SAB announces fall concert

Brantley Gilbert is known for country hits “Country Must Be Country Wide” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.”

Country artist Brantley Gilbert will headline Oct. 28 show By Becca Clemons


The Student Activities Board has booked countrymusic artist Brantley Gilbert as the headliner for its fall concert, following student surveys and voting in the spring and summer. The concert will be at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 28 in Memorial Coliseum, and supporting acts are Uncle Kracker, Greg

Bates and Brian Davis. The show is part of Gilbert’s Hell on Wheels Tour. SAB has not hosted a large country concert since 2007, said Derek Operle, director of concerts for SAB. During voting over the summer, Gilbert won “by a landslide,” said Gabrielle Dudgeon, vice president of promotions for SAB. The other choices were Childish Gambino, Ellie Goulding and

Neon Trees. “We’re trying to bring different artists to campus to target different audiences,” Dudgeon said. This will be the second fall concert on a scale comparable to SAB’s spring concerts, at about 5,100 people, Operle said. The first was Jason Derulo and B.o.B in fall 2010. “Not only students but See CONCERT on page 2

Contest taps into team spirit Winning school gets Victoria’s Secret tailgate By Alexis Gray


Louisville’s Jeremy Wright runs the ball in the second half of the Governor’s Cup game at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Louisville beat UK 32-14 in the annual rivalry.

Can’t shuffle Cards Phillips: UK is better than Sunday’s game

UK offense, defense both still sour, come up short in first game of the season

By Ethan Levine

In just five words, UK head football coach Joker Phillips was able to summarize his team’s entire performance in a 32-14 loss to in-state rival Louisville in the commonwealth’s 25th edition of the Governor’s Cup. “We are better than that,” Phillips said in a blunt, frustrated tone. “We are better than that.” It’s a phrase he repeated four or five more times following the game, still trying to overcome the disappointment of a second straight loss to his program’s greatest enemy. And while the score might not resemble a close game, it was just a few plays that turned this game from a back-and-forth thriller to a blowout victory for the Cardinals in their home stadium. Facing third and nine from his own 2-yard line on its first drive of the game, U of L sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was able to thread the needle past UK’s Martavius Neloms and complete a 23-yard pass down the right sideline to pick up the first down. On the next play, Bridgewater completed another pass, this time for 17 yards. On the 15th play of the same drive, U of L junior running back Jeremy Wright punched in a 1yard touchdown, giving the Cardinals the early lead. It was one completion that turned a quick three-and-out, not to mention a punt situation from the back of their own end zone, into six points for the Cardinals. “That’s what we pride ourselves on, that’s why we work hard,” Bridgewater said of his team’s opening drive. “We practice game-like situations, so today was just like practice.” UK would respond with a touchdown drive of its own, scoring on a 1-yard touchdown pass from sophomore quarterback See FOOTBALL on page 4

Buy a child lemons and he or she can give you a lemonade stand — profit included. Forget the sugar, and it’s just a bitter result. For as far back as my UK football knowledge reaches, the Cats have either had a good offense or a good defense — never both. Entering Sunday’s game against Louisville, there was hope that maybe, just maybe, the Cats could put together some substance on each side of the ball.

Instead, fans were treated to lemon juice. Defensive coordinator Rick Minter’s unit allowed the Cardinals to essentially do anything they wanted. According to the hearsay around camp and practices, it was only the Cats’ secondary that was to be a liability. The creation of U of L sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater one year ago, as Rick Minter said following a UK practice, led to many nightmares Sunday. See PORTER on page 4

Even though the UK football team took a loss to the University of Louisville Sunday, women on each campus have found a way to keep the heated in-state rivalry going through social media. Beginning Aug. 27, students could vote for their university via Twitter in the Victoria’s Secret PINK Nation Tailgate Tour competition. Students have until Friday to vote. Twenty schools are matched against one of their biggest rivals in a competition to determine which campus wins a Victoria’s Secret PINK Nation tailgate. The Bluegrass matchup has become among the most competitive in the contest, with both schools breaking more than 50,000 votes. UK PINK Campus Representative Tara Dauer is excited about the competition. “This is a test of how See CONTEST on page 2

Festival features 8 plays By Nini Edwards

In only two weeks students have auditioned, casted and rehearsed to create the New Works Now! festival. “We had auditions the first week back to school,” said director, stage manager, actor and theater senior Maggie Howell. “We have been rehearsing since then.” UK’s young talent is hosting a festival of new-age performances. For three days student artists are performing eight shows in the Guignol Theatre. The rest of the plays to be performed this year are different from New Works Now! because they are classic or modern plays that are well known, said Nancy Jones, chair of the The Cardinals celebrate after winning the 25th Governor’s Cup. U of L also won last year’s rivalry game. Following Sunday’s 32-14 loss, UK defensive coordinator Rick Minter said of the Cats: “We’ve got a lot of work to do.”

A&E’s ‘Coma’ not quite sleeper hit LOS ANGELES — The good news about “Coma,” A&E’s four-hour miniseries adaptation of the Michael Crichton film airing Monday and Tuesday night, is that it’s much better than its previous miniseries adaptation of the Michael Crichton book “The Andromeda Strain.” The bad news? It’s still not very good. Or at least it’s not as good as it should be, given a cast that includes Lauren Ambrose, Richard Dreyfuss, Geena Davis, James Woods and Ellen Burstyn; it’s not even as good as the 1978 film, which, though facing a few of the same problems as this rendition, did not shy away from a subtext both hysterical and socially nuanced. In that film, as in the book, shifting gender relations were as much a tonal context as the growing fear of technology. Protagonist and surgical resident Susan Wheeler (Genevieve Bujold) fights to be heard not only as the first person to notice that there sure are a lot of folks lapsing into comas at Boston Memorial but also as a woman in both her personal and professional life. This time around, screenwriter John J. McLaughlin (“Black Swan”) and director

In facing the universal obstacle of remaking a thriller with a big, bad twist at the end, producers Ridley Scott and the late Tony Scott (who also produced A&E’s “The Andromeda Strain”) apparently decided that since everyone already knows the story of “Coma,” McLaughlin could just dismiss the “Is something really happening?” portion of the story in favor of a relentless excavation of “How awful will it be when it’s discovered?” and “Which members of the cast are in on it?” Every shot, every plot device, every anxious swoop of score and burst of dialogue shoves us, with almost palpable impatience, toward the gruesome scenes of what is really up with all those coma patients. Even the props conspire to ensure that we understand that something Just Ain’t Right at ol’ Peachtree Memorial and its off-site coma care facility, the Jefferson Institute. If you can live through the ridiculous hustle-forward, no-looking introduction to the story, what follows is entertaining enough, albeit in a mildly campy way. “Coma” has its moments of power, but at twice as long as the original film, it feels only half as scary.

UK’s union with coal endorses exploitation In October 2009, the University of Kentucky garnered national attention for a decision made by the Board of Trustees. By a vote of 173, the board allowed for the construction of the Wildcat Coal Lodge, a basketball dormitory named and funded by Joe Craft and other donors who have made their money mining Kentucky coal. SAM From the very beBEAVIN ginning of this Guest process, the ulticolumnist mate objective was quite clear: creating a building that would tie their industry to one of our state’s proudest traditions, UK basketball, while ignoring the history of exploitation of the coalfields of Appalachia and the harmful environmental and health effects that come with burning coal. This summer, construction was completed on the Wildcat Coal Lodge. It now sits proudly near the corner of Avenue of Champions and Rose Street, and its lobby serves as a monument, personally approved by Joe Craft, celebrating

the history of coal in Kentucky. Considering the many negative impacts associated with mining and burning coal, it’s hardly surprising that industry officials work so diligently to paint a positive image of coal in Kentucky. The Natural Resources Defense Council, for example, recently released a study placing Kentucky at No. 1 in the country in pollution associated with coal-fired power plants, pollutants that are, needless to say, quite toxic and harmful to the health of citizens all across the state. The university even has two coal-fired power plants located on campus, both of which are so old that they were grandfathered in under the Clean Air Act and therefore don’t have to meet EPA standards deemed safe for other parts of the country. So while UK students breathe in pollutants such as mercury and arsenic on a daily basis, coal executives continue to lean on their close ties with the university as a means of lending legitimacy to these destructive practices and distracting from the many important issues surrounding the use of coal as our primary energy source. On the whole, coal is, quite simply, bad for Kentucky. The environmental and health impacts are obvi-

ous, but even the traditional claim meet energy needs. Programs that that coal is a vital industry for the promote increased energy efficiency, state’s economy is dubious at best. combined with investments in wind, Campaigns by industry groups such solar and geothermal projects, could as the Friends of Coal have long help move our state away from the framed the issue as a choice between overwhelming reliance on this dirty environmental protection and the fuel.

Bilas and Kington: Welcome, UK freshmen By Stephen Bilas and Mary Katherine Kington Guest columnists

Freshmen, welcome to the University of Kentucky! You arrive on campus at an exciting time. Construction crews are changing the face of the university, raising new buildings, renovating current facilities and developing green space. More importantly, you arrive during this university’s mission to achieve Top 20 national status, with a renewed energy to grow enrollment, improve programs and attract top faculty and researchers. Such ambitious plans, though, will surely raise concerns, just as construction crews raise new buildings. We encourage you to approach your Student Government and learn about its programs, those that ease transitions and enhance college experiences. Learn how you can make your own mark on campus during this period of change. Get involved by joining organizations or representing your peers as an elected senator. Enjoy the opportunities afforded to you through Student Govern-

ment programming such as safe, latenight transportation around Lexington, professional semester and summer paid internships and complimentary legal counsel to name a few. Additionally, students interested in early involvement and growing as a student and leader should apply for the Leadership Development Program (LDP), designed to connect freshmen with upperclassmen leaders, faculty and staff, and administrators. Individuals selected after the Sept. 5 application deadline will experience how Wildcats excel in all endeavors throughout the Lexington community — how ordinary individuals can catalyze extraordinary change. Mary Katherine, the student representative on the Alumni Association’s Board of Directors and I, a university trustee, are committed to total representation and relaying your ideas and concerns to the appropriate bodies. We work tirelessly to address each student initiative and ensure the University works on behalf of its students. To learn more about Student Government’s programs, please visit, or share

your ideas with us in Room 120 of the Student Center. Go Cats!

alistic plan to address Kentucky’s energy needs in a rapidly changing world. The coal industry has had a profoundly negative impact on the lives of countless Kentucky citizens, and it is embarrassing that the flagship university of this great state continues to stand so closely aligned with such companies. Tobacco and alcohol brands are strictly prohibited from sponsoring athletic events associated with the university, and yet the coal industry continues to exploit its ties with UK to promote its own interests and divert attention from the many negative impacts it has on our state. To show our frustration with the university, we invite everyone to the university’s free speech zone at noon on Sept. 5 to participate in a rally bringing attention to this important issue and pushing for an end to the coal industry’s influence at the University of Kentucky. Now is the time to show that we will not accept the continued exploitation of the people and mountains of Appalachia. Please join us in our efforts.

kernel editorial UK is a land-locked campus. And location becomes an important factor whenever the university considers adding to existing programs or creating new ones — where is there space for new buildings? This question is central to UK’s proposed plan of expanding the College of Law building. The expansion would mean demolition for two buildings on South Limestone by the law school building that members of the local community say have historic significance. Before UK moves forward with the plans for the law school, it should stop and ask if the buildings that would be torn down are worth saving. An article from Thursday’s Kernel quoted John Rohrer, chairman of the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Commission and a graduate of UK College of Law, as saying he understands the need to expand the law school, but he wonders if UK understands the buildings significance. “It’s more or less a request for UK to slow down, look at alternatives and give it more thought,” he said in the article. But if after more thought, at a university that should want to put its students’ best interests first, that means tearing down two buildings that “used to be important,” then a tough decision might have to be made. The value of historic landmarks should not be overlooked, but a university that only seeks to keep its every connection to the past can risk limiting its ability — and that of its students — to grow.

FOOTBALL Continued from page 1 Maxwell Smith to senior tight end Tyler Robinson, doing its best to keep up with U of L on the scoreboard. But after kicking the ball back to the Cardinals, Smith and the offense watched their teammates on defense allow back-to-back scoring drives of 85 and 93 yards. With just more than four minutes left in the first half, the Cardinals’ three possessions had resulted in 277 total yards and three touchdowns. “We’ve got a lot of work to do,” defensive coordinator Rick Minter said, just as bluntly as Phillips uttered his statement. UK took its own chances in the second half, opening the half by recovering its own onside kick. But that bonus drive ended empty-handed for the Cats, as Craig McIntosh pushed a 42-yard field goal wide right, keeping the score at 22-7. Later in the half, down 18 points, UK was inside the Louisville 5-yard line, preparing to score a touchdown that would put

At game’s end, juniors Jeremy Wright and Sinorise

was played through constant rain. The one and only goal came from UK senior forward Natalie Horner nine minutes into the second half. SEMO started the first half with the midfield kickoff but quickly lost possession to UK and did not regain it until momentarily late in the first half and for longer in the second half.

The Cats came out aggressively and picked up two corner kicks in the first two minutes. This set the offensive pace for UK through most of the rest of the half, but the Cats did not give SEMO keeper Ashton Aubuchon much to do. Set pieces came regularly for UK and some sneaky, low shots by senior Alyssa Telang and junior Ashley VanLandingham neared goal, but both missed wide left. Toward the end of the

UK back within striking distance. Instead, senior tailback CoShik Williams, who ran for a team-high 62 yards on the day, fumbled the ball on the 3-yard line, ending UK’s chances of scoring a touchdown and the game’s competitive life. “We can’t be two for six (on trips inside the U of L 25yard line) with missed field goals, turnovers, those are missed opportunities,” Phillips said. “We’re better than that.” The Cats did have their bright spots on the afternoon, especially on offense. An offense that seemingly failed to ever gain traction a year ago moved the ball up and down the field against a veteran Louisville defense. Smith completed 35 of his 50 pass attempts for 280 yards, two touchdowns and no turnovers. Of his 35 completions, Smith was able to connect with 11 different receivers, including senior La’Rod King eight times and redshirt freshman Daryl Collins seven times. “I thought I played pretty well,” Smith said, “but I have lots of improvements I need

to make.” Collins, in his first collegiate game, had 64 yards receiving on his seven catches, showing himself as a threat over the middle of the field as well as on the outside in UK’s extensive screen game. Phillips said Collins played “like a veteran” in his first live collegiate action, something Collins has made a goal of his since high school. “In high school I was always coached to play like a veteran,” Collins said, “so it just carried on over to college. As I go farther from here I’ll play like a veteran, too. It’s just something I do.” But it was the defense that allowed the Cardinals to rack up 466 total yards of offense, 438 of which they gained in the first three quarters alone before Bridgewater was removed from the game. U of L finished the game with an average of 6.5 yards per play, down from the more than 8 yards per play they were allowing on average for most of the afternoon. Turnovers, a lack of stops in critical situations, and wasted opportunities. Those are the kinds of plays

Perry rushed for a combined 224 yards on 38 carries, 19 more attempts than the Cats’ entire team. Allow me to take you back to media day on Aug. 3. “The defensive line should be the strength of our defense,” said UK head coach Joker Phillips. “Should be the strength of our football team.” Yeah, Joker, about that. Ball in hand after UK’s eight-play opening drive, the Cardinals rammed it down

the throat of the Cats’ defense — going almost the entire length of the football field, 99 yards, to score, before padding on a two-point conversion for an early 8-0 lead. “That’s the most intimidating thing you can do to a defense is run the ball down their throat when they can’t stop you,” Minter said. Minter added that seeing his defense give up not only that drive, but three others going 85, 93 and 71 yards is

half, some sloppy passing by UK put SEMO in control of the ball as the 45-minute mark approached. The second half began with UK attacking like in the first, and the Cats again got several set pieces in the first few minutes. It was 10 minutes before a corner kick from junior Danielle Krohn found Horner in the back of the goal to put UK up 1-0. The Cats totaled eight corner kicks in the second half, 11 on the game. With about 15 minutes

left in the game, SEMO began to put together some strong offensive drives, but UK sophomore goalie Kayla Price along with her back line of VanLandingham, Telang, Horner and sophomore Arin Gilliland, were able to fend off any significant threats on their own goal. The Cats’ defense has conceded one goal this season, and they put that one in themselves. UK head coach Jon Lipsitz said of his defense this

weekend: “I think we really came together.” He said earlier in the season that the defense was playing well individually but needed to be a “team within a team.” Though UK won both of its games in the invitational, Louisville was the overall champion with a greater goal differential. The Cats travel to Louisville next weekend to take on the Cards for the first game of the Cardinal Classic. The match will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday.


Senior tailback CoShik Williams is tackled in the second half of Sunday’s game. UK was down 22-7 at halftime, and a Williams fumble on the 3-yard in the second half line ended the game’s competitive life. Phillips was referring to when he said “we are better than that.” UK’s next chance to show how good it really is

will be Saturday at home against the Kent State Golden Flashes. But Phillips and his team will be taking some time to reflect on the loss to

Louisville first. “We have to make Kentucky better before we think about Kent State,” Phillips said.

“demoralizing.” “Our offense did it to us one day in practice. Maybe that was a forwarner of things to come. They went 98 (yards) on us,” he said. That 98-yard drive during an Aug. 18 practice brought an abundance of optimism for Phillips because that drive was carried out predominantly by his team’s running backs — running backs that were rarely used Sunday. Obviously since this sto-

ry has unfolded, and UK didn’t carry the ball in great quantities, the proverbial wool was pulled over our faces again. Maybe the Cats’ altering success can be found only during summer days at the Nutter Training Facility. Trailing 22-7 at the half, Phillips’ optimism for his defense may have left Louisville, along with the remnants of Hurricane Isaac, as the Cats opened the second half with an onside kick. Later, freshman punter

Landon Foster dove into the depths of the red sea when he attempted a fake punt. Risks like this were expected. But not as result of trying to compensate for an underachieving defense. Now, the Cats can improve — this is only one game — but to take a step forward from last season, they need to reflect the improvements of their offense. After all, isn’t watereddown lemonade better than no lemonade at all?
