- Loss to Stanford mirrors '99 season (By KATHLEEN O'BRIEN Assistant Sports Editor)
Just a typical game for the 1999 Fighting Irish football team.

- Irish win thriller over Nebraska to advance to final four Lindsey aims in winning kick, Beene makes final save (Observer Staff Report )
One hundred fifty minutes of action could not determine a winner. Five penalty kicks could not determine a winner. Only after junior captain Kelly Lindsey scored on the sixth Notre Dame penalty kick of the overtime shootout and senior goalkeeper LaKeysia Beene saved Nebraska's sixth penalty kick could the Irish make their reservations for San Jose and the women's soccer final four.
- `I Want It That Way' (Laura Rompf Copy Editor)
As I sit down to type this column, my ears can still hear a faint ringing from the weekend. No, not from a long plane ride back after Thanksgiving break, rather from over 22,000 pre-teen girls screaming at the top of their lungs. What for? None other than the top 40 sensation: the Backstreet Boys.
- Football is choreographed savagery (Khy Chapman The Daily Texan)
AUSTIN, Texas — Knowing the origins of football explains a lot about its karma. A millennium ago, when camp dogs fought over the scraps of an ancient huntsman's kill, children thrilled by the vicious spectacle would ape the wrestling beasts. As technology progressed, men fashioned balls from the stomachs of pigs and goats, stuffed them with straw or fur and developed games of toss and tumble with them. The most popular games involved fighting for control of the ball and attempting to take it to some goal. Brutality and death were encouraged.
- Irish Guard does what it can (Letter to the Editor )
Last week Mike Speaker (6-foot-3 and 220 pounds) wrote of an unfortunate incident prior to the BC game (The Observer, Nov. 23). A member of Irish Guard moved Mr. Speaker's fiancée out of the way of the band's parade to the stadium. Mr. Speaker stated that Jess was merely "standing on the curb," when the Guard, acting "like they are God's gift to the universe," shouted "move," and then shoved her.
- WRC serves whole community well (Letter to the Editor )
We knew why he visited the center. We knew why he and his cohort would not leave their names on the guest list provided for those attending the center's Open House on November 3. We anticipated an attempt by Sean Vinck to trump up questionable evidence upon which to launch yet another inquisition against the Women's Resource Center. Our assumption was proven correct upon our reading of Vinck's article entitled, "WRC Opposes the Catholic Mission" (The Observer, Nov.16).
- Gay alum calls for true human rights (Letter to the Editor )
The Catholic Church has often demonstrated the breadth of its compassion and forgivenessas represented by its individuals and its administration. The examples are many, but to describe a few: forgiveness and support of priests who sexually assault children, do not adhere to vows of celibacy, or steal money from the Church coffers (the Nov. 23, 1999, edition of the television show "Dateline" is a prime example of the last).
- Desperate for control (By LAURA ROMPF News Writer)
The stress on Notre Dame students is overwhelming. Papers, tests and commuter programs. Volunteering, sports and relationships. Having control over even one aspect of life is an accomplishment. Unfortunately, for approximately 10 percent of the student population, this "control" is causing harm and even permanent damage to their bodies.
- Desperate for control: a personal struggle (By Kathleen McCann )
I'm an intensely private person, but I am sharing my experience — not to be understood as typical — to raise awareness on campus. Eating disorders, I believe, are one of the most misunderstood, under-diagnosed, and stigmatized diseases.
- Another DMB album is just 'too much' (By GEOFFREY RAHIE Scene Music Critic)
Most bands try to put out albums once every two years or so. Some bands take even longer, trying to incorporate new sounds and styles into their music. Well consider this: Since 1997, the Dave Matthews Band has released four full-length albums. 1998's Before These Crowded Streets was an excellent studio album, while all the rest were live.
- Third time is charm for Rage's new album (By ROBERT CALLEROS Scene Music Critic)
Rage Against the Machine is back and without a doubt still "calm like a bomb." Battle of Los Angeles, just its third album in seven years, is the band's most ambitious and well-produced album yet, and it definitely leaves a deep impact.
- Beck's new album is a joyride for the senses (By JAMES SCHUYLER Scene Music Critic)
There have been few albums that can be called revolutionary in the '90s. Sometimes sounds are marketed as new even though they do nothing but rehash old trends.
