STUDENT GOVERNMENT


Online voting



to go secure

By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

A new plan for online voting is two weeks away from
becoming Student Government law, but not everyone in SG
believes the new program offers the accessibility needed to
increase student participation in SG elections.
The SG online-voting committee met Sunday and almost
unanimously decided that "secured-site" online voting, which
requires students to vote on-campus, was the way to go.
The committee made its final choice for the secured system
over "unsecured-site" online voting, which would allow stu-
dents to vote anywhere via the Internet.
"The only way to preserve voter insulation, complete
anonymity of the ballot and privacy was to preserve polling
locations that would not allow for voter coercion," committee
chairman Sen. Jared Hernandez said.
The system, which will be presented to the Student Senate
today for the first time, does not allow multiple votes and is re-
garded as the most secure option, according
to an SG Web site.
It also would allow students to vote at
any polling location on campus..
The current paper-ballot system requires
students to vote at designated locations
based on their majors and is believed to
increase the likelihood of ballot-compromis-
Kassim i-g.
Senate president "That will be the question for senators
on Tuesday," Hernandez said. "What do we
privilege most? Is it convenience or integrity?"
Hernandez said the proposed system will save SG $25,000
to $30,000 every election, the cost of maintaining and process-
ing paper ballots.
The committee used the results from 19 non-SG member
ballots passed out at last week's public forum in their decision-
making process, Hernandez said, although the results of that
informal ballot were inconsistent with their final decision.
Seven participants in the forum poll voted for "online voting
via unsecured system," six for "online voting via secured sys-
tem," three for "none of the above" or didn't mark their cards,
two for "paper system" and one for "electronic voting."
"The numbers are pretty low," Hernandez said. "I wouldn't
make that big a deal out of the indications from the public fo-
rum."
Non-SG members also voiced their opinions anonymously
on the ballots.
"We owe it to the student body to get the highest voter turn-
out possible," one participant wrote.
Another wrote, "'Secured' online voting is extremely im-
perative because 'unsecured' voting could get severely out of
control."
The "online voting via unsecured system" does not have as
many security checkpoints. But a description of the unsecured
system on the SG Web site states, that "ballots are not easily

Campus housing to receive wireless


* MOST DORM COMMON AREAS
SHOULD HAVE WIRELESS INTER-
NET BY NEXT YEAR.

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

Students living in UF housing soon
will have access to wireless Internet
in common areas thanks to efforts
by Student Government and the
Department of Housing and Education
to increase online technology usage on
campus.
While wireless Internet access is
available throughout much of UF's
northeast sector, including Turlington
Plaza, residence halls do not yet boast
wireless capabilities.
Assistant Director of Housing
Sharon Blansett said that will begin to
change within the next year.

"In village communities, which
house a lot of graduate students, we're
trying to make commons areas wireless
by 2006," she said.
After the technology is imple-
mented in graduate housing areas, it
will be tested in several undergraduate
housing facilities, includ-
On ing the common areas
Campus of Hume, Graham and
Broward halls.
In addition, several halls will fea-
ture outdoor wireless coverage.
"The. Tolbert-Riker park is going to
have it, and the Murphree courtyards
were just redone, and they'll have it as
well," Blansett said. "We want students
to have Internet capabilities outside of
just their rooms."
However, Blansett emphasized that
Internet access inside individual rooms
will remain the same.
"I don't anticipate this replacing the

DHNet system," she said. "It's more of
an additional thing."
While wireless access in graduate
villages will be funded by the hous-
ing department, SG passed legislation
during Spring providing for the new
technology to be installed in other loca-
tions across campus as well as the Lake
Wauburg area.
Last year, a Senate bill appropriated
$23,980 of reserve money toward fund-
ing the technology.
"For. the most part, we wanted to
cover outdoor areas," said former
Student Body Treasurer Dennis Ngin,
who also co-authored the bill along
with the executive staff of last year's
SG administration.
"We also covered indoor places like
Hume and Broward because they're ma-
jor traffic areas, and I think the Graham
Gallery is open 24 hours a day."

Repairs put damper on O'Dome summer swimming
By GRACE SINCLAIR He said expenses will be minimal -Il k e L A
,-, I :., Contributing Writer as both the deck' and the liner are -
still under warranty. -.
^ ,. ., .. 1 c' ^^iL ^k ^^c ^ _alSSS 77 ^^^^*B\ ^^^ h


Students have to find a new
place to swim for the dog days of
summer.
The Stephen C. O'Connell
Center Pool has been closed for
five weeks to resurface the deck
and to replace the pool liner. It is
scheduled to reopen
Student Aug. 24.
Life The deck is being
repaired because it is
starting to wear away
and is slippery, said Jeremy Cynkar,
assistant director of the O'Connell
Center.
Although there have been no
accidents from the slick deck, it still
has been a safety concern, he said.
Cynkar said the pool deck was
resurfaced by Sundek last summer
and is still under warranty.
"I know the deck wasn't done
correctly," he said.
When the pool deck is resur-
faced, an extra compound will be
added to make it less slick when
wet, he said.
Weller Pools will replace the pool
liner, which has worn down over
time, he said.


Cynkar said he tried to minimize
the time the pool will be closed by
ordering the repairs for the end of
summer. The pool will be closed for
the last three weeks of school and
the two weeks of break.
"I have made it a point to them
that it must be done by the 23rd,"
he said.
Recreational swimmers can use
the Florida Pool next to the Student
Recreation and Fitness Center while
the center's indoor pool is being re-
paired, he said.
Erva Gilliam, coordinator of
the Carse Swimming and Diving
Complex, said swim-team practice
scheduled at the O'Connell Center
will be held at the facility's outdoor
pool,, owned by the University
Athletic Association.
Because the outdoor pool has
only five lanes compared to the in-
side pool's eight, practice times will
be staggered to accommodate the
swim team, she said.
The UAA pool also will be used
by swim camps and the UF football
team for water resistance, she said.
"It is going to be tight," she said.


While their daughters swim in the outdoor pool, Tonya Meyer and Sue Woodford stay cool inside the
Stephen C. O'Connell Center on Monday. The indoor pool has been drained for repairs and resurfacing.


Engineering college receives $1 million endowment


* THE GIFT COULD TOTAL
MORE THAN $2 MILLION.

By CRYSTAL HENRY
Alligator Writer
chenry@alligator.org

A major employer of graduates
from UF's College of Engineering
gave back to the university Friday
when Harris Corporation donated
more than $1 million to endow mul-
tiple professorships in the engineer-


ing program.
Howard Lance, chairman, presi-
dent and CEO of Harris Corporation,
presented UF President Bernie
Machen and College of Engineering
Dean Pramod Khargonekar with the
gift Friday morning in front of the
New Engineering Building.
"The college and Harris agree
that the best way to move the
engineering program to the next
level is add well-respected faculty in
specific areas of study," Harris Corp.
spokesman Tom Hausman said.


The company initially pledged
$1 million over five years, but it
then tacked on an
extra $25,000 so
the gift would be
eligible for state-
matched funds
totaling $768,750
from the State
of Florida Major
Machen Gifts Trust Fund,
Hausman said.
Machen also announced the gift
will be matched with $250,000 from


a fund set up through his Faculty
Challenge initiative, which brings
the *potential value of the. -gift --to
more than $2 million.
Six years ago, Harris Corp. made
a previous pledge of $600,000, which
was used for graduate fellowship
awards, to the engineering school.'
UF has been the No. 1 recruiting
source for Harris Corp. for the past
five years, said Hausman.
"Many of our high-caliber
engineers have gone to work for
Harris," said Vikram Shishodia,


assistant director of the Division of
Student Affairs for the College of
Engineering.
Hausman said Harris Corp. cur-
rently employs 460 UFP grads, 320
of whom are engineers. He said
Harris Corp. also employs business
and accounting majors, for a total
workforce of about 12,500 world-
wide, 6,500 of whom are engineers
or scientists.
Twenty-two UF graduates were
hired by Harris Corp. this year,
Hausman said.

Sweltering heat doesn't keep locals from protest rally


* THE RALLY WAS PUT ON TO
RAISE AWARENESS OF THE
"DOWNING STREET MEMOS."

By DIANA MAZZELLA
Alligator Contributing Writer

More than the local heat index
rose this weekend as Gainesville
residents gathered to call for a
government review of documents
challenging the U.S. government's
impetus for invading Iraq.
About80peoplesweated, listened,
fanned themselves, applauded, ate,
performed and made speeches to
commemorate the Downing Street
Memo Third Anniversary Event at
the Florida School of Massage on
Saturday afternoon.


.m 0 .


*. *.


Organized by local political
groups such as the county branches
of Progressives, Democrats and the
Green Party, Veterans for Peace and
the Community Coalition Against
War and Terror, the event called for
government action on the Downing
Street memos.
The memos are said to contain
evidence that the Bush administra-
tion planned the war in Iraq before
the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001
and that the British government
had no knowledge of the develop-
ment of weapons of mass destruc-
tion in Iraq.
Retired Navy officer Dave
Bruderly, who plans to run in the
2006 Congressional race for Florida's
sixth district, took to the small wood-
en house's front porch, a makeshift
stage on the grounds of the school,


and emphasized the memos were
"memorandum[s] of fact."
He said the United Nations
should be brought into Iraq and the
United States should get out.
Former Ambassador to Peru
Dennis Jett, who now serves as
dean of UF's International Center,
was widely ap-
Around plauded as he de-
Gainesville livered remarks
at the request of
his former research assistant who
was involved in the event.
"If we supported our troops,
we'd impeach their leader," he
said, calling for listeners to involve
their friends.
After his speech, Jett equated
the events behind the war in Iraq
to Watergate and said he thought
"a crime has been committed at the


highest level in Washington."
Event coordinator Shelly Packer
said approximately 500 other groups
met in cities across the country on
the same day to discuss the issue.
Later in the afternoon, a hand-
ful of performers and a dog named
Rooty staged a rendition of the
meeting from which the documents
originated at 10 Downing St. in
2002.
The basic script came from the
Web site, www.afterdowningstreet.
org, said Jerry Rose, the playwright
who adapted the script for the
day's performance.
Rose said he expanded the infor-
mation from the Web site to include
things for dramatic effect that may
not have been said at the meeting
but were from other memos.
Though hard to hear at times, it


drew an appreciative roar from the
audience when "Tony Blair" made
his entrance as a Bush-mask-wearing
dachshund led by owner David Dick.
The event was funded by in-
kind donations from organizers
and individuals who purchased
food items or rented sound equip-
ment for the event, Packer said. In
total, he said the event was funded
by about $300.
Brenda Bayne, a co-coordinator
of the Alachua County's chapter of
Democracy for America, said the
number of attendees who braved
the summer heat showed the
Gainesville community's interest in
what was happening with its gov-
ernment. She also said the people
who attended were not radical.
"They actually care about
America," Bayne said.

Editorial


Unsecure choice

Internet voting the only

real step forward
We spoke too soon last week when we said online vot-
ing was on its way to Student Government.
The proposal possibly on its way to Student Senate
isn't for online voting at all in fact, it's a lie.
For years, SG has appointed committees, commissioned in-
dependent reports, hired consultants and received petitions on
this issue. Every lime a plan gets close to implementation, it's
killed before it reaches the Senate floor.
In February, a petition with more than 1,000 signatures call-
ing for a ballot initiative on online voting was denied by the SG
Supreme Court on less than a loophole more like the eye of a
needle.
The letter announcing the Court's decision stated "ambigu-
ous" language in the petition made it unclear whether it called
for an initiative, which if passed becomes binding law, or a ref-
erendum, which is just a show of support or dissent.
Of course, the petition said "initiative" several times and in
no place said "referendum."
But SG sat on the hopes of an appointed online-voting com-
mittee, which spent all summer reviewing information gath-
ered by past committees.
Then that committee called a forum last week to present its
findings. Suddenly, two options were considered online voting:
"secured-site" voting, which used to be called Intranett voting,"
an online voting system restricted to on-campus polling loca-
tions; and "unsecured-site" voting, which is true Internet voting.
The latter was rejected and then banned by the committee
in the face of strong student support because of "security con-
cerns," a term as ambiguous as that loophole.
What security concerns? We've never heard a single argu-
ment outlining specific problems with Internet voting that don't
have easy solutions and aren't an issue with all voting systems.
True, committee members can scare us by saying our votes
could be coerced by evil forces within SG. But that happens now
on campus using paper ballots.
Proponents of the "secured" system say keeping the polls
controlled will prevent voter influence from crossing the "50-
foot halo" around the location, so voters won't have people
looking over their shoulders. But the coercion that takes place
now shows that 50-foot barrier means nothing.
Who really has an incentive to restrict voting to a handful
of polling locations on campus? Groups who can capitalize on
the relatively few students with a lot of access to the sites like
those who live on campus.
The recent SFCC transfer student with a full-time job and
maybe a full-blown life outside of keeping incessant track of
every detail of SG isn't the type we've heard accused of voter
coercion.
It also means all the convincing we've had from UF about
the ways we are forced to interact with the university online are
safe and mostly free from harm they're all predicated on a lie.
If a student thinks nothing of shooting thousands of dollars
through ISIS on a semesterly basis, after having registered for
classes, verified sensitive financial aid information and pulled a
degree audit detailing every class she's ever taken, then she can
handle an Internet ballot.
But that hard-working student may not pay as much at-
tention as the few interested parties who vote in our current
system.
That's what some in SG may want to say, to defend artificial-
ly limiting turnout, but won't because it exposes the inherent
fallacy of the "democratic" system we have now.
Democracy is not supposed to be a system of elites. The pro-
cess takes a leap of faith and gives everyone a fair vote, and then
candidates try to appeal to as many as possible.
So we urge you to appeal to SG to do the right thing, the
thing you've voted for in every poll we've run for years let's
bring real, fair Internet voting to campus elections.

'Happy Jack' opens for Judge Roberts


On July 19, President Bush hit the stop button on.
the official presidential boom box, thus ending
almost three weeks of butt. shimmying for the
latest open seat on the Supreme Court.
There were many a bruised arse, but in the game of
Court musical chairs, "There can be only one!"
His name is John G. Roberts, Jr., and he currently
serves as an appellate judge on the U.S. Court of
Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
Bush announced Roberts' nomination in his first ever
prime-time press conference as president. No stranger
to pre-emption, Bush ended up delaying the first 15
minutes of NBC's new show "I Want to Be a Hilton."
Clearly, it's payback for his 2003 Nielsen ratings de-
feat to Paris Hilton when more Americans watched
"The Simple Life" than his interview with Diane
Sawyer.
Hilton's response at the time: "That's hot!"
Bush used the press conference to introduce Roberts
personally to the American people, but surprisingly, an-
other member of the Roberts family stole the show.
Roberts' 4-year-old son Jack was caught dancing
on camera while playing what appeared to be an air
guitar.
According to an anonymous but reliable .source,
"Happy Jack," as I like to call him, idolizes guitarist
Pete Townshend of The Who.
The elder Roberts was born in Buffalo, New York but
moved to Long Beach, Indiana when he was in elemen-
tary school. While in high school, he worked in a steel
mill his father managed.
Rumor has it former vice-presidential candidate
John Edwards responded to the nomination by running
through the streets of UNC shouting, "I too, am the son
of a millworker!"
Roberts graduated at the top of his class from both
Harvard College and Harvard Law School. While in


Aaron Blye school, he was more of a book-
Blye's Eyes worm than a Beantown booze-
ablye@alligator.org hound.
After graduating from Harvard
Law, Roberts became a clerk for
then-Associate Justice William Rehnquist. He later en-
tered private practice and argued 39 cases before the
Supreme Court in addition to working for former presi-
dents Reagan and Bush.
In 2001, a bipartisan group of more than 150 lawyers
sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee advo-
cating Roberts' appointment to the D.C. Circuit, but it
wasn't until 2003 that his appointment was realized.
Many Democrats and Republicans believe he is one
of the most talented legal minds in America.
It was inevitable that President Bush would nomi-
nate someone more conservative than retiring Justice
Sandra Day O'Connor, but thankfully he chose a candi-
date that appears to be more even-minded than several
of the rumored nominees.
However, Democrats are correct to withhold judg-
ment until the Senate Judiciary Committee Hearings.
Liberals are ready to grill Roberts on the hot-button
issue of abortion. As an attorney he wrote a brief advo-
cating the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade; but in
all fairness he was representing the views of a client.
Although I believe women have a constitutional
right to choose abortion, liberals must not forget there
are other extremely important issues like civil liberties,
abuse of executive power, environmental law and emi-
nent domain.
It was basically inevitable that the Supreme Court
would move to the right, but if "Happy Jack".keeps on
rockin' in the free world, his antics just might influence
good ol' dad to loosen up and take a chill pill. -

Letters to the Editor
Speak out at Senate on online voting
Editor. This summer, many senators and
students alike have been working diligently
at addressing students' concerns relating to
Student Government elections, specifically
online voting. I formed an online voting com-
mittee because I believe the issue has been ad-
dressed ineffectively during my tenure in SG
and the Student Senate.
Online voting has been a campaign issue in
elections for many years and has yet to receive
the attention it deserves.
However, I personally do not believe this
can be done without student input. I firmly
believe this is a student issue and not an SG
issue.
I always believed when students speak,
senators must listen. Moreover, the more stu-
dents participate in dialogue about SG issues,
the more responsive SG will become. Students
must reinember that we are here to serve them
and not to serve ourselves.
Therefore, I encourage students to come
and voice their opinions tonight during the
Senate session at 7 p.m. in room 282 of the
Reitz Union and speak to their senators about
online voting and which option they prefer.
. Whether students are for or against online
voting, senators need to hear from students,
who are the people they serve.
Diane Kassim
Student Senate President


Secured-site voting only a first step'
Editor: Today, a bill will be brought before
the Student Senate altering the Student Body
Statutes Election Code, authorizing the use
of online voting in Student Government elec-
tions.
The bill, authored by the Senate Committee
to Investigate Online Voting, will recommend
SG adopt a system of online voting that al-
lows students to submit votes via on-campus
computers from any of ten on-campus polling
locations, once they have had their identifica-
tion verified by a poll worker.
I applaud the committee for bringing to
partial fruition a cause that is long overdue.
However, I remain deeply disappointed
with my representatives in SG who have de-
cided to conserve instead of empower.
Instituting a truly universal system of
online voting, one which more than 1,200 stu-
dents expressed an interest in, and one which
would allow any student to vote from any
computer, would have been an opportunity
for every member of,the Student Senate to
stand behind its promise from Spring 2005 to
institute a system of online voting.
The committee's recommendation is a
good first step, but it is just that: a first step.
If SG officials want to be taken seriously, they
must continue their work toward making true


online voting a reality.
Until then, the promise to "Bring SG to
Every Gator" remains unfulfilled.

Senate disregarded student opinion
Editor: I am extremely disappointed in
the online voting committee for putting its
personal biases ahead of students' express
wishes and interests.
Despite the petition that garnered more
than 1,200 signatures calling for online vot-
ing that allows students to vote from home,
the committee voted not only to recommend
secured-site online voting to the Senate but
to ban universal online voting (also termed
"unsecured-site online voting").
It should not surprise us that it is rare
that most students take a stance on a Student
Government-related issue since the one time
they did, the Senate disregarded their input.
Banning this money-saving measure
that would enfranchise great numbers of
students is a self-serving move after all,
the current system is what elected most
of the .members of the committee and
the Senate or the people who appointed
them.
It does not embody the spirit of democ-

Racism explodes at intramural game
Editor: At a premier institution like UF, you
would expect issues such as racism to occur.
But I'm sad and infuriated it has happened.
A group of my friends and I were playing
intramural softball last week when the incident
occurred. The team came out jeering and ob-
noxious, but we played it off sports will be
sports. But then the comments got out of hand.
One of the spectators in the bleachers cried
out, "I didn't know Chinese people can play
softball!" and the opposing team cracked up
with laughter. We didn't say anything because
we didn't want a scene.
However, the jeering continued with chants
of, "America! America! Go USA!"
We issued a complaint with the officials,
but they offered no help. Their words were,
"We can't do anything. I didn't see it."
I was born and raised in the United States
as an American. I speak fluent English. I like
wings and beer. I love Gators football. But be-
cause of the color of my skin I'm treated as an
alien, someone who doesn't belong.

New physical therapy grad program offered at UF


By MELISSA GARCIA
Alligator Contributing Writer

UF graduate students can begin working
toward an entry-level clinical doctoral degree
in physical therapy for the first time this Fall.
The Doctor of Physical Therapy degree,
or DPT, will replace the current master's
program in the physical-therapy department
of UF's College of Public Health and Health
Professions and is offered by only one other
Florida public university, USF.
The goal of the new program is to make
graduates capable of evaluation and patient
treatment when working wvith other health
professionals as part of a team, said Jane Day,
clinical professor and assistant chair of the
physical-therapy department.
"The practice has changed so much that
we need more information to provide care,"


she said.
Compared to the master's program, the
DPT program will require 35 additional credit
hours and a clinical internship, Day said. _
However, she said the entire 113-credit cur-
riculum has been refocused to meet the objec-
tives of the new program.
"There's a bigger emphasis on health
promotion and wellness in the programs,"
Day said. "The whole curriculum has been
redone."
Old courses have been restructured and
integrated with new courses to focus on topics
such as radiology and imaging, pharmacology
and diagnosis, she said.
Mark Bishop, physical therapy lecturer,
said he has been updating his lecture notes
and slides to the new curriculum during the
summer.
"The old curriculum has anatomy and bio-


mechanics as separate classes," he said. "The
new curriculum combines the subjects into
one big superclass that's two semesters long."
Bishop said students complained in pre-
S | vious years about feeling
disconnections in class
material.
Srz Students would dissect
....; the arm but not talk about
the biomechanics of the
arm until the next semester
when, at that time, they're
*Day dissecting the foot, he said.
By eliminating redun-
dancy in classes and reordering lecture ma-
terial, the new curriculum will help students
easily absorb information, he said.
To apply for the program, students need a
bachelor's degree, a minimum score of 1000
on the Graduate Record Examinations and


at least 40 hours of observation or volunteer
work as well as other requirements, Day said.
Current master's students caught in the
transition will have the option to earn a DPT
by completing an extra year of courses, she
said.
As more planned classes arrive, the de-
partment will need more faculty members to
fulfill the needs of students, Day said. One
new instructor has been hired already, and
the department plans to hire four more in the
coming year, she said.
Since the American Physical Therapy
Association is endorsing the switch to the new
program nationwide, Day said she believes
the program will continue to expand and
grow in popularity.
"To be competitive realistically now, pro-
grams have to do this, or they're not going to
get all the applicants," she said.

compromised."
The unsecured system is
also cheaper.
Hernandez said the com-
mittee thought the unsecured
option -could promote voter
coercion.
"I think there is voter
persuasion (now)," he said.
"There's a 50-foot halo around
the polling location so there's
not direct voter coercion."
This legislation does not in-
clude UF's satellite campuses
and study-abroad programs,
but Hernandez said that
group of students will not be
ignored.
"We would be able to set up


a polling location at the satellite
campus," he said. "They would
be able to vote there. Students
studying abroad have to re-
quest an absentee ballot."
But Senate President Diane
Kassim, who created the com-
mittee, said secured-site voting
might not be the best conclusion
given student sentiment toward
an Internet system.
"This may be a'compro-
-mise, but I don't want to
compromise with the students
losing in the end," she said. "I
don't want them to be blind-
sided by this version of online
voting. I know a lot of my-con-
stituents prefer the unsecured
option."
Kassim said at one point
she thought the situation was a


political ploy, but added the di-
versity in the online voting com-
mittee gives her confidence.
"The diversification of the
body helped," she said. "I do
believe it's a step in the right
direction."
However, she said the termi-
nology used to distinguish be-
tween the online-voting mod-
els is confusing. Hernandez
said the committee came to an
agreement on the names.
Sources close to SG said
some members had a prob-
lem with the way Hernandez
handled his committee.
Committee member Sen.
Gareth Kerr said he hasn't
seen it.
"I think that he was biased
in making sure that we had a


system that would satisfy our
three goals: integrity, access
and participation," he said. "If
you want to call that bias, then
he's biased to those goals."
Committee member Sen.
Susan Henriques said the
committee's finished product
just isn't the best option.
"I feel like a large portion of
students would say that they
want unsecured online vot-
ing," she said. "The bill that
the committee has designed
to put through is not what the
students want."
Hernandez said his chair-
manship has been a challenge.
"This is a political hand gre-
nade," he said.

spent the allotted funds but speculated
the Department of Housing may have
made the final purchases to implement
the technology.
In order to help cover expenses for
wireless networking, rental rates for
residence halls may increase, though
Blansett said students living on cam-
pus shouldn't anticipate major pricing
changes in the near future.
"We have to work a year ahead on
rental-rate adjustments, and the rates
we have set through Summer 2006 are
already in place," she said.
In addition to expanded wireless
Internet, Blansett said her department
will have upgraded DHNet speed from
10 MB to 100 MB by Fall.
"Students are. so tech-savvy now,
and we're hoping to accommodate
that," she said.
UF freshman Liliam Jarquin, a resi-
dent of Rawlings Hall, said the plan for
increased wireless coverage sounds
useful.
"I think that's good in case you need
to study in that area," she said.
"As long as it doesn't make a huge
difference in your rent payment, it's
OK."

STUDENT LIFE

UF's strongest students compete for campus honor


By RYAN WIERENGA
Alligator Contributing Writer

A final grunt of brute strength and deter-
mination was barely audible over the sound
of about 50 cheering onlookers as the tractor
tire was flipped over the finish line.
James Maynor, 20, let out a yell of victory
and relief as he completed the medley event
in just under a minute.
On Sunday at the UVS Field, 15 of UF's
strongest students competed for the title of
the strongest in the Strong Gator, a strength
competition hosted by the Division of
Recreational Sports and modeled after the
World's Strongest Man.
The competition consisted of five mock
WSM events. The crucifix hold tested en-
durance and strength as students held out
15-poundweights at a 90-degree angle until
they dropped them. The Olympic dead lift
required students to perform as many rep-
etitions as possible in 60 seconds with 315
pounds on the bar.
The Atlas Stone event consisted of lift-
ing three water coolers weighing up to 150
pounds onto a table. For the farmer's walk,
competitors had to carry a 140-pound block
of concrete in each hand as far as they could.
The final event was the medley, which
involved a weighted sled pull, pushing a
wheel barrel filled with 240 pounds of sand
and weights, and a giant tire-flip over a set
course. .
The weights were adjusted for the three
female competitors.
Maynor took first place in three of the five
events and won the overall title of strongest
gator. He has power lifted since high school

Gator contest Sunday.
and currently trains twice a day, six days a
week. His favorite event was the dead lift,
which he won with 20 repetitions.
"It feels great to win considering how
tough the competition was out here,"
Maynor said.
Kristin Trout, known as "The Krusher,"
won the women's overall title of strongest
gator.


"I'm tired, but all the pain was worth it
because now I have. a new pick-up line to
use at the bars," Trout said.
She said she will take her opponent and
roommate, Mandy, out to dinner with the
gift certificates she won from the competi-
tion.
Rick Stone, a 39-year-old decision and
information sciences graduate student, was


the oldest competitor at Strong. Gator. He
said he participated because he likes to com-
pete and wanted to make a statement.
"I want to be UF's strongest computer
nerd," Stone said.
Stone said it was difficult to train for the
competition because there is no real way to
simulate the events.
"I don't have a giant tire or a weighted
sled in my backyard," he said.
Most competitors made only minor
changes to their regular work-out routines
while training for the event. Graduate stu-
dent Ryan Hall said he added grip-strength
training to his normal work-out routine in
order to prepare.
Hall said his favorite event was the farm-
er's walk and that the crucifix hold "burned
like hell."
Debbie Renelus, a UF senior, said she felt
most comfortable with the crucifix hold and
the medley.
In order to prepare for the Strong Gator
competition she added heavier weights to
her routine and didn't do any cardiovascu-
lar training for the last week and a half.
Mai Tran, a strength and conditioning
graduate assistant, helped plan and run
the competition. She said this event ran
more smoothly and was more fun than the
trial competition that had been hosted in the
Spring.
"All the volunteers and the competitors
really made this event great and worth-
while," Tran said.
The next Strong Gator competition will
be held during the Spring semester. Both
Maynor and "The Krusher" said they will be
back to defend their titles.

PUBLIC SAFETY

UPD offers free defense class


By RESHELLE SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Last Tuesday, seven women filed
into a classroom in the University
Police Department with one goal: to
learn to defend themselves.
UPD's Rape Aggression Defense
program, or RAD, a free, three-part
12-hour class, gives women the ba-
sic tools they need to protect them-
selves from an attacker, said officer
Darren Sanders, a RAD instructor
and coordinator of the program.
Sanders spoke about topics rang-
ing from how to stay safe at home
to safety when walking to one's car
and when out on a date.
One piece of advice he offered
was to attempt to break into their
own houses.
"If you can get in, the bad guys
can too," he said.
Other advice included trimming
shrubs and bushes, especially those
covering windows, making sure
entrances are well-lit and keeping
a phone in the bedroom to call for
help in an emergency.


On Wednesday, the class learned
some self-defense moves, and dur-
ing the third class the students ex-
perienced simulations of dangerous
situations.
"If you can get in, the bad
'guys can too."
Darren Sanders
RAD instructor

The chief benefit of the class is
that people with no background
in self-defense can learn to protect
themselves; Sanders said. If they
should ever be attacked, they at
least have a chance to defend them-
selves.
"It gives them options," he said.
Alissa Barnard, a junior at Florida
State University who is home for the
break, took the class a little more
than a year ago. She came back be-
cause the class gave her confidence,
she said.
"It's good to refresh," she said.
"You forget it quickly."


In 2003, eight cases of sexual
battery, which includes Tape, were
reported on or near the UP campus.
Sexual battery is the least reported
crime, Sanders said. He said he
believes the actual number of cases
may be higher. According to a RAD
brochure, 10 times more are commit-
ted than are reported.
According to a 2001 report by
the U.S. Department of Justice, three
percent of college-age women will
have some experience with a rape
during a typical college year.
Sixty women have been through
the class this year, a higher number
than usual, Sanders said, while 265
have completed it since the program
came to UF in Spring 2000.
The classes are offered to anyone
associated with UF and to those in
the community.
Classes are usually limited to 10
or 12 women.
For more information or to sign
up for a class, contact officer Darren
Sanders at 392-1409 or by e-mail at
dsanders@admin.ufl.edu.

prevalent among UF students during the last
five years, a UF expert said.
Paul Doering, co-director of the UF Drug
Information and Pharmacy Resource Center,
said in a phone interview that students "are
discovering prescription drugs."
A July 7 report by the National Center on -
Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia
University stated that the abuse of prescrip-
tion drugs had reached "epidemic" levels,
' with 15.1 million abusers in the United States.
The number .of Americans who abused
prescription drugs nearly doubled from 1992
to 2003, according to the report.
Teenagers were the fastest-growing group
of new abusers, with 2.3 million Americans.
Doering said he was not surprised by the
recent findings.
"On college campuses, UF included,
prescription drugs tend to be used for recre-
ational purposes rather than prescription,"


Doering said. "The thing that concerns me the
most is that people think they are safer than
hard drugs."
Doering said prescriptions, especially
when mixed with other drugs, can be more
lethal than street drugs. He said students do
not understand the consequences and under-
estimate the drugs' effects. *
In Spring 2000, a UF freshman died after
mixing alcohol with an 80-milligram dose
of a powerful opioid pain reliever called
OxyContin. Abuse of prescription opioids
rose 542 percent among teenagers during the
10-year span, more. than four times the rate of
increase among adults.
"The perceived danger of a drug is inverse-
ly proportional to the level of its use," Doering
said. "That's the problem with prescription
drug abuse people think the risk is mini-
mal. I feel sad for people who are so naive."
Charles, a third-year UF marketing major
who does not Want to use his full name be-
cause Qf a pending legal investigation, said he
- learned his lesson after misusing a prescrip-
tion drug last Spring.


Charles took a rectangular pill known as a
"bar" of Xanax, a benzodiazepine used for anti-
anxiety, while drinking with friends at a party.
He said he drank no more than six beers
over a couple of hours.
"When you start mixing and
matching these drugs, it is hard to
predict the outcomes."
Paul Doering
UF Drug Information and Pharmacy
Resource Center co-director

"I still have no idea what happened that
night," Charles said. "I was at a party around
midnight. Next thing I know, it's sunny out-
side, and I'm in my own bed. Lying on the
floor was a notice to appear from University
Police for disorderly conduct."
Charles was seen near a vandalized luxury
car in a parking garage approximately two
miles from the party, according to a 'police
report. UPD escorted him home at 4 a.m.
He had no recollection of the incident.


Doering said amnesia associated with mixing
Xanax and alcohol can be "pretty profound."
"When you start mixing and matching
these drugs, it is hard to predict the out-
comes," Doering said.
Since coming to UF as an undergraduate in
1967, Doering has seen a lot of changes in the
drug scene. He said the student lifestyle has
changed completely from when he was an
undergraduate.
He believes the 2 a.m. bar-closing time is
a reason for the "power drinking and power
drugging" that occurs at the "pre-party."
UPD spokesman Lt. Joe Sharkey said his
agency does not keep statistics on prescrip-
tion-drug offenses but that arrests are "very
rare."
In Charles' case, UPD was unaware he had
consumed Xanax.
Doering said prescription drugs are fairly
easy to obtain illegally through the Internet,
theft, local dealers or fraudulent claims made
to doctors.
"Where there's a market, there is a supply,"
he said.

,An informal league has
been playing the game

UF center accused of using tennis racket as weapon


Late night incident leads to


arrest of 7-foot-2 star


Editor's note: One of the most
hilarious crimes in UF sports his-
tory may have made Schintzius
a laughingstock around the
SEC, but the center would have
the last laugh. Here are two
stories about an unforgettable
moment.
By DAN EVANS
November 8, 1988

UF basketball player Dwayne
Schintzius is in trouble with
his coaches and with the police
after two men say he attacked
them with a tennis racket early
Saturday morning behind a
downtown nightclub.
Head basketball coach Norm
Sloan suspended Schintzius
indefinitely Monday for an "off-
the-court" incident. The junior
center, who has often been criti-
cized for his on-the-court behav-
ior, can practice with the team
but will not play for an undeter-
mined number of games.
Saturday morning, Gainesville
police charged Schintzius with
two counts of battery for strik-
ing Paul Sullivan, 20, and Eric
Gettshall, 20, with a tennis racket
following a 2 a.m. argument in
the rear parking lot of the Animal
House nightclub.


Police reports said conflicting
accounts prevented them from
making an arrest at the scene.
Instead, police issued a sworn
complaint against the 7-foot-
2 Schintzius. They also filed
battery charges against Robet
Emmon, a friend of Schintzius,
-who was involved in the fight.
Sullivan, a UF psychology
student, also faces charges for
throwing a half-full beer can into
Schintzius' car.
Conflicting wit-
Classic ness reports have
Story clouded the events
... that led to the at-
tack.
Schintzius, 20, declined to
comment Monday, but Sullivan
said the fight started after some-
body in Schintzius' car threw a
beer can into a group of people
standing outside the nightclub.
The police report said a beer
bottle hit Gainesqville resident
Anne Caruso but doesn't men-
tion Sullivan getting struck.
Caruso said Monday she wasn't
hit with a bottle.
Sullivan, however, maintains
that a beer can hit him in the
thigh.
After getting hit, Sullivan said
he picked up the can and threw


it into the passing car. The car
stopped and Schintzius and a
friend got out-Schintzius hold-
ing a tennis racket.
"You never realize ho he is until he's standing in front
of you with a tennis racket,"
Sullivan said.
Schintzius told police the in-
cident began after someone first
threw a beer bottle at his car.
Police reports said Schiqtzius
and Enmon, a 22-year-old
Brandon resident, exited the
car and entered the crowd.
Schintzius began swinging the
tennis racket,in the crowd, strik-
ing both Sullivan and Getshall,
reports said.
When police arrived they
questioned Schintzius and
Enmon, who were about to drive
away.
Freshman basketball player
Jose Ramos, who was also in the
car with Schintzius, was ques-
tioned but not charged in the
incident.
Schintzius has had a turbu-
lent career at UF since arriving
in 1986. His problems have been
related to his on-court attitude.
Some players and coaches who
have worked with Schintzius
said that his trying out this sum-
mer for the U.S. Olympic basket-
ball team, under the instruction
of Georgetown head coach John
Thompson, has helped Schintzius
mature.


Schintzius hit with tennis balls, leads Gators to victory


* A PRACTICAL JOKE BY VANDY
FANS ENDS UP HANDING THE
GATORS AN OVERTIME WIN.

STAFF REPORT
JANUARY 26, 1989

Being hit by a tennis ball probably
never felt so good for UF center Dwayne
Schintzius.
A hail of tennis balls directed
at Schintzius enabled him to send
Wednesday's game against Vanderbilt
into overtime and ultimately allowed


UF to beat the Commodores 81-78 in the
Memorial Coliseum in Nashville.
Vanderbilt led 72-70 when UF forward
Livingston Chatman threw the ball away
with one second remaining in regulation.
Fans then threw tennis balls onto the court
to taunt Schintzius, who was suspended
for four games this season for hitting a UF
student with a tennis racket.
But the tennis balls kept Schintzius-
and UF-in the game this time. Schintzius
and the Gators were awarded two tech-
nical foul shots. With 15,498 Vandy fans
looking on, Schintzius sank both shots to
send the game into overtime.


He then proceeded to score the first
seven points of overtime to give UF a lead
that Vanderbilt could not overcome.
-UF improved to 10-9 overall and 4-4
in the -Southeastern Conference. Vandy,
which was third in the SEC
before the game, fell to 10-9,
Classic 4-3.
Story "Schintzius stepped right
up there and made both of
them," UF coach Norm Sloan
said in his post-game radio interview.
"You can't have any more pressure than
what he had. I'm just real proud."
Schintzius scored 24 points in his 43


minutes, of action despite playing with a
sore back. Forward Dwayne Davis led UF
with 15 rebounds, 10 of them offensive.
Gator guard Clifford Lett played all 45
minutes.
Vanderbilt guard Barry Booker led
Vandy with 23 points and eight rebounds.
Booker hit seven of his 13 3-point field
goal attempts.
UF led for most of the first half, but
Vandy scored the first eight points of the
second half to take a 32-24 lead with 17:50
remaining. The Gators, behind 11 points
from Schintzius, closed the gap in the
second half.


FOOTBALL


Experts sound off on Gators' chance at national, SEC titles


STAFF REPORT


With the 2005-06 football season
rapidly approaching, preseason
predictions are heating up in media
outlets across the nation.
A big name first-year coach and
plenty of returning talent have fu-
eled especially massive speculation
over how Urban Meyer and the
Gators will fare this season.
Athlon Sports, who releases a
yearly college football prospectus,
said Meyer's arrival at UF heralds a
return to not only the high-powered
Gators' offense of yesterday, but also
to the winning tradition that accom-


panied it.
"Meyer knows how to win," said
Athlon's write-up of UF. "His chal-
lenge is to instill a winning attitude
in the Gators, who grew to accept
mediocrity during the Zook era. If
Meyer can do that, talent can take
Florida a long way."
As they usually do on the play-
ing field, UF and Tennessee have
found themselves battling across
a number of preseason polls this
offseason, heightening intensity of
the teams' already crucial Sept. 17
showdown.
Pete Fiutak of College Football
News has selected the match as one


of the top five in the 2005 season.
"These two should be ranked
in the. top five, at least in the top
ten, with the
winner getting a
big boost in the
-.l hunt for the Rose
Bowl," he wrote.

Sports, an agency
that provides
Meyer picks for both
professional and
collegiate athletics, predicts the
game will be a pivotal point in the
2005 season, and that the Gators will
prove victorious.


"Whoever wins that game has
an inside track to the Southeastern
Conference East title, and with
the game being in the Swamp, we
predict Florida will win this show-
down," the agency said.
Many experts are giving
Tennessee the nod over UF. Athlon
picked the Volunteers as the pre-
season No. 2 team in the nation,
while selecting UF No. 13-behind
Florida State (No. 5), LSU (No. 9)
and Miami (No. 11).
But in the the world of gambling,
the betting lines are painting a dif-
ferent picture. Current Las Vegas
odds place the Gators at 20-1 to win


the National Championship, while
the Volunteers trail slightly at 22-1.
LSU is the heavy favorite from the
SEC, currently sitting at 12-1.
The Gators' odds are 7-2 to win
the SEC, with the Volunteers falling
closely behind at 4-1. LSU tops the
lines again at 2-1.
A recent ESPN poll asked sports
fans to pick the quarterback most
likely to win the Heisman Award
other than USC's Matt Leinart.
Texas' Vince Young was the run-
away favorite, garnering over half
the votes, but Leak's numbers were
enough to place him in second with
13 percent of the fan votes.

Crowder-less UF moves on


By ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Staff Writer
eesteban@alligator.org

When a team loses a starter like Channing
Crowder to the NFL Draft, there would nor-
mally be a learning curve or struggle in the
following year to make up for the production
at that spot.
But with sophomore linebacker Brandon
Siler stepping into Crowder's lead role, and
junior Earl Everett becoming a veteran, UF's
linebacking core could actually improve in
2005.
Siler, last year's Southeastern Conference.
Freshman of the Year and last year's team
leader in tackles, took every opportunity he
could to study from the Miami Dolphins-
bound Crowder so that UF wouldn't miss a
beat.
"Brandon came in his freshman year and
learned a lot from Channing," Everett said.-
"He was lucky enough that he got a whole
bunch of playing time early and he's learned
the system perfectly."
From the front seven to the secondary,
nine starters from a year ago return to anchor
UF's defense.
While the faces might be the same, the
system itself has been tweaked in order to
be more aggressive in the trenches and in
coverage.
Co-defensive coordinators Charlie Strong
and Greg Mattison will. provide a flash of
old and new-school defense that should
be vastly improved from where the Gators
stood in 2004.
Junior defensive back Dee Webb could
be poised for a national breakout year after
leaving his mark on the SEC last year. Like
many other athletes,.Webb can easily recall


when the lights went on for him a year ago.
"I was learning more and more every
game, but in the LSU game when I got my
first pick and I had my hands on the ball it
was a relief," Webb said. "I dropped a couple.
[of balls] in the games before, but that's the
game that made me feel like I was in high
school and the game came to me easier."
UF will be counting on several of the new
defensive faces to get comfortable early on
and make an impact much like sophomore
safety Kyle Jackson did last year.
Four true freshmen Jon Demps, Kalvin
Baker, Ryan Stamper and
Af.y2jgg Darryl Gresham will
IH%1frfJI E compete for playing time
at the linebacker position.
Of the four, perhaps the one with best chance
to emerge and make an immediate impact
would be Demps.
At 6-foot-4, 219 pounds, the speedy line-
backer looks and plays much like Everett did
in his freshman year.
In the secondary, three true freshmen
could compete for time at starting corner,
nickel packages and the safety rotation.
Avery Atkins is the only true corner UF
signed, but he was widely regarded as one of
the nation's best while at Daytona Mainland
High School.
Dorian Munroe led Miami-Dade County
in interceptions while playing at Coral Reef
and Reggie Nelson could prove to be the best
of the bunch in time.
A sophomore transfer, Nelson was a
dominating safety while at Palm Bay High
School two years ago and continued to play
at a high level in junior college, leading his
team in tackles with 72 and catching six in-
terceptions.

Celtics sign Greene


By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
aabramson@alligator.org

When Orien Greene left UF for
Louisana-Lafayette in 2002, few
Gators fans expected to hear much
from, the former Gainesville High
star.
Greene had failed to live up to
expectations, and after he commit-
ted a last minute turnover in UF's
first round NCAA Tournament loss
to Creighton, Greene was hardly a
fan favorite.
But after the Boston Celtics sur-
prised many UF fans, and Greene
himself, by selecting him with the
53rd pick in this year's NBA Draft,
Boston president Danny Ainge went
a step further on Monday, agreeing
to a three-year deal with Greene
worth approximately $1.8 million.
The first year of the contract will be
guaranteed.
"It's a tremendous accomplish-
ment and I'm just excited to be
here," Greene said. "To get a chance
to play for a franchise like this, it's a
dream come true."
Mr. Florida Basketball in 2000,
Greene didn't duplicate his high
school success at UF, averaging just


more than 4 points per game in two
years. But he did lead the team in
steals his sophomore season, and his-
reputation as a defensive stopper fol-
lowed him to Louisiana-Lafayette.
As a second round pick, Greene's
contract was non-guaranteed, and
after he fractured his foot this sum-
mer, Greene didn't expect to receive
a contract offer.
So despite averaging just 10
points per game
this past year and
injuring his foot,
V 4, Greene said that
.- 4 the Celtics were

S his ability to play
the point at 6-
Greene foot-5.
"I'm pretty polished right now,
and I feel like I'm on the top of my
game," Greene said. "I'll basically do
whatever they need me to do to get
on the court and play."
Greene said he wasn't sure how
his career would. have turned out
had he stayed at UF, but he has no
regrets.
"I'm always a firm believer that
everything happens for a reason,"
he said. "It's the way the cards fell. I
worked hard for it."

Gators record-setting back Durrance dies at 55


* TOUCHDOWN TOMMY IS STILL
TIED FOR UF SCORING RECORD.

By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
aabramson@alligator.org

More, than 35 years after he set the
Southeastern Conference record .for touch-
downs in a season, Tommy Durrance had be-
come just a shell of the colossal running back
that instilled fear in the rest of the SEC.


But at his final team reunion this year,
Durrance was still viewed as a larger-than-life
figure to everyone that had come to know and
love the former Gators star.
"He was in bad shape, but as we were leav-
ing I walked out and tried to get his attention,"
said Ray Graves, Durrance's first coach at UF.
"I told him about one of his great runs he
made against Alabama, and he started smil-
ing. His hand came out and I shook it.
"Tommy was a winner. The players be-
lieved in him. To think he's gone is really
sad."


The player known as Touchdown Tommy
- both for his initials and a keen ability to find
his way into the end zone succumbed to a
rare neurological disease on Friday that had
plagued him since 2000. He was 55.
On Monday, hundreds of friends and fam-
ily gathered in Ormond Beach for the funeral,
but it was hardly a day of mourning. Instead,
the group spent the day reminiscing about
the man that thrilled UF football fans for
three years and, more importantly, became
a respected and beloved man in the Daytona
community.


"It was a huge tribute, a lot of people were
there to honor him and it was overwhelming
to us," Durrance's wife Jo Lynn said. "It's just
been a beautiful experience to see how many
people's lives he touched."
Former UF teammate Andy Cheney said
Durrance was always the team leader, but con-
tinued that role well past his playing career.
'"It all went back to the stature he
had as an athlete. He was such a physi-
cal specimen, he was in great physical

Quarterback Cornelius Ingram practices two weeks after playing
just one minute in the basketball team's loss to Villanova in the
NCAA Tournament. Ingram will now play football full time.


nity for the quarterback to see ac-
tion on the field last year, former
coach Ron Zook allowed Ingram
to leave the team in October and
pursue basketball,
But Ingram didn't find much
success with basketball, playing
limited minutes and never finding
a regular role with the team.
While neither Donovan nor
football coach Urban Meyer
forced Ingram to choose one sport
over the other, both made it clear
that it would be in his best interest
to concentrate on one.
Ingram could technically join
the basketball team in January, but
Donovan said he would be too far
behind to play.
Ingram has plenty of competi-
tion on the football field. Chris
Leak is the solid No. 1 starter, and
Meyer recruit Josh Portis, a true
freshman, looks to be the favorite
to secure the backup job.
Junior Gavin Dickey, more pol-
ished than Ingram after serving
as Leak's backup in 2004, is also
in the mix.
After seeing Ingram practice
just seven times, Meyer isn't sure
if the redshirt freshman will fit
into the offense. However, he
praised Ingram's athleticism.
Incoming freshman Nyan
Boateng, also a basketball and
football star in high school, is in a
similar situation and must choose
one sport over the other.
Most expect the receiver to
play football.


Alabama's media


frenzy is a must-see
W hen I informed a couple of friends that I'd be driv-

of strange names.
"You might as well drive to South Carolina and visit the
boyhood home of former president James K. Polk," one
friend said. "It just seems sort of pointless."
Welcome to the world of Southeastern Conference foot-
ball, where every year 12 coaches, 24 players and nearly
1,000 media members flock to a Wynfrey Hotel in Alabama
like it's a Grateful Dead fest or a Billy Graham tent revival.

we'll embark on 14-hour round-trip
drive to hear the SEC coaches and
players talk for a combined 18 hours over three days.
Call it absurd, but it's safe to say that if tickets were
available to the general public, UF diehard fanatics would
find it difficult to pass up this one.
Not only will Urban Meyer make his SEC debut, but Steve
Spurrier returns after an extended absence and Tennessee's
Philip Fulmer returns after an Alabama arrest warrant made
the big fella noticeably non-present last year.
And you thought Jesse Palmer knew drama.
Here's the top five things we'll be looking for in
Birmingham:
1. How many times will Meyer be asked if Chris Leak can
run Urban's offense or if the spread offense can work in the
SEC? My guess is at least five variations of those questions
will be posed. (Luckily for Leak, Mike Degory and Jarvis
Herring are the only two UF players attending).
