Faculty union begins negotiations Talks between AAUP and UC will focus on switch to semesters, pending budget cuts Amanda Woodruff the news record

get to talking Steve Howe, president of UC’s AAUP chapter, is working to retool the contract. briefs talk with espn’s kevin connors

The largest faculty union at the University of Cincinnati will begin contract negotiation talks this week. The three-year contract between the university and American Association of University Professors expires June 30. Converting from quarters to semesters will require UC administrators and faculty to further negotiate certain terms, due to the extensive work needed to accommodate the changes. “Normally the contracts are three years and if this contract is written for three years and goes into effect, it will cross over from quarters to semesters,” said Steven Howe, president of UC’s AAUP chapter and head of the psychology department. “Since there’s so much in the contract that is specific to quarters the contract is going to have to be greatly expanded to have language about the quarter system and language about the

semester system.” One possibility is a two-year contract, but the length of the contract is subject to negotiation, Howe said. An item that will greatly affect the negotiations is a pending budget cut. The university took an 8 percent budget cut during the 2009-10 academic year. The following year’s cut will be at least 8 percent, said Greg Hand, university spokesperson. The state appropriates funds for public universities under a two-year agreement. During the first year, the state can give one amount of money to the university and a different amount during the second year. “But it’s not ironclad,” Hand said. The federal government provided Ohio with stimulus funds for higher education, but those funds are projected to run out in June 2011, Hand said. “I’m guessing that next year’s budget cut will feel bigger than this year’s,” Howe said. “It’s

really challenging to do financial planning in a system where some of the key elements of the budgets are set by negotiation.” Increased faculty compensation is one topic scheduled for the upcoming negotiation. The timing of the discussion paired with the potential of tuition increase for the 2010-11 academic year might appear planned to people outside either group. “Believe it or not, that’s a coincidence,” Hand said. Despite possible parallels stemming from the budget cut to a possible tuition increase or discussion of increased faculty compensation, the issues are separate. “This is an enormously tough environment and the affordability to higher education in Ohio is a great concern to everybody,” Howe said. There are three areas driving the costs of higher education instruction, which

esearch at the University of Cincinnati is bringing in the green from all over the country. At the end of the 2009-10 fiscal year, the university reported bringing in more than $238 million. Its affiliates, such as Shriners Hospital for Children and the Cincinnati Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Centers, garnered $140 million, for a total of $378 million in UC’s name, despite an economic recession. Since 2008, the total amount of research funding awareded to UC increased by $25 million, according to UC Research’s “Report on Research 2009.” And since 2000, the total amount has almost doubled. Additionally, the help of the economic stimulus package’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act gives UC a boost of 22 percent more than the same time last year. Even without funds from the ARRA, funding is up 4 percent over the same time in 2009, said Sandra Degen, vice president for research at UC. The two-year grant awards $33.7 million in fiscal year 2010-11 and $44.8 million the following year.

There is, however, a matter of labels that keeps the university from getting more money: Federal land-grant universities (establishments on plots of land “granted” to a state by the government) are institutions tasked with boosting research in things like agriculture and engineering with the aid of state funding. The Ohio State University, the only higher education establishment with the title land-grant institution in the state has exclusive rights to some funds set aside by the state for land-grant universities and colleges. Currently, UC is unofficially labeled as an urban research institute. “It’s really just a matter of politics,” said Nelson Horseman, a professor of molecular and cell physiology. “But it’s not as though OSU is taking our money.” The College of Medicine, where Horseman works, raked in more than $130 million and accounted for approximately 55 percent of UC-exclusive sponsored research. It isn’t so much a matter of competition. Without the land-grant designation, UC does not qualify for certain portions of state funding. Although an express reason for why certain

things get funded doesn’t exist, federal stimulus money as well as a growing reputation for UC’s creditable research at the National Institutes of Health play key roles in the future. The NIH ranked in as top contributor for research, granting approximately $105 million, Degen said. “There are state budgets and budget cuts to take into account,” Degen said. “It just makes it harder for UC — but with all this new money, it can’t hurt.”

Students already at UC are grandfathered into the program and can finish their degree. Students at Cincinnati State will not be able to continue the program at UC. Bill Earley, a third-year student in the culinology program, will earn his degree, but is frustrated with the decision. “Culinology is an exclusive degree that only a few universities offer and that made UC unique,” Earley said. “This is the future for chefs — learning the science behind the food.” The program had classes specifically created for culinology, said Drew Schoelle, a recent graduate of the program. “The people that are graduating are receiving excellent jobs and doing well even in the hard economy,” Schoelle said. “There are a wide range of jobs that you can get with this degree. It lessens the value of my degree when the program is getting canceled.” The program also teaches students how food is supposed to taste and how to develop a strong relationship with employers. “I feel that the program is key to product development to the nation in general as far as food goes,” said Lisa Sanders, a culinology

professor at UC. “It’s a shame the university hasn’t supported the program.” Sanders, who is also employed for the Women in Flavors and Fragrance Commerce in Cincinnati, is worried how the program closure will affect the business. “It affects the future of my company,” said Sanders. “We already hired two students from the program and we would like to hire more in the future.” The culinology program is ranked in the top 10 in the United States in the Research Chefs Association. In the last three years, culinology students have placed first twice and second once in the National Culinology competition, which pitted UC against various other colleges. Cincinnati is considered the flavor capital of the United States and UC just didn’t market the program enough, Schoelle said. “I worked really hard for this program and I feel like it was all for nothing,” he said. Calls to Greg Hand, university spokesperson, were not answered as of press time.

Despite national accreditation, the University of Cincinnati is eliminating the culinology program in the College of Applied Sciences. The program will be axed at the end of the 2009-10 school year with only current UC students finishing the program. The culinology program is the first program of its kind in Ohio and third in the United States. Culinology students begin their schooling at Cincinnati State, where they learn all aspects of the food preparation process to prepare them for work in hotels, clubs, restaurants and catering. With the pathway partnership, students graduate with their associate degree from Cincinnati State, then come to UC for their remaining two years. Spring quarter serves as the final term for culinology. Current enrollment in the university’s program is approximately 48 students — the university mandates at least 250 students must be in the program to exist.

Peace Corps celebrates 49th birthday

Food companies in hot water for misleading labels Let’s face it: if you think mini ice cream bites are healthy and nutritious, you’re just not paying attention. But when it comes to other grocery store staples the difference between healthy eats and bad-foryou treats isn’t always so clear. And as it turns out, it’s not entirely our fault. On Wednesday, the FDA announced their distribution of 17 warning letters to processed food manufacturers for misleading front-of-pack labels and (bogus) health claims. The letters told the companies they are in violation of FDA regulated health-specific language and labeling. The strongly worded letters also state a failure to comply in the timely removal of the offending assertions from packages will result in legal action. What is shaping up to be the largest label crackdown in FDA history comes on the heels of the much talked about initial smack down of General Mills Cheerios in May 2009. Cheerios was reprimanded for their flagrant front-of-package claim that the cereal was clinically proven to lower your cholesterol by 4 percent in 6 weeks time. The FDA stated in their warning letter to Ken Powell, General Mills’ CEO, that such language, claims and promotion “cause it to be a drug because the product is intended for use in the prevention, mitigation and treatment of disease.” Or at least that’s how consumers may misconstrue it. It is these same sorts of claims and misleading advertising that have now found 16 other companies in the hot seat. The companies range from Nestle (for their Juicy Juice products), to Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream, to Gorton’s Inc. (makers of Gorton’s Fish Fillets) and even POM Wonderful, a company and brand of pomegranate juice. The products in question range from the seemingly benign — pomegranate juice — to the more obvious saturated fat-filled ice cream snacks. But innocent in appearance or not, the last place we need any sort of “creative deception” is when it comes to knowing exactly what it is we’re feeding ourselves, much less children. With labels that boast “cholesterol-lowering benefits” and “100 percent juice,” at first glance, it would appear what we’re putting in our carts is health food, when in fact it’s still just over processed junk with halftruths scrawled upon their brightly colored cartons. What may seem like harmless adjectives, such as “all natural,” or healthy food ingredient buzzwords and phrases like, “made with whole grain” and “real fruit,” actually mean something and what they mean is not accurately reflected in the product you’re consuming. The FDA (for the most part) has rigid definitions, facts, figures and percentages as to what a food item must or must not contain to be able to be labeled as such. But more often than not, companies are ignoring those definitions when it comes to what makes it into the package design. The FDA’s announcement of their plan to get tough on companies who ignore regulations or employ deceptive labeling language came just one day after they released the results of a nationwide survey of more than 2,500 adults. The survey found for the first time ever, more half of adults proclaim they “often” read the label of a processed food upon first purchase. The same survey also found many consumers were skeptical of claims on the front of the packages like “low fat” and “high fiber.” Some are celebrating the survey results as proof of the trend of increased food awareness and as a small victory on the road to slimming America’s waistline; not to mention the newfound apparent shrewdness, intelligent skepticism and vigilance by consumers when evaluating health claims on food packages. What’s not quite clear though is whether the same adults who “read” the labels know exactly what they’re looking for nutritionally and exactly what it all means in the broader sense of the healthfulness of what they buy. But hopefully in time — with the newer, tougher FDA cracking down to keep the food industry honest — the true nutritional value of what we eat will become all the more clear.

Seventy years ago, John F. Kennedy challenged students at the University of Michigan to devote two years of their lives to help people in third world countries. Since then, the international volunteer association known as the Peace Corps has contributed to decades of service traveling overseas to promote world peace and friendship, celebrating its 49th anniversary this year. The University of Cincinnati celebrated by hosting its annual Peace Corps Week, where Peace Corps alumni scheduled several events for the UC community, including a presentation featuring Ohio Congressman Steve Driehaus, a former Peace Corps volunteer. “Every year, we usually go out into the community and engage listeners,” said Johanna Loye, associate professor of the Design, Architecture, Art and Planning college and coordinator of the university’s Peace Corps graduate programs. “This is the year we did something really different.” Students enrolled in the two special Peace Corps graduate programs offered under UC’s school of planning, Master’s International and Fellows/USA, were part of a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV) Speaker Panel at the

two-year Peace Corps assignment and a final year in Cincinnati. The two graduate programs are only offered at a handful of universities across the country, and UC is the only university in Ohio to offer both. The Peace Corps provides both tangible benefits such as career placement help and a stipend to help the transition upon returning home and a life-defining leadership experience. The Peace Corps isn’t a vacation; it is life-altering to most volunteers who spend many years overseas and return home after service. Sometimes it changes everything about their lifestyle. “You come back and you’re tolerant of differences, whether it be transportation, housing or public space,” Looye said. ‘You’re attuned to differences between cultures.” The purpose of Peace Corps Week is to carry out the third goal of the Peace Corps — to strengthen Americans’ understanding about the world and its various peoples and cultures. Hosting the event gives volunteers the chance to reflect on their life in the Peace Corps while educating the community about the Peace Corps and their overseas experience. “They’ve lived and breathed it,” Looye said. “They know what it’s like to be the odd man out.”

Cincinnati’s got talent

Participants of weekend’s METRO/CWEST talent show dazzle judges Alie clarridge the news record

Mardi Gras-themed decorations adorned the Great Hall in Tangeman University Center Friday, March 5. Purple and yellow balloons and multi-colored streamers along with sparkling decorated masks covered the walls from the front door to the stage. The Men of METRO and Cincinnati Women in Excellence and Spirit Together (CWEST) joined forces with the Programs and Activities Council to create a talent show that featured a diverse and energetic group of contestants and an established comedian for a host that both dazzled the crowd and helped raise money for William Edward Burghardt DuBois Academy. Sponsors of the talent show sat behind tables of merchandise and giveaways in the back of the room, while the Men of METRO and its sister organization Women of CWEST greeted people at the door with smiles, Mardi Gras beads dangling from their arms. They asked for a $1 donation per necklace “The group has done a great job at providing an entire experience, not just getting acts and a comedian,” said Ryan Pontsler, president of Men of METRO. “They have done a great job at decorating and drumming up support for the student body.”

Many students look forward to the annual talent show, which is approaching its 50th anniversary. “It’s a tradition. I invited two people,” said ToQuisha Hutchinson, a third-year secondary education student. Hutchinson said she was looking forward to the show being in TUC this year. The show was in Zimmer Hall last year. There were 12 acts as well as a dance off by the Men of METRO and Women of CWEST. The diversity of the performances ranged from acoustic, jazz, rap and hip-hop music as well as various kinds of dance: Bollywood, Irish, Hip-Hop and Step, to name a few. PAC provided the host of the show, Tim Young, who has appeared on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” as well as “Tough Crowd” with Colin Quinn. “That was a really talented talent show. Everybody was really solid,” Young said. “Except for the guys in Men of METRO. They were not exactly in sync.” He joked while pointing at Kyle Snider, the vice president of Men of METRO and the talent show co-chair. The Men of METRO, although entertaining, were defeated in the dance off with the Women of CWEST whose song choices had the audience doing everything from singing to “Jump On It” and dancing to “The Macarena.”

A common theme for the performers was asking for crowd participation and as the night progressed and more people arrived, they merrily cheered and danced along. Several performers left the stage and actually interacted with the crowd. One of the members from the two-man group Dwali, distributed flowers while rapping. Another performer, vocalist Talisha Daniels, danced with an audience member in the aSisle. After the last act of the night — one of two routines by the DuBois Step Team — the three judges made their decision and left it up to Young to announce the first and second place winners. Second place and winner of $100 was the UC Breakers. The group was full of vigor and spun around the stage taking turns so that each member had a chance to dance. First place and winner of $300 was the International Dance Team, a sprightly, Bollywood Fusion team with their first performance as a student group. “The audience was very excited and energetic, they energized us,” said, Rohan Hemani, one of the team members who has been practicing the traditional Indian dance since he was 5 years old. With more than 800 audience members, donations for the W.E.B. DuBois Academy and an entertaining and friendly environment, this year’s METRO/CWEST talent show was a huge success.

Guerrilla holds straight bar hostage JAYNA BARKER the news record

queer dance party Two CGQB partygoers celebrating on the dance floor.

On the first Friday of each month, a popular “straight and narrow” bar is flash mobbed unexpectedly, held hostage and transformed into a queer-friendly bar for one night. The Cincinnati Guerrilla Queer Bar hops from bar to bar each month, offering partygoers no cover, discounted drinks and live queer music hosted by their very own disc jockey. CGQB’s goal is to encourage its members to go to bars where they normally might not feel comfortable or safe, and to make the area’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer population more visible. This year, the group celebrated its one-year anniversary Friday, March 5, at the Lodge Bar at 35 E. Seventh St., downtown

where the first event for CGQB took place. The mystery locations of the surprise events aren’t confirmed until usually the first Friday of the month ­— the same day of the event. “There’s about a group of 40 of us altogether,” said Kelly Carr, Xavier alum and co-organizer of CGQB. “Each of us takes on a different month.” March was Carr’s month to organize the event and choose the unsuspecting straight bar. CGQB takes over a different bar all across the Queen City and surrounding areas in Kentucky with typically a different theme, depending on the bar, Carr said. Friday’s theme was “Hunting For Love.” Partygoers were asked to wear flannel, camouflage and hunting orange clothing and were offered extra imaginary CGQB

CGQB hosts other events as well, such as “queer speed dating” and a “Stop AIDS” gala. CGQB also participated in a day of silent protest against hatred and inaction at UC Nov. 10, 2009. CGQB events have drawn more than 1,000 people in the past 12 months. CGQB is more than just a series of bar takeovers by a flash mob group; it’s a constant effort to incorporate change and promote rights for LGBTQ citizens. “We want stronger queer visibility and a decrease of homophobia — equal rights for everyone,” Carr said.

Cincy music scene grows day by day Cincinnati’s local music scene is growing at an exceptional rate. No matter what genre you’re partial to, there is someone in town playing what you like to hear. It’s a great time to be a music fan in the Queen City. But sadly, many still believe that our local music scene is on life support. I’ve heard it all before; lack of local artists, venues that don’t care about the artist and unsupportive environments in general. All the excuses that have been presented against Cincinnati have been around for years. But below are my choices for the top five local acts that will revitalize Cincinnati’s music scene (in no particular order) and return it to national prominence. The Reanimated: These horror punk pioneers are arguably the biggest punk act in Cincinnati. With songs about werewolves, zombies and all manners of nerdy wonderment, these punk rockers will continue carrying the flag of their genre. And they are gaining fans with every show they play. Banderas: These sleaze rockers have one of Cincinnati’s most electric live shows. Mixing sleaze, punk, rock, rockabilly and a dash of sex, Banderas plays a show that can’t be predicted. But when the band has songs as addictive and refreshing as Banderas, you’re more than willing to deal with whatever it is they throw at you. Bonus points must be issued to a band that dresses like the Justice League for their most recent Halloween show. Foxy Shazam: Possibly the most successful local act on this list, Foxy is a potent mixture of incredible writing, a strong ear for the hook and a bat shit insane live performance. Vocalist Eric Nally is known to light and then eat a cigarette during their set. And that is just a taste of Nally’s onstage exploits. Foxy’s show most definitely must be seen to be believed. 500 Miles to Memphis: Fueled by vocalist’s Ryan Malott’s soulful and pained lyrics, 500’s sound is a potent mix of punk and country. Each song is a revelation, giving a peek into Malott’s painful but hopeful world. Add in some of the most talented musicians on the instrumentation and you’ve got a potent one-two punch that is hard to resist by anyone. De Los Muertos: Although the band is going through a restructure (including a possible name change), Veronica Grim’s vocals and fiery stage presence will continue to draw in the fans. Try to fight the fire and you’ll lose. The potent mix of insatiable hooks and exceptional lyrics makes for a hard concoction to deny for any music aficionado. And do you know the best part of this list? That would be the fact that many of you readers are upset by it. You may be thinking, ‘Why didn’t you mention band X or group Y?’ Surely, their skill/stage presence/writing/show/etc. merits them a slot on the list. And I’m sure they do. But the greatest thing about Cincinnati’s music scene is its breadth. We have groups from all manner of sounds and genres. And not only do we span genres, we have good, talented groups within all the genres. We have the luxury of choice. And that, my friends, is a great little conundrum to deal with. We all can pick and choose which we see. The curse of riches is, for lack of a better term, awesome. Whether you decide to see one of the five bands above, or your personal favorite, be grateful that you’ve got the option to do so. Who are your favorite local bands? Does Grever’s list delight you? Does he enrage you? Be sure to let us know which bands you think deserve to be hailed as some of Cincinnati’s finest by e-mailing Sean Peters at newsrecordent@gmail.com with “Cincinnati Bands” as your subject.

Johnny Cash’s final, posthumous album: “American VI: Ain’t No Grave” James Sprague the news record

It’s been almost seven years since the passing of Johnny Cash, the legend who transcended genre stereotypes and became one of history’s quintessential musical storytellers. Much of his music has deluged the market since his death in September 2003, whether in new releases from producer Rick Rubin’s American Recordings, repackaged greatest hits compilations simply meant to capitalize on his name, or in movies like “Walk the Line.” The latest and final posthumous release from Cash, “American VI: Ain’t No Grave” however, should stand as his last will and testament of Cash, as it resounds with the finality of a man confronting death, and doing so with the calm and swagger that only he could muster. The album, once again produced by Rubin (of Beastie Boys, Run-DMC and Slayer fame) features 10 never-before-heard songs from Cash, including the selections “Redemption Day” written by Sheryl Crow and “For The Good Times” by Kris Kristofferson. The album, recorded only four months before Cash met his fate, also includes one original song, “I Corinthians 15:55.” Despite constant illness and the passing of his wife June Carter Cash during the recording, Cash was still able to find the resilience to produce what should become known as one of the greatest works of his career. The album is emotionally straightforward considering Cash’s weakened state;

minimalist in its instrumentation (no percussion whatsoever) and his cracked, weathered vocals are the aural equivalent of rawhide. Cash’s storytelling would not be as effective any other way. “There ain’t no grave can hold my body down” bellows Cash amid stark banjos and guitars in the opening title track. Accompanied by stomping feet and dragging chains, the song loudly pronounces the specter of death will not trap his soul. A bit of Cash’s attitude is interjected in the song as he proceeds to tell the angel Gabriel, “Don’t you blow your trumpet ‘til you hear from me.” Somewhere some soundtrack producer is trying to find a way to fit this song into a movie. “For The Good Times” is reminiscent of one of Cash and Kristofferson’s previous collaborations with the song “Sunday Morning Coming Down.” While the latter perfectly captured the hung over, empty emotion felt after a Saturday night of partying, the former captures the emotion of losing and remembering a loved one. “Don’t look so sad, I know it’s over,” intones Cash. “But life goes on and this ol’ world will keep on turning.” Not only does the song illustrate Cash’s emotion toward the loss of loved ones such as his wife June, it speaks volumes about how fans feel about his passing. The original “I Corinthians 15:55” is possibly the most optimistic song on the album, mocking death’s sting while proclaiming within an interwoven tapestry of piano and guitar that

39 STEPS Four performers tackle an incredible number of characters kelly mcgrady the news record

Richard Hannay’s strong, handsome and silent persona has not failed to woo every woman he’s come in contact with during his 95 years. Hannay is also known as a home wrecker, sending husbands worldwide into a state of jealousy and agitation. You’d understand their envy with just one look at his chiseled jaw line and stature. He’s been at it since Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 film “The 39 Steps” and continued to make his audience laugh, gasp and jump when he came to the Aronoff Center Monday, March 2.

Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon adapted the comical spy story from Hitchcock’s film (which was based off of John Buchan’s 1915 novel). Each character had its own personality and special traits, which is rather impressive considering the large cast. There were gasps and looks of disbelief exchanged by the audience members when the limited number of actors was revealed. What felt like 100 actors was actually only four. This proves the actors’ talent. They were able to pull off the personality and appearance of numerous characters. Much of the comedy was found in the way the characters would dress up or dress down. Some actors portrayed multiple characters without leaving the stage, using a hat or a coat to signify the character change. The toss and turn of events kept the plot interesting while keeping everyone’s stomach hurting from the inescapable laughter. Ted Deasy played the ever-so-masculine Richard Hannay, accentuating his manliness by smooching both married and non-married women. see 39 steps | page 2

Rev. Horton Heat riles Southgate House Nick Grever the news record

Hillbilly heaven Slicked back hair, a big ole’ hollow body guitar and some of the fastest rockabilly songs you could ever hope to hear. Yee haw.

The beers were poured into plastic cups. No photos were allowed. The bartenders remembered the last show, full of rowdy behavior. Walking into the Psycho Night of the Reverend Horton Heat’s two-night stay at Southgate House definitely had some expectations associated with it. The second night, Billy Night, was host to the Rev’s slower, more countryinfluenced music. But his first show was psychobilly all the way, and the crowd matched. Leather jackets, pomped hair and Pabst Blue Ribbon were all mainstays of the night’s crowd. Local sleaze master Banderas started off the night. The smattering crowd didn’t seem to connect with Banderas’ self-appointed “dune boogie” rock and roll. It was their loss. Banderas puts on one of the most consistently entertaining live acts in the city. Its grungy blend of punk, rock and grease-infused sludge makes their sound sensual, catchy and more than a little dirty. But it’s the band’s swagger that really gets the party started. These boys know how to present themselves on stage, playing with a bravado and sexuality missing in today’s rock and roll scene. Vocalist Jeremy Constantinople oozes sleaze and keyboardist T.R. McHenry oozes sex. The other members of the band ooze different amounts of each. Channeling some old school rock and roll elite Banderas played with strength.

newsrecordent@gmail.com | 513.556.5913

But it was obvious what the crowd really came to see. And when the Rev. took the stage, the crowd responded in kind with thunderous applause. Since it was the Psycho Night, the Rev. belted out some of its fastest hits. Of course “Psychobilly Freakout” was performed early, but Rev. and company maintained the energy and speed all night long. In fact, the show never really let up. Of course, the Rev., Jim Heath, took some time to address the audience, but he and his band quickly went back to playing the speediest entries in the Rev’s catalogue. The speed and intensity was evident the whole night through. With such high-paced music, it became easy to understand why all drinks had to be poured into plastic cups, although the crowd seemed to behave this go around. And the crowd was rewarded with some of the strongest guitar playing in recent memory. While you may not be familiar with the band name Reverend Horton Heat, it’s almost guaranteed that you’ve heard of the band’s work at one time or another. The Rev., along with Banderas, put on one hell of a show for their Southgate House audience. Speed, sensuality and sleaze were the orders of the night. Each band played exceptionally well, living up to their respective reputations. While the next night may have slowed it down a bit, for the audience, going Psycho was just fine.

Video games train athletes for real games

Every Cincinnati Bengals fan remembers the last play from the first game of the season against the Denver Broncos. Remember? The crazy catch by Brandon Stokley for the game-winning touchdown where he ran parallel to the goal line with 17 seconds left in the game? You would think that was a move his coach told him to do, right? Wrong. Something he picked up from his 11 years in the NFL? Nope. Stokley told Wired, a technology magazine, that he learned that move from playing the Madden NFL video games. In Madden, it’s known as the “bragging asshole move,” where you run back and forth along the goal line to taunt your opponent. Everyone who has ever played the game is guilty of doing this at least once. In real life, like against the Bengals, it also holds strategic value. It wasted the clock so the Bengals would have less time to march down the field. This example is just one of many that show how sports video games are starting to affect the actual sports that they were designed to simulate. Sport video games are starting to have an impact on all areas of different sports, from the athletes who participate to the media pre-game shows. One of the biggest impacts sports video games have had though is on the athletes. Games like Madden might be just another way to kill some time instead of doing homework for normal people like me. However, for athletes, video games are starting to be used as a training tool that teaches what to do in certain situations. And why not? When you think about it, it’s not a crazy idea. Simulators are already being used in other professional fields to teach, like in the military and commercial pilot training. Why not in sports, too? High school football coaches have already started making their players play Madden to learn about different offenses and certain situations. Specific plays and situations can be easily simulated in a video game and used as a training exercise, according to Wired magazine. And it’s not just football that can use video games to help athletes increase their knowledge of the game. Baseball and basketball players can learn from video games, too. Obviously, games won’t help a pitcher throw a 100-mph fastball or field a ball better, but it can help him increase his baseball IQ. For example, if a pitcher is forced to play a simulated double-play situation over and over, I bet he’ll know exactly what to do when he gets into that situation in real life. Sure he could actually do it in real life in practice, but that takes more time, energy and it would involve other people. Learning from a video game is fast and can be done on your own time, and many players like Cincinnati’s own Chad Ochocinco play video games a lot on their own time anyway. All you have to do is follow athletes on Twitter to realize how often they play video games. Same thing for basketball; a video game won’t help someone improve their jump shot, but it can help simulate plays and help teach what to do in certain game-time situations — arguably just as important. Maybe UC’s men’s basketball team could start using these tools. God knows they need all the help they can get right now. Sports video games have also had an effect on the media and how the game is presented to its fans. Anyone who regularly watches ESPN before football or basketball games knows what I’m talking about. Pre-game announcers use video games on ESPN to simulate big games and show key points and plays in the upcoming game. Instead of simply talking about their points, you can now see sports anchors words transformed into a 3-D demonstration. It’s a win-win situation: the fans get a better demonstration and clueless loudmouth sports anchors like Terry Bradshaw and Michael Irvin get to look smart. ESPN even uses Madden to predict games by letting the computer play each other. This is just a primitive guessing game see Games | page 2

Lacrosse falls in 2nd OT hunter tickel the news record

The University of Cincinnati lacrosse team had a three-goal comeback in the second half including a game-tying goal with less than 12 seconds left in regulation, but came up just short. The Bearcats lost to Duquesne 14-13 after sudden-death overtime. “Today was a battle for us and it’s going to set us up for success down the road,” said head coach Lellie Swords. “To go into overtime and sudden-death overtime is going to pay off.” The game remained tied at 13 after the first overtime periods until senior attacker Kat McNish of the Dukes scored a free position suddendeath goal in the second overtime session. The Bearcats trailed 11-8, but tied it at 12 with 3:11 left in regulation. The Dukes took a one-goal lead with 43 seconds remaining in regulation before freshman attacker Katie Kiriazoglou knotted the score with 11.2 seconds left.

“I think it’s one of those things of UC digging in and chipping away one at a time,” Swords said. DUQ. “Our motto is ‘no big deal,’ so we’re going to battle back and the fact that we were able to tie with 13 seconds left is unbelievable” UC did not get a shot off until the 10th minute of play and then scored less than a minute later on its second shot. “It took us that long in the other game,” Swords said. “It’s only our second game and the coaching staff wasn’t surprised.” Sophomore attacker Laura Simanki had a great individual effort for a goal with just over nine minutes remaining in the first period to give UC a 5-2 lead, its largest lead of the game. Duquesne (1-4-0) mounted a comeback though and eventually tied the game at five with just over three minutes left in the first half and then took the lead with

Freshman attacker Katie Kiriazoglou tacked on two more. “There were a couple of freshmen that stepped up big

BEACH LIFE Brooks’ sac-fly lifts Cats to series win sam elliott the news record

Playing outside the state of Florida for the first time this season, the University of Cincinnati baseball team won its home-opening series against Youngstown State. Thanks to a walk-off sacrifice fly by pinch hitter Beach Brooks, the Bearcats escaped with a 7-6 win Sunday, March 7. The Cats (5-4) split the first two games of the series, winning the opening game Friday, March 5, before losing to the Penguins Saturday. Cincinnati trailed the Penguins 4-0 early in Friday’s game, but freshman Logan Jackson put the Cats on the board with a grand slam as part of a nine-run sixth inning to power Cincinnati to a 15-5 win. “[Youngstown State’s] starter on Friday did a really good job against us until we got to him in the sixth,” said Bearcats’ head coach Brian Cleary. “We got into their bullpen and were able to string some things together. We did a good job later in the game there.”

Saturday, however, the Penguins limited Cincinnati to just three runs. “There’s just not too many college baseball games that get won with three runs,” Cleary said. Cincinnati’s starting pitcher Saturday, senior Tyler Smith, pitched seven innings and struck out seven Youngstown batters while giving up three hits and two runs. But the Bearcats’ bullpen couldn’t keep the momentum going, and the Penguins’ Anthony Porter hit a three-run home run in the eighth inning off Andrew Burkett to escape game two of the three-game series with a 5-3 win, setting up Sunday’s rubber match. Cleary was forced to use five different pitchers Sunday. Starter Thomas Gentile lasted just 2 2/3 innings before being pulled after giving up two runs, both earned, off three hits. “I didn’t think Gentile had enough command of his fastball today; we had to get him out of there,” Cleary said. Burkett made another appearance Sunday, earning the win after coming in at the start of the ninth inning with the Bearcats in front with a 6-5 lead. Youngstown’s Joe Iacobucci hit a home run to tie the game with the Penguins down to their final out.

“The most impressive thing was that [Burkett] came back and settled down and got us out of the inning,” Cleary said.” He kept us in it, and we were fortunate to get some big hits in the ninth.” The big hits in the ninth started with catcher Jimmy Jacquot’s triple off the center field wall and concluded one batter later with Brooks’ sacrifice fly. “When you’ve got the guy at third with the likelihood of scoring, we said ‘OK, we want to end this game right here,’ ” Cleary said. Cincinnati used a five-run third inning to build a 5-2 lead. Second baseman T.J. Jones and first baseman Kevin Johnson each drove in two runs in the inning. Mikel Huston improved his batting average to a team-best .625 after a 4-for-4 day at the plate with an RBI and a run scored, but Cleary thinks his team’s offense has room to improve. “We’re not as tenacious offensively and we’re not as aggressive offensively as we need to be. We’ve got to get better there, but that’s a constant work in progress,” Cleary said. The Bearcats return to the diamond at Marge Schott Stadium at 4 p.m., Wednesday, March 10, to face LeMoyne College.

Hoyas roll, Cincy 11 seed in tourney sam weinberg the news record

47 UC

In its final game of the regular season, the University of Cincinnati men’s basketball team lost to the 20th-ranked Georgetown Hoyas in a 74-47 blowout, GU Saturday, March 6. Missed free throws, turnovers and rebounding were all problems for the Bearcats. “There’s nothing to say,” said Cincinnati head coach Mick Cronin. “I told the team we all need to go look in a mirror and take responsibility.” The Bearcats have been struggling all year to be proficient from the free-throw line and continued to struggle against the Hoyas, going just 7 of 17 from the charity stripe. The Bearcats were also outrebounded 37-25 and committed 16 turnovers, giving Georgetown ample opportunities for easy points. “At the end of the day for us, we have to be able to score the ball around the basket and score some open shots,” Cronin said. “And then you have to be able step up to the free-throw line and make shots.”

Lay it in Freshman Lance Stephenson scored a career-high 23 points in Cincinnati’s 74-47 loss to Georgetown Saurday, March 6. The rest of the Bearcats shot a combined 8 of 32 from the field.

Both teams came out strong offensively in the first half, shooting better than 40 percent from the field. The Bearcats and the Hoyas traded baskets the entire first half, and with the biggest lead of the half being just four points; neither team was able to break away with a significant advantage. After a 3-point buzzer-beater by UC freshman Cashmere Wright, the Bearcats finished the half trailing Georgetown 26-29. At the start of the second half both teams continued to trade baskets. However, four minutes into the half the Bearcats went into an offensive slump at the same time the Hoyas started to heat up offensively. The Hoyas were able to go on a 21-4 run to put the game out of Cincinnati’s reach and coast the rest of the game to secure the win. “You can’t get beat by 24 in the second half. There’s no excuse for that, bottom line,” Cronin said. “That’s what happens when you turn the ball over, forcing passes to guys who aren’t there: carelessness with the basketball, you name it. You especially can’t do this when you’re on the road against a team that’s rolling on all cylinders.” Georgetown junior guard Austin

Freeman led the Hoyas with a game-high 24 points and went 4 of 7 from 3-point range in his first game back since being diagnosed with diabetes Thursday, March 4. Sophomore center Greg Monroe added 19 points and a game-high 15 rebounds for Georgetown, which had four players score 11 or more points. Bearcat freshman Lance Stephenson led Cincinnati with a career-high 23 points while grabbing seven rebounds. Stephenson connected on 11 of his 17 shot attempts, but his teammates combined to make only eight baskets, going a combined 8 of 32 from the field. Sophomore forward Yancy Gates was the next highest scorer for UC with seven points. “We got to be able to rely on someone to put the ball in the basket,” Cronin said. “Lance goes 11-for-17 [shooting], but look at the rest of us.” With the loss to Georgetown, the Bearcats finish their regular season on a three-game losing streak, going 7-11 in the Big East and 16-14 overall. The Bearcats will travel to Madison Square Garden in New York City for the 2010 Big East Tournament beginning Tuesday, March 9.
