WASHINGTON (AP) — Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the Sept. 11 attacks against the United States, is dead, and the U.S. is in possession of his body, according to President Barack Obama. “His demise should be welcomed by all who believe in peace and human dignity,” Obama said. A small team of Americans killed bin Laden in a firefight at a compound in Pakistan and took custody of bin Laden’s remains, the president said Sunday in a dramatic late-night statement at the White House. Few details were immediately available of the operation that resulted in bin Laden’s death, although the president said none of the Americans involved was harmed. A jubilant crowd gathered outside

Khayat honored for continued contributions to Ole Miss BY HEATHER APPLEWHITE The Daily Mississippian

ALEX EDWARDS | The Daily Mississippian

Chancellor Emeritus Robert Khayat stands in front of the Brandt Memory House, home of his office at Ole Miss. Khayat, who earned his Master of Law at Yale, has been president of the NCAA foundation, a member of the Chamber of Commerce, an M-Club Alumni and most recently honored with the naming of the new law center after him.

He started as a student, then progressed to a professional athlete, lawyer, professor and chancellor. Now, Chancellor Emeritus Robert Khayat has the University’s new $50 million law school named after him. Khayat said having the new building named after him is an overwhelming honor. “It’s incomprehensible really, and it’s overwhelming,” Khayat said. “Certainly, my family and I are grateful and thankful, but at the same time it is not something that you ever expect to happen to you.” After being chosen Professor of the Year in 1993 and 1994, Khayat became the chancellor, a position he served in from 1995 until he retired in 2009. Even though Khayat’s name is the one on the building, he said that it represents so many more people. “When I was chancellor, we really had a team of people who worked together on different projects, and so although my name is on the building, I see that as being representative of all those people, and I’m talking about a lot of people,” Khayat said. “Not just 10 or 20, but everybody at Ole Miss, plus the people that supported

it: the architects, the contractors, just everybody who made it a reality.” Former Dean of Law Parham Williams taught and worked with Khayat for many years. Williams said Khayat was a committed student when he was here. “He was a very fine student, always prepared, very serious, very conscientious in his preparation for class,” Williams said. “He had the intellectual resources and the general ability to be a very successful and effective lawyer.” Williams said that he chose Khayat as his associate dean for many reasons. “I was dean of the law school, and I appointed him as my associate dean,” Williams said. “I did that because I recognized his unusual skills in what I call people management, that is, he’s wonderfully winsome in his personality and able to quickly establish a useful, friendly rapport with his students and with his faculty colleagues and with others.” Williams said Khayat was always good to bring to seminars as assistant dean. “He was the cynosure of all eyes and people flocked around to get to see him and talk to him and he just always produced a See KHAYAT, PAGE 6

Wednesday’s child BY ANGELA ROGALSKI Columnist


All the ingredients were there, according to meteorologists, for the outbreak of violent storms that hit the South on Wednesday. Cold air versus warm air, something the professionals call wind shear (where strong winds aloft change speed or direction quickly) and the actual position of the United States in general, situated as we are between the cold from Canada and the very warm winds that blow upwards from the Gulf of Mexico. We knew it was predicted. The super cells had been building for a week. The various weather people had been doing their jobs, warning residents over and over again about the inevitable danger and life-threatening storms that were heading our way. All of them are to be commended. Their coverage and overall care and concern for the lives of their viewers were

beyond apparent. For that, thank you. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) there was an estimated 211 tornados across seven states on Wednesday, April 27. That figure alone is terrifying. The fear that the word “tornado” can strike inside you is palpable because we all know what they’re capable of, what they can do and what they did on that woeful Wednesday. But what is also memorable and brings renewed hope in the wake of our recent tragedy is the way people all over have come together to help those that were devastated by the storms. The human spirit can soar above adversity and reach through the layers of desolation; it’s a characteristic within our makeup that when called upon can move mountains. And as I read report after report of that inherent trait,

I see those gargantuan rises of horror and fear start to shift and in the aftermath of the destruction, my own morale is uplifted. There is an account written by a University of Alabama student that tells the tale of her survival of the storm and the shell-shocked feeling that controlled her after it was over. Her story also includes the hands that were held out for her to hang onto; a group that had traveled to Tuscaloosa from Mississippi that gave her, her roommate and her family lunch without them asking for it. In the story, she said that act of kindness made their hard time easier and gave them hope for the future. A small gesture to some, but to people who lived through what they had, it meant everything.

Donald Trump, you’re fired BY JON MOSBY Columnist

Donald Trump finally got the roasting he deserved at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ dinner. Comedian Seth Meyers said, “Donald Trumps often appears on Fox, which is ironic because a fox often appears on his head!” The dinner, which was a gathering of big name D.C. reporters, politicians and celebrities, blasted Trump on nearly every aspect of his life, which is well-deserved. President Obama said, “Donald Trump has been saying he will run for president as a Republican, which is surprising because I just assumed that he was running as a joke.” Donald Trump has made a complete fool of himself and the Republican Party. Trump went on a whirlwind media tour with his “belief” that

Obama may not be an American citizen, which is completely ridiculous after the Republican Party had clearly let the issue die down. Last week, when Obama officially released his long-form birth certificate, Trump took credit and said he was the cause for the release. With all that Trump has said, one would expect that he is pretty much perfect. Trump’s entire career, however, is a complete failure. In 1988, Trump purchased Eastern Air Shuttle, a fleet of 17 Boeing 727s, for $365 million. He, of course, renamed it Trump Shuttles, but he had to give the small airline the Trump experience. He added rich maple wood floors, chrome seat-belt latches and even golden bathroom fixtures. The Trump Shuttle was a complete failure, and it ceased operation in 1992. Trump created Trump Vodka in 2006 to compete with Grey Goose. The vodka company never meet production quotas, and it too was a failure. But Trump’s biggest failures are his many bankruptcies. In 1990, the banks that supported his companies had to bail him out for $65 million. The deal was called a

“rescue package,” and it contained new loans and lines of credit. Just nine months later, Trump was $4 million in debt. His Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City had to file for bankruptcy, while he somehow personally netted a cool $1 billion in the early ‘90s. In 2004, Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts filed for bankruptcy. Again in 2009, Trump’s company filed for bankruptcy, yet he was able to stay on as chairman. And just for the hell of it, Trump’s hair is absolutely ridiculous. He’s not fooling anyone, and I would like to think he knows that. Is it a comb-over? Is that even his hair? And what color is his hair? Is he blonde? Is he a redhead? Trump has been married more times than he can remember. He married his first wife, Ivana in 1977. They divorced in 1992, and Trump married his mistress, Marla Maples. Trumps and Maples divorced only four years later in 1996. He’s been married to model Melania Knauss since 2005. For his sake, I hope that one lasts. Trump claims to be a proud American and he’s that proud of American made products. In an

interview he said, “The stuff that’s been sent over from China falls apart after a year and a half. It’s crap!” Trump has his own clothing line. Most of the clothing is produced in (you guessed it) China. Other clothing items for his clothing lines are produced in Mexico and Bangeladesh. Trump basically wants to own the Middle East. To sustain the huge cost of America’s involvement in the Middle East, Trump suggested that we take oil from the Middle East. In

BIN LADEN, continued from page 1 the White House as word spread of bin Laden’s death after a global manhunt that lasted nearly a decade. Two senior counterterrorism officials confirmed that bin Laden was killed in Pakistan last week. One said bin Laden was killed in a ground operation, not by a Predator drone. Both said the operation was based on U.S. intelligence, and both said the U.S. is in possession of bin Laden’s body. Officials long believed bin Laden, the most wanted man in the world, was hiding in a mountainous region along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, and senior Pakistani intelligence official confirms that Osama bin Laden was killed in Pakistan. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to speak ahead of the president. The development comes just months before the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Centers and Pentagon, orchestrated by bin Laden’s al-Qaida organization, that killed more than 3,000 people. The attacks set off a chain of events that led the United States into wars in Afghanistan, and then Iraq, and America’s entire intelligence apparatus was overhauled to counter the threat of more terror at-

tacks at home. The Al-Qaida organization was also blamed for the 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa that killed 231 people and the 2000 attack on the USS Cole that killed 17 American sailors in Yemen, as well as countless other plots, some successful and some foiled. “Justice has been done,” the president said. Former President George W. Bush said he congratulated President Barack Obama after hearing about the death of Osama bin Laden. He also congratulated the men and women of the U.S. military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to the mission. Bush said, “This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001.” He also said the U.S. “has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.”

Superintendent on medical leave BY LUKE TAYLOR The Daily Mississippian

Brian Harvey, assistant superintdendent, has stepped in as acting superintendent of the Oxford School District while Dr. Kim Stasny is on medical leave. “There hasn’t been time for any sort of transition period,” Harvey said. “Right now we are trying to get this school year finished up and start making preparations for next year.” Stasny was diagnosed with a brain tumor earlier this month, after reporting a slight vision problem. Buddy Chain, Oxford school board president said Stasny made it through her surgery and is recoverng well. Her follow up treatment is expected to take approximately six to eight weeks and will begin shortly. The earliest she is expected to return to work is June. Chain said this is the busiest time of year for the school district. “The next couple of months will be a busy time for Mr. Harvey, the other administrators of the district, the teachers and the support staff,” Chain said. Currently, school closing activities are taking place and preparations for the new school year are beginning. In addition, teacher and staff recruitment for position openings will be finalized and a regular summer maintenance program will be developed and implemented. The district is also in the early stages of the renovation and building of area schools. Della Davidson Elementary and Oxford Middle School will soon begin renovations that will add classrooms to the schools. Oxford Middle School will also begin the demolition of their current gym and start building a replacement facility. The early stages of construction of a new school for Oxford High will also soon be underway. Chain said one of the most important tasks of the school district will be undertaking in the next couple of months is developing a budget for the 2011-2012 school year. “The transition to Brian Harvey as acting superintendent of the Oxford School District is going extremely well,” Chain said. “As assistant superintendent he was closely involved in virtually all of the administrative activities of the district and therefore has substantial knowledge of the ongoing program and projects.”


Oxford Civic Chorus presents Hollywood tribute BY CHRIS LAWYER The Daily Mississippian

On May 9, the Oxford Civic Chorus will pay tribute to Hollywood as its spring concert comes to Oxford. The performance, entitled “Hooray for Hollywood,” will debut singers and musicians performing music from movies including Casablanca, Forrest Gump and Avatar. “I think our audience is going to love the ‘Hooray for Hollywood’ concert,” Linda Sperath, board secretary, said. “The music is familiar and fun.” The Oxford Civic Chorus is a group of musicians from North Mississippi. The chorus

was founded in 1998 and presents two major concerts a year. OCC also stays active in many events in Oxford throughout the year. The group performs all types of music from patriotic music to stage music. OCC has also performed with the Memphis Symphony and the Jackson Symphony. The chorus picks two themes for the major concerts and uses a group to select music. Sperath said that director Brooke Bagley Worthy generally picks the theme and selects the music. Sperath said that the group has done some Broadway and pop music, but added that the music for this concert is dif-

ferent. She thinks it is a lighter program that will have a more popular appeal. Meredith Wilson, a sophomore history major, is a member of the Ole Miss women’s Glee and the Concert Singers. She thinks a tribute to Hollywood is a great idea. Wilson said that it is something she would enjoy attending and plans to see. Sperath said the group went to great lengths to pick the music. She and a committee led by Bagley Worthy searched for music and feel they found the perfect combinations for the performance. “The music is selected from a wide range of films dating from the 1930s to present-day

blockbusters.” Sperath said. Sperath said the group is always looking for more members, and encourages those interested to attend try-outs in July and August. Tickets are currently on sale for $10 for adults and $5 for students. Tickets can be picked up from members of the chorus and at the Powerhouse Community Arts Center on University Avenue. All remaining tickets will be sold at the door. The performance will open at 7 p.m. on May 9 at North Baptist Oxford Church on Lamar Blvd/Old Highway 7.

Ole Miss researches new cancer remedies BY AMBER HELSEL The Daily Mississippian

Under oxygen-lacking conditions, HIF-1a is stabilized and allows the cell to adjust to the conditions. The researchers at Ole Miss are looking to target HIF-1 with natural extracts and inhibit its ability to allow the tumor cell to adjust to hypoxic conditions. “What we do basically is we get samples from the National Cancer Institute and then we screen them against the activation of HIF-1,” Datta said. “Once we find something that is active in our essay, we request NCI to send larger sample, so we can chemically and biologically characterize it. Datta said they will simulate the hypoxic conditions in the cells before they then induce the stabilization of the HIF-1, and then they see what plant extracts can prevent that stabilization. The research team is hoping to find new drugs with lesser side effects to treat cancer, or that can lessen the side effects of other treatments such as

Researchers at the University of Mississippi are discovering new ways to lessen the side effects of drugs used in cancer treatment. Researchers Dale Nagle, Yu-Dong Zhou and graduate student Sandipan Datta have been given a grant by the National Cancer Institute to study the effects levels of oxygen have in cancer cells and natural products that target tumor cells that are hypoxic, or have reduced oxygen. Datta said that when a tumor occurs in the body, the cells divide very rapidly, which causes the tumor to grow larger. “The growth of the tumor outgrows the growth of blood vessels inside the tumor.” Datta said. “When our body grows, you have to supply the blood because from blood you get the nutrients and oxygen necessary for the cells of the body.” Datta said that when tumors SENIOR grow they grow rapidly in size, HONORS THESIS and that the blood supply system cannot keep up with it.

chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Each researcher in the project has a different role. Zhou, a molecular biologist, said that the biology and chemistry departments combine the research, and that his role is to envision the project from a biological aspect. Zhou said that the main problem their research faces is funding. Funding, she said, is getting more difficult to receive for a state school. “What we do is not theoretical or computing.” Zhou said. “We need people to do the research, to carry out the research, and we need to buy supplies. When there’s human labor involved [in research], the price tag can be pretty formidable. Zhou said that it is getting continuously harder for state schools to recruit compared to those who have bigger research centers. “When I was a grad student, one out of three proposals got

funded.” Zhou said. “Nowadays with the budget getting smaller and smaller, what they did was they awarded bigger and bigger amounts of money to a few established programs.” Jamie Osman, a graduate engineering science student, said that these drugs help make life easier on the patients that are fighting cancer. “Drugs that could lessen the effects of cancer treatment would relieve one of the few stresses weighing on a cancer patient and hopefully allow them a more normal day to day life,” Osman said. Osman who lost two family members to cancer is also the president of the Ole Miss Chapter of Colleges against Cancer. “Even though this may seem like a small luxury being able to enjoy the good things in life while battling cancer probably does more for the body than one can imagine.” Osman said.

good crowd,” Williams said. Chancellor Dan Jones worked with Khayat before Jones took over as chancellor of the University in 2009. Jones said that Khayat responded to the news of the law school’s new name as he usually does. “Chancellor Khayat responded in his usual humble way,” Jones said. “He was humbled and grateful.” Jones said many were in on the decision to choose Khayat as the person to name the new law school after. “Many were involved in the decision to honor Chancellor Khayat, including many in the University family who suggested it, members of the Board of Trustees of the Institutions of Higher Learning and the

Mississippi Legislature,” Jones said. “It was exciting to see such strong consensus that this was an appropriate way to honor his legacy of leadership for the University.” Jones said Khayat had a huge impact during his fourteen years as chancellor. “Chancellor Khayat’s impact is too large to easily describe,” Jones said. “As a law school professor, he made substantial contributions to the school and his students. His 14 years of leadership as chancellor transformed our university, both in reality and in perception. He led us to become a great American public university. “The name Khayat is iconic at Ole Miss and, I believe, highly respected among stu-

dents, current and past.” Williams said the most important thing Khayat did during his time as chancellor was his expansion of the academic programs at the University. “I think the singular most important thing he accomplished while he was here was the acquisition of the chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, because Ole Miss is and should essentially be an academic institution committed to scholarship and to providing outstanding career educational opportunities to students,” Williams said. “Others may point to successful football seasons and building programs or to the presidential debate, but it all boils down to the success that he was able to bring to the

University in the enhancement of the academic programs. “He lifted (the University) to a whole new plateau of accomplishment and respect and a national, even international prestige.” Larry Ridgeway, Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs, said one of Khayat’s most important accomplishments as chancellor was making people realize that it is OK to be from Mississippi. “One of the most important things he did was he helped the University and the folks that are a part of the University realize that we are a lot better than folks give us credit for being sometimes,” Ridgeway said. “I think he gave a lot of members of the faculty, staff, and as well as students encouragement to strive to be the best you can be and not apologize for the fact that you’re here in Mississippi.” Ridgeway said Khayat had a great way of making people feel special and a part of the team. “I enjoyed very much my opportunities to interact with him when he was chancellor,” Ridgeway said. “He’s an amazing person, very charismatic, very supportive. He always has amazed me with his ability to make every individual feel like that they were the most important person I guess you could say. Williams and Ridgeway both said that Khayat was great a fundraiser. “He was an excellent fundraiser, very good at that,” Williams said. “The secret of that is he likes people and people like him, so when he hits them with a question to give money, what can they say except yes.” “He had a real gift of folks to turn lose their pocket books, and obviously that’s an important job of any leader of any

institution of education, to be able to generate private funding that’s used to support the programs that are needed in order for the institution to be the best it can be,” Ridgeway said. Ridgeway said all of Khayat’s contributions and improvements to the school would certify the law school being dedicated to him. “The (former) chancellor has made enormous contributions to this University,” Ridgeway said. “It’s amazing to think that all during his 14 or so years as chancellor, all of the improvements that have been made to the programs on campus and facilities and certainly the appearance of the campus. I think it has improved dramatically during the time that he was chancellor, so I think all of his many contributions to the University would merit that he be recognized by having a building of the magnitude of the law school named for him.” Khayat, who earned his Master of Law at Yale, was president of the NCAA foundation, Chamber of Commerce, Mclub Alumni and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. “I’ve always believed that the academic programs and the student life programs have to come first and you have to have high quality humanities and arts and sciences and professional schools and a first class library, top of the line information technology and you want to have really good sports,” Khayat said. “The way I have described it in the past is a integrity based successful athletics program for women and men. “One of the things I’ve always loved about my job was the fact that I was with students all the time, and y’all are great.”

In Review: the 2011 Camaro convertible

SUSAN HOLT | The Daily Mississippian


At first glance, the 2011 Camaro convertible looks like the perfect car. It has plenty of muscle, is quite agile and looks pretty good topless. But, first glances can be misleading. The best part of the Camaro convertible has to be its looks. When driving around town, people will honk their horns, and women will wave and wink at you. The Camaro looks good both top up and top down, which is more than can be said for many convertibles. The top goes down in a rather quick 17 seconds after you unlock the single latch in the center of the windshield frame and press down the rocker switch, but the top does take up a considerable amount of trunk space, so your golf buddies will have to hold their clubs in their laps.

Our test car also came with a tonneau cover, which you would probably use for about two days before giving up on the hassle it causes. Unfortunately, the good looks of the exterior don’t carry over into the interior, which is unchanged from the Coupe. The plastics in the car look and feel extremely cheap, which is okay on the $24,000 V6 Base Coupe, but with our test car’s price tag of $43,470, I would expect a little more. However, the convertible does help alleviate the claustrophobic-like interior of the Coupe. Well, at least a little. It gets rid of those huge blind spots from the Coupe, but the extremely thick A-pillars and highly-raked windshield still make vision difficult. Also, as soon as you put the top back up, you are back in a World War II era pillbox. When you cut the top off a car, its body seems to want to

twist and shake and do other nasty things. To counteract this, Chevrolet has added a front tower brace, extra bracing on the transmission and prop shaft tunnels and braces tying the front and rear subframes to the unibody. From what I could tell, they did an excellent job, because the convertible is just as stiff as the Coupe. But also like the Coupe, the steering is a bit heavy and unresponsive. Our test car came equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission, which costs an additional $1,185. The automatic does have the TaPshift feature, which allows you to change gears with small buttons behind the steering wheel. However, these manual shifts are very slow compared to many systems by other manufacturers, and they can really take the fun out of driving in manual mode. On a better note, it does has a

Instead you get the 6.2-liter L99 V8, which has 400 horsepower and 410 pounds per foot of torque (which is 10 fewer pounds a foot than that of the LS3) and a redline that is 400 revolutions lower at 6200 revolutions per minute. What you do get is cylinder deactivation, which essentially runs the engine on four cylinders instead of eight under light loads. Basically, this gives you better gas mileage, and on the Camaro, it improves only highway mileage by a paltry one mile a gallon to 26 miles a gallon. All the electric top’s motors, the chassis’ extra bracing and other things related to the convertible raise its weight by a hefty 246 pounds, which

adds up to slower-performancenumbers. The speed of sixty miles per hour comes in at 5.2 seconds, which is 0.3 seconds slower than an automatic-equipped Coupe and half a second slower than the Mustang GT convertible, its bitter rival. It runs the quarter mile in 13.8 seconds, which is half a second slower than the Coupe and 0.6 seconds slower than a Mustang GT convertible. The 2011 Camaro convertible is a lot like a pretty woman in a bar. At first, she looks very sexy and appealing with her top off, and you like to show her off to your friends. But then you start dating her and find out she’s extremely hard to live with because even though the topless thing is nice, you just know there are better options out there. However, the Camaro is still a high-torque V8 with a convertible top that makes for endless fun.

Moore wins 400 meter hurdle title at Drake Relays DES MOINES, Iowa – Led by senior Lee Ellis Moore’s win in the 400 meter hurdles, Ole Miss posted several impressive results over the weekend at the prestigious Drake Relays. Moore captured the 400 meter hurdle crown with a time of 49.96, just shy of his season-best 49.82 that ranks him fifth in the nation in the event. He won the event at the Drake Relays for the second straight year and won for the second straight week. He has finished in the top three in the 400-meter hurdles at each of the last five meets. Sophomore Ricky Robertson tied his own school record with a mark of 7-05.75 in the high jump to tie for third in the mixed competition of collegians and professionals on Saturday. He finished second among collegians to rival Erik Kynard of Kansas State. Kynard cleared the

bar at 7-07.00, while Robertson had two close misses at that height. Sophomore Mike Granger was again sensational in the 100 meters, finishing second to Oklahoma’s Rakieem Salaam by running 10.24. That was .02 seconds off his season-best of 10.22 that ranks him in the top 20 nationally this year. Senior Jonathan Juin placed fifth at 10.43. In the 3,000-meter steeplechase, Martin Kirui finished second with a time of 8:54.45, which ranks him among the top 30 athletes in that event in the nation this year. The Rebels’ 4x400 meter relay team of Dante Oliver, Carson Blanks, Christopher Bush and Moore placed fifth in the finals, while sophomore Morris Kersh was fourth in the triple jump. On Friday, junior Caleb Lee, who entered the weekend

ranked 12th nationally in the long jump, earned a fourth-place finish in the event with a mark of 24-09.25. Senior Sofie Persson had a big day on Saturday as she placed third in the 400 meter hurdles and helped the Rebels’ 4x400 meter relay squad to a seasonbest time and third-place finish as well. Persson’s 57.56 in the 400 meter hurdles was a season best and ranks her among the top 15 nationally in the event this year. Anchoring the relay team of Lauren Hollingsworth, Sofia Hellberg-Jonsen and Kristin Bridges, Persson helped the team to a 3:33.22 time in the finals, which ranks the squad second-best in school history. The women’s 4x100 meter relay team also had a strong race on Saturday as the group of Bridges, Aria Gaines, Jasmine Williams and LaJada Baldwin

crossed the line in a season-best 44.93 to place fifth. On Friday, sophomore Neal Tisher cleared a height of 1305.25 to place second in the pole vault. She entered the weekend ranked 10th in the nation with a school-record 13-09.25 earlier this year. Senior Betty Williams, who set the school record in the discus earlier this year with a throw of 176-11, launched her disc 169-1 on Friday to place seventh. “We had a very good meet,” Rebel head coach Joe Walker said. “We didn’t’ have as many titles as last year, but we did have a lot of second-place results that ‘could have been.’ I was proud of all of our athletes and for having so many season bests. Ricky Robertson jumped well again, and the women’s 4x400 relay was especially good today.” Former Rebel and NCAA

Champion Antwon Hicks also competed at the Drake Relays and won the special 110-meter hurdles race with a sensational 13.46, beating out other professionals and one college runner. Ole Miss also sent some athletes to the Memphis Tiger Invitational this weekend, and the long-distance runners led the way in the Bluff City. Freshman Kipchirchir Kiptoo took second place in the men’s 3,000 meters with a personal-best 8:45.13, while Katie Breathitt and Kayleigh Skinner clocked two of the best times in school history in the women’s 3,000. Breathitt ran 10:14.59 to rank third in school history, while Skinner ran 10:18.98 to rank fourth in school history. Ole Miss has next weekend off before traveling to Athens, Ga., for the 2011 SEC Championships May 12-15.

with Illinois linebacker Martez Wilson in the third round and Pittsburgh defensive end Greg Romeus in the seventh round. If not for injury issues, Romeus would have been drafted in the top two or three rounds. Cincinnati: The Bengals went into the draft knowing they had holes to fill at quarterback and wide receiver. Quarterback Carson Palmer has asked to be traded and also contemplated retirement, while the wide receiver position continues to be a question mark with the continued off-the-field distractions of Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco. The Bengals drafted former Georgia product A.J. Green, considered by many experts the top wide receiver in this year’s draft, with the fourth pick in the first round to fill the hole at wide receiver. After a run on quarterbacks in the first round,

the Bengals were able to grab TCU quarterback Andy Dalton in the second round. If given a couple of years, Dalton could turn into a pretty solid quarterback for the Bengals. They also added a legitimate pass rusher in the third round with Nevada’s Dontay Moch, who has top-end speed at 250-pounds. Fourth rounder Clint Boling from Georgia and fifth rounder Robert Sands from West Virginia shore up the offensive line and defensive backfield, respectively. Tomorrow, Hipp looks at five losers of the 2011 Draft. On Wednesday, Bennett wraps up the three-part series with a recap of how the Southeastern Conference fared, including five of the top six picks in the first round and former Ole Miss defensive tackle Jerrell Powe, who went to the Kansas City Chiefs with the 199th pick in the sixth round.

Luke Stocker, a tight end out of Tennessee, was a great value and has the potential to be an aboveaverage player. New Orleans: Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good, and New Orleans had to be ecstatic when former California defensive end Cameron Jordan fell to them with the 24th pick in the first round. Jordan has great speed off the edge and adds some much needed pass-rushing ability to the Saints’ defense. New Orleans then traded up into the first round to draft Heisman Trophy-winning running back Mark Ingram from Alabama with their second pick. Ingram should come right in and complement running back Pierre Thomas. He should also help replace the expected departure of running back Reggie Bush. The Saints also picked up a couple of value picks later in the draft

No. 4 Florida sweeps Diamond Rebels with 7-2 win on Sunday GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The Rebels got men in scoring position, but couldn’t come up with the big hit when they needed to as Ole Miss (24-20, 9-12 SEC) dropped the series finale to No. 4 Florida (3410, 17-4 SEC) on Sunday by a score of 7-2. Ole Miss put men in scoring position in four of the first five innings, but couldn’t get a run home until Will Allen’s single in the seventh inning put the Rebels on the board. Matt Smith added a home run in the eighth inning to move into sole possession of second place on the all-time list for home runs at Ole Miss with 41 for his career. Austin Wright (4-4) suffered the loss for the Rebels, allowing four runs on five hits with a strikeout in 2.2 innings of work. Karsten Whitson (6-0) grabbed the win for Florida as he held the Rebels scoreless through 6.0 innings and allowed three hits with two walks and four strikeouts. “You have to tip your hat to Florida,” Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco said. “They played terrific and got the big hits to extend the lead. We stayed out of giving up the big inning, but we just couldn’t stop them. Florida pitches well and their command is good, they got the big hits and made all the plays defensively. They just kind of smother you out there.” Florida took the early lead, scoring in the first on a sac fly to left field from Nolan Fontana that brought Bryson Rose Home. Rose doubled down the left field line before a wild pitch moved him to third to set up the score on the Fontana fly ball. Mike Zunino then doubled before scoring on a single up the middle from Preston Tucker that put Florida up 2-0. The Gators added to the lead in the third inning, pushing two more runs across the plate when Zunino came up with a two-RBI double that scored runners from first and third. Zunino repeated the feat with his third double of the afternoon in the fifth inning to drive in two more runs and spark a Florida rally. Tucker then singled to drive in Zunino and put the Gators on top 7-0 after five innings of play. With the Rebels threatening to put together another rally in the bottom of the sixth, Ole

NFL Draft in Review Part I: Winners The 76th annual NFL draft ended on Saturday, and because of the lockout, the draft as it stands todaywas the only way for teams to acquire new talent and fill needs. As always, some teams managed to do this successfully, while others failed miserably. Today, we look at five winners of the 2011 NFL draft. BY BENNET HIPP Columnist

Sophomore second baseman Alex Yarbrough hit a solo home run, his fifth of the season, in the first inning of a 9-3 loss to No. 4 Florida in Friday night’s series opener. Yarbrough was one of four Rebels to homer this weekend, along with Austin Anderson, Miles Hamblin and Matt Smith.

Miss turned to the bullpen for Jake Morgan. Morgan, who was seeing his first action since the March 20 game against Alabama, got the Rebels out of the inning with a groundout. Ole Miss got on the board in the seventh when Allen singled to right field to drive in Matt Snyder from third. Snyder reached on a fielding error in

left on a fly ball before taking third on a wild pitch to set up the score on the Allen hit. Smith then hit his solo shot in the eighth inning to cut the lead to 7-2 which proved to be the final score. Ole Miss will return to action on Wednesday when the Rebels travel to face Arkansas State in Jonesboro, Ark., at 6:30 p.m.

Detroit: Detroit has improved significantly on the field the past two seasons and this draft should help them continue along the path toward becoming a playoff contender. Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley was a great value pick as the 13th pick in the first round. With the combination of Fairley and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, the Lions’ first round pick in last year’s draft will give opposing offenses nightmares for years to come. Illinois running back Mikel Leshoure was another good value in the second round and could start alongside fellow second-round pick Titus Young, a wide receiver from Boise State. Green Bay: Coming off of a Super Bowl win, the Packers kept the momentum going by having a fantastic draft. Drafting versatile offensive lineman Derrek Sherrod from Mississippi State with the last pick in the first round adds depth to an already solid offensive line. They used their second round pick to give quar-

terback Aaron Rodgers another weapon in do-everything wide receiver Randall Cobb from Kentucky. My favorite pick of theirs, however, may have been snagging Arkansas tight end D.J. Williams, who won last year’s Mackey Award for the nation’s best tight end in the fifth round. Tampa Bay: Tampa Bay came into the draft needing to add players on the defenseline, and they immediately added help with Iowa defensive end Adrian Clayborn, the 20th pick in the first round. Clayborn has had some injury issues, but he had 11.5 sacks in 2009 and six in 2010. Their second round pick, defensive end Da’Quan Bowers out of Clemson, could turn into the steal of the draft if he stays healthy. Bowers was talked about as a top-three pick in the draft before injury concerns with his knee pushed him way down the board and into the second round. If the knee holds up, Bowers has multiple-Pro Bowl potential. Washington’s Mason Foster solidifies their linebacking corp, and fourth rounder See DRAFT, PAGE 11
