SMU last played Texas Tech at Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock, TX in 2010, when they lost 35-27. Tech has beaten SMU in 14 consecutive games.

Ford sells out against Tech Billy Embody Sports Writer The Mustangs will face the Texas Tech Red Raiders tonight in a sold-out Ford Stadium. All reserved stadium seats as well as 3,000 general admission lawn passes were claimed, marking the first advance sell-out in the stadium’s history. “Everybody is ready to play that’s for sure. Everyone is ready to see a different colored jersey,” SMU Head Coach June Jones said. Jones enters his sixth season at SMU having only won one season opener, which was against Stephen F. Austin in his second season. SMU also begins its first season as a member of the new American Athletic Conference, which should prove to be a tougher conference than Conference USA, SMU’s previous conference. “We’ve had great effort and concentration in practice and

conditioning wise, this is the best conditioned team we’ve ever had,” Jones said. SMU quarterback Garrett Gilbert enters his second season as the starter and the pressure is on the former Texas transfer to improve and take Jones’ offense to the next level. With Gilbert displaying his running ability late in the 2012 season, there are expected to be more designed runs for Gilbert. Jones added assistant coach Hal Mumme this Spring to mix in some of his Air Raid offense. Mumme, the passing game coordinator, has added two-back shotgun formations, a more uptempo pace to the offense and possibly more formations with a tight end on the field. A key for the offense will be to control the clock and keep the fast-moving Texas Tech offense off the field and that responsibility rests on Traylon Shead’s shoulders. The former Texas Longhorn is expected to have

a solid season for SMU, and Jones had very high praise for him. “I think the transfer running back Traylon Shead from Texas is maybe the best running back that I’ve had play the position,” Jones said. Returning for the Mustangs on defense, who have just 17 seniors on their roster, are linebackers Randall Joyner and Stephon Sanders, who are expected to produce in a big way for the young SMU front seven. In the secondary, SMU returns a wealth of talented depth and is expected to be the strength of the defense with preseason All-AAC first-team selection Kenneth Acker and senior safety Jay Scott leading the way. Playing against Texas Tech, which loves to air it out, the secondary will have to be at their best, especially if SMU struggles to get a pass rush with an entirely new defensive line. In a nationally televised, highprofile matchup to open their

season, with a true first-year at the helm, it will be on the Mustangs to get pressure on Safety Davis or Quarterback Mayfield to rattle them early. “Really it’s a home game for us and our opener so if we want to be anybody we have to win home games. It’s going to be fun for the kids to see a full stadium,” Jones said. “We emphasize it all the time. You cannot lose home games.” Ultimately, the key for the game will be scoring first for SMU. Over the last two seasons, SMU is 15-0 when scoring first and 0-13 when the opponent scores first. SMU has struggled against Texas Tech over the years, losing 14 straight games to the Red Raiders, and are just 16-32 against Texas Tech all-time. The last time SMU beat Texas Tech was 1989 and SMU had its most success against Texas Tech from 1981-1986, when SMU won six straight. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.

SMU boasts an impressive array of scholars and honors programs to challenge, reward and enlighten students during their four years on campus. The John Goodwin Tower Center for Political Studies will be one of the newest to introduce a scholars program to the community. One of its most unique aspects, however, is the absence of monetary scholarship. With an aim for a “longerlasting impact” than simply offering courses and lectures, Professor Diana Newton, one of the creators of the Tower Scholars program, explained that the end result for the scholars will be outstanding first-hand experience working in the real world of public policy. This means working for some of the biggest entities in the Dallas area to identify and solve a serious policy issue. “The intention is to give the Tower Scholars an education in policy making and real-world policy issues,” Newton said. The scholars program will open for sophomore-level application in the fall of 2014, with an estimated 10 students to ultimately be invited to the program. The highlyselective nature of the program allows the scholars to be sent out into Dallas, where they will be educated on a current policy issue faced by a company. “Getting a chance to have a real client...they would be tasked with a policy problem that entity is actually facing,” Newton explained. Scholars will not be left on their own to solve their policy issue, however. One unique aspect of the program will be coming back to campus for the semester to work weekly not only with faculty, but with a policy maker week-to-week, creating a stronger mentorship

Students travel to Zambia with Bush Institute Emily Sims News Writer Four SMU students were selected to travel to Zambia with the Bush Institute this past June. Junior Prithvi Rudrappa, senior Katie Bernet, and sophomores Melanie Enriquez and Tyrell Russell, helped renovate one of the clinics that is a part of the Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon program. This is a flagship program in the Global Health section of the Bush Institute that deals with cervical and breast cancer. Finance and biochemistry double major Rudrappa already had a summer internship lined up when he received an e-mail from Dr. Eric Bing stating that he had been recommended for the program. After sending Dr. Bing his resume and having an interview, Rudrappa was told on June 1 that he would be leaving for Zambia three weeks later. Luckily, his internship allowed him to take a week off. “I probably would have quit if they didn’t let me,” Rudrappa said. “I knew I couldn’t miss this opportunity.” Hannah Abney, director of media relations at the Bush Institute, described the purpose of this trip as two-fold. “The first is to support the work of Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon

by renovating the cervical cancer screening area so that women are able to come to the clinic and get comprehensive health care that includes screening for cervical cancer,” Abney said. “The other purpose of the trip is to remind people that to who much is given much is required.” In 2011, George and Laura Bush traveled to Zambia. They worked with the Zambian government to renovate a clinic that gave women access to breast and cervical cancer screenings. According to Dr. Eric Bing, senior fellow and director of Global Health at the Bush Institute, this clinic saw 10 percent of all cervical cancer cases in the country. This number is 2.5 times the expected percentage of cases, if there had been an even distribution among the 25 clinics in Zambia. After renovating the first clinic, George and Laura Bush knew they wanted to go back and do it again. This time, they decided to bring volunteers, including four SMU students. The students, along with Dr. Bing, left on June 21. After 21 hours of traveling, they finally arrived at the clinic. Rudrappa said his first thought when he saw the clinic was “we have a lot of work to do in five days.” Although the clinic was still functioning, Rudrappa was overwhelmed to see how animals

were littering their waste outside the clinic. “It was in pretty bad shape,” advertising major Bernet said. According to Bernet, the previous crew had done the majority of the construction. It was up to them and the group of volunteers and Zambian construction workers to finish the job. “We painted the whole exterior, the roof, and the interior,” Bernet said. Working alongside the Zambian people was one experience that stuck out for Bernet. “It was so cool since he was around our age and we got to hear all about his life,” Bernet said. “It gave us an idea of what our life would be like if we lived in Zambia.” Russell, a biology major, encountered a little boy when he and the rest of the group decided to walk through one of the villages to hand out clothes and supplies. The boy was standing away from the rest of the group crying. Russell walked over to him, asked him what was wrong and referred to him as “big man” — a name that Russell was called when he was younger. As the boy stopped crying, Russell said he had a realization. “I am no different than this little boy who lives on the other side of the world,” Russell said. “By being aware of that oneness, it made both my experience in Africa and my

perspective on global health a lot more meaningful and personal.” For Dr. Bing, the interaction between the students and the Zambian community was one part of the trip he found rewarding. “When [the students] worked with the Zambian people, not only did they get to understand them but the Zambians were also able to understand Americans,” Bing said. “The students, I think, were amazed to see how similar we are and even though their opportunities aren’t the same, their hopes and dreams and wishes for life are really no different [from] our own.” The students also had the opportunity to visit Livingstone General Hospital. For Rudrappa, it was this visit that had the greatest impact on him. Dr. Bing arranged for the students to visit the cervical cancer ward and talk with the doctors, nurses and patients about their day-to-day lives. “We were able to talk to the patients about their battles and how some had to convince their husbands it was okay to go to the clinic,” Rudrappa said. “Hearing the patients’ life stories really had an impact on me.” Although there are not any upcoming trips to Africa planned, Abney recommends students interested in these types of issues apply for internships at the Bush Institute within the Global Health program.

than a rotation of lecturers would. When giving a student the same responsibilities as a professional in the field of public policy, students need to be able to “be thrown into a project, be good to go, and serve as a functioning colleague from the get-go.” Professor Chelsea Brown, cocreator of the program, said that applicants will need more than just an interest in public policy. Brown explained that “there’s that third area that’s really hard to quantify” when students want to know how best to prepare their applications for success, and she said it’s “people skills.” “We want really professional students that we can confidently send out into the marketplace that we know have a base level of skills and a certain level of professionalism,” Brown said. The program encourages all majors to apply. Brown explained the scholar program “is not going to create additional hours,” and will instead compliment a student’s major. Understanding public policy is something that can be essential in every career field. “[Students] will be able to look at their area of study with...a more global perspective...and understand its implications in the real world,” Newton said. Brown added that the program will graduate students who “understand the bigger picture” and “know the political implications” of policy decisions within any business. “[Scholars] will walk out of here with [their] degree and a professional network that is really something above and beyond your standard student network,” Brown said. “They have something that is really a step above with people you can call, people you can mentor and people you know.” The Tower Center will hold information sessions for interested applicants throughout the fall semester.

“Provisions on Demand” offers new, healthier options for students.

‘POD’ opens in Meadows Leah Johnson Contributing Writer It’s the year of SMU Dining. SMU Dining will unveil yet another addition to its program: P.O.D. or Provisions on Demand Market. This new campus convenience store was designed with students in mind as the concept was framed around meeting the needs of students looking for healthy, fresh and convenient grab-n-go dining options without leaving the comfort of their academic environment. “Our research found that students were looking for freshly prepared foods and everyday essentials in one convenient

location on campus,” David ter Kuile, director of operations for SMU dining, said in a press release. “Our goal was to develop a highlycustomized solution that delivers quality, convenience, variety and value.” There are options for any time of the day that include breakfast sandwiches, burritos, wraps, sushi, salads, fresh produce, bakery and coffee selections, as well as traditional items found in a convenience store. P.O.D is located within the Bonelli Commons in Meadows School of the Arts and will replace the Starbucks cart. The hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays.

Fish is delish at Dive Coastal Cuisine

Quality seafood and local produce come together for a healthy dining experience at a reasonable price Mallory Ashcraft Food Editor

Quality seafood that is reasonably priced can be hard to find, but Dive Coastal Cuisine’s mid-priced menu, and emphasis on freshness and local produce make it the perfect spot to get your fish fix. The menu features a mix of popular types of seafood, including shellfish, tuna and salmon, as well as sandwiches and wraps. There is also a wide variety of salads to choose from, including kale salad and quinoa salad. The greens are organic and locally sourced, and they taste extremely fresh. The Cove Size salads are $6 each — a pretty good price considering the relatively large portions. The Olympic Size salads are entree salads that range in price from $10 to $16, and include an option to add shrimp, salmon, ahi tuna, crab cakes or chicken for an extra charge. The crab cake salad is definitely my favorite item on the menu. While $16 for a salad might seem like a lot, it’s worth it. The crab cake is a pretty substantial size, and sits atop a dense bed of greens and veggies. The tartar sauce served on the side really makes it. Be sure to ask for extra. The grilled salmon is cooked medium and served with wilted

spinach and a cauliflower truffle hash. By any standard it’s a generous portion of salmon, which is important for a balanced diet. For $18, it’s an enjoyable way to get your daily dose of omega-3 — a “good” fat that offers a host of health benefits when consumed regularly.

Wiley defeats SMU in debate Caleb wossen A&E Staff Writer Umphrey Lee room 241 brimmed with excitement Wednesday, Aug. 28 as a packed audience chattered about the upcoming debate. The debate, a passionate exchange of ideas and experiences between the SMU team and its rival Wiley College, impressed the crowd with cheers and “uh huuuuhs!”. Victory ultimately chose Wiley with a dominating 3-0. Dr. Ben Voth, director of debate at SMU, has other things on his mind than victory though. “Today, August 28th, is an important day to remember that words matter,” Dr. Voth said. The date he’s referring to commemorates the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, a battle for civil rights won by rhetoric. It’s also a chance to shine a light on one of Voth’s personal heroes – James L. Farmer, Jr. Many readers will recognize Farmer as the unsure teen prodigy played by Denzel Whitaker in the 2007 film “The Great Debaters.” The real Farmer played a critical role in the success of the Civil

Rights Movement. Among his achievements, Farmer created the Congress of Racial Equality and helped organize events like the freedom bus rides in the South. If Martin Luther King, Jr. is the “head” of the Civil Rights Movement, Farmer acted as its “hands and feet,” Voth said. “He did the key components that ended segregation in the United States.” Farmer’s longtime commitment to civil rights is remarkable, considering his start as the captain of the Wiley College debate team at 14. Farmer himself underscores the power of words to affect change. “If a person is going to change the world, they have to be a debater,” Voth said. Today, most debates occur online. Readers are likely familiar with the mud-slinging battlegrounds of comments sections. The key difference here is face time, something unavoidable for activists like Farmer. “There is something important about face-to-face and the word becoming flesh as opposed to the Internet,” Voth said. Debates like this one are hoped to inform and inspire young people

into engaging the world around them head-on. The topic of the debate — “America is faltering on MLK’s dream in 2013” — has already affected one person in the audience. “It kind of pissed me off to see where we are,” Jamal Mack, a junior studying civil entrepreneurship at Paul Quinn College, said. Controversies like the New York City “stop and frisk” law and the death of Travyon Martin motivate Mack to change the world. “It helps me work harder to accomplish the dream and make it a reality,” Mack said. Christopher Medina, director of forensics and QEP at Wiley College, is glad for another rewarding debate with SMU. “This was an amazing opportunity for discourse. A true celebration of where we’ve come,” Medina said. Medina, however, is quick to emphasize his team’s argument. “Our debaters are right,” Medina said. “We have not achieved the dream, and must continue to [fight for it].” This is the fourth debate between SMU and Wiley College. Their first debate occurred in 2009 on SMU’s campus.

Caleb wossen A&E Staff Writer Excited first-years packed the Martha Proctor Mack Grand Ballroom wall-to-wall to hear celebrated author Wes Moore speak last night. Dressed casually in a purple button-up and blue jeans, Moore gave off a calm confidence that drew people into his message. The celebrated author of “The Other Wes Moore” stressed the importance of creating opportunities for young people to succeed in life. For Moore, it’s up to this generation to open doors to achieve for the younger generation. “We are products of our expectations,” Moore said. Here, the author speaks from experience. Readers are familiar with Moore’s story – a rough childhood in Baltimore that almost doomed him had it not been for military school. Moore’s life excelled from here. Leaving military school as class president, the promising student graduated from Valley Forge Military Academy and College and Johns Hopkins

University in 1998 and 2001 with honors, respectively. While preparing to attend Oxford University for his Rhodes studies, Moore received the shock of his life. The Baltimore Sun ran an article congratulating the soon-to-be scholar for his achievement in 2000. The same publication also featured a story on a robber charged with murder. This man, also named Wes Moore, happened to grow up in the same neighborhood as his accomplished counterpart. Fascinated, Moore exchanged letters with the man. These exchanges evolved into visits, eventually leading to the book “The Other Wes Moore” released in 2010. Moore was clear that his “other’s” actions were reprehensible, and did not know what to make of him initially. Speaking in front of a captivated audience, Moore painted his other as a gifted, funny individual denied a better life by negative influences. There are young people similar to the convict Moore – bright, curious people who don’t have the opportunities others have. “Potential is universal, opportunity is not,” Moore said.

SMU first-year Virgil Hawkins agreed that opportunity is not always readily available. “But that doesn’t excuse Moore’s actions,” Hawkins, a mechanical engineering major, added. Still, opportunities are not enough. Vision must couple with a strong work ethic to succeed. SMU Assistant Provost Anthony Tillman agreed – youth need both vision and ethics to “overcome other people’s expectations.” Moore, who created STAND! to influence inner-city youth in Baltimore – challenged the audience to do more. The author insisted that 10 years from now, alumni will not worry about their grades. Instead, they’ll the face the question: “What did you do to make the world better?” Moore ended his speech with the notion that SMU is bigger than a diploma, that status does not excuse someone from trying to make a difference. “We as a society need to do a better job of showing we care,” Moore said. “The Other Wes Moore” is scheduled to hit the silver screen in 2013.

New networks, more options matthew costa Associate Sports Editor I find myself in a conundrum unlike any I’ve come across in my two and a half decades of life on this planet. I have no idea what to watch for my sports entertainment anymore. Options of the all-new Fox Sports 1, a reinvigorated NBC Sports (now featuring the English Premier League of Soccer) and ESPN have put my TV watching experience in turmoil unseen since Nickelodeon created a 24-hour network dedicated to SpongeBob Squarepants reruns. This honestly could not have come at a better time, regardless of my personal difficulties of watching each channel without flaws. Outside of Sportscenter, ESPN has become a bit of a laughing stock within the sporting community for not reporting real sports news. Constant tales and stories of a single athlete’s status, the central focus on major markets and loudmouth personalities have opened the door for other networks to steal the spotlight. Fox Sports 1 debuted less than two weeks ago and has been met with critical and personal acclaim for its witty hosts and ability to stick to the real information at all times. Meanwhile, NBC has been pushing its acquisition of English soccer with full force. After spending $250 million over a threeyear period on the giants across the pond, I couldn’t be happier with this competition.

With the World Cup in Brazil less than a year away, soccer coverage will be at an all-time high in the United States. NBC now owns the inside track after pushing Fox and ESPN off to the side for the time being. Each channel also holds the rights to certain times of American football games and different teams, which will be played up nonstop over the next year like we’ve never seen before. Even anchors and show hosts have been swapped around like owners and top picks on draft night. Former news and ESPN anchor Keith Olbermann has returned to yell more ferociously than the competition, while Fox and NBC pick the carcass of dead television programs. ESPN still has much to its credit, however, as it still stands as the default sports network across this country. You cannot hope to walk into a men’s barbershop or any restaurant that serves wings without coming across ESPN on more than one TV set. It must be said that the wind always blows hardest at the top of the mountain, and ESPN is definitely feeling a bit shaky on top of Mount Everest at the moment. The fresh ideas of each network need a little more time to flesh out, after all this only came to pass 13 days ago. But thankfully I have options galore, and as a proud American and capitalist, that’s all I ever wanted.

SMU fans cheer on the Mustangs in a game against TCU in 2011, when SMU recaptured the Iron Skillet, 40-33 in overtime.

Alcohol is not Ford Stadium the solution needs alcohol w. tucker keene Managing Editor Student attendance at SMU sporting events is pitiful. There are many reasons why this might be the case: lack of school spirit, lack of available parking for off campus students or maybe the football team just isn’t good enough to get people interested. It could be any of these; it could be all of these. I don’t know. But the one thing I am sure of is that a lack of alcohol at Ford Stadium is not why people don’t show up to games. That isn’t to say that adding alcohol to Ford Stadium wouldn’t increase attendance — it probably would. But there are better solutions, solutions that address the real issues behind the sparse attendance of football games, and bribing students with promises of cheap beer is not one such solution. First, most students aren’t of legal drinking age yet. Only seniors and about half of juniors would be able to partake legally. This wouldn’t solve the problem for first-years and sophomores, who are arguably the students who most need to be attracted to the games. Instilling a sense of school spirit in those newer students is what’s going to make them want to continue attending games and getting excited about games for years to come. Alcohol doesn’t create school spirit, nor is it an adequate substitute for school spirit. It is certainly naive of me to assume that only juniors and seniors would imbibe. Alcohol would probably attract plenty of first years and sophomores as well. But if there is one thing this school doesn’t need, it’s more underage drinking. From my personal experience in the seats of Ford Stadium, the amount of alcohol available on the Boulevard is clearly plenty. SMU students who prefer to watch our football team while drunk aren’t having any trouble doing that. If the problem is that the football team isn’t good enough to get people to want to show

up to the games, alcohol might appear an adequate solution. Alcohol is well known for its ability to make substandard things easier to consume. Whether that be Taco Bell, a 2/10 or a pitcher of Shiner Bock. If something isn’t good enough for sober consumption, it probably is good enough for drunk consumption. That being said, I’m not comfortable lumping in SMU’s football program with the likes of PBR and Whataburger. Alcohol might make a bad team more watchable, but what would it say about SMU to say that our football team is only watchable after a few drinks? Are we as a community OK with that? We shouldn’t be. What alcohol does is mask problems. Alcohol feels like a solution to depression, to bad breakups and to obnoxious relatives at family gatherings. But it doesn’t solve those problems. The same is true here. Alcohol may help treat the symptoms, but it doesn’t cure the systemic problems causing those symptoms. Self-medicating with beer won’t cure us of poorattendance-itis. We need real solutions. We need to build a stronger sense of community, we need to find a way to increase pride in our sports program and we need to get some school spirit. I don’t have any solutions to offer right now. That’s going to take some time, effort and serious thought. Bribing students with alcohol is not the answer we’re looking for. We need to keep looking. Ultimately, saying that alcohol is the only way to get students to show up to a football game is to admit defeat. To admit that SMU has no school spirit and to admit that our football team isn’t very good is to admit that we’ve given up trying to create a sense of community. I’m not ready to admit that. And I don’t think anyone else on campus should be either. Keene is a senior majoring in political science, ecomomics and public policy.

zane cavender Contributing Writer We need booze in Ford Stadium. There, I said it. Maybe you just gasped, or maybe the reader next to you just passed clean out. Alcohol? At a football game? How absurd! But before I’m lacerated by a soft-drinkwielding mob, allow me to explain my reasoning. It’s a scorching Saturday in September. You left the shade of a tent on the Boulevard to watch your Mustangs battle. As the sun beats down upon Ford Stadium, all you want is a refreshingly cold beer to quench your thirst and momentarily forget you’re sweating through your button-down. But you can’t have one. Why? Because you’re told that football and alcohol are separable. Really? That’s like saying the Earth is flat, Texas is cold or Park n’ Pony is friendly. When’s the last time a bunch of football fanatics sat around with brats, burgers and a diet coke with light ice? When’s the last time you asked your buddy to grab a Snapple on the way over for “Saturday Night Football?” You didn’t, because you’re a true American football fan. It’s time we watch our Mustangs in our home stadium with our frothy friend in hand. But wait. Beer flowing from the rafters will send the wrong image, right? After all, alcohol doesn’t exist on college campuses, or up in the stadium box suites, or at the Boulevard a block over, or in students’ dorm rooms across campus or in students’ apartments across Hillcrest. You get my point. Just as the Boulevard maintains a healthy balance between civility and socialization, imbibing students in Ford Stadium would observe the same parameters. Rules would still apply, and the law would be enforced. The sky would not fall, morals would not be lost, and chaos would not ensue. The NCAA remains mute on alcohol sales in college stadiums, so many peer institutions have moved toward these progressive

changes. Heard of any lawless, violent riots in college stadiums recently? I thought not. But why can’t we woo throngs of Mustang supporters into Ford with new music or shoot off some more fireworks? While this could work in the long run, why not focus on increasing student attendance immediately to pump up the positive vibes? We all know SMU school spirit is abysmal. I’ve seen cemeteries with more pep. Suffering from severe bouts of Boulevard withdrawals by halftime, a fed up student section bolts for the exit. Whereas the bars and restaurants in the area absorb the mass exodus of croakies and Ray Bans, Ford Stadium is left high and dry with two or three cheering fans sipping their Mountain Dew. Surgery has more appeal. Why not make leaving at half-time a thing of the past? Sounds logical to me. Think about it: beer sales in Ford Stadium mean you can nurse your hops and barley in the comfort of your own seat. Ford’s suite level permits alcohol already. Why not pay the license cost and bring that down a step for everyone? Aside from the obvious cost benefits of sales and alcohol advertisements (everyone loves more money, right?), it would bring people in rather than push them out. Plus, on the success side of football (which we all love and hold dear to our hearts) West Virginia’s program turned around after beer sales opened up the school’s coffers. Let’s tap into the revenue that more and more schools are seeing, and absorb the benefits of having a packed and rowdy stadium. Beyond sheer rationality, common sense, and American football tradition, we have a real opportunity to radically change our football scene by finding inventive ways to get students and fans into Ford Stadium and getting them to stay there. It’s simple: fill the Ford, all the way up please. Cavender is a senior majoring in political science.

SMU NEWS faces No. 1 Manziel recieves slap on wrist from NCAA Indiana on road TheDailyCampus

The punishment brought down upon Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is down right laughable. On Wednesday, the NCAA and Texas A&M announced that quarterback Johnny Manziel will be suspended for one half of a football game.

Samuel Snow Contributing Writer


After finishing 1-0-1 in the preseason, the SMU men’s soccer team will travel up to Bloomington, Ind. for the Adidas/IU Credit Union Classic. There, the team will take on the hometown Indiana Hoosiers and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Mustangs, unranked, will face early competition as the Hoosiers are ranked No. 1 overall and the Fighting Irish are ranked No. 7. On Friday, Aug. 30 SMU plays its season debut versus Indiana, whom they own a 3-2-2 all-time record against, at 6:30 p.m. The last time these two teams played was in 2006, and the Mustangs came away with a 1-0 victory. After losing their top offensive performer Tyler Engel, SMU will look to RS junior Damian Rosales, a midfielder/defender honored with a unanimous selection for the American Athletic Conference Preseason All-Conference Team, to pick up the slack. Indiana faces a similar situation after the loss of Eriq Zavaleta. Nikita Kotlov, a senior midfielder, will now be relied upon for leadership and performance. After their match against the


Let’s look at what Manziel did and compare it to a local professional athlete who also received a suspension while in college. In 2009, Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant was ruled ineligible for the entirety of the season for lying to NCAA investigators. I do not condone lying, Dez should have told the truth. However, Bryant was suspected of having visited Deion Sanders’ home for a workout and having lunch with the former NFL corner back. Bryant violated NCAA bylaw 10.1 which means: don’t lie to NCAA. Look at it this way: Bryant missed an entire season for lying. Manziel is missing out on one half of football because he is a better liar than Bryant, and has convinced the NCAA that he is stupid. Let’s all take a moment and applaud NCAA for their outstanding job in handling the Manziel autograph incident. We should also applaud them for bringing down the hammer with the half-game suspension and preventing other athletes from making the same mistake ever again. A&M has started the 2013 season 1-0 and has yet to take the field.

That is not a typo.

Demetrio Teniente Sports Editor

You read correctly. One half. “NCAA rules are clear that student-athletes may not accept money for items they sign,� the NCAA said in a joint statement. “And based on information provided by Manziel, that did not happen in this case.� If he wasn’t guilty, why suspend him at all? The suspension comes down, because while there is no evidence that Manziel received any money, he still managed to violate NCAA bylaw That fancy mumbo jumbo means: student athletes cannot give permission to vendors or advertisers to use their name or receive payment for the use of their name. We are to understand that Manziel signed thousands of autographs for select “fans� and was completely ignorant to the

Hoosiers on Friday, the Mustangs will take a day off and open up September with a Sunday match against Notre Dame at 10:30 a.m. SMU is 2-1-1 all-time against Notre Dame, but lost the last meeting 4-1 in 2005. The Fighting Irish, having lost their top player Ryan Finley to the majors, will lean on their next two top performers from last year. Harrison Shipp (six goals and six assists in 2012) and Patrick Hodan (six goals and five assists in 2012)

will surely be looking to put the pressure on SMU’s Jaime Ibarra. In 2012, Ibarra was the Conference USA Player of the Year, the Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year and a First Team All-Conference USA selection. He’ll be aiming to repeat that performance this year. After the Adidas/IU Credit Union Classic, the Mustangs will head to a Tulsa tournament to face off against SIUE on Sept. 6 and Ohio State on Sept. 8.

idea that these “fans� might sell these autographs. Lets say Johnny works for Coca-Cola. He moves up the ranks fast and is trusted with the secret formula. He then shares this 127-year-old formula to Dr Pepper Snapple Group. Coca-Cola comes down and says, “Johnny, what are you doing? You can’t give them the formula!� Johnny says, “Sorry, my bad, I didn’t know that was frowned upon. If I had known they would use the formula to profit, I wouldn’t have given it to them.� To which Coca-cola says, “That’s okay, Johnny, but we are going to have to take away your parking space. We hope this is okay with you.� Does it sound like this pretend Coca-Cola is pretty stupid? Good, that’s the point.
