Decades in waiting Davenport ‘finally’ receives Aggie ring Vicky Flores
“I think it’s a good tradition and should continue on as it has been. I got my ring today, and I was very excited.”
The Battalion With apprehension and uneasiness, at 6:45 p.m. David Davenport, agribusiness graduate student, walked through the crowd of young students, making his way to pick up his Aggie ring. “I have been waiting for this ring now, for about 29 years,” Davenport said. “It is going to be a mix of feelings; the word that comes
to mind is ‘finally.’ I guess I am reserved still with my history, and I am still expecting something to go wrong.” Davenport, 47, has been waiting close to three decades to receive his Aggie ring. He has been in and out of A&M, but is on track to graduate with a master’s in agribusiness. “I teach at a community college right now, and does that degree help me with that? Probably not,” Davenport said. “But it was
one of those things that I always wanted to come back and finish up.” Trying for his bachelor’s degree in 1981, he didn’t finish his degree at A&M due to poor grades and then graduated from Texas State. Several times, over the next four decades, Davenport floated in and out of the A&M system, but was never successful at attaining a degree. Davenport said he was never See Ring on page 2

As the weather heats up and the semester comes to a close, more motorcyclists go on the road. Sgt. Blaine Krauter of the College Station Police Department patrols on motorcycle and advises motorcyclists and vehicle drivers to take precaution. “The motorcycles have the same privilege as anyone else on the road does. They’re smaller, they don’t take up the full lane, so
therefore people don’t see them,” Krauter said. Krauter said most accidents occur when a driver is turning left at an intersection and does not see the motorcyclist on the opposite side. Krauter said most drivers enter the motorcyclist’s lane because the motorcyclist was in a blind spot, or the driver did not turn to see if anyone was there. “Motorcyclists always need to be paying attention and mindful of what they’re doing,” said Bart Basile, president of the Texas Ag-
gie Motorcycle Club. “Motorcycling is 90 percent mental and paying attention to what’s going on around you. Even if the car starts going into your lane, you need to be able to react.” While many automobile drivers do not take into consideration their blind spot, motorcyclists have blind spots as well, said Aaron Scarboro, public relations officer for the club. Their mirrors are 5 inches by 3 inches and can reflect less.
Genetics students study bread mold “Rings are cool. I’m really excited to get it. I like what it symbolizes: the Aggie family.”
Sarah Gervais sophomore university studies major
“I think it is one of the greatest traditions that A&M has. Both of my parents went to A&M, and they can strike up a conversation with anyone because of their rings. It really ties us together, so I think it’s one of the best traditions A&M has.” Katy Ralston and Sam Smith — THE BATTALION

■ Aggies gain hands-on experience and course credit through molecular fungal genomics research The degree Genetics is an interdisciplinary graduate degree program administered by the faculty of genetics, which consists of 106 members from 19 departments in the TAMU Colleges of Agriculture, Science and Veterinary Medicine. Students are required to participate in a lab rotation allowing them to explore differing ﬁeld opportunities.
Katy Ralston The Battalion The hands-on experience of the real world of research, and the ability to gain knowledge to help understand human processes, comes together for one group of A&M students through one of the most unusual topics: bread mold. BIOL 489: Special Topics in Fungal Functional Genomics enrolls 11 undergraduate students in the quest for phenotyping the knockout mutants of the Neurospora crassa genome, a type of bread mold. The class is part of a nationwide experiment funded by a National Institutes of Health grant. The grant is in its second five-year term. After spending the first five years as part of a UCLA research program, the experiment was renewed and brought to A&M by Matthew Sachs, the instructor for the course. “The conception of the course is to use the basis of phenotyping a knockout collection as an entree into modern genomics,” Sachs said.

history “The advantage of doing it in a course format is that it is possible to give lectures alongside the lab work to provide a context for those experimental studies.” Phenotyping the knockout deletion mutations allows fundamental biological questions to be asked, said Deborah Bell-Pederson, a biology professor involved in the project. These questions can help gain knowledge about the same processes in humans. “This fungus is a non-pathogenic fungus but it’s a model system for many different things, such as a model for fungal pathogens in plants as well as in humans,” Bell-Pederson said. “It’s also a basic biological system, a eukaryotic organism, so a lot of genes and proteins and pathways and the stuff that the organism does is actually very similar to humans.” The research experience gained in this class is unique to other research opportunities for undergraduates because students are doing an experiment where the answer is not known — which is not true from most standard chemistry and biology lab work, Bell-Pederson said. “Multiple goals are met in this course. By achieving the goal of understanding what the

“They’re equally at fault. I hate the excuse of ‘I didn’t see it,’” Scarboro said. “I understand it’s a motorcycle, but it doesn’t take but two seconds to look over your shoulder. Living in College Station you should know there are motorcyclists everywhere.” Master Officer Kristi Hosea for the University Police Department said drivers should give motorcyclists more room than a car and never pull out in front of one. “I believe today’s motorcyclists would agree that they are just not being seen by drivers and too many drivers are preoccupied by multitasking while driving,” Hosea said. Hosea also said motorcyclists should try to make themselves visible to drivers. “Motorcyclists do have control over being as visible as possible. I recommend motorcyclists wear bright colored helmets and clothing. They should even consider wearing reflective vests or jackets. Being seen, even at the last moment, may be what saves their life,” she said. Scarboro said motorcyclists should be patient and not race home, should always wear a helmet and should not listen to headphones while driving. “A big problem with a lot of motorcyclists these days is that they blame the cars for all the problems out there, and in reality too many motorcyclists these days don’t pay attention as they should,” Basile said. Krauter said motorcyclists need to practice accident prevention techniques before heading out in the road. “For those who are riding bikes, never get overconfident on a bike. Don’t override your abilities on the bike, and don’t override the conditions that are around you. The bike maneuvers totally different than a vehicle,” Krauter said. Krauter also said there are more motorcyclists on the road because more people are riding them because of fuel efficiency.
able to finish because of his mental illness. “The biggest thing is, that I didn’t know, I was bipolar,” Davenport said. “It never crossed my mind that I was bipolar, I knew I had problems, but it’s just one of those things where you just think you are a lazy bum and can’t figure out what’s going on.” After several attempts at master’s degrees, Davenport headed to graduate school in California, but before he left he wanted to make sure he was mentally healthy and was checked for dyslexia. Instead, doctors found the disorder that had been affecting his life since 16.

phenotypes are of the mutants, which is important for understanding the biology of simple eukaryotic organisms, a second major goal is accomplished — providing training for undergraduates that accurately reflects what is like to do modern molecular genetics,” Sachs said. “Students are learning what it is like to work in a research laboratory without cookbook procedures with known results,” Sachs said. Travis Dalton, a senior molecular and cell biology major who is taking the class, said this aspect is what he enjoys most about the class. “We learn a lot of basic biological techniques that we actually get to put in practice in the class which is pretty neat. It’s a lot of hands on which I think is the best way to learn science,” Dalton said. Such real-world research experience is not the only thing this class offers students. Students get to in-
Because of his bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive disorder, Davenport would experience periods of extreme highs and lows. Davenport said since he has been diagnosed, he has had a much happier life. He is on a regimen of medication and for the first time he has held a job for more than nine months. “The best advice I can give is if you think something is wrong go get checked because if there is nothing wrong at least you figured it out; you’re just lazy, sorry, no help there,” Davenport said. Starting his college life wanting to graduate with 12 different degrees, Davenport now has a bachelor’s degree in economics from Texas State, a master’s in finance from California and will soon be able to add his long-awaited Texas A&M degree.
teract with faculty in a more intimate way than in the classroom, Bell-Pederson said. “While this is a numbered course, it is in fact providing opportunities for students to interact with faculty on research projects in which faculty are directly engaged — this is our life’s work,” Sachs said. The student’s work will be used far beyond just A&M. The data students find is compiled to the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard where scientists from around the world can access the information and use it. Sachs said the class is something they would like to permanently establish. Bell-Pederson said the only requirement for the class is an interest in research. “I think it is an amazing opportunity for the students and also the research community to have students involved in this project and getting them excited about science and wanting to stay in science as a career,” Bell-Pederson said. “Our hope is that we would be able to help that blossom and further their commitment to science.”
Davenport’s close friends class of 1991 Phill Mullin and class of ’95 Valerie Mullin joined him in dunking his ring on Northgate. “I am excited for him; he has worked hard; I don’t know anyone who has worked harder,” Valerie said. His college roommate Phill said he has watched Davenport go through obstacles before this moment. “I am very proud of him and very happy for him, I know it is something he has worked for, for a long time,” Phill said. “So I am glad to see it finally happen.” At 7 p.m Davenport walked away from the young crowd with his Aggie ring placed on his finger and a proud smile on his face. “Finally,” Davenport said.

Aggies BTHO each other 2010 Maroon and White Game ends with 102-94 victory for offense Kyle Cunningham The Battalion In front of more than 12,000 fans at Kyle Field, the Texas A&M football team competed in the annual Maroon and White Game. The back and forth scoring war ended with the White (offense) on top of the Maroon (defense), 102-94. Jerrod Johnson ended the spring practices starting at quarterback. Johnson, who will be a senior in the 2010 fall season, went 5-7 in the first drive for 54 yards. Junior running back Cyrus Gray, who finished the Maroon and White Game with 65 yards on 10 carries, ended the first drive with a three yard touchdown run, and the White team took a 14-5 lead after the first drive. “Cyrus Gray, has taken his game to another level,” Head Coach Mike Sherman said. “My criticism to Cyrus was sometimes he was a little bit of a slow starter. He wasn’t always the most instinctive guy. But boy, he has been on the money this spring.” Junior backup quarterback Ryan Tannehill took the most throws with Johnson seeing limited time due to arthroscopic surgery on his throwing shoulder. The quarterback/wide receiver went 10-16 for the game, throwing for 73 yards. Freshmen Matt Joeckel, Patrick O’Quinn and Jameill Showers each took snaps behind center as well. It was Showers who had the

The White team, led by Cyrus Gray’s two rushing scores and 65 yards, defeated the Maroon team 102-94 in front of more than 12,000 fans at Kyle Field on Saturday. better day in the box score, going 7-7 through the air for 43 yards and two touchdowns. Joeckel went 8-13 for 39 yards and one interception.
“I don’t think they hurt us, [but] sometimes they didn’t help us,” Sherman said. “They’ll just get better. This summer will be huge for them.”
Lucas Patterson, who shifted between offensive line and defensive tackle in 2009, played the nose guard position Saturday and flushed the quarterback out of the pocket multiple times. “He just makes plays,” Sherman said. “He’s hard to block. He just has a feel for that position. Hopefully, he can continue to the play the way he’s playing once we start the season. He’s really a force to reckoned with, because we’re having a tough time blocking him.” Senior Von Miller and sophomore defensive back Steven Terrell brought pressure to the passers as well, combining for three sacks. Various players did not play because of injury, including starting running back Christine Michael, but the increased members of players joining the disabled list did nothing to dampen the spirits of the fans. “We’ve had a few players out and some others who were limited today, but I was pleased with the competition on the field,” Sherman said. “I thought the crowd was great, and they seemed to be into the scrimmage. Even with that last drive with some of the younger players I thought kept people interested. I sure appreciated the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band and many of our fans for coming out to the game.” The Aggies will have two practices this week before ending the spring session.
