Orlando Thomas, director of achievement and pupil services for the Champaign school district, knocks on a door during the Walk as One community event near Booker T. Washington STEM School in Champaign on Thursday. Volunteers walk from the school to nearby neighborhoods and drop off bags filled with fliers about collaborative community efforts and summer youth programs.

Walk As One aims to helps youth, families Volunteers roam Douglass Park, give out ‘goody bags’ to raise awareness of summer programs BY RAFAEL GUERRERO STAFF WRITER

Orlando Thomas walked up to a home near the corner of Fifth and Vine streets as a group of volunteers looked on. No one was home. But Thomas left an orange bag on the front door. Only volunteers know what’s inside the “goody

bag.” At homes one block away on Fifth Street and Columbia Avenue, the group’s luck changed. More residents opened their doors to the group. Thomas this time could hand out the orange bags in person. The contents of the bags are fi nally revealed: fl iers, a keychain, a cup — all in the name of the school district and the Walk As One campaign. More than 140 volunteers walked around the Douglass Park neighborhood Wednesday in Champaign as part of Walk As One, a school district initiative and collaboration with the

Champaign Community Coalition. Thomas, director of pupil services at Champaign Unit 4 School District and part of the coalition that helped set up this inaugural event, said this was in development for months. According to a press release, the goal of Walk As One was to “inform Douglass Park residents of collaborative community efforts that improve the lives of youth and their families and to share information about summer programs for youth in our community.”

Several new mascot ideas have been submitted in the last few weeks to Campus Spirit Revival, a registered student organization, which pushed the deadline back a couple weeks ago. These ideas include an eagle in the format of the old Chief Illiniwek symbol and “Farm Bot,” a creation of the residents of Allen Hall in 2007, which was resubmitted to the contest. Farm Bot is a robot that shoots corn from its arms and wears a hat similar to Abraham Lincoln’s. The organization, or CSR, started the contest last year with an original deadline of April 15, but extended it to Oct. 14 in order to allow for a greater quantity of submissions. Next fall, once the group chooses the top five submissions, they will present the drawings to the administration for further consideration. The contest winner may receive a $200 gift card from the Illinois Student Senate, if approved.

DAILY ILLINI STAFF REPORT

The Illinois Senate voted to end the General Assembly Legislative Scholarship program Thursday. The measure to end the program, HB3810, passed in the Senate 43-5 after the Illinois House of Representatives passed the bill in March. “As I have repeatedly advocated in the past, scholarships — paid for by Illinois taxpayers — should be awarded only to those with merit who are in true financial need,” Gov. Pat Quinn said in a press release. The program, which provides tuition waivers to college students, allowed state legislators to award two fouryear or eight one-year tuition waivers to students of their choice. In the past, some legislators have awarded the waivers to family, and the children of political supporters and donors. The scholarships also require that the recipients reside in the legislator’s district, a rule that has also been violated on mul-

Look up if you’re inside the I Hotel and Conference Center next school year; you won’t see it, but above the ceiling there will be a garden of sorts. A 3,200 square-foot area above the I Hotel roof will soon be covered in plants that will retain around 46,000 gallons of rain a year in an effort to stem the flow of polluted storm water into the Embarras river. Termed a “green roof,” the more than $50,000 project is being funded by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency as part of a nearly $5 million state initiative designed to reduce the amount of pollution running into Illinois waterways from stormwater sources, according to a press release. “We’re dedicated to protecting our environment, and we’re always looking for ways to improve the Research Park,” said Shayan Rostam, a marketing specialist for Fox-Atkins Development, the firm that will be constructing the green roof. “We just want to make sure the

water is as clean as it can be.” Rostam said the firm hopes to begin construction in June and fi nish in July or August. The I Hotel sits upstream of the Embarras and represents a significant source of pollution, said Amy Walkenbach, project coordinator at the Illinois EPA. During rainstorms, water pours off I Hotel gutters and drain spouts and moves across parking lots and roads before ending up in the river. The journey results in significant quantities of pollutants ending up in the river. “Salt, road salt, high chlorides, (they) can be very detrimental to fish habitants, fish and the bugs that live within the river system,” Walkenbach said. “The whole food system can be disrupted by chlorides.” The roof of the I Hotel will be covered in pallets of sedum plants, which are drought-resistant, allowing them to go unwatered during summer. These plants will stop water from running off the roof.

College Rides launches new carpooling system, website BY CORINNE RUFF CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The days of horrible bus stories, expensive fees and inconvenient schedules may be over. There are two days left on the countdown to College Rides’ beta launch. By Sunday, selected members will begin to test the college carpooling system. Originally started as Illini Rides a year and a half ago, the improved website, College Rides, is an online carpooling system for college students trying to get home or to other campuses while being environmentally and economically conscious. Co-founder Jeremy Leval, graduate student, said, “The website is going to be functional, except we will be selecting people for beta testing, meaning that we’re opening it up for certain individuals to test the site.” He said the reason behind this is because he wants it to be fl awless. Over the summer, Leval and his co-founder and website programmer, graduate student Nick Gaulin, plan to work out the bugs and officially launch the website this August so students can use it when they’re coming back to school in the fall. With this new site, students with cars on campus will be able to post available seats in their car attached with a price and decide how far they are willing to drive out of their way to drop off passengers. The website will

be integrated with both Google Maps and Facebook to make it as user-friendly as possible. “The user experience is the most important thing,” Gaulin said. “It’s about fi nding people at the same time, it’s not just about saving money or getting a ride.” Although there are two other similar websites that offer carpooling on the west coast, the team says they are targeting Illinois and Big Ten schools as of now. They have between one to two student representatives at each campus. Leval said they also have addressed four safety points so students will gain the company’s trust and be more inclined to use the website. Students will be required to use their .edu email accounts and then connect through Facebook. This limits rides to college students and allows them to see mutual friends who use the website. They will be able to share contact information confidentially through a messaging system similar to Facebook messaging. And fi nally, users will be able to rate drivers and passengers on the quality of each ride. Rebecca MacDonald, freshman in LAS, said she thinks College Rides is a good idea. “I usually pay around 50 dollars for a round trip bus to Oakbrook,” she said. “Sometimes your schedule doesn’t always work with the bus, so this is a more flexible and cheaper way to get home.”

Oil bill undergoes debate in Argentina

FROM PAGE 1A

NATACHA PISARENKO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Government supporters demonstrate outside Congress as lawmakers debate the YPF bill in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on Thursday. The lower house of Argentina’s congress seemed certain to give the force of law to what Argentine President Cristina Fernandez surprisingly decreed two weeks earlier: the expropriation of Repsol’s $10.5 billion stake in the country’s YPF oil company, without a single centavo paid in advance.

Donations benefit College of ACES in search for agricultural communications chairperson

Karen Sixkiller, treasurer of Campus Spirit Revival and graduate student, said the contest is not meant to spark a debate about Chief Illiniwek. “The art contest is not antichief, it’s pro-having-a-mascot,” she said. Sixkiller said the organization aims to have the new mascot be a part of incoming freshmen’s lives because they feel they deserve something they can “rally behind” during their time at the University. “We found that there was interest in having an official mascot on campus,” Sixkiller said. “The students that are here now don’t have a symbol. I kind of resent that people are trying to stop the current students from having something that can be meaningful to us the way that the old mascot was meaningful to them.” The Council of Chiefs, a group of former Chief Illiniwek impersonators, also took steps in a different direction regarding the mascot controversy by teaming up with Gameday Spirit, 519 E. Green St., to sell T-shirts with a newly designed Chief logo. The logo makes up the profi le of a man using three blue, orange or white stripes. “The bottom line for us is that we think it’s going to sell,” said Cory Shumard, store manager for Gameday Spirit. “The traditional trademark — nothing will replace that. But we think this will sell.” Close to 600 shirts have already been sold since the release on April 20. The organization hopes to generate more awareness about the new mascot art contest before next year. “There’s criticism that this isn’t easy,” said Thomas Ferrarell, president of Campus Spirit Revival and senior in LAS. “It will become easier as more people get involved.” The organization does not have very much funding and is mostly relying on word of mouth, Facebook and fl iers. They are encouraging students to keep working on ideas over the summer and submit them to campusspiritrevival@gmail. com.

were awarded last fall. “All of these organizations are donating because they support the mission and the importance of an agricultural communications program at the University,” Abrams said. “Part of our research and service mission is to be a center of excellence — to be a resource of knowledge, expertise and exploration of all different types of issues that come up in the field of agriculture. All of our other supporters really believe in that purpose.” Abrams added that she is looking forward to having a leadership role added to the program, but the first step is to finish raising the money for the campaign. The University’s agricultural communications program is offered jointly by the College of Media and the College of ACES. According to the agricultural communications website, the program “combines an education in communications and food and environmental systems to prepare students to navigate and communicate complex issues in food, agriculture and the environment.”

Meenen said the University has a long history and “some really strong ties” with Monsanto, and the company’s support has been significant in the growth of the program. Monsanto spokeswoman Kathleen Manning said the company has always been a big supporter of the University. As a provider of technology-based solutions and agricultural products that improve farm productivity, Manning said Monsanto appreciates the University’s already strong agricultural communications program. Manning added that she believes a leadership position will be a great addition to the program, and the company was happy to contribute their support in any way possible. “We recognize that the program at the U of I is growing in the areas of advanced learning and research,” Manning said. “We’re supportive of the education that the University is providing, and we want their agricultural communications program to continue to grow.”

homes were targeted for this event, which included any home at which at least one Unit 4 student lived. Prior to the event, most of the volunteers prepared in the gymnasium of Booker T. Washington Elementary School. Trevor Nadrozny, director of curriculum at Champaign Unit 4, was busy placing all the items into his team’s orange bags. He said everything in these bags was essential in getting the message out. “We have many organizations and agencies leaving fl iers in here,” Nadrozny said. Many local officials from both Champaign and Urbana were on hand to volunteer. Champaign Mayor Don Gerard and police Chief Anthony Cobb were just a

couple of the volunteers. “It is very important to see people working together to help our community,” Cobb said. “I support that we relay information to the people about things that are going on in the city. I thank everyone and the coalition for what they’re doing.” Kelly Hill, volunteer for the Girl Scouts portion of the coalition, said walking around the neighborhood was important because volunteers could see what was going on in Douglass Park and could let residents know that the coalition and school district are ready to help. “It’s a communitywide effort to walk as one and work together and recognize what resources they have to offer and what we can give them,” Hill said.

Monsanto Company gave $250,000 to the College of ACES and the College of Media to help the agricultural communications’ search for a chairperson. The James F. Evans Endowed Chair in Agricultural Communications will be a leader in planning for the program’s growth. “Monsanto’s gift is going to give us some solid footing so we can hire a senior faculty member,” said Kimberly Meenen, director of development in the College of ACES. “We can really build upon the foundation that we have here at the University in terms of communicating the means and messages of agriculture to the public.” The program has raised over half of the $2 million needed for the campaign. Katie Abrams, professor of agricultural communications, said they have been receiving various gifts for months now, including a $55,000 joint donation made by six different communication companies and a $28,000 joint donation from five different Illinois agriculture groups.

EDITORIAL

THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID

here are some seniors on this campus who have yet to secure a job — even an internship — after graduation. How can this be? Doesn’t that line on their resume that says “University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign” mean anything? Of course it does, but in today’s economy that single line doesn’t hold as much weight as it once used to. That line needs to be followed by other lines, ones with internships and several bullet points that quantify and explain what you’ve done outside of your classes or outside this campus bubble. Luckily for students who attend this school, there is a huge network of alumni who are willing to help when it comes to landing internships and jobs. But what about students at other, smaller schools? What about students at community colleges even? Those students are still putting four years toward their education and graduating with no jobs and a huge pile of debt. Schools in the City of Chicago may be on their way to solving this inefficient problem. Health care, transportation, hospitality — these are growing sectors in the economy that can’t fill up their open jobs due to a lack of skilled talent. Chicago City Colleges, under Mayor Rahm Emanuel, launched a new program called “College to Careers,” which allows corporations in those growing fields to design a curriculum that will train students for

This sounds similar to a vocational school, which can cause discomfort for those who are accustomed to the traditional Western model of education where students spend four years at an institution, earning a liberal arts degree. Maybe it’s time to stop holding vocational schools at a lower standard than traditional universities. Graduates from these “vocational-like” City Colleges have access to internships and jobs from a huge list of partner corporations. And there’s no question as to whether the graduates will be qualified. After all, their employers designed the curriculum. With the cost of a university education skyrocketing and unemployment still high, maybe it’s time for universities to look into partnering with businesses and corporations. The Chicago City Colleges program has goals to reach by 2020, but it’s undeniable that they’re already off to a great start.

However, as a University student, there are even more people who probably have a greater impact on our lives. I’m not saying Tim Tebow didn’t rock our world, but there are people right here in the C-U area that did the same. So I’ve taken the liberty to create a “Top Influential People of the School Year” list. There are some personalities that have shaped 2011-12, such as ... President-designate Robert Easter: After President Michael Hogan announced his resignation, someone needed to get called in, and Robert Easter turned out to be the man for the job. It makes sense: Eas-

ter has been a member of the University for almost 40 years, has served as interim chancellor and carries real Orange and Blue pride from his time as a graduate student here. Hopefully, when he assumes the presidency July 1, he will take a hard look at maintaining the quality of the University’s programs and at how to help students pay for their education through the state’s fi nancial hardships ... and he stays a lot longer and has a smoother time than his last couple of predecessors. Nick Offerman: Maybe I’m a little biased because he came as an Illini Union Board guest. But it’s not everyday a salt-ofthe-earth, well-known comedian comes to campus. Plus, he was able to impart a little

wisdom into our undergraduate brains: “Say ‘please and thank you’” and “have a hobby or a discipline” are two of my favorites. Occupy C-U: This group just goes to show us that when an issue comes up nationally, it can also come down in our community — hard. A group of citizens came together to tell the world they were the 99 percent, and they protested everywhere in the C-U area, complete with noticeable signs and Guy Fawkes masks. Occupy C-U stood by some universal Occupy movements, like the “Move Your Money” effort to transfer more money into local banks, and gained support from groups like the Illinois Education Association. Lisa Troyer: Hogan’s former

chief of staff really stirred up waves when she allegedly wrote anonymous emails to the faculty advisory group, criticizing them of forcing a consensus on Hogan’s plan of enrollment management. After a University-launched investigation, she eventually resigned from her position. She ultimately taught us two things: The Hogan administration may have been a culture of unethical behavior, and when you must be sneaky, do it on a computer that’s not yours. Women’s volleyball team: Our powerhouse of volleyball players have never been short of awesome, but this year they really seemed to pull out all the stops. Though they lost 1-3 to UCLA in the NCAA championship, they still pulled an amaz-

ing 32-5 record. Though I’m not the biggest sports fan in the world, they’ve made me regret not going to every single one of their games. The Chief: Even though administration got rid of him in 2008, he still pops up in conversation, protests and healthy debates inside cultural houses. The Council of Chiefs recently revamped the image and gave the University a new Chief symbol. Of course, many students and faculty maintain that the premise of the Chief is still offensive to a certain culture. Whether you love the Chief or think it’s high time we move on, you have to admit: He’s an interesting catalyst for student discourse.

LETTER

MCB scandal unmasks necessary repairs I was disappointed to read the DI’s recent report on a cheating scandal in the Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) department. There is no question that the students involved committed academic misconduct and deserve punishment. However, I think University faculty and administrators also need to take a hard look at this incident and consider reforms. The MCB cheating scandal is a symptom of a larger problem that has nothing to do with students’ lax morals or ease of communication in the digital age. The root of the problem for largescale courses is the gigantic class size itself! Enrollments cannot simply increase without course reforms; otherwise, breaches of academic integrity are inevitable. Thus, faculty need to make a fundamental choice: should I demand lower class enrollments and more personnel support, or should I completely redesign my course for large scale? What do effective reforms look like in the digital age? Anyone who teaches a large course at the University (and is unwilling to fight for smaller class sizes) needs to reflect on this question. What I see is this: our world today is characterized by the declining importance of information, which can easily be looked up. Cognitive skills, on the other hand, are more important than ever and need to be the top priority of faculty during the design of assessments. Clearly, a lab practical that can be damaged by the mere dissemination of information is a poorly designed assessment that invites misconduct. The MCB department and the campus at large can do better. MICHAEL EVANS, graduate student

Tips to survive your finals week

Prevent a mental breakdown as the year winds down MELISSA ESPAÑA Staff writer

F

inals week is stressful enough as it is. It encompasses long nights studying and memorizing lecture slides for cumulative exams, and it’s everyone’s final push to get that desired grade. But add in two finals in one day, work shifts and maybe even a 10-page paper and you have yourself a recipe for a mental breakdown. Sometimes the actual exams aren’t the only thing that students need to worry about during finals week. A lot of students have parttime jobs with shifts changing just for finals week, and some unlucky individuals have two finals scheduled on the same day. So to add to the already stressful week, these other circumstances really do take a toll. Here are a few tips to help you cope with the added stress of finals.

If you’ll be working during finals week: Obviously, the better thing to do is to opt out of taking shifts during finals. Talk to your supervisor or manager; they are usually understanding about letting you take the day off for academic reasons. However, if you have a job where working during finals is required, such as in Dining Services, then schedule your shifts wisely around your exams. If you don’t have an exam until Wednesday, use the weekend and maybe Monday to work your shifts. If your tests are evenly spread out throughout the week, schedule a shift right after every exam instead of cramming all your shifts together before the exams begin. That way you won’t be worrying about

studying during work, and after your exam, you can use your shift as a break from all the reading and cramming.

If you have two exams in one day: Last semester, two of my classes always scheduled their exams on the same day. Whether it was for finals or not, I always had to plan out my study schedule for those two classes, and the hardest part was knowing which one was more important to focus on. I managed it by studying harder for the class that I thought had the more difficult material. For days when I had more than one exam, studying for both of them on the same day made it much worse. Everything got jumbled up, and it became hard to focus on the material while studying two completely different subjects, such as food science and philosophy. A good way to prepare is to start studying ahead of time and study one thing at a time. Don’t try to memorize two different lectures in one day.

If you have a paper to write that counts as a final: When studying for a class isn’t necessary and instead gets replaced with an eight-, 10- or even 15-page paper, sometimes that becomes the biggest thing to worry about. If the topic is difficult or the amount of work that needs to go into the paper is heavy, it seems easy to put it off until the very last minute. However, that will just lead to more stress as the deadline nears. Instead of procrastinating, take the time to knock out that essay, or at least a big part of it, before you start studying for your exams. That way the paper is out of the way, and you’re free to just focus on your tests.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The widow of a suicidal animal owner who released dozens of exotic creatures last fall will get the five surviving animals back from an Ohio zoo on Friday. And a friend says the woman plans to take the animals back to the farm in eastern Ohio where they previously lived. Cyndi Huntsman told The Associated Press on Thursday that Marian Thompson intends to return the animals to the Zanesville farm once she gets the two leopards, two primates and a bear back from the Columbus zoo. The animals have been held at the zoo since October under a state-issued quarantine order, which was lifted Monday. A statement from the zoo on Thursday said the animals would be transferred back to Thompson on Friday. Thompson is the widow of Terry Thompson, who released 56 animals — including black bears, mountain lions and Bengal tigers — from his eastern Ohio farm Oct. 18 before he committed suicide. Fearing for the public’s safety, authorities killed 48 of the animals. Three leopards, two Celebes macaques and a bear survived and were taken to the Columbus zoo after the release. One

Limited-time offers profit McDonald’s BY CANDICE CHOI AP FOOD INDUSTRY WRITER

NEW YORK (AP) — The newest stars on the McDonald’s menu won’t be around for long. The world’s biggest hamburger chain is rolling out two menu items that will be available only during the summer months. A seasonal blueberry banana nut oatmeal will be available nationwide by mid-month, and an iced drink called the Cherry Berry Chiller is already available everywhere. In the years ahead, McDonald’s is expected to ramp up its pipeline of limited-time offers to keep customers flocking to its restaurants. The Oak Brook, Ill.-based fast food company began its focus on limited-time offers on a national scale last year after research showed that variety was a top pri-

ority for consumers, said Wendy Cook, vice president of U.S. marketing at McDonald’s. Seasonal items give loyal customers something new to try, but also bring in new customers who otherwise might go elsewhere, she said. “Obviously customers are out there and they’re frequenting different places,” Cook said. “They’re starved for variety.” The new focus on limited-time offers comes as McDonald’s looks to extend its dominance in a rapidly changing fast food industry. In 2006, the top three fast food chains in the U.S. in terms of sales were all hamburger chains — McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s. Now Subway is No. 2 and Starbucks No. 3, with sales at both companies growing at a much faster clip, according to the food industry

researcher Technomic Inc. For McDonald’s, the limitedtime offer also lets the company adapt more easily to evolving consumer tastes that are leaning more toward fresh, seasonal ingredients. Since McDonald’s operates on such a vast scale — it has 14,000 restaurants nationwide — sourcing the fruits for offerings such as the new the Cherry Berry Chiller can be difficult. Last year, McDonald’s had a total of eight limited-time offers that spanned menu categories ; the company is planning to increase that figure this year. It offered Chicken McBites earlier this year. The blueberry banana nut oatmeal (290 calories) and Cherry Berry Chiller (200 to 330 calories, depending on size) will be available until August.

PLAYING THE

MENTAL

GAME About to graduate, Nevolo considers what it takes to go pro BY GREG ZECK STAFF WRITER

Editor’s note: This is the second part of a two-part profile on senior men’s tennis standout Dennis Nevolo. You can find the full article online at DailyIllini.com. No other sport is quite like tennis. There’s a feeling of isolation because there are only two people on the court. With the distance between the two players, there’s essentially no trash talking. No one else is to blame if a mistake is made. That’s the reason why staying strong mentally is so important. Anybody who spends time around Illinois men’s tennis senior Dennis Nevolo knows that he can sometimes live in his own world, which to outsiders may seem like he’s not focusing. He knows he lives in it and accepts it, and so do his teammates and coaches. His teammates quickly picked up on it one day while in the weight room during his freshman year. Nevolo picked a weight up off the ground and put his hand up against a mirrored wall for bal-

ance. The strength trainer saw the handprint impression it left and handed Nevolo solution to clean it up. As he started wiping, he subconsciously put his other hand against the wall again, prompting an “Are you kidding me?” from the trainer. Parking his car is a story in and of itself. Teammates used to post pictures to Facebook making fun of how poor his parking jobs can be. “My parking job has improved tremendously over the years,” Nevolo joked. “After seeing some of the pictures, I made sure I parked the car correctly. It has improved, so don’t worry.” Living in his own world has also been beneficial. His close friend Riley Hoff-Larocca said he went up to Nevolo after a match saying that his opponent reminded him of another tennis player. “I told him: ‘Did you see his serve? He looks exactly the same,’” Hoff-Larocca said.

Illini baseball: A superstitious bunch BY JAMAL COLLIER

B

aseball is known as a game of failures. Even the best hitters get a hit just three out of every 10 at-bats. That’s why baseball players are also the most superstitious: When something goes right, they try by any means to replicate the same process. The Illinois baseball team is no exception. “Baseball players have always been superstitious for whatever reason or other,” Illinois head coach Dan Hartleb said. “These guys all have their own thing, and the best thing I can do is to stay away from it and let them do what they do.” Here’s a closer look at some of the things the Illini have to do before every game.

STAFF WRITER

Third baseman Brandon Hohl and his bat

Everyone on the team knows which bat is Brandon Hohl’s. It’s the stickiest one on the rack, drenched with the most pine tar. When Hohl first gets a new bat, he takes off the knob on the bottom and replaces it with a new one and re-tapes it, just to avoid cutting up his hands. Then he adds pine tar, and a lot of it. Before every at-bat, Hohl reapplies pine tar for better grip until he gets a certain feel. Hohl first got used to the feel of pine tar in high school when he played in a league with wooden bats. He then decided to use it on aluminum handles and really liked the feel of it. If he doesn’t have pine tar, he uses dirt to replicate the feeling he needs to feel comfortable at the plate. But dirt can be hard to find at Illinois Field, where the infield is made of field turf. Once during the summer, Hohl decided to spray his bat with skin spray, which is used to stick athletic tape to skin, for grip when he ran out of pine tar and didn’t have any dirt.

Pitcher Kevin Johnson and his shoes

Every Friday this season, the size 12 and a half foot cleats of Kevin Johnson have toed the rubber for the Illini. The white shoes Johnson wears have been cleaned thoroughly for as many as 10 minutes with Scrubbing Bubbles. “I want to look good for my first inning,” Johnson said. ”(My shoes are) the only thing that I have that I don’t wash on a consistent basis, so I have to do something.” Since the beginning of his freshman year, the junior has prepared for his starts by scrubbing his shoes, but this is his first time ever wearing white spikes, which are harder to maintain. He even makes sure he has extra Scrubbing Bubbles at home to avoid situations like his start against Ohio State this year. Before that game, he didn’t have any and was forced to use water. It didn’t diminish his pitching that day (7 2/3 innings with five strikeouts and one earned run), but it’s not something Johnson wants to have happen again.

Shortstop Thomas Lindauer and his gloves

Thomas Lindauer is easily a defensive-minded player. He takes the most pride in the Illini being at or near the top of the NCAA in double plays turned per game all season long. So he is naturally very particular about his gloves. Lindauer can tell when something is off about his glove right away. “I let people put them on, but I try not to let people play catch with them,” he said. “I know (pitcher) Kevin Johnson likes to try and steal them sometimes.” Lindauer doesn’t like a deep pocket to develop with his gloves and wants them stiff so they don’t close very well. So once his glove begins to get a little loose, he tosses it and buys another. Lindauer enjoys buying gloves too. He normally buys them online, but during the team’s trip to South Carolina this year he had an impulse purchase at a Rawlings store. He carries a game glove and two or three other mitts that he uses in practice. “I don’t know, it’s a different glove everyday for me,” Lindauer said. “Right now I have three, working on another one. Then we have the game glove, and if it breaks I’ll move on to glove No. 2, and if that breaks I’ll move on to glove No. 3.”

Pitcher Nick Chmielewski and his resistance bands

After undergoing Tommy John surgery in April 2011, Nick Chmielewski had to start using resistance bands to help rebuild his arm strength. And he’s rehabbed adnauseum. Everyday, Chmielewski does three sets of 10 to 15 of anywhere from 12 to 15 different exercises. He joked that he’s built a bond with his resistance bands, and he doesn’t want anybody messing with them. “I’ve been using these things so much, I just don’t like anybody even like touching them. Like picking them off the ground,” Chmielewski said. The same handles he first got after his surgery are still on the resistance bands now, but he’s changed the ropes twice. He still has the two broken ropes in his locker “as trophies,” Chmielewski said with a laugh.

Center fielder Willie Argo and his goals

Before every game, Willie Argo takes out a paper and pen and writes down his goals for the day. But goals such as hitting home runs, stealing bases or throwing out someone at the plate will not be found on this list. “I try to focus on the process or my attitude,” Argo said. “It’ll be like: ‘one positive comment toward a teammate every inning, focus every pitch, be aggressive, be confident, relax or no body language.’ Just little reminders that I can take out and look at if I get flustered or start to maybe get a little negative attitude.” Argo started this habit after winter practice when he got the idea from reading the book “The Mental Game of Baseball” by H.A. Dorfman and Karl Kuehl. Argo said the book taught him that writing down goals can serve as a reminder of what he’s doing and what he needs to do to play well. So far it’s working for him, although he admits he doesn’t always achieve all of his goals. “That’s part of it,” he said. “Taking them out and looking at them after the game and seeing if I achieved my goals. Or seeing what goals helped me or if I need to re-evaluate them.” PHOTOS BY JOSHUA BECKMAN THE DAILY ILLINI

From life to sports: much to learn at UI KEVIN KAPLAN Sports columnist

ll-American Laura DeBruler clapped when Bellatrix Lestrange exploded into dust. I’m pretty sure I also spotted Tyler Griffey in the theater during that midnight showing of the final Harry Potter movie. If many in that jampacked room recognized the two, then like me they must have kept to themselves. The pair of Illini appeared to blend in with the rest of the Illinois students and local residents. But why shouldn’t they? Athletes are not all that different from the other classmates with whom I’ve shared the best years of my life. Moving through the ranks of the Daily Illini sports section, I have of course built a habit of keeping tabs on athletes. I am not the only one watching them sprint down the sidelines of Memorial Stadium or drain treys at the Assembly Hall: My work for the DI would obviously be in vain if I were alone in watching sports. But I watch them differently now. While many who now attend this school were growing up in Chicago’s suburbia watching Michael Jordan, I was enveloped by Lon Kruger’s Illini. I’m from Champaign, a townie, and that means I grew up bleeding orange and blue. In no way did I grow up dreaming of attending Illi-

Beleaguered Bulls attempt to move on without Rose BY DAN GELSTON THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PHILADELPHIA — The Chicago Bulls took flight for Philadelphia without both a series lead and superstar guard Derrick Rose. They counted on having both after the first two games against the 76ers. Rose’s torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee cost him the postseason and any chance the Bulls had of sweeping the Sixers in the best-of-seven series. Rose’s absence in Game 2 was the break the Sixers needed to became the first No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference to win a game on the road since 2003. The Sixers head home and are ready to show Philadelphia they’re more than a minor speed bump in Chicago’s playoff run — they believe more than ever they can beat the top team in the East and make a big march of their own through May. “We look forward to coming back and giving them a good show,” Sixers guard Andre Iguodala said Thursday. Game 3 is Friday night and Game 4 Sunday in Philadelphia. The best-of-seven series is tied 1-1. No player wants to see another suffer the type of injury that Rose did. He’s the reigning NBA MVP and one of the more exciting and dominant players in the game.

But he’s gone for good this postseason — and the Sixers are ready to pounce. The Sixers had the type of production in Game 6 they needed to have any shot at beating the Bulls over the next three games. Jrue Holiday was 11 of 15 from the field for 26 points, and the Sixers shot 59 percent overall. Lou Williams was clutch off the bench, going 8 of 13 after hitting just 1 of 6 shots in the opener, and Chicago product Evan Turner chipped in with 19 points, seven rebounds and six assists. “Our younger guys,” coach Doug Collins said, “they didn’t blink.” Holiday and Turner gave yet another glimpse of why they could be the backcourt pairing for the next decade in Philadelphia. It’s just a matter of doing it again in Game 3. Then Game 4. And on it goes. Collins knows the next step in the duo’s growth toward becoming a dominant pair teeters on consistency. For all the games that leave Collins raving about their play, the under-25 stars have stretches where they show their age and inexperience. Collins said there’s “no question” Turner is one of Philadelphia’s best players. Holiday might have blossomed into one of the top five point guards in the league this season

had the lockout not shortened the schedule and robbed him of valuable practice time. But that time is coming for the 21-yearold guard. “Jrue’s never going to be a pure point guard. I don’t want him to be a pure point guard,” Collins said. “But can he be like a (Russell) Westbrook or Deron Williams or those scoring point guards who put the pressure on the opponent all the time and yet make plays?” The Sixers might need another season before they have a definitive answer to that question. The Bulls don’t have that kind of luxury to get production from Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer. Expected to help carry the load without Rose in the lineup, they combined for only 17 points. In the second half, the pair missed five of six shots and let the Sixers run wild around them. Boozer attempted only one shot in the second half. Boozer has 18 points and 12 rebounds combined in the first two games. The Bulls will find themselves in a series hole at that pace. “We trust the system,” Deng said. “It’s not one guy who’s going to try to come out and take the load by himself. We want to do it as a team. All year, we always believed that for us to win games, (we have) to rely on our defense.” More alarming for the Bulls was their inability to stop the Sixers, particularly in the third

quarter. Turner scored 11 in the quarter, and Philadelphia wiped out a 55-47 deficit. The Sixers outscored Chicago 36-14 in the third, turning an eight-point deficit into an 83-69 lead. They also outrebounded the Bulls 14-5 in the frame. Chicago’s shutdown defense can make up for Rose’s absence as much as Deng and Boozer finding their offensive groove. “Defense and rebounding, that’s the whole key,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. “The big thing was they got into the open floor. They got easy baskets. You get easy baskets early in the game, you’re going to get confidence. When a team gets confidence, they’re much harder to shut down.” The Sixers trust they will play more quarters ahead like that sizzling third in Game 2. They want to prove it home where they haven’t played since April 17 and haven’t won since March 31. The Sixers lost their last four games at the Wells Fargo Center.Iguodala was limited in Thursday’s practice because of right Achilles’ tendinitis but expects to be close to full strength for Game 3. Iguodala is one of the toughest perimeter defenders in the league and helped stifle Deng in Game 2. “I feel like I can think the game,” Iguodala said, “even when I’m not at full strength.”

Brain disease linked with football violence KEVIN THORNTON Sports columnist

On

a day where the NFL handed down player suspensions for involvement in the Saints bounty scandal, shocking news surfaced that 43-year-old Junior Seau was dead. The 20-year veteran linebacker and sure-fire hall of famer was discovered Wednesday inside his California home with a gunshot wound in his chest; currently his death is believed to be a suicide. It becomes clear that although he appeared to be fine on the surface, Seau had been struggling with depression and possibly other mental problems for some time. This revelation certainly adds a new tone to Seau’s near-death experience in 2010. According to the story, he drove his truck off the edge of a 100-foot cliff after falling asleep at the wheel; he suffered only minor injuries and was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you saw any of the coverage Wednesday or Thursday, you would have undoubtedly seen how stunned his family and friends were to see the results of his silent struggles. Unfortunately, this situation is nothing new for the NFL. Seau’s possible suicide is just the latest in a recent string of former NFL players to commit suicide. One can’t help but compare Seau’s death to Dave Duerson’s suicide last year. The former Chicago Bears safety shot himself in the chest but not before writing a note to his family requesting that his brain be donated to Boston University to be studied for damage. Duerson suffered at least 10 concussions during his NFL career and started to notice changes in his behavior in the years before his death, according to

his family. Further inspection revealed brain damage and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative neurological condition associated with repeat concussions. It has symptoms similar to those of Alzheimer’s and dementia. CTE has been well documented in the past, affecting mostly boxers, but in recent years more football players and other athletes who suffer frequent hits to the head are being diagnosed. It’s not just concussions that can cause CTE; frequent sub-concussions over a long period of time can also have similar effects. The repeated head trauma leads to the deterioration of brain tissue, which also causes the build-up of an abnormal protein called ‘tau’. What’s worse is that CTE’s effects get more serious as the years progress, remaining virtually unnoticeable while eating away at brain cells, until it causes depression and other cognitive problems. Playing linebacker for 20 years in the NFL, it would seem logical that Seau’s brain would have been on the receiving end of some pretty forceful impacts, but there’s not a definitive way to diagnose CTE without performing a posthumous biopsy of the brain yet. Some NFL veterans believe the league knowingly put the players at risk, not doing enough to prevent these kinds of injuries from happening or informing them of the longterm effects on their bodies. For others, however, the issue is as simple as free will: no one forced you to play in the NFL and you alone are responsible for the long-term risks. Basically, the NFL is a violent place, so you shouldn’t be surprised if you happen to have brain damage or other negative consequences later in life. In an attempt to save its reputation and profit margin, the NFL has begun to place more focus on player safety. Institut-

DENIS POROY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A San Diego Chargers #55 jersey sits in the foreground as fans look over a memorial set up in the driveway of former NFL star Junior Seau’s home on Thursday in Oceanside, Calif. Seau’s apparent suicide stunned an entire city and saddened former teammates who recalled the former NFL star’s ferocious tackles and habit of calling everybody around him “Buddy.” ing and enforcing new concussion testing policies, makes it harder for players to re-enter the game after a significant head injury. The removal of the wedge on kickoffs and implementation of advanced helmet technology will help to minimize player risk, while not compromising what makes the NFL so successful. Most importantly, the league has demonstrated its commitment to player safety with

new rules and fines for helmetto-helmet contact and hits on defenseless players. It may be too late for this generation of NFL veterans to prevent the onset of CTE and its symptoms, but it’s important to stop the cycle before it’s too late for younger players. And it’s not just the NFL that needs to take note; college and high school players are just as susceptible to these brain injuries. High school athletes suf-

fer about 150,000 concussions, according to a 2009 “60 Minutes” segment on concussions and brain disease. Although the hits may not be as severe compared to the NFL, but since younger brains are more vulnerable to injury, it’s important to educate football players early. The NFL finds itself at a crossroad, and more change is coming. The NFL will always be a violent league, but more infor-

Cubs closing pitcher falls against Reds for 4-3 win

BY R.B. FALLSTROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Cardinals were on the verge of walloping a Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher for the second straight game. Then they started swinging and missing. Erik Bedard avoided a fate like that of A.J. Burnett, who gave up 12 runs in 2 2-3 innings a day earlier. The lefty survived a rocky first inning and struck out a season-high 11, including a team-record seven in a row, and the Pittsburgh Pirates set a club mark by fanning 17 batters Thursday in a 6-3 win. “I don’t know if we’d have knocked him out, their bullpen had had a lot of use already,” manager Mike Matheny said. “But we were one pitch away from really making something happen. “You look up later and you realize, ‘Hey, it seems like we’re all over this guy and it’s 2-0.’” The Cardinals outscored the Pirates 7-0 in the first inning in the series, and got off to another fast start against Bedard after doubles by Rafael Furcal, David Freese and Allen Craig made it 2-0. St. Louis had just two hits the next six innings and came up empty with the bases loaded twice, with Matt Holliday hitting a comebacker to end the second and Craig grounding out against Juan Cruz to end the seventh. “Part of it is you let a pitcher off the hook, he gets through a jam, he finds a rhythm,” Matheny said. “We had a lot of chases on the breaking ball. He really slowed down the tempo, kept us off-balance all day.” Bedard (2-4) was pulled after five innings. Pittsburgh relievers kept piling up the strikeouts — the 17 Ks were the most by Pittsburgh in any game since they fanned 18 Cubs over 20 innings in 1980. The last time the Cardinals whiffed so often in a nine-inning game was 1989, when they struck out 18 times against the Cubs. St. Louis struck out 19 times in a 20-inning loss to the Mets in 2010. Pedro Alvarez hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the sixth as Pittsburgh avoided a sweep. Clint Barmes had a pair of RBI doubles for the Pirates, who completed a 3-4 trip and will have 18 of the next 25 at home to end May. Jose Tabata, a career .343 hitter against St. Louis, added three hits and a steal. Jake Westbrook (3-2) lost to Pittsburgh for the second time in three starts, giving up four runs in 6 1-3 innings.

Cardinals strike out 17 times in 6-3 loss to Pirates

BY JOE KAY

CINCINNATI — Carlos Marmol got a little wild again, losing a three-run lead in the ninth. He might have lost his closer job as well. The Cincinnati Reds scored three runs in the ninth off Marmol to tie it, and Scott Rolen hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning for a 4-3 victory and a split of their two-game series. The Reds needed a lot of help to pull it out, and got it from a reliever having trouble throwing strikes. Marmol walked three of the five batters he faced, one with the bases loaded. “You have a game like that — I’m embarrassed right now,” Marmol said. Marmol has blown three of his five save chances, walking 12 in 8 2-3 innings. Manager Dale Sveum said after the game that he’ll consider moving him out of the closer’s role. “You’ve got to throw strikes, and you have to throw strikes with your fastball,” Sveum said. “Throwing 3-0 sliders with a 3-0 lead is unacceptable. A two-run home run won’t cost you the game. If you’re closing games, you have to throw strikes. We’ve talked about this. Sveum said he would probably use left-hander James Russell or righty Rafael Dolis in the ninth if he made a change. “My options are Russell, Dolis.,” Sveum said. “That’s about it. If you have to go with a change, you use matchups. It depends on what is happening in that ninth inning.” Marmol had 34 saves in 44 chances last season. He said he’d like to remain the closer, but would accept a role change. “He’s going to decide what to do,” Marmol said. “I agree with that.” Marmol spoiled a big moment for

mation has to be learned about how CTE and similar diseases are caused and how they can be prevented or cured. Players and fans alike both need to understand the risks that go along with America’s real favorite pastime. It’s unfortunate that some of the best people have to die to do so.

Chicago Cubs closing pitcher Carlos Marmol throws to first base as St. Louis Cardinals’ Erik Komatsu runs to the base in the ninth inning. St. Louis won 5-1 on April 25. Ryan Dempster, who returned from the disabled list and pitched eight shutout innings on his 35th birthday. He allowed only three hits and was in line to get his first win since Aug. 11. Dempster got the better of Homer Bailey, who turned 26 on Thursday. It was the first time in major league history that both starters were celebrating a birthday, according to information provided by the Reds, citing the Elias Sports Bureau. Both pitchers signed baseballs for the Hall of Fame. “That’s something neat,” Dempster said. The Reds stood at the plate and watched Marmol self-destruct in the ninth. He walked Willie Harris and Joey Votto on nine pitches to open the inning. An error by Ian Stewart — the third baseman rushed trying to turn a double play — let in a run.

Jay Bruce singled to load the bases, and Marmol walked Ryan Ludwick to force in a run that made it 3-2 and ended the closer’s outing. Dolis (1-2) relieved and got a double play that left it tied at 3. Marmol threw 18 pitches, only six of them strikes. “Sometimes he’s throwing strikes, and then he’s practically unhittable,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “The key is to swing at strikes and make him throw balls. We don’t have a whole lot of guys who hit him well.” Another error helped the Reds win it. Zack Cozart singled in the 10th off Dolis, who then threw wildly to first base on Chris Heisey’s sacrifice attempt. Rolen followed with his sacrifice fly to deep right field. Logan Ondrusek (2-0) pitched the 10th. The bad ninth inning spoiled Chicago’s best power display of the season.

830 MISCELLANEOUS

Starlin Castro, Bryan LaHair and Geovany Soto hit homers off Bailey, who lasted six innings. LaHair has provided the bulk of the Cubs’ power this season, hitting seven of their 14 homers. Chicago hit only nine in April, fewest in the majors, but had five in the two games at Great American Ball Park — all of them solo shots. Chicago now has homered in a season-high four consecutive games. Dempster’s long winless streak — now 13 games — is partly due to a lack of support. He lowered his ERA to 0.95 on with the eight shutout innings. Last year, he allowed only one run over seven innings and got a no-decision in a 4-1 win over the Dodgers. The Cubs also activated reliever Kerry Wood off the disabled list before the game. He’d been sidelined with fatigue in his pitching shoulder.

Freshmen expected to hold team up for Big Tens BY JOHNATHAN HETTINGER STAFF WRITER

One year ago, Alex Burge kept tabs on how the Illinois menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golf team was faring at its major tournaments by refreshing the live scoring on GolfStat. com. Then-seniors Scott Langley and Chris DeForest, as well as then-junior Luke Guthrie, paced the Illini to a Big Ten Championship and a fifth-place finish nationally. The three-time All-Big Ten teammates both made their respective runs at the NCAA Championships, with Langley winning the 2010 individual title and DeForest finishing 13th in 2011. One year later, Burge, now a freshman at Illinois, and his roommate, fellow freshman Brian Campbell, spent Thursday preparing for their final exams. Meanwhile DeForest, now on the Nationwide Tour, teed off at the Stadion Classic in Athens, Ga. Langley is not a member of any tour, but has golfed in three PGA Tour events this year, making the cut in two. Burge and Campbell now fill the lineup spots left empty by Langley and Deforest. At last weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Big Ten Championships, the first-years joined Guthrie, junior Mason Jacobs and sophomore Thomas Pieters on Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; five-man squad, and both contributed to the Illiniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth consecutive Big Ten Championship. Campbell finished third out of the Illini and 15th overall, while Burge contributed with a 47th-place finish for the Orange and Blue.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every recruiting class we go through, coach Small and I ask one question, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Can we see a potential recruit as a Big Ten Champion?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;, and if the answer is yes, then we recruit them,â&#x20AC;? assistant coach Zach Guthrie said. Neither Burge nor Campbell competed in the fall season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coming in, they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play that well in the fall,â&#x20AC;? Zach Guthrie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They did a lot of really good work from October to January and made some big-time strides.â&#x20AC;? Both freshmen made their first appearances with matchplay wins at the Tinervin Cup in January. Campbell has been in the top five ever since, but Burge didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t crack the five-man lineup until the Augusta State Invitational on March 31. Campbell and Burge have now contributed to Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; three top-finishes of the spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With golf, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier to contribute right away,â&#x20AC;? Zach Guthrie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like football where you may need to get bigger or learn the playbook; you just need to come in and shoot low scores.â&#x20AC;? Zach Guthrie said he expects Burge and Campbell to stay in the lineup for regionals, but they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t decided the final lineup for the NCAA Championships. Both freshmen have high goals for the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My goal is to get better and win some tournaments, win the Big Ten, become an All-American,â&#x20AC;?

Softball to play Penn State after last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s snub BY DAN LONGO STAFF WRITER

Despite having almost identical records last season, the Penn State softball team was selected to play in the NCAA regionals while Illinois was left out.

nois, but Fighting Illini athletics proved my window into the college world. I’ve mentioned this countless times when discussing my “towniness” with other students. No, I never partied at frats during high school; very few high schoolers do. No, my parents do not work for the University. No, I don’t live at home while attending school. Yes, Champaign does actually extend beyond the boundaries of campus. But in some ways I do fit the stereotype. Were you wondering how far off campus my parents’ house is? I will usually throw out the reference that it’s a 30-minute walk from Memorial Stadium. Athletics told me I wanted to go to a school at least as large as Illinois, in a conference at least as competitive as the Big Ten. Collegiate athletics provide a camaraderie and tradition impossible to replicate. If athletics are what brought me here, they will undoubtedly

be one of my defining memories from this time. But those memories will no longer necessarily be shaped as a fan. As a DI reporter and sports editor, I’ve conducted hundreds of interviews and met dozens of athletes and coaches, past and present. I’ve interviewed everyone from professional athletes to collegiate walk-ons, from Olympians to All-Americans to benchwarmers. But as a student, I have learned to define these people not solely based on their athletic achievements. I’ve seen 18-year-old athletes get into bars, and I’ve seen 21-year-old athletes who don’t drink. I’ve seen athletes participate actively in class, and I’ve seen athletes who never go to class. I’ve seen Illinois athletes laugh and cry, succeed and fail. The perspective gained from those experiences has benefited me as much as anything else in college. College is where, as an underclassman, I fearlessly pursued randos on the Joe’s dance floor. It is where I would take that long walk down Fourth Street

Nevolo’s reply: “To be honest, I didn’t pay attention to anything he did in between points at all because he was trying to make it a mental battle. He was trying to rile me up, so I just blocked out everything he did.” “There’s times where his airheadedness is kinda like, ‘What is going on?’” Hoff-Larocca said. “It also works to his advantage as far as making good decisions.” *** Mental toughness is starting to come into play in this April 22 match against Purdue’s Mark Kovacs. Fatigue is setting in for both players, and mental mistakes can make the difference in the match. Nevolo has the first serve and wins the first game, but Kovacs responds to make it 1-1. The next game goes to 40-40 quickly, as neither player can convert once he gets the advantage. Nevolo keeps grinding. Kovacs keeps pounding. Nevolo eventually squeaks out a hard-fought win in the game, seemingly giving him the momentum. But Kovacs knows by now this match is far from over and that he can hang in with the higher-ranked player. Kovacs responds by holding serve before both players do again. It’s another dogfight at 3-3, and Kovacs has nothing to lose. With the match drawing closer to an end, whoever wins the game puts himself in a great position to win the match. He will have all the momentum, as the two go into deuce after deuce after deuce. But the always-persistent Nevolo squeaks by and go up 4-3. He’s got Kovacs down on the scoreboard and overthinking the next game. The wind finally starts to behave as Nevolo breaks Kovacs’ serve. The score is suddenly 5-3. Kovacs know he’s beaten. Nevolo rolls in the final game to pick up the victory. *** Matches like these have become common. Either Nevolo plays one of the seven players in the nation ranked higher than him or he plays somebody looking to knock him off and pull off a big upset. Nevolo finished second at the ITA National Indoors tournament in November, losing only to Virginia’s Mitchell Frank, who is currently ranked No. 1. He’s always expected to perform, and anything less than a win at times seems implausible for a team that depends on him so much. He’s dealt with the expectations by posting a 14-5 record in the dual season. “I know he feels a lot of pressure all the time,” Illinois head coach Dancer said. “His teammates certainly expect him to be a win every time and that’s not easy. ... He’s having to take everybody’s best shot every time out on the court and his record he’s had this year, is indicative of what a great player he is and what a great leader he’s

from Scott Hall to Green Street every time I went to The Daily Illini to get my stories edited. It is where I frequented Late Night and Fat Don’s. It is where, after living in Champaign for nearly two decades, I actually lived in Urbana for a year. It is a place I entered with an uncertain future, but I am leaving having found a career path in journalism and writing, in large part through four great years with the DI. On tracks parallel to my own, college is where Angela Bizzarri learned to cook. It is where Andrew Riley learned the business skills he hopes will lead to a better life for his family in Jamaica. Those are the kinds of memories that each individual to come through Champaign will carry forever. Sports, however, provide the shared memories for the masses. Everyone knows that the University of Illinois is where Red Grange single-handedly beat Michigan and where Deron Williams hit “The Shot” against Arizona. But it is so much more. If college is not the best time of your life, I envy you, for that can only mean you have

achieved the greatest of successes in the real world. Take Kendall Gill, a member of the 1989 Flyin’ Illini team who was selected with the fifth overall pick in the 1990 NBA Draft and spent 15 seasons in the NBA. When I spoke to him at Illinois basketball’s most recent alumni event, I asked him where the college years ranked for him. His answer: “My college years were the best. You know, winning the game against Syracuse up in Minneapolis to go to the Final Four was the best moment I’ve ever had in basketball. And, you know, even to this day I still have not felt anything that comes close to that moment. That’s a great memory. I even pop in that tape every now and then just to watch it to get that feeling again.” If you still have time left at this university, please savor it, because it will be over before you know it. If, like me, you will soon move on past college, either to graduate school or the workforce, please, no matter how hard it may be to do, try and top it. Kevin is a senior in Media.

been for us.” But he’s used to it by now. He played in the top three singles spots as a freshman, and over the last three seasons he’s played almost exclusively at the No. 1 spot. The hard work has helped him earn 112-52 singles record — good for the sixth-most wins in school history and a .683 winning percentage. “You never wanna label or put too much pressure on a guy, but he’s been the program,” Dancer said. “He’s been the face of the program for four years in a row. He’s one of the few guys on any national team that’s come in and played No. 1 or 2 all the way throughout. It’s such a difficult transition to do that.” Though without a national or conference title, Nevolo has no regrets about his time at Illinois and said, “It’s the journey that brings the happiness, not the destination.” He admitted that he wished the program had more stability at times, but he is confident it is heading in the right direction. The next two seasons the team will boast solid recruiting classes largely composed of players from the Midwest, highlighted next season by Jared Hiltzik, who is currently ranked No. 4 by tennisrecruiting.net. “It’s an unbelievable program, and I’m glad to be a part of it,” Nevolo said. “As the culture keeps building now, it’s gonna be really exciting over these next few years.” Nevolo will try competing on the professional level next year, though there’s still Big Tens and the NCAA tournament on the horizon. He’s played in multiple Challengers — tournaments used to gain ATP points — in the past and is currently ranked 1,858th in the world. He hasn’t won a match since last October, but he hasn’t played poorly by any means either. In his most recent match, a clay court decision against No. 434 PetruAlexandru Luncanu, Nevolo had to retire in the third set after splitting the first two. The potential Nevolo has is as good as any former Illini despite standing a modest 5-foot-10 — small compared to many professionals. What will ultimately determine his success on the next level is his serve. All the top players in the world use it — not only to pick up easy points but to still put themselves in a spot to win a point if they don’t pick up a quick ace. “His serve — it’s not a liability — it’s just not as much of a weapon as it needs to be for him to win at the next level,” Dancer said. “From a footwork and balance and speed and racket play and everything else, he can do that. He needs more experience, his serve is gonna have to get better, and he’s gonna have to know

his game really well.” If anybody knows what it takes to transition to the professional circuit, it’s Kevin Anderson. The former Illini is ranked No. 32 in the world and used to play practice sets with Nevolo when he first enrolled at the University. “It would always be really close,” Anderson said. Upon seeing him play during an April 1 visit, Anderson believes Nevolo just needs to learn how he wants to use his serve. “I hit with him almost once a year for the last few years, and I’ve seen big improvements with (his serve) each time,” Anderson said. “It’s more sort of tweaking here and there, fi nding better placement, better consistency, fi nding out how you want to use a serve. ... He’s not gonna have a massive serve just because of his height and stuff, but he can defi nitely have an effective serve, especially if he continues to learn how to use it.” Placing expectations on a young tennis player is unfair to say the least. They’re like horses competing for the Triple Crown: The favorites usually do well, but sometimes flop; and at other times, one will come out of nowhere and steal the spotlight. Anderson falls in the latter category, while former Illini Amer Delic falls into the other. Delic, who won the 2003 NCAA Singles Championship, dealt with injury setbacks after reaching a ranking as high as No. 60 in the world. It will largely be up to Nevolo to determine his fate, as he must continue to grow both physically and mentally.

“If he stays on that path, we can be watching him in the U.S. Open,” Dancer said. “You have to play so hard every point in professional tennis, so you have to get used to playing that physically hard and then not panicking.” *** After the match is over, Dancer, who had been watching and coaching Nevolo for most of the match, goes and congratulates and encourages him. By all means this was a hard-fought match, as the Illini end up defeating the Boilermakers 5-2 overall. Nevolo credits Kovacs for his valiant effort afterward, saying they each played well at certain points despite the heavy winds. The difference came down to Nevolo being more aggressive in the tiebreaker and the end. “I just kinda remembered at All-Americans it was really windy,” Nevolo said. “My focus was just spin the serve as hard as you can. ... Once I kinda simplified my game, I got a lot more calm.” In the end, Nevolo let the home fans see him win for possibly the fi nal time. “So many memories go through your mind while you’re playing,” Nevolo said. “I was happy I was able to buckle down and keep things simple in the end.” “I’ll defi nitely be back,” he added. But there’s still work to be done, starting with the Big Ten Tournament in a week, followed by the NCAA tournament. It won’t be easy, but Nevolo wouldn’t have it any other way.
