- FOOTBALL: Making a name for himself J.W. Jordan emerges as a (MIKE CONNOLLY Sports Writer)
Before Irish fifth-year guard J.W. Jordan even stepped on campus, his name was already well-known. His father, John Jordan II, is a member of the Board of Trustees and an influential donor.
- SMC VOLLEYBALL: Close loss ends tough season (KATIE MCVOY Associate Sports Editor)

- Sept. 11: a Catholic perspective (Todd David Whitmore The Common Good)

- Stalking football players is all about love (Marlayna Soenneker Here We Go Again)
I've never been one of those girls who fixates on athletes. I'd say the closest I've ever come was a reasonably strong desire to meet Joey Getherall last year because I was so amused by the fact that he was 5-foot-8 or something and played college football.

- Old-timers clash in the `Castle' (By CHRIS SIKORSKI Scene Movie Critic)

- Psychobabble with a side of Spacey (By JOHN DONNELLY Scene Movie Critic)
"K-PAX" treads water. It has some ambition, but hits too many false notes. The film doesn't stir the viewer's emotions, it only slightly nudges them. "K-PAX" is a nice movie, but forgotten as one leaves the theater.
- Comic `World' of teenage angst (By MATT NANIA Scene Movie Editor)
