Chad Gilpin has been to the nation
al tournament each of the three years
of his career. been an All-American
twice and was national runner-up last

He is the favorite to win the Nation-
al Collegiate Boxing Association na-
tional championship, and he was in
New York City last week representing
UK in the New York Athletic Club Col-
lege Boxing Invitational. a one-match
exhibition featuring some of the best
boxers in the nation.

He can also tell you what it's like to
be waylaid by a national champion
boxer who outweighs you by 50

And. he’s an art studio major with
a focus in photography.

Gilpin was the only boxer from
UK‘s club team attending the invita
tional. which is a showcase of the top
four boxers in the nation at each

Gilpin headed to New York Nov. 20.

some sightseeing before the fights Nov.

him from attending both the invita-
tional and the team national champi-
onships in April. so he decided to at-
tend the team championships.

“It's tough not going." Ginter said.
“I used to go every year, and the New
York Athletic Club is my favorite place
to stay."

"The Athletic Club was amazing."
Gilpin said. “It was very swanky. The
fight atmosphere was amazing , it
was in this big gym they have there
and the ring was in the middle with
seats all around."

Gilpin made short work of his op-
ponent. a ZOO-plus pound fighter from
the US Military Academy at West
Point. NY. dispatching him with three
eight-count knockdowns in the first
round for a technical knockout.

"He outweighed me.“ said
the 195—pound Gilpin. “But

“I decided to put Chad into the su-
per heavyweight division his freshman
year." Ginter said. “He was taller. so we
thought that would give him an advan-
tage. but he was getting into the ring
with guys 40 pounds heavier than him.
Fortunately. he made it to nationals
and ended up fighting the guy who won
it all. so it was a big learning experi-
ence for him."

Gilpin moved to the lQS-pound
weight class. where he fights guys that
are six or more inches shorter than he
is. This gives him a tremendous advan-
tage over his opponents and lends it-
self to his style. which is to attack and
keep moving around.

Gilpin and his opponents must
weigh in at 195 on the morning of the
fight. But. he said. that may not mean
they weigh 195 when the bell

“Once you get to training
every day. it‘s incredibly easy
to lose weight through

sit in a bathroom with hot

box with the mirror for a

one night. Then you weigh in
and drink juice all day to get
it all back."

"It‘s not a very good
idea." (iinter said. "Every-
body's going to skip a meal
and get a little dehydrated be-
fore they weigh in. it's in
evitable. and two to three pounds in
one practice isn't a big deal. But Chad
never has to worry about it. because

EKU will not discipline
former UK police chief

By Dariush Shafa

Former Police Chief Fred
H. Otto III will not face disci-
plinary action from Eastern
Kentucky University
for having a UK em-
ployee help with his
courseWork, one of
Otto's professors said

Michael Schu~
mann. an associate
professor of loss pre-
vention and safety.
said the matter had
been resolved satis-
factorily from EKU's
point of view.

“We have investigated the
matter. we have met with
(former) chief Otto and we
are satisfied with his expla-
nation in the matter." he

Schumann said the rea-
soning was based on Otto‘s
written work and participa-
tion in class.

“I feel very strongly that
his written work mirrored


the way he spoke and the ar-
guments he made in class,"
he said. “It corresponded to
his background. We’re satis-
fied that this is his work."
The UK Police employee
who helped Otto,

Nathan Brown, de-

clined to comment.

Maj. Joe Monroe,
one of the police ad-
ministrators who is
running day-to-day
operations since

Otto’s absence, said

the police want to
move on.

“We just want to
bury it behind us and go on
with the future of the depart-
ment." Monroe said.

Ken Clevidence. director
of public safety and vice
president for auxiliary and
campus services, has stepped
in to fill the vacuum lefi by
Otto's departure and said
that he does not feel that the
change in leadership will af-
fect students’ safety.



UK’s Amnesty group
celebrates with march

By Shannon Mason

UK's Amnesty Interna-
tional chapter. along with
other campus and local or-
ganizations. is hosting a Hu-
man Rights Day celebration

The event will begin at
6:30 pm. at the Patterson Of-
fice Tower courtyard with a
candlelit procession in re-
membrance of the ethnic
cleansing in Darfur. Sudan.

“We want especially to
draw attention to the situa-
tion in Darfur. Sudan. the vi-
olence of which has caused
16 million Sudanese to flee
to neighboring Chad." said
Jessi Vowels. the local
Amnesty chapter‘s coordina-

The processional will
lead to the main event at 7
pm. in room 359 of the Stu-
dent Center

“This event is important
(because) it‘s a way to get
the word out about what
Amnesty does. as well as
help people with similar in-
terests namely human
rights network in a com-
fortable meet and greet set‘
ting." said Evan Jones. an
anthropology senior.

Human Rights Day is an
annual celebration of the
signing of the United Na—
tion‘s Universal Declaration

of Human Rights and is na-
tionally acknowledged on
Dec. 10.

Vowels said they chose to
have the event on Thursday
instead of Friday because
they wanted to be sure that
everyone could help defend
human rights and see their
families before finals.

“It’s an opportunity to
unite people who have com-
mon goals and who want to
make positive footprints in
the world." said Maggie
Messerschmidt. an anthro-
pology senior and co—presi-
dent of Green Thumb Envi-
ronmental Club, which is
also involved with the event.

Other organizations in-
volved include Leftist Stu-
dent Union. Lambda. Laven-
der. Kentuckians for the
Commonwealth and the
Kentucky Coalition for
Peace and Justice.

“Celebrating the (decla‘
ration of human rights) is
the heart of what Amnesty
stands for." said Rachel

“And there is no better
way to celebrate it than by

Smith’s halftime message motivates Cats to blowout Win

By, Benrltoiberts

A real long walk.

That's how UK point
guard Patrick Sparks de-
scribed last night‘s trip from
the Rupp Arena floor to the
halftime locker room.

Holding on to a six-point
lead over the visiting More-
head State Eagles. Sparks
and his teammates knew
what Tubby Smith would
say once they left the court.

“He was mad that's
the understatement of the
year." junior forward Kelen-
na Azubuike said. “He got
on us good and rightly so."

UK responded to Smith‘s
halftime talk by scoring the
first 20 points of the second
half. and held the Eagles
without a field goal for the
first 8:53 of the period.

The (‘ats coasted the rest
of the way to defeat More—
head State 7140 last night at
Rupp Arena.

“It was pretty intense."
Sparks said of the halftime
talk. “We didn't come out
and play the way we wanted
to and we knew what we
were going to get. We went

in there and took it and
catne back out and respond—
ed. Coach got us to play
there in the second half."

Morehead State head
coach. and former Wildcat
point guard. Kyle Macy said
the Smith should have never
had to get on his players.

“They've got to take care
of business from start to
end.“ Macy said. “Coach
Smith shouldn't have to
come in at halftime and
chew them out the way he
did. They have to buy in to
what (‘oach Smith is trying
to teach them.

“They have to buy in top
to bottom and pound teams
like us."

Held to two points in the
first half. Azubuike added 19
points after halftime to lead
four Cats who scored in dou»
ble figures.

was a direct result of

like a chain reaction. he gets
on us and we get on them “

The (Tats jumped out to a
24-8 lead midway through
the first half. but turnovers
and missed shots led to a 13-

“Your legs turn to jelly."
Gilpin said. “That hurts me
more than them usually be-
cause my style makes me use
my legs more."

He prefers to keep the
weight off through the week
before his fight. because he
won't have to crash diet be-
fore the bout. This prefer-
ence. along with the nature
of the sport itself, has helped
in every facet of his life.

“It instills discipline."
Gilpin said. “You can't lie to
yourself like in school. going
‘Aw, man. I studied for that
test!’ when you got a bad
grade and you know you did-
n‘t study. In boxing. everyone
in the arena will know that
you didn't work as hard. and
you’ll know because you'll
get beat up."

Getting beaten up and
taking punches is something
that deters many potential
boxers from the sport. But

Gilpin can go into each tight

hardest he will ever be hit.
He has faced 300-pound
boxers and 280pound boxers.
