‘Business leaders of our future’

Obama calls on Kellogg students to boost nation’s economic growth By JEANNE KUANG

daily senior staffer @jeannekuang

Touting his administration’s health care, educational and economic policies, President Barack Obama called Kellogg School of Management students the leaders of the nation’s economic future in a speech peppered with jokes and Northwestern references. “There’s a reason I came to a business school instead of a school of government,” he said Thursday afternoon at Cahn Auditorium to an audience of more than 500 Kellogg students, along with a handful of NU undergraduates, University administrators and local and state officials. Obama geared his remarks toward business students, joking about not having a Master of

Business Administration and making repeated and pointed mentions of facts, data and statistics about economic policy throughout his speech, which argued that his administration’s focus on job creation, healthcare reform, education and clean energy has helped the United States recover from the 2008 recession. “Kellogg Business School, you guys are all smart. You do all this analysis. You run the numbers,” he said, drawing laughter from the crowd. “Has anybody here seen a credible argument that (cutting taxes for the wealthy) is what our economy needs right now?” He called on the Kellogg community to support policies such as minimum wage raises, equal pay for women, paid maternity leave, immigration reform and other Democratic Party agenda items in the upcoming midterm election. “It’s going to be young people like you, and universities like this, that will shape the American

economy and set the conditions for middle-class growth well into the 21st century,” he said. During the speech, Obama also announced a goal to enroll six million children in high quality pre-school programs by the end of the decade. Despite the speech’s business and economics focus, other aspects of NU did not go unmentioned by the president. “This is a university that is brimming with the possibilities of a new economy,” he said. “You can’t help but visit a campus like this and feel the promise of the future.” He referenced the NU commencement address he gave as an Illinois senator in 2006, his Dance Marathon celebrity video in March and the many White House staffers who are NU alumni. Obama also highlighted the University’s work in science and technology, including NU’s nanotechnology institute, an NU partnership with a Chicago design and digital manufacturing lab

(which was funded by a federal grant) and University research in carbon emissions reduction. “I know that here at Northwestern, your researchers are working to convert sunlight into liquid fuel — which sounds impossible, or at least really hard,” he said as the audience laughed. University President Morton Schapiro, who introduced Obama before the speech, told The Daily he was “pleasantly surprised” by the NU references. Schapiro said Obama was eager to address Kellogg students and the speech was originally scheduled to be given in a Kellogg classroom, but the White House decided on a larger venue. “I figured he would talk to the Kellogg students about your role in the future of the economy but I was really gratified that he opened it up by talking about Northwestern,” Schapiro said.

Obama shows NU spirit during visit By ALLY MUTNICK

Though President Barack Obama came to Evanston to talk about the economy, he made Thursday a historic day for Northwestern when he opened with a “Go Cats!” and reminded the crowd of the time he “popped in via video to kick off Dance Marathon.” “I’d figured this time I’d come in person,” he quipped. A crowd of about 1,000 packed into Cahn Auditorium, including Evanston officials, Illinois lawmakers, members of Congress and a purple-clad contingent of NU students, faculty and administrators. Obama landed via helicopter just after 12:30 p.m. on The Lakefill in front of a crowd spanning from Norris University Center to North Campus. His motorcade traveled down Sheridan Road, passing hundreds of students, before turning off on Foster Street to reach Cahn. Opening his speech by greeting Evanston, Obama paid homage to the city and Chicago, where he got his start in politics. “Hello Evanston! Hello Northwestern!” Obama said. “It is so good to be here.” He mentioned familiar faces in the crowd, including the city’s “mild-mannered” Mayor Rahm Emanuel (Communication ‘85) and Gov. Pat Quinn (Law ‘80), along with Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Evanston) and Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.). University President Morton Schapiro, introducing Obama before his speech, also alluded to the notable audience, noting the “two best mayors in the country” — Evanston Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl and Emanuel. Before taking the stage, Obama met backstage with Tisdahl, Schapiro, Kellogg Dean Sally Blount, lawmakers and some former White House staffers. “I got to give him a hug and tell him Evanston loves him,” Tisdahl said. “He said, ‘I love Evanston back.’” Guests allowed backstage wore green wristbands recycled from last spring’s Dillo Day, meaning members of Congress and local politicians sported bracelets with the name of the festival. “The mayor of Evanston is wearing a Dillo Day bracelet,” Tisdahl noted. Many students complained after the University

initially announced the undergraduate seating was limited. On Thursday, multiple undergrads said they received last-minute tickets to Obama’s speech. Burgwell Howard, vice president of student engagement, said along with about 35 student volunteers, there were roughly 50 other undergraduates, 20 doctoral students and more than 500 Kellogg students at the speech. Some students and administrators got tickets from friends or family who work in the White House. Several NU students from the Posse Foundation’s scholarship program said they received an early-morning phone invitation from the University. NU’s Office of the President also confirmed it gave out extra tickets Thursday morning to students. As a student volunteer, NU College Democrats President Quentin Heilbroner was able to shake hands with Obama as he left the auditorium and said it was “one of the most fantastic experiences of my life.” “He does have one hell of a handshake,” the Weinberg junior said. University and city officials said the day went smoothly. NU, Evanston and the White House spent much of the last week preparing for Obama’s arrival, doling out tickets and working with the Secret Service to close streets and increase security. Thursday was also the first time in 60 years that a sitting president visited Evanston. Tisdahl said it was exciting for the city, noting its Democratic Party had been the first in the state to endorse Obama when he ran for senator. All Evanston alderman attended the speech, along with city manager Wally Bobkiewicz. “The best part of the speech for me was the first two words, ‘Hello Evanston,’” Bobkiewicz said. “That did the whole thing for me.” After the speech, Schapiro recounted his interaction with Obama, noting they discussed the joys of raising children and Malia Obama’s upcoming college tours. “He brought it up first … he said his daughter is looking at colleges,” Schapiro recalled. “I said, ‘boy, I’d love to host you on that tour.’”

City remembers Bookman’s Alley, owner By Stephanie Kelly

the daily northwestern @StephanieKellyM

Bookman’s Alley was like a fantasy, Northwestern Prof. Reginald Gibbons said. City officials held a ceremony Thursday commemorating Bookman’s Alley, an independent bookstore that closed last year, and its owner Roger Carlson. During the ceremony, a plaque was unveiled on the building, located off of Sherman Avenue, celebrating the used bookstore’s presence in Evanston for more than 30 years. In 2014, Bookends & Beginnings filled the space at 1712 Sherman Ave. Jeff Garrett, a partner of Bookends & Beginnings, helped present the plaque to Carlson at the ceremony. “(Bookman’s Alley) was eclectic, personalitydriven and fiercely independent,” said Garrett in a speech during the event. After the commemoration, Garrett said he planned to show Carlson the interior of the bookstore. It was the first time Carlson would enter the new store, he said. “We’ve been really nervous,” Garrett told The Daily. “We hope he likes it.” Independent bookstores are unique because owners can make the store whatever they want it to be, Garrett said. He said that Carlson decorated Bookman’s Alley in an old-fashioned way, while Bookends & Beginnings is more post-modern.

Annie Coakley, the executive director of Downtown Evanston, organized the ceremony. She said independent bookstores, along with independent stores in general, set communities apart from others, and they’re a huge factor in economic development. Gibbons, who is NU’s Frances Hooper Chair in the Arts and Humanities, viewed Bookman’s Alley and Carlson in a unique way. “He was a kind of non-academic literary institution, he and his store,” Gibbons said. “It was the kind of place you would go that was not like a university bookstore and not like Barnes & Noble.” Gibbons first went to Bookman’s Alley when he moved to Evanston in 1981, around the time of the bookstore’s opening. Gibbons frequently visited Carlson at the bookstore, and Carlson even declared Gibbons the poet laureate of the store. It was a store purely for readers and collectors, Gibbons said. Lining the walls of the store were framed photographs and autographs of authors from the 19th century to the present. Carlson placed an assortment of unique objects around the store, Gibbons said, including an old football helmet, rugs, furniture and many other things. He said it was the most beautiful bookstore he’d ever seen. However, only the books were for sale. “(I liked) just sitting there, watching people come in and talk with him and ask for things and then come back and buy a lot of books,” Gibbons said of Carlson. “He always had funny things to say.” Although Bookman’s Alley has closed, Gibbons

A 49-year-old man was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly took items from a Home Depot in Evanston without paying, police said. More than $56 in merchandise was taken from the store, 2201 Oakton St., including an LED flashlight and a knife, Evanston police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. The entire incident was caught on video footage

provided by the hardware store, Parrott said. Police responded and stopped the man in the parking lot. The Evanston man was charged with felony retail theft because of a prior conviction, police said.

For a building that has had books in it for so long, he said it’s wonderful that it’s now a different store. “I think it’s just tremendous that it’s surviving as a bookstore,” he said.

Police responded around 11 a.m. on Wednesday to reports of a man, 18, throwing objects at a property in the 1500 block of Dobson Street, Parrott said. The man was arrested in the 300 block of Dodge Avenue, police said. The incident resulted in a custodial arrest, not a ticket, Parrott said. The man faces a monetary fine for his actions, he said. ­— Paige Leskin

PROTESTING POLICIES Students and community members line Sheridan Road in protest of Obama’s policies on immigration, fiscal reform and international affairs. Many different groups congregated by The Arch, including M.E.Ch.A de Northwestern and Turning Point USA.

By Tyler Pager and Rebecca Savransky daily senior staffers @tylerpager @ beccasavransky

Despite the hoards of people lined up along Sheridan Road, not everyone was excited to welcome President Barack Obama to Northwestern on Thursday. More than 50 students and community members crowded near The Arch holding large signs and chanting in protest of Obama’s policies on immigration, fiscal reform and international affairs. Protesters held up posters with phrases including, “I paid thousands for a useless Degree #Obamaeconomy,� “How does this baby owe $39K in national Debt? #irresponsible,� “Debt = Generational Theft� and “Who Will Obama Blame Today?� Protesters began gathering at about 11 a.m., and the crowd continued to grow until after the president

went inside Cahn Auditorium to give his speech. Multiple NU students stood in packs crowding against the barricades as the motorcade approached Cahn. Weinberg junior Cinthya Rodriguez joined with members of M.E.Ch.A de Northwestern, a Chicano student group that is dedicated to political involvement and critical consciousness, to protest Obama’s immigration policies. “We thought it was ironic that President Obama is coming to Northwestern University,� Rodriguez said, calling NU “a campus that the culture and the atmosphere is hostile to its students of color, but at the same time, that hasn’t supported undocumented students.� Rodriguez added Obama has deported more than 2 million people, more than any other president. “Just like Northwestern has failed undocumented students and undocumented people in general, so has President Obama,� she said. “We are trying to

make that connection by being here today.� Other groups protesting included Turning Point USA, Americans for Prosperity and Young Americans for Liberty. Leena Oudin of Turning Point USA said the group is focused on activism and student outreach to publicize the country’s large debt and failing job market. “We’re basically just a group that’s fed up with the government,� the Aurora University senior said. “We’re almost $18 trillion in debt, and our tuition keeps going up. And yet when you come out of school, there’s not a whole lot of jobs.� The group set up a booth at The Arch, giving out buttons and pamphlets with more information about their efforts. Representatives from Americans for Prosperity, which has more than 60,000 advocates in Illinois, also voiced their dissatisfaction with the government by holding up signs and rallying behind ideas

of fiscal reform. Crissy Brown, field director of Americans for Prosperity in Illinois, said the group also reached out to NU College Republicans. Brown said they declined to attend because they “don’t believe� in protesting. “Essentially, Obama’s speaking, and you can’t even get into the event unless you’ve been selected, which just kind of speaks to pretty much like all of the problems that are going on in the government right now,� she said. The protesters continued while Obama spoke. Weinberg sophomore Angel Ayon, who was protesting the president’s immigration policies, said their efforts were successful. “Our voices are being heard,� Ayon said. “We’re strong. We’re still going on.�

Letter to the Editor

You should care about what’s happening in Hong Kong It didn’t look much like a revolution. It was 9 p.m. in the heart of Hong Kong’s financial district. People, not cars, occupied the roads. A truck delivering water bottles and juice, gas masks and cooling pads, rolled through the crowd. The people parted, creating a path for the truck while the drivers handed out supplies to the sound of sustained cheers from the onlookers. It didn’t feel like a revolution either. Yet this was the same group of protestors, the same “Umbrella Revolution” that faced unprecedented police force just the day before, on Sept. 28, when authorities unleashed pepper spray and dozens of canisters of tear gas on the crowd gathered in Central. With more than 50 people injured in scuffles with the police and 89 arrested, these protests blemished Hong Kong’s usually spotless track record of peaceful demonstrations — but not because of the protesters. This time it’s the authorities, who have been criticized by both demonstrators and the media for excessive use of force in a situation that did not need it. So named for the countless umbrellas held aloft to shield protestors from both sun and tear gas, the “Umbrella Revolution” is the result of Hong Kong’s growing discontent with both the local and central governments. At the core of the issue lies the city’s demands for universal suffrage. The Basic Law that governs Hong Kong states that the Chief Executive should eventually be elected by the people: one person, one vote. Currently, an election committee elects Hong Kong’s Chief Executive. The most

recent proposal set forth by the Beijing government allows each person one vote, but only after a proBeijing election committee vets up to three candidates for the position. That, Hong Kongers contend, was not the deal. The action started on Wednesday, Sept. 24. Demonstrations began, sparked by students’ efforts as they conducted peaceful marches and boycotted classes. Momentum increased Friday when the Occupy Central movement, which had planned a civil disobedience campaign for Oct. 1 against the proposed election policy, moved its campaign up to join the student movement. The police reacted with surprising force against protestors, emerging with militaristic guns. Thousands flooded the streets in indignant response. On Sunday, the police cloaked Central in tear gas and pepper spray. But the thousands remained on the streets, united against the violence. Corey Nelson (Weinberg ’14) arrived in Central on Monday night. He called the atmosphere “peaceful, almost celebratory.” By that time, the police had essentially disappeared from the major protest areas, realizing perhaps that force was not enough to drive the protestors from the streets. With the disappearance of the police, the crowds have relaxed and the calm atmosphere that blankets most demonstrations in Hong Kong has returned. Protesters sit together on pedestrian bridges, on curbs, in the road, sitting in groups of two or three, chatting as if it’s the most normal thing in the world.

Let’s make gender equality about everyone HEIWON SHIN


Recently, students wearing business attire filled Sheridan Road. Dressing smart and looking for potential internships or jobs, Northwestern students were seen going to and from the two-day career fair. Such a career fair is one of the defining moments of college. It is when life outside of college becomes a near reality. It’s time for students’ hard work to shine. But controversies like Tinder CEO’s sexual harassment scandal and the #Gamergate incident make me question what “the real world out there” may really be like. The #Gamergate incident in particular resonated with me. Women in the video game industry have been bombarded with criticism and sometimes even rape and We should threats just for reach beyond death being women. Zoe by making Quinn was accused by her boyfriend gender of cheating with a equality one journalist in order of our primary to receive publicity for a video game she priorities. developed. Following such allegations, I could understand accusations for corruption. I don’t know the full truth, but based solely on what was released to the public, it’s not hard to understand where the logic flows. But where the whole #Gamergate backlash came from is another question, from rape or death threats, hacking personal information, photos and hacking into personal rights. This is simply wrong. There’s nothing that can justify such extremities. Underlying the #Gamergate incident is the larger issue of treatment and portrayal of women in the video game industry and society. The two go hand in hand. Overly sexualized female figures in the video game industry contribute to stereotypes and objectifying women. Sexism is not news at all. We’re born into it – girls into pink and boys into blue. Anytime I go to Target, for instance, I can clearly see where the “girl toys” and the “boy toys” are just based on the color. We later learn to break out of it, but what happens in the past still affects the present. Behaving outside of your social “expectations” can lead to persecutions. Last

quarter, I watched “Ma Vie en Rose,” a movie that poignantly embodies such a situation. Ludovic, the protagonist, is a girl in spirit trapped in a boy’s body. Ludovic is ostracized by his neighbors, whereas his friend, a tomboy, isn’t because their society values masculinity over femininity. In other words, it’s OK for girls to “man up,” but it’s not OK for boys to be feminine. Yes, the movie is somewhat dated (1997), and not everything in it is directly applicable to society today. But such stigma and discrimination still carries on. However, there are positive signs of change. Take the Pink Helmet Posse, for instance. Bella, Relz and Sierra, three girls who make tutorials, share their love for skateboarding and encourage other young girls to try skateboarding, despite it being a “boy sport.” The founder of GoldieBlox, Debbie Sterling, also encourages young girls to pursue science and engineering through toys that give girls confidence in problem solving and critical thinking. The point is, don’t try to accommodate for girls and women. The true meaning of gender equality is not “feminism” that stands for protecting and promoting only female rights. Gender equality should be about everyone — protecting everyone against stereotypes, prejudices and discrimination. The NU community, as part of a leading educational institution, has the power to make a difference. We should reach beyond by making gender equality one of our primary priorities. For example, the Knight Lab, a joint media innovation lab between the Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications and the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, can reach out to current students or even to the Evanston community and inspire kids to explore their potential without gender discrimination or judgment. The society we live in is not the prettiest. We sometimes believe sexism is only something we see on the news. We hail individuals like Malala Yousafzai for coming out of a sexist society as a heroic victor. However, even though our society may not manifest in a similar form, sexism still lurks amidst us and will continue to do so if we, as individuals and groups, do not actively search for ways to end it. Heiwon Shin is a Medill sophomore. She can be contacted at If you would like to respond publicly to this column, send a Letter to the Editor to

But they’re far from finished. Near the government headquarters, people have set up microphones. They chant and they sing, chanting for Leung Chun-Ying, the current Chief Executive, to resign, and signing the Cantonese version of “Do You Hear the People Sing” from “Les Misérables.” The situation doesn’t cease to amaze: the escalation of the demonstrations, from student-led boycotts to protests over 100,000 strong, the police reaction, the subsequent outpouring of support from the citizens of Hong Kong. Even now, the protestors display discipline and order – even while building a barricade with fences and plastic zip ties, protestors made a point of throwing used ties into trash bags. For Hong Kongers far away from home, the news reports contain no less heavy a blow. On campus in Evanston, Northwestern students reacted to the news with shock, dismay, hurt and a sudden desire to defend their home. Just hours after reports of Friday’s violence reached Evanston, Vincent Li, a Kellogg student, and Weinberg senior Jasmine Jor encouraged fellow students from Hong Kong to react, to feel for their city, to take action. “The unity that a majority of Hong Kongers are feeling in this movement, in protecting the idea of what Hong Kong is and what Hong Kong should be, somehow that idea is the same for all Hong Kong people,” Li said. “Regardless of your political views, you are feeling some sort of hurt for the people of Hong Kong, some camaraderie.” On Tuesday evening, thousands still sat in the

roads. Nelson returned to the protests and parked himself on one of the main roads in Central, eating biscuits, talking to people. He marveled at the way these protests brought people together, congregated them in spaces they could never ordinarily occupy. It was the magic of public space, he decided. These demonstrations drew people out and together in a way that no other protest in recent years has. Nelson said he saw more concern and passion from the gathered students than he had ever seen before. But despite Hong Kong’s awakened solidarity, there’s no telling what will happen next, no telling whether the people’s efforts will result in any changes. Some believe the protests will simply end whenever people grow tired. The legacy of the protests may lie in more than just the results, though. “Whatever the outcome, the fact that the people of Hong Kong are willing to express desires for freedom and representation, and willing to sacrifice some of that to express their needs as a people, is important and necessary,” Nelson said. For him, it’s the less palpable changes that matter. “Even if they don’t get what they want, it’s killed the image of Hong Kong as an apathetic people.” Abigail Watt Medill Senior Former member of Hong Kong Students’ Association junior exec board

Know the true meaning of consent before hooking up MEERA PATEL


When you think about the things that make a party fun, what do you think of? You think of the chance to hang out with friends, get to know a few new people – but there are varying levels of “getting to know” someone. That’s why I dislike the term “hook up” so much. It’s vague and it doesn’t fully make your intentions clear, which makes the comprehensive meaning of consent trickier to define. Even if you ask if someone wants to “hook up,” they may not know what you mean or how far you want to go. As of Sept. 28, the governor of California signed into law legislation defining consent as an “affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity.” Why is it important to have an official, state-approved definition of consent? Consent issues often stem from misunderstandings. That’s why it is so prevalent in conversations recently; you can’t fully consent to something unless you are completely aware of what you are agreeing to by consenting. This plays into the sexual assault policy revisions that NU has made in the past year, which require that a person be sober and consciously aware of what he or she is agreeing to. This summer, I attended my sorority’s national convention, where we heard Allen Groves, the Dean of Students at the University of Virginia, go over federal initiatives relating to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and sexual assault policies and remediation on college campuses. We discussed the progress on federal guidelines and requirements of compliance the government is looking to institute for public universities. It is good that the government and universities are getting involved and trying to solve the issues that arise from sexual assault charges on campus. It’s even better that they’re trying to standardize the definitions of consent and mediation practices across different institutions in our country. But we need to do more as students. We need to change some unofficial systems we have at our schools. We need to change the way we think about our interactions with each other. People go to parties with different goals in mind. I go to parties to hang out with my friends and meet people; others may go to parties to look for someone to hook up with. It makes me sad that oftentimes these situations become a venue for rape and sexual assault. One reason rape and sexual assault happen so often is simple. Intentions can be misunderstood. Ignorance about what consent really is can lead to people doing things they don’t realize are wrong

until much later. If we’re not educating ourselves on what’s okay and what isn’t, we increase our risk of committing rape or sexual assault. If people don’t recognize the signs of non-consent, if they don’t realize that someone is too intoxicated to agree to anything, they may find themselves in trouble later. What about those people who aren’t looking for anything? It’s not like you can walk into a party wearing a sign that says “I am not interested in hooking up.” You would look ridiculous. But without the sign you face the issue of having to shake off people who make unwanted advances. And there’s always a chance that they won’t listen – which we need to address with better education of what is appropriate, especially to new students who may not be as aware of the dangers of going to a party and “hooking up.” We need to make sure more of our students are aware of what the policies we have in place actually mean and what it means for their hook ups. We as students are affected by sexual assault — if we don’t change how we think, how can we expect change? Meera Patel is a McCormick senior.

REMEMBERING LIVES LOST Students gather at The Rock on Thursday evening for a vigil for people who were killed during the ongoing conflict in the Gaza Strip. The event was organized by J Street U, a student organization promoting peace in the region.

Students and religious leaders gathered at The Rock on Thursday evening for a candlelight vigil to memorialize the lives lost this year on both sides of the Israel-Palestine conflict in the Gaza Strip. The vigil, which attracted nearly 30 people, was organized by J Street U Northwestern, a “Pro Israel, Pro Palestine, Pro Peace� student movement, said Weinberg senior Josh Boxerman, J Street co-chair. This was the second time in a week members of the NU community gathered to mourn the deaths lost in the violent conflict in the Gaza Strip. Since the conflict erupted in July, more than


Three people who may disagree politically and socially are able to come together on the issue of human life as a whole,� Jonathan Scherzer, McCormick senior

2,100 Palestinians have been killed, along with more than 70 Israelis, according to a United Nations report from early September. Rabbi Aaron Potek, Associate University Chaplain Tahera Ahmad and University Chaplain Tim Stevens represented Judaism, Islam and Christianity, respectively, at the gathering. Each religious leader spoke during the vigil about the inherent tragedy of the instability in the Middle East, and shared different religious verses.

“No matter how much we divide the blame,� Potek said, “there’s no such thing as perfect people.� During the event, students also read poetry and testimonials about the international events before holding a moment of silence to remember the victims from both Israel and Palestine. McCormick senior Jonathan Scherzer said he was moved upon hearing the three religious leaders speak in a row. “One of the most powerful moments was seeing how three people who may disagree politically and socially are able to come together on the issue of human life as a whole,� Scherzer said. Boxerman noted that University of Wisconsin-Madison and Oberlin College held similar events this week. “Our message is one that’s inclusive and accepting,� Boxerman said. “It’s also challenging and will push people to consider narratives

they may not be familiar with.� He said he hopes the vigil’s demonstration of solidarity continues. “The vigil was successful in that it got people thinking critically about a two-state solution,� Boxerman said. J Street U is a national student organization with chapters at college campuses across the nation. The group advocates for a two-state solution in Israel and Palestine and supports the rights of both the Jewish and Palestinian people. On Sept. 26, Students for Justice in Palestine also hosted a vigil at The Rock to mourn the conflict’s many Palestinian victims. Medill junior Tal Axelrod, J Street U co-chair, told The Daily on Sunday that the J Street U vigil is part of a national series.

City church honors community leaders By Paige Leskin

daily senior staffer @paigeleskin

An Evanston church is honoring local leaders Saturday for their dedication and service in different sectors of community life. Through a new capital campaign called The Purpose Project, the New Beginnings North Shore Church is celebrating the accomplishments of nine people who have made a difference in their areas of expertise, the church’s pastor Karl Adair said. “We decided what we wanted to do was take the time to honor individuals that we felt have already made some type of impact on the community at large,” he said. “Those individuals are all coming from different backgrounds. They’re all coming from different forms of outreach, but we thought that they all met the different things that we were looking for.” Those who will receive the “Ultimate Purpose Award” include a counselor at Evanston Township High School, an anchor from a local news station and the founder of a business network aimed at the career development of women. A committee, made up of community and church members, was formed during the summer to brainstorm a list of people who were fit to receive the awards, Adair said. Recipients were drawn from sectors of religion, family, arts and entertainment and youth. Under the government sector, the church, located at 930 Pitner Ave., is giving an award to Ald. Peter Braithwaite (2nd) for his work in the community. “I’m honored to be recognized by Pastor Adair’s ministry,” he said. “It’s very humbling … being able to share a stage with amazing people who have contributed a lot to this town.” The church aims to take people who made impacts in their individual areas and bring them together to create “one big happy planet,” Adair said. By officially commending these individuals who have had success in their own sectors of work, Adair said he hopes to honor people who deserve

praise and are not recognized by the everyday work they do. The project is helping people define the meaning of their lives, he said. Adair said he lives by the tenet that there are two exciting days in people’s lives — the day they were born and the day they realize why they were born. “These are people who maybe are unsung We heroes, people that may be not big in name,” he decided what said. “What we’re trying we wanted to to let people know is that your life has purpose. do was take the Your life has meaning.” time to honor The Purpose Project is also a way for the individuals that church to increase its we felt have community outreach in already made Evanston, Adair said. some type of The campaign bloomed out of the influx of vioimpact on the lence in Evanston over community at the summer, he said. Award recipients will large. be honored at an event Karl Adair, in Skokie on Saturday Pastor night. The ceremony will assist in the church’s campaign to raise community outreach, as well as raise money to expand the church’s programming, Adair said. The funding will go toward the church’s move to a larger location. The move will give the church the opportunity to provide the community with academic support, skill training and seminars and programs to fight gang violence, according to a news release from the church. The event will feature a speech from Corey Brooks, Sr., who serves as the pastor at the New Beginnings Church of Chicago. Brooks is known both locally and nationally for raising $450,000 for gang violence in his community through camping out in a tent on the roof of an abandoned motel in November 2011, according to the news release.

Wisconsin’s Gordon presents trouble for NU defense By JOSEPH DIEBOLD

daily senior staffer @JosephDiebold

Daily file photo by Brian Lee

There may not be two offenses in the Big Ten more different than Penn State and Wisconsin. The Nittany Lions are led by a surefire NFL prospect in quarterback Christian Hackenberg and have passed on nearly 56 percent of their plays so far this season. The No. 17 Badgers have a pro prospect of their own in the backfield, running back Melvin Gordon, and have run the ball on more than 68 percent of their snaps. A week after stifling Penn State’s passing attack in an upset win over the Nittany Lions, the Wildcats will play host to the Badgers’ ground game in their conference home opener, looking to continue turning around a season that looked dead in the water after an 0-2 start. It will be easily the toughest challenge for There’s not a run defense that has held up well over the a throw he first four games, limitcan’t make. ing opponents to less He always has than 3 yards per carry. But while none of eyes down the NU’s first three FBS field, and he has opponents is averaging really talented even 5 yards per carry, Wisconsin’s average in weapons. that statistic is over 7. The Badgers are fourth Pat Fitzgerald, in the nation in rushing coach yards per game, with 343.3. Wisconsin is, as coach Pat Fitzgerald puts it, “ginormous” along the offensive line, with the Badgers’ five starters averaging 6-foot-5 and 321 pounds. It will be a stiff test for an NU front seven that shone against the Nittany Lions. In last season’s matchup, it was the Badgers that won the battle in the run game, carrying 51 times for 286 yards in a 35-6 trouncing of the Cats. Fitzgerald said his defense will have to remain disciplined to improve on that performance this year. “No. 1, we’ve got to do a great job up front controlling our gaps. We’ve got to stay in our gaps,” he said. “Our linebackers have got to make

MARVELOUS MELVIN A week after facing a pass-happy Penn State, Northwestern will meet run-powered Wisconsin on Saturday. Badgers running back Melvin Gordon, one of the country’s best backs, carried 22 times for 172 yards against the Wildcats in last year’s matchup.

the D-line right, and we’ve got to fit properly. … And then we’ve got to tackle. We’ve got to do a really good job tackling.” Wisconsin quarterback Tanner McEvoy will provide his own challenge. McEvoy, a former safety, is third on the team in rushing but has still run for more yards than any of NU’s running backs. Fitzgerald said he was pleased in general with the pass rush against Penn State, but McEvoy’s running ability will force the Cats to be sharper. “I thought we did a good job except for a few times when we lost contain and were rush-lane undisciplined,” he said. “If you do that against Tanner, it’s a 60-yard run, so we gotta be much better than we were on Saturday.” But a well-run defense is not the responsibility of the front seven alone. The secondary must come up and make plays in the box when necessary.

“Our safeties are going to have a lot of tackles on Saturday because they’re going to block everybody at the point of attack,” Fitzgerald said. Redshirt freshman safety Godwin Igwebuike, making his first start on Saturday in place of injured senior Ibraheim Campbell, will be key in stopping the run, and NU’s coaches will have to feel comfortable stacking the box and leaving the team’s cornerbacks on an island. The latter area is where NU really shined against the Nittany Lions. While the pass rush was in Hackenberg’s face all day, that was as much due to Penn State’s struggles along the offensive line than anything NU did defensively. But sophomore cornerback Matthew Harris and junior cornerback Nick VanHoose, who were named the team’s defensive players of the week, were excellent against the Nittany Lions, holding Hackenberg to 216 passing yards, his secondlowest output of the season. That number could

have been even lower if Campbell had not gotten injured on Penn State’s longest pass of the day, when he was in position to break up the throw. Senior linebacker Chi Chi Ariguzo said with the front seven occupied with Gordon and company, it will be up to the secondary to hold up. “As a linebacker, it’s always, you want to stop the run first, so up front we’re trying to stop the run,” he said. “We’ve got the DBs in the back end to stop the pass, and from there just gonna go off the game plan, what the coaches call.” Ariguzo said despite the schematic differences, the defense is confident it can turn in a repeat performance. “We expect the same thing as last week, just everybody doing their job, flying around, making plays and having fun,” he said.

Superback role ever evolving for Vitale, others future drop-backs. “It would be cool, but that’s up to the coaches and their game plan.” His potential career as a quarterback aside, Taylor paints himself as more of a pass catcher, a role commonly referred to as an H-back in other offenses. “(Dickerson) blocks a little more on line than me,” he said. “I flex out We a little bit more and do more passing stuff, but opened up our at our position, you have passing game to know how to do the this week … blocking and the route We’re going to running.” Taylor and Dickerson do what works.” have to learn all the ins Dan Vitale, and outs of the position, junior superback but increasingly it seems like they won’t have to do all of them. That heightened specialization may be a product of NU’s success on the recruiting trail. Drake Dunsmore, who played for the Cats from 2007 to 2011, was the genesis of the superback position. Though he was a great Swiss army knife for NU over his playing career, he was only lightly recruited out of high school. Vitale was in the same mold, originally listed as a wide receiver and graded out as just a twostar recruit. That wasn’t the case with Dickerson and Taylor. Both received multiple scholarship offers, and Dickerson was a highly touted, four-star rated member of last year’s class. As NU improves as a program and pulls in better talent, that talent is free to develop into more specific roles. Dickerson and Taylor may come to replace Vitale as two sides of the same coin, each focusing on a specific aspect of the game and doing it better than Vitale could ever hope to. But for now, the jack of all trades still rules. “Dan is a hell of an athlete,” Taylor said. “Getting the ball in his hands is something we plan for, and it’s added to our game.”

LAST OF THE SUPERBACKS Lightly recruited out of high school, junior superback Dan Vitale has thrived as a jack of all trades. Back-ups Jayme Taylor and Garrett Dickerson have become more specialized.


the daily northwestern @BobbyPillote

Sometimes it seems like Northwestern forgets about its superbacks. That wasn’t the case Saturday, when junior Dan Vitale caught seven passes for 113 yards to help lead the Wildcats past Penn State. Emblematic of his position, he also had blocking assignments all over the field and even had a carry on a jet sweep play. “It changes from week to week what our gameplan is,” Vitale said after the game. “We opened up our passing game this week. … We’re going

to do what works.” Such outbursts are rare for the talented and multifaceted Vitale, but they offer a reminder of the effect a versatile hybrid player can have, especially as the superback seems to be turning into an increasingly rare breed. The simple reality is that athletes who have the ability and willingness to do all the things that Vitale does are hard to find. The players behind him on the depth chart are talented, but they seem to be settling into increasingly specialized roles. Senior Tim Hanrahan is listed at superback, but his job this season has been entirely confined to lead blocking duties on kickoff returns and out of the backfield.

True freshman Garrett Dickerson has just one reception for 21 yards this season, but he has received significant playing time as an in-line blocker for running plays. Listed at 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds, Dickerson’s size and blocking ability slot him much more into the traditional tight end role that he has played so far. The heir-apparent to Vitale may be redshirt freshman Jayme Taylor. At 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, he’s the closest match to Vitale in terms of size, and despite his limited production this year – just four catches for 14 yards – he put the super in superback earlier this season when he threw a touchdown to senior quarterback Trevor Siemian on a trick play. “I’m not sure,” Taylor said on the possibility of

From Oct. 4 to Oct. 4, it’s been a long year

In the year since the best day in program history, much has gone wrong By Alex Putterman

the daily northwestern @AlexPutt02

Northwestern football has perhaps never experienced a day cheerier than Friday, Oct. 4, 2013. As the sun rose, ESPN’s Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic broadcast their talk show “Mike & Mike” from Deering Meadow in front of NU students who prioritized being on TV over sleeping. NU-affiliated sports TV personalities wandered the campus as if Evanston were a “This is SportsCenter” commercial. Students who couldn’t tell a tight end from an endoscopy chose favorite Wildcats players. Bums who make sleeping until 11 a.m. a Saturday tradition planned for their pre-dawn trek to The Lakefill the following morning. Anti-socialites who would rather wither in the library than disrupt their studies shifted their schedules to make room for Saturday’s showdown: No. 4 Ohio State and No. 16 NU. That morning’s Daily featured a movie-poster style Gameday cover, with coach Pat Fitzgerald beneath the headline “Almost Famous.” The accompanying story was premised on the idea that the football program was on the cusp. The game didn’t go the Cats’ way, but nor did it disappoint. NU lost 40-30 in a game much closer than the final score indicates, in front of an electric sell-out crowd. Scoreboard aside, no one denied the program’s ascension toward national relevance. Nothing, it seemed, could halt the climb. Well, except maybe Wisconsin, who thrashed NU 35-6 the next week. And Minnesota, who upset the Cats at Ryan Field seven days later. And Iowa. And Nebraska. And Michigan. And Michigan State. Since that triumphant game one year ago this weekend, NU has played 12 games and lost eight of them. Right when the program neared the peak of the mountain, it had let go of its rope. ◆ ◆ ◆ This year, Oct. 4 falls on Saturday, and the Cats just so happen to host Wisconsin, the

very team that commenced their free fall last October. After practice Wednesday, Fitzgerald deflected talk of the Gameday anniversary. “It’s October now,” he replied. “I’m done talking about last year. Every team is different, every set of circumstances is different. Obviously, we’re in a different position now than we were.” But several breaths later — and without further prodding — he essentially confessed to what the Cats’ entire fan base was guilty of: being fooled by the team’s quick start to 2013 and blindsided by the collapse against the Badgers. “I obviously let the team down, because I

LONG YEAR Northwestern has gone through much drama in the previous 12 months. Since Oct. 4, 2013, the team has undergone a sevengame losing streak, a contentious union debate, the departure of its star running back, two more losses and other grimace-worthy troubles.

didn’t see the signs that we weren’t ready to play,” Fitzgerald said Wednesday. “Then we went up there and played terribly.” At the time, that loss didn’t quite spark panic. “It just looked like we didn’t execute very w e l l ,” Fitzgerald said after the game. “All we have to do is make smart decisions and choices with the football and we win a football game,” he said after the following week’s loss. The situation gradually became more dire. Senior running back Venric Mark injured his ankle against the Badgers and didn’t play for the rest of the season. The offense stalled, going entire quarters with no more than a few first downs. The Cats lost blowouts and they lost close games. They lost as favorites and as underdogs. At home and on the road. “We suck right now,” senior quarterback Kain Colter said after a fourth straight loss, to Iowa. “We don’t have very good karma,” junior quarterback Trevor Siemian joked after a tripleovertime loss to Michigan. “It’s pretty unbelievable,” senior kicker Jeff

Budzien said the same day. “It’s shocking. It’s depressing. If you told me we were 4-6 at this point in the year I would’ve laughed at you.” “It’s definitely been a rough experience,” senior defensive end Tyler Scott said after the seventh and final loss, against Michigan State. “You never want to lose a game, but to lose seven in a row. It’s challenging.” The season ended, mercifully, with a close win over Illinois, but the drama continued. In January Colter announced his plan to form a players union at NU. The players’ offseason was in part spent learning about pros and cons of the proposed union and debating back and forth on its merits. Fitzgerald’s winter and spring included testifying at a National Labor Relations Board hearing and explaining

TRUST Coach Pat Fitzgerald and the Wildcats grew increasingly frustrated throughout their seven-game losing streak in 2013. Northwestern hopes last week’s win over Penn State is a sign of things to come, not an aberration.

to players why he thought they shouldn’t unionize. Regardless of whether the union is a valid ambition and regardless of whether it affected any aspect of the team’s preparation for 2014, the process was certainly a headache. Players repeatedly requested the focus return to football (“You can see that we want to move forward,” receiver Kyle Prater said in April. “We just want to keep playing ball.”), and Fitzgerald referred to the union as “that distraction.” After a fairly peaceful summer, the Cats were ready to begin a fresh campaign when more trouble struck. Mark, healthy and ready to play, was suspended for the first two games of the season for an undisclosed violation of team policy. Five days later, he announced his intention to transfer, to be closer to his mother and grandmother in Texas, he said. Still, hopes were fairly high for the 2014 season. Daily writers predicted seven or eight wins and a bowl appearance. But two losses to start the season made nine in 10 games and inspired some heavy questions. Was the program systemically flawed? Had Fitzgerald’s magic run up? Was 2012’s 10-win season an illusion? Would Evanston experience a day like Oct. 4, 2013 any time soon? All of which made last week’s surprise victory over Penn State all the more meaningful. Fair to say it was NU football’s first aggressively positive occurrence in a calendar year. The Cats find themselves a long way from Oct. 4, 2013, when losses were occasional, unions were for steelworkers and mysterious suspensions were a problem for other schools. In the coming weeks, the Cats can prove the previous year — not last week’s performance at Beaver Stadium — was an aberration. “We’re getting tired of losing,” senior linebacker Chi Chi Ariguzo said Wednesday. “We want to get back to our winning ways, how we were.”

Michael Szot appears in court for status hearing

McCormick senior Michael Szot appeared in DuPage County court on Thursday morning for a scheduled status hearing. In July, Szot was arrested in connection with a car accident in Naperville, Illinois that killed McCormick senior Mihir Boddupalli and Indiana University student Sajaad Syed. At a hearing in August, Szot pleaded not guilty to nine counts of aggravated driving under the influence. He did not change his plea on Thursday. Szot, who is not currently enrolled at Northwestern, was represented by his attorney at the hearing. Members of his family were also present.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2014 Judge Kathryn Creswell presided over the hearing and confirmed Nov. 5 for his next scheduled court appearance. The case is in the discovery period, in which both prosecution and defense gather evidence to prepare for the trial, according to the DuPage County website. The evidence includes toxicology reports and witness testimony. The DuPage County coroner released autopsy and toxicology reports for Syed and Boddupalli, which were accessed by The Daily in mid-September. The reports ruled the cause of death for both as drowning. At the Nov. 5 court date, Szot will again have the opportunity to change his plea. Ciara McCarthy contributed reporting. — Lydia Ramsey

Across Campuses Yes means yes law spawns changes at local universities VENTURA COUNTRY, Calif. — Local universities are revising sexual assault policies and changing the conversation about what consent means after Gov. Jerry Brown signed the “yes means yes” bill this week. At CSU Channel Islands in Camarillo, leaders over the summer anticipated possible passage of the bill and have begun discussions about the legislation. President Richard Rush has been speaking to faculty, staff and students about the definition of sexual consent. “The mantra is yes means yes, no means no and silence does not mean yes,” Rush said. “People are taking this very seriously.” With the governor’s backing, California becomes the first state in the nation to define consent for sex as a positive affirmation, as opposed to the common refrain “no means no.” Co-authored by state Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, and state Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, the legislation requires training for faculty and staff who handle allegations of sexual assault, and student access to counseling and other health services. Jackson said the legislation establishes a protocol on how complaints of rape and sexual violence should be heard and reviewed. “Here in California, we’ve taken a first step

and hopefully we’ll be a model to others,” Jackson said. “There are no excuses for rape. No excuses for blaming the victims of rape.” Jackson said sexual assault has become an “epidemic” on college campuses, and there’s often an attitude of ignoring the victim while protecting the perpetrator. CSUCI is in the process of hiring a Title IX coordinator who will serve as a victims advocate and review allegations of sexual assault. Currently, the duties are performed by the associate director of human resources. Because the law applies to all public and private universities and community colleges that receive state funding for student financial aid, California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks has also updated its policy to include the affirmative consent standard. “We will incorporate this standard into all of our education efforts to ensure that both students and staff who work with students on violence prevention have a thorough understanding of what constitutes affirmative consent, that it must be ongoing and that it can be revoked at any time,” Melinda Roper, CLU’s interim vice president of student affairs, said in a statement. -Wendy Leung (Ventura County Star)

SPEND WINTER 2015 IN WASHINGTON D.C. Have you ever dreamed of rubbing elbows with the movers and shakers on Capitol Hill? Would you like to learn how D.C. operates from the inside as legislators, the Obama administration and advocacy groups grapple with key issues facing the country? The Northwestern undergraduate program in Washington is an exciting opportunity for students to gain invaluable knowledge and experience about how DC operates, working as interns in the mix of organizations involved in a variety of important national issues while taking seminars in privacy and civil liberties in an era of National Security Agency scandals, and presidential power versus congressional clout. The program, which provides four units of academic credit through the internship/practicum and two seminars, also gives students the opportunity to forge ongoing relationships with organizations and companies in D.C. that have yielded subsequent internships and jobs. The program is offered every winter quarter so that students are there to witness either an inaugural address or a State of the Union address. Students work out of Medill’s D.C. Bureau at 1325 G Street, NW, Suite 730, about two blocks from the Metro Center subway stop.

If you are interested in finding out more about the Winter 2015 program, attend a meeting on Thursday, October 9 at 5pm in Fisk 311. If you are interested but can’t attend the meeting, please contact Prof. Ellen Shearer at

National News Officials expand search for US Ebola patient’s contacts, order 4 to stay home

DALLAS — Health officials drastically broadened the scope of their search Thursday for people who might have had contact with an Ebola patient and issued a public health order requiring four people who had shared an apartment with the man to stay inside the home after they ignored earlier orders to not go out. A bleak image emerged of the apartment in Dallas’ Five Points area where Thomas Eric Duncan spent time before being taken to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday and put into isolation. His soiled sheets and clothes were sealed in a plastic bag. The mattress he had used was pushed up against a wall. Health officials were arranging for food to be delivered and scrambled to find a company willing to clean the apartment and remove the items used by Duncan. “There has been a little bit of hesitancy among entities who want to do that,” David Lakey, the state’s health commissioner, told reporters. Duncan, a Liberian who arrived in the United States on Sept. 19, remained hospitalized in serious condition. A guard was posted outside his room, and he was not permitted visitors, but Lakey said Duncan had a phone and was talking to relatives and friends. Questions remained about why Duncan had been sent away from the hospital after his first visit to the emergency room, only to be rushed back two days later sicker than before, and how many people might have been in contact with him before he was hospitalized. While officials have repeatedly said the chances of anyone else catching Ebola are extremely low, they upped to 100 the estimated number of people being viewed as Duncan’s potential contacts who should be assessed and possibly monitored for signs of the illness. Most of those people have been interviewed already, said Thomas Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Depending on the level of contact they had with Duncan, they could be advised to remain confined for three weeks — Ebola’s incubation

period — and to take their temperatures twice daily for signs of fever. A fever is one of the early symptoms of Ebola, which is spread only through direct contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person. “Our approach really is to cast a wide net,” Frieden said. “To reach out to as many people as there are who may have had contact so that we may identify all of those who might well have actually had contact.” So far, nobody, including the ambulance workers who accompanied Duncan to the hospital and the four relatives under confinement orders, has symptoms of Ebola. Five children who were taken out of school Wednesday amid concerns they had contact with Duncan also remain symptom-free. But the state “disease control order” issued overnight underscored the medical community’s concern that complacency could let the virus that has killed more than 3,000 people in West Africa spread in this country. It came after officials had advised the four to remain inside their apartment because of what had been their proximity to Duncan. “They were noncompliant with the request to stay home,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, the county’s highest elected official. Jenkins did not provide details, but he said the order was for their own good and that of the rest of the community. Zachary Thompson, director of Dallas County’s health department, said he and Christopher Perkins, the department’s medical director, had met with the four at the apartment late Wednesday and ensured that they understood the latest order. “They emphatically said they would comply,” Thompson said. “It is a delicate balance,” Jenkins said when asked whether placing people on virtual lockdown could discourage others from coming forward about possible contacts with Duncan. “We’re concerned about people feeling there’s an overreaction and not coming forward with their contacts,” he said. “But we’re also concerned with the public losing confidence in the response.” - Molly Hennessy-Fiske, Tina Susman and David Zucchino (Los Angeles Times)

FIGHTING THE ILLINI Maria Grygleski and the Wildcats will take on Illinois on Sunday, looking to secure their first conference win of the season.

Although the junior sometimes plays as a backup, she has scored 1 game-winning goal for the Illini this year. If the score is tight late in the game, the Cats will have to make sure they have Feher tracked down.

Kelley Stump said. “She’s definitely a big offensive threat to us. We’ve handled her all right in the past, but Iowa is a big rival for us. Last year was quite the game.” Iowa has outscored their opponents 32-13. The Cats have outscored opponents 33-15. Both teams have had more than 150 shots this season, and because Iowa has had two fewer games, they’ve had more offensive opportunities per game and more goals per game. Juniors Lisa McCarthy and Kelsey Gradwohl, leaders of the defense, as well as senior goalkeeper Maddy Carpenter, will have their hands full over the weekend. “They have a lot of speed up front and in the backfield,” junior midfielder Caroline Troncelliti said. “They’re really good passers through the midfield and use their speed on the outside.” To combat the speed of the Hawkeyes, the Cats have some speed of their own.

netminder for the Illini, allowing only 8 goals in 945 minutes played. However, she hasn’t faced too much pressure shot-wise, so it will be interesting to see her against an NU team that has generated a lot of chances but hasn’t converted consistently as of late. “It’s going to be a fast-paced game,” Troncelliti said. “The ball moves faster than the players, so we’re going to have to be good at passing, tackling and working together as a whole.” Teamwork is a strength of NU, as it led the Cats to a victory over then-No. 2 Maryland two weeks ago. No one player has scored double digit goals, and the scoring has been distributed among eight different players. “Battling Maryland and improving from that game will be a big help going into Sunday,” Fuchs said. “In the end, we need to do the basics well. We need to stop the ball, receive the ball. We really just need to play our game and start on the right foot.” On Sunday, the game will come down to the wire. Their past two meetings have gone into overtime and been decided by 1 goal. Expect Sunday’s battle to be one for the ages as two Big Ten titans fight for the title of No. 1 in the conference.

NU seeks first Big Ten win against Maryland Maryland vs. Northwestern

By Julian Gerez

daily senior staffer @JulianEGerez

After a tough away trip to play the reigning Big Ten champions, Northwestern (4-1-4, 0-1-2 Big Ten) returns to Lakeside Field Sunday to take on conference newcomer Maryland (3-4-2, 1-1-1 Big Ten) in their first-ever meeting. The Terrapins have had a tough record on the road, recording no victories and losing two of their three matches, which the Wildcats will hope to capitalize on in order to pick up their first conference win of the season. Maryland has struggled offensively this year, scoring just eight goals in their nine matches this season. Their two top scorers have two goals a piece. One of these two, sophomore forward Michael Sauers, could be dangerous off of the bench for the Terrapins, with his two goals coming off of just four starts in nine matches. But if NU’s defense remains as solid as it has been this season, then they should be able to hold off Maryland. The Cats have not allowed any goals at home this year, and have only conceded more than one goal in a single game once this season, away at Ohio State. Much has been said about the accomplishments of senior goalkeeper Tyler Miller, who has made an impressive 32 saves from 36 shots on goal by NU’s opponents, but the Cats back line has

of then-freshman Dominique Masters and classmate Isabel Flens. This year, the Cats do not want to use more than 70 minutes for a win. “We’re trying to shut down Natalie Cafone,” coach Tracey Fuchs said. “She’s going to get the ball. She’s going to make her runs, but if we can always know where she is on the field and have two people around her, that’s going to help. We need to take care of what we need to do. We need to take care of the ball, and we need to execute on both sides It’s an even of corners. matchup, In the end, so whoever it’s an even matchup, executes on so whoever Sunday is executes on Sunday is going to be the going to be winner. the winner.” Last year, Tracey Fuchs, the thencoach sophomore Cafone scored two of the Hawkeyes’ three goals on the day. This year she leads the team in every statistic category: 14 goals, 3 gamewinners, four assists, 45 shots and 31 shots on goal. Stopping the junior will be no easy feat. “They have some players to watch out for, Natalie Cafone (specifically),” junior

No. 11 Northwestern (8-3, 3-0 Big Ten) and No. 7 Iowa (7-2, 2-0) have a long-standing tradition of epic battles

to the finish. As the only two conference teams left unbeaten, the Wildcats and Hawkeyes go head-to-head Sunday to fight for the title of best Big Ten team thus far. Last season, the teams needed more than 70 minutes to finish the game. NU made a heroic comeback behind the goals

goal yet, he has made an assist and will look to make an impact against the Terrapins. “(I’m playing) more tucked into the left, trying to connect with all the other attackers,” Forsgren said of his role on the team. “I’m up-and-down, out wide, inside,

everywhere really … not as much isolation, just connecting.” The majority of Maryland’s offense has come in the second half of matches. The Terrapins have taken 63.2 percent of their shots in second half or later of their games and have scored four more goals in the same time frame. Similarly, NU has taken 65.2 percent of their shots in the second half or later of their matches, and has scored all of their goals in that time period. The Cats snatched away a win from Indiana’s grasp in their last game on Sept. 28 in Bloomington when sophomore Brandon Medina scored his first goal of the season in the 89th minute to take the match, which ultimately ended as a draw, into overtime. “It was a really hard-fought point,” coach Tim Lenahan said. “We were able to get the equalizer so I’m really proud of the guys and the way they battled back.” Most recently, the Terrapins lost against No. 16 Georgetown at home Tuesday night, ending Maryland’s shutout streak of more than 270 minutes. Before that, they picked up their first Big Ten win with a 2-0 victory over Wisconsin.

NU set to begin final playoff push

By Huzaifa Patel

the daily northwestern @HuzaifaPatel95

Northwestern currently sits at the bottom of the Big Ten standings, but the team is still focused on its ultimate goal — competing in the Big Ten Tournament. The Wildcats have the worst overall win percentage in the conference with zero conference victories. Coach Michael Moynihan stressed that the team needs two wins in the upcoming home games against No. 19 Illinois and No. 13 Wisconsin. “We definitely need to pick up a win, for the standings and for our confidence,” Moynihan said after last Sunday’s game against Ohio State. The Cats will have their hands full. Illinois currently sits fourth in the Big Ten with four conference wins. The Illini have had the Cats’ number in the past, leading the all time series at 11-4-3. They’ve also won three of the last four and two straight in Evanston. Illinois boasts a strong defense, posting six shutouts in 12 games played. They also strive off fast starts, going 9-1 when scoring the first goal. It will be important for the Cats to strike first and put pressure on the Illini to score. After last weekend’s losses, Moynihan stressed that the team was playing

No. 19 Illinois vs. Northwestern Evanston 5 p.m. Sunday

well offensively, sporting an effective, well-balanced attack. They just weren’t turning those chances into goals. This will be even more important against Illinois, which has been tough to even shoot on, let alone score. From August 22 to Sept. 26, the Illini held eight consecutive opponents to single digit shots. The game is setting up to be a defensive battle, as Cats freshman goalkeeper Lauren Clem has excelled this season by making 41 saves. With NU sticking to its lofty expectations, Sunday’s match is the first step toward a strong finish and playoff berth.

Opposing players to watch Jannelle Flaws

The senior forward from Glenview, Illinois has scored in five consecutive games, with 10 total in that span. This incredible streak has pushed her to second in the nation in goals scored. If the Cats want to pull out the upset, they’ll have to know where Flaws is at all times.
