Lack campus activism a focal point of tar sands discussion By DANA FERGUSON news@thedepauw.com

  Tyler Hess, a former DePauw student and current University of Kentucky junior, returned to DePauw’s campus Sunday night to advocate. This time it was not for banning bottled water, but for banning the Keystone XL pipeline. A panel of professors, including Michele Villinski, Ken Fortino, Rich Cameron and Jeanette Pope, led a discussion along with Hess on the potential implications of installing the Keystone XL pipeline, which would transport oil from tar sand mines in central Canada to Texas.

Hess returned to discuss the issue of protests in regards to the pipeline, along with the faults of the proposed construction. He was arrested earlier this month along with two DePauw staff members in front of the White House during a protest.  Hess discussed the presence of activism at DePauw and the ways in which it affected the awareness towards the tar sands pipeline conflict. “Activism at DePauw is unfortunately typical in that some people try very hard, but it’s just not that effective,” Hess said. “And it’s not that like the rest of campus supports the tar sands, but it’s the disinformation conveyed to the gen-

eral public, and when you log on to Yahoo to check your email there are no stories about any of the problems that we discussed tonight.” Junior Chloe Lawson and sophomores Megan Agnew and Camille Veri attended the discussion and felt the event gave off an optimistic message. “I definitely came out with a positive view of the issue,” Agnew said. “They could have given it a negative connotation as to ‘oh, we’re all doomed,’ but they made it into this more positive, ‘this is what you can do, there’s actions going on right now to help and to make things better than what they currently are.’” Lawson agreed that negativity surrounding

issues of activism prevents some people from taking action. She also said a sense of self-interest in the majority of the student body furthers the lack of activism at DePauw. “And that’s the problem with our generation,” Lawson said. “We’re constantly fed all of this negative information, and we’re just knocked down here and again, and we need to start being positive.”

CAMPUS CRIME

Two Greencastle residents illegally enter fraternity By DANA FERGUSON news@thedepauw.com 

Following two arrests, three alcohol violations, three welfare checks and other lesser crimes, Director of Public Safety Angie Nally said “the weekend was manageable.”  Sunday at 3:44 a.m., nonstudents Colt Dalton Gardner and Christopher T. Monnett were arrested at Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity on charges of public intoxication, criminal trespass and residential entry.  

Nally elaborated on the situation surrounding the arrests.  “The arrests at SAE were of two men that were observed on the property that were intoxicated and had no legitimate business on the property,” Nally said.  In response to three alcohol violations in freshman dorms, Nally said the number was not unprecedented.  “I don’t think three alcohol violations is excessive,” she said. “We can assist CLCD with alcohol violations or be called

by other students to check on individuals.” Nally explained that the term “welfare check” can be used in many situations, some of which may not be problematic.  “It’s vague, but it truly could be a student hears another student who is upset, or sees someone and wants someone to check on them because they appear to need something,” Nally said. “We do these a lot, and sometimes they turn into other types of activity, many times they don’t.”

Yo-Yo Ma to speak, play at week’s end By KENDALL QUISENBERRY news@thedepauw.com 

He started impacting the lives of many DePauw students when he appeared on the beloved television show “Arthur.” Years later, DePauw students will be able to realize his fame and impact on the musical world. Yo-Yo Ma will be speaking Thursday, Sept. 29 about “A Life in Music.” He will then play a concert on Friday Sept. 30.   According to Mark McCoy, dean of the School of Music, Yo-Yo Ma is the “greatest musician since 1971” to come to DePauw.   He continued to explain Judson and Joyce Green, through their connection with the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, have arranged Mr. Ma’s concert. Mr. and Mrs. Green donated $10 million to expand the performing arts building in 2005. “He has always been that ‘wow’ musician, and I think he will be able to bring the DePauw and Greencastle communities together, as well as bringing the two schools together [music and liberal arts],”  said senior vocal performance major Gabriel Lopez. Ticket sales reflected Lopez’s feelings about Ma’s appearance on campus. According to McCoy, student tickets sold out in three hours, while faculty tickets took only two hours to go. General admission tickets vanished in seven minutes.   Free tickets to Ma’s “A Life in the Music” are still being given away at the box office in the

Green Center for Performing Arts. They will be handed out every day from noon to 3:30 p.m. until Thursday, Sept. 29.    “‘A Life in the Music’ is a free chat about Yo-Yo Ma’s life and how he got to where he is today,” McCoy said. “During a portion of the time, he will play and talk about how he works on music. At the end, time permitting, he will take any questions.”  McCoy also emphasized the talk as being a benefit to more than just School of Music students. Ma will be talking about his college experience and the various projects he is working on.   “I’m excited to see him because he is a great musician, and it’s a rare opportunity to see someone with this kind of talent perform live,” said freshman Emma Haynes. “I think this concert is equally geared [toward College of Liberal Arts students and School of Music students] since Yo-Yo Ma is famous for being not only a great musician but entertaining as well, so as to please different types of audiences.”  McCoy also addressed the events’ general appeal. “This is an incredible opportunity for all people to get insight into his life,” he said.

Religious observances trump classes By DANA FERGUSON news@thedepauw.com

In an email sent out to the student body Monday, Director for the Center of Spiritual Life Rev. Katherine Smanik reminded students that they may be excused from classes for religious observences. As the Jewish holidays Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur approach, Smanik said she hoped to alert students of their right to practice their religious observances, even if they occur during class. “I’ve heard of students choosing not to miss class for their observances, and I thought it would be good to have a reminder,� Smanik said. “This is not a trouble, this is something you have a right to

do.� The university’s policy regarding religious observations states that: “Faculty members are expected to accommodate students who are adherents of a religious tradition and wish to fulfill obligations of that religious tradition on holy days. Students are expected to notify their instructors of their intent to fulfill the obligations of their religious tradition well in advance of these days. For the sake of this policy, “holy days� are defined as periods of time in which either: a) activities required by normal class participation are prohibited by a religious tradition, or b) a special worship obligation is required by a religious tradition.�

Members of the Greencastle community filled the Dixie Choppe Business Center Saturday night, flocking to tables filled with the specialties of local restaurants. Sounds of children laughing in the bounce house outside, while songs of local musicians and murmurs of “mmmm” filled the air. The second annual Taste of Putnam County welcomed crowds of eaters young and old looking to support old favorites and try new delicacies. Greencastle resident Patty Taylor sat with her husband watching her daughter and granddaughter play after enjoying a diverse dinner. The family tasted foods from many restaurants sharing each dish. “It gives us a lot of chances to try things without having to pay al that money and then to not liking it,” Taylor said. “So far we haven’ found anything we didn’t like.” Taylor’s daughter Judy mentioned that she enjoyed the experience, especially the shrimp bisque from The Final Approach

“My favorite is the shrimp bisque, I think it’s really good,” she said. “I think I had like three helpings of it.” The Taylor family voted for The Final Approach to win the Taste of Putnam County plate, which it did. Patty Taylor said her family devoured foods they normally don’t try from around the city. “The ones that we didn’t try are the ones that we had gone to so many other times like Humble Pie and Pizza King and Putnam Inn,” she said. “We had been there so many times that there was really no sense in trying those because we had everything they had.” Pizza King owner Howard Thomas agreed that the event provides visitors with the opportunity to try dishes from restaurants they otherwise would not try. “I think it’s great for the fact that you bring a lot of the different restaurants in from the community and people can go around and sample that they might not otherwise try or they might not stop in, because they have a perception of what that restaurant is about,” Thomas said. “But here under one roof and in four hours, you can run around and sample desserts or staple items from the different restaurants.” Two-year-old Zoey Taylor also enjoyed the experience sharing

food and fun with her mother and grandparents. She spent most of the evening watching other children in the bounce house. When asked what she thought of the food, Zoey Taylor said with a big smile, “It’s good.” Patty Taylor said she plans to bring her family to the event again next year. “Last year we wanted to come and didn’t, now I wish we would have,” she said. “But I’ll make sure we come next year.” Restaurant owners also enjoyed the event, saying it was a good opportunity to highlight their food. Gail Smith, the owner of Almost Home, said the reaction to the restaurant’s offerings pleasantly surprised her. After three hours the table sold out of dessert. “It’s been great,” she said. “We’re all out of our desserts, and we just have a little bit of the crab cakes left, so we’re happy.” Thomas represented his restaurant at the event for the first time this year and felt excited about the experience. “It met or exceeded my expectations,” he said. “It was our first year here so we weren’t sure what to expect so we brought a variety of things that we have, some of our favorites and some of our newer items, it’s going over well.”

Thomas said the evening also allowed business owners to have a night out that they rarely get. “Even for us as restaurant owners, it’s good for us to see what other people are doing because we just don’t get out much,” he said. Smith also admitted to sampling dishes from other restaurants with no shame. “I’ve tried a lot of the food here and it’s all good,” she said. “Anyone that goes away hungry, it’s their own fault.“ Senior Luis Paulino and junior Ersane John, employees at Humble Pie, manned the table with owner Arthur Middleton during the event. Both said that working in the city provides an opportunity to see the Greencastle community that DePauw students rarely experience. “I definitely wish that it was more publicized to the DePauw community because I just feel like getting to interact with the community is something that we all struggle with,” Paulino said. “That’s something Ersane and I were talking about earlier just wishing that we had more opportunities like this with more access to the Greencastle community.”

EDITORIAL

Low tallies hurt credibility Over the weekend, students had the opportunity to vote for open slots on the student senate. But the tallies were jaw-droppingly low. Only 14 seniors voted. Juniors had 46. And just over 50 freshmen logged on to e-Services to have their say. Low participation like this marks one of many aspects that takes away from the credibility our student government could possess. Student government blamed a lack of campaigning from those running for the low numbers. But that’s no excuse. If these students are passionate enough to run for a position in which they represent hundreds of individuals, it is their job to make their constituents care about them and the issues at hand. Our student government is wholly responsible for increased participation. We think this weekend’s results merit a closer look as we all ask why almost 80 percent of the student body chose not to vote. The implementation of Facebook as a forum for thoughts and concerns is a step in the right direction to promote student engagement. But comments and complaints on the internet mean very little when no action is taken. Student government has the ability to pass white papers and resolutions. Each carries their own “weight” with administration and faculty. But in the end, the university has the ability to toss out any of them, significantly decreasing any real impact those measures possess. This Friday, we saw a surprisingly successful DePauwpalooza bring together School of Music and College of Liberal Arts students. The effort was partially due to a white paper student government passed last year calling for more unity between the two schools. However, without Dean of the School of Music Mark McCoy’s hearty support and passion, this event may have never come to fruition. Last year’s student government fufilled its promise by introducing an abundance of white papers: campus lighting, course requests, student identity theft, kegs. It seemed like something was voted on and passed to another university office every week. But one year later, we have noticed little more than a picnic for a whole year’s worth of work. It’s good to see student government fulfilling its duty and following up on its promises to the student body. Still, we question the real impact student government has on campus. White papers mean very little without follow-through. We challenge student government to take on an issue — even just one — and work tirelessly until it is implemented. We would much rather our representatives tackle one thing and see a concrete result than pass a record number of white papers and resolutions. Maybe then, the student government will become a real force for students on campus.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Laura Guild, freshman

Sources are credible: racism led to Davis’ death In her opinion piece, “Consider the sources, then think critically,” Ayers grapples with questions that many of us “consumers” are willing and able to answer. I can assure her that it is through listening, reading, discussing — even critically thinking — that leads many of us to feel passionate about contentious issues. I can’t help but sense that what really bothers Ayers is that someone who is pro-death penalty might somehow be duped into caring about a man’s execution.  It’s as though she believes there are correct ways and incorrect ways to become interested in and form opinions on a matter. To Ayers:  please do not assume that “we” are unaware of the links between Amnesty International and cases such as Davis’. I do not join you in faulting Amnesty International for doing its damnedest to save a man’s life. I reject your implication that Amnesty does not similarly toil for the lives of others. I reject the notion of

an “all or nothing” approach.  I resent the ease with which you seem to separate issues of race and the death penalty. I am grateful for the countless people who devote their lives and careers to social justice and civil rights issues — they work tirelessly, wishing that our nation would pay more attention.  I am heartened when one man’s plight gives our nation an opportunity to reflect on issues including all of the above: the death penalty, the failures of our judicial system, racism, etc.  Please know that “we” are capable of understanding how these issues relate to one another. As one of the millions of Americans who was horrified at Davis’  execution, I am not concerned with what “motivated”  similarly horrified people to take interest in this case. Rather, I am concerned that racism potentially led to an innocent man’s death.   —Misti Shaw  Music and performing arts librarian  Assistant professor 

Poetry isn’t dead, Hip Hop only part of a movement I do agree that there is a general lack of zeal, if not appreciation, when it comes to poetry in the contemporary classroom. It gets tiring watching students, myself included, pulling out lazy readings of classical pieces of poetry, and the language barrier between Shakespearean and contemporary English seems almost insurmountable at times. However, I think that some certain distinction needs to be drawn. There is a flip side to every movement, an underground people who take the traditional rules and augment them to create something beautiful. Hip-hop artists like Kanye are merely the head side of the coin called modern poetry. The Harlem Renaissance brought about greats like Ethridge Knight and Haryette Mullen. Fans of Def Poetry Jam will tell you that poetry is alive and well. Given the packed auditorium at Peeler a few weeks ago when poet Major Jackson gave a reading, I would caution against saying that poetry has been limited to Kanye and other mainstream hip-hop

artists. Though hip-hop certainly reaches the widest audience, it pains me to think that the poetry is limited to what we hear on the radio. I think that the points brought up by Ms. Westenfeld certainly are valid, but I hate to see something as beautiful as poetry pigeonholed in such a way. Certainly, the poetry of old has been replaced, but it has not been obscured. Hip-hop troubadours are merely the tip of the poetic iceberg. I encourage you to look up Rives, J. Ivy, Steve Connell, Gemineye, Black Ice, Oscar Brown Jr., or any other of the Def Poets and see that the underground is where it’s at. While these poets may not be talking about the beauty of nature like the Romantics or riding on chrome rims like Dr. Dre, they address the issues of the day and do so in a way that affects those who hear their words. Just give the flip side of poetry a chance. You may be pleasantly surprised. Sincerely, —Stephen Shapiro, junior

CROSS COUNTRY

Front runners strong in dual second-place finishes By MICHAEL APPELGATE sports@thedepauw.com

In both teams’ third meet of the season, leaders emerged and weaknesses were better identified. At the Otterbein Invitational in Westerville, Ohio, the men and women crosscountry teams both placed second to Centre College while turning in fantastic individual results. Junior Noah Droddy, who was named the NCAC runner of the week, won the men’s race. Sophomore Siri Retrum placed second for the women. “It was definitely a good race for Noah,” said head coach Kori Stoffregen. “As a junior, we need him to win races

like that. He’s a really patient runner and then he always seems to find his way to the front when the time comes.” Droddy impressed Stoffregen with his mentality and strategy to stay in the lead pack and wait for the right time to take the lead for good.  “Going into it I knew I was one of the front runners,” Droddy said. “I went into the lead pack in the beginning and hung with them through four miles. Once I hit the four mile mark I decided to take off.” Although Droddy took first place individually, the team still placed second as DePauw’s third, fourth and fifth runners finished 17th, 18th and 21st respectively. “It was actually a pretty good race for us,” Stoffregen said. “Pete Richard turned

in a solid race, and the pack of three worked together really well and finished strong. It was just that the Centre guys started off stronger and were more aggressive.” Sophomore Adam Cecil and seniors Tyler Giesting and Nathan Kober were the last three scorers for the men. Stoffregen said their improvement will be key in late season success. I like where we’re headed and I think we’re going to peak when we need to,” Cecil said. “To stay healthy is the main thing.”   On the women’s side, Retrum finished second to Jennifer Cook of Berry College. “We knew that there was a girl from

FIELD HOCKEY

Offense keeps rolling: 5-0 in NCAC By ELEANOR AXT sports@thedepauw.com  

DePauw collected its sixth straight win and remained perfect in North Coast Athletic Conference play this weekend improving to 6-1 overall and 5-0 in the conference. “We are definitely excited about how we are doing,” said junior Caroline Torie. “We know we can’t let up this week and this weekend because we have three conference games.” On Friday, the Tigers beat Oberlin College (4-5, 2-4 NCAC) 6-0. Junior forward Margaret Ellis scored three goals for her second hat trick of the season and assisted on two others. Ellis scored the game’s first goal in minutes. “The passing game is still really strong,” said head coach Gina Preston. “We have players who have good individual skills and just recognizing when we need to pass over the field over taking someone on one-on-one.” Ellis, who now leads the team with 13 goals, is not only performing well up front in the scoring circle, but also is tracking back on defense to win possession. “Our forwards are doing a nice job tracking back,” Preston said. “They are forcing our opponents in transition to make a mistake in dribbling or make a bad pass. So then our defenders are looking to intercept that pass instead of matching up with people.” Torie said DePauw had an advantage playing on

a turf field against Oberlin rather than at home. The Tigers took on the College of Wooster (4-5, 2-3 NCAC) on Saturday, beating them 4-0. DePauw jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the first half, but still made some defensive adjustments at halftime. “Our coach was telling us that we need to mark the other players and stay really close to them to make sure they don’t get the ball,” Torie said. Ellis pushed DePauw’s lead to 4-0 for her fifth goal of the weekend. As the Tigers spoke of defensive changes at halftime, the offense was, according to Preston, affected inadvertently. “Against Wooster, we made some adjustments in the second half defensively, but we need to make sure we transition well to offense off of that,” Preston said. “We learned a lot about ourselves last week, and we can work on that this week.” DePauw held a 19-2 advantage in shots and led in corners 17-2. Freshman goalkeeper Maggie Steele totaled two saves in goal for the Tigers and collected her third shutout of the season. “Everyone’s really stepping up,” Torie said. “The seniors are really doing their part to keep us motivated, but I feel like everyone is really supportive.” The game against Wooster was a good preview for the team as they ready to face the defending conference champion Wednesday in Wittenberg College. Preston said the teams play similar styles and is excited to see how her team competes against the best of NCAC. “We love home games,” Torie said. “We are so excited. I can’t stress enough how much this field has been so fun to play on and it has made us a better team.”

Berry College who was very good and knew she was going to go to the lead right off the bat,” Stoffregen said. “Siri went with her, and she only got away from her in the last 1,000 meters or so.” According to Stoffregen, Retrum is a talented No. 1 runner for the Tigers, but the team needs to start developing the runners behind her. “We need to close the gap between our No. 1 runner in Siri and the rest of the group,” Stoffregen said. “That’s a bigger gap than we really want to have, we have potential to do that, but we need to get it done.” As an outlook to the rest of the season, Stoffregen is pleased with the teams’ progression and reaction to the harder train-

ing he is giving to his team. “I’m very pleased with the response I’m getting,” Stoffregen said. “They are stepping up to that challenge and embracing the things we are presenting to them. I couldn’t be more pleased with their attitude of the bit extra that we’re giving them.” Next weekend, the Tigers will compete at the Gibson Family Invitational, which is co-hosted by DePauw and RoseHulman Institute of Technology. Stoffregen and Droddy hope their progress can continue and their training can pay off.  “We’re putting in a lot harder efforts than we have ever done,” Droddy said. “We haven’t seen all the benefits yet. We’re only going to get better the harder we work.”

WOMEN’S GOLF

Second in abbreviated Classic By MICHAEL APPELGATE sports@thedepauw.com

While the DePauw Small College Classic is technically a home tournament for the Tigers, head coach Vince Lazar said the match was home in name only. Because they competed on the Deer Creek golf course in Clayton, Ind., the Tigers were not able to practice on the course as much as they would have liked before the tournament, which was also disrupted by the inclement weather. During the two-day weekend tournament, the teams were able to play through 18 holes Saturday but planned on only nine Sunday due to heavy rain. They were able to play nine holes, but none of the coaches who were in attendance knew the NCAA does not recognize nine-hole events. As a result, the only day that counted was Saturday. “A one-day tournament like this is a difficult barometer to read,” said head coach Vince Lazar. “Anything can happen in one day. And as a coach, team and a player, you want as many opportunities to complete a tournament. You have to be careful to read too much into Saturday.” DePauw completed the one-day tournament in second place to Centre College. Senior Kelly Gaughan finished tied for second individually while senior Taylor Beaty and sophomore Abby Dickey finished tied for seventh. Although the tournament lasted just one day, Lazar said his golfers must keep this fourth straight second-place finish in perspective and continue to improve individual play.

“We know we’re not a bad team,” Lazar said. “We are probably a top-five team in the country. It would be nice to win a tournament with four second-place fin���� ishes. Those tournaments we lost to very good teams.” Lazar points to his team’s mentality on individual holes as an aspect that could use improvement. Instead of thinking of the next shot, he wants his players to stay in the right mind set of the current stroke and work on individual play. “Coming in second and being so close to winning, it’s something we’ve really broken down into individual goals for each one of us,” Beaty said. “It’s really fun at the end to put it together, but it comes down to it on the course that it’s you and that shot.” The practice situation for the Tigers also disrupted the way they prepare for tournaments. Though the golf course is 30 minutes away, the team had little opportunity to play through the 18-hole course because of golf outings at the course and a tough academic schedule during the week.  “The golf course had outings this week and weather was an issue,” Lazar said. “I can say with some certainty that I doubt all of our players played all 18 holes before they got there. We weren’t into our normal flow.” Regardless of the practice situation, the team has the ability to reach the top of the Div. III standings if it can work on individual performances. “We have yet to play well,” Lazar said. “We had sporadic good play from individuals, but as a group, we haven’t had a day where we are all clicking and playing well. Hopefully, we are just getting better.” Next weekend, the team will travel to Meadville, Pa., for the Allegheny Invitational.

WOMEN’S SOCCER

Tigers finally adjusting to new 4-3-3 formation By CONNOR HOLLENSTEINER sports@thedepauw.com

After a 3-0 loss at home to the University of Chicago on Thursday, the Tigers were determined to reproduce the excellent play of the last 20 minutes of that game. Those 20 minutes featured a new offense flowing well and creating chances.   Against Hiram College on Saturday, DePauw (4-4, 2-0 NCAC) won 3-1 with its new 4-3-3 formation for its second victory in the North Coast Athletic Conference.   The Tigers fell behind early in the match, when Sarah Condon put Hiram up 1-0 less than six minutes into the game. But that was the only score the Hiram Terriers would see all day.   The Tigers came out strong in the second half. Seven minutes in, sophomore Angela Cotherman tieing the game at one, scoring the first of her two goals in the match. Alex Ehr rounded out the scoring in the 84th minute to put the Tigers up 3-1, with just six minutes left to play.  Head coach John Carter was happy with the team’s performance and the results.   “We gave up one shot in the first half,” Carter said.  “But we battled uphill in the second half to get the results we wanted. We dominated the match, and we just weren’t

lucky enough to score in the first half.”  The Tigers out-shot the Terriers 24-3 in the game. They also held the edge in corners at 8-0. Going into the second half, Carter said the team knew what it had to do.  “We had to just keep playing, we were dominating the possession and opportunities in the first half,” Carter said. “We need to just keep playing the way we were. We knew we had 45 minutes to score so we don’t need to stress about it right away. We wanted to just let it happen in the run of play, and be sure to stay clean defensively.”  According to Cotherman, the new offensive formation is creating more chances for the team as crosses come in from the wings and can be received by two players, not just one. Also, defenders are pressing up more to intercept clearances from the opponent’s defense, allowing the ball to remain in that half and the Tigers to hold possession.   “It’s a lot more high-pressure because there are more numbers in the box for crosses to fall to players,”  Cotherman said. “Now we are getting the hang of it and capitalizing on it.”   The Tigers sit at 4-4 for the season with a conference leading 2-0 record. The team is back in action tonight at Earlham College at 4:30 p.m. Its next conference game match is set for 1 p.m. Saturday at Kenyon College.

No love in Memphis By PARKER SCHWARTZ sports@thedepauw.com

The DePauw football team went into its Memphis, Tennessee match against the Rhodes College Lynx with a confident swagger, ready to face a Rhodes team that had been outscored 110-28 in its first two contests against Washington University in St. Louis and Trinity University.   With a new head coach in Dan Gritti, only six senior starters and new all-black uniforms, the Lynx football team defeated DePauw 24-14, led by senior quarterback Brett Stoots.  “The sky has not fallen. We lost a football game today,” said DePauw head coach Robby Long. “We’ve still got six more on our schedule, and we’ve got to prepare for the next one and get a win.”  The Tigers (1-2) and the Lynx (12) were grid locked the entire first quarter in a defensive battle that only yielded 145 total yards combined.   Rhodes struck first with 12 minutes 11 seconds left in the second quarter on its own 20 yard line,

when senior quarterback Brett Stoots tossed a screen pass to fullback Dane Wilson who broke a series of tackles on his way to an 80-yard touchdown.  Rhodes kept the lead the rest of the contest, holding DePauw to limited completions through the air. DePauw quarterback Ethan Schweir was 14 for 26 in passing with one interception in the game.   The second quarter yielded the best opportunities for the DePauw offense to put points on the board. Nose guard Patrick Keller recovered a fumble on the DePauw 17 yard line, and linebacker Matt Johnson returned an interception 22 yards to the Rhodes 46. Robby Schuler intercepted another Stoots pass at the DePauw 42, en route to three consecutive turnovers forced by the DePauw defense.   The Tiger offense struggled throughout the game, most notably on third and short situations, 0-8 in the first half on third down and only 5-15 overall.   “You want to put yourself in the

best position on third down and come through and convert it,” Long said. “I’d have to look at the film to see the things we were or were not doing on third down, but I know we weren’t converting them.”  DePauw could not capitalize on key forced turnovers and numerous offensive drives in Rhodes’ territory. The Tigers failed to score in the first half, trailing 7-0 at halftime.  DePauw didn’t fare much better in the second 30 minutes as the Lynx imposed their will offensively. Previously a third string quarterback, Brett Stoots replaced junior Tyler Perkins after the first offensive series and found a strong rhythm in the second half with receiver Buddy Legens and fullback Dane Wilson.  After a 32-yard field goal in the third quarter by Rhodes kicker Lukas Stockhausen, Stoots threw his second touchdown of the game to Dane Wilson for a nine-yard touchdown, extending the Rhodes lead to 17 points with 12:10 left in the fourth quarter. 

—Compiled by Michael Appelgate

Ethan Schweir, on the next offensive drive, left the game with an ACL injury after taking a big hit during a five-yard scamper. Sophomore quarterback Jackson Kirtley entered the game in his place.  Kirtley scored a 10-yard rushing touchdown on his first full drive under center, but Dane Wilson would answer with his third touchdown of the game, a 20-yard rush giving Rhodes the lead 24-7.  Kirtley threw another touchdown pass to Kevin Ude late in the fourth quarter, but could not close the deficit. The Rhodes victory was the first for Dan Gritti.  The Tigers will have work to do on both sides of the ball going into their Oct. 1 contest with Centre College. For defensive coordinator Scott Srnka, the game against Rhodes was a bittersweet moment. Srnka coached against his alma mater and former team for the first time on Saturday.  He was the defensive coordinator at Rhodes for 17 years.

“We didn’t take advantage of opportunities and we missed tackles. We didn’t have good angles,” Srnka said. “I think Dane [Wilson] is a very good back, but we’ve got a lot of work to do to get to the standard of the DePauw defense where we want it to be.”  The Tigers will have a busy week of practice, looking to dramatically improve on both sides of the ball going into their week five game against an undefeated Centre team. It will be DePauw’s first home game this season.  “We’ve got to improve,” Long said. “We have to practice better. I thought practice was a little sluggish early in the week. What you see on Saturday is how you practice. I want to see [our team] come out and recommit themselves to the things we are all about.”  Kickoff for the DePauw-Centre match-up is set for 1 p.m.  The game will be broadcast live on 91.5 WGRE.
