Univ., city police prepare for first game by nick ashley staff writer

Fan safety and alcohol control are the main issues for West Virginia University and Morgantown police during Saturday’s football game against Coastal Carolina. For the University Police Department, fan behavior is a primary concern during games, said Police Chief Bob Roberts. On-field officials are required to stop a game during a situation that compromises

the safety of participants and fans or affects the integrity of the game, according to NCAA sportsmanship rules. “Alcohol is the next big thing that we are trying to crack down on,” said Morgantown Police Lt. Harold Sperringer. Alcohol is not permitted in Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium during the game, he said. Although UPD is the main enforcement agency, several agencies will be working together to help regulate security.

“We all work together in a unified command,” Roberts said. “This includes the Morgantown police, state police, EMS, fire department and the athletic department.” The University also works with the FBI and contracts security staff through Contemporary Services Corporation, which focuses on event staffing, security and crowd management, Roberts said. Officers work both inside and outside the stadium before and during the game. “There are close to 100 offi-

erts said who has worked with UPD for 25 years, and Sperringer, who has worked with MPD for 20 years. “When I first started, it was much more of a challenge,” Roberts said. “Now, the fans at the stadium are great.” Weekday night games generally create more of a challenge for the officers, Sperringer said. “Thursday and Friday games create more time for fans to tailgate,” Sperringer

cers at the stadium. The University, state and Morgantown police patrol during the games and on the street,” Sperringer said. Because of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the agencies develop emergency plans for events to ensure things go smoothly, Roberts said. Typically, incidents start at the gates to the stadium, though they can occur anywhere in the stadium, Roberts said. There have been no major incidents at the stadium, Rob-

WVU, community relations to be discussed Tuesday TRAVIS CRUm CITY EDITOR

Strengthening the relationship between Morgantown and West Virginia University is the goal of the Student Government Association State of the Student Body Address. Earlier this week, SGA President Chris Lewallen announced he would attend the Sept. 7 City Council meeting to deliver the message of more student involvement in the community. “We just need to partner with the council and anyone else we can to make sure that the student voice is brought into those decisions,” Lewallen said in an earlier statement. Building a stronger relationship between the city and students would bring the University up to par with other colleges WVU’s size, such as Pittsburgh University in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh and Auburn University, said SGA Chief-of-Staff Daniel Brummage. “The relations between those universities and those towns, it’s not the town and

The seminar will assist students in gaining firsthand knowledge about employment at the CIA, Glenn said. “Backgrounds in science and technology are strong factors for the CIA, and we have those strong programs here at WVU,” said David Durham, director of the Career Services Center. There are many opportunities within the CIA for students with degrees from WVU, he said. Students with skills in sci-

ence, engineering, technology, analysis, foreign languages and administration will find opportunities in the U.S. and overseas, Glenn said in a press release. Preparation is important for students who wish to attend the seminar, Glenn and Durham said. Glenn advises students to visit the CIA website and review the opportunities available before attending. “At the seminar, students should be honest with the recruiter and should take it very seriously,” Durham said.


West Virginia University is one of 350 colleges selling apparel from a brand that is anti-sweatshop. The WVU bookstore began carrying the Alta Garcia brand of clothing late this summer, said David Lang, manager of the Barnes & Noble downtown WVU bookstore. The brand is different than other college apparel companies because they pay their workers a “living wage,” said Chris Potter, intern at Fenton, a public interest communications firm teamed with Knights Apparel, an Americabased company that started the brand. “They’re paying their workers a living wage, which is three times the wage of typical apparel workers,” Potter said. This allows the workers to afford better homes and living conditions. The brand is made in the Dominican Republic in a factory in Villa Altagracia, he said WVU got involved in the project when Barnes & Noble, which owns the WVU bookstore, started offering

The CIA is looking for candidates who are serious about working for them in the future so students should heed the recruiter’s advice, he said. The recruiter will also be conducting individual resume consultations specific to the CIA throughout the day with students who have previously signed up, Glenn said. Although consultations are currently full, Glenn expects the CIA will offer this service to WVU students again in the future.

Pearl Harbor marks 65th anniversary of World War II’s Japanese surrender PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (AP) — Don Fosburg recalled friends and family killed in World War II as he marked the 65th anniversary of the end of the conflict on Thursday. “You start thinking about all the guys who didn’t make it. I had a cousin who was on Bataan and didn’t survive. His brother was blown up off the coast of Africa,” said the 84-year-old, who was a radioman aboard the USS Missouri during the war. “You start to thinking about the guys that you knew. You can’t help but do that. And maybe you think you’re pretty lucky.” Fosburg returned to the Missouri – now a museum moored in Pearl Harbor – for a ceremony commemorating 6½ decades since Japan formally signed surrender papers on board the battleship when it was anchored in Tokyo Bay on Sept. 2, 1945. He remembered the mood being calmer than some two weeks before that occasion, on the night of Aug. 15, when sailors cheered and hollered after a fellow radioman got word Japan had agreed to unconditionally surrender. “He woke me up: ‘They’ve accepted the surrender. The war is over!’ Then it went through the ship, and it was quite a bit of celebration,” Fosburg said. “It woke everybody up.” Veterans Secretary Eric Shinseki, who delivered the keynote address, hailed the sacrifices of those who fought on Pacific atolls, European forests and manned supply depots and refueling stations. “All great leaders know the mightiest undertakings succeed because of the strength and courage, determination and sacrifice, of men and women whose names will never be recorded in history books or memorialized in museums,” said Shinseki, a retired four-star general. The Missouri today sits just behind the USS Arizona, which sank in the Japanese attack that pushed the

In this Tuesday, Aug. 14, 1945 picture, U.S. President Harry S. Truman stands at his desk during a news conference in the White House in Washington announcing the Japanese surrender, officially signaling the war’s end. World War II veterans, their families and officials marked the 65th anniversary of the end of that war on board the same ship where Japan formally surrendered in 1945. U.S. into the war in 1941. Sen. Daniel Inouye, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroism in Italy, told the crowd the two ships are the bookends of World War II. The Arizona represents the sacrifice and resilient spirit of the American people, while the Missouri speaks of America’s triumphant victory, he said. “They send a strong message to our allies, while cautioning potential enemies, that we can endure hardships, that we persevere and, yes, we will emerge victori-

ous,” Inouye said. The “Mighty Mo” was launched in 1944 and fought in the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa. It was decommissioned in 1955 but revived in the 1980s, after which it fired some of the first shots of the Gulf War in 1991. The battleship went into dry dock last year for three months of sanding and painting to remove rust that had built up on the ship’s hull. The $18 million overhaul was its first in 17 years. One of the Missouri’s wartime crew, 94-year-old Frank

Borrell, said he was seeing his battleship for the last time. Borrell has been diagnosed with lung cancer and was told he has four months to live. “I told my wife, ‘Before I die, I want to see my ship again,’” Borrell said. “This couldn’t have been a better place for me to see it.” The Beacon, N.Y. native, now retired to Orlando, Fla., came to Hawaii with the help of the Dream Foundation, a California-based nonprofit that grants wishes to adults facing life-threatening illnesses.

W.Va. governor’s funds increase for US Senate bid past $1.5 million CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — New filings show Gov. Joe Manchin’s U.S. Senate campaign continued to raise hefty amounts in the days before last week’s special primary election. Federal Election Commission reports posted online this week show the Democratic nominee attracted nearly $146,000 on Aug. 25. That was the final day for Senate candidates to disclose contributions within 48 hours of receiving them. Manchin raised at least $393,000 that week, hiking his campaign total above $1.5 million. Last week’s donors include executives and the political action committees of the PGA Tour and CONSOL Energy. Coal, utility and other interests in Alabama provided around $95,000 of the week’s haul. PACs for the American Medical Association, Chesapeake En-

ergy and several labor unions, including the American Federation of Teachers and the United Auto Workers, also gave to Manchin during that time. Available FEC reports list $22,400 contributed to Republican nominee John Raese last week. The industrialist and media owner had provided $520,000 of the $717,400 his campaign reported raising as of Aug. 25. Barring any further postings of 48-hour disclosures, the next round of reports are due in midOctober. Those reports will also detail spending. Pre-primary filings showed that as of Aug. 8, Manchin had spent $35,448 and Raese, $140,683. No FEC filings were available for Mountain Party nominee Jesse Johnson. Raising or spending more than $5,000 triggers reporting.

Ohio governor spares killer who claimed innocence COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A condemned inmate had his life spared Thursday when Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland cited “legitimate questions” about evidence used to convict the inmate, even though the governor believes the prisoner committed the crimes. Strickland questioned some of the eyewitness testimony against Kevin Keith, who was scheduled to die Sept. 15, and says he’s bothered that other possible suspects weren’t fully investigated. Strickland said Keith has appeals available that could lead to a full reexamination of the crime, but he also acknowledged that might not happen. Strickland said that despite evidence supporting Keith’s guilt, “many legitimate questions have been raised regarding the evidence in support of the conviction and the investigation which led to it.”

The “case is clearly one in which a full, fair analysis of all of the unanswered questions should be considered by a court,” Strickland said. “Under these circumstances, I cannot allow Mr. Keith to be executed.” The move by the Democratic governor overrides last month’s decision from his parole board, which unanimously recommended against clemency. Strickland also overrode the parole board in 2008, when he commuted the death sentence of another inmate who claimed innocence. Strickland made it clear he believes Keith is likely guilty of the 1994 slayings in Bucyrus, about 60 miles north of Columbus. “There is evidence which links him to the crimes that, while circumstantial, is not otherwise well explained,” Strickland said. Police say Keith entered an apartment in Bucyrus on the

evening of Feb. 13, 1994, and sprayed it with gunfire, killing Marichell Chatman, 24; her 4-year-old daughter, Marchae; and the Marichell’s aunt, Linda Chatman, 39. Three others were wounded, including siblings Quanita Reeves, 7, and Quentin Reeves, 4. Marichell Chatman was the sister of an undercover police informant whose efforts led to a drug raid weeks earlier during which Keith was arrested. Keith’s attorneys questioned eyewitness testimony that identified Keith as the shooter, provided evidence of an alternate suspect and lined up four alibi witnesses. Keith’s attorneys welcomed the decision while noting that their client, who had requested a pardon from Strickland, still needs a new trial to prove his innocence. “The commutation to a life sentence does not lessen the

need for justice to prevail,” the attorneys said in a statement. A message left with prosecutors in Crawford County was not immediately returned. Keith’s brother, Charles Keith, praised the decision but said more had to be done. “We’re still in pursuit of the truth,” said Charles Keith, of Canton. “Now we have to channel our energies and focus ourselves onto getting Kevin out completely.” Strickland spared John Spirko in 2008, citing a lack of physical evidence tying him to a 1982 murder. In 2009 he spared Jeffrey Hill, who killed his mother, Emma Hill, in a cocaine induced rage, after Hill’s entire family asked for mercy. Strickland also spared Richard Nields in June, citing court decisions that questioned the appropriateness of a death sentence. Nields strangled his girlfriend during an argument.

Justice Department sues Arizona sheriff in civil rights probe


Two goats are stranded on a railroad bridge south of Roundup, Mont Wednesday. The goats were rescued after nearly two days and are in good condition.

Goats rescued after two days on 6-inch ledge in Montana HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Two young goats wandered onto the thin ledge of a railroad bridge and spent nearly two days high above the ground until rescuers in a towering cherry picker plucked them from their perch, hungry but safe. The rescue occurred Wednesday 60 feet above a little-trafficked rural roadway in southern Montana between Billings and Roundup, after a caller told the Rimrock Humane Society the goats were stranded on the 6-inch ledge. The young female animals weighing 25 and 35 pounds mostly stayed on the angled ledge, even though there was a wider surface area on a pillar just a few feet away. “The whole time, we thought they were going to fall off,” said Sandy Church, humane society president. “These guys are just babies.” Church said it wasn’t clear how the nimble-footed animals got into the predicament, but she speculated they wandered onto the ledge at night then froze after the sun rose and they discovered where they were. The goats sometimes stepped to the pillar to urinate then returned to the narrower ledge, where they tried to rest their tired legs by tucking them under their bodies for a few seconds, she said.


In this photo from Wednesday, Cory Freeman looks at two stranded goats near Roundup, Mont. The goats were rescued after nearly two days and are in good condition. Authorities were called Tuesday, when the goats were first spotted. But confusion about the location delayed the rescue until another caller alerted the humane society on Wednesday along with the Musselshell County sheriff’s office. The sheriff’s office, Church and Cory Freeman, a humane society volunteer who runs the Animal Edventures Sanctuary, enlisted the help of officials at Signal Peak Energy, which operates a nearby coal mine. Mine boss John DeMichiei volunteered mining equipment with an arm high enough to reach the stranded goats that

eventually moved to the pillar. “We thought they were going to panic, but it was just the opposite,” said Church, who videotaped the five-minute rescue. The rescue went smoothly, and the goats appeared to be in good condition at Freeman’s animal sanctuary. The goats had collars around their necks, and Church and Freeman were searching for the owner. Church hoped the animals weren’t abandoned. But if they were, she already has talked to people offering to adopt them. “Everybody loves an animal with a story,” Church said.

PHOENIX (AP) — The Justice Department sued the nation’s self-proclaimed “toughest sheriff” on Thursday, calling Joe Arpaio’s defiance of an investigation into his office’s alleged discrimination against Hispanics “unprecedented.” It’s the first time in decades a lawman has refused to cooperate in one of the agency’s probes, the department said. The Arizona sheriff had been given until Aug. 17 to hand over documents the federal government first asked for 15 months ago, when it started investigating alleged discrimination, unconstitutional searches and seizures and jail policies that discriminate against people with limited English skills. Thomas Perez, assistant attorney general for the department’s civil rights division, said it’s unfortunate the department had to sue to get the documents, which neither the agency nor Arpaio would describe. But Arpaio called the lawsuit “a ruse” and said the federal government is just trying to score a win against the state, which has found itself at the center of the nation’s argument over illegal immigration since passing a law that mirrors many of the policies Arpaio has put into place in the greater Phoenix area. “I think they know we have not been racial profiling, so what’s the next step – camouflage the situation, go the courts, and make it look like I’m not cooperating,” Arpaio said Thursday. Arpaio said he provided “hundreds of thousands” of reports but hasn’t turned over others because the department’s request was too broad. Kevin Ryan, former U.S. At-

torney for the Northern District of California and a law professor at the University of San Francisco, said he thought the department’s characterization of Arpaio’s behavior as unprecedented was overstating it. He said the contentious relationship between the sheriff and the department is no secret. “You really can’t hold it against the sheriff and assume he’s guilty because he’s not rolling over for the Justice Department,” he said. Arpaio believes the department’s inquiry is focused on his immigration sweeps, patrols where deputies flood an area of a city – in some cases heavily Latino areas – to seek out traffic violators and arrest other offenders. Critics say the deputies pull people over for minor traffic infractions because of the color of their skin so they can ask them for their proof of citizenship. The lawsuit says Arpaio’s office signed agreements promising to cooperate with civilrights investigations and other reviews when it accepted federal law enforcement grants. Last year, the nearly $113 million that the county government received from the federal government accounted for about 5 percent of the county’s $2 billion budget. The lawsuit listed $16.5 million of funding provided Arpaio’s office through several programs. Thursday’s lawsuit is the latest action in a slew against Arizona by the federal government. In 2009, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security stripped Arpaio’s office of its special powers to enforce federal immigration laws, and in May, the Obama administration urged

the U.S. Supreme Court to prevent Arizona from enforcing its employer sanctions law. In July, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit to overturn portions of Arizona’s strict new immigration law that would require police officers to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are in the country illegally. A federal judge put that provision and most of the law on hold. The continued attention on the state sends a clear political message that the federal government doesn’t want Arizona enforcing federal immigration laws, said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates for strict immigration laws. “It’s surprising that the administration would focus on Arizona and go after it on such a high-profile and persistent way,” he said. In a separate investigation, a federal grand jury in Phoenix is examining allegations that Arpaio has abused his powers with actions such as intimidating county workers by showing up at their homes at nights and on weekends. A Hispanic activist said a federal judge might have to threaten jail time to get Arpaio to cooperate in the lawsuit filed Thursday. “It’s going to take the hard hand of the judge to order some sanctions against the sheriff’s office,” said Lydia Guzman of the Phoenix-based civil rights group Somos America. Arizona Republican Sen. Russell Pearce, author of the new Arizona law, called the Justice Department’s actions against Arpaio a “witch hunt.”

Pack the stadium and support the ‘Eers Saturday marks the first football game of the 2011 season. To start the season off right, students need to show up in droves and don the Old Gold and Blue in support of the West Virginia University Mountaineers against Coastal Carolina University. Students need to pack the stadium to be truly effective, as few venues are more intimidating than the stadium filled with a sea of gold-clad Mountaineer fans. Cheer as loud as possible, participate in the chants and support the team.

Above all, be respectful to your peers, the team and opposing fans. WVU has been known for rowdy behavior in the past, with objects thrown at referees and opposing teams and profanities so loud they reached national TV audiences, granting us the tag of rudest student section in America. That’s not how the students and fans of WVU should want to be known. Instead, be known as the fiercest, loudest and most supportive fans in the nation.

Because when the football team has the full support of students and fans, it encourages the team to take its play to another level, making the University proud in the process. Attending a WVU game is unlike any other experience at this University. Standing beside fellow fans and embracing the glory of Mountaineer pride takes on the feeling of a close-knit community. Despite majors or ranks, everyone attending football games is a Mountaineer.

WVU students have the chance to receive tickets to games for one of the best teams in the Big East, and, in recent years, the country. This is our chance to show how much we appreciate the student-athletes who work diligently on and off the field. Join together to jingle your keys at kick-off (freshmen, don’t be ashamed of the lanyards). Answer each “Let’s Go” with a hearty “Mountaineers.” And, of course, win or lose (although the latter better not

happen this weekend) wrap your arms around fellow fans at the end of the game and sing “Country Roads.” For some of you, this may be your first Mountaineer football season. For others, it could be your last. Regardless, make the most of the moment by relishing your time at Mountaineer Field, yelling at the top of your lungs and helping the Mountaineers to bring home a “W.”

A brief tutorial to enjoying gameday in Touchdown City brannan lahoda opinion editor

It’s that time of year again in Morgantown. Early September. Hot and humid walks to class with heat leaping off the ground. The leaves are changing on the ridges around town. One decent frost and the Boreman Hall gingkos will lose their leaves in a single shower of gold. And, of course, Mountaineer football is about to kick off. For the past 10 seasons, I’ve traveled to Mountaineer Field to take part in gameday festivities. It’s a part of life I am loath to forfeit. Gameday in this city is a such an exciting experience that, despite recent mediocrity, will keep many of my

fellow graduates coming back to Touchdown City for years to come. Whether you’re a lanyardswinging freshman or a seasoned super-senior working on that MDS degree, gameday in Morgantown is a treat for all ages. This year’s home-opener against Coastal Carolina University will be no different. Yes, the Chanticleers are a Football Championship Subdivision opponent. The Mountaineers should roll over them. But, then again, that’s what most thought regarding Liberty the year before. Saturday’s game, if it all goes to plan, will be little more than a tune-up heading into the short week at Marshall. Regardless of the quality of play on the field, you can still

take matters into your own hands and enjoy the fleeting football season. So for all you college football virgins (and even you veterans) the following is a brief list of helpful hints. Limit alcoholic intake Friday night While this won’t be much of an issue tonight, for noon games it can get dicey. For most, it’s difficult to consume copious copies of Cognac until 4 a.m. Friday and then attempt to wake up at 8 a.m. to begin pre-game festivities the next morning.

Letters to the editor Represent WVU with pride Saturday Mountaineer football season is upon us, and I am sure most of you are as excited about Saturday as I am. The Mountaineers will kick off the season at 3:30 p.m., as they host the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers. As most of you know, Mountaineer football season can be one of the most fun and memorable times of the fall semester. We must remember to let our Mountaineer pride shine through by celebrating gameday responsibly and positively. I encourage you all to cheer loud and create a high-energy environment while maintaining a family-friendly atmosphere. Remember, fans play an integral part in shaping the Mountaineer image, and it’s important to represent WVU with sportsmanship and class. Please show respect for all fans, players, coaches and officials. The following gameday regulations will also help to promote a safe stadium environment and


black market textbooks. The column suggests state laws and West Virginia University policies concerning resale of complimentary copies of textbooks are inadequate. In fact, several laws and policies address this situation. The WV State Ethics Code prohibits employees from using their position for personal gain, which includes profiting from selling books received because one is a faculty member. The statutory requirements of WV Code § 18B-10-14 as promulgated in the rules of Higher Education Policy Commission Policy (Title 133 Series 51) state that “An employee may ... receive free sample copies ... but may not resell those items and retain the proceeds.” Ken Gray The new version of the WVU Vice President for Student Affairs Faculty Handbook, which is currently under review for adoption by the faculty, contains language that prohibits such sales.

Remember to bring your ticket and WVU ID for admittance, and as you make your way to the stadium, be sure to check out the Student LOT, located on Oakland Street. The Student LOT, formerly known as “The Pit,” is the perfect place to hang out with friends and fellow students this football season. Entertainment and food will be provided. Let’s go, Mountaineers.

Head to the field It’s time to close up shop at the tailgate (be helpful and offer to clean) and make the climb (or descent, Law School hillers) to Mountaineer Field at Mylan Puskar Stadium. The best advice I can give is to arrive at least 40 minutes before kickoff. You simply do not want to miss the Pride of West Virginia. Brought onto the field by the drumline’s “boogie cadence,” seeing several hundred band members run onto the field carrying shiny and heavy instruments is a site to behold. Watch for the conductors to slap hands at midfield and the flag corps to raise their flags in unison during “Simple Gifts.” You will get chills. Enjoy, my fellow Mountaineers. on Sept. 1 about textbook prices rising due to textbook speculators, I would gently recommend that the author catch up on Economics 101. The column stated that since the free trial copies of texts loaned to professors are being sold instead of given back to the publishing company, they are raising the prices of textbooks for everyone. But how does an increase in the supply of anything make it more expensive when demand is constant? If anything, these textbook speculators are doing students everywhere a favor and driving a stake into the heart of the textbook publishers’ industrial Alan Stolzenberg complex. Associate Professor of ChemisHigher prices always draw try, Faculty Senate Chair entrepreneurs and suppliers to that field so that they too can make money, and with more competition come lower and lower prices, which eventually draw profit margins to near zero.

They could have stopped sending unsolicited copies but have not chosen to do so. Several publishers are shifting to online review copies, so this problem will probably disappear in a few years. Finally, the most important point to remember is that your WVU faculty feels very strongly that it is our job to seek out the best value texts at the most costeffective price for our students. The high cost of textbooks has attracted attention at both the national and state levels and efforts are underway to require practices that will limit these costs.

numerous online retailers and brokers) have only helped lower book prices, not raise them. Quoting publishing executives also doesn’t help this argument when they are desperate to pin the blame of rising costs on anyone but themselves, the ones who actually make and then market textbooks with “newer editions” that are no different than a cheaper previous edition save different page numbers and graphics. For an easy read and a layman’s reintroduction to economics, I recommend Henry Hazlitt’s “Economics in One Lesson,” and on the issue of speculators Walter Block’s “Defending the Undefendable.” Both are fantastic at educating without being boring or talking down to the reader and can be checked out for free from our campus library or accessed online (print or podcast) via Tomas Engle Senior, Chinese studies

Eric Patrick: ‘Real World’ housemate, WVU alum by david ryan A&E EDITOR

While Mountaineer fans across the country were watching the men’s basketball team head to the Final Four in their living room or favorite sports bar, Eric Patrick was in the mall watching the game. Patrick, who currently appears in MTV’s “The Real World,” was forced to come up with creative ways of watching his alma mater’s progress in the national basketball tournament. “I would have to sneak out of the house,” Patrick said. “I would go to the gym for two hours just so I could watch WVU play basketball because there’s no TV in the house.” Patrick’s allegiance to the Mountaineers even led to division in the “Real World”

house after Duke beat WVU in the Final Four. “There was a war going on in my house, because Ashlie, even though she went to Northeastern, she’s a Duke fan,” he said. “There was a couple weeks when I just didn’t talk to her.” It may be news to some that Patrick has ties to WVU. In the show’s run, there have been fleeting references to the college, and Patrick hasn’t been seen in any college apparel. “Let me tell you something – I bleed blue and gold,” he said. “I would do anything to have worn some WVU gear on the show, but West Virginia University didn’t sign off on it.” According to Chris Martin, vice president of public relations at WVU, the University “really wanted” Patrick to rep-

resent his University on TV. Martin said specific language in a logo release form – known as an indemnity clause – violated West Virginia state law. Marsha Malone, director of WVU’s Trademark Licensing Services, said WVU tried to renegotiate a new release with the producers but never heard back. “It was really important to us that our graduate be able to wear the Flying WV on a national, popular TV show,” Martin said. Despite the breakdown in communication between the producers and WVU, Patrick found ways to represent his college. “When we made it to the Final Four I had to make my own,” he said. “I just put paint on T-shirts and wrote WVU in tape.”

After graduating, Patrick landed a job in the state department, working in public relations. While he worked for the government in the day, he was pursuing his other passion: stand-up comedy. Patrick attributes his time in Morgantown as the moment he realized he “had a knack” for stand-up. “So much crazy stuff would happen to me while I was in school,” he said. “I was telling my friends all my stories and they would die laughing.” His first gig was at the Ramada Hotel. The set lasted for an hour, something he wasn’t prepared for. “One of my friends came out and supported me, it was a good time,” he said. “Somehow I made it work.”

FanFest celebrates Mountaineer spirit, gameday tradition by jake potts

a&e correspondent

Mountaineer football is a tradition recognized near and far. Fans from all over flock to Morgantown to root for the Old Gold and Blue. One way for these fans to unite is through FanFest. FanFest, a pep rally for the football team, is put on annually the weekend of Mountaineer football’s opening home game. “FanFest is a great way for students and community members alike to come out and support the football team,” said Gretchen Hoover, special event coordinator. The event attracts football fans from all over the state. From students on campus to fans driving in for the game, a vast collection of Mountaineer fanatics gather for this special occasion.

With up to 1,000 visitors per event, FanFest is a great way to get team motivation and camaraderie to an all-time high before game day. Hosted by West Virginia Radio’s Tony Caridi, the event takes place on the Mountainlair Green. The Pride of West Virginia marching band will provide entertainment for the event, accompanied by U92. Organized by University Events, partnered with members of Student Government Association and Student Affairs and sponsored by numerous corporations including CocaCola, FanFest has been uniting WVU fans for more than 10 years. The event will include opportunities to win prizes such as Tshirts, foam fingers and other knickknacks. Free food will be available with an opportu-

nity to sample new Coca-Cola products. Appearances include head football coach Bill Stewart, the Pride of West Virginia, head men’s soccer coach Marlon LeBlanc and WVU President James P. Clements, among others. The Mountaineer Maniacs will also be in attendance. During the event, they will receive their official Maniac T-shirts. Also, SGA will be selling its United Way Gold Rush T-shirts for $10 each. These will be worn later in the season as WVU’s fan base unites as one during the Oct. 14 game facing University of South Florida. Proceeds from this game will benefit the United Way Foundation. The Pride will be performing some of its music for the upcoming season during the event. Joe Feeney, freshman chemical engineering major and member of the band, expressed

How to rep WVU on gameday in style BRITTNI MCGUIRE A&E WRITER

Football season is here, which means students have another excuse to go shopping for some new Mountaineer threads. Saturday is the first game of the season, and students will want to beat the heat while still looking hot. When dressing for the game, you need to remember to do two things: keep cool and look good. The best way to do this is pair a lightweight T-shirt or jersey with a pair of shorts. The West Virginia University Bookstore offers plenty of T-shirt options that you can pick up while you’re downtown between classes. Its T-shirts range in price from $17.98 to about $30. If purchasing a shirt from here, I would suggest pairing it with a pair of jean or cargo shorts of your own to save on

cash. If going with a gold shirt, I would pair it with jean shorts for the ladies and cargos for the guys. Jean shorts for guys are never a good idea. If you’re going with a blue shirt, cargo shorts are the best choice. The bookstore also carries ladies-style tank tops in an assortment of colors with “WVU” embroidered on the front, but I would suggest actually wearing school colors to the game. It’s good to stand out, but being the only one wearing pink in a sea of gold and blue is too much. The bookstore recently began selling Victoria’s Secret Collegiate line of WVU clothing in the form of T-shirts, tanks and sun dresses. The VS line puts a girly, stylish spin on Mountaineer gear and is the perfect idea for someone who wants to represent in style. A great standout piece from the collection that the bookstore carries is a white V-neck

T-shirt with a subtle, leopard print background and the flying WV emblem for $26.50. Pair this with a plain pair of cotton or jean shorts for the right look. UniversiTees, located on High Street, has the best deals and the most options. Its T-shirts are priced at $14 with creative logos and countless designs. These T-shirts are the most practical idea for girls and guys. All T-shirts are unisex, so ladies, find a boy who you can share your game gear with. I know I mentioned a piece from the VS collection that has a subtle leopard print but don’t confuse that with the ones for sale at UniversiTees. These T-shirts are black with pink writing and leopard print that should not be worn to the game, like I said before – why represent WVU in anything other than blue and gold? The biggest gameday fashion for guys is a jersey sport-

his excitement for being included in the rally. “It’s a very exciting opportunity to get to play with such a large music program,” Feeney said. The band will be showcasing hits like “Carry On My Wayward Son” by Kansas and “Saturday in the Park” by Chicago. “Being a part of bringing back some classics is really awesome. These are songs that everyone can identify with, and we’re coming a long way in perfecting them,” Feeney said. Being a part of WVU means more than simply being a student in a college. It means being a part of the Mountaineer family and opportunities like these allow for that enthusiasm to be made easy. FanFest begins today at 5 p.m. on the Mountainlair Plaza. daa&

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Defer to others and understand that those around you also need to feel important. You can do that in your customary style when focused. Know that on a professional matter, no one sees eye to eye. Let go and see what happens. Tonight: Find your friends. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH You are among the very few who can accomplish a good day’s work. You might be overworking an issue in your head, giving others the impression that you aren’t listening. Work on your attentiveness. Tonight: Unwind in your style. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH Don’t kid yourself -- you are already out the door mentally and into your weekend. You discover that a lot is happening behind the scenes with a friend. Reconsider your choices. Every so often, revitalizing and questioning your desires is important. You change; they change.

10k race at Coopers Rock to require rock-hopping, stump-jumping by allie vaughn a&e correspondent

With the long Labor Day weekend just around the corner, students can spend one of the last weekends of summer running a 10K race at Coopers Rock State Forest Saturday. The race will test each competitor’s physical endurance and mental strength and is the fifth event in a series of athletic competitions put on by Morgantown Adventure Sports Series. MASS was created by the WVU College of Physical Activity and Sports Science. “MASS was put together for outdoor competition. It gives people a chance to exercise and get outdoors,” said Nathan Kile, program coordinator for the series. Participants should be prepared for more than an easy, flat

trail run. The rolling course will require racers to hop some rocks and jump some stumps. There will be no rain date; the race will take place rain or shine. Race day registration and check-in will be held from 7 a.m. until 8 a.m. at the Main Coopers Rock Overlook parking lot. The race will begin promptly at 8:30 am. The 10K race, which is 6.2 miles, is open to anyone over the age of 14. All participants must sign a race waiver and participants under 18 must also have a parent or guardian’s signature. Pre-registration has ended; however, late registration for the race will be available on the day of the race for $25. Late registers will receive a Tshirt as long as supplies allow. Entry fees are non-refundable. According to Kile, the vast selection of trails at Coopers Rock

made it the easy choice to host the race. Despite the many trails there, the Stump Jump represents a first for the state park. “Coopers has some great trails and has never been host to a 10K trail race in the past,” Kile said. Awards will be given out after the race. The top three overall finishers will receive a trophy and gift card. The top three males and females in each age group will receive awards. The five age groups are 14 to19, 20 to 29, 30 to 39, 40 to 49 and over 50 years. Participants will also earn performancebased points toward cumulative awards at the end of the MASS series. Sponsors of the race include Dynamic Physical Therapy, Pathfinder, Adventure’s Edge,

Hammer Nutrition, Mylan Pharmaceuticals, Big Bear Lake Family Camplands and Morgantown Running. Erin Roush, owner of Morgantown Running, a local running store located in Westover, chose to sponsor the race to help bring more awareness to the new series of athletic competitions. “It’s great to have a local running store sponsor a local race,” Roush said. Roush, an avid runner herself, had encouraging words for the racers. “Have fun with the race,” she said. “Trail runs are a good time to get outside and appreciate nature and the trails. Don’t get lost, and run fast.” Post-race food and refreshments will be provided. daa&

REAL WORLD Continued from page 5

Patrick’s comedy has been featured in the show, performing in bars around New Orleans. Thanks to his exposure on the show, which filmed in New Orleans in January through May of this year, his comedy has become his primary focus, even leaving his job at the state department. “It’s funny, you go on the television for a little bit – I’m not even one of the crazy ones – and next thing you know I’m able to perform at colleges up and down the East Coast,” he said. Patrick will begin touring Sept. 17 and said he hoped to make a stop at WVU. Despite no longer working in public relations, his education and time in Morgantown came in handy with dealing with the tensions of the “Real World” house. In Wednesday’s episode,

Patrick was often seen mediating between controversial roommate Ryan and the rest of his house mates. “It was pretty awful living with Ryan,” he said. “Not something I would ever want to do again.” Ryan left in the final moments of the episode. The atmosphere of Morgantown, he said, helped him be able to cope with the antics in the show. “If I hadn’t already lived through wild mayhem in Morgantown, I probably wouldn’t have been able to cope with what happened in “The Real World,” he said. Prior to his involvement in the season, Patrick wasn’t a regular viewer of the longrunning reality series. In fact, he wasn’t even responsible for the application that led to his casting – his brother was, sending an email to the show. “It was the craziest, most douchey thing anybody could have ever said in an e-

mail,” he said. “It was something like ‘Hey, my name is Eric, I work for the state department. I like comedy, I like to party, people call me P money. Holla’,” Patrick said. He thought a reply was fake. It was only when plans for breakfast had fallen through Patrick decided to go ahead and follow up with the show. Despite being featured for his comedy and for helping cool roommate drama, Patrick hasn’t been seen much on-screen – something he, and others approaching him, have noticed. “It’s not like I wasn’t around,” he said. “Whenever a fight started to occur, I would usually leave the room. When everyone argued about the car, I bought a bike. That’s just my kind of personality. “The main reason is just me not being totally insane in my head,” he said.

“Warp Riders” The Sword «««««

“Tomorrow Morning” The Eels «««««

Two years after its commercially successful record “Gods of the Earth,” stoner metal band The Sword has released an accessible album titled “Warp Riders.” The CD is a science-fiction-themed concept album and opens with an instrumental “Acheron/Unearthing the Orb,” which sounds like an allusion to thrash favorites Slayer with its building guitar solos and thrashy drum beats. The single “Tres Brujas” is a catchy rock song with a guitar groove similar to Pantera. Another standout track from the album is “Night City,” which sounds like a rock song that belongs in the 1970s. “Astrea’s Dream” is a song with a riff-filled intro that evolves into a thrashy mess with loopy guitar solos. Most of the songs stand on the borderline between thrash metal and hard rock. Showing an equal amount of inspiration to Deep Purple as to old school Metallica. Warp Riders exemplifies a retro sound, which is what other Sabbath-inspired bands like Baroness and Mastodon. After only four years since their debut album, “Age of Winters,” the band shows tons of promise. — der

The Eels are known for its unique take on music since their 1996 debut, “Beautiful Freak,” and their latest album is no different. “Tomorrow Morning” finishes the band’s trilogy of concept albums, starting with 2009’s “Hombre Lobo” and continued by “End Times,” which came out earlier this year. Unlike the previous, darker albums, “Tomorrow Morning” seems to be a happier foray into music by the band. One of the more notable songs is “Spectacular Girl,” which features the traditional Eels style, but in a new way, as if they had rewritten one of their classics like “Grace Kelly Blues.” “After the Earthquake” is a mesmerizing instrumental piece that seems to combine renaissance music and electronica with good results. Another haunting song is “Oh So Lovely,” which features a fantasy feel that makes it a memorable love ditty. “Looking Up” is worth listening to, if only because it goes for an old-school rock ‘n’ roll feel and seems like it belongs in the ‘60s. While the album does feature a few songs that aren’t particularly great, none of them are bad, with each bringing something unique to the table. — jac

“Grace Potter ... ” Grace Potter...The Nocturnals ««««« Indie soul group Grace Potter and the Nocturnals’ recently-released, self-titled album is a compilation of genres from folk to rock to jazz and even gospel influences, with one constant factor: powerhouse vocals from female lead singer Potter. Although the majority of the album is the soulful and straining, but impressively strong, voice of Potter in ballads like “Things I never needed,” there are also tracks that showcase the energetic Janice Joplin-like squealing side of the singer, such as “Paris.” While it’s hard to choose the actual highlight of the album, with a variety of sounds all coupled with witty lyrics, tracks “One Short Night” and “Low Road” showcase the core of Grace and her Nocturnals: soul. “One Short Night” gives listeners a taste of Potter’s raspy and playful voice but with an upbeat and funky back track. “Low Road” is proof the band hasn’t forgotten its original taste and is a perfect example of what the band is all about: a slow and simple display of the best vocals around, singing about real life experiences, people and emotions. — mdm

Rapper T.I. arrested for possession (AP) — after finishing a sentence for weapons charges earlier this year, T.I. was poised to have the comeback of the fall. The multiplatinum rapper starred in the nation’s No. 1 movie, recently married his longtime girlfriend, taped a music special for VH1 and was wrapping up a new album. But after an arrest Wednesday in California, there are questions about whether he’s returning to the music charts – or prison. The Grammy-winning hitmaker, who is on three years of probation, was taken into custody with wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle on suspicion of possessing methamphetamines after police pulled over their Maybach in West Hollywood. They were released on $10,000 bail early Thursday. While charges have yet to be filed, the case has the potential to put one of music’s top names behind bars yet again. “We’re not making any observations at this time,” said Ed Garland, a defense attorney for T.I. “This is an unfortunate occurrence, and we do not know what the outcome will be.” His music label, Atlantic Records, also said it “would be premature to speculate about the current situation given that there is an ongoing investigation of this matter.” Known as the “King of the South,” T.I is a top name in hiphop and pop. Born as Clifford Harris, he sold millions of albums since his debut and racked up hits like “Whatever You Like” and “U Don’t Know Me.” He also had top collaborations with artists including Rihanna, Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake. But his celebrated career was put in jeopardy in 2007 when he was caught trying to buy semi-

Police say Rapper T.I. and wife Tameka Cottle have been arrested in West Hollywood for possession of a controlled substance late Wednesday. automatic weapons on the way to a BET Awards show. The Atlanta rapper, who has served time for drug and other offenses, pleaded guilty to weapons charges and served seven months in an Arkansas prison and three months in a halfway house in Georgia. He was ordered not to commit another federal, state or local crime while on supervised release or to illegally possess a controlled substance. He was also told to take at least three drug tests after his release and to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment program. T.I. didn’t appear to need government intervention to stay out of trouble. The rapper talked of a new, positive start: He spoke to kids about the dangers of drugs and guns, and former United Nations Ambassador Andrew Young was one of his supporters. As he prepared for his most recent sentence, the rapper starred in the MTV reality show, “T.I.’s Road to Redemption: 45 Days to Go.” “Right now, it’s all about moving forward and just acknowledging the blessings that are

here today. ... Just moving past the regrets of yesterday – the things that could’ve been done better,” T.I. told The Associated Press in July. After his release, he wasted little time returning to the spotlight. He released new music and was one of the stars of “Takers,” a shoot-’em-up about an armored truck robbery that goes bad. He is working on an album, which was slated to come out this year, and last month, he taped a VH1 “Storytellers” performance. T.I. also married Cottle, the former singer for the 1990s R&B group Xscape; she has found new fame as the star of the BET reality show “Tiny & Toya.” Cottle took to her Twitter on Thursday, thanking fans for support and prayers. “We love u guys:) going 2bed now! So glad 2b n a nice clean bed,” she wrote. A representative for VH1 said it was too early to determine how his arrest might affect the upcoming special. A representative for “Takers” did not immediately return a request for comment.

Activists enraged over Nike’s WVU uniforms advertisement MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — After angry environmentalists objected to a Nike promotional ad for a new West Virginia University football uniform, the athletic apparel giant said Thursday it will modify a graphic depicting a mountaintop removal mine. Nike issued a statement through the University, repeating what the school had said earlier in the day: The new black and white Pro Combat uniform was designed to honor the heritage of coal mining and the 29 men killed in the April explosion at Upper Big Branch mine. “We are modifying the graphic of the player on our website to address concerns,” the statement said. The Oregon-based company did not return repeated messages from The Associated Press. The Mountaineers will wear the coal-themed uniform for only one game this season, the Nov. 26 Backyard Brawl at Pittsburgh. Nike paid for the new gear. The problem environmental activists had with the ad was not the color of the gear – offwhite that appears coated in coal dust – or the number 29 on the coal-black helmets. It’s the depiction of a mountaintop removal mine behind the image of a player, complete with flat, treeless mountaintop, the sound of an explosion and the image of falling rock. The ad appeared to be a tacit endorsement of the controversial form of strip mining, the activists argued. Before Nike announced it would modify the ad, oppo-

Mountaintop removal mining activists are demanded Nike pull its promotional ad because it features a strip mine. The gear was designed in tribute to 29 men killed in the Upper Big Branch mine explosion. But activists,including Bob Webb, point out the mine was an underground operation. sition was rampant. Danny Chiotos of Charleston, youth organizer for the Student Environmental Action Coalition, said that WVU football is a uniting force for a small state that lacks a professional team, and for the university to seemingly take a side upsets people. “I’m largely amused by it and kind of bewildered by it,” Chiotos said. “They should come up with a better ad that actually promotes WVU football and the memory of the miners and mine safety.” By depicting a surface mine that also resembles the open

pit mines of western states like Wyoming, the original ad also missed a key point about Upper Big Branch: The Massey Energy Co. mine that exploded April 5 was an underground operation. The graphics were designed by Nike and reviewed by WVU officials. “The intent was for the player on the field to be surrounded by coal and not as an endorsement of any one form of mining technology,” WVU athletics said in a brief e-mail. The ad plunged both the school and the world’s largest athletic shoe and clothing

It’s a pair of juniors who lead the Chanticleers on offense, however – tight end David Duran and guard Tim Franklin. Duran caught 19 passes for 273 yards a season ago, second only to current senior Brandon Whitley who hauled in 31 receptions for 483 yards and four touchdowns. Senior Zach MacDowall returns for his third year as the CCU starting quarterback. After throwing 16 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2008, MacDowall nearly lost his starting role last year to backup Jamie Childers after throwing 11 interceptions compared to nine touchdowns. The Chanticleers’ leading returning rusher is Eric O’Neal, a senior who takes over for the graduated Tommy Fraser. O’Neal ended with 89 attempts for 406 yards and two scores a year ago. Despite the veteran leadership on the CCU offense, West Virginia’s Chris Neild said it will be hard to figure out the Coastal Carolina offense until they match up against it in the game. “The first game of the year is always the hardest game to judge,” Neild said. “It’s going to

be tough to get a read on them. They have a lot of different personnel from last season.” CCU returns three of four defensive backs from 2009, including all-American Josh Norman at cornerback. Norman finished with eight interceptions and 15 pass breakups to lead the Chanticleer defense, which finished 2009 ranked 15th nationally in pass defense. CCU will only start three seniors on defense with its youngest group being the defensive line. Sophomore defensive end Quinton Davis is the most experienced of the group after starting 10 games a season ago and ending with 33 tackles. The rest of the defensive line has started a combined five games, all of which from junior Dexter Holman – the oldest player in the group. “I know their coach, and he’s done a great job with them in the last few years,” Stewart said. “They will be physical, and they’ll play hard. That’s how they play ball.” The Mountaineers have never faced Coastal Carolina, whose program was established in 2003. CCU is 3-4 all-time in season-openers, including losing its last four openers.

five circle ending with an accumulation of a huddle. When I see that, I know it’s game time. Perhaps nothing else aside from the game itself can make a gameday afternoon other than the “Pride of West Virginia,” the Mountaineer marching band. Man, Ohio State may be the “Best Damn Band in the Land,” but WVU’s band provides “the Finest Thrills in the Hills.” Freshmen, if you don’t get chills when they play “Simple Gifts,” you don’t have a pulse. Now during the game, when the Mountaineers are on defense and it’s third down, I’d like to quote T-Pain when I say “Everybody hands go up.” Throw your hands up, start yelling and make your hands “stay there.” Make the Coastal Carolina offense wish they’d never come to Morgantown. ESPN was tough on us last year in terms of our crowd experience. Students, make sure the television commentators know that Morgantown will always be the toughest place to play in the Big East and in the whole country. On offense, the first down cheer. Ever heard of it? Throw your hands up once again. Start with a loud “ooooo.” When the public address announcer says “first down West Virginia,” slam your arms

football, and I will not watch WVU again,” said Webb, who was in Washington, D.C., with other activists on Monday, urging President Barack Obama’s administration to outlaw mountaintop removal. It was a prelude to a much larger “Appalachia Rising” rally planned for Sept. 27. “I hope the players understand that they’re being used and rise up. I’d like them to say, ‘I’m not being pimped out by Nike and the state of West Virginia and the coal industry,” he said, “and I would like to see WVU admit, ‘We made a huge mistake.’”

It is also a sink or swim season for WVU head coach Bill Stewart. It is his third year at the helm – a good gauge on how he has implemented his system. With an explosive team coming back, it will definitivly be an exciting season to bear witness to. The team will do its part, but more importantly, you need to as well. I’m talking about you, students. I want to see a packed student section decked out in Old Gold from the time the gates open at 2 p.m. Those upper, lower and senior spirit sections better be packed from top to bottom.

maker into one of West Virginia’s most emotionally charged and political divisive issues. Mountaintop removal was the sole issue of a candidate who ran in last week’s special primary to fill the seat of late U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd, and both industry and environmentalists are lobbying the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency over the practice. Naoma activist Bo Webb demanded the immediate removal of the ad and apologies to the people in the southern coalfields who have been hurt by mountaintop mining. “I am so angry. I love

Webb said it’s possible the ad was designed by an artist who didn’t realize the implications of using strip mine imagery, but he’s skeptical of Oregon-based Nike. “Maybe they’re naive, but I doubt it,” he said. “I seriously doubt it.” Mountaintop removal is done mainly in West Virginia, Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee. Forests are clearcut, explosives blast apart the ridgetops, and massive machines scoop the exposed coal from multiple seams. The debris left behind is dumped into valleys, covering streams with what are called valley fills. Coal operators say it’s the most efficient way to reach some reserves, but people who live near the mines say it’s too destructive, ruining their home values, their environment and their health. The industry, too, is planning a rally in Washington. Its Sept. 15 event will focus on what it considers unfair regulations and the need for jobs. WVU senior Joe Gorman said Nike and the school should honor underground miners “without glorifying the mountaintop removal that’s destroying West Virginia’s heritage and the mountains that make us the Mountaineers.” “The ad says, ‘It’s just the way things are done in West Virginia,’” Gorman said, “but miners and residents of the southern coalfields have been fighting strip mining and mountaintop removal since before I was born, and that’s something to be proud of, too.”

WVU tries to even its record at home vs. Central Michigan BY brad Joyal sports writer

The West Virginia women’s soccer team has had ups and downs during its first three games. Head coach Nikki IzzoBrown has seen some upside from her team, but also knows there is room for improvement. The team has struggled to hit the back of the net. In fact, top scorers from previous seasons Megan Mischler and Blake Miller have yet to score a goal. Izzo-Brown is confident Mischler and Miller would find the back of the net by the end as they became better acclimated. “I think it’s (about) getting back and getting comfortable playing,” Izzo-Brown said. “A forward’s job is definitely to put numbers up and create chances. They’ve got to work a little harder to create chances and create opportunities. They need to be a little more special around the net.” Mischler, Miller and the Mountaineers have a difficult challenge Saturday night against Central Michigan. The Chippewas were the 2009 Mid-Atlantic Conference champions and return the core of their team for the 2010 season. Central Michigan enters the season at 3-1 with wins coming over Wright State, IPFW and Northern Iowa. The Chippewas lost to Iowa this season in their last match. CM was picked as the favorites to win the MAC as they return all 11 starters from their 2009 team. Izzo-Brown is less worried about Central Michigan and more concerned with her own team heading into Saturday’s contest. “We need to complete a

This team knows that from start to finish we have to be ready. That’s what happened at Ohio State, we had a sevenminute lapse and it cost us.” The Mountaineers will be able to compete against another potential NCAA Tournament team, providing another opportunity to build experience against a quality opponent. Izzo-Brown kept her expectations for Saturday night’s game simple; the coach realizes the tough opponent the team will be facing. But, at this point in the season, it’s an easy concept: The Mountaineers need to win some games. “They are definitely a tournament team, and they won their conference last year so it’s going to be a tough game,” Izzo-Brown said. “But we need to get some wins, especially at home.”

If Roethlisberger followed the league’s guidelines and stayed out of trouble, Goodell said he would consider cutting the suspension to four games. While Roethlisberger is likely to contend that his conduct has been exemplary and the penalty should be cut even further, perhaps to three games, NFL officials have emphasized that Goodell’s initial ruling specified a punishment of at least four games. Steelers president Art Rooney II is expected to accompany Roethlisberger to the meeting. Goodell’s ruling was made in consultation with Rooney and the Steelers, who were angered by the two-time Super Bowl quarterback’s behavior and would have punished him if the league hadn’t.

quent contact with the Steelers’ ownership and is expected to announce shortly after the meeting whether the suspension will be shortened. Roethlisberger was encouraged last month when Goodell said he was going “above and beyond” what the league asked him. The quarterback spent considerable time during training camp interacting with fans, working at charitable and youth functions and appearing at children’s hospitals. “I’m very encouraged by what he’s doing,” Goodell said at Steelers training camp Aug. 5. Asked what the league still needs to see, Goodell said, “He’s got to work through the program that’s designed for him to help him. A lot of that is confidential, but he’s done it and he’s done it with enthusiasm. I think that’s a good thing.”

West Virginia not worried about slowing Hawks’ explosive offense by Michael Carvelli Sports Writer


Big Ben suspension likely to be reduced PITTSBURGH (AP)—Ben Roethlisberger’s first big gain of the season may occur weeks before he returns to the field. His six-game suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy likely will be shortened to four games by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell after the two meet in New York on Friday. The meeting will take place about 12 hours after the quarterback plays in the Steelers’ final preseason game against the Carolina Panthers in Pittsburgh. The league plans to review Roethlisberger’s behavior since he was accused of sexually assaulting a Georgia college student following a night of drinking in a Milledgeville, Ga., bar on March 5. Once it was determined six weeks later that Roethlisberger would not be charged by Georgia authorities, Goodell suspended

Gaddis, Mountaineers must stop strong attack of No. 9 Monmouth

The West Virginia men’s soccer team is much different heading into the 2010 season than it was in 2009. When it came time for the Mountaineers’ first game against UC-Santa Barbara, they sent five freshmen out with their first 11. And as a freshman, playing in front of a record crowd isn’t an easy task. Fast forward to 2010 and WVU is gearing up to play in front of another potential record-setting crowd. But the difference this year is the experience that those freshmen picked up last year. Now, playing in big games is like nothing for this young, but experienced group of players. “For some people, it might be nerve-racking playing in front of that many people,” said sophomore forward Peabo Doue. “I just get excited. I see a lot of my family and friends up there screaming my name, and it just gets me even more pumped to play.” Games don’t get much bigger than the one tonight, as the Mountaineers welcome No. 9 Monmouth to Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium at 7 p.m. in what is expected to be the fourth time in school history a crowd a surpassed the stadium’s 1,600 fan capacity. The Hawks won a school-record 18 games last season and did so by scoring a lot of goals. In 2009, Monmouth tripled the goal total of the Mountaineers, scoring 36 times during the season. Leading the way for the Hawks was midfielder/forward Ryan Kinne. The preseason all-American scored

Coming into Friday’s game, he didn’t have a lineup set in stone quite yet. “I think the groups that started the games were strong, and we should be able to bring a lot more fresh legs in this year, especially in the midfield,” LeBlanc said. “Once we get into the season, you’ll be able to see how much of an impact that depth will have.” zz WVU expects a packed house for the Monmouth game and has even brought in extra bleachers to accommodate the anticipated crowd at Dick Dlesk Stadium. In 2009, WVU was in the top 25 nationally for attendance, averaging 1,021 fans per home game. The Mountaineers averaged 386 in 2005, the year before LeBlanc took over. zz Dick Dlesk Stadium holds 1,600 fans, and tonight’s crowd is expected to be the fourth time in school history that attendance has been over seating capacity for the stadium. zz It will be interesting to see which freshmen see action against the Hawks. Aside from the three transfers, there were only two newcomers who saw significant action in the exhibitions, forward Brooks Nucilli and midfielder Julio Arjona. — Compiled by Michael Carvelli

Boston’s Pedroia may need season-ending surgery


St John’s University Parish

10 times, including six gamewinners and assisted on seven goals. “I’m not worried about the defense stopping them. They’ve been the backbone of this team since I’ve been here,” LeBlanc said. “I’ve got the best goalkeeper in America, in my opinion, and some of the best defenders. “It’s just a matter of going out and taking care of business.” If the Mountaineer defense can slow down Monmouth offensively, West Virginia should just need to worry about putting the ball in the back of the net against the stellar Hawks defense, which is led by senior goalkeeper and Hermann Trophy candidate Bryan Meredith. Meredith allowed just nine goals last year and earned shutouts in 14 of Monmouth’s 18 wins. “He’s definitely a great keeper,” Doue said. “We’ll need to take a lot of shots, and I know that our forwards and midfielders can be creative enough to get some shots past them.” For the first time in a few years, the Mountaineers are entering the first game without any serious injuries. “The last two years have been very tough for us because of all the injuries we’ve had,” LeBlanc said. “Not just ankle twists, we’re talking about surgical injuries that decimated this team.” It is only the second meeting between the two teams. The Mountaineers first played Monmouth in 2002 in Morgantown when West Virginia escaped with a 1-0 win in overtime on a Monmouth own goal.

BALTIMORE (AP)—Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is bracing for the possibility of having season-ending surgery on his broken left foot. Pedroia will be examined on Friday. “I have a CT scan early in the morning,” Pedroia said Thursday before Boston’s game against the Orioles. “If I have to have surgery, we’ll do it later in the day.” The injury originally occurred in late June. Pedroia returned for two games in August, then went

back on the 15-day disabled list. The 2008 AL MVP and the Red Sox hoped for his return this month, but his recovery hasn’t gone as swiftly as anticipated. Pedroia acknowledged surgery is probably the best solution. “I think that would make it heal more,” he said. “They said there’s like a 50 percent chance that (without surgery) I could feel better and still, like what happened last time: I played two games and not be able to walk the next day.”

It’s go time for WVU Mountaineers kick off 2010 season with Coastal Carolina BY BRIAN GAWTHROP ASSOCIATE SPORTS EDITOR

It was more of a wake-up call than a scare. When the West Virginia football team hosted Liberty in the opening game of the 2009 season, what was projected to be a runaway victory in the Mountaineers’ favor turned into a four-quarter battle. The two teams were tied for most of the first quarter before the Mountaineers scored 13 points in the second quarter. West Virginia won 33-20, although Liberty matched WVU point-for-point after halftime. “We learned last season that you need to finish the deal and that I-AA football is not bad football,” said WVU head coach Bill Stewart. “I don’t take any game for granted. We play them all one at a time.” Stewart will be taking that same approach Saturday when the Mountaineers host Coastal

Carolina in both teams’ season opener. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. at Milan Puskar Stadium. West Virginia is paying Coastal Carolina $350,000 to play this weekend. That money usually goes toward summer school for athletes and the CCU Athletic Department, according to Chanticleer head coach David Bennett. “I think in today’s economy, we have to put it more toward our operations budget,” said Bennett, who is 50-29 in seven seasons with the Chanticleers. “That money helps the whole university. That is imperative to make it in today’s economy.” While Coastal Carolina ended 6-6 last season, the team returns 23 starters, including six seniors on offense, and was picked to finish third in the seven-team Big South Conference.

West Virginia holds a team prayer after one of its games during the 2009 season. The Mountaineers open the season tomorrow against Coastal Carolina.

MATTHEW PEASLEE sports writer

The night before football ‘Twas the night before kickoff, and all through Mo-Town, fans were dreaming of a Big East Conference crown. The RVs were parked in the Blue Lot with care in hopes that a gameday atmosphere soon would be there. OK, I am going to save us all the trouble and just stop before this gets out of hand. What I’m trying to say is that I will have trouble sleeping tonight, and I’m sure many of you reading this will as well. Tomorrow is opening day, the dawning of a new chapter in West Virginia history. Just writing that last statement gave me chills. This is a big year for myself and the Mountaineer football team. It will be my last season to witness games as a student (barring senioritis kicking in early, and I begin to tank. Don’t worry mom, I’m on top of everything).
