has all the records: now he wants a title

By the time Aaron Murray is done at the University of Georgia, he will likely be No. 1 in every major SEC passing category, but the only No. 1 he cares about is in this year’s final BCS poll. Murray opted to bypass the 2012 NFL Draft and come back for his senior season, and has a very realistic chance of breaking four more SEC and three more Georgia records in his final season. But breaking records are the furthest things from Murray’s mind — all he wants is a championship. “It’s all about winning. That’s the reason I came back this year, to win some championships, to help lead this team in the right direction, and that’s really all that matters,” Murray said. Along his journey as a three-year starter, Murray has already become the only quarterback in the SEC to pass for 3,000 yards in three consecutive seasons, owns the Georgia career passing touchdown record (95), broke the Georgia single-season passing record (3,893 yards), retains the Georgia single-season passing touchdowns record (36) and owns the Georgia career record for passing yards by a

freshman, sophomore and junior. The Bulldogs came within four yards of an SEC title and a trip to the BCS National Championship Game last season against Alabama. Had the Bulldogs won that game, things may have turned out drastically different. Murray may have gone to the draft, the No. 5 Bulldogs may not be ranked as highly and Georgia’s offense may not be considered one of the most dynamic units in all of college football. Football is supposed to be a team sport, but Murray is a player whom Georgia’s entire squad revolves around. “He brings stability, kind of [a] security blanket knowing you have a guy that’s not prone to mistakes, understands the offense just as much as the coaches do,” senior tight end Arthur Lynch said. “Obviously loads of experience that you can’t really teach and he has had success every year he has started from his redshirt freshman year to his redshirt junior year.” “I don’t really see any drops in the levels of success that he has, but I think at a confident standpoint, our offense and defense and special teams know that we have a guy under center that will put us in a position to win every game.” Being “that guy” might sound all fine and dandy, but it comes with a price.

For grad students, ticket troubles persist BY CAILIN O'BRIEN @cobrien18 One thing is for sure — come Sept. 7, about 16,000 students will fill Sanford Stadium. But how all of those students got there turned out to be of a more complicated matter. Even though 17,300 students were awarded tickets this season, the implementation of a new graduate ticket policy and an apparent “miscalculation” in ticket awards led to about “200 or 300” angry students and campus-wide ticket frenzy. Eric Ekwueme, a student enrolled in UGA’s bachelor’s/master’s program, has earned 140 undergraduate credit hours since 2009. He said that’s why he was shocked when he logged into his email last week to discover that he hadn’t received a single football ticket for this season — home or away. “The University prides itself in having a really cool program where they allow the students to do a bachelors and masters,” he said in a previ-

ous Red & Black article. “I’m lucky enough to say I’ve had four years of football tickets, but for a lot of my friends, this is their last year and they’re not getting the chance to have those tickets.” Ekwueme wasn’t alone. About 140 dual enrolled students were left without football tickets. The next afternoon, those same confused students received an email awarding them full season home game tickets and apologizing for an apparent glitch in the system. “We ran into a miscalculation as far as how the hours are displayed,” UGA Director of Athletics Greg McGarity told The Red & Black. McGarity refused to go into further detail about how the error occurred. “Let’s just say it’s been corrected,” he said. “I’m not interested in pointing fingers here. The bottom line is we were able to discover where the discrepancy was and able to handle it very quickly.” But while McGarity told The Red

David c. bristow/Staff & Black that “all is well” now that dual enrolled students have been “made whole,” ticket frenzy continues. While dual-enrolled students grappled with their ticket issues, hundreds of new graduate students, many who attended UGA as undergradu-

ates, found they hadn’t accumulated enough hours to qualify for away game tickets. They would be unable to attend the first game of the season at Clemson University. See TICKETS, Page 3

POLICE BLOTTER UGA student’s money ‘snatched’ downtown

ering getting a cab home, when Nash “came up to him and grabbed the $120 out of his hand.” When the friends of the victim followed Nash and told him that they were going to call the cops, Nash reportedly told them that “he was an undercover cop and that he would tell the police that they were trying to buy drugs from him.” He reportedly handed them $60 and “asked that the cops not be called and to pretend that this never happened.” While the officer was talking with the victims and witnesses, he noticed $60 in rocks by a fence nearby, in the direction that Nash came from. The victim and the witnesses all reportedly said they were not trying to buy drugs. The officer arrested Nash for robbery on the foundation that the victim and witnesses statements were consistent but that

A University of Georgia student had $120 “snatched” out of his hand while he was standing on the corner of College Avenue downtown Sunday at 2:14 a.m., according to an Athens-Clarke County Police report. When the responding officer arrived, one of the witnesses, a friend of the victim, was reportedly running toward the officer, pointing at a man who matched the description of the man who stole the money. The man, Martavin Nash, 27, was reportedly walking “calmly” toward the officer; a behavior that the officer reportedly said was “odd.” The victim reportedly told the officer that he had been counting money on the corner because he and his friends were consid-

Employee reports threatening note left on her car A University of Georgia employee returned to her car Thursday at 5 p.m. to find a note that she “considered to be threatening in nature,” according to a University of Georgia police report. She said the note could have been left on her car, which was parked in the East Campus Village surface lot, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. She did not know who had left the note. — Jana French

Student charged with DUI after turning right at red light A University of Georgia student was arrested and charged with DUI Friday at 3:17 a.m. after turning right at a red light before stopping, according to an Athens-Clarke County Police report. When the police officer approached the driver, Mark Shurett, 20, he “detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from within his vehicle,” and noticed his eyes were “extraordinarily red and watery.” Shurett reportedly said he had not been drinking that night. He declined a field sobriety test, reportedly saying “he did not think it would be necessary.” When the officer tried to place him in handcuffs, Shurett reportedly turned away and said, “You have no right!” The officer was able to place Shurett under arrest. At the police station, he reportedly said that he had had two beers earlier that day, but thought that he would be below the legal limit. In his breathalyzer test, he showed to have 0.062 and 0.056 blood alcohol level. Shurett declined to comment to The Red & Black. — Jana French

UGA student reports battery after a night downtown A University of Georgia student was shoved to the ground at Lumpkin Street and Hancock Avenue Friday at 2:20 a.m. after refusing to have sex with a man who had been driving her home from downtown, according to an Athens-Clarke County police report. The victim had a small cut on her knee and there are no suspects at the time. — Jana French

Police patrol dangerous intersection By Brad Mannion @madbrannion Police have been waiting at the intersection of South Lumpkin Street and Baxter Street, but University of Georgia Police Chief Jimmy Williamson said this is not a case of “gotcha policing.” “They think we’re trying to get them for not crossing the street right,” he said. “All I’m trying to do is not get them run over. The bottom line is we’re over there trying to prevent someone from getting injured.” As construction of the new Bolton Dining Hall goes into its fourth month, sidewalks leading to several on-campus residence halls from Baxter Street to Lumpkin Street remain barred from use. This has caused a “perfect storm” for the students living in the residence halls located near Baxter Street, Williamson said. “You got Brumby, Russell, Creswell,” he said. “Each one of those house over 900 people, and most of them come out there, and they come straight to that sidewalk going to the two buildings, and the most popular buildings on campus are on that intersection.” For the past few weeks, police have been present at the corner to help pedestrians follow the laws, but only “98 percent” of the people crossing that intersection follow the rules, Williamson said. “We re-routed traffic at those intersections with barricades and signs, but unfortunately, some people, for whatever reasons, have a hard

Fake ID-finding app not a fix for Athens By Laura James The Red & Black There’s nothing fake about college fraudulant ID use. “There are statistics saying that about 32 percent of young adults, by the time they’re a sophomore [in college], have a fake ID,” said Nelson Ludlow, the CEO of a company called Intellicheck Mobilisa. His company developed a mobile application that could help solve this problem — barZapp. BarZapp allows the cameras of iPhones, iPod touches and iPads to scan drivers licenses, identification cards and military IDs to gather the encoded information in the bar codes and magnetic strips and verify the authenticity through Intellicheck Mobilisa’s patented ID Check software. The app is available for $1.99 for a version that can scan up to 10 IDs a day. To scan more than 10 IDs, the user must purchase a subscription for $19.95 a month, Ludlow said. Natalie Robertson, a senior advertising major from Newnan, said ID is never checked by any technology or verification system any of the times she has

time following that direction,” Williamson said. “If I can’t get you to comply with me, asking or telling you to, then I’m going to have to do something that takes it up another level.” Williamson said one reported incident occurred as of Tuesday, but the issue centered around the use of a fake ID. Williamson said the presence proved beneficial, and he looks to clear the corner of an officer because pedestrians and drivers have been safer. “Things have calmed down a lot, so I don’t even know if we are going to be there much longer,” he said. In the past, the Baxter and Lumpkin Street intersection was the site of several deaths as a result of pedestrian issues. “Unfortunately, we didn’t realize we had pedestrian problems until we had three of our pedestrians killed in one year,” Williamson said. UGA baseball player Chance Veazy was driving his scooter at the same intersection and was hit and left paralyzed in October 2009. Since the incidents, UGA PD has worked with UGA to supply motivation for students and other pedestrians to follow traffic laws. Williamson looked ahead to 2015, when construction to add to the Terry College of Business is set to be in its “largest phase,” according to the Building Terry website . “I wouldn’t be afraid to say that you might see it again not this coming summer,” he said, “but the summer after when we start the construction project for the business school’s building on the opposite corner.”

gone to bars and restaurants in downtown Athens. “Of course the bars want to stay out of trouble, but I don’t know if they’d want this app to keep a record of it because then there’s proof that the ID is fake rather than when they usually just say, ‘Oh, you’re good,’” she said. Jeff Delaney, general manager at The Globe, said he might consider using something like barZapp to catch fake IDs. “It is a concern here,” he said. “We check IDs, and we do it profusely. So yeah, an app like that would be pretty useful.” But Jeff Mabry, general manager at The Volstead Bar & Grill, said he couldn't see the value of the app for his bar. “Personally, I wouldn’t use it because of liability reasons like if it messes up,” Mabry said. “At the same time, I already pay people to be at the door. I wouldn’t want to have another expense on top of that.” Jimmy Williamson, chief of police for the UGA Police Department, said barZapp isn’t necessarily an easy fix for bars. “If all the bars start using it, people are going to get smart and

come up with a way to invent that data that the app is reading,” Williamson said. But he also said he does not want to “discourage” anybody from using barZapp. “I think anything that you’re doing to establish that an ID is legitimate is a good measure,” he said. Ludlow made distinctions between barZapp and other ID verification technologies on the market. “It’s got a couple advantages,” Ludlow said. “One of them is that you can do it right on your iPhone — you don’t need extra equipment. [Another reason] is we have patented technology in how to read the back of drivers licenses.” Ludlow said Intellicheck Mobilisa's experience as a company sets them apart. “We’ve been doing this a long time,” he said. “We started out doing contracts for NCIS, the Naval Criminal Investigative Services. They had us build ID card readers to see who was coming on military bases, [using] basically the same technology applied to the underage drinking problem.” Ludlow said barZap is still in its initial launch version.

Former long snapper turned ‘Double Dawg’ Ty Frix tells his ticket tale

L

ike so many other rabid Georgia fanatics, I too sat in front of my computer last Thursday impatiently hitting refresh as waited for “the email”: the tangible confirmation that I would be making the trip to Clemson. For the first time in the last five years, I would be watching my team, and now my brother, from the stands. My transition from player to spectator was a move that I had long feared, yet somehow looked forward to. It was a solace that I longed for. The feeling would be lost in translation if I tried to write it down - but it was there. The email did come, but instead brought with it confusion and utter disappointment. The verdict — I would not be in the stands. The realization was akin to getting blindsided in the Dome two years ago against LSU and having to lay there and watch in writhing agony as the “Honey Badger” returned Drew Bulter’s punt for a touchdown. By now we have all heard of the new ticketing policy that went into effect this year, but what most of us do not know is where it came from and why it changed. After much confusion, it seems that this policy was actually one made by the students, for the students. The Athletic Association is tasked with handling all 92,746 tickets for home games and all university tickets for away games, a feat that sounds almost impossible. Not only do they oversee all ticketing operations, but they make us believe it is an effortless process – a tribute to the incredible job the Ticketing Office does on a day to day basis. This year, however, there was one small blunder. Around 140 students that were dual enrolled in graduate school were counted as freshmen in the ticketing system when they should have registered as seniors.

Former long snapper Ty Frix warms up before a game at the Georgia Dome. Frix and many other graduate students did not receive away tickets. Courtesy Ty Frix Within hours the Athletic Association responded to this mistake and corrected it for these students, all of whom received home season tickets. The Athletic Association and Ticketing Office do not seem to make many mistakes, and this year proves they correct their mistakes quickly and painlessly. The new policy? Well that was no mistake. In fact it was not the Athletic Association at all. Policies

such as this are crafted first and then brought before the Athletic Board to be voted on. The most recent policy was handled the same way, albeit three years ago. The student voice on the board along with other members wanted undergraduates, especially freshmen, to enjoy their collegiate experience, one that all too often did not include student tickets to football games. So they set out to change the policy, and this change brought about

the so called “alienation” of graduate students. I am just one of many “old folk” here on campus who have been affected. My story isn’t much different. After the shock wore away I was able to see the method to the so called madness which ensued last Thursday. I have to say, as much as I hate it, I do agree with most of the new policy’s guidelines, except one: I think Double Dawgs need to be back in the hunt for big game away tickets. Who are the Double Dawgs? These esteemed graduate students are those who received their undergraduate degree from UGA and are now pursing their next conquest on the road to academic domination. This group of dedicated pupils has given so much to the University during their tenure that I believe they deserve to keep their hard earned hours. I have spoken to our Athletic Director, Greg McGarity, and he is open to any changes to the policy; however, they must be addressed in the correct manner. Double Dawgs, I challenge you to reach out to your student representative to the Athletic Board, Marshall Mosher, and ask him to draft a change in the policy. If we act now the change can be presented to the board as early as next month’s meeting to be voted on. Ticket or not, this Double Dawg will be in Clemson, S.C. Saturday cheering on our boys as they lay their hearts on the line representing Bulldog Nation. Remember these kids work their entire lives for opportunities such as this; let’s not let a small ticketing policy get in the way of supporting them! #DawgsOnTop — Ty Frix is a graduate student from Calhoun studying Finance.

Ticket policy shocks, angers student body

Blake Seitz

f you’re trying to incite a riot on campus, the best place to start is by telling students they can’t take their rightful spot in Sanford Stadium to cheer on the Bulldogs. And that’s exactly what the Student Government Association did. Or wait — was it the Athletic Association that was responsible? Did President Jere Morehead have a hand in it during his days as provost? Is the new Oasis somehow to blame? Last week, when graduate students and “double Dawgs” were confronted with regretful emails informing them they had not been awarded any tickets at all for the 2013 football season, tempers began to flare and students were given a myriad of groups and offices to take their wrath out on. Many campus institutions have been quick to deny involvement in the policy change that states “credit hours earned during undergraduate years at UGA will NOT factor into the football student ticket process,” but no one has been able to identify where the unpopular change actually originated. And while the origin may seem important to the authors of strongly-worded emails and Facebook statuses, perhaps the focus should shift to taking action. Director of Athletics Greg McGarity has already reassured The Red & Black that students enrolled in both graduate and undergraduate courses have had their undergraduate hours reincorporated into their ticket eligibility evaluation, but that still leaves many graduate students outside the stadium during away games. Clearly the policy was implemented without the interests of students accurately represented. Trey Sinyard, former SGA representative for the Athletic Association Board of Directors, explains “undergraduates are just inherently more involved” — so involved that actual attendance to home games has significantly dropped, and about halfway through the fourth quarter those who could be bothered to join the student section begin to meander out. But if involvement from the graduate community is what they want, then that is exactly what they should get. SGA only allocates one senatorial position out of a possible 54 to the Graduate School. The Law School is also limited to only one seat, which is currently vacant. But it doesn’t have to be, and, quite frankly, it shouldn’t be. When it comes to gameday involvement, the first step is for graduate students to take advantage of the tickets they do have, in hope that whoever is responsible will see the error of his or her ways. — Laura Thompson for the editorial board

times as cute as he was while he was sitting.” Not only is she assuming that being attractive to women is the ultimate reward, she is extremely heteronormative (assuming men are attracted to women and vice versa) in her ironic attempt to persuade men to “evolve.” Let’s ignore that insult to evolution. To add injury to insult, Smith instructs men to not “give in to [our] polite, southern charm” and force us to accept the seat even if we “insist that [we] are fine standing.” This is problematic because it contributes to a culture in which men are “rewarded” for persistence because women apparently can’t make up our own minds until a man makes it up for us. If you are a woman who loves being delicate and submissive, that is your choice, but please do not force those beliefs on others. And men, please don’t attempt to force me to take your seat. You will embarrass yourself. So, to all the Megan Smiths out there: all women are different, and that is a beautiful thing. Don’t speak for all of us. Think about how your words affect the lives of others, and how they work to perpetuate a system of misogyny in which no one truly benefits. And to the men: you are worth more than your Southern manners and consequent “attractiveness.” An executive from the Women’s Studies Student Organization, Samantha Meyer, said it best: “How about we let the guys keep their seats and ask for more of them, like their respect and intelligent conversation?”

wo Sundays ago, the hit TV show “Breaking Bad” returned from mid-season hiatus, and was greeted by 5.9 million viewers. We tuned in for good reason. “Breaking Bad” is a phenomenon, a “modern morality play” according to the University of Delft’s Dr. David Koepsell, who authored a book on the subject. The show has an ever-growing viewership, and each of its episodes are pored over by the gatekeepers of high culture. (Verdict: It’s in.) Less remarked upon, but no less deserving of praise, is another show, the fourth season of which premiered three nights after Walter White returned to Albuquerque: “Duck Dynasty.” That “Duck Dynasty.” The reality television show (or is it a sitcom? — it’s a sitcom) about the Robertson family (or is it a clan? — never mind), whose bearded patriarch built an empire selling duck calls and other hunting paraphernalia. The episodes follow the Robertsons over the hills and through the woods of West Monroe, La. as they become entangled in all manner of hillbilly hijinks. Most episodes end with a scene around a three-generations-long dinner table, where the family reflects on what they learned from the day’s events. And pray. The show is cheesy in the style of “Leave it to Beaver.” It’s unaffected in the style of “The Beverly Hillbillies.” And 11.8 million viewers, a record in its genre, watched it last Wednesday. This, of course, does not make “Duck Dynasty” high culture — almost by definition, it means the opposite. But it would be a mistake to play down the show’s significance: “Duck Dynasty,” singlehandedly, proves that the family values sitcom can survive. It was on the ropes for a while, and still is. You only need to scroll the local listings to see why: the programming offered for consumption to Ordinary America (the middle-class, Denny’s-and-WalMart crowd) is the stuff of cultural wastelands. Shows about families blown to pieces by infidelity, unbridled avarice and petty bickering (Kardashians, J’accuse) and shows with “pawn” in the title. “Duck Dynasty’s” robust performance is evidence that, even as families across the U.S. are falling apart, their aspirations lie elsewhere. The Robertsons, especially Pastor Alan Robertson, might have something to say about that. “Breaking Bad,” for those in the dark, is the story of a decent family man two jobs deep who becomes a meth cook to provide for his wife and children upon learning he has late-stage cancer. Then, through a series of small, snowballing moral decisions, he ruins his family and becomes a monster. A modern morality tale. So too is “Duck Dynasty.” For while “Breaking Bad” shows us what we are capable of becoming, “Duck Dynasty” shows us what we want to be.

Women want more than Southern charm

M

egan Smith’s article “Will the real gentlemen please stand up?” from Friday’s Red & Black is extremely problematic. After complaining about not being able to “sit and enjoy the air conditioning” on the bus, she claims that the boys sitting down are clueless for not offering her and “countless” other females their seats. It is true that as a shorter person (I’m barely over five feet tall), it is more difficult to keep one’s balance on the UGA buses due to the obscene height of the handles; however, she conveys this as a female-only issue because apparently we are “delicate and cute and would like to be treated as such.” First of all, many women do not identify as “delicate,” and this term is degrading and detrimental when applied to all women as a social norm. Sure, there are delicate women, but she alienates the women who are strong, or tall, or simply don’t wish to sit. Deciding that we deserve a seat because we are “cute” perpetuates the concept that a woman’s worth is in her beauty. Short men also have this problem on the buses, and their gentlemanly manners aren’t going to help them reach the handle. However, Smith claims that “we don’t care” about their needs or how their day is going because being treated “more like a princess” is apparently more important. I constantly hear that feminists are man-haters (which is not true), but this view that men should treat women like princesses along with this apathy toward men’s well-being is the epitome of man-hatred. To the supposedly-oblivious guys on the buses — some of us actually care about your injured leg, your asthma, your short stature or your bad day. Please, take a seat, especially if you need it. After adequately insulting everyone, Smith decides to incentivize the Southern-seat-giving ritual by implying that any man who participates will be perceived as “about three

College as an introvert: Freshman takes on Ramsey

L

ike most incoming freshmen this year, I was eager for the fresh start college offered me. I don’t think anyone walks in saying, “Yeah, as long as these next four years are just like high school, I’ll be golden.” So there I was, lugging suitcases full of twin-XL sheets and a secret stash of fuzzy socks up the stairs of a dorm that failed to mention it lacked an elevator. Nonetheless, after releasing a deep sigh of exhaustion, I sat atop the glorious linoleum floor and gawked at what would be home for the next year. Terror instantly filled me. I’m afraid I’m the type of person who doesn’t confront my fears until they smack me in the face. It wasn’t the looming threat of failing a class or the distant echo of a raging frat party that shook me, but rather the prospect of being completely alone, while completely immersed in a population of 30,000. Still, I retained a small glimmer of hope. One person is bound to like me, right? I’ll just have to play it cool — which leads me to my first anecdote. My first night at UGA, I crouched over my desk, plotting ways to meet new people. I highlighted popular hangouts and cross-referenced them with dining commons nearby. Now that I think about it, it probably was not a good idea to bring that map along with me when trying to socialize with new people. Anyway, my first stop was the Ramsey Center — a place full of other people like me, active students just trying to stay in shape. The next morning, sporting

years. Unfortunately, in addition to being shy, I am also incredibly stubborn. I refuse to let things get in my way, even if even the slightest thought of socializing makes my mouth dry and palms sweaty. But then I had an idea (famous last words): I decided to use my story as an icebreaker. When meeting new people, you go through the cycle of “Where are you living? What’s your major? Where are you from?” more quickly than you would think. After it ran its course, I would just blurt out, “I tripped on a treadmill!” Thankfully, the person would typically laugh (At me or with me, I'm not sure) — which was at least slightly reassuring. Although I may not exactly be the epitome of a social butterfly, I have learned that you can do a lot by telling an embarrassing story. Nothing too extreme, just something along the lines of “One time I went to a club meeting and it took me the entire hour to figure out it was the wrong club.” People relate to embarrassing stories because we have all been there. Granted, I’m the only person thus far to regularly trip on exercise equipment, but it’s important to keep in mind that everyone here is at least somewhat anxious about meeting new people, living in a new place and, more generally, adjusting to a new life at UGA. Why not loosen them up with a humorous story?

my UGA “Class of 2017” T-shirt, I hopped on a bus over to Ramsey. I strode in, confident that I would meet someone who shared my interest in exercise, yet a similar terror of any sport with a ball. I hopped on a treadmill and looked around, scanning the room for another person my age. Unfortunately the room was mainly filled with people of the geriatric persuasion — in freakishly good shape, I should probably add. I punched in my workout and started sprinting — on an incline. I should take a moment to clarify. I’m not exactly the graceful, charmed kind of person; I fit more into the stupidly clumsy category. So it is not a surprise to find out that while running on the treadmill, my feet betrayed me and slipped out from underneath. I didn’t just trip; my legs sailed behind me as my arms flailed, trying to grab hold of the safety bars. In the process, I bloodied up my elbow, thus forcing me to go to the manager, explain the mortifying situation and bow my head in shame as she chuckled and handed me a Band-Aid. I left my dignity, along with some dried-up blood, on the belt of that treadmill. Now, as a particularly shy person, I embarrass rather easily, and this incident did enough damage to hinder my confidence in social interaction for a good 10

‘Post-racial’ America not as progressive as it once seemed

I

t's 2013: officially 50 years after the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, I would imagine America as a place where all races would be united and protected by the country we all call our home. Unfortunately, my idealistic image for America has been tainted by the incidents that occurred this past summer, which have worsened race relations and widened the racial divide. Since the Supreme Court questionably declared that America was a “post-racial” society, many Americans believe that to be true, especially since the election of America’s first black President. However, Barack Obama’s election was an exception to a long-standing rule. In fact, interracial relations seem to be getting worse. First, it was unacceptable to some that Paula Deen was audited for using racially insensitive language. Shortly after, the Supreme Court gutted a vital section of the Voting Rights Act that protected minorities’ right to vote. Most recently, George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Incidents like these are not new the black community and me, but the most distressing facet of these were the racist and insensitive comments made by the general population — those who deem this country as “post-racial.” Paula Deen calling a black man “the n-word” was considered justifiable because it occurred three decades ago and because popular rappers say it all the time. Despite the various reactions from both supporters and foes, she used a racially-insensitive term in a malicious way. The vernacular used in hiphop has no ground as an argument because it was Paula Deen’s mind-set and preconceived notions that influenced what she said, not the musical stylings of Lil’ Wayne. In regard to the Voting Rights Act, the Supreme Court’s ruling said that Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act was outdated because racial relations in America have changed; however, the Court failed to recognize that those laws put in place in 1965 are still very much needed today. In 2013, there are still attempts to suppress the minority vote, especially under the Mason-Dixon line. All because of voter fraud? The idea is ludicrous. Moreover, the most upsetting responses were surrounding Martin's death and the subsequent court case. The circumstances were tragic and the verdict broke my heart, but once again, I was most

Whirlwind of emotion surrounds memories of Katrina

T

oday is the eighth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Each year when it rolls around, I think of how it feels like forever ago and just yesterday all at the same time. I can only share my experience in Katrina because I know no other. In the grand scheme of things, I was extremely lucky. Nobody I knew personally died in Katrina, but I know people who knew people. My family’s house in Gulfport, Miss., flooded, but many homes were completely gone. Still, having never experienced destruction of this magnitude before, the event and the effect it had (and still has) on my home — in the sense of house, neighborhood, hometown — is vast. My brother and I complained about having to disrupt our lives to evacuate, and as teenagers, we were pretty melodramatic. Thank goodness my parents made that decision, because I can’t imagine having to watch my house fill up with water. After Katrina hit, I found myself in line to get dinner as a “refugee” in the Alabama town we evacuated to. A local youth group had graciously come to our hotel to provide meals for all of us. I was pretty involved in high school community service, but all that time I had never really thought about how the people on the other side of the table — the community I was “serving” — felt until that moment. Humbling is an understatement. Whether those serving and those being served understand each other or not, I do know one thing: People and communities are the most powerful recuperation mechanism in worst-case scenarios. I am grateful for the help my family received from our community and others. Civilians can do amazing things when they help one another, in case FEMA doesn’t (or can’t) handle it all. We made it back into our house after moving a few times during gutting and repairs, and our family is still intact. I have a lot to be grateful for. If you don’t already have your own “August 29” in your past, take it from me — life is short. Most of the things we worry about don’t matter so much, and the things that do matter — love, friendship, empathy — can’t be taken away by a natural disaster. — Erin Mauffray is a graduate student from Gulfport, Miss. with a degree in Spanish

appalled from what people said about Martin. Media and critics of Martin used bias and stereotypes to show that Trayvon was just another cliche, angry, violent, black man. I also noticed the animalistic views of others, and the lack of importance of black life in America. People did not emphasize that a minor was killed by a grown man, but they saw the color of his skin as a threat and that justified his murder. His death was also made a joke, through the recent “Trayvoning” trend on Instagram that became widely popular among white male teenagers. But all of this should be okay, because we live in a “post-racial” society where racial differences do not exist. Wrong. Clearly, the reactions to these occurrences (and more) prove that we do not need to live in a “postracial” society, but America still needs to change into a “post-racist” society. Racism is still going strong. Instead of the blatant Jim Crow laws decades ago, it has transformed into James Crow, where racism is subtle and occurs behind the scenes in the corporations, politics and even in higher institutions. As an African-American, I notice it here at the collegiate level between peers, and also through my father, who has been involved in the corporate world for over twenty years. Every time I bring up the subject of racism, I get blamed for using the “race card” or for playing the victim, but I shortly realized that blaming the “race card” is often an excuse to avoid the subject of race. It is definitely about time that we confront the subject. The more racism and racial differences are ignored, the less people will understand the negative effects of racial insensitivity and the millennial era of racism. From all sides, we have to speak the truth in order for change to happen in our community. It has to start now. — Tyler Harris is a junior from Douglasville majoring in international affairs

Overeating not always to blame: disorders, disease complicate obesity BY Jeanette Kazmierczak @sciencekaz

Q:

Why do all labs look the same? What are those tables even made of?

This was a difficult question to answer. The design works well and there aren’t many options as far as the composition of tables go. There seem to be two types of tables — phenolic resin and epoxy resin. Phenolic resin tops are made by taking kraft paper — heavy brown paper used in shipping — and soaking it in phenolic resin, a petroleum-based chemical. Then the layers are compressed under high heat to make a solid surface, with the benefit of more control over the thickness of the table. Epoxy resin is also a petroleum-based product, but in this instance the resin is poured into a mold and heated to form one solid piece. Epoxy resin tables tend to be heavier than phenolic resin counterparts, although both are chemical and stain resistant. As far as why all labs look the same, Letitia Saunders, a lab manager in the biological sciences building, said her theory is it’s because of real wood’s durability in the face of clumsy young scientists. “Natural wood is stained, so if something spills you don’t have to worry about paint peeling off,” Saunders said. She also pointed out plywood and particleboard wouldn’t be able to hold up the countertops and natural wood wouldn’t pucker when exposed to water. “We actually had a water leak where the water tore up the drawers, like this part broke down,” she said, “But the sides and everything were still good and they were able to just put a new bottom in there.” Several labs in the biological sciences building were renovated this summer, and the new tables are the same black-top-wood-base as the tables from the ‘60s. Saunders said she thought it might be for the same reason classrooms look the same, no matter the campus. “Somebody probably thought of the design,” she said, “And was like ‘OK.’”

Students use NASA data during new internship BY Lauren McDonald @laurenmcdonald2

no new While manned space missions will come out of NASA, the government entity launched a new internship program at University of Georgia this summer. DEVELOP, an internship brought to UGA through the efforts of a graduate student, allowed 10 interns to write and perform their own research projects that address environmental concerns using NASA satellite imagery data. “They have to be able to work with a deadline and stay on task, because it’s only a 10-week program,” said Marguerite Madden, the director of the Center for Geospatial Research. Two students, Binita KC and Jennifer Bell, created their portfolio by studying the effects that the Okefonokee fires in 2007 had on residents of Jefferson County, Ala., the most expensive wildlife fires ever for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, according to the service’s website. The group found “some evidence” that the fires had caused an increase in hospital visits in the area. “The final result is that we know fires in the Okefenokee Swamp region were impacting the air quality of Birmingham and northern Alabama,” Shepherd said. “And we did see evidence in some of our preliminary analysis that there were increases in the area in hospitalization or emer-

He worked with a group at the Marshall Space Flight Center to study the possibility that factors in the environment cause disease in hemlock plants that had been invaded by the hemlock woolly adelgid, an insect that feeds on and kills large amounts of plants in the Great Smoky Mountains. The project resulted in evidence that the disease is spreading in the area, and introduced a cost-effective way to study these hard to reach areas by using NASA satellite technology. Madden also worked as a mentor

alongside Thomas Jordan, the associate director for the Center for Geospatial Research, on another project that studied agricultural encroachment on the habitat of the Capuchin monkey in Brazil. UGA students Caren Remillard and Andrea Presotto worked with NASA Landsat satellite imagery that allowed them to look at pictures of the monkeys’ habitat and assess the changes in population and in the environment over the past 30 years. The team found there was in fact agricultural encroachment in the area affecting the monkey’s habitats, and the next step of the project would be to look at what can be done to prevent this. DEVELOP interns not protecting monkeys

Interns used a NASA satellite to monitor the state of the wetlands in Georgia. Deepak Mishra, an assistant professor in the Department of Geography and a mentor for the wetland project, worked with interns Shuvankhar Ghosh, Auryn Baruch, Ning Chen and Jeremy Mote. Mishra said the project resulted in a whole new way to monitor the wetlands, one which can be used to understand how to preserve them in the future.

Out-of-state students: HOPE taken for granted BY Chet Martin @chet_martin In addition to providing tuition for Georgia’s students, the Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally Scholarship Program, commonly known as HOPE, seems to be the state’s top source of anxiety. But the anxiety can be hard for out-of-state students to understand. “It’s absolutely frustrating. But that’s what [in-state students] have gotten used to,” said Nikki Hero, a sophomore business major from Charlotte, N.C. “You expect that. I’d never expect that. We don’t even have that kind of opportunity in our own states.” Many states don’t. North Carolina, for instance, does not offer a large, merit-based scholarship fund akin to HOPE. But that doesn’t make the anxiety any less real for students such as Alyson Fleet, a senior psychology major from Marietta. “While it’s hard to complain about free tuition, it’s still frustrating that it’s less free than it used to be,” Fleet said. The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia raised tuition and fees at UGA five percent for the fall 2014 semester, equal to the hike they made in 2012 for this fall semester. In the last 10 years, the cost of tuition and fees has risen from $4,078 in the 2003 to 2004 school year to $10,262 in the 2013 to 2014 school year. In addition to the $1,117 in mandatory student fees, students at UGA with the HOPE Scholarship will pay an additional $737.10 in tuition fees not covered by HOPE because of changes made in 2011. Those changes, passed by the Georgia General Assembly and signed by Gov. Nathan Deal, established a tiered system of awards. The newly-established Zell Miller Scholarship, which requires a 3.7 high school GPA and a 3.3 college GPA, covers all tuition — though it does not cover student fees.

Out-of-state students have a difficult time understanding the stress falling HOPE coverage causes in Georgia students. Randy schafer/Staff high school GPA and 3.0 college GPA. “It’s really unfortunate that [costs] keep increasing. However, compared to many of my friends paying out-of-state tuitions, I still think [HOPE-assisted] tuition is reasonable,” said Rett Evans, a junior business major from Atlanta. About 17 percent of UGA students are from out of state, according to the the 2012 UGA Fact Book. While all states bordering Georgia, with the exception of Alabama, have a state lottery used to fund education, only Florida and Tennessee have a scholarship program comparable to Georgia’s. She drew a comparison between HOPE and Florida Bright Futures, a lottery-funded program with a tiered system of awards similar to HOPE and the Zell Millar Scholarship. While the basic HOPE Scholarship covers about 64 percent of UGA’s $10,262 in-state tuition at a rate of $218.46 per credit hour, Florida Bright Futures covers $103 per credit hour. That is approximately 50 percent of the University of Florida’s in-state cost of tuition and fees of $6,270. John Michael Hailey, a recently graduated economics student from Memphis, Tenn.,

explained how Tennessee’s HOPE Scholarship, which began in 2004, was modeled after Georgia’s HOPE. Tennessee requires a 3.0 high school GPA from in-state students, as Georgia did until 2011. Tennessee’s HOPE scholarship awards about 54 percent of the University of Tennessee’s $11,194 in-state tuition and fees. The state does not have a lottery-funded scholarship that covers all tuition akin to Georgia’s Zell Miller Scholarship. Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program granted awards to 1,060,618 students at a cost of $2.29 billion from 2004 to 2009, while Tennessee’s HOPE program assisted 236,006 students with $836,592,840 in the same time period. During that same five-year span, 747,813 students received $1,731,181,046 from Florida Bright Futures. “It’s incredibly easy for Georgia students to get aid and I feel that it’s taken for granted by a lot of people,” Bambenek said. The HOPE Scholarship was established in 1993 by Gov. Zell Miller. In his 2013 State of the State address, Deal said HOPE “remains one of the most generous state run scholarship programs in the nation. It is also keeping our best and brightest students in Georgia.”

University of Georgia education remains affordable for students without invoking delayed tuition payment BY Taylor West @TaylorWest08 At least two states are considering a delayed tuition plan to lower tuition costs, but Georgia is taking other measures. Delayed tuition prorams allow students to complete a bachelor’s degree at a public institution without paying tuition costs up front. After gradation, students would pay a fixed percentage of their annual income yearly until the debt was paid off. The Oregon state legislature passed a proposal in July called “Pay It Forward, Pay It Back” and two Ohio lawmakers are pushing for a similar plan, according to a Huffington Post article. Despite the push in other states, John Millsaps, the associate vice chancellor of media and publications with the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, said no such plan is being considered in Georgia due to legal barriers barring that kind of program. Even without the delayed tuition program, Millsaps said Georgia has traditionally ranked low in its tuition rates. The most recent tuition increase, 2.5 percent, was the lowest in a decade. He said the state of Georgia has a lot of state support for student education that helps keep tuition lower than in other parts of the country. “Traditionally, for many years the state provided — for in- state tuition — ... 75 percent of the cost of instruction and the student paid 25 percent,” he said. “In recent years, as a result of the recession and lower state revenues that has shifted somewhat.” He said the state now pays about 50 percent and the rest is covered through student’s tuition and cost saving measures put in place on campuses by the USG. Tom Jackson, the vice president for public affairs at the University of Georgia, said UGA was recently named the No. 2 best value institution in Washington Monthly’s annual Bang-for-the-Buck ranking. “We’ve seen any number of times various publi-

cations have listed us on a best value listing, so generally when we hear the stories about how high tuition has gotten at a lot of institutions, the University of Georgia is still a relatively strong value,” he said. Jackson said UGA continuously takes steps to keep its relatively low tuition. He cited a space utilization study as one recently taken measure. “The recent space utilization study is an example where we’re looking at the most efficient use of square footage for classes,” he said. Jackson said other efforts by UGA include energy saving measures to contribute to the bottom line. In addition to efforts to cut costs specifically at UGA, the University System of Georgia tries to ensure affordability for students at all public Georgia institutions — without a delayed tuition plan. Millsaps said some of the efforts to make college more affordable in Georgia include a new integrated program review to look at the relation that any proposed program would have on academics, the facility and budget, an emphasis on online learning and space utilization studies, such as the one done at UGA. He also said the USG completed a consolidation effort in which eight institutions were merged into four new institutions and is making an effort to lower administrative expenses. While not regulated through the USG, Jackson said the HOPE scholarship has also helped ease Georgia tuition costs. The number of Pell Grants awarded has increased steadily in recent years from 3,941 awards totaling in $12,798,227 in the 2008 to 2009 fiscal year to 7,081 awards totaling $27,339,910 for the 2011 to 2012 fiscal year, according to the UGA Fact Books. The 2012 to 2013 Fact Book report is not available at this time. Even with HOPE and USG’s efforts to cut costs, Kierston Willis, a junior magazine journalism and music business major from Stone Mountain said that she believes college costs too much. She said she thinks delayed tuition might help some students get through college — even if it’s not the best program for her.

of the Multicultural Greek Life Council, as well as four fraternities and four sororities that are part of UGA’s National Pan-Hellenic Council. National PanHellenic Council sororities at UGA are historically African-American organizations. Not all organizations that consider themselves Greek are a part of the four councils. For example, Alpha Kappa Psi is a co-ed professional business fraternity that has a house located on the corner of Baxter Street and Broad Street. But this fraternity is not officially part of the Greek Life Office at all. It belongs to none of the existing fraternity councils, so is technically considered by UGA to be a student run organization. “While we do pride ourselves on having a professional and friendly atmosphere I’d have say we still have just as much fun, if not more, than any other frat or sorority," said AKPsi President Kyle Hickox.

The large fraternities and sororities housed in the mansionlike houses on Milledge are not the only Greek organizations on campus. Claudia Shamp, director of the Greek Life Office, said a Greek organization is any student organization recognized by her office. “In Greek life here at UGA we have four separate councils,” explained Shamp. “There’s the Interfraternity Council, or IFC, which is composed of 26 fraternities and the Pan-Hellenic Council composed of 17 different sororities.” The four different councils are IFC, National Pan-Hellenic Council, Pan-Hellenic Council and the Multicultural Greek Council. The IFC and the Pan-Hellenic hold most of the major Greek houses on campus. But UGA also boasts six sororities and fraternities that are part

DOG DAYS OF SUMMER

Freshman center-back Summer Burnett moved 4,500 miles to be a Bulldog

Freshman defender Summer Burnett kicks a ball during practice on Wednesday. Burnett moved over 4,500 miles from Makakilo, Hawaii to Athens to play for the the Georgia Bulldogs soccer team. Burnett has started at center-back for the Bulldogs in both of its games so far this season. randy schafer/Staff BY TYLER SERRITT @TSerrittII There are more than 4,500 miles between Athens, Georgia and Hawaii.  That is how far freshman Summer Burnett chose to travel to play soccer for the Bulldogs. “I chose the University of Georgia because I really enjoyed my visit and it fit me. I love the atmosphere and the people and I actually have family here so it works out. I’ve always wanted to play for a big school and a Division 1 team and that I can be seen,” Burnett said. “I was always fine with being far away from home. Georgia wasn’t an issue, I just want to be somewhere that I loved and I knew I would be happy.” What has made the transition even easier for Summer is the constant support of her Bulldog teammates.  “The team is great. They make it easy to be here. They ask me everyday if I am homesick. It’s not that I don’t miss home, of course I do. I just love the game,” said Burnett Burnett is a defender who has made two starts already potent UGA backline. Her  best contribu-

tions to the team, however, may be off of the ball.  “I think being a freshman in the back, it’s harder to be a leader with three seniors. But I try to be positive in the back and I try to keep us moving forward. Even if we are losing, you have to have that mental stability to come back, I think I bring that to the team. I try to work my hardest and  try to have that influence on others,” said Burnett.  “She came in fit, works hard and she shows a lot of leadership skills, even as a newcomer,” head coach Steve Holeman said. “She has great qualities and we are really excited about her.” Burnett, along with many of the BURNETT other UGA freshmen, had a very positive preseason. All of her hard work and diligence earned her spot on the team’s starting 11 in the UGA’s regular season opener against the University of Texas, which was a big moment for her.  “She’s a very quick learner. She came in and grabbed the starting role for a variety of reasons,” Holeman said. “We have a system and how we like to

play, and her understanding was phenomenal.” “Its something that I didn’t even imagine happening. I’m really happy that it has,” Burnett said. “Every time hearing your name running on the field with the starting eleven, it is the best.”  Before moving to the Athens, Burnett shone in her hometown of Makakilo, Hawaii. Summer was a four year varsity member of Kamehameha High School. She started three years and was a key defensive piece that helped her high school team capture a Division One State Title in 2012. Burnett was a decorated player individually and was named to the Interscholastic League of Honolulu Girls Second Team in her first year as a starter. In 2012, she was earned a spot on the Hawaii High School Athletic Association Girls Soccer First Team All State 2012. She finished her high school career strong by receiving Interscholastic League of Honolulu Girls Soccer First Team honors in 2013.  Burnett also enjoyed success on the club level. She played with the Leahi Stingrays from 2005-2007 and the Leahi Premier 95 from 2007-2013. With the help of Burnett, the Leahi club enjoyed successes in a variety of tournaments including Hawaii State Championships and the Surf Cup. 

After a decade in dormancy, the UGA/Clemson rivalry roars back BY ALEC SHIRKEY @AShirkey A mere 70 miles of highway separate Sanford Stadium and Death Valley, and they will be roads welltraveled come Saturday. That’s when No. 5 Georgia and No. 8 Clemson square off in a nonconference matchup many have deemed the best college football game of opening weekend. When both schools take the field at Memorial Stadium, it will mark the first time in a decade that the two teams meet and just the fifth time since 1990. But it wasn’t always that way. The first-ever clash between the Bulldogs and Tigers was also a season-opener, though this one occurred in 1897 (Georgia won 24-0). That win would set the tone for much of the series as the men in red and black have since posted a 41-17-4 overall series record, including seven of the past 10 pairings. However, in focusing on the whole picture, one misses out on a number of superbly competitive contests, specifically during the stretch from 1973 to 1987. “My recollection was in the ‘80s back when Georgia and Clemson played on a somewhat regular basis. And this game was always one of the best games of the year. You always had two teams that were so close in proximity. Both teams were always competitive,” said Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity, a 1976 University graduate who went on to coach the women’s tennis team from 1977 to 1982. “I just think it’s got all the elements of a classic college football game.” Perhaps most notable during that period were the games of 1980 and 1981, during which the winner of each would go on to win a national championship. Georgia’s 20-16 victory in 1980 would be highlighted by the heroic efforts of Scott Woerner — more affectionately known as “Woerner the Returner” — who returned a punt and an interception for a touchdown in the contest. The plays would help bail out the Bulldogs offense, which had failed

The two schools have not played in the decade since. file/Staff to record a first down in the game’s first half, and spark the team’s perfect season. One year later, Clemson returned with a vengeance, shutting down star running back Herschel Walker and the Georgia offense in a decisive 13-3 win. “I was there when Georgia came to town in ‘81 with Herschel Walker. The claim to fame on that game [was]

Herschel Walker never saw the end zone in Death Valley,” said Don Mabry, a 1984 Clemson graduate. “There are a lot of similarities in the schools and the fact that they’re so close adds to the rivalry, as well as the fact that it’s not played every year. So I think it’s good to go back every once in a while and see this matchup.” And yet for the current crop of

college football fans, something of this rivalry has been lost with time. It no longer holds the same gravitas as Georgia-Florida or Georgia-Auburn, and in many ways is simply seen as a game between two talented teams that just so happen to lie on opposite sides of Lake Hartwell.

DOGS OFF THE LEASH

MURRAY: ‘I didn’t come back this year for awards and records’

Jarvis Jones is OK following injury scare

➤ From Page 1

BY CODY PACE @CodyPace Former Georgia outside linebacker and Pittsburgh Steelers’ first-round pick Jarvis Jones is OK after being carted off the field in the fourth quarter of the Steelers’ 26-20 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The injury, which occurred on an interception that was later negated, was originally thought to be a bruised sternum or chest but was actually just an instance where Jones had the wind knocked out of him. “I got tackled from behind, fell on the ball, dude fell on me, knocked the air out of me,” Jones told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Jones left Heinz Field on a stretcher and was taken to the hospital as a safeguard by team doctors to ensure no internal damage had occurred. Jones will be held out of the teams’ final preseason game as a precaution. During the three preseason games he played in, Jones racked up seven tackles, four of which were unassisted, and a forced fumble. Many expect Jones to make a name for himself as the replacement to former Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison. Brown, Ogletree, others perform in preseason week three Marlon Brown, who signed an undrafted freeagent contact this offseason with the Baltimore Ravens, had a stellar week three against the Carolina Panthers. Brown, who is coming off of an ACL tear against from a Nov. 3 game against Mississippi last year that ended his senior season, had four catches for 59 yards, including a 24-yard touchdown catch. For Brown, that makes a total of six catches and 90 yards this preseason. Brown leads all Ravens’ receivers in catches and is second only to Torrey Smith in yards so far this preseason. Another rookie, first-round pick Alec Ogletree, had a strong showing for the St. Louis Rams at middle linebacker Saturday in a 27-26 loss to the Denver Broncos. Ogletree recovered a fumble for a touchdown, had an interception and recorded six tackles, including two tackles for loss. Several other former Georgia football players performed well in the third week of the preseason. Chiefs’ outside linebacker Justin Houston recorded two tackles, including a sack. Houston, a third-year player, has played in all 32 regular season games since being drafted in 2011 and is the projected starter. Atlanta Falcons’ middle linebacker Akeem Dent recorded six tackles in a 27-16 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Saturday. Steelers’ punter Drew Butler punted for just shy of 200 yards in four attempts against the Chiefs,

Less than a week after being cut by the Seattle Seahawks, Jets’ receiver Mohammad Massaquoi had two catches for 36 yards in a 24-21 win over the New York Giants A pair of Chicago Bears made impact plays Friday night. Cornerback Tim Jennings recorded an interception as well as a pass deflection, while defensive end Cornelius Washington recorded the first sack of his professional career. In the Bengals’ 24-18 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, wide receiver A.J. Green had three catches for 42 yards Defensive tackle Geno Atkins also had a good showing with three tackles, including one tackle for loss Broncos’ running back Knowshon Moreno made the most of his limited playing time, earning 33 yards on just five carries and having three receptions out of the backfield for 42 yards. Two former Bulldogs qualify for PGA TOUR At the conclusion of the Cox Classic, a part of the Web.com Tour Finals, 25 players were awarded their PGA TOUR cards, including former Bulldogs Kevin Kisner and Brendon Todd. Cards were awarded to any player that placed in the top 25 of the Web.com Tour money list. Kisner, a Georgia golfer from 2002-2006, placed 13th overall on the money list. Kisner won the Chile Classic. Kisner was on the PGA TOUR in 2011 and 2012, where he never placed higher than 167th on the money list. Todd, with Georgia from 2003-2007, placed 20th on the list. Winner of the Stadion Classic, Todd, played at the University of Georgia golf course in April, has had some experience on the PGA TOUR, including conditional status on the PGA TOUR this year. In his PGA career, Todd has posted five top 25 finishes.

The leader of a team, especially being a quarterback, faces constant scrutiny by fans and media, but probably worse than that, is the praise that comes with the job when things are going smoothly. These accolades can go to a player’s head — he can become too comfortable and he can become careless. Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said he made sure that wasn’t the case last week when he sat down with his three-year starter. “We all are human, we all listen to things, and you can’t help it sometimes but that’s what I talked to him about last week,” Bobo said. “Worry about what you can control and that’s play-in and play-out, doing your job, not to put too much pressure on yourself. That’s what he has to do all year. We’ve had that discussion." Last week, Murray received even more accolades as the coaches’ preseason All-SEC Football team was announced.  The Tampa native was selected to the first team over 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, and last year’s national championship quarterback A.J. McCarron. Even after trumping two of the best quarterbacks in college football, Murray was very humble over the honor. “Definitely a huge honor to be voted there by the coaches,” Murray said. “I didn’t come back this year for rewards or records. I want to win championships, and that’s all

that’s really on my mind now.” Based on not only his experience, but also his surrounding cast, Murray may have a chance of getting a crack at his goal this season. Murray said this year’s offense was “the most dynamic our offense has ever been,” and rightly so. While there may be pressure on Georgia’s offense to produce even more than it did last season, Georgia head coach Mark Richt isn’t seeing any of it from Murray. “I think as far as he is concerned, he wants to win and I don’t see it as pressure,” he said. “I think he is comfortable with his teammates, he has faith in them, he has a great comfort level with our system, and he has faith in our coaches. I think he is in a good place.” With all this talk about winning a championship, there is a lot riding on Murray’s last hoorah. If he doesn’t win that SEC or national championship there is no do-over. It’s one and done. Lynch has no doubts that Murray is up for the challenge this year. “He’s a competitor. As a competitor, no matter what the competition is you want to win, it could be checkers or a national championship, it doesn’t matter,” Lynch said. “I think that’s the mindset he has and he prepares that way, and I think that’s why we’ve had so much success in recent years and why he’s had individual success. Hopefully that will continue this year. He has unfinished business and he plans on finishing it.”

The Red and Black

Edges: UGA and Clemson fairly even BY CY BROWN @CEPBrown Offense Two of the nation’s most dynamic offenses will be on display Saturday. On paper, not much separates them. Clemson was No. 8 last season in total offense, while Georgia was No. 11. Clemson scored 41 points per game, while Georgia scored 37.8. Both teams have potential Heisman contenders lining up under center in Tajh Boyd and Aaron Murray. Each team’s receiving units bring back productive players. Georgia has more proven commodities at receiver, but Clemson has a bona fide superstar in Sammy Watkins. The big difference comes in the backfield. The combination of Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall is light-years more potent than Clemson’s Roderick McDowell and whoever else the Tigers decide to line up in the backfield. Although both teams will put up a lot of points and yards, UGA should have the superior ground game. Edge: Georgia Defense Each teams’ defense is considered a question mark this early in the season. Georgia’s defense is young, but believed to be more talented than Clemson’s. While Clemson’s defense has more experience,  it doesn’t have as much sheer talent as Georgia. It wouldn’t be farfetched to assume each defense will allow more than 30 points. The environment could swing the pendulum in Clemson’s favor. Death Valley will be rocking when Georgia has the ball, which could make it difficult for Georgia’s

Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney watches his team nervously. Swinney said his team is in for a ‘huge challenge’ against Georgia. Courtesy Richard Shiro Tailback Todd Gurley (3) looks for running room. Gurley could give Georgia an advantage Saturday. players to communicate. Since the two defenses are so evenly matched, the “12th man” could be a huge factor. Edge: Clemson Special teams Mark Richt still hasn’t given any indication whether or not placekicker Marshall Morgan will play. Even if he does play, Morgan was inconsistent at best on extra points last season, much to the chagrin to Georgia fans. Clemson’s Chandler Catanzaro’s claim to fame is hitting a 37-yard, game-winning field goal as time expired in last season’ Chik-fil-a Bowl against LSU. Clemson’s consistency at kicker at the dynamism of return man Sammy Watkins points to it having the advantage in the special teams game. Edge: Clemson

Coaching In the head coaching department, Georgia holds a distinct advantage. Mark Richt is heading into his thirteenth season as head of Georgia’s program. During that time he has two SEC Championships and six Eastern Division Titles. Dabo Swinney is heading into his sixth season and has one ACC Championship. Swinney also never served as a coordinator. Swinney has been able to attract some of the countries best coordinators, however. Clemson has paid top dollar for offensive coordinator Chad Morris and defensive coordinator Brent Venabales. However successful these hires have been – and they’ve been extremely successful, at least in Morris’s case – they cannot make up for the experience gap between Richt and Swinney. Edge: Georgia

Swinney ready for Georgia challenge BY CY BROWN @CEPBrown Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney prepared his No. 8 Clemson Tigers all offseason for Saturday’s opening game against No. 5 Georgia, so he knows the challenge that lies ahead. “Obviously, we have a huge challenge playing a very talented team in Georgia, a very well coached team,” Swinney said in a teleconference Wednesday. “Offensively, it could be as good an offense as we’ve seen the last couple of years. Defensively, [it’s] a very talented group of players they’re going to put on the field.” The matchup is the marquee game of college football’s opening weekend, considering the historic rivals haven’t played each other in a decade. “Draw in the fact that it’s Clemson/Georgia and all that potentially comes with that, the history and the fact that they’re a top-five team in the country and a lot of people are picking them to win the national championship,” Swinney said. “It should make for a great night for this opening game.” An early season showdown between two top-10 teams is enough to get the nation’s attention, but the history between the two schools is why America will be focused on Death Valley this weekend. “There’s just a lot of history and tradition between these two schools,” Swinney said. “That in itself creates a lot of excitement. Especially when we used to play every year and we haven’t played in a long time now. There’s excitement there.” Many people see the game as an opportunity for Clemson to prove itself as a national power by defeating another SEC foe. But Swinney is more focused that one of the best teams in the country is coming to town, regardless of its conference. “Regardless of what conference they’re from, you’ve got the No. 5 team coming to your stadium. That’s all that really matters … Both teams are preseason top-10 type teams. There’s a lot on the line,” Swinney said. Tajh Boyd poised for another big season Athens has focused on its own Heisman hopeful, Aaron Murray, this offseason, but Clemson also has a signal-caller who has a chance to strike the pose come December. Senior quarterback Tajh Boyd is one of the nation’s best passers, having thrown for more than 3,800 yards each of the last two seasons. “I’m really glad we got Tajh Boyd back for another year,” Swinney said. “He’s a very experienced player. He’s been in a lot of big games. He’s going to have to draw on that experience and play very well for us to have a

chance against a team like this. I definitely think he’s more than prepared and mentally ready to accept the challenge.” Even though Boyd has produced gaudy numbers, Swinney said his focus is clearly on his performance. “Tajh has been a good player for a long time,” Swinney said. “He has a good balance in his life. He’s got a good understanding of, I think Babe Ruth or Yogi Berra said, ‘Yesterday’s home runs don’t win today’s games.’ I think that he’s got a good understanding of that.” While Swinney is glad people are recognizing Boyd’s ability, he doesn’t believe the attention will affect Boyd’s performance. “It’s exciting that people recognize his past performance and his abilities and his potential. I think he has a very good understanding of it’s based on what you do now. It’s based on performance,” Swinney said. “You’ve got to pay the price. You’ve got to prepare your tail off and you’ve got to perform on game day. He’s got a good balance when it comes to all that stuff. He’s one of this guys who’s been in the limelight a long time, so I don’t think the lights are too bright for him.” Same story, different secondary A lot of talk this offseason has been focused on the comparability of Clemson and Georgia’s offenses, both of which were top 15 in the country in yards produced. But Clemson’s secondary is also mirroring Georgia’s. The Tigers, like the Bulldogs, lack experience in the defensive secondary and rely on freshmen to contribute week one. “We’ve got five guys who have played a lot of football for us, that I feel good about, but that’s not a lot of guys,” Swinney said. “The rest of them, all of our depth is freshmen. It’s a big challenge for those guys, early in the season like this.” Although Swinney said the few veterans in the secondary have improved, he still expects freshmen to contribute. “Our veteran guys have stood out,” Swinney said. “They’ve improved. They’ve accepted the challenge from all the young bucks that we brought in here. We’ve got eight new freshmen. But, it’s been very competitive. Athletically, we’re much better than we were this time last year. Depth wise, we’re much better. Experience wise, we’re very, very inexperienced.” Swinney likes his group of defensive backs, but understands it will be a process to get them where he thinks they should be. “Athletically and talent wise, I like our group, but we’re a long way away from being a dominant secondary like I think we will be as time moves on,” he said.

BEHIND ENEMY BYLINES

Clemson’s Death Valley to provide a hostile atmosphere for Georgia

Every week this season, The Red & Black will be reaching out to the sports editor of each opponent’s school newspaper to trade questions about the weekend’s game. This week we traded questions with Aaron Ransdell, sports editor of Clemson’s student newspaper The Tiger.

Cy Brown: What will the atmosphere be like in Death Valley compared to a typical Clemson game? Aaron Ransdell: I expect the atmosphere to be one of the loudest, most hostile environments that I’ve experienced at Clemson. A top 10 match up against an old rival, coupled with “gameday” means that the Valley will be rocking. In addition, this is the first game of the season, so you have to expect that Clemson fans will be jacked up. 

CB: Both teams’ strength lies on offense, while both defenses remain unproven. How confident are people in Clemson’s ability to stop Georgia’s offense and vice versa? AR: I think most Clemson fans’ expectations are that both teams will score points. However, the Tigers have been continually improving on defense, and despite a few banged up secondary players, most fans feel extremely confident in stopping the run. The only questions that most have is how the secondary will hold up against

Aaron Murray, who is one of the best quarterbacks in the nation.  Offensively, the consensus is that Clemson will put up at least 28 points, if not more. The Tigers have simply too many weapons in the receiving game, which makes it hard for any team to match up and pinpoint in on a single receiver. 

CB: Who is one generally unknown Clemson player who is poised to have a big game on Aug. 31? AR: Nearly every college football fan knows about Tajh Boyd and Sammy Watkins. The one player who I expect to make a splash this game is running back Roderick McDowell. He’s shown in limited playing time that he can handle a good amount of carries, and I think that Clemson will use the running game early and often to open up the passing game.  Defensively, I think defensive end Vic Beasley is going to make an impact. He’s a little undersized, but he makes up for it with his speed. He earned his starting spot after making a name for himself on passing downs last year, and I think with the size that he’s put on this off-season, he’ll complement Corey Crawford on the other side nicely. 

AR: With the Bulldog team being so highly ranked, what is the feeling around campus as to if they can live up to expectations or not? CB: Expectations are high, as always. However, there is some cautious optimism this season. The offense is arguably the best in school history, but the defense is young and unproven. Add the fact [is] that Georgia plays Clemson,

South Carolina and LSU in its first four games and people have no idea what’s going to happen. Any team would struggle with that slate of games. Since those games are so tough, expectations have been tempered. 

AR: Georgia plays Clemson, South Carolina, and LSU in the first four weeks of the season. Which of these games do you think will make or break Georgia’s season? CB: A loss to South Carolina would be devastating. Losses to USC in the last two seasons have left a bad taste in Georgia fans’ mouths. USC, along with Florida, is Georgia’s biggest title competitor in the East. Losing to Clemson would hurt, but it wouldn't damage Georgia's SEC record. LSU is in the SEC West, so a loss to them doesn't affect Georgia as much as a loss to USC. A loss to the Gamecocks would complete deflate the fan base and destroy any belief it has this season.

AR: What UGA players beside the stars should Clemson fans be worried about? We know most of the big names on the team, but who is going to surprise Clemson on the 31st? CB: Todd Gurley got all the hype last season, but Keith Marshall was arguably just as effective. He rushed for 759 yards with 6.5 yards per carry and eight touchdowns. He’s a speedster who brings a change of pace to Gurley’s bruising style. Gurley will be featured more heavily than

Marshall, but Marshall will see plenty of time. He’s a big play threat who can score anytime. The more Marshall plays, the more Gurley is rested. The more Gurley is rested, the more effective he'll be. “Gurshall” is most potent when neither back gets too many carries.

Inexperienced safeties to play against Clemson

rivalry: After a decade, UGA and Clemson meet again

BY CONNOR SMOLENSKY @ConnorSmo Between sophomore Josh Harvey-Clemons’ onegame suspension for a marijuana-related violation and a heap of injuries amongst the Bulldogs’ defensive backs, there was much discussion of whom would be lining up in the secondary against Clemson on Saturday. The good news is that the Bulldogs will have at least four healthy defensive backs to fill the spots. “The guys that I think are going to end up playing safety for us is Connor [Norman] and it looks like Tray [Matthews] is going to make it if he has no more set backs, [Quincy] Mauger, Shaquille Fluker has been practicing again,” Georgia head coach Mark Richt said. “I think those guys will be available and the way we set them up we’ll have to figure out when they snap it.” The bad news — only one of those four names has ever played a snap of Southeastern Conference football. At the beginning of summer camp, it was thought that junior Corey Moore would occupy the starting strong safety spot, but it’s looking like that will not be the case come Clemson. Richt said Tuesday that he doesn’t think Moore will be ready to go against Clemson due to a nagging right ankle sprain that has kept him out for most of camp. Next in line is Matthews, who hadn’t fully practiced with the team in over two weeks, before Monday. Like Moore, Matthews had been banged up for the majority of camp, but was seen without the green no-contact jersey at the beginning of the week. Matthews impressed coaches throughout his early enrollment period last spring, but now it’s not a question of if he will play. The question is, will he be ready to play after missing so much time?

➤ From Page 9 “Our generation — I’ve never really seen Georgia play Clemson,” said Harrison Martin, a UGA senior from Atlanta. “I mean, when I was little we played them those two years. I’m excited about Gameday being there and everything, but rivalry-wise it doesn’t really mean much to me.” The same could be said of the players. Most of them weren’t even alive to see the last time Clemson defeated Georgia in 1990. The Tigers won that game 34-3.   “It’s going to be a fun environment,” senior quarterback Aaron Murray said. “Big time game. College Gameday is going to be there. So we’re excited. It brought a lot of excitement this offseason, pushed us to work extra hard in conditioning.” That’s not to say, however, that MURRAY Georgia has not done its part to try and convey what the game used to mean. Perhaps this effort rekindles some of those old flames that used to burn so intensely between the programs. “We’ll talk about it. There’s some history obviously during the time I’ve been at Georgia when we played Clemson, and well beyond that,” head coach Mark Richt said. “I always like to teach our guys history of Georgia football, and rivalry games are part of that.” The weight and potential early-season momentum that Saturday’s matchup could produce is certainly not lost on either Georgia or Clemson. Both teams will revel in the spotlight and with two explosive offenses and inexperienced defenses this game could turn into a Death Valley shootout. But as the season is renewed, so also will be a rivalry that spans over a century, with titles won and lost in between. And to some, if not only to the game itself, that means a lot.

Safety Connor Norman (11) goes in for a tackle last season against Buffalo. Norman, a former walk-on, is the only safety available against Clemson who played FBS football. file/Staff “I’m probably more curious than concerned [about our defense],” Richt said. “It’s going to be interesting to see how quickly these guys can get their feet under them and start playing with some confidence.” Mauger, a freshman, and Fluker, a junior college transfer, will be the back-ups against Clemson, but both have been dinged up during camp and their understanding of Georgia’s scheme is still up in the air. That’s where Norman comes into play. Norman, a former walkon, has been with the team for three years, and is the only one of the available safeties that has seen any previous playing time. The Duluth native appeared in 14 games last season, making two starts and had 18 tackles. But prior to Monday, Norman wasn’t sure what his role would be amongst the group of young, talented players. “I honestly didn’t even know of that [the starting

role] until my brother texted me yesterday,” Norman said. “It’s exciting. I’m excited for the opportunity that we have to play Clemson and it’s going to be fun.” Against Clemson, Norman will not only have to cover his own responsibilities, but will also have to keep tabs on the younger guys and make sure everyone is on the same page. It’s easy to get rattled as an inexperienced player in a hostile environment, and that is something that Richt hopes Norman will make an effort to prevent. “Connor really understands the system well, he understands what’s going on in the back end, the checks that we make versus certain looks, and he has the way to communicate that with the guys that don’t know it as well and that’s huge,” he said. “Christian Robinson was that kind of guy for us at linebacker during his career, he had a lot of value to our defense just from a knowledge stand point. That’s where Connor is at

now.” Norman shares the No. 11 jersey with quarterback Aaron Murray and the more prominent No. 11 has faith in Norman because of his immense knowledge of the playbook. “I know Connor is going to do a great job, he knows the playbook better than anyone else on the defense,” Murray said. “He has really stepped up not only as a playmaker, but also as a leader of the defense as far as getting us to go and putting guys in the right position.” During his career, Norman has never been much of a leader on the defense, but he is up to the task. His strategy is about as simple as it gets — keep calm. “Yeah you just want to calm them down and keep them comfortable out there and you play better when you’re comfortable,” Norman said. “The big thing is you know is keeping everyone on the same page when you’re out there.”

After a season marred by the departure of one of the team’s best players and a late, season-ending injury, Georgia men’s tennis sets its eyes on a new season. Three days before the national championships last May, the Bulldogs learned they would finish the season without senior KU Singh, who left the team unexpectedly. Though in shock at the time, members of the tennis team have moved on and are unaffected by the turmoil that happened in May. “No, it definitely won’t linger,” junior Nathan Pasha said. “It definitely hasn’t lasted to this point. I feel like our results last year, that we got that far, speak to that and how we were able to get past it.” Georgia was able to brush off any effects that Singh’s sudden departure may have had and advance deep into the playoffs. The entire men’s team will consist entirely of returnees from last year, but perhaps the most intriguing player this season is redshirt freshman Nick Wood. Feb. 21, Wood suffered an ankle injury which kept him out for the remainder of the season. Singles competition this fall will feature Wood’s return, and it seems that the team expects big things from Wood. “As far as highlighting a player, one player I would watch out for is Nick Wood,” Pasha said. “He got hurt last year and wasn’t able to finish. I anticipate him playing [at a] high [level], and winning a lot of matches. I don’t

Junior Nathan Pasha said the tennis team has moved past the unexpected departure of KU Singh last spring. david c bristow/Staff think as many Georgia tennis fans are familiar with him just because of his lack of playing last year, but he’s one guy who will really contribute.” “It will be good to see Nick [Wood] come back from injury and just see how he does,” Sophomore Ben Wagland said. “It’s good to have him back.” “It’ll be interesting to see how he comes back from that injury,” senior Garrett Brasseaux said. “I have full faith in him. I’m sure he’ll do very well. I don’t see him missing anything stride-wise coming back.” Pasha said that he has been working hard to be in good shape for singles. “You’re lifting hard, training hard, running hard — all that stuff,” Pasha said. “As far as preparing, that’s what I’ve been doing. I’ve just been doing a lot of physical work and getting stronger, and working on those specific things to make the best of my game.” “There’s no better prep for the spring than the fall,” Brasseaux said. “It gives us all a chance to work on our individual things to improve and get ready

to make the team better. We’ve all been trying to get stronger and work really hard on our fitness the last couple of weeks. I think we’re all in great shape right now.” Wagland said his main goal for the fall is qualifying early for the Intercollegiate Tennis Association National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships in November. “I’ve set a few goals for myself, but mainly to qualify for the National Indoor Championships in New York by at least making the quarter-finals at the All-American Championships in Tulsa,” Wagland said. “I want to try and qualify early.” The team is looking for a strong start to the season with singles competitions this fall, which begins Sept. 13 with the Southern Intercollegiate Championships in Athens. “We’re all playing well,” Brasseaux said. “Everything’s looking up and super-positive. Everybody’s been there, done that, and has a lot of experience. We’re all just gaining on what we learned last year and continuing this year.”

Demolition of the church began Tuesday, marking a milestone in the grieving and recovery process for the congregation. “We’re ready for it to come down,” said Maxine Easom, chair of the rebuilding committee. “We can’t move forward until it does.”

Architects will finalize plans for the new church within four months, Easom said, and construction should take about one year. The church contains wood from the original construction in 1870. Wood walls were bricked over sometime after it was moved to its current location in 1903. John Frazier, of the demolition company Frazier Enterprises, expects the cleanup process to take about two weeks.

Crafted kernels popping up in Athens BY HUNTER LACEY @hunterlacey Popcorn Haven strives to bring customers happiness. The company dedicated to every aspect of popping corn came to Athens in April after the owners, identical twin brothers DeRon and Deon Ragland, polled customers on Facebook, asking where the next store should be located.  “Whenever you come into a Popcorn Haven, we want you to enjoy yourself,” said Traci Burchett, manager of the chain’s Athens location. “We give you three samples to get you started, and things just snowball from there.” Boasting more than 100 flavors, for many, walking into a Popcorn Haven mandates a preemptive ADHD prescription refill. Containers filled to the brim with popcorn in every hue conceivable line the walls from the floor to the ceiling in the store. “You never know what you’re going to be in the mood for when you come in,” Burchett said. Popcorn Haven’s assortment of flavors range from traditional to innovative. “Crab legs is one of our more outrageous flavors,” Burchett said. “It’s made with actual crab, so if you have a seafood allergy, I advise you not to eat it.” Other overwhelmingly imaginative flavors include root beer, loaded baked potato and key lime pie. Influenced by Chicago-style popcorn, Popcorn Haven’s signature flavors are the two cheese-coated caramel flavors. Burchett insists the flavor combination makes sense. “It sounds weird,

and it looks disgusting, but it is so awesome on your tongue,” Burchett said.   Flavors like Dawg Pound, an Oreo popcorn, and Dawg Treatz, wildberry popcorn, are specific to the Athens store and represent the University of Georgia with their distinct red and black pigment. “The top seller in the Athens area has been the caramel sea salt,” Burchett said. “If you have a gluten allergy, this is the only caramel you can eat because it’s just

butter and sugar.” Popcorn Haven offers at least 30 glutenfree options made with real ingredients, with the motto, “The flavor’s not on it ... It’s in it.” The popcorn aficionados cater to those with food allergies by diligently avoiding crosscontamination of flavors. But for the more daring patrons of popcorn, cross-contamination is where the fun begins. Burchett described a woman who entered the store, craving Tiramisuflavored popcorn.

“I mixed birthday cake and coffee,” Burchett said. “It’s really fun seeing [customers] experience the popcorn and what you can do with it,” Burchett said. “Popcorn just doesn’t come in three flavors — butter, cheese and caramel.” Popcorn Haven is located at 1021 Parkway Blvd off Epps Bridge Pkwy and is open Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

‘Friday Special,’ a pizza and cola popcorn, is one of Popcorn Haven's crazy flavors. Hunter lacey/Staff

Finding Fashion: Gameday style for this fall, between the hedges BY HUNTER LACEY @hunterlacey Football season is upon us, fellow students and Bulldogs, meaning the celebrated days of tailgating, cheering between the hedges and binge drinking after a legendary victory (or a disheartening loss) are quickly approaching. Soon, Instagram and Facebook will be inundated with softly-filtered gameday selfies and group photos of girls uniformly squatting outside Sanford Stadium with refined poise. Also not to go unmentioned are the more committed social media enthusiasts who will post entire collages of the aforementioned filtered selfies and group photos.  And let’s be honest, in these pictures that overtake social media, seldom is the game’s final score even mentioned. All eyes are on the vast display of spirited outfits.    Paris, Milan, New York City and London may have Fashion Week, but in Athens, we have gameday, where there’s a lot more beer and a famous pair of hedges borders the runway. Indeed, a walk between the hedges isn’t far off from a walk down the runway.  The colors are almost uniform-like — a rolling sea of red and black — but the shapes, styles and accessories seen are seemingly infinite. As for this season’s chic standouts, Emily Syrgley, stylist at Red Dress Boutique on College Avenue, hails the bandage skirt as a go-to gameday piece. “I think we’re going to see a lot of peplum with bandage skirts,” Syrgley said. “We’re also doing a lot of black- and white-striped [tops] with the skirts.” For the more bohemian Georgia fan, the maxi skirt is still a very much alive and thriving. “This summer [maxi skirts] were really popular, and I think they’ll continue into the fall,” said Melissa Funk, manager of Entourage.

And as per tradition in the South, cowboy boots will be ubiquitous in the stands of Sanford Stadium. “I like to wear a sleeveless dress with cowboy boots and aviator sunglasses,” Funk said. Another compliment to the cowboy boots is the “easy-breezy” shift dress, according to Syrgley. And for those fearful of the Western footwear, Lillybee University, an online shoe boutique, offers a spirited alternative. Created in 2012 by three working moms, Lillybee University produces collegiate-inspired flats. The striped red and black shoes make for a classy addition to any gameday ensemble. But regardless of footwear or attire, school spirit is the preeminent accessory for anyone between the hedges in wedges on the forthcoming Saturdays. Creating the perfect gameday ensemble is a strenuous undertaking. An outfit must be classic, but slightly avantgarde, sophisticated but bursting with Bulldog pride. For many, the concept of dressing to the nines to stand in a sweltering stadium seems baffling, but the notion is commonplace for many students at UGA. “You grow up a Georgia fan,” Funk said. “Anyone can wear a T-shirt or a jersey, but we show our pride in a different kind of way.” Athens represents an oasis of style and refinement — the epitome of Southern class — where students strive to represent their team with such grace. “UGA is really unique compared to other SEC schools, because all the girls love to get dressed up for games,” Syrgley said. “I think that girls take a lot of pride in what they look like, just like they take a lot of pride in their SEC team.” Whatever your style, it comes down to showing the finest of support for our favorite Bulldawgs Whether a classic black dress with a trendy red necklace or a maxi red skirt with a white top, you can't go wrong so long as it contains red and black.

Forget football — Gameday is Athens’ own fashion runway as girls prance around in the finest red and black attire to support the Bulldogs. David c bristow/Staff

BY ALEX EVERHART @alexbeverhart Although one of the main aspects of Athens is fashion, one local felt like there was a missing link in the industry here.  Lindsey McKinney, an Athens local and alumnae of the University of Georgia, filled it by opening Alta Moda, a new women’s boutique on Milledge Avenue, this summer. “I love the stores in Athens, so why not have another one? This has been my big dream my whole life,” McKinney said. Alta Moda means high fashion in Italian, and McKinney is focused on bringing that to the Athens area. “I want to close price range gap between Entourage and Heery’s,” McKinney said. The store has been McKinney’s fantasy for a while now. She worked in insurance her entire professional career, but three years ago she took the steps toward owning her own boutique. Her cousin, a fashion designer in New York, inspired her original love for fashion. McKinney was able to attend multiple New York fashion shows over the years. 

“That lit the fire for me,” McKinney said. McKinney’s mother was also a huge proponent and supporter of the project. She originally wanted to own a clothing store but never did. After much consideration, McKinney took her mother’s advice and purchased a site for the boutique. Alta Moda is located at the end of Milledge in an antique, white commercial house. It previously housed a dentist and chiropractor’s office but has been abandoned for several years.  McKinney gutted the entire house and knocked down several walls to create a new space for her boutique. “I had to look through the dirt and grime and imagine what it could be. It was a blank canvas for me,” McKinney said. The house was run down and very rotted when she discovered the building. After several months of renovation, the house now gives off a modern, “swinky” vibe according to McKinney.  The house allows for a comfortable environment and plenty of space for parking.  McKinney is also excited about the close proximity to Five Points. “I really wanted to be close to Five Points,” McKinney

said. “Five Points is starting to come back and I want to be a part of that.” However, McKinney’s main goal is to expose Athens to fashion hubs such as Los Angeles. McKinney believes there are many designers that are missing in Athens clothing.  “There are so many designers in L.A. missing in Athens. I have gotten contracts with many L.A. designers,” McKinney said. Alta Moda is currently getting new shipments of clothing in daily. The clothes are very trendy and up-to-date with the fashion industry. Designer brands such as Jewelry by Courtney, Two Peaches Designs, Ella Moss, Greylin, Splendid and I. Madeline are available in the store. Alta Moda also carries a variety of game day attire as well as jewelry made by local artists. The boutique carries something for everyone and for every budget. Clothes range in price from $30 - $225 and jewelry ranges from $10 - $500 from affordable costume accessories to finediamond pieces.  Alta Moda is located at 688 South Milledge Avenue and is open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Where to worship: Choosing community churches close to campus BY CAROLINE WINGATE @cmargaretw In the South, we are asked to chew with our mouths closed, speak politely to adults and never talk about politics or religion. As a Southern woman myself, I would like to open the discussion for religion in the buckle of the Bible Belt. Upon leaving our hometowns and venturing to the Classic City to be educated, we seek to reinvent ourselves, good and bad. Searching for our home away from home can arise in many different ways and can happen later in our college career. Finding a safe space to discuss what you believe or what you long to know more about is essential to development as a young person. Our Hope MCC Our Hope is a campus ministry that pushes the envelope of the stereotypical Southern university ministry. This group, led by Dr. Renee DuBose, is committed not only to providing a safe place for open discussion but also to address justice issues in this generation in general. Students are growing up and developing into their own without their family’s influence. With Our Hope Metropolitan Community Church, it is very clear that “this isn’t your grandmother’s church.” “The difference for us is we are progressive Christians,” DuBose said. “There is the primary outreach to the LGBT niche market. The church started in October 1968 when LGBT people were kicked out of their churches. It was started with the intention of having a safe place to worship. Over the last 44 years, the church has expanded to a global denomination that works with people who have even less rights than people in the United States.” Let us go back and look at a specific term: a progressive Christian. This type of Christian

is “someone, regardless of age, who has made a conscious decision to believe in Jesus Christ and is also progressive enough to understand that others may be on a different journey but won’t oppress others for being different,” DuBose said. Campus ministry in general and by definition is a bit more progressive. It is common to work with other groups and organizations, such as the resource center for LGBT students, and collaborate on group-interested projects. DuBose is a strong believer in the power of education and conversation, and that it will one day change the world. Georgia Christian Student Center Another voice among the campus ministry crowd is Adam Daniels, a campus minister for the Georgia Christian Student Center, a part of Campus View Church on South Lumpkin Street. This group meets at 7:30 p.m. for Bible study at the campus house located down the street from the mother church. Daniels points out the value in pushing people to the point of learning at the GCSC. “The GCSC is a place where everyone’s opinions are welcome,” Daniels said. “We don’t all necessarily agree, we are open to discussion though. The truth doesn’t need us to defend it — it will always be there.” Amongst other organizations, the GCSC sets itself a part with a devotion to discovering the path to salvation. “We are a ministry that focuses heavily on discipleship of Jesus and being a follower of Jesus. We think that everything else falls into place after that,” Daniels said. “Because of that focus, we have switched to challenging people more. This is a place for people who want to know who Jesus is and try to be intentional about challenging people.” Without challenges, a student cannot grow and remains stagnant.

This year, the GCSC started a discipleship program and will work in small groups more. “One of the problems of modern culture is a lot of us are not sure what we believe,” Daniels said. “We are inclined to dismiss someone who takes something seriously, and we don’t always talk about things intelligently or in a loving way. We want to teach Christians about that and how to talk to people. Spiritual growth is not a lightning bolt — it’s a long journey.” Most Christians believe that conversion begins with conversation, and this approach can be found at many campus ministries, notably the GCSC. “Looking at Christianity as a whole, we don’t need bigger churches. We need bigger Christians. We need more people who look like Christ,” said Daniels. This outlook can be applied to issues outside religion — we don’t need bigger CEOs, we need bigger team players. We don’t need more members of Obama’s cabinet, we need efficient and effective people working for good. There are many campus ministries at the University of Georgia — that should come as no surprise to you. I would like to show you the other side of the coin. According to the Campus Ministry Association at UGA, there are 28 campus ministries. All of these have varying sizes and influence on the students that roam this campus. Three of the campus ministries available are willing to show you how they are different from one another and also how they can serve you, the student. Our Hope is located at 1257 South 15th Street near Epps Bridge Parkway. The Georgia Christian Student Center is located at 1360 South Lumpkin Street. The GCSC’s campus house is located at 1354 South Lumpkin Street. ➤ Read the full story with an interview from Athens Church online

Ellie Goulding’s ‘Halcyon Days’ an unnecessary remake

1077 Baxter street • ThomaseyeCenter.com 706-549-7757

By Hilary Butschek @hilarylbutschek Among other new releases, Ellie Goulding’s “Halcyon Days” is too much too late. The album is 28 songs long, and they all meld together into an epic but monotonous electronic chant. “Halcyon Days” is a combination reissue of the deluxe version of 2012’s “Halcyon” along with 10 new tracks. The old songs, which lead the album, are almost indecipherable from the new. And while “Halcyon” had huge success in the United States (debuting at No. 9 on the Billboard 200), following it with 10 more songs just like it won’t gain Goulding much praise. The single from the new album, “Burn,” hit the top of the United Kingdom’s Official Singles Chart after its July 5 release, and it’s the only song on the album that stands out. Its simple repetition may come off as annoying at first, but after a few listens, singing along becomes compulsive. This is a dance album at heart, but it comes at a time when every other pop artist has spent a little time in the dance music phase. It’s getting old. “Halcyon Days” is light and inconsequential. Goulding doesn’t sing of heartbreak or challenge, or much of anything really. Her breathy, soprano tone glides over techno beats and synths, which creates the perfect combination of energetic beauty through each song. Even feature artist Tinie Tempah, a British rapper, can’t save the repetitious currents “Halcyon Days” gets stuck in. His lyrics on “Hanging On” sound too laid back, and he gives away gems like, “And if anybody said the grass is greener on the other side, well it ain’t.” The songs never go beyond superficial beauty. “Goodness Gracious,” for instance, replays the same tinkling electronic riff tens of times behind Goulding, who repeats “Goodness gracious, I can’t seem to stop calling it off.”

Our Hope Metropolitan Community Church connects with campus LGBT groups, offering a safe place to worship without fear of prejudice. david c bristow/Staff

‘Halcyon Days’ is nothing more than Ellie Goulding's 2012 album ‘Halcyon’ with 10 additional one-note songs tacked onto the end. Press I wish I knew what it was she was calling off — or maybe, why she was calling it off. But, Goulding remains elusive on those fronts, making it hard to connect emotionally with any of the songs. The bonus songs on the album are by far the highlight and the most transcendent. One track, “How Long Will I Love You,” is stripped of any electronic accompaniment. Featuring only piano, string section and drum set, Goulding’s voice is doubled and tripled in harmonies as she sings of her dedication to a demanding lover. Another bonus track, “Tessellate,” moves steadily along with only compelling snaps and Goulding’s vibrato holding it together. Featuring a sexy saxophone solo, the song tells a story, unlike any of the official tracks on the album. Overall, “Halcyon Days” doesn’t do a good job of showing if Goulding has learned any new tricks.
