Participants in the secretive process of selecting the LSU president were advised to systemically avert Louisiana public records laws, according to the transcript released Saturday of Presidential Search Committee chairman Blake Chatelain’s deposition last Monday. According to Chatelain’s comments in the transcript, the University’s lead legal counsel Shelby McKenzie advised committee members to use personal CHATELAIN email accounts and avoid written communication regarding the specific candidates and their names, all in an effort to avoid communication that would fall under Louisiana public records laws. Editor in Chief of The Daily Reveille Andrea Gallo filed suit against the University earlier this month — after being denied public records requests for all of the candidates’ names — on the grounds that, by Louisiana law, the names and qualifications of candidates for public positions must be made public. NOLA. com | The Times-Picayune and The Advocate filed suit as well. “We learned that the Board set up a very sophisticated way to review potential LSU presidents in hopes that it would not violate Louisiana public records law,” said Scott Sternberg, Gallo’s lawyer. Chatelain was asked by lawyer Lori Mince, who represents | The Times-Picayune and The Advocate, why personal emails were not disclosed after The Advocate’s public records request of all communications between representatives of the search firm and members of the Board of Supervisors or the

LSU senior running back Alfred Blue issued an apology and clarification Friday following his comments that appeared in a Daily Reveille story regarding the possibility of a homosexual athlete on the LSU football team. “I understand that my comments may have sounded insensitive to those who read the Reveille article on Friday. I in no way meant to belittle any person’s way of life and feel that everyone deserves a chance to become whatever they want to be,” Blue said in a statement. In the quote that appeared, Blue called football a violent and aggressive sport that grown men are supposed to play. “Ain’t no little boys out here between them lines,” Blue said in the story. “So if you gay, we look at you as a sissy. You know? Like, how you going to say you can do what we do and you want a man?” In the statement, Blue also clarified the extent of his interview was not included in the story. “One of my comments that was left out of Friday’s article shows this. I told the reporter that if any person can help to contribute to the team, then that is the bottom line. I apologize if anyone was hurt by my comments and also to everyone that I may have let down,” he said. Later in his interview with The Daily Reveille, Blue said the team would come to accept a homosexual athlete. “I’m pretty sure [LSU coach Les Miles] would probably sit the team down and just talk about it, talk about the situation and explain to us even though that’s how he wants to be, it doesn’t change his play and how he contributes to the team,” Blue said. The full audio recording of The Daily Reveille’s interview with Blue is available at

Baton Rouge runners show their support for victims in Boston Fernanda Zamudio-Suarez Staff Writer

Runners and walkers across the nation and locally in Baton Rouge laced up their shoes and took to the streets for Boston on Saturday morning. Jennifer Peters, owner of Varsity Sports and former professor in the E.J. Ourso College of Business, organized a women’s and men’s team to run in the Boston marathon. On April 15, two bombs exploded near

the finish line of the marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 170 racers and spectators. None of the Varsity Sports runners were injured, Peters said. In solidarity, Peters and Danny Bourgeois, marketing director of The Louisiana Marathon, decided to organize a 2.62-mile run and walk for Boston. “It’s something that people across the community are doing,” Peters said. Bourgeois said the run/walk

was able to come together so quickly because of the spirit of runners in Baton Rouge. “The running community in Baton Rouge is well connected and very focused,” Bourgeois said. “The selflessness allows for competitors and associates to pull together quickly.”

INTERNATIONAL Tens of thousands of gay marriage opponents demonstrate in Paris PARIS (AP) — Tens of thousands of demonstrators took to sunny Paris boulevards on Sunday to protest the expected passage this week of a bill legalizing gay marriage. One protestor called the bill “a threat to the social fabric.” Legalizing gay marriage was one of President Francois Hollande’s campaign promises. Polls have shown a narrow majority of French favor allowing such unions, though the support weakens when questions about adoption and conception of children come into play. Condition of 5-year-old Indian girl who was allegedly raped improves NEW DELHI (AP) — The condition of a 5-year-old girl who was allegedly kidnapped, raped and tortured by a man and then left alone in a locked room in India’s capital for two days has improved, a doctor said Sunday, as protests continued over the authorities’ handling of the case. The girl was in critical condition when she was transferred Thursday from a local hospital to the largest government-run hospital in the country. But her doctor in New Delhi said Sunday that she was responding well to treatment.

Senator: Marathon bombing suspect shot in throat, unable to speak

School talks possible magnet programs under way in Tangipahoa

BOSTON (AP) — A U.S. senator says the hospitalized suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing was shot in the throat, raising questions about his ability to speak to investigators. Senate Intelligence Committee member Sen. Dan Coats of Indiana told ABC’s “This Week” that there are questions over whether Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will be able to talk again. Coats said that doesn’t mean the 19-year-old can’t communicate, but for now, he’s not in the condition to. Five snowboarders killed in Saturday’s Colorado avalanche identified

AMITE (AP) — Tangipahoa Parish school officials are discussing possible changes to the school system’s plan for court-ordered improvements. The Advocate reports that school system officials have proposed clustering schools and using magnet programs or other enhancements to attract students across current school district lines in an effort to desegregate without having to spend $54.5 million on three new elementary schools required under the current plan. The School Board sought a status conference in February to present the proposal to U.S. District Judge Ivan L.R. Lemelle.

DENVER (AP) — Authorities have released the names of five Colorado snowboarders killed over the weekend in the state’s deadliest avalanche in more than 50 years. Clear Creek County Sheriff Don Krueger said search and rescue crews recovered the men’s bodies from a backcountry area on Loveland Pass several hours after Saturday afternoon’s slide, which was about 600 feet wide and 8 feet deep. All of the men were equipped with avalanche beacons. The sheriff on Sunday identified the victims.

Tiger Bridge program won’t displace LSU students BRCC students to live in McVoy Hall Zach Carline Contributing Writer

Rooms once filled by LSU students will now have new occupants come fall 2013. McVoy Hall will be the new home for Baton Rouge Community College students enrolled in

the Tiger Bridge Program at the University, an invitation-only program in which BRCC students will live and participate in University life while taking classes at BRCC. McVoy Hall has a total of 182 beds, and Director of Residential Life Steven Waller said the Tiger Bridge Program anticipates to use all of them. Waller indicated that new students living in McVoy will not displace any of the incoming

A study room on the top floor of Annie Boyd Hall is nearing completion Monday. Renovations on the hall began in June, and the project is set to be finished by the fall.

students to the University. Both Kirby Smith and Annie Boyd residential hall renovations are expected to be complete this fall. Renovations on the Annie Boyd residential hall began in June, Waller said. The newly renovated hall will have a total of 110 beds, a new lounge, study spaces, computers and a basement kitchen. However, Waller said the most noticeable change will be the raised patio on the outside of the building. The new changes will also incorporate more eco-friendly features that have become the norm for new ResLife projects. Low-energy lights, central airconditioning as well as an energy recovery system will make

the hall more energy efficient than before. Associate Director of Residential Life Jay High said their first priority is to get Annie Boyd complete and then possibly open the hall up to students. “A lot can happen between now and then,” High said. The plan is for the renovated eighth through tenth floors of Kirby Smith to be used this fall to house students, and Annie Boyd will be housing for students who have previously lived on campus and those students who were unable to obtain a spot in the oncampus apartments. High said the horseshoe is typically used to house returning students — a plan that ResLife will continue to

implement after the renovation of Annie Boyd. In addition to having the use of the two additional halls, ResLife has received less housing requests this year than previous years. Waller said ResLife had a standby list of about 300 people last year. Most of the people who stayed on the list received housing. This year ResLife has received about 300 fewer housing requests, which should eliminate the need for a standby list.

Combining the roles of LSU president and University chancellor is “awkward” and creates difficulty for President-elect F. King Alexander to distinguish between his two roles, accreditation officials said at a Transition Advisory Team meeting Friday. Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the agency that grants accreditation to the University, met with the Team to discuss potential structural changes that could affect how the institution is accredited in the future. For the University to continue receiving accreditation, it must meet SACS standards and policies. Admissions standards, sports programs and state appropriations were among the topics of discussion touched upon by SACS President Belle Wheelan, Transition Advisory Team members and representatives from University campuses at the meeting. However, while the Transition Advisory Team examines different focus areas of the System that could be more efficient and effective, most of their business will not actually affect accreditation at

all, said SSA Consultant Christel Slaughter. The Team’s ideas can be implemented as soon as they are fully conceptualized without any consequence to accreditation, said Interim System President and Chancellor William “Bill” Jenkins. The Board of Supervisors and Board of Regents are the entities that have ultimate control over major structural changes to the University. “This is probably going to take legislative changes,” Wheelan said. “There’s no doubt about it.” Wheelan said one institution means things like rules, regulations, academic policies and recruiting materials must be uniform throughout the System. It also means state appropriations money would come straight to LSU rather than to separately accredited institutions like LSU Alexandria, LSU Eunice or LSU Shreveport, as they do now. Being one entity means there is one set of admissions standards for the University, although it can have different requirements for separate programs. Reorganization changes could also affect sports programs. “If there’s only one entity, there can only be one sports team,” Wheelan said. Despite Wheelan’s warnings, the Board of Supervisors recently approved additional sports

programs at other campuses. Friday’s meeting with SACS made reorganization leaders aware of the implications of structural changes, although no official changes have been made other than merging the position of System president and University chancellor. The Team must decide up front what the redefined structure will be and then decide how the various LSU entities will work together, Wheelan said. The University’s separate institutions can continue to be accredited separately or could be accredited as one, she said. “Changing it such that Dr. Alexander is going to be both the president of the System and the CEO of the campus is awkward,” Wheelan said. “The primary responsibility of the CEO is to the institution, not to the organization. It becomes difficult to know which hat you’re wearing.” Alexander’s dual role could create a conflict of interest, potentially disadvantaging other campuses if he cannot distinguish between his two jobs, Wheelan said. “How is that going to work?” Wheelan asked. “If Eunice has a problem, would there be an issue with King acting as chancellor and president?” Contact Alyson Gaharan at

Should a person’s concealed carry license last forever? Students voice opinions on bill Fernanda Zamudio-Suarez Staff Writer

The popular saying “Nothing lasts forever” may not be valid anymore when it comes to concealed carry licenses in Louisiana. House Bill 265 by Rep. Barry Ivey, R-Baton Rouge, would allow gun owners to obtain lifetime concealed carry permits for a one-time fee of $500. Currently, concealed carry

owners have to reapply for their licenses for $125 every five years. The reapplication process also includes mandatory training courses. Cameron Cooke, legislative assistant to Rep. Ivey, said the bill is not controversial because it includes an amendment to continue education. “The concealed carry holder still has to continue to be able to pass the education part of the exam every five years,” Cooke said. Cooke said the purpose of the bill is to save citizens money and time by eliminating the reapplication process. Daniel Zelenka, president of

the Louisiana Shooting Association said via email the organization has not taken a stance on the bill. With a father in the Army, electrical engineering junior Martea Aultman has grown up around guns. She is currently in the process of obtaining a concealed carry license through the state of Utah, and the license will be valid in Louisiana. Although Aultman said she believes in Second Amendment rights, she said she does not agree with HB 265. “It’s important for people to reapply,” Aultman said.

Sport administration freshman Jake Shows said he has owned a gun since he was 15 and uses it for hunting and recreational shooting. Similarly, Shows feels a lifetime permit would be inappropriate. “I don’t think you should have one for a lifetime, because at some point in your life, you shouldn’t be running around with a gun,” Shows said. Environmental engineering junior Samantha Martello also said she believes the lifetime permit should be situational. Martello said when purchasing the license, an individual might be

in a fine mental state, but one can go through changes that can make him or her unfit to own a concealed carry weapon. Through concealed carry training, Aultman said instruction courses have enforced shooting for safety and protection but not shooting to kill. Shows said no matter how long a permit lasts, gun owners should know gun safety and the changes in laws.

Students around campus said they are unsure about the Faculty Senate’s new plan to use the plagiarism software TurnItIn and iThenticate. The Faculty Senate passed a resolution Wednesday to use plagiarism software to catch students who plagiarize and teach students how to correctly paraphrase and cite information. “There really are a few students who don’t quite grasp what plagiarism is. A system that would at least give them a fairly reliable indication of where material might have been borrowed would be an educational tool,” said Faculty Senate President Kevin Cope. “The opportunity for plagiarism even within a relatively short paper is quite prominent. Therefore, the automation of the checking is useful to ensure the integrity of the teaching project.” Biochemistry freshman Ashton Sells used it in high school and said the effectiveness of the software depends on how it is used. “It counts how many words you use that are similar to a certain topic. There are only so many words you can use for the topic, so of course they’re going to line up

or there’s going to be some correlation between those. It’s kind of hard to prove how much is actually plagiarism and how much is authentic,” Sells said. “For biology essays, there are specific topics that are very concise, and you have to use certain words or phrases for it to make sense.” Communication disorders senior Leigh Ann Benbow, who used the software in high school, said she does not see the harm in using it. “I could see why professors would want to use it. I’ve never seen plagiarism to be a huge threat because I’ve never encountered it while I’ve been here,” she said. “I’ve never plagiarized anything, so I just assume that no one else has plagiarized anything either. I feel like students know better because they know what they’re risking.” But she said a student should not be held accountable if he or she doesn’t know what plagiarism is. English freshman Katie Keller said she thinks an initiative against plagiarism is good. “I don’t know how you can be in college and not know what plagiarism is,” she said.

Presidential Search Committee. “It is my understanding that I didn’t have to produce those,” Chatelain said, “based on counsel’s advice.” Upon Mince’s questioning, Chatelain confirmed that he remembered McKenzie telling the committee it should avoid written communications because members would be subject to the Louisiana Public Records Act. “It was critical because confidentiality of candidates is important,” Chatelain said. “I don’t think he advised us to put nothing in writing, but as it pertained to candidates, that we should be very careful.” Chatelain also detailed numerous undisclosed documents used during the search, including a binder full of “roughly 10” candidates’ résumés used during an executive session Feb. 1 that was used as reference during the selection process. The executive session was closed to the public. Among Mince’s exhibits were documents in which Ray Lamonica, former general counsel to the LSU System, outlined a code of conduct to “respect confidentiality of informal inquiries, discussions and statements.” All members of the committee were asked to sign the code of conduct, which states, “I understand that informal communications, discussions and inquiries are necessary to attract high quality finalists” and to avoid putting their current positions in jeopardy. Along with personal emails, other means of informal communication were utilized as well, as discussions between Chatelain and individual members of the committee regarding their preferred candidates were conducted via individual telephone calls. When asked how he recorded the selections of the 13 committee members while speaking with them over the phone, Chatelain said he may have had a sticky note or note pad — though “for the most part I was pretty familiar with who I thought the top candidates were,” he added. It was by this process that the committee narrowed 35 candidates to the recently elected LSU president F. King Alexander; the process began with about 100 candidates. The remaining candidates for the position have not been released. “The deposition speaks for itself,” Sternberg said. | The TimesPicayune and The Advocate’s case is scheduled to be heard April 25, according to NOLA. com | The Times-Picayune, while Gallo’s suit is scheduled for April 30.

“There is a hunger for positivity out there,” Rancic said. When the couple had issues with infertility, they decided to go public with their struggle. “We put this journey out there, and we were reliving all the pain all day long and had no reward at the end of the day,” Rancic said. When visiting a new doctor for infertility treatments, she had a mammogram done and was diagnosed with cancer. After hearing the news, she described a feeling of falling and only hearing words like “chemotherapy,” “lambodomey” and “mastectomy.” After several discussions with her husband, Rancic decided to go public with her story to report on an issue that could help save someone’s life. “It’s a privilege to have this platform, and it’s given me the courage to share this story,” Rancic said. Two weeks after her double mastectomy, Rancic returned to work to get back to normalcy as quickly as possible. Rancic highlighted that the hair and makeup part of her job

allowed her to finally recognize the person in the mirror after surgery. This feeling granted to her by a team of stylists and proper lighting led her to start the foundation, Fab-U-Wish which grants beautyand style-themed wishes to women with breast and ovarian cancer. Lafayette resident Roxanne Graham said she came to the event to support her daughter, but walked away from the talk just as inspired as the other young women in the audience. Catherine Cole, education freshman, said Rancic presented herself as a relatable person. “It made her sound really personal. She can relate to people,” Cole said. Graham also said she enjoyed the strong message of turning tough situations into something positive. “It became her purpose to help others,” Graham said. “One day someone is going to use this message to get through a rough time.”

Sophomore all-arounder Rheagan Courville won a share of the national vault title as the No. 5 LSU gymnastics team tied for its second-highest finish in school history, scoring a 197.050 to finish in fifth place at the Super Six Finals in Los Angeles on Saturday night. Courville earned a 9.9250 to tie Alabama’s junior all-arounder Diandra Milliner for the national vault championship in the individual competition Sunday afternoon. Courville also placed ninth on floor by registering a 9.8125. Courville brought in First Team All-America honors for her performances on vault, floor and the all-around. The sophomore all-arounder was the national runner-up in the all-around with a 39.575, just .025 behind Florida’s freshman all-arounder Bridget Sloan. “It was such an honor, especially to be with so many of my teammates,” Courville said. “It says so much about our program, how much depth we have and how accomplished we were this year. We were all so blessed to be there, but to be able to be on the podium was icing on top.” No. 1 Florida won the national title with a 197.575 to unseat two-time defending champion No. 3 Alabama, which came in third. No. 2 Oklahoma came in second, and following the Tide were No. 6 UCLA, LSU and No. 4 Georgia. The Tigers (25-11) advanced to the Super Six after placing second in Friday afternoon’s Semifinal I with a 197.325, which was the highest team score at an NCAA Championship meet in program history. LSU also set new highs for vault and bars at a championship meet with a 49.500 and a 49.475, respectively. “Although we didn’t have any mistakes tonight, we didn’t compete with the same confidence,” said LSU coach D-D Breaux in a post-meet radio interview. “[Friday] night, it was all about that reckless abandon feeling. … We got here, and I think these kids were ready to

Mettenberger, passing game shine in Spring Game James Moran Sports Contributor

LSU brought in Cam Cameron as offensive coordinator to help fix a stagnant passing attack that ranked No. 94 in the nation a season ago. If Saturday’s Spring Game is any indication, the Tigers are on the right track. Senior quarterback Zach Mettenberger led the White team, mostly comprised of starters, to a 37-0 victory against the Purple squad. Playing only the first half, Mettenberger finished 12-of-19 for 236 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. “Offensively, we threw the football well, rushed it well,” said LSU coach Les Miles. “Again, it’s more of the statistics against the second team defense which might be a little thin — but still guys who needed to catch the ball did, and the guys who needed to throw it did.” Mettenberger didn’t start the game great. He overthrew a couple of open receivers down the field and finished the first quarter just 5-of-11. The White team settled for a field goal and two punts on its first three drives. Junior wide receiver Odell

Beckham Jr. said the offense did not dwell on the early misfires because it knew there would be more opportunities to come with Cameron’s system. “We all had an understanding of ‘let’s just get the next one,’” Beckham said. “We missed that one, and we can’t get it back so we can’t keep looking back on it. We ended up connected on a few deep ones later.” On the White team’s first drive of the second quarter, Beckham ran through a double team and Mettenberger found him for a 50-yard gain, setting up his 15-yard touchdown pass to sophomore tight end Dillon Gordon three plays later. The defense played one-on-one coverage on Beckham on the first play of the next drive, and Mettenberger took another shot deep down the field. Beckham made the catch, broke a tackle and walked into the end zone for a 79-yard touchdown. “We did all right today, and we can get better from here,” Mettenberger said. Cameron gave each quarterback the freedom of calling his own plays. Each quarterback wore a wristband of scripted plays and they OFFENSE, see page 15

Young defense shows potential, aims to remove doubt Tyler Nunez Sports Writer

The LSU football team’s defense showed signs of promise Saturday at the annual Spring Game as the White team, comprised primarily of projected starters, prevented the Purple squad from getting on the scoreboard. The Tigers are faced with the lofty task of replacing seven defensive starters from last season. Junior defensive tackle Ego Ferguson said he and his teammates wanted to remove any doubts LSU fans had about their relatively green team. “A lot of people said that we couldn’t do it and that we were a lot thinner of a defensive line since we lost a few people,” Ferguson said. “I had the mindset that I wanted to prove a lot today.” The White squad held the opposing offense to eight first downs, a 31 percent completion percentage and 208 total yards. It also tallied three sacks, four quarterback hurries and an interception. LSU’s defensive line showed it may be able to be productive despite not having the depth of previous lines. Sophomore lineman Danielle

Hunter showed prowess at defensive end, leading the Tigers with eight tackles and two sacks. Ferguson and fellow junior defensive tackle Anthony Johnson also had impressive outings, combining for 12 tackles. Junior defensive end Jordan Allen contributed with four tackles and an assisted sack. “With the guys we have in the front, no matter what quarterback we are playing, you have about three seconds to get the ball out, and that is what we try to accomplish,” said senior safety Craig Loston. Junior Jermauria Rasco is expected to start at defensive end but did not participate in the Spring Game due to a shoulder injury. LSU coach Les Miles confirmed the middle linebacker position will be filled by either junior D.J. Welter or senior Lamin Barrow. Welter got the start at the position Saturday, but stayed relatively

Senior left fielder Raph Rhymes: Day in the Life Catherine Threlkeld Sports Contributor

If the phrase “speak softly and carry a big stick” applied to anyone on the LSU baseball team, it would be senior left fielder Raph Rhymes. The soft-spoken 23-year-old is the self-dubbed grandpa of the team, a well-respected elder among his peers. At any hour of the day, Rhymes is being a role model. On this Wednesday afternoon in early April, Rhymes parks his 2008 white Hummer SUT in front of Alex Box Stadium. The massive vehicle takes a bit of maneuvering. Pull in halfway, back out a bit. Pull the steering wheel hard to the left, and the car squeezes into the space. He has to do that every time he parks. It’s midafternoon, and it’s practice time. “He’s always on time,” said senior first baseman Mason Katz. Rhymes, a sports administration major with a business minor, just got out of his only class, Finance 3715. The class is Monday and Wednesday from 1:30 to 3, so it doesn’t take up much of his time. He’s a study-the-night-before-thetest guy anyway. He arrives at Alex Box wearing casual LSU sports apparel and changes into his No. 4 baseball uniform for practice. Out of the locker

room and into the dugout, he arrives to a posse of media, some armed with massive television cameras and some with recorders, but all wanting quotes for their stories. After playing ball at LSUEunice where he said he got maybe two interviews all season, the media attention was initially a shock for Rhymes. “You get looked at so much, it’s unbelievable,” Rhymes said. “You feel like a celebrity.” Rhymes answers questions about topics like upcoming games and his batting average, which currently ranks fourth on the team at .327, behind only Katz, freshman short stop Alex Bregman and junior third baseman Christian Ibarra. In the midst of the interviews, the players do their early work. This consists of practicing skills without a coach overseeing necessarily. Rhymes runs — because walking isn’t allowed — to the batting cages and joins junior outfielder Sean McMullen and junior infielder Tyler Moore in a cage. They rotate taking whacks at baseballs on a Tball stand. Place a ball, whack, rotate. After the batting cages, Rhymes and the other players begin practice. First order of business: stretch for about 15 minutes. Each practice varies. Sometimes the players bunt, work on

defensive fundamentals or hit on the field. No matter what they do, it’s accompanied by the blaring sounds of Rihanna and Eminem over the Alex Box loudspeakers. The players take turns batting and fielding balls. Katz said Rhymes is always the first guy in the outfield because “he doesn’t want to miss a single ball.” “It looks like he’s never played before ‘cause he’s out there diving into walls in practice,” Katz said. After fielding balls in the outfield, Rhymes helps collect balls into white buckets. He gets in a little basketball practice by tossing balls to the bucket from a distance. It’s not his best athletic ability. If it’s a non-game day, practice closes with LSU coach Paul Mainieri giving the team a message, sometimes about upcoming games or staying on top of schoolwork. If it’s a game day, Rhymes heads to the dugout after LSU’s practice to let the opposing team take the field for warm-ups. Rhymes checks the locker rooms to make sure everyone is out so they don’t get yelled at. On most days, a crowd of kids wielding Sharpies beckon him over with balls that need signing and pictures that need taking. After the game, another autograph-hungry crowd waits for the team as they come out of the locker

room. Rhymes asks the kids if they enjoyed the game and when they’ll return. “No doubt we have the best fans in the country,” Rhymes said. After games or practice, it’s time to feed. Rhymes usually joins his teammates and family members at restaurants like Walk-Ons, George’s or Rotolo’s after games. His go-to eating buddy is junior pitcher Nate Fury “because he likes

to eat, too.” Rhymes and a couple players climb into the Hummer to go to a late dinner. He backs out a bit, drives forward a little, backs out again and leaves Alex Box for the night. He’ll be back again tomorrow. Contact Catherine Threlkeld at

Tiger defense struggles, squad drops finale at ’Bama Final two games go to extra innings Lawrence Barreca Sports Writer

After a 16-inning marathon victory for the No. 3 LSU baseball team that ended at midnight Sunday morning, LSU and Alabama continued with the extra-inning trend in a 4-3 Crimson Tide win in Sunday’s series finale. The Tigers (37-4, 15-3 Southeastern Conference) took the first game of the series while riding sophomore starter Aaron Nola as the right-hander tossed a completegame shutout and struck out 10 Crimson Tide (24-18, 9-9 SEC) batters. The case was different Saturday, as Alabama overcame a three-run deficit in the bottom of the ninth to force extra innings in Tuscaloosa. What resulted was a five-hour, 16-inning contest that finally concluded in an 11-8 win for the Tigers. When both squads arrived back at the stadium Sunday, they began play only 13 hours after the previous game ended. It was only fitting that both squads would play into extra innings again. With LSU trailing 3-2 in the

top of the ninth, senior first baseman Mason Katz laced a leadoff single, then junior third baseman Christian Ibarra slammed a double over Alabama sophomore right fielder Ben Moore’s head. LSU sophomore outfielder Chris Sciambra then came through in the clutch, hitting a sacrifice fly to tie the game at three. The game only lasted into the 10th, though, as Alabama loaded the bases with two outs for Crimson Tide freshman second baseman Kyle Overstreet to knock a gamewinning single to center field and allow Alabama to avoid the sweep. Earlier this week, LSU coach Paul Mainieri acknowledged he wasn’t certain if sophomore starter Cody Glenn (5-1) would be able to make Sunday’s start after Glenn took a line drive off his leg in last Sunday’s series finale against Arkansas and was forced to leave the game. The sophomore southpaw responded by tossing eight innings of three-run baseball with only one run earned, surrendering four hits while striking out four. “We basically gave them all of the runs they got,” Mainieri said. “It was really a shame, too, because Cody Glenn pitched a tremendous game. He pitched his heart out and deserved a better fate than that. We didn’t do the things

that we have been doing all year from a fundamentals standpoint.” The Tigers’ defense committed three errors Sunday, leading to two unearned runs for the Tide. LSU’s fielders had only 26 errors prior to the series finale. “It was very uncharacteristic of us today because our defense really let us down,” Mainieri said. Senior reliever Joey Bourgeois (2-1) took the mound for the Tigers in the ninth and 10th innings. The

right-hander tossed a scoreless ninth inning but wasn’t able to escape trouble in the bottom of the 10th, eventually picking up his first loss of the season. Offensively, Ibarra carried the load for the Tigers on Sunday, going 3-for-4 with a run scored. The third baseman also played a prominent role in Saturday’s marathon victory, going 3-for-6 with two runs scored. Overall, Ibarra batted for a .500 average in the series.

Sciambra and junior catcher Ty Ross both had RBIs in Sunday’s contest, capping off a productive weekend for the Tigers’ catcher. Ross had two hits in Saturday’s 11-8 victory, including a three-run bomb over the left field wall in the top of the fourth inning. Contact Lawrence Barreca at; Twitter: @LawrenceBarreca

Missouri topples Tigers with pitching, home runs LSU drops first conference series Spencer Hutchinson Sports Contributor

The No. 11 LSU softball team faced No. 12 Missouri’s Chelsea Thomas and Nicole Hudson on the wrong weekend. Thomas tossed a complete game Sunday, and three-hole hitter Hudson launched two home runs to drive in all of Missouri’s runs in a 3-2 victory to hand LSU its first Southeastern Conference series loss this season. Sunday’s win for Missouri (267, 11-6 SEC) came after Thomas pitched a complete game for a win in game one of the series Friday. LSU (37-11, 12-6 SEC) was little match for the senior ace, as she twice outdueled LSU pitcher Rachele Fico. Fico pitched much better Sunday than she did Friday when she allowed six runs with three earned on nine Missouri hits. The second time out, she allowed six hits with five strikeouts and essentially shut down Missouri’s lineup except for one hitter — Hudson.

Hudson took Fico out of the park for a two-run home run in the top of the third inning, which vaulted Missouri ahead of LSU, 2-1. In the top of the fifth, she smashed a soaring solo home run off the right field scoreboard to push Missouri’s lead to 3-1. LSU scratched home a run in the bottom of the fifth, but Thomas proceeded to slam the door on any hope of an LSU comeback, retiring the final eight hitters to finish off her complete-game effort. “[Thomas] definitely made adjustments when we made adjustments,” said LSU freshman shortstop Bianka Bell, who was the only player with multiple hits on Thomas and drove in LSU’s first run with an RBI single in the first inning. “When we started swinging at the low pitches, she started bringing it up in the zone and we just couldn’t adjust with her,” Bell said. Fico didn’t light up the scoreboard with strikeouts as she has been keen to do this season, but her outing was nonetheless solid, excluding two pitches to Hudson. In Friday and Sunday’s losses, the LSU lineup provided Fico virtually no cushion with a combined three runs of support in her

two starts. Regardless of the run support she received, Fico said the most frustrating thing is getting beaten by essentially one hitter. “It’s always hard to swallow when the same kid beats you twice,” Fico said. “… When someone is good like that, you can’t take anything away from them. [Hudson] is a great player, and she was just on today.” LSU doesn’t have a midweek game this week, but it will begin its final home series of the season against No. 4 Alabama on Thursday. The Tigers sit tied with Alabama for first in the SEC West standings despite dropping their first conference series of the season to Missouri. This weekend’s matchup against the Crimson Tide could decide who takes the SEC West crown. “We’re still in the driver’s seat,” said LSU coach Beth Torina. “We still can win the series with Alabama and be in a good spot in the SEC, and I think we just have to rebound from this and prepare really well for Alabama.” MORGAN SEARLES / The Daily Reveille

Natoya Goule sets record at LSU Alumni Gold meet Seniors complete f inal home meet Spencer Hutchinson Sports Contributor

Olympians and former LSU greats took to the track with the LSU track and field team Saturday, but junior middle distance runner Natoya Goule stole the show. Goule broke her own school record in the 800-meter run, posting a blistering time of 2 minutes, .76 seconds, which bested her record of 2:01.18 set at UCLA’s Rafer Johnson/Jackie Joyner-Kersee Invitational on April 6. “The highlight of our day was seeing what Natoya Goule was able to do in the 800,” said LSU coach Dennis Shaver. “It’s impressive to get on the Bernie Moore Stadium track and set a record

with the events we’ve hosted and all the athletes who have run here over the years.” The meet wasn’t a scored event, so there was no team winner. But joining LSU and its former All-American and Olympian athletes were athletes from a host of schools, including Alabama, Ilinois, Houston, Minnesota, Texas State, South Florida, Harvard and Texas A&M. Also in the field of participants were in-state schools LouisianaMonroe, UL-Lafayette, Louisiana Tech, Northwestern State and Tulane. LSU came away with three individual event wins in the meet. Among the notable former Tigers who returned for the meet were Cassandra Tate, who took first in the women’s 400-meter hurdles on Saturday, and Jeremy Hicks, who bested LSU senior long jumper Damar Forbes for first place in the men’s long jump

with a wind-aided jump of 27 feet, 3 inches. Forbes, who currently boasts the second-best outdoor long jump in the NCAA this season, finished the meet with a best jump of 25-0 1/2 in what was his last home meet at LSU. Also making her final appearance in a Baton Rouge meet was senior women’s sprinting star Kimberlyn Duncan, who easily bested the field in the women’s 100-meter with a time of 11.19. Saturday wasn’t the final appearance Forbes and Duncan will make in an LSU uniform, as each will look to lead LSU at the SEC Championships in less than two weeks. LSU will first compete Thursday in the Penn Relays in Philadelphia as the final warm-up meet before the conference championships. With the season winding down, Shaver said he’s happy with the status of his team, especially the athletes with the most expectations such as Forbes and Duncan. “Our top athletes have been consistently performing well for us, but we’ve been needing our No. 2 and No. 3 people to step up and compete a little bit better than what they have to this point,” Shaver said. “They are the ones who we will be counting on at the SEC meet in a few weeks.” photos by [Top] RICHARD REDMANN; [Bottom] TAYLOR BALKOM / The Daily Reveille

Women finish tied for seventh at SEC Championship tourney James Moran Sports Contributor

The LSU women’s golf team finished in a tie for seventh at the SEC Championships on Sunday at Greystone Country Club in Hoover, Ala. The Lady Tigers tied No. 5 Arkansas with a three-round score of 59-over 923. They finished 24 shots behind No. 2 Alabama, who won the tournament at 35-over. “It didn’t quite go the way we wanted it to,” said LSU coach Karen Bahnsen. “We need to keep building from this and use this as

a learning experience.” LSU led the tournament by one stroke after the first round of the tournament, posting a round of 15-over 303, but shot 23-over and 21-over in the second and third rounds, respectively, to drop down the leaderboard. “Some weeks aren’t your week,” Bahnsen said. “We are going to get there. They’ve done some really good things this semester and we aren’t done yet.” Bahnsen said the experience will help them prepare for the NCAA Regional tournament May 9, regardless of what region they

end up in. Junior Lindsay Gahm finished in a tie for 11th overall with a score of 13-over 229 for the week. She shot 2-over 74 in the first round, 6-over in the second round and 5-over in the final round. Alabama junior Stephanie Meadow won the tournament by nine strokes after finishing the week at even-par.

The LSU men’s golf team posted a 17-over par score of 297 on the final day of the Southeastern Conference Championships to finish in 11th place with a total score of 41-over par 881 across the entire weekend. Sophomore Curtis Thompson finished as the highest-ranked Tiger, as his 2-over par 72 on Sunday was good for a top-15 finish. Thompson’s day was a strong follow-up performance, which

came after his 5-over 75 on Friday and team-low 2-over 72 day on Saturday. He finished tied for 15th place. This was the Coral Springs, Fla., native’s first experience golfing at the SEC Championships. Junior Andrew Presley was the second-highest ranked Tiger as his 4-over 74 on Sunday tied him for 47th place with a total score of 14-over par 224 for the weekend. No. 2 Alabama defended its SEC title despite opening Sunday three strokes behind

South Carolina. The Tiger golfers will now await the results from the NCAA Regional seeding, which will be decided on 8 p.m. May 6. The seeding is decided on by the NCAA Selection Committee.

called the play based on the situation. Miles said the purpose of Cameron’s decision was not to give the quarterbacks control of the offense but to gain insight into how his signal callers think through a football game. “It’s an exercise that allows you to see what the quarterback thinks, how he views the game

plan, what he would call, how he would operate things,” Miles said. “It’s one that will improve the quarterbacks having done it. It fills in for a quarterback some of the things they need to have accomplished before they go into the gameplan.” Mettenberger said Saturday was the first time he ever had full autonomy to call his own plays. He acknowledged he struggled with it at first but grew comfortable as the

game went on. “Coach Cam did that to see how our head was in the game with down and distance management,” Mettenberger said. “I think all of us did really well with that.”

compete well, and they gave it all they had.” The meet marked LSU’s third appearance in the Super Six after back-to back appearances in 2008 and 2009, when the Tigers finished in fifth and sixth place, respectively. The Tigers started the meet with a bye before earning a 49.200 on uneven bars. LSU tallied a 49.125 on balance beam to stand at 98.325 halfway through the competition. After another bye, LSU put on a floor routine clinic, racking up a 49.550, its highest floor score in any national championship meet. The Tigers remained within reach but failed to close the gap as they ended the meet with a 49.175 on vault. “A 197 is no score to sneeze at,” Breaux said. “We just showed a lack of experience at being here at a championship.” Sophomore all-arounder Jessie Jordan picked up second team honors on floor and all-around, while fellow sophomore all-arounder Lloimincia Hall gained a second team accolade on floor. Additional first team recognition went to junior all-arounder Maliah Mathis for vault, junior all-arounder Sarie Morrison on vault and uneven bars and freshman all-arounder Randii

quiet throughout the scrimmage, tallying just two tackles compared to Barrow’s seven. Barrow has only played at outside linebacker, but he said he is willing to play in whatever position Miles feels he will be most productive. “Of course I’m used to the outside, but when I came in as a freshman I was an inside linebacker, so I’m ready wherever,” Barrow said. “... The main thing is getting the best three guys on the field. All our guys are ready. Whoever gets that third spot is going to be fine.” Sophomore linebacker Kwon Alexander also had a promising showing, leading the Purple squad

with seven tackles, one for loss, and breaking up two passes. Loston stood out in the backfield at free safety earning six tackles, breaking up a pass and grabbing the sole interception of the scrimmage. Miles said he was happy with the defense’s performance as a whole, and said the addition of incoming freshmen this summer can only help. “There’s a lot to build on,” Miles said. “Certainly a great challenge to start a summer season.”

Recent tragedies difficult to understand BLUE-EYED DEVIL

NICHOLAS PIERCE Columnist Tamerlan Tsarnaev is dead — killed in a fire fight with Bostonarea police — and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is finally in custody. Last week, as thick gray smoke billowed across the finish line of the Boston Marathon, I was transported momentarily to my fifth-grade classroom as I watched the Twin Towers fold into the New York City sidewalk. I felt like a bag of bricks had been hung around my neck. If it was a Muslim, I knew I had to worry for my wife, for my friends, for the inevitable reprisals. And not just the physical kind but the psychological and unintentional. The low-level pressure constantly building in people’s hearts that makes it hard for women like my wife to walk down the street, to look a cashier in the eye or smile at a stranger. If it wasn’t a Muslim, that would almost be worse. That would mean a new sort of evil had

Sept. 11, Iraq, Afghanistan, friends coming home with mental wounds and physical scars, Columbine, Virginia Tech, Tucson, Aurora, Sandy Hook — can’t we have a year or month without this madness, this accelerating chaos? They all started to blend in my head — Mohamed Atta, Richard Reid and James Holmes — a perverted panoply of horror-bringers. By Thursday, I had my columns ready to go, and I was set with my canned responses. I’ve spent the better part of three years beating the drum of interfaith cooperation. I’ve stuck up for my community when wronged and tried my damnedest to show people the Islam that still captures my heart and soul, not the hijacked religion abused by sociopaths. I was ready: Column A, if it’s an Arab guy, the stereotype — he doesn’t represent who we are! Column B, the mad militiaman, shame on you America, for

thinking Muslims did it — for plastering that poor innocent Saudi kid’s picture across your newspapers and blogs. What I was not prepared for was Tamerlan and Dzhokhar — the white Chechen refugees who grew up in this country, the sons of a mechanic, the average-looking guys in backpacks and backward hats. When the names came out, I read through Dzhokhar’s Twitter — the pictures of his cat, his friends talking about “smoking mad blunts,” his love of lifeguarding. Who are these people, these murderers? Where do they get off being so damn normal?

Erik Rush of Fox News had already tweeted “Kill all the Muslims,” and a Bengali man was jumped and beaten in the streets of New York for “looking Arab.” And then Thursday night, there was Tamerlan, trading lead with Boston’s finest in the heart of a residential neighborhood, detonating IEDs like it was downtown Kabul — killing another police officer and endangering more innocent people. Something inside of me broke around 3 that morning. I realized no matter how hard I tried, no matter how much peace I preached, I could never reach into the hearts of evil men. I cannot

Just because a man sexually prefers other men doesn’t mean he is a ‘sissy’ and I find Blue’s ignorance to be absolutely infuriating. Also, just because a man is gay doesn’t mean he is going to try to jump his team mates when they are in the locker room or staying in hotels for away games. I find that argument to be equally ridiculous as the ‘sissy’

statement. All this being said, I applaud those players that hit the nail on the head by saying that sexual orientation doesn’t matter. If they are willing to play hard for LSU and be a proud tiger and team member then it doesn’t matter!” - Darren

Proposed bill won’t eliminate all driving distractions BWALLY’S WORLD BEN WALLACE Columnist

University of Northern Colorado student Alexander Heit was typing to an unidentified person April 3 when police say he lost control of his car and ran off the road.

Laws are meant to protect people from themselves, other people and in many cases, both. Some laws are written with this in mind, but in reality, they cannot be enforced properly without miniature hovering cameras that could report violations, issue citations and follow people around without human operation. A bill proposed by Sen. Dale Erdey, R-Livingston, happens to fall into this category. Senate Bill 147 would ban operating social media on any cell phone, tablet computer or similar device while driving. In theory, this is a brilliant idea, and we should all send Sen. Erdey a Baby Ruth and a gallon of ice cream to reward his vigilance against drivers who regularly endanger themselves, their passengers, other drivers, brave squirrels and innocent roadside vegetation. The damages of texting, tweeting, reading, mapping — practically anything besides concentrating on the road — while driving cannot be overstated. Most humans are terrible drivers even without a picture of a smiling cat in a goat’s lap distracting them from the minivan ahead whose driver just slammed on the

brakes because she almost ran a red light while scrolling through her Facebook News Feed. In a study of crash data collected from black boxes installed in cars, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found that 99 percent of drivers involved in collisions did not apply the brakes at full force before a crash. In fact, one-third of the drivers didn’t even touch the brakes. The issue with Sen. Erdey’s bill, along with most other laws banning any form of texting, talking or tweeting while driving, deals with enforcement. In Louisiana, for example, it is legal to scroll through your phone while driving to look up a contact’s number. It is also legal to talk on the phone, as long as you’re over the age of 18 and not a school bus driver. A police officer would have to drive next to the potential offender for quite some time before he or she could even make an educated guess on whether a law was being broken. Otherwise, these laws are only useful to further punish the distracted driver after a crash already happened. But something needs to be done because many drivers, myself included, are too dumb to realize the dangerous situations they create by doing anything besides driving while driving. And there are really only two possible solutions, neither of

which include Sen. Erdey’s bill. Firstly, laws could require automakers to install technology in cars that would prevent drivers from using their cellphone while the car is in motion. This technology already exists. The problem with that is one, many people would be livid; and two, there are too many cars already on the road without the technology. The better solution, and one that many people can get excited about, is to eliminate human error from the equation. Autonomous, or driverless, cars could be available to consumers by 2025, according to a recent article in The Wall Street Journal. In other words, text, tweet, talk, nap, eat and drink all you want, because you no longer have to do the driving. It’s a little scary, and I’m more than skeptical of the 2025 “guesstimate,” but until then, the only thing that can really protect drivers from themselves is their own conscience. And I don’t even trust my own conscience. Ben Wallace is a 22-year-old mass communication senior from Tyler, Texas.

Astronaut reminds us to remember Earth’s beauty SHUT UP, MEG MEGAN DUNBAR Columnist If there’s one thing everyone can agree on, it’s the awesomeness of nature. That’s not refutable, especially on a day like Earth Day. In almost every incidence otherwise — politics, parenting and religion — there are exceptions to the rules. No one is the same. Show anyone a picture posted by flight engineer Col. Chris Hadfield, and you’ll get similar responses from everyone: awe, surprise, wonder. From the International Space Station, Hadfield is currently snapping photos of the Earth from space and posting them to Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter daily. It’s a reminder of the respect and awe we should have for the planet. Recent shots include one of Amman, Jordan, lit up at night, a dry salt lake in the Australian outback and a breathtaking image of the moon rising over a cloudy Earth. Others showcase experiments in zero gravity and everyday

activity on the ship. This is exactly what the world needs. On Facebook, commenters flood his pictures with exclamations about watching the ISS cross the sky, knowing he’s up there or the interesting perspective the images bring to their desk jobs. Hadfield helps us see the world from a view we don’t get walking around campus every day. He broadens our perspective on life and reminds us of the bigger picture. There are some things better than the caterpillars infesting LSU’s campus or a slew of bomb threats and detonations. Somewhere in space, astronauts on the ISS are working toward a better future in which humans have the opportunity to explore other worlds, and Hadfield’s pictures are a reminder of that. Sure, you could look at Google Earth images and get the gist of the planet, but Hadfield is timely. He responds to current events around the world — most recently offering condolences to Boston. He frames his pictures with captions like “I’m not artistic, but I appreciate it when others are.”

Despite what he says, his photos are art, reminding us one snapshot at a time of the relative size of our own lives, and the gorgeous beast that is the planet. With all the recent media frenzy concerning Boston, the explosion in West Texas and the continuing tensions in the Middle East, it’s easy to forget we live on a beautiful conglomeration of evolution and geological upheaval. Hadfield reminds us. He pushes the beauty in our faces, and maybe for him it’s not a call to save the planet, but it inherently is. Each picture is a tip of the hat to the scientific luck of our planet. Despite all the issues humans have inflicted upon the earth, it still rebounds. This is not to say humanity should continue in this vein of destruction, but the negative isn’t all that exists. Hadfield addressed the idea of loneliness in space in a Reddit Ask Me Anything forum, saying loneliness is not about location, but mindset. Similarly, the way each person sees the world is not about what goes on holistically, but rather their unique perspective.


Astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield uploads his view of Boston from space on April 16, the day after the Boston Marathon bombing.

Hadfield offering up his perspective for public use is something we should take advantage to remember there’s something more than us in the world. Happy Earth Day. Megan Dunbar is a 19-year-

old English Greenville, S.C.
