The other candidate, Steven Leath, will speak at 3:45 p.m. Friday in 2019 Morrill Hall.


Subbaswamy looks forward By Kaleb.Warnock



ISU presidential candidate Kumble Subbaswamy was on campus Thursday offering Iowa State the first opportunity to interact with the next potential president. Subbaswamy began his presentation at the open forum by discussing the importance of research and education in the 21st century, particularly with regards to the developing world and globalized economy.






ROTC cadets will train Girl Scouts


Army ROTC cadets will travel to Camp Sacajawea in Boone on Saturday to help train Girl Scouts in a few basic skills. The event will run from 1 to 5 p.m., and 20 cadets will participate. The cadets will teach the Girl Scouts about first aid, land navigation, and what to do if they happen to get lost. The cadets volunteered with the event last year and were asked to come back for a second after making a positive impact last year. The event is an annual campout for Girl Scout troops from the area. There will be approximately 55 Girl Scouts from the service unit, some of whom will stay the night at Camp Sacajawea. There will be an opening and closing flag ceremony, dinner, and campfire sing along. During the day the girls will participate in four rotations. One is led by JAX, a local sporting goods store. They will also learn how to make soda can sundials and eclairs over the fire. The Army ROTC cadets will lead the two other rotations. Carly McKinney Daily Staff Writer

“We must be committed to a meaning of globalization,� he said. “Certainly it needs to be a coherent, organized university-wide effort.� There were several critical questions regarding how Iowa State was going to keep up with globalization in both the economic and the educational sphere. His solution is to think innovation. He cited exploiting advantages through innovation, capitol and know-how. This combination still exists in the U.S., and it’s the ad-

vantage it retains, especially regarding university investment and innovation. “We talked about innovation being critically important,� he said. “It implies working outside of the box, and if you work inside the box, you’ll keep getting the same result.� Part of Subbaswamy’s plan for innovation is to reach out to other universities abroad in order to keep up with globalization. “The challenge in the ongoing world, when so many

With the start of the new school year, football season and weekend parties, one of the main concerns for many underage students is how they can get their hands on alcohol. To solve this predicament, many resort to asking upperclassmen they know to supply their liquid dreams. But for a select few, this is too much of a hassle. With a good fake ID, underage students can usually purchase alcohol at many liquor stores undetected and potentially test the waters at the local bars. But with a renewed focus from law enforcement on minimizing the use of fake IDs, there is talk that this could be a dying breed of collegiate thuggery. The Iowa Department of Transportation recently released a news report about the serious consequences that come with

recent crackdown efforts show they have been successful, so far. According to Iowa DOT, a recent bust in Cedar Falls led to the arrest of two individuals and the seizure of 24 fake licenses. On top of that, more than 1,700 fake IDs, many of which were headed for Iowa universities, have been captured in the Chicago area since the beginning of 2011. “Falsifying a driver’s license is a serious misdemeanor,� said Lt. Elliott Florer of the ISU Police Department. “First offenses can carry up to a year in jail and a heavy fine. Second offenses can be much worse.� A recent issue has been that many students who wish to purchase fake IDs have resorted to using the Internet, which only expands the problem. The

Spurred by the death of Jamey Rodemeyer, Lady Gaga is on a mission to make bullying illegal. The Buffalo, N.Y., teenager Rodemeyer committed suicide on Sunday. The 14-year-old, who made a video for the “It Gets Better” PSA project, endured intense harassment about his sexuality by classmates at Williamsville North High School. In his “It Gets Better” video, Rodemeyer cited Lady Gaga as an inspiration, and on Wednesday, Gaga took to Twitter to advocate for laws against bullying. According to ABC, the teen wrote lyrics from Gaga’s song “The Queen” on his Facebook wall on the weekend that he committed suicide: “Don’t forget me when I come crying to heaven’s door.” The network reports that police have opened a criminal investigation into the bullying that led to Jamey’s death. No bullying laws exist in New York State, but police are looking into aggravated harassment charges.

Researchers combat rootworm By Shuyang Qu Daily correspondent ISU researchers are working on possible solutions to a western corn rootworm that is resistant to genetically modified corn in Iowa fields. Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) produces crystals of protein, which are toxic to many species of insects. Insects that eat plants with Bt crystals die because the walls of their guts break down. In order to reduce losses from pests, some plants, like cotton, have been modified with short sequences of Bt genes to express the crystal protein and protect themselves from insects without external Bt and/or synthetic pesticide sprays. Aaron Gassmann, assistant professor of entomology, found why the four fields in Iowa suffered from western

corn rootworm injury. “The common pattern that was observed in the fields with problems was consecutive planting of the same type of Bt corn for at least three seasons,” Gassmann said. “The consecutive use of the same type of transgenic or Bt corn seems to be leading to this problem.” The best-case scenario is to use proper rotation — moving the field out of corn production to something else like soybeans, which could break the life cycle of the corn rootworm. Other practical solutions are to change the type of seeds by using different types of transgenetic corn or to use different ways of killing the corn rootworm such as combining with different pesticides. Also, non-transgenic corn with pesticide is an operable plan. These strategies make changes to the environment that help prevent worms from

adapting Bt toxins and any other new practices. Transgenic technology makes pest management easier. However, Gassmann pointed out that if people rely solely on the technology and use the same management strategy for years, problems may rise. Pests have the ability to adapt human practices. Chad Hart, assistant professor and grain markets specialist of economics, said the western corn rootworm is both “a big deal and not a big deal. It is a big deal because we do find the rootworm that is resistant to Bt technology, and it does have impact on corn farming,” he said. However, Bt technology is only one pest-resistance pathway. There are other techniques to keep rootworm in the bay. These pathways are already available for the farmers to react on the emergence

of western corn rootworm. Rootworm does not have major effect on corn market, but only highly localized effect, which is under control. We should certainly watch on the evolving of pests and develop proper techniques to reduce the damage, Gassmann said. Additionally, many articles use “superbug” to describe the western corn rootworm, but Gassmann said the term is inaccurate. Usually, when the pests adapt to something (in this case Bt corn), it actually becomes weaker in other environments. The increased ability to survive in an environment comes from the cause of decreasing ability of survival in other environments. Therefore, the western corn rootworm is more like a specialized bug that developed a new way of surviving, not a superbug that can survive anywhere.

The Iowa DOT report warned of the possibility that parents could “wake up tomorrow morning and find a lien is in place on their home or a credit card acquired in their name, simply because their child gave personal information to an overseas Internet site.” Additionally, the process in making fake IDs also has become much more sophisticated than in years past. In turn, states have had to enhance their techniques in creating counterfeit-proof driver’s licenses and other forms of identification. “Laminating fake licenses has switched to directly printing fakes,” Florer said. “Improvements in technology lead to improvements in counterfeiting. It is important to stay one step ahead.” But how good are the latest fake

IDs? Many newer versions of fakes have adjusted to the new anti-counterfeit measures, but law enforcement and businesses still have ways to identify a fake.

language of the person ... a person who has a fake tends to be a lot more nervous.” This appears to be universal among local businesses in Ames. As Jansen pointed out, having dealt with many fake IDs in the past, he has become well-versed in determining the authenticity of a driver’s license. Because of this, along with a fake ID training course put on by the Ames Police Department for local businesses, Cafe Baudelaire and other bars and restaurants have built up a strong reputation of identifying fakes and deterring students from using them. “As far as IDs go, there are a lot of things to look for,” Jansen said. “If it’s expired quite a bit, then it’s most likely a fake. Additionally, a person who tries to use a fake ... they want to be 22, 23, or 24 years old, not 21. Also, Iowa IDs are the easiest because the newest ones have raised text, so it’s almost impossible to fake it.” Jansen went on to say that if bartenders or bouncers have probable cause to think that a driver’s license is fake, they have the right to seize the license until the police can come by to

through critical land-grant universities for promoting research and intentional effort to bring practical benefits from university research,” Subbaswamy said. Finally, his strongest point regarding research was the importance of the role of students. “You should start with the notion that Iowa State is and will remain the most student-centered research university,” he said.

verify it. Standard procedure would be that for the bartenders or bouncers to ask for an alternative form of identification. Jansen himself has asked for up to five forms of identification at a time. These preventative measures keep businesses from paying hefty fines and allow them to stay in businesses and continue to serve alcohol to those who are of age. “My fake ID made my ability to get alcohol a lot easier,” said an owner of a fake ID who wished to remain anonymous. “But I would not try getting into a bar in Ames ... I’m already breaking the law and I don’t want to get confronted and lose it.” If one is caught falsifying a document like a driver’s license, the long-term effects loom large. This is especially true when students graduate and look for a job. A misdemeanor of falsifying a driver’s license can lessen a student’s employment opportunities. “Stick to a safer scene than trying to get fakes,” Jansen said. “It’s not worth it in the long run, and you’ll have a lot less fun than you envisioned.”

Perry unable to manage his own state Republicans have spent quite a bit of time during the preliminary debates and speeches condemning President Barack Obama’s health care plan. Specifically, Rick Perry has accused Obama of using the government to take over the private health care industry. Rick Perry has clear his intentions to do away with Obamacare if he ever has the power. If he makes it into the Oval Office, he will “sign an executive order to wipe out as much of Obamacare as [he] can.” But replace it with what? Perry often praises his state’s health care system and medical facilities. But having productive or high-end medical centers does not mean that those who need health care receive it. More than 25 percent of Texans are currently lacking health care, insurance premiums have risen drastically in comparison with the national rate, infant morality rates have risen in comparison with a national decline, and 20 percent of seniors return to the hospital soon after being released. These trends are not indicative of a successful health care system. Some of these trends reflect an unusual increase in death and readmission, and those beyond newborns and the elderly are being affected. In recent years, a rising number (about 1/3) of Texan children didn’t receive an annual physical or teeth cleaning. This is not the same as adults that have decided to forgo buying medical insurance. These are kids that aren’t receiving childhood checkups. Additionally, back in November, Perry toyed with the idea of Texas opting out of Medicaid, which would leave nearly 3 million Texans without health coverage that were currently relying on the program. Perry’s claim that Texas has the best health care in the country is a falsehood. While Texas may house some renowned medical institutions, this does not mean the system by which it is distributed or available to the citizens is a good one. Texas health care currently ranks 46th in the nation, and falls in the bottom quartile in access, prevention and treatment, avoidable hospital use and costs, and equity. Texas only reaches the second quartile when it comes to its citizens leading healthy lives. Granted, this is an improvement from 2007, when Texas came in 48th in the nation. Perry has said Texas can handle its own health care, and that he works to “protect our families, taxpayers and medical providers.” But do Perry’s words stand up to the reality of Texas health care? The answer is “no.” If Perry can barely manage to ensure his own state has the necessities, what does he plan to do if he gains a higher office? Editorial Board

Big 12

Graphic: Iowa State Daily All the rumored or reported destinations for the teams of the Big 12 left the conference’s future uncertain until late this week. Confusion and doubt surrounded the future of the conference’s 10 members until the Pac-12 decided to remain at 12 members, settling realignment talks for the time being.

Create a contingency plan Amidst realignment talks, university must prepare

By Craig.Long

his past week, realignment talk started up again in the NCAA, and once again Iowa State barely escaped. God bless the Pac-12. Just like when Nebraska and Colorado bolted from the Big 12 Conference a year ago, we survived only as the conference did. The Pac-12’s announcement that it would not be accepting new schools forced Oklahoma and Texas to stay put, at least for now. Although everything worked out in the end, there were definitely some stressful moments where you had to ask: Where do we fit in this whole scheme? When all of this talk started up, I believed we would end up with the Big East. It appeared that the remnants of the Big 12 would join the Big East remnants to form the Red-Headed Stepchild conference. I kid about the name, but many of the schools that would have joined the RHS conference are exactly that — unattractive, unwanted schools for whatever reason. Things were looking so bad that the Mountain West, fodder of the Boise State Broncos, reached out to Iowa State. We need to go somewhere, and obviously conferences like the Mountain West and the Mid-America Conference would jump at the chance to grab a former power-conference school. If it is an upgrade for them, however, it most certainly would be a downgrade for us. Look at it objectively: We are not the best school in the Big 12, athletically or academically (going off U.S. News rankings). We don’t have a huge TV viewership (though, I would argue we hold our own in the state against Iowa better than most people give us credit for) and thus, don’t bring in an excess amount of money to larger conferences. Aside from that, however, we’ve got a pretty good thing going, especially as of late. We’re an Association of American Universities member,

for starters. The AAU is a collection of schools that meet certain academic standards, and that is a big deal to certain conferences. The entire Big Ten, except Nebraska (though they were when they were admitted last year, they’ve since been voted out), are members. To join a conference that does not feature high academic standards would be to harm our own position, conference members, though they may be sports rivals, often partner to conduct research that benefits all the members. In addition, our football program has been better than .500 against Iowa in the past 15 years. That’s not to say we’d be out winning Big Ten championships with regularity. With that being the only rubric to measure how we would fare in football in the Big Ten, it is hard to argue against that we would be competitive, now and in the future. Our other sports, such as women’s basketball, volleyball, and wrestling typically field nationally competitive teams. The buzz around the men’s basketball team is greater now than I can remember it being since the departure of Larry Eustachy; coach Fred Hoiberg’s teams look to grow and make more and more noise as time progresses. Despite the fact that we should be a more than appetizing school for a major conference to pick up, however, nothing is said, nothing is heard and our future is in doubt. During this past realignment period, there were different reports flying from every direction about which conference was in negotiations with which school, and what it meant to the big picture. However, the Big Ten was quiet, as was Iowa State. It seemed as though neither side even considered the possibility of membership, or opened discussions for it, even though we are the only large state school within the Big Ten’s footprint that is not a member. We qualify academically, and to automatically say


that we would fail to compete (or be worse than Minnesota, Northwestern or Indiana) is a false statement. So what’s happening here? Is it that Iowa fans’ boastful disgust of Iowa State is leaking into school leadership? Whereas schools like Texas and Texas Tech or Oklahoma and Oklahoma State make it clear that they are a package deal, it seems that Iowa is unwilling to lobby for us. Though Iowa doesn’t have nearly the clout of Ohio State or Michigan, if Iowa President Sally Mason met with Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany, he would listen to what she had to say. Is it a simple lack of competence by ISU leadership? Losing major conference membership would be devastating to the university as a whole. Maybe it just wasn’t leaked, but if we haven’t opened discussions with the Big Ten, something needs to change. After last time, when the situation seemed tenuous at best, we should have formed contingency plans. If the Big Ten was unwilling to look into offering us membership, we should have looked at what they are looking for in a school and tried to emulate it. If the Big Ten refused simply because we don’t carry a lot of TV sets with us, then it should be embarrassed. If it is all about the money, everything the conference stands for academically is a lie. They’re no better than money-hungry Texas, whose cash-grabbing network re-started this whole thing. The biggest result from these past couple weeks is this: We survived, again. However, we need to learn from our mistakes and be active and aggressive now. If we were naive enough to believe that the conference would stay together last time, this last episode was our wakeup call. We can’t hit snooze again.

Ideological diversity is important W

hen we seek out new groups of friends, we tend to gravitate toward those who have similar interests to us, similar ideologies, similar beliefs. It’s a safe feeling, to have friends that understand where you are coming from and understand your views. But sometimes it’s a bit too safe. When we wrap ourselves in like-minded viewpoints and insulate ourselves from people that differ from us, we are limiting our knowledge base. Not only that, but we are also depriving ourselves of opportunities to express and refine our own opinions and ideas. Whenever I see someone who is willing to openly discuss a significant difference of opinion, I gain a certain level of respect for that person. It takes courage to honestly explore ideas that contradict your own. There is the possibility that you might find yourself questioning preconceived notions, and to some, that is a place they don’t want to go. The mark of a good leader is someone who willingly seeks out and listens to the counsel of those that disagree with them. President Abraham Lincoln famously assembled a cabinet made up of people who held vastly different opinions than him on many issues.

By Claire.Vriezen Their voices forced him to look at other aspects of situations or legislation that he perhaps didn’t previously consider. The same principle, ideally, should be applied to our everyday relationships. While we don’t need to completely surround ourselves with dissent, limiting ourselves to friends just like us can turn discussion of some topics into a circlejerk. Conversation simply becomes everyone reiterating support of the group’s viewpoint. Additionally, the idea of ideological diversity can help shape and refine our own beliefs. Young adults tend to hold one of two general world views: that of their parents or that of a completely opposite world view. Politically conservative parents may produce like-minded children, because that is the view they have been raised with, or perhaps their children seek to differentiate themselves from their parents and become more liberal.

The company of those that would challenge your beliefs about the world forces you to explain your beliefs. Do you support the death penalty? Why? Do you support programs such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security? For what reasons? You may find that ideas you once held weren’t as well supported or logical as you once thought. More likely you will determine what exactly makes up the foundation of your views. It’s doubtful that someone will simply say that they can’t be friends with a Democrat or someone who supports the war in Iraq. Those typically aren’t deal-

breakers when it comes to forming relationships. But they may be deterrents, and they shouldn’t be. Diverse friends foster selfreflection and critical thinking. Every now and then it’s important for our own growth to embrace and understand those that disagree with us. Because there will always be those that disagree with us. We should do what we can to expand our own thinking to learn from them.

very year has its big buzzwords. Who could forget — no matter how much we might like to — such hits from years past as “chad,” “swift boat” and “lipstick” as it might be smeared on a pig — or a pit bull? A year ago at this time, “the narrative” was the biggest political buzzword in the Englishspeaking world, according to the Austin, Texasbased Global Language Monitor, a website that keeps track of such things. “The narrative” was beating out “climate change,” “Obama Muslim,” “lower taxes” and even “tea partyers.” By the end of the year, “the narrative” turned out to be the third most important buzzword or buzz phrase of 2010, out stripped only by “spillcam”(BP’s underwater camera on its Gulf oil spill) and “vuvuzela” (those annoying plastic horns from the South African World Cup). I was not surprised. In today’s media age, a good narrative has all but replaced the need for a candidate or a party to have a good platform. The late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously said, “You are entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts.” Were he around today, he might well be amazed to see how much of today’s news audiences increasingly feel entitled to their own facts — as delivered by their chosen media outlets: in print, talk radio, cable news and the Internet. Just as American parents shop for public schools when they shop for a house, today’s audiences choose their own narratives when they choose their media. Whether they realize it or not, they’re shop-

ping for their own “narrative,” also known as “spin,” “public image,” “propaganda” or “party line.” An old saying: A trial is a contest to see who hired the best lawyer. Campaigns are like trials: a contest to see which side can spin the best narrative — the most appealing and persuasive version of itself. The economy is the big narrative issue this year, but an effective campaign can even persuade you to vote against your own economic interests, if it can appeal to you through other values, ideologies, hopes, fears or dreams. That’s why Iowa matters. Besides, Iowa has charm — enough charm for us visitors to forgive such oddities as the Ames Straw Poll or fried butter on a stick. The emerging narrative of Campaign 2012 appears to be, in a word, anger. A recent CNN poll asked a direct question: Are you angry about the state of the country? Seventy-one percent said yes, only 27 percent said no. If the last election was about hope and change, the new one is about loss of hope because of changes that have taken place, whether as a result of the president or in spite of him. The big question for Republicans has become: Which candidate can express the anger of the party’s conservative base? Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty dropped out early because, try as he might, he could not beat the emerging narrative of the GOP’s 2012 primary races. He was a nice, moderate conservative in an angry, far-right conservative year. Political coverage tends to be geared either to issues or “the horse race,” which focuses less on the issues than the politicking: strategies,

endorsements, gains, setbacks and, more than anything else, the polls. The question in the horse race is less about what Obama actually says in his jobs speech, for example, but more about how those words will play into Mitt Romney’s chances to beat Rick Perry on the electability scale. Or emerging issues on the public mind get lost. Or worse, a false narrative takes hold, either by mistake or somebody’s intentional propaganda. Part of the anger I have picked up at tea party rallies — and other angry voters — is aimed at media and deep-pocket party leaders who seem to decide on what the people are going to vote before the first vote is cast. I am delighted

when my fellow pundits and I predict election outcomes — and guess wrong. When voters surprise in the privacy of the voting booth, it reassures me that we are not living in Castro’s Cuba or Kim’s North Korea. What is to be done? Today’s media-rich environment puts a greater obligation than ever on news consumers to make intelligent choices. So, caveat empto: Let the buyer beware. We enjoy our free press and our freedom to choose leaders. But, as Martin Luther King Jr. used to say, freedom is not free. Candidates spend hundreds of millions of dollars to drive the campaign narrative. The press and the people can — and must — do all they can to take it back.


Why weren’t interviews on campus? I am interested to know why we conducted preliminary interviews for our next university president in Minneapolis. Really? Why? What’s wrong with campus? Are we worried that Iowa State isn’t as good as maybe these potential presidents think it is? Are we worried that students will riot or there will be an alert while they are here? Iowa State has one of the top 10 most

beautiful campuses in the country. We aren’t a bustling city, but there’s always something fun to do. We even have great concerts, plays and community events year-round. And that’s just Ames. If you go to Des Moines, there’s even more.

It’s not as if the candidates’ identities are secret. So it’s not to protect them from being revealed, should they also be applying to another university. The regents should show off the beauty of our campus, the ease of travel to and from our community, and the courtesy and classiness of our people by interviewing the people for a job as leader of our university at our university — or at least in our state.

Big 12:

Beebe out, teams will share revenue The Big 12 dumped its embattled commissioner Thursday and said nine schools had pledged to give their TV rights to the conference for the next six years, a step intended to preserve a fractured league that has lost two members in the past year and is expected to lose another by next summer. “The bottom line is we achieved substantial reforms,” Oklahoma President David Boren said after school presidents met by telephone for more than an hour. “We feel extremely good.” Anil Gollahalli, Oklahoma’s general counsel, said no contracts had been signed yet — in part because some schools must get the approval of their governing boards. Commissioner Dan Beebe is gone after five up-and-down years that included securing a 13-year, $1.2 billion contract with Fox Sports but sharp criticism for failing to keep Nebraska (Big Ten) and Colorado (Pac-12) from leaving over the summer. Texas A&M plans to leave by July for the Southeastern Conference. “I put all my effort into doing what was best for the Big 12. With great fondness, I wish the Big 12 Conference a long and prosperous future,” Beebe said in a statement released by the Big 12. Former Big Eight Commissioner Chuck Neinas will serve as interim commissioner. Revenue sharing and a change of leadership were considered by some schools, notably Oklahoma, as the top issues to address to save the league in the latest round of conference realignment. The Big 12 splits revenue from its Fox Sports contract evenly, but only half of the money from its top-tier deal with ABC goes into equal shares. Jim Vertuno, The Associated Press


Missouri stays part of Big 12 for now COLUMBIA, Mo. — Missouri will remain a member of the Big 12 as the nine remaining schools move forward after the conference’s future was in doubt. Missouri chancellor Brady Deaton pledged the school’s commitment to the league at a packed news conference Thursday night in Jesse Hall. Deaton’s comments came after he and other Big 12 chancellors and presidents agreed to accept conference commissioner Dan Beebe’s resignation. Deaton chairs the conference board. He did not specifically address reports that Missouri was considering a move to the Southeastern Conference other than to note that many schools, including Missouri, “had one type of communication or another with every BCS conference” in recent weeks. Deaton also said the Big 12 will consider adding new members, but did not mention any specific targets. The Associated Press

‘Fortunate,’ not ‘lucky’ Cyclones see success despite turnovers

By Jake.Calhoun A bye week came with impeccable timing for the ISU football team, which has emerged from a nonconference schedule that had a combined record of 23-15 one season ago. In its 24-20 victory over Connecticut last Friday, Iowa State (3-0) committed 11 penalties for 91 yards and three turnovers — all of which were interceptions by quarterback Steele Jantz. However, the Cyclones did not let the setbacks serve as a nail in the coffin for them. “We hurt ourselves in what we were trying to accomplish,” said coach Paul Rhoads. “So to be standing here and to be 3-0, I feel we are fortunate.” On the season, the Cyclones have the second-most penalties in the nation with 30 — only Florida has more with 34 — and are -5 in turnover margin. “We’ve just got to cut out the mental mistakes,” said left tackle Kelechi Osemele. “It’ll take care of itself as time goes on, as the [offensive line] unit will continue to get better. I’m not too worried about it.” The difference between this year and years past, however, is the Cyclones’ confidence in clutch situations in which they constantly find themselves. “There’s more of a swagger on this team,” said junior linebacker

Jake Knott. “On offense or defense, no matter what situation we’re put in, we think that we can get out of it and be successful in that Rhoads situation.” In this week’s college football rankings, the Cyclones received 19 votes in the AP Top 25 and 27 votes in the USA Today Jantz coaches poll — both of which have them ranked 30th in the nation. “We’re certainly not sneaking up on anybody,” Rhoads said. “The win at UConn was very big. I discussed in the press conference how positive the Kansas victory was for us a year ago, but it was at home. “This game was on the road, and that UConn defense was a very talented group. They were a very good football team.” After not having a bye week the past two seasons, Iowa State has one to rest and recover in preparation for the beginning of Big 12 play against No. 19 Texas. “It puts us in a position going into this next big game with a level of confidence that’s needed if you’re going to play successful football against an opponent that has such a rich tradition as Texas does,” Rhoads said. Rhoads said that aside from the three players who have been sidelined due to ACL injuries and offensive guard Shaban Dika, who has

sustained an MCL injury, everyone should be able to practice Sunday in preparation for the Longhorns. “We’re a tired football team, we’re banged up a little bit,” Rhoads said. “This rest is what we need to get healthy.” Despite the fast start and the negative aspects of their game through three games this season, the Cyclones still have a lot to hone before the Longhorns come to Ames on Oct. 1. “As the coaches say, we’re on borrowed time,” Jantz said. “We can’t keep turning the ball over three times, which a lot of that is on my shoulders, and expect to win.” As far as the team’s success is concerned, Rhoads still prefers “fortunate” to “lucky.” “I wouldn’t call us lucky, because we’re doing a number of other things right,” Rhoads said. “But we still are very fortunate, and that fortune will go away as we dive into league play.”

Jantz on the mend Quarterback Steele Jantz is recovering from a strained foot injury he sustained at the end of the second quarter against UConn. With the week off, Jantz has had a chance to recover in time for the Cyclones’ game against Texas. “The foot’s getting a lot better,” Jantz said. “It was pretty sore after the game, but the treatment has helped a lot, and I feel pretty good.” Jantz’s injury was not readily recognizable as a foot strain until he was examined by the medical staff at halftime.

“We were nervous when he came off because he couldn’t really pinpoint what was the matter with him,” Rhoads said of Jantz. “I couldn’t tell the way he was limping.” Jantz said he has not missed any workouts or drills and expects to be back to 100 percent by the time practice starts next week.

Big 12 stability After the Pac-12’s announcement Tuesday that it would not expand to 16 teams that kept Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech from leaving the Big 12, a collective sigh of relief was emitted from the six remaining members of the conference. Rhoads said Wednesday that he was happy about the news, but was quick to point out that the situation is far from over. “We’ll all be more relieved when it’s all said and done, and ink is dry wherever things are going to go with the discussions that are going to take place in the near future,” Rhoads said. “But right now it’s certainly a very positive sign.” However, Rhoads said he did not follow the reports of the alleged happenings around possible conference realignment. “There was very little out there that was accurate about what was taking place,” Rhoads said. “Anybody citing sources and all that no real idea, in my opinion, what was going on. When the athletic director had information to share with me, which was very rare, then I paid attention.”


ISU win would give coach record By David.Merrill Coach Christy Johnson-Lynch tied the ISU all-time wins record at 135 with the team’s victory against Missouri on Wednesday. If Iowa State can put together its first road win of the season, Johnson-Lynch will be alone at the top. Senior outside hitter Carly Jenson has seen her game grow under Johnson-Lynch. Although JohnsonLynch has downplayed the record, her players have it high on their lists. “I’ll be excited for her,” Jenson said. “Hopefully it will be a day that goes down in history.” Senior right-side hitter Kelsey Petersen also has grown in the past four years under Johnson-Lynch’s guidance. Petersen noted that JohnsonLynch was one of the few coaches to give her an opportunity to play. “It’s going to mean a lot to me because she’s given so much to me and I want to give so much back to her,” Petersen said. “Hopefully on Saturday we can help her break that.” The Cyclones (10-2, 1-0 Big 12) are rolling on all cylinders as they head into the Texas Tech (13-1, 0-0) match. Iowa State hit a season-high .402 against Missouri and held the

Tigers to just 12 points in the opening set. That is the fewest points in a set an opponent has put up so far this season. Iowa State put up one of its best blocking performances against Missouri. The Cyclones have seen their blocking numbers improve from game to game. This is due to a switch in technique from the standard-side block to the swing block. Swing blocking makes for a more aggressive style. “I felt like, just watching our blocking over the past couple years and our numbers we just looked stagnant,” Johnson-Lynch said. “We’re pretty predictable where we set up. In a swing block, your hands don’t penetrate until the last second, so its harder for the hitter to know what’s open.” The Cyclones are hoping the new swing blocking technique will help them end their road-game skid. They were swept by Nebraska and Northern Iowa in their previous two road games. “We’re hoping to learn from our last two road losses and figure out how to get things done on the road,” said senior middle blocker Deb Stadick. “We’ve been tested now, so hopefully we will come out on top after it.” Texas Tech leads the all-time

series 20-13, but Iowa State has dominated the series under JohnsonLynch. Under her leadership, the Cyclones have gone 11-1 against the Red Raiders. Eight of the victories have been sweeps. The Cyclones won last year’s matchup in Lubbock 3-1 while they beat them in straight sets at home. The Red Raiders’ 13-1 record could be deceiving. None of their opponents

made the NCAA tournament in 2010 and only two finished in the top 100 RPI. “I think our mindset this year needs to be that every team is good,” Staddick said. “Every team is beatable and every team can beat you. We beat UNI the past three years and this year, they kicked our butts. You can’t let [recent dominance] over a team impact your mindset.”

Cyclones go south for Big 12 play By Cory.Weaver The ISU soccer team heads south this weekend to kick off its Big 12 conference schedule against Texas A&M and Texas. Last season, the Cyclones (6-3-1) lost both matches against the Aggies (6-4, 1-0 Big 12) and Longhorns (6-2). However, coach Wendy Dillinger believes they have what it takes to flip those results this year. “We’ve got to score that early goal if we get a chance and take advantage of set pieces and corner kicks, which is something we’ve done better this year,” Dillinger said. “I think if we can score a goal on a set piece or corner during the game, that’s definitely going to give us some momentum.” Iowa State won its first conference match last season against Kansas, but then went on to lose its next seven before winning the final two. Sophomore forward Jennifer Dominguez said getting off to a strong start is key. “We just have to take advantage of our chances, and once we’re given the opportunity, we have to finish them,” she said. The first game is Friday night at 6:30 against Texas A&M in College Station, Texas. A win against the Aggies last year slipped through Iowa State’s grips in overtime. If this year’s contest goes into extra frames again, Dominguez said, the Cyclones will have to finish. “We have to prepare and go out in practice and know we have to finish a full 90 minutes,” Dominguez said. “If it comes to it and we have to finish a full 110 minutes, then we’ll have to do that.” Texas A&M enters the game after a 13-1 beatdown against Fordham, and its 39 goals this season are a conference-best. However,

the Aggies have also allowed 19 goals this season to lead the conference, and Dillinger said the Cyclones plan to exploit that statistic. “Defensively, we really need to focus on our outside backs, making sure they are doing a good job one-on-one, forcing them to stay wide and then when they go to serve the ball, block the service,” Dillinger said. “The thing we can’t do is let them stand us up and then cut inside. “That’s the big thing is just once they do get the ball to their forward line, put them under pressure, don’t let them turn and run at us and force them one way.” After their game against the Aggies, the Cyclones travel to Austin, Texas, to face the Longhorns Sunday at 1 p.m.

At press time, the Cyclones hadn’t begun to prepare for Texas yet, but Dillinger said their game plan wouldn’t be much different. The Longhorns scored on a header in the final five minutes of the match against the Cyclones last season, with the free kick coming off the foot of forward Kylie Doniak. Doniak leads the team with five goals this season, and ISU junior co-captain Megan Long said they’ll definitely pay attention to her. “We’ve just got to keep an eye on her, make sure she’s

marked tight at all times,” Long said. “We defend anyone as we would just by having that special eye out for those people who produce and put points on the board, so [we’ve] just got to keep an eye out.” After this weekend’s games, the Cyclones return to the ISU Soccer Complex for a pair of home games against Oklahoma State and Baylor.
