Ceremony held for new Student Veteran Lounge University opens lounge in Union to aid veterans’ transition, studies BY CHRISSY PAWLOWSKI STAFF WRITER

The Veteran Student Support Services unit hosted the grand opening of the Student Veteran Lounge on Tuesday. The lounge, located on the food court level of the Illini Union, 1401 W. Green St., will be dedicated to military veterans, but is open to all students. The grand opening featured speeches by Dr. Nick Osborne, director of the Veteran Student Support Services, and Renée Romano, vice chancellor of student affairs. After a ribbon cutting ceremony, members of the public, including students in the registered student organization Illini Veterans, were able to receive tours of the lounge. “The lounge is what’s considered to be a best practice in the higher education literature for serving student veterans,” Osborne said. “It provides a combination of social collaborations, relationships

and other veteran-specific information.” Osborne said the Veteran Student Support Services unit had been working on the project since 2009. He said the most important factor to the Illini Veterans for the lounge was location, which he said was achieved in securing the Union. “The Union is one of the best places to be on campus, so we were fortunate to get a good place like that,” he said. In addition to pamphlets and brochures containing information relevant to veterans, the lounge also provides a space for students to socialize and study. Student veteran Elizabeth Ambros, secretary of Illini Veterans and senior in AHS, said she thinks the lounge will be helpful for veterans easing into university life. “It gives new student veterans a spot to go to,” she said. “It’s like a homing beacon.” After serving in the military for eight years, Ambros joined the Illini Veterans in hopes of making friends she could relate to. “The social aspect is really

University updates emergency plans Officials express confidence for bomb threat response changes BY CHRISSY PAWLOWSKI STAFF WRITER

As public safety offi cials nationwide re-evaluate emergency plans following the Sandy Hook shooting last month, University officials remain confident about their recently updated plan. “I’m really particularly proud of the organizational structure that we have been able to put together on campus, meaning who exactly fulfi lls roles and responsibilities,” said University Police Lt. Todd Short. “If in the event we have a major emergency or major disaster, we can know exactly where we’re going ... If you try to defi ne that dur-

Student senate rewording bill’s title Senate committee nixes ‘forever’ from Fighting Illini bill BRENTON TSE THE DAILY ILLINI

Jose Orozco, student in Engineering sits in front of a fireplace and a television in the newly opened Student Veteran Lounge, which is located in the basement of the student union, on Tuesday.

The Illinois Student Senate is debating the use of the word “forever” as it continues discussion of a resolution aimed

at preserving the University’s Fighting Illini identity. On Tuesday, a senate committee removed “forever” from the title of a bill “ensuring our future as Fighting Illini,” though no other appearances of the word were removed. Chris McCarthy, vice chair of the Committee on Campus Affairs and a senior in Engineering, said other use of the word “forever” in the body of the bill will be discussed and possibly amended on the senate floor at its meeting Feb. 6. The resolution, sponsored by student body President Brock Gebhardt, was tabled during last week’s committee meeting in order to add

more cited research to the resolution before presenting it to the floor. Gebhardt said he thinks this resolution is separate from Campus Spirit Revival’s efforts to select a new symbol for the campus. “To say that the mascot and the team name are inextricably linked is false,” he said. “Think about the University of Alabama. They are the Crimson Tide. What is their mascot? It’s an elephant.” If passed, the senate will take the resolution to the board of trustees and the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics.

Student senators to propose campus ban on concealed firearms Senators hope to create gun-free zone around UI BY TYLER DAVIS STAFF WRITER

The Illinois Student Senate is preparing a proposal to present to local police chiefs and University administrators that will draw the boundary of where fi rearms would be allowed should concealed carry legislation pass in Illinois. The proposal, being written


by student senators Christopher Dayton and Nick Larson, is still in preliminary stages. “I’d much rather make sure that we can get our voice heard early, put a bug in (legislators’) ears and make sure that we can keep the campus safe for our students and ensure a proper level of communication about this, rather than just crossing our fi ngers and see what happens,” Dayton said. The proposal will advocate the creation of a buffer zone of campus, in addition to areas covered by current state law and the student code, in which

carrying a concealed weapon would be illegal, depending on how lawmakers regulate concealed carry. By campus law, student possession of a weapon is illegal on any property controlled or owned by the University. Dayton said this buffer zone hasn’t been defi ned yet, but he said he will have a preliminary plan by the Feb. 6 senate meeting. He said he does not think weapons are conducive to student life and that introducing weapons to this campus creates an imbalance of power, as most

students on campus are not yet of age to own a weapon. He also said many aspects of campus culture don’t coincide with fi rearms. He cited an incident that occurred in the 100 block of East John Street on Nov. 4, in which a 22-yearold male reported coming home from a bar and engaging in a physical altercation with his roommate, during which a knife was displayed, and a single shot was fi red through his bedroom door. “If that is not a clear example of what can happen when you mix alcohol and fi rearms, it can

be a very scary prospect as to having potentially more fi rearms on this campus,” he said. Larson also said during last week’s senate meeting that because of the high population density, any sort of fi rearm discharge on campus is an extremely dangerous prospect. This proposal is being based on a similar resolution, sponsored by Dayton, Larson and senator Damani Bolden, which the student senate passed at last week’s meeting.

Senate confirms John Kerry as the next Secretary of State BY DONNA CASSATA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — The Senate overwhelmingly confirmed President Barack Obama’s choice of five-term Sen. John Kerry to be secretary of state, with Republicans and Democrats praising him as the ideal successor to Hillary Rodham Clinton. The vote Tuesday was 94-3. One senator — Kerry — voted present and accepted congratulations from colleagues on the Senate floor. The roll call came just hours after the Senate Foreign Relations Committee unanimously approved the man who has led the panel for the past four years. No date has been set for Kerry’s swearing-in, though a welcoming ceremony is planned at the State Department on Monday. Obama tapped Kerry, 69, the son of a diplomat, decorated Vietnam veteran and 2004 Democratic presidential candidate, to succeed Clinton, who is stepping down after four years. The Massachusetts Democrat, who had pined for the job but was passed over in 2009, has served as Obama’s unofficial envoy, smoothing fractious ties with Afghanistan and Pakistan. “Sen. Kerry will need no introduction to the world’s political and military leaders and will begin Day One fully conversant not only with the intricacies of U.S. foreign policy, but able to act on a multitude of international stages,” said Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., who will succeed Kerry as committee chairman. Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, the panel’s top Republican, called Kerry “a realist” who will deal with unrest in Egypt, civil war in Syria, the threat of al-Qaida-linked groups in Africa and Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons. Kerry, a forceful proponent of climate change legislation, also will have a say in whether the United States moves ahead on the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada, a divisive issue that has roiled environmentalists. Obama had nominated Kerry after Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, removed her name from consideration following criticism from Republicans over her initial comments about the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Voting against Kerry were three Republicans — Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma and John Cornyn and Ted Cruz of Texas. Absent from the vote were Sens. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and John Hoeven,

R-N.D. “Sen. Kerry has a long history of liberal positions that are not consistent with a majority of Texans,” Cornyn said in a statement. The senator is up for reelection next year and could face a tea party challenge. Kerry’s smooth path to the nation’s top diplomatic job stands in stark contrast to the harsher treatment for Obama’s other national security nominees — Chuck Hagel to be defense secretary and John Brennan to be CIA director. Hagel, the former two-term Republican senator from Nebraska, faces strong opposition from some of his onetime GOP colleagues who question his support for reductions in the nuclear arsenal and cuts in defense spending. Lawmakers also have questioned whether he is sufficiently supportive of Israel and strongly opposed to any outreach to Iran. Democrats have rallied for Hagel, and he has the announced support of at least a dozen members in advance of his confirmation hearing on Thursday. Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi will support Hagel, a spokesman said Tuesday, making him the first Republican to signal he will vote for the nomination. Six Republicans have said they would vote against him, with some opposing Obama’s choice even before the president’s announcement. Brennan faces questions from the GOP about White House leaks of classified information and from Democrats about the administration’s use of drones. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., threatened to block the nomination of both men until he gets more answers from the Obama administration about the assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. Graham, who earlier this month signaled he would delay Brennan’s pick, said in an interview Monday night with Fox News’ “On the Record” the he would “absolutely” block Hagel unless Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testifies about the attack in Benghazi, Libya. Clinton testified for more than five hours last Wednesday before the House and Senate, but that wasn’t sufficient for Graham. “Hillary Clinton got away with murder, in my view,” he said. “She said they had a clear-eyed view of the threats. How could you have a clear-eyed of the threats in Benghazi when you didn’t know about the ambassador’s cable coming back from Libya?”

Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., emerges after a unanimous vote by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee approving him to become America’s next top diplomat, replacing Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, on Capitol Hill in Washington on Tuesday. Kerry, who has served on the Foreign Relations panel for 28 years and led the committee for the past four, was swiftly confirmed by the Senate later Tuesday. Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich., told reporters Tuesday that a hearing with Panetta on Libya is planned though the date is uncertain. Graham welcomed that news and said he would not thwart a committee vote on the nomination. “Happy as a clam. News to me,” said Graham, who met with Hagel for 20 minutes on Tuesday. Pentagon spokesman George Little said Panetta had not responded yet to the request but that the department has been forthcoming with information. He insisted that the Hagel confirmation process move as quickly as possible. Two former chairmen of the committee — Democrat Sam Nunn of Georgia and Republican John Warner of Virginia — plan to introduce Hagel, according to officials close to the confirmation process. They spoke on condition of ano-

make it easier. “(The job of the Veteran Student Support Services unit) is to assist student veterans with their transition from leaving the military and coming here to become students,” Osborne said. “We do have some students who are still affiliated with the National Guard or Army Reserve, so from

nymity because the committee has not formally made an announcement. As a White House emissary, Kerry has tamped down diplomatic fi res for Obama. He also has stepped ahead of the administration on a handful of crises. He joined Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., as an early proponent of a more aggressive policy toward Libya, pushing for using military forces to impose a “no-fly zone” over Libya as Moammar Gadhafi’s forces killed rebels and other citizens. He was one of the early voices calling for Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to step down as revolution roiled the nation two years ago. During his tenure, Kerry has pushed for reducing the number of nuclear weapons, shepherding a U.S.-Russia treaty through the Senate in December 2010, and has cast climate change as a national security threat, joining

time to time, they may get called up halfway through a semester to go deploy somewhere.” Because of this affi liation, many veterans are older and do not live in University housing; often times these students must commute to class. Osborne said the lounge will offer a place for those students

forces with Republicans on legislation that faced too many obstacles to win congressional passage. He has led delegations to Syria and met a few times with President Bashar Assad, now a pariah in U.S. eyes after months of civil war and bloodshed as the government looks to put down a people’s rebellion. Figuring out an end-game for the Middle East country would demand all of Kerry’s skills. The selection of Kerry closes a political circle with Obama. In 2004, it was White House hopeful Kerry who asked a largely unknown Illinois state senator to deliver the keynote address at the Democratic convention in Boston, handing the national stage to Obama. Kerry lost that election to President George W. Bush. Four years later, Obama was the White House hopeful who succeeded where Kerry had failed.

to relax on campus in between classes. “It gives them a space that’s always there for them to study (or) to meet and interact with other veterans,” he said. The creation of the lounge was a step in the right direction, Romano said, but it is only the beginning.

“I really cannot wait to see where we’re going next,” Romano said. “And I know, this being the University of Illinois, that we’ll be going to great lengths to serve our veteran students. It’s the right thing to do.”

Diversity encompasses much more than just skin color


Editorial Allowing female service members in combat improves military, equal rights


hen the Department of Defense a nnounced lifti ng the ba n on fema le service members i n combat roles last week, supporters of women’s rights rightfully celebrated the defeat of one of the last bastions of open gender discrimi nation i n this country. L ike the abolition of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy i n 2011, the i nclusion of women i n combat roles is more tha n just a civil rights victory: It’s the right thi ng to do to make our mi litar y better. W hi le historic, the a nnouncement of outgo i ng Defense Secretary L eon Pa netta simply recognized the honorable service of the approximately 28 0,0 0 0 women who have been deployed i n Iraq a nd A fgha nista n, 14 6 of whom were ki lled. Despite the fact that women were ba nned from frontli ne combat roles, the rea lity is that women have been effectively i nvolved i n combat for years i n both Iraq a nd A fgha nista n. They are vulnerable to the same da nger, experience the same livi ng conditions a nd go unshowered for just as long as their ma le counter parts. Those opposed to this measure poi nt to the practica l cha llenges of frontli ne combat. Jerr y Boyki n, a retired genera l who served a nd comma nded the U. S. A rmy Delta Force, wrote i n a press release that the problem has nothi ng to do with “courage or capabilities,” but with hygiene. Boyki n, now the executive president of the Family Research Council, wrote that soldiers’ “livi ng conditions are prima l i n ma ny situations with no privacy for persona l hygiene or norma l functions,” later addi ng that comma nders wi ll be burdened with providi ng “some separation of the genders” while a lso protecti ng the lives of their troops. We do not claim to critique Boyki n’s first-ha nd experience of specia l forces missions, but we do feel right i n criticizi ng a li ne of logic that argues womens’ hygiene issues are such a n i nsurmountable cha llenge to the mi litar y that it is better off without them. That is patently, demonstrably ridiculous. Women a lready serve i n combat situations a nd have proven the ability to function under conditions where privacy doesn’t exist. The pressure should still be on the mi litar y to work more forcefully i n the treatment of women i n the military. L ast week’s victo ry doesn’t help the rough ly 5 0 percent of fema le service members who reported bei ng sexua lly harassed i n Iraq a nd A fgha nista n, accordi ng to research by the Depar tment of Vetera ns A ffairs. The preva lence of sexua l assault a nd rape i n the mi litar y is dishonorable, but it is a n issue that ca n’t be solved by a simple pub lic a nnouncement or policy cha nge. Women have been fighti ng for equa l rights i n this countr y for over a century, a nd i n most aspects of our society they are given a fair cha nce to pursue their careers. But for that to happen, culture had to cha nge: what a woma n could do, could thi nk, could say, could wear — these issues have taken generations to shift, a nd sti ll are shifti ng. The mi litar y wi ll not cha nge overnight, a nd ma ny will not easily lose the perception that bei ng a ma n is a fundamenta l component to bei ng a combat soldier. W hi le i ndividua ls such as Boyki n may still object, they’ve a lready lost; they ca n only sit back a nd watch the mi litar y cha nge for the better. We hope they watch closely.

TA’LES LOVE Opinions columnist


being held back because of their perceived physical and emotional inferiority. But let me remind you, that’s an inferiority compared with the standards of men. This is an issue because our country is too afraid to loosen the boundaries of the strongest heteronormative institution we have left. Because if we allow women to serve in combat, we can no longer devote our military successes and advances entirely to men. There was no how-to guide for African-American and LGBT soldiers to assimilate into the military culture, and women will manage just the same, as they have in the Middle East. If women make the conscious and voluntary decision to join military ranks, let alone a combat position, why do we doubt their efficacy? It should be up to women to assimilate themselves among current military procedure, to accommodate their personal and hygienic practices to the war zone and to parallel themselves to the physical strength of men. If the military wants to make these transitions effective, the military will intervene and adjust. But a need for gender-separate policies is primitive. The goal is neither gender unification nor gender differentiation — it’s gender ambiguity. In the micro-perspective, this is certainly a military issue. But in terms of the macro — in society, generational values and being on the right side of history — this is certainly an equality issue. With the phrase “duty to serve” floating around, why must we restrict that duty to only certain Americans. The path to the decision may have been flawed, but letting women serve in direct combat, that is not in any way a flawed decision. Equality is never flawed.

y entire life I’ve been fortunate to communicate and interact with different types of people. Not only were they different from me in the sense of race but also in terms of religion and socioeconomic backgrounds. They also had differences of opinions, thoughts and feelings on a wide variety of subjects. There have also been times when I was the only African-American in my class and school. Even in those situations I have been able to experience diversity, and it has allowed me to learn from others different from me. It has also taught me that sometimes those who appear different from you are relatively similar. Therefore, we should not judge and interpret diversity strictly on the terms of race because diversity has multiple meanings. Diversity is defined as the point of difference. Often when we hear someone speak of diversity, it tends to mainly focus on the combination of many different racial groups in one environment. While it is one of the many elements of diversity, race is among the most basic elements of the definition. It’s easy to stick a group of people of different races in a room and yell diversity — this University has become comfortable with this notion, but it’s time we move forward from this perception. True enough; the University has done a good job in the inclusion and recruitment of minority students. According to the University’s admissions website, the University of Illinois is the most diverse institution in the Big Ten. A report released earlier this month concludes that more than half of the student body is Caucasian, while more than 20 percent of the population is composed of students from underrepresented backgrounds. Roughly 20 percent is is international students. Of the minority population, Hispanic students account for 7 percent of the population while African-Americans make up 5 percent. At a university where there are over 40,000 students, those numbers seem relatively low, but when walking around campus you can easily see that the University is a melting pot. However, we should strive to be diverse in all aspects, not just skin color. It is important to increase and define diversity in areas such as opinions, thoughts, gender and experiences because those are the elements that make us who we are. While race may be a characteristic of a person, it does not define his or her character. President Obama elaborated on the many different forms on diversity in his inaugural address last week. He reaffirmed the idea that all of us are created equal, but he went beyond the depths of skin color. He mentioned diversity and inclusion in terms of gender when speaking on equal pay. He said, “Our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts.” He continued with the importance of accepting and including those who have different sexual orientations by saying, “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.” He went on to mention that while we may not agree on everything it is important for us to come together to act and make a difference. That is the true meaning of diversity. It is the importance of recognizing and respecting one another’s differences but focusing on the similarities to reach a common goal. While there are several programs on campus hoping to achieve this aim, it seems often they fall short. Even with these programs, those a part of like groups still tend to cling to one another. So while the campus may be diverse, the interaction may not be. Resources like the cultural houses provide wonderful resources to all students, and while their aim is to be inclusive, sometimes they have the tendency to be exclusive, even toward members within that particular culture represented by that house. Just because you throw a bunch of different people together in one area does not make that area diverse. For this reason it is important that we explore this concept beyond the basic level to develop an advanced understanding.

Authority does not always know best BRIAN SIEGEL Opinions columnist


fter a little over a semester of fighting the deviously omniscient scope of our nanny government, I still have one major dilemma. With a firm libertarian philosophy that puts its trust in people over the government, will people fall victim to their social contract and submit to authority? The reason I started writing this column was to purpose alternative self-sufficient answers to federal problems. We have extended our military reach too far, we have sacrificed our liberty for safety in the form of warrantless Internet snooping, and we have run ourselves into the ground fiscally. We have tried to solve our problems with government intervention, and look where that has gotten us. I say we usher in an era of economic freedom, social freedom and civil freedom. I don’t appreciate that my tax money is wasted on victimless crimes, like the War on Drugs in Mexico. I certainly don’t like mixing religion with politics, like the Defense of Marriage Act (thank God politicians are starting to come to their senses on that). If you want to marry your dog, be my guest. It doesn’t affect me. And I hate that some people in this

country work and that money is not theirs to keep. But the cognitive exercise of fighting the government’s incompetence by writing columns probably does not make any difference. That is because our social contract to authority is too strong. That conclusion leads me to perhaps my greatest worry. I worry that groupthink and mass democracy are failing us all. I am not arguing for anarchism but for a greater emphasis on individual thinking, because without them the building blocks of morality begin to crumble. You only have control of yourself, and you have the ultimate responsibility for your actions, part of a group or not. We all like to think we are moral people and that the majority of us would stand up and not back down in a highly immoral situation. What if I were to tell you that is not the case? Our moral high ground that we stand on is just an illusion. It sounds like a claim that would seem impossible to prove, but Stanley Milgram, the famed Yale social psychologist whose research influenced the six degrees of separation concept, has already been there, done that and gotten the T-shirt when it comes to social contract experiments. In his famed experiment, a randomly selected participant was told he or she was testing if pain helped with memory, and he was essentially told to electrocute a person in another room each time

that person got an answer to some question wrong. The person in the other room wasn’t actually electrocuted. Staged cries for help and the mention of a heart condition would come from the other room as the random participant incrementally increased the dosage of electricity to the actor. You would assume most people would stop, but when pressured by an authority figure, 65 percent of them exceeded a lethal dosage of electric shocks. The experiment proved that we are willing to set aside our moral compass when an authority figure tells us to do so. These participants were under no obligation to continue the experiment, but they did so only because an authoritative figure told them to do so. That kind of thinking is how something like the Holocaust happens, and not enough people rally together or say enough is enough. People listen to authority, period. It is time to stop assuming that authority knows best. But when it comes down to it, it’s a cognitive choice. Choosing to obey authority is up to you and only you. Make choices based on a responsibility to yourself, and don’t harm someone else when you make those decisions. You have that power. You have the ability to critically think for yourself. So what will you do when that power is in your hands?

Women combat ban ignores equality ADAM HUSKA Opinions columnist


quality is and always will be one big social experiment. Former Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin and notable opponent of lifting the ban on women serving in direct combat, speaks some truth in his words regarding the issue. Transplanting women into an institution that has been male-dominated for its entire existence is certainly an experiment. Testing the emotional, psychological and physical boundaries of women is certainly an experiment. The only thing that didn’t need to be an experiment was being on the right side of history — that outcome could be determined. However, Boykin fails to recognize that this isn’t a women’s equality or women’s welfare issue, let alone a military integration issue. Women have been actively serving in war, and even direct combat, for years — both in Iraq and in Afghanistan. The problem with this ban is recognition. The ban bypasses the honor and respect women serving in the military deserve, and instead, allows them to be involved only through loopholes and without proper acknowledgement. It’s about integrating our country’s and government’s institutions and facing the covert sexism embedded in the military’s organization. The oppositions’ and Boykin’s arguments are both outdated and frankly derogatory. He wonders: How can soldiers possibly balance imminent danger and newly introduced sexual tension with the addition of women? How can women possibly adapt to “abysmal” living and hygiene conditions? How can women survive in “prolonged operations” that are physically tolling?

I look back on these questions and am honestly baffled. There is no reason to assume that it is the addition of women that will produce sexual tension. It’s degrading to assume women are inept to adaptation and naive to think they can’t physically compete at the same level as men. Lifting the ban on women serving in combat is not a “burden” as Boykin repeatedly suggests. The fact that developing sex-segregated military accommodations is being considered a burden just reflects that the military was never ready for, let alone considering, a military with women. To imply that women aren’t capable of going to the bathroom in holes and taking care of their “feminine problems” without the inclusion and assistance of supporting procedures is barbaric. The same implication that excluding women from combat is for the welfare of the military suggests that military concerns trump humanitarian and egalitarian ones. Until 1948, the military disregarded the help of African-Americans. Until 2011, the military disregarded the help of LGBT. And until a few days ago, the military disregarded the help of women in combat. These changes are monumental and progressive, but their histories certainly are not. Equality requires time and patience, and accepting women as an official part of the front lines won’t occur overnight. However, it’s frustrating when it takes 20 years to repeal a clearly sexist policy despite our active involvement in war and our nation’s prevalent push for civil rights. I can appreciate the triumph and joy in this advance for women, but I cannot appreciate the history that ignored them. Too often the process of achieving equality is overshadowed by the accomplishment of equality. If the argument is anything as it comes off to be, women are only

Adoptees can learn birth parents’ names after 21 BY JULIA MARBACH STAFF WRITER

Jessie Johnson, junior in LAS, has gone her whole life wondering who her birth parents are. “I want to know where I came from. I also want to know what was going on in their lives when they decided to give me up and if I have any more siblings,” she said. For Johnson and other adoptees in a closed adoption, a November 2011 change in the Illinois Adoption Act made answering these questions a possibility. Now nearing 21, some adoptees can decide whether to request information from their past. The law allows adopted or surrendered persons age 21 and older to request a noncertified copy of their original Illinois birth certificate. According to the Illinois Department of Public Health, the copy typically includes the names, ages and birth places of the birth parents. Before the 2011 change, individuals involved in a closed adoption did not have access to their original birth certificate; instead, their birth certificate would have the names of their adoptive parents, said Dara Purvis, visiting assistant professor of law. A total of 8,145 people have received a copy of their original birth certificate since the change, said state Rep. Sara Feigenholtz, D-12, a proponent for opening adoption records.

Kobak’s own skate name is Maraud Lebowski, inspired by one of her favorite films. “You can choose to go by your real name, or you can choose a name that empowers you while you skate,” Kobak said.

divers are recommended to take a refresher course if they do not dive every six months or so. “We usually go up to a quarry — Haigh Quarry in Kankakee — and we do four open-water training dives,” Knop said. “It’s still ... what we already trained you at the pool to do. You just show us in an open water environment that you can do the skills.” There are several other, more advanced scuba certifications that a diver can receive if he or she chooses to continue in the skill of scuba diving. “After people get their basic

Super Bowl ad teasers gain popularity THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Super Bowl advertisers are learning the art of the tease. Supermodel Kate Upton appears in an online MercedesBenz video in a low-cut top. An unknown man wakes up with his face covered in smeared lipstick and his hands bound in furry handcuffs in a Gildan Activewear clip. And “30 Rock” star Tracy Morgan seemingly curses in a spot for Kraft’s Mio flavored drops. Super Bowl advertisers no longer are keeping spots a secret until game day. They’re releasing online snippets of their ads or longer video trailers that allude to the action in the televised spot. It’s an effort to squeeze more publicity out of advertising’s biggest stage by creating pregame buzz. Advertisers are shelling out $4 million to get their 30-second spots in front of the 111 million viewers expected to tune into the game. But they’re looking for ways to reach even more people: About half of the more than 30 Super Bowl advertisers are expected to have teaser ads this year, up from 10 last year, according to Hulu, which

aggregates Super Bowl ads on its AdZone website. There’s an art to teasers. Each spot, which can run from a few seconds to over a minute long, is intended to drive up hype by giving viewers clues about gameday ads. But the key is to not give too much away. So marketers must walk a fine line between revealing too much or too little about their Super Bowl ads. Taco Bell CEO Greg Creed said introducing a teaser helps people feel as if they’re “in the know” about the company’s Super Bowl ad before it airs. The company’s teaser shows an elderly man, who is also the star of its game day ad, doing wheelies on a scooter on a football field. “On game day, we want people to say, ‘Shh, shh, shh. Here comes the ad,’” he says. Some companies have been successful using Super Bowl teasers in the past. Last year, Volkswagen’s teaser that showed dogs barking “The Imperial March” from the Star Wars movie was a hit. In fact, it was almost as popular as the game day ad, which had a Star Wars-themed twist ending. Both the teaser and the ad each received about 16 million views on YouTube.

But other spots fall flat, or worse, are all but forgotten once the mystery is revealed during the Big Game. For instance, Bridgestone put out several teasers for its Super Bowl ad last year. But the game day ad itself did not show up on the USA TODAY Ad Meter, which ranks the popularity of ads. To be sure, no matter how carefully marketers try to control pregame buzz, sometimes it gets away from them. Volkswagen, following its past success with “The Imperial March,” teaser, is facing some criticism this year. On Monday, it released its Super Bowl ad showing a Minnesotan office worker who adopts a Jamaican accent because he’s so happy with his car. Some online columnists called it culturally insensitive because it shows a white man adopting an accent associated with black Jamaicans. Volkswagen said the accent is intended to convey a “relaxed cheerful demeanor.” “Even though it’s not a good ad, they managed to get as much attention this year as they did last year before the game,” says an ad critic. “It’s amazing to use America as their test kitchen, which they did.”

many sports, rough physical contact is reprimanded with a penalty. But for the women in the Twin City Derby Girls roller derby league, they “don’t apologize for hitting.” Roller derby is a full-contact skating sport that includes elbowing, body checks and fights. It differs from other sports in its physicality as well as the “mental fitness” participants achieve. “As women, we learn to take up as little space as possible, but this sport teaches you that you are valuable and that you deserve to take up the space you occupy,” said Dr. Kathryn Clancy, professor of anthropology at the University and participant in the Twin City Travelers team. Clancy explained that roller derby builds women’s confidence by allowing them to be aggressive and teaching them that they have (non-reproductive) value as physical beings. “You can be competitive and aggressive, and instead of that being seen as ‘unfeminine,’ it is applauded,” she added. Kate Kobak, a Savoy resident and mother of two, will begin her second derby season this year. As she said of the intimidating sport, “If you are not there mentally, your physical performance will suffer. There is a partnership between thought and physicality.” As for the physical aspect, Deb Sosnowski, member of the Twin City Travelers team since September 2011, praises the assortment of skills roller derby forces participants to incorporate into their workouts. “With more traditional sports, there is less to learn,” she said. “We all already know how to run and jump, but skating and the skills it requires are a whole other entity.” Clancy said roller derby has the potential to benefit women in whichever way they choose, depending on what type of results they wish to see. “Your muscle mass will increase quite a bit. We all get bigger butts and thighs because those are the muscles we use when we skate and hit,” Clancy said. “While people have lost weight, roller derby usually leads to a gain of muscle mass.” For roller derby athletes to lose weight while participating in the sport, Clancy said the athlete must be particularly cautious of their caloric intake, as with other sports of this caliber. “You’re going to come home from practice hungry, because of how hard you will have worked out. Weight loss can be achieved if you go in with the intention of weight loss and adhere to a diet plan,” she said. Clancy is also a part of the league’s fitness committee, a private forum that aims to “support the fitness of our league-mates.” Here, derby skaters can fi nd simple supplemental workouts to complement

Campus Rec offering scuba-diving clinics BY REEMA ABI-AKAR STAFF WRITER

Campus Recreation is offering scuba diving clinics at the ARC for anyone looking to gain new skills in underwater exploration, brush up on forgotten aquatic talents or put their swimming expertise to practical use. There are three instructional sessions this semester, Feb. 11-20, March 4-13 and April 8-17, which take place each Monday and Wednesday from 6-8 p.m. The clinics follow the PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) sys-

tem, and they are open to anyone, not only University students. “In the past, it used to take 16 weeks to get somebody certified,” said Rami Dass, PADI assistant instructor. “But over time, PADI improved and the teaching methods improved.” The $245 cost for members ($270 for nonmembers) covers rental equipment, a dive book and use of the ARC’s pool and instructional facilities. Each session can accommodate about 10 students. “We’re shifting to a new system that’s based on PADI e-Learning,” Dass said.

“So the classroom (session) is going to be all done via the Internet, where students will do all the coursework ... Once they go over all that, then we just go through working with them in the pool session, where we help them master the skills, and they also get familiar with the equipment and get more hands-on experience.” Before taking the course, students must demonstrate some proficiency with swimming and treading water. Participants should be capable of swimming 200-300 yards, floating in deep water for

10 minutes and using a snorkel. Brad Knop, course director at the Midwest Scuba Center in Champaign and the ARC, has been teaching scuba classes for 32 years. He and Dass cover the basic science of scuba diving and several “what if” situations. Anna Sherman, sophomore in LAS, took the class with Knop and Dass last school year. She said that her mom and her mom’s friends would travel around the world to dive, and she wanted to be able to join them. “You learn how to breathe underwater,

you learn how to not pop your lungs open when you’re surfacing, you learn how to clear your mask in case it gets full of water, you learn how to continue breathing underwater in case your regulator falls out or gets kicked off,” she said. The clinic also teaches the treatment of aquatic life, use of a compass, sticking with the buddy system and working with the gear and equipment. “The course that’s in the ARC only covers confi ned water,” Dass said.

Scott Barrera

The senior scored seven points, including three goals, to lead Illinois hockey to a sweep of SIUE. BY STEPHEN BOURBON STAFF WRITER

he cool rush of air flowed through Scott Barrera’s open cage. Handling the puck in the offensive zone, Barrera weighed his options. On the left faceoff circle, Barrera was one-on-one with a defender while linemate John Olen posted up in front of the net. The Southern Illinois (Edwardsville) defenseman took an ill-advised step toward Barrera, leaving him vulnerable. Sliding the puck with the backhand, Barrera slipped the puck between the defender’s legs, eliciting a chorus of “ooohs” from the Big Pond crowd. Barrera continued the motion and dished off to Olen,

who went top shelf to beat the goaltender and break a 2-2 tie. The Illini would never look back, taking a 6-3 win over SIUE — their fifth consecutive victory on the year. It was Barrera and Olen who brought the firepower on the weekend, with Barrera accounting for seven points to Olen’s six. That one point also earned Barrera the top spot in the team’s point leaders, 40 to 39 over Olen. Last weekend was his best at Illinois, and this season is the best of Barrera’s career. The explanation is pretty simple.

Honorable mentions Alina Weinstein (women’s gymnastics) — The senior recorded season-high all-

around scores on the day, leading the team to the Victory Plank over Michigan State.

D.J. Richardson (men’s basketball) — The

senior set a career high with 30 points, including six 3-pointers, last week in a blowout win at Nebraska.

While hockey doesn’t have rampant concussion complications, the game is still extremely physical. Hits and collisions on the ice have produced varying degrees of shoulder injuries for the players. The Illinois hockey team has been hit hard with such injuries as of late. The most severe incident was former player and assistant coach Chris Peter. While playing as a defenseman during the 2011-12 season, Peter sustained a torn subscapularis tendon, a torn rotator cuff and a torn supraspinatus tendon. Peter, who is still looking to play in recreational leagues, can’t play at all for 12 months. “(My surgeon) said it was the worst shoulder he’d ever seen in someone my age before,” Peter said. “I knew something was really bad with it, but it was my senior year and I just toughed it out.” Peter, an assistant coach on Nick Fabbrini’s staff last semester, said he didn’t miss any games due to the injury and had massage therapy done to keep the pain at a manageable level so he could continue to play. He initially injured the shoulder while in juniors, when his arm was pinned against the boards at an awkward angle. The diagnosis: a partially torn muscle. Peter said his shoulder gradually got worse as his career progressed, and he fi nally decided to go under the knife. Fabbrini had a similar situation with his shoulder while

Strange defense yields another loss at home BY THOMAS BRUCH STAFF WRITER

Given the deficiencies that have cropped up in the past month on the offensive side of the court, the Illinois men’s basketball team did not perform poorly on that side of the ball against then-No. 2 Michigan and even generated shot attempts that Illinois head coach John Groce praised. But defense, a largely absent trait of this season’s Illinois team, was a much different

story. Michigan cruised to 74 points on 52.5 percent shooting from the field, which aligns the Wolverines with their season averages but reflects poorly on an Illinois defense playing in front of a sold-out home crowd Sunday. One of the more curious situations that defense found itself in was a one-on-one showdown of Illinois center Nnanna Egwu guarding the only Big Ten player to average more than 17 points and seven assists since

Magic Johnson — Michigan point guard Trey Burke. This mismatch was created from Illinois defenders consistently switching to guard another Michigan player after being screened. Those switches left Egwu all on his own to square off against Burke. Shockingly enough, Egwu did a superb job of not letting the speedy Burke drive past him, forcing the point guard to jack up a long, contested jumper.

When asked after the game about this predicament, Egwu revealed that switching to guard Burke was by design. “(I) just tried to stay in front of him,” Egwu said. “Try and force him to take tough twos, tough shots. “That was the gameplan.” Groce agreed that the perpetual switching on defense did not bother him at all. “I thought it was good,” Groce


“I didn’t think we were physical enough on some mismatch blockout situations where guards were matched up on bigs and they had to keep them off the glass.” JOHN GROCE, Illini basketball head coach

Corkball’s nostalgic tradition lives on JACK CASSIDY Sports columnist


you asked 10-year-old me to list his favorite things about summer vacation, here’s what he would put down: staying up late, sleeping in, Chicago Cubs baseball and ... corkball. I’m hoping that most readers are nodding their heads right now, but I fear they are not. The good ol’ days, when baseball, not smartphones, reigned supreme are over and done with. People don’t play corkball anymore. So, let me first explain for those who do not know the game. Corkball is baseball, only adjusted to the resources you have available. All you need is a bat, a ball, a playing field and a backstop. No gloves, no base paths, no catchers. How far you hit the ball determines how far the “runner” advances. For purposes of clarity, imagine a baseball field. If you hit the ball past the pitcher in the air, that’s a single. Past the infield: double. Onto the warning track: triple. And over the fence: home run. Anything that doesn’t get past the pitcher is an out. Now keep that same logic, but remove it from the traditional baseball diamond and put it in a school parking lot. Or an open field. Or a driveway. The standard corkball bat is the length of a normal baseball bat but only about 1 ½ inches in diameter at its widest point. It resembles a broomstick. There is technically a standard “corkball,” which is literally a miniature baseball, but I’ve never seen it used. Tennis balls are usually the weapon of choice. Like a game of pickup basketball, ground rules are established before the game, and the single-double-triple-home run lines are established, whether that be “the oak tree on the right,” “the sidewalk across the street” or “the blue car parked behind the pitcher.” Any available landmarks can be used. Strike zone rules are also established. Some games use normal three-strikes-and-you’reout rules. Some games don’t bother with strikes and balls at all and rather operate on home run derby rules — wait for your pitch, but when you swing, it’s either a hit or an out. And in all rules, foul balls are punished in some way. My corkball story goes like this: The sport was a family affair. Taught to us by a corkball veteran — my dad — most games were 1-on-1 with me and my brother in our driveway with a standard corkball bat and a tennis ball. The pitcher stood near the street and pitched toward the garage, which had a strike zone duct taped onto it. Luckily, our neighbors across the street encouraged the game, even cutting down some tree branches outside their front windows so they could watch our games more clearly (seriously), and we were allowed to hit toward their house. A hit that flew past the pitcher and into the street or into the neighbor’s front yard was a single. Onto their roof or past the house on either side was a double. Off the side of the house was a triple. And directly over their roof and into their backyard was a home run. To their good karma, no windows were broken. Summer was filled with corkball in the driveway, and the garage has the dents to prove it. Sometimes the afternoons were nothing but a seven-game series of nineinning games, and great baseball moments came to define many days, whether it was a diving catch on a would-be single, a walkoff home run or a no-hitter. Many other days ended with

Thomas’ 25 points power Buckeyes in win vs. Badgers Ohio State moves into 3rd place in Big Ten BY RUSTY MILLER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Deshaun Thomas scored 25 points, including 10 during a gamebreaking 15-0 second-half run, to lead No. 11 Ohio State past Wisconsin 58-49 on Tuesday night. The leading scorer in the Big Ten, Thomas took over the game as both teams tried to gain leverage in a typically physical matchup between them. The victory moved Ohio State (16-4, 6-2 Big Ten) into third place in the Big Ten and dropped Wisconsin (14-7, 5-3) two games off the pace set by co-leaders Indiana and Michigan (6-1). Traevon Jackson, the son of Buckeyes great Jimmy Jackson, led the Badgers with 12 points in the arena where his dad’s jersey hangs from the rafters. Jared Berggren added 11 points for Wisconsin. Aaron Craft had 13 points and six assists for the Buckeyes. Both teams were shooting

Thomas’ fake and 10-foot jumper over Ryan Evans tied it at 41, with Thomas then giving the Buckeyes the lead on a drive through the lane and finger roll after Evans had charged into Craft at the other end. It didn’t stop there, as the

Buckeyes’ defense stepped up the pressure to force bad shots while the offense started clicking. During the 15-0 run that went from the 13:01 mark to under 6 minutes left, the Badgers were 0 for 7 from the field with three turnovers as everything went Ohio State’s way. Thomas hit another basket, this time on a drive, before

LaQuinton Ross popped in a 3 from the left wing. Thomas then took a pass from Shannon Scott on the fast break and scissored in for a layup. While Wisconsin continued to misfire at the other end, Thomas then jousted with Evans, forcing him to step back and then hit a soft, fall-away 16-footer to push the lead to 52-41 and bringing the crowd to its feet.

They took 16 shots behind the arc, only 10 inside it. They picked up 12 points in that one stat, making 6 of 16 3-pointers to Ohio State’s 1 of 2.

HARTFORD, Conn. — Stefanie Dolson scored 20 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead No. 3 Connecticut over Villanova 76-43 on Tuesday night. Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis added 19 points for the Huskies (191, 6-1 Big East), hitting five of her six 3-pointers. Freshman Breanna Stewart chipped in 14 points and six boards. Jesse Carey had nine points, all on 3-pointers, to lead Villanova (16-4, 5-2), which was picked to finish 10th in the Big East, but lost for just the fourth time this season. The Wildcats, who rely on the 3-point shot for 46 percent of their field goal attempts, missed their first nine from behind the arc, allowing UConn to run away with the game in the first half. Villanova finished 7-of-28 from long distance.

Ben Brust finally ended the 7:11 drought with a 3 from the top of the circle. After Wisconsin narrowed the gap to five points on a 3 by Berggren, Scott stole the ball and went the length of the court for a three-point play. The Badgers never got closer than six points again. The Badgers led 26-24 at halftime, playing at a pace that

A 10-0 run by UConn in the first half stretched the lead to 27-10, from which Villanova could not recover. Connecticut led 17-10 before Villanova went ice cold. The Wildcats scored just seven more points in the half. UConn used a 10-0 run to stretch the lead to 27-10, led by Mosqueda-Lewis, who hit all four of her 3-point attempts in the half. Her steal and 3-point jumper gave the Huskies their first 20-point lead at 34-14. And was 44-14 after freshman guard Moriah Jefferson made a jumper. Villanova turned up its defensive game, and held UConn score-

less for the last 4:31 of the first half and the first 3:07 of the second. But it was still 44-17 at the half and 47-21 when MosquedaLewis broke the drought with a put-back. Connecticut played its reserves for long stretches in the second half and occasionally had all three of its freshmen on the floor at the same time. UConn held the Wildcats to 28 percent shooting from the floor. The Huskies, meanwhile shot 50 percent. They went 6-of-11 from

3-point range for the half and 9-of-21 for the game. The Huskies also dominated on the boards, outrebounding Villanova 48-28. Villanova has had more success against UConn than most. Harry Perretta has beaten the Huskies 11 times in 47 games, but has now lost 10 in a row to Geno Auriemma. The Wildcats, who came into the game tied with the Huskies for second place in the conferece, have not scored 50 in their last eight meetings.

CASSIDY FROM PAGE 1B punches and fights after a high and inside slider that came a little too close to the head. After a number of years, my brother and I were joined by our two other brothers, who had finally grown old enough to play, and the games became more intense.

BASKETBALL FROM PAGE 1B said. “I thought our guys did a good job there. (Rebounding) was my big concern with doing it. That worked out OK. I thought our bigs did a really good job of guarding Burke.” Burke ended the night with 19 points, but those didn’t come easy. The point guard shot 7-for19 from the field, which was far below his average field goal percentage of 50.4 percent, and turned the ball over three times — a decent number for some point guards but obscenely high for Burke, whose assist to turnover ratio is second in the country at 3.91 per game. Despite the effectiveness of Egwu’s defense, the flaw in switching on defense that much is that a smaller defender ends up guarding a big man. In this case, D.J. Richardson or Tracy Abrams often found themselves being posted up by Michigan’s rugged center Mitch McGary, who pulled down four crucial offensive rebounds that extended Michigan possessions when Illinois needed a stop. “I didn’t think we were physical enough on some mismatch blockout situations where guards were matched up on bigs and they

Now it was two-on-two. There were outfielders robbing what in years past would be a clutch double. You had to rely on your teammate for big hits and quality pitching. You played, you cheered, you chewed sunflower seeds and you drank Coke. The games embodied the baseball spirit more than any hardball I had ever played. Always the same teams,

always good competition, always in the hot summer air and always every bit of pride you owned on the line ... for eight solid years. No records or statistics. Just baseball. People often say they were born into the wrong time period, and they say it for any number of reasons — history buffs who would rather live through the colonial age than the Information Age, people

who dislike today’s electrodance music scene and would prefer the psychedelic blues rock of the ’60s, etc. I would say it because of baseball. I want a sandlot and 17 other friends to play ball with every afternoon. I want to field grounders, take batting practice and chase down fly balls. But there is just no way to get this baseball fix outside of

organized leagues, which end after high school and are often too serious for fun anyway. At any given time on campus, I can find a five-on-five game of basketball. I can even find soccer, tennis, volleyball or hockey games. I can never find a nine-onnine pickup game of baseball. Maybe 50 years ago, but now the sandlots are dead. But I still have corkball.


This Christmas, the best gift I received was a new corkball bat, replacing the one that sadly broke after more than a decade of service. If the new one lasts anywhere near as long as the first, I’ll be able to capture that baseball spirit well into my 30s. What a gift that is. Jack is a senior in LAS.

had to keep them off the glass,” Groce said. “I thought that happened to us a couple times. We’ve just got to be a little more physical there and do a better job on those.” The scenarios of Illinois post players guarding Burke, though puzzling, were not foreign to Michigan head coach John Beilein. Last year, Groce’s Ohio team upset the Wolverines in the second round of the NCAA tournament, and Beilein consulted the tape of that game to prepare for Groce’s team Sunday. “They were switching every ball screen,” Beilein said. “We anticipated that. We anticipated a lot of things they could do, even back to Ohio University when John (Groce) coached there. That took us a little time to adjust to that because Trey was shooting over a longer guy.” Had Illinois kept the game closer, Burke’s shooting struggles because of the switching defenders could have played a larger role in the game’s outcome. Illinois travels up to Ann Arbor, Mich., Feb. 24 for the rematch, and Groce will face a decision on continuing his unorthodox defense against Burke.

Illinois women’s basketball reaches 11th win of season A breakdown look at the reasons why the Illini are better on the road than at home BY MICHAEL WONSOVER STAFF WRITER

Seven games into the Big Ten season, Illinois is still searching for its first home conference win. Nonetheless, the Illini are currently tied for fifth in the standings. Despite losing all three conference games at home, Illinois is 4-0 on the road against Big Ten opponents for the first time since 2000-01 after squeezing by Minnesota 91-86 on Monday. Here are some answers as to why the Illini have thrived on the road while continuing to struggle at home:

Strength of schedule Illinois’ home Big Ten opponents this season — Purdue, Michigan State and Northwestern — have a combined record of 43-17. On the road, the Illini opponents — Ohio State, Northwestern, Nebraska and Minnesota — have a combined record of 48-33.

Close losses In addition to the more difficult home slate for Illinois, the team has also struggled to pull out close wins in Champaign. Illinois has lost by an average of three points per game in its three conference losses. On the road, the Illini have won by an average of 9 points per game. Despite the large winning margin, Illinois has won single-digit games at Ohio State and Minnesota. “We played really well against Purdue, we had chances, had a lead against Michigan State late, had a lead against Northwestern. Just gotta be able to finish it off,” Illinois head coach Matt Bollant said. “In all three of those games, we had leads in the last six minutes. Just gotta step up and make

BARRERA FROM PAGE 1B “It’s my last semester,” the senior Barrera said. “It’s coming down to 12 or 13 games left in my career. I want every shift to count.” The 24-year-old has certainly done that. After accruing 52 points his first two seasons in orange and blue, Barrera already has 40 this season. While not considered to be a premier goal scorer, Barrera’s calling card as a passer and a facilitator allows him to rack up points and allows his teammates to fill the net. “(Barrera) is more of a playmaker, a passer,” head coach Nick Fabbrini said. “He’s got a high hockey IQ.” Barrera draws from his experience in juniors and at Illinois to attest to his IQ on the ice, and his leadership earned him an assistant captain spot this season. A soft-spoken player, Barrera said he lets his play do the talking and won’t ask anyone to do anything that he isn’t willing to do. Especially on the gray line, with freshmen Olen and Kev-

plays like we have on the road and do that at home.”

Rebounding on the road One of the biggest indicators of an Illini win or loss this season has been rebounding. Illinois is 7-0 when it outrebounds its opponent. The Illini have yet to outrebound a Big Ten foe at home. In its first conference home game, Illinois was outrebounded 49-29 in a one-point overtime loss to then-No. 14 Purdue, which currently sits second in conference standings. Michigan State also abused Illinois on the boards, outrebounding the Illini 49-22. Despite grabbing around half the amount of rebounds as its opponents in the two games, they only lost by a combined five points. Illinois has outrebounded every opponent on the road with the exception of Northwestern. The Illini forced 34 turnovers against the Wildcats. Even with troubles at Assembly Hall, Illinois’ win against Minnesota was its 11th of the season, matching the Illini’s win total last season. It took Illinois 28 games to win its 11th game, compared with only 19 this season.

Coming home Although Monday’s win was a road game for his players, Bollant felt at home. The Winona, Minn., native, said his father, two brothers and sister were in attendance, as well as around 50-60 other family members and friends. “That was pretty special,” he said. “Great experience for the Bollant family, to come back home and get a win here in Minneapolis is special for me.”

Michael can be reached at and @m_dubb. in Chowaniec, Barrera is seen as a mentor. “No matter what is going on in the game, I try and stay calm,” Barrera said. “I try to set an example for some of the younger guys that you don’t always have to be yelling.” After joining the team in 2010, two years removed from the program’s second ACHA national championship in four years, Barrera stepped into a program in which winning the league’s top prize had become an expectation. Almost three years later, things haven’t gone quite according to plan. After missing out on the championship in Barrera’s first year, the Illini finished under .500 last season and made a first-round exit in the ACHA national tournament. Former head coach Chad Cassel, Barrera’s landlord of all things, left after the 2011-12 campaign, casting doubt if Barrera would ever win the championship he craved. In Barrera’s swan song as a player, the Illini have shown some of their old dominance, surging back into the top 10 and currently hold-

nois earlier this season, but the Badgers prefer to play low-scoring games. Bo Ryan’s squad hasn’t eclipsed the 50-point mark in three games, losing 49-47 to Michigan State, winning 45-44 over Minnesota and falling to Ohio State 58-49 last night.

Purdue boiling up Hoosiers outlast Spartans In a battle between two teams atop the Big Ten standings, Indiana outlasted the Spartans 75-70 after a Herculean effort from Victor Oladipo. The versatile swingman tallied 21 points, seven rebounds, six steals and three blocks.

Appling’s missing Not included in Oladipo’s stat line was his expected lockdown defense. This time his victim was Keith Appling. Michigan State’s leading scorer played only 19 minutes and scored three points. Michigan State lost by just five points despite Appling’s struggles.

Wisconsin’s 40-degree offense Wisconsin hung 74 points on Illiing a 19-8-2 record. Even with four regular season games remaining, Barrera is still aiming for that title. “I think this is by far the best team we’ve had since I’ve been here,” he said. “I personally felt like we were rebuilding, we lost a lot of key players, but we’re there now.” “I think we have a really good shot this year,” Fabbrini added. “We’re not the most talented team in the field, but the most talented team doesn’t always win a singlegame elimination tournament.” With his career winding down, Barrera has taken time the past few games to soak in every moment with his teammates. Though he was only playing for three years, Barrera has made a lasting impact with the team. When asked about his potential legacy with the team, the forward was at a loss for words. “I don’t know, it’s been amazing,” Barrera said. “It’s hard to put into words.” His legacy won’t require words if the Illini raise another banner in March.

King of the hill

Wolverines defeated the Illini on the road. Last season’s Michigan snapped a 13-game winless streak at Assembly Hall dating to 1995. Trey Burke should now be cemented for Player of the Year consideration, as the sophomore leads the Wolverines at 17.9 points per game and 7.1 assists. He needs two assists to reach 300 for his career.

Recent history of Big Ten No. 1s The Big Ten leads all conferences with the most teams to claim the top spot in the rankings since 2004-05. Illinois held the spot for the final 15 weeks of 2004-2005 season, Wisconsin appeared at No. 1 during the 2006-07 season, as did Ohio State, which also was at the top for seven weeks in the 2010-11 season. Indiana was ranked as the nation’s best team to begin the season. Now it’s Michigan that is currently looking down at others.

For the first time since 1992, Michigan is the No. 1 team in the country. Head coach John Beilein’s team traveled to Champaign on Sunday with a shot at NCAA basketball’s top spot on the line, and for the second time in a row, the

It was pretty messed up.” Schultz was kept from skating for seven to eight months after surgery and an additional two months before he could take any contact. Both Schultz and Peter said they had problems with the opposite shoulder, which usually takes the most beating. For them and other right-handed players, the left shoulder is the one that they tend to lead with while hitting and protecting the puck on the right side of their body. The injuries are devastating,

The only games he missed were when he sustained a Grade II separation, which came after he took an open-ice hit in practice. In another instance, Fabbrini’s Grade I injury — a lesser degree of shoulder separation — came on a play very similar to Peter’s, in which Fabbrini’s arm was trapped along the board, popping the shoulder. “It sucks, really. I don’t know how else to say it,” Fabbrini said. “I played with a guy who had a Grade III separation that tore two tendons in the shoulder. It all depends on the severity of it.” The current Illini team has been hit hard too.

Expert opinion ESPN’s Joe Lunardi is projecting the Big Ten to send seven teams to the NCAA tournament, one shy of the Big East, which has eight. He predicts Michigan as a No. 1 seed in the Midwest region, Indiana as a No. 2 seed in the East and Michigan State as a No. 3 in the South. Illinois is projected as a No. 11 seed in the West, playing against No. 6-seeded UNLV in Austin, Texas. Early season Illinois wins against Butler and Gonzaga haven’t derailed the two teams’ seasons. Butler is currently projected as a No. 3 seed in the East, while Gonzaga is a No. 2 in the Midwest.

and worse yet, there is no easy solution to preventing them. Freshman Matt Flosi, who is currently dealing with a torn labrum, said strengthening the shoulder muscle can allow it to take more impact but that can’t prevent the “perfect storm” of a collision. “There’s nothing you can really do if you get hit in the right spot,” he said. Flosi was playing juniors and was supposed to join the Illini for the semester but went to the doctor for an MRI and learned that he needed surgery. Flosi played for almost a year with the injury and dealt with the soreness. Although guys like Fabbrini and Peter were able to play through the pain, Peter said he wouldn’t advise it. “If it was my freshman or sophomore year, I’d have a different mentality,” Peter said. “It really depends on the severity and the people themselves.”
