FAFSA deadline rapidly approaching By Caroline Peters Staff writer

The time to apply for federal student financial aid is now, and it is important students make note of the deadline. “The very first thing students need to know is that our deadline is March 1,” said Tresa Weimer, interim director of the Financial Aid and Scholarship Department of West Virginia Uni-

versity. “That’s to ensure that they are considered for all available funding.” The FAFSA is a form all students need to complete, regardless of their financial state. Many students leave it to their parents to fill out the paperwork. However, according to Weimer, even the slightest mistake could result in less money. “My mom takes care of my FAFSA for me. I’ve been

to the website once. It’s my main source of scholarships and grants,” said Pilar Ayala, an engineering student at WVU. ”I know if she messes up, I won’t get all the money possible, sometimes even $1,000 (less).” Learning how to fill out the FAFSA or assisting parents in the process could help students avoid some of the common errors that occur.

“The most common mistake students or parents make when filling out the FAFSA happens when they list their income and taxes as the exact same,” Weimer said. “However, they can avoid this problem by using their W2s as an estimate or their actual tax return if they’ve already filed.” WVU student Erin Brenan said she has encountered this issue throughout her college years.


“Every year, the FAFSA is due around the time my parents need to file their taxes,” Brenan said. “But they always file for an extension, so when the tax part of the FAFSA needs to be filled in, there’s a lot of technicalities.” Brenan said she didn’t realize applicants are allowed to fill in an estimate on the FAFSA. “Many people think that they cannot fill out the tax

Sbarro’s Italian cuisine makes its return to the Mountainlair by alyssa pluchino staff writer

Sbarro in the Mountainlair officially reopened after months of renovations, bringing Italian cuisine back to the students of West Virginia University. It gets better: the University renegotiated its contract with Sbarro last year, allowing the restaurant to accept student meal plans, Bonus Bucks and Mountie Bounty during its dinner serving hours. Many renovations were needed to accommodate the expected increase in customers. Upgrading equipment, adding extra ovens and removing outdated appliances were all requirements of the franchise relationship the University established with Sbarro. After overcoming bankruptcy in November of 2011, the Sbarro chain made a great comeback as it introduced its new Neapolitan menu Jan. 1. With the debut of their new cuisine, Sbarro claims to be better for students’ health and wallets. “It’s a complete reworking of the previous menu, so all the pizzas served at Sbarro from here on will be made with higher quality ingredients than

A West Virginia University student recently partnered with the sustainable enterprise organization Bangs Shoes to help gain experience in her career and benefit four nonprofit organizations. Junior fashion design and merchandising student Elleyse Gemondo is helping raise awareness for Bangs on WVU’s campuses.

By Madison Fleck Staff writer


Senior broadcast journalism student Jonathon Nelson traveled from the Evansdale campus to enjoy lunch at Sbarro in the Mountainlair.

“The organization helps raise awareness and funding for complex issues around the globe,” Gemondo said. The name of the organization comes from the Chinese symbol “help,” and the phonetic pronunciation of the character is spelled b-a-n-g. Founder and president Hannah Davis wanted to connect the name of the company to the ideology and inspiration and named the organization Bangs. Davis designed four dif-

ferent canvas shoes to represent the four nonprofit organizations. Twenty percent of each purchase goes to the corresponding nonprofit. Red Bangs represent the Disaster Immediate Response Team, which works to provide natural disaster aid. “DIRT partners with local organizations to allow communities to fully recover and develop sustainability within the context of their own community,” Ge-

mondo said. Blue Bangs represent Drop in the Bucket, which recognizes water as a human necessity for education as well as personal and social development. Drop in the Bucket sets up wells and sanitation systems in schools in Africa, giving children in rural areas access to clean water, Gemondo said. Green Bangs represent

West Virginia University’s College of Business & Economics will welcome its first speaker of the 201213 Distinguished Speaker Series event Thursday. The B&E has hosted this series for several years and aims to invite three to five speakers in both the fall and spring semesters. Jose Sartarelli, Milan Puskar Dean of the College of Business and Economics, said the purpose of the speaker series is to make sure students are not only exposed to professors and literature but also gain first-hand experience in the business world. “I think it’s a great opportunity to bring in individuals who have done well in the business world, finance, government and other areas of the work force to share life and leadership lessons with our students,” Sartarelli said. Bonnie Anderson, director of Alumni Relations and assistant director of Development for the College of Business and Economics, said the speakers know the majority of the

audience is made up of students, so they speak directly to them. Lynne Fruth, a WVU alumna, is now the president of a regional drug store chain and chairman of the board, Fruth Pharmacy, with 26 outlets in West Virginia and Ohio. “Fruth with be our first speaker,” he said. “We will then have a gentleman speak Feb. 28 and then hopefully a speaker in April.” When choosing speakers, Sartarelli said they often choose a graduate of WVU, but they have gone above and beyond that before. “One major criterion for choosing a speaker is whether or not this person has caused any impact in the business world,” he said. “For instance, have they built a business? Hired a lot of people? Developed a new technology? Opened up a new market? Or someone who has been a trailblazer in education.” Her late father, Jack Fruth, founded Fruth Pharmacy in Point Pleasant, W.Va., in 1952 after

The season of summer internship applications is rapidly approaching, and the West Virginia University College of Business and Economics has been called to the rescue. The college’s “Resume 911” program will be available at the advising center on the third floor of the B&E throughout the semester, and no appointment is necessary. “What we offer is as an opportunity for students to have someone to act as a quick glance to their resume,” said Greg Goodwin, career counselor at B&E. “As students are doing the fine tuning to their resume, we definitely recommend them to bring it by.” According to Goodwin, the program is not time

consuming. “Students can just come by and have a seat, have their resume looked at really quick and be on their way,” Goodwin said. “Resume 911” serves as a benefit to students prior to career fairs, he said. Goodwin said it is never too early for students to start building resumes. “I try to get students within the B&E to come and meet with me as soon as possible,” he said. “You never know when you will have the chance to pass your resume on to a potential employer.” Although freshmen may not currently apply for internships, there may still be a need to begin building a resume. “Those part time jobs that you might work while here on campus or

Obama outlines proposed immigration reforms LAS VEGAS (AP) — Declaring “now is the time” to fix the nation’s broken immigration system, President Barack Obama on Tuesday outlined broad proposals for putting millions of illegal immigrants on a clear path to citizenship while cracking down on businesses that employ people illegally and tightening security at the borders. He hailed a bipartisan Senate group on a similar track but left unresolved key details that could derail the complex and emotional effort. Potential Senate roadblocks center on how to structure the avenue to citizenship and on whether legislation would cover samesex couples – and that’s all before a Senate measure could be debated, approved and sent to the Republicancontrolled House where opposition is sure to be stronger. Obama, who carried Nevada in the November election with heavy Hispanic support, praised the Senate push, saying Congress is showing “a genuine desire to get this done soon.” But mindful of previous immigrations efforts that have failed, he warned that the debate would be difficult and vowed to send his own legislation to Capitol Hill if law-

I believe that we do.” Shortly after Obama finished speaking, cracks emerged between the White House and the group of eight senators, which put out their proposals one day ahead of the president. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, faulted Obama for not making a citizenship pathway contingent on tighter border security, a central tenet of the lawmakers’ proposals. “The president’s speech left the impression that he believes reforming immigration quickly is more important than reforming immigration right,” Rubio said in a statement. House Speaker John Boehner also responded coolly, with spokesman Brendan Buck saying the Ohio Republican hoped the president would be “careful not to drag the debate to Khaki Bangs represent CHOICE Humanitarian, a grassroots organization that partners with local communities on specific development projects placing a heavy emphasis on self-reliance. “CHOICE allows the needs and visions of individual communities to fuel the goals of each project,” why,” Withers said. “But they took care of me after I called and talked to someone about my situation.” Students and parents save money by becoming aware of minor but financechanging mistakes, Weimer said. “Lastly, students need to make sure they put WVU’s code on the FAFSA, or they will not be eligible,“ she said. “We are hosting a ‘College Goal Sunday’ Feb. 10 for anyone who needs help filling out the FAFSA.” For more information, visit or http://financialaid.wvu. edu.

makers in the Senate represents a drastic shift in Washington’s willingness to tackle immigration, an issue that has languished for years. Much of that shift is politically motivated, due to the growing influence of His-

“Even if they’re not a graduate of WVU, we hope students are able to see themselves in these people.” Fruth was named into the National Association of Chain Drug Stores Board of Directors in 2011 and inducted into the Marshall University Business Hall of Fame in 2012. Through the speaker series, Sartarelli and Anderson said they hope to open students’ minds to career and life possibilities. “As one of five children, I think Fruth is a great example of someone reinventing theirselves,” Sartarelli said. Fruth will be sharing the history, setbacks and turnaround of Fruth Pharmacy at the event Thursday, as well as insights about business in general. “Students need to hear realistic accounts of what it takes to get to the top and the kind of gut-wrenching decisions that executives have to make at times and that dreams are worth chasing and working for,” Fruth said. “There is no substitute

for hard work; leadership is the key to be a success in any business, and people will need to have courage to be successful in whatever they do.” Fruth currently serves on the WVU School of Pharmacy’s Visiting Committee. “As a University, I think we should work to create an equal system to greater learning,” Sartarelli said. “The more people we bring to campus from different walks of life, the better off we are. It brings a rich element to the education experience.” Guest speakers in years past have included John Chambers, chairman and CEO of Cisco, and the founder of 84 Lumber, Joe Hardy.

Fruth said the mission of Fruth Pharmacy is to earn the trust of their patients and communities by providing high-quality personalized healthcare with excellent customer service, unique merchandise and a spirit of community support. “We want to be the hometown family pharmacy,” she said. “It’s also important for us to provide quality jobs and benefits to nearly 700 of our employees.” Fruth first came to WVU as a scholar athlete on the

For example, if a student held a waiter position at a restaurant, the student may be under the impression that the position has nothing to do with his or her major and is therefore insignificant on a resume, he said. “They need to think in terms of transferable skills and abilities,” Goodwin said. “They need to really think about what their responsibilities were when they had the job and what skills they can take from

that job and end up using them when they look for an internship or full-time job directly related to their major.” Goodwin said these positions held in college often give students skills such as customer service and conflict resolution skills. Small jobs help students learn teamwork “Those are the kinds of skills that people can get from just about any kind of job out there, and those are the types of things that employers are looking for,” Goodwin said.

Marvel announces third ‘Avengers’ film

Marvel’s ‘Avengers’ prepare for the third film of the series.

By Laura CIAROLLA A&E Writer

After the release of Marvel’s “The Avengers� last summer, the hype for superhero movies has grown. Fans are already itching to see more of their favorite comic book heroes, and Marvel is working hard to make that happen throughout the next few years. So far, we’ve only been exposed to “Phase One� of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which consists of six films: “Iron Man,� “The Incredible Hulk,� “Iron Man 2,� “Thor,� “Captain America: The First Avenger� and “The Avengers.� “Phase Two� is set to launch in May with the release of “Iron Man 3.� “Thor: The Dark World� will also be released in 2013, and “Captain America: The Winter Solider� and “Guardians of the Galaxy� will appear in 2014. Joss Whedon will take on directorial duties for “The Avengers 2,� which is slated for a 2015 release. During the last year,

there has been a lot of speculation about which films will be included in “Phase Three� of the MCU. Recently, however, Marvel’s Kevin Feige confirmed the Edgar Wrightdirected “Ant-Man� movie in November of 2015 will be the official start of the phase. “‘Ant-Man’ is definitely part of ‘Phase Three.’ Like ‘Iron Man 3,’ it’s certainly set in the Marvel Universe, but it’s also through the lens of Edgar Wright – which is the only reason we’re making the movie,� Feige said in an interview with MTV News. “It’s very much an ‘AntMan’ original movie from the perspective of Edgar Wright and his co-writer, Joe Cornish. It will, of course, be firmly planted in the MCU but a different corner than we’ve seen before.� In the Marvel Universe, Ant-Man is a superhero and member of The Avengers. Wright’s film will feature Dr. Hank Pym, the original hero, although

there are multiple incarnations of Ant-Man within the comic universe. Pym is a biochemist who discovers subatomic particles, that allow him to create size-altering formula. He also creates a helmet that gives him the ability to communicate with ants. According to Feige, Wright has been attached to the project since before “Phase One� was even launched. “I’ve known Edgar (Wright) since our first lunch together at ComicCon in 2004. He asked me what Marvel was doing with ‘Ant-Man’–we weren’t even a studio then. What a difference eight years makes.� The only other film officially confirmed to be in “Phase Three� will feature Marvel hero Doctor Stephen Strange. The comic book character Doctor Strange is a former neurosurgeon and current Sorcerer Supreme of Earth. After a car accident damaged his hands, thus

destroying his career in neurosurgery, Dr. Strange discovers a hermit in the Himalayas while searching for a cure. The “Ancient One,� as the hermit is called, takes Strange as his disciple, leading him to become the most powerful magician in the world. “‘Doctor Strange,’ which I’ve been talking about for years, is definitely one of them,� Feige said of the films included in “Phase Three.� “He’s a great, original character, and he checks the box off this criteria that I have: He’s totally different from anything else we’ve done before, as is ‘Ant-Man,’ which keeps us excited.� It’ll be a while before we see a “Doctor Strange� movie—after “Ant-Man� in 2015—but Marvel should keep us entertained in the meantime. Don’t forget, we haven’t even seen “Phase Two� yet, which officially starts May 3 with the release of “Iron Man 3.� daa&

Robert Downey Jr. plays the role of Iron Man in Marvel’s ‘Avengers’.

A final ‘30 Rock’ showcases its unsung music man NEW YORK (AP)— “When stuff is coming to an end, people freak out and they act crazy,� says Liz Lemon. Liz and all the characters of “30 Rock� are doing just that on the series finale (airing Thursday at 8 p.m. EST on NBC) as they produce one last installment of their showwithin-that-show, “TGS,� while anticipating life apart from one another. But Jeff Richmond wasn’t freaking out, not even with the end (and a tight deadline) breathing down his neck: Just last Friday he was in a studio in midtown Manhattan, closeted with an eight-piece string ensemble, his baton raised, recording interludes of background music for that final episode. After seven seasons (plus 14 Emmys, six Golden Globes and a Peabody Award), there are many reasons to remember “30 Rock� fondly: The silky self-importance of soon-to-be-former Kabletown CEO Jack Donaghy (played by Alec Baldwin). The naked, comically off-kilter ambition of “TGS� star Jenna Moroney (played by Jane Krakowski). The manic abandon of her co-star, Tracy Jordan (played by Tracy Morgan). There’s Kenneth, the toothy true believer (played by Jack McBrayer), who last week was promoted from janitor to president of NBC. And could any viewer ever forget the unexpected newlywed and mother of adopted twins played by “30 Rock� mastermind Tina Fey? As the frazzled, none-toospunky producer of “TGS,� Liz Lemon has been a new-millennium Mary Richards for whom “you’re gonna make it after all� always seemed a

long shot. But Jeff Richmond—an unseen, unsung hero of “30 Rock�—has been essential, too, for his service as the composer and arranger of the show’s distinctive score (in addition to his duties as executive producer and, by the way, Fey’s husband of 12 years). At the show’s inception, Richmond composed the “30 Rock� theme song, which, in its tight 17 seconds, teems with cultural references and preparation for the show it introduces. “It’s got a Gene Krupa drum thing and a baritone saxophone, like you’d hear in a burlesque show,� he says, listing some of its influences, “and it’s very New York - Cy Coleman, Frank Loesser. And the doo-wop singers make it feel a little retro.� For fans of “30 Rock,� that theme by now seems second-nature. But every week since the show debuted in fall 2006, Richmond has fashioned the background music that sonically frames the madcap action. “The writers do such a great job creating these intricate stories,� he said. “The music helps clue the audience in to the recurring patterns and themes.� Thus is the music Richmond conjures a guide and an organizing principle. It is treasure buried just beneath the surface of the viewer’s consciousness, enhancing the personality of “30 Rock�— without the audience even needing to notice. On Friday, Richmond was presiding at a major scoring session for the hourlong finale at John Kilgore Sound &

Recording. “I’m tired of writing goodbye music for all the characters,� Richmond said with a laugh. For instance: The show’s “Liz� theme - a bouncy, familiar tune heard since the very first episode that was often arranged with a Scott Joplin lilt, but here was reimagined as lush and sentimental. With Richmond busy in the studio, Kilgore was in the control room piloting software that resembled a souped-up version of GarageBand while “30 Rock� music producer Giancarlo Vulcano logged the progress on a laptop and oldfashioned sheet music. Next to be recorded was a piece that sounded like a mash-up of Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein; “Hoedown� meets “On the Town.� “Jeff, I like that take,� said Vulcano at one point. “But it should be, almost, ethereal, yeah?� “This is Jack’s big happy montage,� agreed Richmond. “He’s finally happy. He’s finally killing it!� Richmond addressed his musicians: “You ever see that movie `The Natural’? Like, when Robert Redford hits that ball up in the air?� Everyone laughed. A large recording session isn’t the norm for “30 Rock.� More often, Richmond layers the instruments one on another, with many of them played by him. “It’s not because I’m a great player, it’s out of necessity: I work so late, I generally can’t write charts for seven or eight pieces of music and bring players in,� he explained. “I play the piano and saxophones and clari-

nets. Giancarlo is very gifted with the guitar, banjo and ukulele.� Strings and percussion are usually synthesized, “but every triangle you hear is real.� Late in the process, Richmond and Vulcano could typically be found at Sync Sound, a Manhattan post-production house, where in a cozy room on a Tuesday afternoon a few weeks ago, they were laying in finished tracks of music while scenes from the episode unfolded on a monitor. “As an executive producer, I’m around for the writing and the read-throughs, so I know where the scripts are heading,� said Richmond, 52, who has curly, tousled hair, a beard and black-rim glasses, and speaks in eager bursts. By a typical Monday, “I’ll feel like we mostly have it, and we start laying it in. But then we may find we have some holes, or realize this piece of music isn’t working, so let’s take it out. I start digging around for something, maybe a clarinet part from

It is only by Tuesday evening that the finished music joins the dialogue and sound effects, then merges with the finished video.

Now’s the time to tackle immigration It’s been just more than a week since President Barack Obama was inaugurated for his second term, but he is already moving swiftly to advance his agenda. At the top of his list of priorities is comprehensive immigration reform. “Now’s the time,” President Obama said in a speech on Tuesday, to fix the “out of date and badly broken” immigration system currently in place in the United States. Although President Obama has not yet put forth a de-

tailed proposal, he has stressed that if Congress does not act in a “timely fashion,” he will. Congress should seize this moment to tackle this monumental issue immediately. There have been some positive signs in the early stages of this reform process. Arizona Sen. John McCain, who previously opposed similar reform efforts, has expressed a change in his position. “The Republican Party is losing the support of our Hispanic citizens,” McCain

said. He credited this reality with helping him reformulate his position on immigration. Although this statement lends credence to the cynical charicature of politicians who simply stake out positions after checking the opinion polls, McCain’s realization regarding immigration is encouraging. He isn’t the only Republican to come to terms with the reality that immigration reform is a necessity, and a bipartisan commission that has been dubbed the

“Gang of Eight” is currently formulating a proposal. The main goal President Obama has previously stated for any immigration reform effort is a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants who pass a criminal background check, pay taxes and can speak English. He has also stressed the need for measures to deter employers from hiring illegal immigrants and increased border security to help stop the illegal flow of immigrants across the border.

The fact that both parties have accepted the urgency of addressing immigration reform is definitely a positive development. Hopefully, a bipartisan solution to this problem will be born out of these efforts. If not, President Obama must follow through with his threat to take bold, assertive measures to pressure Congress into passing this legislation.

How being attractive contributes to success molly robinson columnist

Like it or not, being attractive is a huge part of college life. Having a pretty face will often garner free drinks, easier access to clubs, increased popularity and as many interested girls and guys as one could want. But even after college, science suggests that having a more aesthetically pleasing appearance will contribute, not just to your social life, but to a career, as well. Firstly, however, it’s imperative to define what exactly being pretty means. Numerous studies indicate that attractiveness is dependent on facial symmetry. In the end, it all comes down to the

genes you were blessed with. Typically, more symmetrical and universally appealing facial features are the result of heterozygosity within cells, which in turn is subconsciously associated with increased health benefits and disease resistance. And, in the big scheme of things, most people prefer the mother or father of their potential children to be as healthy and viable as possible, leading these more symmetrical individuals to have more mating opportunities than your average Joe. Besides the obvious ability to attract multitudes of people, it’s been recently discovered that prettier people receive more raises and on average make more than less comely workers. According to a study performed by Daniel Hamer-

mesh of the University of Texas at Austin, attractive men may earn up to 13 percent more than those deemed less attractive. And during a recession? Take the extra time to get ready. According to the same study, beautiful people are more likely to receive jobs in hard financial times as well. Society has long been overwhelmed by beauty, and certain “featured trends” come and go. For instance, smaller breast size was favored in the Middle Ages, and in Victorian times, it was the coveted “hourglass figure.” And up until the 1920s, being pale was a sign of affluence. After this time, however, sunbathing was prescribed for a multitude of diseases – including tuberculosis, one of the leading causes of death at the time.

Ever since, the tan has been a huge part of “looking good.” So if beauty is such a variable aspect, why is it so incredibly important to everyday well-being? Although most of the benefits of being beautiful come from subconscious aspects, it’s an undeniable truth that the prettier someone is, the more easily things seem to come to them, which may contribute to the stereotype that selfishness and attractiveness often go hand-in-hand. Essentially, we are awarding people based on a genetic roll of the dice. Now, before you more average readers start to resent every good-looking girl or guy who comes you way, think about it this way: we are all genetic rolls of the dice. You, right now, are being

awarded or respected or becoming successful based on some genetic predisposition you were gifted with, whether it be intelligence, creativity, hard work, or, yes, even that elusive beauty. Even though who we are is an assimilation of the genetics we have and the experiences we’ve been through, that doesn’t necessarily mean that one aspect of your person is going to make or break your life. For example, even though prettier people do tend to make more, this factor is often a double-edged sword. That is, if a more attractive person doesn’t perform, they generally receive more disapproval, since they are inherently expected to do well. On the flip side, less-attractive individuals often receive more praise for good work, because they are not typically

expected to do as well. So even though there’s scientific backing to the age-old idea that pretty people tend to only think of themselves, let it be a reminder than one simple feature does not need to rule your life. Even if you’re a beautiful, brilliant, hard-working, and goodnatured individual (and if you are, give me a call), it doesn’t have to have a detrimental effect on your basic personality. In essence, don’t let one aspect become too imperative to who you become. We are all a mixture of traits, and it’s not necessary for one in particular to have such a negative effect on your whole persona. Be who you are, whoever it is, and don’t let one feature – good or bad – affect who you are deep down.

United States economic sustainability is dependent on balancing the budget william alston the dartmouth

It is not uncommon for the more liberal elements of American politics to praise the welfare states found by the North Sea or north of our border. It is indeed admirable how effectively such countries ensure the quality of life of their citizens. But it is misleading and unhelpful to think of these countries as offering an alternative social and economic model to that of the United States. It is far better to view Scandinavian countries and Canada as comparable countries with successful practices that we can and ought to emulate. For proof that we are not so different, look at the Heritage Foundation’s 2013 Index of Economic Freedom. Canada is sixth in this rank-


ing, Denmark ninth, the U.S. 10th, Finland 16th and Sweden 18th. All of these countries surpassed the U.S. in business freedom as well, partly due to lower corporate tax rates. Sweden’s government commands 51.3 percent of the GDP compared to America’s 42 percent and Canada’s 42.9 percent, and the U.S. spends an additional 5.3 percent of GDP on tax expenditures. At any rate, America, Sweden and Canada can each be accurately categorized as having mixed market economies and big governments. In light of Sweden and Canada’s substantial welfare states, it is impressive that they have kept balanced budgets and debtto-GDP ratios below 50 percent. Though much of this can be credited to a steady stream of tax revenue, it is also due to foresighted pension reforms; unlike So-

cial Security, which uses a demographically unsustainable “pay-as-yougo” system, Canada’s state pension plan is partially funded, while Sweden’s state pensions are partially privatized. Yet we would do well to recall the early 1990s, when Canada had a chronic deficit of six percent GDP in 1994 with unemployment at 10 percent, and when Sweden’s deficit was a whopping 13 percent of GDP with unemployment at 10 percent in 1993. By comparison, America’s current unemployment rate stands at 7.8 percent and the deficit is 8 percent of GDP. Despite elevated unemployment rates, Sweden and Canada massively reduced their deficits during the 1990s, primarily through spending cuts. In Canada, seven dollars of spending was slashed for every one dollar in tax

increases. Cherished social programs were gutted and tens of thousands of public employees were let go. But by 1998, neither country had a deficit, while unemployment had fallen as well. In contrast, over the last five years, the U.S. increased spending and reduced taxes in the face of high unemployment and a high deficit. Compared to Canada and Sweden’s successes in the 1990s, current results in the U.S. have not been nearly as good. While Canada and Sweden also reduced taxes during the most recent recession, they did so from positions of relative fiscal strength, thus aiding the economic recovery without deepening their fiscal holes. Admittedly, these countries began their cuts during the 1990s with spending and tax levels higher than those in the U.S. Thus, tax cuts will be less effective

in the U.S. today than they were in Canada and Sweden and spending cuts will hurt more. However, despite the fact that government spending is no longer a larger share of GDP in Canada than in the U.S., Canada continues to forge ahead with such spending cuts. Beyond fiscal policy, the North still has much to teach us. School choice programs introduced in the 1990s in Sweden have offered parents with limited means the ability to send their children to private schools. Contrary to American fears that such programs will undermine public schools, Sweden’s state institutions improved following the end of the near-monopoly on education, evidenced by the fact that most Swedish pupils still attend public school. Finnish schools — while all public — have

a great deal of autonomy in curriculum development and pedagogy. Both Finnish and Canadian schools rely heavily on professional teacher development programs. All of these countries’ schools best American ones on international assessments despite lower per pupil expenditures. I have not addressed the numerous social programs provided by Scandinavian countries that the U.S. does not offer to its citizens — these no doubt account for part of the high living standards enjoyed by Swedes, Finns and others. Unfortunately, developing such programs is not an option for America, where governments at all levels face gaping budget holes. We can, however, set a path for sustainable budgets and growth in the future, and following the Northern model may be the way to go.

CAC exhibit features Chinese artist by lacey palmer associate a&e editor

Many children learn to put ink on paper at a young age, but only a technically advanced artist could produce the work on display in the Paul Mesaros Gallery at the Creative Arts Center by ink and paper artist Zhang Youxian. The exhibit, entitled “Youxian Zhang: Essence of Ink,” features a variety of ink paintings on paper that represent different points throughout Youxian’s life. The artist’s approach to the human figure, landscape and calligraphy is displayed in the gallery. “From the very humble materials of ink and water and a brush and paper, the artist is able create an unlimited variety of tone and value, as well as an infinite range of lines,” said exhibit curator Robert Bridges. One of China’s most famous painters, Youxian specializes in figure and landscape painting. Youxian’s approach to the human figure is featured in

a series of five paintings. One work, “Untitled Nude,” shows a woman, seemingly alone and lounging on a bed. With curvy, short lines, the nude female figure is displayed with subtle gaps in the lines, a technique which forces the viewer to connect the figure on their own. The series shows a transition from somber to energetic and erotic. Landscape art is featured in the many vistas in the exhibit. Although it features the use of only black ink, the paintings of Niushou Mountain show great depth and shadow with short lines. “Old Man and the Mountain,” which is displayed in the entrance of the gallery, features a subtle but striking use of color compared to the black calligraphy and dark lines of the other paintings. Within the exhibit, there are also poems by Lu Kai written in calligraphy by Youxian. Youxian is a professor, supervisor for M.S. graduate students and director of the Fine Art College of Nan-

Zhang Youxian’s work hangs on the walls of the exhibit. jing Arts Institute in China and is known as the “Master of Er Oian Chinese Painting Studio.” Youxian has had solo exhibitions at Nanjing Normal University, Shanghai Arts Museum, Jiangsu Arts Museum and Xiamen Arts Institute. He has been a visiting professor at Xiamen Arts Institute and at China Central Academy of Fine Arts and has also exhibited his works in Germany. Additionally, Youxian is the author of numerous books about painting. At the Fine Art College of Nanjing Arts Institute, where Youxian teaches, the WVU

School of Art & Design has a summer painting program conducted by WVU painting professor Naijun Zhang, graduate of the institute. “The program provides an opportunity for students to study landscape painting in Chinese ink style and Nanjing and Tangka style with extensive traveling to major historical and artistic sites throughout China,” Bridges said. Youxian’s exhibit can be viewed at the Creative Arts Center’s Paul Mesaros gallery noon-9:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday. It is free and open to the public. daa&

Metalcore phenomenons Straight Line Stitch will headline a raucous bill of heavy music lined up Friday at 123 Pleasant Street with support acts Hovel, Sweet Life and Black Mass Confessions. With a revolving door of members, it’s hard for any band to churn out consistently quality material, but Tennessee natives Straight Line Stitch have managed to do just this quite well. The members of the band are dedicated tour veterans, whether they’re tearing up the festival circuit or playing your town’s local venue. They are true road warriors. Fronted by their versatile vocalist, Alexis Brown, the group delivers a knockout punch of a performance to the head of concertgoers with their adrenalinefueled brand of metalcore. Thundering palm mutes, machine-gun kick drumming and alternating passages of abrasive and melodic vocals will be the order of the day.

Expect a furiously paced sprint of mosh-worthy madness. It isn’t all just about bringing the heaviness with them, though. Like other purveyors of the genre, the band’s sound is fairly multi-faceted. With the power of the talented Alexis Brown’s pop-sensible vocals, sections of some songs end up sounding very much in the same vein as today’s radio rock. While Straight Line Stitch will undoubtedly send the crowd into a frenzy, there is plenty of music to get excited about before they even take the stage. Hovel is heavy in their own right, albeit in a much different way. Hailing from right here in Morgantown, they channel their inner Black Sabbath and supercharge it with modern metal ideas. The band sports a vast array of mammoth riffs and are unafraid to embrace the psychedelic. Their music has an undeniable groove that will be sure to get heads going up and down nonstop throughout their set. As somebody with firsthand

experience of their live performance, I can tell you they will not disappoint. Also hailing from the region are low-end-loaded punk-rock quartet Sweet Life. Amid their explosive guitar lines and soaring vocals, the band heavily utilizes interesting harmonies. Sweet Life combines these elements with ease, producing a very Queens-of-theStone-Age vibe. Last but not least is Black Mass Confession, a straightup-the-center, right-to-thepoint, honest-to-goodness metal band that takes many musical cues from Zakk Wylde’s legendary outfit, Black Label Society. Fans of Pantera and BLS will certainly be down with their groove-riffing sensibilities and deep, bellowing vocals. Doors to the show will open at 7 p.m., and things are scheduled to get underway at 8:30 p.m. Anyone older than 18 can purchase tickets online in advance for $10, and the price will jump to $12 at the door. daa&

Kennedy Center plans first major expansion WASHINGTON (AP) — The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is planning its first major expansion since it opened in 1971 as a “living memorial” to President John F. Kennedy, with new features including pavilions to house rehearsal halls and classrooms, a memorial garden and a floating stage on the Potomac River. The plans unveiled Tuesday call for a $100 million addition that would create a more lively outdoor space for gatherings and performances, with a pedestrian bridge connecting the center to the river. Architect Steven Holl drafted the initial concept and was hired from among several contenders. New marble pavilions— made from the same Italian Carrara marble as the original building’s walls—would rise from a new garden situated beside the center, and the pavilions would be connected underground. Most of the new facility, totaling about 60,000 square feet would be buried below the surface to help preserve the silhouette of the center’s primary building. Officials plan to raise private funds to build the project. To kick off the capital campaign, Kennedy Center Chairman David Rubenstein is giving $50 million to fund half the cost. The center aims to raise an additional $75 million to complete construction and establish a programming fund. Officials hope to open the new space in 2018. Kennedy Center President Michael Kaiser said the new pavilions would have windows to allow visitors to look in on rehearsals. “We’re giving a great improvement in public access to the Kennedy Center, to our art making,” Kaiser said. “It’s go-

ing to allow us to engage our audience in new and different ways.” The new space for rehearsals and education programs also is needed as the center has grown since 1971, Kaiser said. The center now includes a national arts education program and houses the Washington National Opera. In an interview, Holl said he is honored to work on a memorial to a president he saw inaugurated in 1961 and respected so much. “The Kennedy Center is a living memorial. It’s active, open to the public for performance, the arts, which he really believed in,” Holl said. Preliminary plans call for a memorial garden to honor Kennedy. It could include 46 Gingko trees to note the number of years Kennedy lived, 35 lavender rows for the 35th president, and a video wall for projections of performances from inside the Kennedy Center. “The idea really is that the landscape is activated,” a fusion of architecture and landscape features, Holl said. It could include a reflecting pool the length of the PT-109 boat that Lt. John Kennedy commanded during World War II. Holl envisions a deck along the pool made from the same mahogany wood as the boat. It could also include inscriptions of Kennedy’s words. The biggest challenge in the design concept could be winning approval for a performance stage that would float on the Potomac River, Holl said. Still, he said he has successfully negotiated with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for a past project that fell inside a flood plain. Open-air performances were once held on a floating river stage nearby at the Lin-

coln Memorial in the 1930s. The new expansion plans come more than 10 years after the Kennedy Center announced a major project to build two new buildings and a plaza over a nearby freeway to connect the center with the National Mall. The $650 million project was essentially canceled in 2005 after budget constraints forced Congress to eliminate $400 million in federal funding for the project. Kaiser envisioned a museum of the performing arts as part of that project. Now, he said, the center can plan future exhibition galleries in its main building as education programs and rehearsals move to the new facilities. Rubenstein, a businessman and a former vice chairman of New York City’s Lincoln Center, said the Kennedy Center has been limited by its building over the years. So he wanted to plan a realistic project that could be privately funded without relying on Congress. As the federal budget tightens, Rubenstein said more Americans should consider supporting nonprofit federal entities like the center. Rubenstein’s gift is the largest in the center’s history. Combined with previous gifts, he has donated $75 million, making him the center’s largest donor. Adding a garden and outdoor pavilions will make the center more inviting, Rubenstein said. “Rarely do people say in Washington, `I’m going to go over and spend a couple hours at the Kennedy Center,’” Rubenstein said, noting it’s often an evening destination for shows. But that will change, he said. “What we wanted to do was to remind people that this is a living memorial to a president.”

Head coach Mike Carey and the West Virginia women’s basketball team defeated No. 19 Oklahoma State Tuesday night in Stillwater, Okla.

West Virginia snaps losing streak, upsets No. 19 Oklahoma State 67-61 by cody schuler managing editor

After failing to do so in two consecutive losses, the West Virginia women’s basketball team held on to a halftime lead and cashed in a 67-61 victory on the road at No. 19 Oklahoma State Tuesday night. A 37-29 advantage at halftime left the Mountaineers feeling confident heading into halftime, and West Virginia was able to extend its lead to 13 points with 12:21

remaining in the game. The Cowgirls were able to close the deficit to only two points with 1:55 left in regulation, but a Christal Caldwell jump shot pushed the lead to four points with a minute to play, and the Mountaineers didn’t look back. Caldwell, a redshirt junior guard, led all players in scoring with 21 points. Sophomore forward Avree Fields was the only other player to notch doubledigit scoring for the Moun-

taineers, finishing with a career-high 19 points. Oklahoma State had four players finish with more than 10 points but still lost. Prior to last night, the Cowgirls had won 24 consecutive matchups with four players finishing with double-figure scoring. The Mountaineers (12-8, 4-5), avoided a four-game skid by winning in one of the country’s most hostile environments; West Virginia’s win is just the fifth victory in 77 home games for

Oklahoma State. West Virginia connected on 75 percent of freethrow attempts – a statistic that proved vital down the stretch. After Caldwell’s jumper extended the lead to four points, sophomore guard Linda Stepney sealed the game with a pair of clutch free-throws down the stretch. Oklahoma State junior guard Tiffany Bias led the country in assists heading into last night’s game, aver-

aging more than seven per contest. Bias was limited to four assists and committed 11 of Oklahoma State’s 22 turnovers. The Mountaineers were equally careless with the ball, committing 22 turnovers of their own in the game. However, West Virginia was able to make more out of the Cowgirls’ missteps, holding a 27-22 advantage on points from turnovers. West Virginia was able to grab the rebounding edge

35-29, with Caldwell’s seven rebounds pacing the Mountaineers. Redshirt senior center Ayana Dunning, the team’s leading rebounder, finished with 8 points and four rebounds. Oklahoma State’s largest lead of the game was one point – a difference the Cowgirls achieved only 26 seconds into the game. The Cowgirls also had a better shooting night than the Mountaineers, but West

Mountaineers optimistic with new head coach, new conference By Kevin Hooker Sports writer

The West Virginia baseball team has had its fair share of struggles in recent years. But a new conference and new head coach may be the change of scenery it needs to find success. The Mountaineers, under new head coach Randy Mazey, are widely considered an underdog in their inaugural season in the Big 12 Conference. Last season, the Big 12 had the fourthhighest winning percentage in the country, compared to the Big East Conference, which finished 10th. In the 2012 season, the Mountaineers strug-

gled in the Big East, winning just nine of their 27 in-conference games. The team finished with a 23-32 overall record, ultimately finishing second to last in the conference. Perhaps the biggest issue for the Mountaineers last season was their lack of defense, which gave up nearly seven runs per game. Under Mazey’s new management and a new conference, the Mountaineers feel confident about the future. “We got a good mix of returning guys who have a lot of experience,” Mazey said. “And we got some new guys who we feel like are going to help ... We feel pretty good about this team.” The baseball team cer-

tainly had a busy off season, signing close to 20 recruits during a four-week period. Despite their excitement, the Mountaineers know the road to success won’t come easily. “When you’re trying to build a program, good seasons are just a part of it,” Mazey said. “It’s academics; it’s travel; it’s how guys act on road trips. If you want to have excellence in your program, the wins and losses on the field are just a part of it.” The Texas Longhorns have long dominated the Big 12, winning the conference three of the last four seasons. “Whenever you’re the un-

It was just less than a year ago that West Virginia settled a multimillion-dollar lawsuit and finally reached an agreement to exit the Big East Conference and join the Big 12 Conference in nearly all sports effective last July. This move would have an enormous fiscal effect. In fact, once the Mountaineers

begin earning a full revenue share in the conference in 2016, they’ll almost certainly be earning more than $20 million a year just for being a resident member of the Big 12. That’s nearly three times the average compensation from revenue sharing in West Virginia’s former conference, the Big East, which means that after just a few years, the Mountaineers will undoubtedly make millions and millions more than they would have had they re-

mained in the slowly sinking Big East – which is, in fact, now closer to a three-ring circus than a Power Six collegiate athletic conference. And that doesn’t even factor in new marketing and media rights deals. For example, WVU just signed a new third-tier media rights deal with IMG that will reportedly bring in another $9 million a year to the university. Basically, the point I’m making is that West Virginia was extremely fortuitous to

make the conference transition, for fiscal reasons alone, if nothing else. Because, ironically, if the majority of the infamous, widespread conference realignments had occurred just a year later, I’m not sure the Mountaineers would be in the same situation they are now. In fact, I firmly believe that if Big 12 officials had another shot, they might go back and consider adding a different university altogether, because ultimately,

the Mountaineers’ Big 12 debut has been thoroughly underwhelming overall. And in the two biggest and most popular collegiate sports, football and men’s basketball, West Virginia has simply been downright atrocious. The WVU football team limped to a 7-6 final record capped off by dismal Pinstripe Bowl performance in January, and the men’s basketball team, currently sitting at 9-11 (2-5 Big 12), has been even more

disappointing. Now let’s conversely examine a Big East team that was originally rumored to get a Big 12 invite during last year’s rampant realignments but was basically overlooked as the conference ultimately selected TCU and the Mountaineers as its newest members instead. I’m talking about the Louisville Cardinals. Because in hindsight, they really do seem like a

Barrett posting impressive outings in freshman campaign By Robert Kreis Sports writer

Since head coach Tina Samara took over the West Virginia women’s tennis program two and a half years ago, she has been searching for the rock on which to build her team’s championship caliber foundation. Freshman Hailey Barrett, a five-star recruit, may be the keystone Samara needs. “She’s got the size. She’s got the desire. She’s really a great athlete,” Samara said. “She’s not missing anything other than experience. So as the years go, I think that’s what’s going to change her results. “As she plays in this environment longer and longer, she is going to improve more and more.” Barrett currently leads the Mountaineers with two wins

on the singles court. In West Virginia’s first win of the season last week against rival Marshall, a team the Mountaineers had not beaten since 1998, Barrett earned her first doubles win of the season, with partner Ikttesh Chahal, on West Virginia’s way to silencing the Thundering Herd. Barrett’s efforts against Marshall earned her Varsity Sports Report’s athlete of the week. “I was really surprised; I wasn’t expecting it at all,” Barrett said about the award. “We’re bringing some recognition to the tennis program here, and hopefully we can really get it going.” It was the “get the tennis program going” that Samara pitched to Barrett on the recruiting trail that convinced the highly prized Michigan native to continue her ten-

nis career at West Virginia. “Just talking to her the first time, I knew that she wanted to take this program places,” Barrett said. “She’s willing to do whatever it takes to get this program to the next level. “That was really exciting for me, and I wanted to be a part of it.” Barrett knows what she needs to do to take the program to the next level and has a vision of what her accomplishments will be four years from now when she graduates. “I want to go to the NCAA tournament. That’s always been a goal of mine. There’s a long way to go before I reach that, but I’m willing to do whatever it takes. “Definitely the NCAA and even a conference championship. The Big 12 is a really tough conference, and

we have a long road to getting to the top.” And the fact that Samara, a two-time all-American at the University of Georgia who won multiple national championships, knows what it takes to get to the top reinforced Barrett’s commitment to WVU even more. “Tina’s been there. She won NCAA championships. She knows what it takes,” Barrett said. “She knows what it takes to get there, and that’s one of my goals, so I really saw that she can help me do that.” Samara, of course, has full intentions of doing that. “I see her definitely playing in the NCAA tournament, the all-American tournament, and she’s fortunate where she can do it in singles and doubles.”


Kelly doesn’t know if hoax affected Te’o’s play SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o didn’t show any signs of being affected by the girlfriend hoax leading up to the BCS title game, but his play indicates it may have taken a toll, coach Brian Kelly said Tuesday. “Hindsight is 20-20. I didn’t think going into the game he was affected by it. But he didn’t play his best. Alabama had something to do with that, clearly. But I really don’t know,” Kelly said. “It’s a lot to weigh on the shoulders of somebody. I think we can make the leap that maybe it did. But I think Manti would know for sure.” Te’o said in an interview with ESPN after the news of the hoax broke that it did not affect his performance in the title game blowout. Kelly spoke to reporters Tuesday by conference call for the first time since the Irish were beaten 42-14 by Alabama in the BCS title game on Jan. 7. He said his interview the Philadelphia Eagles was mainly to get more information about coaching in the NFL, and his heart remains in college football. He’s also working on a contract extension with Notre Dame. Kelly said so far everything that has come out about the girlfriend hoax matches up with what Te’o told him when he called him on Dec. 26. Kelly contacted athletic director Jack Swarbrick immediately after Te’o told him what happened. “Obviously, we all heard the story. It just sounded so crazy that the first thing I wanted to make sure we did was get the right people on top of this immediately,” he said. “That was my first thought, to find out ‘What the heck is going on here.’” Te’o had described the girlfriend, who supposedly died of leukemia last fall, the love of his life. But Te’o got a call from the person posing as the girlfriend on Dec. 6, to say she hadn’t died. He continued to talk about her when questioned at the Heisman Trophy ceremony on Dec. 8. He told Kelly about the situation 18 days later. Te’o told ESPN on Jan. 18 that Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, a 22-year-old acquaintance who lives in California, contacted him Jan. 16 and confessed to the prank. Kelly said he wasn’t sure what to think initially. Despite all that’s happened, Kelly said he will still remember Te’o as one of the best teammates and leaders he’s been around in 22 years of coaching. “He showed the way how to be a great teammate. His work ethic, his commitment, all of those things,” he said. “He was special to coach and he did all the things that I think great players have to do on a dayto-day basis.” Kelly described his interview with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was more “intrigue than it was interest,” saying the Eagles contacted Swarbrick within a day of Andy Reid being fired on Dec. 31.

Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o, right, pats coach Brian Kelly on the back after Te’o left the game during the second half of an NCAA college football game. “My head said: ‘Let’s be more informed as it relates to the NFL. But my heart is in college football and with Notre Dame,” Kelly said. He said he wanted to learn about the day-to-day operation of NFL teams to see if it was something that might interest him. “I wanted to answer those because we’re going to win again next year and there’s probably going to be teams interested in me coaching in the NFL and I want to be able to tell them definitively that I want to coach college,” he said. Kelly, who agreed he wouldn’t talk to the Eagles until after the title game, said it wasn’t a problem

keeping the interview from being a distraction. “Because I wasn’t even certain I was going to interview,” he said. “It really wasn’t even on my radar.” Kelly said he’s been telling recruits that he was flattered by the attention from the NFL, but that he’s committed to Notre Dame. Kelly also said he feels good about negotiations under way with Swarbrick about a contract extension, saying negotiations began Dec. 6. “We both want the same thing, the long-term consistency of the program,” Kelly said. Kelly originally signed a five-year contract three

years ago at a reported $2.5 million a year and was given a two-year extension a year ago. Kelly said despite losing by 28 to Alabama, he’s still excited about the Notre Dame football program. He said Irish players understand how much more they need to improve. “Our workouts now in the offseason will be focused on getting back to that game,” he said. “As I told our team, we have some work to do. No question. But we know where we want to go. “We know that we’re capable of getting back to the national championship game, and we started that journey two weeks ago.”

Men’s basketball

Jayhawks impressed with Coliseum atmosphere By Nick Arthur

associate sports editor

West Virginia fans, particularly the rowdy student section, have always been known for their loud and passionate cheering inside Mountaineer venues when top-tier programs come to Morgantown. Until this point in the WVU men’s basketball season, though, only one ranked team found its way into the Coliseum. However, this all changed Monday night when No. 1 Kansas came to town, and the Mountaineer faithful didn’t disappoint while providing one of the best atmospheres in recent years. ”That’s the loudest I’ve probably ever seen it,” said West Virginia sophomore guard Juwan Staten. “I know I came as a recruit one time against Ohio State, and I saw it get pretty loud in here. But it’s just different playing. That’s the loudest I’ve seen it.” A crowd of 12,402 – the largest of the season – striped the arena with blue and gold and helped energize the Mountaineers on both ends of the floor. Despite the fact there were more than 1,500 empty seats, the visiting Jayhawks were very impressed by the raucous commotion caused by the ones surrounding the court. “I thought it was good. The students were great,” said Kansas head coach Bill Self. “I don’t know if they get crowds like this every game, but it’s a good home court without question.” Self and his Jayhawks are quite the credible source, considering their home games are housed inside arguably college basketball’s most storied arena – Allen Fieldhouse. “Pay heed all who enter beware of the Phog” is displayed above the tunnel where the visiting team enters the court. And visitors should approach with caution, since Allen Fieldhouse has had 191 consecutive

all the students down there low on one side. It’s kind of like Cameron (Indoor Stadium), at least from looking at it on TV,” he said. “I thought the atmosphere was very good.” Even though West Virginia’s upset attempt fell short, it could be argued Moun-

taineer Nation had an impact on the game. The Jayhawks turned the ball over 16 times and missed 16 free throws. The crowd stayed in the game despite the fact the home team fell down by as many as 15 points early in the first half. “I enjoyed it. I’m sure

everyone else on the team did. I like how the crowd is low and we get to see them and hear them,” said Kansas guard Travis Releford. “It’s fun when we go to opponents’ places and get the crowd into it then take over the game.” The Coliseum was full of energy Monday night and

helped provide a passionate atmosphere comparable to many of the most storied arenas in college basketball. But can an atmosphere of this caliber be maintained on a game-to-game basis?


“As many things that are against us – that’s just as many things that we can overcome,” said junior left fielder Matt Frazer. Regardless of their expectations, Mazey and the Mountaineers are keeping a positive outlook. “The coaching staff is awesome. The new conference is something I’m really looking forward to,” said senior pitcher Corey Walter. “I’m looking for a big step up in baseball here at WVU, for hopefully not just this year, but for years to come.” Another roadblock to the Mountaineers’ success will be travel. West Virginia will not only have to travel down south for in-conference games, but the majority of their home games will take place in Charleston, W.Va.

The Mountaineers will only play eight home games in Morgantown. “We (traveled) a lot last year,” Frazer said. “The only difference is our home games are away. It’s going to be fun.” Prior to joining the Mountaineers, Coach Mazey spent the last six seasons as a pitching coach for TCU. During his tenure, the team compiled a record of 269-104. “We’re excited to change the entire culture here,” Mazey said. “We’re off to a great start doing that.” West Virginia held its first official practice this week and will kick off its regular season at North Florida Feb. 15.

total football and men’s basketball conference games since joining the Big 12, Louisville won the 2012 Sugar Bowl (its second BCS victory in six years) and even briefly held the top ranking in all of college basketball this year. The Cardinals have since stumbled a bit on the hardwood since briefly becoming the No. 1 team in the entire country, but their current 17-4 record will still earn them a great seed in this year’s NCAA tournament in March. West Virginia, meanwhile, won’t be playing in

this year’s edition of March Madness at all. And to be completely honest, I don’t think its much of a stretch at this point to predict that the Mountaineers won’t even make the NIT. This doesn’t mean that West Virginia can’t turn things around in the years to come, but so far, the school just hasn’t proven the Big 12’s choice to add them as one of its two newest conference members in my opinion.

Oklahoma State was unable to cash in on four 3-point tries but did make 10-of-21 shots from the field. The Mountaineers defense buckled down in the final two minutes of the game and didn’t allow a Cowgirl field goal past the 1:55 mark.

Midway through conference play, the Mountaineers are one win away from reaching a .500 record in Big 12 contests. West Virginia won’t play again until Sunday when the Mountaineers host No. 20 Oklahoma.

We’re looking forward to surprising some people.” Wilson started all 55 games last season for the Mountaineers. He batted .271 with seven doubles, two triples and four home runs.

Granted, it would have been difficult to predict that the Cardinals would have fared so much better this year than the Mountaineers in both of the aforementioned sports in 20122013, but in the end, the results really aren’t even comparable.
