At 4 years old, Jeanie Schiefel-
busch squirmed in her seat
next to her father, eyes dashing
around Allen Fieldhouse as the
Kansas mens team, then a Big
Eight roster of 12 white under-
graduate men, drilled layups to
warm up for the game. Trum-
pets fourished to kick of Im
a Jayhawk and the Fieldhouse
rumbled with expectant, blue
and crimson-clad basketball
fans clapping and cheering
along. Te energy and buzz of
the Phog enveloped her.
Te year was 1962 and Dr.
Richard Schiefelbusch, a pro-
fessor of Lifespan Studies at the
time, sat at a table a few rows
into the stands at mid-court,
keeping statistics for the coach-
es. A Jayhawk basketball fan
himself since watching the team
play in the auditorium before
the opening of the Fieldhouse
in 1955, he brought Jeanie along
to watch the game as he tallied
shot positions and assists for
the coaches.
We have been basketball
fanatics together ever since,
Richard said.
Richard, now 94 years old,
and Jeanie have attended every
home game for more than 50
years. Halfime and sometimes
even the fnal buzzer of away
games incite a phone call be-
tween the father and daughter
to praise or critique the ins and
outs of vital plays. Decades of
enthusiastic students, witty and
crisp banners and awe-inspiring
videos lionizing unforgettable
victories have made the two fall
in love with the passion that the
University houses for the game.
You cant replicate that ener-
gy, Jeanie said. Its someplace
that you can always come back
to and feel like this is where you
want to be.
Even now that she drives 40
minutes from her home in Prai-
rie Village, Jeanie fnds herself
looking forward to the season.
Jayhawk win afer Jayhawk win
doesnt just get her through the
winter months but brings her
together with her father.
When Jeanie was studying
for her masters degree in 1988,
the mens basketball team faced
the rival Oklahoma Sooners
in the NCAA National Cham-
pionship in Kansas City, Mo.
Knowing she would be starting
a fnal exam only a few hours
before tip-of, Jeanie jokingly
teased her dad to get tickets.

the Universitys athletics board,

poLice reporTs
Richard was ofered tickets and
coyly ofered to take Jeanie with
him, the two rushed to Kemper
Arena to cheer on the Jayhawks in
an unexpected 83-79 upset victory.
Te winthe game, the season,
the teamfelt like nothing short of
a miracle to be a part of.
It was a once in a lifetime bas-
ketball game, Richard said.
Te Schiefelbuschs have wit-
nessed more than just winning
seasons. In the mid-1960s, they
would spot Jo Jo Whites family in
the stands at the Fieldhouse. Black
players had only begun to emerge
on the national basketball scene
but the Jayhawks already had role
models like White and Wilt Cham-
berlain to lead the way.
Richard remembered how Wilt
the Stilt opened Lawrence up.
He would casually take a news-
paper and go into a restaurant and
sit down to read and order cofee
and if they didnt bring it, he was
patient, Richard said. Someone
would say, Why dont you serve
this guy? Hes famous! He became
integrated in his own pattern. He
was always liked. He had a knack
for being social, confdent.
Racial confict in Lawrence
could not interfere with enjoying
Jayhawk basketball. Despite ten-
sions in Lawrence when she was in
middle school, Jeanie found that all
strain disintegrated during games.
It seemed like basketball was
someplace you could go where you
didnt feel that; it was just people
enjoying basketball and you didnt
feel that racial strife inside the
Fieldhouse, Jeanie said.
Allen Fieldhouse acted as a sanc-
tuary: nothing could foil the rush
of adrenaline as the Jayhawks swat-
ted down opposing shots, piloted
a breakaway layup or drilled shot
afer shot like a well-oiled machine.
Basketball games became a hobby,
a ritual, a sacred bonding time as
the two returned to the Fieldhouse
year afer year.
Almost exactly four years ago,
my mom died, Jeanie said. Te
next day, we had tickets to the game
and we went. We just felt like we
needed to do that. We needed the
energy from the Fieldhouse and to
just be together doing something
that we always do. It felt right.
In years past, Jeanie and Richard
drove a recently-widowed friend of
Richard who would take a picture
of his deceased wife with him to sit
with at the games so he would feel
like he was still there with her.
Considering Richards age, the
two have a talk every year and
weigh the decision to buy season
tickets again. Without saying a
word, Jeanie tips the scales in the
I cant imagine KU basketball
without you, Jeanie said. I just
cherish every game that were there
Te tradition continues. Jeanie
and Richard will root on the team
against TCU Saturday and all other
home games this year in the front
row above the visiting team en-
trance, in seats fve and six, row
eight of section K1, where theyve
sat for nearly the past decade.
Its been 50 years and I hope
every year wont be the last, Jeanie
said. She turned to Richard and
added laughing: Well take you in
a wheelchair, Dad. Well get you in

an introduction.
Beyonc is the best thing that
has ever happened to America.
Its an indisputable fact. Find me a
person that doesnt like Beyonc.
She should be every females role
model and every guys dream.
If there is one thing to take-
away from Beyoncs HBO
Documentary, Life is but a
Dream, its that Beyonc has
remained relatively grounded
given her uncharted success.
Thats right. Beyonc is just
like the rest of us she talks

The cover of Vogues March

music industrys original diva, the
queen herself. But the Destinys
Child star didnt build this empire
During her climb to the top,
Beyonc had her peaks and pit-
falls and is no different than any-
one else in this regard.
Beyonc let fans into her life
by talking about the personal
struggles she has overcome, the
battle between her father and
former manager, who was unable
to keep business and family
relationships separate, and what
inspired her to work even harder
and eventually become her own
manager. She didnt become
famous overnight from a YouTube
video or homemade, self-released
sex tape. Beyonc started as and
continues to be a determined,
self-proclaimed perfectionist and
talented singer who isnt going to
stop anytime soon.
Not only did she work hard
you cant say she worked her
ass offbut she did it all for the
ladies. Beyonc is the defini-
tion of girl powersorry, Spice
Girls. Jay-Z may have put a ring
on it, but that didnt slow down
Beyoncs inner-independent
In her documentary, she flaw-
lessly explains her ongoing sup-
port for women and why she
feels a sense of obligation to
make women feel empowered.
Women have to work much
harder to make it in this world,
Beyonc said. It really pisses
me off that women dont get the
same opportunities as men do, or
money for that matter. Because,
lets face it, money gives men the
power to run the show. It gives
men the power to define our
values and to define whats sexy
and whats feminine, and thats
bullshit. At the end of the day, its
not about equal rights, its about
how we think. We have to shape
our own perception of how we
view ourselves.
Her sense of empowerment
shows through her strength
and self-confidence. How many
women could go on stage in what
she wears?
Bottom line, Beyonc is with-
out a doubt an extremely gifted
human being, who built her own
empire and created her own suc-
cess, like the rest of us can.
Its Beyoncs world and we are
all just living in it. Who runs this
mother? Beyonc.

Im willing to bet that every
student is extremely happy about
the chances of classes being
canceled at the University. The
University forcing students to
skip class is always more fun than
skipping class because students
are lazy. But one thing I know
students dont think about when
classes are canceled is possibly
the most crucial: Snow is the
First and foremost, snow is
dangerous. The University doesnt
cancel classes because Chancellor
Bernadette Gray-Little thinks stu-
dents would really enjoy playing
in the snow and having a grand
ol time. Noclasses get canceled
because people could possibly die
if they were to drive to and from
campus on the icy roads, or if
one of the buses lost control and
rammed into walking students.
Classes get canceled to save your
I understand why people are
excited for classes being canceled,
but replacing boring lectures with
dangerous weather conditions
seems to be hardly an enjoyable
I remember The Great
Snowpocalypse of 2011. I was
there. I survived. But I hated
snow then, and Im going to hate
snow now.
Maybe its because, even
though Ive been in Lawrence
for four years, I still havent gone
sledding down Mount Oread.
Maybe its because Im known
in the Kansan newsroom as
Grumpy Cat, and seem to be
notorious for hating everything
that exists. Maybe its because
during that great snow storm of
2011, I still had to work those
supposedly glorious days that
classes were canceled by the
University. And on my way to
work, my truck got stuck in the
snow and left me stranded.
Those are all real possibilities
as to why my heart is still ice cold
when tiny snowflakes fall from
the sky. But its also possible that
ever since the state deemed it
legal for me to drive a car, Ive
understood that snow can be a
real deterrent to everything that
is good. Instead of being able to
get to the places I want to be in a
timely, stress-free manner, I have
to plan out a strategic plan of
safety to travel. And sometimes
snow keeps people locked up
inside for several days, stopping
them from being able to get the
hot soup that they enjoy on an
ice-cold day.
But as I write this, I know none
of those are the real reason I hate
snow so much. The real reason is
the aftermath. The elements left
behind after snow surrenders to
the changing of the season: sand
and salt.
That nasty combination of
sand and salt that cities use to
try (and completely fail) to stop
snow and ice building up and
allow cars to drive on the roads.
Maybe the salt does help melt the
iceIm not a scientist, so I wont
guessbut is it really worth it
when there is such a nasty mix-
ture left behind when the snow
disappears? Probably not.
Once the snow is gone, I cringe
when I walk on the sidewalks
and see (and sometimes even
feel through my shoes) the mix-
ture. Its disgusting. There really
must be a better way to prepare
for something so sinister. This
method really does seem like it
was created in the 1700s.
General Washington, how
should we get rid of the snow?
asked a loyal American soldier
on Dec. 25, 1776, when George
Washington led his army across a
frozen Delaware River.
Salt, said the soon-to-be
leader of the Free World, General
George Washington. We will
use salt and sand to clear our
path and win the war against the
Sure. That didnt happen. But
thats how I feel when such an asi-
nine concept is used so regularly
to no avail in a world that allows
me to shut off my lights at night
by simply clapping.
Maybe if the United States of
America were to develop a much
better way to prepare for icy
conditions, I wouldnt hate snow
so much. Maybe if classes are
canceled today, and I spend all
my free time enjoying my life by
sledding down Mount Oread, I
wont hate snow so much.
But for now, I do. Screw you,

ve reached the point where
I automatically grow suspi-
cious any time an established
action franchise feels the need
to introduce the heros estranged
son. I guess you could call me
Mutt-shy. Yes, thats a reference
to Mutt Williams (Shia LaBeouf),
the illegitimate greaser ofspring of
Indiana Jones; a clownish pit stain
of a character whose vine-swing-
ing, hair-gelling antics helped make
2008s Kingdom of the Crystal
Skull the Bataan Death March of
summer blockbusters.
So when I frst heard A Good
Day to Die Hard, the ffh and
feeblest installment in the Die
Hard series, would involve John
McClane (Bruce Willis) traveling
to Russia to save his CIA operative
son (Sam Worthington clone Jai
Courtney), the news raised more
red fags than the Soviet National
Anthem. Like the Indiana Jones
quartet, the Die Hard flms have
moved beyond the neat, natural
endpoint of a trilogy and now exist
solely out of an almost vampiric
sense of brand preservation, one
that feeds on an audiences nos-
talgia for a beloved character and
ofers them nothing but a stunted,
lifeless imitation.
You see, John McClane isnt real-
ly John McClane anymore. Gone is
the noble, wisecracking New Jersey
cowboy of 1988, the bullet-headed
paragon of blue-collar virtue who
would crawl barefoot across bro-
ken glass to protect the innocent
from international crooks and ter-
rorists like the original flms aris-
tocratic arch-villain Hans Gruber
(Alan Rickman). Te McClane
who appears in A Good Day to
Die Hard is the quintessential
ugly American, a boorish bufoon
who barrels across a busy Moscow
highway in a stolen truck, casually
crushing dozens of civilians, all to
rescue his son, a capable govern-
ment agent who neither wants nor
needs his old mans help.
Te story, something about a
corrupt Russian defense minis-
ter and the radioactive vault he
lef buried beneath the ruins of
Chernobyl, is an unfocused,
convoluted muddle that renders
McClane a supporting player in
his own movie. Tat leaves us with
Courtneys Jack McClane, the latest
in a long line of action heroes with
a terminal case of daddy issues. His
Im extra tough cause you were
never there for me! repartee with
Willis is interrupted by a series of
progressively bigger, duller action
sequences, starting with a concus-
sive, blundering romp through
Moscow that made me long for a
similar scene in Goldeneye where
James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) com-
mandeers a T-55 tank for a joyride
through Red Square.
Longtime fans were quick to
disparage 2007s Live Free or Die
Hard because of its bland PG-13
rating and Willis willingness to
suddenly turn his everyman cop
into an invulnerable superhero.
Tose same tendencies are out in
force here, especially during scenes
where McClane emerges from
searing explosions and a fve-story
death plunge with nary a scratch,
while young Jack gets bruised and
bloodied in a way that seems pretty
convincing by action movie stan-
Despite his fantastic turn
as an assassin being hunted by
his younger self in last years
time travel opus Looper, Willis
remains an actor with no tan-
gible qualms about sleepwalking
his way through sub-par projects.
Did he read Skip Woods abysmal
screenplay and realize the writer
of universally panned dreck like
Hitman and X-Men Origins:
Wolverine would be wrong for the
Die Hard universe? Did he watch
the dailies and shake his head at
director John Moores nauseating
fondness for quick cuts and shaky-
cam as opposed to well-mounted,
inventively choreographed action
scenes? Or had the check already
Its difcult to imagine Willis
not harboring some private doubts
about essentially mortgaging the
future of the character that made
him a star 25 years ago. Te only
way to redeem the series at this
point is to go back to basics, back
to the scenario perfected by direc-
tor John McTiernan in the frst and
third movies: McClane the reluc-
tant hero trapped in an enclosed
space with interesting bad guys to
kill and loved ones to defend. Until
that happens, the Die Hard fran-
chise will remain on life support.

Bless Me, Ultima is one of those
novels that has so much literary
acclaim (and controversy) that
youve probably heard about it in
an English class at some point. In
fact, its arguably the most highly
regarded piece of literature written
by a Mexican-American.
But for some strange reason,
the film adaptation of this widely
known book has received barely
any publicity, prepared to com-
pletely slip under everyones radar.
Which is too bad, because theres
definitely a strong showcase of cul-
tural identity on display here, even
though the films undemanding
execution lacks much of the style
that made the novel so unique.
Telling a simple story of the
spiritual growth of young Antonio
(Luke Ganalon) as he encounters
good against evil in his community,
Bless Me, Ultima stands out for
its setting of New Mexico during
World War II, elements of magical
realism and portrayal of an inter-
esting culture.
The titular character of Ultima
(Miriam Colon), an old medicine
woman, drives the overarching plot
as she comes to live with Antonios
family, teaches him about her
mystical ways, and tries to keep
the vindictive Tenorio (Castulo
Guerra) and his three witch daugh-
ters at bay. Everything in the film
with Ultima makes for compel-
ling viewing, particularly because
of the occult aspects. But all of the
rest with just Antonio and his fam-
ily, which comprises over half of
the movie, isnt as satisfying.
Writer/director Carl Franklin,
who has a natural flair for high
drama, adapts Rudolfo Anayas
dynamic novel in the safest, least
risky manner possible. While a
scene where Ultima works to lift
a curse off Antonios uncle gets a bit
surreal and visually inventive, mak-
ing it one of the movies most effec-
tive sequences, Franklin otherwise
dials it back and even excises some
of the more otherworldly Ultima
parts of the book.
Diminishing the pronounced
aspect of the magical realism into
more traditional narrative contriv-
ances takes away from the overall
enchantment of the story, but the
other themes of life and death,
family responsibility, and reli-
gion and spirituality still unfold
thoughtfully. The problem is that it
lacks much engrossing depth or the
provocative, meaningful edge one
might expect from one of the most
challenged books in the country.
While the performances are all-
around competent, the dialogue
feels a bit forced at times, although
thats partially because the writing
is sometimes basic and stereotypi-
cal. But Colon succeeds wonder-
fully as such a mythical, wise and
kind yet powerful figure. Ganalon
doesnt possess such an engaging
presence, but as a child actor, he
shows a natural curiosity of the
world thats easy to step into.
When it comes down to it, Bless
Me, Ultima has far more of a
small screen vibe than big screen.
The same way an original Lifetime
movie often takes an interesting
topic, then plainly moralizes it so
as to not offend anyone and uses
straightforward storytelling, so
does this adaptation. A nice tale,
but an unremarkable one.

Rap veteran Talib Kweli is performing
in Lawrence this Friday at the Granada
to promote his upcoming album, Pris-
oner of Conscious, which is his ffth
solo album. He will be joined by sup-
porting acts Heartfelt Anarchy, Reach
and Bizzy.
Kweli has been known as a true lyri-
cist in rap ever since his early work as
Blackstar with Mos Def. Kweli has been
in the rap game since 1998 and has
managed to stay relevant throughout
his entire career. In 2012 Kweli released
a mixtape, Attack the Block, which is
still available for free. He will release
his newest album on April 23.
Kweli is known for his conscious
style of rap, where instead of talking
about fashy things he owns, Kweli talks
about more important issues within so-
ciety and rap itself.
Ive been a fan of Talib Kweli for a
long time, said Josh Florez, a freshman

Artists like Frank Ocean and
Miguel have been receiving
plenty of media attention sur-
rounding the
55th Annual
G r a m my s .
Theyre doing
s o me t h i n g
right. They are
reviving and
revamping the
long lost genre
of R&B.
According to Spin Magazine,
R&B is evolving and this is a
thrilling moment for fans of the
music. The magazine has named
Alt-R&B as the Trend of the
Year in 2012, and music critic Eric
Harvey coined the term PBR&B,
that has become a popular buzz-
Cristelle Fornesi, a freshman
from San Francisco, is happy to
see R&B making a comeback.
Frank Ocean is able to write
about so much more than just
superficial things. He includes
real messages into his lyrics that
appeal to both men and women,
Fornesi said. People appreciate
more thoughtful songwriting, and
that is something that has really
been lacking these days. Frank
Ocean delivers that, plus a pretty
melody to go with it.
Aside from more meaningful
content, technological advance-
ments have certainly helped the
evolution of R&B as well. Both
digital recording and the Internet
have largely supported the suc-
cess that Ocean and Miguel are
Each artist not only earned
a spot as a performer at the
Grammys, but also was in the
running for several nominations.
Ocean was nominated for record
of the year, album of the year, best
new artist, and beat out Miguel for
best urban contemporary album.
Miguel was nominated for song of
the year, best R&B performance,
and won for best R&B song.
Yes, both artists possess
immense talent, but something
else must be in the works that
led them to such sudden success.
Ocean and Miguel dont restrict
themselves to fit the mold of just
one genre. While they can be
considered R&B artists, they are
certainly covering more range.
Pat McQuillan, a freshman
from St. Paul, Minn., agreed.
If R&B was ever losing its
spot in the limelight, Ocean has
most definitely brought it back,
McQuillan said. Ocean has songs
that are throwbacks to the smooth
R&B vibe of Motown with a mod-
ern twist, or that take the soulful
tenor of R&B and throw it in a
present day hip hop flow If
anything I would say Ocean has
opened the doors for this genre.
One genre that has a strong
presence in both Ocean and
Miguels songs is electronic dance
music (EDM). Although it is often
pop artists who incorporate wubs
and bass into the chorus of their
catchy songs, they are no longer
the only ones.
In Oceans hit, Thinkin Bout
You, Spin says that his melan-
choly moans are reinforced with a
warbling synthesizer, and goes
on to say that Miguels well-known
song, Adorn, also includes dis-
torted bass throbs that surround
Miguels smooth murmur.
Though EDM has proven to
be too much for some, Ocean
and Miguel have seemed to find
just the right balance. By choos-
ing to test the boundaries of the
genre, their sensuous croons have
reached new levels, and new fans.
If EDM can even slightly be
held accountable for bringing
back R&B, it is hard to say where
it will wobble to next.

The Jewish holiday of Purim
falls on Feb. 23. Purim is consid-
ered to be the most joyous holiday
of the Jewish calendar. The literal
meaning of the word Purim is lots,
in reference to a lottery that would
determine the day of the annihila-
tion of the Jews.
Fortunately, the Jewish commu-
nity survived and prospered as a
result of unity and commitment to
Jewish identity.
According to Rabbi Zalman
Tiechtel, executive director of the
Chabad Center for Jewish Life, the
holiday of Purim highlights the
significance of joy and together-
ness in Judaism.
To honor and celebrate this posi-
tive energy, Chabad will be host-
ing a Mediterranean Purim at the
Hookah House. According to a
press release, Chabad is looking to
put a creative twist on this years
student celebration.
The event will include a reading
of a special scroll, known as the
Megillah, as well as great food,
music, treats, and free hookah.
The press release invites par-
ticipants to dress in costume in the
spirit of Purim.
Brianna Brown, a freshman
from Leawood, will be attending
the event. Im excited because
Purim is like the Jewish Halloween,
Brown said. It will be fun to be
around other students who are
happy to be celebrating together.
Im especially looking forward to
the location, I think that alone will
draw students in.
The event will not only be a
night of fun but a learning experi-
ence as well. According to the press
release, the event is campus-wide
and open to all students regardless
of affiliation or background.
The event will be held at the
Hookah House at 730 Massachusetts
Street in Downtown Lawrence. It
will be on Saturday, February 24
from 7:30-10 p.m.

The struggle to find meaning
in the wake of tragedy is a natural
response to heartbreaking news,
and reactions to the mass shooting
at Sandy Hook Elementary School
are no exception. Millions in awe
of the event have left no stone
unturned in search of a solution
to Americas fundamental problem
with aggression and violence, pri-
marily related to guns. Advocates
of stricter gun control are calling
on politicians to target government
policies and organizations that
might allow someone like Adam
Lanza, the Sandy Hook shooter, to
slip through the cracks.
One such target is the video
game industry, which has been
placed in the national spotlight
many times before in response to
violent crimes. Some consider the
ease of access to high-powered fire-
arms to be the fundamental issue,
while others are looking closer to
home and assessing what creates
this culture of violence in the first
In an average day of media
consumption, it is near impossible
to avoid violent images, whether
it be in movies, music or video
games. At a certain point, sepa-
rating violence from mainstream
media seems about as probable
as removing wetness from water;
even earlier generations grew up
with classic shoot em up mov-
ies like John Waynes True Grit.
However, violence in the video
gaming world has evolved much
more gradually than in film. The
question many are asking is: Does
exposure to violent material in a
virtual world elicit violent behavior
in the real world?
Grassroots efforts to com-
bat violent video gaming have
already begun, like the Violent
Video Games Return Program,
an event hosted early this year in
Connecticut in which residents
were encouraged to bring their
violent video games to be smashed
and incinerated in exchange for a
$25 gift card from the Chamber of
Other evidence-free attacks
on the video game industry have
shown the highly reactive nature of
politicians and the press. Activists
are calling for game developers to
completely overhaul their business
strategies and to reevaluate games
that send implicit messages leading
to violence. Among the suggested
solutions include: tighter regula-
tion on games with mature (18+
years old) ratings and a more regu-
lated system of banning overly-
violent titles.
In order to determine how and
why changes to this industry can
be made, it is important to under-
stand video gaming at an elemen-
tary level. Universal goals shared
by most video games are typically
gathering resources, acquiring a
high number of points and ulti-
mately avoiding death. Decades
ago, these principles brought tre-
mendous success to even the sim-
plest games like Galaga, an 8-bit
arcade game where the player must
fend off an encroaching wall of
pixelated aliens at increasingly dif-
ficult levels. However, newer tech-
nology coupled with the demand
for more realistic gaming experi-
ences has forced the hand of game
developers to push the envelope on
both reality and violence.
Ian Tait, a senior from Overland
Park, Kan., has played video games
throughout his whole life and says
he spends around 10-15 hours each
week on gaming. Violence in
video games dont contribute to
someones decision to bring a gun
to school. It might show them how
weapons are handled, but these
people in question are predisposed
to violence anyway. Tait considers
his most violent gaming experience
to be from playing Call of Duty:
Modern Warfare, a first-person
shooter in which the main objec-
tive is to seek out and kill other
players in competitive matches.
The most commonly attacked
games, including the Grand Theft
Auto series and Mortal Kombat
have been in the national spot-
light many times before due to
their graphic content that, at times,
encourages violent in-game behav-
ior. In fact, the gruesome blood
and gore in Mortal Kombat led
to politicians giving the gaming
industry one year to form its own
rating system, the Entertainment
Software Ratings Board (ESRB)
which is still used today.
In titles like Grand Theft Auto,
players are given endless possibili-
ties to do what they want to who-
ever they want in this virtual world,
also known as a sandbox environ-
ment. This open-ended freedom
has led many to ask if games allow-
ing players to act violently with
no consequences directly translate
to real-world behavior, where the
consequences are very real.
In a conference last month,
Vice President Joe Biden sat down
with representatives from the
video game industry to hear con-
cerns and address the issue head-
on. President Obama entrusted
Biden with leading a series of
reform meetings with executives
from major game development
companies. Daniel Greenberg, the
Anti-Censorship chairman of the
International Game Developers
Association urged Biden to not
be seeking ways to constrain this
emerging medium so early in its
development by scapegoating video
games for societal ills.
The U.S. government did irrep-
arable damage to the comic book
industry in the 1950s by using
faulty research to falsely blame
juvenile delinquency and illiteracy
on comic books, Greenberg said.
It decimated the production of one
of the few kinds of literature that
at-risk youths read for pleasure.
Censoring video games could have
similar unintended consequences.
As violent video games con-
tinue to keep politicians and wor-
ried parents up at night, there will
undoubtedly be more studies con-
ducted to determine the effects of
gaming on the human psyche.

I can put some
protein in you.
When Kara Mraz, a junior from
Chicago, received this text from a
guy and she lost interest immedi-
ately. She had declined his invita-
tion to go out drinking, and was
explaining that she was relaxing
and drinking her post-exercise
protein shake. But the guy would
not give up. Afer she ignored sev-
eral of his texts, he wanted to know
why she was so angry. She told him
to reread the protein text, and then
never spoke to him again. Mraz,
like many college students, faces
the challenges of trying to date in a
culture of text messaging reliance.
I think a lot of people would
not have the relationships they do
without texting because they do
not have the balls to say something
in person that they do via texting,
said Mraz.
Approximately 83 percent of
American adults own cell phones
and 73 percent of them send and
receive text messages. Te most
avid of these texters are young
adults, according to a 2011 survey
by the Pew Research Centers In-
ternet and American Life Project.
Although college students have
adapted texting to ft their dating
lifestyle, the evolution of this tech-
nology is not the turnof. Its the
misuse and abuse of text messag-
ing that is of-putting.
Despite her critique of what
people might say via text messag-
ing that they would not say face-
to-face, Mraz admits that she does
the same thing.
I texted my boyfriend that he
had no direction in his life and to
quit wasting his time with bullshit
jobs, Mraz said. But it is bad to
text about serious problems be-
cause when we get together nei-
ther one of us says anything about
them, so there is this giant elephant
in the room, but no one brings it
up so nothing gets solved.
Adrianne Kunkel, an associ-
ate professor of communication
studies, says that the lack of face-
to-face conversation in text mes-
saging makes it easier for people
to say things that they might not
otherwise say when confronted in
a face-to-face context.
Texting seems to be an easy
way to avoid relationship prob-
lems or tensions, Kunkel said.
We should never forget that deal-
ing with the discomfort or awk-
wardness of handling confict with
others is a huge building block in
our experience sets that make us
more skilled communicators and
relationship partners.
Instead, Tracey Steinberg, a
dateologist and host of Dating
Help 911!, says texting should be
used as a quick form of commu-
nication that relays only simple
Tere are so many misunder-
standings and arguments over
texting, Steinberg said. Real con-
versations need to take place over
the phone.
Tis lack of personalization in
text messaging can not only lead
to bold assertions but vague and
confusing messages. Jefrey Hall,
an assistant professor of com-
munication studies and co-author
of an article on texting, says what
makes texting appealing can also
make it frustrating because of the
amount of ambiguity and the ab-
sence of meaning.
Kunkel also says that text mes-
saging is less work and is less
meaningful than face-to-face con-
Texting as a means to negoti-
ate a date prevents the full expres-
sion of feelings and experiences
that might happen in person or by
phone, Kunkel said. It also takes
away some of the responsibility
that goes into dating and main-
taining a romantic relationship.
However, texting can still work
toward college students advan-
My boyfriend and I text a little
bit more than we talk and hang
out but I prefer it that way because
I get sick of people way too fast,
Mraz said. I do not want to see
them every day .

For example, in iMuscle, on the

in 3D and see how your quadriceps

muscles, and you can really create a

Keeps your muscles guessing: You
can never run out of exercises to do,
because you just fnd a new one on
the app.
Tracks your work out: Some mem-
bers who train, we can actually look
and see what they have been doing.
Some apps have this feature where
you can go an add your trainer as a
friend, and then we will have access
to everything the person logs in.
Forfeits technique: For some
people who have never learned to
exercise, I cant say if they will get the
results. Te form and technique, you
need to know it.
Prior experience is necessary: If
you have some exercise background
you can learn a lot from it, but if
you have no base it might not be for
No Guidance: People think they
know (how to exercise), but when
we walk around on the ftness foor
correcting people well ask oh where
did you learn that and they will say
I saw it on either a website or appli-
No External Motivation: Some
people dont push themselves hard
enough. Tey think that by getting
the app and following the workout
they are going to get exactly what
they want.

goals, and pays you for meeting
your objective while sticking you
with a fne if you dont. Jones earns
about $3.50 a week for exercising
four days a week, and is penalized
$5.00 for each day missed. I cant
be lazy now, Jones said. It forces
me to work out, and Im punished
if I dont by losing money. He
acknowledged that money is the
main motivator, especially as a col-
lege student, and he has dropped
almost 20 pounds in the past
Te Econometrica study showed
a signifcant diference between
the behavior of the low-incentive
group and high-incentive group
when participants were awarded
money for exercising. It reiterated
that paying people to go to the
gym positively afected workout
behavior. While most of us dont
get immediately rewarded for be-
ing active, GymPact compro-
mises workout habits with a slight
push and an incentive.
Other workout facilities, such
as the Ambler Student Recreation
Fitness Center, charge money for
their services, but hope the results
are worth the funds.
Te recreation center is free for
current students for general use, or
students can purchase a $50 pass
per semester for KU Fit classes.
Mackenzie VanBeest, an English
graduate student from Chicago, Il-
linois, got one her frst year at the
University, and she hasnt looked
back since. She wanted to stay
healthy, and said the pass is well-
worth the money. I work out on
my own, too, but the classes have
more motivation and pressure to
be there and perform, she said.
Teres like camaraderie, and you
defnitely get your moneys worth.
Jill Urkoski, Associate Director
for Recreational Services at the
recreation center, said that external
encouragement is helpful, but it all
comes down to a persons internal
motivation. She used the Scale
Down Challenge, which students,
staf and faculty can currently sign
up for, as an example. Te Scale
Down Challenge is $25 for a 10-
week competition that provides
an opportunity for people to be in
a program that gives them a pos-
sible incentive. Tat incentive is
a cash reward for the top winners
who lose the highest percent of
body weight.
Urkoski warns that prizes will
not always be around as a motiva-
tional tool. Any incentive isnt go-
ing to make you a life-long exercis-
er, she said. If that works for you
at frst, thats wonderful because its
going to allow you to keep want-
ing to do it. Eventually it ofen be-
comes an internal motivation.
Exercising isnt the only key to a
healthy lifestyle, but it is defnitely
a start. For these students and fac-
ulty members, factoring in money
raises the stakes and turns a rough

Carol Simon, a philosopher and
author of Bringing Sex into Focus:
Te Quest for Sexual Integrity,
says that pornography can be a
problem, because it ofen depicts
women in unrealistic ways. Tis,
she says, can shape a mans atti-
tude about or expectations of real
Women are ofen objectifed in
porn, which is not the way that all
women actually want to be treated
by their sexual partners and porn
stars are not what average women
look like. Because of a lack of a re-
alistic portrayal of women, porn
can create a negative experience
for men in their sexual encounters.
It can also cause confict within a
couple if neither party is getting
what they expect out of their sex.
I think it can cause problems
for people, because people get lost
in the fantasy of it, Adam said.
People want do the things they
see people in porn doing.
According to Robert Weiss ar-
ticle Does Watching Porn Afect
Intimate Relationships?, viewing
porn too ofen can cause reduced
interest in intimacy with a long-
term spouse or partner. Viewing
porn too ofen can cause men to
create a vision of women as objects
and cause them to regard women
as lower beings in circumstances
other than sex.
Dennis Dailey, professor emeri-
tus at the University of Kansas, said
that there are many ways that porn
can negatively afect a relationship.
Dailey said that porn isnt always
a negative thing in a relationship,
If you think about it for a min-
ute, people use all kinds of things
that could be a turn on: food, wine,
or a romantic evening. Erotic ma-
terial can do the same thing, Dai-
ley said.
Dailey said that porn usually
becomes a problem when one per-
son in the relationship views it as a
threat or when it begins to take the
place of sex in a relationship.
Charlie, a student from Wichita,
said that he watches porn with
his girlfriend and that
it is good thing in their
relationship. Tey use it
to learn new things to
experiment with in their
sex life. He said that this
has strengthened their
sexual relationship, be-
cause they can both see
and understand what the
other person likes.
Im not sure why ev-
eryone thinks that porn
is such a bad thing, Charlie said.
I have never had a bad experience,
because if you use porn the right
way, it is a great way to learn about
your boyfriend or girlfriend.
In a relationship, the seam of
pornography cuts both ways.
While it can become the force that
pushes two people apart, it can
also bring them closer together.
For these young men and their
relationships, caution in the use of
pornography is key.
While some people have serious
problems with porn and how they
use it, others think that is a great
tool to help build a strong relation-

Building top-quality race cars
from scratch is more than a hobby
for engineering students.
Jayhawk Motorsports is a student
group that designs, builds and races
formula cars. The team builds two
cars each year: one electric car and
one combustion car that runs on
ethanol. Reaching 60 mph in four
seconds is the ultimate goal.
There are three teams within the
Jayhawk Motorsports team: chassis
and aerodynamics, suspension and
The powertrain team works on
the engine and the components of
it, such as the exhaust and the cool-
ing system. Jeff Dickinson, a senior
from Manhattan, is the team lead
of the eight-member powertrain
team. Dickinson said that they use
the cars from previous years as a
guideline to figure out what went
well and what didnt go so well.
Overland Park senior Matt Toft
is the Leader of the seven-member
suspension team. The suspension
team works on parts of the cars
such as the shocks, breaks and
steering. Toft said the ultimate goal
is to get as much force into the tires
as possible. Toft has been interested
in cars since he first started driving
and plans to go into automotive
Its the freedom of getting away,
Toft said.
Adam Jeffries, a senior from
Leawood, is a mechanical engineer-
ing major, and the leader of the
seven-member chassis team. The
chassis team creates the body of the
car. The bodies of the two cars are
made up of several layers of carbon
fiber. The design is first cut out of
foam, covered in carbon fiber and
then baked until hardened.
Our biggest thing this year is
reducing weight, Jeffries said. Its
an intricate process.
Some Jayhawk Motorsports team
members spend 40 to 50 hours per
week working in the shop. The
middle of March is their goal to
have all of the parts machined and
put together, with April 1 as their
running car deadline. Jeffries said
that this project is as close to real
life work as the students can get.
Its one of the most challeng-
ing things a lot of us will ever do,
Jeffries said.
Robert Sorem, the faculty advi-
sor for Jayhawk Motorsports, has
been working with the team since
it first started in 1993. There are
about 50 team members total,
including volunteers. Sorem said
that the multidisciplinary aspect of
the team is one of the best parts of
the program.
It encompasses everything in
engineering, Sorem said.
Jayhawk Motorsports competes
in multiple national competitions
each summer. Last year, the team
finished building one of their cars
in the trailer on the way to a com-
petition in Detroit. They finished
around 60th place because they had
no time to test the car after finish-
ing it. But within one months time,
they managed to fix the problems
and ended up earning first place
overall at the Formula Society of
Automotive Engineers West com-
petition in Lincoln, Neb.
JT Adkins, a graduate student
from Lenexa, was one of the rac-
ers last year. Adkins got into cars
through his dad and said his best
shot to be involved with racing was
to be an engineer.
You can see a difference between
a team that tested their car a lot and
those who just finished, Adkins
Jayhawk Motorsports first
competition this year will be in
Michigan against about 120 teams
from around the world. The electric
car will compete at the first ever
Formula Electric Competition in
Lincoln, Neb., this summer. The
team is also registered to compete
in Austria in August.

Still a title threat
despite offense
Tharpes game-winning basket ends the Cowboys seven-game streak
Celebrating 115 years of legendary basketball
Slow pokeS
blake SchuSter
efore I start this column,
Id like to preface by saying
that I think Bill Self will
consistently have this offense run-
ning smoothly by the time March
Madness comes along.
That being said, in the last
month, other than the games
against Kansas State and Texas, the
offense has been teetering between
stagnant and moribund. Similar to
Jack Dawson at the end of Titanic,
there were times when it seemed
the Jayhawks offense was going
to make it onto the piece of drift-
wood, but there were also times
when they were so cold that hypo-
thermia seemed all but certain.
I have nothing but confidence
that Bill Self will find an effective
offensive game plan. It appears
that transformation has already
started. But even if the offense
doesnt continue to improve, the
Jayhawks are still a title threat.
Five years ago, when Kansas
cut down the nets in San Antonio,
16 teams averaged over 80 points
per game. This year, four teams
average more than 80, with only
one team from a power confer-
ence (Indiana). The Jayhawks were
10th in the nation with 81.5 points
per game in 2008. That would put
them in third this year.
Take a look at the games
from Tuesday night. There were
marquee games between Indiana
and Michigan State, Miami (FL)
and Virginia, and Missouri and
Florida. No team scored more
than 72 points, and the team with
72 was the high-scoring Indiana
Hoosiers. In essence, offenses
around the nation have been about
as effective as laws prohibiting
underage drinking.
Trends from the last ten years
would suggest that Kansas is not
a title threat. Statistical whiz Ken
Pomeroy, creator of,
finds trends that help predict
who will compete for national
championships and who will
not. Since he began tracking sta-
tistics in 2003, every champion
except two (Syracuse in 2003 and
Connecticut in 2011) has been
ranked in the top four of offensive
efficiency. Most are ranked one or
two. Kansas is currently ranked
25th. Also, every champion in
that time has averaged at least 73
points per game. Kansas sits on
the fence at 73.4.
This year could be a year that
breaks the trend. The last three
national championship games
have resulted in the following
scores: 61-59, 53-41, and 67-59.
These games are exactly the kind
of games Bill Self wants to see
with this team. If a game is in the
50s or 60s, Kansas is right where
it wants to be. In a high scoring
affair, Kansas will struggle to keep
up offensively. However, if the past
three championship games are any
indication, the Jayhawks should
feel comfortable relying on their
defense and an offense that simply
needs to be adequate.
Thats not to say that Kansas
will win the national champion-
ship. Right now, I wouldnt put my
money on it. But they certainly
are still a threat, and potential for
offensive struggles do not preclude
them from contention.
If Bill Self can keep the offense
improving, all the better.

Sometimes, like on Wednes-
day night, it only takes one shot
to win a basketball game.
Sometimes, like in the waning
moments of a heart wrenching
double-overtime debacle, the
only thing that matters is the
next shot.
Sometimes, like when Kan-
sas took down Oklahoma State
68-67 in a match that required
two extra periods, you find out
everything you need to know
about your team.
Heres what Kansas learned:
after not connecting on a field
goal for nearly ten minutes, ev-
ery shot looks good if it goes in.
And in that case, Naadir
Tharpe took the most gorgeous
shot of the season.
With the Jayhawks down by
two and twenty seconds remain-
ing, Tharpe grabbed control of
the ball at the top of key and be-
gan rolling to his left.
It wasnt the ideal scenario,
but Elijah Johnson fouled out
midway through the first over-
time and Kansas coach Bill Self
had no choice but to hand over
his offense to the sophomore
As Tharpe began rolling
towards the paint, the Cow-
boys moved in to trap him, but
Tharpe wouldnt have it. He spun
around his defenders, launching
himself immediately into the air,
contorting his body perfectly
and releasing a teardrop shot
from just inside the lane.
To that point, Kansas had
missed all six of its field goal
attempts in both overtimes, but
had made up for it by getting to
the line.
Yet even the Jayhawks free
shots were struggling to fall
as Kansas shot 17-27 from the
charity stripe.
Freshman guard Ben McLem-
ore wasnt any help either. He
started the game off with a rare
0-8 performance from the field
and finished 3-12 with seven
points his lowest total of the
season (his previous low was
9 points, which hes stalled at
twice this year.)
The only hope Kansas had to
stave off the first sweep at the
hands of the Cowboys since
1983 was Travis Releford, who
played his most beautiful game
of the year going 7-10 from the
field with 18 points and six re-
But life wasnt any easier for
Oklahoma State. Its star point
guard, Marcus Smart, had fouled
out and it was living off its shoot-
ing guard Markel Browns (7-15,
20 points) miracle shots to keep
the Cowboys in the game.
All Kansas could hope for was
that with 20 seconds remaining,
and down by one, it could get a
good look at the basket and let
fate or talent take care of the
Yet when Tharpe released his
teardrop, it felt like both factors
were working for the Jayhawks.

the second overtime of an nCaa college basketball game in Stillwater, okla., kansas won in double overtime 68-67.
It was expected to be a battle
that could decide Big 12 Player of
the Year.
Instead, it more closely resem-
bled a game of Whack-a-Mole.
Kansas freshman Ben McLemore
and Oklahoma State freshman
Marcus Smart combined for 58
points the last time the Jayhawks
and Cowboys met, an 85-80
Oklahoma State victory in early
They didnt come close to that
this time. They were quiet for the
first 30 minutes, just two bodies on
the court, briefly popping up from
time to time to hit a free throw here
or commit a turnover there.
And after a brief renaissance,
they disappeared again.
Smart finished with 16 points
and McLemore had seven, but
neither ever got into an offen-
sive rhythm Wednesday night in
Stillwater, where the Jayhawks won
68-67 in double overtime.
Both players didnt make a
field goal for the first 30 minutes.
McLemore was 0-8 from the field
in the first half, while Smart was
Still, with 10 minutes remaining
in regulation, McLemore seemed
like he might break out of his dol-
After sophomore guard Naadir
Tharpe missed a 3-pointer,
McLemore corralled the rebound
in midair and unleashed his offen-
sive frustration with a two-handed
dunk to put Kansas up by three
Three and a half minutes later,
he swished a 3-pointer from the
corner, and made a layup two min-
utes later.
But that was his whole nights
work. McLemore didnt score for
the rest of the game and shot 3-12
to give him seven points. In fact,
the whole Kansas team did very
little scoring the rest of the night,
and didnt make a single field goal
in either overtime until Tharpes
jumper with 18 seconds left in the
second overtime gave Kansas the
lead for good.
Oklahoma States Smart had an
equally tough night shooting, and
his body paid the price. Smart suf-
fered shoulder and ankle injuries in
the first half, and then had another
injury in overtime before fouling
out with 2:25 left in the second
Smart didnt convert a field goal
until he made a 2-point jumper
with 3:21 remaining in the second
half. But then he made a 3-pointer
to tie the game at 57 points with
1:12 left in regulation. Those were
two big buckets for the Cowboys,
but they were Smarts only ones of
the game. He finished 2-14 from
the field.
But he had a bigger offensive
presence throughout the game
than McLemore, because Smart got
to the free throw line 14 times and
made 11 free throws. McLemore
didnt visit the free throw line
For all of his offensive struggles,
Smart nearly made everyone forget
about them. At the end of the first
overtime Smart threw up a miracle

It clanked off of the front of the
rim, but if it had been another inch
or so longer, the shot of the year
would have given the Cowboys
control of the drivers seat in the
Big 12 title race. Instead, Kansas
and Kansas State are tied for first
place in the conference at 10-3,
while the Cowboys are at 9-4. But
Kansas owns the tiebreaker over
Kansas State by virtue of its two
victories against the Wildcats.

Chalmers joins Kansas greats with jersey retirement
fer enjoying a weeks worth of Ma-
rio Chalmers nostalgia, I couldnt
help but wonder where his No. 15
jersey would ft among the other 27 hang-
ing up in the Allen Fieldhouse rafers. Af-
ter all, there was a little bit of skepticism
from the public when it was announced
that his jersey was going to be retired.
Depending on whether you count the
Helms Foundation championships in
1922 and 1923, Kansas has won 3 to 5
National Championships. Before Marios
Miracle shot against Memphis in 2008,
Danny Manning and the rest of the 1988
team were the last bunch to cut down the
nets. Even at Kansas, winning a National
Championship (at the very least) throws
your name into the hat for having your
jersey commemorated.
Troughout his career in Lawrence,
Chalmers was a magnet for defensive
awards, averaging 2.6 steals per game, ac-
cording to He also
averaged 12.2 points and 2.8 assists per
game. Not to mention he has an NBA
Championship by his name.
I liken Chalmers to former guard Kirk
Hinrich, whose jersey was retired in 2009.
He averaged 12.4 points, 4.7 assists, and
1.5 steals per game during his highly deco-
rated career at Kansas. Hinrich came close
to winning that ever-feeting champion-
ship, but was defeated by Syracuse in 2003.
With National Championships coming so
few and far between, its difcult to ignore
Chalmers resume. And it goes without
mentioning that the championship come-
back and miraculous last-second shot will
be forever singed in our memories as Jay-
hawk fans.
I consider Chalmers one of Kansas
best, but upon researching other Kansas
greats, I couldnt help but fall mesmer-
ized by one player in particular: Wilt Te
Stilt Chamberlain.
In his frst game as a Jayhawk, Cham-
berlain shattered the single game points
and rebounds record at Kansas. His
trademark fnger-roll and fadeaway jump
shot were indefensible at every level, but
especially at Kansas from 1956 to 1958.
Chamberlain had an illustrious career
in the NBA from 1959-1973 as well. Ac-
cording to, he was the only
player in NBA history to average 30 points
and 20 rebounds per game in a season, the
only player to score 100 points in a single
NBA game, and he set the all-time record
for rebounds in a single game: 55. When it
was all said and done, Chamberlain won
two NBA championships and was named
an All-Star 13 times.
Te 7-foot-1 monstrosity literally
changed the game of basketball. When
toeing the line for a free throw, Chamber-
lain would toss his shot of the backboard,
run into the lane and dunk the ball. It
was unstoppable, and was later outlawed
by the NBA to neutralize his dominance.
Wilt was also responsible for widening the
lane from 12 to 16 feet, and infuenced the
goaltending rule: a player can no longer
touch the ball when it is within the cylin-
der of the basket.
Kansas is home to the creator of basket-
ball, James Naismith, and its rule-changer,
Wilt Chamberlain. It is an incredible hon-
or to be mentioned among these greats.
Congrats to Mario. Tis is truly the bas-
ketball capital of the world.

Te Jayhawks are excited to get
another shot at taking on Auburn
at the Islanders Classic in Corpus
Kansas will play Texas A&M-
Corpus Christi, Auburn, Southern
University and New Mexico this
weekend in Corpus Christi. Te
Jayhawks hope to build on bright
spots that they have had the frst
two weekends and to work on be-
ing more consistent.
Coach Megan Smith and play-
ers are most excited to get an-
other chance to play Auburn. Te
Jayhawks fell to Auburn 8-5 afer
holding the lead until the Tigers
exploded for fve runs with one out
lef in the sixth inning.
Smith said that Auburn is a real-
ly good team to play and is a good
challenge for them.
We are not going to waste it,
said freshman catcher Alex Hugo
on getting a second chance at Au-
burn. We should have won that
game in my opinion, and we are
out to beat them.
Te Jayhawks will get their sec-
ond chance at Auburn Friday at 1
p.m. Auburn is 10-1 on the season
with their lone blemish coming
against Tennessee Chattanooga.
Te Tigers have a game against
Georgia State Wednesday before
they square of with Kansas.
We are? Very excited to get
another chance at Auburn, said
senior infelder Mariah Montgom-
ery. I know that is a lot of what we
are excited about this weekend,
Kansas will face Texas A&M-
Corpus Christi Tursday at 3 p.m.
and again Friday at 11 a.m. Corpus
Christi has managed a 2-8 record
this season and has played a couple
Big 12 foes, Baylor and Texas. Te
Corpus Christi Islanders have only
managed to score three or more
runs in three out of 10 games thus
far this season. Te Jayhawks will
look to start the Islanders Classic
strong against Corpus Christi.
Te Jayhawks will face Southern
University on Saturday and New
Mexico on Sunday. Southern has
yet to earn a victory this season
with an overall record of 0-10. Te
Jaguars have failed to score more
than one run in eight out of 10
games this season.
New Mexico has a 5-8 record
overall and lost their frst seven
games of the season but have since
won fve of their last six.

Kansas womens head golf coach
Erin ONeil Miller wasnt satisfed
with the performance of her team
in last weeks spring season debut
at the Florida State Match-Up Invi-
tational. So for ONeil, it was back
to the drawing board this week,
and replacing Gabby DiMarco and
Michelle Woods in next weeks Sir
Pizza Terrapin Challenge will be
Audrey Yowell and transfer Mina-
mi Levonowich.
Te spot where we kind of lost
some shots [last week] was on the
bottom part of the lineup in the
four and fve spot, ONeil said. In
fall, we had pretty much across the
board everyone shooting in the 70s,
and at this tournament, thats where
I think we lost a couple shots.
Te loss of shots towards the
bottom of the lineup was enough
for ONeil to switch things up for
the Jayhawks second trip to Flori-
da in two weeks. Tis time they are
bound for Weston, Fla. to partici-
pate in the Sir Pizza Terrapin Chal-
lenge on Monday and Tuesday.
It was all pretty close in qualify-
ing score-wise and we just fgured
we would give somebody a chance,
see how they do, and go from
there, ONeil said. We will evalu-
ate again at the end of this tour-
nament, and if we need to change
again, we will.
Impressing ONeil and leading
the Jayhawks in last weeks Invi-
tational was Meghan Potee, who
ONeil claims is swinging as good
as she has ever seen. Potee fnished
T-18 at last weeks Invitational. An
equipment change seems to have
been the answer for Potee.
She got ftted for her clubs over
the break and got a new set so I
think thats a big part of why she is
hitting the ball so well because the
clubs ft her real well, ONeil said.
And its the best Ive ever seen her
hit it.
Te other two remaining in this
weeks lineup will be Tailand na-
tives Yawinpakorn Kawinpakorn
and Tanuttra Boonraksasat. Kaw-
inpakorn won two tournaments
last fall and Boonraksasat held the
teams lowest scoring average. Kaw-
inpakorn had a rough frst round
last week, but was quick to bounce
back fring 74 and 72 in the clos-
ing days.
Her [Kawinpakorn] putting
was of that frst round and nor-
mally thats her strength, said
ONeil. I think shell do real well
at this tournament and I think its
going to be similar to what she and
Phong [Boonraksasat] play on in
Tailand. Same kind of grass. Same
kind of layout.
Te struggles werent as minor
for Boonraksasat who fnished with
a 78 average for the tournament af-
ter holding the lowest round aver-
age for the Jayhawks at the conclu-
sion of the fall season at 74.4.
I think she made a few tweaks
to her swing over the break and I
think the frst tournament she was
still getting a little use to it, ONeil
said. I think her putting also kind
of got her and thats more of what
got her...she switched back to her
old putter this week so I think shell
get back on track.
Last weeks Florida State Match-
Up Invitational was packed with
competition, and although this
weeks tournament isnt as strong
by the numbers, ONeil still thinks
her players can make a strong fn-
ish in a strong feld.
Last week had a lot of high
ranked teams and this weeks prob-
ably for of a mid level competition
so its defnitely very reasonable for
us to play well and a good course
for us.
Te Sir Pizza Terrapin Challenge
feld of 16 teams will include eight
top-100 ranked teams (according
to GolfWeek) including Kansas at
number 67. North Carolina State is
the only team ranked in the top-50.
Last weeks feld included six top-50
teams and three top-100 teams in
addition to that, including Kansas.
But as big as numbers may be,
ONeils current focus is mentality.
Tey have the ability to really
perform well and to win every week
that they go out, ONeil said. I am
hoping that theyll start to see that
and believe it in themselves and not
just hear me saying it. We have to
go out and make the right decisions
and keep working hard.

Quite a few Kansas mens golf-
ers got tournament experience last
fall. Nine golfers played in at least
one tournament last season, which
is drawing attention to the lineup
Kansas head coach Jamie Bermel
will exact when the Jayhawks tee of
their 2013 season at the Wyoming
Desert Intercollegiate Tournament
in Palm Desert, Calif., tomorrow.
But as for the specifcs of the line-
up, thats still up in the air.
We havent decided on the last
two spots, but thats a good thing,
Bermel said. Were going to give
them a couple days when we get
out there and see how theyre play-
ing. Whatever fve we pick, we still
need four good scores, and thats
going to be critical.
Bermel did say for sure that Chris
Gilbert, Jackson Foth, and Shane
Gautier will be participating in this
weekends festivities. Tagging along
for the trip will be Alex Gutesha,
Dylan McClure, Ryley Haas, and
Bryce Brown. Two of the four will
be selected to round out the start-
ing fve. Kansas played around with
a variety of lineups in the fall, but
there havent been any indicators as
to when a solidifed lineup can be
expected. As for now, Bermels just
anxious for his teams frst test.
Were just excited to see where
we stand, Bermel said. I think
the guys are ready, the coaches are
excited and were excited just to go
out there and see where we stack up
against other team.
It was a rough fall for the Jay-
hawks, but thats part of the reason
Bermel is so anxious to get back on
the course.
Within the team, I think Ive
seen some guys make a lot of prog-
ress from where we started in Au-
gust and hopefully they continue
that progress in this frst event of
the spring.
Leading Kansas will be senior
Chris Gilbert who fnished as the
Jayhawks leading individual golfer
in the last four of the teams fve fall
tournaments. Gilbert racked up
two top-fve fnishes included a T-1
fnish at the Herb Wimberly Inter-
collegiate Tournament in October.
When he goes to a golf tourna-
ment hes expecting to win, which
is pretty cool to see for a kid who
has only won once, Kansas head
coach Jamie Bermel said. But thats
what winning can do for you and I
dont think thats changing because
its our frst event of the spring. Hes
played there before, he knows the
golf course and right now hes play-
ing well. Im excited to get out and
see what he can do, see if it carries
over from the fall to the spring.
Te tournament will be played
at the Classic Club in Palm Desert,
Calif., starting Friday with 18 holes
each day through Sunday. Kansas
is one of 17 participants: three of
them Big 12 foes including TCU,
Iowa State and Texas Tech. Region-
al opponents Nebraska and Wichita
State will also be in attendance.

Kansas 93-83 loss to Texas
was surprising, but not the most
shocking upset in Big 12 womens
basketball on Wednesday night,
not even in the state of Texas. Just
before the end of the Jayhawks set
back, No. 22 ranked Oklahoma
State fell to last-place TCU in Fort
When the Jayhawks met Texas
last month, the Longhorns were
without their two top scorers, ju-
nior Cassidy Fussell and sopho-
more Nneka Enempkali. Kansas
won that game by nearly 40.
Fussell and Enempkali com-
bined for 41 points in the 10-point
win on Wednesday.
Te 31 points scored by senior
guard Angel Goodrich and the 23
points scored by senior forward
Carolyn Davis were not enough
for the Jayhawks to match the
Longhorns scoring outburst of
93 points on 65 percent shooting
from the feld.
Senior Monica Engelman and
sophomore Chelsea Gardner
both fouled out afer scoring eight
points each. Engelman had scored
47 points over the last two games
for Kansas before the loss to Tex-
as. Gardner provided just two re-
bounds in 21 minutes played be-
fore leaving the game.
Te 83 points by Kansas is the
most they have scored on the road
in a non-overtime game all sea-
Te Jayhawks had fewer turn-
overs, more assists, and more
points in the paint, but still could
not keep up with Texas.
On Tuesday, before the Jay-
hawks lef for Austin, Kansas
coach Bonnie Henrickson said
that she didnt think she needed to
remind her team of the lack of en-
ergy they played with in the frst
half against TCU.
In the frst half on Wednesday
Kansas fell into another early hole,
and its defense struggled to stop
the Texas ofense in any way.
We dug ourselves in such a
hole in the frst half, (Texas) had
easy shots, which was inexcusable,
and they had us on our heels,
Henrickson said. We didnt play
well defensively and didnt show
any pop, which is really disap-
pointing. In this league you have
to be ready to play.
Te Longhorns shot 76 percent
in the frst half, and went into the
locker room with a 47-35 lead. In
the second half, Kansas attempted
to make a late run and scored 48
second half points, but Texas held
them of.
Its hard to see how exactly this
loss will afect the Jayhawks in
March, but the team seemed to
be on the bubble until defeating
Oklahoma last Sunday. Tis loss
could likely put them back on that
Kansas falls into a three way tie
for ffh in the Big 12 standings
with Oklahoma State and West
Virginia at 7-7. Texas has just
three wins against the Big 12 and
10 wins this season. Its never easy
to win on the road in the Big 12,
but Wednesdays loss is the worst
this season for the Jayhawks.
On Saturday the Jayhawks will
return to Allen Fieldhouse for an
opportunity to bounce back with
a win over Texas Tech.

Te Jayhawk tennis complex will
see two matches this weekend as
Kentucky and Drake visit Lawrence.
Coming of a road trip to South
Carolina, in which Kansas went 1-1,
the Jayhawks
will aim to keep
improving in
singles play while
maintaining its
high level of play
in doubles com-
An essential
cog in the archi-
tecture of the Kansas tennis team
is Paulina Los, who has won every
match she has played this spring
except the two she played against
a ranked Tulsa team. Los, a junior
from Poland, is a good indicator of
the teams success as the team has
only lost once in a 4-3 nail-biter
against No. 67 College of Charles-
ton, when she won both matches.
Another Jayhawk to look out for
is freshman Anastasija Trubica, who
went undefeated last weekend in
South Carolina including one of the
two wins in singles play on Saturday.
Trubica couples with Haley Fourni-
er in doubles play, and if the road
trip was any indicator they appear
to be hitting their midseason stride.
Te duo was 2-0 on the trip.
Notching a win against Kentucky
is not going to be easy; the Wildcats
are ranked No. 63 and are 5-2 with
a three-game winning streak on the
line Saturday.
For Kentucky, the player to watch
is freshman Nadia Ravita, who is 7-1
on the season in singles play. She is
a threat in doubles play with Junior
Caitlin McGraw, forming Ken-
tuckys No. 1 doubles duo, as they
have already notched wins against
top-ranked teams such as No. 55
Ohio State.
Both teams have something in
commonthey were unable to de-
feat Tulsa. Afer losing to Tulsa, Ken-
tucky is 3-0, while Kansas is 1-1.
On Sunday, the Drake Bulldogs
are on the schedule. Tis match
has the elements of a trap game for
the Jayhawks. While Drake is not
ranked and is not above .500 on the
season, they are not traveling to lose,
and with a quick turnaround from a
ranked team to an inferior team on
paper, there is potential for compla-
cency on the part of Kansas.
With the upper-class leadership
on the team coupled with the grit
shown throughout the season, Sun-
day should not be a letdown. Both
matches are set for noon.

Te Kansas mens track and feld
squad will compete in the Big 12
Indoor Championships this week-
end Saturday at Iowa State Univer-
sitys Lied Recreation Center.
While the men have won 27
Indoor Conference Champion-
ships, the last one came 30 years
ago. In order to rise to the top of
the league this weekend, they will
need a strong outing on the track.
Senior Kyle Clemons is looking to
become the frst KU athlete on the
mens side to win two titles at the
same conference championship.
He currently has the fastest time
of the season in the Big 12 in the
600 meters and the second fastest
in the 400 meters.
Junior Josh Munsch will look
to place in the 1,600 meters. He
currently has the sixth fastest mile
run in school history with a time
of 4:03.18. Te Jayhawks have a
strong core of pole vaulters who
will compete to score to valuable
points. Junior Alex Bishops sea-
son-best vault of 5.31 meters (17-5
f.) currently ranks 21st in the na-
tion, and sophomore Greg Lupton
is only a half-inch behind him.
Te mens distance medley re-
lay team of junior Nick Seckfort
(1200 meters), freshman Drew
Matthews (400 meters), junior
Brendan Soucie (800 meters) and
Munsch (1,600 meters) ran a sea-
son best time of 9:46.92 earlier this
season, which currently stands as
the tenth best time in the nation
this season.
Te Jayhawks have a number
of athletes who will look to earn a
spot in the NCAA Indoor Cham-
pionships, which is just two weeks
away. Te men will send a total
of 24 athletes to the conference
championships, led by just two se-
niors, Clemons and Josh Baden.
Te men will have a chance to
have an individual win an event at
the indoor conference champion-
ship for the frst time since 2010.
Te meet is all day this Friday and
Saturday on the campus of Iowa
State University in Ames, Iowa.

game-tying three-pointer at the
end of regulation propels Kansas
to its third NCAA title and fifth
national championship overall.

Feb., 25, 2012: With the Bor-
der War appearing to be on hold
for the near future, Kansas 87-86
overtime victory over Missouri
proved to be one of the great-
est games in the rivalries history
while also adding to the lore of
the Fieldhouse. The Jayhawks
overcame a 19-point second half
deficit to force overtime and the
eventual victory.


Tom Keegan has been the
Sports Editor at the Lawrence
Journal-World since 2005. Hes
seen countless baseball cathe-
drals, stepped on footballs hal-
lowed ground and placed his
feet on some of the oldest hard-
wood in this country.
In his time as a sports journal-
ist, however, the only place thats
compared to Allen Fieldhouse is
Indianas Assembly Hall when
Bob Knight led the Hoosiers to
several national titles.
Kansas was always domi-
nant, but until you get here you
dont realize how amazing that
two-hour game atmosphere is,
Keegan said. The place is so in-
timate. People are just so into it.
I havent been to Cameron In-
door Stadium, but the people
Ive talked to say that Allen
Fieldhouse is better.
The Jayhawks had a cel-
ebration similar to the one this
weekend for the 1952 national
championship team last year,
but this one seems different.
Its the 25th anniversary of
the 88 team, but in todays world
you know every day where Dan-
ny Manning is and Chris Piper
is still around so I dont think
a 25 year anniversary is as that
big of deal as it would have been
for the 52 team because were
constantly writing about those
guys, Keegan said.
In the time frame since Kan-
sas won that national title the
Jayhawks only have had three
coaches: Larry Brown, Roy Wil-
iams and Bill Self.
And with many of the na-
tional powerhouses missing on
coaches in that time frame its
pretty impressive for the Kan-
sas basketball machine to move
along steadily.
What I think seperates
Kansas from every other pro-
gram in the country is youve
got three back-to-back-to-back
long-tenured coaches who each
have done amazing things and
no other program can say that,
Keegan said.
For Keegan he ranks the
coaches at Bill Self, Roy Wil-
liams and Larry Brown in that
He discussed how after the
amazing run Williams had, Self
managed to elevate the Jayhawk
program to an even higher level,
including the Big 12 conference
title streak that is currently at
eight seasons.
Who would have thought
about that to upgrade what Roy
Williams did, Keegan said.

Scot Pollard has a problem
when he commentates Kansas
basketball games for Channel 6
in Lawrence. His body doesnt
fully understand that it doesnt
play for the Jayhawks anymore.
As Pollard prepares to call
the action hes stimulated by
the sights and sounds around
him. The roaring band gets his
adrenaline pumping, the ca-
pacity crowd gets his fingers
twitching and by the time the
introduction video plays, hes
sweating all over.
My body still thinks its time
to go, Pollard said. The hardest
thing for me is to not look like a
mess on camera. Im getting bet-
ter at that.
Its not that Pollard isnt ready
to be retired, he just cant help it.
The venue brings it out in him.
It has ever since his first trip to
Lawrence back in high school.
The big man was set to play
at Arizona until witnessing Late
Night in the Phog. He realized
he found something more spe-
When I came here it was just
overwhelming how crazy the
fans were about Kansas basket-
ball, Pollard said. That was
a big deal to me. I committed
right on the spot.
With the Jayhawks celebrat-
ing 115 years as a program, Pol-
lard is just proud to be a part of
the tradition.
No one else has got 115 years
to celebrate, Pollard said. That
in itself is very special just to say
Yeah, 115 years of Kansas bas-
ketball. How long have you been
And he certainly hasnt for-
gotten what it means to be a
part of that tradition. Even dur-
ing Pollards 11-year NBA ca-
reer he kept close to his Kansas
roots and other Jayhawks in the
league. Or as Pollard puts it: his
That family was never closer
than when it came to celebrate
the best Kansas basketball play-
ers of all time in the Legends of
the Phog game last season.
The Legends game will al-
ways be the last time I play bas-
ketball, Pollard said. That was
the best way I could go out as
a player. On my home floor in
college in the place that created
my NBA career for me.
It sums up the tradition of
Kansas basketball better than
anything else can. Pollard still
cant stay away from it and his
body isnt ready to leave it.
Still he knows the team, the
history and the customs wont
be going anywhere.
Kansas basketball is in great
hands, Pollard said. Everybody
knows that. Bill Self is the best
coach in college basketball right
now. Theres not a better guy at
winning games when its time to
win games.

115 YEARS fRom PAGE 1B

enough for fans to remember that
if it was off, Kansas would no lon-
ger be in control of its quest for a
ninth straight Big 12 title. It fell
quick enough that there wasnt
time to process what that meant.
There wasnt time to celebrate;
Oklahoma State still had
enough time to create a fateful
field goal of its own and there
was no doubt the ball was go-
ing back to Brown.
But sometimes, like when Kan-
sas avenged its home loss to OSU
from three weeks ago, you have to
win on defense no matter how big
of a shot you just made.
And whom else would it be but
Travis Releford coming up with a
steal to seal a Kansas victory?
Sometimes, you just need a lit-
tle extra time to finish the job.

Garlon Green, forward
He had 20
points when the
Horned Frogs de-
feated Kansas in
early February on
7-13 shooting.
The senior is only
6-foot-7, so if he
starts to heat up
again, Bill Self
could let defensive specialist Travis Rel-
eford have a turn to guard him. Green
also led TCU in scoring in its last game
Feb. 19 against Texas, but he needs to be
more active on the glass for the Horned
Frogs to pull off the upset tonight.
(10-16, 1-12)
Anderson joins Green as the only two players to
start every game this season, and he leads TCU
in scoring with 11.2 points per game. Since being
held to eight points against the Jayhawks earlier
this month, Anderson has scored in double fgures
in four straight games. He is in the top 10 in the
Big 12 in both assists and steals.


The senior doesnt bring much of a scoring
threat to the table, but his 44 assists show he
is capable of helping Anderson distribute the ball
across the foor. His biggest contributions will
probably come on defense, where hes totaled 16
blocks and 24 steals, both of which rank second
on the team. He did reach 10 points in the frst
game against Kansas.


One of only two Horned Frogs to start every
game this season, Green is second on the team
with 10.2 points per game, including a 20-point
outing against Kansas in Fort Worth on Feb. 6. But
hes scored in single digits in three of the past
four games, shooting 12-47.


Crossland grabbed 15 rebounds in the frst
meeting this season between the schools and
contributed eight points. He is second on the team
with 5.9 rebounds per game. Crossland splits
starts with Devonta Abron and Adrick McKinney,
but hes the least likely one to be on the court in
a tight game. The senior shoots only 45 percent
from the free throw line.


Although not known for being a scorer, Abrons
12 points against Oklahoma earlier this month
was only one point shy of trying his career high.
But of all Horned Frogs with at least 100 shot at-
tempts on the season, Abrons 55 percent shoot-
ing is the best. He also leads the team with 19

(22-4, 10-3)
For the frst time in weeks, Johnson has shown
more aggressiveness around the rim while also
being passive when Naadir Tharpe needs to take
over the game. Johnson is not all the way back to
his original form from earlier in the season, but
hes defnitely more comfortable and continues to
to stay humble. Johnson struggled in the last game
going three of 12 with only eight points in 31 min-
utes of play against the Horned Frogs on Feb. 6.

What else is there to say about McLemore? The
impressive freshman pulled off a 360 dunk to per-
fection against Texas. He wore a chicken head in
the Harlem Shake video. And now hes a contender
for Big 12 Player of the Year. The only place for im-
provement is for him to be more agressive, and if
he can learn to dribble a little better, hell be even
more lethal. At the moment, McLemore is staying
ahead of Danny Mannings pace for freshman re-
cord with his 16.7 ppg.


Relefords defense continues to be an ultimate
glue guy for this team helping with offensive and
defensive rebounding for the Jayhawks. Releford
remains one of the staple players for this team, and
his ability to knock down open threes at the mo-
ment contributes to his overall success. He scored
a team-high 15 points against Texas. Releford is
shooting 56.8 percent the last six games.


Freshman forward Perry Ellis got the start over
Young the last time these two teams faced off, but
dont expect that to be the case this time. Young
continues to be an important energy guy for the
Jayhawks and will be a vital part of Kansas cruis-
ing to a victory against TCU. Youngs role on the
team continues to change throughout year, and he
appears to be going with the fow for the most part.
Expect him to keep trucking along.


With his two blocks on Saturday against Texas,
Withey broke the Big 12 career blocks record of
former Longhorns Chris Mihim. Withey played 33
minutes in the last meeting in Forth Worth with 12
points and eight rebounds. Withey struggled with
the Horned Frogs smaller players, but it might
have been a bad game like everyone else that day.
At this point, Withey is marching closer to All-
American status, and theres no sign of stopping.
Withey leads the Big 12 and is third nationally with
4 blocked shots per game.

Kansas seeks revenge Saturday
Jayhawks have a chance for redemption
CoUNtDowN to tIPoff
Kansas 74, tCU 50
TCU hasnt won a conference game
since beating Kansas, which remains
its only conference win of the season. Its
a stretch to say the Horned Frogs could
replicate its feat and sweep the season
series against Kansas, especially since
the Jayhawks have won two of their last
three games by more than 20 points. The
fact that its noteworthy that the Horned
Frogs last loss to Texas, which was only
their second conference loss, by single
digits sums up the programs state.
Can the Horned Frogs pull off
the upset again?
TCU held Kansas to 13 points in the
frst half when the two schools frst met
on Feb. 6. But even then, the Horned
Frogs only won by seven points because
they really didnt play that much better
than Kansas. Logic suggests that the
Horned Frogs couldnt coerce Kansas into
playing that bad of a frst half again. But
TCU already pulled off the upset once,
and it could be even more focused to
play now that it gets an opportunity to
knock off Kansas in Allen Fieldhouse.
Kansas continues to play like
they did last week against Texas
and Kansas State. Te fuidity and
coolness the Jayhawks played with
in those games is the amount of
confdence needed for Kansas to
make a deep run in March. As long
as Johnson and Tarpe both take
control of this team, theres a good
chance for Kansas to be better the
next few weeks.
Kansas doubts itself. The Jayhawks
got open looks at the basket that they
routinely missed during their frst loss
to the Horned Frogs, and their offensive
struggles seemed to become more con-
tagious as the game wore on. If Kansas
starts slowly again offensively, it needs
to remember that its style of basketball
has helped it win 21 games so far this
season. With Releford and McLemore,
Kansas has the weapons to create easy
offense through transition buckets.
Kansas will be looking for some se-
rious revenge after losing to the 238th
ranked team in the country. At this point,
it appears the game in Forth Worth was
an anomoly including one of the worst
halves of basketball in Kansas history.
Still, the Jayhawks have superior talent
to the Horned Frogs and on paper it ap-
pears they should be able to handle this
team when the game is in Allen Field-
house this time.
Perry Ellis, forward
Te freshman
from Wichita
has shown fash-
es of brilliance,
but theres been
very few games
where hes got
extensive min-
utes. If Kansas
gets out to a
major lead,
look for Ellis to be inserted into the
lineup where he can show of what
hes been able to do in practice. El-
lis is a solid player who evenutally
will be a major contributor for the
Jayhawks. Look for him to possibly
play 10 or 15 minutes more than
his alloted time.
Will The Jayhawks lose
against the Horned Frogs?
No. Kansas is a top 10 in the
country that played its worst game
of the season against TCU this year.
Tey will come out and play with
intensity and emotion, and possi-
bily some revenge. Plus, this being
TCUs frst trip to the Fieldhouse in
a long time has to have some shock
