Then-sophomore guard James Blackmon Jr. ices his leg during locker room interviews March 24 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. Blackmon underwent season-ending knee surgery Dec. 30, 2015, and missed the remainder of the season before fully being cleared to play in early October.
Better than before Blackmon Jr. still has more to prove at IU

ames Blackmon Jr. is ready to make up for lost time. The junior guard, who finished top10 in the conference in scoring as a freshman, suffered a right knee injury during a non-contact drill in practice two days before conference play last season. Blackmon was shut down for the remainder of the season and underwent successful knee surgery as he watched his teammates win a Big Ten regular season title and make a Sweet Sixteen run. In that time, the 6-foot-4 guard says he became a student of the game more than ever. He thinks he’s yet to show his full potential in an IU uniform. “It was hard to sit out, but I still had to be there every day for my teammates,” Blackmon said. “Just by watching the game, I was seeing spots where I can do good things and also just being more vocal. I’ve carried that over.”
The Marion, Indiana, native worked tirelessly during his rehabilitation to become an even better player than he was before. In addition to the help IU provided, he was aided by both of his younger brothers. Vijay Blackmon, a senior in high school, had the same injury as James in the past, and his youngest brother, eighth grader Jalen, would play him in oneon-one at home every day during the summer. “My brother had the same injury I had, so I would just ask him if everything was normal and I would just talk to him every day,” James Blackmon Jr. said. “And my younger brother is a guy who works harder than anyone I’ve ever seen, so there’s things I took from my younger brother that’s helped me with my game.”

Trigger warnings for sexual assault topics covered in classes are another way Skirvin said faculty can help accommodate students who have experienced assault. “I just think it’s important for people to have as much information as they can so they can make informed choices,” Skirvin said. Leslie Fasone, assistant dean of students of women’s and gender affairs, spoke about the problems the University has with students not reporting their sexual assaults and what might cause students not to report them. Fasone said lack of reporting can be an issue if underage students fear repercussions if they were at a party where alcohol was present. “Our sexual misconduct policy
While Ivy Tech Community College is making advancements in moving toward a safe work and learning environment for the LGBTQ community, it is still facing issues of discrimination. The college has announced a new transgender-inclusive policy for students and faculty, but is also facing a lawsuit for allegedly discriminating against a faculty member based on her sexual orientation. Kimberly Hively, a former faculty member at Ivy Tech, alleged in 2014 that she was not promoted due to her sexual orientation after working for the institution for 14 years. Hively filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana against South Bend, Indiana-based Ivy Tech, claiming the school was violating Title VII of the Civil Rights Act by discriminating against her due to her sexual orientation — a form of sex discrimination. Ivy Tech successfully moved the trial court to dismiss Hively’s claim, arguing Title VII does not protect employees from anti-gay discrimination. Lambda Legal, Hively’s representation, argued several court rulings and a recent decision by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission support Hively’s contention that sexual orientation discrimination is sex discrimination and the dismissal should be reversed, according to their case summary. The Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals granted en banc review in the case, where the court will hear the employment discrimination appeal. Jeff Fanter, senior vice president for student experience, communications and marketing, said Ivy Tech denies Hively’s allegations. “Ivy Tech recognizes the importance of this issue and will continue to conduct its operations in a manner that is consistent with its statement of values and its policies prohibiting discrimination,” Fanter said. Ivy Tech released a new policy this week to protect transgender and gender nonconforming students and faculty from discrimination, according to a press release.

Rape-supportive cultures lead to victim-blaming and shaming that often discourage sexual assault victims from reporting their assaults, sexual assault counselor Ann Skirvin said Tuesday night in the Indiana Memorial Union while speaking to faculty, staff and students about how they can help end sexual assault issues at IU. Skirvin said rape-supportive culture is a culture in which sexual assault, rape and violence are common and in which prevalent attitudes, norms, practices and media normalize or even condone sexual assault. Skirvin asked the audience to share some ways they see rape-supportive culture
around them. Sarah Nagy, senior associate director of the Office of First Year Experience Programs, said she consistently sees victim blaming based on the victim’s consumption of alcohol before an assault. Another staff member said she often hears people talk about the lives of rapists being ruined, which shifts responsibility of their crimes away from the perpetrators. Skirvin said the first person a sexual assault victim tells about their assault has an affect on whether or not that victim reports their assault. “If the first person someone tells blames or shames them, it often shuts that person down, but if they’re understanding and supportive, they’re more likely to report,” Skirvin said.

Potpourri of the Arts to preview in Teter Since 1993, the Potpourri of the Arts Concert has given student groups the opportunity to celebrate the spirit of African-American performance. This year’s concert will be 8 p.m. Nov. 5 in the IU Auditorium. At 8 p.m. today in the Teter Nest, the groups will have a sneak peak of the show. The ensembles will present a preview that includes their individual expressions of African-American music. Olivia Thompson, a graduate student working with the event, said it is open to everyone across cultural groups and appeals to a wide range of musical tastes including spirituals, jazz and other forms of black contemporary music. “The event is going to be very uplifting, encouraging and it’s family friendly,” Thompson said. “We invite people of all cultures and backgrounds to come.” The performance features the African American Dance Company, the African American Choral Ensemble
The driver who fled from the hitand-run Sunday has been found by Bloomington police. The driver, Frelimo Kweheria, was charged with leaving the scene and reckless driving. After the accident, Kweheria and his passenger abandoned his car and left the scene on foot. Kweheria, 22, managed to flee to Fort Wayne, Indiana, though police are unsure how he traveled that far as he left his car at the crime scene, Bloomington Police Department Lt. Brad Seifer said. The passenger who was reportedly with him has yet to be found. Detectives went to his apartment at Acadia Court after the accident Sunday but discovered he had already left. According to police reports he was staying at his mother’s house in Fort Wayne. BPD received a call by Kweheria telling them where he was after he found out the police were looking for him. He has since refused to speak and has requested a lawyer. Kweheria came away from the car accident with a sprained wrist but no other injuries.

Professors speak on ethics of premature baby care By Chris Mura email@example.com | @chris__mura
As Tom French and Kelley Benham French’s daughter, Juniper, bounced around the room, images were projected on-screen from her first couple of months of life as a premature baby on the verge of death. Juniper was born at 23 weeks and 6 days, and the decision to prolong her life or not was the central focus of the Frenches’ talk Tom French on ethics in medical care of premature babies Tuesday night. The Frenches, both professors in The Media School, focused on the ethics of making medical decisions for a child who could not Kelley express her Benham own wishes French yet, such as the decision to keep her on life support despite an 80 percent chance of death or disability. “There’s a window of time when a baby gains agency,” Benham French said. “They
become their own person with their own rights, and our desires don’t matter as much.” Benham French discussed the possible consequences if Juniper survived and grew up disabled. “Is she going to blame us?” she asked. “Is she going to hate us?” Ethics was one of the greatest factors during the course of the treatment, she said. “What’s going to be important for us, whether she lives or dies, is that we feel good about the people that we were in this moment,” Benham French said. After the Frenches concluded the lecture portion of the event, the floor was opened to questions from the audience, many of whom were pre-med students. Though they are very committed to the life of their daughter, the Frenches were firm on the topic of abortion. “You can’t look at a 23week baby and not think about abortion,” Benham French said. “It has a personality and a will, but that doesn’t mean that I would have wanted a politician involved in a conversation with my doctor.” French voiced his support for the right to choose as pictures of his daughter lingered
on-screen. “The idea of politicians giving their speeches in Congress, making their decisions for women, it’s very upsetting,” he said. The pair was eager to address the ethics of accumulating more than a $1 million in hospital bills to save the life of one child. “We could be paying for Ted Bundy to grow up, or we could be paying for Carl Sagan,” Benham French said. “Most micro-preemies either die in the first three days or they turn out like Juniper. They’re very expensive but they get out, and they do well, and they have a great life.” Even if Juniper had disabilities, they would not have regretted the decision to keep her alive, Benham French said. “Parents who take home disabled kids surveyed years down the road rate their quality of life as very high,” she said. “Your priorities change.” Near the end of the discussion, Juniper was brought in, and her parents her carried her around while they discussed her intimate medical details. “She’s not just okay,” said Benham French, looking at her giggling daughter. “She’s amazing. She’s hell on wheels.”
Speaker discusses women’s pay equity By Regina Mack firstname.lastname@example.org | @regmack_
Men are the problem in pay equity and men need to be the solution, Microsoft Startup Growth Partners Director Matt Wallaert said Tuesday evening in Godfrey Corporate and Graduate Center while speaking to a group of more than 30 students. IU Center of Excellence for Women in Technology and the new Women in Economics student group collaborated to bring Wallaert, a behavioral scientist who specializes in making products that change behavior, to IU to discuss problems with and solutions to the gender pay gap. “You brought me to talk about gender equity, and I’m talking to a bunch of women,” Wallaert said to laughs from the crowd. Wallaert built getraised.com, a resource designed to help women in the process of negotiating pay raises. The website has helped women gain a total of $2.3 billion in raises, Wallaert said. The first step women who use getraised.com take is entering data to find out if they are being underpaid.
Wallaert said women are underpaid by 30 percent on average. Latina women are underpaid by 50 percent, black women by 35 percent and white women by 20 percent. “The first thing you have to do — and get other women to do — is to check their salary,” Wallaert said. The second step of the process helps women create a plan to ask their bosses for a raise and includes figuring out how much of a raise they want when talking to human resource employees. “If you ask for a 3-percent raise, almost every HR person will be like, ‘Sure,’” Wallaert said. “Twelve percent will be an almost automatic no.” Wallaert said he recommends asking for an 8-percent raise because it is the largest raise that still has a high likelihood of actually occurring. Wallaert said women are socialized into making emotional appeals — for example, saying they need more money to take care of their son — when asking for raises. By contrast, men are socialized into making appeals that are business-based. Wallaert said women need to make appeals that use data
and facts to prove their value to the company. Wallaert said women should assess what they have done for the company in the last six months and what they will do in the coming months and added they should set up negotiations with bosses in a conference room with a whiteboard rather than talking over a desk. Karis Neufeld, an economics major, asked Wallaert what to do when interviewing for a first job where there is no data for performance in the past six months. “What you want to show them is how you’re different from their normal hire,” Wallaert said. He recommended talking about internships, research and interesting side projects as much as possible. Brett Wiley, a graduate student in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, asked Wallaert if he was suggesting women need to act more like men in order to negotiate raises successfully. Wallaert enthusiastically refuted this suggestion. “Communicating with data and logic is not inherently male,” Wallaert said. “With compensation, we happen to know that talking with data is more effective.”

Hollingsworth emphasizes policy over politics By Alessandro Tomich firstname.lastname@example.org
Republican candidate for Indiana’s 9th Congressional District Trey Hollingsworth made his case to the Bloomington Rotary Club on Monday. He introduced himself as a conservative Christian, a businessman and an outsider and said he came to talk about policy, not politics. “Representatives should have their own interests aligned with our interests,” he said. Hollingsworth said he wants to instill term limits to prevent politicians from being career politicians instead of servants of their constituents. “I want real, committed public servants in Washington,” he said. Hollingsworth has said that his run for Congress was prompted by “desperation” and dissatisfaction with the way current politicians are running the country. As a multimillionaire businessman, Hollingsworth employs more than 100 Hoosiers in an aluminum remanufacturing operation. “We’ve got to go back to a regulatory environment that enables businesses to grow,” he said. Hollingsworth said federal regulations and President Obama’s health care law have crushed job growth. Despite his claim, since the United States recovered from the Great Recession, the country has seen more than 70 months of privatesector job growth under President Obama. When he travels throughout Indiana, Hollingsworth said Hoosiers express many of the same concerns as him. “We feel less safe, we feel

less prosperous and we feel less free,” he said. Regarding safety, he said he does not want Americans to feel unsafe. He wants terrorist groups like ISIS to feel threatened by expanding our military. Hollingsworth also called for major tax code reform by proposing to make it simpler, flatter and fairer, though he did not say how specific tax policy changes would benefit everyday Americans. “I want to see the federal government take its nose
away from local communities,” Hollingsworth said. He said it is time for Americans to reclaim their government from political insiders because they do not work for the people. “We are at a crossroads,” he said. “We must do better than what Washington is doing right now.” For some voters, Hollingsworth’s status as a political outsider is not something they are concerned with. Hollingsworth’s business, which employs blue-collar
workers, is something some voters say means he understands their needs. During a question-andanswer period, one member of the audience asked Hollingsworth whether he supported the 2010 Supreme Court decision Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which allows independent organizations to spend unlimited amounts of money on behalf of political candidates. The Supreme Court ruled money is a form of speech.
“I have a lot of concern that we should not abridge people’s First Amendment right,” he said, which sharply contrasts with his opponent Shelli Yoder’s position. Yoder said at last week’s Rotary Club meeting she want to repeal the decision because many Americans are concerned it gives corporations too much influence over politicians. Steve Balmer, the program chair for the event, said he thinks the country is going in the wrong direc-

Autism-friendly programs available at public library By Ariel Sexson email@example.com
After realizing a need for more autism-friendly resources, the Monroe County Public Library has implemented two different programs that make up its relatively new autism series. The autism series includes two different programs. The first is a series of autism-friendly movie showings, which are for anyone 5 years and older. These are unique because, unlike a real movie theater, the lights are on, people are encouraged to walk around and talk, and the sound isn’t as loud. The second program is sensory story time for kids ages 3-6, which has lower lighting, plain walls and soothing music to create an interactive and educational experience. “The library is always interested in meeting community needs, and we look for ways to offer unique programs not offered anywhere else,” said Michael Hoerger, communications and marketing manager.
The 2011 Pew Internet report found 27 percent of Americans are living with a disability that interferes with the activities of daily life. The goal of the library’s programs is to provide a place for people with disabilities to go experience events in a setting that is formatted more toward their needs. Although these programs are geared toward people on the autism spectrum, they are open to anyone. “Both programs are offered once a month, and there are always a lot of people at them,” Hoerger said. These programs were started a couple years ago after families of autistic children requested an alternative to the more structured format of movie theaters, which prevented them from going. The Monroe County Public Library recently received the Indiana Libraries Federation Award. Several individuals wrote recommendation letters for the library as part of the selection process for the award. One of them was Kristie Brown Lofland,
an educational consultant for the Indiana Resource Center for Autism. “The Monroe County Public Library has become a leader in our community in extending a welcoming atmosphere and improved services to individuals with disabilities and should be awarded support by any possible means,” Lofland said. Another recommendation letter came from Cristina C. Wray, librarian for the Center for Disability Information and Referral. “I was deeply impressed by their commitment to providing quality inclusive service to people of all disabilities,” Wray said. With these new programs, the library was trying to fill a need that needed to be met in the community, and it has received many positive comments from families who use it. The Monroe County Public Library is always looking to learn about new needs in the community and find different ways to meet them. “We hit the mark,” Hoerger said.

STEVE’S CONSERVATIVE CORNER
Restore civility to politics STEVEN ARANYI is a senior in history.
ILLUSTRATION BY MERCER T. SUPPIGER | IDS
How do we handle Russia? Neither candidate is approaching relations with Russia appropriately Sergei Lavrov, the often well-spoken foreign minister of Russia, sat down with CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour to talk about our two countries. Amanpour asked Lavrov what he thought of Donald Trump’s recent “grab them by the pussy” scandal, to which he responded, “there are so many pussies in your presidential campaign on both sides that I prefer not to comment.” Wow. We may not be surprised to hear such harsh words from a Russian government official. However, Lavrov served as the Russian correspondent to the United Nations for ten years, and he’s gener-
ally seen as a diplomat who serves as a foil to Vladimir Putin’s egomania. To hear him insult the entire presidential race is definitely unnerving. The worst part is that he is absolutely correct. We are facing a decision between two candidates who have very few satisfied supporters compared to years past. Our presidential race is catty, hate-driven and ultimately a poor reflection of America to the rest of the world. Hillary Clinton’s hate speech toward Russia is more ridiculous than proactive. Her campaign chairman John Podesta has blamed the Kremlin for leaking transcripts of speeches she gave and hack-
ing the Democratic National Committee. He even went as far as to insinuate that the Trump campaign may have been in cahoots with Russia. None of these allegations have any basis in reality, and the Clinton campaign is looking eerily similar to the War-Hawk Republicans of yore. Starting a fight with Russia over a conspiracy seems like a recipe for disaster to us. She is using antiRussian sentiment that has existed in America since before the Cold War to try and sway voters. It’s way too risky, and it may lead to some serious problems for us moving forward. Donald Trump, on the other hand, is much too ea-
ger to get in bed with Putin. Trump has, on numerous occasions, remarked on Putin’s supposed strength as a leader. This is the same Putin who routinely oppresses his people and fuels wars in the Middle East to no end. We aren’t sure that’s a great stance to take, Donald. Even if Putin is a powerful world leader, he’s using his powers for evil. We can’t stand behind that in any way, shape,or form. The world has been turned upside down. We have a Democratic presidential candidate warmongering with a foreign power and a Republican candidate supporting Russia. This election cycle is anything but boring.
Overall, both candidates are handling the situation with Russia terribly. Clinton is only using Russia as a platform piece. She has to understand that being so tough with them would never work in reality. Trump makes it seem like he and Putin go out and play golf once a week like old business partners. Though Lavrov’s comment on our presidential campaign is jarring to hear, it is far more jarring to think how unfit our candidates really are for office. The Editorial Board believes America will have to strap in and hold on tight for the next four years because it’s going to be a bumpy ride, no matter what.
FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH
For Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, the clock may be ticking In the age of social media, few individuals have caused such disruption in global politics as Julian Assange, the Australian national who launched the controversial media organization WikiLeaks in 2007. WikiLeaks, a champion of transparency and openness of information, has drawn the ire of the political establishment — as well as a sizable contingent of everyday citizens — by publicizing secret and, at times, sensitive information. Early Monday morning, a WikiLeaks tweet accused an unidentified state actor of eliminating Assange’s internet access in London’s Ecuadorean embassy, where he was granted asylum in 2012. The events could spell trouble for Assange — and potentially WikiLeaks — in the future.
I find it difficult to convince myself that the fact that this occurred the same weekend that WikiLeaks divulged transcripts of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s enigmatic speeches to Goldman Sachs executives is merely serendipitous. Roughly two days earlier, on Saturday, WikiLeaks released the transcripts, which former challenger Bernie Sanders used to rally his supporters and Clinton’s campaign staunchly refused to make public. WikiLeaks has since accused Ecuador of cutting Assange’s access, but details remain scant. It’s not unreasonable to consider the possibility that this was the result of strong-arming. After all, Ecuador has provided him sanctuary for more than four years, and its motivation for severing his inter-
net access remains to be seen. For months following WikiLeaks’ disclosures of nearly 20,000 emails between high-ranking officials of the Democratic National Committee, media outlets and political players, including President Obama and Clinton’s campaign manager Robbie Mook, insinuated Russia was behind the attacks. Today’s editorial piece references the Clinton campaign’s propensity to blame the world’s ills on Russia, and this is the most prominent example. There’s no concrete evidence to reinforce these claims, but screaming “Putin!” is one way to divert attention. Regardless of the true hacker’s identity, Monday’s news shows the precariousness of Assange’s position and could conceivably
signal greater problems for WikiLeaks. Should he leave or be evicted from the embassy, he faces near-certain extradition to Sweden to be questioned about an alleged rape that occurred in 2010. From there, it’s likely he’d be extradited to the U.S., where he would face questioning and potential charges regarding WikiLeaks. With this news, it becomes more plausible that Assange will ultimately be extradited. If it is determined Assange did commit the crimes of which he’s been accused in Sweden, he should receive an appropriate punishment. But for his so-called offenses related to WikiLeaks? For whatever reason, the Clinton campaign refused to release the Goldman Sachs transcripts. By publishing them, WikiLeaks did not alter the

course of the election or expose Clinton’s identity as the Antichrist. But it did make information public the electorate had every right to see, especially in a pivotal election year. Even though the revelations weren’t groundbreaking, they deserved to be seen, and they were. In reality, it’s probably a matter of time before Assange is forced to face the music. Regardless of his fate, the entire field of journalism has grown thanks to WikiLeaks and its commitment to transparency and openness. @daniel_kilc_ email@example.com
Consider the consequences of family reuniﬁcation The child welfare system identifies its primary goal as family reunification: the process of returning or uniting children in the foster care system with biological family members. Although statistics illustrate that family reunification is successful 53 percent of the time, we believe family reunification should not always be the primary goal. The Department of Children & Family Services prioritizes foster care youth placement with direct family members with little regard to the caregiver’s qualifications to attend to the child’s needs. Children are often removed from the care of their biological family members multiple times, enabling environmental instability. As a result of this environmental instability, children in the child welfare system are often exposed to an excessive degree of physical and emotional high risk and long-
term trauma. This concern is based on the premise that many of these children who have been removed from the care of biological family members have often been exposed to adverse childhood experiences, or ACEs. Abuse, neglect and household dysfunction are the three main categories of ACE and can likely result in severe cognitive and developmental delays. In order to best accommodate for these circumstances, caregivers should be subjected to standardized, routine evaluations in efforts to determine the quality of care they can provide for the children, despite the status of a biological or non-biological relationship. In addition, DCFS should require thorough evaluations of children to determine the level of influence of the potentially adverse childhood experiences. Statistics reveal that 1 out
of 184 children are in foster care and every 36 seconds a child is abused or neglected in the United States. In continuation, infants and toddlers represent the largest age group placed in the foster care system. This population is also at highest risk for long-term developmental effects. During the first three years of a child’s life, the myelin sheath, which insulates neuron messages, is at a pivotal stage of development. As a result, the neuro messages may be significantly affected, impaired or delayed. These early neurological messages are encoded in the child’s implicit memory and have the ability to affect learned long-term behaviors, emotion regulation and coping techniques. Infants and toddlers learn emotion regulation through secure attachments with their primary caregiver. Speech and language development
rely heavily on face-to-face interactions in which the mirroring neurons imitate the movement of the caregiver. A consistent caregiver allows the child to form a secure attachment by fostering a nurturing environment. It is imperative that children, ages zero to three, with ACEs are placed in a home environment with foster parents that are able to expose them to the normal developmental processes they may have missed prior to the new placement. Although some may argue for the importance of family reunification, citing the child’s early attachment to family members, without a proper evaluation, it is unknown whether the child will receive the necessary quality of care. Children in an abusive home are at a higher risk for significant impairments to their typical neurological development; they require a heightened level of early

intervention to combat these negative experiences. Foster care parents must be available to meet the needs of severely affected children in order to prevent long term cognitive and developmental effects. Automatically assuming that the child is better off with biological family members devalues the need for necessary qualifications for combating the child’s exposure to early adverse experiences. By requiring all potential caregivers to complete a standardized evaluation, we aim to abolish the current developmental risk posed by the process of reunification to infant and toddler foster children.
In light of some recent events on campus, and the election in general, there was something I felt needed to be addressed. This really got me thinking that we need more civility and common sense in American politics. Everyone knows about the partisan gridlock in Washington, D.C. Furthermore, everyone is tired of it. I wish Congress would be more productive. After all, that’s what we are electing them to do. In my opinion, one of the main reasons that they can’t be more productive is due to the lack of civility in Washington. In general, people have to restore civility to political discourse, as well. The presidential election this year does us no favors in terms of civility. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney in 2012 were far more civil than Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, who have made name-calling a normal occurrence in the 2016 election. I believe the damage being done during this cycle is worse than usual as far as encouraging positive discourse in politics. All I’m getting at is that there is no need to demonize the other side when attempting to engage in productive discourse. Of course people may disagree with your personal viewpoints, but that is the point, right? The beauty of this country is that you can and will disagree with others. Polls that came out on Monday regarding the direction of the country were rather telling. At -37 points and -32 points, they showed Americans, by and large, do not agree with the country’s current path. In the heat of this current election, with the election approaching quickly, I use this opportunity as a plea for individuals on both sides of the aisle to hold themselves to a higher standard and restore civility to politics. The politics of Washington are on display for all to see. It is time for us to begin demanding more from our elected officials. Our country is at crossroads, and we must choose the right path. If elected officials are civil to one another, who knows what will happen? I can tell you it’d be better than what we have right now. I feel both candidates on the top of the ticket are the wrong choice for America and will not be good for encouraging civility in American politics. However, I believe there are principled candidates, many of whom I respect very much, who can put their differences aside once they’re elected to Congress. Let’s be honest: the deterioration of civility and discourse benefits nobody. At this crucial moment in our history, it is of utmost importance that people come together to discuss solutions for problems that must be solved. This requires a change in culture. Not just in Washington but also on college campuses and everywhere in between. As a conservative, I doubt I will agree with much a liberal has to say. But it’s key that we discuss our views and find some sort of middle ground and try to find solutions to problems that plague Americans every day. My hope is that the people and elected officials of this great country will wake up on the morning of Nov. 9 and realize that the lack of civility cannot proceed any longer. I beg the American people to help this change. We certainly are capable. firstname.lastname@example.org

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Think positively about November’s election Please think positively about this election despite the threats, vilification and bad behavior of Donald Trump and his followers. On the Democratic side we have a diverse group of highly committed, honorable people who want to serve not to enrich themselves but to better our situation. If you believe in democracy, the Constitution, balance of power between the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government, and freedom of the press, religion and assembly, we are with you. If you are committed to saving the planet and the environment, we welcome you.
We are female, African American, Hispanic, gay, Native American, immigrant, disabled, elderly workers, many having suffered discrimination, and we should have rights enforced by a government that fulfills our aspirations and needs. In September in the East Wing of the White House, I observed bright, enthusiastic, kind young people of many ethnic and racial origins, all serving our president, which gives hope for the future and is a dream worth pursuing. But this won’t happen with Republican politics as usual. Our Republican-dominated Congress never cooperated with
President Obama on anything and dissed him regularly, encouraging a record number of death threats and weakening our nation. Locally, Bloomington could be a better place for everyone. Many Democrats want to implement Bernie Sanders’ progressive agenda. To do so we need your vote up and down the ballot, lest we have again a Republicandominated Indiana state legislature whose policies are often embarrassing, such as the hunting issue on the ballot, another example like RFRA. It would allow, for instance, canned hunting — shooting penned deer — and
hunting in municipalities, it seems. Wouldn’t we rather see an Indiana legislature that focuses on gun safety, stopping gerrymandering, voting rights instead of suppressing students’ and others’ votes, more programs for needy Hoosiers and jobs, cleanup of coal-fired plants that generate more pollution than most states, affordable higher education and healthcare — especially for women — and better infrastructure? Candidates’ policy goals show that Democrats share more of our ideals. Vote love, not hate! Claire Robertson Bloomington
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Pettiness highlights lack of political accountability This September, Congressional candidate Tennessee Trey Hollingsworth finally visited IU to speak at an event sponsored by the IU College Republicans. Although Hollingsworth is running for Congress in a district that encompasses IU and Bloomington, he did not live in Indiana until 13 months ago. This is because Hollingsworth, a multimillionaire son of a multimillionaire, has decided he can buy our votes. As a student and voter, I decided to attend. Since Hollingsworth has never been in any sort of political office and has been re-
luctant to answer questions on his positions from voters or reporters, I decided I would politely and respectfully ask Hollingsworth what he would do to get big money out of politics. I also decided to record his response. This a process commonly referred to as “tracking.” It is a legally protected practice used by both parties to hold politicians accountable to the people they serve. Tracking ensures that the public knows what a candidate is saying at public events. Since Hollingsworth has never spent a day of his life in
office, and since his website does not list his policy positions, it is especially important that we know what he has to say to potential voters. I was not allowed to ask the question. I was ejected from the meeting before I could speak to Hollingsworth by the president of the College Republicans. In doing so, the College Republicans demonstrated how little respect they have for political accountability. They demonstrated just how much they fear being questioned on the issues of the election. They showed that Hollingsworth has no problem with million-
aires buying elections. The College Republicans also cancelled a bipartisan debate event the night before it was scheduled to take place. They say they did so solely because they were unwilling to debate me. Whether this is out of aversion to political accountability or a fear of debating the issues, it is disappointing and petty. To use this as an excuse to avoid talking about the issues affecting us this election is distressing and apparently par for the course from the GOP. Ari Hoffman Bloomington
BUT THAT’S NOT MY BUSINESS
Tattooes should not be a workplace taboo One in four Americans and 40 percent of millenials have tattoos. Are you one of them? Chances are, if you’re tattooed, you have had the fear of not getting that job you need due, in part, to your expression of individuality via the ink on your skin. Thankfully, this taboo is slowly, yet surely, fading. Based off a survey on Careerbuilder.com, roughly 31 percent of hiring managers viewed having tattoos as negative. However, bad breath weighed even heavier on the survey. Some individuals were even passed up for promotion based off of darker suntans or gnawed-on fingernails. As a tattoo collector myself, I find it absolutely absurd that employers would discriminate against a person who has tattoos. Tattoos are a form of
expression, an art collection that takes place on your skin. Sure, some tattoos are more, let’s say, vulgar, than others. Having a curse word on your cheek is completely different from having a sleeve of comic book characters. I would also assume that the two individuals would lead very different lives. Tattoos should not be discriminated against and you shouldn’t be denied a job based off of how you express yourself. There are worse things you could do to show your individuality. Tattoos aren’t a negative thing to possess. When I got my first job as a sophomore in high school, I had one tattoo on my wrist. It was a medical alert braceletlike design for my Type 1 diabetes. I had no fears regarding whether or not I would get the
job based on having a tattoo. I did get that job and have gotten more as I’ve gotten older. None have had a problem with the one tattoo I have that is visible. Places of employment are technically allowed to enforce dress codes, which cover tattoos. However, more and more businesses are starting to warm up to the concept of visible body art. I hope that tattoos become more common in the workplace. People should be allowed to express themselves in a professional environment. However, I also have to agree that there should be restrictions. For example, I don’t think an elementary school teacher should have a visible tattoo with adult themes. Restrictions such as this I can agree with.

The advice I can give to someone who is contemplating getting a tattoo is this: think about it, really give it thought because it isn’t something that can be wiped away with regret. In fact, tattoos are very expensive to get removed. A $100 tattoo could very easily cost orders of magnitude more to remove . Don’t do something stupid. Whatever you do is up to you, and you get to make the final decision. Just don’t do something that you’ll regret and you should be fine. But that’s not my business. email@example.com

Over the past week the internet has been abuzz with pictures of a mustached man in a red sweater. The name of this beloved icon? Kenneth Bone. Some of you have probably been living under a sweater and are now wondering “Who is Ken Bone, and why is he so popular?” Well, the last debate was a town hall where undecided voters asked the candidates questions about their policies. Ken Bone was one of these voters. This seems fairly insignificant. So why is Bone getting all this attention? Well for one, his name sounds a lot like “Can Bone,” and sex jokes have been rampant among his fans. Second, his iconic red sweater and friendly, disarming demeanor seem to have won over many viewers. These, alongside with the craziness of this election have been contributing factors in the ascent of the now famous Ken Bone memes. In the days after the debate, Twitter, Facebook, Reddit and even 24-hour news networks were ablaze with talk about everyone’s favorite new celebrity. But last week, controversy broke. Bone answered questions on an AMA on Reddit, where thousands of fans read about their hero’s life and his joking responses to their comments. But, for some reason, rather than making a new account to answer these questions, Bone decided to use his actual Reddit account. Because of this, users were able to read into his “dark history.” Many people and news agencies have come out of the “Bone Zone,” and have criticized Bone for his comments on pornographic pictures and on the Trayvon Martin controversy. This frustrates me to no end. I’m not in love with Ken Bone by any means, but I think he’s a great meme, and I don’t like the level of scrutiny that people have put him to. Reddit history is like an incognito browsing window. Do we really want our dark-

est searches to define us? He wasn’t engaging in hate speech. He was just expressing his personal opinions, which, while quirky, weren’t harmful. But my bigger problem with this Ken Bone controversy is how it demonstrates the flaws in our news system. After a dramatic debate between two presidential candidates, the main take-away is a meme? When that happens, something is seriously wrong with our journalistic process. Understandably, this is because of how thoroughly the campaign is covered and has almost been beaten to death over the past year. But there’s so much news to be covered — international affairs, business developments, anything. And it makes sense for comedians and TV personalities to become engaged with people like Ken Bone. But when CNN had an interview with him asking about his red sweater, I started to question the validity of our entire news system. Not to mention how the Washington Post, CBS News and GQ all have stories about his Reddit history. It’s to the point where journalism is about viewership and covering connectable content, rather than things of substance. Now, I’ll be the first to admit I’m a hypocrite. I’m writing an article about Ken Bone, so I’m part of this problem. I could try to defend myself, saying that I’m an opinion columnist for a college newspaper which gives me a license that regular journalists don’t. But I don’t believe that. And neither should you. As a 21st-century society, we need to appreciate memes and news separately. And as consumers of news, we need to hold writers accountable — myself included — for covering trivialities instead of tragedies. email@example.com
Software design needs more meaning It’s rare to meet someone who doesn’t have their smartphone practically glued to their fingertips. This addiction to our phones is often touted as one of the downfalls of the millennial generation — or something equally condescending — by the generations above us. However, there are some people that should be held more accountable for this pseudo-addiction: the software developers themselves. In an interview with Tristan Harris, a former Google employee and software developer looking to reverse digital dependency, The Atlantic uncovered that many companies are not really interested in their apps increasing the value of life. Truly, software industries are often trying to get users to spend as much time on an application as possible through little tricks in the fabric of the app, such as the “triggering” red notification bubbles on Facebook. There is a lot that goes into developing software, psychologically. It should be more important for developers to use their ability to affect a user’s psyche for good instead of for evil. And by “for evil,” I mean “for almost taking away the agency of users and replacing it with the aching hunger to scroll through pictures and posts you’ve seen before.” Harris suggests a sort of Hippocratic oath for software developers, wherein they would promise to uphold a certain code of ethics to protect the psychology of users when designing applications. Software design already has a code of ethics, actually. The Association for
MAGGIE EICKHOFF is a junior in international studies.
Computing Machinery created a Code of Ethics for programmers. An underlying theme of the code is respect for public interest, which includes a “commitment to the health, safety and welfare of the public.” It seems to me that potentially brainwashing users for the sole purpose of keeping them on an application for longer may be in direct opposition to any commitment to the “welfare of the public.” Harris also advocates for a more mindful way to launch applications. Checking in on social media is second nature at this point because the apps are easily accessible to scroll and tap to at any time. By introducing features to phones and other wireless devices that would require an individual to type in to a search bar what they are looking for, users would have to confront their habits more consciously and with more keystrokes. Of course, these features aren’t things we can all create ourselves. We need programmers to work with us instead of against us. We cannot continue to perpetuate the idea that millennials are simply technology addicts who cannot control themselves. We must work with developers to create mindful and meaningful products — and hold them accountable when those principles are not upheld. @maggie_eickhoff firstname.lastname@example.org
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Although Blackmon missed all of Big Ten play in his sophomore season, he decided to enter his name into the NBA draft and participate in the combine in middle May. Due to the new rules, the IU guard was allowed to withdraw his name from the draft within 10 days after the NBA combine in order to maintain his college eligibility. IU Coach Tom Crean said the draft process was good for Blackmon and he went in with his eyes wide open and with full knowledge of where he was at from an injury standpoint. Crean said he felt his junior guard learned a lot in the process and has matured a great deal throughout his tough recovery. “He’s gotten his body better, and his vertical has gone up about six or seven inches since his surgery,” Crean said. “I was the proudest that when he came back and got into practice that he wasn’t timid. He was aggressive. He wasn’t reactionary, he was proactive in what he did and just got after it.” While he was averaging nearly 16 points per game for the second consecutive season before going down with the injury, there was still outside criticism about Blackmon’s efforts on the defensive end of the floor. Crean said Blackmon heard the negative comments coming from outside the IU

program, and he feels like it put a little chip on his junior guard’s shoulder. The Hoosiers had about 15 NBA scouts at practice last week. Crean said a highly respected scout came up to the 17-year-head coach and said Blackmon passes the ball as well as he shoots it. As much as Crean enjoyed the compliment from the scout, he added that he couldn’t wait for the day someone comes along and says Blackmon guards people as well as he shoots. Although Crean said that second statement doesn’t hold true just yet, Blackmon’s defense is improving and his head coach believes that the positive remarks are on their way. “Passing the ball as he shoots it, that to me is a way of understanding how much he’s got to utilize his teammates,” Crean said. “And that’s the key for any player. Great, middle of the road, bringing up the bottom of the bench, do they make the game easier for their teammates? And that’s what we have to work toward.” IU has emphasized heavy ball pressure on defense against opposing guards throughout this offseason. Blackmon said he and his teammates pressure one another up and down the court every day in practice and he thinks it makes the team better not only defensively but on offense as well. He also stressed that being After the preview shows Wednesday, students will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with the performers and enjoy free food.

Thompson, a writer, editor and alumni assistant, said that is what she appreciates about the show as both a former patron and a now-member of the marketing arm. “I’ve been once before, and I think basically the fact that it focuses on black genres and art forms is very different because there’s no other organization like that in Bloom-

The policy guidelines require all school records to reflect the student’s gender and name, allow students to use the facilities that match their gender identity, and grant transgender and gender nonconforming students the right to express their gender identity openly or keep it private, as well as to be addressed by the name and pronouns that correspond to their gender identity. It also protects them from administrators, faculty or staff from revealing an individual’s transgender status or gender non-conforming presentation to others unless the individual requests or consents to such disclosure. Chris Paulsen, campaign manager of Freedom Indiana, said the new policy is fully inclusive. “It’s the strongest policy in the state, actually,” Paulsen said. “It discusses both gender pronouns, name changes. It’s very strong. We’re pretty happy.” The policy went into effect July 1 and was announced last week. Fanter said Ivy Tech values and embraces diversity. He said the college follows an equal opportunity policy that explicitly prohibits employment discrimination based upon a person’s sexual orientation. Paulsen said in the release the college still has
room to grow. “We hope that they will take every step possible to ensure that no LGBT person is ever discriminated against,” Paulsen said. Fanter said the policy provides a framework for transgender individuals and campus leaders. “It builds upon Ivy Tech’s position of national leadership in higher education by signifying that our LGBTQ students and employees are of vital importance,” Fanter said. “This advances Ivy Tech’s goal of preparing Indiana residents to learn, live and work in a diverse and globally competitive environment.” He said various academic, student and human resource leadership groups endorsed the policy for review and adoption by Ivy Tech’s president’s executive council, which approved the policy at its meeting June 21. He said Ivy Tech hopes to build upon its current position of national leadership in higher education by signifying its LGBTQ students and employees are of vital importance. Paulsen said the policy about sexual orientation is good, as well as this new policy on gender identity. “We’ve seen that over 70 percent of Hoosiers think there should be full protection,” Paulsen said. “Obviously, the citizens of Indiana want this.”

McCord said employees should tell students they do not have to share additional information if they do not want to, but they have an obligation to share the information they have with a confidential victim advocate and the Office of Student Ethics. “Our job is to make sure you know about the support we are supposed to provide
for everyone,” McCord said. Fasone and McCord explained why the University refers to sexual assault issues as sexual misconduct rather than sexual assault or rape. McCord said some students have voiced the opinion that using the term sexual misconduct dismisses or minimizes the seriousness of sexual assault and rape and said the University takes feedback on these issues into account. “We’re not trying to be dismissive, but we have had people say they didn’t report because they didn’t think what happened to them was rape,” McCord said.

Another bow Cellist student Zach Barnes picks up his bow again after suffering ﬁnger nerve damage and risking his out-of-state scholarship money. By Jesse Naranjo firstname.lastname@example.org | @jesselnaranjo
Cello performance major Zach Barnes hadn’t even finished his first semester at IU when he had a tough decision to make last December. He could risk his scholarship and withdraw from all classes or stay in school and risk further muscle and tissue damage to his left hand. “See this hand? I guess there’s a central nerve that goes up through the index and middle fingers. I injured the one that goes to your thumb, which is important,” Barnes said. “I showed it to my cello professor, and he said, ‘I think you ruptured a tendon. You need to go get it fixed, or it’s going to take a long time to recover.’” While playing a performance of IU’s production of “The Nutcracker,” Barnes’ mom Susan Barnes said he said he heard a pop. “At first I wasn’t thinking about leaving school at all. It was more like ‘My hand hurts,’” Barnes said. “I was in shock because I’ve never sustained an injury from playing an instrument.” Barnes, who started playing the cello in the sixth grade, injured his left hand one year later in a go-kart accident. Although Barnes said the go-kart injury was even more serious, he didn’t have to worry — he wasn’t enrolled in one of the most prestigious music schools in the country. Barnes said the injury was most likely due to a culmination of factors. While Barnes said he was expected to practice four to eight hours per day, he also wasn’t getting enough rest. He lived in Read Center, where he said fire alarms between 2 and 6 a.m. became almost nightly for a period of time last year. He said it got to the point where he was afraid to go to sleep because he knew he might be woken up by an alarm. “I’d go a week without real sleep, and it doesn’t give your body enough time to basically be healthy,” he said. The same night of the injury, he was expected to perform a piece in front of his studio class, but when he showed up, he told the teacher he was unable to play. After the teacher poked and prodded around, Barnes said he was told he might have a torn ligament and should see a hand specialist. “He originally thought it was a torn ligament, and he said go to a hand specialist. I called hand specialists in the area and the earliest appointment time was in two weeks,” Barnes said. However, Barnes didn’t have two weeks. The academic withdraw period was soon to expire, and Barnes said he knew he had to act fast. “He called me that night,” his mom said. “I wasn’t sure how serious it was, but he was telling me the pain of it and the response from the IU clinic.” Ultimately Barnes made the decision to withdraw from his semester of classes and didn’t enroll in the spring semester. “It sucks to pay for school and not get anything out of it. I paid for a semester’s worth of tuition and housing, and I came back this year with zero credits, but my parents are very understanding,” Barnes said. “I didn’t just flunk out of school. I had a real reason to go home.” His parents took him to a clinic at home in Atlanta, where Susan Barnes said the orthopedic specialist informed them

the injury would not require surgery, just time to heal. “This young man presents to see us today with a recent history of volar radial left wrist pain and some tingling in the radial aspect of the palm and the thenar eminence area. He is on a music scholarship at Indiana University,” the orthopedist’s note read. While Susan Barnes said Barnes planned to return to IU in the fall, they received an
email saying his scholarships had been revoked because he hadn’t made adequate yearly progress. Since he is an out-ofstate student, his mother said he probably would not come back to IU. “I don’t want to say depressed, but I was a little more apathetic towards stuff because I wanted to pursue my dreams,” Barnes said. “I want to play for the symphony, and eventually I want to teach
music.” But two days before the semester started, Barnes received a message from his IU instructor. His scholarships had been reinstated and the instructor was eager to have him back as a student. Now Barnes is back to work on his cello performance degree, and said he feels he has come a long way given his lost time. While this is technically his second year at IU, he is con-
sidered a freshman student. In years to come, Barnes said he wants to eventually play in a symphony and teach music. He said his private cello instructor in Atlanta plays for the Atlanta symphony and also teaches about 30 full-time students. Barnes said this would be an ideal situation for him in the future. “Of course, I’ve got tons of stuff to do,” he said. “I just need to develop myself as an artist.”

THE FAULDS IN OUR STARS
Bob Dylan ignores unexpected but deserved Nobel Prize in Literature win The biggest musical voice of the 1960s, Bob Dylan, has finally been properly recognized for his legendarily influential songwriting. On Thursday, the singer was awarded a Nobel Prize in Literature, considered by many to be the highest annual literary award. However, it appears Dylan couldn’t be any less impressed. Six days after receiving the prize, he still hasn’t publicly acknowledged the award. The distributor of the Nobel Prizes, the Swedish Academy, has given up trying to contact Dylan after numerous ignored emails and phone calls. Whether or not Dylan will show up to the Dec. 10 awards ceremony is still a mystery. Given Dylan’s history with reclusiveness and introversion, this reaction — or lack thereof — comes as no surprise to any of his fans. Either he really doesn’t want this award, he has virtually no interest in making a speech or both. The Swedish Academy has been known for giving out oddball awards in the past. For example, none of us understand why President Obama and Al Gore have won peace prizes. Most of the literature prizes are given to incredibly obscure writers very few people in the United States may know about. In fact, the most recent winner, besides Dylan, I actually recognize is Samuel Beckett in 1969. I’m sure I’m not the only one either, yet it appears almost everyone is up in arms
about this win, especially the younger generation that didn’t grow up with Dylan’s music. I’m sure if it were just some other Slavic or French name on the list in lieu of Dylan, very few would have an opinion on it. For some reason there has always been this preconceived idea among readers that songwriting is not considered literature. I still have difficulty wrapping my head around this prospect. If it’s because lyrics are meant to be heard and not read, shouldn’t the same argument be made for plays? No one, especially Shakespeareans, questions the literary merit of playwriting. Dylan has more than enough merit on his part too. His first major singles, “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The Times They Are A Changin’,” were revered in their time as anthems to the American Civil Rights and anti-Vietnam war movements. He wrote those as a man in his early twenties. His precision and artistry only grew from there. “I try my best / To be just like I am / But everybody wants you / To be just like them,” Dylan said in “Maggie’s Farm.” “Every man’s conscience is vile and depraved / You cannot depend on it to be your guide / When it’s you who must keep it satisfied,” he said in “The Man in the Long Black Coat.” “Don’t go mistaking paradise for that home across the road,” he said in “The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest.”
Austin Faulds is a sophomore in journalism.
Of course, there is always this line from “Like a Rolling Stone,” one of the greatest songs of all time: “You used to laugh about / Everybody that was hanging out / Now you don’t talk so loud / Now you don’t seem so proud / About having to be scrounging for your next meal.” There are several more songs like “Desolation Row,” “Ballad of a Thin Man” and “Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again” that are simply too grandiose and epic to select certain lyrics. I dare you to try to say Nobel winners like William Faulkner, Mark Twain and John Steinbeck wouldn’t be impressed with such poetry. All of these writers explored the same themes of corruption, poverty and human cruelty in their writing as Dylan did. They would have understood one another. I understand the appeal of trying to introduce readers to new and prolific writers, but perhaps with all the negativity in 2016, a positive change should be made by the Swedish Academy. Perhaps this groundbreaking win could open the possibilities of screenwriters and playwrights to be more recognized in the future. A redefinition of our concept of art and literature is definitely in order. Indeed, the times really are a changin’.

Jazz musicians to start Midwest tour at Player’s Pub From IDS reports
“Musical Wonder-Twins” jazz musicians Debbie Davis and Josh Paxton will kick off their tour of Midwest and Mid-Atlantic states at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Player’s
Pub in Bloomington, according to a press release. The two New Orleans residents have played together for almost 20 years in the United States as well as in Switzerland, Italy and France. Davis, a member
of the vocal trio The Pfister Sisters, has performed with with John Boutte, Soul Asylum, The Misfits, Dukes of Dixieland and Leigh “Lil Queenie” Harris, according to the release. Harris introduced Davis
to Paxton, who has played with Harris, The Pfister Sisters, Maria Muldaur, Bruce Hornsby, the Afghan Whigs and The Wild Tchopitoulas. He studied under jazz pianist Ellis Marsalis Jr., and his transcriptions of piano
repertoire have become standard reference tools for pianists, according to the release. Davis and Paxton, with a shared love of Duke Ellington, Jellyroll Morton, Stevie Wonder and Randy New-
man, will be traveling on to Kentucky; Virginia; Washington, D.C.; West Virginia; and Louisiana after their stop in Indiana, according to the tour’s calendar. Maia Rabenold

Bryant looks to improve on freshman year By Andrew Hussey firstname.lastname@example.org @thehussnetwork
Thomas Bryant prayed. The sophomore center prepared to make the biggest decision of his life. His two options: return to IU for another season, or enter the NBA Draft. After careful consideration, he chose to come back to Bloomington. “I knew I needed to return for my sophomore year before I even finished the season,” Bryant said. “I thought that would go better for me as a player for the long term because I want to be ready if I want to make that jump to the next level.” He didn’t make the decision alone. He talked with his parents and the IU coaching staff about the right course of action. IU Coach Tom Crean was right there for Bryant as he figured out what his next step was. “When it comes to running your own race, Thomas is a great example because he had to do exactly what was absolutely going to be the best for his long-term career,” Crean said. “He made a longterm decision.” What IU gets back is a player who averaged 11.9 points per game to go along

with 5.8 rebounds per game last season. He was efficient around the rim, finishing fifth in the nation and first in the Big Ten as he scored just on 68.3 percent of his two-point attempts. However, that efficiency wasn’t always there. “It started in practice,” Bryant said. “Just being an aggressive team in practice, just playing aggressive and not
calling as many fouls. Going up strong to finish. That’s what really started it off because we all weren’t too aggressive at first, so we needed to get more aggressive getting to the basket and finishing as well.” Blossoming late in the season, his 19 points helped IU upset Kentucky in the Round of 32. But he knew he still had things to work on. “He’s a very honest person
in what he needs to get better at,” Crean said. “He understands how far he’s come. But I think he’s one of those rare kids that really, really gets how much better he can get.” Focused on the little things, Bryant worked on conditioning and strengthening his lower body, aspects of his game that could pay off down the road. Crean said Bryant’s squat has gone up 200 pounds
since he arrived at IU. Another area he worked on the most this offseason was his lateral movement. He spent hours on footwork drills such as speed ladders and speed steps to help him be able to move his feet quicker. He knew it was something that needed improvement. “I saw it in myself as it was something that I needed to work as much as Coach Crean
saw it,” Bryant said. “As soon as we saw that the problem was there, we tried to fix it right then and there.” After an offseason of work, his teammates are already noticing improvements. “I think he’s definitely improved as far as his lateral movement,” junior guard Rob Johnson said. “I think the biggest aspect where you see that is when he guards the ball screens. I think he does a way better job of getting out there and getting low on his hedges and not letting the guard turn the corner.” That improvement will help him and the Hoosiers this season, and while Bryant’s NBA future looms large, Crean’s vision for the sophomore follows the narrative of other big men like Cody Zeller and Noah Vonleh who have come through Bloomington during Crean’s tenure. “The other times he was kind of in the mode with everybody else where he was working on his shooting, working on the ball handling, working on the pick-and-roll and working on coming off screens,” Crean said. “It was just completely training him like a guard which we did with Cody and we did with Noah and like we want to do with him.”
Tom Crean is actually pretty good

Junior quarterback Zander Diamont sprints through the Nebraska defense Oct. 15 in Memorial Stadium. Diamont has played many roles throughout his football career.
Diamont brings different element to IU’s offense By Taylor Lehman email@example.com @TaylorRLehman
Kevin Johns, IU offensive coordinator
Diamont had played many roles throughout his career, but a platoon quarterback is a new one. He served as the starting quarterback when former Hoosier Nate Sudfeld went down with injuries in 2014 and 2015, and when IU is preparing for dual-threat quarterbacks, Diamont leads the scout team offense against the No. 1 defense. He nearly led IU against top-ranked Ohio State teams in consecutive seasons and was explicitly named player of the game in 2015’s match-

adversities he’s faced with,” Victor Oladipo said in a video with USA Today regarding Crean after off-court troubles plagued IU in 2014. “But he’s going to be fine. It’s all about winning basketball games, and he’s a great coach and he’s going to get them to do that.” “He never gave up on us,” Yogi Ferrell said about Crean after clinching the Big Ten last season. “He kept believing.” This past week, Crean, the Hoosiers and quite a few journalists who complained about the airfare and types of pretzels in economy made their way to Washington D.C. for Big Ten Basketball Media Day. Crean talked, as he is wont to do, but never about himSEE CREAN, PAGE 11
“Zander has a skillset that Rich doesn’t have and can bring some things to the table. I don’t know if that’s a full-time thing — maybe some situational things during the game.”
up against the Buckeyes with a 79-yard touchdown run. Diamont also scored the game-winning touchdown to beat Purdue in the season finale in 2014 in a game that set the tone for the 2015 season. His fingerprints have been all over IU’s recent success, and Wilson, the coaching staff and his teammates aren’t afraid to express their confidence in the backup quarterback. He’s not a wildcat quarterback, and IU doesn’t plan to use him that way, Wilson said. He’s a quarterback with an improved arm that can run as well. Senior receiver Mitchell Paige advocated for Diamont all offseason and said — along with his coaches — the junior had had the best offseason of his career and that his arm is better than ever. He’s a little spark plug, Paige said. That’s how the Hoosiers plan to use him. “Ever since he’s gotten here, he’s been a vocal kid. He’s a natural leader,” Paige said after the Nebraska loss. “There’s no drop off when he comes in like, ‘Oh, no, Zander’s in.’ It’s more like, ‘Zander’s in. Let’s go to work with him, too.’” Wilson said after the Nebraska loss an official approached him during the game and said Diamont was scolding IU senior center Wes Rogers for a mistake the senior had made. Wilson said that it showed great leadership. When asked about it, Diamont downplayed the leadership. “I actually told him the ref made him mess up,” Diamont said laughing.
Tom Crean is a conundrum. With Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller at the helm, the Hoosiers couldn’t get past a 2-3 zone in the Sweet Sixteen. Last year, with a bunch of freshmen and unknowns in the rotation, the Hoosiers won the Big Ten and upset Kentucky in the tournament. Both teams lost in the Sweet Sixteen, but one was a “failure” and the other was a “success.” Judging coaches is difficult. As you know and my high school basketball coach liked to remind me, coaches don’t play, they coach. Usually, the blame goes to the man in charge, while the glory goes to the players. This is fine, but it’s also outdated. Let’s move away from the message boards and social media for a second. Perhaps the best people to ask about Tom Crean are the players playing under him. “I’m faced with the same
There’s always one name that IU fans cry out when passes aren’t completed. It happened when junior quarterback Richard Lagow threw five interceptions in IU’s loss to Wake Forest. It happened when the Hoosiers took the field the next week against Michigan State. That name is Zander Diamont. The junior quarterback saw his first action of the season Saturday against the then-No. 10 Nebraska Cornhuskers. “Zander has a skillset that Rich doesn’t have and can bring some things to the table,” IU offensive coordinator Kevin Johns said. “I don’t know if that’s a fulltime thing — maybe some situational things during the game.” The Hoosiers were down 17-2 to the Cornhuskers when Diamont found his way onto the field Saturday. Four drives had ended without points for IU — turnover on downs, interception, punt, punt. Junior safety Chase Dutra had just blocked a punt for a safety, and IU had a 3rd-and-2 on the Nebraska 40-yard line. If IU didn’t score points on this drive, the game could get out of hand. The Hoosiers needed a spark. Diamont sprinted onto the field as Lagow trotted off, and Memorial Stadium immediately began to cheer at the sight of No. 12 behind center. He caught the snap, faked the handoff to junior running back Devine Redding and took the ball around the left side for nine yards and
a first down. IU would get a field goal to cap the drive and keep Nebraska within reach. The junior ran the ball eight times for 31 yards as the Hoosiers tried to open up the run game. The strategy had minimal effect, though. Other than a 33-yard touchdown run from Redding, the Hoosiers recorded 55 rushing yards — Diamont had 31 of them. “To us, there’s not really a balance. It’s more how to win the game,” Johns said. “Whatever it takes. We’re going to play whoever it takes to win games.”
The first time I saw Tom Crean, I didn’t recognize him. I was walking to Assembly Hall with my parents during my first visit to IU. Strolling through the parking lot, a figure appeared out of Cook Hall. My dad identified him immediately. I, on the other hand, thought he was joking. A quick Google search told me I was in the wrong. The man just ahead of us was Tom Crean. I was 0-for1 on recognizing perhaps the most famous person in Bloomington. The reason I bring this story up is twofold. First, it’s a funny story and I would like you to have a chuckle while reading my columns. Second, over the four years that I have been at IU, I have been through a lot with Tom Crean. I respected his recruiting, I critiqued his play calling and I made fun of his odd sideline glances.

SWIMMING AND DIVING
Field hockey, men’s soccer teams have postseason potential their work, making the jump to 4-3 on Senior Day on Friday shouldn’t be a problem. Before the Hoosiers close the regular season in Syracuse, New York, they’ll have to face off with the No. 6 Penn State Nittany Lions, who are 12-2 overall and 4-2 in the Big Ten. The Lions ended the Hoosiers’ run in the Big Ten Tournament last year after IU posted a 5-3 conference record during a comeback season. IU will have to overcome whatever effect last season’s matchup had on them to get themselves in the proper mindset to face No. 3 Syracuse in its regular season finale. The only difference is this season, they faced a tougher schedule of eight ranked teams, compared to last year’s seven, and still have two to go.
Well, we’re a little more than halfway through the semester. Lord help us. But for fall sports, with the exception of football, it’s almost postseason time. Some sports, though, are in better positions than others heading into the end of the season. Here’s whom you should still be keeping an eye on. Field Hockey I’ve written it pretty much monthly this semester, but the field hockey team is on the rise and is really coming together. With three games left — two of which are Big Ten games — the Hoosiers have some breathing room heading into the tournament. First up are the Ohio State Buckeyes. We’ve finally found a sport in which the Buckeyes come in at 0-6 on the conference level and 5-10 overall. The Hoosiers sit at 3-3 in the conference right now, so assuming they keep up

then, though, the Hoosiers have had two wins and a draw and have three games remaining against Wisconsin, St. Louis and Michigan State. Wisconsin is slightly behind IU in the standings with a 3-2-1 conference record, but those three overall losses stand out compared to IU’s one against what was a top-2 team in the nation. Then come the No. 20 Spartans. Their record is slightly more impressive than the Badgers’, but the Hoosiers still have them beat in the Big Ten and national standings. So regardless of those three games’ outcomes, the Hoosiers are ready going into the Big Ten and NCAA Tournaments. They’re not done yet. email@example.com @jzegss cares about the people who play for him and is doing his best to ensure that they’re at least a bit better at the end of the season than they are at the beginning.

High expectations for women’s swim team By Ben Portnoy email@example.com @bportnoy15
IU senior diver Jessica Parratto has high expectations for the women’s swimming and diving team this season. The Hoosiers, who finished last season ranked twelfth in the final CSCAA Coaches Poll and second in the Big Ten, are going to rely on a mix of new and old from last year’s squad. The returners include Parratto and senior Brooklynn Snodgrass, both of whom took last season off to train for the 2016 Olympics. Parratto will also be tasked with a new challenge, shifting from a focus in platform diving, in which she competed cables could get crossed. Don’t jump to conclusions. A friend or relation provides keen insight. Slow down around confusion.
