Student Government parties have long to-
do lists, and UF administrators agree that most
of the plans would benefit students if they
The Gator and Impact parties announced
the platforms they plan to implement after the
Fall election next week, which includes 46 open
Student Senate seats.
Gator plans to close portions of University
Avenue during home football games for safety
reasons, renovating the Reitz Union Student
Activities Center and the Rion Ballroom, and
lobbying for wireless Internet coverage in resi-
dence-hall common areas.
Impact intends to bring free printing for stu-
dents in every CIRCA computer lab, increase
wireless Internet throughout campus, employ a
director of Asian American culture and bring an
"end to legacy positions."
Gator Party spokesman Thomas Philpot
said his party's platform is attainable.
"We want to make sure that students under-
stand that we are putting realistic goals on our
platform and that our candidates can actually
accomplish them," he said.
Impact Party spokesman Adam Roberts said
if Impact's platform becomes reality, students
would see results.
"If our platform were to be completely
implemented, I think students would see for
once that a party is willing to act in their best
interest," he said. "Not everything needs to be a
one-half-million-dollar project to be effective."
Student Activities Center receptionist
Karima Douglas said Gator's plan to remodel
the offices is warranted.
"More people want office space, and they
can't get it," she said.
Twenty-two of the 700 organizations on cam-
pus call the center their headquarters, she said.
SG adviser Chris Cupoli said the center has
had the same square footage since the Reitz
Union was erected in May 1967.
"This has been a long-range goal for
student activities for about five years," he
,said. "At this -point, we haven't figured out
if we are adding on- or just redesigning."
However, SG officials and administration are
in control of the recent state-released Capital
Improvement Trust Fund money, which
Cupoli said is needed to improve existing
"One of the roles of SG is to advocate" for the
projects officials feel need the funds, he said.
"If our platform were to be com-
pletely implemented, I think stu-
dents would see for once that a
party is willing to act in their best
interest. Not everything needs to be
a one-half-million-dollar project to
Impact Party spokesman
Impact's idea of bringing free printing to
students at CIRCA labs is being embraced with
welcome, ink-stained arms.
Computer Operations Manager for CIRCA
Daniel Delgado said the labs have never been
able to displace costs associated with printing
"I think we'd be thrilled about it," he said. "I
think everyone kind of grumbles generally about
the price. I always hear some stuff about it."
CIRCA charges 10 cents for each black-and-
white page printed. Delgado said the printers
are strained on a daily basis.
"We really push the printers hard in the
labs," he said. "There's a lot of maintenance.
There's a lot more cost than just paper."
Interim Vice Provost for Information
Technology Marc Hoit said UF students were
billed $300,000 for 2 million printed pages in

Senate debates Alligator cartoon
By JUSTIN RICHARDS
Sparked by controversy result-
ing from a recent Alligator editorial
cartoon, Student Body President Joe
Goldberg issued an executive order
at Tuesday's Student Senate meet-
ing halting all Student Government-
funded advertising in the Alligator.
Student Body statutes require
certain notices to be advertised in
"the newspaper with the greatest
circulation among University of
The Alligator has the highest
student circulation of any print
newspaper, but Goldberg said UF's
Wednesday Update and the SG
Web site "have more hits" than the
Whether these two systems can
be considered higher-circulating
newspapers is at the discretion of
the SG Supreme Court.
When a senator asked how much
money the Alligator could lose as a
result of his order, Goldberg said, "I
have no idea. Hopefully, it's as much
money as possible."
Sen. Christopher Eklund ex-
pressed concern that a separate
Senate resolution condemning the
Alligator would be seen as an attack
on the newspaper by SG.
"We all know that there has been
a lot of tension between Student
the Alligator on
unrelated to prej-
udice," he said. -
Goldberg Tyler Redden
spoke in favor
of a resolution to condemn the
Alligator and urge local businesses
to withdraw advertising.
"This is for every single com-
munity that has been exploited and
,hurtby Alligator cartoons and Andy
Marlette's attempt to spark contro-
versy, and I'm pissed," he said.
Expressing frustration that
"every organization [he's] been in
has been criticized," Sen. Michael
Patrone suggested a new newspa-
per controlled by the university be
established on campus.
But "for now," he said, "let's
focus on the wound that's gushing
blood. Let's stop the damage."
Sen. Gordon Owen said he dis-
agrees with the cartoon but thinks
that Marlette did his job.
"The point of an editorial cartoon
... is to provide social commentary,"
he said. "Marlette does a pretty
good job at getting a good response
out of students."
The Senate also voted to remove
the Caribbean Student Association
from the SG budget, citing an inci-
dent last Spring when the organiza-
tion spent about $6,000 more than it
.had been allotted.
In other Senate news, the seat
representing both Keys and Springs
residential complexes was split into
two separate positions. The seat
representing off-campus ZIP codes
not listed in SG statutes was incor-
porated into what was District F and
will now be known as District E.

New condom hits market
By MORGAN GELLER
Alligator Contributing Writer
Condom use may be more
exciting thanks to a new tech-
nological form of contraception:
the vibrating condom.
TouchMe USA hopes to kick
off its Safe Sex is Fun campaign
to promote sexual health while
promoting the new product at
The product runs on a mi-
cro-battery, which is inside the
product's vibrating ring and
lasts for 20 minutes, Davis said.
"It's great for women be-
cause sex would be more. ef-
fective for young women who
wouldn't be so experienced,"
Davis said. "It's also a great
backup if the guy can't per-
"It's a win-win situation,"
said Rachel Davis, TouchMe
USA's marketing director. "Safe
sex is promoted on campus, the
students promoting the product
'make their own hours and get
marketing experience, and the
company has a chance to sell
and promote the product."
Davis is hoping to contact
organizations such as fraterni-
ties and sororities to have them
sell the vibrating

In addition, TouchMe USA is
planning to promote its product
at local bars and nightclubs in
the Gainesville area as well as
tabling on campus, she said.
The condom, which won the
Invention of the Year Award in
2003, is intended to stimulate
both partners, she said.'
It can be used without a
partner, and the ring is vacuum
sealed to ensure cleanliness.
Other businesses in
Gainesville are following in sell-
ing this new product.
"I'm glad it's out in the
store," said James Rountrye,
sales supervisor of Spencer
Gifts in the Oaks Mall. "It's kind
of unique, kind of new, and safe
sex is always a plus."
The vibrating condom
should interest people because
it's something innovative and
interesting, Rountrye said.
"We're the only store in the
mall that sells condoms, and it's
great that it's out on the floor
as opposed to being behind a
counter, and that way everyone
can see it," he said.
TouchMe USA expects the vi-
brating condom will have a posi-
tive market at UF, Davis said.

SG spends student
money on self-promotion
We know you're a little sick of editorials on how Student
Government spends your money.
We understand. We hate to talk about money too.
But the election is coming up next week, so we're going to
beat it into the ground. Maybe someone will care.
The issue we want to address today is all the money SG has
spent on trinkets and trips.
We're getting really worried about whether there's anything
left in the SG vault. The next time Student Body President Joe
Goldberg creeps in to take more funds for SG interests, only a
few neglected foam alligators will be left.
Last fiscal year, SG spent more than $14,000 on memorabilia
that supposedly advertises that they exist.
We're all for more access to SG, but those commercials and
cutesy toys actually scare us away.
We want to know how much money SG gives student
groups for self-promotion like that. Sure, some of them spend a
little on the fun stuff, but nowhere near that chunk.
This is really just more of a central, recurring problem.
SG looks at itself as an organization that is more important
than the student groups they fund, and officials see students'
money as their personal coffer.
SG exists to responsibly distribute student fees and represent
the student body.
It does not need funding beyond what's needed to properly
represent the students.
This advertising only helps spread the smiling faces of SG
executives; it does not help the student body in any way.
We remember when Student Body Treasurer Lindsay Cosimi
wrote on these very pages that, if elected, she would make sure
that "Student Government funds are spent... in the best inter-
ests of the entire student body."
So much for that.
But what really gets us going is her spiel in the'same column
about how SG reserves are swelling with money and need to be
spent instead of "collecting dust."
Sigh. Lindsay, if SG reserves were so huge, then it was a sign
the Activity & Service Fee should be lowered or at least kept
constant for a year. As it stands, SG raises the tuition-funded fee
every single year without fail.
It's too late for all that, though.. We're pretty sure Cosimi
stuck to her guns on that promise and helped throw all the
We hope there isn't a key chain or fluffy toy crisis soon.
Where would we get the money?
Our all-time favorite classic SG fumble is fiscal redundancy.
More than $3,000 was spent to send a few SG officials to
We definitely understand the need for our student represen-
tatives to go lobby the government for our interests. And we
know SG provides a few student organizations with funds for
the same type of trips.
We'll even agree with SG Lobby Coordinator Thomas
Philpot, who said it was "absolutely imperative" that the
Florida congressmen who legislate financial aid meet with rep-
resentatives of UF's student body.
But Tom, doesn't SG dole out $60,000 to a private lobbying
group? SG is also a member of the Florida Student Association,
which cost us almost $30,000 a year to join. We think we're
So why do officials need to pay for individual trips to
It's because all of the lobbying groups SG funds focus on the
state legislature. If officials think we need a face at the national
level, then maybe we should actually budget for that.
Perhaps SG officials should discuss these issues through the
e-mail features of their student-funded Blackberrys.

Democrats need to vote for Roberts
Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee have
questioned John Roberts, they've challenged John
Roberts and when their moment of decision arrives
Thursday, they should vote for John Roberts.
And the Democrats in Senate should follow suit when it's
There are certainly pragmatic reasons why Democrats
should acquiesce. Not least of these is the simple fact that the
Democrats are rather sizably outnumbered Roberts needs
only a simple majority of votes, and he has that in hand with
55 Republican senators.
With a defeat almost certainly inevitable, Democrats need
to ask themselves if the expenditure of money and resources
such a fight would require would be practical.
A battle over John Roberts would be more palatable if
rank-and-file Democrats had any reason to show confidence
in their party's leadership to fight the battle intelligently. As it
stands, the Democratic Party has shown a rather unfortunate
tendency to come out on the losing end of PR battles.
A humiliating Democratic defeat in this fight could only
embolden the president to try to fill Sandra Day O'Connor's
seat with the, kind of hardcore right-wing ideologue
who would make Roberts look to be the next William 0.
Of course, all of the above would be pointless if the battle
was a just one. From time to time, there will be causes so
noble they require decent men to sacrifice party, politics and
popularity in defense of them.
Shooting down John Roberts is not one of those causes.
For all the reasons why Democrats can't defeat John
Roberts, they're far less important than the fact that they
shouldn't defeat John Roberts.
No, Roberts isn't a conservative acolyte who will set back
jurisprudence 50 years. No, he's not likely to eviscerate lib-
Andrew Bare eral policies or destroy civil rights leg-
The Bare Truth isolation. In fact, the president deserves
email@example.com a lot of credit for nominating someone
who earns skepticism from the right as
well as the left.
Barring something truly extraordinary, Supreme Court
nominees. (or Cabinet nominees or any other presidential
nominees) should not be vetoed on the basis of political
ideology. When Republicans speak of not wanting "activist
judges," they only mean that they want Republicans on the
bench. Democrats should not fall to that level of hypocrisy.
Furthermore, rank-and-file Democrats, and all Americans,
should be satisfied, if not ecstatic, with their representatives'
questioning of President Bush's nominee.
Civil rights, Roe v. Wade, memoranda written by Roberts
while working for the Department of Justice these and
all topics were open for free and vigorous debate in the
committee room, and they will be open to the same in the
Senate chamber. You can't intelligently advise or in good
conscience consent without going through the healthy ele-
ments of discussion and dissent inherent in a democracy.
Roberts' performance, while smooth and impressive, was
hardly transparent. Too .many questions were "answered"
with unclear or evasive responses. In a perfect world, he
would have been completely forthcoming.
But Roberts didn't obfuscate any more than previous
nominees; he merely did a better job of it.
The hard-truth is that George Bush will not nominate
a judge who Democrats like. George Bush is a conserva-
tive Republican, and as such will nominate a conservative
That he's nominated someone Democrats can in good
conscience accept is going to have to be enough.

tion. So why don't we stop pretending like
we all do?
It wouldn't hurt to debate this topic while
promoting tolerance and understanding of the
opposing viewpoint. West brings up a heated
issue for Americans to ponder, one that cannot
be swiftly pushed under the rug by silenc-
ing an open dialogue on the issue of race in
America. Perhaps we could all take a step back
and consider the gray area that lies between
what has become a black and white issue.

For someone learning a complex system,
a system that took Heisman candidate and

an excellent job.

Also, most of the media is not praising
Urban Meyer; they are actually question-

Andrew Meyer watches or reads, but most
of the articles and news stories circulating

LGBT program begins
By DIANA MAZZELLA
UF's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and
Transgender Affairs introduced
an updated Friends Certification
program Tuesday in an attempt to
make the campus safe for students
of all sexual preferences.
The training session was de-
signed to help faculty, students
and staff develop skills as allies
to LGBT students and fight ho-
mophobia and heterosexism, said
event coordinator Ben Witten.
About 40 faculty, staff and stu-
dents attended the session held in
the Graham Gallery.
"[UF] is an accepting envi-
ronment...not 100 percent
but friendlier than others
in the state."
Student Government LGBT Stu-
dent Affairs Director
Though impersonal, hospi-
tal-like walls and high ceilings
surrounded the group, the night
became more intimate when five
students shared their positive and
negative experiences encountered
as LGBT students at UP.
Some parents were accepting of
their coming out, and some were
not. One student described how a
classmate derided her in a discus-
sion about gay marriage.
A transgender student dis-
cussed the difficulty of going
through a name change.
Student Government LGBT

Cortez said the training would

He said the training "enhances
the campus climate."
"[UF] is an accepting envi-

Impact seeks Asian American director
Growl talent chosen
By NAOMI PIERCE
Alligator Contributing Writer
Some of Gainesville's hottest tal-
ent competed Tuesday as students
enjoyed a mix of song and dance.
Solo vocalists and dance groups
gathered at downtown dub Abbey
Road for Gator"Growl Talent Night,
auditioning for the chance to perform
at the world's largest pep rally.
Judges for the event included
Gator Growl officials, three UF bas-
ketball players including Al Horford,
and professor Ric Rose of the univer-
sity's School of Theatre and Dance.
"We had a great time out here,"
Horford said. "It was fun."
Rose had seen most of the dancers
before and praised their good style.
"It was nice to see all the talent in
the Gator Nation," Rose said.
Of the 16 performers, seven were
chosen to show their.. skills at this
year's Gator Growl.
First place in the dance cat-
egory went to EN2RAJ for its hip-
hop moves, while Xtreme Dance
Company received runner-up for its
Dance group Apocalypse's mix of
rap and reggae was a crowd favorite.
They performed at the 2000 Gator
Growl and said it was time for a 5-

calist Tasha Youstin and Apocalypse.

Vice President for Administrative Affairs
Ed Poppell said Gator's plan to close portions
of University Avenue during home games is
probably not feasible because it would severely
restrict east-west traffic in Gainesville.
"I do not think you could close University
Avenue for football games," he said, noting
the importance of emergency vehicles. "That
would be a very difficult thing to do."
However, University Police Department
spokesman Joe Sharkey said a portion of the
busy street is already closed during Gator
Walk, when UF football players are greeted by
fans as they arrive at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
Both parties plan to. increase wireless
Internet coverage, but Impact plans to advo-
cate for the service across campus while Gator
is focusing on residence hall common areas.
Hoit said UF's wireless network has main
campus areas "pretty well-blanketed" and that
new equipment is on its way. However, he said
the absence of a tuition-inclusive technology
fee at UF hampers progress.
"That would solve a lot of our funding di-
lemmas," he said. "I'm running a huge deficit
this year. SG support may be very helpful.
They may be able to help fund some of it."
Both parties also want the Regional Transit
System buses to run Sundays.
Poppell agrees that Sunday operation is
ideal, but the idea hasn't been examined by a
"I can't say we've ever given it serious
consideration," he said. "I do believe that it
is something thaf should be evaluated. The
reason I say that is if you're going to have a
transit system that people are going to rely on,
it has to work every day. It would be a desir-
Impact wants to create the position of a di-
rector of Asian American culture at UF
"Everyone should have their unique issues
heard on campus," Roberts said. "That's what
the cultural organizations are here for. There's
no reason that group should be excluded."
Gator wants to make it mandatory for fac-
ulty members to list their textbooks on UF's
"Several faculty members are not participat-
ing in that program," Student Body President
Joe Goldberg said. "So when students go to
buy [books] back, they don't get as much
money for their textbooks."
Goldberg said undergraduate students are
losing $14 million annually because of the lack
of professor participation. If professors used
the program, students could save up to 62
percent, he said.

City group targets energy usurpers
By STEPHANIE RODRIGUEZ
Riding bicycles and taking

more UF students.
The Gainesville Energy
Advisory Committee discussed
options for conserving energy at
a Tuesday meeting.
The committee suggested us-
ing traffic circles and coordinat-
ing traffic signals to lessen the
effects of stop-and-go traffic.
"If we need traffic circles,
well, then students will get used
to them," said committee mem-
ber Anthony Brennan.
Brennan also advised UF
students to stop driving to class
and suggested UF eliminate
on-campus parking spaces to
keep Gainesville's traffic at a

Gomberg said she thinks the response

Career Showcase Guide
Career Showcase offers opportunities for all
By Alicia Bisanti
As students begin the new school year starting their
internship and job search is likely not first on their to-
do list. However, the process is not one that should be
taken lightly, or put off until the last minute. --
Students should attend Career Showcase on
September 27 & 28, from 9 a.m.- 3p.m., at the Stephen
C. O'Connell Center. Career Showcase is an event
hosted by the Career Resource Center (CRC) each fall
and spring, that helps students explore career options
and meet hundreds of employers that recruit through
the CRC in preparation for their internships, coopera-
tive education and full-time employment search.
Career Showcase will have a two-day format, tech-
nical and non-technical.
Day One, Sept. 27 (Technical) hosts employers
seeking candidates for technical positions in com-
puter science, construction, information systems,
scientific research, etc.
Day Two, Sept. 28 (Non-Technical) features em-
ployers who are hiring for positions in accounting,
banking, communications, consulting, human servic-
es, management, retail, sales etc. The new technical /
non-technical Day format that was piloted last spring
generated positive responses.
"The new technical/non-technical day format
gave students and employers a better understand-
ing of which day suited their needs and balanced the
flow of traffic," said Associate Director for Employee
Relations at the CRC, Tom Halasz.
More than 300 organizations such as Ferguson,
Pulte Homes, Boeing Company, McGladrey & Pullen,
and Southern Company are registered to attend
Career Showcase this fall.
"We've already surpassed our goal of 300 regis-
tered companies; now I hope that the number will
reach 350," said Halasz.
Halasz attributes the increased number of compa-
nies registered for Career Showcase to a number of
factors including; opening the registration process to
employers earlier, a smooth transition and energetic
start of the center's new Assistant Director for Career
events Kristen Muire, and a recovering job market.
Mark Lyden, Recruiting Relations Manager of
Boeing Company, believes that the upturn in the
economy has caused Boeing to look for additional
hires this year.
"We're always hiring, but with the. surplus, our
need is slightly higher," said Lyden.
When asked why Boeing Company returns each
year to Showcase, Lyden responded "The diversity
at UF is excellent in the students and in the different
It's really a one-stop-shop. Our company looks for
technical and non-technical positions, through UF's
programs we get what we need."
Employer satisfaction with the performance of their
UF hires also contributes to an increase in companies
recruiting through the CRC.
"We identified UF as one of the top Business (spe-
cifically Accounting) programs in the country and we
want to be at Florida to recruit the top in the country"
said Garry Tacket, Director for National Recruiting,
McGladrey & Pullen. "Florida grads who have joined
our firm have been successful in their careers, we
expect that to continue and they report that they are
Tacket encourages students to attend Career
Showcase and the Internship Forums as a way of
"It's never too early to find out about the process
and perhaps make contacts," said Tacket.
He recommends that students even at the freshman
level attend. Tacket went on to recount his interaction
with two impressive sophomores at the reception fol-
lowing the Internship Forum last spring.
"I have the names of two sophomores I met last
spring. It was too early in the
process for our hires, so I'll contact them before we
return to campus this fall."
Students can attend remaining Pre-Showcase
(Extreme Resume Makeover, Employer Resume
Critique, Internship F6rum) events or visit
www.crc.ufl.edu/showcase to prepare for Career
Showcase and their employment search.

Hear what students are saying about Career Showcase ..-
"I first went to the Career
Showcase in the spring of
my freshman year. I used
the CRC website to get the
basics on how to talk to
recruiters, what to say, and
how to approach companies
in your 'top 10' list.
"The most important
thing about my visit to the
career fair that time, wasn't
whether or not I got an internship, it was the
"I went back to Career Showcase, the following
fall; the same recruiters that I was interested in
already knew my name. The most important
thing is to head out to the career fair during your
"The networking ties you build and the
impression you give employers from going there
so early are huge bonuses towards getting an
internship or job offer later."
Guillermo Moratorio is a third year Industrial/
Systems Engineering student. He worked with Intel
Corporation in Colorado Springs, CO Spring 05
- Summer 05. He looks forward to a second rotation
with them next summer.
"My summer was
excellent! I went to Career
Showcase in sophomore
year to check it out because
I knew I'd be back during
my junior year. In my
junior year I researched
m different companies that
t ... I was interested in. When
I went to CS I had a small
group of companies that I
talked to. You know which companies you like
by talking to the employers during the day.
The amount of information the recruiters gave.
me on the spot and their willingness to spend
time talking to me at the fair helped me decide
who I wanted to interview with. I didn't have
any worries about being a Liberal Arts and
Science major because I was well prepared. I
knew how to interact with employers through
training at the Career Resource Center. And I
knew which opportunities were a match for
my qualifications. Be prepared for Showcase.
Research companies ahead of time so you don't
waste your time talking to random companies
you aren't interested in.
Get involved in extracurricular activities that
can demonstrate that you have a range of skills
and experiences outside of the classroom."
Brian Dubrow is a fourth year Criminology major.
He completed an Assets Protection Internship with
Target this summer.
Stephanie Maria Leon
I attended Career Showcase
in my junior and senior years
here at UF and was able to
attain an internship which
led to a full-time offer with
KPMG, LLP. My advice to all
students who are interested
in pursuing an internship is
to start early and be prepared!
Go to Career Showcase the
year before you start actively
looking for employment so that you can get a feel
for the event and start building relations with
recruiters and take advantage of everything that the
Career Resource Center has to offer. Good Luck!

Injury gives WRs heavier load
By ERIC ESTEBAN
Alligator Staff Writer
The challenge before Coach
Urban Meyer is simple. Replace
your fastest up-and-coming re-
ceiver and starting kick-return
specialist as you head into the
heart of a tough Southeastern
Meyer's receiving corps got
dealt its first personnel blow on
Saturday night when junior Andre
Caldwell went down for the sea-
son with a broken right femur. The
Gators have a host of unproven re-
ceivers that they will need to rely
on for big plays and touchdowns,
but the majority of the pressure
will fall on the shoulders of junior
"On offense, _you turn the heat
up on Jemalle, and his role in the
offense just tripled," Meyer said. "I
saw him play against Georgia last
year. He took a bad play and made
a great play."
Cornelius has proven to be a
valuable addition for the Gators,
particularly in the slot, where his
speed and elusiveness make him
hard to contain. In 2004, he fin-
ished the year with 12 catches for
154 yards and three touchdowns.
As a--target that was often relied
cr as the third or fourth option in
most plays this year, Cornelius is
looking to step up his game right
"The opportunity to come
out and play a bigger role in the
offense and contribute to the
team definitely motivates me,"
Cornelius said. "I have to play
full speed all of the time, and as
a player, you know when it's time
for you to step up."
"I think Kenneth Tookes,
Gavin [Dickey], and Tate
[Casey] are all going to
have to do a lot more and I
believe they can." '
He will also be counted on to
see time at the playmaking H-back
position. While Chad Jackson is
the main threat, Cornelius will also

Gators land 344-pound offensive guard 'Big Hurt'
By LOUIS ANASTASIS"
Alligator Staff Writer
UF's offensive line just got a whole lot
With the Gators losing tour starting of-
fensive linemen including standout cen-
ter Mike Degory due to graduation after
the season, UF locked up 6-foot-3, 344-
pound prep guard Maurice Hurt Tuesday.
Nicknamed the Big Hurt, the high
school senior plans on enrolling for the
spring semester to get a leg up on classes
and Urban Meyer's schemes.
"I'm coming for sure to Florida,' said
Hurt, a Baldwin High (Milledgeville, Ga.)
student, who made the official announce-
ment at a morning press conference.
"That's it. There's no changing my mind."
Hurt attended Saturday's UF-Tehnessee
game just to get a feel for the atmosphere,
but left awestruck by the program and the
opportunity for playing time.
"They didn't say I'd start or get a chance
to play; they said they'd give me a chance,
and that's what I like," Hurt said. "I don't
want anything given to me. I want to earn
it. So I'm hoping I have a good chance to
play at Florida.
Allwantis a shot and they're probably
going to give it to me."
Hurt's itch for early playing time com-
bined with UF's lack of depth on the 2006
line could be the perfect marriage. Though
he is just a three-star recruit according to
scout.com, Hurt provides the kind of girth
-the Gators lack up front. UF's heaviest
player, 320-pound Tavares Washington, is
"I love contact and I-get the job done,"
said Hurt, who also loves the prospect of
blocking in the Spread 'n' Shred. "It's just
whatI like to do hit."
Hurt's verbal commitment is non-bind-
ing until he signs a letter of intent next -
BLOODY TUESDAYS: Watch the fourth quar-
ters of UF's games closely, and you'll notice
The Gators are running and flying all
over the field and on every play. There is
no huffing, no puffing, no late-game fatigue.
This is by design and it starts with some-
thing called Bloody Tuesdays.
Under Meyer, Tuesday practices have
become a battle for survival, a physical test
so strenuous, players say games are much
"This whole season, I haven't even been
winded in a game," defensive end Jeremy
Mincey said. "I'm really shocked at that. ...
You don't know how hard you work until
you get in the game and the game's. a lot
slower than practice."
Decking players in full pads and pushing
them to the limit, Bloody Tuesdays are one
of Meyer's many schemes to. avoid late-
Saturday, it worked wonders.
, Said tight end Tate Casey: "Practice like
you're playing the game and play the game
like you practice."
CALDWELL RED-SHIRTED, MURPHY IN MIX:
After undergoing surgery to repair a clean
break of the femur in his right leg on Sunday,
wide receiver Andre Caldwell was released
from Shands Hospital at UF Tuesday. Meyer
also announced Caldwell will be able to
receive a medical redshirt since he did not
play more than three games. With Caldwell
out, Meyer will begin acclimating wide
receiver Louis Murphy to the receiving
corps. Murphy should play on special teams
FUMBLITIS?: After rushing for 68 yards
against Louisiana Tech, running back
Markus Manson nearly warranted more
significant playing time.
Manson, however, never saw the field
The redshirt freshman, albeit a favorite
of Meyer and a member of his leadership
committee, is battling fumbling issues.
Meyer said Manson is closer than ever
to consistent playing time so long as he
tweaks his technique.
"If Markus Manson has the habit- of
dropping his wrist below the elbow and
dropping his elbow, he will not play no
one will," Meyer said. "He would jeopar-
dize our chance to win that game."

* GATORS HEAD INTO SEC
PLAY WITH 5-2 RECORD
By NICK ZACCARDI
Passing a class with a B is what
marge UF students strive for.
It's just that kind of effort from
the UF soccer team that has Coach
Becky Burleigh concerned.
"I'm one of those players
who doesn't need [points]
to keep on going."
UF soccer player
Burleigh, who looks at the season
fractionally, said the team earned a B
grade for its opening third. '
The Gators finished their non-
conference schedule at 5-2, their,
worst record through seven games
"We're not ready to match up
against the best teams, losing to
Notre Dame and giving up four
goals to FSU," Burleigh said. "We
also had some good results against
some good teams, so that's how I
came to a B."
UF opens .its Southeastern
Conference schedule against
Alabama on Friday in Pressly
Stadium at 8 p.m.
ROAD TO RECOVERY: UF is on the
road to recovery after a rash of inju-
ries hit the team in the early part of
Freshman phenom Megan Kerns
suited up to work out on the practice
field for the first time in nearly three
weeks on Tuesday.
Kerns, who notched a goal
and an assist in the season opener
against Drake, tore her meniscus in
August and expected to be out four
to six weeks.
"We're working her back into
practice," Burleigh said. "This is the
first time I've seen her [practicing
with the injury]."
In addition, Ananda Erickson
and Amber Presnick, who missed
Friday's match against Florida State
with injuries, returned to action on
Sunday against Central Florida.
Freshman Carly Deiter, who
hasn't played a minute this season,
also is nearing a return.
"Everybody's coming back this
week, hopefully," Burleigh said.

goalkeeper controversy got a little
more interesting during the week-
end when starter Jen Gardner suf-
fered a broken cheekbone against

is an issue in terms of her vision."
Brittni Goodwin filled in admi-
rably in her first start of the season.
Sunday, shutting out UCF and re-
cording nine saves.
Goodwin has a week of practice
to take the job away from Gardner,
who picked up three shutouts in six
"All season that has been
a battle between those two,"
Burleigh said. "The way we look
at the keeper position is once one
person wins the position, then it's
the other person's opportunity to
try and beat.them out."
ON THE BOARD: Erickson notched
her first collegiate goal Sunday,
but that does not mean much to
the junior midfielder.
Earning recognition such as be-
ing named to an All-Tournament
team, something she has done
twice this year, motivates
"I'm one of those players who
doesn't need [points] to keep on
going," Erickson said. "The titles
are nice. They help boost my con-
fidence. It helps me grow."
