school, it was on May 1, 1957, that it became Colorado State

Volleyball holds on in Sin City

Authors: Stephanie Lindberg

The only sure thing to bet on Thursday night in Las Vegas was

the CSU women’s volleyball team.

The Rams had good odds going into the UNLV match, riding a

10-game winning streak, and they pulled out a 3-1 win in Sin City.

The Rams moved to 11-1 overall and 3-0 in the Mountain West

Conference, while the Rebels dropped to 7-5 overall and 1-1 in the


The Rams played a powerful UNLV defense that came out hitting in

game one, treating the Rams to a 30-20 loss.

Game two saw a flip of power with the Rams coming on strong in a

30-23 win, and the momentum carried over to the rest of the match.

Despite being down 24-20 in game four, CSU made a comeback for a

30-26 win.

Senior outside hitter Becky Sarauer said a combination of things

that caused the Rams to seem a little off balance, especially on


“It’s a little bit of everything,” Sarauer said. “Travel, the

altitude. It felt a little forced but we found a way to get back

and get a win.”

The Rams seemed surprised by the young talent the Rebels


“They’re very good,” said CSU head coach Tom Hilbert of UNLV. “I

think they’re better than our team expected. They’re better than I


Defense was a shaky point for the Rams, who survived because of

the power of the hitters. Senior middle blockers Bri Frech and

Katie Jo Shirley-Cahoon had 16 and 10 kills, respectively, while

junior right side hitter Dre Downs added 13. Sarauer, who came in

off the bench, was one kill short of her career record with 21 on

the night.

“She saved this game for us,” Hilbert said of Sarauer. “She

added what we needed tonight. I’m disappointed with our defense the

entire night.”

Sarauer attributed her good night to feeling mentally ready.

“I felt really good out there,” Sarauer said. “I didn’t have a

really good scout team. I just knew I had to pick it up if I went

in there.”

Sophomore middle blocker Lauren Miramontes is just one bright

point on a UNLV team that features only one senior in the starting


“They have one kid, Miramontes, that is very physical,” said

Hilbert. “They’re a team of the future. They have a lot of young


Freshman outside hitter Maria Aladjova led the Rebel’s offense

with 20 kills while freshman libero Jada Walker had 27 digs on the


“It was frustrating for sure. They hit anything and everything,”

Sarauer said. “They play very good defense.”

The Rams face San Diego State (0-12, 0-1) in San Diego on

Saturday at 8 p.m.

Game notes: BYU v. CSU weekend

Injury update:

Linebacker Courtney Jones and offensive lineman Clint Oldenburg

are both expected to play after suffering neck “stingers.” They

have been practicing all week. Sophomore Luke Mueller and redshirt

freshman Nathan Pauly will fill in if Jones is unable to play;

sophomore Jassem Redha will replace Oldenburg, if necessary.

Freshmen move up depth chart:

True freshman quarterback Caleb Hanie, who played last week

against Montana State, is listed as backup to Justin Holland.

Sophomore Joey Kearney had been the backup until this past


CSU has also taken true freshman running back Kyle Bell off

redshirt status. He is listed as second on the depth chart behind

starter Uldis Jaunarajs. If Bell plays, he will be the sixth true

freshman who has seen playing time this season with the Rams, the

most ever under Sonny Lubick.

Fireworks part of homecoming festivities:

There will be a small fireworks show at halftime of this

weekend’s game, including the lighting of the Aggie “A” on the side

of the mountain overlooking Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium.

As of Thursday evening, only a few hundred general admission

tickets remained. The student section has sold out.

Conference Awaits the Rams

The Mountain West Conference battle finally hits Fort Collins on

Saturday, as the Brigham Young Cougars visit Sonny Lubick Field at

Hughes Stadium.

The Cougars come into the game at 1-3 with losses at Stanford,

at No. 21 Boise State and versus top-ranked Southern California.

Their lone win came against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in a

barn-burner, 20-17.

John Beck has been the leader of the BYU offense, completing

50-of-85 passes for 736 yards, three touchdowns and three

interceptions. He did not play in the Stanford and USC games after

going down with a shoulder injury in the first half of the Notre

Dame game. Last week he came back against BSU to throw for 390

yards and two touchdowns even though the Cougars lost 28-27 to

Boise State.

“It’s going to be tough; our conference is going to be tough,”

said junior quarterback Justin Holland Saturday after a victory

over Montana State. “BYU beat Notre Dame and played a hell of a

game (Saturday).”

Beck’s main target this year has been junior receiver Todd

Watkins. This year Watkins has caught 24 passes for 509 yards and

two touchdowns. Watkins pulled down nine passes for 211 yards and

one touchdown last week on the famous blue Bronco Field.

“They (BYU) moved the ball well against Boise State,” said

junior wide receiver David Anderson. “So we have our hands full. We

have to have a good week of practice.”

The Rams should have an edge rushing the ball this week. Last

week Cougar running backs combined for only 25 yards versus Boise

State. CSU running back Uldis Jaunarajs carried the ball 17 times

for 79 yards and one touchdown last week versus Montana State.

“BYU is no slack – they almost beat Boise State,” Jaunarajs

said. “We performed all right, but not to the level we need to be


The Rams moved the ball well against the Bobcats, behind

Holland’s 311 passing yards and two touchdowns. Holland’s arm has

been the feature in a Rams offense that is still looking to get the

running game fully on track. He has thrown 94 passes for 1,245

yards and five touchdowns but has been plagued by inconsistency and

untimely turnovers with nine interceptions on the year.

“We just need to work on getting one score, and then just

putting the dagger in,” said sophomore wide receiver Dustin Osborn.

“(We need to) score right after on two consecutive, and three

consecutive drives.”

This season, the Rams will look to win their fourth MWC title,

but it will be tough. For BYU, it is the Cougars’ first test on the

road, and their record is misleading until looking at their

opponents. They are looking for their third MWC title. The game

starts at 8 p.m. Saturday night at Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes

The CSU men’s golf team will take on some of the best collegiate

golfers in the nation when they compete in the William H. Tucker

Invitational tournament today and Saturday in Albuquerque, N.M.

The 19-team field includes No. 4 Wichita State and No. 1 New

Mexico, who will serve as host of the tournament. These rankings

are according to the latest Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index,

which puts CSU at No. 31.

“I don’t really feel more pressure than usual,” said sophomore

Aaron Weston. “If we just play good as a team, then we can give any

school a run for their money.”

Senior John Hayes is leading the young CSU team that will enter

the tournament as an underdog.

“A top-5 finish would make the weekend a great success,” Hayes

said. “I doubt many people are looking at us to contend with these

teams because (Martin Laird) and (Nolan Martin) have graduated, but

this gives us a chance to play well and hopefully surprise some

people. We need to show the other teams that even though we lost

two All-Americans that we can still compete with the best of


This tournament will also give the Rams an opportunity to get an

up-close look at all of their Mountain West Conference rivals

except Utah and Wyoming.

“With most Mountain West teams being there, it’s obviously

important to do well and show them we are one of the best teams in

the conference,” said junior Kevin McAlpine. “It’s a good way to

learn how close we are to being a great team. I think we are close,

and hopefully throughout the year we can improve, and when it comes

to the conference championships in the spring we will be ready to

prove we are the best.”

Head coach Jamie Bermel said the team has practiced extensively

over the last three weeks and has focused on conditioning.

“I expect everyone to play well and the team to do well,” Bermel

said. “This will be a very good test within our conference. We need

to play very solid; nothing spectacular, but real solid CSU


Softball to play two more in Triple Crown Classic

The CSU Rams will take on the Northern Colorado Bears and


Western Nebraska Cougars on Sunday in a continuation of the

Triple Crown Classic.

In the tournament’s games Sept. 24-26 CSU went undefeated by

beating UNC 7-0 in a no hitter, outscoring the Colorado-Colorado

Springs 2-0 and 3-2 and by beating Montana 7-0.

CSU will look to go 6-0 in the tournament against UNC that has

yet to get on base against the Rams and against a Western

Nebraska’s team that is entirely composed of freshmen and


CSU will face UNC at 10 a.m. and take on Western Nebraska at 2

p.m. Sunday at Triple Crown Field.

Regardless of whether professor Steven Helmericks’ personal

views on current political issues are valid, a sociology classroom

is not the venue for it, and he should be reprimanded for wasting

his students’ time and money, if nothing else. Suggesting that a

student take another course so he could continue his indoctrination

of the other students is not a feasible solution; it’s an insult to

the student in question and to the very idea of classroom

discussion. Despite Helmericks’ and various students’ claims, this

is not a Republican conspiracy against liberal professors. To prove

this, simply walk down any hallway of professors’ offices on campus

and look at the political cartoons they put on their doors. We are

not suffering from a shortage of liberal views on this campus, not

by a long shot. Also, the vast majority of professors, despite

their views, are able to control themselves to the point where they

don’t offend anyone (and liberals whining about Republicans getting

offended is really amusing to any of us who remember the Trent Lott


The solution to this problem is not to persecute people for

their beliefs (not that I think this was done) but for professors

to realize that they are here for the students and not for

themselves. Having said this, I don’t want professors to be afraid

to bring up sensitive subjects in their class, as long as it is of

educational benefit to the people who a university should really be

about: the students.

The Lory Student Center is advising the campus community and

campus visitors that from Monday, through Wednesday, “Justice for

All” will have an 18-foot tall photographic exhibit consisting of

15 panels that will include very graphic abortion photographs on

the Plaza.

This is not a CSU-sponsored activity and the university takes no

position regarding either the exhibit or its content. CSU is

neither trying to censure nor endorse the exhibit, but it wants to

be sure that community members and visitors are aware of its

presence. Community members should take alternate routes if they

wish to avoid the exhibit and its contents.

The presidential debates Thursday proved how frivolous they

really are. Both candidates had demands that were unrelated to the

task at hand. Senator John Kerry requested that the temperature in

the room be a certain temperature so he didn’t sweat. President

Bush requested that the candidates were placed far enough apart so

that a split screen image would make the two appear to be the same


These requests are pointless at first glance, but after more

consideration both are trying to make themselves appear calm and

collected. The candidates know the debates, and their appearance on

those debates, are important to the American people and don’t want

to be the one that looks ill-equipped.

People shouldn’t care what the candidate looks like on the TV

screen; they should be more concerned with what they have to offer

the nation as president. Appearance may have decided presidential

elections in the past but it’s the issues that we need to be

worried about not if the president is short or ugly or has sweat


Instead of focusing on which candidate is more aesthetically

pleasing, take a look at the issues they stand for and then make

your decision.

Anarchists: What are you thinking?

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Anarchists: What are you thinking?
Sep 302004
Authors: Kenneth Zetye

There is scarcely a day that goes by where I don’t see someone

on this campus wearing an anarchy sign. I suppose that this is some

sort of fashion statement or something, or maybe these kids are

just angry with some issue. Perhaps they believe that anarchy will

solve their problems, and no one will ever tell them to do anything

they don’t want to do again.

But I do not understand this at all. How is it possible for

someone to be so stupid? Do these people know what anarchy means?

Let’s take a step back here.

Anarchy is a political theory that is opposed to all forms of

government. These people believe that they are only able to fully

express themselves when they are under no control from any outside

influences. While there is a value in this theory that tells people

in their anarchist utopia to be nice to each other, many anarchists

have used violence through assassination and terrorism to promote

their cause. These assassinations include the president of France,

the king of Italy, the king of Greece and even President William

McKinley of the United States. There is also the issue of injury

and damage caused by anarchists during demonstrations around the

United States and Europe over the past decade. Yet, there are still

children walking around sporting this symbol of destruction at our

institution of higher learning.

If I had my way I’d probably punch everyone who looked at me

wrong. I do not do this because we live in a peaceful society of

rules and law. If I were to follow my instincts I would most likely

end up in jail. This is how society works, and we are able to live

in cities without walls and a country where there are not roving

bands of thieves and killers terrorizing the countryside.

Do you really want anarchy? I think not. Let me describe anarchy

for all of you who are still unsure of the word’s meaning. BAM! I

just killed you and took your wallet. BAM! Now I just killed your

friend and took his wallet. What are you going to do about this?

Nothing, you’re dead. In fact, no one is going to do anything about

the death of you and your friend. There is no police


The police annoy everyone when they get a speeding ticket, but a

look at life without them is a far cry from better. I would bet

that the police have been called on many occasions by kids with

anarchy signs on their jackets.

What I’m getting at here is that if you’re wearing an anarchy

sign around, stop for a minute and think about it. What are you

trying to say with this symbol? If you really believe in it, then I

guess you’re entitled to your opinion. But for the majority of you,

grow up.
