University of Northern Iowa global studies major Rebecca Byrne believes an email sent in June 2011 from the UNI Study Abroad Office containing personal student information may violate the Family and Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). However, Phil Patton, the university registrar, said the office reviewed the situation and concluded it was not a violation of FERPA. “I believe this incident represents a mishandling of protected personal information and puts almost 1,000 people at risk of identity theft and a university office responsible for it,” Byrne said. “Intentional or unintentional, the Study Abroad Center has committed a grievous error and should be held responsible for the release of this information.” According to Byrne, she received an email from the Study Abroad Office informing its recipients of additional space on an English teaching trip

The University of Northern Iowa Forensics team recently returned from the AFA-NIET National Tournament in San Marcos, Texas, with one of their best performances in recent history, receiving 10th in team and team sweepstakes. Katherine LaVelle, communication studies professor and director of the forensics team, thought this year’s performers were “really experienced and prepared for the tournament.” “Over the past two years, (instructor Rebecca Buel) worked hard to set up a

framework for nationals that has really paid off this year for the entire squad,” said LaVelle. “Last year, we had a couple of people who qualified to nationals with just one event, but this year, everyone had at least two, and several students had multiple events qualified to nationals. I think that this balance demonstrates the experience and maturity of the team.” LaVelle, who has been active in forensics since high school, feels like being involved in forensics was critical to giving her direction for her future and isn’t < See FORENSICS, page 4

EARTH WEEK

Couple competes to produce minimal waste in documentary ALAN WILKINS Staff Writer

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average American throws away 1,130 pounds of waste each year. Two roommates in Canada decided to start a competition to reduce this amount and see which of them could produce the least amount of waste in a year. The competition resulted in the documentary “The Clean Bin Project,” which was shown at the University of Northern Iowa’s Center for Energy and Environmental Education on April 12. To produce the least amount of waste possible, the two roommates — Jen and Grant — started their own garden, ate more vegetables, made their own toothpaste, shaved with dull razors and washed plastic Ziploc bags to be used again. At the end of the project, Jen had produced less waste by volume and Grant had produced less waste by weight, but they decided Jen was the winner because her consumption habits were bet-

ter. Altogether, they produced eight pounds of waste in one year. Katie Arp, a senior microbiology major, said she thinks having people see the waste they generate could help with the amount of waste produced. “You can tell people how it’s bad and all the trash they’re generating is being thrown away, but I think good visuals and seeing everything would help,” Arp said. Jenny Bruss, community program and outreach manager of the Recycling and Reuse Technology Transfer Center, decided to show the movie in conjunction with Earth Week, which continues this week. “With the students having Earth Week coming up, (I thought) it would be a good idea to show them the impact we are making on the planet through our waste,” Bruss said.

HIGH SCHOOL

Physics competition held in McLeod Center NIKEYTA DRAIN Staff Writer

More than 250 high school students flooded the floor of the McLeod Center last Wednesday. The students, hailing from 28 different schools, came to compete in the State of Iowa Physics Competition hosted by the University of Northern Iowa Department of Physics. The objective of the contest was to use various everyday materials to construct a specific device. Each team competed in individual contests with the combined total scores from each event resulting in the Physics Event Grand Champion. Individual contests consisted of five events: Mousetrap Car, Bridge Building, Soda Straw Arm, Challenge Problem and Material Recovery Facility (an event sponsored by the Iowa Recycling Association). Although students were required to be in high school in order to compete, Price Lab science teacher Allison Beharka proved that it was never too early to awaken students’ interest in the field of science. “I brought my seventh-graders here,” said Beharka. “They’re not old enough to compete yet, but I thought they could use

the experience. Many of the high schools that will be attending will qualify for the competition and these students definitely take it seriously.” Sparking students’ interests in science early as spectators of the physics competition was not the only way students were motivated to get more involved. “Getting students interested in science isn’t a tough sale. Most kids like to prove themselves and compete against each other. Coming to this competition to do that is beneficial because it’s also an opportunity for my students to see and learn from what other kids are doing,” said Jared Pickett, Emmetsburg High School physics teacher. Emmetsburg High School later went on to place first in the Challenge Problem event. Ogden High School claimed first place in the Self-Propelled Catapult, Cedar Falls High in the Bridge Building event, Washington High took first in the Soda Straw arm competition and Marquette Catholic High School received first place medals in the Mousetrap Car contest. Awards, however, were not the only reward students found and earned at

the competition. “The thing we love about this competition is that it’s not all about math but focuses on creativity,” said Tamara Wild, St. Ansgar High School senior. “We definitely plan to pass on the legacy to the next class.” After three hours of severe competition, first, second- and third-place winners were chosen for the overall competition. Only schools with teams that completed a minimum of five of the physics events were eligible to obtain a State of Iowa Physics Competition trophy. Marquette Catholic School placed first, Washington second and Wahlert High School claimed third place.

sure if she would be teaching college today if she hadn’t been involved. The UNI Forensics team was able to qualify six students, who competed in 24 events, for nationals. Harrison Postler, junior communication major, was able to make it to the finals in three of his six events, the first time someone has done so within one year in UNI forensics history. One of the reasons Postler, who has been involved in speech since junior high, chose to attend UNI was because of the forensics team. “Being on the speech team is what has really shaped my experience at UNI, and the members of the team are basically another family,” Postler said. “It sounds cliché, but it’s true. You get to know everyone very well, and it’s a really great environ-

ment.” Postler ended up placing second in Duo Interpretation with freshman communication major Ryan Courtney, fifth in After Dinner Speaking and sixth in Impromptu Speaking. Mandy Paris, senior English major, just joined the forensics team last year after transferring to UNI and made it to the quarterfinals with her After Dinner Speaking performance. According to Paris, the speech team is like a family. “The people on the UNI Speech Team are really cool,” said Paris. “Even if you’re not super active on the team, we’re very inclusive and we’re all really good friends. It’s a nice, supportive environment.” Michael Taylor, senior communication major and team president, feels joining the forensics team is the best decision he has made at UNI thus far.

“The experience has been great. We’ve had very talented people come through these past four years that I’ve been here,” said Taylor. “We’ve traveled across the country and have had a lot of fun with everyone.” Taylor, who made it to the quarterfinals with his Program Oral Interpretation event, loves to have anyone passionate about speech join the team. “We have a lot of kids that have come from different (speech) backgrounds,” said Taylor. “We want to allow people to express themselves in different ways because each person has their own specialty.” Other forensics members who made it to the quarterfinals were Zoe Russell, sophomore religion major, and Jordan Lukehart, freshman social science major, both of whom competed in After Dinner Speaking events.

in China for summer 2011. The email also contained two Microsoft Excel attachments with current and past participants’ UNI ID numbers, names, study abroad program name, email addresses, emergency contacts’ numbers and emergency contacts’ relationship. Byrne then contacted the Office of the Registrar and was directed to Mary Baumann, associate registrar, who works with FERPA guidelines. According to Byrne, in Baumann’s response, she said releasing the student ID numbers was not a violation, but it is not the “Study Abroad Center’s common practice to share that information with others” and it was done in error. While Byrne said it’s “very possible that the information sent out was accidental,” she believes the situation should not be ignored. According to the Department of Education’s website, under FERPA, parents and eligible students have the right to inspect and review education records, the “right to request that a school correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading” and, generally, the right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information. However, institutions have the right to disclose directory information to a third party without prior consent. Directory information is defined as information about a student that is generally not considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed and is contained in an education record. Directory information includes one’s name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance. According to Patton, FERPA allows institutions to “identify as many elements as (they) wish” as directory information, except for an individual’s Social Security number. “Other than that, there is more latitude as to what can be declared as directory information,” Patton said. Students have the right to choose how much personal information they disclose at any time and as many times as they wish by logging into their MyUNIverse account and updating their personal information. Once the changes are made, they will remain that way, even after the student gradu-

ates, unless the student again changes the information. Whether the Study Abroad Center violated FERPA or not, Byrne said she thinks the center should notify the students that their information was released. “I think that, you know, no matter how you look at the situation, even if it turns out not to be a FERPA violation, which very well could be that, they should still notify these students that their information was released just to be doing what a university should do to protect their students,” Byrne said. “I just would like to see the university take responsibility, whether this release of this information was accidental or not, to notify these students. Many have absolutely no idea that their information was sent out in an email.” However, according to Patton, Iowa law does not require UNI to inform the said students of the disclosure of information. “There are certain requirements under Iowa law, but they deal more with (the) Social Security number,” Patton said. “I would say that there is nothing in the law that I can think of that would require that disclosure.” Spencer Walrath, student body president, thinks UNI should inform the students, even if the law does not require it. “I am not an expert on FERPA, so if the university says that it has not violated FERPA, I will believe them,” Walrath said. “However, I think that it is important for the students and parents whose information was sent out to be notified that their information is out there, so that they can take measures to protect themselves. The university may not have to notify them according to the law, but I believe they should out of common courtesy, especially if they have their information suppressed in the university directory.”

My final corny yet meaningful message

am currently sitting alone in the office on my final afternoon as University of Northern Iowa student body vice president. Part of me sits here in deep nostalgia, knowing I will miss many positive aspects about this position; another part of me sits here and giggles knowing that I will be done with the stress tied with the job. As I reflect on the past 365 days, I can’t help but ask myself the same question that former UNI Provost James Lubker asked me after class the other day: “If you had the foresight of everything the year would entail, would you do it again?” My answer is an assertive “absolutely.” I have learned a lot this year. I have a 98-page binder for my first semester’s internship credit to prove it (and that was the semester without the budget cut chaos). I’ve learned about university politics and the intricate processes of decision-making. I’ve learned that some ideas succeed and some ideas fail. I’ve learned that change is hard and blame is easy. I’ve even learned that, for better or worse, people are more likely to remember you for popular dances than for anything else. With everything that this past year has brought, I could not decide what I wished to touch on in my final column. Initially I planned to summarize the accomplishments, improvements

and strides the Northern Iowa Student Government has made over the course of the year. But then I realized that it should not ever be about how much of our platform we finished or what type of legacy we left. We are part of a continuing cycle of student leaders, leaders who came before us to model the job and leaders who will continue excellence after us. Year after year, these students desire to improve the school and represent their fellow students well. This desire is exuded from all of the incredible people that work at UNI. Spencer and I could not have enjoyed more the privilege of working with the tens of hundreds of faculty, staff and administrators — the people who make this school what it is. I’ll never forget what President Allen once said. In a room full of approximately 150 of UNI’s deans, department heads, directors and other leaders, he pointed to me and said something to the effect of, “People like Ian are the reason I do what I do. The students of UNI are the reason I am here.” Regardless of differences, I assure you that the main commonality among all faculty, staff and administrators is their passion for improving this school to be the best it can be for you. Since I want to keep my final message simple, I decided that I wish to leave with the message we had at day one of our campaign: UNI is amazing because of YOU. I am uncertain of the future of our school, but I am certain that as long as the UNI community stays cohesive and united, the future will be brighter than ever before. On behalf of President Emeritus Spencer Walrath and all members of the 2011-2012 NISG administration, I want to thank you for a wonderful year. Keep being amazing. Ian Goldsmith is a senior

theatre major from Earlville, Iowa. He served as the student body vice president for the 2011-2012 academic year.

For how opinionated I usually am, I’ve stayed relatively quiet on how I feel about the proposed program and faculty cuts. The main reason is that I don’t see myself on one side or the other, at least in the way the debate is most often being framed. On the one hand, I think serious, disruptive change needs to occur if we want the University of Northern Iowa to continue being a quality university. We cannot afford to sustain so many programs without facing even more serious economic consequences in the future. On the other hand, I don’t agree with all the specific choices that were made. One of the most illogical and egregious of these is the proposed restructuring of the Department of Philosophy and World Religions. While all the specifics haven’t been released, we know that part of this entails the letting go of four tenured faculty members. For many reasons, this isn’t beneficial in saving the university money, nor is it a department that the university can afford to “restructure” (which in this instance is really code for weakening the program). First, let’s analyze the impact of losing four tenured faculty members in the most basic sense. Currently, there are 12 tenured faculty in the department. Two are on phased retirement. This means that in a few years, the number of faculty in the program will be halved. Losing so many knowledgeable scholars will be undoubtedly detrimental to the department’s success, whether or not adjuncts are hired to replace them. Second, the philosophy faculty do much more than teach philosophy. They have inspired so many students that over the last three years, the major has doubled in size; it has gone from fewer than 30 majors to more than 60 this year. As a student who was encouraged to explore philosophy by one of these professors, I can attest to the

STEF MCGRAW

fact that they are constantly seeking out new majors who would make a great fit for the program. Third, while this is obviously anecdotal, I cannot help but notice the number of campus leaders who are also philosophy majors. This includes two of our last three student body presidents, the editor of the Northern Iowan and numerous leaders in the Northern Iowa Student Government senate, the Greek community and many other organizations. No, we can’t establish a real causal relationship at the moment, but it’s at least something to consider. Finally, let’s get to the economic impact of this department. Even if the administration isn’t concerned with the former (though I would hope they are), they cannot justify cuts to the department when it wouldn’t actually benefit the university economically. The philosophy and world religions professors are unique in that they don’t only teach major classes, they also teach more than 50 percent of the humanities courses. Cuts to this department’s faculty would not only hurt majors, but also the more than 2,000 students they reach outside the program. Because of the wide number of students reached, among other factors, philosophy is the third least expensive program on campus. If the administration is truly trying to save money, how can this make sense? If you also think this is illogical, speak up. “Restructured” programs didn’t have to be approved by the Board of Regents, so our voices actually have the potential to make a tangible impact on the future of this university. Stef McGraw is a senior in philosophy and Spanish from Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The tuba is strong with this one JOHN ANDERSON Executive Editor

As soon as the iconic yellow letters scrolled through space and the deep sound of tubas shook my seat, I knew I was in for a treat. “Tuba Wars: A Parody with Music,” a riff on “Star Wars” performed by the UNITuba ensemble in Davis Hall of the GallagherBluedorn Performing Arts Center Thursday night, follows Luke Skywalker, a restless teenager working at an instrument repair shop on a windy planet, as the arrival of C-3PO, a droid with amnesia, with a tuba that will not play (R2DTuba?) sends him on a journey to rescue Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Darth Vader. This isn’t the “Star Wars” you know, however. The light-

sabers are traded for tubas and euphoniums, the wise Obi-Wan Kenobi comes off a little drunk as he teaches young Luke the ways of the force (which consist of occasional mind control and the ability to play a mean euphonium) and the actors portraying Leia and the rugged Han Solo switched genders. The result is a more feisty Solo and ridiculously tall Leia, whose fake bosom must have had a tractor beam, because almost every character’s face found itself hilariously nestled between her fake death stars at one point or other during the show. The performance interspersed its highbrow lowbrass renditions of classic “Star Wars” themes and Lady Gaga hits (which sound better through the horn of a tuba, by the way) with its humorous

plot, poking no small amount of fun at its source material — for example, during their classic duel, Vader stops the action to ask Obi-Wan, “How can you become more powerful than I can ever imagine if you’re dead?” Oh, Darth. Directors Tori Rezek, a senior theatre major and tuba player, and Holly Botzum, a graduate student in the UNITuba ensemble, have been working on the performance for a year, though its history goes back a long, long time ago to a 1981 radio broadcast on KUNI-FM called “Tuba Wars” that featured the 1981 UNITuba ensemble. Rezek made brilliant use of the space in Davis Hall, sending her performers to the catwalks for the epic tuba battles and hilarious chase

Keldermans carries on campanile tradition JAIME YOWLER Staff Writer

Karel Keldermans, a renowned North American carillonneur, visited the University of Northern Iowa last Thursday and Friday to perform music at the campanile. In the past 30 years, he has performed around the world and written a book along with his wife, Linda, entitled “Carillon: The Evolution of a

Convert Instrument in North America.” “It’s not so much about just playing the carillon,” Keldermans said. “I play a multitude of instruments and I love them all. My true passion is really for music and performance.” Keldermans has great respect for the university — especially for the campanile, as his close friend Robert Byrnes played it from

1973 until his death in 2004. Byrnes was also a longtime director of the UNI Varsity Men’s Glee Club. “My friend Bob Byrnes played this instrument and I was honored to play it for his memorial alongside the Glee Club,” Keldermans said.

On April 21, the University of Northern Iowa Textiles and Apparel students will host their 20th annual design show. Each year, students put on a fashion show in order to show off their hard work and original designs. To celebrate two decades running, this year is expected to be an over-the-top, circus-themed show named “Catwalk to the Big Top.” The show will be divided into four sections: “Rubies,” for ready-to-wear clothing; “Zoomanity,” for bold colors and patterns; “Funambulist,” for formal wear; and “Delerium,” which will consist of non-traditional pieces and wearable art. Junior textiles and apparel major Holly Wirtjes is entering 11 garments into the show this year, including a hot pink dress entitled “Lady Tulip” in the formal wear section. “I started making my first of 11 garments during summer 2011 but typically, for myself at least, a garment can take up to two weeks from start to finish,” said Wirtjes. “On the other hand, my best piece constructionwise was finished in two days.” Students put a lot of

effort into their pieces and anticipate seeing their hard work displayed in the show every year. Not only do the students put a lot of time into making the pieces to be modeled, but they also plan, organize and direct the show. Wirtjes and Kaitlin Juhl, a senior textiles and apparel major, are the executive directors this year. Caroline Liechty, junior textiles and apparel major, is director of choreography. Ashley Quick, senior textiles and apparel major, is the stylization director, and Hilary Hinrichs, junior textiles and apparel major, is the creative director. “I’m looking forward to seeing the show that I’ve worked so hard on come together and see the final product with my fellow directors,” said Wirtjes. Wirtjes said the Lang Hall Auditorium is packed each spring with an energetic audience, excited to watch models strut down the runway in the designers’ latest fashions. “Every year, we have an abundance of models and end up having to turn some models away,” said Wirtjes. “And we always have a full audience.” The show is free and all ages are welcome to attend. Doors open at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 21.

BancroftSmithe said he found hope in the fight against cancer and in the future of the university in the resolve of the hundreds of students at the event. “We live on a fractured campus and in a distraught community that needs a lot of healing, and I believe that it is individuals exactly like you who will be doing that healing,” he said. “UNI students have shown over and over that when times get tough, we just buckle down and work harder.” UNI President Benjamin Allen joined many other cancer survivors for the first lap of the night. Allen was diagnosed with prostate cancer in November 2010 and underwent successful treatment in early 2011. “It’s just a wonderful event for a great cause,” he said. “It speaks volumes about our students, and that’s so important.” The event featured several activities, including a blazing wings challenge, a dance party, a pickle-spitting contest and a photo booth, with different per-

formances and games throughout the night. Many students set up blankets and sleeping bags on the McLeod Center floor to rest and drank free soda and energy drinks to stay awake. The emotional climax of the evening came with the luminaria ceremony, during which paper bags surrounding the concourse were lit by glow sticks in order to honor those affected by cancer, from brothers and sisters to neighbors and friends, while their names were read aloud. Droessler said the ceremony allows those affected to release emotions in a supporting environment. “A lot of people don’t let that emotion show throughout the year, so to have a night where you’re surrounded by people who feel the same way that you do is really powerful,” she said. Droessler, who began planning this year’s Relay the day after the previous event finished, said her favorite part came at 5:59 a.m., when participants walked the final lap of the Relay. “To see that many students want to stay up until 6 a.m. on a Saturday instead of go to the Hill or do any other thing, and see that they actually want to be here and they have it in their hearts to actually want to fight cancer is so great,” she said. “And the final lap, everyone is cheering and they’re so energetic … and it’s emotional to know that it’s all over, but it’s really worth it.”

The Students Against a Violent Environment Forum Actors are out to raise awareness, but not in a conventional way. SAVE uses free-verse poetry, audience participation and short skits to educate students about boundaries, gender roles and sexual assault in modern society. Last Thursday, students gathered in the Interpreters Theatre to witness the SAVE Forum Actors firsthand. Amandajean Nolte, communication instructor, began the night by thanking Sofia Seliger, a senior in psychology, for all her hard work with the group. “She saved the theater on more than one occasion,” Nolte said.

The lights soon went out, and five actors in pink shirts walked onto the stage. This was the free-verse group, who performed poems of their own choosing on the topics of gender expectations. Yaw Kyeremateng, a senior in health promotion, and Jorge De Leon, a graduate student in communication studies, played the parts of two ends of the masculine spectrum. Kyetemateng, on the super masculine side, recited pieces about growing up with an abusive father and feeling to need to constantly prove his manliness. De Leon took a much more subdued route, playing a timid man who was confused about why society demanded he throw his weight around and why he

couldn’t simply be himself. “I didn’t even cry at my grandfather’s funeral, because I knew he would sit up in his casket and call me a queer,” said De Leon during one of his solo parts. The free-verse group comprised only a small part of the night’s content. A second group of actors performed short, more narrative-based pieces that involved the audience in various ways. One act challenged members in attendance to shout “stop” when they saw a gender stereotype being played out on stage, while another let the audience shape two people on stage to fit popularized gender norms. Attributes like “pants down,” “muscles” and “crotch grab” were shouted out for the < See SAVE FORUM, page 9

UNI completes two-game sweep of Creighton, moves to 14-0 in MVC JAKE BEMIS Sports Writer

After falling to extend their 15-game winning streak on Wednesday, the University of Northern Iowa Panthers were back in action this weekend to start a new winning streak. The Panthers took on Creighton University in what was supposed to be a threegame series but was shortened to two games due to severe weather on Saturday. UNI swept Creighton to remain undefeated in the Missouri Valley Conference. Game one of the series started Saturday afternoon and finished Sunday afternoon. After both teams scored two runs in the first inning, the game was suspended due to lightning. Jamie Fisher, who started the game on Saturday, returned to the mound on Sunday. Fisher gave up four runs (three earned runs) while striking out fourteen batters in seven innings of work to secure a 5-4 victory for UNI. The Panthers were down 4-2 heading into the top of the seventh inning, but a twoout rally sparked the UNI

offense. With a runner on first, Julia Hunter reached on a fielding error. The next batter, Mackenzie Daigh, singled and advanced to third on a throwing error to tie the game up 4-4. Laura Turner later singled to give the Panthers a 5-4 lead. All three runs UNI scored in the final inning were unearned. Daigh was the only Panther to record a multihit game, going two-for-three with an RBI. With the win, Jamie Fisher is now 15-1 on the season. Game two of the series was game two of a Sunday doubleheader. Jaye Hutcheson took the mound for the Panthers, who dominated with the bats. UNI took a commanding lead in the first two innings and never looked back, winning decisively 15-3 in five innings. Hutcheson struck out seven of the 24 batters she faced while giving up four hits and two earned runs in five innings pitched. UNI scored two runs in the first and second innings to take an early 4-0 lead. In

TRACK AND FIELD

UNI track and field enjoys strong showing at the Jim Duncan Invitational and Cornell Open MAT MEYER Sports Writer

JUSTIN ALLEN/Northern Iowan

UNI senior Daniel Gooris won the pole vault event at the Jim Duncan Invitational in Des Moines with a height of 16 feet, 6.75 inches.

The University of Northern Iowa track and field team split up to compete in two different events over the weekend. The Panther throwers headed to the Cornell Open in Mt. Vernon, Iowa, where they put together an excellent performance. The rest of the team went to the Jim Duncan Invitational, hosted by Drake University in Des Moines. Panther freshman Justin Baker stole the show in the shot put at the Cornell Open, setting a new personal best in the event. Baker’s throw of 57 feet, 5.75 inches was enough to take the event title and give him the third-best throw in Missouri Valley Conference this season. Junior thrower Jordan Williams continued his impressive season with an event title in the discus. His throw of 182 feet, 7 inches earned him a new

personal best and a win in the event. On the women’s side of the Cornell Open, senior Traci Harms won the shot put with a throw of 48 feet, 6 inches. Harms also took first place in the hammer throw with a toss of 182 feet. The Panthers also performed well at the Jim Duncan Invitational. UNI took first place in both men’s and women’s pole vault. Senior Daniel Gooris continued his outstanding year with a vault of 16 feet, 6.75 inches to win the event. Jenna Wexter also took first place in the women’s pole vault with a leap of 12 feet, 5.5 inches. Michaela Brungardt placed third in the women’s 200-meter dash with a time of 24.97 seconds, marking the fastest time by a Panther this season. UNI will travel to Iowa City to compete in the Musco Invitational on April 21.

PAUL’S PERSPECTIVE

UNDER FURTHER REVIEW

Should Olympic athletes get paid to represent their country? PAUL KOCKLER Sports Columnist

Last week both Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat and Ray Allen of the Boston Celtics suggested that Team USA basketball players should be compensated for their play in the upcoming Olympic Games. Wade quickly clarified his comments soon after his initial answer to the reporter’s question on the issue, saying that money was not his motivation for playing in the Olympics. The fallout of the issue has been very interesting to me. Just like college athletes should be paid for all the money they bring into their respective universities (a star player brings in much more than the value of his or her scholarship), I believe Olympians should be paid as well. However, the problem comes down to feasibility. It always sounds great on paper, but I don’t think it would ever work out. Does everyone get paid the same? Do the more popular athletes make more than the less popular ones? Do the most-viewed events pay out more to their athletes? People buy No. 3 jerseys with Wade’s name on the back and wear them with pride, but I’m not sure a lot of people would buy Speedos with Michael Phelps’ name on the back. Yet, who was the bigger athlete in the last Olympics? Based off this logic, should Wade get paid more than Phelps? These are all questions that would have to be answered. Even the USA Basketball Chairman Jerry Colangelo said paying players isn’t possible. The money the USA basketball team brings in gets distributed among all Olympic sports. While I believe that it would be nice for all Olympians to get compen-

sated. I don’t have a problem with the current setup. If giving back to the country that has allowed you to become as famous and rich for playing a game isn’t enough, I don’t know what is. The athletes do get paid. Direct payment comes through cash-paid medal winners ranging from $25,000 for a gold medal and $10,000 for a bronze medal. They also get paid through Olympic bonuses in their equipment contracts with companies like Nike and Adidas. For players like Wade, this is probably a very substantial amount of money. Athletes also get the opportunity to display themselves on a global market which can have immeasurable financial benefits and increase endorsement opportunities over the course of the athlete’s life. Everyone knows what they are getting themselves into when they are striving to become Olympic athletes. They don’t have to participate if they don’t want to (another freedom the United States provides). For every rich megastar like Wade, there are others who are just normal people with incredible gifts. These people don’t have leagues like the National Basketball Association that made them rich like Wade. These people play for the love of the game and that is very honorable. We never heard the greats like Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson complain about getting paid to represent their country. If the Olympic Committee knocked on my door and asked me to suit up for the red, white and blue, I wouldn’t think twice before signing up. I think it is the least I can do for being lucky enough to call myself an American and a great way to give back for the opportunities the country has given me.

Many experts project Andrew Luck (12) to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

If Andrew Luck goes No. 1 overall, Robert Griffin III (10) will likely go No. 2 overall to the Washington Redskins.

ratio, total rushing yards, average yards per carry and rushing touchdowns. He even has one more year of more experience at the college level. Griffin threw two fewer passes than Luck on the season (404 attempts versus 402), so the sample size was nearly identical. Am I saying that RGIII is better than Luck? No, but I think that if we’re basing our arguments off of anything, it should be the only tangible evidence we have: statistics. Really, I’m just surprised that the topic of “which quarterback is better” hasn’t been under more scrutiny. Statistically, Griffin is better, so why doesn’t that feed into the discussion — no, why isn’t there a discussion at all? I have no issue with predraft speculations, so long as the arguments aren’t presented as fact. This isn’t a perfect science, but if we are trying to find proof, shouldn’t stats be a major indicator? I realize that statistics don’t accurately predict which athletes will be successful at the next level. If that were the case, quarterbacks like Kurt Warner would never have a shot at making the NFL Hall of Fame, because they wouldn’t stack up against the top quarterbacks year after year. The options are clear. Either stop presenting players as “indisputably better” than others, or at the very least, only do so when referring to specific statistics. There is nothing wrong with projection and prediction, as long as people don’t think you’re trying to pass it by as scientific law. Luck may be a better NFL quarterback than Griffin, but can we please have the integrity to admit we’re making predictions when we glorify athletes? Let’s at least let them get onto the field before we begin the condemnation.

Analyzing NFL Draft prospects: Projection and prediction Sports Columnist

The greatest day of the year is nearly upon us. I’m talking about the National Football League’s 2012 Draft, a day where college and pro football fans can come together in mutual love. Who is to say that Andrew Luck is going to be a better NFL quarterback than Robert Griffin III? Apparently every sports critic, writer and pundit ever. It’s practically without question that Andrew Luck will be selected as the first overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft, and that may be the best fit for the Indianapolis Colts. What I don’t understand is why nearly everyone has dismissed Griffin, or RGIII as he’s nicknamed. Griffin, the recent Heisman trophy winner from Baylor University, has been deemed inferior by much of the media. I’m not saying that I believe RGIII is the best future NFL quarterback, but I’m shocked by the massive shadow that Luck has cast over him. The two athletes are surprisingly similarly successful. In the main areas where they differ, RGIII seems to be leading statistically. Both quarterbacks are from Bowl Championship Series conferences, both played college football in major football states, Texas and California respectively, and both have accolades for high performance. At what point did Andrew Luck become the obvious answer in everyone’s mock-draft? When looking at last season’s stats, Griffin and Luck have the same number of touchdown passes, an outrageous 37. Griffin leads in quarterback rating, passing yards, average yards per completion, fewer interceptions, completion percentage, touchdown-to-interception

the top of the third inning, Whitney Plein hit a solo home run to extend the UNI lead to 5 runs. Later in the inning, with the bases loaded, Laura Turner reached base on an error to give the Panthers a 6-0 lead. The Panthers extended their lead to seven runs before the inning was over. With an 8-2 lead heading into the fifth inning, UNI exploded for seven more runs. Allison Galvin started the scoring with a threeRBI triple to bring UNI’s

lead to 11-2. The next batter, Whitney Plein, hit her second home run to give the Panthers a double-digit lead. UNI scored two more runs, which eventually led to the 15-3 victory. Plein finished the game going 3-3 with two home runs and a triple, while also recording three runs and three RBIs. UNI returns to action Wednesday to face Bradley University in Peoria, Ill., for a two-game series. The Panthers then come home for a three-game series starting Saturday, April 21 against Missouri State University.
