Men assault U.Va. student

Four black males arrived at 161 Rugby Road late Saturday night, only to flee the scene in a taxi after striking a University student.

Four unidentified suspects threaten student at Chi Phi party; armed individual strikes victim By Michelle Davis

Cavalier Daily News Editor Four individuals confronted a male University student at a Chi Phi fraternity party early Sunday morning, according to a University-wide email sent Sunday. The victim reported that one of the unidentified suspects arrived at the 161 Rugby Road residence by himself, struck the victim in the face and fled into a nearby cab after the student refused to grant him entry into the house. “We asked if he was a U.Va. student over 21 and he said he wasn’t,” said the victim, who wished to remain unidentified. Fraternities in the Inter-Fraternity Council typically keep brothers at the door of their houses to regulate the individuals entering their events, and they have the right to refuse entry to their

houses, said IFC spokesperson Alex Van Trigt. Shortly after the suspect fled, he returned with three other individuals who began to shout at the victim. When the suspects returned, the victim said he “came to tend to what was happening” and he and his fraternity brothers told the suspects not to come onto the property — a warning the suspects ignored. A witness said that one of the suspects had a handgun in his possession during the altercation, according to the police report. But the victim did not see it. “I was told someone yelled out ‘handgun!’, and people sprinted back…but I told the cops that I didn’t see [the gun],” the victim Please see Assault, Page A3

Measures bust budget Scaffolding surrounding Rotunda costs $150,000 more than initially planned By Michelle Davis

Cavalier Daily News Editor Preventative measures the University is taking to keep trespassers off the Rotunda scaffolding could cost the school up to $150,000 more than it had initially budgeted for the roof project, University spokesperson Carol Wood said Sunday. Facilities Management installed the scaffolding during the summer months to allow construction workers to access the Rotunda roof. The University realized shortly after that students would be tempted to climb the temporary structures and began to look for methods of addressing the potential safety issue. The dark green netting on the Lawn was the first attempt at creating a deterrent, but did not seem to discourage trespassing, Wood said. “As the time for the beginning for fall session grew

near, it became apparent that more and more students were attracted to this new venue,” Wood said in an email. Individuals caught trespassing are issued a trespass warning, and face judicial charges, University spokesperson McGregor McCance said. Police have said they will arrest second-time offenders. I n Au g u s t t h e U n i v e r s i t y installed motion sensor lights on the scaffolding to allow police to clearly see individuals on the scaffolding and accost them when they descend the roof. But when the lights did not deter trespassers, the University hired private security guards to patrol the Rotunda during the night. “ R e c e n t l y, s o m e s t u d e n t s have waited until the guards went off duty to begin their climb, so we are… extending the patrol hours,” Wood said. Guards will now patrol until daylight, although Wood said

the exact timing has yet to be decided. Most recently, construction workers installed eight-foot wooden barriers to hinder individuals from accessing the scaffolding. “That may seem like a lot of precautionary measures, but the safety issues are great,” Wood said. “We don’t want students to fall off the scaffolding — and that is a real possibility if they continue to try to climb up.” McCance said he knew of one student who had slipped while attempting to descend the Rotunda roof, but added the individual caught himself and did not fall. The University has issued a number of warnings to students about the potential dangers of falling off of the Rotunda scaffolding.

The University built scaffolding to facilitate Rotunda roof renovations but has since had to add security to ensure students do not attempt to scale it.

Board retreat costs more than $34,000

University pays facilitator Terry MacTaggart $15,000 to assist two-day discussions, help address challenges facing higher education By Kelly Kaler

Cavalier Daily Associate Editor The Board of Visitors retreat last month cost more than double its original budget, according to receipts released last week. The University is footing the more than $34,000 bill, with the initial $15,000 budget funded

by the University endowment and the excess costs paid for by Board office funds set aside earlier in the annual budgeting process. The addition of a facilitator, Terry MacTaggart, to help the Board address the challenges that face the University explains the majority of the $19,000 disparity — MacTaggart received a

$15,000 fee for his work during the two-day retreat. “It’s never okay to go over budget, but things happen and you have to deal with it,” University spokesperson Marian Anderfuren said. The bill covered the cost of hotel rooms at the Omni Hotel in Richmond, food, transport and MacTaggart’s facilitation.

The retreat was specifically held in Richmond because the Board initially thought that Gov. Bob McDonnell would attend the event. When it was confirmed that the governor would not speak, the decision to hold the retreat in the capital had already been solidified. Given the media frenzy surrounding University President

Teresa Sullivan’s resignation and reinstatement during the summer, the Board chose to double the size of the room to accommodate a larger media presence, Board Secretary Susan Harris said. Other added expenses included Please see Board, Page A3

Senior vice provost named New position to coordinate strategic planning initiatives, advance institution By Audrey Waldrop Cavalier Daily Senior Writer

J. Milton Adams, who has served as the University’s vice provost for academic programs since 2003, became its inaugural senior vice provost last week as part of a strategic planning initiative aimed at tackling the challenges of higher education. In a letter to President Teresa A. Sullivan earlier this week, Board of Visitors members Frank Atkinson and Linwood Rose addressed long-term concerns about the University’s strength, including the retention of distinguished fac-

ulty, the maintenance of affordable and accessible academic programs and decisions about how technology could be used to simultaneously lower costs and enhance quality of instruction. Atkinson and Rose are co-chairs of the Board’s Special Committee on Strategic Planning, Adams said the initial focus of his position would be to coordinate the University’s strategic planning process. “My job will be coordinating that process and moving it along and making sure that people who are interested [in promoting the University’s advancement]

have that opportunity,” Adams said, noting he would appeal to faculty, students and alumni in the future for ideas to ensure the University continue in the correct direction. John Simon, the executive vice president and provost, recommended Adams for the new position. “Milton Adams has a track record of success in various posts at the University, both in his role as an administrator and as a member of the faculty,” Simon wrote in an email Thursday. “He

The new position and the University’s entire development of strategy has been informed by Sullivan’s multi-year goals

presented two years ago at the onset of her term as president. Since Sullivan’s attempted ouster in June, conversations about the University’s direction have increased dramatically. Reporting to the president and provost, Adams will coordinate and guide strategic planning, assist in the setting of academic priorities and work to implement the strategies developed, Simon said.

Sullivan said the appointment will ensure continuity, and Simon said it will ensure the strategic plans developed do not get shelved, ignored or outdated. Instead, he said Adams will be able to foster continual development. “I have been working this year at building a team in the Provost office, rather than have individuals who are solely responsible for a specific area of activity,” he said.


Adams soon will be working closely with a University consultant who will review the school’s institutional standing as part of an assessment of the competitive planning environment, Simon said, adding, “this will provide the foundation upon which the institution will develop its strategy.” In accordance with his new responsibilities, Adams will receive a 10 percent increase in

salary. The provost has begun the process of establishing a search committee for his replacement. Adams vowed to empower faculty and students with the opportunities to share their ideas with him. “It’s about how do we, as a place where great scholars, researchers, get together and teach students... how do we think about what we should be teaching and what we should be learning.”

White noise

“Tis the season again for litter everywhere, vomit on the sidewalks, and busting the side view mirrors off the cars on JPA! Entitlement mentality, and no worries of repercussions from UVA’s private militia. You’re in the club now. You can get away with just about anything.”

“Sean,” responding to Lizzy Turner’s Sept. 7 article, “Students run afoul of stricter noise ordinance enforcement”

Local residents and students should talk out noise expectations rather than resorting to the police Fifty-five decibels is not very loud; the University guide for off-campus housing describes the mark as “the level of loud talking.” This is what passes for noise pollution in Charlottesville – although some, like music critic Simon Reynolds, argue public noise generates “civic vitality.” We don’t need to shout about definitions, but it’s worth saying that locals should not take a vendetta to uphold current policy and instead allow police forces to allocate resources in ways more beneficial. To give a history: The current regulation restricts individuals from being louder than 55 decibels during the hours from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. In August, City Council considered legislation that would make fines higher and charges more severe for such violations; Council rejected it. But it did prescribe that police take a harder stance on the issue. Such vigilance has been evident – there were eight noise citations near the University during the first weekend of school. Some groups have found this cracking down agreeable. The Daily Progress wrote a late August editorial saying Council was right to ask for tougher enforcement. The Venable Neighborhood Association, which has for years championed tougher noise policy, spoke through its president, Erica Goldfarb, who said in an

Featured online reader comment

interview “we just want [students to] behave better as neighbors.” But maybe it’s not students who are being bad neighbors. The Daily Progress decided to take an adult point of view: “College students can adjust their schedules for partying, or abuse their bodies with too little sleep if they choose. Neighbors might not have any such option — or desire.” Yet, speaking as students, we can say the party schedule is pretty much set. On a couple streets on weekend nights there will be houses amped up. A noise complaint would have to incriminate much of the student body to be cited correctly. Nor should this become a debate about who was here first – the University was rowdy before all of us came here – and neither is this an apologetic for the culture of drinking. Instead, we should acknowledge that noise complaints are often arbitrary and will only chip away at students – who are not always the wealthy lot they are put out to be – and do little else besides putting an unnecessary burden on the police. Besides noise, there are also crimes in Charlottesville, and we should not have to draw police attention when a civil conversation could have more of an impact than any fine or telephone call.

Letters to the editor Written by the victors

Heading into the Miller Center of Public Affairs’ “UVA Secrets and Traditions” event on Friday, I hardly expected to hear the vindictive exhibition which was delivered by Adjunct Professor Corrine Field to the assembled crowd of students and scholars. After some brief remarks by Miller Center Scholar Doug Blackmon, Field took the microphone and went on an angry and fragmented tirade about the history of discrimination against blacks and women at the University. While these are issues w o r t hy o f d i s c u s s i o n , Field’s approach was far from the solemn tribute one would expect for such a delicate subject. In between her lines, she made frequent pauses to laugh sarcastically, though


it was not clear if the hilarity was meant to be directed at the historical leaders of the university, or the actual discrimination itself. Either way it inappropriately maligned a painful topic, and no one present joined in the laughter. History should not be ignored, yet I find it saddening that someone who is not an alumna of this fine institution would use a platform here to treat these sensitive matters with so little respect, and in front a crowd of first-years no less. These students are just beginning their undergraduate careers, and they deserve better than listening to their school being condemned with such callous flair.

Virginia storms back for win

Cavaliers overcome offensive miscues with strong defense, late touchdown to beat Penn State, 17-16 By Daniel Weltz

Cavalier Daily Senior Associate Editor The Virginia football team needed the perfect storm to overcome a laundry list of

mistakes against Penn State Saturday. Two game-changing catches by sophomore tight end Jake McGee and four missed field goals by Nittany Lion sophomore kicker Sam Ficken provided the necessary jolt to

lift Virginia to a heart-throbbing — albeit far from flawless — 17-16 victory. It took the most missed field goals by an opposing kicker since 1964 and the fewest rushing yards in a win since 2002,

but when an elated Cavalier team stormed the field following Ficken’s final miss, the team was 2-0 for the second consecutive season under head coach Please see Football, Page B3

While the rest of the 56,087 present in Scott Stadium stood transfixed by the rainsprinkled figure of Penn State kicker Sam Ficken, Virginia coach Mike London averted his eyes. “I don’t know if I watched it, to tell you the truth,” the weary but contented coach said of Ficken’s game-ending miss from 42 yards away. From a pure football standpoint, it’s remarkable that anyone, much less London, could bear another second of a calamitously sloppy game. Billed as a marquee matchup on a national stage between an ascending ACC power and an iconic program thirsty for some semblance of redemption, Virginia’s 17-16 “victory” rather quickly devolved into a comedy of errors worthy of a “Three Stooges” skit. Expecting a more polished brand of football compared to the always-jittery opening weekend, spectators instead cringed through stumbles, fumbles and execution with which even poor Savannah St. could find fault. “We are just lucky to come out with a win in that situation,” Virginia sophomore safety Anthony Harris[c] said. “Mistakes are going to come, but you just try to limit them in the best way you can.” No, nobody got his money’s worth from this highly hyped Penn State showdown.

Cavs run streak to seven Seventh-ranked team beats George Mason, James Madison to continue hot stretch By Michael Eilbacher Cavalier Daily Associate Editor

The No. 7 Virginia women’s soccer team made a strong statement this weekend by dominating both of its opponents to close out its non-conference schedule on an impressive roll. The team shut out George Mason 3-0 Friday before downing James Madison 4-1 Sunday. Virginia (7-1-0) has now won seven consecutive games —its longest winning streak since 2004 — in impressive fashion, allowing only two total goals while controlling play on both ends of the field throughout the streak. “I thought it was a great result,” sophomore midfielder Danielle Colaprico said. “We’re


really bringing it together after the first [3-1 loss against Penn State]. We have great chemistry and I think it’s going help us in the long run.” The team led wire-to-wire Friday night, pressuring an overmatched George Mason (4-4-0) team from the very start. Junior defender Molly Menchel got the Cavaliers on the board in the 18th minute, taking a cross from freshman star forward Makenzy Doniak in the box to give Virginia a 1-0 advantage. Menchel was not done as she added a second goal just three minutes later by launching a shot from more than 20 yards out for her third goal of the season. Sophomore forward Kaili Torres got in on the action in the 30th minute, firing a shot

sophomore goalkeeper Spencer LaCivita a relatively easy night by holding the Blue Devils to only two shots on goal, neither of which was much of a threat to LaCivita. The Cavalier backline consistently thwarted Duke’s combination plays and only saw slight signs of trouble on set plays such as throw-ins and corners. The Cavalier attack also looked sharp in the game as they continually pushed the tempo and connected their passes down the pitch. Virginia totaled 11 shots in the game, but an extremely experienced and well-organized Duke defense — anchored by two preseason All-Americans — kept the Cavaliers off the score sheet in the first half. The Cavaliers will return to the pitch this Tuesday when they face Mount Saint Mary at home at 7 p.m. —compiled by Ben Baskin

Bates’ late goal downs Duke, 1-0

The Virginia men’s soccer team opened their ACC schedule with a hard-fought 1-0 victory against Duke Friday night. The Cavaliers (2-2, 1-0 ACC) were in control for the majority of the contest but could not find the breakthrough goal for nearly 60 minutes. In the 58th minute, Virginia finally earned the go-ahead goal after sophomore Eric Bird found classmate Chris Somerville behind the Blue Devil (1-3, 0-1 ACC) defense on the left wing. Somerville proceeded to cross the ball into the box where, after a slight scramble, it ended up at the foot of freshman forward Marcus SalandyDefour. Salandy-Defour then acutely tapped a pass to senior tri-captain forward Will Bates, who struck the ball into the goal to give Virginia the lead for good. The Cavalier defense gave

from inside the box to give the team a 3-0 halftime lead. Using their sizable advantage to give much-needed experience to some of their younger players, the Cavaliers rotated in 11 different players from the bench and continued to control play, taking 160shots in the half despite failing to find the net. “I think they come in and stick right in there, and work well with us, even though they’re coming off the bench,” Colaprico said of the substitutes. Sunday’s match proved to be more challenging as James Madison (2-4-0) pressured Virginia for possession throughout the game. The lone goal of the first half [c] came from Col-

sequence to sequence, and yet their potential is still nowhere near fully tapped. Whatever it is, it was all on display against the Blue Devils (1-3, 0-1 ACC) Friday night in front of 4,230 spectators at Klöckner Stadium, the largest crowd since 2009. The win — Virginia’s first at home against Duke since 2005 — proved to be a statement game for the inexperienced Cavaliers. “It’s a big win,” sophomore midfielder Chris Somerville said. “It shows everybody in the ACC we’re serious. We’re a young team, but we’re serious. You know we’re going to be competitive.” Through the Cavaliers first four games — all coming against opponents who were ranked at some point this season — they have shown that, if nothing else, they will certainly compete.

Thank God It’s ‘Final Fridays’ The�Fralin�Museum�of�Art’s�popular�monthly�social�event showcases�fine�art,�prides�food,�entertainment Every last Friday of the month, U.Va. students, faculty and museum members swarm the Fralin Museum of Art for Final Fridays. On a typical day, only a few students and members of the University wander through the museum, but these Fridays hold a particular appeal. Starting at 6 p.m., the museum opens its doors to host the monthly social event featuring food, drinks, entertainment and, of course, art. Even better — especially for those college students living on a tight budget — the entire event is free with your U.Va. email address. The museum uses the events to promote its new exhibitions, as well as its

permanent collections. At the most recent Final Fridays, four new exhibitions were featured, including Ancient Masters of Modern Styles, The Valley of the Shadow, Jean Hélion and Making Science Visible. Attendees can enjoy each of the exhibitions, while munching on cheese and crackers, cookies, strawberries and bean dip or sipping on free alcoholic beverages. Admittedly, I was most excited to attend for the food, but the collections captured my attention almost immediately. One of the most interesting exhibits was The Chinese Ink, which explores how the ancient Chinese tradition of ink painting created a wealth

art and influenced many later artists. The paintings’ delicate renderings of mist, mountains and rivers drew me in and sparked discussion between myself and the other attendees. The event coordinators also do a terrific job of integrating into the evenings a performance art piece that interacts with an exhibit inside the museum’s walls. The most recent Final Fridays showcased the Pride, a University CIO of students performing traditional choreographed Chinese lion dances. At first, everyone seemed somewhat reluctant to leave the food and excellent art in the museum to head outdoors for the performance, but as the drum

This Week in Arts History The Beatles’ Revolver tops American charts Today, in 1966, Revolver, the Beatles’ seventh and arguably strongest studio album, reached No. 1 on the American charts, where it would remain for a whopping six weeks. Widely regarded as one of the best recording achievements in the history of music, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Revolver third in its countdown of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time in 2003. The classic record features a number of well-known hits, such as “Eleanor Rigby” — a personal favorite — and “Yellow Submarine”, which brought many younger fans to the sounds of the quartet long after they had broken up. Another highlight of this recording is “Tomorrow Never Knows.” As one of the first standards in the then-emerging genre of psychedelic music, this track was light-years ahead of its time. The Beatles used a variety of techniques to create this terrific tune’s unique sound, including heavily processed vocals and backmasking, in which the band purposefully recorded the guitar track backward to create a surreal effect. The result was a wonderfully strange song which headlined a wonderfully ground-breaking album. If you haven’t taken the time to listen to Revolver, put this newspaper down and do so immediately. —compiled by Ben Willis

This Sunday at the Jefferson Theater, three-time Grammy award winner Steve Earle will take the stage with his unique brand of folk-styled country rock. Earle, now finished with his tour for his new album, I’ll Never Get out of This World Alive, will surely tug at your America-loving heartstrings. Apart from his successful singing career, Earle is also a successful writer, having written short stories, a play, and a novel. Fans of The Wire might also recognise him as the character Walon, a recovering heroin addict. Earle’s performance will surely be worth the ticket price.


started to beat inside the hall, everyone was drawn outside. The exhibitions will change during the course of the year, but Final Fridays are guaranteed to be a relaxing way to appreciate art and the company of others. Everyone should attend Final Fridays, but the Fralin warrants more than a monthly visit. Even on ordinary days, you’ll find something interesting you hadn’t noticed before. So although the next Final Fridays may not be for a few more weeks, stopping by to see these exhibitions will be well worth it. The new exhibitions will be at the Fralin until Dec. 16.

Monday, September 10, 2012 | The Cavalier Daily

Football | Defensive stands save error-prone Virginia Continued from page B1 Mike London. “We weren’t clicking on all cylinders but we did enough to eke out a win here,” London said. “[Penn State’s] a very good team, a very talented team.” The Virginia offense was anemic for more than three quarters, committing four turnovers — including one on the first play from scrimmage — and seven penalties while gaining just 32 yards on 25 rushing attempts. Junior quarterback Michael Rocco was temporarily replaced by sophomore Phillip Sims. But with five minutes remaining, the offense made perhaps its most baffling series of mistakes in an afternoon filled with them, burning their final timeout to set up a third down play only to commit a false start penalty out of the huddle. Yet somehow, Virginia still found itself just 78 yards away from stealing a victory from Penn State. As heavy rain began to fall on

the 56,087 fans at Scott Stadium on 3rd-and-16 from the Virginia 22, the Cavaliers struck lightning at just the right moment. “The number one thing was the composure of the players, they executed,” offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said. “They made it happen, they battled.” Rocco hung in the pocket long enough to allow his receivers time to get downfield while Penn State brought the rush. As the pocket collapsed, Rocco drifted to his left and launched a high, lofting pass to McGee, who pinned the ball against his shoulder pads for a 44 yard gain while being dragged down by a pair of Penn State defenders to draw a defensive pass interference penalty. “I kind of got pushed up in the pocket and I just saw Jake,” Rocco said. “Whenever Jake’s standing there, I just trust him and I threw the ball up to him and he made a play.” Six plays later, Rocco found McGee again in the middle of the end-zone for the go-ahead six-yard touchdown pass with

1:28 remaining to complete a 12-play, 86-yard drive that rendered more than three quarters of offensive futility a moot point. When it counted most, the offense came through. “We’ve got competitors, we’ve got winners on this team,” Rocco said. “We tasted what it was like to have a great season last year and come up a little short. So we had guys that were determined to get the job done even if we had things go against us today.” Nothing came easy for Virginia Saturday. As the clock ticked down the final 90 seconds in the pouring rain, Penn State drove closer to a go-ahead score. Senior quarterback Matthew McGloin methodically brought the Nittany Lions into field goal range while Ficken looked on knowing that the most difficult day of his collegiate career would be defined solely by his final kick. With a single second remaining, Ficken could not overcome the weather, the pressure, and the Cavaliers’ kick rush as he pulled

his 42-yard attempt wide left, sealing an improbable, imperfect and potentially season-changing win for Virginia. “For us to stay calm and collected to drive down the field and get that score to go ahead, it’s just a great feeling,” sophomore wide receiver Darius Jennings said. “It proves that when times get rough, we can show up in the clutch.” It was Jennings whose 24-yard reception on the team’s final drive set up McGee’s decisive touchdown. Meanwhile, a Nittany Lion team that had dominated play for most of the afternoon fell to 0-2 [C] for the first [C] time since 2001[C]. Penn State faced humiliation and uncertainty during one of the most tumultuous offseasons in college football history entering the season. Saturday, a team that had lost so much over the last year played with nothing to lose. Penn State converted two fourth downs and attempted a flea-flicker in their 17-play, 75-yard opening drive to take a

7-0 lead. Despite spending much of the afternoon with possession of the ball in Virginia territory, Penn State would not score again until the fourth quarter. A Virginia defense that had failed to impress in the season-opening win against Richmond singlehandedly kept the game close. In each quarter, the Cavalier defense took the field for the first time already deep in its own territory¬¬¬¬. Each time, the unit stood firm. In the four drives following a turnover¬¬¬ — with Penn State starting on average at its opponent’s 25-yard line — the Nittany Lions lost 14 yards and scored just three points. “We all just stuck together,” senior defensive end Ausar Walcott said. “We had faith in each other, and we believed that we were going to get the ball back for the offense and the offense was going to drive down and put it in for us.” Virginia will next face Georgia Tech Saturday when the team will attempt to improve to 3-0 for the first time since 2005.

Metzinger | Late drama personifies college football’s beauty Continued from page B1 thing we truly love about college football. An analysis of how this “bad” football game doubles as an instant classic and testament to the inherent goodness of college football must necessarily begin at the end. The Nittany Lions were winding up for the deathblow, up 16-10 with a mere five minutes left and squeezing the remaining enthusiasm out of an already exasperated home crowd. In tune with how the afternoon had proceeded, junior quarterback Michael Rocco — freshly reinserted into the lineup after Philip Sims flopped worse than an M. Night Shyamalan movie during his two-drive cameo — burned his team’s precious final timeout. Virginia faced a thirdand-16 and its last chance to steal a game in which it committed four turnovers, 10 penalties and countless crimes against basic football common sense. Immediately, the Penn State pass rush chased Rocco out of the pocket and into a desperate heave down field. By now, the entire school knows that heave incredulously settled in between the arm and shoul-

der of double-covered sophomore tight end Jake McGee. McGee’s catch, coupled with his subsequent go-ahead touchdown grab with 1:28 remaining, illustrated the beauty of college football when the action breaks from the expected script. No playbooks lists “dangerous 44-yard jump balls to the third- or fourth-string tight end” as a viable option. In fact, thirdstring tight ends barely even play, much less snag four balls for 99 yards and emerge as potent offensive threats. And no quarterback dreams of directing his team on a masterful 12-play, 86 yard comeback drive after turning the ball over all day and even briefly riding the bench. But, whether by fate, skill or sheer luck, all those improbable outcomes combined to form a riveting conclusion to a zany game for the Virginia offense. Because of it, Virginia was able to demonstrate a degree of resilience uncommon for a headstrong group of teenagers and twenty-somethings. “We’ve got competitors,” Rocco said. “We’ve got winners on this team. We did our best just to overcome.” Although the offense garnered all the post-game attention for a

rivetingly chaotic performance, the defense received far too little credit for executing the most extensive bail-out job since TARP. Time and again the Virginia offense failed to supply their defensive teammates with sufficient rest, either by fumbling the ball deep in its own territory or refusing to run the ball enough to sustain long, time-consuming drives. With few exceptions, the defense answered the call against a big and brutish Penn State offensive front. Steve Greer and the front seven limited Penn State to 2.9 yards per carry, the besieged young secondary forestalled several potentially big Penn State plays, and the defense stiffened when it counted — especially after those turnovers. Following the four giveaways, Virginia allowed a grand total of -14 yards and three points. “I think we’re resilient,” Greer said. “We did some of that last season, and I think every part of our program is geared towards that. No matter what, we’re no easy out.” Finally, there’s Penn State. Put it this way: If I declared before Saturday that a major college team would lose in gut-wrench-

ing fashion mainly because its kicker missed four manageable field goals and an extra point, is Penn State not the first team to come to mind? Needless to say — and seriously, after months of exhaustive coverage, little remains to be said — Penn State is certainly in a tailspin that begs the question of whether “Murphy’s Law” should become “O’Brien’s Law.” No more daunting a challenge exists for a coach than encouraging players after losing a winnable game, especially one dealing with the perpetually looming cloud of scrutiny and hostility currently afflicting Penn State. And yet, O’Brien has inspired his team to play not like a team with nothing to play for but rather like one with nothing to lose. “We just have to get back to work on Monday and keep working hard,” O’ Brien said. “These kids left it all out there today, there’s no question about that, and I really appreciate their effort.” Senior quarterback Matt McGloin epitomized the courageous doggedness of the Nittany Lions, shaking off a nasty shoulder injury to nearly will his team to a monumental road

victory. But moral victories are figments of the imagination in college football: O’Brien and his players are still likely hovering between despondence and sheer depression. Hopefully, though, they know that even as their program has come to signify the basest elements of college football, their determination helped demonstrate the sport’s noblest. In one sense, Saturday’s game represented a disappointment, a dismal contest that cast aspersion on both teams’ ability to compete in their respective conferences. Even Virginia offensive coordinator Bill Lazor craved a higher-quality game. “We wanted it to be pretty,” Lazor said. “Unfortunately, today was ugly as far as the penalties and the turnovers. It’s amazing as a team we were able to find a way to win it.” But as more than 50,000 people braced to watch that final kick, the ugliness didn’t really matter. Saturday offered a taste of what disciples of the sport truly value the most: compelling human drama and authentic inspiration. Through their travails, Virginia and Penn State provided both — and that’s what college football is all about.

W Soccer | Doniak’s penalty kick opens floodgates in blowout Continued from page B1 aprico [c], who took a pass from senior midfielder Julia Roberts and hit the upper corner from 20 yards out for her third goal of the season. The Dukes threatened to even the score on several occasions as they produced multiple counter-attack opportunities the rest of the first half.

“We figured that we really needed to get stuck into our tackles and work harder to get the ball and keep the ball,” Colaprico said of the team’s adjustment at halftime. “When we keep the ball, we’re unstoppable, and they’re chasing after us and they can’t keep up with us.” Finally, with James Madison continuing to apply pressure

into the second half, senior midfielder Katie Menzie found the equalizer five minutes into the period to tie the game at 1-1 and put the Cavaliers’ win streak in jeopardy. In the 66th minute, however, Doniak put the Cavaliers back on top by nailing a penalty shot and opening the floodgates for the Virginia offense. Junior forward Gloria Douglas

took a through ball from Colaprico inside the box and slotted it home in the 79th minute. Just four minutes later, junior midfielder Kate Norbo headed in a corner kick from junior forward Amber Fry to seal the blowout victory. “James Madison gave us a battle, and we expected that; and certainly in the second half it got interesting when they

tied things up,” assistant coach Ron Raab said. “But I think our kids responded quite well, and raised their level, and obviously finished a couple of good chances in the second half, and came away with the win.” The team will next put its seven-game winning streak on the line when it hosts N.C. State Thursday night to open ACC play.

Baskin | Cavaliers’ energy, determination demand applause Continued from page B1 sive run with the ball down the center of the pitch. Before Dimas could get a shot off, though, a much larger Blue Devil defender impeded his path and sent the midfielder flipping through the air, producing an audible gasp from the audience. The gasps quickly turned to cheers, however, after Dimas indomitably popped back onto his feet, galvanizing his teammates. The Cavaliers kept up the strong attacking play early, controlling possession and tempo en route to a 6-2 shot and 3-0 corner advantage in the first half. The game remained scoreless at the break, though, because of a very experienced and talented Duke defense that featured two-

preseason All-American’s — junior center back Sebastien Ibeagha, and senior goalkeeper James Belshaw. “I think we did a good job of keeping the ball,” coach George Gelnovatch said. “However, [Duke was] very tough to break down. They were tenacious, strong, athletic. They move well [and] they close well.” The Cavaliers did not become disheartened after their first-half efforts went for naught, though, and continued their methodical attack in the second period. Propelled by senior tri-captain forward Will Bates — who entered into the game in the 34th minute and is still working himself into shape after missing part of last season due to a knee injury — the Cavaliers were finally able to

cash in on an opportunity in the 58th minute. The play began when sophomore midfielder Eric Bird found Somerville curving his run in behind the Duke defense on the left wing. Somerville then crossed the ball into the middle of the box for Bates, but a Duke defender’s foot changed its destination. Fortuitously, freshman midfielder Marcus Salandy-Defour ended up with the ball near the right post. With one Duke defender attempting to guard two Cavaliers, Salandy-Defour shrewdly tapped it to Bates, who one-touched a shot into the back of the net to give Virginia the lead. “It was kind of just a scramble around,” Bates said. “The


defender was kind of split between us two. [Salandy-Defour] picked me out, put me in a good spot. My thing was just to put it on target and it ended up being a pretty clinical finish.” The game’s most impressive unit, however, may have been the Cavalier defense, which set a physical tone throughout the contest and rarely let Duke have any real opportunities to score. Fortified by redshirt junior midfielder Sean Murnane — the Cavaliers’ third captain and the defensive starting unit’s only upperclassman — Virginia’s defense held Duke to six shots, only two of which were on goal and none of which seriously threatened sophomore goalkeeper Spencer LaCivita. The unit showed great resil-

iency after both Murnane and freshman defender Zach Carroll had to exit the game with injuries in the second half. Sophomore Grant Silvester and junior Kevin McBride filled the vacancies seamlessly, though, as the Cavaliers continually held off late efforts from the Blue Devils to equalize. “The defense was huge,” Somerville said. “They were clutch, two guys coming off our bench and just making clutch plays.” It was an impressive win for a young team and a propitious start to their ACC season. And even with the sizable crowd, I still urge more students to come out and watch this team play. I am forced in silence to live vicariously through your cheering.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s not being broke that’s a fearful thing but fear of being broke. It’s more productive (and lucrative) to remember that you’ve always made due and to fling yourself into your projects with reckless abandon. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Loved ones need you to listen closely. Put aside your insecurities, and give yourself and your ears over to the information coming at you. Doors and hearts open to you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). On your quest for love, you may overlook the buried treasure in your own back yard. Those familiar to you adore you. How adored? Plan special interactions with your nearest and dearest -- you’ll find out.


CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re so confident. This is proven by your ability to listen to just about any school of thought without loosing your cool. To each his own! Now that’s true sophistication of thought. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You can’t tell from whence your next dea will spring. Snub snobbery. Pay attention to amateurs. Assume everyone -- yes, everyone -- has something important, even essential, to contribute.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Without excess emotional baggage, you’ll be able to embrace the opportunities of the day. Now, how do you get rid of the baggage? Take control of your mind. Tell yourself simply to drop that garbage at the curb. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Stars favor you as you dance through precarious lines of reason and whimsical patterns of thought. Being

sure is so dull. Insatiable questioning leads to enlightenment. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You conveniently forget all of the gaffes and slights made by someone you, for the most part, like very much. That’s called friendship. Others extend you the same courtesy in the future. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s more fun to hang around people who are very much like you than it is to rub shoulders with the people who are like you aspire to be. However, the latter is more profitable. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You want to stand out and blend in all at the same time. In a weird way, you do it. And, better still, you’re paid for this amazing ability. Tonight offers an intriguing introduction. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Today is a study in ordered chaos. It’s all too much to absorb at once, so take notes. Later, reviewing some of the details of this madness will bring beautiful inspiration. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You stumble across a piece of loaded information. Should you discuss it with the people involved or keep it to yourself? There’s no rush. Let the omens guide you. Then follow their wisdom. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 10). Over the 10 weeks, you have the courage to take on an adversary you never thought you could beat. A big check in October will help. Moving on to more peaceful endeavors, December spotlights new hobbies, passions and people. January brings changes -- more love, busy days and fun. Gemini and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 40, 2, 17 and 39.
