New directors begin duties in renamed judicial office
Vol. 118, No. 50 | Athens, Georgia
By TIFFANY STEVENS THE RED & BLACK In the wake of the University’s induction of a new dean of students, the Office of Judicial Programs has also been experiencing administrative changes. The University’s Office of Judicial Programs was renamed the Office of Student Conduct on Oct. 4, said Eric Atkinson, associate dean of students. Atkinson said officials began considering the name change after staff members in the department requested it during the 2010 spring semester. “The change comes about from changes in the field, shifting the emphasis from enforcing rules to upholding standard conduct,” he said. “It’s more in line with national trends. Offices are moving away from judicial and more towards student conduct in the names of the departments.” Leadership within the Office of Student Conduct has also undergone change. Kim Ellis, former associate dean of students who now works for University housing, and Brandon Frye, former assistant dean of students, have been replaced with Amanda Patterson and Beau Seagraves, both formerly of the Office of Student Affairs. Though officials plan for Seagraves to remain assistant director of student conduct, Patterson will serve only as a temporary director, Atkinson said. “Amanda will provide leadership for the office as we move forward in our search for a permanent director,” Atkinson said. “We’re in the beginning stages. We’ve not even posted the position yet.” Atkinson said Patterson and Seagraves will most likely consider revisions to student conduct later in the year, but was unaware of any specific

Twitter user hides cash rewards for followers in Athens
By NICK PARKER THE RED AND BLACK
By SARAH GIARRATANA THE RED & BLACK Meagen Bennett walked down the stairs of the University’s LeConte Hall last week and asked a man wearing a blue shirt for $20. After asking her to perform 20 jumping jacks, which she did, the man handed her cash. Unfortunately, even if other students bust out their jumping jacks, bystanders will probably not break out their wallets as fast as they might break out their camera phones. But Bennett and more than 400 other Twitter followers stand a chance of winning more cash, all by following a person or group of people posting under the Twitter name, “Anonym_us.” On Twitter, posts appear on that timeline disclosing a location or act to be performed around Athens. The first person to arrive at that location or to perform the act receives a cash reward. Freshman Ben Hooper, a three-time winner, responded to a post on Oct. 8 that stated, “$45 to the first person to ask the guy in the white polo in front of Legion Pool if he likes Blazing Saddles, gets it.” Hooper won, became hooked and started having the tweets from this anonymous source sent to his phone. “The $45 was the easiest time, because he was doing it right outside my residence hall,” Hooper said. “It’s just a cool way to win some free money. I’ve heard from another person who’s doing it that it’s from a rich alumni and this is his way of giving out a scholarship.” The person or group, when contacted through e-mail, refused to disclose their name or reasons behind giving away cash at the University. After giving away nearly $100 dollars a week, according the “Anonym_us” Twitter account, students don’t care about why there is free money being handed out — they just want to know how to get it, Hooper said. “I don’t care why he’s doing it as long as I can get some money,” Bennett said. “I thought it was See POSTS, Page 5

Dogs playing up to preseason expectations T Z his was how things should have gone all along. The pieces are all in place, the cylinders are all clicking. Georgia football is finally living up to expectations, if only three or four losses later than supporters imagined. Now, another dominant victory over an SEC opponent has left a once-unlikely question lingering: Is Georgia the best team in the SEC East? Georgia’s 44-31 handling of the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday certainly has the question of which

It had been a season to forget for Washaun Ealey. Costly cough-ups in the red zone during two of Georgia’s losses, a onegame suspension and injuries had defined his 2010 season. He even seemed to be pressing, struggling to find that same Ealey of late last season — the one who torched Georgia Tech to end the regular season and appeared to be next in Georgia’s long line of elite running backs. Ealey looked like that back Saturday night, setting a school record with five rushing touchdowns and running for 157 yards on 28 carries in Saturday’s 44-31 win over Kentucky. “I really wasn’t playing as well in the first half of the season. I made a couple of turnovers that cost the team, and I kind of lost trust in the team and the coaches,” Ealey said. “Now, I’m just out there trying to play every down to gain

Research shows drinking doubles when abroad By DEANNA MITCHELL FOR THE RED & BLACK Oh, the endless appeals of studying abroad: new cultures, enlightening experiences, hands-on courses — and drinking. A recent study by the University of Washington claims alcohol consumption by college students doubles while studying abroad. “There is definitely a cultural difference in drinking habits,” said Uttiyo Raychaudhuri, associate director of Studies Abroad in the South Pacific. “Australian young adults, who are familiar with alcohol at a younger age, are more tuned to want to go surfing, not drink.” But student experiences may vary depending on the program. “We worked in elementary schools and stayed with host families, so we didn’t drink as much as if we weren’t with a family and weren’t around children,” said senior Abby Alexander, who studied in Italy this past summer. However, junior Chris Beless had a different, more independent experience while studying in Australia. “We went out whenever possible,” he said. “I guess it was mostly binging, but nothing irresponsible.” But don’t assume all of the drinking is done at the bars and clubs. Students say they often enjoyed the simple luxury of having a glass of wine with dinner. “The professor agreed a glass of wine with

the families was okay,” Alexander said. “It’s a part of the experience.” Age may also be a factor, as younger study abroad participants are often more eager to experience the nightlife in a new community. “I can go on the town and drink [abroad] as opposed to Athens where it’s risky if you’re not of age,” Beless said. Researchers involved in the study proposed colleges enact strict policies preventing excessive drinking habits from happening abroad. But some participants think such measures aren’t necessary. “I think it’s fine the way it is,” Beless said. “The professors are pretty nonchalant as long as you don’t get in trouble or give the University a bad name.” Raychaudhuri said study abroad professors understand students will inherently be students. “We know students have certain expectations and will drink,” Raychaudhuri said. “My job isn’t to say, ‘Don’t drink.’ It’s to expose the bigger picture and present lifechanging opportunities and experiences.” And the University does have a zeroalcohol policy. “No alcohol is permitted in [living commons] or during program hours,” Raychaudhuri said. Regardless of students’ incentives for drinking abroad, one thing is for sure. “We were just trying to have a fun time,” Beless said.

Snyder, 18, and Molly Alexandra Smith, 18, were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and drug related objects at 2390 South Lumpkin St. on Saturday at 2:12 a.m. They were discovered after someone reported a suspicious vehicle driving around the area, according to the report. When officers found marijuana and pipes in the glove compartment of the offenders’ car, the students reportedly told police they bought it from a male known to the students at the Kappa Sigma fraternity house on Wednesday at 11 p.m. The male who alledgedly sold the marijuana to the females is listed as a University student and as living in the Kappa Sigma fraternity house, according to the University online directory.

Student breaks window, gets arrested A University law student received a behindthe-scenes look at the legal system when he was arrested after throwing a bottle through a window at Magnolias Bar on Sunday, according to an Athens-Clarke County Police report Stephen Robert Faivre, who is listed in the University online directory as a student assistant for the University’s School of Law, was arrested and charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct and criminal trespass at 3:53 a.m., according to the report.
The arrest came after officers responded to a fight inside Magnolias. Upon arrival, the officers were told by a bar manager that Faivre was seen throwing a bottle in an upstairs room by two employees, and a window had been broken, according to the report. When the employees tried to remove Faivre from the bar, he reportedly became “verbally assaultive and then physical.” Police also noted Faivre had a hard time walking, slow speech, bloodshot eyes and a strong smell of alcohol. He was then placed under arrest for public intoxication, disorderly conduct and criminal trespass to property, and was transported to Clarke County Jail. — Compiled by Jacob Demmitt

Graduate’s mission saves lives Work brings relief abroad By MICHAEL PROCHASKA THE RED & BLACK University alumnus Matt Turner has saved hundreds of lives. He’s not a doctor or nurse or paramedic. Instead, he purifies water and is leading a new movement in nonprofits. Turner co-founded Defy Thirst, a nonprofit keen on rescuing communities from malnutrition in Ghana, Haiti and Ecuador. What began as a charity to implement water filtration systems in developing countries has flourished into a philanthropy so ambitious Turner has mapped out his life plans. “We commit 20 years to every community that we work in,” Turner said. “When you go to a developing country and you meet a 3-year-old kid that doesn’t have parents, lives on the street in the rain, picks up leftover scraps and has to fight with goats and chickens for it to eat — you know you make a difference in his survival.” Defy Thirst purifies drinking water, making it safe, cheap and available to natives in developing countries. Since its founding, the mission has expanded to include seven divisions of relief, including emergency refuge, economic development, children’s education and environmental improvement. Turner fights against foreign deficiencies and apathy toward communities that are particularly in need. The umbrella organization became known as Defiant Missions. “I think the most powerful things you’re going to see when you go into these settings are kids,” Turner said. “Kids everywhere the world over are the same. They all smile. They all have hope. They all want to hold your hand. All they want is to be loved.” Soccer games with children have been one of Turner’s fondest memories from his time spent working in Haiti. “With sports, it can bridge so many gaps and build friendships and it means a lot to kids for you to come to their home and be willing to engage them there,” he said. Turner said sports can provide an alternative to gang violence, drugs and other crime. “We can’t get them the education they really need, but we can spend time with them working on their life goals and teaching them that they do have something to hope for,” he said. “The phrase ‘making a difference’ has kind of been tossed around so much that it doesn’t really have that much meaning anymore, but I really feel like I’m making a difference, and for our donors, I’m being the tool for them making a difference.” Defiant Missions’ goals go beyond a single and timely mission. Some of its achievements in Deuxieme Plaine, Haiti thus far include building two homes, establishing medical clinics, providing eight water filters and launching four youth soccer teams. What Turner and Defiant Missions co -founder Stephen Dupuis call “The To t al Community Intervention Concept,” Haiti native Fritznel Elvéus calls a godsend. “I think this is so great of [Turner]. He decided to do something that many of the people there haven’t been doing,” Elvéus said. “We thank God for the blessing.” Elvéus, who moved to the United States several years ago to be with his wife Monica — a missionary he met while living in Haiti — said the reconstruction in Haiti is still not visible enough. “Nothing changed to me,” he said, referring to the two times he visited Haiti since the earthquake. “As far as construction, it’s like the earthquake just happened. Even before the earthquake, we had nothing. We never had running water or electricity.” The need for a stable, long-term project in Haiti is dire, Elvéus said. Defiant Missions has vowed to stay involved in Deuxieme Plaine for as long as two more decades,
with plans to build the community’s first formal school and community center. The population of Deuxieme Plaine is 8,000. Dupuis, a graduate of Valdosta State University, said his last trip to Haiti made him want to work harder. His friendship with Turner is rooted in the same passion. The, two met at a Christian summer camp while still in college — both idealists, both admittedly naïve about saving the world. “When he’d take off [work], I’d take off too and we would just talk about our dreams and goals and ambitions,” Dupuis said. A year later, the graduates started a water and sanitation system funded by various investments in small businesses. Little did they know, one of the businesses, a photography company, would assist in Defy Thirst’s mis-

Though Turner declined being identified as an anthropologist, journal entries, photography and cultural research is integral to each of their missions abroad. “We show people where their money is going,” Turner said. “One of our main things is to make sure people get bang for their buck. We want people to feel like they are the ones doing this and we’re kind of just the instrument to accomplish that for them.” However, Turner realized with broader goals comes more responsibility.
And more responsibility requires money for the project. Turner and Dupuis went skydiving Thursday to raise money for their work. The dare was posed by a donor that posted on Defiant Challenge, an initiative in which Turner and Dupuis complete tasks in exchange for financial contributions. “We’re staying away from illegal things,” Turner said. “But we’re willing to do just about anything.” The two say they plan to walk on coals and endure the pain of being tasered in the near future, but ask fans to steer clear from asking them to digest insects. “One of our slogans is ‘expect more out of life,’” Turner said. “A lot of people get caught up in the rat race, in particularly right after you graduate from college, and we’re fortunate enough to not be in that hole.”

Useless changes hurt University A
great commercial can make the most boring TV show worth watching. A bad commercial can ruin the moment. Though we may watch our TV shows online or on DVR, we cannot ignore the power commercials and marketing hold over our daily lives. In simple terms, there are two basic components to marketing: a product and its promotion. If a company realizes product sales do not meet their goals, they either change the product or change the way it is promoted. So what if we took a step back and truly asked ourselves some questions about the University: Why did we attend? Why did we “buy” it? Take a poll of the students and you’re bound to get hundreds of different answers, each a testament to the diversity of students and opportunities on our campus. But within the sum of answers there lies a catch: The University is in a state of identity crisis. We’ve added so many bells and whistles recently that oftentimes we cannot recognize ourselves. President Adams’ push to create an engineering program on campus struck me as another harebrained idea to add more “stuff” to our institution. Why compete for scarce state funds with a top five engineering school located 65 miles to our west? So, what is the University? What should it be? The core of the University should never change: we combine the best of liberal arts and applied sciences. We are one of the nation’s leaders in applied scientific research in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. We offer the best liberal arts education through the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication and the Terry College of Business. I’ll stack those 1-3 hitters against anyone in the country. We need to start focus-
ing on the key things at which we succeed, not the dozens of things we do “well.” We cannot be all things to all people, and the sooner we realize that, the better our University will be. My high school principal used to end his afternoon announcements with “Thank you for making us the best school anywhere.” After the first month, we rolled our eyes. After two months, we wished he would stop. But after the year was over, we found it was true — and were even proud to say it. Our president drives his strategy for the University’s present and future based on his publicly posted list of “peer and aspirational institutions” — schools he considers as good or better than our University. My first two years here, I was impressed he had the guts to set these benchmarks. My second two, I wondered why these schools were chosen. But now I can’t help but ask why he doesn’t work for one of the schools he so desperately wishes we were a carbon copy of. I like my high school principal’s approach. For me, for you, for the people of Georgia, this University is the best school anywhere. Sure, there’s room for improvement — but based on pride, not imitation. Let’s make strides based upon core assets, not pipe-dreams. The sooner we recognize that and build around our strengths, the sooner the University will grow into the skin she has worked 225 years to inherit. “Hail to Georgia down in Dixie... She’s the fairest in the southland...” or anywhere else, for that matter. — Ward Black is a grad student from Commerce majoring in agriculture and applied economics
E-mail and letters from our readers
David Mitchell, in his column (“Rules needed to prevent injuries,” Oct. 21) proclaims that Georgia football has been lucky (in avoiding serious injury). Perhaps Mr. Mitchell needs to be reminded of Richard Vonalbade “Von” Gammon who tragically died from a head injury sustained in a game against Virginia in 1897. His death produced outcries that football be outlawed. Von Gammon’s mother plead to the governor that “my boy’s death should not be used to defeat the most cherished object of his life.” I applaud Mr. Mitchell’s concern for our football
players, but disagree with his assertion that most fans’ first reaction is football-related. In my experience, most fans are concerned primarily with the welfare of the player. In the words of Von Gammon, “A Georgia man never quits.” RYAN BLEDSOE Grad student, Suwanee Law

NPR’s Williams spreads ignorance W
e have all heard it. Muslims did this. Islam is the cause for that. Enough is enough. With the recent firing Wednesday night of Juan Williams at NPR for comments he made on “The O’Reilly Factor,” this persecution of Muslims must stop. Williams said he had to do a “double take” whenever Muslims flew on an airplane with him because they made him feel uneasy. Williams is a black man, and in the political arena he is considered very liberal. This makes his comments far more damaging because he knows the struggle that black people endured in this country. And yet, he stooped to the same level as former white oppressors by condemning an entire group of people. As students, we all have heard from our parents, friends and others that we should be sensitive to another person’s views. That is old news. Yet, it seems that with the issue of Muslims and Islam in America,

KELBY LAMAR people keep putting their foot in their mouth. Some people will argue, and I anticipate Williams will as well, that what he said should have been protected under the First Amendment. I ask why? He essentially said whenever he sees a Muslim on an airplane he feels uneasy. That is no different than a white woman saying she feels uneasy walking down the street whenever she sees a black man. In both instances, fear is spread through stereotypes and misinformation. Both are ignorant attitudes that categorize an entire group of people based on the actions of a few. Williams will undoubtedly go on countless talk shows defending what he said, and perhaps even declare NPR should be shut down
for censoring him. I couldn’t disagree more. I am not in favor of censorship, but when someone says offensive things and yet has no sense of accountability or remorse, they must be reprimanded. I’m not one to say whether Williams should have lost his job or not. That was for NPR to decide as a business decision. However, I can say with conviction that he needed to receive some kind of punishment for his words because his attitude toward Muslims was frankly frightening. I am not a Muslim, but I can appreciate the pain they must endure every time an episode like this takes place. It has truly gotten ridiculous. As students we should learn from the mistakes of others and do our best to meet this ignorance head on with knowledge and facts. Hopefully, we can put an end to this foolishness once and for all. — Kelby Lamar is a senior from Americus majoring in newspapers and political science

he film “We are Marshall” has created what is perhaps one of the most annoying fads to come out of Hollywood since a shirtless Matthew McConaughey. Thanks to this movie about the real-life plane crash that killed the Marshall University football team, it is perfectly commonplace to accentuate anything by saying, “ We are [Insert Organization Here]!” We take a little phrase from a movie that inspires us and turn it into a trope that does nothing more than tell everyone who we are. Still, there is an idea there that is something special. The idea that a University such as Marshall could bind together in spite of tragedy is one that should speak to us all. The students and faculty at Marshall knew who they were, and they came together because of that. So we ask ourselves, are we really Georgia? Can we really say we belong to one unified body?

ADAM WYNN student organizations can no longer have the ability to use the symbol of the state and the University, one that underclassmen hopelessly fear walking under without strict guidelines. Yes, student organizations, as of this December, will no longer be allowed to use the Arch in their official logos. The University’s official policy states that their logos may be used to declare a relationship with the University, but must not imply ownership or direct affiliation. In other words, just because my opinion is posted in today’s issue of The Red & Black, you shouldn’t assume the actual institution of The Red & Black agrees with my opinion. In order to keep this from happening, the administration decided that we can no longer use the Arch in any modified version. That’s right. No more

fancy, stylized arches or creatively putting different items or images together to form the Arch. You can’t do it, or they’ll bust you. This all likely stems from the student group UGA NORML — the National Organization for the Reformation of Marijuana Laws — abusing the usage of University symbols a few semesters back. UGA NORML proposed having a certain herbal supplement added to the list of legally acceptable narcotics. Because the University does not wish to associate with UGA NORML, honest student organizations can no longer use their pre-approved insignias that have become synonymous with that group of students. Are we Georgia? Despite the fact the Arch is actually a symbol belonging to the greater state government of Georgia — à la our state seal — what makes the administration think they have the right to declare ownership of a symbol that should belong to the students and individuals of this institution? Are we not the ones
who walk under it on graduation day? Are we not the ones who dreamt of the Arch long before even attending Georgia? Are we not the ones who love this symbol that forms the mythos of the University mystique we cherish? Are we not Georgia? I respect the University for wanting to protect the integrity of such an important symbol — but symbols belong to the people. They belong to the students, and if the students want to use them in an honest manner, who are they to say no? If we are part of a body of students who love this state, this University and this symbol, then we deserve the right to represent that identity how we best see fit. If the University wants us to declare that we are Georgia, then they need to figure out how to let us. We are Georgia, whether they let us be or not. — Adam Wynn is a senior from Dacula majoring in English and a page designer for The Red & Black

NEWS & VARIETY
“HEREAFTER” A solemn and slow march to the credits, “Hereafter” is a straightforward look at something unseen: the afterlife. Helped by Clint Eastwood’s no-frills direction, Peter Morgan’s (“Frost/Nixon”) screenplay of three characters — an American factory worker, a poor London boy and a French journalist — is neither heartwarming nor profound. Instead, in today’s world of sugarcoating fear, it is a testament to the idea that the unknown be neither frightening nor non-existent, just accepted for what it is. Of all the characters, Matt Damon’s George Lonegan has the hardest time accepting. Psychic by way of a botched childhood neurological surgery, Lonegan is a hyper-sensitive medium who lives alone in a sad little apartment in San Francisco. He is resistant to the idea of helping people with his gift, much to the dismay of his brother Billy, playfully portrayed by Jay Mohr. Lonegan’s attempts at intimacy — rather, his avoidance of such — push him farther into himself and his problems. He sees his self-ostracism as martyrdom. A sort of self-righteous ‘Woe is me’ attitude. Boo hoo. Cécile de France is introduced to American audiences as Marie
LeLay, a French journalist whose near death experience during a tsunami drives her out of a job and into a pursuit of enlightenment. The most stable of the three story-arcs, LeLay’s character is inspired by her experiences and impatient with the outside world’s inability to accept them. For LeLay, clouds and rainbows and a fatherlike god may be more reassuring when caught 10 feet underwater in a tsunami or trapped within a burning underground train, but such falsehoods are indeed outmatched by a quiet, plain and true afterlife. The third and best storyline follows young Marcus, played by twins George and Frankie McLaren, after the brutal death of his twin brother, Jason. Taken into child protective services after Jason’s death, and away from his drug-riddled mother — played by Lyndsey Marshal who more or less reprises her turn as Cleopatra on “Rome,” though the 21st century version — Marcus actively pursues his brother, and by so doing meets with psychics, scientists and clerics, all in vain. The three storylines meet up at a book fair — appropriate, if only because books demand the visualization of the unseen, like death or any other intangible state of being. The argument put forth by “Hereafter” is quite straightforward: The afterlife exists. The question isn’t if something is there, metaphysically speaking, but rather what it is; the answer is not exactly exciting, it’s just plain and honest. Verdict: More or less the film will leave you wondering why you’re here after it’s done. Save this flick for your Netflix que. — Elaine Kelch

Fraternity hosts church service By EMILY GRANT FOR THE RED & BLACK Forget keg parties — this fraternity is drunk with religious fervor. Today, Beta Upsilon Chi, the University’s Christian fraternity, is hosting “Greek Light,” a worship service designed to give students a chance to pray for Greek life at the Chapel on North Campus “I’m blown away by the amount of people stoked for the Lord,” said Hunter Chapman, a junior from Atlanta who spoke at a previous Greek Light. “It’s very reassuring to see what the Lord is doing through
Greek life.” The service will open with a band performing worship songs followed by talks from Homecoming King Trey Sinyard and Homecoming Queen Madison Asef. Justin Ely, a junior from Alpharetta majoring in business marketing, is the Chaplain of BYX. Ely will give a speech titled “Pave the Way” before closing out the service with a prayer for those in the Greek system. “Our hope with Greek Light is to let Christians in the Greek system know that they are not alone,” Ely said.
GREEK LIGHT When: Tonight at 9 Where: Chapel More Information: The pservice will feature music and testimonies, and close with prayer for Greek Life Greek Light is a biannual event hosted by BYX, and its mission is to give students on campus a chance to gather in worship and prayer for Greek life. “I think it’s difficult and maybe a bit awkward for people in sororities and fraternities to talk about

Other posts reference Reed Quad, The Bad Manor downtown, the Myers bus stop, Legion Pool and Ag Hill. “I’m a little skeptical because it’s just so random, and I’ve never heard of someone doing this before,” said Hannah Couch, a sophomore from Statesboro. “At the same time, I’m totally willing to do this for free money. I guess I’m just on for the ride.” As word spreads across the
sketchy packages, it’s just asking us to do silly things in well-lit or crowded locations.” Most of the posts from the “Anonym_us” Twitter account refer to locations on campus or at concerts. For example, a post from Oct. 12 reads, “Give the guy in the white t in front of the bookstore a double high 5 for $20”
If Danny Elfman had a baby with Norah Jones and made it swallow a horn section and a piano, you might — maybe — have the sound of Jane Lui on her “Goodnight Company.” A prismatic album, equally at ease and at play with the sound of itself, “Company” is, on first listen, disconcerting: the music has both

more versatility and sonic shimmer than you’d expect — Lui looks, everso-slightly, like an Asian Ingrid Michaelson, but her work is lighter, more ethereal and less handclap-y. Lyrically, the work done here falls somewhere between the pedestrian and poetic, nearly too reliant on yearning and rue — but the melodies have range aplenty. The album opens with the title track, Lui’s vocal almost-trembling, backed by an infectious la-la-la chorus that breaks down into hooting horns and the sound of schoolchildren. And then she’s off, with an invitation for us to follow. A second later, she’s smoky with a diva-dancebent (“Jailcard”), singing about a man she can’t get off her mind, then doing her best on a cover of Rogers & Hammerstein’s “Edelweiss” that lulls and swoons. She does old-timey torch (“Perished,”) Feist-y pianobased tracks (“Southern Winds”) and slinky, Elfman-drenched tunes (“Take Me For Now”).

University through fliers and word of mouth, the “Anonym_us” Twitter account continues to gather followers. According to a post on Sept. 21, the money will continue “all year.” “I hope to win more and if he’s doing it all year, I’m going to stalk him,” Bennett said. “If I could meet him, the first thing I’d ask him is how much money he has on him… then I would thank him.

being a Christian,” said Brooke Butler, a sophomore from Atlanta majoring in romance languages. Butler is in the Christian sorority Sigma Alpha Omega and has been helping to spread the word about Greek Light to members of the Greek community. “We want them to be refreshed and be excited for the plans that God has for them,” she said. Greek Light was held for the first time last spring and about 150 students attended. Though it is geared toward students in the Greek system, the service is open to everyone.
By itself, the range is commendable (does she cook, too?); together with the flexibly open-eared aesthetic, it’s more than that: it’s positively joyful. Fingers snap, tambourines shake and Lui plows right along — melding tones assuredly. Plus, she writes a mean hook. Is “Goodnight Company” great? It’s accessible, and devilishly easy to get lost in, but there are the few (and rare) weak numbers: “New Jersey,” whose insistent tempo is at odds with its metaphysical lament; and “Long Ago,” whose strong vocal is built atop an inelegant rhythm. But what’s greatness, and who cares? Lui does better than perfection with her collection: she’s fascinating instead. All the homemade orchestral flourishing grows, ever-soslightly wearying — but the work it foregrounds isn’t, both intriguing and content to ever-shift. Hers is good “Company” indeed. — Adam Carlson

INSTANT REPLAY GAME REWIND PLAYER OF THE GAME: Washaun Ealey The Georgia running game has struggled to finish drives, beleaguered by fumbles near the goal line throughout the year. No running back has received more criticism in fumbling the ball than Ealey, but the sophomore was able to hang on for five touchdown runs in the game. His collection of five scores set the singlegame record for rushing touchdowns for the Bulldogs — not bad company there.
BEST: Georgia may be best in division ¢ From Page 1 Wildcats, completing 9-of-12 passes to keep the defense from loading eight defenders in the box. All that has happened in the past three weeks has represented what was supposed to define the 2010 season. And all that has happened in the past three weeks has conjured up the possibility that the Georgia Bulldogs are the best team around. Were this a normal year in the SEC East, this would be a meaningless question — one proposed by Georgia pundits with nothing better to discuss about their disappointing season. A 4-4 record, no matter the recent quality of play, would generally bury any team in such an elite division of college football. But 2010 has not been a normal year. This 4-4 record is different. Reaching .500 has the Bulldogs hoping and dreaming. And honestly, why not? South Carolina, who once held a commanding lead in the division, has fallen into its traditional late-season tailspin after a loss to Kentucky and outlasting an under-
whelming Vanderbilt squad. Georgia would still need South Carolina to lose two more SEC games to have an opportunity at the title game, but with the Gamecocks’ upcoming games against Arkansas, Tennessee and Florida, never say never. As for the Gainesville, Fla., bunch, times are looking bleak for the 2010 season. Losses to Alabama, LSU and Mississippi State have the Gators reeling in one of their worst starts under Urban Meyer, and their 2-3 record in the conference has Georgia’s season looking more and more respectable.

EALEY: Team places faith in runner ¢ From Page 1 trust back in my teammates and my coaches.” After his second-consecutive 100-yard outing, it’s probably safe to say that trust is back. “He ran very hard. He ran downhill,” head coach Mark Richt said. How’d he regain that trust? “Just running hard, protecting the ball and making plays,” Ealey said. What Ealey’s emergence has done for the Georgia offense is undeniable. Georgia has posted three consecutive weeks of 40 points or more since finding the missing component of what has become an explosive offense. The offensive line, with the improved depth provided by Trinton Sturdivant and Kenarious Gates as they’ve worked themselves into the rotation, looks to finally be living up to preseason expectations. Same goes for the tight ends, whose numbers have improved with A.J. Green’s return. Aaron Murray, the offense’s lone question mark during preseason, has produced above and beyond anyone’s expectations for a redshirt freshman and looks like the type of quarterback that will make the Georgia offense formidable for the foreseeable future.
WES BLANKENSHIP | The Red & Black
S Washaun Ealey (3) rebounded from a rocky start to his season to amass 157 yards on the ground and helped put Georgia back into SEC contention. Throw in a capable rushing attack, further improving the play-action game, and defensive coordinators now have to pick their poison against the Georgia offense. “I hope they put eight in the box to free me up a little bit,” Green joked. “But it just feels like we’re coming into our own now. Like I said from day one, we’re going to be the type of team that gets better each day.” But Georgia’s running game struggled all season until a breakout 232-yard team rushing performance against Vanderbilt. The running game had struggled so much, enough that in two losses this season it was actually Murray who proved to be the Bulldogs’ most dangerous runner. “Washaun, he’s not the type
of guy that gets down. I don’t care what he does, he’s going to keep talking trash or whatever. He could fumble five times, and he’s still going to be going ‘I’m the best, I’m the best,’” Green said. “But that’s the type of guy he is, man, and I’m real happy for him the way he came out and played today.” Ealey said Georgia practiced running the ball inside the five all week, and it showed, as the offensive line opened massive holes for Ealey. “Those guys up front have done a tremendous job. I hand the ball off and I look and I see a hole big enough for me to get 20 or 30 yards,” Murray said. “So those guys have done a tremendous job up front of opening up huge holes, and I have no complaints in the passing game. I get all day to throw the foot-
ball. So it all starts up front with those guys, and they’ve had probably their best three or four weeks of the season these past three or four weeks. They’ve been working their butts off, and it shows on the field.” And the matchup between Georgia and Florida now becomes a game which will — once again — sort out who is a pretender and contender in the SEC East with South Carolina. “We’re ready. We’re ready. We’re so ready to play these boys,” cornerback Sanders Commings said. “They’ve had our numbers the last couple of years, and we’re so ready to get revenge on them.” And Georgia looks to be a good bet to do that — as long as it can run the ball like it has the past three weeks.
OVERLOOKED PLAYER OF THE GAME: Justin Houston Although it is rather hard to be overlooked when you dominate the whole game from a defensive aspect, Houston needs to be recognized outside of Ealey’s touchdown performance. The junior linebacker put together five tackles, 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble and gathered in a fumble recovery. His performance disrupted Kentucky’s offense the entire night, and his involvement in two of the Wildcats’ fumbles set up two of Ealey’s scores. KEY MOMENT: Brandon Boykin’s 100yard kickoff return Georgia jumped out to an early lead, but the Wildcats were able to respond and pull the game to 7-3. However, on the subsequent kickoff return, Boykin cut up the Georgia sideline and outran the Wildcats’ coverage team for the score. The return touchdown was the fourth of Boykin’s career, and it disrupted Kentucky’s ounce of momentum it had captured — and helped Georgia jump out to an insurmountable 28-10 at the half. KEY DECISION: Bobo’s offensive gameplan Make no mistake, Georgia’s offensive coaches noticed something watching the film of Kentucky. The Bulldogs came out determined to run the football on the Wildcats, and it was obvious they held the advantage from the very beginning. Georgia’s offensive line was up for the task as well, controlling the line of scrimmage throughout the game. With Bobo determined to churn out yards on the ground, Georgia was able to compile 177 yards and five touchdowns running the football. QUOTE OF THE GAME: Boykin on the upcoming Florida game: “We have a ton of confidence that we can play with anybody if we do what we’re supposed to, and we’re going to take that into next week.” BY THE NUMBERS: Kentucky turnovers: 4 Georgia turnovers: 0 Kentucky Average Field Position: Kentucky 25-yard line Georgia Average Field Position: Kentucky 47-yard line Kentucky Total Offense: 423 Georgia Total Offense: 290 — Nick Parker
