THE LEADERS OF UF
Tim Casey / Alligator Staff
UF President Bernie Machen and Student Body President Joe Goldberg lead more than 50,000
students, staff and faculty members. Goldberg took office in May with a brand-new staff; Machen
has spent part of his 19 months at UF learning his way around the university.
has new faces
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Walking back to his office after a
morning photo shoot, UF President
Bernie Machen admits that even he was
a little overwhelmed by the size of the
university he was elected to lead nearly
two years ago.
"This is by far the biggest university
that I've ever been around," Machen
said. "It takes some getting used to."
Machen, the former president of the
University of Utah, recommended new
students pound the pavement with a
map and enough time to figure out their
way around UF.
After having "survived" at UF for 19
months, as he jokingly puts it, Machen
said he has truly begun to understand
His goal for UF one year from now is
on track, with plans to make the univer-
sity a Top 10 public research institution:
continued academic improvement,
more students graduating on time and
increased faculty and staff support.
To all students, Machen has a mes-
sage: get involved on campus.
"They're obviously talented aca-
demically," Machen said, but added
that it's what students do outside of
class that's important.
With more than 700 organizations on
campus, students have the opportunity
to connect with each other through al-
most any interest or hobby.
Soon, campus sidewalks will swell
with the familiar faces of returning
students and the scurrying bodies of
In much the same way, UF's admin-
istration embodies a mix of veteran
employees and new leaders.
Since Machen's hiring, six new vice
presidents have been hired in a reorga-
nization of UF's leadership, including
Janie Fouke, UF's new provost and
senior vice president.
"I think, for the most part, a blend
of new and continuing is the ideal situ-
ation," Machen said. "We have some

Goldberg is a member of the
Black Student Union, Hispanic
Student Association, Pride
Student and the Jewish
Government Student Union.
"I love talk-
ing to students," he said. "You
don't have to be black to be a
member of the Black Student
Union. The diversity on our cam-
pus is just tremendous."
Goldberg, a Miami native, said
the key to success in college is learn-
ing how to manage one's interests.
"Think about what you enjoy,"
he said. "The best thing to do is try
to find somebody you can relate to.
Find what your passion is and then
run wild with it."
He said getting involved allows
students to make UF cozy despite
its 1,965-acre size and 48,000-strong
"I think that it's important to
get involved in something extra-
curricular," he said. "We're always
looking for new students to get

So it's the first day of the rest of your life, eh?
Or not. College strikes people in different ways.
Whether you're a 16-year-old prodigy or an 80-year-
old transfer student who's searching nobly for that
elusive bachelor's degree, or anywhere in between, we
at the Independent Florida Alligator welcome you to
There's a lot to enjoy about our fair city, but also more
than a few traps for anyone new to the way things work.
As anyone who's caroused downtown for the first time

lessons of college the hard way.
Most of us have learned the hard way, so in an effort to
help you out on this new journey, the Alligator proudly
Tips & Tricks
It's hard to expect new folks in town to have much im-
pact on their academic life, but here's a big TIP: Don't go
with the flow.
Impress yourself on professors, administrators, any-
one who might have a say in your future here. Always
be polite with the employees in your college. They have a
greater ability to help you along than they might lead you
And don't be afraid to speak up if a class appears full or
you don't see credits you should have on your transcript.
Students who are proactive about their education come
out best in the end.
There's a large number of locals here who want nothing
more than to ram some culture down your throat. Our TIP:
Take them up on it once in a while.
Gainesville has world-class museums, theatres and
other outlets of intellectual curiosity. Student Government
organizations bring interesting speakers every week,
along with the occasional large-scale concert.
You already pay for some of this culture as a part of
tuition. So it's worth it for you to take a look.
Speaking of taking a look, here's an important TRICK
for living in Gainesville: Take a ride around town.
If you don't have a car, find someone who does and
make an afternoon of exploring the city.
There's a great deal of variety among different stores
and venues in town and it's always good to shop around.
Especially don't think that campus stores always offer
Also, it'll get more difficult to spend time searching for
a specific place once the semester starts.
A TIP for those who don't like surprises, especially if
you live off campus: Don't rush into signing or paying for
Great deals don't always stay great by the time you get
home. And when the apartment complex managers sug-
gest you fill out your move-in form, take the time to do it.
You'll thank yourself at the end of the year, when you're
not hit by charges you could have avoided.
And perhaps the ultimate survival TRICK: Take time to
We have football galore on weekends during the Fall,
and Meyermania will push that to new heights.
Better yet, take a day and go to Orlando ride
some roller coasters and take your mind off school.
One of the greatest advantages to Gainesville is its surpris-
ingly central location for a city in Florida. Don't let that go
Follow these basic steps, and we're pretty sure your
adjustment to this college town will go a lot smoother.
You go, Gator.

Big-city fast food leads to revelation
since I began college, one of the things I miss the most
about home and like the best about going back is the
great food. Oh yeah, and seeing the people who gave
birth to me, that too.
As college students, we far too often accept the status
quo of quick, cheap and easy.. .food that is. Unfortunately,
more often than not, this doesn't equate with good,
So when I got off the plane in New York for my grand-
parents' 65th wedding anniversary last week, I was more
than happy to be greeted at my aunt's house by 10 chick-
ens, a giant ham, five different types of rice and a salmon
My grandparents' big fat Jewish wedding anniversary
could have given the similarly titled movie a run for its
A few days later I continued the food fiesta in New
York City after reacclimatizing myself to the Big Apple.
"Hello, homeless-dude-sleeping-on-the-bench. How's
it going, hipster-20-something-New Yorker. Nice to see
you again, guy-giving-me-the-finger."
Ah yes: I was home, and home equals good food.
Now, good food according to my grandmother usually
means a meal at one of the city's famous eateries, so when
we approached what appeared to be a fast-food restau-
rant, I was surprised to say the least.
However, I would soon discover that Better Burger was
no measly fast-food joint and that its burgers were indeed
better than "the big boys."
My burger consisted of 1/3 lb antibiotic-and-hormone-
free organic beef cooked to my liking on an all-natural ses-
ame-seed wheat bun with organic white cheddar cheese,
lettuce and tomato.
The combo meal included my choice of bottled water
Aaron Blye instead of soda and a side of organic
Blye's Eyes Better Fries spritzed with olive oil
email@example.com and air-baked, not fried.
I've always been skeptical of
meals out of a tree-hugging hippie
cookbook, but it was probably the best-tasting fast food
I've ever had, and it was only about $2 more than a com-
parable meal at McDonald's.
Unfortunately, I couldn't convince the owner to expand
outside of NYC and set up shop in Gainesville, but I did
come to an important realization.
Although Better Burger hasn't made it to Gainesville
yet, college students have an alternate means to eat quick,
cheap and healthy.
Looking around campus I think we can all agree the
University of Florida has one of the best student bodies in
the nation -but roughly 60 percent of Americans are either
overweight or obese, and there isn't a college student in
America who hasn't heard of the freshman 15.
I know you might think your cooking skills are limited
to grilling chicken on the George Foreman grill, but cook-
ing is as easy as following directions and it's cheap.
If you can color inside the lines, you can make chicken
parmigiana, with a little bit of practice.
And if you're eating cheap pizza topped with sausage
that physically resembles hamster poop or a sandwich,
possibly served somewhere on campus, that consists of
reflective roast beef or gelatinous turkey meat, then you
might want to take those items off your personal menu.
Instead of spending your hard-earned dollars on
unhealthy junk food, take to the kitchen or check out
some of the great local- restaurants scattered throughout

UF campus legends have developed over a century
By DIANA MAZZELLA
Alligator Contributing Writer
With almost 100 years of history, UF's
campus combines diverse and sometimes
avant-garde architecture with distinctive
art and wild stories.
One of the more recognizable but
lesser-known structures on campus is
Alachua, or, as it is more widely called,
the "French Fries." The yellow-painted
aluminum sculpture of self-supporting
rectangular tubes stands just west of the
Marston Science Library.
UF College of Fine Arts spokeswoman
Sarah McNeill said she thought the struc-
ture got its nickname soon after it was
built in 1988 by sculptor John Henry as
a commission by the Florida Board of
Regents, the longtime governing body of
the state university system.
Century Tower was built in 1953 to com-
memorate the 100th anniversary of the
university and was dedicated to UF stu-
dents killed in World War I and II.
Its architecture landed a portion of campus'
north side on the National Register of Historic
Places. Professor Susan Tate with the College
of Design, Construction and Planning said it
was "unusual" to have a part of a major public
university listed on the register.
The "collegiate gothic" style of red
bricks and vaulted entrances was used
with the first buildings, the
On now-residential Buckman
CampUS and Thomas halls, and other
earlier buildings, she said.
Newer buildings present, if not always
the form, then new interpretations of that
Contrary to what some may say, how-
ever, Tate said it is not likely the interlock-
ing Thomas, Fletcher and Sledd halls in
the historic district were meant to form a
As with any proper place of history,
UF's campus also has its share of leg-
ends, including the ghost of Old Steve
When radiators inside Thomas Hall rat-
tled, students attributed it to the ghost of
the cook who worked there when Thomas
and Buckman housed all university fa-
cilities, even the cafeteria, University
Archivist Carl Van Ness said.
Freshmen should also be thankful that
certain "hazing" rituals have fallen by the
When the newest underclassmen came
to UF in the days before coeducation,
they were told by their elders to speak to
everyone, walk around the Plaza of the
Americas rather than through it and wear
beanies until the end of the Fall semester
unless they performed certain rituals, Van
One ritual included defeating the
sophomores at a game of capture the flag.
Years later, a way to lose the beanie was

ciation magazine UF Today, Gatorade was
invented at UF in 1965 because football
players could not practice sufficiently in
the Florida heat.
East of Turlington Plaza stands Century
Tower, built to commemorate the UF alumni
who took part in both World Wars, dedicated
on the 100th anniversary of the founding of
the college that became UF, Tate said.
Graduate instructor Danielle Dirks said
she remembers a story about the tower
when she first came as an undergraduate
to UF. Supposedly, a brick would fall from
the tower for every virgin who graduated
But the Spring 2002 edition of Orange
and Blue Online carries another, more
chilling story about rumors of at least one
suicide off one of the two Beaty Towers,
the twin apartment-style residences on the
south side of campus.
Tom Petty allegedly wrote the song
"American Girl" because of this suicide,
but he has not confirmed it, according to
Catrice Ackerman, a desk assistant at
the residence hall, said most of the win-
dows of the towers cannot be opened,
though she had heard a story involving
a girl who committed suicide because she
received a bad grade.
Students can take this piece of advice
from the 1932-33 version of the "F Book,"
an old university student handbook: "You
can get a lot of fun out of being a freshman
if you but will."

Take the Florida Picaroons, a social

year. Officers go by nautical titles such
as admiral and commodore, according
-to the club's Web site.
Club President Carlo Petrillo
said he hopes the group eventu-
ally launches a bottle-boat regatta,
in which teams would compete by
building boats out of milk jugs. Any
funds the group raises would go to
ocean-preservation organizations, and
the club plans to take part in road and
other nature clean-ups.
Florida Fencing has about 40 mem-
bers, though it can swell to more than
100 at each year's first meeting, last
year's president Kelly Crandall said.
Students can compete or just practice
as a recreational member.
As students become more involved,
they are encouraged to purchase their
own equipment, which costs about
$200 for a basic set, Crandall said, as
sports clubs can't charge participants

New students get stiffed
* OUT-OF-STATE TUITION IS ESPE-
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Being new to UF will be slightly more
expensive in the Fall due to tuition criteria
changes based on a student's status as "new"
or "continuing" that now help determine how
much he or she pays.
Students already pay different tuition rates
as undergraduates and graduates as well as
Florida residents versus out-of-state students,
but their time or lack thereof spent at UF
now too will factor into the equation.
"This is a first time ever," said Stuart
Hoskins, senior associate controller at UF.
He said officials at the Office of the
University Registrar and the Office of the
Provost largely-were behind the changes.
A memo released July 15 listed new students
as either undergraduates starting in Fall, gradu-
ate students seeking new degrees, non-military
students re-enrolling after more than two semes-
ters and non-degree seeking students.
Continuing students must have been ad-
mitted before Fall 2005 and enrolled in either
Spring or Summer 2005.
Hoskins estimated UF received about $197
million in tuition from its 48,000 students for
the fiscal year ending June 30, meaning the av-
erage student pays about $4,100 per year.
The biggest increases in tuition occurred in
graduate professional programs such as medi-
cal, dental and veterinary medicine, where new
students will pay hundreds of dollars more
than continuing students.
Out-of-state tuition for dental students will
cost an estimated $43,000, about $9,000 more
than last year.
Student Medical and veterinary medi-
Life cine tuition will see increases in
the thousands of dollars.
Both new and continuing Florida residents
will pay $103.12 per undergraduate credit hour
- a 4.7-percent increase from last year.
However, rrew non-residents will pay more
than $574 per undergraduate credit hour,
which is about $20 more than their continuing
counterparts and almost $50 more than the
same students paid last year.
Florida residents entering graduate school
at UF will pay $259.75 or about 8 percent more
than those already enrolled, who will pay
$239.59 per credit hour.
New and continuing out-of-state graduate
students both will pay about $890 per credit.
Halls sport new looks
By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Murphree Hall will open its doors
to residents once again this Fall after
enduring $10 million in renovations.
The residence hall, which has been
partially closed for more than a year,
has new furniture, new paint, updated
equipment and a virtual necessity in
Second-year engineering student
Melissa Ackert said the renovations
helped persuade her and her room-
mate to leave Broward Hall and its
air-conditioning window units for
"We heard they got central A/C put
in, and that was a big factor," she said.
The project was the largest, but by
no means the only remodeling that
took place under the UF Department
of Housing & Residence Education in
preparation for the new school year.
"We've done thousands of renova-
tions," said Sharon Blansett, assistant
director of housing.
Reid Hall received new windows
and sprinklers and will offer practice
rooms for artists from the College of
S North Hall also

UF housing director Blansett also an-
nounced an upgrade
in residence hall cable television to
about 70 channels of digital TV.

ship with Cox Communications- also
will allow students to order services
like Pay-Per-View for themselves with-
out charging their roommates.

There's lots to do and explore right here at UF
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Who needs downtown
Gainesville, with its watered-down
liquor and too-loud music? There's
enough, clean fun on campus to
make forgoing hedonism tempting.
For starters, there is that house
full of 100,000 bats.
It turns out bats just live in caves
because they can't afford real estate.
Constructed in 1991, the St. Lucie
Bat House at UF accommodates
bats displaced from the former dark
alcoves of the track and tennis stadi-
ums: It is located on the west side of

"People go and they're like,

Across the street are trails that
wind through the wooded wilder-
ness around Lake Alice, one of sev-
eral such areas throughout campus.
Graduate research assistant Joanna
Reilly-Brown attributed this to
Gainesville's oasis-like location.
"It's a big city in the middle of
the country," said Reilly-Brown, a
lifelong Gainesville resident.

.Some see them as their best
friends; others don't know about
them or simply don't care.
But the decisions of Gainesville's
seven commissioners affect every-
one in this city.
Among other things, they are
in charge of setting the tax rate on
properties that determines rent,
passing the city's fiscal budget for
everything from roads to festivals
and approving ordinances and reso-
lutions, like the 1999 anti-rave law
that set the closing time for bars and
clubs at 2 a.m.
Of the seven commissioners,
four are elected by their respec-
tive districts into which the city
is divided. As the population of
Gainesville boomed, two at-large
commissioners elected by the entire
city were appointed. The mayor is
the commission's seventh member.
The four commissioners by
district are Chuck Chestnut (1), Ed
Braddy (2), Jack Donovan (3) and
Craig Lowe (4). The two commis-
sioners elected at-large are Warren
Nielsen and Rick Bryant.
Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan ran for
her post in 2004 after serving as a
city commissioner for six years.
Since her election, Hanrahan has
been working toward maintaining
and improving the quality of life in
Gainesville by creating beautifica-
tion, recreation and redevelopment
programs to make the city more
attractive for students, professors
and visitors, programs she plans to
continue, she said.
She is also an .id \:caef ineifc reas-

Donovan, the newest commis-
Ssioner after defeating incumbent
Tony Domenech in an April runoff
election, said he believes that initia-
tives to discourage binge drinking
are necessary and advocates unifica-
tion within the city.
Lowe's focus is on the environ-
ment, minority rights and redevel-
opment programs and he said he
wants his incumbents to be more
aware of the local government.

a recipient of two Bronze Stars in

Bring on the grub: Many options for hungry students
By STEPHANIE GARRY
.Alligator Staff Writer
With more than 25 places to eat on cam-
pus, it's no mystery as to where that fabled
freshman 15 comes from.
First-time Gators, with the newfound
freedom of declining balance in hand, find
themselves in a fast-food heaven to trump
even the best-endowed interstate exit.
The only hitch is that you have to use
cash or declining balance on your Gator 1
Card and there are no free refills.
In the Reitz Union, you'll find Wendy's,
Taco Bell, Subway and hordes of people dur-
ing lunch hour. There's also home cooking at
Home Zone, Italian at Capeesh, ice cream,
coffee and a Pan-Asian noodle and sushi bar.
The student union is not only the most
popular on-campus eatery, but also has
the best hours. Wendy's and Subway are
almost always open when you need them.
If you prefer to "eat mor chikin," walk
across the Reitz Union lawn to the Hub,
the old bookstore that's awaiting a make-
over to become a technology lab. There
you'll find Chick-fil-A, $4 smoothies from
Zia Juice and Einstein Bros. Bagels.
The small eating area in the Hub turns
into a feeding frenzy around lunch, so
if your appetite's better when the line's
short and the volume's lower, check out
the Racquet Club on Fletcher Drive. Here
you'll find a mini Burger King, coffee, a
Boar's Head deli, sushi, salad and deli-
cious cheesesteak sandwiches.
This is also home to the Gator Dining
Services office, where students can manage
their declining balance or meal plan ac-
Fast food chains aren't the only popular
option for freshmen. Many newcomers, es-
pecially those living close to the two dining
centers near Broward Hall and the Tolbert
Area, buy meal plans for their first year.
The unlimited plan offers a 54-percent
discount on the normal price of eating at
a dining center, but that's only if you eat
four meals a day, according to a Gator
The plans are not right for everyone,
fitting big eaters best, and students should
consider taking advantage of the 10-day
grace period beginning Aug. 16 to see
if their meal plans work for
Life Some students regret their
meal plan choice because they
find they don't use all of their weekly meals
and end up paying for food they didn't want
or didn't eat.
Lydia Brooks, a fifth-year political sci-
ence major, advised freshmen to opt for
declining balance instead of the meal plan.
She would have had to eat at least 10 or
14 meals a week to get her most out of the
$1,200 or $1,400 those plans cost, she wrote
in an e-mail.
"I just didn't want to eat that much
food, that often," Brooks wrote. "Do you
know how many Subway sandwiches or
Java City cappuccinos I could have got-
ten for that? I was furious when I realized
what a waste of money it was."
Twelve hundred dollars would buy
roughly 300 6-inch subs or 400 cappuc-
Students can transfer the value of their
meal plan into a declining balance ac-
count during the grace period in the Gator
Dining Services office.

Subway employee Courtney Hill prepares a sandwich in the Reitz Union Food Court
on Wednesday. During the Fall and Spring semesters, Subway constantly has a line of
customers extending outside the cafeteria.
If the traditional option of paying $6
a meal for all-you-can-eat buffets or fried
chicken doesn't fit your fancy, the UF
campus almost always has a solution for
the stingy or resourceful student. Veteran

joy UF's green spaces or bring leftovers
from home and heat them up in the micro-

Starving students should keep an eye

Parking problems grow during busy Fall semester
* UF HAS 24,000 SPACES TO SERVE
ALMOST 70,000 DAILY VISITORS.
By DAVID COHEN
There just isn't enough Swamp for every
Gator to claim territory at the same time.
Approximately 48,000 students and 11,000
faculty members at UF must share 24,000 park-
ing spaces in 13 garages. And the number of
slots is not likely to rise for the next three years.
Assistant Vice President for Administration
and Finance Bob Miller said that while UF's
master plan calls for new parking garages,
UF's Transportation and Parking division will
not be able to afford them until 2007-08.
"We are not in any stage where we're get-
ting ready to build one," he said. "We don't get
any state money for parking."
Miller said on any given day during the Fall
and Spring, there are between 65,000-70,000
students, faculty, staff and guests on campus,
including special events and Shands at UF.
"Amazingly enough there is always stu-
dent parking places," he said. "They might
not be where students would want them to be.
Students don't come to campus every day, and
when they do come, they don't leave their car
here all day."
Students must purchase a decal to park
legally on campus. In October 2003,3,558 Red
3 decals, which are for on-campus students
who have fewer than 50 credits, were sold for
3,101 All Red or All Decal spaces, according to
In the same period, Red 1 decals, which are
available to students living on campus who
have completed at least 60 credit hours, were
oversold by 106 percent. For 800 Red-desig-
nated spaces, 1,653 decals were in effect.
Commuter decals,. which are sold to off-
campus students with 110 credits, fared worse
at an oversell rate of 125 percent.
"If you want a decal, we'll sell you a decal,"
Student decals cost $98 annually or $49
per semester, except for medical students and.
Miller said freshmen living off campus
may be more likely to break the guidelines.
"If they give themselves enough time, it's
not inevitable that a freshman gets a parking
ticket," he said. "A number do
Student because they don't plot out their
ITfe route. With proper planning, they
can avoid any tickets."
Parking citations are typically $20 and go
into a Student Traffic Court fund, which aids
in constructing more sidewalks, lighting and
other necessities around campus.
Miller said.students need to recognize that
Fall is more congested than Summer.
"The first few weeks are hectic for fresh-
men," he said. "You need to be prepared to
leave earlier and to schedule yourself a little
extra time. You might add 30-40 percent on
that time in the beginning of Fall because it's
going to be a lot busier."
Miller said despite the traffic, there is a solu-
tion Gainesville's Regional Transit System.
"I think that if you live off campus, there's
a bus stop close by and an RTS service that is
going to get you to campus," he said.
Gainesville's mass-transit- system is the
fourth largest city transportation network
in Florida. The extensive campus service is
funded by the Transportation Fee, which is
included in tuition. Students may ride RTS
buses throughout Gainesville for "free" by
presenting their Gator 1.
Student Body President Joe Goldberg lived
in Rawlings Hall when he was a freshman in.
Fall 2002, and during that time he said it was
difficult to park his car on campus.
"When I moved off campus, I started using
the bus more and more," he said.
SBut he added, "I don't think anyone will
ever'be satisfied with the system. Parking is
always going to be an issue here."

Like many other Florida high
school seniors, Jorie Scholnik often
felt pressured by college stress and
was anxious to receive her admis-
sion decisions from several schools.
Instead of waiting by her mail-

Festa said she uses her MP3 player about three times
a week but will use it more now that she is downloading
audio files from UF.
Festa hopes the podcasting trend will spread to other
areas of UF.
"I think it would be great to see it in the classrooms,"
Orlando said UF is the first state university in Florida
to offer podcasting.
In the Fall, the weekly updates also will be posted
as audio files, he said. The audio files can be accessed
for free by anyone with a computer and MP3 player, he

$129.35 at T.I.S. College Bookstore.
Amazon.com sells the book for $80

to ship in one to two business days.
Stober recommended buying the
international editions of textbooks,
which are illegal to sell in bookstores
but can be found online at sites like
Amazon.com and eBay's Half.com.
He said these editions cost half as
much as the standard copies.
Resources like these are especial-
ly helpful to hard-science majors,
who typically spend hundreds of
dollars per semester. Some liberal

get by with less than $100.
Matt Chamoff, a public relations

Independent report gives answers to Greek issues
By KYLIE CRAIG
Freshmen should expect an improved Greek
"community" at UF this Fall thanks to a nearly
$5,000 analysis of UF's Greek system commis-
sioned by the Division of Student Affairs.
Vice President of Student Affairs Patricia
Telles-Irvin said she decided UF's Greek sys-
tem needed a closer look because of "concerns
about some of the behaviors I had seen and
behaviors that had come to my attention."
"I wanted to better understand what was
going on," Telles-Irvin said.
According to the analysis, "what was going
on" were issues including safety problems in
chapter houses, a lack of development in pub-
lic relations and problems with determining .
Homecoming pairings of chapters.
Ron Binder and his assistant, Damien
Duchamp, of Bowling Green State University
were brought to UF to conduct the analysis.
Binder has more than 20 years' experience
with Greek affairs.
"These are experts in the field," Telles-Irvin
said. "They've seen the best, and they've seen
the worst, and I wanted them to give us a
gauge to where we are because we want to
be the best."
Binder said he found that everyone within
the Greek community realized there were ar-
eas in need of change and included 15 recom-
mendations for improvement in his analysis.
Along with Duchamp, he met with focus
groups comprised of UF faculty and members
of the Greek community.
One of the most pressing issues Binder said
he found was the condition of Greek housing.
He said safety in the house was the biggest
concern, and "the quality of housing was not
good and, in some cases, incredibly poor."
"These are experts in the field.
They've seen the best, and they've
seen.the worst, and I wanted them
to give us a gauge to where we are
because we want to be the best."
vice president of student affairs
The analysis referred to some chapter
houses as "inadequate, unsafe, out-of-date and
generally unattractive with few exceptions."
Another topic arising among the focus
groups was the Greeks' relationship with the
Alligator and the boycott launched by fraterni-
ties and sororities against the paper to counter
what they perceived as mainly negative press.
The analysis stated that, "By their own ad-
mission, the strategy has been largely unsuc-
cessful," adding "there is a disproportionate
amount of attention given to the negative and
less to the positive" coverage.
Anthony Crenshaw, assistant director of
the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Affairs,
said some of the recommendations, including
the relocation of the Office of Fraternity and
Sorority Affairs, were implemented before the
community analysis was completed.
He said the key to the Greek community's
success will be to re-engage alumni.
"Our office along with the Office of Student
Affairs is putting together a three-year strate-
gic plan," he said. "We'll break the report up
and look over it for the next three years."
Crenshaw and Telles-Irvin both said they
look forward to an improved community as a
result of the study.
"I know the Greeks play a critical role at the
university," Telles-Irvin said. "We need to find
better ways to facilitate their contributions."
National Pan-Hellenic and Multicultural Greek councils recruit outside of Rush
RUSH, from page 10
students must decide which orga-
nization they would like to join and
begin the new-member process.
For the nearly 1,200 women at UF
deciding to take part in Panhellenic
recruitment week, the process is
There are four rounds of "par-
ties," required meet-and-greets be-
tween potential and current sorority
members at the chapter houses.
The first round is the most casual.
Students visit all 16 chapter houses
and after each round rank the chap-
ter houses by preference.
The following day they are
given a schedule telling them which
houses to visit.
By the fourth round, or the "pref-
erence round," students will visit
only three houses for one hour each.
Bids are given the following day.
PC Membership Vice President
Courtney Weir said one of the main
benefits of joining a sorority is "the
true sense of a home away from
home for first-time students."
Both Weir and Bucciarelli empha-
sized that students can withdraw at
any time during the process.
"One could go through the
whole week, receive a bid from all 24
chapters, decide that Greek life isn't
for him and simply walk
Greek away," Bucciarelli said.
Life Freshman Adam
Lieberman, 19, said he
plans to rush this Fall in part because
he's hoping to make good friends.
"It seems at UF, especially, being
in the Greek scene is definitely the
way to go," he said. "More of the
social scene is in the Greek life."
Lieberman said he isn't too wor-
ried about hazing rumors he's heard.
"I've seen friends go through it,
and if they can do it, I can," he said.
IFC spokesman Jeremy Martin
said hazing won't be tolerated.
"When I went through the new-
member education process, I would
have been comfortable filming the
entire thing and having my mom
watch everything I did. My guess
is that many people feel the same
way," Martin said.
UF's two other Greek councils,
the National Pan-Hellenic Council
and the Multicultural Greek Council,
recruit members throughout the year
on a chapter-by-chapter basis.
For NPHC there is a period be-
ginning in September when some of
the recruitment takes place. But the
organizations can decide at which
times of the year they want to take
in new members.
The chapters of MGC are fea-
tured in a showcase, in which each
gives out information on its indi-
vidual recruitment process..
Full details can be found on each
of the councils' UF Web sites.
Students accepting bids will
begin the 10-week new-member
process known as pledging directly
following recruitment week.
It's a little something we like to call,
"cheaper used textbooks."

Test-tube IQ: UF leads the way in stem-cell research
Editor's note: This story origi-
nally appeared in the Alligator
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF scientists have been in
the national spotlight since find-
ing a new way of watching and
controlling stem cells from a
rodent's brain until the cells
become specialized a new
method that mimics the natural
production of human brain cells.
"We used bits and pieces of differ-
ent protocols to come up with the
one that would let us see the repro-
duction of cells and control their
growth," said Dennis A. Steindler,
executive director of the Evelyn
F. and William L. McKnight Brain
Researchers have been looking
for a method, which would induce
brain stem cells to produce special-
ized cells that would cure diseases,
such as Parkinson's disease or
epilepsy, for more than 50 years,
And scientists from UF's
Program in Stem Cell Biology and
Regenerative Medicine believe that
this method could be the one.
Stem cells are unspecialized cells
that can replicate many times over
and become another type of cell
with a specialized function, such as
a red blood cell or muscle cell.
UF scientists used new condi-
tions to treat the rodent stem brain

days old. Cells that are green with a slight tint of red are about to make the transition into neurons.
cells and exposed them to a growth
factor, Steindler said.
After the cells were exposed to
that factor, it was taken away, and
the cells were directed toward the
new desired lineages.
UF scientists were able to watch
the process step by step thanks
to a special microscope that took
pictures of the cells every five min-
utes, which were later compiled
into a short film.
"For the first time scientists
were able to watch the cells
give life to new daughter cells,"
The study was published in a
recent issue of "Proceedings of the
National Academy of Sciences."
If this method can be dupli-
cated with human brain stem cells,
scientists could use it to screen for
drugs that would stimulate the
brain stem cells to produce special-
ized cells needed to cure diseases,
As a second alternative, scien-
tists could also generate specialized
cells in culture dishes and transport
them into the brain, he said.
For example, Parkinson's dis-
ease occurs when the brain cells
called substantial nigra begin to
malfunction and eventually die.
In the case of Parkinson's
disease, scientists could use the
method to screen for drugs that
would stimulate brain cells to cre-
ate more substantial nigra or they
could generate substantial nigra in
culture dishes and transport them
to the brain.
Substantia nigra cells are im-
portant because they produce do-
pamine, a chemical substance that
transmits nerve impulses to parts
of the brain that control movement
initiation and coordination.
Without substantial nigra, the
brain produces less dopamine, and
as a result, people with Parkinson's
disease begin to experience symp-
toms that might include tremor,
rigidity, delayed movements or im-
paired balance and coordination.
Steindler said that preliminary
research with human brain cells
has already been done.
"It looks encouraging," he said.
"We are pretty confident that this

A slice of life: Editors review Gainesville's pizza
By MIKE GIMIGNANI
and EVA KIS
Pizza. It's a staple for any well-rounded
college student forgive the pun.
Our search for the best cheese-and-toma-
to pie began as a fun service for this newspa-
per, a sort of introduction to the editors.
Ten days and untold thousands of calories
later, it became a quest. Needless to say, while
rating Gainesville's pizza we may have eaten
our quota of the stuff for a decade or two.
But we're ready to share our findings, the
best and the rest of local slices. While by no
means all the pizza options in town, we feel.
this list covers the prominent ones.
We rated the pies on a number of basic
factors, including sauce character, cheese
compatibility, crust and overall taste.
A couple of additional categories we in-
cluded on the facing page are grease levels,
because some people like grease and others
don't, and our "morning-after factor," the
tastiness of the pizza after spending several
hours on our patented apartment kitchen
That's right: We ate pizza for breakfast,
The results are available on the next page,
but here's our summary of pizza in town:
The menu says "the difference between
a good meal and a
z'---i-y i-i." really great meal is
about an hour wait,"
and they mean it. But if you've got a long
lunch break, this place is worth the drive,
the wait and the price.
Quick service when the line isn't out the
-M3 ik_ s doors during rush times, the
izza .has a generous crust
with a thin body, and for des-
\ sert an assortment of non-tra-
.u.... ditional treats and teas. All the
salads come with two rolls, which are thick
and best eaten pulled apart and dipped in
either garlic butter or the house marinara.
Sometimes, a slice is not just a slice. Like
when it's the size of most others' small piz-
zas. Seriously, these things
are big enough to give men
an inferiority complex and

tite. The pies are New York
through and through, from the expert hand-
tossing there's probably a degree require-
ment for handling 30-inch pizzas to the
crispy, attitude-laden final product.
Best of the chains, no contest. They're also
not afraid to crank up the oven and brown
the cheese a bit without mak-
,f .ing the dough unchewably
^ ^ ~tough, a rarity among all the
~ '-' places we tried. The cheese
and sauce complemented
each other nicely, the dough
wasn't too much or thin, and for the price,
it can't be beat.
Never having heard of this place was
the first of the surprises, as both the pizza
and atmosphere are delightfully New York.
The pizza came out fast, though a little sus-
piciously so, but it was a good balance of all
the essentials, plus a crispy crust that was
unusual but not unenjoyable.

vey it, but if you're a crust snob, you'll

The cheese and/or sauce
packed a surprising kick, so the free drink

handy. Though greasier than some, it would

such window-service places anywhere.

the box's proclamation
that our "pizza experience was managed by
Christ," the package deal tastes a bit dishonest
at first. However, it's remarkably tasty luke-
warm and day-old.

taking occasional nibbles of their slices, so
what do we know?
Though the pizza looks and tastes just the
sort one would expect off the conveyor belt
at the end of a factory assem-
bly line, the breadsticks are
outrageously good. Sprinkled
with Parmesan cheese, they're

to the pizza.
The Pokey Stix are worth the trip and are

SANTA FE COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Parking decals tip of the iceberg of new agenda
By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Contributing Writer
Xavier Boada finished high school in May
with one.thing clear in his mind Santa Fe
Boada, an 18-year-old freshman from
Miami, wants to get an associate's degree in
criminology from SFCC, transfer to UF in two
years and eventually go to law school.
"I came to Gainesville because Santa Fe is a
good college and because I want to go to UF,"
Like Boada, about 40 percent of SFCC's
new students come from counties other than
Alachua and Bradford, with most of them
hailing from South Florida.
But it is no coincidence they choose SFCC
- many use it as a stepping stone to get to
UF, since about 60 percent of SFCC students
who decide to continue their education
in a four-year university attend UF, said
SFCC's Institutional Research and Planning
Coordinator Jaime Castro.
SFCC Interim Vice President of Academic
Affairs Anne Kress said although SFCC and
UF have no formal academic agreements, both
institutions have a long-standing relationship
"driven by the, fact that the vast majority of
SFCC students want to attend UF."
For example, she said, the institutions' cur-
ricula are compatible so students don't have
problems if they decide to transfer to UF, and
UF advisers go to SFCC at least once a year to
make sure students there are on track to get
But administrators are not the only ones
looking after SFCC students.
With only a couple of months in office,
SFCC Student Body President Alan Rezaei
"Most students won't feel that it is
necessary to pay for a decal, but it
is a safety-and-fair issue."
SFCC student body president
said he wants to alleviate students' biggest
SFCC is trying to institute a new policy of
parking decals, an idea Rezaei supports.
He said because most students do not reg-
ister their cars under their name, police cannot
track the people who park illegally or cause ac-
cidents. With the decals police would be able to
hold accountable those who park at SFCC.
"Most students won't feel that it is neces-
sary to pay for a decal, but it is a safety-and-
fair issue," he said.
The proposal is still being developed and
revised, he added, and the college committee
in charge is looking into what kind of decals
would be instituted. Students should have an
answer when the committee votes in early
Rezaei also plans to continue "The Intern,"
a six-week long competition that started last
year and was inspired by Donald Trump's hit
TV show "The Apprentice."
Eight students competed in the first
contest in community-based tasks for an
internship with Gainesville Mayor Pegeen
And although this year students might
compete again for an internship with
Hanrahan, Rezaei said he wants to expand
the program perhaps getting students to
compete for an internship with the governor
in the future.
Not all student honor societies are created equal
* SOME GROUPS HAVE DE-
By CAITLIN HARRIS
Alligator Contributing Writer
Getting into some honor societies
may not be such an honor.
Students at UF receive invita-
tions to numerous honor societies
every year. Some of these societies
exist to honor and recognize hard-
working students, while others are
developed to con students out of
The difference between the two
may be hard to recognize, said
Jeanna Mastrodicasa, associate di-
rector of the Honors Program at UF.
There have been incidents in the
past involving fraudulent honor
societies on UF's campus, she said.
Students need to be wary of all or-
A few years ago, Mastrodicasa
said she attended a conference
where a presentation was given
on fake honor societies. A speaker
talked about a UF fraternity member
who bought names and addresses of
fellow students from his fraternity
He sent out fake letters inviting
students to join a nonexistent honor
society, she said. In exchange for
money, these students were prom-
ised induction into the fake society.
"It's a pure scam," Mastrodicasa
said. "If it seems too good to be true,
it probably is."
Students should take precau-
tions, she said. The first thing to
check is the history of the society
and when it was founded. Societies
founded within the last 10 years
probably are not very
Life Students also need
to look at the admis-
sion criteria, she said. Some of these
honor societies are designed to fill
spots on a resume, but the truly le-
gitimate ones have difficult criteria
for students to meet.
A 3.2 or 3.3 grade point average
is the minimum for acceptance into
legitimate honor societies, she said.
Anything lower usually means it is
just a recognition society.
Credible honor societies also
have extensive Web sites, she said.
Students should visit the site and
look for contact information, a
national office and headquarters,
initiation fees and chapter charter
policies and procedures.
To deal with the increase in
fraudulent honor societies, the
Honors Program at UF has part-
nered with the Office of Student
Activities to help keep students
informed and aware, she said.
There are several links from
the Honors Program Web site,
www.honors.ufl.edu, that detail
the criteria honor societies must
meet before they are nationally ac-
"There has been a huge increase
in the number of groups that seem
to be more profit-oriented than in-
terested in honoring students," said
Chris Cupoli, assistant director of
student involvement at UF
Last year, a fraudulent organiza-
tion was formed for this purpose, he
said. It claimed to have a chapter
at UF and provided a Web site that
misrepresented a relationship with
"I think there are very few
groups that add significant value to
a resume," he-said. "Students need
to do their homework."

only USDA-certified organic roaster in Florida.
Even with the coffeehouse not yet open, business
has been growing at the small roasting company.
"We already can't keep the free sample pot full
because so many people come to just hang out and
drink coffee already," said owner Nora Edison.
"Every single one of them asks, 'When is the coffee
bar going to be open? I'm gonna be in here every
ple pot full
hang out an
Inside the roasting room, dozens
of burlap bags of coffee beans from
around the world line the far wall.
They've come from as far away
as Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica,
d Nicaragua, Mexico, Peru, Brazil;
Ethiopia and Sumatra.
Much of the coffee grown in-
these countries comes from very
poor regions, but Sweetwater's cof-
fee is fairly traded, meaning farmers get
paid a living wage to grow it.
While fair trade is a hot topic among coffee sell-
ers, Edison and her husband, Chris Neumann, said
they don't want to push it on people.
"We love talking about it, and we love to let
people know, 'Hey, this great coffee is also coming
to you correct,' but we don't use that as a selling
point," Neumann said.

Fall movies look sizzling after summer flicks fizzled
While the summer movie
season was a little disap-
pointing, it seems that
fall has the potential to make up for
the lack of cinematic talent these
sweltering months provided.
This fall, moviegoers will get
a break from the massive produc-
tion-and-budget action movies the
film studios tried to float this sum-
mer but ultimately flopped.
Hollywood is looking to theme
this fall with dramatic pieces and
In the action genre the fall will
begin as hunky Jason Statham
returns in -"Transporter 2." It
promises cool action sequences
that remind me of Jackie Chan or
Jet Li-type fighting only with a
much hotter Statham.
The Rock will star in "Doom"
in November, which is based
on the classic computer game I
think everyone has played at least
once. The wrestler is known for
his memorable turns in critically
acclaimed movies such as "The
Scorpion King" so I am sure
he will keep up his street creden-
tials by mutilating aliens all while
keeping one eyebrow raised. Now
that's what I call talent.
The sequels to "Saw" and "The
Mask of Zorro" round out the ac-
tion-movie lineup for the fall.
Drama and romance will
abound as the leaves turn as well.
Reese Witherspoon and Mark
Ruffalo will pair up in "Just Like
Heaven," which to me looks like
a cross between "Ghost" and
"Heart and Souls." Ruffalo falls
for the spirit
of a beautiful
of course, who
used to live in his
and continues to "haunt" it.
Gwyneth Paltrow will pursue
a second Academy Award nomi-
nation and possibly win it in the
movie version of the Pulitzer
Prize-winning Broadway_ play
"Proof." Paltrow stars as the
troubled daughter of a brilliant but
mentally ill mathematician played
by Anthony Hopkins.
Cameron Diaz will star in
the movie adaptation of Jennifer
Melissa novel "In Her
Filipkowski Shoes," a story
The Reel Life about two very
email@example.com different sisters
and their rela-
Danes will have to choose between
a quirky musician and a suave old-
er man played by Steve Martin in
the romantic comedy "Shopgirl."
"Almost Famous" direc-
tor Cameron Crowe will return
with another drama called
"Elizabethtown," which already is
creating some buzz.
I predict the blockbuster mov-
ies for the fall or the movies
I am most excited to see are:
"Harry Potter and the Goblet of
Fire," "Rent," "The Producers:
The Movie Musical," "King Kong"
and "The Chronicles of.Narnia:
The Lion, The Witch and The
All have had major buzz a hd
already have trailers in theaters.
Whatever movies you choose
to see during the season, we can
be assured the fall, while colder,
will definitely be a hotter movie
season than the summer turned
out to be.
Cleavage calls for extreme caution: no butts about it
Both guys and girls seem to straddle
the line on this issue.
A divide by any other name would
call this trend "plumber's crack."
The euphemism emerged in 2002 when
fashionistas donning low-slung pants dared
to bare a little more of the foul line.
With this picnic of skin, some guys find
a feast for the eyes while others find a less-
"It aiakes me want to go give the girl a
giant wedgie," my friend Ryan said.
Brandishing a g-string in addition to the
back-eye slit has lowered the bar for tacki-
ness yet another notch.

At dinner the other night, I had the
misfortune of sitting face-
to-bum with a girl on a
barstool whose cheeks
were revealed for all to
see. -They were staring at
me. I. pondered the many
ways this was unsanitary,
but I digress.
If fashion condones it, it must be OK,
right? Hm, I wonder if history will look as
favorably on butt cleavage as it does on acid-
washed jeans and leisure suits.

Becoming a music scenester in five simple steps
By BRIAN OFFENTHER
Hey, freshmen! Stop looking at the cam-
pus map, stop calling your (soon-to-be ex)
girlfriend who's going to a different college
and read here. I know what's good for you.
You want music. You need some rock 'n roll
in your soul.
Well, lucky you, because G'ville has got
qiu t'e a happening music scene.
We inspired an ode by Less Than Jake
with "Gainesville Rock City." Last April, we
were ranked in the Top 5 of Esquire's "Cities.
that Rock." Everything from "solo acoustic
grind chord" (Rubber Room).to "ska-core
surf rock" (Ten 13 Concept) graces the local
stages on an average night.
I humbly present to you some pointers
for the future Gainesville music scenester.
Online Guide to Bands
- the only site you'll need for everything
music in Gainesville. The site has a compre-
hensive upcoming show list, quick profiles
of just about every band in town and a mes-
sage board to discuss everything in between.
New musicians in town should check out the
Create-A-Band forum, where many bands re-
cruit members or form entirely new acts.
The webmaster, Glypher, ubiquitous at
all major shows for the last 50 years, puts his
heart and soul into local music.
Where to buy local music
Browse through local music CDs and
records around town.
Hyde and Zeke's, 1620 W University
Ave., No Future Records, 107 N Main St.,
Hear Again CDs, 818. W University Ave.,
and the local CD Warehouse franchise, 3224
SW 35th Boulevard, sell music by local acts.
Anyone interested in independent music
should check out the Wayward Council, 807
W University Ave, a "non-profit store" that
sells independent records and CDs, T-shirts
Another tip for the future is to keep an
eye on the Alachua County library system. It
is in the process of beefing up its local music
Local music on the radio dial
Despite the absolute travesty of not hav-
ing an independent college radio station in
town, local music can be found on the FM
Every Wednesday at 9 p.m. on The Buzz,
100.5 FM, hear clueless local music impresa-
rio Moe Rodriguez mess up the soundboard
and beg his guests not to curse. Thankfully,
he also plays some great music, and his ban-
ter is entertaining.
The Locals Only show is on with DJ
Philip Ny 2 ar.-n on Rock 104, 103.7 FM, every
Sunday night. The real bonus here is the
station's Web site Rockl04.com streams
every week's show commercial free.
Music for cheap
If you're skeptical and maybe a little
cheap, plenty of shows around town are
absolutely free. Behind Chipotle Grill on
University Aveinue is a purple house called
Tim and Terry's Music and More.
Located at 1417 NW First Ave., Tim and
Terry's sells a bit of everything, including beer,
guitars and the best grilled-cheese sandwiches.
Oc ar ,,-:,i;', it also holds an "intimate" show
in its limited space. Last year ska legends the
Toasters played an acoustic set.
. On UF's campus, shows have been hap-
pening more often. Most of them are free.
The Reitz Union is the usual scene, with
bands playing in the Orange and Brew on
Thursday and Friday nights.
Last year, the Stephen C. O'Connell
Center brought in some big names, includ-
ing the Roots. Other places like Satchel's
Pizza and the Downtown Community Plaza
also host shows once in a while.
What's not the local music scene
Stay away from'the Swamp Restaurant and
"venues" like it. Nothing against the Swamp
itself you can eat there, but don't go for the
music. The nightly dude in a collared shirt and
khaki shorts singing massacred Sublime and
Van Morrison covers isn't Gainesville's real
The frequent, excruciating cover of
"Wonderwall" might be what forced the Oasis
reunion so the Gallagher brothers could re-
deem their music.
Unless you plan on rushing this year (and I
don't mean 2112), stay far, far away.

Hurricane party kits call for more than 'D' batteries
The merciless storms that tear
through rooftops, flood streets and
erode beaches, leaving behind a chunk change
of destruction, only to be remembered by
names like Ivan or Frances.
This season, the first hurricane fo brush
the sunshine state showed little mercy to
the panhandle, but it also began the annu-
.ffrenzy to gather survival supplies such
as generators and non-perishable foods.
Many of these supplies run standard
across the state but this is Gainesville,
college town extraordinaire.
If you think the orange and blue lining
the streets for the first game day is surreal,
just wait until the first hurricane. This place is
anything but normal then.
A good majority of UF students live in
rented space, like dorms or apartments, al-
leviating the largest stress of hurricanes.
Whatever damage ensues on the property,
someone else will have to foot the bill. With
that worry out of the way, here are the sur-
vival supplies students really need during
Being trapped anywhere in Gainesville
won't be fun without good friends. When
hurricanes spin toward
town, make plans to have
friends stay over and have
a hurricane party. The term
"safety in numbers" applies
here whether it's true or
not, it'll make everyone feel
better when the winds begin to howl.
A hurricane party needs food, with several
slight adjustments. If there's any time to try and
clear out the freezer and refrigerator, this would
be it. If the power goes out, the food will spoil
anyway. Heat up those Hot Pockets that have
icicles from prolonged freezer time. Make some
pudding with milk that's about to go bad.
Create a smorgasbord of hors d'oeuvre before
the electricity blows. If anything, it'll be fun to
see what's been lurking in the fridge all year.
Watching live coverage of weathermen
braving the storm can be entertaining, but
unless one of them gets hit with a Ramada
sign, it gets old quickly. Stock up on mov-
ies before the storm. Box-set collections
of TV shows provide endless hours of
entertainment and allow
Heather for breaks in between. A
Berger good choice is "Family
Survival Guidess Guy: Season 3" humor
email@example.com makes time go by faster.
But what happens after
you've been eating Hot
Pockets and watching "Family Guy" for eight
You're legs will stiffen and you'll feel like a
This is when things get silly.
Reach under the bed and pull out
that Tae Bo workout video you've never
touched. Move all furniture to the side
and feel the cardiovascular burn you never
knew you could handle. If someone feels
inclined, let them lead the workout. Even
if Billy Blanks' belligerent punching and
kicking proves too much, it could be the
most entertaining part of the hurricane.
Next, make sure to have camera fully
charged. Put on a poncho, grab a flashlight
and try to be as cool as the weathermen on
TV. Taking fake pictures of your friends defy-
ing the storm on the balcony or porch make
great memories of your quarantined weekend
at home. This might sound lame, but after 24
hours, it'll sound great.
The last six-pack of survival supplies are
for those students 21 and older. Relaxing with
a few beers can always ease hurricane party
tensions. No one has to worry about guests
trying to drive home, so everyone wins. Good
Instead of wreaking havoc when the next
storm heads toward town, keep this article

hurricanes mean party time.

Nonstop sex, sophisticated men revealed as merely sexual myth
ou think you're going to get laid every weekend.
Or you think attractive, sophisticated medical stu-
dents are the norm.
You think everyone in college has sex all the time, and
you might even think you need a sock-on-the-doorknob
code with your roommate to prevent awkward situations.
You'll never need a sock on the doorknob. In fact, it's
more likely your roommate will walk in on you masturbat-
ing than you having sex anywhere often enough to need a
Anyway, it's not your fault. Everyone comes to school
qith a head full of collegiate sexual mythology. Women
come into college with the expectation of an ever-lasting
group of smart, sophisticated and attractive singles to date,
and men believe it's all nonstop sex. And both believe that in
college, your sex life is the easy part of being at school.
The origins of these myths may be based in some truths.
Women in college take sex less seriously than when they
were younger. However, high school boys misinterpret
sexual empowerment for promiscuity when hatching stories
in the lunchroom.
For the female freshmen, while your parents may have
met in college and the guys here seem more
mature than any you've known before,
most guys show up at UF with a lot of
growing up to do.
Now, I know no one likes to be lectured,
so I'll only add here what I wish I had been
told four years ago.
First, sex isn't as huge as you make it in your head. Really.
Sex only highlights our most hidden foibles. It's how you
learn a guy can have freckles on his penis or a girl can have
different sized breasts. As awkward and humorous as sex can
be, it also teaches us how little these flaws actually matter.
Second, more than anything else, the college experience
teaches self-discovery. You might have small moments of re-
alization about yourself, like whether or not you leave a note
when you scrape another car in the parking garage. Or they.
might be huge discoveries, like whether or not you prefer
being intimate with men or women.
But with all discoveries about who you are, self-acceptance
remains the only way to have those les-
sons stick. It's also the only way to really
Mr. Lube enjoy your time here.
Risqu6 Business Other than that, I can only stress that
firstname.lastname@example.org dating isn't as easy as you think it's go-
Maybe you'll be one of those rare,
lucky freshmen who meets someone great from upstairs in
the first month and have a long, happy relationship..
But realistically, you have better odds of contracting an
The utopia in your mind doesn't exist. You're not going
to get laid every weekend. But that doesn't mean you still
shouldn't have a lot of fun trying.

"Where can I get
an affordable cut
Beating a bud-
get strain involves
hopping around town for differ-
ent services instead of sticking
with one salon for everything. I
recommend Salon La Di Da, 12 E
University Ave., costing around
$30 for a cut. But you want to
make sure your stylist is not a
senior whose prices tend to be
much higher. For highlights,
Scissors, 411 SW 2nd Ave, is
most affordable starting at $40,
while Tecnicolors Salon, 408. W
University Ave., prices a full
color at $45. If your purse strings
are still tighter, you might want
to consider Regis in the mall,
but their prices are rather com-
petitive, so money saved will be

"Where can I see
venue for community theater
is the Gainesville Community
Playhouse, 4039 NW 16th Blvd.
GCP's new theater opening in
January should raise the commu-
nity standards. Gainesville also
is the home of the Acrosstown
Repertory Theatre, 619 S Main St.
UF's Constans Theater and SFCC's
Auditorium in E building both
are stage student productions. If

"Where is the best
place to get veg-
a great place for
vegetarians, as almost every lo-
cally-owned restaurant has a
decent vegetarian menu. Case in
point: The Reggae Shack Caf6,
619 W University Ave., has killer
Jamaican food in tofu form. For
vegans, Leonardo's Pizza, 1245
W University Ave., features a
dairy-free slice that is quite deli-
"Is there anywhere
to eat besides
Now that you
are a Gator, you
have certain must-do's. You have
to learn the "chomp" for football
*games. And, you have to eat at
Burrito Brothers at least. once.
Burrito Brothers, at the corner
of 13th Street and University
Avenue, actually ships their
burritos to alumni out of town.
You are part of the last incoming
freshmen class to catch them in
their original location before the
University Corners construction
displaces them for a few years.

"Where is the best
'If you want a
hip and cool atmo-
sphere to eat sushi,
dine at Dragonfly Sushi and Sake
Company, 201 SE 2nd Ave.
The oversized, royal purple
velvet couches and dark red
decor exude a sophisticated,
big-city vibe in this small town.
But for the best taste of raw fish,
Ichiban on 43rd Street wins for
its maki rolls. Also notable are
the Spicy Salmon Tenipura Roll,
Dynamite Roll or Yoshi Roll, a
sweet blend of eel, eel sauce and
avocado. Ichiban is one of the few
sushi places in town that is not all
rice and little fish.

"Where is the best
mother know you
asked us this question? No one
else on staff wanted to touch
this one. But in the interest of
objectivity and as a nod to our
Detours roots, I'll take it. If you
don't know what Detours was,
Every few miles along 1-75 you'll
find billboards touting Caf6 Risque
in Micanopy as the best strip club
in the area. We're not going to chal-
lenge the advertising. In Gainesville,
the remaining adult entertainment
would be X-mart Adult Supercenter,
3510 SW 13th St. I've never been
there but I've seen the X-mart van
around town. If they can afford a
porno-van, the business must be do-
ing something well.
Are any restaurants open into
the wee hours of the morning?
I remember my surprise when I
discovered Pita Pit at 3 a.m. Located
in the UF Plaza near Gator City, the
Swamp and XS, people swarm the
eatery after the bars and clubs house
lights turn on at 2 a.m. But I am for-
ever fond of Perkins Restaurant and
Bakery on Newberry Road, which
serves breakfast, lunch and dinner
all day, any time.
Where can I see independent
films and documentaries?
SThe Hippodrome plays some su-
Sper interesting stuff when it doesn't
have live performances. Also, the
film majors have screenings from
time to time if you keep an eye out
for fliers. The Civic Media Center,
1021 E University Ave., offers some
alternative flicks, as well.
"Where is the best
place for pizza?"
If you end up in
"Mark Rush's eco-
nomics class, you will come to think
of Leondardo's Pizza on University
Avenue as the only place in town.
No.doubt, the big Leo shames any-
thing Pizza Hut ever tried to do with
But-let's talk slice here. Momo's
SPizza, 1702 W University Ave.,
claims they have a slice that's as
big as your head. They're not lying.
But don't forget a UF classic, the

MONDAY, AUGUST 15, 2005, NEW STUDENT EDITION, a ALLIGATOR 47
Gators make history, play in CWS championship
OMAHA, Neb. The longest season in
UF history went by in a flash.
SOn November 24, when the team was
wrapping up fall workouts, Jeff Corsaletti
predicted as much.
"You play 56 games, and those 56 games
feel like they're all in one month by the time
you're done playing," Corsaletti said. "Before
you know it, it will be done, so you just have
to cherish every moment of it."
Actually, the Gators played 71 games this
year, going further than any previous UF
baseball team by reaching the championship
round of the College World Series.
The success of the 2005 team did not come
overnight. UF coach Pat McMahon stuck with
his strategy from the beginning. Instead of
having his players overwhelmed with the
daunting trials of the entire season, McMahon
sets short-term goals for his team.
"The stages and the plan are really impor-
tant to me because it breaks everything down
into a step," McMahon said. "Now you have a
specific goal that is reachable. With anything
you do, so often people get concerned about
the bigger picture. A journey is steps and
stages, and if you don't take it that way I think
there's a chance to run eschew."
McMahon was named Southeastern
Conference Coach of the Year after the Gators
finished 20-10 in the SEC and won the confer-
Prior to the beginning of the season, a
poll of SEC coaches placed the Gators in
third place. That's third place in the Eastern
Division. When informed of his -colleague's
prediction in January, McMahon flashed his
By TIM CASEY
"Interesting," McMahon said. "We'll look
for that as a wonderful challenge to move
things forward. And we will."
Blueprint for Success
One of the most apparent beginnings of
the team's development was the signing of a
highly touted junior college transfer.
A former first-round draft pick in the Major
League Draft, Alan Home returned to the SEC
a year after playing at Chipola Junior College.
His career at Mississippi was cut short by
Tommy John surgery 22 months ago.
When Home stepped on campus in
January McMahon said that pitching coach
Ross Jones turned handsprings in the out-
The Gators also returned a core of four
seniors. Center fielder Jeff Corsaletti turned
down a professional contract in the off-season.
He wanted to increase his draft standing and
reach the College World Series. .
* "If it was up to me, I'd like to hit 12-13
home runs this year," he said in November.
"But, at the same time, if I only hit five or six
home runs and we go to Omaha, I'll take that.
That will work for me."
Corsaletti hit 10 home runs and was draft-
ed in the sixth round by his favorite team, the
Boston Red Sox, improving his draft standing
by 22 rounds. He had predicted the team's
success would ride on the pitching staff.
"Last year, I thought we were one pitcher
short," Corsaletti said. "I think this year we
have a good shot. Our pitching staff, our crop
of new pitchers, we have a bunch of good
Add to the mix a powerful sophomore first
baseman. Matt LaPorta led his summer league
in home runs in the off-season. He said that the
team was out to prove its detractors wrong.
"Everybody thought we wouldn't even fin-
ish third in-our own division," LaPorta said. "I
knew at the beginning that we had a chance to
go this far."
.LaPorta was named to multiple All-
America teams and led the nation with 26
home runs. He said that the recent success of
the team will be a foundation for future years.
"I think it's good for the team to know that
we should be able to get [to Omaha] every
year," LaPorta said. "Once you get that taste
of it, you should pass that tradition on. People
get that swagger and feel like they can be there
But no story rivaled that of third-baseman
Brandon McArthur. Accounts of his brain
surgeries, following an unprovoked attack
outside a Gainesville bar in October 2003 have
been well documented. While the team played
on ESPN in Nebraska, his heartwarming story
of recovery was repeated to a national audi-
ence. While many people may have been
sympathetic, for much of the year, opponents

didn't cutlMcArthur any slack.
McArthur had the lowest fielding percent-
age of anybody on the team with more than
50 chances. He struggled at the plate at thqbe-
ginning of the year despite nearly scoring the
winning run in the season opener, a game the
Gators lost to Charleston Southern.
"I'm not really worrying about the last
game or thinking about the future," McArthur
said during a 15-game hitting steak in April.
"When you struggle, you let it go. You don't
think about it and don't wonder what wguld
have happened if you would have done it dif-
On February 22, McArthur had three hits
against FAMU. Before the game, the scars
from the surgeries were visible after he shaved
his head, shaped in a long arc that resembled
the stitches on a baseball.
He said the new haircut wasn't an attempt
to break his hitting slump.
"I'm not that superstitious about this game,
it wasn't anything like that," McArthur said.
"We're an easy-going team. It was getting
long. I said if we're going to cut it, might as
well take it all off."

UF MEN'S BASKETBALL
Donovan calls on youth to replace talented trio
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
If you blinked your eye, you
probably missed it.
One minute, the UF men's bas-
ketball team featured one of the
most talented trios in the NCAA.
Suddenly, the Gators minus
stars David Lee, Matt Walsh and
Anthony Roberson are just a
shell of the team that won the SEC
Tournament in 2005.
But a little rebuilding never
stopped UF coach Billy Donovan.
UF enters the 2005-06 season
full of youth and inexperience, but
there's plenty of talent on the roster
to make the Gators a true threat in
the Southeastern Conference.
Donovan's rebuilding project
begins at the point guard position,
where he must replace Roberson,
the runner-up for SEC Player of the
Year in 2005. Roberson left UF fol-
lowing his junior season but wasn't
selected in the NBA Draft.
Walter Hodge, this year's Florida
Gatorade State Player of the Year
out of Florida Air Academy in
Melbourne, doesn't have quite
the same accolades of Roberson
- a McDonald's High School All
American heading into UF, but
the 6-foot guard's style of play is
similar to that of Roberson.
"Walter adds speed, quickness
and shooting to our backcourt,"
Donovan said. "He has the potential
to be a very good defender and is
coming out of a great high school
program, so we're certainly excited
to have him join us."
The potential battle between
Hodge and soon-to-be sophomore
Taurean Green for the starting point
guard job should be extremely com-
Green had a solid freshman sea-
son backing up Roberson. Unlike
Hodge, Green is a true point guard,
looking to pass first.
But if Hodge turns out to be as
explosive as Dono an. hope- itmay
be tough to keep him on the bench
"It's way too early to talk about
a freshman's playing time. You
never-know how freshman are go-
ing to react to a certain situation,"
scout.com recruiting analyst Dave
Telep said. "But make no mistake,
Walter Hodge was recruited to play
Telep is high on incoming fresh-
man Derwin Kitchen, a 6-foot-4
guard who he believes could receive
the most playing time of any fresh-
man next season.
Kitchen will likely compete with
junior guard Lee Humphrey for the
starting spot at shooting guard. Last
year Walsh started at that position,
b,.il the iurio:r left UF early and even-
tually signed as a free agent with the
"Kitchen's a combo guard that
can plai both positions for them.
He's also a proven i. nncr Telep
said. "He's a versatile a guy who
can play both guard positions and
defend both spots."
Other than the point i i rd com-
petition, the battle for the starting
power forward should be one of the
top stories this fall.

The Lowdown: The Gators never ad'anceO past the opening weekend
of the NC.AA Tournament behind the star trio of David Lee, Ma In ailsh
and Antlhonr Roberson. Now, all three are gone and Coach Bllv Donovan

suits Donur.an's Loaching style, as well as Improved defensi elv, )ut the
eanm will be vere .ou.ng and s:onrlir droughts should be expected
Al Horford should be a lock at
center, but Joakim Noah, Adrian
Moss and Chris Richard will all
compete for one starting position.
"It's all about off-season strength
training. With that group there,
strength will be important," Telep
said. "[There could be a guy] like
Ni.iah that. could make leaps and
bounds in the off-season. There's
going to be some int tetin g prac-
tice sessions to see who breaks
Many experts, such as ESPN's
Andy Katz, are already picking UF
as a sleeper team in 2005-06.
"I think the talent is coming into
place," Telep said. "They've got
the young bigs they had last year
as well as Corey Brewer. Hodge
is a guy that can hopefully [give
valuable minutes] at point guard.
There's a good amount of talent in
this program and there should be
rea,.ionb'y1 hi;- expectations."

SI features Leak
By IAN FISHER
and ERIC ESTEBAN
"iL Alligator Staff Writers
Apparently, UF offensive coordinator
Dan Mullen has never heard of the Sports
When SI hit newsstands on Aug. 11, Chris
Leak graced the cover as an "unstoppable
player," and Mullen was nothing but excited
"I haven't got it yet," said Mullen on Aug.
10, the first day the cover debuted on the
Internet. "I need to get the real magazine ... so
I can have him sign it for me and put it on my
wall of fame of people that I've actually met in
my life that are famous."
All kidding aside, Mullen said it was an
honor for not only Leak, but also UF.
Right there plastered on the front with
Leak is UF at No. 3 in SI's preseason poll.
Mullen said Leak won't feel any of the ad-
ditional pressure that the lofty national predic-
"No matter where they picked us, if they
picked us No. 1 or No. 116, the expectations
are going to be really high, so I don't think that
changes expectations for Chris," Mullen said.
This was the sixth time UF has been fea-
tured on the cover of SI. Leak's appearance
ranks UF No. 3
was regional, with Texas' Vince Young and
Southern California's Reggie Bush on the
other two covers.
DETOUR: Thanks to a tip from a certain
Bachelor, UF is one receiver richer.
After last season, former Georgia Tech
quarterback Pat Carter planned on transfer-
ring to hometown South Florida, until he met
former UF quarterback Jesse Palmer.
Carter spent the summer training with
members of the New York Giants, including
Palmer, Matt Hasselbeck and his brother Tim
At the workouts, the sophomore's soft
hands impressed Palmer and Hasselbeck,
who influenced the former quarterback not
only to swap positions but destinations.
Carter must sit out this season due to
NCAA rules, but at practice Tuesday, he said
he is excited about his new position and op-
portunity in Meyer's offense.
"I feel like Coach Meyer has a great of-
fense," Carter said. "And he was telling me
that he could help me develop because I don't
have the experience at receiver, but I have the
FIELDTURF FIRST: The Gators practiced on
their new FieldTurf practice field for the first

The Gators have spent all summer practic-
ing at the Village South Fields on the south-
west side of campus while the new turf under-
goes a $1 million renovation. .
The field is shorter than a normal football
field, but Meyer said it will be useful during
"You wish you had about another 30 yards,
but I think someone said 18 of the NFL teams
have that turf now," Meyer said. "A lot of
colleagues in the profession say it's almost at
times better than grass because you don't have
Meyer said it was about 10 degrees hotter
on the surface, but he didn't notice.
SHIFTING THE LINE: Despite never register-
ing a start at the position to date, junior Ray
McDonald will be spending the near future
playing defensive end.
"[McDonald] is going to stay at end right
now," Meyer said. "[He's] different than [se-
nior defensive end Jeremy] Mincey, who's a
more athletic, fast guy. I kind of like the way
our first-team line looks."
The move outside opens up a spot for
junior Steven Harris at tackle. Harris, who
recorded 23 tackles and 3 sacks in 2004,

In-State or SEC? FSU or Tennessee, writers debate UF's biggest rival
Don't even think about reading the
other side to this debate. I know. I
know. You're in college now and
every Ph.D-toting, power point-presenting
professor will tell you it's best to hear both
sides of an argument before you make your
Anyone, however, who questions that
the Seminoles are the Gators' biggest rival
should spend another year at Santa Fe
Community College before coming to UF
What makes the best rivalries? History
and the stories that become legends long
after the games are played, if you ask me.
Every year's battle with FSU adds an-
other memorable chapter to the feud. Rumor
has it that in 1997, Steve Spurrier told Doug
Johnson to fire a spiral at Bobby Bowden's
900-year-old head during warm-ups.
In 2003, even the athletics directors got
into the mix after several missed calls by
ACC officials left Gator Nation crying foul.
In 2001, when FSU's Athletics Director
Dave Hart heard of Steve Spurrier's com-
plaints against the Seminoles, he replied that
Stevie Boy could use a bedtime spanking.
Obviously, the Tennessee game is im-
portant 'for the Gators to win the SEC.
Even ESPN college football analyst Kirk
Herbstreit personally told me (name drop)
in the spring, "the match up with the Vols
will decide whether UF is a national con-
The game itself though doesn't have the
hype or emotions that the FSU game does.
I'm just wondering: Do the Gators and
Volunteers gather at the 50 yard line before
the game to fight over the home team's logo?
What the average fan doesn't know is
that familiarity breeds contempt in sports.
Far's Side -
The Gators and 'Noles
are in-state rivals who
recruit the same play-
ers year in and year
out. When they get to-
gether it's not the first
meeting for most of
them. These athletes
have been competing
against each other
longer than they have
Look at most of the great rivalries in
sports: Yankees vs. Red Sox, North Carolina
vs. Duke, Alabama vs. Auburn. What do
they all have in common? Two perennial
powers whose fan bases are very close on
the map to one another. It's tough for UF and
UT fans to jaw back and forth when there are
550 miles separating them.
Skeptics like to claim that the rivalry lost
some of its Fun-n-Gun when Spurrier left.
With Urban Meyer on board, I guarantee the
game will be as divisive as ever.
Meyer has molded his players to live and
play the right way since day one. Meanwhile,
FSU's starting quarterback Wyatt Sexton
proclaimed to Tallahassee police that he was
God and linebacker Ernie Sims was arrested
for beating up his girlfriend.
You only have to look at last year to see
what FSU means to the Gators. UF's disap-
pointing season had many low-lights: an
early season loss to the Vols, just the second
loss in 15 years to Georgia, and yet another
bullying by Miami in the Peach Bowl.
But you don't remember all that. You
remember a pretty good year because the
Gators defeated FSU in Tallahassee for the
first time since 1986.
You want rivalry?
When the Volunteers come to
the Swamp on Sept. 17, it will be
the most heated and meaningful game
that the Gators have had in almost five
In order to explain whom UF's biggest
rival is heading into 2005, it's critical to
look at history's past mixed with the pres-
ent. It's hard to deny the passion that goes
on between the Gators and Seminoles, but
don't let far, far and away Farzad trick
Florida State is a program on the de-
cline that could very well be unranked

An unproven quarterback in Drew
Weatherford or Xavier Lee, a subpar of-
fensive line, discipline problems and a
coach so old that they don't even bother
connecting his headset on the sidelines

While the game is played late in the
season, it is still a non-conference match
up that plays no part in deciding the
Southeastern Conference race.
After Tennessee's last second victory
in 2004 in which UF's clown coach Ron
Zook let yet another one slip away, the
Volunteers have the talent, momentum
and confidence to defeat UF again. Meyer

Soccer hopes to rediscover postseason success
* SEVEN SENIORS HOPE TO LEAD
THE GATORS TO A SEC TITLE.
By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
While the UF soccer team may have
bowed out of the 2004 postseason with
much less grace than it would have liked,
dod't assume this translates into lessened
expectations for the upcoming season
"I'm hyped up about this year, and I
think we have all the pieces," senior goal-
keeper Jen Gardner said. "It will just be a
matter of putting the puzzle together.
"After seeing what we've done during
the off-season, I think our team stacks up
pretty tough this year," Gardner said.
"Anything less than an SEC regular sea-
son title or an SEC Tournament title will
definitely be a disappointment."
The optimism doesn't stop with the
Coach Becky Burleigh expects to see
great things from her squad when they
open at home Aug. 26 against Drake.
"We're a good team, an athletic team,
and it's all going to depend on how we
come together," Burleigh said. "We al-
ways want to be one of the top teams, and
I think that we have what it takes to do so
The Gators' success in 2005 may re-
volve around how well they recover from
a disappointing conclusion to last year's
In 2004, the Gators racked up 13 wins
in the regular-season, surging through the
SEC Tournament to defeat Tennessee for
the conference titl1.
But the team fell flat in a first-round
NCAA tournament loss to in-state rival
"We were very upset with the way our
season ended," Gardner said._ "Losing in
the first round to a team we felt we could
have beaten was difficult.
"To come all that way, to win the SEC
Tournament and then to fall in game one
of the NCAA's was a bit of a let-down."
The Gators haven't had much trouble
in recent regular seasons, but after win-
ning the national title in 1998 and reach-
ing the final four in 2001, early postseason
exits have become the norm.
This year's roster will feature seven
seniors. If the Gators are to return to a
championship level, the burden may be
placed on the veterans.
"A lot of our success this season will
depend on how our seniors handle them-
selves," Burleigh said. "We have a great
class and if they can handle the responsi-
bility, they can take us a long way."
The leadership of its seniors will a be
crucial element for an offense that will
have to rely on younger and relatively
unproven names after losing its top scor-
ing threat in two-time SEC Player of the
Year Stephanie Freeman..
Coach Burleigh said she believes that
it is too early to tell who will step up to
provide an offensive threat, but that there
is plenty of talent to fill the void.
"We lost a lot of good players and a good
senior class last year, but we've replaced
them with some great players as well,"
Burleigh said. "We have a lot of depth at
forward with new and returning players.
"We've gotten some great contribu-
tions from our freshmen and younger
players in the past years, and we hope
that this year is no exception."

to Gators' offense
By BRYAN JONES
This summer brought the early
departures of key UF athletes
such as Matt Walsh, Anthony
Roberson, Channing Crowder and
Ciatrick Fason, but arguably UF's
most dominant team-sport athlete
will still be donning orange and
blue this season.
Already a two time All-
American volleyball player, Jane
Collymore will enter her senior
season as the key component to
the Gators' offensive attack-an
attack that is ranked eighth in
the nation, and will look to win
its 15th consecutive Southeastern
Of course, when you are as
physically gifted as Collymore,
the pressure seems a little less
"Athletically, Jane is in the same
group as some of the elite athletes
we've had come through this
program," Coach Mary Wise said.
"She's a special talent because of
her jump and foot-speed."
Collymore capitalized on that
athleticism last season en route to
SEC Player of the Year honors and
All-American status. Her 604 kills
and 707.points last season both
-rank second in school history.
But while she will look.to build
upon those numbers, it is her
leadership skills that she has truly
set out to improve this year.
"I think that when I first realized
I would have to take on a leadership
role, I would always kind of see
myself as a lead-by-example type
of leader," Collymore said. "But
I have been working on becoming
more vocal, because although that's
not something that is as natural for
.me, I think it is important to the
team for me to be more vocal."
Leadership aside, it is
Collymore's ability to get high
above the net that has been driv-
ing opposing teams crazy.
"She jumps so high, you can
throw a ball up to the ceiling and
she'd go up and get it," sopho-
more setter Angie McGinnis said.
"She just hits so much higher than
most people do."
Collymore attributes most of
her success to her coaches and to
her commitment to the game.
"Coming out of high school,
I didn't have a lot of experience
under my belt at all, buf I know
that I had a lot of potential, and I
just wanted to sit back and absorb
as much as I could," Collymore
said. "I knew I always wanted to
do great things in the sport and I
had potential, it was just a matter
of getting the
and the right
selected as the
Collymore hitter for the
U.S. Women's National Team in
the Pan American Cup, and she
aspires to make the U.S. Olympic
team once her playing days at UF
come to an end.
But for now, Collymore will
direct her focus on the upcoming
season,where the Gators will look
to recover from a hart-fought oss
to eventual National Champion
Stanford in last year's NCAA
For a perennial powerhouse
like the Gators, the goal is al-
ways to win-a national title, and
Collymore may be the key to
achieving that goal.
"Jane has the physical ability
to dominate a match," Wise said.
"She is the type of player that can
take a team to the next level. To
be successful, you have to have a
player like that."

Manson impresses coaches
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
.rJr "' -- 3-
I ... ,-.
Urban Meyer walked off UF's
practice field like a coach that had
seen his players for exactly one day.
With the pads still noticeably ab-
sent, Meyer said there were no sur-
prises and no real progress. But for
a coach spending his first summer
in the humid swamp of Gainesville,
two-a-days weren't exactly a wel-
"It looked like day one. It was
thick out here, it's.one of my first
summers at.UF," said a visibly tired
Meyer. "We've got a long way to
The Gators returned to practice
on Aug. 8 amid big expectations,
playing under a 'cach receiving
plenty of attention.
Still several days away from
donning pads, the Gators may not
have accomplished much in day
one. But the Gators couldn't help
but notice a fresh feeling brewing
on the field.
"Hell yeah," said safety Jarvis
Herring, when asked if Meyer's
two-a-days felt different than those
in years past. "It's all about getting
up and going. We've got a new
thing going on. Nobody's half-step-
UF's practice sessions moved to
the southwest side of campus this
season while the regular practice
field undergoes a $1 million reno-
So with a large crowd watching
from the intramural field bleachers,
all eyes were on UF's most antici-
pated position battle.
Deshawn Wynn, Skyler
Thornton and Markus Manson,
each have two weeks to show they
should be the one to replace last
year's SEC leader in rushing yards,
"Even our receivers looked
heavy-legged. But Markus
Manson came out and
bounced around today. I
UF football coach
After leading the team in rushing
touchdowns two years ago, Wynn
went from a solid No. 2 behind
Fason early last year to an injury-
ridden player who Ron Zook ac-
cused of lacking a strong work ethic
by the end of the season.
On the first day of practice,
SMeyer said that' Wynn had a solid
summer, but rumors have swirled
throughout practice regarding
Wynn's status for opening day.
Meyer wouldn't deny or con-
firm rumors that Wynn may be sus-
pended at the start of the season.
In the end, it may not matter
because Meyer said he was really
impressed by Manson, a redshirt
"[I liked Manson's] speed and
bounce," Meyer said on Aug. 8.
"It's heavy out here. The guys
ran this morning and they lok ed
heavy-legged. Even our receivers
looked heavy-legged..But Markus
Manson came out and bounced
around today. I noticed him."
From a physical standpoint,
Manson may be ready, but he said
he's still adjusting to the college
"I want to improve on my
mental aspect of the game and be
ready on Sept. 3 when my number
gets called," Manson said.
Thornton, meanwhile, ended
up as the No. 2 back when Wynn
went out of the lineup last season.
While Wynn and Manson may
receive most of the attention,
Thornton isn't out of the picture
for the top job.
"Last year nobody really gave
me a chance, so I showed people
what I could do toward the end
of the season," Thornton said.
"Now, going into two-a-days and
going into the season, I feel very
Meyer said he won't name a
starter for several weeks.
So while the Gators still have a few
issues to work out, the players expect
Meyer to figure it out by the Sgt. 3
season opener against Wyoming.
"We've got-to create some depth
right now. When we've got more
depth, it could be something spe-
cial," Herring said. "Everybody's
going hard, and it could be a great
-season for us."
UF offers plenty of sports for fans, those looking to avoid homework
If the onslaught of orange and blue splat-
tered across campus, hasn't made you
violently ill yet, congratulations. You're on
your way to becoming a true Gators fan.
Welcome, newbies. You've just entered
the Twilight Zone, commonly referred to as
the UF sports program. Try to maintain your
composure the first Saturday you walk out
of the dorm and witness an invasion of RVs.
No need to call the Homeland Security office,
people simply treat Gators football like it's a
cross between a gladitor fight and Woodstock.
Be thankful that you arrived in Gainesville
at the right time. Unless you're a fan of under-
achieving and judging by your 1590 SAT
score and 4.2 GPA, you're probably not it's
been a bit ugly the last few seasons.
But just a year after UF became the joke
of ESPN's College Gameday and the punch-
ing bag of unheralded teams like Mississippi
State, it's suddenly hip to be a Gators fan.
New football coach Urban Meyer has
replaced Jesus as the official religious icon of
Gainesville (once again, they don't take foot-
ball lightly in this town).
Still, despite what you may have heard
from Daddy Alumnus,.it's not all about foot-
Few college basketball teams have boasted
more talent than UF throughout the '00s.
Recent postseason woes aside, Billy
Donovan and the Gators are one of the hottest
shows in town.
Try to nab a Rowdy Reptiles seat sometime
this year, because standing near courtside for
the UF-Kentucky game is just as thrilling as
any football experience.
And don't forget about college baseball.
Fresh off a trip to the
final round of -the
College World Series,
the UF baseball team
.., features more talent
than the Tampa Bay
Andrew Devil Rays. If you like
Abramson offense, college baseball
Drew's Control is your game.
firstname.lastname@example.org If you're still not sat-
isfied, there are plenty
of other UF sports to fill
your fix. And don't pass up a chance to watch
Gainesville's minor league college basketball
team that plays down the road at Santa Fe.
The Saints play an up-tempo, exciting, ego-
less brand of basketball.
But remember even though you weren't
a five-star football recruit or Mr. Florida
Basketball;you, Mr. And Ms. Joe Student, can
play sports at UF
The wonderful world of sport dubs and
intramurals is the perfect solution to losing
those "freshman 15." If you don't know what
I'm talking about, you'll get it after a few-2
a.m. fast food runs.
And best of all, you can get the most in-
depth Gators' sports coverage worldwide
for FREE everyday in those beautiful orange
Alligator boxes found around campus and be-
yond. You can even find us on the weekends

He's only a redshirt freshman, but if Markus Manson continues
to perform well in practice he could be UF's starting tailback.
