County breaks ground for ballpark BY Summer Ratcliff City Editor @SummerRatcliff
In April, the West Virginia state legislature passed legislation to allow the University Town Centre in Morgantown to become a sales tax increment financing (TIF) district. This legislation paved the way for a $96-million development project to begin in the small municipality of Granville, W.Va. The project includes a new exit off Interstate 79 between Westover and Star City, 1,400 acres for private development of retail and office space and a $16.2 million West Virginia University ballpark. WVU officials joined with
local and state dignitaries Thursday to break ground on the highly anticipated WVU ballpark. “The baseball stadium that we celebrate today, that will rise on this land, will generate significant economic benefits for the entire region,” said University President James P. Clements. “Families will come to this ballpark, including mine, and we will make memories that will last for a lifetime. Young kids will be inspired to play team sports and will gain the benefits that come from the value of learning teamwork and the value of hard work.” The stadium development is the culmination of almost two years of plan-
ning by WVU Athletic Director Oliver Luck with state senator Bob Beach and local developer Jason Donohue. The team worked diligently with state representatives to see the bill survived the long legislative process and was eventually approved. “I would like to thank all of our state representatives; we appreciate all of the work you have done this past session to make this a reality,” Luck said. “We took it into extra innings if you remember, but you kept your calm, stayed steady at the plate and you knocked it out of the park. We appreciate that very much.” Luck said without the vi-

FESTIVAL of IDEAS
TheRubberU to host Tailgate for Tatas BY Summer Ratcliff City Editor @SummerRatcliff
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, theRubberU will host a charity Tailgate for Tatas fundraiser before the West Virginia University home football game against Texas Tech. The event will be held Saturday at 9 a.m. in the Peking House parking lot. All donations received will go to benefit the Betty Puskar Breast Care Center, an American College of Radiology (ACR) designated Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. Vic Lombard, owner of theRubberU, said his team decided to create this special charity event as a way for students and alumni to join with family and friends in a safe, family-friendly environment while giving back. “I think we have all been affected or know someone who has been affected by breast cancer,” Lombard said. “Having the opportunity to help support a great organization and cause with this event is the least we could do. “Not everyone gets in-
volved in charity or fundraising, but with this event people can do their small part to make a difference and have a good time while doing it.” Donations will be accepted at the tailgate entrance, and anyone who donates more than $5 will receive pink theRubberU wristbands. Lombard said because many of his employees have been directly affected by breast cancer, the team is hoping to make an impact on the financial needs of breast cancer research. TheRubberU employee Domenico Di Pilato said she dealt with breast cancer firsthand when her godmother was diagnosed with breast cancer. “I remember when I was 12 and my mom was on the phone crying. My godmother, her best friend since high school, had been diagnosed with breast cancer,” Di Pilato said. “Doctors said she wasn’t going to make it. A few years later she finally beat it. “She never gave up hope, and that hope, that feeling,

The David C. Hardesty Jr. Festival of Ideas hosted speaker Jake Harriman in the Mountainlair Ballrooms Thursday. Harriman, a West Virginia native and former Marine, founded and is the CEO of Nuru International. Harriman is from Preston County, W.Va., and briefly attended West Virginia University to study mechanical engineering. He then went on to attend the Naval Academy. Harriman served seven and a half years in the Marine Corps as a platoon commander. After his years of service, he attended Stanford Graduate School of Business where he started Nuru International. The organization works to fight against extreme poverty through an innovative sustainability engine. Nuru focuses on working with local communities in building a specialized program around the community’s needs. They do by giving out business and agricultural loans and teaching skills, such as its

Morgantown Beauty College a cut above the rest by hilary kinney staff writer @dailyathenaeum
When people want or need a haircut, manicure, facial or massage, most are quick to book an appointment at a local salon. However, residents of Morgantown can find quality services at the Morgantown Beauty College. The Beauty College offers a full range of cosmetology services, including haircuts, manicures and pedicures, massages, hair coloring, perms and even makeup application.

Brenda Waller, instructor at the Morgantown Beauty College, said students of the school are passionate and dedicated to delivering quality services to customers. “You’re going to get students who really care about what they’re doing versus focusing on getting a paycheck. These girls really want to learn,” Waller said. “To them, it’s important to offer perfect service. They’re getting graded and everything they do is being scrutinized by an instructor.” Natoshia Phillips, a senior at the Beauty College, will be working in a salon

talked about different events people organized to promote and raise funds for Nuru, including a Nuru Week held by Fairmont High School, which raised money and awareness for the organization. The goal of Nuru, according to Harriman, is to make itself no longer needed. He said they want the communities they helped to be able to care for themselves after Nuru’s time with them. He said he believes if he still has his job in 20 years, he has failed. Harriman also talked about the challenges and rewards that come through Nuru.

“There are some days I just don’t want to get out of bed, so you have to have reasons for why you got into the fight,” he said. “(There are) moments like when I am walking through a village that used to be all mud huts and are now brick houses, which is inspiring to me.” Elizabeth Dearth, a second-year graduate student in forensic science, attended the event and said she found Harriman’s approach to ending extreme poverty interesting. “Everyone has their own approach, and I am going to look into it to see how this approach is working.
I think what he is doing is more intelligent,” Dearth said. “It is more applicable to the world now, because he isn’t trying to force one idea down people’s throats.” Brittany Yeager, a secondyear graduate student, said she found Nuru’s projected time frame realistic. “His approach is more partial. He doesn’t have a time line for things; he sees what is working and goes from there,” Yeager said. To learn more about Nuru International, visit http:// nuruinternational.org.

It’s really a ballpark that is going to belong to the people of Mon County.” The construction project has the potential to completely transform the western part of Monongalia County. The project is expected to generate 1,100 construction jobs and as many as 1,500 permanent jobs. While surrounded by

Ex-UK leader: Governments key in hunger fight
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair speaks during a panel discussion with Ritu Sharma, Co-Founder and President of Women Thrive Worldwide, and Howard G. Buffett, (not seen) Chairman and CEO of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, Thursday, in Des Moines, Iowa. Blair is partnering with Howard Buffett and the World Food Prize Foundation to send young entrepreneurs to Africa to work on hunger and poverty issues. DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The discussion Thursday at the World Food Prize symposium about hunger and poverty in developing nations turned largely from the controversies of global warming and genetically modified crops and focused on governments and their role in solving social ills. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and philanthropist Howard Buffett, son of billionaire investor Warren Buffett, discussed how they and the foundations they’ve created work in African nations and elsewhere to improve lives. They were joined by Ritu Sharma, president of Women Thrive Worldwide, a Washingtonbased advocacy group dedicated to women’s equality. Blair, who left office in 2007, started the Africa Governance Initiative five years ago to help improve governance in Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, Malawi and South Sudan. He said he has learned through his work that unless a country has a basic capacity at the center of government to make improvements, change will not occur. In some countries, it’s as important a need as offering reliable electricity, roads, and other basic infrastructure, he said. AGI sends teams of people to work alongside leadership in the under-
developed nations to help implement change. “If you’ve got a great agricultural program and you want to deliver it, unless you’ve got the basic capacity at the center of government to make the thing happen it doesn’t happen,” Blair said. He said he has found it surprising how little political leaders are educated about the programs and organizations available to help them but is encouraged that a new generation of leaders in Africa and elsewhere want to learn and accept assistance. “The surprising thing has been the lack of knowledge of what’s out there, and the most optimistic thing is there’s a new spirit and attitude out there that says, OK if you’ve got something to teach me, I’m willing to listen,” Blair said. Howard Buffett said among the bigger challenges are getting the knowledge, farming tools, seeds and techniques appropriate for each country into the hands of farmers and encouraging governments to let farmers make decisions that are best for their own land. “We have to empower farmers to make good decisions, and to make good decisions they can afford comes down to government policy in the end,” he said.
Blair said the World Food Prize Foundation’s focus on developing agriculture is essential for developing countries that need to feed growing populations. He said industrialized nations offering help also need to be far less bureaucratic and more creative about solutions they offer. Sharma said poverty is rooted in peoples’ lack of power to change their environment or circumstances. “You have to address the relative powerlessness of those you’re trying to help, and woman are the least powerful among them,” she said. She said she has witnessed men take away AP productive land after local women aided by or- Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair speaks during a panel discussion with Ritu Sharma, (not seen) Co-Founder and Presiganizations were suc- dent of Women Thrive Worldwide, and Howard G.

What are the power structures, what are the barriers that any farmer, male or female, is facing and address that at the same time,” said.

Pusha T to perform, promote local acts BY LACEY PALMER A&E EDITOR @LACEYPALMER
Pusha T, Lil Scrappy and Travis Porter will be performing in Morgantown Saturday night at Tunez & Cue on High Street, providing an evening full of some of the best hip-hop. The show will be put on by Blackout Bandits Entertainment in honor of Homecoming at West Virginia University. Also featured in the show will be local artists DJ Yemi, TMack and Ryan Skid. “Expect to leave a lot sweatier than you come,” Skid said. “It’s really going to be a night to remember. As far as events in Morgantown, this is right up there with Fallfest; it’s a phenomenal lineup.” Skid is a senior multidisciplinary studies student from Braxton County, W.Va., and has been busy making a name for himself in the hip-hop industry. With nearly 5,000 Twitter followers, Skid is creating quite a stir. Skid and his team, GEEKS (Guys Everyone Expects to Kill Sh--), look forward to sharing
the stage with big name artists Saturday. “It’s extremely exciting for my whole team and I to perform with these guys,” Skid said. “I grew up listening to Clipse (the hip-hop duo of Terrence ‘Pusha T’ Thornton and his brother Gene ‘No Malice’ Thornton) from back in the ‘Lord Willin’ days, all the way up through ‘Hell Hath No Fury’ and ‘Til The Casket Drops,’ which were huge inspirations for me. When you add that to his recent solo career with G.O.O.D Music, Pusha T is an idol of mine.” Aside from Skid, GEEKS consists of Rick “Spac” Brown, senior physics student and audio engineer/ live event technician; Jim “DJ Deazil” Thorpe, senior multidisciplinary studies student and deejay; Aaron Deininger, broadcast journalism graduate and videographer/creative director and Andrew “Harmony” Gardiner, senior business student and studio engineer/vocalist. Skid and his team also look forward to sharing the stage with Travis Porter. Skid said their rise to success during the
last few years is like a blueprint for performers in his position. “What’s most influential is how they’ve been able to do it all their own way and control their craft from (their) start until now,” Skid said. Skid said he and his team also aim to complete a similar feat and do things their own way. “We do everything in house, from the production to the recording, the mastering, the videos, the graphic design, the website, the promotion and the booking, and we do it a lot better than many others,” Skid said. “They (Travis Porter) have made a huge impact on southern rap and really influenced the modern Atlanta sound, which is something I aspire to do: develop a West Virginia sound.” Skid said Lil Scrappy’s longevity is admirable and what everyone in the industry wants to accomplish, yet so few do. “There’s a lot to be learned from all these guys,” Skid said. “It’s wild to think a kid from a West Virginia town of less than 500 that used to listen to these guys on the school bus is go-
ing to be sharing a stage with them. Life is crazy, and it’s a real honor.” Skid’s new mixtape, “Almost Heaven,” is currently in the works and will be out late 2013 or early 2014. The first single from the mixtape, “Snapchats From Your Main B---h,” dropped this week and is available for free download at https://soundcloud.com/ ryanskid. His past successes include three mixtapes and a radio hit song, “Three Up, Two Up,” which has been played regularly on a variety of local stations, including WVAQ. “A Day In The Real World” was named Best Indie Mixtape of 2012 by Mostly Junk Food, a Los Angeles-based music website, and last summer. Skid and his team traveled across the country to play a variety of shows. “I’ve just always strived to be honest with people through the music and be something that the state of West Virginia can be proud of,” Skid said. “When I decided I was going to do this, I made sure that I was going to do it for the right reasons.
“No matter where this career goes, as long as people can tell me, ‘Hey, this helped me get through this,’ or, ‘Hey, this reminds me of great times,’ then I’ve won.” Learn more about Ryan Skid by visiting www.ryanskid. com or his SoundCloud and WordPress, which are listed above. Find him on Twitter or Instagram with his handle @ ThatKidSkid. The Blackout Bandits Entertainment Homecoming Concert is set to begin at 7 p.m. Saturday at Tunez & Cue on High Street with a meet and greet for VIP ticketholders. Music will begin at 10 p.m. The show is open to guests of all ages. For advance tickets, call 347-415-3726 or visit www.eventbrite.com and search for “Pusha T.” Regular tickets are $40 and VIP tickets are $80. “Some of the biggest names in hip-hop are going to be in the building,” Skid said. “It’s going to be the perfect nightcap to Homecoming Weekend.” email@example.com

123 Pleasant Street celebrates 15-year anniversary BY NICK WESDOCK AND HUNTER HOMISTEK DA STAFF @DaIlyathenaeum
Morgantown’s 123 Pleasant Street has a long and storied history of music. Saturday night, the venue will celebrate the 15-year anniversary of its current name. Local band 63 Eyes will headline the show, playing with Phantom Six and J Marinelli. “All these guys have been playing the club since we opened up, and they have a lot of history,” said owner L.J. Giuliani. “I thought it was appropriate for those bands to represent everybody who has played over the last 15 years. Saturday night is a good rep-
resentation of the bands that have really made the tradition here ... Without the local scene, there isn’t a 123.” The bar, previously called the Underground Railroad, was purchased by Giuliani in 1998. He did extensive repairs to the condemned building, and it reopened as 123 Pleasant Street in October that year. “Before me, it seemed like every iteration lasted like four or five years, so once we passed five, it seemed like we hit a milestone,” Giuliani said. “Fifteen years later, I must be a masochist or something, but it’s been fun.” Bassist and vocalist for 63 Eyes Todd Burge said he en-
joys playing at 123 and feels comfortable there. “I think L.J. saw it as a way to have a celebration marking his 15 years ... which is amazing,” Burge said. “I’m used to that place just being there, and having probably played there 200 times ... I don’t take it for granted; every time I go back, I feel like it’s my musical home.” Burge and his bandmates have been playing together for more than 20 years, performing in countless shows at the venue during their hayday in the 1990s. “I see a lot of different venues, towns and music scenes, and what Morgantown has there in that one club is really unique,” Burge said. “L.J.
has had the space longer than any other club owner, so hats off to him and the people he’s decided to work with and the people who have volunteered there.” Aside from changes in the owner and a few much needed renovations, the venue has had the same atmosphere for decades. “The scene in Morgantown ... you’ve got U92; you’ve got a college newspaper that’s interested. It’s been that way since the ’80s,” Burge said. “The way you market and the way you sell is wildly different, but the support is always there, and I’d say it’s better than it ever has been.” Since the reopening, a
whole generation of students has come and gone at 123. Giuliani has tried to move with the times but looks at the club as an opportunity to keep underground music alive in Morgantown. “A lot of the students, now, were four or five years old when I took over,” Giuliani said. “So there are all these little, different things – how you market, how you promote – but I think, when it comes down to it, live music is live music. There’s been a movement where everything is a bit more mainstream than it was, but that’s why as a club, at 123, we’ve always tried to represent that underground scene.” Giuliani, the patrons of the
bar and even the building itself have shown an incredible ability to adapt throughout the years. They will continue to thrive as long as there is underground music in Morgantown. “Over the years, we’ve gone beyond just a music venue,” Giuliani said. “We always try to make sure there’s a choice at 123, whether it be the bands or the beer. For me, I’m grateful that the club has great people that have been working there forever. Right now there is still some unfinished work for us to do as a venue, and I look forward to continuing what we started.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Fifth annual women’s expo to host ‘ultimate shopping experience’ BY LACEY PALMER A&E EDITOR @LACEYPALMER
The fifth annual Women’s Extravaganza is set to take place Sunday at the Mylan Park Expo Center. The event, which features over 85 vendors, aims to give women an escape from their every day routine and allow them to shop and be pampered and entertained. According to Labeth Hall, event organizer and owner of PR Plus Entertainment, the event is the largest women’s expo in West Virginia. “We call it the ultimate
shopping experience because there’s everything women shop for – for their homes, their family, their kids, things to work outside in the garden; just everything women are interested in. Beauty, business, health – all that stuff is in one place at one time,” Hall said. Hall also puts on a hunting and fishing expo each year, but decided to put together this event for a cause close to her heart. “I actually started organizing the event in honor of my mother, who passed away from breast cancer,” Hall said. “We raised money for awareness
through a silent auction.” According to Hall, all proceeds from the silent auction go to breast cancer awareness and research. The event also features a fashion show, educational breast cancer seminars with guest doctors and entertainment, including Zumba and pole dancing for fitness. Bonnie’s Bus, a bus with medical staff and technology to perform mammograms, will also be at the expo. “All the medical machines required are inside the bus, so they can do mammograms on site for those who don’t have in-
surance,” Hall said. More than 1,500 women are expected to attend the event, and although they won’t turn men away, Hall emphasized that the event is geared toward women. “The goal is to give women a day to themselves because women are always multitasking – taking care of the kids, their husband, their house – so this is a day for women to actually get out of the house, be pampered, entertained and enjoy shopping with their friends,” Hall said. Hall said this year’s event will feature more vendors than it has in the past. Special offers, such as
free massages, makeovers, hairstyling and mini-manicures will also be offered. The grand prize given away at the end of the event is also cause for attendance. “The grand prize gift basket is valued at over $1,000, which includes a weekend at the Greenbrier Hotel, all kinds of beauty products, jewelry, things for your home and gift cards,” Hall said. Vendors such as Tuscan Sun Spa, Inner Life Yoga Studio, Premier Design Jewelry, Scentsy Wickless Candles, Mary Kay, Thirty One, Pure Romance, Natural Resilience, Origami
Owl, Vitamin World, Bellini Beauty Bar, Tanning World and the Morgantown Beauty College will be in attendance and have contributed to the grand prize basket, as have many others. The Mylan Park Expo Center is off exit 155 on I-79. The expo will take place 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission is $5 per person, and the first 50 women in attendance receive a free gift.

Exhibit depicts everyday life in Vietnam, Cambodia ‘Bangerz’ falls short of hype

Guests view the photographers’ work from a social work program in Southeast Asia during the Arts Walk in early October.

BY CORY SANCHEZ CORRESPONDENT @DAILYATHENAEUM
A Buddhist monk smoking and an unkempt man were the objects of two distinguishable photographs that revealed a little about Southeast Asian lifestyles at the Monongalia Arts Center’s exhibit. “I really enjoyed the picture of the monk smoking. I always believed monks to be people that were unordinary,” said John Morgan, a multidisciplinary studies student at West Virginia University. Morgan is referring to the photograph titled “Marlboro Monk.” The description says the Theravada monk was smoking outside of a pagoda, even though he carries a precept of not using items that contain toxins. The exhibit, “Heaven and Earth: Images of Southeast Asia,” held many photos that were similar to “Marlboro Monk” in depicting typical lives of people in Southeast Asia. Claudia Giannini and Neal Newfield completed the photography work during a WVU School of Social Works study abroad program. Both set out to document the lifestyle and people of Vietnam and Cambodia. However, as a social worker, Newfield also set out to focus on and capture the suffering and beauty everyday people experience. He said the reasoning behind the name for the exhibit had to do with these experiences. “We live with the earth beneath our feet and the heavens above our heads,”

Newfield said. “We live betwixt and between heaven and earth and make of this existence for both others and ourselves a heavenly and earthly experience of pleasures and pains.” As a visitor looks around the white room filled with photos and descriptions, he or she will notice price tags on the works and a television set up in the middle of the room. “All the proceeds from photographs are going to the Pacific Links Foundation to stop human trafficking in Vietnam,” said Clint Fisher, the curator for the Monongalia Arts Center. The documentary shown on the television gives visualizations of women who were at risk of being kidnapped or sold or those trying to return to a more serene life.
In order to restore stability of Southeast Asian women, the video called for a three-pronged approach through prevention by scholarship, reintegration of women who were trafficked and a community awareness of this issue. “The video was helpful in explaining steps that will be taken by Pacific Links to help people in Vietnam,” Morgan said. “The other documentary showed people who took part in trafficking in Thailand and Cambodia.” Andrew Barnes and Evan Moore provided the documentaries to the MAC. With their journalism backgrounds, they exposed the lack of acknowledgement toward everyday life in human trafficking. “The message is similar to what is being said from Newfield,” Morgan said.
Erin Irwin/THE DAILY ATHENAEUM
“The exhibit is set to reveal the ‘underbelly’ of the world.” Barnes and Moore are working together with Giannini and Newfield to create awareness regarding human trafficking and spread information about how the proceeds will be delivered to the Foundation – not the photographers. “I think it’s great,” Fisher said. “The authors are willing to sacrifice their work to give to this program.” Sponsored by the WVU School of Social Work, the exhibition will continue to run until Oct. 26.

With the incredible hype surrounding Miley Cyrus’ album, “Bangerz,” and the success of the singles “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball,” fans and critics alike were anxious for the album’s Oct. 4 release. However, even with collaborations with Britney Spears, French Montana and Nelly, the album falls flat. “Bangerz,” which was preceded by Cyrus’ salacious and very entertaining 2013 VMA performance, had a lot to live up to. “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball,” comparatively, were unlike anything else on the radio. However, after the release of “Bangerz,” many note the album lacks cohesion and is brimming with filler. The album is much like those shiny, plastic toys that rattle out of grocery store quarter machines: massproduced and won’t change your life. Naysayers and Smilers alike must concede: Cyrus knows shock factor. Take her 2013 VMA performance, where she demonstrated mastery in twerking on 36-yearold singer and married man Robin Thicke; even with the flack the performance generated, Cyrus still won. We’re interested. To follow, the video for Cyrus’s smash-hit, “Wrecking Ball,” featured the singer swinging in her birthday suit on a wrecking ball and
licking a sledgehammer. Then, at the peak of the hype surrounding the megastar, she released “Bangerz.” Gone forever is our beloved “Hannah Montana,” who brought us hits such as “Nobody’s Perfect” and “G.N.O.” With “Bangerz,” Cyrus’ vocal quality, which is naturally good, hits well below par. Many songs, such as “SMS (Bangerz)” and “Hands in the Air,” end up sounding like over-sexed Disney jingles. How e v e r, s t ro k e s of brilliance can be seen in songs such as “We Can’t Stop,” “Wrecking Ball” and “FU.” Cyrus’ attempt at a reinvented salacious image isn’t something new. We can’t forget stars, such as Madonna and Lady Gaga, who have used overtly sexual performances to break into the industry. In a vain attempt to shed her Disney image, Cyrus has made herself into a sexual object, with all tongue and little brain. To achieve true shock factor, Cyrus should don a turtleneck, put her tongue back into her mouth and be a positive influence to her mostly teen fan base. Twerking and jiving is great, but Cyrus does her talent and fans an injustice with “Bangerz” and the desperate persona she has created.

WVU ends homecoming week with a bang
Mel Moraes/THE DAILY ATHENAEUM
The 2013 Homecoming King and Queen candidates stand for a group photo. Back row, from left to right: Linden Nelson, Elayna Conard, Tyler Elvin, Chelsea Malone, Bryce Cumpston, Shawn Russman. Front row, from left to right: Walter Hardy, Dillon Tucker, Olivia Kinney, Erin Barthelmess. The next few days will be busy for West Virginia University students, faculty and staff. Friday at 6:30 p.m., the Homecoming parade will begin its march down High Street, featuring all 10 of the 2013 Homecoming candidates, the WVU Alumni Band and various other WVU organizations. Saturday is the first home
game for the Mountaineers since their loss to Baylor and the much-needed bye week. During halftime of that game, the 2013 Homecoming king and queen will be crowned, amid a flurry of other Homecoming activities and alumni events. And as usual, WVUp All Night will offer free movies, food and activities. Tonight’s theme is Casino
Night, with blackjack, roulette and poker. The movies will be “White House Down” and “Grown Ups 2.” You can also make your own street sign and fill up on potatoes at the mashed potato bar. If music is your thing and you want to get in the groove or just chill out after a long week, check out Tunez & Cue or 123 Pleasant Street.
Tunez and Cue will feature Pusha T, Travis Porter and Lil Scrappy, some of the biggest names in rap, to please all those who are interested in hip-hop and rap or just want to listen to some talented rappers and forget their cares. 123 Pleasant Street is celebrating its 15th anniversary this weekend and is planning a party that will
blow your socks off, with favorites who’ve been performing at the venue since it first opened its doors. And if absolutely none of these WVU or Morgantown-related events strike your fancy, a few good films are opening at the box offices. Visit the Carmike Theatre website at http://www. carmike.com for titles and times.
Even though we are coming off Fall Break, you probably spent the extra two days spending time with your family and catching up on cleaning and TV shows, so this weekend is a great opportunity to get involved and take advantage of everything the University and this town has to offer. email@example.com
Making the change: quit the complain game celeste lantz editor-in-chief @celestofacto
Why do people complain? At least once a day I send or receive a text griping about something, whether it be the fact that it’s raining, no one accommodates short people or students refuse to keep quiet in the library. But why? I never really feel better after I complain about one thing or another. I get angry for a minute or two, and then I settle down and
forget it ever happened. Or someone indulges me and I rant about it for 10 minutes, getting progressively more angry about this injustice I have to go through. And more often than not, these minor infractions don’t affect me in the long term. Unfortunately, for the things we complain about and can change, I – and certainly my peers – do nothing about it. For example, changes were made to the ticketing process for the WVU basketball games. There was a lot of backlash when the initial announcement was
made, but the SGA meetings were woefully unattended. Few people spoke up either in person or on social media. Naturally, the new system was put in place and will likely make the entire process more efficient, but my point is no one showed up to provide their input. This isn’t to say no one tried, but a vast majority of the WVU population went unheard. And this is the same for almost anything else. I hear students get into heated debates about the politicians in the government, but a percentage of them didn’t even go out to
vote. The roads and infrastructure in West Virginia are questionable at best, but how many of you can name who is in charge of the state? Do you even know who to contact about your concerns? I have a sneaking suspicion the entire purpose for creating Twitter was a public forum where users could post their frustrations in a clever 140 characters or less just to prove they were the wittiest and see how many other people would retweet them. Go ahead and look at your Twitter feed and count how many of the updates
are snarky, passive aggressive remarks about people who will never see them. This really all just comes down to two options: either stop complaining about everything or do something about it. This is something I need to work on, as well, so I’m not preaching from my high horse. Honestly though, unless that person who cut you off in traffic caused you to wreck your car, is it necessary to honk your horn? And unless you voted or have written a wellworded letter to your elected officials, you really have no right to nay-
say the decisions they’ve made for you. The thing we all need to stop doing, though, is complaining about things we absolutely cannot change. The debt ceiling is almost completely out of our hands. You’re going to have to take those GECs. However, I do understand old habits die hard. So take a moment to glare at the offending party, but let the comment pass right by. Unless that person is talking really loudly in the library and you can’t focus. Then maybe politely remind them where they are. firstname.lastname@example.org
Fall break falls short: how to beat the mid-semester blues Stephanie Messinger A&E Writer
It’s time again for students to regroup and start focusing on their school work after the Fall Break. The four-day weekend made the returning “Hump Day” Wednesday feel like a struggling Monday. The transition was tough as students were forced to get back into the swing of things. Students were a bit sluggish this week as they headed to their classes with their weekend fun still lingering. After the stress of midterms, the break was exactly what was needed, but it was too short and felt like only a tease to most students. “Living in New York and being seven hours away makes it hard to travel home
when we only have a couple days of break,” said Paige Gilligan, a senior WVU student. “It was a nice break from Morgantown. It’s like the stress of school immediately disappears as soon I hit the road home.” At halfway through fall semester and finishing up with midterms, some students used fall break as extra time to get caught up on work. For others, the procrastination carried into our break and the homework was left aside. “Unfortunately, my work took a backseat over break, but I caught up on sleep and got to hang out with my family I haven’t seen since we first came back,” said Isabelle Golovan, a sophomore WVU student. Now, students, is the time to get your life organized and get motivated. After being at home, hav-
ing some time off school and some home-cooked meals, hopefully students are now ready to work and get back on track. Make sure you’re not getting burned out, get plenty of sleep, attend those 8 a.m. classes and save downtown nightlife for the weekend. Keep your motivation and energy running high by taking advantage of activities around campus, and head to the Rec Center to release some endorphins. Don’t let the emerging cold weather keep you indoors, and grab a cup of coffee with an extra espresso shot to keep you going to your next class. Get into the Halloween spirit, as festivities will be starting soon. Local seasonal shops are filling up with costumes, decorations and other goodies ready for students to purchase.
Woodburn Hall overlooks the changing leaves of fall. Keep your school spirit running high this weekend at the noon game Saturday against Texas Tech. Don’t forget to claim your tickets, and hang out with friends during one of the last warmer weekends of the year.
Try going above and beyond next week. Make time to see your advisors, and stop in to see your professors during office hours. Do your best to be active on campus, and put yourself out there. It’s true you get
what you give, and you should take advantage of all aspects that WVU has to offer. Don’t get discouraged during this final stretch after a great break. Keep calm and carry on. email@example.com

HOROSCOPE BY JACQUELINE BIGAR BORN TODAY This year you often will have to decide between doing what you think will work and doing what you want to do. You will discover that your emotional voice has more power, as it reflects an inner depth and caring. If you are single, relating could be far from easy. You could experiment with being docile, verbal, non-combative, etc. If you are attached, as a couple, you often are on opposite ends of an issue. Try to reach a compromise so that each of you will have a chance to make a final decision. ARIES (MARCH 20-APRIL 19) HHHH You are a sign that is likely to feel the eclipse today. In any case, you most definitely will if you were born around April 18. For many of
you, it could create a sudden change in the next month – for the better. Do not resist that which you cannot change. Tonight: Do your thing. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) HHH You will be full of get-up-and-go today, but there seems to be a problem that is subconscious. Keep searching within yourself to see if there is an unaddressed issue. Take your time before making any statements or commitments now. Tonight: Get some extra R and R. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) HHH You want to have more fun in your life. In pursuit of this goal, a friend could be distancing him- or herself more quickly than you realize. This person might not want to take part in this adventure. Be open to different types of entertainment with this person. Tonight: TGIF!
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) HH Pressure keeps building between a personal matter and a financial or business issue. You do not need to make a choice right now; you simply need to prioritize and go with the flow. Nothing will be resolved today. Just hang in there or call it an early day. Tonight: A force to behold. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) HHH Follow your gut today. Emotions could run high, and a true representation of where you are coming from can be understood only from this level. Take a walk, listen to music and/or detach from your daily routine with another preferred method. Tonight: Relax to good music. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) HHHH Dealing with investment sources might put you in a tizzy. Right now, don’t do anything with today’s active
eclipse. You only will be causing yourself a problem. Give yourself at least a week. Tonight: Intrigue a loved one with a seductive clue or a statement of intention. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) HHHH An eclipse in your opposite sign could find you exhausted and tired. What might be best is not to get into the moment, and detach from it instead. Others are even more volatile than usual. Strap on your seat belt. Tonight: Say “yes” to an innocuous invitation. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) HHH Be ready for a change in your daily schedule. A situation could evolve that you cannot and should not say “no” to. Don’t be surprised if others express their disappointment in not getting together. Be flattered, and don’t become triggered. Tonight:
Take care of yourself first. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) HHH Your creativity flourishes, entertains others and permits unusual ideas to pop up. Emotionally, you might want to be contrary or controlling. Understand that you will not get anywhere with that type of behavior. Tonight: Be naughty and nice. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) HHH You could be slightly more challenging than you think. You are determined to have a domestic situation go a certain way. The other person involved is determined to have things his or her way. Let go of any musthaves for now. Tonight: Others need your time and attention. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) HHH You actually might use too many words in an explanation. When you
present something in this way, it makes it seem as if you are feeling guilty or covering up. In your case, neither assumption would be right. Remember, the less said, the better. Tonight: Deep into a conversation. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) HHHH If you must take a money risk, make it small. That way, if you lose, there will be no lasting pain. You could encounter a difficulty with a friend or loved one about a financial situation. Why let it happen? Tonight: Play the role of peacekeeper. Keep your wallet hidden.

Fright Farm provides nearby, frightening Halloween experience the Haunted Hayride. Hopping on the back of a tractor, visitors get pulled through the twisting terrain of Rich Farms. This part of the night is definitely the least frightening, and the biggest scare comes from a man chasing the tractor with a chainsaw. “The Hayride was boring, and my butt fell asleep,” said Chloe Blake, a communications student at West Virginia University. “But, then, when I got to the maze, I was stuck in it for like 30 minutes. It was well worth the $25.” After getting off the Hayride, patrons might be worried their money has gone to waste. But have no fear,
Jake Jarvis A&E WRITER @dailyathenaeum
If you’re looking for a scare, some laughs and a great time with friends, then check out Fright Farm located at the Rich Farms in Smithfield, Pa. Celebrating their 24th year, Fright Farm has definitely pulled out all the stops. General admission, which is only $25, grants patrons access to three different attractions: the Haunted Hayride, the Haunted Mansion and the Terror Maze. The night begins with
the Haunted Mansion picks up the slack. Every year the Haunted Mansion has a theme. This year is “A Victorian Nightmare.” Inside the mansion, gaudy furniture and creepy ghoulies dot the path. “Throughout the year, we go to different seminars and exhibitions to improve Fright Farm,” said Tom Rich, one of three brothers who own and operate the farm. “Other haunted house attractions just use the same theme, but we try to keep it different.” Innovation is definitely a key to the success of Fright Farm, but another important factor is how much Fright Farm offers.
“It’s a good value with over an hour of activity,” Rich said. “And plus, we have live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights while people wait for it to begin.” Upcoming performers this season include Michael Christopher, The Stickers, Beyond Daylight, The Existential Gentlemen, The Lucky Stripes, Hey Compadre and Aristotle Jones and the Like Minds. After visiting many haunted houses throughout my life, I have a pretty good idea about where people will jump out and scare me. There were, however, multiple times when even I was surprised.
“Expect enjoyment,” Rich said. “Our goal isn’t to be too gory or too scary; it’s to make people walk away from the night having a good laugh and few jumps.” It’s easy to see with the value, the fun and the innovation why Fright Farm is a top choice for celebrating Halloween. “Fright Farm has become a tradition for a lot of people to come to year after year,” Rich said. “My boyfriend and I went last year, and we had to come back this year,” said Jessica Stanley, a Uniontown resident. “This is definitely going to be a Halloween tradition.”
On Thursdays, Fright Farm hosts a charity night during which patrons receive a $5 discount on general admission for bringing in items to donate to the Fayette County Commission or to Friends of Animals. “I’d especially like to thank Cheryl Frey, King Smith and Gary Jordan for all of their help,” Rich said. “Without them, none of this would be possible.” Fright Farm is open Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday 7-10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday until midnight. firstname.lastname@example.org

Five costume ideas for those still searching

Maria Solano A&E WRITER @Dailyathenaeum
In this day and age, who has time to find the perfect Halloween costume? Definitely not a college student. Although it might be at the top of their list of things they want to do, it is difficult to find leisure time to actually do it. Finding time is only half the battle though; figuring out what to be for Halloween might be the toughest part. You could take the easy way out and write, “Error 404: Costume not found,” on a white Tshirt and call it a day, but where is the fun in that? You could draw whiskers on your face and tell everyone you are a cat or a mouse or a seal. The possibilities are endless. Perhaps you were thinking about being a witch or a vampire. However, these costumes have been overdone throughout the years. College is about creativity, imagination and low budget, so here are some costume ideas and how to pull them off without spending a lot of money. Option 1: “50 Shades of Grey” This book recently gained a lot of attention and has started to become even more popular since the news about the upcoming movie. To execute this costume, simply go to your nearest home improvement store and take tons of grey paint swatches. They are free, so money is no issue, and the stores provide swatches for every shade of grey you can imagine. Tape these to a shirt and you are good
to go. Option 2: “Nudist on strike” This is a fairly simple costume idea. Wear your normal clothes and carry a sign specifying that you are a nudist on strike. Too easy? If you think so, then you can always show your rebellion against your parents’ values and go as a nudist. Option 3: “A ceiling fan” Do not be fooled by this costume. I would not allow you to go out onto the streets on Halloween night dressed as an actual ceiling fan. This costume is one of my personal favorites. Wear a shirt saying, “GO CEILING! GO!” and write “#1” on your cheeks. Own a foam finger? Take that with you and cheer on the ceiling as you go about your night, showing the world just how much you love each and every ceiling. Option 4: “Minion” Simple and to the point; this costume only requires a yellow shirt, overalls and some goggles. It is cute, affordable and self-explanatory. Option 5: “Ninja” Although this is slightly generic, it is the perfect costume for someone who does not want to spend a lot of money on Halloween. All you have to do is wear all black and bring some kind of fake weapon with you – nunchucks, a sword, a knife – and just poke everyone with it all night while jumping around a bit. Whatever you choose to be this Halloween, just try to make it original. Do not be scared to stand out and be unique. firstname.lastname@example.org

West Virginia looks to avenge 2012 upset against No. 16 Texas Tech Red Raiders at home Saturday by doug walp sports writer @dailyathenaeum
After a bye week, the West Virginia Mountaineers return to action Saturday, as they welcome an undefeated No. 16 Texas Tech team to Morgantown for the very first time. Both teams have won a game in the short history between the now conference opponents, with the Red Raiders routing the Mountaineers 49-14 in Lubbock in the 2012 season during the teams’ first ever conference matchup. For West Virginia, the game against Texas Tech is the fifth consecutive contest against an opponent that has been ranked in the top 25 at some point during this
season and is the fourth undefeated Big 12 opponent they’ve faced in four total conference games. “The challenge is large,” said West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen. “But I can assure you, we are up for the challenge and will put our best foot forward, not only in preparation but also on game day Saturday. I do think our team will be prepared for what Texas Tech brings to the table.” West Virginia is 21-3 in its last 24 games following a bye, and the Mountaineers have also followed every loss with a win so far this season. WVU is also 3-0 at home this season, and this weekend is Homecoming in Morgantown. “I would expect a very festive atmosphere in Mor-
gantown on Saturday,” Holgorsen said. The Mountaineers are 4931-3 all-time in homecoming games and are 2-0 since Holgorsen arrived. It’s the first time the Red Raiders have played a regular season game on the East Coast in 10 years. But Texas Tech is the first team in the conference that’s already bowl eligible in 2013. The Red Raiders are 6-0 for the first time since 2008 and just the sixth time total in school history. With the undefeated start, first-year head coach Kliff Kingsbury is now the first coach in Texas Tech history to win his first six games. “(Kingsbury) brings something different to the table from an energy standpoint,” Holgorsen said. “We
are both cut from the same cloth. So, we are going to know what they do offensively. Obviously, the challenge is to stop it. They play very up-tempo and very high energy.” The Red Raiders have indeed been proficient offensively so far, as they come into Saturday’s contest averaging 544 yards of total offense per game, good for No. 8 in the country. Texas Tech is also No. 3 in the nation in passing yards per game, averaging just under 409 yards a contest. Conversely, the Mountaineers have struggled on offense, averaging just 24 points per game and 245 yards per game through the air. “We know we’re capable,” said West Virginia offensive
coordinator Shannon Dawson. “Our job as coaches is to stay positive. Stay positive and stay the course.” WVU’s defense had been showing signs of drastic improvement since 2012 until the Baylor game, in which it surrendered a staggering 73 points. But that game is in the rearview mirror as far as West Virginia’s players and coaches are concerned. Their focus now is finding some way to stop Texas Tech tight end Jace Amaro, who torched the Mountaineers in the rout in Lubbock in 2012 and is doing even bigger things in 2013. Amaro had five catches for 156 yards and a touchdown in 2012’s matchup with WVU, and so far this season Amaro leads all Texas
Tech receivers with 606 receiving yards, making the junior tight end the No. 19 best receiver in the country. “He bodies up on you,” said West Virginia defensive coordinator Keith Patterson. “So even though you may have good position, he’s still able to go up over the top with you.” The Mountaineers get their chance to bottle up Amaro and finally deal out some payback from 2012’s contest this Saturday at noon at Milan Puskar Stadium. The game will be on Fox Sports 1. For those willing to get up a little earlier, Fox Sports 1 will be hosting their new pregame/tailgate show at the WVU Coliseum at 10 a.m. email@example.com
Excitement running high for Mazey, WVU baseball by greg madia multimedia editor @dailyathenaeum
West Virginia baseball head coach Randy Mazey made an immediate impact in his first season, leading the program to its first winning season in four years. Mazey changed the culture during the 2013 season as WVU moved into the Big 12 Conference. After finishing tied for No. 3 in the league, it was clear Mazey was the right man for the job. When Athletic Director Oliver Luck offered Mazey the job, one of the selling points Luck had for Mazey was the University was going to try to build a new baseball facility.
To Mazey, Luck’s idea to reenergize a baseball program was encouraging. “I don’t want to have to say it was a necessity to have a better facility than we had, but it was a necessity to have a better facility than we had,” Mazey said. Mazey, Luck and WVU President James P. Clements broke ground on WVU’s new athletic facility Thursday. The facility is a part of the University Town Centre’s phase three construction in Granville. For the West Virginia skipper, it was important to be a part of this. “It’s kind of real now. It’s been, to this point, drawings and artist renderings,” Mazey said. “It’s easy to see when
we bring somebody up here, the setting sells itself. This is going to be one of the prettiest settings in all of college baseball.” West Virginia’s baseball facility, which is expected to be a state-of-the-art ballpark, will sit at the same level as and above some of the other Big 12 venues. This will give Mazey and his staff the ability to compete on a high level not only from game to game, but on the recruiting circuit, as well. “With the move to the Big 12, we just couldn’t compete; we couldn’t recruit based on what we had from a fan standpoint. So hopefully this will really propel the interest in WVU baseball,” Mazey

said. The new stadium will open in time for the 2015 baseball season. West Virginia will play three of four Big 12 Series this season, including one against Texas, at Hawley Field. “We have all the talk in town about Big 12 baseball, yet no one has seen a Big 12 game here unless people have driven to Charleston,” Mazey said. “So I’m excited for the people of Morgantown to see us play here.”
And since WVU returns a number of key members from 2012’s squad in Jacob Rice, Ryan McBroom and 2013 Big 12 Pitcher of the Year Harrison Musgrave, Mazey has revved up the nonconference slate. This year, WVU will be tested during a spring break trip that includes games on the road at UC Riverside, Sacramento State, UNLV and Cal State Northridge. Additionally, WVU will take on Virginia Tech in Princeton, W.Va., at Hun-
nicutt Field and make trips to both San Diego State and Houston. The bottom line is – looking at the upgraded facility, season schedule and team talent – Mazey seems to be excited for just about everything. “I just don’t think the excitement around WVU baseball has ever been as high as it is now, so we’ll try to keep that going as long as we can,” Mazey said.

No. 6 West Virginia takes on Jayhawks by meghan carr sports writer @dailyathenaeum
The No. 6 West Virginia University women’s soccer team (11-2-2, 5-0 Big 12) is celebrating Senior Night as they compete against Kansas (5-7-2) tonight at 7 at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium. Before the match begins, midfielder Caroline Szwed, goalkeeper Sara Keane, forward Frances Silva and midfielder Kara Blosser will be honored for what their accomplishments in their soccer careers at WVU. “I think there is a lot of Mountaineer pride that needs to come out and show up and support what these seniors have done for this program,” said head coach Nikki Izzo-Brown. “These
girls are pretty special. How many rings do these girls have? I think that says a lot about what these seniors have done and what they’ve invested.” Since it is also alumni weekend at WVU, former Mountaineers will be in attendance and recognized at halftime. Even though Izzo-Brown admits this will be an emotional night, she still wants her Mountaineers focused for the task at hand – winning another game. “I think we’re just trying to take one game at a time and not look over anything. I’m sure it goes through their mind,” Izzo Brown said. “I’m sure being ranked No. 6 in the country goes through their minds, but we need to worry about going
out and playing 90 minutes on Friday.” In 2012, the Mountaineers beat Kansas 1-0 in Lawrence, Kan. The Jayhawks are coming into this match without a win in the Big 12 this season. Silva said she considers playing her home state on the night of her last home match a little ironic. “It’s kind of like poetic justice to play your home team. It’s kind of the perfect way to go out. (I’m) Definitely emotional and a little in denial that it’s happening, but it’s exciting to play Kansas (it’s) another chance to win and get closer to another Big 12 title.” Silva and Keane are the last seniors standing after two unfortunate injuries took Szwed and Blosser out of the game. Izzo-Brown said
this is the only group of seniors she’s had that hasn’t played the full four years together. “I would definitely say that I’ve never had a senior class that didn’t go in four years or the bulk of it,” she said. I think each one of them has a great story and has faced different adversities to get here, and each one has sacrificed a lot for the Gold and Blue. It’s a very unique class.” Keane missed her freshman and sophomore year due to being redshirted. Szwed missed 2012 and this season up to this point. Blosser played her freshman year at N.C. State and was redshirted her sophomore year. Silva is the only senior to play out her entire four years.
Silva said this will be an emotional night for her and the rest of the seniors. “It’s been a really good experience to play with them,” she said. “We’re all really close because obviously we’ve been through a lot together. It’s exciting to go out there one more time with them. I obviously wish Caroline and Kara could play with us, but (it’s) still exciting to be honored with them. Like I said, they’re my best friends.” Tonight will also be dollar night with all tickets, hot dogs, popcorn and CocaColas available for $1. Additionally, glow sticks will be handed out to the first 500 fans inside the gate. Students, as always, get in free with a valid student ID. firstname.lastname@example.org
WVU plays Georgia State at home Saturday
DOYLE MAURER/THE DAILY ATHENAEUM
Sophomore forward Ryan Cain takes a shot against Northern Illinois Oct. 5.
by joe mitchin sports writer @dailyathenaeum
Saturday night brings another opportunity for the West Virginia men’s soccer team to even their record this season when the squad hosts visiting Georgia State in a nonconference matchup. The Mountaineers have won just two of the past eight games. WVU currently sits at 5-6-2 following a 1-1 draw against High Point Tuesday night at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium. West Virginia struggled to find the back of the net recently, scoring just one goal in the past two games despite firing 43 shots. In fact, five of the Mountaineers’ six losses
have come by just a single goal. “Ever y team goes through these phases,” said defender Craig Stephens. “It’s going to click; it’ll happen. We just have to keep believing and having faith and keep on with the course.” Stephens scored WVU’s only goal against High Point, which tied the match just three minutes after the Mountaineers gave up the first goal of the evening. The two sides played two overtime periods, but no winner surfaced and a draw was issued. With the offensive inefficiencies come better defensive play for the Mountaineers. It has been five matches since WVU al-
lowed multiple goals in a single contest, and the Mountaineers have given up just four total goals in the same time span. West Virginia head coach Marlon LeBlanc said he credits the improvement to the tactical changes the team has made this season. “We’ve changed our shape a little bit from when he started the year,” LeBlanc said. “We still conceded three goals over the last three games. However, the opportunities are down significantly. We’ve held a lot more possession.” West Virginia will entertain Georgia State, another non-league member Saturday. The Panthers are 5-6-1 this season. GSU is led by Stephen McGill, who has
scored three times this season. The lead assist man is Aaron Jones, who has helped on four goals this season. Saturday evening marks the first time the two schools meet on the soccer pitch. Georgia State was on a six-match winning streak before it snapped in a 5-1 loss to Central Florida. The team held its own against some top talent in the country this season, earning a draw against an undefeated Washington team and beating UNC-Greensboro, which was ranked earlier in 2013. The Mountaineers continue to be led by junior Andy Bevin and sophomore Majed Osman. Bevin leads the team and Mid-
American Conference with six goals and 18 points while Osman has notched five goals and a total of 15 points this season. In the last eight games, however, the two have combined for only four goals, adding to the offensive frustration. Still, LeBlanc said he is choosing to keep his focus on the defensive side of the ball. “We can win one of these games eventually by a shutout,” LeBlanc said. “We shouldn’t have to score two, three, four, five goals every time to win games.” West Virginia and Georgia State will meet up Saturday at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
Tennis travels to play in USTA/ITA Regionals by anthony pecoraro sports writer @dailyathenaeum
The West Virginia University women’s tennis team will be competing in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Atlantic Regional in Charlottesville, Va., at the University of Virginia from Friday-Monday.
This will be the Mountaineers’ third tournament of the season. Coming away with some victories in their second tournament, the Akron Invite, head coach Miha Lisac expects progress to continue to the next level as the season moves along. “Things continued to go well, and I think that
we have shown progress in both singles and doubles,” Lisac said. “I think this tournament was a good challenge and a good step forward for us.” As WVU enters its third tournament, the team will continue to use the mentality of building on what they have done so far and to play better as the Mountaineers
strive to keep reaching the highest level. “This weekend provides us with another opportunity to continue the process of getting better,” Lisac said. The Mountaineers will be competing against several schools in the Atlantic Region, including VCU, Virginia and William & Mary.
The Atlantic Regional will feature eight of the ITA’s preseason top-125 singles and three doubles pairings. Julia Elbaba of Virginia is No. 9 in the country, while the region’s top doubles duo of Maria Belaya and Jeltje Loomans of William & Mary are No.

KEVIN HOOKER SPORTS WRITER @DAILYATHENAEUM
Luck, Playoff Committee up to difficult task West Virginia Athletic Director Oliver Luck was officially announced as a member of the group that will help select the four football teams to compete in the first ever playoff Wednesday. Bill Hancock, executive director of the College Football Playoff, chose 13 people to help oversee the new playoff, which will take effect at the end of the 2014 season. The Bowl Championship Series started in 1998 and used a voting system to help determine the teams in college football’s big BCS games. However, fans have a notable aversion to the process, because it doesn’t determine a true winner, like in college basketball’s “March Madness.” With this new playoff system, Luck and 12 other members will determine the top four teams, who will then battle it out for the ultimate college football champion. “I think this playoff system is a significant improvement over the BCS,” Luck said. “I have 100 percent confidence in this group.” The selection committee members have roughly 230 combined years of experience in college football. The group includes 10 people who played college football, three members of the College Football Hall of Fame, three former head coaches and five current athletic directors, including Pat Haden from the University of Southern California, Barry Alvarez from the University of Wisconsin, Dan Radakovich from Clemson University and Tom Osborne of the University of Nebraska. “We wanted people of the highest integrity for this committee, and we got them,” Hancock said. “They will no doubt have one of the hardest jobs in sports. But their skills and wide variety of experiences from (being) coaches and athletes to university leaders and journalists will ensure that they are successful.” Luck, a former NFL quarterback and father of current Indianapolis Colts signal-caller Andrew Luck, has served as AD at WVU, his alma mater, since 2010. As a Mountaineer, Luck threw 43 touchdowns as the starter from 1979-81. His 5,765 career passing yards rank No. 4 on the all-time school list, and he still ranks in the top 10 in nearly every career passing category. Before coming to WVU, Luck was the CEO of NFL Europe, president of the Houston Dynamo of Major League Soccer team and CEO of Houston Sports Authority, where he oversaw the construction of Minute Maid Park and Reliant Stadium. In 2012, Luck was a vocal proponent of a playoff system before it was implemented. At a time when the popular idea was a conference champions-only model, Luck supported the idea of a four-team playoff, regardless of conference. “In my mind, I think the four best teams have to be the four best teams,” he said. “That’s the American way.” While the playoff system will be popular among fans and players, one big potential problem could arise. Athletic directors and administrators serving on the committee, like Luck, will be undoubtedly criticized for any biases. While this is ultimately unavoidable, what if Luck votes for two or three Big 12 Conference teams? The members may face some credibility questions throughout the process. However, Luck has plenty of experience to go with his extraordinarily bright mind. He, along with the other 12, will make great contributions to what surely will be a difficult job. email@example.com

Mountaineers return to Big 12 play, face Kansas
WYTHE WOODS/THE DAILY ATHENAEUM
Members of the West Virginia volleyball team celebrate during a win over Robert Morris Wednesday night.
by jon fehrens sports writer @dailyathenaeum
Saturday’s match for the West Virginia volleyball team brings No. 23 Kansas (14-4, 4-1 Big 12) into the WVU Coliseum for a Big 12 Conference match. The Mountaineers are struggling in conference play, as they dropped their last two conference matches to Baylor and Iowa State; they will look to end the skid against the Jayhawks. In order to end the conference drought, WVU will have to upset a Kansas team that took six of seven
sets from them in 2012. Saturday’s match will continue a long road trip for the Jayhawks, who travel into Morgantown from Lubbock, Texas. Outside hitter Hannah Sackett will try to lead her team to an upset in the Coliseum by continuing her historical stretch of play. Against Robert Morris Wednesday night, Sackett recorded 13 kills for a .500 hitting percentage, which led all players all the night. Sackett has now reached double-digit kills in eight straight matches, which is the longest streak for a West Virginia player since 2007.
The Somers, Mont., native is only three games away from tying the school record of 11 straight games. Abby Tevis recorded 11 straight games with doubledigit kills stretching from the end of the 2006 season to the start of the 2007 season. “We can’t wait. We are really excited to play and get back in the gym,” Sackett said. “We are working on our own strengths for Kansas.” Sackett’s fellow outside hitter Jordan Anderson will continue to play in a cast against the Jayhawks, but her injury hasn’t hin-
dered her ability to play. The standout freshman still leads the team in kills and added seven kills to her total 208 against the Colonials. WVU (16-4, 2-3 Big 12) comes into the match after sweeping its ninth opponent of the season. The team only had eight total wins in the 2012 season. “It’s a completely different year and a completely different season,” said libero Anna Panagiotakopoulos. “We just wanted to take care of business and worry about what we need to worry about on our side of the net to get ready for Saturday.”
P a n a g i o t a k o p o u l o s’ words regarding a completely different team continue to ring true as the season carries on. This year’s team had the best start to a season since 1987 and have already doubled the amount of wins of last year’s squad. They have recorded the first two Big 12 Conference wins in program history. Head coach Jill Kramer will have a healthy team at her disposal against the Jayhawks. Senior middle blocker Arielle Allen saw solid minutes against Robert Morris, and Kramer began cycling freshmen Haley
Roe and Hannah Shreve into the mix. The Jayhawks feature a stark one-two combo with 6-foot-2 outside hitter Sara McClinton and setter Erin McNorton. McClinton leads her team in kills with 243, while McNorton has dished out 886 assists. The McClinton and McNorton combination was good enough to sweep Texas Tech Wednesday night. Saturday’s match will be the Mountaineers’ last before their nationally televised match against No. 3 Texas Wednesday. email@example.com
Cardinals need strong effort from Wacha to move on ST. LOUIS (AP) — For four straight starts, Michael Wacha has been all but untouchable and appeared totally oblivious to the stakes. The St. Louis Cardinals need one more just like that from the pressure-proof rookie to get to the World Series for the second time in three years. Wacha outpitched NL Cy Young front-runner Clayton Kershaw in Game 2 and the Cardinals won 1-0 on an unearned run to take a 2-0 series lead. They’re matched again in Game 6 Friday night, the precocious righthander and the lefty who’d be at the top of anyone’s list to work a must-win. This time, the Cardinals lead the Los Angeles Dodg-
ers 3-2. “I just expect Michael to go out and do what he’s done, just like the rest of our guys,” manager Mike Matheny said. “Stick with what you’ve done all along the way, and don’t ignore and don’t deny the excitement.” The Dodgers brought the series back to St. Louis by muscling up on offense, with Adrian Gonzalez hitting two of their four homers in a 6-4 Game 5 victory Wednesday. Runs figure to be hard to come by in Game 6, although pitchers won’t have shadows as an ally with a 7:37 p.m. CDT start. Game 2 had a late afternoon start with shadows creeping across Busch Stadium es-
pecially in the early innings and lights providing no real help, plus there was fatigue from the Cardinals’ 13-inning win to open the series. “I think you’ll see both clubs get better at-bats just from the standpoint of vision,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. Mattingly was hopeful both Hanley Ramirez (ribs) and Andre Ethier (ankle) would benefit from a travel day Thursday and be in the lineup. “Andre, I expect to play. He just seems to get a little stronger,” Mattingly said. As for Ramirez, who was hit by a pitch in Game 1, “We don’t feel like he’s getting any worse. It’s just a matter of how the game goes for him.”
The Cardinals didn’t work out either, taking a bit of a mental break. “We’ve had a lot of these lately,” Matheny said. “Going back and forth I can feel a little jet lag. The guys aren’t going to forget how to hit, forget how to throw.” Kershaw is the major league ERA leader three years running and worked the Dodgers’ division clincher against Atlanta on three days’ rest. He gave up just two hits in six innings of Game 1 and was ready to go long before the Dodgers’ bats came alive. “I don’t really think about the what-ifs,” Kershaw said. “I always assumed I was going to pitch Game 6.” Kershaw has a career 1-2
postseason record despite an impressive 2.88 postseason ERA. “All we have to do,” Gonzalez said, “is score for him.” Wacha is 2-0 with a microscopic 0.64 ERA in the postseason, allowing just six hits in 14 innings with 17 strikeouts. Counting his last start of the regular season, when he was one out shy of a no-hitter, make it 3-0 with an 0.42 ERA. Slim leads have been of no concern, with the Cardinals totaling five runs in those games. “Just this whole postseason ride has been amazing,” Wacha said. “Hopefully we can just keep it going.” He knows how tough the opposing pitcher is, but says
that can’t be factor. “Kershaw’s a tough pitcher, obviously, and you saw that in his last start,” Wacha said. “But I try not to worry too much about who I’m facing. “Just try to approach it like any other start and just worry about myself, really.” Both are hard throwers from Texas who got to the majors fast. Kershaw was 20 when he made his debut in 2008 and Wacha was 21 and hadn’t been in the system a year when he opened with seven strong innings against the Royals in May. “He obviously handles himself pretty well,” Kershaw said. “I don’t think nerves is going to be the issue for him.”

Undefeated No. 16 Texas Tech squad comes to Morgantown Saturday with balanced offensive attack by amit batra sports editor @batra01
An undefeated No. 16 Texas Tech Red Raiders team will come into Morgantown Saturday attempting to continue their winning ways against a rested West Virginia squad. The Mountaineers (3-3, 1-2 Big 12) will look to get revenge after Texas Tech defeated a 5-0 WVU team in the 2012 season. At the time, West Virginia was in the top 5 in the country and everything seemed perfect in Morgantown. Fast forward a year and Texas Tech is the undefeated team with one of the better offenses in the nation. WVU will look to have another upset of its own Saturday, after taking down then-No. 11 Oklahoma State at home Sept. 28, prior to its 73-42 loss to
Baylor. In terms of passing, there aren’t many teams that present more of a challenge than the potent Red Raiders. TTU is led by freshman quarterback Baker Mayfield and is No. 3 in passing yards (408.8) and No. 14 in points with a 41.8 average. Against Iowa State Oct. 12, Texas Tech was able to hold on for a 42-35 win with freshman backup Davis Webb starting at QB, following an injury to Mayfield before the game. Webb completed 35 of 56 passes and threw for three touchdowns in the win over the Cyclones. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury said he was impressed with the freshman’s ability to handle the moment and manage the game. “He played well. We have some throws out there that he’d like to have back and some things he could have
hit, but I like the way he handled himself and stayed composed,” Kingsbury said. With the victory, the Red Raiders became bowl eligible at their earliest date since 2008. This is their first season with Kingsbury at the helm. There are questions as to who will be the definite starter against WVU for Kingsbury and Texas Tech. Mayfield, who twisted his right knee against Kansas Oct. 5, could get the nod if he’s healthy. If not, Webb or redshirt sophomore Michael Brewer will have to fill in and take the role. Both Mayfield and Webb have thrown five interceptions this season. “We’ve got three guys that can win ball games,” Kingsbury said, following the win against Iowa State. “Only one guy can play. They’re all competing, and they’re getting better. You
can see that by their play the last couple of weeks.” The same could be said about West Virginia, as head coach Dana Holgorsen said his three quarterbacks have gotten rest. Redshirt junior Clint Trickett took the whole bye week off, while junior Paul Millard and redshirt freshman Ford Childress were both able to practice. Kingsbury also saw some solid production from his running game against Iowa State. The Red Raiders were able to accumulate 251 yards on the ground, as sophomore DeAndre Washington, senior Sadale Foster and junior Kenny Williams all rushed for 80 yards or more. All three had a touchdown on the afternoon. “It was more of taking what was there,” Kingsbury said during the Big 12 coaches teleconference
Monday. “We have very talented backs. Like I’ve said all along, we’re going to do what we think we could do best each and every Saturday. Whether that’s to go and run it, we’ll see what’s working.” West Virginia will look to get one step closer to bowl eligibility Saturday against No. 16 Texas Tech. Kickoff is scheduled for noon at Milan Puskar Stadium. firstname.lastname@example.org

WVU backfield will be key to Mountaineers’ success Saturday by greg madia multimedia editor @dailyathenaeum
The West Virginia rushing attack sits No. 6 in the Big 12 Conference, averaging 147.5 rushing yards per game. And for the WVU offense, which has leaned on the running game throughout the first six weeks of the season, that number has to improve. Head coach Dana Holgorsen has been adamant about his team breaking longer rushes. West Virginia has had 10 rushes of 20 or more yards, but only two rushes for more than 50 yards, highlighted by Dreamius Smith’s 75-yard touchdown run against Oklahoma in Week 2. Much of that has to do with offensive line inconsistencies. With seven different offensive linemen starting games, some believe that has an effect on the ability to run the football for West Virginia. Running backs coach JaJuan Seider said he believes that will no longer be used as a deterrent for his group of backs. “We don’t use that as an excuse. My thing – and I always preach it to my guys – is make the offensive line
right,” Seider said. “It’s not always going to be blocked up (perfectly), but we’re good enough to make somebody miss to create a big play. That’s what I’m challenging them to do during the last six weeks.” Senior running back Charles Sims showed a flash of that against then-No. 17 Baylor when he ripped off a 39-yard touchdown run, making two defenders miss in the second level of the defense. While at Houston, Sims had six rushes more than 40 yards, including a 72-yard touchdown. Having itched for a longer, big-play sprint since he arrived in Morgantown, Sims said he finally feels like the opportunity to break off a longer run is getting closer. “It takes patience. Once we start moving the ball, playing fast, I know things will open up,” Sims said. “It’s coming. It just take patience.” Part of Sims’ belief that it’s coming has to do with what WVU has decided to do up front on the offensive line. Despite both he and coach Seider believing how the offensive line plays doesn’t affect how running backs play,
both are on the same page that having Quinton Spain at guard instead of tackle makes the team more physical. “It helps us; when you look at (Spain), he gives you a physical presence, especially in the double team. We really get to see the defender rooted out,” Seider said. With a new goal of breaking into the secondary on every rush and controlling the line of scrimmage, West Virginia will look to take the ball out of Texas Tech’s hands this week. The reenergized backfield of Sims, Smith and Wendell Smallwood has a big body to run behind at guard, and with Seider enforcing the belief of not completely relying on the offensive line, the WVU backfield will look to make plays on their own. “Let’s make it on our own if it’s not there,” Seider said. “Let’s help the offensive line. Sometimes we’re going to be outnumbered, but who cares.” email@example.com

Good news is we get a chance to redeem ourselves against another top-20 opponent that is undefeated. This is the fourth time we have played an undefeated and ranked team in the Big 12. The challenge is large, but I can assure you we are up for the challenge and will put our best foot forward, not only in preparation but also on game day on Saturday. I would expect a very festive atmosphere in Morgantown on Saturday.”

Texas back in Big 12 Conference title picture following win by greg madia multimedia editor @dailyathenaeum
Texas Back in Conference Title Hunt Texas head coach Mack Brown was and may still be on the hot seat, but after an upset victory over rival and then-No. 12 Oklahoma, the Longhorns improved to 3-0 in conference play. Despite a horrendous start and losses to BYU and Ole Miss in non-conference games, Texas sits tied atop the Big 12 Conference standings with Texas Tech and Baylor. “Our league is exciting this year because there isn’t a team that anyone can pick to win. It has already changed two or three times,” Brown said. “That is in our favor because we didn’t start well, but we still have a chance to win our conference
championship.” Brown said he credits his players for not giving up on this season after the two early losses. “You don’t forget the slip ups you had out of conference,” he said. “But we looked at that adversity and have gotten stronger and are moving forward, and that’s what you have to do to finish strong.” Texas has the weekend off and will play on the road at TCU Oct. 26. Baylor Happy to Have Martin Back No. 12 Baylor has gotten a boost to its already prolific offense. With production already coming at will from quarterback Bryce Petty, his cast of receivers and Heisman candidate Lache Seastrunk, it didn’t appear that the Bears were missing anything, especially since the offense is averaging 714
yards per game. But head coach Art Briles said he felt his team was missing some toughness until backup running back Glasco Martin returned two weeks ago against West Virginia. “You know Glasco (Martin) is just a tough guy,” Briles said. “We were concerned early in the year when we didn’t have him because we knew we may be in situations where we have to bang it out, and we needed a guy that could do it.” Martin provided toughness in Baylor’s victory over Kansas State with a 21-yard run late in the fourth quarter to put the game away. “He’s critical to us offensively and the team in general because he’s a tough guy on that side of the ball,” Briles said.
Tough Start Defending league champion Kansas State is at the midway point in its season. The Wildcats sit at 2-4 with six games remaining on the schedule. Head coach Bill Snyder said he is trying to get his team to believe they can have a stronger second half of the season. “Being 2-4 is never easy, and neither is the response to it. How you respond to it and how you feel about it is difficult for the players, coaches and the people that are invested in this program,” Snyder said. “The important thing for us is not what could have been, but what we are going to do.” Snyder and Kansas State return to the gridiron on Oct. 26 when West Virginia travels to Manhattan, Kan.

Texas Tech tight end Jace Amaro could pose problem for WVU by amit batra sports editor @batra01
When No. 16 Texas Tech comes to Morgantown to face West Virginia Saturday afternoon, head coach Dana Holgorsen will need to make sure his defense has their eyes on one particular Red Raider. Texas Tech tight end Jace Amaro was recently named to the CBSSports. com Midseason All-America Team following a season that’s seen the playmaker haul in 47 catches for 606 yards and a touchdown. “He is big, fast and strong, and he blocks well and catches well,” Holgorsen said. “He is pretty good. He should come out after his junior year. What happened (in 2012) is that we injured him so he had to come out, and he was on the shelf the rest of the year. This year he has been hard to contain. We saw it up close and personal last year. “He is a guy who can do a lot of different things. He creates a tremendous amount of mismatches not just for us but everybody they have played since then. I do not know how to stop him; you try to double cover him, but that opens up room for
some other good skill guys as well. He poses a lot of problems, and they have done a good job at utilizing him to get first downs and open up things for some other people.” After such a productive half of the season, NFL scouts may have found a winner in Amaro. He is a difficult cover at 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds. The tight end has caught at least eight passes in each of his past five games, including nine catches for 143 yards in the Red Raiders’ 42-35 victory over Iowa State Oct. 12. While Amaro is an intriguing prospect because of his blocking ability and size, he’s able to spread out in the slot for Texas Tech’s spread offense. The elusive threat has very good speed for a player his size, and his catching ability has given teams like Iowa State fits all season. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury deserves credit for Amaro’s breakout season. In 2012, prior to the spleen injury that made him miss the final six games, Amaro had 25 receptions for 409 yards and four touchdowns. Despite the injury, Amaro’s best game came against West Virginia in 2012, when he had his lon-
gest reception of the season: Amaro hauled in a 61-yard catch against the No. 5 WVU squad in Lubbock, Texas. Other career-highs in 2012 saw Amaro have five receptions and 156 all-purpose against Holgorsen’s squad. If WVU wants another upset win Saturday against the No. 16 Red Raiders, Amaro’s productivity will need to be limited. firstname.lastname@example.org
