FAU alumni Rachel Kijewski and Brandon Block appear cheerful while harnessed to a tree in Briger Forest.

JORDAN ROBRISH CONTRIBUTOR

FAU alumni live in trees to prevent their destruction

F

or more than six weeks, environmental activists living strapped to slash pines in a forest across from the Jupiter campus have faced the elements — and police — while protesting the construction of a research facility that, according to them, would kill endangered plants and animals. “I want to protect the Briger Forest from destruction,” said 25-yearold Brandon Block, a member of environmental group Everglades Earth First, and one of four FAU alumni who had been living in the forest. “I have been living at peace with nature up in the trees feeling like a bird in a nest.” But according to Rachel Kijewski, another one of the tree-sitters on March 21, Palm Beach Gardens Police confiscated and destroyed treesitters’ equipment, burned the trees where some protesters were living and arrested some of them, including Block, on counts of trespassing. Courtney Claar, 23, was also among the activists arrested. “I definitely feel today that there was an increase in the amount of repression of this protest that’s going on,” Claar told the Palm Beach Post. Claar said that group members had been collectively warned that the space they were inhabiting was a no-trespassing area, but said that March 21 marked the first significant police presence inside the forest. The remaining protesters have immerged deeper into the forest in an attempt to avoid police and keep construction from moving in, Kijewski said. The tree-sitters are protesting the expansion and construction of a 70acre facility. The city and the Scripps Florida Research Institute want to build a biotech laboratory on the land in the Briger Forest, just south of Donald Ross Road. The environmentalists believe if construction into the 683-acre forest proceeds, many threatened and endangered species of plants and animals like the hand fern, cabbage palm, gopher tortoises and screeching bald eagle, the national emblem, will lose their habitat and die. Scripps is the largest not-for-profit biomedical research firm in the world. They are involved in conducting research to help cure diseases such as Parkinson’s, cancer and the HIV/AIDS, according to its website. Scripps already has a permanent facility next to FAU’s Jupiter campus. It employs more than 300 scientists, technicians and administrators. The planned expansion into the forest calls for an additional 1.6-million-square-foot Scripps Research and Development Biotech facility, surrounded by over 2,700 homes. Once the project is completed, Scripps is planning a partnership with FAU, environmentalists said. According to the environmental group, Scripps had already planned to build their new facility on a patch of land in Lake Worth known as Mecca Farms. The Palm Beach County Commission agreed to buy 1,919 acres of land for $60 million in 2004. The commission then spent $40 million to plan, pull permits and begin construction, while spending an additional $51 million on a water pipeline to service Mecca Farms. However, the proposed Scripps facility on Mecca Farms was never built due to mounting pressure from citizens and environmental groups such as Everglades Earth First. Kathleen Ryan, an executive assistant for Scripps, declined to comment for this story. The environmental activists said they will continue to live in the forest. They plan on continuing to protest until they achieve what they seek or until police finally detain all of them. MARCH 29, 2011 3

KEISHA HATCHETT CONTRIBUTOR Myers struggled to carry her books around all day for her five classes, which meet on FAU’s Jupiter campus. The senior education major wanted what many other students wanted- a place to store books in between classes. At the beginning of the 2011 spring semester, Myers got her wish. A special committee in the Jupiter House of Representatives implemented the pilot service, which allows students to rent out lockers for the day at no cost. The service is focused on helping the more than 2,000 commuter students like Myers who use their cars or backpacks for storage. Located in the Burrow, the student union on the Jupiter campus, the red lockers were intended for various clubs and organizations but went unused. Speaker of the House Richard Smith saw an opportunity to utilize them, and formed the Jupiter Campus House of Representatives Special Committee on Student Lockers in the fall of 2010. While he may have started the legislation, it was a commuter student who started the campaign. Senior anthropology major Sacha Franklin-Jeune approached Smith to urge him on behalf of fellow commuter student, senior art and women’s studies major, Renata Rodrigues, to find a place for students to store their things. Rodrigues took over the campaign from there. “He [Rodrigues] was the main spokesperson,” said Smith. “I just made the request a House-led initiative when I became Speaker.”

Now, to rent a locker, students simply need to check in at the front desk in the student union and provide their z-number. While the program is easy and convenient, it still has its flaws. For one, lockers must be opened and closed by the Activity Center Manager (ACM) on duty, since students cannot have their own locks. This takes up extra time between classes, as the students have to wait on another person. The lockers are also only available Monday through Friday from 8 am to 11 pm. At the end of the day, students must clear out their belongings. However, students can request extra time and the Committee is pushing to extend the hours. There are currently no fees for students who fail to pick up their belongings on the scheduled time. The Boca campus also provides lockers for students. Located in the Student Union, the lockers are also free for students to use much like those on the Jupiter campus. However, students can use their own locks or stick with the ones provided for twentyfive cents per day. They may also pick whichever locker they want to use, as long as it is available. Freshman Christina Stanley, whose major is undecided, commutes from West Palm Beach and uses the lockers for more than just her books. “I was giving myself back pains because of [my books] and all the free stuff I get in the Breezeway,” said Stanley. Now she does not have to worry about that. But this doesn’t mean that the Boca campus has a perfect program either. “They’re really helpful,” said Stanley. “I wish they were a little bigger but beggars can’t be choosers.” MARCH 29, 2011 5

20-minute speech sounded like a political campaign, Alex Sink, the former gubenatorial-candidate and business leader, had one key point in her message for women interested in finances: Keep your personal values. “My goal is to inspire you to take your own personal values, take those personal values that you have, and build for success in both your personal life, of course, but also in your business and in your community life.” Sink’s presence on March 18 at the College of Business was part of this year’s Women’s Leadership Forum, an event designed to promote understanding about issues of concern to women in society during Women’s Month. “For entrepreneurs and small-business owners, business values are personal values. Your personal core values define who you are and what you believe,” said the former Florida Chief Financial officer and president of Florida operations for Bank of America. “The first step is to identify your core beliefs,” Sink said. “I knew that one of my personal values was to serve and help people and that led me into banking. Banking was also a profession that exuded trust and integrity.” When Sink transferred to Miami, she became the president of Bank of America in Miami-Dade County, where she got her first professional power, she said. “Especially for women, I think we tend to shy away from even using the word power or admitting that we like power or thinking about what we can do with power because I think it sometimes has maybe a negative connotation.” Sink gave many examples of how she exercised her power to do good for people, such as a mentorship program which supported the careers of women and minorities in her banking company. “To whom much is given, much is expected,” said Sink, quoting the Bible. She then explained how she made a difference in the second-most powerful political job as chief financial officer of Florida. “[The challenge was] to marry my values and that power to do good for the people of Florida. The only boss that I had was my own conscience and values and you, the people of Florida.” There were three females panels which met to discuss business issues after Sink’s speech. The panels comprised female business owners, FAU faculty and member of the press. “Women, we are especially equipped to offer a different perspective, whether at work or in the board room, at a nonprofit organization or at an educational institution,” said Sink near the end of her speech. “But while we may be equipped with all this talent, it makes no difference unless our voices are heard.”

An FAU professor’s story about his struggle to get home safely from Japan

MONICA RUIZ SENIOR REPORTER Osgood and his wife Rachel were on a bullet train leaving Kyoto for Tokyo when the 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami hit Japan. With no power, the train came to a complete stop, leaving the cars rocking back and forth like a boat on the tracks. For five hours they were stranded on the train, not sure about what just happened. “Because of the language barrier, and the general confusion, only gradually did we learn that Japan had been struck by the largest earthquake in its history, the fifth largest ever recorded anywhere,” said Osgood, a history professor at FAU, on his Facebook page on March 13, two days after the earthquake hit. Slowly the train began moving again. When they reached Tokyo, they were among thousands of people stuck walking in the city looking for a place to stay. “Tokyo is one huge ... land of refugees, including us,” wrote Osgood’s wife on her Facebook page on March 11. She also said that she was safe and that they were praying to get out the next day. They found shelter in a hotel. The staff fed them soup and provided them with showers. That Friday night Tokyo experienced multiple aftershocks — as many as 50 — reaching a magnitude above 6.0, Osgood recalled. enneth

Kenneth Osgood and his wife, Rachel, were in Japan for nine days before the earthquake hit. Osgood went for a conference about U.S. propaganda in Asia during the Cold War.

The phone lines were jammed, and all transportation came to a halt — they didn’t think they would make it back to the States. Osgood made contact with his dad, who was trying desperately to find them a flight home. The next day, holding onto hope, the Osgoods headed to the subway station. The crucial moment for them was deciding whether to head north toward the airport, or take a train south to Osaka. Going north meant moving closer to one of Japan’s nuclear reactors, while heading south meant the possibility of facing tsunamis. “All the Japanese were packed on the train and my heart was telling me to get on the train and try to get out of Japan at Narita. My brain was hearing all the Japanese people we’d spoken to say the airport will still be closed and this train will move slowly and take 5 to 6 hours and it wasn’t worth trying to get to Narita,” said Osgood’s wife via e-mail. “Then, I heard my angel call my name from a jam-packed train: ‘RACHEL!’” Their angel, a flight attendant from New Zealand whom they had met at the hotel, advised them to go north to the airport. She assured them they would get a flight — and she was right. “With a throng of people, we boarded one of the very first trains to go north towards Narita airport. It was a slow ride. En route we received word that the nuclear reactor to the north of us was releasing radioactivity to prevent it from going critical. The previous day we had visited Hiroshima, and the news sent our heart rates soaring. We imagined the worst.”

They made it safely to the airport, breezed though security and boarded a nearly empty plane. Within 24 hours of the disaster, they were on a flight back home. “Earplugs, eye masks, and sleeping pills did the trick -- woke up about an hour before landing. I was never so happy to be on a plane, and never has anyone been so happy to be in Detroit.” Many people helped them make it safely back to their family and friends. People stopped to give them food or water, helped translate and gave directions. As Osgood added to a Facebook post, the only reason they got out of Japan was because of his wife. “I wanted to head south to Osaka, a 5 hour train ride under optimal conditions (and those were not optimal conditions). She insisted we try the Tokyo airport at Narita, which I thought would be jammed with throngs of people trying to catch flights. But she said, “We have to try.” She was right. And because she was right we caught one of the first flights out of Japan. Damn -- once again, I am so glad I married up.” On Saturday, March 12, Osgood announced on his Facebook that they arrived safely back in the U.S. Both Osgood and his wife are still shaken up by these events. Most of the information from this story comes from Osgood’s Facebook page. He told the UP he and his wife needed to recover from the events and denied an interview, but allowed contents from an e-mail sent to family and friends and couples’ Facebook posts to be published.

Top FAU officials refuse to speak to the UP March 22, an FAU spokeswoman responded to the UP’s request to interview Provost Diane Alperin and Dean Manjunath Pendakur about the dean’s resignation. The UP asked why both of them refused to be interviewed by phone or in person. She wrote, “they are not refusing to be interviewed, rather the interview is taking place in writing.” Questions were sent by email and responses were received quickly. Some of the answers didn’t answer the questions. The UP decided to provide a Q&A. The text below has not been edited by any member of the UP. Received on March 24:

everal things happened on the third floor

of the administration building last week. Dean Manjunath Pendakur resigned. Days later, his boss, Provost Diane Alperin, was served with a list of comments on the dean’s performance. Pendakur said the two are not connected — he just feels it’s time to teach and learn again. On March 18, Alperin announced to the university that Pendakur would continue his term as dean until the end of the spring semester in May, at which point he will go on “study leave” and return in January 2012. Then he will become a professor in the communication school, a track in tune with his education. The announcement listed Pendakur’s financial contributions to the university. As dean, Pendakur oversees the College of Arts and Letters, a multimillion dollar budget, scores of faculty and tenure decisions. The college offers 26 bachelor’s degrees,

22 graduate degrees and 11 certificates, according to www.fau.edu. The announcement failed to mention, however, the lawsuit and string of grievances filed against Pendakur from the department of philosophy last year. But according to his email, Pendakur — whose salary is $207,050 and will remain as such throughout his sabbatical — did not step down because of the controversy or the consecutive faculty evaluations that demanded his resignation. Instead, he claimed that the reasons for his resignation were in his resignation letter. The closest to a reason in that letter appeared in the last paragraph: “It is time for me to return to my scholarship once again and to the classroom.” Why it is time for that, however, Pendakur refused to say. According to the opening line of his letter, he may not know himself: “It is with mixed feelings that I am submitting this letter of resignation from the position of Dean.” UPRESSONLINE.COM

Can you comment on the timing of your resignation against the timing of the publication of the faculty evaluations? The reasons for my resignation are detailed in my letter of resignation. I was communicating with the provost regarding my resignation prior to seeing the faculty union survey. The president did not have any discussions with me in regards to my resignation. 4. What will you be studying during your study leave and will you publish anything in your absence? What classes will you be teaching when you return in Spring 2011? As with all academic departments, the chair of the department will assign the courses for Spring 2012. During my study leave, I plan to work on a project that deals with globalization of media in India and the decline of journalistic standards and ethics. 5. As a respected scholar in film studies for many years with a very well-respected mentor, are you excited to be going back to pursuing more scholarly endeavors rather than administrative ones? Absolutely excited! I will also look forward to working more closely with students in the classroom and in helping them develop research projects, an aspect of the academic life I have always enjoyed.

6. What do you hope to see in the college’s acting dean? In the college’s next official dean? I’d like to see the next dean continue some of the important initiatives that we have launched, including the Middle East Studies Institute, and the expansion of academic and public service activities under the Peace Studies Program. The Living Room Theaters is a new and unique initiative that is already doing well, and it will help establish FAU as a major university in film studies. Our fine arts programs have grown substantially, and I hope they receive more sustained financial support. I’d also like to see continued growth in enrollment, research activities and community outreach. 7. Can you comment on the general nature of the evaluations from this spring as they relate to and about you? While some were vague and accusatory, others were specific and backed-up. Do you think any of the comments held any merit? Why or why not? I review the survey results and value everyone’s opinion. Unfortunately, since the responses are anonymous, I can only review the information provided. I also understand that these opinions are not representative of the entire faculty within the College, as only approximately 50% of the college faculty participated.

It’s not an easy job.” Tim Lenz, president of the faculty senate, said that the faculty aided in making the dean’s tenure and resignation controversial. “I don’t know much about the decisionmaking process other than the fact that the Dean was up for his third-year review,” Lenz said. “The college faculty views and the results of the UFF administrator evaluations were probably taken into consideration as part of the review.” The Faculty Assessment of Administrators is an annual effort undertaken by the FAU chapter of the United Faculty of Florida for faculty to anonymously rate and comment

on the professional performance, decisionmaking and overall collegiality of deans and upper-level administrators throughout the university. A total of 871 professors, librarians and counseling staff represented by the union were invited to participate in the online evaluation. A total of 95 faculty completed the survey from the College of Arts and Letters, a 50-percent increase over last year. In the comments section of the evaluation, 51 of them — more than half of those who participated — called for Pendakur’s resignation. (To see the section of the evaluations that relates to Pendakur, go to www.upressonline.com.) Tracy, who sent the evaluations to the administration the weekend after Pendakur’s Thursday resignation, said that last year’s comments were similar to this year’s. “After getting the responses in 09-10, it might not have been a bad idea to say to the dean: Look it, the people who are upset

with your style — perhaps there’s a way of going about things differently,” Tracy said. “There’s definitely a pattern in terms of his management style. From what I gather, sometimes he was less formal than faculty expected him to be. It seems people took offense to some of his remarks.” These people, or the faculty in the College of Arts and Letters, may be “difficult,” according to Tracy. Jeffrey Morton, acting chair of the philosophy department, seems to agree. “There are very difficult people to work with,” Morton said. “The problem isn’t the deans — the problem is the college.” According to an early statement from Provost Alperin, the search for a new dean will begin shortly. Meanwhile, an interim dean will be selected from within the college to fill in until a replacement shows up. Requests for nominations from various departments were sent out last week.

OPINION

Why were you created?! Top ten most annoying fictional sidekicks

relief character and relief from a comic character. He was funny at first, but after four movies, enough is enough. Donkey caused Shrek more trouble than he already had, and constantly complained about everything. Not to mention he was dumb as a rock and somehow mated with a dragon which is both disgusting and biologically impossible. Then again, so is talking donkeys and dragons.

05

09

Chuckie Finster RUGRATS For being a baby, he was really a baby. He was Tommy Pickles’ best friend, but he was a horrible friend. All he did was shy away from everything and everyone. Chucky complained, cried, and ran away from everything. Compared to the terrifying knife wielding Chucky from the movies of almost the exact same resemblance, this Chuckie is a complete pushover. There was not doubt he would grow to be a socially awkward obsessivecompulsive person. And when we saw him in the later teenage version of “Rugrats”, he was still…well… awkward.

Snarf

THUNDERCATS

Snarf was the sidekick cat pet of the humanoid cat superheroes. Why these cats had a pet cat is beyond us, but what we do know is Snarf was an extremely useless character. He added nothing to the story and constantly spewed nonsense dialogue where he had to yelp the “snaaaaarrrfffff” after every word.

04

Scrappy Doo

SCOOBY DOO, WHERE ARE YOU?!

Scooby and Shaggy would have made this list had it not been for Scrappy Doo. He was introduced to the show as Scooby’s nephew, and if that didn’t boggle your mind, who is Scooby’s sibling and how does Scrappy just dropped by from time to time? Never-the-less, Scrappy was a poser. He pretended to be tough and constantly annoyed everyone with how much he wanted to fight, but when it came time to step up, he was nowhere to be seen.

08

Jubilee X-MEN from the Generation

Jubilee is X class of “X-Men” and often played a sidekick to Wolverine in the comic books and television show. She dressed like Doc Brown from Back to the Future Part 2, and shot essentially what were fireworks from her hands. Her mutant powers in comparison are like shooting a bunch of bottle rockets on the fourth of July, while your neighbors shoot off an illegal batch of rainbow colored motors. In other words, she was lame. Marvel gave Jubilee her own comic series in 2004, but she was so unpopular that it was cancelled after just six issues. Marvelous.

Jimmy Olson SUPERMAN photojournalist at the Daily

A Planet, Jimmy Olsen was the “Peter Parker” of DC comics…except for the fact that he wasn’t a superhero or cool. Olsen admired Superman to the point of obsession and when he wasn’t whining about how much he wished he was the man of steel, he was following around Clark Kent and Louis Lane like a typical third wheel.

Steve Roger, also known as “Captain America”. If you don’t know much about Bucky, that’s because he was quickly removed from the comic book world due to unpopularity. However, he made a triumphant return when he took over for the presumed dead “Captain America”. Then DC comics pulled a “just kidding” and brought back good ol’ Rogers, which once

Ma-Ti

CAPTAIN PLANET

Captain Planet was a beloved childhood cartoon that promoted a clean Earth. The “Planeteers” were teenagers from around the globe that wore rings, which had cool powers like fire, water, earth, and wind. Then there was Ma-Ti…a twelve year old kid from the Amazon who had the ring of heart that allowed him to instill love and compassion in the hearts of his enemies. Because, when thugs with machine guns surround you, forget the power of fire or wind, heart is what’s going to get those big bad meat heads to drop their weapons… right. All we can say to that is thank god he didn’t get a spin off show.

02

Jason Todd BATMAN who can be seen

Jason Todd, in the comics, animated movies and television shows, was the second Robin behind Dick Greyson, who went on to become Nighwing. Greyson was an awesome Robin, Todd…not so much. He was cocky, loud, annoying, and eventually got himself killed by the Joker leaving Batman mentally messed up for years. Way to go.

Jar Jar Binks STAR WARS EPISODE #1

This may be the third time we've used a Star Wars reference, and yes, this is the second time it's made the number one spot, but Jar Jar Binks is by far the most annoying sidekick character ever created. As if watching a whining young Anakin Skywalker wasn't painful enough, George Lucas decided to give the future Darth Vader an annoying never-shuts-his-mouth sidekick alien.

Then there are the sidekicks who are just plain annoying, pointless and painful to watch. A bad sidekick can bring even the coolest badass lead character down. It’s a sad truth that we the viewer have to suffer. You can almost guarantee any animal or child superhero sidekick is an automatic fail. But there are hundreds of supporting characters that bring the whole entertainment aspect of a show or comic down.

Tapped out OPINION

An MMA was postponed indefinitely RYAN CORTES STAFF REPORTER

H

e’s squirming in his chair now.

“That was not handled through us at all,” said Erdman. “It was never an officially booked event from what I understand. Our office never had tickets to sell for it.” Roger Krahl, the man in charge of “match-making,” putting the fights together, knew the main event title fight was canceled at the same time Pinto and Trepeck did — a month beforehand. Krahl didn’t respond to two phone calls and a voicemail. I spoke with Trepeck again, on March 24. This time he said the main reason for the postponement was the loss of a single investor. The event needed $140,000 from investors, and losing an investor crippled those chances Trepeck said there was absolutely, positively no way

the event would be cancelled, despite there being just six weeks of school left. “That’s not going to happen,” said Trepeck, flatly. If the event was “officially” postponed on March 10, when Trepeck made the cancellation public, certainly there would be ticket sales issues. There’s no shot RadRok MMA wouldn’t have sold tickets to an event that was now 15 days away. “We didn’t even open ticket sales yet, so no,” said Trepeck. With an event 15 days away, if RadRok MMA hadn’t begun ticket sales, when exactly did they plan to? The day before? Trepeck began squirming again. “Uh, um. That’s a ... uh ... That’s a long story, but kind of an easy answer,” said Trepeck. “Um, the athletic department did not have a functioning ticket system, OK? There was no digitized system that says where each person is sitting.” Shocking, I know, but I was confused again. There needed to be a separate digital system to sell tickets for an MMA event? Didn’t the FAU ticket office use the same system for everything? I called Scott Erdman, the senior director of premium seating for the ticket office. “That was not handled through us at all,” said Erdman. “It was never an officially booked event from what I understand. Our office never had tickets to sell for it.” Never even officially booked. But was it necessary to build a whole new system for an MMA event? Especially one that was never even booked? “Nope,” said Erdman. At some point, Pinto, Trepeck and Krahl knew the event was never going to happen. When exactly they knew, though, is unclear. Perhaps they knew from the start.

For weeks, Hayden Trepeck has been avoiding my overtures to talk about a postponed MMA event. He’s here now, through some strong-arming and wishful thinking, and he’s giving me little in the way of tangible facts. Fight fans in Boca were supposed to be treated to an oncampus mixed martial arts event on March 25. Instead, the event was postponed indefinitely. Back on Feb. 23 I met with Damien Pinto, the man in charge of promoting the event and getting seats filled, and Trepeck, the announcer of the fights. Armed with only a promotional flyer, I asked a question about the ISKA (International Sport Karate Association) World Championship fight that was plastered and promoted all over FAU’s basketball arena. “I have to take those down,” said Pinto in late February. “I’m not sure if that fight is even going to go off. It was off, it was on, it was off.” I was confused. Here was the promoter of the event, with a printed flyer sitting in front of him, saying that fight would no longer be so. Instead of 10 fights, the card was down to nine, with the previously scheduled main event no longer on the agenda. “That fight, actually, I think is off the table,” said Pinto about the ISKA World Championship fight. Losing a single fight may not have damaged the event since he had nine others lined up. Except that, the canceled fight was the main event-the only championship fight holding the event upright. The most attractive fight of the night was now gone.

As of print time, Pinto refused to comment further, citing obligations with other ventures, including his promotion of the Ultra Music Festival. On March 10, 15 days after promotion began, Trepeck announced that the event was postponed indefinitely. On March 18, I ran into Trepeck, donning a black suit and appearing to be in a hurry. Why was the event postponed? “The first thing that happened is the championship fighter postponed the event because of conditioning,” said Trepeck. “And secondly we’re bringing in new investors to make things bigger and better for next time.” I was still confused. The championship fight had been cancelled as of Feb. 23 when I spoke with Pinto. It made little sense to pin the postponement of the event on a fact already known.

Near the midway point of the season, FAU’s baseball team stands at 16-8 record as it looks to retain its Sun Belt crown

ABOVE: Second baseman Raymond Church tied the school record for consecutive game hitting streak at 24. So far this season he sits on a .351 batting average, 33 hits, 2 home runs, and 15 RBIs. RIGHT: So far this season, pitcher Jake Meiers stands at a 1-3 record with a 3.25 ERA. He has 19 hits, 7 walks and struck out 12 batters.

MARK GIBSON STAFF REPORTER FAU’s baseball team can take away one thing from the first half of its season, it’s to avoid making the simple mistakes that have plagued them to this point. The Owls stand on a winning 16-8 (5-1 Sun Belt Conference) record, but it hasn’t been as easy as it appears. Coming into the season as reigning Sun Belt champions, FAU managed to start the year by sweeping Hofstra University in the opening series, beating University of Miami, and going on to have a five-game winning streak. But just when the Owls were sitting on a comfortable 10-3 record, Virginia Tech and Stony Brook University came to Boca Raton to give the Owls a big reality check. “We were arrogant and we didn’t compete,” said head coach John McCormack. “We just think that because we are FAU that these teams will eventually fall over, and they’re not [going to].” FAU fell into a three-game skid in which mistakes and poor at-bats led to almost embarrassing losses. But one shining pillar of hope that helped bring the Owls out of a bad downward spiral was second baseman Raymond Church. Carrying over from his 2010 postseason, Church went on a 24-game hitting streak that tied the FAU school record set by Kevin Connacher in 1994. As he got closer to the record each game, even when the Owls were losing, the entire team would cheer from the dugout as if they had a World Series title on the line. “The streak was always in the back of my mind,” said Church. “I’m happy about it, but I would rather go 0-4 in a game and have the team win than lose and keep the streak.” 20 MARCH 29, 2011

f

Not all of the Owls’ losses can be blamed on just the team’s performance alone. McCormack has made numerous trips from the dugout to the umpires to argue calls that were blatantly bad. In one game in particular, against Seaton Hall where FAU lost 8-4 in extra innings, senior Andy Mee came from his position in right field to close the game for FAU as they were leading 4-3. On a ground ball hit back to Mee by Seton Hall, Mee threw to second base for a force out. Shortstop Nick DelGuidice caught the ball on the bag and made the motion for first for the double play but stopped as Seton Hall center fielder Zach Granite was called safe by the third base umpire. The double play would have won the game for FAU, but instead, a runner scored to tie the game. The call made by the umpire was undeniably wrong, and unfortunately, it wasn’t the first time it’s happened this season. “I thought it was a terrible call by the umpire that changed the complexion of the inning,” said McCormack. “Even [Seton Hall third baseman Zach] Granite admitted it to [third baseman Sean] Bukovich later at third.” But aside from the officials, senior players like Mee, and first baseman Dan Scheffler, who were speculated to have a big impact on the season, have remained quiet. Mee has picked up his at-bat percentage as the season has rolled on and he now leads the team with four home runs, but his pitching has proven to be poor as his ERA sits at 10.50 with a 0-1 record. As for Scheffler, he’s only had a few shinning moments with 13 RBIs and two home runs. His atrocious 30 strikeouts overshadow those positives,

though. Scheffler leads the team in strikeouts, and the next highest player is Church at only 18. But a surprise impact player at the plate has been junior outfielder Alex Hudak, who leads the team with a .417 batting average on 30 hits, 15 RBIs and one home run. On the mound for FAU, it’s no secret that junior Paul Davis is the team’s best pitcher. Sitting on a 4-0 record with a 1.64 ERA, he has struck out 25 batters and only allowed three walks. In the Owls’ second game against Florida International University, Davis pitched a full nine innings in which he only allowed seven hits, two runs and one walk and struck out seven batters. “I wasn’t going to let coach take me out of the game,” Davis told FAUOwlAccess.com in the postgame interview. “My adrenaline gets going and I just start throwing pitches and it is just chaos.” With FAU starting to get into its first batch of Sun Belt Conference games, it’s too early to tell whether it will be able to finish atop the conference once again. However, the Owls have proven that they can learn from their mistakes as they have avoided getting swept, achieved comefrom-behind victories, and have an overall mentality of protecting their Sun Belt championship title. “Our first game of the season we wanted to win 800 to nothing in the first inning and strike out 75 guys,” said McCormack. “There was so much excitement coming off of last season. All the seniors on this team want to accomplish so much.” UPRESSONLINE.COM
