University must raise $60 million for new building, Wilbur says
Fireworks bring revenue, debate to Mount Pleasant
By Aaron McMann Editor-in-Chief
The move is not only professional but personal to Green. In 2010, her son Matthew was the victim of a hit-andrun, drunk-driving accident, which left him a paraplegic. Matthew was sideswiped and dragged more than 1000 feet. Green said in 2010 “the next two years would determine if he ever walks again.” Now, exactly two years after that tragic accident, her son will be starting over with her in a new country, new school and new life.
Ending months of speculation, Central Michigan University received word this week that it would receive an expected $30 million from the state for its proposed Biosciences Building. Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, appearing at Wayne State University in Detroit Monday, signed into legislation a $304 million capital outlay bill that will fund 18 projects at places of higher education throughout the state. Among them was CMU’s proposed $90 million Biosciences Building, a facility that would complement Brooks Hall and house lab rooms and teaching space for biotechnology and medical classes. “We’re very pleased. Were pleased two years ago, and we’re pleased again,” said Kathy Wilbur, vice president for development and external relations. “It’s a very important building … the next project on our list. It was important to secure that funding from the state.” Approval of the $30 million was in limbo for the better part of the last year after former Gov. Jennifer Granholm approved 23 college infrastructure projects in December 2010, just before leaving office. Last August, it was reported that Snyder requested preliminary designs for consideration, and it was unknown whether CMU would receive the public funds requested. $30 million is the most a school can receive from the state for a specific capital project. In addition to the $30 million from the state, CMU will now have to come up with $60 million more, through its capital budget and fundraising efforts. Wilbur said the university submitted a project cost of $89.5 million to the state. Vice President for Facilities Management Steve Lawrence said in February that construction would begin on the building, planned for the space currently occupied by the Washington Court apartments, once state funding was secured. “I’m a big believer that until the legislature determines what they are going to do and the governor has signed it, we can’t be doing it,” Wilbur said.

The bill, known as the Michigan Fireworks Safety Act and signed by Gov. Rick Snyder, took effect Jan. 1. It allows for the sale and use of all class C consumer-grade fireworks throughout the state. Shari Hall of Newaygo is running the Jake’s Fireworks tent on Mission Street. “I’m just glad they opened it here,” Hall said. “Everyone was just going out of state to buy them anyways.” Jonah Ratu of Mount Pleasant, a junior at MidMichigan Community Col-
lege, was the first customer to Hall’s stand this season. Ratu said he likes to set fireworks off around the Fourth of July with his friends at their bonfires. He said he always traveled to Indiana to get his fireworks before, but now he’s happy to buy them in Michigan. “I’m just glad it’s legal now,” Ratu said. “I don’t think it’s dangerous, if you’re responsible enough to handle fireworks and you know what you’re doing.”

Denise Green to pioneer diversity at Toronto’s Ryerson University By Mike Nichols Managing Editor
Denise O’Neil Green is about to embark on an opportunity she said comes once in a lifetime. Green, Central Michigan University’s assistant vice president for institutional diversity since 2007, will be leaving CMU at the end of July for a new position at Ryerson University in Toronto. In an email sent Friday morning, Provost Gary Shapiro announced Green
had resigned to accept the position of assistant vice president/ vice provost of equity, diversity and inclusion at Denise Green the Canadian university. “I am very grateful for Dr. Green’s leadership in championing cultural change in the areas of equity, diversity and inclusion at CMU,” Shapiro said. “We thank her for her tireless efforts and
wish her and her family well as they embark on this new professional endeavor.” Shapiro said he knew Green had been thinking about this decision for a while. For now, an interim will be hired to fill the role. CMU will begin searching for a new candidate in the fall, he said. Green said she had always wanted to promote diversity and live in a different country. This move will allow her to do both. She sees the new job as an opportunity for her to
pioneer a diversity office at a college in one of the most diverse cities in the world. “It would be one of the first in the country,” Green said. “What is in my future is an opportunity to work with diversity from a very different point of view, from another country.” Green would not reveal the pay increase amount she would receive at the new school but said it was “a significant increase” compared to what she received at CMU. In 2011, Green earned $128,981.
CMU’s 1.9% tuition increase lowest among Michigan public universities By Catey Traylor Senior Reporter
In April, the Central Michigan University Board of Trustees approved a 1.96-percent tuition increase, a number that continues to be the lowest increase among public universities. The University of MichiganAnn Arbor just set its tuition increase at 2.8-percent, while
Snyder OKs $30 million for CMU Biosciences
Michigan Technological University had a 3.9-percent increase, and Michigan State University raised its rates by 3.5 percent. In April, University President George Ross said tuition increases remained low because of sacrifices made by university faculty and staff members. “Our tuition rates over the last three years have been very
modest. Our faculty and staff have made compromises like taking a year and a half, even two-year pay, freezes,” he said. “That is why we can be so modest (with this increase).” During debates regarding tuition amongst Board of Trustees members at U of M-Ann Arbor as well as MSU, some board members argued against tuition increases. According to The Detroit
News, regents Denise Ilitch, Laurence Deitch and Andrea Fischer Newman argued against the tuition increase at U of M, saying students were already paying too much. “Tuition continues to skyrocket,” Ilitch said before the vote. “The burden on our students continues to be brutal. ... This is unacceptable. The constant disinvestment in education in this state is in-
excusable and appalling. We must invest in education on all fronts.” Trustee Diann Woodard, president of the Detroit Public Schools administrators and supervisors union, voted against the 3.5-percent tuition increase at MSU, telling The News: “I just, in my heart of hearts, can’t vote for another (tuition) increase.” A TUITION | 2

Grandparents U brings together 71 children and 59 grandparents
By Jeff Ketcham Staff Reporter
Senior citizens and children joined Central Michigan University students on campus last week as part of the the fifth annual Grandparents U event. Grandparents and their grandchildren stayed in dorms and attended classes for a taste of the college life. Classes ranged from crime scene science, surviving the Hunger Games and cultures of the world. Anne Sanders, assistant director of Alumni Relations at CMU, said there were 59 grandparents and 71 grandkids at the event this year. Mark VanderMeulen came to Grandparents U with his grandson, Mason Osborne. They have been coming to the event for the past four years, VanderMeulen said, because they enjoy the at-

mosphere, the classes and coming back to CMU. “This is a great program for getting the kids here,” he said. “(Mason) knows his way around, as a 12-year-old, better than some adults.” This was the first year that Joyce Coe was able to bring both her granddaughters, Maddie and Haley Fox. Coe said it was a wonderful experience spent with her granddaughters as they learn what college life is like. “They’re learning the whole college life,” she said. “I think it’s an entry into what you’re going to be doing; staying in the dorms, eating their food, learning, going to class, trying to make it to class on time, learning the map and how to find where you’re going.” Fox said she was more excited to be in the college atmosphere than anything else.
“Everything about being in a college is fun,” she said. “I like staying in dorms and getting into a different place for a while.” Sandra Zilinicik and her granddaughters Katie and Sarah Zilinicik have been coming to Grandparents U for years. They said it helps connect them with each other and the school. “We’ve been having a really good time; every year we come has been something different,” Sandra Zilinicik said. Katie said she feels more comfortable at CMU, thanks to Grandparents U. “It seems like a school I would like to go to,” she said. “I think people should try this with their grandparents. It’s fun, and they would have a good time.”
The 1.96-percent increase translates to $365 per undergraduate credit hour. Out-ofstate students will pay $789 per credit hour. “We’ve looked forward beyond just the immediate year,” Vice President of Finances and Administrative Services David Burdette said during the Board of Trustees meeting in April. “These numbers reflect that.”
Last year, CMU also had the lowest increase among the 15 Michigan public universities, when tuition was increased for the 2011-12 academic year by 3.47 percent, or $12 per credit hour. Tuition for the 2012-13 school year at Wayne State University is expected to be determined today.
“Brooks Hall is badly overcrowded,” Davison said. “It will significantly improve our educational opportunities. We’re really happy.” Snyder also approved $30 million for a new science lab, classroom and office building at Grand Valley State University and $30 million for a bioengineering facility at Michigan State University. “These investments allow higher education in Michigan
to stay on the cutting edge,” Snyder said in a released statement. “Our colleges and universities play a critical role in Michigan’s future. I am pleased that we are able to support these worthwhile projects.” Included in the bill was $8.9 million to Mid-Michigan Community College to unify its Mount Pleasant campus.
in so many different ways. Even though he is a paraplegic now, he is my miracle son, my hero.” Under Green’s leadership, the diversity department received more than $1.8 million in grant funding to support low income and first generation college students, opened
the Center for Inclusion and Diversity and established an inner group dialogue component at CMU. “I’m very proud of the relationships I’ve established with close partnerships within the departments,” she said.
The Supreme Court Monday struck down most of a controversial Arizona immigration law in a split decision, while keeping its most hotly contested provision in place. The Court unanimously upheld the 2010 law’s centerpiece requiring that state law enforcement officials determine the immigration status of anyone they stop or arrest if there is reasonable suspicion to do so. Critics worry the provision will inevitably lead to racial profiling, calling it the “show me your papers” provision. However, a majority of justices ruled that the law’s three other provisions, which would have imposed penalties on illegal immigrants for activities such as seeking work in Arizona, interfered with the federal government’s role in immigration. “As a general rule, it is not a crime for a removable alien to be within the United States,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the majority. The ruling is seen by many as a partial victory for President Barack Obama and the Justice Department, which opposed the controversial law and sued the state. Obama released a statement Monday praising the Court’s decision while asking for more action from Congress on immigration. “What this decision makes unmistakably clear is that Congress must act on comprehensive immigration reform,” Obama said in the statement. “A patchwork of state laws is not a solution to our broken immigration system — it’s part of the problem.” Obama, coming off the heels of his recent decision

“No American should ever live under a cloud of suspicion just because of what they look like.” President Barack Obama to stop deportations of illegal immigrants who came to America as children, also expressed reservations about the law’s upheld provision. “No American should ever live under a cloud of suspicion just because of what they look like,” Obama said, adding that steps must be taken to ensure Arizona law enforcement officials respect “the civil rights of Americans.” Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney told a crowd of Republican donors in Arizona Monday that he is disappointed in the ruling. “I would have preferred to
see the Supreme Court give more latitude to the states, not less,” Romney said. Romney also said Obama is to blame for a broken immigration system. “He had a Democrat House and a Democrat Senate, but he didn’t (pass immigration reform),” Romney said. “Isn’t it time for the American people to ask him why?” This is not the only controversial ruling expected from the Supreme Court this week. A decision on the constitutionality of Obama’s signature health care reform law is expected on Thursday. email@example.com

Debate has begun over whether the act, which contains a clause barring local governments from relegating fireworks on or 24 hours prior to and after a national holiday, supersedes local noise ordinances. The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports Warren City Council intends to vote Tuesday to place restrictions on when and where fireworks may be used. Warren City Mayor James Fouts told The Macomb Daily, “We’re, in effect, challenging the state law.” Although Mount Pleasant’s noise ordinance policy does not specifically mention fireworks, it reads as such: “It shall be unlawful for any person to make, continue or cause to be made or continued any excessive, unnecessary or unusually loud noise or any noise which annoys, disturbs, injures or endangers the comfort, repose, health, peace or safety of others, within the limits of the city.”

ALDI Food Market breaks ground By Samantha Hegeman Staff Reporter
An ALDI Food Market is under construction at the corner of Bluegrass Road and Encore Drive. The store will be open Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is projected to open in the fall. The discount grocery store has more than 1,000 locations, 53 of which are in Michigan. The closest ALDI to Mount Pleasant is in Saginaw.
CM Life previously reported the Union Township approved the construction plans in September as part of the Union Commons shopping development. The store will be 17,800 squarefeet with 73 parking spaces. ALDI only accepts cash, debit and EBT cards. Customers may rent a shopping cart for a quarter, which will be returned. Customers must bring their own bags. Calls to ALDI did not return requests for comment. email@example.com

Despite miscommunication, SGA legal clinic to return in fall By Samantha Hegeman Staff Reporter
The Central Michigan University Pro Bono Legal Clinic will reopen this fall. Beginning next semester, the clinic will be housed in the Student Organization Center Conference Room in Bovee University Center for four hours, two days a week. Student Government Association President Justin Gawronski said the specific times for the clinic would be
finalized soon. A miscommunication between the SGA and former legal clinic director Christopher Armelagos led some to believe the clinic would be closed for the 2012-2013 academic year. On the clinic’s website, a message would appear saying the clinic was no longer in operation. “I think there was just some miscommunication, because we’ve been waiting to have our big media push until the year starts and stu-
dents are around to use it,” Gawronski said. Last year, students would meet with lawyers in the Center for Profession and Personal Ethics. The clinic, formed by past SGA president Brittany Mouzourakis in 2011, allows students to receive free legal advice from licensed attorneys. Mouzourakis modeled the legal clinic off of Eastern Michigan University’s clinic, which has been in operation for more than six years.
“There is no reason why the clinic should ever close as other universities of comparable size have been able to effectively run their clinics for years,” Mouzourakis said. “The drive to provide vital legal services to students who are in need of help should serve as the driving forces for any administration to fight, tooth and nail, to keep it in existence.” Armelagos said moving the clinic was not a good choice.
“The action of removing the clinic from the ethics center is breath-taking,” he said. “The new SGA administration has destroyed the legal relationships developed over the past two years. The future success of the clinic has been greatly jeopardized.” The attorneys for this year will be CMU faculty members Todd Levitt, William Shirley and Matthew Coffey and Mount Pleasant attorney Lesley Hoenig.
Students may contact sophomore Brittany Wilson, legal clinic director, to make an appointment, or they can walk into the SGA office in the lower level of the UC. “I think it is great that we have free legal counseling available,” Gawronski said. “When students have issues such as with their lease, the legal clinic can outline their options and prevent them from being bullied.” firstname.lastname@example.org

“I learned the importance of making a deadline and staying on top of a beat. ”
By Cecilia Erwin Staff Reporter
The Central Michigan University Journalism Hall of Fame has announced its newest inductees: Brad Flory, Kimberly Clarke, Roger Hart and James Vruggink. All four are former CM Life staff members. Their induction ceremony will be held on Nov. 10 at the Comfort Inn & Suites Hotel and Conference Center, 2424 S. Mission St. Flory, a 1980 graduate, said he was shocked by the announcement. “I’ve never won anything or broken any boundaries, but I’m honored anyway,” he said. Flory wrote for the Gaylord Herald Times, the Cadillac Evening News and spent 27 years at the Jackson Citizen Patriot. In 2008, he started Brad’s Lunch Bunch, a charity supporting food pantries in Jackson County. Flory said his charity has raised $333,000 since then. Flory said he is proud of his role in the Jackson community, crediting his time at CM Life for preparing him for the work. “I learned the importance

of making a deadline and staying on top of a beat,” Flory said. Hart also said his time at CM Life gave him the dedication for a job done right. “It was a great way to learn, make mistakes and learn from those mistakes,” he said. Hart, a 1980 graduate, was a photographer for the Associated Press. He also served as editor-in-chief of the Adrian Daily Telegram and is executive editor of AutoWeek Magazine. In 2006, he published the book, “Postcards From Detroit: Remembering Formula 1 in the Motor City.” Vruggink, a 1970 graduate, was a sports writer for the Ypsilanti Press. He has worked as a sports information director for the University of Michigan, Northwestern University and Purdue University. Vruggink is currently the trademark licensing manager for Purdue University. He helped found the
Northwestern Indiana chapter of the National Football Foundation, an organization that uses football to develop leadership in young people. He is also an executive board member of the Gale Sayers Center, which provides afterschool programs for innercity youth in Chicago. Clarke, a 1982 graduate, wrote for the Cadillac Evening News, the Leader in Corning, N.Y., the Muskegon Chronicle and the Ann Arbor News. She also worked for the University of Michigan in communications and philanthropy. In 1998, she started working for Haas & Associates, a public relations firm. In 2001, she returned to the University of Michigan, where she is currently the director of executive communications. “I’m looking forward to the dinner this fall,” she said. “It’ll be fun to see those guys.” email@example.com

By the end of this week, the Central Michigan University Greek community will have left a mark on campus for years to come. In between Warriner Hall and Grawn Hall, a 12-foot circle will be constructed in the ground, with the letters and founding date of approximately 30 fraternities, sororities and multicultural organizations on campus. The circle is expected to be completed by Friday. Alpena senior and Alpha Sigma Phi President Nick Stepaniak has been involved with the project since last fall. It all began, he said, as a class project for LDR 200 G: Introduction to Leadership. “We had to do a project that bettered the Greek community. My group decided that bettering the relationship between CMU and the CMU Greeks was something that was very important,” he said. “We wanted to be represented on campus, and this project worked out since the concrete was going to get redone anyways.” Since CMU already had
starting point toward a better relationship between Central and the CMU Greeks .” Nick Stepaniak, Alpena senior
construction plans, the overall cost of construction was covered, but each organization that is represented paid a $200 fee to cover the cost of the engraving. “There were 30 spots available in the circle,” Stepaniak said. “We opened the idea to multicultural organizations as well, and we filled all but four or five spots.” It is unknown whether future groups will have an opportunity to join the circle. “I’m hoping that this is a starting point toward a better relationship between Central and the CMU Greeks,” Stepaniak said. “If they’re able to add on, I’d like to see groups that come in the future to be added to the circle.” Director of Student Life Tom Idema taught the LDR 200 G class, in which the idea was born, and said the
project is a great addition to campus. “It’s nice that each Greek organization gets to have their letters on their campus,” he said. “I think there’s a great appreciation for the Greeks (on campus) and (the circle) is a huge acknowledgement from the university for the fact that when we need to count on a group of students to get something done, there is a huge Greek population that we can count on.” Stepaniak said this is the first step in forming a stronger bond between the Greek community and the CMU campus. “This shows Greeks that the university supports us enough to put our letters on campus,” he said. “It’s a stepping stone of what the university and the CMU Greeks could do together in the university.” firstname.lastname@example.org

CMU signs volleyball coach Erik All athletic teams clear NCAA Olson to new 5-year contract benchmark for academic progress By Kristopher Lodes Staff Reporter
A conference championship, NCAA Tournament appearance, five-straight ranked recruiting classes and more than 100 victories has earned Central Michigan volleyball coach Erik Olson a new contract. The new five-year deal replaces his old four-year contract and will keep him coaching the Chippewas through the 2016 season with a base salary of $85,000. Olson led CMU to the pro-
gram’s first Mid-American Conference Tournament Championship and NCAA Tournament appearance in 2011. He also earned career win No. 100 during the season, which ended with a loss in the first round of the NCAA Tournament to eventual runner-up University of Illinois. The new contract comes off the heels of Olson and his staff’s fifth-straight ranked recruiting class. Olson believes that this incoming class, ranked No. 1 in the MAC, is his best. During his eight seasons as
head coach of the Chippewas, Olson has produced 14 All-MAC selections, nine Academic All-MAC s e l e c t i o n s , Eric Olson three All-MAC Freshman selections, one MAC Player of the Year and earned MAC Coach of the Year honors once. email@example.com
CMU spent $10K less on recruiting costs last year than in 2010 By Aaron McMann Editor-in-Chief
Central Michigan University spent $10,000 less on football recruiting costs in 2011 than it did in 2010, according to a recent ESPN. com report. Last season, CMU’s football recruiting budget came in at $174,715, ranking it sixth in the Mid-American Conference. That number is a five percent decrease from the $184,809 spent in 2010, according to the report. The university spent $497,926 in 2011 on recruiting across all of its 14 sports, slightly down from the $502,000 spent in 2010. Derek van der Merwe, chief operating officer and deputy director of athletics, said the recruiting budget accounts for everything from travel for coaches and recruits to cell phone bills. In 2011, $13,000 was spent
on lodging for Dan Enos and his coaching staff, while another $7,000 was spent on meals, van der Merwe said. About $24,000 was allocated for transportation by car. Another $35,000 was spent on bringing recruits to Mount Pleasant, some of which was used for plane trips. The university also spends about $10,000 for recruiting services per year, van der Merwe said. “Most of those dollars are sunk into hotel, gas and other expenses with being physically out there trying to make contact,” he said. Coaches spend most of the fall off campus recruiting players in high schools. Once November and December rolls around, the focus shifts to bringing recruits who have given coaches a verbal commitment to campus for a visit. These trips can be a bit costly, depending upon the number of students and
their geographical location. “A lot of recruiting is variable based on the size of the class,” van der Merwe said. “It could be up and down depending on if football is bringing in 25 scholarship kids instead of 15 or 20. Also, the regional focus can have a big impact from year to year based upon where talent is pooling from or what positions everyone is chasing.” Van der Merwe said the amount for recruiting is budgeted each year but includes flexibility to move money around as needed. Coaches are also encouraged to spend less than the average per diem and often are reimbursed less than the national rate for gas. Miami led the MAC in football recruiting costs, spending $242,792 in 2011. Eastern Michigan followed with $230,141, almost $100,000 more than it spent in 2010. firstname.lastname@example.org

‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ enjoyable to those with open mind By Caitlin Cheevers Staff Reporter
“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” was the movie few expected and even less expected to be good. However, to audience members with an open mind, the film was not only entertaining but also visually stunning. The movie follows Abraham Lincoln throughout his life, from the death of his mother to his own untimely assassination. Although, there is an odd twist: Lincoln’s mother was killed by a vampire when he was a boy, so he vows to kill that vampire and however many others it takes to avenge his mother’s death. Oh, and most of the slave owners are actually vampires who took advantage of the opportunity to buy and boss around their own food. So while he’s at it, he might as well end slavery. Many history buffs are, understandably, turned off by the movie. Lincoln is, after all, one of the most well-known and most loved presidents in United States history. Who are these moviemakers to tarnish his positive reputation with the same
scum featured in “Twilight?” Well, not surprisingly, one of them is Tim Burton. The man has a love for the supernatural; so, if you don’t, then don’t see his movies. It’s simple movie-going common sense. However, appreciation should be had for the screenplay writer and author of the novel, Seth Grahame-Smith. He effortlessly wove real-life events into a science-fiction rendition of a major historical event. For example, in real life, Lincoln’s son Willie died of an illness believed to be typhoid fever. In the movie, on the other hand, he was killed by a vampire as a threat to Abraham. While many lovers of Grahame-Smith’s novel are disappointed by the drastic changes made on the big screen, the story is still incredibly entertaining. In addition, many parts of the novel would be dull in a film adaption. The two versions seem to simply be two different adaptations of a world in which Abraham Lincoln fought vampires. While the storyline might be a disappointment for some, the special effects and acting are sure to impress audience
‘Abraham Lincoln: vampire hunter’
HHHH w Genre: Horror members across the spectrum. Director Timur Bekmambetov of “Wanted” fame has an eye for angles that few others would think to shoot from. Scenes effortlessly slide from one to another through subtle transitions. An axe whizzing through the air becomes a quill with which Lincoln writes “vampires.” A pocket watch sliding across a map on a desk becomes the real-life train chugging by in the dead of night. In addition, Benjamin Walker, who plays Lincoln, commits to the role in a way that makes audience members truly believe they are watching the 16th president of the United States. While the movie isn’t for everyone, those who go with an open mind and enjoyment of supernatural adaptations are sure to enjoy a new take on a classic story. email@example.com

All Central Michigan athletic programs passed the test, clearing the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate for the 2010-11 season. All 16 teams scored above the 925 benchmark set by the NCAA, with women’s cross country (995), softball (991) and field hockey (984) leading the way for the athletics program. Men’s basketball (940), football (941) and wrestling (943) came the closest to the mark. Football and wrestling both took a fall compared to 200910, while men’s basketball actually went up from the 923 posted. CMU ranks No. 9 in the MidAmerican Conference in football and No. 8 in men’s basketball. The football team faced an immediate penalty following the 2008 season, resulting in a loss of scholarships for the football program, for their 922 APR rating for the 2006-07 school year. Every team in the MAC passed the benchmark except for one: Toledo’s men’s basketball team, which is ineligible for postseason play next season after posting an APR of 869. The Rockets have been
marked with two historical penalties, which puts them on public notice and practice reduction. They also face Level 1 and 2 penalties, which hands them in- and out-of-season restrictions, including a postseason ban. With the practice reduction, UT must use that time for “academic activities.” Including the Rockets, 15 teams are facing postseason bans for the 2012-13 season. Of those 15, 10 are men’s basketball programs, including the 2011 national champions University of Connecticut. Eleven MAC schools posted perfect scores of 1000, including Kent State baseball, which is currently in the College World Series. The APR rating is a term-byterm measure of eligibility and retention, originally designed to be an early indicator of graduation rates. The score is determined by every scholarship athlete earning a point for staying in school and another for being eligible. The points are then divided by the total points possible and then multiplied by 1000. firstname.lastname@example.org

Report: Big 12, SEC also sought semifinals outside bowl system By Teddy Greenstein MCT Campus
CHICAGO — As it turns out, the Big Ten wasn’t the only league to compromise on terms of the four-team playoff that the BCS presidential oversight committee formally approved Tuesday night. The SEC and Big 12 both wanted the semifinals to be played outside the bowl system, according to a source
from the BCS meetings. Bidding out all three games — the semifinals and championship — would have maximized revenue but relegated bowl games, to use a basketball analogy, to NIT status. The Big Ten wanted to protect the Rose Bowl, which likely will have a semifinal game every third year. The Pac-12 and ACC also didn’t want to adopt a system that felt so corpo-
rate and could be easier to lead to an eight-team playoff. The source was optimistic that the committee of university leaders, including Nebraska Chancellor Harvey Perlman, would approve the four-team seeded model and perhaps the formation of a 15-member selection committee at its meeting that is expected to conclude Tuesday night in Washington.
