Sen. Durbin reintroduces legislation on student loans BY CHRISSY PAWLOWSKI STAFF WRITER

As student loan debt reaches $1 trillion and University students graduate with almost $23,000 on average, Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., reintroduced two new pieces of legislation last month that address the situation. “Too many Americans are carrying around mortgagesized student loan debt that forces them to put off major life decisions like buying a

Urbana’s Market at the Square is using a new webbased management tool that will make it easier for customers of the farmers’ market to find the items they’re shopping for. The site, called, will go live in April and assists in managing vendor applications, tracking payments and mapping booths among other capabilities. With the new system, vendors are able to create profile pages with information about their produce, contact and hours of

State and national immigration-related legislation will benefit illegal immigrants in Champaign-Urbana, local community advocates said. “These people will have the freedom to move about and go about their lives, taking their kids to school and going to work,” said Francisco Baires, community programs director for the University YMCA. “We hear all the time from people in the community what that means to them.” Baires was referring to the nearly 250,000 illegal immigrant drivers in Illinois, who will be able to legally drive after Nov. 27 after legislation signed by Gov. Pat Quinn in January. The law will provide for a temporary license after an illegal immigrant passes a driving test and obtains auto insurance. Baires said he believes this legislation will greatly impact the large number of illegal immigrants in Champaign-Urbana. With the new law in place, he said these immigrants will have a great deal of new freedoms. “Contrary to what the Obama administration has been saying about going after serious criminals in their immigration

It will allow them to type in the name of a produce item and use an interactive map to see where the stand is located at the market. Natalie Kenny Marquez, director of Market at the Square, said many farmers’ markets across the country are using similar managing systems to enhance the market experience for their community.

The proposal, announced by President Barack Obama on Jan. 29, aims to provide immigrants with a clear procedure

to follow to become legal residents. It also tightens border control and severely punishes and discourages businesses from hiring illegal immigrants. It would provide a streamlined process for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants already living in the U.S. to become citizens, and allow immigrants, after achieving legal status, to become U.S. citizens in 5 years.

After failing to meet quorum at their Friday meeting, the Illinois Student Senate will continue discussion of their new constitutional proposal that increases their power to pose referenda questions to the student body. In the proposed constitution, if two-thirds of the student senate approves a referenda question, they will no longer be required to gather student signatures before their referendum appears on the ballot. The current constitution requires student groups and senators to gather 7 percent of the student body’s signatures before their referenda question will appear on the ballot, unless the student senate lowers its threshold to 5 percent with a two-thirds vote. For those students not part of ISS, the proposed constitution will raise the threshold for putting referenda on the ballot from 7 percent to 10 percent of the student body’s signatures. It would also allow the senate to introduce referenda with a simple majority and the signatures of only 3 percent. Vice President-external Jenny Baldwin said she thinks the senators will vote on the constitutional referenda Wednesday. “I think it’s going to make senate a lot more efficient, but I can definitely understand why some senators have problems with it because it’s drastically different than the constitution we have now and it’s going to shift power in ways that people aren’t comfortable with,” she said.

Vice President-internal Shao Guo said this change might be one of the deciding factors in having the constitution passed Wednesday. “It will also encourage more organizations to come and present referendum questions (to the senate),” he said. If two-thirds of the senate endorses the proposed constitution, senators will be required to gather 5 percent of the student body’s signatures before it will appear on the spring election ballot, said Jim Maskeri, undergraduate co-chair of the Commission on Constitutional Reform. The deadline for the referenda questions is Feb. 19. “That clock is ticking, but hopefully we’ll get everything in on time,” he said. Guo said during the constitutional discussion, senators would be welcome to make amendments to the constitution in order to shape it to best suit the senate. He said he would like to see an explicit passage added forbidding slating during the student election, which is the informal grouping of candidates on a common platform. “It alienates every moderate or essentially every minority and it goes against the idea of a truly representative government,” he said. He said the Illinois student government has had issues with slating in the past, citing the proChief Illiniwek versus anti-Chief factions during the early 2000s.

STUDENT LOANS FROM PAGE 1A the 15th highest in the nation. Under the first piece of legislation, the Know Before You Owe Act, colleges would be required to discuss the difference between private and governmental loans with student borrowers before they sign. Schools would be responsible for confirming the student borrower’s enrollment status, cost of tuition and estimated federal aid before any loan is approved. The act also mandates that private lenders provide borrowers with quarterly reports about their balance and interest accrued. Charles Mayfield, associate director of student financial aid, said this bill could be beneficial because it puts schools in the middle of the loan search process, but it may encourage students to borrow more money than they need. Whereas Know Before You Owe is a preventative piece of

legislation, the second act is more reactionary. The Fairness for Struggling Students Act proposes treating private loans equivalent to other types of private debt by allowing graduates to declare bankruptcy,a process which was in effect until 2005 when Congress changed the law. Andrew Flach, spokesman for Rep. Rodney Davis, R-13, said student debt is a priority for Davis. “We must also look at ways to control the skyrocketing increases in tuition costs and to make sure that students can actually find jobs upon graduation so they can pay back their loans,” Flach said. However, Davis believes there are flaws with this act. “Unfortunately, one of the unintended consequences with the bill, as introduced, is that it may make it even more difficult for students to obtain education loans because allowing students to declare bankruptcy will automatically make them a higher risk candidate,” Flach said. Mayfield said the University encourages students to take

Prison assault leaves 3 injured BY DAVID MERCER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHAMPAIGN — Two guards and a chaplain were injured Tuesday in an Illinois prison attack that union officials said involved up to 15 inmates, the latest in a series of violent incidents at the lockup and others in the state. The violence over the past month led to one death last week at Menard Correctional Center, where the most recent assaults also happened. Union officials say the disturbances stem from Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn’s decision to close several prisons around the state to save money, a move they claim has put staffers at overcrowded prisons at greater risk. T he assau lts T uesd ay occurred as about 200 union members marched outside the prison over what they say are

growing threats to their safety. Menard is in the southern Illinois town of Chester, on the Mississippi River and about 70 miles south of St. Louis. One inmate appeared to lure a guard into the attack inside the prison chapel, said Kevin Hirsch, a sergeant at the prison and president of Local 1175 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. He said a chaplain and another guard who tried to help were hurt, too, and that 10 to 15 inmates were put in segregation after the incident. “It was a very violent assault,” Hirsch said. “A wave of inmates attacked them. ... These inmates planned to do some damage. They stomped these staff pretty bad.” The prison was locked down and the injured staff members

were treated at a local hospital and released, Illinois Department of Corrections spokeswoman Stacey Solano said in an emailed statement. Solano didn’t provide further details about the assault. The first guard suffered the worst injury — a cut to the forehead that required stitches, said Henry Bayer, executive director of AFSCME Council 31, in an email. Neither the Department of Corrections nor union officials would identify the staff members involved. An inmate died last Thursday at Menard in what one official described as suspicious circumstances. On Jan. 28, a guard was attacked at the Pontiac Correctional Center in Pontiac in central Illinois and had to undergo facial reconstructive surgery as a result.


SPRINGFIELD — A strict party-line vote Tuesday sent proposed gay-marriage legislation to the Democrat-controlled Illinois Senate floor for the second time in a month. The Executive Committee voted 9-5 in favor of the plan despite Republicans’ concerns that it will force resistant religious organizations to open their parish halls and fellowship centers — if not their sanctuaries — to gays and lesbians seeking marriage ceremonies. Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago, predicts the body’s 40-Democrat majority will find the 30 votes necessary to make Illinois the 10th state to give marital rights to same-sex couples. He wants a Valentine’s Day floor vote next week. “Same-sex couples want to mar-

ry,” sponsoring Sen. Heather Steans said, “for the same reason we all do: For the common respect, commitment to families, the obligation and the benefits that come with marriage.” Steans, also a Democrat from Chicago, shepherded a similar bill to the floor just after New Year’s — in the final days of the last General Assembly — but scuttled a floor vote when she couldn’t count on enough votes. She said a change in the language makes it clear that churches and other houses of worship will not be obligated to solemnize gay unions. But Republicans remain concerned that religious organizations will be sued over shutting their doors to same-sex celebrations. Sen. Dale Righter, through his questioning of the legislation’s supporters, was able to establish that those institutions’ obligations are covered by the state’s


Greek government forces striking seamen back to work BY NICHOLAS PAPHITIS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ATHENS, Greece — For the second time in less than two weeks, the Greek government invoked rarely used emergency laws to order strikers back to work Tuesday — in a move designed to end a seamen’s walkout that has left islands without ferry services and supplies for six days. The decision by conservative Prime Minister Antonis Samaras to declare ferry crews under civil mobilization came after their unions voted to extend the strike until early Friday. Seamen who refuse to comply risk arrest and jail time of up to five years — although a union leader said workers would try to defy the order. Samaras’ three-party coalition government is facing a strong backlash from unions over new austerity policies forced upon it by international creditors, whose bailout loans are shielding debtheavy Greece from bankruptcy. The country’s main unions have called a general strike for Feb. 20. Merchant Marine Minister Costas Mousouroulis said the government did what it could to address seamen’s demands for payment of salaries more than six months in arrears and the signing of collective work contracts with ferry companies. “Unfortunately, arteriosclerotic and petty political views prevailed, not allowing (the end of the strike) so that our islands could regain their only means of

communication with each other and the mainland,” Mousouroulis said. Samaras’ government had previously hinted heavily that it would mobilize the seamen unless they stopped the strike. The rarely-invoked order was also issued last month to end a protracted walkout by Athens underground rail workers. The Merchant Marine Ministry said ferry schedules could resume later Tuesday, depending on how fast strikers are served their mobilization papers. But seamen’s union leader Yiannis Halas urged ferry crews to resist. “(The mobilization) will solve none of our problems,” he told a protest gathering of about 1,500 seamen and supporters in the capital’s port of Piraeus, Greece’s largest. “We ask the crews to stay away from their ships and stay here. Courage and strength to all of us.” The strike has already had an impact on islanders, many of whom rely on the mainland for basic everyday supplies. An island trade and commerce association warned that the seamen’s walkout poses a substantial threat to small businesses in the archipelago, which already face severe pressure due to Greece’s threeyear financial crisis. The Cyclades chamber of commerce said Tuesday that the strike had led to shortages in goods, prevented treatment of serious health cases and even stopped the transportation of dead bodies for burial. “We demand that you understand, and this is no overstatement,

that the limits of what we can bear and tolerate have been exceeded,” a statement said. In a separate statement, the country’s national trade federation warned that the strike had left large numbers of trucks loaded with goods trapped in the country’s main ports. The civil mobilization law, amended in 2007 to deal with “peacetime emergencies,” has now been used ten times since the 1974 collapse of a military dictatorship in Greece — three of those in antiausterity strikes over the past two years. Greece’s biggest labor union, the GSEE, deplored the government’s use of what it called an “extreme, undemocratic measure.” “Instead of trying to find a solution to seamen’s problems and end shipowners’ provocative intransigence, the government is making a show of strength against the wrong people,” a GSEE statement said. Main opposition Radical Left Coalition spokesman Panayiotis Lafazanis said ferry crews were left with no choice but to step up their fight. “You cannot stop workers’ protests by dressing them in army uniforms,” he said. Greek unions have held a wave of protests to protest the harsh austerity measures taken since 2010 to secure vital international rescue loans. The repeated income cuts and tax hikes deepened a recession already in its sixth year, amid soaring unemployment that has left more than 26 percent of the workforce without a job.


but more information is needed on the proposal, which has yet to be introduced as a bill, before exact effects on the community can be determined. “There’s a lot of things that are kind of ambiguous to me right now, which is understandable at this point in the game,” he said. “Depending on what is actually proposed, this could be a great benefit to people all over the country and here at home in Champaign-Urbana, but we’ll just have to wait and see what they hammer out.” Baires, while skeptical about which aspects of the proposal would actually be passed into law, praised the proposal’s focus on employers of illegal immigrants rather than the immigrants alone. “I think often there’s an emphasis on punishing people here but not on people who are benefiting from them being here,” he said. “I’m all for opening up that aspect of it, not just taking it out on people who are coming here for work.”

State senate to consider same-sex marriage bill BY JOHN O’CONNOR

federal loans instead of private loans. “We feel like the benefits that go with the federal loans are better in most cases — almost all cases — than the benefits that go with a private loan,” Robert Lawless, professor of law, said the act may benefit students across the country but would not impact the University because the loans it provides are not considered private as they are distributed using institutional funds. The University gave out $1,777,133 to 1,049 students in long-term loans in fiscal year 2012. Whether or not the acts pass, Mayfield and Flach said students have the responsibility to educate themselves on loans before borrowing. “Obtaining a student loan shouldn’t be as easy as simply signing a piece of paper,” Flach said. “There should be counseling to allow the student and his or her family to weigh their options before making a decision.”

doors to same-sex couples already exists before this bill,” said Christopher Clark, attorney for the Lambda Legal regional office in Chicago. “It exists for purposes of the civil union law, for that matter, and yet we have not seen a run on the courthouse either post-civil union law or in other states that have allowed marriage equality.

said Davis plans to support border control above all else. “Congressman Davis believes that any immigration reform proposal must begin with strengthening our border control,” Flach said. “Unless we can prevent people from entering this country illegally, any attempt to reform our immigration system will fail.” Ricardo Diaz, committee member of the ChampaignUrbana Immigration Forum, a local advocacy group, said Obama’s proposal is necessary. Diaz said an exact number of illegal immigrants living in Champaign-Urbana cannot be recorded, but the large community would be affected if the law is passed. “The effect on local immigrants is one of relief,” he said. “People would be able to come to school, go to work and be able to contribute freely.” Baires agreed that immigrants in Champaign-Urbana would benefit from the changes,

Nothing will ever stop Unofficial


New engineering master’s degree program would benefit students, University



tudents across the University frequently decry the lack of practical-based learning they receive from their classwork. When classes are designed, professors and program directors tend to opt more for theoretical based learning than they do more hands-on, real-world application learning. But the College of Engineering may be seeing it a little differently now. For Monday’s meeting of the Urbana- Champaign Senate, professor Victoria Coverstone, associate dean for graduate and professional programs, submitted a proposal for a new master’s of engineering degree, which would be offered alongside an already existing master’s of science program. The new program would offer students looking for a more class-based learning experience, opposed to the research-focused program currently offered to students. Perhaps the most distinguishing feature between the two engineering degrees offered is the lack of a thesis in the newly proposed program. Traditionally, a masters degree in engineering leads to further research in a doctoral program. That route satisfies the needs of mostly foreign-born students, who obtain over two-thirds of all doctoral engineering degrees awarded by U.S. universities. Last fall, 1,133 students were enrolled in a masters of science program in Engineering and 1624 were enrolled as Ph.D candidates. Half of the masters students and nearly two-thirds of the doctoral students enrolled during that semester were international students. While not all of those international students will return to their home country, many of them will. Those who remain in the United States pursue the degree beyond the bachelors because the job market demands that they be more educated in their respective fields. For those students that simply want more practical experience, the College of Engineering has awarded several non-thesis masters degrees. Because the proposed degree track is meant to streamline the process of awarding non-thesis degrees and better meet the desires of students, the proposal should be pursued ardently. Other top engineering schools like MIT and Cornell offer similar course-based masters programs, so offering the additional degree option could attract more students simply wishing for additional education. This is also the kind of degree that employers will more likely pay for, so they will send their employees here. Employers increasingly need staffs that are well-versed in a world where technology shifts at everincreasing rates. Beyond that, the connection could bolster recruitment opportunities for our already talented Engineering graduates. Developing new degrees like this can be pricey, but so far, the college seems confident that the initial sunk costs can and will be covered by existing funds. So far, the only downside to the degree is that it could limit a student’s ability to advance their studies into a doctoral program if they should wish. That’s simply due to the lack of a thesis and other necessary research skills that most Ph.D. programs require. Those students enrolling in the masters of engineering program will enter it knowing fully well the minor limitation, though. At that, the job-oriented mission of the College of Engineering is the kind of mentality needed for today’s graduates in all majors, and we wish the program success.

Computers as valuable as distracting ADAM HUSKA Opinions columnist


he scene in most of my classes is typical: The row of students in the front with their collage of MacBook Pros, one window open for notes and another for your social networking site of choice. The daring students who can somehow capture an entire lecture using the ancient method of pen and paper. And others who just seem to take their knowledge in by osmosis and always get A’s. There isn’t just an ensemble of ways to take notes and participate in class, but a variety of learning styles too. The University is notorious for its integration of technology into classes and the classroom: Compass 2g, i-clickers, PowerPoints, virtual blackboards, WebAssign and smartPhysics. Teachers and students alike know what I’m talking about. Without a doubt I am pro-technology, whether it’s inside or outside the classroom. Technology advances and we must advance alongside it. The same goes for students, especially when these enhanced learning resources are available to students and teachers of a recognized and competitive university. And although I can attest to students using computers for impractical reasons, there are plenty who use them efficiently. Teachers flaunt their technologic learning tools, but as soon as students wish to do the same, they are considered “distracting” and “not educational.” Distract-

ing is when it takes longer than the length of a teacher’s YouTube video to actually load it. Not educational is when teachers read word-for-word off of a PowerPoint that students already have in front of them. But as a university that praises diversity, I would hope that means it’s included in learning too. The University teachers aren’t strangers to diversity in teaching; they use slideshows and picture models to appease the visual learners and accompany them with a verbal lecture for the auditory learners. As a student watching a teacher use a computer to conduct their entire class, it’s often hard to appreciate when they’re asked to put the same technology their teachers’ are using away. Students have a responsibility to learn, and it’s unfair to not give us the benefit of the doubt. If students miss important lecture slides because they were off-task on their computers, it’s their responsibility to catch back up. And if students can’t answer questions because they were using their computers, it’s their responsibility to face the consequences. At this point in my college career, the classroom is entirely focused on student discussion and participation. While the teacher sets out the infrastructure for the class, it’s only fair that students adjust themselves accordingly and individually. Otherwise, the University is not respecting and meeting the needs of students and their range of learning styles that result in effective classrooms. Students deserve a little bit of

say in the classroom that they are expected to be successful and active participants in. If a classroom that allows computer use has declining effectiveness, it’s unfair to point the problem at technology. It’s unfair to generalize a few students’ computer use habits to an entire classroom and then call it a University problem. If technology were the problem, I don’t think teachers would continue to build their classrooms around it, nor would the University continue to promote it. Needless to say, I respect all of my teachers. They spend their days teaching multiple classes, involved with research projects and meeting students’ needs. Teachers don’t want computers in the classroom because it certainly deals with a level of respect, but it’s also because they want their students to succeed. But as I have found a compromise in taking written notes while using my computer to bring up lengthy articles, I think teachers can compromise with students who can’t keep up with writing notes or who prefer other styles of learning. If teachers ask us to use a computer to access online journals and scholarly readings, to do our calculus homework on WebAssign or to watch a viral lecture on Compass, then students deserve to use those same computers to learn and participate in class. Either end the University technology paradox or fix it — let the grades reflect the student and let the student take responsibility for the grades.

Beyonce owns the Super Bowl TA’LES LOVE Opinions columnist


ootball is not something I’m too fond of, but Super Bowl XLVII will go down as one of the greatest games in Super Bowl history. Annually, over 100 million viewers tune in to watch America’s favorite sporting finale, but we all come for different reasons. Some enjoy the game of football. Others, like me, watch for the entertaining commercials. However, this year was different because we all watched for one reason, and her name is Beyonce. The game itself still proved to have many memorable moments of its own. It was the first time in NFL history that two brothers would face off against each other, as Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh fought to the last minute against little brother and San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh to achieve football’s greatest victory. It was also the final game for Baltimore Ravens superstar Ray Lewis. Lewis spent his entire career playing for the team and many wanted to see him enter the realms of retirement on a high note. And he did — but there was no greater victory than Beyonce’s performance at halftime. Beyonce’s concert — I mean performance — was perhaps more anticipated than the game. My Twitter timeline was filled with people from all over the world counting down to the very moment she would grace the stage. Even Kim Kardashi-

an, something like her sisterin-law, tweeted in excitement, “I heard there was this little football game at the Beyonce concert today.... Is that true? #BeyonceBowl.” Recently under fire for her lipsynced performance at President Obama’s second inauguration, many were eager to see Beyonce redeem herself others were excited for her greatness in general. Beyonce fiercely rocked the stage surrounded by electrifying lights performing a medley of her hits, including “Crazy in Love,” “Baby Boy,” “Love on Top” and “End of Time.” She was then joined by Destiny’s Child band mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams for a brief reunion. The trio performed old hits such as “Independent Women” and “Bootylicious,” and then proceeded to perform Beyonce’s hit “Single Ladies.” Once the mind-blowing halftime show came to an end, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome soon experienced a power outage that caused a game delay for about half an hour. Even if the reports say her performance wasn’t responsible for the outage, we know that she truly shut it down, am I right? Many celebrities were thrilled with her performance, including First lady Michelle Obama who tweeted, “Watching the #SuperBowl with family & friends. @Beyonce was phenomenal! I am so proud of her! –mo.” Along with the rest of her career, Beyonce’s halftime number exemplified why she’s become a legendary figure in American pop culture, solidifying her spot among the greats,

like Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson. She gives her all while on stage and entertains the audience. The Grammy award-winning singer consistently puts out quality music that is relatable, emotional and genuine. Not only does she use her vocal talents to serenade the world, she also uses her skills as a songwriter to reach her audience. She is the whole package: She can sing, dance and act — she was even nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance in “Dreamgirls.” She is one of the few entertainers of our time that can do it all, and she’s always humble. Super Bowl stage crew tweeted that she personally thanked the stage crew and volunteers. Later that evening, when fellow R&B singer Keyshia Cole slammed Michelle Williams for her performance in the event, Beyonce kept it positive by posting on her Tumblr, “What a proud day for African-American Women. Kelly, Michelle, Alicia, Jhud You all are beautiful, talented and showed so much class! It was an honor to perform at the Super Bowl with you phenomenal ladies. Love Beyonce.” Personally, I admire her strong work ethic, grace, poise and class. Her inspirational desire to be the best that she can be sends a positive message to young fans everywhere that anyone can be the best at what they set out to do. Regardless of her competition, she is proof that, as Kevin Durant said, hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.

his has to be some kind of sick joke, right? Either I’m reading this syllabus wrong or this professor is out to dismantle this campus’s most beloved tradition since 1996. And no, this isn’t about the Chief, this isn’t about taking photos with Alma, this isn’t about Three-in-One. This is about my midterm on Unofficial. I like to think that I’m a fairly openminded person, but I’m not going to pretend I’m fine with this. In my entire history here at the University, I’ve never had an exam on a Friday, let alone in a discussion section for an upper-level class. As a professor at this University, he or she full well better know that this tradition happens on the first Friday of March every year. There have been cutesy pop quizzes where you get a full quiz grade for writing your name on a piece of paper — although I’ve passed them all without studying too hard. It’s a shoddy practice I despise nonetheless. There have even been the adorable classroom parties where you get credit for choosing your favorite piece of candy from a bag, which is a form of taking attendance that’s borderline unethical but borderline delicious. I also got credit for those classes. But this is the first time that I’ve had a full-blown, in-your-face, thisgrade-will-decide-the-differencebetween-an-A-and-a-C-in-this-class exam I’ve ever taken on Unofficial. I can concede a bit: When the undergraduate population nearly doubles as visitors pour into Champaign-Urbana for the weekend of straight outdoor boozing, there are going to be some safety concerns. Students have fallen from balconies, several have been injured and countless more have reached blood-alcohol levels beyond what I’d ever want to feel.

Try all you want to stop Unofficial, but it’s not going anywhere: It’s a badge of honor as a student here. Even at that, these shenanigans are not much different than any other weekend at the University. Kids will be kids, and kids at a top party school with the drinking culture to match are going to be really drunk kids. Notice that I haven’t explicitly called it partying, instead opting for declaring it a drinking culture. Unofficial is not a party in the same sense New Orleans’ Mardi Gras isn’t a straight party either — they are traditions and will continue, regardless of what anyone tries to do to stop it. With the way students at this campus think and treat Unofficial, the only way that it will ever be completely shut down is when the culture of this campus lets it go on its own terms. A culture is persistent. Last year, 289 tickets were issued, and of that, two-thirds were issued to non-University students and more than half issued for minor in possession. The year before that, 328 tickets were issued, and 265 the year before that. But the day goes on. More than that, it’s not entirely fair to think University students are being any less responsible on Unofficial than any other day of the year. Considering that year to year, only a third of the tickets issued are to University students — the grand majority of them are given to non-University students who haven’t figured out how to have a good time responsibly. An exam on that day, or any other form of punishment by grades, is not going to stop this. The rules got more stringent on bars, so the parties moved outside and into apartments. Purchasing liquor got a little more difficult, so people buy what they need a little earlier. Tests might be issued, so students will start the day a few hours later, but they will still start. Try all you want to stop Unofficial, but it’s not going anywhere: It’s a badge of honor as a student here. It’s legendary. And the increased police presence, the hurdles put in the way, the tests, the administration and police’s calls for its end make that badge all the more worth it. Anymore, the harder anyone makes it for this day to go on in all of its Irish green glory, the more students are going to want it. You can call it rebellion, but I’ll call it the memory that will persist beyond some test. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still hunker down to study and take the exam. But you only have me for one hour.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thinspirationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; encourages destructive behavior, illness BY ALICE SMELYANSKY STAFF WRITER

Go on Pinterest. Type â&#x20AC;&#x153;thinspirationâ&#x20AC;? into the search bar. Notice the disclaimer above the pins: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eating disorders are not lifestyle choices, they are mental disorders that if left untreated can cause serious health problems or could even be life-threatening. For treatment referrals, information, and support, you can always contact the National Eating Disorders Association Helpline at 1-800-9312237 orâ&#x20AC;? But if one casually browses the website without specifically searching the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;thinspiration,â&#x20AC;? this disclaimer is nowhere to be found. Images of ghoulishly thin women are in plain view â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an abundance of them. Thinspiration is a trend in which individuals post and share images of supermodels or â&#x20AC;&#x153;real girlsâ&#x20AC;? with very thin bodies. Often times these photos are accompanied by quotes promoting restrictive eating behaviors such as, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose weight by talking about it.â&#x20AC;? While simply looking at images will not create an eating disorder, Rachel Storm, assistant director of the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resources Center, sees quite a few problems associated with this growing trend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem is that it feeds into this beauty myth idea that I think is really detrimental to the lives of young girls and women. The myth being that health can be reduced to, weight can be reduced to, size can be reduced to a number,â&#x20AC;? Storm said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say that we look at a person who is thin and that inspires us to be healthy. No, that inspires us to be thin.â&#x20AC;? Storm co-facilitates the Body Image Action Coalition, a group that discusses the many myths perceived about body weight, as well as the impact the media has on body image and how race and gender play a role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not actually accurate to say that there is a magic number or a magic weight that everyone should have,â&#x20AC;? Storm said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those things are dangerous, and I think that thinspiration inspires that sort of thinking.â&#x20AC;?


Wednesday, February 6, 2013

That sort of thinking is the kind that Melanie Marklein, clinical counselor at the counseling center and co-facilitator of the Body Image Action Coalition, can see on a day-to-day basis. According to the Renfrew Center Foundation for Eating Disorders, 25 percent of college-aged women engage in binging and purging as weightmanagement techniques. Of the women that develop anorexia, 20 percent will prematurely die from complications related to their eating disorder, including suicide and heart problems. Many of the students that Marklein works with use online sites as a source of inspiration for their eating disorders. With the advent of social media, an individual with an eating disorder can turn to an entire community of people online for support. However, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often not the right kind of support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When they turn to thinspiration sites, it can reduce the dissonance that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling and help them stay in a state of denial about the severity of their behaviors,â&#x20AC;? Marklein said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps them feel that what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing is OK.â&#x20AC;? Marklein acknowledges that certain individuals are more at risk than others to the effects of browsing â&#x20AC;&#x153;thinspoâ&#x20AC;? sites. Yet, for the people who are already vulnerable, the trend only further internalizes unrealistic goals toward a perceived notion of beauty. Both Marklein and Storm advised that individuals who engage in thinspiration should question the motivation behind it and the impact it has on their lives. Though Chelsea Carlovsky, freshman in FAA, does not follow the trend, she sees how easy it could be to turn to thinspiration websites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You go out to the bars and you see a huge array of people ... thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girls in skimpy clothing and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re rail-thin. Coming here and being exposed to all sorts of people, you might think â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh my god, I want to be like them,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m confident with myself so it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really affect me. But for someone who is more self-conscious with themselves, it could be more of an issue.â&#x20AC;?

As an Illinette, Carlovsky notices girls obsess over their bodies constantly. One girl on her team practices unhealthy eating behaviors, such as refusing to eat whenever the team goes out to dinner. Carlovsky often hears other teammates discuss this girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body, yet they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aware of the eating habits she engages in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the girls that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really know about it, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll constantly compare everyone else to her and say sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so skinny and perfect,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But they just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible for everyone to get like that.â&#x20AC;? As part of an initiative to advocate for positive thinking about body image, Storm and Marklein encourage students to participate in National Eating Disorders Awareness Week. From Feb. 24 to March 2, multiple groups on campus will offer programs on healthy eating, relaxation and loving oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body. Leading up to the week, Dr. Anita Johnston, author of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eating in the Light of the Moon,â&#x20AC;? will speak on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deciphering the Hunger Code: Understanding Food Struggles through Myth, Metaphor, and Storytelling.â&#x20AC;? The event will take place at Lincoln Hall Theater on Feb. 22 at 6 p.m. While Pinterest and Tumblr placed stricter restrictions on their sites from sharing thinspiration last year, a simple search proves the images are still quite accessible. For those wishing to stop the unhealthy cycle of idolizing unrealistic photos, Marklein recommends students to seek support outside of the virtual world. By not looking at the thinspiration sites, Carlovsky can place more emphasis on aspects of her life that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surround her weight and avoid falling into the trap that many dancers often do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always going to be someone else whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prettier and skinnier than you. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a fact of life,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But if you spend your entire life thinking about all the negative things about you, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re never going to get anywhere in life.â&#x20AC;?

Health choices you make today could affect the rest of your life BY CHRISTEN MCGLYNN STAFF WRITER

It is sometimes overlooked or forgotten about, but the environment has a large effect a person. Parents, peers and surroundings can affect the way a person reacts to a situation or how he chooses to maintain his health. Living on campus places students in a unique environment, in which choices are endless, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle becomes more difficult to the average student. With bars on almost every corner and Green Street lined with fast-food restaurants that can deliver at all hours of the night, it can create quite the dilemma for any Illini. Jane Sobczak, sophomore in Business, said that when she moved into her sorority house, the appeal to order in became more prevalent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Living in (a Greek house) made it a lot harder because when one girl decides to get food at night, it becomes really tempting for the rest of us to just cave in,â&#x20AC;? she said. Despite the temptations, Rebecca Roach, professor of food science and human nutrition, said the health of a college student depends on multiple â&#x20AC;&#x153;bad habitâ&#x20AC;? factors, such as regular exercise, eating and sleep. It is necessary

for a student to develop a good support system at the University in order to maintain a regular, healthy schedule, according to Roach. In her opinion, the most detrimental habit the average college student has is irregular eating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their time is compressed and (students) choose to make ill choices by eating at restaurants, but it is necessary to eat whole fruits and vegetables,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are plenty of fruits and vegetables in mess halls, and even though the fried food may look better, you still need those sources of vitamins, even if they come from a can.â&#x20AC;? Choosing the healthier option, however, can be difficult at times â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially when a student is a vegetarian and the environment they live in is often unaccommodating to their dietetic needs. Tess McNulty, vegetarian and sophomore in Media, said her biggest struggle when eating in the dining halls of her dorm was trying to find something healthy that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have meat in it. Although the dining hall offers vegetarian and vegan options, McNulty said she would usually choose pasta or anything with bread because of the limited selection. Roach said it is more difficult for women in the college environ-

ment to maintain a healthy lifestyle because they are more likely to try to decrease caloric intake. Also, the foods individuals choose to eat in their early 20s become the foundation of overall health for the rest of their life. Therefore, it is especially important, Roach said, to remember the environment one lives in when thinking of the necessary vitamins. For example, living in Illinois, vitamin D is not prevalent in a typical diet; therefore, it is necessary to find foods that can accommodate this need. Fish and eggs are examples of options rich in vitamin D. Environment controls how a person lives on an everyday basis; therefore, when living in an environment that is dictated by fast food and bars, it is necessary to remember healthy eating, sleeping and exercise habits. Living away from parents for the first time can create a barrage of decisions for any student, and one should remember how decisions made today can affect the rest of their life. Remember not to let the environment dictate the person, but the person dictate the environment.

Goodwill Hunting â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thriftingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; trend sees popularity rise, but not new fad to all BY HALEY JONES

While thrift shopping has gained recent popularity on the radio, many students adopted thrift store shopping as a lifestyle long before the song hit No. 1. James â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jimmyâ&#x20AC;? Turano, junior in LAS, has been living by the thrift store code since he was a sophomore in high school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went through a really long Abercrombie and Hollister phase, and then this girl broke up with me,â&#x20AC;? Turano said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was done with superficialness of high school, and my parents were sick of buying me clothes too.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when he discovered the genius of buying clothes from thrift stores. Turano likes to shop for both practical clothing items, like flannel button-ups, as well as atypical fashion statements like 5XL PLAY-DOH T-shirts. He was doing this long before the hit song. As Turano put it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mackelmore swagger-jacked me.â&#x20AC;? Noelle Africhâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite finds tend to be sweaters. The sophomore in LAS loves to find a big sweater that is reminiscent of something Bill Cosby would have worn. Africh coined the term â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;goodwill huntingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to describe her thrift shopping experiences. Africh and Turano both find themselves wearing at least one thrift store item for almost every outfit; sometimes their entire look is made of thrift store apparel. Africh has used this hobby to help save her some major cash â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she thinks she saves up to $2,000 a year by not buying expensive or designer clothes. As for Turano, he thinks the motto of thrift store shoppers is â&#x20AC;&#x153;not caring what people think about you, like at all.â&#x20AC;? For him, the whole process almost turns into a fashion show, especially on nights that he goes out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hawaiian shirts are huge, wolf shirts are huge, grandpa/grandma gear is huge, really cool noodies (hoodies without hoods) are huge. If you are trying to dress up, a flannel is cool,â&#x20AC;? Turano said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just being absurd. Finding costumes, finding outfits, dresses, who knows? Whatever goofy item you can find, just roll with it.â&#x20AC;? Sarah Hudson, owner of Dandelion Vintage & Used, sees major benefits in shopping at thrift stores because of their originality in clothing items. The clothes you find at the downtown Champaign thrift store will most likely not be anywhere else, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is something about shopping vintage, where you are the only one in the room who is going to be wearing it,â&#x20AC;? Hudson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of going to a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;coolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; store, spending lots of money, getting dressed up and â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Oh! Walking in the room, there are two other girls or guys wearing that. With vintage, you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to have to worry about that.â&#x20AC;? Africh thinks everyone should give thrift shopping a chance. She had some advice for beginners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be scared of the mess. I think people are turned off by how disorganized thrift stores are or the smell,â&#x20AC;? Afrish said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to have a lot of energy, be into it and have the right mood to find something good.â&#x20AC;? And just like everything in life, there are good days and bad days with thrifting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to realize that some days you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to find as much, and other days you are going to hit the jackpot and find everything you need,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be positive.â&#x20AC;?

Freshman finishes Illinois’ upset of No. 5 Duke with win over No. 23 Saba BY J.J. WILSON STAFF WRITER

Editor’s note: The Daily Illini sports desk sits down Sunday nights and decides which Illinois athlete or coach is our Illini of the Week. Student-athletes and coaches are evaluated by individual performance and contribution to team success.




ared Hiltzik steps up to the white baseline and bounces the tennis ball four times in front of him. A sprain in his ankle aches from the point before. “I need a big serve,” he thinks as he tosses the ball up and swiftly takes his shot. Duke’s Fred Saba stands opposite him and makes his best effort to return; both sides have much to lose. Hiltzik squeaked by in the first set 7-6 (7), but Saba retaliated in the

But as No. 23 Saba knocks the ball back, No. 114 Hiltzik can already see it will fall just outside and that he’s won the match. “As soon as he missed it, it was pretty surreal,” Hiltzik said. “I didn’t really know what to do.” With the match score previously tied at 3-3, all eyes were on Hiltzik, and his victory resulted in an energetic rushing of the court by Illini players, coaches and fans. Duke, the then-No. 5 men’s tennis team in the country, had been handed its first loss of the season — and by a freshman, no less. Despite the high stakes, Hiltzik said he never felt the pressure building on him. If any-

Fans at Assembly Hall have seen worse than Illini


JACK CASSIDY Sports columnist


When Illinois and Indiana square off Thursday night at Assembly Hall in Champaign, a collection of seniors on both teams will figure heavily into the outcome of the game. Indiana seniors Jordan Hulls and Christian Watford stepped into a program in disarray their freshman year but have steadily improved both their own games and their team’s results since. Illinois seniors D.J. Richardson and Brandon Paul arrived in a more favorable situation their freshman year but have experienced less success than their Hoosier counterparts.

2010-2011 2011-2012 Season


































ssembly Hall in Champaign has housed some ugly basketball over the past two years. All the memories have run together into one, big mental eyesore. Bricked shots, turnovers, shot clock ticking down. Dear God, the SHOT CLOCK IS TICKING DOWN... The list goes on. I think it’s fair to call it ugly. I’ve seen enough in my years to know what does and what does not give me headaches. But that doesn’t mean I’m pointing the finger at anyone. I don’t want to dish out blame because, truth be told, if there was a list of “Ugly Champaign Basketball performances since 2011”, my name would be on the top of the list. I’m not being metaphorical or deep or analyzing the role of the fan or anything like that. I literally took the floor at Assembly Hall last season and put on the worst display of basketball these poor people have seen in two years. It happened a little over a year ago on Jan. 22, 2012, when Illinois hosted Wisconsin. In the game, the Illini were pulling their usual punches. They scored a bit, the Badgers scored as well, the game was hard to watch and at halftime, the score was tied. Then I took the floor. I was the lucky fan chosen to take part in the halftime show. I was the entertainment. If you’re a regular at the House of ‘Paign, then you’ve seen the contest before. It’s a free throw competition between one fan and one blindfolded Illini player. The Illinois player had already shot during the team’s last practice and a recorded version of his effort is shown on the video screen while the fan shoots in front of the live crowd and tries to keep up. I needed to make more free throws than the blindfold-

ed Illinois player to win. The prize: $100, I believe for groceries. My competitor: Tyler Griffey. As I walked onto the floor, almost immediately after the two teams trotted off to their locker rooms, all this information was announced. I stood on the free throw line, facing the player entrance and the hoop I was about to shoot at. Under the hoop stood two athletic department workers each holding a basketball — my two rebounders. They were rehearsing the rules of the game with me one last time. “Wait until he counts down, wait until we pass you the ball, wait...” they said, but the voice of the PA announcer drowned them out. Ladies and gentlemen, please turn your attention to the court where we have JACK ... then I tuned him out. First I thought the basket looked pretty close for a Big Ten free throw. Then I just looked around at the orange in the stands. Illinois only had one sell-out last season. I don’t know if it was that game versus Wisconsin, but from my view on the court, there wasn’t even Standing Room Only available. 5...4... The rebounders passed me a ball. 3... I dribbled and tried to look like a skilled basketball player. 2...1...GO! I shot. Good knee bend, good release, good follow through and the ball was headed right where I wanted it to go. It arched over the front of the rim, tapped the back iron, and...rattled out. No good. Twenty-six seconds left. Plenty of time. I took the next pass, looked up and shot again. Off the front of the rim. Next pass, next shot, no good. Then another miss. And another miss. And another. Above me, Tyler Griffey’s performance was being shown, but I couldn’t see it. I didn’t know what was happening. From watching the contest at other times, I knew that the game show buzzer meant the Illinois player was missing his

Indiana’s Victor Oladipo drives toward the basket for a slam dunk during Saturday’s battle of top-5 teams in Bloomington, Ind. Oladipo scored 15 points and the Hoosiers defeated Michigan 81-73 and have since reclaimed the No. 1 ranking.

The big 10 of the


Editor’s note: Big 10 of the Big Ten is a collection of tidbits from around the conference. This weekly feature provides a recap from the previous slate of games and also serves as a preview to the upcoming basketball week.

Indiana’s opus Indiana defeated then-No.1 Michigan on Saturday night to surge back to the No. 1 ranking. Indiana surrendered its No. 1 ranking after losing to Butler on Dec. 15, but has only lost one game since then and reclaimed the top spot.

Oladipo watch The best player in the Big Ten not named Trey Burke had another fine performance against Michigan, but his most memorable play was a missed shot. Running one of many fast breaks, Oladipo was the recipient of a poor lob pass and nearly salvaged it with a onearmed cocked back alley-oop

dunk barely rattled out. Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Ind., might have caved in from the noise if Oladipo connected on the dunk.

Michigan’s freshmen struggles Maybe it was that raucous crowd, but two Michigan freshmen that normally contribute substantially on offense sputtered against Indiana. Glenn Robinson III went 1-for-6 from the field and Nik Stauskas was 3-for-10 from the field and 1-for-5 from 3-point land.

Tom Crean’s crazy week If steamrolling Michigan didn’t provide enough excitement for Tom Crean, he then flew to New Orleans to watch the Super Bowl. His wife, Joani, is the sister of Jim and John Harbaugh, the two coaches whose teams competed for the NFL championship.

In case you missed it Austin Hollins hit a three with 11.6 seconds remaining to lift No. 18 Minnesota to a 62-59 win

over Iowa on Sunday. Minnesota scored the last seven points of the game.

Five teams reach 20 wins Two of the nation’s first five teams to reach 20 wins are from the Big Ten. Michigan reached the milestone after defeating Northwestern last week, and Indiana caught up after defeating the Wolverines in Bloomington.

Putting up numbers Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois and Ohio State are all averaging more than 71 points per game this season. Indiana and Michigan are both ranked in the top 20 nationally, with the Hoosiers sitting at No. 2 with 83.8 points per game.

Where are the stats? While the Big Ten continues to draw praise from the rest of the country and currently has two teams ranked in the top three, there’s not one player from any conference school that’s ranked

in the top five nationally in points, assists, rebounds, steals or blocks.

ESPN the Mag at MichiganOhio State Ohio State traveled to Michigan on Tuesday night in the rematch of one of Michigan’s two losses. Michigan avenged the loss with a 76-74 overtime win. ESPN the Magazine’s crew was on hand for its “One Day, One Game” issue in which the magazine flies in its writers and photographers for a comprehensive breakdown of that one game. The last issue documented the showdown between Alabama and LSU in college football last November.

Game of the week No. 3 Michigan travels to the Kohl Center to play Wisconsin on Saturday. Michigan will be hungry after losing its top spot in the rankings, but the Badgers rarely go down easy at home.

Despite lower-ranked league, Illinois hockey garners plenty of attention for recruiting BY STEPHEN BOURBON STAFF WRITER

College football’s national signing day is Feb. 6, when the best recruits in the nation sign their official letters-of-intent. The day is filled with press conferences and hat-wearing, as 18-year-old athletes decide where to play football for the next four years. While ACHA hockey doesn’t have the spectacle or frenzy of National Signing Day, recruiting is still an important tool to putting together a championship team. Illinois has done exceptional work on the trail over the past decade, and its effort led to national championships in 2005 and 2008. Although this is head coach Nick Fabbrini’s first year on the job, he has become acclimated with the process of finding future Illini. He’s made phone calls to both high schools and junior hockey teams and utilizes the occasional off weekend to take in games in Springfield; he even went to Kalamazoo over Thanksgiving break. In addition to contacts from his experience coaching for three years in the Chicago area at Fenwick High School, Fabbrini has been working on adding junior hockey coaches to his rolodex to look for players. With exhibitions against the

HILTZIK FROM PAGE 1B thing, the crowd energy helped him recuperate. His eyes were fixed on the match at hand, refusing to let them wander around to the other courts for long. Brad Dancer, head coach of the No. 19 Illini, said while Hiltzik has a lot of work to do in respects to the fundamentals of his tennis game — backhand, second serve, etc. — the three big talents he has working for him are his speed, intelligence in decision-making under pressure, and a very effective first serve that help him win quick points. “Brad always says, ‘I can put you up against a wall and you’ll somehow find a way out,’” Hiltzik said in respects to his mental composure in matches. But Hiltzik is not without flaws. He said he and Dancer have been working on correcting his tendency of looking too much into his opponent and getting ahead of himself to the point of becoming psyched out unnecessarily.

Fabbrini is adamant that the “We out-draw the majority

“For most of these guys, their last games are in their senior year.”

Until two years ago, he didn’t even know what type of tennis player he was. It wasn’t until he became a part of Heiser Tennis Academy — coached by former Illini Billy Heiser — that Hiltzik said he learned to use his speed to his advantage. “When he first got there, he was a good athlete. ... He just hadn’t quite matured yet or understood what he could develop into,” Heiser said. “(His win over Saba) speaks to how tough he is mentally and how much he believe in himself physically.” Now, Hiltzik is a confident, well-composed member of the Illini, knit tight in fabrics of the young team and developing his own rituals of team lunches and cold showers before heading into battle. Senior teammate Stephen Hoh said he admires the way Hiltzik’s confidence rubs off on the team rather than overshadow them, which is a nice trait to have when working toward his ultimate goal as a tennis player: Making it to the pros. Realistically, Hiltzik isn’t any-

where close to the professional level now. As Dancer said, his whole game has to get better from a skill perspective, which he’s improved on since the fall. But counting out an 18-yearold who was ranked the No. 1 recruit in the nation by in 2012 would be senseless. “In tennis now, it’s such a physical game that it’s not a young person’s game anymore,” Heiser said. “So, he’s got a long way away. But if he works hard, he’s got as good a shot as anybody.” This Saturday’s match against No. 9 Kentucky marks another step in Hiltzik’s collegiate career, but the question hanging in the air asks whether he will continue to show his reliability or start to waver under the weight of highranked opponents in the remainder of the season. The only thing that’s for sure is that Jared Hiltzik will be someone to watch for the duration of his time here at Illinois.

Illini team members Scott Barrera(73), John Olen (16), Derek Schultz (10), and JT Turner (18) line up to start the game Nov. 9. Illinois has done a solid job with recruiting despite not having the assets of NCAA-sanctioned teams. of Division III teams (in attendance),” Fabbrini said. “I’d argue there’s nothing a Division III school can offer that we can’t, aside from an NCAA logo on the back of their helmets.”

Even those with Division I-caliber talent don’t always make it. Since there are a limited amount of spots available for teams at that level, some players are in their senior year,

Fabbrini said. “So you’ve got to set yourself up for afterwards.”


I grab the ball, bend my knees and shoot. Air ball. The buzzer sounds and the crowd erupts. Boos, jeers, yells, laughs, everything. I pulled my shirt over my face. One of the rebounders walked up to me, put his hand on my back and said, “Hey, it’s all right,” further reminding me that it was definitely not all right. Another worker walked up to me with a look of That was awful, I am so sorry and a consolation prize: a Bruce Weber signed basketball and an Illini football t-shirt. Tyler Griffey had made one shot. Only one. If I would have made one, they would have still given me the $100. But I didn’t care about the money. The dream of not missing every shot in front of a soldout crowd and poetically airballing the final chance would have been prize enough. The jeering didn’t end when I crossed the sideline. I still had to walk back to my seat. The older crowd lining the A

Section stairs was like the two old farts from the Muppets. “You couldn’t make one?!” “He was blindfolded!” “AIRBALL!” One middle-aged man with his two sons just ironically clapped. My phone was exploding with a constant vibrate. Every text message was “Oh my God,” or, “hahahaha!” Back at my seat, my friends were in stitches. And the moment did not die easily. Late in the game, a Wisconsin player air-balled a free throw. The nearest usher abandoned his post the second the ball hit the floor, walked over to me, leaned in and said: “Hey, kid. You aren’t the only one who can airball a free throw.” Maybe I’m getting off easy saying that it was the worst Assembly Hall basketball performance of only the past two years.

FROM PAGE 1B shots. But on the court, it sounded like the scoreboard was honking at me to make a damn shot already. Another shot, miss. Again and again, miss. I was taking the passes and shooting as fast as I could. The crowd around grew louder, not with encouragement. The rebounders are hectically chasing my misses through their laughter. They’re passing quickly, often without looking. During one shot, a rebounder blindly passed to the free throw line and pelted me in the stomach midrelease. Miss. The crowd gets even louder. I don’t know how many I’ve missed, but I know exactly how many I have made. I shoot another brick. The crowd grows louder, still. The final countdown begins. 5...4...3... I take a deep breath and steady myself. Just make one. Just make one lousy free throw.
