Bo Bice leads Blood, Sweat & Tears into Huntington By ZACH HAUGHT

THE PARTHENON Bo Bice will perform lead vocals for Blood, Sweat & Tears’ performance Tuesday at the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center. The performance will incorporate the music of Blood, Sweat & Tears as well as holiday music accompanied by a 40-piece orchestra. Blood, Sweat & Tears gained fame in the late ‘60s with hits such as “Spinning Top”

and “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy.” The group earned 10 Grammy nominations and won three Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year, beating artists such as The Beatles, Johnny Cash and Crosby, Stills & Nash. Bice gained first gained the attention of Bobby Colomby, former Blood, Sweat & Tears drummer and current owner, with his performance of “Spinning Top” on American Idol’s fourth season.

“This past couple of months, I’ve done I guess five shows with the band Blood, Sweat & Tears and this all really did come about from them I guess seeing me on Idol and I performed their song ‘Spinning Wheel,’” Bice said. “So that was I guess a good enough reason for them to reach out to me and I was honored to get the call, but I’d be lying to you if I said that it hasn’t been a lot of hard work.” Bice said the diverse rock, pop and jazz sounds the band

incorporatesintoitsmusicmakes for enjoyable performances. “I love the fact that you can go from ‘You’ve Made Me So Very Happy,’ a very poppy-sounding, romantic song and turn around and you’re playing something like ‘Almost Sorry’ or ‘Spinning Wheel’ or more and more songs like that that are very rockdriven,” Bice said. “There’s not a lot of bands out there that have the ability to do that in their catalogue.” While he said he loves that

diversity, Bice said preparing for it has been a challenge. “It’s definitely a challenge, so not only am I honored to be a part of I guess the band and a band that’s helped shape my career and my love of music, but also it’s nice to have those creative juices flowing again to the point that it’s something new and fresh and not just kind of waking up and seeing yourself in the mirror every day,” Bice said.

1')#$"$)($ Designers earn presidential awards championship choice sparks confusion By COLTON JEFFRIES

THE PARTHENON The campus of Marshall University was still feeling the aftermath of the Herd’s trouncing of East Carolina, solidifying its spot in the Conference USA Championship football game for the first time since joining the conference in 2005, as they awaited the announcement of who would host the championship football game. Sunday morning, both the Coaches and Harris Polls had Marshall at just under the top 25, while Rice was nowhere to be found. Come 8:30 p.m., most Marshall fans were convinced that Marshall would host the championship game. Some football players from Marshall even tweeted confirming that Marshall was host. Those dreams were quickly dashed when the official announcement came from C-USA around 9 p.m., that due to placing higher in the BCS rankings, Rice would host Marshall in the championship game. This announcement caused a bit of outrage for Marshall fans everywhere. The C-USA Facebook and Twitter pages were flooded with negative comments from Marshall fans, and some fans also put comments on Rice related pages as well. Theories arose as to why Marshall was not the host. The most prevalent theory was that with Rice being in Houston, and the C-USA offices being in Texas as well, that meant that Rice got the hosting position due to samestate bias. Senior Tyler Rice said he felt that Marshall was almost certain to host the game. “It’s just so disappointing, because almost all of the polls had us ahead of Rice, but the deciding factor was from a bunch of computers,” Rice said.

Students recognized for creativity in holiday art By ANDREA STEELE

THE PARTHENON President Stephen J. Kopp kicked off the holiday season by recognizing the eight Marshall University Art and Design students for their winning entries of the President’s 2013 Holiday Competition. Inside of Kopp’s office Monday, the students gathered to be acknowledged for their winning design entrances. Kopp said there were three different divisions Arts and Media students could enter: plate design, where an engraved or sketched plate with the winning design going to the top 80 Marshall

donors, a digital holiday card and a traditional holiday card that will be sent out around the office. The winners of the President’s 2013 Holiday Competition were Bradley Leonard, Tyler Vance, Kyle Mullins, John Fowler, Shane Craig, Jill Smallwood, David Pelts and John Dingess. “The creativity of our students is phenomenal,” Kopp said. Kopp said the process is to take the entries to the jury where feedback is provided among them until they have narrowed the submissions down. “We talk about the message [behind it],” Kopp said.

Mary Grassell, program director for the art department, coordinated the event. Grassell said she was a consultant for the jury when the deciding process went on, but she stepped back and let President and his wife do the choosing. “The first year we did this was in 2009,” Grassell said. “This is a good opportunity for students to not only win a nice price, but to get recognition for their work.” Grassell said it’s also a learning experience because there are always adjustments being made so the work can be produced. John Fowler, senior graphic design major and first-place

holiday printed card winner, said it didn’t take long to design his idea but coming up with the idea was the hardest part. “Even after I designed it, it still took a good 15 hours to get the final product,” Fowler said. Jillian Smallwood, senior print making major and third place winner in both the holiday printed card and the 2013 commemorative plate categories, was in the minority when she entered the competition. “There’s a tendency for mostly graphic design majors to enter [the competition],” Smallwood said. “As a print making major I entered in hopes of getting a more

diverse group of art majors to enter as well.” Smallwood was also the only female to place. “I don’t think it has to do with girls being inferior,” Smallwood said. “Hopefully more girls will enter next year.” According to Grassell there were close to 25 students who entered the competition this year. “I think more people should participate,” Grassell said. Grassell hopes to see a larger turn out in entries for next year’s competition. Andrea Steele can be contacted at steele98@

Sophomore Johnson impresses on Senior Day BY KARLYN TIMKO The Marshall University football team secured a spot in the Conference USA Championship game for the dirst time in 10 years after Friday’s game. The 59-28 win over East Carolina University clinched the East Division title and ended the Herd’s regular season on a positive note. Senior Day celebrations didn’t stop sophomore tight end Devon Johnson from shining. The Richlands, Va., native was responsible for 18 points on the scoreboard with three touchdowns and 64 total offensive yards. Johnson scored two 2-yard rushes in the dirst half and caught a 52-yard pass he was able to run in for a touchdown in the third quarter. Although a modest Johnson takes little credit for his team’s victory, he said being a part of such a golden opportunity is indescribable. “I have an amazing team who works hard and has my back at all times,” Johnson said. “Being in this moment with all of them is what our goal has been all along. That’s what I play for. There’s nothing that can feel better than this.” All season long, Marshall and ECU had been neck as neck for the number one spot in the East, with memories of last season’s double-overtime battle on the forefront. Johnson said being able to clinch revenge over the Pirates is gratifying in many ways. “Beating ECU for the division title is dedinitely a good feeling,” Johnson said. “But it doesn’t matter if it’s ECU, Rice,

Tulane, Tulsa, whoever. We don’t care what name is on their jersey. The only one we care about is the name on ours. We’re not here to beat ECU or get revenge. We’re here to win championships.” Johnson and his team will face Rice University, the winner of the West Division, in the C-USA Championship game Saturday. The last time the Herd played for a championship title was back in 2002 when Bob Pruett and his team became the Mid-American Conference champions. Johnson said there are many things he credits for his team’s success this season. “First of all the coaches have done a great job with us,” Johnson said. “They’re always pushing us and believing in us and have gotten us this far. The only other thing I can say is hard work pays off.” Johnson isn’t the only one with thoughts along these lines. Head coach Doc Holliday seems to be on the same page. “Devon Johnson is a really good football player,” Holliday said. “I’ve been saying that all along. He’s a tremendous young talent and the coaches have done a great job building him up. He’s getting more condidence and it seems that whenever we can get him the ball, he can run.” Teammate Rakeen Cato, who was 17-of-28 with two touchdowns and one interception, also had only good things to say about Johnson. “I’m so eager to hand the ball off to him and watch him run,” Cato said. “He surprises people, but as far as our

He has great hands and is probably one of the top players on our offense.” Friday’s game marked the Herd’s difth straight 500-yard offensive game, a stat that Johnson contributed to. The win also helped cap the team’s dinish to an undefeated season

at home, something that hasn’t happened since the 2002 season. Johnson said despite what they’ve accomplished up until this point, he’s excited for what lies ahead. “People have been talking about building this team and this program up for years,” Johnson said. “It’s dedinitely

been a struggle but we’ve conquered it. We’ve got so many people and fans that have our back, and I just want to go out there and make them proud. I want to win this one and keep moving forward.

Canty named C-USA freshman of the week HERDZONE.COM Coming off a week that included overcoming a 16-point deficit to defeat two-time defending Sun Belt Champion Western Kentucky (Nov. 26), redshirt freshman guard Kareem Canty has been named Conference USA Freshman of the Week, the league office announced Monday afternoon. The weekly awards are chosen by a media panel representing the 16 member schools. This marks the dirst weekly honor in Canty’s career and the 11th Freshman of the Week honor in program history. The last player for the Thundering Herd to receive the honor was

SPORTS EDITOR The Bowl Championship Series will end a year too late for the Thundering Herd. The BCS rankings, which combine both human and computer rankings, gave Rice (9-3, 7-1) the edge over Marshall (9-3, 7-1) by .219, giving the Owl’s the tiebreaker to host the C-USA Championship Saturday in Houston. The wound was salted by the fact that the Herd beat the Owls in both human rankings that contribute to the BCS, the USA Today Coaches and Harris polls. The Owls may have won fair and square, but having the C-USA Championship game in Houston instead of Huntington is bad for the conference, and honestly a shame. Huntington hosted six straight MidAmerican Conference Championships from 1997 to 2002, winning five. During a season that has reminded fans

of the glory years, Huntington would almost certainly fill out the Joan. The rowdy, Black Friday crowd of 25,000 that watched the Herd handle ECU was just a taste, and that was with most students home for Thanksgiving. The Owl’s averaged 18,493 fans at its dive home games this season (and had an attendance of 14,204 against the Herd in 2012). The Herd has averaged 25,023 in six home games, a difference of 6,530. Beyond the numbers, hosting a championship would have meant so much more to Huntington than it will to Houston. Rice, a small private school not normally known for athletics outside of baseball, simply does not garner enough of the market share in the city of nearly 5 million in a state dilled with eonghorns, Aggies, Bears and Horned Frogs. A championship game in Huntington would also benedit C-USA. What would look better to a national TV audience; a

DeAndre Kane, who did so for the week of Feb. 7, 2011. Over the two-game week, Canty averaged 17.0 points and 4.5 assists 33.5 minutes. Against WKU, Canty ranked second on the team in scoring with 15, before scoring 19 and recording six assists in a losing effort to ETSU (Nov. 30). Ranking sixth in the nation in assists per game (7.3) and ninth in the country in total steals (51), Canty has helped the Herd greatly from the point position. Marshall will continue its four-game span away from the Cam Henderson Center at Vanderbilt, Thursday, Dec. 5 at 8 p.m.

half-empty stadium on the outskirts of a metropolis that doesn’t really care, or a packed stadium in a town that is inseparably attached to its school? In a college football landscape where market size seems to matter more than success or tradition, another championship in Joan C. Edwards Stadium would have been refreshing. Beyond any of that, as a student I can tell you that nothing would have gotten the school more excited than a conference championship. But the almighty computer rankings have spoken and the C-USA Championship will be in Houston, for better or naught. The Herd fan base travels well and there should be a noticeable smattering of kelly green in Rice Stadium, but what TV audiences will notice is the grey of empty bleachers.

Online Polls


Deer season should be extended Judging from the carcasses slung over hoods and lying in truck beds around the mountain state, it would seem that the white-tail deer population is well under control. This could not be further from the truth. According to National Wildlife Research Center scientist Kurt VerCauteren, there are more white-tail deer in the U.S. today than there were before Columbus discovered America. The estimated 32 million deer (including white-tails and the western mule deer), is an 800 percent increase from the mid-1950s. Other common, hunt-able animals such as raccoon, beaver and wild turkey, have seen even more dramatic population growth of over 1,500 percent in that same time span. The problem is particularly palpable in West Virginia. West Virginia topped State

Farm Insurance’s list of states in which a motorist is most likely to hit a deer, putting the odds at one in 41 with the average repair bill costing around $3,000. While a large deer population isn’t much of a threat (except to motorists), a large population of prey naturally results in an increase in apex predators such as wolves, grizzly bear and cougars. Though the jirst two have never been an issue in West Virginia, cougar sightings have spiked in recent years. The obvious solution is to kill the deer. Last season, West Virginia hunters harvested 131,444 deer, but this is not enough. West Virginia needs to extend hunting season, particularly the jirearm season. In 2013 jirearm season opened Nov. 25 and will run through Saturday. Beginning the season a week earlier would give hunters more time to thin out deer populations that

have been injlated by protection as well as more abundant food provided by human intervention. An earlier season would also give hunters a better opportunity during the height of the rut, deer mating season. The rut is favorable for hunters because it encourages movement in deer, particularly the bucks that are most sought after. Any hunter will tell you that if the deer aren’t moving, it is a lot more difjicult to have success. For those out there who abhor the thought of a hunter shooting poor Bambi, consider this. If a hunter does not kill a deer, it’s most likely cause of death will be being hit by a car or starvation. Beginning jirearm season in West Virginia would be a win for hunters, deer populations and the state.



Yousafzai proves education is key By TOMMY D. G. FERRELL

COLUMNIST My recurring theme on this page each week is education. I cannot stress the importance of education in any society, and, as the president of the Higher Education Defense Group, I regularly give great emphasis to the importance of defending and strengthening our system for fair and accessible opportunities for college. In some places, that is not quite the case. For some groups of people, that is not quite the case. Try Pakistan, one of the many regions continuously plagued by the Taliban, where about half of the population does not have access to education. That half: women. Forget the discussion about paying for education in the economically challenged area of the world or even the social stigma that continue to hinder gender equality there. What would you think if I told you that when a 15-year-old girl’s name was called out on a school bus, she was shot in the head for wanting girls to get an education? More importantly, what would you think if I told you that she survived and, instead of living in fear, is now has louder voice than ever as an advocate for genderequal access to education? This is the reality for many girls in the Middle East, and that girl exists. Her name is Malala Yousafzai, and, as 2013 approaches

a close, I recognize her as a hero of mine. She is my person of the year. Her journey started when she was 11, writing—under a pseudonym—a blog for BBC News detailing her life under the shade of the Taliban’s violent thumb and her advocacy for giving girls access to an education. The next year, “The New York Times” created a documentary about her fascinating life and focusing on her strong advocacy, fascinating because of the depth of her views given her young age. Unafraid of terroristic threats made against her and her father, from whom she developed her initial ideals on education activism, she continued to speak out, giving remarks at events and participating in news interviews. The Taliban’s threats did not work, and they did not like it. “We had no intentions to kill her but were forced when she would not stop,” said a spokesman of the organization. Yousafzai had not excluded the possibility she might one day be killed for her activism. In fact, she had envisioned such an attack: “I think of it often and imagine the scene clearly. Even if they come to kill me, I will tell them what they are trying to do is wrong, that education is our basic right.” How many people have the courage of their convictions to say they will look death

in the face and call it a liar? Not only did she say it, she is carrying it out today. Since she recovered, leaders around the world have recognized Yousafzai for her emphatic advocacy, including President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Interview requests, special events in her name and awards to her have come abound to her, but the bread and butter that led to all the attention is still being fully carried out. She continues to speak around the world, including meeting with world leaders and telling them to their face the injustice she and those like her have suffered. The Taliban sought to end her voice, but they have magnijied it enormously. As HEDG president, I am in the business of keeping college degrees accessible for West Virginians; my challenge is the West Virginia Legislature. Yousafzai’s challenge is a social system of inequality for access to the most basic education, bolstered by killings of those who challenge it. She is a hero of mine. Now at 16, her work has just begun, and I cannot wait to see where she goes from here. Considering all the people that have made headlines in 2013, she deserves distinction. She is my person of the year. Tommy D. G. Ferrell can be contacted at

MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE (MCT) Listen up, if you can still hear me. A recent New York Times article, “Ground-Shaking Noise Rocks N.F.L., and Eardrums Take Big Hit,” documents something that we already know about professional football games: they are extremely loud. The crowds themselves are huge, of course, but the elevated noise levels aren’t entirely the natural result of the fans’ aroused enthusiasm for their teams. In fact, crowds are encouraged to yell ever louder by the league, by the franchises, and by groups of fans organized around the principle that loud is better. For example, Terrorhead Returns, a club that supports the Kansas City Chiefs, sponsored a “scream-a-thon” recently during a game against the Oakland Raiders and pumped the crowd up to a din that reached 137.5 decibels, a Guinness world record for the loudest crowd roar in an outdoor stadium. The Seattle Seahawks’ version of Terrorhead Returns is a group called The 12th Man, which asserts that Seattle’s fans are the loudest in the NFL. The club portrays its claim to the previous record decibel mark by plotting it along a scale that rates ordinary conversation at 50 decibels. The 12th Man’s previous record reached 136.6 decibels, registering between “Jet Takeoff” and “Aircraft Carrier Flight Deck,” which is just below “Eardrum Rupture,” at 150 decibels. But these levels on the scale are already well above “Hearing Damage” at 90 decibels and “Serious Hearing Damage” at 100. Hearing experts say the damage actually starts at 85. Why do the fans want to make so much noise? The 12th Man aspires to an active role in the game itself, implying on its website that the “ear-shattering noise” interferes with opponents’ signal calling and contributes to an average of 2.36 false starts per game. But apart from audiologists and a few parents and curmudgeons, nobody seems very concerned about the extreme

noise in NFL stadiums. An appeal to old-fashioned sportsmanship probably won’t achieve much traction among modern football fans. And while cumulative, irreversible hearing loss is clearly occurring, its progress is gradual and may not manifest itself for decades. To be fair, noise-induced hearing loss is related to the length of exposure to levels above about 85 decibels. Attending a football game or two is unlikely to cause much long-term damage. But I started thinking about this issue a decade ago, when I was driven from a movie theater by a soundtrack so loud that it resonated in my chest cavity. At about the same time, my own ancient mother was becoming increasingly isolated by her failing ability to hear. The fact is, we live in a ubiquitously noisy society. Any damage caused by attending a football game or two is added to the damage that occurs at rock concerts, movie theatres, boisterous bars and loud restaurants, or as the result of the habitual use of ear buds. In this noisy environment, we shouldn’t be particularly surprised by a jinding from the Journal of the American Medical Association, as reported in the New York Times in 2011: the number of teenagers with some level of hearing loss has increased 33 percent since 1994. So, as cumulative brain damage accrues on the playing jield, at noise levels this high cumulative and irreversible hearing damage is occurring among the fans in the stands as well. But this threat to our national ability to hear well later in life is insidious. As with chronic traumatic encephalopathy, smoking, heart disease or climate change, the damage occurs in tiny increments and the bad results can take decades to materialize. Therefore, we do very little about it. Meanwhile, the Oct. 21 issue of The New Yorker features a poignant cartoon: A couple is dining in a crowded restaurant. The server approaches their table and asks: “Can I get you any more deafening loudness?” But in modern America, the server’s question is the straight line; the punch line is, of course, “Huh?”

DETROIT FREE PRESS (MCT) A Michigan woman is taking on the nation’s Catholic hospitals in federal court, alleging they are unlawfully denying certain life-saving treatment to pregnant women who are miscarrying for fear they might be participating in an abortion. The Muskegon, Mich., woman, with help from the American Civil Liberties Union, sued the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on Monday, alleging the group’s anti-abortion directive denies pregnant women in crisis proper medical care. In her case, the lawsuit said, the directive contributed to a painful miscarriage and offered her no options. The case involves Tamesha Means, who was rushed to Mercy Health Partners in Muskegon in December 2010 when her water broke after 18 weeks of pregnancy. Based on the bishops’ religious directives, the


Continued from Page 1 Despite achieving solo success with songs such as “The Real Thing” and “Inside Your Heaven,” Bice said he is unsure on whether or not his own songs will be incorporated into the show. “It’s not something I’m going to say won’t happen, but to be honest with you, I kind of like it to where when people come out, they see Blood, Sweat & Tears for what Blood, Sweat & Tears is,” Bice said. “Right now I’m more focused on making sure that we make Blood, Sweat & Tears a hit together.”


Continued from Page 2 Walker’s role in “Fast 7,” though, is a tightrope walk for Universal, which understandably would want to promote the actor’s jinal jilm without appearing to be capitalizing on it. Walker’s sudden death also raises questions about the long-term viability of the series. “Fast & Furious” movies have grossed $2.3 billion worldwide, with the most recent, 2013’s “Fast Six,” the highest-grossing ($789 million). While the series, which already has an eighth jilm in development, has rotated characters in and out over its 12-year history, the nucleus has been the buddy dynamic of Walker’s O’Conner and Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto, who have been in every movie but

lawsuit said, the hospital sent her home twice even though Means was in “excruciating pain.” There was virtually no chance that her pregnancy could survive, and continuing the pregnancy posed signijicant risks to her health, according to the ACLU. But because of its Catholic afjiliation and binding directives, the hospital told Means that there was nothing it could do, the ACLU said. And it did not tell her that abortion was an option, it added. According to the suit, Means returned to the hospital a third time in extreme distress and with an infection. The hospital again tried to send her home, but while staff prepared her discharge paperwork, she began to deliver. At that point, the hospital tended to her miscarriage. Ofjicials at Mercy Health Partners were not readily available for comment. “They never offered me any

options,” Means said in a prepared statement. “They didn’t tell me what was happening to my body. Whatever was going on with me, they discussed it amongst themselves. I was just left to wonder, ‘what’s going to happen to me?’’’ The ACLU of Michigan intervened and jiled a lawsuit on behalf of Means, alleging she was denied appropriate medical treatment because the only hospital in her county is required to abide by religious directives. Those directives, the lawsuit said, prohibited the hospital from complying with the applicable standard of care in Means’ case. According to the ACLU, Catholic-sponsored hospitals are required to adhere to the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services. The directives prohibit a pre-viability pregnancy termination, even when there is little or no chance that the fetus will

survive, and the life or health of a pregnant woman is at risk, the ACLU said. The directives also direct health care providers not to inform patients about alternatives. The lawsuit alleges that, because of the directives, the bishop’s conference is ultimately responsible for the unnecessary trauma and harm that Means and other pregnant women in similar situations have experienced at Catholicsponsored hospitals. “The best interests of the patient must always come jirst and this fundamental ethic is central to the medical profession,” said Kary Moss, executive director of the ACLU of Michigan. “In this case, a young woman in a crisis situation was put at risk because religious directives were allowed to interfere with her medical care. Patients should not be forced to suffer because of a hospital’s religious afjiliation.”

While performing the catalogue of one of his favorite bands was appealing, Bice said there was something else that got him interested. “The main reason I got involved in this and what really sparked my interest in this wasn’t just the catalogue of the band. It was more of the fact that we’re going to be doing the first studio album for Blood, Sweat & Tears in almost two decades,” Bice said. “It was more knowing that we’re going to have the opportunity to bring a band that’s already a huge legendary band into the modern age with a new singer and a new kind of vibe and a new

element to their music.” Bice said the album is still in its early stages. “I’m writing myself. We’re all writing individually and able to write together as we find time on the road and to do things like that,” Bice said. “So it’s still in its infancy, but I would say that an album is probably next year.” Bice said that his work with the band will not affect his solo career. “I’m not shutting the door on Bo Bice or anything like that,” Bice said. “It’s really just more than anything, I guess I’m adding a feature to my little tool bag—to be able to go out and do something as great

as Blood, Sweat & Tears and then to also have the ability to go out and be Bo Bice and do my stuff is not an option that just falls in your lap every day.” Blood, Sweat & Tears will perform at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are free for full-time students and vary for the public based on seating. Tickets can be purchased through the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center by picking them up at the box office or calling 304-696-3326.

“The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift,” the series’ least successful installment. Still, many in Hollywood expect it to continue, with the brand considered a larger draw than any single performer. Walker, 40, died as a Santa Clarita charity event and car show was winding down, when he and friend Roger Rodas went for a ride in a red Porsche, a witness said. Jim Torp heard a loud boom and said he knew in his heart that his friends had been in an accident. The smoke from the crash was visible from Always Evolving, the automotive shop where car enthusiasts and supporters were gathered. The event was held in support of Walker’s jirst-aid organization, Reach Out Worldwide, with proceeds earmarked for families affected by the typhoon in the Philippines and a tornado in Indiana, Torp said.

Sheriff’s ofjicials said speed may have been a factor in the crash, which occurred on a quiet street with a 45-mph limit. The car knocked over a tree and a concrete lamp post. The cause of the crash remains under investigation, sheriff’s Deputy Kim Manatt told the Los Angeles Times. Walker has several other pictures already shot; Saturday’s news had those jilms’ distributors contemplating their options. Walker’s survival drama “Hours” had been set by the boutique company Pantelion Films for a limited theatrical and VOD release on Dec. 13. On Sunday morning, Pantelion Chief Executive Paul Presburger and “Hours” producer Peter Safran convened to discuss whether to push that date. “We thought long and hard about pulling the release,”

Presburger said. “We were trying to determine what was the best way to honor him and this movie that he was very proud of. But this is the plan we pitched in the room to Paul — the one he was excited about — and we’re going to move forward with it.” In the jilm, Walker plays a man trying to keep his infant daughter alive in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The movie represents perhaps Walker’s biggest role and certainly one of his most emotional. Shot in New Orleans in just 18 days, “Hours” was also the jirst movie Walker produced. In September, Walker had also jinished shooting “Brick Mansions,” a crime drama penned by Luc Besson. Relativity Media has weighed a release in the jirst quarter of 2014, with nothing jinalized yet, a spokesman said.

it can be argued that both the Virginia Tech Hokies and Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders are decent teams, Marshall should have picked up the W both of those times as well. The C-USA Championship game is at noon Saturday on ESPN2. Colton Jeffries can be contacted at Jeffries17@
