Junior running back sought by 12 schools By Marquavius Burnett Sports Editor

General Admission

Northridge junior running and five-star prospect Bo Scarbrough verbally committed to The University of Alabama late Friday night after his Northridge Jaguars defeated Hillcrest, 23-15. Scarbrough, a 6-foot-2, 222pound junior, had offers from 12 major schools — Alabama, Mississippi State, Auburn, Troy, UCLA, Georgia, Florida, Florida State, Michigan, Arkansas, Vanderbilt and Clemson. Following the win, Scarbrough, with a big smile on his face, said “I just committed to Alabama.” “It’s been on my mind since day one, and I was trying to hold out until my 12th grade year, but I couldn’t hold it anymore,” Scarbrough said. “I just had to say ‘Roll Tide.’” “I looked at every school, and I saw what types of backs they had, and I think I’ll fit perfectly in Alabama’s offense,” Scarbrough said. “I want to run behind lineman like D.J. Fluker and play in the backfield with backs like T.J. Yeldon.” Scarbrough is the first commit to Alabama’s 2014 class, giving head coach Nick Saban and his staff a potential running back for the future.

Bo Scarbrough Scarbrough rushed for nearly 1,000 yards as a sophomore before suffering a torn ACL on Oct. 22, 2012. Scarbrough initially announced he would keep his recruitment open until he played in the 2014 Under Armour All-American Game. If Scarbrough fullfils his committment, he will be a freshman when T.J. Yeldon is a junior, which could give Alabama a one-two punch that could rival that of Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson. Ingram and Richardson used power, elusivness and speed to keep defenders off balance. Ingram started the games, softening up the defenses for Richardson to come in and punish teams into submission during the 2009 season. Ingram, at 5-foot-10, and Richardson, at 5-foot-9, were built low to the ground, and both had the ability to run through, around or past defenders. SEE SCARBROUGH PAGE 5

Machine Fraternity Professional Fraternity Exclusively Male Co-ed

Block seating still mostly male, white By Melissa Brown News Editor The Student Government Association’s new block seating application shuffled studentseating arrangements Saturday, as the S-3 section was returned to general student admission while 36 student organizations received reserved sections in the south end zone. The online application process, graded by third-party business Campus Labs, resulted in a non-greek organization ranking in the top five and traditional Machine

fraternities losing coveted front row blocks. SGA president Matt Calderone said the application, an Excel spreadsheet designed by Campus Labs, was available on the SGA website. Organizations were expected to collect academic, service and leadership information from their members to submit on the password-protected application. Campus Labs then scored and ranked the applications. “The scores are sent from Campus Labs back to Student Affairs,” Calderone said. “Then a representative from Student Affairs, a representative from athletics and I sit down and make the map according to the scores; altogether we decided

the most ideal spots based on maps from previous years.” Some fraternities that belong to the Machine, a secret political coalition of traditionally white fraternities and sororities, saw their seating placement deteriorate after the implementation of the automated process. The Kappa Alpha Order fraternity, which was given a front row block in the S-3 section after the University temporarily expanded block seating last year, will now be seated in one of the blocks furthest from the field. Sigma Alpha Epsilon, which was seated on the second row last year, was given a fifthrow block.

Increasing amount of jobs requiring bachelor’s degree Study finds college needed to succeed By Mazie Bryant Staff Reporter

It is a tough job market for college graduates but far worse for those without a college education. — Anthony P. Carnevale

With student debt at an all-time high and no guarantee of post-graduate jobs, a recent study by Georgetown University found that a bachelor’s degree may be the only saving grace to help students weather the economic downpour. Released in August by Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce, the study found

that more than 2.2 million jobs require a minimum of a bachelor’s degree have been created since the 2007 start of the recession. At the same time, jobs that require only a high school diploma have decreased by 5.8 million in that same time. Ahmad Ijaz, the director of economic forecasting at

The University of Alabama’s Center for Business and Economic Research, believes the study is an accurate portrayal of the current job market facing students today. However, with an increase in jobs comes an increase in competition. “Competition increases every year, especially when

the economy is like this,” Ijaz said. “More people go to college, and then, many people go to graduate school, which adds to the competition.” Ijaz believes with an influx of college students in the job search, bachelor’s degrees have become the new norm. “The economy is just slow,” he said. “People who can’t find jobs either accept lesser jobs or go back to school. Therefore, master’s degrees have pretty much become the new bachelor’s degree. Once the economy starts going again, it may go back, but right now, it’s how it is.” Though a bachelor’s

of manual labor and manufacturing jobs leave careers that require a higher level of education. “This is something that has been going on for quite a while now,” Ijaz said. “With more manufacturing plants going overseas and using more advanced technology, jobs require higher levels of education and higher skill levels.” Allie Di Giulian, a UA graduate in history, points out that this increase in educational expectations isn’t new.

Carnevale, the Georgetown Center’s director and co-author of the report, in the study’s press release. “At a time when more and more people are debating the value of postsecondary education, this data shows that your chances of being unemployed increase dramatically without a college degree.” Ijaz said the outsourcing

Women’s Golf team hoping for excellence By CW Staff The No. 1 Alabama women’s golf team shot 289, 1-over-par, in the opening round of the 2012 Cougar Classic on the par-72, 6,219-yard Yeamans Hall Club. The Crimson Tide is tied for seventh but with only four shots off the lead of Southern California (-3, 285). Duke, Florida and Virginia are tied for second at 2-under 286 with Georgia in fifth at 287 and Auburn sixth at evenpar 288. Alabama is tied with Vanderbilt. “It was just an average round,” head coach Mic Potter said. “We had a lot of chances and didn’t convert them very well, so I’m hoping we can make a few more putts tomorrow and we will be fine. We played an average round and we are still within striking distance of the leaders, so that is encouraging.” Senior Jennifer Kirby shot

a 2-under-par 70 in Sunday’s opening round. She is tied for eighth place after a round that featured five birdies, a bogey and a double bogey. Kirby teed off on the 10th hole and made the turn on the 18th hole at 1-over par. She then played bogey-free golf with three birdies on her closing nine holes. Junior Stephanie Meadow and true freshman Emma Talley both carded even-par rounds of 72 on the first day of action and are tied for 21st position. Meadow was steady throughout her round with two birdies and two bogeys while Talley made four birdies but saw double bogeys on no. 1 and no. 12 damage her round. Sophomore Daniela Lendl, who made her first appearance in Alabama’s starting lineup, counted toward the Tide score at 3-over 75, tied for 73rd. Hannah Collier shot 77 and did count toward the team tally.

High speed chase ends at Innisfree By Tray Smith Online Editor A high-speed police chase ended just outside of Innisfree early Saturday morning, at the intersection of University Boulevard and 20th Ave. Tuscaloosa Police Department officers pursued a black truck through the Strip as many students were leaving bars and restaurants. Matt Ford, a UA junior who was on the Strip at the time, said police had blocked the intersection between 12th Ave. and University Boulevard, apparently trying to keep the area clear of traffic when the chase came through the area. “They had shot out all four tires. We could smell the tires,” Ford said. “He was driving on rims. There was smoke blowing out behind him.”

Jake Gray, a UA senior, saw the chase end as he was leaving Innisfree. “A minimum of 12 to 15 cop cars were chasing one black truck,” Gray said. “All the tires were blown out. The chase ended at the corner at the intersection by Innisfree. It was a high-speed chase.” Chris Dodson, a reporter for BamaHammer.com, said he saw the chase begin on 15th Street. “I was driving down Fifteenth and just got out of McDonald’s and went down Veterans Memorial Parkway. I looked behind me and saw three to four police cars and looked back again and there’s 10 to 15 police cars following a black pickup truck. “It had its lights turned off, its windows were tinted,” Dodson said. TPD has not responded to a request for comment.

AT&T service on Gameday receives mixed emotions By Adam Mills Contributing Writer More than 100,000 football fans served as a strenuous test for a newly-installed antenna system intended to improve wireless phone coverage in Bryant-Denny Stadium and reported mixed feelings about the efficency of this year’s addition. The DAS, or distributed antenna system, in Bryant-Denny Stadium is made up of 715 antennas designed and placed to boost signal inside the stadium. Mark Beeler of the UA Office of Land Management said AT&T and Verizon Wireless worked together to install the system in BryantDenny Stadium. “The DAS installation was approved by the UA Board of Trustees in January,” Beeler said, “Work to install the system began shortly thereafter.”

The system was put to the test on Saturday during the Tide’s first home game against Western Kentucky University, and student comments on cellular coverage ranged from outstanding to awful. Kelvin Williams, a graduate student in the masters of accountancy program, said his service in the stadium was “excellent.” Williams uses AT&T. “Today was a good day in the land of LG slide phones in BryantDenny,” Williams said Saturday. “I had no problems communicating. I was able to make and receive phone calls to my mama in [Birmingham] and from a friend in the stadium. I was also able to text without delays or backups. I had a quick, steady text [conversation] with a friend in the stadium just after kickoff.” Susan Hurwitz, a sophomore majoring in psychology, used

Sprint. Hurwitz said her phone had never worked in BryantDenny Stadium during games in seasons past, but she had no problems sending or receiving texts and phone calls during the game. The game day experience for others was not as fortunate. For many, it was back to the familiar territory of dropped calls, message send failures and no chance of using mobile Internet services. Some students said they could distinguish no change at all. “I couldn’t even get or make calls, let alone texts,” said Hannah Hicks, an AT&T-using senior majoring in philosophy and religious studies. Chris Schmidt, a junior majoring in civil engineering, used Verizon and also had coverage issues. “Before the game it worked better [than last year],” he said,

“but during the game, I had no data coverage at all.” Shane Perry, a graduate student in secondary education and language arts could see no change from last year. As an AT&T user, he said he could send texts at a delayed rate but couldn’t access the Internet at all. The problem with coverage in Bryant-Denny Stadium is caused by the sheer numbers of users trying to access networks at once, Beeler said. “Simply put, [the issue with cellular coverage] was a matter of capacity,” Beeler said. “The large amount of traffic during gamedays was overwhelming the existing cellular network.” Lance Skelly, director of news relations for AT&T, noted the problem with call volume, but said that football stadiums themselves present issues to coverage

All but 6 of 34 blocks are exclusively male BLOCK SEATING FROM PAGE 1 Meanwhile, Sigma Phi Epsilon, a non-Machine fraternity, was given front row seats. President A.J. Collins believes this year’s third-party application was fairer than in past years. “The historical power structures on this campus have in the past dictated where organizations would sit. We were optimistic and hoped we would be seated objectively,” Collins said. “I’m just really excited that a fair and objective process has placed the organizations that value academics, leadership and service up front.” Air Force ROTC Detachment 010, which ranked fourth with 367, received the block farthest from the field in S-5. The block is located behind the lowestranked fraternity Phi Sigma Kappa, which scored 191 points. The Cadet Wing Commander said the placement was a result of a late application fee.

professional and college sports’ biggest stages at championship games in Indianapolis, New Orleans, Arlington, Texas and others,” Skelly said. Bryant-Denny Stadium’s 715 antenna DAS will be challenged again on Sept. 22, when the Tide takes on Florida Atlantic University.

“A l t h o u g h AFROTC Detachment 010 is disappointed with the block seating arrangement, we recognize the Student Government Association had rules in place,” Zachary J. Taylor said. “We respect the Student Government Association and the university that it represents, and we still look forward to cheering on the Tide this fall.” Organizations submitted a desired number of seats according to their membership numbers, which was then multiplied by 1.7 to account for the number of guests – often female dates – each member can bring with them. While any guests must have student tickets or follow the upgrade rules as student guests in general admission, they are reserved spots in block seating up to 45 minutes before gametime. All but six of the 34 organizations that applied for block seating are exclusively male greek fraternities. The remaining organizations are co-educational organizations, other than the Alpha Kappa Alpha

sorority. No other sororities applied for block seating. “I encourage all organizations to apply regardless of gender,” Calderone said. The Crimson White contacted several sorority presidents to comment on the lack of female participation in block seating. One president declined to comment and others did not return phone calls by press time. Bonnie Denman, a sophomore majoring in management information systems, said that while some have touted the new application process as fair, block seating is still systemically inequitable to women and the general student body. “I know I’ve gotten to the games two and half hours early, and people show up to the game last-minute and get great seats, and that’s not very fair. They end up leaving before most of the students in general seating as well,” Denman said. “I would say get rid of it all together and let it be first come, first serve. Just make it known that if you get there early, you get a good seat.”

Discrepancy exists between President Barack Obama’s resume, results By Robert Frye Staff Columnist Depending on who you ask, being the President of the United States of America is either the most or least coveted job in the entire world. The responsibilities the job entails are innumerable, and the pressures felt while in office have sufficed to grey the hair of many who have taken up the mantle. The presidency, at its heart, is still a job, and the president is essentially a manager working to make his salary and impress his boss. It should come of no surprise to you that his boss is every other citizen of voting age in these United States. For many, this is the first

instance in which they will be given this level of responsibility. As the president’s bosses, the time has come for our quadrennial employee review, and the season is ripe for us as a people to decide if President Barack Obama’s tenure as the face of our government should be extended or granted to another man who has shown up to his interview wielding a rather strong resume. Although the United States of America might not be the largest in terms of size or population when compared to other nations throughout the world, our success as both an industrial and economic machine is unparalleled in the history of mankind. We have had our ups and downs as the years have

gone by, but they have always come with nearly cyclical predictability between economic highs and lows. President Obama began his time here with our nation in the midst of the Great Recession, but he earned his office with promises of hope and change for all of America. Since those promises were made, the cycle of ups and downs that has occurred since the dawn of the modern international economy has been replaced by the greatest impediment to progress - stagnation. During this stagnation, we have incurred so much debt that the entire United States government has come within weeks of bankruptcy, potentially threatening the stability of not just

our nation but the entire world in which we rely on to fuel our fantastic standard of living. Jobs have been created and certain civil rights have been protected, but even more jobs have been lost, and the guys at the airport still reserve the right to either take naked pictures of you or fondle you before you board your flight. President Obama is a man of great resolve and courage, but when compared to what he promised us during his interview four years ago, the current reality he has created as the leader of our nation is a far cry from the assurances that got him both his current job and a Nobel Peace Prize. The other applicant for the President of the United States

Campus growth has potential under Bailey By SoRelle Wyckoff Opinions Editor It’s not that I am against campus growth. With growth comes better resources and opportunities. What I am against is how we have grown. The unnecessary growing pains and strains have associated the idea of “growth” with negative experiences. There is a lack of adequate facilities for our current population. Consider ten Hoor’s human traffic jam or traffic jams involving cars on campus; many of these discomforts could be avoided with proper preparation. Unfortunately, the University has made a habit of playing “catch up” with the numbers rather than preparing itself for the people it knows are heading its way. A new recreation center is supposedly on the way, but only after our current recreation center turned into one big waiting line for treadmills between the hours of 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. But accepting the fact that our campus is growing and will continue to grow, I am putting my sword back in its scabbard and saving it for a fight for which I have a

chance. Last week, Guy Bailey, the new UA president, reaffirmed the continuation of Robert Witt’s goal of increasing enrollment. Despite many students voicing concern over more masses, the increase is inevitable. More people than ever are attending college, precipitating an increased enrollment around the country. Also, this university is seen as a business to many, especially those in charge. The main goal of a business is to make money. Yet while the pursuit of 36,000 students was Witt’s, the method of pursuit is now up to President Bailey. While at Texas Tech, President Bailey orchestrated record-high enrollment for the school. Perhaps it is because of the vast Lubbock backdrop, but the increase of population did not translate into discomfort at Tech. Instead, it became synonymous with growth of quality. There are many similarities between Bailey and Witt, and after all, Chancellor Witt is technically still in charge. However, Bailey’s experience at Texas Tech and his background in academia indicate his views on campus growth are

Assuming, as an educator, that Bailey will look at The University of Alabama as a place of higher education and not a cash cow waiting to get milked, the project might actually be student-centered. The numbers may be the same, but the experience should be different. It must be different for the University to remain a sought-after educational experience. Increasing growth is admirable, but if it is done in sloppy fashion the unrest of the masses may overshadow the original desire. Proper planning prevents poor performance, and the University needs to prepare for the future rather than wait until the future is already trying to move into its new dorm room. Bailey has grown a school before, so his experience leads me to believe he knows what he is doing. Potentially, this period of growth could be a smoother, smarter and more comfortable experience than the previous one.

ernment no longer recognize themselves as leaders of one unified nation but rather as leaders of a liberal nation and a conservative nation. They then set about poisoning their own constituency with their own hatred, fear and shameful lack of respect for their fellow countrymen. The result is that the masses fall into an accursed state of apathy and malaise, no longer seeking what is best for the nation but rather becoming servants to the hegemony and bureaucracy of corrupt politicians on both sides of the aisle. This ensures that those who are in power will remain in power and that the voice of the people will be secondary to the voice of the people’s representatives. Meanwhile, while the nation bickers and fights amongst itself, the debt of our nation rises, and our once proud “Empire of Liberty” grows weak and fearful. What has happened to the republic of the people? I look to the day when apathy is sacrificed upon the altar of ambition. I look to the day when we will once again be a united people. This day will never come, however, unless the youth of today take up the cause of true liberty and common sense.

As I sit here looking out over the Quad, I am struck by the relative peace that hangs over the campus. Friends of all ages, backgrounds, faiths and political views walk side-by-side in harmony as they go to classes and prepare for the future. As a freshman, this is truly an experience unlike any other. Sadly, it is also an experience that is growing less common in the United States. Currently, it feels as if the very course of man, history and nature itself is preparing for nothing short of all-out war and chaos. In Tampa, we see the 2012 Republican National Convention calling for the end of the Obama presidency and a long awaited unity within the nation through its presidential candidate, Governor Mitt Romney. A now tainted hope, as the convention draws almost daily attacks. Before the convention had even begun, members of Occupy Tampa were arrested while protesting outside the convention for posing a security risk to the many party officials within the convention. One of the mottos which has always been at the heart of the United States is “E.

students can expect to receive some sort of special or discount in the near future. “We’ll definitely have some kind of something for students,” Graham said. “There will definitely be some kind of encouragement for them. We just don’t know what that will be yet.” T-Town Café does not have a set opening date yet, but Ryan and Graham look for the restaurant to open within two to three weeks.

UA junior publishes collection of short stories on Amazon “ By Nathan Proctor Staff Reporter

In this age of e-books and e-commerce, achieving your dreams comes one step closer to reality for amateur authors. Lauren Alexander, a junior majoring in English, published her first work, “Breathe: An Anthology” onto the Amazon store this past August as an e-book compatible with Kindle devices. The 43-story anthology features works up to four pages long, most keeping to a page in length. According to Alexander, her stories are presented in portraits and monologues on topics ranging from love and heartbreak to murder and thought. She recalled her first taste of writing coming via the creation of short picture stories as a child, which led to her to writing short stories by the fourth grade.

“[The stories] were really random,” Alexander said. “When I was younger, they were just kind of something I did.” She specifically remembered a Halloween story written for class in elementary school prompting her mother to playfully suggest she become an author one day. “It was kind of one of those dreams you don’t think will really happen,” Alexander said. Throughout middle school and high school, she wrote and wrote, sporadically picking away at book ideas and crafting quick, random stories. Though tied together by reflections on morality and her thoroughly detailed style of writing, both of which are still evident in her work, the writings and her creative motivations mirrored her own varied experiences growing up in Tuscaloosa.

My goal with my writing is to try and connect with people. With so many different styles and genres, it’s easier for someone to pick one up and connect with it. — Lauren Alexander

“My goal with my writing is to try and connect with people and since my writing comes from so many different stages of my life, sometimes a story will show what I was going through at the time,” Alexander said. “With so many different styles and genres, it’s easier for someone to pick one up and connect with it.” While attending Hillcrest High School, Alexander’s teachers began to take more interest in her writings and brought her to realize that if she could finish a project and send it out, she

Book club promotes interaction By Meredith Davis Contributing Writer

In an attempt to promote a discussion of race and medical ethics, the Honors Book Club will host a series of events centered on the book, “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot. The book tells the story of how stem cells were unknowingly harvested from Lacks, a black woman from Baltimore, and later used in countless areas of medial research. The Book Club’s series of events are meant to engage students in thoughtful discussion and allow them to interact with professors who specialize in some of the book’s themes. The first event, a screening of the documentary “The Way

of All Flesh,” will take place at 7 p.m. in Gorgas Library, 205 on Sept. 10. The movie screening will serve as an introduction to the life of Henrietta Lacks with an introduction by Professor Lisa Lindquist-Dorr, an associate professor of the UA department of history. Other events in the series

will take place throughout the semester, including open discussions with professors. Those looking to get involved in the Honors Book Club are invited to attend, even if they haven’t read the book. “We don’t have a straightforward book club where students get together and discuss the book – instead, we will have a range of fascinating speakers, documentary screenings and discussion forums that will inspire further discussion for students,” Amy Holmes-Tagchungdarpa, assistant professor in the department of history, said.

could actually be published. However, it wasn’t until this August that her cache of 43 short stories, written during a time span from ninth grade to her sophomore year of college, was truly ready to go out into the world. It was Alexander’s high school friend Christian Smitherman, now a junior at the University, who brought the idea of independent publication to her. Smitherman, who had read Alexander’s work in high school, suggested via Facebook that she consider self-publishing

through the Amazon Store as an e-book to get her work out. “She’s able to convey emotion and convey feelings,” said Smitherman. “I’m not much of a poetry or literature person… but anything I ever read of hers just leaves me breathless.” After looking through the publishing process, Alexander collected and formatted her works until 2:00 a.m. on August 22, when she put the collection online. She said Smitherman was the first to read her newly collected works. “She just conveys emotions at their rawest levels,” Smitherman said. “Now with these new stories, I’m able to see these other sides of Lauren I’ve never seen before.” According to Alexander, the response from her supporting family and friends continues to be strong and motivational,

but she was surprised to hear pieces of advice from publishers and writers through social media avenues. Since her publication, Alexander said she hopes to submit her work to Kindle Singles, an Amazon venue showcasing selected works by new authors. Additionally, she expressed her hope of pursuing more traditional approaches to publication while honing her authorial voice through further short story and novel writing. “It took a while for it to really settle in [that I’m published], and sometimes I think to myself, ‘Oh it’s not a big deal,’” Alexander said. “But in reality, getting published has always been my dream and now if one person reads the collection, and it affects them the way I want it to, it was worth it.”

COLUMN | FASHION

Tuscaloosa offers options for Gameday fashion By Abbey Crain The women of The University of Alabama can be quick to condemn Tuscaloosa as a place completely void of any decent shopping experiences and assume trips to Birmingham’s Summit and Galleria are necessary monthly events to catch up with the latest trends. We may not have a huge number of trendy boutiques, but the stores we do have are more than adequate for all of our sartorial game day needs. I decided to share my quest for a game day outfit that could also transition into everyday wear in hopes of helping out a fellow spirited fashion lover. I decided to shop White House Black Market at Midtown Village, hoping the name meant I could find pieces featuring the colors associated with the famous Paul “Bear” Bryant houndstooth hat. The overall aesthetic of the store may seem too matronly for the average college student, but on closer evaluation, WHBM revealed plenty of classically styled pencil skirts, ankle length pants and structured tops that are a must for every girl’s closet. Luckily for Alabama fans, red was the featured accent color found throughout the store of black and white apparel. This made it easy to find appropriate game day combinations of red pants with a patterned black and white top or a houndstooth skirt with a red sweater. If you are the sort of girl who gives way to comfort when strutting the game day runway known as the

Quad sidewalk, WHBM had an extensive collection of black, white and red heels perfect for pairing with pencil skirts and patterned dresses. In addition to the classic pieces found at WHBM, I decided to check out the game day trends at two boutiques on the Strip. Private Gallery proved ideal for the woman who refuses to wear the red, jerseyknit, one-shouldered dress that almost every girl on campus wears to the first game. PG featured everything from grey brocade-style shorts and sheer crimson button-downs to bright red rompers and houndstooth pea coats. This store is perfect for a more abstract game day look that emphasizes current trends rather than typical game day fashions. Sassy Britches, also located on the Strip, contained a plethora of game day apparel options, much like Private Gallery’s and equally as expensive. I expected with less brand name items, SB would be the more economic option of the two, but I was surprised. SB featured red patterned prints, which seem to be the most popular game day look and I found myself loving the houndstooth print shorts offered at SB - perfect for the rest of the September games. After Saturday’s game, I was able to conclude many UA women saved their brand new game day dresses for the more “important” home games after seeing the vast amount of football jerseys that Saturday’s female fans adorned. If you have not found the perfect outfit for this season of Crimson

Shopping at various stores around Tuscaloosa is a great way to put together a Gameday outfit.

For successful coaches, creativity necessary when trying to motivate team By Marquavius Burnett Sports Editor When a coach is as successful as Alabama’s Nick Saban has been in recent years, creativity is key when trying to motivate a team. Whether it is a rant to the media about not respecting an opponent or getting on to the team for committing a penalty, Saban uses every tactic possible to get the Tide prepared week in and week out. If Alabama has a bad practice, Saban comes into his media availability and barks at the local reporters for writing negative stories about the Tide’s opponent. He says it is unfair to not give teams like Western Kentucky respect

(even though Alabama was a 40 point favorite). He goes on about how it is not fair to his team or Western Kentucky because of how hard they work to get where they are. But Saban really has a hidden agenda when he gives the media a scowl. The coach knows his team will watch the countless number of videos or hear about him erupting through social media. This is how he gets his message across when it is not effective at practice. Saban understands the basic principle of being successful: it is human nature to get complacent. He watched it happen in 2010 when a supremely talented Alabama team dropped three very winnable games.

The team’s focus has been not succumbing to complacency. It is what the coaching staff preaches to the players and what the players regurgitate to the media. So Alabama’s lackluster effort in its 35-0 beating of Western Kentucky was expected. Even though the Tide is a national power, the team still has a tendency to take its foot off the gas and play down to its competition. The offensive line, which is being hyped as the best in the country, allowed six sacks and multiple quarterback hurries. The line also struggled to create holes for the running backs as the team was held to 103 rushing yards compared to the 232 against Michigan.

“At least three of the sacks somebody got beat on the edge,” Saban said. “Couple other times, we probably held the ball – the last one we held the ball, no one was really open.” The scary thing is that Alabama’s team is not even close to being a finished product, but it is still one of the three or four best teams in the country (along with USC, LSU and Oregon). If Alabama’s secondary continues to develop and the offensive line protects McCarron, this team has the potential to repeat. The first major test for the Tide will be this Saturday against Arkansas. The Razorbacks feature a dynamic offense,

VOLLEYBALL

Crimson Tide wins Hampton Inn tournament By Mary Grace Showfety Staff Reporter The Alabama volleyball team secured another tournament-win this weekend in the Hampton Inn Bama Bash as they dominated in Foster Auditorium, dropping only one set all weekend. Outside hitter Kayla Fitterer said the biggest thing that the team can take away from this weekend’s play is confidence. Fitterer played in her first home match on Friday night against Austin Peay where she posted her 26th career double double with 18 kills and 12 digs. The senior has taken practice and play on a day-to-day basis as she continues to recover from an off-season foot surgery. “I’m back in as much as I

can be right now,” Fitterer said after the tournament-clinching match against East Tennessee State. “I took off this morning and yesterday morning to rest, but I’ll be good now to play in all of the games from here.” Fitterer posted seven kills and seven digs against ETSU. The Tide’s performance in the Bama Bash landed Sierra Wilson, Katherine White and Laura Steiner spots on the alltournament team with Steiner earning the title of Most Valuable Player. Steiner, a freshman outside hitter, finished the tournament with a hitting percentage of .358, 34 kills over four matches and an average of 3.40 kills per set played. “I didn’t actually know I was playing until right before the game so I just went in there

trying to have a good match to finish the tournament out, and I ended up with some kills so that was nice,” Steiner said. With a match-high 12 kills versus ETSU, Steiner showed her ability to step up, even as a freshman. “I think you always have to prepare yourself thinking that you might go in - especially if someone is not performing their best that you might get thrown in there,” Steiner said. The tournament gave the Tide many opportunities to see growth in almost every member of the team. “We’re getting balanced, and we’re really pleased with Laura Steiner’s performance as a freshman from the outside,” head coach Ed Allen said. “She’s giving us a great deal of consistency and

exploiting the block with her offense. Again, Sierra Wilson continues to grow as a leader and quarterback of this team. She still has a long way to go, but she’s in a better place than she was two weeks ago.” In the four matches played, Wilson posted 157 total assists, giving her an average of 12.1 assists per set. “We identified several things that we need to work on,” Allen said of his team’s overall weekend play. “I also thought we had a little bit more consistency in most parts of play except for attacking in that last match.” The 10-1 Tide returns to Foster Auditorium on Tuesday to take on Samford in its last non-conference match before opening up SEC play against LSU.

lead by quarterback Tyler Wilson. If healthy, Wilson is an elite passer with a big arm and the ability to make every throw on the field. Arkansas’ defense is not elite by SEC standards, but it will be considerably better than Western Kentucky’s, which did a pretty good number to Alabama’s offensive line. Alabama knows it cannot play the same way in week

three as it did in week two because the Hogs have serious upset potential. But this could all be a setup. Alabama could be waiting for another quality opponent to embarrass like it did the Wolverines. “It’s just a young team being young,” wide receiver Kevin Norwood said of the team’s struggles. For Saban and the local media’s sake, let’s hope so.

Today’s Birthday (09/10/12). It’s becoming clear what’s truly important, and it’s not all about work. Maybe this realization, and a few favorable eclipses, are helping your career take off this year. Let go of stuff that no longer serves you. Expand and grow that which enlivens you. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) -- Today is an 8 -- Don’t believe everything you hear, and try not to take yourself too seriously. Talk it over with family, and then choose. Increase compassion. You’re a dynamic teacher. Taurus (April 20-May 20) -- Today is a 7 -- You’re especially persuasive now. Good time to update your resume, or create a new marketing plan. You’re getting even more interested in stability. Rest and cool down. Gemini (May 21-June 20) -- Today is a 6 -- There’s a change at the top. Work becomes fascinating, and surprising. Accept a new assignment. Don’t get into an argument with the one who signs your paychecks. Cancer (June 21-July 22) -- Today is an 8 -- Make the decision and act, quickly. Stay put and keep the pressure on. The rewards are there, even if you can’t see them just yet. Postpone travel. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Today is a 5 -- No need to hurry. Dreams of travel and adventure inspire, but stay put for a few days. Don’t go shopping either. File papers, and increase financial security. Make plans. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- You’re very attractive now, and your

status is rising. There’s no time to waste. Put your wonderful ideas into action, but do stop for directions. Keep asking questions. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Growth possibilities have you excited. Continue improving in the area of career, but don’t get overloaded with gimmicks. Keep receiving instruction. Then the trick’s to practice, practice, practice. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Today is a 7 -- The key is in the listening. Ask for suggestions from an intuitive person, and/or your own subconscious mind. Get what you need to make your home secure. Take care. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Today is a 5 -- An unexpected development may force you to revisit your plans. Seize the opportunity. Your friends help you make the most of it. Talk it over, and make the connection. Stay practical. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Today is a 7 -- You can get whatever you need, if you set your mind to it and take the necessary steps. It will take persistence, and putting up with others rattling your cage. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Today is a 6 -- Focus on your work and be extremely productive all day, and tomorrow. You’re the brains, and the heart, behind the operation. Handle the problems that arise. It’s not a good time to gamble. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Today is an 8 -- Imagination is required to clear the confusion. No problem; it’s one of your strengths now. A change at the top reminds you to make the most of each moment.
