low-calorie snacks, applied their last
touch of bronzer and made sure each
strand of hair was perfectly in place.
The Phillips Center

into a runway Monday
as 31 contestants made their way
across the stage for the Florida Blue
Key Homecoming Pageant.
But only the three winners would
be on this year's Homecoming
Court, and they are Anne Imanuel,
Cat Jackson and Catherine Hough.
"I was nervous, but it was re-
ally great to hear my sorority sisters
of Alpha Delta Pi cheer me on,"
Jackson said. "It really helped me
get through the night."
Mari Wilensky, current Miss
Florida, and Jess Johnson, execu-
tive assistant to the vice president
for Student Affairs, presided as the
masters of ceremonies.
Wilensky will crown this year's
Homecoming queen at Gator Growl
on Oct. 7. Other winners included
Miss Photogenic Julia Weiss, and
Miss Congeniality Rebecca Gaff.

testants danced a choreographed

Inside the Southwest 13th Street underpass
from Norman Hall to the UF campus, graffiti
has covered nearly every inch of wall space
But a UF civil and coastal engineering
graduate student who asked to remain anony-

ing the south wall with white paint because he
said it was an "eyesore."
He plans to return occasionally to paint
over the fresh graffiti, he said.

like that," he said.
Because the underpass was not the graffiti
artists' property in the first place, he doesn't
feel bad for destroying their work, he said.
"I had some friends that said they like the

Gator Growl talent show tonight at new location
By ZACH WEISSMUELLER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Gator Growl Talent Night will proceed as
planned tonight despite a change in venue.
The event, originally scheduled at The
Venue, will now take place across the street at
Abbey Road, 238 W University Ave.
The show will feature singers and dance
groups from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. followed by a
battle of the bands competition until 2 a.m.,
said Ashley Metzel, director of Gator Growl
She said she expects the battle of the bands
competition to draw a large crowd, and the
singers and dancers will draw their own fans.
"We're going to have a real diverse group
coming out," Metzel said.
All of the show's participants will have the
opportunity to be selected to perform at Gator
Growl 2005. A panel of judges will choose win-
ners in each talent category and award prizes.
Metzel said The Venue recently underwent
management changes, and Talent Night had

Gonzalez also works in promotions for

planning to charge Student Government for
space. There is no cover charge for the event.
"Either way there's no money being spent,"
The owner of Abbey Road, Randy Grinter,
said he is not paying Gonzalez for bringing the
event to his club, and the only money his busi-
ness will make will be from beverage sales. He
said he thinks of it as a public service.
"There's no downside," Grinter said.

New Orleans mayor
needs to be locked up
New Orleans is screwed.
There is a crazy man at its helm.
Mayor Ray Nagin recently announced plans to al-
low 180,000 residents back into sections of the city by Sept. 26.
Fortunately, he suspended his plans Monday, citing the
chance that Tropical Storm Rita may hit Louisiana.
Even he can be convinced that some duct-taped levees aren't
going to survive God's tiniest sneeze.
But his complete incompetence wasn't completely halted.
Thousands of residents, mostly business owners, already
returned to the Algiers neighborhood when Nagin flipped his
Although Algiers received a minimal hit by Hurricane
Katrina and is reported to have safe drinking water, Nagin
should be fired immediately for displaying such incompetence
.and insanity. Then we should put a sock in his mouth and tie his
hands behind his back to prevent any further tragedies.
This same kind of political maneuvering led to the deaths of
so many New Orleans residents in the first place.
Nagin refused to organize an effective mandatory evacu-
ation before Katrina because he apparently couldn't grasp, or
didn't want to face, the catastrophe on his hands. Now he is
hoping to repopulate the city to show the world that everything
Is he willing to sacrifice his constituency for a public rela-
tions campaign? We're afraid to hear the answer to that one.
His own words reflect his disconnect from reality.
"We're bringing New Orleans back," he said. "I'm tired of
hearing these helicopters. I want to hear some jazz."
Apparently, Nagin has tuned out the nation's discussions on
how difficult reconstruction will be.
It's preposterous for Nagin to endanger residents simply be-
cause he doesn't want to see any more death and destruction.
It's even more nuts to think tourists will return to the city
any time soon.
The only tourists Nagin will be seeing are those hoping to
help Katrina victims, since he seems bent on creating more
Most of the city has no water or electricity, no 911 service and
no working hospitals.
That's no place for people to live, and it's the government's
job to keep them out.
Displaced residents always want to go back home. That
doesn't mean the mayor should let them.
After making this mistake and letting some people in Algiers
on Monday, Nagin almost immediately told them to evacuate.
So he created another mini-evacuation. We all know how
good he is at those.
And what would he have done if more of the city were re-
populated when Rita threatened?
The levees are useless. Buildings are unsafe. Shelters are
nonexistent, and roads are less than perfect:
Nagin could have created a repeat of his past mistakes.
He should be relieved of his position, and the federal gov-
ernment should take over. At least the latter is beginning to
show signs of intelligence.
Coast Guard Vice Adm. Thad Allen made his disdain of the
move public. To this valid criticism, Nagin brilliantly retorted
that Allen had made himself "the new-crowned federal mayor
of New Orleans."
These are obviously the well-thought-out words of a bom
Following this name calling, however, Nagin reversed his
position on the repopulation after a serious talk with Allen.
This mayor is like a 5-year-old playing dress-up.
He needs to go to the naughty comer before he causes any

With the win over Tennessee, Urban Meyer is

This is ridiculous.
The man has coached the Gators for all of three games
this season, not nearly enough time to make any definitive
judgment. As coach of the Gators, Meyer has now won
exactly one more big game than I have.
You know who else won a big game against Tennessee
early in his first season as Gator coach? Ron Zook.
I'm hot saying Urban Meyer isn't a great coach. My
point here is that we just don't know yet.
The Gators won on Saturday because their defense was
incredible. Who can say if that was due to outstanding
coaching or simply a highly talented group of players?
Who can say they'll be this good on the road against LSU?
No one can.
That's why I want everyone to slow down a bit before
deciding Urban Meyer is the best thing since sliced bread
(or Fun N' Gun, for that matter).
The sports journalism establishment has a horrible, ten-
dency to give coaches too much credit after wins and too
much blame after losses.
For instance, in the euphoria after Saturday's win, a
columnist from this very paper called Meyer names like
"The Urbinator" and. "Mr. Destiny."
Why? I wouldn't call him those names even if every-
thing that happened in the game were directly due to his

two times they were given outstanding field position.
But just as I don't give Meyer all the credit for the de-
fense, I don't give him all the blame for the offense either.
I think the defense was incredible mostly because they
have incredible players.
Similarly, I think the offense was poor because it's run
by a poor quarterback.
That's right, I think Chris Leak is a bad player.
I'm not questioning his arm strength or his tools.
Instead, I think he makes terrible decisions. He doesn't
know when to throw the ball away. That, coupled with a
weak offensive line, means he is always getting sacked. He
focuses on one receiver, which makes his passes infinitely
easier to defend. He can run, but he rarely does, and even
then he never goes for the extra yard. He can throw-on the
run, but the Gators never roll him out.
Honestly, I wish Josh Portis was starting.
Again, if we give the coach all the credit or blame, then
Leak's shortcomings are Meyer's fault. And I don't think
that's fair either.
I think Urban Meyer, and his spread offense, will ulti-

Letters to the Editor
Kanye West was hasty in his comment
I did not see the original cartoon printed
by the Alligator on Sept. 13. However, after
being told of its contents, I laughed.
Yes, I an African American female and a
double minority laughed.
It's preposterous that Condoleezza Rice
would ever stoop so low and use such a
And it's preposterous that everyone ex-
pects the Alligator to apologize.
We didn't protest the cartoons about (for-
mer Student Body President) Jamal Sowell or
Joe Goldberg, both prominent campus politi-
cians who were ridiculed for their views. We
didn't ridicule the Alligator when it printed a
cartoon depicting sorority girls with worms
on their heads being hazed by fraternity
boys. Yet we want to march across campus
when it uses the "n-word."
It has to be all or nothing. You can't con-
demn a paper an independent paper at
that some of the time, whenever you feel
like it. Frankly, the whole point of the political
cartoons in the Opinions section is to voice
the paradigms of an individual or group.
I think Kanye West, although a great per-
former, was hasty in his comment.
Whether or not the comment he made
about Bush was true, his stating the fact did
nothing to ameliorate the matter and instead
created a tension among Americans.
Rice's status is not a leap for blacks
With regard to his depiction of Condoleezza
Rice with Kanye West, Alligator cartoonist
Andy Marlette stated, "I can picture a black
woman saying that to a black man."
If it was realism Marlette was aiming for,
can he really see that particular black woman,
Condoleezza Rice, using that terminology?
His further willingness to defend his use of
the word "nigga" on the basis of its frequent
use in pop culture indicates that the full extent
of his knowledge of how black people commu-
nicate with each other is derived from movies,
TV and rap music. Reliance on portrayals in
pop-. culture leads to complete ignorance of
the ongoing, emotional debate among black
people about the use of the word "nigger" and
the nuances surrounding use of the word.
Amore significant issue here is the meaning
of the cartoon. Condoleezza Rice's status as
Secretary of State doesn't represent any great
leap forward for black people, nor is it any in-
dication of Bush's interest in setting an agenda
addressing racial inequality. Willingness to
embrace individual blacks is not equivalent to
addressing systemic inequities. Anyone who
thinks so is woefully underinformed.
Given that Rice was playing tennis and
shopping on Madison Avenue during the
week of the Gulf Coast debacle, it's apparent
that setting such an agenda is of little concern
to her. In fact Marlette might have more aptly
and realistically depicted Rice saying, "Forget
them! I'm doing all right myself!"

Impact has also questioned
the $3,338.72 lobbying trip to
Washington, Ei.C., that five top SG
officials took during Summer B.
But SG Lobby Coordinator
Thomas Philpot said it was "abso-
lutely imperative" that the Florida
congressmen who legislate finan-
cial aid meet the representatives of
UF's student body.
"I think that made [the congress-
men] pay a lot more attention to the
real issue and the real face of fed-
eral financial aid," Philpot said. "I
didn't take it as a personal trip."
Earlier last summer, the of-

Impact spokeswoman Allison

"Go up to the SG offices," she
urged students. "Ask for your wa-

The five judges who critiqued the ladies
were Shelley Meyer, Michael Blachly, Darius
Dunn, Roslyn F. Levy and Cynthia Thibault.
"The judging for the pageant is not just
based on beauty but rather 65 percent goes
to the contestant's GPA, formal interview and
resume of campus and community involve-
ment," Garrison said. "The remainder of the
judging is based on formal and casual wear
and, of course, the final question."

contestants saw themselves contributing to

they would want to become mentors to stu-

Ed Poppell, vice president for finance

property, maintaining the lights and the
pipes that run through it.
He said the university has taken steps
to prevent graffiti on the underpass, such
as allowing sanctioned artwork from lo-
cal schools and clubs on the walls.
He would prefer students work with
UF in efforts to fight graffiti, he said.
The student wrote in an e-mail
that he prefers to remain anonymous
because his effort is still "kind of a per-

McDonald to miss 4 to 6 weeks
* EARILEST POSSIBLE RETURN FOR DE-
FENSIVE END COULD COME AGAINST LSU.
By ANDREW ABRAMSON and ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Staff Writers
The No. 5 Gators received somewhat relieving
news on Monday when the team learned star defen-
sive end Ray McDonald would miss just four to six
weeks with a partially torn ACL in his right knee,
suffered in UF's 16-7 victory against Tennessee.
While McDonald's absence will certainly hurt a
defense currently ranked No. 2 in the nation, it was
initially feared that McDonald would miss the entire
After leading the team with 10 tackles for
losses a year ago, the new UF coaching staff shifted
McDonald from defensive tackle to end, the posi-
tion he played in high school. The move allowed
McDonald to play more freely and utilize his speed.
Now the Gators must regroup. Joe Cohen will
return to the starting role he held a year ago, while
redshirt freshman Derrick Harvey who could be
one of the more talented players on the team will
also see time at defensive end.
"I feel good about Derrick Harvey and Joe
Cohen. I trust them," said senior Jeremy Mincey,
UF's other starting defensive end. "Harvey's young,
but the more he plays, the more snaps he gets, the
better he can get.
"That's a big plus that Joe Cohen is already ex-
The news came one day after receiver Andre
Caldwell underwent surgery to repair a broken leg,
also suffered in the Tennessee victory.
"We're talking about two great young men," UF
coach Urban Meyer said.
"lay McDonald is a different man [this year] as
is Andre Caldwell. They were making such a good
push up to right now."
NOT ON THE OFFENSIVE: While UF's defense is sud-
denly overshadowing an offense expected to be
among the best in the nation, Meyer a coach often
critical of his offense said he's satisfied where the

working on coming out and taking this
game as a game we can use to get better

Eighteen yards and one block later and
Caldwell began to realize his destiny.
This was why he came to UF.
This was to be the season. Little more
than one quarter later, it was finished.
Running back the opening kick of the
second half, a helmet to the right thigh
ended his season. But as Caldwell was
carted off the field wincing in pain from a
broken leg, it was harder to tell who hurt
more him or his fellow receivers.
"I didn't think it was that bad of a hit,
but the more I saw, my stomach dropped
a little bit," junior Jemalle Cornelius said.
"We were just in a bit of a daze because
everybody expected him to just pop back
up. We saw he was down for a pretty long
time, and it just took the wind out of you for
a little bit."
When a guy like Caldwell goes down,
responsibility tends to set in as subtly as a
freight train to the solar plexus.
But it's OK. Breathe, Jemalle, breathe.
Without question, the Gators will feel the
strain of Caldwell's departure.
With his kind of speed, it seems Caldwell
was born for Meyer's system.
And the coach kept no secrets ab6iut

Killingsworth stands out as inside presence
VOLLEY, from page 16
said head coach Mary Wise had the team pre-
pared for FSU's emotional outbursts.
"[Wise] knew they were going to be an emo-
tional team coming in here, so she made sure we
were focused on what we were doing and not
worried about what is going on over on their side
of the net," Hampton said.
The Gators took game one 30-20, clinching the
game on an attack error by FSU's Lauren Scott.
McCray led the Gators with five kills on six at-
tempts in the opening game, while FSU hit for an
anemic -.049 percentage in the game. UF scored
6 of the last 7 points to claim game two 30-23.
Angie McGinnis led the Gators with four kills
out of the setter position while tallying 12 assists
in the process.
McGinnis has been working on her offensive
game, employing a sort of hook shot with her off-
hand to try to catch defenses napping.
"I think you have to try to catch them off-
guard, you have to be tricky with it and know
when to do it," McGinnis said. "Hopefully by
the end of the season I'll get at least five kills a
night that's my goal."
UF cruised to a 7-0 lead in the third and decid-
ing game before the Gators ended the game and
the match with a 30-16 score.
Sophomore Kisya Killingsworth had a career-
high nine blocks in the match, and finally began
to look like the strong inside presence the Gators
have lacked all season.
"Wouldn't you like to play defense around
Kisya Killingsworth?" Wise asked. "You don't
get many opportunities, certainly today, because
of the way she blocked."

* ROLE PLAYERS TAKING
LARGER ROLE IN OFFENSE
By DAN TREAT
Prior to this season, UF coach
Mary Wise was asked whether Jane
Collymore could be counted on
to be a dominant star a player
who would have the ability to take
over a match the way Aury Cruz -
did during UF's run to the NCAA
Championship match in 2003.
It's a tough comparison to
Cruz was a three-time first-team
All-American, while Collymore en-
ters her second season as the Gators
Collymore has shown that abil-
ity to take over a match. In UF's
Sept. 10 win against Southern
California, she racked up 30 kills,
including 11 of the Gators' 15 kills
in the second game.
While Collymore continues to
get the most swings on the team,.
UF has been spreading the love
around all season. Monday night
was no different, as eight different
players recorded kills for the Gators
in their 3-0 sweep of Florida State.
"Bottom line, when in a three-
game match when four players are
in double-digit points, that's great
point production," Wise said. "That
means that we're getting kills,
blocks and ace serves. We're getting
contribution in lots of ways."

Killingsworth had nine kill, and
a career-high nine blocks out of the
middle, and McCray recorded eight
kills and two blocks.
"We have so many players
averaging over two kills a game,"
McCray said. "Teams have to
worry about defending all different
spots on the floor, so it's really go-
ing to help us."
As last year's Southeastern
Conference Freshman of the Year,
McGinnis has the task of getting
the ball to where all of her various
weapons can hit it. She doesn't,
however, take into account how
many sets are going to each player.
"As a setter you really don't
think about it that way," she said.
"It depends on what they're do-
ing. If they're going to block our
outside hitters then I'm going to
try to give most of the balls to our
For her part, Collymore believes
that distributing the ball among all

team if the ball can go to five or six
really strong players rather than
one person," she said. "Because if

standpoint, if the defense knows
the ball is going to one person
over and over again, they'll kind
of stand there."

New defensive scheme showing results
By ANDREW ABRAMSON
Alligator Staff Writer
No offense Urban Meyer, but Chris
Leak and Co. are getting overshadowed
by an unlikely bunch of headliners.
After shutting down Tennessee's of-
fense in Saturday's 16-7 victory against
the Volunteers, UF's defense is second to
Not only are the Gators giving up the
least yards in the Southeastern Conference,
but also the 199 yards allowed per game is
second best in the entire NCAA, trailing
Meyer's spread offense and UF's ar-
ray of talented receivers received all the
preseason buzz, but the Gators scoring of-
fense currently ranks just sixth in the SEC
and 45th in the nation.
And it was UF's defense that spent
much of the summer trying to shed the
label of late game choke-artists.
"If you watch film on us, you can see
we're chasing the ball better than last year,"
linebacker Earl Everett said. "The d-line is
playing better, the linebackers are holding it
down more. I think we're more aggressive
than last year."
Last year's defense ranked just sixth
in the SEC, and virtually the same unit
returned minus star linebacker Charming
But the defensive players credit much
of the turnaround to new defensive coor-

After linebacker Earl Everett and the Gators held Tennessee to -4 rushing yards in the
second half, UF's scoring defense ranks No. 2 in the nation.
with Charlie Strong, the only holdover
from the previous coaching regime.
While the defense was put through the
same grueling off-season workouts as the
rest of the team, Mattison brought a new
aggressive, blitz-heavy philosophy to
the defense. Suddenly players that were
mediocre at best last season rank among
the SEC leaders in various statistical cat-
Although the defense may experience a
slight drop-off now that starting defensive
end Ray McDonald is expected to miss
four to six weeks with an ACL injury in
his right knee, even career backups have
been starring for UF this season.
At 5-foot-8, Vernell Brown spent much
of his career floating from position to po-
sition while seeing little action. This year,
the senior nabbed a starting cornerback
job and currently leads the Gators with
"After seeing these kids work all win-
ter, I knew they had a chance to be pretty
darn good because they showed pride and
they showed work ethic," Mattison said.
"They're a year older. I really think
they believe in what we're doing and I
think they want to leave here knowing.
that they've had a chance to do something
Mattison said head coach Urban Meyer
knew exactly what he was doing when he
assembled a staff that included Mattison,
Strong and other respected defensive
minds like cornerbacks coach Chuck
Heater and safeties coach Doc Holliday.
"There's no egos," Mattison said. "That
to me is special. We all have the same
Mattison realizes it takes more than
motivational speeches for his defense to
realize what its capable of achieving. So he
spends hours showing game film from the
NFL and highlights of some of Mattison's
previous stars at Notre Dame, including
current Baltimore Ravens star defensive
end Anthony Weaver.
"If they know the way you coached
