New forensic auditor
position created to
increase transparency
BY STEPHEN MONTEMAYOR
[email protected]
Brenda Muirhead is careful
when discussing her new job
title, forensic auditor.
For one, she says, the term
evokes “C.S.I.” comparisons and
she’s quick to preface that Kansas
Athletics — the department she
is tasked with analyzing — is not
a crime scene.
“I’m very used to people tak-
ing the word ‘auditor’ and being
afraid of that and kind of being
shut down to that,” she said. “So
part of my job is to educate peo-
ple on what I do and what I can
do for you.”
Muirhead began the job Sept.
13 — three days after leaving
the Legislative Post Audit, the
audit agency of the Kansas gov-
ernment. Chancellor Bernadette
Gray-Little created the posi-
tion as one of her steps toward
increasing transparency of the
Athletics Department after a year
of unsavory headlines.
“I think it’s a very high stan-
dard to have and I think it’s a
good one,” said Gary Scherrer,
chair of the Kansas Board of
Regents. Scherrer was receptive
of the chancellor’s changes to the
department in her presentation
to the board in September.
The position will be funded
by the department but Muirhead
will report to Don Holland, the
director of Internal Audit, who
then reports to the chancellor.
Holland said the department is
the first of Muirhead’s projects as
forensic auditor and is expected
to span about a year, after which
her focus will turn to other areas
on campus.
Muirhead’s job description has
her performing fraud investiga-
tions and data analytics to iden-
tify correlations or patterns in
large fields of data. Holland said
what sets forensic auditing apart
from other positions in the field

City project aims to
clear game-day trafc
BY GARTH SEARS
[email protected]
Game days at Memorial Stadium
are filled with traditions: tailgat-
ing, waving the wheat, parties and
bumper-to-bumper traffic.
With around 50,000 people
descending on Memorial Stadium
each home game, traffic jams are
inevitable.
“It’s beyond the capacity of any
road system,” city engineer Shoeb
Uddin said. “That’s just the reality
of it.”
But the city is starting a $500,000
project this fall that will help allevi-
ate game day traffic jams and allow
the city to respond to traffic issues
quicker in problem areas.
The city will be installing fiber-
optic cable along Sixth Street and
Iowa Street and making the street
lights there remote-controlled by
the end of March.
On Sixth Street, the cable will
start at Massachusetts Street and
go west to Iowa Street. There, the
cable turns south, and every light
on Iowa Street between Sixth and
23rd streets will be changed, too. In
all, about a dozen lights will become
remote-controlled.
When there is an accident or a
major change from normal traffic
– 50,000 people attending a foot-
ball game, for instance – the city
will adjust the timers on the traffic
lights to decrease congestion.
Right now, the only way for the
city to adjust the timing of a light
is to send someone to change the
timer at the intersection. After the
project, the city will be able to con-
trol those lights from anywhere,
even from an engineer’s home late
at night.
There will initially be six cameras
installed at some of the intersec-
tions so the city can monitor the
traffic in real time.
“We can monitor those from our
office on a large screen on the wall,”
Uddin said. There won’t, however,
be someone sitting at a desk con-
stantly watching and adjusting traf-
fic.
After games at Memorial
Stadium, 50,000 people leave in all
directions. The campus cradles the
stadium all along the south, making
traffic escape that way difficult.
Many cars move southwest with
the eventual goal of getting to Iowa
Street. For those cars, the light at
15th and Iowa streets would be
remote-controlled.
Traffic can also move north,
where a large portion of the crowd
walks and parks for a game. The
“state streets” — Mississippi, Illinois,
Alabama, Maine and Missouri
streets — are the only direct path
for someone at the stadium to get
to Ninth Street for escape. For those
cars, the lights further north along
Sixth Street and the one at Ninth
and Iowa streets would be remote-
controlled.

It’s a sad day for some college
students when they must trade in
their beloved wardrobe of T-shirts
and tennis shoes for one of fancy
suits and leather shoes. The price
tag attached to making the switch
renders the process even more
painful. With the average cost
of today’s professional wardrobe
costing several hundred dollars,
entering the real world has the
potential to put a giant hole in the
pockets of young professionals.
This cost is one of the factors that
pushed Delta Epsilon Iota to host
a professional clothing drive at the
University.
“On average a wardrobe can
cost about $100 to $150,” said Erin
Wolfram, staff adviser of Delta
Epsilon Iota, a career-focused
honor society. “That’s minimal
though, a lot of times they can be
at an upwards of $300.”
The drive began Oct. 1 and runs
throughout the month of October.
Donations will be accepted at eight
locations on campus.
“We’re looking to collect dif-
ferent types of business attire,”
said Nate Phillips, DEI president.
“Ties, jackets, slacks — we’re open
to pretty much all types of profes-
sional clothing except shoes.”
DEI came up with the idea for
the drive after hearing about a
similar program at Kansas State
University. The idea is to use
the clothing collected to open a
professional clothing closet next
semester in the University Career
Center Offices in room 110 of the
Burge Union.
“With the closet we’ll make an
inventory of everything that we’ve
collected and then organize it by
type and size,” Phillips said. “If a
student comes in and finds some-
thing that they can use, it’s theirs
to keep.”
When the closet opens next
semester, it will be staffed by
UCC workers and DEI vol-
unteers and allow students to
come in during the week and
pick a total of five clothing
items at a time.
“We’re going to have the closet
open during our normal 9 to 5
hours throughout the week but
then have extended hours before
business fairs and other events,”
Wolfram said.
Members of DEI hope that the
professional clothing closet will
help make finding a job in today’s
economy a bit easier for KU stu-
dents.
“The way you dress is a large
part of making a good impression
during an interview to land a job,”
Phillips said. “Everyone should
have the opportunity to make that
strong first impression.”
The Career Center will continue
collecting donations after the end
of the October drive.

The organization
wants more KU help
in annual campaign
BY STEPHEN GRAY
[email protected]
Douglas County United Way
representatives had an unexpected
message for students at their KU
kickoff campaign last Friday: Beat
Mizzou.
As part of the campaign’s goal
to raise $285,000 this year at the
University, the KU division of
United Way has organized a T-shirt
sale challenge with its contacts at
the University of Missouri and
Kansas State University.
Beverly Billings, the 2010 cam-
paign chairwoman for the United
Way of Douglas County, said she
hopes that the University will come
out with renewed enthusiasm to
donate after being soundly out-
raised by the Missouri division last
year.
“These are two great causes,”
Billings said. “Beating our compet-
itors and raising money for United
Way.”
The money that is made from
the challenge and the overall
campaign will go to 24 nonprofit
partner organizations throughout
Douglas County. These organiza-
tions include the American Red
Cross, the Boys and Girls Club and
Meals On Wheels. Last year, the
United Way helped provide ser-
vices to more than 60,000 people
in the county.
In addition to raising $285,000
this year, the KU division of the
United Way has a second main goal
of increasing participation in the
campaign. Last year, the University
was second-to-last among Big 12
universities with a 14 percent par-
ticipation rate.
While that percentage is not
reflective of the total amount
donated last year, organizers still
would like to see it improve to at
least 25 percent.
Mary Ellen Kondrat, dean of
the School of Social Welfare and
chairwoman of the KU United Way
Committee, said sometimes people
don’t give because they mistak-
enly believe that a small contribu-
tion won’t make a difference. The
United Way is trying to emphasize
that this isn’t the case.
“Every little bit adds up, every
donation is significant and impor-
tant,” Kondrat
said.
Many stu-
dents play
an important
role in the KU
United Way
campaign each
year. Some par-
ticipate by vol-
unteering with
the 24 partner
organi zat i ons
and others take part in the Rock
Chalk Revue performance in the
spring. The annual revue raised
more than $45,000 for United Way
last year.
Alek Joyce, a freshman from
Lawrence and a United Way vol-
unteer, said he’s always tried to get
involved in the community. He
has worked with several of United
Way’s partner agencies in the
past, including the Boy Scouts of
America and Ballard Community
Services.
“It’s great now to be able to
help the supporter of all of these
Lawrence groups,” Joyce said.
T h r o u g h
vol unt eeri ng
and donating
to charitable
c a mp a i g n s
like United
Way, Kondrat
said students
can learn the
importance of
being respon-
sible for their
communities.
“In addition to preparing stu-
dents for jobs,” Kondrat said, “we
also hope that a KU education will
help them become good citizens.”

Public Safety Office assistant chief
of police, said police change many
normal streets to two-lane, one-way
streets to help clear out the mess.
While the game crowd is leaving,
a car cannot drive toward the sta-
dium.
Eric Thibeault, a senior from
Hutchinson whose house is at Illinois
and 10th streets, said it’s impossible
to drive to or from his house during
that time.
“Traffic can be bumper-to-bum-
per an hour after the game,” he said.
There are also officers posted at
dozens of intersections near the sta-
dium to help traffic along and ensure
pedestrian safety.
Uddin stressed that the city’s new
system would not make the football
traffic jams go away, and it’s not
designed to replace the system the
University already has for control-
ling crowds. But it will help clear out
traffic quicker.
The project should be done by
March, barring another harsh winter
like last year, Uddin said. If it goes
well, the city would try to expand
the system to 23rd Street, which
would affect basketball game days
even more than the proposed light
upgrades.
The city and state are splitting the
cost of the current project, which
will begin the end of this month or
the beginning of November. Uddin
said an expansion to 23rd Street
would require more state funding,
but he didn’t know how much.

Sarah Hicks, Bennington junior (right), receives a free T-shirt fromVictoria Ragan, a freshman fromOverland Park (middle), after a donation to
the UnitedWay Friday afternoon outside the Union. Beverly Smith, Billings chairwoman, 2010 UnitedWay Campaign (left) took donations from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. outside the Union, where students were given free hot dogs, andT-shirts for their contribution. The UnitedWay’s goal this
year is to receive $285,000 worth of donations fromthe University.
United Way needs student donors
is that it looks at the transac-
tion level detail and works its way
up. Muirhead also will investigate
whistleblower claims reporting
improper or inappropriate activi-
ties.
But before she can dive into
data, relationships must be estab-
lished with the department.
“You’ve got to build those bridg-
es first,” Muirhead said.
Holland said the department
has been inviting thus far. He said
the importance of getting to know
those within the department is
that it’s not the people behind
the system who are important but
instead the few who think they are
above it.
“What we have experienced
here is collusion,” Holland said.
“What we have experienced here
is a group of people working
together and very few internal
controls would catch something
like that.”
Internal audit will not be walk-
ing into the Athletics Department
with the attitude that Athletics is
“all screwed up,” Holland said.
However, there will be a consid-
erable amount of walking into the
department.
“I will not be sitting over in
Strong Hall making judgments
about how they do things over
there without being complete-
ly enthralled in their work,”
Muirhead said.
Holland said internal audit tra-
ditionally had not been part of
the department because it already
has a spotlight on it. He cred-
its Chancellor Gray-Little for the
creation of Muirhead’s position
to increase transparency of the
department.
“The chancellor wants that
assurance and she will get it,”
Holland said.
In a Board of Regents meet-
ing on Sept. 14, Gray-Little pre-
sented changes she’s made to
restore confidence in the Athletics
Department. Muirhead’s position
was one of those acts, as was
removing the athletics director as
chair of Athletics’ board of direc-
tors.
A task force also reviewed the
priority points system for seating
at basketball and football games.
Now fans can view how many
points occupants of seats around
them have.
“I think the chancellor’s deter-
mined to ensure that we oper-
ate in a world of transparency,”
Jill Jess, associate director for
University Relations, said. “We are
a public institution and we don’t
have secrets.”

LOS ANGELES — After several
years of delays that have frustrated
eager fans, moviegoers might soon
be able to return to Middle-earth.
Warner Bros., its subsidiary New
Line Cinema and partner Metro-
Goldwyn-Mayer appear to be close
to green-lighting the hugely antici-
pated two-part "Lord of the Rings"
prequel "The Hobbit," according
to several people familiar with the
matter who spoke on condition of
anonymity because they were not
authorized to discuss it publicly.
Barring a last-minute glitch,
production could begin in mid-
January so that the first of the
two movies would be ready for a
holiday 2012 release, according to
people close to the project. The sec-
ond film is planned for a December
2013 opening. If production doesn't
begin by the first quarter of next
year, the people said, "The Hobbit"
will miss its planned release dates
and likely will have to once again
be delayed.
The one remaining hurdle is
getting an official go-ahead from
MGM, which for more than a year
has been virtually out of cash and
whose debt holders have been try-
ing to decide upon a plan for reor-
ganization. Under a long-standing
agreement, MGM owns half the
rights and controls international
distribution. MGM is eager to co-
finance the films, people close to
the situation said, and could give
Warner Bros. the official OK in the
next few days.
The studio partners also have
nearly finalized a deal with direc-
tor, producer and co-writer Peter
Jackson to make the two movies
and have resolved most other key
issues that have long held up the
project, including those related to
underlying rights from the estate
of author J.R.R. Tolkien. Jackson
has long planned to shoot the
movies in his home country of
New Zealand, but this week he ran
afoul of various performer unions,
including the Screen Actors Guild,
which are advising their members
not to work on what they allege
is a non-union production. One
person close to the situation said
that dispute also is close to being
resolved, further clearing the way
for a green-light.
Jackson took on directing duties
after "Pan's Labyrinth" director
Guillermo del Toro, who had been
set to handle the job, backed out
earlier this year because of the
ongoing delays.
The two "Hobbit" films, which
will be shot together, are expected
to cost close to $500 million to
produce.
Warner and New Line, which
produced the blockbuster "Lord
of the Rings" trilogy and control
domestic distribution for "Hobbit,"
are ready to commit their half of
the money, said people familiar
with the matter.
Negotiations between MGM and
Warner are at a very tenuous stage.
MGM needs to reach agreement
among its more than 100 debt own-
ers, which control the future of
the studio. MGM's creditors are
scrambling to finalize a reorganiza-
tion plan through which Spyglass
Entertainment chiefs Gary Barber
and Roger Birnbaum are expected
to take over management.

MUSIc
Nelson refects on 25
years helping farmers
Mcclatchy-tribune
MILWAUKEE — Farm Aid
founder Willie Nelson kicked off
a day of music at Miller Park in
Milwaukee reflecting on 25 years
of concerts to help the American
farmer.
"Twenty-five years you've been
doing this," Nelson said, wearing
a cowboy hat and as soft-spoken
as ever. "We've had thousands of
artists, millions of people who
have given their time and their
money for the family farmer.
What have we done in 25 years?
Well, we're still here. If we had it
all worked out we wouldn't have
to be here again."
The folks who run Miller Park
would sure like to play host to
another Milwaukee Brewers base-
ball playoff game. But Saturday,
they got the next best thing: a
marathon concert that brings the
farm to the city and more than
30,000 fans to the ballpark for
the 25th anniversary edition of
Farm Aid.
"It's basically a doubleheader,"
Jason Hartlund, vice president of
Brewers Enterprises, said about
the length and breadth of the
concert.
The doors have opened, the
first performers have hit the stage
— Nelson opened the show by
singing the Lord's Prayer — and it
all goes until around 11 p.m.
Miller Park is decked out in all
its concert glory, with a 120-foot-
long stage set in center field, 7,500
seats arrayed on portable flooring
in the outfield and two sound
and light towers flanking the
infield. Crowds were anticipat-
ing scorching music from Farm
Aid founders Nelson, Neil Young
and John Mellencamp, along with
Dave Matthews, a board mem-
ber of the charity. The eclectic
lineup includes Kenny Chesney,
Jason Mraz, Norah Jones, Jamey
Johnson, Jeff Tweedy and The
BoDeans.
Farm Aid organizers were
eager to bring their message and
their music to a big city and a big
stadium for its 25th anniversary
show.

W
hile the American
media was distracted
with stories of
inappropriate televangelists,
UFO conspiracies, and an all-out
war between Katy Perry and
Sesame Street, something more
important was happening in the
international community.
On Sept. 20, world leaders met
in New York City to discuss the
Millennium Development Goals.
While progress has been made
to combat poverty and curb the
spread of diseases
much more needs to
be done.
Unfortunately
though, without a
major revamping of
the United States’
aid structure, we will
fall far short of our
potential to fx these
social problems.
Te Millennium
Development Goals
were proposed at
the United Nations in 2000. Tey
include seven specifc goals to be
accomplished by 2015 and require
the cooperation of the world’s
main players. As Bono wrote in an
op-ed for Te New York Times,
“Te M.D.G.’s are possibly the most
visionary deal that most people
have never heard of.”
In almost all accounts, the
last ten years have seen great
progress thanks to the Millennium
Development Goals.
As the United Nations reports,
the amount of new AIDS cases
has declined from 2.3 million
in 2001 to 1.9 million in 2008.
Malaria deaths have decreased
by 90 percent. Not to mention
the tremendous improvements
in elementary enrollment and
economic
development in
African countries.
Many of the
University’s student
groups understand
the need for the
United States to
contribute its share
to global problems.
Take, for instance,
Oxfam KU,
which advocates
on behalf of the
impoverished.
“At frst glace it many not
seem like those of us here in
Lawrence are afected by whether
or not those in poverty are given
assistance, but if you take a closer
look, the relationship is clear,” said
Meredith Walrafen, co-president of
Oxfam on campus.
America’s contribution could,
and should, be greater to this noble
and worthy cause.
Foreign aid accounts for less
than one percent of our federal
budget while military spending
is 20 percent. But with 19 million
Americans unemployed and
the economy in near shambles,
increasing the foreign aid budget is
a tough sell, to say the least.
Rather than simply throwing
more money that we don’t have at
the problem, the United States can
get smarter with the dollars we do
give.
As President Obama stated in
his address to the United Nations
during the summit, “We must be
more selective and focus our eforts
where we have the best partners
and where we can have the greatest
impact.”
Tus far, the Obama
administration has failed at this
endeavor.
If you tried to make an
organization chart of how foreign
aid is given, you’d get more of a
headache than if you tried to follow
Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston’s
romance (I wouldn’t recommend
doing either).
Not only are there too many
agencies doing one job, but very
few people in Washington seem
to care about the most important
agency, the U.S. Agency for
International Development.
USAID went nearly all of 2009
without an administrator and to
this day, many of its top positions
remain unflled.
Until we streamline our aid
process and make it a priority, the
U.S. can’t say that we did all we
could.
Adams is an Overland Park
junior in international studies
and political science.
I
t is obvious that the recent
setback within the Senate to
repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell”
is only prolonging the inevitable.
Overturning the clearly misguided
military policy continues to be
more of a matter of when than if.
Under the bogus
policy currently in
place, the military is
not allowed to ques-
tion a servicemember’s
sexual orientation and
gays and lesbians can
serve in the military,
just as long as they
keep it a secret. Tus
far 13,000 qualifed
servicemembers have
been wrongly discharged for sim-
ply not hiding their identity.
So basically, millions of taxpayer
dollars are being wasted training
these servicemembers when they
are just going to be wrongfully
discharged because it was discov-
ered whom they choose to have
sex with.
It has been 17 years since “don’t
ask, don’t tell” has gone into efect
and recent polls show that the
public overwhelmingly supports
the allowance of gays and lesbians
openly serving in the military.
According to a Gallup poll in
May, 70 percent of Americans
favor the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t
tell,” which includes 60 percent of
Republicans,
but sadly these
number were ill-
represented on
Sept. 21, when
the issue came
up for a vote.
While 56
Democrats in
the Senate voted
for the repeal of
the policy, the
public’s opinion was obviously not
relayed to the 40 Senate Repub-
licans and two Democrats from
Arkansas who voted against the
policy change.
Ultimately, the Republicans
voted to delay what will one day be
a profound change in this country’s
core institution. Friction is the
name of the game when contro-
versial policies are challenged, but
fear-mongers need to accept that
it is unconstitutional to limit the
rights of gays and lesbians who
choose to fght for their country in
the U.S. Armed Forces.
Right now, there are at least
25 nations that allow gays and
lesbians to openly serve in their
militaries. U.S. allies, Australia
and Israel, as well as the nations
of, Canada, Czech Republic, Italy,
France and Germany, are just
several that make the list.
While these nations seems to
have a grasp on what is right, the
U.S. is the only country that has
this in-between policy that says
you can be gay and serve, but hide
this part of yourself from everyone.
In the end, there is absolutely no
acceptable reason to deny enlisted
men and women the right to their
freedom of speech or personal
identity when it involves their
sexual orientation.

Gain procrastinating skills at
upcoming seminar ... maybe
HuMOr
W
ith the semester
in full swing, big
papers and tests
are starting to fll everybody’s
schedules. As a result, students
are fnding it harder and harder
to successfully procrastinate. If
you fnd that your homework
keeps getting done on time,
you may need help from a
procrastination expert such as
yours truly.
I’m a highly experienced,
award-winning procrastinator,
well-versed in every method
and form of procrastination
possible. In fact, a few years ago
I won a scholarship from the
Procrastinator’s Association of
America (though I have yet to
receive a check). I continue to
procrastinate to this very day,
most recently on this column,
which is currently being written
two days afer its deadline.
I seek to spread my gif to
as many people as possible.
Tat’s why I’m starting a series
of prohibitively expensive,
inconveniently scheduled
seminars that will be coming to
a hotel airport not-particularly-
near you.
Puttin’ It Of with Alex
Nichols will teach you the basics
of not doing whatever it is you’re
supposed to do. Te seminar
kicks of with a hastily prepared,
incomplete presentation. In
it, I reveal the Tree Ds of
Procrastination:
*Delay doing it
*Deny that it needs to be
done
*Don’t ever do it
Tis is the cornerstone of
my program, which will help
YOU become a less efcient
procrastinator (should I ever
actually end up building around
that cornerstone).
Te presentation continues
with a bunch of shoddy,
meaningless pie charts and bar
graphs disguised as important
information. And thanks to my
uncanny procrastination skills,
you’ll hardly be able to tell I
threw it together at three o’clock
that morning!
Afer my presentation, the
seminar breaks out into small
group sessions, including:
*Te Refresh Button and You:
Learn how refreshing a blog or
message board over and over
again can help you kill hours of
would-be productivity.
*Make It Nap-pen: You don’t
need to be tired to take a nap.
Tis workshop teaches you how
to snooze your way to better
procrastination.
*Te Magic of Baby Steps:
Discover how you can justify
opening Word, typing your
name and pressing enter as
three separate benchmarks in
your work, with each earning
you a three-hour break.
Lunch will be catered by
whatever sandwich joint is
closest to the hotel. Unless,
of course, I never get around
to calling the sandwich joint,
which is extremely possible,
since I’m the master of
procrastination.
Afer lunch, we’ll have to
improvise, since I have nothing
else planned. Um, maybe
some role playing exercises?
Yeah, that’s good. Role playing
exercises. We’ll do some of
those. We’ll come up with some
scenarios, such as a friend peer-
pressuring you into doing your
work, and you’ll fgure out how
to say “NO!” and go play video
games instead. At the end of the
day I’ll hand out complimentary
gif bags comprised entirely of
stuf I found under my bed and
in my closet.
Go to
alexnicholsprocrastination.biz
TODAY and sign up for the
seminar that will change your
life ... eventually. Actually, don’t
go there today, I haven’t bought
that domain name yet. Go there
in like a week or two. Or maybe
a month. I have a lot of other
stuf to do frst. Like fnish this

Tis year’s freshmen are the
most academically talented class
in University of Kansas history,
with the highest average GPA and
ACT scores of any class.
The class of 2014 has an aver-
age ACT composite score of 24.9,
in contrast to the national average
of 22.1. The average high school
GPA for the freshman is a 3.48.
“There was some strategy
behind our recruitment process,”
said Lisa Pinamonti Kress, direc-
tor of the Office of Admissions
and Scholarships. “We have been
developing a targeted, personal-
ized communication approach
with students who fall into a cer-
tain ACT range.”
Pinamonti Kress said while
there was no additional funding
added to the scholarship bud-
get, the Office of Admissions did
increase recruiting, especially
during the spring semester.
“If a student has visited campus
or shown interest in the University
but hasn’t made an enrollment
deposit, we will really make an
initiative,” said Pinamonti Kress.
“We sent personalized notes and
made personal phone calls to
express our interest in the stu-
dent.”
Sam Ho, a freshman from
Topeka, was first noticed by the
University after he sent in his
initial application.
Ho scored a perfect ACT score
of 36 and a perfect SAT score of
2400.
“The experience for KU pretty
much sealed the deal for me,”
Ho said. “Everywhere else I was
accepted and visited, I just felt
like I would be going to school. At
KU, I felt like I would actually be
getting a college experience.”
Ho was offered the Perfect
Achievement Scholarship, which
includes full tuition and room and
board. He is one of nine freshmen
who have a perfect ACT score.
The enrollment of the fresh-
man class has not increased in
size from the year before, but
more than one third of the class
of 2014 scored higher than a 27
on the ACT. The “high-ability
recruiting” score
range for KU is
27 to 36.
“When stu-
dents take their
ACT, they can
rank KU on
their list of
schools they
are interested
in,” Pinamonti
Kress said. “We
look at these lists and target those
students.”
John Powell, a freshman from
Topeka, said he was sent person-
alized notes from the University
after submitting his ACT score
of 34. Retention and graduation
rates are the motivation behind
these methods, Pinamonti Kress
said.
Powell said he had already
noticed the exceptional academ-
ics in his classes.
“A lot of the kids that come
here are used
to being the
smartest in
their high
school class,”
Powell said.
“Now in my
classes, literal-
ly everyone is
smart. There
is a pretty high
standard.”
Ho said he believed that aca-
demically-talented students were
drawn to the University because
they knew they would be given
the same opportunities here that
they would anywhere else.

Century-old time
capsule excavated
PIttsbUrGH — Pennsylvania
ofcials were hoping for a grand
unveiling of a century-old time
capsule over the weekend, but
they say both the capsule and
their plans were spoiled.
the Pittsburgh tribune-re-
view says the copper container
was removed from the cor-
nerstone of the 100-year-old
soldiers & sailors Memorial Hall
& Museum last week. Inside, of-
fcials found 11 cents, two lead
soldiers, a tattered silk fag —
and rotted news pulp, confeder-
ate currency and photographs.
the lid of the cornerstone was
apparently never soldered shut
so moisture got in. Museum
ofcials plan to entomb a new
capsule next year to be opened
by Pittsburghers of the early

Jayhawks regain
their consistency in
weekends' games
BY MIKE LAVIERI
[email protected]
The soccer team played its most
consistent soccer this weekend as
it went 1-1.
Kansas (5-7 overall, 1-3 Big 12)
defeated Texas (7-3-2 overall, 0-2-
1) for the first time since 2005 and
for only the second time in the
last 15 years on Sunday.
With strong defense, the
Jayhawks were able to shut out
the Longhorns 1-0. Coach Mark
Francis told his players that the
season has been up and down,
and they haven’t put together two
performances in one weekend
where they have been consistently
good.
“This was the first weekend
that we did,” Francis said. “We
didn’t get the result on Friday
against A&M, but I thought that
we played very well. We played
very well today and we got the
result today.”
He was pleased that the team
played a consistent 90 minutes
and that it competed really hard.
“The kids did a really good job
staying disciplined and sticking
with the game
plan,” Francis
said.
Kansas was
able to limit
Texas to 12
shots, with only
four having
any chance of
going in. The
Jayhawks had
a chance in the
first half Sunday, when sopho-
more midfielder Whitney Berry
hit a shot off the post. Berry near-
ly had a goal on Friday, but it too
went off the post.
“We’re unlucky with the post,
but we’re going to get goals,” Berry
said.
T h e
J a y h a w k s
did find a
little luck
when junior
f o r w a r d
Emily Cressy
knocked in
a rebound
from a shot
by senior
midfielder Erin Ellefson in the
65th minute.
The Jayhawks were able to hold
freshman forward Leah Fortune
to one shot. Texas coaches kept
telling their players to look to get
the ball to Fortune.
“The defenders are playing well,
but they have been pretty consis-
tent all year,” Francis said. “Kat in
goal has been solid too.”
The defense’s only blunder this
weekend was a goal given up to
No. 10 Texas A&M’s (8-3 over-
all, 1-1 Big 12) Alyssa Mautz.
The senior midfielder tallied her
ninth goal of the season on Friday
in A&M’s 1-0 win over Kansas.
Mautz shot the ball from the top
of the box into the upper right
corner of the goal in the 21st
minute.
Kansas had an opportunity
with 17 minutes left to tie the
game when Emily Cressy hit a
shot toward goal, but Texas A&M
senior goalkeeper Kelly Dyer
punched the ball away.
Kansas will try to keep its
momentum going as it continues
its home stand on Friday as it
hosts No. 8 Oklahoma State (11-
1-1 overall, 4-0 Big 12).
“We need to build off this
game into the next ones and
keep doing what we are doing,”
said sophomore defender Shelby
Williamson.

uring the Big 12 Football
Media Days this summer,
Baylor didn’t bring along
quarterback Robert Griffin III.
It would have been nice to do a
feature on one of the most talented
players in the Big 12 coming off an
injury. Instead, Baylor coach Art
Briles wanted the attention spread
out among his players.
“There’s a lot of really good
football players at Baylor
University,” Baylor coach Art
Briles said. “Everybody knows
Robert Griffin.”
The Bears showed them off
Saturday, shellacking the Jayhawks
55-7. Sophomore receiver Josh
Gordon will haunt Jayhawks fans
for a while with his four-catch,
161-yard performance. One of his
two touchdowns came off a short
pass that turned into a 94-yard
burst.
And what can you say about
Baylor’s defense? It dismantled
any momentum Kansas had com-
ing into that game, picking off
freshman quarterback Jordan
Webb twice and sacking him three
times. Freshman defensive end
Tevin Elliot had two of the sacks,
broke up two passes and forced a
fumble.
The sturdy Jayhawk running
game that exploded against New
Mexico State was held to 99 yards
on 37 carries. That’s a 2.7 average.
Nothing doing for the Jayhawks
on any side of the ball.
Still, no one was as impressive
as RG3.
“I don’t know how many play-
ers had a touchdown or a big play
today, but it was a lot,” Griffin
said.
Well, Robert, you had four
— three in the air, one on the
ground. The 380 passing yards was
a career high and the 94-yard pass
to Gordon was a Baylor record.
There’s more.
Griffin added 64 rushing yards,
etching his name in the school
record books with 444 offensive
yards, the most by any individual.
He came out after the third quar-
ter, so his day could have been
more breathtaking.
Not to mention, the team had
678 offensive yards in the game,
also a Baylor record.
The Bears have never won a Big
12 game by more than 28 points.
The 48-point margin of victory
was the largest in school history.
Everyone knows Big 12 com-
petition is a different animal. But
these Bears were ridiculous in this
one.
What were the Jayhawks going
to do? What was any team going to
do? Sometimes the opposing team
is just destined to win. Baylor was
that team on Saturday.
“It was just one of those days
where everything fell into place,”
Griffin said, “and I’m glad it was
for us.”
The Jayhawks fell to 2-3 on the
season, though it seems worse
than it is. The wins have been
good while the losses have been
gut-wrenching.
Kansas senior safety Olaitan
Oguntodu put this game into per-
spective for everyone: “It is embar-
rassing.”

Before coach Turner Gill’s first
season began, many Kansas
football fans rejoiced that Big
12 powerhouses Texas and
Oklahoma were absent from the
Jayhawks’ schedule. They saw the
softer schedule as an opportunity
to get to a bowl game in the new
staff ’s first season.
It turns out there was another
team in Texas the Jayhawks should
have been more concerned about:
perennial conference bottom-feed-
er Baylor.
Highly-touted quarterback
Robert Griffin III passed for 380
yards and three touchdowns, both
new career highs, and the Baylor
Bears obliterated the Jayhawks
55-7 on Saturday at Floyd Casey
Stadium. The Bears broke team
records for total yardage — 678
— and points scored in a Big 12
game.
“I am disappointed,” Gill said.
“Obviously not a very good job by
us as a coaching staff. Great job by
Baylor, their staff and their players.
They played an outstanding foot-
ball game and we could never get
anything going.”
The Bears (4-1, 1-0) scored early
and often, recording at least one
touchdown in every quarter. In
addition to his passing yardage,
Griffin ran for 64 yards, including
a one-yard touchdown run early
in the second quarter that put the
Bears up 17-0. Baylor would go
on to score 55, the most ever for a
Bears team in Big 12 play.
The 678 yards surrendered were
the most by a Kansas (2-3, 0-1)
defense since it allowed 680 to
Auburn in 1988. The secondary,
ranked sixth-best in the country
in pass yardage allowed coming
into the game, allowed a 94-yard
screen pass for a touchdown to
wide receiver Josh Gordon with
4:09 left in the second quarter.
Gordon’s longest career reception
and Griffin’s longest career com-
pletion made the score 24-7.
“Overall, it was an embarrassing
game,” said senior safety Olaitan
Oguntodu. “It was just embarrass-
ing all the way around. We have to
watch film and figure out where we
are lacking, but we played a good
team today.”
In the film room, junior line-
backer Steven Johnson was
impressed with what he saw from
the Bears’ previous four games.
What impressed him even more
was the size of some of Baylor’s
starters.
“We knew they were a good
team,” Johnson said. “But when I
went out there, they were bigger
than I thought.
All of them
were big. I was
like, ‘What do
they eat? How
are they that
big?’”
F r e s h ma n
qua r t e r b a c k
Jordan Webb
was sacked three times and threw
two interceptions, the second a
14-yard pick-six to safety Tim
Atchinson that came only 12 sec-
onds after Baylor’s previous touch-
down.
Webb and the offense moved the
ball well in the first quarter but had
nothing to show for it. The team
picked up 85 yards in the quarter
but were outscored 10-0.
“It is definitely frustrating,”
Webb said. “You want to be able to
finish a drive and that is something
we just have to work at.”
Webb’s first quarter fumble was
the team’s first turnover on offense
since the second game of the sea-
son against Georgia Tech. Webb
would finish the game 16-for-28
passing with one touchdown and
two interceptions. Baylor domi-
nated the Jayhawks, but Webb said
it should not be looked at as a sign
to come in Big 12 play.
“It was the same, we just didn’t
execute,” Webb said. “We beat our-
selves, but you have to credit the
other team. They made big plays
when they needed to and we just
didn’t.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY
“I think they will temper them-
selves. the bridge is not crossed.
We are sitting right in the middle
of it, but still moving forward.
What we did is we played a good
game yesterday, a complete
game and now we have got to go
do it again next week in dallas.”
— Baylor coach Art Briles on his team’s
temperament Sunday
FACT OF THE DAY
tight end ted mcnulty made his
frst career start. this was the frst
time all season kansas started
with a two tight end set.
— KU Athletics
TRIVIA OF THE DAY
Q: When was the last time
kansas gave up at least 678 yards
of ofense?
A: 1988, against auburn
I
f you haven’t heard, the MLB season
wrapped up yesterday and playoffs
start later this week. The NHL season
is also just about to drop the puck on its
new season, and the NBA tips off later this
month. Multiple soccer leagues across the
globe are also in full swing.
Now the big question you’re probably
asking yourself is: why am I writing about
things such as soccer and hockey when it’s
football season? The answer is prepara-
tion. I am simply preparing myself for next
fall, when the NFL holds a lockout and my
Sundays start to revolve around homework
instead of football.
The NFL lockout seems inevitable, and
I can’t imagine the players or the owners
caving. The sad part about all this is that
the fans will be the ones who suffer. We
lose our Sundays, but the NFL owners
will still get paid $5 billion from their TV
contracts.
The NFL owners, spearheaded by
Commissioner Rodger Goodell, want to get
rid of two preseason games and add them
to the regular season. In practice this seems
great. Season ticket holders will no longer
pay regular season prices for meaningless
games.
The NFL Players Association is
not too fond of it. They feel that the
owners, who are asking for the players to
take a smaller piece of the cash pie, are put-
ting the players at greater injury risk. And
with all the studies coming out about the
long-term dangers of concussions, the NFL
owners are appearing even more selfish in
asking the players to do more for less.
The fact is that football is a violent game.
Just yesterday, newfound media darling/
salvaged soul Michael Vick left the Eagles
game in the first half after absorbing a
vicious sandwich hit along the goal line.
The truth is Vick would never have even
been in that starting position had it not
been for an injury to starter Kevin Kolb in
the opening game. Can we really expect
the players to give up a percentage of the
profits and subject their bodies to more
punishment?
On the flip side, rookie contracts are
astronomical. The draft’s No. i pick Sam
Bradford received $50 million and every
year the No. 1 pick wants even more than
last year’s. And the Players Association
has demonstrated their unity throughout
the season, beginning with the Saints
and Vikings coming together on the field
before the season opener.
Clearly the system needs to be changed.
The question is which side will give in first.
And no matter what happens, with a lock-
out next season the fans will lose. So my
only advice is to choose an MLS or NHL
team to follow if you want to keep occu-
pied. But no matter what, Sundays next fall
could be very lonely.

A strong fnish in
singles and doubles
By MikE VErnon
[email protected]
Kansas tennis opened play
Friday in Notre Dame’s Eck
Classic in South Bend, Ind.
Kansas competed in three sin-
gles draws and had three dou-
bles teams compete in the tour-
nament.
All of Kansas’ doubles teams
went undefeated on the day,
advancing to the quarterfinals.
Sophomore Vi ctori a
Khanevskaya stood out on the
first day by going undefeated
in both singles and doubles.
Two other singles players had
a strong opener as freshman
Dylan Windom and sophomore
Sara Lazarevic both advanced in
their consolation brackets. The
rest of the singles players did not
fare as well, as three players went
0-2 on the day.
Play continued Saturday as
the Jayhawks took the court
looking to build on their strong
play from day one. Things did
not go as planned, as two of the
three surviving doubles teams
dropped their first and only
matches of the day. The women
competing in singles consolation
draws were also eliminated after
losing their first matches.
Day two was not all lost.
Khanevskaya and her doubles
partner, senior Kate Goff, won
their doubles draw, defeating a
pair from Miami University in
the finals. Khanevskaya pushed
on and advanced to the finals
of her singles draw as well, but
she had to settle for second
place overall after losing to the
University of Akron’s Natasha
Kuvakina 6-1, 7-5.
Meanwhile, juniors Erin
Wilbert and Ekaterina Morozova
were finally eliminated Sunday
by a Wake Forest duo in the
pre-qualifying rounds of
the Intercollegiate Tennis
Association’s Women’s All-
American Championships in Los
Angeles. The Jayhawks will com-
pete next at the Intercollegiate
Tennis Association Regionals on
Oct. 21 in Fayetteville, Ark.

Hallberg sets record

conoVer, n.c. — Gary
Hallberg shot a record-setting
11-under 61 sunday to win the
ensure classic by one stroke
ahead of Fred couples.
Hallberg fnished at 18-under
198, tying the event record at
the rock Barn Golf and spa and
winning his frst career champi-
ons tour title. Hallberg bettered
the fnal-round record of 62,
set by Bob tway earlier sunday.
tway’s round had surpassed the
former mark of 64 set by doug
tewell in 2004.
“you never think you’re going
to win,” said Hallberg, who be-
came the seventh frst-time win-
ner on the 50-and-over tour this
season. “you look at the players
— guys like Fred couples and
Bernhard Langer — who are
champions, and you think ‘even
if I play my best, how am I going
to beat those guys?’
“you’ve got to believe, you’ve
got to have confdence. I’ve
never been the most confdent
golfer in my career ... but I’m
starting to believe in what I’m
doing out there. I knew I could
win, because I’ve done it before
... but I didn’t know if I could do
it here. I’m still stunned by it all.”

On Saturday, the cross country
team traveled to Madison, Wis.,
to compete against 20 different
colleges in the Wisconsin Adidas
Invitational. The men’s team fin-
ished 16th overall, while the women
were able to snag 11th place. Both
teams showed that there was still
need for improvement, head coach
Stanley Redwine said.
“I thought the quality of the
team was really good today and
I thought both teams competed
well,” he said. “However, we know
what we have to do to compete at
the next level.”
The top finisher for the men’s
team was junior Donny Wasinger,
who has proven to be the lead run-
ner for the team so far this season.
He clocked in on the 8K with a
career best of 24:03 and finished
12th out of 212 runners. Following
Wasinger was senior Nick Caprario,
who placed 54th and timed in at
24:31. No. 3 runner for KU was
junior Austin Bussing who ran a
career-best time of 25:02, leaving
him in 99th place.
Wasinger felt that he had a good
learning experience from the meet
and it was beneficial for the young-
er runners. He admitted that in the
middle of the race he got a little
smug, but finished the race strong.
As for his fellow teammates, he felt
that they competed well.
“Caprario ran very well and had
a good day. That was a good stride
for him.” Wasinger said. “I also
think it was good for the freshmen
to get their feet wet in a meet with
some stiff competition.”
Despite fnishing 33 points
behind Texas A&M, the women’s
team still displayed strong running
ability, especially junior Rebeka
Stowe. She finished in on her 6K
with a time of 20:32, placing 12th
overall out of 202 runners. Behind
her was sophomore Natalie Becker,
Kansas’ No. 2 runner, placing 54th
overall and timing in at 21:21,
proving to be a tough contender
also. Junior Tessa Turcotte crossed
the finish line placing 75th overall
with a time of 21:42, rounding out
the top three spots.
Stowe felt confident in her-
self and the women’s team, but
acknowledged that they are still
developing stamina and strength.
“We were hoping to have a little
better placing, but there were a
lot of women that really stepped
up and ran well, especially Becker.
We have been waiting for her to
come into her own and realize her
potential. She had a solid race.”
Stowe said.
Assistant coach Whittlesey was
also pleased with Becker’s perfor-
mance, along with Wasinger and
Stowe’s placing.
“I thought both Wasinger and
Stowe did a great job putting them-
selves in front of the pack and buy-
ing into where they belonged in the
race. They both need to get a little
bit stronger mentality in the middle
of the race,” Whittlesey said.
As for Becker, “I am really
pleased with Becker’s race today.
She had a great breakout race. This
is a good precursor race for the
ISU Pre-Nationals that are coming
up next.”

Kansas gave Texas Tech its
first Big 12 victory since 2007
in a five-set match that snapped
a 64-match conference losing
streak for the Lady Raiders.
Texas Tech’s sloppy play and
Kansas’ early lead gave Kansas
momentum that pushed them
through the first set. The Lady
Raiders had 12 errors in the first
set and Tolefree ended it with
her fourth kill.
The next two sets were simi-
lar in style and score, but it was
the Lady Raiders who gained a
2-1 edge. Kansas couldn’t match
the .258 attack percentage held
by Texas Tech and pulled out
just nine kills in the second set.
Set three was hopeful for the
Jayhawks as they gained a 4-1
lead. But Texas Tech was relent-
less. The Jayhawks kept the score
close and reclaimed the lead
after trailing 16-19. But after
see-sawing through the last few
points, Kansas
dropped the
set 25-22.
T h e
J a y h a w k
offense came
alive in the
fourth set
and it gained
a set back.
However, it stumbled again in
the fifth to lose 7-15.
Senior Karina Garlington con-
tributed 17
kills, seven
in the fourth
set, in the
losing effort.
Statistically,
the Jayhawks
looked good
as junior
A l l i s o n
Mayfield had 13 kills and soph-
omore Tayler
T o l e f r e e
had seven.
F r e s h ma n
Amy Wehrs
had her first
career ser-
vice ace in
the second
set.
Junior setter Nicole Tate had
12 kills and 40 assists and fresh-
man Jamie Mathieu racked up
11 digs.
Kansas is now 11-6 overall
and 2-4 in the Big 12. Texas
Tech jumped to 3-12 and 1-5 in
the conference.
The Jayhawks next take the
court October 9 in Lawrence to
take on No. 9 Iowa State.

Atlanta Braves secure playof slot
after 8-7 win over Philadelphia
ASSOCIATED PRESS
ATLANTA — Bobby Cox was
drenched with beer and cham-
pagne and hoisted onto the
shoulders of his players after the
Atlanta Braves gave their man-
ager a final trip to the playoffs.
Atlanta reached the postsea-
son as the NL wild-card team,
a first for
Cox, as Tim
Hudson and
the Braves
took a six-
run lead, then
held on for
an 8-7 vic-
tory over the
Philadelphia
Phillies on
Sunday.
“This being Bobby’s last year,
losing today was not an option,”
Hudson said.
After the win, the Braves
watched on TV as San Francisco
beat San Diego 3-0, giving the
Braves the NL wild card by one
game over the Padres.
The players sprayed cham-
pagne in the clubhouse and then
took the celebration outside.
“We fought and we fought and
we fought,” Hudson said of the
91-win season that included a
nine-game losing streak in April
and season-ending injuries to
Chipper Jones, Martin Prado
and Kris Medlen.
“I know there’s not a team in
this league that’s got more heart
than us,” Hudson said.
Hudson, Matt Diaz, Derrek
Lee, Peter Moylan and others
lifted Cox onto their shoulders as
fans chanted “Bobby! Bobby!”
Rookie Jason Heyward and
other players had high-fives for
fans.
“This is what it’s all about,”
said closer Billy Wagner, who
struck out the side in the ninth.
“You play all year long and it
comes down to the last game and
you get the champagne shower.”
Atlanta will
start the play-
offs Thursday
at NL West
champion San
Francisco in
the opener of
a best-of-five
series.
The Braves
won 14 straight
division titles with Cox but had
missed the playoffs since 2005.
There was a postgame REO
Speedwagon concert at Turner
Field, and a few hundred fans
remained after the concert to
watch the Giants’ win on the
video board. They chanted and
cheered after the final out as
bubbly was sprayed in the Braves’
clubhouse.
Cox had compliments for his
team.
“We try hard,” Cox said. “This
team is the hardest-working,
hardest-trying team we’ve ever
had here.”
Cox’s final regular-season
record was 2,504-2,001. He
ranks fourth in wins, trailing
only Connie Mack (3,776), John
McGraw (2,840) and Tony La
Russa (2,638). This is Cox’s 15th
season with 90 or more wins,
second to only McGraw.
Cox also had 158 regular-
season ejections, easily surpass-
ing McGraw (117) for the most
among managers.
“I know there’s not a team
in this league that’s got
more heart than us.”

Game Balls
3. Junior wide receiver Daymond Patterson: With six catches, 53
yards and a touchdown Saturday, Patterson established himself as the
go-to guy among the receivers. He has at least four catches in every
game this season.
2. Sophomore wide receiver/running back D.J. Beshears: the
electricity was still there, but the blocks were not. Still, beshears man-
aged.
1. Senior punter Alonso Rojas: rojas was excellent again on Satur-
day, pinning the bears on their own ten-yard line twice. rojas ranked
fourth in the big 12 this season going into the game with fve punts
downed inside opponent 20s.
Delay of Games
3. Senior right tackle Brad Thorson: thorson was called for two
false starts on one drive and was part of an ofensive line that allowed
three sacks on the day. thorson’s leadership skills of the feld are invalu-
able, but save last week’s game against New Mexico State, the ofensive
line could use some more cohesiveness.
2. Senior kicker Jacob Branstetter: branstetter has regressed in his
senior year, making only two of fve attempts this season. On Saturday
he missed a 42 yarder in a non-pressure situation.
1. Sophomore safety Lubbock Smith: Smith was partially to blame
for the most embarrassing play of the day when he let wide receiver ter-
rance Williams score an 11 yard touchdown on a broken play. the snap
rolled by sophomore quarterback robert Grifn III, but he recovered
and hit a wide open (and unmoving) Williams in the end zone for the
bears’ ffth touchdown.
Play of the Game
Pinned inside their own ten yard line, the bears ofense looked to
stay conservative and play the feld position game. their conservative
play call, however, ended up going 94 yards for a touchdown. Grifn
hit sophomore wide receiver Josh Gordon on a simple screen pass,
but Jones exploded past slipping Kansas defenders and had nobody
around him for the last 70 yards of his scamper. the score put the
bears up three scores, 24-7, late in the second quarter.
Game Notes
THE GLASS IS HALf fULL …
Senior punter Alonso rojas is really good (when his teammates are
not giving up blocks). the Jayhawks have a bye week to sort this mess
out. And a win against rival K-State next thursday could put this loss in
the distant memory.
THE GLASS IS HALf EmPTY …
this Kansas team is not winning another game this season. What
seemed like competitive matches against K-State and Mizzou now
look like sure losses. Sure losses against Nebraska and texas A&M. ..
still look like sure losses. And who is going to put their money on the
Jayhawks against Colorado or Iowa State after they surrendered more
points to baylor than any other big 12 school in the history of the
conference?
BIGGEST ANSWER
Gill touted the Kansas defense in his weekly press conference last
tuesday, but he may have ended up jinxing them by pointing out they
ranked sixth in the nation in pass yardage allowed through four games.
Against a quality big 12 ofense, it got ugly fast. Kansas defenders
missed tackles, blew coverage, did not get to the quarterback (again)
and, worst of all, just looked slower. Not a good omen.
STILL QUESTIONING
When are the Jayhawks going to start forcing turnovers? A team can
only play containment football so much. Gill has emphasized the turn-
over battle as key at many points this season, but the Jayhawks rank
near the bottom of the country in both takeaways and recorded sacks.
the defense needs to start making ofense adapt to them instead
of the opposite, which is how it has gone at every game this season
except Georgia tech.
LOOKING AHEAD
Next up for Kansas is rival K-State in two weeks at Memorial
Stadium. the game will be a prime time thursday contest, and if the
Jayhawks ever needed some good publicity, it is now.
GOOD, BAD OR JUST PLAIN STUPID
Original prediction: baylor 21, Kansas 10. Actual score: baylor 55, Kansas
7. Looks like we gave the Kansas ofense too much credit and the defense
a little too much. OK, a lot too much. Fewexpected Kansas to win their
frst big 12 road game —especially inWaco, texas, where they are now
0-5 —but nobody sawthemgetting obliterated by a 48-point margin.
fINAL THOUGHT
For the frst time this season, Kansas’ starting freshmen looked like,
well, freshmen. Webb tried to force the ball into impossible holes at
times, putting the ball right into a bear defender, giving up an inter-
ception returned for a touchdown. running back James Sims could
not fnd the hole and fumbled when the game was still within reach
in the second quarter. the young core has performed well, but one
should expect more struggles like this in the maturation process.

KANSAS FOOTBALL REWIND
BY KORY CARPENTER
[email protected]
In the middle of the 48-point trounc-
ing at the hands of the Baylor Bears on
Saturday, something became painstakingly
clear: Speed is not exactly the strength of
the Kansas defense. It was evident every
time Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III
dropped back to pass.
The Kansas cornerbacks were usual-
ly seven or eight yards off their receiver,
expecting Griffin to throw deep or run,
something he has been known for dur-
ing his time in Waco. That extra cushion
opened up the short passing game for the
Bears, something linebacker Steven Johnson
and his teammates weren’t prepared for and
couldn’t handle.
“We were expecting a lot more deep
routes, but they kept throwing hitches for
six or seven yards every time,” Johnson said.
“When we started to bite on those, he threw
the ball downfield.”
Often times, Griffin didn’t even have to
throw downfield to beat the soft-cushioned
Kansas defense. With a little over four min-
utes remaining in the second quarter and
Baylor on its own six yard line, Griffin threw
a screen to receiver Josh Gordon. Gordon
had more than a few yards of space to beat
his defender before effortlessly taking the
pass for a Baylor-record
94 yards and a touch-
down.
Baylor coach Art
Briles could have
watched the Kansas
game film against
Southern Miss to for-
mulate his attack. In
the loss to the Golden
Eagles, the defense again
had trouble stopping a dual-threat quarter-
back who had deep-play capabilities.
Georgia Tech’s offense is one dimensional,
running until they can’t run anymore. Then
they run some more. When the defense
doesn’t know what’s coming, the Yellow
Jackets have to rely on speed and athleti-
cism. When forced to do that on Saturday,
the Bears put up 678 yards of total offense
and 55 points.
Were the nearly 700 yards given up
because of a lack of speed or bad position-
ing? Coach Turner Gill said he thought both
factored in.
“I think when you are
lined up correctly, you
have to go make the play,”
Gill said. “We just weren’t
quite in sync with every-
thing.”
Not being in sync led to
a missed assignment and
big plays. Consistently
being beat and missing
tackles because of a lack of speed and ath-
leticism leads to a final score like Kansas
fans saw on Saturday.

Murray leads Sooners past Longhorns 28-20
ASSOCIATED PRESS
DALLAS — Landry Jones threw
for 236 yards and two touch-
downs, DeMarco Murray ran for
two scores on hurry-up plays and
No. 8 Oklahoma survived another
fourth-quarter swoon Saturday
to hand No. 21 Texas its second
straight loss, 28-20 in the Red River
Rivalry.
The Sooners (5-0, 1-0 Big 12)
jumped out to a two-touchdown
lead in the first quarter, then got
bailed out by a muffed punt late
for a second straight week. The
Longhorns had scored 10 straight
points and were set to get the ball
back in the final 62 seconds when
Aaron Williams dropped the punt
and James Winchester recovered it
to let Oklahoma run out the clock.
Two plays earlier, Jared Norton
had a chance to give Texas (3-2,
1-1) the ball inside the Oklahoma
10 but instead knocked Jones’
fumble out of bounds.
The Longhorns lost back-to-
back games for the first time since
2007, following a surprising 34-12
loss at home to UCLA last week.
Making his rivalry debut,
Garrett Gilbert struggled to get the
Longhorns’ offense moving until
mounting a late charge against an
Oklahoma team that had been out-
scored 41-10 in
the fourth quar-
ter coming in.
Gilbert con-
nected with
M a l c o l m
Williams on a
40-yard pass, but
the Longhorns
had to settle for
a field goal after
getting inside
the 10 for the
second time in the second half.
Texas then stopped Oklahoma
on three plays, including Jones’
fumble that rolled out of bounds
at the 6, and seemed poised to get
one last chance to tie the game
when Williams fumbled — just like
Cincinnati’s D.J. Woods did late to
help the Sooners come away with a
31-29 win last week.
It was the last in a line of key
mistakes that led to Texas’ down-
fall, mostly in the form of untimely
penalties by the defense. Three of
Ok l a h o ma’ s
four scoring
drives were
extended by
Texas penal-
ties on third
down, and the
Longhorns also
had a fumble
recovery in the
red zone erased
after a flag.
When it was
all over, Oklahoma defensive cap-
tain Travis Lewis trotted around
the south end zone of the Cotton
Bowl filled with crimson-clad fans
with the Golden Hat Trophy tilted
atop his head.
The Sooners won for only the
second time in the last six years
in front of the 65th straight sellout
in the series, matching last year’s
record attendance of 96,009.
Gilbert finished with 265 yards
on 27-for-41 passing with no
touchdowns. Until the wild finish,
Oklahoma was in control from the
start.
Texas needed a fake punt to
drive into the Sooners’ territory for
the first time on its opening drive
of the second half. Linebacker
Ryan Roberson took the snap and
barely picked up 3 yards — close
enough that Stoops challenged it —
to gain the first down, and Gilbert
hit James Kirkendoll for a 44-yard
gain on the next play to set up
Ryan Tucker’s 22-yard field goal
that made it 21-10.
The Longhorns lost a chance to
get even closer three plays later,
when Eddie Jones’ recovery of a
Landry Jones fumble was wiped
away because he lined up offside.
Oklahoma added to its lead when
Murray went 20 yards for a score
on a hurry-up play, three snaps
after Jackson Jeffcoat drew a per-
sonal foul for shoving an Oklahoma
player down after the Sooners had
failed to pick up a third-and-29.
Oklahoma sped out to a 21-7
lead, scoring three touchdowns
before the Longhorns even had
that many first downs.
Oklahoma used its hurry-
up offense to score on Murray’s
18-yard run around left end before
the Longhorns had set up on
defense.
Oklahoma struck again with a
75-yard scoring march after Texas
opened with a three-and-out, and
freshman Kenny Stills made a nifty
over-the-shoulder catch on Jones’
16-yard TD pass to make it 14-0.

After running away from
Stanford, Oregon jumped over
Boise State and into No. 3 in The
Associated Press college football
poll on Sunday.
Meanwhile, for the first time in
10 years, Texas fell out of the Top
25. Two more traditional powers
tumbled from the rankings, too,
with Penn State and Southern
California joining the Longhorns
in the others receiving votes.
The top two spots in the
rankings remained unchanged.
Alabama is No. 1 and Ohio State
is No. 2, just the way it’s been
since the preseason.
No. 4 Boise State spent the
entire first month of the season
ranked third, but the Broncos
couldn’t hold off the Ducks this
week.
Oregon fell behind 21-3 in
the first quarter against Stanford
on Saturday night at home, but
Darron Thomas and LaMichael
James brought the Ducks zoom-
ing back for a 52-31 victory.
The Ducks lead the nation in
scoring (56 points per game) and
total offense (569 yards).
Stanford came into the game
ranked No. 9, but fell seven spots
this week.
Boise State remained unbeaten
with a 59-0 victory against win-
less league rival New Mexico
State, but it appears the lack of
respect for the Western Athletic
Conference is already hurting the
Broncos.
With a nonconference game
against Toledo on Saturday, fol-
lowed by meetings with WAC
weaklings San Jose State and
Louisiana Tech, it would seem
that the Broncos could be stuck
at No. 4 for a while unless one
of those top three teams lose or
struggle mightily with a weaker
opponent.
The only team currently
ranked on Boise State’s remain-
ing schedule is No. 21 Nevada.
The Broncos visit the Wolf Pack
on Nov. 26.
Alabama received a season-
high 58 first-place votes from
the media panel after trouncing
Florida 31-6. The Gators dropped
seven spots to No. 14, their low-
est ranking since they were 14th
on Nov. 11, 2007.
Ohio State received one
first-place vote and Boise State
received the other. Oregon had
1,379 points and Boise State got
1,341.
TCU was No. 5 in the latest
poll.
The top five in the USA today
coaches’ poll was the same as the
AP’s top five.
No. 6 Oklahoma, Nebraska,
Auburn, Arizona and Utah round
out the top 10 — a place where
Texas has been a regular resident
over the last decade under coach
Mack Brown.
But the Longhorns lost their
second straight game Saturday,
28-20 to Oklahoma, leaving them
unranked for the first time since
Oct. 15, 2000. Their streak of 162
consecutive weeks in the rank-
ings was the longest active streak
in the country.
Ohio State now has the longest
streak at 90 straight poll appear-
ances. Florida is second at 87
straight.
Texas hasn’t lost three straight
games since closing the 1999
season that way. The Longhorns
have a week off before visiting
Nebraska.
“We have two weeks of work,”
linebacker Eddie Jones said.
“Work hard as a team, stay up,
stay motivated and keep this heart
and drive that we had today. We
can go back out and win. We can
change things around here.”
Penn State also lost for the
second time Saturday, drop-
ping a 24-3 decision at Iowa.
The Nittany Lions fell out of the
rankings for the first time since
October 2007.
For USC, a last-second loss to
Washington started the Trojans’
fall last season. USC even dropped
out of the rankings at the end of
the 2009 regular season before
finishing at No. 22.
Saturday’s last-second 32-31
loss to Washington at the Los
Angeles Coliseum pushed the
Trojans out of the poll for the
first time this season.
North Carolina State also fell
out of the rankings after one
week, following a 41-30 loss to
Virginia Tech.

with 3-0 win against Padres
Oklahoma sped out to a
21-7 lead, scoring three
touchdowns before the

many frst downs.

Sanchez’s pitching gives Giants NL West title, matchup with Braves
ASSOCIATED PRESS
SAN FRANCISCO — Jonathan
Sanchez pulled on a pair of ski gog-
gles to assure himself a clear view
of the celebration. No champagne
eyes.
Te San Francisco Giants held
their celebratory clubhouse party,
at last, following a tough two-day
wait.
Sanchez pitched the Giants back
into the playofs afer a six-year ab-
sence and also provided a clutch
hit, beating the San Diego Padres
3-0 Sunday to wrap up the NL West
title.
“I told myself, ‘Tis is my last
start and I’m going to win this
game,’” Sanchez said.
Buster Posey homered and the
Giants got it done — on their third
try against the Padres this week-
end — to capture their frst divi-
sion crown and playof berth since
2003.
“It’s been seven years since we’ve
seen something like this,” closer
Brian Wilson said. “It’s been a roll-
ercoaster the entire season.”
San Francisco will host the wild-
card Atlanta Braves starting Turs-
day at AT&T Park, with ace Tim
Lincecum well rested to go in Game
1. Te Braves beat the Phillies 8-7
earlier in the day, extending man-
ager Bobby Cox’s farewell season.
Two NL playof races came down
to Game 162.
San Diego missed a chance to
force a Monday playof with the
Giants at Petco Park to decide the
NL West winner. Te loser of that
would have fown to Atlanta to
determine the wild card had there
been a three-way tie.
Manager Bruce Bochy instructed
his players not to pack any bags. He
told them the regular season would
end Sunday.
When it did, the Giants let loose.
Pablo Sandoval and other Gi-
ants waved orange towels atop the
dugout steps afer Wilson’s frst two
pitches were strikes to Will Venable
with two outs in the ninth.
When Venable struck out swing-
ing one pitch later, Posey ran out to
Wilson and they jumped together
at the mound. Te rest of the Gi-
ants joined them and gray NL
West champion shirts were quickly
handed out.
Te Giants then took a victory
lap along the outfeld warning track,
slapping hands with fans leaning
over the fence. Bochy brought up
the rear of the lap, tipping his cap
and waving it over and over again.
“It’s a group that coalesced into
a team that wants to get there,” said
Bochy, who eliminated his former
team.
Padres players stayed put at the
railing of their dugout watching the
celebration in disappointment.
Te Giants were in fourth place
and 7½ games out of the lead on
July 4.

Bife wins at Kansas, but Johnson leads Sprint Cup
ASSOCIATED PRESS
KANSAS CITY, Kan. —
NASCAR’s championship race
tightened considerably Sunday
at Kansas Speedway, where Greg
Biffle won to keep his title hopes
alive and Jimmie Johnson returned
to the top of the Sprint Cup lead-
erboard.
Johnson, the four-time defend-
ing series champion, took a medio-
cre car and drove it to a second-
place finish behind Biffle. It pushed
him past Denny Hamlin in the
standings, and he’s got an eight-
point cushion after the third of 10
Chase for the Sprint Cup champi-
onship races.
Only once since the Chase began
in 2004 has the eventual cham-
pion left Kansas ranked lower than
second in the standings. But this
is suddenly the
closest battle in
Chase history,
as the top seven
finishers Sunday
were title con-
tenders.
The field
heads next week
to California
with the top
nine drivers
separated by 101 points.
“It’s a great position to be in, but
it’s way too early to think about it,
to worry about defending,” Johnson
said. “You have Chase guys running
so good each and every week. Until
that checkered falls in Homestead,
it’s anybody’s
championship.”
Biffle sud-
denly finds
himself in that
mix. He opened
the day ranked
ninth in the
standings, 140
points behind
the leader. His
second win of
the season cut the mark nearly
in half: He moved up one spot to
eighth and is just 85 points behind
the leader.
“Everybody asked me if we were
out of it, and I said we’re going to
do the best we can,” the Roush-
Fenway Racing driver said. “If we
win them all, we win them all.”
Kyle Busch had the worst race
of all Chase drivers because of a
long-running feud with non-title
contender David Reutimann.
Contact between the two early in
the race caused Reutimann to spin,
and he came back and appeared to
intentionally wreck Busch with 112
laps remaining. Busch was running
seventh at the time of the acci-
dent, and he dropped back to 22nd
before finishing 21st.
Busch was furious over his radio,
demanding NASCAR take action
against Reutimann. Crew chief
Dave Rogers heightened the drama
by telling Busch that Reutimann’s
team demanded he retaliate against
Busch.
Busch took time after the race
to change out of his firesuit before
speaking to reporters, and he was
much calmer about the incident.
“Whatever. It’s just really unfor-
tunate,” Busch said. “The guy was
loose, said it on the radio, he slid
up off the bottom and I got into
him unintentionally and just spun
him out. My fault, 100 percent.
But then the retaliation? For a guy
that’s in the Chase, that’s racing for
something ... he’ll be here next year.
He could have wrecked me in any
of the first 26 races next year. That
would have been fine.
“It’s just hard to swallow some-
thing, a day like today, where we
had a top-five car going.”
Busch dropped from third to
seventh in the standings and is 80
points behind Johnson.
Reutimann didn’t admit that he
intentionally wrecked Busch, but
had no guilt for tangling with a
championship contender.
“You guys can sugarcoat it all the
time, but he wrecked me,” he said.
“You can tell me how bad he wants
it, how hard he drives, how much
he wants it above everybody else.
That’s all fine.”

CLEVELAND — The Cleveland
Browns finally finished.
Peyton Hillis rumbled for 102
yards and a touchdown, Phil
Dawson kicked three field goals
and the Browns held on to a fourth-
quarter lead, surviving a big day by
Terrell Owens for their first win,
23-20 over the Cincinnati Bengals
on Sunday.
The Browns (1-3) had lost their
first three games by a total of 12
points, failing to finish down the
stretch and frustrating coach Eric
Mangini with silly, self-inflicted
mistakes.
But this time, they overcame
a costly penalty on rookie safety
T.J. Ward, made a crucial sack of
Carson Palmer in the closing min-
utes and withstood a 10-catch, 222-
yard performance by Owens, who
also moved into second place on
the NFL career list in receiving
yards.
The Bengals (2-2) had their
eight-game winning streak in the
AFC North snapped.
After taking a 23-10 lead in the
third quarter on Dawson’s 22-yard-
er, which moved him within one
field goal of tying Hall of Famer
Lou Groza’s franchise record of 234,
the Browns nearly let another lead
slip away before regaining their
footing in the closing minutes.
With Cincinnati driving for a
possible go-ahead touchdown,
Browns linebacker Matt Roth
sacked Palmer and forced Bengals
coach Marvin Lewis to call for
a punt with roughly five minutes
left.
Cleveland took over at its 11 with
4:41 remaining and ran out the
clock by giving the ball to Hillis, a
human battering ram who picked
up 24 yards on a second-and-7
play before the two-minute warn-
ing. Quarterback Seneca Wallace,
who made his third straight
start in place of the injured Jake
Delhomme, then took a knee three
times to run out the clock.
Palmer finished 25 of 36 for
371 yards and two touchdowns,
including a career-best 78-yarder
in the second quarter to Owens,
who was almost unstoppable as
the Browns chose to double-team
Chad Ochocinco.
Wallace went 18 of 30 for 184
yards and threw a 24-yard TD pass
to Evan Moore.
Cincinnati’s offense finally lived
up to its preseason hype, but it
failed to come up with the neces-
sary conversions with the game on
the line.
A personal foul against Ward
helped the Bengals pull within
23-20 on Palmer’s 4-yard shovel
pass to Brian Leonard with 10:44
left.
On third-and-goal, Palmer’s
pass over the middle intended for
rookie wide receiver Jordan Shipley
was incomplete, but Ward deliv-
ered a forearm to Shipley’s head
and was nailed with a penalty, giv-
ing the Bengals an automatic first
down. Shipley laid dazed with a
concussion and was helped off the
field. He did not return.
On the next
play, Palmer
pitched the ball
with his left
hand to Leonard,
who went in
untouched.
The Browns
went three-and-
out the next
time they got
the ball, and
Palmer marched the Bengals down
the field on passes to Owens and
Ochocinco, who huddled with
their quarterback on the sideline
several times in the second half.
Cincinnati got as far as Cleveland’s
37 on its last drive, but Ochocinco
was called for interference on third
down and Roth pulled down a
scrambling Palmer from behind on
the game’s biggest defensive play.
Hillis, who ran for a career-high
144 yards last week at Baltimore,
plowed over from the 1 to give the
Browns a 20-10 lead in the third.
It was Hillis’ fourth straight game
with a TD run, the first Cleveland
back to do that since Greg Pruitt
did it five games in a row in 1975.
Owens scored his first TD for
Cincinnati on his 17th catch for
the Bengals, tying it 10-10 in the
second.
On second-and-13 at Cleveland’s
22, Palmer lofted a deep pass for
Owens, who had a step on corner-
back Sheldon Brown. When Brown
tripped and fell at about the 35,
all Owens had
to do was haul
Palmer’s pass
and waltz into
the end zone.
O w e n s
didn’t mark
the occasion
with any elabo-
rate dance. He
simply placed
the ball on the
ground, just beyond the goal line,
and did his trademark “T.O.” flex in
front of a bedsheet hanging in the
corner that read: “T.O. and C.O.
have B.O.”
Owens moved past Isaac Bruce
into second place on the league’s
career yardage list. Owens has
15,323 yards, second only to Jerry
Rice’s 22,895.
The Bengals got the ball right
back when Leon Hall intercept-
ed Wallace, but Mike Nugent’s
44-yard field goal try was blocked
by Browns linebacker Scott Fujita.

ASSOCIATED PRESS
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — That
famous football philosopher
Barry Switzer was fond of saying
“winning fixes everything.”
In fact, the former Oklahoma
coach made that very observation
just two days before his embat-
tled 1980 Sooners smacked a 7-0
North Carolina team, 41-7, one
week after the Tar Heels had plas-
tered East Carolina.
Thirty years later, Butch Davis
on Saturday was in command of
a UNC club that now is treading
the uneasy ledge that Switzer and
the Sooners used to routinely call
home.
Key players are under mandate
to sit out games, NCAA investi-
gators breeze in and out of town,
Davis is earning a virtual Ph.D in
plausible deniability, and the Tar
Heels very much needed the sort
of comfort food that yet another
win over ECU could provide.
Some fixing got done, you
might say.
After some trouble early, the
2-2 Tar Heels even began to
resemble the team many thought
would be 4-0 and ranked high in
the national polls.
Behind a husky, confident
offensive line and relentless run-
ners Johnny White and Shaun
Draughn, UNC sailed to a 42-17
rout on a sunny afternoon in
front of a packed house.
It all ended with Davis being
roundly cheered as he waved to
students and jogged off the field
a minute or so before his players
locked arms and sang along as the
band played the school fight song
in what amounted to a rousing
postgame pep rally.
Quarterback T.J. Yates called
the experience a “remedy.”
“It’s the way for us to get away
from the off-field distractions,”
the senior said. “The games keep
us going. It’s what we look for-
ward to.”
Slowly, the Heels are begin-
ning to get players back from the
inactive list, and the nature of
the ACC is such that many of the
team’s preseason goals might still
be accomplished.
“We’re gaining a little more
confidence with each game as we
go along,” star linebacker Bruce
Carter said. “Everybody on the
team is digging a little deeper.”
Up next is another game in
Kenan Stadium — Clemson on
Saturday.

Team hosts clinic at Kansas River
BY KATHLEEN GIER
[email protected]
While strong winds and cold
temperatures made for an envi-
ronment that coaches admitted
would be questionable for team
practice, the Kansas women’s row-
ing team hosted a clinic Saturday
morning and taught interested
adults the basics of the sport.
“People were enthusiastic
about it,” assistant coach George
Jenkins said. “The weather was
not totally cooperative, but the
girls did really well keeping
everything together out there.”
Kansas Athletics and Lawrence
Parks and Recreation joined
forces to host the event, which
was attended by 21 participants.
When the facility was built there
was some commitment from the
University to promote commu-
nity rowing.
“This was the first baby step
in that direction. We are look-
ing forward to it, and we have to
work it around the schedule of
the team, but I think this went
really well,” Jenkins said.
The three hour long clinic con-
sisted of different talks and les-
sons leading up to the main event:
rowing on the Kansas River. First
the group was taught the basic
rowing strokes while working out
on rowing machines in the boat-
house. After that there was a safe-
ty talk where they learned rowing
terminology, and then the guests
were introduced to the boats.
Each of the fve boats in the
water had help from three or four
experienced team members.
Out of the 21 participants
Jenkins noted that about half of
them were related in some way to
a woman on the team. Tere were
several mother-daughter pairs
who were able to work togeth-
er. One of the mother-daugh-
ter teams was senior Lauren
Pollmiller and her mother Becki
Hill from Lenexa.
“I had never actually done it,
but I had always encouraged her
to get out and do it,” Hill said.
This was my first attempt to do it
and I really enjoyed it, I could see
where it would be a lot of really
hard work though.”
Hill used to race sailboats, but
said the event made her see the
differences and also gave her a
greater appreciation and under-
standing of what her daughter
goes through at practice every
day.
Having her mother there
made the clinic more fulfilling
for Pollmiller.
“It was fun, because I call her
after practice almost every day
and tell her ‘this is what we did
today’ and ‘I am having so much
trouble with this,’ but now I can
be like, ‘Remember when you
did this?’”

WORLD CUP
FIFA look at U.S.
bid for World Cup
this week ofcials of FIFA will be
visiting the United states to exam-
ine America’s bid to host the 2018
or 2022 World cup. the U.s. Bid
committee has touted the tourna-
ment as a major moneymaker for
the economy, predicting a beneft
of up to $5 billion. such a needed
boost sounds too good to be true.
Organizers for the 1994 World
cup claimed that the U.s. would
see a positive efect of $4 billion,
yet a post-cup analysis showed a
cumulative loss of $5.6 billion to
$9 billion.

kANsAs cItY, Mo. — With the
AL east championship already

outlasted the kansas city royals
3-2 in 12 innings sunday.
Manager Joe Maddon’s team
learned it had clinched the

vantage in the ninth inning when
New York lost at Boston 8-4.
“It took a little of the tension
of,” Maddon said. “We wanted to
win this game. How ‘bout that?
extra innings, on the road, didn’t
need to win. It tells you some-
thing about our ballclub.”
the Yankees and tampa Bay
began the day tied at 95-66.
to win the division, New York
needed to fnish ahead of the
rays, who held the tiebreaker
after winning the season series
10-8.
