Study: Fewer believe in god Turner set to By Stephanie Casanova DAILY WILDCAT

Davante Metoyer has considered himself a Christian his whole life. But lately, he’s been less inclined to tell people. “I’m starting to like, be embarrassed to say I’m Christian, only for the fact that so many people are putting negative connotations to the Christian community, like calling gay people out,” said Metoyer, a pre-physiology sophomore. Religion in America undergoes constant change and is very diverse, according to a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center. It’s becoming more popular to not claim any religious affiliation, as evidenced by the 1 in 4 young adults who claimed no religious affiliation in the survey. Contemporary politics play a role in

the separation from organized religion among the young. Most Americans say they would like politicians to talk less about religion, according to another Pew Research Center study published in March 2012. The growing connection between political and religious views creates a stereotype that college-aged individuals do not want to be associated or affiliated with. Religious open-mindedness is becoming a modern trend, according to experts in the UA’s religious studies department. Karen Seat, an associate professor of classics, said these ideas of tolerance and acceptance seem to be most catered to by the freedom of not being affiliated with organized religion. But many students hold onto religion, though they deal with being judged as well.

“When people think about Christianity, (they think) Christians are all conservative, they’re all anti-gay,” said Maizie Simpson, a journalism sophomore. “I’m not like those people that are on the extreme side, so really I am less inclined to tell people that I am a Christian, because I don’t want them looking at me with that distorted view.” After attending Christian schools as a child, Simpson continues to attend church and is a member of the Navigators, a Christian club on campus. She said she understands why some people, especially college students, might begin to become independent from organized religion. “It is a time of transition. It’s where you’re out on your own discovering

face extreme DUI charges By Zack Rosenblatt DAILY WILDCAT

Former UA point guard Josiah Turner is set to appear in Pima County Justice Court on May 17 after being arrested for driving under the influence early Thursday morning, according to police. Turner is charged with minor in possession of alcohol in body, MIP operating a vehicle, driving under the influence to the slightest degree, DUI with a blood alcohol content of .08 or greater and extreme DUI with a blood alcohol content of .15 or greater. Turner was pulled over at Fifth Street and Highland Avenue after running a red light at around Josiah Turner 1:31 a.m. on Thursday. When the former UA officer asked Turner for his license, point guard registration and insurance, he was unable to produce any of them. During the questions, Turner had “slurred speech and was mumbling his answers” and the officer smelled alcohol coming from him. The officer asked Turner to step out of the car he was driving, a 1993 Infiniti Sedan, so he could determine who the owner of the car was. Turner kept saying that he was driving his “bro’s car and just wanted to park it and get back to his dorm,” according to the police report. When asked if he knew the car owner’s name, Turner said he only knew the first name. Another officer arrived and administered tests to determine if Turner was under the influence. When the second officer arrived, Turner was leaning against his car. Turner identified himself with his CatCard and said he had never been issued a driver’s license. The officer noticed that Turner had a “strong odor of intoxicants emitting from his breath” and that Turner’s eyes were red and watery. Turner admitted to drinking alcohol that night, a “shot or two of beer.” Based on his performance in sobriety tests and the results of a portable breath test, Turner was arrested at 2:06 a.m. After being handcuffed and taken to UAPD, Turner agreed to submit to a test. The arresting officer conducted two breath tests using a Breathalyzer, and the results of the breath tests were 0.15 and 0.16 BAC, well over the legal limit of 0.08. The officer prepared a Dean of Students referral for Turner, and Turner was released to his friend at 3:37 a.m.

When Javier Sicilia’s son was kidnapped and murdered in Mexico in March 2011, he decided he’d had it with Mexico’s war on drugs. Sicilia, who was once a poet, put his pen down and instead ensured that his voice was heard through activism and peaceful protests. The world-renowned peace activist and poet spoke to the UA community on Monday in a talk titled “Mexico’s Future: Peace or Endless War?” Sicilia addressed the issues of who is responsible for Mexico’s drug war and what can be done to end it. Sicilia, a native of Mexico, said the statistics are imprecise. The Mexican government has reported 48,000 dead since the war started, almost six years ago. The Pentagon has reported 150,000 dead, according to Sicilia. “These figures increase day to day, and below them is a terrorized population,” Sicilia said. “For every consumption of theirs (Americans’ drug consumption), we have someone dead.” Mexican President Felipe Calderón declared war on drug traffickers shortly after he took office in December 2006. He sent the army “to the streets to pursue

delinquents,” Sicilia said. “It’s created a state of war … and this means violations to human rights from the army,” he added. Both the Mexican and the U.S. government are responsible for this war, Sicilia said. The U.S. has taken a public health policy issue and turned it into a national security issue. In order to protect and keep Americans from using drugs, the U.S. is providing weapons and advising Mexican military to combat drug traffickers. “Since drugs enter from Mexican territory, they’ve (the U.S.) created a war for us,” Sicilia said. “They tell us we have to combat drug traffickers and they invest in

Roughly 15,000 UA employees will not have access to their email from 5 p.m. on May 18 to the morning of May 21. During that time period, employees will be transferred to a new system. After the switch, they will still have all of their old emails and calendar events, only in a new online setting, according to Patti Fastje, assistant director of University Information Technology Services. The new system will be hosted on university servers instead of on Microsoft cloud software, explained Jessica Woodworth, principal systems administrator with UITS. It will also include an updated version of the email instant messaging system and additional features. Woodworth said UITS launched a pilot of the new email system on March 26. About 800 users switched to new accounts. The switch on May 18 will affect all other employee email accounts, which is somewhere in the 15,000-user range, she said. Email addresses for faculty, classified staff, appointed personnel and retirees will not change. Student workers whose addresses contain “stwk” will change to an address that ends in catworks.arizona.edu. During the migration, employees will not be able to

violence in Mexico, on legitimate violence.â€? Kidnappings and murders have made it unsafe for people to live comfortably in Mexico. According to Sicilia, in certain towns, people are afraid to leave their home after 7 p.m. Sicilia said crime in Mexico is currently addressed with 98 percent impunity. “If we were in Mexico and we decided, right now, to commit a crime, murder someone ‌ there would be a 2 percent chance that we’d get caught,â€? Sicilia said. Sicilia asked that the U.S. not only legalize, control and market its own drugs but also regulate and better control weapon policies. “Just as they’re arming and militarily advising Mexican armed forces for the combat, they’re also allowing high-powered firearms to be smuggled daily through the border and arming the drug traffickers,â€? Sicilia said. The U.S. has the right to maintain and protect its people’s right to bear arms, something Sicilia said he doesn’t quite understand but is in no position to question the American belief or culture. What Sicilia asked for is reform, so that these weapons don’t make it into the hands of Mexican drug traffickers, he said. “You can go to a gun fair here and buy them,â€? said Margaret Wilder, an associate professor in Latin American studies. “It’s really easy to pass all of the arms that are legal here to get illegally into Mexico.â€? Inspired by graduate students, Wilder organized Sicilia’s visit and was pleased with the number of people who attended the event, she said, adding that the war on drugs is a bi-national problem. On an individual level, Sicilia was asked how citizens living on the border can help stop the drug war. Sicilia suggested that Americans urge politicians, whether President Barack Obama or local congressmen, to control arms and reform drug laws by making them a public health policy issue. Raul Graciano, a mechanical engineering sophomore, was raised in Mexico and recently began to read about the drug war and Sicilia’s movements. Graciano lost an uncle in Mexico when he was 10 years old, and more recently lost two friends because of the drug war. “Most of the college community who consume drugs, they should become aware of what are the consequences of consuming drugs,â€? Graciano said. “They are funding the cartels.â€?

COLOMA-LOTUS VALLEY, Calif. — In the week since a fireball shot across the sky and exploded, scattering a rare type of meteorite over California’s Gold Country, these hills have drawn a new rush of treasure seekers. Once again there are lively saloons, fortune hunters jockeying for prime spots and astounding tales of luck — including that of Brenda Salveson, a local who found a valuable space rock while walking her dog Sheldon, named after the theoretical physicist on the TV show “The Big Bang Theory.� It started April 22, Earth Day, with a blazing streak across a morning sky and a sonic boom that the next day had the older women in the “Gentle Stretching to Beautiful Music� class at Sierra Ballet comparing notes on how hard their windows shook. Eight hundred miles away, while windows were still rattling, Robert Ward in Prescott, Ariz., was getting alerts. A 35-year-old professional meteorite hunter and dealer, he pays for tips and keeps a bag packed, ready to go anywhere in the world to chase a meteorite. On Tuesday, after 16 hours of driving, he scanned a parking lot in Lotus in the pre-dawn not knowing what type of rock he was seeking. But when he spotted a dark space pebble, he immediately recognized it as carbonaceous chondrite, meteorites containing water and carbon — the type scientists long to study for insights into how life began on Earth and possibly in other places. “I was trembling,� Ward said. “It’s the rarest of the rare. It’s older than the sun. It holds the building blocks of life.� The rush was on. The meteorites are invaluable to science but on the open market can also fetch $1,000 a gram, or more for larger, pristine pieces. In Vancouver, British Columbia,

from anything around it. It would be dark and delicate. On Wednesday, near the end of her stroll with Sheldon, Salveson picked up a rock the size of a spool of thread that seemed to match the description. She walked over to a group with metal detectors. “I opened my hand and they all let out a collective gasp,� she said. The geologists, as they turned out to be, wrapped the stone in foil and told Salveson to get it into a bank vault as soon as possible. At 17 grams, it’s the largest of the meteorites found so far. A few minutes before, a firefighter had stopped to search at the park on his way to work and found a 2-gram meteorite in less than 20 minutes. A dealer paid him $2,000 on the spot. Before going to the bank, Salveson made one stop: Rescue Elementary School. She had her children — Linnea, 10, and Tommy, 6 — and their classmates put their hands behind their backs. She pulled back the foil just a little and told them to look at perhaps the oldest thing anyone has ever seen.

Paul Gessler, a part-time meteorite hunter, was readying for a halibut fishing tournament when he read about Ward’s find on a hobbyists Twitter feed. He took his fishing rod back to the house and told his wife he was driving to California. At the NASA Ames Research Center north of San Jose, Beverly Girten, deputy director in charge of the center’s experiments on the International Space Station, announced she was going to Coloma. Her boss reminded her of a conference call about a $40 million budget. Girten said meteorites with organic compounds could prove more important to science. In the Gold Rush town of Rescue (elevation and population both 1,400), Salveson, a wife and mother of two, read a local news article about the meteorites. The field scattered with them, about three miles wide and 10 miles long, included Henningsen Lotus Park, where she walks her dog every morning. She noted what to look for: a rock that seemed out of place — different

Doctoral research uncovers thought process predictions By Samantha Munsey DAILY WILDCAT

Through researching human thought processes, a doctoral candidate has become every test-taker’s best friend by developing a way to predict when a question will be answered incorrectly. Federico Cirett, a doctoral candidate in computer science, began working with technology that can measure brain activity as a way to find consistencies in the mind’s thought processes. After reviewing his data closely, he discovered he was able to tell when a person would answer a math question incorrectly. “I was doing data mining, which is when you are looking for patterns in the data made by the brain, when I noticed this,” Cirett said. “My first reaction was like, ‘Wow, we might have something here.’” Through National Science Foundation grant funds, Cirett began testing students using electroencephalography, also known as EEG, where

a device is placed on the participant’s head that can measure brainwaves up to 250 times per second. This is the same type of technology the military has used to help measure brain activity in soldiers who have been awake for more than 24 hours or have jobs where they can be easily distracted, Cirett said. “This technology has been used to test if a person is attentive, engaged, distracted or drowsy,” Cirett said. “Testing with an EEG is usually long as well.” During the tests, participants were given eight math questions that range from basic mathematics to content from the SATs. Cirett looked at the last 30 seconds of a participant’s brain activity to determine if they would answer a question wrong, and the his observations have an 80 percent success rate. “There are various signals the EEG gave us, but the two we look at are engagement and workload,” Cirett said. “Engagement happens when you are visually taking something in, and workload when there is cognitive activity, or

processing happening in the brain.” Carole Beal, a professor in the School of Information: Science, Technology, and Art, has advised Cirett in his research and said she is happy with the progress he has made in the filed. His research will show people why he deserves to get his doctorate, she said. “I think any doctoral program is a long road,” Beal said. “And he has done really well. You have to be really smart and really determined to want to do this kind of work.”

Cirett said he hopes his study will help educators determine how to better prepare students for tests and lessons in the future. He suggested tutoring as an option for people in the study who were uncomfortable applying the material they had just learned. “When someone was answering a problem, I could tell within the first 30 seconds if a kid was struggling,” Cirett said. “It is not that we are not getting it, but that they might need more time to understand it completely.”

what you want,” Simpson said. “This is your time to explore everything, try different things, find out what works for you and make your faith your own or decide you don’t want faith.” American culture encourages a sense of independence for those between 18 and 29, Seat said. Twenty-eight percent of adults left the religion they were raised in, according to the survey. This includes those who claimed no religious affiliation or those who changed to a different religion or denomination. “Ever since living on my own I have started to have my own thoughts about religion, and such, and I wouldn’t say I affiliate myself with organized religion anymore, just because I personally don’t agree with religion as an organization of people,” said Blake Aaron, a pre-physiology sophomore. This age group tends to try out new belief systems and not

access any new emails, but all emails received over that weekend will be waiting in their inbox on the following Monday, Fastje said. Automatic replies will not be sent out during the migration. Beginning May 4, accounts for department-sponsored visitors will be created within the campus-based UAConnect system. While many features will carry over to the new system, a few will be lost. Shared folders will need to be recreated and cloud-based department email accounts will need to have login rights re-added. The listed owner of that department’s email account will receive an email before the migration period that includes instructions on how to do so. Julie Suess, information technology project manager for UITS, suggested that employees not try to access their email during the migration period to minimize any disruptions. All employees will receive reminders and instructions about the migration before the move takes place.

necessarily claim a specific one, Seat said. It’s a time of exploration where people create their own lives and decide their own values, she said, separate from those of their parents. “The college life doesn’t propound to, you know, getting up at 10 to be in church,” said Hester Oberman, an adjunct professor in religious studies. For most, the exploration and lack of affiliation with religion is just a phase, Oberman said. As Americans begin to have a family or get married, he said, they go

back to a religious affiliation and a tight-knit spiritual community. “Religion becomes more important with birth and with death,” Oberman said. For some, young adulthood encourages a phase of exploration, while others see religion as a cultural connection to their family even when they leave home. Ricky Silver, a veterinary science freshman, is in the Jewish Arizonans on Campus club. He said his ancestral history keeps him connected to Judaism. “I think since the Holocaust everybody has come together and

has kept the (Jewish) tradition alive,” Silver said. Though some believe secularism in America is on the rise, the U.S. is still considered to be highly religious compared to the rest of the world. According to the Pew survey, of the 16.1 percent unaffiliated Americans, 1.6 percent are atheists, 2.4 percent are agnostic, 6.3 percent claimed to be secular unaffiliated and 5.8 percent claimed to be religious but unaffiliated. “There’s definitely never a dull moment in religion in America,” Seat said. “It’s always in flux.”

CSU hunger strike over tuition hike goes too far Lauren Shores Daily Wildcat

T

omorrow 13 students from six of the California State University campuses will start a hunger strike to fight rising tuition rates and administrative luxuries, according to the Los Angeles Times. While these students have their hearts in the right place, a hunger strike for something as petty as a tuition increase is ridiculous. The students should either gain more support among their peers to make a bigger impact, or reevaluate their tactics. Students for Quality Education, an organization at California State University schools, announced on Friday that they will consume only fluids, starting Wednesday, until the administration agrees to freeze tuition, roll back administrative salaries and meet other demands, the Times reported. These students decided on a hunger strike because Chancellor Charles Reed and Board of Trustees Chairman A. Robert Linscheid didn’t adequately respond to their demands — so the students hope fasting will get their attention. “We’ve tried pretty much everything, and they just ignore us,” said Donnie Bessom, a student at California State University, Long Beach, to the Los Angeles Times. “We’ve talked to state legislators, written petitions, mobilized people on campus. The next step for us is in the tradition of nonviolent civil disobedience. They keep raising salaries and have those other luxuries, and we thought the symbolic nature of a hunger strike was appropriate to the crisis.” This plan is inherently flawed. There are more than 400,000 students spread across the 23 California State University campuses, and 13 students going without food for a few days is not going to make an impact. Cal State officials told the Times they don’t even plan to intervene. Moreover, Mike Uhlenkamp, a spokesman for the Cal State Universities, has criticized the students for not fully understanding the issues. For example, a considerable amount of their complaints are about high salaries for the administration, which actually only amount to 0.2 percent of the budget. Administration officials may be paid more than the students like, but 0.2 percent is not worth a hunger strike. These students also complained about tuition, which will rise 9 percent for the 2012-13 academic year. This brings tuition to a whopping $5,970 per year, according to the Times. UA in-state tuition for the 2011-12 academic year was $9,286, and many public state universities across the nation have in-state tuition at well over $10,000, according to College Board. In fact, the University of California schools, the other four-year public university system in California, cost around $13,000 per year for in-state students. Yes, rising tuition is unfortunate, but compared to tuition at other schools, California State University students have no right to complain. The California State University system has lost nearly $1 billion in state funding since 2008, which has led to class cuts, layoffs, denied entry to thousands of students, tuition increases and plans to freeze enrollment in spring 2013, according to the Times. California as a whole is broke and politicians and school officials have been prioritizing costs and fees for years. Students for Quality Education doesn’t seem to realize that picking its battles and prioritizing issues is more important than what they’re actually doing. A hunger strike over 0.2 percent of the budget is overly dramatic and makes them appear like 4-year-old children refusing to eat their dinner because their allowance was cut. Students should stand up for their rights, and Students for Quality Education represents that on some level. Some of its claims about administrative salaries are valid, particularly those concerning pay raises and high spending on university housing for presidents. However, hunger strikers are historically used in desperate social situations, such as the unfair British rule of India or women’s suffrage. This isn’t desperate and it’s not popular enough to make an impact. Nonviolent student protests have been successful in the past, as Students for Quality Education intend, but they have also been campus-wide. Popular support and a strong opposition to the issue is why anti-war college protests during the Vietnam War received so much attention and were so successful. But 13 students spread over hundreds of miles won’t make an impression. These students should look for actual possible solutions to the school system’s problems, rather than pretending to starve to death. — Lauren Shores is a journalism sophomore.

MAILBAG AND ONLINE COMMENTS In response to the April 30 article titled “Recreational marijuana smoking unimportant, should remain illegal”: What a joke of an article you wrote about legalizing marijuana. Marijuana Prohibition is an outrage, and the biggest anti-libertarian law I have ever seen. Why is the government regulating what is put into our bodies? Marijuana users ARE NOT infringing on anyone else’s right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In these harsh economic times, billions of dollars are wasted on penalizing/incarcerating marijuana users for victimless “crimes.” Money could be saved for the American taxpayers by making marijuana legal and taxing the sale of this medicinal plant. Your biased rhetoric against marijuana is totally false. You have no clue what you are talking about when you say that it will lead to nothing but negative impacts. I wish you would re-evaluate and help to end this irrational prohibition.

Cannabinomics by Dr. Christopher Fictner and The Emperor Wears No Clothes by Jack Herer. In these books you will learn many things. In Cannabinomics you will learn how the U.S. government knew that cannabis helped aids patients and went so far to make Drabinol, the first real RX that helped, Bush made it illegal in 1992. You will also learn how in the 70s we knew it helped cancer and glaucoma. I learned that we knew it helped Grand Mal Seizure and any seizure patient avoid their episodes.

POLICE BEAT By Elliot P. Hopper DAILY WILDCAT

Follow the leader

A female student called UAPD to report a man for acting suspicious and “tailgating” students to get into a computer lab in the Gould-Simpson building at 10:30 p.m. on Friday. The woman said she asked the suspicious man if he needed any help and why he needed to go in the lab, and the man “answered aggressively.” When officers arrived at the scene, they saw all of the students had left the lab except for the man. Officers asked the man why he was in the lab if he didn’t have access to it, and he said he used to have access but it got taken away. When the officers asked why, the man refused to answer. Officers told him he was no longer allowed to follow students into the lab and that he was not allowed to enter it under any circumstances. He was referred to the Dean of Students for a Code of Conduct violation. 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.

‘Speaking in Tongues: Wallace Berman and Robert Heinecken, 1961-1976’ This landmark exhibition, curated by Claudia Bohn-Spector and Sam Mellon, brings the work of Berman and Heinecken ‒ two seminal yet under-studied Los Angeles artists ‒ into close conversation for the very first time. Each was interested in appropriating and repurposing images from mass media, which helped usher in the use of photography as a key element of contemporary avant-garde art. Their works are explored within the unique cultural context of 1960s and 1970s Southern California, as it fueled and amplified their highly original creative approaches. The Center for Creative Photography began acquiring the Robert Heinecken Archive in 1981. A detailed guide to the Heinecken Archive can be found on the CCP website. Center for Creative Photography.

Q&A

Former WR coach talks new job, UA facilities By Zack Rosenblatt Daily Wildcat

A tumultuous 4-8 season last year following a five-game losing streak to end the previous year cost former head coach Mike Stoops and most of his staff their jobs. Some of that coaching staff has landed on their feet and secured new jobs, some have not, and one — offensive line coach Robert Anae — remains at Arizona. Former wide receivers coach Dave Nichol was given the same position at East Carolina at the beginning of March following five years on Stoops’ staff, one year at Baylor and five years at Texas Tech. Nichol started at Arizona in 2007 as a graduate assistant on the offensive line and was promoted to receivers coach in 2008. Under his tutelage, Arizona’s receivers contributed to one of the most prolific passing games in the nation. The Daily Wildcat spoke with Nichol about his time at Arizona, not being re-hired by new coach Rich Rodriguez and how his East Carolina job came about, among other things.

Crump signed by Bills Ex-wide receiver finds home in NFL camp despite not being selected in the draft By Zack Rosenblatt Daily Wildcat

Former Arizona wide receiver Gino Crump said before the NFL Draft that he didn’t care if he got drafted or not and would have even been ecstatic to be the very last pick in the draft — known as Mr. Irrelevant. The draft has come and gone, and Crump didn’t hear his name called as the 253rd overall selection — a distinction that went to Northern Illinois quarterback Chandler Harnish. The Buffalo Bills scooped up Crump as an undrafted free agent on Monday, inviting him to their minicamp May 10 through 13. While Crump said he didn’t care about getting drafted, he still believes that NFL teams are underestimating him and his fellow Arizonans. “I don’t think Arizona always gets the respect we deserve when it comes to the draft,” Crump said, citing former UA standouts like Tedy Bruschi, Lance Briggs and Brooks Reed. “I think we consistently bring out great players to the league, going back to the Stoops era and before. “I just don’t think we always get the respect we deserve when it comes to the draft.” In that sense, Crump said he wasn’t surprised that someone with such a prolific career like his record-setting teammate Juron Criner fell farther than many expected. Criner was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the fifth round. Talent-wise, Arizona should be

more highly regarded in terms of the draft. But Crump thinks he knows why they are often overlooked. “We just don’t win a lot of games on a consistent basis,” Crump said. “With the new coaching staff, I think that we have a bright upside with the guys we have left on the team from last year’s time and I think they can make a run.” As for his new Buffalo digs, Crump said he isn’t concerned with the dramatic weather change. “Man, I’m ready to go to Antarctica,” Crump said, laughing. “I’m willing to do whatever it takes. I think I proved that during my time at Arizona and I just want to continue on that train, with hard work and dedicating myself to my craft, and just being a real professional. At this point I’m excited about the opportunity, even though it’s not set in stone. “I think I bring a lot to the table for the Bills.” The 6-foot-2, 210-pound receiver from Washington, D.C., said that he sees a lot of similarities between the Bills and the UA football teams he played on. “I know they started off 5-0 last year,” Crump said. “They’re a team on the up-and-up and they have a great core of guys. That’s what it was like with Arizona, we had some great triumphs, then we experienced some great letdowns as well, but we were a team that just kept trying. “I think those guys are probably on a similar mindset that I’m on so I think it’ll probably be a great fit.”

Former Arizona receiver Gino Crump signed with the Buffalo Bills on Monday.

DW: How Dave Nichol did the East Carolina job former wide come about receivers coach for you? Nichol: One, it was a job (laughs), which is good. You want a job, as opposed to not have[ing] one. The head coach (Ruffin McNeill) and me coached together at Texas Tech years ago when I was an assistant coach and graduate assistant, and he was the defensive coordinator. Several guys on the staff I know from Texas Tech, we’re very familiar. It worked out, so I’m really excited. Were you surprised that Rich Rodriguez didn’t rehire you? I didn’t (expect to be rehired). He was as good as he could be in that kind of situation and I’m not just saying that, but he’s an offensive guy, he’s a really good offensive guy. So I figured he would probably have guys in mind. You kind of know that’s going to happen, but I’m really, really happy for Robert Anae, who I’ve known for a long time. I’m really glad that Robert was able to stay and develop that young O-line. Mike Stoops recently made comments to CBS Sports that a big reason why the UA struggled in recent years was because of a lack of football facilities. What are your thoughts on that? I don’t read a lot of what’s said and what’s been going on. I would be surprised if he said that’s the reason why we struggled, but I think on the field record-wise, it all played a part. I love Tucson, I talk to a bunch of people there, but the reality is we all had to move on and that’s what we’re all doing. There’s no doubt, I recruited in Dallas, and I’m from Dallas, and half the high schools had better stuff than we did at Arizona, but that’s why they’re building that (the North End Zone Project). More than anything I just wish we had the opportunity to move in there but they’re taking the proper steps by building the new facility. What are your thoughts on the North End Zone Project and what that means for the UA? It’s gonna be awesome. I’m gonna be excited one day go back there at some point and see it. I talked to (former UA offensive lineman) Eben Britton and we were talking about that. I’m gonna be proud for guys like him and (former UA receiver and tight end) Mike Thomas,

UA outfielder Bobby Brown has recovered nicely from an early season slump. After starting the season 0-for-14, he now has the team’s second-highest slugging percentage.

Brown coming on strong Senior outfielder is becoming a key part of the UA’s lineup despite a slow start that got him benched By Kyle Johnson Daily Wildcat

The Arizona offense was already rated as the best in the Pac-12 coming into the its last series against East Tennessee State, but things got just plain silly for senior Bobby Brown and company over the weekend. “I just felt really confident up there at the plate,” Brown said. “I just felt great and it worked out for me.” Brown went 9-for-12 on the weekend with nine RBIs, but he was just one of the many Wildcat hitters that turned the pitcher’s paradise at Hi Corbett Field into a batter’s playground. Everyone was taking good at-bats all weekend by staying unselfish and doing their job, according to sophomore Johnny Field, who went 11-for15 at the plate. The Wildcats outscored East

Tennessee State 51-17 and combined for 65 hits with a .503 team batting average on the weekend. This success raised their overall batting average to an impressive .336, placing Arizona within the top three in the nation. The offensive attack was constant, especially in Sunday’s game, in which the UA scored at least one run in every inning but the fourth. Field said that coming into the matchup Arizona knew the Buccaneers had a good offense, so the Wildcats couldn’t take them lightly. “We had to come out and hit the ball around the yard, and that’s what we did for three games,” he said. And the confident hitting this weekend put this team in the Arizona record books. During Friday’s 24-7 dismantling of East Tennessee State, the Wildcats hit six triples on the night, including two

by Brown and junior Alex Mejia. The six triples set an Arizona record — the high was previously five, set against New Mexico in 2000 — and the Wildcats finished with nine triples in the series. And all of this scoring was produced without much power. Hi Corbett Field is a death trap for the deep ball, especially in right field where the wind blows over the fence to hold the ball in the air. But a resurgent Brown didn’t seem to care. Brown crushed a solo shot over that right field fence Saturday, powering it through the wind and over the tall, black fence. The hit was impressive, but the fact that it came off of Brown’s bat would have seemed unbelievable at the start of the season. Brown began the year in a 0-for-14 slump and was just 2-for-21 before

being benched in the second game of a double-header against Auburn. Without regular starts, it becomes even more important to take advantage of every opportunity, Brown said. “And that’s what I did,” he added. Ever since the Auburn series, the redshirt senior has been working his way into form, and this past weekend it all came together. Brown is now hitting .345 on the season, is second on the team in slugging percentage (.569) and fourth in RBIs, with 35 this season. And after Brown’s recent performances, it feels like a lifetime ago that the senior was being benched against Auburn. “I felt like I was putting too much pressure on myself to get hits,” Brown said. “Finally I got that monkey off my back and just kind of relaxed and got the job done.”

Milestone not sinking in for ’Cats By Kyle Johnson Daily Wildcat

When the ball hit the leather of left fielder Joseph Maggi’s glove for the final out Friday night, the Wildcats’ dominant 24-7 victory over East Tennessee State was complete. But the Arizona baseball program wasn’t just celebrating a statement victory — it was cementing a place

in history. The win improved the Wildcats’ record to 27-13 on the season and was the 2,600th win in program history, a record few other schools can claim. “Obviously we have a lot of tradition here, a lot of history,” senior Bobby Brown said. “It’s just great to be an Arizona Wildcat.” It may seem like a random number, but the new win total puts the

Wildcats in elite company, as they are just one of eight teams to reach that milestone, joining fellow Pac12 members USC, Stanford and ASU in the prestigious club. Oddly enough, the pitcher who won the 2,600th game for the Wildcats — junior Kurt Heyer — also won No. 2,500 in his first career start as a Wildcat. Brown, another Wildcat on the roster for both milestones, said he

hopes they continue to add to the mark this season. “Hopefully we just keep at it,” Brown said. “Hopefully we go for 3,000.” Head coach Andy Lopez said he’s always felt honored to work with such an elite program, but the milestone itself wasn’t exactly earth-shattering. “I’m sure when I’m old and I’m

and Robbie (Rob Gronkowski), and a bunch of guys that helped, in my opinion, get that facility going. It’s all good stuff. We had a great time there and I wish we could’ve finished it a little bit better obviously but it’s only gonna help, that’s definitely gonna help coach Rich Rod and his staff. Despite all the team’s struggles last year, the wide receivers were still considered by many to be one of the team’s best positions last year. How did it feel to be the coach of a position that received so much praise? We could’ve done more, we could’ve played better. The first thing I did when I heard the news about coach Stoops was I called him to apologize because, you know, I thought we could have been even better. We had setbacks and injuries at times, but the reality is the schedule we played early, your best players have to play great to be able to compete with those teams so I thought, some of the guys in my room could’ve played better and that’s my job. I wish we could’ve done more. I was proud of the way we recruited there, the receiver position. I know they got a bunch of good young ones. Three, four years ago I remember (former offensive coordinator Sonny) Dykes saying, ‘Look man, you need to go get some receivers,” and I felt like we did that. There’s some guys there that can play, really good kids. That’s the biggest disappointment for me. I just don’t get to coach them anymore, but they’re living on without me and that’s how it goes. What are your thoughts on current UA receiver Dan Buckner? I try to keep in touch a little bit, and obviously I didn’t see much of the practices, but I’d imagine a guy like Dan, I don’t care what offense it is, he knows he needs to play good. He’s got one year left and he wants to continue to play football, so I’d imagine he’s working hard like always. The biggest thing with him was always if he could just continue to mature, the sky’s the limit, which sounds dorky but it’s pretty true.

not coaching it’ll mean something,” Lopez said, “but right now, honestly, it meant that Friday was a win — (now) let’s get Saturday.” Arizona was the second program to reach the milestone in a week — Florida State joined the club on April 21. Arizona may not be the last team to reach the mark this season either, as Clemson is just eight wins away and could reach the mark as early as May 15. But the victory still signified that Arizona has earned its place among the other elite programs in baseball, and with the direction this year’s team is headed, it has the potential to add to the legacy. “If you think of Arizona baseball, you think (of a team) always in the top of the country every year,” Field said. “We’re a top team in the Pac-12 and the milestone is great to accomplish. But we have a lot bigger goals to take

Who do you consider the three best receivers from your time coaching at Arizona? Well you gotta say Juron (Criner). I guess not to make the answer boring since I didn’t really specifically coach Mike Thomas, I mean I did a little bit, but I’ll leave him out. I really liked coaching Terrell Turner. He was a very undervalued player and I throw him in that group of guys that helped what we did on offense with him teaching guys and being super consistent. And David Douglas. Juron and David Douglas were the two guys that I was able to coach the entire four years I was there. Two just great kids. I coached those guys from the time they walked down to the time they left so probably those two and Terrell Turner.

Receivers under Nichol

It hasn’t been hard to figure out who’s playing in center field for the Arizona baseball team ever since 2010. Joey Rickard has trotted out to the position 155 straight times. The iron man started all but one game in center his freshman year and remained there through his junior year, until a bruised knee changed all that. Rickard’s streak ended when he was hurt April 21 against Washington. Rickard has now missed four straight games, but the player who slid over to cover his spot has made sure the team didn’t miss a beat. Johnny Field moved over from left field and up to the leadoff spot in the lineup in Rickard’s absence, and so far his relief appearance has impressed Lopez. In the series against East Tennessee State, Field went 11-for-15 at the plate with two triples, four doubles, seven RBIs and seven

runs without making an error in center. Lopez said he still prefers to have Rickard in center field because of his great speed, but Field still did a great job covering for him this weekend. “I still would like to see (Rickard) in center field just from a defensive standpoint,” Lopez said. “Not that (Field) does a bad job, but (Rickard) is just really a good defensive outfielder.” Field said he didn’t view this as an opportunity to earn any of Rickard’s regular duties, he just was filling in until Rickard is healthy. And while the offense did just fine without one of its offensive leaders against ETSU, it may need more firepower as the Pac-12 leading Oregon Ducks travel to Tucson this weekend. “We want to get (Rickard) healthy and get him back, and I’m really hoping we can get him back for Friday,” Lopez said. “He thinks he’s ready to go but we’re going day-to-day with him.”

Former UA hoops star Hill charged in choking incident

Nichol has coached numerous receivers to solid seasons in his coaching career, here are the most notable ones: Juron Criner, Arizona, 20082011: 209 catches, 2,859 yards, 32 touchdowns

Mcclatchy tribune

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Lakers reserve forward Jordan Hill was charged with a third-degree felony Monday for allegedly choking a woman with whom he was having a “dating relationship,” according to the Harris County district attorney’s office in Texas. Hill faces up to 10 years in jail and will have to return to Houston for a court appearance on an unspecified date. Hill, who was with the Houston Rockets at the time, got into a dispute with the woman on Feb. 29 while they were discussing their future at his apartment in Houston, according to court documents. The woman, Darlene Luna, threw his two cellphones to the floor and was hit in the legs by Hill, who pulled her off a sofa and dragged her toward the cellphones before throwing her against a wall. Hill then put her in a chokehold, which caused her to gasp for

air, according to the complaint. The woman flew back to her residence in Orlando, Fla., and called police in Houston about four weeks later, on March 29. Luna emailed pictures of bruises on her legs and upper body and also copies of plane tickets to and from Houston. She had been in a relationship with Hill for about two years. On his Twitter account Monday morning, Hill posted “Unbelievable!!!!!!” and “Wowwwww,” apparently in response to the breaking news of the alleged dispute. Hill, 24, was acquired by the Lakers on March 15 for Derek Fisher and a first-round pick. He had been slowed by a sprained knee ligament and received almost no playing time until recently. He had 14 points and 15 rebounds in a recent regular-season game against Oklahoma City. He had 10 points and 10 rebounds in the Lakers’ playoff opener Sunday against Denver.

DAILY WILDCAT •

TriCats record highest finish in team history

9

$

By Nicole Dimtsios DAILY WILDCAT

The UA TriCats made it count when it mattered most. The team recorded its highest combined finish, and a freshman member highlighted the team’s accomplishments with his own personal best accomplishment, on April 21 at the USA Triathlon Colligate National Championship in Tuscaloosa, Ala. The men’s team finished second and the women’s team finished 18th. Combined, Arizona placed eighth overall, the highest the TriCats have ever finished. Along with the team’s placement, freshman Ben Kanute registered his fastest time ever with a 1:55:08 finish at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater, good enough for third place overall. His time won him the undergraduate portion of the Olympic distance race — 1,500-m swim, 40k bike and 10k run. “When I saw them out there putting everything in there, it was hard to recognize them,” said head coach Brian Grasky. “You could see in their eyes that they had every single ounce of energy going into it.” Grasky said he wasn’t expecting Kanute’s accomplishment or the team’s overall effort. The TriCats had dealt with injuries and did not have a full squad racing in either of its two previous events, which were held earlier this semester. “I’m still on cloud nine from it,” Grasky said. “I’ve been a coach for 10 years and I’ve never seen such hard work out of a collection of people at this nationals. The amount that they put into it, you could see the pain on their faces.” Grasky said the team more than met expectations, as he expected the TriCats to finish anywhere from third to fifth place after the race. He said Kanute’s accomplishment was a big reason why the team was able to place so high. The two racers that beat Kanute are both graduate students and about five years older than him. Rudy Kahsar, from Colorado, took second place just nine seconds ahead of Kanute. Ryan Bice, from UC Colorado Springs, finished just two seconds behind Kanute for fourth place. “The two athletes that were ahead of me were very talented, and the ones right behind me too,” Kanute said. “It was a good experience and an honor to stand on top of the podium.” Neil Segel, who has been on the TriCats for four years, said Kanute’s presence changed the team’s attitude in training

this season. “I think all the guys and gals on the team felt like we had to live up to Ben’s expectations because he’s a guy that’s coming to UA when he could have gone to a faster school, and he chose to come here and we have to honor his presence,” Segel said. Kanute had won two junior national titles while racing in his hometown in Illinois, and Grasky said it was the freshman’s pedigree that pushed the team to go farther than their expectations this year. “It did push the team. It gave the team excitement to know that he was doing well in support of the team,” Grasky said. “People like to see him there, they like to see his

talent along with the rest of the team. “He wasn’t overshadowed by the rest of team members,” Grasky said. “It really was the whole team, but Ben played an important role.” Kanute, though, said the TriCats exceeded his expectations as much as he helped to push theirs. “Coming into this school, I didn’t expect the Tri-team to be as good as it is right now,” Kanute said. “Everybody surprised me with how hard they work and the talent on the team. To get second to the (Colorado) Tri-team, which has a pool of people that is 10 times our size, it’s a really great accomplishment to do that.”

Q

Why Red Solo Cups?

A. answer for this one, but even we can’t fully explain the cultural You’d think the authors of the Red Cup Q&A would have an

phenomenon that is the Red Solo Cup. Here’s what we do know: while the Solo Cup Co. has been around for over 75 years, their signature red party cups didn’t show up on store shelves until the 1970s. Since then, the plastic cups have become a social icon representing backyard BBQs, beer pong parties – and everything in between.

In our homage to the original Red Cup, we offer you, the students, the Red Cup Tip List. Respect the Cup, but above all, respect yourself and other partygoers. If you drink from the Cup, here are six tips to celebrate by: FORD • TOYOTA • CHEVY• DATSUN • PICK-UPS • VW • DODGE Family Owned & Operated

H O N D A

Need to pick up a course this summer?

1. Know thy Cup – Each one holds 16 oz., aka a pint, which is more than a standard bottle or can of beer. Two red cups worth is closer to three standard drinks than two. Pace your drinking and plan accordingly.

No need to change vacation and travel plans when you take self-paced courses from UA Outreach College:

2. Choose quality over quantity – If you drink, drink something you enjoy and savor it, rather than over-imbibing on the cheap stuff. Your body (and maybe even your wallet) will thank you the morning after. 3. Inform thy neighbor – Get to know your neighbors, let them know if you plan to have a party and be a responsible host. This can help ensure that your first party at your new place isn’t your last. Otherwise, you may be seeing red... red tags, that is.

•Any time •Any place •At your own pace •Up to 9 months to complete course

4. Pong responsibly – Moderate drinking and beer pong don’t tend to mix, but the fact is you always get to decide whether and how much you play (and drink). 5. Choose humor – It’s not only the essential ingredient for any good party; it’s also a great way to respond to pressure to drink.

For more information | 520-621-7721

6. Drink smarter – Start by reading this column every Tuesday in the Daily Wildcat during the school year. Email us at redcup@arizona.edu and we’ll even sign you up for our weekly listserv.
