The time for action is now, Allen said, and the results will benefit the Milwaukee community on multiple levels. Sustainable agriculture will not only allow Milwaukee residents to stop choosing processed and chemically-modified food, but it will also stimulate the economy and create stable jobs in the community, he said. He pointed to abandoned buildings in Milwaukee like the A.O. Smith building that could be used for growing food or as a fish hatchery. Growing Power, he added, has never laid anyone off and is continuing to create jobs despite the current economy. “If we’re so idealistic that we don’t do anything, we hurt the people we’re trying to help,” Allen said. “We can’t be afraid to take a risk.” Although he acknowledged the urban farm movement is still in its early stages, Allen said Growing Power’s mindset is simple. “We all have to eat food to survive,” he said. “Why don’t we all eat good food?”

Budget lapse will affect state agencies UW system faces largest two-year fund forfeiture By Pat Simonaitis patrick.simonaitis@marquette.edu

The University of Wisconsin school system, state health services and other Wisconsin agencies may be forced to return funding in the event of a budget lapse, the Wisconsin Department of Administration determined earlier this month. A lapse occurs when state revenues from taxes do not fulfill original revenue estimates — as the Department of Administration is currently expecting to the sum of $174 million. For the 2012 and 2013 fiscal years, agencies will be asked to return previously allocated funds to the state in order to avoid a statewide deficit. The University of Wisconsin School Systems has to plan for the largest cut, $65.9 million over the next two years. David Giroux, executive director of communications and external relations for the UW system, said the cuts UW schools are being asked to make are clearly disproportionate to what the other agencies’ cuts. The schools are asked to take on 38 percent of the additional cuts despite being only 7 percent of the state’s expenses, he said. “Our reaction includes surprise, dismay, shock,” Giroux said. “I could run through the thesaurus.” He said while the system knew additional cuts were coming,

he never expected the number would be so high. “Most people don’t understand why students would be asked to take this on at a time when higher education is so critical to economic success,” Giroux said. The next largest cuts will fall on state health services, which will be asked to cut $26.6 million through 2013. Mike Huebsch, secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Administration, has defended the budget plan from criticism since its announcement in a letter to the agencies Oct. 14. “As you are aware, the national and global economies are still recovering from one of the worst recessions in 70 years,” Huebsch said in the letter. “While the Wisconsin economy continues to recover, the potential impact of these national and global trends is undeniable.” In an interview on Wisconsin Public Television, Huebsch said the state is just planning in case of a shortfall in the expected revenues, saying a “softer economic future” may be on the horizon. “We’re hoping for the best, planning for the worst,” he said in the interview. Tom Luljac, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee spokesman, said he did not know how the plan would be administered at campus level yet and that the school was standing behind the system reaction offered by Giroux. “It’s frustrating,” Giroux said. “At one point (the UW schools) were facing $250 million in cuts over the next two years ... we dug our way out of that hole and got on with our lives, and

we get hit with this. It’s tough to take on halfway through the academic year.” Giroux said the cuts would negatively impact students across the state, saying the already strapped system would have trouble offering the highest quality educational experience. Hythem Abad, a junior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said he and other students have already begun to feel the effects of budget cuts in Madison. Abad said the school is cutting his major of microbiology and immunology next semester. Abad said students were informed the budget was being cut by 11 percent and his major being cut was the result of the inability of the school to replace retiring professors. “(The cuts) are pretty bad for incoming students because they’re limiting what people can do when they get here,” Abad said. “College is supposed to be all about trying new things and figuring out what you like and what you want to do, but when you’re cutting majors you’re limiting that.” Becky Lindholm, a junior at UW-Milwaukee, said the cuts made her feel like the government wasn’t putting higher education as a priority. “They shouldn’t take money away from the schools and the students,” Lindholm said. “There is no way that schools are going to be able to cope with the budget cuts without layoffs and cutting programs that will ultimately damage the quality of our education.”

Wis. drops welfare drug testing Who

States enact laws to prevent abuse of welfare benefits By Elise Angelopulos elise.angelopulos@marquette.edu

This year, 36 states may establish a requirement for those who want welfare: passing a government-issued drug test. As of Monday, Wisconsin will take itself off that list. A provision included in an unemployment bill brought before the state legislature would have required a drug test for those receiving unemployment benefits, but the measure was removed by legislators. In Wisconsin last year, more than $3.1 billion was spent in unemployment and welfare payments, according to The Cap Times, who also estimated that Wisconsin could have saved approximately $250 million had the provision been kept.

Laws have already passed in Arizona, Indiana and Missouri implementing the new requirement. In Florida, people receiving welfare are now required to pay for their own drug tests, resulting in the lowest welfare enrollment levels since the start of the recession. Florida residents who do not pass the drug test are denied benefits up to one year, although payments for children of drug users may be administered to another stable relative, according to The New York Times. The controversial laws have not only challenged possible welfare recipients, but may also impact government structures across the country. The American Civil Liberties Union, which last month filed a lawsuit against the bill, argued that the requirement presents an unreasonable “search and seizure.” The Wisconsin chapter of the union recently filed an appeal against the bill,

according to The Cap Times. Roberta Coles, professor and chair of social and cultural sciences at Marquette, said if recipients are denied welfare because of drug usage, non profit or private practices offering economic aid may be available, although the prospects are highly unlikely. “Those programs would nowhere near provide the amount of money and stability that welfare supplies,” Coles said. Matt Zern, a sophomore in the College of Business Administration, said drug tests are necessary to prevent welfare participants from abusing the system. “If people want welfare and want to gain from their government, then they should follow the laws it puts in place,” Zern said. Supporters of the laws say the ultimate goal is to ensure hard-earned tax dollars are properly spent. Emily May, a senior in the College of Arts & Sciences, said the bill somewhat defeats the purpose of welfare and will not

prove to be beneficial. “If people have a drug issue that is a serious concern, that should be taken as a separate issue,” May said. But Coles said many people on welfare are not taking drugs, and this new initiative is just another hurdle the poor must overcome. Besides the drug test requirement for welfare, some states have taken the proposal even further. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, many states are issuing drug tests as a requirement for receiving other benefits, like food stamps and heating services. Margaret Grace, a sophomore in the College of Arts & Sciences, said the drug test requirement could have negative effects. “I think it is well-intentioned,” Grace said. “But I think that it may perpetuate the problems associated with poverty and possibly make them worse.”

University gears up for reaccreditation

Self-evaluation process to take place in 2013-2014 By Katie Doherty kathleen.doherty@marquette.edu

Marquette recently began preparations for a self-study process and peer-reviewed reaccreditation site visit from the Higher Learning Commission during the 2013-2014 school year. The university has developed a steering committee that will focus

on all aspects of campus, forming sub-committees represented by faculty, staff and students. The reaccreditation process is necessary to ensure Marquette is up to current educational standards. Gary Meyer, vice provost for undergraduate programs and teaching, was selected to chair the steering committee. Toby Peters, associate senior vice-president, will co-chair the committee. Peters said two years is really not a long time to prepare for this visit. “It’s very intentional to get all corners of the university

involved,” Peters said. Although the peer-reviewed reaccreditation process is technically voluntary, students cannot receive any federal financial aid without it. “We voluntarily put ourselves through this process to demonstrate that we are operating at the highest level,” Meyers said. The Higher Learning Commission requires five categories criteria for reaccreditation: mission and integrity; preparing for the future; student learning and effective teaching; acquisition, discovery and application of

knowledge; and engagement and service. The reaffirmation subcommittees will follow the criteria, and additional subcommittees will focus on federal compliance, evidence, communication and the actual site visit. The same subcommittees will assist in coordinating the visit and informing the Marquette community of the process. Each sub-committee is co-chaired and will include 12-15 members from across campus. David Buckholdt, founding

director of the university’s Center for Teaching and Learning, has chaired peer-review visits of other schools for the Higher Learning Commission. He said the role of the visit will check that Marquette meets the five criteria and provide consultation on how to note and improve Marquette’s strengths and weaknesses. “It will give everyone here a chance to reflect on what we’ve accomplished since the last visit and where we want to go in the future,” Buckholdt said. These voluntary visits happen roughly every 10 years. Peters said this reaccreditation visit will be different than last year’s because the Rev. Scott Pilarz, Marquette’s new president, can highlight his plans for the future. “You know, he has a vision for taking Marquette to the next level,” Peters said. “How can we be better?” Meyers and Peters said that close to 200 faculty, staff, administrators and students will be involved in this process by the 2013-2014 site visit. “I think it brings staff, faculty and administrators together in a way we don’t always do,” Meyers said. He said there really is no formula in planning for the visit. “Sometimes you see that at universities where only a handful of people write the self-study,” Meyers said. “That’s not what I want to do here.” Meyers and Peters said they will both continue to discuss this process to groups across campus. Groups who want a presentation should contact the two directly.

Milwaukee will debut bilingual ballots Voting instructions to be written in Spanish and English By Ben McCormick Special to the Tribune

When Marquette students head to the polls in February to vote in city primary elections, things will look different. The City of Milwaukee is now required by the U.S. Census Bureau to provide voting ballots and instructions in both English and Spanish. The measure was passed down from the federal government on Oct. 12. The new voting requirements are a result of Milwaukee’s Spanish-speaking population with limited English proficiency

exceeding 5 percent. The new measure makes Milwaukee the first jurisdiction in Wisconsin to make changes to the voting process to help accommodate Spanish speakers. Compliance with the new requirements requires changes in three areas: making bilingual ballots, hiring bilingual poll workers for each polling site and translating all signs, notices and election-related internet content from the City of Milwaukee into Spanish. Initially, Sue Edman, the City Election Commission executive director, believed Milwaukee would need to separate ballots for its voters, but that is not the case. Edman said Milwaukee voters would instead receive one ballot with an English section and a Spanish section below it. The city will hire someone to translate the ballot and the city

government will reformat it to fit those specifications. Edman said the city is working with the Hispanic community to recruit bilingual people to work at the polls. The hiring of bilingual poll workers will prove to be more of an administrative challenge than a financial strain for the city. “Because there are so many changes taking place because of voter ID, our plan was to put additional poll workers at each polling site anyway,” Edman said. “We’ll just add bilingual workers to our teams at polling sites.” Edman said the difficulty of hiring bilingual workers for each of the 183 polling sites “shouldn’t be that bad.” “We recruit poll workers for our largest elections anyway,” she said. “We’re just going to have to work a little bit harder

and reach out to the Hispanic community and get more of them involved.” Due to the new requirements, some non-bilingual poll workers from the past may not be allowed to work the polls again, Edman said. All signs, notices and webbased content posted by the city about elections will be translated into Spanish. Additionally, when the city posts an election-related advertisement in an English language newspaper or other publication, a Spanish advertisement must also appear in a Spanish language newspaper or publication. The translation of signs posted on election day are the responsibility of the Government Accountability Board. Milwaukee’s total Spanishspeaking population has exceeded 60,000 people, according to Edman, making up at least 10

percent of the entire Milwaukee population. The Hispanic population is concentrated in the eighth and twelfth districts, an area spanning between Interstate 794 and Oklahoma Avenue to the North and South and the Kinnickinnic River and Miller Parkway to the east and west. Making the Milwaukee voting process bilingual is an effort to achieve the greatest voter turnout possible, Edman said. “In the past maybe (the language barrier) made some people feel uncomfortable,” Edman said. “Maybe they’re more likely to get involved in the electoral process … we may see them come out now and vote.” The new requirements will be met and in place in time for the Feb. 21 elections, over a month before Wisconsin’s presidential primary, scheduled for April 3.

Occupy Oakland protests turn violent Demonstrators wary of increased use of police force By Marcus Wohlsen and Terry Collins Associated Press

The display of police force in Oakland, Calif., and Atlanta has unnerved some anti-Wall Street protesters. While demonstrators in other cities have built a working relationship with police and city leaders, they wondered on Wednesday how long the good spirit would last and whether they could be next. Will they have to face riot gearclad officers and tear gas that their counterparts in Oakland, Calif. faced on Tuesday? Or will they be handcuffed and hauled away in the middle of the night like protesters in Atlanta? “Yes, we’re afraid. Is this the night they’re going to sneak in?” said activist William Buster of Occupy Wall Street, where the movement began last month to protest what they see as corporate greed. “Is this the night they might use unreasonable force?” he asked. The message, meanwhile, from officials in cities where other encampments have sprung up was simple: We’ll keep working with you. Just respect your neighbors and keep the camps clean and safe. Business owners and residents have complained in recent weeks about assaults, drunken fights and sanitation problems. Officials are trying to balance their rights and uphold the law while honoring protesters’ free speech rights. “I understand the frustration the protesters feel ... about inequity in our country as well as Wall Street greed,” Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said. “I support their right to free speech but we also have rules and laws.” Some cities, such as Providence, R.I., are moving ahead with plans to evict activists. But from Tampa, Fla., to Boston, police and city leaders say they will continue to try to work with protesters to address problems in the camps. In Oakland, officials initially supported the protests, with Mayor Jean Quan saying that sometimes “democracy is messy.”

But tensions reached a boiling point after a sexual assault, a severe beating and a fire were reported and paramedics were denied access to the camp, according to city officials. They also cited concerns about rats, fire hazards and public urination. Demonstrators disputed the city’s claims, saying that volunteers collect garbage and recycling every six hours, that water is boiled before being used to wash dishes and that rats have long infested the park. When riot gear-clad police moved in early Tuesday, they were pelted with rocks, bottles and utensils from people in the camp’s kitchen area. They emptied the camp near city hall of people, and barricaded the plaza. Protesters were taken away in plastic handcuffs, most of them arrested on suspicion of illegal lodging. Demonstrators returned later in the day to march and retake the plaza. They were met by police officers in riot gear. Several small skirmishes broke out and officers cleared the area by firing tear gas. The scene repeated itself several times just a few blocks away in front of the plaza. Tensions would build as protesters edged ever closer to the police line and reach a breaking point with a demonstrator hurling a bottle or rock, prompting police to respond with another round of gas. The chemical haze hung in the air for hours, new blasts clouding the air before the previous fog could dissipate. The number of protesters diminished with each round of tear gas. Police estimated that there were roughly 1,000 demonstrators at the first clash following the march. About 100 were arrested. Among the demonstrators injured was Scott Olsen, a 24-yearold Marine veteran who served two tours in Iraq. Dottie Guy, of the Iraq Veterans Against the War, a veterans advocacy group, said Olsen was hit by a projectile while marching toward city hall and suffered a fractured skull. A hospital spokesman said Olsen was in critical condition. It was not clear who threw the projectile. Demonstrators planned to try again on Wednesday night to march, and could clash again with police.

In Atlanta, police in riot gear and SWAT teams arrested 53 people in Woodruff Park, many of whom had camped out there for weeks as part of a widespread movement that is protesting the wealth disparity between the rich and everyone else. Mayor Kasim Reed had been supportive of the protests, twice issuing an executive order allowing them to remain. Reed said on Wednesday that he had no choice to arrest them because he believed things were headed in a direction that was no longer peaceful. He cited a man seen walking the park with an AK-47 assault rifle. “There were some who wanted to continue along the peaceful lines, and some who thought that their path should be more radical,” Reed said. “As mayor, I couldn’t wait for them to finish that debate.” Reed said authorities could not determine whether the rifle was loaded, and were unable to get additional information. An Associated Press reporter talked to the man with the gun earlier Tuesday. He wouldn’t give his name — identifying himself only as “Porch,” an out-of-work accountant who doesn’t agree with the protesters’ views — but said that he was there, armed, because he wanted to protect the rights of people to protest. People who were arrested trickled out of jail as a crowd of several dozen supporters chanted “freedom” as they left. “I think Mayor Reed would do well to learn quickly that you cannot intimidate, you cannot threaten, you cannot jail something whose time has come,” activist Derrick Boazman said. “The fact of the matter is this movement’s time has come.” In Portland, Ore., the protest seems to be at a crossroads. Organizers have been dealing with public drunkenness, fighting and drug abuse for weeks, especially among the homeless who are also in the camp. Some are floating the idea of relocating it, possibly indoors. Others see that as capitulation. “I don’t know if it would be a good idea. Part of the effectiveness of what’s going on here is visibility,” protester Justin Neff said. “Though I’d do it if there’s a possibility that we’d get seen and noticed. I don’t know how that

would work indoors.” City officials haven’t said what would cause them to forcibly evict the protesters. They said they evaluate the camp daily. In Baltimore, protesters like Casey McKeel, a member of Occupy Baltimore’s legal committee, said he wasn’t sure aren’t sure what to expect from city officials, noting that some cities have arrested protesters in recent weeks. “Across the country we’re seeing a wide range of reactions,” he said. “For now we’re hoping the city will work with us.” The mayor, Rawlings-Blake, said she is willing to work with

them, but they should realize that they are camping out in a city park and that was not its intended use. She said their free-speech rights don’t trump the public’s right to enjoy the space. “I have absolutely no interest in a violent exchange,” she said. “We want to work with the protesters, but the point is to talk about inequity and talk about how we can work together to have a more just society or more equitable Baltimore. “It’s not about pitching a tent. It’s about getting the work done,” she said.

BABY JANE GOES Cult classic film adapted to MKE stage By Vanessa Harris vanessa.harris@marquette.edu

Off The Wall Theatre is the little engine that could of Milwaukee-area theater companies. Tucked away on Wells Street and not too far from Red Arrow Park, it is not hard to pass by the selftitled “biggest little theater in the Midwest.” There are no flashing lights or giant banners, but what Off The Wall lacks in glitz and glam, it makes up for in heart and dedication. In the lobby, guests can review Off The Wall’s impressive repertoire of posters from past productions, and starting Oct. 27, “Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?” will be a welcome addition to that list. The stage adaptation of “Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?” opens just in time for the Halloween season. Off The Wall’s version is based on the 1962 thriller starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. As the second show of the 2011-2012 season, “Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?” serves as a testament to the struggles and accomplishments of the people behind Off The Wall. “Off The Wall is actually kind of an accident,” said Dale Gutzman, artistic director and founder of the theatre. Before starting Off The Wall, Gutzman was close to retiring because of his unfortunate luck with theater at the time. With little money and little motivation to continue in the theater world, a friend suggested starting a small venue where money wouldn’t be an issue. The idea of a venue that

focused on the love of theater and talent, rather than making a profit, soon developed into Off The Wall. In the beginning, none of the actors or staff members were paid, and a strict budget of $100 covered entire productions. Eventually, Off The Wall drew in loyal subscribers and actors from major Milwaukee theater companies who donated their time and talent for the sake of art. Through these hardships, Off The Wall has developed a sense of family that can’t be said for all companies. However, over a decade later, Gutzman says Off The Wall still barely breaks even because all the profit from their shows goes straight towards future productions. Nevertheless, the pros outweigh the cons in a big way for Gutzman and other members of Off The Wall. “It’s been a real labor of love and a great thing to do rather than retire,” said Gutzman. That labor of love is what has kept Off The Wall going for the past 12 years, and what will continue to keep it alive. Their upcoming production of “Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?” reminds audiences of that very fact. The original film follows the story of aging actresses “Baby” Jane Hudson (Bette Davis) and Blanche Hudson (Joan Crawford). Jane, a once successful child star, cares for her sister Blanche, the finer actress of the two. Blanche’s career outshines Jane’s as they grew older, and causes a great amount of tension between them. In their mansion, Blanche is confined to a wheelchair, the result of

her sister running her over with her car while driving drunk. As their relationship grows apart and Jane’s control over Blanche worsens, their mutual hate for each other comes to a head, and they slowly lose their minds. The biggest challenge for Gutzman was bringing something new to the twisted tale of sibling rivalry people have come to know and love. Audiences needed a fresh take on the cult classic. Actors Jeremy Welter and Mark Hagen bring the extra oomph Gutzman sought out to capture. Welter and Hagen play the characters of both Baby Jane and Blanche, alternating roles at each show. This unique dynamic guarantees that every performance will be different from the last. Two male leads playing two older women gives the production Off The Wall’s signature quirky flare. “Whatever line other companies won’t cross we usually will,” said Welter. “We just don’t have that off button.” Welter has worked with Off The Wall for six years and even wrote a dark, modern stage adaptation of “Alice In Wonderland”

last season. Hagen has been with Off The Wall for 11 years. To him, “Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?” is the perfect balance audiences are looking for. “I like that we can incorporate some humor,” he said. “We made it a well-rounded show and really just want people walking out feeling that it was a great evening.” Both Welter and Hagen have played female roles before, but “Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?” is different. Even though they are men dressed up as woman, according to Gutzman, audiences could easily believe that Joan Crawford and Bette Davis are on stage. The actors are able to play their characters in a serious tone but also have the ability to make the audience giggle for all the right reasons. “I knew right away that that’s how I wanted to do it,” Gutzman said. “In order for it to work, it had to have something more or different than the movie. Otherwise we’ll just be doing the movie, and what’s the point of that?” Joan Crawford and Bette Davis were often criticized for being masculine women, so Gutzman finds humor in having two men play them on stage. After presenting heavier productions like the anti-war play “Mother Courage” and 19th century classic “The Idiot,” Gutzman decided “Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?” would provide his audience with the comic relief they needed. “The show is wildly fun,” he said. “There’s not a deep, serious message. Just deep fun played for comedy.” “Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?” opens at Off The Wall Theatre, 127 E. Wells St., on Oct. 27. It runs through Nov. 6, excluding Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. Curtain Times are 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 4:30 p.m. on Sundays and 7:30 p.m. and midnight on Saturdays. Tickets are $23.50 for general seating and are available online at offthewalltheatre.com or by phone at 414-327-3552. Marquette students receive a discount for the Nov. 2 performance at $18 a ticket.

Lee E. Ernst captures the essence of ‘Lombardi’

Off the field, players Paul Hornung, Jim Taylor and Dave Robinson get fired up about thier coach, Lombardi.

Milwaukee Rep brings Wisconsin legend to life By Jennie Jorgensen jennifer.jorgensen@marquette.edu

Last year, the Green Bay Packers brought the Lombardi Trophy home to Lambeau Field. This fall, the Milwaukee Repertory Theater brings the legendary coach Vince Lombardi home to Wisconsin in “Lombardi.” Although the National Football League’s Super Bowl trophy is named for him, very few know the story of Lombardi the man — his inspirations, passions, ability to drive people to achieve and his quick, booming temper. This is the story “Lombardi” tells. The Rep’s post-Broadway Wisconsin premiere, recently extended through Nov. 20, is based on the book “When Pride Still Mattered: A Life Of Vince Lombardi” by David Maraniss. The play is written by Academy Awardwinner and Wisconsin native Eric Simonson. In “Lombardi,” Look Magazine reporter Michael McCormick, played by the Rep’s Resident Acting Company member Gerard Neugent, travels to Green Bay to write an article about the legendary Packers coach. Hoping for some good press coverage, Vince and Marie Lombardi invite Michael

to stay with them for the week, observe practices and talk to members of the team. Throughout his stay, Michael talks to and observes Marie along with three of Lombardi’s legendary players: Paul Hornung, Jim Taylor and Dave Robinson. He learns about Lombardi’s years as a banker, his religious beliefs and family life, his ascension to the Packers head coachi n g j o b , his relations h i p w i t h h i s players, his signature “power sweep”

play and, of course, his boisterously powerful voice. Angela Iannone, who plays Marie Lombardi, effortlessly manages to recreate the loud-mouthed, tough-loving, Brooklyn-accented wife of a football-obsessed coach. Clearly an audience favorite, Iannone has a wit about her and a sparkle in her eye that exposes exactly who Marie must have been: a woman everyone loved. Marie, portrayed as the refreshing relief from Lombardi’s hot temper, guides Michael on his quest for a wellwritten and carefully researched article. Acting as somewhat of a narrative character, Neugent pushes the play’s action forward, which means the story jumps back and forth in time with flashbacks of the Lombardis’ former years. Two large projector screens help with this process, filling the background of the

MU student living his rock ‘n’ roll dreams

Chris Morales (left) and Tom Shears are striving for a sound that stands out from the crowd with The Living Statues.

Duo fuses simple jam band sound with indie, pop By Liz McGovern elizabeth.mcgovern@marquette.edu

While band names can seem random, choosing a name is the first step that sets artists apart from each other. What musicians

choose to call themselves creates their identity. For Chris Morales, a senior in the College of Arts & Sciences, establishing a name for his band was the final step in bringing his musical vision to life. Morales’ band, The Living Statues, is a duo he created with his high school friend, Tom Shears, a senior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The two played together in a band in high school but created

the duo in 2008. Last summer, the two called themselves simply by their first names — Tom and Chris — but they were looking to develop something further. “We always liked statues. They’re these monuments that stand as a testament to a city or a group of people,” Morales said. “How cool would it be for them to come to life?” Morales said the name came naturally, but the band is still developing its sound. He describes

The Living Statues as rock ‘n’ roll first and foremost, with an indie rock and pop twist. Ultimately, the duo hopes to create a sound which stands out in the music scene. “Imagine the White Stripes spilled their drinks on the Strokes and then got into a scuffle with Kings of Leon. That sounds like us,” Morales said. The duo released their EP “Bad News,” on their website, longlivethestatues.com, on Oct. 8. The EP’s single, “Red Shoes,” has modern lyrics but an older, upbeat electric sound. Reminiscent of Jet’s “Are You Gonna Be My Girl?” the song’s mood is hopeful and fun. The Living Statues is still perfecting its style. Morales said certain songs are geared more towards particular avenues. “While one song may sound like the Strokes, another song may be more like the Killers meets Bruce Springsteen,” Morales said. “We’re setting the field and finding our niche.” While Shears dons a guitar and sings lead vocals, Morales plays the drums, guitar and also provides backup vocals. Their songs can be based off of Morales’ or Shears’ individual thoughts or ideas, but they always work together to co-write each piece. “Though we are a duo, we make a lot of noise for two guys,” Morales said. On Saturday, Dec. 3, The Living Statues will open for the band Walk the Moon at Bay View’s Club Garibaldi, 2501 S. Superior St. Walk the Moon has toured with Weezer and Panic! At The

Disco. “It’ll give us exposure to a different crowd, by meeting bands and talking to them,” Morales said. The venue is not just a local music scene but also showcases nationally recognized bands like Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros. Morales emphasized the importance of cultivating a music scene on Marquette’s campus, where original “garage-bands” are absent. “We live in such a diverse city. Marquette does a good job in promoting artistic diversity. We have that connection to MIAD (Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design), and people utilize that avenue, but it still needs to develop,” Morales said. “It’s important as a student body to generate artistic people.” While Morales appreciates the arts, he will graduate spring semester with a science degree. He may be a biology major who works as a lab assistant, but that does not mean he’s not serious about pursuing music. “People have asked me, ‘What are you going to do with that biology degree?’ I’m not sure, and I think that’s okay,” Morales said. Morales is considering living with Shears post-graduation, possibly teaching or getting a job in a medical laboratory and taking the band from there. “We will get respective jobs, pursue music on the weekends and see where it takes us,” Morales said. “You don’t put all this work into a band unless you want to take it seriously.”

Don’t let your Halloween plans stress you out

Sarah Elms Halloween was the best holiday when we were kids. We got to dress up in fun costumes, scare the crap out of our younger siblings and neighbors and stay up past our bedtimes counting every single piece of candy obtained during the trick-or-treating ritual. Now that we’re in college and legal adults, Halloween has unfortunately lost its allure. Sure, college students still like eating candy and getting spooked, and who doesn’t love a good costume party? But when you really boil it down, Halloween is stressful. Let me lay it out for you. If you’re under 21, you’re likely trying to organize a party since you legally can’t hit the bar scene. But on this campus, if you’re not 21 yet you probably still live in a dorm and soon realize that hosting a rager in

McCormick this weekend might not be the best idea. With that option out the window, your next best choice is to figure out if there are any parties happening on campus that you and your friends could crash, all while scrambling to put together a costume that is both clever and slutty — but not too slutty, of course. Sound exhilarating? Maybe you should just stay in, pop in a few scary movies and chow down on your favorite candy instead. If you’re 21 or older, you’re also rushing to figure out a clever and not-too-slutty costume. And who has time for that between all the papers and exams that inevitably pop up after fall break? I mean, really, didn’t we just have midterms? Once you decide on an outfit, the focus shifts to how exactly you are going to celebrate. Option one: Pay an expensive cover charge to get into some bar with a costume contest and Halloween trivia and order overpriced, orange-tinted drinks while avoiding the creeper dressed as a serial killer (it is a costume, right?).

Old tricks are no treat in ‘Paranormal Activity 3’

‘Paranormal Activity 3’ hit theaters just in time for the Halloween season.

Horror film series too predictable third time around By Matt Mueller matthew.mueller@marquette.edu

It seemed so innocent in the beginning. When the first “Paranormal Activity” came out all those years ago in 2009, it was a

breath of fresh air to the horror genre. No longer did intricate death traps and gore rule the Halloween film season. Instead, horror became about bluetinged handheld footage, nameless casts, subtle details and production budgets that could barely cover the catering costs on most film sets. Two years and over $200 million later, “Paranormal Activity 3” hits theaters. Unfortunately, with only three films under its belt, the once-original series has

At the Rev. Scott Pilarz’s first student forum, many issues were rightfully brought up as areas that need improvement. We believe one point, in particular, is an essential but underaddressed campus issue: the lack of diversity. Pilarz did acknowledge the diversity already present on campus as well as our continuous room for improved diversity. Because of the recognized lack of diversity in ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation, Marquette Student Government has initiated a Diversity Initiative roundtable series to better consider all segments of the student community — even those who are low percentages of the campus population — when making decisions that affect students. Tuesday marked the first of three discussions with the underrepresented student groups on campus. MUSG’s discussions focus specifically on issues surrounding race, sexual orientation and religion but are open to considering issues considering any type of diversity on campus. We think that such efforts are appropriate, especially considering the undeniable homogeneity of campus. Encouraging various underrepresented minorities on campus to vocalize their concerns is always beneficial. The concerns specifically with racial, sexual orientation and religious diversity are accurately founded according to university statistics, which tell a compelling story. According to the Office of Information and Research’s annual Common Data Set report, 6,283 out of 8,387 total undergraduates identify themselves as “white, nonHispanic,” whereas 604 identify as “Hispanic,” 400 as “Black or African American, non-Hispanic,” 24 as “American Indian or Alaska Native, non-Hispanic,” 313 as “Asian, non-Hispanic, 149 as “two or more races, non-hispanic” and 360 identify as “race and/or ethnicity unknown.” Religious affiliation is not tracked in the CDS but is recorded in the 2011 Senior Survey, completed by 45 percent of graduates. According to the survey, 65 percent identified as “Catholic,” 16 percent as “other Christian religion,” 3 percent as “other nonChristian religion” and 13 percent “I do not have a religious affiliation” with 4 percent choosing not to indicate an affiliation. Likewise, in OIR’s Senior Survey 94 percent identified themselves as “heterosexual,” 1 percent as “bisexual” and

1 percent as “gay/lesbian” with 4 percent choosing not to disclose any sexual orientation. According to the most recent 2010 National Survey of Student Engagement, Marquette freshmen and seniors are generally concerned about handling such diversity — or lack thereof — on campus but recognize that we are making an effort, although there remains room for improvement. For instance, when rating on a scale of 1 (never) to 4 (very often), freshmen averaged 2.92 and seniors averaged 2.84 when asked if their academic experiences “included diverse perspectives ... in class discussions or writing assignments.” In the same survey, rating institutional environment on a scale of 1 (very little) to 4 (very much), and environment “encouraging contact among students from different economic, social and racial or ethnic backgrounds” was rated 2.86 by freshmen and 2.63 by seniors. All these statistics indicate a clear need to incorporate more discussions of diversity into our academic and campus environment. The MUSG roundtables are a good start to changing this perspective. However, three discussions will not automatically solve the lack of diversity on campus — and MUSG recognizes this. The short-term sessions will hopefully lead to a complete report that the university can consider in solving more long-term issues of creating a more diverse campus as well as listening, understanding and acting upon the input of currently underrepresented groups. Moreover, the reports that will hopefully result should be taken seriously by the administration. It should recognize such efforts and student advocacy on campus. Clearly, students are concerned about the lack of diversity and are willing to take small steps to come up with more engagement among majority and minority groups. The administration should be just as invested in the process. We think that approaching such discussions as a starting point for future, largescale and long-term initiatives is prudent and realistic. We should not stop our advocacy with several roundtable discussions. We students should recognize the issue of diversity on campus is something that we must consider and be active in tackling, whether at a personal level or a more involved university level.

Annie Richmond borrowed my bike almost two months ago, and I haven’t seen it since. Which is a shame, because since school started, the weather has been phenomenal — perfect bike riding weather. The air is crisp, the sky is blue and the leaves are radiantly colored. Luckily, I have been too busy to notice my bike’s absence as of late. Two teams I liked were competing to go to the World Series, my room can’t seem to stay clean and, oh yeah, those pesky things called midterms, which have continued even after grades were technically due. Since the weather was still nice on Monday, I decided to ease some tension and get some fresh air. Only 12 hours removed from fall break, and I needed another one. Without a bike, my only refuge was a quick walk through the upperclassmen neighborhood. As I strolled down 15th Street, I breathed in the fresh air. The Milwaukee stench was mild, and the smell of changing seasons was unsullied by the city. The sky was bright enough for sunglasses despite being overcast and the trees popped against the gray background. For minutes at a time, I worried not a bit about the papers and test due this week. The harsh deadlines of applications seemed fainter, and the five meetings I needed to attend later in the evening completely escaped my mind. Fall was full, but the walk was relaxing my tension. Then my phone beeped reminding me I actually do have responsibilities. Resigned, I checked my messages, looking down for the first time since I dropped my backpack off at home. That’s when I saw it. Right in front of a row of apartments: Litter everywhere. Not just an

abandoned beer can or two, but sprinklings of red Solo cups, Jimmy John’s wrappers and junk lining the sidewalk. It was gross. The luster of autumn beauty wore off as I began to notice the inordinate amount of garbage strewn along Kilbourn. I had assumed the crunch under my feet to be dried leaves, not trash. The gray sky mirrored the muddle underfoot. And I began to realize that we are totally trashing our neighborhood. On my way back to Marquette-owned property, I noticed that there was far less litter. I’m not insinuating underclassmen are more environmentally conscious — I have a feeling most of the abandoned alcohol containers outside of houses and apartments were theirs. But our grounds crew obviously does an awesome job of picking up after us. Because, apparently, we are slobs. Where the campus-owned property lines are marked is the ever-important distinction between under- and upperclassmen. My latest revelation is that it also divides squalor from a cleanliness we take for granted. It is one thing to be living in a pit, but it is quite another when the garbage spills out of the house and onto the streets — especially since beyond Wells, these streets do not have garbage cans. The most horrifying part is that had I been on a bike, I would have never noticed the filth! I would have kept ignorantly enjoying the beauty at eye-level and higher, even though the sidewalks resembled a dump. Maybe we forget to notice the litter in our urban campus. But amid the myriad of red, orange and yellow leaves littering the ground, we have a real litter problem on our hands. We need to start taking some responsibility here — disposing of garbage is really not that difficult. Yes, it would be helpful if we had trash cans on every corner. But we can keep our neighborhood clean easily enough. Take pride in where we live and resist the urge to mess it up. And, Annie, any time you want to return my bike, you know where to find me. kelly.white@marquette.edu

Flat-footed start leads to 3-0 setback

Win over Pittsburgh on Saturday needed for division crown By Matt Trebby Special to the Tribune

If the No. 5/2 Connecticut Huskies wanted an opportunity to win the Big East’s Blue Division, they had to beat the Marquette Golden Eagles (8-7-2, 6-2-0 Big East) at Joseph Morrone Stadium on Wednesday night in Storrs, Conn. They succeeded. Sophomore forward Mamadou Diouf led the way to a 3-0 victory with two goals and an assist. In a surprising move, Big East Preseason Co-Offensive Player of the Year Tony Cascio started on the bench for Connecticut. Freshman Allando Matheson started in his place, and gave the Huskies the lead with a goal in the ninth minute. Diouf played a low cross in from the right wing that Matheson put into the back of the net. The Huskies (14-1-2, 5-12) doubled their lead in the 20th minute when Diouf headed home junior midfielder Stephane Diop’s cross from the left wing for his ninth goal of the season. Marquette coach Louis Bennett knew his team would have to come out well against Connecticut, which extended its undefeated streak to 14-0-0 when it scores first. “We knew the first 25 minutes would be really important in this game,” Bennett said. “I don’t think we were quite up to speed. We gave the ball away quite a bit, and we were just a day late and a dollar short.” Sophomore defender Eric

Pothast said the team didn’t start the game the way it wanted to. “We always want to come out with a good foot forward and take the game to the other team,” Pothast said. “Conceding two soft goals at the beginning of the game put us on the back foot early.” In the 55th minute, the Senegalese duo combined for Connecticut’s third goal when Diop played Diouf through on goal from the left wing. Diouf finished under Check’s legs from 12 yards out, and sealed the result for the hosts. Connecticut’s attacking players didn’t stay in the same place for very long, rotating all around the field throughout. Pothast said their movement put Marquette’s defense in tough positions. “One second they’d be in the middle, the next second they’d be out wide,” Pothast said. “You want to stay tight to your other central defender, but at the same time account for the forward out wide. It was a difficult game.” Marquette’s two best chances came through senior midfielder Amilcar Herrera. In the first half, Herrera was on a breakaway with a defender on his shoulder, and shot over the goal from 15 yards out, with freshman goalkeeper Andre Blake charging out at him. In the second, Herrera got on the end of a cross from the right and had his shot go off senior defender Nickardo Blake’s face then off the post. The loss marked the third time on the season that Marquette has been shut out. The Golden Eagles had the highest goals per game average amongst Blue Division teams but played a Connecticut team that has only conceded five goals on the season. A draw against Connecticut would have clinched at least

a share of the division crown for the Golden Eagles. With the loss, Marquette will have to defeat the Pittsburgh Panthers Saturday night at Valley Fields if it wants to win the Blue Division. “If we lose or draw at home to Pittsburgh, we don’t deserve to win the league,” senior midfielder Calum Mallace said.

Men’s basketball brief

On Wednesday evening, the Marquette men’s basketball team received its fourth commitment of the 2012 recruiting class: 6-foot-10 Aaron Durley. Durley, a native of Houston, Texas, tweeted out his commitment at about 8:15 p.m. Central Time: “Well guys.... I just committed to Marquette University tonite!!! #ItsOfficial.” Durley plays at George Bush High School in Fort Bend, Texas, the same school that redshirt junior

center Chris Otule attended. “I just thought that Marquette was the best fit for me,” Durley told Scout.com. “They do a great job of developing big men and they have a very good program up there.” Texashoop.com wrote, “His overall agility and touch will need to improve as he prepares for ball at the next level.” The other three members of the 2012 recruiting class are forward Jamal Ferguson, guard T.J. Taylor and forward Steve Taylor.

And when did every other place turn into the pretty girl?

Two seniors have each picked up 1,000 career kills By Mark Strotman mark.strotman@marquette.edu

Senior outside hitters Ashley Beyer and Ciara Jones took two different paths to get to Marquette, use two different styles of play in their attack and lead the Golden Eagles in different ways on the court. But for Marquette’s premiere attackers, there is one striking similarity both can relish: the milestone of 1,000 kills. October saw Beyer and Jones become the 10th and 11th players in the program’s history to accomplish the feat, but both took different paths to reach the milestone. A foot injury caused Jones to miss 14 games her freshman year, limiting her to just 73 kills, and Beyer missed out on a full year before transferring from Kishwaukee Junior College in Illinois. Both admitted milestones and career goals never

entered their mind early in the careers, but 1,000 kills seemed to be a stretch after 2008. As the Golden Eagles continued to improve, so did Beyer and Jones. In their sophomore years, Jones continued her progression with 236 kills while Beyer, playing for the first time in a Marquette uniform, racked up 381 kills. 2010 was a major turning point for both players in their quest for 1,000 kills, with Jones improving her hit percentage by 6 percent and racking up 379 kills. Beyer was just as good, leading the Golden Eagles with 414 kills and being named to the All-Big East first team. “I really just focused on the little things,” Jones said. “My hitting wasn’t going to go anywhere, so I needed to learn how to do all these other things, and I think I became really consistent after my sophomore year, just a year of learning. And junior year was time to go.” Beyer admitted she was much more comfortable in Marquette’s offense See Match, page 20

Golf is just the beginning

Bailey stresses six core values to golfers on and off course By Trey Killian robert.killian@marquette.edu

Since starting his tenure as Marquette’s golf coach last fall, Steve Bailey has tried to build a team culture extending far beyond the 18th hole. “The biggest thing we are trying to develop here is building character as not only golfers but young men,” Bailey said. “I want them to know that there’s so much more to life than the golf bubble they’re in.” Bailey is a firm believer in what he calls the six core values: perspective, character, preparation, commitment, perseverance and service. According to Bailey, these values must be exercised to their fullest extent every day in order for them to impact each player’s life on and off the course.

Bailey stresses keeping things in perspective so that no matter how difficult things get on the golf course, his players remember the fortunate position they’re in. “To play college golf is a privilege and we always have our guys remind themselves of that,” Bailey said. “They have to always remember that they are representing Marquette University, and it’s an honor to play for this team. There’s a lot more to it than just birdies and bogeys.” The service Bailey requires of his players heavily reflects the team’s culture. Rather than choosing a set-in-stone organization to work with each year, he keeps his players involved by allowing them to make their own choices. “Each player has a month of the year that they are responsible for a volunteer activity,” Bailey said. “We want the guys to go out and take ownership of whatever is in their heart and have the rest of the team show up to support it.” Senior Matt Haase based the first of these service outings in

2011 on his love for the outdoors by having the team pull weeds and remove a drainage pipe at the Hawthorn Glen Outdoor Education Center. Haase said Bailey’s implementation of these core values through projects has helped set Bailey apart from other golf coaches that he had played under. “He’s much more organized and in tune with his players’ needs and their lives,” Haase said. “He really cares about us as people and not just our golf games.” Assistant coach David Merkow, who played for Bailey at Northwestern, has noticed the consistencies between the culture he created there and the one he is still building at Marquette. “We are absolutely on the same page, and that’s what lets us have such a great working relationship,” Merkow said. “So much of what we’re trying to get our players to do is be their own coaches, both specifically with their golf game, much like Steve (Bailey) taught me to do and also be good examples for them to base their lives on.” Though it is far from easy for a sport like golf to gain significant face time on a basketball-crazy campus, Bailey believes that through the same perseverance he has preached from the start will help the program gain a more prominent place on campus. “We’re not filling 19,000 seats for our golf tournaments, and we don’t play an event on campus or host a local event so it’s tough to become as known,” Bailey said. “If we continue to put in the hard work, though, then our guys will get the recognition they deserve.”

What red-blooded male — and, increasingly, female — doesn’t love playing fantasy sports? Not only does it give participants an opportunity to run their own dream team, it gives them a reason to watch even the crappiest, most meaningless game. If you are one of those advanced players who likes to up the ante by putting some greenbacks on the games, it adds a very real dimension to fantasy. And if you are a pig farmer from Idaho, fantasy might just be your ticket to early retirement. At least it will be for Lindy Hinkelman, the 59-year-old pig farmer who has collected over $300,000 in earnings from playing fantasy baseball the past three years. Hinkelman takes part in the

National Fantasy Baseball Championship every year, paying the $1,400 entry fee to enter, and has won the $100,000 grand prize twice, becoming the contests’ sole participant to do so. Making this story even stranger, he said he doesn’t have a smartphone, uses the Internet sparingly and only uses paper when he goes to the live draft in Las Vegas. “Raising pigs and this baseball thing really go together,” he told the New York Times. I bet a certain team from Chicago wishes it wouldn’t have hired Theo Epstein to be its president now. After all, who better to reverse a goat curse than a pig farmer? andrei.greska@marquette.edu

MU draws desperate team Big East provides daunting task

matches, dating back to a 4-1 loss at Marquette on Sept. 30, 2005. This is not the same team that won the national championship last year, but one that will provide a stern test if Marquette is to advance to its fourth consecutive Big East Championship tournament semifinal. Marquette has won nine matches in a row after a 3-1 setback at West Virginia (14-4-0, 10-1-0 Big East) on Sept. 18 and has not lost at Valley Fields in 19 straight games. The Golden Eagles beat Notre Dame 3-2 in overtime on Sept. 25, getting a game-winning goal from sophomore midfielder Taylor Madigan just 18 seconds into the extra frame. It was Marquette’s second win in eight tries against Notre Dame. For Marquette to win again, the team will have to keep the same mindset it has had all year. “We go in and we’re ready to win every game, it doesn’t matter who we play,” junior forward Lisa Philbin said. “We’ve come to a point in our season where it’s like ‘who’s next, we’re going to take them.’” It appears that Notre Dame has finally found its identity in goal, having tried to replace All-American Nikki Weiss with a combination of junior Maddie Fox and freshmen Jennifer Jasper and Sarah Voigt early in the season. Fox has been the hot hand as of late. She’s allowed just four goals in the past seven games and leads the conference in save percentage (.817) and is second in goals allowed per game (0.79) in the 14 matches she has appeared in. Notre Dame has allowed 21 Photo courtesy of Marquette Athletics goals in 18 games, compared to the 13 it allowed in 25 games last year. Junior forward Lisa Philbin thinks the team has the perfect mindset.

Nelson believes key is for runners to ‘run within’ themselves By A. W. Herndon astead.herndon@marquette.edu

The Marquette cross-country teams return to the E.P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park in Louisville, Ky., for the Big East Championships Saturday, looking to use an earlier race at the same course to their competitive advantage. On Oct. 1, both the men’s and women’s cross-country teams competed in the Greater Louisville Classic at the same park. They believe the experience will yield dividends come Saturday. “I think seeing the course has helped us a lot,” sophomore Hannah Frett said. “We know where the start and finish lines are, and although it was only a 5k last time and it’s 6k this time, we still know the course and it will help us.” The conference championship represents the first in a successive string of important races for the Golden Eagles, followed by the NCAA Great Lakes Regional and the NCAA National Championships. Since cross-country is scored by adding the finishing totals of each school’s top-five runners, the lower the team’s total the better. Junior Patrick Maag expects the nine men’s runners selected to answer the call of their coach. “Earlier in the week, coach (Mike Nelson) sent out an email with a video of our lowest point total at a conference race,” Maag said. “I think that we can do even better than that this year. There are good teams in the Big East, but we’re shooting for our lowest point total ever.” Nelson, however, believes it is important for his runners to “run within” themselves. “Going out way too hard and leaving yourself vulnerable is not a good plan,” he said. “It would be pretty silly, and it’s

one thing we’re working on. We just want to focus on running our own race, internally.” Nelson said the experience of seniors Blake Johnson and Peter Bolgert allows the men to be more successful pacing themselves during the race. The women’s team is amid a struggle over leadership, but Nelson believes the inter-competition allows the team to push itself harder in important races. “Honestly, I have no idea who will lead the women’s team,” Nelson said. “We have several athletes who have come up in later races, and athletes who have been running well all year. Good inter-team competition helps at the meets though. There’s a very good chance that someone new could lead us this weekend.” Yet Nelson concluded that he is confident in his female seniors, coming off their best race last weekend, to lead the women successfully. “We know we have the powerhouse cross-country teams in the Big East. But we believe that we can be in the top half of the conference,” Frett said. Last year the women finished 10th while the men placed eighth at Syracuse’s Jamesville Beach Park. But Maag believes this year can be different. “I’m excited for this weekend because I have the opportunity to knock off my (personal record),” he said. “And if we maximize our potential in this race and perform better and we can be around the top.” If Maag needed more motivation, he’s assured to hear at least one encouraging voice from an opposing school: his sister. Annamarie Maag, a freshman at Georgetown, will compete Saturday. Patrick – who has raced against his older brother Peter, a senior at Princeton – is excited to see his younger sister. “There will be little bit of trash talk, but it’ll be mostly friendly,” he said with a laugh. “I wish the best for her. And I hope she does the same for me.”

last season, which yielded more kills and more wins. “I felt a lot more comfortable with the team,” Beyer said. “And in your second year, you get to know everyone a lot better. Last year, everything was put together really well, and we were playing really well.” Each has been instrumental in the success of the other. Beyer has helped the powerful-hitting Jones with her shot placement, with Jones helping Beyer stay focused and regaining energy on the

court after tough stretches. “They each help each other in different ways,” coach Bond Shymansky said. “They’re not afraid to keep each other in check, and accountability is really big part of being successful. They’re never afraid to say what needs to be said to each other.” While both push each other in practice and during games, neither said there was any sort of competitive attitude against the other. Rather, the two have used their unique skill sets to

complement each other at different times in matches, ultimately leading to more kills for both. Different styles of play have made Jones and Beyer unique outside hitters, but they now share a milestone and a mentality that has led Marquette to an 8-0 conference record and a first place spot in the Big East. “They’d trade every kill for a win,” Shymansky said, “and they know that every kill from here on out is incredibly valuable to our program.”

Eagles will face a desperate team. Junior defender Megan Jaskowiak said the team isn’t worried about Notre Dame’s desperation. The focus is on the chance to beat Notre Dame again.

“It’s just Notre Dame, we just want to play and beat them and it’s a good opportunity to beat them twice in the same season, which has never happened before,” Jaskowiak said.
