Daily scoop Sports:

ISU track garners 25 spots for regional competition Between the men’s and women’s track and field programs, the Cyclones have 25 athletes competing at the NCAA West Regional meet from May 24 to 26. The qualifiers were almost perfectly distributed between the two squads with 12 athletes qualifying from the women’s side and 11 from the men’s.

Albert Gary receives probation for robbery ISU wide receiver Albert Gary was sentenced May 21 to three years probation with time in a halfway house. Gary was originally charged Nov. 15 with first-degree robbery, a class B felony, after ISU Police responded to a call from a man claiming to have been robbed at gunpoint on Central Campus on June 19. Gary came to a plea agreement on a lesser charge. The ISU athletic department had no comment until Gary goes through the university judicial process.

Wistey qualifies for U.S. Olympic Trials ISU swimmer Imelda Wistey qualified for the U.S. Olympic Trials on May 20. In the first 100 meters of her 200-meter breaststroke race, Wistey swam a 1:11.74, just under the Olympic standard time of 1:12.19. Wistey’s coach Duane Sorenson said he was happy for the his swimmer and that the qualifying time was a breakthrough for Wistey.

ISU announces new dean of students Iowa State announced May 17 that Pamela Anthony will be the new dean of students. Anthony currently serves as the assistant dean of students at Georgia State University in Atlanta, where she has served since 2003. Prior to that, she served as director of student activities at Atlanta’s Spelman College. She has also worked at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. Anthony will assume her new position at Iowa State on Aug. 1.

Financial literacy comes under review A recent study shows that 9 percent of ISU students are not aware of how much debt they are in. Gregory Forbes, research analyst for the student financial aid office, called these statistics “unsettling.” He went on to say that 13 percent of students surveyed did not know that they have debt, while 43 percent underestimated how much they owed. The study found that the more financial responsibility a student had, the more likely they were to be aware of their debt.

One-on-one with Seneca Wallace By Alex.Halsted Seneca Wallace is currently an NFL quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. The former Cyclone has been in the NFL for nine years, being drafted in 2003 by the Seattle Seahawks after spending two seasons at Iowa State. In a 2002 game, Wallace became famous for a play known as “The Run,” where he scored a 12-yard touchdown after zigzagging around the field for some 130 yards.

People still talk about the play today, so it seems like a good place to begin. Could you take me through “The Run” as you remember it? It was a three-step drop, and I had Lane Danielson out to my left. I dropped back, and a defender, the defensive end, jumped up and tried to bat the ball down. So I pumped and got him to jump, but the timing of the play was off as soon as that happened. After that, I was in makea-play mode and dropped back, pumped, scrambled back out and kind of back-peddled a little bit and ended up running back about 15 yards. Once I got to the sideline and turned it up, I almost thought I was going to run out of bounds. I said: “Well maybe I should run out of bounds and

save the play.” It was kind of weird because it felt like the Texas Tech defenders kind of stopped. Once they slowed down thinking I was running out of bounds, I had a shot to dart and hit the sideline. Once I did that, I got a great block on the sideline and got another one from Mike Wagner. So once I got the block and cut it across the field it was pretty much just trying to make a play and get in the end zone.

Normally you get a guy to run 100-something yards, he’s going to be exhausted, a little winded. There was so much excitement in the stadium that day — I had a lot of friends and family at the game — it was just a big moment for us at Iowa State.

Estimates vary on how many yards you ran total — between 120 and 135 yards — what did it feel like after the play?

(Laughs) No, no, not at all. I’m just glad to be a part of something like that and bring so much attention to Iowa State. The fans love it and are still talking about it — that’s what a lot of us athletes play the sport for. It’s about the memories, and when you have memories like that, that people still hold on to, it makes you feel good because a lot of people respect what you did, and you bring a lot of excitement to people’s Saturday.

The funny part about it was I was on so much adrenaline; it wasn’t like I was even tired after the play.

Did you know at that point that the play would be as big as it is today?

Outside of that play, what would you say would be your greatest memory in your time at Iowa State? I had so many. The two years went by so fast, but we had a lot of fun, and there was so much excitement. From beating Nebraska for the first time in 37 years at home and the fans tearing down the goalposts and rushing the field; to going to Iowa and being down at halftime 24 to 6 or whatever it was and coming back and beating them and pretty much messing up their National Championship hope; and playing in the Eddie Robinson Kickoff Classic against Florida State. There were so many memories, and it was so much fun being apart of it. We went to two bowl games while I was there — unfortunately we lost both of them. … I wish we could have won the one against Alabama in the Independence Bowl. It’s kind of hard to put my finger on one, but me being able to beat Iowa twice and pretty much mess up their National Championship hopes, I think that’s one of the big ones.

In your NFL career, you’ve kind of turned into a veteran. What have you enjoyed most during your time in the league? Just learning. Everyday is different, everyday is a grind, and the season is a grind. I think the biggest thing is you take the things you

learned from guys that came before you, and you find as the years go on that you start doing those things to the younger guys. I’m truly blessed to be doing this as long as I’ve been doing it. There are a lot of great memories that come along with it, and one of the biggest ones is going to the Super Bowl and playing against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Football occupies quite a bit of your time during the year, but what do you enjoy doing during the off-season? Just hanging out with the family. You have to take advantage of your time off because it’s a grind, like I said, going through the season. Being around the family and being able to relax and spend time with them is really important. You try to recoup from the season because a lot of things transpire during that time, so being able to be around the family and decompress and forget about the stuff that happened during the season [helps] move forward and look to the next year.

One thing that you’ve spent a lot of time with in recent years is your foundation, Joyce’s Angels. Could you talk about what that means to you? It means a lot. My mom died of cancer about five years ago; she had multiple myeloma. I did a thing here in Cleveland a couple weeks ago where — my mom’s favorite thing that she loved to bake any holiday, Christmas or anything, and all of us kids loved it a lot, was a rum cake. What I did in honor of her death was I started baking a rum cake every holiday or if it’s her birthday or something like that. So a couple weeks ago in Cleveland I did a little deal with a cupcake place here in Cleveland that just opened up. I was pretty much turning her cake into a cupcake, which had never been done and a lot of people had never had a rum cupcake before. All the proceeds went back to my foundation to help raise awareness for multiple myeloma. It turned out well; we sold 350 cupcakes the first day and turned around the next day and sold another 200-something — and they’re still selling them, she’s keeping them in the store right now.

ISD road trip: Amana Colonies Venture back into history and heritage

The Chocolate Haus — Dessert and Coffee Café

By Frances.Myers Driving into the Amana Colonies, you might do a double take. The streets, the walkways and the buildings all seemingly transport you into a whole other world, a world filled with so much history, you nearly forget you are living in 2012. For this week’s road trip, the Daily decided the Amana Colonies would be an interesting place to visit, full of culture, history and interesting craft shops, not to mention great food. The buildings are all made of historic brick, stone and clapboard. The gardens are alive with vibrant colors. The community is completely reflective of its heritage, that of the German Pietists who originally settled it. The Amana Colonies have been a national historic landmark since 1965 and are also one of America’s longest-lived communal societies. The word “Amana” comes from the biblical Song of Solomon 4:8. It means to “remain true.” For our first stop in the Amana Colonies, we stopped for breakfast at the Ox Yoke Inn, a quiet restaurant “World famous for American and German food served ‘Family Style.’” With quick service and friendly staff, it was a very nice contrast to the typically small breakfast of a college student. Next we wandered down the street looking at small shops. We came to the Village Store and decided to take a look around. We sampled some delicious fudge and looked at some of the trinkets the store had to offer. Walking back down the

street, our attention was diverted to a store called “The Chocolate Haus — Dessert and Coffee Café.” With so much candy and chocolate, we couldn’t help but feel like little kids again. The store boasted “gourmet hand-dipped chocolates, cheesecakes, truffles, sugar-free chocolates, ice cream, kids frappes, espresso, gourmet coffee and

smoothies.” After purchasing a few choice goodies, we decided it was time for a change of pace. Driving around, we came upon — what could be better? — a brewery. Turns out, it was Millstream Brewing Company, Iowa’s “Oldest and Most Award Winning Craft Brewery.” Millstream was founded in 1985.

Iowa State’s legacy stands academic now, but forever?

The Ames Lab’s recent marking of its 65th anniversary reminds us of Iowa State’s multitude of contributions to the world beyond campus. Over the years, the Ames Lab contributed to uranium enrichment for the Manhattan Project, high-performance computer research, organic polymers and other scientific innovations. Those contributions are in line with Iowa State being a land-grant university. When he visited the Daily earlier this year, President Steven Leath defined land-grant universities in terms of what distinguishes them from other universities: their public responsibility. With changes in university administration, from Leath to his new senior vice president and provost, dean of students, registrar and others, the new administration will be faced with making decisions that will put Iowa State on some new path or continue pressing in its existing direction. We will be interested to see, as the university’s model becomes increasingly a business, rather than academic, model, whether we will still be celebrating the same legacy in another 65 years.

Learn beyond math, science


s the American education standards in comparison to the rest of the developed world continue to go downhill, a megaphone has been hoisted belching some noise to the effect that more attention needs to be devoted to math and sciences. And by that, they mean hard sciences. To that effect, there is an interesting advertisement by Exxon Oil currently running on television with a lamentation that corporate America and other stakeholders could help rope in the magic necessary to increase scores among young learners. Currently, the United States is ranked 23rd among developed countries in scores in math and science among young learners. There is an underlying assumption that all that is amiss with the dwindling education standards has everything to do with the decay in the teaching of math and sciences. There is also the strait-jacket conventional wisdom that the central pillar of a sound education is math and sciences. In other words, liberal education is secondary top education. But what has math and science got to do with a progressive education system? Are we mourning the death of a promising scholarship or merely the decline in the ability of learners to memorize theories and numbers? Wouldn’t the basis of a strong educated society be the ability of people to engage one another in continual discourse? And, in-all-fairness, why aren’t we asking ourselves why we became so dependent as a people and how we could wean ourselves off of that dependence? Without coming off as a wimp or a defender of liberal arts, I find the obsession with math and sciences a perilous path toward putting American education standards back on the lead. People who propose we pay close attention to the teaching of math and science are not giving reasons why and how the standards declined so fast over the years. Most of the industry leaders, including President Barack Obama, somehow believe that once we fix the problem with numbers and scientific theories, then we shall have found cure to our education problem. Overemphasis in math and science is wrongheaded. I believe the problems with education largely stem from the society than from within a learning system or specific areas of instruction. The crisis that gripped the entire American society within its politics, economy and even morality has a spill-over effect that has engulfed a once sterling education system, the shining star that was the storied American education system — a global envy, was largely on the curiosity it imparts on learners. That the current generation of Americans lacks the oomph of scholarship and a curiosity thirsting for more knowledge details just how liberal grounding is the missing link. What the American education system needs now than ever is a renewed commitment to the country’s history. A deeper emphasis in the liberal consciousness that dovetails this great country’s history and models of inquiry would catapult into droves of new breakthroughs to address the kind of deficit that we think only math and sciences would answer. Americans invented by questioning — citizens’ ability to engage, to test knowledge to share and to size up albeit without mischief their various levels of understanding. This country has risen up to the occasion when reminded of its storied history. America rises up to occasion when confronted with the reality of her past. This country has a duty to

By Benson.Amollo subject young learners to the idea of America and what loyalty to her greatness can do. There’s a higher need to bring young Americans to understand that there once was an American where hard work was rewarded; Abraham Lincoln’s America saw civility pave the way for great invention. There is a higher need to instill in young citizens of America that when they sit in a classroom to learn, a whole country is relying on their pursuit of that knowledge. This is the message we have missed, and it is what will inspire rosy numbers in scores in those “coveted” areas in math and science. It is pointless to insist that we invest in math and science

If we can flip the pages backwards and arrive at a place in this country’s history where the moral chord was held sacrosanct, then that is what we must teach most Americans. It is the history, the American story of resilience and opportunity that inspires greatness.

>>TANNING.p6 an accident. These overindulgences quickly become a problem, disease or addiction in the critical eye of society. The most recent of these social concerns is that tanning in electric beds, particularly among women, is becoming excessive and out of control. It has been labeled as a disease and given the name “tanorexia.” The concern of excessive tanning grew from a news story about a mother who allegedly allowed her five year old daughter to tan. The rumor was never proven to be true, but the appearance of the mother herself was what sparked the concern with tanning. The woman, quite frankly, looked like a piece of leather. She had an unnatural orange completion, wrinkled skin and dark spots all around her arms and face. It was clear that she has put herself in a tanning bed way too many times. Speaking as one out of the millions of young women throughout America that do choose to tan, that crazy leather woman is not allowed to speak for all of us. I choose to tan for multiple reasons, and none of those reasons is to look like an Oompa Loompa. The first is it’s relaxing. Many people that judge those who do tan have never been in a tanning bed. It’s warm and quiet and has the uncanny ability to lull a person to sleep. Another reason is because society tells me, and every other girl, tan is attractive. Now, I don’t mean to sound like a materialistic chick, but I tan so I can fit in and feel good about myself. Let’s be honest, the media has a huge influence on what people do. Whether it’s the clothes they buy, how they chose to style their hair or what color they try to turn their skin. Most will scoff when someone says they make a life choice just to fit in, but the truth is everyone tries in some way or another, and I, along with many others, feel more attractive and comfortable in society with a tan.

The “too much of a good thing” wisdom applies to more than just indulging in candy. Overindulgences quickly become a disease or addiction in the critical eye of society. So now that we’re being honest, it’s time to set the record straight: Yes, people tan to fit in, to fall into what society deems as attractive or normal, but most of us also understand that too much tanning can lead to unfortunate outcomes. I will not go to extreme measures in the tanning bed, and I’m sure most other tanning happy girls agree. Of course there are legitimate concerns with tanning, the main one being that it creates a higher chance of skin cancer. But I can also get cancer from my cellphone, the natural sun outside and too much McDonalds, and millions of people are exposed to each of those things on a daily basis. The moral of the story here is tanning, just like Halloween candy, can be enjoyed in moderation. Just because someone has a membership to a tanning salon does not mean that they are going to look like a piece of leather by the time they are 30. The mother mentioned above was, sadly, never taught that too much of a good thing can lead to a devastating outcome, thus she should not be allowed to be the poster child for the effects of tanning. Becoming bronze from an electric bed is nothing to be ashamed of and is in no way, shape or form a disease consuming those who choose to enter a tanning salon.

Summer of a lifetime

McCoy readies for Canada, marriage By Alex.Halsted For as long as he can remember, he has been aiming for the fairways and hitting long putts. After all, Nate McCoy has been golfing all his life. “I remember him pretty vividly swinging his little clubs in the backyard,” said Nate’s father, Mike McCoy. “Hitting shots around the backyard.” Right from the start, Nate gravitated toward golf. It was no coincidence his father Mike is a 10-time Iowa Player of the Year in the sport. “Ever since I was crawling on the ground my dad had me around the game,” Nate said. “I was born into golf, and as soon as I could stand and hold a club, that’s when I started trying to hit the ball.” Mike said his son’s swing came to him naturally, adding that his primary role was making sure Nate had the right equipment in his hands. “I took him to the golf course and the driving range, and he hit balls in the backyard,” Mike said. “All I did was kind of encourage him — he didn’t need a lot of coaching, just a lot of encouragement to keep swinging.” Around the age of six Nate took to the course competitively, and he has been golfing ever since. Now a senior at Iowa State, McCoy has reached his final collegiate tournament, and it comes in the midst of a new chapter in his life.

Reaching for the NCAA Championships

Photo courtesy of ISU Athletics ISU men’s golf senior Nate McCoy qualified for the NCAA Championships from May 29 to June 3, beating his opponent by one stroke to earn the lone wild card spot. McCoy, with his stroke avergae of 71.60 for the 2011-12 season, is on pace to break the ISU record of 71.66.

Standing on his final hole at the NCAA Regionals in Bowling Green, Ky., on May 19, McCoy came to the realization his Cyclone career could be down to its final shots.

“I told myself, ‘Alright, you’ve got one hole left in your college career maybe, so let’s go out here and just hit a great shot,’” McCoy said. “I hit a really good shot; I felt like my best shot in college at the time.” With one lone individual wild card spot available for a spot at the NCAA Championships, McCoy faced off against Ethan Tracy of Arkansas as the third and final round of the weekend neared the end. McCoy swung his club and watched as the ball soared through the air. A par-4 hole, some 453-feet away, McCoy hit the fairway. His second shot landed on the green. With 6 feet remaining, the senior sunk his putt to finish with a birdie. With his day over, McCoy waited for Tracy to finish. After the Razorback missed a putt on his final hole, McCoy advanced to the NCAA Championships. “It’s really awesome to know I made it there and now I have one shot left to try and complete that goal of winning the NCAAs,” McCoy said. “It’s awesome knowing it came down to that last hole, that last putt.” McCoy, ranked No. 45 in the country by Golfweek, is the first Cyclone to advance to the NCAA Championships since Clay Davis in 1980. ISU men’s golf coach Andrew Tank said McCoy will go down as one of the best Cyclone golfers for more than one reason. “He’s certainly going to go down as one of the best players in the program’s history,” Tank said. “He’s done a lot to put our program on the map — it’s not just because he shoots low scores. It’s because the way he interacts and treats people.”

A professional career after college In early May, McCoy went to Canada for Q-school, a qualifying tournament for the Canadian Tour.

>>MCCOY.p9 Out of 156 golfers, only the top 30 would receive a full exemption for the 2012 season. Finishing with a four-round total of 285, McCoy finished the weekend at 3-under, tied for fifth overall. “I didn’t really treat it any differently than any other event. It’s just pro golf, so you just have to hit fairways and greens and try and make putts,” McCoy said. “The level of play was a little higher, but you still just treat it the same way.” Tank said he was impressed with how focused McCoy remained on his collegiate career. “He stayed really in the present with his college golf,” Tank said. “A lot of times it can be a distraction for a senior — to start thinking ahead and thinking about the next chapter — but Nate has really just focused on getting better and playing well.”

Moving on to the next chapter When the NCAA Championships come to an end, McCoy will head for Canada and the golf it has to offer. The next chapter in McCoy’s life has something else to offer too.

On June 16, McCoy will get married to former ISU soccer goalkeeper, Ashley Costanzo, making for a busy summer. “I think it’s going to be a great, fun transition. I’m really looking forward to turning pro, but I’m also really looking forward to getting married,” Nate said. “I think both of those things together will probably make it one of the most enjoyable times of my life.” Growing up, Nate’s and Ashley’s parents’ homes were only 1.2 miles apart in West Des Moines. But the two never met until they were both athletes at Iowa State Ashley, a five-sport athlete growing up, never had much interest in golf. “I have never been interested in golf until I fell in love with a golfer,” Costanzo said. “Golf was kind of the thing that if I wanted to watch on television, I could watch for five minutes, and then I couldn’t anymore.” The marriage will now take Ashley to the golf course too, as she becomes Nate’s caddy for the summer tour. “I trust her out there; I wouldn’t really want anyone else out there caddying for me,” McCoy said. “I’m pretty excited to have her out there, and she’s pretty excited to caddy because we get to travel around Canada. “It’s going to be like our summer-long honeymoon.”

Onward through an Odyssey

Photo: Liz Zabel/Iowa State Daily A team from New York watches a presentation in glowing Statue of Liberty hats. Odyssey of the Mind had its opening ceremony Wednesday night in Hilton Coliseum.

By Thaddeus.Mast For many students ranging from kindergarten to college, Odyssey of the Mind is a great opportunity to stretch their creativity to the limit while also meeting others from around the world. This year, the World Finals for the problem solving competition will be at Iowa State

from May 23 to May 26. While an outside events company is supplying most of the event coordinators and workers, some students have taken up the Student Job Posting’s position to help out as well. They will be setting up before and tearing down after the events for this competition, which is back in Ames for the seventh time to hold the World Finals.

“Iowa State has been doing this since 1990,” said Alan Strohmaier, associate director of Iowa’s Odyssey of the Minds. “The last time the World Final was held here was 2009.” The World Final will bring around 15,000 to 17,000 people to Ames and the surrounding areas. Every dorm room available has been rented out for the 815 teams competing. Fifteen countries will be rep-

resented at this year’s final, out of the 27 countries that currently have active Odyssey of the Mind programs. There are shuttles going from airports within a 300 mile radius, including Omaha, Minneapolis and Kansas City, Mo., to Ames to accommodate the teams. “It’s a big logistics nightmare,” Strohmaier said. Iowa State, however, is one of the few places that can han-

dle this kind of event. “I don’t care where we go or where we do finals, everyone says ‘I love Iowa State, when can we go back?’” Strohmaier said. “People in Iowa are just warm and welcoming. Here they treat the people who participate like they are people, and they are friendly towards them. Very few universities can hold Odyssey of the Mind.” Odyssey of the Mind is

“the premier problem solving competition of the world,” as Strohmaier said. The World Finals is the culmination of a year’s worth of work put into a single problem, ranging from building a vehicle that shows emotions or a structure made of balsa wood that can hold hundreds of pounds to putting on a unique version of play or

>>ODYSSEY.p14 making a musical version of Hamlet. Strohmaier, working with the organization since 1987, tells of some of the more interesting devices made to solve the problems presented. “I have seen vehicles that have been made entirely of Coke cans. Vacuums have been made into robots with computer screens on them. One of the judges here this year currently holds the world record for the structure problem, holding over 1,400 pounds.” Tracy Hoekstra, coach of the Johnston High School team and coordinator for all of the Johnston teams, has been to over 12 World Finals over the years, both as a student and a coach. She described what is exciting for the students involved and why Iowa State is the place to hold the World Finals. “The climate is exciting, it’s fun, and they get to meet people from around the world. In addition to enjoying the experience, they also want to be successful. “Iowa State does a fantastic job, in my opinion the best job, hosting World Finals,” she said. “They have fantastic facilities, great food and friendly staff.” The opening ceremonies were Wednesday, and the World Finals will conclude with an awards ceremony at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, with a dance for students involved to be hosted afterward.
