Union to vote on agreement in two weeks

œœT

he faculty who were on strike are glad to be back to work and are eager to work with the administration. Hopefully this is a step toward improving faculty and administration relationships and the campus climate. —Dave Johnson Faculty Association spokesman

SARAH SCHNEIDER Daily Egyptian The Faculty Association and the administration signed a tentative agreement five days after the union called off a week-long strike. Dave Johnson, FA spokesman, said the agreement was reached Monday afternoon. He said the union’s Departmental Representatives Council — the governing body — will vote Thursday on the contract and the full membership will vote Nov. 28. The three Illinois Education Association unions that did not go on strike — the Association of Civil Service Employees, Graduate Assistants United and the NonTenure Track Faculty Association — will vote within the next two weeks on the tentative agreements they reached early Nov. 3, the day the FA strike began. The ACSE members will meet today, and the bargaining team will present the contracts and members will vote on the agreement, said ACSE President Cyndi Kessler-Criswell. She said she is glad bargaining is finished and looks forward reaching a long-term agreement. The House of Delegates — the governing body for the NTTFA — will meet tonight to vote on the agreement. If it is approved, NTTFA President Anita Stoner said mailin ballots will be accepted for two weeks and those on campus will vote shortly after. “In theory and in principal, we have agreed,� she said. GAU President Jim Podesva said members of GAU will meet Monday to vote. He said they have had a series of meetings to inform members of what is in the tentative agreement. “We think it is the best deal we could get,� he said. Tenured and tenure-track faculty went on strike for the first time in the university’s history between Nov. 3 and Nov. 10, leaving many classrooms with substitute teachers. Hundreds of pickets including students and other supporters were at 16 locations around campus with signs stating they wanted fair contracts for the FA. Students organized three rallies in support of their teachers, urging them to come back to the classrooms with contracts. “The faculty who were on strike are glad to be back to work and are eager to work with the administration,� Johnson said. “Hopefully this is a step toward improving faculty and administration relationships and the campus climate.�

Kaitlyn Fischer, a senior from Rockford studying equine science, watches Abby as she eyes a pool noodle Tuesday during an equine science class. The exercise is designed to

accustom horses to the touch of different objects. Stephanie Speiser, instructor for the class, said the equestrian science program at SIUC is the only four-year program in Illinois.

City Council votes to approve microdistillery City Manager Gill also commended for service ELI MILEUR Daily Egyptian The Carbondale City Council voted unanimously to approve a special use permit for the establishment of a distillery in town. Southern Sisters Spirits will construct the building off of Wood Road. The distillery will be in operation for no more than five years and closed to the public. According to Planning Commission minutes, it is the first phase of the operation and will involve developing a recipe and testing the

marketability of the product. "It would be imperative for the growth of this business to relocate to a larger, more appropriate location to allow for increased production," said Karen Binder of Southern Sisters Spirits. The council voted to amend the ordinance granting the special use to include provisions requiring the city be notified if the enterprise changes ownership and for the permit to be revoked should any federal or state licenses required for it be revoked. Binder said they will probably produce four to five gallons per "run." The number of runs per day depends on what is distilled, either grain or fruit, she said. The city also voted unanimously to review a proposed property tax levy to pay for public safety pension

obligations and the Carbondale Public Library, at the Dec. 6 meeting. According to the review, from 200209 the city abated the tax by subsidizing it with other General Fund sources. However, the city levied the tax to raise about $800,000 to pay for rising pension costs. Councilman Chris Wissmann said some people may not like to pay the property taxes, but they're necessary for the city to perform its services. "The one way we pay for things in government is with taxes, and if people don't like that, I don't know what to tell them," he said. The council also presented a resolution commending City Manager Allen Gill for his more than three years as the city’s top administrator. Please see COUNCIL | 3

COUNCIL CONTINUED FROM

1

Six of the council members voted yes, while Wissmann voted present. He remained seated while the rest of the council came forward to present Gill with a

plaque. The meeting was the last for Gill, who will retire Friday. Development Services Director Kevin Baity will step in as acting city manager. Gill said in an email the biggest accomplishments during

his tenure included keeping the city in the black during a financial crisis caused by flat revenues, delayed state payments and increasing pension and workers compensation costs. He said the biggest challenges he faced included the May 2009

Daily Egyptian and April 2011 storms. The challenges still facing the city include building a viable downtown with small business, walkability and upscale housing as well as improving aging housing stock, Gill said. "Looking back on three years

in Carbondale, I know there have been times when it seemed like crisis management, but we've accomplished a lot," he said at the meeting. The council will be meeting with candidates to replace Gill in December.

Debate team enjoys, wins competition ASHLEY ZBOREK Daily Egyptian With hours of rigorous research and weekly practices, the Saluki Debate Team pulls together to stay on top of the competition. Team members Michael Selck and Benjamin Campbell took first place in the Pat Kennedy Round Robin tournament hosted by University of the Pacific Nov. 4 to 6. Both say it is their love of learning and competitive nature that propels them to succeed. Selck, a junior from Blue Springs, Mo., studying speech communication said he loves debating because it has become an educational experience for him. “It’s awesome to be able to bounce ideas off of people with similar minds but different perspectives, because there are so few of us we have to concentrate those ideas and in the end it helps us to become more educated as a whole,” he said. Members of the team are recruited during high school competitions and offered scholarships to debate for SIU, much like athletes. Campbell, a sophomore from Springfield, Mo., studying political science and debate team member, said he enjoys going to competitions because of the great cohesion that the team has. “We are very close friends inside and out side of debate. Even during my free time I hang out with all of the guys,” he said. Todd Graham, director of the debate team, said the team is highly competitive and it travels the national competitive circuit. “We get the opportunity to travel around the nation and compete with many other teams from great universities,” he said. Joshua Rivera, a freshman from Chicago studying political science, said he thinks he is getting the ultimate college experience. “I get to hang out with my good friends

on the debate team all the time and I get to travel around the country and hang out with college kids from different universities ... I get to hear a lot of awesome stories,” he said. Graham said the life of a debater can be compared to that of an attorney. The majority of their time is spent doing research and only a little is spent on the glorious arguing that puts them in the spotlight. “Most of what we do is research ... because when we go to a tournament we don’t know what the topic of debate is going to be,” Graham said. “It is our job to try to predict possible topics like current events or politics and then we research those all week every week for the entire year.” During a tournament teams of two debaters compete in five to seven rounds per day with a different topic each round. After the topic is given the team members have 20 minutes to write down their arguments and then they debate. Campbell said competitions can become intense and stressful. “Generally we try to keep the mood light by telling jokes or listening to music,” he said. “It’s good to have a balance of thinking things through thoroughly getting all the arguments we need, but also not being too focused so that our personality shows through when we are debating.” Selck said debate gives him an opportunity to combine his love of knowledge and his competitive nature. “It’s thrilling to me that I could be at a tournament and people in the audience are writing down what I said because they liked the way it sounded. That’s what drives me to win,” Sleck said. Rivera said he thrives on the intensity of competitions. “The intensity is what is so appealing about debate to me," Rivera said. "I get this amazing adrenaline feeling when I’m competing that I don’t think I could get from anything else."

Good samaritan caught in the act

Renay Butler, a paralegal from Herrin, helps Earl Czajkowski, who is legally blind, cross Route 13 Tuesday in front of Burger King. Czajkowski said it was nice to see people help each other out, to which Butler replied that with all the traffic, she could barely cross the street herself. Czajkowski, who is a SIUC alum with a bachelor’s degree in marketing, said he was a contracted braille teacher through the state of Illinois, but due to budget cuts was let go. He said he taught three students, one at SIUC and two who were both blind and autistic, at their homes. Czajkowski said he is not scared to

cross the road because he has walked the same route between his home on West Main Street and the Carbondale Gas Station on Route 13 for six years. Czajkowski said he can see light and dark shapes and shadows. “If I’m in a tough spot, people help out,” he said. “Occasionally you get the people who want to jump you because you can’t see. You just got to be aware of your surroundings.” Czajkowski said he once ran for Carbondale City Council because he wanted a representative for disabled people on the council. “Sometimes you have to walk in someone else’s shoes,” he said.

STAFF COLUMN

This goes out to the cowards at Penn State

LAUREN LEONE Daily Egyptian I can’t wrap my head around the fact that Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State defensive coordinator charged with sexually abusing eight boys during a 15-year period, was arrested only just this year, when many had a chance to stop him more than a decade ago. Sandusky states he is innocent of all charges, but with multiple witnesses and 10 more possible victims coming forward this week alone, his innocence seems unlikely. Every single person who knew of the allegations against Sandusky could have turned him over to police, but they chose not to. Mike McQueary, the graduate assistant coach who witnessed Sandusky in 2002 having anal sex in the locker room showers with a boy around 10 years old, reported the incident the following day to Paterno but not to authorities. McQueary has been placed on administrative leave. It’s a smart move to not fire McQueary just yet. If he had been fired, others at Penn State may be reluctant to come forward with further allegations in fear of losing their job. Paterno was fired for failing to contact authorities and uphold “moral responsibility." The university’s

president, Graham Spanier, has been fired as well. Two administrators, Athletic Director Tim Curley and former Penn State Vice President Gary Schultz, were charged with lying to the grand jury and have been placed on administrative leave. According to the grand jury report, McQueary entered the football locker rooms in 2002 and heard “rhythmic, slapping sounds� from within the showers. He then looked into the showers and witnessed what he believed to be Sandusky having anal sex with a boy. McQueary immediately left the building. McQueary is now claiming he put an end to the abuse, although not physically. He also says he did contact the police — which contradicts the grand jury's summary of his allegation. My question is: Why did he not beat the living hell out of Sandusky and immediately call the police? The next day, McQueary reported the incident to Paterno, who then passed along the information to Curley, the athletic director. That’s it. A few meetings were held between the graduate assistant, Curley and Schultz, but that's it. Paterno, the man who arguably held more influence and power during his 46-year reign than any

other individual at Penn State, did not contact the police either. So what if Sandusky was his defensive coordinator at the time? So what if something so horrendous was brought to light in the next day’s headlines? So what if this brought unnecessary bad press to Paterno’s precious football program? Obviously, the fear of dismantling Penn State’s legacy overpowered anyone’s moral obligation to come forward. Both Curley and Schultz have been charged with perjury for lying about their knowledge of the accusations. While Curley downplayed the graduate assistant’s initial report of witnessing anal sex and described the sexual conduct as “horsing around,� Schultz testified that the allegations were “not that serious,� according to the grand jury report. Sandusky, who says he's innocent yet admits to showering with underage boys, also describes the incident as "horseplay." Spanier, who was aware of the 2002 incident, denied his knowledge of a similar 1998 incident in which Sandusky showered with a young boy. You can deny all you want that you weren’t aware of one allegation, Spanier, but you still knew about the other. You are still accountable. I bet many had hoped this would blow over. Instead, the Penn State’s legacy and its football program will

now suffer tenfold. And, it gets worse. Sandusky, who is being charged with 40 counts related to the sexual abuse of children, first encountered all eight victims through the Second Mile, a not-for-profit charity for vulnerable, underprivileged children he started in 1977. Let that soak in for a minute. Sandusky, who at one point was next in line to be Penn State’s head football coach once Paterno retired, also had the luxury of hiding behind the pristine, polished disguise of a savior. Second Mile’s CEO Jack Raykovitz announced his resignation Monday. The timing of Sandusky’s retirement in 1999 also suggests there’s more to this story. Why would anyone prematurely retire from coaching a team considered to be one of the top in the country? His reason was to spend more time with the children of Second Mile. However, according to the grand jury report, one victim recalls a different story. Known as “Victim 4,� one boy remembers Sandusky being emotionally upset after a meeting with Paterno in May 1999 — two months before Sandusky announced his sudden retirement. In the meeting, Paterno basically told Sandusky he was no longer being considered for the

head coaching position. After coaching the Nittany Lions for 32 seasons, Sandusky was quietly shown the door. The decision made by Penn State administrators to keep quiet may have been the most dangerous move of all. Lawyers for the alleged victims now say they are pursuing a civil lawsuit against the university because of the administration’s failure to act. To make matters worse, Sandusky is already out on bail. Why? The judge overseeing the case reportedly volunteered for Second Mile, according to her former law firm's website. Prosecutors requested that Sandusky pay a $500,000 bail and wear an ankle monitor when released. However, the judge instead ordered the alleged child molester be freed on $100,000 unsecured bail, which he only has to pay if he fails to show for court. The judge should have recused herself from the case because of her connection with Sandusky’s charity. My final thought goes out to the cowards: Forget your attempts to save Penn State’s legacy. Other victims are coming forward. One courageous move and this all could have been avoided.

GUEST COLUMN

Occupy Wall Street supporters need to look at the bigger picture I have a challenge for Occupy Wall Street supporters: take a real stand and Occupy the Federal Reserve. If you truly wish to protest economic injustice, focus your attention on the central banking system. The Federal Reserve promotes economic injustice, an aggressive foreign policy (i.e. war) and provides next to no transparency to the public or Congress. Wall Street is by no means innocent, but we are being naĂŻve if we insist on making them the scapegoat

for our anger and discontent. We must be smart in our dissent. Furthermore, I would like to remind the Occupiers that if we look at the global picture, we are the metaphorical 1 percent. Brutal poverty plagues much of the world’s population — and we are largely responsible. We are all aware (and apparently oblivious) to the existence of sweatshops. Are we equally aware of where our coffee and chocolate come from? What about conflict minerals? Where do you think

the minerals in your technological gadgets of choice (including cell phones and laptops) come from? Chances are miners in the Democratic Republic of the Congo are not fairly paid — if they are paid at all. Arguably most destructive of all is our thirst for oil which has caused untold misery. Even when we are not directly exploiting other countries for our consumer middle-class lifestyle, our country’s foreign interventionist policy often does it for us. The U.S. is known (particularly during the

Cold War) for toppling and installing dictators (who often murdered and tortured thousands of their own people) at will in Africa, South America and the Middle East. We must be honest with ourselves. While we may claim to be victims of social or economic injustice, we have already become the evil that we abhor. I challenge those dissatisfied with the status quo to make a real change. Be smart, be responsible, be active. Find out which presidential candidate is actively fighting the

social and economic injustice of the Federal Reserve and our aggressive foreign policy (there is one). Write letters to companies demanding ethical and fair labor practices, educate yourself and share what you learn with family and friends. You are the future of this nation — find and fight for the truth. Think for yourself, act accordingly and you can change the world. Marie Thompson Graduate Assistant English department

Study finds many patients shun free heart drugs MARILYNN MARCHIONE Associated Press ORLANDO, Fla. — Give people free prescription drugs and many of them still won't bother to take their medicine. Doctors were stunned to see that happen in a major study involving heart attack survivors. The patients were offered wellestablished drugs to prevent a recurrence of heart trouble, including cholesterol-lowering statins and medicines that slow the heart and help it pump more effectively. “My God, we gave these people the medicines for free and only half took it,” said one of the study’s authors, Dr. Elliott Antman of Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. In fact, the researchers couldn’t even give the stuff away: They had trouble just signing up patients to take part in the study. Nevertheless, Aetna, the insurance company that footed the bill, thinks this approach will save money in the long run and plans to start offering certain heart drugs free to some patients. In the study, patients offered medicines at no cost suffered fewer heart problems and saved $500 on average during roughly a year. It is no secret many Americans don’t follow their doctors’ instructions. In one survey, one-third said they didn’t fill a prescription or used less medicine than they should because of cost. The researchers in this study wanted to see what would happen if they took cost out of the equation. The results were disheartening. “Adherence in America is miserable,” lamented Dr. Eric Peterson of Duke University, who had no role in the study. He noted that only 10 percent of the patients were taking all the medicines they should one year after a heart attack.

The study was led by Dr. Niteesh Choudhry of Brigham and Women's, who presented the findings Monday at an American Heart Association conference in Florida. They also were published online by The New England Journal of Medicine. The study did not examine why people didn't take their medications. But doctors know that some forget. Most of these drugs mean three pills a day or more, for the rest of a patient's life. Also, some of these medicines carry side effects such as fatigue, lightheadedness, muscle pains, cough and even sexual difficulties for men. Still, heart attack survivors like Joan Ferraro, 53, of Freehold, N.J., said they can't imagine not taking prescribed medicines, though she sometimes forgets her pills over a weekend. "Why would you want to go through something like that again? It was the most horrific experience of my life. I would never want another one," she said. The study enrolled 5,855 Aetna members who had a drug plan as part of their benefits and were going home from the hospital after a heart attack. They were 53 years old on average, and three-fourths were men. The researchers had hoped to recruit 7,500 patients but scaled back when so few signed on. Preventive medicines were offered free to 2,845 patients and prescribed with the usual copayments for the rest. Copays for these drugs run around $50 a month. Roughly a year later, the share of patients who filled their prescriptions ranged from 36 percent to 49 percent in the copay group, depending on the drug, and was only 4 to 6 percentage points higher in the group that had no copays. Providing these medicines for free had a “distressingly modest”

effect on patients’ willingness to take them, Dr. Lee Goldman of Columbia University and Dr. Arnold Epstein of the Harvard School of Public Health wrote in an editorial in the medical journal. The Commonwealth Fund, a foundation devoted to improving the health care system, helped pay for the study, and some of authors consult for insurance companies. In the study, the total number of heart attacks, strokes, cases of chest pain or heart failure and other such problems was significantly lower in the group offered free medicine. That meant an additional two of every 100 people were spared such problems because they were offered free medicines. Doctors suspect the difference between the groups would have been greater if more people had actually filled their prescriptions. Costs dropped 26 percent for patients in the free drug group compared with the others, partly because of fewer doctor visits, lab tests and hospitalizations. After about a year, total medical costs for the insurer, including follow-ups, hospitalizations and doctor's appointments, averaged $69,997 for those with the usual coverage and $64,726 for those offered free medicines. That was not considered a significant difference statistically, but insurers looking at the bottom line would still view it as worthwhile. Dr. Lonny Reisman, an author of the study and chief medical officer for Aetna, said the company plans to offer some of these drugs free or with a reduced copay to some heart attack survivors and is considering doing do so for other chronic conditions such as diabetes and chronic lung disease. The study may persuade other insurers to do the same, Goldman and Epstein said.

Adoptees seek birth certificates under new law KAREN HAWKINS Associated Press CHIC AGO — After decades of searching in vain for her birth mother, Ami Dessen said the chance to see the woman's name on her birth certificate for the first time made Tuesday the most important day of her life. Dessen was among the first in line at the vital records office in Springfield to take advantage of a new Illinois law that gives her and other adoptees unprecedented access to their original birth certificates. She and others applied for the certificates

Tuesday to start a process that could take weeks or months. Before the law took effect, original birth certificates were generally sealed and new ones were issued once adoptions were final. The 2010 Illinois Adoption Act gave adoptees access to the records in stages. People born before Jan. 1, 1946, could request the certificates last year. Those born on or after that date were given access starting this week. The law allows access to birth certificates only for adoptees 21 and older. Dessen, 50, of Urbana said she’s spent decades running into dead

ends in her search for her birth mother. She was born in Urbana and has lived there almost her entire life. Doctors she was told had delivered her wouldn’t give her any information, and a man she tracked down as her mother’s lawyer told her she'd need a court order. Applying to see her birth certificate Tuesday was part of a long and emotional journey, she said. “I just want to have some closure,” she said. “(To) be related to somebody by blood and make me feel like a complete person.” She expects to get the record back in about four to six weeks, and

officials have told other adoptees the process could take months and doesn't have a guaranteed outcome. Though original birth certificates typically include birth parents' names and places of birth, the information may not always be available. For Joel David Collins, applying is worth the gamble as he seeks information on his family's medical background to pass along to his two sons. “It’s really weird when you walk into a doctor’s office and they ask for your history, and you can’t give them any,” Collins said. Collins, 50, of Skokie, said his reasons for wanting to track down

his birth mother have changed over the years. When he was younger, he was more curious about his ethnicity, and he had the fantasy he says all adopted children share about whether a reunion would be like “the Hallmark movies.” Now, he's conflicted about seeking out his biological mother because he doesn't want to upset her life. But “I also want her to know she did good by me” and that he ended up with a loving family. If he gets a name, he may try to track down medical information in a way that doesn't involve meeting anyone, he said.

Moccia said one factor between the two schools is the geographical attention they receive. He said he considers SIU’s fanbase to be more regional, while Mississippi has more of a state-wide following.

Nevertheless, he said the atmosphere created by the Saluki events has benefited the university and created both revenue and enrollment increases. Moccia said the athletics department has actively used social media and advertisements, and has tried to work closely with student-based organizations.

Sports Sam Donets, the communication director for the Dawg Pound, said the success of universities goes hand-in-hand with the fan support the teams receive. “That’s really the only way how people brag about their colleges, unless you go to an Ivy League school,” Donets said. “Other than

Daily Egyptian that, everyone always refers back to their football team or their basketball team with their college.” He said it is important for a school to have the type of fan organization such as the Dawg Pound to assist alumni support and give the student body something to reflect on after graduation.

“It’s all about pride and being able to show it,” Donets said. “The more fans, or the more pride, the better your school is. Everybody wants to be a winner.”

Salukis to celebrate Thanksgiving with the Lowerys BRANDON WILLINGHAM Daily Egyptian While many students return home for Thanksgiving, the SIU basketball players will spend the holiday in Carbondale with their Saluki family. Because of a hectic game schedule, the Saluki’s aren’t able to travel home and instead will spend Thanksgiving with head coach Chris Lowery at his home. The schedule is tight every year, so Chris Lowery and his wife, Erika Lowery, open up their home to the players. Because the players can’t experience Thanksgiving with their families, Erika Lowery said she cooks them a big meal so they’ll feel like they’re at home. “We try to instill that just because they’re here playing as players, they’re still a part of our family,” Erika Lowery said. “That is what the big thing is with Chris and his players. We want them to know, along with their parents, that when they come to SIU they’ll be taken care of like family.” Erika Lowery said inviting the players to Thanksgiving also helps

the Lowery family build relationships with the team off the court. “We get to know the players more intimately when they’re away from basketball,” Erika Lowery said. “They get to open up and talk to me and not their coach. That’s two different sides of coach on the court and coach off the court, because he’s a totally different person.” Erika Lowery said although Chris Lowery encourages athletes to do well in the classroom and on the court, he also emphasizes the importance of family. Sophomore guard Diamond Taylor said it’s hard being away from his immediate family during the holiday because it is also around his birthday but he said his team is family as well. “It’s a cool experience to be able to go to coach Lowery’s house as a team,” Taylor said. “Mrs. Lowery always cooks up a big meal for us, and it helps the team’s camaraderie. We go over there and we play games and shoot pool, so it’s pretty cool to hang out and chill at coach’s house.” Junior point guard and cousin of Chris Lowery, Kendal Brown-Surles,

said Thanksgiving at the Coach’s home is like a big family dinner, with the other team members as his brothers. “Nothing can replace Thanksgiving with your family, but this is the closest thing to a family it can get,” BrownSurles said. “I think it makes our bondage as a team stronger and brings us closer together — a brotherhood.” Taylor agreed. “This is my home away from home,” Taylor said. “I’m with these guys more than family, but I enjoy it. I have to appreciate it as much as I can.” Brown-Surles said he’s always excited about the food because of Erika Lowery’s cooking. “Food-wise, it’s great,” said BrownSurles with excitement. “Mrs. Lowery knows what she’s doing in the kitchen, and it reminds me of home. From the turkey and ham, mac-n-cheese, greens and her famous banana pudding. It definitely has the home feeling when we’re all together.” Although most students would like to spend Thanksgiving with immediate family, the Lowerys have made it possible for the team to enjoy the holiday as one huge family.

The SIU men’s basketball team huddles up Tuesday before the game against Saint Louis University at the SIU Arena. The team builds its camaraderie both on and off the court, and plans to spend Thanksgiving together at the home of head coach Chris Lowery.

From Charlotte to Chicago, NFL emotions boil over STEVE REED Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A heavy dose of testosterone temporarily replaced professionalism in the NFL from Chicago to Charlotte. Blowout games brought out the worst in some players on Sunday — and not just the losers, but in the winners as well. In Chicago, Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford got upset after his third interception and grabbed Bears cornerback D.J. Moore by the helmet. Stafford threw him down, setting off a confrontation involving several players. The Bears won 37-13 but Moore was ejected from the game. Panthers coach Ron Rivera — a former Bear — said Monday he was "embarrassed" by the actions of both his team and the Tennessee Titans. The teams combined for 21 penalties for 191 yards, including four personal fouls and three unnecessary roughness calls in Tennessee's 30-3 victory in Charlotte. Rivera said he was upset over the "chippiness" of both teams, particularly in the final two minutes in a game high on trash talk and low on sportsmanship.

"When the game is that situation just play it out — stop talking," Rivera said. "You're winning, great. If you're losing, stop being frustrated and do your job. And that goes for both teams. I don't want to speak for coach (Mike) Munchak, but I think both teams got chippy at the end. This is professional football, act like professional football players whether you're winning or you're losing." Players involved in the altercations could face possible fines. An NFL spokesman said that each play will be reviewed individually. Rivera said the lack of sportsmanship bothered him. "It really does, because this game is about competition and competing and being the best," Rivera said. "It's not about all of that other stuff that goes on. There should be more pride in winning and losing than I saw from both teams. That's just my opinion." Rivera removed receiver Steve Smith for the final play after he ripped the helmet off cornerback Alterraun Verner while making a block. Smith was penalized for holding, but nothing else. That came after a play in which Titans

defensive end William Hayes and Panthers offensive tackle Jordan Gross were flagged for personal fouls on the same play after exchanging late shoves. "Most of our losses this year have at least been where I felt like we went down fighting," Gross said. "We went down fighting in the end but not the kind of fighting you want to do." Panthers wide receiver Legedu Naanee said it was the dirtiest game he's played in during his five NFL seasons. "That was the worst I've been a part of," Naanee said. "They were talking throughout the game and with them talking and us not executing it built up for both teams." Rivera said he pulled Smith out of the game late because his receiver was frustrated. Just a few plays earlier, Smith had seen a Titans player spear one of his teammates, to which Smith — who at 5-foot-9 does not back down to anyone — seemed to take exception. "I think Steve went to make a physical block and the guy reacted and they got into a little bit of skirmish and I wanted to alleviate the situation," Rivera said. "I would have done that to anybody."

In fact, he did. Earlier in the game, Rivera took defensive end Charles Johnson out for a couple of plays after he shoved offensive tackle David Stewart in the face with both hands, drawing a 15-yard penalty for unnecessary roughness and giving the Titans an automatic first down after they'd been stopped on third-and-15. What the referees didn't see was Stewart head-butt Johnson before Johnson retaliated. Regardless, Rivera said, "We can't have that on a football field." In Chicago, Moore didn't show much remorse after he left the game. "When you are going after my livelihood, my neck, and you're trying to hurt me, I just can't let that go," Moore said after Stafford's actions. Stafford said he wasn't trying to injure Moore, but that he was trying to get the cornerback off him. "I guess he didn't like the way I did it," Stafford said. "He wanted to ask me about it." There was also some tension earlier in the game. Chicago's Jay Cutler had his helmet ripped off by Ndamukong Suh after a run, and

he got slammed to the ground by defensive tackle Nick Fairley on a late hit in the third quarter. Emotions were riding high in the Meadowlands as well. Jets coach Rex Ryan apologized after a video surfaced of him using an obscenity while angrily responding to a fan at halftime of their 37-16 blowout loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday night. "I obviously, you know, made a mistake," Ryan said Monday. "I was full of emotion and just popped off, and obviously I know I represent the National Football League and I know I represent the Jets. I know it was a mistake and I apologize. This is who I am. I made a mistake." The NFL is looking into that situation. Patriots coach Bill Belichick was on the winning end of that game, but he, too, was under fire after he reportedly used a vulgar phrase while coming off the field after the game. The New York Post reported that Belichick had his arm around his son, Stephen, when he made the remark regarding the Jets' defense. "I don't remember it that way," Belichick said at his news conference Monday.

SIU falls hard in Division I debut against Saint Louis JOE RAGUSA Daily Egyptian Saint Louis took the early lead against SIU and never looked back. “The first minute or two was ok, and then after that it was all downhill,� said senior guard Justin Bocot. “It was just (lack of) effort, on everybody’s part.� Saint Louis University (2-0) used a 29-5 run to pull ahead of SIU (0-2) in the first half, and SLU kept its foot on the throttle on its way to a 61-42 victory over the Salukis Tuesday at the SIU Arena. During that 29-5 run, Billiken forward Cody Ellis hit a three at the 3:54 mark in the first half that put Saint Louis up by 22. Ellis had 11 points on 4-8 shooting with two three pointers during the Billikens’ run in the first half. “The three pointers were important, and they were wide open,� said SLU head coach Rick Majerus . “He had some other open looks, made some good passes, but he also took three charges. He did a good job of positioning defensively.� The lone returning starters from last season for SIU, seniors Mamadou Seck and Bocot, accounted for two of the 15 points SIU scored in the first half. The Salukis hit just four shots on 22

attempts in the first half compared to the Billikens’ 15 of 28. “Shots just aren’t falling for anybody. Our bigs didn’t score; I didn’t really produce much either,� Bocot said. “We just got to get in the gym more and take it more serious when we’re in there.� SIU flopped out of the gate in the second half as it was held without a field goal until Bocot’s three pointer with 7:28 left in the game made the score 53-34. SIU never trailed by less than 17 points in the second half. “They really exploited us and some of the stuff that we were trying to do to them,� said head coach Chris Lowery. “We just weren’t aggressive enough and we made way too many mistakes.� Bocot and freshman forward Treg Setty led the scoring for the Salukis with eight points apiece while Seck added seven points and nine rebounds, but was held without a field goal. “We can’t win with Seck getting 0-for from the field and Dantiel (Daniels) 0-for at the same time,� Lowery said. “We got them looks and unfortunately for us, we didn’t make any of those shots but you have to give (Saint Louis) credit, they did a good job. That’s a veteran team.�

ISAAC SMITH | DAILY EGYPTIAN

Freshman forward Treg Setty struggles for a rebound against the Saint Louis Billikens Tuesday at the SIU Arena. The Salukis lost the game with a final score of 42-61. The loss put the Salukis at 0-2 in the regular season. As a team, SIU shot 8-39 from the field with 25 of its 42 points coming from the free throw stripe. “That’s the issue for us. Can

you make free throws and can you make jumpers,� Lowery said. “We got to make the easy ones first, and the easy ones first will lead to

others down the road and that’s a confidence thing with our shooters.� SIU goes on the road to Northeastern Sunday.

Saluki Stadium attendance consistent after two seasons CORY DOWNER Daily Egyptian Fan attendance at university sporting events not only creates a unique home-field advantage for the team, it also aids in the overall university experience. To create this environment, the university depends on different marketing schemes and the help of student organizations to promote the events. SIU athletic director Mario Moccia said this effectively boosts the success of SIU. The average attendance per game at Saluki Stadium was down from 2010 by a slight margin, according to the Saluki Athletics website. SIU had a total of 50,702 fans in 2011, an average of 10,140

per game, compared to 65,338 in 2010, a 10,889 average. The schedules differed with five 2011 home games and six in 2010.The drop in attendance between the two seasons is subject to skewed numbers. Moccia said unfortunate events could have cost the program a few thousand fans. “Some of the attendance, at least in the sport of football, going into the new stadium, we were coming off of a conference championship as well as the excitement of a new stadium,� Moccia said. “This year it was bad luck for us that we had fall break on one of the football weekends.� To put things in perspective, the Salukis traveled to Oxford, Miss., for the second game of the season

to play Ole Miss. The attendance of that game was 58,504, nearly 8,000 more fans than the Salukis had in their stadium the entire season. While differences exist, there are close similarities between the two schools. According to both university websites, Ole Miss has less than 21,000 students, about 1,000 more than SIU. According to the 2010 Census from the Census Bureau, Oxford, has less than 19,000 residents, while Carbondale has less than 26,000. Another difference is that Ole Miss competes in the Southeast Conference, the conference that has supplied the previous five Bowl Championship Series title teams. Please see ATTENDANCE | 11

Empty seats surround Saluki fans Saturday at the last home football game of the season at Saluki Stadium. Though home game attendance was steady throughout the season, there has been a decline since the beginning of the season. The final game attendance was 7,447, the lowest of the year.
