Katrina brings devastation to Gulf Coast

Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

As New Orleans faces the after-
math of one of the most devastating
hurricanes in its history, UF's Disaster
Plan Committee is working to ensure
that both the university and sur-
rounding areas are prepared to cope
with future natural disasters that may
target Gainesville.
Since the conclusion of last year's
hurricane season, the Disaster Plan
Committee has learned which areas
'.." of campus are most susceptible to
.....' hurricane damage.
rs" "We've had to make a few changes
s 4 since last year was such an active hur-
ricane year," committee Chairman
William Properzio said. "We now
have two ongoing grants, one to pre-
vent flooding around the Lake Alice
area and one to put new windows in
Bryant Hall."
Although the Federal Emergency
Management Agency provides
funding to the state of Florida for
distribution during natural disasters,
UF has not been reimbursed for all
the costs it incurred after last year's
hurricanes.
"Last year UF reported an inven-
tory of $14 million in damages, and


not all of that can be recovered,"
Properzio said, adding that some
university-owned research stations in
southern areas of the state were badly
damaged by last year's storms.
"We're still in the process of filing
for the damages, and we anticipate
getting a third of the total cost back,"
he said.
In spite of UF's losses, Properzio
said the school is well-prepared to
deal with future inclement weather.
"If we are going
.. to have some kind of
."-* event, the university
will make available
food and resources for
H ur ri ane students living on and
Katrina off campus," he said.
"Last year we only
shut down for one day, but if we were
having to shut down for an extended
period of time this year, adjustments
would be made."
While students are advised to
remain in their residence halls dur-
ing hurricanes, UF also shelters
Gainesville and Alachua County
residents at the Reitz Union and the
Southwest Recreation Center.
However, Properzio said storm
shelters remain one of UF's biggest
concerns during the hurricane season.

Gas bill up for talk


By BRIDGET CAREY
Alligator Staff Writer
bcarey@alligator.org
Tonight, one student sena-
tor hopes to take the first step
to tell the Florida Legislature
how rising gas prices are affect-
ing the cost of living at UF.
Sen. Ramon Looby will
present the Student Senate
with a resolution supporting
the end of the Florida Motor
Fuel Marketing Practices Act.
The act makes it unlawful
for gas to be sold below cost
and, according to the resolu-
tion, "restricts competition in
a market where foreign oil is
unfairly driving the price of
fuel to record highs."
And with the price of gas
soaring, "university students
are suffering," Looby said.
Undergraduate students are
expected to spend about $400


a year for local transportation
and gas, according to the es-
timated cost of living on UF's
admissions Web site.
The Motor Fuel Relief Act
was filed last week in the legis-
lature proposing to end the old
law. If the Student Senate passes
Looby's resolution at tonight's
7:30 meet-
Student ing in
Government Room 282
of the Reitz
Union, a letter will be sent to the
Florida House stating that the
UF student body encourages
them to vote in favor of ending
the old law, which would be in
effect until June 2006.
Looby said his resolution
and research were conceived
before knowledge of possible
effects Hurricane Katrina could
have on fuel prices.
The Associated Press contrib-
uted to this report.

Bikes get campus


traffic tickets too


* IN THE FIRST FIVE DAYS
OF SCHOOL, UPD ISSUED
82 BIKE-RELATED TICKETS.

By ELIZABETH HILLAKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Just because some students
ride on two wheels instead of
four doesn't make them exempt
from traffic citations on the UF
campus.
The University Police
Department issued .82 bike-relat-
ed tickets between the first day of
school and Sunday.
"We've already given quite
a few," UPD officer Darren
Sanders said. "Traffic violations
are enforced throughout the
year."
When a ticket is issued,
students have three options,
Sanders said. They can pay the
ticket, which is usually more than
$100; they can appeal the ticket;
or, if it is the first offense, they
can attend a Bicycle Traffic Safety
Education Course within 30 days
to receive a certificate that voids
the citation.
"It's just trying to get people
in compliance with the law,"
Sanders said. "With the number
of bikes on campus, we- feel like
enforcing the law is just some-
thing we have to do."
The course takes about an
hour to an hour and a half and
is held at UPD headquarters.
Tuesday at 7 p.m. or Saturdays
at 9 a.m.
Holly Thomas, the officer who -
teaches the bicycle-safety course,
said students should call the
police department early because
classes already are beginning to
fill up.
"There are a few students who
think this is a waste of time,"
Thomas said.
"But a lot of students say, 'I
didn't know that' when we dis-
cuss bike laws."
On Saturday morning two stu-
dents who had received tickets


during the Summer, five from the
interim between terms and seven
from Fall attended the class.
Those students received tick-
ets for running stop signs, riding
on the .wrong side of the road,
riding at night without lights
and riding their bikes with head-
phones on.
Go Takahashi, an exchange
student from Japan studying
education, received a ticket near
Century Tower two days after he
arrived at UF.
"I didn't know. the rules,"
Takahashi said.
He said he was glad to attend
the class in order to learn them.
Miriah Karcher, a
Public landscape architec-
Safety ture major, agreed
and said, "I was
kind of glad I got it anyway, be-
cause I needed to learn."
Karcher received her ticket
during the summer for riding
in the wrong direction in'a bike
lane.
"I knew it, but I couldn't get
over, and of course there's a cop,"
she said.
Karcher's ticket would have
cost $118 plus three points on her
license, but the class voided both
consequences.
"You've got to treat it like
you're driving a car. I guess the
same rules apply," Karcher said.
Chas Robles, a senior major-
ing in English, works at the
Student Government-sponsored
bike repair shop near the Reitz
Union.
"My experiences with UPD
have been pretty bad," Robles
said.
He said he has heard of stu-
dents receiving speeding tickets
on their bicycles, "which seems a
little ridiculous."
"They seem to enjoy giving
tickets," he added.
For more information,
visit the UPD Web site at
www.police.ufl.edu or call the
community service division at
(352) 392-1409.

Free Your PC promises protection


By CRYSTAL HENRY
Alligator Writer
chenry@alligator.org

Students and residents can cure
what ails their laptops this week with-
out the usual sky-high doctors' bills.
The Florida Free Culture student
organization's first Free Your PC
event, much like SG's Pimp my PC
program, will help UF students,
faculty and staff properly install vi-
rus-scanning software and provide
information about error messages,
ad-ware and computer viruses.
The event will take place on the
Reitz Union North Lawn today and
Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
"Probably the best reason for
students to come out is the security,"
organization co-founder and UF stu-
dent Gavin Baker said.
The organization works to get
people engaged in art, music and
issues such as copyright law, free
software and access to technological
information, Baker said..


In addition to those services, Free
Your PC will offer computer owners
open-source software, free Creative
Commons-licensed music, such as
the Beastie Boys, as well as games,
stickers, buttons and information to
help protect their computers.
"Probably the best reason
for students to come out is
the security. But everyone in
the community is welcome."
Gavin Baker
Florida Free Culture co-founder

Open-source software such as
Creative Commons music and
Mozilla's Firefox Web browser can be
redistributed and modified legally.
Firefox, Baker said, is known in
the technology community to be a
more secure browser than Microsoft's
Internet Explorer.
He said visitors give testimonials
about how Firefox has worked for


them. The best stories will be reward-
ed with Firefpx hats and T-shirts.
Although everyone is encour-
aged to bring their laptops, only UF
students, faculty and staff will receive
free McAfee VirusScan, and the vol-
unteers will only install software on
Windows computers, Baker said.
The .UF Help Desk and IT
Security Team will secure and clean
laptop computers of viruses and in-
stall programs.
Help Desk account specialist
Sheel Amin said that up to 30 min-
utes of free laptop service is nor-
mally offered to UF students, faculty
and staff.
Help Desk staff also offer unlimit-
ed over-the-phone technical support
to install software available to UF
students and staff, such as McAfee
VirusScan, and to solve other prob-
lems, he said.
UF's software CD is available at
theUF Bookstore for $2, and the same'
software is available to download for
free at www.software.ufl.edu.

Plug pulled on hot swimming spot


By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org
Making your way to Devil's Hole
is tricky. On the way down the 80-foot
descent, there are roots, ledges and slick
clay to navigate, plus piles of old burg-
ers, beer cans and broken glass.
But now it's illegal to visit at all.
The popular swimming hole's owner,
Timothy Knight, issued a no-trespassing
order to the Putnam County Sheriff's
Department in July, and an overabun-
dance of garbage may be the reason.
"I can't even tell you how many trail-
er loads full* of trash get carried out of
there on a regular basis," said Knight's
roommate, who refused to give her
name because she said she feared retri-
bution from former sinkhole visitors.
,Knight, who is vaca-
Student tioning in Ohio, was un-
Life available for comment.
Rick Nelson, 22, is a na-
tive of Interlachen, where Devil's Hole
is located. He said he has visited the
cloudy sinkhole his entire life.
Nelson said many other lakes in the
area have closed to the public recently.
"This is the only hole we got left out
here for us kids," he said. "That's what
draws us here."
There are two diving platforms at
Devil's Hole, the smaller one comparable
in height to an Olympic board. There are
also three rope swings and a slide ending
in the water. Locals said the hole extends
to the aquifer and that its waters are 69
degrees all year.
Capt. Steve Rose of the sheriff's
department said officers are giving
warnings to trespassers and arresting
repeat offenders. He said they have not
encountered much resistance.
"Unfortunately, if they've been using
that particular place for swimming or just
congregating, they're going to have to
find some other place," Rose said. "They
have to abide by [Knight's] wishes."
Rose said when Knight bought the
land four years ago, he told police he
wasn't concerned about trespassers. But
about six weeks ago, Knight authorized
the enforcement, citing an agreement
he'd signed with Nextel, which is build-
ing a tower on Knight's 50-acre property.
But Knight's roommate said the real
reason for the order was the trash.

Editorial


Sun woes

New student newspaper

an expensive brochure
t's time.
After giving the Gainesville Sun's new student edition,
creatively titled The Sun, more than a week to figure itself
out, the Editorial Board has decided to sink its teeth in and tear
that sucker apart.
Let's start at the beginning, with the quaint notion of conflict
of interest: Sun coordinator Janine Young Sikes has chosen to al-
low fraternity and sorority members to report on Greek events.
While the stories have thus far been non-controversial, cot-
ton-candy fluff, we just can't understand why a newspaper
would choose to do this. These writers will be biased, whether
it's conscious or not. Sikes formerly covered UF issues for The
Gainesville Sun, and she's well aware of the line she's crossing.
Is it a joke? Is she trying to throw us off by blurring such obvious
ethical issues in The Sun's first week?
No newspaper should wobble into this questionable terri-
tory.
And talking about the whole ethical integrity idea, we're a
little confused as to why Sun staff recently told UF faculty they
wouldn't be covering serious stories about SG and the UF ad-
ministration.
We shudder to think what gems would fall through the
cracks if the Alligator took that stance.
So why would The Sun staff preemptively decide to cut out
the stories that should make up the bulk of its paper?
We can only guess that since SG pays for the issues, the edi-
tors are uncomfortable with investigating controversial stories
concerning their benefactors.
We remember when Sikes was a hardass reporter covering
UF, unveiling issues by demanding public records and scram-
bling for the dirt. Has she transformed into a big soft teddy bear,
with a heart full of love for all those budding politicians and
hardworking administrators?
These editorial decisions all trace back to the biggest
problem of all: The Sun may have some student writers, but
the Gainesville Sun staff have all the power. This effectively
makes it akin to The Gainesville Sun's other recent venture, The
Gainesville Guardian. While the Guardian is a black weekly
run by white publishers, The Sun is a student section run by
the middle-aged. We'll throw them one bone: Much of the staff
used to be Alligator reporters back in the 1970s.
That's right we taught them their stuff. Maybe we should
be partially blamed for this sticky moral mess.
Finally, The Sun has filled many of its pages with Associated
Press stories. We know there are many journalism students
waiting for an opportunity to write. However, instead of us-
ing the students they purport to be helping, Sun editors have
decided to give them only half the space in the "student" publi-
cation. And those stories that are written by students tend to be
"how-to" pieces, like where to catch buses, rather than timely
hard news stories.
After all this talk about UF needing another university-fo-
cused paper, The Sun doesn't even begin to cover more campus
news than the Alligator.
And those campus stories they do run tend to overlap with
Alligator coverage.
That would be fine if the stories were investigative; compe-
tition could make both papers better. Instead, they're all press
releases.
SG paid $46,000 for a giant brochure with a circulation of
only 2,500. That's money out of your Activity & Service fees.
So the Editorial Board has one last thing to say to UF stu-
dents: The Sun is a city paper tapping the student body for
money and circulation with a flimsy student section. Its focus
isn't the university.
The Alligator is a student-run paper that covers university
news, with thousands of absolutely free copies on campus.

The. first week of classes has
come and gone, and it has
driven home how hectic life
at UF can be.
Between huge lines at the book-
stores, traffic jams everywhere and
packed bars, Gainesville is over-
crowded every Fall as the university
returns to full attendance.
This large increase in population
is in no way a surprise; it occurs cy-
clically every year with the start of
the Fall semester.
In light of the reliability of this
overcrowding, it is amazing that
the city of Gainesville would wait
until now to start construction on
Southwest Second Avenue. More
than anything else, timing should be
the number one priority in planning
the construction of Second Avenue.
All summer long the city has en-
joyed decreased traffic, but this road
improvement project did not begin
until the roads in this town were
guaranteed to be oversaturated with
cars.
This both further exacerbates
our existing traffic problem and
increases the danger to drivers and
construction workers alike. It is only
a week into the new semester, and
planning abominations like this
seem to be plaguing the university
left and right.
The scheduling of the Jehovah's
Witnesses convention for this past
weekend, when 7,500 members
flooded Gainesville's streets, is
another example of these planning
problems.
Gainesville and UF seem to be
becoming a bastion of bureaucratic
nightmares as of late. Between these
scheduling follies, the wasting of
time and money on slogans and the


Le.ter to the Editor
Morning-after pill stalled again
Screwed again. Last week the
Food and Drug Administration an-
nounced it again will delay a deci-
sion on whether the morning-after
pill will be available for over-the-
counter sales, this time for 60 days.
For the past two years, the FDA has
been using any excuse it could think
of to stall this decision.
Now FDA Commissioner Lester
Crawford claims the FDA needs
more public input before he can
decide on the morning-after pill. But
for four years the FDA has ignored a
citizen's petition requesting the pill
be sold without a prescription; it
has ignored the American Medical
Association, the New England
Journal of Medicine and other main-
stream medical organizations that
say the pill is safe.
It has ignored the major news-
papers all over the country which
have run editorials in favor of over-
the-counter sales. It has ignored the
more than 3,000 women across the
nation who have pledged to commit
civil disobedience by giving out the
morning-after pill.
What more public opinion does
the FDA need?
The morning-after pill is a safe, ef-
fective form of birth control that can

Scott Gilton anti-alcohol
Speaking Out crusades, it
seems many
branches of UF's administration
and the city council have gotten
involved in their own little worlds,
forgetting what makes this campus
and town so prosperous and enjoy-
able: the student body.
Instead of getting caught up in
committee organization and the hir-
ing of consultants, the Powers That
Be would do well to include the stu-
dent body in their activities.
With over 40,000 voices, I'm sure
a brilliant but free suggestion could
have been made regarding a new
slogan for UF during the past year.
Instead of taking an adversarial
approach to alcohol control in a
town that admittedly does have a
drinking problem, comb the campus
for help from within the student
body.
Host a forum consisting primar-
ily of students instead of holding
one where outsiders control most of
the dialogue.
And when you're planning road
construction projects, use the blessed
easing of traffic during the summer
to get the work done in a much less
hectic manner.
While those of us who' make
up the student body may not be as
permanent in Gainesville as the city
council and the UF administration,
we still deserve to be considered in
the logistics of this town.
A greater inclusion of the student
body in the logistical planning for
both the city and the campus will
make things smoother for everyone
and will increase both productivity
and goodwill for all.

prevent pregnancy, but which is most
effective within the first 24 hours.
Right now if a woman needs
the morning-after pill, she has to
schedule a doctor's appointment,
pay for it out of pocket, take time off
work or school, call around to find a
pharmacy that stocks it and wait in
a pharmacy line before she can get
and take the pill and this is the
best-case scenario!
The FDA wants citizen input?
Let's give Commissioner Crawford
what he's asking for and then some.
The National Organization for
Women has called for a National
Day of Action today. To show
your support, call Commissioner
Crawford today and tell him to
make the morning-after pill avail-
able over-the-counter for all women.
You can leave him a message at 301-
827-2410 during business hours.
We will not go back to the pre-
Roe v. Wade days of illegal, coat-
hanger abortions or tolerate further
restrictions on our access to birth
control. We will continue to fight
for thel morning-after pill over-the-
counter.
Make the morning-after pill over-
the-counter for all women now!

Re-branding sweeps UF

LOGO, from page 1

redesign was commissioned, which will be accompanied by a
new slogan: "Building the Pride in every Gator!"
"This year we want to effectively use our marketing," he
said. "We want to have a message to send to everybody. We
want to get that slogan out. It's really important to us that
people feel pride in calling themselves a Gator."
SG utilizes an agency that finds out what students are view-
ing and reading, then directs SG officials to the right outlet to
get the. most exposure.
"We're going to change up our ad every single month when
new things come up," Goldberg said. "Every month we're
showing the opportunities for students to get involved. I want
people to know exactly what SG is and what it's about. I want
them to know how they can get involved."
SG's older sibling, the UF administra-
Student tion, is expecting to spend about $500,000
Oovernnment this year on its re-branding, which includes
the creation of single-column ads, banners,
television commercials and the slogan that calls UF the "foun-
dation for the Gator Nation."
But Associate Vice President for Marketing and University
Relations Joe Hice said the UF administration's marketing re-
vamp can't be compared to SG's campaign.
"It's really hard to compare because the campaign with the
university is to be used on network television," Hice said. "If
you're going to produce material for those venues, the quality
standards that you are dealing with are tremendously more
expensive. You have to deliver a really high-quality piece or
you come off looking like a second-rate university. You have
'to be on par with the Fortune 500 companies that your ads are
seen with."
Hice said students are one of the biggest benefactors of UF's
new flavor because they increase the value of the UF degree.
"UF is more well-known and perceived in a better light"
with the new advertising, he said.
Hice said the new message is in line with UF President
Bernie Machen's quest to make UF a top-notch institution.
"It just doesn't make sense that we don't have a state uni-
versity in the top tier," he said. "We want to take this university
to the top. We should be there already."
Hice said he is a fan of SG's new economical logo.
"It says a lot," he said. "I'm not an art critic. (But) I think the
graphics are simple and easy to understand."
Hice said SG deserves the attention: "In the past they
haven't gotten [it]," he said.

Many parts of UF's hurricane plan uncertain


KATRINA, from page 1

"One bigger problem is acting
as host to a community," Properzio
said. "If Tampa Bay was going to be
hit, they Would be told to evacuate
north, and we would be inundated."
In addition, many UF buildings
would be unable to withstand the
forces of more powerful hurricanes.
"We would struggle to have
enough [adequate] space for ev-
eryone," Properzio said. "The
O'Connell Center would work if
it was just heavy winds, but with
direct impact the roof would not be
strong enough."


Despite safety concerns, some
students choose to remain in
Gainesville through the storms.
"Last year UF reported an
inventory of $14 million
in damages, and not all of
that can be recovered."
William Properzio
Disaster Plan Committee chairman

Sophomore Lakeena Gillion,
who lived on campus during last
year's hurricanes, said she didn't
have any negative experiences be-
cause of the storms.


"Some dorms lost power, but
mine didn't, and maintenance did
a good job cleaning everything up,"
she said. "In the Broward area there
was a big tree lying there that they
came and picked up quickly."
Michael Clowe, another UF
sophomore and a former resident
of Tolbert Hall, said several factors
influenced his decision to remain
on campus during last year's hur-
ricanes.
"I stayed here last year because
the hurricanes weren't too bad,"
he said. "My parents got hit worse
at home, and the dorm didn't lose
power; but now that I live off cam-
pus, I'd leave and go home."

that we will take the lot for football
game days," said Melissa Stuckey,
assistant athletic director for UAA
Operations and Facilities. "We have
been putting these up in all of our
lots for the last 10 years or so."
Residents also are warned of the
towing policy with notices posted in
their dorms' common areas or tucked
under their windshield wipers.
The Gator Boosters are given the
Orange and Red-1 lots for home
football events.
"The obvious reality is we have
a destination, and a lot of people are
trying to get to it," said Scott Fox,
interim director for Transportation
and Parking Services. "Because of
the proximity, the parking lot is
reserved."
UF students and faculty mem-
bers must find alternative parking
lots or be towed.
On "We are trying to
Campus make the visitors feel
welcomed," Fox said.
"Depending on the circumstance
we'll relocate [the cars] because it's
more convenient for us."
Stuckey said tow trucks are
used to move the cars to the grassy
area in front of the stadium west of
Murphree Hall. For three straight
weekends -starting Saturday,
Murphree area residents must park
in other lots during home football
games to avoid being towed.
"On campus, there are about
6,500 [parking spaces] total, and 136
spaces are located at Murphree,"
Stuckey said.
Parking spaces in the Murphree
,area open to Gator Boosters at 8 a.m.
Saturday on game day.
"We will put notices on the cars,"
Fox said. "They're informed in a
number of ways."
LaDaun Jackson, a linguistics and
communication sciences and disor-
ders sophomore, and a resident of
Murphree Hall, was unaware of the
UAA parking restrictions in her area.
"I have to live here and it makes
me feel cheated and upset," Jackson
said. "UF provides decals, but they
don't provide enough spots for resi-
dents, and the parking situation isn't
that great here to begin with."
Jackson also said she felt the no-
tices and warnings were insufficient,
adding that the university is in need
of parking reform, because no one
wants to be forced to give up park-
ing spaces.
Stuckey said UAA worked hard
to maintain communication and
minimize parking conflicts during
home football games.
"We highly encourage .people to
take the shuttles," Stuckey said. "We
run shuttles from commuter lots
and garage nine."
More than 92,000 people attend
UF home football games, and the
parking situation has not been any
different for the past three seasons,
Stuckey said.
"Parking is just one aspect of it,"
Stuckey said. "It's, not guaranteed
parking: it' a a ailable parking."

Moore joins crowded running back competition


* GATORS STILL SEARCHING
FOR A STARTING TAILBACK.

By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
aabramsom@alligator.org

Urban Meyer would be one
happy coach if his three-player race
for starting tailback would shrink
to one.


Instead, Meyer just added a.
fourth'name to the mix.
With juniors DeShawn Wynn
and Skyler Thornton as well as red-
shirt freshman Markus Manson all
vying for the starting gig, it seemed
logical that true freshman Kestahn
Moore would redshirt this season or
receive little playing time.
But just days before the season
opener against Wyoming, Meyer
and running backs coach Stan


Drayton praised Moore, making the
tailback picture that much cloudier.
"[Moore] came out from day one
and worked his tail off," Drayton
said. "He wasn't intimidated by any
upperclassmen, he had a blue collar,
lunch pail mentality. Whatever I
asked him to do he did it. To be hon-
est with you, the older guys learned
from him."
On Monday, Meyer even sug-
gested that Moore could start


against Wyoming, saying that the
freshman could be on the field for
the first play from scrimmage.
"[UF] recruited me for a reason,"
Moore said. "They knew what I
could do." '
While this could be fantastic
news for Moore, it speaks to a larger
problem for the Gators.
No tailback is truly standing out
from the rest of the pack like Ciatrick
Fason did a year ago, so one of the


most crucial positions on the team
remains wide open. :"
"I'm waiting for someone to step
up to the podium and say that 'I'm
the tailback for the University of
Florida. Give me the ball 25 times
and I'll give you a bunch of yards,'"
Meyer said. "I have yet to see that."
Wynn remains the most obvious
candidate because of his natural

The UF volleyball team entered the 2005
season with a myriad of questions.,
Can two new sophomore middle blockers
replace the production of two departed All-
Americans?
Can the team once again be the dominant
force that it was for nearly a decade before
Tennessee snatched a share of the Southeastern
Conference title?
Can Jane Collymore duplicate her 604-kill
season of a year ago?
While it will likely take the duration of the
season for the Gators to
Volleyball provide answers to those
Jacksonville 0 crucial questions,' they
UF 3 made one thing abun-
dantly clear Monday
night: they still have the
ability to dominate opponents.
UF (1-0) opened the season with a 3-0
(30-19, 30-17, 30-20) victory against last
year's Atlantic Sun Tournament champion
Jacksonville (0-4).
"For the first match of the year, it's a really
good starting point," UF coach Mary Wise
said. "The best thing is that now we have vid-
eo. that we can use to show our players, and I
keep thinking back to where we were a year
ago and how much further along this team is,
particularly in the serve-receive."
The Gators improved to 9-1 in season open-
ers at home under Wise, the only loss coming
against Colorado State in 2000.
Although the offensive numbers tend to
leap off of the page, as evidenced by 16 kills
from Jane Collymore and 10 apiece from
Marcie Hampton and Amber McCray, it was
UF's defense that received the most praise
from Wise.
"I think it's players [a year more experi-
enced in] the position and playing next to each
other makes a big difference, too," Wise said.
"I love what Rhian Davis can do coming in off
the bench, she made two consecutive digs, she
gives us some real good foot speed there.
"Jane and Marcie have the potential to rack

1984: Days after Charley Pell announced
his resignation, ESPN reports that Steve
Spurrier signed a contract to coach the

Hall, not Spurrier, would coach UF until '89.


UF deserves


heavy hype
E ver since Chris Leak graced the cover
of Sports Illustrated, the critics have
come out of the woodwork.
How can a 7-5 team jump to No. 3? How
can an unproven coach and offensive system
warrant such lofty expectations? Can the
spread option work against SEC-quality ath-
letes?
Why not? The last time I checked,
Florida recruited from the football bread-
basket as well. The way some people are
talking, you'd think Tennessee had a pipe-
line from Krypton.

Reach Pasadena. But
let's say that Beano
.Cook is right for the
first time since the
Bryan App Earth cooled, and
App-etite Albert is seen lead-
for Receptions ing the Rose Parade.
bapp@alligator.org It wouldn't be that
shocking. Let's ana-
lyze this game-by-game.
Wyoming: This one won't be as close
as some might believe. Just ask Wyoming
coach Joe Glenn, who doesn't really con-
sider his familiarity with Meyer's spread
offense from the coach's Utah days that
much of an advantage.
"Is it an advantage? I think they scored
42 on us last year," Glenn said. "I wouldn't
call it an advantage."
Louisiana Tech: Spurrier defeated
Central Michigan 82-6 in 1997. This could
be worse.
Tennessee: Last season, UF owned the
Vols for nearly 57 minutes in Knoxville.
This season in the Swamp, don't expect
any misuse of. the game clock by refs or
coaches. Gators win.

Meyer: Wynn, others may not play in season opener against Wyoming


FOOTBALL, from page 19
ability, but rumors that he could be
suspended against Wyoming for
team violations continue to swirl.
Meyer said Wynn's status for the
opener is still undetermined.
"I don't know if suspended is the
right word," Meyer said. "I know


that there are going to be some play-
ers who won't play because they
haven't done what they've needed
to do. Is DeShawn one of those? I
don't know yet, I'll have to make
that decision on game day.
"The best players and the most
invested players play. There is still
time for investment."
And with little time remaining


before the season opener, Meyer's
still searching for starters at other
positions.
Four players continue to compete
for the place-kicking job, and Meyer
said Chris Hetland and Eric Nappy
currently sit on top.
Also, UF's reliable punter Eric
Wilbur hasn't returned to form after
suffering a knee injury in training


camp. If he's not ready on Saturday,
Nick Fleming will fill in.
"[Wilbur's] not punting like a big
league punter right now," Meyer
said. "He's close though. At times
he'll smack it."

LEAK MAKES LEAPS: While the tail-
back situation may worry Meyer,
UF's coach finally appears satis-


fied with quarterback Chris Leak.
Meyer has continuously called
out the junior to improve his play
and leadership. On Monday, Meyer
had a different evaluation.
"His leadership skills and his
ability to function in this offense
as a quarterback are like night and
day from the first day we had him at
practice," Meyer said.


McGinnis: Gators played 'shaky'


VOLLEYBALL, from page 19

up big time numbers defensively, and
certainly Rachel [Engel], as evidenced
by her 18 digs."
While the Dolphins entered the match
as the Atlantic Sun Tournament champi-
ons, they had already been swept over
the weekend at Georgia Southern and
their early season woes showed again
Monday they hit for just a .047 percent-
age in contrast to UF's .331.


"I mean Jacksonville was a great
team, I'm not going to take it from
them," Angie McGinnis, who had 41
assists and five kills, said. "It's the begin-
ning of the season for everybody, you
can play a little shaky, I think we played
shaky, too.
"We can play much better than that,
and I think it all comes down to that-this
was the first match, and I think after the
first match, this weekend, we'll be able
to pick it up a lot more."


APP, from page 19

Kentucky: If it were at Rupp Arena, the
Gators might have something to fear.
Alabama: Call your bookie. If the Gators
are going to be "upset," it's going to be in
Tuscaloosa. If 'Bama quarterback Brodie
Croyle can remain healthy for the first time
in two years, the Crimson Tide will be tough
to beat. Still, Croyle's a wild card, and UF's
revamped D-line could call his bluff.
Mississippi State: The Gators will
avenge last season's disgraceful anomaly
in Starkville in a homecoming rout. But
would Foley be on another coaching search
if Meyer pulls a Zook?
LSU: Here's a little quiz. Steve Spurrier :
Ron Zook:: Nick Saban: "
a) Fred Durst, b) Pat Robertson, c) Les


Miles -Answer: C. LSU is talented but un-
proven at quarterback, and UF nearly took
down Saban's Tigers last season.
Georgia: Historically UF's bitch, the
Dawgs will make it 2-16 since '90 in Jax.
Vanderbilt: Vandy has the first-team All-
SEC quarterback in Jay Cutler but no athlet-
ics department.
South Carolina: What has the Golden
Boy gotten himself into? Off-season troubles
have left Spurrier with a third-string run-
ning back and the Gamecocks are facing
three years of NCAA sanctions. The Gators
will enjoy some fried chicken.
FSU: If the Seminoles can't defend Bobby
Bowden Field from Zook's Last Stand,
there's little hope to take the Swamp in
Meyer's first Governor's Cup game.
So, inflated expectations? More like in-
flated criticism.

Family trees spout in UF defense


By ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Staff Writer
eesteban@alligator.org

When UF coach Urban Meyer
first arrived in Gainesville, one of
the main points he stressed was the
need fo establish trust and a family
mentality within the team.
While the trust issue is slowly be-
ing built, the family aspect is already
strong between a pair of freshman
newcomers and a rising sophomore
star.
Linebacker Jon Demps has yet to
run through the Swamp tunnel, but
his excitement about being a Gator is
only amplified when he looks around
the defense and sees two of his third
cousins, Avery Atkins and Brandon
Siler, running alongside him.
"Most of the time you can find me
hanging with B. Siles," Demps said.
"It makes me happier that I'm play-
ing with some of my family on the
field and that is pretty nice."
Demps has spent fall training
camp acclimating himself to a fast-
paced collegiate defense and, while
both he and Atkins have a ways to
go, neither can say that they find it
hard to wake up in the morning.
"It motivates me -having [my
cousins] on the team because we all
share common goals of wanting to
win on this team and one day make
it to the NFL," Atkins said. "Off the
field, I talk to them a lot but we are
all on the same page because of our
closeness."
The Gators are no strangers to
having family on the team. The sec-
ondary boasts the defensive back
duo of twins Jermaine and Tremaine
McCollum. But the newest addi-
tions in Demps and Atkins have the
watchful eye of Siler always ready to
lend a helping hand.
Siler wasn't aware of how far his
family tree reached until Demps' of-
ficial visit to UF shed some light.
"When we were recruiting [Jon] I
didn't even know he was my cousin,
but then I heard that last name
Demps, and I knew it was familiar,"
Siler said. "I found out we were re-
lated down the line and he's real tal-
ented. But Avery is someone that I've
known for a long time, and if I had
a family reunion, he would certainly.
be there."


Tim Casey / Alligator Staff
As a freshman, Avery Atkins may find himself a bit homesick. With cous-
ins Brandon Siler and Jon Demps on the team, the transition is easier.


The Gators' depth chart woes
at linebacker have opened up the
door for any of the true freshman
at the position to come in and play,
but Demps might have the inside
track due to his 6-foot-4, 219-pound
frame.
The pressure may be on the prom-
ising young talent to learn, but the
onus falls on Siler to teach and ex-


plain to his cousins what the rigors.
of college football in the Southeastern
Conference is all about.
"It's kind of a big brother thing
with them because there are the
rules, and then they're family," Siler
said. "I try to teach them on and off
the field, but at the same time they
have to sit back and learn some stuff
on their own."

New starters fill big shoes


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer

How do you account for 639
kills, 297 blocks, a double helping
of All-American status, and a gap-
ing hole in the middle?
That is what former UF middle
blockers Sherri Williams and
Michelle Chatman left behind from
last' season after exhausting their
eligibility.
The duo left some pretty big
shoes to fill. The good news
for the Gators is that their new
middle blocking tandem of
Kisya Killingsworth and Kari
Klinkenborg, at 6-foot-3 and 6-foot-
2 respectively, sport some pretty
large shoes.
The bad news for UF is that
after the Gators' 3-0 victory against
Jacksonville Monday, neither
Killingsworth' nor Klinkenborg
were pleased how they fared indi-
vidually in their starting debut.
"I think I played alright,"
Killingsworth said. "I think I can
play much better and so does this
team and so does [coach] Mary


[Wise]. We all have high expecta-
tions for ourselves and for this
team, so I think that I didn't live up
to it tonight."
Klinkenborg shared similar feel-
ings about her own play.
"I think I got off to a slow start.
I started getting into a rhythm a
little more in the
second game,
but overall
[my perfor-
mance] wasn't
great," she said.
"Hopefully my
next game will
Klinkenborg be better. I feel
like I have been
playing well in practice. I am going
to try to figure it out and do better
for Friday."
Killingsworth had two block
assists, while Klinkenborg tallied
three, but their presence in the
middle seemed, at times, to over-
whelm a Jacksonville team that
struggled to get the ball over their
outstretched arms.
Wise thinks it will take time
before Killingsworth, Klinkenborg


and freshman Kelsey Bowers will
begin to contribute at a high level.
"The middle blocking position
is our least experienced position,"
Wise said. "They have the talent
[and] I predict they are going to be
really good."
. Neither of the sophomores saw
much time at middle blocker last
season, because they were utilized
in other areas of need. Both spent
time playing opposite hitter after
Amber McCray's injury all but
destroyed UF's depth.
* Despite having never played
opposite hitter in her life before
last season, Killingsworth, a true
middle blocker, feels it has a been
a difficult adjustment switching
back to her natural position this
year, sentiments that Klinkenborg
shared.
As for her team's latest perfor-
mance, Wise sees the early season
schedule as a learning experience
for the Gators.
"I think they got their feet wet
and showed us some good things
and showed us areas where they
need improving," Wise said.

Gators add high-profile alumna to soccer staff


By SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Alligator Writer
sdvanness@alligator.org

When three-time All American
Danielle Fotopoulos pounded the
ball over the head of North Carolina


goalkeeper Siri Mullinix more than
six years ago, Fotopoulos gave the
Gators the only goal they would
need to claim the 1998 national
championship.
At that point, she was quickly
running out of contributions to


make to the program.
But on Aug. 10, Fotopoulos
managed to find a new way to give
something to her alma mater.
Fotopoulos, who replaced UF
assistant coach Zac Shaw now the
head coach at Rhode Island gave


The last time Danielle Fotopoulos (left) and UF soccer coach Becky Burleigh hooked up, Fotopoulos was
Burleigh's star player. Now the former All-American returns to UF as Burleigh's assistant.


the UF women's soccer team a high-
profile alumna to add to its assistant
coaching ranks.
"Returning was something
that I maybe wasn't really vocal
about because it wasn't something
I was always sure I wanted to
do," Fotopoulos said. "But this is
definitely something I've had in the
back of my mind for some time now,
and now that it's happening, it's
very exciting and rewarding."
Fotopoulos left the Gators in 1998
after an illustrious collegiate career
and went on to enjoy, a successful
run in the now defunct Women's
United Soccer Association. She re-
mains a member of the U.S. National
Team and helped the squad claim a
gold medal in the 1999 World Cup.
Now Fotopoulos could bring a
level of excitement back to her col-
legiate squad.
"I can bring national exposure
just playing on the national team
and on television," she said. "From
now on the University of Florida
will be mentioned whenever I'm
playing on TV and I think that will
definitely help the program."
Fotopoulos returns to a team
that, while still consistently among
the national elite, has struggled to
meet expectations set after the 1998
national title.
"The team is always one of the
best in the country, and we've al-
ways been held to -that standard,"
Fotopoulos said. "But would we
like to be in the top-10 or five instead
of top-20? Absolutely.
"I think having a little bit of 'old
school' back on the team is a good
thing, I never really thought of it that
way until some of the players on the
team came up to me and really ex-
pressed how it feels to have some of


the tradition right in their face."
Fotopoulos recognizes the hard
work and expectations that go hacd-
in-hand with coaching at UP.
"{UF athletics director] Jeremy
Foley holds everyone accountable
and holds us all to high standards,"
she said. "I like that... I'm just com-
petitive that way and love being in
that environment."
"I learned a lot about hav-
ing the responsibilities of a
whole soccer program on
your shoulders."
Danielle Fotopoulos
UF assistant soccer coach

In her collegiate coaching
debut, Fotopoulos and husband
George teamed up as co-head
coaches at Louisiana State in
2004, but after posting an 8-
11-1 season, both resigned last
November.
Fotopoulos remains upbeat
about her experience in Baton
Rouge and hopes that she can
learn from it.
"I learned a lot about having
the responsibilities of a whole
soccer program on your shoul-
ders," she said.
"One thing I missed out on,
though, is all the work you need
to put in to earn your way to a
head coaching position.
"Being at LSU made me real-
ize just how much I wanted to be
back at the University of Florida,
and not just the soccer program,
but the university as a whol e"

UF's secondary has endured grueling
conditioning so it will be ready when op-
ponents pass the ball late in games.
"We get a rough deal," Jackson said.

Florida Women's Trach & Field

Informational Meeting

The Florida Women's Track and Field team will have an
information meeting regarding possible walk-ons for
javelin throwers on Tuesday, Sept. 6, at 5p.m.
in the A/V Room in the Lemerand Center.

All Students interested in becoming javelin throwers
are encouraged to attend the information meeting.
In the Southeastern Conference, the javelin throw
has traditionally been an event heavily influenced
by walk-ons, so it is highly possible for a walk-on to
have immediate impact on not only the Florida team
but also the conference level.


For more information on the meeting and subsequent tryouts,
please call Florida Women's Track and Field Assistant Head
Coach Steve Lemke at (352) 375-4683 (ext. 5548).

UF works on fourth-quarter woes


AullglUt rile rllvou
Kyle Jackson and the Gators' defense believe that late
game meltdowns are a thing of the past.


By FARZAD SAFI
Alligator Staff Writer
fsafi@alligator.org

Under former coach Ron Zook, the
Gators showed they could hang with
any team in the country. That is, until
the fourth quarter rolled around.
Many college football experts be-
lieve that UF has the talent to win a
national championship, but question
if the Gators have the toughness to
close out games.
During fall training camp, UF
coach Urban Meyer admitted that
the Gators are a little soft.
"That's a valid statement and a
fact," Meyer said. "Our toughness
and finish are the two things this
team is being challenged on right
now. If we do not fix those issues
from last year, we will be an average
team again."
In Zook's final two years at UF, he
lost eight regular-season games. Six
of the losses came when the Gators
were up late in the fourth quarter
before allowing teams to storm back
and steal the win.
In 2004, UF was leading with
6 seconds left on the road against
Tennessee and again with :27-re-
maining at home against LSU but
managed to lose both games. Also,


Mississippi State's Jerious Norwood
ran for, a game-winning 37-yard
touchdown with just :32 left in
MSU's shocking 38-31 win against
the Gators.

"What's different from last
year is that we can now call
ourselves a veteran team.
Guys like Brandon Siler, Ray
McDonald, Jarvis Herring are
all a year wiser and stronger. I
feel confident that youth is no
longer the trademark of this
defense."
Charlie Strong
UF co-defensive coordinator


In 2003, heavily favored Miami
found itself down 23 points at home
against a UF team it had blown out
the previous year. However, it only
took 18:35 for the Hurricanes to re-
gain the lead for good.
How could the Gators be so domi-
nant for the majority of a game only
to give it all away at the end?
"Honestly, I don't know what hap-
pened at the end of games last year,"
sophomore safety Kyle Jackson said.


"We must not have been mentally or
physically ready but it's a whole dif-
ferent story this year. From day one,
this coaching staff was all about fin-
ish. We have signs everywhere that
read 'Finish, finish, finish.'"
Defensive end Jeremy Mincey
shares in Jackson's optimism for the
upcoming year but has a different
explanation for the blown leads.
"I think it was a lack of rotation,"
Mincey said. "If you don't have peo-
ple constantly rotating, you're going
to tire out after a while. Teams will
take advantage of you when you're
tired."
Opponents did just that last sea-
son in the fourth quarter. The Gators
dominated opponents through the
first three quarters last year, out-
scoring them 307-173. In the fourth
quarter, ,however, the Gators were
outscored 80-75.
Co-defensive coordinator Charlie
Strong was present during Zook's
tenure, and he is adamant that UF
will. no longer be suspect at the end
of games.
"What's different from last year is
that we can now call ourselves a vet-
eran team," Strong said. "Guys like
