New regent sees issues, opportunity By Brenna Goth DAILY WILDCAT
Regent Designee Jay Heiler was announced as the newest member of the Arizona Board of Regents earlier this month. Heiler worked developing policy in the Arizona state government and is the founder and chairman of the board of the Great Hearts Academies, a charter school network in Phoenix. Heiler will replace current regents board chair Fred DuVal in January 2012. Daily Wildcat: Why were you interested in becoming a regent?

Student app development company continues to grow By Amer Taleb DAILY WILDCAT
There is only one iPhone app development company in Tucson, and it belongs to two UA students. Tom Smallwood and Cody Jorgensen, computer science seniors who met in a software development club, founded Objective Coders LLC in 2010. They’ve been offered a $30,000 contract for an app, received job interview requests from Facebook and designed an application that reached No. 56 in the Mac App Store. They develop apps for both Apple and Android devices. Besides keeping up with classes and running the company, the two also have other jobs. “Time is everything,” Smallwood said. “Finding the time to work on the apps is harder than making them. Thank God we’re graduating in December.” They’ll graduate at the end of the semester, but Jorgensen said they hope their connection to the UA stays strong. They partnered last year with Phyllis Brodsky, program coordinator for the UA’s Project FOCUS, an effort to support academic success and access to campus life for post-secondary students with intellectual disabilities, and developed her iDress for Weather app. Brodsky’s app helps people with cognitive disabilities decide what they should wear based on the weather. After seeing an animation of the weather, users slide the screen and a closet pops up with a recommended outfit.
Brodsky, who has worked in the special education field for more than 25 years, said she was apprehensive about having students develop her app. “If I can utilize resources within the university and give students a chance to do anything, I always will,” Brodsky said. “But reality is it’s kind of a business.” She said their attention to detail and commitment to finish the project gave her the confidence to work with them. Brodsky said the app has been an enormous success, mainly because of the people with disabilities that benefit from it. She’s currently working with Objective Coders on another app. Additionally, the Arizona State Museum hired Smallwood and Jorgensen to develop an educational comic on diabetes for children on reservations with the disease. Jorgensen said many people on the reservation have iPads and iPhones, making this an effective way to reach them. The museum is incorporating the app into one of its projects. Smallwood said they’re talking with two different UA departments about developing their apps. Smallwood and Jorgensen help Patrick Homer, a senior lecturer in the Department of Computer Science, teach a development class for Apple’s mobile operating system. Just as impressive as starting a successful company is the amount of work they put into it, Homer said. They didn’t

receive help from professors or a class and there were very few books on app development when they started. They had to learn everything out of a beginning iPhone development book on their own time, Smallwood said. “The only help we got was asking other developers on forums,” he added. “At the time, no one at the UA was familiar with making apps.” Now they have enough money to start hiring other students. They plan on hiring two to three part-time student employees by January, Smallwood said.
“CS (computer science) students intern at a big company and there’s no way to make an impact,” Jorgensen said. “You might go to Microsoft and the only thing you do is work on the ‘Help’ menu. That’s your full-time job. Nobody knows you exist when you’re an employee at Microsoft or Facebook.” Smallwood also said students can see the results of their work. “Whereas if they interned at Apple, it would be ‘I wrote some code, but I can’t tell you what I did exactly.’ You might build something and never get to see it.” As they expand, Objective Coders would like to hire more students, fund a software development club and offer weekend workshops on app development. Saumya Debray, interim department head of computer science, said as technology and computers become more integrated into society, Smallwood and Jorgensen will continue to find opportunities to succeed. “This is where we got started and we give a lot of credit back to the UA,” Smallwood said. “We’d like to continue to develop applications for other departments and the university as a whole. And we hope the CS department takes notice that mobile applications are a great area to get into. Students should be excited about it. There’s a lot of fun, money and opportunities in app development.”
Jay Heiler: I was interested because I really believe the state university system is right up there with key institutions of Arizona serving people of the state well, attracting talent and for simply providing a college education solution to people raising families. In tandem with the K through 12 system, they Jay Heiler have more to Regent Designee do with the arc of Arizona’s future than anything else. It’s a lot of work to be a member. It’s a long 8-year appointment. But to me, there’s no more important work. What do you think are some of the main challenges facing the Arizona university system? There is a list of big challenges. They have to figure out a way to secure sustained funding support into the future that allows them to execute their mission. They need to refine the mission in terms of each university itself and what it seeks to be truly excellent in and how all three will operate together, collectively. And then there’s always the challenge of change. They are all going to have to effectively manage change. In my view, if it’s not broken, fix it anyway. Constantly improve, try to get better every year. Strive to do what you do with a higher level of excellence. It’s hard for any institution, especially hard for large institutions. What perspective or viewpoints do you bring to the board? Some of them arise from my experience, most notably is that I would like to make the university system more actively involved in continuing to improve our K through 12 education system throughout the state. There could be some really good synergy there. I don’t want to begin with any concrete, unmovable ideas regarding how to do that, but I plan on working with university leaders during next few years on that. Universities
Department moves on after Drake’s death By Savannah Martin DAILY WILDCAT
Michael Drake made substantial contributions to the study of planetary sciences at the UA, leaving behind a legacy that will propel the program forward for years to come. Drake, who was the head of the Department of Planetary Sciences and director of the UA Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, died at 65 last Wednesday at the University Medical Center-University Campus. In his nearly 40 years at the university, Drake was involved in multiple facets of the planetary sciences program. On top of directing the laboratory and heading his department, Drake mentored graduate students, taught general education courses and conducted critical research. Drake also led the OSIRIS-REx mission, a project that received

The OSIRIS-REx mission will land a probe on an asteroid in 2016 and return with samples in 2023. Dante Lauretta, an associate professor of cosmochemistry, has taken over as the principal investigator for the project. Lauretta said Drake was aware that he might not see the mission’s completion and made sure Lauretta and his team could continue OSIRIS-REx in his absence.

effectiveness of its faculty. According to Swindle, Drake laid a foundation for the department’s excellence. “Part of his lasting legacy is the strength he gave this department,” he said. According to Joaquin Ruiz, executive dean of the Colleges of Letters, Arts and Science, the UA has established a committee to find a replacement department head and is hoping to appoint a current member of the university. Drake left the department, the laboratory and the OSIRIS-REx mission in good hands, Ruiz said. According to several of his colleagues, Drake was known for his outstanding leadership, his persistent optimism and his unwavering commitment to the planetary sciences program. “He always kept the best interest of the department and the university at heart,” Gardner-Vandy said.
Doing what was best for the university meant Drake was honest, sometimes blunt, she added. According to Gardner-Vandy, Drake voiced his opinions without hesitation and never let a problem go unnoticed. “He wouldn’t leave any elephants in the room,” she said. As a teacher, many of Drake’s colleagues said he was approachable and encouraging, constantly challenging both undergraduate and graduate students to be the best they could. “He believed his students could learn,” Swindle said, “and he wanted them to learn.” According to Lauretta, the Department of Planetary Sciences plans to celebrate Drake’s life at a memorial service in late October or early November. “Mike was like a father to me,” Lauretta said. “We’re never going to replace him.”

Students mark Rosh Hashana on campus By Sophie Sieck Daily Wildcat
Campus Jewish organizations celebrated the beginning of Rosh Hashana on Wednesday. Hillel, Chabad and Jewish Arizonans on Campus all offered both traditional and reform services and meals to celebrate the holiday, which marks the Jewish New Year. Services will continue until Friday. Michelle Blumenburg, executive director of the UA Hillel Center, stressed the importance of giving students, especially those who are busy, a place to practice their faith on campus. “Some students feel they need to make a choice between going to class and observing a Jewish holiday,” Blumenberg said, “by having services right here on campus we know there are students who pop in for 10 to 15 minutes so at least we’re here, we’re available.” The Hillel services are for students wishing to attend a more reform ser-
vice, however they are open to all who wish to come. The Chabad of Arizona is part of a network of Chabad houses located around the world focused on providing religious support and a place for students to feel at home regardless of their locations. Chabad offers services on all High Holy Days and a homemade Shabbat dinner every Friday that is open to all students. Rabbi Yossi Naomi Winner, who oversees these activities, said he measures the success of Chabad by the actions of students who utilize its services. “Our philosophy is that one light in a dark room can bring lots of light, every good deed a student does is an end to ourselves, it’s a success for ourselves,” he said. Winner said Chabad strives to maintain an atmosphere that creates a community of the students who are involved in the organization. Chabad offered a more traditional lunch and
The Chabad Rosh Hashana celebrations kicked off with a short service that was led by a student as well as Winner. The service was followed by a dinner set up in a large tent in the Chabad backyard with around 100 students in attendance. The meal was kept traditional, and the students were treated to brisket, challah, vegetables, apples and honey. The combination of apples and honey is a traditional food for the holiday because it symbolizes a sweet new year. “I don’t say I have a preference for either (service), both are very good and very similar,” said Juni Nelson/Daily Wildcat Nicole Friedman, a junior studyStudents gather at Hillel Center to celebrate the beginning of Rosh Hashanah on ing pre-communication, who atWednesday.

UA alum to talk water issues By Alexandra Bortnik Daily Wildcat
Turki Faisal Al Rasheed, a UA alumnus, will visit the UA campus today to deliver a talk on “The Role of Agriculture and Water and How it will Enhance Security and the Promotion of Economic Growth.” Al Rasheed graduated in 1981 from the UA agricultural engineering program, and is now the chairman and founder of Golden Grass Inc., a leading agricultural firm in Saudi Arabia. Al

Architecture student wins essay contest By Sophie Sieck Daily Wildcat
Crista Mapes, an architecture senior, was awarded a $500 scholarship by 1800Wheelchair.com for her essay raising awareness about disability inclusiveness in architectural design. 1800Wheelchair.com is a Brooklyn-based company that sells mobility equipment. Its essay contest focuses on getting students to think about mobility and inclusiveness, and Mapes was the spring/ summer scholarship winner. The contest objective is to get students to think critically about making campus and the world a more inclusive place for those with disabilities. Mapes’ essay spotlighted the discrepancy between architectural education and actual construction,
saying, “architects also have the ability to create buildings that are inclusive to both user groups as a way to bring them together and create a community rather than clusters of people cohabitating. I believe in order to make my campus and campuses across the world more inclusive, it is a crucial step to educate young architects in the area of universal design.” The UA campus has made strides toward creating a campus that is inclusive for all students, Mapes said. “My understanding is we have a very disabled-friendly campus.” The UA’s accessibility efforts include the reconstruction of the Student Union Memorial Center, residence hall options for those with disabilities, accessibility maps and a
variety of transportation options. Joseph Piekarski, president of 1800Wheelchair.com, said the overriding idea of the company is to do well by doing good things for the community. “Yes, we have a business,” he said. “We’re also in a unique position of being able to help foster a discussion about mobility, either on campus or in the larger world.” Both 1800Wheelchair.com and Crista Mapes stressed the importance of creating a world that is accessible and inclusive to everyone through education and practice. “I think it could be more inclusive, and more of a focus on it,” she said. “Everything is pretty conceptual as far as designing and experience, but understanding who the people are who use the
buildings is important.” Mapes had previous experience regarding architecture and disabilities. Due to her involvement with Freedom By Design, an organization that utilizes the abilities of architecture students to create solutions for problems within the architectural world, she was able to tour Washington, D.C., and the UA campus blindfolded and in a wheelchair. After experiencing the difficulty that mobility-impaired people deal with every day, she was able to provide a view into how the importance of teaching inclusiveness in architectural design. “There is definitely a difference between architectural education and architecture practice, and that’s the biggest thing,” Mapes said.

are affected by the graduates in the state K through 12 system. That’s one perspective I bring. Another one is that of a parent. I have five children. Two are in the university system and three will follow, most likely in the state university system. I have the perspective of someone who’s raised a family in Arizona. I also came to Arizona 33 years ago for the university system. I view the universities as critical in building the future of our state. They will also have much to do with how many bright, gifted people we have in Arizona and how many we can attract. Do you have any other areas you want to focus on while on the board? My view is that the most important thing for universities is once they’ve clarified collectively and individually their missions for the foreseeable future, they have to be provided resources to attract talent to execute them. And then good things are going to happen. We need to put resources in hands of talent. If you get that wrong, it won’t matter what else you get right. I’m interested in what the universities can do in terms of attracting the most talented people in the U.S. in their disciplines to be here, and not only for the purpose of research, but the benefit of undergraduate education.
Economic data seems to point away from recession as jobless claims fall Mcclatchy tribune
WASHINGTON — The economy grew slightly more than previously estimated in the last quarter and weekly jobless claims fell to their lowest number in five months, signs that the nation may not be heading into another recession yet. The economy grew at an annual rate of 1.3 percent from April through June, an anemic but marginally better pace than the most recent estimate of 1 percent, federal officials said Thursday. The revised data on total economic output, also known as gross domestic product, narrowly beat expectations. Also Thursday, the Labor Department reported that weekly claims for unemployment insurance dropped 37,000 last week to 391,000, the lowest figure since early April. Economists said claims below 400,000 were a positive sign for job growth. The unemployment rate was 9.1 percent in August after the economy failed to add any new jobs.
Even so, a private report Thursday indicated that only about a third of the nation’s chief executives expected to hire employees any time soon. The two government reports indicate fears of another recession are unwarranted right now, said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist for the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi in New York. “The economy is not teetering on the edge of a cliff, getting ready to fall over into a recession,” he said. Technically, a recession is determined by two straight quarters of negative growth. In the first three months this year, the economy barely grew, expanding at an annual rate of just 0.4 percent, leading to fears of double-dip recession as the economy struggled to recover from the deep downturn that technically ended in June 2009. The Commerce Department originally had estimated second-quarter economic growth at 1.3 percent in July, but revised the figure down to 1 percent last
month. Despite the somewhat improving outlook, major corporate chief executives aren’t very optimistic about the direction of the economy. Their expectations for sales, capital expenditures and adding U.S. jobs dropped significantly in the third quarter, according to findings released Thursday from the Business Roundtable’s CEO Economic Outlook Survey. “While we still see strong business fundamentals in America, the quarterly survey results reflect increased uncertainty among CEOs concerning the economic climate and business environment,” said Boeing Co. Chief Executive Jim McNerney, chairman of the group. For example, the survey found that 36 percent of CEOs expected to add employees in the U.S. in the next six months, down from 51 percent in the second-quarter survey. And 24 percent expected to lay off workers over the same period, up from 11 percent.

Students flip for parkour club By Jason Krell DAILY WILDCAT

Optical sciences sophomore Caleb Pocock practices parkour by the UA Main Library.
Fashion, from the runway to the UA By Ashley Pearlstein DAILY WILDCAT
Caleb Pocock can do things normally reserved for cartoons and fictional characters. He can scale 10-foot walls with just his hands and feet, hop between ledges 7 feet apart and vault over just about anything. Oh, plus he could probably fall from most heights without hurting himself. And he does this through parkour. Pocock is a sophomore studying optical sciences and engineering, but he’s also the treasure of UA Parkour, the club on campus dedicated to training in new-age sport. But what exactly is parkour? “Parkour is a kind of sport and an art at the same time,” Pocock said. “One of the bases is getting from one place to another in the quickest and most efficient way.” And when he says that, he means it. After seeing him backflip off walls and run up trees before leaping over to a nearby ledge, it’s hard to believe that anything could slow Pocock down when he’s on a roll. It gets better, too. According to Pocock, anyone can learn parkour. It helps to be fit, but the basics only took him about a month to learn. Plus, with the help of a club like UA Parkour — currently around 15 to 20 members strong — a person can really become a parkour professional. The sport is cheap to pick up since all you need is a pair of shoes, and those who take part say it’s a blast. Sure, it might take some determination to improve, but who in our generation couldn’t use a lesson in hard work? Pocock showed that parkour can be a good workout too, as by the end of his demonstration, he’d worked up quite the

sweat. Then again, that’s part of the idea, and UA Parkour’s mission reflects that. “(Parkour) is very physically challenging, which keeps you in shape,” Pocock said. “It takes dedication to get better. It’s pretty much to stay fit and have fun.” That isn’t to say parkour is some kind of alternative workout method. Rather, the members of UA Parkour want to foster an enjoyment of the sport while staying fit in the process. Both safety and legality are important facets of UA Parkour, and the parkour mentality in general. “We’re not going higher than 10 feet,” Pocock said. “There’s no climbing on any buildings, statues, memorials … Another important factor for parkour is that it’s meant to leave no trace. No damaging anything. We pay a lot of attention to what we’re doing.”

Club Crawl, LexiconDon take over Tucson once again By Joe Dusbabek DAILY WILDCAT
Tucson’s largest 21-and-over event, Tucson Weekly’s Club Crawl, waltzes in this weekend with 30 stages and 90 bands, and is prime to offer locals a weekend to remember. Music groups from all over Arizona, such as garage-rockers The Love Me Nots, female duo Scorpion vs. Tarantula and local group Ghost of 505, come to downtown Tucson just for the chance to play in the annual event. This year, Club Crawl’s reach extends even farther out, bringing in talent such as alt-rock group Kicking Harold, newly successful dance favorites LexiconDon and Fabian from Los Angeles and the electronica sets of Bulletproof Tiger from El Paso, Texas. Alex Koons, one of the three leading men in LexiconDon, plans to return to Tucson with a bang. “We did a nationwide tour in July
and Tucson was one of our better stops,” Koons said. “We stopped at Club Congress and really rocked it out, we made connections there and then they invited us back for Club Crawl.”
Club Crawl When: Saturday, gates open at 7 p.m. Where: Congress Street and Fourth Avenue Cost: Wristbands available at Zia Records, $8 in advance, $10 at the door. 21+
According to Koons, Tucson remains one of the American Southwest’s better music scenes, especially for frontmen like himself. “Oh man, Tucson was bananas. People were receptive, there was a lot of energy in the crowd,” Koons said. “Any time we get to get out
of Los Angeles, I think we’re super stoked.” After LexiconDon’s 2008 release, “Pink and Blue,” Koons, bassist Sam Gabbard and fellow bandmate Fabian Ordorica are no strangers to success. Building their set around the feeling of live shows “built on the energy that can only come with live instrumentation,” LexiconDon has seen increasingly more people attending its shows. By all accounts, it seems like Club Crawl will continue the trend. “We don’t really know what to expect, because we don’t really know what Club Crawl is like.” Koons said. “Club Congress in particular is just really cool and we can’t wait to come back to Tucson and do another good show.” With the way this year’s Club Crawl is looking, LexiconDon might not be the only band putting on a good show — Tucson’s premier festival is back and more badass than ever.

Since then, it’s provided millions of gamers with an exciting way to occupy their time.

Even our values have a price tag
Storm Byrd Daily Wildcat
ow do you test the convictions of a person? You take away their money. With economic uncertainty bludgeoning America over the head, states have begun to relinquish some of their reservations about alcohol. Recognizing its economic potential, states are desperately grasping to cash in on alcohol to fill in holes created by the economic downturn. Some states have attempted to raise more funds from alcohol by increasing taxes on it, which, in theory, could deter purchases. Maryland and at least 12 other states are increasing the tax on alcohol. Maryland’s alcohol tax rose 3 percent in July, and is expected to produce $85 million in additional revenue. That’s a lot of extra coin. On the other hand some states have let down their guard and embraced changes to make alcohol more accessible on Sundays and on university campuses. In Atlanta, there will be a November vote to repeal colonial laws that prohibit the sale of alcohol on Sundays. At Louisiana State University, the university will now receive royalties of a beer named after one of their famous football defenses. It’s apparent that economic hardships can be the ultimate test of just how adamant people are about their values. Many states have prohibited the sale of alcohol on Sundays purely as a religion-driven idea. However, not even God seems to trump greed these days. Jerry Luquire, president of the Georgia Christian Coalition, said, “God knows — and I say that reverently — you can’t prove anything with religion anymore. So we’re saying, ‘Please vote no (on allowing Sunday alcohol sales) to save a life.’” I also thought it would be a cold day in hell that those with a religion-motivated interest would admit that it wasn’t working anymore. I didn’t, however, think it would be much longer before all of America’s hang-ups with alcohol dissipated further. The sad truth is, our convictions, morals and beliefs all come with a price. It seems that we can no longer comfortably take stock in them, while our American stock market falters. We can no longer afford to keep up our fronts while we’re having trouble putting food on the table. Who knows how long it will be before Americans back off their staunch opposition to marijuana? It’s likely only matter of time before those on their religious high horse backoff and allow same-sex marriage. But maybe we’re just not that economically insecure yet. —Storm Byrd is the Perspectives editor. He can be reached at email@example.com.
MAILBAG Mini-dorms, not students in general, are the problem In response to “This or that: Mini-dorms — intrusive or ingenious?” (Sept. 22): Since the Wildcat is a student newspaper, I don’t normally find it appropriate to write in. But the discussion of mini-dorms on the editorial page on Sept. 22 moves me to correct some misconceptions. Residents of university area neighborhoods do not consider students to be invasive. This is a myth promoted by predatory landlords seeking to profit at all of our expense. Feldman’s Neighborhood, like mine, was not originally a student neighborhood. They and others have become so as the university has gobbled up more of central Tucson. My neighborhood is now 70 percent renters, most of them students who share vintage single-family homes or live in modest complexes like the one near me. In 12 years I have never had a single problem with residents of this well-kept eight-unit single-story complex. This is in stark contrast to the nearby mini-dorm, with its all-night parties several nights each week and belligerent, disrespectful residents. While it is true that students — or anyone else — can behave badly in any type of housing, the mini-dorm’s bloated architecture broadcasts contempt for the historic form and scale of central Tucson houses and neighborhoods. Residents seem to pick up the message that anything goes and behave accordingly. It is not ingenious but dishonest to evade zoning by constructing de facto commercial properties in residential areas. In the long term, driving owner-occupants out of these neighborhoods could destabilize them to the point where it will not be a safe or desirable place even for student renters. To conclude, nearby neighbors are not antistudent. What we object to is the destruction of our historic neighborhoods by ugly McMansions that encourage chronic bad behavior. — Laura Tabili Associate professor, history

Pulse of the Pac While we’ve been offering perspective on the discriminatory actions of reviewing instructors for their accents, the economic feasibility of graduate school and the change in the UA Main Library’s public hours, the rest of the Pac12 has been delivering opinions on the notion of affirmative action and a college campus’ response to it, as well as racism and what justice means in modern America. Take a look at what the Pac-12 has to say:
California The Daily Californian
Arizona State University The State Press
“I noticed Berkeley College Republicans’ recent attempt at a satirical “Increase Diversity Bake Sale” kind of blew up in their collective face. If the goal was to merely create attention for their cause, then bravo, but the decision to create a “satire” challenging SB 185, which seeks to make affirmative action-type policies legal again, was a let-down…instead of delivering satire, you delivered a meanspirited joke…the main problem with the “Increase Diversity Bake Sale” is of course, the pricing structure. While the higher cost of cookies for whites is analogous to the higher standards of admission whites might face if increasing racial diversity becomes a factor in university admissions, you failed to consider the hypersensitivity of modern day America on the issue of racism. Like it or not, an analogy like yours could be sensible enough, but when cheaper pricing is associated with minorities and women, the readily offensible (sic) P.C. crowd hones in on the link created between cheaper prices and a group’s general economic status. This was not the intention, but the fact is that people have always been sensitive to their income level, and today there is less shyness in pointing out anything that could potentially come across as racist.”
“On Tuesday, the Berkeley College Republicans at UC Berkeley hosted their controversial ‘Increase Diversity Bake Sale.’ According to the L.A. Times, the event was designed to protest Senate Bill 185, a bill that would essentially reinstate affirmative action in California universities’ admissions process, by satirically pricing cookies and muffins based on race and gender: $2 for Caucasians, $1.5 for Asians, $1 for Latinos, $0.75 for African Americans, $0.25 for Native Americans and a $0.25 discount for women. The baking event was met with hundreds of angry student protesters, an unflattering media spotlight, and countless accusations of the event being ‘racist.’ But isn’t that exactly the point the Berkeley College Republicans were making? It was supposed to be racist — a reflection of the SB 185 bill itself…I don’t intend to marginalize the pain and suffering of victims of racial discrimination in America. It is the nature of democracy that minorities will get trampled — the French writer Alexis de Tocqueville called it the “tyranny of the majority,” and argued that it is the most oppressive social and political force on the earth — far more even than a tyrannical monarch or a cruel dictator. But discrimination has not been government-sanctioned since the ’50s, and now I think we can safely proclaim that it is no longer socially sanctioned either…It seems that when it comes to affirmative action, white people better — “Berkeley College Republicans’ take it with a nod and a smile or be instantly Yellowcake” by Christopher Coulter labeled a ‘racist.’” — “Sticks and stones and cupcakes” by Daniel O’Connor
University of Oregon Oregon Daily Emerald “For every innocent man we put behind bars, and even more for every official execution within the United States, we prove to the world that we have no moral standing. We point to China, Russia and Middle Eastern regimes when we discuss secret prisons, barbaric punishments and the faults in the rule of law, but we need to focus the lens of scrutiny back on ourselves. Do we not imprison people without due process? Do we not torture? Do we not kill? It is a shame that in such a great country, we still employ Draconian punishments the rest of the westernized world has long since banned. I call for an end to this barbarism. We must hold the system to the same standards it holds on us. We must use the tools we have such as the camera, the voice recorder and the Internet to capture truth and to expose abuse. Be not afraid because we deserve a more perfect union, but in order to ensure that happens we must not be afraid to act in our own defense.” — “Justice requires public accountability” by Ian McKivor
PETA bares all Jacquelyn Abad Daily Wildcat
ccording to “The Nature and Dynamics of Internet Pornography Exposure for Youth” only about 3 percent of male and 17 percent of female college students have never seen Internet pornography. Companies and organizations have used sex appeal to sell their products and get the attention of people between the ages of 18-25. For years, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have had celebrities pose provocatively in their “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” and “Save the Seals” campaigns. PETA has used these campaigns to advertise to the public about the abuse and mistreatment of animals occurring all over the world. From their public boycotts to their infamous advertisements, PETA will do almost anything to grab the attention of an audience, even pornography. PETA is planning on releasing a website, peta.xxx, featuring pornographic videos along with animal rights messages. Although PETA hasn’t been explicit on how they’ll market their pornography while promoting
the ethical treatment of animals, they have said the site will include graphic videos and photographs. It will be interesting to see how they mesh the two. Who would have guessed that anyone would use porn and PETA in the same sentence? According to PETA, they hope to obtain a larger audience with the new expansion into the porn industry. But don’t you think they’re taking the motto, “sex sells” too far? It’s safe to say that most of the people watching peta.xxx pornography are probably there for the porn rather than their concern for the rights of animals. In an attempt to gain more supporters, PETA is feeding into our over-sexualized society. It is bad enough having semi-pornographic reality television shows like “Jersey Shore,” but this leaves us asking, “Et tu, PETA?” PETA’s intentions are good. They aim to spread their message on animal rights and bring attention to our effect on animals in what we consume and purchase. However, we do not need to see a woman flashing her nude body in order to learn about
how seals are being slaughtered for their skin. The website is going to be as raunchy as the people watching it. Peta.xxx is probably going to attract a lot of perverted animal lovers, but deter anti-pornographic and religious groups. As a result, PETA will alienate itself by sending confusing messages to their followers and the general public. If they decide to follow through with this porn website then they are telling us it’s not okay to mistreat animals but it’s perfectly fine to degrade human beings and use them to gain attention. Abusing animals for their fur to make a chinchilla coat for a fashion statement is a horrible thing, but selling sex to publicize your cause isn’t saintly either. Nowadays, sex and advertising go hand in hand or, in PETA’s case, paw to paw. But, porn is degrading to both men and women and using this outlet as a promotion is pathetic. If PETA feels like they have to advertise through a porn website to appeal to us, what does that say about our generation? They are trying to save animals at the expense of humans. They need to decide between being an animal lover or sex peddler, they can’t be both. — Jacquelyn Abad is a sophomore studying journalism and Spanish.

Police Beat By Rebecca Rillos Daily Wildcat
Special brownies and milk A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to Árbol de la Vida Residence Hall around 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday in response to a report of alcohol and drugs in one of the rooms. The officer spoke with resident assistants who said a resident had requested a room change because his roommate kept alcohol and marijuana brownies in their shared refrigerator. The officer spoke to the man who said he confronted his roommate about the items before, but the roommate frequently became aggressive about it. He asked his roommate to “do that somewhere else.” He added that his roommate had given him a brownie without telling him what it contained. He later realized when he felt the effects of the marijuana and told his roommate “it wasn’t cool not to tell” him what was in it. The roommate offered to sell him another brownie for $10 if he liked it. The man then requested a room change when his roommate would not get rid of the items. During the move, RAs found a plastic shopping bag containing seven marijuana brownies and an open bottle of Smirnoff vodka. The man asked the officer to take the items. The officer then spoke to the roommate and asked him if he knew why he was being questioned. The man said, “Yes, because of some objects I shouldn’t have?” He told the officer there were two empty alcohol bottles and nothing else in the room. He talked about brownies that might have had marijuana in them but denied that they were his. He said some visiting friends may have put them in the fridge while he was sleeping. The man was arrested for possession of marijuana and minor in possession of alcohol.
We’ve got you CovereD
After hours, out of luck A UAPD officer went to the UA Main Library around 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday in response to a report of an unwanted person in the library. The officer spoke with a library employee, who told the officer a man was violating the library policy that all non-UA personnel are required to leave the library by 9 p.m. She told the officer that library staff sends out a message to all the computers informing patrons of the new requirement. She added that staff members have spoken to this man before about the policy. The officer approached the man, who identified himself with his Missouri identification card. He said he was aware of the 9 p.m. curfew and acknowledged his other warnings from UAPD. He said he just lost track of time and did not remember receiving the message on the computer. The man was cited for trespassing and was told not to return for at least 24 hours.
Cruiser bike sails away On Tuesday a UAPD officer spoke on the phone with a woman who reported that her bike had been stolen from Árbol de la Vida Residence Hall. She told the officer she locked her silver Schwinn Delmar Cruiser to the rack with a U-Lock through the frame at 3 p.m. on Monday and when she returned Tuesday morning, the bike and lock were gone. The woman estimated the value of the bike to be $150 and the lock, $30. She was able to provide the serial number and said the bike is registered with Parking and Transportation Services. There are no suspects or witnesses at this time.

FOR ARIZONA MIKE CHRISTY / DAILY WILDCAT
USC running back Marc Tyler poses after a touchdown during a career-high night against Arizona last season in Tucson.
Slowing Tyler key for UA’s front seven By Alex Williams DAILY WILDCAT

The Arizona defense is hoping it doesn’t have a déjà vu moment against USC and running back Marc Tyler on Saturday. Tyler ran around, through and over the Wildcats’ defense en route to a career-high 160 yards in last year’s meeting between the two schools. But this time around, Arizona knows what it needs to do to stop the 5-foot-11, 230-pound senior — even if it’s easier said than done. “If you don’t get low to tackle him, he’ll run you over,” defensive coordinator Tim Kish said. “He’s powerful because he’s as big and strong as he is, but he’s shifty and sees everything in front of him.” After having a career day against Arizona a season ago, Tyler could be primed for more of the same this year. The last three running backs to face the Wildcats have each set a career high in yards, and all three have had a top-tier quarterback behind center. Those teams have been able to take advantage of an Arizona defense that is over-aggressive at times; hitting play-action passes for big plays. “That’s a credit to this conference and the type of people playing in it,” Kish said. “I just think their run and play-action passing game complement each other as well as any team in the conference.” But most of what USC does on offense starts with the man carrying the ball. As physical as a running back as Tyler is, most of his success stems from his outstanding vision. USC uses zone-blocking schemes on its run plays, which allow the running back to make his own reads and find holes. “He understands what they’re trying to do,” head coach Mike Stoops said. “His size makes him a factor … he understands the zone very well.” Tyler’s physical abilities — specifically his ability to jump cut, Kish said — make him a perfect fit in the USC offense. The Trojans are philosophically very similar

Last year’s nightmare ending carried over to the 2011 football season. The Wildcats couldn’t have asked for a worse start to the season, getting slaughtered on national TV three games in a row. But with Arizona opening Pac-12 South play with USC at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday in Los Angeles, players and coaches agree it’s time to wipe the slate clean. “It’s tough when you come out of all of those games with losses but we’re starting fresh now,” said senior receiver David Douglas. “New month, new season really and we’re just going to take it from here. That’s all you can do, wipe it clean, come out and practice well and hopefully get after it this week.” It’s impossible to forget Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden completing a school-record 42 passes, Stanford hitting
the Wildcats right in the mouth both on the ground and through the air and LaMichael James rushing for a school-record 288 yards. Arizona faced three top-10 opponents back to back to back and got put in its place in humiliating fashion. “It’s been a tough month, let me put it that way,” said head coach Mike Stoops. “We’ve played some very elite teams and some very elite players. We’ve seen pretty close to the best. We’re seeing if we can get Oklahoma and Alabama for the 13th and 14th game, and LSU.” But although the Wildcats sit at 1-3 and have been outscored 130 to 55 in their last three games, the real season starts Saturday. Arizona was expected to lose to both Stanford and Oregon, but it’s the Pac-12 South where the Wildcats knew they could realistically be competitive. “It’s new life for our team knowing that

All eyes on Woods for Arizona’s secondary Sophomore Trojan receiver has come into his own, become a ‘complete’ player
WATCH By Dan Kohler
By Mike Schmitz
With the majority of Arizona’s focus on limiting USC running back Marc Tyler and USC’s ground attack, the Wildcats can’t forget about wide receiver Robert Woods. After an inconsistent freshman season, the five-star recruit and No. 1-rated high school receiver has turned the corner as a sophomore and is developing into one of the top wideouts in not only the Pac-12, but also the nation. “He’s got all the tools, man,” said Arizona secondary coach Ryan Walters. “He’s going to be a really good player in the future. He’s very good after he catches it, and he has great hands. Great route-runner, and he’s very competitive. He’s a complete receiver.” Through four games, the 19-year-old speedster ranks second in the nation in receptions with 41 — 11 more than the Pac-12’s secondplace receiver — and third in receiving yards with 492. His four receiving touchdowns are also tied for tops in the Pac-12. If the Carson, Calif., native continues with his torrid pace, he’ll finish the season with 123 catches, 1,476 yards and 12 scores. “His route-running ability is great, he has great hand-eye coordination with the ball to go up and get it,” said Arizona safety Robert Golden. “He’s a very good receiver.” Woods showed flashes of greatness as a freshman in 2010, but his inconsistency kept him from becoming an elite receiver. But after catching fewer than five balls in all of his first five career games, he broke out mid-season against Stanford with a 12-catch, 224-yard, three-touchdown performance. Woods hit stride after that performance. “He’s just developed,” said head coach Mike Stoops. “You can tell he’s a much different player than he was a year ago. Just much more mature, understanding how to space the field, routes, catching, everything. He’s just a much more complete player right now than he was a year ago.” Walters, who played safety at Colorado and played against NFL receivers like Michael Crabtree and Dez Bryant, compared Woods’ speed and 6-foot-1, 180-pound frame to

USC wide receiver Robert Woods will challenge Arizona’s defensive unit this Saturday.
Philadelphia Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin. “He’s different than the great receivers I’ve gone against,” Walters said. “The Crabtrees, the Dez Bryants, those are pretty physical guys. I wouldn’t say he’s that physical but he’s more like a Jeremy Maclin type receiver. Quick, fast, good hands, elusive, he’s all those.” Arizona’s secondary got the night off against Oregon last week as the Ducks threw the ball only 20 times, but the Wildcats will be tested this Saturday. Since getting torched by Oklahoma State’s Brandon Weeden and Justin Blackmon, the UA defensive backs have been solid. “Coverage-wise, I think they’ve gotten a lot better,” Walters said. “A lot tighter coverage on the back end. I think communication’s been a lot better. Shaq’s (cornerback Shaquille Richardson) playing a lot better, Trevin’s (cornerback Trevin Wade) playing lights out, Golden’s been steady.” Arizona’s secondary will get a lift with the return of starting safety Marquis Flowers, but the Wildcats will still have their hands full with Woods, quarterback Matt Barkley and USC’s play-action-heavy scheme come Saturday. “They try and run, run, run then play action and get a deep ball with him or try to run, run, boot you and just get him the ball out in space and let him make a play,” Golden said. “We’ve just got to be down on our technique.”
Ka’Deem Carey, running back With limited touches so far this season, Carey has shown flashes of brilliance running the ball. His ability to move his feet combined with his pure athleticism always makes him a threat to break off a big run. Despite not crossing the goal line yet this season, Carey has rushed for 151 yards on 33 attempts. If his blockers Ka’Deem Carey are able to create room for him to run, look for him to running back take advantage this weekend on the road.
Robert Woods, wide receiver As the Trojans’ leading pass catcher, Woods has hauled in 41 passes for 492 yards and four touchdowns during the first four contests and will look to continue that dominance against the Wildcats this weekend. The chemistry of quarterback Matt Barkley and Woods equals that of Nick Foles and Juron Criner, so the Wildcats will need to run a shutdown defense to keep Woods’ production to a minimum. Marc Tyler, running back If Arizona wasn’t concerned enough with the Trojan passing offense, Tyler offers just as much of an offensive threat for USC on the ground. Last year in Tucson, Tyler ran all over the Wildcats defense with Marc Tyler a career-high 160 yards and a touchdown, and he running back only looks better this season. In just three games he’s posted 303 yards and two touchdowns. With the problems that the Arizona run defense has been having, look for the Trojan offense to test the Wildcats as much as it can on the ground.
Drew Robinson, tight end The junior college transfer has yet to contribute as far as the Arizona passing game is concerned, but he’s been a formidable body for the Wildcat backs to run behind through the start of the season. A nagging foot injury sidelined Robinson during spring ball, but the coaching staff notices his day-to-day improvement as a part of the Arizona offensive scheme. At the junior college level he was known for his pass catching ability, but he has yet to record a pass on the stat sheet for Arizona. That should change this weekend. Nick Perry, defensive end As a part of one of the Trevin Wade, cornerback Trojans’ most highly toutAfter a lackluster junior ed units, Perry leads USC year, Wade has stepped with two sacks, a forced out into the limelight as fumble and 18 tackles on Arizona’s most dominant the season.

Rubio plans for physical weekend against Stanford, Cal By Kelly Hultgren DAILY WILDCAT
Arizona volleyball head coach Dave Rubio spent a lot of time watching film this week, trying to find weaknesses for both No. 4 California and No. 6 Stanford. The Golden Bears and the Cardinal will be two of the most physical teams the Wildcats play in the conference, Rubio said. Arizona (10-3, 2-2 Pac-12) faces Cal tonight in Berkeley, Calif., and Stanford on Sunday in Palo Alto, Calif. Rubio said the northern California teams are two of the best in the Pac-12. “We’re going to have to serve tough,” Rubio said. “For us, jumping into the next tier of schools, which is the upper-tier, we’re going to have to do a better job of serving. We’re not going to out-physical anybody, we’re going to be quicker, have faster ball handling and defend better.” “Our margin for error is razor sharp in
terms of our ability to create our own success,” Rubio added. Unlike past matches where Arizona was able to relapse for a few points and then regain control, there will be no room for unforced errors this weekend. One of the Wildcats’ tactics will be to push the other teams’ players out of their comfort zones. “We’re going to have to get passers off their mark, make them move a little bit and take them out of their system, from a serve receive standpoint,” Rubio said. Rubio did notice some weak spots for Cal. The Golden Bears were ranked No. 1 until two consecutive losses to No. 5 USC and No. 2 UCLA. “Cal, I don’t think is a great passing team, but they’re super physical,” Rubio said. On Sunday, the Wildcats take on the Cardinal, who is 8-3 and 2-3 in conference. Like Cal, it lost to both UCLA and USC. Freshman outside hitter Madison Kingdon said she knows of her team’s tendency to make service errors, and will try to make sure she doesn’t contribute to any of them. “If we just clean up our errors then we’ll be good,” Kingdon said.

The suspect’s name in the shooting of Arizona forward Kevin Parrom was released by the New York Police Department on Thursday evening. Jason Gonzalez, 19, of Bronx, New York, is wanted in the shooting that injured Parrom’s right leg. Parrom was attacked by two men in his home on Saturday before the men fled on foot, according to a release by the department. Parrom was treated and released at Lincoln Hospital, the report said. The 6-foot-6 forward was in New York visiting his hospitalized mother. He has returned to Tucson to resume classes though head coach Sean Miller said in a release earlier this week that Parrom’s status on the basketball court won’t be known for a month.

Cancer vaccine quest begins at Mayo Clinic
MINNEAPOLIS — A few weeks ago, the Mayo Clinic made an intriguing announcement: One of its scientists had discovered a possible way to prevent ovarian and breast cancer with vaccines. And Mayo was ready to start testing them in people. Within days, word had spread around the globe. Hundreds of women were suddenly vying for a few dozen spots in the clinical trials in Minnesota. Keith Knutson, the lead scientist, wasn’t surprised: If his experiments pan out, they could signal a turning point in the battle against cancer. The experiments, set to begin early next year in Rochester, are designed to see if the vaccines can prevent recurrences of ovarian and breast cancer in women who have survived earlier bouts.
As the search for a cure drags on, there’s a surge of interest in prevention, said Fran Visco, president of the National Breast Cancer Coalition in Washington. “Without question, women are desperately looking for something new,’’ she said. “Keith is one of the people who is sort of leading the way.” Knutson is among an elite group of scientists trying to attack cancer the way that their predecessors fought diseases like smallpox and measles. “Ultimately,” he said, “we want to develop a vaccine that can actually prevent breast and ovarian cancer.” Knutson, who has spent a dozen years on the project, says many women are understandably eager to take a chance on cancer vaccines, even experimental ones. Cancer survivors, he says, “just feel like

sitting ducks.” Long after treatment, they live in fear that the disease will return. Often, it does. “Those patients are still at very high risk, because it’s hard to get all the cancer out,” he said. So it’s only natural for them to ask: “What can I do to protect myself?” Knutson, 47, began his quest for a vaccine long before joining the Mayo Clinic in 2005. One reason was personal: “I have family members with breast cancer,” he said. “I could see that we weren’t getting enough ideas into the clinic.” At the same time, as an immunologist, he saw untapped potential in the body’s natural defenses. One of the biggest problems is that cancer has a way of evading the immune system. The challenge, Knutson said, is to teach the immune system how to find it.

Give some love with a nickname Do you have any nicknames? Not really, no. How about the Blonde Avenger? I’ll go with that, I like it. I mean, my DJ name is DJ Goldie Fox … a little bit of ’70s and a little bit of the hair color. What if I told you my nickname was the Dirty Burrito? (Laughs) I would not believe you.
Neither would I, because that’s definitely not my nickname. What’s the most interesting nickname you’ve ever heard? I feel like pet names used as nicknames, which are slightly demeaning, are the most sort of out-there nicknames.
On the air
Could you give me an example? When people actually use Carebear or things like that, then yeah, that’s a pet name gone nickname. I actually knew a meth head who was nicknamed Carebear. He always hung out at the Rita Ranch skatepark, and he would skate around with his arms in the air, saying, “Give me some love!” Would you ever hang around such a fellow? Not a meth head, no. If he was clean and went by Carebear, I might. Can you guess what he was like, this meth head named Carebear? I assume that all he wants is a little love back from the world.

Hockey opens year against ASU Wildcats play first games as a university club team in Tempe By Kyle Johnson Daily Wildcat
The No. 22 Arizona hockey team takes on No. 9 ASU this weekend at the Oceanside Ice Arena. The two-game series, which starts with a game tonight at 8 p.m. and concludes with a game on Saturday at 6 p.m., will be the first contest for the newly rebranded Wildcats. Even though these are technically the first games for the new club team, they do still carry some added pressure. The hockey program, which was previously known as the Arizona Icecats, has lost 16 straight games to ASU, and the Sun Devils are again the favorite to win. It will be a huge test for the
from page 6
week at a time so we just want to go out there and beat USC.â€? While still a storied program with grade-A talent, the Trojans looked uninspired during a 43-22 drubbing at the hands of ASU last weekend. Sun Devils running back Cameron Marshall ran all over USC for 142 yards and three touchdowns while ASU sacked quarterback Matt Barkley twice, forced two interceptions and a fumble. In addition to its poor showing
team and first-year head coach Sean Hogan, who will have their first look at whether the offseason changes are purely superficial or are really a sign of change for the program. â€œIâ€™m losing sleep over how excited I am for these games,â€? junior captain Brian Slugocki said. â€œI literally woke up in the middle of the night and my heart (was) beating because Iâ€™m just beyond ready to play.â€? Tonight will be the first of eight games in total that the UA will play against ASU this season. Unfortunately for the Wildcats, this may prove to be a daunting task since the highly ranked Sun Devils already have shown signs of their potential. In their first two games, they beat NAU 10-0 and 11-0 respectively. However, Arizona is bringing back a lot of talent from last year. Eight of the top nine scorers are
returning for the Wildcats. They also have experience; six seniors and seven juniors are on the roster. Of course, the seniorsâ€™ knowledge is even more valuable tonight, considering they are the only ones on the roster that have beaten the Sun Devils. â€œAt the end of the weekend they will be injured, they will be sore,â€? said Slugocki, who has never been on the winning side of the rivalry games. â€œWe are gonna beat them until the game clock is over and we have a W.â€? The game will be played at Oceanside Ice Arena in Tempe, a smaller venue than the Tucson Convention Center. â€œWhen we come out of the locker room, we are pretty much face to face with the fans,â€? senior forward Blake Richards said. â€œItâ€™s definitely a unique atmosphere because itâ€™s so small and the fans are intense. Itâ€™s a great place to play.â€?
against ASU, USC barely snuck past Minnesota, 19-17, in the seasonopener and didnâ€™t exactly overwhelm Utah in a 23-14 victory. The Coliseum is a tough place to play, but the Wildcats proved they could win there in 2009 when Juron Crinerâ€™s 36-yard touchdown catch with 3:14 left in the game locked up a 21-17 Wildcats win. â€œIt was a good feeling,â€? Stoops said of the victory. â€œCertainly there are some players that were part of that. Weâ€™ll draw from those memories but we just have to go out and play better than we have.â€œ
Stoops made it clear that Arizona needs playmakers and a leader to step up on defense. The Wildcatsâ€™ offensive line also canâ€™t give up five sacks again as it has in each of the last two games. Simply put, Arizona needs to play better in all three phases of the game to right the sinking ship and achieve its goal of winning the Pac-12 South. â€œItâ€™s another huge challenge for our team,â€? Stoops said. â€œIâ€™m excited to see how they embrace this challenge and this difficult time. I feel very confident in what weâ€™re doing and certainly our players are improving.â€?

The Arizona soccer team will hit the road this weekend in pursuit of its first win of the season. Today, the 0-8-1 Wildcats will be in Boulder, Colo., for a game against the Colorado Buffaloes, and on Sunday, they will play a game in Salt Lake City, Utah, as they take on the Utah Utes. Colorado and Utah are new to the Pac-12, but that wonâ€™t make Arizonaâ€™s chances of garnering its first win any easier. There have been many problems so far this season for the Wildcats, but senior goalkeeper Ashley Jett said she believes there have been two issues thus far hurting the team the most. â€œConsistency and a lack of scoring. It puts more pressure on the defense when weâ€™re not producing up top and that makes us have to play perfect in order to
even get a tie,â€? she said. The Wildcats opened Pac-12 play last weekend in Palo Alto, Calif., where the No. 1-ranked Stanford Cardinal beat down Arizona to the tune of a 7-0 final score. The Cardinal outshot the Wildcats 39-9, made even worse by the first half tally of 20 shots to Arizonaâ€™s zero. The Wildcats have been outscored this season by a combined total of 21-2 and outshot 167-90. Those statistics are concerning and Jett feels that the team is out of options. â€œ(We have to) keep doing what weâ€™re doing and trying to do better on the field and do the stuff we do well in practice and bring that out to the field and not settle for anything but a win,â€? Jett said. â€œWe think that once we get our first win things will start turning around for us.â€?
The Wildcatsâ€™ defense needs a big game in the worst way this Saturday against USC. The Arizona football team ranks 112th in the nation in total defense through four games as it has allowed 484 yards per game. Here are secondary coach Ryan Waltersâ€™ three defensive keys to stopping quarterback Matt Barkley, running back Marc Tyler and wide receiver Robert Woods: â€œWeâ€™ve got to be able to stop the run. Theyâ€™ve got a good back, good couple of backs, big physical guys. Theyâ€™ve got a big olâ€™ line. Weâ€™ve got to stop the run.â€?
â€œWeâ€™ve got to be able defend the play action.â€? USC sets up the pass by pounding the ball and hitting defenses with the play action. If Arizona sells out on the run, the Wildcats could get burned by quarterback Matt Barkley, who struggled against ASU last week with two interceptions and a fumble.
1 2 Arizonaâ€™s giving up 284.7 rushing yards per game in its last three contests, and it doesnâ€™t get any easier with Tyler. The 5-foot-11, 230-pound senior back has 303 rushing yards and two scores through three games. He didnâ€™t play in week one.
â€œWe have to defend the split-zone boots. They do that all day long. I think if you take care of those three aspects of the offense weâ€™ll be all right.â€?
Barkley does a solid job rolling out of the pocket and finding his receivers so the Wildcats have to stay home and not over-pursue.
