Fire uproots about 25 UW-Madison students
A structural fire at the Casa Blanca Apartments, located at 2302 University Ave., displaced approximately 50 University of Wisconsin-Madison students early Sunday morning, according to a news release. Madison Fire Department Spokesperson Lori Wirth said damages are still being calculated, and the cause of the fire remains unknown. She added more details will be released over the next few days. According to the release, all UW-Madison students were able to find temporary housing on their own, but the Red Cross assisted two non-students with
temporary housing needs. Residents in two of the building’s three wings were able to return to their homes, but residents of the remaining wing, where it is believed the fire started, will be relocated for the near future, according to the release. Dean of Students Lori Berquam estimated 20-25 students are permanently displaced from this wing of the building until reconstruction can be completed. Berquam was at the scene early Sunday morning to assist the displaced students and said it was important for her to be there to support the university.
“It’s one of the reasons we as UW-Madison are so unique,” Berquam said. “We’re a big place, but we have a big heart and we care about our students and have compassion for situations like this and try to have our students be as focused on academics and be as successful as possible in light of a situation like this.” Berquam added her office will be available throughout the week to assist students in whatever way they need and will be offering various services for those displaced by the fire. —Megan Stoebig
Walker signs two bills to benefit veterans Gov. Scott Walker signed two bills aiding Wisconsin veterans after the Capitol Veterans Day ceremony Friday, one of which gives student veterans priority in course registration at any University of Wisconsin System or technical college, according to a press release. Act 56 will give soldiers priority because they have difficulties registering for the classes they
need to advance their careers. “This legislation means [service members and veterans] have access to a quality education which can help propel their future,” Walker said in the release. The act will affect registration for students’ spring 2014 courses. Walker also signed Act 55, which offers Purple Heart
recipients in-state rates for hunting, fishing and trapping permits, regardless of where they live. According to a Department of Natural Resources press release, Wisconsin residents can save $155 on a conservation patron license and non-residents can save $439. Both bills passed with overwhelming bipartisan support.

The student organization VETS commemorates Veterans Day every year by reading the names of fallen soldiers aloud on Bascom Hill.
Jake Beebe serves as liaison between veteran and non-veteran students By Melissa Howison the daily cardinal
Using the sound of Veterans, Educators and Traditional Students’ members voices honoring fallen soldiers from atop Bascom Hill, Cpl. Jake Beebe strives to ensure University of Wisconsin-Madison students are reminded of American heroes as they walk to class this Veterans Day. Beebe, VETS president, said the memorial roll call, in which members call out the names of every soldier that has died fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan, is one of the organization’s largest annual events and the primary way traditional, or non-veteran, students get involved. Diversifying VETS’ membership is something Beebe said he aspires to this year by expanding the program to include more traditional students and changing the name of the organization from Vets for
Vets to its current title. “Most of us are the type of student veteran who went to the military after high school and then came back here, so we have a totally different experience it seems, of what college is,” he added. “And in order for us to connect better with the campus, we need people who are from that background, who came straight to college and know what it’s like to be like 95 percent of the students here.” Beebe, now a junior studying Russian and psychology, served four years as a corporal in the Marine Corps after enlisting somewhat impulsively following his high school graduation. “At the time, this was 2007, and the war in Iraq was in full swing. It was pretty bad and I looked around—there are 150 kids in my graduating

The state Supreme Court will hear arguments on the constitutionality of Act 10 for teachers and local government employees Monday. Act 10 is Gov. Scott Walker’s controversial legislation that limited many state workers’ collective bargaining rights. The legislation passed in June 2011 despite large protests and uproar in the state. Monday marks the second time Act 10 has reached the state Supreme Court, but this is the first time the court will consider
the legislation’s merits. In September 2012, a Dane County judge ruled key aspects of Act 10 unconstitutional, including a provision that requires unions to hold annual elections to maintain the ability to negotiate with their employers and a provision that prohibits the deduction of union dues from employee paychecks by government employees. After Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen appealed the decision, the state Supreme Court agreed to hear the case.
“…the great state University of Wisconsin should ever encourage that continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found.”

sex and the student body
Guide to sex toys, part I: Getting our ‘buzz’ on
Alex tucker sex columnist
n real life, my friends often ask me how to pick out their new favorite sex toy. I think it’s because they are all hysterical. (History joke, anyone? Buehler? [How often is she going to make that joke? SHUT UP, YOU KIDS.].) This week, we’ll talk about what to look for when we pick out our new toy!
Sex toys come in a variety of materials. Each has its own advantages and can provide different types of pleasure. Examples of materials: Hard plastic: This material comes in porous and nonporous varieties, so make sure to stay informed about how to properly clean the toy. Hard plastic can be a cheap alternative and perfect starter toy because it offers the durability of metal and glass without all the expense. Jelly/elastomer: This material is cheap to produce, meaning it’s not too expensive once it reaches shelves. They are hypoallergenic and contain no latex, so they’re gentle on skin. Elastomer is easy to clean, but is porous, so it’s important to use barrier methods when sharing these types of toys. Silicone: These toys are nonporous, hypoallergenic and easy to sterilize. They can be cleaned in the top rack of the dishwasher (tell your roommates first!) or by boiling in water. Silicone can be very firm or soft; we should choose the one we like best! Silicone toys CANNOT be used with silicone-based lube. They MUST be used with wateror oil-based lube, otherwise the enzymes that keep the silicone liquid will essentially melt the dildo (the same applies to all silicone toys). They can cost anywhere from $30-$100 (they are more expensive because of the type/amount of material use). Cyberskin: Also known as Soft Skin, Futurotic or UltraRealistic, this material feels just like skin and heats to skin when it’s touched or held. Cyberskin is very porous, so it may begin to look dirty once it has been used. Cyberskin cannot be sanitized, so barrier methods should be used during playtime. Glass: The kind of glass used for sex toys is also called pyrex. Pyrex is hypoallergenic, heat and chemical resistant and will not break or shatter. Because it is a non-porous material, pyrex can be sanitized by boiling, washing or utilizing rubbing alcohol. Glass toys can be expensive but should last forever if treated properly. Glass toys can be put into the fridge or a bowl of hot water to allow for temperature play. However, we should always do a “touch test” with our hands before inserting the toys into our body or playing with them elsewhere on our skin.
Metal: Metal toys offer a unique heaviness and are easy to disinfect. Like wooden and glass toys, metal toys can be expensive but will last forever. These toys also conduct hot and cold temperatures for temperature play. Any lube can be used with metal toys, so play away! Wood: Wooden toys offer the firmness of metal and glass toys but are less heavy. Wood toys are finished with waterbased sealant that makes them non-porous and easy to clean.
Dildos are toys that can be used for penetration in any form of intercourse. They can be used to stimulate the clitoris, prostate and G-spot. Before buying a dildo, it is important we think about how many fingers we like to have inside of us. We should try to gauge how many fingers we think a toy stimulates before making a potentially expensive purchase. Dildos come in different sizes, colors and textures. Cleaning (sterilization v. sanitization): To clean silicone, glass or metal dildos we can either simply wash them off with soap and water, boil them for three to five minutes or clean them in the top rack of the dishwasher in order to sterilize them. We can also use a solution of one part bleach to 10 parts water. Condoms can be used with dildos the same as we do vibrators.
Sixty percent of strap-ons are bought by heterosexual couples for women to use on male partners (pegging)!
Silicone can cost anywhere from $30-$100 (they are more expensive because of the type/ amount of material use). The different types of dildos include the following: Basic Dildo: These are usually a phallic shape that can be either “realistic” (i.e. include veins, glans or scrotum) or “abstract” (i.e. just a plain shaft). Double-ended Dildos: These dildos are doubledended so two partners can use them at once. They can also be used by somebody solo either by using one end to penetrate the anus and the other the vagina at the same time, or by using one end as a handle. This feature makes this a great toy if you want to have a good grip. “Banana” Dildo: It is great for people who would prefer a non-penile dildo. These come in a plethora of designs, from banana to dolphin. They are phallic without looking like penises and can look gentle and innocent. Harnesses (aka strap ons): Strap-ons come in a variety of sizes for a variety of uses that can be used for different people with differ-
ent needs. They can be used to turn traditionally receptive partners into insertive partners, for male-bodied people with erectile dysfunction or in the refractory stage, to be strapped around objects, etc. Some are harnesses, thigh straps, shorts, etc. According to Good Vibrations—a sex boutique in San Francisco—60 percent of strap-ons are purchased for heterosexual couples for women to use on male partners (pegging)!
These are vibrating toys that can be used externally and sometimes internally to stimulate the clitoris, vulva, perineum, penis and scrotum or any exposed skin. Vibrators can generally be categorized into two sensations: throbby and buzzy. Throbby vibrators have a less-rapid rhythm than their buzzy counterparts, which usually offer a constant vibration rather than an on-and-off beat. It’s important to know which sensation we prefer (if we have a preference at all) before investing in a new toy. Inexpensive versions of each are available for trial. If we find we like one more than the other, we can choose to upgrade whenever we want! While most vibrators are splashproof, meaning they can withstand regular bodily fluids, some are made to be completely waterproof, which allows the user to submerge them completely in water for use in the shower, bath or pool. Types of vibrators include: Slim Vibrators: Usually cheaper vibrators that can be great for starters and usually cost less than $25. They are made of hard plastic and often come with varying speeds from gentle to a stronger “buzzy” vibration. It can be used externally on the perineum, vulva and clitoris, testicles, and also vaginally. Soft Serve Vibrators:
Thicker vibrators similar to slim vibes in many ways. They cost about $20-$25 and are made of plastic. They can be used internally and externally, but should not be used for anal play. They are thicker than slim vibes and usually have a “throbby” vibration. Bullet (and Egg) Vibrators: These vibrators are small but pack a punch. They are made of metal or plastic and come in many different models and designs. Some have cords, some are cordless and some come with separate remote controls. Bullets should never be used internally. They often come with different accessories. “Duckie” Vibrators: Vibrators are available in nonphallic shapes as well. These include balls, lipstick containers, and of course our “duckie.” This is also a good idea if you need your toys to be discrete; if you live in a shared environment for example. Dual Vibrators: This vibrator was made famous on “Sex and the City” (one of the characters, Charlotte, purchases one and becomes addicted to it) and can be used both externally and internally. It’s primary function is to dually stimulate the G-spot and clitoris. The many different rotating beads and shapes provide different types of stimulation, particularly the first third of the vagina, which contains the most nerves. The smaller component on the outside can stimulate the clitoris (or perineum). The different components can be set to different speeds with different controls. This vibrator can be overwhelming for people new to the sensations, and is not recommended for first-time users. They cost anywhere from $25-$100 or more. Suggestions for Alex’s “part II” coming up next week? Email email@example.com to let her know!

Gameday citations remain consistent Underage drinking remained an issue at Saturday’s Badger home football game against Brigham Young University, although the game was notable for the decrease in the number of fans requiring medical attention. According to a release by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Police Department, 20 underage drinking citations were issued at the game, which is slightly higher than the average of 19.4 for home games this season. The highest preliminary breath

veterans from page 1 class—and ... nobody was going into the military,” Beebe said. “Everyone was going to college, and I thought that was weird considering that we were at war, so I don’t know, it’s hard to explain, but I thought somebody had to do it.” Upon his release, Beebe, then 22, said he drove to Madison and encountered a common challenge of new students when he realized he did not know anyone within 200 miles of his new home. But Beebe’s situation was unique in that he did not have a surefire way to meet people because he opted not to live in the residence halls for fear of being the “weird old guy” among the 18-year-old freshmen. However, it wasn’t until a veteran educational benefitsrelated question turned into a night at Wando’s that Beebe settled into the VETS organization. Originally, Beebe said he went to the office seeking advice, but later wound up attending one of the group’s bi-monthly socials at the downtown bar. From there he was

invited to a hockey game, which eventually led to more involvement with the program, albeit still on a more conveniencebased level. Then, at the end of last year, Beebe found himself a frontrunner to become the new president of the organization, and once again stepped up to meet an unfulfilled need. Although Beebe said the beginning of his presidency was “rough” due to funding issues with student government on top of his lack of prior managerial experience, “It’s going really well now.” He said he hopes to grow the program in addition to increasing educational outreach efforts and putting on more events this year, such as when the VETS stretched an American flag the length of the football field at Camp Randall Stadium, in what Beebe said was “the coolest thing this group has ever done.” Student Veterans of America also honored UW-Madison’s VETS as its chapter of the year in 2011. Beebe said he has not yet ruled out staying on for a second term before graduating in May 2015 and traveling, diploma in hand, to live abroad in Russia.

Madison’s 18th annual marathon and half-marathon attracted approximately 5,000 participants and many more spectators who flooded downtown Sunday.
UW students, charities among runners in 18th annual Madison marathon Sunday By Melissa Howison the daily cardinal
Madison’s Marathon attracts approximately 5,000 runners annually and the 18th annual event Sunday was no exception. Among the runners was University of Wisconsin-Madison sophomore accounting student Brandon Jaeger, who said he crossed the finish line in just under two hours, half an hour before his dad, in what was a great fatherson bonding experience. Jaeger said he felt “accomplished” after running his first half marathon and rewarded himself with post-race slice of pumpkin pie at a local coffee shop with his family. He said he hopes to continue running marathons in the future and eventually compete in an Ironman. Schedule permitting, Jaeger
said he trained about three to four days a week and preferred to run what he called the “bridges” course, which loops through Vilas Park and circles Lake Wingra before connecting back to campus by way of John Nolen Drive. Also in attendance Saturday was UW-Madison junior biology student Jake Perlson, who ran the full 26.2 miles in less than four hours. Perlson ran his first marathon in Monona last year but said he had more fun at Saturday’s event because the crowd was louder and he was running through familiar places. There was an “electric” moment running up the finish line at the Capitol, Perlson said, when the crowd was cheering and the music was pumping. Although he intends to continue his marathon-running career,
Perlson said he limits himself to one race per year because it is physically taxing. He has his sights set on Chicago next year. Perlson said he runs approximately 25 miles each week to train, which made the free beer marathon organizers provide for race participants this past weekend that much more enjoyable. His favorite training routes are the trails behind Picnic Point, which Perlson said make for a beautiful run this time of year. Several local charities showed up to raise money Saturday, including myTEAM TRIUMPH, a nation-wide organization that pairs athletes with disabled participants who race and cross the finish line together. The YWCA of Dane County and Badger Honor Flight also participated in the festivities Sunday.
US education test reveals racial achievement gap in Wis. Wisconsin fourth and eighth grade public school students performed at or above the national levels for reading and mathematics, according to a recent education assessment, but the assessment revealed persistent achievement gaps for students of racial minorities. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the results of the 2013 National Assessment of Educational Progress math and reading tests in a press release Monday. The assessment results showed achievement gaps between racial and ethnic groups, students with disabilities and English language learners, State Superintendent Tony Evers said in the release. “We must remain focused on our efforts to improve achievement for all students so they graduate ready for college and careers,” Evers said in the release. “This means continuing to implement our new, more rigorous academic standards and
our work in reading instruction.” State Rep. LaTonya Johnson said in a press release Friday Wisconsin has the widest achievement gap between black and white students in the nation. “[T]he root cause of this achievement gap is not a failing educational system—overall, Wisconsin’s fourth and eighth graders perform well nationally,” Johnson said in the release. “The cause is the instability brought on by decades of increasing poverty.” Rep. Mandela Barnes, D-Milwaukee, said the state’s achievement gap numbers were “awful” in a press release Thursday. “Wisconsin’s black students deserve better,” Barnes said in the release. “They deserve a government and leaders that provide for a robust educational experience where black students are too seen as an investment in our great state’s future, the economy, and workforce.” —Sarah Olson
Reports highlight research, innovation on campus A recently released University of WisconsinMadison report describes campus initiatives encouraging innovation, echoing an October U.S. Department of Commerce report that highlighted UW-Madison programs. The UW-Madison Office of Corporate Relations, which connects university resources to business and industry, compiled the 2012-’13 Campus Innovation Report. An introductory statement by Chancellor Rebecca Blank said the office has found ways to use university resources to strengthen the state’s economy and work with campus partners and the private sector. “In my new role as chancellor, it is gratifying to see innovation and entrepreneurship at
work in the classroom, the laboratory and the community,” Blank said in the statement. The report pointed to programs including FluGen, a company founded by UW-Madison scientists that has made headway in developing vaccines to protect against a wider range of flu strains. The U.S. Department of Commerce report, released in October, details how universities across the country are promoting innovation and entrepreneurship. It describes two events co-sponsored by the UW-Madison Office of Corporate Relations. The first program, the Entrepreneurial Deli, brings successful entrepreneurs to the campus to meet with students and talk about
the “secret sauce” of their success, according to a WiscEvents description. In addition, the office co-sponsors the 100-Hour Challenge, which the report describes as a competition where students purchase a product, change it and establish a website. Both reports lauded the work of the UW-Madison Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, a nonprofit group that grants money to support research at the university. The organization patents inventions arising from university research and licenses them to commercial companies. WARF then funnels profits back into university research purposes. —Tamar Myers

THE RECORD ROUTINE
Less Than Jake stagnate on new LP
See the Light Less Than Jake
By Carissa Szlosek The Daily Cardinal
Graphic by Chrystel paulson
Getting funky with Old Gregg Sean Reichard quip quo pro
ov. 11, 1620: The Mayflower Compact is signed. Nov. 11, 1831: Nat Turner is hanged for leading a slave rebellion. Nov. 11, 1885: George S. Patton, U.S. general, is born. Nov. 11, 1918: The armistice that ends fighting between Germany and Allies forces is signed. Nov. 11, 1922: Kurt Vonnegut is born. Nov. 11, 1978: Parliament releases Motor Booty Affair. This may seem like a strange thing to say, but Motor Booty Affair might be Old Gregg’s favorite Parliament album. For those of you who don’t know the reference, Old Gregg is a one off character from British television series “The Mighty Boosh.” Old Gregg, the hermaphroditic man fish with a Rick James stache and a tutu—a strange creature who subsists solely on Bailey’s and funk. Indeed, whatever Old Gregg might be, he’s funkier than you.
How funky is Motor Booty Affair? Well, it won’t help you see around corners, but it’s pretty damn funky and bound to leave you feeling effervescent.
By a stroke of luck—within “The Mighty Boosh” mythos— Old Gregg discovered The Funk, “a living creature about the size of a medicine ball… covered in teats” whose milk is the source of all things funky on planet Earth. Granted, Old Gregg probably never needed The Funk, not to become funky anyway; the funk dwelled in him always, which is the least you can say about a man fish with blinding genitalia. And yet, they found one another. As for the claim Motor Booty Affair is Old Gregg’s favorite Parliament album, most of it centers on the fact Motor Booty is structured around water motifs. The setting, as far as I can tell, is Atlantis, a magical
place where, “you can dance underwater and not get wet,” or so says lead single “Aqua Boogie (A P sychoalphadiscobetabioaquadoloop).” The comparison makes sense. If we look at the metaphysics of funk, we find that, as a force in the universe, it is inclined to flow, just as water is an element inclined to flow. Just look at this snippet from the titular “Mr. Wiggles.” He gets it: “From the ocean comes a notion/That the real eyes lies in rhythm/And the rhythm of vision is a dancer.” How funky is Motor Booty Affair? Well, it won’t help you see around corners, but it’s pretty damn funky and bound to leave you feeling effervescent. To impart a sense of the aqueous, the music is defined by sinuous piano lines, phosphorescent horns and lots of squiggling synth. The overall effect is painterly. You could say Motor Booty Affair is like superb watercolor. It’s a watercolor with purpose, for Motor Booty Affair is a continuation of the Parliament Funkadelic mythos, which first exploded on the scene with 1975’s Mothership Connection and was revisited on every subsequent album. On Motor Booty, there is no Dr. Funkenstein, but there is a cameo from Star Child, who is basically Funk Jesus from space. Star Child’s nemesis, Sir Nose D’Voidoffunk, is the most prominent P-Funk myth figure on Motor Booty Affair, along with Rumpofsteelskin (who gets his own song). The gist of the story on Motor Booty Affair is this: Sir Nose is too cool to swim or dance, so Mr. Wiggles and everyone in Atlantis drag him down underwater to make him dance the “Aqua Boogie.” After Sir Nose is placated, the Atlanteans use their cumulative funkiness to raise Atlantis from the ocean floor on the Motor Booty finale, “Deep.” One wonders how much the Atlanteans in Motor Booty Affair resemble Old Gregg. Perhaps they, too, have a penchant for Bailey’s and enjoy making crumble in Home Economics. I can picture Old Gregg fraternizing in Atlantis, or rising to the surface in homage to the “Aqua Boogie” single cover—on the back of an aquamarine dolphin well-endowed with teats. Other albums released this day: The Dead World by Deadsoul Tribe (2005), Day by Night by Doris Day (1957), Elocation by Default (2003). You want to take part in a Psychoalphadiscobetabioaquadoloop?

Less Than Jake are like the more serious Reel Big Fish. Well, they are on their new album See the Light, at least. It’s hard to imagine that the same band that was featured on the “Good Burger” soundtrack for a song entitled “We’re All Dudes” is the band that created See the Light. Less Than Jake’s music is generally known for its fast tempo and genre fusion. Like
Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake mixes electric guitar with wind instruments such as the trumpet, trombone and saxophone. While Less Than Jake digs a little deeper on this album than any of their nine full-length studio albums, the band demonstrates absolutely no versatility on See the Light. In the words of the late great Lana Del Rey, “I grew up on hiphop,” and therefore never really found my footing in the world of punk music. I do have a soft spot, however, for unconventional techniques like Less Than Jake’s prominent use of the trumpet in each song. “Jump,” the third song on See the Light, successfully threads punk sounds with jazzy instrumentals to tell a liberating, coming-of-age tale. On the other
hand, the most successful song on the album, “American Idle,” relies more heavily on elongated pauses and powerful percussion. I attribute this song’s success to Less Than Jake’s break away from their typical song structures. I commend the band’s longtime efforts to effectively interweave dissimilar instruments but it was hard to tell when one song ended and another began. The experience of listening to See the Light was similar to the experience of floating in a wave pool at a water park; the band repeatedly pushes you through the album using the same moderately successful mechanisms they’ve always used, yet never pulls you in.
opinion Cartels are winning the war on drugs Ryan bullen opinion columnist
onsters and angels, good and bad—these are the separations that make our society feel comfortable. Seeing acts of crime and horrific violence perpetrated by certain groups of people, it becomes easy to create a mentality of disconnect between “us,” the morally superior community, and “them,” the violent monsters that appear only in our worst nightmares. However, it is not so easy to accept the realization that the line between angel and monster relies entirely upon one’s own perspective. Even harder still is the acceptance that the actions of angels fuel the reactions of devils. This metaphor of good coinciding with evil is perfect for the current drug war raging in Mexico. The sheer scale of death from drug related violence in Mexico is almost unfathomable. Since 2006, there have been over 80,000 drug-violence related deaths in Mexico alone. To put that in an American perspective, there have been 7,528 deaths among coalition forces in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. In fact, Mexico’s death toll is on par with the amount of casualties in the current Syrian civil war. With numbers this devastating one would think that the

American media would be making a bigger deal about covering the carnage and demonizing the various cartels. However, the policy of turning a blind eye to Mexico is in fact beneficial to our representation because a deeper inquiry reveals rather embarrassing information for the United States.
To continue to support legal policies that not only encourage cartel expansion throughout Central and South America but also promote horrific acts of violence simply cannot be accepted any longer. Here in America we love our illegal drugs. In fact, the United States alone accounts for over half of the world’s drug consumption. Because of this, Mexican drug cartels have been able to make a fortune off of their American customers. So much of a fortune, in fact, that as of September 2013, cartels were estimated to make anywhere from $15 to $60 billion in revenue annually. This number becomes even more astonishing when you look at the annual earnings of tech giant Microsoft at $60 billion. In fact, Joaquín Guzmán Loera, the leader of the Sinaloa Federation, which is a large cartel in Mexico, actually made it onto the Forbes list of billionaires. The stereotype

November lease-signing craze does not benefit students Spencer Lindsay opinion columnist
ovember is upon us. Any veteran of UW-Madison knows what that means—property companies are already beginning to pressure us into choosing a place to live next year. While some feel the need to scramble into a living a situation, I encourage you to wait and see how this year shakes out before deciding what to do for next year. “November rush” has the potential to have many bad consequences for tenants, and solely serves the business interest of property companies. The November rush is absolutely ridiculous and there should be a municipal law preventing property companies from advertising leases for next
August this early in the academic year. Nine months is a long time and a lot of things have the potential to change over that period. Imagine having a falling out with some of your roommates over the course of second semester, but you had already signed a lease with them. You may be forced into living with these people regardless of your situation. I have a friend who is signing a lease with her boyfriend in the near future. What happens if, for argument’s sake, something happens and the two of them break up over the next nine months? That living situation, which may sound like a dream now, may turn into a manifestation of hell over this irrationally long interim period. Any attempt to force college students to make long-term decisions about a life that is constantly in flux does not serve them, but rather manipu-
EAT A BURRITO, SUPPORT
Wait and see how things shake out before rushing into a lease.
The November rush is particularly bad for freshmen, who often don’t know the city yet or don’t know who their friends are. Some freshmen may discover really cool parts of Madison in the coming months, but if they sign a lease now they will be unable to live there. Two months is such a short amount of time to get to know other people: One cannot conceivably make decisions about their living situation with a com-
plete knowledge of what they’re signing themselves up for. How can a property company pressure people who have only been living here for two months to make decisions nine months in the future? Freshmen are not the only ones this hurts. Some graduating seniors, including myself, are placed in an awkward position. I am not sure whether I am graduating over the summer or next fall and will likely decide largely on personal preference and other factors. After that, I would like to stay in Madison if I could find a good job here, but at this point I really just don’t know. It would be absolutely irrational for me to sign a lease now, when I am so uncertain of what the future holds. I’m already dealing with enough pressure regarding graduation and finding a job thereafter. I don’t need some property company trying to pressure me
into solidifying my plans. In reality this is merely an issue of perception. Property companies have a vested interest in presenting the perception that there is a rush to find housing early. In reality this is not the case. This past year I did not sign my lease until May. I could not be happier with my living situation, and I suspect my rent is lower than it would have been had I bought into the false perception that November rush presents. I encourage my readers to do the same—wait and see how things shake out before rushing into a lease. The false perception presented by property management companies is bad for tenants and is misleading. The city or the county should take action to prevent these companies from presenting this predatory perception. Please send all feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Guards propel win in season opener By Jack Baer the daily cardinal
With a much faster-paced offense on display, the Wisconsin men’s basketball team (1-0 overall) opened its season last Friday with an impressive 86-75 win over the St. John’s Red Storm at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, S.D. The Badgers came out and dominated early, building up a 14 point lead in the game’s first 10 minutes and leading by as much as 18 points. St. John’s went on to nibble away at the lead for most of the rest of the game, eventually cutting the lead to four points with eight minutes left. Timely 3-pointers from sophomore forward Sam Dekker and senior guard Ben Brust promptly drove the lead back to double digits and St. John’s did not significantly threaten for the rest of the night. Much of the scoring for the Badgers came from the 3-point and free-throw lines, as the team finished 11-of-23 (48 percent) from deep and 17-of-22 (77 percent) from the charity stripe. That free-throw shooting should be an encouraging sign, as the Badgers hope to improve on their dreadful 64 percent
from last season. St. John’s got most of its work done from inside the perimeter, taking advantage of weak rim protection from the backcourtheavy Badgers and throwing down several dunks. Junior center Frank Kaminsky explained how the team plans to improve its strategy in the paint. ”We got to start from the post,” Kaminsky said. “If you start from the post, there will be kick-out options and things like that. We have to establish more of a post presence going forward.” This problem could be expected in the future, as the Badgers are playing with a smaller lineup this year. Three starters in Friday’s game (redshirt junior guard Josh Gasser, sophomore guard Traevon Jackson and Brust) are all listed shorter than 6 feet 4 inches. Gasser led the Badgers in scoring in his return from last season’s ACL tear. Gasser looked like he has fully recovered from the injury, shooting 3-of-5 from 3-point range and a perfect 8-of8 for free throws, while playing solid perimeter defense. Gasser also lead the team in minutes played with 35, indicating the coaching staff fully believes he is
ready to play full time. Brust didn’t treat the return as much of a surprise. “It’s just the Josh that I know and we know,” Brust said. “He’s someone who’s got experience and going to make big shots and make good plays for us.” In addition to Gasser, Dekker, junior forward Duje Dukan, Brust, and Jackson all reached double digits in scoring. Dukan’s 15 points were not only a career high, but more than he had scored in his career at Wisconsin before that game. “He’s a good shooter,” Kaminsky said of Dukan. “There are going to be opportunities for him to get out there and play as well as he did.” Dukan was the only forward from the bench to register more than 10 minutes and figures to play a key role in the rotation going forward. A quick whistle from the referees was noticeable, with both teams combining for 43 personal-fouls. This aggressive game called by the officials created early foul trouble for St. John’s, eventually causing its leading scorer, junior guard D’Angelo Harrison to foul out. Many of the fouls came from
UW win keeps Drake at the bottom

Senior guard Taylor Wurtz reached 1,000 career points Sunday. By Jarek Petras the daily cardinal
Wisconsin women’s basketball (1-0 overall) opened its regular season Sunday afternoon at home against the Drake Bulldogs. The Badgers were 2-0 in exhibition matches, scoring 80 points in both contests and winning by an average margin of 30 points. Another solid defensive performance propelled the Badgers past Drake, 66-41. Drake (1-1) was only able to score 14 first-half points, making it hard to compete against the high-scoring Wisconsin offense. Sophomore guard Dakota Whyte was the leading scorer in the contest, finishing with 18 points. By driving the ball, Whyte was able to provide an offensive spark for the Badgers when they needed it the most. “I don’t feel any pressure out there, [head coach Bobbie Kelsey]
knows how well I can play. I feel like I worked hard this offseason and I’ve been waiting to fill the point guard role for a year now,” Whyte said. Another strong performance by junior forward Michala Johnson continues to solidify her presence in the post. She finished the game with 16 points and 16 rebounds, leading to her first double-double as a Badger. Kelsey explained how Johnson was able to score the Badgers first eight points of the game. “When Michala is in the paint one on one, no one can stop her. Once Drake figured that out, the double team seemed to work,” Kelsey said. Johnson was a strong contributor to the Badgers’ impressive 34 points in the paint. It was an historic day for senior guard Taylor Wurtz, as she became the 20th woman in Badger history
to score 1,000 career points. Wurtz needed just five points entering today’s game to reach the 1,000-point mark. She finished the game with 13 points on 4-of-11 shooting from the field. Taylor sat out all of last season with a lower back injury, but that is not slowing her down this season. If Wurtz isn’t scoring and assisting like she usually does, she still proves herself as a leader and a captain day in and day out. Wurtz explained the milestone and her mentality going into today’s game. “It is already one of the most memorable games in my career. I wasn’t thinking about the milestone before the game because getting a win is more important. However when I scored my fifth point of the game, I knew I had done something special,” Wurtz said. Drake’s head coach Jennie Baranczyk was disappointed in her team’s lack of ability to shoot Sunday. Coming off a big win against Creighton, Baranczyk explained that her team had good looks but the shots weren’t falling. She also explained how tough Johnson’s height was to defend. “If you look at the rebound totals, you can see that we were outmatched inside the paint. Michala’s height was detrimental for our rebounding because we don’t have any players even close to as tall as her. She’s already a proven scorer and rebounder,” Baranczyk said. The Badgers take on Milwaukee this Thursday in the first away game of the season. This will be the first regular season game for the Panthers, who are 1-0 in exhibition play.

Junior guard Josh Gasser led the team in scoring against St. John’s. new rules imposed by the NCAA, forbidding hand checks and arm bars by defensive players. The rules have created problems across the NCAA, as teams try to adjust their play styles to fit the new restrictions. “There’s a learning curve,” Brust said. “[Head coach Bo
Ryan] teaches us to not play with our hands. In practice, our coaches stay on us to play sound fundamental defense, so when the games come, it’s not a big transition.” The Badgers will move on and face No. 10 Florida at the Kohl Center Tuesday.
Badgers rely on role players Brett Bachman ready, brett, go
he Badgers, not surprisingly, looked good Saturday. The defense found a way to shut BYU quarterback Taysom Hill down early, and senior running back James White gave Wisconsin a chance to fight through the fourth quarter and come out with a win. With a grind of an 11-play, 76-yard opening drive, UW set the tone early. Once again not surprisingly, all the big names come up in the box score— Chris Borland, Joel Stave, Jared Abbrederis and Melvin Gordon, among others. The surprising part, however, were the players not on that list who had solid games. Head coach Gary Andersen said it was the team’s best team effort of the season, an assertion that has a fair amount of evidence on its side. It wasn’t just the big names that were making plays. Redshirt senior tight end Jacob Pedersen had six catches for 49 yards, and held multiple blocks downfield that allowed White to get an extra few yards on each run. While his receiving numbers may not seem spectacular on first glance, all of his receptions came at key junctures in the game. Three of his catches were recorded in the same drive, getting the Badgers to the five-yardline. White was able to punch it in after an athletic 24-yard reception from Pedersen, making it 17-3, a two-score game. All game Pedersen was used
as the Badgers’ second receiver, instead of his normal role as last resort. When Stave gets too zoned in looking at Abbrederis, bad things happen. In big games you can see Stave widen his range of possible receivers, which makes for a much better offense, as seen Saturday. This bodes well for the Badgers down the stretch. Redshirt sophomore safety Michael Caputo found his way into the spotlight, recording 12 tackles while playing a big role in stopping Hill. All year Caputo has been a sleeper in the secondary, and it’s good to see a game plan built at least partly around his ability to fly to the ballcarrier. Andersen is learning to utilize all of his weapons, and that’s a dangerous skill for a coach to have. Sophomore kicker Jack Russell made both his field goals, one from 38 yards and the other from 26, in a game where wind was a huge factor. The Badgers’ kicking woes this season are legendary and it’s far too soon to say that things are fixed, but the kicking game is definitely on the rise. Redshirt sophomore safety Tanner McEvoy, who transferred to UW as a quarterback over the summer, is settling into his new role as a safety quite nicely. He had an interception and five tackles in the game, shutting down Hill and the dynamic set of BYU receivers. Hill only tossed for 207 yards, much less than his 360 yard average per game. All in all, the Badgers play better as a team than as a set of disjointed superstars. Do you think the Badgers will win out and get a BCS bowl berth? Send your thoughts to email@example.com.

UW shuts down BYU in Borland’s return

As the old adage goes, when you cut off the head of a snake, its body will stop moving. The Badgers’ defense effectively shut down Brigham Young’s dynamic dual-threat quarterback and offensive workhorse Taysom Hill en route to a 27-17 victory, limiting the sophomore to just
19-for-41 passing with 207 yards through the air. The Badgers similarly stifled any threat Hill posed on the ground, allowing him to gain just 66 yards with his feet. “I thought that was maybe overall our best team victory of the season,” head coach Gary Andersen said. “[BYU] is a tough team. They’ll be tough every week. They’ll be tough every year.”
Sweet home Wisconsin Badgers cap off perfect 9-0-0 home record on Senior Night against Buckeyes By Jonah Beleckis the daily cardinal
The nation’s longest home unbeaten streak going back to last season was extended Friday night when the No. 16 Wisconsin men’s soccer team (4-2-0 Big Ten, 13-3-2 overall) ended its regular season by beating Ohio State (1-3-2, 5-7-5) 2-0 at the McClimon Soccer Complex. Reaching 13 wins is the most for UW since its national championship season in 1995. On Senior Night for the Badgers, midfielder Tomislav Zadro and forward Nick Janus scored UW’s goals and ended their careers in Madison on a high note. A cross from sophomore midfielder Drew Conner was met by Zadro as he headed the ball past the Buckeye goalkeeper, ending OSU’s stout 448-minute streak of not allowing a goal. Janus, Wisconsin’s leading goalscorer, found the back of the net for the ninth time this sea-
son in the second half, sealing the game in the 71st minute and cementing the season’s perfect 9-0-0 home record. Senior goalkeeper Max Jentsch earned yet another shutout between the posts. All three of his shutouts this season came against Big Ten opponents. All four captains for the Badgers will not return to the team next season. Defenders Paul Yonga and Blake Succa along with forward Chris Prince and Zadro played their last game at McClimon. With the win, Wisconsin earned the No. 2 seed in the Big Ten tournament. On Wednesday, Nov. 13 the Badgers will play the No. 7 seed Northwestern Wildcats. Wisconsin won their only matchup this year in Evanston 1-0. The Big Ten regular season champions, Penn State earned the No. 1 seed and a firstround bye. If the Badgers beat the Wildcats they will play the winner of Michigan State and Ohio State. Both the Spartans and the Buckeyes fell victim to Wisconsin’s home perfection. Whether or not the Badgers continue their home form in Columbus, Ohio, will be revealed Wednesday. UWBadgers.com contributed to this report.
The Cougars’ contingency plan, sophomore running back Jamaal Williams, fared slightly better with 77 yards, but it wasn’t enough to lift BYU over Wisconsin in the two teams’ second-ever meeting at Camp Randall Saturday. It was business as usual for the Badgers’ running back duo of senior James White and redshirt sophomore Melvin Gordon, who continue to be the engine powering the Wisconsin offense. White recorded three touchdowns to up his season total to 12, taking over the team lead from Gordon, who has 11. “[White] is playing very well at a high level,” Andersen said. “You thought, OK, it’s third-andtwo. Looks like he got the first down. Next time you look up, he’s in the end zone doing that little dance they do. I love that dance.” Opening the game with a fiveminute, 11-play, 76-yard touchdown drive, Wisconsin established its pound-and-ground rhythm right away. White recorded 59 of the teams’ 76 yards on the opening drive. “If we get a three-and-out, it kind of feels like we wasted an opportunity when we know we can take advantage of what they give us,” sophomore wide receiver Jordan Fredrick said. “And just being able to drive down on the first drive was pretty comforting knowing that we can do that all day.” Wisconsin also owned the time of possession ratio to weather an early fumble and an interception
to open up the second quarter, while the defense was able to stall BYU at the Wisconsin 31-yardline to force a field goal in the Cougars’ first trip past midfield. “The pace was a nonfactor, and that was huge for us,” Andersen said. “There wasn’t confusion. There weren’t guys running around and looking to see what was going to happen and where we were going.” Redshirt senior wide receivers Jacob Pedersen and Jared Abbrederis carried the offensive load in the second quarter, each catching three passes to fuel a 65-yard scoring drive capped off by a five-yard touchdown reception for White, his second of the day. The second half opened with a three-and-out for BYU, capped by a sack from redshirt senior linebacker Chris Borland in his first game back after sustaining a hamstring injury two weeks ago against Illinois. Borland recorded two sacks and 13 tackles in the game. “The thing I like about this defense is I can’t say this defense is waiting for Chris Borland to make plays, which is good to see,” Andersen said. “He’ll get his 13 tackles today or whatever it was. He’s made some great plays and will continue to do that.” Junior wide receiver Kenzel Doe then had a 26-yard punt return to bring the Badgers to Brigham Young’s 23-yard-line, setting up an eventual field goal from sophomore kicker Jack Russell, his second of the day. On the next drive Hill finally
laced up a long ball to BYU senior wide receiver Cody Hoffman, who went up over redshirt senior safety Dezmen Southward in the end zone to make the play. “Hoffman is so physical,” Andersen said. “You’ve got to have some length to be able to stay with them. Those contested balls they get up there and they caught a great contested ball on the fade in the second half.” Wisconsin would counter in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter with another touchdown from White, this one from 14 yards out. With three minutes left in the game Hoffman made another athletic touchdown grab to bring the score to 27-17, but the game clock ticked away on any chance of a Cougar comeback. “We had bad games against Arizona State and Ohio State, and they are kind of similar offenses,” redshirt sophomore safety Tanner McEvoy said. “But they did have that tempo that was a lot faster than most teams that we’ve played. We just have to adjust to that and play our roles.” While the Badgers have a long way to go to reach the top 14 and become BCS bowl eligible, Andersen says neither he nor his players are worried about the polls or their eventual bowl placement. “They’ve got enough to worry about if they worry about themselves socially, academically, and then athletically,” Andersen said. “Those kids have plenty to worry about. They don’t need to worry about some poll.”
