Construction starts, causes location shift for local businesses

For returning alumni, the Village south of campus will look very different than last Homecoming. The construction for a $54 million mixed-use facility and parking garage in the Village has caused local businesses to shuffle to make room. Village Promenade, a four story development, will include 266 apartments, commercial space, underground parking and a rain garden. Investment Property Advisors is laying down the foundation and businesses have moved from the two blocks along University Avenue, between Martin and Dicks streets. The Ball State Federal Credit Union and Crave Hair Salon both have moved from the Village. Crave Hair Studio relocated to downtown Muncie and the Promenade leasing office will replace it. Meanwhile, the Ball State Federal Credit Union moved into the L.A. Pittenger Student Center. The Dill Street Bar & Grill also moved and opened in the former CBX Bookstore location. It now offers more food along with its drink specials. Cleo’s Bourbon Bar and Red Bird Tequila and Taco Bar have combined into one location at the former Discount Den.

Key players in the upcoming game

BALL STATE OFFENSE

Matthew Page OL Jalen Schlachter OL Jacob Richard OL Jordan Hansel OL Steven Bell OL Zane Fakes TE Keith Wenning QB Jahwan Edwards RB Willie Snead WR Jamill Smith WR Shane Belle WR

OL JACOB RICHARD

Richard, a sophomore, will be one of the interior linemen tasked with defending Kent State’s Roosevelt Nix. In last season’s game, Nix terrorized Ball State’s offense, recording five tackles, two for loss, one sack and a forced fumble. Richard didn’t play in the 2012 matchup, though. Richard is part of a line that has helped Ball State rush for 843 yards and 20 touchdowns this season.

DT NATHAN OLLIE

The senior defensive tackle will be tasked with defending Kent State’s rushing attack, which has proven to be one of the better attacks in the Mid-American Conference. The two-time MAC defensive player of the week had three tackles in last year’s loss to the Golden Flashes.

DEFENSE

Jonathan Newsome DE Nathan Ollie DT Joel Cox DT Nick Miles DE Trent Toothman LB Zack Ryan LB Kenneth Lee LB Eric Patterson CB Jeff Garrett CB Dae’Shaun Hurley FS Brian Jones SS

CB JEFF GARRETT

Garrett is proving himself to be the best corner on the team. He had an interception late in the win against the University of Virginia. With the other cornerback spot a combination of Patterson and Darius Conaway, Garrett has been a consistent presence in the secondary.

ABOUT THE COVER: Today’s front page is the fourth of a series of football posters the Daily News runs before each home game. Look for them in each Chirp.

COLIN REARDON QB KENT STATE

Reardon, a freshman, is in the middle of his first season under center for the Golden Flashes. He has thrown eight touchdowns to three interceptions. Reardon averages 172 yards per game. His backup, senior David Fisher, has completed six passes this season for 70 yards. Like many other quarterbacks Ball State has faced this season, Reardon is capable with his feet. Reardon has rushed for 151 yards and a touchdown this season.

TRAYION DURHAM RB

Trayion Durham has been the thunder to Dri Archer’s lightning this season. He leads the team with 416 yards rushing and three touchdowns. The 6-foot-1, 248-pound bruiser from Cincinnati was an All-MAC Third-Team selection last season. Ball State has given up 208.2 rushing yards per game this season.

LUKE WOLLET SS

The senior defensive back has 10 career interceptions heading into today’s game, and that total is increasing. Wollet led Kent State in tackles Oct. 5 against Northern Illinois University with 15. He also showed his range, recording an interception and a half tackle for loss.

THE MATCHUPS Here’s a look at how Ball State could fare against Kent State University

Kent State special teams vs. Ball State special teams

The Kent State return unit, led by Dri Archer, is a very ADVANTAGE dangerous unit. Archer returned a kickoff 99 yards against Northern Illinois last week. Though he has missed two games due to injury, Archer’s still produced 331 all-purpose yards this season. Ball State’s Jamill Smith has returned 12 kicks for 346 yards this season. The Cardinals have returned just four punts – all of them by Smith – for a total of 14 yards this season. Though Ball State has kicked off to opponents more than 32 times, its given up just 596 return yards, that’s an average of 18 yards per return. Ball State also has been able to produce turnovers on special teams and should look to hold an edge over Kent State so long as Archer is contained.

Ball State offensive line vs. Kent State defensive front

Kent State’s defensive line is led by senior ADVANTAGE Roosevelt Nix. The 5-foot-11 defensive tackle is third among Kent State sack leaders with 21.5 in his career. Much like the University of Virginia defensive front, this group is capable of producing pressure on the quarterback. Though quarterback Keith Wenning was sacked once in the game, he was rushed and knocked to the ground on multiple occasions. Kent State has produced eight sacks this season and picked off opposing quarterbacks five times. Wenning has been sacked eight times this season, while he’s thrown three interceptions. The Cardinals’ balanced offense has helped to keep the quarterback upright and effective.

Ball State rush offense vs. Kent State rush defense

Ball State’s offense has produced 2,868 ADVANTAGE yards this season. While 843 of those have come on the ground, the Cardinals have maintained a balanced offense. The team has 199 attempts on the ground in comparison to its 234 passing attempts. Junior running back Jahwan Edwards has gained at least 80 yards and three touchdowns in each of Ball State’s last three games. His strength inside paired with sophomore Horactio Banks’ speed on the outside has proven effective for Ball State. Banks has averaged 5.6 yards per carry this season, but he struggled last week against a strong Virginia defense. Look for Ball State to reestablish its rushing attack against a Kent State defense that has given up 1,451 yards to opponents this season.

Kent State passing defense vs. Ball State passing offense

On Oct. 5, Kent State held Northern ADVANTAGE Illinois University quarterback Jordan Lynch to 21-of-35 passing for 244 yards. Lynch threw a pair of touchdowns, but the Golden Flashes also picked him off twice. Wenning has been on a tear as of late, throwing for 998 yards and four touchdowns in the past three games. Kent State is sitting at sixth place of the Mid-American Conference standings right now with 231.5 passing yards allowed per game.

Linebacker injuries change lineup Sophomore made first start of season in win over Virginia MATT McKINNEY SPORTS EDITOR | @Matt_D_McKinney “Next man up“ is a cliché, but with the 2013 Ball State linebackers, it’s actually happened. “It’s kind of old, but it’s true,“ outside linebackers coach Daryl Dixon said. “That’s what’s happened. We’ve had injuries, had guys down. Guys like Avery Bailey have stepped up and contributed.“ This season, Ball State linebackers have had to step up from reserve spots into playing large minutes and sometimes even start. Sophomore Trent Toothman started his first career game against the University of Virginia on Oct. 5. Tooth-

Lee has four starts and Chris Calloway has two. “I think guys, for the most part, have taken advantage of the opportunities they have,” Dixon said. “The turnovers and the play has shown.” At the halfway point of the season, Ball State’s defense has created 16 turnovers, two more than last season’s total. Dixon said the culture that head coach Pete Lembo has brought to Ball State is a big part of those contributions. “I think it all starts with the culture that we have,” Dixon said. “I think coach Lembo has built a culture of whether you are a fourthstring guy when you walk in the door or you’re in the first-team, you prepare the same. It’s on you if you don’t prepare that way.” Those who don’t prepare that way won’t be the “next man up.”

Containing Archer isn’t key to win Daily Kent Stater football reporter talks about game MATT McKINNEY SPORTS EDITOR | @Matt_D_McKinney The Daily News sports editor Matt McKinney emailed with Nick Shook, the football beat reporter for the Daily Kent Stater, to talk about the Homecoming game against Kent State University. Q: Last season, Kent State gave up 43 points to Ball State. How has the defense changed since then and how will they prepare for Ball State’s offense? A: The defense actually got younger this season, and it has showed at times. This is not the 2012 [Golden] Flashes defensively, but they’ve made strides in their past two games. They’re susceptible to giving up big plays due to missed tackles, but they haven’t given up many deep passes. Long runs, however, have been a bigger concern. They’ve intercepted opposing quarterbacks in three straight games, and they’ll be more than ready for the deep ball from [Keith] Wenning. Whether they stop it, that remains a question to be answered [today]. Q: How do you foresee Roosevelt Nix playing against a relatively young Ball State offensive line? A: Roosevelt Nix has garnered attention from NFL scouts for most of the season, and Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien — a guy who has plenty of NFL experience — made a point to tell Kent State head coach Paul Haynes before the game that Nix is a very special player, and [he] made sure to tell Nix the same after the game. He’s one of the quickest defensive linemen I’ve ever seen at any level. His uncanny ability to quickly learn the opposing center’s tendencies are visible on the field and even had Haynes marveling after

the Penn State game. He is a major factor on a defensive line that has been banged up quite a bit this season. I see him taking advantage of the youth on Ball State’s line, but his teammates need to support him, too. Q: What’s the key to stopping (or slowing down) running back Dri Archer? A: Playing against Archer isn’t a game plan of containment. Instead, it’s all about knowing where he is on the field at all times. He commands attention, and if a defense doesn’t watch him, he’ll make them pay. He lines up in the slot and in the backfield, and I’m serious when I say he’s the fastest player in college football. I’d love to see him and the University of Oregon’s DeAnthony Thomas in a 40-yard dash. But when it comes to playing against him, opponents must keep him from getting on the perimeter of the field. I’m a big opponent of bubble screens — I think it should be treated the same way as the Power-T formation — but he’s the one player who breaks my rule. He’s got the pure speed to break past all three levels in less than four seconds. The key is keeping him between the tackles and playing tight defense on him. Q: What’s your prediction? A: Ball State’s offense will be just a little too much to handle. Instead of succeeding on long plays, they’ll dink and dunk the Flashes down the field. Kent State will have to play tight defense to limit gains, but in the end, it will come down to how well the Flashes offense operates. I expect a 100-yard game from running back Trayion Durham, a touchdown or two from Archer, but in the end, Ball State comes out on top in a game that will be closer than most expect. Kent State’s approach to the game will be key. They need to have a serious sense of urgency [today], because time is running out on their season.

FIRST MISS BLACK BSU

University begins precursor to current Unity Pageant LAUREN CHAPMAN STAFF REPORTER | lechapman@bsu.edu Ball State alumna Elva Phillips recalls winning the first Miss Black Ball State with excitement and pride. “I was tickled to death,” she said. “It was the first one, and I won. I rocked it.” When she was still Elva Martin, Phillips was a sorority member of Delta Sigma Theta and an elementary education major in 1969. The then freshman from Indianapolis said Muncie was a definite change from her former years at Arlington Community High School. “As a black woman, I was a trailblazer,” she said. “Everything was new, and we were opening up doors.” Ball State does not name a Miss Black Ball State at Homecoming any longer. Instead, Miss Black Ball State transformed into Miss Unity. And in 2007, Miss Unity transformed into the Unity Pageant with the addition of a Mr. Unity. In her 1969 interview with the Daily News, Phillips said she wanted to stress black student unity on campus. “If I were to become Miss Black Ball State I would ... stress within their minds the ideology that being black is an asset and not a hinderance to their status in the world today,” she said. The Black Student Association started in 1969, the same year as Miss Black Ball State. Now, 44 years later, the BSA acts as the “black voice for Ball State’s campus,” said Dairick Wade, BSA president. Wade said the organization works to be empowering and informative for all students on issues that affect black students

at Ball State. The competition is different between Miss Black Ball State and the Unity Pageant. In 1969, Miss Black Ball State was elected exclusively by members of the BSA, according to the Daily News article. “The Unity Pageant is a pageant for any student on campus,” Wade said. “The people who win are the people who show unity best through their campus involvement and who promotes unity through their actions.” Wade said there are competitive elements to the competition including a talent, dance and question portion. While many things may have changed since the crowning of Phillips, one question has remained the same: “How would you promote unity?”

Homecoming winner Joyce talks about her experience JACQUI SCHLABACH STAFF REPORTER | jtschlabach@bsu.edu

A Homecoming queen has been crowned at Ball State for 73 years, though the Homecoming king category added more than 40 years later. Rachel (Quirk) Joyce was elected as the first Homecoming student queen in 1942. After graduation, she became a teacher for 35 years. She lives in Indianapolis and is 90 years old. Joyce talked to the Daily News about her Homecoming queen memories and overall experience as a Ball State student. Q: Do you remember how the process was and how were you selected? A: Back then, what they did was the whole student body voted. ... Every sorority on campus had a candidate and that’s how they did it. ... They had ballots set up in the administration building and people voted. Q: What year in school were you? A: I was a sophomore. And this was right before [World War II] was starting to go on. It was a very, very sad time, and I wrote to an awful lot of fellows who were in the service — not romantic like, but just to tell them what was going on, on campus. It was a sad time at Ball State, but it turned out pretty good for a lot of people. Q: What all did being Homecoming queen entail? A: It entailed nothing. But I’ll tell you what, it entailed having lots of dates. You’d be surprised how many guys would call

Q: Was there anything exciting that stuck out to you the most? A: It was exciting riding in a parade ... in a convertible, of course. That was fun. And when you’re nominated queen — I don’t care who you are — it’s just a wonderful experience because everyone on campus knows who you are, and that’s kind of nice really. I really enjoyed myself. Q: What advice would you give to the candidates now, and the queen when they announce it? A: For one thing, I was shocked to be nominated and to be elected queen. And that was great. I would suggest to people that if they ever want to be a queen, be friendly to people. I’ve always been friendly to people and not to just be a queen. My motto is this: When everyone is around me and they leave the room, they feel a little better. You’ll be elected to a lot of things if you have that idea, I do believe. Q: What is the thing you miss most about Ball State? A: My experience at Ball State, I had a wonderful time. I lived in Lucina Hall [which was converted into offices in the 1970s]. I just had lots of great memories of Ball State, and I’m very enthusiastic about the school. I do have lots of positive things to say. Q: What is one thing you miss about being Homecoming queen?

HOMECOMING

Dance troupe Outlet wins overall in Air Jam for 6th time Modern musical selections play on “The Wizard of Oz” BRITTANY CRIPE STAFF REPORTER | bncripe@bsu.edu The theme for Homecoming 2013, “There’s No Place Like Homecoming,” filled the crowd at Air Jam. Every moment of the show was filled with shouts and cheers. While the audience was still filing in, each team broke out into its own cheers. At the beginning of the show, emcee Tim Stavros walked on stage in an orientation leader uniform and said, “welcome to Freshman Orientation.” Kirsten Davenport, the other emcee, wore a black dress with ruby slippers. Stavros later returned to the stage dressed in a black suit. “I heard buzz all around campus and decided to check it out,” said Sarah Trusz, a student affairs administration in higher education graduate student. “I was surprised by all the talent and excitement.” Before the show started, the room filled with voices singing Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball.” Later in the show, Stavros had the audience stand up and sing the theme to “The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.” Songs for the performances varied, some of them going back to several ’90s hits that got the crowd on its feet. The musical selection often represented the plot of “The Wizard of Oz.” “I come every year to see the creativity based on the year’s theme,” Morgan Johnson, a junior social work major, said. The themes of the performances were full of school spirit, too. Phi Mu and Phi Gamma Delta dressed in football jerseys to get the crowd pumped for the game. Rhythms Dance Troupe started the competition with a bad witch theme and danced to music like “I Put a Spell On You” and “I’m Bad.”

Studebaker Hall East won the residence hall category with its dance to Pentatonix’s “Wizard of Ahhhs,” closely following the progression of the film. “The residence halls really stood out,” Yorel Chavis, a senior telecommunications major, said. “They stepped it up this year.” The Black Student Association portrayed its own version of “The Wizard of Oz,” showing a more modern take on the story. “I’m surprised they didn’t win the independent category,” Zach Lutz, a senior urban planning major, said. Ball State’s hip-hop dance troupe Outlet was the overall winner of Air Jam for the sixth year in a row as well as the winner of the independent category.

Outlet’s theme, like most of the performances, followed a basic outline of “The Wizard of Oz.” The songs used for each performance illustrated the issues the characters of the movie faced. For Outlet, the Tin Man was represented through the song “Heartless” by Kanye West. Ball State University Dance Marathon showed the Cowardly Lion through the song “Roar” by Katy Perry. The crowd stood often and sang together. Even the Alpha Phi and Delta Tau Delta performance ended in the crowd chanting “USA.” “I think it’s one of the main reasons people stay in school,” said DJ Pulce, Homecoming Steering Committee campus relations chair. “On this night,

we take all the energy around campus and put it in one room.” The crowd favorite went to University Singers. The group ended its performance with a change from the Baha Men’s “Who Let The Dogs Out” to Ylvis’ “The Fox,” a recent viral song. Alpha Gamma Delta and Lambda Chi Alpha took the greek category. Several people leaving John R. Emens Auditorium said they felt

Students compete for title of most pride Greek Life groups, other organizations are scored for events Residence halls, fraternities, sororities and other student groups compete to have the most participation in Homecoming events this year by collecting Pride Points.

Although the term Pride Points is new to the Ball State this year, the competition is not. More than 100 organizations are participating in the competition, which was previously known as Ashley Points. The winner of each category — greek, independent and residence halls — will receive a plaque and the overall winner will earn a trophy. Pride Points are awarded for participation and attendance in all Homecoming related activities throughout the week.

Standings are updated online and the Homecoming Steering Committee will announce winners during the Homecoming football game. Caitlyn Sprong, a senior elementary education major and president of Alpha Chi Omega, said Pride Points is a healthy competition. “Alpha Chi Omega highly suggests being involved in Pride Points, and this year, we hope that we can end Homecoming with a high amount of [them],” she said.

As this competition offers prizes and bragging rights, the competition is an asset to get people involved in Homecoming, said Jack Hesser, Homecoming Steering Committee campus relations chair. “Pride Points encourage Ball State’s organization to compete against each other and get involved with a variety of Homecoming activities,” he said. “The competition is taken very seriously by many groups on campus and as campus relations chair, I love

getting to see how excited everyone is when I visit.” Hesser also said the competition is something that can help students come out to events so they aren’t alone. “[That is] part of [why] we have Pride Points, so that organizations are encouraged to show up in full,” he said. “And while all of the organizations may compete against each other, we are all doing it to rally together for the Homecoming game.” Last year, Studebaker West

Complex won as residence hall and overall, the Black Student Association won independent and Lambda Chi Alpha won as greek. “We are very excited and determined to try and win the title back this year,” Dairick Wade, BSA president, said. “Our body members have so much pride for Ball State and winning the Homecoming Pride Points award would show the entire Ball State community our pride for our university.”

Local shops profit during Homecoming The Village gets busy when alumni return, area hotels booked KAITLIN LANGE CHIEF REPORTER | kllange@bsu.edu

Local businesses are expecting to see their profits double during Homecoming weekend. “My business is greatly impacted by Homecoming weekend,” Robert Heeter, manager at Scotty’s Brewhouse, said. “Since we are one of the only restaurants in the Village, we get really busy during Homecoming.” Greek’s Pizzeria also packs its 72-seat restaurant for a full five hours Saturdays during Homecoming, said Brian Burke, franchisee owner of Greek’s Pizzeria. He said Greek’s Pizzeria makes almost double what it

earns on a typical weekend. Heeter said Scotty’s Brewhouse makes around $40,000 to $50,000 during Homecoming weekend, more than its typical $10,000 to $15,000 profit per weekend. Part of Scotty’s Brewhouse profits come from its annual Eggs and Kegs breakfast, which takes place 9 a.m. today, two hours before the restaurant usually opens. Heester said typically, customers will have to wait 45 minutes to an hour before being seated on Homecoming weekend. Greek’s Pizzeria does not have any additional special deals or events. “We just run the usual daily specials,” Burke said. “It’s usually busy enough where we don’t have to [try to] draw people in.” Although both restaurants don’t hire more people to help with the increase in business,

the businesses schedule more workers to deal with the increase in business. “It’s actually one of the bigger weekends for us,” Burke said. “It’s right up there with Family Weekend.” Hotels within three miles of campus also benefit from the increased crowd and are booked for tonight, while Baymont Inn and Suites, Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites and Red Carpet Inn and Suites had no openings Friday night, as well. Lees Inn and Suites manager Judy Miller said whether a hotel fills up depends on other hotels in the area. “It pretty much depends on how quickly the other hotels around us fill up,” Miller said. “If we get booked before Baymont Inn and Suites does, then they will get the walk-ins. If they get booked before we do, then we will get the walk-ins.

In 2011, when my dad moved me into LaFollette Complex, we hopped on the service elevator that was covered in writing, the paint was chipping and it smelled … different. As my dad and I stepped onto the wooden floor of the elevator, he puffed his chest out, took a big whiff and said, “Yeah, it still smells like 1969; it hasn’t changed much.” With 10 alumni in my family, I would say we bleed red for Ball State.
