Defense comfortable in year two of scheme By MITCH BLOMERT THE RED & BLACK The 2011 edition of G-Day wasn’t exactly a shootout. But Georgia coaches aren’t fretting over the minimal offense in the black team’s 18-11 victory over the red team on Saturday at Sanford Stadium. Instead, they’re praising the defense for a strong showing in the team’s spring practice finale. With so many questions entering the spring regarding the Bulldogs’ offense — particularly how it would replace former standout A.J. Green in the lineup — the defense may have unexpectedly provided an answer. “I thought their approach was good,” Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham said. “The guys who are going to help us next year — I thought those guys performed and did the

SARA CALDWELL | The Red & Black

things they had to complete our spring. From that standpoint, I was pleased with the way we finished.” Neither team racked up serious yardage. The red team finished the game with

266 total yards, while the black team had 225. The black team also recovered three of the red team’s four fumbles. Both teams’ defenses were most potent in stop-

ping the running game, with only 138 yards between the two teams. The most yards accumulated by a single running back was Carlton Thomas, who managed only 48 yards on 13 carries. If the numbers prove anything, it’s that the defense could be finally reaping the benefits of the 3-4 scheme that Grantham brought to Georgia a year ago. “If you can’t stop people up the gut, you have tremendous problems in any defensive scheme,” Georgia head coach Mark Richt said. “In a 3-4 in particular, your nose guard has to be a guy than can force double teams. If he gets single-blocked, it’s too easy to get up on linebackers and get positive yards. That guy has to be able to let those middle linebackers run free.” See NOSE, Page 6

Ken Malcome is in the middle — the middle of the starting tailback conversation for the Georgia football team this fall, that is. After a G-Day performance on Saturday where he ran for 39 yards and a touchdown on seven carries — which included the game-clinching 12-yard touchdown run in the black team’s 18-11 victory — his name was on the tip of everyone’s tongue. “He looked tremendous,” said quarterback Aaron Murray, who was Malcome’s teammate on the black team. “He’s a powerful back. He just sometimes wants to run over anyone in his path and definitely a guy if it’s fourth-andone, fourth-and-two, is gonna put his shoulder down and get those yards. He broke a lot of tackles and made some great plays.” Murray was not the only

Bulldog who took notice of Malcome’s play. “Ken’s a beast,” red team cocaptain Ben Jones said. “He really runs hard. He was banged up a bit early in the spring, but he’s definitely got my pick. I would have drafted him early. Ken’s my boy. It’s great to have him on our team.” Playing a role in Saturday’s victory came as a bit of vindication for Malcome, who missed much of this spring battling a groin injury. “He’s been real frustrated because he hasn’t really had a chance to show himself this spring because of his injury,” offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said. “He played real hard, and that’s kind

G-Day fans enjoyed more relaxed tailgating regulations on North Campus this weekend. In March, the University accepted plans to loosen the tailgating restrictions to allow fans to set up five hours before kickoff instead of four and allow tents and tables up to six feet long. Following the 2009 football season, the University announced changes limiting tailgating on North Campus in response to large amounts of trash left by fans. Saturday’s G-Day kickoff was the first tailgating opportunity for fans since the changes. Friday afternoon George Stafford, associate vice president of auxiliary and administrative services, said he expected University police and other officials to enforce the new rules. “I’m thinking they will,” Stafford said. “I don’t see any reason why not.” Some tailgaters were already aware of the new tailgating rules. A few clusters of tables and chairs dotted North Campus as fans braved the clouds until the sky cleared mid-morning. “They were probably needed and I think this strikes a better balance,” said Duff Ayers, a third-year University law student. “They overreached last year.” Ayers said rules such as the four-hour time restriction kept him away from North Campus tailgating. “I didn’t come here at all last year because of the rules,” he said. “I noticed just a general attitude of frustration.” Cam Heiliger, an alumnus from Charlottesville, Va., praised last season’s changes for decreasing the amount of trash left by tailgaters. “You’d see it after gamedays, just piles of trash everywhere,” Heiliger said. “For me it was the smell,” Ayers added. Heiliger and Ayers agreed the

Christine Bennett forgets the last time she was in church. She went last Christmas, or the one before that — a few months ago or a year. But she remembers the sermon clearly. Pastor Johnny Hunt yelled that night, as he sometimes did. And he spoke of God. “It was very jarring,” Bennett said. “Especially because like the whole message that they were giving [of] bringing Christianity to the ignorant people in the Middle East, ’cause they were talking about the war in Iraq and other stuff, it just kind of really struck me as like, ‘Wow, I really don’t See GOD, Page 3

CRIME NOTEBOOK Student arrested after noise complaint

ONLINE

Documents

A University student was charged with public intoxication Saturday night after an argument in his apartment, according to an Athens-Clarke County Police report. An officer was dispatched to River Mill Apartments in reference to a noise complaint of people arguing. When the officer arrived and stood in the parking lot, he reportedly could hear several males and a female screaming from their top-floor apartment. One of the males was University student Tyler Adam Jennings, 23. The officer went to the apartment and listened for a few minutes before knocking on the door. When he and another officer knocked, Tyler Jennings, his brother Travis Michael Jennings, 20, and Mitchell Bruce Gain, 19, answered the door. The males told the officers the female had left. One officer searched the apartment and found no one else. Tyler Jennings and the other two males were “very intoxicated,� according to the report. There were “beer cans in plain sight.� Travis Jennings and Gain said they were underage, and Tyler Jennings said he was more than 21 years old. All admitted to consuming alcohol. They said their fight was “a sibling argument,� according to the document. The officer reportedly “noticed some paint chips on the floor by the door,� and Tyler Jennings “admitted to attempting to kick in the door to gain entry to his apartment and damaging the door frame.� Travis Jennings and Gains were charged with underage possession of alcohol. They were arrested along with Tyler Jennings and transported to Clarke County Jail. Student arrested on alcohol charges A University student was charged with underage possession or consumption of alcohol Saturday, according to an Athens-Clarke County Police report. Britain Annelle Cecil, 19, and a male entered an alley on East Clayton Street behind Flanagan’s Bar. Cecil was “watching out� while the male urinated, according to the document. Cecil told the male to

stop when she saw officers. When the male stopped urinating to give the officers his ID, one officer reportedly saw Cecil “take an ID out of her wallet and place it into her purse.� Cecil handed officers her real license. She said she hadn’t been drinking, but officers noted red eyes, flushed face and the smell of alcohol, according to the document. Cecil agreed to take a breathalyzer test, but she wouldn’t blow into the tube. The officer eventually obtained a “passive reading� that Cecil was positive for alcohol. She was arrested and transported to Clarke County Jail. A fake ID was found in Cecil’s purse in a search after the arrest. When police later gathered information, Cecil reportedly said “she was with homeland security and that people were watching her.� Student arrested after yelling at officers A University student was charged with public intoxication Saturday night after cursing at officers, according to an Athens-Clarke County Police report. Two officers observed a male drinking a beer on the sidewalk near Magnolia’s Bar. An officer was issuing a citation to the male for open container when Tyler Hodge, 22, came up to the officer and offender, yelling obscenities. The officer told Hodge to show him his ID. Hodge reportedly had red, glassy eyes and the smell of alcohol on his breath. Hodge was told by the officer to leave the area and stop yelling “or else be arrested, so he said, ‘OK,’ and walked away,� according to the document. A few minutes after the officer issued the citation, Hodge got into the other male’s face in a crowd of people in front of the bar. He reportedly “started shoving him in the chest� and yelling, “This is f’n BS!� Hodge was arrested and transported to Clarke County Jail. After he was arrested, Hodge reportedly “apologized, asked for a warning and to be allowed to go home.� — Compiled by Adina Solomon

S Alumnus Troy Burwell and his family tailgated on North Campus before the G-Day game Saturday. Burwell said he liked the peaceful and calm setting of tailgating on North Campus.

TAILGATING: New rules provide balance ¢ From Page 1 preservation of North Campus was important, especially to people visiting for the first time. “You want to maintain the beauty of North Campus,â€? Heiliger said. “This is a better balance than last year.â€? One of the goals of the North Campus tailgating restrictions was to make the area seem more “parklike,â€? said Dexter Adams, director of grounds for the Physical Plant, in an interview following last year’s G-Day game. Alumnus Troy Burwell and his wife came with their two children to enjoy a picnic on North Campus before

the game. The family had never tailgated during a G-Day game, but said North Campus seemed calmer. “We like it, but now we have kids,� Burwell said. “It’s really cool and peaceful and we can enjoy playing in the grass with our children.� Josh Delaney, president of the Student Government Association, said he was glad that the changes would be taking effect. “We made a promise that we were going to try to preserve that tradition and bring aspects of it back, so I’m really happy that our students, fans and alumni will be able to enjoy tailgating on North Campus on G-Day and the fall season.�

Jewish students celebrate Passover’s meaning still relevant today By SARAH GIARRATANA THE RED & BLACK Break out the matzo — the University’s surrounding Jewish organizations are celebrating Passover today until April 26. Though students traditionally go home to celebrate, Chabad and Hillel will offer Seder meals for students today and Tuesday with Passover-friendly options continuing for the rest of week. “‘Seder’ actually means ‘order,’ so there’s an order to the ritual of the night,” said Rabbi Michoel Refson, co-director of Chabad. The Seder, a meal where participants tell the story of Moses leading the first Jewish people out of Egypt, includes symbolic food such as matzo — an un-leavened bread carried by the travelers from Egypt. While celebrating this tradition, Refson said he aims to help his students see the meaning of Passover in modern times. “Everything we celebrate in Judaism today has to have some relevance to our personal lives — it happened 2,000 years ago, that’s not very relevant,” Refson said. “The relevance to our personal lives is that everybody has things that constrain them. You live within your comfort zone and one of the messages of Passover is to go beyond your comfort zone.” For Naomi Sidlow, a freshman biology major from Atlanta, Passover means a time celebrating with family. “This year, I’m going home Monday night to have a Seder with my family,” Sidlow said. “We’re going to have a big

CHABAD SEDER MEAL When: Tonight at 8:15; Tuesday at 8:30 Where: Chabad House at 1491 S. Lumpkin St. More Information: RSVP and find out more on the Chabad website. meal, and I’ll just stay there until Wednesday.” Sidlow said it is a challenge to fit in such a big holiday during the end of the semester. “It’s kind of inconvenient also, because it’s right when finals reviews start. Honestly, if it was at the beginning of the year and I got to miss class and it was excused for a holiday, I’d be like, ‘Yes, this is the best thing ever,’” Sidlow said. “But because everything is drawing to a close and professors are trying to jam in as much as they can, it’s pretty crazy.” For students unable to go home, both Chabad and Hillel aim to provide a place where students can celebrate. “To me, it’s an opportunity for everybody to get together, celebrate, contemplate, to have fun,” Refson said. “It’s also a time of family and a lot of people go home to their families, but whoever’s not, we try to create a family-type Passover meal here, everything we do here, we try to create a family atmosphere.” Chabad’s Seder meal, hosted by Refson and his wife, will occur today at 8:15 p.m. at the Chabad House on South Lumpkin Street. “We’re going to have an easy-to-follow, non-Hebrew-intensive Seder,” Refson said. “Followed with a scrumptious brisket dinner.” To RSVP, forms and more information are available on the organization’s website.

GOD: Student greets Judaism ¢ From Page 1 agree with this at all.’” But she hadn’t returned with her family as a Baptist, as she was raised. It’d been years since Bennett had started practicing Judaism, and she’d only stopped in at her parents’ request — to visit, but not to believe. Searching for God Christine Bennett forgets when her family stopped going to church. She knows they used to go. But that was in Tampa Bay, before the move on Christmas Eve more than a decade ago. Afterward, the memories seem fewer. God grew smaller for her in Georgia. “And when we did [go to church], I did not like it,” she said. “I didn’t enjoy going. I didn’t enjoy what was being preached.” The attitudes and practices were restrictive, she said, and judgmental. “I just didn’t like how they approached humanity, in the sense of, ‘You have to believe one certain way. You have to follow this one path,’” Bennett said. “And to me, I feel like to be a good or righteous person you don’t have to do something one way.” She cuts in on her thought. “I don’t feel like God would punish someone just because they didn’t believe in something.” As a sophomore in high school Bennett began to read the Bible more. “And then I realized, ‘Why am I even doing this?’” she said. She couldn’t find her way into the religion. “Going to a sermon and sitting there and being preached at — I didn’t come away from the sermon feeling good,” she said. “Yes, you’re supposed to criticize yourself, I guess, and acknowledge sin and all that, but I feel like praising God and prayer should be uplifting, introspective, and you should come away with positive results, you know?” Unhappy with the God she knew, Bennett went looking for another. Finding a place Christine Bennett remembers the first time she decided to go to Shabbat. “I was passing through Tate and I saw the sign for Hillel, which is the Jewish student organization,” she said. “I was like, ‘Well, I might as well go and see if I can’t learn about Judaism, just to be able to appreciate it for him, and be able to know what was important for him.’” A freshman, Bennett had been dating “him” — Doug Halpert — for only a few months until he left for Boston. She was alone in Athens, a self-professed agnostic who was curious. So she went. “And it was a very dif-

ferent experience from Christianity, a completely different service where you’re more involved” she said. Bennett remembers how comfortable she felt. “It’s just a really good atmosphere where you can think and think openly,” she said. “And you can discuss with other people without having to worry about thinking the wrong thing.” Her boyfriend came home that Thanksgiving and she surprised him — she’d decided to convert. “I knew she wasn’t terribly religious,” he said. He knew when they started dating that she hadn’t been to church in a long time — that it didn’t do a lot for her. But she’d found something in Judaism. Working with Halpert’s rabbi, Bennett began the process two years later. Throughout the process, she continued to be a part of the University’s Jewish community. She grew comfortable. When she attended service, people spoke to her, knew her name. “If you go by the story in the Bible, where Ruth converts, she just says, ‘Your people are my people. I will go wherever you go,’” Bennett said. “So to me, basically saying I was a Jew — that was it.” Breaking her silence The first Friday in April, Bennett arrives early. The service is set to

begin in minutes and there are not more than a dozen people in the building. They’re waiting until more come before the service can begin. Sometimes 50 show up, she says — sometimes just 10. Shabbat begins minutes before sundown on Friday with a small ceremony. A white candle sits in the next room. The women light it, Bennett said, as a way of welcoming Shabbat. One by one they stand, forming a loose ring. Jules, a tiny woman beneath a cascade of black curls, strikes a match, and together they recite a blessing. Upstairs, prayers soon begin. Ten people in semicircle, starting to read: the recitations — a forest of consonants and Hebrew characters — blend like a chant. “I didn’t speak the first few months I was here,” Bennett said. “It took me a while.” Now she follows every word. Downstairs, the group spreads across two tables. At each place is a small cup of grape juice, and at the head of one table stands Joel Marcovitch, the center’s director. He pours too much and as his cup overflows he asks, “Why am I spilling?” “Because I’m overflowing with joy!” the crowd responds. A blessing starts, voices rising together. They break bread as the sun sets.

GPA requirement OK for minorities C

ongratulations to Crissinda Ponder (“GPA requirement too high for some,” April 14) for finding a solution to HOPE cuts and the lack of racial diversity on college campuses: Lowering the GPA standard for the Zell Miller Scholarship so more minorities can qualify for full tuition under HOPE. What better way to send a message to college students that students of all races are equal and should be held to the same academic standards than lowering the bar so those already considered intellectually inferior can make the cut? Alright, I’m done being sarcastic. Now I’ll tell you how I really feel. The proposal to lower academic standards for the Zell Miller Scholarship so that more minorities can qualify for it reeks of condescension. I can just hear a high school teacher describing the Zell Miller Scholarship to his or her students if Ponder’s suggestions were made: “Well, Johnny, the requirement for the Zell Miller Scholarship used to be a 3.7 GPA and a 1200 SAT or 26 ACT. But a minority student pointed out that those requirements are too high for black students. The state immediately lowered the GPA requirement to a 3.3.” What does that say? A GPA requirement of 3.7 is good for white students,

Opinions

but too high for black students? I agree that a solution to the HOPE cuts needs to be found. The last thing anybody wants is for students of Ponder’s background to have to struggle even harder to pay for a college education. But let’s be honest: despite the love affair U.S. public colleges have had with diversity for the last few decades, racial diversity on college campuses has never been proven to be essential for quality education. Academic rigor — the combination of academically competitive students and quality instructors — is essential. How do you encourage all students to be as academically competitive as they can? You hold them to high standards and demand they meet those standards — even if a disproportionate amount of one group fails. As a Black American student, I am offended. We must encourage academic success — not an easy way out. — Yetunde Ogunsakin is a junior from Warner Robins majoring in psychology and is a news writer for The Red & Black

I continue to respect Charles Hicks’ bravery in his columns (“Give forgiveness for human flaws,” April 12). He is honest, no matter what the social repercussions may be. I know Hicks personally, and I know that the majority of his friends are leaders with the Wesley Foundation. Even though he faces the risk of alienating himself from many of his acquaintances, he shared his true opinion for 30,000 people to read. His courage is admirable, and we can all respect his bravery, no matter what our opinions may be. REBECCA POGUE Junior, Atlanta Dance

HOPE Scholarship still a great deal When I opened up Friday’s paper, I was a little disappointed to find no rebuttal to Crissinda Ponder’s column (“GPA requirement too high for some,” April 14). I hope it’s not because the rest of the UGA community agrees with her argument. Yes, the new requirements for full tuition coverage are steeper, but they’re not impossible. With grade inflation prevalent in U.S. high schools, a 3.7 GPA (and 1200 SAT) is not too much to ask for someone who expects to receive free college tuition. And more so, maintaining a 3.3 to keep the full ride is not that difficult either. Believe me, I was there not that long ago.

With a little more discipline and studying, I bet most students could make the grades to earn and keep the Zell Miller Scholarship. What’s wrong with raising the bar? Afraid you can’t rise to the challenge? For argument’s sake, let’s just say that your high school classes are too tough or you have a bad semester in college and don’t qualify for the Zell Miller Scholarship — a 3.0 GPA still gets 90 percent of your college education covered (if you attend a public school). For UGA, where tuition and fees are $8,736 per year, that means you as a student pay less than $1,000 per year for a college education. To me, that’s an amazing deal! Despite Ponder’s thinking, the HOPE scholarship is far from an “entitlement.” It is a merit-based scholarship awarded to those students who work hard and take their studies seriously, and one that students in many other states don’t get. Like it or not, our educational system promises access to a free education through 12th grade — beyond that is up to you. I do understand that coming up with extra money to pay for college is really difficult, especially for someone who is on their own. Instead of complaining, why not be thankful that something like the HOPE scholarship is available at all? And for those out-ofpocket expenses, there are student loans, tax breaks, or — dare I say it? — a job. HEATHER MCCORMICK Alumna, Carrollton Chemistry and biology

Leaders should be held responsible T

he only person in sight is a young farm boy. A “smooth-faced kid, about 15 years old.” His name is Gul Mudin. Oh, the Afghani life. Two American soldiers enter stage right. They’re a little older than the boy. One is 19. The other is 21. They call to him in Pashto, the boy’s language. He turns and starts in their direction. Then they throw a grenade at him and open fire with a machine gun and an M4 carbine. Welcome to Afghanistan — home of the Bravo Company’s 3rd platoon. The recent issue of Rolling Stone magazine includes an exposé about how a group of American Marines known as “The Kill Team” murdered at least four Afghans for sport and covered up the incidents with paltry excuses (“The Kill Team: How U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan murdered innocent civilians,” April 14). And then they took pictures with their victims. So far, five low-ranking troops have been charged with murder. But no officers responsible for the troops have been charged as of the article’s publication. As a matter of fact, 1st Lt. Roman Ligsay of the assassins unit has been promoted to captain, according to Rolling Stone. And we babbled about The Red & Black’s “Sexy Scholar” cover?

This is serious. Robert Gates, the Secretary of Defense and right-hand man of our Nobel Peace Prize-winning president, is not being held accountable. The Pentagon knew and banned anyone associated with the events from speaking to the press about the crimes. They also seized any flash-drive suspected of having pictures connected to the 3rd Platoon’s bloody free-for-all. But it’s hard to keep a platoon with a notorious reputation under wraps. Especially with Mark Boal — the man behind the Academy Award winning screenplay for “The Hurt Locker”— as the journalist putting together the pieces. And since the pictures and the article were released, a reaction from the public has been noticeably muted amidst the ongoing budget conflict. Flashback to Abu Ghraib in 2004. People went crazy when they found out. The scandal involved soldiers sodomizing Iraqis with batons, homicide and unbelievable acts of torture at the hands of the US 320th Military Police Battalion, according to The New York Times. Higher ups in politics and media were quick to rail against the Bush

On Passover, think of victims of oppression

G

rowing up, I loved celebrating Passover with my

family. At the time, I had little understanding of the religious significance of the holiday. For me, it was simply an excuse to eat good food and listen to family stories. But as I grew older, my outlook became increasingly secular. I began to question the moral and factual validity behind Passover. Passover has its origins in the book of Exodus, which describes the ancient Hebrews’ enslavement and struggle for freedom in Egypt. However, the book of Exodus was written so long ago no one knows how much of it is fact and how much is fiction. Archeological excavations have found no evidence ancient Israelites were ever enslaved in Egypt or ever wandered around the Sinai Desert for 40 years, according to archeologist Israel Finklestein of Tel Aviv University. The archeological evidence indicates Israel emerged from the

administration. “In Iraq, what happened at that prison, it is now clear, is not the result of random acts of a few bad apples,” said former Vice President Al Gore according to MoveOn.org. “It was the natural consequence of the Bush Administration policy.” The New York Times, The Boston Globe and The Economist each called for the resignation of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Rumsfeld was finally able to leave his position in 2006 after Bush accepted his third attempt at resignation. And a precedent was set. Only Gates isn’t following it. Where are the critics now? Where is justice? One person was murdered in Abu Ghraib, according to CBS News. At least four people were murdered in this latest incident. Gates is getting a free ride. And we have picture perfect evidence of “The Kill Team.” If we are not going to hold our Secretary of Defense or the people he has put in positions of authority accountable for atrocious acts of violence committed on their watch, then we have no right to include, “with liberty and justice for all” in the pledge of allegiance. The Pentagon is due for a spring-cleaning.

JONATHAN RICH Canaanites, who were joined by a small number of Semites from Egypt. This may be the true source for the Exodus legend. Morally, the Passover story is problematic as well. God hardened Pharaoh’s heart and inflicted 10 plagues on the Egyptian people: blood, frogs, gnats, flies, cattle disease, boils, hail, locusts, darkness and death of the firstborn, according to Exodus. It is never explained why an all powerful God had to sacrifice innocent Egyptians when he could have simply changed Pharaoh’s mind. Apparently, Yahweh works in brutal and terribly inefficient ways. How can we celebrate our freedom without acknowledging the Egyptians who were sacrificed along the way? Despite my reservations, I find Passover to be a wonderful holiday —

for Jews and Gentiles alike. It just requires a little tweaking to fit with our modern secular world. The factuality of Exodus is less important than the lessons it can teach us. More than anything else, Passover is a celebration of all people’s inherent desire to be free. This message has stuck with Jews throughout our people’s long history. Although we are “the chosen ones,” we have suffered more persecution than perhaps any other group of people. Our salvation will not come from God above, but through the light within our hearts. We are responsible for our own destinies. Jewish history is the story of adaptability. We are a world people who have the ability to adapt to differing circumstances and cultural milieus — while still retaining our unique traditions. And though we are hated by many, our struggle has inspired oppressed people throughout the world.

The story of the ancient Israelites inspired African-American slaves to fight for their freedom. Abolitionists saw a connection to themselves in the story of Passover as they sang the song “Go Down Moses.” As Jews, we must recognize our fate is tied with the fate of every other human being on this planet. We cannot enjoy freedom while others remain oppressed. As we spill our wine for the ancient plagues in Egypt, we should think of the modern tragedies plaguing humankind — war, violence, bigotry, racism, homophobia, ignorance, intolerance, greed, superstition, poverty and disease. The struggle of our ancestors will inspire us to save humanity from these modern plagues. So enjoy your Passover Seder this year. But keep in mind — freedom will not come from above, but from within ourselves. — Jonathan Rich is a sophomore from Alpharetta majoring in sociology

Q&A

EMMA ROBERTS actress in ‘Scream 4’

‘Scream 4’ Welcome back to Woodsboro. With an opening sequence that challenges the surprise and amusement of “Tropic Thunder,” with a little “Inception” mind-melting thrown in, “Scream 4” wastes no time doing what it does best — planting its tongue firmly in its check for a joyous massacre-ride. At its core, “Scream 4” is still all about Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), who returns to Woodsboro coincidentally (ha!) on the anniversary of the murders that killed her friends in the first installment. Any worries that this may be some “self-aware, postmodern, meta shit” as one character laments, are unfounded. Kevin Williamson’s screenplay and Wes Craven’s execution as director avoid the lame with the lascivious. What the audience wants is blood — and blood is what it gets. In parking garages and bedrooms, through windows and front doors — the mailman isn’t the only one dropping things through the slot — the murders are as creative as they are gory, funny and wrong. The cast is a role call of young Hollywood: Emma Roberts as Jill Roberts, the scorned girlfriend of one character slash cousin of Sidney; Hayden Panettiere as Kirby Reed, Jill’s best friend and a slasher-movie geek’s wet dream; Lucy Hale (“Pretty Little Liars”), Shenae Grimes (“90210”), Anna Paquin (“True Blood”), Kristen Bell (“Veronica Mars”) and Aimee Teegarden (“Friday Night Lights”). But a good remake won’t mess around too much with the original, and that is why Sheriff Dewey Riley (David Arquette) and newswoman-turned“Stab” author Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) are still around — out of practical and comedic necessity. As always, there are two killers to unmask: one predictable, and one ... not so much. An impressive new installment, “Scream 4” will go down as a favorite for horror fans. — Elaine Kelch

On April 5, actress Emma Roberts spoke with college journalists via conference call about “Scream 4,” which hit theaters Friday. Topics included her reasons for participating in the new installment of the franchise as well as her perspective on the horrorslasher genre. — Elaine Kelch How is the acting process different for you now than it was when you first began acting? It’s still really fun for me. It’s definitely different just as far as the roles that I’ve been going up for. When I was younger, I guess I used to audition a lot and now I kind of go in for meetings, which I think is just better, because I’m better one-on-one talking and being myself than I am coming in and right away being someone else. When you saw the first ‘Scream’ movie, did you ever dream of starring in one of the sequels? It was one of those things that I just never thought was a possibility. So when this came up I was so intrigued by it and I thought it’s been so long since the last one, but yet this seems like a perfect time for it to come out. What were your memories of the original film growing up? For me, they scared me a lot — especially the first one. Just because with “Scream” they all have a sense of realness to them, because when you think of the logistics of it, it’s all really simple — it’s someone that dislikes you, that’s literally just gonna kill you with a knife and he’s going to dress up. And that’s really scary because most other movies have the supernatural or ghosts. It’s never so simple. The ‘Scream’ series has a lot of really strong female actresses. Were you nervous about joining that tradition? I was more excited than anything else because when I auditioned I really didn’t think I was going to get the part at all. And when I did I think my excitement really overshawdowed any feelings of doubt or hesitation. And it was just really fun to get to work with Hayden Panettiere, who’s become a good friend, and Neve Campbell and Courteney Cox. They’re all so different and all just so much fun to be around.

S Jill Roberts, who is played by Emma Roberts in ‘Scream 4,’ is the cousin of Sidney Prescott, the main heroine of the slasher series. As part of the younger generation coming into the franchise, how did the veterans help you adapt? They were really cool because a lot of times I’ve worked on casts where there’s a mixture of younger cast and older cast, and it’s usually very divided. And with Neve, David [Arquette] and Courteney on screen, they acted like we’d all known each other forever. Neve would always invite us over to her house all the time. And David and Courteney would have us over for dinner. David would cook for us.

Now that you’re a slasher-flick veteran, what advice would you give to young, attractive college students that may find themselves prey to a serial killer? I would say, “Don’t go to parking structures at night by yourself without a friend.” And, “Don’t ever say, ‘I’ll be right back,’” because you probably won’t … ever.

Your character, Jill Roberts, is Sidney Prescott’s cousin in the film. Would you consider yourself as the next-generation Sidney Prescott? How does your character sort of compare to Prescott? Well, I remember when I auditioned I had really short blonde hair. When I got the part, Wes Craven called me and he was like, “We want you to look more like Neve, how Sidney does in the other movies, so we’re going to give you long, dark, dark, dark brown hair.”

What are some of the new 21st century horror conventions that your character, Jill Roberts, has to acknowledge in the film? I’m trying to think of which ones I can say. Well I guess one of them is quite shocking: virgins can die now. So, you’re no longer safe if you’re a virgin, which you have been for the past, you know, whatever, 50 years. So that was a funny one a couple of the boys in the movie get to talk about.

How did you have to adapt to your role in ‘Scream 4’ since, previously, roles you’ve played in were so different? It was one of those things that my look — as far as the way I look — was transformed, which was really cool because the movie before this was “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” and I had short blonde hair and hardly wore any makeup. In this one I have long, really, really dark brown hair and I definitely look more mature. So that for me was kinda like the first step.

Fans of the movie are interested in the gory details. What was your favorite way that someone got killed? I wish I could tell you. I can’t tell you how people got killed in this one because there are some really good ones that you’ll never think people would get killed that way. But I will say that there is a lot of blood. And, I actually tasted some of the blood. It smells like maple syrup, and it does not taste very good.

Gym Dogs fall at nationals NOSE: Position changes help Ding gets bars spark improvement at G-Day championship By CHRIS D’ANIELLO THE RED & BLACK Georgia was eliminated from the NCAA Gymnastics Championships Friday in Cleveland when they posted their lowest team score of the season — 195.450 — and placed fourth in the semifinals. The weekend highlighted by Friday’s disappointment ended with a glimmer of excitement for the No. 7 Gym Dogs, however, as junior Kat Ding earned the uneven bars title with a 9.9125 in the NCAA Gymnastics Individual Championships Sunday. “It still hasn’t sunk in,” Ding said in a release. “It’s good to know that all the hard work has paid off. Being second in the lineup was kind of intimidating. I didn’t know what to expect. It was nerve-wracking sitting there and watching everybody doing their normal things. They all hit really good routines and I’m thankful today was the day my routine decided to show up.” Despite some solid individual performances, Georgia struggled as a team Friday and tied for fourth with Arkansas as the team failed to qualify for Saturday’s Super Six

Clark said he locked the doors to the gym to “let that loss sink in” to his gymnasts. Following this season, however, Clark is already focusing on the future of his squad. “We did some soul searching,” he said. “And we’re working on fixing some things and moving forward.”

The black team got that kind of player in nose guard Kwame Geathers, the spring’s defensive MVP and a leading candidate to start at the position in 2011. The 6-foot-6, 350-pound redshirt freshman had two tackles for loss for minus8 yards and a forced fumble. One of his tackles for loss was a thunderous hit on running back Caleb King in the second quarter that pushed the red team back five yards and forced a punt. “It’s very important to come out and turn some heads,” Geathers said. “I was just looking forward to coming out and competing like I did all spring.” The red team also had positive accolades on the defensive line, most notably redshirt freshman defensive end Derrick Lott. The 6-foot-4, 303-pounder had 2.5 tackles for loss, two sacks and a safety on the game’s first drive that

We’re really proud of him, and if he hadn’t tripped that one time, I think he would have scored on another run.” Malcome’s name was also on the mind of head coach Mark Richt, as the first question in his postgame news conference was in regards to the redshirt freshman tailback. “Kenny Malcome made some nice runs,” Richt said Saturday. “Looked MALCOME like he had space, but he took advantage of it. He’s always finished runs well. That’s been the thing we liked the most about Kenny — when he makes contact, he’s normally knocking somebody back and running through a tackle.

We just didn’t get to see a lot of that most of the spring since he was hurt.” From a fan perspective, though, it was quite obvious who is expected to start, as fans swarmed around top-ranked tailback recruit Isaiah Crowell for autographs. But those fans who believe the enthusiasm over Malcome should be tempered with the impending arrival of Crowell this fall should go talk to Jones. He said the stable of running backs — Malcome, Carlton Thomas, Caleb King and Washaun Ealey — are not going to roll over and hand Crowell the starting job in the backfield. “I’m sure they hear [about Crowell] a lot, but these guys have really been working hard, and once Crowell gets here he’s going to have to jump right in and work as hard as everybody else,” Jones said. “He’s going to have to come in and earn his spot at Georgia, it’s not just given to you.”
