‘SNL’ star Meyers performing Monday

Winning streak now at 50 games

SAB chose him because he’s ‘relevant’ to college crowd

By Sam Rothbauer

UK (26-1, 12-0 SEC) showed no signs of sevenday rust in their 77-62 victory over Ole Miss Saturday at Rupp Arena. “It’s the best Kentucky team we’ve played in my six years,” Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy said. “And that’s saying something.” Saturday’s victory marked 50 straight home wins for UK, and the Cats continuing their 18-game win streak this season. “They are a tough team; they deserve to be No. 1 in the country,” Ole Miss forward Murphy Holloway said. “We just came out here to compete.” Off to a slow start, UK committed back-to-back turnovers to start the game. But the Cats picked up the pace and intensity to control the ball and take an early lead after Ole Miss scored the first bucket of the game. UK led 15-5 with 15:07 to play in the half after a 3-pointer from sophomore guard Doron Lamb. “They were giving us that shot, versus letting us get near the rim,” UK head coach John Calipari said. “In the middle of the zone, they were not giving us the lob to Anthony Davis.” The Rebels fought back to close the gap to two, trailing 24-22 with 7:33 to play in the first half. They were led by forwards Terrance Henry with nine points and Holloway with seven. About a minute later Ole Miss tied the score at 27-27 and eventually took the lead 31-29 with 4:46 to play with two consecutive dunks. After a poster dunk by senior guard Darius Miller, along with his back-to-back threes, Lamb made another

The UK Student Activities Board is bringing a little piece of Saturday night to life on Monday, featuring a standup performance by renowned comedian Seth Meyers at 8 p.m. in the Singletary Center. Meyers is known for his contributions on the Meyers long-standing program “Saturday Night Live” where he has been head writer for the past five seasons. He has also been an actor in various skits, impersonating public figures such as

Sen. John Kerry during the 2004 U.S presidential election, according to his biography on the NBC website. He is perhaps more recognized for his role on the satirical news broadcast sketch, “Weekend Update,” which is one of the longest continuously active fixtures of the program. Meyers takes on the See MEYERS on page 2

Privatized housing set to be approved Trustees likely to authorize deal PHOTO BY LATARA APPLEBY |STAFF

Freshman Kyle Wiltjer was the “difference” in the first half, Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy said. Wiltjer scored 10 points in the half and finished with 13. three with less than a minute in the half to propel the Cats, who led 43-35 that halftime. “I thought (Miller) played well,” Calipari said. “I think the dunk is one of the biggest plays I’ve seen him make.” Miller and freshman forward Kyle Wiltjer came off the bench to lead the Cats in

scoring at halftime with 10 points apiece. Miller ended the game with 14 points while Wiltjer recorded 13. “When you have a team full of talented players, I don’t think defenses know how to stop us,” Wiltjer said. “That’s what makes us so tough to defend; that we

have so many weapons.” The Cats continued to widen the lead as the second half resumed and had its largest lead of the game at 23, leading 75-52 with 5:37 to play. Sophomore forward TerSee OLE MISS on page 2

UK’s Board of Trustees is expected to authorize a ground lease for student housing Tuesday, which will transfer all of campus housing to a private company. UK is working with Education Realty Trust, a private firm from Memphis, Tenn., to turn over housing. Privatizing housing means UK will turn all of its dorms over to a private company to rebuild and manage the buildings, said Angie Martin, UK’s vice president of financial operations and treasurer, in a Feb. 9 Kernel article. Turning

over housing would mean nicer dorms for students. If trustees approve the contract with EdR on Tuesday, the company will build and manage a 600-bed, $26 million dorm on Haggin Field. If the first phase goes well, UK would turn over all of its housing to EDR, Martin said. All but seven of the current student housing facilities, including graduate housing, would then be torn down and rebuilt.


Do-It-Yourself bike repair station installed on campus By Danielle Kaye


A DIY bike repair station was installed on North campus. It provides the tools to fix common bike problems.

In recent sustainability efforts at UK, Wildcat Wheels set up its first Do-It-Yourself Bike Repair Station. The DIY Bike Repair Station was installed two weeks ago on North campus to provide the tools necessary for students to repair common problems on their bikes. The station provides instructions on how to patch a flat tire and provides the patches

to students, according to the Sustainability website. Wildcat Wheels is a “nationally recognized educational resource that provides free bicycle use and repair assistance to students, faculty and staff,” according to the Wildcat Wheels website. Corbin Little, Wildcat Wheels assistant manager, said the program is funded by the Student Sustainability Council. Wildcat Wheels has made numerous efforts to provide energy-efficient means of Classifieds.............3 Features.............1/4 Horoscope.............2

transportation to UK students. The program has a bike library consisting of 75 bikes that students can rent through an application process, Little said. Wildcat Wheels also allows students to come in and volunteer around the shop. Once students have racked up some hours they can use the credits they have earned to work on their own bikes, said Sara Ailshire, an employee at Wildcat Wheels.

MEYERS Continued from page 1 persona of a “news anchor” who weaves jagged quips into stories of current events. “He’s a talented comedian and we at SAB knew it would be a quality event for students to enjoy,” Sarah Ausmus, SAB’s vice president of promotions, said in an email to the Kernel. “Seth is always entertaining on SNL, especially the ‘Weekend Update’ segments.” A survey distributed by the group last semester indicated students would be excited about Meyers, Ausmus said. Derek Operle, SAB’s director of popular culture, said Meyers’ relevancy played a major factor in bringing him to UK’s campus. “I think he’s much more relevant to college students (than other comedians),” Operle said when explaining Meyers’ use of topical humor. Chemistry sophomore

Roberto Tapia, who will be attending the event, reiterated the sentiment about the comedian’s use of current events through his work on SNL. “The writing turns complex and current social issues into hilarious sketches, because sometimes, we just have to laugh about it,” Tapia said. Those interested in attending may want to secure tickets sooner rather than later. According to the ticketing website found through the UK Singletary Center website, comparatively few seats are remaining. Operle says that the event broke 1,200 tickets sold as of Friday morning. Full-time students can pick up tickets at a reduced price of $10 with a valid student ID at the Singletary Center ticket booth. Ausmus encouraged all students interested to attend. “He’s a comedian that our generation can relate to, and we hope that everyone enjoys the show.”

OLE MISS Continued from page 1 rence Jones recorded his first double-double of the season with 15 points and 11 rebounds. “With (Davis) in foul trouble and me just being out there, I just wanted to help get more rebounds,” Jones said. “All of us go after them.” The Cats play at Mississippi State. The Bulldogs (19-7, 6-5 SEC) have struggled in league play, but players think any opponent can still pose a threat.

Gervais makes faux documentary PASADENA, Calif. — The new HBO series, “Life’s Too Short,” pulls no punches. Created by Ricky Gervais with longtime comedy partner Stephen Merchant, the faux documentary about actor Warwick Davis pokes fun at everything from short people to Hollywood images. While his humor has been called controversial, all Gervais — who says his conscious never takes a day off — is trying to do is take an audience to a place they haven’t been before. “When people say it’s sort of outrageous or sick or pushing the boundaries, I don’t see that it is. I think some people confuse the target of a joke with the subject of a joke. You can have jokes about race without being racist, which we’ve always done,” Gervais says. “I think sometimes people flinch too soon. And very often, the target is people’s prejudices or the character’s stupidity. So I think smart people know what we’re trying to do. “We’re not trying to be just outrageous for outrageous’ sake. That’s too easy. It’s childish and it’s pretty pointless.” “Life’s Too Short” takes an exaggerated look at the life and work of Davis. Despite being a successful actor, the series suggests he’s only remembered for being in “Willow” and “Return of the Jedi.” This odd fame has not set well with Davis and he’s become desperate for work. Davis will not be the only source of come-

dy. Johnny Depp, Sting, Helena Bonham Carter, Steve Carell and Cat Deeley make cameo appearances. In one episode, Liam Neeson approaches Gervais and Merchant to help him be a comedian. The problem is every time they try to improvise a comedy scene, Neeson turns to serious topics such as AIDS. The scene draws laughs from Neeson’s serious Hollywood image. Fame and infamy have always been source material for Gervais, including his series “Extras.” And the fake documentary style goes back to his original British version of “The Office.” While “The Office” ripped reality TV that gave normal people their 15 minutes of fame, “Life’s Too Short” takes a broader look at the quest for stardom. “It’s almost like fame these days is much more aggressive. There’s no shame. There’s no shame in anything. As one thing we found doing this, you can’t do something that’s so ridiculous that isn’t happening in Hollywood. It’s literally impossible. It’s literally impossible, so that was fun,” Gervais says. The comedian stresses that while it might seem that his humor is mean and bitter, it starts from a place of good and goodness. Everything he’s done, however hidden or apparent, has always been about humanity. “We always try and put a warmth in it,” he says. “There’s always hope.”

BIKE Continued from page 1 Ailshire said she believes the stations will initially serve students who ride bikes and want to maintain and repair them. “Long term, however, I feel that the stations send a message to all UK students— that UK cares about sustainability, cares about bicycling as a mode of transportation, and that it has made both of these things a priority heading

towards the future,” she said. The installation of the first DIY Bike Repair Station is just a small step in the furthering of the sustainability program on campus via cycling. Wildcat Wheels is planning on installing four Repair Stations throughout campus, as well as offering classes to help students learn how to ride their bicycle safely, Ailshire said. The ultimate goal is that sustainability becomes part of UK’s culture.

I can choose the next leader of the free world by voting. I can destroy my lungs by smoking cigarettes if I wanted (not on campus, of course). I can be sentenced to the death penalty. I can pay thousands of dollars for my education. I can join the military, fight and die for my country. I can put my John Hancock on a bank loan and ruin my name. I can go downtown and get a glass full of the harshest Russian vodka you’ve ever had. I cannot, however, have alcohol on UK’s campus. Does this make sense to you? Now, some people reading this will say, before I even get to the end of this sentence, “We do not need to be condoning underage drinking,” “we do not need legal-aged drinkers influencing underage drinkers,” “we do not need boys being allowed to binge drink on campus legally.” This is not the issue. The issue is a person’s right, given by the U.S. government, to have or consume alcohol. If you are 21 years old, you should be allowed to have a six pack in your fridge. UK should take pride in knowing it has thousands of students seeking a higher education. These students can see far enough into the future to realize a college degree will make their lives better. These students know the difference between a good decision and a bad decision. These students know binge drinking is bad for them, but if they make the conscious decision to do it as adults then they have the right to do so. I hate to break it to university officials, but no matter how much they try, no matter how many policemen are on the streets and no matter how harsh the consequences, there will always be students consuming

By Jim Blackerby

alcohol — it is a fact of college life. So rather than trying to reduce it through brute force or through Big Brother constantly looking over our shoulders, the university should reduce it through legality. There is no telling how many students drink and drive from a party back to their home on campus. Whether we like to admit it or not, it happens. They will get in their cars and drive all the way across campus to get home. This is in no way acceptable or tolerable, but it’s a fact. Rather than forcing students to go further and further away from campus to have a party that won’t be broken up by some overzealous police officers, why not allow them to have their party on campus and let them walk back to their dorms or their houses? I guarantee you DUIs will decrease and fatalities resulting from DUIs will go down through this policy. So if you are strictly against allowing adults to make their own decisions then look at it from the angle of less drunk drivers potentially hitting your car head-on in a fiery, maybe that will change your mind. Based on a study by Landry Fields, Kacey Marr, Longford Nguyen, Michael Porter and Christina Wemer, and published by the Gatton Student Research Publication, “The majority of students of the University of Kentucky are clearly not following the alcohol policy stated in the Student Code of Conduct … Students do not feel obliged to follow the alcohol policy and do not feel threatened by the punishment for violating the alcohol policy.” I, for one, have never had the idea pop into my head while drinking on campus that I am violating the Student Code of Conduct. I have never had the thought that if I get caught I will have to go to C.H.O.I.C.E.S or

pay a $100 fine. These rules UK has put in place are hardly known, let alone enforced. They can’t be. Another finding from the same publication found that, “The current alcohol policy of the University of Kentucky does not appear to be effective. In a random survey of UK students, 75 percent of the underage students admitted to consuming alcohol. Also, 59 percent of the students said they have consumed alcohol in the dormitories at the University of Kentucky; 63 percent of the students who admitted to drinking in the residence halls were under the age of 21.” These results are with the current UK rules and they obviously are not working. Instead of trying to toughen the rules by adding more rules, why not try something different that will actually work. Let college men and women that are legal enjoy the responsibilities that make life interesting. Treat them as the adults they are instead of a live bomb just waiting to explode. We have proven we are responsible by just showing up on the first day of class. UK students should present a united front and demand changes be made. We need to demand to be treated as adults with no need for a babysitter, and we need to demand the right to have top shelf bourbon in our 50-year-old dorm room if you are of legal drinking age. There will be a petition in every oncampus housing unit, as well as other places around campus. I encourage each person who thinks the university should at least consider changing from a “dry” campus to a “wet” campus to sign this petition and let the university know how the student body feels.

Jones records first double-double of the year in win Sophomore had 13 last season in heavier rebounding role AARON SMITH Kernel columnist

Terrence Jones recorded his first double-double of the season 27 games into it. Jones had 13 double-doubles last year. A dip in the raw numbers was expected. Coming into this year, Jones was surrounded by more talent. He didn't have to do as much. It’s still surprising, though, that he didn't get a double-double until this point of the season (and much of it can be attributed to necessity, as Anthony Davis was on the bench with

foul trouble). Looking at his numbers, both his scoring and his rebounding decreased. Through 27 games last year, he had 25 games of 10 or more points and 10 games of 10 or more rebounds. Through 27 games this year, he has 17 games of 10 or more points and two games of 10 or more rebounds. The rebounding, to me, is still the surprising component for Jones. Last year, he led the team with 8.8 rebounds per game and grabbed 23.7 percent of the team's total rebounds. This year, he’s third on the team with 6.7 rebounds per game and is grabbing 15.8 percent of the teams to-

tal rebounds. “We’re a longer team, and the rebounds are more spread out for this whole team,” Jones said. “It’s every guy crashing. Last year I felt it was more me having to get the rebounds for us to win.” This is true. Davis is clearly the dominant rebounder on the team, and KiddGilchrist is about his equal. Last year, it was Jones and Josh Harrellson. But he could still be doing more. “Terrence, this is what you should be every game we play,” coach John Calipari said. “It should be a double-double. Without an excuse, I don't want to hear it, you should be a doubledouble.” PHOTO BY TESSA LIGHTY | STAFF

Forward Terrence Jones scored 15 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for his first double-double of the season. He had 10 double-doubles through the same amount of games last year.

Baseball cruises in 2 opening weekend wins Starting pitchers allow one earned run in 11.2 innings By David Schuh

The UK baseball team traveled to Spartanburg, S.C., to open its 2012 season this weekend. Friday night they rode a dominant performance by starting pitcher Taylor Rogers to a 10-4 victory over Wofford. Rogers pitched six innings, striking out a careerhigh nine batters while giving up one earned run on five hits. The offense also showed its muscles out of the gate. A home run by senior third baseman Thomas McCarthy

highlighted a day in which nine UK players drove a runner in. Saturday’s game with Eastern Michigan was much of the same for UK. Starting pitcher Jerad Grundy didn’t allow a run in his first career start for the Cats in 5.2 innings. He was aided by an offense that jumped on the EMU pitchers from the opening pitch. A home run by junior catcher Luke Maile and multi-hit games from five players quickly put the game out of reach. The only disconcerting statistic so far is the bullpen’s

ERA of 7.11 in the first two games. A constant struggle last season, UK head coach Gary Henderson said last week the bullpen had been a major focus over the offseason. After Sunday’s game was postponed due to heavy rain, the Cats will finish the opening trio of games on Monday at 3 p.m. against USC Upstate. Sophomore left-hander Corey Littrell will make his first start of the year. The Cats will then travel back to Lexington to open their home schedule against Buffalo on Friday at Cliff Hagan Stadium.


Steele’s Reels: Snape’s snubbed DAVE STEELE Kernel columnist

It’s February. Football had its chance to shine with the Super Bowl (and shine it did …. NOT). Now it’s the Academy’s turn. It’s nice to know that there is another kind of “Super Bowl” that follows a juggernaut industry a few weeks later. After all, $10,196,420,077 in total ticket sales for 2011 is proof that even when the economy is down, movie sales just keep on rolling. Personally, I love the Oscars. The corny routines, the acceptance speech gaffes and let’s not forget Leo’s “I just lost again but I’m gonna be the first one to clap” face. But enough about what I

like about it, the Academy has put together a great list of nominees in all categories. This year has a fantastic line up for best picture with “The Artist,” “The Descendants,” “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close,” “The Help,” “Hugo,” “Midnight in Paris,” “Moneyball,” “The Tree of Life” and “War Horse.” However, lurking within these great choices is, in my opinion, one of the greatest Oscar snubs of all time. Alan Rickman’s lack of credit for one of the most iconic roles of our generation is appalling. He IS Snape in the Harry Potter series. The next time you see a trailer for whatever his next role is going to be you’re not gonna say “Hey look it’s Alan Rickman” you’re gonna say, “What up Snape!” Aging the same time as the three main characters has been a truly unique experi-

ence for me and for those my age, and Rickman’s role in the Harry Potter series was tremendous. Just because a movie is a multimillion-dollar blockbuster doesn’t automatically mean the talent should go unnoticed. I am not exaggerating when I say this is the biggest Oscar snub of all time. That’s my rant for the day, and I’m sticking to it. Steele’s Reels Oscar Picks: Best Picture: “The Artist” Actor in a leading role: Gary Oldman (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”) Actress in a leading role: Roony Mara (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) Actor in a supporting role: Nick Nolte (“Warrior”) Actress in a supporting role: Berenice Bejo (“The Artist”) Best Director: Martin Scorsese (“Hugo”)
