don’t know what is. Between Riff Raff’s jack-o-lantern diamond pendant (striking lust into Rick Ross’ heart) and his way-toowide-eyed stare (Riff Raff may also be a swagged-out zombie), “Marc Jacobs” is going to be the fastest two minutes of your life that you’ll watch over and over again. Anyone who has the balls to rhyme Jacobs with Jacobs has to be respected regardless of his ludicrous nature. This leads us to the advent of
Lil B The Based God. Even if Lil B was just blowing raspberries into a microphone, I would still unabashedly admire him for the fact that he considers himself a deity. The 22-year-old Berkeley, Calif., rapper is the poster boy for viral sensationalism, as his unreal catalog of 1,500 songs generated a wave of buzz. There’s no question that the boy has placed quantity far in front of quality, but it’s put him in an echelon of his own. Few 22-yearolds can say they’ve accomplished something similar, and none have done so by writing odes to Dr. Phil, Charlie Sheen and Justin Bieber. There’s nothing more ignorant than claiming to be an incarnation of Miley Cyrus, but lo and behold, The Based God has that covered as well. If these guys can’t realize the
extent of their impact, or are just too strung out to notice how insane they really are, then the world should stop warring for a moment so that we may pray they both never reproduce. They’re both so terrible that they’re good, or possibly over-criticized idiot savants. Regardless of the public’s hyperpolarized stance, this genre should probably be coined as “metarap.” It’s so baffling and catchy that party hits are bound to be culled from it. Yet its elements are singularly underwhelming, making it a paradox unto itself. Don’t dwell on the weirdness for too long. If you find yourself in need of a house party hit in the near future, a song about Jose Canseco or Mel Gibson just may be what The Based God ordered.

New consoles change video game landscape Jason Krell Daily Wildcat
race yourself, new consoles are coming. That means uncertainty about almost everything. Until a console is on the shelves, nobody can claim to know any of its features. Even if Nintendo, Microsoft or Sony makes an official announcement, the company could always change it at the last minute. Some things are more likely than others, of course, but that doesn’t keep people guessing about everything. That’s where the industry is today. The Wii U is set to be released later this year, and a few details have been mentioned, but all the recent talk is about the Playstation Orbis and Microsoft’s new console — which will not be referred to as the Xbox 720. After the online video gaming news site Kotaku broke news of some rumors about Sony’s next console — including the name — the Internet has been buzzing with discussion about its implications. The biggest one, which could drastically change the video game industry, is the Orbis’ potential to be incompatible with used games. Yes, while Kotaku’s source wasn’t clear on how used games would be
restricted, it did seem to be clear about that fact. How does this change things? Well, for one, stores like GameStop could lose a big source of revenue. Of course, considering the fact that no one likes how much of a profit GameStop makes buying used games for nothing and selling them for prices close to what they cost at release — except GameStop — it may not sound so bad. But it affects you too. Buying used games for a cheap price will be a thing of the past. Now, at best, gamers will have to not only pay for the game itself but also an extra fee to unlock the full experience. Don’t buy used games? You’re still going to be inconvenienced. To authenticate a game as both yours and new, the Orbis will have to connect to the Internet for the game to even start up. Want to bring your game to a friend’s house and play it there? Better hope the Internet is working so you can recover your PlayStation Network ID. It’s not that rare of a problem, but it seems unnecessary. What’s more, there’s also
speculation that the Orbis, and at some point possibly all consoles, will no longer have physical games. That means players wouldn’t actually own a disc, but just the right to play the game — a right that could be revoked under certain circumstances. It will also require connectivity to the Internet, which will still be an inconvenience for some. Even if these are the only changes to the industry, they’ll make it almost unrecognizable from how it was before. No more discs, no more used games, games being reliant on hard drives susceptible to being wiped clean accidentally or hacked — all concerns to fall on the shoulders of the gamer and not the industry. That’s what the matter really boils down to in the end. These next consoles could shift control away from the gamer and into the hands of the console and game makers. And, just like any system of government, taking control away from the people is terrible. It’s important to remember that these possibilities are just that — possible. They may never come to pass, especially if there’s enough uproar. Gamers still have enough power to sway even big companies like Microsoft and Sony, but that may not last for much longer. Only ime will tell. — Jason Krell is the assistant copy chief. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter via @WildcatArts.
April is one of the busiest months of the school year. Finals, projects, papers, graduation or summer plans can be overwhelming, and prevent us from enjoying the beautiful weather. But go ahead and give yourself a break. The following events will give you an escape from campus life, and are worth it:
Tucson Padres Minor League baseball The Tucson Padres’ season runs from April 5 to Aug. 26. With mostly evening games, it is the perfect way to take a night off from studying with friends. Besides being America’s favorite pastime, the Tucson Padres’ games also have different promotional events to attract guests. Catch a Thursday game for Budweiser Thirsty Thursday, which features 16-ounce beers for $1.50. Stop in for postgame fireworks, $1 hot dogs on Wednesdays and Twofor-Tuesday, which features two tickets for the price of one. Support the Triple-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres while spending time with friends at Kino Sports Complex.
Afri-Can On April 13, The Forgotten Children of Senegal will host an event at Armory Park Ballroom. From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., guests are invited to celebrate West African culture while also raising money for the street children of Senegal. There will be music, food and dancing. Performers include “Sticks and Fingers,” a steel drum percussion group that plays energetic Afro-Caribbean sound. Uzo and Maxame dancers will accompany the musical performances with an evening of boogieing. Money raised through donations and a silent auction will provide clothing, safety and homes for the Forgotten Children of Senegal. The event is $10 per person at the door.
The Tucson Taco Festival What could possibly be better than $2 tacos, homemade salsa and guacamole, more than 100 types of tequila and live lucha libre wrestling? On April 28, The Arizona Taco Festival in Scottsdale is moving the party to Tucson in the first ever Tucson Taco Festival at Rillito Downs. Guests are invited to try chicken, pork, beef and seafood tacos prepared by some of the best amateur and professional taco makers in Tucson. The event costs $10 per person and benefits the Anne Rita Monahan Foundation, an organization that raises money to cure ovarian cancer. The event also features a hot chile pepper eating contest, margarita competition, lucha libre wrestling, a VIP tent and more. Since everyone has to eat, grab some friends and take your lunch break at the festival.

Calif. shooting suspect Woman, 80, pilots sought to settle score plane after husband MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE
OAKLAND, Calif. â€” The police dispatcherâ€™s voice is calm and measured. The reporting party, she says, â€œis advising shots are coming from inside the building. People are running out screaming. â€Ś Thereâ€™s a female, bleeding, sheâ€™s down on the ground, facedown on the concrete and bleeding.â€? When it was over, six students and a secretary at a small Christian college were shot to death, allegedly at the hands of a 43-year-old South Korean national who had once been a nursing student there. On Tuesday, a portrait began to emerge of a troubled man who apparently returned to Oikos University to settle a score. One L. Goh had been expelled from Oikos this year â€œfor behavioral problems, anger management,â€? Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan told reporters Tuesday. Goh had been teased for his broken English, and he felt bullied and angry, Jordan said.
He arrived at the campus in an industrial section of East Oakland on Monday morning looking for a certain administrator, officials said, but when he couldnâ€™t find her, he grabbed a secretary and headed to a classroom. He allegedly ordered the students inside to line up against the wall. When some refused, he opened fire, officials said. He had time during the rampage, authorities believe, to reload and continue shooting. Six women and one man were killed Monday. They ranged in age from 21 to 40 and were from South Korea, Nigeria, Nepal and the Philippines, largely immigrant students learning English, nursing, theology and Asian medicine. â€œWe donâ€™t believe that any of the victims were the ones that teased him,â€? Jordan said. â€œWe believed he stopped (shooting) because people were able to use the phone. He could have heard people calling 911.â€? Goh had yet to be charged Tuesday afternoon. He was scheduled to

appear in court Wednesday. Police say Goh purchased the handgun legally in California this year. After leaving the carnage behind, authorities believe, he headed to Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline near Oakland International Airport and tossed the gun into the water. His next stop, authorities say, was a Safeway at the Alameda South Shore Center, a mall about five miles from Oikos University. Goh went to the grocery store sometime in late morning or early afternoon, sources at the mall said. â€œHe tripped and fell coming out the door,â€? said one source, who requested that her name not be used because police were investigating. â€œA security officer came over to make sure he was OK, and the guy turned emotional and broke down and asked the security guy to call the Police Department.â€? Alameda police officers detained Goh until Oakland officers could retrieve him.
falls unconscious MCCLATCHY TRIBUNE
LOS ANGELES â€“ Flight conditions were ideal as the Cessna twin-engine plane flew through the clouds above Sturgeon Bay, Wis. There was a very mild breeze, sunshine and clear skies, but inside the cockpit was another story, authorities said. The small planeâ€™s pilot, 81-year-old John Collins, had fallen unconscious, leaving his wife, Helen Collins, 80, to take the controls Monday evening, Door County Sheriff Terry Vogel told the Los Angeles Times. At 5 p.m. authorities were dispatched to clear the streets as she prepared to land, Vogel said. Collins had received some flight training but is not a licensed pilot and was unfamiliar with the Cessna. Robert Vuksanovic and his wife, Catherine, both licensed pilots, were called in to help the elderly woman
to safety, Robert taking to the skies to shadow Collinsâ€™ flight and Catherine communicating with Collins from the ground via radio, helping her manipulate the controls. The plane Robert flew, a Beechcraft Bonanza, was also owned by John Collins. An hour after her initial radio call, Helen Collins touched the plane down roughly at Cherryland Airport. The plane bounced once and then hit the ground nose first, skidding into a grassy area and coming to rest on its nose, according to the sheriffâ€™s report. Though the Vuksanovics were helpful, Vogel credited Helen Collins with being able to keep her wits about her as she piloted the plane with her ailing husband at her side. Upon landing, Helen Collins complained of back pain, while John Collins was still unresponsive. Her heroics were not enough to save him. He was pronounced dead at 6:38 p.m.

The No. 4 Arizona baseball team returns to the field tonight in Orem, Utah, to take on Utah Valley (12-11) for the second time this season, and head coach Andy Lopez will have to do something he’s avoided for six games now — use the middle of his bullpen. “When we go to the middle part of the pen, it’ll be a concern until the day I put this season away,” Lopez said. Since the Wildcats were swept at home in a two-game series against New Mexico State, Lopez has only used his three starters and the two closing relievers — Stephen Manthei and Mathew Troupe. And in the small sample size, the strategy has worked. The Wildcats (21-7, 7-2 Pac-12) are 5-1 over the stretch with wins on the road at No. 20 Oregon State and a sweep against then-No. 2 Stanford. The Wildcats’ three starters — Kurt Heyer, Konner Wade and James Farris — all threw more than eight innings this past weekend and Wade and Farris threw complete games. Manthei was the only bullpen pitcher to face the Stanford lineup in the single inning he pitched Friday. “My concern (coming into the season) was the middle part of the pen,” Lopez said, “but if the starters do what they’re doing, then you don’t see the middle part of the pen.” But for the midweek game tonight, Lopez won’t have that luxury, and instead he will have to rely on someone from the middle of the rotation to start. The Wildcats have already played the Wolverines once this season — winning 12-6 at home — and it was a perfect example of Lopez’s concerns. Starter Tyler Hale was shaky from the get-go, surrendering seven hits and four earned runs through just 2.1 innings before he was pulled for freshman Lucas Long. Long allowed two earned runs and four hits in five innings, giving him his first ever win as the Wildcats rebounded from an early 5-1 hole. But Long (2-2) hasn’t been able to sustain that level of play as of late, and he is one of several pitchers who Lopez is avoiding. Long’s 6.56 ERA is now the second worst on the team, but the remainder of the bullpen isn’t much better. None of the relievers have an ERA lower than a 4.50 and the five middle relievers have combined for a WHIP of 1.77, which is considered very poor. Lopez said the state of the bullpen is reflected in the fact that the team has signed 12 pitchers in the upcoming recruiting class.
The Arizona softball team is historically one of the most prolific in the nation, but you’d never be able to tell by the lack of student support at home games. Arizona’s successes have been well documented. With Mike Candrea at the helm, the Wildcats made it to the postseason Women’s College World Series 22 times in 23 years, from 1988 to 2010, and won eight national championships. In fact, the UA softball team has the most championships on campus. The Wildcats’ Hillenbrand Memorial Stadium averages slightly more than 2,500 fans per game, but almost none, apart from other athletes showing support for their comrades, are students. “We’re always for more students coming to our games, but it’s not really realistic with softball,” sophomore pitcher Shelby Babcock said. “I like our fan base right now. We have a lot of people that come out to watch us. They may not be students, but I don’t think we notice it too much.” Arizona is in the midst of a 23-9 season and has nine home games remaining before postseason play begins, yet students are still reluctant to attend games. “I’ve never been to one. I just don’t have the time,” UA student Steffanie Malepeai said. “Softball is awesome, but I don’t think students understand the concept really, even though it’s practically the same as baseball.” Arizona baseball, which moved off-
campus to Hi Corbett Field to start its season, has seen an attendance boost. More than 10,000 fans showed up to last weekend’s series against No. 2 Stanford. The difference, however, is that the softball team does not carry the same weight that “Arizona baseball” does. “We’d love to get the college crowd,” assistant coach Larry Ray said. “Hillenbrand has been there since 1993, and most of the season ticket holders are a little older, but we’d love the college crowd. They bring an energy that all college sports kind of feed off of and live through.” UA students may not be attending simply because softball is not a revenuegenerating sport like football or basketball, and thus does not garner the type of attention or coverage those sports do. “I understand football and basketball are more popular, and rightfully so because they get more coverage,” Ray said. “But we’ve been to places like UNM (New Mexico) that have tremendous student support, and it has a great effect on the game.” To solve the attendance problem, the Arizona athletic department has hosted events such as the “red-out” this past Saturday, in which the firstever panoramic photograph was taken of a women’s sporting event at Hillenbrand. Babcock said the biggest problem in getting people to attend is that softball, unless you’ve played, is a hard sport to love and follow. “I love softball, so obviously I would go watch games,” she said. “But I don’t know how other people look at it.”
What we’ve learned: Arizona spring football Rich Rodriguez using spring as the time to evaluate the roster By Zack Rosenblatt Daily Wildcat
Amy webb / Daily Wildcat
James Farris pitches against Stanford on Sunday in a game that clinched a three-game sweep for the Wildcats.
“Here’s the reality of it,” Lopez said. “You get to know your club the longer you play (in a season), one way or another.”
Impressive starting pitching
While there is a lack of confidence in the bullpen, last weekend’s series against Stanford showed it might not be a major problem during the typical weekend schedule. Wade’s performance earned him Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week honors as he allowed just three hits and struck out seven in the series, clinching a 4-2 victory. “That kid, day in and day out, he’s just a phenomenal player,” junior Alex Mejia said. “Every time you go out there, you know you have a chance to win.” But choosing which pitcher had the best weekend was tough even for Lopez. Wade was his initial response, but there were compelling arguments for the other two starters as well. Heyer was matched up against the potential No. 1 pick in June’s MLB Draft in Mark Appel and only gave up two earned runs with 11 strikeouts. Farris had some impressive stats of his own. The sophomore retired 14 straight batters at one point and didn’t walk a single batter or allow a single leadoff man on base. Farris said after the game on Sunday that it’s really starting to become a competition between the three starters for who can perform the best and get the most wins before season’s end. And Farris acknowledged that he is prepared to pitch the entire game, and it’s his goal every time he steps on the mound. “I like to give the bullpen some rest too,” Farris added, “because they throw a lot and it helps them out.” Frreshman Tyler Crawford will start tonight against Utah Valley.
The season doesn’t start for another five months, but the Arizona football team has been playing since mid-March when spring practices started. The Wildcats have held six practices and two scrimmages thus far, and the main thing learned about this team is that it’s way too early to evaluate Arizona as it tries to adjust to the new scheme implemented by head coach Rich Rodriguez. Throughout the spring, Rodriguez has emphasized that this period of practices and scrimmages is mainly for educational purposes and for finding out what type of players he has. “We’re still in evaluation mode and we will be all the way up until the last practice of the spring,” Rodriguez said. “We’ll get every scrimmage, every practice we’ll get an idea of who’s ready to play. Every practice now and the first two weeks of practice will be huge evaluation days as well.” So, in the spirit of evaluation, here is what we have learned so far during the spring:
If Matt Scott gets hurt, Arizona is in trouble
Rodriguez and co-offensive coordinator Calvin Magee have both expressed how impressed they are with the play and leadership of senior quarterback Matt Scott. The success, or failures, of the 2012 season likely fall on the shoulders of the Corona, Calif., native. If Scott gets hurt, don’t expect Arizona to make much noise in the Pac-12. To say there is a lack of depth at the quarterback position would be an understatement. Behind Scott, who redshirted during the 2011 season, there is Richard Morrison, a converted receiver, and two sophomore walk-ons in Alex Cappellini and Tyler D’Amore. There are two freshmen coming in the fall, both from Texas, in Josh Kern and Javelle Allen, but the idea that Arizona may have to rely on a freshman quarterback doesn’t inspire confidence. The fact that the Wildcats can’t afford to lose Scott to injury has made it pretty clear that Rodriguez won’t be able to run the ball as much through his quarterback as he has in the past with the likes of Pat White and Denard Robinson. Allen has the right skill set for this offense — he ran for 1,497 yards and 22

touchdowns his senior year — but he Walk-on Johnny Jackson and sophois still just a freshman and without any more Tyler Slavin have had solid experience in Rodriguez’s complex springs as well. system.
The Wildcats have weapons
At practice on Monday, Magee giddily talked about the talent-laden backfield he has to work with, and for good reason. At the top is Ka’Deem Carey, a talented sophomore that ran for 425 yards and six touchdowns in his freshman year and in the Rodriguez spread-option offense he has the potential to break out in a big way. Behind him, Daniel Jenkins is a speedy runner who didn’t get many touches last year, but capitalized when he got the ball, averaging 5.7 yards per carry on 31 carries. Jenkins was a standout in the Wildcats’ first scrimmage in Glendale, Ariz., with 81 rushing yards. Carey and Jenkins, combined with Kylan Butler, make up what Scott likes to call the “threeheaded monster.” The depth doesn’t stop there, as Arizona also has power in fullback Taimi Tutogi and senior tailback Greg Nwoko. At receiver, Arizona might not be as deep as it was last season, but talentwise, the receivers are no slouches. Dan Buckner and Austin Hill were two of Arizona’s best playmakers in 2011 when given the opportunity, and speed demon Garic Wharton has opened some eyes in spring ball.
No depth (chart)
In pretty much every interview Rodriguez has conducted with the media this spring, he has indicated that there is no depth chart right now, and there won’t be for a while. “I don’t even know if we’ll have a definitive two-deep,” Rodriguez said. “We’ll have a general idea of what guys we think are ready to play but there’s going to be a lot of young guys getting a chance again this fall.” Last year the Wildcats lost Jonathan McKnight, Greg Nwoko, Adam Hall, Willie Mobley and Jake Fischer to torn ACLs and, other than Hall, they all missed every game. Most of the five have been participating this spring, but lingering effects of the injury have kept McKnight out of most drills. Injuries to linemen Mickey Baucus and Jack Baucus, along with the suspension of tackle Fabbians Ebbele, have left the Wildcats ultra-thin in the interior, forcing offensive line coach Robert Anae to give guards Chris Putton and Eric Bender-Ramsay reps at the all-important left tackle position that protects Scott’s blindside. Rodriguez might not have a depth chart, but a lack of depth at most positions means Arizona can’t afford to lose five key players to ACL injuries again.

Is Arizona being overhyped for 2012-13? With the No. 1-ranked recruiting class in the country coming in, expectations are high for the men’s basketball team. Will the Wildcats live up to them?
entucky just won the NCAA championship with a roster made up primarily of freshmen from a No. 1-ranked recruiting class, headed by Player of the Year Anthony Davis. Arizona struggled this past season, failing to make the NCAA tournament, but the fact that Kentucky was able to win it all with primarily underclassmen has Arizona fans excited for next year and its top-notch recruiting class coming in. ESPN’s Andy Katz has Arizona ranked at No. 12 in his way-too-early 2012-13 preseason rankings. Considering last year’s undeserved preseason No. 16 ranking, many might point to this as another case of overhype. Not so fast. With the ubertalented recruiting class of Gabe York, Brandon Ashley, Grant Jerrett and Kaleb Tarczewski, Arizona will have talent for days. The Wildcats were forced to play an undersized, 6-foot-7 Jesse Perry at center last year. In Jerrett, Tarczewski, Ashley and sophomore Angelo Chol, the Wildcats have four players who are taller than Perry and expected to be in the rotation. Placing such high expectations on freshmen doesn’t always prove fruitful. But the development of Chol, the expected progression of Nick Johnson , the return of Arizona’s best player in Solomon Hill and a healthy Kevin Parrom will provide the Wildcats with depth they haven’t seen in quite a while.
Josiah Turner is the biggest question mark. After being suspended indefinitely before the Pac-12 tournament, many have questioned whether or not he will return to the program. If Turner returns, his rough freshman year will be a thing of the past, and with all of the weapons around him, he has the ability to become the true point guard the city of Tucson thought it was getting last season. If Turner does not return, Arizona should still be able to weather the storm. Head coach Sean Miller is expected to add at least one more recruit, and with a healthy Jordin Mayes and Johnson’s ability to play point guard, the Wildcats would still be a contender in the Pac-12. With Turner in tow, and playing the way he is capable of, Katz’s No. 12 ranking will be an accurate one. Even without him, Arizona will still be a favorite in the Pac-12. —Zack Rosenblatt is the assistant sports editor. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org on Twitter via @WildcatSports.
Solomon Hill Colin Darland / Daily Wildcat
ased on talent alone, Arizona is a top-10 team in the country next season. Nick Johnson, Josiah Turner (pending his return), Angelo Chol, Brandon Ashley, Gabe York, Grant Jerrett and Kaleb Tarczewski make up one of the most gifted groups of underclassmen in the entire NCAA. Combine that young talent with the veteran leadership of Solomon Hill and Kevin Parrom and the coaching prowess of Sean Miller and the Wildcats could own the Pac-12 and get back to the Big Dance. But as this past season proved, talent doesn’t always translate into victories. So with that said, Arizona in no way should be considered the No. 12 team in the country heading into next season, as ESPN writer Andy Katz predicted on Tuesday. There are simply far too many uncertainties surrounding next year’s team to place it among the elite squads in the country. First and foremost, will Turner get his act together after a disappointing freshman season? Will he even be at Arizona next season? If Turner can’t follow Miller’s requests or opts to leave Arizona, the Wildcats will be without a true point guard. Johnson and York can play a little
point, and Jordin Mayes is well versed at the position, but none of those three are true, pass-first point guards. Arizona is making a run at Duquesne transfer T.J. McConnell, but even if he chooses the UA over Virginia he’ll have to sit out a year due to transfer rules. Name the last No. 12-ranked team that didn’t have a floor general. You can cut your Wikipedia rampage short — that team doesn’t exist. And the Turner situation is only one of several uncertainties surrounding next year’s team. Can Parrom stay healthy? Will Johnson and Chol be able to make the leap from serviceable freshmen to elite Pac-12 starters? Will Arizona’s fab four develop fast enough to contribute early and often? Although not as highly touted as the 2012 class, Arizona’s 2011 recruiting class proved what happens when you place massive expectations on four 18-year-old kids. Arizona will be good. Miller finally has a team full of his recruits, and the Wildcats will make the NCAA tournament with at least two of UA’s four freshmen living up to the hype. But all of that most certainly doesn’t add up to a No. 12 ranking, especially before these kids have even stepped foot on the floor of McKale Center. Proceed with caution before calling the 2012-13 Wildcats elite. — Mike Schmitz is a marketing senior. He can be reached at email@example.com or on Twitter via @WildcatHoops.
