Funny phobias cause concern By Brenna Goth ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Before game time, Ron Fuchs, front, warehouse manager, and Steve Heck, pyrotechnician at Fireworks Productions of Arizona, prepare to run their pyro boards onto the field for the Wildcats’ team intro at the UA vs. The Citadel game on Saturday at Arizona Stadium. The boards held 60 shots and had enough fireworks for a 15-second display.
Pyrotechnists delight in igniting football fireworks By Michelle A. Monroe ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT There’s something explosive on the field and it isn’t the players. Two pyrotechnists make the booming and bombastic opening sequence for each Arizona home football game. “I always wanted to push the button and make things go boom,” said Steve Heck, a pyrotechnician for Fireworks Productions of Arizona. His father, who worked for the same company for more than 40 years, brought Ron Fuchs, the other pyrotechnician for UA’s
games and warehouse manager, into the fiery world of incendiary devices. “First time I set off fireworks I was 5 and I was helping him (Fuchs’ father) do a high school show,” Fuchs said. Once you hear the fireworks go crack, you’ll never go back. “Once I learned how to shoot ‘em you just, you got hooked,” said Kerry Welty, president of Fireworks Productions of Arizona and one of the alternate UA firework technicians. The company carries a $10 million insurance policy, but the pyrotechnicians say there haven’t
been any accidents at the UA. “There’s been acts of stupidity during setting up but not during the show,” Heck said. “You don’t fear it (the fireworks) but you have to respect it; the day you don’t respect it is the day it’ll bite you.” All the fireworks used at the Arizona games are made for close-proximity ignitions. “When I was there this past weekend, Steve and I, we’re literally 10 feet away from the stuff when we shoot it,” Fuchs said. “This last game the cheerleaders and the flag guys, they were standing in between it when we set them off and they’re still
more going as the guys are coming through it.” Fireworks have welcomed the team onto the field since 2001. “Fireworks are unique to college football and we’re proud to have this new sort of tradition,” said Matt Brown, director of event operations for Arizona Athletics. “I know those guys love doing it and the ZonaZoo goes absolutely berserk.” The pyrotechnicians get excited for football season every year. “We look forward to having the seasons; it’s more work for FIREWORKS, page 3
Going to the beach, passing a piercing parlor or watching a Britney Spears music video causes little distress for most. For sufferers of omphalophobia, or the fear of belly buttons, these incidents could cause serious reactions. A phobia is a severe and illogical fear of an object or situation. About 8.7 percent of American adults have at least one phobia, according to a 2005 study from the National Institute of Mental Health. “To be a phobia it has to be something that doesn’t pose a threat,” said Sarah Burger, graduate student researcher in the Anxiety Research Group and clinical psychology doctoral candidate. “If you’re afraid of something actually dangerous, that’s called rational thinking.” Many people have strong fears or dislikes that may not technically be phobias. “OK, well, I really don’t like it when people rub carpet,” said nutrition freshman Kelli Kostizak. “It makes my stomach knot up.” Undecided freshman Sarah Brody said she knew a person with a “weird” fear. “I had someone who said they’re really afraid of moss,” Brody said. Unlike general, everyday fears, phobias can cause distress through anticipation, by either thinking about a situation or coming into contact with a certain object. “The phobia is kind of where the fear has reinforced itself,” said Michael Strangstalien, mental health clinician for Counseling and Psychological Services. “It doesn’t even need to necessarily happen.” PHOBIAS, page 3
500K SafeRide users in 10 years By Jazmine Woodberry ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Thirty years ago, ASUA Escort Service would help UA students get around. Today, ASUA’s SafeRide is one of the most visible and utilized services on campus. And this semester is extra special because the service will be serving its 500,000th passenger of this decade within the coming weeks. “We’re trying to break the records that were set last year,” said Chris Wozny, SafeRide administrative director. Last year, 76,882 passengers utilized SafeRide with a whopping 936 passengers served during one
night of Spring Fling, the annual student-run carnival. All those passengers mean a lot of late hours for the dedicated staff, which totals 35 employees this year. Although the staff noted that it isn’t hard to find students who want to work at SafeRide, a great deal of their staff graduated at the end of last year and 12 positions had to be filled — and quickly. “This year we decided to post something on Job Link,” he said. “And in an hour it had 100 views, by the next day 300, and by the end of the week it had over 600 views.” SAFERIDE, page 3

Would you use the Tucson Modern Streetcar?
Tomorrow: H: 101 L: 75
on the spot
Yeah, it sounds like a great resource.
Mac fan’s take on Top 40
No, I don’t even use CatTran. I could bike faster than the streetcar.
New question: Have you ever used SafeRide?
civil engineering sophomore
So, random question. But how do you feel about the Top 40 music that is constantly being played on the radio, at social gatherings? Well, I don’t really listen to the radio. I just listen to my iPod because I hate hearing the same song like every two minutes. iPod and CDs. Old school, but the best way to go. So what are the top three artists on your iPod that you are always listening to? All right, well, these are pretty random but it’s Jason Mraz, Bullet for my Valentine and Linkin Park. So what kind of music does that fall under? I mean, Jason Mraz doesn’t really fall under the same category as the other two. But they are kind of like hard rock and Jason Mraz is like sort of pop. I feel like a lot of girls really relate to him. I think so too. If you could pick one song on your iPod to relate your life to, what would it be? Tough question, I know. Well there is this artist named Michael Franti and this song called “Sound of Sunshine” and it’s about how you could be going through a really rough time and sort of just have to push through it. So it is very easy and simple to relate to, especially with school and stress and stuff. So that is the song I am relating my life to, right now. Very, very common for us U of A students. Okay, next random question, if someone could sponsor you like a company or a brand, who would sponsor you and why? For me personally, it would be Starbucks because I am always there and love it but, who would it be for you? I think, probably, Apple because then I would get all their techy stuff and I love all their music stuff and computer stuff. I have a Mac and I love to look for stuff and update it. Ideally, I would want Mac so I could get all that free stuff. And what do you think about the iPad? I think it’s sort of ridiculous. I mean, I would find it way too hard to do all the typing with the touch screen. I mean, I have a touch screen phone and that is hard enough. Yeah, the touch is kind of taking over the planet these days. Yes, kind of like Facebook.

Michelle Obama denies telling French first lady life is ‘hell’ Maybe life in the White House isn’t so bad after all. First lady Michelle Obama’s office and the French Embassy both denied on Thursday that Obama ever told French first lady Carla Bruni that being first lady of the United States is “hell,” as reported in an eye-catching excerpt of a new biography of Bruni. “The first lady never said that,” Obama’s press secretary, Katie
McCormick Lelyveld, said. “Mrs. Bruni-Sarkozy distances herself completely from the content of the book,” French Embassy spokesman Emmanuel Lenain said in a statement. “The words attributed to the first lady of the United States were never said.” Lenain said the embassy did not issue its statement at the request of the French government. He said he did not know where the Obama
quote came from. The U.K. Daily Mail newspaper revealed the quote in a review of “Carla and the Ambitious” in Thursday editions. “Don’t ask! It’s hell. I can’t stand it!” Michelle Obama was said to have told Bruni during a private conversation at the White House during an official visit by France’s president last March. — FoxNews.com

Fears may begin before memory forms
continued from page 1
Burger’s research compares how those with phobias predict they will react upon encountering their phobia with their actual reaction. Burger asked participants to predict their reaction to encountering the object of their phobia in different situations such as reading about it, seeing it in a movie or finding it in their room. “Now we’re actually having them test their predictions,” Burger said. People with arachnophobia are monitored while being approached by a virtual tarantula, a robotic tarantula and a living tarantula. Some reactions to the object of the phobia include panic attacks, increased heart rate and nausea, according to Burger. Strangstalien described a phobia as a “psychological jail” in which those affected will rearrange their lives to avoid all contact. Phobias range from the fear of snakes, ophidiophobia, to the more obscure gnosiophobia, which is the fear of knowledge. “My favorite phobia is ponophobia,” Strangstalien said. “Ponophobia is the fear of hard work.” Strangstalien said it is common to disregard unusual phobias as unreasonable, which can lead to the stigmatization of those who suffer from them. “(People) think some of these phobias are crazy,” Strangstalien said. “To the person who is terrified of having to work, that’s real in their mind.” The most common phobias at the UA are the fear of blood injections and social phobias, according to Strangstalien. “I have both of those,” Brody said. “I hate when I get my blood drawn, and I get shaky when I talk publicly.” Many people suffer from phobias regarding public speaking or social situations. “Usually people will actually get visceral, somatic symptoms,” Strangstalien said. “They’ll get physically sick.” Strangstalien said he does not treat a large number of phobic students at the UA. “These things get noticed in high school or earlier years,” Strangstalien said. “It’s been treated.” For those whose phobias dictate their lives, professional help is available. “It’s not enough to say ‘It’s all in your head,’” Strangstalien said. Scientists still do not know exactly what causes phobias. But Burger said many theories predict phobias stem from people having an association of the object of their phobia with “something that actually is scary.” Many people cannot remember the specific instance that started their phobia. “A lot of people say, ‘I don’t know. I’ve been afraid as long as I can remember,’” Burger said. Some theories suggest people learn these associations as infants before their memories are fully formed. The biological preparedness theory attempts to explain why humans are more likely to be afraid of spiders than string. Phobias may have acted as a natural preservation mechanism in the past. “We’re sort of keyed up to be fearful,” Burger said.
5 unusual phobias: • Caligynephobia — the fear of beautiful women. • Eleutherophobia — the fear of freedom. • Phonophobia — the fear of one’s own voice. • Sophophobia — the fear of learning. • Xanthophobia — the fear of the color yellow.

us and we’ve got you guys when football comes around,” Fuchs said. “I love working the games, the fireworks and, hey, it’s football!” Heck said. Neither of the pyrotechnicians graduated from UA or ASU. “My wife graduated from ASU and I’ve never liked ASU. I’ve never been a fan so it’s always been U of A,” Heck said. “I like the tradition more and the history behind U of A better.” There are many perks to the job than just the chance to blow things up. “The best part of it is we get to shoot off and provide a great start to your guys’ team and get a great feeling for the field,” Fuchs said. “You get the best seats in the house, other than the players,” Heck added. Heck is looking forward to Dec. 1 when some fireworks will be legalized in Arizona and he’ll have a chance to light them for his 9-month-old son. “He’s got to grow up a little bit before he’s lighting things off.”

‘Voting is Poppin’ surpasses goals Arizona Students’ Association registers 125 voters in a day By Cece Marshall Arizona Daily Wildcat Enticed by free popcorn and Otter Pops, students registered to vote Wednesday and Thursday for the upcoming elections. While the Nov. 2nd elections are just around the corner, students throughout the state are making their voices heard. Set up on the UA Mall, the Arizona Students’ Association and UA Votes teamed up on the campaign, making it convenient for both in- and out-of-state students to register to vote. According to Katie Parissenti, a political science major and ASA student intern, students are definitely showing interest. “Our vote affects what happens to our school, our budgets and the way our school is run,” said Parissenti.
SAFERIDE continued from page 1
Fellow intern Alex Kairoff said, “the state of Arizona is ranked 49th per-student in education spending.” According to the U.S. Census Bureau, which includes Washington D.C., only Idaho and Utah rank lower than Arizona in that category. Kairoff also stated “our vote directly affects” the state budget and money that is allotted towards public education. By Wednesday afternoon ASA had registered 125 voters, easily surpassing their goal of 100. ASA hopes to have 3,000 registered voters at the UA and 5,000 in the state by the end of their registration events, including “Blitz Week ” which will take place the week of Sept. 27. Kairoff said ASA is trying to make registering fun and “more out there” for the students. With the different themes each day including “Voting is Poppin’” and “You Otter Vote,” the
Drivers love job despite annoyances
With the drivers out face-to-face with students, and administrators routing calls and keeping things in check, SafeRide is always ticking. “As an administrator you are always on call,” said Kristin Walsh, one of three SafeRide assistant directors. The administrative staff of SafeRide includes Wozny, Operations Director Anna Streight and assistant directors Walsh, Nicole Miller and David Nakolan, all of whom shared stories of being called in at midnight or 1 a.m. to manage a crisis. “We provide a service that serves the student body, and ASUA’s mission is to serve the student body,” Wozny said. “ASUA is like one big family, and without them, we wouldn’t be here.”
Wozny said that despite the things students do to make their blood boil, SafeRide is a great place to work, not only for the community within workers but for their service to the greater UA community. The entire administrative staff said that just as ASUA is a big family, so is SafeRide. “It really is a fun job. We all love it,” Streight said. Someone said “SafeRide for life,” prompting laughter from the entire group — in part because for them it was true. SafeRide employees work hard to both provide their service as well as keep the UA safe. “We not only transport passengers, but we also look out for the safety of our community,” Wozny said.
Advice from SafeRide administrators: • Say the building name, not the address. • Don’t call in for a ride for more than three people. • Don’t use SafeRide as a moving service from dorm to dorm. • Bring only three grocery bags in the car with you (big water packs count as a bag). • Don’t steal rides.

Major: Economics At the Wildcat:
Editor in chief, fall 2010
Why I work here:
“The Daily Wildcat is the greatest atmosphere I could imagine working in as a college student. Not many 20-year-olds are given the kind of opportunities that the Wildcat offers. Nowhere else could I be sitting on the baseline of an NCAA men’s basketball game one day and learning onthe-job leadership skills in the office the next.”
lure of goodies such as popcorn and Otter Pops is one reason students stop by, according to Ricky Jamison, a molecular and cellular biology major. “I thought it would be a good idea, especially regarding the tuition,” he said. Elma Delic, the ASA board chair, described how ASA has been working to make college more affordable to the state’s 130,000 public university students since 1974. In the last nine years, university tuition in the state of Arizona has increased by over 160 percent, according to the ASA website. Whether attracted by treats or by the importance of seeing the state budget allocated to more public education, Arizona students want to be heard. “We (students) actually outnumber the people in Senate,” said Jamison. “We have way more say than one person.”

The senoritis chronicles Remy Albillar Arizona Daily Wildcat
ime until graduation: 7 months, 4 weeks, 1 day. Just short of a month into my senior year, I’ve “got the black lung, pop.” Proverbially speaking, anyway. Current estimates put my “motivation to go to class” levels at 45 percent, while my “enthusiasm to graduate” levels have bottomed out at a mostly neutral 24 percent. It probably wouldn’t have even registered for me if a professor in an upper division class hadn’t specifically warned us about “avoiding senioritis” and “not just doing the bare minimum.” I find it extremely curious that the academic infrastructure, perhaps in fear of its own ego, attempts to dictate a “correct” senior year experience. They advise us not to cram and not to skim. They ask us to fulfill our holy obligations to the avaricious god Homework on a nightly basis with the scrutiny and abstinence of monks. Gross. Besides, I’m more than willing to defend my senioritis, and I encourage you to do the same. Here’s some help. 1. Relax, perfectionist tendencies are unhealthy: Consistent, organized and meticulous behavior will end up making you hate yourself. According to an August article from Psychology Today, “Perfectionists may veer wildly from arrogance to self-hatred and back,” and “Not all perfectionists do well in the world. Sometimes they’re slow workers, procrastinating and second-guessing themselves.” In short, embrace the Type-B personality within you. No one gets to tell you what makes you happy but you. 2. Stop reading, start skimming: The academic lifestyle isn’t going to be all that helpful once we get out of here. Management strategies like “Six Sigma” or “Lean” (developed by Motorola and Toyota respectively), the kind of work philosophies we are likely to encounter in the workforce, encourage reductions of waste and variables in production. You can get a head start on the rest of the pack by applying those principals to your schoolwork. If you figure out how to get a good grade on a paper by reading 30 select pages of Moby Dick instead of the whole thing, don’t feel ashamed. Feel proud. You just did some adult work. 3. Your syllabus told you to do it: The total work you actually need to do to get a good grade in the class is usually listed, often with helpful calculations, on that piece of paper they hand out on the first day of class. Why do more than you need to? After all, a 100 percent looks identical on your transcript to a 90 percent, and that’s 10 percent of time you could have spent doing something fun. 4. This is all practice for making other important lifestyle choices: I sincerely recommend you take some time to make a firm account of what you want out of your senior year. Write it all down, and you’ll see how many of the expectations from your professors, your parents and President Barack Obama become periphery sources of stress you can start ignoring a little more. You’re an adult, right? So start acting like an autonomous body and do whatever you want, as long as you’re successful at it. Just a friendly suggestion of perspective; put away your textbook and find some way to relax. Did you know they still play Jeopardy every day at 4:30 p.m.? KGUN9 is on your side, finally. — Remy Albillar is a senior majoring in English and creative writing. He can be reached at email@example.com.

MAILBAG Hope in the sky counters ‘doom’ on the ground
The stance the “Doom in the sky” commentary (Sept. 15) takes on border regulation seems to promote border safety by looking away from the daily shipments of methamphetamines, cocaine, heroin and other dangerous drugs. After all, now that border violence rates have decreased “30 percent since 1990,” we can now stop worrying about anything coming across our borders that may harm our citizens anytime soon and downsize all border enforcement agencies, right? Wrong. According to OSAC, in 2008 Nogales suffered 176 murders. That is 176 murders for approximately 21,000 people. Compare that number to that of Phoenix, a city known as a kidnapping capital: 241 murders per 1.4 million residents. Does anybody else find it alarming that these figures are after a 30 percent decline that the commentary states? So let’s tie this into the argument that we are militarizing our borders by increasing the size of our surveillance drones on the border to six. These predators are unarmed except for very expensive cameras that can detect heat signatures of drug runners from miles away, not unlike every major metropolitan city’s police department’s helicopters. Comparing surveillance drones to armed ones used in Afghanistan is like comparing an Apache Longbow that can carry up to 16 hellfire missiles to a police helicopter armed with a spotlight;
it just doesn’t add up. Historically, civilians and law enforcement have continually adopted tools from the military; this is not militarization, this is evolution. As for the predators being an ill-suited tool for the war in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the commentary couldn’t be more wrong. The loss of innocent lives is a terrible reality of war, but keep in mind that for decades the amount of collateral damage incurred in battle has been declining, thanks to smart technology such as predator drones and hellfire missiles. Thanks to this technology, we see no more atrocities like we saw in World War II such as the fire-bombings of Dresden and Tokyo. If we did not have this technology, civilian casualties could be ten times the 600 lost in recent times. Thomas Jefferson once said, “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.” Whether we are talking about our borders or our enemies over seas, vigilance needs to be applied. Just because things are getting better, it does not mean we should let up. Drones are a useful tool in both the war on terror abroad and the war on drugs in our homes.

Some work out for reasons other than weight loss
I am writing this to inform the Daily Wildcat of how dissatisfied I have been with the column entitled “Letters from Mal.” The foundation
of this column seems to be centered on overanalyzing situations and unnecessarily criticizing persons with whom the writer isn’t even acquainted. Particularly, I am staggered by the blatant ignorance demonstrated by Thursday’s article about the skinny girl at the Rec. The barefaced over-analysis of the situation is appalling to me. Losing weight is not the only reason to go to the gym; some people merely want to get in shape. Please keep in mind that there is a huge difference between being thin and being in shape. For example, I am a size two and I couldn’t run an eighth of a mile without keeling over from cramps. I am out of shape. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being a size two and working out to maintain muscle tone and endurance. Mallory even admits that the girl is on the machine much longer than she is herself. Is it so hard to believe that there are other approaches to exercise besides those that burn the most calories? My point is this: All gym-goers do not have a universal goal of losing weight, and it is ignorant to think so. More importantly, the column in general focuses too much on the affairs of others. It is so much easier to focus on the good experiences in your life than to brood over the negligibly irksome actions and lifestyles of those around you. Jessica Cleveland veterinary science senior
AZ leaders: Stop blaming the federal government for your missteps Kristina Bui Arizona Daily Wildcat
t appears Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne is continuing a time-honored tradition: Avoid all hard questions by demonizing the federal government. In this particular round of point-the-finger, Horne is dodging questions about the Justice and Education departments’ investigations into Arizona’s education system. The Arizona Republic reported that the complaints allege that “many thousands” of children have been incorrectly reclassified as proficient in English and that students “are not being served because they are not being identified” as a result of flaws in the state’s home-language survey. The state is also under investigation for supposed discrimination against nonnative English-speaking teachers. The home-language survey, which was originally comprised of three questions, now consists of one: “What is the primary language of the student?” Since changes to the survey and proficiency tests were made, the state’s English Language Learners program has seen a drop of more than 30,000 students from the 2008-2009 school year to the next, according to KGUN9 reporter Tammy Vo. Horne did not respond to the complaints by justifying the changes to the home-
language survey or defending the English proficiency tests. Instead, he said, “It may be that the Senate Bill 1070 issue is causing some sort of campaign, I don’t know, by the federal government against Arizona.” In response to Vo’s questions, Horne called the investigations “harassment” and said, “It’s an example of the irrational things the federal government is doing now because of Senate Bill 1070. The Obama administration is going after Arizona in every way they can.” Vo’s question was, “So, do you think the federal investigation is wrong?” To recap, Horne responded that the federal government is irrational for investigating discrimination and possible violations of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. But somehow, Horne is not irrational for immediately painting the state as a defenseless victim of federal bullying rather than just responding to the question? The knee-jerk reaction is to ignore the point of the investigations and claim the state is being picked on for no reason: We, the people, are being stomped all over by the federal government. I, Tom Horne, am fighting it. He really did say, “This is why I’m running for attorney general, because we need someone to fight against these things.”
The reasonable answer, the kind that people should be able to expect from their officials, would have been to actually explain why the federal investigations are unnecessary. Horne made references to S.B. 1070 and his campaign for attorney general. There was never an admission of responsibility for the proficiency tests (because the state buys them from a contractor, Horne said). There was also no precise reasoning for the changes made to the home-language survey. If it is true that the complaints have no standing, then they could be easily refuted by data that is actually relevant to the ELL program. Horne would rather distract people, make them angry by telling them the federal government is trampling on their liberties. Play up a fear of “big government” by telling people that the federal government is abusing its power because it just doesn’t like this state. Follow the formula and you don’t have to be accountable. Everything that is happening is the fault of the federal government — that bully. The formula works, because you’re just taking it. Fearing that the reach of federal government has become too broad is valid. Blaming the federal government’s reach for every single issue is not. Know the difference. Providing real answers is hard. But it should be a lot harder to accept nonsensical ones. — Kristina Bui is a sophomore majoring in journalism and political science. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

POLICEBEAT By Lucy Valencia ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
Pay your tickets
A University of Arizona Police Department officer stopped a car speeding down Campbell Avenue, near campus on Tuesday. After running a driver ’s license check on the registered owner of the car, results came back that the owner ’s license was suspended. The man stated that he was aware that he hadn’t yet paid for a previous traffic ticket. He said that he was on the way to the department of corrections where he works in the kitchen as a contracted worker. The vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

Cycle swiped during summer
A mountain bike was stolen from one of the sorority houses on campus, without any witnesses or suspect information that might lead to getting it back. A woman reported that she had left her bike at the bike racks at her sorority for the summer and that she had secured it with a cable lock. She stated that it might have been stolen sometime between last May and Aug. 15, which is the day she returned to campus and found her bicycle missing. The woman was unable to provide a serial number for the bike. It was not registered with Parking and Transportation Services. UAPD officers told her a victim’s rights form would be mailed to her.
Don’t have a car? Call the cops
A UAPD officer was dispatched to Highland Market in reference to a man who had burned his leg and needed to be transported to University Medical Center on Monday. When the officer arrived at the scene, he met with the man who had been burnt. The man stated that he needed a ride to UMC because he didn’t have a way to get there and his leg was hurting him badly. The officer drove him to the hospital.
Following the crowd isn’t an excuse
While working for a UA-sanctioned party on Sunday, a UAPD officer observed a woman struggling to remain upright and having difficulty maintaining her balance as she swayed in all directions. The officer first saw the woman earlier in the evening when she entered the party in a good and stable condition. After leaving for a short time, the woman attempted to reenter the party, but the officer stopped her due to her instability. She identified herself to the officer, who noticed she had red, watery eyes and an odor of alcohol coming from her breath. The woman said, “OK, so I had something to drink at this party. Do you know how many other drunk, underage people are inside there?” She also said, “I am 20 years old and you cannot do this to me, I have worked too hard to get where I am.” The officer informed her that due to her age, statement and signs and symptoms she exhibited, she was under arrest for minor in possession. The officer issued her a citation for that charge.

GAME DAY In a game that pits two of the nation’s top-ranked defenses against each other, no players will have more of an impact on the outcome of the game than Arizona quarterback Nick Foles, left, and Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi, right. Stanzi is the established veteran while Foles, a junior, is slowly making a name for himself.
Arizona Stadium – Saturday, 7:30 p.m. on ESPN
No. 24 Arizona vs. No. 9 Iowa After winning their first two games of the season in dominating fashion, the Wildcats are set to take the field against its toughest challenge to date — the Iowa Hawkeyes. Arizona is seeking revenge from last year’s 27-17 loss and hunting for national recognition. By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT If Arizona was looking to make a splash on the national scene, it has to look no further than this Saturday’s matchup with Iowa. “This is the reason you play college football,” said receiver David Douglas . “Big games like this, national spotlight on ESPN, it’s exciting and it can do a lot for our program and give us a lot of momentum going into conference play.” The Hawkeyes hail from the Big Ten Conference and bring a downhill running game and a strong defensive line to Tucson in their final non-conference game of the season. For the second year in a row, the Wildcats and Hawkeyes will meet in a battle of unbeatens in the third week of the season. “I can’t even explain that,” said receiver Juron Criner about what it would mean if the Wildcats defeated No. 9 Iowa. “It would definitely set the tempo for the rest of the season and people will think twice
when they hear the name Arizona.” Iowa brings a heavyweight matchup to the desert in possibly the biggest test of the year for No. 24 Wildcats. Hosting a game between ranked opponents is something Arizona has not done since 1998. Arizona’s high-powered offense is set up against the powerful defensive line of the Hawkeyes, anchored by senior defensive end Adrian Clayborn , who has both the speed and the size to get to the quarterback quickly. “Big, physical, that’s what I can summarize their (defensive line) as,” said Arizona defensive end Ricky Elmore . “Two hundred and ninety-pound defensive ends — that’s how big our tackles are.” The Wildcats’ offense has put up 93 points in two games this season, but Iowa’s defense will be a much bigger test than anything it’s faced so far this season. Arizona will have to counter Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi and its passing attack with its veteran defensive line of its own. Led by Elmore and fellow end Brooks Reed , Arizona’s defense has yet to al-
low a touchdown this season. They’re ranked No. 3 in total defense among FBS schools. Iowa’s defense, ranked at No. 9, isn’t far off the mark, though. The Hawkeyes have only allowed opponents into the end zone twice. Quarterback Nick Foles’ journey to the starting job began in Iowa during Arizona’s 27-14 loss nearly a year ago to the day. The then-sophomore entered the game in the fourth quarter, but was unable to lead a comeback in Iowa City. Arizona will have the home advantage this year and that has proven to be a huge help in recent years, as the Wildcats have won 13 of their last 16 home games. The two ranked teams will decide a tiebreaker between the all-time series, which is tied at 6-6. “We’ve been climbing the ladder for a long time. I think everyone knows what’s laid before us and we’ve been there a few times,” Elmore said. “I think everyone knows what we have to do to get there and this is another opportunity.”

How each team will win: Arizona
The Daily Iowan
Arizona football is on the cusp of national relevancy, and a victory over Iowa is the first step into the upper echelon of respect. While the rankings, stats and analysts all favor Iowa, Arizona is finally poised to make the jump from a team on the outskirts to the national spotlight. This is the biggest nonconference game played at Arizona Stadium in the last 20 years, and the ZonaZoo knows the implications. The Hawkeyes will have to deal with a “Red Out” from the sold out crowd of almost 60,000, as well as a 7:30 p.m. start — 9:30 p.m. Iowa time. But aside from the psychological factors, Arizona is prepared on the gridiron. The Hawkeyes are big, strong and experienced, but the Wildcats are fast and electric, and have a more confident and improved Nick Foles under center. Foles, who has an 83.3 completion percentage through two games, needs to find time to throw, as Iowa has arguably the best defensive line in the country. But Arizona’s offensive line led by senior center and captain Colin Baxter has been a strong point for the past two seasons. Behind that O-line the Wildcats have one of the best offensive attacks in the Pacific 10 Conference, most of which the Hawkeyes didn’t see when they faced off in 2009. Juron Criner has developed into one of the top wideouts in the country and his combination of speed and power with Nic Grigsby — who has five touchdowns already — and Keola Antolin together could test projected top-5 draft pick Adrian Clayborn and the Iowa front four. Foles and company need to
Prepare yourselves, Arizona fans — your team isn’t playing Toledo or The Citadel anymore.
spread the ball around and keep the pace up, which should be no problem for this offense. Defensively
the Wildcats have exceeded all expectations, and have yet to allow a touchdown this season. Iowa presents a powerful, grind-it-out offense with Adam Robinson — 265 yards and four touchdowns through two games — in the backfield. He offers a nice combination of power and speed , but Arizona has proved to be one of the fastest defenses in the Pac-10. The defensive line of Ricky Elmore, Justin Washington, Lolomana Mikaele and Brooks Reed, coupled with linebackers Jake Fischer, Paul Vassallo and Derek Earls make up a solid front seven fit to stop the run. They are untested, however, and they need to keep the pace of the game up rather than allow Ricky Stanzi and company to grind it out. But as long as Arizona keys in on the run, and safeties Joe Perkins and Anthony Wilcox don’t fall asleep, Iowa isn’t going to torch the Wildcats’ defense. Not many analysts have Arizona in this one, but the stakes are high and the Wildcats are hungry for national respect. ZonaZoo will be rocking, and Arizona has Iowa on upset alert.
Kirk Ferentz has possibly his best Iowa team in his 12 years as head coach. It’s a group that will dominate the Wildcats both offensively and defensively Saturday. Arizona has looked strong defensively through their two previous games, but the squad has yet to go up against an offensive group of Iowa’s caliber. Ricky Stanzi is back under center for the Hawkeyes and primed to limit the mistakes he made last season. The Iowa signal caller has been successful so far, tossing three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Iowa has the ability to beat opponents, both through the air and on the ground. Wide receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos didn’t play against Arizona in 2009, but the Wildcats will know all about “DJK” after Saturday. He and fellow receiver Marvin McNutt have proven themselves as playmakers in the receiving corps, while Adam Robinson and Jewel Hampton provide major threats in the backfield.
Although Iowa has outscored its first two opponents 72-14, the key to a Hawkeye victory Saturday rests on the defensive side of the football. Defense has been the Hawkeyes’ biggest strength during Kirk Ferentz’s tenure in Iowa City, and this year is no exception. Led by defensive end Adrian Clayborn, the Iowa defense is one of the best in the nation, allowing only 144.5 passing yards and 71.5 rushing yards per game. While Clayborn is rated No. 5 on Mel Kiper’s Big Board, he certainly doesn’t dominate opposing offenses alone. Iowa returns a veteran front four that accumulated a combined 52 tackles for loss last season, and safeties Tyler Sash and Brett Greenwood cover the gaps in the secondary as well as anyone in the country, shutting down even the most dynamic wide receivers. With defensive coordinator Norm Parker unable to make the trip to Tucson due to health reasons, the Iowa players will have a little extra fire to give the Wildcats’ offense “Six Seconds of Hell.” Those who think Arizona will win Saturday night will point to the numerous offensive weapons, including Nick Foles, Juron Criner, and Nic Grigsby. All the Wildcats have proven is that they can win games against horrible football teams. Arizona has yet to face a BCSconference opponent this season. The last time they did, the Wildcats lost 33-0 to Nebraska in the 2009 Holiday Bowl. Saturday’s game won’t be that big of a blowout, but it’s going to take more than a “Red Out” at Arizona Stadium to scare the No. 9 Hawkeyes.
Game Breakdown: Arizona
Arizona keys to the game
Keep the pace up This game is a contrast of two completely different styles, and if the Hawkeyes dictate the pace, Arizona is in trouble. “If we sit there and let them get, eight-, nine-, 10-minute drives; 12-, 15play drives, that’s really going to be really hard on us,” said defensive end Ricky Elmore. “I think it’s really up to the defense to really step up and really recognize what we need to do and get our offense the ball.” The Wildcats want, and need, to play fast in order to win Saturday night. Iowa lulled them to sleep in 2009 and Arizona simply ran out of time. But if the defense can force a few quick three-and-outs and get the offense back on the field, Arizona’s offense has a chance to turn this contest into a shootout. Establish the running game No matter how many times Stoops says that Arizona is aiming to be a balanced football team in 2010, there’s no hiding that the Wildcats are a pass-first squad. But Arizona truly needs a balanced attack against the Hawkeyes. Iowa isn’t a blitzing team, and uses its NFL-caliber front four to get pressure. Arizona needs to take advantage of the fact that there are less players in the box and move the football. The Wildcats will struggle if Iowa makes them onedimensional and could be facing a ton of three-and-outs if they can’t move the chains. They are effectively passing the ball in the flats to their backs so far this season, but with Iowa only bringing defensive line pressure, that allows seven other defenders to key in on the passing game . Needless to say, the usually passfirst Wildcats need some balance to stay afloat on Saturday. DBs can’t fall asleep For as much talk as there is about Iowa being a run-first, grind-it-out team, the Hawkeyes and Ricky Stanzi will make
the Wildcats pay if they fall asleep. “They’re a great run team,” said cornerback Robert Golden. “So they try to run, run, run then play action you know, so try to get the secondary to fall asleep and hit you on the over the top.” Iowa isn’t the “spread it out and go deep” style of team by any means, but Iowa’s top two receivers through two games — Allen Reisner and Marvin McNutt — have caught balls for 55 and 66 yards, respectively. With that said, the Wildcats need to key in on stopping the run, but the quartet of Golden, Trevin Wade, Joe Perkins, and Anthony Wilcox need to stay alert.
Players to watch for Arizona
OT — Adam Grant It’s rare that the outcome of a game rests on the shoulders of an offensive lineman, but that’s how things are shaping up this weekend. Adrian Clayborn is one of the best defensive ends in the country, and sixth-year senior Adam Grant will be lining up against him on every snap this weekend. At 6-foot-6 and 325 pounds, Grant has the size advantage over the 6-foot-4, 285-pound Clayborn, but he’ll have his hands full with one of the best defensive ends in the country. And not only does Grant need to keep Clayborn from getting to Nick Foles, he also has to help get a solid push to give Nic Grigsby and Keola Antolin room to run. If the Wildcats can’t establish a run game, their quick-pass style will soon become predictable, making them one-dimensional and very beatable. Moral of the story: Adam Grant needs a huge game. RBs — Nic Grigsby/Keola Antolin If Arizona can’t establish a run game, they’re doomed. While that does start with the offensive line, Grigsby and Antolin need to hit the holes hard and keep the Wildcats balanced. Grigsby had a huge game against The Citadel with 115 yards and three touchdowns, but the Hawkeyes are lightyears ahead of the Bulldogs. Last season, Grigsby ripped off a 58-yard run in Iowa City,

but he can’t dance around and wait for one big run this time around. He needs to get going early and often to give Arizona a chance. As for Antolin, head coach Mike Stoops said they need to get him the ball more and Saturday is the perfect chance. He’s been extremely effective catching the ball in the flats, but offers a nice change of pace as a downhill back against a smash-mouth team like Iowa. If Grigsby is caught dancing and Antolin is stuffed at the line, Arizona is in trouble. NT — Lolomana Mikaele This game is going to be decided up
front, and the Wildcats need a big game from nose tackle Lolomana Mikaele to take the Hawkeyes out of their game plan. Iowa and running back Adam Robinson are looking to pound the ball and kill clock, which is where Mikaele comes in. The 6-foot-2, 305-pound senior captain will anchor Arizona’s run defense at nose tackle, and he needs to help the Wildcats get a solid push and not allow Robinson and the Hawkeyes any room between the tackles. If Mikaele and the rest of the defensive line can get penetration and get the offense back on the field, Arizona is in good shape.

Game Breakdown: Iowa Arizona Daily Wildcat
Players to watch for Iowa
DE — Adrian Clayborn No player will have more star power on the field Saturday than defensive end Adrian Clayborn. He currently sits at No. 5 on Mel Kiper’s Big Board, and is an expected top-5 draft pick. As Ricky Elmore put it, “He’s not only big, he’s fast, he’s athletic and he’s really experienced. I think his experience with his athletic ability, strength and speed just makes him one of those type of players we’re not used to seeing every week.” The senior is the real deal. In 2009, he totaled 70 tackles, 20 tackles for a loss and 11.5 sacks, including four forced fumbles. He can wreak havoc in Arizona’s backfield, so keep your eye on No. 9 because he will undoubtedly be heard from numerous times Saturday night. QB — Ricky Stanzi The senior quarterback is a seasoned veteran who does a decent job of managing the game. Because of the nature of Iowa’s offense, he isn’t going to wow you, but he’s effective and a great fit for the Hawekeyes’ attack. “He’s really been a more consistent and deliberate thrower, seems to be able to read things better,” Stoops said of Stanzi this season. “He’s played awfully well and has made great decisions. He can throw the ball down the field. He does a lot of good things.” RB — Adam Robinson Robinson was only a two-star recruit out of high school, and only garnered serious interest from Iowa. But in his sophomore campaign the 5-foot9, 205-pound running back has proven to be exactly what Iowa needs — a back with a combination of power and speed. He had a solid freshman campaign as well — 834 yards rushing and five touchdowns — and has carried that into 2010. With Iowa’s focus on slowing the game down and pounding the ball, the Wildcats should see a heavy dose of Robinson. The sophomore exploded for 158 yards on only 14 carries last week against Iowa State, which is something Arizona can’t let happen if it hopes to have a chance Saturday night.

against Iowa that it didn’t last season — the crowd. And thanks to the ZonaZoo and the city of Tucson living on Wildcat football, Arizona has won 13 of its last 16 home games by an average of nearly 25 points. “The atmosphere is going to be wild,” running back Nic Grigsby said. “They’re coming here, that’s the good part. Our fan support, our student section, they go wild so it’s going to be great.” The Hawkeyes need to take the crowd out of the game early — via turnover or big play — to swing the momentum in their favor. If the Hawkeyes can deflate some of the hype surrounding this game, and if the Wildcat crowd goes quiet, Arizona’s biggest advantage goes out the window. Ball control Last season, Iowa was largely successful because they had nearly a full quarter of playing time advantage, holding the ball for nearly 15 minutes longer than the Wildcats. The Hawkeyes took advantage of long, sustained drives and converted on 10 of 19 third downs to keep the Wildcats off the field. Although it’s performed admirably so far this season, Arizona’s defense is still young and inexperienced. The longer Hawkeyes have the ball, the
more tested the Wildcats’ defense will be and the more potential for blown assignments to have a large impact on the scoreboard. “As long as we don’t let that train get going I think it’s going to help our team a lot,” said defensive end Ricky Elmore of Iowa’s time of possession. “As long as we have our offense with the ball and let our team control the tempo of the game, it’s really going to help us out.” Stick to the game plan The Hawkeyes have used their size and fundamentally sound style of play for years now and it’s resulted in nothing but success — and that needs to remain the same on Saturday. The Arizona offense has been impressive through two games, but the Iowa defense is on a whole other playing field compared to The Citadel and Toledo. “They don’t have as much speed, but they fill holes and get after you pretty good,” said Nic Grigsby. “That’s the thing with them, they’re going to come down and fill the holes.” The physical nature of Iowa’s defense is something Arizona will need to overcome if it looks to find consistency. If Iowa maintains its identity on defense, the Wildcats could be hardpressed for points and ball possession.

Staff Picks When a program is trying to make the leap into national prominence there comes a time when a statement has to be made on a grand scale. Arizona got close last season against Oregon and then fell flat on its face against Nebraska. But in the grand scheme of things, 2009 will be viewed as one step forward for Arizona football. The Tim Kosch Wildcats are now good enough for each game in 2010 to be a barometer of where the program is, and that sort of pressure week in and week out will not only be realized this week but handled with ease. Unlike everyone else, I think the Wildcats are going to take control early and never look back. Arizona 31, Iowa 16
In the biggest non-conference game Arizona Stadium has seen in nearly 20 years, ZonaZoo fans will not leave disappointed. One of the nation’s best defenses will collide with one of the nation’s more exciting offenses — who will come out on top? While Nick Foles will prove he’s arrived and Arizona’s defense will continue to defy expectations, Iowa Mike Schmitz is simply too experienced and scary defensively to fall to the Wildcats. Expect Arizona to struggle to establish a running game, consequently they will become predictable in the passing game, and fall just short of the Hawkeyes. The Wildcats will gain national respect with a well-played game but not the recognition that would come along with an upset over a top-10 team. Iowa 24, Arizona 21
If Wildcat fans were to ever see a battle of epic proportions in Arizona Stadium, this would be it. The No. 9 Hawkeyes descend on Tucson with potentially the biggest matchup of the year for No. 24 Arizona. Both teams have something to prove here — Arizona’s looking for respect around college Nicole football, Iowa’s seeking a rankedwin on the road. The game will Dimtsios come down to the play of the defenses, Iowa’s strength matched against Arizona’s speed. In this case, I think strength stifles the Wildcats again. Iowa 27, Arizona 20
