Thoughts on Game Day Drinking
jane morrow pre-P.A. sophomore
“To me, I think it’s gotten to be so much about getting drunk that it feels like people don’t care about the game as much as the tailgating and having so much fun before the game.”
“The rules of (drinking alcohol) on campus that we have, I think it should apply all the time versus non-game days.”
Kristen Pushor undeclared freshman
“I don’t think you should overuse (alcohol). If people want to do it, that’s cool, but don’t overdo it and then ruin everyone’s day.” Michaela Bobcok secondary education freshman
“The campus has a different mindset and culture on game days, which is not necessarily a bad thing.”
joshua dale agricultural business junior
“It kind of ruins everybody’s good time (at the game) whenever people are drunk and fighting and throwing up. It’s just not good representation.” caramie engle pre-med junior
At Oklahoma State University since 1895
Surge in game day alcohol offenses addressed starting Saturday By Tyler Silvy, Cory Kirk and Jessica Green Contributing Reporters The game day experience at Oklahoma State University could be changing drastically as administrators tackle the growing issue of students over-consuming alcohol. At the four home games this year, there have been 101 arrests. Students comprised 75 of those arrests, and every arrest was alcohol related, said Mike Robinson, OSU police chief. Robinson said the alcohol problem is the worst he has seen in his eight years with the department. Campus buildings were vandalized last year, and bathrooms inside Boone Pickens Stadium were damaged this year. For some students and alumni, the game day experience just stinks. There have been 20 reported incidents in which people were vomited on. “It’s a widespread problem on campus,” Robinson said. “I think everyone’s aware of the fact that there’s potential there to have a tragic situation occur.” A recent meeting of OSU’s top officials yielded immediate changes, which will be incorporated for the remaining three home games. The following changes take effect this Saturday: • Fans caught with alcohol within Boone Pickens Stadium will be kicked out instead of being asked to dump out their alcohol. • Contact information for any student violators will be sent to Student Affairs to begin a student conduct proceeding. • More officers will be assigned to areas of highest suspected alcohol-related offenses, such as minor in possession and furnishing alcohol to a minor. • Kick-off times changed to 2 p.m. if the game is not televised. Gary Clark, vice president for University Relations, said the meeting was called after the athletic department contacted his office this year when bathrooms were vandalized at Boone Pickens
Stadium. “This is the first meeting that I’ve attended that dealt with (alcohol problems),” Clark said. “It really just arose because of what seemed to be an increasing number of problems that we were having, and I just said, ‘Shouldn’t we meet about this to try to get a handle on one, how extensive the problem is and two, where’s the problem coming from? What kinds of things could we or should we do to try and address the problems?’” After reviewing arrest records, Clark said he noticed the biggest issues were minor in possession and public intoxication arrests. Clark got the numbers from Robinson, who said they could be misleading. “I don’t know how significant the number is,” Robinson said. “Frankly, we could arrest 10 times that if we had the officers to do it. We just can’t. We just don’t have enough people.” Robinson said he and the OSU Police Department have been saying for the last couple of years that the alcohol problem is getting worse on campus on game days, and said he thinks there are some other people on campus that are starting to see that. Clark contacted Robinson to give input at the meeting, which Vice President for Student Affairs Lee Bird hosted. “This is my eighth football season, and I can say I perceive the alcohol problem to be much worse now than it was eight years ago,” Robinson said. “The biggest difference is that people are just blatant about it now. When I came eight years ago, if people had alcohol they tried to be pretty discreet about it: they put it in a paper cup. We’ve gone from that to seeing people literally carrying kegs of beer down the street.” See ALCOHOL Page 5
The following changes to OSU’s alcohol policy take effect Saturday: • Fans caught with alcohol within Boone Pickens Stadium will be kicked out instead of being asked to dump out their alcohol. • Contact information for any student violators will be sent to Student Affairs to begin a student
conduct proceeding. • More officers will be assigned to areas of highest suspected alcohol-related offenses, such as minor in possession and furnishing alcohol to a minor. • Kick-off times changed to 2 p.m. if the game is not televised.

Fans to chalk for Spirit Walk By RYLIE BURNS Campus Events Reporter Cowboy fans will paint encouraging messages for the Oklahoma State University football team and coaches on Hester Street to read during the Spirit Walk. The street painting is at 5 p.m. Wednesday on Hester Street between the Student Union and Engineering South. “This event is an opportunity for families to get together and paint the street in order to encourage and support the team,” said Robyn Matthews, communications and public relations executive for the event. Matthews said this isn’t an event for the student body exclusively, but

Holly Thill, homecoming director for univeristy spirit, emphasized the event as an activity for families. “It’s especially important for the families in Stillwater,” Thill said. “Most (homecoming) events are geared toward the students. The
Hester Street painting allows the young ones to see what OSU Homecoming is all about.” Participants can write messages of pride for the Cowboys. “The street painting is a great idea,” said Lyndon Hoel, a chemical engineering senior who has yet to participate in the tradition. “The supportive words will help the team produce a victory over a difficult opponent at home.” In case of bad weather, the event will be postponed until 5 p.m. Thursday.

Cowgirls exceed expectations By DYLAN SMITH
Up next Soccer
Sports Reporter The type of success the Cowgirls are having this season was not expected by experts, fans or even players and coaches. The No. 5 Cowgirls (14-1-1, 7-0-0) are undefeated in Big 12 play and are on a 13-game unbeaten streak, which includes a tie against Colorado College. Also, OSU is officially unbeaten at home (9-0-0) having played its last regular season home game on Saturday against Nebraska. Not even coach Colin Carmichael could have guessed the Cowgirls would have this kind of success. “We are 14-1-1 and I don’t think any of us could have predicted that,” Carmichael said. “We knew we had the talent to compete in just about every

game we play so we kind of just take it week by week and this is where we are now.” The Cowgirl’s unexpected success came even after the loss of senior midfielder Annika Niemeier, a candidate for the Hermann Trophy, which is basically equivalent to the Heis-
man, but for women’s soccer. Niemeier tore her anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee against Oregon on Aug. 27, the third game of the season. “I think it took us about a week or so after the Annika injury just to find our feet,”
Carmichael said. “We changed our system a little bit to accommodate the players better and they bought right in to our new system.” Junior defender Elizabeth DeLozier said the Cowgirls were forced to accomodate for
the loss of Niemeier. “We obviously are missing our key player that went out this season,” DeLozier said. “We are making up for that loss.” See SOCCER Page 3
It’s all about football this time
Column by KYLE FREDRICKSON Sports Reporter My planner is full this week. TODAY: Street Painting on Hester Street. THURSDAY: Orange Ambiance at Theta Pond. FRIDAY: Walkaround in the Greek Neighborhood. Homecoming & Hoops at Gallagher-Iba. SATURDAY: Sea of Or-
Cowgirls’ Richardson receives two honors
ange Parade in downtown Stillwater. SUNDAY: Harvest Carnival and Chili Cook-off at the Payne County Expo. But I feel there is something I have forgotten in this Homecoming madness. Something more important than every single item in my planner. Oh, that’s right. Football. It is usually given second billing during this week but Saturday’s game against No. 14 Nebraska will break the mold of past years. The game has become more important than the 70,000 people heading to Stillwater this weekend. It’s time to make room in the planner. But first, let’s take a history lesson. The Cowboys have won three straight homecoming games, but that shouldn’t come as a surprise.
In 2007, an unranked OSU team edged out No. 25 Kansas State, 41-39. In 2008, the No. 8 Cowboys put a 34-6 pounding against Baylor. Last year, the No. 16 Cowboys took care of business against unranked Missouri in a 33-17 win. These were all wins that came as little, to no shock, for fans. But when the No. 17 Cowboys of 2010 welcome the Nebraska Cornhuskers to Boone Pickens Stadium on Saturday night, these other games will fade from memory. That’s because the result could cut a BCS-sized hole in the Big 12 Conference the Cowboys could run through, if the pieces fall in place. No, I won’t go out on a ledge and say Brandon Weeden will undoubtedly lead his Cowboys to a Big 12 Championship, but the possibility will grow with a win
against Nebraska. Unlike past years, it’s not a two-horse race for the Big 12 South. Texas already slipped with a home loss against UCLA and Oklahoma has been up and down all season despite its 6-0 record. The Sooners have looked suspect at times this year against less-talented opponents. The boys from Norman won their home opener against unranked Utah State by just seven points and squeezed by unranked Cincinnati on the road by three points. OU is far from invincible this year. With a win against Nebraska, the Cowboys will solidify their presence on the national level. Being that their most impressive wins came against teams not
ranked in the Top-25, it’s not hard to understand why OSU has not gotten the national attention that their ranking would imply. If the Cowboys get the win against a Cornhusker team that was held to six points last week in a loss against Texas, it would put OSU on the path to a 10win season. The kind of season that lands you in a BCS bowl game. So, go see the floats, paint the streets and eat the chili. But when Oct. 23 rolls around, erase the note in your planner that says to watch re-runs of Greys Anatomy at 2:30 p.m. Homecoming is all about football in 2010.
Katie Richardson picked up a pair of accolades for her performances in leading the No. 5 Cowgirls to wins against Colorado and Nebraska last week. Richardson was named to the TopDrawerSoccer.com Women’s Team of the Week, and on Tuesday she was honored as the Big 12 Conference Co-Offensive Player of the Week for games played from Oct. 14-17. A senior forward from Broken Arrow, Okla., Richardson scored three goals and had an assist on the weekend as she helped OSU remain perfect in Big 12 play and also tie a school record by extending its unbeaten streak to 13 matches. In Friday’s 3-2 win against Colorado, Richardson had two goals, including the game winner in the 59th minute with a spectacular individual effort in which beat several defenders and the goalie for the score. The two-goal performance was Richardson’s first of the season and fourth of her career. Coach Colin Carmichael said he was thrilled with her effort in the Colorado game. “She was fantastic,” he said. “She stepped up in the second half and won us the game. The second goal was basically just an individual effort. She just wanted that goal more than the defenders wanted the ball. We told her after the game she won the game for us — no doubt about it.” On Saturday, Richardson had an assist and a goal in the Cowgirls’ 4-2 win against Nebraska. With her performances over the weekend, Richardson moved into the top 10 on OSU’s career charts for goals (18) and points (49). She is second on the team with five goals in 2010, and her four assists leads the Cowgirls.

Features PROFESSOR PROFILE: By ERIK RADTKE General Assignment Reporter Professor Charles Fort is a visiting professor of creative writing. He joined the faculty this year after leaving an endowed chair at the University of Nebraska at Kearny. After teaching for 35 years, he finds OSU very welcoming. “It’s a very good place to write and teach,” Fort said, “It’s a good opportunity to be at a place that supported the creative process.” As a child, Fort read constantly. “(I tried) to read every book
in the public library in Connecticut,” Fort said. With literary inspiration, Fort went into high school known as a ‘Jock-Poet’; reciting poems and lettering in cross country and track. After high school, Fort went on to receive his master’s degree of fine arts from Bowling Green State University. He says that family and past experiences inspire every writer, himself included, but a lot of his work comes from the imagination. Fort has even created his own type of poem, the Medievalist Echo-Versed. “It’s always good to have different styles and forms for our
contemporary student body,” Fort said. After his late wife passed, Fort established a foundation in her name, The Wendy Fort Foundation for Dance, Literature and Film. The foundation assists universities and independent artists in the creation of visual arts. In the last year, Fort has been working on three manuscripts, two of which are compilations of new and selected poems. The other is his first novel, “The Last Black Hippie in Connecticut.” The novel is about living in Connecticut during the 1960’s and 1970’s, along with other experiences as well. Along with these manu-
scripts, Fort is working on a documentary of his hometown, New Britain, Connecticut. The professor recently learned that his mother was born and raised in Eufala, Oklahoma. “I’m going to take a trip there and see if the people look like me,” Fort said. As for his stay in Oklahoma, Fort is applying for a permanent position at the university. He will also be holding a poetry reading and book signing at 8 p.m. on Nov. 3 in the Murray Hall Parlor.

How to live like a princess By MARY ALLRED Fashion and Beauty Reporter Every girl should feel like a princess. Beautifying oneself is part of playing the princess role. Imagine perfectly manicured hands, lovely, soft makeup and a charming perfume. Those subtleties are what make a princess stand out. One of the most important aspects of a beauty regime is lotion. Lotion reinvigorates and turns a body and hands
into soft velvet on a cold winter’s day. It is best to apply lotion within the first few minutes after a luxurious bath or shower for maximum absorption. Soap is another key component to the beauty regime. The premier soap to own is French milled, because of its high standards of preparation, natural ingredients and its long-lasting staying power. The perfect soap should be used twice a day on the face and neck for maximum cleansing and purification of the skin. Every princess needs time

Harvest Carnival captivates city From Page 1 Admission to the event was one canned food item. All food items collected were donated to Harvest II, a local food bank. A chili cook-off was held in conjunction with Harvest Carnival. “We had 29 entries in the Chili Cook-off this year, which is the most we have ever had,” Fry said. The Harvest Carnival competition was open to members of greek homecoming pairings, residential life and student
organizations. Each group designed carnival games for the children. Game entries included a human crossword puzzle, cattle roping and a beanbag toss. “(Harvest Carnival) is something for the kids to come out and have fun,” said Erica Cook, a community mother. “You don’t have to worry about bringing them out here as opposed to neighborhoods.” Cook’s daughter, Bryn, 3, ran around the games in her Snow White costume collecting candy from OSU students. “She has been talking about coming out here all day,” Cook said.

soccer experiences unexpected level of success. From Page 2 As one of the captains of the defense, DeLozier said she is proud of the defense and its role in the Cowgirls’ 13-game unbeaten streak. “Very consistent,”DeLozier said. “We have given up a few goals but that is something we can fix.” Junior forward Krista Lopez has played a key role in the team’s success. Lopez has 12 goals with three games remaining. She had two goals last season. Lopez said the impressive play is fairly simple

to describe. “The more you win, the more confidence you gain,” Lopez said. “We have always been a defensive team and we always had trouble scoring, but now our offense is really stepping up and our defense has kept up the good work.” Lopez also said the Cowgirls are well aware of the target they have on them as their strong play continues. “Teams give us their best and they are going to fight really hard,” Lopez said. “They know they have to give their best to beat us.”
Carmichael said the pressure the of succeeding will not negatively impact the team. “I think that the pressure that we put on ourselves to succeed is probably greater than anything that people can put on us from the outside,” Carmichael said. “These kids want to win, the coaches want to win, we want more trophies, we want more rings and that’s definitely a theme that’s been building over the years; there is a little bit of tradition now and we are expected to compete at this level.”

The Daily O’Collegian
By TEMITOPE AKANDE Forum Columnist If you’ve followed the news lately, you may have realized that the conventional wisdom is that Republicans appear poised to wrest control of Congress from Democrats once the midterm election dust settles. Republicans are favorites to win not because they’ve put forward any new ideas—in fact, they are still peddling the same failed Bush economic policies—but rather because they’re riding a wave of voter anger and discontent with the state of the economy.
I can understand why voters are angry, particularly when the unemployment rate is 9.6 percent. Who wouldn’t be? However, what I don’t understand is why anyone’s anger over the state of the economy would make them want to vote for the same Republicans and the same Republican ideas that put America in this mess in the first place. If we put our anger and frustrations aside and examine the facts, we discover that, since the 1900s, America has always relied on Democrats to lead the country and move it forward. In the 1930s, after Republican Herbert Hoover led the country into the Great Depression, America turned to Democrat Franklin Roosevelt to lead them out. FDR brought the economy back by instituting programs that create jobs. He also created social security and minimum wage, programs that lifted millions of seniors and workers out of poverty. During the dark days of the civil rights struggle, it was Democrats such as Lyndon Johnson who went against their own political interest to
fight for equal rights for all Americans, white or black, male or female. In 1992, after 12 years of President Ronald Reagan and President George H.W. Bush’s Republican leadership left America with record unemployment, crime and deficits, America once again turned to Democrats to grow the country when they elected Bill Clinton. President Clinton created 23 million jobs, balanced the budget and left a record surplus of $200 billion. In 2000, Republican George W. Bush inherited a growing economy and a record budget surplus, but left the country with a $1.3 trillion deficit and a collapsed economy. He also doubled the national debt and lost four million jobs in the last year of his administration alone. Once again, Republican failure made Americans turn en masse to Democrat Barack Obama in 2008. In the 20 months of his administration, the economy is now growing again, and the private sector has created over 650,000 jobs in the last eight months. In light successive Republi-
A contest between anger and self-interest
can failures with the economy, it is perplexing that people would want to vote these people back into power when the economy has started growing again. To quote former President Bill Clinton, “Just think, ‘What
do we have to do, and who is more likely to do it?’” If you are angry about the economy and the deficit, then vote for Democrats, because Democrats have always delivered economic prosperity and balanced budgets. Needless to
say, a vote for the Republicans cast in anger is a vote against your own best economic and social interests.

A dire plea for sanity The downfall of science and By ERIC SMITH Forum Columnist In less than two weeks, Oklahomans will go to the polls to decide who will be our next governor. One major difference exists between the two candidates: only one is truly qualified to lead our state. Jari Askins has a long record of serving the people of Oklahoma. She served as a special district judge for eight years before being appointed to the state’s pardon and parole board, and was the first woman in state history to lead this agency as its chair. With funding to state prisons cut as they overflow with inmates, with the incarceration of women at an all-time high and with 24 lawsuits filed against our state legislature this year on the basis of constitutionality, Oklahoma needs a leader who has experience with its laws and constitution. Askins served in the state legislature for 12 years, where she earned a reputation for bipartisanship. There, she worked with both parties to pass dozens of bills on behalf of small businesses, agriculture, education and benefits for poor children and families.
She served as the Democratic minority leader, making her Oklahoma’s first female leader of either party. Besides the positive legislation she was able to pass during both Democrat and Republican-controlled legislatures, Republican Senator Bob Drake provided further testimony to Askins’ record with an endorsement this summer, where he reminded voters that Askins had recently “won the top award the (Oklahoma) Farm Bureau can possibly give.” While Askins devotes her time to telling Oklahomans about her dedication to fighting for all of us, Tea Party candidate Mary Fallin continues to parade around the state trying to convince us all that she has actually done something. I urge all of you to check the facts, because Fallin’s career has been quite different from Askins. Last week, an intern for the Fallin campaign wrote the to The Daily O’Collegian. He blamed Congress for the fact that Fallin has not been able to get a single piece of legislation passed since she was elected to represent Oklahoma in Washington, D.C. Like I said, Askins was able to get her bills passed in the
mathematics in America
reddest state in the country. Sorry, Fallin, but we’re not buying it. Fallin needs to stop campaigning against President Obama and start offering some real solutions for Oklahoma and its citizens. Oh and, by the way, repeating “cut taxes” is not an economic recovery plan, especially considering that virtually every state service was cut this year. Fallin touts “axing” the state income tax, while offering no alternative revenue source. Here’s a hint: taxes run those services, and Oklahoma is already among the lowest in nearly every ranking imaginable as far as the conditions our citizens live in today. Askins has actually crafted a budget. Askins has proven that she is not interested in fighting our nation’s president. She is going do what she has always done: serve Oklahoma’s interests, regardless of which party benefits. I urge my fellow students and Oklahomans to ignore the petty partisanship attacks and vote for Jari Askins on Nov. 2.
By JOSHUA DAMRON Forum Columnist The “Science and Engineering Indicators 2010”—reported by the National Science Foundation—unveiled a grim trend in American science education. The Program for International Student Assessment is an assessment aimed to test students’ logical reasoning, abilities to process information and general mathematical and scientific applicability. The assessment’s scores from 2006 reported that 15-year-old students in the United States scored lower than 18 out of 24 comparable nations in mathematics, while the 90th percentile scores in America were “relatively low” to other nations. The number of nations scoring higher than the U.S. on the
Eric Smith is a political science and public relations senior. email@example.com
science assessment increased from six to 12 between 2000 and 2006. This is oddly juxtaposed with the fact that the U.S. has the highest concentration of knowledge and technology intensive industries in the world. The industries make up 38 percent of the American gross domestic product and 21 percent of China’s GDP (also reported by the National Science Foundation). In 2007, 24 percent of the master’s degrees in science and engineering were awarded to foreign students. Thirty-three percent of doctorates in science and engineering were awarded to foreign students. About 20 percent of bachelor’s degrees awarded in Asia are in engineering. In China, that number is nearly one-third. In the U.S., only 5 percent of bachelor’s degrees are in engineering. Unfortunately, it seems that the quality of American science education is in decline. The number of foreign students coming to America exemplifies the growing globalization of education. So, maybe there is no problem. We can globalize, outsource and import talent and skills to get the job done, and Americans need not worry about their lagging educational standards and perceptions about science and engineering.
The problem with that approach, however, is that we are critically dependent on technologies that are born out of engineering and science. Our infrastructure, for example, is highly dependent on technology. It is important for individuals to understand, at least to some degree, the physical phenomena we capitalize on for our development and survival. This is particularly important in a society where the interests of the people are supposed to be expressed through a free-market economy and democratic government. If the majority of people have poor understanding of the science behind the technologies they so heavily depend upon, they will make poor decisions. We are now faced with a number of significant challenges. We have increasing energy demands, and our primary source, fossil fuels, is running out. The global population is approaching seven billion. Many environmental issues, including global warming, loss of biodiversity and even shortages of water, press upon us. In other words, I see no reason to worry about declining science and engineering interests and understanding in America.

Administration makes changes to alcohol policy From Page 1 OSU is not alone in its struggle to combat alcohol-related problems on game days. Other Big 12 Conference universities, including the University of Colorado and the University of Oklahoma, must cope with game day drinking. Lt. Bruce Chan, who has been with the OU Police for 26 years, said alcohol does present problems on game days, but it is not the biggest concern there. Police Commander Tim McGraw of the CU-Boulder Police said alcohol remains an issue on campus for game days. McGraw, who has been with the department for 33 years, said the university stopped selling beer at the stadium because of alcohol-related problems. “(Alcohol) remains the foremost foundational issue we deal with,” McGraw said. “Virtually every assault or incident we have will involve alcohol. It’s common for alcohol to be the common denominator.” Although OSU has a noalcohol policy, there are several exceptions. And, for six to seven home games each year, campus parking lots are host to widespread drinking. The policy, which was written by the Board of Regents for Oklahoma A&M Colleges, restricts alcohol to certain areas including parking lots and grass close to parking lots around the stadium on game days. “We want to have a good game day experience where
people enjoy themselves, but we also want to do it safely and in accordance with the policies and the law,” Clark said. “I think that can be done. We’ve got to educate people and get them back hopefully to where they understand what the law and the rules are.” There are many reasons administrators and police have seen an increase in alcoholrelated problems. Director of Communication Services Gary Shutt said there are more people going to games this year. Shutt also said this year’s freshman class is the biggest it has been in 20 years. Although OSU is making changes to combat the problems, Clark said most students and tailgaters act responsibly. Brennon Dearinger, who attended OSU last year as a general education major, said he has been drinking in the tailgating experience for five years. For OSU’s Thursday night game against Texas A&M, Dearinger set up his tent at 10 a.m. He said he had to go to work until 3 p.m., but that the ice chests were filled with beer before he left for work. He said he has never had a problem with setting up so early, or drinking on campus before games. “Game days are pretty awesome on campus,” Dearinger said. Although Dearinger hasn’t had problems with OSU police, the police have had problems with underage drinking, and Dearinger has witnessed it. “Usually it’s underage drinking or people who are way too intoxicated,” Dearinger said. “About 5 minutes ago, I saw it happen. I saw about 20 people take off running. It’s pretty funny.”
BIGGER IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER
The alcohol-related problems on campus are far from a laughing matter for Clark and other administrators, however. “It appears to be a fairly significant problem,” Clark said. “We’ve had quite a number of students going into the stadium and vomiting, which creates a fairly unpleasant atmosphere for all the people around them.” The changes scheduled for the remainder of this year’s football season are only one aspect of the drive to combat underage drinking on game days. Clark said he and others have talked about implementing a social host-type rule for game day tailgaters. “It wouldn’t be an ordinance,” Clark said. “It would be more of a provision.” The Stillwater City Council heard arguments for a social host ordinance in the city and is working on establishing what has become an increasingly popular ordinance for cities throughout Oklahoma, including Edmond. Social host laws seek to punish those responsible for supplying alcohol to minors by as-

sociating the host of the party with the illegal act committed, according to socialhost.org. For OSU, implementing a social host provision might require tailgaters to obtain permits in order to set up a tent on campus, Clark said. “I think we may wish to try a social host provision that makes anyone who obtains a permit, who supplies alcohol to a minor, be criminally liable for that so that we can discourage providing alcohol to minors,” Clark said. “They would have to sign up for and basically agree that they won’t provide alcohol to minors.” Another measure that administrators have looked at implementing is a program that would allow fans to text personnel inside the stadium if fans notice an unruly fan. Associate Athletic Director Marty Sargent said there are problems preventing the school from moving forward with that project. “The problem that we’ve had here is you may not be able to get a text through,” Sargent said. “And, so that’s being worked on
right now to improve the cell usage in the stadium, primarily with texting. Once that gets in place we will revisit that.” Despite changes in the execution of the campus alcohol policy, non-offenders shouldn’t see a significant change in their game day experiences.
“You want them to have an enjoyable experience, and tailgating is part of that,” Sargent said. “You hope that if people are going to drink, they will do so reasonably and responsibly.”

Daily Horoscope By Nancy Black and Stephanie Clement Tribune Media Services (MCT) Today’s birthday (10/20/10). This year your potential to bring everything together into a beautiful, successful package is high. Handle the details. You care more than anyone else, after all. Desire meets intelligence to form just the right energetic mix. Follow your heart for best results. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) -- Today is an 8 -- You must devise a creative plan that includes your partner and other important individuals. You won’t satisfy everyone, but will provide basic needs. Taurus (April 20-May 20) -- Today is a 7 -- Your need for independence may lead to travel away from home. A friend suggests an unexpected destination that suits your mood beautifully. Gemini (May 21-June 21) -- Today is a 6 -- Rapidly developing circumstances force you to adapt to social demands. In the process, an idea transforms and you discover opportunities. Cancer (June 22-July 22) -- Today is a 7 -- If you want the spotlight today, you can have it, but only if you overcome an objection from a close associate. You can share, if you’re willing. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Today is a 6 -- What you think you want in the morning changes dramatically halfway through the day. Others offer alternatives that seem more appealing. Now you have choice. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- You want change, and you’re willing to run right out and make it. Younger people may seem inflexible on at least one point. Be patient. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- The course of love doesn’t run smooth for someone in your family. You can soothe ruffled feathers by telling jokes and being utterly silly. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Today is a 7 -- Apply your creativity to concrete problems with a sibling or neighbor. It’s better to have a great plan than to rush forward without one. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Today is a 7 -- You may need to spend money today on others. Listen to demands, and then figure out what can be done to accommodate them without breaking the budget. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Today is a 7 -- Creative requirements at home put you on notice that you’re skills are in high demand. Shop carefully for the best bargain and quality. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Today is a 7 -- You want to shout your news from the rooftops. Call the essential parties first. They deserve to know in advance. Then issue a press release. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Today is a 7 -- You don’t have to take the spotlight today. In fact, others benefit when you allow them to have their say and reserve your response for another day.
