Campus Climate Survey results revealed

Rams lose 39-37 page 16

On Tuesday, Sept. 28, Rankin and Associates presented the results of the Campus Climate Survey conducted in the Spring 2010 semester. The presentations, led by Dr. Sue Rankin, began by describing the reasons for facilitating the Campus Climate Survey, followed by a description of the four phases of the assessment. Phase I was the creation of focus groups in January 2010, which assisted in the construction of the survey questions. Phase II lasted from February to April 2010 and consisted of the creation of the survey. Many drafts were reviewed every two weeks with the Campus Climate Intervention Team. Phase II continued into April with the facilitation of the survey itself. There were 113 questions on the survey, which was available online or in penciland-paper format. The analysis

of the results was Phase III, which occurred from May to July 2010. Finally, Phase IV was the presentation of the results to the campus community. Of the 4,818 individuals who responded to the survey, which makes up approximately 30% of the campus community. Of these respondents, 85% were students, 9% were faculty, and 6% were staff. Undergraduate students made up 31% of the respondents, while graduate students made up 26%. There were 800 students of color that responded, and about 3,200 student responses were by white students. Approximately 2,880 students were women, and 1,152 were men. Results showed that 84.6% of the respondents did not have a disability that substantially affected major life activities. Of those that responded, 95.9% of students and 94.7% of employees that responded were U.S. citizens.

Exactly 14 transgender individuals responded to the survey. Overall, the people who were most uncomfortable with the campus climate were people of color, LGBQ individuals, and women. The reports showed that 13% of individuals that responded reported experiencing harassment, with the leading causes of harassment based on gender and race. The majority of these expe-

Time not wasted at Res-Life sponsored Booze News program By Sarah Gurgal Copy Editor

The amount of rain water present in West Chester was sure to quench even the thirstiest of Thursdays last week on the 22nd. Those in attendance of the “Booze News” program staged by Residence Life and Housing Services staff members were sure to wake up hangover free the next morning; not only because of the water saturating their bodies, but the amount of useful information saturating their minds. Resident Assistants from various buildings conducted the “Booze News” program, providing interactive educational sessions for people to attend and learn about the dangers of drugs and alcohol, their use and abuse on college campuses, and preventative measures that can be taken to ensure for a safer environment. Adale Sholock, director of the Women’s Center, along with Dee Donato, communication outreach coordinator from the Crime Victim’s Center (CVC) of Chester County, provided several shocking statistics in regard to sexual assault. They informed students that alcohol is the most common date rape drug. In fact, 90% of all sexual assaults in college involve

alcohol. “Unfortunately it [alcohol] is part of our culture,” Donato expressed. “Unfortunately so many younger people are starting to utilize it more than they ever have before.” Another important piece of information revealed was that eight times out of ten the victim of a sexual assault is familiar with their attacker. Unfortunately, only two of every ten people report being sexually assaulted. Sholock pointed out that “It’s really important to know that when someone is intoxicated, their capacity to give consent is diminished.” She also wanted to make it clear that people need to know where to get help. The Women’s Center and CVC hope that people utilize their services, which are all anonymous, and that the victims realize they should never feel at fault and prevent themselves from reporting the situation. Another campus resource at the program was Health and Wellness Center alcohol educator MaryJane Rogan. Rogan stressed the importance of making a phone call if a person ever felt as though a friend was in a sig-

The full committee will reconvene on December 6 to discuss the suggestions and themes that will be created. These themes will be forwarded to the president’s cabinet, and the president will announce initiatives in the early spring semester. Skip Hudson, director of the Office of Multicultural Affairs, and Jackie Hodes, the Assistant to the Vice President of Student Affairs and LGBTQ Services Coordinator, gave a few words after Dr. Rankin’s presentation. Questions were answered about the data and the future of the

nificant amount of danger due to intoxication or overdose. Students were informed of different signs to look for when evaluating the situation (vomiting, passed out, irregular/ slow breathing, clammy skin) and were advised to intervene in a situation if they notice a significant loss in a person’s motor coordination. “The goal is to get people to pick up the phone and make that phone call when they have that moment of concern,” Rogan commented about her “Drunk or Dying?” program. The Department of Public Safety, along with Security and Police Divisions, was a great contributor to the second annual “Booze News.” During an interactive educational session with several officers, students were given precautionary measures to take so that they are aware of their surroundings. Students were advised to not only place Public Safety’s phone number in their cell phones, but also ICE (In Case of Emergency) contacts. ICE contacts such as a parent, relative, or friend nearby, could be used by Public Safety in order to get in touch with someone who has lost their cell

phone. Members of the division also suggested that students check with Public Safety for lost personal belongings. The most important message stressed to students was to have a game plan for where they are going and with whom, It was also suggested to make sure somebody such as a roommate knows their whereabouts. Lieutenant Ray Stevenson made the comparison of pre-gaming and pre-planning. “Part of the pre-gaming is the pre-planning,” he said. “Knowing what you’re going to do, who you’re going to do that with, is important.” Sergeant Matt Paris and K-9 Officer Piper were also in attendance to speak with students about substance abuse on campus during their session entitled “Join Us in the Land of Reality Because Drugs ARE HERE.” Sergeant Paris explained a little bit about investigations as well as Officer Piper’s role in these investigations. There was also an array of drug paraphernalia available for students to view. Another interactive session that supplied very helpful information on the topic of judicial documentation was available for students to attend. Judge Mark Bruno explained the process of receiving a citation for underage drinking from start to finish during the session “I Just Got Busted for Underage Drinking… Now WHAT?!” He explained that upon receiving a citation, the student has the option to plead guilty or not guilty. If the student chooses to plead guilty, they would lose their license for 90 days and have to pay a $300 fee for a first offense. If the student decides to plead not guilty, they would have to set up a hearing in front of the court and the officer who issued the citation

would have to prove his case. In this situation, the defendant could have an attorney at his/her side. “Sometimes the kids learn,” Bruno pointed out after being

asked about how well the message sets in with people when it comes to losing their license and encountering the fines. “But I’ve seen kids four, five, six times for the same charge, too.” Judge Bruno expressed his interest in participating in the session because he believes that “There should be more kids who want to be at these programs and want to learn. If we would be more proactive in doing these types of things and have the students participate it may make an impact.” Attendance for the program was not affected by the rain and, although students walked away without the promised BBQ food, they left with knowledge to better their lives and help the lives of those they care for along with stomachs full of food from local eateries such as Pita Pit and Papa Johns. Commenting on the event, RA Ciara Pagan from Allegheny Hall said “Even though we were rained out we definitely had a great turnout. People participated and our presenters held their ground and definitely answered a lot of questions for people who didn’t know where to go and ask for the information.” Sarah Gurgal is a second year exercise science major.

Facebook discovered by more than just one face?

Mark Zuckerburg, now 26, created Facebook in his Harvard dormitory when he was just 19 years old. With 500 million users, Facebook has become the world’s largest social networking site. The site started on Harvard’s campus, where students would have to log in with their school e-mail address. However, getting to this point

Just months before the site boomed in popularity on his campus, he was almost expelled for hacking into Harvard’s computers and for creating a site that rated students’ looks called “Facemash.” He was reported to have written in his online journal “The Kirkland Facebook is open on my computer desktop and some of these people have pretty horrendous Facebook pics.

They believe that he stole their idea, although many disagree. “I worked with the expectation that I would be included in the overall development of the project but found that I was being subjected to demands on my time without truly being made a part of the development team,” Zuckerburg wrote in an email to Cameron Winklevoss, one of the three filing the lawsuit. They may have thought of creating a social networking site, but Zuckerburg is the one to pull everything together with his own creative genius. Zuckerburg has been offered $1 billion from Yahoo to buy the company, but he denied it. He has been named “the smartest person to come out of Harvard” and “the nation’s brightest young philanthropist.” While appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Zuckerburg announced his more than generous donation of $100 million to the Newark, New Jersey school system. Unfortunately after this donation, he was accused of trying to save his reputation. A Facebook spokesman, Larry Yu, said that he was not trying to seize control of his image. He is just trying to better the world, a little bit at a time. Although Zuckerburg keeps his own life private, his business is so unique and successful due to open communication between all corners of the world. “I’m trying to make the world a more open place,” explains Zuckerburg in his bio on his own, personal Facebook.

Bits and Bobs

Well hello, West Chester! How was your weekend? I’ve heard homecoming was quite….enthralling? Congratulations to both LGBTQA and InterGreek Council for winning first place in the parade and as Homecoming royalty (respectively)! Though I wasn’t there to see it, I’m sure it was a beautiful purple-and-gold-filled day. Now, my absence from Homecoming Weekend was not meant as a lack of school spirit. I simply know how rowdy it gets all over campus due to the various activities, and I chose to distance myself from it (for two reasons):

1 - I’m a very socially quiet person, and large crowds are just not that ap pealing to me. I’m also kind of tiny and get knocked around everywhere, which is only advantageous in human pinball. 2 - I’ve successfully managed to spread myself too thin academically. The combination of courses I signed up for this semester should probably not have been attempted. Therefore, I spent most of my homecoming weekend reading about Ken Kesey, book history in the Arab world and running through Italian vocabulary.

I’m perfectly fine rooting for WCU from my apartment, or waiting until the next day to find out who placed in the Homecoming parade. So again, congratulations to all of the organizations who participated in any event over the course of the celebrations, and I hope all you freshmen/transfers let loose and got caught up in the Ram Spirit! ------ Next, I’d like to congratulate West Chester and its students for sticking through all the messy weather last week. This is the time of year in West Chester where the ground will not be properly dry again until April, and I took last week as a warning. I don’t know the exact number, but we received - a LOT - of rain last school week due to various dying stages of tropical storms (thank goodness for the sun on Homecoming). There was a good three inches of rain in front of my stoop Friday morning. However, throughout the downpours and violent winds, I saw a surprising amount of students STILL ATTENDING CLASSES. I seem shocked? But of course! Every other year, when the campus is thrown into swamp-like conditions, I’ve seen attendance dwindle down past the half-way point in every one of my classes. This year, far less students skipped due to ‘inclement weather conditions,’ a really motivating sight to a senior’s eyes. I’ve never seen the point in skipping classes due to anything less than illness or some freak accident where you’re stranded in Mumbai - there’s far too much work missed in each class period, and I’m not going to pay thousands of dollars per class to nap and miss out on one of my unexcused absences that I could need later on in the semester. Did you also know that some colleges (not too far away, nevertheless unnamed) actually closed due to the weather? Perhaps there were some additional pipe problems or other issues, but when I received a text message from my friend at ??? University saying his school closed because of rain, I laughed. So great job, WCU! Let’s see if we can continue this throughout the rest of the semester (I’m anxious to see how many people stay home during the first snowfall)! ------ Finally, I’d like to comment on all of the Quad SWAG we’ve received lately. It’s a little known fact that various editors of the paper are sent CDs, books, projects and other press release kits in hopes that we will find writers to create reviews or awareness articles on these objects. In fact, we have mounds of CDs that we would love to have taken away (our problem is finding an audience that is willing to listen to some of the artists we’ve gained collections of). In honor of this, the Quad has created a Top Ten list of items we’ve received in our office over the course of the last few years. Check out the list in the Entertainment section, on page 12. peace to you, TjT Editor-in-Chief

Letters to the Editor

To the Editor, Thank you so much for your columns last week on food issues. I have been a vegetarian for five years (I’m 25 now), and I’ve been gluten-free for five months. It has been next to impossible to stay adequately nourished while on campus. To their credit, the cafeteria staff will prepare gluten-free meals on request, but I’m not one to know in advance exactly when and what I want to eat. Lindsay’s Garden is nothing but a variation on the same boring brown rice and vegetables, with rotating sauces and meat substitutes which are never GFfriendly. I could be wrong, but I haven’t found any GF snacks in Larry’s Market or Ram’s Head other than potato chips. Starbucks has these delicious raw granola bars, but they’re $3.95 each. I’ve blown all of my flex dollars already. Sorry to go on and on, but it’s so frustrating and I’m glad to know someone else feels the same. I’ve considered going back to a “regular” diet many times. I may have no choice but to, given the financial strain. -Tracy, West Chester student To the Editor, As someone who has been living with celiac disease for a few years now, I was pleased to see your article this week about being gluten-free on campus. I, too, have decided to live in an apartment as there are no real safe options for students on my own campus. Slipping up even a little with food hurts so much, and I don’t trust the university to be as careful as I need. This isn’t something I do because of religion or ethics. Eating gluten destroys my intestines. This is a matter of life or very near death, and there are not enough options to match the serious nature of my situation. This is not as obvious to others as a peanut allergy or some sort of issue that gives someone a visually measurable sickness; my sickness is inside, and this shouldn’t make it any less important to the educational institution I pay countless thousands of dollars to every year. Even in public, it’s hard to trust supermarkets or restaurants. -Amy Chen, Syracuse University student To the Editor, I am concerned over the number of references to and articles on “The Human Centipede” that were in this issue of your paper. This is a godless movie that should never have been made. Publishing this does not make good journalism. It cheapens your product. -Reggie Drummond

Educational blunders

Anonymous

Special to the Quad

I am a secondary education major. I go to classes where we are paying good money to be shown how to teach and interact with students. In theory, this is a much needed part of my college schooling. I was initially excited to finally be able to learn what to do with students and how to teach them. The issue I have and the reason I am writing is the scheduling of these classes. All my classes this semester were offered in just one section, once a week, three hours, probably so that we can have hours during the day to go and observe. Three hour classes are my least favorite of all scheduled class slots, though I usually end up taking one a semester out of necessity. Taking all three hour classes has been a challenge that I would strongly urge anyone to stay away from, one which I would try at all costs to prevent from having to do again. In these three hour classes we are given many articles and books to read, and papers to write, under the guise of having to make up time lost since we are in a three hour section of the course. Yet in all the classes I have taken which met more than once a week, we’ve always done less work, comparatively, than in any of the three hour classes I’ve taken concurrently or otherwise. Time, the professor insists, is being lost, but I beg to disagree. I read so much for each class that all the information blends together. I have actu-

Celebrate national public lands day By Mike Matz

Pew Environment Group

Millions travel to our national forests, parks and wilderness areas each year, with visitation in July 2010 to Yellowstone National Park marking an all-time high. What some may not realize is that each of us- every citizen of the United States- owns a stake in approximately 650 million acres of the nation’s lands. In effect, the property deed for almost one-third of our country lists the American people as owners. We’d better take care of it. On Sept. 25, the congressionally chartered National Environmental Education Foundation will oversee National Public Lands Day, to commemorate our mutually owned acreage and to inspire us to visit and appreciate these places. But the event is not only a celebration, it’s an opportunity to take care of what we own, just as we mow our yards, rake leaves or tend our gardens. True, 650 million acres is a lot to look after. And one day simply isn’t enough, even with all of us pitching in and giving back to our sources of camping, fishing, hiking and hunting. That’s why we hire dedicated people in the National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S.

Fish and Wildlife Service and the Bureau of Land Management to help us care for it. Year round, these stewards administer the vast and varied landscape in the public interest, based on guiding laws such as the Wilderness Act of 1964. Over this past summer, while many of us vacationed in our parks and wilderness, officials from the Obama administration toured the country, visiting small towns and big cities, to hear firsthand what Americans want for the future of our public lands. In places from Albuquerque to Concord and Missoula to Orlando, people shared their ideas. This effort, termed “America’s Great Outdoors listening tour,” will culminate in November with a report and recommendations to President Obama, based on lessons learned about how best to be good stewards of our public land. It’s a big job, and an important one. Not only are we, and our public stewards, taking care of places like the Grand Canyon or the Everglades today, we’re also trying hard to make sure we leave them in good shape for future Americans. President Teddy Roosevelt said, “The nation behaves well if it treats its natural resources as assets

which it must turn over to the next generation increased, and not impaired, in value.” According to historian Douglas Brinkley, Roosevelt believed that “saving natural wonders, wildlife species, timberlands and diverse habitats was a patriotic endeavor.” Inspired by citizen involvement from the ground up, our elected representatives and senators in Congress can continue carrying out that duty. They are working on legislation, which could be enacted this year, to protect an additional 2 million acres, across more than a dozen states, as wilderness, national monuments, conservation areas and recreation areas. These legislative measures are backed by hunters and anglers, business owners, city councilors and county commissioners. They are championed by member of both parties. We can bequeath to future generations spectacular wonders with evocative names such as the Pioneer Mountains in Montana, Gold Butte in Nevada, Horse Heaven in Oregon and the Cherokee National Forest in Tennessee. If we succeed, we fulfill an American tradition, providing special places to enjoy on this National Public Lands Day and those that will be celebrated by our children and grandchildren.

Sex, Drugs, and Magic By: Matthew Boyd Special to The Quad

The Magicians to Harry Potter is, as one review put it, like comparing “a shot of Irish whiskey to a glass of weak tea.”

aidanmoher.com

Mix fantasy themes from “Harry Potter”, and “The Chronicles of Narnia”- add sex, drugs, and violence- and you have Lev Grossman’s 2009 New York Times best-selling novel “The Magicians.” In “The Magicians,” Grossman uses compelling, descriptive writing technique and controversial themes to tell the story of a young man whose life is changed when he discovers that he has been selected for enrollment into an elite college of magic. While the basic synopses of the stories sound similar - magicians living in secret among regular humans, and attending schools for magic - comparing “The Magicians” to Harry Potter is, as one review put it, like comparing “a shot of Irish whiskey to a glass of weak tea.” Humorous, action packed, emotional, and intense, “The Magicians” is anything but a children’s tale; rather, Grossman’s debut novel uses adult themes to deliver a realistic “what if” depiction of

John Lennon at 70? We can only imagine... By: Randy Lewis LA Times

Fourteen years after Pete Townshend dismissed the very idea of growing up when he wrote "Hope I die before I get old," a 40-year-old John Lennon sang a very different tune. "I can hardly wait to see you come of age," he sang in 1980 to his then-5-year-old son, Sean, unabashedly anticipating the future. And to his wife, Yoko Ono, he borrowed a sentiment from poet Robert Browning and crooned "Grow old with me / The best is yet to be ... whatever fate decrees, we will see it through." Fate, however, had something other than old age in store for Lennon, who died at the hands of a crazed fan just a few months after recording those songs and many others that signaled the start of a new chapter in the exBeatle's life. "It's hard to believe he would be 70," Lennon's friend Elton John said last week. "It's hard to believe he missed out on the computer, on Twitter. I wonder what he would have made of it all? I have a feeling he would have grabbed and run with it. John Lennon, who gave so much; he would still be at the forefront." Three decades after his death, in some respects he is. The approach of what would have been Lennon's 70th birthday on Oct. 9 brings with it a raft of special commemorations, recordings, films, books and live performances that indicate Lennon's hold on the world's imagination is as strong as ever. "He, more than so many artists, truly just bared his soul," said Robert Santelli, executive director of downtown L.A.'s

Grammy Museum, which on Monday opens an exhibit, "John Lennon, Songwriter," focusing on his musical legacy. "He shared his demons, his weaknesses, his joys. ... As a songwriter, he looked into the mirror and what he saw, he put in his songs. That takes courage." EMI and Capitol Records will give Lennon's post-Beatles solo catalog a major sonic upgrade with remastered versions of all his albums, which are being released Tuesday individually and in an 11-CD "John Lennon Signature Box" full of extras and bonus tracks. The label also is putting out a new double CD/ DVD greatest-hits set ("Power to the People: The Hits") and a four-CD box set ("Gimme Some Truth") that samples a broader cross section of his solo career, broken down into four themed discs. PBS makes Lennon an honorary American by including him in its "American Masters" series by way of a new two-hour documentary, "LennoNYC," slated to air Nov. 22 and focusing on his and Ono's years living in New York. The Grammy Museum hosts an advance screening Monday. The American Cinematheque is wrapping up a full weekend of Lennon-related films including the Los Angeles premiere of "Nowhere Boy," director Sam Taylor Wood's exploration of Lennon's pre-Beatles days in Liverpool as a member of the Quarrymen, whose surviving members were scheduled to be on hand with Wood and actor Aaron Johnson. Various cities are hosting birthday vigils and celebra-

tions, including a gathering Saturday at noon in Hollywood outside Capitol Records at Lennon's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His first wife, Cynthia, and their son, Julian, will unveil a peace monument in his hometown of Liverpool on Saturday. Ono will spend that day in Reykjavik, Iceland, performing with the Plastic Ono Band at a peace concert, lighting the Imagine Peace Tower in his memory and burying a time

what life would be like if magic, and schools for magic, actually existed. The novel blends fantasy with contemporary realities of young-adulthood; not for the “faint of heart,” readers will find descriptions of magic, monsters and demons on the same page as alcohol, sex and cocaine. As mentioned above, the story begins with the main character leaving his friends and family as he discovers that he is part of a small minority of the human population that has the ability to use magic. Without revealing too much of the plotline, the novel chronicles the ascent of a boy into manhood, following him through his time at the “Brakebills Academy for Magic” as well as his adventures after, and details the relationships, conflicts, temptations, betrayalsand horrors- that come with his new life.

While its status as a “New York Times Best Seller” would imply popularity, “The Magicians” has, for some reason, gained little recognition in the mainstream media- an error that requires correction, as the novel’s raw and realistic story telling combined with themes of fantasy and adventure make it a book that can appeal to almost anyone. While references to “magic” might turn away potential readers, it shouldn’t. This book isn’t some “soft” or “nerdy” fantasy novel. If you haven’t heard of “The Magicians” yet, which is probably the case, give it a chance; Grossman’s book is arguably one of the best works of fiction published in the past year and once you start reading it, you will find it difficult to stop.

Ken Sharp's "Starting Over: The Making of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's 'Double Fantasy'" (Simon and Schuster, $26.99). It underscores the weeks leading to his death as an intensely happy time for Lennon, after the five years in which he largely cut himself off from the entertainment world to focus on raising Sean. At the center of it all is Ono, who has spent a good chunk of the last 30 years deciding how best to honor her husband's memory and legacy in contemporary pop culture. That's encompassed allowing other musicians to record his songs as part of humanitarian recording projects, adding her approval to Beatles-related ventures such as Cirque du Soleil's Las Vegas show "Love" and the use of Lennon's image and music in "The Beatles: Rock Band" videogame and revisiting their final recording studio collaborations together for a reconfigured version of "Double Fantasy," the 1980 album that put him back at the top of the pop charts shortly before he died. "Double Fantasy _ Stripped Down" is a remixed version of the album, removing the bells-andwhistles production touches that he, Ono and album producer Jack Douglas used 30 years ago, especially the effects used to alter the quality of his naked voice. "I think that's really the best part, in a way," Ono, 77, said during a stop in Beverly Hills recently. "When you hear it, it's totally different in the sense that John's voice is really so up (front in the sound mix). ... You're going to really hear him for the first time, in a way." Raw emotion characterized "John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band," the first album he released after the 1970 breakup of the Beatles. But from "Imagine" in 1971 through "Double Fantasy," he often double-tracked his vocals, adding echo and reverb or other aural processing.

Studios near a deal on ‘Hobbit’

By: Claudia Eller & Ben Fritz LA Times

After several years of delays that have frustrated eager fans, moviegoers might soon be able to return to Middle-earth. Warner Bros., its subsidiary New Line Cinema and partner Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer appear to be close to green-lighting the hugely anticipated two-part "Lord of the Rings" prequel "The Hobbit," according to several people familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly. Barring a last-minute glitch, production could begin in midJanuary so that the first of the two movies would be ready for a holiday 2012 release, according to people close to the project. The second film is planned for a December 2013 opening. If production doesn't begin by the first quarter of next year, the people said, "The Hobbit" will miss its planned release dates and likely will have to once again be delayed. The one remaining hurdle is getting an official go-ahead from MGM, which for more than a year has been virtually out of cash and whose debt holders have been trying to decide upon a plan for reorganization. Under a long-standing

director, producer and co-writer Peter Jackson to make the two movies and have resolved most other key issues that have long held up the project, including those related to underlying rights from the estate of author J.R.R. Tolkien. Jackson has long planned to shoot the movies in his home country of New Zealand, but this week he ran afoul of various performer unions, including the Screen Actors Guild, which are advising their members not to work on what they allege is a non-union production. One person close to the situation said that dispute also is close to being resolved, further clearing the way for a green-light. Jackson took on directing duties after "Pan's Labyrinth" director Guillermo del Toro, who had been set to handle the job, backed out earlier this year because of the ongoing delays. The two "Hobbit" films, which will be shot together, are expected to cost close to $500 million to movies.popcrunch.com produce.

Warner and New Line, which produced the blockbuster "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and control domestic distribution for "Hobbit," are ready to commit their half of the money, said people familiar with the matter. Negotiations between MGM and Warner are at a very tenuous stage. MGM needs to reach agreement among its more than 100 debt owners, which control the future of the studio. MGM's creditors are scrambling to finalize a reorganization plan through which Spyglass Entertainment chiefs Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum are expected to take over management. Barber has been leading negotiations on "The Hobbit" for MGM with top Warner executives, including home entertainment group President Kevin Tsujihara. MGM will need to secure its half of the financing. Barber is expected to approach a number of potential investors, among them studios including 20th Century Fox, which has an existing deal with MGM to release its movies overseas. Other possibilities include outside financial investors or Warner Bros., which could loan MGM its share in exchange for additional distribution rights to the pictures. In recent weeks, Warner and New Line have been scrambling to clean up some underlying

‘Star Wars’ saga in 3-D will start in theaters in 2012 By: Ben Fritz LA Times

George Lucas watched the massive success of "Avatar" and "Alice in Wonderland" in the 3-D format and decided it was time for a return of the Jedi. "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace" will return to theaters in 3-D in 2012 and will be followed in the stereoscopic format by the five other liveaction movies set a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Lucas' Industrial Light & Magic special-effects shop is overseeing the 3-D conversion. 20th Century Fox will release them, as it has done for all previous "Star Wars" films. Lucas has said publicly on more than one occasion that the technological strides of James Cameron's "Avatar" persuaded him to reconsider his longtime disdain for 3-D. After the Golden Globes, for instance, he told Access Hollywood that he was investigating the possibilities of converting his Skywalker family epic into the trendy format. "Haven't been a big fan of 3-D, but that movie definitely improves in (the field of) 3-D ... we've been looking for years and years and years of trying to take 'Star Wars' and put it in 3-D," Lucas explained to "Access." "But, (the) technology hasn't been there. We've been struggling with it, but I think this will be a new impetus to make that happen." ILM visual effects supervisor John Knoll made clear that his company doesn't intend to put out a sub-par 3-D conversion. Some conversions done in a rush have turned off moviegoers and critics. "Getting good results on a stereo conversion is a matter of taking the time and getting it right," Knoll said in a statement. "It takes a critical and artistic eye along with an incredible attention to detail to be successful. It is not something that you can rush if you want to expect good results. For 'Star Wars' we will take our time, applying everything we know both aesthetically and technically to bring audiences a fantastic new 'Star Wars' experience."

Video-game review: ‘NHL Slapshot,’ ‘NHL 2K11,’ ‘NHL 11’ By: Billy O’Keefe MCT

Another fall means another round of hockey games from the usual suspects, but the rules have changed slightly for 2010. The biggest twist is "NHL Slapshot," a brand-new, Wii-only game with arcade tendencies that harken back to EA's early hockey days and a pack-in hockey stick peripheral that makes it a beast of its own creation. The stick is nothing more than an enclosure for the Wii remote and nunchuck, and those who wish to play "Slapshot" without it can do so with two alternative control schemes. But the scheme designed around the stick _ buttons play a role, but the act of swinging the stick allows players to shoot, check and deke _ is surprisingly fun and, thanks to "Slapshot's" arcade leanings, plenty precise enough to work. For those who want "NHL 11" on the Wii, the downside to "Slapshot" is obvious: Even with the more traditional control schemes, this isn't a sim on that level. But "Slapshot" also isn't shallow: It has the whole league, some junior clubs, roster management, a season mode, a Peewee-to-Pro career mode, goalie controls, mini-games and a player creator. Don't let the stick gimmick trick you into thinking "Slapshot" is a one-trick game. It isn't, and if you want a game that plays like EA's classic NHL

games but has a modern feature set (online play excepted), this is not to be missed. Wii owners who want something more serious have another exclusive option in "NHL 2K11," but it's hard to get excited about a game that's

pulling stand-in duty while 2K Sports retools the series for a 2011 reboot on all three consoles. "2K11" isn't without new material: The Road to the Cup mode _ which pits players' Mii avatars in a series of mini game challenges _ benefits from clever games and a funny game show format, and improved MotionPlus implementation enhances the stickhandling controls. Mostly, though, the game feels as tired as its stand-in status implies. It looks aged, it counters the stickhandling improvements with other control issues that return from last year, and online performance remains spotty. Player records return data from the 2008 season, and certain features from previous 360 and PS3 versions still aren't here. Next year's game might be

worth this holdover, but right now, owners of those consoles are missing little. It helps, of course, that those systems still have the best simulation in the business with EA's "NHL" series, which, since its own reinvention a few years back, has toed the line between authenticity and accessibility better than any sports game _ "Madden" included _ ever has. "NHL 11's" big new feature _ an Ultimate Hockey League mode that involves playing well in any mode and collecting cards that improve player attributes in lieu of competing with other players in a monthly online tournament _ might be too big for those who wish to play the game on a remotely casual level. But obsessives who love both hockey and the tenets of role-playing games should adore the new challenge, which is insanely deep and wholly unlike anything a sports sim has attempted before. For the rest of us, the changes are more minute but worth mention all the same. The Canadian Hockey League joins the game's comprehensive roster of teams beyond the NHL, and the Be a Pro career mode now begins in those junior ranks before shifting to the NHL. The faceoff system gets a pinch of extra depth, sticks break, and tweaks in the physics quietly infiltrate the entirety of the action to improve everything from checks to dekes.

Flaming Lips bandleader Wayne Coyne on fate and free will By: Jonathan Zwickel Seattle Times

When it comes to weirdness, the Flaming Lips make Lady Gaga look like Gidget. And if a Flaming Lips concert is the Greatest Show on Earth (it is), then bandleader Wayne Coyne is P.T. Barnum, spiked with L. Ron Hubbard, Jean-Paul Sartre, and your junior-high chorus instructor. Flaming Lips concerts yield the same result every time: one of the most ecstatic experiences in modern pop culture. From the Midwestern abyss of Oklahoma City, touring endlessly around the world, the Flaming Lips have endured almost 30 years of alt-pop outsiderness. They released their 12th album, "Embryonic," last October to widely mixed reviews. (This paper's reviewer loved it.) Q: "Embryonic" was recorded differently than your last few albums, with a more organic, improvisational approach. Like you relinquished control and let the process take over. Would you say that's accurate? A: Well, yeah. And I'm not proud of that. You have to believe, inasmuch as all your experiences tell you, that you know what you're doing, otherwise you don't get into this thing far enough to be able to not have control. I would say almost every song on "Embryonic" is not what we intended to do. We were trying to

do other music with everything we had. I can say that honestly. There's this great Miles Davis song that says, "Thinking One Thing but Doing Another." And that is the truth _ you really have to be convinced that you're doing this other thing to actually do the real thing. It sucks because the more we know about it, the more we're looking for the invisible reality. The invisible reality is invisible _ you'll never know it. But that's true in our lives as well. You have to have a plan. And so we wake up and we become good at charging after whatever it is we believe we want to be. Because if you're not charging after it, you won't run into this accidental way that your life will become. Q: Sounds like a question of fate versus free will. A: I totally agree. ... It's like, when do you surrender and let the universe take you, and when do you assert yourself and say no? That is the

mother (expletive). Free will is not any fun. We all want to be a slave to something. That's why when I sing about, you know, "We're free to be slaves" (on "Sagittarius Silver Announcement" from "Embryonic), it's almost like: Pick. If you're brave enough and have enough experiences, pick the thing that you want to surrender to and let that

be the way your life went. And I struggle with that a lot. I struggle with, do I wanna surrender to art? Ah, art is kinda boring. Do I wanna surrender to just having a good time? I don't know. I wanna have a good time, and then I wanna do some art, and I wanna be serious, and I wanna sleep and I wanna run all day. You don't ever settle.

LENNON from page 10

project he'd have trouble supporting. "He was never satisfied with his voice," Ono said. "But he was satisfied with what we were doing (on 'Double Fantasy') in the sense of the songs." Ono said she's listened to those songs only sporadically over the years and that her response to hearing the album in its entirety during the remixing process recently took her by surprise. "For business reasons I have to listen to certain things sometimes," she said, "maybe one song, you know, if they want to use it for an advertisement, but not the whole thing. I thought, 'I can take care of it as business, objectively,' which I have been doing for 30 years. But to listen to 'Double Fantasy,' ohhh," she said with a heavy sigh. "I was crying, actually." Asked whether "Double Fantasy _ Stripped Down" also means her own voice will be cast in a new light, Ono nearly blushed. "Yes, that's true," she said with a jittery laugh. "I get a bit nervous talking about that. Most people in those days really hated the fact that I was there. But yes, you hear me too." Sean lent a hand to the remixed "Double Fantasy" project: That's his sketch on the cover, a reproduction of the original album's photo of his father and mother kissing. Thirty years after that photo was taken, how might Lennon view the seismic changes that have transpired since he sang to his generation about a "Revolution"? "In the days when John was young, there were few people who played guitar," Ono said. "Now, is there a kid in the class who doesn't know how to play the guitar? It's very different now." Ono believes Lennon would be gratified by many of those differences. "Just like people in old days: The white guys had to marry white women, that kind of thing," Ono said. "In music too, in the old days, rock was rock, jazz was jazz, avant garde was avant garde, classical was classical. Now everybody uses everything, and they don't mind it. ... It's all mixed now. It's beautiful." The musical polyglot is something she finds in sync with their longstanding efforts to promote world peace. "To keep this planet as a beautiful planet, music is it," Ono said. "Music is a healing power, and all musicians who are trying their best, they are all doing it, by their vibrations. Isn't that great? Even if you make the music in your own garage and wouldn't ever put it out, that vibration is healing the world. "John categorically approved all musicians," she said. "As long as it's music, he feels good about it."

Overtime helps Rams survive IUP PAGE 16

By Amy Festa Sports Editor

The women’s soccer team gave up their first goal of the season, resulting in their first loss, last Saturday to Bloomsburg. After a disappointing notch in the loss column for the Rams, they then matched up with IUP in what would eventually be a neck-and-neck competition. Bloomsburg stunned the Rams last Saturday after they upset fourth-ranked West Chester 2-0. Not only did Bloomsburg get two past the typically unbreakable Rams defense, but they also held the strong West Chester offense scoreless. Bloomsburg has become a thorn in West Chester’s side for the second straight year. West Chester finished last season with a regular season record of 16-1-1. Their only loss of the season came through a 1-0 loss to the Huskies. This past Saturday, WCU had yet another close call in their match against Indiana University of Pennsylvania. The Rams traveled to IUP for an afternoon match. The girls had a week off, after their match on Thursday against Holy Family was postponed due to rain. The last time West Chester saw IUP, they were upset by the Crimson Hawks in the second round of the NCAA tournament in a loss they were hoping to avenge on Saturday afternoon. IUP came into the match with a respectful record of 6-2-1, but one that was still overshadowed by West Chester’s 7-1-0 record. West Chester saw IUP start

SPORTS

out with an early lead and trailed the Crimson Hawks for more of the game than they are used to. For the second game in a row, West Chester had trouble starting up their typically unstoppable offense and watched as their opponent took an early lead. IUP scored two quick goals to force West Chester to play catch-up for a good portion of the game. IUP’s Lindsay Lobevero scored first for the Crimson Hawks at 17:22 after a skirmish right in front of Rams goalie Lyndsie Bernardini. Melissa Kornock doubled IUP’s lead less than a minute later when she netted a pass from Carter Sheely. It didn’t take long for West Chester to retaliate. Sarah Oswald scored for the Golden Rams at 20:08 off an assist from Melissa McKeary to cut the Crimson Hawks’ lead in half. This sent West Chester into halftime trailing IUP by one. Kornock struck again a little over 10 minutes into the second half to again put IUP up by two. The scoring continued to come in bunches as Devon Swaim put a penalty kick past IUP goal keeper, Kelly Brennan only 24 seconds later. The Rams were finally able to even up everything in the 68th minute when freshman Maddie Mitchell netted the first goal of her college career after coming off the bench for the Golden Rams. The ball was sent across the IUP goal off of a corner kick from Swaim. With the game all locked up, West Chester was headed into overtime with IUP. Eight minutes into the possible 10 for overtime, Jen Hutchinson became the

Sarah Oswald leads the Rams in scoring this season.

hero for the Golden Rams. A scramble in front of the net led to Hutchinson putting the ball past Brennan for the game winner. The goal came off a perfectly placed corner kick

from Sarah Oswald. Brennan made eight saves for IUP and still took the loss for the Crimson Hawks. Bernardini also made eight saves for the Golden Rams and recorded the

win for her team. Three of West Chester’s four goals came off the bench and after halftime for the Rams, who spent most of the afternoon trailing the Crimson Hawks. The win moves West Chester to 8-1-0 on the season and drops IUP to 6-3-1. After tallying in the loss column last Saturday against Bloomsburg, West Chester drops from their spot atop the PSAC conference and relocates to the number two position. The undefeated California (Pa.) now leads the PSAC with 19 points, while West Chester trails right on their heels with 18 points. West Chester gets to go head to head with California (Pa.) when the Rams hit the road and travel to the Vulcan’s home turf. The Rams have yet another long break and will return home to host three conference matchups in a row. They will see Edinboro on Oct. 8 followed by a game the next day with Clarion. Next week they will welcome Shippensburg in their final home conference matchup of the season.

West Chester suffers second straight Homecoming loss

Football from page 20

On fourth-and-goal the Pioneers made a field goal, but a personal foul penalty on the Golden Rams gave CW Post new life and a fresh set of downs. On the next play, Brunetti ended a nine-play, 80-drive with a threeyard plunge into the end zone to give the Pioneers a 16-14 lead. Mattei led the West Chester offense down the field once again. The quarterback found redshirt freshman wide receiver Tim Keyser for 12 yards to start the drive. On third-and-three, Mattei found White for six yards to move the chains. Mattei then found Fagan for a 24-yard pass completion to get deep into CW Post territory. Redshirt kicker Shawn Leo ended the drive with a 30-yard field goal to help the Golden Rams regain the lead 17-16. In the fourth quarter, the Pioneers answered back. Anderwkavich hooked up with Williams once again for 14 yards to start the drive. On fourthand-inches, West Chester

was penalized once again as redshirt freshman nose guard Nick Garcia was called offsides, giving CW Post a new set of downs. Following a 13-yard run by Brunetti, Anderwkavich found Botti for a 14-yard touchdown reception. The Pioneers went for a two-point conversion and converted it to make it 24-17. The Golden Rams had ten minutes to answer the CW Post score. Mattei took what the Pioneers defense gave them as he connected with Fagan on three consecutive plays. On third-and-10, Mattei found Curry for 29 yards to get within Pioneers territory. Mattei found Fagan once again for 13 yards to get into the red zone. On second-and-goal Mattei scrambled around to the right and threw across his body but the pass was intercepted by linebacker Ronnie Modik. “[Mattei] was up and down all day,” Zwaan said of his quarterback. “He made really poor decisions early and then he made a bad decision late. He made some good plays too, but it wasn’t a step forward and I

was hoping we would take steps forward and I think if we did we would win the game.” After a three-and-out by CW Post, West Chester had another opportunity to tie the game. Starting at the Pioneers 29-yard line, Mattei connected with White for ten yards. On the next play, Mattei found White who was hit from behind and fumbled. The ball ended up in the hands of DePalma who ran into the end zone untouched for the touchdown to tie the game at 24. “Rondell took a shot and the ball popped out right into my hands and didn’t even hit the ground,” DePalma said. “It surprised me; I just took off with it. No one was even close to me. I took advantage of it.” Going into the first overtime, CW Post went on offense first. Anderwkavich found Davis for seven yards and then ran for 12 yards before Brunetti scored from one yard out to give the Pioneers a 31-24 lead. On third-and-10 from the 25-yard line of their first overtime possession, Mattei found DePalma for 18 yards to get within the 10-yard line. On

second-and-goal, Fagan scored from two yards out to tie the score at 31. In the second overtime, Webb fumbled and defensive lineman Xavier Brown recovered the fumble for CW Post. The Pioneers attempted a 46-yard field goal but it was short as CW Post had to wait until the third overtime to win it. Mattei finished 30-45 for a career-high 329 yards and two touchdowns. Fagan finished with a career-high 11 receptions for a career-high 112 yards. He also added 30 yards rushing. The offense converted 11 of 18 third-down opportunities and outgained the Pioneers 410 to 391 yards. The Golden Rams had three turnovers and eight penalties for 81 yards in the loss. “It’s frustrating because I thought we were going to turn the corner and we didn’t,” Zwaan said. “We’re shooting ourselves in the foot,” DePalma said. “But there is nothing we can’t overcome; we can work on that in practice. We learned a lot today and we’re going to build

on that and be better next week.” This week the Golden Rams have a short week of practice as they host the Shippensburg University Red Raiders on Thursday beginning at 8 p.m. at Farrell Stadium. “It’s going to be tough but everyone will be ready to practice,” Mattei said of the short turnaround between games. “I think everybody will be hungrier than ever after this loss so it shouldn’t be a problem.” “Obviously everybody is down, how could you not be down,” Zwaan said of the quick turnaround. “They are kids. They are not grown men and they are not getting paid for it. You have to hope they can pull together somehow. That’s my job as a coach to try to make that happen. It’s going to be a tough road that’s for sure.” “I think we’re all ready to get back on the field,” DePalma said. LJ Harrell is a graduate student majoring in communications studies.

WCU hockey’s first game to set the stage for the season By Kenny Ayres Special to the Quad

It is not a playoff game, nor is it even a conference game, but Friday night Oct. 1 marks one of the most important games in WCU’s Hockey team’s young season: the opener. In any sport setting the tone early is important. Coming off a rough season, this new, rejuvenated squad looks to break out early and get off on a roll, ultimately to make it back to that spot where they were two years ago. The season and home opener already proves to be a tough matchup as the Rams play host to Niagara. The Rams have practiced and scrimmaged but have not yet played in an actual game, setting them at a slight disadvantage to the 1-1 Niagara who split a series with Liberty, who is ranked in the top ten. “This weekend will be huge for us in forming our identity as a team,” Coach Dorsey said. “Everything has clicked well so far, but games are a completely different situation than we’ve been through so far.” Where scrimmages help keep the team in shape and their skills sharp there is nothing like being put into a game situation, especially against a high ranked team such as Niagara. The Rams most certainly need to step onto the ice with high intensity and crisp play.

When asked about his game plan for the game Dorsey said, “In starting off the season, it is really key for us to keep our game simple, play to our strengths, which is our speed, and stay within our systems. If we stray from our systems, or try to get fancy, we won’t be effective. If we play our systems and use our speed, we can play with any team in the country.” Their team this year is built around their speed, which is one of their greatest assets. This fresh, quick team is a perfect mix of seasoned veterans and young talent who will look to keep up their hard work they put in the offseason and translate it to a win.   Also, as Dorsey said, not trying to do too much will be a huge part in the success or failure of the team in this game. Trying to do too much often leads to sloppy play and in order to start off the season 1-0, sloppiness simply cannot happen. Assistant Captain Joe Mango agreed with and added to the game plan Coach Dorsey laid out. “We have a lot of speed and we plan on using it,” Mango said.  “We also plan on capitalizing on all our opportunities, especially when we are on the power play.  We are also going to emphasize team defense and not taking any stupid penalties.” Along with the importance

to the entire team to get them- include the defensive pair Bob selves off to a good start, it is McInerny and Mike Ahle, and equally pivotal for the young the pair Ari Nugent and Jon Reitz. Matt Murnane will get players. “It is also very important for the nod of starting goalie. In regards to this game, us to start off strong because of the amount of youth on our Dorsey said, “This weekend is team. Having a solid first week will do great things for their confidence level,” Dorsey said. Confidence is one of the biggest keys to success and a confident team often times makes a winning team. Dorsey released that his first line would consist of forwards Steve Meade, Tom Scococzza, and Dan Griffiths along with the defensive pair of Steve Jones and Jeff Dugan. The rest of the forward lines will consist of a second line of Tim Margadonna, Tim Higgins and Adam Ball, a third line of Brian Ruskowski, Sean Coll, and Brandon Person, and a fourth line made up of Joe Mango, Chris Baer, and either Tyler Moll or Karl Palmer. The remaining two defensive lines Sean Coll clears the puck in front of the WCU net.

Men’s soccer gets shutout again By Travis Pearson Special to the Quad

The West Chester men’s soccer team dropped their sixth straight game on Wednesday evening, losing 1-0 to visiting New York Institute of Technology in a non-conference game at the South Campus fields. The loss dropped WCU to 2-6 overall, and 0-4 in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC). Five of WCU’s six losses were by one goal deficits, and five have been shutouts. New York Tech also came in on a cold streak, losing three straight and winless in four in a row after a tie. The Rams gave up the lead very early, as New York Tech’s Matthew DiDonna took the assist from Mohammed Habibzi and scored only 1:48 into the game. Starting goalie Garrett Bleiler came away from the net in order to reduce the angle toward the goal, but DiDonna kicked the ball up and over the sliding Bleiler. The afternoon didn’t look promising after giving up a goal so early in the match, but West Chester was able to hold NYIT from putting another ball past their goalie. With limited scoring opportunities, the game was played mostly in the midfield. Michael Doran went the distance in goal for New York Tech and recorded two saves as well as the shutout victory.

Bleiler played the first 26 minutes of the game before Peter Weiss played the remaining 64 minutes in relief, notching four saves. West Chester had their share of chances. Seven corner kicks led to the only two shots on goal for the Rams. In the second half, the Rams’ leading scorer Conor Malarney had a breakaway chance, but was tracked down and stifled by NYIT defenders. Zac Tassone took two shots for WCU while Ryan Dicci and Tyler Fettrow supplied the shots on goal with one a piece. The Rams took three shots in each half and were outshot overall 9-6. WCU committed more fouls than NYIT, 17-14. WCU will continue in their search for a win this week with three nonconference games— each coming at home where the team is 2-3 thus far. The University of the District of Columbia (3-6-1) comes to town Sunday, 10/3 at 1 p.m. UDC also falls under .500 on the season with an overall record of 3-6-1. On Wednesday Oct. 6, Holy Family University (3-3-3) visits for a 3:30 p.m. tilt. Lastly, Lincoln University (1-2) plays Saturday Oct. 9 at 2:30 p.m. One of these games is promising in West Chester’s hope for breaking their losing streak.

In the final set, Lock Haven had to come from behind to earn the hardfought victory. The Lady Rams never go down easy and make their opponents earn every point they get. “We did not execute during the 1st and 2nd sets and we were outplayed. However, we turned the Photo by Brynn Pezzuti corner and were able to

get back to our pace and really gave it a great effort” Bellaver said. With Saturday’s win over WCU, Lock Haven improves their overall record to 11-6 and 5-3 in PSAC play.

Rutgers Takes Down West Chester By Brynn Dougherty Special to the Quad

The visiting Rutgers took down West Chester in a soggy, non-conference Sunday afternoon game last week at Vonnie Gros Field. The defeat lengthened West Chester’s losing streak with six losses in a row and improved Rutgers’ record to 3-7 for their second straight win. Brynn Adams was the single goal scorer for the Golden Rams, while Nicole Gentile put in two for the Scarlet Knights. A majority of the game was played with a tie with the first half resulting in no goals for either team. The teams retreated to the locker rooms with clear slates giving either team the chance to make something happen. “We were feeling really confident after the first half,” Kate Zunski said. “No one had scored, but we were playing really well. We wanted this win so badly.” She continued to say that they were stopping the Scarlet Knights around the 25-yard line because they were forcing balls into the circle. She said that they were looking good defensively. “I think both teams came out of that locker room with a new attitude, ready to lock the game up in the second half,” Junior forward Alyssa Gallen said. At the start of the second half, Brynn Adams scored after controlling a pass from Nicole Fiorilla in the 36th minute of

play and pushing it past Rutgers goalkeeper Vickie Lavell, giving the Golden Rams an early lead in the second half. Fiorella was credited with her second assist of the season and Adams scored her first goal of the season. Gallen commented on their first goal, “We thought we had it for sure after Brynn’s goal in the second half.” Zunski added that she thought they were about to turn their record around. Five minutes after Adams’ goal, Scarlet Knight Nicole Gentile answered in the 41st minute. The score remained tied at 1-1 for almost the entire remainder of the game. “The Rutgers first goal in the second half was just motivation to score again and put this game in the bag,” Gallen said. Zunski added that as the half continued and with a minute left in the game, they thought for sure they would get them in overtime. With 26 seconds left of play, Gentile came through again for the Scarlet Knights with a goal in the second half. No overtime was

required. Scarlet Knight Carlie Rouh blocked a clearing attempt from the Golden Rams defense at the 25-yard line and redirected momentum towards the WCU goal. Rouh made a crossing pass to Gentile seven yards out on the left side and shot the ball past WCU goalkeeper Kristen Arnold,

putting the Scarlet Knights up 2-1 with virtually no time for retaliation. “We all played with a tremendous amount of effort but my team will agree with me in saying we should not have lost that game and it really is a shame,” Gallen said. ”It would have been a huge win for us at this point in our season, so it’s definitely a disappointment.” “It was a tight game,” Zunski said. “We really felt good about how we were playing, so we took this loss pretty hard.” Rouh was credited with both assists in the game. Gentile registered four goals this weekend, and now leads Rutgers with five goals for the season. Later in the week, Gentile was named Big East Offensive Player of the Week—a title West Chester’s Fiorella claimed earlier in the year. Rutgers outshot West Chester by a 12-2 margin. Kristen Arnold was in the cage for the whole 70 minutes of play with five recorded saves and two allowed goals. Despite her solid performance, she was credited with Lukas Jenkins/ The Quad

the loss. Scarlet Knight Vickie Lavell also guarded the cage for the entirety of the game giving up only one goal. The Golden Rams will go into their match with a 3-6 record against Penn on Friday at 4 p.m. at Vonnie Gros Field. Penn has an overall record of 1-6, and is 1-3 in away games. “We don’t usually play Penn so it’s always exciting to see a new team,” Gallen said. “They haven’t had the best record this season so hopefully we can boost our confidence with a win against them.” The Golden Rams have lost all six of their last outings, with their last win coming on September 3 against Lehigh. “From here on out we are treating every team as a conference team so this game is just as important as our upcoming games,” Gallen said. The Golden Rams have played some of the most highly ranked teams in the nation this season, including North Carolina, Penn State and Columbia. “It is a privilege to play some of the teams we play, and that’s why Kathy schedules them,” Gallen said. “We can learn from them and it can only make us better.” The Golden Rams have a tough road ahead of them, but Gallen speaks for her team when she says that they are ready for the challenge and hope to turn their losing streak around come Friday.

The frustration continues mistakes doom WCU in triple overtime defeat By LJ Harrell Staff Writer

On Saturday, in front of a large homecoming crowd at Farrell Stadium, the West Chester University Golden Rams (1-4, 1-1 PSAC East) football team took a step backwards as they fell to the CW Post Pioneers (3-2, 2-0 PSAC East) 39-37 in triple overtime. This was the longest game in West Chester history since a 1989 playoff game against Portland State, which also went into three overtimes. “I really am just crushed,” head coach Bill Zwaan said. “Every emotion, I ran through them all, it’s so frustrating. I don’t have the answer. We’re going to play overtime games, we’re going to play games where the last play of the game or the last play of the half is going to be huge and we have to be able to handle those situations and we didn’t do a good job of it.” “We really thought we were coming together as a team and we were going to start rolling,” sophomore quarterback Mike Mattei said. “This game could have gone to midnight and I would have been fine with it as

long as we would have won.” “An overtime loss is always hard to take,” senior wide receiver Dan DePalma said. “They are a good team and we knew that coming in and unfortunately we couldn’t pull this one out.” For the second time in as many home games, Mattei recovered a fumble in his own end zone for a safety, which ended up being the difference in the game. “If there was one play I would take back it would definitely be the safety,” Mattei said. “That’s two points they should have never had and it’s all on my shoulders that they had it.” In the third overtime, CW Post quarterback Erik Anderwkavich found wide receivers Joe Bottie and Darnel Williams to get inside the Golden Rams 10-yard line. Three plays later, running back Anthony Brunetti plowed into the end zone from three yards out to give the Pioneers a six-point lead. On the two-point conversion, Anderwkavich found wide receiver Grayson Laurino to make it 39-31. When West Chester got the ball back, it looked as if they

were going to send it to a fourth overtime. Mattei found junior running back Jackson Fagan for 11 yards to get within the 15-yard line. On third-and-goal from the five-yard line, Mattei found freshman wide receiver Rondell White who took it into the end zone to make it 39-37. On the two-point conversion, Mattei’s pass was broken up in the back of the end zone which ended the game as CW Post began celebrating. “We tried to get Rondell in the flat,” Mattei said of the two-point conversion play call. “We thought they were going to go with man coverage but they ended up playing zone.” “We killed ourselves so many times,” Zwaan said. “We deserved a miracle to happen but we just kept killing ourselves. We can’t play like that and expect to win. We can’t turn the ball over, we can’t make stupid, stupid penalties and stupid fumbles. We can’t do it and try to win games; it’s impossible to do.” In the first quarter, following the safety and a missed field goal by the Pioneers, the Golden Rams offense began moving the ball. Mattei found DePalma on

the right sideline for 20 yards to start the drive. Mattei then completed a third down pass to senior running back D’Andre Webb to move the chains. Webb finished off the 11-play, 70-yard drive with a five-yard touchdown run to give West Chester a 7-2 lead. CW Post answered back as Anderwkavich, the leading rusher by quarterbacks in the PSAC, went back to work. Anderwkavich hit Brunetti to start the drive for 11 yards. On third-and-eight, Anderwkavich found Botti for 17 yards for a first down. On the next play, Anderwkavich connected with tight end Andre Davis for a 15-yard touchdown to give the Pioneers the lead 9-7. The Golden Rams came back onto the field and put together one of their longest drives of the season. Mattei found Fagan three times, including twice on third down, to start the drive. Mattei then connected with DePalma for 13 yards and sophomore tight end Justin Curry for 16 yards to get within the CW Post 20-yard line. After coming up short on third-andgoal from the one-yard line, Mattei scored from one-yard

out on fourth down to end the 15-play, 72-yard drive in 9:06 to give West Chester a 14-9 lead. On the ensuing kickoff, defensive back Juma McKenley fumbled for the Pioneers and senior fullback Adam Young recovered for the Golden Rams. Mattei completed passes to White (15 yards) and Webb (10 yards) to convert back-to-back third and longs. Unfortunately for West Chester, a penalty sent the offense back when they were inside the CW Post 10-yard line, and the Golden Rams ended up turning the ball over on downs. West Chester had 160 yards of total offense in the first half, while the Pioneers had 137 yards. The Golden Rams converted seven of their 10 third-down conversions. In the second half, CW Post came out firing. Anderwkavich found Williams for eight yards to start the drive. Running back Thomas Beverly ran 10 yards for a first down before Williams caught a pass from Anderwkavich and scampered 47 yards down the field to get deep into West Chester territory.
