Star freshman Wall may be ineligible to play By Ben Jones and Metz Camfield

Freshman point guard John Wall may be ineligible to play, according to an report released Thursday. According to the story, UK had been investigating Wall Wall’s eligibility for months to determine benefits Wall

may or may not have received from his former AAU coach, Brian Clifton. Clifton was a certified agent with FIBA, basketball’s international governing body for a year. Wall and Mississippi State recruit Renardo Sidney are both involved in the allegations. UK spokesman John Hayden said he had no knowledge of the ESPN report. “As far as we’re concerned, it’s a non-issue,” Hayden said. UK athletics spokesman DeWayne Peevy said in a statement released by UK athletics that all UK

student-athletes are considered eligible unless it is noted otherwise. “The University of Kentucky will not comment on the academic or eligibility status of any UK student-athlete,” Peevy said in the release. “We will continue to respect the privacy of all our student-athletes in regards to personal information.” ESPN cited an unnamed source within UK who said the school is working to determine the status of Wall’s eligibility. SEC commissioner Mike Slive told reporters on Thursday at SEC basketball media day it

is an amateurism issue. “Those are strictly amateurism issues,” Slive said. “As we told our people, somebody needs to determine if they are eligible. It’s not relative to you, it’s relative to them.” Because Clifton was an agent, any benefits Wall accepted from Clifton would be equated to being accepted from an agent and would have to be repaid before he could become eligible. NCAA rules also state that student-athletes can also be held out of 10 percent of a team’s games as part of the punishment.

NCAA rules ! If student-athlete accepts a significant amount of money — eligibility shouldn’t be received. ! If student-athlete accepts benefits from agent greater than $101 — student-athlete will have to repay money and serve a minimum suspension of 10 percent of all regular season games. ! That’s three to four games in UK’s case.


Homecoming 2009

Running, painting and comedy for Homecoming By Taylor Moak

Blue windows all over Lexington. A run “For the Kids.” Dice and casino chips. Homecoming Week 2009, “Viva Lex Vegas,” is here. Homecoming Week begins Saturday and is full of events, new and similar to last year’s Homecoming, on campus for students to celebrate university traditions. The Student Activities Board has been working on Homecoming 2009 for almost a year. SAB’s director of traditions Bryce Moffett said he has been working on Homecoming 2009 since December. “(Students will) feel more involved with campus and with the community of Lexington,” Moffett said. Thirty-nine student organizations will Paint the Town Blue on Saturday by painting a window on campus or at a local business with a “Viva Lex Vegas” theme. Moffett said the number of student organizations has increased from last year. For the Banner Competition, student organizations will design publicity banners to hang in the Johnson Center or in the W.T. Young Library. On Sunday afternoon, DanceBlue will host a 5K walk/run. Homecoming Week will include a canned food drive, a children’s carnival and a comedy competition. The Black Student Union will host a haunted house event on Thursday, Oct. 29. The Homecoming Parade will be Saturday, Oct. 31 before the UK football game against Mississippi State. Thirtyfive student organizations, the Wildcat Marching Band, the University Dance See Homecoming on page 4

Festival proves to be a success By Laura Karr

It is not everyday you see large, elaborate costumes featuring bright colors and enormous headdresses being worn by people walking around campus. The first annual ArtsAsia Festival, which began on Oct. 17, has been surprisingly successful. During the past week, UK has hosted the festival’s lectures, demonstrations and performances to exhibit Asian culture to UK students. The Kathakali performance Monday evening featured a traditional Indian dance whose elaborate costumes stunned an audience of students, faculty and members of the general public. Cecilia Wang, music education professor and an Asia Center faculty affiliate, said the festival has been a great opportunity for UK students to learn about the culture of Asia. “These eight days of Asian

fine arts events provide them with the best of Asian arts and the most respected artists in Asian music, visual arts and theater,” Wang said. The Asian Fine Arts Initiative, a group of UK faculty members commissioned to promote Asian art at the university and in Central Kentucky, established the ArtsAsia Festival. “These events are very important for students since Central Kentucky is far away from cities with a large Asian population,” Wang said. “The only way to have them interact with fine arts and artists of Asia is to bring the artists here.” This past week’s events included “The ‘Gei’ of Geisha,” which featured a lecture, videos of geisha schools and a live musical performance, giving students a closer look into the lives of Japanese geisha. “The videos help to bring it all together,” said Mary Davis, a theater freshman. “It’s one thing

While some universities give their students a fall break, UK eliminated its fall break two years ago. David Randall, professor of physiology and chair of the University Senate Council, which makes the decisions for the academic calendar, said the break did not completely disappear. Instead, additional days will be added to both Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks. “The fall break is not gone, it has just reappeared in a longer Thanksgiving break,” Randall said.

First issue free. Subsequent issues 25 cents.

Many areas of the university are considered when deciding the academic calendar, Randall said, including residence halls and dining services. Sheila Brothers, administrative coordinator in the University Senate, said the decision to cut fall break was based on numerous concerns, including students traveling late Wednesday to get home and students skipping Wednesday classes before Thanksgiving. The committee was split in making the fall break decision. Some argued students would begin skipping Tuesday, but Brothers See Breaks on page 4

When students leave campus, some lights stay on. “It blows my mind,” Martin Mudd, a UK graduate student, said. “Actually it infuriates me because I know of a simple solution.” Mudd, a Kentuckians for the Commonwealth member, joined three others in a panel discussion called “Powering UK’s Future — The Coal Plant and Beyond.” The panel included Mudd, Bob Wiseman, UK vice president of facilities, David Manni-

no, UK College of Public Health, and Nancy Reinhart, KFTC coal plant researcher. The panel was sponsored by KFTC, UK Greenthumb and Mountain Justice. “If every room on campus had motion sensor lights … when you’re gone and nobody is in the room, the lights shut off,” Mudd said. “It makes sense.” Jonathan Beam, telecommunications sophomore said the panel made him see the simplicity of saving energy, being more aware and stopping energy waste.

This summer I spent Fourth of July working, because as an intern, that's what you do on holidays; work so no one else has to. As the sun set over the Niagara River and the light touched all the red, white and blue, I didn't mind so much that I was working though. I enjoyed every second of taking picture that moment, and ended up with a photo I'm really happy with. — BRITNEY MCINTOSH

Khloe and Lamar prenup Ka-ching! They're happy now, but what if the marriage goes south? Celebrating her 29th birthday at Tao in Las Vegas October 16, Kim Kardashian was surrounded by friends and family. As DJ Reach led chants of "Kim! Kim! Kim!" only one thing was missing from the fete. Nope, not the Keeping Up With the Kardashians cameras: It was newlywed little sister Khloe who was MIA. After missing her flight, she opted to stay in California, where her hubby of less than a month, L.A. Laker Lamar Odom, 29, had suffered a leg injury during a preseason game. "They were both supposed to come," Kim told Us at the bash. "She feels really bad, but we'll have a celebration back in L.A. too." As the devoted bride, 25, stayed with her man, questions remained about her quickie - albeit lavish September 27 wedding to Odom after a 32-day courtship. Had the couple drawn up that Hollywood essential, a prenup? While a source close to the pair assured Us the document protecting Odom's $83 million in earnings was in place before the wedding, details of the big-bucks agreement are just now coming to light.

Sealing The Deal If the marriage (the wedding airs on E!'s Kardashians November 8) goes bad, Khloe won't be broke. In the event of a split, Odom's $33Êmillion, four-year contract with the -Lakers will not be considered community prop-

erty. Instead, he'll pay $500,000 for each year of marriage. He'll also provide her with a luxury car each time its lease expires. According to, Khloe, who earns $5,000 per episode for Kourtney and Khloe take Miami and $15,000 an episode for Kardashians, was also negotiating for $15,000-a-month alimony, possession of their new mansion, $6,000 a month for shopping and beauty, and courtside Lakers seats for her family. "She just wants to protect her interests," says a friend.

Hands-on Mom The mission was accomplished thanks to hardball negotiations by her mom and business manager, Kris Jenner, 53. "Both sides were pushing for a prenup, but Kris has been handling it all," says a second source. Offers another, "Kris was the holdup. She rejected offers from Lamar's lawyers." Odom's camp, says a source, "is trying to protect his family." He supports his two children with ex-girlfriend Liza Morales and, says an Odom source, "takes care of a lot of people." (Odom's lawyer could not be reached.) Oblivious to the legal wrangling? The happy couple, who are about to make an offer on a house. "Khloe and Lamar haven't spoken of the prenup once, literally," says the pal. "Khloe doesn't believe it will ever be used. She's head over heels." COPYRIGHT 2008 US WEEKLY

Leaving the competition in their wake UK swimming and diving has speed, experience in their favor this season By Brandon Mattingly

The UK swimming and diving teams are going to let you know who they are. Some of the fastest swimmers in the country can be found at UK. A gold medalist, another Olympian and the owner of one of the 50 fastest butterfly times in the world are included on UK’s 2009-10 men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams. Gary Connelly has been the swimming head coach at UK since 1991 and said this is one of the better women’s teams he has had. He gave even higher praise to what the men’s team could accomplish this season. “This could potentially be our best men’s team ever,” Connelly said. Those are high accolades for a team that finished in the top 20 in the NCAA Championships last season. Elvis Burrows is a fifth-year senior who represented the Bahamas in the 2008 Olympic Games as well as this past year’s World Games. Burrows has the 44th fastest men’s 50butterfly time in the world. He currently holds the team record in the butterfly, surpassing fellow fifth-year senior and AllAmerican, Warren Grobbelaar. Connelly regards both swimmers as among the best

sprint butterfliers in the nation. Senior leader Kyle Greene led the team with All-American honors in four events as a junior and is looking to continue a leadership role with fellow seniors Burrows, Grobbelaar and Eric McGinnis. McGinnis comes into the season on an emotional high after winning a gold medal in this past summer’s World University Games. He was on a team that took gold in the men’s 4x100 freestyle relay. “That was definitely the biggest thing that I’ve ever been a part of,” McGinnis said. “Bringing a gold medal to the United States was something real special.” Junior Tyler Reed is one of the premier men’s 200-freestylers in the country and credits much of his success to Connelly. “Training under Gary has been a huge benefit as he was also a 200-freestyler and an Olympian and can give insights many others can't,” Reed said. The women’s team does not have as much depth as the men’s team but they do have a solid balance of experience and young talent. Senior Megan Pulskamp and junior Chatham Penrod are looking to make their third appearances at the NCAA Championships. Junior Jenna Newsome and sophomore Kelsi Hall have gotten off to hot starts this season and should be in the running for NCAA berths this year as well. Many swimmers on the women’s side have had to expand their roles because of a lack of depth. Junior Kayla Sergesketter is a prime example. When Sergesketter arrived at UK, she

Now, as a junior, she has been asked to take on events of all distances. Connelly commended her ability to take on any task. “She is probably the hardest worker in practice on the team,” Connelly said. “She’s willing to swim pretty much any event we throw her into and she’ll do a real good job with it.” With all the success of the swimming

Women’s soccer flounders on senior night By Nick Craddock

Mississippi spoiled the send-off of four UK players by hammering the Cats 4-1 Thursday on senior night at the UK Soccer Complex. The emotional charge provided by seniors Katie Fahey, Julie Hull, Ashley Stack and Stefani Kildare was not enough for UK (5-8-4, 2-6-1 Southeastern Conference) to halt Ole Miss’ (11-3-2, 5-1-2 SEC) proficient attack and dominance in possession. “I warned the team before the game that senior night wastes a lot of emotion before you get on the field and we lost focus of what really matters,” said UK head coach Jon Lipsitz. “We have to be honest that we didn’t play well, and we have to be honest that we lost to a better team.” The game was bittersweet for Fahey, who looked visibly somber after the game, which has put UK’s hopes of reaching the SEC Tournament in jeopardy. The Cats have two away games remaining — against Mississippi State on Sunday, before traveling to Nashville, Tenn., to take on Vanderbilt on Oct. 30. UK needs to finish in the top eight in the SEC to qualify for the postseason. “We’re going to have to win our (final) two games,” Fahey said. “We have to throw this game out the window and go out like we’ve never played before.” The Cats’ poor performance began early, as they turned in a lackluster first half getting outshot 11-1, with their only shot coming from a weak header via freshman defender Brooke Keyes. UK managed to show a little more life in the second half, but a goal from Ole Miss’ Dylan Jordan and a pair of goals from Hannah Weatherly demonstrated Ole Miss’ class.

team, diving is a work in progress for UK after former diving coach Mike Lyden died in 2008. Ted Hautau is in his second season as the diving coach at UK and has the task of rebuilding a diving team that consists of only two men and one woman. “Our goal is to be a top 20 team in the country in both (men’s and women’s diving),” Connelly said. “The men I think really have the capability to really start to push toward the top 10 level.”

The consolation prize for UK came in the form of junior forward Laura Novikoff’s converted penalty kick in the 66th minute. Ole Miss concluded their five-game road trip unbeaten with their victory Thursday night. “Today we came out and did not have that edge,” Lipsitz said. “We got punished by a very well-coached and very talented team.”

SG’s proposed senate reform beneficial for UK’s campus ! KERNEL EDITORIAL Student Government is trying to look like a real government. No, this is not a slight at SG, but rather pointing out SG’s proposed move to eliminate the senator-at-large position. Taking a page from the U.S. government, SG is taking a proactive step to ensure the students are represented proportionally and sorted by territory, or in this case, field of study. Instead of having the willing, popular kids designated to represent the student body, the current 40 senator seats would be distributed amongst the colleges with a seat being added for the College of Public Health. “The goal is to represent the student body based on proportion,” said Falon

Thacker, College of Arts and Sciences senator. According to a Thursday, Oct 22 Kernel article, the proposal would go before a full Senate, which then must have 75 percent of its members approve the amendment twice before it is passed. This proposal probably should have been in place a while ago, but now that it is here, it must be seriously considered and passed. Currently, senators-at-large focus too broadly and instead of having a specific set of issues and an area of focus, they are supposed to represent a vast section of students. SG needs any initiative that proposes to level the playing field. Still, more reform is needed beyond just assigning Senate seats to colleges. Such a change will not

eliminate apathy students feel toward SG. Last election, the two Arts and Sciences senators won with 507 and 455 votes, respectively. The largest college in the university only needs 500 people to vote and the entire student body has its opinion represented by less than one-fifth of campus. Voter apathy isn't a problem just for the senate seats either. SG President Ryan Smith was elected by earning about 49 percent of the total vote, or 2286 of 4677 votes. Ideally, every UK student would care about SG, but the current system boasts a borderline dynasty at the top and it traditionally has been run by a small portion of the campus. Additionally, perception is turning into reality and the Greek system and a hand-

SG can put more power back in the hands of the students, but it is incumbent upon students to take advantage of the proposal. Some of the apathy can be attributed to the system but students must be willing to step in and bring about change. Go to SG Senate meetings. Be sure to find out who the candidates are within your college and express your ideas, frustrations and concerns to your representative.

This may be about SG reform but it is just as much about student reform as well. SG is giving students the opportunity to have more influence. Now, if this proposal passes, the students must take the next step and show them it was worth it. Nothing is wrong with motivated individuals using SG as an outlet for their spirit, but UK needs to broaden its student leadership base. The Senate must examine the proposal with more focus on the university as a whole than with their own interests in mind. Changing the electoral system on the Senate level would be a fitting start. Arming each college with its own munition of influence will go a long way to balancing the scales, but the system still needs a major overhaul that starts from within.

Students reaping negative attention from irresponsibility My grandmother was, among many things, a cornucopia of wisdom, the likes of which I have yet to encounter anywhere else. In addition to the many virtues and sayings she taught me during the 13 years I had with her, she taught me that you reap what you sow. In other words, what you do now is going to have a profound effect on what happens and what you experience at a latZAC er date—whether that date is KISER a minute or ten years from Kernel now.  columnist This is a lesson I wish the general student body here at UK would learn, for we have and are continuing to sow bad seeds, and it is about time for the harvest. We all know that the hot button issue this semester, besides the tobacco ban, is the student housing proposal, which is currently before the Urban County Council. Everyone in town seems to have an opinion on this issue, and no group is more outspoken than the students here from our university. But in all our protest, letters to the editor and

marches to city hall, have we really thought about why such a proposal would even be suggested … multiple times? What would cause the community atlarge, who welcome students into their subdivisions and neighborhoods year after year, to suddenly yank up the welcome mat and demand our eviction? The answer is simple, yet devastating. We as a student body have done everything we can to wear out our welcome and alienate the city that has taken care of us and our university for over 100 years. This is not something that happened over night, or even over the course of a semester. It has been a gradual process, something that has festered over the years, a malignancy that has finally reached the point of disruption.  One need only drive down State Street or Aylesford Place on a Sunday morning to see a piece of what I am talking about. Neighborhoods that are clean and quiet during the week turn into a demilitarized zone on the weekends, looking like the back streets in a former Soviet republic at the end of said weekend.  It’s not just the incessant and excessive partying that has helped us wear out our welcome in the community. If that was the

case what we are experiencing now would have happened a long time ago. One need only look at the Lexington Herald-Leader or in the pages of the Kernel, to see the mass amounts of violent crimes, vandalism and arrests that some of our fellow students are accessories or even the main participants in. 

We as a student body have done everything we can to wear out our welcome and alienate the city that has taken care of us and this university for over 100 years. Would you want to live in a neighborhood or even within 10 houses of people whose weekend parties keep you up at night, or whose fights with their girlfriends or boyfriends always end in yelling or police intervention? I know I wouldn’t. And anyone else who is honest with themselves wouldn’t want to either. If this scenario is true, then how can we blame the Lexington residents for wanting us out of their neighborhoods or at least to thin

Most people may not be able to walk a mile in a cancer patient's shoes, but the Student Activities Board and DanceBlue want the Lexington community to run five kilometers to help keep children with cancer in the race. On Sunday, SAB and DanceBlue will host their 14th Annual 5K Run/Walk as part of Homecoming week to benefit children battling cancer. Early registration is $12, registration the day of the race is $16 and all proceeds go to DanceBlue, where the funds are given to the pediatric oncology unit at UK Hospital. “Our whole cause and our whole reason for doing this is for the kids,” said Jaclyn Hawkins, campus marketing coordinator for DanceBlue. DanceBlue will donate half of the money raised from the event to cancer research at UK, while the other half will be split between nurses at an after-effects clinic that cares for children after chemotherapy treatments and social workers for the children. Bryce Moffett, director of traditions for SAB, said Dance Blue and SAB hosted separate 5K events in the past, but four years ago the two merged.

Hawkins said DanceBlue was fortunate to have the support of SAB, which foots the bill for planning and hosting the run. She said SAB's assistance helps DanceBlue focus on its mission in helping children with cancer. “(DanceBlue) is focused on the 24hour event, but we want to do things year round to keep the focus on the kids,” Hawkins said. She said having an event and fundraiser early in the year would help spread the word about DanceBlue among new students and people throughout Lexington. Hawkins added that having the support of other student organizations such as SAB would help DanceBlue achieve that goal. Hawkins ran in the race last year and saw a great turnout from individual students, student organizations and people in the community. “There were some die-hard runners from Lexington,” Hawkins said. “It was so funny because we were like, ‘Oh my gosh, that old man is lapping us!’ ” DanceBlue has received support from John's Run Walk Shop, which will be officiating the race, and from Second Sunday. Moffett said medals will be given to the top three male runners and the top

three female runners, and the top three runners from each age group will be recognized. Participants can fill out early registration forms on the SAB Web site, or at John’s Run Walk Shop between 4 p.m and 7 p.m. on Friday. Registration and check-in begins at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday at Gate 3 of Commonwealth Stadium, and the race begins at 3 p.m.

Team and President Lee Todd and First Lady Patsy Todd will make appearances. The Homecoming King and Queen will be announced at halftime of the game. Voting for the Homecoming King and Queen will begin at noon on Monday and continue until noon on Friday. The five king candidates are Shaun Denney, Justin Linne, Calvin Riney, Dwight “D.J.” Lacy and Ben Duncan. The five queen candidates are Ashley Jackson, Barb Jackson, Katie Wilkerson, Autumn Abraham and Dana Deptola. Moffett said Homecoming Week is a unique experience every time. “(Students can) see the spirit of Wildcat country,” Moffett said. “It’s fun to see what students can accomplish working together.”

said Andrew Maske, UK Asian art professor and member of the Asian Fine Arts Initiative. Maske said due to a high level of attention gained by the festival throughout campus and Lexington, more students than expected participated. “We have been thrilled with the response and the size of the crowds,” Maske said. The Festival concludes Saturday with an interactive workshop on Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement, at 1:00 p.m., and “East Meets West,” a concert by Hong Kong composer C.C. Leung with the UK Symphony Orchestra and UK Chorale at the Singletary Center for the Arts at 7:30 p.m.

“I thought Martin (Mudd) had a lot of really good comments that we could do that are very easy,” Beam said. More than 100 people gathered in the Student Center on Thursday evening. The attendance showed UK is moving toward change, said Jessica Barnett, integrated strategic communications sophomore. The panelists said the campus needs to start using more natural gas and less coal. “We have to move away from coal,“ Mudd said. “The way to do that is going to be through common sense techniques combined with genius engineering methods.” The panelists said while waiting, there are some small things the public can do that will make a big difference in conservation, like turning lights off when leaving a room. However, they said it could

our numbers in residential neighborhoods? The gripe I hear among my fellow students is that we are not treated as adults, that we are not given any respect by those older than us. But the question is, do we act like adults? Do we deserve respect? Yes, I realize that these behaviors aren’t indicative of the entire student body, but it is a large enough percentage to where it has become a noticeable problem. We as a student community need to begin to repair our image and our ties with the community. It is imperative that we do whatever it takes to show the Lexington community that we want to be productive and positive members of the community.  It may be too late for us to stop the housing proposal but it is never too late to begin to make amends for past transgressions. Maybe in two to three years, we can make enough of an impact to be welcomed back into the community with open arms . Yet if we continue down the path we are on, too prideful to admit our mistakes, then we as a university student community will surely reap what we have sown so much of. Zac Kiser is a biology junior.

said the decision is meant to keep students from missing class and missing the holidays with their families. Freida Eggleton, chair of the calendar committee at Western Kentucky University, said every institution makes calendar decisions based on their individual campus culture and needs. Eggleton said WKU has a two-day fall break, as well as a Thanksgiving and winter break, which is equivalent to the length of UK's. However, WKU’s classes run five minutes longer than UK's typical 50-minute and 75-minute classes. Bruce Manley in the Communications, Publications and Transfer Equivalency department of the Office of the Registrar said UK classes should meet 800 minutes based on a 16-

week semester, “As long as the courses are meeting for the required time, then breaks can be scheduled around that,” Manley said. Scott Burks, director of Student Records and Registration at the University of Louisville, said their fall break has been in effect for the past 10 years. Their fall break was initiated by student demands to have a full week off every semester. Students argued they already had one full week off for spring break and they needed more down time in the fall semester, he said. Randall said the University Senate started an initiative two years ago to lengthen fall break to one full week. However, if students were to have a full week fall break, they would be paying the same amount of tuition but for fewer days in the classroom, Randall said. “This would have cost students more in tuition by cutting instructional days by two or three days,” he said.


KFTC researcher Nancy Reinhart, KFTC member Martin Mudd, director of physical facilities Bob Wiseman and public health professor Dave Mannino answer questions during “Powering UK’s Future — The Coal Plant and Beyond” in room 206 of the Student Center Thursday evening. be a while before this is accomplished. “I think in two to three years we have the potential to see some major

changes in our whole energy policy,” Wiseman said. “I think we’ll have a tighter permit and tighter restrictions.”

Q&A with Sam Maxwell In his senior year, the linebacker has become a force for the Cats


Senior linebacker Sam Maxwell has become a trash-talking playmaker at linebacker for the Cats in 2009. By Ben Jones

Q. You’ve had quite the breakout season so far. You’ve made

36 tackles and you’re leading the team with seven passes defended. What do you attribute your success to?

A. The coaches really believing in me for the first thing, the

players also are seeing what I can do. I’m a very composed guy, knowing what I’m capable of doing. And I’m a very vocal guy, so keeping everybody on the same page and having everybody talking and communicating has helped.


You know, I’ve noticed that you’re one of the bigger talkers out there on the team. Are you trying to keep everybody aware of what’s going on the field or are you trash-talking out there on the field?

A. I do trash-talking, I do it all. I’m talking because that’s

the kind of person I am. If I’m not talking, I just don’t feel right. I cannot just sit there. I’ve tried to be like “I’m not going to say anything today,” but when it gets to the bottom of it I’m back talking. I have to be talking trash or letting everybody else know what they’re doing or asking questions. I have to talk during the plays.


Who are the other big trash-talkers out on the field?

A. Alabama has a lot of trash-talkers, Louisville has some

here and there. But everybody talks trash out there to each other, it just depends on how you and the guy playing against you are doing. Whoever is winning at the time has the bragging rights, so it’s going to go back and forth the whole game.

Q. Who’s the toughest guy you’ve ever had to tackle? A: I would say (UK senior fullback) John Conner. He’s so solid. Most guys will make a move and give you an angle to hit, but he’s just straight here and straight at you. No angle and no legs, you have to get into him. It’s John Conner.


As a linebacker, what’s your favorite thing to do? Do you like to rush the passer, drop into coverage or make the big hit on the running back?

A. I like stopping the power roll. I love it — the physical

contact. It’s just a powerful play people run to get one or two yards, just to run the clock out or to be moving the ball. It’s not supposed to be a big yardage play, it’s just supposed to be there to grind it out.


You’ve been in the right place at the right time a lot this year, and you’ve had some big plays. Why are you always the guy there?

A. Focusing on the little things and knowing my assign-

ment. It’s just good coaching and me with all my experience putting it together at the right time.


What was the locker room like after the Auburn win? We could hear you through the walls. A: Pandemonium. We were going crazy. It was a big moment for Coach (Rich) Brooks to go on the road in the SEC and win against a big team like that. Those games are very hard, and for us to pull it off in a stadium like that was a big thing. We know that because of the way our season is and because we already had our bye week, every game is going to be big. This game is going to be a big game. So we knew we had to get our celebrating out in the locker room because after that it was back to work.
