100 years of history: USU and the US Military By Shelby Black STUDENT LIFE SENIOR WRITER

A hundred years ago, Utah State University

was filled with soldiers training on the Quad and Old Main. Other buildings on campus were being used as barracks.

The university’s history is intertwined with

the United States military. This history will now be honored with a new war memori-

al being dedicated in front of the Military Science building.

USU has many sculptures and art pieces

around campus. Avard Fairbanks is the sculptor who created the busts of Washington

and Lincoln that are currently in front of

Old Main. Fairbank’s family contacted the

university to see if they would be interested in a donation of a model scale of Fairbank’s

“Doughboy of The West.” The answer was a resounding yes.

Katie Lee-Koven, executive director and chief

curator of the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, has helped facilitate the project. The

statue will fall under the museum’s care and they will help maintain it for years to come.

Lee-Koven has been planning, working with

committees and writing grants to make sure

that the memorial would be ready in time for the centennial celebration of Armistice day.

“This has been such a rewarding process. The

fact that it has all come together is amazing. It has been very humbling to see the response,” Lee-Koven said.

Outside the Military Science building, the

ongoing construction has been in preparation for the installation of the memorial.

Jim Huppi, a university landscape architect,

and his landscape team redid the irrigation

around the memorial and cleaned up the area.

Huppi was excited to help design and install the memorial to campus.

“Artwork always enhances our campus. This

particular sculpture is a working model of a

sculpture that you can find large numbers of in cemeteries around the nation. Our memorial is a modified concrete pyramid, with the sculpture and plaques around it,” Huppi said.

Along with the model-sized statue, bronze

plaques will be placed on the memorial. These bronze plaques were once displayed in Old

Main before the fire in the 1980s. They have

been in storage since that day, but now will be visible to the public once again.

Two of the bronze plaques have been dedicat-

ed by classes in memory of fallen soldiers from WWI and WWII. The third plaque is dedicated to the USS Maine that was destroyed in 1888. Ross Peterson, a retired university history

professor, is a expert on Utah State University’s

war involvement and history. Peterson has been involved in helping with the history behind

the memorial. According to Peterson the term “Doughboy” comes from the way soldiers looked in WWI.

“Doughboy was a nickname for infantry

guys in trenches. It was in part because of the helmets and gas masks. All their equipment

made them look a lot heavier than they were,” Peterson said.

He further explained the significance of Utah

State’s role in WWI. During this time it was the first time that Utahns were drafted into war.

“What happened at Utah State was the pres-

only involved in WWI for a year and a half,

Peterson explained that the University’s influence continued after the war too.

“For Utah State as a valley, it was a good

time of prosperity. Agriculture prices were

high and we were trying to feed a good share of the world,” Peterson said. “I think it was a prosperous time, but then there was the fact

NEWS

USU professors explain midterm election results ries in the state legislature to Proposition 2 –– the legalizing of medical marijuana –– being on the ballot.

“The marijuana proposition is a large part of it,” he said.

While The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints voiced

opposition to Proposition 2, all three professors on the panel said the support for Prop 2 represents changing attitudes

toward marijuana across the nation, as well as a more moderate, secular-leaning future for Utah.

Steve Sharp, a political science instructor specializing in for-

eign policy, said despite the church’s influence, some voters

who wanted marijuana reform felt like the legislature would never achieve it; though they may have disagreed with the logistics of Prop 2, they supported it nonetheless.

Sharp used an example from one of his classes in which he

polled the students.

“Someone suggested the reason he voted for it even though

he wasn’t in favor of it was that he didn’t trust the legislature,” Sharp said. PHOTO BY Jason Rimando The hosts (from left to right) are: Damon Cann, Michael Lyons and Steve Sharp. They discussed the results of the Midterm elections and President Trumps standing. The event was held on November 7, 2018. By Alison Berg NEWS SENIOR WRITER

Despite losing in several key gubernatorial and Senate races,

three Utah State University professors on a Wednesday night

panel say Democrats performed as well as they possibly could

have.

“When you look at some historical context, the Democratic

party actually fared pretty well in this election,” said Michael

“The Democrats seemed to be underperforming in a num-

ber of states that were projected to be very close, and they

appeared to be states that Trump had visited,” Lyons said. “This suggests to me that Trump’s campaign rallies in these states really helped the Republican party enormously.”

Damon Cann, an associate professor of political science, said

while Republican voters may wish their representatives would distance themselves from the president, that is unlikely to

the economy is as robust as it is and we are not at war and

fared about as well as you would expect.”

Lyons attributed the Democratic losses in states like Indiana

and Texas to President Donald Trump’s campaign rallies in

those states.

“The distance-yourself-from-Trump strategy wasn’t the win-

with Republicans in Alabama, he plays well with Republicans around the South, he plays well with Republicans in West Virginia and Republicans in Indiana.”

The professors also spoke about Trump’s unconventional

behaviors and whether voters can expect to see erratic tweeting and lashing out on television as the new norm.

“Trumpism is about a blustery. Say whatever’s on your

mind despite the fact that it’s often inappropriate. For some reason, that is remarkably popular with segments of the

Republican Party,” said Cann, who is a Republican himself.

“The Republicans trying to appeal to white, lower-middle-class

males but also white women who don’t have a college degree, I think that trend probably continues in the Republican Party.”

However, Cann added, “I think much of Trumpism is about a Trump, not necessarily about the issues,” and voters can expect t to see some of the rhetoric around immigration and racial s issues die down.

gaining quite a reputation. Since the first

“Watching Darwin run, it’s like every single

time he gets the ball I’m like ‘I can’t believe it.’

Same with every time Jordan throws a ball, it’s

phenomenal,” said USU senior safety Jontrell Rocquemore.

The 804 yards by Utah State marked just the

third time this season an FBS team surpassed

the 800-yard milestone. The Aggies are also the

only team in the nation with two or more 700+ yard performances.

“I’m always amazed,” Love said of this season’s

offensive performances. “It’s really just a fun

thing to be a part of. To be able to do stuff like

that every week, I mean, it’s really just fun. It’s a

testament to what we do every week (in practice).”

Following last night’s Boise State victory over

Fresno State, the Aggies now control their own

destiny to a potential conference championship

and an opportunity to host the MWC title game

on Dec. 1. USU went 6-0 at home this season,

outscoring opponents by a combined total of 357-128.

“It means so much to us,” Rocquemore said of

the team’s unblemished home record. “We take a

lot of pride playing at home. To go 6-0 is really a great completion of what we wanted to do.”

The Aggies are now 9-1 on the season, and a

Senior day supremacy for Aggies Utah State offense goes off for program-record 804 yards in 62-24 victory over San Jose State By Jaden Johnson SPORTS CONTENT MANAGER

14 days ago in a game against New Mexico, the

Utah State football team set a program record for most total yards in a game with 704. That record didn’t last long.

Saturday afternoon at Maverik Stadium, the

Aggies shattered that record, eclipsing it by 100 yards as they moved the ball for 804 total yards in a 62-24 victory over San Jose State.

After exchanging three-and-outs on each teams’

first possessions, it was the Spartans who made

their way onto the scoreboard first. A low snap caused a rushed punt by USU junior punter Taylor Hintze. The ball rolled a few yards across the

turf before SJSU freshman safety Tre Jenkins

scooped the loose ball and returned it 41 yards for a touchdown.

The Aggies quickly followed that up with a

score of their own on a seven-play, 68-yard drive

capped off by a 42-yard pass from sophomore quarterback Jordan Love to sophomore wide receiver Jordan Nathan.

USU fans remained on the edge of their seats

through much of the first quarter, as the Aggies exchanged blows with the Spartans in a 10-7 first quarter slugfest.

“There are standards that we’re going to hold

internally with the coaches and the players, and I don’t think we played up to our standards early in the game,” Utah State head coach Matt Wells said of the team’s slow start.

Then, the onslaught began.

The Aggies finished the first half on a 38-3 scor-

ing run, including a stretch of four straight pos-

sessions which ended in a USU touchdown

By halftime, Utah State had outgained SJSU

The Aggies went to the

performance, going off for 255 combined rush-

perfect 6-0 in conference play. Only five other

teams in program history have exceeded nine wins in a season.

While this has been a season full of record-set-

ting performances and this is perhaps one of the

most dominant Aggie teams in program history, Rocquemore said they are far from finished.

“Coming off of these games, the one thing I re-

ally think about is how much better we can be,

how much things we can fix, how much things

we need to work on,” he said. “We can get so much better.”

Total domination for women’s basketball in 106-35 victory

By Daedan Olander e SPORTS STAFF WRITER ’ s In their first regular season home game of the

lyear, the Utah State women’s basketball team successfully defended home-court against the

eNorthern New Mexico Eagles, winning the dgame 106-35 and improving to 2-0 on the

eyoung season. + The game was distinctly one-sided, as the contest began with a 10-2 Aggie run, and Utah

sState never let up, finishing the first half with a n34-point lead, 47-14.

e Northern New Mexico was unable to stop aUtah State’s offense at any point during the

-contest, the Aggies moving wherever they wanted to on the court which led to 22 first-

rhalf points in the paint and shooting better nthan 50% from the floor.

p On the other end, the Eagles’ offense was conesistently stymied by a suffocating USU defen-

,sive effort. In addition to nine first-half steals– fwhich led to 14 Aggie points– junior forward Marlene Aniambossou also forced two Eagle

foffensive fouls. a The non-competitive half allowed USU head

acoach Jerry Finkbeiner to spread around minutes and give ten different Aggie players time

aon the court; his faith in them was well-foundred as all ten scored during the game.

start to percolate up which I hope in the weeks to come and the months to come become a

foundation and an expected result,” Finkbeiner said of the offense.

Play in the second half was much the same as

the first. Utah State continued to dominate on both ends of the floor with their stout defense

leading to quick offense. An Aniambossou bucket late in the fourth pushed USU past the

100-point mark for the first time since the 2013-14 season, and the final score of 106 was

the most points scored in a game since a win in 1979-80 against Northern Arizona, 110-93.

“It feels great. It’s really encouraging and mo-

tivating like if we keep putting work in,” said

Utah State freshman guard Steph Gorman of

the high-scoring game. “We can do stuff like this again.”

Northern New Mexico’s point total of 35 was

also the fewest points allowed by an Aggie de-

fense since the 2015-16 season in a game against Nevada.

Even more historic still was the margin of vic-

tory of 71 points, the largest differential in Utah State women’s basketball history.

The Aggie defense was led by junior guard Ol-

ivia West who was a terror in the opponent’s backcourt, picking the opposing ball-handlers’ pocket multiple times and finishing with four steals on the game.
