Raleigh, North Carolina


On Monday, members of the GLBT center met in Talley Student Center’s Brown Room for the GLBT’s new ‘Lunch and Learn’ Series. The focus was “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” a law prohibiting lesbians and gays from serving openly in the military. Since DADT was enacted in 1993, over 14,000 gay and lesbian service members have been discharged from service. Evelyn Reiman, associate vicechancellor for student affairs, said she believes DADT puts ROTC members with concerns about their sexuality in an uncomfortable situation. “Students in ROTC might feel at risk even stopping by the [GLBT] office,” Reiman said, According to Justine Hollingshead, the director of GLBT, the DADT policy leaves gay service men and women with a tough decision. “People make a conscious choice whether you are going to be out and not serve or be in the closet and serve,” Hollingshead said. Students joining ROTC know the program must follow policy and that

they will be dismissed if they come out to their officers, according to Hollingshead. “These are people that want to serve our country. They should be able to and not have to live in that cloak of fear,” Hollingshead said. Hollingshead said that if DADT is repealed, it doesn’t mean the military will be “warm and welcoming” to gay and lesbian members, but it opens up doors for changing the way people think. Bill Swallow, a member of the GLBT subcommittee and professor emeritus in statistics, said the military is just getting used to the idea of allowing diversity and pointed out the military recently allowed women to serve on submarines. “The military just turned like an ocean liner, very, very, very slowly,” Swallow said. Lisa Zapata, associate vice-chancellor for student affairs, said that students should not blame people in uniform for military policy. “The policy is made by politicians and [people in uniform] are just enacting what the rules are,” Zapata said. “They would do a 180 [degrees] and it would be completely different if the


law were to be repealed.” Army ROTC Master Sergeant Albert Lampkins, said DADT is not something the ROTC program at the University can control. “I don’t really have any opinions of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy,” Lampkins said. “It’s a Department of Defense policy all veterans and current members must follow.” ROTC members must follow federal policy, but it is against campus policy to discriminate against people based on sexual orientation. Deb Luckadoo, director of Campus Activities, said she thinks that, if not prohibited, commanders should have conversations with ROTC students about being open minded when it comes to diversity in the military. But Swallow said he thinks the University should go further. “ROTC probably shouldn’t be allowed on campus if they are going to discriminate,” Swallow said. “It is campus policy not to discriminate based on sexual orientation.” Choi said he is strongly against DADT. “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is immoral. It forces people to lie,” Dan Choi said. Dan Choi is a lieutenant who gained

notability because of his announcement on The Rachel Maddow Show about his sexual orientation. Choi is gay. Choi is coming to N.C. State on Oct. 12. The event, hosted by The Union Activities Board and the GLBT center, will feature a lecture as well as a question and answer session with Choi. Choi said he thinks every American should be against DADT. “It makes me vomit,” Choi said. “It should make every patriotic American vomit.” Choi is a West Point graduate, Arabic linguist, Iraq vetaran and infantry officer. “I speak about the consequences of telling the truth under Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and of living a lie through my personal journey,” Choi said. “I let people know our belief system is against our integrity.” Choi said he believes full personhood is achieved through love. “I believe full personhood is only achieved after falling in

Kidnapping referrals to the University After the Raleigh Police Department was called to Avent Ferry Complex, students were referred to the University. Chelsey Francis Deputy News Editor

Six students were referred to the University because of a kidnapping incident at the Avent Ferry Complex, according to Jim Sughrue, director of public affairs with the Raleigh Police Department. The kidnapping incident occurred Sept. 28. According to the case report, one of the six student also received a judicial referral for six counts of weapons violations. The seized weapons included two pendent knives, one cane sword, and three pairs of brass knuckles. “There was an incident involving six students that could be considered kidnapping,” Barnwell said. “That’s a Raleigh Police Department case.” The kidnapping incident was written as a miscellaneous information report, Sughrue said.

Governor Perdue formally recognizes an “eLearning Commission” following the receipt of federal funding. Brooke Wallig Staff Writer

On Sept. 24 Governor Beverley Perdue announced the formal creation of an “eLearning Commission” to advise her on how to better incorporate new technology in more North Carolina schools. Ac c ord i ng to C h r i s Mackey, a representative for Governor Perdue, since the commission has received money from the federal government, it is better able to serve the community. “North Carolina received about $400 million in Race to the Top funding, and some of that money will be put into this commission and its main purpose,” said Mackey. Mackey said the commission’s work will be aligned with the governor’s “Ready, Set, Go!” initiative. The program focuses on proper assessment of student ability at various levels of education and setting goals for each student so they are more likely to succeed in either the workforce or in their post-secondary education. One thing the commission has already begun working on is the creation of more accessible online courses and degree programs. Marquis McCollough, a teacher at Cary High School and recent N.C. State graduate, said he hopes whatever the commission decides to put into classrooms will be

backed up by the inclusion of the training to use them. “Personally, I think increasing the amount of technology in classrooms is needed, but what’s more important is that for any technology that is provided there needs to be training on how to use it,” McCollough said. “That’s where the biggest disconnect is now.” McCollough said he believes the Governor is working hard to improve educational systems, but he wants the focus to be on moderation. “I think the use of technology definitely enhances both the instructor and the students’ experiences,” said McCollough. “Technology isn’t something we should be scared of. But I do think we shouldn’t rely too heavily on it. It’s all about moderation, really.” Michael Clinkscales, the director of the N.C. State Teaching Fellows program, said when it comes to technology, quality of experience far outweighs the quantity of devices. “We can’t just say we are using technolog y. Teachers cannot just say, ‘Make a spreadsheet on Excel,’” said Clinkscales. “They have to be able to know what to do with this technology, what practical applications it has and how to teach those analytical skills to the students. We should spend money on meaningful technology.” One way Clinkscales said he believes will make this an easier goal is to put more qualified teachers in the classrooms. “Technolog y alone isn’t enough,” said Clinkscales. “We need teachers who are mastering their skills who will then teach these students how to successful use new technology in practical, useful ways. Quality teachers and increase in quality technology go hand in hand.”

Woodson asked to tell about diversity N


“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is the military’s gay discrimination policy enacted in 1993. This policy applies to ROTC programs on college campuses. Gay ROTC members risk being discharged from the program and losing their scholarships.


The chancellor has taken a stance on diversity and hopes to create “a culture that values empathy, respect, tolerance and equality for all.” With “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” still effecting gay students on campus, this is not possible, therefore ROTC’s presence on campus should be reconsidered.

Smoking letter I am writing to voice my frustration that smoking is still allowed at N.C. State University. N.C. State has never taken this issue seriously and as a student, I am quite disappointed. The 15 feet distance from building smoking requirement is only adhered to when the weather is nice and never enforced. The University is so quick and eager to ban illegal drugs and institute high penalties for their use, but throws smoking under the bus. This complete ban on smoking suggestion is not a radical move, it is the right move and it is the right time. Other institutions in Raleigh have already made this a reality. The two largest hospitals in Raleigh, Rex and WakeMed, do not allow any smoking anywhere on their property. Both hospitals have thousands of employees and WakeMed‚ Raleigh campus has at least 195,000 sq. ft. We cannot call ourselves a healthy university while our students hold their breath behind smokers in the Free Expression Tunnel on the way to class. We cannot call ourselves a lively campus when we have students slowly killing themselves and others on our grounds. We cannot call ourselves a beautiful campus when our view is clouded by smoke. Why are we letting a quick and easy way to distinguish both our university and ourselves by banning smoking slip away? Why are we bending over backward to accommodate the minute percentage of students at this university that smoke? Why are we still allowing smoking for the 10 percent of the student body while the other 90 percent holds their breath, cough and die slowly when around smokers? Why do we have to wait for other universities around the country to take the lead on this endeavor? Why not us, why not now? Imagine what a smoke free campus would look like: no

.C. State has maintained a strong military presence since its founding in 1887, offering all four Reserve Officer Training Corps programs to students to gain experience with the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines. However, the 1993 enactment of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, ROTC members at our University who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender are at risk, despite a stringent University policy on diversity. With this in mind, the chancellor should not allow the ROTC program to enforce this policy if the University community is to truly be diverse and welcoming. In his diversity statement, the chancellor’s claim that “we welcome all people regardless of ethnicity, race, national origin, age, gender, orientation, socioeconomic background, religion or disability,” is noble but contradictory to the University’s “Equal Opportunity and Non-discrimination Policy Statement.” The first article of that policy states that “it is the policy of the State of North

more having to hold your breath while walking to your dorm in the tunnels. No more having to move because a smoker sits down next to you. No more coughing because inconsiderate people blew smoke in your face. It would allow our university to establish itself as one of the healthiest universities in the country, not by words, but by actions. It would be an effective recruitment tool for highly qualified students and professors. Most importantly, a smoke free campus would mean a healthier Wolfpack. Timur Ender senior, criminology

Student Government not advertising correctly Student Government doesn’t advertise pro actively about the open forums. I support Matt Johnson’s views written in the viewpoint section of Technician today, however I believe the editorial is lacking addressing one major point in all of this: advertisement. Do the students actually know what’s going on? If Kelly Hook and the rest of the Student Government are really interested in getting the students’ opinions, should they not advertise more? They certainly advertise themselves to get voted to their positions, but it seems it all quiets down from then on. Campus Activities and UAB advertise more than the Student Government.¬† Who actually visits the webpage? Not everyone has a chance to read the Technician everyday. More so, most engineering students are always on Centennial Campus. That’s a big chunk of the student body right there. What advertisement has the Student Government done on Centennial Campus? While Student Government claims that they advertise via their students.ncsu website and some sandwich boards outside of Witherspoon, etc, in order for students to know about these happenings, they really have to be proactive about it and search for updates. At the end of the day, most students don’t participate because it’s too much work to get that information. Why even try when their views just get lost in the business and politics of the Student Government, endorsers, and the UNC Board? Fine, so let’s accept that the Student Government actually does everything it can to advertise and maybe I just didn’t know about it, but has anyone taken

Carolina to provide equality of opportunity in education and employment for all students and employees” and that the University “does not practice or condone unlawful discrimination in any form against students, employees or applicants on the grounds of race, color, religion, creed, sex, national origin, age, disability or veteran status.” The policy goes on to state the University only allows discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation when it overlaps with federal or state law, abandoning the GLBT community and the University’s principles when circumstances when it interferes “with the University’s relationships with outside organizations, including the federal government, the military, ROTC and private employers.” The University contradicts itself again in the very next article that states “discrimina-

tion based upon race, color, religion, creed, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, or sexual orientation is in violation of federal and state law and North Carolina State University policy, and will not be tolerated.” The chancellor needs to clarify where the University stands: with the GLBT community or with ROTC and “outside organizations.” If Woodson claims to be “committed to the collective pursuit of excellent through acceptance of both individuals and ideas,” students in the ROTC programs who identify as gay should be protected and allowed to pursue their passions. Regardless of their orientation, students who choose to join the ROTC program in college must go through selective testing to get into the four programs and maintain a rigorous course load. These students show their passion

in their determination to be a part of this program during their academic careers here -and no discriminatory policy, or federal or otherwise, should stop them. To truly support a diverse campus community, the chancellor needs to state clearly for the University if he stands with students. That clarification means making hard choices about the future of ROTC on this campus. Until “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is repealed, he should consider separating the ROTC programs from the University. In his diversity statement, Woodson said we should “serve as pioneers.” To do this, the University needs to make a national statement that it will not tolerate discrimination of its students. “It is no longer enough to simply recognize these things,” the chancellor said about diversity. “We must now fully embrace them with open arms.” It is time for the new chancellor to put words into action, or risk showing that embrace as an empty gesture.

a look at the meeting minutes on the page? These “minutes” are useless. How is someone that missed the meeting supposed to find out what’s going on? The point is that the SG barely advertises these “open forums.” Would students come out even if they were pro actively advertised? Probably no. Why? Because the Student Government has continued to say “*explicit* You” to the students through their actions over the past few years and this year. A lack of common sense on Student Government’s part (for example: any idiot could have predicted the chaos that would happen due to a lack of student tickets for the Virginia Tech game) over the past few years has resulted in a lack of trust and care from the student body.

Unbiased praise I completely agree with everything you [Chad] said in the article. It was well articulated and completely unbiased. I was completely caught off-guard and pleasantly surprised to read such a well written and non-liberal and unforceful article. I think it was brilliant to urge people to vote but only if they know the issues at hand and where the candidates stand on those issues. That clearly was an issue in 2008 and it has now lead us to the position our country sits in today. Thanks for writing a good, objective article! Neil Fowler, sophomore, criminology

Bigger, better, faster – and in 3D! Video games join feature films in the third dimension Jordan Alsaqa Senior Staff Writer

In the past few years, an old trend has returned to Hollywood in the form of 3D movies. 3D films have been produced since the fifties, rising and falling in popularity about once every decade. Until now, the technology has been seen as little more than a gimmick. Today, while many still see 3D as an unnecessary addition to the viewing experience, it now seems poised and ready to make a comeback. And this time, it may be here to stay. More and more films are being filmed in 3D, or are being converted to a 3D format for their release. Even older films are seeing 3D implementation. This past week, Lucasfilm announced plans to re-release all six Star Wars films in the format, starting in 2012. Ian Torr, a senior in English, is among those who feel 3D is little more than fluff. “These days, we’re seeing mostly remakes and recycled ideas in Hollywood,” Torr said. “All the 3D seems like just a way to hide

ber. Of course, the biggest leap forward in 3D gaming comes from Nintendo’s recently announced handheld, the Nintendo 3DS. Premiered at this year’s E3, the new system will be the successor to the popular Nintendo DS, and features 3D imaging without the need for any kind of specialized glasses. At the end of September, the system’s release date was announced as February 16 of next year in Japan, and probably a month later in the States. While falling inside of the release window promised at E3, many feel that Nintendo risks a lot by dragging its feet on the release. Craig Harris, an editor for the gaming site IGN, shares the worry that Nintendo is making a mistake by waiting. “The longer Nintendo holds onto the system, the greater the chance that another cool gadget will sneak in there with a glasses-free stereoscopic display to steal the 3DS system’s thunder,” Harris said in a recent editorial. “I’ll bet we’ll see at least three consumer grade mainstream products hit the market before Nintendo’s now, like a 3D picture frame or a digital camera.” Regardless of i m itators, T he 3DS has a great deal of hype, and numerous thirdparty developers have already

shown off impressive tech demos. Capcom announced the long-awaited third game in the Mega Man Legends series, as well as a new Resident Evil game using the same engine as Resident Evil 5. More impressive than the 3D effects are the improved graphics, a leap ahead of the original DS. With graphics that rival even current generation 360 and PS3 games, it is clear that Nintendo has made a legitimate evolution in its handheld market, as opposed to simply slapping on 3D to try and move units. As 3D technology continues to develop, it remains to be seen how permanent its current popularity is. As with any special effect, it can be used either with subtlety, as with Avatar, or be a pointless addition, such as in this past summer’s biggest 3D flop, The Last Airbender. It is left to the filmmakers and game developers to prove the technology’s worth in future projects.

Let Me In

Overture Films

Steve Rau Staff Writer

You can blame it on Edward Cullen. You can blame it on Bill Compton. But one thing is clear: vampires have attacked the pop culture. Everywhere you look, there is a new TV show or movie featuring vampires. It’s getting to the point where vampires (pardon the pun) have sucked the genre dry. The new vampire phenomenon has caused a dramatic change in the popular perception of what a vampire is. Today’s vampire is most likely an immortal man who somehow has to look like he came out of a Ralph Lauren ad who protects their one true love, even from themselves. This might be fine for pre-teen girls, but for those who remember, vampires were once one of the most frightening monsters in film. Thank goodness for Let Me In. Let Me In is a remake of the 2008 Swedish thriller Let the Right One In, but if you haven’t seen the Swedish film, don’t worry. This film adapts the original very faithfully, while still being able to add its own elements to the story. The movie is set in Los Alamos, New Mexico in the year 1983. We meet Owen, played by Kodi Smit-McPhee, a 12-year old with a very unhappy life. His parents neglect him and he is constantly harassed at school

by a group of bullies. One day, a girl and what appears to be her father move in to the apartment next door. The girl is Abby, played by Chloe Moretz of Hit-Girl (in Kick-Ass) fame. The two form a friendship, even though Abby is very reluctant, telling Owen they can’t be friends without a reason. Eventually the two become very close friends. Abby convinces Owen to stand up to the bullies and even offers to help, claiming “she’s stronger than she looks.” That becomes very clear, as Owen learns that his new friend is a vampire. Meanwhile, Abby’s “father”/protector hunts for blood to feed her. Coming off of his directing work with the monster film Cloverfield, Matt Reeves is developing an art style of his own that shines in this film. The scenes are beautifully shot, and the music throughout the movie adds to the tone as everything begins to fall apart. But most important to the film’s success are the performances by Kodi Smit-McPhee and Chloe Moretz. Smit-McPhee brings a maturity to Owen and Moretz proves that her brilliant performance in Kick-Ass wasn’t a fluke as the vampire Abby. Underneath her sweet exterior, Moretz unleashes a feral, raging monster which at times actually scared me. All in all, Let Me In is both a suspenseful thriller and a brilliant film, maintained by two very talented child actors. If you want a vampire film that has more blood than angst, go see Let Me In.

There has been much ado in the media lately about whether the new film The Social Network tells the real story of Facebook, or a trumped up and dramatized version to make for an exciting film. The truth is that there is no “real” story; there is only the truth as the people involved chose to tell it. This is the dilemma screenwriter Aaron Sorkin faced when adapting the story for the screen. Sorkin’s decision was to tell the story from three different perspectives – those of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, his original partner Eduardo Severin who later sued him, and the Winklevoss twins who claimed they actually invented Facebook first. This tactic for dealing with the material was brilliant, and it was the only way the story could accurately be told. The result is a biopic that is not about Facebook, but rather, chronicles the lives of a group of young men as they struggle to define themselves against the backdrop of the Harvard social scene and in the midst of the tech boom of the early 21st century. The film transcends its own subject matter to become a fantastically enjoyable tale told at as a fast a pace as any thriller. The film begins, suitably, with a discussion between main character Mark Zuckerberg (played by Jesse Eisenberg) and his current girlfriend Erica (played by Rooney Mara) as they

discuss his desires to get into an elite social club. Actually, Zuckerberg does most of the talking, and Erica begins to feel more like a hostage than a girlfriend. And even as Zuckerberg proceeds to offend Erica so badly that she breaks up with him, he still has no idea what he said that was so wrong. This disconnected obliviousness on Zuckerberg’s part, and the decisions he makes as a result, serve as a catalyst for ma ny of t he events of the film. Eisenberg plays the role brilliantly, never imitating the real life Zuckerberg, but instead channeling the single-minded intensity he must have felt in the days he spent creating Facebook. And the amazing part is that Eisenberg also manages to make the character likable. I left the film seething with anger at the things Zuckerberg did to the people in his life, but also with an understanding of the fragile ego at the root of all those bad decisions. Zuckerberg, at least in the film’s esti-

mation, is a guy who wanted a girl to love him – who wanted the world to accept him – and who, in the process of pursuing this love and acceptance, made some incredibly selfish decisions. The character is so complex, so multi-dimensional, that he rises above his bad decisions in my mind. And to convey all of that within 120 minutes of film is an impressive feat. This feat is accomplished, first and foremost, through the expert direction of David Fincher. Network moves at the pace of any firstrate thriller, and each scene contains so many little details that add to the overall filmic canvas. Zuckerberg is never just in front of a computer monitor. Instead, he is fidgeting in front of a computer monitor with his eyes fixed on the screen and a dart between his teeth to further accentuate his pinpoint focus. Sorkin’s writing, too, is top

“The Social Network is a movie that moves the audience as much as it informs them.”

notch. He makes the big decisions about plot and pacing well, but each single word is chosen with the same care. The conversations sound real enough to be believable, and epic enough to make the movie interesting and important. It’s a tough balancing act, and Sorkin walks the high wire like the seasoned pro that he is. The supporting cast also shines. Andrew Garfield plays Severin with poise and just enough conviction, and Armie Hammer, who was previously best known for his role on Gossip Girl, tackles the daunting task of playing both of the Winklevoss twins, instilling in each a unique and charismatic personality. And Rooney Mara, although on screen for only a few scenes, instills equal parts charm and vulnerability into her depiction of Erica, allowing the audience to understand how someone as cold as Zuckerberg could be enthralled by her every move. The Social Network is a movie that moves the audience as much as it informs them, and there is never a dull moment onscreen. This is not the “real” story of Facebook; this is the human story, behind Facebook. That is why this film will still matter 30 years from now.

Students gather for TV show ‘Glee’ In residence hall lounges across campus, students are gathering to watch television, discuss their favorite shows, and meet new people.� Jared Douglas Staff Writer

Though the calendar year may be winding down, the television year is just beginning, as many series start their new seasons. For N.C. State students, this provides a way to unwind during the week, take a break from their studies, and gather with old and new friends as they crowd into residence hall lounges to watch their favorite shows together. Television for many students is a social event, as freshman in electrical engineering, Paula McDonald explains. “Having people to watch [TV] with is half the experience,” McDonald said. The group setting can mean

slightly different things for different people, and depends upon the show. Programs like ABC’s Lost, which ended its final season earlier in the year, are notorious for their long, complicated plots and continuity between episodes. For viewers hoping to jump into these sorts of shows mid-run, this approach can be problematic. Ben Holden, freshman in mechanical engineering contrasts the continuity approach with other shows like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, in which each episode more or less had its own self-contained story. “[In Lost] you definitely needed to see most of the episodes to understand how the characters are interacting and what is going on,” Holden said. “I think CSI is a good example of the alternative. You can watch any random episode and be fine. It puts the episode’s plot first where Lost had one plot that it went with. When I have time on my hands, it’s easy to watch shows like Lost, but I

think having self-contained plots is better for the viewing audience because you can jump in anytime.” Some shows, like Fox’s Fringe try to tread a middle ground between these two methods. Clayton Price, freshman in engineering, explains. “Fringe is interesting because it has a plotline it follows, but most episodes you can watch and catch on to what is going on in that episode,” Price said. “I like how if I happen to miss an episode, I won’t have a problem watching the next episode and then going back and watching the one I missed.” In order to sort out his thoughts and theories, Price watches Fringe with other fans of the show in his residence hall’s lounge. “It’s more exciting that way,” Price said. “Some of us will remember things that other people forgot and we’ll just bring up interesting points and say where we think [the story is] heading. [Shows like Fringe]

Students from the honors quad get toether to watch the new episode in season 2 of Glee, titled Grilled Cheesus. Catie Trimble, a junior in accounting, Janey Kuyath, a sophomore in accounting, Bethany Vohlers, a freshman in statistics and computer science, Jennine Lection, a freshman in animal science, and Courtney Vaughn, a freshman in human biology, gather in Bagwell Residence Hall’s first floor lounge to to chill and enjoy the latest episode of the hit TV series.

benefit from being watched together because some people will remember details others don’t. You get more perspective on the show after discussing it.” A show doesn’t need to be complicated to be watched together, however. Glee, for example, is extremely popular among television groups across campus. In Glee’s case, however, watching a show together is mostly centered on social interaction rather than the analysis that Fringe groups like to focus on. A frequenter of these group watching sessions is Rachel Poe, freshman in engineering. “It’s really about a high school glee club and its evolution, but the reason I watch it is just for the music they do,” Poe said. “They redo all kinds of famous songs. It has a cultural impact. And it’s more fun to watch with a group of people because it’s fun to talk about it during the commercials. It’s more fun to be with people.”

TV groups have also introduced some students to new shows they would have never been interested in without the influence of their friends. “I’ve watched The Big Bang Theory,” Poe said. “I had never watched it before, and only did because there was a big group saying they were going to, and it was interesting. It was funny. I’d watch it again.” For many, there is no question – groups are the only way to watch television. “If I weren’t in a group, I feel like I would have to call someone right afterwards and ask, ‘did you watch that last one?!’” Paula McDonald said. “It’s easier to like things in a group because you’re laughing together; you’re trying to figure it out at the same time as everyone else, sort of like asking ‘did you catch that reference?’ to everyone else,” Ben Holden said. “It’s just easier to watch it in a group. Everyone is more motivated to watch it then

and there, so you’re less likely to skip an episode because you can tell there is a big group going together so you’re like ‘I might as well go watch too.’” Groups are meeting in residence hall lounges all over campus whenever Glee, Fringe, The Big Bang Theory or another big show is on TV, and are normally as easy to join as walking in and sitting down.

you have to have a clear head and be thinking straight. Speaking of Boston College, we are sure hoping to get a win. We need one not only to get back on track and hopefully start another winning streak, but also for coach O’Brien. Since Boston College is his old team and he is 0-3 against them so far, we want to get him a win and get that monkey off of his back. And to do that on the defensive side of the ball we just have to trust in the defense and the defensive game plan. It got us to 4-1 so far and it has worked well for us. We had the slip up last week but that doesn’t mean we abandon the game plan. We just have to stay focused and execute our assignments, believe in our system and hopefully we will come away with the victory.


Pack prevails with three second-half goals Men’s soccer team erases 0-2 deficit to defeat Georgia Southern J. Daniel Ely Staff Writer

After a shaky first half in which it fell behind 0-2, the Pack (5-5) scored three unanswered goals to seal a victory over the Georgia Southern Eagles (3-5-1) Tuesday night. The game was played in the coldest weather of the season, a large change from the 80-degree weather from a week ago. Despite the cold weather and harsh winds, the student section was still filled, with fans making sure their voice was heard. The home crowd, also referred as “The Den,” was in full force, even switching sides after the first half to stay on State’s side. “It was a really interesting game,” coach George Tarantini said. “We don’t have many games like this. They [the students] made this a good game to win.” The game had two completely different halves. In the first, State attempted twice as many shots as the Eagles, but none landed in the back of the net. Georgia Southern had two shots on goal, with both leading to scores. The second half was a complete turnaround for the Pack. The game took a turning point when sophomore David Brown scored in the 67th minute on assists from Tyler Lassiter and Zane Tharakan. “We knew coming out of the tent that we had to do a lot and that it could be the end of a lot of things,” Lassiter said. “Especially my senior year, I don’t want to leave losing to Georgia Southern and ruin our re-

cord. I just had to keep yelling and keeping my teammates up.” The last 10 minutes of the match proved to be the best played minutes for the Pack. One of the five shots attempted on the night, junior forward Craig Sutherland scored the game-tying goal on an assist Lucas Carpenter with nine minutes left. “It feels good to score a goal,” Sutherland said. “My parents are in town, so I don’t know if they’re a good luck charm. In the two games they’ve been here it has been three goals, so I’ve been pretty happy.” Physical play was allowed for much of the game, as only two yellow cards were given. Lassiter was involved in a

number of those physicals plays, with one yellow card issued to him. In the 73rd minute, Lassiter collided with an Eagle player going for a header, who was caught off guard. The impact left the Georgia Southern player in shock on the ground. “I was getting kind of frustrated I guess,” Lassiter said. “I just wanted to win the ball. I guess I came in a little late and took him down. I didn’t mean to, but that’s just what happened.” Lassiter play multiple positions on Tuesday, and tallied an assist on senior midfielder Chris Zuerner’s game-winning goal in the 83rd minute. It was the last goal of the night, as State was able to hold off the Eagles for the victory.


“I think that Tyler is such an important component,” Tarantini said. “He provides steam for the back, for the middle, for himself. The leadership from the seniors has been great. They did whatever they needed to do. We take it one day at a time and we’re going to be great.” After playing three games in the past seven days, the men’s soccer team will be at it again as it tries to defend its home turf against tobacco road rival Duke. The game is scheduled for Friday at 7 p.m. on Dail Field.

I hate to lose more than anything


kay, so at this point we all know what happened against Virginia Tech. We had the game but let it slip through our fingers. But I have to give credit where credit is due, Virginia Tech never gave up and played a great game and m a d e more Nate Irving plays than we did. Senior Middle Just like us, Linebacker they are led by a great quarterback in Tyrod Taylor. And he is something special, probably one of the top-three best players I have ever played against. He is a dual threat, both running the ball and throwing it, and just is a great decision maker and is just a really smart player. But with the mistakes we made, the penalties, the missed tackles and the interceptions, we only beat ourselves against the Hokies. We beat ourselves more than they beat us. And that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Every team needs to have the confidence that it is the only team that can beat itself and so far that seems to be the case. However, we have to move past that game. The game has been played and there isn’t anything we can do about it now. We just have to hit the film room and the practice field and learn why the mistakes happened, where they came from and try to do our best to fix it and get better for Boston College. Let’s get one thing straight, I’m not happy with the loss. I hate to lose more than anything. Some people have told me that I tend to be somewhat of a sore loser and I am okay with that, because it is probably true. I take every single loss personally and hate when people say that a loss is just another game. Now on to Boston College, and I know a lot of you guys think we will be out to extract revenge after the last game against the Eagles when BC’s running back Montel Harris went off against us. But football isn’t like that. If revenge is on your mind, then you are not focused on the game as well as you should be and you may be upset once again. You can’t bring that into a football game,


What happened the last time State played


Redshirt junior quarterback Russell Wilson runs the ball Saturday against Virginia Tech at CarterFinley Stadium. Wilson had 42 yards of rushing and 392 yards of passing. N.C. State lost to the Hokies, 41-30.

them in preparation for Boston College.” State could not hold on to its 17-point lead at the half and Tech took advantage of State turnovers and missed tackles to pull out a 41-30 comeback win. The Eagles are also coming off of a 31-13 loss that came at the hands of Notre Dame. That game marked the first collegiate start for BC quarterback Chase Rettig. He had five completions for 72 yards and a touchdown. He left the game early due to a n i nju r y and Mike Marscoverta finished t he g a me w i t h 19 3 yards and two interceptions.

After suffering a 41-30 loss to the Virginia Tech Hokies, the Pack is ready to bounce back this week and pick up a win against the Boston College Eagles. “It s t he f irst t ime we’ve suffere d de feat, ver y dejected in the locker room,” coach Tom But O’Brien no m atsaid. “I ter wh ich think they coach Tom O’Brien quarterback understand makes the t hat e ach start for the week is a Eagles, the different challenge and they couldn’t Pack will have pay close attenlet a victory affect what they tion to running back Montel did the week before.

yards on the ground and five touchdowns. Freshman wide receiver Bobby Swigert will also be a huge part of the Golden Eagles’ attack. He caught the Eagles only touchdown pass and reeled in six other receptions for 137 yards against Notre Dame. “I remember their running back, I think setting a record against us,” sophomore Brandan Bishop said. “I’m not sure how many yards he had, I know he had way too many. We got beat pretty bad last year.” The game will also have a high level of significance for O’Brien, who he will face his former school. He served as the head coach of the Eagles from 1996 to 2006. O’Brien’s best coaching jobs came during his later years at Boston College. In 2005 BC led the ACC in total offense and was ranked in the top 25 of the ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ Poll for the entire season. He has never beaten the Eagles. “I’ve never beaten a lot of people. We just [have to] keep working,” O’Brien said.” “It’s [going to] happen someday; hopefully it’s [going to] be this Saturday.”


2009 was a long season full of long afternoons, but the Pack’s trip to Boston was as bad as it got. State lost 52-20 thanks to a once in a lifetime effort by BC running back Montel Harris, who picked up 264 yards and five touchdowns in one of the best rushing efforts in BC history. The Wolfpack answered Boston College’s first score to make it 7-7, but trailed 24-13 at halftime before the wheels fell off over the final 30 minutes. BC scored four second-half touchdowns to hand State its most lopsided defeat of the season.

Players to watch for: N.C. STATE Freshman running back Dean Haynes: The offense was hardly 50-50 run-pass through the first four games of the season, but with steady contributions from Haynes and fellow freshman Mustafa Greene, State was doing just enough to keep defenses honest. But Saturday against VT, with the running game struggling, Wilson was forced to air it out 49 times. He threw for 362 yards, but was picked off three times and completed less than half his passes. Haynes had limited running room, gaining just 27 yards on 12 carries, while Greene picked up 91 on 10 carries. Coaches have said nothing to this effect, but with Greene having outgained Haynes in both rushing and receiving yards on the year, Haynes’ days as the starter could numbered if his backup continues to be more productive. Sophomore safety Earl Wolff: The Pack’s third-leading tackler and one of its anchors in the secondary will play a key role in helping the defense redeem itself after its worst performance of the season against Virginia Tech. State’s tackling against the Hokies allowed a number of long runs and reminded many of the difficulties the defense had in 2009. From his safety position, Wolff has a good chance to make plays in the passing game and help in run support with a front seven eager to swarm BC’s Montel Harris after the game Harris had a year ago.

BOSTON COLLEGE Quarterback Mike Marscovetra: The most extensive action of the sophomore’s career came Saturday in BC’s loss to Notre Dame. Marscovetra is one of three Golden Eagle quarterbacks who have seen time this season, as original starter Dave Shinskie was benched in favor of freshman Chase Rettig before the battle with the Irish. Marscovetra came on early in the second quarter in relief of an injured Rettig and completed 22 of 37 passes for 193 yards, but also threw two interceptions. If State can get BC in third-and-long situations, expect the Pack to apply plenty of pressure to the inexperienced Golden Eagles quarterback, whether it be Rettig or Marscovetra.
