University medical

doctor killed by train


A University employee and medical
doctor at Student Health Services was
struck and killed by a train Monday
morning.
Lawrence Police
found Patricia A.
Denning, 56, dead
upon arrival at the
Santa Fe Railroad
Station near Sev-
enth and New York
streets at 11:10
a.m.
According to a University press re-
lease, Denning worked at Watkins Health
Center since 1990 and served as chief of
staff from 2005 through July 2012.
On behalf of the entire University
community, I offer the deepest condo-
lences to the family of Dr. Denning,
Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said
in the release, offering thoughts and
prayers to Dennings loved ones. Her
contributions to the health and well-be-
ing of our students will be felt for years
to come.
Sgt. Trent McKinley, an LPD spokes-
man, said police worked with Lawrence-
Douglas County Fire and Medial and
BNSF railway, which operated the train,
to determine no vehicles were involved
and foul play is not suspected. McKinley
said the department does not plan to re-
lease any additional information on the
accident.
Jill Jess, a University spokeswoman,
said during Dennings time with Student
Health Services she oversaw community
health responses to mumps and H1N1.
She also established the Travel Clinic,
which offers immunizations and coun-
seling to students traveling outside the
U.S.
Denning was married with three chil-
dren.
Dr. Denning was a wonderful col-
league and a dedicated physician,
said Carol Seager, director of health for
Student Health Services. Her direct and
caring response to student and com-
munity health issues showed her deep
commitment to her patients and the
public.

Women still make less money
than men, according to a new study
by the U.S. Census Bureau, which
reports a 23 percent pay diference
between the sexes in 2011.
Te study found the median in-
come for women with full-time jobs
last year was $37,118, compared
with $48,202 for men. Te gender
pay gap was the same in 2010.
Christianne Corbett, senior
researcher at the American Asso-
ciation of University Women, said
there are a number of reasons for
the pay gap.
Men and women tend to work
in diferent jobs and men tend to
work in higher-paying jobs, Cor-
bett said. Womens work has been
traditionally less valued compared
to work that men have done. An-
other explanation that people
put forth is that men work longer
hours.
Women are ofen overlooked for
promotional opportunities at work
because of their traditional roles as
mothers, said Kathy Rose-Mockry,
program director of the Emily
Taylor Center for Women & Gen-
der Equity. Tis could be because
they typically take more respon-
sibility for the family and are more
likely to take a break from their ca-
reers or work part-time to care for
children, Rose-Mockry said.
Race also plays into pay gap
fndings. Te Census Bureau study
showed white women make more
money weekly compared to African
American and Hispanic men and
women. White women make an
average of $703 a week, while black
men, who on average make more
than black women, make $653
weekly. Hispanic men, who also
make more than Hispanic women,
earn $571 weekly. However, Asian
American men make more than
average white men, about $970 a
week; Asian American women also
make more than white women,
about $751 a week.
Terriss Ford, a freshman from
Overland Park, said the ratio doesnt
mean employers are discriminating
against women purposely.
Te gender roles that have been
established over the course of time
havent completely deteriorated
yet, Ford said. Men have always
been on the top of that ladder.
Gabby Guillen, a senior from To-
peka, said the pay gap isnt fair. She
said many people believe men are
more capable than women.
Tey are more masculine and
more powerful than women are,
Guillen said. People respect men
taking control over women.
According to an interpretation
of the study from the AAUW called
Te Simple Truth About the Pay
Gap, full-time working women in
Kansas made an average of $32,204
in 2010. Full-time working men in
Kansas made an average of $43,773.
Te ratio in Kansas was 3 percent
lower than the national average.
AAUWs analysis also suggests
the gender pay gap decreased since
the 1970s because of womens prog-
ress in education and in the work-
force. Yet within the past decade,
the ratio has been fairly stagnant.
Jake Waters, a sophomore from
Hutchinson, said the pay gap is de-
creasing too slowly.
Its messed up, Waters said.
Tere should be equal pay right
now.

Andrew Turner, a senior from
Overland Park, has seen his student
fees go up each year since he was a
freshman. But thats OK, he said,
because his University education has
led to a mechanical engineering job
waiting for him afer graduation.
Te cost of attending the Univer-
sity has steadily risen and continues
to be highest in the state, said Jack
Martin, the director of Strategic
Communications for the University,
but students are still receiving an af-
fordable education.
Te University of Kansas is the
fagship research university for the
state of Kansas, and as such has op-
portunities available for students
that arent ofered by other institu-
tions, Martin said.
While state funding has decreased
by 40 percent in the past 13 years,
Martin said tuition still remains in
the lower quarter compared to na-
tional peers.
We want to ofer the best edu-
cation at the most afordable price,
which is why we are also in the pro-
cess of changing how the University
does business so that we can reduce
administrative costs and devote the
savings to teaching and research,
Martin said.
Nearly half of tuition pays for
professors salaries, said Richard
McKinney, budget director for the
University.
Turner said he has learned a lot
from his professors, which makes
his tuition well-spent.
Te more money that goes to
faculty, the better professors in
theory you should have, Turner
said.
Although the other half of his
tuition is allocated to expenses in-
cluding maintenance, research and
support staf, Turner said the price is
worth it, despite seeing a rise in stu-
dent fees since his freshman year.
If you pay a certain amount of
money, you expect the campus to
look nice, Turner said.
Jamie Branch, a senior from To-
peka, said higher tuition should
competitively pay for faculty sala-
ries, but that more money should
come from the state.
Its unfortunate that tuition is in-
creasing for students, but the money
has to come from somewhere,
Branch said.
Andrew Murray, a senior from
Olathe, sees his tuition as an invest-
ment in the overall brand of the
University. He said the traditions
and novel campus experience are
worth every tuition dollar.
Te basketball defnitely makes
it worth it, Murray said.

SALT LAKE CITY His cam-
paign at a crossroads, Mitt Rom-
ney struggled Tuesday to limit po-
litical fallout from his dismissive
comments about nearly half of all
Americans while Republican of-
fcials debated the impact of serial
controversies on the partys hopes
of capturing the White House.
President Barack Obamas
White House piled on, seven
weeks before Election Day.
When youre president of the
United States, you are president of
all the people, not just the people
who voted for you, said press sec-
retary Jay Carney.
He added that Obama deeply
believes that were in this togeth-
er.
Romney seemed to say other-
wise in a video that surfaced on
Monday in which he told donors
at a fundraiser that 47 percent of
Americans dont pay taxes and be-
lieve they are entitled to extensive
government support.
My job is not to worry about
those people, he said. Ill never
convince them they should take
personal responsibility and care
for their lives.
Privately, some Republicans
were critical of Romneys most
recent comments and his overall
campaign to date, saying he had
frittered away opportunities.
Tey also noted that with early
voting already under way in some
states, the time to recover was
smaller than might appear.
Linda McMahon, the Republi-
can candidate for a Senate seat in
Connecticut, was open with her
criticism.
I disagree with Governor
Romneys insinuation that 47 per-
cent of Americans believe they are
victims who must depend on the
government for their care, she
said in a statement posted to her
website.
Still, with high-profle presi-
dential debates and seven weeks
of campaigning ahead, others said
those concerns were overstated.
I dont expect the negative
headlines of this week will be what
were talking about a week from
now, said Fergus Cullen, the for-
mer Republican state chairman in
New Hampshire and a close ally of
Romney.
Like other Republicans, he said,
Its incumbent on the Romney
campaign to make it (the election)
about Obamas handling of the
economy.
Top Republicans in Congress
volunteered no reaction to Rom-
neys remarks just as they re-
frained from commenting a week
ago when he issued a statement
that inaccurately accused the
Obama administration of giving
comfort to demonstrators afer
they breached the U.S. Embassy
in Cairo.
Supporters grow
critical of Romney

LAGOS, Nigeria Despite
all its cutting-edge technology,
Google Inc. has turned to the
humble text message to break into
Nigerias booming economy.
The search engine has started
a service in Nigeria, as well as in
Ghana and Kenya, which enables
mobile phone users to access
emails through text messaging.
That comes as Googles office
in Lagos has begun working with
small business owners in this
nation of more than 160 million
people, bringing more than 25,000
businesses online over the past
year.
Googles choice of using text
messages to reach consumers
highlights the challenges of doing
business in Africas most popu-
lous nation. There is money to be
made, but most people rarely have
access to electricity, let alone the
Internet, and a $20 mobile phone
is as close as many will ever come
to owning a computer.
We dont want to just come
in and start looking for how to
generate profit, said Affiong
Osuchukwu, Googles Nigeria
marketing manager. We consid-
er (sub-Saharan Africa) to be an
investment region. We know we
have to invest resources and time
to develop the market in order for
the market to become valuable to
us in a way that we can do busi-
ness.
Google makes tens of billions
of dollars a year from advertising,
much of it coming from simple
text ads that pop up next to its
search results. But such ads are
rarely relevant to Nigerians look-
ing for goods and services in their
neighborhoods. Only a fraction
of business owners have websites,
and those that do rarely offer con-
sumers many services online.
Google Nigeria is trying to
develop the ecosystem by mak-
ing the Internet part of more peo-
ples lives, Osuchukwu said. Its
most recent push came in July
as the company began advertis-
ing its text message email service,
which allows users to receive their
emails through Gmail for free as
text messages. Users also can reply
to the emails for only the cost
of sending a text message. They
also can access local classified ads
hosted by Google.
More than half of the 44 mil-
lion people who use the Internet
in Nigeria access the web through
smartphones, according to
International Telecommunications
Union, but that represents only a
fraction of mobile phone users in
Nigeria.

KABUL, Afghanistan NATOs
decision to restrict operations with
small Afghan forces to mitigate
the threat of insider attacks means
fewer boots on patrols and a shift
in how the U.S.-led coalition will
fight the war in Afghanistan.
Its unclear whether the coali-
tions exit strategy can succeed with
less partnering with Afghan police-
men and soldiers, who are slated to
take over for foreign combat troops
by the end of 2014, just 27 months
from now.
What is clear is that the mantra
that Afghans and coalition forces
are fighting the Taliban shoulder
to shoulder is looking more and
more like theyre standing at arms
length.
Earlier this year, the U.S. military
stopped training about 1,000 mem-
bers of the Afghan Local Police, a
controversial network of village-
defense units. U.S. commanders
have assigned some troops to be
guardian angels who watch over
their comrades in interactions with
Afghan forces and even as they
sleep.
U.S. officials also recently
ordered American troops to carry
loaded weapons at all times in
Afghanistan, even when they are
on their bases.
Until now, coalition troops rou-
tinely conducted operations such
as patrolling or manning outposts
with small units of their Afghan
counterparts.
MINSK, Belarus (AP) An
Associated Press photographer
was beaten and briefly detained
Tuesday by plainclothes security
officers in the Belarusian capital.
Sergei Grits was among eight
journalists covering a protest by
four opposition activists calling
for a boycott of this weekends par-
liamentary election when plain-
clothes security officers attacked
them in downtown Minsk.
Grits said one of the men
grabbed him by the neck from
behind, while another punched
him in the eye, breaking his glass-
es and leaving a gash. They then
pushed the journalists into a van
without license plates and drove
them to a police station, where
they were held for two hours before
being released without charges or
explanation, Grits said.
Such violence by police against
a journalist peacefully going about
his work is unacceptable and must
be protested in the strongest possi-
ble terms, said John Daniszewski,
APs senior managing editor for
international news.

At this point in the Resident
Evil flm franchise, theres no
reason to expect the movies to be
anything other than completely
ridiculous.
Whereas the video games pro-
vide engrossing narratives, heart-
pounding thrills and some of the
most intense scares in gaming,
the cinematic adaptations only
tried to replicate that feeling in
the frst installment. Each suc-
cessive entry grew increasingly
more over-the-top and mind-
lessly action-oriented.
But you know what? Despite
the fact that Resident Evil: Retri-
bution is dumber than any of its
many zombies whose brains get
splattered onto the wall, I have to
admit that I had a pretty decent
time watching badass babe Milla
Jovovich kick all sorts of undead
butt again.
Retribution picks up ex-
actly where the last movie lef
of, opening with an explosive,
entrancing set piece involving
dozens of helicopters attacking
Alice (Jovovich) and crew on-
board a sea barge, all unfolding
in reverse slow-motion. A sur-
prisingly graceful prologue then
follows, giving viewers a neces-
sary refresher on the convoluted
plot of this series, before jumping
back into zombie mayhem.
Jovovich gets several scenes to
show of her acrobatic and melee
skills before Ada Wong (Li Bing-
bing) arrives, and the flm begins
to succumb to what have always
been the weaknesses of this se-
ries groan-worthy dialogue,
stilted acting and a silly plot. Like
the last movie, clones also fgure
into the story, allowing some pre-
viously killed characters (most
notably Michelle Rodriguez and
Oded Fehr) to return.
Te rest of the journey re-
volves around Alice and Ada
meeting up with an extraction
team to escape and destroy the
evil Umbrella Corporations base
of operations, traveling through
its diferent levels and fghting
what are essentially boss battles
along the way.
When Retribution sticks to
playing like a video game, its an
extremely dumb, but nonetheless
fun, spectacle of violence and de-
struction. Its no secret writer/di-
rector Paul W.S. Anderson values
style far more than substance,
and he certainly directs the ac-
tion scenes with plenty of cool,
extreme fair especially in the
vivid 3-D. Enemies are killed
with a barrage of slo-mo bullets
,and subtlety is never part of the
equation.
Dont get me wrong: Tis is
most certainly a bad flm, but its
guilty pleasure entertainment.
Fans of this series like these mov-
ies because they can shut down
their brains for 90 minutes, watch
an outrageous display of zom-
bie action eye candy, a few jump
scares and Milla Jovovich being
awesome. And once in awhile,
thats exactly what you need.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Two-
time Olympic gold medalist
snowboarder Shaun White faces
charges of public intoxication and
vandalism, accused of drunkenly
destroying a phone at a Nashville
hotel and ending up in the hospi-
tal afer he hit his head.
Ofcers responded to the Loews
Vanderbilt Hotel at 2 a.m. Sunday
afer a drunken man identifed as
the 26-year-old White pulled a fre
alarm, forcing the hotel to evacu-
ate all guests. An employee also
reported seeing White destroy a
hotel phone.
White tried to leave the hotel
in a cab before being stopped by
a hotel guest who told the driver
that police had been called. Ac-
cording to police, White kicked at
the man before running away. Te
man chased him and they collided
when White turned around. White,
who is also one of the worlds top
skateboarders, fell back and hit his
head against a fence, police said.
White, who appeared to be
drunk, was given the opportu-
nity to sign misdemeanor cita-
tions and refused, police said. A
spokeswoman for Baptist Hospital
said White was treated there and
released on Monday before being
arrested and booked by police. A
mug shot released by police shows
White with a black eye.
White was released by police
late Monday afernoon on his own
recognizance. His court date was
set for Oct. 10.

I
n college few things are
absolutely certain. There are
always questions of whether
or not well graduate on time,
where well sign our next lease
and if our next gas fill-up will be
an overdraft.
But when elements of our rela-
tionships become certain like
Orange Leaf and trashy TV on
Monday nights, playing trivia on
Wednesday nights and 60 cent
boneless wings at Buffalo Wild
Wings on Thursday nights the
monotony of it all can make us
feel very uncertain about the
quality of our dating lives.
My weekly schedule has
become totally predictable since
I started teaching middle school
English and communications.
The details of my weeks in my
classroom vary, but what doesnt
change is how tired I am when its
all over each Friday afternoon.
The weekend, which was once
a time of trekking downtown to
whatever bar that boasted the
best drinks, had become reduced
to me surfing YouTube, invit-
ing my boyfriend over to eat ice
cream in bed and finally falling
asleep at 11 p.m. I was so tired
that I didnt want to do anything
else, but eventually my boredom
with my relationship left me
dying for a solution.
Then I found the simplest
answer to my biggest relationship
problem: stop making excuses
and do stuff.
That particular piece of advice
is easier said than done, especially
if you fall victim to laziness. But
boredom can be disastrous. It
may seem small, but it can wreak
serious havoc on our relation-
ships.
According to a Good In Bed
survey, boredom can be the single
biggest threat to an otherwise
solid relationship. Sex expert Ian
Kerner, a sexuality counselor and
founder of Good In Bed, who
helped analyze the study, said
that boredom is basically like
an attack on our relationships
immune system.
And it can spread quickly if
its ignored. Boredom can lead
us to get a wandering eye or nix
the relationship altogether. But
often we become bored in our
relationships because we become
bored with our lives. In this way
monotony gets the best of us and
disguises itself in the form of a
decaying relationship.
If we dont step carefully,
our relationships as we know
it can end from this seemingly
simple problem, and the issue can
become chronic in our next ones
if we dont recognize the root of
the conflict. If we arent careful
about determining the real issue
at hand, we could end up making
a choice thats fatal to one of the
best relationships in our lives.
Sometimes our partners really
are at fault. But in reality, they
usually arent. Even if theyre not,
the consequence (like a breakup)
is still the same, and can leave
them stunned with unanswered
questions about what went
wrong. And when the relation-
ship isnt actually the problem, it
can leave us with little but a
hurt heart.
For the sake of our relation-
ships when life becomes routine,
we need to break the cycle and
continue to maintain the fresh
feeling of them before they grow
fatally stale.
If we dont act fast, the bore-
dom virus is sure to spread, and
the healthy heartbeat that once
was in our relationships will soon
be flatlining. But at least when it
comes to boredom in dating, the
problem is easy to fix by simply
going out and participating in
society.
And when we learn to resusci-
tate dying relationships as easily
as that, we can finally keep our
great loves alive.

A
few months ago, I was
spending time with
my five-year-old niece,
along with one of her uncles.
Im not quite sure how the con-
versation started, but at some
point we were discussing things
my niece could be when she
grows up. Her uncle started
jokingly telling her that one of
the options (it might have been
a lion tamer) was not the best
idea. However, rather than let
it slide, my niece turned to him,
replying with indigence vividly
sharp in her voice, hand on her
hip, I decide my own life!
As my niece proudly declared
herself in charge of her own
fate, I grinned and high-fived
her like the good feminist aunt I
am. But, I couldnt help but feel
a bit of sadness along with my
pride. See, when my niece says
I decide my own life, even
though every fiber of my being
wants to tell her Yes, youre
absolutely right, of courseI
cant nod along with 100 percent
honesty.
My niece believes her rights
for bodily autonomy are par for
the course in what she sees as
a fair world. Not having a say
in her own life is a bewilder-
ing concept for her to wrap her
head around. My niece believes
she should have choices, and get
to make those choices, whether
its choosing her lunch or choos-
ing her future career.
However, the notion that my
niece should be powerless in her
own life is not at all bewildering
to an alarming number of peo-
ple. In fact, the notion that peo-
ple, particularly young people,
and particularly young people
with the capability to become
pregnant, should feel powerless
in their own lives is the driving
factor behind an entire political
movement.
This scares me. No scratch
thatthis terrifies me.
According to the American
Pregnancy Association, 49 per-
cent of all pregnancies are unin-
tended, and the rate of unin-
tended pregnancy is particu-
larly high among 18 to 24-year-
oldsthe age of the typical KU
student. An age group my niece
will belong to when she goes
to KU or Harvard (she hasnt
decided which yet).
There is a very real possibil-
ity that entities will attempt to
take the power of I decide my
own life away from my niece.
She may be raped. She may be
lied to by her doctor about her
health and body. She may be
told she has no right to a deci-
sion about her body, that she
is not an authority on her own
life, that she in fact cannot, and
should not be able to say, I
decide my own life.
I want her to be able to
decide.
This is the root of the pro-
choice movement. This is my
niece, someday, if she happens
to have an unplanned pregnan-
cy, being able to decide her own
life. This is my niece, or your
niece, or sister, mother, friend,
or you, me, or any of the people
whose body has the capability
to become pregnant, being able
to say I decide my own life.
This is about having options,
and having access to those
options; about deciding to end a
pregnancy, or about continuing
with a pregnancy and choosing
adoption, or about continuing
with a pregnancy and being a
parent.
The pro-choice movement is
not the pro-abortion movement.
The pro-choice movement is
the you decide your own life
movement. Having options
available to a person, and allow-
ing a person to choose the
option that is best for them, and
their current and future family?
That is choice.
My niece is five years old.
She was born five years ago
because of an unplanned preg-
nancy when my sister was 19
years old, younger than I am
now; the age of a significant
amount of students on campus.
My sister, when discovering
she was pregnant, looked at her
options: abortion, adoption, or
parenthood. She decided, for
her own personal and unique
circumstances, that parenthood
was the best option for her. She
had the means to be able to do
this unlike many others, which
makes her very lucky and grate-
ful because being a parent has
worked out for her. It doesnt
for everyone.
I want my niece, and all those
with the capability to become
pregnant, to be able to pick the
best option when it comes to a
decision that literally can decide
the path your life takes. And I
want my niece, and us all, to say,
I decide my own life.

are other ways to get your point across,
folks.
I am still waiting for the day when all
the outfts I repin on Pinterest will just

Do people really have a problem with
kissing and holding hands? I thought
we were in college now, not middle
school. Grow up, please.
Did anyone else not realize right
away that a poke-fanatic is someone
who loves pokemon? Sad poke-fanatic.
Knowing how to clap along with
the fght songs properly should be
a requirement to be at KU. Editors
note: If you want, like, 5 students on
campus. Sure.
If she knows what Ctrl+F is, shes too
smart for you, bro.
Im not lazy... peeing outside is
refreshing.
It would be interesting if KU had its
own version of TMZ.
The majority of men at KU are a lot
like our squirrels: hairy, scary and all
about their nuts.
T
he reality television show
on MTV, The Real
World, was the start of
the reality TV phenomenon of
our generation, but since 2000,
reality TV has exploded into all
of our living rooms and its a
dirty mess.
According to the Journal of
Consumer Research, people
watch reality TV for a number
of reasons and those reasons
include: imagining yourself as
the participant, wanting to be
surprised or thrilled by an out-
come of the show and having a
voyeuristic need to watch people.
It has always been a strange
concept to me to sit down and
watch somebody else live his or
her own life. Quite honestly, Im
more concerned with issues that
affect my life. I know, boring.
Of course I still get in a little
movie time or get my fix of Its
Always Sunny in Philadelphia
every now and then.
Everyones preference is
different and our reasons for
watching what we watch is as
unique as we are, but recent sta-
tistics of viewers that tuned into
the Republican and Democratic
National Conventions might
be a strong argument for what
people prefer to watch or where
the future of our programming
is headed.
According to ABC News, the
Republican National Convention
brought in 1.2 million viewers
on Foxs Aug. 29 coverage of
the convention while 2.9 mil-
lion viewers were more partial
to watching TLCs Honey Boo
Boo. I might not even have
to explain what type of show
Honey Boo Boo is but just
close your eyes, place yourself
in rural Georgia, imagine a
stay-at-home mom known as
The Coupon Queen, a little
girl bouncing off the walls, lots
of sugar, and siblings with
nicknames like Pumpkin
and Chubbs. And if the mere
description doesnt give you a
headache, then youre one of
millions that would find this
show interesting.
Since 2008, ratings for both
parties conventions were down
by millions and that could be
in part to the 89 percent of
Americans that say they dont
trust the government that was
reported by the New York Times,
or the increased millions that
tune into reality TV to watch
real people with real issues.
I cant argue there because with
quotes from Mitt Romney defin-
ing the middle class income
as a range from $200,000 to
$250,000, its evident that if
we want to tackle real issues
then we need to start with real
people.
Its clear that reality TV isnt
going anywhere. The ratings
are continually increasing and
its a trend that even cable news
channels are finding attractive.
CNN has been losing ratings and
a late-night roundtable seems
to be their solution. Im imag-
ining Carson Daly, Anderson
Cooper, Katie Couric and Wolf
Blitzer talking about the newest
Flo Rida song, a recap of what
happened on Honey Boo Boo
for the week and foods to make
you last longer during sex. I
guess people are getting tired of
staying up on current events or
maybe these topics are the new
current events.
I might tune in to the next
Honey Boo Boo to see what
all the hype is about but the
moment I see a White House
Reality TV show with the
President confessing how he
and Biden drank too much at
a Fundraiser and ended up in
Vegas, Im giving away my televi-
sion.

Prisoner granted sex change
ASSocIAtED PRESS
BOSTON A convicted mur-
derer in Massachusetts says a judges
decision to grant her request for
sex-reassignment surgery is the
right thing to do.
U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf
ruled this month that the surgery
is the only adequate treatment for
Michelle Kosileks gender-identity
disorder, a condition he said is a
serious medical need. The ruling
marks the first time a judge has
ordered prison officials to provide
sex-reassignment surgery.
Wolf s ruling prompted an out-
cry among some legislative leaders,
who say Kosilek isnt entitled to the
taxpayer-funded surgery.
Kosilek said she cried tears of
relief after learning of the judges
ruling. Kosilek has waged a
decades-long battle to complete the
transformation from a man into a
woman.
This is who I am. My essence
is female, Kosilek told The
Associated Press in a recent tele-
phone interview from prison.
To those who dont understand
gender-identity disorder, I under-
stand that there is a reluctance to
even think about this in a serious
vein because to the average person
who is uninformed, it may be truly
bizarre, but this is who I am. This
is who I have always been.
Kosilek was named Robert when
married to Cheryl Kosilek and con-
victed of killing her in 1990.
She said she endured decades of
pain while growing up with a boys
body but feeling like she was a girl
and later fighting to get sex-reas-
signment surgery. She has received
female hormones and lives as a
woman in an all-male prison in
Norfolk.
Kosilek said she first began ask-
ing for the surgery while awaiting
trial in the early 1990s but was
turned down by county jail offi-
cials, even after she offered to pay
for it herself. She filed her first law-
suit against the state Department
of Correction in 2000. Two years
later, Wolf ruled that Kosilek was
entitled to treatment for gender-
identity disorder but stopped short
of ordering surgery.
Kosilek sued again in 2005,
arguing that surgery was a medical
necessity.

Te fourth foor of the Kansas


Union is changing this semester.
Kaplan Test Prep and the Herb
Harris Student Computing Lab
moved to the third foor, and Me-
dia Crossroads, a new venture by
the University, the journalism
school and the Kansas Union, has
taken the empty space.
Media Crossroads, which will
open later this week or early next
week, is a room containing various
types of technology available to
students, faculty and the Lawrence
community. It includes equipment
for television and radio, a full stu-
dio and a presence from student
media outlets such as KUJH-TV,
KJHK and the University Daily
Kansan.
Its undefned, and it can be
whatever students, faculty or the
larger community want it to be,
said Scott Reinardy, associate pro-
fessor in the journalism school
and interim director of Media
Crossroads. Its an opportunity to
come in and create media.
Construction on joining the
two rooms was completed last
week. Te frst event in Media
Crossroads took place Saturday
morning, when KJHK broadcast-
ed a live football pregame show
from the space. Reinardy said that
KUJH and KJHK could run live
programs out of the room for ev-
ery home football and basketball
game.
Although Reinardy expects
journalism students to use the
space, he said Media Crossroads is
a service for the University, and it
could be used by all students and
staf. He said one goal is to have
Media Crossroads put on one big
event for the public every day.
Te ideas that come to us are
unending, Reinardy said. Its go-
ing to open itself up to a lot of dif-
ferent opportunities.
Tere are already several ideas
that have been put forth. One is
to teach senior citizens how to
use some of the equipment to tell
their own stories. Another is to
do something similar to National
Public Radios StoryCorps, where
students and faculty broadcast
their own stories over the radio.
Te ofcial grand opening of
Media Crossroads is scheduled
for 10 a.m. on Oct. 27, the day of
homecoming. Staf will be avail-
able in the space to assist with us-
ing the technology.

Tempers fare as Wescoe mans
preaching reaches fever pitch
Campus
union welcomes media Crossroads
Campus
KU Ofce of Public Safety of-
cers responded to an incident on
Wescoe Beach Tuesday afernoon.
Clarence Bro Cope said he
had been preaching for about
three hours when a crowd of stu-
dents began to argue with him.
Cope said the preaching became
tumultuous afer some students
became upset by his statement to
completely stop sinning.
I said I stopped sinning, and
that generally sends them of in
another tirade, he said.
Cope, who has been preaching
on the University campus for 35
years, is an associate of Campus
Ministries USA. He said he was
not associated with the anti-abor-
tion group that had a display set
up near him.
James Hoyt, a freshman from
Haviland, Kan., saw Cope preach-
ing around 2:30 p.m. He said a
large crowd had gathered around
Cope. Some were debating with
him, others were yelling names at
him.
Even some of the Christians in
the group were telling him what he
was saying is wrong, Hoyt said.
He said he lef to go to class,
but Cope was still preaching to a
small group of people when he re-
turned.
At the time of interview, Cap-
tain Schuyler Bailey of KU Public
Safety, was unable to comment on
the incident.

The Kansas mens golf team
finished 10th at the Golfweek
Conference Challenge in
Burlington, Iowa.
Chris Gilbert led the Jayhawks,
finishing tied for 13th with a
three-round total score of 219 on
a course that emphasized keeping
tee shots in the fairway.
He played solid again this
week, coach Jamie Bermel said.
He made a couple of bad swings
that cost dearly, but he played sol-
idly, and hopefully next week will
be even better for him.
Gilbert managed the Spirit
Hollow Golf Course while record-
ing respectable scores.
The rough was really thick,
Bermel said. It had some eleva-
tion change and some long holes.
You really had to drive your ball in
the fairway, and if you didnt you
were in deep rough. It was a great
test of golf.
Sophomore transfer Stan
Gautier, from Paris, France, also
played well for the Jayhawks, fin-
ishing tied for 31st with a three-
round total of 225.
Bermel said Gautier played with
boosted confidence as he drasti-
cally improved putting the ball.
Gautier shot a 72 in a windy sec-
ond round, a score Bermel said
was impressive considering the
conditions.
Dylan McClure finished tied for
41st with a score of 227 followed
by Ryley Haas in a tie for 68th
with a score of 237. Bryce Brown
completed the lineup tied for 70th
with a 238.
The Jayhawks are focusing
on limiting simple mistakes this
week.
We just have to eliminate
the silly mistakes, Bermel said.
We hit balls out of bounds or
three putt in situations that we
shouldnt. These are mental errors
that we have to correct.
The Jayhawks look to continue
their steady improvement next
week in Erie, Colo. at the Mark
Simpson Colorado Invitational.
We only had a few days to
work on some things this week,
Bermel said. I thought we did
some things better. We still have
a long way to go, but were on the
right track.

Dezmon Briscoe: Briscoe
was claimed off waivers by the
Washington Redskins after play-
ing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
during the past two seasons.
Briscoe, who has seven career
touchdown receptions, has yet to
record a catch in the 2012 season
and has only been targeted once.
Anthony Collins: Collins is in
fifth season with the Cincinnati
Bengals and is currently listed
as the teams backup at left tack-
le behind Andrew Whitworth.
Collins did not play in either of
the Bengals first two games of
the 2012 season.
Chris Harris: Harris is in his
second season with the Denver
Broncos and is currently the
teams backup at right corner-
back behind Tracy Porter. Harris
had four tackles in the Broncos
first game of the 2012 season
against the Steelers, but sat out
the teams last game on Monday
night against the Atlanta Falcons
with an ankle injury.
Steven Johnson: Johnson is in
his first season with the Denver
Broncos after making the team
as an undrafted free agent this
offseason. Johnson is currently
listed as the Broncos backup at
middle linebacker behind Joe
Mays. The linebacker had an
excellent preseason as he led the
Broncos with 16 tackles and also
had a sack and a forced fumble.
Johnson has earned playing time
on the special teams unit in the
Broncos first two games of the
2012 season
Mike Rivera: After spending
the majority of his first three
seasons on practice squads,
Rivera made the New England
Patriots 53-man roster this year.
After leading the team with 18
tackles during the preseason,
Rivera is currently listed as the
teams backup at middle line-
backer behind Brandon Spikes.
Before signing with the Patriots,
Rivera has spent time with the
Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears,
Tennessee Titans and Green Bay
Packers. Rivera has appeared in
the Patriots first two games of
the 2012 season, but he has yet to
make a tackle or intercept a pass.
Darrell Stuckey: Stuckey is cur-
rently the San Diego Chargers
backup at free safety behind Eric
Weddle and plays mostly on spe-
cial teams. The safety is in his
third NFL season and has made
four tackles through the unde-
feated Chargers first two games.
Aqib Talib: Talib is in his
fifth season with the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers and is currently the
starting left cornerback. Talib has
17 career interceptions. Through
the first two games of the 2012
season, Talib has 11 tackles
and has defended five passes.
Additionally, he blocked a punt
in the season opener against the
Carolina Panthers.

Update on Jayhawks in NFl
Kansas womens golf finished
11th in the Dale McNamara invi-
tational in Broken Arrow, Okla. at
the Golf Club of Oklahoma.
The Jayhawks struggled in the
final round with a total team score
of 312.
In the first two rounds, we had
a lot of birdies, coach Erin ONeil
said. In the last round, we hit a lot
of shots that got us in trouble and
three putted more than I would
like. Its the culmination of those
two things that caused us to drop.
The course at the Golf Club of
Oklahoma provided a solid stage
for the tournament.
It was a great course, a great
challenge, but fair, ONeil said.
You definitely had to get off the
tee well. If you didnt do that, it had
pretty long rough, so bogey was
pretty likely, if not double if your
short game was off.
A pair of veterans led the way
for the Jayhawks. Thanuttra
Boonraksasat tied for 24th with
a total three-round score of 223.
Meghan Potee tied for 30th with
a 226.
They both did a good job of
hanging in there when they had
a few bad holes. I just think they,
and the team, didnt make their
best decisions on the way in. Its
really what caused us to drop,
ONeil said.
Yupaporn Kawinpakorn finished
40th with a three-round score of
229. Gabby DiMarco tied for 50th
place with a 232, while Audrey
Yowell completed the lineup tied
for 59th with a 235.
The team will be working on
making decisions in pressure situa-
tions in practice this week.
Were planning on playing
Thursday and Friday to try to
recreate pressure situations and
some trouble shots, ONeil said.
Hopefully this will help show
them that when they get in a little
trouble, they should just get out of
the situation rather than try to gain
it all back in one shot.
The Jayhawks advance to their
home course at the Marilynn Smith
Sunflower Invitational next Monday
at Alvamar Country Club.
We were a different team in
that first round than we were all
of last year. I know we didnt finish
up like we wouldve liked, but I am
very encouraged by what I saw,
ONeil said.

The Kansas volleyball team
will host the Creighton Bluejays
Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in their
final match before conference play
begins.
The Bluejays enter the match,
which will be televised on Metro
Sports, with a 10-1 record, and
they are already 2-0 in the Missouri
Valley Conference. Their only loss
came to then No. 21 Kansas State
on Sept. 1. Since then, Creighton
has won the past six games.
Coach Ray Bechard compared
Creighton to last weeks match up
against Notre Dame.
I think theyll be similar in
physicality, Bechard said.
Bechard said it will be important
to swing aggressively on target to
avoid extending the rally.
While Creighton enters the
match with a six-game winning
streak, the Jayhawks have been just
as impressive recently. Before their
loss to Notre Dame last Sunday, the
Jayhawks tied the fourth-longest
streak in school history with nine
straight wins. The streak included a
home victory against Tulsa, whom
Creighton also defeated during
their current winning streak.
The match features two teams
near the top of their respective
conferences in many major statis-
tical categories. Kansas leads the
Big 12 with 14.6 kills per set, 13.8
assists per set and 16 digs per set.
Creighton leads the Missouri Valley
Conference with three blocks per
set. They also rank second in their
conference with a .258 hitting per-
centage. Individually, Creightons
sophomore middle blocker Kelli
Browning leads the conference
with 1.8 blocks per set.
Against Notre Dame last Sunday,
Kansas senior middle blocker
Tayler Tolefree said the Fighting
Irish did a good job around the
net taking away the shots Kansas
wanted to make. She said that will
probably be another key in the
match versus the Bluejays.
They take away what we want
to do, and were trying to take away
what they want to do, Tolefree
said. Its just who can find a dif-
ferent way to score and put points
up.
Bechard said his team scheduled
a tough non-conference season
to help them prepare for confer-
ence play, and this match will be
one of those tough tests. Besides
Tulsa, which has received votes in
the American Volleyball Coaches
Association Top-25 Poll, Creighton
also defeated Syracuse, Missouri
State and Wichita State.
Freshman outside hitter Tiana
Dockery said the Jayhawks didnt
come out with the proper mind-
set against Notre Dame. That is
something theyll have fixed for
Creighton, she said.
Going out in the first game
knowing that OK, we are going to
win this game, Dockery said. Just
starting the game off good and fin-
ishing the game off good and not
letting down in between.

Reds manager has 3,000th game
CHICAGO Dusty Baker
reached another milestone in his
long major league career Tuesday
night when he managed his 3,000th
game, guiding the Cincinnati Reds
against one of his former teams, the
Chicago Cubs.
Im just glad that out of the 3,000
games, I won more than weve lost,
said the 63-year-old Baker, who
had a 1,572-1,426 record before
Tuesdays game and also managed
one tie game in 2002.
Thats a lot of games. Thats
not as many as some, but I still
got quite a few games left in me,
he said.
At 19th on the career list, Baker
isnt even halfway to Connie Mack.
Mack is tops at 7,755 games man-
aged.
Baker began his manageri-
al career in 1993 with the San
Francisco Giants and led them to
the World Series in his final season
there in 2002.
He took over the Cubs in 2003
and got them within five outs of
the World Series before a monu-
mental collapse against the Florida
Marlins in the NL championship
series. Following a 66-win season
in 2006, Chicago did not renew his
contract. But Baker did have more
managing in him. Since 2008, hes
been running the Reds and has
Cincinnati in position to win its
second NL Central title in three
years.
The 63-year-old Baker began his
playing career in 1968 with Atlanta
when he was 19 years old and
finished up in 1986. He played in
2,039 games and 40 more in the
playoffs.
Things have gone fairly well. I
played a long time, Ive managed
probably equal or longer than I
played and I didnt have any idea I
was going to be doing this after my
playing days, said Baker, adding
that hed done some stock broker-
ing before joining the Giants.
Baker was a hailed as a savior
when he first came to Chicago as the
Cubs were poised to end a World
Series championship drought that
has now reached 104 years. But
his final season was anything but
pleasant and hes often been booed
on his return to Wrigley Field,
some fans forgetting perhaps that
he got the Cubs as close to the
World Series as any manager has
since their last appearance in 1945.
The Reds magic number over
the St. Louis Cardinals for win-
ning the division was five before
Tuesday night.
Asked if it could be extra satisfy-
ing to clinch at Wrigley, Baker said
not really.
I thought of it a few days ago,
he said. Our goal is just win. I
dont care where we clinch it at
really. I just want to clinch it.

Biased replacement offcials obstruct game integrity
MccLAtchY tRIBUNE
L
arry Chipper Jones plans
to retire at the end of this
season, but he is doing
something many cannot in the
twilight of their playing career
he is still performing at a high
level.
The switch hitter will retire
with eight All-Star game appear-
ances, two Silver Sluggers, a
batting title and an MVP award.
Jones also won a World Series
in 1995, but his most impressive
accomplishment in my book is his
ability to leave baseball while he is
still on top. Too often players will
linger around the game until they
are forced to retire because they
no longer can compete with the
younger league members.
It was sad hearing the stories of
Ken Griffey Jr. failing to produce
and even falling asleep in the
dugout during his final year in
the league. Seeing a star dimin-
ish so greatly is one of the hard-
est parts of being a sports fan,
making Joness retirement-tour-
turned-victory-lap all the more
refreshing.
In 100
games
this year,
Jones is
batting
.297 with
14 home
runs and
60 RBI,
lead-
ing the
Atlanta
Braves to an 84-63 record and
possession of a Wild Card spot.
Since he entered the league in
1993, Jones has been the gold
standard for third basemen, and
the end of this season will mark
the end of one of the greatest
careers in the history of the game.
nHL at croSSroadS
As a Minnesotan, I can safely
say hockey is in my blood. I never
played organized hockey, but my
childhood winters consisted of
skating lessons, pond hockey and
following the Minnesota Wild.
Now, before perhaps the most
anticipated season in the his-
tory of the young
franchise, the
NHL has locked
out the players.
This is incred-
ibly deflating to
a fan base that
was eager to see
the newly-signed
stars Zach Parise
and Ryan Suter.
Now, as play-
ers and owners fight to start the
season and teams struggle to keep
their season ticket holders, the
fans are left puzzled, frustrated
and without hockey.
The NHL had the opportu-
nity to separate itself from the
NFL and NBA, which both went
through long-winded work
stoppages before last season,
and show fans that the league
really cares. They squandered this
chance by not reaching an agree-
ment before the midnight dead-
line on Saturday.
NHL commissioner Gary
Bettman still has the opportu-
nity to save face and ensure no
regular season games are
missed. The NBA suffered
in TV ratings during the
playoffs last year after its
lockout took up half the
season while the NHL
saw a significant uptick in
viewers during the Stanley
Cup playoffs. The NHL
risks losing the momen-
tum it gained for atten-
tion against its biggest
rival and needs to make
amends with an angry fan
base by coming to an agree-
ment before any games are
lost.

Though the Tigers stand three
games out of the American
League Central Division lead
after their 5-4 loss to the Chicago
White Sox, Miguel Cabrera has
carried the team to contention
all year long. The Tigers right-
handed third baseman leads the
American League in average, RBI
and slugging percentage and is
fifth in home runs.
Cabrera moved from first base
to third base this season after
the Tigers signed the left-handed
slugger Prince Fielder and has
still managed to put up an incred-
ible offensive performance.
The Tigers pitching staff has
been hard to predict this season
and their defense has been shaky
at best. Without their vaunted
offense, lead by the 7-time all-star
from Venezuela, the Tigers would
not be in the picture for playoffs.

If there is one word the NFL likes
to hold above all others, it is integri-
ty. All of the players and employees
throughout the league understand
that. So Mathias Kiwanuka likely
knew exactly where he was thrust-
ing the dagger when he weighed in
on the impact that the replacement
ofcials are having on the sport
through two weeks of work.
Teres no doubt the integrity of
the game has been compromised,
Kiwanuka said.
Tat seems to sum up the grow-
ing sentiment not only in the Gi-
ants locker room but also around
the league. As the Giants prepare
for their game Tursday night
against the Carolina Panthers, they
know that the two teams will not
be the only ones under the micro-
scope of a national broadcast.
Te ofcials, too, will be subject
to great scrutiny and likely a topic
of conversation, just as they were
Tuesday following a prime-time
game between the Broncos and the
Falcons on Monday in which they
very nearly lost control and cer-
tainly impacted the fow of a game
that trickled into Tuesday Morning
Football.
Players and coaches at frst
played along, mostly toeing the
company line of support for the re-
placements. But two weeks in, the
ofcials are ofcially a problem.
Im not necessarily mad at the
replacement ofcials, Justin Tuck
said. Im more upset with the NFL
for not handling this and taking
care of this in due time, I guess. I
think with all the success that this
league is having, you dont want
this to be a damper.
Some of the issues that have
popped up are almost punch lines,
such as the claim by Eagles running
back LeSean McCoy in a radio in-
terview Monday.
Ill be honest, McCoy told
94WIP, theyre like fans. One of
the refs was talking about his fan-
tasy team, like: McCoy, come on, I
need you for my fantasy.
Ten theres Brian Stropolo, a
replacement side judge, who was
removed from working Sundays
Saints-Panthers game because his
Facebook page included pictures of
him decked out in Saints gear.
And there are the too-many-to-
count missed calls on holding and
pass interference.
I saw a guy basically walk Vic-
tor Cruz like he was a dog, Gi-
ants safety Kenny Phillips said af-
ter watching the video of the Bucs
game. He had his jersey the whole
way up the feld and they didnt call
anything ... It was bad.
Te league has said the replace-
ment ofcials have made great
strides and are performing admi-
rably under unprecedented scru-
tiny and great pressure.
But not all of the implications of
replacement refs are as silly, cer-
tainly not to the players. Injuries
are becoming a major concern for
the players, particularly when it
comes to enforcing hits on defense-
less players, something the NFL has
stressed in recent years.
I think its inevitable (that an in-
jury will occur), Kiwanuka said.

Weis a boon

If youre curious to know why
Charlie Weis was hired at Kansas,
it has little to do with this seasons
record and everything to do with
Monday night.
In Mondays final hours,
Andrew Bolton verbally commit-
ted to Kansas according to Rivals.
com. Bolton, a 6-foot-3, 280-
pound defensive end, currently
plays for Hinds Community
College in Mississippi and is a
big time talent big enough
to receive scholarship offers
from Iowa and LSU while being
recruited by Alabama and Ohio
State.
In the football universe,
Alabama, LSU and Ohio State
are equivalent to planets, while
Kansas is merely one of many
meteors hoping to defy odds and
cause damage when it inevitably
hurdles into one of the few plan-
ets.
This is the kind of caliber
player at whom Kansas has never
truly had a chance. This is why
Charlie Weis was brought in.
Bolton wanted to play for Weis,
more than Nick Saban. More
than Les Miles. More than Urban
Meyer.
To be fair, Weis isnt the only
factor in Boltons recruitment.
The Jayhawks linebackers coach
DeMontie Cross was the lead
recruiter for Bolton and should
receive a bundle of the credit as
well.
Still, Weis hired Cross, a for-
mer Missouri football star, who
clearly has had an impact on this
team.
So Cross, Weis and the other
assistants managed to pull off
something that Kansas never does
and pluck a top southern player
out of the south. How?
Even getting Bolton to visit
was a victory for the Jayhawks,
and the victory helped them win
the war that was Boltons recruit-
ment. Its rare for top prospects to
even give Lawrence a chance, but
with names like Weis and defen-
sive coordinator Dave Campo in
charge, the visits will come, and
Lawrence does the rest.
If Weis and Campo can get a
player on campus, they can get
him to sign. Its as simple as that,
which is a very exciting prospect
for Kansas football.
And then theres this pitch
Kansas can sell to recruits that
Alabama cant. That LSU cant.
And neither can Ohio State.
Playing time.
It is no stretch to say that
Bolton will be in Lawrence this
summer because he will be able
to play in the fall, especially as a
JUCO transfer who has a limited
number of years left in his college
career.
Its the one pitch Weis has that
the top schools can not sell.
You see, Weis was not hired for
what he may be able to do this
season. Hell, no coach could have
cleaned up Turner Gills mess in
one season. Kansas may not win
another game in 2012, but you
can be sure they will improve and
continue to do so.
And hey, this week is already
a win.

Halfback Tony Pierson and running back James Sims will provide the Jayhawks with more ofensive options
Caroline Jarmoc hadnt seen
her sister, Patricia, in two years,
because of her sisters career play-
ing professional volleyball in
Portugal. So when assistant coach
Laura Bird Kuhn told Jarmoc
she needed to arrive early for the
Jayhawks match against Tulsa on
Aug. 31, she didnt think much
of it.
Bird called me into the team
room, just saying that she wanted
to have a middles (middle block-
ers) meeting or something that she
made up, Jarmoc said. I was talk-
ing, and then the team room door
opened and in walked my sister. I
was completely shocked.
Jarmoc, a redshirt junior middle
blocker, is originally from Calgary,
Alberta, Canada. Her mom, Zofia,
also came to Lawrence for the
Tulsa match. This made it the first
time in two years Jarmocs mom
had seen her play for Kansas and
the only time for her sister.
Jarmoc comes from a family of
volleyball players. Besides herself
and her sister, Jarmocs brother,
Thomas, has played left side hitter
for a team in Brussels, Belgium for
the past three years. Her parents
still live in Canada, so all five fam-
ily members are rarely together.
Although she doesnt remember
the last time her whole family sat
down together for a meal, she said
it hasnt hurt her bond with her
family.
Distance doesnt really make
us any less close, Jarmoc said.
Its something you have to accept
as you get older, that youre not
going to be this same unit of
five everyday. Were obviously
distracted with our own things
on a regular basis, but its really
nice when we get back togeth-
er and get to see each other.
Jarmoc said she only gets back
to Canada about twice a year, but
she has another family member on
the volleyball team in senior mid-
dle blocker Tayler Tolefree. She
and Jarmoc play the same position,
came to Kansas together in the fall
of 2009 and were assigned to be
roommates their freshman year.
Tolefree said she gained
respect for Jarmoc during their
freshman year because she took
a redshirt year but still worked
hard in practice, even though she
wasnt going to play. Tolefree said
they both helped each other get
through that year, even though
they have opposite personalities.
She was kind of eccentric, not
really the style that
Im used to, Tolefree
said. She has a very
blunt personality,
but shes also secret-
ly compassionate.
Coach Ray Bechard
said he thought
Jarmoc might enter
the Jayhawks lineup
immediately her
freshman year. However, Jarmocs
high school graduation wasnt until
the end of June, so she wasnt able to
move to Lawrence for that summer.
Bechard said Jarmoc wasnt in very
good shape during camp her
late graduation cost her preseason
time with the Jayhawks but
that she became a more mature
player dur-
ing her red-
shirt year.
I
dont know
that Ive
ever seen
a redshirt
year impact
a kid more
just from a
maturation process and getting
stronger and faster, Bechard said.
Part of Jarmocs maturation
during her first season involved
adjusting to American vol-
leyball rules. Although volley-
ball in Canada and the United
States is similar, there were some
rules Jarmoc had to get used to.
The biggest one was when the
ball can touch the ceiling and you
can play on, Jarmoc said.
Thats just a concept to me
that I still cant understand.
The other, more comical,
adjustment was a cultural one.
Tolefree said that instead of say-
ing, take a test, Jarmoc says she
wrote her exam. Jarmoc said
it was another phrase that got
her the most good-natured grief.
I remember when I first
came, and when I didnt under-
stand something the coach said
or I didnt hear what he said,
instead of saying What? Id say
Sorry? because I didnt hear
it, Jarmoc said. Coach B made
fun of me for like a year, he was
always like Sorry, sorry, sorry.
While Jarmoc may have had a
hard time understanding Bechard,
she said many people have a hard
time understanding Jarmoc and
Tolefrees relationship. Although
they are still as dissimilar as they
were when they met, Jarmoc
said their critical thinking and
approaches to different situations
is what makes them so compatible.
We have a very unique rela-
tionship that people have a hard
time explaining, and even our
teammates now still cant really
fathom how our dynamic works,
Jarmoc said. Were just like
a power couple that we just go
around and dominate aspects of
life together.

Junior middle blocker Caroline Jarmoc talks strategy with junior setter erin Mcnorton during the match against the Wyoming
Cowgirls on sept. 8. Kansas defeated Wyoming 3-0 sets, scoring 25-13, 25-21 and 25-18.
Tony Pierson hadnt caught a
football since high school, but
heading into the game against
Texas Christian last Saturday, he
knew that would change he just
didnt know when.
Nearing the end of the first
quarter, an anxious Pierson got
his answer. TCU scored its first
touchdown of the day and coach
Charlie Weis responded by calling
his X-factor play for Kansas.
Pierson lined up in the back-
field but moved swiftly across the
line once the ball was snapped.
Quickly, quarterback Dayne Crist
had an open receiver just past the
Horned Frogs defensive line, and
when he tossed the ball, Piersons
seldom-used hands were there
to meet it. With the ball cradled
safely in his arm and two blockers
ahead of him, Pierson darted up
the field for a 16-yard gain.
It was the first of six catches
the sophomore would have against
TCU, and while he missed out on
a third consecutive 100-yard rush-
ing game, he managed to pick up
99 yards receiving.
It was the last thing TCU coach
Gary Patterson was expecting.
They changed their whole
game plan, Patterson said. They
didnt run one route progression
that they ran the last two ball-
games.
Weis rejoiced in his sneakily
effective scheme after the defeat,
but nixed any thought of Pierson
making more catches down the
road.
Or perhaps he just needed a day
or two to think about it.
On Tuesday, the Kansas offen-
sive coordinator wasnt taking any
options off the table especially
with the return of running back
James Sims from a three-game
DUI suspension.
Hes got good ball skills and
good route running ability for
a running back, Weis said of
Pierson. Ive shifted him out into
the slot, and hes run corner routes
that hes got open and caught. Hes
come out of the backfield and run
a wheel route for about another 25
yards. I kind of like that.
It surely wont catch Northern
Illinois coach Dave Doeren off
guard this Saturday, but Piersons
catching ability opens up options
for another backfield threat: the
returning Sims.
Last season against NIU, Sims
sparked a 14-point Jayhawk come-
back with 159 total yards and two
touchdowns. With the Huskies
defense returning nearly all of its
starters from last season, there
couldnt have been a more favor-
able opponent for Sims to make
his 2012 debut against.
He knows how well he did
against them last year, running
backs coach Reggie Mitchell said.
James is very confident.
That isnt to say Pierson will
be losing any touches. Weis and
Mitchell had planned on giving
Pierson about 15 touches a game
since fall camp, and Mitchell said
thats still the plan but that
didnt include catches.
As long as he gets a chance to
make plays, Pierson could care
less if hes getting the ball in the
backfield or the open field.
It doesnt matter, Pierson said.
I played wide out in high school,
so its natural. As long as the ball
comes to me.
