Raleigh, North Carolina
Pullen Park welcomes new business A new cafe had opened up in the newly renovated Pullen Park.
Students speak: tuition increase Students show support and dissent at a meeting discussing possible $330 tuition increase.
Elise Heglar News Editor
After undergoing nearly two years of renovations, Pullen Park has reopened full of improvement, including a new cafe that supports locally produced food. The park has been under construction since December 2009 and the project cost about $6 million to complete. Pullen Park is North Carolina’s first amusement park; it was established in 1887. On Saturday, the park opened for the first time since construction started. Students and Raleigh families alike strolled through the new park where they were able to enjoy updated facilities, including a new climatecontrolled carousel house. In addition to the updates made to original park facilities, a new cafe has been added. Pullen Place Cafe and Catering offers healthy eating options for park visitors that are locally produced. “We’re a cafe located in the park serving locally sourced food at low prices. We want to be a food destination for N.C. State students and the people of Raleigh,” Steve Mangano, one of the Pullen Place founders, said. According to Mangano, providing local food was one of the main priorities of the business. The menu will be seasonal in accordance to what local producers are able to provide. “It’s something that we’re very passionate about. The park is a place where the whole community comes together, so the opportunity to offer locally produced food to the public was too good to pass up,” Mangano said. The menu of the café is very different from standard amusement park fare; while it does include hotdogs and hamburgers, things like hummus and pita, deli sandwiches and salads are also available.

On Saturday, Nov. 19, Pullen Park officially re-opened it doors to the community offering an array of new activity, including a cafe. Pullen Place Cafe, serves local food varying from hummus and sandwiches to burgers and brat wurst. The cafe has gluten free and vegetarian options as well. The cafe will be open daily from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Mangano said that offering healthy spersed around the park. “We’re able to serve a lot of people. options was one of the most important things to the owners. The menu has Storage is really our biggest issue, not a wide variety and a fairly low price so much volume,” Mangano said. Rianne Whittington, freshman in point, with no individual items priced political science, says at over $7. she is excited to visit “ S t u d e nt s c a n the newly updated come by to get somepark since it has conthing quick and then sistently been under return to the park renovation since her and enjoy their day,” arrival at the UniMangano said. versity. While the Pullen “I definitely want Place facilities are to go see it sometime small, Mangano says Steve Mangano, Pullen Place soon.

It is a walk-up service and there visited it before,” Whittington said.

options. “The only options on campus are the dining hall or places like Chickfil-A and Taco Bell, so it’s good to have some healthy options offcampus,” Whittington said. Matt Walker, senior in communications, found it interesting that Pullen Park not only added a cafe, but that it provides so many healthy eating options. “I find it interesting that it’s a healthy food place and not something like a McDonald’s,” Walker said. Walker also said that having a full-service cafe makes Pullen Park stand out as a city park. “I’ve never seen a city park with a cafe. It makes it different and more attractive,” Walker said.
Students made an appearance at the board of directors meeting Friday morning to make a case against the newly proposed tuition increase of $330. The meeting inclined students to come forth with ideas and criticisms of the University budget. Daniel Eckert, junior in computer engineering, explained at the meeting that the University has put an emphasis on research, which is increasing costs and lowering classroom value. “One of the things that I have seen is the difference between research and scholarship from a professional perspective,” Eckert said. “We are asked to continually pay more and more money for an education that’s trending away from a closeness in the classroom.” Senior Class President John Tucker made an appearance at the meeting, explaining that students need to be informed about the cut. With the information delivered through the monthly “HOWL” email, over one hundred students responded for and against the change in tuition. “It was incredible how many students actually supported a tuition increase, but they understood what it was going towards,” Tucker said, “The most common theme for those who were for a tuition increase was an increase in the amount of faculty and staff salary increases.” An increased response from students has been taken well by Student Government, including Chandler Thompson, student body president. Chandler explained that she wanted

Windhover, the University’s literary and art magazine, showcased various types of talent during their second open mic night of the year. The event began with food and patch-painting table for attendees to get involved in the evening artistically. It then continued with the 16 performances from students, faculty and alumni sharing their creative talent; there were both solo and group performances covering a wide range of artistic expression such as poetry, short story readings and musical performances. “There’s such a wide variety of things to do,” Jaimie Harwood, senior in English education, said. Past editions of Windhover were available to look through and see how the publication has changed through the years. The most recent edition was available, as well as information about contributing to the upcoming edition. A critique sheet was available allowing for feedback on different components of the book, as well as a section for new ideas for future publications. “The quality of the book was good,” Jonathan Weeks, junior in human biology, said, “More well produced than I assumed.” The patch-painting table was popular with attendees and seemed to be a hotspot of activity.

We are STATE!
The Ladies in Red female acapella group featured new arrangements of popular music during their annual concert Saturday night. The Ladies in Red have been performing since 1993 and typically have one big show per semester. This semester the “Ladies” were Tricia Artim, Gracie Bell, Tracy Kristin Johnson, Ashley Oskardmay, Chelsea Schwabe, Olivia Springer and Krystal Rodas. They performed their yearly show to a packed theater of onlookers and
supporters. Sponsored by the N.C. State Music Department, the group has a diverse makeup of girls with various singing talents. Though a professional staff supports them, the girls manage themselves and are responsible for the quality of their productions. This year, music directors and members of the group Chelsea Schwabe and Ashley Oskardmay took the ladies in a Top 40 direction, selecting and arranging popular songs and riffs for performances. “[Ashley and I] have been doing collaborative arranging with songs we like and putting a creative spin on them,” Schwabe said. “We [music directors] have a vision for the group

students to be more informed about what is going on with their tuition. “Some students really felt the budget cuts this year, and they communicated that to me in their emails,” Thompson said. Thompson proposed a tuition talk in the Brickyard so that students can voice their concerns openly in a large, popular space for students. She made it clear that tuition information needs to be released and interacted with the student body. “The last thing that I think anyone wants to see happen is another ‘July Surprise,’” Chandler said. Last year a tuition increase was proposed in July, right before school started and while most students were away from the University. The increase

came without warning to students. Chancellor Randy Woodson explained in an email that the Board of Governors determines all tuition changes and that the Board of Trustees recommends tuition to them. “Following this process the BOG authorized universities to consider a one time “catch up” in tuition given the very low tuition we have relative to our peers,” Woodson stated in the email. Woodson explained that among the University’s land grant “peers,” our University has the second lowest tuition; the catch-up in tuition will be a $1,200 increase over five years. Annually, students will see an increase of about $240, the lowest percentage increase proposed by any UNC-System school. “In spite of this the significant reductions have resulted in limited class sections and
much larger class sizes,” Woodson stated in the email. Woodson said that the Board of Trustees would like to see faculty pay raises, an increase in hiring, and continuation of providing “critical financial aid.” Budget cuts and tuition increases have been a theme of the UNC system from the beginning of the recession, problems that all universities are learning to deal with. Eckert said he believes that the problem is where a confused staff is spending the money. “We put a 30 percent increase in enrollment and we want a 15 percent increase in faculty,” Eckert said, “I would encourage us to address the identity crisis that we seem to be having in terms of where the money is being spent, and where the money is coming from.”
for well over an hour. The night consisted of mostly poetry and musical performances with a couple of short story readings. Each performance lasted roughly five minutes. While most of the performers were current students, several of them were returning alumni. For the piano and vocal duo, Michael Valeri, sophomore in chemical engineering and Danielle Souder, sophomore in industrial design, this event was a chance for them to showcase their talents with fellow students. “It’s really cool that there are events like this on campus, we never had an avenue to share our music before,” Souder said. There were performers from various colleges within the University, highlighting the diversity of the event. “Events like this are great for the school,” David Delgado, senior in science education, said.
There were also two acts by international students, both of which were musical performances. Muntazar Monsur, a student from Bangladesh, performed a love song he played on guitar and sang in Bengali, the language of his home country. The other international act was singer and guitar duo Cynthia Noury, senior in communication and Danny Riordan, junior in math. Noury is from Montréal Canada and Riordan from Ireland. The pair performed a Canadian song that had topped the charts in previous years. “It’s really nice to see the artsy side of State,” Riordan said. Tim Reavis, senior in psychology, has performed his poetry at multiple Windhover events in the past. He said he enjoyed this year’s event. “I really liked the feel of this one,” Reavis said.

—where we want to take it —and we’re looking to appeal to a younger crowd and reach out to the N.C. State community.” According to Schwabe, Saturday night’s performance boasted one of the girls’ best arrangements yet. She said their song “Hell on Heels” was a collective harmony that turned out to showcase their best assets and talents. “Each of our parts mattered. Each was an important piece of the song as a whole,” Schwabe said. Group member and sophomore in communications Olivia Springer said she agreed with Schwabe about
the arrangement. “’Hell on Heels’ really fit our voices. It definitely was a very appealing song,” Springer said. Springer said she felt strongly about the group’s “Rolling in the Deep” and “Crazy” mash up. She said it was a vocalintensive song that was fun to perform. Songs that are popular and relatable with the university community are, according to Springer, vital for good performances. “It’s really important, especially for an a cappella group, to give people stuff they’ve heard before but with a twist. That’s what draws people in,” Springer said. Stephen Wrightenberry, senior in mechanical engineering and former member of the Grains of Time, is a fan of the Ladies in Red.

Last week AASAP organized homecoming week. Homecoming week organized school spirit through activities in and around campus and culminated in the N.C. State-Clemson football game Saturday. N.C. State won 37-13
Start to finish; homecoming was a success this year. Whether its free food, shirts, or that dropping of a rival and a top 10, homecoming fired on all cylinders. The student-lead homecoming week was something special, something that should be applauded.
A perfect homecoming
resh off the heels of dropping the Heels and dropping one to Boston College we entered Homecoming Week. We entered into a week of celebration. We entered a week that magnetized the N.C. State family, bringing students, alumni, faculty and the community together all through a football game. Often unrecognized, but possibly one of the most impressive aspects of homecoming week is the student leadership involved. Homecoming Week is organized by the Alumni Association Student Ambassador Program and assisted by other student organizations on campus. Through partnerships with local companies and other groups ASSAP provides all homecoming activities free of charge to students, all they have to do is show up and show

their spirit. AASAP efforts have made homecoming at N.C. State the largest student-led homecoming in the ACC. AASAP started homecoming week with a ‘Kick Off ’ that lived up to the theme ‘Tame the Tigers’. With inflatables, crafts, caricature artists, the circus theme hit home in a great way. Homecoming shirts and pizzas were available free of charge to any students who showed up and while supplies lasted. The success of the event foreshadowed the success of the rest of the week. Throughout the week AASAP fed students through their ‘Wear Red Get Fed’ campaign, an event easy on the eyes and the stomach. Every day in the
brickyard, AASAP partnered with local restaurants to bring food to students wearing at least a handful of red. Food was provided by student favorites such as: Moes, Dominos, and Marco’s. Food flew out of as soon as it was delivered. Generally, within an hour supplies were exhausted, leaving nothing but a sea of red in the brickyard. As school sprit approached its peak, we took to the streets. The parade on Hillsborough Street Friday displayed the creativity and the vigor found at N.C. State. The parade was a sight to behold. Paper-mache tigers were juxtaposed against wolves. Students dressed themselves in tiger costumes and
caged themselves. And as the band marched down the street and the chancellor cruised by a tangible sense of community was solidified for all those spectating. The only thing that stood in the way of a perfect homecoming week were the #7 Clemson Tigers. With the electricity of the week coursing through the veins of everyone in CarterFinely Stadium on Saturday we all knew we were about to see something special; however, what we saw exceeded all expectations. Glennon’s arial assault and our lock-down defense yielded a score that still requires a double take. It was the perfect cap to the most iconic week of the college experience.

The state of television
s you f lip through the channels you are inundated with commercials for cars, cosmetics, restaurants, foods, banks and everything else you ca n drea m of finding in the annals of the well that is the commercial sector. I f you’re Jon Lewis Staff Columnist lucky you happen upon a snippet of actual TV. You’ll find parts of cartoons that remind you of your childhood. Sometimes you come across an old movie that you think you might have liked a long time ago. If you are astute, you might flip to a news channel and catch up on what’s going on in the world. If you keep on surfing, however, you are bound to find yourself confronted by the demons of horrendous TV which few manage to escape. A place where the domestic disputes between trashy men and women are celebrated and the housewives of every city in America are in a constant catfight for pride that rivals the tension found between the gangs of LA, a place where Bridezillas torment the lives of everyone around them in an effort to establish their dominance as Queen of the
Universe. This dark world of ‘reality’ television has been poisoning the minds of our youth for far too long. On MTV, a network that is supposedly about music, there is a show called 16 And Pregnant. The first time I heard the name of the show, I knew that nothing good would ever be seen. As I do before everything I write, I did some research which in this case was to actually subject myself to the show and confirm my original thoughts. Making it through the whole episode took more will power than I had myself. I actually had to go and find Dr. Ludovico and ask him for the machine that he used to cure Alex of his violent tendencies just so I could make it through. Watching teen pregnancy and irresponsibility being celebrated instead of reprimanded is infuriating to think about. Having a child is no light matter and the show completely fails to represent that. When TV makes it look so easy to have a child while still in high school, it’s no surprise that the United States has a higher rate of teen pregnancy than any other developed nation in the world. Despicable attitudes and poor world outlooks also have found a footing in ‘real’ TV. Shows that seem to be about cakes actually focus on the drama between the chefs and a show about wedding dresses is actually subjugating us to the

horrible people trying on the dresses. While watching Say Yes to the Dress, I didn’t know what to expect. Maybe some silly garbage about what it’s like to make wedding dresses and dealing with girls getting married. Instead, I realized that it was all about shallow divas not getting along with their moms. I believe that weddings are about getting to be with the person you love for the rest of your life. Turns out I was wrong. These girls know that if they don’t get the perfect dress, their whole wedding will be ruined, despite the fact that the person they want to spend the rest of their life with is patiently waiting for them no matter what they wear. What a pitiful sentiment to broadcast to women everywhere. The more I watch the more crap I see. TLC, MTV, TruTV have been beaten to death years ago and networks like the History Channel, Discovery, and the SyFy channel are in a quick spiral toward the ground. Why don’t we stop watching these terrible shows and reclaim the glory that our American Culture is entitled to? Send Jon Lewis your thoughts on the state of television to email@example.com.

Tips for safe preparation of Turkey for thanksgiving : •
• • •
Buy a turkey, with its guts removed, 2-3 days in advance of Thanksgiving feast, from a reliable source. Refrigerate it at 40oF or below. Thaw the turkey in cold water and never thaw it outside, exposing it to a variety of bacteria. Wash the turkey thoroughly, restricting the spray of water to a limited area. Sanitize the area with hot water after washing the turkey. Cook the turkey at a very high temperature, in order to kill the bacteria, if any. Stuff it carefully and roast it, making your turkey ‘Ready-to-eat’ and enjoy the splendid Thanksgiving meal.
sprayed to other areas of the kitchen. Even if the bacterial growth on the turkey is cleared, it can settle on some other media such as cooking utensils or vegetables.” Once the turkey is roasted, stuffed and becomes a part of the meal, people have the tendency to keep the leftovers outside. However, this can lead to further damage of the cooked turkey and make it unfit for consumption. “The meat should be cut off the bone and stored in ziplock bags in the refrigerator,” Chapman said. “This can prevent the growth of pathogenic microbes on the leftover turkey and it can be consumed later.” “There are always bacteria, both pathogenic and helpful, staying and dividing around us, continuously,” Hassan said. “Everyone has to be cautious throughout, wash hands often and restrict ourselves from getting infected from them.”

E. coli related illnesses raise health concerns

In the case of the State Fair, this difference was the animal show. After the general source of E. Coli is recognized, investigators then go and test for E. coli at the location, in this case the animal show. According to Kathariou, every form of E. coli has a fingerprint, which is used to confirm that the strain found on location has the same genetic makeup as the one that caused victims to become ill. According to Hassan, the State Fair presents the problem of children touching animals, not washing their hands, then consuming food, effectively providing a direct, “fecal-oral route”. Although only 27 people were affected by E. coli from the State Fair, according to Chapman, there were many more people that came in contact with the bacteria. “We still don’t know why some people are infected while others are not”, Kathariou said. With the previous State Fair E. coli outbreak, according to Hassan, the State Fair made some improvements, putting out disinfecting towels for the public to use. However, the risk will never be zero, according to Kathariou, at a place like the State Fair.

A student walks by the gum-covered wall of Dan Allen tunnel. The tradition of sticking gum to the wall has endured for over two decades.
Chewing over a sticky situation The history and debate over the gum wall provoke artistic thought and maintenance controversy. Katie Sanders Staff Writer
Passing by the Dan Allen Drive gum wall, one is confronted with the issue of whether the display of prechewed globs is art or an eye sore. “It’s certainly an expression. I don’t know what they’re trying to say, but it’s interesting,” Taylor Sams, a freshman in statistics, said. The constantly morphing mass of pre-masticated mush resides on the walls of the tunnel under the train tracks on Dan Allen Drive. It’s exceptional, to say the least. And N.C. State considers it one of the artistic landmarks on campus. “It’s somewhat of an icon as far as campus is concerned,” Kyle Burns, a freshman in political science, said. He said he wasn’t a huge fan of the gum, but he did think it added character to the University.
“I bet UNC doesn’t have anything like it,” Jaclyn Smith, a freshman in polymer and color chemistry, said. Nobody really knows how the gum wall came to be or why it was first allowed to exist. There isn’t any recorded initiating event or reason for the tradition. “This was something that just sort of evolved; people started doing it and others started contributing to it,” Jack Colby, assistant vice chancellor for Facilities Operations, said. But now that it exists, Facilities allows it to grow in the name of tradition, though it occasionally cleans it to keep it from getting out of hand. Even so, it’s cleaned usually only when graffiti becomes a problem, according Bud Brannock, Paint Shop supervisor. “It’s because of the graffiti, not because of the gum,” Brannock said. Tradition trumps sour judgments, according to Colby. “Periodically if it gets to be too much, [our grounds crew] will go and clean it off, and then everybody starts the process over again,” Colby said.
“There’s no policy or anything else associated with it, it’s just one of those unique things about N.C. State’s campus, like the Free Expression Tunnel.” Even some longtime Facilities staff don’t remember a time before the gum wall existed and plenty of students can supply dates to prove that it’s been here at least 20 years. “I remember talking to my dad about it,” Andrew Finegin, a sophomore in mechanical engineering, said. “And my dad went here - he graduated in ’84 - and he said it was still here when he was here, so it’s been here for a while.” Finegin found the wall gross, but rather humorous. While it is a tradition, students debate the actual value of the wall. A few of them find it repulsive and unsanitary. “Personally, I think it’s pretty unattractive, pretty disgusting—like a stain on our campus,” Zachary Cade, a junior in environment technology and recourse management, said. He advocates getting rid of the wall. “I think it’s absolutely disgusting,” Sams said in agree-

ment with Cade. “It can stay as long as it doesn’t get absolutely repulsive with stuff falling off on you.” However, other students find it quirky and endearing. “I think it is a valuable form of street art,” Garrett Zafudo, a freshman in English, said. “The first time I saw it I actually thought there were a whole bunch of gems on the wall and then I saw it was gum, but still, it’s pretty cool.” “I like the big baseball mounds of gum that are on there sometimes,” Andy Joslin, a sophomore in computer science, said. Other gum walls include one in Seattle, the Pike Place Market Gum Wall and one in California named Gum Ally, but their histories are muddy too. “It’s fairly unusual—I’ve never seen anything like it anywhere else,” Colby said.

Students experience a night in the cold “A Night without a Home” gives students the chance to experience the struggle of the homeless.
National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week
As the temperature outside drops, thermostat temperatures inside are being turned up. Imagine not having any heat at all though. Imagine not even having a roof over your head. For many people, this is a reality. An estimated 3.5 million Americans experience homelessness every year. Because, homelessness is so prevalent and apart of the norm, it is often overlooked and not acknowledged. As National Homeless and Hunger Awareness Week is being observed, the Baccalaureate Student Social Work Association is proactively participating in creating awareness both on N.C. State’s campus and in the community. Students in BSSWA wanted not only to raise awareness, but also gain first hand experience to help them work better within their field. “As a social work major, it’s important to understand the homeless client population and their struggles to effectively serve them as a social worker,” Amir Hunter, senior in social work, said. This year marks BSSWA’s first time participating in National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. In promoting awareness for this national endeavor to end hunger and homelessness, BSSWA hosted programs each night for students to attend. Monday’s movie night was a

viewing of The Soloist, a story about a musically gifted homeless man, who is discovered by a journalist who tries to help him get his life back on track. Tuesday’s event was an educational forum with one of N.C. State’s own instructors from the department of social work Susie Barnes as the speaker. On Wednesday, a “Stone Soup Dinner” was hosted at White Memorial Presbyterian Church. BSSWA’s biggest event was ‘A Night without a Home’. The event created a simulation of homelessness for students to spend the night sleeping in a cardboard box. Around 7 p.m. students showed up layered in coats, hats, gloves, and scarves to set up their cardboard abode for the night. “A Night without a Home,” is intended to give students a sense of the life and difficulties homeless people experience everyday. “Although a single night

BSSWA, along with thousands of other groups and organizations, host events similar to ‘A Night without a Home’ each year. All across the country, advocates participate in National
Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week to help get communities involved. The National Coalition for the Homeless, co-sponsors of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, has created a guide that is available online, of different ideas and activities for communities to plan to help raise awareness and support. Although National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week is only once a year, BSSWA will continue to serve and help raise awareness for the homeless and hungry population.

Vanderbilt defeats N.C. State 86-79. Staff Report N.C. State (3-1, 0-0 ACC) were handed their first loss of the season when they lost to No. 20 Vanderbilt (3-1, 0-0 SEC) 86-79 in the first round of the TicketCity Legends Classic in the Izod Center in New Jersey. The game also marked the return of sophomore forward C.J. Leslie to the team, who had missed the first three games of the season. Leslie played like he had never been away as one of the star performers for the Wolfpack, scoring 20 points and shot 7-of-9 as State gave a stern test to the team that had a pre-season ranking of as high as No. 7. Junior for ward R ichard Howell also had a big game as he scored 16 points and had a team leading nine rebounds,

along with sophomore guard Lorenzo Brown, who had 13 points for the night, put up a stiff resilience against the Commodores. However, it proved to be too little for the Pack as Coach Mark Gottfried got his first taste of defeat since taking over. State started the game without junior forward and threepoint specialist Scott Wood, who was out with a sprained ankle, which handed freshman forward Tyler Harris his first start in his young career in the Wolfpack colors, as he had seven points and six rebounds. Vanderbilt guard John Jenkins put on his best performance of the night as he scored 28 points, 20 of which came in the first half and was responsible for four of the nine scores made from downtown by the Commodores. State twice took the lead when redshirt senior guard Alex Johnson shot for three
with the Wolfpack down 64-63 in the second half, and again when junior center DeShawn Painter scored in the paint with the Pack trailing 76-75 with 2:43 to go. However, he failed to capitalize on both opportunities as Leslie was forced to sit out for the last six minutes due to leg cramps. From that point on it was all Vanderbilt as Jenkin’s fourth three-pointer of the game gave them an unassailable 81-77 lead. Vanderbilt ended shooting 52 percent, compared to the 50 by the Pack with the threepoint shooting proving to be the major difference between the two sides as State shot 4-of9 while the Commodores made 9-of-25. State next takes on Texas Monday at 6:30 p.m. in their final game in the Legends Classic at the Izod Center in New Jersey.
ally be expected to storm the field. It’s a tradition in college football unlike any other - major upsets and monumental victories end with a massive gathering of students, players, coaches, media and anyone else who can find their way on to the field. Put together any argument or compromise you would like, but it is simply illogical to allow State students to rush the field in the same fashion as Virginia did earlier this year against Georgia Tech or the same as when the Ramblin’ Wreck handed Clemson its first loss of the year several weeks later. The reason is exactly the same as to why Carter-Finley’s stands are the closest to the field in the ACC conference. It’s the same for why Oklahoma State has a strict rushing the field policy in place when the scene
the Pack up 37-6. While the victory is State’s sixth of the year, Manning said he compares next week’s game at home against Maryland to a different type of playoff. “I treat these games like high school playoffs,” Manning said. “It’s win or go home for us right now, so that’s the mentality we’re playing with.” O’Brien echoed Manning’s thoughts toward the matchup with the Terrapins and said his players still have some making up to do in his mind.
“I told them tonight, I’m still mad at them for losing the last one [at Boston College],” O’Brien said. “I’m not going to forget that one. The only way for them to make that up is to beat Maryland.” In the final moments before the two teams met on the field to shake hands, a few players dumped a cooler full of Gatorade on O’Brien. He said he felt the shower was a bit premature. “They better save that until a bowl game,” O’Brien said. “Until we’re done. Until we win.”

reverses and the Pokes play home games at Boone Pickens Stadium. The walls of both stadiums are high to enhance spectator viewing and to prevent fan interference. You may have confidence in your personal abilities to jump down sections seven and eight at Carter-Finley, but NCSU would probably rather not have thousands of 18-22 year olds piling on top of each other. Even after the game ended and some Pack players jumped into the student section, they struggled to pull themselves up to be congratulated. If our football players have any issues whatsoever getting up, maybe we should choose the alma mater over some type of law suit. And hey, I wanted to storm the field Saturday night before the game even started, but I also think driving 85 mph on the Beltline is fully acceptable. Unfortunately, that’s illegal and the cops agree. Why can Iowa State, Baylor and Virginia rush the field? It’s not exactly an idea wrapped in protective cellophane, but the whole pro-
cess is safer and more practical. The vast majority of Iowa State students stand in sections 28-32 at Jack Trice Stadium, and the clearing wall to get on to the field is approximately five to six feet tall. At Baylor, students sit directly behind the opposing team’s bench, as well as the adjacent corner of the end zone. The barrier to get onto the field is a standard bleacher railing with several stairs leading to the ground. At Virginia, students and fans simply run on to the field at Scott Stadium from a hill. Although they are just two of the most recent examples in college football, the majority of FBS teams have student sections with legitimate access to the field. We don’t, and not getting to storm the field is a direct effect of the limited access. The views on whether students can rush the field will always vary at any institution, particularly one where field access is complicated. Either way, it’s one of the best issues State football will ever have.
first two sets. “We were playing better and a lot more connected as a team in the Virginia match and at Virginia Tech we were playing as a bunch of individuals.” Freshman Dariyan Hopper led the Pack in kills with 19. Bunn believed that his team wasn’t completely focused in its second match. “We just weren’t locked in against Virginia Tech,” Bunn said. “We started of ok, they weren’t playing well and we didn’t take advantage of that.”
According to Wood, she believes that State did not play to its expectations. “I don’t think Virginia Tech is better than UVA, but also we played more cohesive as a team against UVA versus that Virginia Tech game,” Wood said. “We talked about playing more as individuals. That was one of the main differences.”

Turnovers lead to upset over Clemson
Women’s basketball tops TCU
Pack defense sets tone for defense as it keeps bowl hopes alive.
The N.C. State women’s basketball team (3-0) defeated TCU (1-3), 85-79, on Sunday at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum. Sophomore forward Kody Burke put up the third double-double of her career with 15 points and 13 rebounds. Senior forward Bonae Holston led the team in scoring with 17 points. Sophomore guard Myisha Goodwin-Coleman and freshman guard Krystal Barret also put up 15 points. The Pack returns to home play on Wednesday against Jacksonville at 7 p.m. at Reynolds Coliseum.

When fans left CarterFinley Stadium Saturday afternoon, they were given a treat that not many expected. Even Coach Tom O’Brien said he was shocked at the outcome. “I really have no explanation for what just happened,” O’Brien said with a smirk when he first addressed media members in the Murphy Center. After scoring just 23 points in a span of three games, the Wolfpack used a 27-point second quarter to defeat the No. 7 Clemson Tigers. N.C. State (6-5 overall, 3-4 ACC) used an array of defensive and offensive stars to tame the Tigers (9-2, 6-2) as it was able to pull out a 37-13 win to keep its bowl hopes alive. The win was not only the first victory against a top10 team for O’Brien, but also the first win against Clemson—a losing streak that stretched back to 2003. O’Brien said he was impressed with the way the defense played throughout the game, but, more importantly, how it set up the offense in the second quarter. “I think they did a great job,” O’Brien said. “Our de-

man on the defense, it was Manning. The linebacker finished the game with 3.5 tackles for loss, a forced fumble and recovered the fumble that Norman forced in Clemson territory. O’Brien said that Manning’s performance was thanks, in large part, to the way the defensive line played. “Once we got our guys up front back, [Manning] and [Audie] Cole can make plays,”
O’Brien said. “[Manning]’s the most experienced guy we have at that position. He’s playing at a very high level, but I still think it comes back to the guys up front that are allowing him to make those plays.” The story offensively for the Pack was the resurgent play of redshirt junior Mike Glennon.

Volleyball split its weekend in the state of Virginia by defeating Virginia 3-1 and dropping its match to Virginia Tech, 2-3. The Pack improved its record to 20-12. It is the first time State has had a 20-win season since 1996. In its first match against the Cavaliers, the Pack won its first, third and final sets of the match 25-18, 25-15 and 25-23.

sacks for a total of 11 yards lost and a forced fumble, the first of his career. The forced fumble on a sack gave State the ball at the Clemson six-yard line. Norman said the forced fumble was somewhat of a milestone for him in his career. “That was my first sack fumble on the season,” Norman said with a huge smile. “It was a big deal for me. I was just really excited.” If any player trumped Nor-

fense was able to create good field position for our offense to start with, and it’s a lot easier when [the offense] gets some touchdowns out of it too.” Though the Pack offense put up 27 points in the second quarter, the defense, led by junior linebacker Terrell Manning and redshirt freshman defensive end Art Norman, put State in Clemson territory on three of the five scoring drives. Norman finished with 2.5

its second set 20-25. Senior Margaret Salata led the team in kills with 16. Senior Luciana Shafer followed Salata’s total with 12. Junior Megan Cyr led the Pack in assists with 47 for the match. According to Head Coach Bryan Bunn, Salata has come a long way in her development all year. “She’s just been fantastic this year,” Bunn said. “We’ve always been able to count on her to get a kill when we needed it. She’s come a long way since that night she got kicked out the gym. She’s worked hard to become a very different player.” Senior Kelly Wood led the team on the defensive end with 23 digs and freshman Alston Kearns finished with 16.

According Bunn, the Pack competed very well in its match. “We fought hard the first game against UVA,” Bunn said. “We came out and we were really ready to go. We competed in the three sets, they jumped out on us, and then we rebounded. They played well again but we fought through the fourth. Everybody played pretty solid.” Its second match with the Hokies was a comeback win for Virginia Tech. The Pack won its first two sets 25-22 and 26-24. From that point on State could not take a match and dropped its final three sets of the match 21-25, 24-26, and 11-15. The

as time expired. In a slightly bizarre scene, N.C. State’s clutch 37-13 rout of No. 7 Clemson finished with threats of zip-tie hand cuffs, pepper spray and the traditional playing of the alma mater. Although treating the student section like animals in captivity is probably an exorbitant measure, as long as State plays at Carter-Finley, Wolfpack students can not and should not have the opportunity to rush the field. Don’t get me wrong - it’s extremely frustrating to count 53 safety officers surrounding the field barely midway through the fourth quarter, especially when under normal circumstances students would virtu-
