The infamous Stanley Cup will be on display In Mendenhall Student Center on ECU campus Monday afternoon from 4:30 until 6:30 p.m.
Stanley Cup coming to Greenville
Monday at Mendenhall
Brickyard
RON CLEMENTS
SENIOR WRITER
With the Stanley Cup
champion Carolina Hurricanes
beginning their title defense
last night with a 3-2 shoot
out loss to the Buffalo Sabres,
the NHL regular season has
begun, but the championship
celebration has not yet ended.
Lord Stanley's Cup will
begin one last tour Friday night,
which will include a visit to the
ECU campus Monday evening.
ECU alumni Dave Pond,
who is the current team writer
and web producer for the Hur-
ricanes, said the reason to bring
the Cup to Greenville is "simple
"We're not the Raleigh Hurri-
canes or the Durham Hurricanes
said Pond, a former sports editor
at the East Carolinian. "We're
the Carolina Hurricanes. There
are people all over the state who
are Hurricanes fans. As part of
the celebration of winning the
Stanley Cup, we wanted to bring
it to those fans, so they can see it
The Cup, which Carolina won
ID June by beating the Edmonton
Oilers in a thrilling seven-game
series for the first championship
in franchise history, will be in
front of the Mendenhall Student
Center at the Brickyard Monday
afternoon from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
No players will accompany
the Cup because the Hurricanes
will be in the middle of a seven-
game road trip, but it will be
an opportunity for hockey fans
to see the Cup up close and
get your picture taken with it.
Fans are asked to bring
their own cameras, as the Cup
handlers and team representa-
tives will not have cameras,
but Pond said they will be
willing to snap photos of fans.
Hockey historian and Stan-
ley Cup handler Mike Bolt, who
works for the Hockey Hall of
Fame in Toronto, will be on
campus "to share stories about the
Cup and its histories and travels
The Greenville stop is
part of a four-day tour around
North Carolina, which includes
visits to Charlotte on Saturday,
Greensboro, Winston-Salem
and Burlington Sunday, Rocky
Mount, Greenville and Golds-
boro Monday, and finishing up
in Fayetteville and Fort Bragg on
Tuesday. Prior to the Mendenhall
visit, Lord Stanley's Cup will be at
Pitt County Memorial Hospital.
While every player gets
to spend up to 32 hours with
the Cup, it will go back to its
home at the Hockey Hall in
Toronto following this four-day
trek across the Tar Heel state.
Pond said, the best
thing about seeing the Cup

SARAH BELL
EDITOR IN CHIEF
The ECU Student Media
Board met for the first time this
semester on Wednesday, Oct. 3 at 3
p.m. Media board members, media
heads and facultystaff advisers
were present to discuss the state
of the student media organiza-
tions, specifically the East Caro-
linian, the campus radio station
WZMB, Expressions magazine,
Rebel, Buccaneer and Web Media.
After approving the minutes
from the April 1'2 meeting, the
board members nominated and
approved Dana White, Panhel-
lenic Council president and
media board representative, to
chair the board.
The board was informed of
the redesign undertaken by the
East Carolinian over the summer
of both the print version and
Web site, the upcoming publica-
tion of Expressions magazine, the
upgrade of WZMB's automated
system and the progress made
by Rebel, the annual literary and
arts magazine, in regards to its
art show opening on Nov. 3 and
update of its Web site, rebel.
ecu.edu.
Also discussed at the meet-
ing was the possible addition of
a campus television station to the
student media organizations. The
board discussed the benefits and
drawbacks to having a campus
television station.
"It's people intensive, it's
costly, but it's very dynamic
said Ken Robol, director of Stu-
dent Media, about acquiring a
station. "It's a great opportunity
The addition of a student tele-
vision station could require fund-
ing from student fees and would
influence the fee process in fall
2007. A budget outlining esti-
mated startup and ongoing costs
of operating the station will be
presented to the board at the next
meeting for further discussion.

Greeks speak on legal issues with SGA attorney
Fraternities and
sororities learn about
new and changing laws
BENJAMIN CORMACK
STAFF WRITER
Student Government Asso-
ciation attorney Peter Romary
recently spoke to several fraternity
and sorority organizations about
Chapter Risk Management. His
presentation focused on teach-
ing and informing them about
new laws, changing laws and
current laws.
Romary addressed such issues
as what to do when you get drink-
ing tickets, what are the regula-
tions for noise ordinances, the
regulations for alcohol citations,
laws regarding intoxicated and
disruptive behaviors, and the
rights students have if police offi-
cers ask for identification, or to do
a breathalyzer test.
In open discussions with
students in classrooms as well
as Greek organizations' houses,
Romary has discussed issues he
said are the main areas where
students have come to him for
information in the last six
to 12 years: Interpersonal vio-
lence, domestic violence, stalk-
ing, sex offenses, identity theft,
landlord-tenant disputes and minor
criminal offenses, ranging from traffic
offenses to alcohol and drug offenses.
"I want to help students to
both stay safe and to stay away
from illegal entanglements said
Romary. "My role is to protect
the students. To protect their
legal rights and to help them
protect their safety. My role is
not to in any way be an enforcer
for administration or a conduit for
complaints from the community
Presidents of local chap-
ters of the Lambda Chi Alpha
fraternity and Sigma Sigma
Sigma sorority commented that
Romary's presentation was very
helpful and informative.
"We had about 50 people
in attendance said Lambda
Chi Alpha President Shane
Gorry. "That's the full frater-
nity. We actually signed up for it
ourselves. I thought it was a great
opportunity because we had guys
getting tickets and he Romary
lets you know your rights when
you go to Student Rights and
Responsibilities, which I don't
think a lot of students know
"Mr. Romary's presenta-
tion opened my eyes in terms of
how strict Greenville is getting
about underage drinking said
Sigma Sigma Sigma president
Meghan Flood.
New laws and changes
in current laws that Romary
discussed with them and others
are as follows:
Effective Dec. 1, when
purchasing kegs, you must obtain
a permit.
Effective Dec. 1, illegal
consumption of alcohol will
become a misdemeanor.
While it was previously not
a crime, illegal possession or
purchase of alcohol was.
People will have the ability
to break leases if they've been a
victim of domestic violence or
relationship violence. The new
prevision will allow victims to get
out or break leases, to change locks
andor get out of their lease.
According to Romary,
in late October, driving while
impaired will become a much
easier conviction.
These new laws leave some
to question what needs to
change in their own ordinances
and policies.
"We are trying our hardest
to enforce no underage drinking
and hold members accountable.
Right now my executive and I are
taking another look at what our
Nationals requires us to do
when we have social events Flood
said. "We want to make sure
that we are on the same page as
them and abiding by all of our Risk
Management policies
Gorry and his fraternity
brothers already go the extra mile
when it comes to enforcing the
rules that already exist.
"We hire Greenville police
officers. We have sober moni-
tors on top of that, we have
a guest list. Whenever we have
an event, we go ahead and let
them their neighbors know in
advance we don't do events on
the weekday.s. We probably only
do two or three large events a
semester Gorry said.
If something happens at a
Greek event, a report can be and
is normally filed. The Office
of Greek Life then directs the
investigation. Activities for that
organization can be or are sus-
pended during the investigation.
Courses of action and punish-
ment are then carried out by a
council of students and mem-
bers of the Office of Greek Life.
Past experiences can become a
factor when making these decisions.
Finally, if necessary, the Office of
Greek Life works with national
fraternity and sorority chapters,
the city and the school in regards
to any punishment.
While chapters and orga-
nizations as a whole are han-
dled by the Office of Greek Life,
their respective national chap-
ters, the Interfraternity Council,
the Panhellenic Council and
or the National Pan-Hellenic
Council, individual behavior still
falls under the jurisdiction of Stu-
dent Rights and Responsibilities,
as well as by their own judicial
councils within their fraternity
or sorority.

ECU Hispanic Film Series:
lluminados por el Fuego
(Enlightened by Fire)
Thursday, Oct. 26 at 5:30 p.m.
in Bate 2011.
Inspired by actual events, the
film presents the story of Este-
ban, who at the age of 18 was
sent to fight in the Falklands
Malvinas war against the British
in 1982. The attempted suicide
of a war buddy sparks a series
of flashbacks that portray the
experience of Esteban and his
friends as they fight the British
troops in the cold and harsh
conditions of the islands. As
Esteban comes to terms with
his past, the drama documents
the struggle that soldiers face
on the battlefield and when
they return home.
Hedda Gabler, Nov. 16-21
Employing methods that vir-
tually defined the modern
psychological drama, this mas-
terpiece reveals the conflicts
and emotions that lie below
the surface of daily life. Was it
murder or suicide? Originally by
Henrik Ibsen, the adaptation is
being presented by Christopher
Hampton.

Not just for Pirate Rants
LETTER FROM
THE EDITOR
Perhaps you missed my first letter, which
ran about a month ago, imploring you, our
readership, to refer to the East Carolinian by
its rightful name. Sure "TEC" is shorter and
ultimately faster to say, but it has absolutely
no meaning. Where is your Pirate pride?
Isn't it worth a few extra syllables to ensure
your campus newspaper isn't confused with
N.C. State's Technician?
Furthermore, I ask that if you insist on
referring to the paper as "TEC that you at
least refrain from calling it "the TEC since fe
"the TEC" is redundant. You are essentially
saying "the-The East Carolinian since the
T in "TEC" already stands for the word
"the
OK, that's my rant for the day.
As I mentioned earlier, my last column
ran on the Opinion page about a month
ago. Since then, this page has housed some
controversial opinions, expressed not only
through our columns but also in your Pirate
Rants.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank
you for your Pirate Rants, which I hope you
find as amusing as we here in the newsroom
do. In addition to providing us with daily
comedic relief, your rants have helped us
troubleshoot on our Web site, hunt down
pertinent stories and get an overall sense of
what our readers' concerns are.
In response to some of the Pirate Rants,
I'd like to explain my decision to run an
advertisement for Playboy's "Girls of the
Conference USA" pictorial auditions. We
received several responses via Pirate Rants
regarding the ad, which ran Tuesday and last
Thursday, expressing disappointment with
the East Carolinian's decision to run it.
Although I do not personally agree
with or support Playboy's objectification
of women (and I fail to see the journalistic
value of its articles), the East Carolinian's
role as a newspaper is to inform. Though
perhaps not the classiest, the Playboy ad did
provide information that some readers may
have wanted to know. To have not run the
ad, in my opinion, would have been to censor
the paper and deny our readers information,
which I do not agree with on both a personal
and professional level.
I welcome your rants and your letters, no
matter how controversial. This page serves
as an outlet for your opinions and, hopefully,
as a way for you to expand your knowledge
of what issues are important here at ECU.

PIRATE RANTS
Some teachers should be held
accountable for the derogatory
comments they make in class.
Why did my teacher postpone
the test until Thursday after I
busted my butt to read five weeks
worth and study like crazy in one
weekend?
If it weren't for the Black Student
Union, I would not be enjoying my
time here at ECU! I love you guys!
As a Greek myself, Eric Gilmore's
article couldn't have been
anymore truthful if we had wrote
it ourselves. Some people will
never understand because they
are not meant to!
People - Please stop talking
and ranting about sorority girls
because it gives them what every
girl dreams about attention!
Why do some girls refuse to
date guys that are skinner than
them? I'm 128 pounds but I'm a
runner. Most runners are skinny.
It doesn't mean you're fat if you're
guy is skinnier than you.
To the person that sent the patty
smacking rant. I too was hit with
a chicken patty from a moving
vehicle while I was strolling along
Fifth Street last semester. Who is
this party smacker?
For the record, there is no shame
in a guy riding the elliptical. It
shows confidence.
I didn't know sexy ever left.
Fraternities and sororities wear
their shirts on campus with their
heads held high because they are
proud of what they are a part of
not because we think more of us
or lesser of you.
If being Greek means buying
my friends, then it's the best
investment I've ever made.
Have you ever stopped to consider
that maybe you didn't get the job
because of your bad attitude?
I'm a girl and I think I'm in love
with a gay boy I've never talked
to. Is that weird?
I would like to say that the
Domestic Violence Awareness
Program put on by Alpha Phi
Alpha Fraternity Inc. and Zeta
Phi Beta Sorority Inc. was
incredible! I could tell that

Why is it that almost every

almost $17,000 to go here out
of state and I think pretty much
everything should be included
in that, football tickets, health
services, printing paper and
anything that SGA might want

I found out that both of my

To the guy who thought I was "too

To be or not to
be debt free
Credit cards can be positive for students
RYAN COBEY
OPINION WRITER
Picture yourself walking to class, passing
Wright Plaza and having a small pink piece of
paper thrust into your open hand. As you look
to see what it says, the first thing you notice
is large, obnoxiously bold print stating some-
thing like "Free medium one-topping Dominos
Pizza Your eyes widen, your mouth salivates
at the sheer thought of a piece of Dominos pizza
because by now it's lunch time and you have at
least two more classes to attend before you can
even think about eating.
Then you see the extremely small text at the
bottom, which reads, "Conditions apply
We've all been there. We've all been solic-
ited to apply for credit cards by little pink slips
during our school day. This one piece of paper
seems to target the exact needs and desires of
the typical poor college student in order to lure
them in to applying for a credit card.
This may sound like a cruel and downright
evil tactic to get students like us, who have no
money to begin with, to activate a credit card
and start purchasing things we can't afford.
However, we tend to think less about the positive
aspects of having a credit card as a student.
Recently, newspaper articles have stirred up
controversy concerning the dangers students
face when credit card companies solicit them,
even their own university. ECU for example,
has their own card for which students can apply.
Because of this, we as students are forgetting
the reason why most people get credit cards in
the first place - to build up their credit.
In a time when the average college student
graduates and begins their career well into their
twenties, it is a good idea to start building up
your credit while you still have a few years left.
I'm not sure where many of you see yourselves,
but by the age of 25 I want to be able to afford
a semi-decent car and rent out or even consider
buying a home for myself. In order to do this, I'm
going to need to build up a positive credit line
before most car companies would even consider
selling me an automobile that I would have to
make monthly payments on.
I won't deny that too many of us put our-
selves at serious risk by running up our credit
card bill, but that is something that cannot be
blamed on anyone but ourselves. Who are you
to blame the credit card company for soliciting
you with a free pizza? Did they force a gun to
your head and make you apply?
The key to successfully building up credit
is responsibility. You don't have to look at
credit cards as debt-supplying monsters if you
are responsible enough to not go overboard on
purchases and make regular payments. In fact,
it is a good idea to build your credit score before
you even graduate, and the easiest way to do
that is to spend as much on your card as you
can afford to pay back every month, even if it's
only 10 or 20 dollars.
In my opinion, the people who complain
about the solicitation of credit cards on campus
are the same people who are not responsible
enough to pay back what they owe. So, if you
know you won't be able to keep your payments up
to date, go purchase a double cheeseburger off of
the McDonald's Dollar Menu and save yourself
the trouble of applying for a free pizza.
Don't miss
mid-terms
November elections fast approaching
JESSE PENCE
OPINION WRITER
If you stopped and asked students walking
around campus about the upcoming elections, I
doubt that many are planning to vote in Novem-
ber, and I bet even fewer even know who's running
in their district.
Little do many students know, but the people
who have real power over your life are asking you
to help them keep that power. You can either give
them that help, or tell them to take a hike. This
year's mid-term elections, coming up next month,
will go a long way toward setting the course
of events in our country and in the world for a
long time.
Have you been paying attention? If yes, then
good for you! If not, there is still time to educate
yourself and participate in your democracy. Not
nearly enough Americans come out to vote and
voice their opinion on the issues that affect their
everyday lives.
However, before you can vote, you must
register. And, the last day to register in North
Carolina is Oct. 13, so hurry up and register if
you aren't already.
The mid-term election results have a ripple
effect throughout the country. The congress is
up for grabs, and these are the people who pass
the laws and make decisions that directly affect
you. Unfortunately, as history has shown, it is
more than likely ECU students will not take the
time to vote.
It seems to me that most young people decide
it is easier to complain than it is to get out and
vote. What's worse is that they don't even realize
how simple and quick voting actually is. Even if
you do not have the ability to give money or time
to a cause, you should vote.
If you can't get home to your polling place,
get an absentee ballot as soon as you can and
vote early. Take the initiative and be counted in
the democratic process.
So unless you want people, possibly out of touch
with the issues that actually affect you, to be the
only ones who voice their opinion and have input
on who runs our country: Go register and go vote!

Annual Allstars for the
Homeless event
ADELINE TRENTO
STAFF WRITER
The resident advisors of
Umstead Residence Hall will
hold their Annual All-stars for the
Homeless event this Tuesday, Oct.
10. The Annual All-stars lor the
Homeless event, which will last
for 24 hours, will begin at 3 p.m.
on Tuesday outside of the Blount
House on loth street.
For the event, the RAs of
Umstead are going to construct a
cardboard "house" that volunteers
will live in for 24 hours. Volun-
teers will take shifts living in the
box to educate people about what
it is like to be homeless. The shifts
will be about an hour long, and
many dorm coordinators, honor
students, RAs and Residence
Life staff members have already
volunteered to take a shift in the
cardboard box.
The goal of this event is to
raise awareness about the home-
less in Greenville.
"A lot of people don't think
of Greenville as having homeless
people said Jessica Barber, an
RA from Umstead. "People don't
see a lot of homeless around so
they think there aren't any home-
less people here, but there are
people in our community without
homes
Along with raising aware-
ness, the Annual All-stars for the
Homeless event is a fundraiser.
Students are encouraged to come
by throughout the 24 hours and
drop off any clothes, food and
non perishable items that they
can give.
All of the proceeds will be
donated to the First Born Orga-
nization and the Greenville Com-
munity Shelter.
"We just want people to give
whatever they can said Barber.
"We hope to donate as much as
possible to these organizations so
they can help a lot of people in our
community
Students that don't have any
items to donate can always donate
their time, and volunteer for a
shift in the cardboard home by
e-mailing Christina Spearman at
Spearmanc@ecu.edu

GREEKS
continued from Al
Office of Greek Life and Keith
Tingley, assistant director of
the Office of Greek Life, agree
that the biggest problem when
it comes to dealing with issues
and concerns about misconduct
and enforcing accountability is
not having substantial proof.
They stated that most of what
they hear about in regards to mis-
conduct comes from non-members
making anonymous reports.
"People always tell us
about stuff this organization
did this on this date We've
gotten anonymous letters from
people that don't want to come
forward and they expect us to
do something about it, yet they
won't tell us who they are
said Tingsley.
"You can't go on hearsay
because you never know who is
trying to get whom in trouble
Christian said. "You want to go
on fact and you want to be able to
investigate it correctly
With Romary's presenta-
tions, students are becoming
more aware of the services being
offered to them and how they can
get in touch with him.
Romary's job, as he put it, is
to give advice, and that he does
not and cannot represent stu-
dents privately. He put this clause
in his own contract. Anything
discussed with him is completely
confidential because he is bound
by attorney-client privilege.
Romary wants students to
know that there are resources
available on campus that are
there for them .ind that they
can trust, including the victim's
advocate offices, the counseling
center and himself.
"I want to have it where there's
absolute trust between students
and those places Romary said.
"And if I see anything that I can
do to affect an establishment
of that trust or anything I can
do to help the students to help
make changes in policies so that
trust can be put back there, I'm
going to do it. I'm going to
advocate for the students.
It can put me in a precarious
situation, but quite
honestly I don't care.
I'm here to advocate on behalf
of the students and their
legal rights
Romary has been the SGA
attorney for 12 years, and this
is the first year he has had
on-campus hours outside
of his office. Now he has the
responsibility of going to classes
and talking about legal issues
as a university employee. But
Romary's loyalties are with stu-
dents first, and students should
know they can trust him.
Romary's services are paid
for by student fees, and therefore
he sees himself as the student's'
attorney and not as an employee
of the university. He is not
connected to any other part of
Student Life or any part of the
university, and not linked with
Student Rights and Responsibili-
ties or Academic Affairs.

Preacher condemns students' lifestyles
Speaker ignites angry
response
ZACK HILL
STAFF WRITER
A familiar face to many at
ECU reappeared in front of Joyner
Library for nearly three hours on
Wednesday, drawing a crowd of
mostly hecklers that, at times,
swelled to over one hundred.
Donny Morris, a member
of Union Grove Cavalry Holi-
ness Church in Georgia, began
speaking about Christianity and
the Bible to a small gathering of
students and staff around noon.
Within minutes, Morris began
attracting more listeners as he
condemned the lifestyles of many
ECU students.
"Christ did not die on the
cross to give you a life of sin
said Morris.
Leigh Cleland, junior biology
major, said she confronted Morris
for telling one of her friends that
he was not Christian because his
parents were not Christian.
"I told him that he was a hypo-
crite and he had no right to con-
demn this man said Cleland.
Morris, who is not a minis-
ter, encouraged the students to
express their beliefs and engaged
in several heated debates.
Jacqueta Thomas, freshman
nursing major, expressed her
Christian beliefs to Morris and
accused him of hypocrisy for
attacking students. She stood
directly in front of Morris as he
spoke, telling the crowd, "turn

around right now and ignore him
Some felt Morris should not
be allowed to speak at ECU.
"1 don't think the school
should allow him to come on
campus. This is my space said
Mark Dunn, junior communica-
tions major.
Though often provoking
anger, Morris himself remained
calm even when the confronta-
tions became heated.
"If I've made any of you feel
bad or guilty for your sins, I'm
glad. That means I'm doing my
job Morris said.
Many just stood and watched,
preferring to observe rather than
participate.
Freshman health and fitness
major Corey Boatwright was
among those who took a less
active role in the debates.
"It's OK to have opinions, but
I just don't know what his aim is
said Boatwright.
When the East Carolinian
asked Morris why he came to
ECU to speak, his answer was
simple, "you

ECU SCHEDULE
VIRGINIA
1. Run the ball:
Just like ECU, the Cavaliers have struggled to run the
ball. They are averaging just 2.4 yards per carry on
the ground and a measly 62 yards per game, which
is next to last in Division l-A.
2. Force turnovers:
ECU has yet to play a game without any turnovers. The
Pirates defense, which leads the nation in takeaways,
has kept them in games. If the Cavaliers want to win
this game, they must win the turnover battle, which
would mean spying quarterback James Pinkney.
3. Hit the big play:
The Cavaliers have just two plays in five games to go
for over 25 yards. ECU allowed a 60-yard catch
and run against West Virginia, which changed
the momentum of that game. Virginia needs
similar plays to take the crowd out of the
game and pull off the upset.
ECU seeks second win
against Cavaliers
RON CLEMENTS
SENIOR WRITER
Coming off an open date with
more people missing practice than
the previous week is not how Skip
Holtz wanted to begin his week of
preparation for ECU's date with
Virginia on Saturday.
A flu bug swept through the
ECU football team over the weekend,
keeping 11 players out of practice
Sunday night and a handful of play-
ers still out with nagging injuries.
"I have a couple of concerns on
the injury front said Holtz. "I was
hoping with the off date we would
have the opportunity to get some
people back again. We still have a
number of players that are sidelined
with injuries. We are not sure if they
are questionable, doubtful or day-to-
day. We are going to have to see as
we go along
"The other thing that concerns
me is a flu bug going through this
football team now. They lose their
weight and lose their strength. I
think they will be fine by game-
time, but I worry about the
interrupted preparation for
the game
A few starters with
nagging problems
highlight the injury
report. Chris Johnson
(turf toe),
Aundrae Allison (ankle), Brandon
Setzer (knee) and Shauntae Hunt
(knee) could all miss Saturday's
game with the Cavaliers.
"We're not sure yet running
backs coach Junior Smith said about
whether or not Johnson will be able
to play Saturday. "He's kind of day-
to-day. It's depends on how he does
today
Should Johnson, who leads the
Pirates with 190 yards rushing and
three touchdowns, not be able to
go, Holtz said they have a "healthy
competition" going at tailback.
"It's unfortunate Chris Johnson
hasn't been able to practice during
this open date, but Brandon Frac-
tious has done a lot of good work
Holtz said. "With Dominique Lind-
say out, a guy like Brandon Simmons
may have a chance to play a little
bit more of that roll for us. He's a
bigger and more physical back. We
miss that big, physical back. He's
breaking tackles. He's not a guy that
anyone really knows right now, but I
think due to the injuries to our run-
ning backs, this is what we are down
to at this point and he will definitely
play on Saturday
Fractious said he's ready to fill
the possible void.
"If the opportu-
nity comes, it's time
to step up said
Fractious, who
is second on

1. Run the ball:
With the injuries in the backfield, getting the running
game going against a good Virginia front seven will
be difficult, but it's a must. The Pirates inconsistent
running has caused quarterback James Pinkney to take
some shots in the backfield. Establishing the run early
will be important to loosen up the Cavalier defense and
set up the play action and passing game.
2. Pressure Jameel Sewell:
The Pirates must get to, and hit, Sewell. This will be the
toughest road environment the freshman has yet to face,
and the Pirates must contain his athleticism and force him
into mistakes.
3. Win field position:
The Cavaliers thumped Duke by playing much of the
game with a short field. Virginia forced five turnovers in
Durham and its longest scoring drive was 46 yards. The
Pirates have to be solid in special teams, cannot turn
the ball over, and need to make the struggling Cavalier
offense drive the length of the field to score.
"We don't think much in terms of
the environment whatsoever. If you
do that you are either building in
built-in reasons why you can't win.
I don't hear business men going
to a different city and saying, 'Just
because I'm conducting a meeting
in Pittsburgh instead of in Boston,
I probably can't close the sale
GROH
HOLTZ
"It's an important game for several
reasons. It's an important game for
our program, to have the opportunity
to play an ACC team. It's important
for our players' morale Sitting
here with three losses is not where
they want to be. But it's the next
game on the schedule. I haven't

GAME
continued from Bl
tin- team with N6 yards on the
ground.
The Pirates have pulled fresh-
man quarterback Dwayne Harris
oil the si out team and have been
working him in at tailback to see
if his athleticism could be useful
against an active Virginia defense.
"Dwayne Harris is such a
great athlete Holtz said. "You
put him back there and give him
the ball, he's gonna end up some-
where with it. We're not sure
where right now, but he's gonna
make everybody stand up
Another player in the competition
that has impressed I Ioltz is Simmons.
Running the ball against a stout
Cavalier front seven which held
1 )nke to minus one yard rushing in
Virginia's 37-0 win in Durham last
Week will not be easy, especially
for an ECU offense that has been
inconsistent at running the ball.
The coaches used the off week
to see why they have struggled
to run the ball. ECU (1-3, 1-1
Conference USA) was held to
41 yards on the ground against
fourth-ranked West Virginia.
Holtz and offensive coordinator
Steve Shankweiler have been
reshuffling the offensive line to
try to find the best fit.
The coaches have tried to
reserve center Stephen Heis at
tackle, starting center Tom Wing-
enbach at guard and starting
left guard Matt Butler at center.
True freshman guard Cory Dow-
less may see the redshirt come
off of him this week, as the 6-5,
313-pounder has taken some
snaps w ith the top unit this week.
"We looked at what we were
doing and trying to find the prob-
lem, and some of it's the running
back and some of it's the offensive
line Holtz said. "Other times it's
the defensive personnel that we are
playing. It's been a combination of
things. We have taken a look to
try to find the right chemistry
mix. We want to get the right
players on the field at the right
time and in the right position
The Cavaliers (2-3, 1-1 ACC)
have allowed just 104 yards on
the ground and recorded eight
sacks in their win last week at
Duke. Redshirt freshman defen-
sive end Jeffrey Fitzgerald leads
the Wahoos in tackles for a loss
with seven.
"We have our hands full this
week Holtz said. "Virginia has
done a nice job especially as a
defensive football team. They are
extremely competitive and very
strong. The strength of their foot-
ball team would be up front, on the
front four. Virginia has given up
about two yards a carry. Defen-
sively, they're extremely feisty up
front with their front seven
While Virginia's defense,
which is allowing a meager 12
first downs per game, has Holtz
concerned, ECU's defense has
caught the attention of Virginia's
top man, Al Groh.
The Cavaliers will bring
a freshman quarterback to
Greenville to face a Pirate defense,
which Groh referred to as "ball-
hawking The Pirates lead the
nation in takeaways with 14.
Their secondary is very much
a veteran secondar" said Groh.
"I think they had five intercep-
tions against Memphis State,
returned two "
for touchdowns.
It's very atten-
tion getting.
It's certainly
something for
us to be very
alert to address
and as we've
been speaking
here today, we
do have a young
quarterback,
and Qwe need
to make sure
that he under-
stands that people on the other
side want to catch his passes
as much as his guys do, and
those kind of things usually
wet a secondary's appetite and
they kind of get the fever, and
when they get the fever, they want
a few more
Virginia's win over Duke
marked the first time the 2-3 Cav-
aliers scored more than 13 points.
Many of their scoring drives were
set up by their defense, as the
offense continued to struggle. In
the five scoring drives against
the Blue Devils, UVa's cumulative
yardage was 97, and the longest
scoring drive was just 46 yards.
Though Virginia's offense has
struggled and the Pirates are a
6.5-point favorite, Holtz said his
team is cautiously optimistic.
"This is still a talented and
powerful Virginia football team
Holtz said. "We have to remember
they are coming out of the ACC and
we're in a building and growing
progress. We can't go into the game
thinking we're very confident"
The game against Virginia
will be the third in a five-game
home stand for the Pirates, with
the first two games against Mem-
phis and West Virginia being
played in front of near-sellout
crowds that Holtz referred to as
"electric Groh said his young
quarterback should remain
poised in front the hostile crowd.
"1 don't think somebody from
the stands has picked off a pass yet
Groh said. "If you can only play
quarterback on Tuesday when it's
nice and quiet, then you probably
have no business playing quarter-
back in college. It is part of being
a quarterback. There is so much
more that goes into this position
than throwing the ball. That's why
it is a little bit different to be a quar-
terback on a college football team
than on the Sunday afternoon rec-
reation league flag-football team.
"With all the things that they
have to do, it's the most complex,
most dynamic, most challenging
position in organized sports today.
You think of all the other athletes
- that have to do
"We don't want to be the
one-hit wonder where we

things with
precision; golf-
ers, free throw
shooters, base-
ball hitters,
tennis players.
Those things
are very diffi-
cult to do with
precision and
nobody's run-
ning at them
and trying to
hit them
The game
is expected to be a near sellout
again, with the Wahoos expect-
ing to bring around 5,000 fans
to Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
Groh said he doesn't place too
much stock in where the game
is played.
"We don't think much in
terms of the environment what-
soever Groh said, if you do that
you are either building in built-in
reasons why you can't win. I think
every time the coach stands up
and says, 'Well, it's a very hostile
environment, it's a tough place to
play he's telling everybody that
their expectations of winning are
less than it would be under other
circumstances. I don't hear busi-
ness men going to a different city
and saying, Just because I'm con-
ducting a meeting in Pittsburgh
instead of in Boston, I probably
can't close the sale
Holtz said the Virginia
offense, which has used four dif-
ferent quarterback in five games,
with three of those four throwing
touchdown passes, is still "search-
ing for its identity They may
have found it in Sewell.
The 6-3,215-pound freshman
leads the Cavs in passing with 271
yards with a pair of touchdowns
and interceptions. His athleticism
separates him from the other
Wahoo quarterbacks. The left-
handed Richmond native has
gained 62 yards on the ground,
and his ability to make plays on
the run, is what has Holtz wor-
ried.
"He is the most athletic,
mobile, agile quarterback of the
three because of the way he can
run and move Holtz said. The
Cavaliers have allowed 17 sacks in
five games and are averaging just
2.4 yards per carry. Still, Holtz
said Virginia's young offensive
line is "as good as any we are
going to play The Cavs do not
start a senior on their offensive
line, but their size and athleticism
reminds Holtz of their potential.
"Their strength is talent and
athletic ability Holtz said. "They
are extremely young on the offen-
sive line, but they are all about
6-6 and 300 pounds across the
board. They are a great looking
group. They are very talented,
athletic and young. They are
inexperienced so they make some
mistakes. When you watch them
on film, a mistake here and there
may be making a difference in
their wins and losses but if you
look at them overall they are a
very talented offensive line
As Virginia's offense con-
tinues to improve, so has ECU's
defense. Holtz says they're not yet
where he wants them to be.
"Our defense played well
against West Virginia and did
some very good things, but that
doesn't make you a very good
defensive football team. What
makes you a good defensive foot-
ball team is when you can consis-
tently do it week after week and
that's the challenge that we have
right now. We don't want to be
the one-hit wonder where we look
back and say we had one good
week against West Virginia. The
reality is we still gave up 27 points
and that's too many
As ECU's final game before
getting back into conference
matchups, Holtz said it's an
important game, but not just to
build momentum for next week's
game against defending Confer-
ence USA champion Tulsa.
it's an important game for
several reasons Holtz said. "It's
an important game for our pro-
gram, to have the opportunity to
play an ACC team. It's important
for our players' morale. They've
worked extremely hard and our
expectations are very high. Sitting
here with three losses is not where
they want to be. But it's the next
game on the schedule. I haven't
looked at it like this is important
for the one down the road; this is
important because it's now

Pirates return home to
take on Marshall
TOMMY GRAHAM
STAFF WRITER
The women's soccer team is
looking forward to returning home.
Coming off a four game road trip
where they went 1-1-2, ECU (5-
5-2,0-l-l Conference USA) looks
for their first conference win as
Marshall travels to Bunting Field.
The Pirates have never lost
to the Thundering Herd with
the only game coming last year
in Huntington, W.Va. Despite
Marshall's record (4-5-1, 0-2-
O C-USA), Rob Donnenwirth
knows his team is in for some
tough competition.
"Marshall is a good team
that's faced some good competi-
tion said ECU's all-time win
ningiest head coach.
Marshall and ECU both
played Memphis and UAB over
the past weekend. ECU tied
Memphis 1-1 and lost to UAB in
overtime 1-0. Marshall played on
alternate days, recording an 8-0
loss to the Tigers and a 3-2 defeat
to the Blazers.
In four seasons, Chris Kane, a
1995 graduate of LaSalle Univer-
sity has coached the Thundering
Herd to an 11-49-5 record. His
squad is led by junior Kassie
Hollman, who through 10 games
has recorded seven goals and 17
points for the team, which ranks
as sixth and seventh in confer-
ence respectively. The Pirates
will also have to contend with
freshman Julia Axelsson, who
is second on the team with 19
points and four goals scored.
The Friday tilt is a must win
for the Pirates because they are
winless in the conference with
only seven games remaining.
Donnenwirth is stressing for the
forwards to step up and for the
defense to continue its strong
play. As of the game against Perm,
ECU is 3-1 after a loss. However,
the Pirates are last in the confer-
ence for shots attempted with
only 107 total through 12 games.
In comparison, the Thundering
Herd is 10th in conference with
127. ECU is 1-2 at home.

'School for Scoundrels' makes the grade
Good writing makes this
comedy a must see
BEN HARRIS
STAFF WRITER
For the past several months
I've concentrated on seeing
dramas. Dramas continually prove
to be my best bet when it comes
to making good use of my hard-
earned $7.50. I have completely
given up on the horror genre.
Horrible acting, cheesy writ-
ing and the constant remakes
have completely laid waste to
what was once a great division of
American movie making.
Comedies have also disap-
pointed me. The last great comedy
I saw was Wedding Crashers and
that was over a year agu. However,
after a stressful week I decided to
take a chance on comedy again
to try and get a few laughs. The
movie's premise in simple and
refreshingly original. It involves
the comedic staple, the lovable
loser Roger, who is trying to
get the girl who is definitely out
of his league, Amanda. I know
you're thinking that you've seen
that same storyline in a thousand
other movies so how can this one
be so original.
The original part is that
instead ofjust spending the movie
doing all sorts of oddball things
by himself to get the girl: he
enrolls in a self-help class taught
by an extremely suave and conde-
scending individual, the sly Dr.
P. The class teaches him to have
confidence in himself and go after
what he wants and it somehow,
beyond all explanation, makes
him "cool
Dr. P, in an attempt to main-
tain his leader of the pack status,
challenges his star student and
attempts to steal Amanda from
him. Needless to say hilarity
ensues as the two battle it out to
determine which one is the better
man. The writing in this movie
also sets it apart from other com-
edies and helps it tremendously
in being original. The endless
amount of well-written gags is
guaranteed to make you laugh.
Unlike many comedies, the gags
aren't just stuck in there at random
times to get laughs. They are
actually written into the plot very
well and coexists with the events
transcribing in the film. The dia-
logue is pretty well-written also.
Even though, like every comedy,
this movie has some cheesy and
overused dialogue it contains
very little of it and disguises it
very well.
I decided on School for Scoun-
drels mostly because of its cast.
The roster contains many comedic
powerhouses. Jon Heder, who rose
to fame with Napoleon Dynamite,
Billy Bob Thorton and Jon Heder star in the latest comedy from the director of Old School.

Beck's The Information
Beck embraces new
ideas with new album
JOHN BOSCO
STAFF WRITER
The problem with music
reviews, especially mine, is that
they're usually written by music
snobs who think that they know
it all when it comes to music and,
furthermore, if you disagree with
them, you're probably not going
to see eye to eye on much of any-
thing. It is described perfectly in
the film (adapted from the book)
High Fidelity as being the self-pro-
claimed underappreciated scholar
of the world, with maybe a slightly
more vulgar choice of descriptors
in the film.
The other problem with
reviews is that there's so much
that influences your opinion of
an album other than the music
itself. How respectable an artist's
past releases are, the atmosphere
- whether or not you're listening
to something by choice or if your
roommate is blaring his or her
lame new mega-pop album at full
volume - definitely effects your
perception of something, what the
buzz around it already is, and the
list doesn't end there. Sometimes
it tikes a while to fall in love
with an album, and sometimes
it just clicks.
It's with that giant disclaimer
that I begin the review of what I'm
considering one of Beck's finest
albums and probably one of the
best albums of 2006.
On first listen, this album
comes off how you'd expect a Beck
album to come off-just like Beck.
And Beck knows how to throw
a fork in his music; it seems like
every album he's released has
been different than all the others,
yet they seem to all fall under
Beck's signature sound perfectly.
Midnite Vultures was radically dif-
ferent than Odelay (some would
argue radically weirder, too),
and his project with the Elaming
Lips, while amazingly good, was
a huge departure from his break-
through sound characterized by
his nerdy rap-rock hit "Loser
The Information is no different;
it's Beck at his best, still pushing
forward his lyrics and vocals to
another level and grooving music
rhythms that you are bound to fall
in love with.
This album has something
for everyone. Slower, less lyri-
cally crammed tracks like the
title track, "The Information" and
"Movie Theme" are reminiscent of
his sound with the Flaming Lips
and are tunes everyone can appre-
ciate, but the album offers so much
more for those who love when
Beck just gets on the mic with no
reservations and lets it flow in his
strangely brilliant way.
In "lOOOBPM one of the
albums best tracks (yet the short-
est), Beck rhymes, "Telemarketing
people will sell you the head-
sets on their skulls, selling you
wisdom from a Plexiglas prism.
Biochemical gism gets you into
this rhythm over a rhythmic,
pounding bassline and computer-
ized, distorted drums.
The track "Cellphone's Dead"
is similar in that it emphasizes
a funky, heavy bassline and nice
rhythmic section with Beck rap-
ping his two cents in a relaxed,
cool voice. The track features one
of the greatest lines on the album,
when Beck asks to, "Fix the beat,
now break the rest, make a kick
drum sound like an S.O.S
Maybe the coolest thing about
this album is that Beck is stepping
out of the box not only musically
- but from a marketing standpoint,
too. In order to make it more desir-
able to music fans to actually buy
the album or download it legally
instead of pirating it offline, he's
offering all sorts of new gimmicks
to convince you.
The CD comes with a blank
insert that encourages you to per-
sonalize your disc by customizing
the cover with a sheet of stickers,
which are included with purchase
of the album. Both the online
version and CD version of the
album include a low-budget videos

CD version, or available for down-
load with purchase of the online
version) made for each track that
listeners can then splice and edit
plays Roger and does a good job
of getting a few laughs from the
audience but there is only so far
he can take his Napoleon Dynamite
character before it becomes even
more overused than it already is.
I would like to see him take on
some variety before he turns into
another Adam Sandier. Billy Bob
Thorton, who plays Dr. P, does an
excellent job as the condescend-
ing, narcissistic badass. Despite
what many people say, I con-
sider Thorton to be a great actor
because he has time and time again
proved himself in both comedies,
dramas (Slingblade anyone?), and
action films.
Michael Clark Duncan, best
known for The Green Mile, plays
Lester. Duncan does a great job
playing the muscle-bound body-
guardsidekick to Dr. P. He uses

Spotlight: Hannah Allam
Risking her life so that
we will know what's
really happening
STACY DAIL
STAFF WRITER
Sudan, Iran, Iraq, Syria and
Kuwait. For most people, these
places are the furthest away from
where they would consider visiting,
and the idea of living there would
never cross their mind.
But for reporter Hannah Allam,
other people's nightmares have
become her reality, and it's not such
a bad thing after all.
While other writers are report-
ing about local thefts or gas prices,
Allam is out on the front lines
giving America a vivid look at
what's going on in Iraq and other
troubled countries.
In January of 2006, Allam took
the position as the Middle East
Bureau Chief in Cairo, Egypt for
McClatchy Newspapers.
Being that she is only 28 years
old, Allam has definitely gone above
and beyond what most reporters
would ever dream of accomplishing
in their career.
She spent over two years as the
Baghdad Bureau Chief, reporting
on the war in Iraq. Throughout
the past year, she has risked her
life reporting in countries such as
Somalia, Sudan, Iran, Iraq, Leba-
non, Kuwait and Austria, just to

name a few.
Finding and reporting stories
that most reporters could only
dream of getting their hands on
isn't an easy job for Allam. She
really has reported from "behind
enemy lines and has been on a bus
that was bombed, and even saved
the life of her translator from Iraq.
She truly understands what
real journalism is about, especially
when it involves the Middle East.
This was recognized when she
was named "Journalist of the Year
2004" by the National Association
of Black Journalist.
The recognition didn't end
there though. That same year she
was also awarded for her war cov-
erage by Knight Rider Newspapers
and was honored with the Journal-
ism Excellence Award.
The Overseas Press Club also
awarded her, along with two of
her colleagues from the Bagh-
dad bureau, with its Hal Boyle
Award of 2005. This award is given
to the best newspaper reporting
from abroad. She also ended that
year with the John S. Knight Gold
Medal.
Allam will be delivering a
speech at Mendenhall Student
Center on Friday at 2 p.m and all
students are welcome to attend to
hear about her sure to be interest-

Green Grass Cloggers
Celebrate 35 years
SARAH CAMPBELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
If you can't imagine spending
another weekend plastered in front
of the television, or the thought of a
night downtown in blister inducing
heels make you cringe, the Green
Grass Cloggers may be just the
entertainment you're craving.
For thirty-five years this group
of dancers has been traveling
throughout the state putting on
energetic performances that are
sure to leave your toes tapping.
This weekend the GGC's will
be celebrating 35 years of clogging
since their founding here at ECU
in 1971. Inspired by the mountain
style clogging teams they saw
perform, several students decided
to create their own unique variety
of clogging with influences in
flatfoot, Western square dance and
buck dancing.
Throughout the first several
years of their creation to team
traveled throughout the state per-
forming for crowds and gaining
popularity along the way. In 1972
and 1974 they won the prestigious
title of World Champion Cloggers
thanks in large part to their audi-
ence appeal.
In 1977 the road team relocated
to Asheville, N.C. and toured as a
professional dance company both
nationally and internationally for
10 years. The home team remained
in Greenville where they performed
locally and throughout the state.
Today the GCC's are still

making waves- with their per-
formances throughout N.C. The
group consists of both women and
men ranging in age from 12-60
years old. Not much has changed
in the past 35 years, the only
major difference is that the "road
team" no longer performs on a
regular basis.
The teams still don traditional
calico dresses, blue jeans and black
shoes during performances despite
a style evolution. They value tra-
dition and savor the opportunity
to take some time out of their
hectic lives to relive a time
when things were lighthearted
and whimsical.
This weekend, October 5-8,
you can catch the GCC'S when
both the home and road teams
reunite for their 35th anniversary
in Silk Hope, N.C. for the Shakori
Hills Grassroots Festival. The
entire weekend will be filled with
a variety of dancing accompanied
by various bands
The festival is sure to offer
something to please people from
all walks of life, whether it be
clogging lessons or performances.
Sometimes a trip down memory
lane is all you need to recharge and
revive after a long week of stress.

the GCC'S you can visit their Web

tory, photo albums or performance

R.E.M. offers history lesson with And I Feel Fine'
New compilation
reviews the indie-rock
band's early years
LLOYD NEWMAN
STAFF WRITER
Frequently it seems, I am
having to defend the 1980s as a
decade of music. My claims that
it rivals the 1960s as the best era
in the history of rock and roll
are usually met with shock and
immediate refusal. These people
don't listen to R.E.M.
For seven years in the early
and mid 1980s this band appeared
unstoppable, not only releasing
five consecutive albums which
are today considered classics, but
doing so at a pace that would make
Ryan Adams jealous. For the first
time in nearly 20years, I.R.S the
band's storied first record label,
has compiled the best tracks from
this historically fruitful period,
releasing And I Feel Fine: The
Best of the I.R.S. Tears 1982-1987
last week.
The first disc of And I Feel
Fine features all the great songs
that have cemented R.E.M. as the
seminal indie-rock band. "Radio
Free Europe "So. Central Rain
"The One I Love" and of course,
the title track "It's the End of the
World as we Know, It are all
here in their remastered glory.
It's a very democratic album,
and with four songs from each of
their first five records, all of the
band's early forms are equally
represented, from the folk and
americanna stylings of "Pilgrim-
BECK

with their personal computers to
create original, innovative music
videos for his songs. Whether
or not there will be some sort of
contest has yet to be announced,
but it wouldn't surprise me if
there was some way for listen-
ers to post Beck videos online in
the future.
What The Information boils
down to is that Beck's forward
thinking is both experimental and
smart, too. Musically, the album
delivers head on and in my opin-
ion may be one of the best Beck
albums ever, though we'll have to
see what's still to come.
Final Grade: A

age" and "(Don't Go Back To)
Rockville" to the heavier "Begin
the Begin Spanning 21 tracks,
I.R.S. took little chance here,
expanding wildly on their last
R.E.M. release, the 1988 singles
collection Eponymous.
In any greatest hits compila-
tion, there are going to be those
pining for songs overlooked,
especially when talking about a
band as prolific and as consis-
tently incredible as R.E.M. Sure,
I would have loved to see tunes
like "Harborcoat "Laughing"
or "Superman" make the cut, but
that's the beauty of it. The clas-
sics came so thick during this
era that once you get past the
obvious choices you could almost
pick at random and still get a
representative and thoroughly
entertaining collection.
For many of us, the sole draw
of this package save for the col-
lectability is the second disc,
which compiles
demos, outtakes
and live tracks as
well as personal
favorites from
each of the band
members. Among
the winners here
is the early "Hib-
tone" version
of Radio Free
Europe, the first
song ever released
by R.E.M. back
in 1981, and in
it's sped-up and
louder form, an
example of the
band's punkier
origins. Also
included is the unreleased track
"Bad Day which was originally
slated for release with 1986's
Life's Rich Pageant before being
shelved and later made into this
collection's title track. While
nearly all of these songs are avail-
able elsewhere, the convenience of
having them officially released on
a single disc makes this set worth
it's price alone.
On paper, the premise behind
And I Feel Fine seems almost
unfair. Taking the best songs
from the best era of one of the best
bands in the history of the world
will obviously yield a ridiculously
good record. But it's a welcome
release, and one that manages to
please the R.E.M. diehard and the
R.E.M. novice alike.

continued from A4
well with that. Ben Stiller, who
in my opinion can't betn a bad
comedy, has a very small role as a
former student of Dr. P's looking
for revenge. All comedies have the
same three characteristics, they
base their existence on getting
the laugh instead of exhibiting
a thought-provoking plot, they
contain mediocre acting because
to get laughs an actor doesn't
exactly have to be Marlon Brando
(take Will Ferrell for example),
and the direction is usually sub-
par or average.
That being said, comedies are
usually the easiest thing for me to
watch because I don't go into the
movie with the same amount of
expectations as I would a drama
or even a high-class action movie.
The comedy has one purpose
and one purpose only and that
is to make the audience laugh.
They are an excellent way to
relax and laugh a little after a
stressful week.
On a scale of 1-10 with one
being a comedy straight out of the
most rotten outhouse in hell and
ten being a masterpiece of come-
dic cinema, School for Scoundrels
ranks at about a six. It's no where
near as good as Dumb and Dumber,
but it's a lot better than Dukes of
Haxxard. I predict this movie will
make around $40 to $50 million
domestically with a $10 million
opening day.
