Audiology dept. to host 5k run by megan calderado staff writer

This spring, the WVU Student Academy of Audiology will be hosting its third annual MountainEAR 5k at Hazel Ruby-McQuain Park in Morgantown. The race takes place March 16, and this year there will be an option of a one-mile run for children younger than 13. “The MountainEAR 5k is

a unique event, because it is the only fundraiser that focuses on communication disorders,” said third-year audiology graduate student and race director Crystal Vimpeny. Approximately 26 million Americans between the ages of 20 and 69 suffer hearing loss from overexposure to loud noises. More than 36 million American adults report some degree of hearing loss, according to the Na-

tional Institute of Health. This event raised more than $3,500 last year, which went to WVU Speech and Hearing Clinic patients who have financial limitations. “It is our hope that the MountainEAR 5k raises awareness on how prominent hearing loss is and what can be done to protect your hearing,” Vimpeny said. While reflecting on some of the people who have par-

ticipated throughout the past couple years, Vimpeny shared some of their personal stories. One gentleman ran in honor of his mother, who was diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma, which is a slow growing tumor on the auditory nerve. Another participant from last year was completely deaf in one ear. “You hear of these testimonies, and it reminds us why

we host the MountainEAR 5k,” Vimpeny said. The race not only raises awareness about the importance of hearing awareness, it also informs people about the services the WVU Hearing Clinic has to offer. The clinic is located in Allen Hall on the Evansdale campus, and students can receive speech and hearing screenings free of charge. The MountainEAR 5k will

There are student organizations at West Virginia University representing virtually all world religions. There is also an organization serving students who choose no religion. Freethinking, Inquiring Secular Humanists (or FISH) is a student organization that promotes rationality, goodwill and tolerance – all with a clear division from religious standards. President Cecil O’Dell said secular humanism is about being socially progressive without adhering to religious requirements. “It’s an ideology that says the best way to promote the general advancement and to fight for equality for all demographics and ways of life is to promote a society that is religiously tolerant,” he said. “It refers to the idea of being free from religion, either philosophically, socially or politically,” O’Dell said. “It’s about the general movement toward the betterment of society

SGA finalizes polling locations for election By Summer Ratcliff Staff Writer

The West Virginia University Student Government Association finalized polling locations for the upcoming election during its meeting Wednesday. Last week, governors decided the two permanent polling locations would be located in the Mountainlair and the Student Recreation Center. To better serve the student body, the third polling station will rotate among three different locations. The board decided upon three locations: Brooks Hall, the Engineering campus and the Health Sciences Center. In addition to decid-

ing upon polling locations, the board also voted unanimously to appoint Cecil O’Dell as the new Director of Student Organizations. O’Dell will take the place of Farah Famouri who is currently studying abroad at the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom and will no longer be able to fulfill her duties. O’Dell, a sophomore physics student, said his involvement in more than 20 student organizations provides him a unique perspective on what the student organizations on campus need most. “I think the position will complement what I am already participating in,” O’Dell said. “As a member of 20 organizations on campus, I believe

there will be more opportunities for outreach and connections between SGA and the student (organizations).” O’Dell said he is eager to begin achieving his goals to bridge the gap between the various student organizations on campus. “There is a lot of work to be done,” he said. “Along with many other goals, I would love to see the Student Organization Presidents Advisory Council reformatted and see new life be brought into that council.” Additionally, Kristen Pennington, co-chair of Student Advocates for Legislative Advancement, spoke at Wednesday’s meeting to announce the group’s upcoming Know Your Rights campaign.

“Know Your Rights Campaign is to inform students of their rights within the state so that they may not be infringed upon,” Pennington said. “We will be handing out cards informing students of their rights as tenants, car owners, etc.” Members of SALA and SGA will be located in the Mountainlair Tuesday-Thursday from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. to distribute the Know Your Rights cards. Student Government Association will hold its meeting in the Towers Ballroom at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. The meeting location has changed as part of their mobile meetings initiative.

and people, and you have that in the context of being secular.” As an organization, FISH seeks to exemplify these ideals, performing community service and promoting a secular community. Members come from all walks of life and include atheists, agnostics, unaffilliated – and even religious students. “We get a lot of people who like to think about themselves as rational or free thinkers,” O’Dell said. “We had a few religious people come to our meetings in the past who were for the political separation of church and state or really liked what we’re doing. Part of our goal is to provide a community for those people to interact without discrimination.” As O’Dell explained, some people view atheists negatively. Researchers at the University of British Columbia and the University of Oregon have conducted numerous studies that show a level of distrust

WVU pitched move to electronic student IDs by madison fleck staff writer

Students who don’t like the feel or durability of plastic student ID cards may want to take a bigger interest in the work of CBORD, the company responsible for West Virginia University’s MyID program and computer system. Yesterday, CBORD pitched an idea to WVU’s Office of Information and Technology that would make student identification hands-free. Mobile ID is an app students would be able to download and use wirelessly to access many features students use their physical ID card for. For example, if students forget their key, they will be able to unlock their dorm doors using the app with a simple access code. The app would be able to aid professors in taking attendance in class. Students could simply type in an access code to the app, and

it would allow the professor to know who is present. “You can optionally add location awareness to the app,” said Robert Lemley, CBORD’s group director. “This will give you many additional features.” Lemley demonstrated how Mobile ID uses location services for a program within the app called Pathlight. “If a young lady is walking home from the library and would like somebody to keep an eye on her, the Pathlight application can do that,” Lemley said. Pathlight uses a page within the app called “follow me,” and location services to tell where a student is. When the follow me page is in use, students have the option to slide a bar on the screen if they need help, and this automatically notifies the campus police. Furthermore, if the student is not moving for

Debt crisis averted, spring fiscal fight still ahead


House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio leaves a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington Wednesday. WASHINGTON (AP) — Retreating with a purpose, Republicans sped legislation through the House on Wednesday to avert the imminent threat of a government default but pointing the way to a springtime budget struggle with President Barack Obama over Medicare, farm subsidies and other benefit programs. The current legislation, which cleared the House on a bipartisan vote of 285-144, would permit Treasury borrowing to exceed the limit of $16.4 trillion through May 18. As it passed, Speaker John Boehner pledged that Republicans would quickly draft a budget that would wipe out deficits in a decade, and he challenged Democrats to do the same. The Democratic-controlled Senate is expected to approve the debt bill as early as Friday or perhaps next week. The White House welcomed the legislation rather than face the threat of a first-ever default at the dawn of the president’s second term in the White House, and spokesman Jay Carney pointedly noted a “fundamental change” in


Continued from page 1 a long time, the authorities would be notified and would attempt to contact the student to make sure everything is all right. “I think this is an amazing security feature,” said Tami Stalnaker, an employee in the WVU Office of Information Technology. “It’s amazing. It’s way better than the blue lights on campus.” The app can also be used for more casual things, such as notifying students when their laundry is done and giving students a variety of other relevant information. “You can text the word ‘balance,’ and it will tell you how much money you have on your Mountaineer Card,”

strategy by the GOP. House Republicans cast the bill as a way to force the Senate to draft a budget for the first time in four years, noting that if either house fails to do so, its members’ pay would be withheld. They called the bill “no budget, no pay,’” a slogan if not a statement of fact, since lawmakers would be entitled to collect their entire salaries at the end of the Congress with or without a budget in place. With polls showing their public support eroding, the Republicans jettisoned, for now at least, an earlier insistence that they would allow no additional borrowing unless Obama and the Democrats agreed to dollarfor-dollar federal spending cuts in exchange. The average American family “can’t buy everything they want every day; they have to make tough choices. It’s time to make Congress make the same choices,” said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., underscoring the new Republican rallying cry. Rep. Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin lawmaker who will

Lemley said. “If you text the word ‘meals,’ it will tell you how many meals you have left. If you text the words ‘lost card,’ we turn your card off.” The capabilities of the Mobile ID seem to be endless, and the University is looking into buying the program, but it will not come without charges to students. Lemley discussed the possibility of students having to pay for each text sent out. The reason for this is that the Mobile ID will not make WVU’s MyID extinct, but if a student loses or forgets their card, it will be easier to get access to all of the offerings on campus.

be responsible for drafting the budget for Republicans, said Congress has “a moral obligation” to prevent a debt crisis that he said will hit hardest at seniors and others who depend on government the most. As chairman of the House Budget Committee, Ryan will take the lead role in crafting a blueprint expected to rely heavily on savings from benefit programs. The budget he wrote last year before being picked as the party’s vice presidential candidate was to take two decades to achieve balance. Ryan’s 10-year-budget task will be eased in part by higher tax revenues resulting from the Jan. 1 expiration of a two-year payroll tax cut, and in part from an anticipated $600 billion generated by raising rates on upper incomes. But given the sheer size of annual deficits in the $1 trillion range, it will be impossible to meet his goal without taking large savings from benefit programs such as Medicare and Medicaid, farm and student loan subsidies, the federal retirement program and


Continued from page 1 against those who don’t believe in a higher power – a distrust O’Dell said is unfounded. “The word atheist has an overwhelming amount of negativity around it,” he said. “A lot of people are confused about what it means to be an atheist.” O’Dell said that was one reason the group chose to be defined as secular. “We’re a very diverse group. I think it’s really bad to limit ourselves to the term ‘atheism,’” he said. “It’s not comprehensive for the movement.” FISH vice president Caleb Davis said the organization wants to overcome those stereotypes.

more. House Democrats made no attempt to defend the Senate’s failure to draft a budget over the past three years, instead saying a mere four-month extension in the debt limit would not give business and the financial markets the certainty that is necessary for the economy to grow more quickly. Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, his party’s senior Budget Committee member, said the good news was, “Republicans have finally recognized the government must pay its bills. ... The bad news is they only want to do it for three months.” Beyond the rhetoric lay a political calculation on the part of Boehner and other House Republicans that they could not afford to set up an immediate confrontation with Obama. At a closed-door retreat last week, the rank and file was presented with polling that showed their support eroding since the election into the mid-to-high 20s, and indicating that increasingly the public believes they oppose Obama out of political motives rather than on pol-

icy grounds. The same surveys show significant support for spending cuts, although backing wanes when it comes to reductions in individual programs that are popular. Several officials said the leadership and Ryan had solidified rank-and-file Republicans behind a shift in strategy by emphasizing a commitment to a budget that would eliminate deficits in a decade, and the sentiment was expressed Wednesday on the House floor. “This is why I ran for office. This is why I came to Washington, D.C.,” said Rep. Tom Reed of New York, first elected in 2010 as part of a tea party-flavored wave that gave Republicans their majority. Another Republican, Rep. Michael Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, answered Democratic taunts: “This is not a gimmick,” he said. Already, both sides were laying down markers for the struggle ahead. Across the Capitol, Senate Democrats had already announced their intention

to approve a budget, although they have made it clear they will insist on additional tax revenue that Republicans are sure to resist. In his Inaugural address on Monday, Obama mentioned the deficit only once, and in passing. When it came to programs likely to bear the closest scrutiny from Republican budget cutters, he said, “We must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit.” But he also said, “The commitments we make to each other – through Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security – these things do not sap our initiative, they strength us. They do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great.” The congressional calendar requires the House and Senate to approve versions of a budget by early spring. Assuming that happens, the two are then reconciled, and the resulting compromise sets the framework for spending and tax legislation for the fiscal year that begins on Oct. 1.

“I think we really want to push for removing a lot of that stigmatization,” he said. “A lot of what we’re doing is setting the example by doing something good – by being an outstanding citizen.” He described how many religiously unaffiliated people have been confronted by believers. “I think we’ve all been there, where they don’t understand what the word means,” Davis said. “It’s difficult to understand objective morality ethics sometimes.” To fulfill its humanitarian mission, FISH has worked with groups such as Habitat for Humanity, Americorps, the American Cancer Society and the Ronald McDonald House. “We’re tackling two things at once,” O’Dell said.

“One: we’re fulfilling the humanitarian part of what we believe in. Number two: that’s a pretty good way to fight the social stigma of our movement and what a lot people perceive us to be.” Apart from charity work, the group regularly hosts philosophical discussions about a variety of subjects. “There have been discussions about objective morality, where you get morals from, how to deal with family members that are intolerant of your position, scientific reasons for evolution, why some of us believe God doesn’t exist,” O’Dell said. Membership is free and noncommittal. “There’s no harm in trying,” Davis said. “If you’re looking to make friends or join discussions, you have

nothing to lose.” Tolerance is one of the organization’s founding principles. “It’s a welcoming community,” O’Dell said. “If you’re trying to escape some kind of pressure from your friends or family about your ideals, this is the place to come. We don’t turn anyone away.” FISH’s first meeting of the semester is being held today at 6:30 in the Kanawha room of the Mountainlair. All are welcome. “Whether they’re just curious about the beliefs of our members or what our group is about, we always keep our door open,” O’Dell said.

Defiant Clinton takes on lawmakers on Libya attack WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton delivered fiery rejoinders Wednesday to Republican critics of the Obama administration’s handling of the deadly attack on a U.S. mission in Benghazi, facing off with lawmakers who included potential 2016 presidential rivals. At times emotional and frequently combative, Clinton rejected GOP suggestions in two congressional hearings that the administration tried to mislead the country about the Sept. 11 attack that killed Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, and three other Americans. She insisted the State Department is moving swiftly and aggressively to strengthen security at diplomatic posts worldwide. In her last formal testimony before Congress as

America’s top diplomat — but perhaps not her last time on the political stage — Clinton once again took responsibility for the department’s missteps and failures leading up to the assault. But she also said that requests for more security at the diplomatic mission in Benghazi didn’t reach her desk, and reminded lawmakers that they have a responsibility to fund securityrelated budget requests. Three weeks after her release from a New York hospital — admitted for complications after a concussion — Clinton was at times defiant, complimentary and willing to chastise lawmakers during more than 5 ½ hours of testimony before two separate committees. She tangled with some who could be rivals in 2016 if she decides to seek the presidency again. Her voice cracking at one

point, Clinton said the attack and the aftermath were highly personal tragedies for the families of the victims who died – Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty – as well as herself. “I stood next to President Obama as the Marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at Andrews. I put my arms around the mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters and the wives left alone to raise their children,” she told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee at a packed hearing. Clearly annoyed with Republican complaints about the initial explanation for the attack, she rose to the defense of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, who was vilified for widely debunked claims five days after the attack that

protests precipitated the raid rather than terrorism. Clinton said, “People were trying in real time to get to the best information.” And she said her own focus was on looking ahead on how to improve security rather than revisiting the talking points and Rice’s comments. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., pressed her on why “we were misled that there were supposedly protests and something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that.” “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans,” she said, her voice rising and quivering with anger as she and Johnson spoke over each other. is to represent the world’s indispensable nation. And I am confident that, with your help, we will continue to keep the United States safe, strong, and exceptional.”

Daily Athenaeum television special edition: A man’s guide to sophisticated and refined evening programming

Secret agent Sterling Archer provides laughs and quality entertainment in FX’s ‘Archer.’

UFC stars Jon Jones (left) and Chael Sonnen (right) serve as coaches on the 17th season of ‘The Ultimate fighter.’

hunter homistek a&e editor

Oh, the manly, manly programming this wonderful January has bestowed upon us. From returning favorites like “Archer” and “The Ultimate Fighter” on FX to the hot new kid on the block, “Bellator MMA Live” on Spike TV, times have never been better for a man with a remote control and a basic cable package – or a premium package, big guy. Whether you want to laugh at some witty humor courtesy of International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS) secret agent Sterling Archer or watch two grown men beat each other senseless inside a steel cage, Spike TV and FX can accommodate. Sit back, kick out the recliner, crack a cold one, and check out what you’re missing.

‘Archer’ “Archer” delivered its strongest ratings ever in the wake of its Season 4 premiere Jan. 17, so chances are, you’re already watching this hilarious show. If you’re not though, let me ask you something: how do you sleep at night? Seriously. Does that pillow provide comfort for your block head? For those unfamiliar with the show, “Archer” follows ISIS secret agent Sterling Archer and his crew of flawed and quirky co-workers through various – oftentimes ridiculous – missions. Archer plays the ubermanly lead character of the show, and his persona (voiced by the golden pipes of H. Jon Benjamin) is exactly what you always wanted in a badass secret agent. Basically, he’s James Bond…except he’s funny and watchable. With “Archer” you’re guar-

anteed to get a solid storyline injected with a heavy dose of inappropriate and whimsical humor and that, my friends, is a beautiful thing. If you are not already doing so, watch “Archer” Thursday evenings at 10 p.m. on FX, and thank me later. ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ Season 17 of “The Ultimate Fighter” debuted Tuesday night on FX, and the season premiere was the show’s finest in recent years. If you’re not already watching “The Ultimate Fighter,” let me ask you something: okay, okay, we won’t go down that road again. This show follows 14 professional mixed martial artists on a quest to become the next ultimate fighter, which means the winner of the competition will sign a six-figure contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and lead the life of a rock star – big house, five cars, in charge – all of that. What is this “competition,”

Muhammed ‘King Mo’ Lawal leads a star-studded roster on ‘Bellator MMA Live.’ you ask? There are two teams on the show, each coached by a current superstar in the UFC. Season 17 is of particular interest on this front, as it features light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and trash-talking extraordinaire Chael Sonnen as opposing coaches. Needless to say, things are going to get heated and extremely fun between those two as the season progresses. At the end of each episode of “The Ultimate Fighter,” two UFC hopefuls square off inside the promotion’s legendary Octagon (the company’s term for its cage), and the winner moves on to the next round of the contest. In addition to the fights themselves, “The Ultimate Fighter” features an abundance of quality reality television. When you put 14 testosterone-filled dudes in one house for six weeks with no outside contact, tempers understandably flare, and the re-

‘The Carrie Diaries’ makes season debut on the CW Laura Ciarolla A&E Writer

“The Carrie Diaries,” the CW network’s prequel series to HBO’s “Sex and the City,” premiered Jan. 14. The television show is based off a book series of the same name by Candace Bushnell. Bushnell remains involved in the show as executive producer along with “Sex and the City” producer Amy B. Harris. AnnaSophia Robb plays the lead character, Carrie Bradshaw. She is perhaps best known for her roles in a number of children’s films, including “Bridge to Terabithia,” “Race to Witch Mountain,” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” After watching the first two episodes, I think the show is establishing a firm spot in the network. The pilot was ques-

tionable, although it piqued my interest enough to keep watching. It was the second episode of the series, “Lie with Me,” that kept my interest. The pilot episode was a little too sappy for me, though I understand the need to establish a back story. Most of the episode centers on Carrie’s struggles in dealing with the very recent loss of her mother, as well as new her role in little sister Dorrit’s life. Carrie and her three best friends begin talking about their virginity or recent loss thereof. The episode’s focus on this storyline reminded me a lot of the adult series, and I was eager to see how a younger Carrie dealt with something she treats so lightly later in life. In true “Sex and the City” fashion, the show seems to be gaining focus toward its secondary characters, Carrie’s friends. While Carrie’s character can be a little too sweet and innocent at times, her friends’

story lines add some excitement to the mix. However, AnnaSophia Robb is by far the best part of this show. She may not look much like a young Sarah Jessica Parker, but Robb emulates suburbia for a 16-yearold girl. In fact, Robb pointed out in an interview with Huffington Post that the show is not meant to be an recreation of the HBO series. “It’s a different show,” Robb said. “I don’t want to emulate (Parker’s) performance in any way. She did such a good job with a role. And this is the younger Carrie – it’s who she is before she’s turned into a confident woman.” Where the show really picks up for me is when Carrie enters New York City. Her father lands her an internship with a law firm in the city, and Carrie leaps at the opportunity to spend time in her dream world. The show, and Carrie’s re-

actions, really capture the magic of NYC. I didn’t realize before how much Carrie Bradshaw lives in a fairy tale world of her own creation; now we get to witness her create it. Robb’s acting is perfect, and the look on Carrie’s face as she first enters the city perfectly sums up her wide-eyed wonder. She meets Larissa the first day, (played by “Doctor Who’s” Freema Agyeman), and is immediately whisked away into the rushing excitement of her world in the city. I hope the series continues to focus on her life in the city, because that’s where most of the excitement is. It’s fun to see what a suburban-Connecticut Carrie looked like, but ultimately, Carrie’s story is of her relationship with Manhattan. As she said in the show, “It was the beginning of my Manhattan love story.” daa&

sults are sometimes tense and sometimes hilarious. Tune in to “The Ultimate Fighter” Tuesdays at 10 p.m., and see what all the fuss behind this “cage fighting stuff” is about. ‘Bellator MMA Live’ UFC rival Bellator Fighting Championships fight an uphill battle with “Bellator MMA Live,” but they do so with class and distinction. While Bellator is not, and probably never will be, as popular and well-known as the UFC, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney and Spike TV teamed up to create a quality, entertaining bit of television with “Bellator MMA Live.” If the reality TV side of “The Ultimate Fighter” is too much for you, check out Bellator’s offering. Gone is the melodrama and immaturity often seen on the UFC’s marquee show, and present is all the fighting and smashing your bacon-fueled heart can possibly desire. Similar to contestants on

“The Ultimate Fighter,” Bellator fighters compete in a strict, bracket-based tournament. The difference between “Bellator MMA Live” and “The Ultimate Fighter,” however, is that “Bellator” is all about the fights, and its competitors are already a part of the organization. These guys are not fighting for a spot at the dinner table, they’re fighting for the tenderloin on that 22-ounce, grilled and seasoned porterhouse steak sitting at the center of it. Delicious meats aside, “Bellator MMA Live” is a truly awesome and high-energy spin on mainstream MMA programming, and for fans of live, unscripted, totally real violence, this show is your ticket to dude heaven. I warn you: “Bellator MMA Live” airs Thursdays at 10 p.m., just like “Archer,” so set your DVR or if you don’t have one, analyze your priorities and make a swift decision.

OPINION Avoiding illness in flu season


Thursday January 24, 2013

After several weeks of astonishingly warm temperatures, winter came roaring back to the area this past week, with today marking the third consecutive day of blisteringly cold temperatures featuring lows dipping down into the single digits. In addition to taking steps to keep ourselves warm in this unpleasant weather, it is important to keep in mind that with the cold temperatures comes increased risk of contracting and spreading various illnesses. This is largely due to the fact that we all tend to spend more times indoors to avoid the cold, thereby subjecting ourselves to a

closed circulation of air, and thus increasing our risk of exposure to airborne bacteria and viruses. Considering the busy schedules students suffer through each day, it is obvious why none of us wish to be incapacitated by an avoidable illness. Thus, students should take the following steps to improve their chances of having a sickness-free winter: Take advantage of handsanitizer dispensers Door handles, money, tables, and keyboards are all objects that we must interact with on a daily basis. However, they are also known to enable the transfer of bacteria and viruses

because they are touched by so many people throughout the day. Although it would be unreasonable to expect to go through an entire day without using a keyboard or touching a door handle, using anti-bacterial hand sanitizer is a very effective way to avoid getting sick from touching these objects. Automatic hand sanitizer dispensers are conveniently located throughout West Virginia University’s campus. Take advantage of these dispensers as often as you can. The two seconds it takes to sanitize your hands will go a long way toward preventing the contraction

of an inconvenient illness. Get enough sleep This oft-repeated piece of advice is important for many obvious reasons. Unfortunately, studies have shown college students don’t get enough sleep. It is well established that insufficient sleep weakens the immune system, which makes us more susceptible to illness. Avoid touching your face As previously mentioned, our hands are at great risk of exposure to bacteria and viruses. However, this exposure alone will not make us sick, as our skin serves as an effective barrier against infection.

This is why it is advisable to avoid touching your face, which provides numerous opportunities for pathogens to enter our bodies. Getting sick during this time of the year is not only inconvenient – it is also very costly. The Center for Disease Control estimates that $10.4 billion are spent by corporations on employee health care due to flu season each year in the United States alone. These costs, both personal and for the country as a whole, can certainly be lowered if more people would follow the aforementioned proven health tips.

Banning assault Fox News galled by Obama’s inauguration weapons maggie tennis brown daily herald

In the past year, close to 100 people died as the result of mass shootings. The sites of these killings included universities, high schools, movie theaters, malls, a Sikh temple, a soccer tournament and even a funeral home. Of these victims, 20 were elementary school students, gunned down as systematically as if they were targets in a video game. Adam Lanza killed these children, and I will name each and every victim, because I refuse to give their murderer more attention here than I give them. And if we keep these victims in the spotlight, we will be motivated to continue our discussion of the event that killed them until measures are taken to prevent it from happening ever again. Charlotte Bacon, Daniel Barden, Rachel D’Avino, Olivia Engel, Josephine Gay, Dylan Hockley, Dawn Hochsprung, Madeleine Hsu, Catherine Hubbard, Chase Kowalski, Jesse Lewis, Ana Marquez-Greene, James Mattioli, Grace McDonnell, Anne Marie Murphy, Emilie Parker, Jack Pinto, Noah Pozner, Caroline Previdi, Jessica Rekos, Avielle Richman, Lauren Rousseau, Mary Sherlach, Victoria Soto, Benjamin Wheeler and Allison Wyatt died Dec. 14, 2012, in what should have been the second safest place for them on earth, after their homes. The Sandy Hook tragedy brought increased attention to the issues of public shootings and violence in the United States. But too soon, the discussion shifted from matters of gun control to those of mental health and the cultural normalization of violence. Forget about banning guns, people say. The real solution, many believe, is to improve mental health care. Others dismiss gun availability as the cause of mass shootings and instead blame popular culture – namely video games, rap music, television and film – for glamorizing violence. I agree that both inadequate health care for the mentally ill and our culture’s obsession with violence are key problems that often contribute to heartbreaking tragedies like that of Sandy Hook. But to fixate on these issues undermines the discussion and actions that could ultimately put a stop to mass shootings. Let’s be frank. It is a given that even the best mental health care system is occasionally going to allow a sick person to slip through its cracks. And although we can strengthen regulations on games and movies and music, it is impossible to erase all violent aspects of popular culture, especially in a society that so deplores censorship of any kind. Remember that little thing


called the First Amendment? It’s even more prominent than the Second. No, the action that will make the most progress in ending public, large-scale shootings is banning automatic- and semiautomaticstyle weapons for good. Forget poor health care and a violent society. Fixing these problems does nothing so long as these kinds of weapons are legal. Because even that one mentally ill person who slides by the best mental health experts can’t kill 20 children in a matter of seconds without one. Maybe if Lanza’s weapon had been a knife, or even a non-automatic pistol or rifle, more of the Sandy Hook victims would have survived. It would not have been possible for him to burst through doors, there would have been more time for teachers and children to hide, and there would have been more time for the police to arrive. But when he was wielding a semiautomatic? Those children and their teachers did not stand a chance. Though I personally believe it is possible to make a case for banning all guns, I’m not sure it’s prudent to argue for that at this time. But no civilian citizen needs an automatic or semiautomatic weapon. These weapons are not necessary to fulfill the requirements of gun supporters, because they are not necessary for hunting or self-protection and should not be protected by the Second Amendment right to bear arms. These kinds of weapons did not exist when the Second Amendment was passed. And I would challenge the commonly held notion that the Second Amendment legitimizes gun ownership – a person’s right to bear arms does not surpass a child’s right to grow up. Yet, regardless of how one interprets the Right to Arms Clause, there is simply no viable argument against banning the types of weapons that killed the victims listed above. As a nation, we are certainly talking about the tragedies of the past year. Photographs of the victims – and, unfortunately, of their murderers – are everywhere. Donations continue to pour in for the families and friends of the Sandy Hook victims, and for those of the victims of similar events all over the country. But it is not enough. Yes, we can bemoan the losses and cry and shake our heads. We can complete 26 acts of kindness in honor of the victims, and we can rant about whatever cause we blame for the massacre. But until we seriously advocate a nationwide ban on automatic-style weapons, and until we pass the necessary legislation, the deaths of the past year occurred in vain. We will have to live with the knowledge that, while the self-indulgent cling to their supposed rights, children will lose their lives.


President Barack Obama waves after delivering his Inaugural address at the ceremonial swearing-in at the U.S. Capitol during the 57th Presidential Inauguration in Washington Monday.

kirk auvil columnist

When reality starts to resemble a satirical headline, it’s clear something is amiss, yet in the wake of President Obama’s second inauguration, reality came awfully close to precisely echoing a satirical New Yorker article titled “Republicans accuse Obama of using position as President to lead the country.” And really, when we look at the sour grapes Republican responses to Obama’s inaugural speech, this seemingly absurd headline really clicks into place. The satirical article mocks Republicans’ outrage at Obama’s newfound strength of conviction, indicting him as “cynically and systematically using his position as President to lead the country.” When we look at Fox News’ reaction to Obama’s inauguration, it’s pretty funny how closely their reactions came to just coming out and saying this very thing.

They called him a big government cheerleader and a socialist, but that’s par for the course over there. What I found more amusing was the segment tearing down Obama’s speech with the headline, “Divide and conquer?: President sets stage for policy fights.” Has any faction in Congress’s history been more divisive than the Republican minority we have today? Apart from the secessionist senators during the Civil War, it’s difficult to think of a time when the party in opposition to the president has held its ranks in such regimented lockstep against every single proposal he made. If Obama said the sky is blue, they would filibuster him, and then Joe Wilson would call him a liar. As for Obama’s inaugural address, it seemed pretty standard Obama fare. Sure, he had his passion cranked up to 11, but the man was being inaugurated for the second time. He’s going to feel his

oats; he just got re-elected. But that doesn’t make what he said particularly different from the things he’s been saying since the beginning of his presidential campaign in ’08. The only time he really became truculent was when he threw down the gauntlet on climate change with definitive force. The really funny part was seeing Fox News’ Peter Johnson Jr. rail against Obama for ignoring the large, glaring problems bearing down on America. These problems were things like the deficit, the national debt, unemployment and poverty. And as usual, nobody is more reliable for moral consistency than the employees of Fox News. That’s why during Bush’s two terms, Fox News was a tireless watchdog, constantly harrying those who increased our deficit and grew our national debt. Remember all of their segments bashing Bush and his allies in Congress for mismanaging our national treasure so want

only? We should all just be glad Fox News is applying the same rigorous standards of financial responsibility to Obama that they did to Bush. And then there’s the laughable notion that Fox News and its contributors have been concerned about poverty in any way, shape or form. That said, it is true that poverty is a major issue in America. That’s why Fox News was so outraged when the Republicans in Congress fought so hard to stymie President Obama’s poverty-fighting measures when they were passing through Congress during his first term. Fox News really held those oppositionist Republicans’ feet to the fire for their unrepentant obstructionism. We can all breathe easier knowing that Fox News is out there night and day ready to apply their own tough brand of journalism to every politician who fails to satisfy the organization’s unyielding moral criteria.

Brass quintet to perform at CAC

Bo Huang

Canadian brass brings its high-energy, audience-friendly style to WVU’s Creative Arts Center Friday night.

BY LACEY PALMER Associate A&E Editor

It’s not every day worldrenowned music groups visit West Virginia University, but Friday is one of those days. Canadian Brass is often referred to as “the world’s most famous brass group” and features five brass musicians who are masters of the classical and jazz genres. Formed in 1970 by Chuck Daellenbach and Gene Watts, the brass quintet now features Daellenbach on tuba, Achilles Liarmakopoulos on trombone, Chris Coletti and Brandon Ridenour on trumpet and Eric Reed on horn.

“It’s basically like a close family,” Coletti said. “We’re traveling a good portion of the year and doing everything together. Fortunately, we all like each other and really inspire each other, as well.” The group has sold more than two million albums worldwide and has a discography of more than 100 albums. They have also made appearances on The Tonight Show, Today and Entertainment Tonight. Coletti joined the group in 2009 and believes being a part of such a historical group is a tremendous honor. “I joined the group after already having listened to them my entire life,” Coletti

said. “It’s an honor to be a part of that history.” Musical education also plays a large role in Canadian Brass. They often teach master classes at different universities, including the one they’ll be teaching Thursday here in Morgantown. Aside from Liarmakopoulos, all members went to musicoriented public schools, where they began their careers. “That’s where we got our start,” Coletti said. “That alone is enough to make us realize that it’s really important to continue that tradition of inspiring younger players.” According to Coletti, Canadian Brass does visit

many schools, but they are excited to come to WVU. “We’re looking forward to it,” Coletti said. “Maybe there will be some people who have seen us before and some who have not, so we’re just going to give them our best.” Canadian Brass does not limit their work to classical and jazz music, but instead features a wide variety of musical genres. One of the most popular YouTube videos of the group is their version of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” titled “Brass Romance.” “Whether you love classical music and jazz or you don’t, this is a show you’ll have fun attending,” Coletti said. “We put on a show

with a lot of entertainment on the outside, but on the inside, you’re getting a very firm musical experience. You get to hear music from all different styles, and we will also include a bit of a ballet, so you’ll get to see some dance as well.” Friday night’s performance is based on their most recent album, “Takes Flight,” but the group is currently working on two other albums, which they cannot discuss in full detail yet. “The new projects are quite different from each other – one is something new that we’ve never really done before, and the other is very classical – probably one of the more classical

albums we’ve ever done,” Coletti revealed. “It will feature the music of one famous composer that people into classical music in general should be very excited about.” The show will take place at the Creative Arts Center’s Lyell B. Clay Concert Theater at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Tickets can be purchased at the Mountainlair and the Creative Arts Center box offices from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Student tickets are $28.

Fat Daddy’s Bar & Grill to host local music extravaganza by hunter homistek A&E editor

Local, live music returns to Fat Daddy’s Bar & Grill tonight at 10 p.m., as Fletcher’s Grove and Surgeon General’s Warning look to get bodies moving and grooving throughout the evening. Organized by Music to Your Ears Promotions, this show is the second installment of Live Music Thursdays at Fat Daddy’s. Event promoter Adam Payne said he was pleased with the result of last week’s show, and he hopes to keep the party going tonight. “The last show was awesome,” Payne said. “The crowd was real responsive, and the band sounded great. It’s definitely good for Morgantown to get some music alternative.” To accomplish this, Payne enlisted the help of two of Morgantown’s hottest acts in Fletcher’s Grove and Surgeon General’s Warning. “Fletcher’s Grove has never left a crowd disappointed,” Payne said. “Whether performing on small bar stages or at All Good Music Festival, their dance grooves can wear an audience out by show’s end.” A known commodity within the local Morgantown music scene, Fletcher’s Grove made a name for itself with its signature brand of progressive folk music, and they will perform tonight fresh off the release of their third, fulllength studio album, “Appalachian Reaction.” Also performing tonight is blues rock powerhouse group Surgeon General’s Warning. Formed by Tommy and Jimmy Bailey, owners of Bebop Studios, the group brings a refined, yet pow-


Local favorites Fletcher’s Grove (pictured) will play alongside Surgeon General’s Warning tonight at Fat Daddy’s Bar & Grill. erful and raw sound to the stage. “Surgeon General’s Warning is an up-andcoming local Morgantown act that warns the listener that their music can be hazardous to one’s health,” Payne said. “This bluesbased rock band can get heavy like a rock powerhouse, or they can take you on a soulful journey down saxophone lane.”

For group bassist Tommy Bailey, tonight’s show offers the opportunity to play in front of a new audience and reach a previously untapped crowd. “It’s the first time we’ve played this bar,” Tommy said. “It’s a big bar, so we’re looking to pack the house, and (we’re) expecting it to get pretty crazy.” The group’s sound will certainly fuel the audi-

ence’s fire, as each member pushes an intense blend of passion and power into his respective instrument. “We call it ‘down and dirty blues with a hard rock groove,’” he said. “We also add elements of funk and jazz in our music, and on some of our newer songs, we’re doing a lot more jamming – long, drawn-out sections of songs that are basically improvised solos

over a repeating rhythm and bass pattern.” Where “jamming” is concerned, Tommy notes a similarity to tonight’s headliners, Fletcher’s Grove. “That kind of thing is similar to what Fletcher’s does a lot,” Tommy said. “We also like to add trippy effects throughout. People who like the (Red Hot) Chili Peppers, Gary Clark, Jr., or (Led) Zeppelin would

like us.” With two of Morgantown’s most groove-oriented groups on tap tonight, Fat Daddy’s is sure to provide a head-bobbing, foot-tapping evening of musical perfection. Tonight’s performance will feature a $5 cover, and concertgoers must be 21 years old to attend.

WVU falling short in close McCarthy assigned to games in conference play WNY Flash of NWSL by amit batra

by robert kreis

The West Virginia women’s basketball team had one of its most heartbreaking losses in recent time Tuesday night to Texas Tech. In the 77-73 overtime loss, WVU encountered its fourth Big 12 Conference game decided by less than five points this season. The other three were Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas. West Virginia has found itself on the losing end of those close games three times. The loss also marked the first time since the 2005-06 season when the Mountaineers lost three conference games in a row by either five points or fewer. The threat of losing loomed over the Mountaineers during Tuesday’s game against Texas Tech. As West Virginia had a 38-29 lead at halftime, it appeared that WVU will do enough to get one of its many wins at home this season. That simply was not the case. “Needless to say, we gave that one away,” said head coach Mike Carey. “They dribble-drove us all night. We didn’t defend, didn’t rebound and had opportunities in regulation to win it, and we didn’t do it.” WVU fouled in key sequences including in overtime when Texas Tech converted 6-of-8 free throws. The Lady Raiders’ only field goal came from Christine Hyde as a put back layup. Two bright spots came from West Virginia’s freshman Bria Holmes and sophomore Averee Fields. Fields scored 13 of her 17 points in the first half – she also had seven rebounds, a steal and shot 63.6 percent from the field. Holmes had a career-best 17 points – two more points than the game against Marshall this year in Charleston. “She (Holmes) can

After former West Virginia women’s soccer allAmerican Bry McCarthy was notified Jan. 11 she was one of six players assigned to the Western New York Flash of the new National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL), it allowed her to put a stamp on a list of goals she laid out for herself as a young girl in Ajax, Ontario. “By eighth grade I said ‘OK, I want to play soccer at a high level,’” McCarthy said. “It was always my goal to play for my national team, play professionally and play in college. “Now that I’ve accomplished that, it’s huge. I have my parents to thank for that.” As a member of the Flash, McCarthy will be playing with and against some of the premier athletes in women’s soccer. Some of McCarthy’s teammates include Canadian Jodi-Ann Robinson and American gold medalist Abby Wambach. “To get to play with Abby Wambach and Carli Loyd – American superstars who have also done a lot for this game, and for representing soccer on the North American side – the opportunity is incredible,” McCarthy said. “I never could have asked for anything like this.” McCarthy said she also looks forward to competing against the best in the world, including the Seattle Rain FC’s Hope Solo and the Portland Thorns FC’s Christine Sinclair. “Playing against other great players is going to be so exciting,” McCarthy said. “It’s going to be the highest

Bria Holmes drives towards the basket in the Mountaineers latest matchup against Texas Tech score,” Carey added. “Bria has to learn to play a bit harder and play better defense. She is a big guard that can score inside and out. She came in and did a lot of good things. Hopefully she can build on that.” Even with West Virginia having its seasonbest shooting percentage in conference play this season (42.9 percent), the errors were still there. With the Mountaineers leading by two, following a jumper from sophomore guard Linda Stepney with a little more than 20 seconds remaining, WVU allowed TTU’s Shauntal Nobles to lay the ball in with seven seconds remaining. Stepney would try to win the game with a 3-point attempt at the end of regulation, but it fell well short and sent the game into overtime. Key offensive rebounds

for Texas Tech helped it improve to 15-4 overall and 5-2 in Big 12 play. Winnable games in the late stages have not gone the Mountaineers’ way lately. “We were not blocking out,” Carey said. “Everyone was just standing around under the rim, and they outhustled us on offensive rebounds. They had 19 offensive rebounds, and they just outhustled us, went after balls, and we didn’t step out and box out.” The Mountaineers must correct these issues moving forward. Until West Virginia can win these games instead of letting them slip away, it will have inconsistent play in the Big 12. In most losses this season, WVU had the opportunities to win, but the inability to close out games is the lingering problem.

season and fall once again before heading back home to face a Kansas team that could potentially be ranked No. 1 in the nation? WVU’s season and where they go in the postseason could depend on the answer to that question. “You can’t get too high or too low,” said freshman

guard Eron Harris. “When you win, you’ve got to keep that same hunger from the last game when you lost, and that’s something we’ve got to learn to do. “Some of us got it, some of us don’t. But we’ve got to get on the same page.”

shoot worse than us in the entire country, so we give ourselves a lot of chances,” he said. “When you’re the No. 21 worst-shooting team in America, you’ve got to play hard.” TCU was led by Kyan Anderson’s 19 points, but the Horned Frogs made only 17 field goals in the game West Virginia is entering a crucial stretch of its schedule beginning Satur-

day at Oklahoma State before returning home to face potentially top-ranked Kansas Monday. This win is something the Mountaineers hope to build on, though. “We need to stay focused,” Hinds said. “It’s a win; now it’s in the past. We need to look forward to Oklahoma State Saturday.”


Continued from page 10 “But that’s the way is has to be.” Fortunately for the Mountaineers, their trend of winning games in which they outrebound their opponents indeed continued Wednesday night at the WVU Coliseum, as the Mountaineers grabbed their second-ever Big 12 win against conference foe TCU, also outrebounding the Horned Frogs 42-30. It also helped that 19 of the Mountaineers’ 42 total rebounds were offensive boards. WVU recorded 16 second-chance points from those offensive rebounds, and that number could have been even bigger had just a few more layups fallen for WVU. Senior forwards Deniz Kilicli and Dominique Rutledge each recorded a teamhigh eight rebounds. “For a positive, that is as active as Deniz has been in


Bry McCarthy will play with the Western New York Flash in the National Women’s Soccer League this season. level of competition I could ever ask for. That’s what I’m looking forward to and excited about.” McCarthy is not only excited about playing some of the best competition the world of soccer has to offer; it is also an exciting time in North America to be a part of the sport. The U.S. national team is fresh off an Olympic gold medal, while the Canadian team left London with bronze. All of the international success has McCarthy hoping to earn some medals for herself in the next few years. “With the U.S. coming in first, and Canada coming in third, it’s going to be so big for North America,” McCarthy said. “For myself personally, the World Cup in Canada (in 2015) is another huge goal for me, and the year after is the Rio Olympics. “Those are all in sight, and those are all in line with me. I think playing in this league will help prepare me achieve those goals as well.” But for now, McCarthy

will focus on playing for the WNY Flash, and to be successful in the NWSL, the former Mountaineer knows she has to make some adjustment to her game. “The speed of play is something I can’t even describe,” McCarthy said. “It’s so much faster. Seeing Abby Wambach play, seeing Alex Morgan play – all these girls have technical abilities that you don’t see all the time in collegiate soccer.” Moving on to the pros may mean a faster style of play with more technically sound players, but no matter where McCarthy plays, whether it’s Rio, Canada or Buffalo, N.Y., the pro will always fall back on the tools she learned from head coach Nikki Izzo-Brown at West Virginia University. “If I’m not going to be the best, I’m going to work the hardest,” McCarthy said. “West Virginia, we’re a blue collar school. “I attribute a ton of my success to everything I’ve learned here at West Virginia.”

a long time,” Huggins said. “He was active out on the floor, and he did a lot of positive things. He did a lot of positive things defensively and rebounded the ball better.” And it’s not just West Virginia’s bigs who worked the glass Wednesday night against the Horned Frogs, either. Eleven of the 12 WVU players who saw minutes grabbed at least one rebound. “Lack of size can be an excuse,” said TCU head coach Trent Johnson. “And I thought that there were times where guys were making a conscious mental and physical effort to put a body on people. “When we’ve struggled, it’s been that way. We were dominated on the glass.” In addition to West Virginia’s significant advantage on the boards, the Mountaineers also pleased their head coach by taking care of the ball much better than they have recently. In fact, WVU turned the

ball over 10 times against TCU Wednesday, compared to 17 turnovers in the blowout loss to Purdue in its last game. West Virginia also conversely forced the Horned Frogs into 17 turnovers – 12 outright steals. Still, despite the Mountaineers’ improvements at rebounding and taking care of the ball, WVU’s sixth-year head coach still wasn’t afraid to lay into his team following their 21-point victory. “I guess after all these years, I have learned to not get mad when you win one, but I am not very happy,” Huggins said. “We played really hard, and I thought we did things defensively that we have not done for a really long time. But in the second half, we stopped guarding, which has been kind of what we do. “I was really disappointed, because the second unit that we brought off the bench in the second half didn’t play very well or very hard.”

95% of Mountaineers are non-violent. Take a stand against violence. No one has to do everything... Everyone has to do something. A Green Dot is a moment in time when you keep someone else safe from violence.

NCAA announces problems with Miami investigation

The Daily Athenaeum




NCAA President Mark Emmert speaks at the organization’s annual convention, Thursday, Jan. 17 in Grapevine, Texas. Emmert delivered his state of the association address on the second day of the group’s convention, where several reform measures are on the agenda in the wake of high-profile scandals. CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — The NCAA has found what it calls “a very severe issue of improper conduct” committed by former members of its own enforcement program during the Miami investigation, and will not deliver the longawaited notice of allegations against the Hurricanes until an external review is completed. NCAA President Mark Emmert announced the findings Wednesday. The sports governing body said former enforcement staff members worked with the criminal defense attorney for former Miami booster and convicted Ponzi scheme architect Nevin Shapiro “to improperly obtain information ... through a bankruptcy proceeding that did not involve the NCAA.” “I am deeply disappointed and frustrated and even angry about these circumstances,” said Emmert, who also described it as “a shocking affair.” The NCAA would not reveal the name of the attorney involved. Shapiro has been represented by Maria Elena Perez, a Miami graduate. Perez did not immediately return a request for comment from The Associated Press on Wednesday. A person in Perez’s office

told the AP that the attorney was working in New York and would forward a message left at her office. One key person in the investigation has been former Miami equipment-room staffer Sean Allen, who was deposed by Perez as part of Shapiro’s bankruptcy proceedings. If the NCAA found it could not use the information gleaned in that particular deposition, that would be a development figuring to favor the Hurricanes Miami President Donna Shalala in a statement released through the university that she is “frustrated, disappointed and concerned” that the NCAA may have compromised the investigation. “As we have done since the beginning, we will continue to work with the NCAA and now with their outside investigator hoping for a swift resolution of the investigation and our case,” Shalala said. Shalala’s statement also said Miami first informed the NCAA of possible violations more than two years ago. “I have been vocal in the past regarding the need for integrity by NCAA member schools, athletics administra-

tors, coaches, and studentathletes,” Emmert said. “That same commitment to integrity applies to all of us in the NCAA national office.” Emmert said the NCAA learned of the alleged misconduct, in part, through legal bills presented by Shapiro’s attorney for work that was not properly approved by the organization’s general counsel’s office. “One of the questions that has to be answered, unequivocally, is what was the nature of that contractual arrangement and what was all the activity that that individual was involved with,” Emmert said. “There is some uncertainty about all of that and it’s one of the first orders of business for the firm that we’ve hired to investigate.” Emmert spoke angrily at times during a half-hour conference call to discuss the findings, in which he revealed that he briefed the NCAA’s executive committee and the Division I board presidents with some information about the Miami matter. He said he developed a better understanding of what went on in the days that followed, which led to the hiring of Kenneth





L. Wainstein of the firm Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP to conduct the external review of what happened. Emmert said he hopes that process could be completed within two weeks, and that the investigation would continue with “appropriately acquired evidence.” The NCAA utilized information from two depositions conducted as part of the bankruptcy case, and Emmert said one of the questions he wants Wainstein’s query to answer will be, “How in the world can you get this far without it being recognized that this was an inappropriate way to proceed? “We cannot have the NCAA bringing forward an allegation that’s predicted on information that was collected by processes none of us could stand for,” Emmert said. “We’re going to move it as fast as possible, but we have to get this right.” The Hurricanes’ athletic compliance practices have been probed by the NCAA for nearly two years. Allegations of wrongdoing involving Miami’s football and men’s basketball programs became widely known in August 2011 when Yahoo Sports published accusations brought by Shapiro, who is serving a 20-year term in federal prison for masterminding a $930 million Ponzi scheme. Miami has self-imposed two postseason bans in response to the investigation. The Hurricanes also would have played in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game this past season, meaning they could have qualified for the Orange Bowl. “Although we are deeply disappointed in this turn of events, we strongly support the actions President Emmert is taking to address the problem,” said Lou Anna K. Simon, the NCAA’s executive committee chair and Michigan State’s president. This would figure to be another significant issue for the NCAA and its enforcement department. Among the others pending: A California case filed by former Southern Cal assistant football coach Todd McNair, who said the NCAA was “malicious” in its investigation into his role in the benefits scandal surrounding Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Frederick Shaller said he was convinced the actions of NCAA investigators were “over the top.” Earlier this month, the NCAA was sued by Pennsylvania Gov. Thomas W. Corbett, who claimed the sports governing body overstepped its authority and “piled on” when it penalized Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky scandal last summer. The governor asked a federal judge to throw out the sanctions, arguing that the measures – which include a four-year bowl ban and $60 million fine – have harmed students, business owners and others who had nothing to do with Sandusky’s crimes. And now comes Miami, an investigation that was believed to be nearing an end. Many people who expected to be named in the notice of allegations had been briefed in recent days about what charges they may face, and the NCAA and Miami had reviewed some draft, or preliminary, findings. Now the drawn-out inquiry has taken its most bizarre turn. “In my two-and-a-half years I’ve certainly never seen anything like this, and don’t want to see it again,” Emmert said.

Win against TCU proves nothing by michael carvelli sports editor

Patrick Gorrell/ The Daily Athenaeum

West Virginia freshman guard Eron Harris drive to the basket against TCU Wednesday night.

Harris scores career-high 19, Mountaineers end three-game losing streak By Nick arthur

Associate Sports editor

It wasn’t pretty, but West Virginia got a win it desperately neeeded. The Mountaineers (99, 2-3) ended their threegame losing streak with a 71-50 victory against visiting TCU (9-10, 0-6) Wednesday night in the first-ever meeting between the two schools. A crowd of 7,094 took in the action at the Coliseum

– the smallest for a WVU home conference game since Jan. 28, 2009. Freshman guard Eron Harris scored a career-high 19 points on 5-of-6 shooting, while senior forward Deniz Kilicli and sophomore guard Jabarie Hinds chipped in 11 and 10 points, respectively. Despite the win, West Virginia had a sloppy outing, shooting just 56 percent from the free-throw line and 43 percent from

the field. “I guess after all these years, I’ve learned you don’t give them back when you win one, but I’m not very happy,” said West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins. “I thought we played really, really hard. I thought defensively, we did the things that we’ve done for a long time. But in the second half, we stopped guarding, which is what we do.” The key to victory for West Virginia was forcing 17

TCU turnovers, resulting in 20 Mountaineer points. WVU used pressure defense throughout the entire game, taking advantage of something they saw on film. “We wanted to just put pressure on their guards and make them uncomfortable,” Hinds said. “We needed a win so we can try to get the roll going. And it started tonight with this win, so that’s a good thing.” Harris was the go-to guy on the offensive end of the

floor, playing his best game of the season. The Indianapolis native has now scored in double figures in three consecutive games. For the freshman, it has just been a matter of getting reps within the offense. “I’m just playing ball now, like I have since I was three years old. But just inside the offense,” Harris said. “When I get it and I

Effort on boards lead WVU to win by doug walp sports writer

West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins has never asked for anything extravagant from his players. Represent your state well, play physical defense, take care of the basketball, and rebound. The Mountaineers took care of these basic tenets Wednesday night at home against TCU, earning one of their biggest margins of victory of the entire season by dropping the Horned Frogs 71-50 at the WVU Coliseum. Huggins actually explained earlier in the year that playing physically and rebounding are, in fact, one in the same, because according to him, that’s ultimately all rebounding is – a test to see who is the most physical, who wants it the most.

bounding has also been a fairly major determinant in its success this season, or lack thereof, in most circumstances. In fact, the Mountaineers are now 8-2 when outrebounding their opponents, and yet just a pedestrian 1-7 in games that they do not. Part of the problem when they don’t rebound, according to Huggins, is the Mountaineers may simply have too many nice guys who don’t physically impose their will enough by vehemently going after the basketball. “We just don’t have aggressive people by nature,” Huggins said. “We have a whole bunch of laid-back, nice guys. They are very laid-back, and the reality is, I think, for a good portion of them, this is not the most important thing to them.

There wasn’t much that West Virginia could prove by beating TCU Wednesday night. The Horned Frogs were seated firmly in last place in the Big 12 Conference, had lost all five of their conference games (including four by double figures), and – with the exception of allowing the fewest points per game among the teams in the league – they were among the nation’s worst in a handful of statistical categories. Basically, all the Mountaineers were able to do in their 71-50 win, other than find a way to stop their three-game losing streak, was prove they aren’t the worst team in the Big 12. “We play good one game, and I say something, and then the next game we lose by 30, so I don’t want to jinx anything,” said senior forward Deniz Kilicli. While it was definitely a much-needed win, and a win that a team struggling as much as this WVU team has been will definitely take, there were still moments when it wasn’t able to pull away the way it should have. The Mountaineers let TCU hang around much longer than a team that turned the ball over as much as it made shots should have on the road, especially against a team with much more talent. For head coach Bob Huggins, it was just another instance where he saw his team’s true attitude. It’s an attitude he hasn’t had to deal with much, and, until it changes, the path the Mountaineers are currently on likely won’t either. “To a good portion of them, this is not the most important thing to them,” Huggins said. “That’s the way it has to be. I tell them, ‘College is the greatest time of your life – enjoy it,’ but take care of your business first.” It’s something Huggins isn’t used to. The veteran head coach has made 19 of the last 20 NCAA tournaments and has never finished with less than 20 wins in back-to-back years in his coaching career. Right now, with 13 regular season games remaining and its postseason future in jeopardy, West Virginia needs 11 wins to keep that streak alive. “In all honesty, winning has become kind of expected. Losing is excruciatingly painful,” Huggins said. “My dad quit (coaching) because the losing was affecting him so much. “It’s like Saturday (against Purdue), they took us off CBS. We’ve done things I’ve never had anybody do; I’ve never had a team like that. I’ve never had a team not compete like that.” And it’s nothing new to hear Huggins talk like that about this team. He’s mentioned on numerous occasions this season the difference he’s seen with this year’s Mountaineers and teams with the likes of Kevin Jones and Da’Sean Butler and other players who were willing to put in as much extra time as they could to get better. “You get out of this game what you put into it,” Huggins said after the game. “If you don’t invest anything, why would you expect to get anything out (of it)? You can’t win the lottery unless you buy a ticket.” So, of course, it was good for the Mountaineers to get a win over anybody – even a team as bad as TCU – coming off of that lopsided loss to Purdue. But you can’t really take much from this game until you see how the Mountaineers perform Saturday on the road against an Oklahoma State team that is much more talented than
