UNT student, soldier Junior kills competition recognized for service JASON YANG
Senior Staff Writer His rugby teammates call him Stevie D. During warm-ups, Stevie D. is just another member of the UNT Rugby Club. Sgt. Steven Davidson, 2012’s “Military Times” Soldier of the Year, remains humble about his accomplishments. But the UNT freshman – who earned the commendation after saving the life of a man suffering from heat exhaustion during a 120-mile hike in the Horn of Africa – shows a quiet heroism in everything he does, from his military service to his community outreach to his academic life. More than anything, Davidson hopes his story will inspire others. “I believe there are thousands of soldiers who deserve this award more than me,” he said. “What I have to do this upcoming year is represent well and bring honor to this award by community involvement and getting other service members involved.” Davidson was born in Columbia, S.C., on June 2, 1991. He moved from city to city until his parents divorced in 2005, when he went to live with his mother, Brenda, in Justin, Texas. He at tended Nor th West High School in Justin, where he worked as an athletic trainer. After deciding football wasn’t for him, he

Davidson joined Alliance Rugby, a non-profit youth rugby program in North Texas, and fell in love with the sport. He enrolled at North Central Texas College in Corinth in 2009. Shortly after beginning at
NCTC, Davidson discovered the high cost of college, and enlisted in the Army that October to ease the financial burden.

SGA holds first meeting Freshman creates site BEN PEYTON Staff Writer
The St udent Government Association focused on f inalizing internal positions during its first Senate meeting of the fall semester. Business junior Adam Hasley, who previously held the position of Chairman of the External Committee for SGA, was elected Senate Speaker over emergency administration and planning senior Nicholas LaGrassa and exercised his new position for the remainder of the meeting. “I have a group of people [the SGA senate] who want to be here and that are efficient,” Hasley said. “Now we have to become inf luential.” Valuing st udent input and increasing the student body’s awareness of SGA are both goals of President Rudy Reynoso and Vice President Justin Wood’s platform.
Criminal justice sophomore Marcos Torres, who has served as a senator for two years, was elected to speaker pro tempore over pre-political science sophomore Austin Campbell. Journalism sophomore Lauren Smith, who ran unopposed, was elected as secretar y. The Sergeant-at-Arms election will be postponed until the Supreme Court reaches a decision on a term-length dispute. Senator LaGra s sa wa s elected Sergeant-at-Arms for a one-year term in February, after Senator Torres stepped down. The Supreme Court will decide whether or not to adjust SGA bylaws to align the SGA’s position terms. T he Elect ion Board and the Supreme Court were also confirmed at the meeting. A spokesman from the UNT Mean Green Racing team, which is currently building a car for the
2013 SAE International Collegiate Design Series, spoke to the SGA about the team’s ongoing project. Formula SAE is a st udent racing car design competition that began in 1979 at the University of Houston. T he s p oke s ma n e n c ou r aged students to join the Mean Gr e e n R a c i ng t e a m. T h e project should be completed by April, and students can follow the team’s progress on their Facebook page at Facebook.com/ UNTMeanGreenRacing. The team will be presenting some of their work and a demonstration of an SAE car on Sept. 13 in Discovery Park Room 345 and will have a tent at Apogee Stadium at Saturday’s football game. The SGA has received 70 freshmen intern applications for the fall semester. Applicants will be narrowed down in the weeks to come.
to connect students ELEANOR SADLER Intern
Classes full of nameless faces, a campus sprawling more than 875 acres and a new learning environment are a few concerns that pre-computer science freshman Jesse Stauﬀer took into account when he created ClassChain. com. Stauﬀer designed ClassChain, a free social networking site open to all college students with a university email address, to make the transition from high school to a large university easier and to help students of all classiﬁcations connect. Stauﬀer began testing the site June 20 and oﬃcially launched it Aug. 6, just in time for the beginning of the fall semester. He said his main complaint with other social media sites was the diﬃculty he faced in ﬁnding
classmates. “I realized that there wasn’t really any way for me to connect with people that I didn’t necessarily know, but that I experienced in everyday life,” Stauffer said. “So I looked around for that a little bit, and when I didn’t ﬁnd it I made it myself.” ClassChain stands out from other social networking sites because it only shows its users students from the same university. The site provides a social dashboard that links members’ other social media networks – in one click, users are directed to other members’ Facebook or Twitter pages. This allows users to ﬁnd classmates easily on ClassChain. “These are people that you see in your classes and groups and dorms, and it’s not just a random guy that adds you from China,” Stauﬀer said. After members input class and course information on their proﬁle,
they are automatically grouped with other students enrolled in the same course and section. With the class and group chatter feature, users can converse with students in the same classes, and make speciﬁc groups for class projects and more. Mechanical engineering freshman Adil Dadabhoy said the chatter was his favorite service on ClassChain. “It’s a good way to find other people in your classes and make study groups,” Dadaboy said. Students on ClassChain can customize and create new groups, ranging from freshman orientation groups to religious organizations to UNT clubs. Radio, television and film freshman Chase Cakmis said that being able to join, create and see all the open groups has been the site’s most useful feature.

Soldier Continued from Page 1 He originally chose infantry. However, after noting too many similarities between infantry and the high school football program he had left in Justin, Davidson went into administration for the Army, serving as a human resources specialist. After he returned from boot camp in June 2010, he resumed his studies at NCTC and played rugby with the UNT Rugby Club until the military activated him last December. By then, he already

knew UNT was the college he wanted to attend. “I really love UNT,” Davidson said. “I owe the rugby team to come back here and give the club and school my full eﬀort.” Davidson went to Djibouti, a small country in East Africa northwest of Somalia, with the 490th Civil Aﬀair Battalion in April. The battalion’s mission was to build relationships with local villages. Maj. Edward Palacios said Davidson carried himself so well that he was able to ﬁll a position that was three times his experience level. “He was always polish, cordial, well-educated and carried himself very well,” Palacios said. “He is the
incredibly useful tool for college students. He hopes the site will continue to expand and beneﬁt more users. According to ClassChain. com, the site has already made 8,475 connections between an unspeciﬁed number of students. “I’d like to see lots of people use the site and have fun with it – and actually not have the butterﬂies in their stomachs for the ﬁrst day of school – and even possibly for UNT to endorse it,” Stauﬀer said.
quintessential soldier.” Davidson then joined the French Desert Military Program, a 120-mile, 10-day hike over diﬃcult terrain in Djibouti. The program teaches French marines and U.S. service members desert survival skills. He became the 8,979th soldier to complete the training. Near the end of the intense hike, Davidson’s quick thinking and medical training kicked in when another soldier’s life was put in danger by heatstroke. By acting on his feet, Davidson was able to prevent a tragedy. In the blistering heat, a soldier began suﬀering from heat exhaustion. Davidson and others removed
the soldier’s clothes. Davidson gave the man his last bit of water, and stayed with him for two hours until evacuation arrived. Davidson and others removed the soldier’s clothes. Davidson gave the man his last bit of water, and stayed with him for two hours until evacuation arrived. Davidson said he only did what he thought anyone would do. He credited his high school athletic director for teaching him medical skills that come in handy in extreme heat. Since returning to North Texas in May, Davidson has been speaking in Washington, D.C., and at his former high school in Justin, where he lives, about the ordeal. Davidson uses past experiences
Thursday, September 6, 2012 email@example.com – from the problems he faced as an athletic director to his hesitation in choosing what to do with his life to his heroism in the military – to encourage young people to never stop helping others. In June, he gave the medal he received for his actions in Djibouti to his high school athletic director, Scott Fletcher. Davidson is still deciding whether to major in anthropology or hospitality management. He said there are soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan who deserve just as much recognition, and he is committed to bring those soldiers the honor and respect they deserve. Andrew Marshall, his rugby
coach, said Davidson has brought a calm intensity to practice and has matured as a player and a person in the last four years. Davidson hopes to get the UNT Rugby Club and Veteran Services Office more involved with the community. “In the Marine application, there’s a box at the end where they asked the applicant to check if they would trust their child with this individual in combat,” Palacios said. “I would trust him with my child.” Whether he’s going by Stevie D. or Sgt. Steven Davidson, this student and soldier’s humble attitude and desire to give back will always show.
UNT one of greenest colleges in U.S. EMILY BENTLEY Intern
For the third straight year, UNT has been recognized in the Princeton Review’s “Guide to 322 Green Colleges.” The Review credited UNT’s Green Initiative, which includes being one of the f irst major Texas universities to sign The American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment. Mendie Schmidt, assistant director of outreach for UNT Sustainability, noted the university’s four Leadership in Energy and Env ironmental Designcertif ied buildings, including the Life Sciences Complex, the Highland Street Parking Garage and the Business Leadership Building. UNT also boasts the only LEED platinum-certified athletic facility at Apogee Stadium, which uses wind power and energ y generated by students using elec-
tric athletic equipment. UNT has made a commitment that all new construction on campus will seek LEED certification. The Facilities Department is also seeking to retrofit older buildings on campus to make them more energy efficient. Sch m idt sa id U N T ha s spent the past 75 years building a name for itself as a leader in env ironmental research, but that the journey does not end there. Keeping in mind issues with limited fossil fuel and other environmental issues in Texas, Schmidt urged students to be environmentally conscious. “ Take advantage of public transportation, carpool with friends, turn off lights and unplug appliances,” she said. “These are all small ways that we can have a huge impact on our community and our world.” UNT continues to focus on becoming more sustainable with

recycle programs and new initiatives to conserve energy. Public affairs and community service sophomore Sydney Davis said individuals should do all they can to help. “To help UNT rise on the list of green colleges, students can recycle at home, on campus, and use less water,” Davis said. “You’re not only helping the environment, you’re also cutting spending costs for yourself. You don’t have to go out of your way to be environmentally friendly, just be smart.” While environmental problems are daunting, simple solutions are not, Schmidt said. With
new programs, new ideas and new technology, she said UNT students and facult y can look for ward to an even “greener” Mean Green. “I think we can expect UNT not only to continue to be listed in the Green College Review Guide, I think you’ll see our ranking rise every year,” Schmidt said. She said it was up to every student to keep UNT environmentally friendly. “These seem like big, insurmountable issues,” she said. “It is important to remember that small changes in your behavior can make a big difference.”

Senior Staff Writer After a yearlong search, UNT has selected Richard Nader as the permanent vice provost for international aﬀairs. Nader has served as the interim vice provost since July 2011, after his predecessor vacated the position in order to pursue an opportunity at Western Washington University. The quest for the new vice provost was extensive and drew about 50 applicants from around the world. A search committee was employed to screen the applicants, and only four were brought to campus for a full day of interviews. “I was lucky enough to prevail,” Nader said. “It feels great.” The role of the vice provost is, broadly, to tend and care for the international mission of UNT, he said. “There are several facets of that mission, one of which is making sure international students can come here and study,” he said. “We attract the best minds from around the world to come to UNT in both the under-

graduate and graduate programs.” Nader began his career at UNT in Sept. 2008, working in the Oﬃce of the Vice President for Research, where he started the ﬁrst research development oﬃce to help faculty in various areas of research. “It’s the oﬃce that helps faculty write proposals, market their
research and get funding for sponsored projects,” he said. Previously, Nader held the position of Director of the Institute for Pacific Asia at Texas A&M and was the head of numerous projects funded by the U.S. Department of State, Department of Education and National Science Foundation.
There are currently about 2,800 international students enrolled in classes at UNT, according to the UNT-International web page. With his background in research, Nader said he hopes to help the university fulﬁll its second bold goal: to become a global leader in public research.
Democrats appeal to Southern voters ATLANTA(MCT) — Democrats aren’t holding their convention in North Carolina this week because they love themselves some NASCAR. North Carolina was one of three Southern states to give its Electoral College votes to Barack Obama in 2008, and the party wants to consolidate those gains — an ambitious goal, if current polls accurately reﬂect the state of the race. Not that long ago, the South was cinder-block-solid for the Republican Party. The president, George W. Bush of Texas, was a Southerner. The majority leader of the U.S. Senate, Bill Frist of Tennessee, was a Southerner, and important committee chairmen throughout Congress were, too. Republican presidential candidates didn’t campaign hard in the South because its electoral votes were assured. But as oﬃcials in both parties try to map a road to electoral dominance
in the 21st century, they face a new reality: Those days are going, if not already gone. Demographic changes — namely, the rapidly expanding Hispanic population — and antipathy by many black voters toward the GOP could spell increasing trouble for a Republican Party that has not yet found a message that resonates with most minority voters. Some Republicans are sounding an alarm. “The demographics race, we’re losing badly,” U.S. Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., told the Washington Post. “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.” The percentage of white residents in Virginia, Florida and North Carolina — all won by Obama in 2008 — dropped from 2000 to 2010, U.S. Census ﬁgures show, with a corresponding increase in the percentage of black and Hispanic residents.
The Hispanic population in those states, while still small, is booming. It zoomed up by 36 percent in Florida, 74 percent in Virginia and 83 percent in North Carolina. Hispanic voters, like black voters, tend to cast their ballots for Democrats in national elections. There are some groups — older Cuban-Americans in the critical state of Florida are one notable example — that favor Republicans. But overall, Democrats consistently win about two-thirds of Hispanic votes. The overwhelming majority of black voters vote for Democrats in national elections. Obama, the nation’s ﬁrst black president, seems poised to capture nearly all their votes, despite the economic pain inflicted by the Great Recession. Despite pleas from GOP heavyweights such as U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and former Florida
Republican Gov. Jeb Bush, the party has resisted retooling its positions to appeal to a more diverse electorate. One example: Hispanic voters are keenly attuned to the immigration issue. Romney has opposed policies that would grant illegal immigrants a path to U.S. citizenship, arguing, as some other Republicans do, that they should leave the country ﬁrst and “get in line” for documents that would allow them to return legally. Illegal immigrants are not allowed to vote in the U.S., but Hispanic residents who understand their eﬀorts to live and work in this country can and do vote. Political observers say part of the problem those Hispanic voters have with the GOP is the tone of the party’s rhetoric on immigration. “When you insult voters, they are unlikely to vote for you,” said Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics.

Professor, students research Texas accents M ARLENE GONZALEZ Senior Staff Writer
People outside of Texas may think all Texans sound the same, but linguistics professor Patricia Cukor-Avila and three students conducted a research project showing that Texans think otherwise. Their research was presented at the Symposium About Language and Society-Austin Conference in April and will be published in the conference’s academic papers this fall. The research was also introduced at the Congress of the International Society for Dialectology and Geolinguistics in Vienna in July. “People outside of Texas have perceptions of Texans and how they speak,” Cukor-Avila said. “But it’s interesting that Texans have perceptions of other Texans.” Cukor-Avila said they surveyed 402 people asking people to point out on a map of Texas where they think people’s English sounds diﬀerent. Subjects were then asked to describe the accent. “‘Good ol’ boy,’ ‘howdy,’ ‘rural,’ ‘boots and jeans,’ these are the comments people wrote on the maps,” Cukor-Avila said. “So we put all of that in one category and called it ‘country.’ It’s called
‘keyword analysis.’” The researchers scoured cities across Texas, including Austin, El Paso, Houston, Amarillo and Lubbock. Brownsville and MidlandOdessa are two cities they intend to study next. So far, the group has funded its own eﬀorts, splitting the costs of travel and where they spent the night. However, they will soon receive a $500 grant from UNT to help cover the costs. Cukor-Av ila had initially assigned students in her linguistics course to study accents, creating a survey that would benefit the research they were working on. After the class ended, a few students continued working on the project last spring by doing in-the-ﬁeld work. “This kind of research has been done in other places, but it hadn’t been done in Texas,” Cukor-Avila said. “So I thought it would be a good idea for the students to get ﬁrsthand experience collecting data and then analyzing it, basically going through the steps that we do as professors or researchers, but they would learn it by doing it rather than reading about doing it.” Drawl and t wang are t wo common accent descriptions

Cowboy hats, spurs, belt buckles and bits will be in full supply this weekend at the Fourth Annual Western Heritage Cowboy Gathering and Trade Show taking place from Friday through Sunday at Denton’s Western Heritage Gallery. “Sometimes we have Western auctions,” event coordinator Peggy Schaﬀer said. “Sometimes we have maker’s exhibits and contests, but we always have a trade show, where people can bring their Western collections [and] their goods from guns to leather to Native American jewelry and art they’ve made to share, trade and sell.” Schaﬀer said the show is a big attraction for Western craftsmen from across the country and the world. About 2,000 people attended last year, many of whom had never been to Denton before, she said. “Craftsmen of all types come to Denton for this show to display their wares, to enter in contests, and that draws people to Denton,” she said. “Each year it gets a little bigger, and each year it is more and more widely attended.” Schaffer said the event helps boost the local economy as well. “They stay in hotels, eat in restaurants, see what a nice town it is, how much it has to oﬀer, see how young and vibrant it is,” she said. “Just a few days, and [they] realize it’s a good place to be.” This year’s event has several new additions, Schaﬀer said. “This year we have a dealer who is coming from South Dakota that

Blackwood and Cribbs are known as makers, meaning they make they make Western products such as bits, buckles and spurs. The show exposes attendees to the history of Western culture, Cribbs said. “This is how the whole country was started,” she said. “It’s our heritage, and it’s important to show people we haven’t lost the traditions, and there are still lots of cowboys out there working every day.” Brenda Thompson, an employee at the Weinhof Winery, which features wine at the event annually, said the show means a lot to the advocates of Western culture. “It’s important to the cowboy community and all of the artists who are involved,” she said. “Woodworkers, metalworkers, there’s some beautiful stuﬀ that they make.”

what a twang is.” Linguistics senior Zak Shelton’s interest in the project came from the perceptions people have about others, not just based on where they’re from or how they look, but how they sound. “You automatically make a judgment call, and that’s very subconscious,” Shelton said. “But what we’re trying to do is dig that up and link it to where those things are perceived. So much judgment is made on a sonic level when someone hears someone else’s dialect.” Geography professor Chetan Tiwari has been working on the technical side of the project. He creates heat maps of the data obtained in the Geographic Information System (GIS) software. “Once we had it [the data] in, we began making sense of it and looked at diﬀerent GIS tools that allowed us to combine all of the data,” Tiwari said. “Through digital analysis we are able to combine it into a singular map to see the patterns.” Cukor-Avila sent an abstract – a presentation of the research the group has conducted – to the American Dialect Society. They hope to hear from the society and attend its conference in January.

Susan Whitmer carries around a walkie-talkie tucked into a case knitted to look like a squid. She is the reference specialist at the Willis Library, but as the librarian on call she must be reached in an instant to help the other librarians. “When the Library Services Desk needs backup, they call me for reference assistance,” Whitmer said. “If they are overwhelmed, they’ll page me.” Staff Librarian Sabrina McKethan said that other than questions like, “Where is the bathroom?,” the reference librarians’ most-asked questions are about peer-reviewed scholarly journals. “Students look for peerreviewed scholarly journals, reviewed by people with doctorates in the ﬁeld,” McKethan said. Whitmer has been working at Willis Library for a year and just received her Master of Library and Information Science in August from UNT. Whitmer describes her job as being similar to an oﬃce manager. She checks important emails, prepares schedules and troubleshoots. “I help with all of the problems in the oﬃce,” Whitmer said. “Today our printer went down, so we had to get the person who handles the printer to come up and add toner.” David Campbell, the library’s reference coordinator, agrees that although Whitmer’s title is technically not oﬃce manager, she acts

2012 Mean Green Football scouting report SPORTS STAFF
Before the Mean Green plays its first home game against Texas Southern on Saturday, you’ll need to know what to expect and who you’ll see out on the field. The NT Daily Sports staff has compiled a detailed scouting report of the team. Here’s a breakdown of the entire team by position, along with one notable quote from a player who plays that position.
Redshirt junior quarterback Derek Thompson now has the experience of a full slate of games under his belt heading into this season. Even though the running game carried the brunt of the load last year, Thompson has shown he can limit the turnovers, throwing only six interceptions last year, while still being effective when throwing the ball. In the game against Louisiana State University, Thompson completed both of his touchdown passes to senior receiver Brelan Chancellor against one of the top defenses in the nation. With that being said, someone other than Chancellor will need to step up for the passing attack to be successful this year. Redshirt senior wide receiver Christopher Bynes and senior tight end Andrew Power will need to help lighten Chancellor’s load. Chancellor is clearly Thompson’s top target, and defenses will try to focus in and stop Chancellor from touching the ball. Power had 16 catches last year, but only one went for a touchdown. Even though he’s used for blocking schemes, UNT should take advantage of his 6 feet 5 inches frame in the red zone to help draw defenders away from Chancellor. They said it: “Marcus Smith at tight end [could be a dark horse this year]. He’s a guy that we can flex out at wide receiver. He’s fast, big, and he’s strong. He can do a lot of really good things for us this year,” Thompson said.

The Mean Green football team’s running back slot is a position by committee. Junior Brandin Byrd started as running back against No. 3 LSU and carried the ball 14 times. But redshirt freshman Antoinne Jimmerson and senior Jeremy Brown ran the ball against LSU eight times each. The trio, who gained 74 combined rushing yards in the first game, collectively has only 113 yards in their careers prior to this season. The running backs still need to get a feeling for carrying the ball in game situations. Talent level is high at running back, and growth is fostered by a competitive environment to get playing time. The best description for the position is unproven. The triumvirate faces the pressure of replacing the all-time leading rusher Lance Dunbar. Dunbar had 1,115 rushing yards and an additional 350 receiving yards last season. Byrd, Jimmerson and Brown can’t focus on filling Dunbar’s shoes. They have to find their own pairs. Involvement in the pass game, blocking and receiving gives the backs an immediate offensive value. If the running backs don’t get involved in the passing game, the offense could stagnate. Time – and an opponent who isn’t a national championship contender – will reveal North Texas’ run game capabilities. They said it: “Fans can expect consistency, and we’re trying to keep the tradition going that [Dunbar] left behind,” Brown said. “We’re going to keep running hard. You can never replace [Dunbar.] He meant so much to the program, and all we can do is compete.”
Head coach Dan McCarney does not believe in moral victories, but his offensive line may deserve one after the LSU game. The Mean Green line stood though against LSU by allowing no sacks, committing no penalties and not missing assignments. The starting offensive line for the Mean Green consists of tackles sophomore Antonio Johnson and senior Coleman Feeley. The guards are sophomore Cyril Lemon, sophomore Mason Y’Barbo and the anchor of the line, senior center Aaron Fortenberry. The mix of youth and experience gives the Mean Green the ability to instantly succeed while preparing for the future. On the defensive line, UNT has to replace Brandon Akpunku. Junior defensive end Aaron Bellazin has the skills to constantly rush opposing quarterback to force an intentional grounding in the first game against LSU. Bellazin showed explosiveness and has a great nose for the football. Sophomore Daryl Mason and junior Ryan Boutwell are two highly talented players that are going to need to step up and make plays for this thin defensive line. If both can get healthy at the same time, along with Bellazin and Obi, the UNT defensive line will give other Sun Belt offensive lines fits. They said it: “Physically we have gotten a lot better, bigger on both sides of the ball, and our communication has improved as we’ve matured together,” Lemon said.
For as long as UNT fans can remember, the UNT defense has never been something to praise. Last year, the defense showed incredible promise, and the linebacker core was literally right in the middle of the group’s success. Led by junior Zachary Orr this season, the linebackers have grown into the role of the defense’s foundation. Watching this group play is like watching a wrap-up drill in training camp. No shoulder tackles, no pointless ballstripping attempts, just good fundamental tackling. In the secondary, the Mean Green football program is one of four teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision that doesn’t have a senior starting. With no returning starters, UNT’s passing defense got a fresh start. The roster overhaul at the cornerback and safety positions is a plus for the Mean Green. Last season’s defense gave up 3,190 passing yards over 12 games. UNT ranked No. 104 in passing defense out of the 120 teams in NCAA Division I football. Junior strong safety Marcus Trice, sophomore free safety Lairamie Lee, cornerbacks redshirt freshman Zac Whitfield and junior Hilbert Jackson rarely left the field during Saturday’s game. They said it: “It’s our physicality and playmaking that we thrive on. Either it be the big hit, interceptions or just being leaders for the team,” Orr said. “Of course there is always room to improve in getting off the ball faster and shedding blocks.”
Both senior punter Will Atterberry and junior kicker Zach Olen agree that the “legs” of the team can be a stronghold for the Mean Green through the 2012 season. Olen credits his and Atterberry’s experience as the main asset of the kicking squad but added that he needed to be more consistent than he was last year in order for the team to succeed. Olen only converted 50 percent of his field goal attempts last year, going eight for 16, but registered two 52-yard field goals. He has yet to attempt a field goal this season. Last season, Atterberry punted 74 times for 3,218 yards, and is off to another quick start this year with eight punts for 327 yards after Saturday’s bout with LSU. The only area of concern in the special teams unit is the punt coverage team. The team still needs some work after its performance against LSU. The Tigers were able to run back a 70-yard punt for a touchdown. Before that, the squad let a 76-yard touchdown get by, but an LSU penalty nullified the score. Chancellor will be a threat returning kicks just as he was last year. His speed and elusiveness will make kick returns a “can’t miss” sequence, since he has the ability to score at any time. They said it: “We communicate pretty well,” Atterberry said. “If he sees something I’m doing wrong that he knows I need to fix, he’ll let me know. If I see something he’s doing wrong, I’ll try to help him fix it. I’m his holder, so a lot of his success depends on how I do and how I hold the ball.”

Defeating Windham, Mean Green a tall task Volleyball AUSTIN SCHUBERT Staff Writer
PHOTO BY ZAC SWITZER/ SENIOR STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER
The swim team practice Sept. 5 was a special one. The Mean Green held a 200-yard medley relay against each other, with teams split up by region of origin.
Canada team wins Olympic-style race Swimming DAVE CARSON Intern In the Pohl Recreation Building, echoing chants of “Go Canada,” “USA, USA” and “Yeah, Europe” filled the practice area. Instead of having his athletes hold a normal practice meet against one another, head swimming coach Joe Dykstra decided to change things up a bit. In an Olympic-style format, Dykstra split up his UNT team into four teams based off region of origin for the Inaugural International UNT swim meet. Team Canada, Team Europe, Team USA and the Texas Freshmen team were all formed to compete in a one race, 200-yard medley at the end of practice. “The ladies were really excited that they could compete with each other.” Dykstra said. “This is good for the team to let loose and build team unity.” Team Canada was represented by freshman Michelle Balcaen, junior Natalie Jakopin, senior Joanna Wozniak and sophomore Krista Rossum. The Europe team consisted of sophomore Mona Groteguth, junior Sarida Muslow, freshman Bianca Bocsa and freshman Jana Burkard swimming the freestyle. Senior Brynn Lewis, sophomore Sarah
Manning, senior Becca Ploetz and senior Catia Weickgenant were part of Team USA, while the Texas Freshmen team had Zoe James, Gaby Colunga, Ashley Payne and Mackenzie Childs. The swimmers took their marks for the 200-yard medley relay, each swimming one leg of the race. Once the race began, Team Europe hurried out to a quick start behind Groteguth, putting the pressure on the other teams to keep up. “I knew I was swimming against [Groteguth,] and I had to hold my own and let my team pick me up,” Jakopin said. Groteguth was one of the four Mean Green swimmers to swim in the Olympic trials this past summer. Team Europe led after the second leg of the race by a narrow margin over Team Canada until Rossum caught up with the leader and began to pull away from the pack. Wozniak was able to use the lead Rossum gained for Team Canada to win the race. “This was the most nervous I have been in a long time, even though this is just us swimming against each other,” Woznaik said. The final times were Team Canada winning with 1:51.00 minutes, team Europe in 1:51.40 minutes, team USA 1:54.20 in minutes and the Texas Freshmen finished in 1:55.60 minutes.
Courtney Windham can’t be missed when watching a UNT volleyball game. The junior middle blocker stands 6-foot-3-inches tall and tries to make herself appear even taller. On the court, she’ll stand up straight with her hands above her head, casting an ominous shadow on her opponents. “It’s an intimidation factor,” she said. This season, the Cypress, Texas, native has led the volleyball team to the best start in program history, 7-2, and two tournament victories. At the North Texas Invitational, Windham earned MVP honors. She’s currently second on the team with 108 kills on a .342 hitting percentage. Although Windham is now the centerpiece of the UNT attack, her collegiate volleyball career didn’t start off as she had hoped. After an impressive high school career in which she earned two-time All-American honors at Cypress Creek High School, the wiry-framed Windham moved on to Baylor once she graduated in 2010. Despite going into college as a highly touted recruit, she hardly played as a freshman, only appearing in two matches all season. On top of that, her father, Tom Windham, who spends much time away from the rest of the Windham family due to his job in Dallas, couldn’t see her play often. Both factors convinced her to transfer to UNT in 2011. “I needed change,” Windham said. “I wanted my dad to be able to see me play, and UNT made me feel needed. It was the best decision I ever made.” Once at UNT, Windham slowly began to raise her level of competition on the court. She saw action in every 2011 match and was third on the team with 250 kills. However, head coach Ken Murczek still shuffled her around the court, searching for her best position. Eventually, Murczek tabbed

She’s currently second on the team with 108 kills on a .342 hitting percentage. her as the team’s starting middle blocker, where she has excelled so far this season. “Courtney has matured tremendously as a person since she’s arrived here,” Murczek said. “She felt like she had something to prove, and her play has exploded.” Although her specialty is middle blocker, the 21-year-old said she doesn’t care what position she plays. “I’m just happy to be playing,” Windham said. “It doesn’t matter where it is on the court as long as I’m contributing to the team’s
success.” Off the court, Windham loves fine arts. The communications major enjoys drawing and painting in her free time to relieve stress. She also worked behind the scenes in theater during high school. “She’s always been into arts and theater,” Tom Windham said. “It helps her with her energy and sense of humor out on the court.” If the volleyball team hopes to capture its first conference championship since 1995, it will be on the tall shoulders of Windham.

“I don’t plan to go out at night, or I go with a friend. On the dates, they usually seem to be at night so if I have a class I’ll have a friend walk home with me.”
“I like to read it, and I like to talk to my friends about it. I really appreciate it, because some people might feel really comfortable just walking around. It keeps people aware of what’s going on.”
“When it’s next to the college and I have class in the evening, I always have my phone on or try to go with friends so I’m not alone. If I am [alone], I either call someone or pretend like I’m talking.”

Nod: The Women of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions
We’ve seen a lot of excitement over the last few weeks regarding the speeches, spectacles and “scandals” – both real and imagined – that constitute a typical American political convention. This year, the concluded Republican National Convention and the in-progress Democratic National Convention seem to have both represented their respective sides of the aisle with bombastic aplomb, but it is the opinion of the Edboard that the respective speeches of Ann Romney and First Lady Michelle Obama were the high points of each convention.
Both women delivered, with concise diction and purpose, a defense of why each of their husbands deserves to win the 2012 election. While Romney focused on the personal struggles of marriage, motherhood and serious illness, the First Lady spoke on the economic hardships shared by her and President Obama during the early years of their marriage and their eventual rise to success. Despite the varying choices in delivery, both speeches suggested to the crowd that the candidates of each party understand the struggles, hardships and great triumphs of the American experience and hold the belief that better days are ahead. Although the leadership ability of each candidate does not hinge upon the speaking
ability of their wives, the uplifting and inspired delivery from the women of these conventions serves to remind us of the great dignity and basic humanity of the presidential office, and the Edboard would like to give both women a resounding nod. Shake: Cecilia Giménez, harbinger of the “monkey God” The Sanctuary of Mercy Church near the town of Borja, Spain, is one of the many historic churches in the province of Zaragozaharb. However, recent news hype has elevated a simple painting by artist Elías García Martínez to a global phenomenon. Cecilia Giménez, an elderly local “amateur
artist,” noticing that Martinez’ more than 100 year-old fresco painting on the church wall was beginning to deteriorate with age, took it upon herself to restore the piece to its former glory. However, in the process the woman managed to completely paint over the original piece and replaced the face of Jesus Christ with what appears to be a stylized caricature of a moaning orangutan. The woman claimed to have permission for her artistic endeavors and didn’t fully understand why anyone was complaining about her “restoration” job. The Edboard is certainly capable of forgiving an honest mistake, but the egregious disaster of this painted hatchet job is difficult to ignore, and Giménez deserves at least one shake.
Coach Students need to McCarney: Team enjoy the little spirit critical things I can’t tell you how excited I am to begin another year as the head football coach at the University of North Texas! The 2011 season was a great sign of things to come for Mean Green football. We set an all-time attendance record in our f irst year at Apogee Stadium, and our 4-2 home record was the best since 2004. All of that was due in large part to the fantastic support from the North Texas student body. This Saturday we have our first home game of the season against Texas Southern, and we will be trying to win our first home-opener since 2006. We need your help in getting this season off to a good beginning and helping us improve our home record to 5-2 since I took over. North Texas legend, NFL Hall of Famer and Super Bowl champion “Mean” Joe Greene will be our honorary team captain, and we want to show him how much wonderful support we have from our students. I can’t tell you enough how hard this team has prepared for this season. They have done everything we have asked of them, in the classroom, in the community and on the practice field. We had the highest team GPA this program has had in a long time, and 64 of our players earned higher than a 3.0 this summer, including 29 who earned a 4.0. The attitude and camaraderie among this team is as good as I have ever seen in 35 years as a college football coach. We intend to keep building a great connection bet ween this football program and the students, facult y and staff on campus. I can tell you from experience that there is no better feeling for a football team than the sense of support from the student
body. The environment that is created inside a stadium begins and ends with its student body, and we need you to build that atmosphere. We have begun the process of turning this program into one that is special. It is a reciprocal relationship – we need you to help us make this program better, and we will help you by developing a team and a program that you can be proud of. It all starts at home, in Apogee Stadium, and it all starts this Saturday. Help us be special! Go Mean Green!
T h e Me a n G r e e n o p e n s u p McCarney’s second season as head coach Saturday against Texas Southern in Apogee Stadium at 6 p.m. In McCarney’s first year as the head coach, the team won five games, including four at home.

Once every four years, it seems like the world temporarily goes insane. The presidential race pushes television, newspapers and social media to evolve into political battlegrounds. More opinions are presented than facts, and more arguments are pitched than real progress. You’ve probably removed a few friends from your social feeds who constantly bash the far left or the far right and tried to ignore the so-called experts who make comments for no other purpose than to heap kindling on the fire of controversial issues. I am no expert on the political landscape of our country, but I do know that I’m certainly glad to be here. For only a moment, drown out the apocalyptic end-of-America hyperbole and look around you. Whether you’re sitting in the brandnew Apogee Stadium, one of the conveniently placed bus stops for the Denton County Transit Authority or a delicious campus dining hall, it’s your choice to be there. It’s your choice to progress in your education at the University of North Texas, and it’s certainly your choice to be happy. Spilled coffee, a bad test grade, having a car accident or breaking up with a significant other weighs in on our happiness. Though we might be discouraged by our perceived lack of accomplishments by the end of the day – for example, we can’t single-handedly stop world hunger – this doesn’t mean we can’t improve our outlook. You may argue that happiness is difficult to measure. While I agree, sociology professor Ruut Veenhoven gives a good definition: “Happiness is defined as the degree to which someone
evaluates positively the overall quality of his or her present ‘life as a whole.’” How good is your life, when you look at it objectively? Do you ever consider what you think of your life as you view it? It’s as simple as performing some self-evaluations. Take time to evaluate your current score in the video game of life. Is it constantly interrupted by spilled coffee, a bad test grade, car accident, overdue bill, breakup or any of the problems we face daily? If so, should these things really be the biggest factors in your happiness? I’m not saying you should stop having strong convictions, but it couldn’t hurt to slow down a little and enjoy your life one day at a time. If daily challenges are bringing you down, start living your life like an arcade game: as long as you’re breathing, you can put another coin in the slot and continue the battle for another day.
