November 27, 2002 The University News 17 Sports The ride of a lifetime Student's eight-second bullii ding crash course by Ben Gibson Contributing Writer This is the story of the un- likely. For five years, I lived behind the Mansfield Rodeo, a place called the Cowbell. My dogs often broke loose and ran circles around the rodeo bulls— yap- ping. The offended bulls would re- taliate by bellowing a Hallelu- jah Chorus at one in the morn- ing and occasionally breaking loose to run around our yard, squashing sunflowers until herded back to their pastures by a phalanx of police vehicles, si- rens whooing to set the beef in motion. For five years I lived behind the Mansfield Rodeo. And in my five years, I stepped within its gates once, and I stayed in the stands. Then I came to the University of Dallas, an Irving school for Independent Thinkers. And what do I see? I see yellow signs plastered all over campus advertising a trip to a rodeo to ride bulls. Bulls from the Mansfield Rodeo. I do ...

^ovember^7i^002Jjhe_Umversity_News_J2 Commentary UD should streamline to meet economic needs by Janet Hendrickson Editor in Chief The course of the semester has made it clear that the admin- istration wants to change UD. Business is here; communica- tions and environmental science may be on the way. Progress seems as inevitable as the ring of a freshman's cell phone in the cap bar. Since his arrival six years ago, Msgr. Joseph has done a lot to spruce up the campus. Vibrant flowers compensate in part for the clumsy buildings. Yet like the architecture, one structural component of the uni- versity remains that's about 35 years out of date. Unlike the buildings, how- ever, it's a lot easier to get rid of: the list of current majors. Before we add new majors, however, we need to evaluate se- riously our current offerings. In the face of its current financial crunch, the university must eliminate the majors that are re- dundant, outdated, or simply too costly to maintain. I propose we b...

"By committing to build, the university is re- affirming its belief in the Catholic, liberal-arts education:' Because of the construction, Constantin graduation may take place off campus this spring, Galecke said. During most years the gym is set up for graduation in case of rain; however, the expansion project this May will prevent that. A committee hopes to decide on an alternate rain site within the next week, such as the Adam's Mark Hotel downtown, although they may decide to hold graduation there rain or shine because of setup logistics. The committee is composed of Jan Burk, registrar, Dr. Frank Doe, dean of Constantin college, Claudia MacMillan, assistant Constantin dean, and Julie Pool, director of external relations.

4 February 5, 2003 The University News News Library cites battery wear in laptop removal by Rebecca Leland News Editor Blakely library will stop pro- viding students with laptop rent- als this semester, discontinuing a service available to students for the past two years. While physical wear on the hardware was not evident, the batteries wore down as a result of their constant use. "In general they were treated pretty well; it's just that when they are being used that often, the battery life will suffer as a result;' Todd Ferguson, library assistant for digital access ser- vices, said. A fully charged, new battery cycle usually lasts about five hours, he said, but to- ward the end of the semester, the cycles lasted sometimes as little as 30 minutes. He said the library originally acquired the laptops for student use: "Students would really take advantage of the computer ac- cess the library provided. The desktop computers the library had for public access were al- most always occupi...

February 5, 2003 The University News News Dominicans slated or late ebruary move-in by Elisabet Pierucci Contributing Writer The new Dominican priory will be ready for move-in Feb. 10, Father John Lydon, UD chaplain, said. Since the groundbreaking ceremony last April, construction moved along on schedule with only a few minor delays. "I remember we had quite a bit of rain that slowed us down a bit; but since the construction was running ahead of schedule in the beginning, it did not cause any major delay,hesaid. Lydon cited the diligence of the contractor, Warren Andras and Co., for the timely completion of the priory. "Mr. Andras is a fine gentlemen who has been very helpful throughout the whole process," Lydon said. Subcontractors are currently laying down the carpets, installing the phone system and doing other electrical work. Once the city completes the necessary building inspections, the priory will be ready for occupancy. The Dominicans began cleaning out the old priory last ...

The days-long event kicked off Thursday night with Freshwater Collins at TGIT. Friday morn- ing at an early 8:30 a.m. a large group of unusually chipper stu- dents gathered for the groundhog's official emergence. And what was behind this chipperness? Early morning beer and eggs. The Groundhog king and queen, seniors Larry Mitnaul and Katherine Lively, were crowned at Friday night's show in the Rat. Saturday morning about 70 lined up for the 5K run, and were greeted at the finish line by a rewarding pint.

February 5, 2003 The University News 7 Features Much ado about laundry tudents cope with the pain of cleaning clothes by Ben Gibson A & E Editor "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold: Mere Anarchy is loosed upon the world/' wrote William Butler Yeats in his poem "The Second Coming:' Yeats probably wrote the poem after his washing machine broke down. As Dr. Thomas West pointed out, the washing machine is one of those objects of everyday life whose presence is hardly no- ticed but whose absence is keenly felt. Few people rise from their beds with washing-machine in- spired songs of thanksgiving on their lips. On the other hand, the number of persons who have called down curses upon a troublesome washer or dryer is considerable. Quite a bit of weeping and gnashing of teeth takes place on the other side of the dirty clothes hamper, where those overwhelmed by the odor of the shirt they are wearing for the umpteenth time passionately insist their laundry basket is the Abomination...

Accurate accounts of the birth of UD Groundhog are hard to find, but stories of drunken foolishness are not. As legend has it, at least ac- cording to Dr. Patrick Daly of business services, UD Ground- hog started with the initiative of one man 37 years ago. On be- half of bored UD students ev- erywhere, the student govern- ment president at the time ap- proached then UD president Donald Cowan with a simple re- quest. After explaining to Dr. Cowan the pitiful plight of the UD student in the dreary and de- pressing month of February, the student asked for the university to provide some way to keep a p...

The University News February 5, 2003 Q URES idhog the greatest of holidays to sever its official ties to the university and was instead se- cretly organized by the seniors. Groundhog had gone under- ground. Under-Groundhog continued the tradition and the spirit of Groundhog. Year after year, stu- dents met at Groundhog Park for a kegger in the woods that would put the crew from Dazed and Confused to shame. As the years went on, Groundhog snowballed into one of the single defining moments of a UD student's four years in Irving. It continued to grow larger and larger, snowballing into a party that could no longer be kept from the authorities. When students were rushed to the hospital for alcohol poi- soning and other injuries in- flicted at Groundhog Park, offi- cials were forced to regulate the proceedings. Under-Groundhog 2000 would be the final year the celebration was independent from the school. As was the tradition, the se- niors that year organized the event in extreme secrecy....

February 5, 2003 The University News ]_Q Arts & Entertainment Recruit flunks, Boyz crashes, Guru gets laughs bv FS Movie Reviewer The Recruit (wide release) is a romantic thriller that's neither very romantic nor especially thrilling. Smoldering, boyishly handsome Colin Farrell stars as a callow young computer whiz who joins a class of CIA wannabes at the urging of a gruff agent (A1 Pacino), a frumpy type who intimates that he was a comrade of the lad's deceased father. During the challenging training, our hero falls for a lovely classmate (Bridget Moynahan), but their relationship goes sour when he's given the task of proving that she's a mole planted by an enemy power. The first half of the picture, detailing Farrell's recruitment and the physical and psychological demands of training, is intriguing if frequently implausible. The last hour, however, takes a wrong turn, and ultimately the viewer is likely to feel exhausted rather than exhilarated by all the twists, chases and d...

These poor suckers were wretchedly disappointed when they found out the show was already sold out. In keeping with the diversity that distinguishes mankind, those whose hopes had just been dashed all reacted differently. Some confidently assured me they were going to listen faithfully to The Edge, and win the tickets the station was waving before their ears in exchange for being the nth number caller Another group placed its hope in reasonable ticket scalpers (Ha!), while still others formulated mad plots to sneak into the show under the guise of. .. the kind of person diat would be able to gain admission into a sold-out show.

After posting a 3-4 record to start the season, the Crusaders had been nearly unbeatable, winning 10 of their next 11 games, and earning a spot in the NCAA Division III South re- gion rankings. Against Southwestern how- ever, the Crusaders struggled, putting together what head coach Brian Stanfield said was the squad's "worst game to date from many different perspec- tives:' In the 81-58 loss, the Crusad- ers struggled from the opening tip, mustering only 13 points in the first half. Overall, the Crusaders struggled both offensively and defensively, shooting only 28 percent from the floor, and al- lowing Southwestern to domi- nate the tempo and outcome of the game.

Wlnle the game itself rarely matches the media hype and week-long hoopla that accom- panies the event, the Super Bowl remains the most impor- tant day on the American sports calendar. For the past 37 years, the Super Bowl has been a breed- ing ground for heroes and goats, cementing legends, and making the most obscure names into dinner-table fodder. Tins year's game was no dif- ferent. As the smoke cleared Sun- day evening, two of the 104 players participating in the game were thrust to the fore- front of the American con- sciousness: one for outstanding play on the field, the other for terrible indiscretion away from it. Leading up to Super Bowl XXXVII, Tampa ...

February 5, 2003 The University News Commentary City off the Hill Recent resignations cause U.S. Church crisis by Anna Smith Commentary Editor The University News is trying something new this semester. As UD is affectionately referred to as "the bubble" because of the lack of dialogue, concern, or even interest regarding current events, the commentary staff hopes to remedy the problem by bringing up topics of interest in the arena of public debate for the consumption and discussion of UD students. This weekly portion of commentaries, titled City off the Hill, will present a significant (and often controversial) issue in an objective fashion and then illustrate the various stances taken in public debate. This segment is meant to provoke consideration, discussion, and perhaps impassioned response to these issues on campus. Students interested in making their own opinions on these issues known are, of course, always welcome to write to the newspaper via e- mail at udcommentaries @yahoo...
