* A BILL ALLOWING ONLINE
VOTING IN SG ELECTIONS
COULD BE READY NEXT WEEK.

By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Alligator Write r
smagruder@alligator.org

Legislation to bring online voting
for student elections to UF could be
heard by the Student Senate as early
as Tuesday if it gets the support of a
committee that heard student input
on the contentious issue Wednesday
night.
The committee, led by Student
Sen. Jared Hernandez, weighed the
pros and cons of four possible sys-
tems for future Student Government
elections: paper ballot, electronic
ballot, secured-site online voting
and unsecured-site online voting.
"This is the first step," Senate
President Diane Kassim said, not-
ing that any new voting method
approved by the Senate also would
need approval from the SG executive
branch and the UF administration.
Kassim said there was a ques-
tion as to whether the SG executive
branch or administration wanted
unsecured-site online voting.


Following the presentation, a
question-and-answer session and
three rounds of open discussion,
students were given ballots to
choose which system they would
recommend to the Student Senate.
"Public opinion is a very im-
portant aspect of our decision,"
Hernandez said.
The results of the balloting, which
were not counted at Wednesday's
meeting, will be presented to
the commit-
Student tee, which
Government Hemandez said
will reach a deci-
sion and write legislation to present
at the Senate Judiciary Committee
meeting Sunday.
Judiciary Committee Chairman
Matt Chamoff said this could be the
last chance for an online-voting bill
to go into effect for the Fall semester
because it would require a read-
ing at the two. remaining Summer
Senate meetings.
The two recurring points dis-
cussed during Wednesday's forum
were increasing voter turnout and
protecting voter integrity.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Florida Blue Key historically involved in SG elections


Editor's note: This is the third story in a
series taking a closer look at the hidden
structures of Student Government.
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org

The day before the Spring 1995 Student
Government elections, fliers appeared all over
campus, complete with phony police records,
alleging that candidate Charles Grapski was a
convicted child molester.
Grapski sued the organization he be-
lieved was in control of the opposing party,
leadership honorary Florida Blue Key, for
libel.
Grapski's victory in the case, he said, was a
sign of changing times for FBK, but has done

little to change the organization's long-stand-
ing system of political involvement.
As the libel case unfolded, Circuit Court
Judge Frederick Smith ruled FBK was a politi-
cal force on campus that used the Greek sys-
tem to support candidates in SG elections.
Grapski, a graduate assistant in UF's politi-
cal science department, was awarded $150,000
in the case.
But he said UF administration took no ac-
tion against FBK, which continues to control
SG through patronage and other corrupt po-
litical practices.
"Nothing in Student Government is merit-
based," Grapski said. "Nothing."
But three-year FBK member and Student
Sen. Jared Hemandez said the organization has
since cleansed itself of political involvement.

"The system as they knew it then is dead,"
Hemandez said. "Charlie (Grapski) is living in
the past."
"It's the biggest political
organization on campus."
Roger Austin
FBK alumnus

He said since the Grapski case came to
light, FBK has extended its membership to
more non-Greeks, and its selection process is
now more merit-based. He also added that SG
is never mentioned at the chapter's meetings.
FBK President -Brian Roof affirmed
Hernandez's statements, noting that he be-
lieved changes have been made to the organi-
zation's bylaws since the lawsuit.

indicate that the war in
Iraq was planned by the"
Bush administration before
Sept. 11, 2001, will be at
the forefront of Gainesville
politics Saturday.
See story, pg. 5.


But not everyone is convinced today's FBK
is apolitical.
FBK alumnus and Delta Upsilon chapter
adviser Roger Austin said the organization
continues to work with Greek chapters to
select SG candidates for slating. Support for
candidates is still exchanged for positions in
the production of FBK-run Homecoming and
Gator Growl as well.
SG's political structure is similar to that
of the state or the nation, Austin said, liken-
ing FBK's mobilization of Greek houses and
some multicultural organizations to President
Bush's utilization of the Christian right.
"It's the biggest political organization on
campus," he said.
Austin added that although the FBK-
backed party usually is made up of Greeks,

STUDENT LIFE

Tax-free days give stores a rush


By DRU ORTEGA
Alligator Contributing Writer

Shoppers won't need to calcu-
late tax on their cell phones' cal-
culators come Saturday. The cost
of.merchandise will be just as the
price tag reads.
I Florida residents will not pay
taxes on books, school supplies;
clothes and shoes for two weeks
beginning this weekend.
Shoppers will save the 6 per-
cent Florida sales tax until July 31.
According to the Department
of Revenue's Tax Information
Publication, Florida law man-
dates no sales tax be collected on
such items with individual selling
prices of $50 or less. School sup-
plies costing less than $10 are also
tax-exempt.
The entire purchase total
may exceed the $50 or $10 caps.
However, the individual items
must cost $50 or less to be count-
ed for exemption.
Alachua County residents
will also save the .25-percent


local sales tax the county adds,
according to the Department
of Revenue's Alachua Service
Center.
Liz Hebenstreit, manager at
The Little Black Dress boutique
situated at 2441 NW 43rd St., said
she and retailers in Thornebrook
Village are preparing for the back-
to-school rush.
"It's nice to give our cus-
tomers a break."
Liz Hebenstreit
The Little Black Dress manager

She said she is expecting high
traffic the first weekend of the
tax-free holiday and hopes people
will take advantage of the oppor-
tunity to save money.
"It's nice to give our customers a
break," she said.
Becky Bumgamer, senior mar-
keting director for The Oaks Mall,
said with any event or holiday
the mall anticipates a "bump in
traffic."


She said,, previous tax-free
holidays have shown an increase
in mall traffic despite not having
traffic counters to track the exact
number of shoppers.
Past tax-exempt holidays have
been "extremely positive with ex-
cellent sales results," she said.
Mall stores also will offer cus-
tomers percentages off merchan-
dise, Bumgarner said.
"The extra 6 percent 'makes it
that much better," she said.
Items eligible for tax exemption
must fall within specific definitions
of school supplies, books and cloth-
ing.
For example, clothing is defined
as anything intended to be worn on
or about the human body not in-
cluding watches, jewelry or sport-
ing equipment, according to the
Tax Information Publication.
Students preparing for gradua-
tion can save on caps and gowns.
Internet orders may also be exempt.

what items are exempt, log on to

Gas plans conflict


By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF has no plans, to change
the security measures to pre-
vent on-campus gas theft de-
spite two recent arrests.
Physical Plant Director
David O'Brien said because
every employee who operates a
UF-owned vehicle, such as ser-
vice and grounds maintenance
personnel, is assigned a special-
ized gas key, the department
only needs to ensure employees
keep track of their keys.
Since the keys log the dis-
tance traveled by the vehicle,
if the vehicle does not reach a
certain mileage, the employee
is unable to use the key to fill
up its gas tank.
Despite that security sys-
tem, in less than two months
there have been two reports
of gas theft from the Physical


Plant station, located on the
west side of campus.
The first was UF intern
Chinma Nancy Anouro, 19, who
reportedly used a key to steal 9.2
gallons of gas on the occasion for
which she was arrested.
Then former UF employee
Darryl F. Williams, 42, allegedly
used a radio scan-
Public ner and a toolbox
Safety converted into a
tank to steal gas.
University Police also found
fuel keys from non-UF vehicles
in-Williams' truck.
UPD is investigating how,
and how much, gas was stolen,
and UPD Assistant Director
Brad Barber said recommenda-
tions will be made to improve
the current system.
"The important thing about
the system in place is to main-

tain control of the equipment,"
he said.

VOTING, from page 1

which would allow students to
vote from any computer with an
Internet connection, had a lower
cost and higher projected turnout
than paper ballots, but it received
the most attention from those wor-
ried about possible voter coercion.
Former Sen. Jason Sherry said in
his work pn four SG campaigns, he
has come to believe some fraternity
and sorority house leaders would
influence how-their members voted
if students could vote online.
"I can tell you without hesita-
tion there are people that will do
that," Sherry said.
Liberal-arts senior Thomas
Jardon said coercion and apathy,
can happen in any of the proposed-
systems, so a system should be
picked that increases voter turnout.


"In any representative democ-
racy, maximum turnout should be
its goal," Jardon said.
In February, a petition signed by
more than 1,000 students in favor of
voting on whether or not to allow
online voting at UF was denied by
the SG Supreme Court.
Dean. of Students Eugene
Zdziarski invalidated the court's
decision March 8, citing a possible
violation of Florida's open meet-
'ings laws by the court, but the issue
of online voting remained off the
Spring ballot.
Following the denial, former
Sen. Andrew Hoffman and former
Student Body Treasurer Dennis
Ngin drafted a bill that would al-
low students, to vote during an
election at any computer with an
Internet connection.
Hoffman later withdrew the bill
before it came up for a vote.


All but 12 Student Body presidents tapped as members of Florida Blue Key


F BK, from page 1


FBK sometimes splits its candidates and bills
one group as the anti-Greek party.
Despite FBK's power, he said, the average
student still has an opportunity to challenge it.
"I wish it was more well known that these


positions are open to everybody," he said,
adding that Greeks are a minority on campus.
Only 12 Student Body presidents cannot be
confirmed as FBK members since the group's
founding in 1923.
Student Senate President Diane Kassim
suggested the connection is not causal; rather,
FBK inducts students who are high achievers.
However, in the last decade every Student


Body president was elected after his or her
induction to FBK.


Student
Government


"Now," Austin said,
"president of Student Body
is a goodie for a Blue Key
member, not a way to get


into Blue Key."
Kassim did not apply for FBK membership
and said she has caught flak from her sorority


sisters for not doing so.
"I'd rather apply to become a member as
a seal to my accomplishments than use it as a
vessel to become more involved," she said.
FBK alumni include such UF dignitaries as
Ralph Turlington, Ben Hill Griffin and Stephen
C. O' Connell. They also hold positions in the
Florida Legislature, the Florida Bar and the
U.S. Congress. -

Event to push investigation


SPEAKERS WILL LEAD LOCALS
IN AN AWARENESS RALLY FOR THE'
"DOWNING STREET" MEMOS.

By DIANA MAZZELLA
Alligator Contributing Writer
The Downing Street memos, seen by some
to indicate the war in Iraq was planned by the
Bush administration before Sept. 11, 2001, will
come to the fore of Gainesville politics Saturday.
Speakers, musicians and presentations
brought together by local organizations will
take the stage at the Florida School of Massage
at 6501 SW 13th St., from 1-5 p.m., as part of
a nationwide effort to call for a governmental
inquiry, said Shelly Packer, director of opera-
tions for the county Democrats.
"We want the truth through inquiry to be
brought out," Packer said.
A re-enactment of the meeting from which
the memos originated will take place at the
* event, sponsored by Progressives of Alachua
County, the Community Coalition Against
War and Terror, Veterans for Peace and the
Alachua County Democratic Executive
Committee, among others.
Packer, Vice President for Academic Affairs
Dennis Jett and chairman of the Progressives


group Charles Grapski will speak at the event,
as well as other national and local speakers.
Packer said he will discuss media reform
in his speech, and Jett probably will focus on
the political meaning of the memos.
Grapski said he hopes the outcome
of political action on this issue is a "full
Congressional investigation into the facts and
implications of the Downing Street memo."
"We want the truth through
inquiry to be brought out."
Shelly Packer
event coordinator

Local musicians will play between speak-
ers and refreshments will be served, Packer
said. In case of rain, the event will be taken
indoors.
Gainesville is one site of the more than
100 such events to be held simultaneously
throughout the country..
The memos stem from a meeting held in
2002 between British Prime Minister Tony
Blair and other officials in the British govern-
ment and contain comments indicating war
was decided by the Bush administration, al-
though weapons of mass destruction did not
appear to have proliferated in Iraq.

Cancer secrets in sight


By CRYSTAL HENRY
Alligator Writer
chenry@alligator.org
The key to developing a technique to
prevent cancer and birth defects may lie
with a UF professor's research.
Study author Brian Harfe began the
project, which involved modifying a pro-
tein called Dicer in the embryonic stem
cells of a mouse, five years ago while
doing postdoctoral research .at, Harvard
medical school. He said scientists believe
Dicer must be present for the functioning
of microRNA, which contribute to the
formation of everything from tree limbs
to the human heart.
Mutated microRNA are believed to
cause cancer and other birth defects.
"When the modified Dicer was
exposed to a protein called Cre, it was
destroyed, therefore destroying the mi-
croRNAs," Harfe said.
When he began this experiment
at Harvard, Cre was inserted into the


limbs of a mouse embryo with modi-
fied Dicer. As the embryo grew, its limbs
developed much smaller than those of a
normal mouse, he said.
Theoretically, if this process was
performed on mutated microRNA,
thought to be cancerous, destroying the
modified Dicer with the Cre would in
turn destroy the cancerous microRNA,
which would not re-
Sp form, he said.
U eiF Harfe said this is the
Research first time researchers
have been able to see
what happens to mammals when their
tissues are deprived of microRNA.
"The next step is to find out what
exactly the microRNAs regulate," Harfe
said.
By eliminating all -the microRNA
in parts like the limbs, heart or lungs,
Harfe said he hopes to find how mi-
croRNA express certain defects which
can lead to the cell mutations that cause
cancer and birth defects.

Editorial
It's that time of the summer when eggs fry on side-
walks, and we at the Department of Darts & Laurels are
facing burns of the third degree.
But we're staying put in the kitchen.
As our student leaders stretch their arms a little bit, are
we going to see power struggles kicked up a notch or 10?
And what's going on with the shuttle? Once the no-
call, no-shows end, Discovery might dish out a fiery liftoff
to spite its critics. That is, if it can get two .inches off the
ground.
And as the Earth moves closer and closer to the Sun,
will the Alligator have a serious on-campus competitor
come back-to-school time?
Just kidding.
We're discovering lower and lower levels of banality as
we flame up for this week's edition of....



Darts & Laurels


Just when we thought the temperature couldn't rise any
higher, the hydrogen bomb finally dropped on Student
Government.
We in fact may be forced to award the largest, most ex-
pensive LAUREL ever, an extravagance that would make
even chocolate alligators blush.
LAURELS all around to the Student Senate for finally,
at long last, getting to square two in the online-voting
debate.
Maybe.
What caused us to gag on our refreshing mint juleps
was that officials brought the issue directly to the students,
letting those in attendance have a say in Senate policy.
Although the ballots were not counted at the meeting,
we strongly believe students will vote for the online sys-
tem, which has been debated in SG circles for years.
The clock's ticking, and we're watching.
Sticking to situation comedy, we'll put our hands
together to form a just-stay-away-from-the-hoedowns
LAUREL for Wayne Brady and Gator Growl for what
seems like an excellent pairing of talents.
Brady's versatility will appeal to a wide audience,
which is perfect for the diverse crowd that attends our
very own largest pep rally in the world.
So what if, to quote superstar comic writer Paul-
Mooney, Brady makes Bryant Gumbel look like Malcolm
X? He's got to be better than Bill Engvall was.
But more impressive, in terms of the Growl organiz-
ers' roles, was their ability to secure a bright star with just
$65,000, when top-shelf talent could easily cost much more
than $100,000. Heck, even Engvall got more.
Hopefully, their laudable restraint will allow them
some wiggle room to keep UF's show explosive in this, the
first year of Urban's reign.
Turning our attention to matters of pure slapstick, we
present a flying-in-the-face-of-innovation DART to the UF
administration, who have added a 2.6-percent fee to on-
line credit card payments through ISIS-and dropped VISA
for not going along with the plan.
We understand the rising costs of credit card processing
may force UF into an unpopular decision, but administra-
tors could have announced it a little earlier.
The new fee takes effect July 26. We only found out
about it a few days ago.
They'd better be careful now, because we students have
Wayne Brady, and we do not want him to have to choke a
bitch.
Just kidding.
Or are we?

State sexual-predator policy not helping


While everyone spends their time worrying about
the War on Terror and the Patriot Act, a potentially
even more disturbing outcome of the Sept. 11, 2001
attacks is being ignored: the rampant use of the government's
favorite new toy overcompensationism. -
You may not be familiar with that term probably be-
cause I just made it up but overcompensationism is fast
becoming a real danger.
This can be seen in action whenever officials introduce
ridiculously restrictive legislation to save face after the media
scolds them for failing to stop bad things from happening.
While this has been going for as long as government has
existed, the Sept. 11 attacks taught lawmakers they can get
away with just about anything if they pretend it will prevent
future tragedies.
The golden age of overcompensationism we now enjoy
was ushered in after the attacks, when the U.S. government
funneled approximately $3,000 trillion into airport security
for what experts agree is no increase in actual security.
We might not stop hijackers, but you can be damn sure
that old lady with the huge handbag is going to be X-rayed,
patted down and cavity-searched within an inch of her life.
After that opened the door, who was one of the first in line
to pull out a bazooka to deal with their gnat problem?
The leaders of our great old Sunshine State, of course.
Florida has had a "problem" with sexual-assault cases
this year problem meaning more cases than usual have
involved attractive white children and thus have been the
subject of massive media attention.
In response, the state has been tightening sexual-predator
security to make sure those predators don't make the state
look bad on TV.
I didn't think there was any way you could make the fight
to decrease sexual assaults a bad thing, but Florida much
like life, as we learned in "Jurassic Park" finds a way.
Twice this year, sex offenders were arrested for violating
parole. Their crime: owning sort-of-pornographic materials.


SOne of these men ,was jailed
because he had copies of Maxim, a
men's magazine which often features
women in swimsuits and sometimes
S gasp their underwear.
Another was caught after a sex
Matt SancheZ manual was found next to his bed.
SPure Foppery He shared this bed and, presum-
msanchez@alligator.org ably, the manual with his wife.
I can see why the government felt
they had to step in: We can't let sex of-
fenders fantasize about movie starlets or have good sex with
their wives when they could be dreaming up better ways to
find mentally disabled and underage victims to assault.
Lord forbid we let predators have a normal sex life.
But this is a monumentally stupid idea even setting aside
the blatant overcompensationism.
Any psychiatrist will tell you the worst way to deal with a
problem is to bottle it up inside and ignore it.
That rule is all too true for rational people; now imagine
what happens when you take someone who has proven
unable to resist his darkest impulses and tell him he isn't al-
lowed to think about sex anymore.
Better yet, tell him reading a guide to acrobatic sexual
positions is just as illegal for him as hitting the street in the
white van and trolling for kindergartners.
Just don't be surprised if he says, "Heck, if I'm going to
go to jail for reading the swimsuit issue, I might as well make
it worth my while," and give us a whole new crop of high-
pr6file assault cases to worry about.
But it'll look good on TV. I'm sure they'll get a close-up of a
clean-cut, white, upper-middle-class housewife saying, "Boy,
the government sure is doing a lot to keep my kids safe."
In a time when overreaction is considered an acceptable
activity, that seems to be all that matters.

MTV responsible for destroying a generation of viewers


UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.
The saying used to be "I want my MTV."
But for the last few years, all I can say
is I hate my MTV.
I wish my friend Holden Caulfield was
here. He would tell you how phony, super-
ficial and just plain crappy that network has
become. No music and no real substance.
I couldn't have come up with most of the
shows that are broadcast if you locked me in
a room and told me to come up with the most
asinine and pointless ideas ever.
What has happened to our generation?
What has happened to our so-called unique
b and individualistic culture? Collectively we've
bought into the garbage MTV has shoved
down our throats since its inception in 1981.
For example, everybody on MTV looks
exactly the same. The guy has a mop haircut,
5 o'clock shadow, a shirt with an astonish-
ingly clever saying like "Gettin' Lucky in
Kentucky," ripped abs (because you're dis-
gusting if you're not ripped), khaki cargo
shorts and those damned thong sandals. The
girl: some variation of a trucker hat, oversized
and obnoxious designer sunglasses, a fake tan
and a classy shirt that says "Sexy."
MTV puts out the cookie cutter image of


what is supposed to be popular. But they've
tried to make us believe we're unique and one
of a kind even though a majority of us have the
same taste for style, interests and opinions.
Thanks to MTV we've also garnered this
persona that we're entitled to privileges not
because we've earned them, but because we
exist. Take the drinking age for example.
Many argue it should be lowered because
European countries have little, or no restric-
tions on drinking. You know why they don't
have to wait until they're 21? Because when
most of them are 18 they don't get so intoxi-
cated they pass out in front of -College Pizza
every weekend. The arrogance and lack of
respect students have for everything is abso-
lutely nauseating.
MTV tells us on one hand that looks aren't
important and our personalities make up who
we are. On the other hand it produces shows
like "I Want a Famous Face" and displays ads
from Revlon with airbrushed models promot-
ing the MTV Music Awards.
But on every "reality dating" show, person-
ality supposedly is the most important thing
in relationships. If so, why can't a guy just
come out and say he likes a girl? Well, that's
too forward. I guess that means honesty isn't


Mike Springer what people look for in
U-Wire each other. Guys have
to play "hard to get" so
not to get tagged as a
tool while girls are taught instinctively to play
the same game. I'm surprised anybody ever
finds a boyfriend or girlfriend to begin with.
Does anyone believe money buys happi-
ness? You would if you watched shows like
"My Super Sweet 16" or "Laguna Beach." Gag
me with a spoon. I really wish my worst prob-
lem was figuring out which club to go to on a
Tuesday night.
We revere U2 and their lead man Bono as
a demigod for his absolutely brilliant analy-
sis on global poverty: give more money.
Most people look past the fact or don't even
realize his concert tickets average over $100
a show and that he endorses the ever-grow-
ing elitist image that is the iPod.
Take his'endorsement of John Kerry last
presidential election, too. I don't care that
he endorsed Kerry, but instead the fact that
he's Irish and garners more respect from
18- to 25-year-olds in the American political
system because of his vocals on "Vertigo"
than countless congressmen and historical
figures here at home.


And don't even get me started about
MTV's renowned shows "Road Rules" and
"The Real World." If I have to watch these
"reality" shows to get a. sense of what real-
ity is like, that means I've been out of touch
with reality a long time ago.
News flash: The real world MTV says
will be approaching in the upcoming years
is phony. You are already in the real world.
Do you really think all of a sudden after
graduating college things are going to be
much different? Only then you have to- as-
sume responsibility? I don't think so. We
can't have it both ways.
We can't say we're too young for certain
things but mature enough to be considered as
wise as older adults. We can't say we need to
be taken more seriously while continuing to
use the excuse that we're just college students.
MTV has hijacked who we are right now
and intuitively who we'll be for the rest of
our lives unless we realize what they've
been broadcasting over the years has been
crap. Plus the ironic and perverse lack of
music in general for "Music Television."
I want my life back.

brick streets lead to the-newest club in town.
It is a place where, in daytime, 75-year-old
restaurants thrive, and at night, the streets
crowd with mobs of buzz-chasing university
youth. Seven nights a week, on top of a whole
city full of history, the ultra-competitive club
scene battles itself with the hottest music and
the newest themes.
Still, north of new hot-spot clubs like Rue
Bar and The Library, on the outer cusp of this
throbbing nightlife bonanza lies the Atlantic,


one quaint little joint with an appreciative eye
for the retro.
And while some clubs around town might
make the short hop back in time for '80s night,
Wednesday night marked
the third installment of
the Atlantic's weekly Twist
and Shout event, where
rocking tunes take dancers
and drinkers back almost
twice as far so bands
like the Jackson Five can teach the "ABC"s of
popular music.
On July 13, the second Twist and Shout
night was held at the Atlantic; a late crowd


poured in just after 11 p.m. and peaked at
more than 70. The night promised musical
styles like Motown, Northern soul, '60s dance,
New Orleans furik, French pop, garage rock
and indie pop.
Brett The event, a pet proj-
Kelman ect of Atlantic DJ William
Don't Hate the Playa Lamson, is designed sim-
theavenue@alligator.org ply "to provide something
different" and seems to be
catching on.
Lamson says he wants to play an interesting
mix of older music to keep the crowds dancing
and the latter to avoid typecasting to already
hackneyed classics. Ideally, Lamson hopes to


eventually enact dressed-up-for-drink specials
and doubles "dance-off" competitions a la
Pulp Fiction's Jack Rabbit Slims scene.
"I just want to start the kind of place where
you leave your hang-ups at the door," he said,
obviously excited about the growth of his
idea.
Not everyone was as thrilled with the mu-
sic selection as Lamson. UF psychology major
Eval Smith tacked down the consensus with a
cheesy pun.
"It had a lot of potential, but it'got ship
wrecked out on the Atlantic," Smith said.
With Twist and Shout here to stay, Lamson
hopes to improve it every week.

FASHION A GO-GO

Wine spills, bad tips create questions of lifestyle


In life, sometimes you meet
someone who turns you on,'
who seems to have so many
wonderful qualities, then the
slightest personality glitch like
they're a bad tipper and you're
screwed.
The same thing happens in
fashion; when you finally find that
one terrific garment, you wear it,
and then you spill red wine on it.
How do you fix these sticky
situations?
Last week I ended my column
with the statement, "After all, life
is style too."
Well, what about lifestyle? Is
it the same style as the way we
dress?
Perhaps not, but I believe I've
found a number of ways that prob-
lems in life also occur in fashion.
Therefore, your life's style
evolves from how you handle the
mishaps.
Let's say you've hung out a few
times with a really cool person
and you suspect this quasi-con-
nection could blow into romantic
fireworks.
Then; tonight's the night an
admission of your thoughts in


hopes they'll be reciprocated. With
dinner plans looming, you need to
look hot.
After drudging through your
closet, you find it the shirt
that sets you off perfectly, flat-
tering your complexion, figure,
muscle tone and costs way
more than you care to confess.
As the evening reaches full swing
it couldn't be going better. You've
just popped a very expensive bot-
tle of '97 Napa cabernet. Before
taking the first sip, you must
toast to a great night. Reaching
in slow motion, you knock over
your crystal glass, you clumsy
ass.
"Kaka!" Red wine is soaking
your $80 shirt!
OK, breathe deep. You're a class
act and this is a special night; your
partner suggests going home to
change, but you decline arid say
you'll do it later after all, shit
happens.
The night resumes.
As you're about to leave the
restaurant, your partner gra-
ciously pays the check and gets
up for a moment to go to the
restroom.


Before you divulge your emo-
tional diarrhea, there before you is
the grand inquisition, the test, the
potential deal-breaker. All it would
take is just a peek at the bill to find
out how much gratuity was left to
your server.
"Oh no! Damnit!"
You're dating a bad tipper.
Your mind
is swirling with
questions. Do i
you hide under
the table, do
you bolt? Do
you address the
situation? If so,
how? Not to mention you also
have to deal with the red wine
stain; how do you manage both
with finesse?
Well, -my friend, you've got
yourself quite a double whammy.
The amount of gratuity left is a
reflection of a person's character. A
generous and thoughtful person
,is inclined to leave at least 15-20
percent, while those who are self-
ish and stingy seem to leave much
less. However, be willing to grant
the benefit of the doubt to those
who just may not know any better


and castigate those who pretend
not to know.
How do you attempt to rectify
your partner's behavior? This is
very shaky ground because you
could really offend someone by
calling them out.
Screw it; it's time to grow up.
.So, to potentially buffer the blow,
there must
Christine be alcohol in-
Steffens volved.
en ,If. you and
Fashion a Go-Go f
theavenue@alligator.org your partner
don't drink,
well my friends,
you're on your
own. Improvise.
The idea is to go to a bar or a
restaurant, someplace where a bill
will be presented.
You have two alternatives:
Plan A: When the bill arrives
you graciously pay; a credit or
debit card works best so you can
write the tip real big without any-
body mistaking the amount.
Make sure you leave the check
wide open for all prying eyes, even
if you have to pick it up, look at
it again closely, then place it back
down between the two of you. You


then say, "Servers rely on their tips
and hope for 20 percent."
Plan B: If they insist on pay-
ing, offer to contribute to the tip
acknowledging their generosity,
then make a statement similar to

'Wedding Crashers' celebrates risky adult comedy


I'd like to propose a toast. Here's to awe-
some cheap laughs, classic one-liners
and perfect comedic timing by Vince
Vaughn.
Cheers! It's about time.
If you haven't ventured out for a night at
the movies since "Old School," this movie is
the one to go to.
"Wedding Crashers" is a hilarious and
original breath of fresh air in this humid,
stifling summer of remakes.
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson star as
best buds who attempt to get women in the
sack by crashing weddings. The two create
intricate backstories the adopted cousin
of so-and-so, Uncle Ned's kid, etc. and
then woo unsuspecting wedding hotties


wrapped up in the marital bliss. Things are
going great, and the guys are getting laid
faster than you can scream "Shout," until
Owen Wilson falls for a particular brides-
maid played by "The
Notebook" star Rachel
McAdams.
Think of "Wedding
Crashers" as a twist
between "There's '. "
Something About Mary"
and "Old School." When
you combine raunchy comedy with Wilson
and Vaughn's great chemistry, you really
can't go wrong. The two actors feed off
each other, and most of the funniest mo-
ments occur between the two guys just


mouthing off.
The most surprising part of the movie
was how extremely funny Isla Fisher was as
the red-headed bridesmaid.
For some movies the
best lines and the only
Melissa laughs are used in the
Filipkowski previews, but this is not
The Reel Life the case in "Wedding
theavenue@aligator.org Crashers." The pairing of
Fisher and Vaughn made
the movie for me, and I
hope to see her in other comedic roles in
the future.
"Wedding Crashers" lives up to its R
rating with lots of dirty humor, cursing
and everyone's favorite boobs. Vaughn


has stated in various interviews that he
purposely wanted this movie to be raun-
chy since many other movies took the safe,
money-making route of PG-13 films.
Everyone's favorite medicine woman
Jane Seymour takes a huge, first step in
"Wedding Crashers" with her first topless
scene ever. Seymour plays a middle-aged,
sexually-deprived wife of equally funny
Christopher Walken. Walker isn't spitting
off lines about cowbell, as he did in the clas-
sic "Saturday Night Live". skit that catapult-
ed him to the status of hilarious; his part is a
supporting role and he filled it perfectly.
Overall, "Wedding Crashers" is a great
movie that will have you genuinely laugh-
ing from beginning to end I'll drink to it.

PLAYLIST

Dasi fools around


Artists evolve, collaborate


4 Local trio Dasi's
debut album "Escape
from Draconia" builds
on songs the band
performs live, using
layers of sound to cre-
ate a dense musical expression with a
footing in psychedelic pop and arms
that reach to everything from Native
American drumming, folk, punk and
Eno-esque ambient.
Sometimes, this will occur all in one
song, leaving the listener dumbfound-
ed but strangely fulfilled. Despite the
limited range that comes from being
a three-piece band, Dasi always at-
tempts to beef up their songs.
When they play live, they fre-
quently change instrument configu-
rations, giving audience members a
chance to play along with them using
a plethora of percussion instruments.
The recording process finally al-
lows them to simply overdub what-
ever instrument is required, and boy
do they require a lot: They have all the
bells and whistles, from an electronic
harmonica to a recorder, to, yes, actual
bells and whistles.
All of this would be just lace
on a concrete pillow if not for
the solid songwriting from lead
singer/guitarist/kitchen-sink player
Taraka Larson. Her lyrics are amaz-
ingly diverse, from her expression
of a deteriorating relationship in
"Conversation Emaciation" to the


surreal "Inspoken/Outspoken."
Although her vocal range is limited,
she attacks each word with great vig-
or, yelping, squeaking and talking to
hide her limitations.
Stand-out tracks include
"Lionheart & Laughter," a tale of a
siren-type creature that seduces men
that contains a wildly catchy melody.
"Metro Buelo Dodo" shows Dasi at
their sonic best, speeding and slow-
ing down the pace from punk to a
slow simmer of a synthesizer. Beware
though; some listeners may grow
impatient.Dasi offers little resembling
a chorus, and their songs that lack a
strong melodic hook, like "For Max,"
drag. Despite its many strong points,
this compact disc is not for someone
expecting verse-chorus-verse-chorus-
bridge-chorus.
Beyond merely the songs, the
overriding feeling coming-from Dasi's
CD and this is true of them in per-
son is youthful exuberance for their
music.
Other bands trying to create a
collection of songs with such a hodge-
podge of influences would come off
as pretentious. With "Escape from
Draconia," the danger of this is swept
away by the wink and grin from a
band simply having fun, a rarity in
music today.
BRIAN OFFENTHER


n the midst of my habitual channel surfing
the other night, I caught part of the Fuse
Channel's show "The F-List, Resurrected
Rockers."
The show's premise follows groups formed
from a band breaking up or collaborations be-
tween bands.
While I was watching this countdown, I
couldn't help but think of this trend in music
and all the groups I knew of that would fit on the
countdown. I felt an obligation to breakdown
some of the top groups making music today and
explain where they came from.
This trend is everywhere.
Just look at some of the
members in local bands.
Roger Cohen, the drummer
for the ska band The Duppies,
can also be found on stage
drumming for the punk band
Pissing on Susie. The Duppies
can also be connected to Team Mascot through
Justin Tzuanos, playing the guitar for both.
This trend continues in the music scene on
an astronomical scale. Audioslave is a great
example. Although Rage Against the Machine
broke up 'in 2000, the band wasn't finished mak-
ing music. All the members, sans lead singer
Zach de la Rocha, got together with former
Soundgarden lead singer Chris Cornell to form
Audioslave in 2002.
A lesser-known group formed from a break-
up is Straylight Run, with Shaun Cooper and
John Nolan, formerly of Taking Back Sunday.


THE GUIDE

BMB0IWBB!,! MI!


Nolan said in an interview with MTV that they
just had different ideas than the rest of Taking
Back Sunday.
Then there are the supergroups Mars Volta
and Sparta. These two came to be after At The
Drive In fell into a permanent hiatus in 2001.
The members split to form two different bands.
Cedric Bixler and Omar Rodriguez formed
Mars Volta and Tony Hajjar, Jim Ward and Paul
Hinojos formed Sparta. Recently, -Hinojos left
Sparta and joined Mars Volta.
A companion to this trend involves artists
having side projects. Although their current
bands are still making al-
bums, artists are involved
Amanda with other bands as well.
Seyfang The consensus is it gives art-
Playlist ists the opportunity to stay
theavenue@alligator.org creative.
The ones that stand out
most are the side projects
that Blink 182's Tom Delonge and Travis Barker
are involved with. Both Barker and Delonge
are in Boxcar Racer and Barker is also in The
Transplants. Also in The Transplants is Tim
Armstrong, band member of Rancid. All four
bands are currently together and making awe-
some music.
Two of my .favorite bands now are also to-
gether. Death Cab for Cutie's singer Ben Gibbard
teamed up with Jimmy Tamborello of Dntel to
form The Postal Service.
Trends come and go like Paris Hilton's friend-
ships, but this is one trend I hope stays around.

AUDIOLOGY L

Attempting instant stardom, summer albums fizzle


Audiology: This week's audiol-
ogy focuses on summer's new
sounds you should think twice
about before picking up.

E. Wikkid Lil' Grrrls
3 .A Esthero
A. Reprise Records

'f For someone
who boldly de-
clares "I'm so sick and tired of
the shit on the radio" on the first
track of her album, Esthero easily
could be mistaken for everything
else on the radio. Blending jazz,
hip-hop and funk, the soulful
Esthero has a great voice (think
Pink) and works with some
industry heavyweights, includ-
ing Andre 3000,. who wrote the


track "Junglebook" on the album,
and Sean Lennon, the late John
Lennon's son.
But tracks like "My Torture"
are torturous to listen to. The song
itself is bland, drags on and never
seems to get to the point. Esthero
does better on her more up-beat
efforts the most noteworthy
being the title track. The CD jacket
cheekily warns "May cause ass to
shake," and it's exactly the kind
of song you'd want to hear if you
were out shaking it downtown.
The jazz clarinet heard promi-
nently in the background offers a
delightful twist that is uncommon
in pop music. But it's nothing
Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas
couldn't pull off.


Move Along
The All-American
Rejects
S,...-.-..Fr-,. Interscope Records

The All-American
Rejects are living up to their name
with their second album. The curse
of the sophomore release is evident
in this power-pop rock group,
which failed to show any growth
from their self-titled debut.
Simplistic drum beats and gui-
tar riffs are the downfalls of this
CD, but at least they have hand-
claps. The track "Move Along" is
meant to inspire the listener, but
the melody is ordinary and thd
lyrics are the average power-pop
kind: "And even when your hope is
gone, move along, move along, just


to make it through."
But there is a sliver of hope with
tracks such as "Stab My Back,"
which is worthy of some head-bob-
bing. Unfortunately, that memory
soon fades when you hear "It Ends
Tonight," the deep lament of vocal-
ist Tyson Ritter. Poor kid. Better
luck next time.

Sleepwalker
JamisonParker
Interscope Records

Janmison Parker's
first full-length release is a far cry
from being "contrived with the kind
of attention to detail that would
make a Swiss watchmaker jealous,"
as their press release boasts. But
that's not to say the band doesn't


show some promise.
Lead vocalist Jamison Covington
is able to convey emotion in his
voice that sounds genuine, but he
genuinely reminds you of a 13-year-
old, snot-nosed Chris Carrabba a
little immature, with a lot of grow-
ing (and growing up) to do.
"Best Mistake" sounds like some-
thing that would come from The All-
American Rejects' new release.
A show of potential is also
marked in Covington's lyrics,
such as "If this is love then kill me
now and save me from my life,"
taken from the album's first track,
"Alcohol and Bandages."
"Sleepwalker" isn't a nightmare,
but it's no eye-opener, either.

'Girl Play' portrays cliche of lesbian community


This is a true story, and it's
about lesbians.
Sorry boys, "Girl Play"
disappoints by sadly reinforcing
stereotypes of the dark side of
girl-on-girl action with two butch
women talking about their feelings
in deep, raspy voices.
The movie is one in which the
characters talk directly to the au-
dience. The entire 80 minutes are
narrated by two slouching, curs-
ing, flannel-and-jeans-wearing
women. The film has almost no
creativity.
Since there is practically no
current competition on the lesbian
date-movie market, "Girl Play"
could have been inventive and


insightful. But its reliance on cli-
ch6s ruined the movie by making
it seem superficial.
The characters are opposites

Greenspan, playing herself, is story of the two actresses Robin


Greenspan and Lacia Harmon.
The two lesbian actresses in Los
Angeles actually fell in love dur-
ing a play that cast them as lovers.
Imagine that.
To be fair, there is a break in
their talking with a little action
- a fully nude sex scene featur-
ing reasonably attractive young
women. If you can stand the ter-
rible soundtrack then it's an OK
couple of minutes' break from the
monologues.
Yes it's a true story, but one
could take some liberty at least
with the art direction or the
soundtrack.
The movie touches on the pros
and cons of being alone and the


problem of performance anxiety. It
also decries the problem of losing
the spark in relationships along
with whatever else the traditional
girl of the relationship usually
complains about doubled.
We all can understand the di-
lemma of opting to stay in a safe
relationship versus trying some-
thing new that could be better but
is definitely a risk. The film boldly
reinforces the already jaded ideal
of taking the plunge.
Too bad real life is so blah.
If you're a 12-year-old boy you
might want to see it for the boob-
touching action.
"Girl Play" can be seen at the
Hippodrome on July 22-28.

Gators to attempt Meyer's proven spread offense


Tim Casey / Alligator Staff
Although Chris Leak wasn't named to the All-SEC first team, the UF quarterback
has plenty of other concerns. Learning Urban Meyer's offense comes first.


By ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Staff Writer

It worked against UNLV and it thrashed
Brigham Young, but the main question on the
minds of Gators fans and opponents is will
Urban Meyer's offense be gelled and running
on all cylinders when the likes of a Tennessee
defense comes to town?
Meyer's spread offense is just a spring se-
mester into the development process, but the
potential that the Gators will field on that side of
:the ball could end up being among the nation's
best-if the offense works in the Southeastern
Conference.
The adjustment of playing in a new spread
offense hasn't been without its growing pains.
Just a couple days into the spring, reporters
were already clamoring for Meyer's view on the
offense and his candid response said it all.
"What you saw out there wasn't good of-
fense," he said. "If you want to see some good
offense, I have some tapes upstairs from last
year that I can show you."
One of the common concerns about the of-
fense this year centers on whether Chris Leak
can survive in such an option-based system.
However, Meyer made it clear that the Gators'
offense in 2005 will not be an exact replica of
Utah in 2004. Adjustments will be made so that
UF can succeed with the given talent at each po-
sition,'which isn't to say that Leak will shy away
from mixing it up on his feet.
"We ran the option a bit last year and I'm
using that experience to make me better," Leak
said. "We are going.to get the ball in the hands of'


our best guys and runners and the option really
allows us to do that."
Another question is whether the offense will
work against the faster and more talented de-
fenses of the SEC, but Meyer and the Gators will
be relying on discipline, speed, misdirection and
.a winning mentality.
The 2004 offense may have fielded many
of the same athletes, but the foundation of
fundamentals has slowly been installed. This
could lead to a drastic reduction in the penalty
department, a problem that plagued Ron Zook's
offense.
"We are very detailed fundamentally, and
it's hard for a guy to
be thinking what to
8,-M-Sf0 -VXS. do on the play and
Mf 1,pj f j think about what he
is supposed to be
doing fundamentally," offensive coordinator
Dan Mullen said. "That's where we've made
improvement, but the greatest improvement is
yet to come."
Not only will UF field one of the more ath-
letic and seasoned offensive lines in quite some
time, but the receivers are hands down the big-
gest strength on the team. Chad Jackson, Andre
Caldwell, Dallas Baker and Jemalle Cornelius
combine to make up the most experienced and
arguably most talented receiving core in the con-
ference, which could spell trouble for not only
opposing secondaries, but also for linebackers.
The receivers and tight end Tate Casey will
constantly be in motion before the snap or lined
up in the backfield along side Leak to keep de-

Leak snubbed from SEC team


STAFF REPORT

The coaches have voted and it's official
- UF's roster is full of talent.
Just don't forget to read the fine print.
UF placed a Southeastern Conference-high
12 players on the preseason All-SEC team, but'
in a surprising move, quarterback Chris Leak
was placed on the All-SEC second team.
The coaches voted unheralded Vanderbilt
quarterback Jay Cutler top in the conference.
While many preseason Heisman lists placed
Leak in the top 10 for the nation's most pres-
tigious individual award, the SEC coaches
went with the senior Cutler who passed for 18
touchdowns and 13 interceptions,last year with
a quarterback rating of 127.7.
Leak passed for 29 touchdowns and 12 inter-
ceptions with a 144.9 rating.
Three Gators did make the first team, in-
cluding center Mike Degory and left tackle
Randy Hand.

unaccomplished junior receiver, also earned a
spot in the first team. In the spring, much of the
accolades and praise from Coach Urban Meyer
went to.Chad Jackson, but he barely made the
list with a third-team selection.
Senior receiver Dallas Baker, the star of the
Orange and Blue Game, earned second-team
status.
The only team in the conference with three
receivers represented, UF also placed two line-
backers on the preseason team.
When Meyer arrived at UF, he pinpointed
sophomore linebacker Brandon Siler as one of
his favorite players, but junior linebacker Earl
Everett finished ahead of Siler in voting.
Everett made the second team, and Siler was
placed on the third team.
The preseason nominations don't necessar-
ily translate into postseason accolades.
Last year, the coaches voted Georgia's David
Greene to the preseason first team but at the
end of the season Auburn's Jason Campbell
earned that spot on the all-SEC top squad.

with


Bernie

Machen


This is the second half of the interview
between Alligator sports editor Andrew
Abramson and UF President Bernie
Machen discussing issues in sports.

AA: Should there be a playoff in college foot-
ball?
'BM: I think there should. I think the idea that
we wouldn't go to a play)ot because it would
mean another game _s not exactly fair. When
you look at how many teams our baseball
team played, they played close to 80 games
this year. Look at the basketball team: they
played 35 or 40 games. So, the problem is
-the bowl system and how you integrate the
bowl system with a playoff game, but it
can be done. I think it will be done because
obviously the BCS system-even the newest
integration of u--is not going to work. Sooner
or later we're going to have to come up with
a playoff system.

AA:So you think a playoff system will arrive?
BM: Ido. I'm in the definite minority now. When I
meet with other college presidents the over-
whelming majority do no[ want to entertain
the notion of a playoff system. out in mv
opinion it will come.

AA: Why don't the other presidents want a
playoff'
BM: I think logic would say it s what we ought to
do. I think I'm being logical and I don't think
they are so it's hard for me to figure it out. I
think many of them like the status quo. Tne
oend that they ve made to try to incorporate


the non-BCS schools with this one-over game
they're adding is just not going to work.

AA- The extra game didn't really change any-
thing, did it'?
BM: No. The bowls are really worried about it too
because they don t think it s going to work
either. I think sooner or later we'll have a
playoff.

AA: Do you think It should be a four-team or
eight-team playort?
BM. Wait,. I'm not an expert. I just think we could
figure out a way to have a playoff system
that works through the bowls and gets the
students back in class in early January. I just
don i think that s so difficult to accomplish.

AA: What will It take to change it?
BM: A couple more failures with the BCS sys-
tem.

AA: Getting off the playoff issue, numerous un-
derclassmen in college basketball, including
Matt Walsh and Anthony Roberson, went to
the NBA Draft and weren't selected. Now
these athletes cannot return to college ath-
letics. What are your thoughts on kids leav-
ing school early to play pro sports?
BM: If you have some certainly about what your
future is going to be, and you can be a first
round pick, just given the financial security
that goes along with that [it's understand-
ablel. So unless you're a guaranteedi first
round choice, I think you ought to stay in col-
lege. Look at David Lee. He stayed here for
four years, he did it right, he became a better


player, he graduated and he squeaked into
the first round with a guaranteed contract
with the New York Knicks. I think we ought
to look at David Lee's way to go as the way
we ought to make it work for our student
athletes.

AA: Do you think it's a larger problem that these
student-athletes are receiving advice from
all over?
BM: I don't know who's feeding these people,
but a lot of people commented that there s
no way that Walsh and Roberson were going
to go in the first round, no way. It was just
common talk, and yet they seemed to think
they had a chance at going, so they went.
What are tney going to be doing? If they re
lucky they re going to be playing in the devel-
opmental league for a pro team, and it that
doesn't work they're going to be playing in
Europe. Why wouldn't it be better to be play-
ing for the University of Florida, completing
your college degree, and then go up for the
draft next year?

AA: And Florida would nave been awfully good
next year with Walsh and Roberson...
BM: With those two guys, and with the young
players we've got. it would have been a great
place for [Walsh and Roberson 1to get better
and show their stuff.

AA: There's a mindset that if you stay lor a senior
year, your game is going to criticized.
BM: Yeah, I read that it hurts you to stay your
senior year, and I don t believe that. David
Lee's a good example of why that just isn't
true.

AA: You're surrounded by big-time college ath-
letics, so what do you think makes college
sports better than the pros, or vice versa?
BM: I don't even enjoy watching pro football or
pro basketball anymore. It s me team con-
cept that makes the difference. It's playing


together for a university with a lot of emo-
tion. The game is what it's all about, not the
individual thing. It's even more prevalent
today in women's sports. If you watch the
women's games. you see team sports at
its very best. Pro sports are too much of a
business.

AA. In Division 1-A college iootoall there are only
four African-Americans currently serving as
head coaches. Do you see diversity still being
a problem in college sports?
BM: It sure is. It s a problem in universities like
ours, anyway. Our problem is we are only go-.n
ing to hire someone wno's already a head
coach. It's not possible to be able to come
into this job in football without prior head-
coaching experience When you look at the
Division II and Division I schools that have
African-American head coaches, there are
none. We looked nard to find a pool. There
was one Hispanic coach and one African-
American coach but they just [didn't nave
the experience. So we have to do more
to develop better coaches. I think Charlie
Strong's going to be a great coach. My great-
est fear is that he's going to be a head coach
too soon. He s ready, I just don t want nim
to go. Cnarlie Strong is a fabulous individual
and a great coach. He's going to be a head
coach. I think that will be to Florida's credit
when he moves on and becomes a Division
I head coach.

AA: Is it a problem that will fix itself over time?
SBM: No, I think it's going to take pressure, con-
stant pressure, to make sure that there's an
emphasis on developing African-American
coaches. I know Jeremy [Foley] would love
to hire African-American coaches when he
can. The problem is that the level in which
we're recruiting, we just don't have a feeder
system that makes that possible. That's why
we've got to give coaches a chance to move
up and get better.

because, even though the Gators will be taking plenty
of shots downfield, it is a run-first system that fuels the
passing game.
If running backs DeShawn Wynn, Skyler Thornton and
Markus Manson continue their progression, there might not
be a ceiling high enough to contain the Gators' offense in
2005--SEC defense or not.

With the season opener drawing near, the biggest
question facing the offense right now is -at the running
back positibn. The term spread offense is a bit deceiving


Smith has agreed to allow center
Randolph Morris to return to the
Wildcats after going unpicked in last
month's NBA Draft. According to a
seldom-used rule, Morris could return
if he proves he didn't hire an agent and
incurred all expenses for pro workouts.
Morris, whodisrespectfully notified
Sn-dth of his decision to stay in the Draft
via fax, now is awaiting the outcome of
discussions between Kentucky and the
NCAA to determine his ehgibihty.
Similarly, Ricky Williams, burnt out
on being a bum-out, has been cleared to
return to the Dolphins after a one-year
world tour.
Smith, Saban, good luck com-
manding the respect of your players.
Somebody ought to give these guys a
spinal tap, because their backbones must
be made of jelly.


Why, it's Detroit Pistons spokesman
Matt Dobek. Whew ... I thought it was
God again.
After falling one game short of a
second consecutive NBA championship
with the Pistons, the only coach to win
both a collegiate and pro tiile and the
first man to lead six different teams to
the NBA playoffs was let go Tuesday.
I When asked if the organization fired
Brown, Dobek responded, "Say what
you want."
Why, thanks guy. I'll just say Brown
dumped the Pistons first when he
failed to dispute reports of leaving that
Dumpster of a city.
Who's the walrus now, bitch?
just when colors started tasting nor-
mal, Kentucky Wildcats boss hoss Tubby
Smith and rookie Mian-d Dolphins coach
Nick Saban had to blow my mind.

Perhaps this is more an indicator
of the severe quarterback talent defi-
cit the SEC is facing. Georgia's David
Greene, Auburn's Jason CvnpbeR and
Arkansas' Matt Jones-the three passers
that separated Leak from Cutler last sea-
son-all have moved on to the NFL after
their senior seasons.
Still, what justifies Cutler leap-frog-
ging a guy who averaged nearly 100
passing yards more per game with the
Zooker patrolling the sidelines?
And fans are supposed to trust
some of these same coaches to
anonymously influence the BCS?
But what can you do?
Shut up! Who's speaking?
