Rams basketball prepare to face off against Buffs By Eddie Herz @Eddie_Herz

A single non-conference game usually means nothing more than a slight shift in the win or loss department. However, the Rams upcoming in-state rival game means a little bit more than that. “I’ve always said it’s not just another game,” CSU head coach Larry Eustachy said. Colorado State (5-1) will travel to the Coors Event Center in Boulder to face their arch-rival Colorado (5-1) in front of an anticipated 11,000 hostile fans.

“I think we may turn the sound up in the gym during practice, because it will be loud, may-

in there and see what happens, I know our guys will try.” The Rams would love to shift the momentum in the series after their home loss to CU last season. The 13-point lead the Rams built in the first half at Moby was promising a season ago, but not enough to win. The game was a tale of two halves, as CSU ended up losing the game 88-77. While the Rams are without a number of their key players from the Boulder game last season, a few are back with a vengeance. J.D. Paige and Emmanuel Omogbo, arguably the team leaders, took part in their team

squandering a promising start against the Buffs last season. They would love nothing more than to get the bitter taste of instate defeat out of their mouth. “I just feel like it’s not about CU, it’s about us,” Omogbo said. “We are going to go out there and play our game. Guys are starting to get into it, guys are starting to get comfortable. We are just going to go out there and play our game on their floor.” The teams have identical records of 5-1 entering the game.

CSU researchers awarded $1.8 million grants By Nataleah Small @NataleahJoy

For many researchers at Colorado State University, finding funding is a large barrier to their studies. The application process is highly competitive, and once grant money is allotted, researchers are unable to deviate from their original research topic. Now, with a new grant, three CSU researchers will have more flexibility to pursue multiple avenues within their fields of study. Earlier this semester, three researchers from CSU were granted Maximizing Investigators’ Research Awards from the National Institute of Health. Professors Taiowa Montgomery, Timothy Stasevich and Juan Lucas Arugeso were each granted $1.8 million to fund their research for the next five years. Arugeso, an associate professor in the department of environmental and radiological health sciences, said MIRA is unique because its structure differs from traditional research grants. “Instead of investigating in a specific project, (MIRA) will invest in specific scientists,” Argueso said. This is the first time the NIH has awarded this type of grant, Argueso said.

Often, Argueso said, by the time grant money is allotted, researchers have already conducted most of their research and end up using their awards to tie up loose ends, instead of to exploring new ideas. “(It) locks people into avenues they have to pursue until the end,” Argueso said. In contrast, the MIRA application does not require the researcher to provide preliminary data to prove their claim. Instead, researchers must outline their area of study and argue why their research is important. Montgomery, an assistant professor in the department of biology, said awards are allocated based on the merit of the research scientist and the importance of the question they are pursuing. The three researchers are currently using their grants to fund their research and are seeking out post-doctoral, graduate and undergraduate research assistants to work in their labs. Montgomery is using the grant to conduct research for his project, titled “Mechanism and Function of C. elegans microRNAs in Drug Resistance, Pathogen Defense, Fecundity and Development.” The purpose of Montgomery’s research is to answer how genes are turned on or off at the

right time. The current focus of his research is on the role micro-RNAs, small non-coding RNA molecules, in turning off or down genes, regulating their expression during development. Montgomery said he hopes his research will help scientists understand how organisms respond to environmental stimuli, how they protect themselves against toxins in the environment and how they respond to disease. “It’s such a simple, fundamental question, but it’s such a challenging question,” Montgomery said. He also hopes his research will lead to a breakthrough in the basic understanding of molecular processes and can be used by clinicians and applied researchers to help create better treatments for diseases like cancer and heart disease. Stasevich, an assistant professor in the department of biochemistry and molecular biology, is using the grant to fund his project, titled “Quantifying Gene Regulation by Histone Modification with High Spatiotemporal Resolution In Vivo.” The purpose of Stasevich’s research is to discover whether epigenetic histone modifications, a type of chemical modification, cause changes to genes.

To answer this question, Stasevich plans to use probes he previously developed to observe cells and learn whether chemistry has an impact on which genes are turned on and off. One direct application of these findings is in the field of cancer research. Stasevich said he would like to learn whether epigenetics plays a role in the in the production of the Myc oncogene. Myc is a cancer-causing gene that does not need to be mutated to be over-expressed, but must be turned on to promote tumor growth. Argueso is using the grant to fund his project, titled “Mechanisms and Phenotypic Consequences of Structural Genomic Variation.” The purpose of Argueso’s research is to study what causes mutations, specifically copy number variations, in the chro-

mosome structure. Copy number variation refers to either the over or under-representation of a copy of a gene. Too many or too few copies of a gene can lead to cellular imbalances like autism, Arugueso said. By conducting his research, Arugueso said he hopes to fill a knowledge gap to see how certain diseases are influenced by copy number changes. Argueso and his colleagues are excited about the future implications of their research and the freedom MIRA gives him to make new discoveries in the process. “The great thing about the MIRA grant is it gives researchers more flexibility to pursue new avenues of research as they emerge,” Montgomery said.

24 bike crashes this semester, commonly bike vs. car By Haley Candelario @H_Candelario98

Nearly half of all bike crashes this semester have been between a bike and car, and bike crashes are hardly ever the fault of a pedestrian, according to the most recent records from the CSU Police Department. A total of 24 bike crashes

According to records at the Colorado State University Police Department, the breakdown of types of bike crashes this semester are: Bike vs. Car - 11 Bike vs. Bike - 2 Bike vs. Ped - 1 Single Bike crashes - 10 Cyclist’s fault - 4 Car’s fault - 4 Pedestrian’s fault - 0 No fault - 4 have occurred this semester. The most common types of crashes have involved bikes and cars colliding and single bike crashes. Morgan Iacono, a sophomore history student, was the victim of a bike crash earlier in the semester. Iacono said she was a pedestrian who was hit by a cyclist while crossing at a fourway intersection near the Aggie Village apartments. “(The cyclist) didn’t stop and

went right through (the intersection),” Iacono said. “To jump out of the way, I rolled my ankle really bad, but I still got hit. It happened to be the leg that I’ve broken and sprained several times… I had some scrapes and stuff from rolling on the ground.” Iacona said even if she wasn’t hit, an accident was still likely to occur. “There were also cars that were trying to drive through that area at the same time, too, so if he hadn’t hit me, he probably would have been hit by something else or something in the future,” Iacono said. “It’s just not a safe position whether it’s with a pedestrian or with a car, so I feel like he wasn’t being vigilant or he was just in a hurry and just didn’t think about it.” Iacono said cyclists should be more aware of their responsibilities on their bikes to avoid colliding with pedestrians. “In my opinion, there should be a little more education on the right of way when it comes to bikes,” Iacono said. “I think a lot of (students) are used to being in the pedestrian position, (so) when they get on the bike they don’t really understand (that) they’re now a vehicle, and stop signs and signs that say ‘Yield to Pedestrians’ do apply to them.” Aaron Fodge of CSU’s alternative transportation manager, said both pedestrians and cyclists have to pay attention to their surroundings. “When (pedestrians are) walking in really congested areas, I would recommend not wearing earbuds, so you could actually hear someone talking to

you say, ‘Hey, I’m approaching’ or ringing a bell,” Fodge said. He also encourages cyclists with earbuds in to take them out. Fodge said pedestrians should take precautions when walking on campus by using the designated pedestrian side of the trails, even though they have the right of way. “Make sure to look both ways

ate side to walk on, usually with a sign and then a symbol in the concrete itself.” Fodge encourages cyclists to use hand signals to be courteous to pedestrians who are walking around them. “We try to encourage at all of our educational events and activities to use hand signals,” Fodge said. “We’re proud of the

Fodge highly encourages students to use the stop signal in particular, along with yielding to pedestrians. “If you’re going to stop, it’s always a courtesy to use that stop signal,” Fodge said. “Students need to make sure to slow down at the yield, and yes, it allows you to roll through there, (but) it doesn’t relieve you of the acci-

number of people that ride bikes here on campus, but... students need to communicate with each other when they’re riding bikes. Just like when you’re driving a car, if you’re going to turn left, you need to signal left.”

From triumph to tragedy, Brazil soccer team killed in plane crash By Rodrigo Ruiz-Tovar and Tatiana Rodriguez Deutsche Presse-Agentur

The Brazilian soccer team Chapecoense AF was flying to what might have been its greatest triumph - the first game of the final of the Copa Sudamericana football tournament, planned for Wednesday in Medellin, Colombia. Instead, the team met tragedy, when its chartered airplane crashed in the Cerro Gordo mountains, killing 71 of 77 people on board. Nineteen Chapecoense players were among the dead, as well as team officials, sport journalists and seven members of the plane’s flight crew, officials said. Just six people survived the disaster Monday night: Chapecoense defenders Alan Ruschel and Helio Hermito Zambier, known as Neto, and goalkeeper Jakson Follmann as well as flight crew members Ximena Suarez and Erwin Tumiri and journalist Rafael Henzel. They were all hospitalized with injuries. Follmann’s injured right leg was amputated in surgery Tuesday morning, the San Vicente Fundacion hospital said. The cause of the crash in the Cerro Gordo mountains near Medellin in Colombia’s northeastern Antioquia region was as yet unknown. The Avro RJ aircraft operated by Bolivian charter compa-

ny Lamia Airlines was carrying nine crew members and 68 passengers from a stopover in the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra for the 1,850-mile flight to Medellin when it disappeared from air traffic controllers’ radar screens around 10 p.m. local time Monday. Colombian Air Force Col. Edgar Sanchez said that the flight crew had reported problems with the aircraft’s electronics system before the accident. Authorities have recovered the airplane’s two flight data recorders, which the civil aviation authority said were in “perfect condition.” A post to the agency’s Twitter feed showed a photo of two blackened orange cases marked “flight recorder - do not open” displayed on a tarpaulin. Colombian Transport Minister Jorge Rojas said the black boxes would be key to discovering what caused the crash. U.S. authorities said the National Transportation Safety Board agency would assist Colombia in the investigation. Bolivian air charter company Lamia Airlines was founded in 2009 in Venezuela, and began operations in Bolivia in January specializing in transporting footballers and with a single plane the one that crashed Tuesday. Sources told DPA that Argentine football superstar Lionel Messi had travelled on the same Lamia plane less than three

weeks ago, returning to Argentina after the national team’s World Cup Qualifier against Brazil in Belo Horizonte. Speaking to press in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, where the company is headquartered, Lamia director Gustavo Vargas said the British-built plane was “modern” and underwent weekly safety checks. He said one of Lamia’s owners, pilot Miguel Quiroga, was

at the controls on the plane’s final flight, and said Quiroga was trained in the Bolivian Air Force and that his pilot’s license was in order. Bolivian authorities said the company appeared to have been in violation of Bolivian laws that require registration with the country’s Labor Ministry. As condolences poured in from leaders, fans around the world and footballers including

Pele, Neymar, Messi and Diego Maradona, Brazilian President Michel Temer declared three days of national mourning. A “very shaken” Pope Francis sent his condolences to the victims’ families, while Alejandro Dominguez, president of the South American Football Confederation, or CONMEBOL, called it a “tragic day for football.” see CRASH on page 14 >>

Trump’s energy policy is fundamentally dangerous Alexandra Stettner @alexstetts

One of the major reasons I opposed Trump was because of his proposed energy policy. It’s a complete disaster for the environment. Trump has outwardly supported the oil, gas, and coal industries, claiming he will reduce taxes on those industries, lift regulations, and clear the path for their growth. The impact those industries have on the environment is astounding; they are the main cause of man-made climate change, which is indisputable. If we want to avoid major catastrophes around the world due to climate change, we must move away from these industries. A common argument against transitioning away from those industries is the amount of Americans who are employed, the job opportunities, and the simple fact that they make money for the American economy. These were many of the arguments that Trump used to defend his proposed policies, and appeal to the public. I fully understand supporting the individuals who are employed by these industries, but continuing to support them in these industries is not the answer. Renewable energies are growing industries, something that is still being pioneered, and has tremendous opportunities for employees to grow within the industry. Not to mention, there is an incredible amount

of job openings, and the pay can be significantly higher. These companies want to expand and have the finances and infrastructure to do so, they just lack the manpower. So much so, they are offering jobs to those overseas. These industries also are significantly safer and healthier for the employees. Coal is notoriously harmful to those workers, with cases of lung cancer and other diseases common. My grandfather, who grew up in a coal mining town, could speak to this. Clean energy is not only clean for the environment, but also for those who maintain its facilities.

Renewable energies are growing industries, something that is still being pioneered, and has tremendous opportunities for employees to grow within the industry. If Trump was really looking out for the individuals working in the energy sector, he would be encouraging renewable industries, subsidizing those companies and helping folks who work in the oil, gas, and coal industries transition to work in the new, clean energy industries. The president-elect isn’t doing this, and neither are those representatives who are time and time again still supporting the dangerous industries. It’s clear that politicians

who “deny” climate change and continue to support those industries are not looking out for the everyday employee, but the CEOs and executives who continue to fund their campaigns. Not only is oil, gas, and coal toxic to the environment and American politics, but it is also a dying industry and soon to be economically nonviable. These are non-renewable resources, meaning that we will run out of them. Current estimates predict the world will run out of oil in just over 50 years. Why invest so much into poisonous industry that will eventually disappear? To put that in perspective, that’s just in our lifetimes, but also just out of the range of the global “point of no return” in regards to climate in 2050. Worst case scenario, that means we will live to see oil run out and a wide transition to sustainable and renewable energies, but also live to see climate catastrophes around the world. Best case scenario, we hold our politicians accountable for turning a private industry in to systematic and illogical damage to the environment for personal monetary gains and political security, while endangering a healthy future for everyone. The funny thing about both of these scenarios, is that we hold all the power to make that decision. It’s on us. Don’t let one president and a few greedy politicians that are supposed to represent us in Washington take that power from you. Alexandra Stettner can be reached at opinion@collegian. com.

How should CSU proceed after attack at Ohio State? Allec Brust @allecbrust

I have found myself asking the same question a lot this year: What would I do if I experienced an attack on campus? It’s a good question to ask in lieu of the attack at Ohio State University that happened earlier this week as well as the multiple incidences at CU earlier in the year. Attacks happen on college campuses all the time, so who’s to say that it won’t happen at CSU? We already had a couple scares last year, (remember the guy with the machete at the library?) so who’s to say it won’t happen again on a larger scale? Of course the media has already been blowing up begging a plethora of questions: should campuses increase security? Should Ohio State have reacted differently? It’s a textbook media response. We don’t want to have to deal with the violence of campus attacks so we feel the need to come up with solutions. There is no solution other than to keep carrying on like normal. At CSU, the only thing to fear when it comes to campus attacks is fear itself. Anybody of any religion, race, gender and age can commit violent crimes. No matter how much we amp up security, change gun laws or educate students, there will still be violent people in this world who will find a way to carry out their attacks. CSU has excellent security and the means to stop an on campus attack if necessary, and has done so in the past. We need to lean on that

comfort and understand that we are not alone. Instead of being frightened by the media’s fear tactics or allowing the fear of an on-campus attack consume you, realize that everything that can be done is being done. No good will come from fearing something that may or may not happen. We need to learn from the violence committed by others to promote peace, but acting out of fear for the unknown does more harm than good. We at CSU have great dorm security, on-campus law enforcement, emergency call boxes, and an excellent public safety system. We are lucky that our safety is such a high priority. Yes, recent events should raise awareness, but not effect our community.

There is no solution other than to keep carrying on like normal. Be aware of your surroundings at all times, but don’t let fear influence your life. We go to an excellent university that cares for our well-being and instead of fearing the unknown, we should take comfort in the protection we have. So how should we proceed after the attack at Ohio State? Just like any other day. Allec Brust can be reached at

Words from the enemy: Hardwood showdown Justin Guerriero @TheHungryHippo

With the Colorado State basketball team set to take on Colorado Wednesday Nov. 30, Collegian sports editor Chad Deutschman shared questions with CU Independent sports editor Justin Guerrero about the game. Chad Deutschman: Colorado State forward Emmanuel Omogbo was just named MW player of the week after averaging a double-double over fall break and leading the MW in rebounds. How do you expect the CU defense to handle Omogbo’s effort on the glass and scoring inside? Justin Guerriero: Points in the paint have been an area of concern for this Buffaloes squad. The team is simply allowing too many easy baskets. While Col-

orado does do well in the paint itself, its inability to effectively contain big men has been a problem. I think Omogbo will do just fine in scoring his season average of 13.5 points per game. In every game minus the loss to Notre Dame, CU has outrebounded its opponent. A double-double for him is certainly in the ballpark. CD: CSU Head Coach Larry Eustachy is known to play a gritty style of defense, leading to long possessions and low-scoring games. How do you feel the CU offense will handle that style of play? JG: Colorado’s ball movement has been good this year, which is in part why there are four guys on the team averaging double digits in scoring. The offensive load has been pretty spread out this year. So we’ll see how it goes. The Buffaloes do have a bad turnover rate though at 12.7 per game, which is more than their competition’s collective average on the

year. So if the Rams are able to get down and dirty in the defensive zone, it could spell trouble for Colorado. CD: While it’s not the Rocky Mountain Showdown, it remains a big game for both programs and fan bases. What kind of atmosphere do you expect the Coors Event Center to have? JG: After the Buffaloes pounded the Rams on the football field, and since the team has experienced so much success this year, I think a lot of people in Boulder are leaning on the old “CSU is the little brother to CU” routine. This matchup at Coors Events Center is a chance for the Buffs to further that thinking. Games against the Rams are always hyped up. I’m sure attendance will be pretty solid. Better hope the Buffaloes don’t win this one big, or I’m afraid that Colorado students will hold all rights to trash talking for the rest of the athletic season.

>> SHOWDOWN from page 1 AP poll, in part due to a 14-point upset victory over then ranked No. 22 University of Texas. The two programs from across highway 287 have completely different identities. The Rams are full of new faces and former bench players stepping up to take roles. On the other hand, CU is starting four seniors and one junior. Experience is on the Boulder side, but CSU should be able

to hang around thanks to their defense and ability on the glass. The Rams have held their opponents under 60 points in three of their six contests, including holding Stanford to 56 points on the road. Omogbo’s 12.3 rebounds per game and Che Bob’s 7.2 rebounds per game have been a major contributor to the Rams 5-1 start. As a team, CSU currently ranks 21st in the country in rebounds per game. “It’s just like coach tells us,

eye on? JG: With the departure of Josh Scott, who graduated last Spring, the Buffaloes have had to find ways to replace his points and leadership. Four of the team’s starters currently average more than 10 points per game. Senior Xavier Johnson has been the Buffaloes’ best weapon thus far. He averages 15 points per game and in CU’s last game against Wofford scored 27. Also, senior guard Derrick White has been great for the team this year. He transferred from UCCS and has averaged 13.7 points per game this year for CU. He’s been Colorado’s most effective shooter, making 56.9 percent of his shots from the floor. CD: Both teams are 5-1, but CU has faced some better competition. What have been the strengths of this Buffaloes squad thus far? JG: The team has been great at making shots. As a whole, the Buffs are shooting 45 percent from the floor. Head Coach Tad

it’s not going to happen on the offensive end,” Omogbo said. We are going to win games when we hold teams to under 30 percent and rebound the ball.” The game will begin at 7 p.m. MT on Wednesday in Boulder. The Buffs have won six out of the last 10 in the series. They also lead the all-time series 8638. Eddie Herz can be reached by email at sports@collegian. com.

Boyle called his team “overrated” before the first game of the season. His main areas of concern are rebounding and perimeter defense. So far this year, the Buffaloes have looked good, but not great. Maturity is a big strength of this year’s team. The Buffaloes’ top five scorers are all upperclassmen and they’ve done a good job of grooming some of the younger guys to be able to assume a position of providing help now, as opposed to in a year or two. CD: Your prediction. Are we in for a RMS repeat or a fight to the buzzer? JG: It certainly won’t be a repeat of the RMS. The Rams always play hard against CU so I expect at least somewhat of a close matchup. I think the game will be close in the first half and little by little Colorado will start to inch away later in the game. I’m thinking 84-75 Buffaloes.

8 CSU Rams receive Mountain West honors By Eric Wolf @Eric_Wolf5

Eight Colorado State football players earned All-Mountain West honors for their efforts during the 2016 season, the conference announced on Tuesday. To no surprise, wide receiver Michael Gallup and punter Hayden Hunt were named first team All-Mountain West performers, while guard Fred Zerblis was also named to the first team. Senior linebacker Kevin Davis and junior center Jake Bennett were named to the second team, while senior guard Paul Thurston, senior tackle Nick Callender and junior quarterback Nick Stevens received honorable mentions. Six out of eight of the CSU award winners came from the offensive side of the ball, while Davis was the only CSU defensive player named to the All-conference teams. The CSU offense finished sixth in the conference in scoring at 34.1 points per game and the team finished 4th in total offense at 451 yards per game. No offense in the conference played better over the second half of the season than the Rams, who aver-

aged 43.3 points per game over the final six games. Zerblis, a second team performer from a season ago, made 12 starts this season as right guard along with the other anchor of the offensive line in Bennett who started every game at center. Overall, four out of five starters on the CSU offensive line were recognized for their play during the 2016 season. That CSU offensive line gave up just over one sack per game this season and helped pave the way for a rushing attack that finished fifth in the run-heavy conference with 223.2 yards per game on the ground. The offensive front proved especially effective in the last five weeks of the season, as the Rams picked up 274.4 yards per game on the ground, and 520.6 total yards per game. Gallup, a junior juco transfer from Butler Community College, took awhile to fully get involved in the CSU offense, but by the end of the season, he proved to be one of the better playmakers in the entire conference. Gallup finished second in the Mountain West to fellow first-teamer Thomas Sperbeck of Boise State in total receiving yards with 1,164, but it was in

Hunt, who was named as the second team punter last season, capped off another great year by being named the conference’s number one punter. Hunt finished fourth in the conference by averaging 44.3 yards per punt, but Hunt was particularly effective in pinning teams deep, as he downed 24 punts inside the opponents twenty yard line while only picking up three touchbacks on the season. Davis, who had a strong season as the unquestioned leader on the young CSU Rams defense might come as a surprise second team selection. For the year, Davis finished eighth in the conference with 101 total tackles. He also picked up 9.5 tackles for loss, an interception and finished second in the conference with four forced fumbles. Nick Stevens went from the 2015 second team All-Mountain West quarterback to a backup after week one this year, but his resurgence after returning to the lineup in week seven against Boise State revitalized the CSU

offense and landed a post-season honor for Stevens. Stevens, who completed over 65 percent of his passes, led the conference in completion percentage while throwing for 1,491 yards and 14 touchdowns with only three interceptions in seven starts. For the second year in a row, a repeat trio of San Diego State Aztecs swept the major conference awards. Running back Donnel Pumphrey was named

the offensive player of the year, defensive back Damontae Kazee received the defensive player of the year award and kick returner Rashaad Penny was named the special teams player of the year. After leading the Wyoming Cowboys to a 8-4 season and a Mountain division title, Wyoming coach Craig Bohl was named the conference’s coach of the year. Eric Wolf can be reached by email at

Pokemon’s ‘Sun’ gives the franchise a new look By Connor DeBlieck @CDeBlieck1995

Celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, Pokemon franchise developers GAME FREAK and Nintendo have been hard at work bringing forth the seventh generation of Pokemon called “Sun.” Pokemon games, while wildly enjoyable, challenging and packed with countless hours of fun, have become rather stale and dull over the span of 20 years. The games have a redundant story that has continued for six generations, but the franchise’s repetitive nature came to a halt on Nov. 18 with the released “Sun.” The game takes place on new region called Alola, which is meant to be a representation of Hawaii. The Alola region is made up of four islands with a fifth man-made island created by

the Aether Foundation, a organization of scientists who sought

to protect Pokemon from Team Skull’s destructive plans. “Sun” completely reimagines the world of Pokemon, which alters the stale and constant premise, bringing forth a breath of fresh air to the

franchise. Gyms and Gym Leaders have been replaced with Island and Grand Trials; the evil organization known as Team Skull still exists but it has an intriguing twist. The portrayal of Pokemon in the series has shifted from being an advisory for battle to a friend and companion in the same way we view pets that also help us with our daily tasks. There are seven Island Trials, and each has a Trial Captain that instructs the player. Upon completing the Island Trials on each island, the player begins the island’s Grand Trial. The game consists of four Grand Trials where the player battles the island champion Kahuna to continue on the next island. What became very apparent upon progressing through the game was that while the other Pokemon games consisted of a story, they were severely lacking

in a thoroughly engaging and emotional story. Pokemon “Sun” offers that thrilling rollercoaster storyline that is filled with its fair share of shocking plot twist and character development. For the most part, this made the game feel completely unlike Pokemon for all the right reasons. Without revealing the entire plot, “Sun” did a fantastic job of making the story and the world of Pokemon seem more real than ever before. To showcase that the Island Trials were not something every trainer could accomplish brought forth a sense of reality in the franchise that every Pokemon trainer is not the same. The big bad villain at the end also offered a twist. It was not the leader of Team Skull but someone entirely different that was blinded by ambition and sought to create her version of the world. Her passion and motivation to exclude all else made

her a very relatable villain. “Sun” also featured roughly 100 new Pokemon that were all well-balanced and over 30 hours of game-play unlike previous titles that capped at around 20 hours. The other noteworthy thing that the seventh generation features is more adult, dark themes that are intended for the older audience who have been playing Pokemon since they were young. The best part of the “Sun” is that it not only keeps the action going until the ultimate climax, but it also blends the post-game exploration into the story to make it seem never-ending. Should you play it?: Yes “Sun” is the best game in the franchise and creates a realistic and beautiful experience for the player. Connor DeBlieck can be reached at entertainment@


Rams Organization for Animal Rights fosters vegan activism By Maddie Wright @maddiewright

In a world of vegan memes and making fun of the hippies, the Rams Organization for Animal Rights is here to show that being vegan is not just a fad. ROAR is for those who feel a strong passion for animals justice, and it functions as a place for involvement in the CSU and Fort Collins community. “We’re an activism-based organization for animal lovers, vegans and social justice advocates working to create a better world for animals,” said Austin Joseph, ROAR member. Joseph said the club has been active for a long time, proving that it is not something of recent fascination. “I believe the club was originally started in 2009, though it existed under different names until a few years ago when the name became ROAR,” Joseph said. The members of the organization are also something to be proud of, according to Joseph. Their impact is large and varies from active members to ones that participate when they can. “ROAR has about 15 currently active members, though we have up to 40 that we see a few times each semester at our

popular vegan potlucks,” Joseph said. Joseph said the club is very important to not only its members but to the greater good of society as a whole. In addition to activism, there is friendship as you would see in any CSU organization. “Our club provides a community for animal lovers and vegans, which is something a lot of our members really love. It’s wonderful to have friends with the same passions as you,” Joseph said. But, the overbearing theme for this group is to make change they can see both on the local scale of CSU’s campus and on a larger, state-wide scale. “This club also aims to create social change, and that’s the primary purpose of this club,” Joseph said. “We work with other groups all over Colorado in hopes that we can someday create a world where animals of all species are respected and protected by humans.” ROAR has a very strong on-campus presence for anyone interested to get involved in. Each semester, they put on weekly meetings, provide guest speakers, movie screenings, leafleting outreach, tabling outreach and potlucks. Along with getting to know

one another and sharing common interests, this club facilitates as a way to build professional relationships and network. “Through our guest speakers and community contacts, we also try to connect members with internship or job opportunities in the animal rights field,” Joseph said. Joseph said campus activities are not the only the club does. They helped build a farm animal sanctuary in Boulder, protested at a slaughterhouse

in Greeley and cooked a vegan community meal with the homeless community in Fort Collins. “We volunteer with farm animal sanctuaries, where we get to play with rescued farm animals, and other animal-friendly community organizations,” Joseph said. Joseph said the club provides a good outlet for those who would like to get involved in social justice but are not entirely sure how to. “We offer members an

introduction to activism by coordinating protests and collaborating with groups that specialize in non-violent direct action,” Joseph said. Anyone can join ROAR by emailing “We meet on a weekly basis, and meeting dates and times will be posted on Ramlink and communicated through email,” Joseph said.

Metallica’s latest album is not worth it ALEC REVIEWS MUSIC

By Alec Erickson @CTV_Ace

Every genre has a member that eventually becomes synonymous with the genre itself. For metal, that has always been Metallica, the band that has been around for the better part of 35 years now. With their share of hits and classic albums, it honestly comes to fans as more of a surprise when Metallica decides to release new music. While it has been a while, eight years to be exact, since their last record, their new music does not really feel all that new. That is the biggest theme with “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct.” Metallica formed back in 1981 in Los Angeles. Essentially they are the band that ushered in the era of Thrash Metal. They have been a major key in the metal genre with most people being able to recognize a few of their hit songs for sure. It was not until the release of “Mas-


ter of Puppets” in 1986 that the band started to get some mainstream popularity. That is why, when the band would put out six more albums in the next 30 years, each subsequent one would become a must-have record for anyone. While their record “St. Anger” left fans feeling more upset than anything, it was not as on-form as the rest of Metallica’s works. That is where this two disc tenth-studio album “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct” comes in. “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct” is a two-disc set, which has a total 12 tracks. Disc one clocks out to be around to 37 minutes long, and the second disc clocks out to be around 40 minutes. Then, if you really wanted the same songs but live, the deluxe version includes a couple of new tracks and ten live renditions of the songs on the record. The deluxe version clocks out to be a whopping two and a half hours long. Needless

to say it takes a while to listen to the record, and in all that time you begin to start thinking fundamentally nothing feels new. It all sounds a bit too safe. It is more predictable than anything else, and that is saying a lot for a record from Metallica. Musically, this whole record is just one big cliché. It does exactly what the title promises to do. Self-destruct, and not in a fun and exciting way. Slowly but surely everything on this record begins to fall apart the more you listen to it. The music is good, but the guitar solos quickly begin to feel played out and are much more reminiscent of Iron Maiden than Metallica. There are a few tracks on the whole record that provide that complete genuine experience. “Spit out the Bone” is a thrash filled intense and fast paced track that will remind you of the old school days for Metallica. It is the best combination of the guitar solos, drums and

vocals all working well together. Then you get all the tracks that start to sound the exact same. Whether that be “Confusion,” “ManUNkind” and “Am I Savage?” all sound like the same song structurally, and really it would have helped this record a lot more if they were just cut. One of the main issues of the record is its production value. It is not all that tight. It’s awkward and clunky at times, and for a record from a band that has been doing it for so long, it is a bit sad to hear. Lyrically, guess what Metallica is singing about this time around? If you managed to guess angry battle with personal demons, then you would be correct. Songs begin to struggle with, as they were not some of the band’s most inspired writing, but also the fact they some of them carry on way too long and get lost in trying to cope with the length. Nothing is new and there are a few point-

less jabs here and there, but the main thing that will bother long-time fans is that there are now callbacks to their own songs from years ago. That is just lazy if anything else, and does not really serve this record any justice. Should you listen to it?: No Honestly it was hard to say, but when it comes down to it “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct” is not a great album. It is not a horrible album, but it is one of those records that makes you question why they even made it. Metallica has created something that is somewhere between the past and the present, but there are not enough new things here to make it exciting, and it’s not as fun to listen to. You are better off without this being a must have, every band has either a hit or miss album, and this is by far is a miss. Alec Erickson can be reached at entertainment@collegian. com

CrossFit: Basically just P.E. for adults Hayley Blackburn @hayley_blckbrn

On the north end of College, just past Jax Outdoors Sports and across from the Serious Texas BBQ, I discovered a new type of gym and workout: Yeti Cave CrossFit. The cave, founded by Nate Seitz, opened just a few months ago, but it already has a community of members encouraging each other to reach his or her own potential.

Today, I challenge you to like Yeti Cave on Facebook and stay tuned for part 2 of my CrossFit experience later this week. When I walked in for my first fundamental workout, Nate immediately introduced me to the class. Four other members had braved the dark and the cold to learn more about CrossFit at the 7pm Thursday session. I felt comfortable and connected despite never having attended a CrossFit class in my life. Jonathan, the certified coach for the evening, walked us through the plan for the next hour and helped us get to know each other while we warmed up. As it turns out, that sense of community is exactly what Yeti Cave wants for all of its members. While I was stretching out my arms and preparing to learn how to properly dead-lift, I marveled at the surroundings. I know that sounds cliche, but the gym is a beautiful blend of professional, hardcore and simplistic decor. Nate’s family helped him decorate his dream, and they deserve serious props.

Check out Yeti Cave for a community workout like never before. PHOTO COURTESY OF YETI CAVE CROSSFIT.

A large reception desk welcomes members and checks them in. On the far wall, plenty of cubby holes await your shoes and jackets. The gym even has a shower in the back for your lunch-break workout convenience. Vibrant blue and black stripes along the walls match the brand new equipment and really make the Cave feel like champions are born there. On the back wall, a large American flag hangs as a reminder that we live in a country where hard work meets potential and everyone has the power to find success in themselves. Coming back down to earth, I watch intently as Jonathan begins demonstrating our lifts for the evening. The instruction is one of the great parts about working out as a group with a trained coach. We all practice the dead-lift with no weight as John walks around and provides advice and adjustments. After everyone has caught on, Jonathan writes our workout on a dry erase board. The ladies are doing 3 sets of 10 dead-lifts, sumo dead-lifts, and sit-ups -- the guys, 5 sets. I breeze through the first few sets and, being one to never let a

challenge pass me by, I push on to a fourth. The lone guy in the class and I push each other along. We are racing in an unspoken competition to see who can keep their form while finishing first. Just three more sit-ups to go... and the winner is... a tie! We both hop up, panting and tired, to fist bump. That is the true beauty and potential of Yeti Cave - it is a real community that makes everyone push a little harder. While we cool down, Jonathan talks a bit more about the classes offered. He describes CrossFit as a P.E. class for adults. Looking around at the jungle gym of pull-up bars, the playground of weight sets and the various tools and toys to help you get fit, I DO feel like I am back in gym class. CrossFit is all about increasing your work output through fundamental movements, something I will explain more in the next edition, but this first session opened my eyes to a new way to work out my body. Today, I challenge you to Like Yeti Cave on Facebook and stay tuned for Part 2 of my CrossFit experience later this week. Hayley Blackburn can be reached at .

Study finds CSU students unaware that school has sports other than football Sean Kennedy @seanskenn

Explaining that participants left the survey in disbelief, a study published Monday by researchers at Colorado State University found that students are entirely unaware that the school has sports teams other than football. “Our findings suggest that not only are CSU students

>> CRASH from page 5 Thousands of fans gathered at Chapecoense’s Arena Conda stadium in the southern Brazilian city of Chapeco Tuesday in a spontaneous tribute to the team, Brazilian news portal Globoesporte reported. Along with family members, friends and team employees, fans sang club songs and chanted the names of the players aboard the doomed airplane. Chapecoense players were on their way to a Wednesday match in Medellin, the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana final against Colombian rivals Atletico Nacional. The scrappy team, perennial underdogs, comes from the southern Brazilian state of

unaware that our school has other sports teams, but they’re also largely skeptical about the existence of any other sports entirely,” said the study’s head researcher, Tati Isbad, who added that several students were observed at basketball games in Moby Arena during the study yelling about illegal formations and wondering aloud why the goalpost had a basket on it. “Once we explained to our subjects that, yes, sports other than football exist and yes, there are teams for them here on campus, many still remained skeptical of the idea,” explained

In the wake of the crash, Atletico Nacional asked the CONMEBOL that Chapecoense be awarded the Copa Sudamericana title. “Atletico Nacional asks CONMEBOL that the title of South America be given to Chapecoense,” the team wrote in a statement, adding that “pain overwhelms our hearts.” In a show of solidarity, Brazilian football clubs proposed a joint effort to rebuild the team by lending it players for free for the 2017 season.

Isbad. “In light of this, we recommend that every student get out of their apartment more and actually read the damn paper once in a while.” Isbad noted, however, that student awareness of football on campus did not correlate with actual knowledge of or enthusiasm for the team itself, with inconsistent game attendance levels continuing to persist in all sports on campus, regardless of student awareness of them.
