Students may face eviction for past due bills

olice-sponsored safety training will now be available to University of Nebraska-Lincoln students and faculty as part of the UNL Police Department’s efforts to become more integrated with the UNL community. The training seminars, which will focus on a specific safety topic each month, are the department’s first formal series of training sessions for students and faculty. UNLPD Assistant Chief Todd Duncan said the department has offered various forms of training for years, but the programs have never been this structured. “We’re focusing on putting more variety in the program and making it more accessible,” Duncan said. He said the idea came about when UNLPD Chief Owen Yardley wanted to initiate an outreach program based on local and national issues pertinent to a college community. The training program will offer seminars each month on topics that are in sync with national trends. For example, the department has tentative plans to discuss outdoor safety in May before students leave for the summer. UNLPD Officer Koan Nissen said the department plans to bring in guest speakers for some of the presentations. “We’re trying to get experts on some of the topics that we as a department don’t typically handle,” Nissen said. He said, for example, the department plans to have a speaker from Nebraska Game and Parks Commission to talk about summer safety for activities such as

About 400 to 600 University of Nebraska-Lincoln students face the possibility of eviction from University Housing this semester. But the list will shrink, housing director Sue Gildersleeve said. “There’s typically a few hundred that begin the process and receive notices that they have past student bills and would face eviction,” Gildersleeve said. Eviction notices are typically given to students who are two months past due on their financial payments, which include tuition, fees and NCard payments. Bill payments for the fall semester were due on Sept. 12 and Oct. 12. If students hadn’t paid their account by Oct. 12, then they were made a candidate for eviction. These fees can pile up as a result of negligence or a lack of communication. Students may not realize they have fines or there could be loan paperwork that needs to be taken care of before payments can be accounted for. Compared with last year, student eviction notices are down by about 100, said Collette McCurdy, director of student accounts. Fall semester usually has about four or five students evicted, and spring semester has fewer. Those

FAFSA considers changing due date of applications Kelli Rollin dn Students may be able to have more time for financial aid. An article in The Chronicle of Higher Education reported a possible change in the way students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid was released on Monday. The FAFSA deadline is April 1 and acts on a first-come, first-served basis with funds that are given. The change considers using “prior-prior year” tax data, financial information from two years ago, instead of one year ago. This change is said to help students in need receive aid and give students more time to make school decisions while preventing missed deadlines. Craig Munier, director at the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, said he’s been around financial aid for more
than 30 years and has been talking about using prior-prior year data for a long time. “I think this is an idea whose time has really come,” Munier said. As of now, students have to wait until Jan. 1 to complete the FAFSA because it requires the most recent tax data from the previous calendar year. “Several things have been evolving and changing over time that make us want to re-evaluate that and take another look at that,” Munier said. Along with using the priorprior data, the change would include moving up the application date to the fall instead of January. Munier said this would create consistency, especially for high school seniors. He said they could apply for college, scholarships and financial aid and know the information around the same time. Using older tax data has the chance of being less accurate, es-
pecially if a family catastrophe occurred that would affect finances, such as a divorce or death of a parent, Munier said. He said a special circumstances process would be in effect for situations like this when students would fill out the FAFSA, if the changes are implemented. Cody Rader, freshman business administration major, said he didn’t complete the FAFSA until the deadline approached. “I wasn’t really sure how to fill it out, and I eventually went to the financial aid office in my hometown and got help with it,” Rader said. Rader said it would have been better for him to apply for the FAFSA earlier because more grants and other funds are available. He’s indifferent to the idea of using prior-prior tax data, but he said he thinks the change may confuse some students. If the change is made, he said he hopes financial aid services would clearly explain the reason for the change and con-

tinue to help students with the FAFSA. Munier said in the U.S., more performance-based scholarships have been offered to high school seniors in September or October. This aims to entice students early to think about choosing the school that offered them the award, and the aid typically tend to go to more financially stable families, Munier said. He said students who need federal financial aid tend to come from middle- and lower-income families where money is a determining factor if the student goes

to college at all. He said these are the students that depend on the FAFSA and have to typically wait until March or April to see how much aid they can receive. “Ironically, the students that need to know the information earliest in today’s system find out last,” Munier said. When students complete the FAFSA a couple of weeks after their parents’ taxes are filed, there is a delay time with the Internal Revenue Service processing the information. Munier said using prior-prior tax information would allow more
data to be available about the student’s income so the process wouldn’t take so long. He said the change would also allow students more time to decide if and where they are going to college because they can determine their financial situations earlier. He said deadlines are important because only a certain amount of funds are available for many students, which is why Rader said it would have been better for him to apply earlier. “I think a lot of us are starting to realize that we can simplify this process,” Munier said. “We can make this more seamless for students, we can line this process up to be more consistent with the college decision process than it is today, and for the sake of the students that we serve, I hope that we have some momentum on this time around and I hope that we can actually achieve this.” news@ dailynebraskan.com

UNL dining opens Neihardt sandwich shop on weekends to add more dining options for students kelli rollin dn Heroes are now available as a weekend dining option on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln City Campus. Husker Heroes, an on-campus “made-to-order” sandwich shop that serves as an alternative lunch option to traditional dining halls, is now open on the weekends. The sandwich shop in the basement of Neihardt Residence Hall is now open from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. seven days a week. This is the first year Husker Heroes has been open on weekends. Ronald Burke, director of housing dining service, said he’s pleased with the decision to open the dining option on weekends. He said the Cather/Pound/ Neihardt dining hall isn’t open on the weekends, which doesn’t leave close dining options for students living in University Suites and Knoll residence centers. Burke said he and the dining staff looked at the possibility of opening the CPN dining hall to give students on the south side of campus more options than Selleck, which is the closest dining hall to Knoll and University Suites. However, students don’t visit CPN enough to make it cost effective to have it open on

UNL faculty find love in theater program After meeting in 2009, two faculty members have married and look forward to adoption Paige osborne dn Sarah Imes was auditioning for the role of Rebekah Muldoon in “Anatomy of Gray” at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Repertory Theatre when she first met Ian Borden, an assistant professor who had just been hired. But it wasn’t love at first sight. “I most remember thinking, ‘Oh my God, he’s really, really sick. I hope he doesn’t want to shake my hand,’” Imes said. “I was there to get a job.” For Borden, who had pneumonia that day, it was love at first. “I looked over and I thought she’s really pretty, and by the end of the day I thought I’d ask her out,” Borden said. “When she came out to say goodbye I was thinking, ‘Wait, turn around! I was going to ask you

out!’” Eventually, Borden got his chance through the casting director of the theater. The director knew Imes and gave Borden her email address. “I think I was really straightforward,” Borden said. “Nothing special in that sense, I didn’t try any tacky poetry.” Borden and Imes, now an adjunct professor, have been together since that summer of 2009 and married in August 2011. There are challenges to being married to your co-worker. It’s work to not talk about work, but having a built-in substitute is a luxury, Imes said. She said their relationship is ironic; she wasn’t even supposed to be in Lincoln. Imes had been working in New York City as an actress, but had to come home for a family emergency. “It was an enormous change,” Imes said. “I worked all over the world and I can’t believe that I had to come back to Lincoln to be in a play to
meet my husband. I came back here, and here he was.” Borden said he was surprised. He never expected to meet anyone special at the college. “It was never my plan. But the fact that the university is full of smart women is a good thing,” Borden said. Imes said even if it wouldn’t have worked out, she would still be here at UNL. “I love it,” Imes said. “Now my mom and dad are here, we’re here, and my sister is here so I can see my nephew. Everyone enjoys having the whole family move back.” Imes said that her and Borden are paper pregnant. They’ve filed all the adoption paperwork to have a child; all that’s left is the baby. “We’re the kind of people that thought ‘What the hell, let’s add a little drama to our lives,’” said Imes. news@ dailynebraskan.com

UNL director serves on concussion research committee
Dennis Molfese, director of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior, served as one of 14 on a National Academy of Sciences committee that investigated sportsrelated concussions in youth. The Committee on Sports-Related Concussions in Youth released a report in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday. The committee called for a national surveillance system for monitoring how often these concussions occur in people ages 15 to 21, studies of short and long-term consequences and additional research into equipment improvement and rules changes that could reduce the risk. Molfese said the most concerning finding is that much remains unknown about concussions. Rest is commonly prescribed, but there is no research to define how long a student athlete should stay off the field and out of the classroom. Too much time out of the classroom could cause slow recovery and cause academic setbacks. A common unsubstantiated belief is that helmets protect against concussions. In reality, helmets protect against skull fractures, not concussions. “Hit counts” (tracking how often an athlete receives a blow to the head) are not proper indicators of future concussions, only the risk of long-term disability. Molfese said concussions are currently diagnosed through symptoms, such as headaches, nausea, disorientation, gait and balance issues. CT and MRI scans don’t detect the damage from concussions. It is also unclear if a person recovers from a concussion. The brain may just restructure to compensate for the damage. It is clear from the committee’s investigation that concussions should not be taken lightly, Molfese said. email@example.com
safety: from 1 hiking or boating. The 12-month training calendar is currently projected through October of 2014. The first seminar of the program is currently planned to take place Nov. 22 at noon, and will cover the topic of overseas-travel safety and will be presented by Nissen. Nissen said the department wanted to reach out to the community on this topic because of the fair amount of people traveling out of the country for the holidays or studying abroad.
“Some students aren’t involved in a structured program for traveling, and our goal is to help them at least figure out the basics,” Nissen said. The cost of the program will be minimum, if anything, Nissen said. “As of right now, it’s costing us nothing,” he said. “The presenters are in-house or are part of a law enforcement agency.” One UNL student said he thinks a safety training program would be beneficial for students.

We want to further our mission of ensuring a peaceful quality of life. That’s what we’re really all about.” Todd duncan unlpd assistant chief
and management major, said the program may help student safety, even though he said he does not think safety is a big issue on campus.
“Honestly, the police already do a pretty good job,” Kumar said. “The training will help people to be prepared for any mishap and
know what to do in case of emergencies.” One topic Kumar would like to see covered is alcohol awareness and what to do in sticky situations. “If someone you’re with gets really intoxicated, it’s important to know what to do and how to handle them safely,” Kumar said. Duncan said he hopes the program will help to spread the police department’s message of safety and awareness. “We want to further our mission of ensuring a peaceful quality
of life,” Duncan said. “That’s what we’re really all about.” Duncan said the department plans to promote the event through social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter. He said they are also exploring options of promotions through UNL Today and Blackboard. When the calendar is finalized within the next few weeks, it will be posted for public viewing at training.unl.edu. news@ dailynebraskan.com

Thorson said he was always intrigued by the generosity and hospitality of the locals despite their severe poverty. “The trips for these students are always life changing,” Thorson said, adding that students seeing the extreme differences between the American standard of living and the standard in Ethiopia is a very eye-opening experience. “Every student was touched by the faith and positive attitudes everyone had about their futures, despite the odds against them,”
Red Mango, one of Nebraska’s spots for frozen yogurt, has temporarily closed its Lincoln and Omaha locations, while the locations in Grand Island and Kearney remain open. The Lincoln location near 14th and P streets has a sign that says “Temporarily closed until further notice.

The Lincoln location opened on Jan. 21, 2011. The Daily Nebraskan went out and asked students their thoughts on the temporary closing of the Lincoln location.

evictions: from 1 evictions are students who didn’t use their rooms and took up residence somewhere else without ending their residence hall agreement. Students who need additional paperwork for financial aid needs
are directed to the Office of Finance Aid to correct any problems. Staff at Student Accounts work closely with both the financial aid office and housing to minimize the number of evictions. “It’s not because we want to
throw our students out,” McCurdy said. “It’s because we need our students to be financially responsible, and this is a tool that we use.” McCurty said there are other schools who choose to cancel students’ registration instead of going
the eviction route. The problem with canceling a school registration, however, is that students are no long eligible for financial aid, putting students in a catch-22 situation – aid is needed to pay the fees, but they can’t get the aid
because they aren’t enrolled, she said. “That’s not necessarily a good situation to put a student in,” McCurdy said. “So the evictions, while it isn’t any more of an exciting tool, it is actually a better
situation for the student to be in because they are still enrolled in classes, and they still have that financial aid and deal with that financial situation.” news@ dailynebraskan.com

Take advantage of UNLPD’s safety training classes Nebraska has long identified itself as the home of “The Good Life.” As part of this community goal of healthy, happy living, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Police Department is beginning to offer safety training classes to students and faculty. The DN Editorial Board encourages students to take advantage of this opportunity to gain useful information. UNLPD has assessed student needs and hopes these talks will complement its current programs. UNLPD in-house staff and visiting law enforcement officers plan to give talks on subjects relevant to student life. These topics include tips for summer outdoor activities, international travel and alcohol consumption. Students tend to feel pretty safe on campus and in surrounding areas. This is a fortunate aspect of our community and part of the draw of UNL as a school. Common sense and awareness can go a long way in keeping yourself safe. Learning how to handle yourself is certain situations is another step in that process. There will always be unexpected accidents and emergency situations we should be mindful of. The talks will cover a range of situations everyone should consider. There is also little to no projected cost for attendees. They’re scheduled to begin Nov. 22 and are slated through October 2014. The full calendar of dates and topics will be available at training.unl.edu when it’s finalized in the next few weeks. No one should pass up learning how to better protect themselves and their friends. Be mindful and help keep UNL a happy campus. firstname.lastname@example.org

Kick gender stereotypes to the curb
’m not saying they’re for everyone, but don’t knock them until you try them. High heels — do men hate them, love them or even notice them at all? That’s really none of our concern. If you’re wearing high heels for men, you’re already starting out on the wrong foot. If done right, heels can be the perfect accessory to an incomplete outfit, a way to show individuality and professionalism, and, yes, to walk like a badass. In the right context, they can be professional and pretty without being a cry for attention. People who are tall do better in the workplace. They have more confidence, perform better and are seen as better leaders. This is especially true for men, but holds for women as well. And when the average woman in America is 5 feet 4 inches, is it really surprising that many turn to heels to get a leg up? Japanese men react to their smaller average height by buying shoes that give them an extra 7 centimeters, yet backlash continues throughout workplaces, schools and society against women who choose stems over sneakers. Women have many more options for business attire than men, making it much more difficult to determine what is professional and what is inappropriate. Jorge Cortell, the CEO of a Katerson Systems, a healthcare company, chose to ridicule a woman for wearing high heels at a demo event via Twitter. Through his hashtag, he insinuated that she was less intelligent for doing so because of the risk of foot injuries. Although heels, if worn excessively, can cause foot issues in the long run, flats are worse on the feet. They rub horribly, never fit quite right and fall under the false advertisement of being comfortable. I constantly flex my feet to stay into those beautiful ballerina shoes, generally with the result of one shoe flopping off the back. The right pair of heels should be comfortable enough to stride like a boss, snapping necks and cashing checks. Men aren’t scorned in the same way for their fashion choices because they have none. Men have fewer wardrobe options and their
Kayla simon wardrobes aren’t considered the source of their power. Women in politics, like Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama, are judged for their hair and clothing choices while their policies lay forgotten. I think this comes from a mistaken prevailing view that high heels are related to sex appeal. By choosing shoes that are inherently feminine, some believe these women have opened themselves up for conversation on their gender. But a shoe can never define the complexities of a person. Judging a woman’s work performance based on a fashion choice you don’t agree with is like arguing over who has the better color scheme for a PowerPoint. High heels can be sexy, classy or both. Unless women cover themselves from head to toe, men will notice them in the workplace. It’s simple biology, and there’s nothing wrong with that. There is something wrong with trying to make women like men in the workplace, however. It becomes dangerous when we try to interpret the other gender’s intentions. Women are individuals, and we don’t all think the same way. “Men’s Health” very kindly made a list for men pointing out what women are thinking when they dress in certain ways. For heels, women think, “Is he checking out my butt?” The article gives ways to flatter her based on what she’s thinking. Not everyone wants to wear heels and not everyone wants to wear a dress. As a feminist, I just want everyone to have the choice. High heels aren’t a symbol of the patriarchy anymore. Stars such as Lady Gaga have taken them to a new level of self-expression, freed from sexual expectations. Women today
aren’t forced to wear heels for jobs such as being a flight attendant, and that’s evidence enough of how our society has become more open to women choosing their own styles. We’ve gotten past enforced dress codes; now we need to consider how our thinking patterns are continuing to affect women. The discriminatory attitudes toward women’s clothing choices begin even farther back, starting in school and continuing through college. Boys are praised for suits, button-downs and khakis, while women are judged for wearing skirts or too much makeup to class. In high school, I bought a pair of wedge boots that I thought were awesome and was asked repeatedly by male friends “why I felt I had to wear them.” One female teacher told me I shouldn’t wear my beloved boots because I was (admittedly) tottering down the hall, and they would ruin my feet. Since when is your opinion over my footwear more important than my own? I wear them because I love the way they look. The first time you wear heels in public, you will look awkward as hell, but it’s worth it to stomp around, eye-to-eye with boys you usually have to look up to. So ladies, next time you think about tearing down your fellow females for wearing high heels to class, remember that they’re people, too. They’re not “sluts” or “attention whores” just because you prefer rolling out of bed to dressing up in the morning. It really doesn’t take long to change from sweatpants to jeans or a skirt. One isn’t necessarily better than the other. If it makes someone feel good about themselves, I see no harm in letting it go, even if you disagree with the choice she made. Whether heels are an occasional treat or an everyday affair, they’re not representative of anything besides the superficial. Feminists are still fighting battles for birth control, civil rights and the right to stay home without being judged. Heels shouldn’t be on that agenda.

Christian persecution becoming problem in U.S.
ur founding fathers wrote a constitution, which is supposed to guide our country. It was fair, well founded and is still considered the best-written legal document in history. Unfortunately, a legally binding document is only as good as those who follow it. The constitution is supposed to be enforced by the people. After all, the United States is a republic first and a democracy second. However, somewhere along the way, we’ve lost the ability to require those we vote for to do the right thing. Our constitution is being trampled upon, and the religion a majority of our country’s principles were founded on is being persecuted. The Pew Research Center said that Christianity is persecuted in more countries than any other faith or religion, and this includes the United States. Expanding freedoms of the LGBT community and slow strides toward greater tolerance of other religions are positive movements in our country. However, they’ve gone so far that the persecution of Christianity is on the rise. Some people’s religions teach widespread acceptance, and this has allowed those outside the majority to have great
freedom. But religious groups are beginning to pay for their kindness. Christians should tolerate others, and those who don’t are a disgrace to Christianity. However, there is a point at which this tolerance goes too far, and that point comes when the majority begins to lose their own freedoms. Recently, there have been multiple accounts of Christians being put down by others. A report by Texas-based Liberty Institute and the Washington-based Family Research Council said that Christian persecution is on the rise. It has never been worse than under the current administration. This report details a valedictorian not being allowed to reference Jesus and pastors not being allowed to pray to God at memorial services. Mainstream media ignores these incidences for the most part, except for the occasional report one will see on Fox News and some thirdparty sources. It’s appalling that the news won’t report these occurrences. What’s even more appalling is that people don’t see what they’re doing to each other or how their mad desire to enforce their will is hurting others. If you are an atheist or part of the LGBT community, you demand acceptance and understanding, which is fair.
zach nold Everyone should be treated fairly. But many times, people in those communities take it too far. When one starts butting into the lives of others and demanding they change their private lives, their private businesses and their own beliefs, one goes beyond demanding equality and into a power slide. Where do you think this ends up? It ends with certain leftist radicals stomping on the beliefs of the majority, and all because they can’t understand the concept of staying out of someone else’s business. Most of us have our beliefs and keep our business to ourselves. But when people force their opinions and beliefs onto others, instead of simply sharing them, they’ve gone too far. Who has gone too far? How about members of the LGBT community in Or-
egon who forced a wedding cake bakery to close because it refused to make a cake for a gay couple? The business was privately owned and had the right to refuse service to anyone. The couple filed a complaint stating that the Oregon Equality Act of 2007 protected their rights to buy a wedding cake where they pleased. Unfortunately, this is a broad interpretation of the law. The store owners happened to refuse service because their beliefs didn’t condone gay marriage, and this decision should be respected. But because they happened to have their own, justified opinion, they were forced to shut down and are now under investigation for discrimination. Frankly, this should piss everyone off. Even though this group is a minority of the LGBT community, this is an example of how Christians are having their beliefs persecuted. The gay couple wasn’t denied service because they were of a different race or of a different religion, but because their lifestyle didn’t line up with the owners’ religious practices. There are other wedding cake stores, other places they could’ve gone to get a cake. Yet this LGBT community chose to put its nose in some-
one else’s business and ruined the lives of honest, hard-working Americans. Where else has this occurred? Recently, evangelical Christians and the American Family Association were labeled as domestic hate groups because they supported traditional marriage. They were investigated, though thankfully the investigation has now been halted thanks to some very mindful congressmen. However, this is still outrageous. Where does this administration find the gall to make such accusations? So where does this put our country? Where does this put Christianity? It puts us on the brink, a place between equality and persecution. The idea that we are the “Land of the Free” is diminishing. Soon the minority will be the majority, and the shoe will be on the other foot. Eventually, this circle of persecution has to be stopped. The easiest way to do that is to keep one’s nose out of another’s business. This country was founded and driven by Christian principles and Christians have shown that they tolerate and respect other beliefs. And they deserve the same treatment in return.

Gabriella Martinez-Garro dn Tech N9ne simply doesn’t stop. The Kansas City-born rapper has become notorious for his rowdy shows, endless tour dates and enormous catalog of music. The Daily Nebraskan was able to talk to Tech N9ne close to the end of his “Something to Remember” tour before his Nov. 1 show at the Bourbon. Daily Nebraskan: So how has your tour been going so far? Tech N9ne: I am at the end of the tour, and it’s been explosive. This one is the most lyrical; this one is the most talented, I think.

If I hear a dope beat, the music just moves in my blood, and if the music comes on and I’m on stage, even if I’m tired — like, right now — if “Einstein,” came on, and people were out there to watch, I would come alive.

After returning from Los Angeles, senior Cory Soukup decided to bring his comedic experiences back with him. “While I was in L.A., I was going to a lot of improv shows and comedy things, and I saw this whole different side of theater that we just really don’t have in Lincoln,” Soukup said. With that, International Waters began. International Waters is a “sketchy comedy show” coming to the Haymarket Theatre on Sunday at 8 p.m. The production is a collaboration of sketches compiled and written by Soukup and nine other University of Nebras- ing one another. “It wasn’t hard to get people ka-Lincoln students. excited about it initially, because “I knew we had the people and the talent around,” Soukup it was an excuse for us all to hang said. “I knew that this could hap- out and write funny things,” Soukup said. “We pen and be a really make each good thing.

In fact, once he received the text from Soukup, he shook his head and laughed. “I was, like, sure, why not because he is one of my greater friends,” Blankenau said. “I never really thought that this would come into fruition at all.

TEDxLincoln highlighted by residents Cassie Kernick dn This year’s Lincoln TEDx event is set to take place at Nebraska Educational Telecommunications Friday at 10 a.m. The event will showcase a wide array of speakers presenting on a varied list of topics but sharing one common thing: Lincoln. Only a few years ago, TED talks had little awareness in the public consciousness. Today, TED is an internationally recognized organization known for widely accessible and impactful lectures. As these speaking events have grown in popularity, individual cities and countries have begun hosting their own version of these events. These are known as TEDx events, the “x” signifying that it is an independently organized TED event. Because TEDxLincoln is operated independently, an entire team based in Lincoln is responsible for the event from start to finish. A team supports Randy Bretz, the head curator, and Shaun Vanneman, the co-curator, to make sure the event runs smoothly. When describing just what obtaining the TEDx distinction means, Bretz said, “Shaun Vanneman and I are the license holders for TEDxLincoln and TEDxYouth@Lincoln. In that role, we are responsible for all aspects of organizing and producing the events.” Those aspects include finding venues, establishing themes, finding speakers, fundraising and promoting the event. Lincoln has been hosting TEDx events since 2011. With the success of this year’s TEDxYouth event that took place at Lincoln High School on Aug. 17, many are eager to see what this November event will hold. Whether they were born and raised here or are living here now, all of the TEDxLincoln speakers have some ties back to Lincoln. There are a few University of Nebraska-Lincoln professors scheduled to speak. Clint! Runge, UNL advertising
courtesy photo and public relations professor and co-founder and managing creative director of Archrival, is one of them. “Some friends mentioned that I should apply,” Runge said. “It’s an application process where you submit your idea for your talk, and after a series of discussions, the TEDx crew finds the best mix of talks for the day.” While the Lincoln TEDx website offers condensed biographies and subtle indications of what one will be speaking on, Runge’s offers no clues. When asked about it, he would divulge no details. “It’s a surprise,” Runge said. UNL junior Shelbi Bretz was much more eager to share. “I am speaking about a specific journey that I’ve been on for the past two years,” she said. “I have a strong belief that everyone is interesting and that everyone has something to say that’s worth hearing, but we don’t always listen. I, specifically, don’t always listen. So I’ve made it my goal to have deep, connecting conversations with people who are different from me. Bretz said she strives to make human connections in every conversation. “In my talk, I speak about this journey and what I have learned through my conversations with so many beautifully different individuals,” Bretz said. While Bretz is the youngest to be speaking at the event, embracing youth and what they can accomplish
is one of her main points. “It has been really hard for me to recognize that I can’t let my age be a defining factor for my abilities and talents — and I believe this is true for others as well, especially students,” Bretz said. Another UNL professor, Ann Chang, will also be speaking about overcoming limitations. However, unlike most commonly heard messages, she’s encouraging the idea of not putting so much pressure on meeting goals. “I’m speaking from personal experience,” Chang said. “It’s not what one usually hears, I know.” The wide variety of speakers create a flow of ideas with no transitions necessary. Chang will speak and will be followed by John Fulwider, who will share a completely different set of ideas. Fulwider will be speaking on his struggle with coming to terms with infertility. “I was infertile for four years and the grief led to crying and panic attacks at the supermarket,” Fulwider said. “My hope is that my talk will make men feel comfortable with experiencing grief.” While the topics spoken upon may be vastly different, there is little variation in the immense amounts of time each speaker is putting into preparing for the event. Educational researcher Brad McLain said he uses any free time possible to prepare. “I’ve victimized all my friends
to sit and listen to multiple versions of my talk and then blast me with critiques. That, and the 2013 Lincoln TEDx speakers all met a few weeks ago for a rough draft run-through.” Bretz has a totally different way of preparing in order to keep her speech genuine and spontaneous. “Preparation for the event has been more stressful than I anticipate the event itself being. I chose not to write any of my talk down — a tool I’m using to retain my passion and enthusiasm for my topic. Because of this, it has been difficult to memorize my talk and make sure I’m saying the same thing every time,” she said. McLain said TED events are all about creating a buzz on a certain topic to provoke thought and discussion within communities. “The world is pluralism of people and ideas and these talks provide only the merest glimpses of different perspectives on the human experience and the exploration of our world,” McLain said. “Thoughts and ideas can change the world. TED is inherently optimistic. I love that.” Runge encourages listeners to remember what the local community has to offer. “There are so many people in Lincoln with interesting ideas and stories,” he said. “TEDx gives them a chance to be heard and I can tell you they are worth hearing. I’ve listened to the rough drafts of the other speakers and they are amazing.” While it’s easier to see the impact these events have on the Lincoln community, curator Randy Bretz is privileged to see the world wide benefits. “One more thing that I’ve gained personally is my connection with an incredible fraternity of TEDx curators around the world,” he said. “There have been more than 8,000 TEDx events in five years, in 150 countries. Together, we’re making an impact on our world.” arts@ dailynebraskan.com
‘Blue Caprice’ features strong performances Sean Stewart DN “Blue Caprice,” director Alexandre Moors’ debut film, tackles some startlingly dark subject matter. The film follows the 2002 Beltway sniper attacks by a man and his adopted son on 15 random victims throughout the Washington, D.C., area. The snipers had cut a small hole in the trunk of their blue Caprice to shoot out of. After 20 days, the pair was finally apprehended sleeping in a rest area. Films based on events like these have the potential to become exploitative or simple good and evil surface narratives. Moors and screenwriter R.F.I. Porto, however, soberly approaches the events from the point of view of the shooters. In fact, almost the entirety of “Blue Caprice” is set before the killings begin and once they do, the violence is respectfully left offscreen. These delicate choices transform the narrative into an unsettling portrait of the molding of a killer. The story begins when Lee’s mother abandons him at their impoverished Caribbean home. Lee meets John, who immediately takes a liking to him and eventually returns to America with him. John adopts Lee as his son and forces him through a series of brutal and demented training exercises. These scenes are where “Blue Caprice” truly matures into an unflinching character study. Isaiah Washington is disturbingly riveting as John. As John’s aggravations with his ex-wife and American society drive him to mold Lee into a
courtesy photo twisted executioner to use for his purposes, Washington magnificently portrays his descent into moral depravity. Without warning, his performance becomes a force to be reckoned with. Tequan Richmond gives a quieter, but strong performance as the younger of the pair. His reserve manages to capture the character’s simmering disposition. Constantly influenced by his father figure, Lee’s descent,compared with John’s,is more frayed and conflicted and all the more tragic as a result. The film manages to convey the strain placed on Lee. It’s likely no film could truly encapsulate the making of a monster, but “Blue Caprice” comes pretty close. Where it does stumble, to some level, is its inability to apply the same lens to John as the one it focuses on Lee. John’s influence over Lee is ex-
amined closely, but his motivations for his machinations are only peripherally explored. His enraged and bitter rants to Lee serve to potently explicate Lee’s transformation, but the full nature of their origin is never entirely delved into. The film’s score by Colin Stetson and Sarah Neufeld — of indie rock band Arcade Fire — is aptly disquieting. It manages to tuck itself in the background nicely, emerging in the film’s most emotionally wrenching and sinister scenes with real weight. Some scenes are effectively left silent, only making the score’s forceful sections more haunting. “Blue Caprice” is not light entertainment. It isn’t even entertainment. Despite its flaws, it’s a compellingly devastating portrayal of the evil man is capable of and the ways it is so often
groomed in the world. It’s profoundly disturbing, which is exactly how this subject matter should feel. arts@ dailynebraskan.com
‘The Summit’ fails to craft a believable story Cinematography can’t make up for the film’s questionable storytelling Vince Moran DN In 2008, 11 mountain climbers died on the second highest mountain in the world, K2, on the border between Pakistan and China, making it the deadliest day in the history of the dangerous mountain. Nick Ryan’s documentary “The Summit” documents this strange and disastrous day by using archive footage taken by the climbers, news report footage, fictional reenactments and interviews with the surviving members of the team. The way Ryan edits all of this together makes it extremely difficult to determine the difference between the actual footage and the newly filmed staged footage. I used just as much effort trying to determine whether a particular shot was real or not as I did trying to take in everything else the documentary was trying to say. Because it is so hard to tell the “real” from the “fake,” the film as a whole is put into question and the viewer is suspicious, not only of the artificial footage, but of all the footage. The editing only enhances the problem of deciphering what is actually “true.” It jumps around way too much, appears unorganized and retells segments of the story several times before finally putting it in the correct context within the chain of events. For instance, there is an interview that plays throughout the film with Italian climber Walter Bonatti, who was part of the Italian team that first reached the summit of K2 in 1954. It seems the filmmakers couldn’t quite decide what they wanted to do with his story, but kept it anyway, throwing segments of it in every few minutes of the film, often interrupting for no apparent reason the 2008 story they were focusing on. What makes this portion of the documentary even more troubling is that it sounds like Bonatti is reading a prepared statement for the interview. This is probably because the man speaking is not Bonatti, who passed away in 2011, but an actor reading a script, though the filmmakers do not make this obvious until the end of the film. Footage of Bonatti’s expedition is also shown while he is speaking, which is, once again, a creation of the filmmakers, meaning that nearly every aspect of Bonatti’s story in “The Summit” is less real than it is made out to be. For all these reasons, it appears the filmmakers are more interested in telling an adventure story and in entertaining an audience than in exploring some of the fascinating issues about the perils of mountain

climbing. The musical score is thrill inducing, and even the bulleted facts on screen are done in an attempt to heighten suspense. While there should be some room for these tactics, the film spends too much effort trying to be exciting and, with a couple exceptions, fails to respectfully represent the deaths of the 11 climbers. The greatest aspect of “The Summit” is the cinematography, which is awe-inducing and does an astonishing job of capturing the sheer immensity and natural power of the mountain. The footage taken upon K2 by the climbers is poignant and staggering, and the image of the shadow of the mountain draping over the breathtaking scenery is unforgettable. The view from the mountain and its surrounding landscape was amazing, but I was perfectly fine seeing it on the big screen with no intention risking my life to experience it myself. Many people view these climbers, whether they successfully make it up and down or not, as crazy, and the film does little to address this. The filmmakers never ask their interviewees to explain why they do what they do or, even more amazingly, why they continue to do it even after such a traumatic experience. Instead of looking at the details of the people who went through this tragedy, the filmmakers are more interested in retelling what happened, who was a hero and who was to blame. While it is necessary to uncover what actually happened on the mountain, what is even more interesting are the stories of people who went through this experience and their explanation of how, even after seeing 11 people die, they find it in themselves to continue their adventurous and dangerous lifestyle. arts@ dailynebraskan.com

Laura Marling “Once I Was An Eagle” hannah eads dn Laura Marling’s “Once I Was An Eagle” was released in late May as I was trying to figure out what to do with myself before I left for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, 13 hours away from my hometown. So for the next three months, I listened to her most recent album. It’s not necessarily an album someone can “jam” to, but it is a conversation piece once the 16 songs end, It’s hard to tear oneself away from the realness she puts into each song, especially the first four, a medley with a balance of soft and strong, lyrically and musically. The first of the four songs, “Take The Night Off,” starts with her soft strumming and immediately brings back the theme of beasts from her previous album, as she sings about the power of her lust, despite how that person has and will affect her. “Wouldn’t ask you even to behave for me, I know there’s no hope in hell.” That flows into “I Was An Eagle,” where she begins to sound stronger, singing about the destruction of love and how she will never be a “victim of romance or circumstance.” Compared with her previous albums, “Once I Was An Eagle” almost sounds optimistic, and it definitely sounds like she has found peace within herself and grown comfortable in her skin. Even during the course of the album, she seems to grow stronger. With songs such as “You Know,” it’s hard to pinpoint exactly where she’s coming from and what her meaning is, but that doesn’t mean her music isn’t honest. She mentions how hard it is to be a mother and implies that she might not want to be one, singing “I might not know what that’s like, but I’m glad that you know.” This album has a lot of sass to it, in her voice and in her music. It comes through specifically with
will start planning for more comedic sketches. In the future, Soukup wants to add a variety of comedic acts. “This first show, we’re playing it safe,” Soukup said. “For this first one, I assembled a collection of artists of people that I know that are funny and creative. Hopefully, in the future we can eventually add videos, stand-ups and readings into it.” Soukup hopes that the show will have a good turnout and a good audience reaction, but even if it doesn’t, he will still enjoy performing with his friends on Sunday. “We get to goof around and do something stupid on stage that’s really fun,” he said. “We
have all of these ridiculous things that we think are funny and hopefully people will laugh. But I mean really the goal is to do something fun and do something that Lincoln hasn’t ever seen before.” To Blankenau, the International Waters sketch was a way for him to bond with people who shared a similar sense of “derpy” humor. But, he also feels compelled to perform the best he can. “Now it’s just to the point where everything that is written, and we know who wrote it, so you just feel obligated to do the best for their purposes and for just the group,” Blankenau said. arts@ dailynebraskan.com

the dark guitar-picking in “When Were You Happy?” and lines about not being able to breathe the more she thinks about her beliefs. The album ranges from Bob Dylan-like folk in “Master Hunter” to the upbeat “Where Can I Go?” with an organ playing in the background to sweeter songs, like “Love Be Brave,” but her music can’t be defined as any one genre. “Once I Was An Eagle” is complicated, but it has some of the most calming effects than any music I’ve ever heard. arts@ dailynebraskan.com

tech n9ne: from 5 world, we’re connected. DN: Your shows have become almost legendary for how rowdy everyone gets and how much fun they are. Would you say you’ve worked to evolve that environment for your shows or do you think it’s just something that happened naturally because of how powerful your music is? TN: The music is powerful, but as we started doing shows, back in the day, we started noticing what the fans wanted to see and what they wanted to hear. You have to learn the songs over time, and we started tailoring the shows to drop out songs where there wasn’t crowd participation. DN: As you start releasing new music and going on tour with your newest material, how does it feel to see people singing your lyrics back to you, especially since your songs are so personal? TN: It’s so wonderful to see the new music rocking hard like the old music that has been around for a mighty, mighty long time. Every night on stage, after I get through doing “B.I.T.C.H.,” which stands for “breaking into colored houses,” I see it. And that’s a brand-spanking new song, and people already know all the lyrics. I mean, it’s a beautiful thing to see them feel that. That means I’m probably going to be old as hell doing this. DN: Let’s talk about some of your new material that is coming out. I know you just released a few new tracks from your upcoming album, “Therapy,” which will be coming out soon. What can people expect? TN: Yeah, we released two of ‘em thus far. One called “Pickup” and one called, “Public School,” and it’s an appetizer for people.
DN: In previous interviews you’ve listed both old-school rock music and hip-hop as influences. How do those styles of music help combine to create the style of music you release today? TN: It’s no problem for me to use those styles together because I’ve been doing it since I’ve started. I mean, I love rock, I love rap, I love jazz, I love blues, I love R&B and all that, so it’s not something I try to do. I just grew up listening to all of those types of music and styles. That’s what I’m going to do. It just gets in there, everything I do is a part of my music and rock was one of them, hip-hop was one of them. DN: The music industry is pretty notorious for constantly bringing in and creating young and fresh talent. Do you ever feel the need to change or redefine your image in order to stay relevant and fresh? TN: Listen to me. I am the guy, I’m 41 years old, face painted, who said “Fuck the industry,” a long time ago. We’re going to do it our way. Hell no, I
would never conform to stay relevant. None of that shit. I am “Mr. Fuck You Man,” in case you didn’t know. DN: One of the things that sets you apart from a lot of rappers is the fact that your music comes out of your own, independent label. A lot of rappers have been catching heat recently for music that acts as almost an advertisement and promotion of something. How do you feel about that? TN: I think more power to you if you rap about Vitamin Water and you’ve got millions of dollars. I think it’s more power to you if you’ve got RocaWear clothing and it blows up. I think any way you can make money and take care of your loved ones and children, I think it’s a beautiful thing. DN: What do you hope that people walk away from your show thinking, especially if this is their first Tech N9ne show? TN: I want them to say, “Tech N9ne is crazy, it was a party, and we can’t wait to come back.” arts@ dailynebraskan.com

Husker wrestling opens season No. 12 Huskers go to South Dakota for Warren Williamson/ Daktronics Open austin pistulka dn The Nebraska wrestling team will head to Brookings, S.D., to kick off the 2013-2014 wrestling season. This will be the first time wrestling team members will be able to hit the mats against opponents other than their own teammates. In this meet, the whole team competes, so this is a big tournament for those trying to prove themselves. As for the coaches, it’s a chance to see what the team will be like for the rest of the season. “We are going there to compete and see where we are at and test ourselves against great competition,” coach Mark Manning said. “I know that Missouri is going to be there and South Dakota State, North Dakota State and some other small schools will be there, but this is really for ourselves going there and wrestling to our potential.” For some the first meet of the year brings a slight nervousness, while for others it’s just old hat. “When I was younger there was (nerves) back when I was a freshman,” junior Robert Kokesh said. “But not so much no more. I’ve been in the program for a few years, and I’ve been getting more accustomed to what I need

Junior 174-pounder Robert Kokesh pinned two of his three opponents on his way to a first-place finish at the 2012 Warren Williamson/Daktronics Open. The first meet of the year is the culmination of all of the hard work put in during summer. All of the extra running, the lifting and the pure torture of eating celery comes to fruition in the first match. “The hardest part for me is the mental aspect of wrestling,” Kokesh said. “Wrestling is a very physical and mental sport. In fact it is just as physical as it is mental. I think guys get down on themselves for a bad practice or a bad match and we got to get past that to reach our ultimate goal at the end of March.” The coaches believe it’s not
to do before my matches to get ready to go. I would say that for a lot of the guys. Nerves are something that you put on yourself. It’s just a made-up thing. You get nervous because you make yourself nervous. It’s just going out there knowing you’ve worked hard all week and putting it all out there.” Kokesh’s teammate junior Jake Sueflohn feels the same way about nerves, he said. “It’s just having confidence in yourself, preparing all week, and watching film on these guys. When it’s time to go I’m not that nervous at all,” Sueflohn said.
the mental or physical part of wrestling that is the hardest but the lifestyle that goes with. “The challenge is maintaining the lifestyle that will allow you to be successful,” Manning said. “The demands of being a student athlete are high, and you couple that with a very difficult one on one sport it’s tough. It’s a battle of wills. You got to make weight. Nutrition is important. Getting your school work in, dieting, living the lifestyle, getting enough sleep, there is just a lot that goes into being successful.” sports@ dailynebraskan.com
football practice notes Huskers out for Saturday
Nebraska will face Northwestern this Saturday a little short-handed. Coach Bo Pelini said after Thursday’s practice that senior quarterback Taylor Martinez will be out for Saturday’s game, while senior tight end Jake Long is doubtful. Pelini also said junior wide receiver Jamal Turner ’s status is 50-50 for Saturday. In place of the injured Martinez, Pelini said backup quarterbacks Tommy Armstrong Jr. and Ron Kellogg III looked good this week in preparation for Northwestern. The Huskers will also be without junior wide receiver Tyler Wullenwaber this weekend. After Wednesday’s practice, Wullenwaber tweeted that he would no longer be able to play football. “Well, it’s been a great ride! But my body doesn’t want me to play football anymore, and it’s time to start a new chapter in my life,” Wullenwaber ’s tweet read. Pelini said Wullenwaber talked to him after practice on Wednesday and confirmed that the junior receiver is done with football for good. “His shoulder is still bothering him too much,” Pelini said. “He doesn’t think he can play through it. It’s too bad, he’s a great kid and I feel bad for him.”
Rose, Banderas ‘look good’
During Monday’s press conference, Pelini said he intended to let Josh Banderas and Michael Rose fill the middle linebacker positions this week, while switching David Santos to the linebacker spot. After Thursday’s practice, Pelini said the players have done well throughout the week. “I thought they took command,” Pelini said. “Now we have to put it on film on Saturday. I thought we had a good week. I liked our week of preparation. I like our plan. Now it comes down to execution.” Though not injury-related, Pelini said redshirt freshman linebacker Jared Afalava will not see the field this Saturday. Nebraska’s defense gave up 430 yards of total offense in the loss to Minnesota last weekend. Still, Pelini said the standards have not changed for the defensive unit going forward. “I want them to execute well,” Pelini said. “I want them to communicate and (I want) guys to play fast, hard, decisive and do their job. That’s what I’m looking for. That’s what equates to success. Nothing less will be acceptable.” —Compiled by Kyle Cummings

We also started adding in some friendly team competitions to start heightening the intensity of practices.” Against Navy, freshman Lauren Phillips led air rifle with a career-high score of 585, while sophomore Denise Martin led in smallbore with a career-high final of 584. Junior Kelsey Hansen, who scored 579 in air rifle, is hoping the different aspects of her game she practiced in the past week will help her in this match. “We’ve focused a lot on the process and certain steps we’re supposed to do, and that should change over to different ranges no matter where you are,” Hansen said. “It’s just getting accustomed to the different atmosphere that matters.” With the match against UTMartin being the first away meet,

A win against the Hoosiers will give Nebraska the most conference wins the team has had since 1999. Indiana is third in the Big Ten with a 6-4 conference record, a spot that it will try to hold with Penn State also having a 6-4 record against Big Ten teams. The Hoosiers are riding a three-game winning streak that includes a 1-0 win against Wisconsin on Sunday. The game will also be senior
day for the team. On the offensive end, midfielder Stacy Bartels and forward Jordan Jackson will be competing in their final game as Husker players. Defensively, the Huskers will soon be without Kylie Greischar, Maritza Hayes, Ari Romero and goalkeeper Emma Stevens. Depending on whether the Huskers will be a host site in the NCAA Tournament, the Indiana game may be the last time the soccer team will take the field at the oncampus location. Next season, the team is moving to a new soccer facility on the former state fairgrounds.
Nebraska will be competing in its second Big Ten tournament next week in Champaign, Ill., and with a No. 1 seed on the line on Friday, a win against Indiana is crucial. “It’s pretty important,” Odermann said. “It’s not only for a confidence boost, but for everyone else to see that, it really puts a target on our backs and so we obviously have to go in knowing that so it helps us not drop off right away.

Nebraska, picked to win the Big Ten on Thursday, plays Nebraska-Kearney on Sunday in Lincoln natasha rausch dn The Nebraska women’s basketball team will face the University of Nebraska at Kearney in its 12th annual exhibition game at 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the Pinnacle Bank Arena. Although the season hasn’t begun, this will be the second women’s basketball game played in the new arena. The first was played last Sunday against Pittsburg State, and the Huskers won 98-47. Since the first exhibition game, Husker coach Connie Yori said the team has been working to improve ball handling to prepare for the game against Kearney and future games. “Turnovers are a concern right now,” said Yori, who is entering her 12th year as coach. “I think we did a pretty good job against Pittsburg State of taking care of the ball. Particularly the first 35 minutes of the game. Obviously, the level of our competition is

niors,” Harris said. “In this kind of competition, you want your seniors to stand up and lead the mental approach and then get out there and set the tone of the race.” Despite the fact that several athletes on the women’s team have dealt with injuries this season, Harris said nobody will be sitting out this weekend’s meet. The team’s most recent meet was two weekends ago at the Tim Young Invitational hosted by South Dakota State, where the men won and the women finished in second place. In that meet, several younger athletes stepped up to the plate and had some of their best races of the season. Sophomore Jacob Olson won the meet, with a time of 25:01.31 and freshman Joe Harter came in second place with a time of 25:07.25. Freshman Anna Peer came in third place overall and was the first Husker to cross the finish line with a time of 18:12.58. In that race, the women had five runners place in the top 10, with Andrade finishing second on the team and fifth overall. It was one of the few races she’s been able to race in this season because of leg injuries. Coming off that meet, Harris said he has high hopes as they go into this weekend. “We can take nine athletes,” Harris said. “They’re all going to race, and they’re all ready to race.” sports@ dailynebraskan.com

ask linebackers and special teams coach Ross Els, who described Minnesota’s offense as “the best running game we’ve faced.” Although they may be expected to turn things around and add a sixth win to their column Saturday, it won’t come by being laidback, according to coach Bo Pelini. “This is a good football team. It’s a well-coached football team,” Pelini said Monday. “They know what they are doing. They are go-
ing to stay with what they do.” In their games against California, Syracuse, Western Michigan and Maine, the Wildcats put up a 40 spot twice, including a 48-point performance against Syracuse Sept. 7. Although Pat Fitzgerald’s squad is currently riding a fourgame losing streak, Pelini realizes that the team is due for an offensive breakout, he said. “They are going to play really similar to what we saw last week
in a different way,” he said. “Maybe different personnels and that type of thing. We’re going to have our work cut out for us Saturday.” If there’s one thing that’s been Nebraska’s Achilles’ heel this season, it’s been its inconsistency to execute tackles on defense. The Huskers allowed UCLA and Minnesota quarterbacks to pass for a combined 433 passing yards. However, on the ground they’ve been plagued by its opposing running backs with 245

and 224 yard performances, respectively. And although Northwestern has four running backs with more than 250 yards rushing this season, including leading I-back Treyvon Green with 473, it’s the senior quarterback who may pose the biggest threat for Nebraska this Saturday, according to John Papuchis. “Obviously Kain Colter is a vital part of their offense,” the Nebraska defensive coordinator said. “He is a dynamic playmaker.” Although he battled injuries midway through the season, Col-
ter has carried the ball outside of the pocket for 323 yards for four touchdowns, and is fifth in the conference with an 156.4 passing efficiency. Despite the Huskers defense’s lackluster performance last Saturday on the road, Papuchis said he sees no reason why it can’t halt Northwestern’s quarterback and improve its record. “I think the best thing is sometimes just getting back out there and start going again,” Papuchis said. “There is not a lot of time to waste licking your wounds and feeling sorry for yourself. You got
to learn from your mistakes.” For all the doubters that feel the loss last weekend put Nebraska out of the conference championship contentions, Enunwa said to look at what they did last year. “Last year, we came back 5-2, we won the rest of our games and got to the Big Ten Championship Game,” the senior captain said. “There’s no reason we can’t do that again this year. Don’t think that just because we lost (to Minnesota) that all of a sudden the season is over.” sports@ dailynebraskan.com

f Nebraska fans were to simply look at the record of Nebraska’s next opponent coming to Memorial Stadium, they may assume that the home team should leave victorious. Not only win, but by a landslide. On Saturday, Northwestern will enter its matchup against the Huskers (5-2, 2-1 Big Ten Conference) with an even 4-4 overall record and a last place position in the Legends Division 0-4. But if there’s one lesson fans were taught last weekend, it’s that there’s no such thing as a sure win. In Nebraska’s press conference Monday, senior wide receiver Quincy Enunwa said Minnesota just outplayed and took advantage of the Huskers’ blunders last weekend. “Minnesota played their hearts out,” he said. “They played a great game against us. There were just too many mistakes on our side and obviously when you don’t play a good game, you lose. The Golden Gophers last weekend presented all types of problems in their 34-23 win over Nebraska last weekend. Just

NU to play for conference title With victory against visiting Indiana, Huskers will clinch share of Big Ten championship josh kelly dn This week the No. 18 Nebraska soccer team will conclude its regular season with a matchup at home against Indiana before next week’s Big Ten Conference Tournament. After defeating No. 22 Penn State on Sunday the Huskers are one win away from clinching their first regular-season title in 13 years. “We haven’t won a conference title since 2000 and knowing that it’s on the line Friday makes it really exciting for us,” sophomore midfielder Alyssa Flannery said. “This week we’ve been antsy waiting for Indiana and we’re hoping we can come out on top.” Sunday afternoon Nebraska reaffirmed itself as the best team in the Big Ten after beating Penn State in overtime 3-2. The Nittany Lions have won the last five Big Ten Championships and are currently fourth in the Big Ten standings. After a win full of thrills, the players realized how close they

The No. 11 Nebraska volleyball team will finish this week’s play against the Northwestern Wildcats on Saturday at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. This will be the second time these two teams have faced each other this season. The Huskers beat the Wildcats 3-1 in their first match-up in Evanston, Ill. In the competition, senior Kelsey Robinson notched a double-double on 25 kills and 12 digs. She also posted a hitting clip of .438 percent. Junior
setter Mary Pollmiller paced the offense with 54 assists on the night. Senior Wildcat outside hitter Stephanie Holthus controlled the attack by contributing 20 of the team’s 48 kills in the match. Holthus is currently Northwestern’s second all-time kills leader with 1,640 and is 26 kills shy of becoming the program’s first leader. The blocking game was led by junior middle blocker Savannah Paffen, who tallied eight block assists. During the Huskers’ (16-4, 9-2) last time out, they swept Illinois, with 16 total blocks on the match. Sophomore Cecilia Hall led the blocking effort with 11 blocks. “I don’t know, it just clicked today (Wednesday),” Hall said Nebraska coach John Cook has said he could see this Husker squad becoming a dominant blocking team. “I think we have seen it
