Dozens of students, including a self-described Pastafarian and members of UK’s OUTsource group for LGBT students, stood transfixed in the free speech area Monday by the words of Brother Jed Smock, who has been preaching at college campuses across the nation since 1975. While Smock and his wife, Sister Cindy, condemned students with various homophobic, religious and racial slurs, some members of OUTsource handed out condoms and held signs in opposition. The Smocks warned students of STDs and God’s wrath. “I pray that all you girls marry a (sexually) experienced man,” Jed Smock said. “But not one with a diseased penis.” Some people in the crowd responded. “That’s what condoms are for,” shouted a student in UK OUTsource.
Rally prepares students for homecoming game By Jacqueline Nie email@example.com
Students and alumni gathered to get pumped up for Saturday’s homecoming football game during a pep rally at Wildcat Alumni Plaza on Monday. The Wildcat Marching Band, UK Dance and Cheerleading teams and a few football players were transported to a game-day atmosphere by the “Voice of the Wildcats,” Carl Nathe. The Student Activities Board has teamed up with Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow to bring homecoming to campus. Homecoming this year is circus themed, called “Under the Big Blue Top,” and has been weaved into
many facets of this week’s events. “Homecoming is one of those campus traditions that not all students are aware of,” said Whitney Scott, STAT traditions chair and art history junior. Scott greatly anticipated the pep rally because she had been planning the event since the beginning of the school year, she said. She hoped free items like popcorn and pins would entice students to stay for the whole event. Although football coach Mark Stoops was not able to make an appearance, Scott said she took great pride in organizing the event. Chemistry freshman Amanda Cotter did not know what to expect of the pep rally, but believes it did
a great job getting fans ready for the game against Alabama State University. “It really pumped people up for the game,” Cotter said.

man and marching band member Chloe McIntosh said the band tries to get the crowd to reciprocate their energy. “We get pumped up, so I hope we pepped people up,” McIntosh said. Avery Williamson, a senior football captain, was a guest speaker at the pep rally.
Williamson talked about his hopes for the rest of the season and being encouraged by having the fans behind the team, especially for Saturday’s game. The homecoming game will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. in Commonwealth Stadium, and homecoming royalty will be crowned during the game.
UK men’s basketball head coach John Calipari will provide two UK students who attend Tuesday’s Blue-White Scrimmage with undergraduate tuition in the spring semester, UK Athletics announced in a press release. Students who are already enrolled in the university can sign up for a chance to win at the regular student entrance at Rupp Arena (Section 34 gate) after showing a valid UK student ID. Gates open at 6 p.m. and interested students must sign up before 7 p.m. The winners will be announced after the scrimmage. Selected students must be present in order to win. Upper level tickets ($5) can still be purchased at the UK Ticket Office, Rupp Arena Box Office or Ticketmaster. STAFF REPORT

US under pressure Amid European uproar over phone monitoring, White House sees need for change By Leslie Clark, Hannad Adams, and Johnathon S. Landay McClatchy Washington Bureau (MCT)
WASHINGTON — Under mounting pressure from new revelations that the United States collected the telephone data of tens of millions of Europeans, the Obama administration on Monday said that there is a need for new constraints on U.S. intelligence-gathering operations and a top senator announced that the spying on U.S. allies would stop. In an interview aired late Monday by a new cable television outlet, Fusion, President Barack Obama declined to discuss the communications monitoring operations of the National Security Agency, including whether the NSA tapped the telephones of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and 34 other world leaders. The storm battering Obama over the revelations of U.S. data-gathering and communications monitoring in France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Mexico and Brazil showed no sign of abating. Outlined in top-secret documents leaked to news media by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, the disclosures are bruising ties with some of the closest U.S. allies, adding to the domestic outcry over the NSA’s collection of data from millions of Americans’ communications as part of an effort to unearth terrorist plots.
“Obama must feel very uneasy and embarrassed right now,” said Hans Christian Stroebel, the longest serving member of the German Parliament’s intelligence committee. Administration officials, however, continued fending off questions about details of the operations, including when they began and — in the case of the tapping of the phones of Merkel and the other world leaders — how high up the command chain they were authorized. There were complaints that the administration has been keeping the U.S. intelligence community’s congressional overseers in the dark as well. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif, announced that the panel would conduct “a major review into all intelligence collection programs.” “It is my understanding that President Obama was not aware Chancellor Merkel’s communications were being collected since 2002. That is a big problem,” she added in a statement. “The White House has informed me that collection on our allies will not continue, which I support. But as far as I’m concerned, Congress needs to know exactly what our intelligence community is doing.” MCT
UK Concealed Carry seeks change Group to host empty holster protest, push for law allowing guns on campus By Will Wright
Students will hold an empty holster protest at the Student Center outside Starbucks on Tuesday with the goal of promoting the right for students with concealed carry permits to carry guns on campus. UK’s chapter of Students for Concealed Carry hopes a law will be passed that will force public email@example.com
sities to uphold people’s right to carry concealed weapons on campus if they have a permit, said Tyler Waide, Kentucky director of Students for Concealed Carry and president of the UK chapter. “I don’t think it gets much more important than this,” said Waide, a political science senior. “It’s a safety issue and safety comes first.” Right now, Waide said,
it is legal for people with permits to carry concealed guns in Kentucky, but UK can punish students for breaking its ban on concealed firearms on campus. He said the university reserves the right to suspend or expel students who do not abide by the campus rules. “It’s really a civil rights issue,” Waide said. Allowing students to carry guns on campus would allow people to protect
themselves, Waide said, creating a safer campus. “(UK’s rule) really doesn’t make any sense to me,” Waide said. “Especially for women, guns are the ultimate equalizer.” Students for Concealed Carry formed after the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting, and Waide said he is optimistic that a conservative push among the public will allow for progress to be made during the upcoming elections. “It’s going to be a big shift for the conservatives,” Waide said. “I don’t think we’re that far (from passing the law).”

UK professor tracks interstellar conditions ‘Cloudy’ program receives grant By Anne Halliwell
Since the beginning of the “space age” in 1957, many questions regarding what lies beyond our atmosphere have been raised and answered. One more answer can be documented with a UK professor’s development of a program to track interstellar conditions. “The game we play in astronomy is … (even though) we can’t experiment, we can’t recreate … we have a big advantage over chemistry or physics,” physics and astronomy professor Gary Ferland said. “We can look into the past.” Ferland developed the “Cloudy” program, which firstname.lastname@example.org
uses a code “designed to simulate conditions in interstellar matter under a broad range of conditions” according to the program’s web page. The program has received several grants from the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, the most recent of which came Oct. 1. The program’s function isn’t quite that complicated, Ferland said. “It’s a kind of inverse analysis … we can deduce what’s going on across the universe,” he said. Ferland explained that “Cloudy” uses the established laws of physics to simulate atomic processes that are or could be taking place across the universe,
then determines the type of light that would reach Earth from that type of event. “Astronomy is not an experimental science. We cannot go out and touch a star or visit another galaxy,” Ferland said. “What this means is that you have to be very good at remote sensing.” Astronomers must pass the light from these happenings through a spectrometer, which turns the light into a rainbow, allowing them to analyze the information, Ferland said. Since its formation in 1978 and its status as an open program since 1980, Ferland said “Cloudy” has become one of the most widely-used codes in theoretical astrophysics. He said it can be downloaded from nublado.org, which has contributed to its use in projects around the world. Cloudy is used to interpret findings from space telescopes, and is being prepped to handle information from the upcoming James Webb telescope, which is slated to launch in
2018, and the ALMA telescope, which is the product of collaboration between Europe, North America and East Asia. Ferland said that many of his studies analyze how stars are formed and how gravity pulls matter into that shape. He said he is also currently investigating how atoms that were not created in the Big Bang came to be. “The big question is ‘Where did the atoms in our bodies come from?’” he said. Only helium and hydrogen were created by the Big Bang, which did not explain the origins of atoms like carbon, oxygen and iron that are found in the human body, Ferland said. However, Cloudy has helped to shed some light on the matter. Stars’ nuclear reactions can create the atoms that make up our bodies, Ferland said. “We’re waste products of a nuclear reactor,” he said.

Who should take the helm for UK football? Kernel columnists present arguments for both sophomore quarterbacks
Max Smith best fits UK’s Air Raid offense NICK GRAY Sports Editor
The Cats were driving the football against Mississippi State’s defense 29 yards from a landmark victory for UK head coach Mark Stoops. Sophomore quarterback Maxwell Smith sandwiched a fourth-down conversion on the ground with four completions, and faced a 3rd-and-7 with less than a minute left and the Cats trailing by six. Smith was given the keys to the offense for the first time with no interruption. Then, almost as a kryptonite disguised in a white No. 2 jersey, sophomore quarterback Jalen Whitlow came in, ran into the Mississippi State defensive line and ran off. Even if the coaches designed it, the play illustrated two points: Stoops and his offensive staff do not trust Smith, and when the Cats absolutely need to move the football, Whitlow is better on the ground than in the air. Smith should be the quarterback because the Cats can move the ball through the air with him under center against those defenses not named Florida and Alabama. But the coaches inadvertently took away his best
chance to prove his worth at the helm of the offense and put that chance in the legs of Whitlow. Once Smith came back in on fourth down, his chance to lead the offense for good, much less win the game, was mangled and torn up on the sideline, and thrown in the trash the moment his fourth down pass fell to the turf.
But if the goal is to simply score and not necessarily win football games, Stoops, Brown and the Cats have achieved their marks.” NICK GRAY Granted, Whitlow made these cameos throughout the second half as the Cats forged their comeback. But his entrance into this drive sealed UK’s fate and the fate of Smith’s career in Lexington. Smith’s fourth down pass had little chance, with his confidence and timing looking exactly like a quarterback whose coaches don’t completely trust him when the bacon needs to be brought home.
But Smith has been treated this way all season. No matter the fact that he fits the offense of offensive coordinator Neal Brown to a “T.” Smith is a quarterback who will not wow opposing defenses with his velocity even with a shoulder that is not ailing. His experience in leading the UK offense has shown his accuracy is usually good, especially on quick timing routes. Those routes fill Brown’s playbook. Smith excelled with the offense against Mississippi State, not just due to producing scoring drives on the road against a conference opponent, but because it has been some time since an offense at UK has looked competitive throughout the entirety of the game. Whitlow has shown the ability to piece together scoring drives himself. But if the goal is to simply score and not necessarily win football games, Stoops, Brown and the Cats have achieved their marks. Whitlow has had time to prove he could move the ball through the air and win, and in that time he has failed to do either thing. In this offense and this conference, a quarterback who cannot throw the football cannot win games.
Does a salary’s quantity lead to education quality? MATT YOUNG
Tuition is expensive. According to the UK website, tuition is about $5,000 for residents and twice that for non-residents, and costs have been rising for years. With the economy still damaged from the financial collapse in 2007, many new college graduates are struggling to find a job in the field of their study. Found on the Bureau of Labor Statistics website, the unemployment rate still stubbornly hovers near 13 percent for males and females ages 20-24, and many more are employed only part-time. It might be time to ask what we are getting for our money and where our money is going. A recent study conducted at Northwestern University says tuition money may be going to overpaid teachers. The study found that students learn more from nontenure and non-tenure track faculty. This means students are learning less from the people that are paid more, largely from our own tuition dollars, and the salaries of tenured professors are increasing faster than average according to the American Association of University Professors. Data found on educationnews.org lists the average salaries for UK faculty at $46,562 for lecturers, $59,250 for instructors, $68,124 for assistant professors, $75,670 for associate professors and $104,099 for professors. They also list 1,153 as tenured or ontenure track, while only 123 non-tenure track.
This is not only a big deal for students but every Kentuckian as well. According to Angie Martin, vice president of financial operations, UK receives $284 million per year, paid out in quarterly installments from the Commonwealth of Kentucky. On top of that it receives $228 million per year from federal funding in grants and contracts. That is over half a billion dollars per year the state and nation has invested in the Wildcat family. Are we all getting our money’s worth? Often tenure-track professors are professional educators and have been teaching for years. While this can be a positive in many ways, it means that they lack some of the real world experience that can be brought in by adjunct and non-track instructors and used as a valuable teaching tool. Adjunct teaching is an attractive position as well, paying $1,500$6,000 per course at UK, according to the Adjunct Chronicle Project. So, should the university dump tenured and track faculty altogether, and give students a better education for less tuition? It is too tough a call to make. The study at Northwestern should be taken with a grain of salt; only basic level courses were included in the study. Adjunct and non-track professors may not have the expertise and knowledge to teach courses at the higher level, particularly in the hard sciences. So much of the research and development in the hard sciences comes from universities across the country because of the funding available to them. UK in particular is one of the nation’s major research universities and a huge part of
the Lexington economy. To have a top researcher, working on a cutting edge development in medicine, agriculture or biology step out of the lab and into a classroom to pass on their knowledge and accelerate scientific advancement through the next generation is a priceless opportunity for students and a very beneficial one for UK. Advancements as significant as finding cures from the common cold to cancer, developing the next generation of antibiotic, or developing crops resistant to droughts, global warming or infestation could all come from someone with “University of Kentucky” on their resume. That does not just help the university, that can make our degrees more impressive as well, and it will help Lexington and Kentucky as well. In research, as in all things, money talks. Without the salaries we may lose those same researchers to a university that will pay what they feel they deserve. On the other hand, if our tenured professors are simply sucking up our tuition dollars to pay for their next trip to Keeneland, we have a serious issue that needs to be addressed. You can find out exactly how much each of your instructors are being paid by searching the public records database from the Lexington Herald-Leader. The six figure salaries UK pays its tenured professors may be worth it, but with tuition consistently increasing, and good jobs hard to come by for young grads, it is certainly time to start asking the question.

Jalen Whitlow offers Cats more consistency KEVIN ERPENBECK Sports Writer
As the game clock struck zero against Mississippi State University, UK fans were left looking at the loss column increase to six on the season. A match, which many considered to be a winnable game before it began, was added to the “just not good enough” category when it ended. One word that comes up in every instance under those “just not good enough” games is consistency, or more accurately, the lack thereof. It is an acceptable excuse to rely upon early on in a season. But there gets to be a point where the excuse of inconsistency just becomes “noise.” We are at that point in the season. The Cats have not been very consistent all across the board. The rushing has been anemic, ranking next to last in the SEC. They also rank next to last in the conference in first downs, and dead last in third-down efficiency (25 percent). The most glaring aspect of the team lacking consistency, however, is at the most important position in the game of football: the quarterback position. Sophomore Maxwell Smith appeared poised to take the starting job after fellow sophomore Jalen
Whitlow was inefficient in UK’s season-opener against Western Kentucky University. Smith began his starting tenure lighting up the stat sheet against Miami University, throwing for 310 yards and three touchdowns. In four starts since then, however, Smith has been inaccurate with his passes and inefficient at moving the ball down the field. Smith’s most striking act of inconsistency is in his completion percentage, as he ranks next to last in the SEC in completion percentage with a 54.8 percent. True, Smith almost never turns it over, only throwing one interception in the

entire season. Keeping the ball away from the defenders does not do much good, however, if it is just punted back to the other side thanks to multiple incompletions and few drive-sustaining first downs. Meanwhile, Whitlow has been mostly subjugated to coming into games off
the bench to add a “different pace of offense” to the team. While he has fared a little better than Smith in completing his passes and moving the ball down the field, Whitlow has nearly half of the passing attempts that Smith does and is seen as more of a running quarterback than a passing quarterback. Neither quarterback has gotten the amount of time in a game needed to develop into a full-blown starter. Experience matters when developing a starter, and constantly subbing in two different quarterbacks in a game is not the typical, or preferred, way to do it. So the question remains: Who should be the consistent starter? Smith, who is clearly the more passing quarterback of the two (stats aside), or Whitlow, whose legs add a different and slightly more productive style of offense to the team? As the starting quarterback job remains foggy, one thing is clear: The system of two different quarterbacks in the offense has not and will not bring consistency to the position. As long as the clear starting job remains void, UK will continue to be inconsistent at the head of the team, and fans will continue to hear and grow sick of the “noise” after every “just not good enough” loss.

Calipari preaches progress UK basketball prepares for new rules in Blue-White Scrimmage By Nick Gray
UK’s progress, head coach John Calipari says year after year, will take time before the Cats are ready to play in March and beyond. “I don’t need a team playing in October like it’s January,” Calipari said at this year’s media day on Oct. 15. The next step in the progression comes at 7 p.m. on Tuesday at Rupp Arena when the roster is split into two teams for the annual Blue-White Scrimmage. Tuesday’s scrimmage will be the first chance for UK fans to see the heralded freshmen class for a more extended period than the email@example.com
minute scrimmage with a running clock at Big Blue Madness two weeks ago. Though the Cats do go through periods of five-onfive basketball during practices, Tuesday will be the first time the 16-man roster will play in a full-length scrimmage in public. If practices are as intense as freshman guard Andrew Harrison suggests, Tuesday’s scrimmage will not take any extra physical toll than normal. “Everyone wants to win every drill, and every sprint. What is crazy about it is you have to actually be mentally prepared for practice because it’s pretty much a war,” Harrison said. “I’m excited for practice every day because I
know we are going to get into it and it’s going to be like a real game.” Harrison credited the competitiveness of his teammates in motivating him during times when game situations don’t have meaning. “You definitely have to learn, the first few practices are definitely the hardest,” Harrison said. “Sometimes you don’t feel like practicing, but once you get in there and you see the competitiveness you can’t do anything but bring up the level.” The game will be contested under a live clock and officials. The new rules on fouls will debut at Rupp Arena, as officials have been instructed by the NCAA to call offensive charges and “touch” fouls dif-
ferently than in the past. The NCAA has reestablished a charge as the defender being in a defensive position before the offensive player begins an “upward motion” instead of when the offensive player’s feet leave the ground. Officials have also been told “hand-checking,” when the defender uses his hands or arms to impede the movement of the offensive player, is now a foul. Calipari believes the rules, if enforced, will help scoring rise and increase the quality of games. “So I think it’s good for the game, but we’ll see,” Calipari said. “What we all say is they’ll call it in November and

Jalen Whitlow lies on the ground after being injured in a game against University of Alabama on Oct. 12. By Matt Overing
UK head coach Mark Stoops wants his team to play more like other schools in the SEC. In his Monday press conference, Stoops said he expects more toughness from his players moving forward. “I think that toughness comes from a culture, and we’re trying to build it,” Stoops said. “I don’t think we’re there yet.” Stoops said he admires SEC players like South Carolina senior quarterback Connor Shaw and Texas A&M sophomore quarterback Johnny Manziel. Both played through injuries last week, and both led their respective teams to victory. “I’ve always admired how tough (Shaw) was, and you can see the leadership firstname.lastname@example.org
and you can see the way his team responds to him,” Stoops said. “Johnny Manziel goes out there ... he’s a Heisman Trophy winner and up for it again and goes out and plays banged up.” Junior defensive end Bud Dupree was one player that Stoops said the team needs to rally around. Dupree had a career-high 13 tackles, including two for a loss and a sack, against Mississippi State University on Thursday after missing a game 12 days earlier due to a pectoral injury. “Bud goes out and... plays his tail off, gives unbelievable effort, unbelievable leadership,” Stoops said. “We need Bud out there, and Bud showed me that. He’s not feeling great, and went out and played one of his best games ever. Hopefully that’ll get contagious.”
UK sophomore quarterbacks Maxwell Smith and Jalen Whitlow have been battling injuries for parts of the last six weeks. Stoops said he wants his quarterbacks to show toughness. “We have to learn to differentiate between being injured and just being a little bit banged up,” Stoops said. “That’s for the players and for the trainers to decide. But if they can go, they need to go.” Stoops said freshman quarterback Reese Phillips would be the next quarterback in line behind Smith and Whitlow. “We will get Reese some reps in practice (this week),” Stoops said. “He’s definitely going to be an option. Reese, he’s always done a nice job of managing the game.” Phillips has not played in a single game this season. In the spring game, Phillips completed 10-of-12 passes for 75 yards and a touchdown. Stoops said there hasn’t been a quarterback to take the starting job outright thus far, and that is why Phillips will get a chance. “We keep on waiting, and you know that; we all do,” Stoops said. “We wait for our other quarterbacks to take it and run.” Whitlow has started four games this season while Smith has started three. Smith has the statistical edge in the passing game, throwing the ball for 870 yards and six touchdowns

while starting the win against Miami University (Ohio). Whitlow has thrown for 504 yards and three touchdowns and added 250 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns. Stoops said injuries have slowed Whitlow’s ascension to leadership this season. “I think Jalen is the guy that has been very close to leading us, and then we get an injury and set us back, and that can’t happen,” Stoops said. “We’ve just got to stay healthy. We’ve got to be stronger, we have to protect him better, and if he does go down we’ve got to be better prepared for somebody else to lead us.”

Police investigate incident at Newtown Apartment resident approached at bridge
Lexington Police are searching for leads in a weekend incident near the bridge at the Newton Crossing apartment complex. Lt. Chris Young of the Lexington Police Department said the incident occurred on the Scott Street side of the bridge at approximately 11:15 p.m. on Saturday. The victim was approached by four males, one of whom displayed a handgun, who demanded the victim’s money. The victim is a resident of Newtown Crossing. Young said the department is actively searching for any leads that will point to a
suspect. “These guys kind of show up and disappear,” Young said. “We are looking for any information at all.” Young said nothing similar to this event has occurred recently, and events such as this “rear their ugly heads” and occur randomly. “It just takes a general reminder,” Young said. “It’s common sense, but it just takes a reminder.” Young advised students to avoid walking alone at night at all costs, whether male or female. Doing so creates an opportunity for those looking to take advantage of a situation similar to this, he said.
“Pay attention to your surroundings. Don’t get caught up talking on your phone or texting with your heads down,” Young said. “Make eye contact with people when you (see them).” Young said the department takes these incidents seriously and encourages anyone with any information to report the information to the police. “If anyone sees anything out of place or (something suspicious), call us immediately and let us get in touch with those folks who try to do these types of things.” STAFF REPORT
Penn State confirms $59.7 million in settlements with 26 men claiming abuse by Sandusky By Mike Dawson
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Penn State has paid $59.7 million in out-of-court settlements to 26 men claiming they were abused by former football coach and convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky, the university reported Monday. Penn State reviewed claims brought by 32 men, and 23 of those have been signed, the university said. There remain three settlements in principle and the documentation will be finalized over the next few weeks, the university said. The other six claims were rejected because they were found to be “without merit,” the university said. Centre Daily Times (MCT)
“We hope this is another step forward in the healing process for those hurt by Mr. Sandusky, and another step forward for Penn State,” President Rodney Erickson said in a statement. “We cannot undo what has been done, but we can and must do everything possible to learn from this and ensure it never happens again at Penn State.” The announcement on Monday was the first and apparently last official word the university has given about the specific details in the Sandusky settlement process, which was authorized in July during the board of trustees meeting. University officials have said they would only release the amount of the
combined settlements once they were finalized, though trustee Ted Brown later said $60 million was the amount approved for all settlements combined. Penn State said liability insurance policies are expected to cover the settlement amounts and the legal defense against the claims brought against the university, employees and trustees. The university said any expenses that are not covered by the insurance will be paid from interest on loans the university made to other units on campus.
