Senior Defensive End Byron Hout (94) shines this year despite undesirable notoriety stemming from a 2009 game against the Oregon Ducks.
This is Hout we do
Senior Byron Hout is a big key to Bronco defense Justin Dalme Journalist
The Broncos’ defense has gotten a lot of attention this season, and a big part of this attention is from middle linebacker, Byron Hout. Hout, who is coming off a broken foot that ended his season last year, recorded four tackles to begin the 2011 campaign, including an assisted tackle for a loss. So far, Hout is benefitting from playing behind a stellar defensive line. “It’s great because they make my job pretty easy,” Hout said. “They take on a lot of blocks for me, so it leaves me freed up. They sacrifice themselves for us (linebackers) to make plays.” Hout, who used to play defensive end, made the switch back to linebacker last year. “It’s way different having your hand down than standing up,” Hout said. “With your hand down, you are reacting to only one thing really. When you are standing up, you are reading the whole defense and reacting to a lot
of different things at once. I would say that it is a little bit harder to play linebacker than (defensive end).” Hout was recruited out of Lake City High School in Coeur d’Alene. Hout has been playing football since second grade. Going into his junior year of high school, he realized he might be able to play college ball. Coming out of high school, Hout was named the 2007 Idaho Gatorade Player of the Year. He was also named the 2006 5A Idaho Player of the Year by the Idaho Statesman and was offered scholarships to the University of Idaho and Boise State University. “If you graduate from Coeur d’Alene, or anywhere up there, you go to U of I,” Hout said. “It’s something that you do and you party.” Luckily for blue-and-orange fans, Hout chose to stray from the beaten path. In his last year as a Bronco, there is no other place Hout would rather be than on the blue. “It’s a great feeling,” Hout said. “It’s crazy, outside looking back at the stadium.
There are only a couple of us, a handful of guys who look at that and say ‘that is where we play football.’ It’s a weird feeling and I wish a lot more people could feel that feeling.” Perhaps Hout’s most infamous moment was “The Punch Heard ‘Round the World” when LeGarrette Blount decked him after the 2009 season opener against the University of Oregon. “It sucks,” Hout said. “It’s probably what I’ll be remembered as. Hopefully I can do some good things here that will overshadow that.” Hout can try to overshadow that moment by having a spectacular senior year, but for now, he said he looks forward to playing the University of Tulsa at home. “Those flights to the east coast and back, they’re not fun getting back at six in the morning. It will be nice sleeping in your own bed the night before the game. It’s awesome that we do that,” Hout said. He will make his first appearance on the blue this season at Saturday’s game.
Senior Defensive End From: Caldwell, Idaho
Shea McClellin Year 2011:
Solo Tackles 6
Tackles For Loss 2.5
cClellin has been a key asset to the Broncos’ defensive front in past seasons and continues this trend so far in 2011. McClellin uses speed and agility to wreak havoc in opposing offense’s backfields. With the all-around talent surrounding him on the defensive line, it’s nearly impossible to double team any of the Broncos’ front four, giving Shea some great odds of adding to his sack total.
Sophomore Running Back From: Arlington, Texas
Ja’Terian Douglas Year 2011:
Rushing Yards 236
Yards Per Carry 9.1
Rushing TDs 2
ouglas is the “big play” half of Tulsa’s tandem backfield. Last week against Oklahoma State he ran for 173 on only 12 carries, breaking long touchdown runs of 80 and 42 yards. With a freshman quarterback, on the road, expect the Golden Hurricanes to rely heavily on their running game.

While opponents have shredded Tulsa’s defense at times this year, giving up over 36 points per game, expect this beast at middle linebacker to make plays one way or another.

Drowning in disasters
A typhoon swept Tokyo and damaged a nuclear plant.
Professor receives grant to develop advanced microscope.
Stephanie Casanova Journalist
Let’s face it; drunken college students on game day aren’t the wildest things in this town. Cougars and black bears have been known to roam around Boise and have been sighted and reported within city limits. Scary, right? Don’t worry, it’s really not as dangerous as it sounds. Most big game that does come into the city roams around the foothills and near the greenbelt during dusk and dawn. According to Steve Nadeau, the Idaho Department of Fish & Game’s Regional Wildlife Manager for the Southwest Region, about half a dozen cougar sightings are reported every year. “This year I think we’ve received and recorded 15 or so cougar sightings in the city and there were probably a lot more observations that were not reported,” Nadeau said. “It’s not uncommon to have reports of cougars particularly in the outskirts of the city.” Two of these 15 reports came in this month. A cougar was reported on Monday, Sept. 5 at Ninth and Myrtle. Three days later an Ada County Sheriff’s Deputy had to put down a cougar spotted at St. Alphonsus by the I-184 connector. Female cougars take care of their cubs for about two years. At 22 to 24 months old, the young cougar is kicked out by the mother and sent off to live in solitude. Most of the cougars we see in town are young ones trying to avoid other, more dominant male cougars.
“The lush green Boise river and the city may appear attractive,” Nadeau said. “There’s all kinds of deer along the greenbelt and within the city limits and there are domestic house cats … there are raccoons scattered throughout the city, any number of things that cougars could find appealing.” Similar to cougars, black bears have been seen around the city and reported to wildlife experts. “Bears are more cyclic than cougars are,” Nadeau said. “We won’t have any bear problems for years then all of a sudden one year they’ll be a bunch of trouble.” Black bears eat a mixture of fruits, roots, berries and other vegetation. They will also go out of their way for honey. “If the berries that they found the year before are not there due to droughts or whatever, then they go in search in areas and that’s when we often find them in town attracted by dog food, garbage, the smells, the green lush vegetation and so forth,” Nadeau said. “Hillsides get dry, food stress period for some reason and the bears are looking for alternative food sources to what they would find up on the hill.” Along with the cougar sightings, a bobcat was also reported along the greenbelt on Sept.5. A student called campus security, but the bobcat was never found. “You don’t see very many (bobcats) around Boise.” Nadeau said. “I have seen bobcat tracks on the greenbelt in the winter so they do occasionally come down … but we don’t see a lot of bobcats in the city … they’re very common in the des-

This year actually we have gotten several reports of bobcats in the foothills, more so than I would consider usual or common.” This wildlife is around all year long and is especially common in August. “We tend to have a flurry seemingly in August which tends to be their peak in production for cougars,” Nadeau said.
Did you run immediately? YES
Though wildlife visiting the city is common, attacks are extremely rare. Most animals, even carnivores, aren’t after humans. If you ever see big game in the city, report it to authorities or to the Idaho Department of Fish & Game. Nadeau also advises the greenbelt doesn’t only attract people — use common sense, travel in pairs (or groups) at night and carry a light.

New semester, new eateries Cheyenne Penny Journalist
If you’re wondering where to grab lunch with friends or get vital morning coffee, Boise State facilitates students’ dining wants and needs by adding to the campus’ repertoire of restaurants. The new dining addition this year is Einstein’s Bros. Bagels. Previously the site of Java City and Sandwich Zone, Einstein’s Bros. Bagels resides in the Interactive Learning Center (ILC). Einstein’s Bros. Bagels had its soft opening Aug. 22 and its grand opening Aug. 25. The first 50 students in line for the grand opening won free breakfast for a year. Conveniently placed, students can hardly miss the lit exhibition of bagels and other baked goods at Einstein Bros. Bagels as they walk through the ILC. With a menu consisting of a collection of specialty bagels, coffee and meals for lunch, Einstein’s Bros. Bagels gives students options throughout the day. The restaurant also includes what they call the “lighter side” menu which features healthier choices. Whether on-the-go or with time to spare, eating light or splurging, Einstein’s Bros. Bagels tries to accommodate. Einstein’s Bros. Bagels is open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Six Soldiers gears up for new fall catalog Trevor Villagrana Journalist
ROBBY MILO/THE ARBITER
Students give their order at Einstein Bros. Bagels shop. Monday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday. Though not new to campus, Grille Works underwent renovations for this fall semester. The restaurant had a “face-lift,” said Boise State University Dining Marketing Director Renae Walter. Alterations included “new trade dress” and “digital
signage.” Other eateries familiar on the Boise State campus are Zocá, Béne Pizza and Pasta, Mai Thai, Chick-fil-A, University Bread Co., Moxie Java, La Tapatía, Subway, Starbucks, Dawsons 4.0, Boise River Café, and the convenient store Convenience to the Third Power (C3).
After two years spent plugging away in the street-wear game, Six Soldiers, Boise’s fledgling, culture-based clothing company is finally starting to break out and break into a growing population of fashionable youngsters. Six Soldiers, the brainchild of advertising savant Sever Mohlman, creative director Alex Salviejo and executive designer Cameron Lorensen, started as merely an idea in 2009. It began to grow as Salviejo made his way from his former residence in Seattle to Boise with a grip of T-shirt-based designs at his fingertips. During his stay in Seattle, Salviejo attempted to build a foundation for a company of his own, but ultimately fell short due to pressures of individual owning and operating. With training in graphic design and fashion management, the pairing between he and Mohlman morphed into a business-based brotherhood. Upon adding Lorensen, Six Soldiers took one giant leap for young, hip entrepreneurs. Mohlman, with experience in public relations and advertising, caught wind of the message Salviejo was trying to communicate and immediately coined the
name Six Soldiers based on a former grouping between him and a few high school friends. “We all came from pretty diverse and crazy backgrounds but we all came together and believed in one thing and that was hanging out, having fun and doing what we liked to do,” Mohlman said about the unbreakable bonds that greatly reflect the attitude and passion of the company. “Whenever we got in trouble it was like the six soldiers were at it again,” Mohlman said. “Wherever we go, we roll six soldiers deep.” Salviejo cited Los Angeles and other west coast hubs as the main inspiration for the designs and demeanor indicative of the Soldiers. Although coming from a metropolitan area and mentality, these three pioneers want to maintain the small town vibe Boise has always had to offer, but in a way that leaves room for expansion. “This whole southern Idaho thing is just a huge water balloon that’s full of energy and it’s just going to blow up everywhere,” Salviejo said. “Boise is the next Los Angeles.” “A lot of different aspects of this town are ready to just pop with culture and we want to

Typhoon sweeps across Japan TOKYO, JAPAN — More than one million people have been urged to evacuate central Japan as Typhoon Roke approached. The death toll is currently at five with four missing, according to recent reports by Japan’s national broadcaster, N.H.K. When Roke hit Tokyo, the city briefly shut down, commuter trains and subways temporarily halted while bullet trains and airline service was canceled completely. Only 20,000 homes lost power in
Tokyo, a city with nearly 13 million residents, according to Tokyo Electric Power. The typhoon is threatening to pour rain on the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, already damaged by last spring’s tsunami, raising concerns that the flooding will sweep newly contaminated water into the Pacific. Spokesman for Tokyo Electric, Takeo Iwamoto made a statement saying the plant could make it through the storm without further damage or risk of a leak.
American hikers released TEHRAN, IRAN — Family members of hikers Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal greeted the two hikers in Oman yesterday afternoon. The third judge finally returned from vacation and signed the document granting bail to the two hikers imprisoned in Iran for a little more than two years Wednesday morning. The hikers’ combined bail of $1 million was paid early Wednesday morning and a motorcade took them from Evin
prison soon afterward. Their release comes a day before Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is expected to speak to the United Nations General Assembly in New York City. The family has not yet announced how long they plan to stay in Oman before returning to the United States. It is expected that the pair of hikers will at least spend a few days in Muscat, the capital of Oman.

BOISE — The infamous hole on the corner of 8th and Main, empty since the Eastman building burned in 1987, is planned to be the new home of a $60 million office and retail building that will serve as the Idaho headquarters for Zions Bank. Boise Mayor Dave Bieter announced the construction plans on Monday morning at a press conference next to The Hole. Zions Bank and Gardner Co. have partnered up to plan and build this retail building. Construction may begin as early as next spring, if approvals and permits go smoothly and is planned to take 18 months. It is unclear how many jobs this will create or who is going to fill the empty offices and retail space in the building besides Zions Bank.

Nine Amish men arrested over buggy protest KENTUCKY — Nine Amish men were arrested for refusing to put an orange reflective triangle on their horse drawn buggies, according to the Courier-Journal. They also refused to pay the fines, amounting to $158. They claimed that paying the fine would support Kentucky’s law which they said violates their religious strictures against wearing bright colors and trusting in man-made symbols for safety. District Judge Deborah Hawkins Crooks ordered them to serve three to 10 days in jail. The Mayfield jail special ordered dark-colored jumpsuits in order to avoid causing conflict with their strictures against wearing bright colors. One of the defendants was released after a friend paid the fine so the man could care for his son, who is reported to have cerebral palsy.

Polar Bear Club celebrates its new full length album release with a massive tour, stopping in Boise Sept. 28.
Polar Bear Club ‘Clash Battle Guilt Pride’ Trevor Villagrana Journalist
Polar Bear Club’s three-month long headlining tour will make a stop in Boise Sept. 28 with supporting acts Fireworks, Balance & Composure and Such Gold. The boys hit the road late in the summer in support of their third full length album, “Clash Battle Guilt Pride,” which has been building intense hype since its release on Sept. 13. The band has made incredible strides since forming in 2005 in upstate New York and although undergoing several lineup changes over the years, has managed to stay
true to their blend of indie, punk and post-hardcore. With several widely renowned releases already under their belts, including the nostalgia inducing “The Redder, the Better” and their debut, powerhouse full length “Sometimes Things Just Disappear,” it appears that the Club is going to keep reinventing themselves as some of the genre’s most ambitious songwriters to date. “Clash” picks up right where their previous release, “Chasing Hamburg,” left off but makes a distinct departure in regard to vibe, flow and atmosphere. The clarity of Jimmy Stadt’s gruff

fine dining. By bridging the gap between hard line demographics and a desire to live life to the utmost fullest, the Soldiers main objective is to support, sustain and include all those that take the time to try on one of their shirts.
vocal styling is unsurpassed and arguably the focus of the record. The first track, “Pawner,” is easily one of the most intriguing and really sets the mood for the rest of the album. Upon striking the first note, the song builds from a tender conversation between Stadt and the quirky, guitar rhythm into a full blown punk rock onslaught. Unlike Hamburg and their other full length, the 12 songs on “Clash” are much more straightforward, but in no way does it hinder their personality and depth. By taking a simpler approach and not busying the songs with unnecessary tempo changes and guitar solos, the album
as a whole has an interesting feel to it. Stadt, as usual, rasps and screams line after line of abstract imagery and speaks volumes about relationships, alcohol abuse and Catholic guilt. The album is lyrically defining and unbelievably genuine, something that Hamburg lacked, but remains solidified in obscurity. What sets “Clash” apart from the group’s other full lengths is also its believability and honesty. Every part of every song seems intentional and justified and the production value is nothing short of amazing. Some serious care went into the recording of this album and each track reflects that.
“This is what we do. This is how we live our brand,” Salviejo said. “We do it for fun, we do it for the love and we don’t do it for the exposure.” These boys may be grass roots, but with fall and winter approaching they are stocking up on designs and fresh ideas that will hopefully one day include
watches, shoes, socks, footy pajamas and other sought after accessories. After a couple successful seasonal releases, the Soldiers are pushing for a lot of men’s gear this winter, including sweatshirts and some super-topsecret outerwear for all those snow bunnies, skiers and boarders out there.
The National Science Foundation awarded Byung Kim, PhD. and associate professor of physics, $342,000 to work on a revolutionary kind of microscope. The goal of his research is to “develop a unique microscope that will lead us to a fundamental understanding of interfacial water in confined spaces, including biological cells,” Kim said. Kim is working with four undergraduates and five high school students on this three-year research project. The students will have hands-on research in a project that could appear in several scientific journals. Kim said he finds the interns give a fresh approach to his research and he enjoys working with them. “Sometimes they make insightful suggestions that I have never thought about,” Kim said. He hopes their internships will help shape the decisions they make about their college and career goals. “Based on their contributions to the works, I could include them as coauthors in research papers,” Kim said. Jonathan Walsh, a junior biology major, is excited to use a novel approach to measuring the “the amount of force involved in the interactions between molecules.” Walsh added, “an understanding of physics, chemistry and biology is necessary to completely understand all the subtle intricacies of life.” Ryan Boehm, a pre-med student who recently received his undergraduate degree in biology and chemistry is “thrilled to be engaged in such novel and adverse work.” “The information we obtain through this project could be used to establish a quantitative theory about the interaction between water and hydrophilic surfaces, such as silicon oxide,” Boehm said. Science recently recognized the structural differences between bulk water, (such as a glass of water which contains nearly infinite molecules) and interfacial water in cells (which may contain only a thousand molecules) with the help of experimental tools like Kim’s microscope. Kim’s microscope is a Cantilever-based Optical Interfacial Force Microscope (COIFM) with lateral modulation. The lateral modulation allows the researcher to measure the normal and the friction forces simultaneously. The water molecules can then be studied individually. In other words, two water molecules coming together from different surfaces produce a “snap” as the molecules seem to grab each other. Through his research Kim will develop a device that would hold the molecules in place so researchers can study the force that causes the molecules to “snap.” Kim’s project will have far-reaching effects in intermolecular friction — an important key to the medical treatment of human and animal joints and bio-materials like artificial cartilage. “It will also contribute to the development of small micro-machine systems, as water surrounding the machines are known to play a key role in degrading their performances. The better understanding of the interfacial water will allow us to design and develop new lubricants for better rotations between components such as small gears. The developed machine can be used for micro-surgery such as removal of cancer cells in the future,” Kim said. Kim’s research will also affect the future of pharmaceuticals, giving developers an increased understanding of the water molecules role in biomolecular interactions such as drug receptor interactions.

Another slap in minorities’ faces Rebecca De León Editor-in-Chief
With the final mission of the space shuttle in July, it might be a long time before Americans go to space again.
NASA Day is a dream aborted in a press release promoting NASA Day. “We are looking ahead to great partnerships in many areas, including engineering, biology and the many uses of history. The National Research Council is reporting that America will need more astronauts, not fewer, in the future. We’ll also need more Boise State graduates to serve our country.” Too bad they might not have a lot to do. It’s been 39 years since humans last landed on the moon. There is only one space station currently in orbit (down from a high of three) and, according to NASA, by 2020 there will be none with the planned re-entry of the International Space Station (ISS). Not to mention in July, as rain clouds hovered ominously overhead, the 30-year-old space shuttle program came to an end with the 135th and final mission. “We’ve come full circle since 1961, back to when we had yet to show we could launch people into space,” Steven Dick, a retired NASA chief historian, said in an interview with the New York Times. “We will be hitching rides from the Russians to go to the space station that is mainly ours.” Thanks to an economic downturn and allocation of funds, that seems to be America’s only option for even leaving the stratosphere. The irony of having to send our astronauts up in Russian Soyuz capsules is as plain as Cold War
Opinion Editor There was a time when a countdown at Cape Canaveral, Fla. stopped the world in its tracks. On television or at the launching, every breath was held at liftoff and every eye followed the fiery plume of ascent, up and away. Godspeed, said someone who was everyone. That was a half century ago, when men first squeezed into their machines and, defying gravity, rode into a new dimension of human experience. Unbound to Earth, our species could imagine that an age of spacefaring was truly under way, the moon and Mars within reach, maybe even an asteroid where extraterrestrials awaited our visit. The promised new reality legitimized even the wildest fantasies. In short, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) was going to help us conquer what Captain Jean-Luc Picard would refer to as “the final frontier.” Back on Earth, Boise State’s NASA Day Sept. 20 allowed students and faculty to wonder alongside experts from the Johnson Space Center and Jet Propulsion Laboratory what is next for space travel. Unfortunately, not a whole lot. “Both NASA and Boise State are all about the future,” Barbara Morgan, Boise State’s educator in residence and NASA astronaut, said
history. The Soviet Union’s early dominance of space, manifested by the Sputnik surprise in 1957 and subsequent feats, prompted President Dwight D. Eisenhower to create NASA in 1958 and push the United States to match and surpass the Soviets in a program topped off by the Apollo 11 lunar landing in 1969. Human spaceflight might have come along anyway, but not with quite the urgency of the Soviet-American competition. Yet we seem lost — not in space like many would have thought would be happening by now — but in the terrestrial realities of governmental red tape. Last year, the Obama Administration proposed new plans, approved by Congress, to develop heavy-lift rockets for sending people deeper into space, to be ready perhaps after 2020. At the same time, ambitious plans by former President George W. Bush to have humans on Mars by 2020 were axed in favor of financing research for intermediate crew-only spacecraft to be produced and launched by commercial companies such as Virgin Galactic, probably no sooner than 2016. Such plans, of course, are at the mercy of the budget cutting and government downsizing spreading in Washington, D.C. Lori Garver, deputy administrator of NASA, insisted in July that the future was bright for human spaceflight. “We are tapping into how we
developed almost everything great in this country, through commercial enterprise and competition,” Garver said in an interview with the Associated Press. John Logsdon, a space policy expert and the author of “John F. Kennedy and the Race to the Moon,” also told the New York Times there had been gaps in human flight before, especially after the Apollo flights ended in 1975 and the first shuttles flew in 1981. “We can accept that as long as a replacement is in the pipeline,” Logsdon said. “But we are ending programs with no sure follow-ons.” Whatever happened to the space age as imagined back in the 1950s and early ’60s, when science fiction writers and rocket scientists spun tales of travel out in the solar system and beyond? Propellants, oxygen and other things never seemed limited, radiation was never a risk, Congressional budgets were never a curse. This alternate universe appealed to some in a society flush with confidence after winning World War II, but feeling a bit confined in the postwar gray flannel conformity. Americans seemed to have lost none of their can-do spirit. But in 2011, that attitude of “can do” seems to have been replaced by “can’t afford it.” No one disputes that the space age is here to stay. But as long as we remain stuck in the bickering over how to proceed, we must wonder if it is for humans.
It’s already happened at prestigious places such as Boston University and Texas State University. Scholarships for white men only. The Huffington Post reported that Texas State University student Colby Bohannon formed a group called Former Majority Association for Equality, which provided four $500 college scholarships to white men exclusively. The group’s mission statement states its goal is to, “provide monetary aid to those that have found the scholarship application process difficult because they do not fit into certain categories or any ethnic group.” Bohannon told news sources that he did not do it to cause a political stir. (Apparently, the political stir it did cause was completely unforeseeable). The Huffington Post stated in the article that whites are, “in fact in the minority in Texas, where nonHispanic whites compose less than half the populace.” Let me translate that for you: whites are the largest ethnic group there, unless you put ALL the other groups together. Here’s a news flash for Mr. Bohannon. That doesn’t make you a minority. Boise State’s admissions in fall 2010 showed that 80.19 percent of undergrad and graduate students were White. Next in line were Hispanics at a whopping 6.47 percent, then “Race and Ethnicity Unknown” at 6.34 percent. Hawaiian/ Pacific Islander and Bi-racial made up the bottom two at 0.53 and 0.37 percent, respectively. The U.S. Department of Education reportedthat in 2009, only 71.5 percent were White, 9.8 percent were Black, and 8.1 percent were Hispanic. Clearly, white people are unfairly discriminated against. Which leads us to a more specific debate within this debate: affirmative action. Why would the United States have such racist creeds as affirmative action? Why would the white male put himself even further down on the American hierarchy of class than the poor targeted fella already is? Historically, white people have lived more luxuriously than all other ethnic groups. The 2010 U.S. Cen-
sus showed that of all the families living below the poverty line, 14.9 percent were Hispanic, 8.3 percent were black and 5.4 percent were white. To sum up, out of the entire country, white people comprise 74.5 percent of the nation, only 5.4 percent of people living in poverty and 88 percent of college graduates. Clearly, they have it rough. Technorati Media looked a little further into the obstacles Hispanics still face today. “If current trends continue, for every 100 Hispanic children that begin elementary school this year, only 12 will graduate with a four year college degree. Yet for every 100 white children that begin elementary school this year, 36 will get a four year degree. That translates into one third as many Hispanics who enjoy higher incomes, safer jobs, and jobs with benefits. (According to a 2008 report by Sallie Mae) “Culturally, Hispanics are less likely to readily accept the various types of financial aid available to college students. Culturally, Hispanics are averse to taking on large debt, more so than other ethnic groups,” the article said. No one is saying white people are the reason why Hispanics and blacks are disproportionally represented in the nation’s universities, but they should certainly not take steps to create more obstacles for minorities, either. The fact that any white person entertains the idea of offering scholarships only to the majority is a huge slap in the face to every non-white race and to the progression of a moral ideology. Pioneers such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Cesar Chavez fought their entire lives to eradicate the country of discrimination only to have it turned around and used against the people they were trying to defend. I am not white nor am I male. I came to Boise State on a full ride scholarship because I graduated high school as valedictorian. But just because I got here on an academic scholarship doesn’t mean it’s just as easy for every other “Jenny from the block” to do, too. Let’s not go backwards, America. Minorities are minorities because they are underrepresented and oppressed. Let’s continue to take steps to honor MLK and Cesar Chavez’s dreams, not just their names.
Boise State’s Greeks not as gaudy as others Megan Mills Journalist
Drinking, bunk-beds, matching outfits; these come to mind when fraternities and sororities are brought up. What is Greek life’s sole purpose other than to keep a popularity contest that has been ongoing since junior high? Greek life is everywhere; it almost seems to be one of the goals for people graduating high school. As I walked the halls of Lewiston High School a few years ago, it was the same in every conversation: where someone was going to rush or what house they wanted to be in. It is hard to understand why someone wouldn’t want to break off without a giant group of people they feel they would need to form. “I know they’re known for partying and yes we do, but I absolutely think they benefit,” said Kendall Forge, a freshman at University of Idaho and part of the Alpha Phi sorority. “They get you involved; so far I don’t think I’ve ever volunteered so much in my life.” For some, being involved makes them feel as though they are a part of a larger lifestyle — something they wouldn’t experience if they weren’t
a member of a fraternity or sorority. But this ostracized feeling could be a small insecurity. Boise State and the University of Idaho, however, are different in many aspects, and it appears that fraternities and sororities are just another way in which they seem to be polar opposites. Going to college means leaving one’s comfort zone; being alone is hard at first, but once a young freshman is really on their own completely, it is easier for them to find their own identity. Branching out without anybody to lean on is a life-changing obstacle that everybody should be part of. At the University of Idaho, one is thrown into a giant pool of people with the same characteristics, whereas the Boise State fraternities and sororities seem more close-knit. The Greek life in Boise is a lot smaller and many people might not even realize that Boise State has a Greek life. First, they are not offered any housing on campus. Most Greek members live in separate places and meet up for meetings or get together for events. Troy Hatfield, Fraternal Educator for Alpha Kappa Lamda at Boise State was asked why there is no housing for Greek life at Boise State. “There are a lot of reasons, and
not all of them have to do with administration based hesitance,” he said. “The Greek system at BSU is still growing and as such it isn’t a sure thing that every group would be able to populate a big house. Every organization has members living together off campus, and these have become the sort of de facto housing. Another issue pertains to liability and image. We’ve been trying to avoid the stereotypical image, and a house is a part of that. At the same time, when letters are put up on a house and the house is recognized as Greek, then the liability falls on that organization.” For some this is a nice breath of fresh air when comparing the Greek system at the two largest universities in Idaho. Boise State’s idea to keep their image cleaner than its northern cousin is a sign that individuals understand that even though college students are going to act like college students by going out and having a good time, they can also be responsible and make a positive difference in the community. They realize they are representing an organization and the school, just as certain sports teams are told that when they “put on that jersey” they are representing something bigger than themselves.

Unlike some schools, there is no Greek housing on campus at Boise State. “BSU Greeks raise thousands of dollars every semester for both local and national philanthropies,” Hatfield said. “They also provide a support structure for their members, and are traditionally the most active alumni.” For Boise State to have a strong alumni base, that is very important. The school needs support, especial-
ly from organizations such as Greeks that are trying to better campus life and the community. Moving to the Treasure Valley, where the Greek life is much calmer yet still very active, is a relief. If the Greek system’s true goal was to become an out of control, wild organization like the University of Idaho’s fraternities and sororities have been

characterized, it just doesn’t seem like that’s in the future for Boise State’s fraternities and sororities. Keeping their houses smaller, yet still filled with people who care about the causes they support and really do want to benefit can make any Bronco proud to see such strong work-driven students who put their time to good use at Boise State.

Despite NCAA sanctions, women’s tennis remains positive John Engel Journalist
Every collegiate athlete dreams of the chance to shine in the post season, capturing a conference title and perhaps winning a national championship. Despite years of unprecedented dominance in women’s tennis, however, Boise State senior Sonia Klamczynska has lost that opportunity. In the final match of the WAC Tournament which would guarantee the Broncos a bid in the NCAA Tournament and a shot at the national title, Klamczynska fell in a heart breaking defeat to Fresno State, in what would be her last post-season tournament as a Bronco. Following penalties imposed by the NCAA on the women’s tennis athletic program, Boise State will begin serving their one-year post season ban in 2011, eliminating their chance at a Mountain West championship and NCAA tournament bid. However, Klamcyznska said she hasn’t lost any motivation on the court because of the sanctions. “I will practice the same way that I’m supposed to and I try to not think about it. I try to focus on the matches that we are playing in,” Klamcyznska said. Despite the setbacks the Broncos are facing, second year Head Coach Beck Roghaar isn’t taking any breaks because of uncontrollable circumstances. “As far as any sanctions are concerned, we’re not in control of that,” Roghaar said. “From our point of view, we know what we’re up against and we’re going to move forward. It’s a new program and it’s an exciting time.” In his first year as head coach, Roghaar led the Broncos to a 17-8 record and was crowned Coach of the Year by the Western Athletic Conference. Roghaar played on the men’s tennis team from 2001-05 and said his time as a student athlete has really helped him relate to the girls making the tough transition from high school. “One thing that I always try to do is make sure these girls and these young student athletes get that same experience that I did,” Roghaar said. “I had so much fun, that I want everyone that comes through our program to have the same experience.” Helping him guide the athletes is newly appointed Assistant Coach Catrina Thompson, who was the number one singles and doubles player for Notre Dame University and a three time All American tennis player. “I can’t say enough about what (Thompson) brings to the program. She’s had experience in tennis at the highest levels that you can possibly have,” Roghaar said.
Sanctions or no sanctions, our goals are always going to be the same. We want to become better tennis players, student athletes and friends. We’re going to be there for each other and get better. —Beck Rogahaar

Senior Sonia Klamczynska returns a serve during a practice at Appleton Tennis Complex. The Broncos will play at home Friday, Sept. 30. One thing the coaching staff emphasizes more than anything with this squad is unity. The goals for the team go far beyond the tennis courts, with the hopes of developing strong relationships that last long after the volleys stop. “Sanctions or no sanctions, our goals are always going to be the same,” Roghaar said about his team. “We want to become better tennis players, student athletes and friends. We’re going to be there for each other and get better.” The Broncos will use the same mindset when they prepare for their spring season with five fall tournaments, the second being held at Boise State from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2. Regardless of the NCAA’s ruling, rest assured that the Broncos, led by senior Sonia Klamczynska, will be the ones breaking hearts in 2011.

When college football fans talk about program changing recruits, generally they talk about their team getting five-star recruits from traditionally known football states. The Florida, Texas and California type of kid. Idaho typically isn’t known as a hot-bed for recruiters. However, the Broncos have found a handful of players from their own backyard, capable of performing at an extremely high level. The 2011 Boise roster lists 27 players who were prepped in Idaho high schools. In the game of college recruiting if you can make a play they will find you, regardless of where you’re from. Senior linebacker Byron Hout is from Coeur d’Alene, more than 400 miles north. He was plucked right out of Idaho Vandal territory after a stellar career for the Lake City Vikings. In 2006, he was the Idaho Statesman 5A State Player of the Year, also capturing the Idaho Gatorade Player of the Year as a senior. “Basically if you graduate from that area, you go to the University of Idaho,” Hout said. “I wanted to stay in state, but also get out a little bit.” Hout came to Boise in 2008 as a linebacker originally and was moved to defensive end. The past two seasons though, he’s found his way back home to his natural linebacker position. Boise State has managed to target the state’s top talent regardless of region. Junior linebacker J.C.Percy is from Blackfoot, a town with slightly more than 11,000 people. Percy, one of Idaho’s top players as a senior in high school, joined the Broncos as a walk-on in 2008, and has been a solid contributor since, eventually earning himself a scholarship. Tyler Shoemaker, who has emerged as Kellen Moore’s favorite target in this young season, leads the team with four touchdown receptions. “Shoe” graduated from Mountain View High, a school right on the outskirts of Boise headed into Meridian. Capital High School, located in Boise’s west side of town has also become a strong pipeline for the Broncos. Currently the blue and orange have five former Eagles on their roster, including standout performers Kyle Efaw and Jarrell Root. CHS defensive coordinator John Gough also coached Boise State from 1987 to 1992. “They’re a top-10 program in the nation, that goes to major bowl games and is highly successful,” Steve Sosnowski, Capital athletic director, whose son Kyle is a freshman tight end for the Broncos, said. “Once you meet the coaching staff, I don’t know why anyone from here would want to go anywhere else.”

Boise State vs. Tulsa
Preparing for the Hurricane A forecast for how Boise State will weather in the Tulsa football battle John Garretson
Online Sports Editor Board up the windows, buy out the nearest Albertson’s or Winco, and hide above ground, a hurricane is coming to town. A Golden Hurricane to be exact, one that has not beaten Boise State in the previous five times they have met. So, maybe it’s a bit of an exaggeration. The Tulsa Golden Hurricanes (1-2, 1-0 Conference USA) come to the Blue Turf for the first time since 2003, this Saturday at 6 p.m. to square off against the No. 4 ranked Boise State Broncos (2-0, 0-0 Mountain West). “Last time we were ranked whatever and went down there, we got out by the skin of our teeth. We know how tough Tulsa will play, without question,” Boise State Head Football Coach Chris Petersen said. Coming off a three-week period of facing two top 10 opponents, in-state adversaries No. 1 Oklahoma and No. 7 Oklahoma State, there’s no time for a breather for the Golden Hurricanes. It hasn’t been the easiest of schedules for Tulsa to start off with, first with a 4714 blowout loss to the Sooners in Norman and a 59-33 loss to the Cowboys in Stillwater that started at 12:30 a.m. because of weather delays. First year coach Bill Blakenship has not had an smooth commencement to his head coaching debut. However, there is light and promise to the struggling Golden Hurricane squad. The running game has been dominated by sophomores for Tulsa: Trey Watts has been paving the way for Tulsa’s ground attack, gaining 266 yards on 45 attempts for an average of 5.8 a carry, complemented by Ja’Terian Douglas, who has carried the ball
26 times for 239 yards and two scores. With the tandem amassing more than 500 yards, Boise State must be primed and ready on the forefront to contain the two. Another key offensive threat for the Golden Hurricane is junior wide receiver Bryan Burnham. The 6’2” Mooretowns, NJ native seems to be a hot target for senior dual-threat quarterback GJ Kinne, catching 13 passes for 230 yards and five touchdowns. Kinne himself has more than 600 yards of total offense this season. “I like their offense, they’re creative and can run the ball, they throw it, they spread you out, they do it all,” Petersen said. “You got to prepare for a running quarterback. Kinne is an excellent QB. He’s a game and I’m impressed what he can with his feet and throwing. He just gets a lot of yards in creative ways.” Fortunately for the Broncos, Kinne will be out this week with a knee injury. This game marks Boise State’s first home game of the season, almost a month since the Georgia game Sept. 3, which makes this match-up a bit thrilling. Junior offensive lineman Joe Kellogg is expected to return from injury, senior safety Cedric Febis has been name a starter on the official depth chart, and fullback Dan Paul will return to the lineup this week. A concern for Boise State that is still being dissected is the kicking game, in which redshirt freshman Dan Goodale and junior Michael Frisina have done well at practice but have not transitioned well for in-game use, both missing an extra point in last week’s win over Toledo. True freshman Jake Van Ginkel has officially been added to the kicking competition. Kickoff will start at 6 p.m. at Bronco Stadium and will be televised on the CBS Sports Network.
