St. Paul’s church raises one-third of $24 million needed to redesign By Melissa Howison the daily cardinal

A scheduled redesign of St. Paul’s University Catholic Church, across from Memorial Library, could add to the construction Library Mall and the 700 and 800 blocks of State Street are slated to undergo in the coming years. Individual, private donors have already donated nearly $8 million to fund the project,

which is about one-third of the church’s $24 million total fundraising goal, according to the Rev. Eric Nielsen. St. Paul’s staff secured all the necessary city approvals to demolish and rebuild the cathedral, located at 723 State Street, in March 2011, and are only waiting to collect the remaining funds before moving forward with the project. Nielsen said, consid-

Goldberg values research outside state boundaries the daily cardinal

After studying in Uganda for over 20 years, University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine professor Tony Goldberg believes not all research that will benefit Wisconsin can be accomplished within state boundaries. Goldberg, who runs the namesake of UW-Madison’s Goldberg Lab, conducts research on infectious diseases, epidemiology, ecology and evolution in natural populations. Goldberg said he is most interested in diseases that are shared between people and animals, such as West Nile virus, Lyme disease and E. coli. Goldberg said his research on human-induced changes to tropical ecosystems for the

Kibale National Park has been his favorite endeavor. The project’s team works to understand how human-induced changes to tropical ecosystems alter health-related outcomes and infectious diseases. He added the site is a great example of how biodiversity, human disease, globalization, human economic development and other factors collide in a small place. For example, he has watched the glaciers on top of nearby mountains begin to disappear throughout his time in Uganda. “When you’re in these vulnerable areas, these ecologically delicate places, you can see this stuff happening before your eyes… the pace of change is palpable there,” Goldberg said.

ering the current momentum of church organizers’ fundraising efforts, St. Paul’s is likely still about two years away from demolition. Church administrators decided a few years back to redesign the church in addition to updating the dilapidating structure, according to Nielsen.

Gov. Scott Walker signed a $100 million property tax relief bill into law Sunday only 10 days after he initially announced the legislation. Walker said the bill will lower property taxes over the next two years using the approximately $7 million surplus the state has collected, and 2013 will mark the third straight year of lowered property tax rates. Walker tweeted he signed the bill at a local farm outside Burlington at approximately 3:30 p.m. “It is outstanding to see Republicans and Democrats in the Assembly come together, like their colleagues in the Senate, to pass meaningful property tax relief for Wisconsin families, farmers, seniors, and small businesses,” Walker said in a statement Thursday after the state Assembly approved the bill. Rep. Janet Bewley, D-Ashland, said in a statement Friday people shouldn’t be “fooled” by the prop-

off the cuff heartfelt without succumbing to the pratfalls of over thought twee. The rock songs rollick (“So Says I”) or tremble (“Turn a Square”) or careen (“Fighting in a Sack”) with their own gaits. Lines pop out and surprise without seeming like they were engineered for surprise. Lines like “Called to see if your back/Was still aligned and your sheets /Were growing grass/All on the corners of your bed,” from “Kissing the Lipless.” Lines like “Since then it’s been a book/You read in reverse/ So you understand less as the pages turn,” from “Pink Bullets.” Not the gold standard of lyricism, but a touch better than most. The tenor of Chutes Too Narrow is hard to sum up. Sad? Some parts of it. Joyful? Yeah, patches. Mournful? Maybe that one song. That amorphousness is what sums up its autumnal qualities. Autumn is a crucible of the seasons, emotions, antipodes, life. Whether, in the end, you end up with some useful alloy or useless scoria depends on your sensibilities. Some people like things static. Others prefer some sort of dynamism. For me, that’s what autumn is: dynamism. And Chutes Too Narrow exemplifies autumnal dynamism.

it to things like “the autumn wind” or “the autumn leaves.” It’s fair to say that autumn can be used to describe music as well. After all, the commingling of warm and cold days without descent into some wan tepidity, the smell of leaves and the feel of walking across beds of them, are singularly evocative in these temperate climes. It follows that an “autumnal album” would evoke similar feelings—the fraught balance between antipodes. Of all albums that may be termed “autumnal,” Chutes Too Narrow by The Shins ranks high on my list of favorites. It was one of the first albums I ever bought and it is one which I have kept returning to. I am not an avowed Shins fan. Oh, Inverted World glimmers with blotches of incandescence, but is otherwise anemic from the harrows of hype—dam of the devil. Wincing the Night Away fares better, without the encumbrance of songs like “New Slang” or “Caring is Creepy.” Port of Morrow is, um, Port of Morrow. Chutes Too Narrow, on the other hand, is so consistently great that I wonder how Mercer and co. managed it. It’s like Oh, Inverted World without all the bedroom pellucidities. It’s like Wincing the Night Away without all the generalized weight. Mercer and co. found a pretty perfect ideal between sparse performance and the over ponderous—intellectual antipodes. Songs like “Kissing the Lipless,” “Saint Simon” and “Pink Bullets” have an oneiric quality which is not well matched in The Shins canon—evocative and

The Daily Cardinal

DJ Rashad has been on the forefront of Chicago’s footwork scene since the beginning of the new millennium. “Footwork” is a dance movement characterized by quick steps and ghetto house music, also known as

juke music. The tracks off DJ Rashad’s latest album, Double Cup, are considered to be juke trax, a term used to describe songs that are categorized under this distinct style. Double Cup interweaves heavy percussion through 808 and 909 drum kits with explicit and lewd language in order to meet the demands of the Chicago footwork scene. Double Cup is the work of a surgeon. DJ Rashad meticulously cuts in and out of tracks, yet maintains a constant and heavy pulsating bass throughout the entire album. The best

examples of this precise technique can be heard in songs like “I Don’t Give a Fuck,” and “Only One.” These songs embody some similar characteristics used by other experimental electronic artists such as Flying Lotus. DJ Rashad’s versatile style, however, is best exemplified by the eighth and thirteenth tracks of the EP. The eighth track, “Double Cup,” begins in a conventional juke manner; with a hard-hitting snare, kick and hi-hat loop. The interlude breaks down the tempo but picks back up spontaneously,

like an unstable heart. “Let U No,” the eleventh track starts off slower than the rest of the album and incorporates more melodic vocals. Currently on tour with popular artist Chance the Rapper, DJ Rashad’s frenzied techno and bass heavy tracks have reached a new audience outside of the Chicago footwork and juke movement. Often called “intelligent dance music,” DJ Rashad has transformed and tailored juke music into a genius genre for the masses.

news City officials seek input to improve local park

UW schools apply for Incentive Grants University of Wisconsin System institutions submitted over $75 million in grant proposals to a fund designated to aid economic and workplace development and college affordability, according to a statement released Friday. The program allows for $22.5 million total in project funding. The Board of Regents approved a resolution at a Sept. 5 meeting to fund the program using money from 2012-’13 tuition balances. These large balances have been a source of controversy, and many state legislators criticized them earlier this year.

Madison’s chief public parks officials will listen to community members at an input-gathering session Wednesday about ways to improve James Madison Park, according to a city news release. The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Verex Plaza, located at 150 E. Gilman St., in the Level B Conference Room. Staff on the city’s Parks Division will present information and discuss with attendees potential improvements to James Madison Park, which sits adjacent to the downtown area, just north of the square along East Gorham Street, and borders Lake Mendota.

Sadly, few of my constituents in Northern Wisconsin will get enough to buy a cup of coffee.” Rep. Warren Petryk, R-Elva, released a statement saying the Republican Legislature and Walker have worked “diligently” since 2011 to build up the surplus, part of which will fund the property tax relief bill. “After all our hard work and tough decisions over the past few years, we can start giving back to Wisconsin citizens,” Petryk said in the statement. —Sarah Olson

In total, UW System institutions submitted 56 Incentive Grant proposals. There was no minimum or maximum level of funding they could request. Examples of proposals could include programs aimed at growing existing businesses, increasing the number of degrees in high-demand fields and boosting opportunities for high school students to earn college credits, according to the statement. Leaders from business, industry and economic development programs will choose which grants to allocate. The decisions will be announced in November.

Resnick said although the city cannot afford to pass all 31 amendments alders offered, he is “fairly confident” the Metro Transit one will be approved. According to Resnick, the proposed amendments, totaling approximately $630,000, would overshoot the budget levy by about $290,000 if accepted. Therefore, Resnick said the Board of Estimates and city Council will have to make some “difficult” decisions to reject certain amendments before voting on the budget in November.

The state Senate Committee on Natural Resources is currently debating a bill that would forbid the use of dogs in wolf hunts in Wisconsin. Wisconsin is currently the only state that allows the use of dogs during a wolf hunt, according to a statement Sen. Fred Risser, D-Madison, released Friday. The use of dogs while pursuing wolves has caused contention in the state due to concerns

about dogs’ welfare. Currently, state law allows for hunters to be compensated for the cost of a dog killed during a hunt. “Since June of this year alone, 26 dogs have been killed by wolves and an estimated $65,000 can be expected to be paid to the owners of these dogs as compensation,” Risser said in the statement. “In my view, this is not the best use of tax dollars.” The bill is not yet scheduled for a hearing in the state Senate.

State Assembly votes to expand Wis. crossbow hunting

st. paul’s from page 1

The state Assembly voted Thursday to expand the use of crossbows in Wisconsin deer hunting. The bill first passed in June with a unanimous vote in the state Assembly and the state Senate amended the bill in October, according to the statement. State Rep. Mary Czaja, R-Irma, said in a statement the bill would help promote hunting by removing some

current age and disability restrictions on the use of crossbows. “Crossbows can encourage entire new groups of hunters to become involved; including women, the disabled, and both young and aging hunters,” Czaja said in the statement. The bill would also create a crossbow season that would run concurrent to the archery deer hunting season, which

runs Sept. 14 through Nov. 21 and Nov. 23 through Jan. 9, 2014. Rep. Chris Danou, D-Trempealeau, one the bill’s main sponsors, said in a statement the bill was unique for the widespread support it received by both parties in the Assembly. The bill will go to Gov. Scott Walker’s desk and is likely to be signed into law.

his nose following a visit to Uganda. After pulling out the tick, he conducted DNA sequences on it and realized his results were not part of any known database. He said he is unsure whether it is a new species of tick or if it is a previously categorized species with unknown genetics. He added the interesting part of the story is that by using digital photographs of the chimpanzees, the researchers were able to look up the chimps’ noses to see 20

percent of them had ticks at the same time he did. Goldberg says his research shows scientists still have a lot to learn about disease transmission in nature. “We’re thinking that they’re actually a specialized ape tick, and they’re going in the nose to avoid being groomed off,” Goldberg said. “It shows you vectors like ticks, and maybe pathogens are very clever in an evolutionary sense in how they avoid host defenses.”

“The current facilities right now are old and falling apart, and no longer meet our programming needs,” Nielsen said. “And the church especially just doesn’t appeal anymore to college students.” St. Paul’s, which serves as the Newman Center for the University of WisconsinMadison, dually functions as a gathering space for several independent student groups, including Habitat for Humanity. Nielsen said St. Paul’s will operate out of temporary facilities during construction, where masses and daily functions of the church will be conducted. University groups will be offered space in the interim location, which has yet to be determined, for the duration of construction if the space allows.

Additionally, Goldberg compared the idea of accessing information outside of Wisconsin borders to understand processes within the state to the “war on terror.” “We can wait here for diseases to strike us, or we can go out and focus on diseases before they hit our borders,” Goldberg said. Recently, Goldberg received national attention because he found a tick inside

The city approvals St. Paul’s previously obtained that authorize demolition and rebuilding of the church expire in February 2017. However, Nielsen said he is confident the church will be able to raise the necessary funds before the city deadline. “I think things are going well,” Nielsen said. “We’re still excited about it so hopefully, if the economy doesn’t go bad on us, we’ll be able to get the money soon and hopefully break ground.”

The Dirty Bird

sex and the student body

A ‘buddy’-ing romance: breaking out of the friend-zone Alex tucker sex columnist Dear Alex, I’ve been in the friend-zone for a while. A long while. How do I make the move with that special someone if I am constantly consoling her about douche-bag guys? Help!

A

tricky situation indeed, my friend, and one that many of us grapple with now and again. First, let’s clarify: What is the “friend-zone?” (And why is it “misspelled” on Microsoft Word? Fools!) The Urban Dictionary definition was unsatisfactory, so here’s my version, which includes elements of many definitions with a little Alex spice! Observe: The seventh level of hell in which we, after having failed to impress someone romantically, watch them enter into a series of bad relationships and allow that person to cry on our shoulders because then they are touching us. Which is nice. Let’s look on the bright side: Being in the friend-zone at least

implies we’re friends with that special someone. Although the two of us have yet to expulse frisky pheromones together, we at least have the honor of spending time with our potential partner. If this person is so particularly perfect to us, perhaps it would be pictureperfect to stay put in the pal precinct. SO MANY P’S. Penis. Alex, cut the crap. Phine. Although my points above are certainly pertinent, I understand that staying in the friend-zone is not ideal. So let’s break it down. This person obviously trusts us and has allowed us into their life. What’s holding them back from wanting to take the next step with us? There are many possible reasons, and some of them are out of our control. It could be that the “zoner”—as we’ll refer to the person you hope to make the moves on—is drawn to a “category” of person we don’t fit into for reasons that are difficult for anyone to articulate. In fact, the zoner may not understand themselves. If they always end up in bad relationships, it could be that our friend isn’t at a point where they can handle something serious. They could be frightened of the commitment that dating us—some-

one who they respect and actually like—comes with. It may be easier to ignore emotions and make rash decisions just to avoid having to introspectively analyze their own wants and needs.

The moral of the story? Take risks. Similarly, our buddy-turnedtorturer could have the undeniable claim that they are simply not attracted to us. While this seems elementary, sexual chemistry is important to relationships, and although we sometimes wish we could change who we find smokin’ hot, it’s not always possible. This is nobody’s fault; it’s just a fact of nature and a contributing factor in relationships. However, if we haven’t tried, how do we know that any of these supposed factors even apply to our specific cases of

zoning? Communication is key. Communication is key. Communication is… what? I’m a broken record! Why? Because communication is always key, no matter what topic we’re covering! So talk, people! If we’re unsure about our friend’s feelings, ask them how they feel! I don’t care how many times they’ve said, “You’re such a good friend.” The only way to be sure is by sharing with them how we feel and requesting they share their feelings in return. Now, this is probably one of the most difficult mountains we have to climb for love. After all, if our best friend suddenly becomes a person in our pasts, we not only feel rejected, we also have to fill all of the extra time we would’ve spent with that person with meaningless tasks to keep from thinking about them. And that can suck! However, instead of thinking like that, imagine if your special someone becomes even more special! The moral of the story? Take risks. The payoff of a huge risk is monumental, and while the downfall of an unsuccessful attempt can feel overwhelmingly sad, the possible high is worth the potential low. That is certainly a matter

of personal preference, but let me tell ya! Experiencing those moments of elation, especially with someone you care about, creates memories and experiences that have the potential to stick with you forever. Besides, if this person is really crushing our soul by staying friends with us, maybe our goal should be along the lines of “girlfriend or bust.” The friend-zone may just not be worth the emotional turmoil. I realize this assertion is extreme. I therefore encourage everyone to take little risks, maybe one each day or even each week, to warm up to the idea of a bigger risk. These can be miniscule, maybe talking to the person sitting next to you in lecture or even the person holding the door open for extra people on the way into College Library. Exercising our ability to push ourselves can make a huge difference when it comes to confidence and especially admitting our feelings! We should be able to work ourselves up to it, and by doing so we’ll either save ourself from a dire situation or create a blue heaven for ourselves and our new boo.

opinion Religion has no place in party politics dailycardinal.com

jeff birnkrant opinion columnist

T

o hear my country was a Christian nation from the beginning and that the Founders intended it to be so forever is utterly ridiculous. Politicians say these things in order to keep their people happy. However, I doubt they are their own personal religious standards. And to every other person who is not of that faith, you are basically cut out of the picture. Many issues return to our own misunderstanding of our country’s founding principles. Yes, freedom of religion is virtually rule number one. However, the hate that has been instilled amongst people who follow different religions or no religion at all is even more graspable in some cases than in past times. Republicans saying

what they need to in order to obtain or keep votes instead of saying something that is factually accurate is not OK, but what else is new? This issue strikes a deep cord with me because so many people are not informed about the topic and make such rash generalizations and conclusions. 

When religious beliefs trickle down onto these laws and rights, everyone bears the burden of what the results are.

I quote former presidential candidate John McCain when he said, “I just have to say in all candor that since this nation was

founded primarily on Christian principles, personally, I prefer someone who has a grounding in my faith.” This was in 2007, right on track with his political campaign. Now, I offer some other quotes that I find much more “grounding” in terms of my own beliefs. John Adams, while signing the Treaty of Tripoli added, “The Government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion.” Thomas Jefferson also notes, “I am for freedom of religion and against all maneuvers to bring about a legal ascendancy of one sect over another.” And for one final nail in the coffin on this issue, our famed Benjamin Franklin has said, “Lighthouses are more useful than churches.” Now my point isn’t to bash religion, it is just to make more clear what the founding fathers of this country thought of religion and

Monday, October 21, 2013

that Christianity wasn’t what they were thinking about when clearly separating church and state.  The point I want to make here is that so many of our principles and policies were guided by the morality of certain religions and that is extremely detrimental. Issues such as abortion policy, climate change, drug offenses, LGBT rights, and worst of all, foreign policy are unfortunately guided by certain religious principles.

The freedom of religion should be respected and that should be it.

When religious beliefs trickle down onto these laws and rights, everyone bears the burden of what

the results are. To tell someone it’s not God’s way for someone to get an abortion deserves a look in the mirror because who gave them the ability to judge? It wasn’t God, I can tell you that. The freedom of religion should be respected, and that should be it. Our country is divided along such polarized lines that they cross into people’s religious and political beliefs, which is entirely against the nature in which this nation was founded. My hope is that Washington D.C. can become blind to religion and follow the secular government that was designed for them in the first place. So before John McCain or Chris Christie takes the stage next, he should truly ask himself, is this Gods’ country, or our country? Do you think the government should remain secular or that religion should be a part of policy? Please send all feedback to opinion@ dailycardinal.com.

Raising debt ceiling should be solely presidential power spencer lindsay opinion columnist

T

his week Congress agreed to a deal to avoid economic self-destruction. President Barack Obama signed the deal within minutes of reaching the debt ceiling. Unfortunately, this deal did not include any measures to prevent Congress from imposing a self-inflicted wound yet again; it was simply a short term fix that punted the problem down the road until January. The debt-ceiling fight wasn’t even pushed back until after the midterm elections. Meeting the debt ceiling would have been unprecedented and dangerous. Because Congress has toyed with the dangerous notion of not raising the debt ceiling, the power to raise it should be unilaterally placed in the president’s power. No one quite knows how reaching the debt cap set by the debt ceiling would play out. Statutory law would place the executive branch in an odd position in which it would be legally obligated to pay congressional outlays, but it would be illegal to do so. It is possible the president could simply ignore the debt ceiling and go about business as usual. It is also possible that reaching the debt ceiling would force government spending to end and wreak unimaginable havoc on the economy. Some feel that the most likely outcome is that the treasury would be able to prioritize payments, meaning it would have to cut spending by 32 percent. This would likely impact a wide variety of government services including FEMA, veterans benefits, the FBI and federal courts. A 32 percent reduction in government spending would reduce GDP by 5.4 percent. To put this number into perspective, GDP fell 3.4 percent over the great recession. A self-inflicted 5 percent reduction in GDP would be unfathomably irresponsible. Unemployment would spike, the stock market would crash, and we would immediately find ourselves in the midst of another deep and painful recession. Because this Congress has proven that legislators can be immature enough to threaten self-inflicted

recessions for political reasons, the ability to do so should be taken away from them.  If the United States does not honor its full faith and credit, it would lose some credibility that it could never gain back. After the funny business that has surrounded raising the debt ceiling over the past two years, it is reasonable to be somewhat skeptical of once safe investments in the US government. This skepticism may cause an increase in interest rates on the national debt. Moody’s Analytic Corporation punished Congress’

incompetence by lowering the U.S.’ credit rating after the first time raising the debt ceiling became an uncertainty in the summer of 2012. If Congress continues to play games with the economy, we will lose credibility and pay for our errors. The unilateral power to raise the debt ceiling should be invested in the president. Congress is slow by design. Congress members are elected to serve their district and are accountable only to their constituents. The president is accountable to the entire country and would be held responsible for such

debauchery. This would not be an expansion of executive power. For most of our American history, votes on the debt ceiling have been a mere formality. Raising the debt ceiling doesn’t authorize any new spending, it merely allows us to spend what has already been budgeted and allows the government to uphold the obligation it already has. Because Congress has proven its institutional flaws are too great to handle, the responsibility of raising the debt ceiling, the power should be vested solely in the executive branch. 

We cannot have this fight again come January. It has already damaged our economy. Our credit rating was lowered the first time we had this fight. Between Sept. 18 and Oct. 16 the stock market was vulnerable due to uncertainty in Washington. The prospect of a self-inflicted recession is stupid and we should not do this to ourselves again. In order to avoid future uncertainty, the power to raise the debt ceiling should be taken out of the hands of congress and given to the president.

Down go the Spartans Wisconsin rebounds to upset No. 5 Michigan State By Andrew Tucker the daily cardinal

Badgers bounce back By Chris Bates the daily cardinal

The Wisconsin Women’s soccer team (4-3-1 Big Ten, 9-4-2 overall) took down conference foe Iowa (3-4-1, 11-4-1) in a physical match at the McClimon Soccer Complex Sunday afternoon. After a dramatic double overtime loss to Nebraska on Friday, this win was huge for the team. “It was definitely good to bounce back from the Friday game, Friday was a bit of a heartbreaker. So it’s good to get some confidence and it’s always good to get a Big Ten win,” said freshman midfielder Rose Lavelle. Coming into the game, the team knew scoring the first goal would be key, and they did just that with the Badgers striking in the 13th minute. Junior forward Cara Walls sent a pass into the box straight to senior midfielder Alev Kelter who finished it off with her third goal of the season. Coach Paula Wilkins said Kelter was the difference maker. “Alev today is playing like a senior. Iowa has a really good player in Alex Melin and I thought that Alev was in control and did well,” she said. The Hawkeyes however would respond just seconds after the break

with Iowa’s Bri Toelle scoring in the 46th minute. With the score knotted at 1-1, the game turned physical as is expected in a Big Ten match. In the 80th minute the Badgers’ constant pressure finally paid off with a header that went back post by Lavelle coming off of a cross by sophomore midfielder Kinley McNicoll. The defense then buckled down the last 10 minutes of the game, keeping the Hawkeyes from getting the equalizer they desired. This win was exactly what the team needed to regain their momentum from earlier in the year and finish of the season strong. With only three more games remaining before the Big Ten Tournament, the team needs to win out. “Now we’re just trying to get as many points as possible to get a better seeding in the tournament, so this was huge,” said Lavelle. “I don’t think we played our best, but I think we definitely fought through until the end and were able to stay focused and pull off the win.” “This win was huge because of the Big Ten ramifications and because of what happened on Friday,” Wilkins said. “I’m proud of the way they responded.” The Badgers return to action Oct. 24 when they host Minnesota.

Late goal downs Wisconsin By Blake Duffin the daily cardinal

The Wisconsin men’s soccer team (1-2-0 Big Ten, 9-3-1 overall) continued conference play Sunday, where they fell to Michigan (2-2-0, 6-4-3) in Ann Arbor. It would prove to be an even match early on. The game remained scoreless after the first half. The first Wolverine goal occurred at the 52 minute mark. After a misplay back to the keeper by the Wisconsin defense, Michigan forward James Murphy converted by stealing the ball and putting it in the back of the net. Just 11 minutes later, senior forward Nick Janus capitalized on a failed clearance by the Wolverines. Janus buried the unassisted goal to rally the Wisconsin offense. This was Janus’ seventh goal of the season, which leads the team. The game would remain a stalemate, until the 86th minute when Michigan delivered the dagger.

Senior midfielder Fabio Pereira connected on the outside with sophomore midfielder Colin McAtee. The midfielder carried the ball up the left side until he centered the ball to junior midfielder Tyler Arnone. He volleyed the ball passed UW freshman goalkeeper Casey Beyers. The late goal would prove to be too much for the Badgers to come back from, as Michigan took the conference win and now leads in the standings over Wisconsin. Despite the scoreline, UW outshot Michigan 15-12. They also more than doubled the Wolverine’s corner kick attempts. This loss marks Wisconsin’s first loss in the month of October. Their last lost took place on Sept. 29 when they lost to conference leading Penn State. UW will look to bounce back Wednesday night when they play UW-Milwaukee on the road. UWBadgers.com contributed to this report.

After being swept by No. 16 Michigan at home on Friday night, the Badger volleyball team was looking to bounce back against No. 5 Michigan State on Sunday. The Spartans (6-2 Big Ten, 17-3 overall) were coming off of their first conference loss of the year, on the road against No. 10 Minnesota. The Badgers (16-4 overall, 5-3 Big Ten) shocked Michigan State 3-1. This was the highest ranked team the Badgers have beaten since they beat No. 2 Penn State on Oct. 27, 2006. The first set started off with major score fluctuations, with six ties and two lead changes in the first half of the set. However, after that, MSU was in the zone from behind the service line, notching four aces to help them beat UW 25-20. “In the first set, they aced us four times, and it’s not like we passed poorly, they just got us with some great serves,” head coach Kelly Sheffield said. After more back and forth early in the second set, the Badgers went on a few big runs in the second. With the

score at 16-11, UW stopped the Spartans’ kills time and time again during a grinding point, and eventually senior Ellen Chapman got the kill that brought the Fieldhouse into an uproar. The Badgers ended up taking the second set 25-19. In the third, UW outblocked MSU 4-0 in a set where the Badgers took the lead at 7-6, and didn’t look back, winning 25-16. Wisconsin was outblocked for the game, but they created defense in other ways. Their big defensive key was great saves and digs by senior Annemarie Hickey, who had a season high 27 digs. “They’re a great hitting team, so we want to go in there with a defensive mentality. We just wanted to keep getting digs so that our hitters could hit. We did a great job of that today,” Hickey said. In the fourth set, MSU didn’t let Wisconsin go on big runs, but they still couldn’t stop the Badger offense, as Wisconsin iced the match with a 25-18 win. Executing in the serve/ receive game was huge for the Badgers in the win. In their first set loss they had four serve receiving errors, and in the next three sets that they won, they had just three receiving errors combined. In the first set, MSU had four aces to UW’s zero, but in the next three sets, the Badgers outaced them 4-2. “Serving was a key factor. We

were serving and serving, which was taking their hitters out of the game,” junior Courtney Thomas said. After looking sloppy against Michigan on Friday, the Badgers looked solid on offense, hitting for a higher percentage than their yearly average. They also had two players in double digits for kills, Thomas (10) and Chapman (14). While winning after a loss is a mental boost, that’s not the team’s main takeaway. “No matter what happens in the previous match, it’s going to feel good to execute a game plan against a talented team, and that’s a talented team we beat. Offensively they come at you as good as anybody,” Sheffield said. With the Badgers rolling throughout the game, everything seemed to be in sync. They were converting good digs to good sets, and sets to powerful kills. The team had a confidence on the court that outweighed the Spartans’ talent. “We were playing determined. Your opponent will make some adjustments, so you have to do a little of that as well, but keep doing what you’re doing is basically what I said in the breaks,” Sheffield said. This week, the Badgers continue their home-stand against No. 10 Minnesota (6-2, 18-3) on Wednesday. They have their final home game of this stretch on Sunday against Illinois (3-4, 7-10).

Firing on all cylinders Badgers cruise at Illinois to advance to 3-1 in the Big Ten By Rushad Machhi The Daily cardinal Courtney kessler/cardinal File photo

Bad luck in Beantown By Devin Lowe the daily cardinal

It was a tough weekend in Boston for the No. 2 Wisconsin Badgers (2-2-0 overall), who were handed two decisive losses by No. 7 Boston College (2-1-0) and No. 15 Boston University (3-1-0) in the team’s first road trip of the season. Wisconsin was beaten 9-2 by Boston College Friday on BC’s Jerry York Appreciation Night. The Badgers were again defeated Saturday night, as they kept pace with Boston University through the first period only to lose 7-3. Missing junior goaltender Joel Rumpel, who was injured in practice this week, the Badgers played junior goaltender Landon Peterson against Boston College. Peterson kept the Eagles scoreless through 10 minutes before allowing four goals within six minutes, two to freshman forward Austin Cangelosi and one to junior forward Johnny Gaudreau and freshman defenseman Ian McCoshen. “Our hope was to survive the first period and we didn’t,” head coach Mike Eaves said. “We fell into the trap of trying to make things happen and ended up making things worse.” Just 21 seconds into the second period, Wisconsin’s comeback attempt was halted by a goal from sophomore defenseman Michael Matheson. Less than two minutes later, freshman defenseman Scott Savage scored, sending Peterson to the bench and bringing the tally to 6-0. Sophomore goaltender Adam Miller entered the game in relief and held the Eagles at bay, but Boston College notched another goal midway through the second period, this time from junior forward Michael Sit. Wisconsin finally got on the board shortly after BC’s seventh goal with a goal by senior forward Michael Mersch, who redirected junior defenseman Jake McCabe’s shot from the point past BC’s junior goaltender Brian Billett. However, it didn’t take long for the Eagles to score again, as a goal from senior forward Kevin Hayes made it 8-1 early in the third period. Badger sophomore forward Nic Kerdiles then scored off a rebound from senior defenseman Joe Faust, extending his point streak to 15 games. His goal was spoiled by a final tally from BC’s senior forward Patrick Brown later in the frame, finalizing the score at 9-2. Boston College’s nine goals were the most the Badgers have allowed since Mike Eaves became

head coach in 2003. “We still feel like we’re a pretty decent team,” Eaves said. “As I told the boys after the game, the best part about tonight is that we get a chance to play tomorrow night [against Boston University].” Despite Eaves’ optimism, Saturday night was no better for the Badgers. Coming off of its loss to Boston College, Wisconsin played more aggressively in the first period against Boston University. The Terriers got on the board first with a powerplay goal from sophomore defenseman Ahti Oksanen, but McCabe followed with a powerplay goal of his own. The 1-1 game took a disheartening turn for the Badgers midway through the second period. Senior defenseman Garrett Noonan then put the Terriers ahead 2-1. Eighteen seconds later, freshman forward Robbie Baillargeon bested Peterson to extend Boston University’s lead to 3-1. Badger redshirt sophomore forward Keegan Meuer responded by putting one past Terriers sophomore goaltender Matt O’Connor a little over a minute later. Following Meuer’s goal, Nic Kerdiles, who extended his point streak to 16 games on McCabe’s first-period goal, was ejected from the game for illegal contact to the head. The Badgers killed off all but 20 seconds in the ensuing five-minute major, and Boston University went up 4-2 on a powerplay goal from sophomore defenseman Matt Grzelcyk. The Terriers’ lead continued to grow. BU’s sophomore forward Mike Moran notched a goal early in the third frame. The Badgers saw a glimmer of hope when a slapshot by senior forward Michael Mersch brought the score to within two, but Boston University went on to score two more goals, one from sophomore forward Matt Lane and the other from Cason Hohmann. The final score was 7-3 in favor of the Terriers. Wisconsin took 15 penalties and allowed 16 goals this weekend. However, one of the areas the Badgers improved in from Friday to Saturday was shots on goal. In its match against Boston College, Wisconsin managed only 19 shots to the Eagles’ 40. The Badgers outshot Boston University 43-26. The Badgers will have this weekend off and will face Lake Superior State at the Kohl Center Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. UWBadgers.com contributed to this report.

Third time’s the charm on the road for Gary Andersen and his Badgers (3-1 Big Ten, 5-2 overall). After losing two close road games earlier in the year to Arizona State and No. 4 Ohio State, No. 22 Wisconsin earned its first road win of the season by routing Illinois (0-2, 3-3) 56-32 in Champaign, Ill. The Badgers came out firing on all cylinders, building an early 21-0 lead in the first quarter. The Wisconsin defense on Illinois’ first three offensive possessions forced two punts and a fumble which lead to all three of Wisconsin’s early touchdowns. However, while on punt coverage, senior linebacker Chris Borland went down with a hamstring injury. The good news for Wisconsin is that it looks like he will be fine, especially with a bye week on the horizon, but the bad news is that after Borland hit the bench, Illinois exposed the Badgers’ defense. Borland’s replacement, junior linebacker Marcus Trotter, filled in admirably, recording a team high nine tackles, while the Badgers remained stout against

the run, holding the Fighting Illini to 72 yards on 29 carries. However, for most of the evening the Badgers had no answers for the Illini’s aerial attack, as Illinois senior quarterback Nate Scheelhaase and later his backup junior Reilly O’Toole combined for 319 yards on 26 completed passes. After the fast start, the Badgers let the Illini hang around for the rest of the half as Scheelhaase finally found a rhythm, as Illinois put up 17 points in the second quarter to make it 28-17. The Illini had no answers for the Badgers offense and their old school ground and pound attack featuring sophomore Melvin Gordon and senior James White, as Wisconsin essentially put Illinois away in the third quarter.

Gordon now has 1012 yards and 11 touchdowns for the year on 9.5 yards per carry.

On the first drive of the second half, the Badgers completed a bruising five minute, nine play drive that ended in sophomore quarterback Joel Stave tossing a three yard touchdown to White. After the defense forced three and out, the Badgers took over at their 44 yard line, and five plays later Gordon was celebrating in

the end zone to make it 42-17 at the end of three. White and freshman running back Corey Clement would later tack on two more rushing touchdowns in the fourth quarter to give the Badgers their final total of 56 points, highlighting another dominant day on the ground, where the Badgers racked up 289 total yards and six rushing touchdowns. Gordon accounted for 142 of those yards and three touchdowns as he had another masterful day making Illini defenders miss all over the field. Gordon now has 1,012 yards and 11 touchdowns for the year on 9.5 yards per carry. Stave complemented the running attack well with another efficient passing day. He completed over 76 percent of his passes and added two more red zone touchdowns. Those two touchdowns add to Stave’s mastery of the red zone, where he now has nine touchdowns to zero interceptions. Senior wide receiver Jared Abbrederis, who suffered his own head scare last weekend against Northwestern, returned to the field against the Illini and continued to be Stave’s favorite target, catching eight passes for 106 yards, his third 100 yard game of the season. After dismantling the Illini, the Badgers get next weekend off, followed by a trip to Iowa to take on the Hawkeyes. UWBadgers.com contributed to this report.
