Cats get revenge on ‘Dawgs’
By Kelsey Caudill firstname.lastname@example.org
William T. Young Library buzzed with ideas Friday as the campus community spoke of leadership, ambition and passion: qualities it envisions in UK’s next president. Members of the Presidential Search Committee polled students, faculty and staff to find out what they are seeking in the next person who takes the helm at UK. Student suggestions included keeping education a top priority, emphasizing the arts and humanities, increasing student involvement on campus and improving retention rates. “I think the top characteristic is to be passionate about our school and our state and the improvement of both,” journalism junior Morgan Rose said. “I think that action follows passion because if you’re passionate about something, you’re going to be motivated to effect change.” A group of UK law students came to the forum to ensure that the new facility they hope to receive in the future remains atop the next president’s agenda. “It’s a great school, but the building doesn’t quite meet that standard,” first-year law student Lauren Biggs said. “Since there’s a change in administration we want to make sure that the new building remains a top priority.” Although some students braved the cold weather to attend the forum, the majority of the student body voiced their concerns online. Wildcat Student TV provided live streaming video so that students could respond directly to the panel regardless of their locations. Moderator Tom Harris, associate vice president

Patterson school starts iPad trial By Nicole Schladt firstname.lastname@example.org
An 18-month trial exploring the use of Apple’s iPad in higher education is underway at the University of Kentucky’s Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce. This trial marks the first time the iPad will be used by every student and faculty member within a professional graduate program. Currently, 38 students in the Patterson School will receive iPads through the trial, with another 35 from the 2011 incoming class joining over the next several months. “The real example this sets is for professional schools,” retired Ambassador and Patterson School Director Carey Cavanaugh said. “If this trial works, it should work for the business and law schools here at UK and around the world.” Cavanaugh hopes that incorporating the iPad into the Patterson
School will prepare graduates for diplomacy and international business in the digital world. The idea to launch a technology initiative within the Patterson School came to Cavanaugh last summer after he viewed a film that emphasized the significance of technology during elections in Iran. “[The film] made it clear to me how important digital technology will be with international politics in the future,” Cavanaugh said. He wrote a letter to Apple headquarters suggesting the iPad trial, and within weeks planning was underway. Apple is providing iPad technical assistance and training throughout the trial. Apple experts will also be working closely with UK’s software development team to determine ways in which iPad applications can be adapted to facilitate use in the classroom. Several other indi-

Impressive. Then complacent. That’s the transition UK (16-4, 4-2 SEC) made during the course of its 66-60 win over Georgia (14-6, 3-4) that avenged a loss earlier in the season. In the first half, it was clear which team had been preparing for this game with a week off (that would be UK) and which was coming off a double-overtime loss (that would be Georgia). On top of that was the team and the crowd gearing up to avenge the Jan. 8 loss. With those factors at play, UK forced three early turnovers and two misses while racing to a 14-4 lead. “I remember at one point we had all five of us in defensive stance, clapping, the crowd’s into it,” senior forward Josh Harrellson said. That scene was a contrast to the first meeting between these two teams, when Georgia “manhandled.” But UK responded with a physical performance. In the first half, Darius Miller epitomized the shift when he took to the air, trying to dunk over two Georgia defenders. The ball came loose and he was fouled, but Harrellson nearly tackled him afterward applauding the effort. “I just had an open lane, really,” Miller said, who finished with 14 points and seven rebounds. “We’ve been trying to finish at the rim, so I just tried to finish at the rim.” UK sustained its play through the rest of the first half, slicing open Georgia’s 3-2 zone, which Georgia head coach Mark Fox said was played too long because of foul issues. UK sliced it open with drives and kicks in building a 39-24 lead. “What I liked was we got the ball in the middle, we made the pass, we swung the ball and we knocked down the open shot,” UK head coach John Calipari said. The play to close the first half, though, could have served as an omen: Gerald Robinson streaked 92 feet in seven seconds to put up a buzzer-beating layup attempt. Eloy Vargas, going for the block, tipped it in for him. And in the second half, Georgia started coming back as UK started missing shots. UK made 51.7 percent of its shots in the first half, compared to 31.8 percent in the second half. “We came out (in the second half) playing like we already won,” freshman forward Terrence Jones said after scoring seven points and grabbing seven rebounds. “They came back and got into it little by little. We started settling for threes.” Added Harrellson: “I just think we get comfortable. We were up 10, 12 points and got comfortable out there. Took our foot off the gas and See BBALL on page 2
Family, alums present for Georgia game By Aaron Smith email@example.com
DeAndre Liggins’ eyes glanced off the court at times. His mind wandered away from the basketball games. It was because he had seven family members — his mother, who was watching her son play for the first time since his freshman year, along with two sisters and four cousins — in the stands. “Oh my god. I was just looking at her
while I was playing and kind of lost focus,” Liggins said. “I was happy to see her and got kind of emotional. I’m just happy they came.” Liggins seemed to play with some extra aggressiveness, driving the lane more often and hoisting up shots. He scored 11 points on 3-for-10 shooting and got to the free-throw line eight times. “I was jacked up. Of course I was See JUDD on page 2

Martin stays on coaching staff By Nick Craddock firstname.lastname@example.org

Director of Graduate studies Evan Hillebrand and national security graduate student Matt Longacre work with ipads designated for the Patterson School of Diplomacy.
Amid speculation that UK wide receivers coach Tee Martin would be leaving his job for a position at a n o t h e r school, UK head coach Joker Phillips announced Saturday that Martin had been signed Martin to a contract extension and will assume the added title of passing game coordinator.
Newsroom: 257-1915 Advertising: 257-2872 First issue free. Subsequent issues 25 cents.
“I’m elated, so emotional and so excited about the feeling of being wanted,” Martin said. “The work begins here and I look forward to it.” Martin said that some schools–which he would not name–did express interest in hiring him, but that no formal interviews took place. “I remained loyal to my boss, and the moment I heard something, he heard something,” Martin said. Although Martin will be given a new title, much of his job description will remain the same. Phillips and offensive coordinator and quarterbacks

coach Randy Sanders, who Martin played for during his collegiate career at Tennessee, had already discussed expanding Martin’s duties throughout the season. For Phillips, keeping Martin on staff and staving off the “piranhas” interested in luring him away was a key to continuing his vision of building a championship contender at UK. “(Martin) is a guy who will be a coordinator in time, he will be a guy who is running his own program soon,” Phillips said. “We felt that for him to continue to progress his career, it was time for us to Opinions.............3 Sports..................4 Sudoku................2
give him the title of passing game coordinator.” In addition to the new title Martin will receive, he will also be receiving a pay raise, though Phillips would not specify the details of the contract. Phillips said shelling out the extra money was worth it considering the “huge impact” Martin had in his first year in Lexington. “We do what we have to do to keep our coaching staff intact,” Phillips said, who also thanked UK athletic director Mitch Barnhart for his commitment to building the UK football program.

The Presidential Search Committee met Friday afternoon to discuss feedback from the forums. The nuts and bolts of the selection process are also being finalized, such as whether or not candidates’ names will be kept confidential throughout the search process. The committee made the motion that all the names of the presidential candidates will be kept confidential until

Applications such as PressReader, created by NewspaperDirect Inc., provide students with over 1,700 full-content newspapers from

missed all seven shot attempts. “Today we changed it up and didn’t let (Thompkins) get in the groove,” said Terrence Jones, who split the assignment with Harrellson. “I just wanted to keep my hands straight up and make shots difficult for him.” Still, the end of the game was sloppy for UK. Up seven with a minute to go, Darius Miller was called for a fivesecond inbounding violation with four timeouts available.
UK got a stop, and on the ensuing inbounds play Miller got it in – but then Knight fell out of bounds, giving the ball back. UK ended up making enough free throws to stave off any desperation comeback, but it got closer than UK wanted. “We easily left ourselves in a position that we could have dropped this,” Calipari said. “There was no reason for that. We had this game in hand.”
three to five finalists are chosen. Those names will then be released if all of the finalists agree to it. Debate centered on whether the Board of Trustees should release one preferred candidate to the campus before it announces the new president. Therefore, the preferred candidate would meet the UK community before being offered the position rather than being presented to the university as the new hire. The committee could not reach a unanimous decision on introducing a preferred candidate to the campus, but it did agree to keep candidate names confidential until the finalists are chosen. Both of these motions will be voted on by the Board of Trustees at its Feb. 22 meeting. “It will be good to get the
input from all the board members,” Student Government President Ryan Smith said. “Whatever process attracts the best candidates is the one I’m going to support.” Smith, a graduate student, and political science and predentistry junior Taylor Cox are the only students on the Presidential Search Committee. Smith said that he thinks they have “a really good grasp for what student priorities are right now,” but that they are still seeking further feedback. “Taylor Cox and I are trying our best to make ourselves as available as possible to students, and if they have any input or suggestions, they can stop by the student government office. I would encourage people to take an active role in the process,” Smith said.
around the world. “[Our students will] have daily access to over 1,000 newspapers,” Cavanaugh said. “If we had students from Iceland, they could read 11 newspapers from Iceland. We think it will really change things in the classroom.” Other applications such as Teleprompt+ by Bombing Brain Interactive will allow Patterson School students to prepare and deliver speeches using a teleprompter on the iPad. “We’re hoping apps like these can enhance the classroom experience,” Chase Cavanaugh, a first year Patterson School student, said.
Andrew Betson, another first year Patterson School student, agrees. “The iPad basically provides you with all of your reading consolidated in one portable device,” Betson said. “It’s also a nice one-stop shop for social networking and email.” Students and faculty will also be documenting the full 18-month trial online at http://ipad.uky.edu.
Jack Givens, Perry Stevenson and Ramon Harris all attended the game, as well as former football players Keenan Burton and Wesley Woodyard (who was the “Y” at center court). Also in the stands was Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown and actress/superfan Ashley Judd. When the media went into the locker room, Judd
was finishing up a conversation with Terrence Jones at his locker. “She was just explaining what she did to become an actress,” Jones said. “I was asking because I told her I wanted to be the next Rick Fox (a former professional basketball player who went into acting after his playing career), so she was giving me some pointers and tips.”

A gym-goer’s plea to campus

Recently, while walking into the Johnson Center, I became immediately aware of all the people who — prior to Dec. 31, specifically — had never stepped foot into a gym in their lives. And if they did, it was merely to prove that they were not among the varied classes of “lazy” people, but rather those who simply “didn’t have enough time” to go to the gym regularly. We all know these people. The ones who put on a brand new pair of Nikes and a spandex suit only to traverse the rugged terrain of a running track RACHAEL for two laps, and then quit after whiny WYLIE Contributing complaints about a “sprained ankle.” Or the people who spend an inordinate columnist amount of money on lifting gloves (and, therefore, leg braces) so they can squat 10 pounds until the first drop of sweat hits the floor signaling for the time to “call it quits” and go home. Or, what about the girl on the elliptical who’s reading the collector’s edition of “Twilight” while she slowly and carelessly glides on the zero-inclined machine that’s periodically beeping, telling her to move faster. These are the people that we serious gym-goers try to avoid at all costs. (And by “serious gym-goers,” I mean people who actually go to the gym to sweat and get what’s subjectively called “a good workout.”) It’s hard to sympathize with those people who have the time to dedicate to the gym and the physical capacity to work out, but chose to recreate their living room coziness by taking up space on equipment that’s being waited on. Sympathy, actually, isn’t at all the word that comes to mind. Adjectives such as impatient, infuriated and judgmental — usually in that order — are all appropriate. It’s fair to be judgmental of those who should be, by now, knowledgeable of what the functions of a gym are really like, and respectful of the people who are (often times violently)
trying to work around them. You lackluster gym-goers can be, should be and are being judged by those of us who are vigorously running to 50 Cent and lifting weights until our whole body aches in accomplishment. You lackluster gym-goers have had your chance. You’ve had countless new years to prove your abilities to work out effectively, and have instead chosen to do nothing more than get in the way of those of us who are trying our best to maximize the free time we’ve dedicated to physical activity. With that being said, there are many people who, this New Year’s, made a vow to themselves to try something new — to work out and be physically in shape. For those of you who are still dragging yourselves around to gyms around town, trying to maintain some level of motivation, know that it gets easier. If it hasn’t already become a routine for you, it eventually will. Here on campus we have many programs that are designed to help first time gym-goers reach their desired goals for physical fitness. We have classes, groups, weekend retreats (ask Johnson Center workers) and intramural team sports designed to make fitness fun and enjoyable. Personal trainers and workout programs are available for all body types, along with many experienced athletes who are always willing to help people who are “first-timers” trying to get the hang of the often times complex machines. You, my friends, deserve a pat on the back for stepping up and trying to make a difference in yourself. Jumping into workouts head-first with good intentions and drive is a positive thing that should be commended. It’s hard. If it wasn’t, it’d be called going to the movies. The drive that manifests itself in the gym is often times a precursor to the drive and ambition we have in other areas of life. You don’t want to be the person who idly stands by while watching others achieve their goals — to succeed physically (and mentally) you need to try…hard. Rachael Wylie is an English senior.

Cats’ closing ability coming into question NICK CRADDOCK
Kernel columnist These Cats are Weebles, the popular children’s toy from the 1980s—they wobble, but they don’t fall down. First, the question was whether these youthful Cats could win on the road. That was answered with a 67-58 win in South Carolina one week ago. Now the major question seems to be whether these Cats can close out games effectively after wobbling down the stretch for the second straight game, this time staving off Georgia’s furious comeback attempt. “We easily put ourselves in a position where we could’ve dropped this and there’s no reason for that,”
UK men’s basketball head coach John Calipari said of UK’s 66-60 win over Georgia. “We had this game in hand.” The operative word in Calipari’s statement is “had.” The Cats’ largest lead, 17, came late in Saturday’s first half—arguably the Cats’ most energetic and well-executed half of the season—but they could never rekindle the form they found in the opening 20 minutes coming out of the locker room. In fact, without the first half UK probably wouldn’t have had the same luck in withstanding yet another late charge, one week removed from a similar situation in Columbia, S.C. against the Gamecocks. “Kentucky came out of the gate so strong that we were playing catch up the whole night,” Georgia head coach Mark Fox said. “We just couldn’t finish enough
plays to get back all the way in it.” What might’ve helped the Cats more were the absolutely horrid offensive performances of Georgia’s top-two scorers entering the game, Trey Thompkins and Travis Leslie, who finished a combined 2-for-17 from the field in the game, but it was also a confluence of factors. It was a lack of toughness inside in the second half as Georgia out-rebounded the Cats 27-17 in the half. It was the inability to make clutch free throws down the stretch as the Cats clanked front ends of oneand-one situations at the freethrow line. It was mental errors by the Cats, such as the turnovers on back-to-back inbounds plays within the final minute, that could’ve resulted in much worse had UK junior DeAndre Liggins not bailed out his team by forcing Geor-
gia into miscues on their resulting possessions. And it’s those kind of plays from Liggins and the rest of the upperclassmen that UK needs on a regular basis to avoid slipping into a pattern of biting their nails during the final minutes of games. “This team has to be about Darius (Miller), DeAndre and Josh (Harrellson), they’re juniors and seniors, it’s got to be about them,” Calipari said. “It’s what they accept, what they expect and they have to be the guys making plays down the stretch, not (the) freshmen.” Miller acknowledged that the veterans weren’t making the plays necessary to close the games. “I don’t really think we did it today, and that’s part of the reason that they had the comeback and had a chance to win,” Miller said. “I think we have mental letdowns re-
Forum to promote cultural tolerance By Joy Priest firstname.lastname@example.org
Are all Muslims extremists? Is “Allah” the same as “God”? Are Catholics just drunk Protestants? Questions like these, among others, will be addressed on Monday night at the Cultural Tolerance Forum put on by the Cats Den. For Corey Kirby, although it is sometimes uncomfortable, this forum is absolutely necessary on campus. Kirby, events coordinator for this program, got the idea for the forum after taking a course at UK in the fall of 2010 entitled: “Muslims in Modern Society.” The class focused on the effects media had on Islamic culture in America and illuminated a society that harbors misconceptions about religions and cultures such
as Judaism, Buddhism and Arab culture. “I thought, after taking that class, it was such a major issue,” Kirby said. “Especially in Kentucky and on campus. I decided we had all these different groups on campus dealing with those issues, and it would be a good idea to bring them together and have them talk about what they face, and for students to hear about this.” Kirby realized that for some, their religion is their culture, and what was originally the “Religious” Tolerance Forum became the “Cultural” Tolerance Forum. Groups to be represented Monday night include the Muslim Student Association, the Catholic Newman Center and Hillel – the Jewish student organization on campus.
“We definitely need (tolerance) in the US, because it is a multi-cultural country, and we need to learn how to respect others’ ideas and religions. We are human and this is the basic idea we have to accept and love,” Haneen Al-Dabbagh, from the Muslim Student Association, said. Kirby shares this opinion with Haneen about the media’s effect on how Americans perceive other religions and cultures. She has a reason for bringing this information to students. “If people don’t go seek the knowledge, particularly with Islamic culture in America, they’re not going to find it,” Kirby said. “You have to go actively looking.” The Cultural Tolerance Forum will take on a presentation format, in which each group
representative will speak on common misconceptions about their religions. This will be followed by a Q-and-A session between representatives and students in attendance. “I’ve asked the representatives to talk about stereotypes they face either through the Internet or media,” Kirby said. “My goal is that students will learn about issues these different groups face they may have been unaware of before.” In line with Kirby’s hopes for the program, Hillel president, Solange Minstein, hopes to address different questions people have about Judaism and to dispel certain prejudices associated with it. The Cultural Tolerance Forum will take place at 6 p.m. Monday at the Cats Den in the Student Center.
ally, we get up on a team like that and we don’t feel like the game is over, but we play like the game is over and we definitely can’t do that, especially not in this league.” Going forward, the Cats
can’t relax and merely toy with opponents after building big leads. At least not at a time when they are the basketball version of Weebles— so far, they’ve wobbled, but they’ve won.
