Student pushes for change to SAC policy
College Republicans report: GOP in trouble
By Neil Rosan Staff Reporter
Students enrolled in an online class at Central Michigan University can now use the Student Activity Center without paying any extra fees. Before the policy change, students taking online classes had to pay a $30 membership fee for each session to use the SAC. Morley senior Christine Salvati worked to change the policy after she found out she would have to pay to work out. “For the first two weeks of the summer, they let me in, then one day they said I had to pay. I told them I was taking an online class at the university, but they said it was university policy,” she said. “The $30 wasn’t that bad, but that wasn’t the point. I could have paid it, but why should I when it should be a benefit for paying over $1,000 for an online class at Central (Michigan)?” Instead of going somewhere else, Salvati asked what could be done about the situation. “I stayed calm and asked them what I should do, and they sent me to the SAC oﬃce. They said they had no control over the policy, so I asked them where I should go next,” she said. She would end up visiting the Bovee University Center where she spoke with the Chip ID oﬃce and the Oﬃce of Student Life. Neither oﬃce seemed to know what she was talking about. “Honestly, it seemed like a lot of people were kind of short with me because I’m a student, not a faculty member,” Salvati said. Frustrated, she talked to her parents about the ordeal. “My dad said he would pay the $30 for me, but I told him no. It wasn’t just for me. I could have paid the fee myself, but I knew there were students who might not be able to,” Salvati said. “I told my parents. I couldn’t just let this happen. I know so many other students who are taking online classes who think they can work out at the SAC. It isn’t fair for them to pay either.” She then reached out to attorney and Central Michigan University fixed faculty member Todd Levitt via Twitter to see if anything could be done. Levitt gave her the phone numbers of some oﬃces around CMU, and, eventually, Salvati was able to get in contact with the oﬃce of University President George Ross’ oﬃce. A SAC | 2

A special retirement reception was held for former Student Media and Publications director Neil Hopp and executive secretary Jennie Vickers in Moore Hall on Thursday. Hopp had served as Central Michigan Life’s adviser since 2001 and oversaw the newspaper’s transition into the digital age. He began his 50-year
journalism career with CM Life in 1963 as a student. He announced his retirement in November and is followed by former Big Rapids Pioneer Editor-in-Chief Dave Clark, who took over on May 28. Vickers, a constant presence in the CM Life newsroom, retired after more than 31 years
as secretary, managing much of the finances for both CM Life and the Central Review. Tricia Kierst follows Vickers as Student Publications’ new executive secretary after taking over the job on May 20. email@example.com
A new report from College Republican National Committee finds the Republican Party in deep trouble with young voters, who view the GOP as “closedminded, racist, rigid, and old-fashioned.” The 95-page report, “Grand Old Party for a Brand New Generation,” painted a “dismal” picture for the party in the wake of last year’s general election, which saw 60 percent of voters age 18-29 vote for President Barack Obama over Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who won 37-percent of the vote, according to CNN. The study cited the results of a series of surveys and focus groups that found young voters, even those typically considered Republican-leaning, identifying much more with the Democratic Party’s platform than the GOP’s on a range of issues, both economic and social. Central Michigan University political science professors said the survey’s findings indicate a serious disconnect between younger voters and the party. “Their issue concerns and priorities are fundamentally different from younger citizens in many ways,” political science professor J. Cherie Strachan said. “So it may be hard for them to understand and reach out to younger voters.” While the results of its study might be ugly for the GOP, the CRNC points to former presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, who both found themselves competitive among young voters, as a sign Republicans can make themselves appealing to new voters again. “The GOP absolutely can win over young people again,” the study says. “But this will not occur without significant work to repair the damage done to the Republican brand among this age group over the last decade.” The party finds itself falling behind young voters on a wide range of issues. According to the report, 54- percent of those polled said taxes should be raised on the wealthy, long a non-starter for the GOP, compared to 31-percent who said taxes should be cut for everyone and only 3-percent who said taxes should be cut for only the wealthy.

Fifth annual Le Tour de Mont Pleasant bike race held Friday through Sunday By Amanda Brancecum Staff Reporter
Hundreds of professional and amateur cyclists, will pedal their way through Mount Pleasant this weekend for the fifth annual Le Tour de Mont Pleasant bicycle race Friday through Sunday. The race is hosted by the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber of Commerce. The action starts Friday at 5:30 p.m. at the Student Activity Center with the twilight time trial, a track of 3.78 miles. “(The race) lasts over three days and placed in three different locations in
Mount Pleasant; the event is special,” said Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Bret Hyble. A road race is set to take place near the Ziibiwing Center on Saturday with a pro road race and a shorter road race that will take cyclists through Isabella County. “The men’s road race was reduced to 107 miles, but it is still very grueling and popular for the pro racers,” Hyble said. A final day of racing on Sunday will end at the corner of Broadway and Franklin streets in downtown Mount Pleasant with
the criterium race and three other community races. The criterium is less than one mile long and is a closed course. Unlike the other races, the criterium is multi-lapped. “It’s a great event to not only watch as a spectator, but also a great opportunity to get involved on Sunday with the community at the business relay race, children’s races and the family fun ride.” Hyble said. A free children’s race will start at noon for kids ages three through nine. A RACE | 2

REPORT | CONTINUED FROM 1 A plurality of young voters, 41 percent, said the Affordable Care Act, Obama’s signature 2010 health care reform law, would make the American health care system better, as opposed to 32-percent who said it will do more harm than good. On gay marriage, 44-percent of young voters said gay marriage should be legal nationwide, and 26 percent said it should be left to the states to decide. Just 30-percent took the Republican platform’s stance of defining marriage as between a man and a woman. Likewise, 51-percent of young people blame “Republican economic policies” for the recession, and 55-percent and 72-percent of young people placed some or most of the blame on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and deregulation.

It’s not all doom and gloom in the report for the Republican Party, however. Seventy-two percent of those polled said the size of government should be reduced, long a Republican stance, and 82-percent said government spending needs to be cut because the national debt is “out of control.”
Another 86-percent said regulations should be reduced. Additionally, the report found Republican up-and-comers such as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., much easier to identify than Democratic rising stars.

“The office said they were very sorry about the whole situation and they would get back to me in a few days,” Salvati said. “I got a phone call a few days later from the president’s office. They said thank you for bringing this to our attention and that they had changed the policy for all online students. I went to the SAC later that day without any problems.” Soon after Salvati got the call, the news spread of the change in policy. “Two hours later, a friend called me saying online students could go to the SAC, and I told her I was the

CMU PROFS: GOP MUST CHANGE TO BE SUCCESSFUL
As the report’s authors note, however, the GOP faces a long road back toward winning back younger voters. While the CRNC is short on specifics on how to make that happen, Strachan said changes in rhetoric won’t be enough for the GOP to make gains. “It will be diﬃcult to attract young people without substantive policy change,” she said. “The millennial generation is media savvy, and young citizens have been exposed to commercial marketing and appeals since childhood.” Political science professor James Hill said the GOP must move toward the middle on social policy if it hopes to see better results in 2016. “The good news for the GOP is the young still do not vote with strong numbers and regularity like the older Republicans, so the GOP can still win midterm elections even if a majority of young voters do not identify with the party,” he said. email@example.com

person that got it changed. She couldn’t believe it,” Salvati said. “There was a lot of reaction on Twitter, too. People started tweeting Todd Levitt the news, and he said to thank me. I’ve never had my Twitter blow up so much. There was a lot of recognition right away.” Though it wasn’t easy, Salvati was proud of what she did and thinks other students have the power to change university policy. “If you think a rule should be changed, you have to be respectful and you have to stick to your guns,” she said. “When someone asks you questions about your issue you need to know the answers and how it can help the campus as a whole. Just stand up for what you believe in.”
The business relay race will start at 2 p.m, in which one bike is used and passed to each member of a team along a short track until the fourth and final member crosses the finish line. The winning team will get to pick which local charity their winnings will be donated. Professional cyclists will accompany others on the family fun ride at 3:30 p.m. on a roughly one-mile long course. “It brings a lot of people, business and excitement to Mount Pleasant’s community,” Hyble said. “The event has grown in size every year. There were 800 registrants last year and it looks like we will reach that number again this year, if not more.” All bicycle races require a one-day license and a helmet, except the children’s race, which only requires a helmet.

A crowd watches Howie Day perform during the Summer Concert Series on Broadway Street in downtown Mount Pleasant on Aug. 24, 2012.
Summer Concert Series begins Thursday with ‘American Idol’ winner Kris Allen By Nathan Zinzi Staff Reporter
Downtown Mount Pleasant will be packed Thursday night for the beginning of the fifth annual Summer Concert Series presented by Max & Emily’s Eatery and the city. Max & Emily’s, 125 E. Broadway St., will be hosting free shows on Broadway Street, and there are big names on tap for this year’s concerts. “American Idol” eighthseason winner Kris Allen will perform in front what Max & Emily’s owner Tim Brockman hopes is an active and vibrant downtown. “This is not an exclusive event,” Brockman said. “We encourage all businesses downtown to stay open and active. It is also encouraged of everyone who is attending to check out downtown, see what Mount Pleasant has to offer.” The concert series will also feature The Ragbirds on July 11, The Verve Pipe on July 18, The Saucecats on July 25, and Howie Day will be performing on Aug. 24, the Saturday of Welcome Week. All of the acts will begin at 7 p.m., with the exception of The Ragbirds, who will be performing at 8 p.m.

“This is not an exclusive event. We encourage all businesses downtown to stay open and active.” Tim Brockman, Max and Emily’s owner Brockman expects each of those national names to draw between 2,000 and 3,000 attendees each performance. This will provide ample opportunities for businesses to rake in customers and show the performers the sense of community in Mount Pleasant. “We wanted to make the event multigenerational, from children all the way up,” Brockman said. “We hope that the concerts will appeal to everyone of all ages.” Max & Emily’s partnered with Isabella Bank, Central Michigan University and Mount Pleasant to bring the performers into town and to provide a relaxed, entertaining night for all those that attend. “We just want everyone to bring a chair and to enjoy the night,” Brockman said. “Along with beautiful weather and some great music.” Broadway Street will be closed downtown most of the
day on Thursday so the stage can be built, décor can be arranged and to provide room for the crowd to gather. Seats will not be provided, but spots are available based on a first come, first serve basis. Those who drive downtown can park in the parking lot behind Max & Emily’s, which has been renovated and will be open to the public. “It’s an easy way for a guy with a struggling budget to have some fun in town for cheap,” Berkley senior Eddy Pendergrast said. Pendergrast said the concert series gives Mount Pleasant a chance to be active during the summer months, and he said he is looking forward to taking full advantage. “I’m looking forward to getting out of the house and seeing downtown as lively as ever,” he said. firstname.lastname@example.org

STEVEN’S SHINING MOMENT
A look at the Special Olympics through the eyes of the Inspirational Athlete of the Year By Neil Rosan | Staff Reporter An excited and enthusiastic Steven Doederlein stood in the back hallway of a packed McGuirk Arena before the opening ceremonies of the 2013 Special Olympics Michigan State Special Olympics Summer Games. “I’m ready,” he said with a grin. This was Steven’s 26th year competing in the Special Olympics, but it also was different from the rest. He had the opportunity to carry the torch and light the ﬂame for the games in front of more than 6,000 athletes on Thursday night. Steven, who is cognitively impaired and is diagnosed with autism, was named the Inspirational Athlete of the Year at last year’s games, which gave him the opportunity to carry the torch with the help of some of his Monroe County teammates. The Inspirational Athlete award is given to an athlete that exemplifies the motto, “Let me win; but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt”. “If Steven does not exemplify the motto, then I do not know the meaning,” Monroe County director Stacie Ourlain said. “Steven understands competition, and he understands a gold medal is good, but it isn’t the most important thing.” Inside McGuirk, Central Michigan University athletes dispersed among the crowd were surrounded by Special Olympics athletes, looking for autographs and photos. Central Michigan and Michigan State cheerleaders did all they could to get the athletes even more excited. After the opening speeches, performances and presentations, it was Steven’s moment to shine. The torch made its way round the walkway in McGuirk as it was handed from athlete to athlete. He was the final leg of the torch relay, and as the torch came closer, his eyes grew bigger. When it was finally his turn to take the torch, he held it high and lit the Olympic ﬂame with the help of Lt. John Jonathan Card. The crowd cheered as the ﬂames rose while Steven turned around to get a better look at the crowd. “I did it! They called my name! Everyone saw me,” he said. After a good night’s rest, he was ready to compete. His first day of competition started in the Student Activity Center with the rest of his Monroe Weightlifting teammates. There was still an hour before his first event, but Steven was already walking around telling everyone he was ready. He competed in the sit-up, the bench press and the stationary bike competitions. With Steven’s first event still a half an hour away, he was cheering for others who were competing in the push-up competition. “Steven’s enthusiasm keeps everyone going. He likes to make sure all the kids know they have done a good job and he tells them all the time. He keeps them moving and motivated,” said his mother, Shirley Doederlein. By the time his sit-up heat was up, Steven could barely contain his excitement. “I’m going to do 25,” he said. As Steven walked to the mat to do his sit-ups, he checked with the other competitors to make sure they had the right technique. “It’s not just the group he is with; it’s with any group that is participating in a sport,” said his father, Fred Doederlein. “He cheers on kids who are competing from other areas and makes sure to go over and congratulate them no matter what. He’s definitely not a one team man, he’ll cheer on or help anyone.” After a few warm ups, the competition began. Steven ended up surpassing his goal and did 35 sit-ups. “I was moving! I did great. That was a lot of fun,” Steven said. He placed second in the event, but it would have been hard to tell from the smile on his face as he stood to receive his medal. With one event down, the Monroe weightlifting team went to get some lunch. Steven told everyone along the way how he won a silver medal and how well his teammates did. “I know everybody,” Steven said. His enthusiasm was unwavering no matter who or how many people he talked to. “From the minute he gets up in the morning until he goes to bed at night, he is always upbeat,” Shirley said. “He’s always talking or interacting with someone. He never finds a stranger. It doesn’t matter who you are, he will always stop and talk to you.” Once the lunch break was over, the Monroe County weightlifting team returned to the SAC for two more competitions: the bench press and the stationary bike. Steven finished second in both the bench press and stationary bike competitions, but was quick to congratulate the winners and was proud of his achievements, despite the results. “He never has a bad day. I’ve never seen him have a bad day since he was born. He’s always ready to go,” Fred said. “We used to go on trips to Toronto, and we would leave at 1 a.m., and he was upbeat the whole way there. I never had to worry about falling asleep driving.” It was not long before it was time for the closing ceremonies and victory dance. The closing ceremonies were taking place in the SAC and Steven was going to have another chance to light the ﬂame. High above the basketball courts, Steven paced on the elevated track telling every onlooker what he was going to do. The lighting of the ﬂame at the closing ceremonies went largely the same as the opening. Steven was the last leg and, once again, lit the ﬂame with Card. This time, he was called to the stage for a special presentation. As he made his way to the stage, Steven high-fived anyone who happened to be nearby. Once he made his way to the stage, Card presented him with an honorary membership to the Law Enforcement Torch Run, an annual Special Olympics fundraiser, and a personalized Torch Run jacket. “They called my name and I got a jacket. This jacket is so nice. I’m very happy,” Steven said. As the closing ceremonies gave way to the victory dance, Steven danced in his jacket and never took it off for the rest of the night. Though Steven had been through a long day, his contagious smile never left his face as he celebrated with his teammates. “He’s always there for you. He’s a go-to guy,” Fred said. email@example.com

SPECIAL OLYMPICS MICHIGAN
CMU student bonds with brother during games Long time volunteer and bocce ball coach Addison Ng enjoys seeing reaction of medal winners, providing opportunities for mentally impared By Ryan Zuke Staff Reporter
The 2013 Michigan State Special Olympics Summer Games reminded Marcy Ng why she is such a proud mother of her two sons.
The three-day event in Mount Pleasant gave her the opportunity to coach bocce ball with her one son, Addison Ng, 20, and watch her other son, Marshall Ng, 22, compete in the bocce events. As a single mom, Marcy said it was heartwarming to see the camaraderie between the two brothers, especially because they do not get to see each other often anymore with Addison being a junior at Central Michigan University. “It means a lot to have both of my boys there,” she
said trying to fight back tears in her eyes. “They love each other. It’s hard for me, because I’m a single mom, and I’ve had to bring both of them up, and they both have turned out pretty darn good.“ In a sense, she is like a mother to the other five athletes on the team, as well. She and Addison chaperoned and coached the team this weekend. “I feel like I’m their mom,” Marcy said. “They’re all like my kids. They’re all Marshall’s friends, and I’ve known them for so many years. I know all their parents, so I feel comfortable with them, and they feel comfortable with me helping them.” The athletes had the opportunity to stay in the dorms this weekend, an experience most non-college students never get. Addison said he is happy his brother was able to experience living in the dorms, even if it was just for a weekend.
“This is definitely an experience for him,” Addison said. “I think everyone should have that experience (living in the dorms), even if they don’t go to college.” Addison began volunteering at the Special Olympics when he was eight, primarily because of his brother, who is cognitively impaired. But, when he was 18, he wanted to become more involved with his brother and his teammates. “I first started helping out in swimming, and I decided later, why don’t I just start coaching? Right now,” he said. “I’m a bocce ball coach (with his mom), and I’m having a blast with it.” Addison said his favorite part of volunteering is seeing the interaction among the athletes and how much they enjoy the games. “The best part of volunteering is just seeing everyone’s faces whenever they get a
medal,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s gold, silver or bronze, they are still having the best time of their life. They are basically in the spotlight right now, which a lot of mentally impaired kids don’t really have that opportunity.” Special Olympics Michigan continues to get thousands of volunteers every year as support for the organization keeps growing. “You see them come from everywhere,” Marcy said. “A lot of the volunteers are family members and help in the sport their children or their siblings participate in. And there are a lot of CMU or (Michigan State University) students, or people who want to work with people with special needs. And then you have retired people who have just done it for years and years, and it’s just really neat to see all the love they have for these kids.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Healthy Athletes provides free clinics for athletes By CM Life Staff Staff Reports
Organizers of the 2013 Michigan Summer Special Olympics put a special emphasis on the athletes’ health this past weekend. Seven health clinic stands were put up throughout the Indoor Athletic Center, as opposed to the usual two, as a part of Special Olympics Michigan’s Healthy Athletes program. The program aims to provide free health screenings at the games in a fun, welcoming way for the athletes. “These health clinics are one of the most important aspects for most of the athletes here,” Field Service Director Belinda Laughlin said. Athletes were given a punch card that, after being punched three times at the stations, could be redeemed for a free pedometer. “With these, we are trying to encourage our athletes to walk a distance of 10,000
steps per day to help promote healthy exercise and lifestyles,” Laughlin said. Each of the seven clinics were dedicated to providing checkups and advice on many different aspects of health, including diet, exercise, sight, hearing and dental health. The clinics are designed to provide athletes with a chance to learn better health habits. According to the Special Olympics’ 2012 screening results, Special Olympics athletes saw themselves at increased risk for certain health issues. In 2012, 50 percent of athletes “had at least one kind of skin or nail condition” and 37 percent “had obvious, untreated tooth decay.” Additionally, 27 percent of athletes failed their hearing tests and 15 percent were found to have an eye disease. Laughlin said these clinics are a chance to reverse those trends. “I love to see the popularity in this room because it means the athletes are taking advantage of being healthy,” she said. email@example.com

Opening ceremonies unite athletes, volunteers Members of football team pump up crowd in McGuirk Arena By Taylor DesOrmeau Staff Reporter
The threat of rain and a hot, muggy McGuirk Arena didn’t put a damper on the opening ceremonies of the 2013 Michigan State Special Olympics Summer Games. Hundreds of volunteers, including CMU athletes, medical staff, students and local celebrities helped make the opening ceremonies special for the 2,655 athletes, along with their coaches, family members and chaperones. “American Idol” top-40 finalist and Sacred Heart graduate Shubha Vedula sang the Star Spangled Banner in front of the packed crowd, which joined in with the Mount Pleasant native. “I thought it was pretty cool,” Vedula said. “It’s definitely not just about the person singing, it’s about everyone there.” This isn’t the first time the Sacred Heart graduate and valedictorian has volunteered with the Special Olympics. Vedula first volunteered with the Special Olympics two years ago and has “loved it since then.” “I just (wanted) to say thank you to everyone and good luck to the athletes,” Vedula said. “It (was) awesome being here
and it’s awesome that there’s something like this.” Just like the opening ceremonies of the Olympics, representatives from each area of Michigan were introduced as they entered the arena. After the welcoming, the 2013 Healthy Athlete of the Year was introduced and Spartan Stores presented Special Olympics Michigan with a $165,000 check. Throughout the ceremonies, spectators interacted with members of the Central Michigan football team, who greeted people and helped distribute water bottles. “We are just here to have a good time and to show all the kids and adults the football team is willing to help out,” said redshirt freshman running back Martez Walker. “It’s not just about us. We’re here to show our face and show that we really care.” Walker said about half of the football team was in Mount Pleasant to volunteer and enjoy the athletic events that took place Friday and Saturday. Some CMU students that are volunteering are getting class credit. PES 347A, Organizational and Administration of the Special Olympics, had 28 students on hand over the weekend to help out. “It’s a class where we help to do whatever we can to get things ready and prepared,” Sterling Heights junior Kristina Hasanaj said. “We set up the tents and the tables and t-shirts and organize things.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Family, friends provide support for athletes during summer games By Mark Cavitt Staff Reporter
The 2013 Michigan State Special Olympics Summer Games gave families and friends of this year’s athletes a chance to celebrate what their achievements and successes.
Wesley and Mattie Labeau were two of those parents. They came to the games with the Red Team from the Oscoda and East Tawas area, which is made up of family and friends of the Labeaus. “This gives my kids the chance to do something they can’t do in school,” Labeau said. “Most of the schools don’t have a lot of athletic programs for the handicap kids. We have some of the kids here in our group that aren’t family, but we treat them as family, because we provide that encouragement and support system for them at the games.”
Labeau said it’s always a thrill seeing the kids compete and have a good time in a positive environment. “It’s awesome,” Labeau said. “You get that big smile from the kids and it gives you chills because you know they’re having a good time.” Carl Diener is a coach on the Red Team, and even though he didn’t have any of his own children participating in the games, he always makes sure he is there coaching, and he has done that for the past eight years. “The family support is very important,” Diener said. “I’m
“You get that big smile from the kids and it gives you chills because you know they’re having a good time.” Mattie Labeau, Red Team parent sure if some of these families weren’t here supporting their children, they wouldn’t be participating in the games. It’s very important for the kids.” Labeau said the games provide the children with a great chance to feel excited about their ability, instead of
being unhappy about what they can’t do. “The games give the kids a chance to excel at something they’ve never been given the opportunity to do before,” Labeau said. email@example.com

Zeigler to coach at UDM after one-year hiatus CM Life Staff Reports
Former Central Michigan men’s basketball coach Ernie Zeigler has been hired as an assistant at the University of Detroit Mercy. Zeigler, hired May 29, joins a coaching staff led by Ray McCallum and that includes former CMU head coach Jay Smith. Zeigler was fired by CMU in March 2012 after going 75-111 through six seasons. Since his firing, Zeigler has been paid more than $360,000 as part of a buyout — he had two years remaining on his contract that paid him an annual salary of $175,000 — and opted not to take a coaching job last season. Instead, it appears, Ernie
Zeigler has been integral in finding a secure school for his son, Trey. Recruited by Ernie, Trey Zeigler — a standout player at Mount Pleasant High School and highly sought after player nationally — made the decision in 2009 to play for his father at CMU. Trey led the team in scoring during the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons, but the Chippewas finished with back-to-back 20 losses and proved to be no real threat in the Mid-American Conference tournament, prompting the firing of Ernie Zeigler. Trey later left the program and transferred to Pittsburgh, while several other players departed for various reasons.
Since then, Trey has had a rough go of it. He came off the bench for most of the season at Pitt, averaging just 4.4 points and two rebounds per game, and was suspended for several games after being charged with DUI. He has since transferred to TCU for his senior season. A graduate of Detroit Cody High School, Ernie Zeiglerstarted his coaching career as an assistant at his alma mater from 1990 to 1996. From 1992 to 1997. Since 1999, he’s been an assistant at Kansas State (1999-2000), Bowling Green (2000-01), Pittsburgh (200103) and UCLA (2003-06). He was hired by CMU athletics director Dave Heeke in June 2006 following the abrupt resignation of Smith.
Detroit, who appeared in its second postseason appearance in as many years last season, has been on an upswing under McCallum. He has an 86-80 record over five seasons with the Titans, including a Horizon League tournament championship and NCAA tournament appearance in 2012 — the program’s first since 1999. Detroit finished 20-13 last season, losing in the semifinals of the Horizon League tournament before earning a bid to the NIT. The school, however, was hit in the offseason with allegations of an affair involving former UDM athletics director Keri Gaither and assistant coach Derek Thomas. Both abruptly resigned, while as-
