Former AD’s arrest shocks Bulldog Nation Interim, search team selected

THE EVANS SAGA

By BETH POLLAK THE RED & BLACK An early-morning phone call interrupted President Michael Adams’ vacation in Nashville and set into effect a series of difficult decisions for the University leader. In his July 6 monthly media briefing, Adams named an interim athletic director for the University and a five-person search committee to find a permanent replacement for former athletic director Damon Evans. Adams accepted Evans’ resignation July 4 following the former AD’s arrest June 30 for DUI and failure to maintain lane. “The past five days have been very difficult, even sad, for all of us,” Adams said. “But we still have important work to do, and it is time for us to move on.” Adams said he does not have a specific timetable in mind for finding a replacement, but that a search of this type generally could take six months to a year. “I’m looking for a person with a high level of experience in the business of athletics,” Adams said. “I’m looking for a person who understands and appreciates athletics at this level. As always, I’m looking for a person

FUHRMANN

June 30, 11:55 p.m. Georgia Athletic Director Damon Evans is pulled over in Atlanta by the Georgia State Patrol. After a field sobriety test was performed, he was charged with DUI and driving in an improper lane. A passenger in Evans’ car, 28-year-old Courtney Fuhrmann, of Atlanta, was also arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

July 1, 6:30 p.m. Evans returns to Athens, and during a news conference before a media throng, apologizes for the arrest. “I let this University down, I let my family down, I let those in the Bulldog nation down,” Evans said. “I let so many people down that believe in me. My goal has always been to represent this institution in the utmost fashion, unfortunately I failed at that. I failed miserably.”

Wimbledon turns Isner into star By RYAN BLACK THE RED & BLACK You would think after weeks of constant attention in the aftermath of his historic Wimbledon match versus Nicolas Mahut, University alumnus John Isner would be tired of answering questions about it by now. You couldn’t be more wrong. “It’s become pretty routine,” Isner said. “I feel like a robot by now, but it’s fine, because I’ll answer whatever questions come my way.” Because of the attention his Wimbledon match commanded, non-tennis fans now know who he is. “People know I’m a tennis player now,” he said. “They don’t just assume I’m a basketball player.” The 6-foot-9 Isner’s life has been a whirlwind in the two weeks since his Wimbledon epic concluded on June 24. “It’s been kind of crazy,” he said. “I never thought after Wimbledon I would be on Letterman and throwing out the first pitch at a Yankees game, but you know, it happened, and I’m just glad I was a part of that match. It was a pretty historic, crazy, never-seen-before match.” “Never-seen-before” is right. Isner’s first round match versus Mahut, which spanned three days — 11 hours and five minutes total — became the longest match in tennis history before Isner finally won by a mind-numbing score of 6-4, 3-6, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (3), 70-68. The old record for longest-lasting tennis match was six hours and 33 minutes, but in

the fifth set alone, Isner and Mahut competed for eight hours and 11 minutes. Isner had to be back on the court the next day for his second round match against Thiemo de Bakker, but lost in straight sets in 74 minutes, 6-0, 6-3, 6-2. Isner, who was in Athens July 6 training individually and helping out with the Bulldog Tennis Camp, said the fact he was seen wearing University shirts and hats during most of his interviews at Wimbledon was not a conscious effort on his part to do so. “I obviously have a lot of Georgia tennis gear — Georgia gear in general — and I pack that in my suitcase pretty much everywhere I go,” he said. “I have a Georgia football hat that I’ve been wearing for four years that’s pretty grimy, but I just knew I needed some clothes for after the match. I was digging through my bag, and there’s a Georgia shirt,

July 2, 4:55 p.m. The Georgia State Patrol releases the arrest report. In it, Evans admits drinking three Vodka cocktails and tries to bargain his way out of the arrest, stating “I am not trying to bribe you but I’m the athletic director of the University of Georgia.” When first pulled over, Evans had a pair of red panties between his legs. The trooper asked Evans “what her panties were doing in his side of the seat. He stated, ‘She took them off and I held them because I was just trying to get her home.’” The trooper reported Evans was crying uncontrollably while at the station.

Now that Damon Evans is out as the University’s athletic director, the question on everyone’s mind is obvious — who’s next? As with any new opening, many names have been thrown out as suggestions, including the experienced — Greg McGarity and Eric Hyman — and the unlikely — Suzanne Yoculan and Herschel Walker. McGarity was born and raised in Athens, and played tennis under legendary coach Dan Magill before graduating from the University in 1976. From 1978 to 1981, McGarity was the head coach of the women’s tennis team at the University, posting a career mark of 51-44. He currently works as the Executive Senior Associate Director at the University of Florida, where he assists Gators AD Jeremy Foley, supervising both the men’s basketball team and the football team. He interviewed for Georgia’s vacant athletic director position in 2003, but was not a finalist for the job. Hyman, on the other hand, was a finalist when the AD

CRIME NOTEBOOK Most wanted behind bars After more than a month of being on the lam, Austin Michael Norris is back in the Classic City. “He’s currently arrived back at the Clarke County jail,” University Police Chief Jimmy Williamson said. Norris was wanted for several thefts, obstruction and criminal trespassing charges that occurred on campus in April and May. Athens-Clarke County Chief Deputy Sheriff Gene Mays said at first, he thought Norris had “bondable offenses,” but the magistrate judge who saw Norris disagreed. “He did go to bond hearing [July 7] but didn’t receive a bond,” Mays said. Norris was arrested in Meriwether County over the July 4 holiday weekend on a charge of breaking and entering, Meriwether County Sheriff Steve Whitlock said. Whitlock said when Norris’ name was run through the GCIC, it was discovered he had an outstanding warrant in Athens-Clarke County. “They called and told us they wanted him,” Whitlock said. Mays said Norris had a municipal court bench warrant — a warrant issued when a person does not show up for a court date — in addition to the University charges and arrest warrant. He said Norris’ information was entered into GCIC when the warrant was issued. Freshman football player arrested Jordan Love, 19, was arrested at 10:07 p.m. July 5, according to a University Police report. An officer arrived at McWhorter Hall in response to reports of fireworks. While questioning Love and Quintin Williams, who was also present, the officer could not obtain the spelling of Love’s middle name or his date of birth, stated the

report. The officer placed Love under arrest for obstruction of justice and transported him to the Clarke County Jail. University Police Chief Jimmy Williamson stated that a “breakdown of communications” lead to the arrest, which should not have occurred. Love does not commonly go by his middle name, Lawrence, which gave the arresting officer the impression that Love was purposely evading his questions. Williamson said he has never before encountered a person who withheld only his or her middle name, but it could be something to consider in the University Police Department’s future. “I would never be arrogant enough to say we couldn’t learn from this,” Williamson said of the arrest. The only remaining point of contention is whether Love supplied his date of birth before or after his arrest, Williamson said. In a statement released by the Love family’s attorney, William E. Stiles Jr., “Police Chief Williamson and University of Georgia Officials ... are confident that the charges against Jordan will ultimately be dismissed.” As reported by the Atlanta JournalConstitution, a judge ruled to uphold the charge of obstruction on July 7. Grand larceny at Bursar’s Office Therese Hodges reported the theft of more than $500 from a teller’s cash drawer at the University Bursar’s Office on June 29. Two officers responded at 8:30 a.m., at which point Hodges told them the theft likely occurred between the hours of 8 a.m. on June 24 and 12:30 p.m. on June 28. The amount taken exceeded $500, although the report does not specify how much. The report indicated no signs of forced entry. — Compiled by Dallas Duncan and Patrick Hooper

By ZURI McDONALD FOR THE RED & BLACK Service-learning study abroad trips are typically thought of as ways for University students to teach others — but for two graduate students, their trip became not only a teaching tool, but a life lesson for themselves. Rachel Hagues, a Ph.D. student in child and family development, was one of these students. After traveling to Tanzania in May, she can certainly validate the notion that study abroad is a passport to developing an appreciation for other cultures and viewpoints. “Every year I am blown away by what I have learned, and how welcoming the people are makes it truly worthwhile,” Hagues said. Hagues has been travelling to Tanzania since 2008 and plans to return next year to continue community service and to complete her dissertation. In 2009, Hagues returned to Tanzania with partner Hunter Parker, a University graduate student studying theatre and film studies. Hagues and Parker stayed in a small town in Ukerewe, the largest island on Lake Victoria in Tanzania. The island of approximately 150,000 is still an underdeveloped area, having only had electricity since 2005. The island’s primary language is Swahili. The pair’s journey was a continuation of previous trips spawned by a partnership with Gertrude Mongella, the first president of the Pan-African

S Girls participate in “Girl’s Talk,” an initiative to promote leadership started by two University students on a service-learning trip to Tanzania. Parliament. Mongella won the University’s Delta Prize for Global Understanding in 2005. “Mongella didn’t want to keep the award money for herself, but instead used it to establish a program that would encourage students from UGA to partner with her rural village in her hometown of Tanzania,” Hagues said. Hagues and Parker said they hope to have several students who have an interest in service-learning join them next year. One of the initiatives they are working on is referred to as “Girl’s Talk.” “The idea is that what we are doing is for the girls and women leaders,” Parker said. “And while we are, we are not avoiding the boys because, in essence, we have to educate the society.” “Girl’s Talk” allows Tanzanians who seem to have a natural talent in performing arts to express themselves through skits. It is meant to empower the girls — who range between the ages of 9 to 18 — and also encourage them to continue with their education. Hagues said Tanzanian women are treated as subordinates in their country. She said they are often oppressed and sexually harassed by older men, including some who carry HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

“[We are] teaching the girls that they have options and that they don’t have to accept the abuse or the harassment,” Parker said. Tanzanian women don’t have much of a voice in their communities, which is something Parker and Hagues are trying to help them to gain. “We aren’t going in there saying we have all the answers because the solutions need to come from members within their community,” Parker said. She said many of the Tanzanian women usually get pregnant early and are forced to marry and quit school. “The families there want the same things that we want for our children,” Parker said. “That is to grow up happy and healthy and to live a decent life.” While AIDS and malaria are the major health concerns, Tanzanians have healthy diets consisting of fish, fruits and vegetables. They are helping Tanzanians to become more communal through service learning and are hoping for more students and faculty to join them next summer. “It is a life-changing experience,” Parker said. “You go over there with the idea that you want to help them learn, but, in return, you learn. The experience is hard to describe in words. They appear different, but really at the heart of it, we are all the same.”

BRIEFING: Adams seeks outside hire first ¢From Page 1 of integrity and a person of extreme abilities, and I think we will get that person. This is one of the five or six best AD jobs in America, in my opinion, and I can assure you there’s no shortage of interest.” Frank Crumley, the executive associate AD for finance and administration, will temporarily take over the duties left vacant by Evans. Crumley worked his way up in the athletic department since 1991, when he started in promotions and marketing. He serves as chief financial officer for athletics and is responsible for day-to-day operations, contracts, information technology and budget planning and reporting. Crumley earned both a bachelor’s degree in exercise and sports science and a master’s degree in sports administration at the University. When asked what changes he will make as interim AD, he said, “We’re going to continue what we’re doing — focusing on the student-athletes.” Crumley, who was asked to take the position on Sunday, will not be involved in the search for his replacement. “I think having Frank Crumley as the interim is a great idea right

now,” head football coach Mark Richt said. “I don’t see anything that’s going to change in how we do day-to-day business.” Adams asked his search team — much smaller than the 14-person group that replaced Evans’ predecessor, Vince Dooley — “to move expeditiously on this important task.” The search committee will be chaired by David Shipley, the University’s faculty athletic representative and Thomas R.R. Cobb Professor of Law. Other members include Jack Bauerle, the University’s head swimming coach; Carla Williams, senior associate AD, senior woman administrator in the athletic department and four-time Lady Dogs letter winner; Tom Landrum, senior vice president for external affairs; Swann Seiler, a member of the Athletic Association executive board and former president of the University Alumni Association; and Robert “Trey” Sinyard, a cross country athlete and student representative on the Athletic Association board. Adams has not hired an executive search firm, but said he will use one later in the process to vet the names of candidates. When asked if Crumley is in con-

sideration for the permanent post, Adams said, “I think we have three or four people currently on staff who are very, very strong people, but my first look in this case is going to be outside.” Adams also quelled rumors that Williams may replace Evans by saying, “Again, I’m going to look outside first.” Evans settled this week for $237,500 in severance pay, representing three months’ salary and a $100,000 longevity bonus for his six years at the helm of an athletic association that pulled in around $84 million of revenue in 2009. “There’s always some back and forth to try and get any settlement right,” Adams said. “I didn’t think it needed to be too generous, under the circumstances. At the same time, this is a person who’s given us 12 years of his life to make a number of very important contributions.” Adams and the athletic staff continue to look forward and build on the foundation Evans left in place in the department. “I want to acknowledge that one of the many good things that Mr. Evans did was put in place a very strong staff,” Adams said. “I know that they are ready to continue moving forward with much success.”

MAN ON THE STREET: Evans in the doghouse

The University Athletic Department attracted media attention for the wrong reason when Athletic Director Damon Evans resigned from his position following a DUI arrest in Atlanta. Evans, who served as Georgia’s athletic director for six years, had just earned a raise to increase his salary to $550,000 on July 1, a day that dawned minutes after his arrest June 30. Evans was pulled over after he failed to maintain his lane. He refused to take a Breathalyzer test and was sent to the City of Atlanta Pre-trial Detention Center. He was released that same morning. Evans’ passenger, 28-year-old Courtney Fuhrmann of Atlanta, was also arrested for disorderly conduct. According to police reports, Evans attempted to bargain with the Georgia State trooper who pulled over his 2009 BMW, stating, “I am not trying to bribe you, but I am the Athletic Director of the University of Georgia.” In the wake of Evans’ resignation on July 5, The Red & Black asked students for their opinions regarding the now-former athletic director’s actions and departure from the University. — Mitch Blomert COREY BUTLER

Senior microbiology major from Decatur “For former athletes such as myself, we knew the entire family, so it’s a tough situation. It was totally unexpected. Even when it happened, you still needed to get proof. It’s sad because of the great things he’s done for this university.”

NEW: Potential pool of U G A AD candidates varied ¢From Page 1 position was last open seven years ago. In 2005, he was hired at his current job as the AD at the University of South Carolina, and has extensive experience as an AD. He guided Texas Christian University for seven years prior to taking over at South Carolina and led TCU during its transition from the Western Athletic Conference to the Mountain West Conference in July 2005. A candidate from outside of the college sports world is Mark Lewis, the president of Jet Set Sports. The former Bulldog football snapper came in for an interview for the AD job in 2003 when he was General Electric’s vice president of Olympic sponsorships, but was not one of the finalists for the position. Other possibilities that may be in the hunt are two men in Alabama, Dave Hart and Steve Dennis. Hart is the executive director of athletics at the University of Alabama, serving under AD Mal Moore. He served as Florida State’s AD for 12 years — from 1995 to 2007 — and was hired at Alabama in 2008. Southeast of Tuscaloosa lies another possible successor to Evans in Troy University’s Dennis. Dennis, a 1978 University graduate, has been the Trojans AD since 2005. He played under Vince Dooley and was the Bulldogs’ defensive captain and an All-SEC Academic selection during the 1978 campaign. Carla Williams, an assitant athletic director at the University, is another name that has been reported to be in the running for the job. She is on the search com-

mittee for the new AD, but has not acknowledged the reports of her candidacy as being anything other than speculation. “I’ve heard lots of rumors,” she said. “I’m here to serve the University, and that’s my focus. I’m looking forward to serving Dr. Adams and the senior staff in this [search] process.” Bulldogs head football coach Mark Richt is certain whoever Adams and the search committee decide on, he or she will be the right person for the job. “I do have a lot of confidence in President Adams’ ability to hire a new person that will get the job done, and get the job done well,” he said. “I know that Georgia is one of the finest universities in this country, and our athletic program has got to be one of the top five in America ... so I would think it would be a job that a lot of people would be interested in.” Richt shared his opinion on what qualities the new AD should possess, emphasizing his take with a wellplaced football analogy. “[The committee] will find someone who is very confident and very experienced,” he said. “The bottom line is that it’s going to come down to the committee’s and President Adams’ opinion of who can handle the job the best. It’s kind of like when I always talk about what I look for in a quarterback, so to speak. You want a guy that can throw the ball the way you want him to throw it, be a good decision-maker, but there is another thing in there, too ... I need a guy who can handle the pressure of that job, because the quarterback position is a high-pressure job, so I’m sure that will be part of the [committee’s] criteria.”

ERIC ANGEL

Senior history major from Cave Springs “It’s his personal business, but since he’s such a public figurehead and represents the University all the time, he shouldn’t do it. It’s just like if he were the president — it makes the country look bad. He makes the University look bad by getting drunk and having someone that’s not his wife in the car with him.” MARK PETITO

Sophomore international affairs major from San Diego, Ca. “I want whatever is best for UGA. Granted, this gives a lot of bad publicity to the school, but ultimately if his athletic directorship has really impacted the lives of students, then it might have been worth it to keep him.” TIFFANY ELLIS Senior science education major from Jefferson “I think we should have fired him, not given him an opportunity to resign. And who deserves a severance pay? We shouldn’t have to pay him anything.”

Learn to sing before pelvic thrusting

Caught red-pantied M The scene has played out more than a few times in the past decade, but the characters are always changing — men with more money and public recognition than God have slipped up and gotten caught. Some of these men have been my heroes, and realizing that they are human rivaled the disappointment I felt when I found out that Santa was really just my dad. This past weekend, now former University Athletic Director Damon Evans overtook the lead in the role that has been played by the likes of Kobe Bryant and Tiger Woods. Granted, Evans does not have five NBA championship rings adorning his fingers, but in the realm of college athletic directors, he was a superstar. Until this past weekend, he had the keys to the second most profitable athletic department in the nation. He raised the bar in the SEC, proving to be highly successful and revolutionary as its first black Athletic Director. Facelifts to Sanford Stadium, Stegeman Coliseum, Foley Field and Spec Towns Track are all projects that were born under his direction. The man who had the vaunted task of succeeding Vince Dooley as the king of sports at his alma mater could have made the upgrades to stadiums and coaching regimes his legacy. He could have been known for leading the University to sustained relevancy in college athletics. But with the spotlight on him as a leader, he blew it. Instead, he will be known in the hearts of Bulldogs everywhere for a funny mugshot and a pair of red panties. What is his punishment for drinking and driving? He lost his job and every chance of leaving his legacy untainted. At the same time, he got his pockets lined with a $100,000 longevity bonus, as well as three months’ pay on his way out. I understand that fiscal terms must be upheld in contracts. That is half of their purpose. But the other part is to uphold the agreements you sign under. How can the Athletic Association justify paying Damon Evans three months’ salary, when he sloppily broke the clause about upholding “moral turpitude?” Speaking for the editorial board, I do not believe that Damon Evans needs to be reimbursed for being an idiot. This was a major mistake, but he will most likely not have trouble finding work in the future. I think the new Athletic Director, as well as the athletic department as a whole, are more entitled to those funds than Evans and his defense attorney. Go Dawgs. — Wes Blankenship for the editorial board

Love at a distance

I

don’t have faith in many things; I’m not sure if Neil Armstrong landed on the moon or if the police really do protect and serve. But there is one thing that I hold true every day — long distance relationships can and do work. I can’t count on my fingers and toes how many times I’ve heard, “They don’t work” and “How do you know he or she isn’t cheating on you?” No one wants to be optimistic anymore. Yes, I know that you “test the waters” in college, and some students may even find their spouses. But, for me, the waters are too shallow. No one seems to arouse my intellect here. I would like to know why some students — and young adults in general — are not willing to pursue a long-distance relationship, other than perhaps due to the normal insecurities. I understand the challenge, but it’s worth the work. Now, one may be wondering, how does she know this? Well, I am and have been in a long-distance relationship for a while — seven years, to be exact. I was only 13 years old when I met my “hubby,” as I like to call him, and he was only 14. If someone would have asked me back in 2003 if I thought the relationship would make it this

CRISSINDA PONDER far, I would have told them no. He stayed near me for a while, but when he moved to another city, we would only get together two or three times a month. I started out with the nonchalant mind-set and was the biggest flirt. I would tell him in a quick second, “Yeah, I might talk to other dudes.” But now, I’m the biggest sucker for love. Being in a relationship like mine can do that to you. Clearly, my relationship is rare for someone my age, but I would not trade it for all the money in the world. It’s not enough just to have a boyfriend or girlfriend these days — you have to have companionship with your significant other. If I had to give a reason for the success of my longdistance relationship thus far, it would be the fact that we are not in each other’s face all the time. At this age, I still need my space. We’ll get to the good stuff like waking up to each other later. — Crissinda Ponder is a junior from College Park majoring in magazines

iley, we need to talk. I know, I know — you’ve got a busy schedule, what with your half-naked shimmying and all, but hear me out. This is important. You’ve really just got to stop. Stop what? Being you. I was willing to forgive Hannah Montana, which is saying a lot since that stultifying Disney sitcom is the televisual equivalent of watching a 3-yearold attempt stand-up. With props. And sure, okay, that whole, “I’m gonna be a singer like my dad!” was mildly adorable, mostly because you singing is like me running — it just shouldn’t be done in public. Then something utterly unexpected happened. You gave the world “See You Again” and “Party in the U.S.A.” and I began to like you, Miley, with all your throaty warbles, hooky melodies and AutoTuned angsting! Ah, but then you had to go and stop wearing pants. Now, here’s the thing about pants. They should be worn. In lieu of them, shorts or a skirt will do. But pants really are the goal here. I know it may seem unfair; Lady Gaga and Beyoncé don’t rock the pants so often, either. However, they have two things going for them

There’s more to gaming than 3-D graphics

V

ideo games have quickly become a hobby that many youth and adults obsess over. “Next-generation” consoles such as the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 market themselves as being the most realistic on the market, attempting to blur the lines between reality and game. Each consecutive game is trying to outperform its predecessor in terms of visual effects — there is simply no visual comparison between Grand Theft Auto in its early bird’s-eye-view PlayStation days, and newest installment released in 2008 which was meticulously designed to reflect modernday New York City. Way in the corner of the internet, Unbeknownst to most, I found that some online games are truly bringing back the old ways — and they are doing so without even a hint of graphics. That’s right, no visuals at all. Rather than focusing on improved graphics, these textbased games, or MUDs (Multi-User Dungeons), have forgone impressive 3D worlds for good, old-fashioned legitimate story telling. For those of you not familiar with MUDs, they first became truly popular in the late ‘70s and continued on through the ‘80s. These games are usually centered on some familiar setting for

JODY BARBER its players, such as “The Lord of the Rings,” “The Wheel of Time” and “Warcraft.” While these games are somewhat retro, they have been recently making a definite comeback. They are truly unique in many aspects, offering certain game play mechanics that are unheard of in the current video game superpowers. For instance, a MUD drops the player into a world from their favorite show, book, movie or story. They then take on the role of one of the types of characters that is found in that type of domain. For instance, in a “Lord of the Rings” MUD, one option that you could choose to be might be a Dwarf Warrior. From the point of entering the game, you usually will have some type of quest or objective that allows you to become immersed in the world. “But wait … this sounds like any other game,” you might say. Well, in essence, it is similar to modern massively multi online role-playing games that many people play, such as the “World of

Evans should be ashamed This reader is appalled at the current situation involving Damon Evans. Though one is presumed innocent until proven guilty, that doesn’t appear to be the case in this situation. An innocent person doesn’t refuse a Breathalyzer test as that person has no reason to fear the result. When added with the “mug shot,” this is a serious indictment. For those of us who have known innocent people murdered by a drunk driver — whether a family member or a friend — there is simply no tolerance for this type of behavior. Now the question is if we give Evans a second chance? Does a person killed by a drunk driver get a second chance? I think not. This serious lapse of judgment cannot be overlooked. Evans was out on the streets as a potential murderer of innocent people. In addition, by not holding Evans to a higher standard will result in major problems for the future. How can any student-athlete be punished appropriately when the head honcho shows such serious lack of

Warcraft” or “Guild Wars.” What makes it different is its lack of any graphics. MUDs do not have an “end game” strategy. You are essentially a character in a story; a story that has no ending. You are not held by any plot lines or imaging difficulties caused by graphics. The lack of graphics truly benefits the replay value of a MUD. Unlike in current popular MMOs, where it takes many days or even months to make virtually any change to a game, a MUD can be changed by an administrator without disruption game-play and within a few minutes. This is what leads to an unending list of things a player can do. MUDs are also entertainment master pieces with regard to their fighting system. MUDs have the single greatest combat system out of any type of game. Fights will be within melee range usually, like most other games. But once a player runs, it takes some stellar tracking and chasing to continue the fight. This seems to add to the skill that is needed to be a good MUD player, and makes the game that much more fun overall. — Jody Barber is a senior from Dallas majoring in psychology at the University of West Georgia

judgment and gets off with a slap on the wrist? Damon Evans has brought shame not only upon himself, but his family and the University. I am concerned about how this reflects upon the University. Right now, the country is looking at the University to take the appropriate measures. If he stays as Athletic Director, that means the message is, “Do as I say, not as I do.” That is the wrong message to everyone.

VARIETY DOUBLE FEATURE When: July 8 Where: Flicker Theater & Bar More Information: 9 p.m. Price: $5

Unusual movies premiere in Athens By ZURI McDONALD THE RED & BLACK With so many movies available in today’s mainstream market, it’s no wonder the ones which don’t fit conventional standards are often missed out on. For this reason, filmmakers who are unconventional usually travel an underground route to get their messages across. New York filmmaker and former Athens musician Jorge Torres-Torres, with the band Ceramic Dvck, is one of those nontraditional filmmakers. He will appear at Flicker July 8, bringing with him his latest feature films, “FTW” and “Pre-Paradise.” “These films are very important because mainstream doesn’t portray these types of films,” Torres-Torres said. “My films have an underground sentiment. They are pure, sincere and at times can be disturbing.” “Pre-Paradise” and “FTW” are two out of the six feature films TorresTorres completed, and these are personal ones he would like to show. “FTW” is about two misanthropic sociopaths and their miserable wanderings, and “PreParadise” is the story of a self-destructive filmmaker intent on creating the purest independent film. Scenes for “FTW” were shot in Louisiana, Athens, New York and Puerto Rico while “Pre-Paradise” was shot in New York and Puerto Rico. “Some of the challenges are in getting the movie out there,” he said. “Without someone to validate it then it doesn’t count.” Athens is the first place these films will be shown, and then he will travel with them to other states — Louisiana being the next stop. The next step for Torres-Torres is a film called “Flight Check,” which is a documentary about children with violent behavior problems. Torres-Torres, who is Puerto Rican by birth, didn’t go to school to learn about film.His father was a film director but TorresTorres self-taught himself how to edit and shoot by watching movies and experimenting. “When I was very young I watched a film by Werner Herzog named ‘Fitzcarraldo’ and it made a huge impact in the way that I saw films,” TorresTorres said. “Its realism and fiction were perfectly intertwined and I was actually scared as I watched it thinking it was all real.” Torres-Torres’ style as a filmmaker emphasizes realism and aims to entertain as opposed to trying to convey a particular message to his viewers. While he has been in the filmmaking industry for years, it has not been an easy road to travel. “It is a very competitive industry because any one can make a film,” he said. “One must be willing to take the initiative to make their own film opposed to waiting for someone to finance it.”

Mates of State create ‘passion project’ By ZACK TAYLOR THE RED & BLACK

MATES OF STATE

High school garage bands are not the only bands playing cover music these days. Indie duo Mates of State, which consists of husband-and-wife team Kori Gardner and Jason Hammel, released their newest covers album on June 15. The album is entitled “Crushes: The Covers Mixtape,” and is a covers-only ensemble of some of the band’s favorite songs. The name of the album is, like the duo itself, a marriage of ideas. “I wanted to call [it] ‘Crushes’ and Jason liked ‘Covers Mixtape’ so we kind of combined them,” Gardner said. The title of “Crushes” has to do with the duo’s love of the bands’ songs they are covering. “It’s like our band crushes,” Gardner said. According to Gardner, it was something that she and Hammel always wanted to do. This may be the band’s first all-cover album — however, they are not shy to playing covers. “We would work one or two covers into our sets over the years,” Gardner said. Though Gardner said she enjoys every song on the album in its own way, she found there was a surprise favorite.

When: July 12 Where: 40 Watt More Information: Doors open at 8 p.m. Price: $10 in advance “I guess I always have a favorite and then it changes while we make the recording,” Gardner said. “We were really surprised we loved that song ‘Laura’ by the band Girls, but it wasn’t our favorite going in.” Unfortunately, there were a couple songs the band wanted to cover but just couldn’t make them happen. “The [songs] that we couldn’t make our own, or sounded kind of cheesy, we just threw those away,” Gardner said. Gardner said there is a certain pressure in covering songs. “When you do a covers record, you’re not going to pick stinky songs,” she said. “We felt like if it wasn’t good enough, we weren’t going to put it on, so we were very hesitant to try and cover people like Fleetwood Mac.” Expectations aside, this is a passion project according to Gardner. Gardner said she has always been a fan of covers music.

VARIETY & NEWS

now showing

“Avatar: The Last Airbender� Fire Nation should have burned this reel to the ground. With special effects being done by Industrial Light & Magic — the same people who did visual effects for the “Star Wars� films — it seems obvious that the previews for “Avatar: The Last Airbender� would be visually stunning. When I first saw the preview for the film and realized that M. Night Shyamalan was writing, directing and producing his first non-original work, I got excited. Knowing “Avatar� was based on a kid’s television show of the same name, I decided that the movie looked interesting enough to invest my time in watching the show to learn more about it. The show was decent; the movie was not. The show is separated into three different books: water, earth and fire. The movie details the events in Book 1, Water, and if successful is the expected start of a trilogy that will see the series to fruition. The visuals did look promising. With all of the elemental attacks

involved in the fight scenes, it could have made for a unique experience in battle. In reality, the techniques seem more like chi, ki, or energy attacks from any martial arts film. The landscapes were also bland throughout. The locations were supposed to represent four different nations: air, water, earth and fire. The glaciers in the water nation will seem exotic, but the forests in the earth nation looked like the film crew just found somewhere off the side of the road to pull over and shoot. The biggest complaint that can be made against the film is the acting. It is terrible. There has been controversy around the races chosen to represent each nation, but this seems almost inconsequential at this point. Who cares about the actors’ origin when none of them can act? I understand that technically this is a children’s film, but those in charge of casting should still try to bring some depth to the characters’ personalities. To those who have not seen the show this may not be as much of an issue, but the characters also differed in personalities from their animated counterparts. Aang, the main character, is funloving but troubled in the show. In the movie he just seems like a depressed kid in a cloak. A particular pet peeve of mine is the mispronunciation of certain names, but this will not displease those unaware of the alternative pronunciations. Overall, the story progresses too quickly and focuses on inconsequential fight scenes. Verdict: This film was deeply disappointing on all fronts. Underwhelming visually and emotionally, and even though they raised the rating to PG-13 to pander to an older audience, it comes off more childish than the show. — Auryn Baruch

Venue offers singing, poetry By JEN INGLES THE RED & BLACK New experiences abound at New Earth Music Hall’s open mic night where artists from Athens’ disparate communities come together to shine. Mon2 and Buddah — pronounced “bud-ah� — host the open mic nights in order to provide a space for students and townies, poets and musicians, people of all races and backgrounds to share their talents. “We want you to leave seeing or hearing something you’ve never heard before — you know, get you outside of your comfort zone,� Mon2 said. He said performances at New Earth’s open mic nights run the gamut. “Anywhere from love poetry to straight-up ghetto gangsta hip-hop, and everything in between,� he said. Audience members on July 6 were treated to music and spoken word pieces including a beautiful and insightful poem about Africa’s past, present and future; edgy, rhythmic, polemical rants about social ills in America; a bitter R&B lament about love gone wrong; and slyly humorous poems about sex and past

EMILY KAROL | The Red & Black

S All styles of music and spoken word pieces are welcome at the open mic nights. Everyone, including locals and students, has the chance to speak.

OPEN MIC NIGHT What: Spoken word or music When: Tuesdays, sign-up at 8 p.m., starts at 9 p.m. Where: New Earth Music Hall, 227 W. Dougherty St. Price: Free relationships. Mia Smith, a smiley young performer wearing a shiny, oversized belt buckle, delivered a quick and rhythmic poem that made smart use of assonance and other literary devices to create in the listener a feeling of rolling and bouncing along with her words. Smith said she draws inspiration from her personal life, and feels she is fulfilling a purpose by coming to the open mic nights. “I feel like every night I come, there is probably somebody that needs to hear what I have to say,� she said. Billy Lou, an Athens resident, comes to the open mic nights to test out poems he

may include in the book he is working on — “Three Thumbs Up: Children’s Poetry for Adults.� He aptly described his short and wryly funny poems as “Shel Silverstein-esque.� Athens writer and University alum, LIFE, was in attendance on July 6 as well. He has been touring to promote his book of poetry, “Tree of Life.� In his resonant voice, he shared two poems, each influenced by his politics and hopes for the future. For LIFE, the weekly event at New Earth is important because it brings communities together. “A lot of locals don’t even like to come downtown because they feel unwelcome,� he said. LIFE encourages University students to come to the open mic nights. “You got in-school education — or conditioning — and you got a communal sort of education. Coming here adds to that education,� he said.

program, which produces 4,500 meals a day to homeless agencies, the Campus Kitchens project goes beyond simply preparing food. “A lot of students go to college and don’t really interact with the community. They live in a little bubble,� said Jasmine Touton, social media coordinator for Campus Kitchens national. “Campus Kitchens allows students to see that their adoptive community needs their help. They learn how they can make an impact.� Beyond its community impact, Campus Kitchens also provides students with the tools and experience to start and run a mini non-profit. Himmelheber, who followed DC Central Kitchen from its inception and is interested in the food distribution movement, said she hopes to

establish a Campus Kitchen at the University. The Campus Kitchen project at the University would partner with an already existent food rescue program called Full Plate. “Full Plate doesn’t have a kitchen, staff or volunteers,� Himmelheber said. “We need to build that alliance if it’s going to be effective at UGA.� In the past semester, Campus Kitchen advocates obtained 400 signatures of support and a network of volunteers, and are now working on completing a feasibility study before obtaining a grant from Campus Kitchens headquarters to start the program. The feasibility study involves intensive research into finding a kitchen space for volunteers to prepare the meals, trans-

Walk-on no more: Redshirt earns scholarship By JAMIE McDONOUGH THE RED & BLACK Most players who walk onto a Division I college football team spend four years trying to earn a mere few seconds of playing time on the field. Outside linebacker walk-on Reuben Faloughi received more than he bargained for when he was awarded a full scholarship at last semester’s spring banquet. “Wow, I think I cried,� said Faloughi, a rising second-year student at the University. “When Coach [Mark] Richt named me the defensive walk-on player of the spring season, he went on to say that I was not a walk-on anymore. It was both a great feeling and a blessing.� Faloughi said he was shocked at the fact he was no longer a

walk-on. “I was happier for my dad,� Faloughi said. “He paid for my tuition. So, it was a great blessing for him, too.� Faloughi became a role model to many high school football players the day he received the scholarship. “I do think I am a role model,� Faloughi said. “I didn’t think I would get a scholarship this year. I think my situation proves that nobody can tell you what to do. Anything is possible when you believe in yourself.� Although he is no longer a walk-on, Faloughi does not see himself being any more important than the rest of the team. “I wouldn’t say I am a bigger part of the team because of my scholarship,� he said. “Walk-ons are a huge part of the team.

They do a lot of work. People just don’t see it on game day.� Standing at an intimidating 6-foot-5 inches and 240 pounds, Faloughi has played football since the eighth grade. “There are many great life lessons that football teaches you,� he said. “Never give up and never give in. You really have to push yourself to win.� Born and raised in FALOUGHI A u g u s t a , Faloughi is a first-generation American in his family. Both of Faloughi’s parents are originally from Nigeria. “My parents being Nigerian

has taught me great work ethics,� Faloughi said. “Both of my parents are hard workers, and they inspire me to achieve my goals.� Along with the Nigerian work ethic his parents instilled in him, Faloughi dedicated his success to many others in his life. “I am very close with my teammates, especially the linebackers,� he said. “Coach Richt is inspiring. He helps everyone grow physically, mentally and spiritually. He is a very good role model. But, if I had to pick one thing that has contributed most to my success, it would be my relationship with God.� After graduating from Evans High School in 2009, Faloughi decided he wanted to try to walk on to the University football team. “I did not want to live with

the what-ifs,� Faloughi said. “I wanted to play for a big school. So, I figured I would give it a try.� Faloughi enters the upcoming season as a redshirt freshman. “I play behind some good linebackers,� he said. “I do think we’ll have a successful year, though. We have great coaches and players, and I believe we will have a great season.� Besides football, Faloughi said he enjoys networking around Athens. “I love meeting new people and helping others,� he said. “That’s why I am a psychology major.� In the future, Faloughi said he hopes to pursue a job in the clinical psychology field. “You can do anything you put your heart into,� Faloughi said.

Bulldog trio turn buccaneer By ROBERT INSKIP THE RED & BLACK The college baseball season may end in June, but for Georgia’s Ben Cornwell, Craig Gullickson and Gray Griffith, the games don’t stop. The three members of the Georgia baseball team are spending their summer with the Athens Pirates of the Great South League. “The talent level of the SEC is better, but there are good quality players in this league,� said Gullickson, a rising senior from Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.. All three players on the Pirates are pitchers, with Gullickson being the lone left-hander among them. While most of their Pirates teammates stay with host families, the Pirates from the University are able to maintain the same living arrangements they keep during the normal school year. Gullickson and Cornwell room together off-campus. “It was one of my old teammates who told me about the Pirates,� said Cornwell, a redshirt junior

ISNER: Ready for rest of season ¢From Page 1 one of my favorite ones, so I just threw it on.â€? With his awe-inspiring Wimbledon match behind him, Isner’s focus now turns to the rest of the tennis season, played on hardcourts in North America, which he calls his favorite part of the year. He said he plans to play in tournaments in Atlanta, Washington D.C., Toronto and Cincinnati before the crown jewel of the hard court season, the U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows, N.Y., begins Aug. 30. “The goal is to be peaking when Flushing Meadows rolls around, and I know I have a good schedule coming up,â€? Isner said. “If I can get some matches under my belt, I can be a threat at the U.S. Open.â€? Though every player who shows up on the grounds of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club wants to take home the Wimbledon championship, Isner’s starring role in one of the most storied matches in tennis history wasn’t a bad consolation prize. “It’s pretty cool, because no one is going to be able to take this match away from Nicolas [Mahut] and I,â€? he said. “It’s going to most likely stand the test of time, and it’s something that is going to be talked about for a long time.â€? However, Isner intends to make sure his incredible Wimbledon match is not the only thing that defines his tennis career. “This story caught on with everybody, not just tennis fans,â€? he said. “A lot of people know who I am now, which is great, but now it’s up to me to make a name for myself besides this match, and I know I can do that.â€?
