The LSU football team won its season opener this weekend, but the victory was far from sweet. LSU lost a 20-point lead after North Carolina scored 14 points in the fourth quarter. The Tar Heels drove to the Tigers’ 6-yard line with six seconds left but failed to score a game-tying touchdown, letting LSU escape with a 30-24 win.

Keith Urban performs May 29 at the Bayou Country Superfest in Tiger Stadium.
Two of three necessary organizations for the Bayou Country Superfest have signed on for the next edition of the event.
Both the Mayor’s Ofﬁce and the Baton Rouge Area Convention and Visitors Bureau are on board for the event and have agreed to put up $300,000 each, said Paul Arrigo, president and CEO of BRACVB. The third group, the Louisiana Ofﬁce of Tourism, is waiting for a permanent lieutenant governor to be elected before agreeing to sponsor the event, Arrigo said.
The lieutenant governor runs the Louisiana Ofﬁce of Tourism. “We are exactly where we were last year,” Arrigo said. “We are on board, as well as the city.” Arrigo said the venue and talent for last year’s event were selected in October, and organizers hope for the same schedule for this year.

Manship Apparel company first School to pay living wage searches for new dean Frederick Holl Staff Writer
Linden Uter Contributing Writer
A 13-member search committee is still in the process of ﬁnding a new dean for the Manship School of Mass Communication after sifting through a list of 21 applicants at a meeting Friday. During the summer, the committee sent e-mails to potential candidates to ﬁll the position of former dean and current provost Jack Hamilton, said Gaines Foster, search committee co-chair and interim dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Ten minutes into the meeting Friday, all except one member of the committee moved to proceed in an executive session, where the committee privately discussed the professional competence of the current candidates. But the committee isn’t ﬁnished contacting potential suitors for the position, said Jack Weiss, chancellor of the Paul M. Hebert Law Center and search committee co-chair. “Although the outcome of people who responded to the e-mail was somewhat disappointing, perhaps it should not have been surprising,” Foster said. The committee has contacted former deans and chairs of the Manship School, Foster said. Weiss said the committee will meet sometime in the next couple of weeks for further discussion. Astrid Merget, former executive vice chancellor and provost, appointed the search committee. Ralph Izard is serving as interim dean during the search.
Every fall, University students ﬂock to retailers around campus to buy clothes and show off their Tiger pride, but they rarely think of the people who make the products they buy. One company is trying to change that. Alta Gracia Apparel, a subsidiary of Knights Apparel, the leading supplier of collegiate-logo apparel in America, does what no other apparel manufacturer in the world does: pay a living wage, said Knights Apparel CEO Joseph Bozich. The roughly $500 a month Alta Gracia pays its workers is two to three times the minimum wage in the Dominican Republic, Bozich said. Despite paying higher wages and providing better working conditions, Alta Gracia apparel prices are comparable to premium brands like Nike. Alta Gracia T-shirts and hoodies are currently on sale in the LSU Bookstore for $18 to $20 and $35 to $40, respectively. The difference between Alta Gracia and other factories in the Dominican Republic is huge, said Alta Gracia Worker Union President Maritza Vargas. “All four of my children shared one room. Now we can have our own space. Where I lived before we shared a bathroom with our neighbors,” Vargas said through a translator. A living wage is generally deﬁned as a wage consisting of enough money for a worker to adequately provide food and shelter for their family. In the case of Alta Gracia, the living wage was calculated by the Worker Rights Consortium, an independent labor rights organization that focuses on collegiate-licensed
apparel, said Theresa Haas, WRC director of communications. The WRC also conducts testing of the Alta Gracia factory and for the ﬁrst time is putting a tag on the apparel showing the WRC’s approval of working conditions, Haas said. For Alta Gracia to be successful, it must meet the same quality standards of the brands it is competing with and should convey the message of what makes the product different, said Chuanlan Liu, assistant professor of apparel merchandising. “You deﬁnitely want your market to be aware of what you’re doing,” Liu said. Liu said a premium brand’s success can be hard to ﬁgure out because people tend to buy the cheapest clothes they like with the intention to buy something new when styles change. Initial sales of the Alta Gracia line have been normal, according to LSU Bookstore General Merchandise Manager Jennifer Madden. The brand hopes to bring the same opportunities to more than its roughly 120 employees in Villa Altagracia, but it all depends on the students, said Donnie Hodge, president and COO of Knights Apparel.

LSU School of Art hosts work of deceased professor Exhibit honors Robert Hausey
‘[The exhibit] gives a glimmer of his accomplishments.’
The LSU School of Art Glassell Gallery unveiled its newest exhibit Saturday commemorating a University art professor who died last fall. Robert Hausey, a professor at the University for 32 years, died Oct. 16 from suspected complications with diabetes at the age of 59. “He was extraordinarily gentle — just a really gentle guy — laid back in that particularly Louisiana way,” said art professor Rick Ortner, a long-time friend and colleague of Hausey. The exhibit isn’t complete, as there are a number of Hausey’s paintings absent from the show, but it “gives a glimmer of his accomplishments,” Ortner said. One of the paintings missing from the gallery is the only collaborative work Hausey ever did, left unﬁnished after his untimely death, according to his former student and collaborator Jonathan Mayers who was set to work with Hausey. Mayers recalled the painting

UNC at Tigers’ heels in sloppy win

LSU redshirt freshman defensive end Sam Montgomery (99) lunges for a loose ball Saturday during the Tigers’ 30-24 win against North Carolina in Atlanta.
LSU escapes a 13-short Tar Heels squad, 30-24, with goal-line stand ATLANTA — The 2010 LSU football team faced several question marks heading into Saturday’s season opener against North Carolina after a 2009 stint filled with inconsistency and the inability to close out games.

‘I can tell you that our football team won ... in a very sloppy fashion.’ Les Miles, LSU football coach
Eight first-time starters took the field for LSU on Saturday against North Carolina, but the team lost one of them to injury for at least six weeks. Junior guard Will Blackwell broke his ankle on LSU’s first offensive play Saturday and did not return. Junior center T-Bob Hebert replaced him at guard in light of the blow to the offensive line. LSU coach Les Miles said Monday that Blackwell’s injury hurts because the team is losing “a tremendous leader in that line.” “Will will be lost for a significant length of time,” Miles said. “He would have eventually matured into a really good player. [Sophomore guard] Matt Branch, [redshirt freshman guard] Josh Williford and [Hebert], all of those will get snaps inside there that will fit to replace what is an injured starter.” Hebert said he felt comfortable stepping in for Blackwell and will embrace the role in Blackwell’s absence. “I was able to do it just because playing center, you have to know all the positions,” Hebert said. “During the game I wasn’t having to waste a lot of energy from a mental aspect so I could focus on doing my blocks BLACKWELL, see page 7
Patrick Peterson enters discussion for Heisman Trophy Miles: Cornerback could play offense Rob Landry Sports Contributor
ATLANTA — On Halloween night 1959, LSU running back Billy Cannon cemented his place in LSU history with an 89-yard punt return for a touchdown that not only etched his name in college football lore but secured him LSU’s first — and only — Heisman Trophy. The Tigers have not had many serious Heisman Trophy contenders since. Until now. With 4:13 remaining in the second quarter Saturday, LSU junior cornerback Patrick Peterson
caught a punt at the 13-yard line. He weaved through the coverage and scampered 87 yards untouched for a touchdown. Peterson’s touchdown gave LSU a 23-10 lead in its 30-24 victory against North Carolina and thrust him into the midst of early season Heisman discussion. “I don’t know the validity, honestly, of making a guy a Heisman Trophy candidate because that’s something that happens over the course of time,” said LSU coach Les Miles. “I would say, very honestly, that he had the kind of night tonight, on a national level, which would put him in line for any national award, including the very highest.” The Pompano Beach, Fla., native totaled 257 all-purpose yards on the night — a new LSU record and 9 yards short of tying the
Southeastern Conference record set by Mississippi State’s Nick Turner in 2003. Between his return yardage and his defensive prowess in the secondary, Peterson has proven to be an all-around threat, much like 1997 Heisman Trophy winner Charles Woodson. Woodson became the first defensive player to win college football’s most coveted prize by being a true jack of all trades, playing cornerback, wide receiver and punt returner for Michigan. But Peterson has a tough road to joining Woodson among college football’s immortal. Woodson had eight interceptions and 47 tackles on defense, 36 punt returns for 301 yards and one touchdown as a return PETERSON, see page 7

Tigers sweep second tournament of season at TCU Mark Clements Sports Contributor
The LSU volleyball team swept the second straight tournament of its season last weekend, defeating Central Arkansas (3-0), TCU (3-2) and Alcorn State (3-0) to claim the TCU Molten Invitational title. The No. 21-ranked Lady Tigers extended their winning streak to six games and are 6-0 for the first time since 2007. Freshman middle blocker Desiree Elliott and junior middle blocker Michele Williams earned AllTournament Team accolades, while senior outside hitter Angela Bensend was named Tournament MVP. “I can’t say enough about Angela’s performance,” said LSU coach Fran Flory. “She was the heart of our team and did a little bit of everything throughout. She was the stabilizing force that led our young team to the win.”
Bensend finished the tournament with a team-leading 39 kills for the weekend, including a career-best 20 kills to go along with a career-best 26 digs in the match against TCU. Bensend, whose 20-20 effort was the first since former Tiger Marina Skender’s in 2006, said the competition during the weekend was a challenge for the team. “It was a great match and a learning experience for us,” Bensend said. “We knew we had to stay confident, and we persevered in the end.” Williams, coming off her tournament MVP performance last weekend, had 12 blocks in the tournament, including eight against TCU, while chalking up a careerhigh 16 kills. Following a great attacking performance in last weekend’s tournament, Flory said the offense shined again. “Our team put a lot of balls away, and I was proud of the hitting
percentage because it showed our offensive efficiency,” Flory said after the Central Arkansas game. “This is a great type of match, both style and tempo, for our team to play. It will help us prepare for the rest of our season.” The biggest struggle for the Tigers came against TCU. LSU pulled ahead 2-0 (27-25, 25-19) in two tough clashes and looked poised to win in straight sets. The Horned Frogs fought back to take the next two sets (20-25, 18-25), bringing the duel to a rubber match. The Lady Tigers fought back to take the final set (15-11) and win the opening match of the tournament. Flory said the match was a good barometer for the team before entering Southeastern Conference play. “Our team showed great resilience, and I was impressed with how we fought back,” Flory said. “We chose to come to this tournament because TCU is a tough place to play.
LSU falls to Wake Forest, Va. Tech Rowan Kavner Sports Writer
LSU may have topped an Atlantic Coast Conference team in football, but the ACC got the best of the Tigers in soccer this weekend. The No. 23 LSU soccer team fell to Virginia Tech, 1-0, on Sunday, two days after losing to No. 16 Wake Forest, 3-1, in WinstonSalem, N.C. The Hokies (3-3) and the Tigers (1-3) were scoreless after the first half. It took until the 67th minute for Virginia Tech freshman forward Katie DeTuro to notch the first goal of the game. It was all the Hokies needed to pull out the 1-0 win. The Tigers managed only one shot on goal and three shots total. “Virginia Tech’s just a little more physical and a little more direct, and they were able to limit us with chances,” said LSU coach Brian Lee. “Our forwards just
couldn’t hold the ball against their pressure.” Virginia Tech’s win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Hokies, while the Tigers are now on a three-game losing streak of their own. “We’ve got to upgrade our competitiveness with the young players,” Lee said. “They’re still a little shell-shocked with the physicality of college soccer.” Lee said he is still tweaking the lineup to get the best 11 on the field. Players who normally played one position last year may need to find a new niche this season. He said he also needs to prepare his younger players for the mental and physical grinds of college soccer. “Sunday was the first time we had to turn around in two days and play again, and we didn’t deal with that so well,” Lee said. The Tigers suffered a 3-1 loss at the hands of freshman forward Rachel Nuzzolese and No. 16
Wake Forest on Friday night. The Demon Deacons (4-1) got on the board first with a goal from sophomore defender Caralee Keppler off Nuzzolese’s corner kick in the 36th minute. Wake held a 1-0 lead into halftime, but LSU tied the game, 1-1, with a goal by freshman forward Kaley Blades in the 73rd minute. It only took Wake Forest two more minutes to notch the gamewinning score as freshman forward Katie Stengel buried a goal on a through ball from Nuzzolese. Nuzzolese then put the game away, 3-1, with a goal of her own in the 90th minute. She is the first Demon Deacon in school history to score a goal in the first four games of her career.

They’re all over you, very similar to a lot of SEC venues.” The Tigers rode senior setter Brittney Johnson’s birthday performance of 23 assists against Alcorn State to cap off a second straight tournament victory. Flory said the Invitational was another positive step for the team going forward. “Two tournament championships during the first two weekends is certainly a nice tribute to the work ethic and type of players we have in our program,” Flory said. “We learned a few things about ourselves, and I’m excited for them going forward.”
The team travels back to Baton Rouge for its much awaited homeopener this weekend in the Tiger Classic. LSU will take on North Carolina on Friday and Rice and New Mexico State on Saturday. “This is very challenging tournament ahead,” Flory said. “All of these teams were in the NCAA tournament last season and have chances to do well in their respective conferences again. We expect three tough matches against three well-coached teams.” Contact Mark Clements at firstname.lastname@example.org

from the Tar Heel sideline, as replays appeared to show Pianalto being held by LSU junior linebacker Stefoin Francois. The ofﬁcials disagreed, though, leaving a discouraged Pianalto face down on the Georgia Dome turf. An irate Yates threw his hands up in the air, then turned to the turf and pounded it with a clenched ﬁst in disgust. On the previous play, Yates nearly connected with Pianalto in the back of the end zone for the gamewinning score. The throw was a little behind Pianalto, who couldn’t hang on with LSU senior cornerback Jai Eugene closing in. “I can tell you that our football team won a game tonight in a very sloppy fashion, and certainly penalties cost us,” said LSU coach Les Miles. It was a tale of two halves for LSU. The Tigers plateaued following a 30-point ﬁrst half outbreak, leaving UNC with ample time to mount its furious comeback. In the second half, the Tigers had two three-and-outs, two fumbles, two costly holding penalties — one that negated a 19-yard touchdown run by Ridley — and one intentional grounding during their six possessions. UNC, who hadn’t scored since a 20-yard ﬁeld goal by junior Casey Barth with 8:24 remaining in the second quarter, ended its scoring drought early in the fourth quarter as Yates and sophomore receiver Jheranie Boyd hooked up for a 97-

man and 12 receptions for 238 yards and two touchdowns as a receiver. Miles believes Peterson has the tools to produce similar numbers. “[Peterson] has good vision, great ball skills and great speed,” Miles said. “He’ll do some of those things again because he’s pretty special.” But Peterson — named Southeastern Conference Special Teams Player of the Week on Monday — took talks of the award with laughs and a smile. “Patrick Peterson for Heisman,” Peterson said. “I’d be just the second corner to do that, but it’s all in the sky. I just have to take it one game at a time and keep progressing.” LSU junior safety Brandon Taylor, one of Peterson’s teammates in the secondary, said Peterson was
yard bomb —the longest play from scrimmage in Tar Heel history. Boyd, who also had a 75-yard catch, ﬁnished with a game-high 221 receiving yards. Yates torched the LSU secondary with a career-high 412 passing yards, 261 of those coming in the fourth quarter. “Hands down, that is no indication of our secondary,” said LSU senior linebacker Kelvin Sheppard. “Those are things that can be corrected.” After UNC recovered an onside kick, LSU nearly secured the victory when freshman defensive tackle Tyrann Mathieu blindsided Yates on a corner blitz on fourth-and-5 to force a fumble, which was recovered by redshirt freshman defensive end Barkevious Mingo with less than two minutes. But Ridley coughed up the football with 1:08 remaining to keep the Tar Heels’ heartbeat at a murmur. “We came out strong, but we didn’t ﬁnish strong, and I’m the person to blame for that,” said Ridley, who also fumbled inside the red zone in the third quarter. “We just got complacent from where we were.” FRESH FACES UNC was without 13 players, seven of which were defensive starters — three defensive linemen and the entire secondary — because of the recent NCAA investigations. UNC coach Butch Davis said after the game he burned at least eight redshirts and played several walk-ons. LSU had eight ﬁrst-time well aware of the ramiﬁcations of his performance. “When he came to the sideline after he scored on the punt return, he came off the ﬁeld and said, ‘Seriously, I’m trying to win the Heisman,’” Taylor said. “After that the whole sidelines started cracking up.” Saturday was the ﬁrst time Peterson had returned kicks since his days in prep ball. “The last time I returned kicks had to be my fourth game of my senior season of high school,” Peterson said. “They stopped kicking it to me then, too.” Even though Peterson is garnering attention mostly for his return abilities, it’s his presence in the secondary that is most important to him. The Preseason First-Team AllSEC selection had ﬁve tackles and no pass breakups Saturday, but his aura on the ﬁeld makes opposing of-
starters in the lineup, and a total of nine freshmen saw their ﬁrst career action. Ridley got his third career start at running back, getting the nod ahead of senior Richard Murphy. Eugene started ahead of redshirt freshman Craig Loston and true freshman Eric Reid, who were both listed ahead of Eugene on LSU’s depth chart. Two tight ends — junior Mitch Joseph and sophomore Chase Clement — both started the game in a two-tight end set with junior Deangelo Peterson sidelined with a foot injury. One notable player who didn’t see the ﬁeld was redshirt freshman Michael Ford. DOMECOMING In nine games (8-1) at the Georgia Dome, LSU has outscored opponents 246-132. Sheppard, a Stone Mountain, Ga., native, ﬂourished in his home state as he led the Tiger defense with 10 tackles. STUFFED AND SACKED Although the LSU secondary gave up 412 passing yards, the defense stymied the UNC running game and only allowed 24 net yards on 33 attempts.

Sexual differences in North and South Americas vary wildly “My stupid mouth has got me in trouble.” The lyrics of this John Mayer song, “My Stupid Mouth,” are all I can think about as I remember last week’s timid suggestions of column topics I pitched to my editor. Last on a list of four, the bait seemed catchy, I guess. After all, sex is always a potentially controversial subject — interesting and exciting, to say the least. And here the question starts — what are the differences in sexual culture between North and South America? I’m sure the foggy taboo nature of the subject wouldn’t cause much trouble if I were writing for a Brazilian newspaper. I’d need much more than the words “sexual behavior” to attract readers’ interest. What most likely caused my reflection was an 11-day stretch, which I spent in Rio de Janeiro for
a music festival, in the middle of my five weeks in Brazil this summer after spending one year in the U.S. I’m in trouble here because my digressions are based on subtle differences in perception, which in my opinion stretch the cultural shock between Latin America and North America. I’m stepping on eggs here — I don’t Marcelo Vieira want to reinforce the false Columnist notion that Latin cultures are more promiscuous than American and European societies in general. But a stroll on the other side might accentuate the subtlety of those differences. Similar studies about sexual initiation among teenagers and young adults, both here and in
Brazil, show that the age range always starts much earlier in Brazil. But to be honest, and for the despair of my editors, scientific studies won’t help me prove my point here, if there’s even a point to be proved. Circumstances leading to sensual and sexual activities can vary from case to case, and classifying and quantifying them will not help us to understand why there’s so much shame and repression involving the matter. In Brazil, talking about sex is much more common than here. A fun conversation among friends on the subject would hardly offend anyone. Also, it’s funny how some of the cleavage that is common in Brazil would cause huge traffic problems here, while some of the shorts I see girls wearing on campus would cause serious issues. Cultural differences. When you get to college in
Brazil, it is likely that you already know a great deal about sex and how it goes, even if you are a virgin. Generally, in Brazil, college time will not be like the shocking liberation of the childhood taboos about sex you could never ask. There are no censor bars covering parts of babies in TV shows, and no one is going to take you to a psychotherapist if you are 6 years old and say the word “sex.” However, the disparities can get more serious. I was never afraid of being sued by a girl for having sex with her or even insinuating I wanted to do so, like I see here in many cases. But then again, I might be realizing those differences just because I’m living in a conservative state. Call me an idiot, but like many other issues in America, I feel there are two extremes with not much in between. Sex is either an untouched subject until you find out for
yourself and join the choir of sexually unhappy people because of years of misinformation and repression, or it’s just a matter of performance and self-distraction — and you can do it almost wherever, whenever and with whoever you want. And, especially during college, you shouldn’t let either of those extremes influence your decisions regarding sex, whether you’re going to do it or even just talk about it.

POP GOES THE CULTURE
NFL, Saints ‘should’ve said no’ to Taylor Swift concert The spineless whiner is at it again. First, she tainted the hallowed grounds of Tiger Stadium at the inaugural Bayou Country Superfest. Now she’s using the New Orleans Saints’ nationally-televised home opener Thursday as a launching pad for her newest collection of woeful male-dependency anthems. Yes, Who Dat Nation, we stood up, got crunk and won our first Super Bowl, so to kick off the Saints’ 2010 season we get Taylor Swift. The problem with Swift’s music: When she’s not crying on the
staircase or on her guitar, begging a guy to stay or lamenting the ones who didn’t, what is she doing? Making obscene amounts of money for it. Heartbreak is incredibly lucrative, and Swift knows it. In a culture where our favorite lyrics define us, if Taylor Swift spends her time doing all of the above, her fans are undoubtedly following the leader (check your social networking feed for proof). Her lyrics perpetuate the idea of girls pining endlessly over the guys who got away and guys who aren’t worth it.

Of course, not all of her songs are so depressing. The clichéd “Love Story” and Swift’s latest single, “Mine,” among others, explore what long periods of brooding supposedly lead to. (Hint: it involves princes, horses and the phrase “happily ever after.”) How many times can she write, sing and act out another bad breakup or the other extreme of deluding herself into the fairy tale mentality? Reliving those roller coaster emotions with every song is incredibly self-destructive for Swift, her fawning listeners and the innocent bystanders subjected to it. When Swift’s music becomes the millennial generation’s main model for relationships, people expect the happy ending sooner than they should. And with each disappointment, they resort to Swift’s favorite method of dealing with it: wallowing in songs of self-pity. Factor in her recently designed line of greeting cards and voila: Taylor Swift officially monopolizes the commercial romance industry. Pretty impressive for a 20-year-old. Did I mention she’s also destroying the essence of country music? Contrary to popular belief, the genre’s strong point is storytelling, not just tragedy with twang. But Swift recounts the same old story,
set to her guitar of choice and aired on more mainstream top-40 playlists than on any country radio station. Regarding the two years spent creating her latest CD, Swift said, “You’ve got to give yourself a little bit of time to live a lot of things so you can write about a lot of things.” Kelly Hotard According Columnist to her music so far, such songwriting requires constant hooking up and breaking up. Based on this track record, Taylor Swift isn’t likely to have any fresh experiences to share with her fans via the new album. At least the superstar isn’t doing anything outrageous to land herself in rehab or the tabloids. For someone with little talent, she’s handling fame quite modestly, which is refreshing. She is guilty, however, of the worst type of agenda-setting: subliminally teaching young girls to be dependent on guys for happiness. Swift is downright manic-depressive in these songs: The single life equals the ultimate despair, but every crush signals a Cinderella story. Every Taylor Swift concert

boasts attendees of all ages. I’d like to think it’s because teenyboppers can’t drive themselves. Unfortunately, the more plausible reason is everyone from 6-year-old girls to grown women are uniting in this mass mourning of unrequited love. We all have regrets in such matters, and country music specializes in nostalgia. But the heartbreaker Swift always adores from afar is probably the same cowboy Casanova bashed by Carrie Underwood — the ultimate blonde country crooner — in “Before He Cheats” and “Undo It.” What matters is your approach, and in the departments of girl power and role model (as well as vocal ability), Underwood overtakes Swift. I admit I’m partial to the former because she gives LSU a shout-out in one song (Bayou Country Superfest organizers, take note!). But seriously, the next time you have a bad romance, listen to Carrie — I hear she has a Louisville slugger you can borrow.

Its importance as a “lingua franca” bringing different groups of people together is exceedingly significant. And Portuguese-speaking Brazil, the fifth largest country in the world, will undoubtedly play a major role in the coming decades. It’s the largest national economy in Latin America and predicted to become one of the five largest in the world within the next twenty years. But these are just competi-

Besides opening up infinite new opportunities of learning and communication, studying foreign languages forces your brain to pave new cognitive pathways that can shape our thinking.

It may help you understand why foreigners seem to say the goofiest, most hilarious things in English and how much you can really learn by going through the

PRESS X TO NOT DIE
NFL in talks to supplement replay with microchip
Referees suck. There’s no point in buttering up that statement. It’s a fact. Officials have caused mass frustration and anger among players, coaches and fans alike. They’ve also single-handedly affected history, drastically altered game outcomes and even almost ruined LSU’s chances of winning this past Saturday — oh wait, the Tigers’ abysmal second-half performance did that. I’m not sure why anyone would want to sign up to wear a horrid striped shirt and eventually be the most hated man in a sporting arena. Well, there are those who get paid under the table for tipping a game in a certain direction, but I digress. To balance the possibility of
human error, many sports have recently implemented the use of instant replay or “challenges” to go back and review past plays. While instant replay use is still relatively new to college football (the rule wasn’t fully implemented until 2006), the NFL has been using instant replay in its games since 1986, with the ability to challenge plays starting in 1999. Yet, there still comes a time when a replay official blows a call. For a play to be overturned, there must be “indisputable video evidence” seen by the replay official. Sometimes there aren’t enough vantage points for replay officials to fully observe the play. Sometimes the play cannot
be seen from the appropriate angle to justify the overturning. I never understood how NFL games never had a good view of a specific play. Sure, for college games I could understand if Weber State was playing Idaho they wouldn’t bring every camera to the game. But in a professional football contest, it would seem every major vantage point (end zone, boundaries, etc.) would have a camera dedicated to it, especially because instant replay has become such a major role in the game today. It looks now as if NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has seen one too many botched calls by referees and has begun talks
with German manufacturer Cairos Technologies. Cairos recently developed a new soccer ball used in the 2007 FIFA Club World Cup infused with many Adam Arinder small microColumnist chips alerting the referee when the ball crossed the boundary or scored a goal. The “smartball” had the same weight and feel of a normal fútbol, and players during the ’07 Cup seemed to approve. However, in American football,

some complications could arise. While in soccer, the entire ball must cross the line to be considered a goal, in football, only the tip of the ball has to break the plane to be considered a touchdown. In soccer, players can also step out of bounds to save the ball (as long as the ball stays in play). That isn’t the case in football. Sure, an alert can go off if the ball goes out, but what about the players? It’s also easier to equally place sensors in a soccer ball because of its spherical nature. It would seem a football and its oblong design might not get every spot covered. If the NFL were to implement these sensors, it would be major ammunition to those wanting to keep the game “pure.” While I’m a big fan of using technology as an aid to human error, technology can easily fail or become manipulated. I’m sure if the NFL were to adopt the smartball, it wouldn’t be officials’ sole decision maker — more of a backup if human eyes and instant replay were to fail. Yet, that doesn’t mean over time, this feature won’t make its way to priority decision making. This piece of technology is impressive, but it’s not ready for American football just yet. Right now, the NFL should just worry about having enough cameras on the field to see every angle of every play, get its overtime rules under control and make sure there is actually going to be an NFL in 2011. Or, how about just training the referees to not suck? Adam Arinder is a 20-yearold communication studies senior from Baton Rouge. Follow him on Twitter @TDR_aarinder.
