Protest complicates VP's visit
* THE PROTESTERS SPOKE
OUT AGAINST THE LACK OF
AN ASIAN AFFAIRS DIRECTOR.
By MICHEL BERGERON
The seats on the Reitz Union

dents wearing brightly colored
posters with "Missing: Director
of Asian American Affairs" bold--
ly written across.

has been brewing across campus
for the past two years.
Vice President. for Student
Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin was
slated to speak to students, but
did not take questions from the
approximately 50 students on the
colonnade before leaving.
The speech did not last as long
as Kshama Shah, treasurer of the

quickly walked away from the

less than five minutes.
The students of the various

responses as Telles-Irvin exited
the building, followed by Reitz

Shah and about 20 members

reasons for requesting a director

Alligator Contributing Writer
A sea of Greek letters flooded the Reitz
Union on Sunday as fraternity members
promoted their chapters to more than 400
prospective new brothers at the annual
Interfraternity Council orientation.
Students received information regarding
the 23 chapters that comprise IFC, as well as
a rundown of the week's upcoming events.
Fraternity recruitment officially began
Sunday and will run until Friday at 11 p.m.
Each chapter will host events throughout the
week geared toward getting to know poten-
"We definitely anticipate getting a larger
number of men going through the recruit-
ment process this year," said Chris Bucciarelli,
vice president of membership for IFC.
Those interested in joining a fraternity are
invited to stop by chapter houses for lunch
from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and dinner from 5 p.m.
to 7 p.m.
Chapters also host evening events from 8
p.m. to 11 p.m. every night.
"Potential new members walk to the dif-
ferent chapters and basically get a feel for the
guys in each organization," he said.
"It's a very casual atmosphere, and ev-
eryone has the option to come and go as he
pleases. You can visit all chapters or just one,
making the process very different from soror-
Bids to join a fraternity can be given at
any point throughout the week. Prospective
members can receive more than one bid

Life This year, IFC simplified the
process of registering for recruit-
ment by making its application available
online at www.greekgator.com. Each poten-
tial new member must register online before
accepting a bid.
"I'm looking forward to joining a fraternity
because I want to make friends that I'll have
for a lifetime," freshman Justin Bassell said.
To kick off recruitment week, the brothers
of Sigma Pi Fraternity hosted a free concert

Students played Frisbee and listened

an important issue or organization," said
fraternity President Chris Ferrante. "It's
just really important to Sigma Pi to be
involved in the community in a positive
way, to not only enjoy the social aspects of
being in a fraternity but to have fun help-

Rolling's appeals a
gimmick for attention
Sunday marked 15 years since Danny Rolling murdered
his last victims in their Gatorwood apartment. More
than 11 years after Rolling confessed and was convicted
of the grisly crimes, he waits on death row while appeal after
appeal slowly winds through the jumbled legal system.
Around this time every year, several newspapers look
back on the killings and contemplate the same issues: Where
are the victims' families today? Why hasn't Rolling been ex-
ecuted? Should the courts allow such dragged out proceed-
We all know Rolling is guilty. DNA tests and a confession
prove it. We also know this appeal process is just a game to
delay the inevitable. Rolling is riding on a wave of uncertain
justice created by court cases much less definitive than his
So why does Rolling continue to spend his days picking
through legal documents and bombarding every avenue
with flimsy appeals? His main argument is that he shouldn't
have been tried in Gainesville because an impartial jury
would have been impossible. Whether or not this conten-
tion is true is irrelevant: He committed the murders, and he
openly accepted his fate.
No, Rolling isn't on a crusade of justice, and he isn't try-
ing to squeeze out a few years of life. While he might have
begun with the appeals to save his skin, we just can't believe
his motives remain pure.
Rolling revels in the fame. Fifteen years later, his actions
still bring chills to students and their parents. Stories of the
murders continue to circulate around Gainesville. Freshmen
rarely finish their first year without hearing, in gory detail,
how Rolling tortured his victims. Everyone loves to brag
about living in the town where the infamous killing spree
His actions have become the basis for an urban myth.
Although the murders remain very real to those who expe-
rienced the period first hand, most of Gainesville's residents
are new students. We can't think of something so gruesome
The way Rolling murdered his victims reveals his need
for recognition. He didn't just kill his victims he repeatedly
stabbed them, raped the women, and then mutilated and
posed their bodies.
He wanted the headlines. He wanted Gainesville to be
frightened. It wasn't just that Rolling killed. It was that he
killed with such apparent pleasure.
And every year Rolling gets to relive that rush. Every
time he puts in another appeal and every year he cheats the
system, Rolling gets headlines in newspapers. He refuses not
only to die literally, but figuratively as well. As long as his
story is told over and over again in the media, his influence
will continue to spread across the nation. He wants to be a
Ted Bundy. He wants to be a Charles Manson.
Throughout his endless appeals process, Rolling has
transformed his victims into players in his one-man show.
Christa Hoyt, Sonja Larson, Tracy Paules, Christina Powell
and Manuel Taboada were more than just their deaths, but as
time goes on, Rolling forces their memories to be examples of
his character's fearsome deeds.
Why should the media continue to report the same stories
every year? Why do we allow Rolling to expand his influ-
ence? Let's leave the past where it belongs. Forget the court's
brand of justice real justice will only occur when Rolling
stops getting what he craves: fame and fear.

Guardian doesn't absolve Sun's bias
In the not-too-distant past, The Gainesville Sun includ-
ed a section titled the "Negro News."
Before that, stories detailing lynchings led by local
sheriffs, unflattering cartoons depicting blacks and other
items now deemed ghastly graced the pages of the same
With the founding of The Gainesville Guardian, have we
returned to that racist past? Maybe not, but it still makes
Through the weekly Guardian, the Sun (and its owner,
The New York Times) are providing "a community publica-
tion designed to serve both East Gainesville and the African
American community," Sun and Guardian publisher Jim
Doughton claimed in the Sun.
Former Guardian editor Charlotte Roy, a highly qualified
black journalist said to be excited about the venture and
inexplicably fired just days before its launch told Forbes
magazine, "There was a void in the Gainesville community.
There was not a paper that was focusing on the African
American population. This paper is filling that void."
The problem is there already is a newspaper charged
with that duty: The Gainesville Sun.
So, is the Sun's failure to adequately cover and interest
Gainesville's black community now excusable? I think not.
By founding the Guardian, the Sun has effectively out-
sourced its daily responsibility to inform its readers in
East and West Gainesville alike to a weekly paper targeted
only to a specific geographic area, the seemingly ignored
It is unlikely West Gainesville residents will pay much
attention to the Guardian. It is equally unlikely that the
black community within East Gainesville will trust the
weekly, whose publishers, have already failed that com-
munity and whose offices are located in West Gainesville.
Justin And it goes without saying that the
Hemlepp Guardian will not increase the Sun's
Speaking Out abysmal penetration into the East
The Gainesville Guardian typifies
the failure of the Gainesville community at large to address
the needs of its neediest residents. One has only to drive a
few blocks past Main Street to see that.
But those who lock their doors and roll up their win-
dows upon arriving there, ostensibly including Gainesville
Sun reporters, are contributing to the problem.
There is also the issue of a white-owned company pub-
lishing such a newspaper.
The black-owned Boston-Bay State Banner called
The New York Times Co. "journalistic carpetbaggers" in
light of the venture. In The Washington Times, a Howard
University journalism professor called the Guardian a
"white newspaper in blackface."
Notably, the same professor wrote in the also black-
owned Chicago Defender that The New York Times, amid
sagging newspaper circulations nationwide, has "turned to
people of color for their economic salvation."
Is that the case? Is the Sun, who is also creeping into the
student market in return for a share of UF students' Activity
& Service Fee, simply playing on an already exacerbated
racial divide to make yet another buck?
In reality, ownership doesn't matter, and one can't find
fault in trying to increase profits. But the Sun regardless of
the Guardian or the skin color of its publisher has a duty
to be a community newspaper, for the whole community.
Unless, of course, its name is changed to The West
Justin Hemlepp is a UF alumnus. He is a former Alligatoi

UF tight end starts over
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
Don't mess with Tate.
Tate Casey spent an entire year proving a
true freshman country boy from Texas could
hold his own among the top talent in the SEC.
But in the tight end's eyes, he's a fresh-
man all over again.
Casey remains modest. He'll tell you he's
not a starter, and he won't have a firm grasp
on that role until his name appears on the
In reality, Casey truly stands alone. After
catching four touchdowns as a freshman, it
seemed a foregone conclusion that Casey
would play a vital role in Urban Meyer's
Still, others waited in the wing. Former
Killian star Dane Guthrie figured to have a
say in the competition. Remember, it was
supposed to be Guthrie's job last year, but
injuries kept him off the field.
Instead of competing with Casey this
season, Guthrie transferred to Arizona State.
Casey almost stood alone.
But Markell Thompson a junior college
transfer last year that never materialized
-- still remained. Then, in training camp,
a broken ankle took Thompson out of the
Now, Casey stands alone. His new back-
ups are fullbacks-tumed-linebackers-turned
Ready or not, Casey is the man. Most
think he's ready.
"He's got so much talent, and he has
all the big play potential," said Pat Collins,
Casey's high school coach in Longview,
Texas. "He's a guy that's 6-foot-6 that -can
run and has good soft hands.
"I think he will play on the next level."
There's still one place where Casey's not
quite the man yet. At Gators' training camp,
where Meyer's motivational tactics never
cease, Casey's still a boy trying to earn favor
with a new coach.
It's no secret that Meyer gets the ball to
his tight ends. With four receivers solidified
in their roles, Meyer's still looking for a fifth
Casey's up for the-job, and after adding
more than 10 pounds of muscle, he certainly
looks the part. His competition includes a
few freshmen and a former quarterback.
Still, Meyer won't hand the keys to Casey.
"He needs to make plays," said Meyer,
following a recent scrimmage. "He had two
opportunities in the goal-line scrimmage.
He made one."
Maybe-Casey's not technically the man,
or maybe Meyer's trying to motivate a play-
er that's still just a sophomore, but Casey
won't take his chances.
So, he thought back to training camp pri-
or to his freshman season, when a redshirt
seemed just as likely as four touchdown
As part of the freshman hazing ritual,
Casey was forced to sport a mohawk.
To the surprise of his teammates, Casey
returned this year with the same look -- and
received unfavorable reviews by his mother,
Debby, who also served as an athletic trainer
at Casey's high school.
"I don't like the way it looks. I think he's
too cute with curly hair to do a mohawk,"
Debby said. "But if it makes him play bet-
ter, he feels like he's doing something for
Casey's explanation is simple.
"I'm taking the approach that you're
never too old, and it's kind of like another
freshman, season again," he said. "You
have to work your way up, earn a spot and
have some fun with it."
Assuming Casey builds on the fresh-
man campaign and develops into one of
the more talented tight ends in the nation,
Collins said much of the success can be at-
tributed to Casey's toughness.
"He was actually a [heck] of a defensive
end in high school also," Collins said. "In
case [Meyer] gets tired of him at tight end, he
can always flip him and put him on defense."
Collins began coaching at Longview
High Casey's freshman year, and it was a
perfect match from the start.
"He gave our veteran bunch hell in prac-
tice, he whipped their [behinds]," Collins
said. "They'd get mad at him, and we'd
have a fight or two break out."
Two coaches later, Casey once again must
"Last year really doesn't mean much,"
he said. "It's a new coach, new coaching

Dickey trusts Meyer's choice
DICKEY, from page 21
offensive coordinator Dan Mullen
said. "He came straight from the
College World Series to football
workouts. We tried giving him a

Mullen believes Dickey is so
melented that he can contribute

and running the ball.
"He is a real sharp guy,"
Mullen said. "If he wasn't as
smart and as athletic as he was,
we wouldn't be asking him to
play both wide receiver and

True freshman Josh Portis will

there-are no guarantees that the

In addition, Dickey's pro-
gression as a wide receiver has

played the position before.
"Gavin adds speed to the re-

Where and how much Dickey
will play in the fall is not yet
clear, however, his attitude has
already won Meyer's trust.
"I believe Coach when he says
he has a plan for me," Dickey
"Wherever I can help the
team out is where I want to be.
Whether it is as a backup quarter-
back or the seventh receiver, that
does not matter to me."
Degory: trust requires time to grow
TRUST, from page 26
Still, one variable exists: for a
player to act on instinct, he must
have trust in his teammates.
-. When it all works out for the
Gators, and trust finally meets
instinct, Meyer has two words
for-the SEC: "Watch out."
In 2002, the year prior to
Meyer taking the reins in Utah,
the Utes finished 5-6.
As much as Meyer's first-year
overhaul with the Utes might
have been, he admitted he knew
that the trust factor, and conse-
quently the team, could grow.
After his second preseason in
Salt Lake City, Meyer sensed the
"I looked at my wife and said,
'The only people that can screw
this up are the coaches, because
the players have this down,'"
Of course, the Utes rolled to a
perfect 12-0 season, becoming the
first mid-major conference team
to thrash the BCS hierarchy with
a Fiesta Bowl invite and victory.
"You have to trust what's hap-
pening," Meyer said.
"When that all happens, watch
, ut, because the Gators are going
to get you. But it has not hap-
And Meyer didn't even have
to know his UF players before he
realized the trust deficit preva-
lent on the UF sideline.
He saw it in the 7.4 yards per
return the Gators averaged last
S"I was talking to the young
guy who was returning kicks,
and I said, 'Well, why didn't you
hit it?' He said, 'I didn't think my
teammates were going to do their
jobs.' That's a big problem."
He saw it in the game film.
"In the Peach Bowl, you watch
Chris Leak come back here and
he was supposed to be looking

Y n Saturday, Urban Meyer will

since little Stevie Wonder. .'

blow to Gator Nation, Wyoming will I

night Beatty Tower dives on Saturday. firstname.lastname@example.org
The Gators will triumph this week-
end, but don't expect the blowout
everyone anticipates, at least not in the first half.
My heart, having watched Ron Zook patrol the sidelines,
wants to predict three losses. My head believes Meyer is re-
ally a genius that will find ways to win. So, I'm picking the
Gators to finish the regular season 11-1, with the only loss
to LSU on the road, and UF will avenge the loss in the SEC
championship game. But two national teams will finish un-
defeated, and the Gators will end up in the Sugar Bowl.
S e bandwagon pulled away ..R.
from the station quite some time
i ago, but Coach Urban Meyer's '
impact begins promptly on Sept. 3.
UF has always had the talent that
a SEC contender should have, but
Meyer's arrival in Gainesville has Eric Esteban
only highlighted the piss-poor coach- Tenacious E
ing job done by the prior staff. email@example.com
The Gators top stars are only ju-
niors, and that's when players usually
come into their own, maturing into
bona fide gamebreakers.
Couple that with the fact that Meyer actually has a clue
on how to coach a game, and the Swamp could be on the
national stage faster than Wayne Brady asking if he's going
to have to choke a bitch at Gator Growl this year. The Gators
will finish 10-2 with road losses to Alabama and LSU, but
win the SEC against the Tigers and play in the Sugar Bowl.
O h,how the football gods
ust love this. Fifteen
years after Steve Spurrier
began annihilating SEC teams with .
a gasp revolutionary passing
attack, young Urban Meyer has
been summoned upon to replicate Louis
his success. Like Spurrier, Meyer Anastasis -
is implementing a potentially le- Louis in the Bullpen
thal and indefensible attack, while firstname.lastname@example.org
lobbying for a state-of-the art
scoreboard at the Swamp that can
display his gargantuan point totals.
So the ultimate question becomes: Can Meyer, like
Spurrier, lead the Gators to the best SEC record in his first
season? Only two teams propose a dangerous scenario. UT
visits the Swamp and the Gators travel to LSU. Seeing how
UF nearly defeated both teams with an incapable coaching
staff last season, I see the Gators taking both games. Barring
injury, UF takes the SEC, but loses to USC in the Rose Bowl.

. The Gators will be a lot better than they were under Ron
Zook's tenure. I think they will finish 9-3 this year, including
a much-needed bowl game victory.
They'll consistently be in the top 15 in the polls, which is
a solid improvement over the past few seasons. But, to think
this team is already on the Trojans' level is ludicrous.

Leak ready to shoulder expectations, take command
By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
The pressure follows Chris Leak, cor-
ners him, then demands his football soul.
The pressure speaks to him in tongues.
First, it scrutinizes him through boosters
and tortures him with a Sports Illustrated
cover. Then, the pressure gives him ulti-
matums: as a junior, you must play like a
Sgsnior. Instead of a quarterback, you must
play like a Heisman-back. Hundreds of
passing yards a game won't cut it if you
choke in the fourth quarter,
So what does Leak do? He charges out
of the corner with the fury of a young
"It's part of being the leader of the
team," said Leak, of pressure, his nemesis.
"It's my team, I've taken full ownership
Shouldn't it smart? All this pressure,
especially now. With Urban Meyer's
spread offense infiltrating the Swamp,
fans won't ask Leak whether he will pass
for four touchdowns a game. Rather, it'll
be: "Will you go to Chad Jackson for three
and Andre Caldwell for one, or do you
want Tate Casey and Dallas Baker to catch
Like choosing between gummy bears
and peanut butter cups at the candy store,
there is no failure taffy that Leak can pur-
chase instead. And he wouldn't want to
take that route either. Max out the credit
card, because Leak has one heck of a sweet
"I mean that's why you come here,"
said Leak about the hopes and demands
for him to take the Gators in 2005 to dare
we say it? where they last went in 1996.
"You want to be able to play in those big
games, play in those SEC title games. You
come here because the expectations are
He won't take being pretty good for an
option, this 2005 Leak.
That's why he can't remember how
much time he's spent in the film room this
summer. 'Endless hours' he says, recalling
how Meyer assigned him the entire spread
offense rather than making it a two-year
"You have to learn until you've got it
down," Leak said. "It doesn't matter how
long you're going to be in the film room as
long as you get it."
Oh, if it was only so simple. Leak, re-
garded for years as a connoisseur of film
study, is still cultivating his affinity for his
two more challenging projects: becoming a
vocal leader and proving he can run in the
Project A is a full go, or at least close
to it. During spring, Meyer dared Leak to
speak up during practices and in the lock-
er room, to make his presence felt by more
than perfect spirals. And a naturally quiet
Leak did, because had he refused, Meyer
would have been just fine benching him.
"When I first got here, he wouldn't
say anything at all, but Coach Meyer has
gotten him to say a lot of stuff," freshman
quarterback Josh Portis said. "Meyer keeps
telling him, 'Be more, more, more vocal. Be
more social.' If he doesn't do that, we're
going to suffer."
Project B is still up for debate unless
you're Leak or one of his coaches.
The junior, often criticized for his in-
ability to run in the open field, insists he
can do just that. Quarterbacks coach and
offensive coordinator, Dan Mullen, sug-
gests something even more surprising:
Leak packs more horsepower than quar-
terback Alex Smith, Utah's Mr. Do-It-All
last season and first overall pick in the
2005 NFL Draft.
"Alex carried the ball about eight times
a game. I see Chris doing the same, maybe
more," Mullen said. "He's a little I.,:ii-
runner than Alex. Alex was moTr ...-r
drop-back guy. Chris is more of an .thlIc1,,
While no one doubts whether !,,: ha-
the sharpest trigger on the team, r-crr.-
quarterbacks Portis, Gavin Dickc, aind
Cornelius Ingram all sport better v heil-
than Leak. And they let him know it.
"We joke about him in, the film room:
sometimes," Portis said. "We're like, 'Can
you take that to the house?' and everybody
looks at him and we start laughing."
As for how he stacks up against Smith's
college game, Meyer only sees one dispar-
"The only difference is that Alex never
had any experience," Meyer said. "Chris
has had two years of experience in the SEC
and in the shotgun, so we're going."
An exhausted Leak trots off the practice
field and almost walks past his compli-
mentary Gatorade when linebacker Todd
McCullough jogs from behind and inter-
rupts a discussion about the upcoming
"I've tried to help his throwing mo-
tion," says McCullough with a straight
.face. "We went back to basics of our
middle school days."
An even more serious Leak responds,
"Yeah, Todd's been working with me. He's
been keeping my shoulder right."
Laughter ensues. .Joking aside, Leak has
improved his throwing motion. He reloads
just a little quicker, fires just a little faster.
It's one of the new wrinkles in his game.
You see, this season, it will be about
doing things differently about breaking
runs, about yelling at teammates, about
winning close games. At the very least,
it will be about trying to do things differ-

Dickey takes receiving lessons
By FARZAD SAFI
Alligator Staff Writer
Gavin Dickey spent an entire
spring playing left field for the UF
This fall, he could be playing
left out when football coach Urban
Meyer unveils his offense.
When fall training camp began
on Aug. 8, Dickey wasn't standing
beside Chris Leak wearing the red
quarterback practice jersey. Instead,
the former No. 2 quarterback found
familiar targets -- receivers Chad
Jackson and Andre Caldwell as
his new positional buddies.
And less than a week before
the season begins, Dickey is still
spending the majority of practice
lining up as a receiver.
"The Gavin Dickey experiment
is going really well," Meyer said.
"He's going to see some time at
wide receiver this year, but he will
still have a chance to compete for
the backup spot at quarterback."
Meyer has moved Dickey to
wide receiver because of a team
need. The offense uses five wide
sets, and the team only has four
receivers with experience: Jackson,
Caldwell, Dallas Baker and Jemalle
"Gavin is the next best athlete,"
Meyer said. "He's a guy who you
know will handle the ball well."
Just because the 5-foot-11, 205-
pound Tallahassee native has size
and speed, however, does not mean
that the transition to the new posi-
tion has been an easy one.
"It's extremely challenging,"
Dickey said. "The hardest part is
learning all the small things; learn-
ing how to use your hands and
coming in and out of routes."
Wide receivers coach Billy
Gonzales recalls Dickey's early
struggles as he adapted to catching
balls as opposed to throwing them.
"The big misconception is that
anyone can play wide receiver
because it's a simple position,"
Gonzales said. "The first two days
of practice, he was cramping up
and having problems getting his
body used to running as much as
the receiver position entails."
Dickey lost conditioning time
with the team during the spring
and early summer due to his obli-
gations to the baseball team.
Although he is not as in tune
as the other receivers, he has im-
pressed coaches with his drive and
"The man hasn't had a break,"
SEE DICKEY, PAGE 18
BREAK OUT TIME
CHAD JACKSON, WR: Last year, they called
him "Big Play Chad." This year,
S' his teammates might just call him
S p-i. "Numbers," because that's exactly
what he'll put up in the spread
offense. As UF's No. 1 receiver
and potentially lethal H-back, he
should score from all angles and
the SEC will take notice.
DALLAS BAKER, WR: Every season has been
-.-. Groundhog's Day for Baker, who
iN has seemingly never played up to
^"y his potential. Well, it's finally Feb.
-.I 3 in Gator Country and Baker is
it- ready to make his junior season
count. Coaches have been raving
About Baker since spring and will
take advantage of his length in the end zone.
RAY MCDONALD, DE: The former defensive
tackle started showing signs last
season when he recorded two
sacks against Florida State. Now
that the Gators will be blitzing,
McDonald is going to have a blast.
His sack totals and versatile ath-
leticism could have SEC. teams
shaking by season's end.
KYLE JACKSON, FS: UF's passive defense is
gone, and that could mean big
f things for Mr. Jackson. With Meyer
emphasizing man coverage in-
stead of zone, the speedy safety
should collect a plethora of big hits
s, and interceptions as well.

That is just one of many .
questions that will surface when
two men are ultimately responsible
for one job. There are more ques-
tions remaining. Who should Meyer
go to if the defense is not playing up
to par? What if Strong and Mattison
"The two of us have worked
together before, and there are no
egos involved," Strong said. "We
talk everything out before anything
is said or done with the players. So,
no one guy is -doing things on his
own. It has worked out, and there
have been no problems at all."
The idea o f
co-coordinators may seem strange
to fans, but it is. fairly common in
college football. Coincidentally
enough, offensive-minded coaches
like Meyer are prone to -giving
the defense to two coaches. Mack
Brown at Texas has two defensive
coordinators and so does Steve
Spurrier at South Carolina.
So far, UF's players have enjoyed
having two resources and mentors.

But, if past statistics hold true
for Meyer's offense, Leak's legs

Wynn gives silent treatment
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
What's the difference between a Heisman candidate
and a third-string running back?
Just ask UF's DeShawn Wynn, one of college foot-
ball's most mysterious figures.
The problem is, he won't give you an explanation. He
won't even try.
The player who led the Gators with seven rushing
touchdowns in 2003 hasn't spoken to the media in a
year. Now, as the talented-but-troubled Wynn battles
for UF's coveted tailback job -- and could possibly drop
as low as third-string -- his story grows stranger.
When Wynn compiled gaudy statistics in 2003, he
had no problem chatting with reporters. Last year, dur-
ing his training camp battle with Ciatrick Fason, Wynn
still found time to speak with the media.
But ever since Fason became No. 1 last year, Wynn
"Since I first got here, I've never seen [Wynn] talk to
one media person," said junior tailback Skyler Thornton,
also in the mix for the starting job. "I guess it's how he
likes to do things. t's his decision, that's DeShawn."
After his breakout debut, Wynn suffered through a
miserable sophomore slump. Former coach Ron Zook
- who rarely criticized players publicly accused Wynn
of harboring a negative work ethic.
Then Wynn suffered a groin injury, removing him
from the picture.,
This spring, the work ethic issues resurfaced. While
many of Zook's troubled players reformed under Urban
Meyer, Wynn was still garnering criticism.
Early in training camp, rumors swirled that Wynn
could be suspended for the season opener for violating
team policy. Meyer has never addressed the issue.
"I don't know what goes on in DeShawn's mind to
make him do what he does, but DeShawn is just going
to be DeShawn Wynn," said freshman Markus Manson,
the third tailback vying for the starting spot. "Whenever
he's around me, he's a cool guy, and he's like a big
brother to me. I look up to him in a
lot of situations.
"I don't know what triggers
DeShawn to do [certain things],
but only God knows antd i
Lately, Meyer has praised
Wynn, but he hasn't gone as
far as to appoint him the top
guy. Still, no one denies the
talent and potential Wynn
brings to the Gators.
That's what makes his case
"DeShawn brings pow-
er, speed and anything
you ask, DeShawn will
bring it," Manson
said. "He's just
real good. He's
the most focused
and the most ex- f
perienced out of
all of us, so we
expect him to
do big things."
Wynn focused, UF
running back coach \
Stan Drayton sees it a
Drayton said Wynn is moving
in the right direction, but still searching for the will
to become a star player.
"DeShawn has the talent to be one of the best backs
in this country, no question," Drayton said. "The thing
that DeShawn needs to work on is looking himself in the
mirror and saying, 'hey, I want to be that guy'
"There's nothing wrong it's a conditioning of the
mind. I don't know if he has the mindset of a Heisman
candidate right now. He definitely has the ability."
Urban attempts to live up to papal namesakes through gridiron glory
They say.the name makes the man, and
no college football headliner enters
the 2005 season with a more unusual
name than Urban Meyer.
So before you attempt to pick Urban
Meyer's brain, you must take a trip back
in time not to Bowling Green, Utah or
Cincinnati, but to Ashtabula, Ohio.
Flux capacitor on. Set dials for 1964.
We've arrived in the Meyer home, where
Bud and Gisela stare at a baby book, attempt-
ing to name their unborn son.
The Meyers decide to take the religious
root, choosing the unusual-but-historical
Now, I'm no Catholic. But I am a history
buff, so I decided to analyze the eight popes
named Urban in a scientific attempt to dis-
cover if Meyer's name has indeed helped him
elevate to such prestigious status.
There's little surviving data about Pope
Urban I who reigned from 222-230 A.D., but
we can make a clear connection between
Urban II, the most famous of the bunch, and
Urban II couldn't enter Rome for years
because the city was torn apart by civil war
and misery (Gainesville, Ron Zook era), so
the Pope spent three years wandering across
southern Italy (Bowling Green, Utah).
Urban III would reign for just two years
-in the 1100s, but the Catholic Encyclopedia
describes Urban IV as "active, capable, self-
reliant and always ready for any work that
A Sienese ambassador said of Urban IV,
"There has been no Pope since Alexander nll
so energetic in word and deed." Urban Meyer,
already crowned the king of motivation and
morals, may very well be the modem day
clone or even reincarnation of Urban IV.
Urban V set out on a mission to improve
the material and moral conditions of Rome,
'nearly the identical mission of Urban Meyer.
Historians recall how
the "discipline of the
clergy was restored"
under Urban V. How
many times have you
heard the word disci-
pline, and Urban Meyer,
in the same sentence?
The similarities remain
Of all the Urbans,
No. VI suffered the
most terrible fate poisoning at the hands of
the Romans. Replace Romans with Volunteers,
and UF fans can only hope that Urban Meyer
doesn'tsuffer a similar demise.
.Urban VI's entire reign is considered a di-
sastrous failure, but hey Ringo Starr proved
not everyone in a glamorous crew- is truly a
Urban VII's reign lasted shorter than
Mike Price at Alabama 12 days to be exact
- although he did forbid chamberlains to wear
silk garments to dissolve jealousy between the
rich and poor. It sounds a lot like Urban Meyer
not allowing his players to wear the Gators'
emblem this summer until the players truly
earn the title.
It's been 361 years since any Urban held the
coveted Pope title, and Urban VIII nearly died
before becoming the final Urban.
Sick and near death, Urban VIII asked the
man upstairs to let him die if his pontification
wouldn't be right for the church. (He lived). If
UF ever falls on hard times, couldn't you see
the humble Urban Meyer telling Jeremy Foley
.and Bernie Machen to do what's right for the
program? OK, maybe that's a stretch.
What does this all mean? Well, Bud and
Gisela seemed to pick a fitting name for
their son, and in the end, the name may have
shaped the man.
Now, we must ponder could Meyer's
final mission land him the title of Urban IX?

Building bonds to boost success
By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
Sopchoppy, Fla., population 426, isn't exactly South
Beach. It's not even Gainesville not even close.
There you'll find exactly zero traffic lights, one four-way
stop put in about two years ago and there isn't a Wal-
Mart in sight. But there is a pond on Walter Tartt's farm
where you might find some Gators.
'-' When offensive lineman Jim Tartt returned to his
family's homestead, bordering the Apalachicola National
Forest in June, he and the all-time odd quartet of linebacker
Brandon Siler, long snapper James Smith and offensive
lineman Lance Butler found a place to rest, relax
and catch some frogs one warm ri.:,i riun:
"That's a long snapper, an crtEn- ,-
tackle, an offensive guard and a
middle linebacker, all in a pond at 4
o'clock at night fishing for frogs,
said Siler with a hint of disbelief.
"We fried and ate them the next
The expedition meant
more than a belly full of
fine cuisine. It was a much- .
needed exercise in trust for a '
team that lacked so much one

to Siler, not a crew so motley co.1ld I

ent. That kind of stuff speaks for itself when you talk about
Bonding and camaraderie are pillars of Urban Meyer's
"family man" approach to coaching. But they are a means to
an end, a step toward a more desired goal: trust.
According to Meyer, much of his previous offensive suc-
cess at Bowling Green and Utah was predicated on the fact
that his players didn't think on the field. They didn't need to.
Meyer utilizes a Clockwork Orange-like program minus
the eyelid clamps, of course drilling his system into play-
ers' heads until on-field execution becomes a mere reflex.

2005 UF linebackers creating a more positive image
By FARZAD SAFI
Alligator Staff Writer
After just one season at UF,
Brandon Siler earned the reputa-
tion as one of the SEC's top line-
backers. And while he continues to
make headlines this preseason, he's
breaking out of the UF linebacker
-.A- a couple of years ago, it
seemed like Channing Crowder
and Taurean Charles would be-
come UF's explosive 1-2 linebacker
punch. But both players' careers
in Gainesville were marred by
clt-lh.c-ieiid issues. Crowder's
troubles were mostly misdemeanor
incidents, and after two years at
UF he jumped to the NFL. Charles-
wasn't so fortunate his infamous
keg-tossing incident forced him out
of UF and to Division I-AA Bethune
Now, many consider UF's line-
backing corps featuring Siler and
Earl Everett the best at UF this
decade. And with Urban Meyer in
charge, the group has stayed away
from nightclubs and keg parties,
avoiding trouble at all cost.
"We don't have a single trouble-
maker this year, thank goodness,"
Siler said. "Coach Meyer has been
preaching that since he got here.
Not one player has gotten in trou-
ble, and he deserves all the credit."
The loss of Crowder was per-
haps the biggest on defense, but a
closer look at last year's statistics
explains why none of the players
are concerned about depth.
Siler and outside linebacker Earl
Everett led the team in tackles last
year with 77 and 74, respectively.
The two were also first and second
on the team in most plays over the
"This is a younger crew than
last year," Siler said. "But Earl and
I played just as much as Channing.
Channing was a good player, but I
don't think that we will miss him."
Siler has already impressed
Meyer with his off-season work-
outs. The Orlando native spent his
summer mostly in the weight room
bulking from 218 to 240 pounds.
"All the good things you hear
about Brandon Siler are true,"
Meyer said. "He's a playmaker. I've
watched the highlight tapes from
last year and this is the same guy."
Most Gators fans are probably
wishing this year's team could have
had Everett, Siler, and Crowder
playing together. However, some
players are just fine with Crowder's
"Channing Crowder was a ren-
egade on the field and off the field,"
defensive end Jeremy Mincey said.
"When things hit the fan .last sea-
son, you could tell it was all about
"Brandon Siler has gotten a lot
of fame and he's still humble. I
respect him as a human being for
that. I respect that a lot."
While both Siler and Everett
were named to the preseason All-
SEC defensive team, it's the players
behind them that worry Meyer.
"Earl Everett, Brandon Siler, and
[often-injured] Todd McCullough
have been phenomenal," Meyer
said. "Those guys better stay
healthy, because there isn't a whole
lot else at linebacker."
After the starting group,
which remains shaky because of
McCullough's knee problems, UF
has 17 linebackers on its roster.
Of the 17, just one player has ever
started a game.
A coaching move made this
spring, however, has a former
offensive starter switching to line-
backer in the hopes of shoring up
Former starting fullback Billy
Latsko was moved to linebacker
because Meyer's offensive schemes
don't call for a fullback.
"At first, I didn't think it would
work out," Latsko said. "I had
played fullback for two years and
I was happy there. Now, I'm re-
ally enjoying hitting guys instead
of taking the hits."
Latsko is currently second on the
depth chart at outside linebacker,
Charles' dismissal and
Crowder's departure caused the
unexpected -shortage of experi-
enced linebackers. The linebackers,
however, have banded together
and like to think of themselves as a
few good men.
"We linebackers hang out all the
time," freshman Jon Demps said.
"Before two-a-days, Brandon and I
went bowling. We just try to have
