Terry College works to fill in ‘cracks’

Student arrested ‘just wanted to hook up’ with girl A University student was arrested and charged with DUI and failure to maintain lane Sunday morning after a University Police officer saw him driving on East Campus Road, according to a University Police report. When the officer asked Cory Dion Raines, 23, where he was going, he reportedly “repeatedly gestured to the car” and said several times “he just wanted to ‘hook up with the girl’ in the car.” Raines said he stopped drinking at 12:30 a.m., almost three hours before the officer stopped him, and when the officer asked what he had been doing, Raines reportedly said he was “trying to hook up with this girl.”

Pop-Tarts release Bulldog Berry flavor This year, a new type of snack will be available for tailgates: Bulldog Berry Pop-Tarts, printed with the University logo. According to Alan Thompson, associate athletic director for external operations, this isn’t the first time there have been University Pop-Tarts. “A couple of years back, we did a program where it was simply a regular Pop-Tart, and on the icing it had collegiate logos,” Thompson said. “This one was a little bit different, in that it extended beyond just the symbol itself, but the branding of it is ‘Bulldog Berry.’” The Pop-Tarts will be launched in stores around Sept. 1. They will be available at Kroger, Walmart, Ingles and Food Lion, according to Thompson. —Erica Techo

Toppers bouncer chokeholds customer A bouncer working at Toppers International Showbar hit a customer on the head several times and placed him in a “chokehold” after the customer took pictures of his friend in the club Saturday at 12:05 a.m., according to an Athens-Clarke County Police report. The victim told the responding officer he and his friends had been attending a bachelor party in Toppers, according to the report. One of the victim’s friends reportedly became “so intoxicated that he was in and out of it.” The victim and his friends put dollar bills all over the intoxicated individual, according to the report. The victim reportedly took out his phone to take a picture of his friend when the bouncer told him he could not take photos in the bar. —Cailin O’Brien

UGA misses cut for top 25 STEM Latinos The University didn’t crack the top 25 in producing a large number of Hispanic graduates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields, according to a study by Excelencia in Education. Hispanic students accounted for 16.5 percent of all college enrollments, according to a 2012 report by the Pew Hispanic Center. At the University, they only accounted for 4 percent. “We know through data that Latinos are underrepresented in STEM professions,” said Deborah Santiago, co-founder and vice president for policy and research at Excelencia. “Population projections show that Latinos are the youngest and fastest-growing population.” —Maria Torres

O captains, my captains By Robbie Ottley The Red & Black Members of the armed forces often say that in the heat of a firefight, they’re fighting for the man beside them. During the warfare of the gridiron, Georgia’s players have a similar conviction. “The one thing you’re gonna get across the board is the love for our teammates, and that’s what keeps us coming back, that’s what keeps us on the field,” long snapper Ty Frix said. “That’s what makes it all worth it.” Frix joins defensive end Abry Jones, cornerback Shawn Williams and quarterback Aaron Murray as the captains chosen for Saturday’s opening game against Buffalo. Frix, Jones and Williams are all seniors. Murray is a redshirt junior potentially leaving after the season, so all four are in the same class and in their last year. As a result, the four share a bond stronger even than their relationships with other teammates. “Our juniors and seniors are so

close,” Frix said. The departure also gives Saturday’s game an additional poignancy. “I don’t even know how to put it into words. It’s a huge honor,” Frix said. “It’s a very humbling experience to be included with those other three guys.” And the value of being a captain goes beyond the camaraderie. “It pretty much shows that you have an amount of respect and you’re seen as a leader,” Jones said. “I’m not the most vocal leader, but to be chosen for something like that is still a big deal that you’re seen in the leader light.” The captains have a particular affinity for the rookies — because they’ll be acting as the leaders out on the field. Those players need to learn what the fight is and how to fight it before they even get into the reason for fighting. But the captains are looking forward to the freshmen performances. “I’m excited to see what all the freshmen can do, every position,” Murray said. “I know they’ll be ready.”

The University is not the school it wants to be. In January, President Michael Adams gave his State of the University address to a room of faculty, staff, students, journalists and lawmakers. He spoke of a recession: tightening times and crumbling ground. “[Legislators] need to know that we have lost ground to our peer institutions, our aspirational institutions and our competitors, both domestic and global,” Adams said. “And when UGA loses ground, Georgia loses ground, and none of us can afford that.” But it’s hard, on first glance, to see where the lost ground has gone. The first-year students who started class in August have an overall average high school GPA of 3.83 and SAT scores between 1790 and 2040 for the middle 50 percent. Five hundred and sixty of them are in the Honors Program. If the value of a University education SUMICHRAST is changing, it is difficult to see how or in what direction, up or down. There are no constants. Aspirational peer institutions include the University of Virginia, the University of California at Berkley and Cornell University, but comparisons are useless. Too many variables make for too many interpretations based on too much data. But take the Terry College of Business. “Terry is blessed with great faculty and small size program that avail [students] the opportunity to fraternize with themselves as well as with the faculty,” wrote one student as part of BusinessWeek’s latest survey of business schools. “The trend in what students are saying about us is very good,” said Terry Dean Robert Sumichrast in a March press release upon the latest BusinessWeek ranking’s announcement. Yet Terry ranks below business schools at the University of Virginia, the University of California at Berkley and Cornell See TERRY, Page 3

Redcoat Band replace gold with silver By Jamie Gottlieb The Red & Black The Redcoat Marching Band is playing a new tune after completing its five-year mission of replacing gold instruments with silver ones. Since 2008, the Redcoat Band spent about $250,000 on more than 140 silver instruments, including trumpets, mellophones, trombones and sousaphones, according to financial statements from the band. John Lynch, director of the bands, said the money to purchase the silver instruments came from donations and funds from the Redcoat Band Alumni Association, the student activities fee, the University Athletic Association and the Redcoat Band Enrichment Fund. Lynch said the plan to buy all

silver instruments stemmed from the goal of making the band look more unified. “If we have instruments that match, it just looks better,” he said. “In the marching band, you want everything to look precise and wellmatched. If you have all different colors of metal out there on the field, it looks less than unified.” Lee Butts, Redcoat Band Alumni Association board member, agreed. “If you’re going to spend hours and hours of getting your ranks in line and getting the moves just right, it makes it easier to make a group of individuals look unified with all silver [instruments],” he said. Allison Turner, the Redcoat Band captain from Acworth, said silver has See REDCOAT, Page 3

Caterpillar factory brings jobs By MEGAN ERNST The Red & Black

The chickenology Odyssey Seminar attracts students who do not major in poultry science. FILE/Staff

‘Fun’ chickenology class doesn’t ruffle feathers “Chickenology: Everything You Want to Know About the Chicken,” a First Year Odyssey Seminar, is taught by Robert Beckstead, a poultry science professor. “By having a name that is a little unusual, it catches the eye of the student. And a lot of the students who

take the class are not poultry science majors,” Beckstead said. He said he hopes the 13-student class will also be a fun tool for students to explore fields and take classes that are not a part of their major. ­— Taylor West

The new $200 million Caterpillar factory near Athens is expected to create 1,400 new jobs, according to Plant Manager Todd Henry at a media tour at the plant. The factory is expected to begin production in 2013. “It’s a great story about an American company adding jobs in America,” said Trey Googe, vice president of Yancey Bros. Co., the Caterpillar dealer for the state of Georgia. In addition to the 1,400 jobs that the factory will provide, Caterpillar estimates another 2,800 full-time jobs will be created among suppliers in the area, according to Henry.

Undocumented college students given chance of deferred action President Barack Obama’s new policy on deferred action does not touch on education, said Lorgia García-Peña, an assistant professor of romance languages at the University who also teaches undocumented immigrants at Freedom University. Obama introduced a policy on June 15 that allows undocumented young adults the chance to receive a two-year deferment from deportation. In order to qualify for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the person must have been under 31 years old at the time the policy was enacted and

have lived in the country for five years, Robin Catmur, director of Immigration Services at the University, said. The University System of Georgia Board of Regents doesn’t accept undocumented students. Lauren Bell, a Georgia College & State University sophomore, does not qualify for deferred action. Her family moved from England when she was 11 and since then, they have been trying to gain full citizenship. ­—Jessie Bruno

Pharmacy logo non-compliant The College of Pharmacy will be holding a contest to select a new logo following notification from the External Affairs Division that their logo infringed on trademark laws, said Assistant Dean of Student Affairs for the school Alan Wolfgang. The College of Pharmacy’s logo depicts the University “G” imposed on top of a picture of a mortar and pestle. Such an amendment to a University trademark is not in compliance with University logo standards, Vice President for Public Affairs Tom Jackson said. “When people use the registered trademarks of the University, there are certain guidelines they must follow,” he said. External Affairs notified the college about its logo infraction Feb. 2, according to documents obtained by The Red & Black. Jackson said “it’s rather routine” for External Affairs to notice non-compliant logos in use around campus. Jackson said out of the about 20 requests to use a logo gathered in a week, an average two a week “have a compliance problem.” — Cailin O’Brien

Greenland’s ice sheet observed Greenland, despite what the name might suggest, is topped by an ice sheet that covers 90 percent of its surface area. During July, 97 percent of this ice sheet experienced melt — meaning that the surface area had experienced some form of snow or ice melt. A Rutgers University colleague Tom Mote, professor and department head of geography at the University, from Greenland when a 60-year-old bridge over the Watson River washed out because of floods caused by the massive melt. “We haven’t seen any other summer that’s produced as much melt through the end of September as we’ve already seen in early August,” Mote said. Scientists estimate that the last time a melt occurred on this scale was in 1889. —Jeanette Kazmierczak

The Terry College of Business was ranked No. 50 in the country by Bloomberg BusinessWeek. C.B. Schmelter/Staff

Terry: More graduates finding employment ➤ From Page 1 University — and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Pennsylvania State and the University of Texas at Austin. Only one aspirational institution ranks below Terry on BusinessWeek’s rankings: the University of Washington, at 55. Terry is 50. ‘Through the cracks’ This is how it happens. “When we go in and speak to all of our new business students in the intro classes they take … [Sumichrast] says, ‘You know, why did you want — why did you choose Terry? Why are you a business major?’ And they all say, ‘It’s to get a good job,’ ” said Jill Walton, Terry’s director of undergraduate student services and corporate relations. “But when you looked at where our numbers were about four years ago, when you looked at the at-graduation and three months out [statistics], we were not doing very well compared to our peer and aspirational schools. Now — I mean now, we’re doing a lot better.” Terry is taking a lot of the right steps, according to a lot of different people: Terry is good at connecting with its MBA students, said Shannon Caldwell, the director of the MBA Career Management Center, who makes a point to make a point of knowing each student that comes through on a name basis). Terry is good at working with the Career Center, said Assistant Director of Employer Relations Michelle Carter, who told stories of Terry students who worked their way through the Center’s resources — its semesterly job fairs, mock interview training, résumé building and more — on their way to a job placement. “A lot of employers do know about our program. I think our brand has pretty strong name recognition,” Caldwell said. “I don’t think that that’s anything we can rest on, and I know we work very hard cultivating those relationships.” The students, too, have things to say — such as Elizabeth Gaston, who graduated in May with a degree in marketing.

gia-Pacific: Gaston met them face-to-face at a career fair and thought they were “really friendly people.” She interviewed with the company on campus and was later asked for a final interview in Atlanta. It was, she said, “very seamless.” But there are always seams: Gaston went to career fairs for two years in a row; from the beginning, she worked DAWGlink, which is maintained by the Career Center. She competed in sales competitions — and did well. She went to Terry Talks, a series of regular events that connect “Terry students with alumni who have experienced successful careers in different areas of expertise,” according to Terry’s website. Gaston went to and did all of that. “I knew I wanted a job with a really big company,” she said. And she got one. But students primarily want résumé-writing advice and help with their interviewing skills. The students who come to Carter — and Carter deals with accounting students exclusively (career consultants are divided up by program, though they all work out of the Career Center in Clark Howell) — are not all like Gaston, though there are those students, the “lifers,” who understand the value of the Center early and often, going in as early as their freshman or sophomore years. The applicant pool is appealing because Terry is so large. It just isn’t especially deep. Students, Gloeckler said recruiters said, are “falling through the cracks.”

Redcoat: All silver instruments create unity ➤ From Page 1 become an iconic color for the University. With full silver lines of instruments, Turner said the fullsilver color boosts the image of the band on the field and on television. “We want to represent the University well, and the matching uniforms and instruments add to that,” she said. However, the band didn’t just improve its look with the new instruments — it improved its sound. Lynch said before replacing the gold instruments, some instruments were about 30 years old and in “pretty poor condition.” “If the instrument isn’t working properly, it’s harder to play, and it won’t

sound as good,” he said. Still, Butts said one of the most important effects of purchasing the new instruments was the boost in band morale. “When you’re a player, and you’re handed a nice, shiny instrument, it helps you become a part of the Redcoat family and proud to be part of the band,” he said. Lynch said after coming from other universities, he has never seen a band program as supported by a school as the one at the University. Since the beginning of July, the band has received approximately $30,000 from the Student Activities fee and the Athletic Association and hopes to raise more as the football season starts. “Every year at

homecoming, [the Redcoat Band Alumni Association] raises funds toward the needs of the band,” Lynch said. “And in the most recent years, our primary need has been to get silver instruments.” Lynch said when he has communicated the band’s needs with people, they help. “[The instruments] were the one thing we asked for, and they’re what we got,” he said. Most of all, Lynch said the directors and the students just want to look better than other universities’ bands. “We wanted to look better than any other band in the SEC,” he said. “Part of this was getting instruments to match.”

We're No. 1 Now University adds ‘most American’ to its list of national titles Here in Athens, our school’s rowdy reputation is a long-standing point of pride. Our student body’s consistently high blood alcohol content brings us together. We may have different bars and different cliques, but at the end of the day, Bulldogs from all walks can stumble downtown for one big, hazy group hug of solidarity. We revel together; the morning after, we suffer together in the headacheinducing hands of an angry God. No one does drunk like a Bulldog. It came as a crushing blow, then, when last week the Princeton Review released its annual list of party schools, which had Georgia — by some universe-rending methodological hiccup — falling into fifth place behind such lightweights as the Universities of Iowa and Illinois. What a black eye that was. But it’s a new week, faithful reader, and that means the unveiling of a new list, in this case Sportsgrid.com’s “Most American Schools in America.” As if to tweak the noses of the crooked book cookers at the Princeton Review, the trained statisticians at Sportsgrid.com concocted a highly robust, practicallyairtight model that crossreferences party school rankings with the Associated Press’s Top 25 football rankings. Rightfully, UGA sits atop the list. Sweet vindication. So what you’ve never heard of Sportsgrid.com. What matters is that we won, and that we all spread the news hither and yon across the social media sphere. Hoist high Old Glory, Bulldog patriot, and post about your school’s accolade on Facebook to make jealous your shut-in friends at Georgia Tech. We’ve finally received recognition we deserve, for something we’ve known for a long time: that here at the University of Georgia, our allegiance is but to Dawg and country. —Blake Seitz is the opinions editor of The Red & Black

Times changing for female golfers at Augusta National

L

ast week, the elite Augusta National Golf Club was the focus of media attention when it extended club membership to women for the first time since its inception in 1933. Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore can now don the trademark green jacket and putt around with corporate and political big shots on the clandestine club’s private greens. Of course, this public announcement from the decidedly private Augusta National is less about broadening membership and more about mitigating its reputation as a club steeped in the timeless traditions of racism and sexism, which, unsurprisingly, is not desirable for the host of the Masters Tournament. In terms of keeping up with the social and political climate of the 21st century, Augusta National is nowhere up to par. Only in 1983 did the club abolish the rule that members had to use the club’s caddies, who were — by strange and inexplicable coincidence — all black. In 2002, Martha Burk of the National Council of Women’s Organizations stirred up controversy during the Masters by protesting its males-only membership policy on a lot near the club. Former chairman of the Augusta National William “Hootie” Johnson shot back that the club was private, and that the policy would not change, even “if [he dropped] dead this second.” Johnson is still alive, and Burk and women lost that battle. Score one for Hootie and good ol’ tradition. A decade later, the controversy emerged again. In October of 2011, Virginia Rometty was appointed CEO of IBM and the board of Augusta National found themselves in an awkward position. They’ve always offered membership to the CEOs of their corporate sponsors, but this particular CEO lacked male genitalia. In the end, Rometty was not extended

an invitation to the club, a move that attracted a lot of negative media publicity and led to Augusta National’s expedited journey into the 21st century. After a firestorm of bad PR and some awkwardness with the corporate sponsors, hallelujah! Augusta National Golf Club suddenly saw the light, and flung wide its grassy gates for any woman deemed worthy of joining the golfing elite. Forgive me for being at least a little cynical. In 2002 the socio-political climate wasn’t strong enough to pressure Augusta National into changing its membership policy, even with the media attention on Burk’s protest. But now that corporate sponsorship is involved, Augusta National is falling over itself to welcome these two women to their club, with Chairman Billy Payne heralding the event as “a joyous occasion.” Although we may owe this victory in part to ulterior motives, it is still a victory for women. At this moment, little girls can dream of teeing off in Augusta National’s signature green jacket. They will be able to best their colleagues in a game of golf and maybe land a business deal or two, and hopefully no one will blink an eye. It’s no longer such a farfetched dream for a woman to reach positions of power. I’d just like to live to see the day where it’s the norm. — Lily Kim is a senior from Savannah majoring in microbiology

itting in class the other day a student made the comment to me that greed is “the problem with this country.” It is popular these days to believe that people are too focused on making money. This has always struck me as odd. Greed? Really? Is that the best we can come up with? Let’s consider the definition of greed for a minute: excessive or rapacious desire. This country was founded by people who craved something so much they started a war over it. Their motivations wouldn’t be considered acceptable by today’s standards: they wanted to avoid overzealous taxation, to run their businesses however they chose and keep the money they earned. If a group of men started a rebellion on those grounds today, they’d be branded as selfish individuals with an insatiable desire for money. They would not be compared to the heroes who founded one of the greatest nations the world has ever seen. Not only were we founded upon “greed,” but it’s also what made this country great. These days, the men who provide capital and jobs are sneered at. Why do we now denounce the same virtues that once made us great? So if greed is not the problem with this nation, then what is? My answer to that is easy: we’re lazy. At some point in the last 50 years, this country developed an entitlement complex that has held on tight to and won’t let go of. — Amanda Horne is a sophomore from Cartersville majoring in psychology and political science

MAILBOX Change needed after omission in Red & Black coverage Red & Black Board member Charles Russell resigned Tuesday. The Athens Banner-Herald reported it. The Red and Black did not. How does a news organization get beat on a story about its own board? I didn’t complain when the Red and Black covered my fraternity’s removal from campus in the Spring of 2010, but that doesn’t mean it was easy for me to read. It hurts to see our transgressions in black and white. Now it’s time for the Red & Black, “our” student newspaper, to be accountable and stop avoiding the fallout of the fiasco it created. There is, perhaps, too much of a conflict of interest at the Red & Black

for it to be its own watchdog. It seems unfair to ask the student journalists — who were so emotionally invested in the debacle last week — to step in now and give the quality, in-depth coverage that the Red and Black so prominently attempts to produce when conflicts arise in other campus institutions. I am not the only one who wishes to learn the details and underpinnings of the situation that caused the neardownfall of the Red & Black. In fact, the revolt that took place on Baxter Street a week ago could serve as a teaching tool at the University and on campuses across America. It should be reported on by

a credible source — one without conflicts of interests. I strongly encourage the Red & Black staff and board members to seek out a third-party journalist or group of journalists to provide fair coverage of how and why the events last week transpired. Allow that third party to handle this as a case study, and don’t be afraid to publish it right here in the Red & Black. Journalistically, it’s the right thing to do.

An amiable drunk: University recently found that binge drinking college students have higher levels of “social satisfaction” than non-drinking peers. While we are healthily skeptical of these findings, our falling party school ranking has never seemed more relevant — could our campus be backsliding into a dry misery?

o-House expansion: Behind us is the feeling of being herded through O-House dining commons like so much livestock. The dining hall’s new, 11,000-square-foot seating area has been open for a month now, and we’re so happy about it we could turn cartwheels down its roomy aisles. Not a tray would be spilled.

First week of Sunday alcohol sales brings business woes Package stores at odds with decision By NICHOLAS WATSON The Red & Black For Athens resident Brad Baker, 32, last Sunday marked a new beginning in consumer convenience. “I think it was long overdue,” said Baker on the first Sunday of legal alcohol sales. “It was kind of an old-fashioned law in an old-fashioned state. I think that it’s a huge step forward.” The July 31 referendum for Sunday alcohol sales passed with more than 70 percent of the vote. “I was excited and expecting it to happen since this is a liberal town,” said Darren Scott, manager of Village Wine and Spirits on Barnett Shoals Road. “It really had no chance of not passing.” Other owners of package stores around

the city are at odds with the decision, saying it eliminates employees’ one day of rest. “Sunday was an off-day for all the employees and owners,” said Minesh Patel, owner of Red & Black Package on Oconee Street. “They were a little upset that they will be working now on Sundays instead of spending time with family and relaxing.” Both Village Wine and Spirits and Red & Black Package had a few shoppers in the stores. Sachin Patel, coowner of Five Points Bottle Shop, also had mixed feelings after the referendum passed. Sachin said he was stressed by the crowds in his store. “I believe in a separation of church and state, but it did take away my rest day,” Sachin said. “Today has been busy because people are celebrating and kind of excited, but we were a bit down last night.” All three owners and managers agreed that Sunday will soon become just a regular day of con-

sumption. Minesh and Sachin Patel said they believe, however, that their businesses will not receive the benefit. “Eventually it’s going to be the same thing, as a business owner,” Minesh said, “but for the people of the town, it might be better or more convenient for them.” Package stores selling alcohol on Sunday must apply for a Sunday sales permit, a fee of $570, according to the Athens Banner-Herald. “It will increase our costs and decrease our sales,” Sachin said. “It will benefit the big companies, which were already open on Sunday, like gas stations and grocery stores. They were the ones trying to pass that legislation.” Sachin said he worries the ultimate result is negative for his business in the heart of Five Points. “The bulk of the population buys their groceries on Sundays,” Sachin said, “so out of convenience, they’re going to pick up their alcohol at the grocery

Beginning Sunday, alcohol sales became legal on Sundays in Clarke County after 12:30 p.m. as a result of a July 31 referendum. TAYLOR SUTTON/Staff store, Walmart or any big store. What it will lead to is a big decrease in consumption within our business.” As businesses in the area attempt to adjust to the new regulation, the citizens of Athens have one goal —to enjoy newfound consumer convenience. “It’s about time that people have the right to buy alcohol whenever they want to,” Scott said.

The University’s fundraising has reached a new level of stability according to Tom Landrum, the senior vice president of External Affairs. But the University still lags behind other institutions. Landrum said the University’s fundraising during the last few years is still at the highest levels it has ever been. His comment comes after reports showed that the University had succeeded in raising over $100 million in gifts and new commitments for the seventh consecutive year. Despite the achievement, other nearby institutions have outpaced the University in fundraising. According to a February report by the Center for Aid to Education, which reported on cash gifts but not commitments, the University lagged more than $40 million behind Georgia Tech in 2011. The University was in the middle of the pack among schools in the Southeastern Conference.

The University’s largest supporters were alumni, making up almost half of the total gifts at $42 million. Much of the consistency has come from the University growing and graduating increasingly large classes, Landrum said. With the University’s additions of an engineering program, the College of Public Health and a medical partnership, the University could see further fundraising gains — but not immediately. “It will still take some years before we have a maturing of our alumni base there,” he said. The University has not raised as much money in fiscal year 2012 as in many recent years past, netting $23.5 million less than in fiscal year 2011.

UGA reuses, recycles old Registration to close chairs and desks, saves 100-plus online classes on landfill costs Much of the University’s property is taken away when it’s unwanted, but not always to the dump. It goes to the Property Control Department in the Chicopee Building near the corner of First and Arch streets. “Up until about three years ago, the [Georgia] Department of Administrative Services, which oversees all state property, they said in their texts that state property, when it reached its end of life, had to be destroyed with a blunt object,” said Andrew Lentini, a project coordinator for the University Office of Sustainability. The process was changed soon after the formation of the Office of Sustainability in 2010. Now, there is a hierarchy in place where material has to be offered around campus, the university system and to potential buyers before it can be placed into surplus. Then, if it is determined to have no value, it can be donated to a local nonprofit, according to Lentini. Since the change in policy, the Property Control Department has dramatically decreased the amount of waste and money spent.

Looking for something new to do tonight?

Less than three weeks to claim a spot before they disappear for good. The University will permanently close registration for Independent and Distance Learning courses on Sept. 10. All classes will be finished by next summer. The program offers academic credit for more than 100 online classes through the University Center for Continuing Education. Students can enroll at any time and are given a list of assignments. They then have nine months to finish the coursework at their own pace. As the University phases out this class model, Vice President for Instruction Laura Jolly said each college is now responsible for designing and offering their own online courses. “We’re not likely to have the same range as there is currently in IDL,” she said. “Our goal is that we will have what [online classes] students need … So that may mean more, it might mean less.” The Office of Online Learning will help colleges design these classes. Jolly said they hope to roll out a set of new online courses next summer. “Our goal is not to duplicate the set of courses IDL was offering,” Jolly said. “It’s to say to the faculty, ‘Alright, what are those courses you would like to teach online?’’’

Ready, set, go: How to get on the field for Intramurals by Cody Pace The Red & Black Intramural sports are all the rage here on campus. They serve as stress relief from the daily grind of classes. They’re a great way to meet people with your interests. “I have played intramurals here before and I have always enjoyed it,” said graduate student Jason Bedgood. “Most of the sports include short games and short seasons, so I can easily fit it into my schedule. It also provides a good opportunity for exercise outside of the gym, not to mention you get to interact and compete with other students here on campus.” With just under 5,000 freshmen enrolled this fall, it is important that information on intramural activities is abundant and well advertised. Unfortunately, not all students are in the loop on how to register to play intramural sports. “To be honest, I have no idea,” freshman Bond Foster said. Fortunately Matt Levy, the coordinator for intramural sports, does know. “It should be [an easy process],” Levy stated. “It really would depend [on] if you have a team formed or if you’re an individual trying to form a team or just try-

FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK

Samuel L. Jackson visits Georgia practice sideline The most important question of last Thursday’s practice had to do with actor Samuel L. Jackson’s presence at Georgia practice last Thursday. Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham said he saw the “Snakes on a Plane” star, but was unable to interact with him. The coach didn’t specify a favorite Jackson movie, but praised the actor in general. “I like ‘em all. I like his temperament,” Grantham said. Grantham kicked off the conversation with a discussion of the defense’s priorities in the red zone. “The object when you’re in the end zone is make them kick field goals,” Grantham said. “To do that you’ve gotta stop the run, and force them to throw the ball, and then when they throw the ball, when you’re in tight quarters like that, you gotta match routes quicker and get on guys.” Notes from the backfield

ing to get picked up by a team.” The easy way to find out is to simply go online, look at the sport you want to play, and assemble a team with enough players from people that you know. “If you have a team already in mind, you know, like with friends you want to play with, you would come to the Ramsey Center by the deadline for that sport you wanted to play and you register at the cashier window,” Levy said. Not everybody knows enough people

that would want to play a particular sport when they first arrive on campus. Attendance is highly recommended at the Free Agent Meeting hosted at Ramsey. But if you already missed it, there are other chances to join. “We attempt to put teams together there,” Levy said. “We can’t guarantee anything but we kind of play matchmaker.”

Bulldog players take the Ramsey plunge The Bulldogs visited the Ramsey Center Friday for the annual tradition of eschewing a day of practice for the daunting challenge of the 10-meter board at the Gabrielsen Natatorium’s diving well. “You always try to find a way to trick ‘em,” Georgia head coach Mark Richt said. “Always try to catch ‘em on a day that they just won’t believe that it was gonna happen.” The players said they had some knowledge beforehand. But Richt dismissed those claims as giving his players’ foresight too much credit. “I heard they’ve been tweeting every day for the last two weeks, ‘today’s the day we’re going to Ramsey’,” he said. “So it’s like a bro-

ken clock. It’s gonna be right twice a day.” Richt said that most of the team jumps off the 10-meter board at least once. “We try to get all the freshmen to do it, and then I’ll threaten them if they don’t do it I’m gonna make them run in the morning,” Richt said. “Most of them believe me, and they jump.” On the team’s support RICHT staff, director of football operations Brad Hutcherson had his first experience going off the high board, and defensive end Cornelius Washington had somehow snuck through three years of the tradition without jumping.

“On his own he went and got a life jacket on,” Richt said. “He went up, and he wanted to make sure he had no regrets, leaving Georgia and not jumping off the 10-meter.” One highlight of the event is Richt’s annual backflip into the diving well, memorialized on video in 2010. Richt emphasized that he does the full flip, landing on his feet, not his hands. Richt also commented that as he grows older, the potential danger of the stunt increases. —Robbie Ottley

There are 44 club sports and 20 intramural sports offered at the University, and many of their participants come from the various on-campus clubs and organizations. John Shamoun, a sophomore member of the Chi Psi fraternity, said Greek organizations choose to field intramural sports teams in order to compete against their counterparts and to build brotherhood. “It’s human nature to want to compete and be the best,” Shamoun said. “Competing against other fraternities allows you to prove that your brotherhood is superior [to others] in athletics. You also help build brotherhood by participating in sports [with your brothers].” Fraternities and sororities are not the only campus organizations fielding intramural sports teams. Musical organizations such as the Athens Trombone Association also realize the value of getting involved with recreational sports. Adam Day, president of the Athens Trombone Association, said his organization is looking to have teams in volleyball, dodgeball and softball as a means to relax and have fun. “I enjoy sports, competition and hanging out with my friends,” Day said. “I enjoy getting out there and

running around. I also like that [intramural sports] are affordable.” Even religious organizations have placed a significant importance on their involvement in intramural sports. “Playing intramural sports promotes fellowship and community building,” said Andrew Huang, a member of the Wesley Foundation. Whether it’s to have fun, engage in competition, or to build fellowship, student organizations at UGA look to field intramural sports teams. “It allows people to interact in a safe, yet competitive, environment as a team. This is true with [those in] Greek Life who participate, residence halls who organize hall programs as team events, and much more,” said Matt Levy, an intramural specialist at Ramsey. “The opportunity to interact outside of a classroom setting is very important for a balanced college life.” Students can find more information about intramural sports by visiting the Ramsey Student Center or by visiting their website, www.recsports. uga.edu. — Anthony Alvarez

(Corner) Back in the spotlight Branden Smith set to take leading role on defense

Coaches on the Hot Seat Ryan Black: Joker Phillips — Back-to-back losing seasons, going 6-7 in 2010 and 5-7 last year, is not what people expected of Phillips. In July, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that season ticket sales are down 27 percent compared to last season. If those all-important ticket sales continue to decrease, it will be no laughing matter for Phillips come the end of the season. Robbie Ottley: Derek Dooley — The sonof-Vince-turned-lawyer-turned-football-coach has yet to have a winning overall record or winning SEC record. And in the last seven years Tennessee has had a historically bad run for a historically good team. The Tennessee faithful are looking for a long-term coach who will lead them to national prominence again. And after three trial years, it will become clear that Dooley is not that coach. Nicholas Fouriezos: Will Muschamp — DOOLEY Did you see how quickly people were clamoring for Derek Dooley’s head after only his second season at Tennessee? Now imagine that, except with the added pressure of being only a few years removed from two national championships. Breakout Players RB: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama — First there was Mark Ingram. Then there was Trent Richardson. And now, after biding his KING time behind those two standouts, junior Eddie Lacy finally gets his time to be the go-to player in the Crimson Tide’s backfield. RO: Kiehl Frazier, QB, Auburn — He may be just a sophomore, but Kiehl Frazier is one of the best-prepared young players to step into the quarterback position in the SEC. NF: Tavarres King, WR, Georgia — King has now shown the consistency to truly have a breakout year at the position. He looks confident in his hands, confident in his routes MURRAY and, most importantly, confident in quarterback Aaron Murray, who had trouble linking up with him on deep routes last season. King should establish himself as the top wideout without Malcolm Mitchell in the mix. Players who must perform RB: Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU — LSU had it all last season. Well, except for a reliable quarterback. That being said, there is perhaps no one with more pressure on his shoulders this season than one Mr. Zach Mettenberger. RO: Marcus Lattimore, TB, South Carolina — On the list of players most crucial to their team’s success in 2012, running back Marcus Lattimore towers over any other single player. NF: Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia — it’s been the big games that have plagued Murray, who was 0-5 in his first five games against ranked opponents. Georgia, and even more so Murray, need a victory over a serious contender.

by Robbie Ottley The Red & Black Branden Smith had a lot of growing up to do. The cornerback’s defensive contributions in his first two years at Georgia weren’t insignificant — a handful of tackles and a pair of interceptions. But this year, Smith is the toast of practice. He’s been praised by Georgia head coach Mark Richt, defensive coordinator Todd Grantham and many of his fellow players. “Branden’s done a real good job,” Grantham said. “He’s another one of the guys that year one to year two he was significantly better.” This year, Smith has become a central part of a Georgia defense expected to be one of the best in the nation. “He’s really tried to be a very fundamental corner for us, and do all the things we ask corners to do,” Grantham said. “We’re expecting big things out of him, and we’re kinda leaning on him to be productive for us.” Smith said he’s matured considerably in the past year, thanks to the support of his teammates, which allowed him to develop further as a player. “I had my team behind me no matter what. We’re just all working together,” he said. “It’s just motivation to get to our destination this year.” With his new veteran status, Smith has become an important role model for younger players. Cornerback Malcolm Mitchell has found Smith to be a key resource, as he adjusts to the switch from wide receiver. “I’ve got a question, he’s gonna help. And he’s gonna give me the knowledge that he has about a certain situation or how to play it or what to do,” Mitchell said. Neither Mitchell nor Smith are shy about approaching each other with the intent of improving their play, even if that sometimes means criticism on the practice field. “If I have a question I’ll go

Senior cornerback Branden Smith is ready to play after being cleared of a drug possession charge this spring. erin o. smith/Staff right up to him and ask him,” Mitchell said. “And if he sees something I did wrong he’ll come to me.” Another point of maturation has related to Smith’s offseason travails. He was arrested for marijuana possession in Alabama in the spring, and consequently faced a suspension. But the expected suspension didn’t come to fruition, Smith passed two drug tests shortly after the arrest, assuaging the concerns of Richt and his program. Smith said he is pleased with having his name cleared and looks forward to playing in a game he might have missed. Still, the defensive backs face the temporary loss of cornerback Sanders Commings and the potential absence of safety Bacarri Rambo to suspensions to start the season. Smith believes his unit will come together to successfully offset those losses, particularly thanks to their athletic talent. “We got a couple of guys missing, but at the same time we’re one team,” he said. “Everybody has a scholarship, so they’re not here for no reason.” All the defensive backs are

working to replace Brandon Boykin, the one defensive back who departed permanently. Boykin, the Georgia cornerback drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles, was crucial to a defense that led the Bulldogs to an SEC East title last season. “Boykin … led the team,” Smith said. “He was the leader and everybody just followed behind him.” Boykin won’t be easy to replace and his statistical accomplishments may be difficult for the Bulldogs to replicate. But the intangible contributions are the most important holes to fill, and in his senior season, Smith is stepping up to fill them. Smith knows that he won’t have an opportunity to wear the red and black after his senior season. And with his improvements in the offseason and in practice, he hopes to leave Georgia with no regrets. “This is my last go-around and I just gotta make something happen,” he said. “Last year I did pretty good, and this year I just gotta do better.”

Erin O. smith/Staff To him, Hall has the one intangible thing that eclipses all others, the one thing that compensates for deficits in physical attributes or athletic ability. “He’s got heart. He loves this game more than anything,” Andrews said. “That’s what really makes you a football player.”

To say Merritt Hall came out of nowhere isn’t entirely true. The redshirt freshman played at Wesleyan School in Norcross, one of the most successful high school football programs in the state in the last half-decade. Perhaps not coincidentally, that run of success paralleled Hall’s time there from 2008 to 2011. The last three years of his prep career, he was an all-state defender as a linebacker and won individual awards at both the region and state level. But when it came time to start looking at colleges, the offers didn’t exactly come in droves. Actually, they hardly came at all. Hall received letters from Wake Forest, Air Force, Georgia Southern, Furman and Jacksonville State, among others. None of them extended him an actual scholarship, though, instead trying to sell him on the opportunity of being a preferred walk-on. Why the lack of interest in such an accomplished high school player? “I have no idea. I’ve asked myself the same question,” Hall said. “I don’t know. I guess they didn’t have enough scholarships or they just didn’t see a fit for me in their program, which is fine, because I love where I’m at right now.” As he well should — he was awarded a scholarship earlier this month by the Georgia coaching staff. On top of that, Hall has been tabbed the starter at fullback heading into Saturday’s season opener against Buffalo. Things haven’t always been so glamorous for Hall, though. After deciding to walk-on at Georgia last fall, he took his lumps on the scout team. Hall admitted having the same doubts many lesser-known players at large programs deal with. “I had thoughts, ‘Gosh, these coaches, I don’t even know if they know who I am,’” he said. “You kind of get that feeling, but you’ve just got to persevere through that

and keep grinding.” The Bulldogs’ starting center, David Andrews, shares a close bond with Hall, part of a friendship that traces its roots back to middle school. Like Hall, he had to come to grips with hardly seeing the field his first year in Athens. “You come in here as a freshman, you go from high school [where] you’re playing every Friday night and you come here and you’re not,” Andrews said. “That’s an adjustment everyone has to make and that was tough for Merritt. I just told him, ‘Keep working, keep working. We’re going to get our shot this spring.’” Hall didn’t let the opportunity to impress coaches and teammates in the spring pass him by. He played so well that he caught the eye of the man at the helm of the Bulldogs’ program. Georgia head coach Mark Richt jokingly said he “didn’t even know who he was” until Hall announced his presence by taking home the “outstanding walkon” award for the offense. “I say ‘I didn’t know who he was,’ [but] I knew who he was,” Richt said. “But I didn’t start to notice him as a football player — as a Georgia Bulldog football player — until I saw him start blocking people in the spring. He got my attention pretty quick.” The physicality of his game is what makes Hall so hard to ignore — just ask offensive lineman Chris Burnette. “I remember one play he ran up through the hole on a lead block, and I heard a nice little lick behind me,” the right guard said. “You could hear it and I knew it was him. Then on the next play he ran into my back, and I was like, ‘Dude, what are you doing?’ And he said, ‘Man, that last play had me seeing stars.’ That just shows how hard he plays and how hard he goes. He’s never afraid of a lick, and that’s what you need in a fullback.” What you need even more is something that can’t be measured in height and weight, according to Andrews.

Gymnastics team undergoes changes New coach, new style for Georgia Gym Dogs By Elizabeth Grimsley The Red & Black

Georgia defender Rebekah Perry was one of three players named to the Kansas Invitational AllTournament team. FILE/Staff

Georgia soccer players named to All-Tournament Team Three Georgia soccer players have earned another award to add to their resumes. Bulldog freshman Bella Hartley, junior defender Torri Allen and senior defender Rebekah Perry were each named to the Kansas Invitational AllTournament Team Sunday, for their play in the event. Hartley scored two goals in the Bulldogs’ 5-0 win over South Dakota State to earn the team leads in both goals (3) and points (6), in just four outings. Allen and Perry helped the Georgia back-

line to Sunday’s shutout of the Jackrabbits, and were part of a defense that only allowed one goal all weekend. The Bulldogs finished the tournament in second place behind the Kansas Jayhawks, the tournament’s hosts, who defeated Georgia 1-0 on Friday night. Georgia finished ahead of UNLV and South Dakota State, who both went 0-1-1 in the tournament. — Connor Smolensky

It may feel like just another semester for most Georgia students, but for the Gym Dogs, this year brings many changes. “We’ve started doing gymnastics a lot earlier than before,” junior Kaylan Earls said. “I think that just really gets us prepared for mandatory when it starts, so it doesn’t take us as long to get back into the swing of things.” Mandatory workouts start on Sept. 18, but until then the Georgia gymnastics team is focused on preparation. “We had a test on our conditioning when we first got back,” senior Shayla Worley said. “It really made sure we were motivated during the summer since we’re not required to be here.” First-year Georgia head coach Danna Durante’s reasoning behind the test was to get the team thinking solely about gymnastics after an emotional end to last year. “With all of the changes that went on, it’s like a divorce; it’s hard,” Durante said. “Nobody wanted it; these guys didn’t understand it. We felt horrible because those folks on that staff are our friends. We told them, ‘We understand, and we’ll help you get through this, give you your space, this is a difficult time emotionally, but remember you did come here to do gymnastics and this is Georgia.’” Although the coaches can’t require actual gymnastics with the team until Sept. 18, they are allowed to schedule various skills tests throughout the preseason. However, it’s hard to motivate

Georgia gymnastics head coach Danna Durante said that last season’s finish was “like a divorce” for her athletes, but still stressed team work ethic for 2012. Courtesty University of California Athletics and get the team in the gym when there are NCAA regulations in place. “We can do some skills testing,” Durante said. “We can only have four athletes in the gym at a time, so we put out a couple of [skill] testing dates saying what’s going to happen, and who’s coming in when, so we’re following the rules, but it’s also given them a goal of, ‘okay, I want to make sure I’m ready for this.’” The change is evident in the gym from past years. “Everybody’s in the gym and getting moving a lot sooner than

normal,” Earls said. “We’re doing more skills. Before it would be like we’d go and practice beam and that would be it for the day. Now we do two or three events or do drills or whatever we need to do before mandatory.” And the players recognize that things are different — even when just considering the small, everyday things. “We’re still doing yoga on Wednesday mornings,” Worley said. “But we are now alternating with Pilates as well.”

BASKETBALL NOTEBOOK

Depth not a concern but defense needs improving WELCOME BACK STUDENTS!

706.369.5098 | 2434 W. Broad St.

The Georgia men’s basketball team was noted for its defense last season, allowing only 63 points per game, and had a positive turnover margin of 1.2. Yet, in the team’s trip to Italy this summer, where it played two Italian professional teams and one Lithuanian professional team, Mark Fox said his team’s defense was not where it was last year. “Our defense was awful. We gave up 94 points one game. I’ll be honest with you, in just 10 practices you just don’t have the time to implement all the things you want to,” Fox said. “So we try to give a basic shell of our offensive foundation and a basic shell of our defensive foundation.” Depth not an issue for new-look Bulldogs The Bulldogs have a lot more depth than they did last year, and some spots are still up for grabs. Georgia returns starters at center and power forward, with sophomores Donte Williams and Nemanja Djurisic having played major roles last season. Shooting guard/for-

ward Kentavious Caldwell-Pope returns for his sophomore season, fresh off a Southeastern Conference First Team All-Freshman year, and Marcus Thornton is returning from an ongoing knee injury. Other than that, it’s up in the air. “I look at our team we have some really good competition across the board. I think Kenny Gaines comes in with some playmaking ability at the two spot, which makes that battle fun to watch every day,” Fox said. “Obviously at the three, when Marcus gets healthy, we can play Kentavious there, we can play Sherrard Brantley there too. I think we have some real depth that we haven’t had before.” Suspension status uncertain for junior It is still unknown whether junior forward Donte Williams will be suspended for being charged with possession of marijuana in the offseason. The subject was mentioned three different times throughout the press conference and Fox grew more and more agitated with each ques-

Georgia basketball head coach Mark Fox refused to comment on the situation of forward Donte Williams “at this time or ever.” c.b. schMelter/Staff tion. Here is how it happened: The first time Fox was asked about the rising junior, a reporter asked him for an update on Williams. “I don’t really have anything more to say about Donte,” Fox said. “All those returning guys on the trip, I think they were all just solid. They played a little more like experienced guys.” A different reporter then compared the situation to that of Georgia football player Branden Smith, who was charged with possession of marijuana after a traffic stop,

and was not given any suspension. “I got no idea what you’re talking about,” Fox said. “I follow football really closely but I don’t know.” Finally a reporter asked if Williams would be suspended or not, and Fox answered the question immediately. “Like I said I have nothing further to add on Donte at this time or ever,” he said. — Connor Smolensky

Not-so-tidy ending for ‘Breaking Bad’ season

University students are active on multiple online dating sites: OkCupid, Grindr and myfreecams.com, to name a few. photo illustration by C.B. schmelter/Staff

How the Internet links dating, ‘camgirling,’ everyone else By ADAM CARLSON The Red & Black Editor’s note: Senior reporter Adam Carlson wanted to write about relationships, so he decided to write about online dating. The Internet necessarily involves you and everyone around you, and so requires certain self-reflection. The girl Taking her clothes off online the first time wasn’t for money. That came later. A recent University alumna, Felix — like the cat, but not — knows that “camgirling,” or performing on (online) camera for an (online) audience, isn’t analogous to sex work. It is sex work. “But my approach to it is just like, ‘Hello, I’m pretty hypersexual anyway and here I am. You’re doing something for me; I’m doing something for you,” Felix said. Felix — who requested anonymity and spoke under a pseudonym — has goals, but not the funds to accomplish them. She’s got an English degree with an eye toward a graduate degree in sex education. Plus she’s got this friend who’s been doing it a bit longer than she has, and this friend has, in just a few weeks, made more than $1,000. “The money is a big motivating factor,” Felix said. It might as well be the only one, but it’s not. Felix uses myfreecams.com — an interface offset by a green background a palm tree icon in the top-left corner. It’s a hideous site, but it pays well, comparatively. It’s the best she knew of, which is one reason she chose it. The site also lets users block both specific IP addresses and whole states from accessing their feeds. Felix blocks two states: Georgia and North Carolina. There are even rules about what behavior users can and cannot show. It’s pretty narrow, Felix said: no “weird, fetish-y” things — no urination or excretion or animals. In fact, there’s a strong subset of the site dedicated to companionship, which fits with Felix well. “It felt a lot like filling out an online dating profile,” she said — although she doesn’t use online dating sites regularly. The effort isn’t worth the payoff. The guy I met Peter Hill, who graduated in May with a degree in geography and a music business certificate, through a mutual friend. Our mutual friend met him through OkCupid, a free online

dating site. Often, Hill has found that conversations on OkCupid don’t progress much. But he’s developed an approach beyond that, including finding common ground through a shared favorite TV show. “And then the other part of it’s just asking questions about them,” Hill said, “and, y’know, learning about what they experience, are doing and are interested in.” Hill has never met someone in a bar. Other friends have, sure, maybe. Plus people used to write letters or make phone calls to stay connected, Hill said. Why should it matter now that they use the Internet? Hill has met four people through the website. Two of them live in Athens. He dated one of the girls, though not one of the two in Athens. For their first date, he chose carefully, meeting her at a pool hall in Decatur and then heading to a library. He gave them each 10 minutes to go and find the best book they could. Three months later, they broke up. It wasn’t their having met online that killed the relationship. It was the distance.

When this season of “Breaking Bad” began, there were worries that a great show was beginning the dragging-on decline most television shows are doomed to take. Still, the season ended with great potential. Walt was no longer trapped working for Gus’s meth operation. He could have gone home completely separated from meth and from his very dramatic year. But the writers decided to make Walt a greedy, power hungry drug lord who still wanted to make billions of dollars. Clearly this was going to get very violent, very fast. For sensitive ears and untrained eyes, spoilers and all that jazz. Walt killed Mike. His biggest mistake came right at the end. If this episode really told you anything, it’s that he really likes his pleases and thank yous. Mike didn’t say thank you. Now Walt killed a guy who has connections with people who solely work in

“Breaking Bad” follows addled adventures and a powerful cast. Courtesy AMC the business of killing. Walt needs to make friends fast if he is going to have a chance. At least they killed off Mike with style, which a great character deserves. His last line, “Shut the fork up, and let me die in peace,” was amazing, and I can’t wait to see more. —Wes Mayer

Me Imagine there’s a spectrum. Imagine that Peter Hill and Felix are two parts of it, maybe even ends. I’m somewhere in the middle. Last week, my sister’s boyfriend went back to Iowa. They’ve been dating since December and have spent more months through webcams than together. I wanted, when I was first breaking this story in my head, to talk to people — normal people, like me and most everyone I knew — who had dabbled in online dating or sex and had been traumatized, shocked or else brushed up against it in some comic or outsized way. Comedy and outsizing makes for good storytelling. I like to tell good stories. But then I found Peter Hill and Felix saw through their stories — both exactly what I thought I wanted when I started and nothing like it at all. Hill’s normalcy and Felix’s presence of mind made me itch. There’s something to that, I thought. So I wrote this, wherein nothing is normal or abnormal. It just happens often or it doesn’t. Alfred Kinsey said that, right? And he wasn’t even online.

John Lynch, director of bands at the Hugh Hodgson School of Music, conducts research on contemporary music. EVAN STICHLER/Staff

Hugh Hodgson director’s musical passion leads to creativity recognition Excellence in research participates with excellence in conducting and teaching. For John Lynch, director of bands at the Hugh Hodgson School of Music, this has been a guiding pricipal. Lynch, who recently received the University’s Creative Research Medal, distinguishes himself through his interdisciplinary work with the University’s English, theatre and dance departments. He also conducts research on contemporary music through the “next festival of conteporary music,” the University Wind Ensemble. Even with all these accomplishments, the award was a surprise.

“I was not expecting it,” Lynch said. “I was really excited.” Anatoly Sheludyakov performs Stravinsky’s “Concerto for Piano & Wind Instruments” and D. Ray McClellan performs “Tower Ascending,” a composition that Lynch commissioned from composer Wayne Oquin. Soprano Ellen Ritchey rounds out the performance with “Words of Love” composed by James Mobberley and co-commissioned by the University. Although Lynch’s award highlights his research, he dedicates himself to teaching. His 26 years of teaching experience

span secondary and post-secondary institutions, including MonroeWoodbury High School in New York, Emory University, Northwestern University and the University of Kansas. Eventually, he returned to Georgia. “I think of myself as number one, a teacher and number two, a performer,” Lynch said. “[Research and teaching] definitely go hand-in-hand. The creative side [involved in research] makes us more invigorating and creative as teachers.” —Nat Fort

LISTEN UP! ‘Moon Moods’ by Diva Think of “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Then imagine Stanley Kubrick asked Lady Gaga, Madonna and Daft Punk to write a collaborative soundtrack for his groundbreaking film. That soundtrack would be Diva’s “Moon Moods.” It’s a trippy, psychedelic album that has a consistent theme and feel. Not unpleasant. Unfortunately, the album starts with the worst song, “Wanna Get to Know You.” Diva’s vocals are lacking throughout the song, and the background beats are uninteresting and simple. About halfway through the song, I wanted to eject the disk and push forward with a scathing review. But resistance was

worth it. “Moon Moods” is actually an interesting listen. I’m not sure I’d say its a good album, but its unheard-of sound makes it worth a shot. Diva relies heavily on both electronic and pop to form her authentic sound. Right when you think a song’s going to be heavy on pop, she throws in a crazy background beat that makes you feel like you’re floating around in space. Her heavy use of space imagery in her lyrics and her final-frontier-inspired beats give the album an unfamiliar feel. The album definitely has a couple of stand out tracks including “Inverted Image” and “Smooth Ride.” Blasphemous as this may be, “Inverted Image” sounds like a slower, female version of The Beatles’ “Oc-

topus’s Garden.” I’m not saying the song will have anywhere near the lasting appeal, but it has slight hints and catches to bring back nostalgia. It’s also one of the spacier songs on the album. While you’re listening to it, you feel like you’re slowly being sucked into a black hole. There’s nothing you can do about it, and you find that you’re okay with that. The next song, “Smooth Ride,” reminds strongly of a Madonna song with its catchy beat and solid vocals. The difference is that Diva invites the listener to “... ride this cosmic ship smoothly into paradise.” The song also features a saxophone which adds a hint of jazz and ties the song together well.

LISTEN UP! ‘Eating Chicken’ by Decomposure Decomposure’s “Eating Chicken” is like a pouch of Pop Rocks for your ears. Fun. Crazy. Unpredictable. The second you hit the play button you can’t help but be drawn in by Decomposure’s captivating beats. Your ears tingle and the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Like it to not, you’re hooked. It quickly becomes apparent that Decomposure’s taking you through twists and turns, and the best way to take this journey is by simultaneously relaxing and holding on for your life. Decomposure’s labeled as an electronic artist, but that label’s a huge generalization. Almost every song features electronic beats, but unlike most electronic artists, Decomposure uses his voice as much as he uses his synthesizer. In fact, some songs feature no beats at all and instead focus on beautiful instrumental backgrounds. In those songs, Decomposure’s voice sounds almost identical to Bon Iver singer Justin Vernon. Bon Iver — a band that normally doesn’t come to mind with electronic albums. “Eating Chicken” is a complete break from established genres and challenges the notion of traditional music. The thing that makes Decomposure such an intriguing artist is that he’s constantly creating different and unconventional music.

“Nashville Fade,” for example, is an amazing and beautiful song. It evokes a deep emotion in your chest and the back of your throat; you can’t put your finger on why. I was content to stare blankly at my wall and let his voice wash over me. On the other hand, “Oh Brother” starts with a tune that sounds like it comes directly from Super Mario 64. As the song continues, instruments are included, and it somehow works perfectly. Decomposure’s talent and groundbreaking style make this album a hidden gem worth listening to. While this album’s far less predictable than Pop Rocks it might just be more fun to sample. —Ashton Moss

Q&A: Producing ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ “Beasts of the Southern Wild” is magical realism set in an unreal bayou. “Beasts” focuses “The Bathtub” — an island surrounded by water with levies doomed to fail. Although the movie is a loosely based allegory on Hurricane Katrina, more important is the community’s hero, Hushpuppy. Michael Gottwald, producer of “Beasts,” partnered with the University’s Grady College, Franklin College and the Department of Film to host a Q&A about the movie at Cine. The Red & Black spoke with Gottwald about the film, casting from local communities and making independent movies under difficult conditions.

R&B: “Beasts of the Southern Wild” has received an astonishing critical response. Does such wide acclaim validate all the hard hours of work making the film yourselves? MG: Yeah, yeah it does. It feels like, I don’t know, it’s a special kind of thing. It came together in a very particular way that involved a lot of work. So we thought that we were working on something special at the time, but we never really knew how the world would respond to it. And it was so widely embraced really makes it feel like what we did is beyond us, it’s bigger than us, that it could be transferable. R&B: Critics have praised “Beasts of the Southern Wild” for its casting. How difficult was it to cast this film? MG: Casting was mostly my primary responsibility on the film. We were never interested in finding actors for these roles. We were going to make a film about Louisiana with Louisianans in it. Mission number one was to find Hushpuppy [the film’s protagonist]. She’s got to be a girl that’s very much of the area who has never acted before, etc., etc. Eventually through sheer perseverance of being extremely thorough if you look that hard you will find somebody special for sure. R&B: You worked with filmmaking group Court 13 on the production of this film. Could you describe Court 13’s approach towards filmmaking and how that affected the production of the film? MG: Court 13 is an idea more than it is an organization, a strict organization with members, or anything like that. . . The general idea is that everyone stops what they are doing and throws their whole entire life into the assembly of this crazy project, whatever it is. [You] sort of live in totally immersing yourself into the project, you kind of live a little bit of what is going on in the film. —Trey Barnett

Gearing Up for Gameday: 5 boutiques for Bulldog-worthy dresses By KAT DRERUP The Red & Black Shopping is a sport, especially in Athens. Sales are competitions, outfits require strategies and at the end of the trip, someone always scores. These truths are compounded when shopping for the perfect Gameday outfit. Luckily, most stores downtown offer friendly service and wide-selection, making shopping an easy success. To make your football-season-planning simpler, The Red & Black has put together a list of the top five boutiques in town. It may not help the Dawgs win, but it will make cheering them on in style an easier venture.

5. Entourage

Located on South Milledge, Entourage is one of the most popular places to get a dress for game day. They have an entire section devoted to red and black apparel. “They always have cute Gameday clothes,” said Brooke Hrouda, a senior Public Relations major from Canton. “Entourage is the first place I look.” The best part about Entourage? You don’t have to fight for parking downtown

— at least, not all the time. Fall Fridays do get packed with girls swarming the racks to find the perfect dress. But new clothing and apparel come out weekly, and for your convenience the store sends you email and text updates on exclusive sales.

4. Cillies

Located at 175 East Clayton Street, Cillies is like a vintage Plato’s Closet. Similar to a modern version of your grandmother’s attic, it is packed with designer jeans, Louis Vuitton-like purses and cowboy boots that are already broken in. Cillies takes gently used items — essentially anything whether it be vintage, old school trends or hipster. When you walk in, it is chaotically overwhelming, with overflowing racks, wall space utilized for hanging purses and jewelry overlapping on tables. You could spend hours inside. It takes a minute to mentally prepare yourself to sift through all the hidden treasures inside. However, the manager is super chill and if you are selling clothes she is willing to negotiate if you want store credit.

3. The Red Dress Boutique

The Red Dress Boutique is classy and sophisticated. The girls who work there are friendly, often start you a fitting room when your hands are full and offer insight on how to mix and match a new pair of colored jeans. Located at 147 College Avenue, the store includes fashionable dresses that hang on neatly organized racks and jewelry different from other boutiques in town. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out their website. It is eye-catching and easy to navigate with helpful tabs. They even have a “notify of restock” link in case they sold out of your favorite dress. The Red Dress Boutique is also known for its stellar sales.

2. Cheeky Peach

Cheeky Peach — the name itself entices shoppers to check it out, with its Georgia pride-infused catchy name. This boutique, located at 269 North Hull Street, may be small, but the atmosphere puts shoppers at ease and the customer service exceeds expectations with a more personal touch. The owner may well in fact be the warmest boutique proprietor in Athens. The

Cillies Clothing is located at 175 E. Clayton St. in Athens, Ga. 20601. Sean Taylor/Staff store is also known for doing sorority specials throughout the semester. “I love the variety of styles found at Cheeky Peach,” said Katie Beth Lusk a senior majoring in International Affairs and Women’s Studies from Fayetteville. “They have a great selection of classic mixed with trendy pieces to help create my new favorite outfit.” Everything is less than $100, which may seem pricy at first, but will seem like a steal when compared to Heery’s Clothes Closet and Encore.

1. Private Gallery

Private Gallery may be a chain store, but it is definitely worth mentioning. The clothes are always funky and stylish, shoes line the back walls and jewelry is delicately placed on shelves. They also have a frequent shopper card that earns you points on each purchase. Private Gallery even has some of the same clothing as Fabr’k, which is located next door, for up to a $10 difference.
