The Kansas football teams nine-game
winning streak has caused an increase in
traffic at some local bars.
Dan Koehn, owner of Setem Up Jacks,
1800 E. 23rd St., said he had definitely seen
more people coming in after home games
than usual. He said people already came in to
watch away games on the bars 22-foot pro-
jector and 10 big screen TVs. Sometimes the
wait for a table can be up to an hour. Koehn
said the bar offers Big Blue Margaritas on
game days.
Brent Schultz, Baldwin City senior, said he
usually went to Setem Up Jacks on Mondays
to watch NFL games, and on Saturdays to
watch the football teams away games. He
said the bar was a lot more crowded when
the Kansas football team played.
Its really crowded, like a good tailgate
party but you have waiters and waitresses,
Schultz said.
Aubrey McCalman, manager at Henry
Ts Bar & Grill, 3520 W. 6th St., said she had
seen more customers come in for this years
football season because of the teams winning
streak. The wait for a table lasts between
20 and 30 minutes. The bar always has
people come in after games, but now there
are more people and they are more excited,
McCalman said.
We have more people singing karaoke,
she said.
Steve Gaudreau, owner of Quintons Bar
& Deli, 615 Massachusetts St., said he hadnt
seen much of a change at his business from
last year to this year. He said football home
game days had always been good days for
business.
If they can run the table and make it to
the conference game, I am expecting to see
an increase just because of the excitement in
the town, Gaudreau said.

Bars beneft from home game hype
Reliving the past became a reality last
week when 90s pop stars Britney Spears
and the Backstreet Boys released new
albums. Fans in Lawrence flocked to stores
to get their hands on the new releases.
Andrew Kuttler, El Dorado senior,
a Britney Spears fan, said Spears latest
release, Blackout, was some of the best
work she has put out in her career.
Students have the chance to
test their trivia knowledge at the
College Bowl at 9 a.m. Saturday in
the Kansas Union.
The College Bowl is a nation-
wide trivia tournament where teams
compete first at their own schools,
with the winning team advancing to
the regional competition and poten-
tially qualifying for the finals.
Chad Davis, Overland Park
junior, will compete in his third
College Bowl. His team, Sects Sects
Sects, has won the KU tournament
the past two years and has advanced
to regionals. Davis said people
shouldnt shy away from competing
because they could learn something
new and have a great time at the
event.
I would say that its a fun time
and although the idea of College
Bowl may seem nerdy or intimidat-
ing, I think everyone just has a fun
time with it, he said.
Lawrence City Commissioners and
the Oread Neighborhood Association
met to hear concerns of unkept housing
and excessive partying.
Association members said that the
main issue was trash and dilapidated
houses. They said the majority of the
residents were renters who werent con-
scientious of the condition of the neigh-
borhood and how it affected Lawrence.
Another concern was excessive par-
tying in the area. Beth Reiber, associa-
tion member, said a student was killed
in front of her house last year, and the
drunkenness wasnt only a disturbance,
but it scared her too. Members said they
wanted the University to help with law
enforcement.
The meeting also focused on permit
parking, trash policies and rental regis-
tration to improve the neighborhood.

What do you think?
by alex dufek
what do you think about the kansas-missouri game being
played at arrowhead instead of lawrence this year?
caleb blakesley
Ottawa junior
Youre missing an atmosphere
here at the University, but Im go-
ing to be playing in the game, so
I think it will be pretty exciting to
play at Arrowhead. There will be a
lot of people there, and its going
to be a vital game for the season.
lOgan miller
champaign, ill., freshman
I think it is good just because its
at a neutral site, but it takes away
a bit from the college atmosphere.
Playing at home gets the players
riled up a little bit more. When
you play at Arrowhead, you dont
have that home-feld advantage.
It seems like a little bit more of a
distraction.
chandler maxOn
Topeka freshman
I really wish that it could be in
Lawrence because it would be so
much easier to get people there,
and there would be more fans.
But at least it is close enough that
people can still go.
sTephanie rhOads
Wichita sophomore
Since weve been doing so well
this year, I think it would be better
for the fans to be here. I know that
it (picking up tickets with friends)
is not fun because there is always
that one straggler that didnt get
their tickets in time.

in brief
ies Resource Center has invited
former Cape Verde President An-
tonio Monteiro to speak from 3:30
p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Pine Room in
the Kansas Union.
Monteiro was the frst demo-
cratically elected president in
Cape Verde, a republic located on
a string of islands of the western
coast of Africa. He also allowed
a democratic transition in the
nations government when he left
ofce.
Craig Pearman, ofce manager
for the center, said the Boston
University African President Ar-
chives and Research Center made
the visit possible.
Having a real-life, in-the-fesh
former politician would give
us some insight as to what a
president of an African country
is thinking and maybe how the
democratic things proceed in an
African country with election pro-
cesses and a peaceful transition,
Pearman said.
The center focused its seminars
this semester on the question of
leadership in Africa.
After Monteiros speech, the
center will play host to Student
Night at the Spencer Museum of
Art from 6 to 8 p.m., which will
feature a performance by the
Kansas University African Drum-
ming and Dancing Ensemble.

discuss solutions for the student-

Davis said
because the
neighborhood, located direct-

families and college students,
it faced complex situations.

Members also addressed the
concern of excessive partying
within the neighborhood. Beth
Reiber, association member, said
the neighborhood was essentially
theLawrencenightlifeforstudents,
especially those who were under-
age and couldnt drink downtown.
Association members said they
would like to see additional law
enforcement and cooperation from
the University because of the close
proximity to campus, and because
the majority of residents were stu-
dents.
Commissioner Rob Chestnut
said he joined police officers on a
ridealongduringthepastweekend.
He said he realized that allocation
ofresourceswasveryimportant.
Thats the challenge, Chestnut
said. We have a time window
between1:30and3inthemorning
and we have establishments in the
community emptying out. It would
have to be a mass force because
its so prevalent at that time. Its a
resourceissue.

Inmate kills deputy driver,
escapes from transport van
POMPanO BeaCH, Fla. an
inmate handcufed inside a medi-
cal transportation van Wednesday
managed to steal a gun from the
76-year-old sherifs deputy at the
wheel, kill him with it and drive of,
authorities said.
Michael Mazza was recaptured
four hours later at a pawn shop, the
deputys gun still on him, Broward
County sherif al Lamberti said.
The 40-year-old suspect confessed
to the shooting, the sherif said.
Mazza, dressed in a suit and tie,
was on his way to the second day
of trial on charges of bank robbery
and eluding police. He had been
complaining of a back problem,
which is why he was in the medical
van, but its not clear if that was a
legitimate claim, sherifs spokes-
man elliott Cohen said.
deputy Paul Rein talked to his
wife on his cell phone just before
8 a.m., then set out on the routine
transfer from a county jail, Lam-
berti said.
Minutes after departing, Mazza
fought through a partition separat-
ing him from Rein, the sole ofcer
in the vehicle, the sherif said.
Rein died at a hospital shortly
after he was found bleeding in a
Pompano Beach parking lot just
after the attack. He was not wear-
ing a bulletproof vest and had
been shot once in the chest, the
sherif said.
He had other injuries, including
a broken fnger and bruises, suf-
fered in the altercation with Mazza,
Lamberti said.
Mazza was charged with frst-
degree murder and escape, and
was transferred to a maximum-
security jail in Miami-dade County
after a judge denied him bond.
We all just feel its probably
better he be housed at another
facility outside of Broward County,
Lamberti said.
Mazza was already serving one
life sentence for armed robbery.
authorities initially speculated
accomplices may have helped him
escape Wednesday, but Lamberti
said they had no evidence of that.
Trafc backed up for miles, and
schools were placed on lockdown
as authorities launched a manhunt.
The van was found 20 miles away
in a Fort Lauderdale restaurant
parking lot.
Rein is the fourth south Florida
law enforcement ofcer and the
third Broward deputy shot in the
last three months.
Associated Press
student senate committees met
Wednesday night to discuss legisla-
tion. all legislation must be passed
by full senate before it is enacted.
Full senate meets next Wednesday.
Here are some highlights of the
issues discussed by the various
committees:
MUlTIcUlTUral Travel
FUnDIng lIMITeD
The fnance committee voted to
limit the amount of travel funding
that the Multicultural education
Fund Board can provide for multi-
cultural groups and events.
One amendment to senate
rules and regulations would limit
the amount of funding the board
could provide for each event. The
board could provide up to $175
per person traveling to a domestic
event, up to a $5,000 maximum per
group. For international events, the
limit would be $350 per student,
up to a $10,000 maximum per
group.
The fnance committee also ap-
proved an amendment that would
limit the total amount of the Multi-
cultural education Fund that could
be used to fund travel. Only 75
percent of the fund could be used
to send groups outside campus.
Brian Hardouin, law senator,
said the fund could easily be spent
entirely on travel expenses for mul-
ticultural groups, but this would
not allow multicultural events and
groups on campus to be funded.
The Multicultural education
Fund comes from a $1.50 fee that
KU students pay each semester.
The Multicultural education Fund
Board, which consists of student
senate members and members of
the Multicultural Resource Center,
decide what groups and events
qualify as multicultural.

eXecUTIve STaFF
PrOHIBITeD FrOM
BeIng SenaTOrS
The student rights committee
passed legislation Wednesday
night that, if passed next week,
will prohibit student executive
members from serving as student
senators.
The student senate executive
staf includes the student body
president, vice president, trea-
surer, communications director,
executive secretary, transportation
coordinator and members of the
student Legislative awareness
Board.
Of those members, four cur-
rently serve as student senators in
addition to their executive posi-
tions. The executive staf members
are paid employees of student
senate. student senators dont
receive pay.
Jarrod Morgenstern, journalism
senator and Overland Park senior,
said that members of the executive
staf, if they were also serving as
student senators, had dual infu-
ence.
adam McGonigle, chairman
of the student executive com-
mittee and student senator, said
that when he took his position on
the executive staf in June he was
instructed that he would not be
on the clock as an executive staf
member when he was in his role as
student senator.
The student senate executive
positions are appointed after
student senate elections, so Mc-
Gonigle said that if this legislation
were passed through full senate,
people who were elected as stu-
dent senators and then appointed
to executive positions would have
to resign as senators.
eXecUTIve TUITIOn
SPOnSOrSHIPS TO cOMe
FrOM STUDenT FeeS
The student rights committee
passed legislation that requires
monetary compensation received
by student senators to come from
the student senate budget, mean-
ing that the money would come
from student fees, not from the
University administration.
The legislation, an amendment
to senate rules and regulations, is
aimed at the tuition sponsorships
received by the student body presi-
dent, vice president, treasurer and
legislative director. The sponsor-
ships currently come from the
discretionary budget of the Ofce
of student success.
ian staples, student rights com-
mittee member, said that it was
a potential confict of interest for
the KU administration to be fund-
ing the tuition of student senate
executives.

sated by the people you represent,

The cart sat in the hallway of
The Eldridge Hotel, filled with
clean towels, coffee, shampoo,
trash bags, a duster, cleaning solu-
tion and a mop.
Inside room 506, the maid went
through her cleaning ritual. She
folded a washcloth in an accordion
pattern and placed it neatly into a
newly changed towel. She washed
the tub and sink, cleaned the mir-
rors, mopped the floor, remade
the king-size bed and fluffed the
pillows.
No detail was overlooked as
she prepared the room for her
managers inspection.
The girls will do a better job
if they know someone is checking
their rooms, Nancy Longhurst,
Eldridge general manager, said.
She said she was proud of the
hotels perfect health record this
year.
All 780 of Kansas lodging estab-
lishments are now being forced to
clean up their acts because of a
new state policy that is in effect for
the first time this year. The policy
requires them to be inspected by
the state yearly rather than just
after complaints.
I think annual inspections
will be a great thing for the hotel
industry, Longhurst said. For
us, it would be great because we
already adhere to all the standards
they would inspect.
State lawmakers allocated
$246,616 and four inspectors to
lodging inspections. The inspec-
tors are based in Lawrence,
Wichita, Salina and Topeka, and
each is responsible for about 195
hotels per year.
In Lawrence, several inspec-
tions have already been con-
ducted. Among them was the
Marriott-owned Springhill Suites
and 1 Riverfront Plaza, which was
inspected on Sept. 5. Inspectors
found hairs on mattress pads, bits
of debris on floors, stains on carpet
and low water pressure, among
other problems.
Michael Moore, general manger
of the hotel, said the issues were
not as problematic as the report
made them seem. The trash was
probably a small piece of paper in
a corner that the vacuum missed,
he said, and the hairs werent plen-
tiful.
Its not like the mattresses
looked like a dog had been dragged
across them, Moore said.
Moore said he thought that the
inspections would make hotels
staff a little more aware of how
clean the rooms are, and would
push employees to look for smaller
items, such as trash in the corners
or a smudge on a light switch that
may not be on a normal cleaning
list. Hotels cant spend too much
more time on rooms, he said. They
have to find a balance between
spotless rooms and long hours for
maids.
I dont think any hotel will ever
be 100 percent clean, Moore said.
Hallmark Inn, 730 Iowa St., was
inspected on Jan. 11. The report
indicated that there was mold on
caulking, cigarette holes in sheets
and stains on chairs, box springs
and mattresses.
Since the report, the hotels
management has changed. Now
the hotel is working on renova-
tions, partly because of the inspec-
tions.
We are taking into consider-
ation inspections from different
agencies, Art Kato, hotel vice
president, said. The purpose of
our renovation is to improve over-
all appearance and quality of our
product.
Mary Glassburner, who admin-
isters the inspection program for
the Bureau of Consumer Health,
part of the Kansas Department
of Health and Environment, said
the inspection program was put in
place in May.
Glassburger said her depart-
ment has already found problems
in many hotels, including a state-
wide bed bug infestation, which
health officials are now trying to
control. Many of the inspections
this year were conducted solely for
this purpose.
We asked for funds so we could
inspect our lodging establish-
ments the way we feel they should
be inspected, Glassburner said.
They should be clean, safe and
comfortable.

Chad Davis and his five-member
team, Sects Sects Sects, will test their
trivia knowledge when they compete
in the College Bowl on Saturday at 9
a.m. in the Kansas Union.
The College Bowl is a nationwide
trivia tournament in which each
participating university holds a tour-
nament and the top team from each
university advances to regional com-
petition. If the team competes well
in regionals, it could then advance to
the nationwide final round.
Teams wanting to compete in
Saturdays event can register for $10
at the Student Union Activities Box
Office on the fourth level of the
Kansas Union until 5 p.m. Friday. At
the event, participants will receive
free shirts, pizza and other items. In
addition, members of the winning
team will receive medals and an
all-expense-paid trip to the regional
competition on Feb. 22-23 at Wichita
State University.
Rob Schabel, Kansas City, Mo.,
senior and SUA games coordinator,
said there was room for 16 teams
in the round-robin tournament and
each team must have four members,
though a fifth member could play as
an alternate.
Davis, Overland Park junior,
whose team won the College Bowl
at the University two years in a row.
The team competed in regionals last
year at the University of Missouri
and competed the previous year at
Kansas State. Davis said his team
didnt practice for the event. He said
the biggest advantage was having
experience from participating the
past two years. He also said the ques-
tions at the College Bowl could vary
in difficulty.
It can go from one question,
which is very simple to the next
question being about something that
Ive never even heard of, he said.
Davis said he wasnt expecting
his team to win the tournament this
weekend because each year the com-
petition had proven to be equally
tough.
Phillip Wrigley, Lawrence senior,
has competed on Davis team since
2005. He said that while the team
enjoyed winning and advancing to
regionals, the members werent over-
ly concerned with their performance
at regionals.
We usually end up about mid-
range in the end, because the other
schools send their inhuman answer
machines who defeat us pretty eas-
ily, Wrigley said.
Wrigley said that even if students
were not serious about winning the
tournament, they could still have fun
and maybe learn something as well.
It really is just a fun game, he
said. Go spend the day with your
friends being as nerdy as you can
be.

7-foot-8 man named tallest man in United States
aSSociaTeD PreSS
NORFOLK, Va. To all those
people who blurt out Wow, youre
tall! as they stare up at George Bell:
He knows.
And now, the world will know,
too.
The lanky, 7-foot-8 Norfolk
sheriff s deputy is being recog-
nized Thursday by Guinness World
Records as the Tallest Man in the
United States.
That makes him 2 inches taller
than the NBAs current tallest play-
er, Yao Ming, but too short to be the
worlds tallest living man. He stands
below, according to Guinness,
Ukraines 8-foot-5.5 Leonid Stadnyk
and Chinas Bao Xi Shun, who is 7-
foot-8.95.
To answer the inevitable ques-
tions:
Bell wears size-19 shoes, pants
with a 43-inch inseam and shirts
with 45-inch sleeves.
He did play basketball, in college
and with the Harlem Wizards and
Harlem Globetrotters show teams.
And as for how he feels about
being so tall?
I have no choice but to like it,
Bell, 50, said in an interview with
The Associated Press as he paced
the sidelines of a Pee Wee football
game at a city park, where he was
providing security.
Im used to a small mans world,
he added in a deep voice that suits
his stature. Ive been dealing with
a small mans world since I was a
kid.
Bell was to be revealed as
Americas tallest man on ABCs
Good Morning America on
Thursday, when 200,000 people
worldwide were expected to cele-
brate Guinness World Records Day
by attempting to set records of their
own.

WASHINGTON Televangelist
Pat Robertson, founder of the
Christian Coalition, endorsed
Republican presidential candidate
Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday.
It is my pleasure to announce
my support for Americas Mayor,
Rudy Giuliani, a proven leader who
is not afraid of what lies ahead and
who will cast a hopeful vision for all
Americans, Robertson said during
a news conference with Giuliani in
Washington.
The former New York mayor
backs abortion rights and gay rights,
positions that put him in conflict
with conservative GOP orthodoxy,
and has been trying to persuade
evangelical conservatives like
Robertson to overlook their differ-
ences on those issues.
Evangelicals have split in their
support for the leading Republican
candidates. Kansas Sen. Sam
Brownback, a favorite of Christian
conservatives who dropped out of
the race last month, endorsed fellow
Sen. John McCain of Arizona on
Wednesday. Former Massachusetts
Gov. Mitt Romney recently
announced that Paul Weyrich and
Bob Jones III were on board with
his candidacy.
Asked about the Robertson
endorsement, McCain, at a news
conference with Brownback in
Dubuque, Iowa, said: Every once in
a while, Im left speechless. This is
one of those times.
Giuliani is best known to vot-
ers for leading New York in the
aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist
attacks. Shortly after 9/11, Robertson
released a statement in which he
said the attacks occurred because
Americans had insulted God and
lost the protection of heaven by
allowing abortion and rampant
Internet pornography.
Robertson made no mention
of his differences with Giuliani on
social issues in Wednesdays state-
ment.
Rudy Giuliani took a city that
was in decline and considered
ungovernable and reduced its violent
crime, revitalized its core, dramati-
cally lowered its taxes, cut through
a welter of bureaucratic regulations,
and did so in the spirit of bipartisan-
ship which is so urgently needed in
Washington today, Robertson said.
Robertson, who unsuccessfully
ran for president in 1988, founded
the Christian Broadcasting Network,
the Christian Coalition and Regent
University in Virginia Beach.
Also Wednesday, Giuliani said he
asked two GOP friends in Congress,
Reps. Peter King of New York and
Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas, to intro-
duce bills to keep states from giving
licenses or similar identification to
illegal immigrants.
The Democratic front-runner,
Hillary Clinton, was criticized after
a televised debate last week when
she hedged an answer on whether
she supported New York Gov. Eliot
Spitzers effort to grant licenses to
illegal immigrants. Her aides said
she generally supported the idea
in the absence of comprehensive
immigration reform.

TUUSULA, Finland An 18-
year-old gunman opened fire at his
high school in this placid town in
southern Finland on Wednesday,
killing seven other students and the
principal before mortally wounding
himself in a rampage that stunned a
nation where gun crime is rare.
Police were analyzing YouTube
postings that appeared to anticipate
the massacre, including clips in
which a young man calls for revolu-
tion and apparently prepares for the
attack by test firing on a semiauto-
matic handgun.
Investigators said the gunman,
who was not identified, shot himself
in the head after the shooting spree
at Jokela High School in Tuusula,
some 30 miles north of the capi-
tal, Helsinki. He died later at Toolo
Hospital in Helsinki.
The teen killed five boys, two
girls and the female principal with
a .22-caliber pistol, police said, add-
ing that about a dozen more peo-
ple were injured while fleeing the
school. Officials said more than 400
students ages 12 through 18 were
enrolled.
Witnesses described a scene of
mayhem at the school in the leafy
lakeside community, saying the
shooter prowled the building look-
ing for victims while shouting slo-
gans for revolution.
Police Chief Matti Tohkanen said
the gunman didnt have a previous
criminal record. He was from an
ordinary family, Tohkanen said. He
said the teen belonged to a gun club
and had gotten a license for the pis-
tol Oct. 19.
Gun ownership is fairly com-
mon in Finland by European stan-
dards, but deadly shootings are rare.
Finnish media reported that a school
shooting in 1989 involved a 14-year-
old boy who killed two other stu-
dents apparently for teasing him.
Investigators were searching for
connections to the shooter and a
possible motive in YouTube postings
that appeared to reveal plans for
Wednesdays deadly attack.
One video, titled Jokela High
School Massacre, showed a picture
of what appeared to be the Jokela
school and two photos of a young
man holding a handgun. The person
who posted the video was identified
in the user profile as an 18-year-old
man from Finland. The posting was
later removed.
The profile contained a text call-
ing for a revolution against the sys-
tem.
Another video clip showed a
young man clad in a dark jacket
loading a clip into a handgun and
firing several shots at an apple placed
on the ground in a wooded area. He
smiled and waved to the camera at
the end of the clip.
A third clip showed photos of
what appeared to be same man pos-
ing with a gun and wearing a T-shirt
with the text Humanity is over-
rated.
Kim Kiuru, a teacher, said the
principal announced over the public
address system just before noon that
all students should remain in their
classrooms.
After that I saw the gunman run-
ning with what appeared to be a
small-caliber handgun in his hand
through the doors toward me, after
which I escaped to the corridor
downstairs and ran in the opposite
direction, Kiuru told reporters.
He said he saw a womans body as
he fled the building.
Then my pupils shouted at me
out of the windows to ask what they
should do and I told them to jump
out of the windows ... and all my
pupils were saved, Kiuru said.
Terhi Vayrynen, a 17-year-old
student, told The Associated Press
that her brother Henri, 13, and his
classmates had witnessed the assail-
ant shoot the principal outside the
school through their classroom win-
dows.
She said the gunman then entered
her brothers classroom shouting:
Revolution! Smash everything!
When no one did anything, the
attacker shot the television set and
windows but did not fire at the
youngsters, she said. Then he ran
out and down the corridor.
Vivianna Korhonen, a student at
the high school, told Finnish broad-
caster YLE she feared for her life as
news of the shooting spread through
the building.
We were terrified and afraid. We
thought that we might die as he was
still able to come to our classroom,
she said. We were informed all the
time. We were calling our friends
and asking for information.
Residents in Tuusula, a town of
34,000 people, said such attacks were
unheard of in the area.
Mostly nothing happens here,
this is nice surroundings and not any
criminals to talk of. This was a total
surprise, said Reijo Pekka, whose
son Arttu Siltala was at the school.
Students said the killer often wore
the same clothes to school brown
leather jacket, black trousers and
checkered shirt and usually car-
ried a briefcase.
Tuomas Hulkkonen, another stu-
dent, said he knew the gunman well,
and added that the teen had been
acting strange lately.
He withdrew into his shell. I
had noticed a change in him just
recently, and I thought that perhaps
he was a bit depressed, or something,
but I couldnt imagine that in real-
ity he would do anything like this,
Hulkkonen told Finnish TV broad-
caster MTV3.
Experts warned that the shooting
could inspire copycat attacks.
An event like this in Finland
might have an effect in the U.S.,
Christopher P. Lucas, a psychiatry
professor at New York University,
said.
He said YouTube provided a
ready way for shooters to publicize
their acts and provided some sort of
justification.
Finnish Prime Minister Matti
Vanhanen described the bloodshed
as extremely tragic and declared
Thursday a day of national mourn-
ing with flags to be flown half-staff.

Teacher accused of feeing
with boy faces charges
EL CENTRO, Calif. A judge
denied bail Wednesday for a 25-
year-old teacher accused of fee-
ing to Mexico with a 13-year-old
student, and the woman agreed
to be transferred from California
to Nebraska to face the charges.
Kelsey Petersons court-ap-
pointed attorney argued for
$100,000 bail, but a federal magis-
trate judge in El Centro ruled she
was a fight risk.
The boy immigrated illegally
to the U.S. when he was younger
and speaks little Spanish.
Peterson is charged with taking
a minor across state lines with the
intention of having sex with him.
The boy considered Peterson his
best friend, but not his girlfriend,
and had sex with her maybe
twice, he said in an interview at a
home in Janitzio, Mexico, where
he is staying with a family friend
temporarily.
Authorities in Lexington, Neb.,
said during the week the pair
was on the run that the teacher
and her former student had
exchanged romantic e-mail mes-

T
he skies are turning
dark. A storm is loom-
ing on the horizon.
Panic will engulf the streets of
America and we will be thrown
into a dark age. The Writers
Guild of America has offcially
gone on strike.
Why should we care? How is
that going to affect our lifestyles?
The WGA has gone on strike
and who knows why. It could
be money, actually. That is prob-
ably the main thing, but a lack
of communication between the
WGA and the Directors Guild
of America and the studios has
hindered any quick resolution
to this crisis. So how does this
affect us? Consider that most of
the shows we watch could quite
possibly be cut into shorter sea-
sons due a lack of writers, which
would ruin our appetite for our
television addictions. It could
be a long winter with no escape
from our usual entertainment
from life, our beloved television
shows.

While its not certain yet
whether some shows are going
to be cut short, the outlook is
bleak. Studios are preparing for
the worst and theyve begun to
take steps to end various shows
seasons with a conclusion, rath-
er than in the middle of an arc.
Theyd have to wait until next
fall to continue it.
Heroes has already flmed
an extra scene that could cut the
season short and Scrubs, in its
fnal season, is going to lose six
episodes to complete the series
with a 12-episode seventh
season.
Also, it is causing a dilem-
ma with producers and writ-
ers who participate actively
in their respective shows. For
example, three of the actors
on the popular sitcom The
Offce are writers on the
show as well. So while they
want to support the strike,
they cannot because they are
contracted to be actors as well,
which could cause unpleasant-
ness. Hopefully this wouldnt
ruin the performances. This writ-
ers strike is also going to affect
late night television. Jay Leno,
David Letterman, Jon Stewart
and Stephen Colbert could all
see their show affected by this
strike. While they are perform-
ers, they have to appreciate the
writers of their show so they will
certainly support them.
If this strike happens to last
longer, it may have deeper
wounds than ever. Quality in
television shows and movies
could go right through the foor.
The studios will start buying
more reality programs, which
90 percent of the time are com-
plete trash. They will start buy-
ing scripts from struggling Hol-
lywood writers, which could be
good for them and maybe fnd
a few gems in the mix, but big
budget movies will certainly suf-
fer. Paramount Pictures Studio
have already rushed the writers
of the Transformers movie to
write a sequel, and hopefully
that rush wont harm the flm as
it may harm other flms.
Let us hope that the strike
wont last very much longer, but
if it does, it may be a dark age in
the entertainment industry. At
least, Jayhawk sports are provid-
ing entertainment.

Nancy Pelosis visit highlights Dole Institutes oferings
The frst female Speaker of the House is one of a diverse group of speakers to visit the political center
T
wo words: Madam
Speaker.
It is still amazing to me that
there are scores of students at
this university that dont take
advantage of this building on
campus that entices this power-
ful woman. Yes, this wonderful
institute is none other than the
Robert J. Dole Institute of Poli-
tics.
A couple weeks ago, the Uni-
versity of Kansas fted Civic
Engagement Week. Sadly, it
seems students would rather at-
tend a National Pull Out Your
Teeth Day than register to vote
in Douglas County or attend
a function at the Institute. As
far as opinion columns go, it is
much easier to criticize some-
thing rather than to coddle it.
However, the Dole Institute
does very little that I could cri-
tique. Therefore I shall like to
coddle it.
The Dole Institute is run
fawlessly by experienced pro-
fessionals and students, such
as outreach director Barbara
Ballard and student outreach
director Beka Romm, respec-
tively. The constant network-
ing and connection-pulling
is what attracts the likes of
former President Bill Clinton,
Ann Coulter, former Senator
Tom Daschle and the buildings
namesake, former Senator Bob
Dole. Maybe thats why the cen-
ter is so magnifcent.
Students work alongside great
politicos, members of the media
and members of academia. Not
to mention that the Institute was
one of the frst of its kind dedi-
cated in 2001. Few facilities of
the same grandeur exist nation-
wide (once again, KUs innova-
tion shines through). Although
the Dole Institutes purpose is to
serve and educate the students,
the center cant educate what
doesnt show up.
Digging deeper, current vot-
ing statistics have illustrated the
fact that young people, particu-
larly students in the 18-25 range,
are the most inconsistent in
terms of strong voting patterns.
In other words, high school and
college students are frequently
more politically apathetic than,
say, a 65-year-old married fe-
male Caucasian Evangelical
Christian from Ohio.
This trend seems contradicto-
ry considering all the work that
goes into engaging the youth
and ensuring college students
have all the opportunities in the
world to learn more about the
government, the press and poli-
tics.
Yet, for some reason, the stu-
dents at KU and across the coun-
try continue to perceive politics
as divisive, largely unimportant
or intrinsically evil. I do surmise
that some KU students conceive
of politics as uncool or for much
older, educated people.
The Dole Institute combats
that negative imagery well by
inviting men and women who
exemplify the idea of politics
and government being honor-
able and extremely worthwhile.
Furthermore, the center offers
diehard lovers of politics mul-
tiple favors from the political
spectrum.
At any given time during an
academic year, students can ex-
pect to see and hear a message
from the Dole Institute that
appears very attractive to mi-
norities, women, liberals, con-
servatives, the young and the
well-aged. Bias and monotony
are defnitely antonymous to the
Robert J. Dole Institute.
Notwithstanding the fact
that the Institute offers educa-
tion, but theres interaction too.
Just last spring semester, I was
able to shake hands with the
man to whom President Bush
gave the thumbs-up immedi-
ately proceeding the disaster of
Hurricane Katrina. His name
is Michael Brown. Imagine be-
ing able to throw questions at
a very controversial fgure, but
what place offers that chance?
Look no further than the Dole
Institute. I just cant help but
reiterate how many fantastic op-
portunities there are at the Dole
Center.
As for me, I know what Ill
be doing the morning of Fri-
day, Nov. 9, and thats listening
bright eyed and bushy tailed to
the frst female Speaker of the
House.
Williams is a Coffeyville ju-
nior in English and pre-law.
T
he University of Kansas
deserves more than a
catchy slogan show
tune or, Which Joe College
shirt do I like best?
KU fans want to establish
a tradition that will make stu-
dents and alumni proud; they
expect and demand more than a
put-down slapped on the front
of what should be a prestigious
game day shirt. Consider the list
of other fan bases from around
the nation. These groups and
the slogans that embody them
represent more than simply the
phrase on the shirt; it is the glue
that bonds the students together.
We would be doing a disservice
to our school if we allowed a
Joe College-esque shirt that cuts
and pastes the Kansas Jayhawk
among universally used T-shirt
phrases.
Our school deserves a design
that speaks volumes about the
tradition of our proud school
and donned in a manner as
unique as the banner that hangs
from the Fieldhouse. I challenge
all of you to look at the magni-
tude by which other game day
T-shirt organizations around
the nation support their schools
and their athletes. The best ex-
ample comes directly from Bill
Selfs past at Illinois. There the
students willingly raise money
for the community to earn the
right to wear a shirt.
This school has the fan base
and program to surpass all of
these schools. My proposal is
so that this game day shirt will
grow to be as signifcant as these
schools: The Phog, and on
the back of the shirt, Beware.
Simple but uniquely Kansas. A
concept of a Blue Phog that will
cover and unite our campus. It
recognizes Phog Allen, who did
much more for Kansas Athlet-
ics than just coach basketball.
Whatever the design, we need a
concept that can be recognized
and feared nationally. It is in this
one area alone that our school
trails many others and we need
more than Joe College to take
the lead. As the name implies,
The Phog would consume
opponents and spread to rival
some of college sports greatest
traditions.

T
his week, junior cornerback
Aqib Talib was named one of 12
semifinalists for the Jim Thorpe
Award. On Nov. 19, the field of semifi-
nalists will be narrowed down to three
finalists. Talib is also considered a top
NFL cornerback prospect if he were to
enter the draft early after the season.
With this in mind, it is time for
Talib to step and perform against a top
receiver. While Talib has had several
exciting plays this season, he has let a
couple top receivers score big against
Kansas.
The first receiver Talib let by him
was Kansas State senior Jordy Nelson.
In the Sunflower Showdown in
Manhattan earlier this season, Nelson
came up big with a 68-yard touchdown
reception.
Last weekend, Nebraska senior
Maurice Purify had a career game
against Kansas with 148 yards, 7 recep-
tions and three touchdowns. Two of
those touchdowns came against Talib.
Not to pick on Talib here, but he is sup-
posed to be the best cornerback in col-
lege football this season.
This Saturdays match up against
Oklahoma State may be the most hyped
game in Kansas football history. The
game will air during prime time at 7
p.m. on ABC, and the entire country
will be watching the Jayhawks run for
the National Championship.
Thats right, folks, Kansas is
in the running for the National
Championship. With the No. 4 ranking
in the BCS, the stage is set for Kansas,
and now everyone is watching. Putting
things into perspective, the question
must be asked: Is Aqib Talib ready for
prime time?
Many people around the country,
especially Kansas fans, have been won-
dering when the wheels would come
off this season and the Jayhawks would
lose. With the OSU offense ranked No.
8 in the NCAA and No. 3 in the Big 12,
Oklahoma State will be Kansas biggest
offensive test of the season. Last year
Kansas came up short with a 43-32 loss
to Oklahoma State. Their biggest threat
this year will be senior wide receiver
Adarius Bowman.
Last season, Bowman had a career
game with a Big 12 record of 300 yards
receiving, 13 receptions and 4 touch-
downs. In the postgame press confer-
ence, coach Mark Mangino said, he
gets my vote for the Heisman.
Through nine games this season,
Bowman has 912 yards receiving, 57
receptions and 7 touchdowns. At this
weeks press conference, Mangino
inferred Kansas would try and put
Bowmans performance behind them,
but recognized he is not a player to be
taken lightly.
Adarius had a great day on us last
year, but that was last year, Mangino
said. We have great respect for him. He
is one of the most talented receivers in
the league. Hes big and strong, but hes
also fast. He has great athleticism and
great change of direction. He is very,
very talented.
Saturday will be the biggest game of
Talibs career thus far. Shutting down
Bowman this weekend will be key if
Talib is to be a serious contender for
the Jim Thorpe Award. His perfor-
mance could also be an indicator of
whether his NFL draft stock will rise
or fall. With the whole nation watch-
ing Saturday night, I ask once again: Is
Aqib Talib ready for prime time?

If theres anything Oklahoma State senior
wide receiver Adarius Bowman cant do on a
football field, it hasnt been discovered yet.
At 6-foot-4, 220-pound Bowman can use
his size to catch passes in the middle of the
field, his speed to blow by defenders on the
edges or his athleticism to evade potential
tacklers. Bowman, who caught four touch-
down passes and had 300 receiving yards
against Kansas last year, is as close to unstop-
pable as it gets.
Adarius has been a good football player
for us the last couple of years, whether hes
catching the ball or doesnt have the ball
in his hands, Oklahoma State coach Mike
Gundy said. Hes a really good blocker for
us; he averages about six knockdowns per
game.
Theres no typo there. When asked about
his star receiver, Gundy rattled off blocking
statistics, showing how versatile Bowman
really is.
Bowman was even versatile enough to
walk on to the Oklahoma State basketball
team after the football season last year. And
BY ASHER FUSCO

Its been more than a year since Kansas
and Oklahoma State last squared off, but the
42-32 defeat is plenty memorable for Kansas
fans for all the wrong reasons.
Fresh off of two closely contested losses,
Kansas looked to be turning its season in the
right direction in the first half of the game
on Oct. 13, 2006. Kerry Meier connected
with tight end Derek Fine and wide receiver
Marcus Herford for two early touchdowns,
and the Jayhawk defense forced three first-
half turnovers and allowed no points head-
ing into halftime. When the teams took the
field for the third quarter, things got ugly
for Kansas.
What happened last year is a mystery for
us as coaches, Kansas defensive coordinator,
Bill Young, said. The plays that we stopped
in the first half they ran the exact same plays
in the second half and got touchdowns out of
them. They made a great catch, a great run,
we misplayed the ball, we werent in the right
spot things that you cant explain.
The Cowboys inexplicable second-half
success looked even more unbelievable in the
box score. After a mistake-prone first half,
Oklahoma State gained 397 total yards in the
second half, relying on 6-foot-4, 220-pound
wide receiver Adarius Bowman and quick
quarterback Bobby Reid to do most of the
damage.
Bowman made a mockery of the Kansas
secondary, gaining 300 receiving yards on
13 catches and Reid complemented his 411
passing yards with 46 rushing yards and a
touchdown scamper that cut the Kansas lead
to 17-14 in the third quarter. By that point,
the floodgates had been opened and the
Cowboy offense was pouring out. Oklahoma
State added three touchdowns in the fourth
quarter and held onto a 10-point lead as time
expired.
But the aerial antics of Bowman and
Reid were not the sole contributors to the
Jayhawks defensive breakdown. Young said
that the team did not put enough pres-
sure on the quarterback in the second half,
which opened up Oklahoma States offensive
options.
Sophomore safety Derek Stuckey said that
the Kansas players have watched the tape of
last years debacle, and have taken care to cor-
rect some of the mistakes they made against
Oklahoma State.
Its frustrating to see how close we were to
being better or making some greater plays,
Stuckey said. Its not painful because you can
see where the mistakes were made and you
can see how easy it is to fix.

The lack of having good returns at this

Mangino said. Weve got to do a better

Anderson compiles starting lineup
Its less than a week before Mis-
souri begins its regular season, and
coach Mike Anderson is still trying to
fgure out his starting lineup.
The Tigers open regular-season
play Monday at home against Cen-
tral Michigan. Their last exhibition
tuneup is Thursday night at home
against Missouri Western.
Were going to have fve, six or
seven starters, Ive always said that,
Missouris second-year coach, com-
ing of an 18-12 debut season, said.
But well put some combinations
out there, and well see how they
respond.
The Tigers seem set at guard with
Stephon Hannah, last seasons Big 12
newcomer of the year, and sopho-
more Keon Lawrence. The forward
position is more muddled.
Marshall Brown and Matt
Lawrence started 29 and 30 games,
respectively, last season, and Leo
Lyons has improved steadily since
Andersons arrival. Missouri also
has DaMarre Carroll, who sat out all
of last year after transferring from
Vanderbilt.
I think each guy brings diferent
things to the table,Anderson said.
The thing Im looking for is the guy
that will go out there, play defense,
play hard, leave it on the foor and
play aggressive.
Carroll said he and Lyons pro-
vided a rebounding presence, an
area of emphasis for Anderson after
Missouri fnished 10th in the Big 12
in 2006-07.

Living more than 1,600 miles
and two time zones away in western
Canada, its hard for former University
of Kansas running back Jon Cornish
to watch his college teams games on
TV. But that doesnt mean hes not
following them.
I get live updates on my cell
phone, Cornish said. Im always
paying attention and rooting for
them.
Cornish, who set the schools sin-
gle-season rushing record with 1,457
yards during his senior year in 2006,
stays in contact with former team-
mates such as running back Brandon
McAnderson. The Jayhawks 9-0 start
this season hasnt shocked him at all.
I knew what was about to happen;
it was just a surprise to everyone else,
Cornish said. I knew about Reesing
and what he could do because he was
doing it all of last year on the scout
team until he started playing, and I
knew that Brandon McAnderson was
a fantastic running back. If you have a
strong passing offense, it opens up the
running game, and thats what weve
been doing.
As Cornish talked about Kansas
football, the word we continued to
pop up in his answers. When asked
why he used the word despite not
being on the team, Cornish explained
his love for the school and for
Lawrence.
I am a Kansas alumnus, Cornish
said. If you graduate from Kansas,
youre always going to be a Jayhawk. I
will follow them as long as I live, and
I hope to make it back to Lawrence
at some point and maybe work there.
Kansas will always be a part of me.
When NFL teams overlooked him
in this years draft, Cornish signed
a two-year deal with the Calgary
Stampeders of the Canadian Football
League. Cornish leads the team in spe-
cial teams tackles as the Stampeders
near their first-round playoff match-
up on Sunday against Saskatchewan.
Kansas success this season may not
astonish him, but being second on
Calgarys depth chart certainly does.
For whatever reason, I am the
second-string running back, Cornish
said. Everybody has been expecting
me to see the field a lot up here, and I
havent, which has been just as much
of a surprise to me.
The CFL has a few significantly
different rules from those in college
and professional football in America,
most noticeably the five-yard halo that
punt returners receive when catching
the ball, and the three downs, instead
of four, that the offense has to get a
first down.
Theres enough changes that it
makes the game a little bit more
exciting, Cornish said. The game
is really opened up a lot more, and I
think its more fun for the people that
get to play it. The three downs really
makes special teams a huge part of
the game.
Cornish plans to play out his con-
tract before trying to earn a spot on a
NFL roster in 2009. But for now, hes
rooting for his former teammates and
friends.
I think we will win on Saturday
because Oklahoma State puts up a
lot of offensive numbers, but their
defense is weak, Cornish said. Same
with Missouri in a few weeks. They
will be a hard team to beat, but with
our offense playing as well as it is, I
think we can win a shoot-out with
them. I just think we are going to play
well enough to end up playing in a
BCS bowl. I will be rooting for them
the entire way.

Cornish relishes college career, follows Kansas title chase
BY MARK DENT

Darrell Arthur walked off the
Allen Fieldhouse floor after a loss
to Oral Roberts last November
with a bad feeling in his stomach.
Kansas, the No. 3 team in the coun-
try, had just lost to a team from the
Mid-Continent Conference.
Too bad his pain would only get
worse as soon as he heard Kansas
coach Bill Self s message in the
locker room.
He told us practice was going
to be real tough after that, Arthur,
sophomore forward, said. He didnt
let up until the Florida game so we
had some intense practices.
The players shouldnt need the
extra intensity this year. Self said
this team is hungrier than it was
last year, as it gets ready to take on
lower level teams such as Louisiana-
M o n r o e ,
Wa s h b u r n
University and
UMKC in the
early part of its
schedule.
Last sea-
son, the hunger
wasnt there.
Oral Roberts
wasnt the only
team that gave
Kansas prob-
lems. Ball State hung around for
most of the game in late November
before the Jayhawks pulled away
at the end. DePaul upset Kansas
after trailing by double digits in the
second half.
I didnt think last years team
played as hungry early in the sea-
son in large part because that team
was young, Self said. I dont think
it was the NCAA loss. Maybe it
should have been more motivation,
but lets be honest, it is motivation.
But after a point in time, you have
to motivate yourself.
The players didnt always do that
last year. Games against Florida
and Boston College brought out the
best in the Jayhawks, but match-ups
against Detroit and Winston Salem
State didnt. Senior guard Rodrick
Stewart said the team sleepwalked
through several games.
Last year, I think when we saw
teams like Oral Roberts and DePaul
we were like, Man, who do we play
next? Stewart said. Im not saying
it was because we werent seniors,
but we really didnt have the sense
to know this is just like any other
team you play.
Self said the maturity of this
years team resulted in more moti-
vation. The five seniors all said they
wanted to leave
Kansas doing
s o me t h i n g
special. They
dont want to
mess around
like last years
team did.
The seniors
arent the only
mature ones,
either. Junior
guards Mario
Chalmers and
Brandon Rush now have two years
of experience. Arthur and sopho-
more guard Sherron Collins know
what its like to play college basket-
ball at a high level for a full season.
They also know how sweet it
tastes to be on the brink of a Final
Four and want to return. Self said
the tournament run encouraged
maturity could both be reasons why
the team is hungrier.
You have to be a self-starter,
he said. I didnt think last year
our team as a group was that. I
think this year, were better in that
area. Maybe its UCLA, maybe its
five seniors in a last go-around,
maybe its just were maturing as a
group. Who knows what it is, but
its probably a combination of all
those things.
Self doesnt want to dwell on the
Oral Roberts loss for the next few
weeks. He said he might mention
Marchello Vealy, the guard who
made seven three-pointers in the
upset last year, but he said thats all
hell bring up.
He doesnt need to remind them.
The players learned their lesson.
In basketball, you can be beat
on any night, Stewart said. Just
because youre the most talented
team doesnt mean youll win. Thats
the approach we have to take this
year. We have to play every game
like its your Texas and UCLAs, and
if we do that, I feel like we wont
lose a game.

sports 4B thursday, november 8, 2007
The Kansas pass defense has plen-
ty of experience patching up errors
on the fly. Last week, the Jayhawks
allowed 266 first-half passing yards
to Nebraska before buckling down
and intercepting four passes in the
second half. Kansas coaches said
halftime adjustments implemented
by the coaching staff and put into
action by the players spurred the
quick turnaround. The success of
the 2007 Kansas defense has made at
least one Jayhawks memory of 2006
a bit foggier.
Were not measuring ourselves
by last year, coach Mark Mangino
said. Thats history and weve
learned from that. We got over that
in January and weve been looking at
2007 the whole time.
Edited by Meghan Murphy
now, just six months later, hes back
on the gridiron and making more
heads turn. Texas coach Mack Brown
took notice last week, when Bowman
gained 108 yards and caught one
touchdown pass against his team.
Bowman was blocking our line-
backers. Hes tough, hes fast, I bet
hes 230 pounds. Hes just an amazing
player, Brown said. He has to be as
good as any receiver in the country.
Bowman currently ranks tenth in
the nation for receiving, with 101
yards per game. His total against the
Jayhawks last year was nearly triple
his current average.
Kansas players know better than
anyone that Bowman is like an active
volcano: Theres constant activity or
movement, but at any second he can
explode. So, its no surprise that the
Jayhawks are specifically planning
for him.
The main thing is to try to keep
him from getting the ball, Kansas
junior linebacker James Holt said.
We know that hes going to make
plays but it comes down to how we
are going to bounce back after he
makes a play.
Kansas failed to bounce back
when Bowman struck last season.
He scored all four of his touchdowns
in the second half of the game at
Memorial Stadium. Kansas defen-
sive coordinator Bill Young said the
Cowboys kept running the same
plays because the Jayhawks couldnt
stop them.
Sophomore safety Darrell Stuckey
said the Kansas secondary wouldnt
make the same mistakes as last year
and that they were ready for the
Adarius Bowman challenge.
A lot of it was our lack of assign-
ments and getting to where we need-
ed to be, Stuckey said. It was a lack
of our knowledge of the game as a
whole. Its a knowledge we have now.
We have a whole new demeanor now.
We are a different team. We can look
back at that and learn from it.

O
ne of the wildest college
football seasons is still a
long way from the end.
Kansas is having its best season
in a century.
Who cares about basketball,
right?
Well, good news. This college
basketball season should be just
as exciting as the current race for
the BCS title game. Joakim Noah,
Al Horford, Taurean Green and
Corey Brewer are gone, and not
a second too soon for every non-
Florida college basketball fan.
With Floridas reign at the
top finished, youth could be the
key this year. Memphis Derrick
Rose, UCLAs Kevin Love, Dukes
Kyle Singler and Indianas Eric
Gordon are all freshmen who
could lead their team to the top.
Kansas States Michael Beasley
and Kentuckys Patrick Patterson
will be excellent, too.
The national title should be
up for grabs just like in football.
North Carolina, UCLA and
Memphis are early favorites but
so were USC, Florida and LSU in
football.
Anything could happen.
The Top 10 Teams
(and a 10-word
descripTion for
each)
1. Memphis Freshman
Derrick Rose makes this Elite
Eight team the favorite.
2. Kansas Three little
guards will keep Kansas good
until Rush returns.
3. UCLA Jordan Farmars
early departure didnt matter;
neither will Arron Afflalos.
4. Louisville Why did
Kansas students have to constant-
ly criticize David Padgett?
5. North Carolina Last
team not named Florida to win a
national title.
6. Duke Sorry all Blue Devil
haters. Last year was a fluke.
7. Georgetown Hoyas
would be No. 1 if Jeff Green was
back.
8. Indiana Id hate to see
coach Kelvin Sampsons cell
phone bill.
9. Arizona The Wildcats
will return to prominence after
two bad years.
10. Marquette Eagles have
three guards better than Kansas
three little guards.

Suspension
to keep
Pacman out
of playofs
By tereSa m. WaLker
aSSociated preSS
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) NFL
commissioner Roger Goodell told
Titans cornerback Adam Pacman
Jones in April to sit out the 2007
season. On Tuesday, the commis-
sioner informed Jones he still hasnt
changed his mind.
Jones had met with the com-
missioner last week in New York,
pleading for some leniency and an
early return. But the cornerback,
whose biggest community service
was buying wrestling tickets for
Atlanta students to watch him at
a pay-per-view event last month,
didnt convince Goodell.
The commissioner told Jones
his suspension will last through
this season, which would include
the playoffs, if the Titans (6-2)
qualify.
Attorney Worrick Robinson
said Jones received a letter from
the NFL notifying him of the
commissioners decision earlier
Tuesday. They planned to talk fur-
ther Tuesday night and a formal
statement may follow Wednesday.
Goodell had promised Jones
case would be reviewed after
Tennessees 10th game of the sea-
son. He met with Jones last Friday
two days before the Titans
eighth game. But the Titans, who
have replaced their best defensive
player, had been expecting the sus-
pension to stand.
The suspension followed a Las
Vegas strip club fight Feb. 19 in
which police accused Jones of
inciting a fight inside that led to a
triple shooting outside that left one
man paralyzed.
Jones was arrested on two felony
counts of coercion in June after
dropping an appeal of his NFL
punishment. Jones said in inter-
views since his suspension that he
felt he was being treated unfair-
ly and that the punishment was
harsh.
To keep himself busy, he signed a
contract with Total Nonstop Action
Wrestling. But the Titans got an
injunction that limited his physi-
cal contact to prevent any injuries.
Jones contract ended recently with
TNA, and the Nashville-based
company did not renew the deal.
nFL
Cowboys enjoy success,
named 1-point favorite
Betting lines are a perception, and
the perception of the Dallas Cow-
boys is very good these days. Thats
obvious from the fact that they are
1-point favorites at the Meadow-
lands on Sunday against the Giants,
who have won six in a row and are a
game behind them in the NFC East.
Its probably justifed against a team
whose last fve victories have been
over opponents with a current com-
bined of 13-36 record. On the other
hand, past New York teams have
often failed to win games against
teams theyre supposed to beat. This
will probably have little resemblance
to the frst meeting on the frst Sun-
day night of the season. Dallas won
that game 45-35, then the Giants
went on to allow 35 points in a loss
to Green Bay the next week. In the
six wins since, theyve allowed 79
points, or one point less than in the
frst two.

Kansas might have nightmares
about this Texas volleyball team.
No. 3 Texas, winners of 14 straight
matches, swept Kansas 3-0 (30-20,
30-19, 30-18) Wednesday night at the
Horejsi Family Athletics Center. The
Longhorns outplayed the Jayhawks
in every facet of the match, and put
on a performance worthy of its No.
3 ranking. Sophomore All-American
Destinee Hooker led a sizzling Texas
offense with 13 kills, and Texas domi-
nated the net, outblocking Kansas 26
to four.
Theyre as physical as any group
you are going to see, senior setter
Emily Brown, who finished with 11
kills and 17 assists, said.
Brown has been at Kansas for four
seasons, and she could only find one
word appropriate for Wednesdays
match.
Dominance is a good word,
Brown said.
Texas finished with a .408 hitting
percentage, compared with a .091
percentage for Kansas. Bechard said
his team just wasnt able to sustain
anything against the bigger, stronger
Longhorns.
Against a team like this who
might be playing as well as anybody
in the country, you just cant take a
three or four point break, Bechard
said. Because theyre too talented,
theyre too experienced, theyre play-
ing at an extremely high level right
now. When you can hit over .400,
and we were playing decent defense
too, you know that its a team that is
offensively on fire.
Kansas fell to 11-15 and 4-12 in
the Big 12, while Texas improved to
19-3 and 14-1 in the Big 12. The loss
was also Kansas eighth straight loss
against Texas. The Longhorns never
looked out of their comfort zone,
cruising to easy victories in all three
games. Meanwhile, Kansas looked
more and more rattled after every
Texas block.
Nothing gets in your head more
than getting stuffed, Brown said.
Despite the loss, freshman out-
side hitters Karina Garlington and
Jenna Kaiser both registered seven
kills each.
But the story of the match was
Texas. The Longhorns have slowly
crept into the national title picture,
and they made sure to keep Kansas at
a secure distance the entire match.
We were just so tentative, and I
know were young, but we have to get
past that, Bechard said. Were 16
matches in to the Big 12 Conference
now.
Kansas was coming off its best vic-
tory of the season, a 3-2 win against
No. 18 Oklahoma, but Bechard said
there was no way his team had a
letdown. We just knew we were up
against a very hot opponent and we
didnt do the things we needed to do
to get the results, Bechard said.

Containing Faucette
When Kansas lost 3-0 to texas on
oct. 13, texas freshman outside
hitter dominated Kansas with
22 kills. this time, Kansas held
Faucette to eight kills. Coach
bechard said his team went in
with a plan to stop Faucette. We
keyed on serving her, and we
thought that might afect other
parts of her game, and we did a
pretty good job on her, bechard
said.

Big 12 hopes end after

The Kansas soccer team was
in San Antonio, Texas, for the

shut out by Oklahoma State,
3-0. The Cowgirls scored their
three goals within the frst
twenty minutes of play, and
each of the goals were only
minutes apart. Kansas fnal

Bibles to be allowed
into Olympic village
DENVER The U.S. Olympic
Committee received confrma-
tion from Olympic ofcials
Wednesday that there will be
no restrictions on Bibles being
brought into the Olympic vil-
lage in Beijing next year.
The USOC contacted the In-
ternational Olympic Committee
about the issue in response to
a story posted on the Catholic
News Agency Web site citing a
list of prohibited items that was
reported to include Bibles.
With the Olympics head-
ing to the largest Communist
country in the world, many
observers are interested to
see how China handles issues
like freedom of the press and
freedom of religion over the 16
days next August.
IOC rule 51 states no kind
of demonstration or political,
religious or racial propaganda is
permitted in any Olympic sites,
venues or other areas.

ORLANDO, Fla. The Los
Angeles Angels are baseballs excep-
tion: They openly admit theyd love
to sign Alex Rodriguez.
The Angels had a meet-and-greet
with A-Rods agent, Scott Boras, at
the general managers meetings.
The New York Mets also spoke with
Boras but wont say whether theyre
in or out of the competition.
Tony Reagins, who just took over
as the Angels GM, had glowing
words for A-Rod.
He probably makes any team
that hes a part of better, he said
Wednesday.
Reagins said if talks progressed,
the Angels would welcome a chance
to speak with Rodriguez.
While the Mets have the cash to
sign Rodriguez, they havent com-
mitted to making an offer. Likely
to win his third AL MVP award,
Rodriguez is expected to sign a deal
topping the record $252 million, 10-
year contract the Texas Rangers gave
him before the 2001 season. Before
A-Rod opted out of that agreement,
Boras told the New York Yankees
they had to offer $350 million just
to get a meeting with the third base-
man.
Other possible destinations are
thought to include the Boston Red
Sox, Chicago Cubs and Detroit
Tigers. All those teams say that
theyre not interested at this point.
Other big names in the news on
the next-to-last day of the four-day
gathering included Miguel Cabrera,
Roger Clemens, Tom Glavine and
Kenny Rogers.
The final day of the annual meet-
ings, GMs were to discuss whether
first- and third-base coaches should
wear helmets. Mike Coolbaugh, a
first-base coach for the Colorado
Rockies minor league team in Tulsa,
was killed in July when he was struck
on the head by a line drive during a
game.
On Tuesday, each general man-
ager stood up during their meeting
and stated what their offseason goals
were. Many mentioned specific play-
ers they were making available. The
idea was suggested by Bostons Theo
Epstein and Floridas Larry Beinfest,
co-chairs of this years meeting.
Usually it takes a while to be
able to reach all 29 other teams and
hear what theyre trying to do. This
increased our efficiency tremen-
dously. It saves us all a lot of time,
Epstein said. Some teams were spe-
cific. Some were more guarded.
Cabrera is the first big name being
dangled. Hell make more than $10
million next season, too expensive
for the Marlins to retain. Having
lost A-Rod, the Yankees need a third
baseman but team executive Hank
Steinbrenner was clear on what New
York wont do.
Its pretty obvious which players
were not going to trade, he said,
before rattling off the teams most-
prized young pitchers. Chamberlain,
Hughes and even Kennedy. Not for a
position player.
For now, when other teams
inquire, Joba Chamberlain, Phil
Hughes and Ian Kennedy arent
available.
Hughes, just 21, showed poise
and overpowering pitches, even
while slowed by hamstring and
ankle injuries that sidelined him for
much of the season. Chamberlain,
22, was instant electricity and on
many nights unhittable as Mariano
Riveras setup man down the stretch.
Kennedy, who turns 23 next month,
was polished and resembled a young
Mike Mussina in three September
starts.
I know that all three of those
guys, the 29 other clubs would have
no problems pitching at least one
of them if not all of them in their
rotations, general manager Brian
Cashman said.
Atlanta said it would like to bring
back Tom Glavine after a five-year
absence.
Glavine, a left-hander who turns
42 in March, spent his first 16 major
league seasons with Atlanta, then
pitched for the New York Mets for
five years. He lives in suburban
Atlanta and was hoping to get an
offer from the Braves after the 2006
season. Atlanta never made an offer,
and he agreed Dec. 1 to re-sign with
the Mets.
Rogers, a left-hander who turns
43 on Saturday, wants to return to
Detroit for a third season.
Kenny will pitch in 2008, and we
are currently in negotiations with
the Tigers, Boras said.
Clemens, who is 45, is ready to
join the Houston Astros as a
consultant. In a sign Clemens pitch-
ing career could be over, his agent
sent an e-mail to Drayton McLane
informing the owner the seven-time
Cy Young Award winner is set to
start his personal-services contract
with the team on Jan. 1.
Hes moving toward retirement
and leaving open the possibility of
playing, agent Randy Hendricks
said.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Chiefs
coach Herm Edwards insisted
Wednesday that he has not been
told that running back Larry
Johnson has a broken foot and is
out for the year.
A report on My Fox Colorado
out of Denver quoted an unnamed
source within the Chiefs organiza-
tion as saying the two-time Pro
Bowl running back broke his right
foot in the loss on Sunday to Green
Bay and would not play again this
year.
The Chiefs, who play the Denver
Broncos this Sunday, have said only
that its a mid-foot sprain and he
will not play this week.
All I know is this is what Ive
been told. What Ive been told not
by that reporter but from our doc-
tors is that his foot is still swol-
len, a feisty, defensive Edwards told
reporters after practice.
Theyre still trying to look at it
to find out exactly where hes at. I
do know this its very doubtful
in my mind that hes going to play
this week. Thats what I know. Dont
shoot the messenger.
Asked directly if he had been
told that Johnsons foot was broken,
Edwards said:
What I just told you is what
Ive been told. And thats all I care
to know about, to be quite honest.
What you have to understand is
when youre a football coach, heres
what you want to know on Monday,
or on Sunday is a player going
to be available to play on Sunday?
Doctor says maybe, questionable,
doubtful. Once they tell me they
dont think hes going to be able
to play, fine. I move on. Thats all
Ive got to do. I dont have to worry
about next week. I cant control next
week. Ive got to concentrate on this
week.
The Chiefs (4-4) will use 34-
year-old Priest Holmes and untest-
ed rookie Kolby Smith to replace
Johnson, who signed a six-year, $45
million contract after holding out
the entire training camp. Johnson
rushed for more than 1,750 yards
each of the past two seasons and
has scored Kansas Citys last 36
touchdowns on the ground. But he
was off to a slow start and had only
559 yards on 158 carries when he
was injured late in the fourth quar-
ter against the Packers.
Ironically, he got his chance to
come off the bench and start when
Holmes, a three-time Pro Bowler,
went down in October 2005 with
a spinal injury. Now Holmes will
have an opportunity to resurrect
his career while Johnson nurses
an injury that could keep him out
much longer than one week.
Or will it? Edwards insisted he
does not know.
If they tell me something, when
I get the message this is what it is,
Ill be the first to tell you, he said.
I have nothing to hide.
In his heyday, Holmes was one
of the finest backs in the league. He
still holds the Chiefs career rushing
record.
Edwards has said he will not be
the featured back, but Holmes said
hes ready for 25 to 30 carries if that
is what is needed.
Im prepared, Holmes said.
Most of all, Im having fun. I think
the two years off gave me a chance
to grow personally. Ive learned a
lot, experienced a lot. Im just excit-
ed. I think the element I bring to the
team is one thats going to keep you
guessing.
NFL
Brees returning to form
in time for wine release
METAIRIE, La. Is it any
coincidence that the Saints would
thrive on a vintage Drew Brees
performance only days before the
launch of his new wine?
Im in season, Brees said
with a grin, when asked about
the launch of Vintage Brees
Chardonnay this week at one of
celebrity chef Emeril Lagasses
restaurants in New Orleans.
Brees was referring to the fact
that he kept his own drinking to
a minimum at the wine tasting,
given his responsibilities on the
football feld these days.
Yet he could have been talk-
ing about his form on the feld,
coming of a game in which he
completed 35 passes to nine
players for 455 yards and three
touchdowns in a 41-24 triumph
over Jacksonville.
That was the kind of perfor-
mance Brees turned in repeatedly
in 2006, when he led the NFL in
passing with 4,418 yards.
So confdent was head coach
Sean Payton in Brees ability to
deliver an assortment of throws
around the feld, he called 49
passing plays and 25 running
plays against the Jaguars.
We try to look at each game
and plan the best way we feel
like is going to give us a chance
to score points and move the
ball, Payton said. Each week, the
plan can vary some based on the
opponent.

Taylor McIntosh
The senior forward and team
captain pulled down a game-
high 11 rebounds in the Jay-
hawks frst game but shot only
one-for-eight from the feld.
Her rebounds will be an im-
portant part of the game plan,
Her shooting performance was
abnormally poor, and shell be
eager to get out and prove it
was a fuke. In the frst game,
McIntosh and her fellow post
players missed more layups
than they made, something
that cant happen again.
Will the Jayhawks play
as hard as they can, even
though its an exhibition
game?
On paper, an exhibition loss
means nothing. For a teams
psyche, however, it means
everything. Kansas cant aford
to lose this game because
of the repercussions it could
have when the regular season
gets underway. Playing smart
defense and fnishing shots are
the two most important things
for coach Bonnie Henricksons
players Thursday night. Without
both of them, they could have
a loss before ever really playing
a game.

Kansas vs. Emporia statE, 7 p.m. today, Allen Fieldhouse
high-scoring hornets visit
Kansas frontcourt must recover from shooting struggles
Cassondra Boston
Michelle Stueve is the most
obvious candidate, but the
Hornets success will hinge on
last seasons MIAA freshman of
the year, Cassondra Boston. The
5-foot-6 guard must navigate
Kansas defensive pressure to
distribute the ball, but she will
also take on considerable scoring
duties herself. Boston shot 36
percent from three-point range
last year and averaged 12.1
points for the Hornets, second on
the team behind Stueve. In order
for Emporia State to have any
chance of success against Kansas,
Boston will have to score ef-
ciently and limit costly turnovers.
Can the Kansas forward
tandem of Taylor McIntosh
and Porscha Weddington slow
down Stueve?
Kansas will focus its defensive
eforts on stopping the talented
senior. Coach Bonnie Henrickson
will try to force Emporia State
to fnd other scoring options.
Stueve is not a typical post play-
er: She shot 189 three pointers
last season and made 35 percent.
But Kansas should be able to
limit her touches and use double
teams to provide defensive pres-
sure if needed.

Emporia State was 10th in NCAA Division II in scoring ofense last
season when it put up almost 78 points per game. It was also one
of the best shooting teams in the nation, ranking among the top
20 in feld goal percentage, free throw percentage and three-point
percentage. The Hornets will begin 2007 ranked third in Division II,
and they return 6-foot-2 senior forward Michelle Stueve, last years
Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association leading scorer
and a two-time All-American. Despite losing the teams assist
leader, guard Tegan Stuart, and adding eight new faces, the
Hornets shouldnt exactly struggle to score, with three of last
seasons top four scorers returning.
defenSe
The Hornets outscored opponents by 16
points per game last season, mostly because
of their prolifc ofensive play. But the team
also relied on solid defensive performances.
Coach Brandon Schneider will have to
integrate eight new players into a defense
that allowed opponents to shoot only 36.9
percent last season. Although Emporia State ranked
14th in the nation in most blocked shots last season
behind 6-foot-1 center Casey Henningsen and 6-5
center Denisa Svarova, it will need to fnd diferent
sources to protect the rim this season after both
graduated.
OffenSe
Kansas had more than its fair share of problems ofensively before
pulling away for an 82-48 exhibition victory against Pittsburg State.
The Jayhawks shot a pedestrian 30 percent in the frst half, which
included a plethora of missed layups. Sophomore guards Danielle
McCray and Sade Morris scored a combined 35 points in
Sundays win, coming mostly from 10- to 15-foot jump
shots. The Jayhawks forwards were a combined 7-for-26
in their frst game. Look for senior Taylor McIntosh and
freshman Krysten Boogaard to come out with some-
thing to prove after disappointing premieres.
defenSe
Against Pittsburg State, Jayhawk guards showed a
vulnerability to dribble penetration, something theyll
need to take care of before the regular season. Pittsburg
State guard DePrice Taylor breezed right past defenders for 13
points, and Kansas will see plenty more quick guards like her
before too long. Also, the Gorillas threw up 18 three-pointers in the
loss. They made only three, but the Jayhawks cant allow that many
three-point attempts. The Jayhawks did a good job limiting Pittsburg
States trips to the free-throw line, but they need to expand the quick
feet used for that kind of defense out to the perimeter.
