IU upsets No. 11 Ohio State, page 7

Break from rain coming By Ty Vinson | @ty_vinson_

After a couple days of rainy weather, Bloomington is expected to have a break from the showers and dreary weather for a few days, according to the National Weather Service out of Indianapolis. Most days this upcoming week will begin with haze in the morning, but meteorologist Aaron Updike said the chance of rain is low. The average high temperature this week will be in the high 40s, which is above average for this time of year, Updike said. The tentative highest temperature Bloomington may see is 57 degrees Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. The lowest is 30 degrees Wednesday night. The chance for rain showers will rise Wednesday, according to Updike and the National Weather Service. There is a slight chance for snow Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Updike said a large weather system will move through this weekend, bringing back the rain and cold temperatures. Updike said it’s difficult to predict how long the cold front moving in this weekend will last.


IU starts season with sweep By Joshua Manes | @TheManesEvent

IU men’s tennis started the season strong with a dominant 7-0 victory over Ball State University, dropping only one set to the Cardinals in Sunday's season opener. For a sport that is typically seen as an individual game, IU head coach Jeremy Wurtzman said the team building from the Hoosiers was the highlight of the match. “We stayed together and connected throughout the match, which is something that we really worked on, making this a real team

‘It’s unbelievable’ At 76, Fred Farris never believed he'd get to watch his favorite team in person. That is, until a Christmas gift brought him from Florida to Bloomington. By Phillip Steinmetz | @PhillipHoosier

Fred Farris woke up at 4 a.m. Saturday morning. His excitement got the best of him. The 76-year-old wanted to wake up at 3 a.m., but he knew he needed some extra sleep for the day ahead. Eight hours still remained before IU men’s basketball took on No. 11 Ohio State. Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall was only a mile drive from his room at the Biddle Hotel, and he already visited the day prior, but this time was going to be different. He’s watched countless games from his home in Leesburg, Florida, and always dreamed of making his way to Assembly Hall. Fred lived in Fort Wayne, Indiana, until he was 17 and has been an IU fan for 65 years. But he never thought it was possible to visit Assembly Hall. He lived over 900 miles away and was only getting older. That was until his daughter, Michele Reed, and her husband Robert, decided to get him a special Christmas gift this year. Robert came home after playing golf with Fred one day and told Michele they needed to purchase him tickets to an IU game. Fred had never attended a col-

IU Auditorium to premiere Steinway D Concert Grand Piano By Kevin Chrisco | @beatsbykevv

The IU Auditorium purchased a Steinway Model D concert grand piano to help continue attracting top musicians to perform in Bloomington, according to a Jan. 8 press release. "This majestic musical instrument — the pinnacle of concert grands — is the overwhelming choice of the world's greatest pianists and for anyone who demands the highest level of musical expression," according to the Steinway website. Money to purchase the instrument came from Auditorium Board of Advisors members Linda Hunt and Tim Morrison, as well as donations from other members of the board and Circle of Friends members, according to the press release.

The installation of the piano is a big part of the university's commitment to the arts, Hunt said in the release. "The quality of the instrument will attract world-renowned musicians to perform here and will, no doubt, inspire young musicians to pursue their dreams to someday play on the auditorium stage," Hunt said in the release. The piano can be heard for the first time Jan. 22 when Finnish pianist Juho Pohjonen performs Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A Minor alongside the Grammy-Award winning Minnesota Orchestra on the auditorium stage.  Tickets for the Minnesota Orchestra at the IU Auditorium are available online with general public tickets starting from $30 and student tickets from $15.


The outside of the IU Auditorium is seen Jan. 9 in the Fine Arts Plaza. The Steinway D Concert Grand Piano will premiere Jan. 22 at IU Auditorium.

IU students continue sorority recruitment By Joey Bowling | @jwbowling08

About 1,600 IU students trekked this past week to meet with 22 sororities, braving flooding streets and sporadic downpours in the hope of landing a coveted spot during spring recruitment. This weekend concluded the first two segments of recruitment: Open Invite, when women visit all 22 chapters, and the Philanthropy and Service rounds. The entire recruitment process spans twoand-a-half weeks and ends Jan. 21. On a campus bus labeled PHA-A, groups of women were packed into the bus like sardines. Some touched up others’ makeup. Others glanced at their phones, looking at maps of the sorority houses on the bus route. Between touch-ups and planning, they checked in with each other. “How are you feeling?” “Are you stressed?” Freshman Megan Laune boarded the bus on her way to the next set of chapter interviews. Laune, a potential new member, said she rushed because her best friend is rushing and felt she would regret it if she didn’t try it. One of the reasons she rushed was to find a community. Laune said she didn’t like the rainy weather and would have much preferred the bitter cold more commonly associated with January and previous years’ recruitments. “Rain makes you feel gross,” she said. She looked for “vibes” and humor that match her own as she went to different sororities, Laune said. She was considering the chapters as much as they were considering her. At the end of each round, PNMs rank their favorite chapters, and sorority members rank them, too. PNMs are encouraged to keep an open mind during recruitment. Laune said she feels neutral about the chapters so far. “I haven’t had the moment of ‘I don’t want any other house,’” Laune said.

Laune said originally she was nervous because she doesn’t think she’s the type of person who would rush, but she enjoyed the small talk and getting to meet new people. She even added some other women rushing on Snapchat. Back on the bus, senior Rho Gamma Ciara Lynch shouted out the names of chapters before the bus passed the sororities’ houses on the North Jordan Avenue extension to signal when PNMs should get off the bus. Rho Gammas are sorority members who disaffiliate and are not active members during rush. They are selected to help people with recruitment. Lynch said some students prefer to know everything about the sororities they visit. She suggested looking at official chapter websites or talking to people in the sorority. Each round has specific dress codes, so many women

make a shopping trip to prepare for recruitment, Lynch said. There are no recruitment events during the first four days of school because sororities want to give the students an opportunity to focus on academics, Lynch said. Friday and Saturday mark the beginning of the Sisterhood Round, and Preference Round is Sunday. Lynch said the conversations become more serious each round. The third round is marked by chapters showing PNMs a

video showing off their sisterhood. Lynch said this is when women really begin to consider the sororities they want to be part of. During the Preference Round, women visit up to two

chapters they visited during Sisterhood Round. Sorority members will read letters about their experiences, Lynch said. This round typically involves lots of crying. The final event is bid night

on Jan. 21, when women learn if a sorority wants them as a member. Laune said if she doesn’t get a bid, she won’t take it to heart. “I don’t want to be in a place that’s not me,” she said.

Residents react to Middle East tensions IU senior pleads By Kyra Miller | @kyra_ky94

In the aftermath of the U.S. killing of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, Bloomington residents have publicly voiced their concerns. A small group of residents held signs Thursday evening outside the Monroe County Courthouse to protest the conflict. “No war, try wisdom,” one sign read. The protest was part of the local arm of a large movement sponsored by public policy advocacy group MoveOn. MoveOn called for anti-war protests on Jan. 9 against the recent escalations in Iraq against Iranian militants. Across the nation, there were over 370 cities participating, according to their website. “If we have any chance of living in peace, diplomacy is the answer, not escalation,” said Lynne Shifress, who or-

ganized the Bloomington protests with MoveOn. Another resident spoke out at Wednesday’s Bloomington City Council meeting. During the public comment period, David Keppel, a representative of the Bloomington Peace Action Coalition, called upon the council to pass a new resolution, one that would support the prohibition of nuclear weapons. The resolution would show a stance against war with Iran, Keppel said. The reactions come after President Donald Trump ordered an airstrike which killed Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi alMuhandis on Jan. 3 outside a Baghdad airport. Soleimani, 62, was the leader of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Force. Al-Muhandis, 65, was the deputy head of the Popular Mobilization Force, an Iraqi government-sanctioned

paramilitary group. IU Professor of Practice Feisal Amin Rasoul al-Istrabadi, founding director of the Center for the Study of the Middle East, was recently interviewed by CNN. He told the outlet the killing could destabilize Iran. “This is a huge deal throughout the Middle East,” al-Istrabadi told CNN. “The fact that it was done over the territory of Iraq means that Iraq will become what I feared it would become from the beginning: the battleground between Iran and the United States.” The airstrike on Soleimani was not approved by Congress before it launched, according to CNN. In an interview with the Indiana Daily Student, alIstrabadi said Trump should have consulted with Congress beforehand if he had knowledge of an upcoming attack. “He is stronger when he

makes decisions with the support of Congress and weaker without their support,” al-Istrabadi said. The House of Representatives introduced a new motion on Thursday that would require President Trump consult with Congress before any future strike or military action, the motion passed in a majority 224-194, according to a World & U.S. News report. Trump’s airstrike against Soleimani occurred on Iraqi soil and killed and wounded Iraqi citizens, and because of this, it is possible that Trump violated international law, al-Istrabadi said. “We have an election coming up this year,” said alIstrabadi. “Who knows if the Iranian government will use their international supporters and allies to take indirect action against the U.S. in the days, weeks or months leading up to it.”

not guilty to 10 counts of arson By Ty Vinson | @ty_vinson_

A 21-year-old woman pleaded not guilty Dec. 27 to 10 felony counts of arson that occurred on campus. Then-senior Alekhya Koppineni was arrested by IU Police Department Dec. 17 after allegedly setting fire to eight trash cans and two classroom doors on campus within a month. As of Sunday evening, IU spokesperson Chuck Carney could not confirm whether or not Koppineni is still an IU student. The first fire took place Dec. 3 in Hodge Hall. The

second fire reported was Dec. 5 in the Psychological and Brain Sciences Building. Several more fires were reported throughout the day Koppineni was arrested, including one in Rawles Hall and two in Jordan Hall. Classroom doors were set on fire in the Chemistry Building. Koppineni matched a person of interest photo from the Hodge Hall fire, according to IUPD Deputy Chief Shannon Bunger. A pretrial conference is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Feb. 6, and the jury trial is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. May 18.

Police investigating house fire as arson By Peter Talbot and Ty Vinson

The Bloomington Police Department is investigating a Friday house fire on North College Avenue as a possible arson. The house was empty and there were no injuries from the fire. BPD Sgt. Ben Burns said security guards who patrol the house told police transient people frequently come to the house and cook on a charcoal grill in the basement. The guards said they saw transient people at the house as recently as Wednesday. The Bloomington Fire Department, BPD and ambulances were dispatched at 12:05 p.m. to the 1200 block of North College Avenue. Fire Prevention Officer Tom Figolah said a passerby called 911 after seeing flames and smoke coming out of the basement

Pelosi says McConnell looks for ‘cover-up’ of impeachment


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi waves goodbye towards the end of her speech July 19 at the Crowne Plaza in Indianapolis. Pelosi has been holding onto the impeachment articles.

WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said it was “unusual” for her counterpart in the Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, to back a resolution aimed at dismissing the impeachment case against President Donald Trump. “Dismissing is a coverup,” Pelosi said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” McConnell on Friday was the 13th co-sponsor of a resolution by Republican Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri to alter Senate rules and dismiss Trump’s impeachment if Pelosi didn’t send over the impeachment articles within a specified time. The California Democrat on Friday told House Democrats to prepare for sending

the articles of impeachment against Trump to the Senate next week, ending a threeweek standoff with McConnell over the terms of the trial. She told ABC she would be “consulting” with her members on Tuesday morning. Pelosi won no concessions from McConnell, who said he was prepared to set out Senate rules for the trial using only Republican votes. He’s insisted that the Senate would follow the template for President Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial in 1999. That would defer a vote on calling witnesses — one of the main demands of Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer — until after the House managers and Trump’s lawyers

make their cases. Asked if said she had second thoughts about holding onto the articles for three weeks, Pelosi on Sunday said, “No, no, no,” adding that the delay “produced a positive result.” While some Democrats have expressed frustration over Pelosi delaying the trial by withholding the articles of impeachment, the speaker and her closest allies said the emergence of emails among administration officials they consider crucial to the case and former Trump National Security Adviser John Bolton’s offer to testify justified the strategy. The looming prospect of the start of the Senate trial is triggering a new, more

serious phase of the battle over witnesses. Shortly after Pelosi’s announcement on Friday, Republican Senator Susan Collins said she’s talking with her GOP colleagues about agreeing to hear testimony, and Trump vowed to invoke executive privilege to limit Bolton if he appears as a witness. Democrats also want to hear from other administration officials, including acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney. Democrats would need only four GOP senators to side with them to call witnesses or present evidence. They’ve been focusing efforts on several GOP senators who are either facing tough re-election fights this year

Trump aide ‘concerned’ Russia may be trying to undermine Biden WASHINGTON - The U.S. government is “concerned” about a report that Russia may be attempting to undermine Democrat Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, President Donald Trump’s top national security official said Sunday. Trump has warned his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, not to conduct any such election tampering, National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said on ABC’s “This Week.” “He’s absolutely told Putin to make sure that that doesn’t happen,” he said. O’Brien was asked about a Bloomberg News report on Friday that U.S. intelligence and law enforcement officials are assessing whether Russia is trying to undermine Biden’s 2020 campaign with an ongoing disinformation operation. “Look, I don’t want Russians, or Chinese, or Iranians or any others interfering with the Trump campaign, with the Biden campaign, with any campaign,” O’Brien said. “And I think the president feels absolutely the same way.” The former vice president remains the front-runner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, according to an average of opinion polls from RealClearPolitics.


unfair & biased in history?” “I don’t like to spend a lot of time on him,” Pelosi said when asked about the tweet and Trump’s regular characterization of her as “crazy.” “Everything he says about someone else is a projection.” Pelosi said Trump continues to violate the Constitution. Asked if it was possible the House might file additional articles of impeachment, she said, “Well, let’s just see what the Senate does. | @catecharron


Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President, Joe Biden speaks Jan. 7 in New York. President Donald Trump’s top national security official stated they wereconcerned that Russia may be trying to undermine Biden’s campaign.

O’Brien said the idea Trump would collude with Russia was “a partisan fantasy.” Various countries, including China, Iran and Russia would prefer “a more malleable leader” than Trump, he added. Trump has bridled at findings that Russia mounted a

massive effort to attack his 2016 Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, and by doing so boost his candidacy. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, speaking on the same show, said the administration isn’t doing enough to prevent meddling in this year’s cam-

paign. “The president of the United States is in complete denial about Russia’s role. As I have said in terms of this president, all roads lead to Putin,” Pelosi said. By Alan Levin Bloomberg News

Campus crime falls as students leave for break By Cate Charron

Police cars race down Jordan Avenue while students walk to class. After finals, the campus falls quiet. IU Pol ice Department saw crime dip in certain categories with students away from campus for winter break. According to IUPD Deputy Chief Shannon Bunger, the police department had 55 calls related to marijuana use in October, which had a single day of break. This dropped to 22 in December, which had 12 days of break. “Most runs are to dorms,” Bunger said. “If we don’t have anyone in McNutt quad, it is less likely we will receive a call from there.” There were 15 calls for disturbances, such as noise complaints and fights in October and only 9 in December. October had 15 alcoholrelated calls which dropped to 5 in December. IUPD has jurisdiction over any university-owned

property, including fraternities and sororities, and surrounding streets, according to the department’s website. Anthony McGruder, the assistant manager of the Village Pantry on Third St. and Jordan Avenue said he hasn’t witnessed any crimes within the store except for underage people attempting to buy alcohol with false identification. McGruder said that he noticed a big decrease in the number of customers coming in over break. Freshman Evan Meinerding is a part of the IU Marching 100 and had to stay on campus for part of his Thanksgiving and winter break because of the band practices. He said that even though students had left for winter break and the campus felt empty, he still noticed the police presence in Bloomington. “I was woken up by sirens the nights that I was staying,” Meinerding said. He said that the sirens felt normal and made Bloomington feel like home.

California sends specialists to Puerto Rico after earthquakes


Parroquia Inmaculada Concepción church is seen after being by struck by an earthquake in Guayanilla, Puerto Rico. The earthquake had a magnitude of 6.4.

LOS ANGELES — California was sending a team of disaster specialists on Sunday to help Puerto Rico recover from a series of earthquakes that caused more than $100 million in damage along the island’s southern coast, the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services announced. The deployment of 35 specialists came in response

to a request for assistance from the Puerto Rican government to the California Governor’s Office, Cal OES said in a news release. “California stands with the people of Puerto Rico,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said in the statement. “Our nationsized state knows first-hand the devastating toll of natural disasters and we will provide aid and support as

our brothers and sisters rebuild and recover.” The personnel include experts in incident and emergency management, engineering and safety assessment, planning, public information, debris management and crisis counseling, Cal OES said. Most of them were scheduled to depart from Sacramento on Sunday morning and

were headed to San Juan. They are expected to deploy for 16 days. “Here in California, we have some of the most talented and experienced emergency management staff in the world,” Cal OES Director Mark Ghilarducci said in a statement. “We are ready to provide their valuable skill sets to our partners in Puerto Rico.”

A magnitude 5.9 quake struck Puerto Rico on Saturday morning, four days after a 6.4 magnitude quake in the same area and amid a swarm of more than 1,200 mostly small quakes over the last 15 days. The earthquakes have severely damaged infrastructure and left more than 2,000 people in shelters, while nearly 1 million

remain without power and hundreds of thousands are without water, Cal OES said in a statement. Earlier in the week, the state sent four California Urban Search and Rescue firefighters from Sacramento and Orange County to assist with search and rescue operations in Puerto Rico.

Iran faces second day of protests after Ukrainian plane crash Anti-government protests continued for a second day across Iran amid fury over the military’s admission it had downed a Ukrainian International Airlines jetliner near Tehran last week, killing all 176 of its passengers. The demonstrations mark yet another crisis for Iran’s leaders, who have been blamed for a weakening economy even as they cope with the Trump administration’s targeted killing of a top general, Qasem Soleimani, in Iraq. The downing of the commercial aircraft, which military leaders acknowledged Saturday they had done by mistake, came after their firing missiles at military bases in Iraq as a response to the White House. Hundreds of protesters gathered in Azadi Square in downtown Tehran on Sunday, blocking roads around the square even as authorities dispatched riot police to force them open. There were also reports of demonstrations spreading to other cities, including Shiraz, Ahwaz and Babol. The protesters excoriated the country’s top officials, including Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei for what many saw as incompetence of the military establishment as well as the delayed acknowledgment of error after three

days of denials. “Our shame, our same, our stupid supreme leader,” shouted a group of demonstrators in Azadi Square in a video posted to social media on Sunday. “Death to the dictator!” and “We don’t want an Islamic Republic!” other videos showed. Anger has continued — and even grown — despite expressions of contrition from Iranian officials, including Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, head of the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ airspace unit that was responsible for downing the plane. “I wish I were dead and such an accident hadn’t happened,” said Hajizadeh at a press conference Saturday. He did not offer his resignation. The protests come after a moment of unity in Iran over the U.S.’s slaying of Soleimani, head of the Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Force and an important leader seen as a bulwark against Islamic State. His killing brought tensions to a fever pitch between Washington and Tehran, leading to jittery Iranian military personnel firing surface-to-air missiles at what they thought, officials said, was a U.S. cruise missile attack but which actually was Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752. Among the victims were

dozens of Iranians, many of them students. Their alma maters were the site of protests Saturday evening. Video posted Sunday showed students at Tehran’s Shahid Behesthti University walking around an American and an Israeli flag that had been painted on the floor suggesting that their beef was not with those nations but with Iranian leadership. As a Basij officer walked over

the painted area, the crowd began to shout and called him “dishonorable” — an affront in Iranian culture. The protests have garnered international scrutiny amid fears of a crackdown by security forces. “To the leaders of Iran - DO NOT KILL YOUR PROTESTERS. Thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you, and the World is watching,” tweeted Trump.

“More importantly, the USA is watching.” Britain too issued a complaint over the detention of its ambassador to Iran, Rob Macaire, which it said was “a flagrant violation of international law.” Macaire, later released, said he had come to pay respects at what was said to be a vigil for the victims of the doomed Ukrainian flight. He added in a tweet that he had


left after five minutes when chanting broke out. Iran summoned Macaire for his attending “an illegal rally,” according to a statement from Iran’s foreign ministry. Later that day, progovernment demonstrators burned U.K. and U.S. flags. Despite the discontent, it remains unclear whether the protests represent a strong threat to the country’s rulers. “We are seeing Iran’s population of over 80 million growing increasingly polarized and frustrated based on various issues. Some over the economy, others over corruption, lack of political freedoms, Soleimani’s assassination, and mismanagement across most branches of government and military,” said Ellie Geranmayeh, an Iran expert at the European Council on Foreign Relations. “The support base for the Islamic Republic is getting smaller and more segments of Iran’s population are questioning the legitimacy of its leaders — but nevertheless the support for the ruling elite remains powerful enough (no matter its shrinking size) to maintain its survival.” Staff writers Bulos reported from Baghdad and Parvini from Los Angeles.

Editors Kevin Chrisco and Madi Smalstig



A ranking of all 41 ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ songs Kevin Chrisco is a junior in journalism.

The “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” first season has come to a close, leaving a trail of emotional destruction and a sprawling soundtrack in its wake. The show was a massive surprise to me. I assumed it would suffer from its obvious nostalgia mining, but it ended up being a refreshing take on the teen drama. The show’s soundtrack is cheesy in the best way. It pays homage to the original film while introducing powerful new songs sung by exciting new voices. Here’s my “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series (Original Soundtrack)” power rankings: 41. Every instrumental track is tied for last place. Do I look like a theater kid? A little bit, yeah. Instrumentals are still last place though. 31. Every acoustic track is tied for 31st. Everyone can have a little acoustic track, as a treat. But they don’t add much. 27. ‘We’re All in This Together (Curtain Call)’ Too many ad-libs for a track not performed by Migos or Playboi Carti.  26. ‘Out of the Old’ I don’t remember this song being in the show.  25. ‘Bop to the Top (Nini and Kourtney Version)’ This song is 36 seconds long. I can hear Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel in the mix. I don’t think the girls that play Nini and Kourtney are even on this track.


Disney+ began airing the first season of “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” on Nov. 12, 2019. The series released a soundtrack of 41 songs Jan. 10.

24. ‘Start of Something New (Various Versions)’ The soundtrack does this cool thing where it has three or four versions of the same song. That’s why the rankings jump around so much. Plus, every version is like a minute long. It’s really great and totally useful and not pointless at all. 21. ‘I Think I Kinda, You Know (Various Versions)’ This song is really great. It’s an adorable little ballad, but there shouldn’t be three versions. 17. ‘When There Was Me and You (Ricky Version)’ This is the only version of “When There Was Me and You” on the soundtrack. It

doesn’t need the “(Ricky Version).” This error is too egregious to be ignored. The title is misleading, and that’s why the song is in 17th. 16. ‘Breaking Free (Nini, Ricky, & E.J. Version)’ E.J. ruins this song. I hate him.  15. ‘Stick to the Status Quo (Rehearsal)’ The harmonies in this bang.  14. ‘Get’cha Head in the Game’ I really like this version, but the Zac Efron bowl cut version still holds a special place in my heart.  13. ‘Just for a Moment’ A wonderful original duet

that gives off massive Troy and Gabriella vibes. 12. ‘What I’ve Been Looking For (Nini & E.J. Version)’ Nini really ate this. 11. ‘The Medley, The Mashup’ It’s all the best original High School Musical tracks in one song. Absolutely wonderful. 10. ‘We’re All in This Together (Wildcat Chant)’ This song makes the top 10 simply because of nostalgia.  9. ‘Born to Be Brave’ This song is very “Roar” by Katy Perry and “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” by Kelly Clarkson. It’s cheesy

and empowers the youths. 8. ‘All I Want’ The very best of Nini’s ballads.  7. ‘Wondering’ Such a good power ballad. One of the best original songs written for the show. 6. ‘Wondering (Ashlyn & Nini Piano Version)’ Wondering. But with a piano.  5. ‘A Billion Sorrys’ This may be the stupidest song ever written in the history of the world. It haunts me. Every time I think I’m safe, it appears at the corner of my consciousness, slowly creeping in and enveloping my soul. God, this song sucks,

definitely top five. A song so bad that it’s actually good. 4. ‘We’re All in This Together’ Classic. 3. ‘Stick the Status Quo (Performance)’ Banger.  2. ‘Role of a Lifetime’ Lucas Grabeel, or Ryan Evans from the original film, lets those vocals fly. It’s big, dumb and perfect in every way.  1. ‘Truth, Justice and Songs in Our Key’ I love this song. It’s funny, refreshing and massive. The ultimate show-stopper.


‘The Circle’ is a trashy, new kind of win for Netflix Annie Aguiar is a junior in journalism.

Do not attempt to contact me in any way, shape or form this Wednesday. I will be out of commission until I complete my mission: watching the final four episodes of the Netflix original reality competition show “The Circle.” The premise of “The Circle,” which is a little difficult to discern from promos, is that a group of people who are unable to actually interact in person communicate via a chat system called “The Circle.” Occasionally, the players will rank each other – the top-two ranked players become “influencers” and vote on who to eliminate

from the competition. There’s a twist to the show — some of the players are catfishes, playing with fake pictures and trying to fool the rest of the players into liking their fake identities. Part of the fun is watching players completely fall for these lies while the viewers see for themselves that the sweet, shy girl in the game is actually a 29-year-old dude. The winner, who will ultimately be decided via one final in-show ranking, will receive $100,000, so strategies range from just being yourself to mercilessly flirting with other players in an attempt to win loyalty. It kind of seems like a fake game show that would be

in the Netflix original show “Black Mirror,” but lacks the same self-righteousness that show has in its chiding audiences about the dangers of technology. Sure, social media can lead people to be fake, but “The Circle” shows it’s still fun and can lead to genuine relationships. These relationships are of course the bulk of the show, as alliances and rivalries are built based on group chats and mini-games. Also, whoever cast this show is a genius. The players, who live in specially-provided apartments with no outside interaction for the length of the game, manage to be likeable on their own as we watch them dictate messages to

send the other players. It’s a little awkward and telling as we watch the players dictate their messages. The shift between them debating what strategy works for the game and narrating their messages shows the disconnect between what we say and what we type — it’s also really funny to hear a grown man yell “CUPCAKE EMOJI, PIZZA EMOJI, THERE WE GO” at a screen, or see a horrified response to an attempted DM slide many can relate to. My personal favorite cast members include ridiculously Italian mama’s boy Joey and social media skeptic Shubham, who strike up a truly adorable friendship in

the game. Getting people to talk about a reality game show these days is really hard if you’re not working with emotional support cowcaliber content like “The Bachelor.” But somehow, “The Circle” has done it. Netflix doesn’t reliably release watch statistics, but social media has been kind to “The Circle.” Which is, of course, pretty ironic as the show can be seen as criticizing social media’s whole deal. The show’s model, where multiple episodes premiere on Netflix every Wednesday, is an interesting one for the age of streaming dominance. This mini-binge structure lets viewers dial in for lon-

ger viewing sessions and get more invested in the show, but the promise of new episodes keeps up the suspense. The final four are being dropped to Netflix this Wednesday, and I can’t wait. But a lot of the episodes do have what feels like filler content. Part of me wants to say I wouldn’t mind having fewer episodes if they were more purposefully edited, but I’m lying to myself. It’s dumb and fun, and I love every minute of it even as I’m feeling my time could be better spent. Alright, Netflix, you’ve won: I’m completely tuned in to “The Circle.”

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 week early. “It was exciting,” Michele said. “We had the tickets for a while. It was hard to keep a secret.” Everyone else had already opened their gifts, but Michele had one final present for her father. She handed him a white envelope with a red bow on top. He didn’t know what to expect. His best guess was that it would be a gift card to Bass Pro Shops. It took him a moment to understand what was in his hands. “I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” Fred said. “I saw IU and red, but I’m looking at this ticket, and it’s just not going in. I kept looking and looking, and I couldn’t figure it out. Then it dawned on me what it was.” It hit him all at once. Fred teared up as he read the words on the paper. He told his wife for years that he wanted to make it up to Bloomington someday. He now received that opportunity. “I never in my life would have dreamed of anything like

that,” Fred said. “It came so far out in left field that it just got me.” Michele took a video of her father opening up the tickets originally to share with just her family and close friends. After she posted it on Facebook, her children mentioned she should publish it on Twitter and tag IU affiliated accounts. Michele decided to post the video Jan. 8 on Twitter. IU Athletics saw the video and reached out to her. The men’s basketball account retweeted it and the primary IU Hoosiers account republished it. The original video and shared post have thousands of likes and hundreds of retweets. Michele didn’t share the news with Fred of him going viral until they got on the plane to Bloomington. “I didn’t want to tell him too early because I knew the excitement could’ve been too much,” Michele said. “I wanted to make sure he slept at night.” When Fred arrived at Assembly Hall on Saturday with Michele, he could barely believe what he was seeing. He wanted the team to win but he

more so wanted to see all the history within the walls. Fred didn't know where to go first, but it didn't take long for him to enter the door on the north entrance that led to the court. Fred made his way down alongside the wooden bleachers. He took his time and glanced at every small detail. It was a moment he didn’t

want to let go of. “It’s unbelievable,” Fred said. As he finally made it down to the bottom of the stairs on to the court level, he turned around and took it all in. Fred never believed he would see the five national championship banners in person. “This’ll probably be the last

time I’ll be here, and I want to make sure I do everything and see everything I can," Fred said. He walked around the court and watched the players warm up. He pointed out the different IU players he had watched all season on his TV. IU Athletics also upgraded their seats. Instead of sitting

35 rows up, they were two rows from the middle of the court in the red chairs. When Fred first received his tickets, he told everyone he could to watch for him on TV. He said he’d try to wave at them. Right before the game, IU gave them a special shoutout on the Jumbotron by showing the viral video of him receiving his gift, followed by a live shot of them in their seats. The crowd cheered and Fred waved to everyone. He's not used to being around a lot of IU fans at once. Living in Florida, he doesn’t really have anyone to talk IU basketball with. In that moment, he was surrounded by thousands of others who share his same love of IU. Fred took pictures of everything he could. The day wasn’t one he ever wanted to end. He planned to frame as many photos as he could and hang them in his den next to his other sports memorabilia. He hasn’t lived in Indiana for a long time, but the distance hasn’t changed his love for the program. Fred has been a Hoosier for as long as he’s remembered, and that won’t ever change. “It’s just in me,” he said.

Senior guard Devonte Green shoots the ball during the second half Jan. 11 in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. IU defeated Ohio State 66-54.

Green shines in second half as IU knocks off No. 11 OSU By Phillip Steinmetz | @PhillipHoosier

After senior guard Devonte Green shot 0-6 from the field in a win over Northwestern on Wednesday, IU head coach Archie Miller had a talk with him. Green started the game but sat the final 11 minutes as IU went on a run and didn’t look back. The senior captain wasn’t playing like himself, and as one of IU’s main offensive contributors, his play was making scoring a struggle at times. Miller challenged Green to compete as much in practice

as in the game going forward. In the days and practices before the matchup with No. 11 Ohio State, Green did and it paid off. Green scored 19 points Saturday afternoon to lead the Hoosiers to a 66-54 win over the Buckeyes. His performance also helped IU snap a four-game losing streak to Ohio State. After starting six straight games but coming off the bench against the Buckeyes, Green played like the offensive force the Hoosiers need him to be to compete against the top of the Big Ten. “The game never changes,” Green said. “Some days it’s

good, some days it’s bad. And you’ve just got to bounce back from the bad ones. So that was the mindset I had coming into today, to the next day and to every day moving forward. I always want to have a better day than the last, bad or good.” In the first half, Green was 1-4 from the floor with four points. He airballed the fourth shot he took, and some fans booed while others screamed for him to be pulled off the court. But that shot attempt ended up being the last one Green would miss for the rest of the game. He only took four shots in the second half, each of them finding the bottom of the net.

Over a span of four minutes, Green scored seven straight points to give IU a one-point lead. The layup he hit at the end of the scoring spurt came as he caught the ball a foot behind the 3-point line, jabbed left, then went to his right. As Green jumped from the beginning of the restricted arc, he came faceto-face with three Buckeyes’ defenders. When Ohio State junior forward Kaleb Wesson jumped straight up toward him with his arms up, Green brought the ball down and then back up to get off the attempt without a hand near to block it.

Once Green rose up from the ground after taking a tumble, he flexed and celebrated with his teammates. They fed off the effort he was providing in a crucial moment. “There’s nobody in that locker room that doesn’t doubt the necessity he is to our team,” junior forward Justin Smith said. “He can do a lot of different things. He can score, pass, defend. I mean, like he’s a very, very important part to our team. We need him in these big games, and he showed up.” With 10 seconds left in the game, Green found himself all alone down court and softly


dunked the ball. As Green landed, he touched the court with two hands and soaked in the moment. When Green ultimately walked off the court, he waved his arms up and down as the crowd roared. Green knew how well he performed and how important his play was. Through the ups and downs a season provides, Green’s success may be the deciding factor of how good IU can be. “We just wake up tomorrow and see if he does a good job tomorrow,” Miller said. “It is what it is. When he plays well, we’re a different team.”

IU’s potential looms large after victory over No. 11 Ohio State Caleb Coffman is a junior in sports media

After a poor showing against last place Northwestern on Wednesday in which IU narrowly escaped with a win, the walls seemed to buckle as the season seemed on the verge of crumbling much like it did a year earlier. In back-to-back games heading into IU’s matchup against Ohio State on Jan. 11, the Hoosiers had shot under 40% from the field, and the concerning trend of long scoring droughts had become more of an expectation than a surprise.  IU head coach Archie Miller was fed up and challenged his team to be better in almost every aspect of its play. He preached that the team needed to stop being selfish and return to a teamfirst focus that had seen success early in the season.  “I told the team after Northwestern I’d play five guys the whole game,” Miller said. “At some point in time, productivity, attitude, commitment and effort, all those

things can’t be in question when you’re in a game.” None of those concerns were a problem for the Hoosiers against No. 11 Ohio State as they knocked off the Buckeyes 66-54. So far this season, the word surrounding this IU team has been “potential.” The Hoosiers seemed to show it in their win against then-No. 17 Florida State University and have displayed glimpses of it in fleeting moments since. For much of the game against Ohio State — especially in the second half — IU looked to once again approach its distant potential.  “I thought we got our head out of the mud,” Miller said. “We got our attitude, we got our heads together and guys were ready to go today.” IU set the tone on the defensive end and used it as a launching pad. The Hoosiers held the Buckeyes to only 33% shooting from the field and forced 16 turnovers. Sophomore guard Rob Phinisee started for the first time this season and was a jolt of energy for a lingering IU lineup. 


Sophomore forward Damezi Anderson and his teammates cheer on the sidelines Jan. 11 in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. Teammates cheered after sophomore guard Rob Phinisee made a three point shot.

“Phinisee, big deal,” Miller said. “It always comes down to your guards setting the tone, and Rob sets the tone for us. Phinisee led the way for the Hoosiers on defense, applying unrelenting onball pressure as he snatched

four steals and grabbed seven rebounds. Over his one-and-a-half seasons in Bloomington, the sophomore guard has been proven to be IU’s best defender. While Phinisee was on the court against the Buckeyes, the Hoosiers’ were

much better in their own end as he finished with a plus-17 rating in the game. While IU’s guards made life difficult for the Buckeyes on the perimeter, junior center Joey Brunk was left on an island to defend one of the best forwards in

the Big Ten, junior Kaleb Wesson. Brunk was able to answer the call as he held Wesson to only 11 points on three-of-eleven shooting. “For the first time against Ohio State, we were able to hold serve one-on-one,” Miller said about defending Wesson. “He had mauled us for two years.” IU has been in this situation before but failed to build on the momentum following its top-25 win earlier this season. As of now, many can chalk the Hoosiers’ win up as a fluke like their Michigan State wins last season, but if they string together a few wins in conference play, IU can start floating back toward the center of the bubble. “It’s going to be 50 times harder than this was and each game after that will be 50 times harder than that one,” Miller said. “We’ve just got to keep raising our level of intensity and got to stay with it. I really think this team has a chance.”

President Donald Trump speaks Jan. 8 in the Grand Foyer of the White House about Iran firing missiles at military bases in Iraq housing U.S. troops. Thomas Rainbolt is a sophomore in physics and astrophysics

So, how about World War III? In the past few weeks the United States killed a top Iranian military leader in a drone strike, and Iran retaliated days later by firing missiles at Iraqi bases housing U.S. soldiers. One missile accidentally struck a civilian airplane and killed 176 people. The U.S. and Iran are moving toward war at a rate few expected. All measures should be taken to prevent unnecessary deaths. I cannot stress this enough: Innocent people have already died. Stop reading for a minute and let that fully sink in. What if someone you loved was on the downed Ukrainian plane — how would you feel? The stakes in this situation are too high for anyone to be uninformed, especially President Donald Trump. War affects everyone in society, not just those fighting it. In wartime, life changes dramatically. The death and destruction war would bring would be unlikely to leave many untouched. When lives are on the line, we ought to listen to anything and anyone who might lessen the carnage. Lives are at stake in our effort to combat Iran, and those in

the U.S. government should be looking at history to see how our situation got to where it is today. With that, here’s a crash course in relevant information about what brought us to our current situation. The history of relations between the U.S. and Iran is one that has abounding twists, nuances and complexities. Following Iran’s nationalization of its oil industry in 1953, which took what belonged to British Petroleum, the former name of BP Amoco PLC, the U.S. and the United Kingdom helped stage a coup that ousted the prime minister and restored the shah to power. This was the first action that caused U.S.-Iran relations to spoil. While his policies were beneficial economically, the Shah stirred anti-U.S. sentiments. The 1979 Iranian revolution ended with the current theocratic regime seizing power. The U.S., after a group of Americans in Iran were held hostage for over a year starting in 1979, imposed economic sanctions on Iran. This caused the Iranian economy to decline and gave the ruling Iranian government someone to blame for the slowing economy and lowered their ability to import goods. The U.S. handed Iran a public relations campaign. In 1983, amid the IranIraq war, a truck bomb went off that killed 241 U.S. mili-

tary personnel. In retaliation, Ronald Reagan declared Iran a state sponsor of terrorism, further reducing what Iran could get from the U.S. economically, despite continuing to sell Iran weapons in exchange for American hostages in the Middle East. Once more, the relations between the two countries grew ever more complicated. Iran was discovered to be enriching uranium for their nuclear program in 2002, and international sanctions rained down. The 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal lifted some of the sanctions on Iran in exchange for downgrading production. The deal actually helped boost the Iranian economy, thereby slightly thawing tensions with the U.S. On May 8, 2018, Trump said he was removing the U.S. from the agreement and reimposing economic sanctions. In retaliation, Iran threatened to abandon the nuclear restrictions and start producing more nuclear materials. With just that, the slight thaw gave way to an even colder and more unstable relationship with Iran. That leads us up until now. On Jan. 3, Trump ordered the killing of a top Iranian General, Qasem Soleimani. Trump has also said that he would attack historical and cultural sites, something that is banned by the

Geneva Conventions and the Hague. These international agreements prevent war crimes and service a foundation of international law. While political differences may change how you look at the president’s actions, it should be clear that there is a lot of history, international law, military strategy and other complexities that need to be taken into account. Although we do not know if the president consulted anyone, the president should strongly consider consulting Middle East historians and international law experts before he continues toward war. I would strongly encourage him to listen to them. His actions thus far have proven exceptionally cavalier and lack any hint of restraint, and in a situation that could lead to war, restraint is the ultimate virtue. His rhetoric has proven that he says what he wants, even if it’s an outright threat of war crimes. It may be premature to claim the U.S. is truly on the path toward war with Iran, but if we enter into further loss of life, we must do so only as our last resort. To do otherwise is to reduce the lives of soldiers to dispensable toys for war games and to further reduce the importance of those who have already died in this battle of wills.


Saving the planet includes feminism Rachel Cambron is a senior in English

We are living in an age where the climate is in crisis, yet many world leaders are ignoring the problem. Communities are suffering and yet our society is entirely consumption based. The focus is on gaining capital rather than helping those in need. Humanity and nature are not seen as one. Environmental sustainability is viewed as a separate issue to many or something that can be dealt with later when it’s likely too late for many. According to the International Panel on Climate Change, carbon emissions must be reduced by 45% by 2030. In our efforts toward environmental sustainability, ecofeminism becomes an essential tool. Ecofeminism became popular in the 1970s when feminists began gendering nature as “woman.” Their original arguments for ecofeminism are slightly bioessentialist, meaning they see an individual’s personality traits as dependent on their biological gender (one of the main points being that women are born more nurturing than men). But the overall argument that environmental efforts must be inclusive of all women and other genders is ex-

tremely important in environmental activism. Many Western societies and religions enforce a dichotomy of “man vs. wild” where the wilderness is something humanity must tame for it to be deemed usable or acceptable. This di-

chotomy is causing much of the problem in our mindset regarding the environment — nature is not something to coexist with, rather something to conquer and exploit for resources. Even corporations pushing “green initiatives” are sim-

ply looking to create cleaner technology rather than considering overconsumption and the belief that humans rule the land as the flaw. This is inherently a patriarchal concept — seeking to control and conform. Here’s where ecofeminism comes in.

First, ecofeminism must be intersectional: poor, indigenous and already exploited communities see the first of the environmental effects. A couple of examples are Kiribati (islands disappearing due to rising tides) and hunt-

ing seasons in the arctic shortening for indigenous communities. Therefore, the needs of all women and non-binary people all around the world must be taken into account. Ecofeminism must be against the idea of overpopulation — if resources were truly distributed equally we would likely not have world hunger, so therefore ecofeminism and socialism must coexist. We must depart from the mindset of a consumption-based society and protect the resources that we have, eradicating the “throw away” mentality — reuse what can be reused. Ecofeminism also looks to dismantle the dichotomy of man vs. nature and believes we should view humanity and nature as one. Without nature we could not exist. If we begin to coexist with nature, instead of viewing it as something to conquer, the earth will flourish. For this reason, ecofeminism is essential to liberating ourselves and our planet from patriarchy and overconsumption. It seeks to create a world that focuses on women’s spirituality with the earth and not to exploit or control it.


A tree stands Jan. 12 near the Jordan River. Ecofeminism became popular in the ‘70s when women started referring to nature as being female.

Lack of talent in college basketball leaves no clear front-runners Jack Grossman is a senior in sports media.

College basketball has always been the ultimate chaos sport. And the season finale takes shape through March Madness, an annual circus that sees upsets and pandemonium sweep the nation. The 68-team single elimination tournament format shows that the best team doesn’t always win. However, the entertainment factor of the sport being so unpredictable is what makes the three week tournament electric. But in the 2019-20 season we have seen a whole new level of equality in college basketball. There has never been more than seven different teams ranked No. 1 in the AP poll in a single season. By New Year’s, five different squads had already held the top spot in the county. There have been four games this season where a team, per analytics expert Ken Pomeroy, lost a game that it had at least a 99 percent chance of winning. Two of those games — University of Evansville beating thenNo. 1 University of Kentucky and Stephen F. Austin University defeated then-No. 1 Duke University — provided two of the five biggest point spread upsets in the last 15 years of college hoops. The Duke loss was es-


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 atmosphere and create a really electric-type atmosphere,” Wurtzman said. “We're not just only focusing on our individual matches but really focusing on how everyone's doing on each court and as a team.” The Hoosiers claimed the momentum early on, taking the doubles point with 6-1 and 6-3 victories. “Winning the first doubles point is very important because that gives us momen-

pecially crazy, as it ended Duke’s 150 game nonconference home game winning streak. It was also the first time the Blue Devils lost to a non-power conference team at home since 1983. Another example of craziness began Jan. 2, when Michigan State beat Illinois by 20 points. Three days later, Illinois blasted Purdue 63-37 in Champaign, Illinois. On Sunday, No. 8 MSU traveled to Purdue. Naturally, the Boilermakers dismantled the Spartans by 29 points. tum into the singles matches,” IU sophomore Carson Haskins said. “And I try to keep that same energy from the doubles match into the singles match.” Haskins along with his partner, senior William Pierkarsky, took their doubles match 6-1 after starting off 5-0. With a full crowd to start the morning, the atmosphere inside the IU Tennis Center had a big game feel. “It's good that we got the quick doubles wins today,” IU sophomore Patrick Fletchall said.

Big Ten teams own an incredible 32-5 record against other Big Ten teams at home. That would lead to the argument of, it’s hard to win on the road in college basketball. But on the opposite end of the spectrum, ACC home teams have an abysmal 15-22 record against in-league foes. We can argue back and forth whether this level of parity and unpredictability is good for the sport, and there’s good arguments on each side of that topic. But let’s focus on the main cause

for the chaos: an uncomfortable lack of talent within college basketball. College basketball sees ebbs and flows in its talent level on an annual basis. That’s just what happens when the sport sees this much player turnover every year. In the one-and-done era, a big indicator for how much talent there is in NCAA basketball is how good the freshman class is. Some years that leads to really good classes. A prime example was the 2018-19


The IU men’s tennis team gathers in a circle with coaches before a singles match against Purdue at the IU Tennis Center in April of 2017.

The doubles wins were so quick that Fletchall’s match didn’t finish, ending at 4-4 after the other two matches were decided.

Despite not finishing that match, Fletchall’s 6-3, 6-2 singles match result was the fourth and deciding point for the Hoosiers.

season, with Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett, Colby White, Tyler Herro and even Romeo Langford leading what was one of the most talentpacked seasons college basketball has seen in recent memory. The 2017-18 season was similar as Trae Young, Marvin Bagley III, DeAndre Ayton, Colin Sexton and others dominated the landscape. But not every season has such a great incoming class. Other campaigns that saw subpar freshman classes include the 2012-13 and 201516 seasons. Both are great comparisons to the talent level of the 2019-20 freshman class. So why does this campaign have less talent than other seasons with not-sostellar freshman classes? The main culprit is an increased talent drain that has seen more and more good college players terminate their eligibility early in order to play professionally. In 2010, 51 college players declared early for the NBA Draft. In 2015, there were 47 players that left college early for the draft such as Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell. However, since that point, the amount of early entrants has significantly grown — a whopping 86 players exited their schools with eligibility remaining to

enter the 2019 draft. That has left college basketball without a significant amount of returning talent. For the first time in the 66year history of the ACC, the conference saw 13 of the 15 All-ACC player members leave school early, with only third team members Jordan Nwora and John Mooney returning. The lack of retention combined with the subpar recruiting class has caused an all-time low in college basketball talent. And this trend is likely to continue. Players — rightfully — want to leave early to be able to make money by playing professionally. NBA-caliber players bypassing college altogether will also likely become more popular, whether it be the routes that LaMelo Ball, RJ Hampton and James Wiseman took this season or by being able to jump straight to the NBA with the eventual end of the one-and-done rule. So get used to the chaos, because more likely than not, NCAA basketball is going to see a lot more of it moving forward. As CBS analyst Jon Rothstien often tweets, “Anarchy? Nope. Just College Basketball.”

“I really wanted to get a win today, a solid win, so I think it was on my mind,” Fletchall said. “But ultimately, as long as the team wins, that’s what's most important.” Along with Haskins and Fletchall, the Hoosiers had individual victories from Zac Brodney, Vikash Singh, Andrew Redding and Piekarsky. Even in the dominant victory, Wurtzman said that just getting out on the court will be an improvement for the Hoosiers moving forward. “We just needed to get back to competing again,” Wurtzman said. “We've had a

long break since our last tournament, and some of our guys weren’t able to play a full fall season, so they didn't get as many matches.” The Hoosiers will get to compete again Friday against the University of Memphis, a team that Wurtzman said IU knows. “We see them in the fall at the regionals, and they have a very strong team,” Wurtzman said. “Over the last five or eight years they've had very good players. So we know coming in it's going to be a very competitive match right off the bat.”

IU trounced in weekend matches against Iowa and Illinois By Tyler Tachman | @Tyler_T15

IU head coach Angel Escobedo didn’t get everything he wanted for his birthday. His team was unable to gift him a win Sunday. IU dropped its second conference match in three days to Illinois on Sunday after a drubbing by Iowa Friday night. On Sunday, Escobedo’s birthday, sophomore Graham Rooks was the only IU wrestler to pick up a victory as the Hoosiers struggled again en route to a 32-3 loss in Champaign, Illinois. Rooks may have relied on some birthday energy of his own, as he turned 20 on Sunday. But while many matches were close, IU wasn’t able to put any other points on the scoreboard. “I think Illinois was more aggressive in their attacks,” Escobedo said. “When they saw the opening they took them. Both guys are trying to get there, but we were too hesitant.” Outside of two technical falls by Illinois, six of the nine IU losses were by a slim margin of four points or less. “We’re in the position to win matches, but we just have to be able to capitalize,” Escobedo said. “Now, it’s just a belief thing of making it happen. Instead of being close, we have to try to make that next step of getting that signature win.” Junior Jake Covaciu, sophomore Rudy Streck and freshmen Cayden Rooks and Nick Willham all came

up short 3-1 in their respective matches. IU’s dismal start to its conference slate began when Iowa came to town on Friday night. The Hawkeyes flexed their muscles and No.1 ranking in Bloomington, leaving no doubt that they are one of the country’s premier squads. Iowa collected three pins on their way to a 41-0 beatdown of the Hoosiers in Wilkinson Hall. Despite the score, Escobedo wasn’t discouraged by his team’s attitude. “I thought for the most part up and down the lineup we competed,” Escobedo said in a press release. “I don’t think we took a back seat to them, and we were looking for our opportunities. We were in position to win some of those matches.” Friday night opened with IU sophomore Graham Rooks facing off against No. 3 Pat Lugo in the 149-pound weight class. After trailing by as many as six points, Rooks scored consecutive takedowns to cut the score to 7-5. But in the end, Lugo prevailed with a 10-6 victory. The bout set the tone for the rest of the weekend for the Hoosiers, whose conference record dropped to 0-2 on the season and 0-3 overall. Against Illinois, many IU wrestlers were able to hang with Iowa for a period or two but were never able to break through. At 174-pounds, junior Jake Covaviu put up a fight for the Hoosiers, only drop-

they were tired.” While some matches were competitive, others were dominated by Iowa. Heavy-weight Rudy Streck fell in the first period. Iowa’s two-time national champion Spencer Lee didn’t waste any time with Liam Cronin at 125-pounds, as the match ended early with a technical fall and 15-0 victory. Shortly after, sophomore Jonathan Moran, who filled in for the suspended Kyle Luigs, was pinned in the first period. The match came more than a week after IU’s final individual tournament, the Midlands Championships, in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. Three Hoosiers wrestlers secured spots on the podium. One of the placers was No. 6 Brock Hudkins, who suffered a knee-injury in the semi-final match and had to sit out the both bouts. The timetable is still unclear for Hudkins’ return.  IU will be on to Big Ten competition with No. 8 Northwestern up next on Saturday in Evanston, Illinois.  The clashes this weekend were a good gauge for IU to see how much progress it has made and how far it still has to go. “You can’t wait on it and think that things are going to change,” Escobedo said. “It’s not about being sad that you lost, it’s about having that burning desire to get better from a loss and keeping it positive. We still have time to get better, but at the same time everyday counts.” Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Today is a 5 — Get into a fun and productive work phase, with Venus in Pisces. Physical performance can provide exceptional results. Prioritize health, wellness and fitness this month. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Today is an 8 — Artistic efforts work in your favor. You're especially lucky in love, with Venus in Pisces Savor and create beauty this month. Share your heart.
