BOWLING OVER GREEN “I just told them downstairs, don’t ever take a victory for granted. We earned this one. Bouncing back from last week’s disappointing loss, we were able to commit and get the win.” — WVU head coach Dana Holgorsen

City natives named King and Queen by lydia nuzum

associate city editor

Julie Diamond and Evan Bonnstetter were crowned West Virginia University’s Homecoming King and Queen during the WVU vs. Bowling Green football game Saturday. Bonnstetter, a senior public relations and Spanish double-major, said he was grateful for the opportunity to be selected as this year’s homecoming king. “I’m just really excited that people took the time to come out and vote for me,” Bonnstetter said. “I hope they believe that I’m representative of what it means to be a true Mountaineer.” Bonnstetter, a member of the WVU Honors College, serves as both an instructor of an Honors 199 class and an Honors In-Hall tutor. He serves as a student liaison for the Gold and Blue Student Ambassadors and was a member of the Student Government Association from 2009 to 2011. “I want to stay active on campus and within the community, and make sure WVU stays in a positive light as a whole,” Bonnstetter said. Bonnstetter is a member of the WVU club tennis team and the Alpha Kappi Psi business fraternity, an organization for which he has served as pledge class community service chair, pledge board, pledge master and warden. He actively particpates in service with the Ronald McDonald House, Sundale Nursing Home and Morgantown Public Library. Bonnstetter, a Morgantown native, said he enjoyed the game and the homecoming weekend experience. “I’ve been going to games since I was little since I’m from Morgantown,” Bonnstetter said. “Even in the rain, it was a great experience.”

New mobile app released for Morgantown by mike atkinson correspondent

Main Street Morgantown has released a new mobile application allowing information about Downtown or Wharf district businesses to be accessible through smart phones. The new mobile app helps residents find information about any business downtown in the business directory, search for a local event to attend with the calendar, read local news and announcements, or donate to local organizations. The app was created by Casey Cid, owner of Media Thirty Seven, an integrated marketing, web design and mobile app development business based in Morgantown. “Research shows that a majority of the population downtown carries a mobile device,” Cid said. Barbara Watkins, assistant director of Main Street Morgantown, said smart phones are becoming more prevalent, especially among West Virginia University students in Morgantown. “Almost all of the students we see downtown are on a mobile device. It is convenient, already in hand, and all they have to do is push a button. Smart phone use will eventually pass computer use,” Watkins said.

West Virginia neurobiology professor discovers unique leg muscles by jessica lear staff writer

West Virginia University professor Wayne Lambert has recently discovered a new leg muscle. Lambert, a professor in the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy, said his research focus has been finding unique leg muscles, of which he has found several in the past few years. In 2010, Lambert discovered a muscle he called the anterior fibulocalcaneus muscle. Lambert said he thought the mus-

cle discovery was a solitary finding, but further research told him otherwise. “I thought this muscle was a once-in-a-lifetime discovery. However, we have identified five additional examples of the anterior fibulocalcaneus muscle,” Lambert said. Lambert’s findings were published in the Clinical Anatomy Journal in September. Since the discovery of the anterior fibulocaneus, Lambert has found another unique muscle called the fibulocalcaneus internus muscle. “The paper will include the

first gross anatomical photograph of this unique leg muscle and represents the first gross anatomical case study of this muscle since 1914,” he said. The reasoning behind Lambert’s research is to find the clinical and surgical implications of the presence of these muscles in patients. “Radiologists and clinicians should be aware of anatomical variability when considering various diagnoses, interpreting radiographs and pursuing surgical intervention to relieve the patient’s symptoms,” he said. He said his participation

in translational research is to maximize good patient care in West Virginia, his home state. He also said he shares his anatomy discoveries to his students. “Through cadaveric dissection, you realize that the anatomy of every person is unique,” he said. “It is a very important lesson for my students – our future clinicians – to see differences in each of their future patients.” Lambert said his favorite part of his job is teaching anatomy to medical and dental students and they have some-

times influenced his research. “Students have always improved, often dramatically, the final product of my research and pushed my projects forward,” he said. His students will likely play a big role in his next research study, Lambert said, which will include getting an image of the fibulocalcaneus internus muscle and determining its function and how it affects patients. The first muscle Lambert discovered, the anterior fibulocalcaneus muscle, after its location on the anterior of the leg, its proximity to the fibula,

and its insertion into the calcaneus, or heel bone. The second muscle, the fibulocalcaneus internus muscle, is one of the rarest muscular variants associated with the ankle joint, he said. It is thought to be involved in posterior ankle pain and tarsal tunnel syndrome, or carpal tunnel syndrome in the leg. Lambert, a native of Keyser, has co-authored or contributed to seven anatomy

Wall Street protesters: ‘We’re in for the long haul’ NEW YORK (AP) — The protesters who have been camping out in Manhattan’s Financial District for more than two weeks eat donated food and keep their laptops running with a portable gas-powered generator. They have a newspaper – the Occupied Wall Street Journal – and a makeshift hospital. They lack a clear objective, though they speak against corporate greed, social inequality, global climate change and other concerns. But they’re growing in numbers, getting more organized and show no sign of quitting. City officials “thought we were going to leave and we haven’t left,” 19-year-old protester Kira Moyer-Sims said. “We’re going to stay as long as we can.” Saturday’s arrests of more than 700 protesters who tried to cross the Brooklyn Bridge appeared to do little to dampen enthusiasm Sunday. The Occupy Wall Street demonstration started out last month with less than a dozen college students spending days and nights in Zuccotti Park, a private plaza off Broadway. It has grown sizably, however, both in New York City and elsewhere as people across the country, from Boston to Los Angeles, display their solidarity in similar protests. Moyer-Sims, of Portland, Ore., said the group has grown much more organized. “We have a protocol for most things,” she said, including getting legal help for people who are arrested. The protest has drawn protesters of diverse ages and occupations, including Jackie

It’s about big money dictating which politicians get elected and what programs get funded,” she said. On Sunday, a group of New York public school teachers sat in the plaza, including Denise Martinez of Brooklyn. She most students at her school live at or below the poverty level, and her classes are jammed with up to about 50 students. “These are America’s future workers, and what’s trickling down to them are the problems – the unemployment, the crime,” she said. She blamed Wall Street for causing the country’s financial problems and said it needed to do more to solve them. Police officers have been a regular sight at the plaza, but NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said the protest has not led the department to assign additional officers to the area. The department won’t change its approach to handling the protest and will continue regular patrols and monitoring, he said. “As always, if it is a lawful demonstration, we help facilitate and if they break the law we arrest them,” Browne said. The Fire Department said it had gone to the site several times over the past week to check for any fire safety hazards arising from people living in the plaza, but there have been no major issues. The protesters have spent most of their time in the plaza, sleeping on air mattresses, holding assemblies

cial. On Oct. 1, more than 700 people were arrested as the group attempted to cross the Brooklyn Bridge. Some of the protesters said they were lured onto the roadway by police, or they didn’t hear the calls from authorities to head to the pedestrian walkway. Police said no one was tricked into being arrested, and that those in the back of the group who couldn’t hear were allowed to

leave. The NYPD on Sunday released video footage to back up its stance. In one of the videos, an official uses a bullhorn to warn the crowd. Marchers can be seen chanting, “Take the bridge.” Browne said that of the most recent arrests, the vast majority had been released. Eight people were still being held Sunday, three because of outstanding warrants and five

others who refused to show any identification. Gatherings elsewhere included one in Providence, R.I., that attracted about 60 people to a public park. The participants called it a “planning meeting” and initially debated whether to allow reporters to cover it. In Boston, protesters set up an encampment across the street from the Federal Reserve Building.

Latest LA art project is 340 tons LOS ANGELES (AP) — King Sisyphus, it turns out, had little on the folks at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. In Greek mythology, Sisyphus was condemned by the gods to push a giant rock up a hill for eternity. In modernday LA, the city’s largest museum has spent months – and $5 million to $10 million – trying to get a 340-ton boulder from a dusty quarry in Riverside onto its campus west of downtown. When the teardrop-shaped chunk of granite finally arrives it will become the focal point of acclaimed earth artist Michael Heizer’s latest creation, “Levitated Mass.” Museum visitors by the thousands are expected to walk under what will be one of the largest environmental art creations ever placed in an urban setting. Heizer “came up in a generation that wasn’t just about what you could create or sculpt in the studio,” said Rochelle Steiner, dean of the University of Southern California’s Roski School of Fine Arts. “It was about how you could intervene in the elements, in your own environment, in the landscape, and how the environment became not just your subject matter but your situation as well.” The reclusive Heizer is perhaps best known for “Double Negative,” the 1,500-foot-long land sculpture he cut into a desert mesa in a remote section of southern Nevada. “Levitated Mass” will be a major coup for the museum, Steiner said, and will provide the general public a rare opportunity to see Heizer’s work up close. But before that can hap-

At the Stone Valley quarry, on the outskirts of Riverside, a 196-wheel, 44-axle transport vehicle strong enough to hold more than a million pounds is being constructed. With drivers, steerers and police escorts, as many as 60 people could be involved in the move. “It will be an entourage,” laughed Rick Albrecht, who is supervising the rock’s move for Emmert International, an outfit that specializes in moving really big stuff. Although Emmert has never hauled a rock the size of a two-

story house before, Albrecht appears undaunted by the challenge. “This might be the first time for a rock but our company moved a building in Salt Lake City that was equivalent to a five-story,” he said during a recent day at the quarry, as workers with welding torches worked on the transport vehicle. “It was almost 60 foot wide, it was a little over a hundred feet long, and we had to jack it up 14 feet, spin it 180 degrees, move it across the street and jack it back down.” Compared to that, he indicated, the rock will be a piece of cake.

Mountaineer Idol, Make-A-Wish give back by ashley hite

a&e correspondent

Friday’s Mountaineer Idol round was a night of hopes, chances and dreams. The Mountainlair Ballrooms were filled with students cheering on their favorite contestants and special guests from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The foundation set up a table where they sold cupcakes donated by Morgantown’s Cupcakerie and offered MakeA-Wish stars. Proceeds went to the MakeA-Wish Foundation, to help make a child’s wish come true. The Make-A-Wish Foundation had a brief video at the beginning of Mountaineer Idol that showed the stories of two children and their families. “It’s for children who have their lives altered by a disease they can’t control,” said Rickie Huffman, vice presi-

dent of West Virginia University’s Wishmakers on Campus. Students who are a part of Wishmakers on Campus can work and gain community service hours while helping to make a child’s wish come true. Matt Boczanowski and Amanda Hughart hosted the show again, alongside special Make-A-Wish guest Lauren Musgrove. Musgrove attends East Fairmont Junior High and was a recipient of a Disney cruise. Continuing with the night’s theme, Hughart announced that they will be collecting stuffed animals for the WVU Children’s Hospital in front of the administration offices in the Mountainlair. Each contestant got to share a story of charity work they had done in the past. For some participants these stories included building homes for hurricane Katrina victims, and others volunteered at the Special

Olympics. Judges for the night included rock ‘n’ roll celebrity Al Anderson and 10-year-old Haley, who had met singer and actress Miley Cyrus as part of her wish. Anderson did a special performance of “Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown” while the judges tabulated the final scores. The night continued on with the elimination round in which each contestant performed a classic song matching the oldies theme. Last week three contestants were eliminated, and the top 10 continued on to Friday’s round. From this third elimination round, two contestants said goodbye. The Moutaineer Idol Facebook contest guaranteed that one contestant had immunity and would automatically go on to the next round. With six hundred and fortyfour votes, Alyssa Fazzini won

immunity. Fazzini shocked the crowd when she walked off stage during her rendition of “Stand By Me” and joined her friends in the back of the ballrooms so they could sing the song with her. “My friends love to sing it on the PRT before games,” Fazzini said. “I had immunity, so I knew no matter what I did it wouldn’t matter.” The remaining eight who will be in the fourth elimination round in two weeks are Alyssa Fazzini, Farah Famouri, Patrick Garcia, Jilsel Harris, Ellis Lambert, Scott Link, Chelsea Malone and Amy Schriner. The theme of the next round is country and will be held in the Mountainlair Ballrooms on October 13 at 8:30 p.m. This will be the second-tolast elimination round before the final competition. daa&

Latest release from metal monsters Mastodon surpasses previous work Hunter Homistek a&e Writer

Atlanta, Ga., progressive metal quartet Mastodon has released its fifth studio album, “The Hunter” under Reprise Records. Hailed as the “saviors of modern metal music,” Mastodon is not unfamiliar with the spotlight and the responsibilities and duties such an honor entails. What is fun to watch about them, though, is how they react and respond to such a position. Following their 2009 release “Crack the Skye,” an al-

bum that was met with incredibly high reviews and was ubiquitously considered a definitive metal album of the year, many were wondering how Mastodon could possibly top such a masterpiece. As they have done so many times in the past, the grizzlylooking guys of Mastodon proved they are up for any challenge in recording “The Hunter.” This album has it all for me – it is the perfect blend of technicality and melody, the ideal amount of jawdropping technical passages combined with just enough hooks and catchy riffs and choruses. Refusing to be confined to

a single genre, “The Hunter” combines elements of sludge metal, progressive metal, classic rock, and straightforward, pure heavy metal. This is what defines the album for me, and it is what keeps the album fresh from start to finish. Songs like “Curl of the Burl” remind me of old school Black Label Society “Sonic Brew” era. It is a masterpiece defined by fuzzy, low-tuned guitars and vocalist Brett Hind’s keen sense of melody. This is the song you jam with the windows down and bang your head to start to finish. On the other hand, opening track “Black Tongue,” which is also the new sin-

gle from the album, showcases their progressive roots more than other offerings. This song almost belongs in “Crack the Skye” stylistically, but Mastodon has employed a song structure in “The Hunter” which deviates from their usual style of long, multiple-passage epics. “Black Tongue” is a concise offering which sums up Mastodon well in its three and a half minute span. It is progressive but still melodic, technical but still catchy. The main riff is simple, but it is layered with such a technical drum beat that their talents musically are not lost. Mastodon is, in this way,

one of the few bands in today’s metal scene to truly understand the line between a casual fan and a hard-core musician, and their understanding of this needed balance has led (and continues to lead) to their success as a group. “The Hunter” is a fine offering that raises the already high bar for Atlanta metal monsters Mastodon. A supreme offering of technicality and melody, this is the defining metal album of 2011 for me thus far.


Mastadon The Hunter “The Hunter,” the latest from Atlanta, Ga., metal group Mastodon, raises the bar and surpasses their previous releases.


Chaang Thai spices up dining on High Street Emily meadows a&e correspondent

If you’re looking for a new spicy, ethnic flavor around Morgantown, look no further than the new Chaang Thai restaurant. Located at 361 High St., the new downtown spot, which opened just last week, offers a vast array of authentic Thai cuisine at an affordable price. The beautifully decorated restaurant, adorned with pleasingly dimmed lighting, is quite large in size. After being greeted by the host at the door, diners have options to sit at the full-size bar, in comfortable booths,at center tables or even catch a window seat to look out onto High Street while enjoying their meal. In addition, the restaurant offers a full-size carry-out menu if there isn’t time for a sit-down meal. No need to feel worrisome if you aren’t familiar with the typical Thai cuisine. The menu breaks down your choices between curry-, noo-

dle- and rice-based dishes, and you’re provided with detailed descriptions and pictures of each. While the food is delicious, those who do not like spicy food will need to read the menu a little more carefully, as Thai cuisine is known for its unique spicy flavor. The menu also breaks down dishes by category of mild, medium and hot, so the distinction between flavors is made clear. However, you can also ask to have any food selection prepared milder or spicier, depending on your taste. For the mild eater, choices include the rice-based Chaang Pineapple Delight, which includes a choice of chicken, pork or beef sauteed with tomatoes, onions, pineapples, cucumber, peppers and tomato sauce. Also the simple and delicious Pattaya Kee Meo, a ricebased entree with a choice of meat on wide rice noodles, sauteed with chili, garlic, basil leaves, bell pepper, onion and tomato, offers For the spicy food lover, it seems the sky is the limit. From the hot menu, you

can order Crazy Spicy Noodles, a dish of wide rice noodles sauteed with chili, garlic, basil leaves, bell peppers, onion and tomatoes. If you really want to kick the heat up a notch, try a dish from the Chaang Thai hot section, guaranteed to satisfy your spice needs. The Honey Beef, flank steak marinated in sesame oil and exotic spices, is panfried and sure to bring ultimate heat to your entree. Chaang salads and soups

Farmers’ Market improves the community Contributing to local businesses builds a stronger community and gives a necessary boost to the economy. Every Morgantown resident should take advantage of the Morgantown Farmers’ Market, which is open every Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. May 7 to Nov. 5, and on select winter weekends. The market has 48 vendors, selling everything from fresh produce to home-baked goods – and much more.

It is conveniently located on Spruce and Fayette streets in downtown Morgantown, making it very accessible to West Virginia University students. Buying produce directly from growers builds a relationship among the community that can’t be found at the supermarket. Seeing the same familiar faces week after week assures quality to consumers. Furthermore, by eliminating the middle-man, market-goers can buy at a fair price.

Popularity of the market is growing, and with it, so is the economy. Last year there were 52,000 shoppers that visited the market, which added a tremendous boost to the local farming community. Small business owners and local farmers are the backbone of America. Prior to the development of corporations such as Wal-Mart and other large shopping outlets, places like the Farmers’ Market were the main outlet for fresh produce

and baked goods. Communities had a strong sense of unity. The Farmers’ Market is a great opportunity for residents to create a stronger community bond, which can benefit the area in a multiple of ways. For one, a unified community is more aware of what’s going on in the neighborhood and will likely increase the safety among its residents. A safe and productive community begins with the involve-

ment of its residents. When shopping at the Farmers’ Market, residents can also feel proud to put a face behind the food they eat. They know that the food being purchased didn’t come from anywhere else but their hometown. For more information on the Morgantown Farmer’s market, visit Invest in our community.

Drone strikes in the Middle East are counterproductive brandon muncy columnist

President Barack Obama has made good on his relatively newly authorized powers to assassinate U.S. citizens. The controversial new powers were fully explored on Friday when al-Qaida operatives and American citizens Anwar Al-Awlaki and Samir Khan were intentionally killed by drone strikes in Yemen. Al-Awlaki was most famous for being an operational planner and successful recruiter and was considered a grave threat due to his knowledge of American culture. Whereas Khan, who is not known to have killed anyone, was only an editor of the Jihadist magazine Inspire. While there is no doubt this is another serious blow to the radical group which was responsible for the 9/11 attacks, American justice and freedom have taken a hit. A trial by jury is one of the most important and long-lasting concepts of a fair justice system. American citizens hold the right to be innocent until proven guilty by these trials. It is an important power check meant to prevent wrongful imprisonment and ensure that people innocent of crimes for which they are alleged to have committed are not wrongfully punished. Yes, Al-Awlaki and Khan would have both been found guilty of their charges. There is no question about the guilt of either of the two who were assassinated. Forgoing the process, however, is not excused by that fact. While, pragmatically, killing them may seem like the thing to do, the slippery slope fallacy must always be feared and acknowledged. First, we kill known al-Qaida operatives in another country until the progression makes its way to killing anyone who questions the policy.


A U.S. Predator unmanned drone armed with a missile stands on the tarmac of Kandahar military airport in Afghanistan. To those who say the previous is nonsensical and unprecedented, then consider the case of how any country progresses into the territories of totalitarianism. Moreover, consider the fact that America has, in its history, passed laws meant to punish citizens who publicly denounced the actions of the federal government. Not even America is entirely safe from those dangerous waters. It’s all rooted in this ideal that the government must do what is necessary to protect the people. A glaring problem with this particular case is that Al-Awlaki was an American citizen. By assassinating an American citizen to protect American

citizens, another step is taken toward losing the freedoms we take for granted. One final idea to consider is this: What are the unintended costs of drone bombing? For years, America has been dropping bombs on the Middle East in mostly futile attempts at killing terrorist agents. I cringe at the thought of the uncountable innocent lives lost by this reckless and abrasive policy. The human cost is significant, but worse still is that this foolhardy bombing policy creates more enemies than it eliminates. There is no better recruitment tactic than playing up the evils of killing innocent people, and Al-Awlaki was one who certainly

did a good job of proving that. Occasionally, America might kill a few al-Qaida grunts in the process of bombing these people. The human cost turns into a tool that al-Qaida successfully employs to bring in new operatives who are more than willing to give their own lives for what they correctly perceive is a great injustice. This is not a “blame America first” opinion. It should go without saying that actions have consequences, especially when that action is killing innocent people or assassinating American citizens. People like former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum show a clear and dangerous disconnect from reality. When he states, “We are

not being attacked, and were not attacked because of our actions,” Santorum bafflingly argues that America can do whatever it wants around the world and everything will be hunky-dory. That’s dangerous thinking and, clearly, there hasn’t been a whole lot of good coming from our campaigns in the Middle East. Even if you buy into the incorrect assertion that we need to spread American goodness with bullets and warfare, ignoring the ideals that make America good to begin with ultimately erases any meaningful strides in spreading our principles. Likewise, having a president who would forgo the most essential practice of a fair legal

system, the trial itself, greatly advances the process of the decline of fairness in the legal system. It is necessary for us to realize that essential freedoms are at stake. The war on terror began to spread into our civil liberties with the passing of the Patriot Act. It is now spreading to our legal system in a way that directly affects American citizens. The adage goes, “War is the health of the state,” and we cannot, even for a second, let that leave our minds. We must begin by re-thinking our foreign policy and kicking officials out of office who would dare even sniff at taking away our essential freedoms. That is how we can end the injustice abroad and at home.

they saw me leaving a gay bar in town. I have never been to a gay bar in this town, not that I haven’t wanted to go from time to time. I have been a member of the faculty for 8 years. I have had students openly call me these terms of hate on more than one occasion. I once had a student write an evaluation stating that “the class would be better if the professor were not a ...,” I have had students openly yell slurs at me from a distance, in passing, even once in class. However, this occasion is different. I have seen the bullying that has taken the lives of Tyler, Jamey, as well as others like Seth Walsh, Asher Brown, and Billy Lucas. This bullying is rampant; the stories that we hear about illustrate an epidemic. As a society, we must stop this intolerance. We must work to end bullying. After the game, I went home and all I could think about was this student’s taunting. I am not a teenager; I am not a student on this campus. I am a member of the faculty, and yet even I was not even off-limits to the bully-

ing, hate speech and intimidation tactics. I have little doubt that this student is not the “exception,” though I am also not convinced that he is “the rule.” I often discuss in all of my courses of the effects of discrimination, prejudice and hate crimes. I think it is time that we as a society understand that, as a people, it is our responsibility to live by the mantra of one of my heroes, Elie Wiesel: “I have sworn to never be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must take sides! Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or sexual orientation, that place must – at that moment – become the center of the universe.” Daniel Brewster is a professor of sociology at West Virginia University

‘Enough is enough’ Daniel Brewster guest column

For well over a year, I have contemplated how I would use my voice to protect those people whose voices are not strong enough to help them defend themselves from the bullying that ultimately could lead to suicide. In the past two weeks, many within the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and its allies recognized the one year anniversary of Rutgers student Tyler Clementi’s suicide and the untimely suicide of young 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer. I have decided enough is enough. Last Saturday as we celebrated the most electric atmosphere of my life within Mountaineer Field, I was forced to face one of my students who found the “liquid courage” to challenge my sexuality. I watched as the young man approached from afar, and as he got closer, I could tell that I


was his target. He arrived at my row and approached me with words of condemnation of my own sexual orientation, using several defamatory terms in an open social setting to attack a member of the faculty. I was not only shocked that he would be so audacious, but I was publicly humiliated as hundreds of people interrupted their cheers to witness this “public shaming.” Unfortunately, I was not surprised that only one of the onlookers would come to my defense. I remember the first time that I was called “gay.” It was a concept that I didn’t really understand, but I could tell that it was something that most people identified as bad. I was in sixth grade, and I remember my teacher and how she favored me from the other students. My assailant was a young man who would proceed to bully me for the next 3 years until he moved away. I remember coming home and checking the encyclopedia to see what was meant by the word gay. I knew from an early age that I was gay; I wished that it didn’t have to be a big secret, but I was petrified

of anybody knowing or finding out. I kept this personal shame and self-hatred inside me since that day. But to be honest, it wasn’t as bad as it could have been – mostly, I just dug my head into my books, studied and tried not to think about it much. And for a long time, that seemed to work. I excelled academically, though I never really engaged in friendships. I worked hard to make money rather than partying on the weekends. I would work and come home alone because I feared that I would be exposed, and I wasn’t sure that I would be accepted by anyone. As college started, I don’t know that I ever really conceptualized the idea of “coming out” as I began to create this false reality of asexuality, this idea that I wasn’t sexual and that I wasn’t attracted to women or men. I felt that this would be easier. It was something that I knew people wouldn’t understand, but I hoped that their confusion would diffuse their assumption of my homosexuality. The question of “coming out”

has been without doubt the ultimate pressing issue on my mind for quite a few years. I felt it was something that would eventually have to be done. Of course, there was always the possibility that I could just never tell anyone and that I keep that part of my life permanently hidden. However, this issue is one that has utterly destroyed me over the years, one that broke my heart on several occasions. I remember my college roommates taunting me because they thought I was gay. I remember so many years where no one would protect me from the slurs, from the bullying, from the evil mistreatment. During my freshman year, Matthew Shepherd was savagely beaten and killed on the campus of the University of Wyoming. I remember thinking, “That could easily be me.” There are so many reasons for finally disclosing my sexual identity. One of my worst fears has always been the rumors. I will never forget this phone call from my own mother. She told me about someone saying that

West Virginia students react to the new design of Facebook Profiles by jake potts a&e editor

Social networking site Facebook is making drastic changes to their profile feature, which are going into effect today. The social network will debut a new timeline, which will allow Facebook applications to be shown on Profiles. In today’s fast-paced world, social networking has become one of the most pop-

ular and convenient forms of communication between people. One of the most popular mediums with which we communicate, Facebook, seems to be evolving and moving faster than we are. Lately, the changes the creators of Facebook’s have been sporadic, to say the least. But, their newest modifications to the site seem to simply reinvent it from top to bottom. Users of Facebook create

and manage their Profile, a personal information page that also shows interactions with other Facebook users on their Wall, which include features such as pictures, videos and links. However, the newest features have taken the layout we all once knew and loved and revamped it completely to a website some are not looking forward to. Freshman biology student Kasey Goff finds the

changes unnecessary and overwhelming. “If they want to change it, they are going to, but it’s just going to make everyone mad,” Goff said. “Every time they change something, it makes people mad.” Facebook has proven to be one of the most popular mediums for social networking. Constant changes have made some users unsure of their commitment and caused them to branch off to other

social networks. Goff has used Facebook to keep in touch with friends from home, but lately finds herself relying more on Twitter. “It’s a lot easier to rely on Twitter,” Goff said. “It’s been the same since I got it.” “I deleted my Facebook after about a year and a half of using it. It just got too hard to keep up with all the changes,” said Sam Pearson, a freshman business student. “Twit-

ter hasn’t changed at all, so it’s nice to have that to rely on.” Freshman bio-chemistry student Tesia Gregg got her Facebook to keep in touch with friends from home and is excited for the new changes. “It looks like the site will be easier to use,” Gregg said. “People will probably complain, but I’m looking forward to what they’ve changed.”

GARRIS-OWNED Freshman’s breakout game leads No. 16 WVU to 55-10 win over Bowling Green DUSTIN GARRISON

by cody schuler sports writer

Led by true freshman running back Dustin Garrison’s 291 yards rushing and two touchdowns, West Virginia amassed 643 total yards offensively, and the Mountaineers coasted to a 55-10 win over Bowling Green. Garrison’s final rushing total was tied for the second most in school history and the best ever by a freshman – breaking Pat White’s record of 220 yards, which he set in 2005 against Pittsburgh. Junior quarterback Geno Smith did his part in the offense explosion, completing 18 of 30 passes for 238 yards and three touchdowns. Seniors Ryan Nehlen and Bradley Starks and sophomore Ivan McCartney each caught touchdowns for the Mountaineers. Junior running back Shawne Alston ran for 50 yards and his first two career scores. It was the most prolific performance of a West Virginia offense since 2001 when the Mountaineers gained 627 yards against Rutgers in an 80-7 victory. Backing up the strong offensive play was a stingy defense that held Bowling









Green to 217 total yards, 252 yards fewer than its season average. Head coach Dana Holgorsen had plenty of positive things to take away from his team’s win on Homecoming weekend. “We earned this one,” he said. “Bouncing back from last week’s disappointing loss, we were able to commit and get the win. One thing that makes me happy is we played very smart. We got a week better and (we’re) getting ready to move on to Big East play after tomorrow.” Holgorsen was very pleased with the emergence of Garrison, who seemed to solidify his future at running back. “The more you give it to (Garrison) and

No. 23 Mountaineers end road losing streak vs. Cincinnati by alex sims sports writer

The road struggles finally ended for the No. 23 West Virginia men’s soccer team. The Mountaineers (5-41) shut out Cincinnati (3-61) 1-0 Saturday, ending their streak of 13 road games without a win. “It was probably about as well as we played all season,” said WVU head coach Marlon LeBlanc. After the victory, WVU improved to 1-1 in Big East Conference this season, while Cincinnati fell to 0-2. The game-winning goal came in the 27th minute when sophomore midfielder Allan Flott found leading scorer Andy Bevin to give the Mountaineers the early lead. The assist was the first of Flott’s career as a Mountaineer. Bevin’s lone shot of the game found the net past Bearcats goalkeeper Joey Barnard, who had three saves on the game. Flott and senior Nick Claudio both made their first starts since the Mountaineers’ Sept. 2nd matchup with Binghamton. The shutout was West Virginia’s third of the season

Midfielders led the way offensively for WVU. Junior Uwem Etuk recorded three shots, Flott and Shadow Sebele each had two, and senior Ruben Garrido added one.

“We were brilliant in the midfield, and we were brilliant up front,” LeBlanc said. “Our possession and our ability to unbalance them was as good as it has been all season.” Claudio led the front line

Consistent run game could make WVU deadly michael carvelli sports editor

There haven’t been many times when the West Virginia football team went into a season without a sure answer of who its starting running back would be. For years, the Mountaineers always knew they would have somebody like Steve Slaton or Noel Devine in the backfield every year. But that wasn’t the case heading into Saturday’s game against Bowling Green. West Virginia had four backs who were playing well, but none of them were separating from the rest of the pack. As a whole, the running game was averaging just 2.7 yards per carry through the first four games, and there wasn’t a lot of consistency from any of the four who were rotating in and out of the game. When freshman Dustin Garrison led the way against LSU and ran for 46 yards on 10 carries, it looked like there was a chance he could be “the one” the coaching staff had been looking for to step up and assume that role as the main ball carrier. And then Sat u rd ay happened. Any questions about who could handle taking over seemed to be answered following Garrison’s perfor-

mance, which will be remembered for a long time. The combination of Garrison and junior running back Shawne Alston could be just what this team needs to move forward this year. They complement each other extremely well. Garrison does most of the work, making the most of his patience, field vision and spectacular ability to make cuts, causing defenders to miss him and help get West Virginia down the field, and then Alston does the dirty work in the red zone. It’s a classic “thunder and lightning” scenario that has been seen so much in football. “Whenever we run the ball and we’re getting hit, we’re just bouncing right back up and we’re ready to make another play,” Garrison said. “Whenever he’s tired, I’m there for him and it all works out.” Now that the Mountaineers actually have somebody they can trust to handle the majority of the carries, things could begin looking even more dynamic for an offense that has already been pretty good all season. Even after games like LSU, which the Mountaineers put on a great performance offensively, head coach Dana Holgorsen described the unit as “a work in progress.” Truthfully, I didn’t buy it – mostly because I didn’t know how much better they could get. Geno Smith and the receiv-

ers have been doing a great job of moving the ball through the air, and the running game had been doing well enough to at least keep WVU in close games and provide a decent complement to what the passing attack can do. But now it can be even better. Teams are going to be forced to play the Mountaineers honest, ready to stop either the run or the pass. Even senior linebacker Najee Goode said after the game that, if he was a defensive coordinator, he wouldn’t know how he would go about making a game plan to stop – or even just slow down – this WVU offense. And the fact is, I don’t know how you’d do it either. Of course, you have to be ready to stop the pass, because that’s what this team is best at. At the same time, defenses are going to need to put some more people in the box to stop the run now that WVU has shown it can have a solid running game. That’s what’s so interesting about this team. Against LSU, it looked like this was going to be an offense that relied almost solely on the passing game. Against Bowling Green it looked like a group that can be incredibly balanced. When a team doesn’t know what to key on, it’s difficult to slow down. That’s why this WVU offense is as good as it is. Saturday’s game showed

with two shots, bringing WVU’s total to 11, while UC recorded seven shots. Only three players, Ruben Garrido, Peabo Doue and Franck Tayou, came off of the bench for the deep West Virginia squad. Cincinnati had the advantage with two corner kicks, to West Virginia’s one, taken by Sebele early in the second half. Despite the underwhelming statistics, the Mountaineers’ ball control throughout the match proved to be a major deciding factor. “We did a really good job managing the game,” LeBlanc said. “Possession-wise, we were certainly the dominant side.”

what it can be like when the Mountaineers are clicking on everything offensively. Will they throw for almost 500 yards every game? Probably not.

Senior Brad Starks catches his second touchdown pass of the season.

Cincinnati’s two offensive leaders, Shamar Shelton and Cole DeNormandie both ended the game without taking a single shot. The strong performance was much needed from the Mountaineers who were coming off of consecutive losses to USF and James Madison. “We went through a tough spell there, but I don’t think it’s time to sleep on us yet,” LeBlanc said. “We got a big result here, and now we have another big one coming up with Georgetown, so we’ll continue to push forward.” West Virginia returns home to Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium for its next match on Saturday, where it will take on No. 13 Georgetown at 7:30 p.m.

Will Garrison ever run for 291 yards again? Probably not. But if it can keep that balance up throughout the rest of the year, Big East defenses will probably not be able to stop the Mountaineers.

Geno Smith threw for three touchdowns Saturday.


Continued from page 7 the more he plays, the better he gets,” he said. “If you look at the 16 games on his high school film last year, it’s like (today). He’s used to 200-yard games.” Garrison gave credit to the team as a whole when describing his play Saturday. “Everybody was doing their job. Linemen were finishing blocks, receivers downfield (were) finishing blocks, and that’s what happens when everybody works together,” he said. Senior cornerback Keith Tandy finished the game with two interceptions, his first of the year after leading the Big East a year ago. “It should’ve been three,” Holgorsen said of Tandy’s interception total. “It was a matter of time with him. He’s done that a lot.” The Mountaineers were able to force four total turnovers in the game, the most they’ve forced all season. For Bowling Green, freshman running back Jamel Martin rushed for 111 yards – the second time this season the West Virginia defense has allowed a 100-yard rusher. It didn’t take long to judge whether the West Virginia kickoff team had improved its coverage over the past week of practice. Bowling Green sophomore defensive back Jerry Gates fielded junior Corey Smith’s opening kickoff at the 5-yard line and broke upfield past the initial round of coverage about 35 yards before redshirt senior safety Eain Smith, making his season debut on the kickoff team, forced a fumble that was recovered by sophomore safety

Senior cornerback Keith Tandy breaks up a pass in the end zone. Tandy had his first two interceptions of the season in West Virginia’s 55-10 win over Bowling Green. Travis Bell. “It was fun to see on the first play after we’d been talking all week about not being able to get turnovers,” Holgorsen said. West Virginia was unable to capitalize fully on the Bowling Green turnover though, settling for a 30-yard field goal conversion by junior kicker Tyler Bitancurt. On the ensuing kickoff, Gates redeemed himself, taking the kick back 77 yards and into the red zone. Sophomore quarterback for Bowling Green, Matt Schilz, wasted no time once the Falcons’ offense took the field, connecting with senior wide receiver Ray Hutson on the first

play from scrimmage for an 18yard score. Schilz would finish the day with 114 passing yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. Bowling Green looked poised to score its second touchdown of the game until Tandy made a physical play, breaking up a once wide-open Falcon receiver waiting in the end zone. The Falcons were forced to settle for a field goal and took a 7-point lead with 7:47 remaining in the first quarter. Unnerved by the early push from Bowling Green, Smith led the Mountaineers on a five-play, 70-yard drive that ended with a 33-yard touchdown catch by

McCartney, tying the game at 10. Smith and the West Virginia offense found success with the running game on the next drive, as Garrison rushed for 22 yards, including a crucial 4-yard gain inside the 10-yard line on fourth down that set up an 8-yard touchdown rush by junior running back Shawne Alston. With a 38-10 lead at the half, West Virginia was well on its way to a historic afternoon. The Mountaineer offense had already gained 419 total yards – more yardage than in nine games last season. On the opening drive of the second half, it took West Virginia only six plays to gain 63 yards and a touchdown. The drive lasted less than two minutes and was capped off by an 8-yard run by Garrison, his second score of the game. The scoring play was set up by a spectacular 41-yard reception on third and long by sophomore Stedman Bailey, who made the catch despite being double covered. Bowling Green did have an opportunity to score in the early part of the fourth quarter, but on two consecutive snaps, Irvin and senior defensive lineman Julian Miller made plays that stopped the scoring chance – including a forced fumble by Miller that was finished off by an Irvin tackle for loss. With 10:17 remaining in the fourth quarter, freshman Paul Millard entered the game and completed a 45-yard pass to Bailey on his first play from scrimmage. Alston would later score on the drive, carrying for an 8-yard score with 7:52 remaining in the fourth quarter, making the score 55-10 in favor of the Mountaineers. West Virginia was very effective in the red zone, scoring on all seven trips it took inside the opponent’s 20-yard line. In his first collegiate start in place of sophomore Doug Rigg, redshirt freshman Jewone Snow led WVU with nine tackles. Bailey led all Mountaineer receivers with four catches for 112 yards.

First time for everything

brooke cassidy/the daily athenaeum

Redshirt junior receiver Ryan Nehlen catches his first career touchdown pass in the second quarter Saturday against Bowling Green. It was also Nehlen’s second reception of his career.

WR Nehlen caught his first career TD pass as a Mountaineer against Bowling Green by ben gaughan

associate sports editor

No. 16 West Virginia’s Homecoming game against Bowling Green couldn’t have been more special for the Nehlen family name. On a weekend when several former West Virginia quarterbacks such as Major Harris, Pat White and Marc Bulger came back to Morgantown to support the Don Nehlen Quarterback Scholarship, redshirt junior receiver Ryan Nehlen, grandson of former WVU head coach Don Nehlen, caught his first career touchdown pass. “I think it was a perfect day,” Ryan Nehlen said. “Coming in I had a good week of practice, and I thought today might be brooke cassidy/the daily athenaeum the day. So, I was happy.” WVU was lined up on BowlNehlen, right, celebrates with teammates after catching his first touchdown pass in a Mountaineer uniform Saturday. ing Green’s 15-yard line, the

women’s soccer

ball was snapped and Nehlen beat the defender and cut in toward the goalpost to make the leaping grab in the end zone. The catch was also Ryan’s second of his career. “I played the Z position; it was a Z post,” Ryan said. “I think (quarterback) Geno (Smith) faked it and ended up getting it to me a little high, and I went and got it. “I stuck the defender like I was going outside, went right inside of him and caught the ball,” he said. Smith even admitted the ball was extremely wet on the pass, and he did not make the best throw, but Ryan made a nice play on it and made the catch. Unfortunately, not everyone in the Nehlen family saw the play. Ryan’s father, Dan Nehlen, WVU’s equipment

manager, went into the locker room at that very moment. “I went to the sideline and everybody was like ‘He’s inside setting up for halftime,’ which he sets up pretty early I guess,” Ryan said. “I was trying to (get another touchdown), but I guess he missed out.” Ryan had a second opportunity to reach the end zone early in the third quarter. WVU was at midfield and the offense ran a similar play to the one on Ryan’s first touchdown catch. He ran toward the middle of the end zone and was open for the catch, but Smith threw the ball a little high, and Ryan couldn’t reach to grab it for what would have been his second career touchdown. “It was a little overthrown, but I was still open,” Ryan said.

Smith and Nehlen have built a good chemistry together over recent months, as the two were injured and did rehab together at one point during the spring. Ryan knows he just has to keep working every day in practice and make the most of his chances out on the field. “I’m backing up Ivan (McCartney) right now, he’s playing great,” Nehlen said. “Whenever he needs a blow, I’ll go out there and perform well, stay on the field. To make the day even more special, the wide receiver played a part in defeating his grandfather’s alma mater – Bowling Green. “It hasn’t quite hit me yet,” Ryan said. “Maybe in the morning.”

Mountaineers fall to Nova, WVU finishes eighth in Greater Louisville Classic Saturday 4-1 in rain delayed game by ethan rohrbaugh sports writer

By nick arthur sports writer

No. 21 West Virginia women’s soccer team went 1-1 this weekend in Big East Conference play. The Mountaineers defeated Georgetown 3-1 Friday, but were upset by Villanova 4-1 Sunday afternoon. Friday’s victory over the Hoyas improved West Virginia to 5-0 in conference play and extended the Mountaineers’ match win streak to seven games. Freshman Kate Schwindel scored less than one minute into the match. “We got on Georgetown early, we scored two goals in the first half,” West Virginia head coach Nikki Izzo-Brown said. “I thought we had a really solid 45 minutes in the first half.” The Mountaineers would add two more from sophomore Emily Dillon and senior Blake Miller. Sunday’s game against Villanova was originally scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff. Poor field conditions forced the start time back to 3 p.m., however, the field conditions weren’t improved despite the two hour delay. “Worst field I’ve ever played on,” Izzo-Brown said. “It was an absolute nightmare.” West Virginia was able to strike first in the seventh minute on a goal by senior defender Erica Henderson. But, West Virginia senior defender Meghan Lewis was given a red card and forced the Mountaineers to play with 10 players for the rest of the match.

brooke cassidy/the daily athenaeum

Senior defender Erica Henderson jumps up for a header against Rutgers last week. Henderson scored the only goal for the Mountaineers in the team’s 4-1 loss to Villanova Sunday. The red card was the first ever issued to a player in program history. The Wildcats responded with four unanswered goals on their way to a 4-1 home victory. The loss for the Mountaineers ended their seven game match win streak, and handed the team its first loss in conference play. “The field conditions were horrific, and the red card 20 minutes in didn’t help,” IzzoBrown said. “It was definitely an uphill battle at ‘Nova. It was a very frustrating game, but we have to bounce back and get ready for St. Johns. “ The muddy field and red card put the visitors in a precarious situation. Even though

West Virginia was unable to win the game, coach IzzoBrown was pleased with her team’s effort. “I give the team a lot of credit, they battled,” she said. “Second game in three days, so, physically it was pretty tough.” The Mountaineers will return to action Friday at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium against St. Johns. Coach Izzo-Brown isn’t satisfied and feels improvements can be made in all facets. “We have a lot of players that can definitely step it up, and that’s what we’re going to look for,” she said.

A lineup deemed as a “look into the future” by head coach Sean Cleary ran to an eighth place finish out of 30 schools at the Greater Louisville Classic Saturday in Louisville, Ky. “We had a very good day in Louisville,” Cleary said. “As a group, we are really starting to believe how good we can be.” The Mountaineers were led by redshirt junior Stephanie Aldea, who placed 15th in a field of 262 runners with a 5-kilometer time of 17:26. “Aldea had a very big day, proving that last weekend at Toledo was nothing more than a rust buster,” Cleary said. The transfer student placed 32nd at last weekend’s meet in Toledo, Ohio, where she was making her WVU debut after redshirting last season. “Her performance (in Louisville) was a much better reflection of her shape,” Cleary said. Redshirt senior and Morgantown native Ahna Lewis made her first appearance of the season and claimed 19th place with a time of 17:34. “It was also very good to see Ahna Lewis back in the fold,” Cleary said. “Ahna is getting better by the day. I feel very optimistic that Ahna will be as fast as she has ever been within a month.” The remaining group of Mountaineers who ran Saturday finished “right at or improved their fastest times ever,” according to Cleary. Sarah Martinelli (67th -18:13), Aubrey Moskal (73th -18:16), Jordan Hamric (79th - 18:19), Allison Pettit (91st 18:24), Hallie Portner (110th

Senior Ahna Lewis made her first appearance of the season and finished in 19th place Saturday at the Greater Louisville Classic. - 18:33), Stephanie Caruso (151st - 18:24) and Chelsea Jarvis (200th - 19:10) combined for what Cleary called a “career day” for the group. Cleary knows the team is not finished with its most difficult training phase of the season but is happy with how the Mountaineers are performing lately. Michigan took first place at the Classic with a score of 81. Ferris State (190) and Ole Miss (202) went for second and third, respectively. Host school and fellow Big East member Louisville finished 21st, and USF was the only other Big East school to crack the top 10. West Virginia’s starting lineup did not run in the meet Saturday, but they did get to preview the course that will host the Big East championships at the end of the month. With two of the next three weeks off before the Mountaineers return to Louisville, Cleary

says his team will continue to train hard and won’t be “dropping the volume of work” in training sessions until after the conference championships. The other four schools to represent the Big East in the national rankings were pitted against each other over the weekend at the Paul Short Invitational in Bethlehem, Pa. No. 1 Georgetown finished fourth at the meet behind No. 3 Providence, No. 5 Villanova and No. 12 Syracuse, in that order. “To say our league is strong is an understatement,” said Cleary of the conference, which is tied with the Big Ten with five teams in nation’s top 30. “It is important for our group not to worry about things that we cannot control,” continued the coach. “We have the ability to be very good and know what we have to do to reach our potential.”
