A look back at the Daily Wildcat’s top five news stories of the year By Eliza Molk

Regents OK 2012-13 tuition freeze

For the first time in 20 years, tuition for resident undergraduates will not increase next school year. The Arizona Board of Regents decided this in a unanimous vote on April 5. The regents have increased tuition for these students by more than 20 percent each of the last three years, and will keep tuition and mandatory fees for both incoming and continuing resident undergraduate students steady at $10,035.

The UA gets a new president

The Arizona Board of Regents appointed Ann Weaver Hart to be the next UA president, effective July 1, on Feb. 17. Hart, who is the current president of Temple University in Pennsylvania, was chosen by a 23-member search committee composed of UA faculty, regents, student leaders and community members. The search committee looked at more than 80 candidate prospects, though more than 100 people were nominated for the position. Hart’s contract runs until June 30, 2015.



Students in Mexican-American studies fight ban in local schools

Ethnic studies courses were removed from the Tucson Unified School District’s curriculum on Jan. 10 to comply with House Bill 2281, which sought to end ethnic studies in public schools throughout the state. Under the bill, these courses violated the policy “that public school pupils should be taught to treat and value each other as individuals and not be taught to resent or hate other races or classes of people.” The Associated Students of the University of Arizona held a forum on the UA Mall to address the ban on March 19, and the UA’s Faculty Senate and Graduate and Professional Student Council as well as ASUA released formal statements opposing the legislation.

Tucson Modern Streetcar construction hits campus, surrounding areas The city of Tucson started construction for the Tucson Modern Streetcar, officially named Sun Link, in April. The streetcar line will start just west of Interstate 10 and travel through the downtown area and onto Fourth Avenue. From there, it will turn onto University Boulevard and pass through campus via Second Street, ending at the Arizona Health Sciences Center. Construction has caused closures along Fourth Avenue, Congress Street and University Boulevard, among others. The project is slated to be completed and running in late 2013.


UA Health Network bans smoking and tobacco products outside of hospitals


The network, which oversees the University of Arizona Medical Center-University Campus, the University of Arizona Medical Center–South Campus and dozens of clinics in Tucson and Southern Arizona, banned outside smoking in all forms on Jan. 1 — including in the hospital’s parking lot. “Butt huts,” or designated smoking areas, were also banned. Administrators in the network said that as a leading health care institution, it was appropriate to have a tobacco-free environment. The network now offers free programs and services to employees, patients and their families to help them quit smoking.

Failed legislation brings relief

Senate Bill 1474 would have allowed firearms on college campuses around the state, sparking controversy among faculty and students alike. The bill’s sponsor, Republican Sen. Ron Gould, pulled the legislation on March 27.

Student government, clubs lobby for failure of bills that would allow guns on campus, tuition charges By Brittny Mejia Daily Wildcat

Campus leaders rejoiced after they helped force the failure of efforts to allow guns on campus or create a minimum tuition charge. Senate Bill 1474 would have allowed firearms on college campuses around the state, sparking controversy among faculty and students alike. Student organizations such as the Associated Students of the University of Arizona and the Arizona Students’ Association held forums educating students on the issue, lobbied legislators and mailed letters of opposition to the bill’s sponsors. Had the bill passed, some leaders say it would have affected student recruitment. “I think it would have impacted out-of-state recruiting since Arizona would have been seen as radical,” said James Allen, outgoing president of ASUA. “And a lot of parents would simply feel uncomfortable sending their kids to a school where they know there are students on campus carrying.” ASUA conducted a three-day survey in February and asked several thousand students if they supported the measure. More than

80 percent of respondents said that they did not support it, and did not want concealed weapons to be carried on campus. Student organizations were not alone in their opposition to SB 1474, as the Arizona Board of Regents also voiced concerns about the proposed legislation. “The board remains resolute in its position that firearms, outside of those carried by law enforcement officials, do not have a place on university campuses,” said Katie Paquet, the regent’s associate vice president for public affairs. “Allowing firearms on campus could lead to an increase in dangerous and deadly situations for university students, staff and visitors.” The bill’s sponsor, Republican Sen. Ron Gould, pulled the legislation due to lack of support among lawmakers. Once the bill left the floor, members of the UA community expressed their relief. “I’m not a very big gun advocate and it’s very scary to think that someone can have guns on campus,” said Katlyn Grass, a political science junior. “I know people that would have brought guns and that would have made a lot more people suspicious and uncomfortable.” House Bill 2675 would have placed a $2,000

...A lot of parents would simply feel uncomfortable sending their kids to a school where they know there are students on campus carrying.

­— James Allen, outgoing president of ASUA

minimum tuition charge on students who were not receiving a full-ride scholarship through academics or athletics. “It would have severely impacted the ability of Arizona’s lower- and middle-income families to send their children to college,” Paquet said. “The economic success of our state is dependent on a highly-skilled, highly-educated workforce.” Paquet said Arizonans need to have access to a high quality and affordable university education, and that in-state universities need to encourage efforts that would allow more

students to go to college. Republican Rep. John Kavanagh, who introduced the bill, said the idea came about when he was told that 48 percent of Arizona State University students pay no amount of tuition because of subsidies from the university. But before the House could vote on the bill, Kavanagh decided to withdraw it. Many were happy to see the measure go, including the UA President Eugene Sander. “Those students who really need help, we don’t want to deny them access to the university based on some law that says they have to come up with $2,000 and we can’t help them,” Sander said. “It’s just plain lousy, lousy, lousy legislation.” Sander also stressed the need for better state-based financial aid. Arizona gives its three universities the second-lowest amount of state based aid in the nation. “We think it would be really nice, if in the future, Arizona would consider some sort of state-based financial aid that would help our students,” Sander said. “Hopefully, when the economy is looking better, that’d be something that I think all of us in the university system would like to see considered.”

Brandon McBrien, a triple major in architecture, regional development and business management, presents his business capstone project, an analysis of the daily operations of a national level company.

For her senior capstone project, fifth-year architecture student Laura Huylebroeck constructed a styrofoam model based on a protected wetland site in the San Francisco area.

Capstone projects allow for real-world application By Kevin Reagan DAILY WILDCAT

Two architecture seniors are one step closer to building their dreams through their capstone projects. Senior capstones aim to showcase the knowledge a student gained during their time in college. Brandon McBrien, a senior who studied architecture, regional development, and business management, said he managed the stress of completing his capstone project by always keeping his ambitions in mind. “I want to align myself with a firm that bridges the gap between profit and nonprofit projects,” McBrien said. As someone who wants to do pro-bono architecture work, his business background will allow him to see which projects would make the greatest difference at the lowest cost, he said. McBrien’s regional development thesis argues that a manmade environment has the ability to build a set of values for its culture, while his business capstone is an investigation of the Tucson architecture firm Neptune Thomas Davis. McBrien proposed different strategies the firm could use to overcome corporate challenges and first began his research in the fall when he met with

many of the firm’s employees. “Regional development and business management give me an idea of how my architecture clients might be in the future,” said McBrien, who came up with a “gain-sharing mechanism” for the firm to distribute its profits to employees based on individual performance. He also suggested that the firm use more social media to advertise its environmentally conscious and communal efforts. After presenting the information he collected to a panel of faculty in the Eller College of Management, McBrien said he has a better understanding of the emerging marketing trends and economic ideals necessary for running a successful business. “Architects are notorious for being bad business people,” he added. Architecture senior Laura Huylebroeck has spent more than 100 hours completing her capstone project in time for portfolio reviews. Her project is a remodeling of the Sutro Baths ruins in the San Francisco bay. Her project integrates the history of the remains with a research facility that would allow people to study the wetlands that are emerging over the ruins. “The ruins have always intrigued me

since I was a little girl,” Huylebroeck said, “and I’ve always wondered what could be a good addition to them.” She built six models from various materials like Styrofoam and mediumdensity fiberboard to display the multiple layers and visual perspectives of what she envisions the research facility to look like amid the ruins. The integration of the past with the present through architecture has always been an alluring idea, Huylebroeck said. “I want people to keep the past in mind, but to also see what has developed now,” Huylebroeck said. “And to see how the two can talk to each other.” The six models, along with mulitple drawings and research material, were assessed during an eight-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute discussion with faculty members from the College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. As someone whose past projects include modern libraries and the reconstruction of a theater building in Tucson, Huylebroeck said her architectural education gave her the variability of a “Renaissance man.” “I have become a much more wellrounded person with the knowledge I’ve soaked up,” she added.

’ve learned a lot of things in my freshman year of college. I’ve learned to be careful crossing the bike path on the UA Mall, that living in the dorms is terrible, how quickly Panda Express can get old — no matter how good I thought it was the first time. I’ve relearned how to make friends and I’ve learned that no matter how many times someone says they never throw up from drinking, that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. Most importantly, I’ve learned that I’m not smart. It took me a long time to realize this. For a while I convinced myself that AP classes and SAT scores actually meant something, but of course I was just a silly freshman. Now I’m not saying I’m not smart because the math department discourages me, or because I met some super genius in the library the other day. I’m not even saying it so that girls think I have a low self-esteem and try to sleep with me. I’m saying it because the first thing I learned in college is that no one is smart. That doesn’t mean that everyone is dumb. It means that everyone still has something that they aren’t good at or don’t know about. That is why college is so important — everyone has something to learn. We all have gaps in our knowledge. For example, do you know how far the Earth is from the sun? Take a guess; chances are that you’ll be off by quite a bit. These holes in knowledge are out there waiting to be filled. It’s why we are in college in the first place. Accepting that I wasn’t smart was challenging. All my life I was taught that I was wonderful. I made good grades, I did my homework and I really believed that I knew a great deal about the world. Boy, was I wrong. While I may have tried to ignore the bad grades I received by rationalizing that it was all the university’s fault, eventually I was forced to accept the truth. It was probably the most important discovery I have made. It may even be the most important discovery I will ever make in college. Knowing that I wasn’t smart enabled me to see education in an entirely different light. Suddenly, not only could I learn from teachers but I could also learn from everyone around me. Kids who I pegged as morons the first time around were able to provide me with insights that I had not fathomed. While I don’t expect everyone to classify himself or herself as not smart (I mean, if they did, the word would become meaningless), the lessons I learned when I began questioning my own knowledge will linger for years. There are people out there who are smarter than me and some who are dumber, but that doesn’t mean I can’t learn from everyone. Once you stop thinking you are smart, the world becomes a much more educational place. Plus, when I feel down on myself, I just remember that I’m intelligent. By the way, the Earth is 92,955,887.6 miles from the sun. There. I just saved you the trouble of Googling it.

Exhibit - ‘Speaking in Tongues: Wallace Berman and Robert Heinecken, 19611976’ This landmark exhibition, curated by Claudia Bohn-Spector and Sam Mellon, brings the work of Berman and Heinecken ‒ two seminal yet under-studied Los Angeles artists ‒ into close conversation for the very first time. Each was interested in appropriating and repurposing images from mass media, which helped usher in the use of photography as a key element of contemporary avant-garde art. Their works are explored within the unique cultural context of 1960s and 1970s Southern California, as it fueled and amplified their highly original creative approaches. The Center for Creative Photography began acquiring the Robert Heinecken Archive in 1981. A detailed guide to the Heinecken Archive can be found on the CCP website. Center for Creative Photography.

From television’s lovely ladies making it big by being human to Twitter fights and legends lost, here’s a quick snapshot from August to May of things to note:


Cute girls doing un-cute things cutely

Lena Dunham leads the cast of HBO’s new dramedy “Girls.”


etween Whitney Houston and Adam Yauch, the past eight months have left us reeling with established powerhouses passing on. R&B legend Houston was found dead at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles the night before the Grammys this past February. The 48-year-old singer made headlines both for her powerful voice and her struggles with her exhusband and R&B singer Bobby Brown. Despite her personal life, which included an ongoing fight with drug addiction, she won six Grammys and dozens of other awards during her career. Houston was one of the best-selling artists globally throughout the 1980s and 1990s, selling 55 million albums in the U.S. Adam Yauch aided fellow Beastie Boys Michael “Mike D” Diamond and Adam “King Ad-Rock” Horovitz in creating a seminal rap group from which several current artists draw inspiration. Yauch died at the age of 47 last week after fighting for nearly three years against cancer in a salivary gland. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month. Over its illustrious 25-plus-year career, the group collected four No. 1 albums and sold more than 40 million records.


ew Girl” and “Girls” brought the era of the adorably cute girl doing things that aren’t nearly as adorable or cute as they are — and audiences loving them for it. Zooey Deschanel’s foray into TV came with the tagline: “Boys will be boys. Jess will be Jess.” In the pilot, Deschanel walks in on her way-less-attractive-than-her boyfriend sleeping with another woman, and has to move into an apartment with three single men who at first don’t get her but slowly embrace her. And in true Deschanel fashion, she does it so adorably, rocking her signature bangs, singing in that voice that makes us all melt and making the show a hit for FOX. “Girls” just recently hit the scene, but with Lena Dunham at the helm, the show is bound for great heights. Dunham’s writing has been compared to that of “Seinfeld” creator Larry David. The show, which she stars in, directs and produces, has been compared to the four-female ensemble smash “Sex and the City.” An experiment in 20-somethings trying to make it in New York while making all the wrong decisions about relationships, “Girls” has been heralded as one to watch, and it’s made the theme of cute girls being cute without having to be perfect even more established this year.

Movies making people read, despite the book quality


et’s face it. People reading is much better than them not. And with the popular “Twilight” saga winding to a close with the “Breaking Dawn: Part I” released last November and the first installment of the “Hunger Games” series released in March, movies are making people read books. After the “Harry Potter” juggernaut came to a conclusion last summer, the movie industry glommed onto “Twilight” and the “Hunger Games.” But books are affecting more than just the teen and college-age crowd. Acclaimed 2011 movies like December’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” September’s “Moneyball,” and August’s “The Help” have bucked the stereotype that the literature behind some of these box office smashes isn’t up to snuff. So it’s OK that “Hunger Games” did what the teen action novel did — entertain predictably and not challenge anything too much because, let’s be honest, reading (even if it’s not the highest of highbrow literature) is better than nothing.

he past several months have offered Twitter fights galore between musicians. Fresh-faced 22-year-old rap phenom Machine Gun Kelly took on The Naked and Famous after first buying a sample of the synth-pop group’s song “Young Blood” for his song “Half Naked and Almost Famous.” When the group tore him a new one on Twitter for it, he presented documentation of his sampling rights — but he wasn’t done with the beef. “It’s not that I stole their song, I just used the hook they sung and I rapped. They made me out to be a bad guy when they’re making money off me for the same time, so they’re a victim of their own cynicism,” MGK said in a Daily Wildcat interview last month. But MGK is not alone. Take Rihanna fighting with Chris Brown’s new lady love, model Karrueche, over her old relationship, and Brown fighting wrestler CM Punk (ridiculous, right?) after Grammy rants and arguably homophobic remarks on the social networking site.

The crazies escaped the asylum and ran amok in Gotham City. That is, until the player takes over as Batman and puts them back where they belong. This game was certainly the contender for the best game of the year, and was released to rave reviews from almost every source. The action-adventure game made beating up criminals more fun than ever, and the host of gadgets were a great help.

his year was an exciting one for video games, with some long-awaited and eagerly anticipated sequels. Now that it’s come to an end, it’s time to look back and remember the fond memories these games brought.

Aug. 23, 2011

This game will probably go unappreciated when compared to what else came out this year, but it really is one of the best. A player could stealth through the game, charge through guns blazing, persuade their enemies, or hack their way through and turn the enemies’ electronics against them. The story pulls the player throughout the whole thing and the world really does come to life. Aside from a letdown of an ending, gameplay wise, and out-of-place boss battles, it really shined overall. If you never got a chance to play it, do so.

‘Mass Effect 3’ March 6

Despite its highly controversial ending, “Mass Effect 3” was the best game of the academic year. Commander Shepard’s final bout against the menacing Reapers was a perfect marriage of the first two games. Old faces and new gathered together to take back the Earth in a game that only had one major flaw. In reality though, the most disappointing thing about BioWare’s smashing success was that it had to end eventually, leaving many wishing there was more. — Jason Krell is the assistant copy chief.

Kyle Fogg didn’t put up the eye-popping numbers of Nick Foles or Juron Criner, but his impact on the game went well beyond the box score, and he was undoubtedly one of the top players at Arizona last season. Fogg led the Wildcats in points per game, steals per game and free throw percentage while ranking second in 3-point percentage and minutes played. Fogg was a leader on and off the court and set the tone by hoisting 40,000 shots in the offseason to improve his game. The Brea, Calif., native poured his heart and soul into the program, evident by the tears he shed for 30 straight minutes after Arizona’s NCAA Tournament chances were eliminated with a loss to Colorado in the Pac-12 Tournament championship. Fogg will be remembered for a senior year full of offensive and defensive production, as well as pure heart and passion. Players with those intangibles don’t come around often. – Mike Schmitz

Cory Chitwood | SWIM

Arizona’s senior swimming captain, Cory Chitwood, was able to cap off a strong career by pushing himself to perform at the highest level throughout his final collegiate season. Not only did Chitwood play a crucial role as one of the three veteran senior captains, but he was also a two-time defending 200-backstroke NCAA Champion and 14-time AllAmerican in four years. This year, Chitwood led his team to an undefeated record during the dual meet season. The Wildcats beat No. 14 Iowa, No. 6 California, No. 5 USC, No. 3 Stanford and No. 2 Texas. During these meets, Chitwood posted the fastest times for the 200-breaststroke, 200-individual medley and helped the 400-medley team post the fastest time in the country. Chitwood won his third consecutive 200-backstroke NCAA Championship along with receiving All-American honors for the events of 800-free relay and 200-backstroke. – Christopher Cegielski

Stephen Sambu | TRACK

Now wrapping up his senior year at Arizona, distance runner Stephen Sambu is one of the most recognized Wildcats in the athletics program. This season alone, Sambu holds two national top-5 times in the country in the 5,000-meter race and the 10K. Sambu was one of the most coveted running recruits coming out of Rend Lake College in Illinois two years ago. Since, Sambu has set Arizona school records in the 5,000-meter and the 10K. He is also an NCAA Champion, a two-time All-American and three-time Pac-12 Athlete of the Week. Sambu competed at the world renowned Millrose Games in New York and placed third in the invitational 5K race. Sambu is looking to continue training with Arizona head cross country coach James Li and volunteer coach and professional runner Bernard Lagat to prepare for the Olympic trials and represent Kenya at the games this summer.

Brigetta Barrett | TRACK

Junior high jumper Brigetta Barrett began her career on the track as a sprinter. It was by pure chance that she ended up in the jumping pit looking for a ticket to a college education. A New York native, Barrett holds a perfect NCAA record with three championships. Barrett made her first international appearance summer of 2011 at the International Association of Athletics Federations World Championships in Daegu, South Korea, where she placed 10th overall. She went on to take the gold at the World University Games in Shenzhen, China, later that summer. She has literally raised the bar in the high jumping world. She is now preparing to qualify to represent the U.S. in the summer Olympic games in London. Barrett holds the highest collegiate mark in the country this year, the second best in Arizona history, and is tied for second best in the world at 6-4.75 feet.

Yes, Arizona missed the NCAA Tournament for the second time in three years, but don’t blame Sean Miller. The 43-year-old head coach has done a masterful job since arriving in the desert, and this year might have been his best work despite not making the tournament. The roster Miller had to work with last season had no business even making a run at the NCAA Tournament. Yet, with a 6-foot-7 center, a small forward at the four, a freshman point guard facing off the court issues, a handful of injuries and no true go-to guy, the Wildcats were just a few plays away from going dancing. That’s a testament to Miller and his ability to maximize his players’ skill. Then there’s Miller’s recruiting prowess. He landed the No. 3 class in the country. Gabe York, Brandon Ashley, Grant Jerrett and Kaleb Tarczewski are expected to contribute right away, and Miller would be hard pressed to find a better mix of four recruits. And that’s not even the end of Miller’s recruiting run. He also lured T.J. McConnell, who was a huge get for Miller, and landed an even more impactful transfer in ex-Xavier guard Mark Lyons. – Mike Schmitz


When Mike Stoops was fired last October, it had been nearly a year since the Arizona football team had won a Division I game. Interim head coach Tim Kish’s modus operandi taking over was to end that streak and Tim Kish start with a clean slate, but it former interim wouldn’t be easy. Stoops was football coach

fired two days after the Wildcats’ loss to the Oregon State Beavers and Kish was tested with the task of regrouping a shocked and emotional Wildcat squad in just 10 days, in time for its next conference matchup against the UCLA Bruins. Kish aced that test. The reeling Wildcats came out and dismantled the Bruins, 48-12, and Kish got his first career win as a head coach. Kish managed to lead the Wildcats to two more wins to finish out the season, including the defeat of ASU in Tempe, Ariz. All Kish wanted to do was bring the fun back to Arizona football, and during his six games at the helm of the program, his players and fellow coaches would agree he did just that. – Dan Kohler

Eric Hansen SWIM

As a coach, it is hard to have an undefeated season in any competitive sport. But Arizona swim coach Eric Hansen was able to achieve just that in his first year at the UA. Hansen, a former UA Eric Hansen swimmer and assistant swim coach coach, was seen as a great individual to take the reins of the program after Hall of Fame coach Frank Busch. Upon leaving the University of Wisconsin after 12 years of building the program, Hansen said he felt pleased to be chosen to continue building the prestige of the UA swim team. This year, Hansen was able to take the Wildcats to an undefeated dual meet season where they beat the likes of No. 14 Iowa, No. 6 California, No. 5 USC, No .3 Stanford and No. 2 Texas.

Most memorable moments Firing Stoops, hiring Rich Rodriguez

No event in the past year has changed the landscape of Arizona sports more than the firing of former UA football head coach Mike Stoops and the arrival of his successor, Rich Rodriguez. Stoops and his struggles with team-wide communication and being personable within the community landed him on the hot seat for the better part of his final two seasons with the Wildcats. Tucson locals wanted him out, and after Arizona fell apart during the 2011 season, athletic director Greg Byrne saw the chance to can Stoops and bring in “his guy.” After months of research and meetings Byrne found the perfect candidate in Rodriguez. He took a risk on a guy who flopped at Michigan and faced questions about his compliance with NCAA rules. That risk looks like it will pay off. Rodriguez has quickly changed the culture of the program while serving as a voice to a community that’s been thirsting for exactly that. For almost eight full seasons, Stoops was the face of Arizona football. But since Oct. 10, 2011, the look of Wildcat pigskin has changed. Rodriguez brought in his entire staff minus offensive line coach Robert Anae. He’s brought a level of confidence throughout the university, and if Byrne had never taken that leap of faith and landed Rodriguez, Arizona could have been mired in mediocrity for years to come. — Mike Schmitz

Beating ASU in football

Pac-10, meet Pac-12

“Success” was not a word often used around the Arizona football team last season. And, after Mike Stoops was fired, success didn’t exist in Tucson. As the 2-8 Wildcats prepared for the annual Duel in the Desert, the Arizona faithful was bitterly reminding themselves of the botched Alex Zendejas kicks at Arizona Stadium the year before, thinking there was no possible way the Wildcats could beat the Sun Devils in Tempe, Ariz. But in college football, anything can happen on a Saturday in late November. Coming into the game, the Wildcats were actually able to show a poise they’d been missing most of the season, but with 10 minutes left on the clock, things weren’t looking so good. Arizona was down 27-17, but Nick Foles managed to get it to wide reciever Gino Crump who danced his way into the end zone with a 33-yard scamper. No one contributed as much to the display of senior talents and achievements as fifth-year senior quarterback Bryson Beirne. After Foles went down with a rib injury, Kish called on the veteran to step up. Two plays later, Beirne dumped a pass off to Juron Criner who made at least four guys miss for the touchdown. It was Beirne’s second touchdown pass of his career and the game winner. After the final whistle, Wildcat center Kyle Quinn stabbed the Arizona flag into the end zone turf. Redemption was complete.

On Oct. 20, 2011, Arizona was about halfway through a pounding of UCLA that would end the Wildcats’ 10-game losing streak against teams from BCS conferences. But just seconds before halftime, a man dressed as a ref ran onto the field and took off his clothes, and total chaos ensued. During the break in action, Arizona corner Shaq Richardson was jawing with a trio of UCLA players. That small group started pushing and shoving, and soon both teams were in a brawl at midfield. Ten players were suspended after the incident, including Arizona’s Lyle Brown, Mark Watley, Jourdon Grandon and Richardson. — Alex Williams

After months of rumors and speculation, the then-Pacific 10 Conference added Utah and Colorado in the summer of 2010 to turn the conference into the Pac-12. The conference unveiled a new logo and announced it would split into two divisions on July 27, 2010. Conference commissioner Larry Scott has since been one of the most forward-thinking minds in college sports, moving the Pac-12 basketball tournament to Las Vegas, instituting a championship game in football and adding an East Coast media tour before each football season. — Alex Williams

Moving to Hi Corbett Field On a brisk Friday night in March, the then-No. 8 Arizona baseball team trailed then-No. 2 Stanford 7-4 heading into the bottom of the ninth with the top-rated pitching prospect Mark Appel still on the mound. But in front of a season-high crowd of 4,191 fans, the Wildcats rallied back and walked off on a twoout hit by senior Bobby Brown. The comeback was the first win of a historic sweep of Stanford — the first time since 1993 — but what was even more incredible was that 10,656 spectators walked through the gates of Hi Corbett Field that weekend, signifying a new era in Arizona baseball. Coming into the season, Arizona Athletics made the radical change to abandon Sancet Stadium, the Wildcats’ home since 1967, and relocate off-campus to Hi Corbett Field. And ever since the decision, fans have flocked through the gates of the old MLB spring training stadium and watched the Wildcats battle for their first conference championship since 1993. In just the first game at the new park, almost 4,000 people showed up to watch Arizona beat North Dakota State 3-1, which was 1,759 more fans than last year’s season high.

Daily Wildcat •


This past year was an up-and-down one for Arizona Athletics. We’d like to focus on nothing but the good, but what’s the fun in that? Here’s a look at Arizona’s six biggest scapegoats from the past year: Football suspensions

Head coach Rich Rodriguez had a rocky offseason. Apart from the already difficult nature of transitioning to a new program, the arrest of four of his players, including starting offensive tackle Fabbians Ebbele, didn’t make it any easier. The players involved, according to police reports, entered the home of five students who were having a small gathering, but were asked to leave by the residents. A fight ensued, and players told the members of the party that they would “be back with our homies.” The players did return and a larger fight broke out — ultimately resulting in women being hit, according to police reports. Of the players involved, Ebbele, cornerback Jourdan Grandon and offensive lineman Eric Bender-Ramsay were all charged with criminal trespassing and assault. Since the fight, the players charged with assault have been held out of team practice while they wait for their upcoming court dates. – Cameron Moon

Josiah Turner

Former Arizona point guard Josiah Turner

Josiah Turner was once compared to players like Tony Wroten Jr., Marquis Teague and Bradley Beal. They’re now all likely first-round picks in the NBA draft, and Turner has no college team after being suspended indefinitely and deciding to transfer. Turner also just added another problem to his laundry list of issues two weeks ago, when UAPD announced he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. Few players have failed to live up to massive player expectations as much as Turner has. He was mediocre on the floor all season last year, and even worse off it. Turner’s departure leaves Arizona with a void at point guard heading into next season, and he quickly went from a potential one-and-done guy to one of the biggest disappointments Arizona has seen in a long time. Turner’s flop helped prove that no recruit is a sure thing. That lesson just happened to come at the expense of Arizona and the lightning quick point guard. – Mike Schmitz

Now that Rich Rodriguez has taken over the program, former head coach Mike Stoops tends to get blamed by fans for the demise of Arizona football. For these people, a quick reality check is in order, because obviously they have not seen what Wildcat football was like before Stoops was hired. In short, it was dismal. Stoops’ problem was that he was just a guy who could get the Wildcats from point A to point B. He was never going to be that immortal coach who can take his team to the promised land, but he filled his role adequately. In 2008, he brought Arizona to its first bowl game in 10 years, and followed that up with another two consecutive bowl appearances. But when the 2011 season became a 1-5 disappointment and the

Wildcats hadn’t won an FBS game in almost a year, it was time for athletic director Greg Byrne to put an end to the Stoops era. The question is, when will Gentle Ben’s take Stoops’ name off its oatmeal stout? – Dan Kohler

Arizona’s football practice field

By-and-large, the Jimenez Practice Facility serves its purpose. While it’s not the newest or most advanced practice field in America, it gets the job done. At least it did until spring 2011. Arizona lost starting safety Adam Hall, projected starting corner Jonathan McKnight and expected contributor at running back Greg Nwoko to preseason ACL tears that happened in the facility, and linebacker Jake Fischer tore his ACL at Arizona Stadium in the UA’s annual spring game. The Wildcats’ miserable season may have gone an entirely different direction without all of those injuries, and Mike Stoops might still be roaming the sidelines at Arizona Stadium. – Alex Williams

Sidiki Johnson

Sidiki Johnson was the first member of head coach Sean Miller’s 2011 recruiting class to sign with the Arizona basketball program. He was also the first to leave. Johnson was suspended indefinitely from the team on Nov. 21, 2011, and eventually left the program on Dec. 4, 2011. He certainly wasn’t much of a contributor. In his time at Arizona, Johnson made three appearances and averaged 0.3 points and 0.7 rebounds. But it was the fact that he appeared to be so committed to the Wildcats throughout his recruitment that made his suspension and eventual transfer so strange. The forward had verbally committed to Arizona in August 2009, but a strain of character issues didn’t mesh with Miller and his staff, and his departure left the Wildcats down to a seven-man rotation. That meant few breaks for forwards Jesse Perry and Solomon Hill as the injury bug struck the team later in the season. – Nicole Dimtsios

Lisa Oyen

One win in 19 games. What more is there to say? The women’s soccer team had the worst season, at least record-wise, out of all the athletic programs at the UA in 2011. With a final record of 1-16-2, the Wildcats set a new low in athletic mediocrity at Arizona. Arizona’s leading goal scorer was Jazmine Ponce — with two goals. As a team, the Wildcats were outscored 44-7 on the season, outshot 315195 and let up more than two goals six times. All of that, coupled with a combined six wins in two years, should be reason enough to make a change, specifically with the coaching staff led by head coach Lisa Oyen. – Zack Rosenblatt

happened since the early ‘80s. But after Arizona’s Elite Eight run in 2011, this season was memorable for all the wrong reasons. – Nicole Dimtsios

D-Will selected No. 2 overall in NBA Draft

Men’s basketball missing the NCAA Tournament

To all graduating students who willingly gave of their time to support the division’s mission and goals to ensure a positive impact to the success of present and future students. Our best wishes in your future endeavors!

The most memorable moment for the Arizona men’s basketball team was also its low point. For the second time in three years, the Wildcats missed the NCAA Tournament. In the 2011-12 season, it seemed the Wildcats took the most torturous road possible. Despite conference home losses and a number of onepoint losses, it seemed that Arizona could all but secure a spot in the tournament by defeating 20loss rival ASU in Tempe. But defense — which had been the Wildcats’ strength all year — didn’t show up to Wells Fargo Arena. The Sun Devils secured the 87-80 win and forced the Wildcats to make a run in the Pac-12 Tournament to go dancing. Arizona ran though UCLA and Oregon State, but slipped against Colorado. And the Wildcats didn’t hear their name called on Sunday. The UA missing the tournament this frequently is especially memorable because it hasn’t

Derrick Williams emerged as a star for the Arizona men’s basketball team during the 2010-11 season, so it was no surprise when the La Mirada, Calif., native declared for the NBA Draft. Williams was selected by the Minnesota Timberwolves as the No. 2 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft — matching Mike Bibby’s 1998 draft spot selection — and was the third Wildcat ever to be drafted in the top 5. In his two seasons at Arizona, Williams averaged 17.8 points, and nearly eight rebounds per game. Along with an Elite Eight run, Williams gave the program a face and a go-to scorer, something that the Sean Miller’s team desperately needed during the 2010-11 season. Although most fans hated to see Williams leave Arizona early, his selection gave the program something to cheer about after a heartbreaking finish to an improbable tournament run. “I’ve been working for this moment — to be drafted — for a long time and it’s finally come,” Williams said. “I will continue to do my best to make my family and the Arizona fans proud.” – Nicole Dimitsios

The guard was second in the Pac-12 in scoring (22.5 points per game), 13th in rebounding (6.8), 11th in assists (3.19), seventh in free throw percentage (75.8), second in steals (2.63), third in 3-point percentage (36.8), second in 3-pointers made (2.22 per game) and eighth in minutes played per game (33.88). Whyte was an AP All-America honorable mention and named to the All-Pac-12 first team for the third time. – Zack Rosenblatt

Lawi Lalang | TRACK Head cross-country coach James Li recruited Lawi Lalang during a visit to Kenya during the winter of 2011. Li said Lalang is in a class all his own on the track. Lalang had virtually no formal training until he arrived in Arizona and spent less than six months

on the track prior to winning his fist collegiate race. Now, a little over a year since his arrival in the states, Lalang is ranked the No. 1 collegiate runner and one of the top runners in the nation overall. Lalang received All-American honors and an NCAA Championship as a freshman during the cross-country season and was named the National Men’s Track Athlete of the Year by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. He has also been recognized by the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation as a member of the All-Academic team, with a grade point average higher than a 3.0. In just over a year as Wildcat, Lalang has set four school records. Lalang’s most recent achievement was the opportunity to represent the Wildcats at the Payton Jordan Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif., where he broke the UA record in the 1,500-meters, set in 1989. He was the only collegiate runner to finish in the top 8 with a time of 3:36.77, which was good enough for him to qualify for the Olympic “B” Standard as a sophomore. – Emi Komiya

Allen reflects on ‘successful year’ By Eliza Molk Daily Wildcat

James Allen, a graduating political science senior, was the president of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona from the fall of 2011 to the spring of 2012. The Daily Wildcat caught up with Allen to ask about his experiences during his year in office. Daily Wildcat: How was the beginning of your term after being disqualified from the election and going through a special election? Allen: Looking back on it, I think I was able to show how much I wanted this presidency. To this day I will defend my reputation and say I should not have been disqualified, and winning by an even larger margin during the second election demonstrates that. More importantly, I realized how much passion I had for this position. The election process demonstrated that for me and showed how far I was willing to go to serve students. After a successful year, my record speaks for itself. Looking back on your term, what accomplishments are you most proud of from ASUA? A big thing ASUA focused on this year was diversity. I had an amazing diversity director who made connections with our campus cultural centers, something that was once a completely dead relationship. Our diversity program had an internship program and students from all areas of campus were involved. We held ethnic studies forums on the UA Mall and sent the interns on conferences across the nation. I was able to allocate some funds to the cultural centers, who used the money to hold student banquets, end-ofyear events and a giant step tour. We really needed to help improve their mission, since they were so hard hit with funding cuts. ASUA saved quite a bit of money this year and had more freedom to choose where to spend it. We expanded our marketing team and implemented a program where all clubs on campus could get materials like flyers and posters done professionally for free. We also did a great job in trying to identify the most vital issues students face. We held guns on campus forums and surveyed about 3,000 students to prove that students did not want people to carry at the UA. What about from yourself? I made it a point to travel to Phoenix, anywhere from five to 10 times, to lobby against the guns on campus bill. I testified at the Capitol and even went up against the bill’s sponsor. I made it a point to emotionalize the argument, which made it hard for the legislators to vote against an issue we were so passionate about fighting. I did the same thing with the minimum

gordon bates / Daily Wildcat

Though he was initially disqualified from the Associated Students of the University of Arizona election, ASUA President James Allen took office and helped push through a tuition freeze from the Arizona Board of Regents this year.

tuition bill, which would have charged students an extra $2,000 if they were not on a certain academic or athletic scholarship. It got to the point where I was telling the Legislature, “Look, I’m a Republican, but this is insane.” The bill never even saw the House floor. These were real victories for students. I was also the only president that ever took a $0 increase stance on tuition. I told our administration that I have the UA’s financial statements and that it’s simply a matter of deciding how we allocate our money. Fighting it was the right move, and it changed the conversation about tuition forever. We should never propose anything more than a 5 percent increase unless we are looking at giant cuts again. Additionally, every time I met with an administrator, I brought up the issue of

bringing Spring Fling on campus. I told neighborhoods that opposed the idea that I would “shave off ” Thursday of Spring Fling so that it’s not noisy during a weekday and that we would clean up their neighborhoods after the fact for free. We got Parking and Transportation Services, the University of Arizona Police Department and UA Athletics on board. Now, we just need an answer from incoming UA President Ann Weaver Hart and to convince one last neighborhood and a few academic individuals. What’s your next step now that you graduated? Every former ASUA president goes through a moment where they struggle and feel inferior. They ask themselves, “How can I top my presidency?” I felt pressure to do something

great, but now I’m in the real world and I can start over. After building a relationship with the vice president of Student Affairs and the UA’s chief financial officer, I was able to design a job working with them next year. I will be working and traveling with them while doing a series of projects. We want to make a Groupon for the UA and offer deals like a two for one Pinkberry and create customer access to the UofA Bookstore through a UA app. I’ll think of myself as sort of an executive coordinator. I’ll also be applying to the MBA program at the Eller College of Management. I know I will go to some type of graduate school. In addition, I’ve harbored some interest in the Arizona Board of Regents’ student regent position that will open up next year.
