Lev els of watching T.V with your: Girlfriend

ANDREW CONLOGUE While the single people are out attempting to find companionship this weekend, there’s a good chance those in a steady relationship are staying in, perhaps watching some nice, relaxing TV. Or perhaps not so relaxing. Though at this point it’s a bit hackneyed, at times there is a very real gender gap, and it seems that in this day and age it manifests itself most powerfully when it comes to watching television. For those of a masculine persuasion, if you’re interested in watching TV with that special feminine someone, here’s a guide to surviving it without committing murder.


because we’re entering enemy comforting that the rich and famous territory. still have basic human tendencies. For the masculine psyche, however, confrontation is only interesting if it involves weaponry or some sort of martial arts. Shrill verbal spats, especially among women, are just scary to the masculine mind. These words have probably But your TV is about to take on never been written before, but even darker dimensions than that... in the age of reality TV, “Sex and the City� is a man’s best friend — at least on couple’s TV night. There is, of course, not an ounce of actual content written for men. But look at the silver lining: there’s writing! Though they do focus on If there is a machismo hell, then a particular audience, shows like deep in its icy core the three heads “Sex and the City� are well written of Satan are eternally gnawing and humorous. Like an art purist on “Teen Mom,� “Intervention� viewing paintings of great artists, and “Toddlers and Tiaras.� if you can’t like what it is, at least Reality shows like these are less try and appreciate the artistry, TV and more evidence for the because it’s about to get worse. inevitable mental competency evaluation or court hearing that will take place after the cameras stop rolling. From the male perspective, watching shows about weight loss, addiction and borderline child abuse are just There is a great armada of sad. There is a sense that women “beautiful people� reality shows watch these shows to feel better invading the airwaves, and the “Real about their own lives, but usually Housewives� franchise is its terrible the level of discrepancy is like flagship. Watching shows like these taking horse tranquilizers for is similar to listening to your lady’s insomnia. The only way that a stories about how bitchy that girl at male mind can make sense of her work is, but televised in hour- shows like these is to view them long installments. “Keeping Up with as incredibly graphic, heartthe Kardashians,� “Tia & Tamera,� stoppingly terrifying cautionary and that horde of housewives from tales.

Perhaps the feminine psyche finds it

This article’s companion piece was written for the male perspective, but men with even a little bit of sense realize that women can potentially be just as miserable on couple’s TV night. We’ve already discussed neutral territory, but in the interest of fairness, here’s the same continuum for the female perspective — ranging from the mildly agreeable to the swirling eye of unendurable chaos.

Not so bad: Scripted shows geared toward women

The pulsing center of darkness: Reality shows about sad, sad people

Not so bad: Scripted shows geared toward men

There’s a certain brand of action drama shows that men will generally like better than women. “The Wire,â€? “Deadwood,â€? “Mad Men,â€? “Hell on Wheels,â€? — the list goes on. While your man will be enthusiastically cheering on Omar Little or Don Draper, if you’re the type who prefers “Sex and the City,â€? you may not be leaping out of your chair. But you still won’t be too upset if you can get past the inadvertent chauvinism. At least, you won’t be nearly as upset as when you’re watching‌

Neutral territory: Food Network, Travel Channel and competitive reality Pretty rough: Reality shows This is the demilitarized zone of the shows about beautiful television war of the genders. Though people it may not exactly be a man’s cup of tea, there are plenty of cool things happening on Food Network and Travel Channel to keep a gentleman’s attention. Adam Richman of “Man v. Food� fame and Anthony Bourdain, who’s perhaps the toughest foodie alive, are real men’s men. As far as competitive reality shows, give “Storage Wars� a try. There’s enough direct competition for the masculine side and real-life drama for the feminine side to keep everybody, if not happy, at least content. And now, strap on your parachute,


Pretty rough: Cartoons

Women watched cartoons as little girls, of course, but it seems they are more inclined to relegate that phase of their lives to the past. It’s not the same with men. Whether it’s fondly remembered childhood favorites like “Rocko’s Modern Life� and “Ren and Stimpy� or new classics like “Adventure Time� and “Regular Show,� men of all stripes love their

cartoons. Of course, the more adult the cartoons are the better, and males will be as happy as clams with the likes of “Futuramaâ€? and “The Boondocks.â€? The reality show-watching woman, however, seems to find cartoons too far from realism to enjoy. But be prepared to put up with it if you want to avoid‌

The pulsing center of darkness: Nature shows

Dudes love nature shows. It must take us back to hunting on the African plains those many eons ago. Men can’t get enough of lions fighting hyenas, polar bears fighting walruses or ants fighting termites — or whatever fighting anything. Better yet, throw in some computer generated images, have dinosaurs slaughtering each other and give us some hard science about why they were so awesome, while you’re at it. It doesn’t make much sense as to why women seem to hate nature shows so much. After all, the awful dark truth is that, but for a few millennia of creatively improvising with our thumbs and brains, this is reality in its purest form. But if it’s on you to keep the peace on TV night, ladies, after you make your man watch the teen pregnancy epidemic in motion, let him watch a droll British man explain the science of talons while an owl snatches a mouse out of a snow bank in glorious slow motion. It’s in the interest of fairness, after all.

2016: Obama’s America isn’t for the left or the right RACHEL CABAKOFF Dinesh D’Souza, author of bestseller “The Roots of Obama’s Rage,� has made an impact on society with his new documentary, “2016: Obama’s America.� The film was being screened in select theaters but is now making its way across the country. In collaboration with filmmaker Gerald R. Molen, D’Souza takes viewers on a journey through

Obama’s life and sheds light on some important aspects that may influence the upcoming election. D’Souza talks about his own struggles in adapting to life in America after immigrating from India, as well as how he got involved in politics over the years, then presents Obama’s life from the beginning. “2016: Obama’s America� takes the viewer on a voyage through Obama’s childhood and adulthood, up until the present day. We the triumphs

and hardships which have ultimately shaped the person he has become. The visual effects are creative and attention-grabbing, as different charts and pictures illustrate the changes Obama has made to the economy, healthcare and other key issues during his administration. D’Souza incorporates several personal interviews that give the audience some insight into what Obama’s future may look like. He refers to Obama’s book, “Dreams

From My Father,� to get a better understanding of his life. The message of the film does not necessarily say, “Don’t vote for Obama,� but D’Souza does makes some points that seem a bit negative. Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican, “2016: Obama’s America� is worth checking out this weekend. You may not agree with some of the film’s points, but for the insight it offers, it’s well worth watching.

Tucson’s Ty Fenton brings high-class Italian downtown CECELIA MARSHALL Tucson is full of bizarre historic relics, which can make eating out a fun adventure. At the new downtown restaurant Reilly’s Craft Pizza & Drink, eating at a funeral home is not the experience you might expect. From the outside, a dingy neon sign is a remnant of Reilly’s funeral home. Throughout the 20th century, it was Tucson’s place to bring your dead. Yet after closing in 1990, the building sat vacant for many years. Fast forward to 2007, when a kid with a knack for food and design converted the building into a stylish craft restaurant with the kind of charm Tucson hadn’t seen in years. Barely one month after opening, Reilly’s has already caused a stir among old and young, Tucson natives and university students alike. As Tyler Fenton sat bored in his “Mind, Matter and God” lecture among several hundred students his freshman year, he drafted a basic menu and restaurant concept. His dream was only realized once his father bought the vacant building in 2007. His concept became tangible, but not without a lot of hard work. Fenton has a lot more responsibilities than any 22-year-old he knows. A lot goes into owning a restaurant, he says. For the first couple of weeks since opening, he has worked from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. straight to ensure the success of the restaurant and guests’ experiences. “For me, this is my life’s goal,” Fenton said. “In my family, there is a joke that at a young age, I really liked to eat well.” When his mom’s cooking couldn’t satisfy his highly refined palate, he

learned how to cook his own dishes. In middle school, Fenton began to cultivate his cooking knowledge: buying cookbooks, watching the Food Network and cooking dinner almost every night. It paid off when he finally got his own restaurant job in town. At Reilly’s, Fenton even has a hand in making his own dishes. He can be found in the back kitchen baking his own desserts, such as his house special, tiramisu in a jar, which sold out last weekend.

The menu focuses on artisan craft pizzas made fresh and cooked in a wood-burning stone oven. The “speck and egg” pizza is an interesting option for daring breakfast lovers, but other pizzas topped with truffle oils and roasted crimini mushrooms are certain to delight. Pasta dishes and salads can also be split between friends or couples to easily share the flavors of the menu. For smaller bites, the zucchini chips with lemon aioli sauce are filled with flavor and the lightly breaded quality is far from being fried or greasy. Don’t think Reilly’s is just for a

dinner date, however. Fenton’s gourmet sandwiches are the perfect midafternoon pick-me-up when paired with a fresh dessert, such as the butterscotch budino, to finish off the meal. In the late afternoon, the bar’s colorful bottles take on a stained glass effect, lighting up in a way that must lure in at least as many people as the cocktail menu does. To contribute to the playfulness of the classy establishment, specials and menu items are written in chalk on walls and arches above the bar and over the pizza hearth. Reilly’s provides both modern and classic aesthetics with a dangling chandelier and arched moldings that mimic a Gothic-era cathedral, and red accents in a mostly cool-toned restaurant. Despite the restaurant’s renovations, Fenton has maintained the architecture’s integrity. Fenton pays respect to the building’s history by keeping the name Reilly as well as the neon marquee sign. “The whole idea of Reilly’s is to make you feel like you’re not in downtown Tucson, but a more relaxing environment,” said Fenton. “Our job is to bring people joy through food and service, not just a ‘dive’ for food. But we put a lot of detail in the atmosphere to make it feel comfortable and hip.” What’s next for Reilly’s? By the end of the year, Fenton hopes to open up the back area as a beer garden with indoor and outdoor sections. The menu will be composed of a selection of 40 draft beers, as well as cocktails and small foods. There will even be bocce games. And rumors have already begun spreading about an underground speakeasy-themed lounge and dance club named — what else — “The Morgue.”

HoCo Fest

While they may be new, Young Hunter has a sound so powerful that the band beat out seasoned musicians for the honor of anchoring Tucson’s four-day music festival. ALEX WHELAN Despite the pressure of being one of several local musicians representing Tucson’s music scene this Friday at HoCo Fest, Young Hunter’s Benjamin Blake doesn’t seem too worried about where his band fits into it all. “I guess we don’t heavily identify with any particular side of the music scene here,” Blake says of Young Hunter’s unique sound that falls somewhere between doom, stoner metal, and indie psychedelic. “The great thing I’ve found since coming to Tucson, though, is that the people here are really open to so many different things. Those who are into music are just so easygoing and cooperative.” He is hardly alone in that sentiment. Perhaps the most incredible thing about the appreciation that local musicians like Blake have for Tucson’s music scene is that the venues here are just as invested in fostering the local community as its musicians are. This Friday marks the start of the four-day HoCo music festival at

downtown Tucson’s Club Congress. HoCo fest is only one example of a big-name venue showing its support for bands like Young Hunter. While those unfamiliar with the local scene will still likely recognize headlining bands like The Tallest Man on Earth or Wild Nothing, the festival is giving equal attention to the locals this year, with Tucson musicians taking the stage each of the four days. “The festival is truly local and nationally intermingled,” says Blake, reverently calling Club Congress and its stock in the local scene part of the “next echelon of clubs doing music.” While Young Hunter is surely among the best and most interesting groups of Tucson’s current scene, it’s humbling that a venue as well-known as Club Congress would give them the closing slot of HoCo’s first day. It’s true that for a band as unique as Young Hunter, it can sometimes be difficult to find a consistent audience as its music doesn’t fit the local indie or punk scenes. The genesis of Young Hunter

invokes the idea of isolation. According to Blake, the songs that would go on to grace Young Hunter’s full-length debut Stone Tools were first conceived while Blake was still living in northern California. Despite the genre tags on Young Hunter’s Bandcamp page which range from “nomadic psychedelic stoner rock” to “doom,” Blake explains that the project was originally conceived as a metal band. Though he lacked an electric guitar of his own, Blake was sporadically able to record his metal ideas whenever he could get his hands on an electric guitar, a drumset and a digital recording machine. While many of the songs were first composed this way, Blake is the first to admit that the Young Hunter sound and aesthetic didn’t quite come together until he moved out to Tucson two and a half years ago. “There’s something about the natural and historical aspects of the desert that really [inspire] the way in which the band puts together the sound. There’s an ominous quality to it.”

Indeed, the ominous quality extends past the band’s desert-tinged lyrics and doom guitars into its live sets. Young Hunter is a seven-piece ensemble, equipped with three guitarists and two drummers that provide vocalists Blake and Julia DeConcini with a gigantic sound, at once both haunting and foreboding. Since the release of the groups cassette/online single “Children of a Hungry World” in June 2011, it’s musical style and live presence have yielded only good things for Young Hunter, with the band playing just about every month in addition to a west coast tour this past summer. Yet Blake explains that the band’s uniqueness, which is enjoyed and supported by the Tucson music scene, is more difficult to reconcile in other places. “It was interesting on tour, because every night we got a different response depending on what kind of show we were playing. You know, we kind of thought of ourselves as metal, but indie people really seemed to like us. Then sometimes the metal crowd

responded well.” The lack of harsh genre divisions in Tucson, indicated not only by Hoco Fest’s lineup but also by other events like the Brootal Sun Fest, has, in Blake’s mind, helped distinguish Tucson as an ideal place for a truly thriving music scene. “Compared to most other places I’ve been, Tucson is just a cooperative place,” says Blake. “It’s a great place to be making music. We couldn’t do what we’re doing anywhere else.” It’s this spirit that makes aspects of Tucson culture, such as the HoCo Fest, so exceptional. When you come to Club Congress this weekend, make sure to check the schedule because the festival events take place in both the indoor and outdoor sections of Club Congress. After 9 p.m. the indoor section is open only to those over 21. Take it from Benjamin Blake: “Tucson has such a unique music community. As long as you’re out here, go explore it.”

Getting a bad rap GRANT HULL Rapping ain’t easy. To produce high-quality, memorable hip-hop, it takes a certain level of dedication and perseverance. Hours, days and even years must be sacrificed to build a career as a rapper. Unless, of course, you’re a person with “connections.” Famous athletes, actors and other musicians, have attempted to penetrate the world of hip-hop and make their mark as legitimate rappers. Some have found success in their transitions; others have not fared as well. None of this is to say that celebrities should stop trying to rap — it’s just that the results can be awkward and often downright comical. Here are three people who should have taken a pass on hip-hop:

e mon a R Dee e e D

Dee Dee Ramone, bassist and lead songwriter for legendary punk band the Ramones, made an ill-fated entry into hip-hop in 1989 by releasing the album Standing in the Spotlight under the moniker Dee Dee King. Critics loathed this album so much that some said it was among the worst albums of all time. Prior to releasing Spotlight, Dee Dee had recorded “Funky Man,” an insanely monotonous and almost unbearable tune. However, it has been suggested that the album, and his attempt at rapping in general, was partially in jest, ultimately giving Dee Dee the last laugh. Ramones fans won’t remember this album kindly, but thankfully, Dee Dee returned to making punk albums until his death in 2002.

Jere me R oger s

Being a skateboarder from the East Coast, I was a huge Jereme Rogers fan growing up. For about six or seven years, Rogers was a force in professional skateboarding, racking up a massive amount of coverage in videos, magazines and contest appearances. As Rogers’s behavior started to become more erratic — neck tattoos, tripping on shrooms while naked on a roof, a treble clef face tattoo — he shocked the skateboarding world by retiring in 2009 to focus on a rap career. Like Ramone and Pesci, Rogers’ initial tracks, penned under the name of J. Casanova, were not taken seriously by fans and critics. YouTube videos of his tracks rivaled Rebecca Black for highest dislike-to-like ratio. Unfortunately, Rogers was completely serious about his career choice and insisted he was meant to be a rapper all along. Rogers eventually returned to skateboarding by launching his own company in 2010, to mixed reaction from the skateboarding community. Rogers has actually improved since he started rapping, and many who initially trashed his career change have begun to come around. For what it’s worth, I would rather have seen Rogers on a board these past few years, but if he’s having that much fun rapping then maybe it’s not such a bad choice.

Joe Pes ci

Let’s start by saying that Joe Pesci is gangster. His characters in “Raging Bull”, “Goodfellas” and “Casino” are more gangster than any gangsta rappers, except N.W.A. Shit, he was even kind of badass in the “Home Alone” movies. Pesci would try to take his swagger from the big screen to the studio in his 1998 album Vincent LaGuardia Gambini Sings Just For You, most notably in the single “Wise Guy.” The song makes references to some of Pesci’s more prominent mafia gangster roles and features a sample of Blondie’s “Rapture.” Despite “Wise Guy” being completely absurd, Pesci maintains a solid flow throughout and brings enough material for three full verses. Like Dee Dee Ramone, Pesci’s rapping was not meant to be taken seriously and no follow-up was made to “Wise Guy”. To this date, Joe Pesci is still in possession of a hood pass, so don’t count out a possible return to the studio.


Pillow Talk Kate Newton


on’t let me speak for the group, but I’ve seen one too many freshman couples walking around campus holding hands this week. Maybe you took my column last week as encouragement to go Facebook-official with the first person to compliment your newly bursared workout clothes at the gym, instead of engaging in some carnal trial and error like the rest of us. If so, you misread me, so untangle yourselves from each other’s lanyards and let me derail your delusions of romantic grandeur: relationships are hard work, demand their fair share of personal sacrifice and can hardly manifest in any worthwhile form if you met last week in the Panda Express line. There are plenty of common misconceptions when entering a relationship. First, you won’t get flowers and candy for every holiday or relationship landmark. We all had that friend in high school whose boyfriend went all Nicholas Sparks on Valentine’s Day and left a bouquet of flowers and a goddamn monogrammed message spelled with Skittles on her desk in every period. Meanwhile, you ate the bottom Skittle in the exclamation point of “I LUV U!,” hating your life, and hoped she wouldn’t notice. Not much has changed, as you’ll find an overzealous minority still partakes in this type of behavior in college. Don’t take this as an assurance of normalcy. In the year and a half that I’ve been with my boyfriend, I’ve gotten flowers twice, both times because of my unsubtle hints, which he rightfully began to interpret as threats. Essentially, I used intimidation and scare tactics to secure a plastic vase of roses. Were they beautiful? Yes. Am I proud of it? No. Because I realized how much effort he put in every day — chauffeuring me everywhere before I bought my car, paying for the majority of our dates and getting me a glass of water before bed when I used the infamous “Man, I already took my pants off” excuse. He delivers far more often than just on every societally-mandated excuse for celebration. His daily thoughtfulness is more than enough for me, and it should be for you as well. Appreciate the everyday moments, and don’t think twice about reciprocating — but never refuse the flowers. They might be a necessity once the honeymoon period ends and the fighting begins. You won’t need a catastrophic blowout to make you feel like your relationship is coming apart at the seams, but disagreements of every shape and form are completely normal the more comfortable you get with each other. Not every fight will resolve itself through mutual understanding and the best make-up sex you’ve ever had, though — it actually may be the last thing you want to do if you spent all night shouting obscenities instead of writing that paper you have due at 9 a.m. On the worst of nights, an apology will only seem like a ceasefire, after which it’s easiest to walk away, cool down and go to sleep instead of pulling some Cosmopolitan-derived, obscure sex tip out of your arsenal to get them to “like” you again. Sometimes you just need to cut your losses and let things play out without letting the physical side of your relationship interfere. When beginning a college relationship, it’s also important to be understanding of each other’s schedules and interests, and recognize when you simply can’t be the priority. There’ll be days when your schedules seem to overlap in all the wrong places and the only opportunity you’ll really get to spend any time together is when you’re both in REM sleep. Those days suck, but if you can weather the routine of not being together all the time, it shows you’re both prepared to move forward together, not hold each other back. Be understanding of lastminute plan changes, encourage each other after a long day and make yourself a positive addition to their life instead of a momentary distraction. I sincerely hope you all prove me wrong and make it past the onemonth mark with hardly a blip in the radar. Shit, who am I kidding? Just make it through the long weekend, and then we’ll talk. -Kate Newton is a journalism junior. She can be reached at or on Twitter via @katenewton18.

Alcohol is no longer allowed in the pool area, so if you’re going to continue drinking at the pool, put your drink in a water bottle or some sort of container that’s less obvi ous than a Solo cup or beer can. And although loud music is a sign of a good pary, the good time isn’t worth the fine. Turn down the music a couple of notches, for your own sake. Party smart, and let the good times roll.

Want to drink with the dead? Spend your 3-day weekend at a haunted bar in Tuboc



ABE’S OLD TUMACÁCORI BAR sits just an hour southwest of Tucson, but its creepy vibe and cheap drinks are well worth the drive.

Twenty-four hours after your father dies, you hear a knocking on the front door. Loud and clear, your father’s voice booms from the other side: “Open the door!” Startled, you don’t let him in, but he keeps yelling and eventually the door bursts open. You block the door with your foot so he can’t enter, but he grasps your hand tightly and insists, “Go with me. I need you.” This was Dolores Trujillo’s first of many experiences with the ghost of her father, who apparently hangs around his previous place of business, Abe’s Old Tumacácori Bar. This bar isn’t like your overcrowded Fourth Avenue bars. Tumacácori, named after and located right next to the Mission San José de Tumacácori, is an hour south of the UA campus, along Interstate 19. The bar has a lot of history. I was there to tag along with the Arizona division of Paranormal Investigation Teams. I was there because this bar has a ghost. There’s an old stone fireplace that can produce a silhouette of Abraham Lincoln next to a door that can do the same with Abe Trujillo’s face. There’s a gigantic moose head on the wall, an old jukebox that plays country and every classic rock hit from the 60s to the late 70s, and a collection of shooter bottles lining the bar’s shelves. The place looks like the ideal country bar, with a hand-woven bamboo ceiling. The building, with the exception of the floors and roof, has not changed since its original construction. In 1934, Terso Trujillo, Dolores’s grandfather built and opened the bar. When Terso died, his son Abe was only 12 years old. His mother took over the bar, but she didn’t know much about the business. Abe had been helping his father run the bar since he was 6, so he would explain to his mother how to make drinks and run the business side of the bar. By 1950, when Abe was 21, he was already an expert in the business and the bar was his.

Abe worked the bar until the day he died, for 60 years straight. According to Dolores, who now owns the bar, he still reminds her to dust the counters and lets family members know he’s around by opening doors, walking around the bar and using the bathroom. It’s as if Terso and several other deceased family members wait for their family to be ready to join them in the afterlife. To start the investigation, we took pictures. One shot featured a semi-transparent profile of a short Pima woman. It was pretty good, but not nearly as convincing as the quieter clairvoyant’s picture of a woman in a dress leaning on a fence. It was like something out of a Tim Burton film: sunken eyes scrunched up with a small nose and an abnormally round head with a sewn mouth. I didn’t get anything but lens flare. The team then set up two devices to assess ghost activity while we talked with Dolores. The devices measure electromagnetic activity in the immediate area. Apparently, ghosts have electrical fields. There was a pattern, however. During the interview the devices would have five to ten second seizures whenever Dolores talked about immigrants. That was about the extent of the ghost activity, though. We left with three alleged ghost photos, some fantastically creepy anecdotes and

a clairvoyant claiming to feel hot and “prickly.” Apparently, we were naturals, though I was mostly unsatisfied with the “evidence.” The outspoken clairvoyant sent an email the following day with a recap of her experience. She described something very hot touching her neck during one of the stories and an eerie bathroom break: “I walked through the break in the bar, and through to the restroom. I found I was, for lack of better description, ‘dizzy,’ both going in and out of the restroom.” Until Vicci Trujillo, a member of the family who owns Abe’s as well as Paranormal Investigation Teams, contacted me, I hadn’t really understood why five people would spend a day ghost hunting in a bar. “We are not out to ‘Ghostbust’ per say, we are out to find answers, and if the answers are not true to the best of our knowledge then it is not used,” Trujillo said. “We want to find answers and not just walk around googly-eyed trying to find and see things that anyone can see if they want to.” With three creepy photographs and five hours of light drinking, we may not have found any answers, but we certainly got to know some fascinating people and their entire family history. Travel, in its most useful sense, is about being a part of things. Stop trying to be entertained and go somewhere. The entertained life leads to death by heart disease and mental deterioration. The traveled life leads to the unknown: to novel concepts, places, friends and stories, which will keep you alive for as long as anyone remembers you.

Tucson from behind bars Tucson is really meant to be seen on two wheels. Check out these tips for the budding cyclist in you. HAYDEN JORDE Tucson happens to be one of the best cycling communities in the country. What does this mean for you? You need to get out there and explore this fair city on your bicycle. Seeing the city from your two-wheeled steed is a much more personal experience compared to driving around in a car. When you are on a bike you can really take in the sights, sounds and smells of the city: the aroma of Mexican food and patchouli on Fourth Avenue, the

Biking is a great way to beat traffic and bothersome parking laws.

songs of desert birds near Gates Pass Road, and the unrestricted view of the towering buildings in El Centro. Tucson has so much infrastructure for cyclists that it would be a shame not to use it. Miles of bike lanes stretch into the surrounding foothills in all directions. There are also bike avenues designed to reroute motor vehicle traffic. If a fear of cars is keeping you off the road, there is the Rillito River Path — 12 miles of

well-paved trail that follow alongside the Rillito River, beginning near Craycroft Rd., with a connection at Campbell Avenue and River Road. If you are looking for a group to ride with, there are tons of cycling teams and clubs in Tucson. The UA Cycling Club accepts riders of all skill levels, holds weekly group rides and is affordable to join. If you fancy yourself an allaround athlete, you might want to check out the Arizona TriCats, the university’s triathlon club. Maybe you own a fixed-gear bike and are looking to do some social riding. Tuesday Night Fast Fixed Ride is a fun ride around town with some really hip kids on even hipper fixed-gear bikes. if the whole cycling lifestyle isn’t your scene, biking is a great way to beat traffic and bothersome parking laws. Keep that in mind this weekend when you’re heading down to Fourth Avenue or Club Congress — it’s sometimes even faster biking than driving to these hot spots once you learn the shortcuts. Ride a bike and you can lock it up right in front of the bar. Drive your car, and you may be stuck wandering around an endless maze of dead ends due to construction and one-way streets. Not to mention you can’t get a DUI while riding your bike. During this Labor Day weekend, when it seems like the whole world goes camping or to the lake, you can still have outdoor fun and beat the crowds. Grab your friends and get to know Tucson the way it is meant to be seen — on a bike.

What to

watch JAMES KELLEY This weekend, most of the UA and local Tucson sports teams are on the road, so it’s as good a time as any to catch all the college football action on your TV. In fact, you could watch college football from the first game on Saturday at 6 a.m. all the way until Arizona ends its game with Toledo around 10:30 p.m. There is other stuff to watch, but this is certainly a weekend for college football. Next weekend, the NFL season starts up.

Friday Bear Down Fridays Get psyched for Rich Rodriguez’s debut a day early at the pep rally. At 4 p.m. you can see ESPN Radio’s “Happy Hour” with host Jody Oehler, the public address announcer for Arizona Stadium, at Main Gate Square. Then at 5 p.m. there will be live music, giveaways and other events. At 6 p.m. the pep rally starts, featuring Wilbur and Wilma Wildcat, cheerleaders, the pom squad, the Pride of Arizona Marching Band, twirlers and flag performers, all hosted by men’s basketball head coach Sean Miller. Not too shabby. No. 24 Boise State at No. 13 Michigan State Both teams must replace their quarterbacks, but it promises to be an exciting game. 5 p.m. ESPN Diamondbacks at Dodgers See the Dodgers’ shiny new line-up, featuring the likes of Adrian Gonzalez and Shane Victorino, take on the Diamondbacks, who are fighting for a postseason spot. 7 p.m. Fox Sports Net Arizona Tucson High School at Salpointe Catholic High School The Tucson High School game of the day sees the Badgers travel up the road to face the Salpointe Catholic Lancers in a game within walking distance from campus. Jake Casteel, son of Arizona defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel, plays for Salpointe, as does USA Today preseason All-American junior wide receiver Cameron Denson, who is a top recruiting target of schools like UA, Notre Dame and Oklahoma, according to 7 p.m.

McClatchy Tribune



Notre Dame vs. Navy (Dublin) Interestingly, Navy will be the home team as these two squads continue their longstanding rivalry in Dublin. 6 a.m. CBS Ohio at Penn State Ohio takes on Penn State in the first game in the not-so “Happy Valley” since NCAA sanctions were dropped on the Nittany Lions following the Jerry Sandusky scandal. 9 a.m. ESPN Pima soccer vs. South Mountain Pima Community College hosts a doubleheader, men first followed by women, against South Mountain. It is hot outside, but the price (free) is right. Noon/2:30 p.m. 2202 W. Anklam Rd. Colorado vs. Colorado State (Denver) In the best early afternoon game, the Buffaloes battle the Rams in the Rocky Mountain Showdown. 1 p.m. FX Free tailgating on the Mall The Zona Zoo tailgate will start at 3:30 p.m. and there will be free food at Cherry Ave. and on the Mall. The Coca-Cola Fan Fiesta has relocated from Bear Down Field because of the construction.

No. 8 Michigan vs. No. 2 Alabama (Arlington, Texas) UA head coach Rich Rodriguez’s last team, Michigan, faces Alabama, the team that he turned down an offer to coach in 2006. Oh, and the Wolverines and Crimson Tide are pretty good too. 5 p.m. ABC Arsenal at Liverpool The biggest soccer game of the weekend finds two of the most successful and popular English teams clashing early in the morning, at least in Arizona. 5:30 a.m. Fox Soccer Channel Kentucky at No. 25 Louisville Rivalry games are always fun, especially in the early season when most teams are playing “cupcake” opponents. For example, Oklahoma State, UA’s next opponent, is taking on the worldrenowned Savannah State. 12:30 p.m. ESPN

Arizona using element of surprise to its favor in week one match-up with Toledo

CAMERON MOON The installation of Rich Rodriguez’s spread option offense and 3-3-5 defense has been wellcovered since he was hired in November. Toledo, with a new head coach itself, doesn’t have any game film of Rodriguez with the UA. So when Arizona takes on Toledo on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Arizona Stadium, it should have the element of surprise in its favor. “We have a lot of things to mix it up and keep the defense honest,” senior quarterback Matt Scott said. “They have to defend one area; we’re going to attack another. It’s going to be tough for them and good for us.” The last time Toledo and Arizona played, in 2010, the Wildcats handily defeated the Rockets 41-2. Scott, back-

ing up Nick Foles at the time, even got in on the action as he completed 5 out of 7 passes for 53 yards and a touchdown. Campbell and the Rockets’ players have been preparing for Arizona by studying film of the UA’s 4-8 season in 2011 in order to get familiar with individual players, rather than watching game film from Rodriguez’s tenure at West Virginia or Michigan. “It’s hard,” Campbell said in a phone interview with the Daily Wildcat. “For us, I think it’s more about us and making sure we prepare ourselves for what we can do best. Make sure that when we land in Arizona, when our kids come to play, that we do what we do really well and try to adjust for the game from there.” Rodriguez, upon arriving in Tucson,

made it a point to hire a lot of the people who have coached alongside him during his 10-year college-coaching career, including defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel, who brought with him his 3-3-5 “odd-stack” defensive scheme. “I think one of the things we know is just the type of coaching staff they’ve had,” Campbell said. “They’ve got great coaches who have done a great job everywhere they’ve been. Not only being successful offensively, defensively and special teams but they’ve also done a great job of playing to their players’ abilities.” Rodriguez is all too familiar with what Toledo is capable of. During his first year at Michigan, Toledo upset the Wolverines 13-10 in Ann Arbor, Mich. “They’re a very dangerous team and they’re going to come with a lot of confidence,”

For UA, first game a must-win

Kyle Johnson



Toledo’s QB is a toss-up ZACK ROSENBLATT

Austin Dantin has been named Toledo’s starting quarterback for the last two years. Terrance Owens has lost the starting job to Dantin two years in a row. In those two years, Dantin has thrown for 2,658 yards, 22 touchdowns and four interceptions on 380 passing attempts. As the “backup,” Owens went for 3,266 yards, 31 touchdowns and eight interceptions on 393 pass attempts. In short, statistically Owens has outperformed Dantin the last two seasons. Interestingly enough, Rockets head coach Matt Campbell didn’t consider stats when he announced who would be starting against Arizona on Saturday. He flipped a coin. Toledo coaches flipped a coin, per Toledo Blade, that landed on an “A,” meaning Dantin will be the starter for the third straight year. Based on the way the Rockets’ offense is run, though, if Dantin is No. 1 on the depth chart, Owens is 1A. On paper, Dantin is the starting quarterback, but in reality Owens might even see the field more in the Rockets dualquarterback system.

“I think they’ll run (Owens) more than Dantin,” Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez said at a Monday press conference. “I don’t think it reAUSTIN DANTIN ally matters because they’re both going to play. They don’t really change their offense whether No. 2 (Owens) or No. 4 (Dantin) is in there. “(Owens) is probably a little more dangerous running it and doing some of those things. Dantin is probably a little more dangerous in the pocket.” Dantin’s injury history has allowed Owens to get even more opportunities, and Campbell has been impressed with the way he’s capitalized on that playing opportunity. “Fortunately for Terrance, with Austin getting hurt last year, he got a lot of reps in the last 3-4 weeks of the season and did a really good job,” Campbell said in a phone interview with the Daily Wildcat. “He’s a young man that’s got great ability. He’s got a big arm, he’s a tremendous athlete,” Campbell said. “He’s gotten better every year he’s been here.”

It’s generally expected for a Pac12 school like Arizona to handily defeat a Mid-American Conference opponent like Toledo, who has never beaten a school from the Pac-12. The first game of Rich Rodriguez’s Arizona coaching career puts the Wildcats in a situation that very well may define the entire season. For starters, Rodriguez has never debuted well. Both Michigan and West Virginia lost their openers, getting outscored by a combined 52-20 in the first three quarters. Michigan’s loss came to a midmajor against Utah, which played in the Mountain West Conference in 2008 but now is a member of the Pac-12. Rodriguez’s track record isn’t promising for the UA, and the fact that this Toledo team is dangerous offensively makes this look like a ‘trap game’ that could start the Wildcats’ season down a path of mediocrity or worse. Keep in mind that Utah’s upset of Michigan in the Big House jumpstarted the Utes to a perfect season and a Sugar Bowl victory, and this Even though Campbell exudes confidence in both quarterbacks, and Owens in particular, the dual-quarterback system is often criticized for its lack of continuity between signal callers. Mike Leach, Washington State’s head coach, had a quarterback competition of his own going on between Jeff Tuel and Conner Halliday throughout spring and fall camp. He waited right up until the Cougars’ Thursday night game against BYU to announce Tuel would be his starter. Leach is adamantly opposed to running a multi-quarterback offense. “I don’t think it’s a good idea, never have,” Leach said in Tuesday’s Pac12 coaches conference call. “It’s not the QB as much as you’re asking your team to adjust to two different things,

Rodriguez said. “I’ve probably said this enough times: We are not good enough to play poorly and win any games. We have to play well and play hard.” After eight months of installing schemes and conditioning, the Rich Rodriguez era at Arizona is just one day away from commencing. Fans shouldn’t be surprised at the pace of the offense and the number of plays, but for the Wildcats, offensive surprises are part of what Rodriguez has done to change the perception of Arizona football. “People have counted us out, but that’s cool,” senior receiver Dan Buckner said. “When no one’s looking at you, that’s when you can come up and hit them in the side and knock them. We’re just grinding every day in the shadows.”

Toledo team is not a BCS bowlquality opponent. But Arizona is also not Michigan. If the Wildcats win, then they just did their job and beat the team they were supposed to beat. But if they lose, then all hell breaks loose and the season might spiral out of control. The weaknesses of Arizona — basically its entire defense — play perfectly into the hands of the Rockets, as Toledo was lethal on offense last season. The Rockets averaged 42.3 points per game, placing them eighth in the nation and two spots below Stanford. That doesn’t bode well for an Arizona team that was 110th in average yards allowed and 107th in average points against. Toledo was better than Arizona in 2011, as the Wildcats went just 4-8, which pales in comparison to the Rockets 9-4 record and Military Bowl victory. Fortunately for the Wildcats, things change rapidly in college football and Toledo lost its top running back and wide receiver to the NFL. History doesn’t always repeat itself — or does it? I’m not a history major and David won’t necessarily topple Goliath. At least Vegas doesn’t think so, as Arizona opened as a 6.5-point favorite and the line moved to 11-points now. But that’s exactly why Admiral Ackbar would say, “It’s a trap!” for Arizona. The Wildcats should win, and probably will, but Toledo has more than enough potential to pull off the upset and devastate the Wildcats’ hopes for a bowl.

Series history Arizona leads series 3-0, with wins coming in 2010, 2008 and 1985 by a combined score of 105-28.

Did you know? In his first year as head coach at Michigan in 2008, Rich Rodriguez lost to Toledo 13-10, dropping the Wolverines’ record to 2-4. The Wolverines went on to lose five of their last six games.

two different people …I can’t think — with rare exception — of any teams any good at it.” Toledo might be one of those rare exceptions. With the combination of Owens and Dantin the last two seasons, the Rockets had a 17-9 overall record and two bowl game appearances — one win — to show for their duality. In 2011, Toledo had the eighth-highest scoring offense in the country at 42.3 points per game. “I think one of the great things about both of our quarterbacks is they’re both great competitors,” said Campbell, who was named Toledo’s head coach in December. “They’re both unselfish young men who know how to lead. They fortunately have won some very big football games for us here.”
