IVILK Provost: five dean vacancies'normal


search at
year away

By Laura Clark

The Martin Luther King Jr. Cul-
tural Center will go without a perma-
nent program director for the rest of
this academic year.

Veleashia Smith left her position
as director of the MLK Center at the
end of August following her resigna-
tion in the spring.

The search for a replacement will
not begin until UK has decided how
to reorganize multicultural affairs and
diversity efforts. said Pat Terrell. vice
president for student affairs.

The responsibility of reorganizing
falls to Judy “JJ.” Jackson. vice pres-
ident for institutional diversity. Jack-
son‘s began the new position on July

Jackson said her main aim was to
get to know the staff and the work
they‘ve been doing.

“I need to know what‘s already
going on. what‘s working well. and
then have some time to visit with
folks before I make too many deci-
sions about what needs to change."
.lackson said.

Smith's position is currently filled
by the first MLK Center director.
Chester Grundy. Grundy. interim di-
rector through June 2009. said be-
cause Jackson is new. she is still as—
sessing all of her resources and other
staff positions.

Grundy said holding this position
for an entire year was a smart deciv

“It Would be difficult to bring in a
new person in the middle of the year
to take Smith‘s position." he said.

Smith is now the assistant director
in the Office of Multicultural Affairs
at Western Kentucky University.
Smith could not be reached to com-
ment on the reorganization or why
she left.

Terrell said Smith resigned to be
closer to her family.

Also on Jackson's plate is the re-
placement of Mahjabeen Rafiuddin.
the former director of Student Diver—
sity Engagement who resigned in
June. Rafiuddin resigned. and like
Smith‘s position. hers remains un-
filled with no date for a replacement.

Once Rafiuddin's position is
filled. it will operate under a new title
and report to the Office of Student lnv
volvcment instead of the Office of
Multicultural Affairs. Terrell said.

the game. With the way the
defense has played through
the first two games. that
doesn‘t sound like too bad of
an idea.

Plus. Hartline has shown
the qualities of somebody
you want leading your team.
Amid'the pressure of replac-
ing All—Southeastem Confer-
ence quarterback Andre
Woodson and the saga of
Curtis Pulley. Hartline has
said and done all the right
things. His teammates and
coaches rave about his lead-
ership on and off the field
and have been behind him
from the moment Woodson
was drafted by the New York

But is leadership alone
enough to keep the starting
job? After all. Hartline doesn‘t
possess the speed. potential or
big—play ability that Cobb
does. plus it was pretty obvi-
ous Sunday who was running
the offense more efficiently.

Maybe five quarters was—
n‘t enough to warrant the

change at the qumterback po~
sition. but Brooks said they
had planned to play both
guys all along. That‘s why
Hartline. despite clearly being
outplayed by Cobb. started
the second half.

That brought about a
classless chorus of boos from
Commonwealth Stadium.
which was completely un—
called for given the limited
action we‘ve seen from both

"There‘s no place for that
in this stadium." Brooks said.
"Those two young men are
both inexperienced quarter—
backs. They‘re both going to
probably play as we move
forward. We need them both.
and we‘ll put the players on
the field when we need to win
the gatne. but we don‘t need
to be booing our own damn
players in Commonwealth
Stadium. That just makes me
sick to my stomach."

The spattering of jecrs
made it pretty obvious who
the nearly 70,000 fans want

throwing the pigskin. But that
isn‘t going to affect who
Brooks decides to go with utt-
der center. For now. Brooks
said he won‘t name a starter
for the Middle Tennessee
game until later this week and
that both will see the field for
the foreseeable future.

“If we’re not moving the
ball. we‘re going to shake it
up." Brooks said. “If I had
my druthers id rather not do
that. but that‘s where we are
right now and that‘s what
we‘re going to do.

“I know we're going to
probably have a lot of people
that want to help us make this
decision. but we‘re going to
do what‘s best for the young
men we're working with.“

Those people might not
be able to help make Brooks‘
decision. but there‘s certainly
nothing stopping them from
voicing their opinions.

UK never looked back in a 38—3
victory over Norfolk State. Eight min-
utes later. Cobb again put UK on the
board with a quarterback sneak on the 1-
yard line. The change was official.

But it wasn‘t. nor isn‘t. pemtanent.

Hartline re-entered the game at quar-

of the second half. the two quarterbacks

Brooks said the position was completely

I would rather not do that. but that‘s

With both quarterbacks looking to
split snaps. Hartline believes detenses
will have trouble game planning against
the Cats. a problem that was evident
with the Spartans.

“Definitely we give different types
of looks to keep defenses guessing.“
Hartline said. “Randall can throw and
run. We‘re both young to the game. so
we try and help each other as much as
we cart.“

While the quarterback competition
stole the show. Brooks said he did see
another improvement for the offense W
the rttnning game. Sophomore Derrick
Locke led all backs with 06 yards on
five camcs and one touchdown Sopho—
more Moncell Allen ran for 71 yards on
seven can‘ies ~ all iii the fourth quarter
,7 and one touchdown. Not what
Brooks called a great running attack. but

“We're a little happier." junior Al-
fonso Smith said. “Felt we could have
done more. But c\ eryone got otit there
and we were pounding them.“

The defense also continued its domi~
nancc on the field. Despite a few drives

deep into l'K territory. Norfolk State
came away with only one field goal. It‘s
the first time [K has opcncd the season
without allowing a touchdown since
1958. It‘s also the first time the (‘ats
havcn‘t allowed their opponent to score
a touchdown in consecutnc games since

and Vanderbilt scoreless. That type of
defensive performance wasn‘t exactly
what Brooks had in mind when the sca~
son started.

"Did I expect us to only gixc up
three points.“ Brooks said. "Probably
not. But now I think we can do better.“

"There‘s still a lot ot room tor im-

seems nothing can knock L‘K off its
perch. Not even a competition.
