Feeling foul

Bettina Hansen / THE STATE PRESS
DASHED DREAMS: Sun Devil head coach Herb Sendek addresses the media Sunday after the NCAA Selection Committee did not award the ASU mens basketball team with a seed in the NCAA Tournament, despite ASU finishing fifth during the regular season in the Pac-10.

It happens every year.

A team with a good resume and all the makings of an NCAA Tournament team somehow remains on the outside and is left to only look on and wonder.

This year it happened to the ASU men's basketball team.

Opinions: Concealed weapons on campus can't hurt

LIVINGOOD: As we all probably know by now, Arizona Senate Bill 1214 wants to allow civilians to carry legally concealed firearms on any college or university in the state � so long as they have a permit. The naysayers of the bill are the Democrats in the Senate. And just for clarification, while I'm not (yet) a registered Democrat, I do hang out left of the line. But despite my apparent allegiances, I think those opposing the bill have it all wrong.

The biggest argument against the bill basically is: "Remember the VT and NIU tragedies? Pretty damn awful, right? So, to protect ourselves from such things, we shouldn't pass SB 1214 because we shouldn't allow college students to have firearms on campus under any circumstances."

Opinions: Crow, ASU slapping state voters in face

SHOPE: The issue of in-state tuition for illegal immigrant students has stirred much controversy on our campus and throughout the state. It should come as no surprise that there is controversy because Arizona voters, with over 70 percent of the vote I might add, thought they had dealt with the issue once and for all.

By now, we all know the story: Arizona State University, through the ASU Foundation, has been matching illegal immigrant students with donors to assist them with their out-of-state tuition. ASU President Michael Crow recently told The Arizona Republic, "We're just trying to be helpful to them because many of them are really great students."

For 21 years now, Mesa's Commemorative Air Field has relived America's glory days and raised money to preserve its aviation history. The airfield continued its tradition Saturday night with "A Night in the '40s," a 1943-themed fundraiser modeled after WWII-era hangar dances.

Art senior finds future joy in creation - not income

Many students take income into account when deciding on a career path. But for one art senior, inspiration and passion are the main influences.

My vertical challenge
My entire life, I have been smaller than the average human being. As a child, my mother would always try and make me feel lucky to be vertically challenged by saying, "Good things come in small packages." She was obviously wrong, though, because Barbie's huge, beautiful dream house and sporty, drivable Jeep came in HUGE packages and those were the only "good things" on my list.

Review: Primer
Describing a movie as "indie" these days is usually more of a reflection on its quirkiness instead of its financing. It's easy to forget that indie flicks shouldn't just be about an ultra-cool soundtrack and characters dressed in thrift-store chic. They should aim to try new things.

Unsung wonders
Like many others, journalism senior Danielle Ciraola has no idea what a melodica is.
