No decision on professor’s termination Board of Trustees takes no action toward Louis Wozniak BY BRITTANY GIBSON STAFF WRITER

The University Board of Trustees held a closed-door hearing regarding Professor Louis Wozniak’s future employment status Monday, ultimately taking no action. University spokesman Tom Hardy said a date for the board to render its verdict has not yet been specified. “Any action that the board would take would be taken in public,� he said, but declined further comment. Wozniak has been a professor at the University since 1966 and has had his teaching privileges suspended twice during this time, totaling ten years of suspension. His position as associate professor in the Department of Industrial and Enterprise Systems


TCF receives nearly 25 complaints per $1B of deposits, study finds Bank spokesman: Report misleads on rate of complaints BY MEGAN JONES CONTRIBUTING WRITER

While a quarter of University students hold accounts with TCF Bank, not all are pleased with their banking experiences, according to a national study. A Sept. 17 report published by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group disclosed that TCF Bank customers are most likely to complain to the feds. According to the study, which was submitted to the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 24.9 complaints have been made for every $1 billion of deposits TCF Bank holds , which is the highest rate of complaint for all banks included in the study. TCF is followed by Sovereign Bank, which has 9.1 complaints and Capital One Bank, which has 6.5 complaints per $1 billion. Most of the complaints in the study deal with checking account issues. “Unlike most other banks of comparable size or larger, we derive almost all of our deposits from consumer accounts, making apples-toapples comparisons among banks difficult,� said Geoff Thomas, TCF Bank spokesman. “However, we have always placed the highest priority on properly managing and addressing all complaints from our customers.� University spokesman Tom Hardy said 25 percent of Urbana campus students hold accounts with TCF Bank. The University agreed to an exclusive banking partnership, excluding faculty, with TCF Bank

in 2007 on the Urbana and Chicago campuses, said Peter Newman, senior assistant vice president of Treasury Operations. The contract ends in February 2015. The bank was awarded the contract for factors including free checking accounts for students, provisions for campus bank locations and ATMs as well as prior experience with campus bank partnerships, Newman said in an email. Thomas said TCF has a formal process for promptly responding to all customer complaints, including reviewing each customer’s individual situation and taking corrective action when warranted. He said the bank uses complaint activity to perform ongoing reviews of products and customer service, making changes where necessary. The study shows that TCF Bank responded to more than half of the complaints with offers of money. Students have the option of linking their i-cards to their TCF Bank checking accounts to use as an ATM or debit card. Hardy said this is convenient for students’ financial services. The bank, headquartered in Wayzata, Minn., also provides a donation to the University scholarship fund and maintains nine ATM on campus. However, students are not required to have an account with TCF, Newman said. Of the 25 percent of students on campus who hold TCF checking accounts, student viewpoints vary. “I use TCF Bank because my dad told me to sign up for it during registration, and they gave me a free hoodie,� said Harry Belden, freshman in FAA. “I’ve only used it a couple of times, and I’ve yet to have any

Adolescents with depression, among other factors, may have an increased risk of developing eating disorders, according to research from a University professor. The research was published in a study in the International Journal of Eating Disorders and was authorized by Janet Liechty, assistant professor of Social Work and Medicine, and Meng-Jung Lee, a doctoral student. Liechty and Lee examined how the psychosocial conditions in adolescents effect the risk of developing problematic eating behaviors as young adults. “We wanted to look at whether psychosocial and behavioral risk factors impact disordered eating in young adulthood,� Liechty said. “We know they do in adolescence, but what we want to know is if they persist to be risk factors in disordered behavior in young adulthood.� The researchers used a national data set of adolescents in grades 7-12 in 1994-1996 to examine the psychosocial and behavioral predictors of eating disorder indicators. There were four predictors in total. The two behavioral predictors were dieting

and extreme weight loss behaviors, such as purging, using laxatives and using diet pills to lose weight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to find out whether these kids started to use those dangerous unhealthy weight loss behaviors that would predict later behaviors,â&#x20AC;? Lee said. The other two psychosocial predictors were depression and body image distortion, which is when a person has an inaccurate perception of his or her body. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One girl actually has a healthy weight, but she thinks she is overweight. We called that an overestimation,â&#x20AC;? Lee said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We use this misconception to predict whether it will be a risk factor.â&#x20AC;? Seven years later, the same adolescents were examined at the ages of 18-26 for several outcomes. Liechty attempted to predict these outcomes using the psychosocial factors in the teenagers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The outcomes we looked at were whether they reported binge eating, whether they reported of ever being diagnosed with an eating disorder and extreme weight loss behaviors,â&#x20AC;? Liechty said. Lee said the study found that those psycho-

social and behavioral factors all contributed to later unhealthy eating behaviors. Among men, early-life dieting persisted into adulthood, and early body image distortion predicted eating disorder diagnosis in adulthood. Among women, early dieting predicted unhealthy extreme weight loss behavior and early extreme weight loss behavior predicted extreme eating disorder diagnosis. Depression, Liechty said, was the biggest and most important of the predictors. It predicted extreme weight loss behavior, eating disorder diagnosis and binge eating in both men and women. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eating disorder diagnoses emerges in young adulthood, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an important time to pay attention,â&#x20AC;? Liechty said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of us have crazy eating habits as adolescents, but when those patterns get fixed and persist overtime, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when they can really wreak havoc on our systems.â&#x20AC;?

Robert Rumbelow, former University director of bands, was charged with two counts of theft control intent that may result in a three-to-seven year sentence, per count, in an Illinois correctional facility. In court Tuesday, Rumbelow was granted permission to return to his home state of Texas before the trial but was denied permission to leave the country. Rumbelow resigned Aug. 22 following a University of Illinois Police Department investigation that concluded that he sold more than $50,000 worth of University instruments and deposited the money in his personal bank accounts. According to a press release from University police, Rumbelow admitted to selling the Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instruments and

said he intended to return the money to the band department. Rumbelow paid the University $86,000 amid his resignation. Inventory lists prepared by Rumbelow in the Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program to trade in old instruments for credit toward new ones were found to have inconsistencies, according to the release. The investigation concluded that 76 instruments, many of which were sold by Rumbelow on eBay and through other contacts, were missing from these lists. Rumbelow and his attorney declined comment. He is scheduled to appear in court for a pretrial hearing Nov. 12.

Study links depression to risk of eating disorders BY JACQUI OGRODNIK

President Robert Easter has recommended the termination of Wozniakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employment at the University after multiple controversial incidents surrounding the professor. Professor Wozniak created a personal website where he cited his own complaints toward the administration.

ing is mentioned. “Obviously, I guess some (people) ... don’t like me, but I know one thing: if everybody likes me, I’m doing something wrong,” he said in a YouTube video on his site. According to the statutes listed on the Board of Trustees website, a six-step process must be followed in order to terminate the employment of a tenured professor. These steps consist of charges, service, request for hearing, notice of hearing, hearing and findings. After findings, the appointee can request a hearing with the Board of Trustees. The board is on the fifth step following Monday’s meeting. The most recent administrative issue began a few years ago when Wozniak retaliated after learning that he had not been granted a teaching award based on student votes. He requested that his students speak with administrators and complain about the results of the award and also shared a student’s grade with others. Wozniak, who called his students his “GKs,” or “grandkids,” has also been accused of attempting to teach a class during his suspension, videotaping students without their written consent and sending an email to his students where he said, “I only remember the names of (grandkids) I’ve had sex with.” He said in the video that the University’s Committee on Academic Freedom and Tenure went over the accusations and found him innocent of 11 of the 12 charges that were brought against him.

DIETING pulsion, and the person will usually deny that anything is going on. King suggested talking to the person first and showing concern for that person in a nonjudgmental way. “It’s a long road to recovery,” she said. “The quicker you get help, the easier it will be to manage the eating disorder. It may start out feeling like you’re in control, but it ends up with the eating disorder taking control of you and your life, so talk to someone as soon as you are noticing that there’s a pattern.” Some signs of an eating disorder include rapid weight loss or gain, not eating in front of other people, refusing to go out to eat, compulsive exercising, sleep disorders, isolation, depression and anxiety. Liechty said teenagers need to be educated about the impact of depression and extreme weight loss behaviors to the body. They need to learn to take care of their body and to treat their body like a friend, she added. “Kids are trying to lose weight, trying to diet, and they are going about it in unsafe ways,” she said. “Not only is it not effective, but it decreases their self-advocacy and actually disrupts their appetite regulation. We’re concerned about that. That warrants education.”

He said the bureau fails to differentiate between banks that primarily hold consumer and commercial

Bousfield Hall honors University’s 1st African-American alumna

New residence hall at Ikenberry pays tribute to ‘courageous pioneer’ with namesake BY EDWARD GATHERCOAL CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The chorus, “The storm is passing over, hallelujah,” echoed beneath a large white tent as a crowd had gathered for Tuesday’s dedication ceremony of the newly constructed Bousfield Hall, named after the first African-American woman to graduate from the University. Maudelle Tanner Brown Bousfield enrolled in the University in 1903 and three years later became the first African-American woman to graduate from the institution. Bousfield received a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and astronomy, with honors. Later, she taught at various schools in East St. Louis, Balti-

more and eventually became the first African-American dean at Wendell Phillips Academy High School, Chicago in 1926. Then in 1931 she became the first African American woman to receive a master’s degree from the University of Chicago. “She was a courageous pioneer,” said Chancellor Phyllis Wise in a speech she made at the ceremony. Bousfield is the second new hall to be built at Ikenberry Commons, with more to come. “I think it’s something to have a new center erected that’s been intentionally named after the first African-American graduate,” said Rory James, director of the Bruce D. Nesbitt African American Cultural Center. “I think that’s some-

thing to be heralded and applauded to our housing and residence life department for moving forward and actually considering using this opportunity to name this after an alumna.” Leonard Evans, Bousfield’s oldest grandson, weighed in. “It’s a great honor to us because it’s a recognition of what an outstanding individual she was,” he said. “There’s a lot of people they could have named this building after, a lot of deserving people, but they picked her. I feel humble.” Evans reflected on the many life lessons Bousfield taught him. “She was a determined person and tenacious. She focused on something and wouldn’t accept less than succeeding in it,” he said.

“She wouldn’t let you say you can’t do it. Her response would be something like, ‘Well, you’re saying you can’t do it and I’m saying you simply haven’t done it yet.’” Evans also mentioned that he gained many insights when his grandmother tutored him in math, insisting that the reason he studied math was “to learn how to think.” Jessica Newman, multicultural advocate for Bousfield Hall and senior in LAS, said she has been influenced by Bousfield and wants to be an educator and leader in life. She also commented on the quality of the residents in the hall. “Most of Bousfield’s residents are leaders on campus ... and

it’s just nice to be a part of that diverse leadership here.” Newman also described how she thought the University has grown from a cultural standpoint since Bousfield was the only African-American on campus from 1903-1905. “We aren’t honoring her today because she was an AfricanAmerican woman, we’re honoring her for showing all of us the impact that a single individual can make with hard work, determination and a good dose of fearlessness,” Wise said. “That’s what we mean when we talk about transformational experiences.”

Obama speaks to UN of diplomatic challenge in Middle East conflict President advocated dialogue with Iran, continued aid in Syrian conflict BY HANNAH ALLAM

UNITED NATIONS — Committing the United States to the Middle East for “the long haul,” President Barack Obama told the United Nations on Tuesday that his priorities in the region are resolving Iran’s contested nuclear program, pursuing a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, and encouraging democratic transitions in Syria and other tumultuous Arab states. Obama’s speech before other world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly focused almost entirely on the Middle East and North Africa, where upheaval has dashed the administration’s plans to ease engagement and pivot to the economic promise of the more stable Asia Pacific region. The president’s remarks, which lasted about 40 minutes, confirmed that the U.S. was willing to test a new diplomatic track with Iran and left the threat of military force on the table should international efforts fail to end the bloodshed in Syria. “There will be times when the breakdown of societies is so great, and the violence against civilians so substantial, that the international community will be called upon to act,” Obama said. “This will require new thinking and some very tough choices.” While speaking sternly on what the U.S. says is Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons, Obama also sounded some more conciliatory notes, supporting the Ira-

nians’ right to access nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, and saying that was encouraged by the gestures of newly elected Iranian President Hasan Rouhani, who was scheduled to speak at the U.N. yesterday afternoon. “I don’t believe this difficult history can be overcome overnight, the suspicion runs too deep,” Obama said. “But I do believe that if we can resolve the issue of Iran’s nuclear program that can serve as a major step down a long road towards a different relationship - one based on mutual interests and mutual respect.” Obama suggested that critics of the Libya intervention were wrong in their highlighting of the far-reaching fallout from that action; he argued that the NATO campaign prevented the worse scenario of civil war had thenleader Moammar Gadhafi stayed in power. Though he emphasized at several points his preference for a diplomatic resolution to Syria, he seemed to be signaling that the military option couldn’t be ruled out to prevent the “worst from occurring.” “Even when America’s core interests are not directly threatened, we stand ready to do our part to prevent mass atrocities,” Obama said. Obama also announced $340 million more in U.S. assistance to refugees and countries affected by the Syrian civil war, bringing the total U.S. commitment to $1.4 billion, most of it in humanitarian and nonlethal aid. But he

President Obama spoke of the difficult history between Iran and the U.S., but mentioned his belief in a resolution to the issue of Iran's nuclear program. stressed that neither money nor military action was a substitute for an enduring resolution to the conflict. To achieve that, Obama said, Iran and Russia would have to stop insisting that Syrian President Bashar Assad remain in power, especially after the conclusions of international weapons inspectors show that his regime was likely behind a deadly chemical weapons attack Aug. 21. “A leader who slaughtered his citizens and gassed children to death cannot regain the legiti-

macy to lead a badly fractured country,” Obama said. “The notion that Syria can return to a pre-war status quo is a fantasy.” Obama also addressed other restive spots in the region. He chided Egypt’s military, which ousted the elected president Mohammed Morsi, for practices such as reinstating sweeping emergency laws that aren’t in line with restoring democracy. He pointedly said the U.S. was withholding some military aid pending signs that Egypt was returning to the path of an “inclu-

sive” democratic state. “Our approach to Egypt reflects a larger point: The United States will at times work with governments that do not meet the highest international expectations, but who work with us on our core interests,” Obama said. “But we will not stop asserting principles that are consistent with our ideals, whether that means opposing the use of violence as a means of suppressing dissent, or supporting the principles embodied in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”

Sixty-one civilians dead after siege of Kenyan mall BY ALAN BOSWELL MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE

NAIROBI, Kenya — Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta declared Tuesday that the bloody siege of a Nairobi shopping mall was finally over, with five terrorists killed and 11 suspects taken prisoner. The Kenyan leader announced that 61 civilians and six soldiers had died during the brazen terrorist attack, the deadliest in the country in 15 years. However, the death toll is expected to rise once investigators pick through the debris of the now-collapsed Westgate shopping complex to search for more bodies. Dozens of people in the mall when the attack began are still unaccounted for. At least 240 people were injured. “The terrorists and civilians are trapped in the debris,” Kenyatta said. “These cowards

will meet justice, as will their accomplices and patrons, wherever they are.” The capture of 11 of the suspected attackers should aid authorities in learning their identities. Al-Qaida’s affiliate in Somalia, alShabab, has claimed responsibility for the attack, calling it retribution for Kenya’s invasion of Somalia, which they believe was an effort to destroy the terrorist organization. But rumors have been flying that at least some of the Nairobi assailants grew up outside Somalia, including in the United States. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said this week that “at least 40 to 50 Somali-Americans” had gone to Somalia to be trained. Others doubt the authenticity of the reports of Westernized attackers, which originated at a time the Kenyan government couldn’t give the exact number of assailants waging terror in the mall.

“Suggestions that British and American nationals were part of the Westgate attackers are to be treated with caution,” Valentina Soria, a security analyst at the defense consultancy IHS Jane’s, said in an email statement. “It is surprising that Kenyan authorities were able to provide rather detailed information on some of the attackers so early in the investigation,” Soria said. The attack drew attention from U.S. and other intelligence agencies. The command center for the Westgate operation was swarmed with a host of American military officials assisting the Kenyan operation, according to two people who visited the center. They agreed to speak only on the condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to talk to a reporter. Israel is thought to have provided advice on the counterterrorism operations as well; the Westgate complex is Israeli-owned.

WASHINGTON — The Senate is expected to take a key vote Wednesday that would smooth the path for an eventual showdown over President Barack Obama’s health care plan, but the midday vote is likely to inflame a raging war within the Republican Party. A group of Republican senators tried to launch an old-fashioned filibuster Tuesday, despite pleas from party leadership to back off. “I intend to speak in support of defunding Obamacare until I am no longer able to stand,” said Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, as he kicked off the effort. Behind him was an army of Senate allies and grassroots conservatives, defying Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and other top Republicans who want to limit debate. They figure the Democratic-run Senate will never agree to strip the health care money. Fight anyway, said conservative interest groups. “This is the ultimate betrayal,” the Senate Conservatives Fund said of the Senate’s top two Republicans, McConnell and John Cornyn of Texas. The Club for Growth said it would include the debate vote on its 2014 congressional scorecard. The Senate is considering legislation that the Republican-led House of Representatives passed Friday. It would keep the government running through Dec. 15 while defunding Obamacare.

McConnell countered that the bill is what he and other Republicans want, so why delay? “We’d all be hard-pressed to explain why we were opposed to a bill we were in favor of,” he said. Cruz’s backers argued that Democrats will put the funding back in eventually, a point reiterated by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. “I want to be very, very clear again: The Senate will not pass any bill that defunds or delays Obamacare,” he said Tuesday after a meeting with Senate Democrats. If some agreement on funding isn’t reached by Oct. 1, when the new fiscal year begins, parts of the government will begin shutting down. Essential services and operations, such as national security, would continue. Few on either side of the debate say they want a shutdown, aware that it’s highly unpopular with the public. “I just don’t happen to think filibustering a bill that defunds Obamacare is the best route to defunding Obamacare,” McConnell said. “All it does is shut down the government and keep Obamacare funded. And none of us want that.” But he’s unable to quell an influential chunk of his caucus. Senate Republicans met privately Tuesday, and many urged Cruz to drop his delaying tactics. Cruz, a potential 2016 presidential contender, would not.

he University of Alabama has finally taken a step in the right direction â&#x20AC;&#x201D; decades too late. Earlier this month, the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campus newspaper, The Crimson White, published an article addressing allegations that at least two black women were not offered bids to join any of the 16 Panhellenic sororities â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which have been traditionally white â&#x20AC;&#x201D; because of their skin color. One of the women who was rejected from the sororities was described as being the perfect candidate for any sorority â&#x20AC;&#x201D; high GPA, salutatorian of her graduating high school class and came from an influential family with ties to the university. According to the article, alumnae who play a part in the recruitment process for a number of sororities were a major factor in the decision to not accept the two women. Although some sorority members came out in support of accepting the black student, alumnae reportedly threatened to cut financial support if the house accepted a black girl. Leaders and members from these sororities â&#x20AC;&#x201D; such as Alpha Gamma Delta alumna Karen Keene and director of UA Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Chancellorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events Emily Jamison â&#x20AC;&#x201D; shot back by either denying the allegations or defending their actions, and reiterated that the sororities do not discriminate based upon race. But Alabamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president, Judy Bonner, later affirmed that discrimination played a part in the recruitment process. Bonner took an unprecedented step by reopening the recruitment process, in which the sororities would now offer bids on a rolling basis to create diversity within these organizations. Seventy-two new bids were issued, 11 of them to black students, where four have already accepted their bids. We are faced with the question of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why now?â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt racism and discrimination are still prevalent in America, but it is especially concerning that a well-known state university has waited until 2013 to take steps to eliminate racial segregation in an institution as large as the Greek system. While the alumnae and leaders who were involved in the discrimination should be held responsible, the university administration should also be held responsible. There was clearly a problem within the Greek system, and administrators waited until there was a published article in the student newspaper before taking action. However, despite the ugliness of the situation, something great came from it. Barring the fact that these black women were finally given the same opportunities as their white peers, many students of all skin colors and races came out in support of ending the discrimination. In fact, hundreds of students protested on the UA campus carrying banners that read â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last stand in the schoolhouse door,â&#x20AC;? a reference from when former Gov. George Wallace protested racial integration in schools in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to know that there are hundreds of students who are willing to stand up for what is right and fight for social equality. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just about a couple women at the University of Alabama who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a bid from sororities. This is about the racism that has plagued this countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past and still continues to exist decades after racial discrimination became illegal, and decades after schools became desegregated. This issue that arose at this one university should act as a lesson to all who are still discriminating or discriminated against. When surrounded by people who will fight to erase something that should have never existed in our country, change will happen. Hopefully this will create a chain reaction that will spark the process of finally recognizing the problem of racism and working to finally eliminate it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in all of our institutions.

For nearly four days, rampant and consistent gunfire rocked the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya. Yesterday, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta announced that the Kenyan Defence Force gained back control of the mall after militants with ties to terrorist groups al-Shabab and al-Qaeda held hostages and killed nearly 60 civilians. But the events that unfolded in Kenya very much tie back in to our own country: Kenyan and American forces cooperate to restrict Islamist militants, at least a few American citizens are allegedly tied to the attack and al-Shabab is partly composed of young Somali-Americans from the Midwest. We give our prayers, blessings and wishes to Kenya today.

$/0$$33529(' Pope Francis, yeah, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chill with us. Last week, the pope addressed the Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obsession with issues such as abortion, homosexuality and contraception. Now, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get us wrong, Pope Francis didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say the Church would reconsider these doctrines, but rather that they should be treated equally among other sins. Well, this is great news. Because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all just walking, breathing sins. Take gluttony, for example: Want a drink? Approved. Want three or eight? Eh, I guess. Want to get drunk?

Let us clarify, this is not a filibuster, but just the cherry on top of the 42 attempts Republicans have made to repeal Obamacare. Cruz, you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Wendy Davis.

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re journalists: Free time is just a rumor. But when it comes to a well-intentioned serial killer-gone-rogue-gone-father -gone-whatever-other-plot-twist-that-doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t-make-senseuntil-the-last-episode, we have to pay attention. The series finale of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dexterâ&#x20AC;? went a bit like this (SPOILERS): Sister dies, son is left with some rando in Argentina, Dexter died, NO HEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S A LUMBERJACK NOW, the end. Sounds like pretty much every other season finale weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen, but you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kill off a serial killer. That would just be counterproductive.

Why so serious? Futures donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hinge upon job fairs KATE CULLEN Opinions columnist


ast week, the campus was aflutter with undergraduates running around in black suits and kitten heels. The place: ARC. The occasion: the almighty Business Career Fair. Not only did the career fair foster new relationships between prospective employers and students, but a new record was set for the most sock buns milling around in one location â&#x20AC;&#x201D; win. Over a three-day period, 236 companies graced our campus with their presence, and students had the opportunity to test the waters of the job market by talking to employers about internships and entrylevel positions. Big names like Abercrombie & Fitch, Deloitte, Kraft and Macyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s were all present and had lines of students crowded around their tables just to get the chance to hand over their most prized possession, their resume. I attended the career fair with the hope that there might be something for the lowly English major, but alas most employers were preoccupied with the

number-crunching students, and my resume barely got a second look. However, it did provide for some excellent people watching and entertainment as everyone seemed to take it much too seriously. When I walked into the ARC, the nerves were palpable. I could see the beads of sweat beginning to form around the temples of many students as they stood anxiously in line fidgeting with their resumes and shifting their weight back and forth between feet. Right, switch, left, switch. Many students paced along the side of the gymnasium reading over the research of their most coveted companies, ensuring that they would say the right thing. And while I too was a part of all of this excitement, I felt somehow removed from it all. Probably because my future was not hanging in the balance among custom labeled golf shirts and free pens. I stood there as an outsider looking in with my liberal arts education written all over my face. And everyone could tell I had no idea what a â&#x20AC;&#x153;technical research analystâ&#x20AC;? was, but maybe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s both a blessing and a curse because no one else seemed to be aware of how laughable the intensity in the room was. As far as I could tell, no one

was able to step back from the commotion and put the career fair into perspective. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what we have to do in these types of situations. We must realize that no grade or job will complete our lives and guarantee happiness. This is not meant to diminish the efforts of those seeking a job in any way because most of us graduating in the spring will be thrust into the job search both willingly and unwillingly. But we must understand that a career fair will not be the culmination of our lives, and if it is, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry for you. Though it may be the culmination of three years of hard work, having a near meltdown while standing in line to register for the fair is probably not the best response. This fear, this overwhelming panic that was so evident at the career fair has to be channeled into confidence. It was clear that so many students were so preoccupied with rattling off the different elements of their resume that they forgot to look up and see that they were talking to a person. Just a regular person who has as much responsibility to impress students as students do to impress them. Everyone suffers from insecurities and moments of panic, but we have to take those

moments in stride and be able to laugh at how ridiculous it all is. I had my own terrified moment when I was standing in line for a company I did not know, for a position I admit I did not know much about. As I stood there, trying to get a sense of it all, another student came up behind me and asked if I knew what the position was and what my major was. Horrified he would laugh at my liberal arts major at a business career fair, I quickly blurted out â&#x20AC;&#x153;accountingâ&#x20AC;? and left the line immediately. As I hurriedly walked away, I realized that there was really nothing to be scared of at all and that if I had just embraced that moment of anxiety, maybe I would have learned something. Though the suits and kitten heels have been carefully laid back in their closets for now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure they will resurface as rounds of interviews take place over the course of the upcoming months. Hopefully by then the nerves have subsided and the perspectives are securely in place so that when you walk outside and a frat star yells from a Jeep passing by, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you get a job?â&#x20AC;? You can respond, unequivocally, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes!â&#x20AC;?

American vices at center of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Breaking Badâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; addiction MAX FISHER Opinions columnist


very Sunday night, I feel very left out and lonely. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m filled with questions, but all I receive are loud hushes and angry stares. Confused and forced into silence, I sit and watch some angry white guy run a meth empire, manipulate his family and deal with a fatal illness. If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t guessed already, I am talking about the extremely popular television drama â&#x20AC;&#x153;Breaking Bad.â&#x20AC;? This Emmy Award-winning show created by Vince Gilligan has been expanding its viewer base and popularity since its debut in 2008. Something about Walter Whiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fight to make the most of what little he has left in life has enticed audiences to keep watching over its five-season span. Currently, I have only made it partly through the first season, and so far, so good. But I was curious as to why this show is so popular, especially considering its extreme nature.

A high school chemistry teacher gets diagnosed with stage 3A lung cancer and does not have the monetary means to pay for the treatment, so he starts selling the purest crystal meth with an exstudent, Jesse Pinkman. How does one transform from a lower-middle-class chemistry teacher to a crystal meth kingpin? It is these two opposites that add to the complex characterization of Walter White. Not to mention that White carries out some very abnormal actions, like when he ruthlessly stares his former partner Jesse in the face and tells him that he watched Jesseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girlfriend overdose and die even though he could have saved her. Some students here at the University have been fans from the beginning. When asked what kept him coming back to the AMC network every week for more â&#x20AC;&#x153;Breaking Bad,â&#x20AC;? LAS freshman Tommy Koelzer said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because once you start, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop.â&#x20AC;? This addictive nature draws a perfect irony to one of the main themes of the show. Just as the addicts get addicted to Walterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pure methamphetamine, students here on campus become addicted to the myriad plot twists like when

Hank, Walterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother-in-law and a Drug Enforcement Administration agent, is assassinated, even after Walter pleads for his life to be spared. However, when asked if the drug culture that is exposed on the show is a major part of why Koelzer watches the show, he said that it is not so much the drugs as it is the criminal aspects of the show. This really isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprising. In the real world, meth use is not increasing in popularity, with the number of meth users in sharp decline over the past decade. Nevertheless, the interest in all the criminal activity on the show is not that surprising, either. Consider the fact that the very crime-based game â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grand Theft Auto Vâ&#x20AC;? sold a record number of copies on the first day of its release just last week. Crime and violence grab the attention of Americans everywhere, so a show with both obviously garners a lot of attention here in the United States. If â&#x20AC;&#x153;Breaking Badâ&#x20AC;? was set in a different country, like the United Kingdom, you would probably be surprised to know that the show would most likely end right after the pilot. Walter White would walk into the doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and receive

the terrible news of his illness, but then he would plan out his free treatment because of the universal health care that is in place in England. The show simply would not be as popular as its American cousin because the plot line would no longer be as relatable. Either way, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Breaking Badâ&#x20AC;? has clearly become an entertainment spectacle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Breaking Badâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? popularity parallels that of past shows like â&#x20AC;&#x153;M*A*S*H,â&#x20AC;? which garnered the same social involvement because of the stark contrasts it drew between the Korean War and the tragedies of the Vietnam War, from which America was still recovering. When the series finale of â&#x20AC;&#x153;M*A*S*Hâ&#x20AC;? aired, 45 percent of Americans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; about every other person â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sat down in front their television and watched â&#x20AC;&#x153;Goodbye, Farewell and Amen.â&#x20AC;? Will â&#x20AC;&#x153;Breaking Badâ&#x20AC;? break that record? Well, regardless, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Breaking Badâ&#x20AC;? has truly entered the social atmosphere of America, as well as the proverbial television Hall of Fame.

Challenge yourself to spread smiles with acts of kindness SAHER KHAN Staff Writer


eing greeted with a smile, having the door held open for you or having someone pick up your bill are all little things that can turn someone’s day around. Kindness can be taken in so many different forms, and almost nothing makes people feel better than a random act of kindness from a stranger. That’s why for one week, I made a conscious decision to do nice things for other people. On my mission to perform random acts of kindness, I wasn’t sure how generous I should be. I started off by giving out spare change on Green Street, offering my seat on a crowded bus and giving away my left-over food on the Quad — and found it didn’t take much to feel the effect. “A lot of the research suggests that things that are intrinsically rewarding are what really makes us happy,” said Michael Kraus, assistant professor of psychology. “Fostering relationships, helping other people: this is all rewarding because doing good is something that we value.” Krause said that a lot of literature exists on happiness and things that make people happy, such as the book “Happy Money” by Elizabeth Dunn and Mike Norton. “There’s reason to believe, based on science, that giving makes you feel good, and maybe that’s the best reason to give,” he said. I found the most rewarding acts were the ones that were more personal. After putting coins in meters for unseen recipients, I ventured over to the McDonald’s drive-thru and paid for the person’s meal in the car behind me. I was surprised when the McDonald’s drive-thru cashier was not phased by my request and said someone else had done it before. As I pulled up to the next window, I looked back and watched the reaction of the people behind me. Initial confusion was soon replaced with genuine glee as they were


HOME calling for me and my wife.” Edwards said his love of cooking started early in life. Ever since he was about 15 or 16-yearsold, hanging out in the kitchen with “Mama,” he knew he wanted to be a chef. But after a motorcycle accident left doctors questioning whether he’d be able to walk again, he feared his culinary career was over. “I’d been to culinary arts school and graduated, but since I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t be a chef,” he said. “So I said I’ll become a CPA (certified public accountant); I could do that in a wheelchair.” He received a bookkeeping degree, but his passion for cooking overcame the hardships he faced due to the accident, and once he was able to walk again, he decided to go back to developing his culinary skills. “I just told them I was gonna do it one way or the other,” he said. “Told them they were liars, and I was gonna walk.” Edwards said learning from others in his field became essential, and he spent a few months in Florida, Colorado, California and other states to acquire knowledge from a variety of chefs. “If you go to chef school, it teaches you basic knowledge out of a book,” he said. “It’s like trying to learn how to swim where there’s no water. You can read all the books you wanna read, but until you get in the water, you don’t know how to swim.

smiling, laughing and yelling “thank you” out their window. That is all I needed to feel good. Krause explained that a study was done to demonstrate the effects giving had on happiness. The research, conducted by Dunn, Norton and Lara Aknin, explored the benefits of spending money on others versus yourself. “If I give you $20 and say you can keep that money or spend it on someone else, and I call you and ask you what you did with it and how happy you are now, you would be happier if you spent it on someone else,” Krause said of the study. Varshini Kumar, junior in Business, said she can relate to this study. “During my senior year of high school, I did something called a ‘Happy Fund,’ where I spent $10 a month on someone else,” Kumar said. “I strayed away from being nice to my friends because that’s not what it’s about. There’s more impact in showing kindness to a complete stranger.” Kumar is the president of a new RSO on campus called Random Acts of Kindness, a chapter of a nationwide organization. RAK, as the University’s chapter likes to call it, caters to people on campus and promotes kindness, which they believe in turn promotes happiness. “We go to such a big school, and people forget about the small things sometimes,” Kumar said. “This serves as a reminder that any little act of kindness can make someone smile or make someone’s day.” RAK aims to raise awareness for things like suicide rates in college and wants to counter this by being a fun movement that serves to brighten people’s days. “I have a quote up in my room that says, ‘One day you’ll look back on all the little things and realize those were the big things,’ and I think that is really true,” Kumar said. “Someone let me cut them in line for Starbucks the other day, and it literally made my whole week. Things like that you remember. The person doing them might not think it is a big deal, but to the person on the receiving end, it might mean the world.” Krause said that passing on

kindness is a very real concept. If someone does something nice for you, you’re going to want to do something nice for someone else. “The biggest thing that happens when you do something nice for another person is that (it) increases and builds trust between you and that person,” Krause said. “Trust is hugely important for society and relationships. If you don’t trust people at school, you won’t ask for help in times of need, (and) you’ll be cut off from other people. ... It helps us not have to deal with things alone.” Kumar said that the mission statement for the national Random Acts of Kindness Organization is to inspire others to pass on kindness, and she and Krause both agree that you don’t have to do grandiose gestures to positively affect others. “As long as you see it as helping someone, you’re promoting the intrinsic value of the acts,” Krause said. “You’re doing something that’s helpful, and that’s rewarding because being helpful is moral, right (and) rewarding.” Kumar said that the best way to promote kindness is by challenging ourselves to do it daily. “Take the time to challenge yourself and do five nice things for people during the day and see how it changes your outlook on life,” Kumar said. “Sooner or later, the kindness challenge becomes your life.” My week of doing random acts of kindness quickly turned into two weeks and now is something I make an effort to incorporate every day. I took a lot away from the experience. I realized that kindness and happiness go hand in hand. Doing little things to make other people happy will, in turn, make me happy. It did not matter that the people I did nice things for had no clue who I was. What I realized is that doing good does not have to result in being thanked for your actions. It’s a selfless act. Putting a smile on someone else’s face is rewarding enough.

It’s exactly the same way with a chef.” Edwards learned 19 different sauce recipes from a chef in Colorado. He learned how to make crepes, flounder and escargot from a German chef and all there was to know about seafood from a chef in Florida. It was while he worked as the executive chef for a seafood restaurant in Florida, Edwards met Shirley. “Thirty-three years it’s been,” he said. “She’s a blessing, an angel.” T he restaura nt where Edwards originally worked was close to filing bankruptcy, and he was hired to “straighten the place out.” He was able to help out the restaurant, and soon he found that he needed more hands in the kitchen. Shirley responded to an advertisement in the paper, and Edwards said it was the answer to his prayers. “I was praying to God every day, ‘Send me somebody who could take care of me,’” he said. “And the good Lord gave me her. And I’ve been thankful ever since.” Shirley said she accepted the job offer at a time in her life when she was down on her luck. She had just ended an abusive relationship with her ex-husband, and the people who took her in were not treating her nicely. “Jerry helped me learn things that I did not know,” she said. “I was in a shell, and he broke that shell. People used to talk me down and tell me I was stupid, so I believed it. He took me out of that shell. Now I stand up for myself, before I never did.”

In 33 years, Shirley and Edwards claim they have never had an argument. Though they don’t have any children together, between them they have eight children, 23 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. In four months, Edwards will be 70 years old. But he doesn’t plan on retiring any time soon. “When I retire, you’ll find me dead on that orange mat over there,” he said, as he pointed to an orange mat underneath the stove in the kitchen. “If the good lord gets me out of bed and gets me here, I’ll work. Because I have fun with these guys.” This year, Edwards received an email from a 2002 alumnus whose wife had just given birth to a daughter. In Edwards’ private room, there are two walls full of emails and other artifacts that the men of the fraternity have sent him over the years. “We all love Jerry,” Feinberg said. “It’s great to come down to the kitchen everyday and see such a friendly face.” As rewarding as the work is for Edwards, he said graduation is the hardest part, as he hates seeing the members leave. Edwards believes the work he has put into the house is worth it if he has made an impact on at least one of the members’ lives. “You can’t save everybody, you know what I mean?” he said. “But if you save one from going down the wrong road, the road of destruction, it’s worth it. It’s worth the trip.”

Jerry Edwards serves food and advice to his fraternity BY ALICE SMELYANSKY STAFF WRITER


been 22 years. Twenty-two years of cooking from scratch, creating original recipes, hanging out with his brothers and â&#x20AC;&#x153;shaping the young mindsâ&#x20AC;? of the Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity. For Jerry Edwards, Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity House Chef, driving through 14 stoplights to make it on time to work isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just for the job; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for spending time in his second home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a chef for 52 years,â&#x20AC;? Edwards said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve cooked in fancy, fancy, fancy restaurants. I know the dietary end of it. So just feeding them is only a little bit of it; feeding them to where they stay healthy and giving them a balanced diet, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the other part.â&#x20AC;? Before Edwards and his wife, Shirley, who works alongside him, took jobs at the fraternity house, they owned a little sandwich shop, The Lite Bite, in Mattoon, Ill.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was dying,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not physically, but I was working too hard. So I wanted out.â&#x20AC;? After a purveyor suggested that the couple look into working at fraternity and sorority houses, they negotiated their salaries and signed paperwork to become subcontractors for the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity House. Since then, the couple has driven 23 miles every Monday through Friday from Tuscola, Ill., to make it into the kitchen by 9 a.m. The men who live in the fraternity house sign a contract for 10 meals a week, or two meals per day, but because Edwards cooks all of the meals from scratch, he said he is able to leave enough room in the budget to provide bagels, waffles, cereal and other breakfast items for a third meal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is my family. I am a Lambda Chi member,â&#x20AC;? Edwards said, as he pulled out his initiation card and pointed to his member number in the house: 1735. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am an alumnus of Lambda Chi, these are my brothers, and I gotta take care of them.â&#x20AC;? This is a sentiment that Joey Feinberg, junior in LAS, said he sees in Edwards as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jerry is one of the most passionate people I know,â&#x20AC;? Feinberg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He cares about every

one of us in the house and it shows by the way he acts around us.â&#x20AC;? Edwards sees his role in the kitchen as more than just a chef, but a mentor for the men when they need it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can help them in life. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had guys that come in here and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what they wanted out of life,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And they talk to Shirley and me like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re their parents, and we can kind of help mold their lives.â&#x20AC;? A few years ago, Edwards said he was talking to a member who was failing all of his classes and wanted to quit school. It was the studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s junior year, and he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think he was going anywhere in life. After a conversation with Edwards and his wife, the couple persuaded him to register for summer school, catch up and return to the University for the following year. The next year, the student came back for his senior year and graduated with a diploma from the University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here. Not only to feed them, but to give them parental advice, if they want it,â&#x20AC;? Edwards said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My daughter tells me this is Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

SPORTS Illini receivers improve their game under new guidance



New coach Mike Bellamy has high hopes for 2013 receiving corps BY SEAN HAMMOND SENIOR WRITER



The freshman defenseman netted a hat trick in his debut weekend for the Illini club hockey team, led the squad over SIUE BY SEAN NEUMANN STAFF WRITER

Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: The Daily Illini sports desk sits down Sunday nights and decides which Illinois athlete or coach is our Illini of the Week. Athletes and coaches are evaluated by individual performance and contribution to team success. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a blinding fl ash of light before Cody von Ruedenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes are fi nally able to open. When they do, they open wide, and he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but let a toothless grin form on his face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks,â&#x20AC;? he says, walking over to a chair after a photographer takes another photo. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grateful for every moment. Cody von Rueden lives hockey. When the nearly 21-year-old freshman scored his fi rst collegiate hat trick this weekend during his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 9-2 rout over Southern Illinois, it seemed the game he loved his whole life was fi nally giving back. But to say von Rueden loves the game doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell the whole truth. His choice to play five

years of junior hockey instead of attending college is a testament to the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s importance in his life. A few years ago, von Rueden was at the top of his game, being recruited by NCAA Division-I schools and even showing up on NHL scouting boards. But the young star suffered an injury that left him with a separated shoulder. After that, the defenseman said it was tough to get his reputation back up and get back on recruitersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; radars. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not something von Rueden said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upset about. In fact, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thankful it happened. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here without that injury,â&#x20AC;? von Rueden said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so thankful for all the failures and success Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had that have led me up to this point, because I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happier to be where I am right now with this group of guys and being a part of this institution.â&#x20AC;? With family and friends in attendance last weekend, the defenseman netted three goals and an assist â&#x20AC;&#x201D; two of the goals coming within 16 seconds of

each other and against both Southern Illinois University Edwardsville goaltenders. Von Rueden said it was the play of his teammates that ultimately led to his success last weekend, with their hard work ethic and focus while playing a Cougars team the Illini expected to beat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to play in those games and to keep yourself motivated,â&#x20AC;? von Rueden said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I got that fi rst one, I was feeling really good, but when I got that second one, you could see my teammates wanted it for me. It seemed like they wanted it for me more than I wanted it and when stuff like that happens, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unbelievable.â&#x20AC;? The level of support from Illinois teammates for a freshman is something von Rueden fi nds humbling, but growing up in Chicago, he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a stranger to players in the Illini locker room. Senior winger Eddie Quagliata grew up with von Rueden, playing travel hockey with him during high school on Team Illinois. Although Quagliata said

Honorable mentions

When Mike Bellamy became wide receivers coach at Illinois last spring, someone asked him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are you going to do with the receiving group that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have?â&#x20AC;? Through the fi rst quarter of the season, Bellamy thinks his receiving corps has taken the right steps to eliminate that assessment, or at least started to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our whole thing is to put them in a position to be successful,â&#x20AC;? Bellamy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They all know their roles. If I ask (walk-on) Les Poole what his role is, he says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;To keep them motivated on the sidelines.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? T he I l l i nois passi ng game has been impressive, especially when one considers where it was a year ago, and the receivers have been a huge

part of that success. Qua r terback Natha n Scheelhaase has spread the wealth among his receivers in all three games this season. Thirteen different Illini have at least one reception, with Ryan Lankford and Martize Barr leading the way with 10 apiece. Lankford, who led the team in receiving yards last season, said offensive coordinator Bill Cubitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense has been a big part of the culture change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whenever thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a choice between throwing a five-yard pass or taking a 20-yard gain, coach Cubit always says take the 20,â&#x20AC;? Lankford said. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something the Illini didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do last year: air it out. Under Cubit, Scheelhaase has consistently looked deep. Sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked, and other times it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Steve Hull dropped a pass early in the Illiniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last game against Washington that would surely have gone for a touchdown. Bellamy said the praise following Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; impressive win over Cincinnati may have gotten to

NCAA reneges on strong penalties to Penn St. football BY MIKE DAWSON MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The NCAA will restore the scholarships Penn State lost in the crushing sanctions imposed after the Jerry Sandusky scandal, as the organization recognizes that the university has pushed ahead with â&#x20AC;&#x153;significant momentumâ&#x20AC;? to make sweeping changes to the way it runs. Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football team will see five scholarships added back each year starting in 2014-2015, with the full complement of 85 scholarships set for 2016-2017, NCAA officials said Tuesday in announcing the modification to the sanctions. The NCA Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive committee approved giving back the scholarships after a recommendation from former U.S. Sen. George Mitchell, who was appointed by the NCAA to oversee Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progress in adopting a number of reforms to enhance its security, ethics, governance and compliance structure. Mitchell, who said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been given unfettered access to documentation and employees, praised Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts in the fi rst yearly progress report, which was issued earlier this month. Under the terms of the NCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consent decree, Penn State was required to adopt all of the 119 recommendations in former

word about whether the other sanctions could be included, such as the $60 million fi ne and the erasing of 112 victories from the history books. Penn State leaders were thankful for the NCA Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This news is certainly welcome to our university community, particularly the student athletes who may want to attend Penn State and will now have the means to do so,â&#x20AC;? Penn State President Rodney Erickson said in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we promised throughout this process, we are committed to continuing to improve all of our policies, procedures and actions.â&#x20AC;? Trustees board Chairman Keith Masser commended Erickson and university employees for their work to implement the reforms that led to the NCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions. Coach Bill Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, who briefed trustees in July about a possible request to the NCAA to modify the sanctions, was equally as gratified. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a staff, we are especially pleased for our players, who have proven themselves to be a resilient group of young men who are able to look ahead, focus and overcome adversity,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Penn State has long been known for graduating its student-athletes and providing them with a world-

class education. The scholarship additions will allow us to provide more student-athletes with a tremendous opportunity to earn that degree and play football for Penn State.â&#x20AC;? Erickson applauded the football coach and his program Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The resiliency displayed by those young men, as well as our entire student body, is something of which we are proud,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would also like to thank the literally hundreds of university administrators, faculty, staff and students whose hard work over the past 15 months helped lay the groundwork not only for this action by the NCAA but, even more importantly, for a better Penn State.â&#x20AC;? The NCAA moved to lessen the sanctions before Penn State could follow through on Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal. Mitchell said the decision to recommend the modification was his alone and was based on â&#x20AC;&#x153;observable changes and attitudesâ&#x20AC;? from a year of monitoring the university. Wake Forest University President Nathan Hatch, a member of the NCAA executive committee, said he would support lifting the bowl ban on Penn State if the university continues to make progress. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think what has to happen is for Penn State to continue the

terrific progress it has made to date,â&#x20AC;? Hatch said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Sen. Mitchell will continue to monitor that.â&#x20AC;? The sanctions on Penn State were based on the fi ndings of the Freeh report, which blamed Penn State leaders for covering up child abuse allegations against Sandusky more than a decade ago. The NCAA used the fi ndings in lieu of its own investigation, and Erickson signed a consent decree last summer that authorized the sanctions. Penn State alumni and fans have been critical of university leadership for not standing up against the NCAA when the sanctions came down, but Erickson has said his hands were tied. He has said Penn State would have faced the so-called death penalty, or no football, if the university didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept the sanctions. Mitchell commended Erickson for pushing through with the reforms in the face of alumni anger and even opposition from within the board of trustees. One of the most vocal critics, trustee Anthony Lubrano, has railed against the leadership for signing the consent decree and called the reforms â&#x20AC;&#x153;baby stepsâ&#x20AC;? that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go far enough. Emmert said the reduction of the sanctions against Penn State will not impact the penalties other universities are facing.

An open letter to the NCAA regarding the decision to give back Penn State scholarships JOHNATHAN HETTINGER Staff writer

Dear NCAA, Did you forget something Tuesday? When you originally decided your unprecedented punishment for Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football program, you seemed to grasp the atrocities that happened in State College. You seemed to understand that a university president and a football coach prioritized a game over the health and safety

of young boys. You told Penn State it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t acceptable. By throwing down sanctions that would completely demolish the football program, you told everyone else it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t acceptable. But you seemed to forget that Tuesday when you said you were too harsh and decided to start giving back scholarships early. You decided it was more important to let the Nittany Lions be good at football than to show administrators that football shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be prioritized over the health and safety of young fans. This wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like Penn State

was paying athletes or giving them illegal benefits. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like Penn State had willing girls lined up to make sure recruits had a good time on campus. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the administrators were covering up a few football players smoking pot. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like they let a basketball player have someone else take his SAT, so he could stay on campus for a year before heading off to the NBA. Penn State was willingly ignoring the sexual assault of young, underprivileged, at-risk boys to win football games. The school decided not to report a pedophile to keep playing a

game without any penalties. The saddest part of it is that people are flocking to support you for going back on your word â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a word you handed down with a higher purpose in mind than merely causing a football program to struggle. The Big Ten announced its support for your decision to lessen the penalties just hours after the announcement. University presidents, chancellors, athletic directors and other officials have come out in support of your decision. You succumbed to their peer pressure. NCAA, I realize youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re scared because it seems like your stran-

glehold on college athletics is headed toward an end. You have been called out for taking advantage of athletes. You have been charged with exploiting a monopoly on college sports. You have taken a lot of flak for your handling of various disciplinary situations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; people saying youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too harsh, people saying youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not harsh enough. NCAA president Mark Emmert said Monday that â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lot of changeâ&#x20AC;? is coming to the NCAA. If this is the change, count me out. I understand where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming from. But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t under-

stand how you can forget the little boys who just wanted to look up to the football program, until they were destroyed by it. How can you forget the reason you sent such an emphatic message? These punishments for the football team may not have been popular. But they were justified. And your actions Tuesday undid all of that. Sincerely, Johnathan Hettinger

Fantasy football a game of guessing for owners J.J. WILSON Fantasy doctor


here is only so much we can predict. When it comes to guessing outcomes, we’re all guilty. Sometimes it’s easy to predict, like the Jags losing to the Seahawks. Other times, we’re incredulous that the Giants could ever allow the Panthers to pitch a 38-point shutout against them. We get these gut feelings, and then we choose to either accept or reject them. After a few seasons of average and sloppy writing, it was pretty clear the “Dexter” series finale was going to be about the same. I fought against the idea because I loved the show, but ultimately, it was a disappointment. The truth, though, is that we don’t know everything. I could have guessed Peyton Manning was going to be a rock star quarterback this season. I may have predicted Philip Rivers would let me down each and every time I relied on him. But no matter how much we may try to deny it, we can’t be sure of anything. And that’s not a bad thing, either. Not knowing is part of the fun of fantasy football. When those week-to-week

matchup projects pick me to lose by 20 points and my wide receiver gamble pays out a big W, I’m elated and drawn in by the sheer excitement. It still works the other way, too. Your team can disappoint you next week just as much as it impressed you this week, but that’s a risk we all agree to take as fantasy owners. It’s the thrill of any outcome and all possibility that pulls us in. Owning a fantasy team is similar to having a gambling addiction. You’re playing the odds. You stand to lose more than you can gain. Excessive investment can leave you estranged from your family, friends and girlfriend. The only major difference is there aren’t lasting consequences, which allows you to step back and appreciate the fact that you’re playing a game of chance. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Fantasy football should be about having fun. It’s why I write about it every week, because I love talking about the NFL and doing my best to give advice and analysis. After three weeks of great takes and heartbreaks, here are Week 4’s pickups and drops.

Pickups Brian Hartline (wide receiver, Dolphins, owned in 43.4 percent of ESPN leagues) — The addition of Mike Wallace was expected to stifle Brian

Hartline’s stardom, but Wallace has busted two of three weeks while Hartline has stayed a constant, under-theradar threat at 18 catches for 283 yards and two touchdowns. Miami will be looking to make a statement against the Saints on Monday night, which likely means a pass-heavy performance from Tannehill. Also, Wallace’s last-season resume still earns him the bulk of the defense’s attention, making Hartline a reliable grab when looking to fill a hole in your lineup. Bengals D/ST (98.2 percent) — Minnesota may have been embarrassed by Hoyerled comeback for the Browns, but don’t expect the same from the Bengals. After downing the Packers and snagging two picks from Aaron Rodgers, the Bengals secondary will be looking to abuse Hoyer’s inexperience. That packages well with an improving pass rush, which held Rodgers to 244 yards last week and resulted in four sacks (six on the season). Add in the fact that, well, it’s the Browns, and the Bengals defense looks like a hot choice for Week 4. They’re probably not available, but if they are, grab them. And if you have them, start them.

Drops Eli Manning (quarterback, Giants, 100 percent) — Shut-


Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline catches the ball in the end zone for a touchdown during the third quarter against the Atlanta Falcons at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Fla., on Sunday. out by the Panthers? C’mon, Eli, you can do better than that. You will do better than that. But Kansas City isn’t going to be the place. Manning has thrown eight picks in three weeks and only produced 931 passing yards, but it’s not Manning himself you should be worried about. It’s the 15 sacks the Chiefs have made so far and the Giants’ poor offensive line. Good pass rush is going to make an already-rocky Eli even worse, so keeping him around

isn’t going to do you any good. Montee Ball (running back, Broncos, 95 percent) — For a guy who was hyped in the preseason, Ball has turned out some of the poorest numbers around. In three games, he’s only generated 99 rushing yards, no touchdowns and a measly seven points. Plus, when splitting the carries with Knowshon Moreno (30 points) and Ronnie Hillman (16 points) who both offer more pass protection, it’s hard to expect fre-

quent handoffs. It doesn’t help when you have a legend of a quarterback making pass plays work with everyone and anyone he can. Julius Thomas, Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker, Eric Decker — these are all reasons why you should drop him right now.

Illini volleyball to play at home away from home BY NICHOLAS FORTIN STAFF WRITER

Despite being the home team, the Illini will be playing in an unfamiliar environment Friday night. Illinois volleyball will host Iowa but will play the match at the State Farm Center instead of Huff Hall, the usual site of Illinois home games. The change of location isn’t bothering senior defensive specialist Courtney Abrahamovich, who thinks of the arena as an oversized Huff Hall with a similar atmosphere. “It’s weird. It’s so much bigger, but you still feel like the fans are a part of the experience,” Abrahamovich said. “I would say State Farm Center is almost like you took Huff and expanded it, and that’s how cool the atmosphere is there.” The Illini will hold practice at the State Farm Center on Wednesday and Thursday this week to get accustomed to playing in a bigger venue.

“I know that practicing there (Wednesday) and Thursday will definitely aid us in that,” Abrahamovich said. But like I said, we’ve played in huge gyms before, huge empty gyms, huge full gyms, small empty gyms, we’ve done it all, so I’m pretty confident in us being able to adjust however we need to adjust.” Junior outside hitter Morganne Criswell said one thing that may hinder Illinois is the new sight angles found in the State Farm Center as well as how large it is. “I think it will be different with the depth perception,” Criswell said. “You’ll look up and the ball’s coming down and there’s so much ceiling to look at, and here at Huff it isn’t really as difficult.” Head coach Kevin Hambly said his preparation and coaching strategy will not change because of the venue. The move to the State Farm Center is because the Illini would host an NCAA Regional in the same arena this season, should they

be seeded high enough. Hambly said the match against the Hawkeyes will be a practice run for the support staff before the regional matches. The Illini have played in thencalled Assembly Hall before but not anytime within the last four years. Illinois is 1-1 all time at the arena, having beaten Minnesota in 2009 and lost to Hawaii in 1981. Although nerves may come from elsewhere before the match, Abrahamovich said the team isn’t going to be any more nervous playing in the State Farm Center than it is for any home game. “It’s still volleyball,” Abrahamovich said. “When it comes down to it, we know how to play it, we’ve put the time in and no matter where you pick us up and put us, it’s still going to be volleyball, and we’re still going to be playing whoever we’re playing.”

loyd Mayweather and Jon Jones are the two best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. Mayweather, who mostly boxes in the welterweight division, dominated Canelo Alvarez on Sept. 14 in a unanimous decision victory, unifying the WBA and WBC light middleweight belts. Jones, the UFC light heavyweight champion, won his sixth consecutive title defense, setting a record for his weight class, after escaping a five-round battle with Alexander Gustafsson Saturday. Mayweather is set to earn nearly $100 million for his fight, while Jones reportedly made around $450,000. If you’re wondering who’s winning the battle of viewers between boxing and the UFC, just follow the dollar signs. Boxing is an American pastime. It will always hold that advantage over mixed martial arts and namely the UFC, the premier MMA organization, which debuted only two decades ago. Boxing also boasts the big names such as Manny Pacquiao, Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko and of course “Money” Mayweather. Boxing has the pay-perview market by the throat, with Showtime reeling in a record $150 million from Mayweather’s tilt with Alvarez. And perhaps most importantly, boxing has dominated the Las Vegas scene, where betting and fighting have always gone hand-and-hand. Boxing may be firmly in the lead in the fight game right now, but MMA is the superior sport and people are just starting to realize it. The casual boxing fan, which makes up a large part of its audience, would be hard pressed to name any boxers outside of Mayweather, Pacquiao and the Klitschkos. And even when one of those big names fights, the main event is almost always the only fight people care about. Did you know Danny Garcia defeated Lucas Matthysse in a junior welterweight championship fight before the Mayweather-Alvarez headliner? Didn’t think so. UFC 165 on Saturday packed a punch well before Jones entered the octagon. Brendan Schaub made Matt Mitrione submit via a Brabo choke in the third fight before the main event. The fight

had to be stopped when Mitrione passed out. Mitrione didn’t want to tap, so he was put to sleep. The heavyweight bout didn’t have any title on the line, but it didn’t need to. Half of the belts in boxing are meaningless anyway. I mean, how many belts can one fighter own? I don’t think Mayweather even knows how many belts he has. The UFC has nine weight classes and one title per division. Boxing can learn from that kind of structure. The next matchup put one of those belts on the line when Renan Barao met Eddie Wineland for the interim bantamweight championship. Barao quickly retained his crown after knocking out Wineland with a sensational spinning back-kick in the second round. No, you obviously can’t kick in boxing, and no, the referee didn’t give Wineland 10 seconds to recover, either. Barao pounced on Wineland after he was knocked down. The event was topped off with what might go down as one of the greatest fights in the history of the UFC. Jones, who entered as a huge favorite, found himself in a dogfight with Gustafsson, who became the first fighter to ever take Jones to the mat. The fight was back-andforth and fast-paced throughout. Jones’ spinning back elbow in the fourth round, which is one of the most sensational signature moves in all of sports, was enough to put the judges on his side. The bout wasn’t a one-sided domination, which happens regularly in boxing. Despite being victorious, Jones left the octagon as a blood-splattered, swollen mess. He didn’t throw in the towel, and neither did Gustafsson. UFC 165 wasn’t an anomaly; the UFC consistently puts out cards just like this. There doesn’t need to be some big name to draw you in - even a fight between two guys you’ve never heard of could end up being the most memorable of the night. Many of these cards are also free on FOX, something that has exposed MMA to the public to an even further extent.

The UFC allows more creativity than boxing. There’s only so much originality that could go into punching another guy in the face. MMA creates a space for boxers, kickboxers, wrestlers, judo, muay thai and jiu-jitsu practitioners to flourish. MMA answers the ultimate question of “who would win in a fight between blank and blank?” There are no restrictions against grabbing your opponent or using kicks, knees or elbows. MMA fights are flat out brawls. Some viewers may be turned off by the “no holds barred” notion of MMA, but the repeated strikes to the head in boxing makes it the more dangerous sport. Anyone can fight in the UFC. Just ask Ronda Rousey, who’s sitting atop the women’s poundfor-pound rankings and quickly becoming one of the UFC’s biggest headliners. Or even Matt Hamill, who has carved out a nice career in the UFC despite being deaf. It just doesn’t add up. If the UFC is more creative, provides edgier fights, has a more unified brand and is more diverse, then why is boxing much more profitable? Well first of all, MMA is not even sanctioned in the state of New York, cutting out a major money-making region from the UFC. But more than anything else, the UFC and MMA as a whole are still quite new. In the past 20 years, the UFC has gone from a knockoff WWE brand to a legitimate sport that is getting more and more recognition every day. Boxing may have a larger fanbase than MMA at the moment, but what happens when Mayweather retires for good? Will boxing be able to replace him? The UFC isn’t worried about marketing one fighter or promoting one huge main event. The UFC is only focused on putting on a show and selling its sport. So even if boxing continues to reel in hundreds of millions of dollars, the UFC will continue to surge. It’s just a matter of time.

Boxing may be firmly in the lead in the fight game right now, but MMA is the superior sport and people are just starting to realize it.

Illini soccer ready for Iowa with Wheatley recovered and Flaws on a scoring spree BY ALEX ORTIZ STAFF WRITER

In Friday’s game against Ohio State, freshman goalkeeper Claire Wheatley went down following a corner kick in the closing seconds of regulation. She initially punched out the cross, but the ball was kicked and then headed back into the box. A stampede of players met the ball and Wheatley was hit and shaken up. “It was just a good, hard hit to the shoulder,” Wheatley said. “But the past couple days I’ve been fine. (I’m) just getting over it and I feel good now, 100 percent.”

Wheatley has been improving this season. Head coach Janet Rayfield has praised her play multiple times, as Wheatley has had to make many big saves in recent games. She leads the Big Ten with 42 saves.

Flaws continues goal-scoring success Junior forward Jannelle Flaws scored her ninth goal of the season against Ohio State. She still ranks second in the Big Ten in goals behind Penn State’s Maya Hayes, who has 10 goals. “She continues to do what

she does well and that’s find the back of the net,” Rayfield said. “(Against Ohio State) she got a ball. They gave her a little bit of time and space, and that’s what great goal scorers do, they sense when they’ve got a little time and space.” Flaws is also not afraid to take chances. Her 41 shots are the second most in the Big Ten. No matter from what part of the field she is shooting from, she is a threat. Last Friday’s goal against Ohio State is a perfect example. Flaws was about 25 yards away from a goal just to the right of the half

circle. She shot it toward the left corner and the ball went just past the keeper’s reach. Not many players have the power and accuracy to make goals from those ranges. Flaws said she is feeling good compared with past seasons in which she sustained ACL tears. This season, she can finally get back to worrying about soccer and not her knee. “I’m feeling better,” Flaws said. “Definitely getting more confidence as the season goes on and getting more fit and getting stronger ... and playing with such great teammates, that just

makes it easier.” She is also spearheading a potent Illinois attack. Now that she is healthy, she has been making constant runs and always seems to be in a good position to receive the ball and make a run at goal. Such scoring potential from one player opens up the options for other players, which is part of the reason for the Illini showing so much offensive versatility early on.

Weekend festivities The 2003 Illinois soccer team will be honored during the half-

time of Friday’s game against Iowa, as the team celebrates the 10-year anniversary of Illinois’ first Big Ten Tournament championship. The team will also host its eight-annual SoccerFest on Sunday against Nebraska, which includes a myriad of family friendly games and activities. The first 1,000 fans will receive free pizza. In the past seven seasons, Illinois is 5-1-1 in the games held on SoccerFest.

Illinois hockey to reduce workload on goaltender BY JOEY FIGUEROA CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The Illini hockey team is in it for the long haul this season, and keeping its senior goaltender Nick Clarke healthy and rested may affect its longterm success. Clarke had the luxury of a night off in Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 9-2 victory over Southern IllinoisEdwardsville after shutting out the Cougars in a 6-0 win the night before. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a luxury Clarke might get used to with new backups in the net. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a couple guys on board this year that can take some minutes off of my hands,â&#x20AC;? Clarke said. Clarkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backups are sophomores Joe Olen and Zev Grumet-Morris, who are both

newcomers to the team this year. Olen and Grumet-Morris split net time during Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game and each gave up just one goal in what was an overall dominating performance by the Illini defense. Last season, Clarke played the most minutes of any player in the ACHA on his way to making the All-American second team, but he expects that to change with his new backups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year was an exhausting year for me,â&#x20AC;? Clarke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I played the most minutes in the nation, so to get a couple nights off now and then is going to be a relief, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably going to help us out in the long run.â&#x20AC;? Clarke played a whopping 2,118 minutes last season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 259 minutes more than any other

goaltender in the ACHA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a lot of depth in net this year, more so than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had, so I feel a little more comfortable giving (Clarke) the night off here or there,â&#x20AC;? head coach Nick Fabbrini said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year he played more minutes than anyone else in the country, and lucky for us, that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t detrimental. So this year I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to try lowering the workload a little bit and make sure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in tiptop shape when the end of the year rolls around.â&#x20AC;? Clarke is expected to start against Michigan State on Friday night, as the Illini look to remain undefeated during their homestand.

I see things that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing, things I really harp on and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see as a big issue. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just tiny cues that they can pick up. Presnap alignments and stuff like that.â&#x20AC;? It all goes back to knowing your role; being a mentor is part of Hullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role on this team. Bellamy says that in the offseason, the coaching staff broke down what strengths each receiver has and where each one would fit into the system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have Spencer Harris running the deep ball like Ryan Lankford,â&#x20AC;? Bellamy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We understand what his role is and what his benefits are. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming out to where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re selfless, they know who they are.â&#x20AC;? And this receiving corps is only beginning to understand who they are.

FOOTBALL the receiversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; heads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes you hate to say that these are what you need to grow,â&#x20AC;? Bellamy said of the letdown against Washington. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having such a great week (of practice). They understand that they let something slip through their hands.â&#x20AC;? In Hullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, quite literally. But despite dropping that pass against the Huskies, Hull has been a central piece in turning around the Illini passing attack. Having played defense for three years, Hull knows how the other side of the ball thinks. And he tries to impart that on some of the younger receivers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They probably make fun of me, to be honest,â&#x20AC;? Hull said of the younger guys. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m kind of a perfectionist in a lot of ways.

IOTW Quagliata said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I give him shit about that.â&#x20AC;? Already feeling comfortable and enjoying his first year of college hockey, von Rueden could barely find words to describe what it felt like to get a hat trick Saturday night, but compared the game to a childhood dream. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you get that momentum building during a hat trick, the fans get louder and louder, and I felt like the whole rink was supporting me,â&#x20AC;? von Rueden said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt great.â&#x20AC;? Sitting in the lobby at the Big Pond, the place he now calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;home,â&#x20AC;? von Rueden said he hopes to continue producing the number of points he has recorded throughout his first two weeks here and will continue to pester head coach Nick Fabbrini about getting on the ice for another chance to be a difference maker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to be a guy that can turn games around,â&#x20AC;? von Rueden said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be just an average player.â&#x20AC;?
