Lawnmower Man" or the works
of science fiction novelist Wil-

term cyberspace.

Education meets today for a highly
anticipated discussion on tuition in-
creases for the state’s eight publicly
funded universities.

Expected to recommend an 11.2
percent tuition increase for in-state
undergraduates. the council's fi-
nance committee will finalize de-
tails of the proposal today.

The increase would raise under-
graduate tuition frorn $980 to
$1090 per semester.

meeting. where board cl'nirman and

UK Student Government Associa-
tion president Lance Dowdy will
present the group with 8,000 signa-
tures fmm UK
students op-
posed to tuition
' increases.

The presi-
dents also will
recommend that
the CHE choose
not to increase
tuition for the
. 1994-95 aca-
DOWDY demic year.

Last week. the
eight state-suptxrted universities
held rallies to protest future tuition

More than 200 people showed up

Greeks learn
to give talks
about alcohol

By Megan Fields
Contributing Writer



Members of Delta Gamma social
sorority and Pi Kappa Alpha social
fraternity are learning to help stu-
dents make educated decisions eon-
ceming alcohol.

The groups hope to identify
members who will talk to others in
the greek community. as well as to
campus organizations and area high
schools, about refraining from be-
havior that may lead to dangerous

They attended a seminar Satur—
day in which they were told to
stress responsible behavior and
making the right choices as the key
to avoid senseless accidents.

At the heart of the seminar was a
video detailing a drinking and driv-
ing accident that happened in 1988.
killing one UK student and critical-
ly injuring another.

Brad Shipman‘s decision to drive
drunk resulted in the death of pas-
senger Lisa Whalen and gave back-
seat rider Michael Swerczek severe
head injuries.

Shipman and Whalen belonged
to Pi Kappa Alpha and Delta Gam-
ma. respectively.

Julie Nichols. a biology and po-
litical science sophomore. and Greg
Streif. an undeclared sophomore.
were student coordinators for the

They quickly smted that the pur-
pose of the screening was not to
point fingers or to show blame but
to prove the disastrous results of
making bad choices.

“We want to show that this hap-
pened because they all made wrong
decisions. not just Brad." Nichols

Though he‘s not sure when the
groups will be ready to give presen-
tations. Streif said he hopes those
who hear the presentation will be-
come more aware of the conse-
quences of driving drunk and will
realize they are responsible for
their actions.

No tears for dry Wildcat offense

Player hostilities after game
a positive sign, C urry says


By Brian Bennett
Senior Staff Writer


NASHVILLE, Tenn. — UK's 20-
7 loss to Vanderbilt last year could
have been termed Big Blue Sad-
ness. Fans booed and players hung
their heads. Pookie Jones even

But after Saturday‘s 12—7 debacle,
there was more seething than sor-
row in the locker room.

“There was a lot of hostility after-
wards," linebacker Many Moore

No one offered much more de-
scription than that of the scene after
the game.

Coach Bill Curry wouldn‘t pro-
vide details, calling it “family busi-
ness," but said he actually liked
what he saw.

To Curry, venom is a sign of
strength, even if you’ve just been

“I would have hated like a son of
a gun to see people hang their
heads," Curry said during yester-
day‘s media teleconference. “(But)
the players did not come in with
their heads down. They came in an-
gry and frustrated by a whole lot of
things that occurred."

Curry insisted that the matter was
not a case of players mad at one an-
other. Rather, they were all mad at

“It was not an offense/defense sit-

uation," Curry said. “It was an an-
ger/frustration situation. It was a
very positive thing. I’ve never been
on a good team where that didn't

The anger arose because the Cats
were so sure they would beat the
Commodores (3-5), who hadn’t
won a game in the Southeastern
Conference all year, so sure that
they would snap their two-game
losing streak to Vandy and wrap up
a Peach Bowl invitation to boot.

Maybe too sure.

“Too much had been said all
week about bowl games," Moore
said. “We were looking forward to
what was going to happen, making
our plans for Christmas. I kind of
saw it coming."

“I don‘t know how to explain it,"
offensive lineman Mark Askin said.
“We knew we were going to beat
them. It just sucks."

Not only did the Cats’ confi-
dence work against them, it worked
for the Commodores.

“The way they were talking all
week, this is so sweet," Vandy line-
backer Rico Francis said. “We
mined their season. Now they're
going to be sitting at home with me
at Christmas time.”

Not necessarily.

At 5-4 and 4-3 in the SEC, UK is
still very much in the postseason
picture. Five SEC teams will be se-
lected for bowls. .

The Cats currently are founh in




the league among teams that are eli-
gible for postseason. And they
should be heavily favored to beat 2-
7 East Carolina Saturday, giving
them the needed six wins to qualify
for a bowl berth.

But nothing’s guaranteed. Moore

“if we don’t start playing better,
we'll be sitting on our asses at home
on the toilet bowl," he said.

One thing that will not stop them
though, the players said, is the sting
from Vandy loss.

“It huns, but we can’t let this get
us down," Jones said. “There are
not going to be any tears coming
from my eyes this year.“


Being a UK buck linebacker this
season has been almost as hazard-
ous as being a Spinal Tap drummer.
Steve Berry and Dome Key both
went down Saturday, after Darryl
Conn and David Snardon were in-
jured against Georgia on Oct 23.

Matt Neuss, who would have
been used to back up in emergency,
also went down against Georgia.

“It‘s eerie," Curry said. “I’ve nev-
er seen anything like it in my ca-

Key sprained his ankle and is
doubtful for Saturday‘s game. Berry
bmised his knee and may play.
Snardon, who sprained a knee liga-
ment, also might return. Conn and
Neuss are out for the year.

If none are ready to go on Satur-
day, Curry said he’ll move someone
from the secondary to linebacker,
probably 6—foot-2, 205 pound cor-
nerback Steven Hall.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Before Saturday's 12-7 loss
to Vanderbilt, the UK football team had surpassed
most expectations for the season. Bowl talk was

The only game these Wildcats were going to lose
was against Tennessee, and with a great effon, they
had a shot at the Volunteers. UK was cenain to dispose
of weak Vanderbilt and East Carolina squads, right?

Surely even the hex Vanderbilt had on the Cats the
past two years would be null and void on this day.

“Unfonunately for us it was a typical Kentucky—
Vandy game," UK coach Bill Curry said after the loss.
“It's very difficult to understand.“

Easily understandable was UK‘s lack of success in
moving the ball. The Wildcat offense was as frigid as
the 39-degree air at Vanderbilt Stadium.

“Their offense is very similar to ours. so it's easier to
prepare," Vanderbilt linebacker Rico Francis said.

“Cutbacks were full of black jerseys." UK tailback
Moe Williams said. “It was very evident what we
didn‘t do.”

Most UK players admitted the team played poorly.
Unless things change next week, linebacker Marty
Moore said, UK may be headed in a familiar direction.

“We can just piss up a rope and become the same old
Kentucky team,” he said.

Some excuses for the loss could be made, but
players and coaches would take no pan in placing
blame. One pan of UK's performance that left some-
thing to be desired was the kicking game. Juha Leonoff
missed both field goals he tried (3] and 38 yards).

“We've worked very hard on (the kicking game), but
that doesn‘t get you any points," Curry said.

“We were inside their 50-yard line and we just
couldn't come away with any points," Moore said.

The kicking game definitely contributed to the end
result, but there were other factors. Vanderbilt Stadium

artificial turf since 1985 and 0—8 under Curry. which is
puzzling because the Cats practice on artificial turf in
the Nutter Fieldhouse.

“We‘ve got a real good facility.“ Curry said. “We
just spent $8.5 million so there’s no reason for it. I
thought we'd have that taken care of by now.“

From the player’s point of view, the playing field has
no effect on performances.

“I’ll play on concrete." Moore said. “It might mm a
little more, but it doesn‘t matter. Turf doesn’t effect
how you play."

Perhaps Vanderbilt was more pumped up for this
game, quite possibly the last Southeastern Conference
contest the Commodores would have a chance to win.
Games at Tennessee and Florida loom on Vandy‘s

“They had a chance to knock off a damn good team,"
UK center Wes Jackson said.

“We were their bowl game,“ L‘K quarterback Pookie
Jones said.

The ‘Dores won their bowl game and at the same
time put UK‘s chances of going to one in jeopardy.

“Vandy wasn’t creeping up on us," Jackson said.
“We just didn't rise to the occasion today. This doesn’t
ruin our season. We just didn‘t pick it up like we
should have."

Curry said overconfidence wasn‘t a factor.

“It‘s been too evident that they whooped us to be
overconfident," he said.

Moore wasn’t happy with some of the things Vander-
bilt players said and did during the game. After the
game. Commodore players began chanting “Same old
Kentucky" as they were leaving the field.

“There were a lot of things that happened out there
that was bull," Moore said. “(Split end Kenny Simon)
took a cheap shot at somebody who didn‘t have a hel-
met on. That‘s bulls---."

Volleyball Cats finding apex near season’s base

The goal of any coach is to have
his or her team peak heading into
postseason play.

UK head volleyball coach Fran
Ralston-Flory appears to have her
thh-ranked Wildcats peaking just
at the right time.

The Cats soundly defeated both
16th-ranked Georgia 15-10. 15-5,
15-13 and South Carolina 15-4, 15-
10, 15-5 this weekend at Memorial

“We finally came out and blocked
well and played a solid match
throughout." Ralston-Flory said af-
ter the victory over Georgia.

The Wildcats (25-2, 9-2 in the
SEC) stepped onto the court Friday
night determined to stop Georgia's
powerful outside hitting combina-
tion of Priscilla Pacheco and Nikki

Both had found the holes in UK‘s
blocking defense in Georgia‘s upset
victory two weeks ago, combining
for 62 kills.

But, instead of finding those same
holes, Pacheco and Nicholson found
a stone wall that held the Bulldogs‘
stars to just 13 kills and nine kills

Ralston-Flory decided against
changing the defensive scheme she
used against the Bulldogs in their
first meeting, feeling that if the
Wildcats had executed in the first
match, they would have kept the
Bulldog duo in check.

It tumed out to be the right move.
