Illinois’ McFadden makes marathon history BY CHARLOTTE CARROLL CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The chill in the wind and the prospect of flat tires proved no match for senior Tatyana McFadden as she finished first in Sunday’s ING New York Marathon women’s wheelchair division, achieving an unprecedented Grand Slam of the Boston, London, Chicago and New York marathons in the same year. Setting a personal course record, Illinois’ McFadden won the race in 1 hour, 59 minutes and 13 seconds, finishing nearly four minutes ahead of runner-up Wakako Tsuchida of Japan. Teammate Amanda McGrory, who won the race when it was last held in 2011, finished fourth at 2:05:06. McFadden was hoping to avoid a flat tire Sunday, which plagued her in the 2009 and 2011 races of

the New York Marathon. “I mean, a few times during the race, as I hit a few bumps, I was like: ‘Oh, no, this is going to come again; I’m going to get a flat; this is great,’” McFadden said in a press release. “But I just quickly looked at my tires and saw (the tires) were still rolling and saw they were OK. “Then I just had to stay calm. If I flat, I flat. I have time to change it since I was in the lead.” She added that she always straps on a spare tire. This win is another addition to McFadden’s growing list of athletic accomplishments, which includes a 2010 New York Marathon victory. Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, with spina bifida, a congenital disease that paralyzed her from the waist down, McFadden was adopted by Debbie McFadden in

1994. After coming to the U.S., she dived right into sports, including swimming, basketball and track and has since become an exceptional all-around athlete. A 10-time Paralympics track medalist with three gold medals to her name, McFadden has competed in the Athens, Beijing and London Paralympics games. But it was not until 2009 that she started racing marathons. “It’s taken me a long time to get where I am,” McFadden said. “I didn’t just wake up and this all happened. So it’s just about the training and taking the time and to really develop my muscles and develop the sprint aspect and developing endurance and try to put those together.” The hours of training and dedication have paid off with McFadden becoming the first person — paralyzed or otherwise — to

complete a marathon Grand Slam. Balancing the life of a full-time student at the University with her athletics, McFadden faced fatigue and a rib injury before the Chicago race. In addition, the London marathon was merely six days after the Boston race, while the New York race took place only weeks after Chicago. Nervous that the pain would return, McFadden spent the time in between managing her nutrition and getting plenty of rest. “The training the past couple of weeks were really good, so I felt confident,” McFadden said. “And whatever happened, I told myself on Sunday, I did everything that I could do; just believe in myself and just hit all the strength on the course.”

UI receives grant for soybean project BY STEFFIE DRUCKER STAFF WRITER

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin and the College of ACES announced Friday that the University has received a $25 million federal grant from the U.S. Agency for International Development to increase the food supply in five African countries by improving soybean yields. University agricultural economist Peter Goldsmith will lead the team of universities and nongovernmental research organizations working on this project, officially titled the Feed the Future Innovation Laboratory for Soybean Value Chain Research. Durbin has a special connection to the project, as he helped bring the National Soybean Research Laboratory to the University in the late 1990s and has secured over $5.2 million in funding for soybean research. “These (Morrow) plots and research labs are examples of the University of Illinois’ long tradition of using agricultural research to help farmers in Illinois and across the United


Andrew Wessen, left, guitarist and singer in the band Grouplove, paints a sustainablity mural with University students in the “eco-village” Friday on the Quad as part of the band’s Campus Conciousness Tour to educate students about sustainable solutions.

Grouplove promotes going green BY CLAIRE EVERETT STAFF WRITER

Gripping the microphone, Grouplove guitarist Christian Zucconi’s lime green fingernail polish shone under the stage light. “You guys know what this tour’s about?” he asked the crowd. “It’s about being green.” Hannah Hooper, band vocalist and keyboard player, stood next to him dressed in a full body skeleton suit and chimed in. “This tour is about making a difference,” Hooper said. “Pick up some garbage. Smoke a joint. Make a compost pile.” *** The indie pop band’s concert at Foellinger Auditorium on Fri-

day night was part of the Campus Consciousness Tour. A non-profit group called REVERB organized the tour. This year, it was joined by an organization called the Rainforest Alliance, a group that aims to educate students on college campuses about environment sustainability and get them to take action by submitting a “green idea” to the tour for a chance to win $10,000. Seven hours before the show, members of the band joined students in front of Foellinger to make a sustainability-themed mural in the “eco-village” tents the Rainforest Alliance set up. “It’s been really cool to be part of a cause you really believe in,


even before the tour started,” Zucconi said. He said although lines in their music didn’t directly relate to sustainability, the theme of coming of age and self-discovery was prominent, and environmental change was a part that. “I think people should learn about sustainability and go through their own process of questioning the things around them and what they can do to change the world,” Zucconi said. Bryce Dorn, junior in computer science and ad designer for Star Course — the concert-planning registered student organization that brought Grouplove to campus — said he was happy the band sup-

States and people around the world,” he said. Durbin also said the project is significant for him because he’s visited Africa so many times throughout his Congressional career. “The potential for development and rapid growth always seems so far away for those who haven’t visited,” he said. “But those of us who have been there know better.” Currently, 38 percent of the population of Ethiopia lives below the poverty line. Fortyfour percent of Ethiopian children under the age of 5 are failing to grow, in part due to lack of proper nutrition. However, in the past 10 years, six of the fastest growing economies in the world have been in Africa, and Durbin sees a new middle class rising. “This is a continent that’s in real evolution,” he said. “We need to make sure that middle class of tomorrow is well-fed, well-educated and well-prepared to lead the world.” This is the first USAID-supported soybean research program, Goldsmith said.

Illinois Student Senate possibly breeches Open Meetings Act with private Facebook group BY MEGAN JONES STAFF WRITER

The Illinois Student Senate’s private Facebook group may have breached the Illinois Open Meetings Act as select members, who met quorum, took part in discussions online. Jenny Baldwin, vice president-internal, said discussions occurred without executive board oversight, and Timmy Knudsen, former vice presidentexternal, said many of the discussions were typical of those found in any other RSO’s Facebook group. According to 2010 research by the Student Press Law Center, there are few guidelines to predict whether student government meetings would be required to

abide by the Open Meetings Act. However, in the Illinois Student Senate constitution, the senate is required to follow all provisions of the act, in accordance with their long term goals of transparency and inclusiveness. “We are glad The Daily Illini brought this matter to the senate’s immediate attention. The Senate will move to open the group for public comment at Wednesday’s meeting under President (Damani) Bolden’s leadership,” said Carey Ash, student senator as well as law and doctoral student. “This way, our fellow Illini will be able to constantly communicate with their elected leaders, any place, any time.” A senator created the group






following spring elections, but some staff and executive board members, including the director of communications, were not included. During Knudsen’s resignation at Wednesday’s ISS meeting, he mentioned how he felt like an outsider when he was contacted by senators with concerns regarding the Facebook group. He said that on the Facebook page, senators had shelled groups of constituents out from receiving information, even including the name of one of these constituents. Knudsen said a majority of senators are great student leaders who are there for the right reasons, but some need to focus on their roles and rethink why they ran for senate.

“Some people view it as a very political body, yet we are a school. We have the ability to make little impacts that can help students greatly, and I just want them to focus on that as opposed to positioning themselves for a larger role later,” Knudsen said. “It’s really the politics of it that flogs a few students from having a positive impact on the University.” Baldwin said the Facebook group was started with “innocent” intentions in mind and is similar to groups other RSOs would create. She said it was a way for all other ISS members to interact more with each other on Facebook because the only other time they see each other is at meetings. “However, we are obviously a

Within the OMA, “meeting” means any gathering, whether in person or by video or audio conference, telephone calls, or electronic communications such as instant messages or electronic mail.

voice and an image of the student body,” Knudsen said. “The Facebook group is a hiccup in trying to work toward complete transparency.” Former student senator Mark Rosenstein, graduate student, said this type of behavior from the senate does not surprise him

and that many were using the group to criticize former senators. Rosenstein was involved in Caucus, an ad-hoc group within the senate that was not quite “official,” where senators were strong advocates in questioning the stu-











The Illinois Open Meetings Act requires that whenever a public body meets quorum, which members of the Facebook group did, they are required to provide documents such as minutes and pre-meeting agendas. In the senate’s constitution under Article 7: Meetings of the Illinois Student Senate, Item D, it is stated: “Illinois Student Senate should follow all provisions of the Illinois Open

Mahomet Aquifer aims to gain Sole Source status BY ANGELICA LAVITO STAFF WRITER

The Mahomet Aquifer Protection Alliance held an event Saturday to update community members on efforts to address potential groundwater contamination. An aquifer is an underground layer of materials such as sand or fractured rock where water can be extracted from using a well. The Mahomet Aquifer supplies clean water to 14 counties in Illinois, including Champaign County. The event focused on a coalition of agencies’ attempts to obtain sole source designation for the aquifer in response to Clinton Landfill, Inc.’s installation of a

chemical-waste landfill above it. Sole Source designation protects an area’s groundwater resource by requiring the Environmental Protection Agency to review certain proposed projects within the designated area, according to the EPA’s website. Champaign County and the University are members of the coalition. The coalition hired the firm Layne Hydro to study and submit the application for Sole Source designation. The application was submitted in December and is currently under review. “I firmly believe that (the Mahomet Aquifer) qualifies under the definition,” said Allen Weh-

rmann, project consultant for Layne Hydro. “Whether or not it should be (designated as a Sole Source) is a question for the public and the EPA.” The Layne Hydro report concludes that although “there are potential alternative sources of water to the Mahomet Aquifer for some communities and public water suppliers, there are no economically feasible alternative sources.” Approximately 100 community members attended the event, which featured speakers including Illinois senators Michael Frerichs, D-52, and Chapin Rose, R-Mahomet. “I thought it was just a ter-

rific event,” said Steve Carter, retired city manager and member of the Protection Alliance. “It was very successful. It was a new venture for the group ... we had a great turnout with pretty broad representation.” Because the region is dependent on the Mahomet Aquifer, local governments do not want to risk potential contamination, Carter said. Clinton Landfill Inc. could not be reached for comment by press time; however, according to their website, the waste that will be put in the landfill will be handled appropriately through contact with state and EPA officials. “It poses a small risk certainly not in my lifetime or even of

the lifetime of the next generation, but down, down the road, who knows,” Wehrmann said. “My feeling is basically, ‘Why put it over the aquifer and entertain any risk at all?’ Let’s put it over some place where it’s not over a major, regional water supply.” Champaign Mayor Don Gerard said some are concerned about unintended consequences, such as companies not wanting to build in the area because of stricter regulations that will come with Sole Source designation. “If you’re going to bring an industry here that could potentially ruin our aquifer — our water supply — then that’s the point of it being sole source,” Gerard said.

Although designating the Mahomet Aquifer as a Sole Source aquifer will protect it from federally-funded projects that could harm the resource, it does not protect it from private projects. Still, Wehrmann thinks this will raise awareness and lead people to be more careful. Carter anticipates the EPA will hold a public forum early next year before they reach a decision about the Mahomet Aquifer’s status. He also said the Mahomet Protection Alliance will consider hosting more events to keep the community updated.

IGB’s Genome Day educates C-U community BY EDWARD GATHERCOAL STAFF WRITER

Exclamations of laughter and excitement bounced off the walls of the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum as children gathered for the Institute for Genomic Biology’s Genome Day on Saturday. More than 480 people attended this year and were assisted by more than 100 volunteers made up mostly of faculty members and graduate students. “As a public land grant university, we recognize that public engagement and outreach is very important,” said Melissa McKillip, director of development and outreach at the institute. Genome Day hosted more than a dozen “adventure stations” to get kids involved in and learn more about various aspects of science including bioenergy, selective breeding, genomes and cell types. Upon completion of each activi-

ty, the children would get a letter stamped into their bright red “Stamp-It Pass” pamphlets that in the end would declare, “I am a genome expert.” One adventure station was titled “Dancing with Plants” and allowed kids to stand in front of a giant green screen and imitate the movements that plants make as they respond to their environment. Another activity exposed kids to DNA extraction. DNA from bananas and strawberries was removed by mushing up the fruit and mixing it with a dish-soap-like solution, which then caused the cells to break open and release everything inside, including the genomic DNA, said station volunteer Thom Mand, graduate student. Mand said he attended events like this as a child and always enjoyed watching “science in action.” He said it was those types of activities that influenced his

decision in wanting to become a scientist and hopes occasions like Genome Day inspire other children to pursue the field as well. This was the event’s second year and McKillip explained next year’s Genome Day is already scheduled for Nov. 1, 2014. Genome Day is going be the institute’s annual fall semester outreach event, McKillip said. She explained that some activities may change, while others are adjusted and some, “the favorites,” will return each year. “I liked all of them,” said Lily Wedig, student at Bottenfield Elementary School. When asked if she would return next year, Wedig nodded with an enthusiastic “yes.” One new activity that took place this year was Reebop, which was hosted by Project NEURON. At this station, children selected traits from cups to build offspring and see what it would look like in

the end. It helped kids learn that although traits come from the parents, ultimately the offspring never looks exactly like the parents, said station volunteer Rob Wallon, graduate student. “There are lots of important advancements in this field that are really important for everyone to know,” said Barbara Hug, clinical associate professor in Education who volunteered with Project NEURON. “And we integrate sciences so everyone can learn these ideas.” While everyone was invited to attend, the primary audience was children in kindergarten through fourth grade. And Nicholas Vasi, director of communications, said there were both English and Spanish-speaking volunteers at each of the 15 activities to reach out to a broader portion of the community. “The main idea was to get some of the information about these

staff and our students and learn about some of the great things that are happening at our university and at IGB.”

“This year, we (did) a lot of the things we normally do and (continued) to build on what has worked for us in the past,” Winters said. “I think the festival has done a great job of growing each year but at the same time staying true to its founding commitments.” These founding commitments include paying homage to the rich tradition of folk music, storytelling and dance in Central Illinois. This year’s festival showcased an assortment of unique genres of music, such as alternative country, bluegrass, blues, ragtime, swing, folk-rock, Irish, Celtic, gypsy jazz and Mexican folk. On Friday night, Los Guapos, a three-piece band from Champaign, played for an engaged crowd at Buvons, located at 203 N. Vine St. in Urbana. This musical group combined rhythmic and melodic elements from

Afro-Cuban, jazz, salsa and dub music to create a distinctive musical sound all their own. Champaign-native Amy Byrum took her daughter Diza to this performance, where she said the pair shared a lovely night of music and dance. “She told me they actually cured her of her shyness. She got up and danced the entire show; we had an awesome time,” Byrum said. Along with a variety of musical acts, the festival also showcased an array of talented storytellers, including world-renowned storyteller Dan Keding. Keding has won numerous awards for his mastery in storytelling, including nine Storytelling World Awards and two Anne Izard Storytelling Choice Awards. Catherine Trofi muk, junior in Education, was one of the attendees at Keding’s performance.

“I really enjoyed the storytelling, and think that the Folk and Roots Festival did an awesome job of getting great talent to come to Champaign-Urbana,” she said. The festival also held educational workshops, which festival-goers could attend to learn different skills such as “reading an audience during storytelling” and “how to play a washboard as a musical instrument.” The C-U Folk and Roots Festival is a community-driven event set up entirely by volunteers. Brenda Koenig said she has been volunteering at the C-U Folk and Roots Festival since it began in 2008. She now serves as chair of the festival’s steering committee. “Attendance has been up from previous years, but what has impressed me the most from this year’s festival was the talent level of musicians we were able

to get,” Koenig said. “We have some crazy-good talent from all across the country, and I’m really glad to see people coming out

and enjoying the work we put in.”

guished in poverty, low agricultural productivity and malnutrition,” he said. Robert Hauser, dean of the College of ACES, is also excited about the work that this team will be doing.

“Fundamental to economic growth ... is a strong agricultural economy,” he said. “Once you have that in place, the rest of the economy can grow.” The goal of the Feed the Future team is to provide suf-

ficient food to the world’s population. According to Feed the Future 2010 Global Food Research Strategy, providing sufficient food to the world’s growing population will require a 70 percent increase of glob-

al agricultural production by 2050 to reduce global poverty and hunger. “ We pride ourselves in being a land grant university with a huge research mission and global impact,” Chancel-

lor Phyllis Wise said. “This is what the world expects of the University of Illinois, and this is what we’re committed to do.”

the organization used the frog as a symbol because it was an indicator of when something was wrong with an ecosystem; when an ecosystem starts to fail, frogs are one of the first species to die off. “We’re trying to encourage stu-

dents to become a part of the sustainability solution by demanding sustainable options on their campuses,” Clark said. “Students are often starting their morning off with a cup of coffee or tea, they may be printing their assign-

ments on paper, and these products can come from sustainable sources.” *** “This tour is about being a good person because good people do good things, and then we can all

hang out together,” Hooper said. “We are right now, there is some group love in this room,” Zucconi added. Three encore songs later, the band linked arms and gave each other a group hug. When they

walked off stage, the lights went up and the Beatles song “All You Need is Love” played through the loudspeakers.

“A lot of senators did not take too kindly to that. Senators have come out and said that former senators should not be on the (ISS) listserv anymore,” Rosenstein said. “So, from the looks

of it, they are more interested in protecting their own personal interest instead of serving their constituents.” Though the senate has made many attempts to rewrite its con-

stitution, he said everything circles “back to this,” and the group should be dissolved and restarted from scratch. “No matter what the leadership is, it circles back to total cha-

os and becomes a ‘gentlemen’s club,’” Rosenstein said. “People form groups and look out for each other’s best interests and when someone comes along and is critical of the establishment, they

don’t take kindly to that and work to their full ability to shut those people out.”

ED I TO R IAL ISS must realign as public, open governmental body

CO MMEN TA RY Quick Commentary delivers bits of relevant and important issues on campus or elsewhere. We write it, rate it and stamp it. When something happens that we are not pleased with: DI Denied. When something happens that we like: Alma Approved.



lthough we would like to assume the Illinois Student Senate operates transparently, some of its recent internal problems suggest otherwise. Last week, ISS Vice President-External Timmy Knudsen resigned, citing the time commitment and his hectic schedule. But signs also point to growing distrust within the organization regarding a secret Facebook group maintained by student senators. Although Knudsen said this wasn’t a factor in his resignation, several members had been trying to work behind Knudsen’s back through the closed group, which The Daily Illini reported Thursday. Worse than the covert nature of the group itself was that senators used it to have discussions in quorum numbers, a violation of the Illinois Open Meetings Act. Essentially, enough ISS senators must be present before a general assembly meeting (which are legally required to be open to the public) can begin. In the past, ISS has failed to meet this quorum requirement. However, on Facebook, enough of the senators participated in the secret group to meet quorum, which means that the group legally must be open for the public to see. But it wasn’t open. Not only must ISS operate openly and transparently because it’s the law, but it must also be public with its discussions so that the student body can hold the organization accountable. ISS receives its budget from student fees, allocating the money how it wishes, and is empowered to be the voice of all students on this campus. As constituents, we should be able to hold them accountable for the senators’ decisions and have access to their deliberations. Student senators are supposed to stand with students they represent, not circumvent them. ISS is not supposed to be an exclusive club — and no senator should have discretion over who can be included in discussions. For a group that should represent the student body, it’s a shame that its members cannot work collectively in a public forum to serve the University community, which voted them in. Among this hullaballoo, another senator, Dominique “Modaddy� Johnson resigned amid growing pressure from ISS. Meanwhile, Johnson’s resignation caused a rift within the student senate when he was caught using another senator’s i>clicker to vote at a meeting last month. Disappointing to us is that senators and factions within ISS see the need to work separately from the rest of the senate. On the one hand, we’re glad to see senators properly resigning to maintain the integrity of ISS. These missteps served only to belittle an institution that is not often seen favorably by students: We’re glad ISS didn’t just let it slip through the cracks. We hope this will be the beginning of a shift of ISS’ focus on to the students. We hope that personal problems within the senate can be separated from its public function and that its operations remain public. We hope this will allow senators to work as a whole and continue benefitting the entire campus, including through the i>clicker rental program, where ISS provides more than 400 students with free i>clickers. We appreciate senators, like Tony Fiorentino, who are working to make the issues and discussions surrounding college affordability more salient within our campus community and to our lawmakers. We hope more members will follow his lead, providing public services — publicly.

It’s that time of year again — the month where we separate the boys from the men. That’s right, everyone, No Shave November is BACK! We greatly look forward to these next few weeks where guys around campus get that little bit of scruff back that most of us go crazy for. The first couple of weeks are pure gold as every participating 20-year-old guy morphs into a rugged 25-year-old man. However, as the month progresses, that beautiful, masculine look peaks, and eventually participants’ faces begin to look more like a Chia Pet as they take on a hobo-like look — but it was all worth it for the initial stages of eye candy. And for the men out there cursed with the smooth baby face and have to miss out on the hairy splendor, we send our deepest condolences.

Cut to food stamp program shows skewed priorities BOSWELL HUTSON Opinions columnist


a measure of cost-cutting last week, the U.S. government decided to allow automatic cuts to take place to an expired 2009 stimulus plan. This, in turn, cut $5 billion from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (otherwise known as SNAP, or more commonly referred to as the food stamp program). SNAP gives a monthly stipend to those who show that they cannot otherwise afford food — mostly low- and no-income individuals. There is an application process and strict standards that one must qualify for, but if they do, they can receive government-aid to buy certain foods. Though it may be hard to believe, the SNAP program is massive. The food stamp program provides aid, in some capacity, to 14 percent of all households in the United States. In the United States, 47 million people depend on them in some way, which to put into perspective, is more than the populations of Colombia, Argentina, Poland or Kenya, to name a few. Though funding was increased during the economic recovery in 2009 to help those in need (a demographic which was rapidly expand-

ing at the time), lawmakers have seemingly decided, as a cost cutting measure, to not renew this increased funding. While this may be an example of what some would call responsible economic austerity, it is more a painful example of a lack of sympathy and a skewing of priorities. At first glance, these cuts don’t seem that deep. People living by themselves who are receiving maximum benefits under the SNAP program will only see a drop of $11 in monthly payments (from $200 to $189), and a family of four will see a drop of $36 in monthly payments (from $668 to $632). When I first read this, I wondered what all the outrage was about. Like most students, there is probably $11 just laying around my room somewhere. I could definitely scrounge it up if I absolutely needed to. It was hard for me to fathom how this could affect someone so greatly and why there was such outrage over it. At an individual level, that $11 (or the $36 that will be cut from the budget for a family of four) can be the difference between whether a child will go to school well-nourished on any given day, and perhaps the difference between buying healthy food or buying cheaper, unhealthier food. Food is something that is so basic to us, especially as University

students, that it is often taken for granted. Part of the reason that these cuts are so disgusting, however, is that they show that the United States, as a nation and as a government, seems to have very warped priorities when it comes to caring for our poor. All of these cuts are coming at the same time where our defense budget is astronomically large. According to data from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, the U.S. spends more on defense than the next 10 countries combined. I’m not advocating for the dissolve of the defense budget, but surely a little reallocation wouldn’t hurt, right? I know having a powerful military is important and I’ve been told that by many international relations professors. But if even a little bit of that money can be given to help those in extreme poverty, or prevent these cuts, why not do it? I understand that cuts need to be made, but why do they need to affect the poorest of Americans? A common argument states that perhaps these cuts are justified because those in extreme poverty provide less to society than someone who has a larger income. Someone who believes this could not be more wrong. Even if someone on food stamps makes less money than you or I don’t deserve to starve for it when

times get tough. Perhaps lawmakers suffer from the same problems that I first did when I tried to understand the cuts. Perhaps they simply cannot realize how much even the smallest of cuts can have an impact to this program. The wishful thinking inside of me wants to believe that this is true, and that further cuts will not take place once we gain more understanding as a country. But there is also the nagging doubt that perhaps even some of those lawmakers subscribe to the belief that it is OK to cut from the poor because they make less money, and thus matter less. If this is true, I must remind them that their job is to legislate for all citizens, not just the ones who have money. Food stamps are not manipulatable; it is not equivalent to giving free money to people, but rather allowing critical access to a resource that is necessary for life. Often, I think we forget to show a little sympathy to those less fortunate, especially as college students, who are contained in a bubble of academic affluence. I would expect seasoned lawmakers to have a better sense of priorities when it comes to dealing with America’s poor.

Missing out on drinking culture not end of the world SEHAR SIDDIQUI Opinions columnist


recognize it is your choice to determine what liquids you ingest. Likewise, I’d expect you not to care what I choose to ingest, either. Which is why I’m going to take this opportunity to call people out on the uproar that occurs when I utter these three special words: “I don’t drink.� Oh my goodness. The cat’s out of the bag. I’ll give you a second to let the gasping, furrowing of brows and disbelief pass. And after I make this statement, without a doubt, there’s the usual onslaught of questions and comments: “I respect that.� “Oh, I get it. Pretending to be drunk is fun.� “So what do you do?� People’s “respect� for the fact that I don’t drink is highly unnecessary. It’s just a random offhand comment that people make because they probably feel awkward and might not know what to say. And frankly, it makes me feel

uncomfortable as well. I am not repressing this deep dark desire to drink alcohol for the greater good. Sure, it is partially influenced by my background, but if I really wanted to drink, I would. When someone tells me they get drunk all the time, I don’t tell them, “Wow, I really don’t respect that,� because I am not automatically assuming that they drink or don’t drink. There’s no reason to comment upon it. It’s just the way it is. It shouldn’t matter so much as to whether you choose to be a part of the alcohol culture. But our campus perpetuates the idea that drinking is the only way to have a good time so much so that people assume that’s what everyone must be doing on the weekends. And people assume if you’re not drinking, then the next best thing would be to still go out and pretend to be drunk. It’s a rather presumptuous and self-absorbed idea that everyone must be doing what you do to have fun. And if you choose not to drink alcohol, you must be trying your hardest to equate your environment to one of people who do drink because there is no other way to amuse yourself around here. I’m not going to sit here and list

off what I do on the weekends for fun. No, I do not sit in the UGL or Grainger and just study. And I’ve never been to Illinites either. The majority of my friends here do drink, but we still hang out on the weekends and manage to have fun. I know it’s a novel idea to be able to laugh and be socially adept without alcohol, but it’s really not that hard. Maybe I’m missing out on something, but the facts tell a different story. Each year, a little under 2000 college students die from unintentional alcohol related injuries, about 700,000 students are assaulted by another student who had been drinking and almost 25 percent of college students cite negative academic consequences linked to drinking. Of course this doesn’t mean if you are drinking you have done any of the above — you could probably avoid each issue if you’re smart about it. However, being in the drinking environment definitely increases your chances of getting hurt, harassed or falling behind in school when compared to a more sober environment. Whether it’s you or the people around you losing their inhibitions, there is a reduced

degree of control,. and it only makes sense that this could potentially lead to trouble. It’s good to know that I’ve never had the unpleasant experience of waking up next to someone I don’t know, unable to remember anything from the night before. I’ll never have to endure a “walk of shame� or puke up my guts because I drank too much that night. I’ll never have to deal with a hangover or random guys I accidentally gave my number to the night before. This is trouble I’ll gladly miss out on. Not participating in our University’s drinking culture really isn’t the end of the world. I’ve had nights where I ran around campus doing crazy things with my friends, probably broke some rules and got told to shut up for being loud way too many times. I’ve made the best of friends, laughed until I had tears in my eyes, ate combinations of food I probably shouldn’t have and danced the night away. Was I ever drunk? Nope, I didn’t need to be.

Falling an hour back for daylight savings time BY ANNABETH CARLSON STAFF WRITER

This weekend marked the end of many things, such as the month of October, Halloween celebrations and midterm mania. One ending that goes along with this is daylight saving time, which concluded Sunday at 2 a.m. English builder William Willett first proposed daylight saving time in 1907 in his pamphlet, “The Waste of Daylight.� In the pamphlet, Willett discussed moving up the time 80 minutes between the months of April and October, so people could enjoy more daylight hours and potentially conserve energy. Willett’s idea was adopted during World War I, first by Germany in 1916 and then by Great Britain and the United States. Both the Allied and Axis Powers were attempting to conserve resources as much as possible. Initially, daylight saving time was seen as disruptive by many in the U.S. and was soon repealed. The practice was put in effect again during World War II. After that, there were no regulations on daylight saving time, so states and cities could practice it how they pleased. However, this made travel to different cities complicated, so in 1966 the Uniform Time Act was passed. This regulated when the practice would begin and end nationwide. If a state, city or town did not want to participate, it filled out an ordinance, according to Professor Eric Snodgrass, director of undergraduate studies in the department of atmospheric science, has studied the history of daylight saving time because it affects weather fore-

casting. Through his research, he has found common misconceptions and little known facts about the practice. “A mispronunciation about daylight saving time is a lot of people like to call it daylight savings time, and there is no ‘s,’� Snodgrass said. Snodgrass also theorized that one reason for Willett’s proposing daylight saving time was because he wanted there to be sunlight remaining so he could golf after work. Additionally, not all states in the U.S. use daylight saving time today. Hawaii, Arizona and territories like Puerto Rico do not participate because they have more consistent daylight during the year. The practice of daylight saving time has many pros and cons. For example, people monitoring the weather use “zulu� time, a 24-hour clock set on the prime meridian. This universal time system does not obey daylight saving time so they must adjust one hour, Snodgrass said. The end of daylight saving time also means that it will be darker outside earlier at night. Catherine Beauboeuf, junior in Engineering, said she does not like how the practice affects her studying habits at the library. “I get tired easily, and it is harder to focus, and I have to walk home in the dark,� Beauboeuf said. Beauboeuf is not the only student who feels this way. “I feel like the day is over (sooner) and no more productivity can happen,� said Andre Eagle, senior in LAS. Similarly, Yuhe Liu, graduate student in ACES, said daylight saving time ending makes him

want to go home early. Despite these problems, Snodgrass argues that daylight saving time should be preserved. “Some studies have been done to see if using daylight saving time has helped with traffic accidents, and what they determined is there is a one to two percent reduction in traffic accidents ... (and) a five percent reduction in car-to-pedestrian traffic accidents,� Snodgrass said. Additionally, by “falling back� an hour, parents will not have to worry about their children standing out at bus stops in the dark, Snodgrass said. Despite differing opinions on daylight saving time, it is a transition, or a new beginning, that people must adjust to each year. And come March 9, the clock will “spring forward� again. As you observe the ending of daylight saving time, here is a scenario from Professor Snodgrass to think about: “Let’s say that a woman was in the hospital, and she was delivering twins this Saturday night. ... (At) 1:58 a.m. on Sunday morning, the first twin arrives. Four minutes later, the second twin arrives. But because of daylight saving time ending, that is now 1:02 a.m. on the same day. When you write it down, you are going to have a kid who was born at 1:58 a.m. ... and then you’re going to have another kid born at what would have been 2:02 a.m. but is now 1:02 a.m. ... (One) is younger, but on paper looks older. ... What happens?� Snodgrass does not have an answer.

Grouplove delivers dynamic performance BY ALEXANDER VASSILIADIS STAFF WRITER

Audience members were left speechless and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tongue Tiedâ&#x20AC;? this past Friday when Grouplove performed at Foellinger Auditorium. This indie rock band visited campus as part of their Campus Consciousness Tour, which runs until Feb. 2. Its ecstatic, high-emotion performance enticed audience members, leading bandmember Christian Zucconi to say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This room is filled with group love!â&#x20AC;? midway through the show. Composed of Hannah Hooper on vocals and keys, Christian Zucconi on vocals and guitar, Sean Gadd on bass, Andrew Wessen on guitar and vocals, and Ryan Rabin on drums, Grouplove is a potent explosion of creative soul and sound. As the group ran onto the stage, Hooper in her full body skeleton suit, the crowd jumped to their feet. The chairs in Foellinger may as well have disappeared, because no one sat again until the end of the show. Within their set list was the track â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itchinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on a Photographâ&#x20AC;? from their debut album, which when combining a hand-clapping beat and Zucconiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hair-raising vocals, was a treasure. The quality of their live performance was as good as their studio recordings, exposing their true talents as a group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itchinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on a Photographâ&#x20AC;? was a good piece to get the audience actively engaged; Hooper entranced the audience so well with her smile as she started to clap to the song that immediately the energy in the room went up tenfold and everyone was clapping.

Zucconiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raw acoustic guitar, along with the dynamic vocals in the song, transformed Foellinger from a lecture hall to a music-crazed venue. In addition to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tongue Tied,â&#x20AC;? the band also played â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ways to Go,â&#x20AC;? one of the songs on their recently released album, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spreading Rumours.â&#x20AC;? Their performance of this piece, which is reminiscent of M83 meets MGMT meets

The Killers, was the climax of the show. The songâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pace rapidly progresses from its beginning to its peak and adds a pinch of psychedelic sound with a synth break; it is a good display of Grouploveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s versatility. Foellinger is not the type of venue one might expect Grouplove to perform in, as the chairs typically make the audience prone to lowenergy responses; yet the group was able to surpass this obstacle and induced dynamic responses from the audience. Although the show was far from sold out, the artists brought their A-game, making it a show worth attending.

Illinois falls to Penn State 24-17 in OT BY STEPHEN BOURBON STAFF WRITER


Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Spencer Harris (80) lays on the ground after Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ryan Keiser (23) celebrates a game-ending interception in overtime of the game at Beaver Stadium in State College, Pa., on Saturday. The Illini lost, 24-17.

Penalties hurt Illini and Penn State BY SEAN HAMMOND SENIOR WRITER

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Overtime is what everyone will remember from Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; loss to Penn State on Saturday, but it was penalties early that got the Illini in a 14-0 hole in the fi rst half. The referees were flag-happy for much of the game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Illinois and Penn State were penalized nine and 11 times, respectively

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but it was the play on the field that dictated the tightly officiated game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a physical football game out there,â&#x20AC;? head coach Tim Beckman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were trying to win, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to win. There were a couple of penalties, silly ones. You wanted to be aggressive and as long as it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too bad of a penalty.â&#x20AC;? Lineman Mike Heitz was penalized for holding on a touch-

down pass on Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first possession. Quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase threw an interception on the next play. With less than two minutes on the clock in the second quarter, the Illini were penalized a 30 second run off for an illegal snap. They were forced to settle for a field goal and a 14-3 deficit. Penalties on defense extended Penn State drives as well. Caleb Day was called for pass

interference on a big Penn State third down and Johnathan Brown was called for a personal foul on another third down in the red zone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That killed us,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Myself included, I had a penalty on the third down in the red zone. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to eliminate those.â&#x20AC;?

Illini secondary learns from Robinson BY SEAN HAMMOND SENIOR WRITER

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Allen Robinson is one of the best wide receivers in the Big Ten, and it showed early against Illinois at Beaver Stadium on Saturday. Robinson caught 11 passes for 165 yards, but the vast majority of them came in the fi rst half. It was Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; adjustments defensively that kept it in the game. Head coach Tim Beckman said it was the players who

were being vocal at halftime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can make calls, but the bottom line is the players making the plays,â&#x20AC;? Beckman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bottom line is that our players made plays today.â&#x20AC;? Cornerbacks Darius Mosely and Jaylen Dunlap, both true freshman, stepped up big for the Illini. Neither of them had good games against Michigan State, but against Robinson and the Nittany Lions, they showed up to play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good player,â&#x20AC;? Mose-

ly said of Robinson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going up against a Big Ten receiver is like going up against some of the receiverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good player, but I feel like I go up against good players in practice as well.â&#x20AC;? Beckman said he could see why Robinson was one of the best receivers in the conference. He thought playing against Robinson made his team better. But getting better doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t negate the pain a loss causes.

And this loss â&#x20AC;&#x201D; more than any other loss in Beckmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenure â&#x20AC;&#x201D; stings because they came so close. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do believe that this will be a learning experience and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get that W,â&#x20AC;? Beckman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to come and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to come this year.â&#x20AC;? The Illini have four more chances to make it happen.

Penn State overtime interception extends Illinois losing streak BY SEAN HAMMOND SENIOR WRITER

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Illini needed a touchdown, and they went for a touchdown, but it was Penn State safety Ryan Keiser who came down with the ball. On Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first play of overtime, trailing the Nittany Lions 24-17, Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase threw the ball up for grabs in the left corner of the end zone. Illini wide receiver Spencer Harris had a chance at it, along with Keiser and Nittany Lions cornerback Adrian Amos.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;That play was coming to me all week and that play worked well in practice,â&#x20AC;? Harris said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The corner came down and read back up â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and came hard up.â&#x20AC;? Harris knew it was going to be a tough pass to catch with two defenders covering him. The ball came down, and Harris and Amos went up. It hit off Harrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fi ngertips and deflected into the waiting arms of Keiser just behind them. That quickly, the game was over, and Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Big Ten losing streak was extended. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just a bad play on my part,â&#x20AC;? Scheelhaase said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as simple as that.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was partially my fault for not putting myself in the right position,â&#x20AC;? Harris added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know it was an interception until I heard the crowd.â&#x20AC;? Harris had been having his best game of the season. He made 10 catches for 81 yards and became the fi rst Illini with 10 or more catches since Josh Ferguson eclipsed the double-digit mark against Louisiana Tech last season. Coach Tim Beckman was proud of the way his receiving

corps stepped up in the absence of the injured Ryan Lankford. It was different being out there without Lankford, and Harris said the team was dedicating this game to him. But after the game, it was the catch Harris didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make that was on his mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bitter sweet? Not at all,â&#x20AC;? Harris said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know how many catches I had but, to be honest, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really care. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the W.â&#x20AC;?

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A week ago, the Illinois football team trailed 14-3 at halftime before folding in the second half on the way to a 42-3 loss against Michigan State. Trailing by the same margin to Penn State on Saturday, the second half took a much different direction that ultimately led to the same result. The Illini (3-5, 0-4 Big Ten) lost 24-17 in overtime to the Nittany Lions (5-3, 2-2) despite holding lead in the final minute of the fourth quarter. On third and 11 from the 15-yard line in overtime, Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenburg found tight end Kyle Carter in the middle of the

field for the go-ahead touchdown after the Illini won the coin toss and elected to play defense first. The Illiniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possession in overtime would last just one play as quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase attempted to hit Spencer Harris on a corner route in the end zone. The ball was deflected into the air and intercepted by Ryan Keiser to seal the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were determined not to let that happen again,â&#x20AC;? linebacker Jonathan Brown said about the second half against the Spartans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were determined to come out the second half and play complete football, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we did.â&#x20AC;?

Rice enters game late, lifts Illinois over Northwood in exhibition win BY JOHNATHAN HETTINGER STAFF WRITER

The difference-maker for the Illinois menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team was the last man off the bench Sunday night. Junior Rayvonte Rice, who started in the first exhibition game against McKendree, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enter the game until there was 8:27 remaining in the first half. He immediately made his presence known, dishing out two assists on his first two possessions, and finished with 16 points in the 83-67 Illini exhibition win. Shortly after Rice went in, Illinois extended its lead to 41-17 with 6:15 remaining. But a 1-for20 shooting slump led to poor defense and a 31-6 Northwood run that allowed the Timberwolves to pull ahead 48-47 with 13:31 left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You cannot tie your defense to whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making shots on offense,â&#x20AC;? head coach John Groce said. Illinois answered with a pair of Bertrand free throws and never trailed again, largely due to 12

points from Rice in the next four Rice and Tate were joined in minutes, including back-to-back double figures by Mike LaTulip, 3â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to bring the crowd to its feet who scored 14, and Joseph Berand extend Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lead to 65-55 trand and Malcolm Hill, who scored 10 apiece. with 8:03 left.

The Timberwolves were led by two players who finished with double-doubles, Wes Wilcox and Will Bowles. Wilcox finished with 25 points and 10 rebounds, while Bowles had 16 points and 10 rebounds. Groce said he scheduled the Timberwolves because he knew their strength and physicality would challenge his team. Illinois narrowly outrebounded the Division-II squad 42-40 and got blocked seven times. Starting big men Nnanna Egwu and Jon Ekey grabbed eight and nine rebounds, respectively, but struggled to stop Wilcox and Bowles.

Illinois defeats Minnesota to earn Big Ten Tournament berth BY LANRE ALABI STAFF WRITER

Illinois soccer (10-7-2, 5-5-1 Big Ten) traveled to Minnesota (11-6-2, 4-5-2) on Thursday with their season on the line. The Big Ten Tournament will be hosted at Illinois Soccer Stadium starting Wednesday, and the team remained determined to participate and not be bystanders. In a brilliant eight-minute turnaround, Illinois scored three goals to defeat the Gophers 3-1 and guarantee a top-six seed vying for the Big Ten trophy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted this senior class

to have more games,â&#x20AC;? head coach Janet Rayfield said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They know every win gives them one more game to play with this class and certainly I think this class is an inspiration.â&#x20AC;? Illinois dominated possession and created more chances than the defense-oriented Minnesota team but was unable to capitalize in the early going. The first half was scoreless, and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until the second half that the deadlock was broken, against the run of play. Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sophomore forward Haley Helverson put her team ahead in

the 53rd minute. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing about a stingy defense like Minnesota is the first one is the most difficult,â&#x20AC;? Rayfield said â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have got to try to break them down with a chink in the armor.â&#x20AC;? It proved difficult to find that chink within a Gophers defense that had conceded 10 goals in 1026 minutes of Big Ten play. It took the Illini 68 minutes but they finally got on the scoreboard through team top scorer Jannelle Flaws. Flaws strike on the breakaway marked a NCAAleading and school record 20th











of the season. After getting the equalizer, the Illini sent more numbers in the attack to find a winner. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gamble was rewarded as the game-winning goal came from freshman defender Casey Conine in the 75th minute. The Leslie, Mich., nativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go-ahead tally was her third goal of the season, and it was followed by an own goal a minute later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you look at soccer games, we talk about the five minutes after a goal is scored,â&#x20AC;? Rayfield said â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of times where multiple goals are

scored because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shift in momentum. They defended well for 65 minutes but to let in a goal, there is that deflation. We wanted to take advantage of that swing in momentum.â&#x20AC;? Illinois now looks ahead to Nov. 6, when the Big Ten Tournament begins in Champaign, and will attempt to make a run for the title. After seeing limited minutes in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game, the team is hoping captain Vanessa DiBernardo will be back to help them in that attempt. While she is a welcome re-addition, Rayfield has highlighted the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

growth in confidence without the midfield maestro playing. The team has compensated for her loss with other players taking more responsibilities, and if they are to stand a chance at the trophy, Illinois will need more of the same. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a lot of hard work,â&#x20AC;? Conine said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need everybody to play their hardest. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready and hungry. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our home turf, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited.â&#x20AC;?

over on downs. Following the turnover, Illinois drove 57 yards on 11 plays before stalling at the Penn State 4-yard line. Forced with a decision of his own, Illinois head coach Beckman also chose to take the gamble. Coming out of a timeout, the Illini lined up in the Maryland I formation, with four tight ends (two in the backfield in front of Josh Ferguson). When Scheelhaase gave a signal, the skill players scattered, each spreading into a wide receiver alignment. From the shotgun, Scheelhaase stared down tight end Jon Davis at the goal line, but ultimately couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t squeeze the ball between the two defenders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re one short on a DB because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a short-yardage goal line package,â&#x20AC;? offensive coordinator Bill Cubit said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You hope one guy wins a battle. Unfortunately, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen.â&#x20AC;? Illinois finished with 411 total yards but the two interceptions and nine penalties for 71 yards kept the Illini off the scoreboard and out of the win column. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously when you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extremely disappointing because they worked so hard,â&#x20AC;? defensive coordinator Tim Banks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting in the work. At some point, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to swing our way.â&#x20AC;?

FOOTBALL could even get settled, but let Illinois back into the game right before halftime. The Orange and Blue drove the length of the field right before half before stalling at the 5-yard line. With the clock ticking down and no timeouts, Scheelhaase frantically called out signals, burning precious seconds. His incomplete pass on the play left 0:00 on the scoreboard, but a roughing-the-passer penalty gave the Illini a second chance and placekicker Taylor Zalewski knocked in a short field goal to put the Illini on the board before the break. Immediately following an Illini touchdown midway through the third quarter that cut the Penn State lead to 14-10, Illinois kept the momentum, this time on the defensive side of the ball. Facing a third and 1 from the Illinois 39, Penn State opted for a quarterback sneak â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which was stuffed for no gain. On the ensuing fourth down play, Penn State handed to Bill Belton (who finished with 201 yards on the day) off left guard. Illini linebacker T.J. Neal was able to grab the shoulder of Belton, slowing his momentum before defensive back Zane Petty finished him off at the line of scrimmage. The officials called for a measurement, but the Nittany Lions were short, turning the ball

Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cross-country places 9th at Big Tens of the season. There were many goals heading into the weekend, one of which was to have a quick start to put each runner in a good position for the middle and end of the meet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The race went out very fast, and I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still not 100 percent prepared for that,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now having been there, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a little bit more accustomed to that kind of race.â&#x20AC;? The Illini also wanted to beat teams that had beaten them earlier in the season. They were able to beat Northwestern, who beat the Illini at the Purdue Invitational, but finished behind Purdue,


Alyssa Schneider led the Illinois womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cross-country team in the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ninthplace finish at the Big Ten Championships on Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal was to be competitive and do better than we did last year,â&#x20AC;? head coach Scott Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We matched what we did last year.â&#x20AC;? The Illini scored 241 points at the 6-kilometer meet, which was held at West Lafayette, Ind. Redshirt sophomore Alyssa Schneider led the team with a 28th-place finish and a time of 21 minutes, 45 seconds. The team had highlighted the meet since the beginning

minutes, 31 seconds. The Bochum, Germany., native received first-team All-Big Ten honors for his efforts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was what you would expect from a championship race,â&#x20AC;? Toepfer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You go out conservative, look around. You find your spot. I felt it was fine until around 6k and then it went from really controlled to just really, really fast. I tried to hold on as best as I could. It was a solid race.â&#x20AC;? Two other Illini finished in the top 30.

Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cross-country finishes 5th BY THOMAS DONLEY

Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Nathan Scheelhaase looks to throw the ball during the game against Penn State at Beaver Stadium in State College, Pa., on Saturday. The Illini lost in overtime, 24-17.


Five years ago, the Illinois menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crosscountry program would have been satisfied with a fifth-place finish at the Big Ten Championships. For the 2013 squad, the hopes were much higher. The Illini were disappointed with their fifth-place finish in the Big Ten Championships in West Lafayette, Ind., on Sunday. They scored 140 points as a team, placing them four points behind fourth-place Minnesota. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was pretty conservative early on and during the course of the race it picked up more and more as most championship races do,â&#x20AC;? Stewart said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were where we needed to be early. We did a good job of putting ourselves into position to respond through the course of the race. We just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t maintain or close any of the gaps that formed in the last third of the race.â&#x20AC;? Senior Jannis Toepfer finished sixth overall to pace Illinois with a time of 24

ly. With the help of four top-10 finishes, Indiana snapped Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s streak of 14 consecutive Big Ten conference championships. Wisconsin freshman Malachy Schrobilgen won the individual title with a time of 24:16. No. 24 Indiana, No. 16 Michigan and No. 7 Wisconsin were the only Big Ten teams ranked inside the top 30 prior to the race. Minnesota and Illinois were ranked Nos. 31 and 32, respectively. While Illinois was disappointed with its finish, there is still a chance for redemption for the team. The Illini will run in the NCAA Midwest Regional in Ames, Iowa, on Nov. 15. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a case where we have to go in and hope we run well because our fitness may not be where it should be,â&#x20AC;? Stewart said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to run. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to go do it.â&#x20AC;?
