BRIAN HAMILTON Chicago Tribune (MCT)
The separation process the athletic directors from DePaul and Marquette were optimistic would occur in the next couple of weeks? It might happen in the next couple of days. And it might leave Notre Dame scrambling to get to its new home — or a different home, anyway — a year earlier than expected. The so-called Catholic 7 schools in the Big East are expected to start their new league for 2013-14 and officially will take the Big East name with them, according to an ESPN report. DePaul, Marquette and the other five schools — Providence, St. John’s, Seton Hall, Villanova and Georgetown — will add Butler and Xavier immediately, the report said. As such, the remnants of the conference Notre Dame would belong to would be less than ideal for the men’s and women’s basketball teams as well as nonrevenue sports. Athletic director Jack Swarbrick privately had been girding for the possibility of the Catholic 7 negotiating a split earlier than most anticipated, and that might mean the Irish would bolt for a new home earlier as well. It could mean a hurried sprint to the ACC well ahead of the 27-month waiting period Notre Dame had to endure, or even playing one season in the new league, according to the report. “All options open,” a Notre Dame source told the Chicago Tribune. As far as the new league, DePaul athletic director Jean Lenti Ponsetto and Marquette athletic director Larry Williams told the Tribune earlier this week the expectation is to reach 12 members eventually. “Twelve just seems to be a number that makes good sense,” Ponsetto said. “It could be that we’re smaller to start with. We’ll be real thoughtful about going from 10 to 12. I don’t know that we’ll start out at 12, but I think that’s where we’ll be (eventually).” Said Williams: “It gives the media partner enough content to be able to market some compelling product at all times. ... It gives you the flexibility in scheduling, so you don’t have to play a double-round-robin against everybody every year.” Retaining the Big East name, the Catholic schools believe, would be a key element. It would pre-empt a potentially laborious trademark process for a new name. “The Big East name, if we were to retain that, probably would require less effort,” Williams said. “But the effort would focus on bringing in a media consultant PR firm that would help us rehabilitate that brand that has taken quite a few hits over the course of the last couple of years.” 03.01.13 | weekend timeout | 3
Baseball hosts Akron for series
Because of weather, 3 games to be played instead of 4 NICK GRAY firstname.lastname@example.org
UK baseball (7-1), ranked as high as No. 8 in the polls, hosts Akron (0-6) at Cliff Hagan Stadium in a three-game series beginning Friday. The series begins at 4 p.m. Friday, with sophomore left-handed pitcher A.J. Reed (11, 5.79 ERA) scheduled to be on the mound for the Cats against Akron’s sophomore righthanded pitcher Jon Pusateri (0-1, 5.59 ERA). The team announced Thursday the Akron series would be consolidated to a three-game series after originally being scheduled as a four-game series with a Saturday doubleheader. A spokesman with the team said the concern is weather. UK is no stranger to Mother Nature, working around two separate delays and a postponement to put together a four-game winning streak. The Cats beat Coastal Carolina, 8-2, Sunday in a game postponed for heavy rain, and faced a three-hour rain delay before beating Murray State, 11-5, Tuesday in the home opener. UK also beat Eastern Kentucky, 6-2, Wednesday around a 65-minute delay due to winter weather before the eighth inning. Junior infielder J.T. Riddle has paced the Cats offensively, leading the team in batting
average (.529), runs scored (12) and extra base hits (5). Riddle also has an 11-game hitting streak dating back to last season and has five multi-hit games after his 2-for-3 performance against EKU. Sophomore infielder Max Kuhn leads the Cats in walks (9) and is second in batting average (.367), runs batted in (9) and hits (11). UK’s bullpen has also been a strength. In 33 innings, the bullpen has given up seven earned runs (10 runs total), good for a 1.91 ERA, which includes 5.2 innings against EKU where the Cats’ bullpen gave up no earned runs in relief of freshman right-handed pitcher Ryne Combs in his first start. The Cats are the third ranked team that the Zips have faced in the young 2013 season. Akron fell in three-game sweeps at No. 20 Georgia Tech to begin the season and at No. 4 Louisville a week ago. The Zips have scored seven runs in their six games, hitting .175 so far this season. Junior catcher Brady Stewart leads Akron in batting average (.381) and hits (8). The Zips’ pitching staff has an earned run average of 5.81 over six games. In the second game of the series, scheduled for Saturday at 1 p.m., UK senior lefthanded pitcher Jerad Grundy (2-0, 0.69 ERA) is projected to start versus Akron freshman
left-handed pitcher John Valek (0-1, 5.87 ERA). On Sunday, Cats junior left-handed pitcher Corey Littrell (0-0, 6.52 ERA) is scheduled to square off against Zips fresh-

The UK track and field teams will split up this weekend for the NCAA Qualifiers. This will be the Cats’ last chance to secure their spot in the NCAA Indoor Championships. Distance runners will be at the Loftus Sports Center at Notre Dame. Sprinters and hurdlers will be at the Johnson-Miller Track Complex at Virginia Tech, and shot putter Brad Szypka will compete at Lied Recreation-Athletic Facility at Iowa State. The last meet the Cats attended was the SEC Championships at the Randal Tyson Track Center on the University of Arkansas
campus. UK junior Matt Hillenbrand took first place in the men’s mile with a time of 4:01.55, his new personal best and the seventh-fastest time in school history. In the women’s 3,000 meters championship, UK senior Cally Macumber won first place with a time of 9:15.66, edging Florida’s Cory McGee by .01 seconds. Macumber remains undefeated in the individual event finals heading into this weekend’s events. UK senior Keith Hayes finished fourth in the men’s 60-meter hurdles final with a time of 7.82 seconds. In men’s shot put, UK sophomore Brad Szypka landed fourth place with a throw of 18.83 meters, 9 centimeters short of first place. Some Cats will go for national top-16 times at NCAA qualifying meets this weekend, continuing the postseason portion of indoor events.
No. 6 men’s tennis begins SEC play TYLER SPANYER firstname.lastname@example.org
One week after beginning the outdoor portion of their schedule with two wins, the No. 6-ranked men’s tennis team returns home to begin SEC play against No. 47 Arkansas and No. 39 LSU this weekend. The Cats stayed at No. 6 in the rankings this week, but two UK players moved up in the singles rankings. Junior Tom Jomby moved back up to No. 18 in singles, and senior Anthony Rossi jumped up 69 spots from No. 90 to No. 21 in this week’s rankings. Jomby and his doubles partner, freshman Kevin Lai, come in at No. 19 in the doubles rankings. UK will first host No. 47 Arkansas on Friday afternoon at the Boone Tennis Complex. The Razorbacks are 11-2 on the year but have yet to play a team ranked in the top 125. Arkansas is led by senior Gregoire Lehmann, who comes in at No. 125 in the ITA
rankings this week. Lehmann is 5-4 on the year from the one spot and should pose a small challenge to Rossi. Other than Lehmann, no other Razorback is ranked in either singles or doubles, but they are a young team on a mission. The Cats will finish up play Sunday as they host the No. 39-ranked Tigers from LSU. The Tigers are 5-2 overall on the year and hold a 1-2 record against ranked teams. That lone ranked win was an upset over No. 23 Indiana, with the two losses coming against No. 4 Ohio State and SEC foe No. 11 Mississippi State. LSU is led by the duo of senior Stefan Szacinski and sophomore Chris Simpson, who come in at No. 41 in the ITA doubles rankings. Szacinski is a three-time letter winner at LSU, while Simpson is a young upand-comer from England. Friday’s action between UK and Arkansas is slated to begin at 1 p.m., with the Cats and Tigers finishing up the weekend at 12:30 p.m. Sunday.

UK on streak
Women’s tennis has won past 6 TYLER SPANYER email@example.com
The UK women’s tennis team is on a six-match win streak, including going 3-0 in Tuesday’s triple header. The Cats will now head to Fayetteville, Ark., to face the No. 50 Razorbacks Friday afternoon, before heading to Baton Rouge, La., to face the No. 63 Tigers of LSU. UK climbed 10 spots in the latest rankings to No. 53 in the ITA standings. Freshman Nadia Ravita also went up in the rankings, going up 12 spots to No. 51. UK holds a 9-2 record on the year and is
looking to get off to a quick start in SEC play. The No. 50 Arkansas Razorbacks are first up for the Cats, and despite their lackluster 5-5 record they are capable of beating ranked teams. The Razorbacks are 2-5 against top-50 opponents, including a win over No. 28 Tulsa. Following the game in Fayetteville, the Cats will head to Baton Rouge to face the No. 63 LSU Tigers. The Tigers hold a 7-3 record on the season but are 1-3 against ranked opponents. Their only win against ranked opponents was against No. 67 Tulane.
The value of TV rights NEIL BEST Newsday (MCT)
We begin today’s look at the wacky world of sports media by borrowing another writer’s analogy, as it is too perfect not to: When ESPN retained rights to (what for now is called) the Big East by matching NBC’s offer last week, the Sherman Report blog likened it to the Grinch swiping the last crumb in Whoville, one even too small for a mouse. That’s about right, given that the Big East amounts to sports crumbs these days — as its modest price of about $20 million a year suggests — and that ESPN does not need the content as much as the Whos at NBC Sports Network do. But that is not to say ESPN did anything wrong, even if it at times is accused of having a heart two sizes too small. Nope, the Bristol Stompers merely were doing what made business sense. They played defense against a competitor while holding onto another sliver of the most valuable programming in television: live sports. Media companies and advertisers love the stuff, because it mostly is DVR proof, draws young male viewers like nothing else and, unlike hit-or-miss, frequently canceled sitcoms and dramas and such, usually delivers entertainment value. Here’s the problem: There are only so
many ratings-rich games to go around and only so many human beings with so many hours to watch them, and yet the number of channels devoted to sports continues to grow. So the lack of supply has run into a mushrooming demand for hours to fill, which in turn has created increasingly desperate, high-stakes bidding for sports rights — both nationally and even more so locally. (There is a cost associated with all that, one reflected on your cable bill, but that is another very complicated and contentious subject.) The next big event on the sports TV calendar comes Tuesday, when Fox is expected to announce it will join ESPN, CBS and NBC in the national, all-sports cable channel business by launching Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2. How can there possibly be enough worthwhile stuff to go around? “Well, to date, (demand) has been insatiable, right?” ESPN president John Skipper said recently. “And remember, (ESPN is) doing seven 24/7 networks, so it’s not like we’re going from one to five; we are really going from seven to 11. “Having said that, what there’s not enough of are the marquee, live events that get big ratings. That’s going to be a scarce commodity. And ultimately you have to have some of that, right?” 03.01.13 | weekend timeout| 5
Hoops defeats Ole Miss
90-65 win comes with 20 points from Mathies
Won 76% of votes for SG president JUDAH TAYLOR firstname.lastname@example.org
Roshan Palli was all smiles as he gave students his best Tiger Woods fist pump upon winning the Student Government presidential election. Palli, who won with 76 percent of the votes and, as a sophomore, is among the youngest presidential candidates to be elected at UK, said that he felt overwhelmed — so much so that he had a little trouble focusing. “I can’t think right now,” Palli said with a large grin. “I’m on a high. ... I feel great.” However, Palli did say that he had ideas for his term, which will begin prior to the 2013-14 academic year. “We want to hit the ground running,” he said. “So right now it’s just getting everything in place and getting our applications out for executive positions ... so we can get a great team on board.” The only position being filled ahead of time is chief of staff. Eli Edwards, who is 4-0 in SG campaigns,
will fill that role. Edwards said that he couldn’t wait to get started and move UK forward. “It is a great time to be a Wildcat,” he said. “Anyone can see that Palli really does bleed blue ... and he is someone that everyone can look up to. We’re going to have a great year.” Current SG President Stephen Bilas shared Edwards’ feelings, saying that he was happy with the results and believed that UK is going to be in “good hands.” “They have a great partnership,” Bilas said of Palli and the vice president-elect, Jake Ingram. “They don’t agree on everything, so they will butt heads. But they will do so constructively, which is the best way for work to get done.” “They’ve already done a lot of great work, and I think they will continue to do that,” Bilas added. Palli’s and Ingram’s opponents were Scotty Stutts and Ryan Mosley. Mosley said he was disappointed but wished them well. “We raised a lot of issues,” Mosley said. “I think those issues need to be addressed. So I PHOTO BY GENEVIEVE ADAMS | STAFF hope our opponents do address them.��� Students look at the final list of those elected to Student Government positions, posted under a list of past presidents, Thursday in the Student Center.
Providing muscle during moves WILL WRIGHT email@example.com Collegiate moving company Campus Bellhops is looking to hire student muscle at UK over the next 60 days. The company was founded on the idea that college moving day is an “embraced misery,” said co-founder Cameron Doody. Moving into an apartment, house or dorm can be stressful. Campus Bellhops’ mission is to minimize stress for parents and students on moving day. The entire process, excluding the actual move, is done online. When a customer books a move, Bellhops will be able to view and claim the job on a private online portal. Bellhops can book as many or as few jobs as they want. 6 | weekend timeout | 03.01.13
The system was developed so Bellhops can incorporate their jobs in their normal routines without scheduling conflicts. “It just depends on how many jobs you want to take,” Doody said. Two bellhops will be sent for each job. The customer will receive an email with the bellhops’ names, majors and pictures. Bellhops will be paid a flat rate depending on the size of the move. Bellhops make an average of more than $20 an hour, according to Doody. Doody added that the company wants to hire respectable young men. “We really put a huge emphasis on hiring really good guys,” Doody said. “The kind of guy my mother or sister would want to show up to help move.” Involvement in multiple student organizations is preferred. Bellhops are expected to be able to lift 60
pounds to chest level. “It started three years ago down in Alabama, and within three years they expanded to 53 universities,” said UK’s campus director of Campus Bellhops, Ian Blair. The company is now serving 57 universities from coast to coast, according to the Campus Bellhops website. “We handle all of the grunt work that moving day entails,” Doody said. We’ll book you a truck, load it and drive it back, Doody said. Bellhops can also just load or unload, if that is preferred. The advertising and marketing will be directed mainly to college students, but any Lexington resident can hire the Bellhops, Blair said. The company is looking to hire about 40 students, Blair said. Interested students can apply at campus bellhops.com.
No. 10 UK Hoops defeated the Lady Rebels of Ole Miss on the road, 90-65, behind 20 points from senior guard A’dia Mathies. Though UK won the game, Tennessee’s 82-72 victory over Texas A&M means the Cats won’t repeat as SEC regular-season champions. UK (24-4, 12-3 SEC) was all over Ole Miss from the start, jumping out to a 21-6 lead roughly 10 minutes into the first half, helped by a 13-0 run spanning five minutes. The Lady Rebels (9-19, 2-13 SEC) struggled against UK’s defense in the first half, shooting only 23 percent. After the first 20 minutes of play, UK had more than doubled Ole Miss, leading 37-18 at the half. The 18 points allowed by the Cats in the first half are an SEC season low. The second half belonged to the Cats. With 9:23 remaining in the game, an and-one from junior guard Kastine Evans gave UK its biggest lead of the game, 6533. Evans finished with nine points and five rebounds. UK and Ole Miss traded baskets down the stretch. UK led by 28 with eight sec-
onds left before a 3-pointer from Ole Miss sophomore forward Tia Faleru sealed the final score. UK held Ole Miss to 37.3 percent from the field and forced 21 turnovers, which led to 23 UK points. The Cats shot 40.5 percent from the field and outrebounded the Lady Rebels, 57-38. The 57 rebounds are a SEC seasonhigh for UK. With her performance, Mathies notched her seventh 20-point game of the SEC season. She has scored in double figures in 26 of 28 games, including 19 straight. Her two steals leave her one shy of 300. Only two other players in program history have recorded 300 or more steals. Mathies was joined in double figures by freshman guard Janee Thompson and sophomore guard Bria Goss, who scored 11 and 10 off the bench, respectively. Thompson tied a career-high with three assists. Junior forward Samarie Walker continued to haul in rebounds, corralling 13 to go along with nine points and two blocks. Walker has secured double-digit rebound-
ing in 11 games this season. UK won without junior forward DeNesha Stallworth, who stayed in Lexington with flu-like symptoms. Senior forward Brittany Henderson started in her place, notching two blocks and one steal. The Cats’ win ties head coach Matthew Mitchell with Terry Hall for most wins in school history with 138. Mitchell’s winning percentage of .697 is good for first in school history. UK will play its final regular-season game on Sunday against the newly minted regular season champion Tennessee Lady Vols. UK seniors Mathies and Henderson will be honored before their final home game in a senior day ceremony. The game is sold out, but a limited number of tickets will be held for UK students, faculty and staff, available for pickup at the Joe Craft Center starting at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. Tipoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPNU.
Apple's iTunes U hits 1 billion downloads JEREMY C. OWENS San Jose Mercury News (MCT)
Apple announced Thursday that its iTunes U offering has surpassed 1 billion downloads, as online education becomes more accepted at schools in the United States and more popular worldwide. ITunes U offers free educational content from colleges, libraries, museums and more that can help professors create materials for their courses, which can be offered to students using the same platform. For example, Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif. — which offered the first publicly available iTunes U site after joining
Apple for the pilot project in 2004 — offers lectures from its courses, as well as course materials, faculty presentations, event highlights and more on the service. Apple singled out Stanford in its news release for being one of two entities to produce more than 60 million downloads on its own. “With the incredible content offered on iTunes U, students can learn like never before — there are now iTunes U courses with more than 250,000 students enrolled in them, which is a phenomenal shift in the way we teach and learn,” Apple software chief Eddy Cue said in Thursday’s announcement. Online education has become more ac-
cepted and widely used on college campuses in the past few years, as evidenced by the emergence of massive online open courses, or MOOCs, which offer education on the Web to anyone. The system is beginning to garner wider acceptance. San Jose State University announced in February, for example, that it will partner with Mountain View, Calif.based MOOC company Udacity for the first such courses to be eligible for college credits, offering three lower-level math courses for $150, a much smaller fee than such classes typically cost at the state university. Also in February, the American Council on Education recommended credit for four
Coursera undergraduate math and science courses from Duke University, the University of Pennsylvania and University of California-Irvine; Coursera is also a Mountain View-based MOOC company. ITunes U growth also showed a spike in recent years, as online education has become more accepted. The company announced that it had surpassed 300 million downloads on the service in August of 2010, a little more than three years after the service launched; less than three years later, it has added 700 million more. A large percentage of that growth has come from overseas, with Apple saying Thursday that 60 percent of its downloads
originate from outside the United States. “Because of iTunes U, I have been able to introduce students and colleagues in China to research on the links between chronic multi-tasking, information overload and stress; discuss research publications and degree programs with students in Europe; and exchange information about the influence of neighborhood design on community levels of physical activity and obesity with students in Australia,” UCIrvine professor Dan Stokols said in Thursday’s release. Stokols reaches 170,000 students on iTunes U with a course in environmental psychology, Apple said.

Defensive tackle Lewis signs with UK timeout sports
NICK GRAY firstname.lastname@example.org
Junior college defensive tackle Melvin Lewis has signed with UK as a part of the class of 2013, according to his Twitter account. Lewis is a 6-foot-4, 320-pound defensive tackle who played two years at Fullerton Community College in Fullerton, Calif. Lewis originally is from Compton, Calif., where he attended Compton High School.
At Fullerton, Lewis was second on the team with sacks (3.5) last season. Lewis also was second in tackles for a loss (6) and sixth in total tackles (41) in 2012. His 2012 season earned himself All-State honors for Region IV by the California Community College Football Coaches Association. Lewis’ other offers were from Miami (Fla.), Washington and Hawaii, according to an interview with Wildcat Blue Nation. His national letter of intent means the Cats’ class of 2013 stands at 23, and Lewis is the fifth junior college player in the class.

The No. 21 UK gymnastics team travels to Muncie, Ind., to compete against the Ball State Cardinals on Sunday at 1 p.m. in Irving Gym. The Cats (5-4-1, 3-3-1 SEC) are coming off of a season-high score of 196.075 against No. 1 Florida in last week’s competition. Audrey Harrison won her sixth individual all-around title of the season in last week’s meet against Florida. UK is also coming off of season-high scores of 49-plus in vault and beam. The Cats come in ranked No. 16 nationally on beam, tied at No. 17 with Washington on uneven bars, No. 19 on floor exercise and No. 26 on vault. Ball State (5-5, 3-2 MAC) is competing back at home after falling to Bowling Green and Eastern Michigan. Brittney Emmons, from
Ball State, was the Cardinals’ top competitor in the last meet. The senior placed sixth in the all-around and finished second on vault with a 9.850. The Cardinals are ranked nationally No. 33 on vault, in a three-way tie for No. 41 on floor exercise with Northern Illinois and Boise State, tied for No. 46 with Utah State on beam, and are No. 50 on uneven bars. The meet is Senior Day for the Cardinals.

The No. 17/19 softball Cats will finish up their 19-game road trip to start the year by participating in the Under Armour Invitational in Tampa, Fla. The Cats are coming off a 3-0 performance at the weather-shortened Coke Zero Classic. Sophomore catcher Griffin Joiner led the Cats at the plate, hitting .583 with two home runs and eight RBIs. True freshman Kelsey Nunley leads the team with a 2.27 ERA, tallying seven wins in her first 10 appearances as a Cat.
Junior Lauren Cumbess has led the team from both behind the plate and on the mound this season. Cumbess is hitting a team-leading .452 with 15 RBIs, while also throwing two complete game wins with just a 3.23 ERA. UK will play five games over three days at the event, starting with a doubleheader on Friday against Illinois and host South Florida. The Cats will play two more games Saturday, squaring off against Loyola Marymount and Central Michigan. Lastly, UK and Western Michigan will square off for the second time this season on Sunday to close out the tournament.

CBS and Dish spar over tweet
LOS ANGELES — A tweet from Kaley Cuoco, co-star of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” is making a big bang of its own. Cuoco tweeted praise for Dish Network’s new DVR called the Hopper as part of an endorsement deal with the satellite broadcaster. She said, “Amazing! Watching live TV anywhere on the #Hopper looks pretty awesome! Now where can I find a tiny beer? #ad” Then the tweet disappeared and Dish accused CBS of ordering her to take it down. CBS is engaged in a legal fight with Dish over the commercial-skipping feature in its Hopper DVR. “It is disappointing that CBS — once the exemplar of editorial independence and innovation — continues to use its heavy hand to hold back progress from consumers,” Dish Chief Executive Joe Clayton said in a
statement. CBS didn’t like being dissed by Dish and fired back that it did not tell the actress to yank her tweet. “Once again Joe Clayton demonstrates his dubious gift for hyperbole and hucksterism. No demands were made, but it is clear that Dish’s culture of fabrication is alive and well,” CBS said in a statement. While all the networks — CBS, Fox, ABC and NBC — are engaged in litigation with Dish over its AutoHop commercial skipper, CBS’ fight has gotten particularly nasty. Last month, CBS-owned technology site CNET removed the Hopper from consideration for a top prize during a consumer electronics show. The litigation was cited as the reason but Dish cried foul. MCT

MacFarlane’s out, who’ll host?
STEVEN REA The Philadephia Inquirer (MCT)
Ratings were up, but thumbs are down. Seth MacFarlane, host of the unnecessarily long and offensive 85th Academy Awards show, has already tweeted that he won’t be back. And after some of his more questionable efforts to elicit laughs — jokes at the expense of women, Jews and Abraham Lincoln (“the actor who really got inside Lincoln’s head was John Wilkes Booth”), a lot of women, Jews and admirers of the 16th president won’t be sorry to see the “Family Guy” creator and Donny Osmond doppelganger go. So, who will the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the show’s producers round up next time? Here’s a handful of possible candidates: —Quvenzhané Wallis: Everybody loves the 9year-old best-actress nominee from “Beasts of
the Southern Wild,” and there’s no way she’s going to sing a number about actresses’ boobs, or pay attention to that Captain Kirk guy. She may, however, break into a cheery rendition of “The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow” — Wallis has been signed to star in the title role of a new “Annie” movie. —Bradley Cooper: Hey, he was People’s sexiest man alive, and he brought his mom to the Dolby Theatre on Oscar night. —Jennifer Lawrence: Wardrobe malfunction at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, falling flat on her face as she climbed the steps to receive her best-actress Oscar, Cooper’s “Silver Linings” leading lady is quick on her feet — when she’s on her feet, that is — and will draw in 100 billion “Hunger Games”-obsessed tweens, too. —Pope Benedict XVI: It’s going to get really boring in that Vatican retirement village, and the “emeritus pope” is rumored to be a huge Ben Affleck fan. 03.01.13 | weekend timeout | 11
