reshman N.C. Teaching Fellows will relocate to a new
residence hall this fall after University Housing and
Dining Services decided to accommodate for students
with disabilities.
The decision to relocate all female incoming N.C. Teach-
ing Fellows from Fleming Hall to Cotten Hall came after
a few women in the N.C. Teaching Fellows Program
requested special accommodations due to their dis-
abilities.
"This is the first time that there were requests
from students in the N.C. leaching Fellows pro-
gram for housing in a handicapped accessible
residence hall said Manny Amaro, director
of University Housing.
Since Fleming Hall is not handicapped ac-
cessible, Cotten Hall was chosen to house
these students because of its handicapped
accessibility and its close proximity to class
buildings. Also, since Cotton Half is an all-
female residence hall, University Housing
thought it would best house the majority
of incoming N.C. Teaching Fellows who are
female. All incoming and present male N.C.
Teaching Fellows will remain in Fleming.
"We have close to 50 women coming
into the N.C. Teaching Fellows program
as opposed to the six or seven males that
are enrolling Amaro said.
The N.C. Teaching Fellows Program is a
statewide effort to attract students pursuing
a teaching profession. Upon admission, stu-
dents receive an education that encourages
the development of excellence in teaching
and educational leadership. While living on
campus, students in the Teaching Fellows Pro-
gram have the privilege of living in Fleming Hall,
a residence hall that has extended quiet hours.
Currently, Fleming Hall is the only residence
hall on campus that is designated to house stu-
dents in both the N.C. Teaching Fellows program
and the Honors program. However, due to the amount
of students in the programs this fall, Fleming could not
be completely filled. A request was then made to place
Honors Students in Fleming.
Fleming has been exclusive to students in the two programs
ever since the School of Education placed a request that the
leaching Fellows be grouped togethet over 10 years ago. After
the relocation occurs, Fleming Hall will continue to house all
other students participating in both programs.
University Housing recently discovered that students who
live in Fleming Hall are not grouped in the residence hall by
their separate programs. The university is in fact not exclusive
to these two programs only.
"Any department can put a request for students of a pro-
gram to be grouped together in a residence hall) said Amaro.
According to Housing, relocating this group of N.C. leach-

Official panel to crackdown on drug abuse, assaults crime SCENE
Student alcohol,
GHB use increased
Nancy Kuck
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
A university task force will
form to help combat increasing
levels of student drug use and
sexual assault on campus, begin-
ning this fall.
Organized by Vice Chancellor
for Student Life Carrie Moore,
the group's goal will be to imple-
ment a preventive plan which
includes monitoring ECU's aca-
demic and social environment
for factors that may encourage
alcohol and substance abuse, as
well as sexual assault.
"The goal of the program is to
pull everyone together and lower
the risk of sexual assault and drug
usage said Robert Morphet,
counselor at the Center for
Counseling and Student Devel-
opment.
Although no decision has been
made as to which officials will be
on the panel, the panel will in-
troduce a plan by fall 2001.
The decision to organize this
task force came after university
officials noticed the number of
alcohol, substance abuse and
sexual assault taken from surveys
completed by students last year.
The Core Institute administers a
survey to ECU and other univer-
sities every two years to assist
higher education in drug and al-
cohol prevention efforts. The last
survey, in the spring of 1999, had
498 participants from ECU.
The survey concluded that of
all ECU students who binge
drink, 40 percent had academic
difficulty, 70-80 percent got in
fights or some type of assault, and
80-85 percent were a victim of
sexual assault, also known as
'date rape
According to Morphet, stu-
dents who tend to drink less
achieve a higher GPA then those
who drink all the time. ECU re-
mained in the norm when com-
pared to other universities that
took the survey.
According to the statistics that
see PANEL page 3
COTTEN
from page 1
ing Fellows should not affect the
program in any way.
Currently, Cotton Hall is at
maximum occupancy for the fall
semester causing a problem with
students who have medical con-
ditions and require air condition-
ing. To solve this issue, a decision
was made to move the students
signed up to live in Gotten into
Fleming in the fall. This caused
an upset from students in the
Honors program. The dispute is
that Fleming is specific to stu-
dents in the two programs and it
was not fair that students in nei-
ther programs are moving in.
"Not everyone is going to be
happy but it is the best we can
do at this time Amaro said.
Until a new facility is built that
is co-ed, handicapped accessible
and is able to house students
from the two programs, fresh-
man N.C. Teaching Fellows will
continue to reside in Cotton Hall.
Out of the 15 residence halls
that the university operates, only
three are handicapped accessible
and conveniently located to
classroom and administrative
buildings, and dining services.
Cotton, Fleming and Jarvis Halls
will be considered a complex
with one coordinator that will
oversee all students.
"I can say that Housing works
very closely with us to make sure
that the needs of people with dis-
abilities are reasonably accom-
modated said Dr. C.C. Rowe,
Department for Disability Sup-
port Services. ECU has experi-
enced a tremendous amount of
students requesting accommoda-
tions and support from the uni-
versity and in return, the institu-
tion has done all they can to ad-
here to them. Special applica-
tions are given out for any stu-
dent that requests these accom-
modations.

were calculated, alcohol is the most-used
drug among ECU students, with 63.6 per-
cent of students using alcohol in the two
weeks before the survey was adminis-
tered. Marijuana is the second most-used
drug with 16 percent of students using
the drug in the two weeks before the sur-
vey.
The most common activities and types
of assaults at ECU were hitting and fight-
ing. Upon reviewing statistics from the
surveys, university officials saw the need
to create a task force.
"We've been concerned about drugs
and violence for some time Antineau
said. "We realized we needed a coordi-
nated effort
Despite the increase, Antineau said the
majority of ECU students do not have a
problem with binge drinking, while one-
third of students do not drink alcohol at
social occasions.
The university currently has several
types of preventative programs set up
through the Center of Counseling and
Student Development. These include
Health Fairs, Alcohol Awareness Week
and Fresh Start, an educational overview
for students on the effects of cigarette
smoking and how to quit. Information
pamphlets are provided throughout cam-
pus and can be found in classrooms, fra-
ternities , sororities, residence halls and
in the Student Health Center.

environment of ECU and fight

Robert Morphet
Center for Counseling and Student Develop-
ment
"We also provide training to RAs and
Orientation Assistants on what to do if
something looks suspicious Morphet
said. Counseling for students involved in
alcohol and drug abuse is also provided.
To initiate the problem of drug and al-
cohol abuse, the task force will seek to
get students involved in focus groups.
These groups will allow students to voice
their opinions and beliefs on the issues.
The panel will then decide what to do
from there based on the information and
research.
"We want to implement the prevention
program campus-wide Morphet said.
Students, especially those in the Athletic
Department and Greek Council, are en-
couraged to get involved with the pre-
ventive measures beginning this fall.

Colleges face shortage of professors
Education experts are predicting that overall college enrollment will rise by 2 million to 16 million students over the next decade.
LOS ANGELES (Chicago Tri-
bune)� Faced with a large en-
rollment surge from the children
of Baby Boomers and a flurry of
expected retirements, colleges
and universities across the nation
are bracing for a shortage of tens
of thousands of professors.
Education experts are predict
ing that overall college enroll-
ment will rise by 2 million to 16
million students over the next
decade.
No one has an exact figure on
the number of faculty positions
that will open over the next de-
cade, but with an average 20-1
faculty-student ratio, the figure
could reach an estimated 100,000
positions.
The college faculty crunch
comes at a time when elementary
and secondary schools are en-
countering their own teacher
shortages and when all schools
are facing intense public pressure
to raise the quality of education.
Experts say the competition for
faculty could create a sellers mar-
ket, which in turn could drive up
salaries, exacerbating universi-
ties' current practice of hiring
more part-time and non-tenured
professors and forcing institu-
tions to introduce more indepen-
dent study courses to reach more
jstudents with fewer instructors.
In the 1960s and 1970s, enroll-
ment also surged when millions
of Baby Boomers flooded the
nation's colleges and universities.
Back then, schools responded by
building new campuses, expand-
ing curricula and hiring new pro-
fessors.
Now tens of thousands of
those professors have reached
their SOs, 60s and 70s and are
nearing retirement, according to
the Project on Faculty Appoint-
ments at Harvard University's
Graduate School of Education.
Though colleges and universities
banned mandatory retirement in
1994, one-third of the nation's
faculty is SS and older compared
to one-fourth a decade ago.
If the hot job market and lure
of Internet start-ups continue,
finding enough qualified faculty
to replace retirees and to meet
future demand could be much
tougher this time around, some
experts said.
During the first boom, "we
didn't have the acute competi-
tion from the private sector said
Patrick Callan, president of the
National Center for Public Policy
and Higher Education, a think
tank in San Jose, Calif.
"The competitive impact is
strong Callan added. "But in
California, the problem of hir-
ing new facultyl is more pro-
nounced, with a combination of
high student demand, high cost
of living and Silicon Valley
Experts said the shortage of
college professors will be particu-
larly dramatic in Texas, Florida,
Arizona and California. In a de-
cade, for example, California
alone is expecting 793,000 addi-
tional public and private school
students.
The population of college-
bound students has been grow-
ing steadily for IS years. The
number of high school graduates
in the U.S. has risen to 2.8 mil-
lion this year from 2.3 million in
1985, according to the Western
Interstate Commission for
Higher Education in Boulder,
Colo. The population is expected
to reach 3.2 million by 2008.
Moreover, the number of so-
called non-traditional students�
adults 25 and older�has been
climbing rapidly.
Illinois' college enrollment is
expected to grow a modest
87,000 by 2020, according to the
state's Board of Higher Education.
Unlike the first boom in the
1960s, which was spread
throughout the country, this sec-
ond wave will be concentrated in
20 states mainly in the West, Pa-
cific Northwest, Southwest and
South.
A survey conducted by the
State Higher Education Executive
Officers showed that college of-
ficials considered attracting and
retaining professors and main-
taining competitive salaries for
faculty their No. 2 and No. 3
most important issues.
"At least 17 states said they are
considering new initiatives on
faculty supply and demand
said Alene Russell, senior re-
search associate for the Denver
organization, which represents
higher education boards in all 50
states.
In Arizona, where college en-
rollment is expected to grow to
120,000 in 10 years from
105,000, Gov. Jane Hull recently
signed legislation placing a
proposition on the November
ballot that would increase
higher-education spending by
$40 million a year. A large por-
tion of that money, according to
Arizona education officials,
would be used to address future
faculty shortages.
The huge demand for top-
notch research faculty by Ari-
zona, California, Texas and
Florida could intensify competi-
tion among institutions and
draw away talent from other
states. Thus, even states with low
shortages are studying how they
can prevent a brain drain.

OPINION
TV's reality shows unreal
If you are like the millions of other
people out there who love to watch
so-called 'reality shows such as "Big
Brother "Survivor" and MTV's "The
Real World" and "Road Rules then
I feel sorry for you. Have you ever re-
ally thought about these shows and
how real they are? And did you ever
think of the Simple idea these shows
are based on and how we have the
desire to watch them? Well, I will tell
you why we love these shows. We
love them because it is the closest
people will ever come to being God.
I don't believe in God, but the idea
about Him and what He does is about
the same as what TV producers do for
the mindless masses. (jod supposedly
created a world, an environment,
where He put people to see how they
woufd interact with each other. He
set up rules and watched from above
as these oddly looking creatures lived
amongst each other in a closed sys-
tem. Sounds just like what Hollywood
is doing. Hmmm Can we spell 'hu-
bris?'
These shows take your average citi-
zens and interview them to find out
if they have a personality that is
worth watching. So thousands of
people show up to the interview and
there are casting calls and all that.
Not every real person on this planet
is exciting and fun to watch. Most are
boring. Casting people in this way is
not random, and it doesn't sound too
real to me. Neither is putting cast
members in a million-dollar house
filled with expensive toys and cam-
eramen in every nook and cranny of
the house. Every move they make
and everything they say is recorded.
The fact is that these shows are ed-
ited so viewers are missing much of
the "real" in reality. And we Ameri-
cans gobble this garbage up because
it is the biggest soap opera of all time.
You get the sex, arguments and mys-
tery, but it is "real" people, not ac-
tors acting this way. Personally, I
would rather see actors. And you
have to remember a part of
Heisenberg Principle: you cannot ex-
periment on anything without alter-
ing that which you are experiment-
ing on.
We all have a childlike curiosity to
"see what would happen if It is
like some mean kids putting three
cats in a laundry sack, just to "see
what they would do But now we
do it as adults: "Hey let's get six Gen-
eration Xers, put them in a house,
and see what they will do
What we don't realize is that we
are all in a reality show. Every one of
us that lives with one or more people
deals with what these people on TV
deal with. It's called Everyday Life.
But we are so gaga over these shows
because it allows us to watch the ev-
eryday lives of OTHERS. What that
says is that our lives are so boring we
have to watch other's live.
I say jazz up your own life and you
will be too busy too watch what other
people are doing. Now that would be
real.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Lodhi, Dijeack misinformed columnists
I have read the South-bashing in The East
Carolinian and held my tongue. I have read
opinions about the Confederate battle flag in
South Carolina and gun control while sadly
shaking my head. The opinion columnists
Tweedle Dumb' (Lodhi) and 'Tweedle
Dumber' (Dijeack) have insulted what I hope-
is the intelligence of all the students and fac-
ulty who read The East Carolinian.
Lodhi, in the article "Gun Control Neces-
sary stated the NRA doesn't want to limit
guns "even to a mentally ill person" and how
poor Mr. Clinton "has put forth a tremendous
effort to reduce gun violence
Even Harlequin Romance novels don't con-
tain so much senseless drivel. There are thou-
sands of gun laws on the books. The NRA (of
which I am not a member) pushes for stricter
enforcement of existing gun laws to remove
guns from the criminal element. Meanwhile,
convictions for gun-related crimes have gone
down consistently under the Clinton Admin-
istration. I don't consider too little, too late
much of an effort-especially since our es-
teemed president knows that he is not facing
re-election.
As for Dijeack and the article "Confederate
I lag Madness Must Stop I hardly know where
to begin. Perhaps this is because I'm just a
dumb backwoods hick from a small town in
North Carolina. According to Dijeack, I should
just forget my heritage. Forget that I am de-
scended from soldiers who fought and bled
for the rights of their home state 140 years
ago, as well as soldiers who fought for their
freedom from England 225 years ago.
The Confederate battle flag is no more a
symbol of slavery than Tlie East Carolinian
banner is a symbol of half wits like Dijeack.
Eighty percent of Confederate soldiers never
owned slaves. By labeling the good people of
S.C. and myself "backwoods hicks" he em-
braces the very racist traits that he claims to
revile.
This heap of tripe further claims that the U.S.
government "didn't even hold a grudge and
graciously let the Confederacy come back" into
the Union. Some prior research might have
helped here. After the war the Southern states
were reclaimed as spoils of war, given North-
ern governors, and squashed under the heel of
the Johnson Administration.
This article points to low educational scores
and the poor standard of living in S.C. Can any-
one believe that it is a coincidence that the
bottom 11 states in education are the 11 that
seceded from the Union? That is, after 135 years
of 'reconstruction The U.S. was more gener-
ous in rebuilding war torn Japan and Germany
after World War II than it was with its own
brother states following the rebellion. Dijeack
claims to be embarrassed for the people of S.C.
He should be embarrassed, not for them, but
himself.
The fight for freedom has many battles. Not
all of them are won. Believe what you will, but
Ux)k at all the evidence before passing judgment
on others.
I embrace the Constitution of the U.S. as a
living document and for the rights it bestows. I
salute the stars and stripes as the banner of free-
dom. I revere this nation and the blessings it
bestows on my fellow man, even Lodhi and
Dijeack.
I will not, however, forget its past, its history,
its trials or troubles. This country was paid for
in blood. If we forget this price that our ances-
tors paid, black and white, Northern and South-
ern, the rest is worth nothing.

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP)-
A 19-year-old man accused
of shooting a Schenectady
police officer has plead
guilty.
The surprise plea, which will
net Bronx native Kami Hodge
a 20-year-to-life prison sen-
tence, came on Tuesday-the
day before jury selection for
his Schenectady County
Court trial was set to begin.
Hodge faces sentencing on
Aug. 14.
Hodge, also known as James
Smith, pedaled a bike past
two police officers on Dec. 6,
1999 and taunted them.
When police gave chase,

Roommates find ways to

yt uddenly having to share a tiny

include security, food, and

PICK OF THE WEEK: Sonic Jihad by Snake River Conspiracy
Emily Little
FEATURES EDITOR
You may have heard this
band on 99X already. They've
just started playing Snake River
Conspiracy's version of "How
Soon is Nowyou know, The
Smiths song that Love Spit Love
remade for the introduction to
the movie The Craft and the TV
show "Charmed You'll hear it
sooner or later because it's a re-
ally good rendition.
Snake River Conspiracy in-
cludes a really angry girl named
Tobey Torres and her good
friend Jason Slater, who used to
be a member of Third Eye Blind.
But, fear not, this album is not
even remotely like the driveling
whines of Slater's former band.
This is more like what
Portishead and Garbage would
sound like if they joined forces
and listened to a lot of Tool.
The tunes on this album are
so fluid that you'll forget it's
electronic. Slater fills each song
with hints of a melodic scale,
giving the whole album a mys-
terious, dark feel. Add to that
Torres' voice, a girlie one that
would really irritate on a pop genre
backdrop but puts nice contrast on
Slater's beats, and you have a likable
combination.
But not everything is wonderful in
Snake River. You begin to wonder, as
you listen to each song closely, just
what the parental advisory is doing on
the cover of the album. The first nine
songs seem harmless enough. You pick
up the word "love" here and there,
and nobody yells too much. There's
the one song where Torres whines
about people she hates at a party, or
"Somebody Hates You whose sarcas-
tic tone muffles the anger.
But just when you think the cen-
sors have really overreacted, you come
to track 10, "Vulcan where Torres
sounds like the 12 year old who just
learned the "F" word. So much rage
reminds you of the Seattle days, when
everyone was ticked-off and just
wanted to say so. But here it just
sounds like a whiny girl who didn't
get what she wanted for Christmas.
And you can't even really tell who
she's so mad at.
But other than that one song, this
album is full of good stuff.

Hoops powers to come to Greenville
Pirates to join Cincinnati, Louisville, Depaul,
UNC-Charlotte in American Division
Stephen Schramm
SPORTS EDITOR
When ECU announced they would join Conference-USA, visions
of the ECU basketball team playing Louisville, Cincinnati and
DePaul year in and year out danced in Pirate fans' heads.
"For men's basketball we are going to be going into a conference that has
tremendous history and it's going to be a great challenge said Head Men's
Basketball Coach Bill Herrion, upon joining the conference. "When you talk
about Louisville, UNC Charlotte, DePaul, Houston, they have been to the
Final Four and won national championships. There are some great teams on
. the men's side
With C-USA's announcement of how they would divvy up the now 14 men's
basketball teams in the conference, ECU will now get a little more cozy with
the conference's basketball powerhouses.
C-USA will be split up into two seven-team divisions for the 2001-2002
season. ECU will belong to the American Division. Also in the American Divi-
sion, are UNC-Charlotte, Cincinnati, DePaul, Louisville, Marquette and Saint
Louis.
The marquis name in the group is Cincinnati. The Bearcats have been one
of college basketball's most consistent programs. The team has been the class
of the conference for much of the last decade.
With the Bearcats in ECU's division, it means Cincinnati will play the Pi-
rates twice a year, guaranteeing a visit to Greenville.
Also coming to Williams Arena each year will be the Louisville Cardinals.
Under long-time head coach Denny Crum, the Cardinals have built a win-
ning tradition and won two national championships.
The decision also ensures an instate rivalry with UNC-Charlotte. Long over-
shadowed by their ACC cousins, the 49ers have built a strong program that

There will be four crossover

South Africa considering legally
challenging 2006 World Cup
JOHANNESBURG, South Af-
rica (AP)-The chairman of South
Africa's 2006 World Cup bid
committee plans to fly to Bel-
gium to discuss with an attorney
whether to legally challenge the
FIFA vote that gave Germany the
cup, a newspaper reported Sun-
day.
The South African Football
Association decided that Irvin
Khoza would discuss the issue
with a Belgian attorney after a
meeting in Johannesburg earlier
this week, The Sunday Telegraph
reported in London.
"We were contacted by a law-
yer who is extremely knowledge-
able about Swiss and administra-
tive law and I want to meet with
him Khoza was quoted as say-
ing.
Khoza declined to name the
lawyer. Without providing de-
tails, Khoza said the bid commit-
tee was working on "one particu-
lar piece of evidence
"We need to be convinced and
I don't want to say anything that
could pre-empt the situation he
was quoted as saying.
South Africa lost the bid in the
third round of voting after
Oceania Football Confederation
president Charles Dempsey of
New Zealand abstained, giving
Germany a 12-11 lead.
Had Dempsey voted for South
Africa, the vote would have been
tied, and FIFA President Sepp
Blatter would have been granted
a second, tie-breaking vote.
Blatter has openly advocated
awarding the 2006 World Cup to
Africa. Dempsey has since re-
signed from FIFA's executive
committee.
Khoza said South Africa could
not keep quiet about Dempsey's
position.
"We have always said that
we'd be perfectly comfortable if
he had abstained from the start
or voted for Germany in the cru-
cial third ballot. The FIFA stat-
utes may not say you can't ab-
stain, but nor do they say you
can't appeal Khoza was quoted
as saying.
Danny Jordaan, chief execu-
tive of the bid committee, did
not immediately return a phone
call placed by The Associated
Press.
Meanwhile, South African
media is campaigning to bring
the 2010 World Cup to Africa.
Several papers are publishing
petitions urging FIFA to only
consider African bids for the
2010 cup. Readers are instructed
to sign the petitions and send
them to the newspapers for de-
livery to FIFA ahead of its Aug. 3
meeting in Zurich, Switzerland.
Wagner card sold for $1.1 million
NEW YORK (AP)-Honus
Wagner is still a big hit after 91
years.
A near-mint condition card
depicting the Hall of Fame Pitts-
burgh Pirates shortstop, issued in
1909 by the American Tobacco
Company, fetched a winning bid
of $1.1 million on Saturday on
the eBay online auction house.
The winning bidder, whose
identity wasn't released, will pay
nearly $1.27 million, which in-
cludes a 15 percent buyer's pre-
mium.
Robert Lifson, President of
Robert Edward Auctions, in
Watchung, N.J confirmed the
sale price and said the buyer
hadn't decided whether to make
his name public.
Bidding on the card began at
$500,000 on July 5, and 13 total
bids were made.
The card, widely regarded as
one of the rarest among collec-
tors, is the finest known speci-
men of about 50 Wagner cards
known to exist from the 1909 set.
That set, known to collectors as
the T206 set, is the most col-
lected set of baseball cards ever.
"We've had several very high-
priced items but, unfortunately,
because of the sheer volume of
items we don't have a list of
highest auctions eBay spokes-
man Kevin Pursglove said. "But
it's safe to say that this Wagner
card is in the top two or three
The card, won in an auction
for $640,500 by renowned Chi-
cago-based collector Michael

card and I'll miss it Gidwitz

Gidwitz, 50, said he has been

uncut sheets of baseball cards
and rare original paintings of

Scandal documents show failure to act decisively
MINNEAPOLIS (AP)-Docu
ments released by the Univer-
sity of Minnesota reveal a long
pattern of failing to act deci-
sively as officials were con-
fronted with allegations of mis-
conduct within the men's bas-
ketball program, the Star Tri-
bune reported Saturday.
The documents, which are
part of the university's re-
sponse to the NCAA's charges
of rules violations, also show
that key officials involved in
the academic fraud scandal
continue to deny any indi-
vidual responsibility, the news-
paper said.
Although the university re-
peatedly acknowledged in the
documents that it lacked insti-
tutional control over the bas-
ketball program, the individu-
als responsible still haven't ac-
cepted blame for their roles,
University General Counsel
Mark Rotenberg said.
"I don't think the appropri-
ate individuals have yet come
forward and accepted respon-
sibility for what happened
here Rotenberg told the Star
Tribune on Friday. "If you put
"I don't think the appropriate individuals have yet come forward and ac-
cepted responsibility for what happened here

everyone's denials side by side,
you'd be led to believe that this
scandal happened all by itself, with
no human actors at all. That is not
a plausible scenario
University officials will appear at
a closed hearing by the NCAA in-
fractions committee in Beaver
Creek, Colo Aug. 11-3 to argue
that the basketball program
shouldn't be penalized further.
Rotenberg said the university's
strategy before the infractions com-
mittee will be to acknowledge its
failures fully and note the sanctions
it has self-imposed.
The self-sanctions include reduc-
ing the number of basketball schol-
arships, banning postseason play
this past season, giving up past TV
and NCAA tournament revenue to-
taling an estimated $350,000 and
restricting recruiting.
Virtually all of the infractions ac-
knowledged in the more than
1,000 pages sent to the NCAA al-
ready had been reported after a
nine-month investigation last
year.
In its report to the NCAA, the
University noted many times
when officials were informed of
problems but didn't adequately
investigate. Those allegationsta-
cluded suspicions that Jan
Gangelhoff, who worked in the
academic counseling unit, was
doing players' coursework. Her
admission to the Saint Paul Pio-
neer Press in March 1999 that she
did more than 400 pieces of
coursework for up to 20 players
sparked the probe.
The Star Tribune said the docu-
ments point to failures by many
former high-level officials, in-
cluding McKinley Boston, Vice
President for Student Develop-
ment and Athletics; men's Ath-
letic Director Mark Dienhart;
Chris Schoemann, director of
NCAA compliance, and others.
The papers show that officials
had concerns about the academic

integrity of former coach Clem
Haskins' basketball program dat-
ing to 1986, just months after he
was hired to resurrect the pro-
gram after a sexual assault scan-
dal.
But, key figures in the scandal
defended their roles in their own
responses to the NCAA, many
pointing fingers at Haskins,
Gangelhoff and Alonzo Newby,
a former basketball academic
counselor who allegedly helped
orchestrate the fraud with
Haskins' knowledge. Some also
suggested Boston should accept
much of the blame.
Dienhart told the NCAA it's
"simply not true" that he failed
"to exert appropriate institu-
tional control" over the basket-
ball program while he ran the
athletic department. "It appears
that I was continuously deceived
by coach Haskins and others he
said.
Schoemann described how, be-
fore the scandal, Boston decided
not to follow his recommenda-
tion that Newby and Gangelhoff
be fired. He said he reported all
his findings as well as all of his
suspicions to his superior.
In her response to the NCAA,
Elayne Donahue, former director
of the university's academic
counseling unit, said officials
dragged their heels or disregarded
her concerns about academic in-
tegrity. She also said Haskins and
Boston often accused those who
disagreed with them of being rac-
ist.
Boston told the Star Tribune on
Friday that he acted properly and
suggested Gangelhoff was at the
root of the academic scandal. He
didn't write a letter to the NCAA
defending himself, he said, "be-
cause I didn't have anything else
to say
He said he didn't recall having
any conversation or correspon-
dence with Schoemann about
whether Gangelhoff or Newby
should have been fired. And he
adamantly denied discussing race
issues with Donahue other than
concerning programs to support
underprepared students.
