Aldawsari trial pushed back to May By CAITLAN OSBORN NEWS EDITOR

U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings has selected a new date for the trail of alleged terrorist and former Texas Tech student Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari due to concerns from Aldawsari’s defense about their client’s competency. The trial, which was previously set for Jan. 9, has been moved to May 14. Cummings ordered a psychiatric evaluation for Aldawsari on Nov. 10 after his attorneys stated the intent to use insanity as a defense.

Lawyers to use insanity as defense The motion for a psychiatric examination was unopposed by the U.S. government and Cummings also ordered an exam to determine if Aldawsari was insane at the time of his arrest. Aldawsari’s defense team, which currently consists of Rod Hobson of Lubbock and Dan Cogdell and Paul Doyle of Houston, claims Aldawsari did not understand the nature of his actions and that he also does not understand the charges filed against him.

They said he cannot adequately assist in his own defense because of his current mental state. Aldawsari’s attorneys also said Aldawsari appears to be suffering from severe delusional visions and beliefs. Aldawsari entered the United States in September 2008 and transferred to Tech in August 2009 as a chemical engineering major. He then transferred to South Plains College in Levelland in January 2011 as a business major because of his failing grades at Tech.

Aldawsari, who was born April 24, 1990, has citizenship from Saudi Arabia. However, immigration records state he was lawfully admitted into the country via his F-1 student visa. According to immigration records, Aldawsari’s college tuition was funded by a Saudi-based industrial corporation that also paid for his living expenses. TRIAL continued on Page 2 ➤➤

Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari was arrested in February and charged with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

Tech grant to assist beginning farmers, ranchers $600K to aid communication By GLORIA LERMA STAFF WRITER

Texas Tech, the University of Illinois, the University of Georgia and Kansas State University have joined forces to bring technology and farming together. For more than three years, Erika Irlbeck, an assistant professor of agricultural communications at Tech, has led a group of researchers in obtaining a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant of $600,000 for improving communication between farmers and ranchers and online marketing through social networks. As part of the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Initiative, the USDA awarded institutions of higher learning money to help in marketing the skills of farmers and ranchers, said Michael Galyean, interim dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources at Tech.

The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center announced Wednesday that a $1 million gift was given by the Wood Family Foundation to equip a new clinical simulation center at the Medical Center Hospital in Odessa. The Woods are Texas Tech alumni who established Western National Bank in the Permian Basin, according to a HSC news release. Tedd L. Mitchell, president of the HSC, said the Woods’ contribution establishes an important foundation for clinical simulation and medical education in the Permian Basin. “’Thanks’ just doesn’t seem to be enough for a family that’s been so generous,” Mitchell said in a statement. “Their gift will benefit our students for years to come.” The new clinical simulation center in Odessa is expected to be complete in 2012 and will be an interdisciplinary educational clinical laboratory to promote safe, quality patient care through innovative simulation technologies. “This donation provides the HSC with the opportunity to purchase high-tech equipment that will enrich the education of the students and ultimately improve the quality of care for our patients,” said John C. Jennings, regional dean of the School of Medicine, in a statement. “In addition, the partnership with the Medical Center Health System will provide their staff with learning opportunities and competency assessments.” Texas Tech Chancellor Kent Hance said it is an honor for the school to receive this gift. ➤➤news@dailytoreador.com

According to the report, FBI agents used legally authorized electronic surveillance to discover that Aldawsari sent emails to himself regarding research on potential targets, explosives and explosive components. He was arrested Feb. 23. Cummings issued a gag order in Aldawsari’s case in March, preventing Aldawsari, the prosecution, the defense, the FBI and other public officials from speaking to the media about the hearing or trial.

Killer of 7-year-old San Antonio girl executed HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) — A convicted sex offender was put to death Wednesday evening for slipping into a San Antonio apartment in the middle of the night, snatching a 7-year-old girl and raping and strangling her. Guadalupe Esparza, 46, asked for forgiveness before Texas Department of Criminal Justice officials administered lethal drugs into his arms. “I hope you will find peace in your heart,” he said to relatives of his victim, Alyssa Maria Vasquez, as they watched through a window a few feet from him. “My sympathy goes out to you. I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me. I don’t

know why all of this happened.” Just minutes earlier, the child’s mother, Diana Berlanga, had entered the death chamber, saw Esparza on the gurney with needles in his arms and said, “He’s going to get what he deserves.” As the drugs took effect, Esparza appeared to go to sleep, taking several breaths before all movement stopped. He was pronounced dead at 6:21 p.m. CST — 11 minutes after the drugs were administered. Appeals were exhausted and no late legal maneuvers were made to keep Esparza from becoming the 13th Texas inmate to be put to death by the state this year. A clemency petition was rejected Monday by the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles.

Students Organizing For Students, or SO4S, aims to ensure that graduates are globally competent and competitive individuals in an increasingly diverse state and nation through an inclusive atmosphere at all levels, according to the group’s mission statement. The organization is considered a committee, but is in essence, a grass roots movement for changes in institution policies and recruitment, said Stuart Williams, a junior history major from Lubbock and former member of SGA. “I can say with a good amount of authority that this is not an issue that will be discussed within our student government,” Williams said. “They aren’t talking about diversity, they aren’t talking about infrastructure, they are much more concerned with looking good enough to be reelected, so that they have something to add to their resumes.” Tyler Patton, SGA president, established the committee as a diversity task force, said Ryan Culbertson, a graduate student from Benbrook, but the group does not clearly recognize its association with the student senate. SO4S is in the process of writing a proposal to the Tech Board of Regents which will address minority concerns and create a student multicultural center, and will be

NEWS ranchers not only to use online and social media for advertising their products, but also to connect with one another to improve ranching and farming techniques,” Irlbeck said. “Also, if they have a problem, they can share with each other and work together in solving it.” The grant will serve to create a program designed to familiarize farmers and ranchers with online research, Galyean said, as it will also provide training on how to apply online tools in farming and ranching and aid in exchanging information and ideas. The program is essentially a chance to enhance communication and marketing for members of agricultural in-

dustries, Galyean said. Although the grant has been awarded already, the program will not take effect until late 2012, Irlbeck said. The program is intended to take place in Georgia, Illinois and Texas, and it is expected to expand to other states by its third year. “Currently, we have graduate students working on developing the project,” Irlbeck said. “So far, the program will consist of possibly an eight-hour workshop in intensive online training for the interested farmers and ranchers in the area.” The American Farm Bureau Federation, the GO TEXAN program and local newsletters

submitted at the end of next semester, Culbertson said. “A state institution should at least reflect the state that it is in,” Williams said. “Yet the Hispanic enrollment rate is only 13.7 percent, African American is 4.2 percent and Asians only represent 2.6 percent of the total student body. To be successful we should reflect the world demographics.” Among the many topics discussed in this forum, the committee agreed on the top three obstacles that ethnic students face. The number one issue that concerns the group is the minority professor and faculty numbers on campus. According to the Tech Department of Institutional Research, there are only four African American professors and 12 Hispanic professors teaching for the 2011-2012 school year. “There is no one of color to look up to in the history books,” said David Reza, a senior political science major from El Paso, “and there aren’t really any classes that focus on Latino heritage because there aren’t teachers that care about these topics. The faculty must represent the student demographics.” Curriculum and teaching issues are not the only obstacles that minority and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students are facing, the group said, but the attitudes of other students and of university administrators are a constant battle. One student participating in the

forum said her parents were afraid to send her to Tech because it is known as the “racist” school across the state. “We do live in a segregated community,” Williams said. “Culturally, Lubbock is living in 1985.” The third obstacle that minority representatives claim to face is lack of administrative support. “Dr. Munoz sees the benefit of developing a diversity friendly campus,” said Devin Saunders, a junior psychology major from San Antonio, “but, unfortunately, other administrators see the university as just a business.” The Tech Cross Cultural Academic Advancement Center is a program created for a similar purpose, but is not performing in a way that is sympathetic to the many minority obstacles, Williams said. Juan Munoz, vice president for institutional diversity equity, and community engagement and Director Jobi Martinez currently head the CCAAC. “Munoz cares about Munoz,” Culbertson said. “The Cross Cultural Center is just another program for Tech to brag about, and that looks good on paper.” Martinez is unwilling to give up her “iron-tight grip on the program,” Williams said. To overcome these issues, the group has designated five goals to better unite the campus: To increase the inclusion, well-being and understanding of all students

will be used to recruit farmers and ranchers to the program, she said. “We don’t have a specific list of people who will be participating, but we are using as many networks as possible to get the word out,” Irlbeck said. Non-traditional crops, livestock, operating services, recreation and tourism will also be included in the training. The program is a great way to bring universities across the nation together for a common purpose, Galyean said. “They’re working together to solve common problems and they also have common interests,” he said.

on Tech campus; to increase student enrollment, retention and alumni support; to strengthen community outreach and engagement, especially among underrepresented groups; to promote student success and the development of global citizens and to consolidate and maximize student resources. In order to accomplish these goals, SO4S plans to petition the administration for the resources to better serve other minorities, sexual orientations and religions. Ultimately, the organization would like to create a Multicultural Center that would provide ethnic unique facilities, peer-to-peer counseling for LGBT students, foot baths for the increasing number of Muslim students on campus and a women’s resource center. “A MCC will say that you don’t have to lose your cultural identification at Texas Tech,” Culbertson said. The creation of this center will play directly into the movement toward tier-one status, Culbertson said. Texas A&M and the University of Texas at Austin, two currently recognized national research centers, have had multicultural programs for the past decade. “This is not a liberal thing, this is not a conservative thing,” said Leon Eldridge, a community representative, “it is students taking their futures into their own hands.” The SO4S will host another open forum at 6 p.m. on Nov. 30. ➤➤sdouglas@dailytoreador.com

Corruption can ruin greatness O

nce upon a time, there was a circus. It was a nice, little circus — certainly not overly fancy — with a small but passionate fan base continually coming to see the show. One day, it was decided that the circus should be more successful and achieve national exposure. So, a new ringmaster was hired who had shown the ability to think outside the box in various positions as an assistant. Almost immediately, the new ringmaster brought a much more exciting show to the circus. He had a great combination of brains and guts — the likes of which had not been seen by circus-goers anywhere. He used these traits to bring new acts to the circus that drew the awe of spectators. There were high-flying trapeze artists who did tricks that were simple to execute, yet also incredibly successful and difficult to copy. Human cannonballs soared through the air and hit their targets with incredible precision. Because of the ringmaster and his success with the show, the circus began to garner national attention. With the arena constantly being sold out for performances, thousands of new seats were added as new fans clamored to see one of the most exciting shows in the country. For 10 wonderful years, the circus reaped the rewards brought on by its ringmaster. During this time, however, trouble was brewing. A wealthy and powerful politician was able to buy the circus thanks to his connections in the government. He used authoritarian rule to further his crusade and make his mark on his new possession. Immediately upon arrival, the new owner disliked the successful ringmaster. He knew that no matter how much he was able to achieve, the ringmaster would always garner more attention and affection. Thinking only about himself, he wanted the ringmaster gone, but he needed to figure out a way to do it without alienating the fans. So, he tried to pay the ringmaster considerably less than he was worth in an effort to get the ringmaster to leave. Instead, the ringmaster bested the owner in the negotiations after the fans demanded for the ringmaster stay. Defeated and humiliated, the owner began searching for another way to get rid of the ringmaster. Around this time, one of the show’s performers contacted his father to complain about how the ringmaster did not let him perform as much as he deserved. His father worked as a reporter for the national magazine Circus Weekly. The father immediately contacted the ringmaster to convince him to put his son in the show more often. After getting no sat-

Andrew Gleinser isfaction from the ringmaster, he contacted the owner of the circus to voice his displeasure on how his son, who was the son of a worldfamous circus performer, was being relegated to an understudy role. The owner then saw his opportunity to get rid of the ringmaster once and for all. He and the performer’s father were able to hatch a diabolical plan to achieve their shared goal of getting rid of the ringmaster. The disgruntled performer faked mistreatment in order to get the ringmaster in trouble. The performer’s father used his position at Circus Weekly to smear the ringmaster’s name and to promote his son’s side of the story. The owner demanded for the ringmaster to apologize for mistreating the performer. When the ringmaster refused to apologize for something he did not do, the owner fired him. The owner then hired a new ringmaster, one who had a history of success east of the Mississippi. Most of the fans felt like the circus would be in good hands. However, as time progressed, the show progressively got worse. The performers made mistakes by the bushel and the shows became unimaginative and boring. Attendance dropped as fans became disappointed and disgruntled. The new ringmaster was indifferent to the failures of his show and began to be disliked by the remaining supporters. But, the owner was too busy enjoying himself to notice the decline of his circus. He spent his time in his private suite with his wealthy friends eating filet mignon while ignoring the displeasure of the fans. The disgruntled performer was allowed into the show by the new ringmaster while the performer’s father, though hated by circus fans everywhere, continued to work for the magazine. The old ringmaster was forced to fight for his reputation and eventually lost his case because the judge was a friend of the owner. As time passed, the circus became one of the worst in the country, alienating nearly all of the remaining fans. The moral of this story is that corruption can destroy great things. Do what you can to fight against it, for it’s closer than you may think.  Gleinser is a junior political science and history major from Kingwood. ➤➤ agleinser@dailytoreador.com CONTACT US: Newsroom: 806-742-3393 Sports: 806-742-2939 Advertising: 806-742-3384 Classified: 806-742-3384 Business: 806-742-3388 Circulation: 806-742-3388 Fax: 806-742-2434 Email: dailytoreador@ttu.edu Toreador, Box 43081 Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas 79409.

Ask Ioanna Q:

A college student’s guide to college life

Dear Ioanna:

For all of my life, I have always been focused on having a successful career. But when I started college, I realized how much I want to fall in love and meet a guy I can one day start a family with. I know I’m only 21 years old, but when all of your friends have long-term relationships while you somehow attract the wrong guys, you begin to question things. For more than a year now, I’ve had an on-and-off thing with a guy. I’m crazy about him, and I know he cares about me, but I also know the chances of him ever committing to a relationship are probably slim to none. For a while, we were great together. Then, I gave him an ultimatum, which, of course, didn’t go well. Since then, we’ve been seeing each other on and off again while also seeing other people. I really want to move on from him, but I can’t seem to shake him. At the beginning of summer, I hit it off with a wonderful new guy. Since I was still trying to get over the previous guy, I decided to sleep with the new guy. During the last six months, I’ve developed some feelings for him and I think he has developed some feelings for me. However, I have no intentions of doing anything about them because he’s still in playboy mode. To add to all of this, I met another guy at the end of summer and we became fast friends. He pursued me a little bit, but I shot him down. I finally decided to give him a chance, and then I found out from a mutual friend of ours that he has a long-distance girlfriend, so I immediately cut it off. What am I doing wrong? I honestly feel defeated by my seemingly bad luck with guys. I’m pretty active at school and I’m very sociable, but no one seems to want to pursue a relationship with me, and it sucks. Even my mom asks why I can’t get a boyfriend, and I never know what to tell her except, “Maybe it’ll happen one day?” Any advice? -Defeated

LETTER TO THE EDITOR I am glad to see how someone finally attempted to write a story covering the Occupy movement in the article “Pre-occupied with debate” in Tuesday’s edition of The Daily Toreador. I thought the previous story about the Occupy movement was a real joke. From the best I can tell, this is the first attempt to actually interview anyone from the movement. With this said, I did find the article somewhat confrontational and biased for the Tech Republicans. While reading it, I felt like I was reading something from FOX News’ website. Interviewing more people from both sides and actual witnesses to the altercation would have been a nice

way to approach this story without bias. Instead, as I stated, it sounded a little one-sided, especially since I was there in person to watch the story’s events unfold. Both sides were being somewhat unreasonable and making statements that would be seen as uncouth in a civilized debate. But, the article makes it sound like only the Occupy folks were the only ones being unreasonable. If this news organization is meant to be a voice of the students, then please speak the voice of both sides.  Zach Tate is a fine arts graduate student from West Plains, Missouri. ➤➤ zach.tate@ttu.edu

Dear Defeated:

If you are actively searching for a boyfriend, you will never find one. You need to just live life. Enjoy being single and having the opportunity to meet amazing people. Nowhere is it written that by the time you graduate college you need to be engaged or married. As life goes on, you will meet people who will stick and others who will pass you by, but you need to know that when the right person comes along, you will not have doubts. The relationship won’t be up and down, you won’t be worrying about a playboy and you won’t be questioning whether they have a girlfriend. Ignore what your friends say and what your mom says. Be confident in yourself and know that when the time comes for you to be with the right person, it will come. It is something that can’t be forced and needs to happen with time. Enjoy the next couple of months you have left in college and see where your road leads you. Good luck, and keep your head up. -Ioanna Questions can be emailed to Ioanna Makris at: imakris@dailytoreador.com Submissions must be limited to 350 words and will be edited for style and clarity.

She said she thought it might be Johnny because he wanted to be the boss. Christopher Forbus, a senior communication studies major from Littlefield who played Johnny in the murder mystery, said the cast spent about three weeks preparing for the play. The other cast members included Briana Loya playing Lydia, Ninon Zander playing Betty, Conner Lee Myers playing Pretty Boy, Grant Hollwell playing Butch and Robert Staley playing Officer Mulrooney. ➤➤pskinner@dailytoreador.com

Mysterious Dinner

Students enjoy food, entertainment By PAIGE SKINNER STAFF WRITER

There were eight suspects characters but only one murderer. Tech Activities Board pre-

sented Murder by the Mob on Wednesday, a murder mystery dinner. The play was served with a three-course meal, which included salad, Parmesan chicken and cheesecake.

The ballroom was full with about 200 people in attendance sitting at roundtables to watch the murder mystery play out. The play took place in the 1920s at a speakeasy, an establishment for illegally selling

alcohol. The different characters worked under the mob boss, Danny, played by David Vaughn, who gets shot in the middle of the play. Throughout the play, the characters point fingers at each other while trying to figure out who murdered Danny. The crowd laughed during the humorous parts of the play while also quietly discussing with each other which character they believed to have murdered Danny. MYSTERY continued on Page 5 ➤➤

The bright spot for the Mean Green was Chris Jones who finished with a game-high 31 points, 19 of which came in the second half. Robert Lewandowski found a rhythm on the block, as well as facing the basket for Tech, finishing with a team-high 17 points after only notching eight

in the season opener. In between the first and second half while the rest of the team was going through lay-up lines, the senior was on the sideline, furiously scribbling on the Tech whiteboard with Crockett standing engaged next to him. “(Lewandowski) is trying to coach those guys,” Gillispie said. “He’s taken on the responsibility of a great leader and figuring out, no matter how it feels to

We’ve been fortunate enough to come out with great energy, great effort and make plays on both ends of the floor.

The Red Raiders, an NCAA tournament team last year, raced to a 22-2 lead in the first eight minutes behind a balanced attack. Brown scored five points and Mallard, Shauntel Nobles and Christine Hyde each had four in the run. Texas Tech started the game shooting 9 of 17. "It's really important for us to come out and be the most aggressive team, play with a lot of passion," Texas Tech coach Kristy Curry said. "We've been fortunate enough to come out with great energy, great effort and make plays on both ends of the floor. When you make shots, you tend to sprint a little faster on defense." Texas Tech, ranked in the Top 25 for the first time since 2006, led 15-0 before Houston scored on Button's layup with 14:56 remaining in the first half. The Cougars missed their first five shots and committed five turnovers in the first five minutes. "We're trying to be all about defense," Smalls said, "and for us to come out at the beginning of the game and apply that much

defense, that helps us intimidate opponents and gets in their heads, and then we get easy baskets and easy layups." Houston closed the gap to 2513 with 5:43 remaining in the first half on a free throw by Button, but the Red Raiders finished the first half on a 14-3 run behind seven points by Brown. Texas Tech led 39-16 at the half. In the second half, the Red Raiders extended the lead to 39. Texas Tech dominated the undersized and inexperienced

Cougars down low with 34 points in the paint. On the other end of the floor, the Red Raiders seldom let Houston drive the lane. When they did, Mallard, Nobles or one of Tech's other posts was there to change a shot or contribute to Texas Tech's 10 blocks. Houston, which graduated six seniors and four starters off last season's NCAA tournament team, shot just 28 percent. The Cougars started their only two seniors, a junior and two freshmen. Houston coach Todd Buchanan

praised Texas Tech, which he said dismantled his team in every facet of the game. "They are very well coached," Buchanan said. "They are aggressive. Like we tell our kids when we were in film sessions, that is how you pressure the basketball. . All this is such an incredible learning curve for these kids. "I love their team. I think they have a really good team. I think it will be very interesting to see how they end up. I think they will have a good year."

Last week of bye weeks, time to solidify your team

TEXAS TECH RUNNING back DeAndre Washington balances himself while trying to run the ball forward during Tech's 66-6 loss to the Cowboys at Jones AT&T Stadium on Saturday.

namely Fajardo, did so by one point and had the Wolf Pack in position to escape Lubbock with a win Sept. 24. Tannehill, Klein and Barnett were a part of efforts that resulted in at least 41 points by Texas A&M, Kansas State and Iowa

State, respectively. Franklin, however, may pose the most complete package Tech has seen all year. Franklin, a sophomore, has thrown for 2,381 yards and rushed for 642, scoring a total of 27 touchdowns. With the loss of top runn i n g b a c k H e n r y J o s e y, Missouri may rely more on Franklin than ever before. With this in mind, Tuberville said Franklin is the biggest threat the Red Raiders face

when stopped by the police? when questioned by the police? when charged with a crime? when asked to do field sobriety tests? when asked to take a breath/blood test?

from the Tigers’ offense. But, if the Red Raiders fail to make tackles, it won’t matter who Missouri puts on the field Saturday. “For us on defense, it’s obviously their quarterback, you know,” Tuberville said. “We’ve had problems with quarterbacks running the football and there’s not a lot of different things you can do other than what we’ve done. We’ve just got to tackle better.” ➤➤jrodriguez@dailytoreador.com

This week marks the last round of bye weeks. So, at this point, your team is pretty much set in stone. If you are lucky enough to still have a trade deadline active, you can certainly try to make that last move to get you over the edge. Make sure to look at the playoff schedules. You don’t want to trade for a player who has to take on top defenses during your playoff weeks. Players I love down the stretch Rob Gronkowski — New England Patriots tight end “The Gronk” is back. The Patriots are having a tough time stopping teams and often have to throw the ball around to get back into the game. Gronkowski fell out of favor for a few weeks, but his climb back as Tom Brady’s safety blanket has been excellent. He has announced his presence with authority and is a mustplay for owners going down the stretch. Mike Wallace — Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Wallace has been pretty good during the past few weeks, but he could be great during the next few weeks. The Steelers only play one decent defense until the end of the season. Wallace is a big-play guy, so the actual number of receptions might scare off point-per-reception teams, but he will see the ball plenty as the Steelers look to lock down a playoff spot. Carson Palmer and Denarius Moore — Oakland Raiders quarterback and wide receiver With Darren McFadden being banged up, the Raiders will need to throw the ball to climb back into the playoff picture. Palmer found Moore plenty and they should be the big-play duo for the Raiders. Their defense is not the best, so the Raiders may need to play catch-up quite a

Cody Stoots

F

bit. They only play one good defense antasy down the stretch, ootball so Palmer should WEEKLY certainly be an option for owners of a bye week this week or for Matt Schaub owners who have been affected by Schaub’s injury. Injury diagnosis Jahvid Best —Detroit Lions running back I don’t see Best making his return this year. Concussions are scary and the NFL is more careful than ever with players who show head injury symptoms. As the Lions start to flat-line, his backups are not legitimate options down the stretch. If you are a Best owner, all you can do at this point is sit and hope. Darren McFadden — Oakland Raiders running back I don’t think he will play this week, but he should eventually get back on the field. I don’t know if his value is as high as it was at the start of the season, but he has a high upside if he does make it back. The Raiders do play a few tough defenses, though, so if you were able to swap the back for another, take the chance. Andre Johnson — Houston Texans wide receiver He will return from injury after the bye week, but without Matt Schaub in the mix, his value is lowered enormously. Go with your gut Don’t think too hard about who plays for your team. No one is going to give you a hard time if Ray Rice doesn’t score more points than a bench running back of yours one week. Don’t try to beat the system. Highly rated players are good because they can do things on a consistent basis. Sure, there is the occasional risky move, but don’t bench a star to take a risk this late in the season.  Stoots is a senior broadcast journalism major from Houston. ➤➤cody.stoots@ttu.edu

“Offensively, for us, it’s their defensive front,” Tuberville said, regarding the offense’s main concern. “They have three seniors. They’re very active. (They do a) good job of putting pressure on everybody they play. They do a lot of games and twists — all those kind of things. So, it gives your offensive line problems.” Missouri QB James Franklin to provide Tech another mobile threat First, it was Cody Fajardo. Then, Ryan Tannehill came along. Collin Klein got his shot, as did Jared Barnett. They all share one glaring similarity: the ability to make plays by running. Mobile quarterbacks have been difficult for the Red Raiders to stop, as all of the aforementioned quarterbacks experienced big statistical days against Tech. The more important statistic is three of those four led their teams to wins. The only one to come up short,

Red Raiders lose to Spartans in close match MLB forcing Houston

out of National League

By MIKE GUTIERREZ STAFF WRITER

After exchanging matches with San Jose State through four sets, the Red Raiders were unable to close out the Spartans, losing 15-12 in their final match in Spartan Gym on Tuesday. The Spartans overcame early deficits in both the first and third sets and staved off a late Red Raider run to secure the victory. Head coach Don Flora said the Red Raiders should have come away with the victory against San Jose State. “This was a match we thought we could take care of,” Flora said. “We let the first set get away from us, which we should’ve won. We have to give San Jose credit. They competed all night.” This loss to the Spartans ends a 14-game winning streak against non-conference opponents for the Red Raiders. The Red Raiders committed 12 service errors in the match, several of which came late in the sets. Tech only had committed 13 service errors in the last three matches combined. Despite a disappointing loss on the road, Flora said this close loss shows his team is still improving. “These are matches where we show our progress and we continue to stay the course,” he said. “We continue to grow and learn — that’s all we’re asking ourselves to do every day.

lieves two 15-team leagues would create a more proportionate schedule and has urged baseball to make the switch. With schedules for next season already completed, the earliest such a move could take place is 2013. Time is running out for approval of the Astros deal: Crane has said that his offer, which was announced on May 16, expires Nov. 30. Messages were left seeking from Major League Baseball, but Commissioner Bud Selig did address the Astros' situation during a Twitter chat on Monday. "For 15/15 realignment, Houston would be the team moving to AL West. Would create more fairness in baseball," Selig tweeted via the Colorado Rockies' feed. He also added that "15 teams in each league would necessitate interleague play every day but it will be better schedule overall." The Astros currently play in the six-team NL Central. The AL West is the only league in the majors with four teams (Rangers, Angels, Athletics and Mariners).

HOUSTON (AP) — Major League Baseball told Houston businessman Jim Crane it would not approve his purchase of the Astros unless he agreed to move the team to the American League, The Associated Press has learned. Crane was forced to agree to move the sale along, a person familiar with the negotiations said Wednesday on condition of anonymity because no official announcement has been made by MLB or the Astros. Approval of the sale could be announced as early as Thursday at a meeting of baseball executives in Milwaukee. Crane reportedly agreed to the move in exchange for a drop in the sales price valued earlier this year at $680 million. The person who spoke to the AP could not confirm the sales price. "We'll let baseball talk about that," current owner Drayton McLane said Wednesday night. "There were a lot of adjustments, so we'll just wait and see what they have to say (Thursday)." The players' association be-

Tech beats UNT to go 2-0 Tuberville talks under Gillispie Mizzou D-line,

QB Franklin

By EVAN JANSA STAFF WRITER

No one rushed the court, which caused a smile to splash across Jaye Crockett’s face. Crockett was one of the few Red Raiders who played in the overtime loss to North Texas last year in Denton, which lead to an impromptu celebration by fans and students at The Super Pit. This time Tech withstood a furious comeback and flurry of buckets from Chris Jones to hold on for a 69-64 victory. This time was different, but how much different? “We won,” Crockett said tonguein-cheek, “It felt way better. They rushed the court and stuff last year and that was horrible having to deal with that and see all that, so I definitely wanted payback.” The sophomore found retribution in first appearance for the Red Raiders (2-0) this season after dealing with an injured knee. Crockett finished the game with nine points, but that wasn’t his biggest contribution against the Mean Green (1-1). “Jaye was great,” head coach Billy Gillispie said. “He’s out of shape. He’s still hobbled a little bit with his knee. (He) got nine big defensive rebounds — fantastic — and played 33 minutes.” The final minutes, however, were the most contended and crucial of the game. After building a 53-40 lead in the second half, Tech found itself nursing a one-point lead with the ball and less than 30 seconds remaining. Ty Nurse was fouled on a run-

coach Johnny Jones said about the Red Raiders who were 23 of 25 from the line. “We thought a couple times we had them in some trap situations that we thought we were going to come up with some turnovers and we didn’t.”

Some Texas Tech players have not been in ideal shape for practicing this week as the football team prepares for a trip to Columbia, Mo. The problem is not a matter of conditioning, though. Some Red Raiders simply fell victim to a gastrointestinal virus, also referred to as the “GI virus” or “stomach flu,” though it is unrelated to influenza. “(Tuesday), we had, I think, six guys who had the GI virus,” Tech coach Tommy Tuberville said after Wednesday’s practice, “and we’re missing three today. So, it’s kind of going around the team. Hopefully we can stay away from that for this weekend because we’re going to need everyone possible.” The condition is self-limiting and tends to last anywhere from one to six days. Missouri’s strength on defense Looking to get back on track, the Red Raiders are faced with the task of trying to put points on the scoreboard against Missouri’s defense — the Big 12 Conference’s third-best defense as far as points allowed per game. The Tigers give up an average of 24.5 points per contest, trailing only Texas and Oklahoma. Tech, once a top-five scoring offense in the country, is the Big 12’s sixth-ranked scoring offense, scoring 33.7 points per game despite having scored only 33 points in its last three games combined. Tuberville pointed toward Missouri’s defensive line as the strength of its defense because of the experience level. Defensive end Jacquies Smith and defensive tackles Terrell Resonno and Dominique Hamilton anchor a defensive front seven that has totaled 22 sacks this season, which is good for fourth among Big 12 teams. That, combined with an array of moves, will keep the heads of Tech’s offensive linemen on a swivel throughout the game.
