start over at UF

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

Libby Michqlini's stint as a resident
assistant in a Tulane University dorm was
over before it even began.
"At 11 a.m. on the same day the fresh-
men moved in, we were issued a manda-
tory evacuation," the 20-year-old Tulane
student said. "We had until 6 p.m. to get
everybody out."
Michelini, who initially believed she
would be able to return to Tulane, eventu-
ally became one of the 69 college students
displaced by Hurricane Katrina who have
enrolled at UF for the Fall semester.
Many plan to return to the city in the
Spring semester to .finish their education
there, but in the meantime they are encoun-
tering various challenges as they attempt to
acquire financial aid, secure housing and
battle UF's administrative bureaucracy.
"The only things I brought with me
from Tulane were a suitcase, a pillow and
my laptop," Michelini said. "I'm really ex-
cited to be here now, but UF hasn't figured
out what its official stance is, so there's a
lot of red tape."
Although Michelini is a Florida native,
she is ineligible for a Bright Futures schol-
arship because of her status as a transient
student at UF.
"They told me I'm not admitted, just
enrolled," she said. "It sort of really hurts,
because schools all over the country, like the
upper-echelon ones, are waiving all costs."
UF spokesman Steve Orlando said UF
lacks the financial resources of private
schools offering free tuition and the uni-

Parking tops


Board agenda

By STEPHEN MAGRUDER
Alligator Writer
smagruder@alligator.org

Though thousands of students pour in and
out of UF on a daily basis, campus roads are in
no shape to handle more traffic, a UF official said
Thursday afternoon.
The effects of a growing student population
surfaced in discussion during committee meetings
of the university's highest governing body, the
Board of Trustees.
Though UF's 10-year master plan calls for 13
new parking structures, only one or two are likely
to be funded in coming years.
The Facilities Committee's
presentation on the plan shifted
to a question-and-answer ses-
sion on campus parking avail-
The plan limits how many
parking spots UF can add on
campus each year, and that
Poppell limit has not been met, said
Ed Poppell, vice president for
Finance and Administration.
One reason, he said, is UF's tendency to erect
buildings on parking lots.
He added that mass transit alternatives, such
as buses, have been promoted, and in recent years
on-campus parking has been discouraged because
road conditions around campus are too poor to
handle the increase in daily car traffic.
"You have prepaid, unlimited ridership" on
RTS buses, Poppell said of UF students.
The Facilities Committee also voted to re-
direct $1.5 million in student-funded Capital
Improvement Trust Fund allocations. The money

'Krewe' serves up Big Easy fare for hurricane relief


* ALLEN LEBLANC'S FAMILY LIVED
RIGHT NEXT TO A BROKEN LEVEE.

By MELISSA JACOBS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Having escaped a house now filled with
7 feet of water, Allen LeBlanc and his family
have felt the brunt of Hurricane Katrina.


LeBlanc's family comes from Lakeview,
a neighborhood right next to the 17th Street
Canal where the levee broke, causing mas-
sive flooding and damage.
"My family's house is nothing like it once
was. It's completely devastating," he said.
Stricken by the disastrous impact of the
storm, LeBlanc and a longtime friend, UF
junior Justin Farge, decided it was time to
take action.

"Allen and I would sit
around for hours on end sur-

Hurriw e age on the news, watching
H u in our city turn to hell," said
Farge, whose family also was
affected by the storm.
"Basically, we got tired of being depressed
and decided to do something about it. Raising
money seemed like the best alternative."


LeBlanc and Farge will be supporting
hurricane relief through their fundraiser,
nicknamed "The Jambalaya Krewe."
The Krewe will serve jambalaya, a sig-
nature New Orleans Creole dish, during
Saturday's football game versus Louisiana
Tech at the comer of University Avenue and
Northwest 18th Street to benefit those affected

UF students and residents can
lighten up on conserving electric-

power.
The Florida Reliability
Coordinating Council discontin-
ued alerts advising residents to
limit the use of natural gas by cut-
ting down on electricity.
The alerts were issued after two
Louisiana processing plants, which
contributed to the pipelines carry-
ing natural gas to Florida, were de-
stroyed by Hurricane Katrina, said
Don Jesse, a Gainesville Regional
Utilities spokesman.
"If the state had not heeded
the advice and we had hot days,
we could've had rolling black-
outs," Jesse said. "During a rolling

Gainesville, he was happy to
say, never has had a rolling black-
out.
With hurricane season reaching
its peak, more alerts and high costs
are probable.
"Prices are re-

Paul Sotkiewicz, director of energy

Still, he said that even. before
Hurricane Katrina damaged four
fuel refineries, electricity prices
were on the rise.
"The demand for heating and
electricityand the lack of signifi-
cant findings to meet the demand
will cause this;" Sotkiewicz said.

was promised for renovation of the Flavet Field Bandshell,
a concert venue, but the administration asked the Board to
use it to replace sewage pipes and elevator shafts in the Reitz
Union.
The Union, which sees thousands of students every day,
could lose its popular food court if the sewage pipes break,
Student Body President Joe Goldberg said.
He added that the money would fund renovations of the
Rion Ballroom and student organization offices on the Union's
third floor. But the reallocation first has to be approved by the
full Board of Trustees today, then by the Board of Governors,
the body that oversees the State University System, and fi-
nally the Legislature in its next session.
During a meeting of the Committee on Educational Policy,
UF's student body of nearly 49,000 was cited as pushing resi-


dence halls and classrooms to their limits as well.
Associate Provost Joe Glover said that about 550 more
freshmen than expected enrolled this year, causing class sizes
to swell and on-campus living to reach near capacity.
"We poured a record amount of money into hiring addi-
tional faculty," Glover said. "The academic infrastructure has
beei pushed to the limit."
As a result, he said UF, which had intended to keep the
freshman class size constant, would have to rethink its admis-
sions strategy.
Despite the increase in enrollment, Glover said that nearly-
every department on campus meets the student demand, ex-
cept for some chemistry labs, which are limited by the amount
of equipment available.
Provost Janie Fouke added that nearly 70 students from
areas affected by Hurricane Katrina have 'enrolled at UP.
The entire Board of Trustees will meet today at Emerson
Alumni Hall to vote on issues brought up in Thursday's com-
mittee meetings. .

Starting at 11 a.m., fans can
enjoy a taste of the Big Easy for $3

cause.
"We decided to sell the jam-
balaya on gameday because it
is just so important for people
to remember how unique New
Orleans is and how we all need
to do our part to make sure their
culture and tradition stays alive,"
LeBlanc said.
"Everyone should feel the need
to help out."
Proceeds from the jamba-
laya will benefit Catholic Relief
Charities, he said.


Farge and LeBlanc based the
idea for their event on a group
of Louisiana natives that called
themselves "The Gumbo Krewe."
The original "Krewe" traveled to
ground zero after the Sept. 11, 2001
attacks to feed rescue workers and
later to Afghanistan and Iraq to
feed soldiers.
LeBlanc said he is unsure of
whether his family will ever be able
to return to his home in Lakeview,
and if the community can ever re-
build to what it once was.
"I'm hoping for the best for my
neighborhood, and that it is able
to survive beyond this disaster,"
he said.
"Right now, all I can do is put
every last bit of effort into doing
my part to help the situation."

SFCC offers

By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Contributing Writer
Before Hurricane Katrina hit
New Orleans last week, Amanda
Gonzalez, 18, was a performing
and media arts student at Delgado
Community College in New
Orleans.
Gonzalez's house, along with
her goal of transferring to the
University of New Orleans, is
now underwater, but SFCC is giv-
ing her a chance to continue her
education at the Andrews Center
in Starke, a satellite campus, for
free.
SFCC will waive or reduce tu-
ition and fees for students from ar-

eas affected by Hurricane Katrina
on a case-by-case basis depending
on the student's living situation,
said Bennye Alligood, SFCC as-
sociate vice president for college
relations.
"We are concentrating on re-
moving barriers and giving the
students the best possible educa-
tion under the circumstances,"
Alligood said.
Three affected students are en-
rolled at SFCC, but officials expect
more transfers as they learn about
the offer.
Gonzalez and her family ar-
rived in Starke on Aug. 28, the
day before Hurricane Katrina
submerged the first story of their
two-story house.
"I am glad that [Amanda] was
able to get in school," said her
mother, Robin Gonzalez. "I didn't
want her to get behind."

said she is having a hard time ad-


justing to the school and receiving
information.
"When we first called UF, they
said they didn't know if they were
accepting students," she said.
"Eventually I got in, but I'm not
used to the campus, and it's hard to
get things done. I can't get a lot of my
books, because I don't know what's
going to happen with financial aid."
Wittenberg added that she
doesn't feel faculty and administra-
tion members are being as helpful
as they can.
"Students have been very nice
helping me catch up," she said. "But
with the faculty and staff, it's hard to
get done what I need to do, and I just
spent a lot of time going to different
offices."

enroll student evacuees despite the
setbacks he's encountered.
"I spent a good five hours walk-.
ing from office to office getting pa-

a big school they're doing a good

about this is finding somewhere to

While Adams' friends from
Tulane escaped the hurricane safely,
he said he hasn't heard from many
of the New Orleans locals he knew.

Editorial


SG atrocities

Students' voices are

ignored in Reitz plan
T oday is supposed to be Darts & Laurels.
But something has come to the attention of the Editorial
Board that cannot wait until Monday's column.
We'd like to step over all the DART-worthy missteps of this
week to focus on one atrocity that affects all UF students who
value their right to have a say in the way their tuition is spent.
Thus, we shoot a huge our-money-isn't-your-personal-
home-decorating-fund DART at UF administrators and
Student Body President Joe Goldberg for circumventing the
student body and announcing they will take $1.5 million from a
tuition-funded fee to spruce up the Reitz Union.
Almost a year ago students decided the money would go
to the Flavet Field Bandshell, an outdoor campus venue in dis-
repair. In the past, acts such as Outkast graced its stage for free
concerts in front of a sea of students.
The money comes from the Capital Improvement Trust
Fund, which is compiled from a fee attached to tuition. Every
three to five years, the legislature gives the university a chunk
of the revenue. The most recent windfall was $13.6 million.
Last Fall a board of students and administrators decided
how to divide the money. Information was collected, lists were
drawn up, and eventually the entire committee decided how
much would be spent and where. The spending was approved
by the university's highest governing body.
That should have been the end of it.
But now Goldberg and Reitz Union officials are disregarding
months of planning because they fancy themselves dictators.
We're not gonna take it.
They plan to use $200,000 for new sewer lines and elevator
pistons. The remaining $1.3 million might be put toward redec-
orating the Rion Ballroom and the Student Activities Center.
First of all the Rion Ballroom is not in need of such a reno-
vation. It's not in disrepair and is far from being unusable.
Students and faculty members use it all the time. They will
continue to use it, mostly for meetings and occasionally for con-
certs. It doesn't need to be a fancy room lined in gold trim. The
Grand Ballroom can serve as the "nice" one.
The Bandshell, however, is completely shut down. It needs
renovation. And more students will benefit by its re-emergence.
than by the sprucing up of the ballroom.
Secondly, the Student Activities Center only has so much
space it can give to organizations. They can't add to the third
floor; they can only restructure what they've got.
Goldberg's plea was that only 18 organizations have offices
on the third floor. Of course more than 60 percent is used by
Florida Blue Key, which is not a UF organization, and the Office
of Sorority and Fraternity-Affairs.
We really don't buy that one.
Finally, the $200,000 allotment seems logical at first. The
Reitz has some serious sewer problems, and none of us want
our Union submerged in sewage.
This would still leave $1.3 million for the Bandshell.
More important, however, is the way the Union milks SG for
all it's worth.
Last year SG loaned the Union $500,000 for its hotel and gave
another $100,000 for a sewer line. Sure, it's supposed to be for
the students, but we'd argue that the university administration
reaps benefits and yet never lends a helping hand.
The Editorial Board's final complaint is that Goldberg is un-
doing what the SG administration before him did. Last Fall he,
expressed distaste for the way former Student Body President
Jamal Sowell left the Union out of the trust-fund list.
Now he's overturning that decision without any student
input.
Today the Board of Trustees will decide whether to give the
funds to the Reitz Union.
Go to the meeting in Emerson Alumni Hall and raise hell.

Opinions

www.alligator.org/opinions


Hurricane race issue is a fabrication


K anye West was right: George Bush doesn't care about
black people.
Unfortunately, West was so focused on reading the
teleprompter, he forgot to read one of the words.
George Bush doesn't care specifically about black people.
How did this become a race issue, instead of a tragedy
that affects all Americans?
As happens so often these days, it became a race issue
because members of that race and sympathetic media
representatives and activists made it a race issue.
Contrary to West's opinion newspapers aren't referring
to black scavengers as "looting" and white scavengers as
"looking for food."
One Associated Press photo caption referred to one black
man as a looter, because the photographer according to
Jack Stokes, the AP's director of media relations saw him
loot from a store.
One AFP/Getty photo caption referred to white people as
having found goods, because photographer Chris Graythen
- as he said in a public statement believed they had
picked up those goods as they floated by.
But even if there wasn't an easy explanation for the word-
ing choices, two photos aren't a trend.
To-assume automatically that they constitute racism be-
cause the harsher caption features a black man and the lesser
depicts white people is ridiculous.
Worse, every time the media picks up this sort of reaction,
impressionable people hold it up as gospel truth.
I say "impressionable" because any words that truly
would apply are not suitable for a public forum.
Only a few days after West's meltdown, I sat in class and
listened to an impressionable student tell the professor she
had no idea if what West said was true. But she thought it
sounded pretty bad, and West obviously knew what he was
talking about because the events made him so emotional.
West himself is guilty of the same crime as the student,
as each successive complainer builds upon the original


overreaction until the public be-
lieves it to be true because it's heard
it so often.
For him these two photos con-
stitute "the way they portray us
in the media," as if there were a
Matt SancheZ long history of similar occurrences
Pure Foppery for which this only is a recent ex-
msanchez@alligator.org ample.
I'd like to see some evidence of
these occurrences.
True, there is a lot of. black crime in the media. There also
is a lot of black crime.
If you think that statement is racist in any way, then you
probably aren't the sort of reasonably thinking American
who I'm trying to reach with these words.
White people aren't racist just because they're white.
Black people in trouble aren't facing racism just because
they're in trouble.
New Orleans wouldn't be in any better shape right now
if the percentage of black residents and white residents were
flipped unless it were because the white residents had
more money and thus had easier access to relief.
That's not a problem of racism; that's a problem of in-
equality.
That inequality isn't caused by racists. It's a relic of a dying
social order that has a long way to go before it's rectified.
But it will be rectified, and its path will be much easier if
both sides are willing to treat each other as equals.
Yes, both sides.
A disaster occurred, and its aftermath was and is a trag-
edy because of a deadly combination of poor preparation
and questionable relief efforts.
Tb try to make it anything more only directs energy away
from the issues causing legitimate human suffering..

Guest column

Student Government should stop trying


For the first time in a long while,
Student Government is making a
concerted effort to reach out to the
student body and really show how it
works for us.
In a painful twist of irony, however,
this era of helping the common student
already has proved to be more damaging
and inconvenient for the student body
than the status quo of years gone by.
During its election campaign of Spring
2005, the Gator Party made numerous
promises regarding the services toward
which it would work for the good of the
student body. Towels would be provided
at the recreation centers. Online voting
would become a.reality.
These were typical campaign pledges,
and it remained to be seen whether or not
these promises would materialize.
When the "secured-site" online vot-
ing initiative was passed this Summer,
many understood exactly what it stood
for. SG had stonewalled a strong call for
student involvement in elections before
it could become a reality. By merely plac-
ing computers at the standard polling
locations, it technically had answered-
the online-voting question while barely


Scott Gilton touching the spirit
Speaking Out of the whole idea.
The fiasco was ac-
cepted resignedly by most of the student
body, which knew that was the way SG
works sometimes.
It's a shame SG didn't give up on
reaching out to the students after, that
intentionally bungled initiative.
Instead, SG is now furthering the
greater good of the student body by con-
sidering seizing a quarter of the comput-
ers in the Reitz Union lab for its brilliantly
planned secured-site voting later this
month. Perhaps the members of SG don't
make the trip to the third-floor computer
lab too often. If they did, they might see
that the room is almost constantly at full
capacity. The student body would have
been better off with the paper-ballot vot-
ing of past years.
The "free towels for everyone" initia-
tive also backfired miserably.
With the campus laundry services
closing, common sense would dictate
that the gym-towel concept would be
put to pasture for reasons of increased
expenses or unexpected circumstances.


Instead, SG, acting as the champion of
the everyday student, has decided to out-
source the laundering of towels. While
some may argue that forgotten gym tow-
els are one of the direst inconveniences
plaguing the student body today, $50,000
seems to be too steep a price to pay for a
remedy, especially considering that laun-
dering would be a continuing drain on
SG funds in future semesters.
All told, SG has followed up on its
promise to provide more services for stu-
dents and increase its visibility on cam-
pus. However, the bumbling and sheer
inefficiency it has displayed in pursuit
of this promise is so painful at this point
that I cringe to admit I was one of many
predicting SG would really do something
for us last Spring.
The embarrassing blindness The
Gator Party has exhibited in delivering
on its campaign promises makes one
wonder if we would be better helped if
SG would mind its own business.
Perhaps increasing student awareness
of SG services should consist of unneces-
sary and overpriced TV spots instead of
public deeds.

Letter to the Editor
New Orleans needs to relocate inland
The past 10 days have been some of the
worst in our nation's history. Following the
initial shock of Hurricane Katrina, I began to
analyze the situation.
Into my thoughts came the realization that
New Orleans was on an impossible site. When
the French arrived they loved the delta where
rice could be grown abundantly. The city flour-
ished.
Now we are confronted with the task of re-
building. It would test Job beyond any reason.
An answer came to me: Scrape New Orleans
,clean.
Retain any surviving buildings of value
but relocate the city to a site far removed from
the old. Build a new city with houses, schools,
colleges, churches, apartments, condos, shop-
ping centers, roads and airports. All should
be planned and built in a new context. The
problems of charters, deeds and leases would
be solvable.
The way is clear to me..We can do it if our
population has the will and our elected offi-
cials the resolve. A catastrophe can be an op-
portunity unimagined.

Assembly brings out South Asian American pride


By DIANA MAZZELLA
Alligator Writer
dmazzella@alligator.org


Danny Ghitis / Alligator
Rajiv Sharma, Rocky Singh and Umang Batu wait to perform with the UF Bhangra Club during the
South Asian American Student Assembly on Thursday night.


They wore saris, "Swamp Thing"
T-shirts, suits, jeans and tunics. Some
were barefoot and some wore shoes.
The first South Asian American
Student Assembly held at UF in-
cluded Sikh, Hindu, Islamic, and
-national and cultural organizations
in the Reitz Union's Rion Ballroom
on Thursday night.
Associate Dean of Students Mary
Kay Schneider told the students
there to "make sure you claim the
University of Florida as your own."
With the orange and blue tunics
and saris of the UF Bhangra Club
dancers and the Gator chomp cheer
spread throughout the night, they
appeared to be doing just that.
"This has been a long-stand-
ing dream of mine," said South
Asian American Student Alliance
President Preeti Sharma. She said
she had wanted to have the South
Asian groups on campus together
at one event.
Main speaker Sarwat Rumi, a
self-described Bengali American


Muslim, read her poetry and shared
her experience with women's issues,
especially South Asian women.
Though dancers at the event
wore a kaleidoscope of colors, Rumi
wore jeans and a brown, short-
sleeved shirt.
Her poems and message spoke of
her own experiences of being raped
and being in an abusive relationship
during her college years.
She said she wanted
On students to form com-
CampUS munities that went be-
yond social networks.
In a slow, lulling voice, she sang
and spoke of her recent trip to
Bangladesh, where she often heard
the Muslim call to prayer.
She flowed into an intimate poem
in which she prayed to Allah.
"I never thought I could know
you like this," she recited.
The Bhangra Club may have
drawn the most cheers-from the au-
dience of more than 400 people.
In orange-and-blue veils, tunics,
vests and turbans, the dancers
hopped and twirled their arms,
their bracelets and long earrings
jingling.

Cue Jim Morrison, board up the
windows and cancel your Sports
Illustrated subscription because
"This is the end. My only friend the
end."
Or at least that's what the Red
Cross commercials are telling me.
Sometimes, the laughter subsides
and the world becomes a serious,
scary place. It's hard for us to imag-
ine such a thought, because here at
alligatorSports, we usually find the
serious route awfully boring.
But after listening to Louisiana
Tech coach Jack Bicknell describe
the horrors of Hurricane Katrina
- even though the Bulldogs play
five hours away from New Orleans
- one thing is clear: this game is
about much more than football.
So, for the first and last time in al-
ligatorSports Brand Picks ColumnTM
history, we're turning serious.
No jokes or bashes, especially not
with this week's token picker be-
ing Dan Hollingsworth, the mayor
of Ruston, La., where the Bulldogs
play football.
Hollingsworth, who hopes to
make the trip to Gainesville this
weekend, says the Bulldogs are us-
ing this weekend's game as a type
of therapy.
"I think the fact that life goes on,
the team is still going to try to do
their best to represent our university
and our state, which has always had
a lot of pride," Hollingsworth said.
"They'll play hard and do their best,
and we certainly wish them well. I
hope it's a really good contest. Y'all
[in Florida] have had your share of
storms, you're not immune."
Ruston and nearby Shreveport

Forgotten corner now UF's posterboy


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer
lanastasis@alligator.org

Vemell Brown spotted the wob-
bling ball and they were alone.
He dove to his left and vacu-
umed it in and it was just Brown
- all 5-foot-8 of him and the
football.
After watching him intercept
a pass from Wyoming's Corey
Bramlet, you were probably sur-
prised.
Just like when you saw him
start the game;
Just like when you saw him
nearly de-cleat running back
Wynel Seldon in the backfield.
Especially when you glanced
at the box score after the game and
saw that Brown, one of the short-
est cornerbacks in college football,
led the Gators with six tackles.
Surprised? Don't be.
"Every time I step on that field,
I always feel like there's somebody
questioning me," said Brown, his
words, making him appear much
taller, much bigger. "I just come
out and make plays. I try to work
hard and help the team."
Didn't it look right Brown
and that intercepted ball all alone?
Yet from 2001-2004, the redshirt
senior barely tasted Swamp turf.-
He arrived as a local Gainesville
High stud. Then the transforma-
tion began.
The coaches made him a de-
fensive back, then a receiver, then
a punt returned, then a defensive
back all over again. Still, he rarely
played until the infamous day.


Vernell Brown jukes during a punt return against Wyoming, but Brown's best moves have been com-
ing off the field.


With all the Bloomin' Onions
on the line, UF asked him to pass
the ball. The Gators, with a hot Rex
Grossman and a promising drive,
asked a 5-footf-8 speed demon
to use his arm, not his legs. With
UF down a touchdown and two
points on Michigan's 27-yard line,
they asked Brown to complete the


comeback in the 2003 Outback
Bowl. He was intercepted. He
doesn't want to remember.
"I live in today," Brown said.
"[It stuck with me] maybe an hour
after the game, and it was over and
done with, and then you have to
move on."
Brown, indeed, tried to move


on. But under Zook's tenure, he
was only running in place. He
would see the field sparingly, won-
dering why his talents were 1Bing
overlooked, wondering what he
was doing wrong.
But with the new coaching staff,

Improving shovel pass a must for Gators


By IAN FISHER
Alligator Staff Writer
ifisher@alligator.org

Although the Gators passed for 320 yards
and only ran for 91 against Wyoming, that
would be different if they used Coach Urban
Meyer's measure of the shovel pass.
Meyer said Thursday he considers it a run;
however, it is counted statistically as a pass.
Either way, Meyer emphasized its impor-
tance in his offense.
"When you have a play like a shovel, you're
limited to how many blitzes you'll see," Meyer
said. "That's an important part of our offense.
Not that we'll call it 10 times a game, but you
have to have it."
Meyer said UF didn't do a great job with it


Saturday, but it'll get better. He compared it to
the timeline at Utah. Meyer said during his first
year at Utah, the shovel pass was average, but
in his second it became quite
successful.
That being said, Meyer
was a lot happier with his
first game with the Gators
than with his Utes debut.
"It was horrible," Meyer:
said of his first Utah game.
"We beat Utah State 40-20;
Meyer I remember it very well. It
was the ugliest 40 points in the history of col-
lege football."

LINEUP CHANGES?: Meyer said a few players
will likely play against Louisiana Tech that


didn't against Wyoming. Defensive end Javier
Estopinan, who sat out with a pulled muscle,
may return to special teams, and offensive line-
man Jim Tartt may make his college debut after
missing the first game due to off-season shoul-
der surgery. Meyer.said it's more of a need for.
reps for Tartt, since he is a redshirt freshman.
DeShawn Wynn will be back at running
back, but the starter will be a game-time deci-
sion. Also, safety Tony Joiner may see the field
after not playing against Wyoming.
After reserve punter/holder Nick Fleming
botched two snaps on extra points last week,
Meyer will use reserve quarterback-Matt Kynes
as well as Fleming as a holder.
"Matt Kynes will probably get the first
one, but Nick Fleming is an accountable guy,"
Meyer said.

Gators prepare game by game


Despite some. high-profile
matchups in the near future and
recent past, the UF women's soc-
cer-team cannot let either of this
weekend's opponents fly under
the radar.
While this weekend's games
are sandwiched between last
week's pair of top-10 showdowns
and next weekend's in-state ri-
valry matches -against FSU and
Ce-tral Florida, the No. 12 Gators
must focus on facing Loyola
College tonight and Wisconsin-
Milwaukee on Smunday.
Head coach Becky Burleigh
doesn't anticipate easy victo-
ries and expects Wisconsin-
Milwaukee, in particular, to pres-
ent a challenge on the field.
"Wisconsin-Milwaukee made
the tournament as recently as
2004 and they have a good team,"
Burleigh said. "They're very old
- they have a lot of juniors and
seniors on their roster and a lot of
experience."
Last weekend,, the top-ranked
Irish pummeled UF 4-1 on Friday,
but the Gators redeemed the loss
Sunday with a 5-0 win against


then-No. 9 Connecticut.
"We certainly didn't want to
lose to Notre Dame and that was
disappointing," Burleigh said.
"But they were a really good
team. It was good for us because
it gives us an idea of where we
need to be.
"We need
to work some-
what on our
defensive
shape, because
I think Notre
Dame pulled
us apart defen-
Burleigh sively a little
bit. In terms
of offense, the goals we scored
against UConn were good, but
we want it to come out of more
combination play than by indi-
vidual effort."
Practice this week would fo-
cus on better combination play
between her midfielders and
forwards, Burleigh said, as well
as more shutout victories against
this weekend's opponents. But
Burleigh is certain of one thing
going into the weekend her


team will not be looking ahead,
past the upcoming matches.
"Every game is important,"
she said. "Every single game. We
stress that all the time, so I can't
imagine anyone looking ahead
at all."

-SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS

STARTING GUN: Cross Country
coach Jeff Pigg is hoping to
lead his mens' team back to the
NCAAs this year and take the
women there for the first time,
as UF will begin competition this
morning.
Even though UF will not be
running against any conference
rivals, the team knows how im-
portant each building block is.
"The first meet is always im-
portant because it's a confidence
booster," sophomore Kristen
Johnson said. "The first meet gets
the anxiety and nervousness to go
away. We see how we're going to
work as a team."

VOLLEYBALL

UF looks for redemption against USC


By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Writer

If the UF volleyball team's 2003
season were a sandwich, Southern
California would be the stale bread that
ruined a perfectly nice lunch.
Remove the metaphorical bread and
you have a 36-0 season in which the
Gators' opponents rarely avoided get-
ting swept. In reality, UF's streak was
bookended between two losses to USC
-one to open the Gators' season and
the other in the National Championship
game.
For the first time since 2003, the No.
6 Gators will face off against the No. 8
Trojans on Saturday at the UTSA Dome
Rally in San Antonio, Texas.
Opposite hitter Amber McCray in-
sists the Gators are not worried about
avenging the tough losses.
"Yes, I think we are [excited to face
USC], but at the same time we are not
too focused on revenge or anything
because we are playing three really
tough teams this weekend," McCray
said. "College volleyball has changed
so much just in these two years that
there is not one dominant team like
USC was.
"Now, we're just looking forward to
playing everybody because we know


they are all going to be really tough
competition, and we are excited to see
how we do against them."
The Gators also will face No. 13
Texas A&M on Friday for their first-
ever meeting.
Wrapping un the weekend with No.
19 Notre Dame on Sunday, UF will
complete a slate of three top-20 oppo-
nents in three consecutive days.

"I think that no matter what
happens this weekend, we have
a chance to get better because
of the quality opponents."
Coach Mary Wise
UF volleyball

Coach Mary Wise acknowledges
that the weekend schedule is challeng-
ing but expresses excitement to have
the opportunity to play such high-level
competition.
"It's going to be as tough a three-
match weekend as we've ever had here
at Florida," Wise said. "That's appar-
ent because we are going to be playing
all sorts of good teams that feature
elite-level players.
"Three consecutive days we are go-
ing to be playing All-Americans, and


the great thing about our sport is that
you really can take a chance scheduling
these types of matches because an early
season loss doesn't affect you.
"When we got a call about this tour-
nament, the answer was a quick yes."
The Gators are 1-5 all-time against
USC, but they have won four of their
five prior meetings with Notre Dame.
Sophomore setter Angie McGinnis
said that after sweeping four oppo-
nents in four days last week, UF is up
to the challenge of taking on such dif-
ficult teams.
"I think we are very prepared defi-
nitely after [last] weekend...playing all
different types of opponents and all dif-
ferent types of hitters," McGinnis said.
"Of course, they're going to be a little
bit better teams, but I think we are all
set for it.
"A couple more days of practice un-
der our belt and we'll be fine."
No matter the outcome, Wise insists
the upcoming matches will not make or
break this UF squad.
"I think that no matter what hap-
pens this weekend, we have a chance to
get better because of the quality oppo-
nents," she said. "But I think this team,
as every year, our goal is to play -our
best volleyball in December."

Brown's size not a problem


UFr, from page 17

something changed. Because,
while Brown stayed the same,
he began receiving respect.
"I don't know what V.
Brown was like last year," co-
defensive coordinator Greg
Mattison said. "All I know is
that I wish I had 11 of him now.
He comes to work every day
trying to get better, he practices
as best he can and he's a tre-
mendous leader. That's all you
could ask for in a guy."
Brown has been such an
example, the coaches anointed
him "the face of Florida foot-
ball" during a preseason team
meeting. Maybe it was that
he graduated last May with a
degree in Family, Youth and
Community Sciences. Maybe
it was because Brown never
takes a play off, never makes
an excuse, never takes any-


thing for granted.
"Me, personally, I've always
been a fighter," Brown said.
"I've been down, and at points
and times in my career I've
been at the bottom, but regard-
less of where I'm at, I'm going
to continue fighting."
But you are still amazed.
He is just 5-foot-8, don't for-
get. Then again, he has a 40-
inch vertical and a heart even
larger.
"When he speaks, every-
body listens," Mattison said.
"They know, 'OK, he's doing
it so let's listen to him.' He not
only speaks it, but he shows
it on a field, and that's what
you're looking for as a leader."
So don't be surprised to see
him on the field all season. In
fact, expect him there.
"It's not about how you
start, it's about how you fin-
ish," Brown said.


PICKS, from page 17


"We've seen some incredible stories, tragic
events, and all and all you wonder how you get
through these things. Sometimes it's makes you
stronger."
While nearly everyone has their money on the
Gators, the mayor picked a major upset with the
Bulldogs shocking Urban Meyer and the Gators
21-17.
As for the rest of us pickers, there will be no
bashing this week. Instead, in a one-time event,
we will praise each other for the good that we each
bring to Gainesville, UF and the world.
Last week, Kit Cody, the great-grandson of
Buffalo Bill and a self-described spectator sports
hater, humbled the alligatorSports staff with a
Rudy-esque 7-3 record.
So, hitting first in the giant glut of 5-5 records is
free-lovin' flower child Andrew "I dig the groovy
tunes so that everyone should play in the band"
Abramson, who could give Gandhi a lesson in
passive resistance.
Batting second at 5-5 is staff philanthropist
Bryan "I'll drive anywhere in the world, including
overseas, if it means covering a basketball game
for the Alligator" App, who can set a somber but
intellectual mood at any bar by engaging in con-
versations about starving people in Nigeria.
Hitting third at 5-5 is West Coast partier Eric


"I love to argue about football, but it's always a
meaningful, deep look at the gridiron," Esteban,
who overcame numerous odds, including Fidel, to
become Tenacious E.
In the cleanup spot at 5-5 is DeShawn Wynn
sympathizer, Farzad "I love to look at the trees,
the flowers, the air and the football players wear-
ing extra-baggy clothes, because life is so beauti-
ful," Safi, who knows more woodland creatures
by their first names than Snow White.
Leading off the season under .500 with a 4-6
mark is the Romanian disco god, Louis "I vant
to tanz" Anastasis, who puts that fat guy on the
Internet to shame when it comes down to an 0-
Zone dance-off.
And with a brighter future certainly on the
horizon, sporting a 4-6 record is all-time capitalist
Ian "My cell phone can cure cancer" Fisher, who
could pull the world out of an economic depres-
sion with his monthly iPod budget.

Brandon Siler's off-the-field resume includes being part of Urban Meyer's select 16-player committee and convincing freshman Jonathan Demps to commit to UF
after his mind was set on Florida State.

UF looking to


perfect offense

Urban Meyer's Gators: Take two.
A week after the Gators scored "only" 32 points, UF returns to
the field against a Louisiana Tech team in disarray from the after-
math of Hurricane Katrina.
While Louisiana Tech's woes, and a major talent differential,
should equal a copious victory for the Gators, fans are hoping for
a Steve Spurrier-style 60 or 70 point outburst by the Gators.
UF fans and players alike hoped to watch one of Meyer's pat-
ented offensive attacks last week, and while the Gators showed
flashes of greatness, mistakes held UF to four touchdowns, all
courtesy of receiver Chad Jackson.
Now, the Gators have one final chance to perfect, or at least
improve, the offense before Tennessee heads to the Swamp.
"We still got some things to clean up and we could get a whole
lot better, but for the most part we did well in the first game," ju-
nior receiver Jemalle Cornelius said. "I think the offense that we
run, it's our job to go out there and put up points. We should have
had three or four touchdowns more [against Wyoming]."
But Meyer and the Gators realize that even if quarterback
Chris Leak once again completes 17 consecutive completions, and
Jackson scores another four touchdowns, UF needs to establish a
running game before facing Tennessee.
That gives Meyer just one more chance to improve an offense
that gained 176 yards on the ground, but lost 85 for a net total of
91.
Enter DeShawn Wynn.
Meyer wouldn't allow UF's 2003 rushing touchdowns leader
to grace the field against Wyoming, instead alternating Kestahn
Moore, Skyler Thornton and Markus Manson.
Wynn certainly has the talent to excel, but after his breakout
season two years ago, injury and work ethic issues have plagued
his career.
This could be the opportunity for Wynn to separate himself
from UF's glut at tailback.
"[Wynn] knows it's his time, and he's got to go now, so he's
focused," offensive lineman Tavares Washington said. "He's in
there lifting harder, he lost all that weight, and he just says that
he feels better."
Washington refused to call Wynn the top tailback on the team,
but said the Gators cannot defeat Tennessee without Wynn's con-
tributions. Wynn, who refuses to talk to the media, wouldn't give
his thoughts.
Leak, however, still remembers Wynn's breakout game against
Miami in 2003 when the then-freshman ran for 100 yards.
"DeShawn is an explosive guy," Leak said. "I remember when
he broke that long run he had against Miami. You can see how
explosive he is."

Siler passed up house parties to take care of his
much younger brothers while his mother was at work.
"I grew up real early because my mom was a single
parent," Siler said. "I've always had that drive like I,
was older than. I am because of my home. While my
friends were out partying, I was cooking Oodles of
Noodles and tucking the kids in bed."
While some would be ecstatic to leave that demand-

frequent trips to Orlando.

"I have a baby sister who is 2, and she is the sweetest
thing," Siler .said. "If she calls me on Wednesday and
says, 'Big brother, I miss,yqu,' I'll be on my way home
that night." ,
,Of course, helping around the house wasn't Siler's
only homework.4his teachers ancboaches knew of his
immense talent and expected him to keep up his exem-
plary grades and leadership on the field.\
Now; the Gators starting middle linebacker enters
only his second season with a world of expectations
already upon him.
UF coach Urban Meyer has repeatedly asked Siler to
take control and make the defense his own.
Gators fans expect Siler to not miss a beat, filling
in for former first team All-SEC linebacker Channing
Crowder.
Siler has already accomplished so much in\o little
time. After being named the SEC Defensive Freshtayp
of the Year last season, this year Siler's on the Bu,,ku
Award Watch List, honoring the top linebacker in the
nation.
Siler, however, always taps the tattoo osi his right
arm twice to remind himself of his path./
"The tattoo is how I look at my Jife," Siler said. "I
never want to settle for being just above average or bet-
ter than the guy next to me. I have to hold myself to a
higher personal standard."

Where did you come from and why are you here?
You arrived from Cincinnati as the Bluechips' No.

touchdowns as a redshirt freshman, rushing for 540
yards at a clip of 4.7 yards per carry. You burst through

between how much a head coach can bench and how
many games he can blow in the fourth quarter?"

Did you even notice yourself?
Then Urban Meyer arrived. Who would win this

prevail the shuttle drill or the Checkers diet?
We thought laziness would give way to obedience.
You dropped a few burgers off your midsection, shaved
a few cheese fries off your man-child legs. Then we
waited. And waited. And waited.
One by one, like post-9-11 customs on return trips
to America, Meyer cleared all of his suspicious bag-
gage. Ray McDonald, check. Brian Crum, check. Todd
McCullough, check. Jarvis Herring, check.
He sent them all off. Then, Meyer pulled you aside
for additional screening. And DeShawn, you missed
your flight to Wyoming.
Why, DeShawn, don't you pack light? We wonder
why you don't want to make your next flight two hours
early. Miss a couple more, and you'll be stranded for the
season in the All-Airport team lobby.
Why, DeShawn, don't you speak? Does something
bum you inside, the same way you bother my spirits,
my conscience? I want to ask you, DeShawn: Why are
you so good in NCAA Football 2006 that you became
my only player drafted by the NFL after my season,
yet you cannot emerge from the pack in Urban Meyer
Football 101.
And so I have followed you this week, hoping you
would speak for the first time in months. Perhaps you
would suppress the thoughts pestering me inside.
On Monday you politely declined, saying you had
to study.
On Tuesday, same the only words you spoke be-
ing "I don't know," when I asked you if you would rush
for 100 yards against Louisiana Tech.
On Wednesday, I gave you one final shot before I
would judge for myself on Saturday.
Knowing football questions would further confuse
the both of us, I kept it simple.
"Coke or Pepsi?" I asked.
You muttered something as you walked away, but I
did not understand you.
