WHO DO WE APPRECIATE?


rescinds



charges
By KYLIE CRAIG
Alligator Writer
kcraig@alligator.org
Troy Devine, the Pi Kappa Alpha
Fraternity member who accused the fra-
ternity of illegal hazing and vandalization,
withdrew his complaint with the Dean of
Students Office on Thursday night after the
fraternity questioned his credibility.
In an e-mail sent to Associate Dean of
Students Paige Crandall, Devine wrote he
has decided to "fully and completely with-
draw my complaint" because "no one else
has had the courage to come forward," and
he feared the issue would become a "cred-
ibility war," among other reasons.
Fraternity officials said
Greek Thursday that Devine offered
Life to withdraw the complaint if
he were compensated for $2,000
in damage to his property.
Devine had filed a police report and
claimed fraternity members vandalized his
room and stole his property from the chap-
ter house.
Eric Wulf, Pike executive director at
the national level, said national headquar-
ters hasn't done anything in part because
Devine's actions cast doubt on his com-
plaint.
"The situation began to get strange,"
Wulf said. "That's the best way I can think
to describe it."
Pike President John Allen said Devine
made the same offer to the local chapter.
"The chapter adviser received an e-
mail saying, 'Ill-retract-this if you give me-
compensation,'" Allen said. "There were
a lot of things that call his credibility into
question."
Devine kept making offers to retract his
statement in exchange for financial compen-
sation and increased the requested amount
over time, Aden said.
Devine denied increasing his financial
demands Thursday but did admit he asked
for compensation.

George Edmondson Jr., better known as Mr. 2-Bits, gets fans pumped
up before the UF-Louisiana Tech football game Saturday.


Gator legend Mr. 2-

Bits may retire soon
By JESSICA GAVILAN
Alligator Contributing Writer

That old UF saying, "If you ain't a Gator, you're Gator
bait," has applied to many outsiders.
But not this one.
George Edmondson Jr., better known to Gator fans as
Mr. 2-Bits, has been an avid Gator football follower since
the late 1940s, and although he did not attend UF, he has
made it his own alma mater.
As the university's unofficial mascot, students have
come to expect the lively 83-year-old cheerleader to liven
up the crowd before every Gator football game.
But students may want to savor his pre-game pep
rally, as Edmondson said this season may be his last.
"I plan to retire for good soon," Edmondson said.
"Maybe after this year."
Retiring the 2-Bits persona would usher in the end of
an era for many: For the last 56 years, Edmondson has not
missed a single opening game.
And for 56 years, Edmondson has worn the same
signature outfit during every cheer.
"People ask me why I don't wear a blue or orange shirt,"
he said. "It's because nobody would recognize me."
The university made him an honorary alumnus,
while fans made him the focal point of game-day kick-
offs.
Edmondson's love of UF started in September of
1949, when the then-27-year-old attended the UF-Citadel
game.
"The Gators were terrible back then," he said. "We
had a lousy team, but they were just kids out there trying
to play a game."
Edmondson said he got mad when Florida fans start-
ed to boo their own team. So he began to lead the cheer
that eventually would give him his nickname.

Parties debate value of experience


By DAVID COHEN
Alligator Writer
dcohen@alligator.org

A National Merit Scholar, a Campus
Talk columnist, a member of UF's Meihua
Student Association of Martial Arts and a
slew of other different titles, positions and
attributes make up the Impact Party's re-
sume for the Fall 2005 election.
However, Impact officials said their
party-does not appear to be as experienced
as their opposition, The Gator Party, be-
cause Gator's administration is in office.
Nine of the 40 candidates slated for


Impact have been involved directly in
Student Government before this election.
Both parties slated about 10 freshmen.
Gator spokesman Thomas Philpot was
not able to retrieve the credentials of party
members at press time.
Impact Party President Thomas Jardon
said candi-
Student Government dates on his
Elections party's slate
may not be
the most trail-hardened group.
"It's like saying in communist Russia
that the communists were more experi-
enced," he said earlier this week, compar-


ing the situation to SG. "The same party
has ruled things for so many years."
Impact spokesman Adam Roberts said
he agrees on paper. But he said a lack
of diversity in Student Senate may be
dangerous.
"It is not democracy," he said. "It is
not equality of opportunity. SG is not the
Greek system. SG is supposed to belong to
everybody."
The Gator Party won the majority in
the Spring 2005 election, and its members
have been in office since May 1.

Students take a stand against campus preachers


* THE PREACHERS TRAVEL
BETWEEN UNIVERSITIES.

By MARIA LAVERGHETTA
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF students decided to even
the playing field Thursday
against campus preachers and
their huge signs on Turlington
Plaza.
Students organized from
morning until afternoon against
Jeremiah Baldwin and Frank
Zaccaro, two traveling preachers
who speak on public
On college campuses
Campus across the nation.
Three students
held up red, orange and yellow
signs that formed the sentence
"Love Is Beautiful." A fourth
sign, held by Gator Gay-Straight
Alliance member Kyle Orta, read
"Hate is not a family value."
"I'm so tired of everyone
being pushed around by these
guys," Orta said.
"The point is not getting the
preachers to listen," he said.
"It's to get the students to have
a voice."
And voices they had.
Sean McCaughan yelled, "I'm
going to hell! Anyone want to
make out?" before walking away
from the crowd.


Tim Hussin/ Alligator
Frank Zaccaro, a traveling preacher, is confronted by student members of the Gator Gay-Straight Alli-
ance on Thursday on Turlington Plaza.


Other students walked by dis-
interested, but a crowd of about
60 continued to grow.
One student was playing a
trumpet right in front of Baldwin,
trying to drown him out. Baldwin
proceeded to call him a "jerk,"
among stronger expletives, for
being disrespectful.


Although the trumpet player
did not wish to comment,
Richard Gutierrez, an alliance
member who held the "Is" sign,
said he felt insulted by the two
preachers.
"There are so many freshmen
who haven't seen this happen,"
he said. "In the end, we thought


we would stand up for some-
thing that is better than they (the
preachers) are."
Standing next to Gutierrez
was Liela Chambers, who held
the "Love" sign. .Chambers trans-
ferred to UF this year and said
she felt the same way about the
two men.


"These guys were at UCF, and
they said the exact same thing,"
she said. "Maybe if they had
something more enlightening to
say or some new point, maybe we
would get engaged to talk."
Baldwin, a 60-year-old divor-
cee, has been preaching since he
was 18 years old.
He said he doesn't attend
church and has a problem with
organized religion.
"Church Christians as a whole
borderline hate me," he said.
"Christians don't preach the en-
tire nature of God."
"I don't condemn anyone, but
I do believe certain things are
wrong," he added.
Zaccaro, who has preached for
12 years, has worked alongside
Baldwin for four years and mir-
rored his friend's thoughts.
"A woman can be angry at her
child," Zaccaro said to a student,
"but that doesn't mean she hates
them."
Jake McGee, a Christian who
attends the First Baptist Church
of Orlando, said yelling at
people presents a false image of
Christian love.
"I'm a 19-year-old Christian
who loves Christ just as much as
these men, but the methods by
which I present that truth are dras-
tically-different," McGee said.

Gator and Impact parties offer distinct platforms


By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Alligator Writer
jrichards@alligator.org


They both claim students' well-
being as their goal, but their play-
books are distinct.
The two parties running Student
Senate candidates in the Fall election
have announced their platforms,
and this year their wish lists share
only two items.
Impact Party President Thomas
Jardon said his party's platform dif-
fers from The Gator Party's in that it
makes promises that are fiscally rea-
-sonable and politically attainable.
"We aren't going to promise a


bridge where there isn't a river,"
he said.
Gator spokesman Thomas Philpot
said Gator's platform aims to benefit
students directly
"r... through on- and
e lB'Z-'. off-campus ser-
.t' ? ,.: vices.
A J "We feel
-' "". that [Student
Government] can
obviously do better in reaching out to
every student, and that's what we're
committed to doing," he said.
Gator and Impact both prom-
ise expanded wireless Internet on
campus, but Gator's plan targets
residence halls while Impact's is


campus-wide.
Both parties advocate Sunday
bus service through the Regional
Transit System. Gator adds more
covered bus shelters and environ-
mentally friendly buses to that
promise, while Impact promotes
increased service on overcrowded
routes and shuttles for students
displaced from their parking lots on
football game days.
Both parties take a swing at the
alcohol issue but from different
angles.
Gator pledges to lobby against 21-
and-over admission to Gainesville
dubs. The party also suggests clos-
ing portions of University Avenue


on game days "to promote the safety
and spirit of the Gator Nation."
Impact, on the other hand,
hopes to create a campus Alcoholics
Anonymous program and to "pre-
~ serve the rights
of students un-
der 21 to party
under the rule of
law."
Gator is push-
ing especially
hard for additional bike racks at
residence halls, which Philpot said
students need.
Internet voting, besides being a
platform issue, is one of Impact's
three core values along with smarter


spending and ending legacy posi-
tions in SG.
Impact also vows to permanently
fund the USA Today / New York
Times Readership Program, which
SG previously paid for from reserves
and did not budget this year.
The Gator Party promises to
meet with students monthly at
"Gator Greetings" to get feedback
on campus issues.
Gator's platform also includes
the renovation of the Reitz Union
Rion Ballroom and the Student
Activities Center. This initiative,
however, was approved Sept. 9 by
UF's highest governing body, the
Board of Trustees.


Gator Party's previous SG experience goes up against Impact Party's diversity


IM PACT, from page 1


"It's more about your ideals that you bring
to the table, instead of strictly your resume,"
said Impact District A Senate candidate
Ben Freeman, the assistant director- of SG's
Outreach Cabinet.


Gator District A Senate candidate Josh
Weiss, a member of Preview 2005, said Gator
has some things going for it.
"When you bring in a large amount of
people without much experience it's not go-
ing to run as smoothly," he said. "One of the
big things we have behind us is experience.
[Gator leaders] have done it before, so they
know what students want."


However, he added having know-how that
previous experience brings isn't essential.
"Experience just helps that person getting
theirjob done better," he said.
However, Roberts said members of Impact
should be willing to learn and adapt.
"It's important that the party has experience,"
he said. "You have to learn at some point."-
Impact District A Senate candidate Emilie


Cox, a Campus Talk columnist who has no
previous SG experience, said being in the SG
system for a long time doesn't mean much.
"I find a lot of times experience just trans-
lates into knowing how to manipulate the
system better," she said.

"At the end of the day, it's Student
Government," she said. "It's just responsibly
spending money."

UF commended for need-based scholarship program


* BILL FOR LEGISLATURE CONTROL
OF TUITION RATES DEBATED.

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org

ORLANDO While UF hasn't yet reached
its goal of becoming a Top 10 public research
institution, it is already a leader among
Florida's schools, a Board of Governors official
said Thursday.
Carolyn Roberts, chairwoman of the body
that oversees the state's 11 public universities,
commended UF President Bernie Machen


G~bw


A program presented by the Reitz Union
CUm e4; I 1TC n,,--n n.Ah Cer-, n 1 In


for establishing the Florida Opportunity
Scholarship in an effort to reach out to under-
privileged minority students.
The scholarship, aimed at students who
are economically disadvantaged and the first
in their families to attend a four-year college
or university, was created earlier this year and
allocated $1 million in funding.
"There is a hole in our financial-aid sys-
tem," Machen said, adding that many under-
privileged students are unable to qualify for
need-based aid because their families make
more than the poverty line. Though they might
qualify for the Bright Futures Scholarship
Program, they don't have the money to pay
for living costs.

Roberts urged other university presidents
to follow Machen, requesting that each school
design its own minority-recruitment plan.
"I encourage all presidents to be creative
and specific" in strategies, she said.
Machen con-
U F tinued to push for
Administration more need-based aid
initiatives during a
discussion about the
restrictions of a new tuition-control bill before
the Florida Legislature.
The bill, authored by Rep. J. Dudley
Goodlette (R-Naples), would give the
Legislature complete power in determining
state university tuition rates.

However, some board members argued
the body needs the authority to establish those
.costs in order for Florida colleges to remain
competitive with other university systems.
While Machen said he doesn't oppose the
board's goal to gain control over state educa-
tion costs, he expressed concerns about an-
other potential increase in tuition rates.
. "If you all take the responsibility of ensur-
ing we don't go crazy with this, that'll be
fine," Machen told the board, adding that
he thinks most people want a portion of the
tuition increases set aside for need-based
financial aid.
Roberts said some of the revenue would
likely be reserved for that purpose.

Editorial
Another week is over.
Why does it feel like a hundred years?
Maybe it's because these pages have been getting a lot of
action lately.
The faculty union won a hard-fought battle, FEMA
Director Michael Brown quit, and diversity issues came to the
forefront.
The Editorial Board is seriously ready for an ice-cold beer
and a smooth drag from a hookah. A personal belly dancer
might be nice, too.
But we still have some catching up to do.
We let our bubbling fury and idealistic righteousness get
the best of us last week and gave Student Government all our
DARTS & LAURELS space.
It didn't even work. That $1.5 million is as good as the Reitz
Union's. So long, Bandshell.
After a big chunk of that money redecorates the Rion
Ballroom, the Editorial Board is going to hold its meeting
there, complete with caviar and champagne.
This week, however, we're going to lay off SG.
In fact, we're tired of fighting in general.
Can't we all get in a circle, join hands and sing "kumbaya"?
We'll bring the hot dogs and s'mores.
Wait. Who are we kidding? We love to wrestle.
So gather your peace pipes, put on your hemp necklaces
and gather 'round as we begin this week's edition of...


Darts & Laurels
We'll start off lovey-dovey by handing a we-love-you-dad-
even-though-we-sometimes-throw-a-fuss LAUREL to UF
President Bernie Machen for acknowledging the Alligator's
independence and value at Tuesday's Student Senate meeting.
Amid calls to kick the paper off campus due to anger over a
certain editorial cartoon, Machen said he wouldn't consider the
plea because he believes the Alligator serves a purpose and is an
effective way to communicate with the students.
Although he agreed with those who found the cartoon of-
fensive, he said he couldn't control the Alligator (we're inde-
pendent) and wouldn't want to if he could.
It's good. to know our president values a free, uncensored
press.
And maybe that press does help get some positive things
done with its political commentary.
We pin a we-knew-you-guys-were-filled-with-creativity-
just-waiting-to-explode LAUREL on Student Government for
dropping the $50,000 towel idea and replacing it with a $9,000
solution.
Instead of paying for the purchase and laundering of towels
for the Southwest Recreation Center, officials have decided to
buy alcohol wipes for sweaty machines and bodies.
The money will come out of the Recreational Sports budget.
To set everything right in the world, now all we have to do is
save our schoolchildren from being brainwashed.
A recent court ruling has alleviated our worries.
We toss a thanks-for-not-waffling-and-actually-doing-your-
job LAUREL to District Court Judge Lawrence K. Karlton for
ruling that it is unconstitutional to stop class time so pub-
lic-school children can recite "under God" in the Pledge of
Allegiance.
The issue was last left at the U.S. Supreme Court, which
evaded a ruling through a technicality: The man bringing the
issue to court didn't have primary custody of his daughter and
thus didn't have the right to argue on her behalf.
We think the whole pledge should be put to rest. It's archaic
and kind of creepy.
But we're not going to waste our time on the cause.
So we come right back and throw a please-focus-on-parent-
ing-and-stop-arguing-about-the-insignificant-parts-of-your-
child's-education DART at Michael A. Newdow, the father who
first brought the case to court back in 2002. He's also behind the
current case and has recruited more parents.
Newdow is way too obsessive. If we were his children, we'd
convert to Christianity just to piss him off.
But we're just controversial like that.

Column

Sept. 11 can't be remembered forever


Ihad hoped Hurricane Katrina's aftermath which
happened to include the four-year anniversary of the
Sept. 11, 2001 attacks would help give Americans
perspective. But a short plane trip home from Baltimore
proved that my hopes were unfounded.
On the plane, I glanced at a newspaper an older
gentleman was holding. A headline stretching across the
page in huge type set off all of my opinions-guy alarms:
"Historians Fear Attack Date's Significance Could
Fade."
Much to my dismay, my hunch was right. Once I got
home, I looked up the headline in the Washington Post
online and found an article based around historians'
fears that far in the future, Sept. 11 could become another
holiday celebrated as a free day from work rather than a
day of remembrance for a country-changing event.
I think the real danger is that we may allow ourselves
to continue hurting from the attacks that far in the fu-
ture.
One historian uses Memorial Day as an example. Few
know the significance of the holiday, originally known as
Decoration Day, which began in 1868 as a time to deco-
rate the graves of fallen Civil War soldiers.
That was 137 years ago.
Does anybody really believe we should spend as
much time remembering Sept. 11 in 2142 as we do now?
I don't think so.
There is no question the events of that day were a great
tragedy. However, the idea that Americans should hold
onto these tragedies for an eternity is absurd.
This is a problem in all aspects of American life. We live
in a time in which cute, white children who are kidnapped
receive months of close media coverage while thousands of
minority children suffering far worse are largely ignored.
We love to attach all of our sympathies to events we can
idealize rather than those that are more devastating but less
media-friendly.


Matt Sanchez
In Moderation
msanchez@alligator.org '


Even now, it doesn't take a lot of
thought to realize how much more
seriously the events of Sept. 11 were
treated than those surrounding
Katrina.
But if we're being honest with
ourselves, we know which one
is going to affect more American
,lives especially considering
early estimates that the death tolls
could eclipse Sept. 11's approxi-


mately 3,040.
Compared to tragedies faced by other nations, Sept. 11,
2001 is barely on the radar.
Frankly, Sept 11 didn't even change much. Some will
go on and on about how we realized we're not immune to
terrorism and that it was a wake-up call for the country's
consciousness.
But for all of that, all we really have to show in'its wake is
longer lines in our airports and a Department of Homeland
Security that is somehow catching much of the flak for the
Katrina disaster.
Were the events of Sept. 11 a great tragedy?
Unquestionably.
Do they belong on the short list of the greatest tragedies
in American history?
That's a little tougher. This country has seen a lot, and it's
hard to compare a single terrorist act to the prolonged hard-
ships of a war.
I hate to sound cynical, but it's a good bet we'll see far
worse in our next 135 years.
So let's remember the fallen, the broken families, the
disrupted lives. Let's give our hearts out to them while the
memories are still fresh and unimaginably painful.
And then let's move on.

Sceeterpaleeza

Local promoter gets his night


By CHER PHILLIPS
Alligator Staff Writer
cphillips@alligator.org

The only thing Scooter ever
wanted to do was promote a
homemade-bikini contest.
After 14 years of badgering bar
owners with contracts and mop-
ping up after partiers for $5 or
a smile, Pat "Scooter" Ward will
have not only his bikini contest
but also 15 minutes of fame as
one of Gainesville's most familiar
personages.
The event, dubbed
"Scooterpalooza," is the brainchild
of several local bar owners who
decided it was time to give Scooter
his day.
Tonight, The Venue, 233 W
University Ave;, will host The
Chris McCarty Band as well as a-
Hawaiian Tropic Bikini Contest in
Scooter's honor, and .patrons can
register with Breakaway Vacations
to win a cruise for Spring Break
2006.
"To let Scooter have his night,
that's truly what the whole gist
of this is," said That Bar owner
Chuck Owens. "Love him or hate
him, you have to give Scooter
credit. He's Mr. Persistent. The
majority of people in Gainesville
know him or know of him."
Three generations of UF stu-
dents have hung out with Scooter
at various local bars. Scooter has
made a life of going to bars to so-


licit promotional work and chat up
the patrons and employees.
Despite his penchant for bars,
Scooter doesn't drink. And though
he is on Social Security due to a
learning disability, he's been work-
ing hard to accomplish- an event of
this magnitude.
"My mom and dad think I have
a learning disability following in-
structions at jobs," Scooter said. "I
just want to work my buns off and
make a lot of money."
One of Scooter's main aims is
to make money with .the event,
but his reason is not as
Off the mercenary as it might
Avenue seem.
"I want to get a
car so I can give my
friends rides home," Scooter said.
"I don't drink, everybody knows
that."
Scooter wrote his first contracts
to promote bikini contests on nap-
kins. He eventually moved up to
typing his documents on rented
computers at Target Copy.
Target Copy.Assistant Manager
Carlos Martinez said he's known
Scooter for four years, as the
would-be promoter would come
in every night for weeks to print
his contracts.
"He'd always say, 'This is the
one,'" Martinez said.
Scooter finally got his big break
when Owens and the owners of
Rue Bar, Breakaway Vacations and
Jewells Bar got together to make it


happen.
They created fliers with
Scooter's head superimposed over
the image of famous Notre Dame
football player Daniel "Rudy"
Ruettiger with the slogan "The
contract is signed."
Kevin Ward, Scooter's brother
and guardian, met with the own-
ers supporting Scooterpalooza.
They all agreed its focus is to do a
good deed.
Ward said that though his broth-
er is a landmark in Gainesville,
some bar owners have not treated
him well in the past. They offered
him $5 to clean the muck from be-
hind their bar and then left him to
sleep on park benches in the cold
because he missed his bus.
"He'll takeout the trash for a
smile," Kevin Ward said.
Scooter himself said one bar
owner told him he could promote
an event several years ago on April
1. The owner didn't tell him the of-
fer was only an April Fool's Day
joke, and Scooter convinced sev-
eral hundred people to show up to
closed doors.
As the face of the event, Scooter
is to receive promotional compen-
sation.
"Scooter's getting gifts and
other things from the event itself,"
Owens said. "We need to give
Scooter his day. So after 14 years of
Scooter trying to do this thing, we
decided to give him his day."
The doors for Scooterpalooza
open at 8 p.m. Cover is $10 for
patrons under 21 and $7 for 21
and over.

Alachua officer aids Katrina relief


Tricia Coyne / Alligator Staff
Lt. Jim Troiano returned to Gainesville this week after eight
days in Mississippi assisting with hurricane-relief efforts.


By JESSICA RIFFEL
Alligator Writer
jriffel@alligator.org

Alachua County Sheriff's Lt. Jim
Troiano did not expect the extent of,
hurricane damage he saw when he
arrived in southern Mississippi.
"'Wow' was my first word,"
Troiano said. "I couldn't believe it,
and I immediately went to prayer." -
Troiano, Alachua County Public
Information Biireau Chief, was de-
ployed to Harrison County on Sept.
5 to provide public information ser-
vices.
Harrison County, which encom-
passes the center of the three south-
ernmost counties in Mississippi,
experienced severe damage from
Hurricane Katrina. Harrison County
alone had a death toll of 83 as of
Monday, when Troiano left.
"It looked like a bomb went off
there," he said. "You'd expect to see
the kinds of things we saw in a war
zone not due to a natural disaster."
Troiano worked an average of 15
hours each day with a team of eight,
holding press conferences, putting
information on radio station WMER,
creating informational fliers for the
public and setting up a telephone line
to dispel rumors.


"Every day there'd be a rumor,"
Troiano said. "One was the debit card
rumor. The people who fled New
Orleans got $2,000 from the Federal
Emergency Management Agency in
the form of a debit card. The people
in Harrison thought they'd be getting
one too, but FEMA didn't feel they
needed the debit cards."
"You literally had to hold your
nose going through Gulfport
or you would vomit."
Lt. Jim Troiano
Alachua County Sheriff's Office

Troiano .also worked with his
team to facilitate hundreds of media
interviews, including some with The.
Disney Channel and Animal Planet.
Amid the rubble washed up by
the storm surge, he worked out of
the Emergency Operations Center in
a courthouse filled with six inches of
water before he arrived. At night he'
slept on a cot-in a mobile command
center trailer used as an operation
center by day.
The scene was not new to Troiano,
who helped in the aftermath of Florida
Hurricanes Andrew and Charley.
"I went down for Hurricane
Charley to do media relations, and


when we went down to Desoto
County, we saw some of the same
things, but not to the same proportion,
to the same magnitude or intensity, as
Katrina," he said.
As Troiano traveled through
Gulfport, Miss., he saw a hotel reduced
to its foundation and a small house
washed in by the storm surge.
"The smell going through there is
unbelievable rotting bananas and
rotting chicken," he recalled. "You
literally had to hold your nose go-
ing through Gulfport or you would
vomit."
Troiano said the high death toll
upset him because he wondered why
people did not leave when they were
told.
"We believe that the death toll would
have been much lower," he said.
Despite the amount of devastation,
he also saw signs of hope. Troiano saw
signs that read "Thank you for helping
us" and many American flags.
"The patriotic signs were en-
couraging," he said. "People really
couldn't thank us enough."
It, was great to see all the agen-
cies working together and different
types of people coming together for
the common good of humanity, he
said.
"It was an honor to be there."

Credibility of complaint questioned


HAZING, from page 1

But he said the fraternity ap-
proached him about dropping the
complaint in exchange for cash.
Devine said he told the members
he wouldn't drop the complaint unless
they met a list of requests.
He asked Pike to make internal
changes against hazing, compensate
him for what was stolen and punish the
members involved in the hazing and
those who stole his belongings.
After none of his demands were
met, Devine said he continued with the
allegations.
This isn't the first time Devine has
decided to withdraw the complaint.
After filing the complaint with the
dean's office in June, he withdrew it for
unknown reasons and then decided to
follow up on it in July.
The complaint was originally


filed with former Director of Student
Judicial Affairs Cyrus Williams, who
allegedly told the fraternity he wasn't
going to act on it.
"When this came on his (Williams')
desk, he said there was no proof of
anything and he wasn't going to take
action on it," Allen said.
Crandall re-opened the case when
Williams left office in August.
Williams declined to comment on
his involvement.
It is unclear whether the dean's
office will file charges because in his
request to withdraw the complaint,
Devine did not deny hazing occurred.
Allen said the fraternity would co-
operate fully with the university in its
investigation.
"In the Greek community, you're
guilty until proven innocent," Allen
said. "After the investigation takes
place, we are confident nothing will
come of this."


Gators' biggest fan recalls 56-year quest


2-BITS, from page 1
"Two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar," he shout-
ed. "All for the Gators, stand up and holler!"
The cheer kept expanding, and it wasn't
too long before everyone started calling him
Mr. 2-Bits.
But before he- was known for his cheer,
Edmondson was a student at The Citadel.
In 1942 just after his freshman year, he with-
drew from college to serve in World War II as a
Navy pilot in the South Pacific.
When he returned in 1945, Edmondson
worked as an insurance salesman in New York
City and eventually in Tampa, where he now
lives.
On Nov. 14,1998 at the UF-South Carolina
game, Edmondson retired Mr. 2-Bits.
The following year he was asked to -come


back and make a cameo appearance at the pre-
game sbow. Edmondson said he had a hard
time sitting in his seat, so Mr. 2-Bits returned.
"I did retire, but I didn't quit," he said. "If
Michael Jordan can come out of
On retirement, so can I."
Campus But the Florida sun is becom-
ing too much for him, he said,
and he does not want to risk falling down and
injuring himself.
"Oh, I'll still come to the games," he said.
"But I'm just going to sit in my seat and watch
them like everyone else."
Edmondson said there will be no replace-
ment after he retires, making it known it's
impossible to replace Mr. 2-Bits.
"I never planned it would grow to what it's
become or that it would work out the way it
has," he said. "It just happened, and it's been
a lot of fun."

SFCC festival to


support disabled


By ALEXIS LLOYD
Alligator Contributing Writer

Corn dogs and cotton candy
will provide sweet rewards
for local 'disabled students and
Katrina victims during the 2005
SantaFest on Saturday.
Admission to the event is
free, but unlimited access to
the dunk tank, waterslides and
other carnival, games requires
the purchase of a $10 bracelet.
SFCC is hosting the event
at the Northwest Campus
in an effort to raise $10,000.
Ninety percent of proceeds
will fund the SFCC Plus One
Scholarship, and the remainder
will support the Hurricane
Katrina relief effort.


"Even if this helps one
person, it's worth it," said
Dianna Ordway, SantaFest
coordinator.
Those looking to kick back
and take it easy can enjoy live
performances by SFCC Dance
Theatre, Gainesville High School
Steppers, family and children
entertainer Anna Moo and sev-
eral others.
A silent auction with more
than $1,000 in donations begins
at 10 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m.
Ordway said she expects more
than 1,500 locals and students to
attend the event, which starts at
10 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m.
"Come on out, have fun and
help support the college's efforts
to help our students and the
community," Ordway said.


HURRICANE KATRINA

UF department sticks together


By DANNY ENRIQUEZ
* Alligator Contributing Writer

Jason Gainous has a new baby,
a new home and a pending Ph.D.
Now, the Hurricane Katrina
evacuee has more to worry about,
but a group of his associates at UF
are doing what they can to get him
back on track.
Faculty and staff members of
the UF political science depart-
ment are raising funds to support
Gainous, a UF doctoral candidate
who likely suffered significant
property damage due to Katrina.
In an e-mail he sent to Michael
Martinez, co-chair of his disserta-
tion defense committee, Gainous
detailed the destruction.
"Yes, I'm out of Mississippi
(Bay, St. Louis)," Gainous wrote.
"But I'm pretty sure our neighbor-
hood (including nearly all of our
possessions) is gone.. .literally.",
He had moved to Mississippi
to accept a position as a visiting as-
sistant professor at the University
of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast


but decided to evacuate when the
severity of the hurricane became
apparent.
Once word of Gainous' e-mail
spread throughout the depart-
ment, those who knew him
sprang to action.
"This is a guy who has
made an impact here
at this school on a lot of
levels." ,
Michael Martinez
Political science professor

"This is one of our own,"
Martinez said. "We really felt the
need to help out."
The group began by sending
a mass e-mail to faculty members
and graduate students. They then
posted fliers all over the depart-
ment building, imploring students
and passers-by to give whatever
financial support they could.
Martinez describes Gainous as
a gregarious "type A personality"


who kept an open- environment
in his classrooms. He spoke with
him via cell phone a few days after
receiving his e-mail.
"Jason is Jason," Martinez said.
"He was doing OK, considering
the circumstances."
It had been an eventful month
for Gainous, who became a father
Aug. 12. Three days later, Gainous
defended his dissertation before
moving to Mississippi to set up
his.new townhouse.
Gainous is staying with his
wife's family in Lakeland until
some Katrina-related issues get
sorted out. His future at the uni-
versity is "up in the air," according
to Martinez.
The group will continue to
collect monetary donations until
Sept. 19. That's when they plan
on calling Gainous to inform him
about the venture, although they
are unsure whether or not he has
found out.
Anyone who wishes to donate
can contact the UF political science
department at 392-0262.

Gators hope to learn from tournament


* WISE HOPES FOOTBALL CROWD
FILTERS IN TO WATCH VOLLEYBALL

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Writer

The word has been uttered so often, it's
almost as though a chorus is following the
No. 7 Gators around chanting, "Inexperience.
Inexperience. Inexperience."
-iUF found out what years of experience can
do first hand last weekend, as a Notre Dame
team that starts four seniors handed UF its first
3-0 loss since 2003.
As UF coach Mary Wise will be the first to
admit, you can't coach experience.
"Experience comes from playing matches,
and Notre Dame's four senior starters have
played every game of every match for three
straight years," Wise said. "You cannot fast
forward the experience, all you can do is get
playing time. We can't narrow that gap."


UF will continue to ratchet up its experience
level as it hosts the Campus USA Credit Union
Classic this weekend.
The Gators (7-1) will open with Indiana-
Purdue at Fort Wayne on Friday, and will play
the winner of Friday's match between Eastern
Michigan and UC-Irvine
late Saturday afternoon,
prior to the UF-Tennessee
football game.
This weekend's oppo-
nents represent a serious
step down in competition
for the Gators from last
Wise weekend's UTSA Dome
Rally, where they went 2-1
against three teams in the top 25.
That doesn't mean they'll be taking it easy.
"I mean, every game is a new experience for
us," setter Angie McGinnis said. "We learned a
lot from Notre Dame and how great a blocking
team they are, and we've been practicing that a
lot this week, so I think this weekend that will


be a good experience for us to get out there and
block as many balls as we can."
UF's matchup against IPFW resulted from a
tournament that was shifted from Gainesville
to Northwestern due to Hurricane Frances.
The Mastodons were one of the teams that
agreed to play in the relocated tournament on
short notice, and Wise invited them to UF this
season because she liked their style of play.
"I really like their team," Wise said. "They're
not big, but they are so well-coached, and they
have this really nice Brazilian outside hitter."
While Wise only had IPFW on her mind
this week, the weekend's main event will be
Saturday's match, regardless of opponent.'
When the Gators hosted UC Santa Barbara
prior to the football season opener, 4,798 fans
packed the O'Connell Center.
Wise is hoping for a similar turnout this
weekend.
"I'll be the only one in town hoping for a
little bit of rain at about 5:30 on Saturday," she
said.


Football Notebook
MEYER REMAINS MUM:
After his breakout performance against Louisiana
Tech, DeShawn Wynn should play a major role in
Saturday's game against Tennessee.
That doesn't mean he'll start. On Thursday Meyer
refused to name a starting tailback. True freshman
Kestahn Moore has started two consecutive games
but has gained just 35 rushing yards, sixth-best
on the team. Wynn already leads the team with
101 yards although he didn't play in the season
opener against Wyoming. "I'll announce [a starter]
tomorrow. Or Saturday," Meyer.joked. "What time
is the game, 8 o'clock? At 7:59 we'll make that
announcement."

MOSS MAKES STRIDES:
Jarvis Moss, once considered the top strong side
defensive end prospect in the nation, has played
just two games in two years. After suffering from
tendonitis in the knee, a hernia injury and a bone
injury that should have ended his season, Moss
- once down to 219 pounds has bulked up to
242 pounds and should see limited playing time
against Tennessee. "I'm proud of Jarvis," Meyer
said. "That was a lost soul about seven months
ago. That's not a lost soul anymore."

a lot to prove."
Mattison has already proved himself
once against the Volunteers. As the defen-
sive coordinator at Notre Dame last season,
Mattison's defense shut down Tennessee,
limiting the Volunteers to 98 rushing yards
and 114 passing yards in the 17-13 Irish
win in Knoxville. A key to that game was
. an effective pass rush, as the Irish knocked
starting quarterback Erik Ainge out of the
game with a separated shoulder in the first
half.
Despite his previous success against the
Volunteers, Mattison insists the defensive
schemes seen on the field Saturday will be ones
specific to UF
"No bag of tricks," Mattison said. "We're
just playing solid football, going out and play-
ing the best we can play."


SOCCER, from page 20

senior goalkeeper Jen Gardner said.
"UCF knocked us out last year, and
that's all the motivation that you need.
"That last loss was devastating, we're
ready to get it back and prove that was
just a fluke."
Freshman Katie Green witnessed the
loss firsthand ,on her official recruiting


visit to UF.
"Getting knocked out in the first round
is a big reason to want to come back and
show that we're worthy competitors,"
Green said. "I'm sure that people want to
set things straight."
Recent postseason history with

Gators to prove as well. Although

times. Also sporting a 13-7 record is Neil Diamond apologist Eric
"I'm a defensive coordinator trapped in a sports writer's body"
Esteban, who recently entered the Guinness World Records for
wearing a Publix baseball cap for the last five years, the longest
recorded period and he's still going.
Tied for third at 12-8 is president of the Portis-should-start
lobbyist organization Ian "I wouldn't pick Ron Zook and his stu-
pid Illinois team to win a game if they played P.K. Yonge" Fisher,
who evidently doesn't have a girlfriend after all, he just used his
vast knowledge of technology to create one.
Also at 12-8 is closet frat boy, Farzad "Yes, I have ghosts in my
closet" Safi, who we just discovered is the community service
director for Pi Sigma Alpha that's our Farzad, joining a frat for
academics, not booze and roofies.
Sitting near the bottom of the pile in next-to-last-place with


Seminoles, FSU won when it counted
the most.
"I think FSU is the biggest concern this
weekend as far as us really not knowing
them," Burleigh said. "It's a new coach
and ton of new players.
Added Burleigh: "The rivalry takes
over sometimes and lends itself not to the
smartest playing, but the hardest playing.
We've got to be smart and hard."


a sorry 11-9 record is Andrew "Don't touch that because I know
where I put it" Abramson, whose apartment clutter has over-
flowed into our newsroom, including a stale pair of sneakers
that's been under the desk for two weeks.
The distinction of last-place loser goes to Mr. 500 (10-10),
Louis "What do you expect, I'm the one who thought the Gators
would beat out North Carolina and overcome astronomical
odds to reach the Final Four" Anastasis, who couldn't pick his
own nose on a dry New Mexican summer afternoon.

Dear Fans:
The University of Tennessee and the University of Florida have a long-
standing history of spirited competition. This year is no exception
as our teams compete on Saturday in one of the more notable college
football games of the season. People from throughout the Southeastern
Conference are expected in Gainesville to join in the festivities. In order
to avoid potential problems and ensure that everyone has a safe and
enjoyable weekend, we want to share a few reminders.
First, in accordance with increased security efforts at public events, all
personal belongings are subject to search upon entry into Ben Hill Griffin
Stadium. Items deemed hazardous are prohibited from the stadium and
include such things as food and drink containers, coolers, backpacks,
umbrellas, strollers, etc. No storage space is available at the gates for
prohibited items.
In addition, there is zero tolerance for alcohol inside the stadium.
Individuals in possession of alcohol, or whose conduct is disorderly can
be arrested and ejected from the game. Students from both institutions
may also be subject to additional student judicial action that could result
in the loss of future ticket privileges and/or more serious sanctions.
Fans are not permitted on the field, nor are they able to re-enter.the
stadium once they leave the game. Please be courteous when standing
to cheer, and refrain from standing on the stadium seats. For more
information on stadium policies and the Fan Code of Conduct, go to
http://www.gatorzone.com/facilities/ and click on "Gameday Policies" at
the top of the page.
Recognize that there is always a strong police presence in the Gainesville
community on football weekends. Law enforcement officials routinely
enforce open container laws, and "party patrol" units with both the
Gainesville Police Department and the Alachua County Sheriffs Office
will be on the lookout for parties that have the potential to get out of
control..
These measures have been adopted to ensure that everyone has a safe and
enjoyable weekend. Our schools have a proud legacy of success, both on
and off the field. With your cooperation and assistance, this weekend will
be another proud chapter in this outstanding college competition. Be safe,
have fun, and show all fans good sportsmanship!

When you think of big-time college
football, sometimes the little guys get
left out. But surprisingly, the most suc-
cessful family in Tennessee football has
spent decades using their feet to keep
the opponent far out of Vols territory.
On Saturday, Tennessee freshman
Britton Colquitt will become the lat-
est member of an esteemed family to
start at punter for the Vols. Most of
Tennessee's important punt records
come courtesy of a Colquitt foot. So
here at the alligatorSports brand picks
column, I didn't seek out Craig (the
first Colquitt legend and a two-time
Super Bowl champion punter with
Pittsburgh), or Jimmy (highest punt
average in a UT game) or even Dustin
(current NFL rookie with Kansas City).
No, I went to the granddaddy of
tkem all. At 79-years-young, James
Colquitt should have started the family
klgacy. But he had bigger priorities.
"There were three of us back in
the '40s who were barefoot kickers,"
Colquitt said. "But when I finished high
school, I went to the Marine Corps in
World World I. I got shot at Iwo Jima in
1945 and I never could go to college. I'm
handicapped, my right arm is partially
paralyzed from a gunshot wound."
But yes, James was indeed a bare-
foot kicker and surprise, he can
still punt the ball. Said Colquitt: "I still
might punt one with my grandsons,
but I have to take my shoe off. I can't
kick one with my shoe on."
James, a lifelong Knoxville resident,
will root for Britton in his Southeastern
Conference debut, but admits that a win
is far from assured for his beloved Vols.
As for the rest of us pickers (and no,
we can't punt): tied for first at 13-7 a
piss-poor first-place record is future

Tennessee last season, while get-

UF's defensive line knows a
repeat performance isn't an op-
tion when Tennessee comes to the
Swamp Saturday.
"We want to keep doing what
we've been doing for the last two
games blitz, get at the quarter-
back every down," junior defen-
sive end Ray McDonald said. "Try
to make sure nobody comes in
the pocket. Something we really
didn't do last year, but this year, if
we can do that, it will be a different
turnaround than it was last year."
The new Gators' defensive line
is taking more pride in their work
this season. Even before spring
drills began, Coach Urban Meyer
ridiculed the front's 13.5 combined
sacks last season.
The defense responded with an
investment.
"The biggest thing I think is
that they're really invested," de-
fensive line coach Greg Mattison
said. "Starting in January, they
didn't want to be a defense that
everybody looked down upon.
They have great pride. They want
to come out this year and establish
themselves as a top defense."
So far, the Gators seem to be
on the way to achieving that goal,
racking up six sacks in their, first
two games. But Mattison knows
his unit has seen nothing like
the behemoths occupying the
Tennessee offensive line.
"As a D-line and defense that
wants to get over the hump, you
look for games like this," Mattison
said. "You're going against a real
powerful, big offense. You've got

In-state rivalries spawn hard UF play


By NICK ZACCARDI and
SPENCER DAVIS-VANNESS
Alligator Writers


This weekend, the Swamp isn't the only
source of collegiate rivalry.
The No. 13 Gators (4-1) will have a chance
to regain state bragging rights as they take on a
pair of in-state rivals.
UF hosts No. 16 Florida State (6-0) tonight
at Pressly Stadium, and then hits the road for
a Sunday afternoon grudge match against
Central Florida (2-5).
"It's a really exciting weekend for us," UF


coach Becky Burleigh said. "We are really
looking forward to it because the FSU game is
always such a great rivalry,
and we've just had some
Really exciting games with

"It seems like it's always
a pretty close game, there's
always little side stories and
sub-plots. It's a lot of fun.
Gardner Our players get really up
for it, and I'm sure they do
as well."
In three of theirpastfourNCAATournament


appearances, the Gators have been eliminated
by one of the two teams, most recently falling
3-2 to the Golden Knights in last season's open-
ing round.
"The rivalry with FSU has a little m6re his-

freshest right now, that's the one that's sticking
in everyone's mind after last season."
The Golden Knights' victory marked their
first win against UF in the series' nine-game
history.

Vols top dog

of UF's season
By A~DREW ABRAMSON
AllTgator Staff Writer
aab mson@alligator.org
Jeremy Mincey adnrts that from a fan perspective, no
UF rivalry compares to the yearly duel against Florida
State.
But ask Mincey what te most important game of the
season is, and the answer islclear.
"Tennessee means a lot because this puts our mark in
the polls," Mincey said. "[There's] confidence that if we
win this game it will help us ltg time." .
Big time, indeed. A UF victory will put the Gators
in the Southeastern Conference East driver's seat. The
Gators would find themselves fn a comfortable spot,
meaning they could likely lose a conference game and
still make it to the SEC championship game.
A loss on Saturday, however, agd the Gators would
almost certainly need to win-out and hope for a couple
of Tennessee losses down the road. I
Basically, the Gators need to win.
"I don't care what I have to do to make a huge play,
I'm willing to do it. I don't care what Ahave to do to get
my team going, I'm willing to do it," MIincey said. "It's
just a game where we're going to have fo go all. out."
UF hasn't defeated Tennessee in (Cinesville since
1999. The Volunteers have an extremely rare opportu-
nity to defeat the Gators three consecutive times at the
Swamp.
The last team to technically accomplish the feat was
Alabama. The Crimson Tide defeated the (ators in 1973,
1979 and 1986. The two teams didn't meet i1T Gainesville
between those years.
The Gators, however, don't care abott statistics.
What they do care about is last year's disaler against
Tennessee, when an 8-point lead with seven minutes
remaining became a 2-point loss. I
"[We] know that [we] could have won," Mipcey said.
"And we had the opportunity to do it, but it diotn't work
out that way."., I
Considering how dose UF and Tennessee are ranked
in various polls, the most highly-anticipated college
football game of the week could easily go ip either
team's favor.
"This game right here determines a lot of odr future
for the season," Mincey said. "We try not to puL that in
our head and take it one game at a time, but we &ll know
how big this is." I
One thing is for certain with what's at stake, there
will be no shortage of adrenaline on either sideline.
"I don't thiyk you need extra juice for thisigame,"
linebacker Brandon Siler said. "It's Florida [vs.]

changed his life, Baker planned on making the two-and-a-
half hour drive to New Smyrna Beach inp'rder surprise his
family at his sister's church recital. .1
"His little sister is his heart," Lolita explained. "She cheers.
him up a lot." '
But considering what Baker had endured within the last
12 hours, this was no mere homecoming; it was a'pilgrim-
age. \

Dallas Baker has matured in several ways during the
past yea, especially in the cla sroom.


summer, but I couldn't really catch it because I had to go to
church every time."
Unless he wants to up-chuck his Pop Tarts, perhaps it's
better that way. 1 %
If he had seen the feplay, he woul ve witnessed
Tennessee defensive b/ck Jonathan Wade clock him in the
helmet within plain sight of side judge Bobby M reau.
He would've washed helplessly as his lanky arm slung
,back for retribution And seen Moreau call him foray personal
I foul while ignoring the antagonist. I
"It kind of shocked us; though, because guys have
pushed him around on he field before, and heftever would
retaliate," said Baker's stepfather Herbert. I used to tell him
sometimes, 'You've got to tofgherjp.now boy. You're play-
ing football.' It's a rough game here you know."
What happened after the slap, Baker knows all,too well.
The game clock, failing to restart after the penalty,
remained inexplicably stuck on 43 seconds, giving the
Volunteers ample time to assemble a drive.
Tennessee kicker James Wilhoit then hit a 50-yard field
goal to steal the 30-28 win.,
"I was so upset from seeing it. I hated it," said Lolita, who
watched the game at home. "I wish I could have been there
just to put my arms around him. I knew he was hurt, looking
at him with the cameras on him, the way his head was."
As the clock ticked down, Baker sat on the bench hunched
over with a towel drawn over his face in shame. Pundits
punished him, and analysts abused him. But worst of all,
Baker blamed himself.

NO...THANK YOU
Like some violent tribal ritual, Baker had undergone a rite
of passage on the sideline of Neyland Stadium that night.
Blessed with the support of teammates and coaches, he
escaped Knoxville with only a bruised ego, but back in Gator
Country, some bitter fans looked to break it.
Among the graffiti covering the wall along Southwest 34
Street, one facetious mural read, "Thanks Baker."
"It made me feel bad because I was already beating myself
' up," Baker admitted. "I thought I lost the game by myself.
\ "I think I was harder on myself because that is something
that any player, even if you're not coached that well, you
should'be able-to stop yourself from doing that,"
Ori mpus, random students still badger Baker's team-
mates.
'"They keep bringing up 'Tell Dallas Baker not to make
any foolish penalties,'" defensive end Jeremy Mincey said.
'" It kind of makes me mad because he didn't cause the game.
It wasn't him. We missed field goals. We missed touchdowns
k the redzone. We made foolish mistakes on defense. It goes
back from the beginning ofthe game."
hfter the slap, Baker didn't expect his teammates' sympa-
thy, let al pe their aid'fi his defense.
"It makes me proud," Baker said. "It shows me that we're
starting to become a family. Once we're a family, it's hard to
beat a team like that."

METAMORPHOSIS
Baker left his stepfather's church that Sunday with
little advice. That's the way he wanted it. He sought inde-
pendent redemption.
His melt-down in Knoxville provided a shot of reality.
It was time to grow up.
"After that game, if you didn't grow up, something
is wrong with you," Baker said. "That game helped me
mature real fast.
"Now, it's all about making yourself do it when you
don't feel like it."
The hiring of Coach Urban Meyer and his no-nonsense,
live-right staff only expedited the nmaturatiory process.
Meyer's staff prides itself on promoting excellence not

Dqllas Baker has started the season hotter than ever,
recording five receptions in each of UF's two games.
o ly on the field but in life an general, including in the
classroom.
Never a stickler for academics, Baker said the new staff
helped push him to epel. Then, during the spring it paid
off with a7 or-atnicroeconomics exam.
By the way his mother reacted, you'd thought he won
the Heisman.
"I called her up and told her what happened," Baker
said. "She didn't have the chance to tell me congratula-
tions because she just started crying. Once you experience
stuff like that,'it just gives you the edge to try to d6 it every
time.
"Before, most of the football players didn't do so well
in school. So you start to makeup excuses and say, 'Well, I
don't care about school very much anyway.' Bukonce you
start making those grades, you know you can do it. so you
start trying a little bit harder."
Brandishing a new scholastic work ethic, Baker is final-
ly receiving some pigskin pointers from his uncle, former
UF receiver and four-time Pro Bowler Wes Chandler.
Before, conversations between, Baker and his uncle
consisted mainly of academic pep talks. Now, Chandler,
the wide receivers coach for the Minnesota Vikings, offers
pro-caliber instruction. His primary message to Baker:
block and block well.,
And perhaps a sign of his maturity, the guy who goes by
Dallas Baker "The Touchdown Maker" on Facebook.com,
seems more preoccupied with throwing himself at defen-
sive backs than blazing past them.
A sage of his former self, Baker admits he's still learn-
ing how to be a man.
"I'm still working on it," Baker said. "Even once you
get married, you still have to learn some things."
But he has learned what to do the next time he's sucker
punched: "Just go to the next play."


..Lb .t...
Yet how many times will we seef it this
weekend? Local TV stations will air i4, as will
CBS and probably SportsCenter wh4n it sets
the stage for the game's highlights. I
You will see it, yet what will youi think?
""As'-mie has passed, you have'learned to
forget the py, but have you forgiven? I still
hear the malicious whispers. I still smell the
antagonism lik eome filthy, stale Natty Light.
You have moved on from th? play, but have
not made peace with the payer. To many,
Baker still doesn't catch enough balls, still
doesn't vacuurp in enough touchdowns.
No good, you say. When he caught five
balls againt Wyoming, yod thought, well he
Sdid-it against Wyoming. When he dropped
two difficult touchdowns against Louisiana
Tech, you yelled, "Told 'a."
But judging Baker with touchdowns would
be about as fair as defining Shaq's career by his
free-throw percentage/
Watch Baker Satqrday just him, no one
else. Watch him block. Yes, block.
Because as mucl( as Baker has matured off
the field with his studying and discipline and
spirituality he has grown on the field.
"Let's say thahI score three touchdowns in
a game, but I miss five blocks that could have
resulted in five teShawn Wynn touchdowns,
then think about that," Baker said. "He
wouldn't likethat. A complete player needs to
catch and block."
Don't get him
wrong, now. He still
needs touchdowns the
same way ying needs
yang. But he's patient
with it and you should
JLouiS be too.
Apastasis "I'm not really wor-
Louis in the Bullpen ried about it, because
lanistasis@alligator.org eventually it's going to
come," Baker said.
/ Baker's story is one
c\qf maturity. After he made a habit of poor
summers and autumns, he has reincarnated
undbr Urban Meyer.
Hehas wiped the dust off his textbooks,
found God and, better yet, found himself.
Whqt a perfect time to make peace with the
player, Ivith the man.
In each of his first two games, he has caught
mor/passes five than most of his career
pmes.
More importantly, this coaching staff is
throwing him the ball, a supernatural phe-
nomenon in these parts.
Baker won't take away from Chad
Jackson's or Bubba Caldwell's glory. He won't
make excuses. He won't miss blocks.
"Football is serious now, whereas before I
kind of took it for granted," Baker said.
Isn't it about time you stop taking him for
granted as well?
See his commitment, his dedication. This
2005 Baker will not flop on or off the field.
A reporter from a major newspaper bet a
fellow Alligator columnist that Baker would
fail to catch 30 balls this season. He will catch
many more. Here's to hoping he doesn't catch
any more unwarranted flak as well.

UF PASS vs. TENNESSEE PASS DEFENSE:
UF passes for 272.0 yards per game; Tennessee allows 282 yards passing per game.
KEY PLAYERS: UF: Jr. QB Chris Leak (539 yds, 5td-01int, 69.6 pct, 180.0 rating), Jr. Chad Jackson (15, 243, 16.2, 4); Jr. Dallas Baker (10, 107, 10.7, 0) UT: Sr. CB Jason Allen (13-1-4), So. FS Jonathan Hefney,
(3-1-4).
ANALYSIS: UF may have the top passing game in the SEC, but matching up against Allen is a grueling task. Allen led the conference in tackles last season and will be a great test for the Spread 'n' Shred.
Look for Meyer to open up the playbook, however, and spark some ESPN Top 10 material.

',, .;- ANALYSIS: Tennessee's passing game did little against UAB, prompting Philip Fullmer to replace Erik Ainge with Clausen. Don't expect too much to change Saturday. UT's receivers aren't anything to
brag about, especially facing a reenergized and improved Gators' secondary.

INTANGIBLES:
The nation's top game of the week could also be the most competitive. Last year's game came down to the final seconds, and this year could mean more of the same. Both UF and
Tennessee are loaded with talent, and enter the game.evenly-matched. A young Gators' team nearly won last year's game in Knoxville, which is a promising sign for UF as it tries to win at
home against the Volunteers for the first time since 1999.
