New-look offense to start SEC play against Auburn on Sat. Marcus Rodrigue Sports Contributor

As the clock ran out in JordanHare Stadium on Sept. 22, 2012, ESPN flashed an image of LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger shaking his head. He wasn’t lamenting a loss: No. 2 LSU remained unbeaten by squeaking out a 12-10 road win against division rival Auburn. But on that night in east Alabama, the LSU offense was a paradigm of offensive ineptitude, amassing 351 total yards while scoring only 10 offensive points following an early safety. Mettenberger, a then-junior making his first Southeastern Conference

start, fumbled twice and threw for 169 yards and no touchdowns against a team that won only three games last year. But what happened at Auburn nearly a year ago is a far cry from the 2013 version of the No. 6 LSU offense. The Tigers (3-0) averaged 488 yards and 46 points per game through its first three contests, and it aims to maintain those numbers as it opens its SEC docket Saturday against Auburn (3-0, 1-0) at 6:45 p.m. in Tiger Stadium. “Guys are more mature and are a year older,” Mettenberger said. “We’ve got a great coaching staff that’s helped us along the way. We’re just executing and performing at a

high level, and we need to continue doing that.” Mettenberger’s evolution has been the catalyst behind the dramatic shift in LSU’s offense. The senior quarterback ranks first in the SEC and third in the country with a 205.3 passer rating, and he is the first LSU signal-caller to throw for nine touchdowns through the first three games of a season. The sudden rise in Mettenberger’s production, coupled with offensive coordinator Cam Cameron’s willingness to throw the ball down field, allowed LSU to find an impressive offensive balance this season.

INTERNATIONAL Pope criticizes church emphasis on abortion & gays, small-minded rules VATICAN CITY (AP) — Signaling a dramatic shift in Vatican tone, Pope Francis said the Catholic Church had become obsessed by “small-minded rules” about how to be faithful and that pastors should instead emphasize compassion over condemnation when discussing the social issues of abortion, gays and contraception. The pope’s blunt message six months into his papacy was sure to resonate in the U.S. and around the globe as bishops who have focused much of their preaching on such hotbutton issues are asked to act more as pastors of wounded souls. British drivers can pay for parking with chestnuts, exchange temporary LONDON (AP) — It’s the next best thing to parking that costs peanuts: parking that costs chestnuts. A company that runs parking lots in the English cities of Leeds and Manchester is temporarily letting drivers pay with the dark brown seeds that fall from horse chestnut trees each autumn. Town Centre Car Parks is accepting horse chestnuts for parking time at a rate of 20 pence (32 cents) apiece. So far it has collected about 1,500 of the nuts, known as conkers after the traditional schoolyard game in which children try to smash them.

It was the biggest known tragedy caused by twin weekend storms that struck Mexico, creating floods and landslides across the nation and killing at least 97 people as of Thursday — not counting those missing in La Pintada.

Colorado flood evacuees get first view of aftermath, tight security

Former chief candidate alleges sex discrimination, sues city-parish

LYONS, Colo. (AP) — Residents displaced by last week’s flooding in the Colorado canyon town of Lyons were allowed past National Guard roadblocks Thursday to find a scene of tangled power lines, downed utility poles, mud-caked homes and vehicles, and work crews furiously clearing debris and trying to restore power, water and sewer service. Under tight security, hundreds of Lyons evacuees were given just two hours to check on their homes and leave. On Sept. 12, the St. Vrain River destroyed dozens of homes, a trailer park, two town bridges and sections of the only road in and out of the picturesque town of 1,600 framed by sandstone cliffs.

(AP) — A former candidate for the Baton Rouge police chief’s post has sued the city-parish government and Mayor-President Kip Holden in federal court, alleging she was a victim of sex discrimination. April M. Overman, now a resident of Mississippi, filed the suit in U.S. District Court in Baton Rouge. In her suit, Overman claims she was the most qualified candidate for the chief’s position and alleges that she “was asked gender-charged questions” in several interviews.

BOSTON (AP) — A fund for a homeless man who turned in a backpack with more than $40,000 inside has collected more than $100,000, an overwhelming response that’s a “statement to everyone in America,” said the man who started the donation drive. Glen James notified a police officer on Saturday after he found a backpack containing $2,400 in cash and almost $40,000 in traveler’s checks at the South Bay Mall.

(AP) — A Kansas man whose online lecture about the Bible and same-sex relationships gained considerable attention has gathered about 50 Christians from around the country to delve into his belief that the Scriptures do not condemn homosexuality as a sexual orientation. Matthew Vines, of Wichita, grew up attending a conservative evangelical Presbyterian church in the city and relies heavily on intensive study of the Bible for his presentations.

BAKER (AP) — Dairy Fresh, which has operated a milk bottling plant in Baker since 1985, plans to close the facility in mid-November. Officials tell The Advocate the move will affect about 40 employees as the company consolidates its operations into its Lafayette bottling facility. Fred Stern, a spokesman for Borden Dairy, which bought Dairy Fresh in about 2009, said the decision to consolidate operations in Lafayette was made to improve operating efficiencies and enhance competitiveness.

Union increases dining hours Desiree Robertson Contributing Writer

Food locations in the Union are now open later than previous semesters to accommodate commuter students, according to Don Koshis, LSU Dining director of operations. In the past, most vendors closed around 4 p.m., but now most have extended their hours to at least 6 p.m. Chick-fil-A and Papa John’s in the Student Union’s Tiger Lair are now open until 10:30 p.m. The change in hours of operation times was to allow students the opportunity to plan where they want to eat ahead of time. Before, it was hard for students to plan because hours were not consistent, according to LSU Dining Marketing Director Dean Samuels.

While in previous semesters, vender hours of operation varied depending on the holiday; hours will now remain the same for all holidays, Samuels said. Students are also seeing the benefits of the new changes. Extending operation hours gives students more dinner options than just the dining halls, according to animal sciences junior Maribeth Broussard. Animal science junior Alex Brown said the changes also help when the dining halls are closed at night and students need a study break. LSU Dining has also increased the number of food locations opened on game days from five to eight and is keeping them open until a hour before kick off. The 459 and The Five dining halls will be opened 15 more

days than last semester, most of which fall on University breaks like Labor Day and fall break, Samuels said. LSU Dining also extended Bayou Bistreaux hours from lunch time to 6 p.m. and will offer special dinner options where customers can buy a rotisserie chicken along with sides in addition to the full menu. The program was designed to give students and faculty more options for their evening meeting that are on campus Samuels said.

University and AgCenter facilities merge as joint museum and garden Rebranding could mean more tourism Olivia McClure Contributing Writer

The Burden Museum and Gardens launched Thursday, combining the LSU Rural Life Museum, the LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens at Burden and the Windrush Gardens into a single marketing effort that will better promote the 440-acre property as a tourist destination for both cultural and natural beauty, according to LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens Director Jeff Kuehny. Burden, located on Essen Lane, is home to the museum and gardens as well as AgCenter horticulture research and extension efforts. The launch means the three facilities and their programs will complement one another as part of a unified attraction, which better fulfills the gardens’ mission to promote the value of plants, Kuehny said. “That mission is to promote the importance of plants and the environment to the spiritual, physical and mental well-being of the community of Baton Rouge ... but also the state and the world,”

While Mettenberger aired it out for 269.3 yards a game, LSU’s stable of running backs stampeded opponents to the tune of almost 219 yards per contest. “We’re a lot better and a lot different,” sophomore left guard Vadal Alexander said. “We’re clicking on all cylinders right now. I feel much more confident going into this game than last year’s.” Besides scoring points, the offense will be tasked with sustaining drives to keep the LSU defense well rested. Auburn coach Gus Malzahn’s up-tempo spread offense presents the first serious challenge for the young LSU defenders, and Alexander recognized the importance of giving them extended breaks on the sideline. “It’s very important for us to be on the field in general,” Alexander said. “Both sides of the ball are very important, so if we stay on the field, we help each other out. If they get 3-and-outs, they help us out. The more we have the ball the better because we want to score points.” A major concern for SEC teams making the shift from non-conference teams to conference foes is the increased physicality, but Alexander said it wouldn’t be a problem for him and his fellow linemen.

Tigers aim to improve on record After posting a losing record in the Southeastern Conference and missing out on an NCAA bid last season, the LSU soccer team will kick off its conference campaign Saturday night at Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tenn. The Tigers (4-3-1) grabbed five SEC victories in 2012, a step down from their eight conference wins and SEC West title in 2011. Vanderbilt (3-3-2) is also aiming to improve, as the Commodores found themselves at the bottom of the eastern division with only two SEC wins last season. “If you can go get three points in the opening weekend, especially on the road, that’s a good kick start to the season,” said LSU coach Brian Lee. “The SEC is – top to bottom – probably the strongest it’s ever been, and every game is going to be a dogfight.” The most recent matchup between LSU and Vanderbilt was a dogfight indeed, as the Tigers eked out a double-overtime victory, 1-0, in Baton Rouge last season.

Quit giving the Heisman to quarterbacks HUTCHDOWN DANCING SPENCER HUTCHINSON Deputy Sports Editor Who’s winning the Heisman Trophy this season? Though it isn’t certain, it will probably be a quarterback. After all, only one non-quarterback has claimed the honor since 1999. That number used to be two, but Reggie Bush happened. Here’s hoping that trend breaks this season, because it’s getting pretty ridiculous at this point. It’s boring going into each season with a shortlist of quarterbacks from the best teams in the nation and just waiting around to see which one doesn’t blow it enough so he can be handed the trophy.

Sure, sometimes there are wrinkles like Johnny Manziel bursting onto the scene last year and Mark Ingram hoisting in 2009, but for the most part, isn’t the Heisman pretty useless? If defensive players don’t even get a legitimate chance unless they have a fake dead girlfriend, is it really an award for the best collegiate football player, or can it just be renamed the best offensive player award? But wait, that wouldn’t work either, because unless a receiver logs the most special teams stats anyone has ever seen, he probably won’t be considered. Oh look, I didn’t even mention offensive linemen, but since when is that new? I’ll probably be let down again this season with Manziel’s name still being thrown around. He lost a tough game against Alabama last week, but if he mimics his numbers from last season, it

LSU lost the Friday game on consecutive weekends before coming back to claim victories on each Sunday, and Lee said he’s been impressed with the Tigers’ ability to rebound after a loss. “We’re really resilient, and the kids have good character,” Lee said. “So, when their backs were against the wall both weekends, they stepped up. Their quality of competition has been good, and we’ve also learned the lesson that if we’re

Friday, September 20, 2013 not totally queued in and prepared to play, our chances of winning are really going to shrink.” Lee said the difficulty of LSU’s non-conference schedule should have his team prepared to face tougher SEC foes. The Tigers’ non-SEC slate featured two ranked teams and several 2012 conference champions, and LSU’s non-conference opponents are a combined 33-20-8. But junior midfielder Jodi Calloway acknowledged playing in the SEC is a totally different monster. “The SEC is very competitive, and it only gets harder every year,” Calloway said. “So we’re going to come out and play hard every game like it’s our last.” Lee lauded the way the Tigers have executed his gameplan through the first month of the

season and said he is pleased with their ability to keep possession of the ball. The next stage in LSU’s development will be making those possessions pay off in the attacking third, Lee said Sophomore midfielder Fernanda Piña, who leads the Tigers in scoring this year with three goals, has made the most of her opportunities near the goal. Piña and her teammates will need to continue capitalizing if LSU wants to come home with a victory on Saturday. “It’s extremely important to start SEC play with a win,” Piña said. “It doesn’t matter which team it is, we have to win each game and be prepared for each team.” Contact Marcus Rodrigue at

implementation of the hurry-up, no-huddle offense from his time at Arkansas State before coming to Auburn. With the Red Wolves, Malzahn’s offense ranked No. 35 in the country in 2012 with 2.52 plays per minute, 0.3 plays per minute faster than LSU last season. Through the first three games of the season, Auburn averaged 68.3 plays per game, which isn’t much more than LSU’s 63 plays per game, but the LSU defense is still preparing for a heavy workload on Saturday. “I think it’s something that we’ve practiced, in my opinion,

every day since probably two springs ago,” said LSU coach Les Miles. “There is always a piece of every practice donated to an up tempo style of offense. So we feel like we’ve got a handle on it; it just needs to be made perfect.” Two seasons ago, Miles led his team to Dallas to play possibly one of the fastest teams in the country — Oregon. It’s been a long two seasons since the Tigers’ 40-27 win against the Ducks in the Cowboys Classic and LSU is by no means the same team, but a few LSU players can’t help but recall the 2011 matchup. “It’s something really we’ve worked on ever since I can

The Daily Reveille remember prepping for Oregon,” Allen said. “We’ve kind of kept that true to our practice regimen. We’ve always made sure we stay on top of tempo and we go at a faster pace than the refs would have us go in a game so that way when we come to that situation we’re ready for it.” Senior linebacker Lamin Barrow said he’s looking forward to playing an offense like Auburn’s this weekend and isn’t shy about his affinity for defending the run. Barrow said he views Auburn as a typical power team, just run at a faster pace than most. Auburn

page 7 also mixes in several option and reverse plays in an attempt to catch the outside corner — something Barrow remembers seeing a few times last season as well. “The thing I remember about those games is teams like this who have those three back sets have a lot of motion to try and get your people outside of the box and hit you with an option or a reverse or even with a power,” Barrow said. “It’s hard to read a power with so many guys moving around the backfield.” Allen echoed his teammate in how difficult it can be to defend

Compass will lead good teachers out of state BRACE YOURSELF Ryan McGehee Columnist So, you want to be a teacher. Fantastic! Educating, be it at the primary or secondary level, is one of the noblest professions one can undertake. After earning your bachelor’s and master’s degrees and earning your certification, you should be more than qualified to mold minds. But with the passage of Governor Bobby Jindal’s education reform, you’ll then want to seek employment at a private school or in another state. The prime component of the reform’s teacher evaluation system, Compass, will do more to harm Louisiana teachers than any good the state plans it to do. Now, everyone agrees students deserve the best teachers, but how can we judge who is or is not a great educator? Before the passage of the reform, teachers would be evaluated solely by observation of their principal, who would judge whether or not teachers were adequately following their curriculum and effectively conferring information to their students. Now, only 50 percent of evaluations are based on observation, with the other 50 based on standardized test scores and growth, meaning not only must students perform well on state tests, but

they must have marked improvement for their teachers to be rated as good educators. The three possible ratings a teacher can earn are highly effective, effective and ineffective. This new method places an unfair burden on teachers, who are forced to rush through an entire year’s curriculum before spring, all in an effort to teach a test, as opposed to actually educating. Imagine a class, almost equally divided between advanced students and averageto-low-achieving students. If the average students were to perform markedly better on the

standardized test than the year prior, but the advanced ones were to perform the same, or even slightly poorer, that teacher would be labeled ineffective, regardless if the advanced students received high scores. Two years of being labeled ineffective will earn you a lovely, well-written notice of termination, then you might as well throw your degrees in the trash because you are now out of a career. What’s more, tenure is now given based on the Compass teacher ratings, as opposed to degree level or years of experience. Even then, only

teachers rated highly effective can be eligible for tenure, and if an already tenured teacher is rated ineffective once, they are then moved to a probationary status. Now, a Teach for America instructor who does not have to be a certified teacher can earn tenure over someone with a master’s degree and fifteen years of experience.

Wrong. What this will ultimately lead to is higher educated teachers taking jobs at private schools or moving out of state, leaving Louisiana students with pseudo-educators whose sole purpose is to teach how to take a standardized test. However, this shift in favorability towards TFA instructors is unsurprising, given that the Governor’s newly handpicked state superintendent of education, John White, used to run Chicago’s TFA chapter before eventually ending up in Louisiana. Everyone knows that our schools need help, and that students deserve better, but this new method of evaluation is going to screw good teachers out of careers and dissuade potentially good educators from entering the profession, leaving students to languish in mediocrity. In fact, I encourage anyone seeking to be a teacher, or any teachers with their master’s young enough to start over to abandon Louisiana public schools post-haste.

Positive body image can be expressed with clothes on THE UNRIDDLER Christine Guttery Columnist Met with a mixture of approval laughter, and contempt, a Reveille article about an anonymous LSU nudist, “The Naked Truth,” definitely attracted attention Tuesday. Personally, I am skeptical of the idea that partial or full nudity is empowering. If a man claims to associate with nudity because he accepts his own body, then I would have to wonder why he feels it necessary to publicly reveal it. If a person is truly self-confident, he doesn’t need to seek affirmation, attention, or acceptance from anyone else. There are valid reasons why confident, self-respecting people choose to value modesty, which in this context is defined as “propriety in dress, speech, or conduct,” according to Merriam-Webster online dictionary. One reason for practicing modesty is self-respect. Though we sometimes wish it were not so, we live in a world where image does matter. And showing more skin

attracts attention — the kind of attention that is superficial. For my own sake, and for the sake of those who might be tempted to think inappropriate sexual thoughts toward me, I choose not to wear certain clothing that might encourage that. Ultimately, each person is responsible for his or her own

thoughts and actions towards others. But wearing less clothing often makes it more difficult than it should be for us to value one another as people rather than as sexual objects. We shouldn’t give everyone the right to our sexuality, even if only visual. The nature of sex itself is valuable and sacred. Our sexuality

is intimately personal enough to be protected — not exposed or treated as commonplace entertainment. We all know the thoughts that are probably going through a guy’s head when he sees a woman with her chest hanging out of her shirt. That’s why dads send their preteen daughters back to their bedrooms to change clothes when they come downstairs wearing a low-cut top. Sadie Robertson, daughter of Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson, along with designer Sherri Hill, is bringing modesty into the spotlight with a line of non-revealing yet fun and fashionable prom dresses, according to an article by the Huffington Post. “Me and my mother and my grandma went to Sherri Hill’s place and we all picked out ‘daddy approved length,’” said Sadie. “She also added a couple inches to some that we loved but weren’t modest.” I know from personal experience that it can be difficult finding dresses at a length I am comfortable with. By making modest dresses more available, Sadie’s line may encourage more girls to dress modestly. And in the end, modesty isn’t simply about how much skin is or isn’t exposed. It’s about respecting

oneself, others, sexuality and personal convictions – not only on the outside, but also in thought and intent. And while modesty is usually considered a female issue, it’s not gender-specific. For men, practicing modesty is often less about clothing and more about the way they interact with others. So is your self-worth directly related to how much skin you’re willing to reveal? Of course not, because beauty and worth run much deeper than body-acceptance. Whether you cover yourself head to toe or wear nothing, and whether you dress in fancy clothes or in rags, you are incredibly valuable simply because you were created and given the gift of life. This is the heart of modesty, and it is a lifestyle that reflects that heart in word, in deed and also in dress. Christine Guttery is a 20-year-old English junior from Baton Rouge.

Students should focus on wealth education early SHARE THE WEALTH Jay Meyers Columnist As University students, oftentimes our mindset, at least from what I’ve experienced, extends very little beyond what happens to be on our plate for the week. Ever since Sunday, for example, an ISDS exam and our first Southeastern Conference game against Auburn have more or less been my main subjects of thought. To be sure, this isn’t always the case. There are several critical things to be concerned with in the long run, such as graduating, staying healthy and finding a job. One thing, however, that deserves some long-term food for thought is beginning an education in building wealth, particularly when it comes to investing disposable income in the stock market. Some may find this notion laughable — we’re all just broke college kids, so why start bothering yourself now with thinking about how and where to invest? The answer is simple: Time. Indeed, the fact that, as students, we presumably have our entire life ahead of us puts us at a distinct competitive advantage against, say, your typical middle-aged investor. Basically, if we begin the journey toward smart investment now,

the potential for financial gain is tremendous. Importantly, it doesn’t take an expert to discern between companies that are “winners” and “losers.” But before you find yourself tempted to invest in the upcoming Twitter initial public offering or spend copious amounts of time trying to identify the next hot tech company, here are a few suggestions for more surefire ways to become super-wealthy. Arguably the most important recommendation is to learn from the best. Undoubtedly, that title belongs to legendary investor Warren Buffett. Nicknamed the “Oracle of Omaha,” Buffett, 83, is widely considered to be the most successful investor of all-time, consistently ranking among the world’s wealthiest people. Success is great, but the main reason why Buffett is the best guide when it comes to picking stocks is because his investing philosophy is so incredibly simple. Buffett, for the most part, buys stock in very old companies. Typically, these businesses are in a relatively stable environment and benefit from something Warren calls a “long-term durable competitive advantage.” More importantly, Buffett only buys companies that he can understand, which is what he likes to call “staying in his circle of competence.”

What this basically means is a company that has been selling a brand-name product or service for an extensive amount of time, usually over 50 years. “I look for businesses in which I think I can predict what they’re going to look like in ten to fifteen years’ time. Take Wrigley’s chewing gum. I don’t think the Internet is going to change how people chew gum,” Buffet told former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates in 1998. If this doesn’t make sense yet, think about it. The economics of selling a unique, brand-name product or service is crazy good: as Buffett likes to put it, because you “own a piece of the consumer’s mind,” that enables the company to either charge more for their goods or sell more. Coca-Cola is the perfect example of Buffett’s genius at work. Coke is a product that has taken over the planet. The company markets more than 100 different beverage products in more than 200 countries throughout the world, and sells, on average, more than 1.6 billion servings of its products everyday. Buffett started making his first investments in Coca-Cola in 1987, purchasing 200 millions shares for approximately $1.299 billion. Today, those same 200 million shares have ballooned to a value of approximately $13 billion. Now, of course mere mortals like us don’t have billions of dollars to work with, but I’d like to

wager that if you put a few thousand dollars in Coke today and held the investment for 20 years, you’d have quite a chunk of change. Here are three other companies with generally similar business models to Coke that Buffett has made billions in profits from: Kraft Foods, Johnson & Johnson and The Washington Post. All of them are old companies in old industries that generate predictably high returns, so long as you hold them long enough. In these economically uncertain times, a rich education in how

to create wealth for yourself can make all the difference. Jay Meyers is a 20-year-old economics junior from Shreveport.

Why are they calling it a “pedestrian corridor” when really it’s a “construction parking and dumping area”?? _____________________________ Dear LSU, what’s the point of Moodle when each professor has a different website for homework and quizzes? Doing homework on webassign and other websites as such is for the convenience of the PROFESSOR! It saves the professor time from having to grade hand-written homework. So, if it’s for the convenience of the professor, WHY ARE WE PAYING! It isn’t right! Quizzes are FREE through Moodle, so why not just assign them to us there? A student should have the option of doing handwritten homework if they don’t want to pay for a homework website. Plain and simple. Submitting homework that way doesn’t even help us. We simply click random answers for the ones we don’t know until we guessed the right one. First they make these “class specific” book packages to prevent us from buying cheaper alternatives online, and now THIS! Get it together LSU! If your professors are too lazy to grade handwritten homework, make THEM pay, not ME! You guys are taking everything natural out of the learning process. Everything has become computerized! It’s a disgrace. We don’t learn that way. Sincerely, Ashli Auguillard.

won’t even matter. Then there’s Clemson’s Tahj Boyd, Ohio State’s Braxton Miller, Oregon’s Marcus Mariota and my personal favorite, Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater. All quarterbacks who could each easily lead their respective teams to undefeated regular seasons. The conferences those four play in are all more stat padding friendly than the Southeastern Conference, so don’t expect their names to go away anytime soon.

Put them together with Johnny Football, and that’s five legitimate quarterback Heisman candidates before looking at any other positions. If the apocalypse happens and Manziel, Boyd, Miller, Mariota and Bridgewater all fall out of contention, then maybe, just maybe, a non-quarterback could have a chance. That non-quarterback might just be in our own back yard too. If Odell Beckham Jr. keeps averaging 110 receiving yards and a touchdown per game while

page 11 returning another four or five special teams touchdowns, he might be the guy. But then again, they’d probably just give Mettenberger the credit. Spencer Hutchinson is a 21-year-old mass communication senior from West Monroe.
