Bill strips UA domestic partner’s benefits By Will Ferguson and Hank Dean Stephenson ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Gov. Jan Brewer signed a bill into law on Sept. 4 that redefined dependent status for state employees, stripping 170 domestic partners at the UA of their state health care benefits. The bill, H.B. 2013, will prevent state-employed, same-sex domestic partners from claiming state benefits for their partners as well as unmarried heterosexual couples, children of domestic partners, full-

time students over the age of 22 who are claimed as dependents and disabled adult dependents. Liz Sawyer, spokeswoman for OUTReach, a UA staff group that supports domestic-partner benefits, said 40 of the employees who will lose state benefits are same-sex domestic partners and the remaining 130 are unmarried heterosexual couples. In addition to the bill’s impact on domestic partners, as many as 500 university employees may lose coverage for family members who are

dependents on their current state plan, Sawyer said. Sawyer said she wasn’t surprised when Brewer signed the bill into law. She said, “I have the luxury of being able to have my own insurance. My partner and I didn’t sign up for domestic partner benefits because we didn’t think it would last.” Matt Heinz, Tucson Medical Center physician and Democratic state Representative for downtown and southeast Tucson, called the bill shortsighted and mean.

“It just seems like the absolute wrong time to do this kind of change, it’s the wrong change to make,” Heinz said. “It’s extremely short-sighted, it hurts our public sector, it hurts our universities, it hurts us all across the board. We continue to walk backward. Actually, we’re kind of sprinting backwards.” Eliminating funding for qualified domestic partners is going to hurt UA’s ability to recruit coveted researchers and academics, Heinz said. “(Qualified domestic partner health care coverage) got really high-quality

Marine Corps pilots students to the sky

Daily Wildcat photographer Mike Christy went along for the ride aboard the King Air 200 with several other UA students as part of the free Marine Corps Flight Orientation Program. The program gives college students and faculty the chance to fly a plane. But even though Christy got a chance to take the controls, there was a price to be paid. My adrenaline was pumping when we took off. Here I am riding at 9,500 feet in a twin-prop airplane at 8:30 a.m., hours before classes would start. There are eight people aboard including the reporter and myself. I figured that I would only have to sit through about six turns of students flying before we began the descent back down. Not too bad. But when the first student’s turn at the controls hit the 10-minute mark, I was sheer sweat, like seven-rounds-withMike-Tyson-sweat. Everyone was staring.

Swine flu pandemic to worsen ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT UA employees received an email on Thursday stressing new recommendations to limit the spread of the H1N1 virus, which officials say is already spreading through campus. National health experts predict as many as one in four people in the United States will become ill this fall with H1N1, also known as swine flu, the e-mail from Dr. Harry McDermott, executive director of Campus Health Services said. As many as 320 cases of flu have been diagnosed on campus since Aug. 17, which is unusual for this time of year, McDermott said in a separate e-mail to the Daily Wildcat. McDermott stressed the importance of both seasonal flu and H1N1 vaccinations for employees. McDermott told the Daily Wildcat the UA is to receive a supply of H1N1 vaccine as soon as it becomes available. But it’s still too early to say when the UA will receive vaccine shipments, he said. The campus will also have to wait till the federal government releases its first vaccine shipments before officials know how much vaccine will be available to the UA and when it will arrive. The Web site for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the vaccine will be available sometime this fall, but there is no specific date yet. In the meantime, McDermott recommends good hygiene, such as frequent hand washing. Also, McDermott advised sick employees to stay home and asked for leniency from employers in the likely event there is increased absenteeism. Persons who feel they are seriously ill are asked to call their doctor’s office first before going in to limit the virus’ spread.

Surgeons develop revolutionary procedure to save countless lives By Angel Allen ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT A pair of surgeons at the University Medical Center has developed a groundbreaking medical procedure that could save victims of a pancreatic disease from developing severe diabetes. Horacio Rilo, M.D., director of the Center for Cellular Transplantation and Rainer Gruessner, M.D., chairman of the UA Department of Surgery, are the lead developers of the procedure, known as “auto-islet cell transplantation,” for patients with severe chronic pancreatitis, a disease of the pancreas that can lead to cancer. The pain caused by pancreatitis

can be severely debilitating, Gruessner said, adding, “Once you are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, you are pretty much dead.” In the past, the common treatment for pancreatitis is to remove the pancreas completely to alleviate pain and prevent cancer. However, the removal of the organ also removes the islets inside the pancreas that produce insulin. Without these islets, patients develop a severe form of diabetes, known as brittle diabetes, and are dependent on insulin for the rest of their lives. Brittle diabetes is the most extreme type of diabetes and comes with many other problems, Gruessner said, including heart disease, blindness, stroke and early death.

Rilo and Gruessner have developed an operation where the pancreas is removed but islets are transplanted into the liver, making the diabetes less severe. In the bestcase scenario, patients can become independent of insulin. In the worst-case scenario, they need only a small number of units of insulin daily. Only a handful of people in the world can perform this surgery, Gruessner said. He said he was able to procure $1.5 million from UMC to develop state-of-the-art facilities and sign on Rilo to assist in the actual surgery. “Without the recruitment of Dr. Rilo,” SURGERY, page 5

BOSTON — Mary Travers, one-third of the popular 1960s folk trio Peter, Paul and Mary who were perhaps best known for their hit “Puff (The Magic Dragon),” died in a Connecticut hospital after battling leukemia for several years. She was 72. Mary Travers The band’s publicist, Heather Lylis, said Travers died Wednesday at Danbury Hospital. Bandmate Peter Yarrow said that in her final months, Travers handled her declining health with bravery and generosity, showing her love to friends and family “with great dignity and without restraint.” “It was, as Mary always was, honest and completely authentic,” he said. “That’s the way she sang, too; honestly and with complete authenticity.” Noel “Paul” Stookey, the trio’s other member, praised Travers for her inspiring activism,“especially in her defense of the defenseless.” “I am deadened and heartsick beyond words to consider a life without Mary Travers and honored beyond my wildest dreams to have shared her spirit and her career,” he said. Mary Allin Travers was born on Nov. 9, 1936 in Louisville, Ky., the daughter of journalists who moved the family to Manhattan’s bohemian Greenwich Village. She quickly became enamored with folk performers like the Weavers, and was soon performing with Pete Seeger, a founding member of the Weavers who lived in the same building as the Travers family. It wasn’t until she met up with Yarrow and Stookey that Travers would taste success on her own. The group collected five Grammy Awards for their three-part harmony on enduring songs like “Leaving on a Jet Plane,”‘’Puff (The Magic Dragon)” and “Blowin’ in the Wind.” Travers had undergone a successful bone marrow transplant to treat her leukemia and was able to return to performing after that. “It was like a miracle,”Travers told The Associated Press in 2006. “I’m just feeling fabulous. What’s incredible is someone has given your life back. I’m out in the garden today. This time last year I was looking out a window at a hospital.” But by mid-2009,Yarrow told WTOP radio in Washington that her condition had worsened again and he thought she would no longer be able to perform. Travers lived for many years in Redding, Conn. She is survived by her husband, Ethan Robbins and daughters, Alicia and Erika. — The Associated Press

‘Darwin’ auditions an experience in evolution By Anna Swenson Arizona Daily Wildcat Fifty students sat cross-legged on the floor of a mirrored room in the heart of the Drama building late Wednesday night. Ten upperclassmen stared back at them, seated behind a long wooden table. The air was hot and the atmosphere was nervous. It wasn’t a bizarre hazing ritual. It wasn’t recruitment week. The university hasn’t hired students to teach classes in the middle of the night. The sound in the air was not of chainsaws, but of laughter. It was the fall auditions for The Charles Darwin Experience. The poker-faced moderators were far from the flamboyant personalities Tuesday audiences see. Instead, they were marking in their notes and coolly considering the crop of potential cast members. While The Charles Darwin Experience performances are far from G-rated, they pride themselves on trying to steer their scenes in the classy direction when possible. “It’s funny, but it’s easy,” cast member Brad Kula said to the hopefuls about using profanity and going too far. Many of the auditioners seemed to realize that only after they pantomimed masturbation in their scene. The current Darwins were not quick to smile and met most of the miniperformances with a polite, “Thank you, next!” as the only comment. More than 50 comedy hopefuls and over 30 spectators came Wednesday to see if they had the chops to join the UA’s premiere short form comedy group. The troupe, which current cast member Victoria Hochuli describes simply as “a hell of a lot of

fun,” fills Gallagher Theatre to over capacity every Tuesday night. “We’re just a group of badasses performing for badasses who like badass things,” said Kula as he sat outside the building, greeting hopeful student who aspire to earn the privilege of calling themselves a Darwin. “We’re looking for someone who’s real,” Kula said. “I think as soon as you try to be something you’re not, you become instantly unfunny.” As the bright-eyed comedy hopefuls completed a brief questionnaire that featured questions like, “What do you bring to the proverbial Darwin table?” and “Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?” Kula described what The Charles Darwin Experience tried to accomplish. “There is just such a guttural, instinctual reaction to laugh,” Kula explained. “We’re looking for people who are naturally funny.” He also said, “We don’t want anyone that’s too heady or pretentious.” “It’s always a surprise,” Hotchuli said about the auditions. “We might take one person, we might take no people, we might take everyone.” Surveying the growing crowd of over 70, Hotchuli laughed and said, “well, not everyone.” As for the audition participants, the common theme for them, too, seemed to be a sense of fun. When asked why they were giving up precious hours of study and sleep time, they said: “I like making people laugh,” “It’s a good way to express yourself,” and “We were looking for something to do on a Wednesday night.” One hopeful was less shy and boldly stated the seeming consensus of the group: “I want to be a Darwin because the Darwins are the shit!” In the auditions themselves, not-

yet-evolved Darwins were subject to various improvisation games while the current cast looked on. As Kula explained, “We’re looking for people who can develop a character, and has wit and humor.” There were many funny moments that night. When the Darwins asked an auditioner as part of an improv game, “Do you remember when you were president of the feminist committee?” the quick-witted young man answered, “Well, they needed someone to cook for.” The group of mostly freshmen, mostly male, and mostly nervous

hopefuls were eager to be funny, even when they actually weren’t. The room was filled with undaunted ego and unchecked thresholds of decency in comedy, as contestants were more likely to invoke stereotypes or literally take their pants off than coax a smile out of the board of standing Darwins. Did the Darwins find their new rhyming, guitar-playing, witty, handsome, Converse-footed star? It is difficult to say: between the guardedness of the judges and the kerfuffle of the audition setting, only the final cast list will tell. It will

the Marine Corp Flight Orientation Program in the district, instructs students and faculty to “try to fly straight and level and be real gentle on the control.” He informed passengers Ziploc bags are kept onboard for anyone who may feel sick. “I don’t like it when that happens,” he said. Birt, who has been a pilot for six years, has been working in the program for the past two years and has one year left. Becoming a pilot in the U.S. Marine Corps was “probably the hardest thing I did,” Birt said. “But the most rewarding.” About half the people who participate in the program just want to have fun while the other half are interested in possibly pursuing a career as a pilot, he said. Political science senior Erin Sperling said she saw a pamphlet for the program in the Student Union Memorial Center on Wednesday and made a reservation. “I’ve always wanted to fly a plane,” she said. “I figured it was a free chance to fly and I wanted to take advantage of that.” Sperling said if she were going to enter the military she would choose aviation.

“I think it’s a bit empowering (for women),” she said. “In the military there are still some limitations as far as what women can do, especially when it comes to combat. I think piloting is a much more level playing field.” Sperling said after flying she is thinking about a career as a Marine Corps pilot. “Before I went up I was just going to do it for fun,”she said.“Now I’m definitely going to consider it (becoming a pilot). It was the most exhilarating feeling.” Pima Community College student Tyler Ashton said he has been interested in joining the Marine Corps for a while and after flying he wants to become a Marine Corps pilot. “It was great,” he said. “It was hard, I have a lot to learn. I felt it in my stomach whenever I did anything wrong — that little drop feeling.” Homewood said while he enjoyed the flight, but he doesn’t want to join the Marine Corps. “I wouldn’t personally join,” he said. “I don’t know if I’m the right person for the job. I feel like I belong on the side of building planes.” Although he won’t be joining the Marine Corps, Homewood said the program “encouraged me to get a private pilot license to fly as a hobby.”

Tuesday night regulars will be excited to see what diamond in the rough the Darwins have polished up to add to their jeweled crown of talent, humor and fun. That is why everyone was there until well after midnight on Wednesday night: because talent is attractive. By that standard, the Darwins are stunning, the proverbial crown jewels of free weekday entertainment.

MAILBAG Honest protest versus dishonest slander I thought I would discuss yesterday’s talk given by Rabbi Dovid Weiss as well as give some of my thoughts on the controversy surrounding his visit to campus. From what I gathered from the talk and other media sources, Weiss believes that there should not be a Jewish state, and that there is no biblical foundation for the State of Israel. Whatever one thinks about that argument, it is far from hateful. He did not deny the Holocaust occurred and did not call for genocide or expulsion of his own people from the land of Israel/Palestine. For the most part, the anti-speech protesters were respectful, although some of them engaged onlookers with their propagandistic flyers and misinformation. Overhearing some of these untruths, half-truths, and outright lies, I challanged some of the anti-speech protesters with what I knew about Weiss. And to the extent that these interchanges became ad hominem and interfered with his talk, I regret my part in that. Unlike cooler heads at the event (the rabbi, the coolest of them all), I lost my temper at times. But I would like to think that even in expressing my passionate views, I at least told the truth. A problem I have with these anti-protest groups is not that they protested the speech of Weiss, but rather the level of dishonesty into which they engaged. I am not naïve to believe that propaganda and lies aren’t staples of partisan debate. And while I don’t personally think telling lies is the right approach in advocating a position, I realize that passionate debate sometimes devolves into deception. But I believe students and student groups ought to be held to a higher ethical standard. This anti-speech group engaged in the most slanderous campaign of misinformation about Weiss. The deceit spanned from misleading propaganda

to outright lies. Particularly troubling was the behavior of a fellow graduate student of mine in the department of Near Eastern studies. My fellow graduate student, who hearsay and my intuition tells me was the chief loud-mouth and organizer of these protests, put himself behind a set of lies in an attempt to poison the well of those, in general, who believe in the free exchange of ideas. As graduate students and future academics, we are held to a high ethical standard in the work we submit, both to our instructors and for publication. But this high standard of truth, in my view, ought to extend to the words we tell our fellow students and our professors. The professors and students in our department ought to expect that we are telling each other the truth. While not having any hard evidence at this point (although, plenty of hearsay), I firmly believe that this fellow graduate student used the good rapport he has with the professors and his fellow graduate students to feed them misleading information.  As graduate students (indeed, professors as well), we are extremely busy with our work and do not have time to investigate claims made about issues and individuals. This gentleman, no doubt, took advantage of this fact. And the fact that Weiss said nothing hateful, the allegations of “hate-speech” are shown to be lies, which, had they done any research of this rabbi, they would have known to be the case. To be clear, I am not opposed to those who protested Weiss, but I do object to the behavior of this fellow graduate student, whose actions cannot be excused by his passion for the State of Israel or Zionism.  Academic honesty does not stop at the paper’s edge. Rather, it carries through in our words and actions.

Guns on campus: Why ASUA needs to act now

hey see you rollin’, they’re not hatin’, the Arizona Legislature want to see you riding dirty. On June 26, the Arizona Legislature passed H.B. 2439, allowing guns onto university campuses. Students with concealed weapons permits can now store their firearm in the vehicle when parked on campus. The UA Faculty Senate issued a resolution in response to the actions of the state legislature and subsequent Arizona Board of Regents policy revision. It states: “The Faculty Senate of the University of Arizona would like to express its grave concern for not only the safety of faculty, but our students and staff with the revisions to Arizona Board of Regents Policies 5-303 (Prohibited Conduct) and 5-308 (Student Code of Conduct) to allow guns on campus in locked vehicles or in locked containers on motorcycles.” Supporters of this bill claim that it will cut down on the number of massacres on college campuses, but they fail to provide any real logic to back up that statement. In the case of a campus emergency, college students shouldn’t be running to their cars in an attempt to play out some hero fantasy. The last thing needed in an emergency are more people with guns creating confusion for real police officers. In a campus shooting, how are police officers supposed to discern who is the real gunman? Police are trained to react quickly and decisively. Hesitating during a campus shooting can lead to increased killing of innocent people. The University of Arizona Police Department cannot be expected to react in due time if they cannot identify the true criminal because gun-wielding students get in their way. Firearms may be a somewhat legitimate form of personal protection in one’s home, but they do not imbue the wielder with the task or ability of protecting the university as a whole. Sen. John Huppenthal, R-Chandler, said “There’s a large number of rapes of coeds as they leave campus and they go to their home,” without citing any actual statistics. Campus security at night is always a concern, but there are many stages between defenseless and carrying a firearm. Students can purchase any number of defensive mechanisms, including pepper spray, expandable nightsticks or a taser. All weapons can be misused, but these devices provide non-lethal security without the risk of accidentally killing someone. Allowing students to pack heat in their ride is not a solution, it will only enflame situations and lessen safety. Of the deluge of e-mails sent by President Robert Shelton, there was not a single one about the change of this crucial policy. It’s hard to believe that the administration considers swine flu to be more dangerous than firearms on campus.

At Wednesday’s ASUA senate meeting, this issue received much less attention than the situation demands, despite the fact that ASUA President Dan Chris Nagata stressed Sotelo the importance of a student response to columnist this legislation. The discussion started as Sen. Tyler Quillin suggested the senate issue its own resolution. Two minutes later, the discussion was over. Only two other senators participated, both advocating for more research and student input before going any further. As representatives of the student population, ASUA must represent the needs and preferences of the students at the UA. The need to wait for more input, especially students’ views, is applicable to the formation of a resolution, but not a discussion. As the UA is a state agency, the university must adhere to state laws. However, H.B. 2439 was passed nearly three months ago, so ASUA has had ample time to plan a way of informing students about this bill in order to receive feedback. Despite this window of opportunity, there has been little or no publicity regarding this bill, leaving most students completely uninformed. When asked about their personal views, Sens. Sarah Bratt and Hilary Davidson expressed reservations about the efficacy of allowing guns on campus. “Our primary concern is for the safety of the students and how this bill affects that,” Davidson said. Aside from the safety concerns, senators questioned the motivation for this bill’s expedient passage. Sen. Katherine Weingartner wondered “why the Legislature dedicated time to allow guns on campus when there is a budget crisis.” However, they did not raise these concerns because they don’t want their personal opinions to drive senate action. ASUA senators must remember that they are students too. Engaging in meaningful discussion will allow the senate to hash out the practical advantages and disadvantages of this bill. Their discussion will not determine the resolution, but it will allow them to canvas the university in order to more efficiently and accurately represent the concerns of the students. The UA administration and student government have not taken the initiative to inform students and gauge their collective sentiments. One would hope that Shelton and the administration deem this issue important enough for another mass e-mail. As the discussion in the ASUA senate continues, there needs to be serious debate amongst the senators as they advocate for legitimate student concerns. Student leaders must first find their own voices if they are to represent student opinions on campus gun control. — Dan Sotelo is a political science senior. He can be reached at

Football over freedom: the ‘stadium law’

he cheerful insanity of football season has begun — the massive tailgates and the tens of thousands of fans roaring from their seats for victory of their favorite teams. But I wonder how many of us shrieking Wildcats know the seats that we sit on were paid for by money that restricts a woman’s right to choose. Despite colorful appearances, we didn’t always have such a tremendous football culture, or a membership in the prestigious “Pacific-10 Conference” (otherwise known as the “Conference of Champions”). And we didn’t always have the massive stadium we do now, a burly monolith that can be seen from 30 miles away. Back in 1974, our stadium was lacking by tens of thousands of seats, the standards required for Pac-10 membership. A year prior, in 1973, Roe v. Wade made it not only illegal to criminalize women who choose to have an abortion, but affirmed that “rapid and simple abortion referral must be readily available through state and local public health departments, medical societies, or other nonprofit organizations.” For anti-abortion advocates, however, Roe v. Wade represented a nightmare that simply had to be thwarted in any way. A university desperate for major football standing and anti-abortion politicians seeking creative ways to nullify Roe v. Wade was perhaps an alliance few could have foreseen. Then-UA President John P. Schaefer’s long “quest” for stadium renovations found its solace in a bond bill that would allocate

to the university the needed $5.5 million. Knowing how desperate the UA was for the money, Arizona Legislator Jim Skelly attached a technical rider onto the bill that Gabriel stipulated the prohibition Matthew of abortions at all public Schivone educational facilities under columnist Arizona Board of Regents jurisdiction (UA, ASU, and NAU) “unless to save the life of the mother.” In other words, if the UA accepts the money, the university agrees to outlaw abortions. Given the unconstitutionality of the ban, Schaefer probably thought that the rider would be destroyed and the UA would still be able to keep the money. But such a moral gamble with women’s rights proved disastrous. The clause remains as a statute in the Arizona Constitution 35 years later. Even Jim Skelly, the legislator who authored the rider which locked onto the bond bill, was quoted mocking in a 2000 Tucson Citizen article, reflecting on how his premeditated scheme had “worked.” “The university’s ideology sure went down the drain when it came to expanding the sports arena, now didn’t it?” He was exactly right. But the important question remains how students and the UA community choose to respond to this great injustice. Especially as generations of medical students are continually robbed of a comprehensive education and as the overall UA community remains complicit in the crimes of their past administrations. Even President Robert Shelton, who is the ultimate heir to Schaefer’s

shame, candidly responded to me about an interview request on the UA-led abortion ban, admitting his own ignorance of the entire matter, He had no information on it whatsoever. But the first difficulty of any injustice is, of course, the lack of people even knowing about it, whether prestigious university administrators or passionate undergraduate students. Interdisciplinary studies senior Ali Weber recalls when she first heard about the stadium law while taking a sociology class last spring. “I never spoke a whole lot in that class,” she remarked.“But when I realized what was happening in terms of the ban, I pulled myself up on my desk and said what do you mean they don’t teach abortion? It’s a life-saving procedure! It’s like not teaching how to catheterize someone!” Many students likely share Weber’s fury when they hear how their university administrators sold out abortion rights so that they could join the Pac-10. As an Arizona Daily Star article from May, 1974, relates, the $5.5 million in bonds “would be paid off through ticket receipts.” So it goes, every time we use UA facilities we are directly supporting this illegal ban. The situation doesn’t have to remain so bleak, however. Our shared culpability for the ban also opens the path for possible solutions. The problem with the ban isn’t only that it’s unjust and outright criminal, but rather that people like us tolerate it. Frankly, the main problem with the ban is our civil obedience to it. People across the state, particularly those with more opportunity and measurable forms of power and privilege, such as university students, professors, medical professionals, etc., can, with awareness

and civil initiative, directly challenge the law’s legitimacy and express the issue publicly as a compelling question of civil, political and economic rights entitled to the populace. And there are many ways open for us to do so. Students can raise a rumpus about it, first of all. Medical professors can violate the climate of the ban and teach their students a more comprehensive and honest curriculum on abortion procedures. Doctors can violate the ban and offer to perform abortions. Yet, while many pro-choice advocates fail to act, there are groups of people that organize themselves to uphold the law when the government fails to do so. Planned Parenthood, the largest health organization in southern Arizona, provides comprehensive reproductive care, including abortions — the only organization to offer such services in the state. Among young people, the local affiliate of Medical Students for Choice transcends at least the social barriers of the ban and simply “creates the opportunity for medical students who wish to supplement their education by hosting clinical skills sessions, collaborating with Planned Parenthood and working to raise awareness of this issue,” said Allison Lowe, Medical Students for Choice President. The question is how many of us will join them in refusing to accept these criminal norms. Ironically, such actions are dependent entirely on our will and ultimate choice. — Gabriel Schivone is an art, literature and media studies junior. He can be reached at

Hundreds lose health care after Brewer signs new law

continued from page 1

representing the Foothills, said the bill, which was part of the budget agreement, wasn’t about money. Social conservatives in his party wanted to get rid of domestic partner benefits, which were enacted by an executive order from former Gov. Janet Napolitano about a year ago. “I don’t think that the people who cared about it one way or the other were really looking at it in (financial) terms,” Paton said. “It was important for people on both ends of the spectrum because of moral reasons … We’re not talking about money, we’re talking something that is more of a value-based arrangement.” Heinz said this is the worst possible time to create more uninsured Arizonans and the change is going to cost the state a lot of money as people who could have gone to their primary care physician will now end up in the emergency room as a last resort. “While we can’t see the costs of that right now, I assure you that in a year, in two years, in five years having all those people uninsured is going to cost

a heck of a lot more than $2 million for the state,” he said. Sawyer agreed the state actually stands to lose money if those who are left uninsured due to the new bill apply for Arizona’s Medicaid plan, Arizona Healthcare Cost Containment System (AHCCCS). “If everyone who was signed up for Domestic Partner Benefits goes to AHCCCS it will cost $7.5 million,” said Sawyer. Sawyer said the university administration has so far been extremely supportive in helping those affected by the bill find alternative forms of coverage. President Robert Shelton recognizes the negative impact that this bill will have on the university’s image, she said. In a memo sent to the all employee listserv, Shelton said, “H.B. 2013 challenges our values of equity and inclusion and also appears to exclude vital health insurance coverage for any disabled dependents. Benefits parity is essential for a world-class university and we are resolved to achieve it.”

UMC spearheads fight against pancreatic disease

Gruessner said, “these life-changing surgeries would not be possible.” The surgeons have performed two islet cell transplants so far, out of 1,500 to 2,000 potential patients. In the procedure, the pancreas is removed, then the islets — which make up about two percent of the pancreas — are separated from the pancreas and implanted in the liver. Rilo said he had to build his own equipment to make the isolation possible.

“It’s not like I can go to a store and say I’d like one of those and one of those,” he said. “No one else in the world is doing this. I have to build everything from scratch.” Rilo’s lab is filled with new technologies and exciting discoveries, said Jo Marie Gellerman, public affairs official for the UMC. “Dr. Rilo is the ideal mad scientist,” she said. Robots and high-tech isolation

machines are among the tools Rilo has built to make the isolation successful. He has a room in his lab — known around the lab as “Brain Box” — that contains different pieces of equipment he is working on, things that have been momentarily discarded, and inventions waiting to happen. “We use anything we can to make what we need.

Coyotes owner wants NHL ordered to mediation The Associated Press PHOENIX — Beleaguered Phoenix Coyotes owner Jerry Moyes has asked a federal bankruptcy judge for an emergency hearing to order the NHL to mediate the“key sale issues”in the complicated case. The request was made Thursday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court by the attorneys who filed for Chapter 11 protection on behalf of Moyes on May 5. The proposal came as Judge Redfield T. Baum considers whether to award the team to the NHL or to Canadian billionaire James Balsillie, who would move the team as soon as possible to Hamilton, Ontario, over the vehement objection of the league. The filing says the NHL rejected mediation in an e-mail to Moyes’ attorneys on Wednesday. “Considering the amount of fees associated with continued disputes in this court regarding the sale process and what could be a protracted appellate process (depending on how the court rules), the debtors believe that a goodfaith effort to arrive at a mediated

resolution of the Key Sale Issues would be in all parties’ interest,” the Moyes filing said. Baum has said in court that he would love the sides to come together but doubted after everything he had heard and read that such an agreement was possible. The “key issues” listed in the Moyes filing are the ones most contested by the NHL — the transfer of ownership to Balsillie, the timing and feasibility of relocating the franchise to Hamilton and the amount of relocation fee to be charged by the league. The NHL board of governors voted 26-0 against Balsillie as an owner, labeling him untrustworthy. The Canadian, has failed in previous attempts to buy the Pittsburgh Penguins and Nashville Predators. The league agrees that Hamilton is a thriving hockey market and says the city would be considered for expansion. But the NHL says Balsillie and Moyes concocted a scheme to get the team to Hamilton through a “side door” rather than follow the league’s rules. On Tuesday night, the Glendale City

Council rejected Balsillie’s offer of $50 million if the city would drop its objection to the franchise’s move. Instead, the council reaffirmed its support of the NHL offer. Moyes showed up at the council meeting and wanted to speak in support of the Balsillie proposal, but Mayor Elaine Scruggs and city officials would not let him talk and asked him to leave. “The city of Glendale would be better off without hockey,” Moyes told The Arizona Republic outside the council chambers. He said that if the NHL wins the bid, “The team is going to be gone in a year.” The NHL says it would look to quickly resell the team outside the bankruptcy process, but the league’s deputy commissioner Bill Daly has said a new lease agreement with Glendale needs to be reached by the end of the calendar year for that to happen. NHL officials have indicated the two groups that pulled out of the bidding would be interested in buying the team and keeping it Arizona. If a local buyer can’t be found, the NHL would look to relocate the franchise.

Humanitarians demand redress The Associated Press MEXICO CITY — An Indian market vendor who was wrongly convicted of kidnapping and spent three years in prison deserves compensation for the time she was locked away, Amnesty International said Thursday. “Nothing will replace the three years she lost, but it is vital that those responsible for this injustice

be brought before justice, and that she receive an appropriate compensation,” said Kerrie Howard, Amnesty International’s deputy director for the Americas. Jacinta Francisco Marcial, whose kidnapping conviction sparked an international protest, walked out of prison Wednesday after authorities decided not to contest an appeal of her 21-year sentence.

Gotta love those sorority girl fights!!

Mexico’s Indians, many of whom don’t speak Spanish, have a right to an interpreter in legal proceedings under current law, but none was apparently provided to Marcial, an Otomi Indian, during the initial stages of her trial. “I didn’t even know what kidnapping was,” Marcial, 46, told reporters Thursday, speaking in a Spanish that she largely learned while in prison. “I couldn’t stop crying.”

of course,” Rilo said. The next step in the development of this technique, Gruessner said, is using islet isolation and transplant to reverse diabetes. Rilo and his team are already making skin for burn victims, liver cells for liver operations and working with transparent fish to watch the internal operations that allow them to swim. “What we do here is regenerative medicine,”he said.“You can’t wait until an organ fails. Then it is too late.”

House passes student-loan legislation


Staff and Wire Reports The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill on Thursday that makes major changes to how college students receive financial aid. The House voted 253 to 171 for the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act. Among other things, the bill ends federal subsidies for private lenders, leaving the government to make all its student loans directly. The bill also expands the Pell Grant program and simplifies the financial aid application process. The measure now moves to the Senate, where its fate is less certain. Earlier this week, members of the Arizona Students Association demonstrated on the UA Mall in favor of the bill. But even though the bill passed the House, representatives of the studentlobbying group say their grassroots campaign is just beginning. “We’re really excited that that happened, but obviously we still have a lot of work to do,” said Elma Delic, vice chair of the ASA Board of Directors. “Obviously it still has to pass the Senate,” she said. The bill’s critics say it amounts to a government takeover of student lending. Lawmakers split largely along party lines on the bill, with only six Republicans in favor and four Democrats against. Southern Arizona’s two Congress members, Democrats Gabrielle Giffords and Raul Grijalva, both voted for the bill.

Gov’t stands by as mercury taints water The Associated Press

NEW IDRIA, Calif. — Abandoned mercury mines throughout central California’s rugged coastal mountains are polluting the state’s major waterways, rendering fish unsafe to eat and risking the health of at least 100,000 impoverished people. But an investigation by The Associated Press found that the federal government has tried to clean up fewer than a dozen of the hundreds of mines — and most cleanups have failed to stem the contamination. Although the mining ceased decades ago, records and interviews show the vast majority of sites have not even been studied to assess the pollution, let alone been touched. While millions live in the affected Delta region, the pollution disproportionately hurts the poor and immigrants who rely on local fish as part of their diet, according to a study conducted by University of California, Davis ecologist Fraser Shilling. His research found that 100,000 people, which he calls a conservative estimate, regularly eat tainted fish at levels deemed unsafe by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. “Tens of thousands of subsistence anglers and their (families) are consuming greater than 10 times the U.S. EPA recommended dose of mercury, which puts them at immediate risk of neurological and other harm,” Shilling said. But neither the state nor federal government has studied long-term health effects of mercury on the people who regularly eat fish from these waters. The legacy of more than a century of mercury mining in California — which produced more of the silvery metal than anywhere else in the nation — harms people and the environment in myriad ways.

Near a derelict mine in this California ghost town, the water bubbling in a stream runs Day-Glo Orange and is devoid of life, carrying mercury toward a wildlife refuge and a popular fishing spot. “It’s really hard living up here,” said Kate Woods, 51, standing on a wooden bridge in front of her rural home, tucked amid the hills and cattle ranches just downstream of the mine.“It would be paradise here but for this damned orange creek.” Far to the north, American Indians who live atop mine waste on the shores of one of the world’s most mercurypolluted lakes have elevated levels of the heavy metal in their bodies and fears about their health. Other mercury mines are the biggest sources of the pollution in San Francisco Bay and the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, the largest estuary on the Pacific Coast. In all, this metal known as quicksilver has contaminated thousands of square miles of water and land in the northern half of the state. Mercury is considered most harmful to people when consumed in fish. The toxin is less of a threat in drinking water, which is filtered and monitored more closely. “Mercury tops the list as the most harmful invisible pollutant in the (state’s) watershed,” said Sejal Choksi of San Francisco Baykeeper, an environmental watchdog group for the bay. “It has such widespread impacts, and the regulatory agencies are just throwing up their hands.” “There’s probably a water body near everybody in the state that has significant mercury contamination,” said Dr. Rick Kreutzer, chief of the state Department of Public Health’s Division of Environmental and Occupational Disease Control.

University of Arizona Police Department officers responded to the intersection of Warren Avenue and Hawthorne Street on Sept. 11 at 1:16 a.m. in reference to a report that an unknown male was carrying a possibly unconscious female. Upon arrival, officers made contact with the male who told police he was carrying the woman because she was intoxicated and had no one else to help her get home safely. Officers were able to identify the woman using a California drivers license that placed the woman’s age at 23. Officers asked the woman where she was from, to which she replied, “California.” Officers then asked her what city she was from, to which she replied, “Phoenix.” Officers then tried to confirm the woman’s address as “Phoenix, California,” to which she replied, “Arizona.” Police were eventually able to confirm the woman’s real age and subsequently cited her on charges of minor in possession and possession of a fake ID. The woman’s ID was taken into evidence and the incident was referred to the Dean of Students Office. The woman was transported to Kappa Kappa Gamma, where she was released.

UAPD officers were dispatched to the Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall on Sept. 11 at 3:14 a.m. in reference to an unconscious and intoxicated male student. Upon arrival, officers met with medical personnel from the Tucson Fire Department and attempted to locate the unconscious man. He was eventually found near the northeast entrance of the residence hall, lying on his stomach in a puddle of his own vomit. Officers and medical personnel were able to make contact with the man and attempted several times to bring him back to consciousness using smelling salts. Officers succeeded in waking the man three times, but all three times the man vomited and passed back into unconsciousness. TFD eventually transported the man to University Medical Center where he was treated for extreme intoxication. UAPD cited the student on charges of minor in possession and released him to the custody of hospital authorities.

Upset boyfriend planned to jump from parking garage

UAPD officers responded to the Sixth Street Parking Garage on Sept. 11 at 3:50 a.m. in reference to the activation of an emergency call box on the third floor of the garage. Upon arrival, officers made contact with a female who told police that she had activated the call box because her boyfriend had claimed he was going to jump off of the garage. According to the woman, she had been arguing with her boyfriend when he became upset and threatened to throw himself off of the garage. She also became upset and began to walk away but called police because she was concerned for the man’s safety. Officers were able to locate the man, who agreed to accompany police to the UAPD station on Campbell Avenue. Once at the station, police were able to calm the man down to the point where he was no longer deemed a threat to himself. According to the man, he and his girlfriend often had arguments and sometimes he threatened to hurt himself, but he had no intention of actually causing injury to himself. Officers released the man to the custody of his girlfriend.

UAPD officers were dispatched to UMC on Sept. 11 at 8:46 p.m. in reference to reports of an assault. Upon arrival, officers met with a CatTran shuttle driver who was receiving medical attention for injuries sustained during an alleged attack. According to the shuttle driver, at approximately 8:30 p.m. he was attempting to pick up passengers at the assigned CatTran shuttle stop outside of the Coronado Residence Hall. A yellow taxi was parked right in front of the shuttle stop and approximately 12 women were gathered around it. The shuttle driver told police he got out to ask the taxi driver to move his car. When he did so, the taxi driver became hostile and began yelling obscenities. The shuttle driver then attempted to walk back to his shuttle but the taxi driver followed him. The taxi driver then began to bump his chest into the shuttle driver, who again tried to return to his shuttle. As he turned his back for the last time, the taxi driver punched him on the back of the head. The shuttle driver attempted to strike the taxi driver two or three times, but was unsuccessful. Officers were able to locate the taxi driver, who gave a slightly different story. According to the taxi driver, the shuttle driver was the one who was hostile and yelling obscenities. The taxi driver admitted to striking the shuttle driver who he said kept throwing punches at him. Police cited both men on charges of disorderly conduct for fighting. Both men were released pending judicial proceedings.

Podcast: The Daily Iowan previews Arizona vs. Iowa on

’Cats ready for Iowa clash


Kevin Zimmerman Sports Editor 520.626.2956


Keys for an Iowa victory Who to watch when the Hawkeyes are on offense:

Mike Christy/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Senior safety Cam Nelson, left, and cornerback Devin Ross, right, drill an NAU player during Arizona’s 34-17 win over the Lumberjacks. The Wildcats head to Iowa City, Iowa, for a Saturday showdown with Big Ten power Iowa, the alma mater of head coach Mike Stoops and defensive coordinator Mark Stoops.

Players to Watch for Arizona:

Nic Grigsby — running back, 5-foot-10, 190 pounds, junior — When he gets a full head of steam, he’s a tough back to stop. Just ask NAU or Central Michigan. If Grigsby rips off a few big runs early, that will force the Iowa defense to commit more people to the run. That would also open up Arizona’s passing game. Another big game by Grigsby should translate into a Wildcat win. Brooks Reed — defensive end, 6-foot-3, 255 pounds, junior — Reed has a motor that won’t stop and is one of the leaders on the Arizona defense. Central Michigan used lots of screen and shovel passes to try and slow down Reed and the UA pass rush. If Reed can be a disruptive force at the line of scrimmage, the Hawkeyes will have a hard time moving the ball, whether it’s on the ground or through the air.

Keys for the UA:

1. Play well early — This will be the Wildcats’ first road game, and they can’t afford to let a hostile crowd of 70,000-plus get into the game. By using ball-control offense and a swarming defense to set the tone for the rest of the game, Arizona could nullify Hawkeyes’ home-field advantage.

2. Limit turnovers — Arizona has a young player in Matt Scott leading the offense, and securing the football will be important in helping Scott keep up his confidence during a tough road test. If the Wildcats hold onto the football and don’t give Iowa extra possessions Arizona’s chances at winning in Iowa City should increase dramatically. 3. Attitude — The first step to winning games on the road is believing it can be done, and this year’s UA team has a swagger about it that’s been missing in year’s past. If the Wildcats go into the game confident in their abilities — without being cocky — then they could be 3-0 when they return to Tucson.

They Said It Sophomore quarterback Matt Scott “I was watching film (early in the week) and I was already getting anxious just sitting there watching film. I just can’t wait to get there and play in that stadium. It’s a big game for us and it’ll be the first time in a while that, if we win, that we’ll be 3-0 and I want to make that happen.” — compiled by Brian Kimball

Offensive injuries for Arizona, Iowa add intrigue to toughest game yet By Brian Kimball ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Early season games typically serve as a litmus test for college football teams. The first few games are akin to warm-ups — see Arizona’s game against NAU last weekend — so teams aren’t rusty for the tougher portions of the schedule. When the Arizona football team takes on Iowa Saturday afternoon in Iowa City, Iowa will officially mark the end of the Wildcats’ easier portion of the season. Iowa (2-0) started the 2009 season as the No. 22 team in The Associated Press top-25 poll, but a lackluster 17-16 home win against Northern Iowa — formerly a Division I-AA team — dropped the Hawkeyes out of the national rankings. Last week’s 35-3 beat down against Iowa State — on the road — should be the type of effort the Wildcats will see at 2:35 p.m. central time (12:35 p.m. Arizona time) on

Saturday at Kinnick Stadium. “We know what we’ve got to do, and our kids are excited about the opportunity,”said UA head coach Mike Stoops.“We know it’s a big challenge, but this team has been built for this and I feel good about their preparation throughout the week.” But the Wildcats were dealt a blow Wednesday afternoon when Stoops announced that tight end Rob Gronkowski wouldn’t play against Iowa as he continues to nurse a nagging back injury. In a game that UA coaches expect to be a physical and closely contested affair, the loss of a big-play threat like Gronkowski could hamper Arizona’s offense. Luckily for Arizona, however, redshirt junior A.J. Simmons has been a pleasant surprise during Gronkowski’s time away from the practice field — a hiatus that started in early August. “A.J. has done a great job for us. He got a PREVIEW, page 8

Running attack is Iowa’s MO Hawkeyes looking for balanced offense against Arizona By Bobby Stover ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz will face off against his former pupil, Arizona head coach Mike Stoops, this Saturday. However, the Wildcats’ offense may seem familiar as both teams center their attack around the run. So far this season, Arizona (2-0) has found tremendous success with the ground game, outrushing its opponents 611 total yards to 141 and outscoring them four touchdowns to one. Meanwhile, the Hawkeyes (2-0) have historically been known for their running game and are currently hurting opponents with nearly 140 yards of rushing in each of their first two wins. However, with two first-year backs as Iowa’s primary rushing threat, Ferentz is hoping his team will not have to rely too heavily on its running game.

“We have some very capable running backs in our backfield right now,”Ferentz said in his press conference Tuesday.“But the idea is to score points and we have to find other ways to move the football. I am hopeful that our passing game will be better than it was last year — more efficient and more effective.” In charge of maintaining this type of passing game is quarterback Ricky Stanzi. Through Iowa’s first two games, the junior threw for five touchdowns with a passing percentage of 58.8 and throwing just two interceptions. Stanzi is in his second year as the Hawkeyes’ primary quarterback and is looking to improve on his sophomore year in which he finished with 14 touchdown passes and nine interceptions while leading Iowa to 9-4 overall record — good for fourth in the Big Ten Conference. The junior has a multitude of weapons to throw to including receiver

Trey Stross and senior tight end Tony Moeaki. Stross has emerged as Iowa’s big-play threat early on amassing 130 yards on just seven catches. Meanwhile Moeaki — at 6-foot-4, 250-pounds — has drawn comparisons to Arizona tight end Rob Gronkowski. The senior has caught 11 passes for 87 yards, including a touchdown catch for the decisive score in the Hawkeyes’ week-one win over Northern Iowa. Despite their offensive weapons, Iowa has proven a slow-starting team through the first two games, scoring only 17 of its total 52 points in the first half. “We need to come out sharper (offensively), we really do,” Ferentz said. “We’re working on that. The way my mind works is we just have to practice better. I think usually what you do in practice carries over to the game field.” Defensively, Iowa could cause headaches for Stoops and his young

quarterback Matt Scott. The Hawkeyes have collected five interceptions in just two games and have limited opponents’ rushing attacks to 137 yards per game. The catalysts of the defensive unit are defensive backs Tyler Sash and Brett Greenwood, both of whom combine to account for all of Iowa’s five interceptions. The pair of talented sophomores also lead the team in tackles as Sash and Greenwood each have 20 and 18, respectively. For an Arizona offense that has yet to see a true defensive test, the Hawkeyes’ stingy defense, along with what is expected to be a raucous crowd Saturday — Kinnick Stadium averaged an over 99 percent capacity-filled crowd in 2008 — will surely make for a tight contest. “They have several guys playing very well for them, especially their running backs.,” Ferentz said.“But I feel we’ve got a strong defense as well.” “(Arizona) ought to be a great football team. We’re going to have to step it up this week for sure.”

Quarterback Ricky Stanzi, No. 12, junior — For some strange reason, Stanzi has had a hard time finding a rhythm under center. In Iowa’s first two games, the junior went a combined 18for-37 passing for 180 yards and two touchdowns during the opening 30 minutes. After halftime, though, he’s gone 22-for32, wracking up Ryan Young 259 yards. sports editor Wide receiver The Daily Iowan Derrell JohnsonKoulianos, No. 15, junior — After leading the Iowa receiving corps in 2008 with 44 catches for 639 yards and three touchdowns. Now, he’s listed as a back-up but has still tallied 61 yards on four receptions and found the end zone once. He’s also been crucial in third-down situations. Running back Adam Robinson, No. 32, freshman — With sophomore Jewel Hampton out for the entire season, head coach Kirk Ferentz has sifted through running backs like a 19th-century California prospector. Fortunately, Robinson has been an adept replacement (132 yards on 27 carries).

Who to watch when the Hawkeyes are on defense:

Defensive back, Tyler Sash, No. 9, sophomore — In only his second year as a starter, Sash has accomplished a lot during the Hawkeyes first two games. The sophomore from Oskaloose, Iowa, has posted 20 total tackles — 11 solo and nine assisted. He also tied a school record for interceptions in a game with three against Iowa State last weekend. Linebacker, Jeremiha Hunter, No. 42, junior — Hunter was integral to Iowa’s 17-16 win over Football Championship Series team Northern Iowa two weeks ago, blocking the Panthers’ last-second field goal attempt. He also has a recovered fumble to his name. Linebacker, A.J. Edds, No. 49, senior — The Hawkeyes call him Dr. Edds, but the management major and academic all-Big Ten honoree knows a thing or two about football as well. Edds had two sacks for 15 total yards lost, recovered two fumbles, and notched a safety in 2008.

Keys on offense:

1. Intermix the passing and running game. Stanzi needs to be in control, especially since Iowa’s running backs are greener than the new Kinnick Stadium field turf. 2. Don’t hog the pigskin. The Iowa receivers may boast more talent than experience, but they are sure-handed wide outs. 3. Light up the board early and often. The notion goes without saying, but the Iowa offense moved at a worm’s pace during the open half against Iowa State.

Keys on defense:

1. Continue to guard against the pass. When the Hawkeyes went to Ames, Iowa, to face their intra-state rival, Sash and fellow safety Brett Greenwood went duck hunting, reeling in five interceptions. 2. Force open the floodgates. The Hawkeyes don’t blitz very often and with only two sacks and eight tackles for loss, it’s apparent. 3. Create turnovers. Arizona better get a grip because Iowa has recorded three forced fumbles so far.

Volleyball hosts home invite By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The No. 21 Arizona Wildcat volleyball team looks to remain perfect on the year as they host the Arizona Invitational this weekend. The tournament, which includes Tulane, New Mexico and UTEP, is Arizona’s (8-0) last test before they open Pacific 10 Conference play against USC and UCLA. So far this season, the Wildcats have won every match, and only dropped two sets. The Wildcats open competition against the Tulane Green Wave (3-3). Although both programs have a rich volleyball traColin Darland/Arizona Daily Wildcat dition — Tulane’s program beginning in Sophomore outside hitter Dana Hutchinson dives for a volleyball during a Sept. 12 practice. Host- 1975 and Arizona’s in 1977 — the two ing the Arizona Invitational this weekend, the Wildcats hope to fix their inconsistencies. programs have never met.

“It should be a pretty tough tournament,” head coach Dave Rubio said. “Tulane traditionally has been very good. They have a couple of foreign kids that are outstanding.” The Wildcats will face the Green Wave at 11 a.m. on Saturday before matching up against the New Mexico Lobos (7-1) in the nightcap. Arizona will finish with a morning match against UTEP on Sunday to round out the weekend. The Wildcats defeated the Lobos earlier this year in Louisville, Ky. History sides with the Wildcats as they hold the advantage over New Mexico 8-5 all time. UTEP (7-3) is unfamiliar to the Wildcats — the two schools have not met since the 1999 season opener, when

Arizona defeated the Miners 3-0. While the preparation for the Pac-10 season is the ultimate goal, Arizona can’t get ahead of itself. Both Tulane and New Mexico are talented NCAA Tournament teams. “I don’t want to get too far ahead,” Rubio said. “Right now we need to stay focused on the next match.” The Wildcats will have to elevate their level of play at home without junior outside hitter Whitney Dosty, who is sidelined with a hand injury. Although the Wildcats won the Wildcat Classic tournament they hosted two weekends ago, Rubio was not pleased with the way they won. He hopes the Wildcats show a similar high-level of play that they have shown on the road at home inside of McKale Center.

Arizona vs. Iowa Kinnick Stadium is going to be rocking Saturday — mostly because, well, what the hell else is there to do in Iowa on a Saturday afternoon? I would say this is going to be a factor, but thanks to Mike Stoops’ heads-up thinking to play crowd noise and Iowa fight songs during Arizona’s practices this week, the Wildcats are already adapted for the Hawkeye’s home turf. Regardless of its effectiveness, Arizona does have a fair chance in what should be a tight battle. Arizona 20, Iowa 17

Yo Mike Stoops, I’m really happy for your return to your old stomping grounds and I’mma let you finish, but the Iowa defense and rowdy crowd will overcome your young quarterback and hold the UA run game enough to squeeze out a victory. Sure, Iowa has injuries on their offense, but the learning curve is too great for the Wildcats own offense to figure out how to beat a talented Hawkeye defense. Iowa 27, Arizona 24

This is going to be a serious test for the Wildcats. If Arizona had junior tight end Rob Gronkowski playing, then it would have a legitimate chance at not only winning this game but being a favorite. But since he’s out, and the passing game is still raw, it doesn’t seem like the Wildcats will be able to handle the smash-mouth style of football that Iowa plays, nor will they be able to overcome the raucous crowd at Kinnick Stadium. Or the pink locker rooms. Iowa 20, Arizona 13

No. 19 Nebraska vs. No. 13 Virginia Tech Growing up in Colorado, there’s two football teams you learn to despise more than any other: the Raiders and the Cornhuskers. Now, even though Colorado — Nebraska’s arch-rival according to people from Boulder Country — has all but completely fallen off the map the last couple years, my biases have remained fully intact. Plus, with this being the month which Michael Vick returns to the game of football, the stars are all aligned for a Hokie victory. Virginia Tech 54, Nebraska 42

Yo Virginia Tech quarterback Tyrod Taylor, I’m really happy you have got some wheels and can scoot around in the backfield and I’mma let you finish, but a 50 percent completion average is not going to fly against the Cornhuskers. Nebraska can rack up yardage through the air behind quarterback Zac Lee and on the ground with Roy Helu Jr., but the Hokies are too one-dimensional to compete. Nebraska 35, Virginia tech 17

It’s rare that a team can have a player who not only has one of the coolest names ever, but is also suave — especially for a defensive tackle. Then you add in the fact that he might be the best defensive lineman in the country? Wow. If you aren’t on the Ndamukong Suh bandwagon yet, then hop on and join me. He’s going to shut down the Hokies on his own. Nebraska 23, Virginia Tech 9

No. 18 Utah vs. Oregon Last season the Mountain West Conference won six of seven against Pac-10 opponents. But this year with Oregon’s new smash mouth — pun intended (Google ‘LeGarrette Blount’ if confused) — style of play, the contest could be tilted toward the Pac-10’s favor. That is assuming no Ducks players follow in the footsteps of Blount and their beloved mascot and open that refreshing can of whoopass on a Utah player at any point during the game. Utah 24, Oregon 21 (Three Oregon players suspended for fighting)

Yo Oregon head coach Chip Kelly, I know you’re an offensive genius and I’mma let you finish, but Utah had the best upset of the Bowl Championship Series of all time. The best BCS upset of all time! OK, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but the Utes are still pretty darn good. Oregon, meanwhile, needs to reshape last season’s success, not to mention its image. Utah 28, Oregon 24

They started off as one of the most hyped teams in the nation, but Oregon is in a bad place right now. New coach and an absent passing game — and everyone knows what happened with their running back. Under normal circumstances this is an easy win for the Ducks, but they’ll be grounded again by another mid-major team, opening up the middle of the Pac-10. Utah 27, Oregon 21

Soccer hopes to bounce back

Sophomore forward Renae Cuellar weaves around a Rutgers player last Sunday in a 3-0 loss. The Arizona squad again plays a ranked team, this time against the No. 18 BYU Cougars Saturday.

After a shutout against Rutgers, UA hopes to get back on track By Vincent Balistreri Arizona Daily Wildcat Arizona soccer head coach Dan Tobias heard how much faster Rutgers University is compared to his team after Sunday’s 3-0 shutout to the Scarlett Knights, but after watching film this week, he insisted that was not the case. “They were in better position, on their toes, and they were anticipating rather than reacting,”Tobias said.“We usually do those things, we usually do, but we didn’t on Sunday.” Arizona (2-4-1) must forget about its failures against Rutgers and focus on another talented team in No. 18 Brigham

Young University, whom they will host on Saturday at Mulcahy stadium at 7 p.m. The Cougars have had great success against the Wildcats as they lead the all-time series 6-3. Last year, Arizona suffered at 1-0 loss at the hands of BYU on the road in Provo, Utah. The game being in Tucson may make a slight difference considering that BYU is 11-1-1 in their last 13 games in Provo. “We know from playing them last year that they’re going to come out extremely aggressive on us, as they always have,” said sophomore Renae Cuellar. “At the same time, it’s a good thing we’re not playing at BYU because it makes a difference.” After struggling with a talented team such

as Rutgers, the Wildcats feel that the game can help them know what to expect from other talented teams down the line. “As a team, Rutgers surprised us. They came out faster and stronger, so that put us on our toes to know that there is better competition out there,” said Cuellar. After a week of working on playing quicker and under pressure, Tobias is confident that his team has prepared well enough to be ready to bounce back Saturday night. “We’re still a young group, but I think we have the right mentality,”he said.“A lot of the concerns that the team had have been eliminated, and we’ve had a week of good preparation to be ready for the game.”

With Gronkowski out, Scott remains confident

million reps in camp,” said UA offensive coordinator Sonny Dykes.“We’ve worked him into the ground, but I think that’s been beneficial for him. He’s gotten better and improved.” Simmons likely won’t be the focal point of Arizona’s offensive attack. That burden will fall on the Wildcat’s running game, led by junior Nic Grigsby. Grigsby is currently second in the nation in rushing yards per game (162.5 yards per game) according to The play from the Wildcats’ tailback has given sophomore quarterback Matt Scott some relief during his first two collegiate starts, and another heavy dose of Grigsby could be the key to helping Arizona get three wins before the calendar flips to October for the first time since the 2002 season. “I feel pretty comfortable. (Grigsby) and Keola (Antolin) both run the ball very well and it takes a lot of stress off of me,” Scott said. “We’re going have to pick up the pass game a little bit and we’ll do that on Saturday.” Arizona will also need to pick up the intensity on defense. The group admittedly lacked focus during the team’s 34-17 win against NAU last weekend at Arizona Stadium, but anything less than the Wild-

cats’ best effort likely won’t be good enough to earn a road win against a gritty Hawkeye team. “They’ve got some big hogmollies up front so I think they’re going to try and overpower us,” said senior safety Cam Nelson. “I think we’ve just got to try and use our speed … They have some good athletes, but I think overall we have more team speed. I think that’s what’s going to get us through the game.” And while the Big Ten Conference might have a reputation for being slow and not having many quality players, Arizona players and coaches said that couldn’t be further from the truth. If the Wildcats want to be a program that regularly competes for a berth in bowl games, the best way to prove they’re ready to take that step is by winning Saturday in Iowa City. And they know it. “Pac-10 versus the Big Ten, you know it’s going to be a good game. We’ve got to show people that we can do a lot more than what we did last year,” Scott said. “We need to get above that, and beating (Iowa) would be a great accomplishment for this team.”

Sports Previews Cross-country hosts invite

Head cross-country coach James Li and his Arizona teams will host the Dave Murray Invitational today, the only meet in Tucson during the team’s 2009 schedule. Both the men’s and women’s teams will visit the Dell Urich Golf Course, 600 S. Alvernon Way, taking on Pacific 10 Conference foes UCLA and ASU, along with Pima and Mesa Community Colleges. Unlike the meet in Flagstaff, Ariz., two weeks ago, Li said his entire team will compete, barring injuries, which he said they will be “conservative” in handling. “I’m really going to be looking forward to Mo (Mohamud) Ige,”Li said of runners to watch.“He’s going to (have) a significant impact.” For the women, Li said senior Maggie Callahan, Hannah Henson and Hanna Moen will be amongst the leaders for the Wildcats. The distances at the golf course will be increased 1,000 meters from last year, making the men’s course a 7,000-meter race and the women’s a 6,000m course, Li said. “It’s completely grass, there’s no major hills but there’s a lot of bumps,”he said of the team’s home course.

Men’s tennis pulls out

The Arizona Wildcat men’s tennis team has pulled out of competition at this weekend’s Costa

Mesa Futures tournament in Costa Mesa, Calif., due to a flu bug and “unfulfilled” entry requirements, assistant coach Tom Lloyd said. The failed entry requirements were not disciplinary issues, Lloyd said. Head coach Tad Berkowitz added that during the fall tournaments, which are simply for individual improvement and are not collegiate events, the players work on their off-season improvements. “We were trying to wait (the flu) out as long as we could,” Berkowitz said of the decision to pull out.“We decided it was best to rest up.”

Miners host Women’s tennis

Opening their season in Las Cruces, N.M., three Arizona players will represent the Arizona women’s tennis team, today through Sunday. Senior Ariane Masschelein, sophomore Debora Castany and freshman Shannon Cassidy head to their first match of the fall season against a number of small-school teams including New Mexico State, Our Lady of the Lake and host University of Texas El Paso. “We are excited to get some competition underway,” head coach Vicky Maes said through the athletic department.“We only had a few weeks to prepare, but practice has gone well, and I feel we are ready to go and put our games into play.” — Kevin Zimmerman

Sparring grounds

Casey Sapio/Arizona Daily Wildcat

To the left, black belt Kurt Fluck (left) and instructor Kenny Ho (right) practice sparring at the UA recreation center to prepare for an upcoming taekwondo tournament. At right, black belt Jessica Cox (left) throws a kick in Fluckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s direction.

Tucson Convention Center to house regional America Taekwondo Association tournament By Tyler Kurbat Arizona Daily Wildcat Six UA martial artists look to highlight Wildcat prowess as the American Taekwondo Association commences its Arizona Regional Tournament this Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a really good reputation for high performance,â&#x20AC;? said American Taekwondo Club of Arizona Treasurer Heidi Lyons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the only university club in the country, and we try to represent.â&#x20AC;? Lyons and her fellow club members will represent the UA in the showdown that begins 9 a.m. Saturday at the Tucson Convention Center. Awards are given on an individual performance basis, but the club is heading into competition with a team state of mind. Last season, the club won 43 medals and five

state champion titles. Comparable to a gymnastics meet with different events and judges, the taekwondo tournament will showcase a variety of martial arts skills and packages. Competitions include traditional forms and traditional weapons, in which participants demonstrate pre-set, standardized routines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are also other extreme events like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;extreme formsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;extreme weaponsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, and finally some new â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;creative eventsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; which are in-between the extreme and traditional for people that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do the flips and flashy stuff, but (who) still want to go outside the box,â&#x20AC;? Lyons said. Taekwondo has typically surrounded the â&#x20AC;&#x153;traditionalâ&#x20AC;? aspects, instructor Kenny Ho explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the traditional forms are really actually quite pretty,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other people like

sparring for the partner interaction and different things coming at you, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still a fan of the precision forms.â&#x20AC;? With the exception of sparring, each event is evaluated by a set of three judges consisting of a hand, foot and center judge. The competitors are scored on things such as form, attitude, presentation and appearance based on a one-to-nine point scale. Sparring is judged on a contact system. Connections to different parts of the body are awarded different point values. The American Taekwondo Club of Arizona Wildcats feel they are more than prepared to catch the judgesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eyes. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;extremeâ&#x20AC;? side of the competition entails martial arts â&#x20AC;&#x153;trickingâ&#x20AC;? with stylish flips and combos. Club President Simon Domsky will be

demonstrating extreme weapons on behalf of Arizona. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be doing gymnastics spins, flips and tricks,â&#x20AC;? Domsky said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t typically considered â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;traditional taekwondo.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I enjoy being able to achieve that level of perfection but still pushing myself to achieve the tricks that are not commonly seen in taekwondo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The weapons aspect just adds more attitude and a performance base,â&#x20AC;? he added. Ho said he feels very confident in his studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; capabilities, as they have been fine-tuning their skills all summer, and is hoping to show them off in true Wildcat fashion. Throwing in a live audience and fan interaction adds to his hopes for a solid outing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot more fun,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sparring is great with a lot of people, and the extremes are a lot of fun with the people clapping along and screaming and cheering.â&#x20AC;?

Miami defense steps up to challenge at home McClatchy Newspapers MIAMI â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Eleven young men stood up Thursday night before a watching nation, raised hands and volunteered that the University of Miami football team is not all about emerging star quarterback Jacory Harris, after all. Behold, the Hurricanes have a defense. Eleven players rose up as one and resolved not to be embarrassed in their own house the way this very same opponent had crushed and humiliated Miamiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense so thoroughly late last season. This was the litmus test for this Canesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense and, in a very real way, for this young season unfurling with such splendid promise. No. 20 Miami passed that test in its home opener, and the flying colors were orange jerseys swarming all over No. 14 Georgia Techâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vaunted rushing attack. UM used this measuring stick as a hickory switch on its Atlantic Coast

Conference rival and former nemesis 33-17 before more than 45,000 revelers and a national ESPN audience. All the preseason and early season chatter surrounding UM had been about the sophomore Harris, or the quarterbacks who transferred, or the changes and outlook under new offensive coordinator Mark Whipple. The defense has operated relatively under-radar under its equally new coordinator, John Lovett. The 34 points and 294 passing yards given to Florida State in the season opener surely did not testify to the defenseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall quality, but any concerns were merrily set aside by Miamiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dramatic victory and Harrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; overriding aerial show. Thursday night, the onus swung onto that Canesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; D. Anyone who recalls the nightmare at Bobby Dodd Stadium last Nov. 20 winces to remember a 41-23 loss in which the Yellow Jacketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x153;triple optionâ&#x20AC;?

offense battered UM for 472 rushing yards â&#x20AC;&#x201D; second most ever given up by any Canes team since the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beginning in 1926. This time, the running wild was downgraded to running mild. Forty-one points allowed shrunk to 17, four rushing touchdowns became only one, and 472 rushing yards allowed turned into a mere 95. Last year, Techâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jonathan Dwyer alone danced through UM for 128 yards on only 10 carries. This time, Dwyer gained 7 yards on five carries before being pummeled out of the game by a shoulder injury. The key was Miamiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defensive line, buoyed by the return of Eric Moncur, penetrating to harass QB Josh Nesbitt and disrupt his option. Senior middle linebacker Darryl Sharpton had a big night as well. UM coach Randy Shannon saw this game as an early turning point for his team and season, with reason. Georgia

Tech had won four games in a row against Miami. A victory here, atop the thriller in Tally, would have the Canes 2-0, steaming up the national polls, and feeling like nobody on the schedule could beat them â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and that includes Virginia Tech and Oklahoma up next. All of that good feeling â&#x20AC;&#x201D; UM opening with two wins over ranked teams for the first time since 1988 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; depended on Miami doing Thursday precisely what it could not last time: Stop the run, and win on the defensive side. UM finagled the early-season schedule a bit to help make sure that happened. Miami would only agree to open against FSU on Labor Day if the ACC would schedule the Canesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; second game for the following Thursday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; meaning extra time to prepare for Virginia Tech. Which meant preparing to stop that running attack. Consider that extra time well-spent. The night was a triumph for Lovett,

58, the new defensive boss. He is a career journeyman, with 11 previous college stops before Miami on a winding 32-year resume. Maybe Thursday night finally felt like home for him. The way this game was won as much as the win itself had to be especially pleasing to Shannon as well, considering he was a Canes linebacker (a very, very good one) back in the day, and later a defensive coach. Stopping the other guy is in Shannonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bones as a football guy. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see nearly enough of that last season or in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opener. This time, he got enough. It was not a perfect defensive effort (although it was close until a late 56-yard Tech touchdown pass), but it was near enough to offer the notion Miami might be fairly balanced, after all, able to win, perhaps, even on occasions when Jacory Harris might leave the Superman suit back in his dorm room.
