Construction for the $25 million project is in full swing and should be completed by August 2013. Posner’s Art Store relocated this summer, after 40 years at the same location, as the landlord sold the property to Campus Acquisitions. Owner Emily Brown said she was initially uneasy about having to relocate, but that University Boulevard might be a better location for their store. “I think we will bring a lot of business to this area,” Brown said. “I think there’ll be a lot more foot traffic because our business is probably 96 percent students.” Zakari Tuttle, assistant manager at Josie’s Yogurt located next to the future housing complex, said he thinks the tower is unnecessary. “It’s another superstructure that we’re not going to use,” Tuttle said. “It’s going to end up sitting half empty.” STEPHANIE CASANOVA
progress as season nears KYLE JOHNSON Arizona Daily Wildcat
“Better late than never” might as well be the motto of Arizona’s North End-Zone expansion. The $72.3 million project, called the Lowell-Stevens Football Facility, still has a year left before its planned completion date of July
2013, but its continued progress represents a new era of football in Tucson. “It will change the look and feel of Arizona football for a very long time,” athletic director Greg Byrne said. The Wildcats are one of the only football programs in the country to not have its own facilities. Rather, the team shares them with the basketball team in McKale Center. “We are probably the only BCSlevel football program to have their football infrastructure … in the basketball arena,” he said. “Most schools moved out about 20 years ago, and we had not

Hart, SB 1070 among top summer stories COMPILED BY KYLE MITTAN Arizona Daily Wildcat
President Hart takes office
After being chosen in February by the Arizona Board of Regents, former Temple University President Ann Weaver Hart took office on July 1, and arrived in Tucson on July 9 with a ceremony in front of the Administration building. Days later, Hart said her first priority was to hire several open administration positions, and that she plans to work closely with student leaders. Hart has signed a three-year, $475,000 contract.
Hart appoints Provost Andrew Comrie
Arizona’s Senate Bill 1070, the Supreme Court left intact the provision allowing law enforcement to check the status of people who they believe are in the country illegally. While Supreme Court justices did say there were some uncertainties about the law, Tiana O’Konek, a lawyer at the UA’s Immigration Law Clinic, suggested the court was interested in seeing how enforcing the law would work before making decisions on whether it violated any civil rights.

“We tried to do as much as we could during the summer. That was our plan,” said Jesse Gutierrez, the city’s construction manager for the streetcar project. “But we always understood that we were going to have to work around the school year.” Once construction on Mountain Avenue at Second Street is completed, construction on Park Avenue between University Boulevard and Second Street will begin. UA Parking and Transportation services and the construction company meet weekly and are still working out intersection closures on Park Avenue from Second Street to University Boulevard. “It’s a huge project that is quite literally, during construction, cutting the campus in half,” Heineking said. While streetcar work is done under Speedway Boulevard at the Warren Avenue underpass, only one lane at a time will be closed on Speedway Boulevard.
All necessary construction will be done underneath one lane at a time. Because Speedway Boulevard has a lot of traffic and cannot be fully closed, the Warren underpass construction will take about eight months. First Street, Second Street and Martin Avenue will be permanently two-way streets once the project is completed. “One-way streets are designed to get through an area as quickly as possible,” Heineking said. “We don’t want people driving through campus as quickly as possible. We want people to be able to get where they need to go safely.” Certain CatTran routes will be off schedule and will be detouring from construction, causing some stops to be missed. A permanent change to the orange route will include a stop at First Street and Vine Avenue rather than at the Education building on Second Street. The purple and green routes will not be making the Steward Observatory stop as they will be detouring around Cherry
Avenue on First Street. All stops on Seventh Street on the purple route have also been eliminated. The teal route will experience serious delays and will not be able to use the stop at the Speech and Hearing Sciences building building. Fourth Avenue stops will be closed for the U.S.A. route as well as the Speech and Hearing Sciences building stop, the stop on Jacobus Avenue at University Boulevard, the stop at Pei-Wei and the stop at the Center for Computing and Information Technology. The NightCat route will run its usual route until Sept. 20. All CatTran route changes will be updated on the PTS website. Gutierrez advises students to avoid construction areas whether they’re walking, biking or driving through campus. “For those who can’t detour around the construction area, be very cautious and careful and vigilant when they come through the area so that they can get through it safely and quickly,” he said.
more transit-friendly lifestyle to residents,” Kasper added. “Level’s location gives students the option to go car-less — something unheard of until now.” The Retreat, a housing community on Park Avenue and 22nd Street is currently under construction. Another housing option for students next fall will be the Junction, a smaller complex on Ninth Street and Third Avenue. Plaza Centro will have two studenthousing buildings in downtown by June 2013 as well. Capstone Development Partners and Jim Campbell, president of Oasis Tucson, have been working together to build a student-housing development called Cadence above 20 thousand square feet of retail east of the Rialto Theatre. An additional three stories of student housing will be built on top of the parking garage at Plaza Centro. “Basically you want the retail to make money. You want the student
housing to be full,” Campbell said. “And we want the city to be able to collect taxes.” The $33 million project will begin this week, Campbell added. Cadence will be open to students in time for the 2013-2014 school year with 456 beds and amenities such as a swimming pool and a theater. Capstone Development Partners and Campbell reached an agreement with the city allowing them to hold 190 parking spaces in the garage for Cadence residents. Cadence signed an affiliation contract with the university allowing the housing complex to use the UA for advertising purposes. While the UA didn’t invest any money into the downtown project, they will add the housing complex to their list of available housing for students, according to Campbell. “We will in essence be treated like we were an on-campus dorm,” Campbell said. “It’s more of a marketing agreement than anything else.”

diminishes their awareness, adding that it’s best to pay attention and recognize any problem areas. UAPD officers also work closely with Residence Life staff to ensure the safety of students living on campus, with an officer assigned to each hall, fraternity and sorority house. Residence Life also conducts safety sections throughout the semester, which are directed by resident assistants and community directors. The safety sections focus on alcohol use, the dangers of email and the Internet, personal safety, like walking around campus, and other things like tailgating into the residence halls — when a stranger following a person into the hall who has accessed it with their CatCard. Being safe also means taking care of your body, Salafsky added, emphasizing that in college, students can’t afford to be sick, and that living on campus makes it a lot easier to catch an illness because of the exposure to a dense population of students, faculty and staff. Campus Health promotes that students should consistently wash their hands and take time to rest their bodies. “You need sleep in order to perform academically and you can only benefit from it,” Salafsky said. “Physical health is just as important as mental health.”

our college years are not the best four years of your life. You’re not going to peak at 21. Sorry to disappoint. (Really, would anyone actually want to go to college if it just meant watching everything slide downhill after graduation?) However, the next four or so years of your life can be really good years, if you go after them. A lot of people come to college with this idea in their heads that it’s going to play out like it does in books and movies. The weather will never change, the coffee shop is never too busy, class is never inconveniently timed, the cute boy or girl at the bar will make eye contact from across the room. Real life doesn’t work like that. For the most part, you will not just luck out. Good things will not just fall into your lap. More likely, it will rain when you least expect it to. You will wait in line for ages to get your coffee. Class will always seem like it’s at a bad time. And you’re going to have to walk up to the bar and talk to that guy or girl. You can’t spend all your time idling at the curb, waiting for life to happen. Sometimes you have to get in the car and drive. There’s a list titled “Some Rules for Students and Teachers,” popularized by American composer John Cage but originally written by artist and educator Sister Corita Kent and later adopted by the art department at Immaculate Heart College, her alma mater. The seventh rule reads: “The only rule is work. If you work it will lead to something. It’s the people who do all of the work all of the time who eventually catch on to things.” You have to do the work. It’s really easy to drift through college. Don’t. As a freshman, I wasn’t quite sure what I would do. And then I joined the Wildcat, and now, here I am, serving as editor-in-chief. Find something you love in college and invest in it. Commit to it. Be present always. There is no better time than now, during your college years, to take control of your life. To pursue the things you want and rid yourself of what you don’t. To challenge your own expectations and convictions. To further your personal growth. To make these next four years better and to better yourself. You can’t expect anyone else to draw you a map and hold your hand. You have resources, of course. You should pull everything you can out of your professors, your fellow students, everyone you meet. And the Arizona Daily Wildcat can also serve as a resource to help you travel that road. After all, you can’t do the work if you’re not informed. But the UA is your community, and this is your job. You have a responsibility to be informed, aware, involved. No one else will do it for you. You have to be kind. Be good. Be humble. Be grateful. Say thank you. Drive forward. Be better than you were four years ago. In four more years, be better than who you are now. Keep moving. — Kristina Bui is the editor-in-chief of the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

rint the news, sound the alarm, and raise hell” has been the Arizona Daily Wildcat’s motto for longer than it’s been called the Wildcat. In one form or another, student press has existed on campus since 1899, when the Sage Green and Silver debuted as a monthly journal. Since then, student media at the UA functioned under several names, as several different types of publications. It became the Arizona Daily Wildcat in 1915, renamed from Arizona Life to “so perfectly express the individuality of our campus and school,” according to an editorial published on Sept. 20, 1915. Media and the Wildcat has evolved in more than 100 years of existence. But regardless of its form — monthly journal, daily newspa-
per, website or mobile app — it’s always stuck to its motto: Print the news. Sound the alarm. Raise hell. Whether it was dealing with a student quarantine because of an outbreak of spinal meningitis, covering World War II’s impact on campus life, fighting attempts by the Associated Students of the University of Arizona to dictate Wildcat editorial policy or battling libel lawsuits, the Wildcat has always maintained its commitment to exercising freedom of speech. We’re the First Amendment in action. We hold the bad guys accountable. We recognize the good guys. We act as a voice for the UA community. But without you, the Wildcat reader, we wouldn’t have anyone to print the news for, no one to hear
the alarm or watch us raise hell. So consider this your space. This is your page, and you, the Wildcat reader, should exercise your voice. Write us letters. Send us guest columns.

FROM THE NEWSROOM
A declaration of independence Bethany Barnes Arizona Daily Wildcat
ometimes the Arizona Daily Wildcat prints stories people don’t like. Occasionally, this prompts people to ask, “How can the university allow this?” It’s pretty simple: The university doesn’t get a say. The Wildcat is an independent studentrun paper. That means that when people fuck up, we’re going to write about it and no one can stop us. It also means we can print the word “fuck” — we just try to stay away from it because swearing isn’t classy. We get some Student Services Fee money, but funding also comes from advertising and donations. We’re on campus, but we pay for our own facilities. We have an adviser, but he doesn’t have editorial control. Sometimes a disgruntled reader will call and want to talk to our adviser about why the Wildcat published something. He usually hands the phone right back to the
editor-in-chief. As managing editor, I will be serving as the Wildcat’s ombudsman, a liaison between the press and readers. This biweekly column is a way for the Wildcat to give context to what we do and why we do it. Student media should belong to the students. Here at the Wildcat, we’re pretty fortunate that’s the case. It allows us to be the watchdog that readers need us to be. The importance of a free student press has been in the news lately since the mass exodus of staff at the University of Georgia’s independent student paper, The Red & Black. There, editors and senior staff walked out after the editor-in-chief received a draft memo written by a member of the Red & Black’s Board of Directors describing changes in editorial control, which students felt reduced their say in newspaper decisions. The memo also said that
the paper should contain more “good” than “bad,” with bad being “content that catches people or organizations doing bad things.” Essentially, the draft memo suggested that content that holds people in power accountable to their actions is “bad” journalism. The students walked out because they felt the paper was no longer theirs. The reason the story of the walk-out took off on social media and is being covered by several news outlets is because student media matters. It was a bold move. I’d like to think that, here at the Wildcat, we’d do the same, because this is a student paper. It’s your paper, and that’s not a small thing. The Wildcat is going to hold people accountable — and readers should do the same to us. Think we aren’t covering something we should? Tell us. Hate how we did something? Tell us. Think the paper’s just too boring? Tell us that too. I promise we can handle it. — Bethany Barnes is the managing editor of the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

Police Beat KYLE MITTAN Arizona Daily Wildcat
12 inches too short
A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded at about 3 p.m. on Aug. 12 to an accident at the west end of Arizona Stadium. According to the report, an Arizona Athletics employee was driving a rented Enterprise box truck containing football equipment, which was being delivered to lockers on the northwest side of the stadium. The employee told the officer that he had entered the stadium without any problems, passing under a sign indicating 10 feet of clearance through a tunnel under the stands. On the way out, the truck passed through a different gate, which only had nine feet of clearance, and the top of the truck made contact with a walkway above the gate. A risk management officer assessed the damage and determined that there was no structural damage. The employee who had driven the truck told officers he had returned the truck to Enterprise, but he did have a photo on his phone of the “obvious” damage to the top of the vehicle. The officer took a photo of the phone displaying the image, then placed the photo into UAPD Property and Evidence. The employee agreed to try to obtain more information on the truck, and called officers two days later with make, model and license plate information. The officer contacted Enterprise and learned the truck had been taken to a repair shop. The Enterprise employee had no information on how much the repairs would cost.
UA vehicle unknowingly towed
A UAPD officer responded to a report of a stolen UA-registered vehicle from the Office of Arid Lands Studies at the intersection of East Sixth Street and Campbell Avenue at about noon on Aug. 13. When the officer arrived on the scene, he performed a records search for the vehicle and searched the immediate area, but found nothing. The officer called dispatch to confirm that the vehicle had been entered into the department’s system as stolen, and found that the vehicle had been towed by Frontier Towing after being reported to the Tucson Police Department as an unsecured vehicle located in a shopping center parking lot on South Sixth Avenue. The report indicated that the vehicle’s ignition had been damaged. The officer informed the employee assigned to the vehicle that it had been recovered, and advised the employee to contact risk management to assess the damage. Victim’s rights information was mailed to risk management. The employee who reported the incident signed an agreement to participate in any judicial proceedings regarding the vehicle.
Drive takes turn for the worst
A UAPD officer conducted a traffic stop at about 10:30 p.m. on Aug. 12 in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven just west of Campbell Avenue on Speedway Boulevard after he noticed a driver make a right-hand turn into the parking lot without using a turn signal. The driver, who was a non-UA affiliated man, said he had used his turn signal, but that he had been having electrical problems with it lately, and that the signal only worked intermittently. The officer asked the driver for identification, and learned upon performing a records check that the man’s license had been suspended in Pima County for failure to appear in court. The man told the officer he was ordered to appear because he had stopped paying for another citation after losing his job. The officer cited and released the driver, and the vehicle was towed and impounded by Tucson Wrecker. The vehicle will remain impounded for 30 days.

Taylor Swift is becoming a grown-ass woman. After her hipster haircut and Schwarzenegger controversy, there’s little left to be said of the pop princess’ most recent transformation. The oncecountry darling is arguably the biggest pop star in the world at the moment — she commands Bieber-esque affection, is a demographic-crossing wunderkind and has mastered the border between pop and country in a fashion that Shania Twain only hinted at. When Taylor cuts her hair, we watch. When she’s gracing talk show stages, we listen. When she tweets pictures of her adorable cat, we follow her. Despite all of the focus on her, Swift has also remained a bit of an enigma, leaving a lot to the imagination in a time when Miley’s crotch shot didn’t. Whether Swift’s mystery is a carefully concocted marketing scheme or the product of a spotlight-raised child doing Hollywood right, we may not know until her legacy has taken on
the aged pop star patina. Regardless, the girl’s in the midst of a blossoming. Last Monday, Swift premiered her first single from her upcoming album, Red, the follow-up to the incredibly popular (and for good
reason) Speak Now. The song, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” is the stuff of Swift’s previous work — high school notebook wordplay and an anthemic chorus that we can expect those same high schoolers to chant out of car
windows on summer nights. But there’s not a damn thing about it that’s country, and that might be a good thing. Yeah, I know: Taylor is writing about failed relationships with what seems to have been half of Hollywood. Take a listen to the song itself though, and we’re seeing the maturation of an artist that’s not attempting to pander to the same group of broken-hearted teens year after year. She’s not laying her bleeding heart on the table, she’s taking a forthright stance against being another romantic victim. Swift, however slow the transition might be, is changing with the same girls (and boys, come on now) that fell in love with her while falling out of love. Admittedly, I’m going to miss the country girl in Swift, and will always pine for that part of her. If she keeps a bit of her roots on Red, then good on her. If she goes the way of Carly Rae Jepsen, then let this be her “Call Me Maybe,” and let it ring gloriously from every sorority pre-game for the next year. And really, if you’re angry at the girl for changing, maybe you should be changing a little bit yourself.
Breaking the mold in Hollywood Fred Durst
GRANT HULL Arizona Daily Wildcat
Although being typecast is generally seen as an unattractive prospect for actors and actresses, it is often inevitable. The fact is, some actors are perfect for certain roles — so much so that seeing them in any other context would just be unfathomable. Could you imagine Jack McBrayer as an alcoholic child molester? Me neither. Being typecast is not just for actors though, as many musicians shape their careers by establishing an image or sound that fans and critics come to expect. A desire to be taken more seriously or to demonstrate versatility has led to some unexpected role choices or career decisions. The following are a few examples of some of Hollywood’s biggest departures:
Press photo Press photo
In 2000, Limp Bizkit was just about the coolest band around. With a heavy sound and profanity-filled, childish and often incoherent lyrics, Limp Bizkit capitalized on the late-90’s obsession of unfortunate rap/metal combinations such as Kid Rock and Insane Clown Posse. Following the decline of Limp Bizkit’s popularity, Durst decided to take off his red New York Yankees hat and give directing films a shot. His most notable effort, 2008’s “The Longshots,” teamed him with the
very gangster, yet still family-friendly Ice Cube, but the film failed to garner positive acclaim among critics or moviegoers. In addition to directing, Durst has also appeared in two episodes of “House M.D.” and has plans to direct and produce a film called “Pawn Shop Chronicles,” featuring Paul Walker. Despite his involvement with film and television, it was confirmed in February 2012 that Limp Bizkit had reunited and signed with Lil Wayne’s Cash Money Records.
I’m sure most of you remember Josh Peck from the successful Nickelodeon sitcom “Drake and Josh,” where he played a nerdy, overweight, high-voiced teenager who was the constant butt of ridicule at the hands of his step-siblings. Earlier roles included other Nickelodeon projects “Snow Day” and “The Amanda Show,” where his characters were on par with the perpetually pathetic yet optimistic protagonist he portrayed in “Drake and Josh.” Peck dabbled in serious acting as early as 2004’s “Mean Creek,” in which he plays a socially awkward bully who is accidentally murdered by his victims as a result of a prank gone wrong. Despite critical acclaim, the film failed to reach a large audience and Peck’s performance was ultimately overlooked. Following the end of “Drake and Josh,” Peck made a serious attempt at a more adult role when he starred alongside Ben Kingsley and Method Man in 2008’s “The Wackness,” an independent film about a jaded high school graduate who spends the summer of 1994 selling marijuana throughout New York City and falling in love with his psychiatrist’s attractive stepdaughter. Peck once again played a socially awkward character, the sexual and drug-related content certainly cemented a change that saw Peck go from a chubby, Oprah-obsessed goofball to a chainsmoking loner with weird 18-year-old facial hair. In November we will see Peck in another serious role, in Dan Bradley’s remake of the 80’s war film “Red Dawn.” Regardless of how Peck executes the role, it is clear that comedy is on his back-burner as he attempts to progress from child star to bonafide adult actor.
Mark & Donnie Wahlberg
Long before gracing several comedies and action flicks as the angry and violent leading man, Mark Wahlberg made a name for himself as Marky Mark, the shirtless, outspoken leader of The Funky Bunch, providing parent-approved raps about the importance of clean living and physical activity. Marky Mark got his foot in the door, thanks to his older brother Donnie, a member of the equally atrocious New Kids on the Block. Like Mark, Donnie followed his career in music with a transition to the big screen, scoring roles in “The Sixth Sense,” “Dreamcatcher”, and three of the “Saw” movies. Although his fame as an actor has never reached the level of his brother, Donnie has successfully moved on from his boy band past and kept himself fairly relevant.

‘Adventure Time,’ cartoons for more than just children
Wisdom. and perks.
JASON KRELL Arizona Daily Wildcat
A lot of people would enjoy a feel-good show about a boy and his dog adventuring in a post-apocalyptic world that’s just shy of being something out of a full-blown acid trip. But would people still watch if the show was a cartoon? Probably not, because cartoons are for kids, right? Well, I say that Cartoon Network’s “Adventure Time” — the show alluded to a few lines ago — is the perfect example of why it’s perfectly fine to enjoy a cartoon when it has plenty for adults to enjoy. It’s the same reason plenty of college students love Disney and Pixar movies, or still enjoy the classic shows of their youth such as “Rugrats,” “Rocko’s Modern Life” and “The Angry Beavers.” The writers know their audience has to be composed of more than just kids and so there’s a whole layer of subtext underneath just for adults. To put it frankly, the subtext almost always involves a healthy portion of “this show is actually really dark,” and that’s a great thing. I mean, think about some of the real-life implications of “Adventure Time.” The main character, Finn, is a 14-year-old boy raised by a family of talking dogs and is the last known — and confirmed — human. He exposes himself to constant danger and spends most of his time protecting a kingdom of living candy from genuinely terrifying horrors. Anyone put into this situation in real life would probably have a massive mental breakdown. But getting to watch Finn live the life he does with such a lighthearted attitude is hilarious. He doesn’t realize that death is just around the corner half the time he’s adventuring. So when he jumps into a monster’s stomach to save a bunch of constantly partying bears from being digested and melted by lava, kids laugh because the whole notion is silly to them, but adults laugh because, holy hell, shit just got real. A cartoon needs more than just mind-breaking implications to be entertaining for adults, though. There have to be serious moments when the characters show real emotion, and “Adventure Time” is packed to the brim with these as well. Just recently, the show has been dealing with Finn’s new love interest, Flame Princess, and how hard it was for him to get over his first love, Princess Bubblegum. He hits the whole spectrum of emotions in one episode about the subject, and wraps

it up in a comedic outer-layer. An even more heart-wrenching example is the hilariously ineffective Ice King. In one episode, viewers find out he was once a simple human antiquarian who happened to stumble across a cursed crown. He puts it on once to make his fiancee laughw, but instead blacks out and experiences horrifying visions. When he comes to, he learns something happened that drove his fiancee away forever. The connection is then made that the Ice King hunts princesses because he’s trying to fill the hole left in his heart by the absence of his princess — his former fiancee. So when a cartoon is demented and hits the heart at the same time, it’s OK to watch. You’ll laugh more while watching it than any terrible Adam Sandler movie, even though the latter uses “real people.” If you’re looking for a place to start, though, “Adventure Time” would be the best investment of your time. — Jason Krell is the copy chief of the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

Campus leaders welcome largest freshman class in UA history amid heavy monsoon rains, flooding STEPHANIE CASANOVA Arizona Daily Wildcat
Almost 6,000 students of the largest freshman class ever to be admitted to the UA gathered in McKale Center on Sunday night for this year’s New Student Convocation. They were welcomed to Tucson and the UA with an unexpected, heavy monsoon storm interrupting the festivities. The storm’s heavy rain, thunder and lightning led to thousands of students running out of McKale Center unable to fully enjoy the free food and celebration after the convocation. The ceremony, which ended with attendees learning chants and cheers from the cheerleading and dance teams for the upcoming football games, was supposed to be followed by a celebration outside the north entrance of the center. Minutes later, the storm broke out, causing students to scatter from the event trying to figure out how to get to their dorms. During the event, President Ann Weaver Hart
welcomed students to the UA, explaining that she too was new to Tucson, like 40 percent of the incoming class. The students also learned that not having decided on a major was common as 23 percent of incoming freshman were undeclared. Wanda Howell, the UA’s chair of faculty and a professor of nutritional sciences, talked to attendees about the importance of getting to know their professors. She told the students the faculty is there to help and that there needs to be a strong relationship between the two. “We want to get you started on the rest of your lives. And that means getting to know each other,” Howell said. “That means going to class.” Howell said the relationship between students and faculty is a partnership that requires work on both sides. “Open office hours means open office hours,” she added.

told students they were the largest freshman class in the UA’s history, a class of 7,400 students. She also shared some fun facts that make this class unique, such as their diversity, with more than 2,000 students representing every state in the U.S.
and 450 students representing 63 different countries. Katy Murray, president of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, also stepped up to the podium and gave the students some advice, having been in their seats three years ago. “You’re about to have the most incredible four years of your life,” Murray said. Greg Byrne, the UA athletic director told attendees the story of John “Button” Salmon who, on his death bed, told coach Pop McKale to tell the team to “Bear Down.” He explained the rich history behind that phrase and asked students to be loud but classy at games. “I think this is great for University of Arizona pride,” said Daniel DeHollander, a graduate student studying higher education who volunteered for the event. “To get new students involved right away — I think that’s what first year students really need.”

Arizona wideouts ready to break out CAMERON MOON Arizona Daily Wildcat
Led by former head coach Mike Stoops, Arizona was consistently among the best passing teams in the nation. With quarterback Nick Foles at the helm, the Wildcats had the third best passing offense in the nation last year. Foles, the UA’s all-time leading passer, was helped out by a variety of weapons at wide receiver in throwing for 4,334 yards in 2011, good for fifth best in the country. Juron Criner is Arizona’s all-time leader in touchdown receptions with 32. He had 11 last season. David Douglas and Gino Crump combined for 1,276 yards and six touchdowns. Now, all three, along with Foles, have graduated to the NFL, and Stoops is gone. The Wildcats have a new coach in Rich Rodriguez who is more famous for his run-first, spread-option offensive system and explosive running quarterbacks than anything else. Still, despite the switch to a more run-oriented system, fifth-year senior quarterback Matt Scott can rely on his deep and athletic collection of wideouts. “Matt’s been around,” senior receiver Dan Buckner said. “This isn’t his first year with the receiving corps. We’ve just been working hard through the summer running the same offensive things. We’re in the film room together, even when we don’t need to be, to make sure we’re on the same page.” Getting on the same page with Buckner, who started every game a season ago, will be crucial to the progression of an Arizona offense that will have as many as six or seven guys who might see playing time at both inside and outside receiver. “If a kid understands football, and I think sometimes an athlete that’s played multiple positions, he can come in with a broader picture with the whole scheme of things,” receivers coach Tony Dews said. “We all coach technique and fundamentals, but it’s fun to coach a guy that has some unique abilities.” Of the seven wideouts that could see significant playing time, Buckner, who caught 42 passes for 606 yards and two scores in 2011, and Terrence Miller are the leaders, a role brought on by the fact that they are the only two seniors in the receiving corps. “Dan can be a really good leader for us,” Dews said. “We all know he has a lot of physical ability, but where I like to see that he’s grown up is he’s maturing and being a leader because we know he’s a vocal guy. Terrence is a good leader in the group. I think the guys listen to him and he’s a big, physical guy that’s a presence.” Buckner and Miller’s size — both stand at 6-foot-4 — give Scott and Arizona’s offense a height advantage over smaller corners and weapons to use in the red zone. Buckner is considered more of a possession receiver rather than a speedster, but he thinks he has the ability to be more than that. “I consider myself a versatile receiver, a quick receiver,” Buckner said. “I think I can run a little bit, shock some people, but we have to make big plays on the outside. There’s going to be one-on-one coverage.” The size of Miller and Buckner on

the outside may be a daunting task for opposing corners, but the inside speed of the versatile part-time quarterback and returner Richard Morrison, who caught 22 passes for 201 yards and two scores last season has caught the eyes of Rodriguez and Dews. “Richard is pretty important,” Rodriguez said. “We want him at wide receiver, all the way. We may try and give him a few reps at quarterback here and there because he’s explosive.” “He played quarterback, so he has some football savvy and smarts,” Dews added. “He gives us someone else who’s athletic.” Morrison tweaked a hamstring in the first days of fall practices, opening up playing time for less-heralded players Garic Wharton, Tyler Slavin and walk-on Johnny Jackson to showcase their talents in the new offense. “It’s a fast offense, so I would fit anywhere,” Slavin said. “They have me at outside right now, but I’m just switching positions, trying to see what fits best. Either way, as a receiver group, we’re going to do the best we can do.” Wharton and Slavin have impressed Dews with their athleticism and toughness in fall practices, which could mean an increase in playing time in an offense designed to feature multiple receiver sets. “If we’re going at the tempo and the pace we’re wanting to, I don’t think one wideout can play 80 snaps and play at the pace and with the toughness and aggressiveness that we want them to,” Dews said.

walk-on last December, is a 5-foot10-inch freshman and adds another weapon to a receiving corps that boasts size, speed, toughness and athleticism, but has captivated coaches’ and players’ attentions. “Johnny’s going to play,” Rodriguez said. “He’s done enough that we certainly think if we can get a scholarship, if we have room for a scholarship, he’s the next in line.” There are questions about a team that only won four games a season
ago, with a new coach, new offensive and defensive systems and a new starting quarterback. But, if anything, Arizona has the talent at wide receiver to be OK. Between Buckner and Miller, Wharton and Slavin, Austin Hill and Jackson, Matt Scott will be just fine. “I know coach Rod wants everyone to make plays,” Miller said. “We’re called playmakers for a reason, so if your number is called, you have to make a play.”
Buckner — 42 receptions, 606 yards, two touchdowns; Morrison — 22 receptions, 201 yards, two TDs; Hill — 21 receptions, 311 yards, two touchdowns; Miller — 11 receptions, 136 yards On the surface, losing the combined production of Juron Criner, David Douglas, Gino Crump and David Roberts might seem like a justifiable cause for concern. While Arizona is certainly a flawed team, the wide receiver position is actually one of the team’s biggest strengths. In terms of depth and how all the pieces fit together, the receivers might be the most talented position group on the entire roster outside of the running backs. Former University of Texas transfer Dan Buckner has protypical size, and if he can put it all together this year and even lead the UA in receiving, he will probably hear his name called at the NFL Draft in April. He and Terrence Miller, both seniors, are 6-foot-4 and big red zone targets that quarterback Matt Scott will surely rely on when Arizona gets inside the 20-yard line. Austin Hill surprised a lot of people as a freshman in 2011, particularly filling in for Criner against Oklahoma State where he hauled eight catches and 128 yards. Richard Morrison and Garic Wharton have blazing speed which, assuming Morrison stays healthy, will complement the possession-type receivers that Miller, Buckner and Tyler Slavin can be. Also, head coach Rich Rodriguez has been talking up walk-on redshirt freshman Johnny Jackson throughout spring and fall camp, and the 5-foot-10 speedster has a good shot of earning a scholarship and getting a few balls thrown his way.

Pac-12 Network set to heighten exposure of Arizona athletics conference network, which is run by ESPN. The league will also launch a digital network Throughout the Pac-12 that will be accessible to fans Conference, especially in via the web, mobile devices, football programs, changes have been rampant.

going to be a major innovation and a new and exciting development in the world of college sports — the first conference to completely own and control its own network.” In the Tucson area, the national and Arizona-specific Pac-12 Networks are available, thus far, for customers of Cox and Comcast. Outside of Tucson, Western Broadband and Orbitel Communications will carry the network. “We’d like to have every distributor out there; and that’s our goal,“ Stevenson said in a conference call. “We’ve had very good conversations with the other distributors in trying to find a business deal that works for them and us.” The network will have a daily show covering the
conference and pre-game and post-game shows from the studio which will feature Glenn Parker, a former defensive lineman at the UA. The Wildcats will appear on the network twice during the upcoming football season, when they play against Oklahoma State at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 8 and in the Sept. 15 contest against South Carolina State at 7:30 p.m. The elevation in exposure gives fans more access to their teams, while also aiding coaches in recruiting by providing a guarantee of national television coverage. “This is a very good contract for the Pac-12 and how it benefits the University of Arizona,” athletic director Greg Byrne said. “We have a stage that we need to try and
take advantage of and highlight what our strengths are.” The network will also spotlight smaller sports like volleyball, whose number of television appearances jumped from 15 to 80 thanks to network coverage. Approximately 350 of a total 850 events televised by the network will be live, including every football and men’s basketball game. In the past, the start times of West Coast games were shown too late in different regions of the country, but Stevenson sees the network as an opportunity to eliminate that and showcase what the conference has to offer at a national level. “You’re not going to see crazy, 9 p.m. starting times,” Stevenson said.

Seth Mejias-Brean talks College World Series, MLB debut Q A
How does the league play compare between the two? It’s a lot different. I think the big change from college ball to the minor leagues is that you’re playing every day. You have to be playing in games every day [versus] in college you have weekend series or five days a week. This is every day and you’re at the field for multiple hours. I think that’s the big thing for me — trying to transition from going to every day from [just] weekends.
KYLE JOHNSON Arizona Daily Wildcat
Seth Mejias-Brean was the starting third baseman on the National Champion Arizona baseball team. He was named a Third Team Louisville Slugger All-American and made the All-Pac 12 team, only to be drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 8th round. It’s been a good summer for him, to say the least. Now, Mejias-Brean plays for the Class A Billings Mustangs in the rookie Pioneer League. Through 35 games he had a .355 batting average, good enough for fourth-best in the league. Even more impressively, Mejias-Brean went on a 22-game hitting streak, the longest streak in the Pioneer League this season, and the Mustangs currently sit in first in their division. The Daily Wildcat caught up with Mejias-Brean to discuss the College World Series and his early success in the minors. DW: Is there any way you could have had a better few months of baseball? Seth Mejias-Brean: Definitely not. Winning the National Championship is probably one of the best things that’s happened in my baseball career. And

Two new UA goalkeepers try to fill void
TIRED OF THE DESERT HEAT? THE DAILY WILDCAT WILL COOL YOU OFF.
Kaufman, Gondosch in line to replace Ashley Jett IMAN HAMDAN Arizona Daily Wildcat
Although the Arizona soccer team struggled last season, winning one out of 19 games, goalkeeper Ashley Jett still had a solid season, all things considered. Last season, Jett was a team leader in the net, but now the Wildcats will have to adjust to life without her. Head coach Lisa Oyen is putting her faith in newcomer Gabby Kaufman, a junior transfer from Texas Tech, and freshman Alison Gondosch to fill the void left by Jett. “We have two really good options,” Oyen said. “Alison is coming in with some experience and then Gabby is coming in with a little more experience from playing in college, but more importantly playing with our team for the spring semester.” In her two years at Texas Tech, Kaufman played in

Byrne said he brought up the project within the first 10 minutes of his recruiting pitch to the new football head coach Rich Rodriguez. And Rodriguez is following suit, as he said the expansion is often one of his first talking points when talking to recruits. “[The expansion shows] that ‘hey, we are serious about our program and we’re reinvesting in football and we’re building for the future,’” Rodriguez said. “And that part has got me as excited as anything.” The next step will be to address the east and west sides of 85-yearold Arizona Stadium and improve the fans’ amenities — specifically the bathrooms, concourse areas and entrances and exits, Byrne said. But he cautioned that, from an expense standpoint, the university

Especially, coming off the season we had last year, which was a huge disappointment for everyone, I would imagine that it would fuel them even more to work harder and make the season different than the outcome we had last year.”
is already spending a little more than $72 million on single part of the stadium. “So to address the rest of [the stadium], it will be very expensive for us in what we need to do,” he added. “But we have to find the resources and the plans to do that because it’s a  year old facility.” The expenses for the LowellStevens Football Facility initially came from donors, including the two families it’s named after, J. David and Edith Lowell and Jeff and Sharon Stevens. Together, they donated a combined $23 million to the project, which added to the approximately $35 million in donations and pledges Arizona received. But the rest of the funding will come through a debt service plan which will target the increased revenue from the added club seating. Some of the money from the new Pac 12 Network could also be used as a fall back.
ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
UA defensive back excited for facility Count junior safety Marquis Flowers as a proponent of the new facility, even if he will only be around for its inaugural season. “I think it’s a huge step,” Flowers said. “It shows this town really cares about football, this school really cares about football. Now it’s on us to win football games. We have all the stuff we need and [we’re] getting stuff we need, which is pulling in recruits. It’s looking good for us right now.” Even though Flowers will only have his senior season to experience the facility, he is still excited to come back and see it after he graduates. And once it’s complete, Flowers is going to take full advantage of the new building. “If it’s that nice, like I know it’s going to be, I’ll be back [after graduation],” Flowers said. “Coach Rich can’t get rid of me that fast.”

Q If a guy has type 1 herpes on his mouth
and goes down on a girl, can she contract herpes on her vagina?
A. Yes. Anytime a herpes sore comes in contact with skin, the virus can be transmitted. Even if sores are not visible on someone who has the herpes virus, there is still a risk of transmission to the other partner(s). There are two types of herpes: HSV-1 and HSV-2. As many as 90% of U.S. adults carry oral herpes (HSV-1), commonly known as cold sores. Why is this percentage so high? A simple kiss on the mouth from an aunt, uncle, or parent when you were younger could have transmitted the virus. HSV-2 is the most common cause for genital herpes. About 16% of the U.S. population has genital herpes. Symptoms of both HSV-1 and HSV-2 are very similar. When there is an outbreak, one or more blisters may appear on the anus, mouth, or genitals. When the blister(s) start to scab, they leave sores that can be very tender. It can take from 2-4 weeks from the time of initial outbreak
for them to heal. Because herpes is a virus, it stays in your system for life, but the outbreaks will usually lessen over time. Prescription medications are available that can treat and help control outbreaks. Remember, just because you donâ€™t see sores present, there is still the risk of transmitting herpes. Lower your risk by knowing you and your partnerâ€™s herpes status and by using barrier methods, such as condoms or latex dams. You can buy 100 condoms for only $14.99 and flavored latex dams for $1 each at the Campus Health Pharmacy. Testing is available for HSV and other sexually transmitted infections at the Campus Health Service laboratory. To make an appointment call (520) 626-9202.
