Newton board OKs financial forecast

Milton-Union’s offensive line has paved the way for plenty of Bulldog celebrations this season

The Newton Local School board approved the district’s five-year financial forecast Wednesday at its regular board meeting. According to Nick Hamilton’s report, the district will lose approximately $149,000 in revenue from the previous year from the state and can anticipate a reduction in funding from the state of $150,000 per year. “We basically break even every year,” Hamilton said after the meeting.

PLEASANT HILL “Our finances are in good shape thanks to forward thinking,” said Newton Local School Superintendent Pat McBride. The five-year forecast reports the district will remain in the black only if its three-year 0.75 percent traditional income tax levy is renewed this November. “It’s not going to take long before we run in to trouble (if the levy isn’t passed),” McBride said. “We have a pay freeze — all of us. We are paying more for our health insurance.

Attrition. We’ve used every way to save money, there’s simply no place to cut.” The annual revenue generated by the renewal of the 0.75 percent traditional income tax is $475,000 of the district’s general operating fund. Hamilton said for example, a new school bus is approximately $110,000. The district has an approximate total budget of $5.2 million per year. Without the renewal, the district would quickly deplete its cash reserves of approximately $1.8 million down to negative $5,000 in

repertoire of haircuts — including, for men, the “regular” haircut, burr and flattop — took a decent amount of time and practice. She recalled attempting a flattop when she first started out. “The man said, ‘I’ll come back in two years when you learn how to cut a flattop. And then he kept his word and came back two years later and said, ‘Do you remember me?’ And I cut his hair till he passed way,” she said. Grigsby also worked with funeral homes to style hair, including that of her grandmother, mother, father and husband. Family members were stunned to learn that she styled her husband’s hair, Grigsby said, as she grew a little teary-eyed. “Strangers don’t know how they wear their hair. I wanted to do it,” she said. “It’s the last thing you can do for them to make them look good.” Styling the hair of elderly people who seldom leave their homes is another cherished aspect of her job. “The highlight of their day is to see you come in,” she said. “And a couple of them say, ‘You’re the only visitor I’ve had all day.’” Grigsby says her entire career — which shows no sign of stopping — has been filled with fond memories.

“There were good times around this barbershop,” Grigsby reflected as she sat in the barber chair. “You look back and you might not have realized it then, but you really, really had it. You want to do something for people and feel comfortable in what you’re doing.” She also recalls neighborhood children coming to play chess; they’d even sometimes skip school to hang out. When the principal would call their parents to find their whereabouts, they’d always know to call the barbershop. “I’d load them up in my car and take ‘em to school,” she said. Her very first client, Kevin Littlejohn, returned to the shop Oct. 9 with his parents Don and Betty. He had his very first haircut at 15 months old — 50 years ago. To commemorate the occasion, Grigsby had a photo taken, which now resides on her work station. Littlejohn is only one of many lifelong customers. Many relate their first salon visit with events in their lives, she said. “Some say, ‘How has it been 50 years? Did I start going to you before I started working with that one boss?’” Grigsby said. “It’s been a really good life,” Grigsby continued. “I thoroughly, thoroughly enjoy what I do. Most people don’t like their jobs. But I really, really do.”

Centre College in Kentucky. Ninety minutes after the initial disagreement over foreign policy, the two men clashed sharply over steps to reduce federal deficits. “The president likes to say he has a plan,” Ryan said, but in fact “he gave a speech” and never backed it up with details. Biden conceded Republicans indeed have a plan, but he said if it were enacted, it would have “eviscerated all the things the middle class care about.” The debate took place a little more than a week after Obama and Romney met in the first of their three debates an encounter that has fueled a Republican comeback in opinion polls. With Democrats eager for Biden to show the spark the president lacked, he did so. Unprompted, he brought up the video in which Romney had said 47 percent of Americans pay no federal income tax, view themselves as victims and do not take responsibility for their own lives. “It’s about time they take responsibility” instead of signing pledges to avoid raising taxes, Biden said of Romney, Ryan and the Republicans. The serial disagreements started immediately after the smiles and handshakes of the opening. Ryan said in the debate’s opening moments that U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens had been denied sufficient security by administration officials. Stevens died in a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11. “Not a single thing he said is accurate,” Democrat Biden shot back. Republicans and Democrats alike have said in recent days the presidential race now approximates the competitive situation in place before the two political conventions. The two men are generally separated by a point or two in national public opinion polls and in several battleground states, with Obama holding a slender lead in Ohio and Wisconsin. Both the president and Romney campaigned in battleground states during the day before ceding the spotlight to their political partners for the evening. In Kentucky, Biden and Ryan seemed primed for a showdown from their opening moments on stage, and neither seemed willing to let the other have the final word. They interrupted each other repeatedly and moderator Martha Raddatz of ABC as well. With Democrats eager for Biden to show the spark the president lacked, he did so. Unprompted, he brought up the video in which Romney had said 47 percent of Americans pay no federal income tax, view themselves as victims and do not take responsibility for their own lives. “It’s about time they take responsibility” instead of signing pledges to avoid raising taxes, Biden said of Romney, Ryan and the Republicans. But Ryan quickly turned to dreary economic statistics 23 million are struggling to work, he said, and 15 percent of the country is living in poverty. “This is not what a real recovery looks like.” Medicare was a flashpoint, as well. Ryan said Obama’s health care plan had diverted $716 billion from the program for seniors and created a new board that could deny care to patients who need it. Democrats “haven’t put a credible solution on the table,” he said. “They’ll tell you about vouchers. They’ll say all these things to try to scare people.” Biden quickly said that Ryan had authored not one but two proposals in

which seniors would be given government payments that might not cover the entirety of their care. Otherwise, he said, the Romney-Ryan approach wouldn’t achieve the savings they claimed. Unlike Obama, Biden had no qualms about launching a personal attack on Romney. After Ryan argued that Romney’s plan would pay for reduced tax rates by eliminating tax loopholes for the wealthy, Biden noted that on a recent interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Romney defended the 14 percent tax rate he pays on his $20 million income as fair, even though it’s a lower rate than some lower income taxpayers pay. “You think these guys are going to go out there and cut those loopholes,” Biden asked, addressing the national TV audience. Across 90 minutes, the two men agreed precisely once. That was when Ryan, referring to the war in Afghanistan, said the calendar was the same each year. Biden agreed to that, but not to the underlying point, which was that it was a mistake for Obama to have announced a date for the withdrawal of the remainder of the U.S. combat troops. The fiercest clash over foreign policy came in the debate’s opening moments, when Ryan cited events across the Middle East as well as Stevens’ death in Libya as evidence that the administration’s foreign policy was unraveling. The Republican also said the administration had failed to give Stevens the same level of protection as the U.S. ambassador in Paris receives. Biden rebutted by saying that the budget that Ryan authored as chairman of the House Budget Committee had cut the administration’s funding request for diplomatic security by $300 million. On the nation’s economy, both men were asked directly when his side could reduce unemployment to 6 percent from the current 7.8 percent. Both men sidestepped. Biden repeated the president’s contention that the nation is moving in the right direction, while Ryan stated the Republican view that economic struggle persists even though Democrats had control of both houses of Congress during the first two years of Obama’s term. “Where are the 5 million green jobs” we were told would be created? Ryan said to Biden. Obama campaigned in Florida during the day. Mocking recent changes in Romney’s rhetoric, he told a rally in Miami rally, “After running for more than a year in which he called himself severely conservative, Mitt Romney is trying to convince you that he was severely kidding.” Romney visited with 93-year-old Billy Graham in North Carolina before speaking to an evening rally in Asheville, N.C. “Prayer is the most helpful thing you can do for me,” he told the evangelist. For Biden, Thursday night’s debate was his first since the 2008 campaign, when he shared a stage with Sarah Palin, then John McCain’s running mate. Ryan spars frequently with Democrats during debates on legislation on the House floor and in the House Budget Committee, which he chairs, but not in a one-on-one encounter covering 90 minutes and a virtually unlimited range of topics. For all their differences, the two men shared a common objective, to advance the cause of their tickets in a close race for the presidency and avoid a gaffe that might forever seal their place in the history of debates.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP San Francisco Chronicle on gas prices: When gas prices jump — no, make that soar — there are plenty of villains and few solutions. Levels nearing $5 per gallon are infuriating motorists and punishing businesses. The best answer isn’t very consoling: Pump prices are dynamic and uncertain. Mistakes, shortages and even suspected greed can unhinge the market, especially when these factors combine. Bay Area drivers should heed advice that the bill may drop soon. The reasons for the bump include refinery disruptions such as the fire at Chevron’s Richmond facility last month, a contaminated pipeline that shut down, and short supplies as producers shift from summer to winter fuel mixes. Speculative buying of supplies may also be a factor, leading some gas stations to close down and wait out the turmoil.

Not long ago, American leaders would’ve had good reason to be concerned about the national security implications of another Chávez term. Venezuela sits atop the world’s largest proven reserves of oil and is a major petroleum exporter to the United States. Chávez has repeatedly rankled U.S. leaders by providing support for leftist Colombian guerrillas and sponsoring socialist political campaigns in Ecuador, Bolivia and Nicaragua. Yet his so-called Bolívarian revolution has proved hollow. Chávez’s Latin American political allies have found that, without the same kind of oil income Venezuela enjoys, revolutionary socialism is almost impossible to sustain. Chávez’s opposition has tried repeatedly to stop the president through elections and referendums, but it’s never been able to muster the necessary voting muscle. His continuation in power for another six-year term will no doubt rob Venezuela of the economic growth opportunities that are spurring job creation and investment elsewhere in the region. Venezuela’s professional class of lawyers, doctors, engineers and entrepreneurs have fled the country in droves. The more U.S. and other regional leaders ignore him, the less his bluster seems to resonate. For all his antics and rhetoric, Chávez should increasingly be dismissed for what he is — a toothless tiger.

DOONESBURY

Dog-gone it, I’ve become one of ‘those’ people I never thought I would ever be "one of those people." You know who they are. They are friends or family members who are obsessed with their little bundles of joy. Their lives revolve around how they eat, and more importantly, what everything looks like after they have eaten and analyzes every detail like how they play and interact with others. You hear “those people” tell lengthy stories of the most annoying, mundane tasks that have been done by millions of others before them for millions of years. You run in to “those people” at the park and see them showing off the new toys and outfits. You endure awkward conversations which usually go something like: “Look at this face! How could you not love this face? You are just the schweetest whiddle ting that ever was! Yes you are! Aren't they just precious?” You know, dog people. Ever since I moved to the country, I had toyed with the idea of getting a dog. We have so much room to run. It would be instill a sense of

responsibility in my 8 year-old son. I just didn't know I would like this fur covered thing so much. All spring long, I searched animal shelters in every surrounding county for "the perfect dog." Well folks, I found him. He even was wearing a tuxedo. No really, my dog is way more awesome than your dog. He’s small but has a big bark, which he only uses sparingly to alert me. He stands on his hind legs and “begs.” Awe, it is so cute. I know this dog is amazing because others around me think so too. This is how perfect Shorty, our miniature Border Collie is: My dad loves this dog.

— Greg Taylor St. Pat's Soup Kitchen Board Member

Yes. I know. It shocked me as well. My dad likes this dog so much that he even scoops him up and takes him in a tractor cab with him. He doesn't even like me in his tractor cabs. My sisters have admitted that they are jealous of the amount of attention this “granddog” is getting. I also can’t believe I’m using words like “granddog.” I am doing better with the pet separation anxiety. Although I did take a vacation day right after I adopted Shorty just because I couldn't leave him alone in a strange place. Evan does help a lot with the Shorty chores. But this dog is all mine. He even waits up late at night and knows when I come home after work and greets me before he can finally get some rest. Dogs really are loyal. It's not all wine and wet noses. I swore to myself that this new dog would sleep outside in the barn in a humble bed of straw. Today, you can find him on the bottom left corner of my full-sized bed as he keeps a watchful eye of

the drive way from the bedroom window. Shorty even goes with me as I drop Evan off to school and rides to and from lots of places — including a recent trip to the city where we found a pet-friendly hotel. Yep. I was one of "those people" who brought their dog on a road trip. I used to judge people like me. Why can't they just leave the dog at home? Can't they find someone to make sure the dog is OK for a few nights? People kept asking me “Is there a dog show or something?” Nope, I just had to bring the furbaby along for the ride. And now I’m one of those people who use the word “fur-baby.” Ugh. See what this adorable thing has done to my soul? So to all you dog lovers out there, I am so sorry I used to judge you and the dog hair plastered all over your clothes, your car and your home. I totally get it now. “Twin” Melanie Yingst appears on Fridays in the Troy Daily News. How much is that doggy in the window?

Piqua man pleads guilty to assault BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media wsanders@dailycall.com A Piqua man who used his vehicle as a battering ram in April after he traded punches with a motorcyclist on the North Main Street Bridge in Piqua in a road rage incident and fled the scene, entered a plea of no contest to a charge of felony aggravated assault on the day his trial was to begin Thursday. MOORE Jason M. Moore, 28, was found guilty by Judge Christopher Gee of the fourth-degree felony. The original charge was felonious assault. Moore will next appear in court at 2 p.m. Nov. 26 for his sentencing hearing and after a presentence investigation is completed. He faces between six to 18 months in prison. On the evening of April 19, Moore and another motorist, Dusty Hogston, then 43, of Piqua, were traveling southbound along the bridge when Moore cut off Hogston, who was on a motorcycle, before the two stopped at the intersection of North Main Street and

TROY Riverside Drive. A verbal altercation then turned physical. The two men traded punches before Moore struck Hogston with his car, a 1997 Eagle Talon, and fled the scene. Moore was apprehended the next day on a police tip and his vehicle was later recovered from a garage in the 800 block of South Miami Avenue in Sidney. Hogston was airlifted to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton and later recovered from his injuries. Court documents show that Moore has been cited for numerous traffic citations dating back to 2004, including several violations for seat belts, child restraints, having an expired license, running a red light, use of unauthorized plates, fictitious plates, expired plates, speeding, operating a vehicle without a valid license and amplification. Currently, Moore has at least four points against his driver’s license, court records disclose.

Up for the challenge Phillips, Styx bandmates inspired to put on memorable performance BY JIM DAVIS Staff Writer davis@tdnpublishing.com icky Phillips has learned plenty from years of touring and making music. But the Styx bassist still gets psyched up by things he might be able to improve on. So when Phillips and the rest of classic rock band Styx take the stage Saturday at Hobart Arena, they’ll be inspired to put on a show worth remembering. “I think that it’s the unknown that motivates me,” he said Thursday during a phone interview from New Jersey. “I play golf, and as soon as you have the best round of golf in your life, you go out and suck the next time out. So with music, even though you have gotten accomplished at it, there’s always these intangibles involved, and that challenges you to go out and ‘up’ the bar from night to night. “It’s a challenge every “We’re day,

out there doing what we love, and it’s a fortunate place to be. I don’t take it for granted, and I have great respect for these guys and their dedication.” — Ricky Phillips

and it always will be.” The band will roll into Troy for an 8 p.m. show copresented by Hobart Arena and the I-75 Newspaper Group, which includes the Troy Daily News, Piqua Daily Call and Sidney Daily News. Despite record sales in the millions — and bragging rights as the first rock band to register four consecutive multi-platinum albums — Phillips said they’re still learning. “We might walk off stage one night with our clothes still soaking wet from the show (and someone will want to go over a certain facet of the performance),” he said. “It’s always something that somebody notices that focuses on making the next show better.” Formed in the early 1970s — and with multiple hit singles and multi-platinum-selling albums to its credit — the band comes to town this weekend for a show Phillips said will include a combination of radio hits, fan favorites and perhaps a few hidden gems. “We get a lot of people who see us multiple times in one year … so we try to change it up a bit,” he said. “You can expect some new and different songs, and some deep cuts you haven’t heard from before … and then the obvious hits that you would expect to hear.

“We’re on the road 200 days a year, so every show is a little bit different.” Phillips and the band — which also includes Tommy Shaw on guitar and vocals, James “JY” Young on guitar and vocals, Lawrence Gowan on keyboards, Todd Sucherman on drums, and band co-founder Chuck Panozzo on bass at selected shows — certainly have enough music to form a hit-packed set list. The band first reached the Top 10 with “Lady” in 1974, and hit the jackpot with 1977’s breakthrough record “The Grand Illusion,” which went triple-platinum and featured hits “Come Sail Away” and “Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man).” The band added to its resume with hits such as “Renegade” and “Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)” and became a rock radio station staple in the early 1980s with the release of “Paradise Theatre” in 1981. The concept album yielded five singles, including the hits “The Best of Times,” “Too Much Time on My Hands” and “Rocking the Paradise.” Although the band has not recorded a major hit since the 1980s, the band has been popular on several classic rock tours in recent years and has performed with Def Leppard, Foreigner, .38 Special and Kansas. Phillips — who is in his 10th year with the band —

said being part of a tightknit group of dedicated musicians such as Styx has been incredibly rewarding. “It’s going by like a blip. It’s the longest I’ve ever been associated with any band,” he explained. “I’ve never had this type of experience where I’ve had 10 years with the same group of musicians and been able to see what can happen and how a band can grow with the type of time put in trying to perfect something that is impossible to perfect. You just put on the best show you know how to do.” Although Phillips said he did not “follow” Styx during its heyday, he had a definite appreciation for the band’s music. “I will say that, when I discovered Styx, I was intrigued by their approach with the strong vocals and the strong guitars. But there’s also a lot of keyboard-driven songs, and I liked that,” he said. “As far as being a musician myself, I’ve kind of felt like I’ve only done things that I’ve wanted to do. I’ve turned down some things that would have made me a ton of dough. But I just can’t phone it in. This band has gotten better with every year gone by, and that’s done by design. “That’s something I love about this band,” he continued. “They’re very meticulous (about making music). The song might sound like a pop song, but it might go

Classic rock band Styx is scheduled to perform at 8 p.m. Saturday at Hobart Arena in Troy.

TROY through three or four different time changes. And whatever the subject matter is, it’s always unique.” Phillips said each band member brings their own special talent to the mix each night, and shared a bit of perspective on each of them: • “Lawrence is probably one of the most gifted musicians I have ever worked with, but off-stage he’s a kook. He’s a complete cutup; a comic 24-7,” Phillips said. “But as funny as he is off the stage, he puts that same intensity into the music. He’s studied. He knows his instrument. This is a guy who rose to the top and is still reaching for the top.” • “Tommy … was playing professionally very young, and the guy is just a prolific songwriter and a consummate musician,” he said. • Phillips said James “JY” Young is the type of guitarist others emulate. “He’s a (Jimi) Hendrix freak who also likes Bo

Diddley.” • “I met (Todd Sucherman) playing sessions in Los Angeles,” he said. “He’s just one of those drummers that a bass player wants to work with every day, and now he’s one of my best buddies.” “Everybody has their own distinct personality (and) each person also reflects how they interpret the music. I guess the recipe for what ends up being served up as Styx every night is a big part of that reflection,” Phillips added. “We’re out there doing what we love and it’s a fortunate place to be. I don’t take it for granted, and I have great respect for these guys and their dedication.” Tickets for Saturday’s 8 p.m. show are still available and can be obtained online at www.hobartarena.com or at the Hobart Arena box office.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

If you’re sure of what you want, tell mother the case is closed Dear Annie: I am 29 and have been a teacher in a small town for seven years. During this time, I have had two serious relationships, but neither worked out. Recently, my mother has been on me about moving so I can find someone to marry and have kids. I understand that she doesn't want me to be alone, but, Annie, I have wonderful friends here. Some are as close as family. Right now, I am OK with being single, but I know that I have a tendency to resist change. My mother thinks I will be alone for the rest of my life and regret it. I told her I would consider moving, but I really don't want to leave this place. I love my friends, my job and my students. What should I do? My mother is so upset that it makes me stressed. — All Talked Out Dear Talked Out: How important is it to you (not your mother) to be married? Not everyone needs a life partner to lead a happy, fulfilling life. Raising children is an entirely separate issue and could involve adoption or fostering. And many teachers consider their students the only "children" they need. It is difficult to meet prospective marriage partners in areas where the dating pool is small. Even online matchmaking might require relocating. If you can be happy without marriage, tell your mother the subject is closed. But if you are simply too frightened to get out of your comfort zone, please work on it, with counseling if necessary. You shouldn't have major regrets down the road. Dear Annie: I am 37 and have a rich life with wonderful friendships and a great career. But I am deeply hurt that my sister has never expressed an interest in being a part of my life. She takes things too seriously, often holds grudges over minor criticisms, and assumes the role of victim when anything hurts her feelings, which is often. She married a solid guy, but he's the type who sees the glass as half-empty. I am returning to my hometown after living abroad for a year, and I wrote about seeing them. My brother-in-law responded (my sister rarely does), but his interest seemed half-hearted, and he made all kinds of excuses about stress from work and not really being able to do much but rest on the weekends. My sister has never once visited me in all the cities I've lived in. She rarely inquires about my life. I am fun loving and happy. It hurts that she continually rejects me, and I wonder why I care about a relationship that is so one-sided. I have talked to her about it, and she always says she'll be in closer contact, but it never happens. Do I need to let this relationship go? — Wish I Had a Sister Dear Wish: Your sister is oversensitive and finds it difficult to be closer, but she is not toxic, and we don't believe she is trying to hurt you. She could actually be jealous of the life you are leading. She seems incapable of the warmth you want, but you apparently have many friends who fill that need. You don't have to cut her off. All you need to do is adjust your expectations. Please accept your sister's limitations and reconnect in small doses. Dear Annie: I read the letter from "Angry and Embarrassed." As a mother of three small children, going out to dinner gives me a break from cooking. I try to teach my children manners and tell them that making a mess is not OK, but this lady's grandchild is 16 months old and cannot understand that yet. When my kids make a mess at a restaurant, my husband and I apologize and then leave a more generous tip for the server. But I do not feel that these parents were rude in not cleaning up a few noodles that landed on the floor. — Done That

SUDOKU PUZZLE

HOW TO PLAY: Complete the grid so that every row, column and 3x3 box contains every digit from 1 to 9 inclusively. Find answers to today’s puzzle in tomorrow’s Troy Daily News. YESTERDAY’S SOLUTION:

HINTS FROM HELOISE

How does a hint actually become a Heloise hint?

Dear Readers: Many of you often write wondering why some hints are chosen and printed in the column and others are not. For a hint to be printed in my column, it must work (yes, I do test them), it must be safe, appeal to most readers and not have been printed recently. Here’s how the week generally breaks down, with each day having a special feature: Annie's Mailbox is written by Monday — Sound Off and Fast Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, Facts longtime editors of the Ann Tuesday — Consumer Landers column. Please email your Connection questions to anniesmailbox@comWednesday — Heloise cast.net, or write to: Annie's Mailbox, c/o Creators Syndicate, Kitcheneering and Food-Related 737 3rd Street, Hermosa Beach, Hints CA 90254. Thursday — Classic Heloise

Hints from Heloise Columnist Friday — Travel Hint and Technology. Saturday — Gardening, Home Improvement and Pet Pal. Saturdays used to be all-pet-related for many years. I asked my readers, “Do you want to keep it that way, or spread it throughout the week?” The response was that you love the pet hints but wanted

them spread out. Each newspaper may run the column differently. Some run it every day, while others run it only certain days of the week. I would love to see how it appears in your paper. Please send me the column (preferably the whole page) from your newspaper and include your name, address and the name of your paper. I will randomly pick 50 readers to receive a Heloise pamphlet. Can’t wait to hear from you! — Heloise BOOMING BOWL Dear Heloise: Did you know that a glass or ceramic bowl can be used as an amplifier to listen to music on your smartphone? Place the phone in a clean bowl, and

instantly you have a speaker. — A Reader in Iowa TRAVEL HINT Dear Heloise: My family loves to take road trips. Sometimes the kids get a little antsy, and we often hear “Are we there yet?” I have come up with a way to keep them entertained in the car. Before we leave, I pack “surprises” in plain brown lunch sacks and staple them closed. Surprises can be anything from a new toy to a book or a candy treat. Each sack is then labeled with a time: “10:30,” “11:30” and so on. At that time, the kids can open their surprise. They get so excited with anticipation, they forget how long we have been in the car. — A Reader in Alaska

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your partner or spouse might change jobs in the next few years. This could force you to stand on your own two feet. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) In the next few years, partnerships will be challenged. Those that endure will make adjustments, whereas some relationships will end. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Prepare yourself, because you’re entering two-to-three-year period of hard work. At times, you might feel overwhelmed, but you will get a lot done. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Many of you will have increased responsibilities with children in the next few years. All of you will ask yourselves, “What do I really want to be when I grow up?” LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You feel a strong urge now to secure your home base. During the next few years, many of you will make major repairs or a residential move in order to do this. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Many of you will have a job change or make a residential move in the next few years, even if you don’t think this is likely. (Chances are high that this will happen.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) At this stage in your life, you’re giving serious thought to your values. You want to know what matters. You don’t want to be 90 years old and thinking, “I blew it.” SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) In the next few years, you’ll enter a new sandbox, because you are going to reinvent yourself in the next seven years. It’s going to be a whole new ballgame. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) It is totally appropriate to go through closets and cupboards, getting rid of what you no longer need. In next few years, you’ll downsize, letting go of places, people and possessions. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) At this stage in your life, you have to balance what you give to others with what you give to yourself. You must maintain your own integrity. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Aquarians are finally coming into a time of harvest. In the next few years, you see what works and what doesn’t. Expect promotions and kudos. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is a time of preparation. It will behoove you to take courses or do whatever you can to improve your career or enhance your life in the next few years. YOU BORN TODAY You are bold about going after what you want because you take your career seriously. You’re a keen critic and like to expose the sacred cows in society. You delight in puncturing naive beliefs.) Many of you develop a particular technique that you use. You’re not casual; you’re intense. Your year ahead is the beginning of a new nine-year cycle. Open any door! Birthdate of: Lenny Bruce, comedian; Margaret Thatcher, politician; Sacha Baron Cohen, actor/comedian. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Friday, Oct. 12, the 286th day of 2012. There are 80 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 12, 1962, the devastating Columbus Day Storm, also known as the “Big Blow,” struck the Pacific Northwest, resulting in some 50 deaths. On this date: • In 1492 (according to the Old Style calendar), Christopher Columbus arrived with his expedition in the present-day Bahamas. • In 1810, the German festival Oktoberfest was first held in Munich

to celebrate the wedding of Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of SaxeHildburghausen. • In 1870, General Robert E. Lee died in Lexington, Va., at age 63. • In 1933, bank robber John Dillinger escaped from a jail in Allen County, Ohio, with the help of his gang, who killed the sheriff, Jess Sarber. • In 1971, the rock opera “Jesus Christ Superstar” opened at the Mark Hellinger Theatre on Broadway.

• In 1997, singer John Denver was killed in the crash of his privately built aircraft in Monterey Bay, Calif.; he was 53. • In 2000, 17 sailors were killed in a suicide bomb attack on the destroyer USS Cole in Yemen. • Today’s Birthdays: Comedian-activist Dick Gregory is 80. Broadcast journalist Chris Wallace is 65. Actress-singer Susan Anton is 62. Actor Hugh Jackman is 44. Actor Adam Rich is 44. Actor Kirk Cameron is 42. Olympic gold medal skier Bode Miller is 35. Actor Josh Hutcherson is 20.

Social media helps battle mayhem in Morgantown MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Morgantown police got a least a dozen solid tips from a Facebook photo album it created in hopes of identifying people involved in last weekend’s fires and rioting, and Chief Ed Preston said his detectives were working Thursday to confirm identities. It’s the first time the department has used social media to make arrests and interview witnesses, but Preston said it probably won’t be the last. “It’s actually had a larger, faster effect than what we anticipated,” he said, generating not only comments online but also private messages and phone calls from people dismayed by the danger and destruction that followed WVU’s 48-45 win over Texas last weekend. Police are archiving YouTube videos and Facebook and Twitter

photos, primarily using images students themselves share. They’re also posting images taken by surveillance teams, news media and the general public. Thanks to cellphones, “the anonymity they may have experienced in a crowd before is not as great,” Preston said. Although reluctant to label it such, public shaming is a key part of the strategy that city and WVU officials came up with this week during a private meeting that followed last week’s mayhem. More than 40 were deliberately set, and students threw rocks, beer bottles and other objects at police in riot gear, who dispersed them with pepper spray and a chemical gas. That brings the number of deliberately set fires to 181 so far this year, said Fire Marshall Ken

Tennant. Street fires account for 101 of those, while another 80 were set in large commercial trash bins. That’s the fourth-highest number of fires in the 15 years the department has been logging them. The record is 274 in 2003, Tennant said, followed by 245 fires in 1998. Only three more, and the city will surpass the 184 fires that were set in 1999. Both Morgantown and WVU have tried for years to crack down on fire-starters, expelling students for bad behavior and invoking state arson laws rather than charging offenders with misdemeanors. But it hasn’t worked. Dean of Students Corey Farris says rioting is not limited to WVU; similar scenes have played out in Ohio, Pennsylvania and South Carolina. They also unfold after World Series, Super Bowl, Stanley

Cup and NBA championships, he said. Still, he believes the culture at WVU can change. More students and non-students have been condemning such behavior, and that peer pressure is critical. “We want to be able to go up and down the street and honk horns and high-five and pour out of our houses and celebrate,” Farris said. “But when you’re smacking your hands on cars as people are driving down the street or knocking over light posts or lighting fires in Dumpsters, that crosses the line.” Preston and Farris say both police and WVU administrators will be using new tactics this weekend when the Mountaineers play at Texas Tech, and next weekend, when they’re at home against Kansas State in what promises to be the biggest game of the season.

Preston won’t divulge specifics for fear of escalating tensions. “I want to defuse this. I don’t want these things to be repeated,” he said. Preston worries his officers may eventually have to respond with force and said it’s fortunate the latest rioting resulted in no deaths, life-threatening injuries or catastrophic damage. “We are very careful and cautious in how we respond,” he said. “But we do have plans in place that, should it escalate or get more violent, we have the ability to respond.” Farris, meanwhile, said WVU administrators and student leaders will join police and fire officials in going door to door in problem neighborhoods to warn people about the consequences of bad behavior.

Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is and eventually fake bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable.

TROY DAILY NEWS • WWW.TROYDAILYNEWS.COM

Tippecanoe expects to see Tecumseh’s best effort tonight BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor jbrown@tdnpublishing.com Tippecanoe coach Charlie Burgbacher knows what to expect from Tecumseh tonight. The exact same thing the Red Devils saw from Stebbins last week. “We can expect them to play the best football they’ve played all season,” Burgbacher said. “Probably better even than they played against (Springfield) Shawnee last week. That’s what happens at this point in the season when you’re fighting for a division title and a spot in the playoffs.” Undefeated Tippecanoe and Tecumseh both currently have the inside track on the Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Trail Division title, sharing 2-0 records in division play. The Red Devils routed the last-place

TIPP CITY THE BLITZ: ONLINE EDITION Don’t forget to go to www.troydailynews.com and look under the “Sports Highlights” section for the latest edition of the TDN staff’s “The Blitz: Online Edition” video discussion show each week on Thursday or Friday before heading out to that week’s games. Bellefontaine Chieftains two weeks ago, but last Friday they had to win a brutal battle against a determined Stebbins team — even despite the Indians’ 2-5 record. Stebbins even held a 2013 lead in the third quarter — the first game

Tippecanoe has trailed in all year — before Jacob Hall broke off three long touchdown runs and the defense clamped down to hold onto a 34-20 win. “I think a lot of people underestimate Stebbins,” Burgbacher said. “They do some things pretty well and have managed to play well against us in the past, so they came into the game with a lot of confidence. Also, you take three scores off the board for us in the first half — a fumble stopped one drive, an interception another and then right before the half we had a 70-yard screen pass called back on a hold. “You’ve got to put everything in perspective. It was not that we played poorly. You’ve got to give Stebbins some of the credit. They played well.” And it’s that perspective that has helped the Devils maintain the level of success they have had

Tippecanoe’s Jacob Hall is currently second in the county in rushing this season with 1,145 yards in only seven weeks. this season. “Our focus is on worrying about what we do, what we’re capable of doing — not what the opposition does against us,” Burgbacher said. Still, the Red Devils

WEEK 8

BRADFORD (6-1, 5-1) at MIAMI EAST (4-3, 4-2): Miami East has lost two consecutive Cross County Conference games against Covington and TriCounty North. The road will not get any easier for the Vikings this week against Bradford — winners of three straight since falling to Covington in Week 4. The Railroaders have done it exciting ways, and they’ve done it without star running back James Canan — both in a Week 5 victory over Tri-County North in which Canan was hurt early. Bradford won the game after both teams traded kickoff return touchdowns and the Panthers missed the point-after. Canan is back, though, and will be a tough task for the Viking defense. If the game is a shootout, Bradford is definitely the favorite, but if Miami East can slow the Railroaders down, the Vikings gain a slight edge.

NATIONAL TRAIL (6-1, 5-1) at COVINGTON (7-0, 6-0): Covington hasn’t allowed more than 14 points in any of its seven wins this season. With National Trail coming to town, the Buccs — who sit alone atop the Cross County Conference standings — can’t afford to have a defensive letdown against a team that likes to spread the field and throw the ball. Trail has scored over 40 points three times this season, but last week against Bethel, the Blazer offense struggled in a 9-7 win. Covington has passed every test it has faced this season with flying colors. And now, the Buccs face yet another tough test against a Trail team that has exceeded expectations this year in the CCC. ANSONIA (1-6, 1-5) at BETHEL (2-5, 1-5): Ansonia and Bethel are two teams that have had up-and-down seasons. But in recent weeks, both teams have got on the winning trail in the Cross County Conference, with the Bees beating Twin Valley South in Week 6 and the Tigers edging winless Mississinawa Valley 14-6 last Friday. Bethel played National Trail to the wire last Friday, and the Bees will look to get back on track this week against an Ansonia team that has given up over 40 points a game in each of its six losses this season. GREENVILLE (1-6, 0-2) at (PIQUA (3-4, 1-1): A whopping 126 points. That’s the unheard-of amount of offense the Piqua defense allowed during a recent three-game losing streak that included losses to Beavercreek, Springboro and Trotwood Madison. The Indian ‘D’ looked more like itself last week in a 12-3 victory over Sidney, and this week the Indians play host to 1-6 Greenville — which is averaging only 10 points per game. Expect Piqua to continue to look like itself for one more week. LEHMAN (3-4, 2-2) at UPPER SCIOTO VALLEY (0-7, 0-3): Lehman is probably the hardest team in the area to figure out. After a huge win over Waynsefield-Goshen put the Cavaliers in the hunt for the NWCC title and for a Division VI, Region 24 playoff berth, Lehman fell flat in a 40-33 loss to Fairbanks — which entered that game with only one victory. Now Lehman travels to winless Upper Scioto. But the Cavs know that they can’t look at records and expect an automatic win. They have to work for it.

THE PREDICTORS

Trotwood at Troy Tecumseh at Tippecanoe Dixie at Milton-Union Bradford at Miami East Ansonia at Bethel National Trail at Covington Greenville at Piqua Lehman at Upper Scioto Cincinnati Bengals at Cleveland Browns Ohio State at Indiana

away from hosting a home game in the first round — stand to pick up a metric ton of computer points in the following three weeks. Tecumseh and Kenton Ridge, the Devils’ next two opponents, boast 5-2 records, while in Week 10 Tippecanoe will travel to 43 Springfield Shawnee — which was the state runner-up in Division III and is the current reigning CBC Kenton Trail champion. First things first, though. “We’re going to see the same thing out of Tecumseh that we’ve seen in the last five or six years — they’re going to be a well-coached football team, they’re going to come in ready to play, and they’re going to come in confident in what they do on the field,” Burgbacher said. “We expect them to play the best football they have all season.”

MIAMI COUNTY LEADERS DIXIE (5-2, 2-1) MILTON-UNION (6-1, 3-0): Milton-Union and Dixie are in the thick of things in the Southwestern Buckeye Conference Buckeye Division title race, but if the Bulldogs want to host a playoff game, a win this week is key. Milton is currently sixth in the Division IV Region 16 playoff rankings. In the coming weeks, Milton has a chance to move up with quality wins over Dixie and Waynesville (5-2) — the team that ousted the Bulldogs from the playoffs last season. But first, the Bulldog defense must rise to the occasion against a Dixie offense that has put up a lot of points this season.

The Games

have only been truly tested a handful of times this season. Against Milton-Union, the score was tied at halftime before the Devils scored four straight second-half touchdowns to win 27-0. Take that game and the Stebbins game out of the equation, and the Red Devils have won by an average score of 53.6-6.8. “In the Milton game, we were pushed — and the kids responded,” Burgbacher said. “Against Stebbins, we were pushed — and the kids responded. That’s going to happen during the course of a season, maybe even a few times. But the kids put themselves in a position to win the games, and they came up with a couple of big stops, got some fumble recoveries and pulled them out.” Now the Devils — who sit in fifth place in the Division II, Region 8 playoff standings, one place

Troy wins GWOC tourney, tops Elks Staff Reports

MIAMI COUNTY

CENTERVILLE — All season long, Troy has done things right — this or that — to win games, earning its first-ever spot in the Western Ohio Greater Conference championship game. And Thursday night, the Trojans — who already won the GWOC North Division — put all of those pieces together at once. Not only did Troy (18-4) play a complete game in all facets,

they got revenge on the team that defeated them in the very first game of the season at home — the top-seeded Centerville Elks — by winning in four on the road 26-28, 25-22, 25-20, 25-23. “We really did put them all together tonight,” an ecstatic Troy coach Michelle Owen said. “Jenna (Selby) was unstoppable — they didn’t have an answer for her. Cassie (Rice) had a lot of big

digs in the back row. Lauren (Freed) went on some big serving runs again. Our front row put blocks down. We passed well. Our serve receive played great. Everyone played well. Everyone contributed. “It’s awesome. The girls played so hard tonight, and they played as a team.” The only speedbump Troy hit on its way to the title was in Game 1. “The Johnson sisters

Tippecanoe’s Sierra Nellessen sizes up a forehand shot during a first-round match Thursday at the Division II District tournament at Centerville High School. Nellessen advanced to Saturday’s semifinal round, earning her second trip to the state tournament in her career.

CENTERVILLE — With her goal in sight, Sierra Nellessen wasn’t about to let mere mind games derail her. A call for a line judge by her opponent, a five-minute delay to get new balls — and even a tough-to-handle ground game on the court itself — wasn’t enough to keep the Tippecanoe

Trojans fall 2-1 Staff Reports TROY — Even after finishing the regular season 15-1 and winning the Metro Buckeye Conference title, Troy Christian coach Brian Peters didn’t mince words when it came to his Eagles’ performance Thursday night. “We just played our best game of the season,” he said. Hard to argue. The Eagles — missing three starters thanks to injuries and playing up two divisions sizewise — jumped in front of Division I’s Edgewood Cougars then found a way to retake the lead after the game was tied up in the second half, claiming a hard-fought 3-2 victory Thursday.

MIAMI COUNTY Amanda Slone bent a corner kick into the goal near post in the first two minutes of the game to shock the Cougars, then Maddie Rench put home a penalty kick with 20 minutes left in the first half to put Troy Christian up 2-0. Edgewood fought back, though, cutting the deficit to one before halftime and tying things up within the first 10 minutes of the second half. And that’s when Lauren Peters and Jordanne Varvel won the game. “Lauren sent a cross from the right side of the field all the way to the left, right through their two backs,” Peters said.

WADA: Detectors may have known of Armstrong doping WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — World AntiDoping Agency DirectorGeneral David Howman said Lance Armstrong pursued what appears to be a systematic doping program for a decade “probably with the knowledge” of people who were charged with detecting drug cheats. Howman told New Zealand’s LiveSport Radio on Friday that Armstrong’s repeated claim he has never tested positive for a banned substance could no longer be regarded as proof of his innocence. “What seems to have happened in this particular scenario is that it went on

for many years under the noses of those who were supposed to be detecting it and at times probably with their knowledge,” Howman told the New Zealand program from WADA’s headquarters in Montreal. Howman said Armstrong had finally been caught because fellow cyclists had broken a code of omerta (silence) and confessed their parts in a “conspiracy to defraud the sport.” He did not specifically identify the agencies or individuals he suspected may have turned a blind eye to doping by Armstrong or his teams. But he referred to “suggestions” contained in

the report of the United States Anti-Doping Agency that irregularities in some Armstrong tests might not have been investigated as rigorously as they should have been. Howman said failed doping rug tests were no longer the benchmark needed to identify cheats. He used the case of Olympic track and field athlete Marion Jones to illustrate flaws in the system. Once considered the fastest woman in the world, Jones served prison time and gave back her five medals from the 2000 Sydney Olympics after being convicted of lying to federal investigators

about using performanceenhancing drugs. “Marion Jones didn’t fail a test either and she competed for seven years, won all sorts of gold medals and world championships, was tested about 160 times and none of them was positive,” he said. “Lance Armstrong has (been) tested more than a couple of hundred times. None of them were positive in terms of recorded positives. There have been suggestions that there may have been a couple of them that were not fully investigated so they remain at the moment suggestions. “What we have to say is

the science can catch some but it doesn’t catch them all. What we’ve been talking about over the last few years is that where there is evidence gathered in relation to cheating and it can be gathered by the police or by customs or by other people then it should also be brought together to sheet home a sanction process against the cheating athlete. That’s what they’ve done in this case.” Howman said the result of USADA’s investigation of Armstrong was a “compelling” case against the seven-time Tour de France winner. “It’s compelling, it’s very

thorough and you can’t just sit back and say it’s a collection of statements from liars,” he said. “It just doesn’t read like that. It reads like 10 years of systematic doping and that’s been through the mill of sworn testimony so if anyone is found out to have lied under oath they can face charges of perjury and in the United States you can go to prison for that. This is compelling. This is a very compelling series of informants who have given evidence, trying to help their sport get clean and what they’ve done is broken the (code of silence) to do that and I suppose that’s taken quite a bit of courage.”

Missed opportunities

Nats force Game 5

Reds blow 2-0 series lead, many chances against Giants CINCINNATI (AP) The Cincinnati Reds gave up a lot to get Mat Latos, hoping he’d push them to the next level. Given his chance Thursday to do just that, he was gone in the fifth inning. Buster Posey’s grand slam capped San Francisco’s six-run burst against Latos, propelling the San Francisco past the Reds 6-4 Thursday in the clinching Game 5 of their best-of-five NL division series. “I’m not making excuses,” Latos said. “This game’s 100 percent on me.” Ahead 2-0 in the series, the NL Central champion Reds lost the final three games at home. Cincinnati won 97 games during the regular season and took two more in the playoffs at San Francisco, but that 100th victory proved to be elusive. Acquired in the offseason from San Diego for pitcher Edinson Volquez and three former high draft picks, Latos matched his career high in wins while going 14-4 this year. He then turned in four innings of one-run relief in Cincinnati’s 5-2 win at San Francisco in Game 1 after ace Johnny Cueto was injured in the first inning. The duel between Latos and Matt Cain in the final game was scoreless when the Giants erupted for all of their runs in the fifth. Latos was charged with each of them. Gregor Blanco led off with a single and scored on Brandon Crawford’s triple into the right-field corner. One out later, Crawford scored when drawn-in rookie shortstop Zack Cozart couldn’t handle Angel Pagan’s chopper behind the mound for an error. Marco Scutaro walked, and Pablo Sandoval singled to load the bases, setting up Posey’s 434-foot slam off the facade of the second deck, right above Latos’s name on a narrow scoreboard. The hit left the Reds in a hole that was nearly impossible to climb out of, Reds first baseman Joey Votto said. “Buster Posey’s swing was a series-changer,” said Votto, who had two hits. “That made it very difficult to come back. You know

WASHINGTON (AP) — Joyous, bouncing teammates waiting to greet him at home, the red-clad crowd raucous as can be, Jayson Werth yanked off his red batting helmet with two hands and thrust it a dozen or more feet overhead. A little less than two years ago, the Washington Nationals showered Werth with millions, persuading him to come show them how to win. On Thursday night, with one swing of his black bat, Werth delivered a game-ending homer to extend his club’s surprising season and wipe away whatever disappointments marred his days in D.C. Werth led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a 13-pitch at-bat against reliever Lance Lynn that ended with the ball landing beyond the wall in left field, giving the Nationals a tense 2-1 victory over the defending World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals and forcing a deciding Game 5 in their NL division series.

“That’s the way that game should have ended: Jayson Werth hitting a home run,” Nationals manager Davey Johnson said. “He has not hit that many this year. … Unbelievable. Great effort on his part.” The best-of-five series will end Friday night in Washington, with the winner advancing to face the San Francisco Giants in the NL championship series. The starters will provide a rematch of Game 1, which Washington won, with Gio Gonzalez on the mound for the NL East champion Nationals, and Adam Wainwright for the wildcard Cardinals. “It’s what you play all season for, and what you work out all winter for, and what you get to spring training early for,” Werth said. “We have a chance tomorrow to take that next step. I know my teammates will be ready. And the city will, too.” The homer was Werth’s first of the series, the 14th of his postseason career.

Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos walks off the field during Game 5 of the National League division series against the San Francisco Giants Thursday in Cincinnati. they’re going to throw the kitchen sink at us.” That was it for Latos, who gave up seven hits and six runs five earned with one walk and four strikeouts. Latos seemed to be distracted by a couple of calls he didn’t get from plate umpire Tom Hallion while walking Scutaro, but that wasn’t the pitcher’s only problem, manager Dusty Baker said “What kind of got the inning going was I don’t know if it was a ball or strike call that he lost on Marco Scutaro,” Baker said. “Then, after that, they started finding holes. That was a big hit that (Sandoval) got barely inside the shortstop. Then he had two strikes big time on a dangerous hitter who he had gotten out in Buster Posey. Plus, Buster’s hit into 19 double plays, and we were hoping to get another double play at that time, but the pitch wasn’t where he wanted it to be,

and it wasn’t a double-play pitch.” Baker thought about taking Latos out before he faced Posey. “He was dealing, but yeah, there was consideration,” Baker said. “We discussed it, and he just made a couple of bad pitches and he still had plenty left in the tank. He still had two strikes on Posey. He just happened to throw one right down the middle.” Outfielder Ryan Ludwick, who played with Latos in San Diego, hit a solo home run and an RBI single in the ninth. He didn’t mind seeing Latos on the mound to start the critical game. “He’s a horse,” Ludwick said. “He’s a gamer. He’s full of intensity, and he’s going to be around this league a long time. He’s got good stuff, and he’s a competitor.” Brandon Phillips hit a two-run double in the fifth inning, and Ludwick led off

the sixth with his second homer in two games and third of the series. Cincinnati had runners at first and second with one out in the ninth, but Jay Bruce flied out to left field on a 12-pitch at-bat that included 10 foul balls. Scott Rolen struck out against Sergio Romo, ending Cincinnati’s season. The Reds left 11 runners on base, lifting their total to 28 in their three home games as they went 3 for 24 (.125) with one extrabase hit while batting with men in scoring position. “We battled, but battling wasn’t enough,” Ludwick said. “The guys on the other side are human beings, too, and you’ve got to give them credit. We hadn’t lost three games in a row at home all year. They made good pitches with runners on base and kept us away from the big hit. This team lived and died all year with the big hit.”

BELEK, Turkey (AP) — Justin Rose beat Tiger Woods by a stroke Thursday to set up a title match with Lee Westwood in the World Golf Final. The two Englishmen, who played on the victorious European Ryder Cup team, will meet Saturday, with the winner getting $1.5 million and the runner-up $1 million in the eight-player exhibition. Rose, who holed a sand wedge shot for an eagle at the 14th, finished with a 2-under 69 while Woods was at 70. Westwood shot a course-record 61 in the semifinals to beat 2011 Masters champion Charl Schwartzel of South Africa by six shots. Westwood had two eagles and eight birdies, including a 50-footer at the last on the Sultan Course at Antalya Club. His score would have been even better if not for a double bogey at the fourth hole. “It was just one of those days I was on a roll. I am just pleased to be swinging the ball well because I’ve got no hangover from the Ryder Cup, and that’s nice,”

Westwood said. “It seemed the hole just got bigger and bigger with each hole I played, and that hasn’t happened for a while. “It’s also a very satisfying feeling to be playing in a tournament like this, and if Justin had not beaten Webb Simpson earlier today I would not have had the opportunity to go out and shoot 61. So a lot of things have to go your way and I have capitalized on a bit of fortune.” Rose tried to pull his cap over his face when his wedge shot at No. 14 took a couple of bounces and disappeared into the hole. Woods also broke out in a smile. “I was really struggling early on today and to can that shot at 14 was easily the turning point,” Rose said. “In proper match play you would only win the hole, but in this format I’ve picked up two shots on Tiger and it’s help me win the match.” Rose then birdied No. 13, and after his eagle a hole later both birdied No. 16 before ending with two pars apiece.

NHL, NHLPA meet in attempt to end lockout NEW YORK (AP) — The NHL and the players’ association resumed meetings Thursday to try to end the monthlong lockout. Representatives of the NHL Players’ Association arrived in the morning at league headquarters, where the sides met for about five hours Wednesday in an effort to work out a deal. Although it has been a week since the NHL called off the first two weeks of the regular season, that

sting will be felt full force Thursday when what should have been opening day passes without a puck hitting the ice. The sides met twice Wednesday. If talks go well Thursday, or if the scheduled work can’t be completed, there could be another day of discussions Friday. Any bit of optimism at this point would be embraced. “I think we’re making progress in a number of the areas that were discussed,

which include health and safety, drug testing issues, medical care,” NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr said. “They were good discussions. It’s a shame that they are going on in the midst of a lockout when we could be doing it while we’re playing, or we could’ve been doing it a month ago or two months ago.” The NHL’s top two executives Commissioner Gary Bettman and Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly

met with the NHLPA’s main negotiators executive director Donald Fehr and his brother Steve for nearly an hour Wednesday morning to assess where the sides were on Day 25 of the lockout, but there were no concrete discussions on the troublesome core economic issues that are preventing a deal from being struck. A four-hour session stretched into evening and included miscellaneous legal topics. The health issues involved seeking

multiple medical opinions on injuries, and who should make determinations when a player is healthy enough to return to action after being hurt. “We have some disagreements in those areas,” Daly said. “When you get to this point of the discussions on some of those areas, that is to be expected, so we’re kind of refining some of the things we continue to have disagreements on. “We had no discussion of the major economic issues

or system issues, so that continues to be a disappointment from our perspective.” There are still no plans to delve into how the sides will split up hockey-related revenue that was in excess of $3 billion last season. “You often don’t know whether you’re making progress until you look back on it,” Steve Fehr said. “We were just sort of discussing the overall status of the bargaining and where the parties are.”

■ CONTINUED FROM B3 first set, and when another close call outside the line didn’t go her way on set point, she barked out that she wanted a line judge. “It’s a tactic,” Nellessen said. “It was her last resort for the second set, maybe to get in my head.” And in the middle of the first changeover of the second set, play was stopped after a request to inspect the balls being used in the match to make sure older ones from other matches didn’t get mixed in. None of it slowed down Nellessen in the slightest. “I was like, ‘Do whatever you want. I got this,’” Nellessen said. “I knew I just had to play my game and shut out everything on the other side of the net.” “I was really proud of the way she played,” Tippecanoe coach Rhonda Rains said of Nellessen. “Once she went up in the tiebreaker, I knew she would be okay. You could see (Watuski) start to come apart right there. “Sierra is more mentally tough, and that (winning the tiebreaker) was the confidence boost she needed.” The first set was rough throughout. After routing Wyoming’s Meredith Hennessy 6-0, 6-2 to start the day, Nellessen — whose strength is her play on the baseline — found herself matched up against a player with punishing ground strokes, particularly from the backhand side, in Watuski. Nellessen was able to force enough errors, get enough help from timely double faults and hit enough clutch winners to keep even throughout the opening set, though, and a dropshot at the net gave her the match’s first break to put her up 5-4. Watuski broke right back to tie it at 5-5, though, and held to go up 6-5 and force Nellessen to serve to keep the set going. Nellessen, down 15-40, battled her way back to force a deuce and then forced Watuski to hit it into the net on a crafty second serve to force the tiebreaker. “If I pulled my shot at an angle, she’d go down the line. So I hit it deep down the middle so it was harder for her to do that,” Nellessen said. “I kept her in the middle of the court and played my game. I’m a scrapper. I get to everything.” Nellessen then took an early 4-2 lead in the tiebreaker, a lead that she held all the way to match point at 6-4. “I was just thinking ‘one more point. I’ve got to get it,’” Nellessen said. “I wasn’t going to dump the set after all that I put into it. I knew I had to win the tiebreaker.” Watuski hit it a full two inches wide, but a line judge was called in regardless. Nellessen made sure he wasn’t needed once. She pressed the advantage by maintained her consistent play while Watuski crumbled more and more into a frustrated state. Even falling behind love-40 on her own serve, she rallied to win six straight points to take a 3-0 lead — which quickly became 4-0. With Nellessen up 5-1, Watuski was able to fight off three match points, but Nellessen hit a winner down the line during the second deuce to close out the match. “I knew I couldn’t let her back in. I had to keep her on that downward spiral,”

■ CONTINUED FROM B3 No. 1 all season. “They left tonight. And we just kept balls in play. They have really good hitters, but our defense was really something else.” Selby finished with 16 kills, five blocks and five aces for the match. Emily Moser had eight kills, three digs and a block, Freed had eight kills and 13 digs, Jillian Ross and Jen Monnier both had seven kills and a block, Mackenzie Rice had 37 assists, Cassie Rice had 22 digs and two kills and Abby Brinkman had six digs and an ace.

Nellessen said. “You can’t give them anything when they’re falling apart like that. They’ll rise back up.” Now Nellessen will return to Centerville on Saturday playing in the semifinal round and looking to improve her seed for the state tournament — which she will be returning to for the first time since her freshman year. “It’s the best feeling in the world,” Nellessen said. “I’ve trained so hard, worked all summer long. I’m really excited.” • Doubles Trouble Both of Milton-Union’s and Tippecanoe’s doubles teams had phenomenal seasons, capped off with a trip to the Division II District tournament Thursday at Centerville. But the district level can be a tough place, and all four teams saw their seasons end in the first round. Bulldog sectional champions Jesica Ferguson and Brooke Falb fought hard in both sets but in the end fell to Cincinnati Hills

Christian Academy’s Kimmi Bolsinger and Ali Harker 6-3, 6-4. And the sectional runners-up, Claire Fetters and Kayla Smith, pushed Bellbrook’s Rachel Heinz and Megan Yates in the first set before falling 7-5, 6-1. “Both teams competed, which is something positive,” Milton-Union coach Sharon Paul said. “I don’t think we did a very good job of closing today. Both teams got ahead in sets but just couldn’t find ways to close them out. “Still, out of those four girls, there’s only one senior — and two sophomores. So I see a lot of chances in the future for them.” Tippecanoe’s Katie Stenger and Taylor Sutton won the first set against CHCA’s Kaity Venters and Emily Kabalin, but the opposition roared back and won a nearly three-hourlong war, 1-6, 6-4, 7-5.

Newton 2, Bethel 2 PLEASANT HILL — Bethel traveled to Newton for a Cross County Conference matchup on Thursday and forced a tie 22 tie after connecting on two penalty kicks. Leo Rossi scored

CHCA has some tremendous players. I was so impressed with their play. And Nadia and Nefeli had to play CJ’s normal first and second singles players. They were just physically stronger than we were and forced us to make errors. Still, they played a lot of great tennis to be here. “This has been a fun season, and all of the girls’ attitudes have been great.

■ Troy Notebook

Troy has recent history of big upsets BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor fong@tdnpublishing.com Where others may see a great challenge, Troy football coach Scot Brewer sees a great opportunity. Sure, Trotwood-Madison comes to town tonight to take on the Trojans with a roster filled with Division I college prospects and a 2011 Division II state championship trophy that hasn’t lost any of its shine. It likely will be the most monumental task the Trojans face this season. And Brewer wouldn’t have it any other way. “I hope our kids are coming in with an attitude that we’ve got a chance to beat the heck out of this team,” Brewer said. “Sure, they’ve got guys who may here and guys who may be going there — but it’s not about that. It’s about how you play collectively as a team. Everyone has to go out and do their job and let the chips fall where they may. They are still high school kids who put their pants on one leg at a time.”

Brewer admits that his team — given its record (3-4), Trotwood’s record (5-2) and the Rams recent history of success (Troy hasn’t defeated Trotwood since 2005) — is a prohibitive underdog going into tonight’s game. Still, though, he’s not counting his team out. “We can’t be intimidated by these guys,” Brewer said. “We’ve got to come in here with the right attitude that we can pull this off and we can shock the world.” There is some precedent for Troy pulling off upsets against seemingly impossible odds. It seems as though at least once a year for the past decade, Troy has managed to win games it shouldn’t have, based on player personnel, records and rankings. Since 2002, here are the top five upsets in Troy football history. • 2002 (Troy 28, Trotwood 14): On a rainy homecoming night, a 2-6 Troy team shocked a 7-1 Trotwood team that was just beginning its rise to power under new head coach Maurice Douglass. With fullback Adam Bornhorst leading the way on

TROY offense and defensive tackle Ivan Graves leading the way on defense, the Trojans stepped up and shocked a Trotwood team that would make a playoff appearance. • 2003 (Troy 21, Centerville 17): In 2003, an overmatched Troy team took on a powerful Centerville squad that was led by bullish fullback Tommy Tamaska. The Trojans would score on a long touchdown pass to Eric Huelskamp and a long interception return for a touchdown by Huelskamp at the end of the first half. Still, though, Centerville was driving for the go-ahead score late in the game when the Trojans forced Tamaska to fumble the ball and Trojans linebacker Derek Mallery fell on it to preserve the victory. Troy would finish the season 3-7, while Centerville would finish 7-3. That loss to Troy ultimately cost the Elks a spot in the postseason. • 2006 (Troy 16, Dublin Coffman 13): In 2006, Troy

faced a Dublin Coffman team loaded with future college players — including tackle Mike Adams, who would go on to play for Ohio State and now plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Jake Stoneburner, a wide receiver who currently plays for Ohio State. Corey Brown would score both of Troy’s touchdowns — one on a 19-yard run, the other on a 95yard kickoff return — while Troy’s defense shut down Coffman’s high-powered offense. Troy would finish the season 5-5, while Coffman would go 9-4 and play in the Division I regional championship game. • 2007 (Troy 36, Piqua 35): Not only one of the greatest upsetes in recent Troy football history, but one of the greatest games in all of Troy football history. Against rival Piqua — which had just won the Division II state championship the year before — the Trojans entered the game with a 3-5 record, while the Indians came in with a 7-1 record. Behind the efforts of Brown — who had more than 40 carries and 300 rushing yards —

Troy came from behind to pull within one point, 35-34, with less than a minute to play. Rather than kick the extra point and play for overtime, the Trojans elected to go for the two-point conversion. Quarterback Tyler Wright completed a pass to Benson McGillvary, giving the Trojans the winning margin of victory. • 2009 (Troy 14, Wayne 12): Yes, current Ohio State and former Wayne quarterback Braxton Miller sat out this game with an injury. Still, though, the Warriors featured a roster loaded with future college football players at defensive end, linebacker and defensive back. Troy entered the game at 1-3, having just been drubbed 40-7 by Centerville the week before. Wayne, meanwhile, entered the game with a 3-1 record. Troy scored its touchdowns on a 30-yard pass from Greg Yahle to Ian Dunaway and a 2-yard run by Chris Basil. Late in the game, Wayne scored to cut Troy’s lead to 14-12, but Troy stuffed the two-point conversion attempt to preserve the victory.

Unsung heroes

Trojans face their biggest challenge

O-line a major key to Bulldogs’ success BY COLIN FOSTER Associate Sports Editor cfoster@tdnpublishing.com Jason Siler, Corey Layman, Alex King, Wesley Martin, Josh Simpson and Andrew Lynn. Though you may not read about those guys in the paper every Saturday or hear their names called over the loudspeakers when a touchdown is scored on Friday, they are the group that does the dirty work in the trenches for a MiltonUnion offense that has scored at will this season. The Bulldogs have averaged 41.2 points per game this season on their way to a 6-1 start. Although Milton-Union has dealt with its share of injuries at the running back position, the offense hasn’t missed a beat — and that can be credited to the offensive line. “The offensive line has probably been the No. 1 reason we are having success right now,” MiltonUnion coach Bret Pearce said. “We have had a lot of injuries to running backs. It’s just one of those freak things this year. “However, whoever we plug in has been able to churn out yards and get us points and get us wins. The reason for that is the six guys up front blocking. They are giving holes that you and I could run through.” Having experience coming back has certainly benefited the MiltonUnion line this year. Siler, a senior captain, is a two-year starter at left guard, while Wes Martin — who has sparked interest from Big Ten schools Indiana and Illinois as a junior — has started at right guard for the last two seasons. King, a senior, is another two-year starter at tight end. This season, King is the second-leading receiver on the team with four catches for 115 yards and three touchdowns. Those three played key roles on the 2011 team, which had their season ended by Waynesville in the first round of the Division IV, Region 16 playoffs. “I think we play closer together,” Layman, a senior who is starting for his first time at left tackle, said. “We play more for each other than we do for ourselves this year, more so than last year’s seniors did.” “My first time out on the field was overwhelm-

Milton-Union’s skill players on offense have piled up an impressive statistical spreadsheet — all behind the blocking of a talented offensive line. ing,” Siler said. “To finally reach my dream that I had been waiting for since I was a little kid in peewee, it was just a great experience.” Milton-Union also has a few young, talented players on the line in Lynn and Simpson. Lynn is a sophomore first-year starter at right guard. Simpson, a junior, anchors the center position. That front six has paved the way for four different Milton-Union running backs to eclipse the 300-yard mark through the first seven weeks of the season. “The experience they have, and the way they work together, they communicate on Friday nights very well,” Pearce said. “That’s very reassuring to a coach. I know what I can call, and I know they are going to get the job done no matter what the defense throws at us.” “They are pretty fast for their size, which is unusual,” Milton-Union offensive line coach Dana Dickison said. “It helps

when you have kids that are pretty strong and can run at the same time. They all have a great work ethic, they bond together real well and they all communicate, which, as an offensive line coach, is exactly what you want.” To this point, MiltonUnion has scored 30 touchdowns and amassed 2,264 yards on the ground alone. Quarterback London Cowan has passed for 540 yards and seven scores. “Our O-line plays together, but we can trust our backs in the backfield,” Layman said. “I think that’s a big thing, being able to trust in your quarterback and running backs.” After all that production in the backfield, one would think that line unit, which has opened lanes and kept defenders at bay all season, deserves a free meal from one of their teammates. But that hasn’t been the case thus far. “No, they haven’t (taken us out for dinner). We’re going to have to get

on them about that,” Martin said jokingly. The Bulldogs have a chance to clinch the Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Division title by winning their next two games. MiltonUnion faces a tough test in Week 8 at home against Dixie (5-2), before hosting big-time rival Waynesville (5-2) the following week. A playoff spot will likely be secured with wins in the next two games, as well. Currently, Milton-Union ranks sixth in Region 16, with the top eight advancing to postseason. “We’ve got our two biggest games of the season coming up in these two weeks,” Pearce said. “The whole team is going to have to play well, but we kind of feed off of our offensive line and our offense moving the ball. We’re going to need them to come out and play hard, play physical and play together in the next two weeks.” And playing hard, physical football up front has been their secret to success all season.

BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor fong@tdnpublishing.com If you want to see future college football stars today, show up tonight at Troy Memorial Stadium to watch the Troy football team play host to Trotwood-Madison. The Rams’ roster is loaded with players who either have been offered scholarships by major Division I college football programs or already have committed to play major colleges or universities. A total of 13 players — seven seniors, four juniors and two sophomores — have received college scholarship offers, with more likely to come in the future. On the defense alone, the Rams’ starting cornerback Cameron Burrows is listed as one of the top 100 players in the nation by Rivals.com, a recruiting service. He’ll attend The Ohio State University next fall. At linebacker is senior Mike McCray, also a top 100 prospect, who will attend the University of Michigan. Joining Burrows in the defensive backfield is Reon Dawson, who has committed to the University of Illinois. At one defensive end spot is Jerrod Clements, who also has committed to the University of Illinois. At the other defensive end spot is Trey WilliamsBrown, who is considering scholarship offers from Arizona and Toledo. And that’s just on defense. Offensively, lineman Cody Collins has committed to Marshall. Running back Israel Green is considering a number of offers after rushing for more than 300 yards and six touchdowns in last year’s Division II state championship game, which the Rams won. Junior running back Ashton Jackson already has scholarship offers from the University of Cincinnati, Illinois, Purdue and Toledo. Even sophomore running back Harrison Johnson has an offer from Illinois. Needless to say, all of that talent poses quite a challenge for the 3-4 (1-1 in the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division) Trojans. “They’re good,” Troy coach Scot Brewer said of the Rams. “They’ve got skill, they’ve got size and they’ve got speed. I don’t keep track of how many scholarship offers they have — all I know is they’ve got good high school football players.” Offensively, Troy will have to find a way to slow down the 5-foot-9, 189pound Green, who leads the GWOC North with 101

TROY carries for 736 yards and 10 touchdowns. Ashton Jackson has carried the ball 36 times for 358 yards — nearly 10 yards per carry — and eight touchdowns. They run behind an offensive line that averages more than 300 pounds per man. “He’s good,” Brewer said of Green. “The Jackson kid is good. Their other running back is good. They all break tackles and they all have the ability to break the big one. Their offense hasn’t changed. They line up in the I-formation and run iso at you. They spread you out and try to take advantage of their athetes. They try to remain as balanced as possible while keeping all their athletes happy, because there’s only one ball.” Even the one question mark the Rams had at the beginning of the season — who would replace Associated Press Division II Offensive Player of the Year Michael Simpson at quarterback — appears to have been answered. After shuffling several players in at the position, Trotwood seems to have settled on junior Kendric Mallory — a converted wide receiver — who has completed 33 of 68 passes for 578 yards, with seven touchdowns and three interceptions, despite not taking a snap in Trotwood’s first two games of the season. “Their quarterback just keeps getting better and better,” Brewer said. “I guess at the beginning of the season that was their Achilles’ Heel — now it’s more like an Achilles’ Toe.” And it’s not as though Mallory has a lack of options to throw to. Demarcus Wilson — a junior speedster — has 20 catches for 370 yards and four touchdowns. McCray also jumps in on offense and has six catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, the Rams take full advantage of all their college recruits. After giving up 33 points in the season opener to Florida powerhouse University School, the Rams have given up just 39 over the past six games, including just 18 in the past four games. The Rams lead the GWOC North in defense, giving up just 10.3 points and 130.3 yards per game. “They run to the ball,” Brewer said. “They mix up a lot of different fronts. They mix guys in and out a lot. Number 9 (McCray) is the real deal. Their two corners are the real deal. They are all being recruited for a reason.”

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer says it is, but he is has caught a pass for Ohio State in the last two games. in a dwindling minority after a spectacular first half of the Tight ends Jeff Heuerman and Nick Vannett each had season by the Buckeyes’ sophomore quarterback. After a catches of more than 30 yards against Nebraska. slow start last week, it was Braxton time when he rushed for For Indiana, Shayne Wynn (28 catches, 213 yards, 4 186 yards and a touchdown and threw for another in a 63-38 win over Nebraska. TDs) and Cody Latimer (20 catches, 363 yards) are the main threats, though Indiana’s Cameron Coffman (86 of 128 for 801 yards, 6 TDs, 1 five other Hoosiers have caught at least 12 passes. Twelve of Wynn’s catches interception) became the Hoosiers’ quarterback when starter Tre Roberson came last week in a 31-27 loss to Michigan State. suffered a broken leg in the second game of the season. Freshman Nate Sudfeld Advantage: Ohio State also could play. Advantage: Ohio State OFFENSIVE LINE Ohio State’s offensive line is on a roll after a strong effort late in the Michigan State game and in the final three quarters of the win over Nebraska. While coach Urban Meyer is happy with his five starters, he says the backups on the line need to improve in a hurry. Indiana center Will Matte has 38 career starts but he is surrounded by inexperience. IU starts true freshmen Jason Spriggs at left tackle and Dan Feeney at right guard and also has two sophomores starting on its offensive front line. Advantage: Ohio State

DEFENSIVE LINE John Simon is healthier than he has been all season and that is not good news for the rest of the Big Ten. He had two sacks and five tackles for losses against Nebraska and earned the designation of “our leader, our soul,” from Meyer. Garrett Goebel (8 tackles against Nebraska) has had a solid season that has gone mostly unnoticed. For Indiana, tackle Adam Replogle has 40 career starts and 12.5 career sacks. The other tackle, Larry Black, has 33 starts and 6 career sacks. The Hoosiers rank last in the Big Ten in total defense and rushing defense. Advantage: Ohio State

LINEBACKERS Losing starter Etienne Sabino for a minimum of three weeks with a broken leg depletes an already thin linebacker group for Ohio State. Ryan Shazier and Storm Klein will play all the time and freshman Joshua Perry will probably fill the third slot in running situations. His play last week drew a rating of only “OK” from Meyer. The disappearing act by once highly touted sophomore Curtis Grant continues. Junior college transfer David Cooper shares the team lead with 36 tackles and has four tackles for losses for Indiana. Jacarri Anderson is also a junior college transfer. Advantage: Ohio State

CARLOS HYDE The 6-foot, 232-pound junior running back from Naples, Fla. has emerged as a punishing option to Braxton Miller. In four games, he’s carried the ball 63 times for 298 yards and has scored six touchdowns.

DEFENSIVE BACKS

Bradley Roby has the talent and the confident attitude to play cornerback. And after getting his first two interceptions of the season against Nebraska, he has the numbers to validate his reputation. Safety C.J. Barnett could return after missing the last three games with a high ankle sprain. Indiana is tied for 10th in the Big Ten with three interceptions and OSU leads RUNNING BACKS the conference with 10. Advantage: Ohio State Probably no one is sadder to see Nebraska go off OSU’s schedule next season than running back Carlos Hyde (298 SPECIAL TEAMS yards rushing). He ran for a career-best 140 yards against Ohio State tightened up its kick coverage and got a the Cornhuskers last week and had 104 yards against them 76-yard punt return for a touchdown from Corey Brown last year. Jordan Hall is out for a second week in a row with last week. Kicker Drew Basil has made both of his a knee injury, so Hyde will get almost all the running back attempts this season. Ben Buchanan averages 42.0 carries again for OSU. yards per punt. Junior college transfer Stephen Houston (281 yards) leads Indiana in rushing but Indiana’s Mitch Ewald is 5 of 8 on field goals but only has started only one game.

Bowl ban could work for Buckeyes COLUMBUS – Ohio State’s administration has taken a lot of heat for not self-imposing a bowl ban last season instead of going to the Gator Bowl. This discussion has grown even more heated since this year’s team has started the season with six straight victories, making a trip to a bowl higher up the food chain than the Gator Bowl look like a very real possibility. Why did OSU athletic director Gene Smith take a trip to a meaningless bowl by a 6-6 team, which became a 6-7 team with a loss to Florida in Jacksonville? Why did he let the NCAA ban Ohio State from a bowl this year instead of beating the NCAA to the punch? Smith said he did it because last year’s seniors deserved a bowl trip. What he left unsaid was that through overconfidence or wishful thinking Ohio State thought it was going to escape from the mess it was in without a bowl ban. OSU gambled and lost. I’m not here to suggest Smith made the wrong call. I don’t necessarily think he made the right one, either. It was a gamble no matter what he did. He apparently misread his opponent or doesn’t count cards very well. That’s one way to look at it. But there is also another way. It might sound crazy, but Ohio State could run the table, finish 12-0 and possibly have not going to a bowl game work to its advantage. OSU has generated a tremendous amount of enthusiasm in the 11 months since Urban Meyer was hired as its football coach. The team has embraced the changes that come with a new start. Bigtime recruits want hear what Ohio State has to say. Fans are more excited than they’ve been in a long time. Finishing 12-0 or even 11-1 and looking forward to a future as bright as chrome in sunlight keeps all that going. But if this year’s Buckeyes — a team that is still very much a work in progress — finished 12-0, then went to a big bowl and took another fearsome punch to the gut from an SEC team, like in the BCS title games against Florida and LSU, a little of the air might come out of the balloon.
