MONDAY:
In Other Ivory Towers
'StIk
In response to complaints about
its offensive nature, Virginia Tech's
athletic director has banned a chant
shouted by students and cheerlead-
ers at football games, the Collegiate
Times reported. The "Stick It In"
cheer is traditionally used when the
Virginia Tech football team is close
to scoring a touchdown.
The move is another in a series of
decisions aimed at downplayingthe
sexual content of Virginia Tech's
most infamous football cheer. Sev-
eral years back, the school's band
and cheerleaders were forbidden
from gyrating and pelvic thrusting
during the cheer.
Like the "See Ya" chant at Mich-
igan hockey games, the cheer will
likely strvive - at least in the stu-
dent section.

NO FLUX CAPACITOR?

"Andrew Hustle."
The student, whose real name
is Ryan Giacomin, was arrested on
Sept. 3 after allegedly starting a fire
at a gas station. Officials at the jail
weren't able to identity Giacomin
because he had no criminal record
and his prints were not on file. He
also gave police a false birthday
and social security number.
His real identity surfaced after
a court employee recognized his
picture on a news report about a
missing student. Giacomin is now
facing new charges of providing
false information to police.
INTELLIGENT WEB DESIGN
Baylor University shut down a
professor's personal website earlier
this week because the page support-
ed intelligent design. College offi-
cials saidthey removed the site from
the school's server because the sub-
ject matter was "immaterial" and
the professor did not follow proper
protocol for posting research.

Access to the page was blocked
before the professor could discuss
the issue with school officials. The
professor's lawyer has argued that
his client was not given the oppor-
tunity to post a disclaimer on his
website and that the University's
decision to remove the website con-
stitutes discrimination.
BANG-UP JOB
A tenured University of Nebras-
ka professor agreed to resign after
being arrested for giving explo-
sives to students in his Chemis-
try 110 class last year, the college
announced last week.
According to students, the pro-
fessor asked a student to fetch a
paper bag full of firecrackers from
his office during class, then allowed
multiple students to take the explo-
sives home with them.
The professor underwent treat-
ment for manic depression. The
charges were dropped.

CORRECTIONS
. A story on the front
page of Thursday's Daily
(The wind is up) mistakenly
quoted Ann Arbor Mayor
John Hieftje as saying that
there are 250 operational
windmills in the thumb of
Michigan. While the area
could support that number
of windmills, only 30 are
being built.

Beaner's, a coffee chain
with two locations in
Ann Arbor, has decided
to change its name to Biggby
Coffee in response to concerns
that the name is also a slur
against 'people of Hispanic
descent.

Notre Dame on Saturday
