TENNESSEE 7 I1 UF16



U F 3-0 for first



time since '01


By LOUIS ANASTASIS
Alligator Staff Writer

Entranced by the tune of
90,716 head-ringing Pied Pipers,
the Gators rushed onto the field.
Clearly, they did not realize
that 24 seconds remained.
"We just want to tell all
our fans that we ap-
preciate every one of
them."
Chris Leak
UF quarterback

Clearly, it had been a while
since the Gators had reason to
frolic across the Swamp's turf in
a mad, triumphant daze.
Excuse the football team it
had forgotten how to celebrate.
"This is a huge game,"


kicker Chris Hetland said. This
puts this program back where
it needs to be, back where we
want it to be."
And so players quickly re-
membered how to rejoice after
the 16-7 win against Tennessee.
In their second take, players
stormed the field with 14 sec-
onds left, obviously incapable
of suppressing the excitement of
burying a past, of laying a foun-
dation for many more big-time
Swamp wins.
"It's definitely a big start,"
linebacker Brandon Siler said.
"We haven't taken back the
Swamp yet because we haven't
won a bunch of big games,
but you start by winning a big
game."
With dreams of an SEC
championship dancing through
their cheery heads, they hopped.

The Dean of Students Office will con-
tinue its investigation of hazing accusations
against Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity, even
though the student who made the accusa-
tions withdrew his complaint in an e-mail
late Thursday.
"We'll go on and continue with it,"
Associate Dean of Students Paige Crandall
said. "I don't think it'll cause any delay."
Though Troy Devine, the student who
filed the complaint, asked itbe withdrawn, he
never denied that hazing had taken place.
"I do have the satisfaction in the knowl-
edge that the behavior of the chapter will

never be the same again," Devine wrote in
the e-mail. "Change in a small way has been
forced, and I am confident hazing will no
longer happen." .
Crandall said although Devine withdrew
his complaint, he can still be involved with
the investigation if he chooses to
Greek do so.
Life Devine originally filed the
complaint, which gave details of
hazing procedures including physical hard-
ship and degradation, in early June.
He withdrew -the complaint despite not
receiving compensation from the fraternity
for $2,000 in property he said was damaged
by members, Devine said.

There are 17 student-adjunct seats
in city advisory boards and committees
open to any UF or SFCC students who
want to get involved in city politics. -
"Because we are in a college town,
this helps to make the board represen-
tation more representative of the city
itself," said Clerk of Commission Kurt
M. Lannon.
Students can apply for a seat
in boards such as the Gainesville/
Alachua County Cultural Affairs
Board or the City Beautification Board.

decisions, they can participate in dis-
cussions as much as a normal board
member, Lannon said.
UF Student Government is en-
couraging students to apply for these
positions.
"It's very important for us to have
a student voice in city affairs," Lobby
Coordinator Thomas Philpot said.
He also said it is essential for stu-
dents' views to be heard by the City
Commission, even if they cannot vote.
"I think we are definitely under-
represented downtown, and this is a
very important step," he said. "The
City Commission is very open to hear-
ing our opinions and perspectives, and
it's up to us to make sure we get it
downtown."-

Students embrace heritage at European culture festival


By JENNA TIGHE
Alligator Contributing Writer

The Center for European Studies
held UF's first Festival of European
Cultures on Friday thanks in part to
a grant from the European Union.
The EU contributed 4,300 euros
for the event.
"The EU gave us the grant
because it wanted to promote the.
study of Europe in the U.S.," said
Petia Kostadinova, assistant pro-
gram director of the center.
The main goal of the festival was
to educate students on the impor-

tance of studying Europe and the
EU.
"The EU is the largest foreign
direct investor in the state of Florida
and an important economic, po-
litical and military ally of the U.S.,"
Kostadinova said.
The festival was a culmination of
a series of four events organized by
the center.
The festival included 19 informa-
tional booths that provided students
with information regarding differ-
ent countries and UF student as-
sociations, dubs and study-abroad
programs.


"This kind of event makes
people aware of different
types of cultures and con-
ditions in the world."
Christos Tralkos
Vice president of the Greek Ameri-
can Students Association

The booths included students
representing Ireland, Turkey,
Poland, Portugal, Greece, Bulgaria,
Hungary, the Czech Republic,
the Slovak Republic, Romania,
Spain, Italy, Croatia, France, Serbia,


Montenegro, and Bosnia and
Herzegovina.
The booths gave student associa-
tions a chance to educate students
about their countries' culture and
also to recruit members. -
"I'm active in this because I'm
really proud of my nationality, and I
like to feel like I'm a part of a bigger
community," said freshman Joanna
Blaz, co-secretary of the Polish
Student Association.
The festival gave UF students a
chance to visit each booth and learn
about what the country's student as-
sociation does and how to join.


"This kind of event makes people
aware of different types of cultures
and conditions in the world," said
sophomore Christos Traikos, vice
president of the Greek American
Students Association.-
The festival also gave students
from the various dubs and student
associations a chance to meet people
from other countries.
"We are a rich university both ac-
ademically and culturally, but if you
don't hold these types of events, no
one knows about each other," said
Ewa Wampuszyc, faculty adviser
for the Polish Student Association.

On the Strip

UF anthropologist braves Gaza, secures piece of history


By RESHELLE SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Most people run away from bombs, but
Gerald Murray traveled to them this summer.
The UF anthropologist spent a month
studying the Ganei Tal settlement in the Gaza
Strip, as Israeli settlers were preparing to leave
behind their homes and livelihoods as part of
the Israeli government's plan to evacuate the
war-torn area under Palestinian control.
"I wanted to see that community, this
region of Israel, in its final months, its final


weeks, just before it was disappearing," he
said.
Murray's journey to the region began in the
spring of this year after receiving a grant from
UF's Center for Jewish Studies that included
funding for a month of study in Israel. He de-
cided that Gaza was where he. wanted to go.
. Murray wanted to learn about Israeli moti-
vation in settling the strip, their relationships
with Palestinians and how they felt about
leaving. He mostly studied'the Ganei Tal com-
munity, interviewing people to get answers to
these questions.


UF anthropology professor Gerald Murray talks to his class Thursday about his work in
the Gaza Strip in Israel.


During his stay, he got used to terrorist at-
tacks, perfected his Hebrew and learned about
a place even most Israelis do not visit.
Friends and family thought he was crazy,
but his wife was a bit more understanding,
he said.
"When she married me 33 years ago, she
knew she was marrying an anthropologist,"
he said. "I just told her that I got a grant to go
there, and I'm going."
While others worried for his safety,
Murray's biggest fear before leaving was that
he.wouldn't be able to get into the region, he
said.
"You build yourself up psychically to do
something, you just want to do it," he said.
Through phone calls and e-mails he
learned to write in Hebrew, Murray received
two different stories about the accessibility of
Gaza. He said contacts in Jerusalem and Tel
Aviv told him he wouldn't be able to get in,
while people in Gaza said as long as he came
in early summer, he would have no problems
getting in.
After a plane ride and renting a car, he ar-
rived at the Gaza border.
"I was terrified," he said. "What was I do-
ing in a Budget rental car, by myself, driving
into the Gaza Strip?"
It ended up being easier than he thought to
cross the border.
"The cars in front of me were just driving
through without stopping, so I did the same,"
he said. "I was able to just drive right in."
In fact, everything he was worried about be-
fore the trip ended up working out, he said. He
got into Gaza, he found a place to stay and the
people accepted his presence and his research.
But that didn't mean things were easy.
Terrorist bombs were going off just a few hun-
dred yards away, he said.


"You hear an explosion a couple hundred
yards from you, but eventually, I began feeling
like the people themselves," he said. "You're
relieved when you hear the explosion because
it means it didn't hit you."
Just two days after he arrived, three people
were killed in a terrorist attack less than a mile
from his residence.
The trip took an emotional toll, he said. The
families he studied were preparing to leave
behind the community they built up from
sand dunes over the last 30 years.
"You hear an explosion a couple
hundred yards from you, but
eventually, I began feeling like the
people themselves. You're relieved
when you hear the explosion be-
cause it means it didn't hit.you."
Gerald Murray
UF anthropology professor

After they left, everything they built would
be torn down.
The families received about $200,000 to
$300,000 in compensation for their property.
For most, that amount would barely get a stu-
dio apartment in Jerusalem, he said.
, Many of the families, who just a few months
ago owned entire farms, arenow living in one-
bedroom apartments with the hope of moving
into mobile homes soon, Murray said.
For him, it was hard to ignore the upheaval
the people experienced.
"At night, I was having dreams about my
house being knocked down," Murray said.
Despite the bombs and the emotional re-
sponse the research brought, he said he would
do it all over again if he had the chance.
"This is an experience of a lifetime," he
said. "I was glad I did it."


Ongoing construction will cause RTS route changes


* THREE BUS ROUTES WILL
AVOID CENTER DRIVE.

By ALEJANDRA CANCINO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Regional Transit System routes 1,
8 and 35 will be modified beginning


Tuesday due to construction.
RTS' current schedules were
made without taking into consider-
ation delays caused by the construc-
tion.
Therefore, the routes were
modified to keep their "on-time
performance," said RTS Marketing
Coordinator Theresa Harrison in a
phone interview.


Because of the construction,
Center Drive has a one-way traffic
detour, in which cars
Student going in one direction
Life have to wait for the
road to open in the op-
posite direction to proceed.
To avoid this delay, routes 1 and
8 will use Newell Drive instead of
Center Drive, and route 35 will use


Gale Lemerand Drive.
The construction, which started
in late.June, is expected to be com-
pleted in three weeks.
However, excessive rain could
delay work because construction
would have to pump out water that
accumulates at the site, said Carroll
Miller Jr., operation superintendent
for Milton J. Wood Company.


Harrison said it is unknown
when the routes will go back to
normal.
Steve Logsdon, UF pharmacy
student, was upset about the routes'
modifications, which require him to
walk an extra block.
"It is an inconvenience, and it is
unacceptable for those of us who
have lots of loads to carry," he said.

Cartoon antics

UF officials should take

racism fight all the way
F riday is the newsroom's day off work.
You see, we don't print a paper on Saturday.
But the Editorial Board hears that more than 50 stu-
dents marched to our offices in protest of Tuesday's cartoon and
its use of the word "nigga."
Several UF administrators joined the effort.
We weren't there, but we get the point.
And we agree that "nigga" is a word that should don't be float-
ing around in our society. We agree the word should never
appear in a news story. We agree that it does not represent all
African Americans, by any stretch of the imagination.
But we're not going to apologize.
Instead, we want the administration, which has taken such a
strong stance on the situation, to take a look at its own policies.
UF President Bernie Machen calls on us to print an apology
because the cartoon "poison(s) the ongoing struggle to over-
come the racial barriers that divide our country."
If we're reading this right, Machen wants us to retract any
political commentary that propagates the use of, in his words,
"damaging stereotypes."
Fair enough. We understand and respect that position, even
if we disagree on whether the cartoon accomplished that.
So now we want Machen and administrators to follow
through with their grand ambition. -
In less than three weeks, Wayne Brady will grace the stage as
the main performer for Gator Growl. He will be paid $65,000.
Not familiar with his work? Brady is a black comedian who
uses "nigga" repeatedly in his stand-up.
And the administration approved his appearance at a pep
rally that is arguably the most well-known event at UP.
Will UF officials protest an artist they are bringing here
themselves? An artist who uses "nigga" in the same context as
,our cartoonist?
If'Machen was willing to prohibit all alcohol advertisements
in the Stephen C. O'Connell Center because they encouraged
drinking, he should be willing to pull Brady because he's propa-
gating the same "damaging stereotypes."
But he can't stop there. Brady is part of a trend. -
Charlie Murphy should have never stepped on campus.
"Nigga" flows from his mouth like the Mississippi River.
Kanye West himself will perform at the O'Connell Center
soon. His lyrics are riddled with the word.
We want administrators to prove they don't want this kind
of racist commentary within the university. Instead, they seem
to be encouraging it. How irresponsible.
We have received many letters from students who resent
the way these black performers use racist words. This doesn't
represent their culture or their feelings on the issue. The entire
black community does not use the word "nigga."
But a part of the community definitely does.
In fact, the first letter we received on the issue was from
Black Student Union Treasurer Jeremy Watson. It turns out he is
one of those who spreads it throughout society.
He is part of a Facebook group called N*ggas that Pledge.
We doubt he is racist. But if we spread it, then so does he.
Protesting the Alligator for printing a cartoon that depicts an
existing cultural norm does not rid the world of that flaw.
We are the opinion section of a newspaper. We comment on
societal norms and politics by pushing the envelope.
So to UF administrators: We're glad you have taken this op-
portunity to open up a discussion on the danger of the casual
use of "nigga" in Gainesville and in the nation.
It means we've done our job.
Now run with the idea and actually take a stance.
Rather than focusing on a depiction of society, why don't
you actually go out and protest the real thing?

Guest column

Western aid needs to be tied to reform


Most families seem to have at least one deadbeat
uncle. .
You give your deadbeat uncle money when he
asks, even though you know he'll probably blow it on booze
or something stupid. You feel like you should be lecturing
him, but you're not sure how.
Africa is the Western World's deadbeat uncle.
If American and-European positions on Africa seem con-
descending, the effect is hot lost on African leaders. Libyan
dictator Muammar Gadhafi criticized "begging at the door-
steps to reduce debt" in the midst of June's G8 summit.
"We are insulted constantly, and we deserve it," Gadhafi
said. "We don't need assistance and charity."
Well, that's not exactly true, and most moderate African
leaders probably know that. But Western do-gooderism can
only go so far.
A drought crisis and invasion of locusts in Niger and
neighboring Mali has triggered a scenario jhat has played
out a hundred times in Africa. The .international community
didn't heed warning signs of the impending crisis, the gov-
ernment should have been better prepared, and the media
didn't care until the problems had begun.
Niger's prime minister is now in favor of ending large-
scale food aid. He's lashed out at donors for calling the crisis
a "famine" and said he does not want to make Niger depen-
dent on aid or suffer further loss of dignity.
One in four Nigerian children die before reaching the age
of 5, but apparently using the word famine is going too far.
But mass starvation might be preferable to the varying
high- to low-intensity conflicts or human rights abuses rag-
ing in Sudan, Congo, Somalia, Burundi, Liberia, Zimbabwe,
Chad and the Ivory Coast.
On Wednesday, Western leaders opened another sum-
mit at the United Nations to increase developmental as-
sistance to Africa. This summit is called the World Summit
on Millennium Development Goals and was first adopted in
September 2000. Its goal is to reduce poverty, hunger, infant

mortality rates and to contain the
spread of AIDS and other diseases.
Five years later, the successes of
this summit are questionable,
and its prospects are probably not
much better.
The aid rarely proves effec-
tive because of corrupt and in-
competent government officials.
Canceling debts will only take the


continent so far.
Mamadou Koulibaly, president of the National Assembly
of the Ivory Coast, posed the question: "How can aid be in-
creasingly provided to African governments without making
sure that the rule of law and transparency are promoted as
the strategic framework to improve living conditions?"
In less eloquent words, why not link aid to good demo-
cratic governments?
President Bush talks a lot about the universality of de-
mocracy and freedom. He seems to believe it, but I doubt
most Americans do. Liberals, conservatives and centrists
alike are generally skeptical of efforts to push democracy on
foreign nations and cultures.
But maybe the world should be taking more of an interest
in promoting democracy in Africa and not just alleviating the
suffering caused by bad governments.
Maybe if the world threw more of its weight behind
democrats, the cash raised at the Live 8 concert wouldn't
end up lining the pockets of bureaucrats, warlords and their
cronies.
Handing over money without demanding significant
reform is a dangerous thing.
Free aid is what allowed Yasser Arafat to stay in power, it
allows Kim Jong 11 to continue his failed brand of socialism,
and it keeps your deadbeat uncle coming back for more.

Readers deserve apology


Iam writing to express my deep
concern regarding Tuesday's edito-
rial cartoon depicting Condoleezza
Rice using a racial epithet.
Such depictions reinforce hurtful
and damaging stereotypes. They poi-
son the ongoing struggle to overcome
the racial barriers that divide our coun-
try, and give comfort to bigots who
seek affirmation for their racism.
My reaction is shared by the m-ny
UF students and faculty members
who contacted me last week.
We were disgusted by the image
and discouraged that such an insensi-
tive cartoon could be published in a
newspaper that, while independent
from the university, is written and
edited by UF students.
The right to freedom of expression
is fundamental to our democracy.
But with that right comes responsibil-
ity, one shirked by the cartoonist and
the Alligator's editors. The ongoing


problem of
racial injustice
in this coun-
try with
Sits legacy
Bernie Machen of dashed
Speaking Out hopes and
blatant dis-
crimination
--demands sensitive and measured
discussion, not flip and irresponsible
commentary.
Although it should have hap-
pened earlier, the Alligator can still
acknowledge it erred with an apol-
ogy to its readers. Its editorial staff
should commit to approaching the
subject of race in a meaningful and
constructive way.
Most of all, the Alligator should be
cognizant of how its actions affect the
entire community, and treat its respon-
sibilities with the gravity they deserve.
Bernie Machen is president of UF.


Letters to the Editor
Cartoon hatefullydepicts Democrats
Regarding Thursday's cartoon concerning
Supreme Court Justice nominee John Roberts,
I believe it was extremely irresponsible of the
Alligator to use the term "Dem" in referring to
the Democratic community.
As a member of the Democratic Student
Union, I am shocked and appalled by the
Alligator's complete disregard for the proper
name of our political party. I concede that most
Democrats have adopted casual use of the word
"Dem," but I believe in the end this causes set-
backs to the mission of the Democratic Party.
The term "Dem" evolved hundreds of years
ago as an exclusionary term (i.e. "Dem people"
as opposed to "We people"). Plainly, the term is
hateful. I strongly protest the pedestrian use of
this term, and I urge the Alligator to cease and
desist from using it in the future!

Student gates hazardous and pointless
The University Athletic Association's han-
/dling of student admission at football games
has become a danger to students who are re-
quired to enter only through student gates.
Thousands of students, including myself,
live and tailgate west of the stadium, and it
makes no sense to make us enter through the
east gates. It creates a hazardous situation as
people are clustered into the walkway, running


into thorn bushes and random pipes. Not to
mention the-added danger of heat stroke and
dehydration that causes many students to
spend the game in a first aid station.
If UAA wants to make Gator football as fun
and safe as possible, it should consider opening,
all gates for all ticket holders. I think adding a
few more Gator 1 Card scanners at other gates
is a better idea than forcing ticket holders into a
dangerous situation.

UF should not allow alumni to trash area
I understand our university makes much of
its profit from football and that alumni donate
large sums of money to this institution.
But UF should not allow alumni to trash our
campus every weekend. Machen's attempt to
reduce the drinking problems of our commu-
nity seems absurd when we allow students'
parents and our alumni to make a debauchery
of themselves for 12 hours before a game.
I am not asking to make this campus dry;
that will likely do no good other than to reduce
the donations our school receives.
What I'm asking here is to be able to study
outside on the Sunday after a football game
and not find a chicken bone, dirty salsa lid and
tons of empty beer bottles on the tables.

Guest Column

Selective protest on cartoon casts doubt on true convictions


Cracka, please. Something
stinks my way, and it smells
like a sweaty, disingenuous
protest.
The gripe several students
and administrators voiced in the
days following Andy Marlette's
infamous editorial cartoon, which
was published in the Alligator last
week and featured Kanye West and
Condoleezza Rice, is wrong on sev-
eral levels.
In the cartoon, Rice said, "Nigga,
please" to West, who was portrayed
as playing the race card, presum-
ably for his comments during a
fundraising event for Hurricane
Katrina victims in which he said,
"George Bush doesn't care about
black people."
First, the Alligator, like any
newspaper, serves many purposes,
not the least of which is to entertain
its readers.


In the vast cultural experience
called entertainment, there are
many things that offend many
people.
For the record, the film "Garden
State" offended the hell out of me.
But take West for example. I
counted the word "nigga" six times
in his latest Top-5 release, "Gold
Digger."
Based on this song alone, those
protesting the Alligator for its word
choice would have to apply six times
that energy toward the rap prot6g6
or risk looking insincere.
And when one acknowledges
that "Gold Digger" is reaching tens
of millions of listeners and is being
heard over and over again, the up-
-roar toward West should drown out
those protesting Marlette's creative
expression all the more.
West will perform at the Stephen


Jim Ellis C. O'Connell
Speaking Out Center in a
few weeks.
Will the Black Student Union line
University Avenue with picket signs
calling for the rapper to retract his
racist rhetoric? It's doubtful.
Second, the n-word is such a part
of the urban American lexicon that
to blame Marlette is to blame the
inner city experience in which the
word finds approval. Marlette is
simply reacting to a cultural truth.
Notice the cartoon doesn't depict
a white person. It was a black wom-
an speaking to a black man.
The Alligator is the messenger,
not the message.
The 1997 movie "Jackie Brown,"
written by Quentin Tarantino, a
white man, featured an n-word
spouting black female in the lead.
Remember Pam Grier?


Instead of a revolt, Grier inspired
applause as a strong role model for
minority women, and all women for
that matter. She was even nominated
for an Image Award by the National
Association for the Advanicement of
Colored People for her performance
in the film.
I don't figure Condi will get the
same treatment for Marlette's work.
Do you?
UF Vice President of Student
Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin said in an
open letter Friday it was dear there
was "a need for further education"
with regard to expressing opinions
"civilly and with respect."
Oh, so that's why UF is bringing
West to Gainesville. In case Marlette
didn't enlighten the UF community
adequately, there would be a more
thorough opportunity for "further


education" from the hip-hop star
whose debut release was titled "The
College Dropout."
And let's be dear. The Alligator is
an independent entity, not officially
associated with UF. The O'Dome,
however, is not.
I hate racial remarks, and I might
even endorse Telles-Irvin's position
if it were genuine.
But it's not.
If you choose to be selective in
your protests finding fault with
some and not others don't expect
to win wide support.
It has to be all or nothing.
So when you become true to your
convictions, call me. And when that
day comes, I'll stand with you. And
so will countless others who hate
words that divide. -

STUDENT LIFE

Miss Florida comes home


By OLIVIA ORMOS
Alligator Contributing Writer

Marl Wilensky has been entering pag-
eants since she was 6 years old, but she'll be
hosting one tonight.
Wilensky, who became Miss Florida
earlier this month after the winner of that
pageant stepped down, will be master of
ceremonies for the UF Homecoming pag-
eant at 7 p.m. in the Phillips Center for the
Performing Arts. She will also appear in UF's
Homecoming Parade on Oct. 7.
"It is all very overwhelming, but
of course in a good way, and my
whole life just instantly changed
by that one phone call."
Mari Wilensky
Miss Florida


As Miss Florida, Wilensky received a
crown, a $15,000 scholarship and a shot at
being Miss America.
"I was in the airport reading a magazine
when I got the call," Wilensky said. "My first
instinct was to take it because I believe that
everything happens for a reason."
The 21-year-old accepted all the titles and
duties of Miss Florida.
"It was really emotional finding out I was
going to take the title just because it was so
unexpected," Wilensky said. "It is all very
overwhelming but of course in a good way,
and my whole life just instantly changed by
that one phone call."
She said she supported the decision of
Candace Cragg, the former Miss Florida,
to step down, adding that they are good
friends.


"I am very excited to step in and rep-
resent the both of us at the Miss America
pageant," she said.
Wilensky, who also holds the Miss
University of Florida title, is a member of
Kappa Delta Sorority and is an exercise
and sports science major at UF. She expects
to graduate with her bachelor's degree in
December.
At the Miss Florida 2005 pageant,
Wilensky sang "At Last" by Etta James, and
she is now looking for a new song for the
Miss America pageant.
"I have always made sure each pageant
I entered in had a talent portion because it's
my favorite part," Wilensky said.
Last year, as a Miss Florida nominee,
Wilensky participated in the Queen for a
Day program, which pampers pediatric
cancer patients by hosting parties where
each girl is crowned as a champion over her
illness.
Wilensky, along with other- nominees,
was also introduced on the field of a Florida
Marlins game in Miami.
Jennifer Herrington, Wilensky's manager,
said Wilensky, who is from Jacksonville, will
appear at charity events and hospital galas,
sing the national anthem at the Jacksonville-
Barracudas and Marlins games and par-
ticipate in other promotional events. Also,
as Miss Florida, she received a brand new
Cadillac.
Wilensky is the founder of the nonprofit
organization Literally at Risk, which she
started in 2002 while still in high school. The
program promotes the importance of literacy
in elementary schools.
Wilensky also enjoys going to elementary
classrooms to promote how important it is to
be healthy and happy.
Wilensky will be crowned as the official
Miss Florida in Orlando on Nov. 6.


Recent burglaries may be connected, police caution


By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Alligator Writer
srodriguez@alligator.org

A series of burglaries have
Gainesville Police speculating the
same suspect is responsible for all
of them.
A burglary that took place
Thursday at the Palms at Brook


Valley, 1101 NW 39th Ave., could be
connected with three burglaries that
occurred at Sun Bay apartments,
situated at 708 SW 16th Ave., said
GPD spokesman Keith Kameg.
Three of the four robberies,
which all happened in the past
three weeks, have taken place
while the apartments were occu-
pied, he said.


"We don't see this much oc-
cupied-home burglaries back-to-
back," Kameg said. "There are too
many similarities to
Public ignore."
Safety The suspect has
only robbed apart-
ments with female residents, and is
mostly after computer equipment
and credit cards, although the sus-


pect stole a gun at the Brook Valley
burglary.
The suspect is believed to be a
black male with dreadlocks in his
early 20's and of medium height.
"The community should be on
the lookout for any suspicious be-
havior," Kameg said.
The method of entry was
through a sliding glass door in the

are easy targets," Kameg said,
"Residents should take the proper
precautions."

SG encourages students to apply


Leak appreciates '12th man'


FOOTBALL, from page 1

With fantasies of a possible Rose Bowl
destination, they danced.
Chris Leak yearning to put pogo
sticks to shame- bounced into Jeremy
Mincey's arms. Siler trailed closely be-
hind. More of a solo partier, the linebacker
gestured to the roaring fans with flailing
arms. If they were not attached properly,
they would have surely fallen off.
For someone who knew the Gators
would win before they poured syrup on
their Saturday morning pancakes, there
was plenty to be rowdy about.
"When we got on the bus this morn-
ing, I saw how we prepared all week, and
I knew we were going to go out and have
a great game," Siler said. "The game was
won in practice that week, and we defi-
nitely practiced like champions."
Same thing with the fans, who, had
they not been restrained by flanking
security, would have flowed onto the
field, treating the playing surface like a
playground sand pit.
"1 love that type of thing," Siler said
of the fans' enthusiasm, of his interaction
with them after the game. "We have the
best fan support here at Florida, so it feels
good. It feels real good beating a team like
Tennessee that was ranked higher than
us, and it feels good knocking them off."
As if by magnetic attraction, UF's
players sprinted to their postgame sanc-
tuary, to the band and fans. This was no


post-Wyoming jog. It was no Louisiana
Tech shuffle. This was an all-out sprint, a
run away from last year's 30-28 Knoxville
disaster. They sang the alma mater louder
than ever. Among the roaring crowd lin-
gered some dazed Tennessee fans. The
stragglers were in no mood to celebrate,
in no psychological temperament to leave
the hypnotic scene.
What a far cry from the enthused
Gator Nation. Even though UF sported a
dawdler of its own, it was just Leak. He
shook hands with as many fans as pos-
sible by virtue of this practice he became
the last player to leave the field.
"We just want to tell all our fans that
we appreciate every one of them," Leak
said. "They're what makes the Swamp.
We want them and the band to know that
we're one team. They do an excellent job
being a twelfth man out there."
Wasn't the twelfth man Urban Meyer?
Running off the field like a heavyweight
after claiming his title, the beaming
Meyer parted through a stadium filled
with Urbanatics. They chanted his name.
If they could have canonized him St.
Meyer, they would have.
The fans were far more prepared to
celebrate this conference win than the
players, but the team did get a hang of
things after a while except for the party-
ing part. That presented a whole different
animal.
"I don't know," Siler said of his cel-
ebration plans. "I'll probably get with my
teammates and go out somewhere."


BOARD, from page 1


Philpot also said SG wants students on
the committees to notify SG of issues the
commission is handling.
"If it's something we think SG should
take a stance on, we'll take those measures
as necessary," Philpot said.
Most regular board meetings occur
once a month for about two to four hours.
Other than the time spent at the meeting,
it's up to students to decide how much


time and effort they want to put into their
position, Lannon said.
The positions last through Summer,
but students -are still encouraged to apply
if they will only be in Gainesville through
the Spring semester.
Applications are online at www.cityof
gainesville.org under the clerk of commis-
sion link. They are due Oct. 3 by 4 p.m.
Students are strongly encouraged to
attend a meeting of their board of choice
before the application deadline, Lannon
said.


Student withdrew complaint abruptly


HAZING, from page 1


Devine said he also offered to with-
draw the complaint if hazing was ended.
Devine filed the complaint with for-
mer Director of Student Judicial Affairs
Cyrus Williams, who left the dean's office
in August to attend graduate school.
Pi Kappa Alpha President John Allen
said Williams originally told him the
complaint wouldn't be followed up be-
cause it lacked substantial evidence.
When he resigned, the complaint went
to Crandall, who continued the investiga-
tion.
Crandall said Williams always intend-
ed 'to pursue the case and that Allen's
claims are invalid.
"At no point was anyone told nothing
was going to happen with this," Crandall


said. "It was with Cyrus' support we de-
cided to go forward with this. I discussed
it all with Cyrus."
If charged and found guilty of hazing,
Pike could face suspension and possible
removal from campus.
In an e-mail to Crandall, Devine said
he was withdrawing the complaint be-
cause it would become a credibility war
and also because he was confident hazing
would no longer occur in the chapter.
As of Thursday afternoon, Devine
said he still planned to follow through
with the complaint. He sent Crandall the
e-mail to say he was -withdrawing the
complaint at around 7:30 p.m.
Devine couldn't be reached for com-
ment as to why he made the decision so
abruptly.
Allen did not return repeated phone
calls.

Baby Gator cares for UF's young


* THE FACILITY CATERS TO KIDS 6 AND UNDER.

By ANNELISE MADSEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Though most may not have heard of it, one UF pro-
gram watches over perhaps the most precious Gators of
them all: the little ones.
The Baby Gator Child Development and Research
Center, located on Village Drive, cares for the children
of UF students, faculty and staff from toddlers to 6-year-
olds.
"Baby Gators, we're kind of the diamond in the
rough, kind of the hidden secret back here that some
people don't exactly know about," said Lisa Roberts,
assistant director of Baby Gator.
The program offers care and school preparation for
toddlers with a 15-to-1 student-teacher ratio.
Thirty-six years ago, Baby Gator was established
when the Florida Legislature ruled that all Florida
universities must provide day care for the children of
students, faculty and staff.
Funding for Baby Gator comes from less than 1 per-
cent of every student's tuition, along with enrollment
fees from the parents involved in the program.
"We're mostly tuition-supported," said Pamela
Pallas, director of Baby Gator. "We receive a very, very


small amount of money."
Because money is tight, Baby Gator has turned to the
Internet, selling baby clothes, bibs, coffee mugs, bottles
and T-shirts.
"The Web site is designed for awareness, for people to
reach us beyond work hours," said Maurice Murray, the
Web site designer and office assistant for Baby Gator.
Due to its small budget, upkeep and expansion of
facilities is difficult for Baby Gator. The organization's
growing needs demand new buildings. '
With the help of Intemrnet sales and university grants,
Baby Gator hopes to have another site able to house
more children by 2008, Roberts said.
On "We're trying to figure out how we can
Campus serve more children in the university com-
munity," Roberts said.
One way is to embrace diversity, as 25 countries and
20 languages are represented in the group of children.,
With so many youngsters speaking different lan-
guages, teachers find it difficult to communicate and
understand even the most basic of needs, such as going
to the restroom or wanting a snack, Roberts said.
Baby Gator is also an active research facility, with five

children's education, Roberts said.

UF engineers are designing a
spy aircraft small and maneuver-
able enough to zip through urban
jungles.
Micro Air Vehicles are un-
manned airplanes with a wingspan
of less than 2 feet, designed to be
capable of seeing and flying more
like birds. The small, autonomous
aircraft capable of zipping between
buildings, breezing through open
windows and making sudden verti-
cal dives can be used as spy planes
or to study remote wildlife.
"What we're trying to do is take
technology that nature has put into
birds and apply that to aircraft," said
Mujahid Abdulrahim, a graduate re-
searcher.
The basis of Abdulrahim's
research involves a new wing tech-
nology called morphing. He said he
was impressed by birds' ability to


morph their wings to perform com-
plex maneuvers, such as nose dives,
quick turns, hovering and abrupt
landings, by flexing and twisting at-
the shoulder and elbow joints.
"What we're trying to do is
take technology that na-
ture has put into birds and
apply that to aircraft."
Mujahid Abdulrahim
Mechanical and aerospace engi-
neering graduate researcher

The morphing research, under
the direction of mechanical and
aerospace engineering professor
Rick Lind, is being funded by NASA
and the U.S. Air Force. The aim of
the project is to develop an airplane
that can fly much closer to buildings
and other objects in an urban envi-
ronment, Abdulrahim explained.
So far, the Air Force and NASA
have provided $3 million for the


project, which is now in its third
year.
Another innovation -of the
vehicle's design is vision-based
navigation.
Equipped with cameras that
take snapshots of the surrounding
environment, the aircraft can use
the information from the images to
navigate around obstacles, includ-
ing buildings.
The challenge in using it for
aircraft is that the vehicle is moving
very quickly through a constantly
changing environment.
"When you have a change of
lighting conditions or weather
conditions, all these play a factor in
vision," said Ryan Causey, a gradu-
ate researcher working to develop
new technology to eliminate this
problem. "If I trained the camera to
see a certain thing, and then all of a
sudden I come around a comer and
there's shade on the building, it's go-
ing to look different."


Housing options


few for students
By JENNIFER FREIHOFER
Alligator Writer
jfreihofer@alligator.org

Students who lost their homes to Hurricane Katrina face
finding a temporary home in Gainesville after enrolling at UF,
but housing availability has limited their options.
UF's Department of Housing discussed several options for
housing transient students, including setting aside 20 spaces
in undergraduate residence halls, but couldn't because of oc-
cupancy.
"We were all set to do it," housing spokeswoman Sharon
Blansett said. "They made the decision to selectively accept
transfers in colleges that had space to accommodate them, and
we then waited to hear what the administration would ask us
to do. There's always a caveat to that: 'We'll let you know.'"
Though the department received no inquiries from students
for housing in undergraduate residence halls, it actively worked
with students to supply single-graduate and family housing.
"There have only been a handful of properties
participating in this. It's more about availability
than anything else."
Eric Blevins
director of operations for Paradigm Properties


Three apartments were held until Friday, and requests for
graduate and family housing now will be considered on a case-
by-case basis, said Rena Buchan, assistant director of Housing
for Village Communities.
University alumni also opened their homes to displaced
students, Buchan said, and some apartment complexes are
supplying free housing.
Paradigm Properties, which owns and manages 20 apart-
ment communities in Gainesville, is providing free, furnished
housing for displaced students through December.
Eric Blevins, director of operations for Paradigm Properties,
estimated that 15 students have taken advantage of the oppor-
tunity.
"We're-leased right now to almost 99 percent," he said.
"There have only been a handful of properties participating in
this. It's more about availability than anything else."
Whether or not apartment complexes can provide housing
depends largely on individual circumstances. For example, a
male student can't be placed in an opening with three females,
he said.
"Our goal is to make them comfortable," Blevins said.
"They've been through a rough time. If there's anything we can
do to make it an easier transition, then we want to do that."


A special ultraviolet camera makes it
possible to see the underlying skin
damage done by the sun. And since 1 in 5
Americans will develop skin cancer in
their lifetime, what better reason to
always use sunscreen, wear protective
clothing and use common senae.

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2005 E ALLIGATOR, 19


DREW from page 23

the score had been, let's say,
35-28 (my admittedly awful
predicted score), you'd have
to question UF's ability to
stop a team like LSU down
the road.
On Saturday UF's of-
fense faltered and it didn't
matter. No one doubts the
Gators have more offensive
firepower than an angry Iraqi
insurgent, but a funny thing
happened on Saturday night.
A defensive unit comprised
of a dwvarf-sized cornerback
and backup defensive ends
shut down one of the top
ranked teams in the nation.
We've all heard the Urban
legends of that deadly spread
offense, but did anyone really
think UF's defense the same
defense that let Mississippi
State's dance parade send
Ron Zook packing could
hold Tennessee to 7 points?
Suddenly, the Gators are
one of the most balanced
teams in the nation. After
a grueling off-season work


regimen that would make
Rocky Balboa shiver and
drink an extra helping of
raw eggs, a game of football
against a SEC team may as
well be kindergarten naptime
to the Gators.
Meyer's strange sum-
mer tactics worked, and he
passed the greatest test of
his young career. But just
days later another challenge
awaits Urban.
Defeating Tennessee
did have its consequences.
Ray McDonald and Andre
Caldwell two of the best
players on both sides of the
ball experienced the wrath
of Tennessee first hand.
McDonald's status is up in
the air, and Caldwell's season
is over.
Now, Meyer must perse-
vere without two key ingre-
dients. But he's won in the
past with much less talent,
and you have to think he'll
find away.
And if that's the case, gas
may cost well over $5 a gal-
lon before Meyer loses his
next game.


Gators ranked in the top-5 for first time since '01


UF-UT, from page 23


linemen and a quarterback who's
played for three years in the SEC,"
Meyer said. "Go get yourself 6 inches,
and let's move on and play football."
Tennessee then drove to the UF 19
before an instant replay overturned
a scrambling third-down completion
from Volunteers backup Erik Ainge
to receiver Bret Smith to the 1-yard
line. Senior cornerback Dee Webb then
blocked kicker James Wilhoit's 37-yard
field-goal attempt, ending what was ul-


timately Tennessee's final scoring threat
with 3 minutes, 56 seconds remaining in
the first half.
Starting quarterback Rick Clausen
returned on the Vols' next drive but
finished with no yards on two comple-
tions. Ainge threw for 147 yards in a
14-for-29 performance.
"I don't think I can sit here and give
you an evaluation right now," explained
Fulmer of his decision to shuffle quar-
terbacks. "Neither one of them played
very good, but the people around them
didn't play very good either."
Junior walk-on kicker Chris Hetland


connected on a pair of field goals in the
third quarter and clinched the game
with a 20-yard kick with 8:02 remain-
ing. Since its inception in1992, either the
Gators or Volunteers have represented
the SEC East in the conference title
game every year except 2002 and 2003.
Even with arguably UF's toughest
competition out of the way, and UF
earning a No. 5 ranking in the AP poll
on Sunday, Meyer isn't looking ahead.
"You saw what I saw," Meyer said.
"We are not a great football team. So
for us to look at anything other thn
Monday's practice.. .wouldn't be fair.


Despite McDonald's injury, Gators defense dominates


INJURIES, from page 23


required at a new position.
"Obviously he doesn't have the speed of Bubba Caldwell
... but I see his role really expanding," Meyer said.
UF also lost starting defensive end Ray McDonald-one
of the team leaders on defense-to an ACL injury. On Sunday,
Meyer still didn't know the extent of the injury.
While the Gators were able to regroup and excel without
McDonald for much of Saturday's game, any long-term ab-
sence could serve as a severe blow to a sizzling defense.


UF allowed Tennessee to score just 7 points, after giving up
30 points to the same Volunteers team a year ago.
Last year, UF finished a disappointing 7-5 and the Gators'
entire 2004 season was marred by defensive meltdowns.
Meyer credits UF's grueling off-season conditioning as the
main factor in the defensive turnaround.
"Everybody bench presses and does squats, but how many
people train the way we do?" Meyer said. 'It's as much mental
preparation in the weight room as physical preparation."
Now the Gators will prepare for Kentucky. CBS will broad-
cast Meyer's debut road game on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
Meyer said UF will not suffer any sort of letdown after the
emotional Tennessee victory.

Wuerffel honored


By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
aabramson@alligator.org

'A humbled Danny Wuerffel,
literally wearing the shoes of
former teammate James Bates,
accepted a humanitarian award
at halftime from the World Sports
Humanitarian Hall of Fame and
the Heisman Memorial Trophy
program.
SThe award was created to
honor a former Heisman winner
that has exhibited humanitarian
qualities following his playing
career. Wuerffel agreed to accept
the award back in April, but in the
aftermath of Hurricane Katrina
the award has taken on a new
meaning.
Wuerffel heads the Desire
Street Ministries in New Orleans;
a religious organization that tries
to spread its message to impover-
ished communities.
Before Saturday's game,
Wuerffel spoke to reporters about
the harrowing ordeal that has
shaken up his family, the organi-
zation and the entire nation.
"One morning I woke up ... it
was 5:30 a.m. and I was just weep-
ing for our city and for the people
they haven't found," Wuerffel
said. "I don't know that I've been
angry. I've been very sad."
Wuerffel had to leave every-
thing behind, including his shoes,
but he remained grateful that he,.
his wife and dog escaped safely.
"I don't know when we can get
back, I don't know what's going
to happen to our home," he said.
"We're moving forward right
now. When we can get back in the
city, however it looks, we'll have
a rtam back in there serving the
people."

WALK ON THE GATOR SIDE: Taking
a page right out of Tennessee's
book, UF coach Urban Meyer
once again led his team in a walk
around the stadium while thou-


sands of Gators fanatics cheered
on the stylish team.
Meyer calls it the Gator Walk, and
it's a replica of the Vols Walk, a
staple at Tennessee games for
years. The players exit the team
buses sporting dress shirts and
slacks amid a chain of fans.
As UF's stakes were raised in
its first meaningful game of the
season, the third consecutive ren-
dition of the Gator Walk received
the most fan support so far and
already seems to be growing into
a weekly tradition.

HISTORICAL GUIDANCE: Since ar-
riving in Gainesville, Meyer has
reached out to former UF stars
hoping to bring a family mental-
ity to the Gators. For the season's
first crucial matchup, Meyer
made sure UF's support network
was on hand to help.
Numerous UF legends
watched the game from the side-.
lines, including Chris Doering,
Jimmy Dubose, John L. Williams
and Danny Wuerffel.

STARTING OVER: For the first time
in his career, UF's DeShawn Wynn
could call himself the starting tail-
back. Whether he sat behind Ran
Carthon or Ciatrick Fason, Wynn
never managed to nab the starting
job in his first two years at UF.
This year, a one-game suspen-
sion left Wynn completely out of
the lineup for the opener against
Wyoming. Against Louisiana
Tech, Meyer started true fresh-
man tailback Kestahn Moore,
although Wynn ended up gaining
101 yards on the ground.

RECORD CROWD: Two weeks ago,
a record crowd witnessed Meyer's
debut game against Wyoming.
The record didn't last long.
A total of 90,716 fans wit-
nessed Saturday's game against
Tennessee, which is also the most
people to ever watch a football
game in the state of Florida.

UF FOOTBALL

Gators defense overcomes key injury to dominate Vols


By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
aabramson@alligator.org

After all the talk about Urban Meyer's
glorified offense, it was an undermanned
defensive unit that put the Gators in the SEC
East lead.
While numerous experts were predicting
a high-scoring affair in the first truly mean-
ingful UF-Tennessee battle in several years,
both defenses rose to the occasion.
UF's however, rose slightly higher, and
surprisingly improved throughout the game
despite losing a key ingredient.
"UF's star defensive end Ray McDonald
left the game on the fourth play of the sec-
ond quarter suffering an ACL injury the
extent of the injury was unknown following
the game.
Tennessee made its way down field and
scored on that drive, making McDonald's
injury seem catastrophic at the time.
JInstead, the rest of the defense picked up
the slack and didn't give up another point.


"Our entire defense is going to get a game
ball," Meyer said. "When a solider drops a
rifle the next one has to be there to pick it up
and that's what [backup defensive ends] Joe
Cohen and Derrick Harvey did.
"When I heard Ray McDonald was but,
I said 'my goodness, how are we going to
win?' This says a lot about our guys."
The most promising sign for UF's co-
defensive coordinators Greg Mattison and
Charlie Strong was that it was truly a team
effort. Several players stepped up at the per-
fect moments, halting a handful of threaten-
ing Tennessee drives.
Meyer said that the defense threw new
packages in that the Gators didn't show in
the first two weeks.
"We sayed those particular packages spe-
cifically for tonight," Meyer said. "I don't
think our secondary could have played
much better."
The plan seemed to work perfectly.
One player even redeemed an embar-
rassing performance against Tennessee from
a year ago to lead the defensive romp.


Junior cornerback Dee Webb seem-
.ingly did nothing right in UF's 30-28 loss to
Tennessee in 2004. Webb shouldered much
of the blame after UF's secondary allowed
Volunteers quarterback Erik Ainge to lead
UT to a stunning comeback.
One year later, UF could have easily suf-
fered another loss to the Volhinteers had it
not been for Webb.
After instant replay
overturned a Tennessee
catch that would have put
the Volunteers on UF's
1-yard line, the Vols were
forced to kick a field goal.
Webb While Tennessee al-
most took a 10-7 lead,
Webb had other plans.
UF's first blocked kick since the
Vanderbilt game last season also courtesy
of Webb prevented the Gators from fall-
ing behind 10-7.
Webb also tipped several Erik Ainge
passes.
"It wasn't redemption," said Webb of


last year's performance. "I just went out
there, showed my.skills and did what I had
to do." -
Several of UF's defensive players made
their presence felt on special teams.
For a special teams unit that was con-
sidered shaky heading into the game, ItF's
special teams suddenly seems like one of its
biggest strengths.:
. Early in the third quarter, Tennessee punt
returned Jonathan Hefney dropped a ball
deep in his ownr territory. UF cornerback
Tremaine McCollum was right there to pick
it up, and four plays later UF would score on
a Chris Hetland field goal.
Several minutes later, Tennessee at-
tempted a fake punt and Erik Ainge's pass
was broken up by UF's Tony Joiner.
Once again, the special teams play led to
another Hetland field goal.
"We're more aggressive this season,
but the big thing is that we're trusting each
other," said Webb of the entire defense. "We
know we had to pick it up on defense." ,

Gators pumped for FSU

VOLLEY, from page 22

Collymore was joined on the All-Tournament team by Angie
McGinnis and Marcie Hampton, but it may have been the play of
a freshman that stood out the most.
Gainesville-native Kelsey Bowers had somewhat a breakout
performance Friday night against IPFW, finishing with 11 kills on
14 attempts with no errors, amassing a .786 hitting percentage in
addition to her five block assists.
UF .coach Mary Wise has been very impressed by the speed
Bowers has been exhibiting at the net. .
"Her numbers are good by themselves, but she's still more
than what shows up in the box score," Wise said. "She's just so
fast, she had a play today where she went from antenna to an-
tenna against two low sets and dosed the block both times, She's
showing some real signs of improving."
The Gators now turn their attention to Florida State, which
comes into the O'Connell Center tonight for UF's final match be-
fore Southeastern Conference play begins next weekend.
The Gators defeated the Seminoles 3-1 last year for their 13th
consecutive win against FSU.
The Seminoles took the first game of last year's match, and
their celebration after winning that single game is something that
has stuck in the Gators' minds.
"Anytime any FSU team takes anything from a Gator they're
always excited," Hampton said.
"It's FSU. I mean, it's a rivalry, aind of course we're going to be
really amped to play them."

UF SOCCER

Gators fall to FSU, defeat UCF


By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Writer

Although they don't hold state brag-
ging rights, the Gators did exact revenge
against an in-state foe Sunday.
Following a 4-2 loss against FSU on
Friday, the No. 13 UF soccer team took out
their frustration on the road in a 2-0 vic-
tory against Central Florida. The Golden
Kiights knocked UF out in the first round
of the 2004 NCAA Tournament, taking a 3-
2 match in Gainesville.
"There's not of lot of love lost between
these two teams," UF coach Becky Burleigh
said. "It was nice to get this win on the
road."
Brittni Goodwin made her season de-
but in goal for the Gators (5-2), spelling Jen
Gardner, who suffered a broken cheekbone
in Friday's match. Goodwin, who started
32 games in goal prior to this season,
stopped nine shots to record UF's fourth
shutout in the last five matches.
"She was consistent," Burleigh said.
"That's what you expect from her."
Burleigh made the decision to sit
Gardner on Saturday, but expects the fifth-


year senior back in time for this weekend's
matches against Alabama and Auburn.
"They're willing to let her play with a
fracture," Burleigh said.
The win did not look pretty on paper.
UF picked up 22 fouls and had to make
seven more saves than the Golden Knights
to preserve the shutout.
..~... "It was kind of a
Sb difficult game to play
because of all the
fouls, especially on
us," Burleigh said.
"The game got kind of
choppy and it was hard
to get into a rhythm."
Burleigh
Ameera Abdullah and Ananda Erickson
each picked up goals in the first half for the
Gators on Sunday.
Two first half scores weren't enough on
Friday night, as FSU broke a halftime tie
with a pair of second half goals in front of
3,249 at James G. Pressly Stadium.
"I think the better team won today,"
Burleigh said. "They outplayed us."
The four goals were the most allowed
by UF in the series' 12 match history, which
the Gators lead 8-5.


The clincher came with 13 minutes, 27
seconds remaining, and FSU tacked on
an insurance goal about 10 minutes later.
Holly Peltzer scored both times.
"I don't really care about that last goal,
but that third one was tough to give up,"
Burleigh said.
The fierce rivalry showed itself through-
out, with each team notching 17 fouls and
combining for three yellow cards.
"It was really one of the most exciting
matches I can remember being played
here," Burleigh said. "It was like a playoff
game."
While Gardner's night included a string
of flashy saves, her play didn't merit com-
pliments from Burleigh.
"You can't get beat from 40," Burleigh
said. "That's a tough goal to give up and
there were two of them that were like
that."
UF nearly matched the Seminoles in
shots and took three more comer kicks
than FSU, but that wasn't enough said the
reigning SEC Defensive Player of the Week,
Melanie Booth.
"I'm not going to lie," she said. "I think
they did outplay us."


Collymore


leads UF

By DAN TREAT
Alligator Writer

This weekend represented a definite
step down in competition for the No. 7
Gators volleyball squad.
Just a week removed from playing
three top-25 teams in as many days, UF
(9-1) stayed home this weekend and won
its two matches fairly convincingly, a pair
of 3-0 sweeps of Indiana-Purdue at Fort
Wayne and UC-Irvine.
Senior Jane Collymore was named the
tournament's MVP after tallying a total of
22 kills and six service aces during the two
games.
"We came out and we beat both of these
teams in three [games]," Collymore said.
"We had a certain game plan, and to a cer-
tain extent we followed it."

GATORS FOOTBALL


Defense gives UF leg up in SEC race


Gators


Offense overshadowed in SEC debut


By BRYAN APP
Alligator Staff Writer
bapp@alligator.org

Fire up the coach-bashing
Web sites, the critics were right.
Perhaps Southeastern
Conference athletes are just too


big, too fast. Perhaps Coach
Urban Meyer's offense is a little
too gimmicky. In arguably the
Gators' most significant game of
the season, the Spread 'n' Shred
couldn't rip through a wet paper
bag. It didn't have to.
In Meyer's SEC debut


Saturday, the Gators defense
stole the spotlight as the offense
sputtered in a 16-7 season-defin-
ing win against Tennessee.
Much preseason hype sur-
rounded the possibilities of
Meyer's spread' option armed
with the world-class speed of

Volunteers and improved to 3-0.


SEC athletes. With one touch-
down and 247 total yards, the
Gators looked like a defected
version of Utah's mechanical of-
fense last season.
The UF defense, however,
spent last week explaining how
it would stop Tennessee running
back Gerald Riggs Jr. and the
Volunteers' rushing attack.
After helping hold Tennessee
to 66 rushing yards, one touch-
down and a scoreless second
half, sophomore linebacker
Brandon Siler said fans need to
get just as excited for sacks and
interceptions as touchdowns.
"They aren't going to have
a choice," Siler said, "because
we're going to give them a lot of
it to watch."
Junior receiver Andre
Caldwell provided the sole
bright spot for the UF offense,
scoring on an 18-yard touch-
down run off a reverse. Two
possessions later, the Volunteers
answered, knotting the game
at 7 with a season-long 83-
yard touchdown drive. After
Tennessee sailed a kickoff out
of bounds, the Gators took over
at their own 35, but three downs
later found themselves just
inches from extending the drive
at their own 44. Questionably,
Meyer opted to try to convert the
4th-and-inches play with a quar-
terback sneak from Chris Leak,
but the junior came up short.
"The thought process is that
you have four senior offensive

Broken leg ends Caldwell's season


* STATUS OF MCDONALD'S ACL
INJURY STILL KNOWN.

By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer

After winning arguably the biggest game
of his career, Urban Meyer spent much of
Saturday night in a hospital before returning
home for three hours of sleep;
So much for a celebration.
UF's 16-7 victory against Tennessee on
Saturday may have put the Gators in the
SEC East driver's seat, but it was a bitter-
sweet win for Meyer.
After the game, Meyer went to the hospi-


tal to spend time with Andre Caldwell, once
UF's No. 2 receiving threat and now a player
that likely won't return to the field until next
season.
UF's only touchdown
t of the game came courtesy
I of Caldwell, but early in
the third quarter he left
the field in agonizing
pain after the helmet of
Tennessee linebacker
Ryan Karl rammed
Caldwell in the leg.
Caldwell For Caldwell and UF, it
was the worst possible scenario. Caldwell's
underwent surgery on Sunday to repair his
broken leg, ending his season before it really
got started.


All of a sudden, junior receiver Jemalle
Cornelius and others must step into a major
role.
"I think Jemalle Cornelius made some
great plays [Saturday]," Meyer said. "His,
role in this offense just doubled, maybe
tripled. [Tight end] Tate Casey is another guy
that we have to get more involved."
Meyer also expects production from
Gavin Dickey.
Last season, Dickey served as UF's No. 2
quarterback, but this year has been delegated
to the third spot behind Chris Leak and true
freshman Josh Portis.
But Dickey spent much of fall camp learn-
ing to play receiver, and now his services are

unproven
A t 8 p.m. Saturday, the Gators
were college football's great-
est enigma loaded with
talent, but unproven, untested and
mysterious.
By 11-p.m., the Gators could truly
call themselves a football team for the
first time in four years.
The Gators did so much more than
defeat rival Tennessee on Saturday
night because in reality, a single 16-7
victory was equivalent to about five
wins'with a side of fava beans and a
nice Chianti.
Now, UF's destiny rests in the
hands of Mr.
Destiny him-
self. The last

yes, it was
that long ago.
The Urbinator simply can't do
wrong. Fourth-and-inches, deep in
his own territory? No problem. And
-even when the gutsiest call in Meyer's
UF career failed, Mr. Destiny basically
told the critics to screw their grand-
mothers, Florida football is under
new management.
"What the hell? Let's go block
them and get 3. inches. This is the
University of Florida," Meyer said.
"You know what? Next week we're
going to do it again. That's who we
are."
You can hardly call UF's biggest
victory in years a masterpiece, and the
Spread 'n' Shred did a lot of spread-
ing and little shredding, but now
all the Gators have to do is keep on
truckin' and UF's first SEC title since
Y2K will become a reality.
Sure, it's only September, and the
Gators still have to face a dangerous
Alabama team, LSU, Georgia and Jay
Cutler -and his mighty undefeated
Vanderbilt Commodores, but it was
how the Gators won that makes this
team such a promising contender.
