Wildcats keep pace but fall in L.A.

photoLOS ANGELES - Despite an unexpected push that lasted three-and-a-half quarters, the Arizona football team fell 42-21 against No. 1 Southern California yesterday at Memorial Coliseum.

Arizona head coach Mike Stoops said his team showed plenty of positives against a USC squad that "has no weaknesses."
The afternoon looked like it would be a bleak one for the Wildcats early.

After Arizona (1-4, 0-2 Pacific 10 Conference) went three-and-out on its opening possession, the Trojans drove 96 yards on 13 plays, culminating with a one-yard LenDale White touchdown run.

USC (5-0, 3-0 Pac-10) went on the offensive a second time after a second consecutive 54-yard Danny Baugher punt, only to have Wildcat senior safety Darrell Brooks force a fumble from Trojan tailback Desmond Reed near midfield. [Read article]

Message boards inspire debate


Provoking presentation pushes buttons on Mall

Students voiced their opinions with a marker and a message board yesterday about how pornography can push the buttons of pleasure or go overboard on the boundaries of purity.

Students from Campus Crusade for Christ set up a table and message board workshop on the UA Mall to promote "Porn Nation - The Naked Truth", a multimedia presentation about the effects of pornography.

Three two-sided billboards were set up for students to write their opinions of pornography. One billboard had to be put face down, however, because of inappropriate writing. [Read article]

Bear Down Blitz: Cats' epic task: besting No. 1 Trojans


Two-time defending national champions. No. 1 team in the nation. Winner of 26 straight games.

Trying to find a lead descriptive phrase for the Southern California football team isn't hard. Deciding which one to use is.

But as the Arizona football team heads to Los Angeles to take on the Trojans tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. on Fox Sports Net, Wildcats head coach Mike Stoops has decided to use a different, more simple title - Pacific 10 Conference opponent. [Read article]

Tenure's deadly grip on the betterment of academia


T enure is the golden chalice at the end of a long adventure. After battling through the trials of academia, seen as theses and lectures, a professor can be awarded the grand seal of approval and mark of a true academic: coveted, untouchable job security.

A tenured professor is relieved of the pressures of constant publication or research; he or she does not have to fear arbitrary release from contract or worry about the evaluations from disapproving officials. [Read article]

Bevelvision: High art for the whole family

The Mat Bevel Institute is the only bit of color you'll find on a nondescript stretch of road on North Stone Avenue, which leads into downtown. A barren enclosed yard fronts a sky-blue brick building with the word "Bevel" painted on its left corner. Except for the color there's really nothing much to the outside of the building.

Yet, the blah, humdrum exterior completely belies what you'll find inside. [Read article]

Season's fashion trends tend toward relaxed, femine looks

Fashion is a temperamental, unexplainable beast. It's quite the phenomenon to think that people will dress in the same style without an explicit agreement.

Take for example the flappers of the '20s or the disco, glam rock era of the '70s or whatever the hell they were thinking in the '80s.

The unspoken group assent to style is inexplicable as far as trying to find its source. All we can do is observe the aftereffects. In regard to this fall fashion season, here are a few of the things that we've all somehow implicitly agreed to. [Read article]
